I noticed the purple worm has both a bite and a sting attack. The anatomy of the bite is obvious enough, but I'm wondering what part of the worm delivers sting attacks. Is it the tail end (in which case, can it not use its stinger when only the front half has emerged?), or some spikes in/around the mouth, or some third option I haven't considered?

Being a worm, I'm guessing it's something at either end, other than massive size there doesn't seem to be a lot going on in between.

I was looking through the Bestiary (I've got the third printing), and found the metallic dragon artwork a little confusing. The copper dragon is brass-coloured, and the brass dragon is very copper-coloured, right down to the copper-oxide-esque streak of green down its belly.

I believe this counter-intuitive art style holds up in Dragons Revisited, but I don't own the volume.

Dragons Unleashed, however, has a copper-coloured copper dragon and a brass-coloured brass dragon. This makes a lot more sense to me, and the fact that it's the newer text certainly doesn't hurt.

I've also got the Bestiary Box, and here's where it gets curious. The pawns for young brass and copper dragons seem to stick to the Bestiary's version, but the adult pawns have the more aptly-named dragons.

So I guess in terms of PFRPG sources, as opposed to older 3.5 OGL ones, we've got one text on either side, and a pawns set that's a wash. In case it hasn't been obvious, if my campaigns encounter brass or copper dragons I'll play them with the more obvious colour schemes, but I'm curious if there was a reason for the switch, and if there are any other thoughts on the matter. If this has been resolved in a previous thread/blog post/errata document etc, my apologies!

Even the general lore is pretty clear about a handful of countries' stances on slavery, eg. Cheliax and Katapesh staunchly in favour, Andoran fiercely opposed, Absalom sort of conveniently on the fence.

What I'm wondering is where some of the other nations of the Inner Sea region lie on that spectrum, particularly Taldor (harder to make an educated guess than the ones with more predictable alignments).

What are your thoughts? Not just for Taldor, feel free to weigh in on others (especially neutral places) if you want. Thanks for your insight!
