2) Ular Kel, capital of Karazh. Mentioned in a Sutter web fiction. Probably Hun themed based on the horse lord descriptions on the wiki. 2nd on my hopes

We confirmed at PaizoCon that this was indeed the city being detailed in central Casmaron.

The real shame is that they can't even read this thread to see that their illiteracy is causing anyone such turmoil. How will they ever know that they are breaking the fundamental rules of reality?

Nice backstory, Mark!

So here's the million-dollar question: have YOU decided what Yoon's original given name was and is it going into the Vic's Vault of Paizo Secrets? ;-)

I don't think Vic is the one managing that vault, though if he is, it's even safer than you imagine, because no one else knows about it.

Is Paizo in $$$ trouble?

No, but as with any business, we are continually performing cost/benefit analysis. In the case of book pricing increases, these are largely due to inflation and the rising cost of production. For the web fiction, Sutter pretty clearly addressed the reasons behind the end of the line—it's done its job and our resources are now better spent elsewhere.

Will there be a Bestiary detailing new Devils or Asuras?

Also, does anyone have any word on a possible Devils Revisited manual?

This book follows the same format as past "Unleashed" books, so no dedicated bestiary section presenting new monsters. That said, two of the individual creatures that receive statistics in the book are new unique creatures rather than variants of existing devils.

As mentioned above, there are currently no plans for "Devils Revisited" but that doesn't mean we won't ever do one. It's just not something currently being worked on or locked in as a future project.

Because it's not done. It hasn't been developed, edited, illustrated, laid out, or budgeted for in terms of both time and production costs.

I had the pleasure of working closely with you for a couple seasons of PFS, Mike, and they were among the best years I had working on the campaign. You've done amazing things with it since taking over. I still remember getting word that you were coming onboard (I was at home playing Half-Life 3 when Erik called me) and it's been incredible seeing what you've done since then. Best of luck in your future endeavors! I look forward to catching up one last time while you're in your Paizo blues at Gen Con.

A little sad that the phantom of her husband isn't able to communicate with her in some way, at least to let her know that he is genuine and provide some level of comfort. :(

Great story all the same, though!

Oh, they can communicate. But his memories of life are likely very spotty, and he may not know exactly what emotion caused him to remain on the mortal coil instead of moving on. It is certainly an aspect of the character meant to be explored in the future, either in something Paizo releases or among players who are using her as a PC.

We have not established a specific organization dedicated to protecting her like we have the Ulfen Guard in Taldor or the Gray Maidens in Korvosa. If only we were going to be focusing our attentions on Cheliax in the near future, because an AP or two there would be a great opportunity to flesh this out.

I'm really digging the show. I stayed up several hours past my bedtime last night watching "just one more episode" and imagine I'll be doing something similar tonight. I hope it gets a quick second season pick-up like Daredevil did.

Why is there a half-ogre template if we already have ogrekin?

The ogrekin template can only be added to Medium humanoids, while the half-ogre can be applied to other giants. So the new template opens up the possibility for half-ogre, half-hill giant monstrosities.

Every attempt to manufacture them on a large scale has resulted in factory fires, jammed equipment, and very poor safety ratings. I don't think spreading them throughout the world would be in humanity's best interest.

No, you're not missing anything. The Cajuns are just being intolerant of regional dialects, which is weird when you consider Creole. In any case, I was the "offending party" and I'm not sorry. Crawdads forever!

Mark Moreland stole my pen while playing Legendary. Who can I talk to about this? :P

I didn't steal it, you walked away before I could give it back. If you would like, I can have it placed in your sidecart and it will be returned along with your next subscription shipment (that's totally not a hassle, right Customer Service team?). In any case, the pen served me well for the rest of the con, and for that you should feel nothing but pride.

We confirmed at PaizoCon that the six cities are located in (and written by): Arcadia (Adam Daigle); central Casmaron (James L. Sutter); Iblydos (John Compton); Kaoling (Rob McCreary); southern Garund (Crystal Frasier); Vudra (me!)

We'll have more information as the book gets closer to release.

I liked that I got to see so many fans, volunteers, players, families, and business partners all concentrated in one hotel! So much Pathfinder-related fun!

The snooze button on my alarm clock could have worked better by allowing me to sleep in just a few more minutes each time I pressed it.

I suggest next year that everyone who didn't go to PaizoCon go.

Just like Marvel/Disney marketing, Black Widow is omitted :(

What is that scenery?

To be honest, I really looked for her. Among the thousands of Clix I have, it can be really hard to find any single figure, especially when said figure is relatively small and mostly black. I did find Gamora, but the GotG weren't as good a fit for this fight as the Avengers. Maybe next time I run it?

As for the terrain, those are something Lisa bought for the office from a Kickstarter, but what company produces them or if they're still available, I don't know.

It's also worth noting that the creative content of the novels is still being handled by Paizo. So if you've liked the level of diversity and representation of women and queer characters in past Pathfinder Tales novels, expect that to remain. While Tor is publishing the books and handling their distribution, Paizo is still developing the content within them.

No, just being sarcastically reductive of an entire subtype of outsider. They're anthropomorphic animals from the upper planes. Lulz.

Yay on getting more info, but Nay that we are cramming all of Golarion in one book...

We're keeping the details on each region limited to a gazetteer of a single city for each, so this book doesn't preclude further expansion of any of the areas in question. We didn't need to cram the entire Inner Sea region into Cities of Golarion or Towns of the Inner Sea, and this book will take largely the same format.

The Redemption Engine features the city of Kaer Maga, written by the location's creator and Paizo's fiction editor, James L. Sutter. The first third of the Pathfinder's Journal novella, The Compass Stone (edited and largely written by Sutter), takes place in Varisia, with sections in such locations as Magnimar, Korvosa, Kaer Maga, and the Cinderlands. The novella, Light of a Distant Star, by Bill Ward, takes place in
Riddleport.

A number of web fiction short stories are also set in Varisia, including:

Arcadia needs a clean break from "humans, humans, everywhere". Why not a lizardfolk Empire, a theocracy of sentient tyrannosaurs or any number of other possibilities instead of " oh, look, more humans / [insert PC race here] ".

If there's a time to take a step into an alien culture that isn't dead set on turning everyone into slime-covered meat snacks (aboleths) or slave labor meat snacks (serpentfolk) but has their own distinct culture, Arcadia is the place.

Considering there's the lizardfolk nation of Droon in southern Garund, we are unlikely to also place one in Arcadia. That said, there are a ton of races that don't yet have a corner of the map to call their own, so it's entirely possible another "monstrous" race will get their own civilization in Arcadia as well as other places on the map.

As to whether Arcadia is the best fit for where alien, monster people live, that's a tricky question. One of the goals of the Pathfinder campaign setting is that there be representation for players of all sorts, and that includes many players who identify as native american (of any number of specific heritages). To insinuate, even unintentionally, that people from Arcadia (read "America") are monster people that you won't be able to easily identify with is less than ideal.

So expect something akin to Tian Xia with Arcadia and our other unexplored continents—many humans of varying ethnicities, as well as a smattering of other races, from elves and dwarves and gnomes to new ones, such as nagaji, wayangs, and samsarans were for the Dragon Kingdoms.

Such wording is present in every posting we do, primarily because it needs to be clear from the onset that you must be local to work here; telecommuting is not an option. So while it sounds like it restricts people from other parts of the country/world from applying, it is just a roundabout way of saying that you must be a resident of the Seattle area by the time you start working. We have had a number of folks (myself included) hired from far, far away with the understanding that we would be Seattle residents as soon as possible.

I am working on an entire book in the setting of pathfinder's world of Golarion and would like to know if there is any way it could possibly become an established Pathfinder Tales book if the people of Paizo liked it enough?

I am thinking of adding one of my own created monsters as a substantial part of the story and would they or would they not accept that in a Pathfinder Tales book?

We cannot accept unsolicited novel submissions, and any such material we receive we cannot read to protect ourselves from legal action down the road. So the short answer to your question is, "no, your book cannot be released as official Pathfinder content." Since that's the case, you are free to add whatever items of your own creation to the book that you see fit. You're also encouraged to share your work with the community, such as on the Pathfinder fan fiction website, Pathfinder Chronicler or (for shorter pieces) the Wayfinder fanzine. You can also share them under the terms of our Community Use Policy, which permits the non-commercial use of our intellectual property under certain conditions, as detailed in the policy itself.

Best of luck, and thanks for your interest in adding to the Pathfinder world with your own creative contributions!
