Of those (names might need some adjustment):

* Primitive/Prehistoric Adventures. (Stone Age and the like, maybe with Dinos)
* 'Antique' Adventures. (Antiquity, duh! ... "Time of Myths and Legends", Ancient: Greece, Rome, Egypt...)
* Steampunk Adventures.
* Future Adventures.
* Space Adventures.
* CyberPunk Adventures.
* Circus Adventures.
* Horror Adventures.
* Monstrous Adventures.
* Noble/Royal Adventures. (we still need rule for Nobility, Royalty and the like.)
* Sky World Adventures. (world in the sky, floating islands, airships, etc.)

Which do you think would fit in Pathfinder (and maybe Golarion)? The names/idea are based on Mythic/Occult Adventure.

We do not eat coworkers. It impinges upon their productivity.

I blame Cosmo for not telling Rysky she's invited to a secret meeting of evil, where our annual wicked plans are discussed.

So this is the meeting where you guys discuss how to make my life miserable. I Knew It!!!

I Blame Cosmo for obviously hosting, organizing, and catering this meeting.

Cosmo has his hands/tentacles/etc in all kinds of meeting, not just the Evil ones.

I blame Cosmo for John Kretzer not realizing that.

Isn't steampunk really overplayed? <_<

Plus would that really need new classes?

Maybe more in the Alternate/Hybrid types (new ones wouldn't hurt either), would/could help with low/no/wild magic settings/adventures (like in Mana Wastes / Alkenstar), and it breaks less versimilitude than High/Futuristic Technologies.

I blame cosmo for the fact that the undead do not eat, or sleep.

I blame Cosmo that I'm not dead yet, so I can't turn into a ghost and haunt people.

Shroud wrote:

We were just discussing this last night. The paths we would like to see are:

1.) Vudra. It's a culture that hasn't been really focused on yet and has a lot of potential for exploration and adventure.

2.) Tien Xia. Jade Regent spent half it's time just getting there and the characters wouldn't have been native to the area. We need a classic Samurai adventure full of honor, revenge and large scale warfare.

4.) Alkenstar. Perhaps a war between Nex & Geb that has Alkenstar PC's trying to save their home from the destruction. Steampunks vs. the Undead.

1.) With Occult Adventures, this could happen.

2.) It's on a lot of people wishlists, so let's hope so...

4.) Not sure why "Nex vs Geb" would be necessary for it (outside of being a backgroud event), but otherwise yeah... Steampunk vs anything.

Also, I blame Cosmo for the current dollar exchange rate being high enough that buying stuff from Paizo is about 20% more expensive than a year ago.

That I agree with... I blame Cosmo for the same thing.

Axial wrote:
Well, considering how Mythic and WoTR were received I don't think Paizo really wants to support Mythic anymore. The general consensus seems to be that it makes mid-to-high level combat encounters trivial, which is already a problem in the game even without Mythic. I just don't think "salvaging Mythic" is that high on the team's priorities right now.

At the same time, Mythic is helpful at lower levels.

I'd like a new race of Celestials. One that looks completely and utterly monstrous, feral and demonic. Good, but not having that reflected in their appearance. You don't have to pretty to be a good guy, right? Maybe, since their not heroic looking, not have them focus on assisting mortals on the material plane, but instead serve as shock troops for battles taking place in the own realms of the fiends, designed to be living, anti-fiend weapons, with battlefield prowess rather than acquiring mortal worshippers as their purpose. Also, we need Agathions based off of non-appealing animals, and a redeemed fiend template.

Considering the ammount of good looking fiends (mainly females), that could be an idea.

Agree with the Agathions thing.

Redeemed Fiend template, Fallen Celestial template, Half-(X) templates for Lawful and Chaotic creatures.

From what they've shown in the playtest there's not much need for new mythic paths to accommodate the Occult classes. A psychic can easily benefit from the Archmage path, kineticist would get great mileage out of Champion, etc. While there could be some fun new mythic feats or perhaps path abilities, it isn't like Dreamscarred Press' Psionics system which requires it's own chassis.

As for future representation, I think Paizo has done a great job supporting all of its classes. We see new material for every class in each supplement (sometimes one class moreso than others) but there has been great representation. I see no reason to think they won't support the Occult Classes going forward.

A new path or two might not be neccessary, but some new path abilities could be useful, as well as mythic feats and maybe mythic spells.

I think some people underestimate the number of people who got a sheltered/clostered life, got overprotected, and the like; those tend to be more fragile.

I have two possible characters I want to try out:

- Halfling Kata Master 12/Kensai Magus 4/Paladin 4

Halflings are small, so they are hard to hit. This resolves around adding three stats to AC, with some smiting in for good measure.

You do know that most AP don't reach level 20, right?

Before you settle on that name, I will post this. (personally, I have nothing against the name, but some might do, or just ask weird questions.)

Talking about 1990's kids is just mean

What context, talking about kids from the 1990's or "kids" talking about the 1990's?

I was only 6 in 1990.

Both! People like me and Haladir (and I think Gorbacz) like to play the "cranky old man" card whenever possible. One of these days I need to plant onions so I can yell at the kids in my front yard to get out of 'em.

...or at least put up an "onions" sign...

...but I'm totally off topic, and Sarah Marie will beat me, so off I run...

I was born in 1980, it always amuse me when the "1990's +" kids don't believe in the existence of a pre-Internet era.

I blame Cosmo for Set's naiveté.

It's unlikely, but what would be amazing is if Paizo did a sort of about face on how they normally do books like this, and basically ignore the classes that are already "wild" and instead focus on making other classes more playable in a "wild" setting.

+1, I hope they do this to some degree... and I hope not all the Rogue archetypes give up Trapfinding/Trapsense...

- Lovecraftian AP. it has a lot of potential, especially if the AP doesn't asume the PCs to be the same Normal Boring Humanoids like APs tend to do.

Well assuming the description isn't in error we have the five from Major_blackhart's list locked in plus 5 more. Syrinx are fairly unique to Golarion but I'd guess if they are included at all they will just be folded into the Strix entry. Based on previous adventures set in the Inner Sea I'll try to take a few guesses though. These are all mainly based on races prevalence in official Paizo content and the assumption that there will be no overlap between the two monster codexes. It also isn't an exact list of what will be in the book just six monster i think are likely.

1) Mite
2) Hag
3) Aboleth
4) Lamia
5) Caulborn
6) Denizen of Leng

There are enough Hags for their own Monster Codex/Codices, and as a byproduct, for a Blood of Hags player companion.

Since it might be a bit too much for just the regular Campaign Setting + Player Companion combo.

And it would avoid the headaches associated with them being spread over multiple Monster Codices.

Fluff and crunch, how to play them, how to make them... Feats, Traits, Archetypes, Items, etc.

I blame Cosmo for Therianthropes/Theriomorph all being called Lycanthropes in DnD and Pathfinder.

I blame Cosmo there isn't a Codex (or codex like book) about them.

How about a book on marriages and marriage customs that is generalized and includes a lot of detail and advice for general marriage customs, as well as by-species examples?

Then do one for Golarion with by-nation and by-species specifics.

I can imagine a goblin wedding would involve a lot of fire!

and dead puppies, and dead ponies, and more fire, "NO WRITTING!", and even Moar FIRE!

Ultimate Villainy: a book that essentially combines aspects from the Book of Vile Darkness (well, the tolerable ones at least), Examplars of Evils and Elder Evils.

Basically, how to make a good viallin with each and every class in the entire game? Bonus points if they can make 5 variations of each: a Lawful villain, a Good villain, a Neutral villain, a Chaotic villain and an Evil villain (shouldn't be that hard, but still...)

DMs can have troubles making villains out of Good-aligned characters, when you can "simply" have them fight due to different ways of thinking. For instance, the leader of a revolution might be CG, but opposing either a LG lord or the PCs who are trying to overthrow a LE lord, but not in the same way as the CG leader. Another example: a paladin can be a villain, but again, it's not THAT easy to make it so when 99% of your party is Good-aligned.

I want some guidelines on how to make memorable, believable and viable villains out of every class and if possible, every alignment, in addition of adding rules about stuff that villains do to others.

So yeah, have Paizo make a 300-something book how to make great villains.

I've long felt a villain book would be great; feats, spells, traits, items and archetypes to make memorable villains; example henchmen and lairs; GM advice on designing and running BBEGs.

Evil Villains aren't too hard, Good 'Villains' (or even allies) is where almost everyone fails.

Sounds like people are saying this book doesn't have as much "crunch" material as it should?
"Should" and "can fit into page count" are often two separate things—we could (and do) print several hundred page long hardcover books filled to the brim with crunch, and it's still not enough for some folks. Whether or not the amount of mechanics provided in Blood of Elements is to your liking is entirely up to you. But to date, we have not done any extensive lore regarding the genie-kin races in the Pathfinder setting (and what we did do was five or so years ago when we were still publishing 3.5 material), something that this book does take into account.

That might be more tied to having 5 races in a single Player Companion.
