Article should have similar formatting to other major deities. Use of sections and section stub templates for areas lacking detail still makes it easier to read than a large block of text. -- Yoda8myhead 04:46, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Additional Spells Too Crunchy?

I have concerns about including lines such as the following in our deity articles:

It seems like this is getting too far into character options, and as such into crunchy territory. I know there's not many valid avenues from which to link to spells within our project, but I don't believe this is a good alternative. That said, I don't want the spells to be removed from the project; they have a definite Golarion flavor to them that we need to make available. -- Heaven's Agent 19:54, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

I think this could be remedied by simply changing the wording. If we remove references to non-Golarion-specific spells and then say something along the lines of "The Prince of Darkness grants his clergy the ability to perform infernal healing." making it less about spell access and more about the ability itself. Along the same lines, I don't know if we need to wikilink to gaes and other generic spells. If they don't have flavor specific to Golarion, they don't really need to be part of the project, for the same reason we don't write articles on "sword" or "castle." -- yoda8myhead 20:21, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Blackguards and Thaumaturgists

Since these two classes have been retconned out of Golarion with the switch from 3.5, should we remove the reference? Considering thaumaturgists can only worship demon lords, that doesn't make sense anyway.--Filby 02:24, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Scratch the bit about thaumaturgists; I was thinking of Green Ronin's thaumaturge base class, not the prestige class. But even so, it no longer exists in PF.--Filby 02:27, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
There is some precedent for converting blackguards to antipaladins. On p. 169 of the original Campaign Setting, Dason (who penned Serving Your Hunger) is described as a "knight-blackguard". In the PFRPG Ashes at Dawn p. 71, he is described as an antipaladin. --Brandingopportunity 02:52, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
And Khemet III was retconned from a thaumaturgist to a single-class cleric.--Filby 04:50, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Archstar as artifact

Book of the Damned specifies that the Archstar is Asmodeus's mace, whereas other articles apparently state that the Archstar is his symbol. I've gone ahead and implied that the symbol has become synonymous with the artifact and broke the unholy symbol notes off into a subheading under his church, though that might be inappropriate. I invite others to chime in here, however. --Kniedzwi (talk) 21:26, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Legislation subdomain

Book of the Damned doesn't list the Legislation Domain under Asmodeus, but I have left it for now. We might want to seek clarification from Paizo. --Kniedzwi (talk) 21:26, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
