It did leave me wondering what god would do with a starship, and if the space pope would be the captain or ship's chaplain...

Will there be any expansion on dwarven shamanism as expressed through the background of Shardra Geltl in future Campaign Setting/Player Companions/Adventure Paths?


If Sora and Kirito were locked in a duel, who would win?

I'm currently running Delirium's Tangle online and I have a very hard time finding a proper token for Abysiel Greensummer. Do you have any suggestions?

Would you ever consider changing your name to Smokin' Joe Blue Persuasion?

This is a topic I am really passionate about, and I will be advocating for more dwarves and more shamanism in every product I work on, but detailing these things will need to wait for an appropriate product.

That said, I think something like "Forgotten Faiths of Golarion" would make an awesome Campaign Setting product and I will pitch it (and snatch up the dwarven shamanism at the same time).

Yay another one of my favorite Pathfinder persons has a question and answers thread. Now if only I could think of some good questions for her.

You hear cackling, screaming, magick-y sounds, and general mayhem coming from Cosmo's office. What do you do?

First off, I just wanted to say I'm a big fan of your work. The Harrow Handbook and Occult Mysteries are some of my favorite Pathfinder books thus far, and if the other books in Iron Gods didn't make me into a Numeria fan, your smashing finale with The Divinty Drive sure did! :)

Speaking of Harrow, just one quick question. How do you decide a person's Harrow card if instead of one highest ability score, they have two, such as a paladin with a STR and CHA of 16? Would such a paladin recieve The Paladin or The Empty Throne?

The easiest thing for a unique encounter like Abysiel is to modify an existing mini. You can find inexpensive chain for jewelry work at a bead store or craft store. Use that to bind/decorate an existing creepy elf mini like Satheras from reaper's Bones line. If you want to go the extra mile, make three supporting columns from coat hangers or dowels, with bases made from green stuff or sculpey, and dangle the mini between them on more chain.

How great is Hell's Rebels going to be? Because I am SO PUMPED for this AP like no other, but I don't know if I am suitably pumped or unreasonably pumped.

If both attributes are identical, then a person's Harrow card may depend on their personality, their history, or their family. More rarely, someone might be duel-aspected, but something like that should be a plot hook for GMs to use as set-up for an adventure or strange new twist (and the effects are left deliberately vague so anyone can adapt the idea of twin destinies to their own game), rather than something with specific mechanical effects.

Hell's Rebels has gone awesomely! I turned in the adventure months ago, and art is already flowing it. I've seen the cover and several NPCs myself (and the feeling of seeing characters I've created depicted by professional artists STILL hasn't gotten old).

I think it's going to be a great AP, if I'm allowed to toot my own horn!

Yay! Crystal thread!!!! w00-h00!

1) Is it true that for non-paladins, the best way to determine someone's alignment is to observe what they order on their pizza?

b) Other than Old Lace the warehouse raptor, do you have any pets?

1) This is true. Green pepper = evil, while sun-dried tomatoes are a sure sign of neutral good. Pepperoni is the true neutral of pizza toppings, and consuming it won't impose a negative level on anyone.

2) I do! I have a vicious corgi named Calamity, whose hunger for souls cannot be sated (and who is much cooler than Rob McCreary's dog).

Well, now I feel like someone should photoshop this movie poster to include a warehouse raptor...

I always suspected that about green peppers. So are anchovies chaotic neutral?

Sorry for being obscure (as usual). It'll make better sense if someone in the office can loan you back issues/trade paperbacks of the Runaways comics from Marvel.

I would not foolishly waste energy worrying over these patently false rumors. Do not pass along such clear lies of a Dark Crystal. Do not waste energy attempting to defend yourself from the Dark Crystal. Go about your life. Do not scratch the tattoo.

I love rainfall and thunder and trains in the distance, as well as the strange noises my dog makes when she gets excited and tries to talk.

The noises my dog makes when she gets REALLY excited and tries to yell.

Had things been very different in my life around the end of high school/beginning of college, I think I would've liked to have been a mechanical engineer.

Anything involving yardwork.

Cheese & crackers

"Sorry," would be a good start, maybe follwoed by "You were right. I was wrong."

What's more likely: supposed alien encounters are actual aliens; or just human time travelers?

I would make this a must buy.

Old forsaken gods and myths from forgotten eras.

Apocrypha and other dark things found in ancient tombs that should have stayed buried.

ACAVNA! She died for us!

Ah I don't feel quite as bad now. Though I really like Sharda she has not been around long enough for me to remember her name.

What happens if a paladin likes green peppers on a pizza? Cuz' I do. Bell peppers, specifically, not jalapenos.

Sora is a character from one of the .hack anime series.

Kirito is the main character from the anime Sword Art Online.

I suppose the theme is that they're both playing online games to the death.

CG is chicken. CE is barbeque sauce, among other things, although it's not a 1-for-1 ratio. This is the problem with converting between systems that came out at radically different times.
