Ah, dedicated moderators. Finally, a challenge worthy of me. So, does a Paladin violate the code when he or she drinks decaf?

But I've ran games where those classes go on for several encounters, rest, and continue as if nothing.

That's a problem of how you run your games, not how the classes are designed.

Any new monsters?

Do we get new info on Aroden?

Are paladins of Asmodeus legal again?

Anything on Darklight Sisterhood?

Stats for gods, maybe?

I sure hope there are no robotz with lazors in there.

Surely you should send the link when the order goes to pending, as that's when you actually take my cash?!?
Because they don't take the cash until it ships. See this FAQ.

Well maybe the banks here in NZ do things differently, because my account is debited before my order moves to shipped. The funds are no longer accessible by me, i.e., I have paid for them.

I understand that Paizo may not receive my money for some time after that (I worked in Finance for over 11 years), but the point remains that I have paid. As the authorisation has been successful, the funds have been confirmed to be present, and set aside for Paizo so at that point there is no danger of them not receiving their cash.

So I ask again, why do I have to wait for the warehouse to get round to ship my order (which usually seems to be at the bottom of the stack) to be able to download my pdfs when payment for them has been set aside from my account for usually well over a week previously?

What reason is there for not allowing access to the pdfs once the order has been authorised? Payment is assured at that point. There is no risk, only goodwill, and swift delivery of goods paid for.

Well, having worked in finances for 11 years you surely do know that authorisations on bank accounts don't last forever. The usual expiry date is 7 days. So, consider this scenario:

April 7th: Paizo authorises your acc and gives you access to your PDFs.
April 14th: Auth expires.
April 16th: Paizo comes around to sending your order (since it's on the bottom of the stack) and charges your card, but the money isn't there any more. Maybe it's because that wasn't a credit card but a flat/pre-paid card and you spent the money on something else in the mean time, or maybe because a bailiff put an order on your account to seize overdue alimony (in most jurisdictions, bailiff seizure orders override any other authorisations and charges short of other seizure orders), or some other reason.

In either case, you have the PDFs, Paizo has nothing, and in the quite possible event that this happened because you wanted to have free stuff and get away with it, there's little short of international litigation that Paizo can do about it.

I wish the Campaign Settings would come out before the associated Adventure Paths to help GMs prepare additional background flavor...

Most GMs (at least, myself and all GMs I play with) never run APs before they have all 6 parts, so that's not much of an issue.

Crowdfunding solves precisely zero problems here, because the biggest problem with hardcover rereleases is that they clog up the manpower and the regular release schedule, and both are pretty vital if you're running a business based around a stead monthly flow of product (and income).

Divination is flat-out the best school, if you're talking power level. Conjuration is close second, because Foo Lion Spam > reality.

Whatever a Rogue can do, a Wizar...no, wait, a Slayer, an Inquisitor, a Melee Bard or an Alchemist can do just as good if not better. There's a reason they're getting reworked in Unchained, ya know.

Specialisation - ever seen a moderately optimised party that goes along the lines of Cleric/Wizard/Paladin/Slayer?

Also, let's not forget that the pnp RPG market is 70-80% US+Canada, 20-30% ROW - and ROW includes Kiwis, Kangaroos, Brits and other English-speaking areas where RPGs are quite popular.

I'll tell you what - during the 90s, it was impossible to sell an RPG here if it wasn't translated into Polish. English books were freaking hard to come by, and I've actually had to smuggle quite a few from the Sauerkrautland.

Fast forward to 2015? A respected company tries to crowdfund translations of Shadowrun and Earthdawn, fails miserably, nobody needs a Polish translation any more. English proficiency is rising at rates which will soon overtake the Nordics. TAKE THAT, SWEDES!

I believe the same holds true for most areas of this planet where RPGs are being played to some degree.

Except for the crazy Japanese, who did a full fan translation of the entire open material for Pathfinder, and the French, because they get cooties every time they read something in a foreign language.

D&D is a big brand. Over in US and Canada, at least, D&D is synonymous with an entire hobby. But it's a big brand with a tiny target market, so what WotC is doing that's trying to take the big brand to new markets. That's very sensible, and likely also an indicator that the pnp RPG hobby is shrinking. Over 25 years of playing CCGs, board games, wargames and RPGs I've seen the first three hobbies explode in popularity, while the RPGs have their glory days long gone.

What, Asmodeus CR 36? That's two rounds of combat from a moderately optimized mid-level party, and when I say "moderately optimized" I mean that even chimpanzees could do that, let alone human beings who actually comprehend what 'math' and 'balance' mean.

The leveling-up guides for EACH level for each class up through 20th level seems like a great idea!
Unless those guides include fun stuff from the APG, I don't see how useful they are? Unless you're playing a CRB only game, in that case rock on!
One of the important aspects of the Strategy Guide is that it suggests several routes a player might take to build an effective but not monstrously optimized character—one that will be both fun and fairly powerful. When it comes to teaching the game and familiarizing someone with the options, limiting the material to the Core Rulebook's contents makes the process much more approachable. Also, by the time one has gained a few levels following this book's advice, that player is likely in a much better headspace to look at the other Pathfinder RPG sourcebooks available and assess whether or not any additional options are good choices.

In that case it's going to be funny when someone picks Druid :) I wonder if they mention the trick that Druids can in fact wear barding to shore up wildshape AC, or that becoming a Dire Tiger is the business! That way they can become better Fighters than the actual fighters.

If that's how you view classes and gameplay in general, I sincerely doubt that you're the target group for this book.

Yes. You can treat that as a compliment. You're smarter, more observant and analytical than 99% of unwashed masses who play this game without paying attention to BASIC CONSIDERATIONS such as "what other classes can I make obsolete by wildshaping into a barding-wearing Dire Tiger?" or "can I throw the guy who picked Rogue out of the window? He's a liability and dead weight for the party". All the power to you and utmost respect to your mental faculties, yet still, you're not the target group.

Good luck transitioning a level 15 AD&D Elven Fighter/Cleric into BECMI without any changes.
The base systems are close enough that you literally do not have to make any changes, that's my point. Will it be a 100% RAW BECMI character? No. But it's playable, and the pre-3E games didn't tend to have as may people waiting with spreadsheets, ready to pounce on tiny errors as SOME editions have.

Actually, transitioning said Ftr/Clr between 3e/3.5e/PF is far simpler than making a move between an edition where elves are a race to an edition where elves are a class.

Games Workshop are large enough that they're required by law to make their annual report available online. That lists annual revenue around £120 million for several years now.

Privateer Press had annual revenue of $15 million in 2010. They've haven't grown anywhere near fast enough to be close to GW.

And it's not as if the IcV2 data doesn't include miniatures, if there's any assumption that they mean anything. Guess what they think is number one.

You can have all the revenue in the world, but it's profit that counts. GW, at 120m rev, has had its profits fall from annual 30m in 2010 to ca. 12m in 2014. That's ... harsh, to say at least, for a publicly traded company with a business model that's not exactly the most flexible one out there.

I don't think Priavteer is publicly traded, so any numbers will be hard to come by and hardly reliable, and 2010 is an age ago in wargaming business. But everybody whom I know to play GW games actively jumped ship already, so there's to that.
