James, here's a scenario for you:

Liz walks into the room, looking very angry, and you can feel a burning sensation in your pocket. What do you do?

Invoke the rite of the 37th mandala and call upon the fractals of Yeth-Vandus for protection.

Hi James,

Have you been playing Pillars of Eternity? And if so, what race/class combination are you playing?

I just started playing it. Bloodborne's been dominating my video game time, but in Pillars, I'm playing an elf priestess.

Hey James,

Will the Inner Sea Races fix the problem with the Elves of Kyonin that you have stated you have had? It seems like the perfect place to do so

I hope so, but RPG customers are pretty resistant to change and cling hard to previous printings and incarnations of things like this. It's a step in the right direction, but whether or not folks will be willing to let go of prejudices engendered by D&D or Tolkein or whatever... only time will tell.

So there is some revision for the elves in the book?

I seek judgment of a PC name's potential silliness or dignity!

Does the name Bren Faidmeir-Laurelshield sound tacky? Outstanding? Average? So ridiculous it immediately becomes awesome?

Not really. It just doesn't support the erroneous portrayal in the 5th Second Darkness book, which is where the bulk of the viewpoint that Golarion elves are no different from D&D/Tolkien elves comes from, as far as I know. Elves of Golarion the 32 page book on which much of this new book's elf stuff is based, doesn't really present elves in that manner. Neither does the page of elf information on page 25 of Inner Sea World Guide.

So... it doesn't "revise" elves at all, but it does put one more batch of information out there to support much of what we've done before, so hopefully this will be the tipping point that makes folks realize that Golarion elves aren't aloof and standoffish egoists who think themselves superior to humans.

Thanks. And on an ENTIRELY unrelated note (which actually IS related, I'm just trying to make a joke and probably failing at it), what's a good way to feel less insecure about my creative choices in things like RPGs or writing?

Experience; the more you write, the more sure you'll feel about your writing. That, and surrounding yourself with friends and supporters who encourage your writing.

Beyond that, things start to get into therapy type stuff that I'm really not comfortable providing advice for, frankly.

What would you say the child of an aasimar and a tiefling is likely to be?


The PathfinderWiki webpage for you says you want to buy a lizard. Did you ever get around to that? If so, what's it's name? If not, why not?

An aasimar or a tiefling. One of the two. Whichever bloodline happens to be stronger is the one that would win out.

I never did get a lizard, because of several reasons:

1) I'm not sure how my cat would interact with one.

2) The setup of the terrarium and heat lamps and all that was too intimidating.

3) The fact that I live alone and thus don't have someone to take care of the lizard when I'm out of the house for a week during Gen Con and during Christmas. It's one thing to have someone check in on a cat, but leaving a cat alone with a lizard for a week... seems like a bad plan.

4) I really don't want to patronize pet stores that practice sketchy animal catching stuff, which seems to me to be most pet stores. It's one thing to catch a lizard in your back yard and keep it in a terrarium (which is what I did as a kid) because that lizard isn't changing ecology. It's another to ship a lizard from some distant land to Seattle, which isn't very lizard-friendly.

So... never got one due to a combination of intimidation and guilt, I guess.

Does this imply a fundamental tone shift to Inner Sea Races compared to Inner Sea Gods? By that, I mean ISG seemed to be more a collation and polish on information to date on the various deities as well as a central listing of pantheons, of sorts.

Do you think a human sorcerer with the crossblooded abyssal and celestial bloodlines would be a good idea, since both races have a lot of human ancestry?

I have two players playing an aasimar and a tiefling in a relationship in a kingmaker game. I was thinking of introducing a kidnapping event a few years into the game. They're likely to be the rulers (being they have an established relationship and the two highest charisma scores),and given there's so much downtime, I figured enough years can pass where eventually the future heir might get nabbed for ransom.

James,

If a Human Werebear (Acquired, but through nontraditional means) and a Changeling had children, do you think the children would be Changelings, Skinwalkers, Humans, Human Werebears, Changeling Werebears, or something else? If they had several children, would it be possible for them to be different, either between males and females or some other division?

Buri's comment got me thinking. If you had to think of one actor/character to exemplify how you hear various outsiders speaking, who would it be?
a.) Aeons?
b.) Qlippoth?
c.) Inevitables?
d.) Daemons?
e.) Devils?
f.) Demons?
g.) Azatas?
h.) Proteans?

Could the child be equally likely to be just plain human?


Hi,

When we cast a spell, on many pictures of PRPG, we have some magic circle over the hand of caster, (like CRB's cover) this is always visible ?

What I want to know can be reduced to:

When we cast, a casual observer can easily determine "This wizard's casting" ? Or we need to have some spellcraft to know "This is a spell" ?

Thanks !

Nope. Inner Sea Races is very much in line with Inner Sea Gods, gathering up all the info and polishing them up from previous sources.

I'm not really a fan of the crossblooded mechanic at all, actually. Sticking with one bloodline is stronger and more interesting in my opinion.

Not sure. I'd have to read up on all of those things, but in the end they wouldn't be changelings, since they have a VERY specific way of coming about. It'd be a toss-up between skinwalker, huamn, or natural human werebear.

Most of these races would be CGI or practical effects work in a movie, and wouldn't be portrayed by actors. And those who WOULD be portrayed by actors are so varied that you can't just pick one. Succubi, nabasu, hezrou, dretch, and balors are all demons, but they wouldn't be played by the same actor.

The question is too vague and unfocused to answer, in other words.

That's possible but not equally likely. Pretty unlikely, in fact.

Yes; the magic lights and runes and such are always visible. That's why you can't just "hide" a spell being cast by muttering or using subdued hand gestures. You need feats to do that, like Still Spell or Silent Spell or Spellsong or whatever. Those visual cues are as much what allows you to identify a spell being cast as are the magic words and all the rest.

Anyone would know you're casting a spell, in the same way when an archer draws an arrow and aims it at you he might be getting ready to shoot you, or in the same way a barbarian who raises his axe is about to chop you.

You only need Spellcraft to identify the exact KIND of spell.

Lets say, same question but..
a.) A bythos aeon.

c.) The good dependable kolyraut.
d. ) A leukodaemon.
e.) Devils, hrm, what about an osyluth?

g.) A bralani, azata.
h.) An imentesh, protean.

1. Why is a Qlippoth blooded tiefling even a possibility? Seems pretty much anathema of a Qlippoth that they would a) Not slaughter a humanoid long enough to mate with it, and b) purposefully reproduce soul-possessing life which could lead to further demons in the grand scheme, especially considering, c) Unlike most humanoid-shaped fiends, their bodies do not exactly, ahem, lend themselves to the task...

2. Pretty much the same question with the Linnorm wildblooded sorcerer archetype as well. I can wrap my head around true dragons mixing it up with humanoids, given their shapechanging abilities and spellcasting, but Linnorms don't really shapechange, and a human is the size of a linnorm's claw...And their disposition to humanoids isn't exactly favorable.

Another Qlippoth question. Since you have said a few times before Rovagug is a Qlippoth, and he is very obviously one of the most powerful gods given it took an entire alliance of gods to bring him down...why do Qlippoth Lords require obtaining souls and becoming Demon Lords to ascend in power level equivalent of Demon Lords? Obviously the precident for Qlippoth more powerful than Demons exists.

Sorry I wasn't more clear in my previous post.

I honestly don't know. Even narrowed down to specific monsters, a creature's personality can vary SO MUCH. It's possible to assign an actor to a specific named NPC, but not so much a race. That's like asking "What actor would you choose to play a human character?"

1) Because the multiverse is full of all sorts of possibilities, and it's possible for a non-qlippoth to become impregnated by a qlippoth, or a non-qlippoth to become infused with Abyssal energies, or to get cursed, or whatever. Not all qlippoth adhere to the generalized racial norm; there are some who have their own agendas. Further, I wouldn't put it past a mad wizard or crazed priest to conjure up and control qlippoth and force them to breed or infest or whatever other creatures for their own vile plots. In other words... if you're not coming up with a way that a qlippoth tiefling might come about... your imagination simply isn't being deviant and vile and horrific and nasty enough. ;-)

2) Again.... magic. Being sprayed with a linnorm's blood while standing in a ley-line nexus between the First World and the Material Plane in the round after you're restored to life via a spell might be enough to influence your bloodline with linnorm influence, for example. The ways in which a creature's "DNA" can get into another's is as limitless as the imagination, and does not require sex to happen.

Yes. The magic is still obviously coming from that character. Spellsong is a feat that hides this effect. There's others. It's not a super common ability we give out though.

Rovagug is an exception to the rule. He may well be the FIRST qlippoth, for example, in which case the rest of the qlippoth race might just be his leavings or parasites that fell off his body or idle thoughts that leaked from his mind or whatever. More to the point, since we don't quantify how gods form and what lets them do what they do, we don't have to justify why one is more powerful than another. It's just the way it is. And frankly, the more we explain about it, the less mysterious it gets, and thus the less interesting it becomes.

I would think for some of these, no human's normal speaking voice would sound like them, so the question is probably still hard to answer.

Why wouldn't they? Sex is as important a thing in Golarion as it is in the real world. The fact that our real-world society freaks out about depictions of sex in entertainment and thus limits our ability as a publisher to explore that genre in print without facing legal issues or enraged customers or whatever doesn't change that fact.

I get that as well. My response remains the same. It's not an easy question to answer. I can say, for example, that I imagine the voice of Khorramzadeh the Storm King to sound like Tony Todd... but I wouldn't say all balors sound like Tony Todd.
