What people ask for and what they really want (and are willing to pay for) is not always the same.

See "Art of Dragon Magazine" hardcover for a perfect example of how vocal support and numerous requests plus an excellent product equal next to no sales.

Aw c'mon, despite Erastil not being that backwards anymore, not all Good deities are perfect. Iomedae waterboards people using electricity and Ragathiel is an omnicidial psychopath. Cayden is a horrible example for the young, Desna is a commie hippie, Shelyn is a hippie commie, Torag is just plain inhuman and Sarenrae failed to kill Rovagug, which clearly means she's in cahoots with him.

The feat 'Dirty Fighting' is worth the entire asking price of this book. I mean, it single-handedly solves one of the massive problems of martials, which is "I need some combination of Int 13, Dex 13, Combat Experise and IUS to qualify for anything cool /sadpandaface". I just really wish this feat makes its way into a hardcover book at later date, because gems like this one are easily to overlook.

Nope, but you're duplicating megabytes of content on WotC/GiTP/TGD/BG/Paizo/Enworld forums that have dealt with the exact topic. I mean, it's one of the most iconic discussions on the 3e ruleset and its derivatives.

Well, the PCs get to

Spoiler:

take part in a riot,
contact the local dissidents,
start up a rebel operation,
engage in espionage and counter-espionage,
receive a mysterious bouquet of roses,
meet several recurring villains,
sabotage stuff,
kick some loyalist royalist diabolist booty while at all of the above.

It's a very much different AP from Giantslayer. And I love that!

Having been thoroughly miffed by Giantslayer, I am happy to say this campaign looks freaking awesome.

Also, I am delighted by the fact that the "outlawing mint" is actually in the adventure. Well played Crystal, well played.

I don't like Pathfinder, but Paizo's Orbital Mind Control Lasers keep forcing me to like it. Sometimes, I break free of their control and scream "RIFTS! I WANNA BE A GLITTER BOY!" at night, but then Cosmo flips the switch and once again I revert to an unapologetic rabid fanboy mode.

On a slightly more serious note, my absolutely favourite RPG is Ars Magic, but given lack of GMs/players for that one, I'm going with the game that has the most support material available and features many things that lift weight from DM shoulders.

Your tone is really problematic and I think you should step away from the keyboard and check your blood pressure.
Please calm down, Gorbacz. Your patronizing tone is not conducive to a healthy discussion and is indicative of a deep-seated emotional complex related to one of your great-aunts.

Now you little scrampy Cleaver, you stop disrespectfully disregarding the traumatic wartime experiences of my great-aunt which left her with an intense phobia of communist kobolds overrunning her quarters. That's not conductive to anything and represents a typical display of Amurican ignorance as to complex Yurpeen history.

You can. One just needs to quit acting like if his/her house got burned down when some aspect of his/her favorite game of pretend-to-be-an-elf goes some other way than wished for.

If you look at the Mythos and related material, you can find "purist" approach which is about hopeless humanity standing no chance against cosmic horrors in some basement in Arkham, abd the "pulp" approach which is about throwing dynamite at cosmic horrors in an airplane somewhere above Shangri-La. Pathfinder obviously leans towards the latter, and is not the first RPG to do so - Trail of Cthulhu has rules and adventures for both narrative styles. I think Chaosium has a pulp sourcebook for Call of Cthulhu as well.

Last time Paizo dabbled in software development, we got the Game Space, which is in development limbo.

Mobile apps are even worse, because you need to handle at least two ecosystems (Droid and IOS).

You're right, we can communicate this better. I'm actively trying to see what my team can do on this front while everyone is at the show. This doesn't change previous issues, but rest assured it's not being ignored.

I want to be clear that no matter HOW upsetting the constant nerf-storm has been since crane-wing maybe, I really do appreciate people like you and Mark coming on and interacting with us. I just wish that the people that make the final decisions on these things would pop in once in a while.

And as others have said, I'd love to see some kind of poll put out for some of the more controversial changes. It would give a tangible view of how many people are for/against it before something radical gets done.

Given that the forum goers are a tiny, and hardly representative, fraction of the playerbase, that wouldn't be in the slightest indicative of anything.

I have been skeptical about Pathfinder for a long time, and I am sure I've made that clear before. The recent direction only makes me wanna go back to 3.5e that much harder.

Yeah, a party of a Healer, Warmage, Truenamer and 3.5 Swashbuckler is all the rage that Pathfinder lacks.

Especially when they face a bunch of un-errated Nimblewrights.

I wouldn't discount magnuskn's experiences, mythic rules do kind of bubble up if used by a group of optimizers. A casual group might get a kick out of it, but more crunch-oriented players will quickly exploit the system.

Yes magunskn, that was me agreeing with you. You can stop cleaning your monitor right now.

However, mythic works perfectly as means of powering up monsters to present surprising challenges to non-mythic groups.

On the topic, Skulls'n'Shackles has the whole ship development and naval combat thing, but I ditched it quickly and run the AP without them. Nobody complains.

It is 3:49 AM here, but the flight to Gencon beckons me...before I go, though, I'll say this: I'm super psyched that you guys are loving what you see! Since negative feedback is more likely to motivate people to say something than positive, it always makes my day to see it when people who are liking something I worked on come in here to post about it!

I believe this is in no small part due to the fact that it's much harder to lash out at things that have the stewardship of super cool people who actively engage in discussion. I mean, compare OA threads or threads championed by Golarion lore folks to ACG threads. Punching an anonymous "Mr. Failzo Designer" in the face over the Internet is easier than telling the Nice Guy/Gal Mark/James/Crystal/Erik that their work is utter failure of humanity.

Engaging the community, as utterly frustrating it can sometimes be, does make wonders. I can see several people who were extremely caustic in rules-related threads change considerably once Mark decided to forgo his nights and holidays in order to double as the spokesperson of the rules team.

Call me crazy, but I think it's possible for rational people to discuss religion and politics and keep it civil.

Up to a point.

And then we duel.

Parallel design is nothing new. And I don't think it's a problem - if three companies decided to put out reinterpretation of 3.5 psionics, I wouldn't begrudge them for stepping one each other's toes, but be happy that there's more to choose from. Also I wouldn't expect them to hold their creativity back and wait until Paizo makes up their mind on that particular slice of design.

I'd like to state on the record that the way Mark interacts with the community is absolutely awesome. It goes for other Paizo staff too, but insofar I've had the idea that the lore arm of Paizo was much more on the ball in this department.

Yes. Poor DMs players take more than an hour to choose their race in the future...

I think it's about time you accept the fact that people have differing tastes, and your target group of "people who want to stare at colour art of their favourite mythological creature" is quite likely somewhat smaller than the groups of "people who want interesting monsters to challenge their players with" and "folks who are looking for cool playable races, cohorts, summons and planar binds".
