Bringing you the real news
Golarion moves forward in synch with the real world. So just like it's been 12 years since the release of Burnt Offerings here on Earth-1218, on Golarion it has been 12 years since the goblin raid on Sandpoint. Other adventure paths were released later, so the timeline hasn't moved as much forward on the events in those. It's been 8 years since Ameiko Kaijitsu set out across the Crown of the World to reclaim the throne of Minkai, it's been 6 years since Baba Yaga's rebellious daughter tried to usurp her, and it's been 2 years since a hobgoblin army tried to conquer Nirmathas and Molthune.How many years has the timeline been advanced?
I disagree, I much prefer the look/design of the PF1e elf (I don't know who she is either) to the PF2e version. Now, the art of the PF2e version is "better," but that could just be the context (i.e. the first image may be an image of her from far away while the new one is a close up. That is what it looks like to me, but I don't know the reference images).The elf woman however got a major major upgrade. I skimmed through all of the AP covers and I cannot figure out who that is though.
Well per Return of the Runelords New Sorshen is an enlightened Non-Evil Strong Confident Woman who realises that unlike Lustful Evil Old Sorshen she doesn't need to use sex to get her way.Sorshen got done dirty in the new artwork. The second picture would be a fine illustration of other characters, but the first just has an amazing presence as would befit a Runelord.
I'm fully expecting a Heel-Face-Heel turn eventually. I might be wrong, but if she goes evil again I will so not be surprised.Well per Return of the Runelords New Sorshen is an enlightened Non-Evil Strong Confident Woman who realises that unlike Lustful Evil Old Sorshen she doesn't need to use sex to get her way.
I suspect the players in my own Runelords campaign won't be quite as ready to accept Heel-Face'd New Sorshen as the Paizo writers seem to expect. I think some of them would prefer Alaznist!
Definitely agree with that - IMC Zutha & Krune are alive and active, Karzoug is active but still trapped in the Eye of Avarice, others are not known to be active yet. Krune holds Kaer Maga, recently had a fun vignette with his emissary's goodwill visit to Magnimmar, didn't go so well.A world where at least one of the legendary Runelords was not so stupid as to die almost immediately after being reawakened works for me.
