With Halflings of Golarion headed off to the printer, now seems like the perfect time to show off Alex Aparin’s awesome cover!

Harpies have night gowns ?!

Who knew ?

Great art though ! In contention for Lem's best 'action scene' so far.

So Lem is like a rock star? All the ladies screaming for him as he plays?

It just dawned on me that we haven't actually seen anyone enjoy Lem's playing. They're either falling over in pain or throwing up. :D

Of course he is !

I've thrown my underwear at him !
And got my STR bonus x 1.5 added to damage to boot.

Let's see here... harpies screaming in pain... people vomiting in the APG... Does Lem actually know any GOOD music, or is it just painfully bad tunes that make out run out of the room screaming?

Short, shaggy hair, terrible music. Is Lem Justin Bieber?

Silver Crusade

All that said, this is a rocking piece of art here. :D

Lem's killin' a bunch of angels! Nooooo!!!

Oh. They're just harpies. Rock on, little dude!

That's quite the hair on his little feet. More like porcupine quills, really... Some sort of chaos mutation?


That's awesome.

Poor harpies.

Hey, you don't know why they were there.

Lem looks like a kid from behind. And that place looked remote and dangerous. They might have been hurrying in to make sure he was safe, and to return him to his home later on.

If Lem were a paladin, I'd have him fall on the sp is shot

Lem's flute's back to being straight again.

Anyone else noticed how it's been bent like a pretzel over the course of 5 APs?

will it be of him dieing a brutal horrible death or of the elf kicking him in his family jewels??

wanted to look at this one, the last one was ORCs, looked at it finally and didn't want it.

I'm pretty sure dreamworks has a copyright on that facial expression for all their animated movies:P


Does anybody else hear Jethro Tull?

Clearly that's a unique halfling instrument of destruction - the Vuvuzela.

Okay, so Elves vs Goblinoids... then Dwarves vs Giants... Gnomes vs Kobolds... Does this mean Harpies and Halflings are natural enemies in the wild?


I notice the little hook there on the end, so I am guessing it is a Dire Flute?

Silver Crusade

Definitely excited about this book. Have had a halfling character build on hold because of this book's release.

It's a man-flute. It's always all perky and straight when he's got it pressed against his lips...

Yes! It's like he's always jamming out Beggar's Farm on that thing every time I see him playing it. Just made of halfling awesomeness.

Love the fuzzy feet, good on ye!

Obviously the protagonist of the classic story "The Man Who Sold Rope to the Gnoles" was previously "The Man Who Sold Negligees to the Harpies."

As for what Lem is playing, my guess is "Prelude to a Faun" and it's reminding the harpies of an unhappy past relationship.

Ian Anderson as a fantasy character!!! I love it!!
