That's a really tough question. It's probably a four-way tie between Alaznist, Karzoug, Sorshen, and Xanderghul. But Zutha's in there too. Not Belimarius becuase that makes her more envious. And not Krune, cause I'm too lazy to get excited about him.

Hi, James.

I've been pronouncing the iconics' names in the following manners. Am I right? If not, how are they pronounced?

Amiri: ah-MIR-ee
Kyra: KEER-a
Sajan: SAY-jhan
Merisiel: meh-RISS-ee-el
Seoni: see-OH-nee

Damiel: DAM-ee-el
Alain: uh-LANE
Imrijka: im-REE-ka
Alahazra: ah-la-HAHZ-rah
Balhazar: BAHL-hah-zar
Feiya: FIE-yah

Seltyiel: SEL-tee-el

(All of the other iconics' names seem pretty straightforward.)

Thanks!

First off... folks in-house say these names differently, so the RIGHT answer is the one that feels right to you.

Another way to reveal the RIGHT answer is, though, to say them like I say them!

You've got them pretty much down. The only one I say differently is Feiya: FEY-yah

Why do people believe Ayn Rand's pseudo-philosophy, especially on the internet?

Because the world is a big place with a lot of different opinions and beliefs.

And whatever your opinion... this kind of question is delving a bit too close to "Why do some people believe in something I don't... don't they realize they're wrong?" And I'd like to avoid those questions here since they're inappropriate and rude and hateful.

1)It looks like Occult Adventures will have info on the Astral plane and the Dimension of Dreams. So will it have any info about the First World, Ethereal plane, and/or Dimension of Time?

2)Now that the playtest has started, what class(or classes) are you most interested in and why?

3)Have you played as any of the OA playtest classes? If so wich one(s)?

4)Did you have any say to what the psychic classes would be? Such as concept, name, powers, etc.

5)How excited are you for the Occult Adventures book?

6)Will you be contributing to this book and not just as a editor and/or director? If so can you say what it will be?

7)What are your top 5 favorite psychic themed movies?

1) Unlikely. No First World stuff since that's not world-neutral. And the dimension of time is a place we're not all that keen to do much more with anywhere. There'll be some ethereal stuff. NONE of it will be Golarion-specific, but it should all be Golarion-applicable.

2) Dunno. I haven't had a chance to look at the playtest yet, and likely won't.

3) Nope.

4) Not much.

5) I'm eager to see if folks like a tight theme to a book rather than a generic "here's a bunch of new classes" book. The new classes are, in fact, the part of the book I am the LEAST interested in.

6) Nope. Likely not even as an editor, and as a creative director so far not so much either. It's very much in Erik Mona's hands in that category.

7) I've never really thought of movies in that category... but the first five contenders that come to mind would be...
Dark City.
The Conjuring.
The Shining.
Scanners.
Prince of Darkness.

Are we ever going to get more info on them, or perhaps another Runelord themed adventure path?

Like how..

Are you aware that in Portuguese feia (FEY-yah) means ugly? I hope the translators catch that before translating that iconic's story.

I'm not done telling the Runelords' story. Not by a long shot.

I am, but that information didn't come to my attention until after we'd posted her name, at which point it was too late to change.

With occult adventures adding psychic magic, which you've indicated is a requirement for working on Vudra based materials for Golarion, which classes from occult adventures do you see as defining the missing rules needed for Vudra products?

I don't know yet. Haven't had the chance to look through the playtest, and until I see the WHOLE book, I'm not gonna be able to make that call, since a lot of the background material beyond class abilities is what's ACTUALLY going to decide what elements will be at play in Vudra.

Now that psychic powers are entering "Pathfinder," can you think of a good "stand in" for (non-open content) Mindflayers?

Intellect devourers have kind of always been the implied stand-in.

They and mind flayers share a LOT of touchstones...

1) Similar name construction
2) Both have brain eating themes
3) Both dwell in the Darklands/Underdark
4) Both are from the early days of the game
5) Both have psychic/psionic powers


With Psychic Magic on the horizon, will we finally learn more about the mysterious continent of Sarusan? Also, Sarusan Iconic?

No.

Sarusan has little to nothing to do with psychic magic. The regions in our campaign setting that have a LOT to do with psychic magic are Vudra, the Darklands, and Castrovel.

What manner of timeframe are we looking at? I'm rather excited now.


Mr. James Jacobs,

How would a Medium from Occult Adventures be received in Rahadoum?
