clearly PF2's art direction has adopted an all is chaos, nothing matters, YOLO approach to this sort of thing.

I'm pretty sure this isn't the case. We repeatedly sent naunet missionaries to WAR's studio trying to convert him to Chaos, but he always answered that he wasn't at all interested.*

* When we kept at it, he threatened to redraw all 2E proteans as hideous warty extraplanar frogs -- EWWWWWWW! -- so we're leaving him alone.

If he wasn't so busy with his day job, heading back to university, and other real life stuff, I'd pester Mr. Stewart to set up a patreon to cut loose with his planar observations. Just imagine whole Xanxost-style narrated articles written by Tegresin, Il'setsya, and Hymn of Entropic Electrons. :D

It would be crazy, bonkers, and probably far too lewd. XD

I've considered it, except IP ownership issues preclude me charging for stuff using Paizo IP. Not going happen. Yeah technically with Patreon you're not directly paying for anything per se, but I don't want to do something gauche like that regardless because I like Paizo, I like writing for them, and they're exceptionally nice to me. Plus I don't have time with being back in school full time.

Oops, I should have been clearer. Obviously, you couldn't include Paizo IP and it wouldn't be canon within the Golarion setting. But I'm sure you still come up with a wealth of new "generic" lore that GMs/players could drop into the setting but won't fit within the finite pages of this book.

Ah. I keep forgetting you mortals are still bound by linear progression of time. Rats.

The problem with going in depth in every single plane is that the book would end up being like... 1,000 pages lol.
Hold my beer. ;)
Don't tease us. ;) I would totally shell out for however much such a massive tome would wind up costing...though for the sake of the integrity of everyone's bookshelves, maybe it should be divided into at least two or three volumes. Inner Spheres, Outer Spheres, and Demiplanes?

I think Mr. Stewart was making a joke about his previous incident of submitting a substantially-over wordcount article causing the Paizo editor to make a Will save vs. stun. ;)

At first, this was one of my few real disappointments in the book, that Shelyn didn't even make the "other gods" list...but then I looked a bit more carefully, and found cause for hope :)
I wouldn't say hope, I'd more say terror. She's going places that might very well corrupt her.
If one of Shelyn's names wasn't "The Incorruptible" I might be worried :)

That's the thing about absolute titles: They are true, until unexpectantly, they aren't. As scary as ZK as, Shelyn the Cenobite Queen would be far scarier.

Well at least there's hope for a possible release of the other two volumes of Tabris the Chronicler's work next year then.

Er. Well... a snorgle of us proteans bumped into him as we were just starting what you mortals would describe as a crawl of intoxicant purveyor establishments. After the first couple "weeks", is that the term? (your concepts for marking temporal passage are so constricting), we realized he wasn't with us anymore. We, um, {looks uncomfortable} we sort of misplaced him, somewhere/somewhen out there.

{smiles brightly} But I'm sure he'll turn up eventually, with the majority of his ganglia, humours, appendages, and colors intact.

Pascals wager only works when you have reason to conclude a deity that cares about your belief in it. Absent that, for all you know the deity could punish you for believing in it.

"you..what.. what are you doing in my afterlife? ARRRRGH! not another one!" *7th dimensional tentacle objection*

That's like an even meaner Roko's basilisk, and it's a nifty idea for a rogue Protean Lord.

"Closed?" They're such daring liars.

Every year on these dates, the Paizo offices don't merely "close" - they magically cease to exist!

It's part of the Bargain they made with...Something....

Ya better shut yer bonebox on that clap, 'fore you end up addle-coved or in one of the Lady's mazes.

Internally, we have an idea. But that isn't firm enough for us to want to talk about when that might be, since we're not yet sure we're right.

So, not to be too reductive, we're not yet ready to talk about when we may begin talking about the things we're not yet ready to talk about.

No, I'm not SAYING that, since we aren't ready to say when we are ready to think about when we'll be ready to say things.

Ow. Reading this is like having a dictum-empowered trepanation. :)

I start from confused and only get more chaotic as the day goes on. You'll get used to it.

How did it make you feel when Crystal said she was to busy to make more art of you because she was working with more "beautiful" races?
Kinda stabby.

This Crystal mortal is probably just frustrated that her skills aren't up to the challenge of completely capturing the true depths of your beauty. (I bet she probably has given up making art of Kyra for the same reason.)

And as a chaotic neutral worshiper of a neutral evil deity... Damiel is likely setting himself up for a VERY unpleasant time in the afterlife. Here's hoping he either goes full neutral evil before he dies (and thus earns a good role in the Norgorberian afterlife) or changes religions (and thus escapes an unpleasant afterlife of punishment for being a poor worshiper of Norgorber)!
Or he ends up going into the Maelstrom. That can't be overly pleasant either. Not even Calistria and Gorum set up their haunts there.

Oh, I dunno. The soul of this Damiel mortal sounds like a nice seed to nuturewarp into a baby protean. We'll have to make a note to look him up when he expires.

Man, NOBODY knows what is going on with dingo.

It helps me to picture 'Dingo as a physical protrusion into our reality of a hyperintelligent pan-dimensional being. "His" race (re)shapes reality in their home dimensions by Words of Power, which is why he seems so puzzled by the ineffectiveness of government petitions and Internet conversations to affect meaningful quantifiable change.

He also makes a delicious mango chutney and enjoys a rousing game of Brockian Ultra-Cricket.

I thought they were using mice for that.

They were, but even hyperintelligent pan-dimensional beings aren't immune to lawsuits from Disney. Pending the results, 'Dingo is currently using a real-world avatar that is totally inconspicuous and completely non-threatening to the locals... a 2.5 meter tall anthropomorphic weta. {rolls eyes}

A hug?
I'm not sure how to investigate that in a way that does not risk causing the end of the multiverse.
did you try opening your arms in a welcoming fashion?
Do you really wanna give a falling moon a motion that says "I'll catch you!"?

Kinda worked in Majora's Mask didn't it? :)

granted it was a bunch of giants doing it IIRC...

Hmmm, this gives me an idea for an experiment. Tell Groetus to stay where Its at; I'll be right back... I'm gonna go get a Chewbacca.

Mostly.

There are some very strange arrangements even among the Big 20. Calistria and Gorum are decidedly NOT Good, yet both of their realms are in Elysium while NE Norgorber's realm is underneath LN Axis, and is rumored to even be a part of how that city works.

"Well, we tried to build in the Maelstrom, but we gave up after the third time our foundations spontaneously transformed into chickens that got eaten by the wolves that appeared out of the walls..."

Apologies, you all look like Lego bricks to us.


I'm here. but I divided by zero while poaching some eggs this morning and my avatar was annihilated.
