Am I the only person who thinks...who cares?
It seems to me that too much emphasis being given to political corectness. There's the same number of male and female iconics, so it makes sense they'd push the idea of enforcing it in other areas, whether it's skin color, sexual orientation or whatnot.

So what? He still won't do even a point of damage to him, due to DR.
So, it's Xotani's idea (with his Int 3) to leave Golarion to court Ymeri and not Jhavhul's? I considered that odd, to say the least, since that was Jhavhul's plan all along.
oh, and page seven Jhavul becomes th e newest incarbarnation of xotani. laves little doubt to his evebtual mega-lomanic occupatio...
Once again, speculations without basis.
That's just your opinion, not a fact. As written, he blows up Kelmarane, does a bit rampage and moves on. AP also mentions nothing about 10s of miles around the volcano, it mentions miles.
Nevermind setting free the Spawn of Rovagug in Legacy ( have a quick look at how that affected the whole of Casaron )
But it's not a Spawn of Rovagug. It's his body, inhabited by an Efreet, who has an entirely different agenda than a mindless beast intent entirely on destruction. I mean, even the AP itself clearly states that Jhavhul soon leaves Katapesh for Plane of Fire, why would you assume he goes on a rampage through the whole Inner Sea Region?
Legacy of Fire's loss scenario involves a Spawn of Rovagug rampaging across Katapesh, which probably means that's going to be a win scenario...
I wouldn't be sure about that. Jhavhul's intentions are centered almost completely around courting Ymeri and while the AP states that he does rampage across Katapesh a bit (destroying a town that didn't exist before AP, namely), he leaves soon to woo his love interest.
And if Paizo forwards the timeline for a couple dozen of years, I reckon there wouldn't be much change to Katapesh before Jhavhul.
I never understood the point of topics such as these. Are we supposed to be impressed?
I'd have been if it involved a cunning plan, good story or intresting development, but this is just a combination of non-sensical characters (gunslinger/ninja/cleric, give me a break), bad house rules (why even call it a "fair" rule, critical hits already deal more damage, what would be the point of doing even more?), a party of seven characters and, from what I can see from other posts, not a good grasp of game mechanics which boils down to 'we nuked it with crits'.
Personally, I think he came to our world as Nikola Tesla. He did a bunch of cool stuff and then faked his death to go on to other places and projects. *joking*
Even though it's a joke, I still find it flattering that one of my countrymen is enjoying a world-wide fame (since we're not very well thought of, usually) and being compared to Nex. Thank you for that.
It's not like anyone will wear Heavyload Belt, with it being a belt. That's for a more precious stat-boosting item. Even spellcasters would want to increase their Con or Dex.
Just to be clear, I'm not happy about that because I hate it when cool items like a large number of magic cloaks will not be used because of the 'must-have' items, since you'll be failing a lot of saves without that Cloak of Resistance +5 or not be a very good Fighter without that Belt of Str +6...
Now, could I have done the Worldwound AP in a way that didn't involve direct encounters with a demon lord? Sure... but it would feel to me like a terribly missed opportunity and a let down and an anticlimax—just like if we say "This adventure sends you to Gallowspire" but then never lets you encounter the boss of that site, the Whispering Tyrant.
But... that's Carrion Crown basically. And there's been much debate over that, because the final boss never ever appeared in the AP and only the introduction of the 6th chapter made a suggestion to introduce him earlier (tough luck for those who played it as it was being published). Not only that, a lot of people on the boards were indeed disappointed with the end boss not being Whispering Tyrant.
The Hermea theory disgusts me. Why can't at least one place be genuinely good without being suddenly corrupted as hell by some dark secrets in it?
Because the dragon ruling it doesn't sound like a completely cool guy?
However, there are rumours that Hermean society is not the utopia it appears. Some foreign sailors perceive an undercurrent of fear beneath the citizens’ apparent contentment. There are even tales of rebels opposed to Mengkare’s rule hiding out in the forests at the far side of the island. And are the charred corpses that sometimes wash up on the shores of the island really the work of pirates?
You do know that gold dragons have fire breath? I wouldn't go so far as to say that he's an aboleth, but I'm of an opinion that he went too far with the whole 'for the greater good' idea.
This may seem like a dumb question, but in my group, we've always played that Glitterdust practically dispels invisibility and never really thought about it that much. But reading the description again, Glitterdust simply outlines invisible creatures and gives them a penalty on stealth checks. It never states that creatures lose the benefit of total concealment that invisibility provides.
So, my question is, is everyone playing it like this and 'visibly outlines' means only that you don't need to make perception checks to locate the creature's square but it still gets its 50% miss chance?
Oh, didn't get that one yet, so I didn't know.
That seems managable. On par with all other end bosses who party faces at lvl 17th.
A bit on the small side is stretching it. "Huge" Black Dragon is a Large Black Dragon on a huge base.
It's a wonderfuly crafted mini, no doubt about it, I just call it what it is, in terms of size.
He was 'just' a Great Wyrm Blue Dragon and Chosen of Zon-Kuthon. Says so in Inner Sea Magic.
That doesn't sound like 'just' to me.
My biggest problem is that a tech demo produced in 2012 looks not that much better than World of Warcraft pre-alpha videos. Not to mention that it's coming out in FOUR YEARS.
MMO is a dying genre. WoW still keeps strong, but only because he was #1 for a long period of years. Almost every other MMO went F2P (SW:TOR, recently) because they were losing subscribers drastically and that's basically the sign that it's doing badly. And all that because they don't offer anything new.
Now, Pathfinder Online will come out in 2016 and they haven't offered us anything never before seen. What I see is combination of WoW and EVE. While the premise is intresting, I don't believe it will be that good in four years.
So, they have a company that never made any other games, terrible release scheldue, no novel ideas, this is their second Kickstarter project for the same thing... Golarion is the only setting I play in PnP for the past 3-4 years and I can't see myself even glancing at this game.
Fortunately for you, it's available on PFSRD. Just google it a bit.
As for Ileosa, Bard makes sense to me, especially with the Court Bard archetype. But BBEG with NPC class levels? Well, that's just silly. I know it makes sense, on account her being an actual aristocrat, but it would also make sense for all those farmers turned adventurers when their village was destroyed by orcs to have levels of Commoner, but of course that doesn't happen.
