Well - maybe I'll try it at next Origins and have a high ranking judge (VL level or higher) weigh in on it. And I'll use a level 1 character so that I can re-spec if they decide to make it suck.
Well, since it is terribly written and Rhatahema's research shows it was not used as Charon's Little Helper thought, is there a weapon that comes closer to his desire to have a very versatile weapon to use for a throwing build?
I suspect that there will be a reckoning between Brea and Deagan. Let us say that the Kallistocracy is not looking very favorable here. I am reminded of a philosopher of the past century who said that when anything -- race, creed, or nation -- is elevated above hunanity, it turns to evil. In the case of this story, I think we have a good fictional case study.

I could see Deagan having some contingencies. I am not ruling out a set up, as there would be many who would benefit from his demise or disgrace.
Still, I think that we will see some investigation and confrontation next time. At a minimum, Deagan has some very bad information been given out as I think most people would distinguish between a hobgoblin and a goblin as a threat.
I got the joke! I imagine that due to Golarion's outer planes having multiple powers, there would be trouble for Hell and perhaps for Abadar.(I imagine Abadar would try to figure someway out of the mess, but if everyone's worshippers are impacted by the scam, he may want to hide in the First Vault.)

It could well be a set up. However, some people are arrogant enough and foolish enough to do so. So far, Deagan has demonstrated that he is arrogant and has displayed poor judgment. I shall eagerly await the next installment of this series.
The casualty count is very high for Brea's soldiers. Suffice it to say, I expect there will be a reckoning soon. It could well be that someone has set up Deagan, but would not exposing and blackmailing him be much more of a punishment in Druma?
Well, for my highest level character in PFS, Ellestron Makkarios, I took a Welsh first name and a Gaulish last name.
Amanar Bakare is a Thuvian ranger. His first name is Berber (Tamazight) for the constellation Orion and his last name is Egyptioan.
Cael Ardan, a refugee from Ramziran who would like to see Ramzir's head and body on a pike, has his name drawn from Celtic sources.
Kelannon, an elven rogue, has a name that is vaguely Celtic.
Tevieil Ellyllion is derived from a Hebrew word for world and Ellyllion, Middle Welsh for "Of the Elves"
Alarun Rachlav is a mixture of Norse and Slavic names for a Varisian/Ulfen witch.
Feel free to use a lot of different sources, and remember that people do move about on Golarion or from beyond. (Hey, at least we don't have many names like Mayor Charles Oliver O'Kane from Ravens Bluff in the Forgotten Realms. I thought that I could find that one in the Chicago phone book. ;) )
On a few occasions, I have seen parties in trouble claim that they are the Aspis Consortium.
In general, identifying themselves as Pathfinders in places known for tyrannical governments or superstitious societies seldom does any good. Mind you, I would expect the Pathfinder Society to get some good PR out of season five.

I am using Chrome and tried the link. I only briefly saw the page before it went white.
Thanks. I imagine that the feral hunter is the "lone hunter" archetype. I must have read too fast.
The changes sound interesting. I would like to see more about archetypes. Is there an archetype that replaces the animal companion with something else? (If I played a hunter, I would likely go with a companion. However, it never hurts to have options.)
Also, Mark, can you maybe comment on the hunter's role? I can see hunters working well with druids and rangers, but perhaps being more focused on eliminating enemies. (Maybe a motto of the Green Faith is "Send a druid to teach and restore, a ranger to guide and defend, and a hunter to kill?")
Check your e-mail.
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.
