Can I request Reiko in a goth loli maid outfit? And no probs with such outfit revealing anything related to the "is Reiko a boy or a girl?" situation, Alto Saotome made a precedent that your gender doesn't matter when it comes to that particular costume.
The only thing you can achieve by pitching something like that here is make sure that Paizo will certainly not create an adventure path in that vein.
To expand upon Zaister's thought - it's because the last Paizo wants to is to wrestle with a lawsuit.
Or rather - the last thing they want to is to have you lose the lawsuit, because of the " Users posting messages to the site automatically grant Paizo Inc the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, sublicense, copy and distribute such messages throughout the world in any media." boilerplate.
Which means that by posting here, all your ideas are belong to Paizo. So before you post any works of yours that would not fall under the OGL anyway, think twice.
It never ceases to amaze me how strongly people feel about "Good" in D&D. I mean, you can put pretty much anything in a book about demons/devils - from baby-eating skin-wearing chainsaw-wielding splatter to "vaguely CNish bordering on redemption" and everybody is cool, except that one person who was tricked by their (ha!) friends into watching Martyrs and how as a panic trigger button that goes off every time the topic of flaying somebody's skin alive is brought up.
But put out a book about heavens and you suddenly get folks get up their arms about things such as their ideal vision of what celestials should look like, what their mental stats should be, what 'goodness' exactly is, how Arshea shouldn't be Good because she's really CN or how Ragathiel is really LE (yep, I'm a bit guilty of the last one) and what pronouns should be used in the context of ultimate benevolence.
I mean, folks, take a walk, go to a church, talk to Father Spirit, experience some divine transcendence on the top of the impossible mountain and realise that this is just a game of pretend-elves.
Both elements should be present, as "horror" is everything from ghost stories to splatter-gore.
And I disagree that horror is all about gore these days. Many recent outstanding additions to the genre across all media, from The Babadok and The Conjuring to SOMA, Alien:Isolation and Five Nights at Freddy's all short on splatter and high on dread and scare by ambience
They'll still want to kill Hitler instead of doing whatever they were supposed to do in the first place.
by Dr. Gerard Nolst Trenité
Dearest creature in creation
I will keep you, Susy, busy,
Pray, console your loving poet,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain
Now I surely will not plague you
Previous, precious, fuchsia, via
Say, expecting fraud and trickery:
Wholly, holly, signal, signing,
From "desire": desirable - admirable from "admire",
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Tortoise, turquoise, chamois-leather,
Have you ever yet endeavoured
Billet does not end like ballet;
Banquet is not nearly parquet,
Ricocheted and crocheting, croquet?
Is your R correct in higher?
Say abscission with precision,
Twopence, threepence, tease are easy,
Of such puzzling words as nauseous,
Would you like some more? You'll have it!
Liberty, library, heave and heaven,
Mark the difference, moreover,
Camel, constable, unstable,
Suit, suite, ruin. Circuit, conduit
Muscle, muscular, gaol, iron,
Ivy, privy, famous; clamour
Golf, wolf, countenance, lieutenants
"Solder, soldier! Blood is thicker",
Stranger does not rhyme with anger,
Arsenic, specific, scenic,
Say inveigh, neigh, but inveigle,
And I bet you, dear, a penny,
Arch, archangel; pray, does erring
Perseverance, severance. Ribald
Don't be down, my own, but rough it,
Say in sounds correct and sterling
Now you need not pay attention
Nor are proper names included,
No, my maiden, coy and comely,
But mind trivial and vial,
Argil, gill, Argyll, gill. Surely
Had this invalid invalid
Zeus, Thebes, Thales, Aphrodite,
Please don't monkey with the geyser,
Pious, impious, limb, climb, glumly,
The TH will surely trouble you
Thompson, Chatham, Waltham, Streatham,
The archaic word albeit
Shoes, goes, does . Now first say: finger;
Hero, heron, query, very,
Faugh, oppugnant, keen oppugners,
Though the difference seems little,
Reefer does not rhyme with deafer,
Gaelic, Arabic, pacific,
Say manoeuvre, yacht and vomit,
Sea, idea, guinea, area,
Compare alien with Italian,
Say aver, but ever, fever,
Starry, granary, canary,
Bass, large, target, gin, give, verging,
Mind the O of off and often
Pudding, puddle, putting. Putting?
Seven is right, but so is even,
A of valour, vapid, vapour,
Differ like diverse and divers,
Pronunciation - think of Psyche! -
It's a dark abyss or tunnel
Don't you think so, reader, rather,
Hiccough has the sound of sup...
Lisa is a co-author, producer and manager of RPGs since late 80s. She was one of the people behind the original editions of Ars Magica and Vampire: the Masquerade. Her RPG street cred makes most gentlemen in the business look late younglings who barely joined the hobby.
I, for one, consider dropping the sanity system out of Strange Aeons to be a great decision. Pathfinder is a game about fantasy superheroes, and while I'm fine with them throwing fireballs at shoggoths in a very pulpy interpretation of Mythos, having people who spar with archdevils balk at some book of weird names and myths would be annoyingly disconnecting.
No. I just got mine, I can confirm that everybody who gets this PDF is immediately whisked 2 days into the future, what became obvious to me the moment I noticed the "First Printing April 2016" line in the book.
You might want to cancel all your arrangements for today and tomorrow before you download the file, just to be on the safe side.
You might have flagged yourself, but have you flagellated as well? Because if not, I'm afraid it doesn't count and it's straight to Hell for ya, you filthy LN(E) scum... ;)
