Who could have seen this coming? :O

Jokes aside though, very excited for this, the lost omens books have been killing it so far and that cover looks sick!

Very excited about some of the names attached to this too, fantastic writers we've seen before like Allie Bustion, Michelle Jones and Mikhail Rekun, but also some new faces, including some indian writers!! Gives me a lot of hope that Jalmeray will be handled well and maybe lead into a Vudra book in the future..... (Saif Ansari's Vudra article was incredible and it's a crime we don't have more.)

Good to hear there'll still be online shenanigans! Would love to go to gen con but alas the Atlantic ocean is vast and I do not have sailing lore.

Excited to see what will be revealed this year!

I'm so unbelievably excited for this book, it sounds like it's really gonna flesh out the inner sea and make it a more believablea nd alive setting. The lost omens team have been killing it so far and I doubt that'll stop here!

Is this for the beach episode of the AP? Cause I'm gonna use it for the beach episode of the AP.
Giggling at the thought of a beach episode in 2022’s AP offerings. I suppose the Quest for the Frozen Flame crew could have nice enough time at the lakeside, but the other two? Any water the Outlaws of Alkenstar can find is probably full of toxic chemicals, and I can’t imagine the Blood Lords get too much out of a sunny day on the sea.

Now imagining the vampire party members grumpily under a parasol whilst the skeleton is having a nice day bleaching his bones in the sun!

When will we be able to start this subscription with the upcoming Lost Omens: Knights of Lastwall? :)

It doesn't sound like there is any assumption that PCs are starting with any kind of stone-age/prehistoric equipment or weaponry in this AP? Just standard off-the-shelf stuff up to and including steel armor/weapons/etc.?

It's noted they go to hillcross now and then for trade, steel armour and weapons are probably considered a good investment to buy for the following there :)

Could you walk me through this one? I haven’t heard this concern before, while the only snarl with Changelings I know of is some autism-related stuff.

They are hook nosed women (like im sorry some of the art could be straight out of 1930s propaganda posters) who are depicted as living on the edge of civilisations but never really part of them ("rootless cosmopolitans"). They steal children from those communities and eat them. I would recommend you research blood libel to see why this is so egregious.

From my interactions with people about this before, blood libel seems largely unknown to american gentiles which is why I think people miss this, but as a european it's so blatant and shocking.

I’m of Jewish heritage myself and familiar with blood libel, which is why I asked. I appreciate your explanation, but I’m afraid I don’t see it myself.

Hope the next volume is something more your speed!

That's fair and I'm not trying to tell anyone else what to feel about this, I just cannot bear to have this at my table so this book is looking like a miss for me.

I know one of the books is titled field of maidens which I'm definitely excited about since we might get more Holomog content

I’m not sure I understand the complaint. What’s the issue?

They're an antisemitic caricature complete with blood libel.

I remove all hags and hag-related playable options at my table because they make me so uncomfortable. This book sounds like its going to be very hard to separate from them.

Is the info on the gillmen just a reprint from the Ancestry Guide?

No, the ancestry guide was the extra stuff that assumed we already had the absalom book, the free pdf they released of the base ancestry is whts reprinted here :)

So stoked for this book!! Wonder if we'll get some magical new capstone feats!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Is it largely expected that you will be humans or is the tribe a bit more mixed? :)

The terwa lords stuff in this volume is really bothering me. Like, they're violent expansionist ethnonationalists who you're expected to sit and have a nice chat with while they spread their propaganda?

I don't want my players to miss out on the new spells and opportunities here but I can't in good faith run this as written.

Perhaps the child of the scout leader could have been the only survivor of the fight and the party can help them to recover and join the magaambya and get them into an environment where they can get away from Terwa influence?

Would appreciate any input from other people.

Have the gillmen taken the place of aquatic elves?

No, the 'gillmen'/azarketi are human descendants. Aquatic elves have been mentioned in multiple 2e lost omens books and still exist in the setting, we just don't have rules for playing them yet.

Just sent in my email! Absolutely thrilled to see the workers unionising and I stand with them in solidarity! There is power in a union!

I'm majorly in the "both Ragathiel and Arazni in the weirdest team up ever" camp. It just makes too much sense to me and I hope it will get confirmed one way or the other in this book!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I am wondering if my half elf snowborn witch would work for this, I'm sure there could be a couple of ilverani tribes kicking around the realm of the mammoth lords right? :P

I can’t imagine this was supposed to be announced like this, but I do feel vindicated in pitching/predicting an Alkenstar low-level 3-parter.
All is well. Given the retail and distribution cycle, these products needed to go live. Gen Con in mid-September is an anomaly. ;)

I get the feeling we will all find the announcements and panels at gencon just as exciting anyway haha

Can someone tell me about this lady? I didn’t know she was trans, or that she’s even a known character.

She was in Lost Omens: Legends! She's called Kalabrynne Iomedar and is kind of the frontline commander in Lastwall. She's the de facto leader of the Shining Sentinels and her child, Clarethe, was the first of the Crimson Reclaimers!

And she is absolutely canonically trans and had a wife, who was killed by the radiant fire :(

Hell yeah hell yeah hell yeah
Can't wait for this, the transfer from fighting the orcs to fighting longside them, the conflict of the frontline/absalom based command, the mystery of the patron of the crimson redeemers and an armoured baddass trans lesbian on the cover!!!!!!!! Sign me up to the knights!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Yessss got my authorisation as well, hoping being international doesn't mean I'm at the back of the queue haha will be refreshing emails for the next week :D

And for what it's worth I agree with Yossarian here. There's a reason I play Pathfinder and not Starfinder, I'm not much into sci-fi. There's a big difference in the entire idea of the setting between "an unstable portal to another world" and "spaceship travel is the norm".

It's fine if you have no issue with that! People like different things! But lets not pretend this doesn't come across as more sci fi than fantasy.

*blinks*

We are using the portal to go to another world though, not spaceships.

Yes, that's my point! That theres a way this could not stray too far into sci fi, which is what was being discussed in the first place; How easy it will be to keep this feeling fantasy.

The picture raises questions, but we won't really have the answers until it releases

Do we have any confirmation of whether international shipping has started? Domestic mail was mentioned but unsure if thats just cause thats where the problems are!

Ooooooh very excited to see Jessica Catalan's name on here, loved her work in the ancestry guide!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

ooooooooh my gosh I wasn't expecting this, I've always wanted a revolutionaries pantheon and the Touch of the Sun write up is just too lovely for words <3


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

It is already made clear the spider form is the anadi's natural shape, they learned how to make themselves into humans using magic


1 person marked this as a favorite.
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Well the important thing is in the lore the Anadi became adept at magic, so it didn't make sense for them to not be able to cast most spells in spider form. I don't believe we've seen any such lore basis for inventor Anadi.

Now we just gotta cross our fingers for penguins....

I really am enjoying this book. Art is wonderful! Ancestry info is wow! I was hoping to get a little more info on the Cascade Bearers, etc.

With Strength of Thousands coming out I wouldn't be surprised if they've saved a lot of the Magaambya info for that!

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I hope we get the players guide for this soon! Do we havy any word on when that will be?

Corgi Mount?! Oh man I hope my PDF ships soon


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Oh wow this looks awesome!! As a gm, having a reference for lots of shops and their owners will be so useful!

Also, very very happy to see accessibility options coming in this book! Ahhhh why is september so far away


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Ahhhhh that all sounds so exciting, thanks you Aaron! Can't wait to see what the last few unannounced ones are, got my fingers crossed for Samsarans!

Aaaaaaaaaah this sounds so cool!! And I'm stoked to hear the folk tales too!

The caption on the picture is odd?
"Be the first to play two new Pathfinder classes in just under 2 weeks!"
I'm fairly sure Jan 5th is over two weeks away, not under! Maybe this blog was supposed to be posted next week?

Regardless I am super super excited for two new classes! Not a big fan of gunslingers myself but anything like an inquisitor, shaman or tactician would be very cool!

The art in this is definitely gorgeous, almost cried out a little at how cute the dweomercat cub was and it's awesome to see some disabled character art!

The book sadly has done little to make me more interested in the actual society, albeit it was already one of my least favourite parts of a mostly fantastic setting, but some of the new options are great, I'm so happy to finally have a translator background and the new familiars were an unexpected delight!

A lot of the book really feels like it's desperately trying to portray a very unheroic group as heroes and ends up coming off disingenuous and awkward, quietly acknowledging the use of indentured labour before very rapidly moving on was particularly jarring.

A couple of characters covered were very compelling though, I feel like I could really imagine how the students would all love to crowd around Marcos and ask him for stories.
