Who is the artist?


"Pharaoh" is misspelled in the product blurb.

Wow. That's awesome. Thank you!

No problem. Let me know if there are other things that you think might be useful to add to the wiki.

Now finished adding VCs back through Season 1.

The article for the Lumber Consortium seems to be lacking a lot of information from both "Guide to Darkmoon Vale" and "Andoran: Birthplace of Freedom"

We're a small group doing a lot of work, so there are bound to be holes in articles. Feel free to join us and help fill in those gaps. Every little edit counts!

I use the Wiki for game prep all the time, so I can set up whatever nation we're starting in. It's a great resource, thanks for doing it! And I will try to contribute more often.

Thanks, any help is appreciated, even if it's just correcting a single misplaced comma.

VCs now added to years list back through Year of the Demon.

Things that would be really helpful:

  • A list of which VC is tied to which scenario.
  • A list of which location(s) is(are) represented in which scenario.
  • A list of which scenarios are tied together story wise.
  • A list of which scenarios are tied to what seasons meta story arc.
  • A list of which scenarios are tied to which AP.

Any other lists you or others could think of that would help a GM tie together a comprehensive storyline for players and characters. So making sure all scenario references in these lists also shows the Tier.

A lot of this information is already included in the tables we create for the various "Year of the ..." pages. Each of the PFS seasons has its own page with a sortable table. Season 0 and Season 1 are called by the numbers (since the "Year of the ..." designation did not start until Year of the Shadow Lodge), but the rest you can search for by their proper names.
I had not seen these charts previously. They do half of what i asked for above. But adding another column and listing who the VC is for that scenario would be excellent.

So something like this, Andrew: Year of the Stolen Storm?

I didn't think that the portents peril listing was very spoilery at all, since most of what it had was just the scenario blurb.

That being said, is there a way to make things in a block that can be hidden?

Yes, although it would involve installing a new script, and our tech-focused admin is currently away. We also try to focus on solutions that involve the least amount of work, as there aren't enough editors on the wiki to make big changes. Just take a look at the "Year of the ... " articles for PFS as an example. Those haven't been fully updated since Year of the Demon. That means we're at least 2 years behind, so simple solutions are the best.

The problem with your discreet method is that it doesn't work so well for a casual browser that's unfamiliar with your layout. If you hadn't mentioned it here, I wouldn't have known that there was a spoiler option at all.

Good point.

Lau Bannenberg wrote:
I'm a bit skeptical about your "spoiler warning" emblem. It's hidden in the corner, and if you don't know what it is, it's just a random exclamation mark.

As I mentioned above, you can always enable a more obvious spoiler warning. The reason it is rather unobtrusive now, is that a number of PFWiki editors back in the day felt that the first version (which was closer to what it looks like with the "gadget" enabled) dominated the page too much.

Something I've been considering adding to the wiki (that might work better in a Google Doc or other separate resource) is collecting roleplaying information for the Venture Captains and other reoccuring PFS NPCs.

The wiki is certainly the right place for NPCs' history, but I'm not sure if "this is how Ambrus Valsin talks, his personality, and some quotes to get you up to speed if you haven't run him before" fits into the wiki's mission.

It's a great idea, but you are right, it doesn't quite fit into PathfinderWiki if it's written from the perspective of helping GMs roleplay those characters. On the other hand, a short paragraph on an NPC's personality from the perspective of someone "in-world" would certainly work, e.g. so-and-so "tends to act in an overbearing manner, often cutting off people before they have finished a sentence." This would have to be information directly from a scenario, however, and not something that a GM has made up.

Since Portent's Peril is a very recent scenario that people might want to not have spoiled, I gave The Dalsine Affair the same treatment.

I've stopped using the wiki for the most part. It's a great site, but it also keeps spoiling me constantly.

Examples:

Two clicks to take you from Hold of Belkzen article to an AP boss reveal.

Sorry to hear that. Out of curiosity, what two clicks were they?

We've been back and forth on spoiler tags for a long time. You can pretty much assume that any product page (i.e. an article about a product, such as a scenario) will have some kinds of spoilers. We already mark non-product page articles that contain spoilers with the "spoiler" badge, which you can find in the top right of the page (it looks like an exclamation mark, e.g. Sandpoint).

If that is too subtle for you, once you create an account at Pathfinderwiki (which you all already have, right?), click on "Preferences" in the top right of your screen, then click on the "Gadgets" tab, then select "Toggles a more visible spoiler warning box on pages with the spoiled badge."

This may be giving away something I shouldn't, but there are actually very few regular editors on the wiki (we're not the popular kids). If you see a page that you think should have a spoiler badge but doesn't, it's not because we don't care (we do care), it's because nobody has noticed it. The easiest thing is to drop us a line on the "Discussion" page for that article (you'll find it on the top left of the page), or if you want to just jump in and do a little editing yourself (it'll make you feel good!), simply click on the "Edit" link and insert the following code all the way at the top of the article:

{{Badges|spoiled=[[Name of publication that is spoiled by this page]]}}

See, wasn't that easy?

Hi folks,

I've recently realized that PathfinderWiki can serve the Pathfinder Society community better (both GMs and players). The wiki focuses mainly on campaign setting material, but still could be quite useful to Pathfinder Society GMs.

I've started updating a few of the product pages for a number of scenarios with information about recurring characters and locations, and where further information on these subjects can be found. Take a look at Portent's Peril. Would this be useful information to create for ALL scenarios? Is there other information that would be useful? Remember that the wiki does not include lots of crunch, so we can't be of much use in that department (besides very basic information such as levels, classes, etc).

If you look at the bottom of the Portent's Peril page, you'll see that the categories already break down scenarios by tier and location (both cities and nations).

Any feedback would be appreciated.


Speaking of PFS, I'm toying with a bit of a new format and am looking for feedback.

Take a look at the writeup for the Season 8 scenario Captives of Toil, specifically the "Recurring characters & locations" entry. Is this something useful for GMs prepping the scenario?

Would it be possible to add the Metaplot and ongoing plots overview for Season 6 and SEason 7 of the PFS campaign.

Would it also be possible to update the Season 8 with a brief description of the year and the current scenarios?

Thanks! I've been working on updating all the PFS material. You'll have to give us a little time, though, there's a lot of it!

Also thanks for kudos, Tacticslion.


Ah, I see now that seems to be an old mistake. While the image above still says "in", the actual document says "of".


Erm, seems that the title is Captives IN Toil, not Captives OF Toil


Also ...

Infernal Dukes
Demon lords

P. 15 lists Carpenden as a "small city". With a population of 10,600, it should actually be classified as a "large city".

In this day and age, it's a small city. Back during the Middle Ages/Renaissance, that's a large city, yep. :)

I'd think a "small city" would be more of a population of 5,300 or even 1,060?

LB

For better or worse, the population size categories for settlements are listed on p. 203 of the GameMastery Guide, FYI. They provide a standard for all of Paizo's publications.


"Occarin": The page reference for "further details" should be 46.


There's a pretty comprehensive article on the Printing Press on PathfinderWiki, FYI. As far as we've been able to research, no definitive date has been chosen for the invention of the printing press.

Article on Old-Mage Jatembe is now complete.

One thing that I always wanted to see was a reference to maps in the wiki outside of having to guess if any of the cited references has an actual map of the place the article is about. For Osirion, as an example, on its wiki article it would be handy to list the different mapped overland regions, such as the big map in legacy of the pharoahs, or the three or four regional maps in Mummys Mask. Knowing that the southwestern and West central parts of Osirion are mapped in books 3 4 and 5 of Mummys Mask is a very useful bit of info that pfwiki could add to help players and gms alike.

That's a really good suggestion, archmagi1, thank you.

Article on Melek Taus has been fully updated. Like with the Peacock Spirit, very little is known of the vanished empyreal lord.

Peacock Spirit article now contains all known canon information on the subject. It's still pretty sketchy, but then again, it was a mysterious religion.

Thanks! We'll get right on those.

Over at PathfinderWiki, we are always looking for new subjects to write about, but we can sometimes be at a loss for which ones to tackle. Here's where you can help us out!

Do you have a campaign setting question you want answered? Ask it here, and we'll do the research and post the results on the wiki (with links here).

Think a subject is not sufficiently covered on the wiki? Bring it up here and we'll make sure to expand on it.

Help the Pathfinderwiki to grow and stay relevant; post your questions here!


If you do a search for ERK on the messageboards, you'll find that there seem to have once been plans to have Robert Kuntz publish his materials on the place for Pathfinder. That seems to have never happened, although it was kept in the most current campaign setting base book, the Inner Sea World Guide.


Who are the artists on the three character portraits you posted? I'd love to credit them correctly on the wiki. Thanks!


If you can't remember an Absalom Reckoning date, you can always check out the PathfinderWiki timeline. It's got loooots of entries, one of the biggest being 4606 AR.


Check out the article on the Shory from The Slave Trenches of Hakotep.


FYI, a number of the links posted by the OP go to our old website: pathfinder.wikia. It sadly still exists, but people have not updated it regularly for more than six years. Our much newer site is at PathfinderWiki.com. You should check it out!


Guide to Absalom, p. 6 has what look to be the front and back of the copper penny.


P. 15 lists Carpenden as a "small city". With a population of 10,600, it should actually be classified as a "large city".


P. 12 lists Alvis as a small fishing village. According to the map on the inside front cover (as well as the map on p. 44 of the ISWG), Alvis is located more than 25 miles from the coastline. That would be a heck of a commute for the fishermen. Sadly, much of the description of the town relies on it being on the coast.


Slight typo: Alysande Benedict's name seems to be misspelled on p. 9 as Aylsand Benedict.


You'll be able to add Scourge of the Godclaw to this list this summer.

My second PC from the area is a half-elf. How are they viewed in Kyonin, and the nearby sections of the River Kingdoms? Do the elves of Kyonin accept them?How would most Kyonin elves view those who date other races? If she started dating an elf from Kyonin as a young adult, would his family and friends mostly reject her for not being a pure elf?

Elves reaction to half-elves is complicated, and there are a wide variety or responses. Most elves look to half-elves with pity considering their considerably shorter life-spans. Most half-elves in Kyonin live in the town of Erages, and are not welcome in the rest of the kingdom. A Kyonin elf who dated a half-elf would not be that unusual, but would probably not be interested in anything permanent or serious, as the elf would outlive his or her spouse (and any resulting children) by centuries. Followers of Callistria would have an easier time with this, however.

Fromper wrote:
Also for that second character, given Kyonin's isolationist nature, how much interaction does it have with neighboring countries? I'm leaning towards saying my character grew up in the River Kingdoms, though her elven parent was from nearby Kyonin. Would the elves engage in trade with the River Kingdoms? I need a good excuse for how her parents met, as well as for her own interactions with Kyonin elves prior to becoming an adventurer. Meeting through merchant trading along the rivers would be the easy answer, if Kyonin isn't too isolationist to trade with its neighbors that way.

Kyonin is very isolationist, but there is some trade through Greengold. There is, however, an elven colony in the River Kingdoms called Hymbria, so that could be a very plausible place to have grown up.

All of this info can be found in PathfinderWiki.com


Quick question:

Page 3 of the book mentions House Carthagnian as being in charge in Longmarch, ruling from the city of Corentyn. That noble house isn't mentioned anywhere else in canon, although House Charthagnion is mentioned elsewhere numerous times (including in Cheliax, the Infernal Empire).

Is this a typo?


Question on the title of "Prince/Princess" as listed on p. 3 of the book: does the title apply only to the descendants of the current majestor/majestrix, or the direct descendants of any previous majestors/majestrixes as well?

Thanks!

EDIT: I also noted that the description for archcount and count are the same. Was this intentional?


Also on p. 87, it states that the Vudrani returned to Jalmeray in 2822 AR, "more than a millennium after the departure of Maharajah Khiben-Sald". If he arrived in 563 AR, that's technically more than a millennium, but more accurately it's more than two millennia.


Hmm, a year-and-a-half since the last post. Either we've found all the hiccups or no one is reading this book anymore ;)

P. 86 states that the archmage Nex disappeared "a few centuries" after the departure of the Maharajah Khiben-Sald from Jalmeray. This contradicts what is printed on p. 35, which states that in 563 AR, Khiben-Sald spends a decade on the island, and in 576 AR he disappears.

What?!? Seekers of Secrets contains errors? Never have I heard such a crazy thought!

EDIT: Thanks for the clarification, Amanda.
