The Roll of Years

The current year is 4708 ar (Absalom Reckoning). As the
calendar advances in the real world, time also marches
forward in the world of Golarion. This book was published
in 2008, with the corresponding year ending in the same
digit. Next year will be 4709, and so on.

Will there be a end of year gazetteer update? If not, I think that would be interesting.

Nope. We want to avoid making the gazetteer obsolete, which is what would happen if we did yearly updates to it.

Unless, of course, folk out there would be into buying a new gazetteer every year?

Sign me up! Web supplements would be an inexpensive way to handle it too. Of course, if one assumes that all the notable events in the course of a given year are handled in the AP's and modules, then one could compile their own supplements at the end of any calendar year.

Maybe an Almanac, like Mystara´s Poor Wizard almanac.

Aye, definitely a tricky situation. I think as "Roll of Years" supplements it would be more doable. The gazetteer could be used as is for those uninterested in "official" Roll of Years. Even those uninterested in the supplements would find, at least, some parts useable for their campaigns.

I would be interested in a yearly gazetteer/supplement. I find that events occurring around the world make for a more interesting and believable world, even if they do not really affect the PCs. I can do this myself, of course, but it would be nice to have you guys put your creative touch on the it.
