My idea is that Lissala was a LN goddess who later turned into LE. It has been mentioned that she felt that all knowledge should be freely shared in Azlant. This was the big difference she had with Amaznen.
I would rule that there is a barrier in Krynn that blocks the power from outside gods, but that it only really works on demigods. True gods can bypass it. So Andoletta's clerics would slowly lose their power, while the clerics of Sarenrae would be unaffected.
Magic in Krynn comes from the moons. This should be reflected by some feat that would allow Krynn mages to increase their power based on the moons. This would make them stronger on Krynn, but weaker on Golarion.
The Towers of High Sorcery would also try to regulate and control the magic users coming from Golarion. The Golarion mages would look at them as a bunch of extorstionists or self gloryfing loons at first. The idea that one organisation claiming to represent ant contain all arcane magic-users would be a ridiculeus boast to them. So the Golarion mages would ignore them, wich would make the Towers pressure harder and things would escalate from there.
The Balance between Good and Evil. This is a key component in the Dragonlance. Golarion lack that and the idea that Good not being opposed by Evil would cause it to become Evil, would look bizarre, bordering on Blue and Orange Morality to the people and gods of Golarion. Cayden would then promptly ignore the Krynn gods and proceed to drink wine and try to beat up Evil.
I was wonderings what monsters could be used as the god of a cult. It wouldn't have to give divine magic, just be able to do something for the people worshipping it or causing enough fear that they do.
The ones I already got:
Has anyone got more?
Just finished Nevernight by Jay Kristoff.
You could, but the extradimensional energies would have side-effects. Do you like having chickenfeet because you keep eating otherworldy fowl?
A desert town where the rules of heat and cold are reversed. The more you try to heat something up, the colder it gets and the reverse. As a result people in this town are freezing to death in the hottest place on the planet.
Thanks guys, some great material you have.
To flesh out things a bit:
He figures that no matter what happnes he comes out ahead. Even if he loses control and he gains none of his objectives, he always makes notes, so he can try again.
I saw the tulpa and the egregore after reading some Discworld stories and the idea just clicked.
The basic idea is an occult caster wants the power of a god backing him up, but he's too much of a control freak to worship any of the existing ones. Solution: build your own that you can control.
By combining tulpa and egregore techniques he plans to make an entity that is fuelled by the minds of its worshippers. With the right spells , such as imbue with spell-like abilty, it could fake being a god reasonably enough.
Some idea's on the temples and cults:
The temples are divided in several area's:
The cults are all mystery cults. It's members should have access to feats, items or spells that the players don't have and will only get by either joining the cult, or by stealing it's secrets.
Make magic mysterious.
Magical items should be rare and have side-effects. People should wonder if having these things is really worth it.
Anything can be worshipped. A cult can just as easily worship an elemental or an idol as an actual god.
Warpriests and shamans could be used in the foreigners quarter. This were you find all the immigrants from other cultures. Ninja's could be the elite forces of an assasin cult. Play up the strangeness. Make the players feel out of their dept whenever they enter the quarter.
The PCs are members of a diplomatic mission to make first contact with another starfaring civilization. This Federation is fully tech based and there is no reference of magic use anywhere.
About 7: You should check out the anime/webnovel Overlord. The main character, an average man, becomes a lich and he realises that he is no longer distrubed by death and murder and that he has no emphathy for humans anymore. Creepy sets in the moment he freaks out over this and his undead state forcibly calms him down. Now imagine hundreds of years of such an existence.
Lawmakers twist the rules to make themselves richer and others poorer. The order they espouse is one where they rule massive estates with the rest of us as slaves.The whole nation/state thing is a nasty, savage relic from dark times that must be expunged. Chaos is the true source of civilization. People working together of their own free will, not petty commands.
The god of Magic. Followers keep to a personal code, but have no problems breaking laws to save lives. Often depicted wearing a long coat while burning down evil-doers.

Engineers try to make things sturdier then they need to be. For an exploration vessel they probably tought up every problem and hazard they could and tried to make sure the ship could take twice that. Sure, it didn;t help them much against the Dominion, but most of the ship staid in one piece. That's still an impressive feat.
One of the reasons the League has been able to strenghten it's grasp on Numeria is because of the Worldwound I think. All the people who have the power and influence to investigate and challenge the League are more focused on taking out the demons. By this point the League can easily take out the occasional loner or group who comes to investigate.
