My biggest beef with Sarenrae is that myself and everyone at my table went to school with a girl named Sara Ray. So if Sarenrae ever gets brought up I never hear the end of 'Paladins of Sara Ray' jokes.
At least that they are not Paladins of Saran Wrap. ;)
It should be noted that historical deities were seen in different ways over time. So, it is not surprising that worshippers of Saranrae in Kelesh, Absalom, and Varisia may have very different takes on the deity.
I am excited by these announcements. Although I play a rogue in PFS and happy with it (I have played RPGs since 1980), I know that the rogue is a source of concern for many. I do hope that we see play testing. (Hmm, maybe in addition to improved defenses, the rogue can get something like limited damage from non-sneak attacks that reflects the rogue looking for weaknesses in a foe and finding them.)
Similarly, while I have not played a summoner, I know that sometimes summoners take up a lot of time in combat with a horde of summoned creatures. Also, a few people have told me stories about how syntheists have completely outclassed several other characters of equal level at a table. (To me, Rule Zero is that everyone at a gaming table should have fun.)
It sounds like everyone is having a great time at PaizoCon.
Arcturus24, I am experiencing the same error.
Very interesting developments. I think that my Osirioni ranger may still feel at home in his faction.
As for the Sovereign Court, I think that the question will be what virtues are promoted by it. I can see several players of Taldan characters liking this move.
Mind you, I think that there will be some common ground at times between the different factions. (For example, I could see many Pathfinders supporting the spread of knowledge.)
I am interested in how these changes will be introduced in game and looking forward to how it is handled.
Yes, and as some of the spammers seem to be posting about what may be taken as breeding, surely we are seeing the followers of Rovagug here.
Seriously, I know that this is hard work. I have a friend in Phoenix who did a radio show and worked hard to keep his board free of spam one weekend while he was out. It is not easy.

Isn't there also a super powerful gold dragon living there in charge of the country. It might look sideways at an invasion.
I think that you are confusing Rahadoum with Hermea.
One reason that Rahadoum may have survived is that many of its neighbors like to have it as a buffer state and a trade partner. Thuvia is probably happy that they do not border Cheliax.
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.
