The Frog God guys put out an amazing product, and in my experience their customer service is excellent. I'm frequently astonished at how awesome they can be, even putting aside the fact that it's a mere handful of guys that are doing all of this in their spare time.
I could not agree more.
This would be my stance as well.
distant planets by the wayside...
a quick paraphrase.
DP has been used fairly frequently, since it came out, both in modules and APs. I agree that there have been calls for more use via the forums, but saying it has been laid by the wayside doesn't seem to track with its actual use.

Glad to hear you are trying to incorporate these options into the product.
Is this a definite? If so, seems a nice balance.
Fantastic writer! I am so glad that Eric was able to pursue this particular passion in Planet Stories. Turned me on to writers I was not aware of, and that is just plain awesome. Hopefully one day PS will rise again :)

Thanks for the support and the comments, Elorebaen. I must confess, I am much more of a fluff man than a crunch chap. I'll certainly give you suggestion some thought, though. Can you give me a sense of the kind of rule add-ons you'd be interested in?
Just saw your response. First, I want to say, what RS does, they do REALLY well, so don't stop! :)
What I had in mind is what Endz mentioned in this review and a couple others that he has done on your products. I really appreciate how you have collected the most important rules in your descriptive products. For example, the detect/identify magic rules with the treasure descriptions. I would like to see this approach continue.

I appreciate the idea of spin-offs. I also appreciate Pathfinder's approach to goblins. I think the goblin spin-offs are fun and witty, but a little goes a long way.
But, I would much prefer a more Golarion-style approach to the stories. I think we see too much slapstick fantasy stuff, and too little serious fantasy material in general. One of the great things about Golarion is that its foundation is informed by the great sword&sorcery tradition, and in general it is dark and gritty. I'd like to see the comic get back to that.
A little bit of side humor is cool, but I also think, in this case, it detracts from the unique pathfinder goblins. There are elements that can be humorous, but in the end these are psychotic killers.

I like how all three pics look. This approach seems much less of a hyperbolic look that we have seen from earlier in the series. I appreciate that.
I am hardcore supporter of RSP, and Endz for that matter :)
What Endz points out about rules support is spot on. Being tuned into the the current state of the rules, and supporting them in interesting and niche ways really adds a ton of value to 3pp material.
It would be great to see semi-regular updates that incorporate newer rules. Perhaps even a compilation of updates based on a newer rules to existing products as an idea for a product itself. I could really see this for a lot of GM resources line.
Side note, I am going to end up buying this anyway. I understand Enz's rating, and the sense in which it is offered. I hope it leads to some fruitful discussion.
The guide to the river kingdoms is an obvious one , but you should really have the pathfinder wiki (http://pathfinderwiki.com/wiki/Pathfinder_Wiki) bookmarked.
