Did The Mwangi Expanse change any weapons to be Common for the region? I haven’t bought the book yet, but from Nethys, it looks like it only added one Common weapon, which is the Gaff. Which doesn’t really strike me as a regional weapon.

Which is to say that I don’t know that we can count on a Tien book to change rarity of anything. But that also being said, the one person at Paizo who has said we need that list is now on the design team, so maybe there’s hope.

To the extent that a number of "uncommon" weapons got added to various races weapon familiarity lists, yes. Of the top of my head, as an example Conrasu got spiked chain as a "cultural" weapon.

I can't really think of any "uncommon" weapons that would be common in an "African inspired" mythos. But that may say more about my ignorance of African cultures than anything else. It did contain recommendations for *other* class options to have varying degrees of commonality (including language and ancestry)

The book that I would be stunned if it didn't have variant availability for weapons is an eventual Osirion book. (Kopesh common, long sword uncommon in Osirion has been such a canonical example. )

As for weapons common in a "Japanese inspired " setting (which is only a small subset of Tien) I, personally, would expect Yari, Tanto and Naginata to be common (replacing the spear / long spear, short sword, and various pole arms, respectively.) And the Katana, odachi, and nodachi to be uncommon.

I don’t see spiked chain in Conrasu Weapon Familiarity. Do they just get access to it by default now? Does that make it a weapon common to a region or culture and now selectable with Unconventional Weaponry?

Oh... Sorry, I just realized I was confused. (I have a Conrasu with a spiked chain, but I forgot I got it from deific weapon, not from weapon familiarity. In fact I eventually *dropped* weapon familiarity because I decided I liked the spiked chain better than the conrasu sword...)

Hey OP, where do we stand on the cultural access to items and such?

It's under discussion at this very moment. Hopefully we can provide an update quite soon.

Since you and Jared asked the name is

TSUKI GA MICHIBIKU ISEKAI DOUCHUU also known as Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy it recently got an anime adaption... for which I spoiled myself by reading the entire manga (which is not finished yet).

Edit:

To actually add some actual points, I am mostly for an easy way to get everything that avoids having to deal with culture or region, this might be a very personal thing but the choices you make and how you want to express yourself matter more than where you are coming from or how you grew up.

Well, that's . . . really good. Would still like the ability to unlock with AcP, but It's a really good step in the right direction. Not complaining at all!

You can unlock with AcP, just use the World Traveler boon to be from the region that has the item/s you want access to

I was just mentioning that some things aren't on the list, like all the circus weapons (Juggling club, throwing knife). So we have a bit more to go but like I said, not complaining at all. Really happy that this got taken care of so quickly!

I think most of the circus weapons are unlocked via the correlating chronicle sheet from the AP, maybe we are lucky and they will get reprinted in "Ultimate Circus" in 2026.
