If yes, what kind of campaign, and what kind of character do you have.

Also, have a pleasant Wednesday, and stay dry. :-)

Well, I was in a few campaigns that are currently on hiatus, because everyone at Paizo's busy as hell:

--James Jacobs' Horror on the Orient Express game (wealthy flapper)
--Owen Stephens' Giantslayer game (ifrit fire sorcerer)
--My Mummy's Mask game (GM)

I am currently in Wes's semi-regular Kingdom Death game. (You don't play one specific character in Kingdom Death.)

Oh oh oh, what's been your favourite moment in KD so far?

I always enjoy playing games James is running. <3

Was the Monastery of the Seven Forms that's changed hands between Taldor and Qadira several times over its history your creation?

Aww! Well, you always class up my games with fire and awesome, so the feeling is mutual!

Nope. I think that came out of an early PFS scenario.

Well, given that KD is largely a game about how characters die horribly, probably the part where we're playing with Amanda (one of our developers) and Rick (our webstore manager) and they're so good at it that instead of dying horribly, our community has thrived, and we got an innovation where kids inherit their parents' weapon proficiencies, so our little settlement now has a family of monster-slaying badasses.

This is not, you know, how the game is supposed to go. :-)

Ohhh... I dunno. We're not done yet, and there's PLENTY of time for some event to cause Amanda and Rick's characters to kill each other and unleash a memory phage that not only wipes out our community's ability to inherent their weapon proficiencies, and also maybe give us all face melting fever.

I have faith the game will not let us down! :-)

Holy crap, yes. Didn't think of that, but yeah, it's likely illegal in most satrapies.

Yeah, from what you've written it seems Kelesh loves horses the way Ferelden loves dogs.

Have you played Dragon Age?

I have! And yes, Keleshites view their horses as family members, essentially.

I just noticed in my newly arrived copy of the Healer's Handbook that you were its project manager. I just wanted to say thank you for such a magnificent book! The sheer volume of options it gives to make healing interesting is a joy to me! Thank you so much!

Oh. Still, thank you! Also, quick question about the new Order of the Saddle from your Qadira book: one of its edicts is that the only meat a Saddle Cavalier may consume must be from animals that were humanely raised and slaughtered. So does that mean they're not allowed to hunt and eat wild animals (assuming of course that they don't do crap like hunting for sport and overhunting)?

Project Manager

Assuming they can kill a wild animal with a single headshot or some other method ensuring it doesn't have time to be afraid or suffer, that'd be fine. Traps, etc. would be out, though.

No question but I just finished the Qadira book. I was really looking forward to it and it didn't disappoint. One of the really strong entries in the CS line, IMO. (And that's from a "traditional western fantasy/Tolkien" fan).

I liked every section and especially the way you managed to anchor it both within the Inner Sea and as part of Kelesh. It fleshed out a lot of the IS's history and really whet the appetite for more Casmaron material. I didn't realise it, but I now want a mercantile AP travelling the Golden Path and building influence throughout the empire.

This was a thoroughly good book. Thanks!

Nah, I've got Sarenrae on my business cards and I'm pretty happy with that. :-)

Any similarities to Miss Phryne Fisher?

And, on a completely different note, is it weird that Ymeri's almost got the same name as a Norse mythology giant created from the frost of Niflheim?

Not really. I mean, I didn't make her up, so I don't know for sure that there was no intentional connection, there, but when you're making a lot of fantasy names up, especially when they're short, there's always going to be overlap. There just aren't that many sounds in English. (I mean, this is the sort of coincidence that happens all the time in languages and gives rise to crackpot theories like "Welsh is related to ancient Hebrew!" because they have a couple words that sound roughly the same and mean roughly the same thing.)

Who's Miss Phryne Fisher?

(Jumping in for a bit... as the creator of Ymeri's name, I can confirm that her name has nothing to do with the Norse mythology giant. It's just coincidence, precisely due to the reasons Jessica mentions with the limited number of sounds in English that exist.)

Bing or Google?

The bing points have me hooked.

Prior to the Qadira book, it was Elemental (Fire). :-) The Solar bloodline's a bit less user-friendly, I think. I like it, obviously, but I'd still recommend the elemental bloodline for someone playing a sorcerer for the first time.

Just needs a better GUI. Something goblin-friendly would be fine!
