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.
Stacking the improved critical feat and keen weapon property would be a huge boost to magi every where. I have to admit that the two not stacking never made sense to me. Keen is applied to a weapon to make it "sharper" as it were. Improved critical feat shows that the wielder is capable of wielding the weapon in such a way that he/she is better able to land blows that can fell a foe. This is like saying you can't apply dodge and dexterity to your standard AC or some other combo of two different bonuses applying to the same end result.
@Kudaku yeah we looked at that as well, actually that was what we looked to first. We were just looking for some good story ideas and maybe a better rule to justify making it happen. As it is he is working on a personal side quest to help me out. The destroying and reforging kind of covers the idea how it loses its form thus allowing my will to reshape it in the ritual of reforging. But losing the archtype, therefore losing the blade, then regaining the archtype and the choosing a new type of sword was a little meh. Yeah RAW says it works but story wise can you just dump your sentient blade and then go out and start hanging out with a new one like nothing happened. What if you run into each other in a tavern one day and you're there with the new black blade and your old black blade is there with a new magus, AWKWARD!
I am not trolling here and don't want to see any negative comments. It is a simple question, are any of you out there just happy with Pathfinder. I know I am, but it seems like all I see is negative thoughts on this game mechanic or that class is over powered or whatever. I just think it would be nice to have one thread out there where people take time to say something nice about Pathfinder, the game, we know the Paizo people are amazing. I see that all over the messageboards and have experienced it myself.

...Sexist... Can't we just enjoy something for what it is? Come on, it was classic, I loved it. It reminded me of all the sword and sorcery stories that got me into RPGs. Besides it was all of 9 minutes long, you were expecting some mind blowing world altering revelation from an art students project.
