So I successfully managed to integrate 2 of the IP D&D monsters into pathfinder namely Mindflayers and Beholders. I made beholders alien aberrations that get seeded on to planets by meteorite. Basically Great mother is a rogue planet with rings of around her full of seeded meteorites that periodically get hurled toward planets to create hives of beholders. As for mindflayers they are an alien race that are now beholden to the great old ones and spread throughout the galaxy to further their goals. Many powerful mindflayers work for the dominion of the Black in my golarion version. What do you think James?

Is there any way you guys can relocate Paizo publishing somewhere more central? I only ask cause according to seismologists. You guys are due for a huge 8.0-9.2 scale earthquake really soon. As on average one strikes that area once every 243 years and you are already overdue. :(

I HATE card games. Hate them all and have developed a phobia of any TCG.

One of the great things about Seattle as well. King County is super liberal and accepting. It was great to escape Oklahoma. I still miss it sometimes but it's pretty regressive there. Safety was a large part of why I left.
stuff like that pisses me off to no end. I can see someone being bigoted or just intolerant. But to take it so far as to physically attack someone is beyond belief.

Yup it's like that in certain areas of the world. I haven't been home in a decade, it isn't super safe back home, and my family when never be happy with me.

A few drive-by answers.

1) Still no precise word on Iconic Heroes Sets 4-6. They are in the works, and I will let you guys know more on release schedule as soon as I know more myself. We've approved all of the sculpts at this point, and they're fantastic.

2) No plans for a taiga giant at present. I honestly hadn't really considered it. What do other people think?

3) Not sure why dungeon dressing isn't up on the site. I'll check on Monday.

4) Shardra will appear in an upcoming Iconic Heroes set.

5) No real "special inclusions" based solely on my taste in this set, though I did come up with the idea and worked to make sure that the chest and the mimic looked pretty much exactly the same.

Yeah Taiga giants are important for a few reasons

1) They appear in a few adventure paths and modules.
2) They were an early Pathfinder monster creation. First appearing in adventure path #4
3) They are a huge giant that looks really cool.
4) With the frequent use they have really become a staple encounter.


Hey Erik when will we ever see a taiga giant?


1) the promo miniature is not on the order for some reason.
2) there used to be an option on my account to make sure 1 promo ships with every case but I can no longer find that option. :(


Erik you really need to get us some Taiga giants soon as well.


Let's face it. The commoner minis are super necessary for combat especially in urban campaigns, they may not be exciting. BUt when a fight breaks out on a city street, all these merchants, and commoners are bound to be in the way. As for dungeon dressing, again it makes life much easier to have physical representations of stuff.


James would followers, alien races and aberration followers of the Dark Tapestry set up civilizations on 1) rogue planets floating far from a star.
2) Planets surrounding a brown dwarf star.

How common is it for a human in the inner sea region to have a trace amount of "other"(elven, outsider, other humanoid) blood in them?

So i would like your opinion on my solution for trace ancestry of other humanoids in humans in game? Meaning any other bloodline other than human in a human that isn't making up half of the person. Basically if one of your great grandparents is an elf, then you have a chance to be born half elf, but if you're not you can have elven characteristics (purely cosmetic no game effect). For example my chelaxian heritage human cleric of Iomedae has an aasimar sister. He was born with pupiless sky blue eyes and shocking white hair, but is human. He may have trace amounts of celestial blood with no game effect. Does this sound like a good solution?
My opinion is to let the creator of the character do what they want. Minor cosmetic things like this that don't have game effects are fun to make characters unique, but the GM needs to be the one who gets final say. Every GM will have a different threshold as to what "minor cosmetic features" constitute after all.

Luckily I am the GM. I was just seeing what you thought of my GM solution is all :)

I am also happy to see, Caitlyn Jenner has finally been presented. I hope she finds fulfillment and happiness with her new life.


I really do wish there was a Golarion specific guide to this sort of thing. I would love this sort of intrigue when it comes to gender and sexuality. I mean it is a huge part of everyones identity. (And yes asexuality included). This sort of intrigue is important, and the views of each society in golarion on the topic is important. It really helps you to really get immersed in the cultures. I know this kind of product is unlikely to happen, but I'm just saying it would be awesome.


Is it true that if you type google into Google, you will cause an infinite logic loop in googles systems that will break the internet? If so I'm terrified I might do it out of a mad whim.

2) It's rude to bring up a name forced on a person and associated with a bad period in their life, like if you were sharing the childhood nickname bullies used to use to taunt them.

3) Even if you're not trying to hurt them with their deadname, you've just put a tool in everyone's hands around you to hurt your friend should the whim strike them.

4) A lot of trans women try to hide elements of their past, to protect themselves from old harassment or violence, or even just to get or keep a job. Sharing deadnames makes it easier to track old information they'd rather leave buried.

4) You can absolutely talk about someone else deadnaming your friend without mentioning their deadname yourself.

Mentioning her old name was absolutely irrelevant to the story, and your story was specifically that she was upset with someone using it.

A lot of the pain of these things we're talking about isn't immediately obvious, and doesn't become obvious until you've begun your transition and seen the world try to tear you down on a constant basis. Being respectful in your language, especially towards a minority group, isn't about "If you say X word, trans people will have nervous breakdowns," it's about helping create a world that isn't constantly and subtly aggressive, that doesn't wear people down. It's about showing a disrespected group a modicum of respect in a very hostile world.

Not to mention, invoking a trans woman's deadname grants you the power to summon her. But not to bind her. It's just safer for everyone involved.

You just peeked my anxiety a bit. A friend of mine transitioned about 10 years ago. And I knew her long before she transitioned, and would often say her dead name (by accident while not thinking) shortly after she had chosen her new name. I feel really bad now. I know it wasn't intentional and she seemed quite fine and understood. But still.......

So James. If you ever develop Arcadia in the pathfinder world. Is there anyway I can make myself available to be a helpful resource? I have a masters degree in theology specializing in alternative and historical religions. Amateur archeologist specializing in native american (mostly northern and canadian tribes). As well as owning and studying many ethnographies of many varying native american tribes. I have also developed many native american flavored magic items, and organizations that I had hoped to submit to rpg superstar (but didn't because I lacked confidence, and thought no one would be interested). Just wanted to know if I could ever be of assistance? As i believe it can be done quite tastefully.

Kalindlara,
Just know that there are folks out there who can relate to the things you are going through. I went through major depression for a time and managed to crawl out. It was the hardest time of my life. It feels utterly hopeless but please know it's never completely hopeless. I can't relate to what it is to be someone trapped inside yourself like a trans person. But I can relate to pretending to be someone you're not as a gay man. I did it for so many years and it made me miserable. My case was extreme as well as I did end up losing my friends and family and had to go out on my own. BUT and this is a big BUT. I made new friends, I found my husband who I love with all my heart. I am now living my dream of exploring Europe (moved to England last year). I know from your vantage point it all seems dark, and me saying that it gets better is a platitude. But it really really does. And you need to know there are those of us out there who would accept you just as you are and would be there to support you through any transition. But please above all, you need to see someone who can help about the suicidal thoughts. You are a unique and special person, and people like you are needed for society to move forward. Your loss isn't something that people would just get over, and as a society we would be loss for your loss. Please find some support somewhere near you.


I know I should be asking Sutter this. But In our solar system we have detected possible signs of life on many moons around gas giants in our solar system. (1. The red tinge of the ice on Europa is quite possibly caused by bacteria much like bacteria here on earth. 2. Anomalous readings on Titan that would be consistent with creatures breathing, as well as having a chemically active atmosphere rich with carbon compounds which on helped to lead to life, 3. Enceladus also has a internally heated salt water ocean. It is the only place other than earth we have observed to be hydrothermally active, conditions ripe for chemosynthetic life.) My question is are the moons of the gas giants in Golarions Solar system equally full of life?


To be honest I just have so sympathy for the Transgender folks out there including Bruce Jenner. As a gay man it was hard enough without any gender identity issues, with the nightmare of my family. I can only imagine how it is for trans folks to know who they are deep down, and then to have to go through such a hard transition socially after coming out. Then physically over a number of years, and even after the transition still facing opposition. Being gay is hard enough I'm not sure I would have the inner strength you folks do.

Ugh, why o why do I keep subjecting myself to reading any comments on LGBT news on any news network. It's always full of hateful remarks that get me down.


Tell me James if I am portraying Pharasma incorrectly in my home games. In my home games Pharasma is the goddess of the life cycle to most folks. She is the balance of the life cycle. She is just as much the goddess of Birth as of death. Certain cultures may emphasize one aspect over another but she isn't just a goddess of death.


Thank you Sharaya. You're awesome :)


And if this order ships before it can be amended. Please ship my Adventure Path #92 ASAP. I need my fix :)


Thanks for the insight Lissa. The only thing I ever care about is if someone is an a--hole or if someone is a bigot. I can't associate with those type of folks. Everyone else to me are just people. I hope this makes him feel much better to know we will never be bothered by it.


Everything seems in order except my Adventure Path #92 is missing from the email.

So one of my new friends here in the UK, just came out as trans to my husband and I. He was super stoked to learn that it doesn't bother Hubby and I at all. I just feel bad that he felt it would be an issue in the first place :( I really hope I don't give off that vibe.

I was actually thinking of converting that to a more spelljammer like society.

As for Unity using this kind of analogue I am sure I can come up with something suitable to replace it using this idea.
At that point, your change is drastic enough that you might as well get rid of Numeria and start from scratch.

Thanks for the suggestion but I much rather the conversion idea :)

I think I can change enough to make it more palatable to those who are more distasteful of sci fi in fantasy.

**Disclaimer** This is not a thread to debate this preference. This is a how too thread. So I respect your preference to not agree but this isn't the place to voice it.

So with that over with, I was planning on eliminating all the sci fi elements out of Golarion by playing up the clockwork angle. Add a bit of steam powered clockwork robots (very rare). I plan on turning androids into clockwork people with porcelain like facades. Play up Brigh in her more gearworks aspect. Eliminate all laser guns to primitive firearms level just like other areas of Golarion. Anyone have any other cool tips to add to this?

Thanks for the support folks. I don't expect much to change between me parents and me. But I do think I gave them time to think. In the end however they would have to own up to some wrong doing, and I just don't see that in them. My mother is always full of excuses to pass off things like this. And my father is so bullheaded he is unlikely to change his views. I feel comfortable and happy for the first real time of my life and it only moving away from North America and never hoping to return. Having an ocean between me and my problems seems to have finally given me breathing room.

So i think I finally got through to my mother and father. It took a lot but I apologize I need to rant.

I asked her to just take away her preconceptions about my homosexuality (fundamentalist christian).
I asked her to think what if I grew up knowing I was gay. What if I grew up and and only had the input that I was going to hell, for something no matter how hard and how earnestly I prayed wouldn't go away. On top of that I couldn't dare let anyone in my life know. My family was all fundamentalist redneck christians. My friends were all fundamentalist christians. My community was mostly so in a rural farming area. So should anyone find out they wouldn't help me. The best i could hope for is to be disowned, shunned, and thrown out of the house.

Now lets pile on the fact I was bullied at school for being super quiet and not one of the normal boisterous guys. I played sports, I worked on the farm. But i wasn't one of the guys. I didn't belong. School was hell, home wasn't any better.

At home my step father I was emotionally and physically abused by my step father. My mother who for years protected the man finally stopped doing so. (he has passed away in 2003) As hard as I try I can't remember one positive word that man ever said to me. The best i could hope for from him was to be ignored. Because if I wasn't ignored I was insulted, yelled at hit, and punished. That was the extent of our relationship. I finally stopped her defence of him. She always maintained that he was majorly abused as a child and that he did care for us. I broke and yelled that even if that was the case he is an adult, I was a child. He had no right to abuse me. At his age he was responsible for his own actions and she should have stepped in. If any government employee found out my brother and I would have been removed.

I asked her if all that was true does my life long struggle with anxiety make sense? If it was all true does my desire to get away and never come back to that place make sense? If it was all true does it make sense why I haven't visited home in the past 10 years make sense?

As for my father he pretended he was father of the year material, and I put him in his place. He knew all the abuse was happening and did nothing about it. He is just a guilty as my mother.
The conversations ended on a very different note than ever before. My mother seemed almost depressed. And my father was silent for the first time I can remember. I hope they can begin to understand.


I remember the days of that dragon head popping into threads. Always awesome. I remember when he left as well. I was sad to see him go. RIP Mike. And condolences to all your family and friends.

I like the idea of the raptor having a cool colored display crest and or colored streak. Maybe not brown either. I'd think off white with maybe specks.

So noted on the dinosaur colors. That's an excellent point.

Remember, birds did evolve from dinosaurs. Birds use feathers for a couple reasons. One is insulation, the other is display. It may not have to be a complete color change most birds only have a few feathers that form patterns that they use for mating display. So a splash of color would go a long way.

Edit: Also Deinonychus is often thought of as a pack stealth hunter. So it's coloration would likely be more inline with it's habitat along with it's display pattern. ( I will also emphasize MOST bird display patterns aren't nearly as colorful or bright as a macaw, Tucan, or colorful paradise birds).


So Erik when are we going to get more huge minis? It's honestly the biggest gap in miniatures to date. I know you guys could figure it out.

I see a bit of apprehension and awkwardness here and there about the transgender community. So I hope that my personal guidelines can help some folks and aren't taken offensively by anyone. I have befriended, worked, served, and been in community events with Transgender folks the past 10 years. Being part of the LGBT community has helped me a few guidelines.
1) Doesn't matter what a person looks like, dresses like, or is. They are a person, and deserve to be treated respectfully. Your personal internal comfort is irrelevant.
2) You don't need to know, guess, or ask about someones born biological gender. It isn't relevant, it isn't your business.
3) The gender that is presented is the gender they are, unless otherwise told.
4) Their struggle is not the same as your struggle. You may both face some similar discrimination occasionally. But their internal struggle and external struggle are very unique. The best thing you can do is be supportive and be there.


Today is one of those days that has really gotten me down. I just feel after fighting (again) with my mother over trivial crap that if I had a choice I wouldn't be the gay man I am. I am so sick of being yelled at by both my parents. I'm sick of the blind hatred of my step-father. I'm sick of all the hateful comments I see on any political news site I go to. Or even online movie reviews of all things. I'm sick of the awkwardness that inevitably happens when ever I meet someone new and they find out I'm gay. I'm sick of all the people who want denounce my marriage to my husband or think it's their business to comment on it. I just really tired of it all today. These days really suck.


Unfortunately until finances pick up I need to make a sacrifice. But i will pick it up again in the future.


Many believe the attacks that started yesterday are related to the ISIS threat against Canada. None of that has been confirmed. So far:
2 Soldiers run down by man in truck in truck in Quebec
Shots fired on Parliament hill, while parliament was in session and the Prime Minister was present

It's so sad to see this happening in my home country :(


1)After your unfortunate consumption by black fire and transportation to Pazuzus realm, how are you fairing?
2) How was Pazuzus Realm?
3) Did you get away with Eyes, tongue, and other soft tissue bird pecking areas intact?
4)Now that we have a Pazuzu miniature can you on my behalf pester Erik until we get a gargantuan Dagon miniature?

I can start with my experience as a non effeminate gay male. It becomes very awkward with a new gaming group and even just day to day life. No one expects me to be gay. They don't see any of the stereotypical signs. And because of very prevalent heterosexism, I find I have to come out of the closet a lot. As a matter of course while at work, if it comes up I say I have a "spouse". I do this because I find work a mostly inappropriate place to discuss my personal life, and I try to never do it outside of breaks or with customers. But with every new employee, and eventually regular customers, I have to come out again. They refer to my wife "my wedding ring is visible" and I have to correct them. And it always seems super awkward, but never hostile. But I just wish the awkwardness would go away.....
That is my struggle in every day life and in Gaming circles. Anyone else wish to continue and get it off their chest?

It depends on whether or not I'm read as a trans woman. Back before hormone therapy, when I had trouble passing, I had to deal with stares and exclusion from a lot of public games, and endured a lot of giggles and angry glares at the game store (this was back in the south). It was stressful enough that I only gamed with my friends; I wouldn't do store games (or wouldn't come back to them) or cons.

Once I started hormones, people just took me for a tall cis woman, and while I've had to deal with plain-old-misogyny, the most frustrating thing I have to deal with are people I game with or otherwise like making crappy trans jokes right in front of me, not knowing I was the kind of person they were tell horrible jokes about. It makes it hard to like gaming with someone after they do that. If it gets bad, depending on whether I feel...

Thanks for the insight Crystal. And thank you to Artemis as well.

I very much disagree with the statement on your belief of the origins of homosexuality. In fact homosexuality is found in many animals considered not to have higher thought. In fact I can tell you that we have found homosexuality in over 1500 species. Ranging from gut worms to primates. In 500 of of those species it is actually quite well documented and observed. In fact I know the main researcher who studied the lesbian Albatross phenomenon personally, through my husband who works for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

I also see you overlooked my post. On top of that of the idea you think that homosexuality could be a choice. Which no scientific expert (In the human sexuality field) supports. There is a scientific theory out there called the KIn gene theory which demonstrates how homosexuality is likely not an aberration or a mistake.

Too much gender and sexuality issues awareness...

I watched combat in one of new Mortal Kombat games with someone playing Sonya... After the end of the fight her outfit got magically shredded (it seemed ok until the very end) revealing underboobs. Which also seemed to be larger than during the fight...

While I like seeing not fully clothed women, it looked ridiculous and unnecessary...

Now, I dislike the Mortal Kombat series for many reasons, its contemptuous treatment of women among them, but there's actually a reasonable explanation for that - most women when engaging in physical activity that they knew about ahead of time wear an athletic bra in lieu of the regular kind. Athletic bras tend to squish and minimize breasts, so if the bra got shredded for any particular reason, instant rather larger underboob would result. Of course given that this is Mortal Kombat, Sonya is probably rather more worried about the instant disembowelment to follow...

It's still disgusting for any number of reasons, but certainly not outside the world of possibility.

...But I like Mortal Kombat(though I sure as hell ain't taking it even remotely seriously)...

Just saying it should be fair. If we have Sonya with underboob, is there any reason why we couldn't have this guy?

I agree with this. as a gay married man myself, I doubt i would eat or patron someplace I know doesn't like me for something I had no control over. I am all for having boundaries and try to be as moderate as possible. But if someone is running a company and donates money to anti-gay charity I don't think I want to give them my money to help donate with.
