I would start at the Pathfinder Wiki.

There's even a category for famous arenas.

Hey, and PFWiki includes all of the ones mentioned above! Way to bat a hundred :)


Ugmitok, the wikkawak druid on p. 50 is listed as chaotic evil. She's a druid.

What I'd love to see is some kind of Pathfinder index, where you can look up a term and find out what books its in and what page you can find it on.

That's basically PathfinderWiki. The reason that we haven't been able to do this for every book that Paizo has published is tri-fold: 1) Paizo publishes A LOT of material, 2) Because of the Community Use Policy we can't copy text verbatim (nor would we want to), and 3) on any given month there are roughly only a dozen active users (defined has having made at least one edit), and of those only four have made over 100 edits.

So what is the solution? Come join the editing team of PathfinderWiki! Every addition helps!


The most complete information (including lots of stuff that can't be found in any other source) comes from "Guide to Darkmoon Vale". That's your go-to resource. Every other book just has a mention here and there. PathfinderWiki may be helpful for some additional info.


This may be of some use (it's from our PathfinderWiki): Adventures in Darkmoon Vale.

p. 37
Regnat the Green of the Storm-Screamers of Rull seems to be missing his class level.


I'll second what karlprosek said.

Nothing has been detailed in canon, although books have mentioned that Ninshabur and Kaskkari lie along the western and southwestern edges of the Castrovin Sea.


There are two mentions of tiefling ghettos in "Blood of Fiends" (p. 8), but both are located outside in Cheliax (in Absalom and Jalmeray). No book that I know of has specific mention of a tiefling ghetto anywhere in Cheliax, but it would certainly be plausible, given how they are treated there.

In "The Infernal Syndrome" (p. 36), the fourth book of "Council of Thieves", there is a room called the "Tiefling Ghetto" that is part of the Nessian Spiral underneath the manor of the mayor of Westcrown, but that is just a room and not a neighborhood in the city. Maybe that's what you were remembering blackbloodtroll.


Gromnar, as far as I know they have not been detailed anywhere.


There's also the orcs of the Wingripper tribe of the city of Wyvernsting. They ride and train wyverns, which are sort of like dragons.


Very minor, P.328 again.

In Yog-Sothoth's entry the Darkness and Chaos domain are in reverse alphabetical order.


Again P. 328

Verex has Chaos as both a domain and a subdomain. He must really like chaos!


I suggest you read the PathfinderWiki Article on the subject. It's the best compilation of information on the subject. I should know, I wrote most of it myself.


What is written on p. 5 of "Seekers of Secrets" is all that is known of that oath, as far as I know.


Just caught another:

P. 328

The orc god of slavery, Lanishra, is listed as having the Leadership domain. Leadership is a subdomain. The other domains/subdomains seem to be in order.

While on the topic, anyone have the link to the list of which deities encompass which sub domains. I found it once and have since not been able to. The best I found was one for minor deities and emoyreal lords (useful but I need core deities sub domain access).
Here you go: Which Deities emcompass which subdomains.

Note that I won't be done with adding all the new subdomains from Inner Sea Gods for a few days. I'm most of the way through, however.


I think it would depend on which AP you were playing. If you are playing Reign of Winter, I would suggest Desna, as most of the native clerics who oppose the witches in Irrisen are Desnan. For Iron Gods, I'm not sure. As Voltron64 suggested, Iomedae is a good bet, as she probably the most militant anti-evil goddess.

p. 313

The sarcovalts are described in the text as being "horse-sized" and "enormous", but are listed in the stat block as "Tiny". Which is it?

They're Tiny. I don't know why the read-aloud text says "horse-sized" (perhaps I meant "housecat-sized").

The word "enormous" in the main description means "enormous as compared to a normal housefly." Because it's Tiny.

Thanks for clearing this up, Sean, despite no longer being on the company dole. I love the idea of the divine servitors.


P. 298

The Arcanotheign seems to be missing his "extraplanar" subtype. It is, after all, a native of the Maelstrom, and that's pretty extraplanar.

I would also add the Pathfinder Wiki to your list. Although it can obviously not be as good as having each of these individual publications, it helps track down sources on a subject that you might be unfamiliar with, or fill in some gaps if you are missing a few of them.


p. 322
The empyreal lord Damerrich's name seems to be misspelled. It should have one em and two ars.


p. 286

The Grim White Stag is missing the "herald" subtype.

I want to begin a campaign for evil characters in Geb, but they are living creatures. How is it to live like a living creature in Geb? Can they or not?

Thanks!

And FYI, Osirion is the country. OsiriAn is a thing or person from Osirion.

According to "Racing to Ruin" p. 68 (and also mentioned on p. 11 of "Faiths of Balance", and p. 18 of "Gods & Magic" for those with this older book), Gozreh's priests have a high rate of celibacy, as they wholly devote themselves to their master/mistress.


FYI, the Orcus article on PFWiki is complete as of today.


The only canon mention of the Leaden Cathedral is on p. 67 of "The Infernal Syndrome"; a specific location is not listed.


Off the top of my head, the Darklight Sisterhood and the timing of when the first gunpowder weapons were invented. The Darklight Sisterhood was excised completely. In the Campaign Setting the Gunworks (the main manufacturer of firearms) was founded in 1903 AR, but in the ISWG this was moved up to 4620 AR.

I'm sure there are many other things, but I can't think of them right now.


Perhaps the White Grotto?

Or maybe The Harbingers of Fate?

Nawtvit, thou linkest to the site that shall not be named (and isn't updated substantively anymore).

In the future, thou wouldst find the truest truth at PathfinderWiki.com


Was just looking at Heart of the Jungle today when I realized that the information on p. 28 about "Regions Farther South" mentions that the Kaliasso Jungle is south of Sargava and borders the sea to the west. Looking at the more recent Inner Sea Poster Map Folio, I see that this now seems to be called the Jungle of Hungry Trees. Are they one and the same?


Don't forget Green Blood on a Black Rock in the Shackles.


Guess what PathfinderWiki articles got edited while watching the game?

I call it being a PathfinderWiki editor :)


Found something very minor:

The sorting in the "other languages" section on p. 251 is slightly off. "Gnoll" is sorted in the wrong place.


It is never mentioned if Queen Domina Arabasti had a husband, although she did move from Cheliax to Korvosa with her son as an adult, so she was probably already a widow then.


Fourteen noble families are noted in the wiki, and believe me, that's all that have been mentioned so far in canon literature. If you need more, why not just make up a few?


The books you've already mentioned are really the only sources on your topics of interest. Other books make passing references to them, but add nothing substantive. As for future adventures set in Katapesh, who knows? I have heard nothing on the grape vine, but then again I am not as close to that vine as others.


Quandary wrote:
What is the relationship between Ouat and Pahmet? Are Ouat basically a subset of Pahmet, or what?

The Ouat are an order of monks dedicated to Irori and Nethys. Their members are predominantly Pahmet dwarves, but include other races as well. Pahmet is the name of northern Garund's dwarven culture.

I'll work more on those PFWiki articles soon :)


Albus wrote:
Anything about the countdown clocks or the dominion of the black in the book?

Yes, there is brief mention of them in relation to the Slave Trenches of Hakotep.

The one that immediately jumped to mind is not a full god, but an empyreal lord: Vildeis, also known as the Cardinal Martyr.


There were a number of small easter eggs like the one you found that were included in the Campaign Setting and the other early books. Most were edited out in subsequent books (such as the Inner Sea World Guide) once they were discovered. One that comes to mind is the Slohr.


Sounds like a useful trick, Joe.


I'm still using this and it's still very useful when doing research. Has anyone else joined me on this bandwagon?


Lycanthropes have been greatly expanded upon in Golarion canon recently with the publication of "Blood of the Moon".

Here's the article I wrote on the PathfinderWiki on lycanthropes (needs a bit more updating): LYCANTHROPE
