You know what would be cool?
A Campaign Setting: "Inner Sea Dark", a "what if" book, which shows how the political and geographical landscape would look if the players had failed and the bad guys had won.
-"Varisia after Karzoug's Rise",
Wait a minute - the Ghul that i know of (from Bestiary 3) only has orange flame behind/underneath it's skull, so why the green glow? :-o
I assume you saw a render picture at Paizocon?
Personally i´m excited about the timeline being advanced (which strictly only means that it´s not 4707 anymore, but 4717/4718).
The best way to do this is probably like it was being done before in "Shattered Star" and "Hell´s Rebels", by offering information inside the AP about both versions of play-style.
Very few Adventure Paths outcomes are even able to change the political or geographical landscape of Golarion (IF the PCs win).
So far there has been a "Pathfinder Chronicles: Campaign Setting" in august 2008, which got replaced by the "Inner Sea World Guide" in march 2011.
If we assume that there will really be a significient change in Avistan by the end of AP#132 (july 2018), it will be the first one in 10 years, something which may be okay, less the World of Golarion may seem to be too static.
Personally i´d like an "Avistan" hardcover, but only after most of the following have received their own campaign Setting books:
Considering each year brings 2-3 new nations in the Campaign Setting line, it will take 4-5 years until each has received their own book.
So 2021 or 2022 could bring a new "Complete Avistan" or "Inner Sea World Guide" hardcover (and by then it would definetly be okay to advance the timeline to include certain AP happenings imo). :-)
This also involves information about the first Adventure Path of 2018, so only read it if you wan´t to know about that.
The preview for the "War for the Crown" Adventure Path (february 2018 - july 2018), states that there will be Pathfinder Battles miniature tie-ins!
The fact that this AP takes place in Taldor, especially mentions civil war, intrigue, "Princess Eutropia" and will probably partly adapted minis from artwork in the upcoming "Taldor - The First Empire" Campaign Setting (december 2017), makes me think the minis will be part of 2018s yet untitled "PFB Set 14" (maybe named "War for the Crown"? ;-)).
There were also some other Pathfinder Battles news from Paizocon i will put into spoilers:
The preview for the "Ruins of Azlant" Adventure Path (august 2017 - january 2018), states that there will be Pathfinder Battles miniature tie-ins!
These will most probably be within the Maze of Death set (october 2017), but maybe we´ll get a boxed set? ;-)
6 MAZE OF DEATH preview renders from Paizocon:
it takes a while before the picture is finished loading, but it works. ;-)
Personally i´m very excited that the "Fire Elemental Lord" seems to have been replaced with the "Huge Water Elemental", as it is the only huge elemental not yet covered by old D&D minis.
Let´s also not forget, that Maze of Death will have another large plant creature with the "Viper Vine" (Bestiary 2 page 279), a "Ghul (Bestiary 3) and probably more than one Ratfolk (Bestiary 3 again) minis!
It will happen eventually. But not so soon. The most logical step is to use the (hopefully) more streamlined rules of Starfinder together with Pathfinder Unchained (which was a well received foray into a 2nd edition).Personally more and more of my campaigns are breaking down in book 5 of an AP, as the prep time is way too long, combat breaks down because of too many, too complicated spells and people are not enjoying gameplay anymore.
Starfinder having only 6 spell levels sounds very good to me.
Back on topic: I expect renders from the next "Pathfinder Battles: Maze of Death" miniatures set and actual Starfinder minis pictures! :-)
Okay, at this point i assume that we will get pocket editions of every single Bestiary volume at least.
Maybe not Bestiary 6 for some time, but that is understandable, as the hardcover needs to sell through it´s first printing first.
As i primarily use Bestiary 1-4 when GM-ing, this is another step in lightening my load - instant buy! :-)

Picked up this book this week. I'm glad to see Nirmathas fleshed out. I would have liked a tad more detail, but it works. I've been running a campaign in Nirmathas for two years, so it's good to have more info on places like Crystalhurst and Tamran. It's not too fleshed out so as to invalidate my own campaign developments and I like that. I was worried that I might have to retcon some things.
Nirmathas gets more fleshed out in "Ironfang Invasion" #1-#4 (AP #115: Phaendar, #116: Chernasardo Forest, #117: Longshadow & Nesmian plains & #118: Kraggodan).Personally i felt that Molthune was well fleshed out, but Nirmathas got only half.
Now that i have Ironfang Invasion #1-3, i know it´s true - the rest is in there. ;-)
Welcome to the boards, Rotolord!I´m always happy when somebody gets something positive out of my endless ramblings. ;-)

Glad to make you smile, Steve. ;-)
Maybe you´ll get a laugh out of this too:
Here´s what Wizkids wrote:
We hope to have an update on the D&D Icons of the Realms Set 7 next week. Thanks for your patience.
And here is what Dungeons & Dragons wrote:
"Unfortunately we do not have any information we could provide at this time, however we're more than happy to get feedback along on your behalf that you'd appreciate some previews before release! Thank you for your patience, and have a great day!"
The missing 2016 promos are now available:
In other news:
Three weeks until the release of the "D&D Icons of the Realms Miniatures Epic Level Starter Set 2017".
Six weeks until the release of the "D&D: Icons of the Realms Set 7", of which the title still hasn´t been revealed, nor any details beyond that it has 55 minis.
It looks like we will soon need updated warehouse numbers - maybe in june after Paizo Con is over? ;-)
It also seems like the "Pathfinder Chronicles Miniatures" and the glassware sell very very slow - maybe a slight price reduction (if possible) would change that?
Keep up the great work store team! :-)
I should get my case on Monday and will start reviewing. However, this set looks more like the lower quality of their DnD line. Paint jobs look bad.
The paintjobs for ALL minis of COMMON rarity are really really good, as are the paintjobs for most UNCOMMONS (Banshee, Cabbagehead & Skeleton Champion being the exception).But the paintjobs for quite a few RARES are really bad:
Personally, i like having so many useful common and uncommon minis of such great looking quality, but it kinda defeats the purpose of the rare miniatures (the Emperor and Queen minis are great looking, though!).
It certainly isn´t as bad as the D&D line paintjob!

Thanks Berk, i love your pics and always download them. :-)
I wonder if we'll get a "Maze of Death" preview tonight?
Unfortunately, even if you have all Pawn sets & boxes, there will still be creatures that you won't have (like the Formless Spawn or Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath for this AP).
The case where no amount of Pawns helps you, is when it comes to gargantuan or colossal creatures.
You best use toys for them, the T-Rex toy from Schleich has the exact right measurements to fit into 4 squares, as have a lot of others (like the Phoenix toy from Safari).
So, the previews thusfar have had 51 minis (assuming the Court is all under a single "number"), but this entry mentions 52 minis. Is there a surprise in our future?
#1 (Dog) through #44 (Grey Maiden Dragon Rider) are creatures, plus 6 Dungeon Dressings for a total of 49 different minis in the blind boosters.
The Incentive has #50, #51 & #52: Dr. Davaulus, Glorio Arkona & Gnome Executioner.
