January 7, 2013 - Hermea

Hermea symbol.jpg

Hermea is an isolated island nation in the Steaming Sea. It was uninhabited until 4552 AR, when the gold dragon Mengkare decided to use it as the site of a unique social experiment he called “the Glorious Endeavor”—his attempt to perfect the human race. It is a long term project which aims to make each generation healthier, more intelligent and more talented than the last. Mengkare is the ultimate authority and arbiter of the greater good, and every adult has signed a Contract of Citizenship recognising this fact. Below him is the 13 member Council of Enlightenment who handle the day-to-day governance of the realm. In addition, almost every citizen has some kind of official authority in their area of expertise. read more

January 14, 2013 - Imrijka

Imrijka.png

Imrijka's story is one filled with tragedy, mystery, and hope. She was brought to the Gravecharge cathedral in Lepidstadt by a city watchman and named after its first high priestess. While a ward of the church of Pharasma, a strange man and his cohorts made three separate attempts to adopt the young woman. Each time they were turned away by Gravecharge's high exorcist Jarlos Teym, despite the strangers' claims that Imrijka was his daughter. As she grew, she studied to be a Pharasmin inquisitor and since coming of age has travelled much of Ustalav and further lands. read more

January 21 - Aballon

Aballon symbol.svg

The planet Aballon (also known as the Horse because of its rotational speed around the sun) is the closest of the planets to Golarion's star. Its proximity to the sun means the planet has a surface temperature which can melt lead. Close inspection of the Horse via divination magic and telescopes show that it is dotted with ruins that look almost mechanical in nature. read more

January 28 - Alaznist

Alaznist.jpg

Alaznist was the last Thassilonian Runelord of Wrath who ruled for many years over her realm of Bakrakhan. She is believed to have retreated from view along with the other runelords during Earthfall, and it is unknown whether she survived that cataclysm. She ruled from her capital of Xin-Bakrakhan, the City of Wrath, which is believed to have been located on what is now the island of Hollow Mountain in the Varisian Gulf. read more

February 4 - Great Old One

Cthulhu attack.jpg

Gods of the Dark Tapestry form two categories, in so far as such chaos might be categorized: the Outer Gods and the Great Old Ones, sometimes termed just Old Ones. The Outer Gods are equivalent to true deities, whereas the Great Old Ones are less powerful: more akin to demigods, like the archdevils and demon lords. The Great Old Ones respect the Outer Gods and may be seen as heralds or high priests of their greater kind. read more

February 11 - Shaitan

Shaitan.jpg

The shaitan are a race of genies from the Elemental Plane of Earth. They are humanoid in shape, and appear to be carved from rock, with glossy skin and glittering eyes. When they move it sounds like stone grating on stone. A typical specimen is 11 feet in height and 5,000 pounds in weight. They dress in as much finery as they can afford, and sometimes use illusions to increase the impression of wealth. read more

February 18 - Tian (human ethnicity)

Amara Li.jpg

The Tian people come from the distant continent of Tian Xia, located far to the east of the Inner Sea. The few Tian who migrate from their homeland to the shores of Avistan and Garund are generally classed as a single ethnicity. The Tian people, however, come from an entire continent, and as such are not one united ethnicity, but many different ones. All Tian in the Inner Sea region, however, have one thing in common: they are thousands upon thousands of miles from their ancestral homeland. read more

February 25 - Evoking Day

Nethys holy symbol.jpg

A holy day to followers of Nethys, Evoking Day is full of vibrant explosions, skillful wielding of spells, and much dancing. Evoking Day is observed on the 18th of Neth, and while this holiday is mostly celebrated in Garund, temples dedicated to Nethys host celebrations throughout the Inner Sea region. Traditional celebrations of Evoking Day have changed over the thousands of years since its first incarnation, but to this day every occurrence of Evoking Day still features a grand meal shared by celebrants during the afternoon and a wondrous exhibition of brilliant and explosive magic once the sun sets. These days, such colorful magical displays are augmented with fireworks of a dozen different colors and patterns. read more

March 4 - Falcon's Hollow

Falcons Hollow Map.jpg

Falcon's Hollow is a town in Darkmoon Vale, in the nation of Andoran. The settlement sits only a short distance from Darkmoon Wood and is little more than a logging village, comprised almost exclusively of lumbermen in the employ of the Lumber Consortium and their families. With few exceptions, the buildings and their inhabitants belong to the Consortium and totally depend on the overpriced goods delivered by the organization. read more

The Forlorn are a category of elf that differ from other elves by upbringing rather than ethnicity. These elves spent their lengthy childhood in non-elven (typically human) communities. The earliest Forlorn were the orphaned children of elves who refused to abandon Golarion from the predicted devastation wrought by Earthfall. read more

Emberstorm escape.jpg

Emberstorms are also known as black blizzards. These powerful duststorms made of ash and embers left behind by large brushfires, such as those used in burn runs. Because wildfires are more common in the summer months, this is when emberstorms are most commonly seen. The Shoanti pass legends that the emberstorms are the Cinderlands' way of taking the inhabitants of the plains that the gods have chosen to bring to the Boneyard. read more

April 1 - Sun orchid elixir

Thuvia symbol.jpg

The fabled sun orchid elixir is much sought after for its ability to temporarily halt the aging process, restoring the drinker to the age of its race's young adults. The secret of its creation was discovered by the Thuvian alchemist Artokus Kirran in 1140 AR. It is difficult and dangerous to make. The key ingredient is the nectar of the rare sun orchid flower. The flower can be found only in Thuvia’s desert interior, regions infested by the corrupted genies known as divs. Orchid hunters must also contend with the local tribal leaders, known as Water Lords; many of these lords are little better than bandits. read more

April 8 - Half-janni

Half-janni.jpg

Half-janni are the children of burning passions consummated with mysterious desert travellers. As with many half breeds, they do not belong entirely to either of their parent's worlds. The appearance of a half-janni is normally so close to human that it is impossible to tell from a cursory glance that they are not human, although they are always exceptionally beautiful. It is only on closer inspection that people notice the other worldly grace, the serenity and the small cloud of sand that often dances around their feet. Generally it is an impression of unearthly beauty and grace that distinguishes a half-janni from a human. read more

April 29 - Ragathiel

Ragathiel holy symbol.jpg

Ragathiel is an empyreal lord known as the General of Vengeance. His portfolio includes chivalry, duty, and vengeance, and his holy symbol is a bastard sword crossed with a crimson wing. He makes his home at the base of the mountain of Heaven, in a magnificent steel fortress designed to withstand a thousand-year siege if need be. Ragathiel takes an active role in the battle against Hell's fiendish legions. He shines at the head of his army, a figure of golden light cleaving through the ranks of devils that face him. Soldiers of all kinds, but particularly knights, pay homage to Ragathiel and pray for his virtue and wrathful strength in battle. Those who have taken vows, especially those of duty or vengeance, hold Ragathiel as their ideal, and his agents sometimes assist those who have been grievously wronged and now seek righteous vengeance. read more

May 13 - Diabolism

Diabolism.jpg

Diabolism is a philosophical interest in understanding, serving, and promoting the organizational structure of Hell. Diabolists do not venerate Asmodeus or his Archdevils in particular, preferring to come to a greater understanding of the hierarchies, structures, and philosophies which are the underpinnings of their interactions. As such, this ideology does not grant its adherents divine power, although devotees of infernal powers often arise from such cults, making the philosophy something of a stepping stone to infernal worship. read more

Ankheg.jpg

Verminous dangers that roam the hinterlands of civilisation, ankhegs are burrowing, insect-like menaces that prey on livestock and the farmers who guard them. At first glance, the ankheg seems to be a gigantic insect. Unlike true insects, however, the ankheg only has one set of eyes and possesses a rudimentary intelligence similar to that of reptiles. Its oversized mandibles excrete a potent acid which it uses to dissolve its food. read more

May 27 - Knight

Jamus Hainard.jpg

Many cultures in Golarion have a tradition of knights and knightly orders. Some seek out glory and champion the common man, all while wearing shining armor astride a mount. Others have neither good nor noble intentions. However, all knights have a sense of a purpose larger than themselves. This purpose may be faith and holy orders. For others, the glory of their home country is paramount – either through influencing others while abroad or providing defense at home. Still others have felt the call to uphold cherished philosophical ideals, such as self-perfection or the absolute rule of law. read more

July 15 - Hobgoblin

Kerschak.jpg

Hobgoblins are a goblinoid race of raiders and pillagers, taking what they need with steel and fire from more advanced cultures before vanishing back into the wilds, slaves and plunder in tow. A hobgoblin is nearly the same height as a human. Their round, hairless heads sit atop wide, thick necks, and their long, tattered ears flank a pair of savage orange eyes. Their dull, gray-green skin is coarse and largely devoid of hair. Their short, powerful legs coupled with their long, muscular arms grants the hobgoblin vague similarities with that of a brutish ape. Unlike their capricious goblin cousins, hobgoblins are strong, cunning, and organized, with a natural inclination toward hierarchies and social order. Though their strongholds are often sloppily constructed, they are extremely tenacious in their defense. read more

July 22 - Ogrekin

Ogrekin.jpg

Ogrekin are the spawn of the hideous forced unions between ogres and whatever humanoids they can overpower. Grotesque creatures, no two ogrekin look the same, each bearing different deformities caused by its aberrant ogre parentage. Ogrekin are just as evil as their ogre parents and are universally shunned by other humanoids. Ogres view ogrekin as too weak and flimsy to be proper ogres and so are not allowed to be part of ogre tribes. Humanoids on the other hand regard ogrekin as hideous monsters unfit for anything except a quick death by the sword. Ogrekin usually live in small, brutish, and often inbred clans. These clan survive either by living on the scraps of giants or preying on weaker humanoids.read more

The Isle of Kortos sits prominently in the center of the Inner Sea and hosts Absalom, the world's largest city. While the metropolis itself does not occupy the entire landmass, the remaining land is considered among of the city-state's holdings, including the two smaller settlements on the island (Diobel and Escadar). Much of the non-populated land surrounding Absalom is filled with ruined siege engines and battlements from the countless assaults on the city's impenetrable walls and has come to be known as the Cairnlands. In the center of the Isle the Kortos Mounts rear out of the land, forested in their lower reaches but barren and icy at their peaks. read more

The looted Woodsedge Lodge stands in the city of Woodsedge in southern Galt. It once held the magical, historical and cultural artifacts of the Pathfinder Society: during its heyday, the lodge held fabled treasures such as the Thorncrown of Iomedae, Vesper's Rapier and the Golden Carriage of Gaspar Longfellow, among other items of cultural value. Once an important locale for the Pathfinder Society, the lodge suffered considerable damage when the Red Revolution first began, although it persisted in some capacity regardless. The death blow came due to a bandit raid in 4704 AR: its remaining relics contained within were looted. The lodge was then heavily damaged by the following riots when Revolutionary fanatics also attacked, slaying the Venture-Captain and hanging her servants from the three towers of the lodge. read more

=== October 7 - Cheliax ===
Cheliax flag.jpg

Infernal Cheliax remains one of the most powerful nations militarily in the Inner Sea region. Its control of the Arch of Aroden also gives it a vital role in much of the region's trade. Nevertheless, as important as the nation may be today, it pales in comparison to its former Imperial glories. Today, in the eyes of most external observers in other parts of the Inner Sea, Cheliax suffers from extreme diabolism and a tyranny which prevent it from truly achieving its full potential. Internal observers, including the new nobility of Cheliax, firmly believe that Asmodeus and Hell serve Cheliax and assist in maintaining the power necessary for Cheliax to assume its rightful role among the leading nations of the Inner Sea. read more

A few were saved by the Azlanti's original masters, the mysterious aboleth, who took in a small number and fleshwarped them to survive in their aquatic domain far below the sea. Strangely, once this transformation was accomplished, the aboleth seemed to lose interest in the gillmen, leaving them to freely form their own society in the following millennia read more

In this era of political chaos, the peasant-philosopher Grandfather Pei arose preaching the secular gospel of communism and rallied the abused and downtrodden farmers, miners, and fishermen under a new banner: a tiger (representing the peasants) chasing an imperial dragon (the aristocracy) around a sun. read more
