hehehehe I read Goka as Goku there....

well yes I agree with that. but that was more toward DGM's Foreign Hero if that is what we are calling it line.

Adventure in Tian Xia that starts and finishes there should star pcs from Tian Xia.( even if it starts in Tian Xia and ends in the Shackles.... it should still star PCs from Tian Xia)

I also think they should start adding incentives to do so too.( of course I'd have no idea as to waht that would be)

The issue is that an overwhelming number of adventure paths assume the PCs come from the Inner Sea regardless of whether or not the campaign is set predominantly in that region. Golarion is huge, with plenty of continents and tons of ethnic groups on each (and not just for humans), so going forward we'd like the developers to take advantage of that and write adventure paths that are set in different regions AND assume local characters are default.

Your issue though is one created by available materials. A huge percentage of 1st ed stuff was printed for and about Avistan with only sampler looks at outside regions. Thus the real reason Ap were set up to begin in Avistan and feature Avistani characters is because that's where all your options were.

I've said before that the next Tian AP should start somewhere in Tian, and I still hold to that, but it's going to require support materials from Paizo to give you the depth you need to make your local PC's feel part of the setting and the setting feel like home to them.

I mean...that's what this thread whole thread is asking for, isn't it?

but what if we don't want 1 new book for Tian???
What if we really want 2 books. And here they are:
1: Northern Tian Xia
2: Southern Tian Xia

oooooo yeah and here is book 3 just incase

3: Darklands of Tian Xia

anything else like tian creatures can go into a beastiary..... unless its a player option which it can go in either book.

and look at this way
a book on northern and a book on souther tian xia gets us more info on Tian xia as it could add a few more npcs and or go into a little more detail.

and more art too.....

I see Zimmerwald hasn't posted in a while, lending credence to my theory that he was David Koch taking up trolling as a retirement hobby.

Don’t do personal attacks please. As this is sensitive topic, it is also one that evokes strong feelings and making personal attacks doesn’t help allowing the topic being discussed (and not getting threads closed down).


he could have been passing a joke... but who knows and you do have a very sharp point
