Thanks! I love flavor, so this looks like a great book to spend my credits on (the game shop comps us five bucks for each game we GM). I have a few Chelish character concepts that I want to get right and develop backstories for, and bounce ideas off of a few of the other players and GM's. It has such a rich history and is so much more than just Devilworshipers Gone Wild.
The Paizo blog post about the Winter Discount Code redirects here, rather than to the blog post. I think I remember the code, it was fairly simple, but if I can't, where should I go to find it? I'm just waiting for my Pathfinder Advantage to kick in, and then buying a LOT of PFS scenarios...
On the noble ranks...
1) What does non-hereditary mean? That they are appointed/rewarded nobility instead of being born into it, that their children are not considered nobles, or both?
2) Why would a noble be "non-landed"? If not land, what benefit would nobility entail?
3) Would a non-landed noble be expected to purchase their own land?
1) yes, they are appointed/rewarded with a (low) nobility title. Children were considered noble too, but would not necessarily inherit the title upon his death...although the eldest son is often appointed as the next lord.
2) As the eldest would inherit all of his father'said land, there were a lot of non-landed noble in Europe. The still had all of the other rights abd duty of nobility and could marry into a family with nonsense to gain land...or go crusading and grab a chunk of land a their own (River Kingdoms).
3) Not necessarily. They could set let in a town in one of the family estate or use one of technology 2 above mentioned options.
