Was able to peek at the Arcadia map and get a summary of the new regional info thanks to a kindly redditor - I’m so, so pleased. The map is gorgeous!
Yay!!! :-D That's exciting news!
Notably, it divides the continent up into six meta-regions, which gives us a good template for future expansion!

Would you mind telling us the six meta-regions?

Reusable vinyl stickers for use with the Map Packs and Flip Mats. This could include generically-useful by category, e.g. building furnishings; campsite; caravan; trees/bushes/rocks; temple furnishings and shrines; treasure piles and art objects; etc.

And it could be expanded with specific packs to accompany adventure paths, assuming the art orders could be coordinated without too much pain. (I'm afraid adventure-path specific packs would be much higher effort, however, due to coordinating with the adventure developers/writers.)

This is an excellent idea! Seconded.

Thank you and the warehouse team for continuously working hard to get us our products as fast as you can. Most people understand shipping times are unpredictable these days. Thank you. I know it is stressful having to be the voice and ears for that.
We appreciate you all.

Acting in self-interest at the expense of others is generally considered evil.

Altruistic acts are generally considered good.

But, that being said, where one draws the line does vary from person to person. Some people are perfectly willing to trade the lives of an 'innocent'(non-related to the issue bystander) for their own, or their child's, or their clan's, or their country's.

"Caring for your child isn't love, it's bias."
(I don't remember where I heard that, sorry)

I wouldn't fault the vampire for wanting to live, all the same, I would do my level best to kill it as a threat to my family. In the same vein, I wouldn't fault a bear or cougar for going after my kid while we are hiking, but fault or no, I wouldn't hesitate to shoot it in that situation.

But I've let this thread get out of control, I haven't been able to post as much as I've wanted to. Since things are getting heated, I wouldn't mind if a mod closed the thread, it's also been going into some dark places. Figures I come back after a few years and start a mess.

Barong, you didn't start a mess. Just because you set up a room, your not to blame for others coming in and trashing it.

And now for some interesting news...

A company in New Zealand has come up with a method to relay electricity wirelessly with what are essentially radio repeater stations.

Among other things, they plan to use this to move power from off shore wind turbines back to the mainland without the need for gigantic copper cables.

Thios probably isn't a popular opinion with most people these days, but not all police are bad, not in the USA or, i imagine, in any country. They are people, and some are good and some are bad. But police are important. They protect people who are incapable of doing so themselves.

I for one appreciate our officers of the law, and believe that most of them joined the police force to help and protect people, not so they could abuse others. Thank you officers for your service to your fellow people.

Looking forward to Agents of Edgewatch, and I am sure that it will not disappoint me. None of Paizo's AP's have so far.

Thank you Paizo.

Small quibble.. you mention geologic timescales here of millions and then billions of years. I'm with you on the millions *thumbs up*. But the billions? Macroscopic life on this planet has been around for a tad over a half billion years. Are we officially saying that geologically speaking Golarion is much older than the Earth? That is certainly possible and could have interesting ramifications moving forward *cough* Absalom station *cough*. Or is that just a moment of exaggeration that got out of hand?
I think the timescale on Golarion is supposed to be much longer than the timescale on earth. They have had human civilization for much longer than we have, so why not? The cutoff for "everything before this period is kind of uncertain; we don't have good records or surviving ruins" on Golarion is ten thousand years ago, after all.

9600 BCE is when Atlantis sank according to Plato. 11,600 years ago. Which was roughly the same time as the Younger Dryer comet impact which caused continent-spanning forest fires and immense amounts of glacial melt, increasing sea-levels by hundreds of feet in a relatively short time.

Gobekli Tepe in Turkey is about 11000 years old.

The time frames between Golarion and Earth aren't that different. They just have the advantage of longer lives races and so more history of their work pre-cataclysm.

There is at least one sword school/fighting academy that sounds like a duelist's dream, the Orsini Academy. Its headmaster is a famous local swordsman, Vencarlo Orsini.

And if kung-fu movies have taught me anything, its that where there is one fighting school, there will be others, and the students will duel to prove superiority of style.

But as a very lawful community, it is probably illegal, unless maybe a contract detailing terms was written up by both parties and then authorized (for a fee).

That's not what he's talking about, I think. He's talking about a map that shows Thassilon before Earthfall, not Thassilon's borders overlaid over the modern map. Earthfall changed a LOT... not the least of which is that pre-Earthfall there was no Varisian Gulf.

Exactly this. I want to see the pre-Earthfall landscape in that area. I want to be able to see everywhere the Giant's Causeway ran. I want to see major cities and sites of each Thassilonian realm.

I want a gazateer to go along with this map, done like your typical ones, with just enough info to spark adventure ideas, for both current people discovering the ruins, as well as an idea of who or what lived there before Earthfall and what they may have been up to.

First off, let me start by saying how much I love Pathfinder.

I have been here since before the beginning, and hope to never see it end. James Jacobs, I love Varisia, currently running a 10-year and still going play-by-post campaign there. The runelords are awesome, and I thoroughly enjoyed Wrath of the Righteous.

I am also one of the hopefuls waiting for a Second Darkness hardcover reprint one day, so that it can take the place of the softcovers on my shelf.

Now, on to what I want to see in this Adventure Path...

One map I really want is Thassilon before Earthfall.

Specific, sin-themed creations of each runelords.

More of Sorshen... I don't mean like that...though, I guess I wouldn't complain, haha

Spoiler:
I don't believe the Scarnetti belong to the Sczarni. The Scarnetti's are a Chelish descended family, while the Sczarni are Varisian. Furthermore, I think it was a Scarnetti ancestor that killed a bunch of Varisian during a peaceful talk about mutual habitation of the area.

I don't have any of my books with me, still out for the holidays, but this is how I remember it at least.

Anyone, feel free to correct me.

Most models don't seem to be physically fit, and instead most of them seem malnourished and underexercised. Yeah, they may have a six pack, but it's because they have no fat whatsoever, which is extremely unhealthy, and furthermore, very impratical. Fat gives you reserves to turn into energy in lean times. If you have none, then you won't survive a famine. Too much is bad, but as with all things, a balance must be maintained.

The Hobgoblins won the Goblinblood Wars in Isger, and have formed a new nation there. They also conquered much of Druma. They secretly serve an advanced race of darkland goblinoids.

Added in a wild and vicious race of wolf-men who once considered Sarkoris their homeland. Many fight with the Mendevian Crusaders.

Andoran is a benevolent monarchy/kingdom, with citizens, not serfs, though they still have nobles as well.

The Linnorm Kingdoms extend in a long peninsula to the west, and border Jotunheim, a shattered subcontinent, mostly destroyed by Earthfall.

Taldor still holds Galt.

That's all I can think of while at work.

Ok. Consider that humanity was last reset around the end of the last ice age (or the start of our current interglacial period), when we lost an average of 100-200 miles of land off of every coastline in the world. This was about 12000 years ago. So this means.We actually have about a 2000 year advantage over them, putting them well ahead of us technologically and socially at that point in our history (approx. 0 AD/CE).

THAC0 was literally "To Hit Armor Class 0", and it was the number you needed to roll on the d20 in order to hit some with an AC of 0. AC ranged from 10 (the worst) to -10 (the best).

My wife has that books also. Cracked me up when I flipped through it.

On the Kabal issue, while I think most of us wish that we had been able to keep F, they took it fair and square both times. We were able to claim it back once, but it doesn't look like we will be able to this time. We had several discussions about merging, but in the end, there were too many issues we couldn't resolve to merge.

But, I believe we are on good terms, and hopefully we will be able to cooperate as neighbors in a mutually beneficial way. And if not, c'est la vie. We will deal with that when necessary.

Everyone, congratulations on bringing this exciting land rush to a close, and may you enjoy your settlement locations until OE.
