General prestige class feats? I'm sensing using spell casting advancement for Kineticist blast damage, Witch hex DCs, and other things like that.
What I want is a generic "Extra Prestige Class Feature" feat.
If you have at least one ability from a pick-one-every-x-levels list from a prestige class, pick another such ability for which you have the prerequisites.
My question is what the hell are they doing with the Starstone? That's unlimited energy with the ability to make gods. That would be a hell of a thing to deal with.
My take: Starstone Cathedral is still there.
So is the bottomless pit around it.
The pit does not exit out of the station.
I think the official word is "because of the Starstone; anything in print to the contrary should be ignored." But we'll find out more soon.

And at the end of it all, at the dawn of a new Age, he left. Can you really say he died? How? How does a god die and ensure their divinity can no longer grant spells? It didn't stop Acavna, it didn't stop Lissala, but why did it stop Aroden?
Lissala isn't dead. Like, seriously, canonically, she's not dead at all. She just wandered off, like Towelie.
I just looked this up and read it for the first time. Not bad for the meat of the story, but damn, I hate having to wade through Lovecraft's racism.
Is that the one where the horrifying shocker twist ending is that the lady had an ever so slight trace of African ancestry?

Segada purchased these metal machines from the city-state of Three Craters in the Land of Northern Lakes far to the east—a mostly-barren landscape pitted with crater lakes, strange geological formations, and specks of monster-infested forests where the residents dig into the earth to mine precious metals, highly pure iron, and skymetals.
This isn't actually true. There's a whole occult ritual from Sarkoris used by god-summoner-types to grant a band of warriors bonuses, at the price of the primary ritualist being possessed by spirits in a somewhat unpleasant fashion.
I'm having a problem with this passage from page 183:
"Strix are neither particularly prolific nor long-lived, which keeps their numbers low. A strix couple might have only two children, and many pairings remain childless, ensuring they cherish every member of their society. Such makes each death all the more devastating."
That's not "low numbers," that's "rapid extinction spiral" leading to "why are there still strix at all?"

Everywhere on Earth, at every point in history, humans have advanced as far as possible given the resources available. The Americas came up short on things like domesticable animals and plants, and Australia was even worse; being able to import everything from already-built-up areas just trumped the local developments.
In a world where magic both divine and arcane is a resource, I'd expect patterns to go a bit differently.
That would only work if you assume that there's no significant amount of population shift and outbreeding. Nidal isn't closed to other nations.

Hell, you can look at art coming out of Korean churches and see Jesus and his followers represented as Asian people. Not to mention the most popular modern image of Jesus is as a fair-skinned fellow with blue eyes and light brown hair.
In fact, back during the Renaissance nobles used to commission portraits of themselves as Jesus.
The one that caught on? The one whose face is still Jesus today all over the Western World?
Can we get a Sword and Planet AP that we get to battle the Dominion of the Black in the next couple of years?
Legendary Planet, from Legendary Games. Kickstarter just finished successfully, the players guide and prologue adventure are already out.
The bad guys aren't officially the Dominion of the Black, but they seem pretty similar so far.
My problem with the Vigilante is that Paizo has already locked themselves into having a Vigilante base class, and no amount of playtesting will convince me that this is a good idea. It doesn't matter how good the class becomes; it's not something that should be a class. Paizo should have publically playtested the idea before committing themselves to printing it.

I'm not seeing Hamlet so much. A little, sure, but... wrongfully imprisoned... a wise mentor... a daring escape...? Oh, I think we can do better.

Mystara was entirely mapped, at least on the global level, both inside AND out. :D By no coincidence at all, Bruce Heard's World of Calidar has a pretty darn sweet global map complete with climate zones and wind currents, though only the Caldera region has been focused on so far -- you might ask Bruce and his cartographer Thorfinn Tait for advice. (In fact, just hire Thorfinn Tait! He's got to be in the top five in the RPG industry right now.)
I don't think the Forgotten Realms Atlas actually was complete, if you're referring to the one by the late great Karen Fonstad. At the time it was published, iirc, only Faerun and Kara-Tur and maybe Maztica had been detailed at all, leaving a big blank where Zakhara would go and several smaller continents that may only be outlines to this day.
Krynn... was an easy job of mapping, iirc, as it only had two smallish continents and a few island chains. And Taladas did get covered completely in its boxed set, yes.
Eberron of course has its world map.
Harnworld is probably mapped in way too much detail. :)
