That's not really a sensible comparison.

Geography is often misread here: the Falklands are a long way from Argentina, they are not 'naturally' part of any state.

The people who matter here, the Islanders, speak English and feel themselves to be British. The economy has, for generations, been supported by the UK with no expectation of benefit.

In a sense, colonising the Falklands has been a mistake but we have supported the place regardless.

Every so often they have a referendum to prove the obvious: the overwhelming majority of the islanders want to remain British.

I don't understand why LazarX has a problem with that?

It makes more sense for Alaska to join Canada and Hawaii to become an independent state than it does for Argentina to govern the Falklands. None of those things should happen though.

I'm going to repeat this...

It doesn't matter how long you live, you're still going to spend your whole life as a level 1 peasant unless you hit the heroic jackpot.

A human who gets granted eternal life will still stay at level 1 for all of eternity unless they get adventuring (or GM/advernture-designer fiat elevates them for story reasons).

The lifespan doesn't matter. If you've got a 6 intelligence then you'll just go from stupid kid to stupid adult to stupid relic.

The real controversy is that after the age of 70 humans don't have to roll a save against senility every year! Paizo are idiots...

In my perfect world, those two are housemates in a sprawling gothic plantation-owners house.

Without outside influence they would shred most of their work in drunken arguments but the need to compete with Pett's creative output is just too strong.

Also I recall (perhaps incorrectly) that the hardcovers are sold at a loss. And considering the hardcovers are all on OGL SRD for free, I'm inclined to believe that.

I severely doubt that. The Core Rulebook was what pulled Paizo's butt out of the fire when WotC went to 4th Ed. If Paizo was making a loss on those, they wouldn't be in business long enough to have made the rest of their books.

Their hardcovers are priced similarly to other companies. Which means, that if Paizo is selling theirs at a loss, then everyone else is selling at a loss as well.

Your math just doesn't add up.

The only thing that I've heard that sells close to a loss (but still makes the barest of profit) is the Beginner's Box. That's because they stack as much into that box as they can and want to put it at an affordable price point.

The core rule book did not save Paizo financially, but conceptually.

It allowed them to continue their fantastic subscription-based business.

The CRB did sell a lot, as Lisa has made clear, and I expect that Paizo are making money from it. However, Paizo did not need mad-rulebook-cash to stay afloat; they needed a popular, in-print version of 3.5 for which they could sell adventures.

You young people of today...

When I was eight years old, I moved from Oxford, to a gold mining town (Carletonville) in apartheid South Africa. My brother was eight years older than me. He went to university and came back with the red box. At the time, I was a wreck. I had gone through a series of traumas, with the worst two being my difficulty adapting to living in a fascist, racist, fundamentalist state, and surviving sexual abuse by an older boy. I had almost nothing to live for, but that red box gave me a sudden escape. I had already read The Hobbit, and I knew some mythology, but the ability to re-invent myself through D&D hit me with a force that I can still recall. I read the basic and expert rules under the covers with a flashlight, and even a candle, which singed the page with the third level cleric spells on it. It became the best thing in my life, and I naturally wanted to share my discovery with my peers.
Within short order, I was being punched in the gut by children who didn't even know me, spat on from balconies. I had my nine year old head flushed in a used toilet. A teacher confiscated my dice, as evil.
Three older boys grabbed me from the corridoor, into an empty classroom, held me down, and tried to perform an exorcism on me, using latin they probably got from a horror movie. I was sent by the school to a psychiatrist, for atheism, after my notebook was stolen, and handed to the guidance counsellor. I was told by well-meaning adults that I was going to go to hell, and that I had invited Satan into my life. I had one friend. He was also from England, and had the Greyhawk setting, box set. I endured.

In fairness, there was a lot of goofy stuff about my school life. My biology teacher handed out leaflets titled "Is the Kaffir an Ape, or Just a Sub-human?" We had more hours of religious teaching in a week, in my state school, than we had English lessons. We had regular canings and punishment by exercise. My history teacher took pains to explain to the class that carbon dating is a lie...

Blimey!

I hope you've come back to blighty: in the UK you can play in quiet pubs and the most you get is someone mooching over to say, "What are you playing? Looks like dnd, I used to play that when I was a kid."

I stare blankly ahead, lost in the vision, and as it progresses I grow even more still and rigid: every muscle tensed beyond straining; my heartbeat a steady pace but pounding against my chest like waves against the shore.

Of course, no specific person in particular needs to read for deeper understanding. If you yourself think that Moby Dick is just a story about a fishing trip, and you enjoy it as such, have fun. But that doesn't eliminate the culture (both content and context) of the symbols in the book.
I would argue that some of the layers of symbolism (past what the author either had in mind or clearly had on their mind while writing) aren't deep, they're bull. At some point its like reading tea leaves or looking at clouds and insisting that the shapes you see are actually there.

It's sad that some people seem to want to make this thread a re-hash of old threads rather than engaging with the OP's interesting argument which I don't believe has been seen on the boards before.

Of course, the art has a connection with the OP's point but it isn't really the deal.

So, try talking about it in context of the OP, otherwise you can just link to old threads which have, at great length, covered almost every perspective on clothing/gender/sexualisation or iconics/art.

Not 99% but not off-base either.

No, not 99% and that's with the most egregious example you can find. In AP's, modules and world books that number continues to drop noticeably to the point that the percentage of scantily clad women in Pathfinder begins to pretty closely mirror the percentage of scantily clad women in my day-to-day life.

I think many - such as in the post above - are grossly exaggerating the problem and doing so in an apparently misguided attempt to convince the lone company in the industry that doesn't need convincing. I suspect that its not the company they're actually trying to convince on these message boards, hence the hyperbole and straw men that are so often advanced as hard fact.

I know everyone loves to talk about art but the OP was not about art.

It was about NPC interaction with PCs.

And calling someone out for hyperbole is silly.:
The whole point about hyperbole is that it is not deceptive: everyone can see that this is exaggeration to emphasise.
Otherwise it isn't hyperbole, it's lying.
For example, if I get a 3% raise and I tell everyone I got a 10% raise that is a lie.
However, if I tell everyone I got a 99% rise and punch the air, they know I'm exaggerating (either to show excitement, or to be ironic).

Presman was using the common, accepted rhetorical technique of hyperbole to (a) show that it is a significant factor and (b) admit that he doesn't have exact numbers.

I can't believe I am having to explain hyperbole... darn interwebz!

I disagree with this.

Firstly, if you are not consciously considering rac/sex/politics then your subconsious assumptions and biases will come through. Race/sex/politics will still be there, it just won't be deliberate.
In my experience, great art is deliberate.
Also, we cannot interpret art without our own agendas. We can either acknowledge them or pretend they don't exist. My experience is that pretending they don't exist is limiting.
All art is a dialogue between creator and audience.

Most of the folks who wrote all straight+white+male superhero teams were not consciously trying to promote straight+white+male: they just wrote what 'came naturally' to them and there assumptions and biases shone through.

Sailing To Byzantium

I
That is no country for old men. The young
In one another's arms, birds in the trees
---Those dying generations---at their song,
The salmon-falls, the mackerel-crowded seas,
Fish, flesh, or fowl commend all summer long
Whatever is begotten, born, and dies.
Caught in that sensual music all neglect
Monuments of unaging intellect.

II
An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress,
Nor is there singing school but studying
Monuments of its own magnificence;
And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
To the holy city of Byzantium.

III
O sages standing in God's holy fire
As in the gold mosaic of a wall,
Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,
And be the singing-masters of my soul.
Consume my heart away; sick with desire
