Congratulations, Michael!!

Andoran

A great conclusion to a great story. I think that the current pharoah will find that his sister is NOT very happy with him. I particularly liked how Jasilia figured out how to escape the city.

Andoran

I rather like the strategy that Jasilia used and I really liked the reference to Ra. I await next week's entry.

Uh, this is completely counter to the whole creation story with Ihys.

I was under the impression that the creation myth was at least partially "in-character" and thus prone to being wrong. But that is pretty interesting.

EDIT: ninja'd!

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.

Andoran

Congratulations, Owen!! I hope that the new job is all that you desire and that Seattle quickly becomes your new home.

Andoran

I enjoyed this, as we got into more of the history of the characters. Mind you, I am not sure how they are getting out of this mess.

Andoran

I have been swamped, but I will send out some more tomorrow night. If anyone wants some copies, please post in the thread.

Andoran

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.

Andoran

The link for the Drakelands Barbarian did not open up in Chrome when I clicked to see the details. This is indeed a great set.

She may indeed. :) Though not necessarily the same ones as, say, her brother, the Ruby Prince.

Trust me when I say I have seen people from the same family turn out to be very different people.

Jasilia is definitely an interesting viewpoint character to write.

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.

Congratulations, Joanna!!!

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.

Andoran **

Glad to have helped, Brian!! I am glad that we got some new people, who will hopefully be involved in PFS in the future.

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 enjoyed the story and I like the characterization a lot.

Andoran

Very good illustrations. I am interested in learning how much influence Qadira had on Osirion's development, in terms of culture, architecture, and now how Osirionis are trying to establish their own cultural identity form the disparate threads of their past.

Andoran

Good action and characterization. I am hoping to see more of this next week.

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?

Andoran **

Please join us for athfinder Society Organized Play this Thursday at 5:30 PM Central at Lightspeed Hobbies, 5884 US Highway 6, Portage, Indiana 46368. We will run The Many Fortunes of Grandmaster Torch (Season 0-14, Tiers 1-7), The Confirmation (Season 5-08, Tiers 1-2) and a new character clinic.

Andoran **

I think that there were more people at Arcticon this year, and I liked the new venue.

Andoran **

We had a great turn out. Thanks to Brian Mooney for organizing PFS at Arcticon, to everyone who made Arcticon happen, to my fellow GMs, to our players. We had a lot of fun and saw some familiar faces and new ones.

Andoran **

Hi, Noelle!! I am looking forward to tomorrow and I think that you will have fun. I hope for a great turnout!

Andoran **

We are all set for tomorrow. I hope that we will have some good turn out not just from Northwest Indiana gamers, but people from elsewhere in Indina, Chicago and the nearby suburbs, and perhaps some of the good PFS folks in Michigan.

Andoran **

I hope that we will have a few GMs step up. Brian, I presume that anyone who is not on your regular mailing list can contact you through the board.

Andoran **

Hopefully, some of the people who play PFS in South Bend can make it to Arcticon this Sunday.

Andoran **

We still have a lot of room for players at the tables. So, feel free to check out the links. The student union building is very easy to find as Valpaaraiso University is on U.S. Route 30.

Andoran

I enjoyed the except and I look forward to the next installment.

Andoran **

I am signed up to run No Plunder, No Pay and Port Godless.

So feel free to join us on Sunday, March 9th from 9:30 AM to 10:30 PM at Valparaiso University Harre Student Union, 1509 Chapel Drive, Valparaiso, IN 46383.

For the website, please go to http://arcticon.webs.com/for information on admission fees and other events.

Congratulations, John!

Andoran

Okay, check your e-mails. I will try to check this thread once a week from now on. Again, sorry for any delays in getting this out.

Andoran

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:
I replaced the medusa with a troll, who like some in Kaer Maga, reads the future from his own entrails.
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.

Andoran **

Congratulations, Katie!!! This is indeed a great accomplishment.

So, do you have any good advice for GMs or players?

Andoran

Best wishes to Sean and Jodi in their new lives. Sean, you have done a lot of gaming and created many products that I have enjoyed over the years. Thank you for your hard work and I look forward to seeing what you create in the future.

Andoran **

Count me in as a GM.

Andoran

Well done, Steve!! I enjoy your posts.

Andoran

I enjoyed the interesting approach in how to deal with a powerful creature -- appeal to its vanity. I truly liked the characterization and look forward to the next installment.

Andoran

Thanks for sharing this, Lisa!! My own memories parallel this, and I too have lost a few gaming friends over the years.

Andoran **

Please join us for Pathfinder Society Organized Play this Thursday at 5:30 PM Central at Lightspeed Hobbies, 5884 US Highway 6, Portage, Indiana 46368. We will run Black Waters (Season 0-6, Tiers 1-5) and the Sanos Abduction (Season 4-05), Tiers 3-7).

Give Paizo a few more years -- it's all still pretty new (compared to FR).

That being said, the Pathfinder Chronicles are a pretty reasonable equivalent to Realms Lore.

If you're a Pathfinder then you probably hope to publish your own journal in the Pathfinder Chronicles, meaning there's lots of Pathfinder Chronicles out there to read. Cooler than Elminster's drivel or the silly Vollo's Guides since the Chronicles are written by adventurers (mostly actual PCs).

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.)

Andoran

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.

Louis, my deepest condolences to you, your family and your friends on this tragic news. May Carla's memory be for a blessing and a source of strength and comfort for you in the days ahead.

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.

Andoran

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.

Andoran **

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.)

Congratulations, Bill!!!

Wow, so many recent requests for this conversion. Please send it my way as well:

** spoiler omitted **

KotB fits nicely into the hexcrawl that I'm building to introduce my gaming group to PF. We're currently in the final stretch of a 70+ session 2e Temple of Elemental Evil campaign.

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.

Due to the snowstorm now hitting Chicagoland and Northwestern Indiana, we are CANCELING today's session of Pathfinder Society. Please join us at Lightspeed Hobbies in two weeks.
