I work under the assumption that mortals may never know the full truth of the origins of the multiverse and that you must always examine the credibility of any source. In the case of the Book of the Damned, the narrator may not be reliable nor would I consider Asmodeus an always honest source.
Dwarves are already known for being very focused on whatever they do, so I am not sure how much of a change this would make to dwarven culture. The iconic dwarven ranger Harsk seems to be very determined already.
Perhaps what might be a more interesting question is how can dwarven cultures vary. I know that some developers think that dwarves are often portrayed in a stereotypical way, very close to Tolkien's descriptions. However, there is no logical reasonwhy they might have to stay that way. Human cultures can and do vary greatly, so I see no reason why their could not be similar diversity in non human cultures.

Oh, I enjoy it. I think that Jasilia does have her own opinions, and much is influenced by her class -- and she may well have her own prejudices deriving from her position to overcome.
I enjoyed this, as Osirion is one of my favorite places on Golarion. The Risen Guard is also a fascinating concept -- and we see the issue of class playing a part in Osirion.
Mind you, my PFS characters would have something to say about the remark about Pathfinders. ;) I am looking forward to the next installment in the series.
Chelaxians utilize devils to serve them, not the other way around (and it could be argued that Chelaxians feel superior to everybody, not just devils). Tieflings are walking proof that somewhere somebody succumbed to the temptations of a devil (or other extraplanar being)—a failure to maintain the hierarchy and order.
The rhetoric of Cheliax can be used as "Hell serves Cheliax." While it can be argued that this is actually the other way around (sorry, I do not think House Thrune has gotten the best of Asmodeus in their dealings), appearances are important in Cheliax. Tieflings in Cheliax meet with scorn, but may be held to a slightly higher standard than halflings -- who are commonly seen as slaves. Mind you, any tiefling with demonic origins might want to consider leaving Cheliax.
I really like this, as I can see the gods of Ancient Egypt in the Pathfinder Universe exerting an influence on Golarion, as a certain Old One has done. I had hoped to also see Khnum, the Nile god, as a god of waters, but maybe he can be saved as a local deity for an area near Osirion as he was adopted from Nubia as I recall.
Will any of this be Pathfinder Society legal?

Let me offer my apologies for not getting back to the thread lately. I do plan to send out copies this weekend.
Insnare, one thing that I tried to do with keeping things gritty was to make sure that the guards were definitely not as tough as a typical PC. I also threw in the cult of Lamashtu as a unifying force for the Caves of Chaos and altered one of the final encounters to reflect the presence of the cult.
Spoiler:In retrospect, there are some things I would likely change if I was doing the conversion again -- as I am a lot more familiar with Pathfinder than I was when I did the original conversion.
I replaced the medusa with a troll, who like some in Kaer Maga, reads the future from his own entrails.

Add to this the fact that the adventures cover a number of scenarios, and the heroes can range from the morally ambiguous to the truly heroic.
One thing that I like about Golarion is that the focus is largely on the PCs in adventures. There may be a few heroes out in the world, but most are pretty busy. (Some do have interesting back stories. I think that any Pathfinder would love to spend a few hours chatting with Old Mage Jatembe if he is still around.)
This is a good cause. I am familiar with similar charities, like Goats for the Old Goat as well as Heifer International, both of which works to supply animals to people in South Sudan. Such charities have the goal of helping people become more self sufficient and alleviating poverty.
James, thanks for promoting this cause. Hopefully, Worldbuilders will see a lot of help from Paizo fans. This is a chance to bring some good to this world.

I miss the old crew. Be sure to remind everyone that Winter War is next weekend, 24-26 January, in Champaign and we still have open seats for players. Pre-registration will close on the 18th, so they should sign up and come on down for a weekend of great fun!
Bob, I will do so. We miss you as well. I wish that I could make Winter War but maybe we can game together another time.
I learned yesterday that my friend Terry, better known online as Edena of Neith or Edelaith, is dead. Some here might have known him from the Wizards of the Coast forums or EN World. I started a thread at EN World, Rest in Peace, Edena of Neith to honor the memory of a friend and veteran gamer whom I hope is finally at peace.
Let me welcome everyone to our first events of the new year for Pathfinder Society Organized Play. We will meet this Thursday at 5:30 PM Central at Lightspeed Hobbies, 5884 US Highway 6, Portage, Indiana 46368. We are offering The Blackros Matrimony (Season 4-09, Tiers 3-7) and The Veteran's Vault (Season 4-18, Tiers 1-5.)
Glad to help. I tied this into the country of Lastwall in the Golarion Campaign Setting.
4saken1, I have no plan to stop distributing this.
