Modrons

I wonder if modrons are going to be in this setting... --Canifis 18:24, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

We'll find out in May. I'm not sure if they're OGC though. They might be WotC IP in which case they won't. Asking on the Paizo boards is a good place to find out. -- Yoda8myhead 18:30, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm 99% sure that WoTC kept Modron's as IP... but it has been hinted that the mechanical academy in Absalom may invent a similar thing some time soon (or that this is a good place for some Modrons to be hiding if you are playing a planescape game that dabbles in Golorian.Cpt kirstov 19:39, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Chronology

A question: the current write-up and Shadow of the Storm Tyrant have it that the titans assaulted Axis while warring against the gods, and at some point after this the axiomites create the inevitables as defenders of Law. Planar Adventures, however, presents a different sequence of events in regard to conflicts concerning the plane — the proteans attack Axis, leading to the creation of the inevitables; the god-titan war occurs; and Rovagug attacks the city. These seem to me to be incompatible — the first places the creation of the inevitables after the titan war, while the second places it before the titans' rebellion. Is there some way to resolve this that I'm overlooking? If not, which chronology should we prioritize? ~User:Theriocephalus (talk) 0:26, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Per the canon policy:
As such, starting with the Adventurer's Guide these (Pathfinder RPG line) books are considered Tier 1 resources for setting canon, and because they are newer than the adventure paths that they reference, new or changed information about those adventure paths that appears in RPG-line books should reflect the current canon state of the setting on the wiki.
I don't have Shadow handy to confirm that the way it's presented creates an irreconcilable conflict, but I might be able to check it during lunch later today. If it's irreconcilable, Planar Adventures would be considered the current state of the setting, you'd add a {{Conflict}} template to the statement and explain the difference on the resulting conflict page.
You could also ask for clarification on the Paizo forums. -Oznogon (talk) 19:15, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. I'll see to that when I have some free time. ~User:Theriocephalus (talk) 22:11, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
A similar conflict regarding formians in Axis is now documented here as Talk:Axis/Conflicts. -Oznogon (talk) 05:07, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Remove mention of formians

Don't follow policy off a cliff. -PDV (talk) 11:08, 30 November 2018 This comment was left as a summary of an edit deleting a canon conflict. Please discuss topics on Talk pages.

This is a wiki, not a cliffside; nobody is being harmed by a reference to conflicting information. Please discuss deletions before performing them. -Oznogon (talk) 23:10, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Formian hives

With how the formians of Axis have been retconned out of existence, I think it is safe to assume that the formian hives and similar locations (as presented in The Great Beyond, A Guide to the Multiverse) have been excised from canon as well. Therefore, they have been commented out. - HTD (talk) 14:30, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
