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?

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

People motivated by distaste for the other side may result in increased turnout. People with distaste for both may lead to lower turnout (or less likely - increased 3rd party turnout).
People actually excited by their candidate may lead to . . . I'm not sure, I don't anybody actually excited for either candidate. Everybody I know on both sides is voting for the lesser evil.

I'm hoping that we do see more people vote this year, maybe get to 60% turnout. Or maybe our current candidates will make less people come to the polls.

Whether you agree with his opinions or not, Justice Scalia was a brilliant and consistent jurist. I've seen very liberal lawyers who argued in front of him state he was brilliant. He had a dark and wicked sense of humor from what I've seen on TV, and unfortunately, this type of humor is always misconstrued by the other side (of whatever side you're on- sarcasm is never approved of by any who disagree, bipartisan and beyond politics).

Frog God Games makes some excellent materials. There's lots of stuff to recommend, but I'll shout out specifically Nicolas Logue's Razor Coast as a high fantasy Polynesian setting. I had thought pirates had been done, but Razor Coast added some interesting takes, including undead cannibal pygmies and perfectly playable volcano gnomes.

Also, I'm currently reading AAW's Rise of the Drow. Classic (in a good way) "underrealms" adventure.

Are you looking for single adventures (modules), or full adventure paths? Is there a specific trope you're interested in, such as Lovecraft and crashed spaceships, "underrealms", kingdom building, undead demon lords? Sandbox vs more linear adventures? Something with a campaign world, vs something specifically generic to drop into a campaign world?

As for publisher's, it depends on if your looking for character options, adventures, adventure paths, or campaign settings. Some publishers you might want to check out are Kobold Press, Legendary Games, and Rogue Genius Games.

Sorry, the single best line in Babylon 5 goes to Vir: "I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price. I would look up into your lifeless eyes and wave, like this [smiles and waves his fingers at Morden]."

While I understand the business necessity, add me to the list of people sorry to see the web fiction go.

And to James, David, Wendy, and the other contributors, I want to say thank you. I have my favorites, but I don't think there was a single story I didn't like.

In the spirit of the web fiction, I would love to see a short story compilation every year. A place where the authors could give little vignets or explore the stories of more minor characters. Or give new characters an intro before a first novel is published. It's amazing how after so few years the shared universe works so well in Golarion, and I hope it continues in the upcoming fiction.

And add me to the list admiring Wayne Reynold's art.

Liz forgive me, but a comment on cheesecake clothing:
Seoni's clothes make sense for a Varisian, tattoed, high charisma, sorceress raised on a traveling caravan. NPC Codex-295. As a bookworm, psychic, from a family of bureaucrats in Vudra learning her role as a mahatma, cheesecake clothing doesn't work for Rivani.

So I approve of Wayne Reynold's choices on both.

Very nice. I do wish it had something on Rivani's reaction to her abilities and trials. Disgust, awe, simple acceptance? I know what she's been through, but not what makes her tick. Valeros, for example, I understand.

The utopia provides time for several citizens to reach the stage where they want more; more say in what goes on; more control over their own lives. Imagine the harm a chaotic neutral enchanter and/or his bard friend, at 20th level with a few mythic tiers could do by rabble rousing about "free speech" or "taxation without representation" or "tear down this wall".

Or imagine a group of PC's who insist on violating the non-interference policy of the demi-leaders. We are going to stop the slavery in the land next door even if it causes war with Utopia Kingdom.

Depends on how your group plays it. I personally treat summoned (not called) creatures as just a step up from illusions. Summoning an evil outsider is still an evil act, but it is still only a reflection.

1. As of August 14, 2014, new aasimar characters generally cannot be created. You must either grandfather one in (have at least 1 XP for that character) prior to 8/14, or have a boon sheet allowing an aasimer.

2. Yes, if you have a legal aasimer, and the Blood of Angels book with the heritages, you can choose a heritage.
