Just a little correction ^ from someone who is currently living in the Southern Hemisphere.
Otherwise some interesting points you've brought up! ^^
Thank you for the reply!(^_')=b
Re_describing the faiths: Would that include the alignment & areas of concern (at the very least) of the different deities mentioned?
Please & thank you.
Would I be out of line in asking whether the book goes into any detail (beyond just name & epithet - & possibly alignment) about any new gods or faiths worshipped in Kelesh?
Any extra information (symbol, areas of concern, etc.) beyond a "Yes, there are!"/"Unfortunately, no..." is left completely to one's discretion.
Please and thank you!
PS: Regardless of whether or not there are new gods in it, I'm quite excited to get this book! ^^
Thursday the 24th of November is Thanksgiving in the States. As it is close to the weekend, it is possible that the Friday may be included as part of a long weekend, which is what I think Plausible Pseudonym was getting at.
However, I don't live in the States, so I'm not 100% on Friday being a no-work day (although I do know that the international schools are taking the day off...)
I'm sure we'll know for sure next week.
You pretty much got all of it. And mostly right!
Edit: It was Midnight who slew Myrkul, while Bane was killed by Torm (who sacrificed himself to do so). Cyric (who did kill Bhaal) acquired their (Bane & Myrkul) portfolios mostly because he happened to be at the right place & right time (i.e. the Celestial Stair - or something) when Ao was assessing the fallout of the 'Godswar'(=Avatar Crisis).
Cyric did go on to murder Leira, goddess of illusions & deception (with Mask's assist).
Otherwise good summary of the whole story arc.
Weeell... IIRC A member of staff at Paizo (I think it was Ms Price) has said that the moisture levels in China (where the books are printed) has been rather high recently, resulting in a much longer drying time (for the ink) than anticipated, thus implying (but not necessarily saying) that that may be the cause for all the delays.
Not saying that there couldn't be other reasons as well. Just that, unless given the actual reasons for all the delays (unlikely), let's not place blame (directly or not) where it isn't warranted. It will just lead to more unnecessary unpleasantness.
Disclaimer: This isn't directed at just you specifically. It is meant as a general thing.
But of course, this being the Internet, people will post regardless...
Aren't there at least five?
Don't have my books but, there's the Jabberwocky, Jubjub Bird, Bandersnatch, that weird tree thing and the magenta-scaled, fire-breathing bear with a serpent for a tail thing.
Or maybe I've got that wrong...
Kalindlara - HELP!
<edit> There have been five statted out in the bestiaries, as mentioned above. The tree-thing is the Sard & the bear-thing is the Thrasfyr!
<edit-edit>Ninja'ed (below, while I was editing my post)!
Did you perhaps mean Pharasma?
I like dinosaurs!Probably why I've never ever needed Facebook!
Perhaps in relation to the movie Prometheus of the Alien franchise, as well as the usage of 'promethean' for the 'alien engineers'?Not actually what the word means, but it does seem to have acquired those associations among younger generations...
And I could be wrong!
Thought you might be lonely in this thread, so... ;)
I've seen a few episodes & have enjoyed them. However, when they are screened is rather irregular (at best) where I'm currently living.
A pity, really. The show seems fun!
I think I might prefer to watch them in their original language (French) - not that the English voice acting is bad. I just feel that there are some... nuances that have been lost in translation.

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!
