4 Hours Left to Support a Troper-Created Project : Personal Space (discuss)

Funny / Pathfinder

  • The entirety of the 'We Be Goblins' module.
    • The fact that 'We Be Goblins' canonically takes place before the 'Jade Regent' Adventure Path, with the people of Varisia having to deal with the mess your WBG PC's set into motion.
      • Then 'We Be Goblins Too!' takes place after that.
  • The fact that Cayden Cailean became a god while piss-drunk and still doesn't remember how he did it.
  • Champions of Purity has a picture of Hayato (Iconic Samurai) surrounded by Ridiculously Ugly Cute baby goblins, and clearly having no idea what to do with the crying infants. The name of the image? Goblin Nursery.
    • Also, the smirk on Imrijka's face as she holds a bound Mite upside-down.
  • Faiths & Philosphies contains a tract-like screed against alternate forms of faith in Golarion written by a follower of Iomedae.
  • At the start of Rise of the Runelords, players may find themselves caught up in one of these when faced with Shayliss Vinder. See this thread on the messageboards for reactions to this sequence, culminating in a scenario worthy of Yakety Sax.
  • The Goblins comics. Especially the first tale, where a band of the little psychopaths start Starscreaming each other over the magic Eye of a lich, each popping out their own eye, putting the artifact in, and getting killed in the middle of their A God Am I speech.
  • While the birth of Balazar's eidolon Padrig is mostly awesome, the fact that his head is that of a chicken comes from the fact that Balazar hadn't eaten all day and was getting hungry.
  • Early in the "Reign of Winter" Adventure path, the party gets the opportunity to skin a Winter Wolf and turn its pelt into an item that can temporarily disguise you as a Winter Wolf. After passing though a city gate guarded by Winter Wolves in human form, a PC wearing that pelt will get pulled over by one of them. No, she didn't recognize the wolf you made it out of, she really thinks the player is a fellow Winter Wolf, and wants to ask them out!
  • Pathfinder Unchained uses an illustration right out of Looney Tunes to illustrate moral dilemmas; Seelah the paladin is practically tearing her hair out at the sight of a tree with two signs on it pointing opposite directions: "Antipaladin's Castle" and "Burning Orphanage". And the antipaladin is hiding right behind the tree.
    • From the same book, noted arrogant Jerk Ass Alain the cavalier reduced to herding sheep.
  • From the Bestiary description of the owlbear:
    The origin of the owlbear is a subject of great debate among scholars of the monstrous creatures of the world. However, most concur that at some point in the distant past, a deranged wizard created the original specimans by crossing an owl with a bear perhaps as proof of some insane concept about the nature of life, but possibly out of sheer lunacy.
  • Kobolds of Golarion opens with Five Facts About Kobolds, basically to show how, despite their weakness, they've managed to thrive in the Darklands. But then the section closes by saying that predators don't eat them because... well...
    "Kobolds Taste Terrible. This is best taken on faith."
  • On the messageboards, specifically on a topic about ethics in Golarion, Sean K. Reynolds, Designer & RPG Superstar Judge had this to say after the topic became suitably de-railed:
    Sean K. Reynolds: "And not that I think this discussion should be "my specific group has/had it worse than your group." We're all a bunch of socially-ostracized gamer nerds who couldn't get a date in high school. Well, except for Sutter, who everyone finds irresistible. Damn him."
    • Also, from the same thread by another poster:
    As a gay, left-handed, latino gamer (talk about minorities), I don't think Pathfinder is ethically problematic in the least.
  • On the messageboards, the main artist for the Iconic Characters, Wayne Reynolds, answers questions regarding them. Some of his responses are clear Deadpan Snarker, and often times sheer comedy. An example just from the first page.
    El Ronza: Speaking of Seelah, what's the significance of the key that hangs around her right thigh? It's such a captivating little detail, and I've always wanted to know - is there a story behind your choice to include it, or is it just a little visual touch?
    Wayne Reynolds: I always intended it to be the key to her chastity belt.
  • Ultimate Intrigue has an amusing picture of Imrijka and Balazar wearing each others Nice Hats.
    • Another picture has Alain kissing a pig. In a conical princess hat.
  • Double duty of a Awesome moment: MagusJanus accidentally summons the Tarrasque four times in one campaign. And lives.
  • The cover of the Monster Codex gets funnier the longer you look at it. The vampire is trying to chat up the drow and she's having none of it; the goblin reaching into the cookpot looks like he's about to get punched in his oversized head by the chef; the duergar is detailing his plan to the troll and ogre (said "plan" is literally stick figures of a humanoid and a giant with a club, labeled "PLAN"); the bugbear, troglodyte and gnoll are playing a dice game themselves (including an easily recognizable d4, d8 and d12), and the ratfolk is showing the viewer how to get so many people of so many different races to get along: make it a party, and bring the booze.
