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?


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.

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 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.

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

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?


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.

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.

D'oh! Never mind, I just noticed the Phantom. It's Estra.

Who is that on the cover image with Meligaster? Is that Erasmus?

The Pathfinder Wiki article on Naderi has been updated to include all known canon info.

The new PFS scenario #7-05 School of Spirits is also set in the Precipice Quarter.

Nope, there is no 0 AR in Golarion.

Sometime between when he defeated Tar-Baphon and the Shining Crusade. I believe that's as specific as the canon has gotten.

Morgethai is a well-known elven family that founded the Kyonin city of Riverspire.

What? I can't say Van D+#%? It's a Type of Beard.

Hmm, since it's actually named after a guy, maybe I have to refer to it as a Van Dijk on the Paizo boards from now on.

Is it just me, or does the picture of Venture-captain Brackett on p. 9 look a lot like John Compton with a Van D@$&?

So after I deep search of Golarion deities, I found this one.

Is there any more info about Kelinahat outside Chronicle of the Righteous? Perhaps a paladin/rogue prestige class to go with? ;-)

Nope, THIS is all there is, afaik.

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.

However that wiki does a pretty good job.

"Pretty good"? I worked really hard on that article! ;)

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.

The timeline on p. 5 states that House Thrune finally came to power and ended the Chelish civil war in 4660 AR. This directly contradicts both the Inner Sea World Guide (p. 37) and Cheliax, Empire of Devils (p. 4). I'm guessing this is a typo, yes?

There is no errata document for the book, and there never will be as it has been superseded by books like the The Pathfinder Society Primer. If you have specific questions, I'd do a search for the term in the Campaign Setting Forums or on PathfinderWiki.

Speaking of which, do developers have an alignment restriction? I know most are Chaotic Overworked, but I was wondering if that's a class requirement.

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 double-checked, and the only books to mention Feronia (that I've been able to find) are KQ23, Inner Sea Gods, and Princes of Darkness. KQ23 has the most info on her, but there is little substantive beyond what is written in the wiki article.

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!

You're welcome.

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.

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.
