Ok, rephrase, if D&D went up for sale, would you, James Jacobs, like to see Paizo acquire it?
Me? No. This time 7 years ago I would have absolutely said yes. But having put this much work into Pathifnder, I'm too fond and proud of it to cast it aside to "buy D&D" and go forward with that. And I respect D&D too much to want to try to turn it into a "Pathfinder game" if that makes any sense.
This makes me wonder. If you obtained the license for DnD stuff, would you be Creative Director for all of it, or would you be the Creative Director for just Golarion?

I would assume I'd be the Creative Director for all of it, since that's what I am currently—I'm not just in charge of Golarion's creative direction.

1. What's the chance of us seeing a serious version of St. Nicholas the Giver?

2. I like the idea of St Nicholas being a mythic human, a good aligned Earth human, similar to Baba Yaga in terms of build. I can also see him as an empyreal lord. Which do you think would work beat in the Inner Sea?

1) Very slim.

2) I suppose I'd make him into a mythic human or some sort of fey.

James, are their any plans to do an official Paizo Pathfinder Thief-Acrobat character class, or should we use the LPJ version or simply use the Acrobat Archetype to fill that Unearthed Arcana niche? I'm perfectly fine using either of the two I mentioned. Since you guys did a great Cavalier, and of course Barbarian (I love Amiri). I call these the D&D cartoon classes.

No plans.

Yes. More than one, in fact, depending on region and/or religion.

James, one of my players found out Golarion has printing presses and is interested in buying one. The single page press has already been priced in the Adventurer's Army, but there doesn't seem to be an official price for a movable type press. What do you think the suitable amount of GP needed to buy one would be?

I'd probably peg it at 1,500 gp. Mabye even 2,000 gp or 2,500 gp. It should be significant, since it's a complex machine. (I picked 1,500 gp as a baseline because that's what a suit of full plate costs, which is also a complex thing that changes society.)


Magic Dinosaur, I ask for guidance!

1. Antimagic field does not affect artifacts or deities. Does it affect a) supernatural abilities gained from mythic tiers, b) Legendary Items or c) demi-gods like demon lords?

2. What class/mythic path combo was Aroden before he ascended to a full deity?

3. Before he became a 5 domain deity, how did Aroden fight? What sort of spells (if any), feats and path abilities were favourites of his?

4. Even if you never reveal it, do you actually know how Aroden died?

5. What did Shelyn use as a weapon before she got her brother's weapon?

6. Zon-Kuthon was promised a treasure from the first vault by Abadar if he stayed in the plane of shadow until the sun left the sky. What did he pick come the age of darkness?

So I sort of did something tonight that caught my GM for a loop and now I'm trying to figure out how to prevent myself from getting killed. Could you take a look at my situation and lend me some Knowledge (System Mastery) checks?

Spoiler:

In the campaign that I play in, we sort of just threw a wrench into my GM's plans. We've been under the thumb of a major Pirate Lord for most of our settlement's history (almost a year). Specifically, he finds ways to bleed us of our money so we can't rise up against him. He sent one of his top captains, a rakshasa, to visit us. I figured out the rakshasa's game quickly and I gave the order for our kingdom leaders (all badass PCs / cohorts) to assassinate him, which we did.

Now, if we just announce that we killed this rakshasa, there's a small chance that the Pirate Lord will admire our stones, but more likely he'll drive his full fleet of 100 ships into our port and massacre all of us (and our innocent townsfolk) on the spot because we're too risky to keep around. We don't have the monetary or military strength to stand up to him, so my character being the tricky kitsune that he is came up with a plane where he would impersonate the captain so we could gain strength right under the Pirate Lord's nose. The Pirate King is very hands-off in terms of his captains, so I might be able to essentially cover for our settlement so we can build our strength to the point where we could try and pull a coup. The captain that we killed as at least 28,000 gp in liquid wealth that is how ours, so I was planning on investing that wealth in magic items that would let me play the part of a rakshasa better.

The problem? Virtually ALL of the magical spells and effects that I've found won't let you transform into an outsider. Even a native one. Disguise self says that you can't change creature types via the disguise and alter self is specifically humanoids only. And even if I could find a magical way to do this, as far as I can find there's nothing that'll thwart a simple casting of true seeing, meaning one easily-accessible 4th level spell could ruin my ruse. What do you think?

1) a) Yes. b) Not if they have become artifacts. c) No.

2) Aroden was a wizard in life. We haven't revealed what mythic path he took, or indeed if he even TOOK a mythic path.

3) He favored melee fighting, in fact, and preferred to fight with a sword and shield, using magic to bolster his combat or for ranged attacks.

4) I do.

5) Unrevealed.

6) Unrevealed.

7) Hmmmm... Deskari is hands-down the weakest of the four, and Cthulhu is the hardest to actually kill. In a few months you'll have stats for all four, though, so you'll be able to run the numbers then! :D

8) We haven't revealed what other Great Old Ones will be in Bestiary 4 yet... but that's some pretty solid detective work.

True seeing isn't a 4th level spell, and it costs money on top of that. But if you're paranoid about true seeing looking through a disguise, don't use magic. Use a physical Disguise, bolstering your Disguise check via other methods. Or perhaps use a mind controlled minion?

Oh ... oh my. You're absolutely right. I have no idea why I thought it was a 4th level spell! And I could spend that gold on a bunch of items that give me competence bonuses and/or insight bonuses on Disguise checks instead, maybe get a headband of vast intellect that grants me ranks in Disguise too while I'm at it. I could get so good at mundane Disguises that no one could ever tell the difference!

By that logic, would a character who took divine source and got people to worship him be immune to anti-magic field like a demi-god. Remember, if he picks it three times he has just as many domains as a demon lord, horse man, archdevil or celestial lord.

I am not James, but I suspect Raiders of the Fever Sea (AP #56), and the fiction for Legacy of Fire (#23 in particular) would be the best sources for stuff on Golarion merfolk.


Ah HA! I recently found the playable races in the Inner Sea Bestiary. Thought you could hid them from me did you? I have but ONE question concerning them!

I would say no.

But frankly? This pretty much turned into a question for the rules boards for a FAQ, since I am pretty sure this isn't a corner case anyone thought of when they were considering how mythic characters interact with antimagic.

It's not something we've done a lot with yet... but basically, merfolk are similar to gillmen in that they've got links to strange and sinister masters.

Ah; yeah, there's times when the backstory can get in the way of the rules expectations.

To a certain extent we wrestled with that for our iconics, but we elected to play a bit fast and loose since their backstories could just as easily be what they accomplished during their lower levels—remember that these iconics aren't just iconic 1st level characters. They're iconic 20th level ones too, and everythin in between.

When making other NPCs or new PCs, yeah, it's good to keep the list of their previous accomplishments limited in scope. And for a PC in particular, this lets you build the bulk of her personality in actual game play... which is better anyway!

That's WAY TOO complicated to justify the character. If he's going to embrace his Shoanti heritage, don't have him be a paladin of Sarenrae, have him be a barbarian or ranger. If he's going to be a Knight in Shining Armor type, don't try to connect him to the Shoanti. You can't have your cake and eat it, and you can't try to cover ALL the AP's narrative bases with a single character."

Umm for those of you questioning whether you could bring back Aroden with a simple True Ressurection, I have a logic question for you. Iomedae was the divine servant of Aroden she was a deity at the time of his death, and know what Iomedae stands for do you not think if she could bring him back she wouldn't? Do you not think that if Iomedae knew what happened to Aroden she would stay idle about it? James am I making any sort of logical sense?

Silver Crusade

What you're saying is that Iomedae likely tried rezzing him herself, and the fact that a god's effort didn't work bodes ill for mortals attempting the same?

And if you ever get high enough to worry about True Seeing, you can pool money to get Sequestration, or possibly Mind Blank+Invisibility.

Or Invisible Obscuring Mist (much cheaper and easier!)

As someone that has wrestled with two different heritages in real life, you can, in fact, have your cake and eat it too. I don't see anything wrong with the paladin wanting to learn more about his Shoanti culture, though still playing up the awkwardness of meeting other Shoanti and the feelings of not quite being "Shoanti" enough for them. I think it's perfect.

I just don't want to write like a hack. That's my deepest fear of all time, writing anything, even if it's just a character background, only for it to be dismissed as "hack-work." I know that it's a game, it's for fun and all, but a better written character surely has a better chance of being accepted into a game or a play-by-post, right?

Invisible. Obscuring. Mist.

Invisible Obscuring Mist blocks vision for anyone using See Invisibility or True Seeing.

If you are worried about True Seeing, throw out some invisible obscuring mist, and then no one can see past it without turning off their true seeing (at which point they fall prey to the illusion that true seeing was suppose to protect them from).

It is a cheaper/lower-level alternative to Sequestration or Mind Blank.

Of course it depends on the Invisible Spell feat being allowed. Even if it is, you're still going to want something better eventually--someone who sees your invisible obscuring mist could simply blow it away (though they'll have to use an action doing it...)
