And re: perquisite/prerequisite, I went with Perquisite both for the soft phonetic link to prerequisite and for the connotation that the opportunity to work for the good of all is a privilege. As Eleanor notes, I'm sure not everyone sees it that way ;)

Years of copy editing taught me the hard way not to do this, because no matter how clever you feel at the time, your wordplay will forever just look/sound like a mistake. Sometimes you just have to murder your darlings and not pick the word that sounds very similar to a different word that actually looks correct in that context.

It was a difficult lesson, because I love puns more than life itself. (It's OK; now I'm a programmer and my puns can't harm anyone.)


I think that was done by u/Klondike307 from the Starfinder subreddit. Here is a post he made with another one:

It sounds like an amazing AP.

I'm anxious to see what comes next, after we have "concluded" our fight against two of our greatest enemies (the Runelords and the Tyrant) one after the other.

Will the evolution of Pathfinder give us an even greater enemy to fear?

I hope so. It IS someone you folks already know, after all. Mwa ha ha.

I always knew Damiel would be the one to kill me.


Agreed; it took me a while to see it, but I appreciate the update. I hope things are going smoothly.

And if Erik sees this thread again, I also hope the quest for a Pathfinder Tales publisher is going well, too. I've been reading all the novels (on Kindle) in publication order, and I'm up to Bloodbound now. I don't want to catch up and not have any more to read!

The comics haven't been published yet. If you check your Humble Bundle purchase page for that bundle, you'll find that it says "Estimated ship date is Q1 2018." I don't know about the miniatures, though.

Thanks; great answer. I should have thought to check the Humble Bundle page. There wasn't a place to see info about it on Paizo.com, and I'd long forgotten the specifics by the time my December subscriptions shipped.

Sara/Katina/Sharaya, Zaister's answer pretty much resolves my question, unless you have anything official to add. :)


I purchased the Humble Bundle for Pathfinder Worldscape in October and placed the physical items (miniatures and comics) in my sidecart. I had expected that it might get shipped with my December subscription, but it's still in my sidecart and I don't have a good way to find out when I should expect it.

Could you let me know if there is an ETA on those items shipping?

Thanks!


I would like to (regrettably) cancel my Campaign Setting and Adventure Path subscriptions, for now.

I will keep my Pathfinder Roleplaying Game subscription.


Thank you very much, Katina. I see it in my sidecart now.


I'm having the same issue when trying to add Player Companion: Champions of Balance to my sidecart. Would you mind doing the same thing for me, please?

Backstory (modified from the NPC Codex entry):

Harsk is an uncommon dwarf. He enjoys the wide skies of the open plains more than claustrophobic tunnels, prefers the taste of tea to alcohol, and handles his battles at range rather than in melee. As a young dwarf, he eschewed the company of his fellows, finding that few things made him happier than crouching in a tree stand with his bow, listening to the wind through the forest leaves and waiting for prey to wander by.

That all changed twenty years ago when his elder brother, a captain named Sigur, led a dwarven war band from Janderhoff against a small party of raiding giants. Out of affection, Sigur offered his less-experienced sibling the chance to come and prove himself as chief scout and second-in-command. Feeling the weight of obligation to his community, Harsk accepted, but the experience only set him further apart from his peers. Night after night, Harsk seethed as his fellow dwarves drunk themselves into oblivion, treating the hunt as more of a festival than a sacred duty. When the dwarves were discovered by the giants' scouts, Harsk felt no remorse as he slipped away into the night, leaving them to the fate their disorder had earned.

Harsk's wandering eventually led him to Cheliax, where he found the order he craved in the laws of Hell. He realized that where free will is unchecked, there will always be those -- like his brother -- who fall short in their duties. To bring about his perfect society, he would hunt the enemies of Hell itself.
