[Golarion] Golarion forum icon?

Does anyone has a better idea?

Thing are approaching the point where there are enough posts on the setting to make a real difference.

Edit: backlink so I can find that thread later.

Pretty good, Ash. :D

If you ditched the red bar, would it be possible to make the text a couple of pixels taller?

It would appear that the response from Paizo forum effectively amounts to "don't invent a forum logo for our products" :x

It makes sense that they'd say that.

You could use the Pathfinder Chronicles logo, since that's what they use for their setting. I did a google image search, and here's the cover of a book in which the logo is not partially blocked. Maybe someone can pull out the logo and size it down.

To quote myself...
Dragonhelm wrote:Pathfinder is both the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder Campaign Setting. Note the logos. Paizo doesn't brand it as the Golarion Campaign Setting. It's an odd duck that way.
So the logo for the Pathfinder Campaign Setting is as follows:

If you need help resizing it, let me know.

Oh, and here's the Pathfinder RPG logo if you want.

As of this writing, they have not issued any formal legal documents. To protect myself and this forum, I have chosen not to comment on this matter in public.

Here is a radical idea for the Golarion forum - use the same logo that is used for the "Pathfinder" forum (which for clarity, I would suggest is renamed "Pathfinder RPG").

Pathfinder RPG blurb could then be changed from "Discuss Paizo's Pathfinder rules here. Discussion of the World of Golarion campaign setting can also be held here." to "Discuss Paizo's Pathfinder rules here. Discussion of the Pathfinder Campaign Setting should be posted in our Golarion forum."

And the Golarion forum could get a blurb along the lines of "Discuss Paizo's Pathfinder Campaign Setting here. Discussion of the Pathfinder RPG rules system should be posted in our Pathfinder RPG forum."

Just noticing this thread with BM's push for the first time, and realize I've missed some things. Given that the Pathfinder (Campaign Setting) logo as noted by Dragonhelm in his post is part of the Paizo "Community Use" package on their own website, it seems odd to me that we couldn't/can't just use that for the Golarion forum, but it seems like Ash may have already had that discussion and chosen not to comment on their response.

In its absence, I say we either just throw everything Golarion into the Pathfinder forum, or else just don't use a logo.

(Unless, perhaps, they didn't want us to use them without the appropriate disclaimer from the Community Use Policy somewhere, not to mention the account name and updates regarding community use as mentioned in usage requirements. All of which could be more hassle than I think any of us want to get involved in, in which case, again, I say just go without a logo.)

Of course, BM's idea is just as good. :D

I've lost the original conversation with Paizo, but the gist was:

* No official image with "Golarion" exist.
* No such image is planned for creation.
* We do not have permission to manipulate their imagery to add "Golarion" into them.
* They do not want non-Paizo imagery (ie. anything we might make) to be associated with their products.

Given those restrictions, it is essentially impossible for a Golarion logo to legally exist.

How about this logo?

Presumably taken from one of the Paizo books.

I'm not sure that "Legends of Golarion" logo is clean. It might need to have "Legends of" cut from it.

Also who is to know that "Legends of Golarion" is not lifted from someone's PBM campaign website. :?

EDIT: Scratch that. I'm wrong. It is the name of one of the boxed sets in the Pathfinder Battles range. So this is official, but "Legends of Golarion" might be mistaken for a miniatures forum.

But here is an idea. We are trying to work out how to make a new logo for a campaign setting that uses the same name as the rules system.

Why not just use the same "Pathfinder" logo for both things and have a Golarion forum and Pathfinder RPG forum both have descriptions that say something along the lines of:
  • This forum is for discussion of the rules of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The Pathfinder Campaign Setting is discussed in our Golarion forum.
  • This forum is for discussion of the world of Golarion as featured in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting. The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules are discussed in our Pathfinder RPG forum.
I think that would be fairly easy for people to understand. :)
