Pazuzu does indeed look amazing. (My old D&D group had a few run ins with him.)

Andoran

It is late, but I will send out some copies this weekend. I am amazed that the requests are still coming in.

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. ;) )

Ever find out if there is pathfinder groups in the south bend area?

There is. Just check this subforum. They are quite active.

Andoran

Well done, PFS!!!

Andoran

Congratulations to everyone who made this happen. Did the 8,736 players seated include the same people showing up for multiple events or were these individual players? Either way, it is an impressive figure.

I am also pleased to see that the kids track went well!!

Andoran

I wonder how many people I can recognize if I blew up the photo.

Andoran

Congratulations, Paizo!!

Andoran

Congratulations!! I hope that we get more news soon!

Andoran

Looks great!!

Andoran

Quinn would be amused not just at the attire of the people in line, but probably amused and mystified by a smartphone.

Andoran

Cute. I hope we get a report on how PFS is going, and how the tables for young people are doing.

Andoran

The lines are long but the crowd looks happy!

Andoran

It looks like they are beat. Hopefully, they are refreshed and can have somehtign good for dinner.

Andoran **

Congratulations, Tim!!

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.

Hey,

just thought I would mention that I am having trouble getting to the PFS blog on the chrome browser

http://paizo.com/paizo/blog/tags/pathfinderSociety

When I try and access that page it acts like its done loading and shows only a white page. When trying to access from internet explorer on the same machine it appears to load correctly.

Installed Extensions - Avast! Online Security, EditThisCookie, Logmein AND Reddit Enhancement Suite.

None of which (except potentially Avast) should be preventing this page from loading.

I am using Chrome and tried the link. I only briefly saw the page before it went white.

The changes sound interesting. I would like to see more about archetypes. Is there an archetype that replaces the animal companion with something else?

The article says, "the the feral hunter trades out the animal companion to gain permanent bonuses, wild shape, and boosts to summoned allies," so the answer is "yes".

Thanks. I imagine that the feral hunter is the "lone hunter" archetype. I must have read too fast.

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?")

If you include an e-mail, yes.

Wow, what a big thread. I haven't flipped through it all, but I thought I'd add my name to the list, if you don't mind sending it. I want to use it to introduce my daughter and some of her friends to the game, and though this would be a great break in module. :D

Anyway, I'm tumakhunter (at) gmail, and thank you very much, for this and for your work on it.

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.

Andoran

I was lucky to live in Chicago, so there was less pressure here than elsewhere. My high school had a club and the local library supported us, as we checked out books.

My friends and I got some materials to counter the hate, and we had few problems at my high school.

Andoran

As time was of the essence, I think that Caron made the right choice in hurrying after her husband. She had no idea how much time had passed when she was unconscious.

Andoran **

Osirianis have often CREATED undead as guardians, so Silver Crusade or Andoran might be better fits. (Undeath can be a form of slavery.) Grand Lodge might work as well.

Andoran **

Congratulations, Tony!!

Andoran

So, how many people went to the delve?

Andoran

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.

May I also receive a copy of this conversion? Thank you!

I need an e-mail address. You can post here, or private message me.

Andoran

I will get to this later tonight, folks.

If I was not so darn busy, I would update the mod further -- as I created it when I was pretty new to Pathfinder.

Andoran **

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.

Andoran

Congratulations, Mark!!

While it is sad to see that the Boston Lodge (which I have heard MANY good things about) is losing you, I think that you will do well.

Andoran **

Congrtualations, Joanna!!

Andoran

Check your e-mails. Again, sorry for the long delay.

Andoran

I will send some out this weekend.

I have been very busy of late, for good and bad reasons. (An old friend in his 90s passed away recently.) So, I will get to your requests.

Anyone else notice that Lissa's avatar switched to the goddess of cleansing flame around the time this swarm started demanding her attention?

Clearly another Paizo employee needs to switch to an Asmodeus avatar and construct some sort of quarantined area to confine this spammer.

The reenactment of the Godwar has already started! It has to be finished properly!

Seriously though, many thanks for doing this and condolences on having to put up with it.

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.

Andoran

This cretin has a few posts. Here is one of his threads.

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.

Andoran

Keep up the good work.

Andoran **

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.
