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.

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.

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...

The blessings deck is indeed mainly a countdown. Occasionally, certain cards care what card is the top card of the blessings deck discard pile, such as Blessing of the Gods, or lycanthrope monsters. However, you never play the cards from the blessings deck, or acquire them.

When a card lists several skills in the check to acquire, you need to make one of these checks, and you can choose which one you try. You can only try one of them, though. If you do not have a skill, you can still try a check, but you use a d4 then.

I don't think the "particularly epic Adventure Path" James is talking about is one that has already been published. The "for nearly a decade" points to the very beginnings of Paizo's Golarion products, so there may even be some hints or adventure hooks placed first in an early product such as perhaps the Gazetteer or the original Campaign Setting hardcover. Interestingly "maybe—it’ll take players to a higher level than ever before" which means beyond Level 20 - Wrath of the Righteous already goes there. So he'll probably need some new rules created before it comes to that ("still formulating my master plan on exactly how to get this done"). That is why "It’ll be a few more years until it sees print".

However, I don't think that working on that special adventure path is what is drawing James away from the AP line at this time. So, since I don't think he'll be sitting in his office twiddling his thumbs and playing video games, what is he working on now? It doesn't seem to be an adventure path, and James is not one of the guys to work on rulebooks. He's still the Creative Director, so maybe his attention is needed for some special Campaign Setting product similar in scope to the Inner Sea Work Guide?

Or maybe it is something else entirely. Maybe he got the go-ahead to finally put Unspeakable Futures into print. Now that would be something. :)

You should also be counting Eberron books and outliers like Ghostwalk, for example.

Furthermore, Wizards of the Coast published D&D Third Edition material from 2000 to 2008, for a period of 8 years. If you include the Third Edition material by Paizo, their material was published from 2007 to 2016, a period of almost 9 years, so nothing out of the ordinary.

You can actually download the file. If you go to your library on the Audible site, there is a black "DOWNLOAD" button. However, the file comes in one of several Audible proprietary formats. You can select the exact format you want on that page.

The best way to listen might be the Audible smartphone apps, though. They offer several useful features for listening to audiobooks.

Wonder why this isn't coming out for Hell's Veangence.

Seems like it would be the perfect supplement to those aspiring Hellknights.

Because there is more to The Hellknights than being a jack booted thug for the Cheliax Empire.

Also it is coming out in time for Hell's Vengeance...in that people should not start running a AP till it is all out anyway.

There's PLEEEEEENTY of time for this to still be relevant to the end of the Hell's Vengeance Adventure Path—particularly the issue that releases in the same month.

This might have been slated for earlier, but we bumped it back because I needed to finish volume one of this AP and can only write these things so fast, YOU. JACKALS.

I'm also quite sure that the majority of players do not play adventure paths as they are coming out. So, saying that this products "comes out too late" seems a little silly.

Also the dice category of you weapons improves, so you deal 2d6 damage with a longsword or 3d6 with a greatsword, for example.

Rynjin summed my feelings on this up pretty well. Calling errata "FAQ" feels disingenuous.

The FAQ is not errata, and it doesn't claim to be.

Here and there they say something to effect of "rule A is not what we want it to be after all, we would rather like it to be B". This is usually joned with "This change will be reflected in the next errata." Note the next errata – this clearly indicates that the FAQ itself is not the errata, just the indication of an upcoming errata that will usually be released along with the next printing. It is a declaration of intent, so you know what will be coming.

What you do in the meantime is up to you. Well actually, it is up to you even after that, of course, but you know what I mean.

The one thing I've long been wanting to do is a space fantasy campaign based on Green Ronin's Freeport Trilogy, by transfiguring the city into a space station. Maybe even with a little Babylon 5 DNA spliced in. I might actually get the chance when my reign of Winter campaign finishes off next year. The Technology Guide and Ultimate Psionics might be good fits, too.

Does anyone know some good space station maps?

I just noticed a change to the spell make whole that was introduced with the 5th printing of the Core Rulebook. The spell was changed as follows:

Core Rulebook, 4th printing wrote:
This spell functions as mending, except that it repairs 1d6 points of damage per level when cast on a construct creature (maximum 5d6).
Core Rulebook, 5th printing wrote:
This spell functions as mending, except that it repairs 1d6 points of damage per level when cast on an object or construct creature (maximum 5d6).

I missed this change as, at the table, I usually use my 4th printing book, and this change was not listed in any of the errata documents that highlight the changes from one printing to the next.

This makes make whole somewhat more useful to repair objects too heavy for mending. Pre-errata it would only repair 1d4 hp per casting, now up to 5d6. Of course, for lighter objects, you can repair any amount of damage by casting mending over and over again.

Anyway, interesting. Who knows what else I've missed so far...

If your players are "explicitly anti tech," this is definitely the wrong adventure path, as tech, robots and artificial intelligences are its backbone and theme. If you try to "take the tech out", there will not really be anything left.
