I heard Woolballs work too^^.
The only thing that you're convincing people of is that no matter what changes to the Wizards would be made, nothing short of returning them their Tier 1 Godlike status of PF1 would suffice.
The Problem is, that RPGs and D+D esp. have set it, that a Magic-user bending Reality into a pretzel and a fighter getting a +1 on attack rolls is in the same power Level.
Because he can attack all day as i have learned in this thread.
Wonder what we made wrong in our Groups, because that never happened to us.
I think that was the Explanation in the start, but that went out of the window after mutants like Apocalypse or the even older Selene showing up^^
But she did have a relationship with Apsu (as someone mentioned), and even had a kid with him (the dragon Peace Through Vigilance.)
Isn't that still just a rumour?
And even if true, it does not mean that Iomedae is big on relationships.
If she had someone she likes in that way, I do think she would have difficulty to have a relationship, because not having much experience with that.

That is true. I mean how many People would know, that Men in Black is based on a Comic?
None of this is her fault. Even Erum-Hel would only be her fault, if trying to stop him and barley surviving it could be called that.
And I think the list of her successes are a lot longer. But that is never mentioned in this kind of discussions. Wonder why.
If I remember correctly in the Adventure Path it was mentioned that part of the problem was that the knights summoned her and forced her to fight the Tyrant and that made her weaker.
That is one part why she is not very fond of the knights to put it midly.
The irony is that they could have asked and she would gladly helped them but the knights being what they are thought not like this.
Did I get the wrong version of Pathfinder regarding Andoran? What you wrote is so far from the description of the country to take it seriously. Tenth-Century Norse and using no plate, really?
If he was still alive, wouldn't his clerics still receive spells? I always thought only death of the god can stop that.
And Pharasma had said that yes Aroden is gone. Out of game some Paizo staff had said so too.

So while I'm sure there are some that will complain about Hickman's work around, I for one welcome the fact he's made Goldballs WAY more fun and interesting that before.
The fact that this group of mutants works together to make that happen, proves what a great writer he is.
And yes making that work is a stretch but that happened before. I mean one example that comes to mind is Storms power makes her highly resistant against telepathy?
Just that Hope is on this Island would make anyone wonder, what she could do with all this powers at her hand. I mean Mimic with just five powers duplicated could get bad. But her duplicating jamie madrox and having all the other powers for example would get out of control real fast^^
now I can't get the picture of a large group of cobolds following a metallic dragon everywhere and wondering than he will start doing "dragon stuff" (meaning the things the evil kind of dragon is usually up to)
And after some time they start to learn by example and discover that not being evil is something that is good for them.
The way the goverment in the Comics works someone will do it sooner or later. And will be surprised if it blows up in his face like the dozen of times before^^. I mean being stupid seems to be a requirement for the job.
So prepare for the new and improved Puppet Master as a brain in a jar or something like that.
With 2 Edition it might not make a difference, but I think he will stay at 19th level for now. For me it is one of his perks^^

The discovery is something that would be too easy. That is one reason I think he stays at 19th level . And the struggle with his own mortality and keeping up his con is one of the points that make him such an interesting character.
Getting the Elixir would be the best chance if he does not want to become undead. But I would try to buy it. Trying to steal it would not only get the seller on his case, but the other bidders, too. And that could get too much even for him.
I find it funny that working with Sorshen is something that gets such a reaction. Never played Winters Reign? You rescue someone who makes Sorshen looks harmless.
One last thing attacking Sorshen just because she is evil would make me wonder how good the party is. And redemption is something that any person calling themselves good should not ignore.
It's not like that would not happened anyway. Pleasing everyone with a movie was impossible with the first one and it is even more impossible now.
And it is a difference between not liking something and writing or making videos talking about the "agenda" of the movie or just trying to sell made-up stuff as fact. I mean some people on youtube seem to make a habit of talking about the "agenda" of Studios for getting more women or minorities in lead roles. Seeing that they do that to every movie that fits that I wonder what their agenda is^^
That is true. That kind of villians are always better than the usual being evil for evils sake. Classic Examples are Magneto, Ra's al Ghul or more recent the already talked about Killmonger from Black Panther.
You make her sound like a more bloodthirsty version of Ivan the Terrible. That would be quite a feat. And with revolutionaries in Paris I hope you do not mean the war fought against the french revolution. That was not so black and white you make it sound.
Not to forget to conclude from her family to her being the same is not really a thing to do. Leaves a bit of bad taste.

Next on the list is "how humans react to fire". He is really waiting for the results^^

Something I'm surprised no one mentioned: I don't like how Nocticula turned out to be a fallen empyreal lord as it's pretty obvious the only reason why they did this is because she's pretty (where as most of the other demon lords are hideous monsters). Indeed, I'm not really a fan of the whole "beauty equals goodness" trope in general.
Her being a fallen empyreal lord was just a theory if i remember correctley. She changed because something extraordinary happened and it is not like she is suddenly a force of good^^
-Yes, I think practical is the word i should have used. And the difference is often "that looks sexy" compared to "that is over the top and can not really work."^^
-It reminded me of the old Simpsons joke about showing the ankle.
-Oh, I thought the word meant something more general. But any excuse for using the dictionary again is a good one^^
Yes I know that her first outfit was not what someone would call modest^^.
What I meant was that all someone could see of her on the cover for the Playtest for example was a part of her leg , because we see her in an action pose from behind with a big cloak and we got a discussion about seeing too much skin.
I like the new outfit too, but i wonder, if for some people that will be enough.
And let's not forget even totally covered someone can look "skimpy" if the artist wants it^^
Looks good and to anyone who thinks she needs bigger muscles. That does not say much about strength. Bodybuilders for example are not nesc. the strongest. They just have the muscle build after training for it and the usage of certain dietary supplements^^.
And if anyone thinks wiry people are not strong enough anyone remembers Bruce Lee for example^^?
And rereading this I kind of dread the Iconic Evolution of Seoni.
I mean if seeing part of her leg got someone to write about her being not "dressed right" I fear what kind of outfit she could get to not have page after page of discussion about it drowing out the interesting stuff about her and the scorcerer.
