In PF 1st ed. I never used nor liked the random roll for minor, medium, and major available magic items in settlement stat blocks. GMG 204-209. Hopefully this new "commonality" system can replace much of that, as well as applying to more than spells. Perhaps a percentage based on rarity and settlement size.

Thanks Todd.

I'm greatly looking forward to this one. Probably more than any hardcover since the APG. It's several years overdue.

Is it going to be stat lite as it will be the last (non-playtest) hardcover until the PF2 Core Rulebook comes out?

The Atonement spell, treating the intelligent sword as a creature.

"On Golarion, “atheism” usually denotes the belief that those beings commonly called “gods” are not worthy of the authority and reverence bestowed upon them by others. Atheists rarely doubt the existence of deities, and generally acknowledge that deities are very powerful beings, but deem them no more than that. Instead of gods, they tend to revere ideals such as goodness or freedom, philosophies such as the Prophecies of Kalistrade or diabolism, or nothing in particular. Though some scholars argue that the term “atheist” is incorrectly applied to these people—preferring terms such as “dystheists” or “misotheists”—such distinctions are lost on a generally religious society, and most accept the more common term." Faiths & Philosophies, p. 6.

The christian doctrine of "immaculate conception" does not refer to a "virgin birth" which is coververed under the doctrine of "Incarnation". A "spontaneous pregnancy" is more accurate.

Intelligence is knowing Scotch is a subset of whiskey drinks. Charisma is not mentioning it on a Scotch thread unless the less knowledgeable ask. Wisdom is trying a decadent Glenmorangie Signet after a wonderful steak dinner, with a simple sigh of appreciation, while your intelligent buddy drinks Old Crow, since they're both whiskeys.

Great, and now I'm thinking about a "Ultimate XXX" book, i.e. a Pathfinder version of the Book of Erotic Fantasy.

Hopefully there will be an archetype to help survive a grapple with a succubus.

On the off chance you're unaware, the Dragon's Demand module goes from level 1 to 6 and has a draconic theme, which may be (at least part) of what you're looking for.

I think the real question is how many mithrals you have to skin to get a full set of armor.

I doubt it would take more than one of these these.

Deities of travel, community, and knowledge work well. Abadar, Cayden, Irori, Desna, and Erastil are good choices. Iomedae and Sarenrae are fairly standard as well.

The good domain is reasonably handy. And the protection domain improves all of the cleric's saves.

Generally, positive channeling for healing is better (more useful) than negaive channeling in PFS.

The Bing translator from Microsoft includes Klingon, which in my mind is perfect for orcs.

Closest I can think of is the Varisian Tattoo feat from the Inner Sea World Guide-289, and the associated Tattooed Sorcerer archetype from Inner Sea Magic-40, which give a spell like ability from a tattoo. The spell-scar magus arcana gives what are basically scrolls inked into your skin. Blood of the Moon-21.

Arcane Anthology has a few paragraphs on what spellbooks look like, but they're still books (more or less). Same for Ultimate Magic.

A couple of archetypes give a wizard a familiar for spells (like a witch, instead of a spellbook), specifically the Familiar Adapt from theFamiliar Folio-8, and the Spirit Whisperer from the Advaced Class Guide-133.

There are several witch archetypes that alter her familiar, the closest to what you talking about is the Bonded Witch, limited to half-elves storing spells in a bonded item instead of a familiar. Advanced Race Guide-43.

This is the first time I'm looking forward to the sixth volume of monsters for a game system.

Most whites voted for a racist.

Whites, males, and Christians are all declining portions of the voting population. By supporting a candidate so openly hostile to other groups, they have driven those growing portions of the electorate even further from the GOP.

Every Republican going back to at least Nixon has been called a racist, misogynistic, bigot. Every four years it's said the Republicans will never win again because the youth are pro-Democrat and the country just needs a few more old people to die off, or a few more immigrants, ect. (And every Democrat is a socialist, and once peple see how bad it is when Americans start standing in ration lines the Democratic party is over.)

But this time it's different! *Sigh*

The Democatic bench is hurt to a nearly 100 year low, but hardly gone. They have every chance of winning the presidency in 2020 with a likable candidate, who has a personality, isn't under investigation for careless handling of classified material, and doesn't take the month of August off to recharge (exasperated by losing a week in September to pneumonia).

Conversely, as young people try to buy houses, have children, get jobs and pay taxes, and as immigrants see themselves as American first, the Republicans are going to have plenty of votes for decades to come.

Guide to Absalom is all right. Too few pages to do the City at the Center of the World justice. I'd love something like the Ptolus applied to Absalom.

Just when I thought it was safe to read the Paizo forums, I find the dead bromancers have been necromanced into a hedious parody of life.

I do think a 200+ page Island of Kortos/City of Absalom book would be useful.

Capaldi never really grow on me. Less his fault than the writing, which has gone down hill in recent years.

So let the speculation begin.

For me, Paizo's homepage almost never loads on Android Chrome. It does load on Android Firefox and Android Doolphin.

I've never played 5th ed. But if I'm understanding the above correctly, Pathfinder is like Google's Android (more options, more fiddly, base is less user friendly but you can do a lot more with it) versus D&D 5th like Apple IOS (less operating options, more user friendly). Is that an apt analogy?

To answer the OP, I'm never buying an RPG again which doesn't have a pdf (or equivalent) option.

Neliahad no argument there Instead she pointed past him, toward the palace. "What's that?" she asked. "That line in the sky."

"The River of Souls," he answered.
She made an incredulous noise, and Salim liked at her with a raised eyebrow.

Saw Dr Strange. Some random thoughts.

1. Missed the verbal spells. Some Crimson Bands of Cyttorak would have been appreciated.

2. The car accident was fantastic.

3. I missed the old Asian Ancient one.

4. Chiwetel Ejiofor was great as Mordo.

5. The reviews were right, it's worth watching in 3D.

6. Fantastic special effects.

If they had bothered to look.

I can't think of a single japanese actress who is well known enough to have draw for American audiences.

It appears to be a money thing. Big studios don't want to risk money on unknowns (to an American audience). Many, many movies don't get made the way the fans might want them to because of business concerns,

Would you rather have Scarlett J or no big budget Hollywood movie? Studios aren't going to risk big money ($100 million plus production and advertising -my guess) on unknowns.

Vote with your wallet. Make sure you don't watch it. Green is the only color the big studios care about.

I just hope we do not have a repeat of this.

Edit - IMHO it should be required reading. ~sighs~ Time to pull it out and reread it.

I've also read Shirer's book, cover to cover. All 1486 pages, not counting the index. The paper is browning but I still have my copy. If anyone truly believes some of what is being said by the irresponsible talking heads I suggest you read it. Even better, visit a Holocaust museum. There's one about two blocks from my office - it has a display in the lobby showing true evil done to populations over the last centry.

Our political system is by its nature designed to prevent the dictatorship some people (on the news) are suggesting. As the original poster said, to the Republic.

Also, I personally find calling any person a Nazi or a Hitler as offensive as using the n-bomb. Many adults my age and older feel that way. Unless you're actually talking about someone who comitted crimes against humanity, please stop.

Regarding the electoral system. I never believed in its fairness or efficacy until the 2000 election. The raw politics of fighting over every single vote ballet, with political lackeys arguing over obvious stray marks or the infamous hanging chads was crazy. Imagine arguing over every vote ballet in every state. The electoral system by design limits this craziness.

Podesta has announced that Clinton would not be speaking tonight. I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume she just didn't expect to lose, and so didn't have anything prepared. As opposed to being mentally/physically/emotionally unable to speak, or simply being petty.

In other news, apparently America has crashed Canada's immigration website.

Edit: The Canada website crash during the election is a true story.

Yeah. I've followed the whole 538- Trump gas a 35% chance of winning vs Slate's Trump has a 2% chance of winning and 538 is wrong.

Even if Clinton pulls out the win, Slate's stat department has egg on its face.

It truly depends on what the new emails say. If there is ubdisputable criminal evidence Secretary Clinton broke the law, especially pay to play of millions of dollars, I think Comey is safe. If there is not undisputable criminal evidence, he's toast.

No, as has been said before a few pages back, the investigation wasn't re-opened; the FBI had not closed the "Clinton emails" investigation. (FYI, the 9/11 investigation isn't closed either, and they only recently closed the D.B. Cooper case. Yes, really.)

"Reopen" is an apprporiate general term for what happened, and is one every news organization is using. "Reactivated" is probably more accurate, but I haven't heard it used even once.

EnWorld links to a ICv2 announcement of an Adventurer's Guide. It sounds like a campaign hardcover, but the picture has the RPG line logo.

1. Which line is it in? Is it an Adventure Path like the ACG with so much material they forgot the adventure?

2. Will we get an announcement on the Paizo boards/site soon?

3. Was this a secret project?
