I mean, if you think the only kind of hedonism the goddess of gluttony might be associated with is a "sex thing", that's kind of something you brought to the table with you.

No doubt Urgathoa's got some sex things going on, but really it's the forbidden hungers generally pervasive among most kinds of undead which form the basis of her theming. She loved all the pleasures of life, not just the horny ones.

All I can say it that is the angle that has seemd most prominent in what I've RETAINED after having read, but that, really, the whole hedonism aspect is ITSELF rather problematic for the connotations the cncept presents.

(If you want to take a stance I am so fracking fed-up with sex and all its aspects being waved around throughout human culture and I am sick to the back teeth of it being everywhere; that would be probably fair, as on a bad day, I wouldn't find it at all concerning it some outside horror waved the entire concept of sexual reproduction and all its associated fallout away entirely. (I say "bad" day, like that's not a normal day; there are no good days, anymore.)

But, leaving that aside, even just taking the feasts et al at face value, Undead, again, are beyond having to NEED to deal with food (except for ghouls and vampires, basically) and I think it's just not an idea that I think fits well with the vast majority of undead.

But again, this discussion of it it arguably more thought than I previously gave it; which perhaps is more damning itself that Urugotha who should *side glance at avatar* have been a fairly easy sell to me, is just not interesting to me at best, and off-putting to me at worst.

I'll admit I find your stance interesting, especially since I personally consider Urgathoa to be the most interesting undead god I've really seen in TTRPGs. I can understand why becoming a Lich doesn't really fit with the majority of what she's about, but I love the idea that the ur-Undead creature, the first divine Undead and inadvertent progenitor of the grand majority of Undead, didn't come back from death out of some nihilism or desire to turn everything Undead and brood over a dead universe.

No, she's someone who adored living and living in excess so much she refused to let death be the end of her party days. She's someone who pushes you to live life to the fullest and then claw your way back afterwards and keep going. Consumption to the point of vomiting is something she preaches, as is spreading disease, cannibalism, sex is a part of it but definitely not a major part.

Heck, her holy book is also a cannibalistic cookbook! That's just the kind of goddess she is.

Also, the fact she's so opposite what other undead and evil death deities are typically like, and yet is way too powerful for any of them to really challenge or usurp her, adds to her character. She's a bit basic true, she has no long term goals or long standing plans, has no aspirations to destroy Pharasma or anything, but really that's nice and refreshing; she came back to have a good time and that's all the motivation she needed to break reality asunder.

EDIT: I'll say she's often described as a hedonist, but really she's a libertine and that what makes her brand of seeking experiences particularly heinous.

BTW...Does anyone have any theories on how Ragathiel views the celestial being that was formerly known as the Hand of the Inheritor (HotI)?

Do you think he was upset that the HotI in any way "betrayed" him by agreeing to become the Herald of Iomedae?

Now that Queen Galfrey is Iomedae's new herald, do you think Ragathiel would take the HotI back as a servant or is the celestial being formerly known as the HotI now a "free agent" able to serve any demigod or god who would have him?

Nah, if I recall correctly the Hand asked for permission to take his leave from Ragathiel's host to serve Iomedae. Nothing cloak and dagger about the Hand leaving his service.

A fighter is able to fight a demon, but since real life Sun Tzu commanded armies and not individuals then the commander shouldn't either?

False equivalence, you're not commanding armies you're supporting your party, and Commander isn't going to be made to be a lazy dude who orders armies about, this is a team game so the class has to be more than a benchwarmer who only interacts by puppeting allies and thats it.

I love both of these from my initial skim over, I'm wondering though if Drilled Reflexes and Practiced Reflexes should be built in to the class features and not be feats? Given the class shines by giving allies extra reactions to use their tactics, I'll admit these two feats feel more like feat taxes than actual choices.

Especially Practiced Reflexes; at level 18 you can either choose an action that might disable one enemy under specific circumstances, or take the feat that gives virtually all your party an extra reaction to use your Tactics.

EDIT: Okay I do get it it's not wanting a favourite/one that person likes to be on the chopping block, but it's not going to be as interesting a story if they go for a god that will make zero impact with their death.

Zimmer I think you're getting hung up on different definitions of state. Paizo is a United States based company, and in the US the term state generally refers to one of fifty regional governing bodies that are part of a larger national governing body. Paizo doesn't like to use state to refer to a nation, as in their general audience it would imply that it was part of a larger nation and not a nation on it's own.

I did in fact read Mr. Jacobs's post. And I came away not believing what it said. Because it he did in fact conceptualize "state" as being "self-governing federal or confederal subdivision," he could have said as much when asked "is Vyre independent [sovereign, with bespoke foreign and fiscal policies] or merely autonomous [self-governing]" within a federation or confederation. Because autonomous federal subdivision describes American states well enough.

Instead the comparison we got was to Magnimar and Korvosa, which are obviously independent and sovereign in themselves (and in pretty flagrant competition) rather than part of a confederation or federation to which sovereign powers are delegated.

And @VerBeeker, because apparently pressing the issue is productive of revelations like Vyre still being a part of Cheliax, which deprives Ravounel of "its" biggest city as well as of control of the shipping lanes out of Kintargo.

I mean, Vyre is in name only a part of Cheliax. Cheliax itself lets Vyre get away with basically being its own entity because it's a pleasure city for nobility, training ground for hellknights, etc. Vyre is not going to harm Ravounel on behalf of Cheliax and Cheliax wouldn't risk losing Vyre just to punish Ravounel, the losses would outweigh their gains. Admittedly, I'm surprised that JJ said Vyre is part of Cheliax, considering how Ravounel's borders work, but honestly it's not like Vyre changes any given its essentially free city status.

It also makes some sense from a meta-narrative perspective, as well. Slight spoilers, sorry, but Abomination Vaults is very likely Paizo's most popular PF2E Adventure Path, popular enough to be translated into 5E, and Nhimbaleth is a pivotal figure in that story.

I always figured Irori was safe, not because he's boring or anything, but because "the death of Irori" is a hard thing to loop like "ordinary people" and "low-level PCs" into.

Since if this prophecy were to come true, the hole in the universe isn't necessarily something that PCs are more equipped to handle than actual gods.

Still, part of the prophecy that seems odd to me is that I would guess that Pharasma would take it onto herself to patch the hole Irori bore in the fabric of reality since "maintain the universe" is kind of her job.

Or The Monad would be trying to do the same thing. Then again, since it's the Condition of All, it might also be one of the first things to get ripped apart in the growing void, which seems really bad for the rest of the cosmos.

Incidentally, is anybody else starting to get Nhimbaleth vibes from some of these prophecies? She is a goddess of void and consumption, and while fear isn't exactly part of her portfolio (I thought she had the Nightmare domain, but not so) she does focus greatly on despair and the futility of one's death. Despair and futility fit with several of the deities' prophecies, such as CC, Pharasma, Asmodeus to an extent, and ZK; hunger and consumption with Desna Erastil, as well as Asmodeus and Irori in a sense; and death, oblivion, and emptiness work with Irori, Nethys, and Desna's stories. There's also Urgathoa's story, which takes that odd turn of making undead become more numerous rather than less plentiful, which really starts to make sense when you consider the prophecy from Nhimbaleth's perspective. She loves devouring ghosts and other undead.

...Damn I had a thought like that.

What's your theory, Benjamin?

Generally noticing a pattern, the first five prophecies were from rows 3, 4, 2, 5, 1. So far we've had gods for rows 3, 4 and 2. The gods on the same row have not only been adjacent to each other but have been able to connect to the row adjacent to it through the "safe" gods (e.g. Desna allows row 2 to connect to row 3 via Nethys). If this pattern is accurate, the next two would be Lamashtu and Iomedae. I wouldn't mind being wrong, and I know it sounds insane, but so far it's working out.

I ship Moloch and Szuriel, because the former has been sending messengers to her and seems to be in some form of communication, and in my head I have the image of Moloch writing incredibly formal messages while trying to be flirtatious, meanwhile Dispater, the only Archdevil in a happy marriage, helps him out with his awkward attempts at courtship.

Honestly my money's on it being Desna who gets a prophecy, we got a good look at what could happen in the material if Shelyn lost influence already so I'm marking her as safe also.

Sarenrae continues to be in a shaky position, but I know who'll be my no.1 if she gets a Prophecy.

Looks like Zon-Kuthon remains to suffer another day. Interesting, seems like there's a pattern emerging in which god gets a prophecy. In any case, ZK was a popular choice and yet he remains.

Here's an interesting detail: it's the same author across all of these prophecies. Whether that changes or not, not sure, but it's definitely something worth noting.

And that’s the thing with pulling real-world folklore into established Campaign Settings. My understanding was that Golarion’s elves are aliens from Castrovel, and not tied to the fey/fae or the First World.

And that is certainly one of the established things about the setting, which complicates things, because the banshee comes from a body of traditional lore where elves and sidhe are basically synonymous. It means you can't have the banshee be both in this setting. Seems odd, but workable. Not having the banshee be EITHER just makes me wonder what about it is supposed to be a banshee.

Do not act as if the commonalities between Norse and Celtic culture originates with me. There are countless books on the subject. If you're more of a casual enjoyer of mythology, folklore, and history, the mutual influence of Norse and Celtic cultures is a subject that frequently comes up on several YouTube channels. My favorite folklore channel is The Fortress of Lugh, and while the Norse influence doesn't come up in every video, it has been mentioned several times in the ones I've watched. Yes, a lot of it has been lost to time and Christianization. No, not enough has been lost that we...

First of all, no, obviously OGL doesn't mean WotC reserves folklore, that's not what anyone is saying. The OGL represents a certain expression of the folklore that is WotCs idea/mechanics, the way they did the Banshee is theirs.

And for the record, you don't translate sidhe to elf, they're comparable entities involved but sidhe is the word for the mounds and hills the Aos Si (the actual similar folks) live under. End of the day it is a conflation, and a DnD/WotC original one.

Okay so here we go. It's a 11-20 AP that goes like this:

Beneath the Faceless City (11-14)
A party of experienced Pathfinder Agents are called to investigate a Society Observatory that has failed to report in for a week, only to discover a group of rogue Mordant Spire Elves dismantling the place. They soon uncover the existence of the Faceless City, an Azlanti penal colony on Somal that has been in contact with the Observatory and has apparently uncovered something that resembles the Starstone within the caverns below. Traversing up to the moon, they find their way to the colony and have to fight their way into the caverns, since the only way down has been taken over by demonic remnants from the Moonscar. Below the surface of Somal, they uncover a Xiomorn laboratory and its owner, who has become obsessed with the Moonstone, a fragment of the same meteor that birthed the Starstone.

Star Above the Cerulean Sea (15-17)
The Agents discover that the Moonstone contains the essence of the dead goddess Acavna, and are confronted by a Star Archon who reveals that a nascent godling, Nuruu'gal, has become aware of and obsessed with it. The stone cannot be destroyed or its power claimed by another, not without help; the Archon brings the Agents to Heaven's Shore, so that the Agents can convince the celestial council there to grant them access to the safest passage to their true goal; Basrakal, home of Acavna's old herald. Finding evidence of the godling's corrupting influence the whole way, the Agents make a name for themselves in the bizarre city of outsiders, gaining audience with the Shieldmarshal and securing his advice on how best to deal with the Moonstone. Before they can act on this, the Star Archon, having been corrupted and driven mad by Nuruu'gal, leads an army of burning celestials into the city in a grand purge, forcing the Agents to decide whether to run or fight.

New Moon Rising (18-20)
With a ritual in hand, the Agents must travel to the Mordant Spire to convince the Elves there that they must claim the spiritual essence of Acavna. The tower itself reacts violently to their plans, and must be calmed before the Agents can convince the goddess' remnants to take back the Moonstone's power and be reborn! But it's too late for that; a new creature closest to Acavna's ideals must make the ultimate sacrifice to remove the Moonstone from play, being reborn as a new moon god. To do this, the Agents need to cleanse Acavna's center of worship (and it's master, an undead moon dragon) and perform a ritual that will allow a chosen mortal to ascend. Nuruu'gal refuses to back down though, as a host of demons, devils, mutants and aberrations assault the ritual site, the tripartite forces of Nurgal's pieces making their final ploy to become one again and teach mortalkind to fear the sun! Win or lose, the Agents are the catalyst for the rebirth of a god, be it of the new moon or the burning sun.

Funnily enough I too have an AP idea that involves the Moon. I'll post more later but basic gist is "Pathfinder Agents find themselves in a position where their actions will determine which of two somewhat dead deities will experience a rebirth, the original Nurgal or Acavna. Spans the Moon, Heaven, Basrakal, the Mordant Spire and the domain of an ancient dragon that served Acavna in life."

They weren't trying to be condescending, but we already know they're replacing alignment damage with Spirit, with Holy/Unholy and Sanctified traits colouring said damage. Odds are they'll just swap out all mentions of Good/Evil damage with spirit, like how they're already subbing out Positive/Negative with Vitality/Void.

Okay, someone above referred to Arazni as evil, and I take issue with that, and it's why I'm glad they're getting rid of alignment.

Arazni was a champion of Aroden, but she was abandoned by her patron, sacrificed by her followers, and eventually killed herself, only to be brought back as an undead lich against her will. She was then "worshiped" by followers were were an affront to everything she'd fought for and believed in life, and force to administrate a nation she found repugnant.

How is she the evil one? she's the victim of evil.

Now the cover shows her flesh back to one of living, so it's not likely she'd be stepping into the roll of a goddess of undeath (Although I could think of some awesome stories for that) I'm actually getting a little worried for Iomedae

Generally agree with "Hate Aroden", but she didn't kill herself, Tar Baphon did her in and tossed her carcass back to the Knights of Ozem. For more messed up stuff, Aroden was both her patron and her friend when she was still a mortal.

Unfun play experiences are generally being in a party playing another martial class whem their is a fighter in the party and the stakes are high.

Hard and severe encounters are the ones that matter. Hordes of weaker opponents are less a threat than thwy are time consuming and generally easily defeated with some basic tactics that any martial can excel at with a minor amount of support but hard and severe enemies get to be the domain of the fighter with other classes mostly relegated to enabling the fighter.

Got a heroism buff, its better on the fighter than any other martial.

PF2 has tight math, is balanced around accurracy more than pretty much anything else and life or death situations, rhe most important in an published AP or adventure. Non combat scenarios are set backs if you fail and the game is designed that failing at one of those doesn't prevent the story moving forward.

PF2 is a combat centred came almost all feats and definitely the ones rated high are to support or improve combat chances. Same with spells. No one cares whether you used a knock spell, picked the lock 9r kicked down the door. Everyone cares about how well you contribute to combat.

I am suggesting fighters math be brought back in line with the rest of the martials and top modifiers in thw game. They havebaccess to plenry of good combat feats that can chamge combat without the +2. They can make a negative play experience because buffs are better spent on them (mathd shows this) than on any other class.

As someone who actually has both a Barbarian and Fighter in the same party, my Barbarian hasn't said anything about feeling bad/worse than the Fighter, if anything they work together quite well as the front line badasses. But I'll admit that's anecdotal, based on my experiences. I imagine you've experienced games where the Fighter has massively outshone and made the other martials feel like dirt?

They're in Second Darkness (which I've seen near-universal disdain for before this news broke), a group almost no one in this discussion has mentioned feature in one book of Extinction Curse, they get a bit part in a single volume of Abomination Vaults, and that's all I personally know of. We haven't had them as a primary antagonist in something since before PF1.

Let's see. Second Darkness, Abomination Vaults, Shattered Star, Hell's Rebels (in the form of Shensen) are just off the top of my head and I am quite sure individual dark elves also appeared in other volumes. Of course there's extensive mention of them whenever an article about fleshwarping comes up. So, yeah, they were an organic part of the setting which now is being ripped out quite inorganically.

All I am mildly argueing for is using a more lore-friendly method of getting rid of them in the setting (canonically speaking) than just stuffing them into a dark closet and pretending they never existed. Have them emigrate to another dimension en masse due to some in-game event, which itself only needs to be mentioned in passing. It's not as if elves are strangers to using portals to GTFO when something bad happens. Much better than to pretend they never existed in the first place.

To be fair with Shensen, literally no one would know she was born a Drow unless they read her NPC block in the back of Song of Silver. It has zero impact on her current character, she doesn't interact with Drow in any way in published material, and has a closer relationship with the Aquatic Elves of Kintargo. Using her as an example of prominent Drowness doesn't really help the argument that they were a prominent and major part of the setting.

And who knows, maybe them organically exiting the setting would also have been a no-no from a legal perspective, but whatever the truth of it I'll accept that how Paizo are handling it is the way they have to handle it moving forwards. Could be smoother than them being made up sure, but it is how it is, and we won't know the lore implications for a while anyway, not until they can start publishing stuff.

Either way, it's been bothering me and I wanted to see if anyone else noticed.
