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.

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.
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.
We did a map like that waaaaay back in the 3.5 Campaign Setting hardcover, but that's now 7 years out of date.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.
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.
Aww, I don't see the Iconic Kineticist..... And he looked so awesome!
I want a stuffed pugwampi. :'(
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
So will this one say what part of Golarion each monster is found like the Inner Sea Bestiary did?
If there's room for such information, yes. But some of these monsters aren't specific to a region. Rather, they can exist anywhere, but their existence is generally occluded from public knowledge, hence their inclusion in the "occult" bestiary. Some are definitely from one place in particular, but most can fit in occult campaigns set in a variety of places.
*Sigh* No PDF format anymore... I guess I'm out. Being blind is a real drag sometimes. Hopefully it will come out in audio, although I'm certainly not counting on it.
Hey Valantrix! Sutter is out today, but I'll point him at this thread when he's back in the office and maybe he can shed more light on the topic. In the meantime, I did a web search to see if Tor had any plans for an audio recording of this book, and they did solicit an audiobook version of it along with the print and digital formats, so it looks like there will be one. Their site doesn't mention a time frame for release, nor if other titles will have similar treatment, but it does look like this book, at least, will be released as an audiobook. Again, Sutter can likely provide more information when he gets back in the office.
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
A number of web fiction short stories are also set in Varisia, including:
Looks like you've got quite the reading list
Yes, if you know you won't be able to legally gain credit for something you've already played, please vote for other scenarios. If we end up with a player being unable to play the scenario we finally land on, I'll deal with that at the time, but I'm pretty sure we won't run into it.
Once event trading ends (or before if you aren't trying to trade this event away because why would you do that), please list your three top preferences from the following list. I want to determine what scenario we'll be playing as soon as possible to ensure I have the necessary time to update it.

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.
Have we ever indicated anywhere that there wouldn't be a book on Arcadia?
