I have transcribed the parts of the podcast where Crystal gives summaries for the individual adventures, and a few other information regarding the AP. This is mostly verbatim, by Crystal:

This AP is set in Nirmathas where a former Molthuni mercenary legion called the Ironfang Legion, which is a unit of hobgoblins who've slowly been absorbing all the other hobgoblin units, has stumbled across an ancient artifact, and is now using that to carve out their own homeland on Nirmathas' and Molthune's border while those two nations distract each other.

Pathfinder Adventure Path #115, Trail of the Hunted by Amber Scott (February 2017):

Spoiler:
The AP begins with your lovely, quiet, peaceful home town where nothing ever goes wrong until a massive hundreds of hobgoblins descend on you, taking your neighbors slaves, putting everybody you don't like to the sword and you have to run around, gathering as many supplies and survivors as you can before hightailing it into the woods. The rest of the adventure is about dodging the dangers of the Fangwood forest and evading bounty hunters that the hobgoblins send after you while you carve out your own safe place to rest and recuperate.

Pathfinder Adventure Path #116, Fangs of War by Ron Lundeen:

Spoiler:
Eventually you regroup, you settle yourselves, you decide you need some allies, because hobgoblins just burned down your home. Being in the Chernasado region, you look for the Chernasado rangers for help, only to discover they're nowhere to be found. This adventure is about finding out where they went and why they are not doing their jobs, and what this strange new dragon in the area is doing!

Pathfinder Adventure Path #117, Assault on Longshadow by Benjamin Bruck:

Spoiler:
After rescuing the Chernosardo rangers you suddenly find yourself in charge of an army, just in time to find out where the Ironfang Legion is attacking next. They are attacking a mining-and-smelting town in western Nirmathas called Longshadow, and you take your much smaller force of guerillas and plucky PCs, and you basically spend the entire adventure conducting sabotage and harrying this invading force to weaken them as much as possible before an epic battle to save this town from being wiped off the map.

Pathfinder Adventure Path #118, Siege of Stone by Thurston Hillman:

Spoiler:
You discover the Ironfang Legion has recruited morlocks who are only seen in the Mindspin Mountains. You have to discover how the Ironfang Legion keeps attacking and then disappearing without a trace. You go on the investigate the morlock caverns only to discover that their new goddess isn't actually a goddess—she is a wormfolk with strange ties to dwarven artifacts and the Ironfang Legion. All of this points you to the dwarven Sky Citadel of Kraggodan. You battle your way through the Darklands and find your way into the Sky Citadel, convince the dwarves to help you, and then explore ancient, long-abandoned portions of the Sky Citadel looking for clues about an ancient dwarven artifact called the Onyx Key.

Pathfinder Adventure Path #119, Prisoners of the Blight by Amanda Hamon Kunz:

Spoiler:
The dwarves point you to an ancient fey empire in the middle of the Fangwood they have lost contact with. You are dispatched to the heart of the Fangfood, known as the Blight, to find out what is going on, deal with horribly infected, mutilated fey, fight more dragons, and finally free an ancient fey empire from the First World. You also find that the Ironfang Legion has been courting the Blight to try and recruit them to their side to found a monster nation, and in the process you discover that the Onyx Key is actually a series of stone roads that lead in and out of a vault built by the Vault Builders on the Elemental Plane of Earth.

Pathfinder Adventure Path #120, Vault of the Onyx Citadel by Larry Wilhelm:

Spoiler:
With an entire army of fey behind you, and dwarven lore and the Chernosardo rangers you can finally lay siege to the Ironfang Legion in their supposedly unassailable fortress deep in the Plane of Earth.You face down down ancient earth elementals in Vault Builder ruins and explore this time-forgotten caspule with an ancient citadel in the middle of it.

The covers will have classic monsters:

Spoiler:
bugbear, medusa, minotaur, dragon, hobgoblin.

The BBEG is apparently
Spoiler:
a hobgoblin swashbuckler!

Iconics for this adventure path are:

Spoiler:

* Lini, because it's a wilderness-themed adventure
* Adowyn, because it's a wilderness-themed adventure
* Feya, because she's kind of creepy and a little bit wild
* Jirelle, because she fits the Robin-Hood-theme originally envisaged with the AP

So ... Pathfinder Legends. If you've forgotten (or never knew), Big Finish Productions put out audio dramas covering Rise of the Runelords. They were pretty big downloads, compared to other products, but they aren't exactly RPG supplements. Despite their relative popularity here, it seems Big Finish Productions never made any other adventure paths into audio dramas.

They also adapted Mummy's Mask, and more is coming.

Well this is disingenuous, too, unless you want it to be the "Japan expy AP", which is something nobody ever promised.

All of our PCs use 25 point buy. We've known for years that we prefer high powered characters. (Yet somehow, we still die all the freaking time in other campaigns.)

Well, if you pride yourself on "running adventures as written" with 5 characters at 25 point buy, when the adventures are designed for four 15-point characters, you shouldn't really be surprised when your encounters are cakewalks.

Actually, the brand-new Pathfinder Companion: Spymaster's Handbook has rules for identifying the use of class features and feats. It is called the Recall Intrigues use of the Knowledge skill.

Lucifer is not something that is part of Paizo's setting, so I guess you are talking about some third party stuff that goes beyond the restiction Paizo uses for their game, such as "no stats for deities", or the CR30 limit.

I guess you're on your own there, and this thread belongs into the third-party/homebrew section of the from.

Edit: comfirmed that this refers to a statblock from Frog God Games' Tome of Horrors Complete. (I guess that's what happens when people browse d20pfsrd.com without realizing that it's not Paizo's site and assume everything there is part of official Pathfinder. Sigh. They really need to make the third party stuff even more obvious.)

I'll bite. What's exciting about Molthune and Nirmathas? To me they just seem like "Andoran versus Cheliax" Lite, less calories, less flavor, basic Euro-Anglo-Saxon medieval fantasy with no unique hooks. No tech like Numeria, no mammoths or a big demon chasm, no witch queens. Why should I give two figs about Molthune and Nirmathas?

Some people might actually like these countries exactly because they don't have any weird or outlandish hookups.

None of that is required for a new edition, unless your definition of the word is different than mine.

I know, but there was one poster calling for such measures.

Strange, I find it perfectly easy to search through my PDF collection. My PDF viewer keeps a full text index of all the PDFs and I just need to enter what I'm looking for, and I get a list of all the PDFs containing the sear term. Then I click on a book and get a list of all the search term's occurrences. Doesn't get much better.

I find the PFSRD useless for my purposes, though, especially since they (have to) manipulate names and do not always apply all the rules or corrections correctly.

Well you could buy an actual book, or PDF. Rulebook PDFs are cheap. If you rely exclusively on the PFSRD (which isn't even Paizo's site!), Paizo don't own you anything. If you don't want to pay, you can't expect to be allowed to make demands.

The only thing you can achieve by pitching something like that here is make sure that Paizo will certainly not create an adventure path in that vein.

The scenarios, as well as the adventure path "card" and the adventure "card" in this product are more than corresponding cards in the base set. Each is a full page of information. In addidtion you get 3 villain cards that are used in the scenario.

You do not need anything beside the base set to pay. You only need class decks to play if you want to play this in offical PFS form, but they can come in handy in normal play as well.

If that's the case why have a section devoted to making it a playable race

Note that the section says "Astomoi Characters", NOT "Astomoi Player Characters". Since astomoi is a race without racial hit dice, any astomoi necessariliy needs class levels, and that section is there for the GM to be able to create any astomoi at all. That does not imply the race is intended, or even practical, as a race for player characters. The fact that this race is only found in a bestiary, not in a player-oriented book, is another indication that it is primarily intended to be used for NPCs.

I'm using Feedly to track the posting feeds of various Paizo staff, such as for example Vic Wertz's feed which is linked here as http://paizo.com/people/VicWertz&xml=atom.

However, on or around February 23 something changed in the generation of these feeds, so that they are no longer recognized by Feedly and can no longer tracked in that way. I have contacted Feedly customer services about this, but it seems the the problem is on Paizo's side. They sent me a validator link that shows that the feed is not considered a valid feed:

https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fpaizo.com%2Fpeople %2FVicWertz%26xml%3Datom

Would it be possible to restore the valitdity of the feeds so they can once again be tracked by Feedly?
