A gift card sub where the user set the amount to be bought and converted to credit each month would be great. (Even better if they could also select the day the transaction happened).
Yep, that would be spot on.
I really hope that Paizo can sort out their release schedule.
Doubling up on products for three months in a row gives me a real headache in justifying a subscription to myself, let alone my fiance.
Maybe Paizo should think about cancelling a future, unannounced book and pushing everything back.
If you can't keep up with your current schedule then maybe the schedule is wrong?
Pretty much exactly my thoughts/feelings.
It makes me wonder from the other direction: if a Kickstarter project like this had a delivery estimate of 12-16 months after the KS finished, would that put you off?
edit = that's a general question, not aimed specifically at Shifty.
Perhaps that accurately portrays your DnD experience, but not mine.

To test, try persuading a large group of people to do something without making a sound.
Then compare with this linky.
Body-language is the icing on the cake, not the cake.
So, a question, James: what is your favourite speech (fictional or real)?

So, now I'm listening to old hip-hop all day. Good call, Doodlebug.
Same question for you then: What would be the advantage for me, a long-time Pathfinder superscriber?
To my mind, that's the PC's job.

Has anyone ever tried asking them for a lot more detail?
Like, one or two people approaching each one and asking them to explain their protest and ideas, maybe making notes, and just dragging that out for hours.
Plus, your then close enough to complain if they shout in your ear.
Ooh, similar to this bit of ironicality from 2004.
Golfclapping is weak sauce.

After my whinging and moaning this turned out to be a great read.
Not only were the characters intriguing and sympathetic (the central protagonist is as close to CG as you can get while remaining CN) but the writing was much more elegant and controlled than City of Fallen Sky.
I loved the banter between the five characters, excellent.
This is great:
I am with my party because...: 1d437 ⇒ 126
126. They have a book describing how the world will be ended by demons. They've accidentally foiled the Elven Resistance Movement. As a druid, maybe I should stay nearby to see what they're up to next.
Even Razor Coast has been delayed, and that was already written before the KS.
All kickstarters have delays because all projects have delays.
We don't normally see the delays in retail projects because we only see final release, now we're entangled in the process.
I hope nobody here is hanging on for Paizo Game Space!
Hmmm ok, that may or may not alter things... stuff from the US can be relatively quick (my Pathfinder stuff always arrived quickly!) but wonder how they will be shipping out the Reaper sets?
All of the bones are in the Reaper warehouse in the US.
They just need to sort and send lots and lots of orders.
I find it weird disappointing that a bunch of 3pp and PFSRD are chucking the word 'official' about in a potentially confusing way.
I'm glad Owen Stephens chose his words more carefully.
So, let's try to be clear. Completely clear:
Hey, Mavrickindigo, There is no official Paizo psionics product.
It seems that Dreamscarred Press' Psionics Unleashed is the most popular psionics ruleset available. As such it also has the most support from other publishers. However, PsionicsUnleashed has no official Paizo support and has never been used in any Paizo product.
Finally, to finish answering your question, Paizo has not currently announced any plans for psionic rules. Some Paizo employees (notably James Jacobs) have suggested that if they made Psionics rules they would be Vancian, rather than using Power Points, and would be called something like Psionic Magic.

I am jealous but I'm not annoyed.
This is the best deal I've ever seen: an absolute bargain. The fact that they're giving me three times the minis I signed up for in exchange for a few months delay is something I am completely chuffed about. Chuffed to bits.

And, beyond that, what possible reasoning could there be behind lumping atheists together as having anything in common with one another, beyond simply not believing in a deity? Their atheism is a lack of belief, not the presence of a massive set of core tenets of faith.
Most of us are guilty of seeing the world through our own prisms.
I've met plenty of religious people who view atheism as another option on the menu of religions.
They don't realise that, in the terms of that metaphor, atheism is choosing not to eat. Ever.
For a long time, I used to do the reverse: I perceived the religious as insincere and/or dupes. This was unfair and it came about because I viewed them through my own prism.
If all you have is a hammer, all of your problems start to look like nails...
A lot of good stuff in that post but not this bit.
Non-barter sales are a product of retail-chains and absent-management.
Haggling has a long and noble history.
'Computer says no' is pretty recent.
I feel kind of sorry for that guy.
He doesn't seem to understand how easy it is to just apologise and move on.
Instead he's moved some goalposts around from
His style is scary too... writing in a way that implies that Creighton is dodging some kind of issue because 'he won't come out and back a reviewers code like he should!'
Incidentally, a reviewers code is a terrible idea.
I think what you'll find, and is perhaps the reason why the Stormwind Fallacy can often be relevant, is that many people mature/develop in their playstyle without wanting to learn new rulesets or change genre.
If you began playing 3e when you were 15 and learnt to optimise and enjoy character-creation and combat-triumph... you might now be using the same ruleset (almost) and have 10+ years of experience. As such you can probably optimise, balance and adjust characters with little effort.
This player, now 25+, might well be crafting emotionally-rich characters full of RP potential. But she/he can also drop a powerful build on that concept in twenty minutes.
Paizo talked before about this not being in their gift to provide.
The comics are a licensed product, like the minis, so Paizo cannot control relase schedule. I'm sure they have influence but not the final say-so.
That's how I remember it, anyway.

Nobody seems to have really made such a statement (well, there's always the comrade...), instead they have opined that certain wage differentials are unseemly.
Now, it just so happens that I have an uncle who can read and understand documents like that. In fact, he wrote documents like that (now semi-retired). He has made it pretty clear to me that understanding and applying such economic theories is not an especially mighty feat. In fact, he has taught many people to understand documents like that.
To be honest, it reminds me of the archaeological journals I read at university. Should I earn 354 times the salary of the average worker simply because I can read journals which assume prior knowledge.
Most journals do this, part of the point of journals is that they're specialist publications which don't bother to explain themselves to the uninitiated.
So, here are some direct questions for you:
I get that it is some kind of exercise, what with being in a gym, but to me squat means either 'short' or 'sitting on your heels'.
He can put 500lb on his heels? It can't be that but I don't know what it is.
To be honest, I'm not overly interested: it just struck me as strange that someone would post in such an opaque manner.
