So long, Andrew. You better not be a stranger!

I had no hand in getting the errata and FAQs out (that was all the design team), but I certainly have my hand in this box of amazing baked goods! The Butterfinger brownies are divine. I suspect they're actually made with Razmir's tears.

Thanks, folks!

I like the fear eater, it's like an evil version of the caterpillar from Alice In Wonderland.

The fear eater was originally called the dread glutton and was picked up from RPG Superstar 2015. When brainstorming the book, we felt it was a great fit, and were happy to provide yet another avenue for Superstar contestants to see their work in print!

This was a great read, Ron, and makes me want to check out your other custom adventures (when they unshackle me from the word mines, that is).

Congrats, CS team, and thanks for all you do!

Please share tasty lunch desserts with me!

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.

The smaller a map, the harder it is to pack it full of tags, as they quickly clutter it and make it really hard to read. So if you're looking for the most comprehensive map to date, that's the Inner Sea Poster Map Folio. The next comprehensive map after that is the one that comes in the Inner Sea World Guide.

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.

At that point, we might as well make it a real book, in which case you could pay less than that for the same thing!

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.

I had to miss last year due to a wedding, but I'm coming this year. So, if I'm hearing correctly, to even get in the booth area to look at merchandise, you have to stand in line that winds outside the exhibit room?

In '12 and '13, I remember big lines for the cash register but you could still look at stuff.

The issue we've continually run into is that once people have looked at stuff, they grab that stuff and get in the line to pay, and then that line stretches beyond the edges of the booth. By limiting the number of people in the booth at any given time, we can ensure that the line to pay never obstructs the walkway or becomes more than we can manage. So rather than waiting in line to pay with merchandise in hand, customers now spend that time in line outside the booth, allowing them to more quickly pay once they've had the time (as much as they need) to peruse the booth.

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.

Furthermore, knowing that we'd be doing two APs worth of content in Cheliax, we specifically chose locations on Golarion other than Cheliax for this book, since it's not the only place where devils and devil worshipers appear in the Inner Sea. That said, in all but a few cases, a GM could quickly and easily adapt the encounters within to take place anywhere, as they're designed to be self-supporting and modular.

Paizo Employee Developer

While not directly answered, a lot of the questions you're asking are at least addressed in the most recent Pathfinder Tales novel, Lord of Runes.

We did a map like that waaaaay back in the 3.5 Campaign Setting hardcover, but that's now 7 years out of date. The Advenure Finder allows you to find adventures by region, so you could fairly easily make your own map using the generic Inner Sea map found in the Community Use Package and a bit of time searching the site. It shouldn't provide you too many spoilers (no more than you'd get from looking at the back cover of any of the books to see whether it was something you'd want to read/run/play. When you're done with the map, it's also something that could be shared with the community under the Community Use Policy, letting future players benefit from your efforts.

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.

No comic. :(

According to comiclist, the most recent expected release date for Pathfinder Origins #5 was June 17, and that was last updated on May 31. Whether it remains a 6/17 release or not is up to Dynamite, but even if it releases on time, it missed this month's shipping window by at least a week.

Golarion exists in the same universe as Earth and you questioned if it was in the same universe as Carcosa? Silly mortals.

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!

Not really, no. Maybe a few little bits in passing, but it was never the topic of discussion, at least in panels I was on.

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.

I know that they can be relatively easily modified, but the collector in me won't allow me to do so. Any I have a lot of duplicates of I might try, but none of the rares.

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.

This thread is so much fun to read. I don't get to participate in this sort of wild speculation anymore, so thanks for letting me live vicariously through all of you. You still have 2 days to keep at it until we announce the next AP at the banquet, so keep it up!

Yeah, this isn't so different from Netflix. You pay for a bunch of stuff you don't watch to get to see the stuff you do. And if you decide you do want to watch the stuff you don't watch, you already have it at your fingertips.
