How does romance between deities and other outsiders even work with mortals? What's the view of other outsiders on such unions? Are offspring automatically demi-gods?
I don't have it handy, but didn't the mythic book(or maybe it was the smaller quests book?) touch on offspring of deities and whatnot?

I believe it uses that concept as a possible explanation for a character being Mythic, but that's really about all I remember about it.

Choose a different Inquisition DMW, Guileful Lore in the Infiltrator archetype makes the first power mostly redundant and there are better ways to Dominate Person (not a good spell against rival clerics, what with that Will save and all). Zeal gives emergency heals and Favored Enemy bonuses against your target faith.

I'd actually argue the Archetype and the Inquisition stack (one adds to Charisma, the other replaces it)...but this really isn't the place for that particular discussion.


I wonder if they make this book will they talk about the more exotic romances


somebody think of some romance themed Prestige Class names

I would like kink touched on in a positive light rather than regulating it all to Zon-Kuthon's abuse and Calistria's manipulation.

Really? You are right about Zon-Kuthon...but totally wrong about Calistria...people really should read the whole description of things and not just the first sentence or two.

Anyway I would love it if Pazio this book...Hope they do it one of these days.

Though I really don't want or need mechanics(though feats, spells etc would be okay just not Hard rules for it) for this...I would more like to see these subjects be done in view of culture and religion.


James Jacobs in his thread said he proposed something like this and it was strongly shut down. The reasoning he later gave was that he and the company would be afraid of people thinking that it was Pathfinder: the Porno rather than a look at family, courtship, and mature relationships.

Here's the link. He later clarifies some things if you read on.


Unfortunately, no matter what he does, some people are going to think that anyway.

I've explored the topic offline, and in general found that the people who think that tend to hold tabletop RPGs as inherently discriminatory. So, they think that about the core rulebook just because Seoni is on the cover. Remove her from the cover and they'll say it the first time they see her. Remove her entirely and they'll find something else to criticize.

End of the day, there's no point in trying to counter that viewpoint because they will accept nothing less than you just giving up.

Got to take a risk sometimes and nobody is asking for Porno

and Numenera has the Love and Sex in the Ninth World book i liked it people liked it and it got good Reviews even if i wish it had more player stuff.


DIVINE and ARCANE are the only two forms of magic we've seen in this system. LOVE (True Love) could be the third form. Divine and Arcane spells may copy it with enchantments and good spells, but LOVE is a power and magic all its own. Just imagine...


Hmmm. We all assume that if this book was done their would be those with pitchforks going on about "Porn in Game books!" But no one has mentioned and disparaged the other extreme, the one's who do want explicit content in the book. Am I the only one who upon thinking about it finds it kind of odd?

Also: Wove, twue wove, wiww fowwow you fowevah.

no one said anything about porn and no one is asking for porn I am asking for information on the different forms of romance and courtship and marriage within the different cultures of the Inner Sea

The last two posts show why this book will likely never be made: some people want "courtship and red blushes" book and some people want "sexual rituals and stats for STDs" book and having them both meet in the middle is kinda impossible.


Maybe not. ;)

kinda sad, there is nothing wrong with talking about sexuality but I was not asking for rules for sex or STDs in the firstplace

We could have the Swashbuckling iconic channeling Julie d'Aubigny.

Julie d'Aubigny was probably one of the most awesome people ever. She was a ridiculous swordswoman, adventurer, and opera singer. She once rescued her (female) lover from a convent (including stealing a body to fake her death and setting a room on fire) had another (male) lover who was the heir to a duke (after defeating him in a duel), and once kissed a young woman at a society ball, causing three men to challenge her to duels (she beat them all). And that's just a few of the highlights...


one can dream
