What do you think happened to the other interns? Though I am technically slave labor and haven't added any Paizo employee heads to my shield.
Incidentally, my internship is over in a month, so any of you could claim your rightful place as the Blood Intern by applying.
One of my favorite parts about being an intern at Paizo is being able to sit back and watch conversations like this unfold:
Jessica: I couldn't wait until I got forced reincarnation so I could make a bugbear paladin!
Thank you for all of your feedback, everyone. I'll address the redundant feat issue when I post the updated improved familiar stats. The climb stats will stay the same.
There are no plans to include this in any products; this was something fun I wanted to do as an intern project. While I'd be happy to march over to Mr. Mona's office and demand that it be included in the Bestiary 4, I'm pretty sure the fact that it went to print months ago stumps any intern demands. :)
College admissions counselor. :D
I live in fear for and in awe of Australians. In Seattle, we have just have to worry about hobo spiders.

Cassidy, the text refers to merchants valuing them for their "potent venom", but apart from having the spell-like ability to accelerate poison, there doesn't seem to be any other reference to poison, can you explain?
Hi Tim! It looks like some of the formatting got lost. You can find the poison details tacked on to the end of Glide, under the "Special Abilities" header.
I once had to give a presentation as part of a job interview. The title? "Australia: Land of Everything that Can Kill You." Kudos on staying alive, my friend.

The +4 Sleight of Hand is a racial modifier. :) I didn't think about statting them as familiars, but I'm happy to do so and post an update on the forums at some point.

Interns must take contract work during subscription week to avoid being attacked by the raptors. Incidentally, the raptors look suspiciously like the warehouse crew.
Thanks! Mika from the warehouse helped. :)
He signed heavily, begrudgingly let me place the armor spike crown (not pictured) on his head, opened his office door... and sighed again. While he acted resigned on the outside, I'm pretty sure he liked it at least a little, because he left the spikes on the front of his desk. The ones on the door had to come down almost immediately--dear Mr. Mona took 1d3 damage after failing his Reflex save.
Jason hasn't even learned his lesson--he's leaving for Dragon Con next weekend.

Maybe if you'd take your intern to Gen Con, she would have been so grateful she'd have brought some.
They seem to have applied the zombie template to themselves, yes. I may invest in nerf guns.
There may or may not have been a directive on the project management whiteboard to BRING BOOZE on Tuesday... FOR FREEDOM! FOR HUMANKIND!
We found the beginnings of a wasp nest under a pallet in the warehouse today. Clearly, this is a sign that the cave raptors have allied with a Calistrian cult. Rethinking helping the warehouse during subscription week.
Have dropped parents off at the airport for Gen Con, adding to newly-developed abandonment issues. Don't leave me, forum people.
Spider decorations? There were no spider decorations in the designers' office...
Spiders serve as a Jason Bulmahn deterrent. Sadly, they work on interns as well.
Just remember, if you fill someone's office with packing material, just be sure to leave a bottle of their favorite alcohol on their desk ... it will delay the inevitable payback.
One of the first things I was taught at Paizo is the concept of ~*~INTERN IMMUNITY~*~. But I like your style.
I am pricing large quantities of party hats and gray spray paint for use in one office. I am open to ideas for Wes's office, James's office, and the development and editorial pits.
Most Paizo employees have flown to Gen Con. While not desperately trying to get subscriptions out with the warehouse crew, I sit in my dark office and listen to the cave raptors scuttle around in the walls. I think the spider decorations hanging in the designers' office across the hall are starting to move.
Very few supervisory staff members remain. Contemplating office pranks.
Right you are! Aslan is half lionhead rabbit, so we felt it was appropriate.
Here are more pictures of Aslan and Random. Aslan's castle is in rough shape right now (bunnies chew), but he has ordered a new one that should be finished soon. :)

I fear that you just gave Aslan a few ideas for his long term plans. Still, a vampiric bunny is better than a lich bunny. Or at least more cuddly. ;)
Aslan hasn't met any vampiric bunnies yet. The closest thing he has to compare them to is his father, who gets jittery and grumpy without his caffeine. Maybe I'll get him a copy of Bunnicula to chew on.
Aslan has ruled out vampirism as a post-death contingency due to their long list of well-known weaknesses.

Aslan has noted the pretender Floyd’s insult and threat. When the time comes, he is prepared employ Livingroom’s full military might to defend his realm. Per the Pledge of Mutual Defense signed with Random’s kingdom, Duvall’s forces will also be at his disposal. Additionally, his Grand Minion requests that “you kids play nice.”

I never saw any raptors, but that was before internistan was created for it's brief existence in the warehouse. . . There will be no planting of a flag on a desk in the office were you are allowed to sit. Unless you wish to wage war upon Project Management and Licensing simultaneously! You will be defeated! There is no doubt.
Unless Jay and I have already formed an alliance with Project Management. Where does that leave you?
Oh, I know.
In the walls with the cave raptors.
