I think my biggest issue is race swapping iconic characters.

I collect digitally now. I know of at least 1 person that has one of every Golarion & Pathfinder product, and when I say that I mean he buys a new copy of each printing of books.

I've seen a video of someone that has a copy of every single D&D (Official) product ever made plus every Pathfinder product.

I honestly hate captchas and activation e-mails. There are some places I still can't receive my activation e-mails from for reasons like I'm not using an e-mail address associated with my ISP or not using some known service (hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc). Sometimes the e-mails never even show up no matter what e-mail address I send them too (and they don't go to spam).

And captchas? They're just horrible, especially when I have to zoom a page 500% just to read them. There has yet to ever be a good implementation of them.

I still tend to not recognize most names they have listed as "established" authors.

Before it was clear that gnomes still died of old age I actually had a PC that was a gnome that basically changed himself up every hundred or so years (aka starts back at level 1 to keep things interesting) and his story was he was the one that bet Cayden to take the test.

Not sure if Paizo can have any say in this or not, but it would be great if the Kindle editions could have Lending and X-Ray turned on. Lending because ... well its lending. X-Ray is kinda like a wiki for just the book that lets people put character information and track how many times certain characters come up and other things and works like having an "in world" glossary so you just have to highlight something (say a Deity's name) and it'll give you some info about them.

I think I am going to houserule that players can give up feats at a faster rate in order to gain abilities from their VMC picks. I really dislike the fact that you don't really gain the the things that make you feel like a member of these classes until like... level 15 or 19 in a lot of cases. The campaign is basically over at that point.

Well really going faster than this you might as well just run a gestalt game.

Last I knew it was completely legal. I know when I enter Rogue archetypes into Hero Lab for Lone Wolf I have to make it for Ninja too if it replaces the same class abilities that both classes have.

I saw that too. They've (very cogently) made each "volume" of the first season into a single episode - meaning that they're essentially presented as two movie-length features.
Awe, but that means you don't get to sit through the awesome intro song until it is stuck in your head :(

So you're upset that someone looks at statistics on a public forum where anyone can do the exact same thing. Google does it. I could see being upset if this was a private forum or if your PMs were being tracked, but this is public and open to the world.

Out of curiosity why did you choose to release the files this way instead of directly through Lone Wolf's store where things could have been integrated to not have a $100+ entry point just for the user to use the program?

Owen, I've got a player that is using the Chronothurgey spell school and we're about to go mythic, he asked me:

Does the spending of motes count as "an arcane school power" for the archmages arcane coupling?

I figured I would post it here to get your thoughts. I'm thinking yes, but official clarifications are always nice.

I'm torn on this. I like having all the stuff in one place, but I dislike new stuff in compilations, and Kobold Press seems to have a habit of doing that. To me it's like seeing a comic publisher go "Here's the trade paperback and because you're buying something new, lets add an all new issue just for you." So the person that supported the product line all the way has rebuy everything if they want this new material.

The sample Skeletal Champion is a Human Warrior 1 Skeletal Champion with a CR of 2. I'm being told that because there is an NPC class involved the CR should be one lower (1), and that even Paizo does it wrong ... I've argued that the Skeletal Champion CR is based on the Skeleton which is based on Hit Dice and not Class Level.

So I'm trying to get clarification on just what CR that sample Champion should be.

The only fair way they'd be able to give them to everybody at once would be hold them until release day after all subscriptions have gone out. If they give them to everyone at the beginning they would have to charge, which they can't until it ships. I find myself all over the place when it comes to when my shipments go out and as much as I'd like to glance at my PDFs right away, I'd rather everything go as smoothly as possible for Paizo.

I also remember what happened when the Core Rulebook PDF was held and everyone given access at once ... I also remember the site being down for quite a while.

Work with your DM, and the rest of your group. There's actually nothing in the beastiary that states that vampires must be evil. However, if your PC becomes one they suddenly gain a bunch of powers that put them well ahead of the curve of everyone else. Not to mention some serious weaknesses that the others in your group may not like having to deal with. D&D is a collaborative game. Time to collarborate.

Well under "Creating a Vampire" it does say "Alignment: Any Evil"
