True. Accept that Britney's video is very strange, so I can see the connections to mind control pointed out in the article.

Have you ever seen Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut?

If we put a location into Golarion that we can't do an Adventure Path about, we screwed up and shouldn't have put that location into Golarion in the first place.

I could see a problem with one or more of them. For example:

Nex - This is Eric Mona's baby. And he is far to swamped with his work for Paizo to have time to work on it.

Taldor - Counterwise, Joshua J. Frost created this realm, and he has moved on from Paizo.

Beyond the Inner Sea - While Distant Shores opened that up a little bit. Golarion beyond that region (or the Dragon Empires) is still too poorly defined for an AP to work. (It would be like introducing a whole new setting.)

So uh, what happens re: Hellion if they destroy the arachnid robot (and scrapyard robots), but completely forget that the central processor exists?

This may have just happened.

While Hellion will be in a pickle, he won't be finished. (Any remaining servitors he has will still receive spells.)

And once he gets back in action, he may have an issue or two with the heroes.

James said that Westcrown is in it's original state before CoT so DMs could tailor it as they see fit so.

1.Delvehaven sealed and Morrowfall still there

James said the exact opposite.

Really?

I know that you had been trying to keep from advancing Golarion's timeline.

So this decision seems a bit strange.

Hello! Will this mean Shadowbeast/Ilnerik shenannigans? I suppose it would be very ironic to players who played CoT and fought the Shadowbeasts in order to free the city and now have to potentially team up with Ilnerik.

Actually, the coexistence of these two APs in Westcrown might be a problem.

You would lose XP for losing a familiar in 3.5?
PHB, pg. 54 wrote:

If the familiar dies or is dismissed by the sorcerer, the sorcerer

must attempt a DC 15 Fortitude saving throw. Failure means he
loses 200 experience points per sorcerer level; success reduces the
loss to one-half that amount. However, a sorcerer’s experience
point total can never go below 0 as the result of a familiar’s demise
or dismissal. For example, suppose that Hennet is a 3rd-level sorcerer with 3,230 XP when his owl familiar is killed by a bugbear.
Hennet makes a successful saving throw, so he loses 300 XP, dropping him below 3,000 XP and back to 2nd level (see the Dungeon
Master’s Guide for rules for losing levels). A slain or dismissed
familiar cannot be replaced for a year and day. A slain familiar can
be raised from the dead just as a character can be, and it does not
lose a level or a Constitution point when this happy event occurs.

Pity that wrinkle was dropped from Pathfinder. :(

I've been looking for any text about orcs in Numeria; they're found all over, but with no description about whether orc tribes openly exist there. I think the barbarian tribes would probably make short work of any orc settlements; the plains don't afford a lot of cover. The Technic League uses them as slaves/mercenaries.

My conclusion is that there are probably several Darklands orc tribes beneath Numeria. A significant portion of half-orcs probably escaped from them.

The way I see it, Androffa perhaps being in a no-magic zone actually protects it from direct assault by the Dominion of the Black, much of whose technology depends on magic to keep it all working together.

It would also explain the Divinity's susceptibility to the Dominion's attacks.

I agree. And, admittedly "cute girl in a razor-blade catsuit" is very much a part of what made her popular in the first place.

This would be usable almost immediately.
** spoiler omitted **

That would add a fine element of local flavor. One metal scavenged from the fragments of the starship is glaucite, an iron and adamantine alloy. The usual opinion about glaucite is that "the metal isn’t much better than steel for forging weapons or armor, and the process of extracting the adamantine from it is so expensive and time consuming that the resulting adamantine isn’t worth the effort," but Torch had the torch for aiding extraction, so adamantine would be more common in Torch.

Problem solved.

And it would also give her a moment to shine against the Collector Robot in area C12.

Because of the "planet killer weapons" of A New Hope and Return of the Jedi, this element was what made the film feel repetitive.

I'm going to second Reign of Winter.

It will also allow the GM to switch APs almost from where the characters are now. (A kind GM would also let the heroes buy appropriate equipment before shoving them through the portal.)

Finally got to see the movie. It was pretty good.

One thing I don't understand is those who say it was a pure re-hash of A New Hope. I saw elements of the original trilogy throughout, and some excellent homages.

A rehash. Those folks are smoking some bad s+@+. Or they're just idiots.

Droid escapes from the Empire/First Order carrying information that both the Empire/First Order and the Rebel Alliance/Resistance. It crashes on a desert planet, where it soon meets the hero of the story, Luke/Rey. This hero is found to be force sensitive. Through the Empire/First Order's efforts to recapture the droid, the hero meets the main villain, Darth Vader/Kylo Ren. The Rebel Alliance/Resistance learns of the existence of a planet-killer weapon (apologies to Babylon 5 for stealing their terminology). The hero's mentor, Obi-Wan/Han Solo is killed by the main villain. The hero confront's the main villain, and barely escapes with his/her life. Largely through the actions of the hero, the planet-killer weapon is destroyed.

I mean, cmon? They could have at least made Jakku into something other than a desert planet. Hell, they could have made it an ICE planet and at least stolen a note from ESB.

You forget that Poe played the role of Princess Lea (in that he was captured leading to an interrogation scene).
