Art Blog Entry


Lost Omens Campaign Setting General Discussion

Silver Crusade

No one was discussing the art in today's blog entry so I thought I would begin a discussion concerning said art.

It's pretty. But then I pretty much like most of the art styles put to use by Paizo...

Is that some sort of Sihedron rune variant? And if so, what could be the relevance of only four arms as opposed to seven? What's the deal with the crow? Does Seoni have a familiar I've managed to overlook all this time? Is Kyra ever going to admit her burning passion for tattooed female sorceresses?

And did anyone else get a Wee Jas vibe from the whole scene?

That's my favorite picture of Seoni to date. There is a bit of a Wee Jas vibe off of that pic, and... ...oh hell, you've already posed all my questions. Pretty cool piece.

Hi, Mikaze. I think she does, yes. It doesn't get mentiond a lot. (Or maybe that's Lini....)

(It's an acursed shame, though, that none of the iconics own more than a single set of clothes.)

I've noticed that a lot of the half-page art we see would be great if it were made into a calendar. This page, for example. Or the encounter with Big Bird from May 19th's blog entry.

They do. It all just looks exactly the same.

Ah, like Richie Rich's closet having dozens of white shirts, black jackets, blue pairs of short pants, and red bow ties!

It's the unholy symbol of Asmodeus—a five-pointed star. The fifth point is, apparently, hiding behind Seoni's voluminous robes.

As a cleric she's not supposed to be interested in material gains, but it's hard for her to ignore Seoni's huge tracts of land. So time will tell, I think... ;)

That's a gross overgeneralisation. I'd say it all depends on the deity.

Let's consider Cayden. I'm pretty sure "material gains" are mandatory there. And then there's Calistria...

Was your sense of humor surgically removed, or did they just rip it out with pliers?

Didn't even know about it until I saw this post. :)

No clue.

Yes you have. She has a little lizard familiar. His name is Dragon and he's a blue-tailed skink (lizard stats MM275.)

I'm banking on Merisiel. :)

That's a pentagram, folks. And the "familiar" in the picture... or crow, to be exact... doesn't belong to Seoni. That's all I'm going to say.

I know I'd buy an Art of Pathfinder book if it were ever put out. But then I'm artbook crazy.

Damn that Asmodeus and his hip stylized pentagrams!

It is this attention to character depth and roleplaying opportunities that keep me coming back for more Pathfinder.

Now I remember it. Out of sight, out of mind I guess.

Oh, I get it now. Slaps forehead.

Kyra must have taken a level in sorcerer.

Ah, but you're forgetting... there's a third person in that picture. Someone who will remain a mystery until you read the adventure. ;)

Am I the only one remembering that imps can take the shape of crows/ravens?

What's LB stand for? And no snarky Lesbian/Bisexual comments either...because my mind already took that side road.


Last Baron. I was really excited about this series of modules, but the art blog threw a wrench in my enthusiasm. Ah well, I’m sure it’s just a one off.

Maybe Asmodeus has a familiar.


So LB is a moniker just for this series of modules? Are we talking a trilogy or an AP length series or what?


Well, I am looking foreward to reading this module. I would say how good Steve Greer is, but I don't want to inflate his ego too much! ~grins~

So she's an actual person and not an erinyes? Though the glowing eyes are more traditionally succubus traits...

LB stands for "Last Baron." It's a 2 part series that we're trying out.


My children made up a song about our animals in response to the Paizo goblin Christmas song. It took them awhile but they demanded I post it anyway.

Sneaking through your yard,
Eating all your shrubs,
We hope you didnt like your fence we got a little rough!
Ate it all up, put it in a pile; Maybe you'll wake up in
time to pick up all our piles!

Now we're in your house
its fancied up so nice
with grassy things set all about
There's so much to enjoy!

Theres a paper doll
Heres a tree'ey toy
for a moment we stand in awe theres so much to inhale!

Maaaaaaaaaaa
In a pile goaty style
what could be more fun?
Eating toys for girls and boys
until we're finally done!
When you walk hearts will grate
because we've had our way!
this is great! Lets celebrate!
A goaty Holiday!

So was mine. No worries.

Let's "pray to Cayden" over it, and all is forgotten. If you know what I mean.

Has his day off. It's in the park, laughing at the Nordic Walkers, and asking them whether the ski were stolen or if they forgot them.

Nah. It's a fiend. A fiend's not a person. If you think I'm a racist, I can prove it: Charm Person doesn't work on them, so they can't be a person. ;-P

Now I wonder how many people have condemned D&D in the past because it promotes racism with the charm person/monster nomenclature.

We should tell Jason to rename them "Charm Humanoid" to be on the safe side :D

Your humor is subtle and witty. I approve. To Cayden! :D

Ah, at least once it was appreciated.

I often ask women whether they want to pray to Calistria, and they either don't understand, or pray to Zon-Kuthon and Rovagug. :(

Sounds like you're just hanging with the wrong kinds of women. :)

Yeah. Those Torag priestesses are just too uptight.

Hey, something funny I just noticed. If you click on the pic to blow it up to full size and read the pendant the elven woman behind Seoni is wearing, it looks to me like it says "XP".
