I personally can agree that as a developer it's been incredibly difficult to keep track of the hundreds, if not thousands, of feats, traits, spells, items, etc.

Are the repair drone in Fires of Creation and the repair robot in Construct Handbook supposed to be the same thing? They have different numbers of limbs but their stat blocks are almost identical.

For the most part, yes. The intention was that one was a variant.

Neither. I use roux and time. I do add okra sometimes, but not for the purposes of thickening anything. I only use filé on my gumbo once it's in the bowl.

About how much roux for your preferred amount of vegetables and broth?

I use 1/2 cup flour/oil for one pepper, one onion, and ~3 celery ribs plus maybe ~5 cups broth, and I'm starting to think that's not enough roux.
I think I dropped the roux amount to make things less fatty overall? Skimming's always an option, though!

I don't really know because I don't measure. I just keep adding until the taste and color is right.

I cook my roux until it looks like rich chocolate. Much like this.

Is the auwaz couatl based on any real life mythological character or creature?

I'm not sure. That couatl was written and designed by Luis Loza.


Page 67 of Tower of the Drowned Dead talks about the celebrated capital of Azlant, the so-called City of Golden Gates. This must be a nickname, not a real name. What is the name of the capital of Azlant, then? Have the developers already made a name for it? I really with its name is not simply Azlant. The capital of Azlant absolutely deserves a whole new name!

We've never put a name in print. Erik wrote that article, so he might have an idea of what the name of the city is, but since he didn't add that to the article I'm betting that he wasn't ready to have it in print or didn't already have a name selected.


I was curious if you know (or had a head canon) which “criminal syndicate” was “exploiting” Rodric’s Cove that Jana G. ford to? Was it a crime boss? An unaffiliated criminal organization? Are they a Riddleport-specific thing, or just kind of happen to be in the area? (Like an unofficial arm of the Aspis Consortium or something, maybe called the “Cindersnake Aquirers” or whatever; not necessarily that name or group, but as an example.)

And how does that work, exactly?
Is it something like:
- OFFICIALLY: the ‘Cove pays protection money “taxes” to Riddleport
- UNOFFICIALLY: JG Sr. was skimming the “taxes” and sharing with <crime group>
?

It’s an interesting tidbit I’m interested in weaving into background material as we play through Second Darkness, but is love to know how such things fit in. Thanks!

Oh hey! Sorry I missed this. But... I saw that you got an answer from James in his thread, and my answer would be no different.

However, minor correction. It was Jess Gildersleeves, Jana's mom, who was doing the skimming.


Whoops! Sorry! And thanks!

Yeah, I realized I didn't know how busy/available you were, so I copied the question there (figuring it might generate different answers anyway - and if not, that would be fine).

Thank you for taking the time!

How's it going?

It's going okay. Just trying to get back into the swing of things after Gen Con madness.

I have no idea what you're talking about, but I am currently not wearing any sort of headware. :)

I have a couple Arcadia questions (hi from Twitter!), if that’s alright?

I’m curious about modern Razatlan, in terms of how much continuity it has compared to the maybe-oppressive Razatlan Empire from before Earthfall. Is it still the largest nation on the continent? Is it a “villain state” like Cheliax, or a little more neutral and approachable?

What’s the broad strokes on the Land of Northern Lakes? We know they’re skymetal innovators and nothing else by canon, but I’m curious if they have a little more shape and identity in your head.

If you had to pitch an Arcadian AP, what would the start look like?

Anything terribly exciting and different for Ancestries in the region? We know there’s at least some of the corebook Ancestries on the continent, along with wyrwoods and a few lycanthrope-y peoples (Skinwalkers and Rougarou).

Anywhere not on the map yet that we might hope to see soon, in terms of unnamed regions and nations? I get if you can’t spoil or commit to this.

Thank you

Also; who might I gently pester if I had questions about Garund, especially from the Mwangi Expanse on south?


If a lich is a skeletal version of itself,
And a flumph has no skeleton,
What would a flumph lich look like?

Would a bug lich of some sort look like an exoskeleton?
Does that mean shedinja is a lich?
(Warning: that link leads to bulbapedia. Terrifying.)

How much wood would a flumph chuck chuck?

First, sorry for not getting to this sooner. I read it one day here at work and then got busy and forgot to come back to this thread.

I'm also gonna say that I try not to make definitive statements about things that aren't in print, so go into my answers knowing that they are just what I'm thinking at the moment. I also don't tend to nail things down until I've actually written it, so some of my answers might be vague or unsatisfying.

Modern Razatlan doesn't resemble the old empire much these days. The focus of the nation is very different from continental conquest and subjugation. I'd say it's probably the largest nation on the continent (or at least the northern part of the continent), so it has the same kind of problems large nations face, but it isn't much a "villain state" like Cheliax.

In my mind, the Land of Northern Lakes is a very industrial and technologically advanced collective of city states. They mine skymetals in the area and even dive the lakes to retrieve the materials they use for their machines. There's probably one or two of the city states that is in decline or is corrupt or something.

I have no idea how I would start an Arcadian AP or what it would entail.

I've thought about a bug person ancestry for the continent, and I'm pretty sure that my notes contain some other ideas, but I can't think of them at the moment. (I'd also like to either leave out skinwalkers or refashion them in some way. Even though I did the work on making them in 1e, I was following a directive and the name never sat well with me.)

Most nations on the map are unnamed, so there would be plenty, but not anytime soon.

Liches aren't strictly skeletal, it's just that that's often the only bits left after a really long time. I think a lich flumph would be a gross deflated-looking thing until its skin got all leathery and then started flaking away. It's spikes would be preserved I guess. Hmmm.

Yes, a bug lich would look like an exoskeleton.

No comment on shedinja. I don't know enough about them.

As much wood as it could.

I really appreciate the reply! Dying to see an Arcadia book someday - and hopefully soon!


Adam,

What is your favorite post that has been eaten by the digital void that you still recall (if any), and should I bother trying to remember the one that I was posting here a few days back and was eaten by a digital void or just in Frozen accent let it go?

Hmmm, I can't recall any, and you probably shouldn't bring undue distress to yourself trying to remember something that you can't retrieve.


Wise words from master of flumphs and bugs!
