With three separate APs within it's borders and the specter of the place all over Crimson Throne, I think we can explore other places of Golarion for a little while.Gotta agree completely with this. Don't get me wrong, Cheliax is all sorts of interesting, and devils are my favorite evil outsider. And I get that writing political adventures that also appeal to the highest breadth of tables is easier when there's more a black-and-white baseline beneath all of the intrique... But Taldor just seems to be begging for a similar opportunity all its own. As a country, it spans the breadth of "hard-working poor peasants besieged by monsters" common to most old-school settings, all the way to "semi-Victorian nobility playing a shadow war of power in the termite-ridden, gilt-covered seat of power."
okay, but here's the kicker: Cheliax has everything that Taldor has PLUS devils.
So, why bother with Taldor if you have something so much better right there? If you have an idea for a Taldor AP that can't be run in Cheliax OR that devils wouldn't make better, I'd really like to hear it, because I can't think of one.
