Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Judging from the email I received yesterday and tis post, I can only assume that the Paizo staff are as addicted to Kickstart as I am. A very dangerous habit. I haven't contributed yet, still trying to determine what level I want. But looking at Kicktraq, it doesn't look good. But since Lisa's email yesterday, we've rallied and the contributions have shot up tremendously (the single largest day yet). Thanks, Lisa.

To Lisa and all the amazing staff at Paizo,

When, out of the blue, I first found out that Paizo was taking over the subscriptions, I was dubious at first, not because I thought you couldn't do it, but because I hadn't heard of you and internet spoofing was a growing concern. My subscriptions were hit and miss on arrival (magazines via APO are just that way). Without any reason to truly be doubtful, I went ahead and renewed; the option to subscribe online was fantastic since mail gets lost around my house.

You've done an amazing job and the end of Dragon and Dungeon as a regular feature in my life was a loss. With the advent of AP, I am glad to be one of the charter members (even if it's not reflected in my tag). I haven't been the most active in gaming and the site, but I've watched the site grow over the years. I am certainly glad to have stuck with Paizo.

I had just decided to bring gaming back into my life as a regular feature and went on a massive spending spree buying a lot of used books on Amazon when Wizards posted a big notice on their site stating 4dventure. #*(&^$%! Having just purchased what is probably one of the most eclectic collections of RPG books, I wasn't interested in moving on with 4E. I was glad when you moved past 3.5 without ditching it. I did pre-order the 4E set from you to take full advantage of you're one time discount and made full use of it, though I probably could have done better.

Reading the history (and looking forward to the rest) has been an eye-opener and I'm glad to have supported Paizo in my own small way. I'm grateful that you didn't give up when things looked the darkest.

I now understand why you haven't published a replacement magazine. I was ecstatic when Wayfider 1 came out and thought you had finally picked up the magazine reigns, but alas, this was not to be. Disappointing, but understandable. It looks like you're supporting Wayfinder as a fanzine. I think that's a great idea, maybe those of us who aren't able to win RPG Superstar can still get our ideas shared in virtual print. I believe it will add a lot to the community.

I've been happy with Paizo and the products you've put out over the years (and don't plan to ever lose the Charter Member tag), keep up the good work. Strike that, keep up the excellent work!

Failthfully yours,
Sean

P.S. When can we load up our own avatars?

I don't have a problem with giving up the rights (I've put in a submission).

There are scores of success stories filled with massive rejections. Harry Potter was rejected by 12 publishing houses. So not making the cut on one contest is hardly the the Gauge of Likelihood to Succeed. (I know, she didn't give up the rights, but that's not the point here.)

So, I don't get picked. (I don't expect to. There's a lot of amazing talent and I'm looking forward to the winner's module.) But taking inspiration from stories like J.K. Rowling's, I slink off and later I persevere and get my item published in a book (I'm an aspiring writer), or another RPG, or even in a Kobold Quarterly article.

While I consider the possibility somewhere between slim and none, what really is the likelihood that Paizo is going to come after me?

This of course assumes my item was notible enough to remember, or Paizo has a memory like an elephant, and discovers I made money off IP I gave them the rights to, but they rejected.

Thanks, Sean, Ryan, Clark, and Neil, we appreciate your time. And thanks to Paizo for a shot at the top.
