Either way, people's home games can be whatever. It's not like we're going to swoop in from Redmond and force folks to make certain decisions.

Also, that's not to say that I don't like that element of fantasy RPGs. I had a ton of fun in my home group's Planescape game where everyone was something weird, it's just when you focus in on certain places in material worlds where things need to have some sort of baseline, and for real Earth humans, that baseline is humans.

That suddenly makes me wonder... Are there any RPGs (fantasy or scifi) that don't have humans as a race that people can play?

Bunnies & Burrows & Mouse Guard come to mind.

Atlas Games' Furry Pirates?

Nothing we've announced is set there, but who knows what kind of crazy stuff we might have planned for the future?

1) Aberrant, fey, undead, starsoul, and celestial

2) Community, liberation, luck, travel, trickery

3) A long time ago a few of my friends would do one-shots where we played monsters. It's fun.

I've liked each one I've met so far.

I don't have a favorite food, at least not a single favorite. I'm bad at picking favorites.
Same as above, but if I could only have one thing to drink for the rest of my life I'd choose water.
I have. At least I think that's what it was doing.

those are my non paizo questions, because you are human too. Paizo questions are:

More racial stuff! I love the ARG, but I want to see a backround generator for those races! This saddens me

I would love to hear more about the iconic inquisitor.

I would also like to know why some races get fancy exclusive weapons and others don't.

Maybe some more bard stuffs? Like sockpuppets! Sockpuppets are deadly weapons

Not too many questions in here. I can't speak much to the Advanced Race Guide since that's not the product line I work on, and that book came out before I was on staff.

I can however shed some more light on Imrijka the iconic inquisitor.

I don't think there is any hard and fast design distinction about when races get unique weapons or not. I'm sure that the flavor of the race is the major factor, especially if that race has unusual anatomy or some other defining characteristic.

When you get back, will you mention what the best part of that Texan Con that you went to this weekend was?

Silver Crusade

Asked James this, thought I'd ask you too:

Curse of the Crimson Throne is kicked off by each PC receiving a Harrow card that corresponds to both their highest ability score and their alignment. A CN ranger with a high Dexterity gets The Rabbit Prince, for example, while the NG wizard with high Intelligence gets The Wanderer card.

What happens if the PC is Multi-Ability-Dependent, and they have no single attribute that's dominant? For example, if a paladin's highest scores are an equal Strength and Charisma that are both 16, which card does he/she get? The Paladin (LG STR) or The Empty Throne (LG CHA)? How do you, either in your capacity as a developer or a GM, decide how the Harrowing affects PCs with two or more equal high scores, and thus no dominant Harrow suit?

I just got back into the office from Comicpalooza today. It was a great weekend! The convention was much bigger than I expected and there were tons of awesome guests there. I had the most fun talking with people and meeting new people. I also enjoyed silently geeking out at all the celebrities there. At one point I was at a party and there were two Doctors standing right beside me, and Sunday night I ended up hanging out with Miltos Yerolemou who played Syrio Forel in the first season of Game of Thrones.

Man, I don't have a good answer for you. It's been ages since I've looked back at Crimson Throne or the Harrow rules or connections to it. I'd say just go with your gut and make the decision that seems to make the most sense. Wish I could be more helpful.

Does a character who's a member of a particular organization NEED to have levels in the Prestige Class associated with it, or can they get away with it through roleplay, like, say, a cleric of Iomedae who wants to be a Knight of Ozem but doesn't take levels in the actual Knight of Ozem prestige class because they don't want to lose spellcasting progression, or a Pathfinder that doesn't take levels in the Pathfinder Chronicler, Delver, Field Agent or Savant prestige classes because they're interested in a different prestige class like Arcane Archer or something?

It just feels to me like the minute an organization gets an official Prestige Class for it, you can't be a REAL member of that organization in-game without taking levels in it, that without the Prestige Class to PROVE you're in the organization, all you have is your say-so, and that negates the idea that it takes effort to join these organizations.

Nah, someone can be a Hellknight without having levels in one of the Hellknight prestige classes, and someone can be a Knight of Ozem without having levels in that prestige class. Otherwise that has the chance to tie your hands when it comes to the kind of story you want to tell. Perhaps consider the prestige classes a more focused member of an organization.


Regarding your article on the Fate patron. Is that patron restricted to Baba Yaga and Winter Witches, or is it generally available to any other Witches (even those outside the Reign of Winter AP)?

While it is certainly thematically linked to Baba Yaga, it's not exclusive to her or the Reign of Winter AP.

Not sure. I had it for the first time last night, and it was the first Irish whiskey I actually liked. It has a nice spiciness to it.

That's a big question. I' not that great with broad predictions, but I certainly hope that it'll be bigger and better in 5 years. I feel we're doing better and better on things as time goes on, so I don't see any reason for that to stop.

For the APs, which is what I mainly work on, I see the next 5 years allowing us to tell many of the stories we've been waiting to tell.

What's the most delicious dish that you've ever cooked?

That's a super tough question! I've been cooking since I was a kid, and did so professionally for well over a decade. So I've cooked thousands of meals, making it hard to choose one. (I am bad at picking favorites generally, and picking among things I've created further complicates that.)

Now to give a somewhat appropriate answer, one of the dishes I've made in the last month that I'm most proud of was an aloo bhindi curry I made recently. I've never really done much with Indian food, especially making everything from scratch. It turned out pretty tasty (and a bit spicier than I anticipated).

Was that the curry that you posted on Twitter? That one did look good, and I'm not really a fan of Indian cuisine.

I don't think I posted a pic. Curry doesn't tend to photograph well.

How do you properly cook rice noodles? I tried making pancit bihon (chicken), which turned out great, except the noodles.
