The answer is yes and no.

Or the answer is that it's as much as Golarion's official future as a universe with time travel will allow. Also this is a future with a huge non-linear gap in time lost that happened across the multiverse so the galaxy could be in the matrix, technically in the past, in another dimension or in the dream of a water-soccer player for all we know.

The question doesn't have a definite answer in context so you're never going to get one.

That's okay because this answer satisfies me enough:)

Well then you gotta ask yourself what do you actually want/mean out of it being "canon"? You already know it's going to be a "possible future". That means it will never be stated with absolute certainty to be *the* future of Golarion. It also most likely means that they won't go out of their way in Pathfinder to make it impossible for the setting of Starfinder to come to be. Do you mean will they ever reference the Starfinder events in Pathfinder? Why or how would they, given that it's far, far in the future. So, by asking whether it is canon, what are you actually asking?

I guess I just want a confirmed answer


Samy wrote:

Depends. For what? For Marvel Comics? No. For Pathfinder? Debatable. Is "Days of Future Past" canon for X-Men, because it's a "possible future"? Some would say yes, some no.

For Starfinder? Absolutely. By definition the setting that it lays out in its official core rulebook will be canon.

For pathfinder is what I meant


It says "but far in a possible future" so does that mean the setting won't be canon?


Does anyone know the names of the adventures in iron fang invasion are?


Anyone got the titles of the adventures yet?


Will there be a great old one in each of the bestiaries?

So this is the first adventure path with all human iconics.

Thank you.


In the bestiary opener artwork, does it still show regular iconics, or does it show the evil iconics with one of the new monsters?


What are the rest of the new Monsters?

So, what are the monsters in this one?

Let me see, there's a small fey bug woman (Calpina), an alien dream stealer (Ikelos), a really cool Iron Rhinoceros and a magnetic golem.

EDIT: Oh, and some sort of magma tadpole thing.

Is one of those the herald of Zursvaatar?

Thank you once again you our always reliable;) also I'm glad Lem comes back finally.


Who are the iconics?


In hell's vengeance since you play evil characters does that mean it will show evil versions of the iconics? Or the iconics turning evil toward the end of the ap?


Personally,I prefer just core races as iconics.

Ok, I was just asking because the new product occult bestiary has was said to be variant as well as new monsters. That made me think of the mythic variant versions of monsters mythic adventures has.
The occult variants of other classic monsters do speak to the same sort of ideas as the mythic ones, in that they give you a new variant of that monster that can enhance the way you portray that monster's society and the like. Occult Adventures is in the same line as Mythic Adventures, the "Adventures" line, which gives you the tools you need to run a game with a different feel. However, Malwing is also right that the tools in this one are also meant to work seamlessly in your normal game (as befits the themes of the occult as being the hidden layer beneath the surface, after all), whereas Mythic is a whole new mode that changes the CR balance.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Will occult be like mythic?,using a different system and rules?

Everyone,

The new street date for Paizo November Releases is now Monday, November 24th.

The retail release date of Pathfinder Battles Miniatures: Lost Coast is not affected by this on the retailer level, however due to limitations of technology on our end, they are effectively treated as part of the November Releases on paizo.com (ie they won't come off preorder until Monday even though their release date in stores has passed).

Is that why the pdf's come on the 24th and not tomorrow?

Thanks;)

In the paizo catalog this module's page has artwork of different iconics. Is that artwork from the module?

So what's with the PDF being pushed back another week?:(


Anyone know what the titles of the adventures are yet ?


Shouldn't the cover be updated now?


Isn't the PDF supposed to come out on Wednesday instead of Thursday?

It'll vary.

Cool

How come the next meet the iconics blog hasn't appeared this Thursday and last Thursday ?

We didn't last Thursday because we were trying to get back on schedule to have them all leading up to Gen Con; we jumped the gun by 1 week with Jirelle.

And today's not over yet. Patience! I just read and approved today's post yesterday.

Thanks!:)

Vegepygmies on the cover!

A throwback to the 1980 AD&D adventure Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, which first introduced them to the game!

On another note... will Space Amiri appear in this AP?

Nope; Space Amiri isn't part of this AP.

She won't use her sword for much longer though...

Does that mean the iconics will be shown using space technology?
For Iron Gods? Yes. We're already showing that, in fact; note the weapon the gunslinger's using on the cover of "Fires of Creation."

Nice:)

I don't remember exactly where it moved (I don't have my tracking sheet at home), but I'm pretty sure all Mummy's Mask monsters are accounted for.

Great!!:)

Yep! I almost always aim for five per volume, except for the first volume of an Adventure Path because the campaign outline takes up those pages. During the course of an AP, sometimes other parts of the volume require more space, and since monsters are often modular and take up only two pages, they are the ones sacrificed. I'm almost always able to fit them into a later volume. In the last four APs, I've only ended up with two or three monsters that don't yet have a home in print.

Four monsters per volume is the absolute lowest I'll go. If you ever see fewer than four monsters in a Pathfinder Bestiary, you can be sure that I'm as upset as you are about it. :)

So the one that was supposed to be in this volume will be in the next one or the last one? Just checking:-)


So four monsters not five, did they have to move one up to the next volume like they did before?

I'm guessing... August? :D

I can't remember where but I remember being told that the iconics would be introduced via blogs starting mid-May to June.

Since I can't remember where this was said, but I do remember it being from a reliable source, so the dates are just speculative until confirmed.

however considering that there will be 10 new Iconics, with an assumed one per week released, we should assume that at some point within the next few weeks we should start seeing them. with each week revealing a new iconic until the actual rulebook release.

I meant what are the iconics in this adventure path not the advanced class guide.

He's a deity.

In the previous edition of the game, when we used the 3.5 definitions of deities and demigods, that was different.

Oh ok

So when will the iconics be revealed? :)
