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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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?
EDIT: I also noted that the description for archcount and count are the same. Was this intentional?
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.
P. 38 of Occult Realms implies that Gensmaren was founded as a supply fort of Taldor's Second Army of Exploration. This seems to contradict Seekers of Secrets, p. 14, which states that it was the Third Army that did this. Is this an Occult Realms "oops"?
God, I feel as if I just emerged from my nerd chrysalis as a fully-formed and terrifying chicken-decapitating geek.
PDK, most of the Wrath of the Righteous AP takes place outside of Mendev, so it doesn't have much. The first adventures takes place there, however, so:
Pathfinder #73: An 8-page gazetteer on Kenabres as it exists before the events of the AP.
You can also look toward the Wiki for more info:Category:Adventures in Mendev
EDIT: Oh, and a good deal of the "Worldwound Gambit" takes place in Mendev.
Something similar to what happens in "Red Hand of Doom" actually happened in Golarion's recent past, specifically in the nation of Isger. The conflict was known as the Goblinblood Wars, and also involved the neighboring nations of Cheliax, Druma, and Andoran.
If you wanted to stick with Golarion canon, you could set the adventure during this period, or you could simply use the events of the war and its after-effects as inspiration for your own game.
Other than the "Inner Sea World Guide" there is not a whole lot out there. Alkenstar and the Mana Wastes have not yet been the subject of a Campaign Setting product. You can check out the PathfinderWiki on the subject, which includes links to lots of other related articles. As far as I know, "Wardens of the Reborn Forge" is the only adventure that has been set there.
wikkawak are a goblinoid race of winter bugbears, they are racialy classified as CE, so i think racial alignments trump class alignment, Granted this doesnt hold up in all sources, as the goblin druid gogmurt in Rise of the runelords pg 43 is listed as NE.
Race never trumps class (AFAIK) in terms of qualifying for a class. The only way you could have a CE character playing a druid would be to create a druid archetype that specifically allows you to play a non-neutrally-aligned druid. This is most likely a typo.

I'm a huge fan of the Pathfinder Wiki: I use whenever I'm making a new character and whenever I'm prepping a scenario. Thanks for all the work!
On a side note, it's very useful for us to know how you use Pathfinder Wiki, and also what parts of it could use expanding. We regularly monitor the "Campaign Setting" threads for this kind of information, but you could also just tell us, either here or in the Reference Desk on our website.
