Yeah, I'd wager setting an adventure on Triaxis is far enough "out there" that bumping it forward or backwards fare enough to be summer wouldn't be a stretch at all.

YES. Especially if it's set during the summer! I'd love to see summertime Triaxis in full Michael Whelan/Roger Dean/Yoshitaka Amano-esque glory, with vibrant life both familiar and alien and bonded dragonkin as the norm for heroes rather than the exception.

God, the worldbuilding alone would be worth the price of admission.

I really want this.

God all this movie talk makes me want an animated, super-stylized Final Fantasy IV movie that much more.

Redemption, Eidolons, Moon Wizards, and Albino Glam Paladins* made that one of the most important games of my childhood. :)

That and the bards, monks, white mage/archers, and elemental fiends.

Even when I can objectively see where some other entries did some things better, 4 is still the one that had the greatest impact on me and is closest to my heart. :)

"Don't play the character you want to play" isn't really going to get much traction as a solution to issues some folks have with the system.

That said, I've got really high hopes for Pathfinder Unchained.

I like to think that LG, NG, and CG approaches will all be equally at home and exalted in this campaign. :)

Can't have a proper rebellion without a healthy mix of each, eh? (eyes Galt knowingly)

honestly do not know if I'd rather play through the ball infiltration as a dashing rogue or an honorable paladin trying to traverse that social minefield

Challenge Accepted.

I actually liked the fact that all the LG deities were not squeaky clean. I guess we can just keep ironing out all of the wrinkles until they are all the same...

Nothing bland about that.

Except this isn't making them all the same.

It's making Torag actually Good.

There is nothing bland about that unless one buys into the wrongheaded conceit that the only way things can be interesting or have depth is to grimdark them up.

Is long past burnt out on Good being portrayed as "good in name only" in this genre. Like by twenty or so years.

I'm a bit surprised he hasn't turned up in the discussion, but there is a benign Lawful Good god of Madness in the setting: Tsukiyo, god of the moon, spirits, and jade. He's a bit like a Japanese Osiris in terms of history, what with the importance of his marriage and his death and resurrection. He's also a LG god with the Darkness and Repose domains. Comes across as a darkly romantic figure in his pantheon. Insane, yes, but he's also a functional benevolent god and devoted husband. Big hit with the samsarans.

He's....really neat and totally needs more exposure. :)

I imagine a lot of android characters would take offense to "it".

Just saw this pointed out in another thread and double checked my copy of Inner Sea Gods and, wow, it's true:

Torag's paladin code no longer calls for his followers to scatter families and non-combatants associated with those that take up arms against them.

Whoever made this change: THANK YOU. That goes a long way towards making Torag easier to accept as good-aligned. :)

Now my half-orc PC is going to have to be a bit less resentful of him...

Just now really getting to dig into the ACG.

Came across Celestial Blood rage powers for barbarians. Gonna have to weigh the options between those and the Celestial Totems, though one could take all or some of both.

Then came across Blessed Striker, and then realized it requires the ability to cast divine spells thus making it a no-go for single classed barbarians...

...and then looked over to the previous page to see Believer's Boon.

My God. This is going to happen now.

James, with a half dozen new iconics in the not-so-distant future, any chance you could put a bug in someone's ear for an iconic with a non-hunky/toned body type? I'm a touch overweight myself and it's always bothered me that whenever I brought up the issue of overweight people as adventurers, the answer I almost always get is, "Well, overweight people don't adventure because you need to do a lot of physical activity to be an adventure. An overweight adventurer would either die because he's out of shape or loose the weight fast from the activity." Its a bit of a pet peeve of mine.

If I ever play a full swashbuckler, he's probably going to take a lot of inspiration from Jack Black. :)

Just want to say that having a lot of options and simplifying things that truly are overly complex aren't mutually exclusive.

PF can be more user-friendly and have a wide range of flavorful options. It doesn't have to be one or the other.

Making the game easier to play while requiring less system mastery to make certain basic fantasy character concepts viable would be a good thing.

Of course I'd never expect Paizo to go down that route. But there are some truly dark corners of this hobby... :(
Yes, I certainly understand that there are some truly messed up individuals there. But Paizo would never listen to them. I am 110% convinced that they'd never write a kill-the-Indians! AP. So that's why I don't understand the pleading for them not to do it. It's like pleading Superman not to torture. I don't get it. It makes no sense.

Well, that wasn't so much pleading to Paizo as it was a hopeful reminder to others. :)

But also, Paizo themselves have said that they always want to improve and avoid nasty pitfalls like that. When people speak up about those concerns, it isn't always about accusations but rather asking "please watch out for this".

Another vote for wanting Arcadia and an extra vote for it avoiding putting the Arcadians on the other side of an "us vs them" colonial AP like the plague.

I really want Arcadia.

But I absolutely would not want it like that.

Bonus points if Arcadian PCs get bonuses to punch NPCs that use the word "skraeling" in the mouth.

That's really not an art style that fits with the established style. And iconics are always drawn by Wayne Reynolds anyway.

Objection. Pathfinder uses a wide variety of styles. Case in point: Pathfinder regular Carolina Eade

Besides, we have plenty of core iconics in place already to represent core-centric-ness-ness by this point!

So...we're getting six new iconics in Occult Adventures.

Their races haven't been announced yet.

We still don't have any non-core race iconics.

We still have a need for sexy "bishounen" iconics to balance the fanservice scales.

The iconics featured in Hell's Rebels have not been announced yet.

Hell's Rebels is looking to be a very social-RP heavy AP.

Hell's Rebel's is set in a one of the countries with the highest tiefling populations in Golarion.

Just throwing that out there. :)

Favorite iconic from the Dragon/Dungeon era

I love tieflings

And I love that expression. It reminds me of how I'd rather be when moods turn sour and the temptation to be bitter or caustic arises.

(also I love seeing artwork of tieflings actually being happy)

An "okay I'll behave" answer:

Planet-hopping Distant Worlds AP where you gather alien allies to stand against the Dominion of the Black!

Pure high fantasy, dreamlike, Gaiman-esque First World-centric AP!

Painful, classic-Gundam-esque-in-scope Nirmathas vs. Molthrune AP with no pure good or bad side, with plenty of heroes and villains on both!

Correct. There's not much yet about the Order of the Torrent, but that does indeed have something significant to do with the title, "Turn of the Torrent." It's a play on words as well... in at least 3 ways...
So it's time for the Order of the Torrent's turn to rule. To do so, they must turn against their home city, Kintargo, and turn away from their roles as man hunters and rescuers of the kidnapped to conquerors.

Hmmm...
