If someone uses a Supernatural Ability (such as a hex) do they know if their hex succeeded of failed? The rules on saving throws state that you know if your spell fails, but no mention is made of what happens with Su abilities.

Rules questions should be asked in the rules questions forum; sorry.

Someone posted the question there actually and nothing official could be found that would satisfy the GM.

Thanks for the quick response!

No need for replies here; let's keep it to (non-rules) questions. (And I understand folks' frustration if the rules team isn't as quick at answering questions there as I might be here, but it is what it is... and it's why it's best for GMs to develop the self-confidence to make rulings as make sense for their own preferences and games rather than worry too much about what might be "official.")


I told Owen Stephens that I think that dinosaur is your lich form, is that true?

Seriously though, I hope you found that cool.

Few other questions:

Many of the main Golarion deities are female(Desna, Sarenrae, Iomadae, Shelyn, Lamashtu), was this a conscious decision on your(and others) part, or is it just an awesome coincidence?

I notice there's no true 'spirit of the earth' deity like Gaia/Demeter for example. Is there a particular reason such doesn't exist?

There's been a bunch of campaign setting books for various Inner Sea nations lately, is there any nation you would like to see get a 64 page book soon? If so, which?


Is there any ideia or thoughts/feelings about a new edition for Pathfinder? (I hope not! Just wondering... :P )

Dinosaur ≠ lich, so no... not true as far as I can tell.

We wanted as close to a 50/50 split between male and female deities among the core 20. The fact that it seems like there's a lot of female deities when in fact it's not QUITE half (it's actually 8.5, counting Gozreh as the .5... I would have PREFERRED it to be 10.5 female, with Nethys being female and Cayden Cailean being female, but I lost that fight) is a great argument for why it's important to strive for equality in gender representation.

We chose not to go with a Gaia type deity because we wanted our nature faiths to go a different route (Green Faith, Gozreh, etc.).

Yes, but since I'm part of the group that decides what books get published, I can't answer "what I'd like to see" without inadvertently revealing "what might be coming soon" and perhaps disappointing people who take "what I'd like to see" as a promise and who then get angry when said book never happens.

Interesting.

Why'd you want Cayden and Nethys female?

How would they feel about being depicted as female (or other gendered) by worshipers?

So is Zyphus technically an ascended petitioner?

Becasue in my homebrew, the deities that map closest to those two deities are female. (Actually, in my homebrew, I have 3 deities of magic; good, neutral, and evil magic... but the good deity of magic is the most powerful and the most interesting of the 3).

To be more precise, I wanted our core 20 deities to have more than half female deities. I was hoping for 11 female and 9 male. But I wasn't the only person making those decisions, so I'm just glad that there's 8.5. Still not half, but better than most settings.

I'm not sure we've said where he came from in print, off the top of my head.

In my homebrew, he's one of the newer creations—and not a deity that I'd done much work fleshing out, but he was always more or less intended to fill the role of the "Grim Reaper" in my homebrew. He was, in other words, a personification of the act of dying and a force for causing more death, rather than Pharasma, who was a goddess not of dying but of the dead. Thus, he's evil, while Pharasma was Lawful Neutral in my homebrew (and had a different name).

Keep wondering! As with all things great and small, be they new editions or new blog posts, this thread isn't the place to make announcements big or small. We've got our hands full with launching Starfinder for now in any case while at the same time continuing to do Pathfinder stuff, so if you're looking for a new game, make sure to check that out come Gen Con!


What were the logistics involved in Taldor's Sixth Army of Exploration? Did they bribe Nex's Arclords for access to the Ndele gap, or were Taldor so powerful at this point that they could just ignore them and marched straight on through on their ownsome?

Complex, and not something I've really devoted any time thinking about. Pathfinder doesn't model mass combat well, and so I very much prefer to handle mass combat in the form of story rather than rules.

That said, they didn't go through Nex. They went down Garund's west coast from what is now Cheliax, and approached the Mwangi from the not-yet-flooded Abendego Coast. So Nex wasn't involved at all.

Well iirc according to his church Zyphus is first mortal who suffered meaningless tragic death and he rebelled against Pharasma due to that. Thats why I was wondering if he is technically an ascended petitioner

Sounds to me like he became a deity BECAUSE in part he rebelled against the whole procedure of life-death-judgement-petitioner. So no... he was never a petitioner.

Ok! I'll keep wondering and now I guess Pathfinder 2nd edition will be real in a shortest time than I thought...

Sadly, I cannot go so easily to Gen Con, Brazil is waaaaayyy too far away (and overpriced flyght tickets) :P

I'll look the news in August! Thanks!

Now that we've had shows such as "Drunk History" and "High" Court, do you think there's room for "Drunk DM"? Have you ever been or been run by a Drunk DM?

I've never been a drunk GM, nor have I played a game with a drunk GM, but I think that the idea is not a great one, since to a certain extent it's the GM who runs the game we publish. If we put a year of hard work into creating the perfect adventure and supplements and rules, and then a drunk GM ruins it for his players, and then his players assume that Paizo doesn't know what they're doing... that's a bad situation.

Now... seeing a drunk GM run something of his OWN design... from game rules on down to adventure... that might be a different story.

But no, I'm not eager to see a Drunk GM thing.

And not just because I kinda felt that Drunk History was obnoxious and embarrassing and annoying. But that certainly helps form my opinion.


Hello Mr. Jacobs, first thank you for your work at paizo on pathfinder and the golarion setting, it's really amazing.

I have a question and a suggestion (or more like a little something i'd like to bring to the golarion world).

First the question : can aninal companion put themselves in total defense, if so, does it would take a trick slot to make them do so (and if so, what would be the handle animal DC?).

And for the suggestion: me and a couple of friends recently started the crimson throne campaign, and I started the play playing a ranger from the sable company that's the daughter of Marcus Endrin, lord of the Endrin family (was my GMs idea). And after reading about the noble houses of Korvosa, I've come to realise that all of the major houses had House Crests designed for them in the "Guide to Korvosa", but even if house Endrin played a somewhat very big role in the defense of Korvosa over the years, they did'nt have a family crest. So I just made one, by taking parts of existing crest of the Sable Company & The city's guards. It's right there :

https://postimg.org/image/g3yye9ycf/

And I was wondering if you would do me the honor of accepting it as the official crest for House Endrin, so that it could be put on the different wikis about the golarion world (and maybe in my widlest dream, in a futur version of a book about Korvosa).

Thank you for your time and consideration

Rules questions should be directed first to your GM, second to the rules forum. I prefer answering rules questions to my players... answering them here tends to confuse things when the rules answers need to come from one source (the design team).

And while I do love it when gamers add to what we create to make the setting their own, and when GMs and players alike expand upon the setting in their home games, I can't actually "officially accept things" in the way you're asking... In fact, I prefer to let fan creations bloom and prosper on their own and try not to get involved in them at all for a combination of time management and legal reasons. Awesome that you made one though!

Hi James,

I was wondering if you have more information about the Vhiski brothers that you would be willing to share?

I am creating a third brother (the eldest brother) for my PC in a Council of Thieves campaign and was hoping to research more about Jubrayl and Sandru to tie them into his backstory.

And maybe a little frustrated that, as with the last several books I've developed, I wasn't able to gauge customer excitement/interest/requests via these boards to make fine tune adjustments to the book as I developed because we waited so long to announce it...

All the information about them that I have to share is in print. They were created 100% for the adventures and books they appear in, and there's not really any further thoughts I have on them that wouldn't just be me making stuff up off the top of my head. So for now, nope! Sorry.

Let's go with some non-pathfinder questions! If you don't mind that is!

How are you?

Any songs you've been particular to lately?

What's a food you are craving lately? And if unhealthy, do you have a healthier supplement? (I think I read you were dieting, feel free to correct me if I am wrong)

Do you have any favorite type of questions to answer?

Latest movie you watched? Good or bad?

And last one (And PF related), if you had a limitless amount of money to make a single Adventure Path into a movie, which one would you want to make into a movie?

Hope you have a good day!

Kinda worn out and grumpy.

None in particular.

Cinnamon roll french toast. Which is NOT healthy. A healthier food I'm craving right this instant would be raspberries. And I'm not dieting now so much as just trying to eat healthy overall.

I like answering questions that are thought-provoking and unexpected.

Kong: Skull Island (it was INCREDIBLY AWESOME!)

Hell's Rebels.

Hi James

How do you rate Skull Island versus the Legendary Godzilla from a couple of years ago. Better or worse?

I really enjoyed Kong Skull Island, and actually thought the human element was better this time around, and the tone was a lot more fun. Would be curious on your thoughts.

I liked Godzilla better. Mostly because Godzilla is a better monster than Kong, but also because Godzilla didn't have a weird tonal disconnect like Kong does...

Spoiler:
The comedy elements involving John C. Reily, while funny, detract from the movie more than the non-acting of the main actor of Godzilla. The fact that he was surrounded by better actors helped... but if they'd reversed his character's role and the wife's role and made him the nurse and her the bomb expert, the movie would have been close to perfect.

How much comedy value could you manufacture from Shensen meeting this interpretation of Kong?

In one of the newest PFS scenarios, Wardens of Sulfur Gulch, the group rescues an original survivor of the spaceship that crashed into Golarion thousands of years ago.

At the end of the scenario, her memory is fully restored.

The fact that the camerawork was stable and had long takes and allowed the viewer to enjoy the action rather than being fast and chaotic and sloppy, as in a movie like Transformers.

Favorite and second favorite human characters would be the ones played by Sam Jackson and Brie Larson. Third favorite is probably John Goodman, but Shea Whigham's character was pretty cool too. Tom Hiddleston's character had the best INTRO of all of the characters, though... but never lived up to that intro.

I did indeed contain my whoop, because I'm not a fan of noisy people in theaters (even after the movie is over), and so I try not to add to that by being noisy. That's kinda the same for anywhere though.

Since Androffa is my homebrew campaign/setting, and since I threw it into the game as a personal easter egg to explain to myself how Droffa (the "An" in "Androffa" is what it was called 10,000 some years ago, before they had their own end of the world/rebirth event) and Golarion have such a similar vibe in as much as sharing many deities and villians and NPCs and locations.

I'm not eager to reveal more about Androffa, though, and have specifically avoided things like putting Androffan characters into adventures and products I create where those characters remember and recall life on Androffa, because I'm kinda at the point where I feel like I've sold enough of my homebrew off to other companies like Paizo or Wizards of the Coast.

As a result, don't expect any more information from me about Androffa anytime soon. I'm okay with others at Paizo expanding on the planet if they want, but I'd rather it be their work, not mine, to build it into another thing entirely.

AKA: Make modern Androffa what you want, because if I made it, it would look weirdly identical to a lot of stuff on Golarion which would weird too many people out.

What I can tell you is what was in Iron Gods or the Technology Guide... at the time they launched Divinity, they were arrogant humans who felt themselves to be like gods. Today, their culture pretty much no longer exists on Androffa in that way; their culture there is more or less exactly like the culture you see on Golarion with various ethnicities and all that. There's more of Androffa on Golarion today than there is on Droffa today.


I have finally gotten through reading the Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition, and the parts on Thassalonian magic confused me. If the 'opposition schools' are outright forbidden and unable to be used by those who practice Thassalonian magic.

How is it that Sorshen is thematically connected to vampires, blood-magic, and immortality when the fact she is the Runelord of Lust prevents her from accessing the necromancy and transmutation schools?

It seems like the Everdawn Pool was far too limiting and time-consuming to be a primary source of casting necromancy and transmutation spells, or was Sorshen's power and knowledge of the artifact sufficient to bypass the limits on charges that Ileosa and the PCs have?
