Happy new year

How does day and night physically function on the outer planes, at least the ones that have such cycles? (Elysium I know for sure) is there an actual sun or do the skies themselves just dim and illuminate on their own with no source?


Can a simulacrum reproduce?


Do dragons in Pathfinder have opposable thumbs? Could a dragon wield an appropriately sized weapon if so?


Do dragons eat gold, gems, or other treasures? If not, what do dragons typically eat? Especially the bigger ones.


Is having a soul a requirement for *gaining* class levels?

I was in a discussion about whether or not intelligent/awakened constructs can gain class levels, for example mannequin robots in iron gods have levels. But the argument against it was they were built with levels and can't level up beyond creation. I don't know if pf 2 changed anything about monsters with classes however so this is mainly regarding 1e.


Have any sapphire oozes that got lost on the material plane joined the Pathfinder Society?


Are true dragons immortal? If not how old do they live to? I assumed they were immortal because of how old they can get and nothing mentions them dying of old age but then I noticed the stats of Time Dragon mention them specifically being immortal.

Does this mean Mengkare will die eventually?


What are marriages between elves and humans like? Do they ever get married or are half-elves always born out of wedlock?


Would a fire elemental die if forced underwater? Say a room filling with water and they can't get out for example. I ask because nothing actually says they're harmed by water but they also cannot enter water.


Do androffans have any key physical features that offset them from golarion humans? Like how Azlanti have purple eyes.


I have a question regarding the end of Iron Gods since I just finished running that campaign.

Massive Iron Gods Spoilers:
The AI Casandalee rose to godhood and using the customisation rules given, they gave her the Neutral Good alignment. With some help of the party she got her divine realm to sit in Nirvana because of this, but I was wondering.

Would this mean she classifies as an Empyreal Lord? If not, what should her title be other than just Demigod Casandalee?


On the topic of Empyreal Lords, what are worshippers of Black Butterfly generally like? And with how hidden and obscure Black Butterfly is even among the lesser known gods, how would one even find out about her to worship?


With the new Steam-Powered Clockwork template (one of my favourites, especially for its low cost) in the Construct Handbook, that means steam powered machinery exists on Golarion. How common on Golarion is steam power and where would it be most common other than Alkenstar?

What are the "alternate methods that aren't "stealth evil" soul-enslavement methods for golem construction" in the lore?

Getting freely given, non-coerced permission from a creature to use its soul after death for construction.
So it's impossible to make a golem without an elemental spirit?
I'd say no; that's kinda the theme of what makes a golem. Using an elemental spirit to animate a thing made out of "elements" like iron or clay or wood or whatever.

What kind of Elemental would an Alchemical Golem be animated by then?

Does the book describe alternate ways to build constructs? Like, I remember posters long time ago wondering if using elemental spirits in golem is technically slavery and if there is alternate way to build golems
It will discuss that element of golem building and provide alternate methods that aren't "stealth evil" soul-enslavement methods for golem construction, yes.

I don't see this mentioned though I might've glanced over it. Can someone point me to the page where non "stealth evil" soul-enslavement methods for golem constructs is written?


I started reading the new Sandpoint book and I noticed the sign "Please see yourself as we see you." I wasn't sure what this meant so I looked it up, but what I found didn't give much help. Then I looked in this thread and saw it was mentioned a few times that the sign is originally from Point Arena... But I still don't know what it means. I guess it's more of a philosophical question but, what does the sign mean exactly?

None come to mind. There are other examples in-world of characters who aren't gods pretending to be gods. See Razmir for the most significant example.

None come to mind; there are elements of deities in Iron Gods but they CAN grant spells, so that's not the same thing.

How convenient, this is actually a side quest for the Iron Gods campaign I'm running. Since none come to mind, any ideas you can give me for this Dragon?

Aye, Razmir came to mind as well but he's *way* more accomplished considering he has a large amount of followers and has actually taught people to cast fake divine magic (razmiran priest and false focus for examples), while this is just a dragon making giants gather gems for him or something. Who are the other examples of lesser false gods?


It mentions in the Numerian Spine Dragon bestiary entry (Inner Sea World Guide) this line.

"As with many true dragons, spine dragons are particularly vain and enjoy being groveled to. It’s not uncommon for them to assume the role of god for ignorant tribes of giants"

I want to run an encounter with a Spine Dragon and I was wondering if you knew any other examples in pathfinder of a dragon assuming the role of a god so I can uh, "steal" some inspiration? If not, any advice?

We'll be updating the timeline to 4719 AR and that will include canonical "ends" for all the Adventure Paths, which will for the most part assume the PCs were successful since I do NOT want and am NOT comfortable hard-coding PC failures into the game's setting.

I think it'd be interesting to see how screwed the world would be if ALL of them are PC failures... though I assume that many early APs being failures would likely prevent later ones from happening in the first place other than some that are way out there, like Jade Regent.


What's the Ioun Kineticist like?

What's the line between Commiting Murder (the highest restricted tenant) and smiting evil foes?


Construct Rider Alchemist, I just wish there was a way to repair constructs easier.


I remember reading somewhere that the Paizo logo is supposed to be a golem, is this true? If yes, what kind of golem is a Paizo Golem? If no, what is it then?


What's your favourite Empyreal Lord? Mine's Black Butterfly which makes me glad there's Dominion of the Black stuff coming soon.

With pathfinder 2e golarion acting as if every previous AP was a PC victory, does that mean...

Iron Gods Spoiler:
Casandalee is a deity in 2e?
