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?

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?

One Track Mind

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.

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 :)

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

Until the next typo is caught.


... and the PathfinderWiki has now been updated. Thanks, Mr. Mona!

Goroth Lodge
Ghorus


Slightly off-topic, the only Campaign Setting pronunciation guide I know of is on pp. 246-247 of the old Campaign Setting hardcover book. Of course neither of the words discussed in this thread are in there :P


Just noticed this:

Doctor Archisa Aparna is listed on p. 16 as being Vudrani, but on p. 11 of The Dead Heart of Xin she is Varisian. Judging from her Indian-type name, I'm guessing that the AP got it wrong.

Am busy checking off everything from your list to make sure it's been included in the Wiki. One thing that I have a question about is your entry for "Ghol-Gan". I've only ever seen it referring to the ancient cyclopes civilization, never their language. What is your reference?
You can probably cross that one off as a worry, unless you guys want to include stuff that appears to have been 'updated'. The only instance of Ghol-Gan as a language is from the original Gholdako in Isles of the Shackles (page 49). The latest version, from Bestiary 4, replaces this with Giant.
Either that, or it was changed in Bestiary 4 because it's a "setting-neutral" source. But I think you are right, I think it was a typo, although I'll keep my eyes open for further instances.
In setting it probably should be Cyclops.

Yup! The Inner Sea World Guide is generally my go-to reference in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting. Looks like there's a bit of confusion as to what the proper language of the ancient cyclopes should be.

And just as an FYI, the Kasatha (as of right now) have not been mentioned in a Campaign Setting source, only in the Advanced Race Guide and Bestiary 4.

Excellent set of links :) I make use of all of those for my home games. I'll have to adjust my site to start hot-linking a lot of those languages from the Archives to the Wiki. I already do that for Deities and some Nations (in the Background Generator) but that's about it.

Thanks! Glad to know our work is of use to others. It's a constant work in progress, so if you see something, please feel free to let us know here or on the Wiki.

Great work, Karui Kage!

For descriptions of most of these languages, you can also check out PathfinderWiki's various pages on languages spoken in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting:

Human Languages of Golarion
Nonhuman Languages of Golarion
Dead Languages of Golarion
Darklands Languages
Languages of the Great Beyond


Been a while, but ...

P. 266 of the ISWG states that Citadel Dinyar is located near the "headwaters of the River Iseld", but the Inner Sea Poster Map Folio shows this to be the "River Keld". Hmmm.

Erm, Trickery is a domain, not a subdomain. Do you mean Thievery?


PFWiki has the answer.


Nothing has been revealed as far as we've been able to discover. Although this would not have applied to Azlant and Thassilon (since they would have already gone down the drain), the Imperial Calendar of Imperial Lung Wa in Tian Xia is 2,500 years older than Absalom Reckoning.

Anyone know where I could find or if somebody could post GMG Settlement stats for the cities mentioned in that book? (I know Whitethrone's been done already, in case you guys were wondering.)

The only way the most recent "city statblock" version (using the rules of the Gamemastery Guide) would exist is if the cities had been used since the printing of GMG as the setting of an adventure (such as in a module or in an AP or even just a lowly PFS scenario).

So what's the answer, as far as I know? Nope, except for Whitethrone, which you have already mentioned. Why is that? I'm guessing the cities that were included in "Cities of Golarion" were included because there were no plans on using them in any upcoming adventures, i.e. they were included because Paizo knew that a module or AP would not detail them further in the near future.


Plus there's always the PathfinderWiki!

Just saw something else ...

The same timeline lists Queen Galfrey as taking the throne in Mendev in 4601 AR. Even if she was made queen when she was a baby, this means that she's 113 years old! Given that she's human (at least according to the "Faction Guide") is this a typo or has she been sucking on sun orchid elixir milk shakes for much of her life?

The church has indeed been supplying her with the Sun Orchid Elixir, rather than change leaders in the middle of a long war they keep hoping won't last much longer, they decided to keep her around, basically.

In fact, I'm right now working on her NPC gallery section for the fourth Wrath of the Righteous adventure, which talks a bit about that, and on how it's starting to wear at her psychologically being the leader of a 100 year long war.

Hey, I guessed it!

Just noticed something ...

In the timeline on the rear inside cover it lists that the god Aroden defeated Deskari's avatar at the Lake of Mists and Veils in 4433 AR. If this is correct, this is a big update from what the timeline was in the older books. Originally, according to the "Campaign Setting" p. 148, this happened before Aroden's apotheosis (i.e. before 1 AR). As far as I can tell, this would be Aroden's first documented direct intervention since he defeated Tar-Baphon in 896 AR. As far as I understood, I thought that Aroden withdrew from helping humanity directly after defeating the wizard-king. After all, he didn't personally interfere in the Shining Crusade in the 38th and 39th century AR. Any insight?

Why we never banish/imprision a BBEG like was done to Tar-Baphon ? I allways wonder why PCs never go against someone so powerfull that they have to resort to putting in timeout.

How is was even done ?

Dungeons of Golarion pages 14-23 give you a pretty good idea.


It works quite well, and is pretty straightforward and doesn't take long to get used to. It's almost like having any document detailing Golarion hyperlinked like the PFWiki itself. It's a little bit slower, of course, because you can't just click on a word, you have to highlight it first. Now we just have to add more articles to the wiki ...

I am cross-posting this from the PFWiki, as I think it may be useful to some of you!

OK, this is kinda cool and kinda geeky, so be forewarned. This is unfortunately also for Mac OS users only, as this application doesn't exist for other OS as far as I know. The app I am referring to is called PopClip and can be downloaded from the App Store for US $3 right now. Basically, it allows you to perform extra functions when you highlight something with your mouse. So instead of just copying and pasting, you can search for something, create a note for yourself, send an email, etc.

One of the software's most basic functions is to do a Google search on the selected term. If you go to the app's User Guide, however, it shows you how to use alternate search engines. Take a moment to read how to do that on the page I just mentioned. OK, done? Do you have the app installed? No? Go back and install the app!

Now do a search for "***" in our PFWiki search box on the website, highlight the URL it spits out and select "Select Search Engine" when it the PopClip menu appears (hold down the Shift key to make it the alternate search engine). Bingo! Now every time you do a search using PopClip (or an alternate search, if that's what you selected), you're searching the wiki! How freaking cool is that? This will work in any text document you are reading, including PDFs!

Now if you do a regular search using the app and the term you're looking for is only used in Paizo pubs, there's a good chance that the wiki will be the top Google search result anyway, but this saves you another click.

Let me know if anyone else ends up using this, or if I've gotten something in my instructions wrong.


Nope. No stats or class.


This doesn't explain where they originate (as no map shows this) but:

Soggy River
Foxglove River
