Ah, I see.
So Shamash is one of the elder gods (like Nodens & Bast)...
For a moment I thought that the name was being used for a new lovecraftian horror (Outer god or Great Old One), which was where my disconnect between real-world and literary mythologies occurred.
Thank you for clearing things up - somewhat.
Umm... How is Shamash a Lovecraftian deity?
Note: I haven't looked at the product itself, nor am I trying to discredit/criticise it (haven't read it, so...). It was just unexpected disconnect when I first read which gods were included...
Other than that, keep making great products!
Thought it was something like that.
...Also, since someone talked about it way earlier, Japanese tend to go for dramatic trailers in general when it comes to animation rather than comedy. Not sure why exactly, but I imagine they are going more for heartwarming marketing stuff rather than for laughters. Either way, its not like they in general consider animation more adult from what I understand
Probably because many seem to forget that humor does not always translate well across unrelated languages, let alone different cultures...
Most of my Japanese friends did not find the movie nearly as funny as many westerners have. Doesn't mean that they didn't enjoy the movie - they do think it is cute!
So rather opt for a dramatic trailer than a humorous one if you're hoping to get people who are not native English-speakers &/or not western (particularly American) in outlook to watch the movie.
Sorry to necro an old thread but, would this book be the original to the Darklands Revisited?
This book gives an overview of the geography, adventure sites/hooks, civilisations and such of the Darklands.
The Darklands Revisited book that's just been released is part of the Revisited line, which deals with a selection of 10 monsters/races and then does "ecology-style" chapters on each (complete with a statted example). Of course, new information about specific places or aspects of the Darklands might be mentioned, but only in context of the races/monsters featured.
Hope that helps.
BTW Into the Darklands is a good book!
I found this bestiary (B5) a lot more useful/ inspiring than the previous one (B4), TBH.
I base this on the number of monsters I use (directly or adapted) from each bestiary. And no, mythic rules has nothing to do with it: those monsters with mythic are among the more interesting monsters in Bestiary 4...
What I particularly liked from Bestiary 5 was how the seven demideity-level Manasaputra were mostly variant spellings of the Amesha Spentas of Zoroastrianism! :D
Nicely done! (^_')=b
Have you had a look at Inner Sea Monster Codex? There's a whole chapter on Urdefhan in it...
All 3 of the major lanterns?
Does this mean that Green Lantern=Kyle Rayner will be on the big screen??
That is all.
I can't wait to find who all 15 deities will be.
Well... Unless things change through development, I *think* James Jacobs mentioned that all the deities that each got half a page in Inner Sea Gods (but excluding Razmir) will be covered (13 in all), plus Apsu and Dahak.
Of course, things could change before the release date next year, so...
Looking forward to finding out, anyways!
I think you meant Curchanus.Like the above regardless!
Actually actually, it says: "...caligni dark folk, deep one hybrids, plant-bodied ghorans, and simian orang-pendaks"
The description seems to pluralise all of the entries listed ("folk" is already pluralised), so I wouldn't necessarily get my hopes up that there are multiple deep one hybrids statted up...
There could be! But not based on what was cited as evidence for it in your post... Sorry. :(
We can only hope!
Is this the origin of the alternate "spelling" (i.e. obvious misspelling) of Lolth "used" in Menzoberranzan (Lloth -- because these drow were originally rebels ...or something)?
...So much irony in it all...
Preferred the graphic novels to the actual books anyways.

Carry on! ;p
Hell's Bells, where a party of bards and skalds bring peace to the land with the power of rock.
There's an anime/J-video game/manga that deals with that theme (using rock 'n roll for freedom and justice!).
Bizarre, I know.
Q: Keeping on theme, where in the Inner Sea would you locate something like the La Brea Tar Pits?
I suppose the Lands of the Mammoth Lords could be a possibility... Or, perhaps more specifically, along its shared border with the Worldwound?
Thanking you for your reply.
<Edit>: Considering I kinda answered my own question, I bolded the "you" in my question above. So, your take on the it.

Could also be referring to the American cave lion, perhaps?
Casmaron. Specifically an island (or more?) to the south(?) that is associated with Casmaron (much like Hermea is part of Astivan, which is the continent to the north of the Inner Sea, i.e. the northern half of the Inner Sea Region).
So, of Casmaron, we're getting Iblydos & Vudra.
<edit> ninja'ed by Kalindlara! :P
Q: Will there a table-like appendix (or something of the sort) that collects all the 'most important' (or interesting!) data for each (sub)race, including information like "most prevalent/common in...", "most likely to worship...", "most common languages known (up to 3)", "most common alignment", etc. (and not just 'crunchy' information like racial stat bonuses & such) in this book?
Sort of like what done for Inner Sea Gods? And kinda like that given in Races of Faerûn... Although perhaps in an easier-to-absorb-at-a-glance format? (Again, like Inner Sea Gods.)
Such a table would, at the very least, be a useful summary on the various races, rather than having to read through a paragraph of text that might, for space reasons, not even include 'equal' information for every race, particularly the less common and obscure ones.
And even if such a table couldn't include all relevant information about the different races found in the Inner Sea, it could be a means of presenting relatively detailed information on even obscure races/subraces in a rather succinct manner.
Looking forward to this product regardless.
Yeah, I might've repeated the same points above... It's late where I'm at! :p

Hey!Since it seems you're into titles by Image Comics, have you had a chance to look at Ravine (epic fantasy setting), by Stjepan Sejic?
There are only two graphic novels so far...
Thanks for being so willing to field all sorts of questions!

And here I thought it was the Pathfinder version of the Asperi (from the D&D Monster Manual II)...
Staying on topic: How's Shimmy doing?
And thanks for continuing with this thread for so long!
<edit: The spelling of Shimmy's name - sorry.>

Emphasis mine, i.e. bold & italics added above.
So... Would this perhaps be a hint (spoiler?!) at one of the five "still unknown" monsters to be featured in the up-&-coming Inner Sea Monster Codex, hmm??
Granted, the five monsters mentioned in the product description (strix, gillman, centaur, ogrekin & charau-ka) aren't necessarily confirmed... Or, at least, that seems to be the general feeling from the posts in its product discussion thread.
Of course, it could all be a hypothetical example on your part (& I'm just speculating ;p ), BUT...
:D :D :D
PS: You don't have to confirm or deny it, if it's a lil' too early to say, BUT...
<edit> Added post script & spoiler.
