What are we doing?

A Handy Reference

Someone in the FB Pathfinder group came up with this list. Dunno how accurate it is, but it looks pretty good to me.
All this time I was thinking Taldor was the British Empire, but it turns out it was closer to Byzantium.  How does one do a Byzantine accent?

Absalom is Jerusalem mixed with Rhodes/Cyprus.
Almhult is Iceland.
Amanandar is Hong Kong.
Andoran is the early United States.
The Arcadians are Native Americans, and so are the Shoantinote .
Bachuan is, of all places in a fantasy setting, a fusion of communist China and North Korea.
Brevoy and Iobaria are medieval Russia.
Cheliax can be seen as some weird form of Satan-worshipping Nazi Germany / Fascist Italy hybrid if you look at it the right (wrong) way.
Druma is Switzerland.
Dtang Ma is Vietnam and Malaysia.
The Erutaki are Inuit.
The Forest of Spirits is ancient Japan, by way of Princess Mononoke.
Galt is revolutionary France.
Goka is Macau fused with Singapore.
Hongal and Shaguang are Mongolia.
Hwanggot is Korea.
 Iblydos is ancient Greece.
 Irrisen is the fairy tale version of Russia (complete with Baba Yaga!).
Jalmeray is a fantastic Indian version of Socotra island.
Jistka was a less successful Rome mixed with Carthage.
Kaladay is the medieval European conception of China.
Katapesh is Arabia.
 Kelesh is Persia.
The Lands of the Linnorm Kings are Scandinavia.
Lung Wa and its many Successor States are China.
Minata is Indonesia and the Philippines.
Minkai is Japan and so is Shokuro, with the difference being that Minkai is a bit more fantastic and Shokuro a bit more feudal.
 Molthune is Prussia.
The Mwangi Expanse is Darkest Africa.
Ninshabur is Babylon.
Osirion is Egypt.
Qadira is also Arabia (with some Persian influences).
Sarusan is Australia. The Shackles are the Caribbean.
Taldor is the Byzantine Empire.
Ustalav is fantasy Transylvania.
Valenhall is Vinland.
The Varisians are the Romani (Gypsies).
The Varki are Sàmi (Lapland natives).
Vudra is India.
The Wall of Heaven is Nepal.
Xa Hoi is Thailand and Khmer Empire.
Zi Ha is Tibet.

Of the deities: The faith of Iomedae comes closest to Christianity. Asmodeus is a take on Satan as depicted in Paradise Lost and the Divine Comedynote . Sarenrae's faith has Islamic and Zoroastrian influences. Shizuru and Susumu are Amaterasu and Susanoo, and Daikitsu is Inari. Sangpotshi is Buddhism. The Vudran faith is Hinduism.
It even extends to the solar system. Aballon the Horse is Mercury. Castrovel the Green is Venus. Akiton the Red is Mars. The Diaspora is the Asteroid Belt. Liavara is Jupiter and Saturn. Bretheda is Uranus and Neptune. Aucturn is Pluto (and by Pluto we mean Yuggoth.

Atlantean Power Words

For future reference -

Based upon the description for Atlantean Power Words and other talents in the chain only work on "sentient creatures". I take that to mean races that can be player characters. I do not believe that it will work on robots (because they are not creatures), animals (not sentient) and mindless undead (not living/sentient). Might work against undead with an intelligence. I also think it may not work on mind controlled or otherwise controlled characters. At the very least it might require an opposed roll against the controller.

Exile looking for GMs for Gen Con

Is anyone that is going to Gen Con interested/willing to run a HEX game or two?

Some of the usual cast of characters that normally run games at Gen Con cannot make it this year for various reasons. The registration deadline for games and not have them be considered as late adds is 3/14/16 so there is not a lot of time left.

If you want to try your hand at running, I can supply an adventure to run.
