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.

Agreed. Stupid beyond stupid. Really starting to wonder what the (re)designers are thinking...

Second-level corollary: Don't ask a FAQ you don't want to hear the answer to.

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.

I'd really love to be able to playtest this. This seems to be exactly the ruleset I'd need to finally put into existence my long-hedged plan of setting Green Ronin's Freeport Trilogy on a space station.

If your character concept's linchpin is the availability of a single underpriced and overpowered item, well...

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.

Fortification armor is literally better now. As is the Buffering Cap. There's no reason to have the Jingasa anymore.

Which in my mind is a much better mechanic than there being no reason NOT to have it.

Why wouldn't Hell's Rebels count as "traditional"?

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.

Just remember that teleporting does not work on raging superstitious barbarians, because they can't be a willing target.

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.

The first thought that entered my mind when reading the thread title was "how many kobolds do you need for a dragonhide armor"...

By the way, "a-stomos" means "mouthless" in Ancient Greek.

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.

Also if you look, I bet you find that there are all or mostly out of print. I don't expect Second Darkness to get a reprint for awhile.

I wouldn't rule it out, except for the near future. Although Second Darkness will need more of a rewrite than a simple update and reprint, James Jacobs has gone on record saying that this is something that he would like to see done.

Also, "pocket editions" of the Core Rulebook and Bestiary, it seems, and "Cooperation with Chaosium" on the Strange Aeons adventure path. Intriguing.

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?

Weird, I thought Iron Gods was a perfect homage to Expedition to the Barrier Peaks. I couldn't say about Gamma World, because I never played that, but I don't think Iron gods was ever advertised as such.

Part of the reason Distant Shores exists is that we wanted to do some things outside of the Inner Sea and then see where people were interested in seeing us go in the future. Think of it as a sampler platter. However, it doesn't seem like the book was a huge splash. It's been out for a few months and still doesn't have a review, and most of the comments about the book after its release was about the small amount of mechanics the book contained.

That is actually quite sad, because it's a really good book with a lot of interesting ideas in it. But it seems destined to be remembered as "the book that has the trait that lets you play a Paladin of Asmodeus" even when that requires some serious rule twisting and was probably never intended for this...
