Imagine the Impossible!

In a land still scarred by a war between two undying archmages and their respective nations, reality defies the rules binding the rest of the world. Cities crafted by wishes and fields harvested by the walking dead lay in between lands where magic warps and twists with an undefinable will. Explore the history of immortal wizard kings, wield explosive and unusual technology, and channel awe-inspiring legends in a region where the present is still haunted by the past, and echoes of destruction still shudder across the minds and souls of those who brave the Impossible Lands!

Written by: Mariam Ahmad, Saif Ansari, Alexandria Bustion, Basheer Ghouse, Michelle Jones, TJ Kahn, Matt Morris, Dave Nelson, Shiv Ramdas, Mikhail Rekun, Michael Sayre, Tan Shao Han, Ruvaid Virk, Jabari Weathers, and Brian Yaksha.

Great book, inconsistent editing

4/5

A longer review was eaten by the website, so this will be a bit shorter than originally planned.

This is a great book, well worth the buy. It has fantastic art and great exposition for all its major areas.

I did find a distracting number of errors throughout however, ranging from simple typos (such as the Alkenstar stat block indicating 93% dwarven population; or the description of Bhopan's Eternal Bloom palace not aligning with the provided map in cardinal directions), missed words in sentences, and confusing inconsistencies (such as the myth of Dongun Hold's "eternal stews" being incompatible with the fact that the city doesn't use fire for cooking for a season every year). Paizo usually has an excellent standard of editing and proofreading, which is what makes these errors all the more glaring.

I also personally do not understand the niche the Vishkanya ancestry is meant to occupy. The others are all great, but I fail to see what really sets the Vishkanya apart aside from "misunderstood", something already readily represented in other player options like the tiefling. They might have had a place as a heritage, but they seem to lack substance as a full ancestry.


Another Fantastic Addition to the Lost Omens Line

5/5

This book is fantastic. It introduces a number of great ancestries, with enough page count to make them rich and exciting options. It describes a number of fantastic adventuring locations with a radically different feel from anything else you'll find in the Inner Sea. It's great at offering inspiration for adventuring ideas; each of the three cities in Nex made me want to run a campaign based in that city.

And the art - I'm not a big art person in general, but the art in this book is AMAZING. Probably the most evocative, imagination-inspiring, and beautiful art I've seen in any Paizo book. (And that's a high bar!)

This book is neck-in-neck with the (phenomenal) Mwangi Expanse book for my favorite book in the Lost Omens line.

Okay, is there any reason to leave this product page pinned? It is out now, and the excitement about it seems to have settled down.

I think it was mistakenly pinned. We will unpin it. Thanks.

My pick for unofficial theme song of Niswan, ever since LOWL had that killer art of the elephant walking through its streets…

Apparently I have to have a Spotify account to listen to that song. Not happening.

The basic ad-supported Spotify account is free.

They pay the artists who they host a pittance… which is why I also buy copies of the music I like from Bandcamp.

I mean, they still pay them and that's what they agreed for. Listening to music on youtube with adblock on doesn't give artists anything for example.

I answered the question that was asked.

Man, whomever wrote the Nex entries really wasn't pulling punches. They ripped the whole deal to shreds XD. It's great.

That would be Jabari Weathers I believe! He's a fantastic writer, hope we continue to see him on authors lists!

Absolutely agreed, but FYI, Jabari's pronouns are they/them

Ah, my apologies! Should have double checked! I hope we continue to see them!

So, Person Who Plays 3.5/PF1 hybrid here. I, *for completely inexplicable reasons* feel something like getting product from Paizo today.

I am going to be looking mostly from a fluff perspective (since I don't 2E), so a question about whether much will ne nonuseful to me. (Not a lot, I suspect, if 2E's sourcebooks are like 1Es... Which I bought pretty much all of, just to read for fun in the first place.)

I gather this is, Geb/Nex/Mana Wastes/Jalmeray (it's not terribly clear from the description)?

Side question, since shipping and storage alone wiuld make it impractical, but why is the hardcopy three times the page count of the PDF?

This is massively useful as a setting book. There are a few mechanical things, but it's much more focused on the different regions. It feels like several lore books all packed together. And yeah, those regions are correct.

No idea what's up with the page count. I have the PDF, and it's absolutely 300+ pages!

Figured as much; ta.

I did wonder what was up with that, likely just a typo then...

Copy-paste is the bane of accuracy.

Huh, Vishkanya has following lines:

Others Probably... Initially mistake you for having a tiefling or draconic heritage.

Am I seeing things or does it look like we might get draconic versatile heritage? *screams in draconic sorc*

Several bloodlines and nations are famous for dragon-blooded rulers, and that usually manifests as Sorcerers and Bloodragers.


Folks,

I am happy to report that content from this book has been added to TOS 2nd PRO edition version 18!

TOS 2nd PRO edition is the powerful Excel Character Manager for Pathfinder 2nd edition.

Check Nonat1s's video here for a quick overview of the tool (based on the older v5 edition)

Happy Gaming!
