Thank you. You have no idea how much time has been spent discussing that one little item.
My group almost exclusively enters from the top floor or back side of a dungeon when possible. We also have a tendency of carring necklaceses of fireballs or masive amounts of alchemical fire and grenades. We have devised a tactic to single shot most bbeg or tough fights with our blast 'em and forget'em mentallity. As a "reward" our GM destroys all the loot including magic items. We shrug, meh, and just go blow the next guy to the boneyard.
I'm 36, well 37 come December, I always wondered why my parents forgot what it was like to be a teenager. Now my wife is pregnant with our first child. I will be 50ish when she becomes a teen. I just hope I don't forget by then what it was like. We all did things to our parents that had them head poundung walls. Why should we expect less from our spawn.
I know everyone is pointing out the differences between psionic and psychic, but in the original Pathfinder campaign setting book half elves were said to have special connection with crystals. This was due to their dual minds leaving them more open to psionics. But crystals are also tied closely with the occult and new age mystics. So the question is, will this idea resurface? And in what way?
I have to admit I have a skewed vision of the world thanks to the school system I attended. For a simple public school system in mid-west America we had a diverse culture. We were not a white or black school. We had foreign exchange students from all over the world. I was friends with homosexual kids, kids questioning their sexual and gender identity. I had a friend who was asexual. I just took it all in as if it were no big deal because that is what was there. I did not know how lucky I was to be exposed to that until I got out in the real world and found out how much hate was there. I seem to have always found the novels and comics that openly had homosexual and transgender characters. Again, just took it all in as, "hey that's world". I am glad that once again I have found (quite by accident I suppose) another place where all are welcome. Crystal you did an amazing job on the story, I love strong dwarven cultures. I love bread crumb trails, finding the meaning is so much more fulfilling than having it spoon fed to me. I would love to see you write a novel of Golarians dwarves, rivethun and all. And to everyone out there who has problems fitting in with the rest of the world... screw 'em, don't. You are who you are, you are a puzzle piece all your own, you don't have to fit into their picture. But you will fit into some one's picture some where, that's the point of being a real life iconic adventurer.

3. There will not be a play test for this book. We have been getting years of play test feedback on many of the rules we will be examining in this book.
So you are saying that all the play test for UM, UC, APG, ARG, ACG, etc. etc. have just been play test within the bigger play test. Dreams within a dream, oh you clever boy you.
I started playing D&D just months before the switch to 3.0 and loved it. Loved it even more in 3.5. Then thanks to 4e I fell in love with the Pathfinder beta. When we buried our D&D books in rubermaid containers in the basement our group swore off switching systems. That said we appreciate the way Paizo runs their company, and the game system they provide us with. Having spent so much money on D&D books I like the slower release schedule and lack of expensive hardbacks. I do miss Eberron and Sharn though. That was the best campaign setting ever, period.
