Get a lawyer. I mean, an actual one, not some weird hack who fights flamewars on Internet boards while disguised as a bag of devouring. Doesn't need to be Matt Murdock Foggy Nelson, but needs a basic grasp of IP law and licensing agreements such as the OGL. Check with him/her what open content, product identity are. Make sure you are aware that Paizo and WotC are domiciled in the US of A and the legal implications of that fact. And don't put any female nipples on the cover or there will be consequences.

I have heard of the Mournblade but what was Stormbringer from?

If your heard about one then you must have heard of the other, since they are "brethren" and come from the same book series by the same author.

Don't know. I like the new version better though-you shouldn't be able to use the options without actually following the deity. I was surprised that you could.

Why? It makes perfect sense that an individual could study a technique without accepting all of the themes attached to it. How would this be any different from say a Taldan person from Taldor studying a Tien fighting style or even an Osirini one?

It's not an option that adds flavor or fun, but one that instead strips it.

Because allowing a follower of Lamashtu to use sacred techniques of Iomedae is silly. Just as having an Amurican swordsman rock a katana is less silly than having a Catholic Priest exercise yoga in the middle of the mass.

What do your lawyer senses read, Toothy Bag?

I'll tell you in a moment, checking the HTML code of the contest page for hidden clauses, like any self-respecting lawyer would do.

Pathfinder bestiaries are always fantastically illustrated, feature sound and consistent CR, great spread of types, themes and inspirations, frequently showcase outstanding design (whoever designed the Wyrmwraith in B5 - much love!) AND have dinosaurs in every book. What's not to love?

Most Romani and related groups find the term insulting. You can argue to your heart's content that "gypsy" invokes colourful wagons full of fun-loving people, but over here, it invokes stereotypes of "unwashed car thieves who refuse to integrate with our glorious Slavic societies and chose to live in ghettos full of grime and crime". And it gets worse in Slovakia and Hungary, trust me.

Cheers. I guess I've just missed that subtext in my readings of the word (although I'm going to plead geographical isolation as my defence).

FWIW, I wasn't intending to "argue" the meaning - it's just I've never heard all those negative connotations. (If anything I would have labelled the gypsy stereotype as a bit fanciful and romantic in the too-good-to-be-true vein). I'm happy to concede I was wrong though.

Oh, one could write a PhD or two about how wildly different is the perception of Roma in the West and in the East.

To be honest and clear, a lot of the positive stereotype has solid grounds in reality - the Roma have a fascinating culture and contributed a lot to cultures of nations where they are present.

However, the word "gypsy" has been used in European (British, Irish) English as a slur against not only Roma, but also several less-known nomadic peoples, such as the Irish Travellers. Pretty much the same happened to cognates of the greek tziganoi such as the German Zigeuner or Polish cygan.

Only the French managed to partially dodge the bullet by calling Roma Bohémiens and later developing the whole bohemian topos of wine, absinthe, dance, poverty, brothels, Moulin Rouge and Nicole Kidman kissing Ewan McGregor. So it's still kind of more about sultry girls dancing alluringly among colourful wagons.

I find it odd to claim that the mindflayer was created by WoTC. They were in earlier editions of d&d that Wizards did not own. Also, they appeared in the original final fantasy games on the NES.

WotC bought all TSR intellectual property, including previous editions of D&D, with mindflayers included.

And Square did use Mind Flayers in Final Fantasy fully and brazenly violating TSR IP ... except they didn't get lawsuited, likely for a host of reasons with "we're in the US, they're in Japan" and "you kind of can't copyright a squid-headed humanoid and their lore in FF is completely different from the D&D lore so there's a big chance a Japanese judge will award us some silly damages that won't even justify the lawsuit" being a major factor. International litigation is a beach, been there, got a counterfeit Chinese t-shirt.

If I recall my limited Russian correctly, "chort" means "devil"...so a devil called a devil--just Russian instead of English (or Common?)?

Chort = 'Demon' in oh so many Slavic languages. The word for 'devil' is 'diabol' or thereabouts.

On the bright side, many of these will be reprints from Iron Gods which you missed out!

Just want Crystal's word on whether Hobgoblin=getting attacked by town NPCs.

I'm kinda over it, anyway, I just wanted to hear Crystal's input. The lack of feats/traits/plot hooks and the constant time sink are what made me drop the idea.

Now, as for a little goblin...that might be interesting.

I do not exist as the developer to rubber-stamp anyone's character concepts

In your home game you're welcome to play whatever you, your GM, and your fellow players find entertaining. You can have hobgoblins in your homegame act like any of the core races, with some good and some bad. If you want to play a hobgoblin in this AP, it will require additional work on your GM's part.

If it's not too late, I'd plug for a upper-med CR (9-11) humanoid aquatic undead. WotC had the Drowned, Tome of Horrors had the Brykolakalakakakas, I'd love to see something new here. Lacedons just don't cut at later levels :)

Extracting anything of note from fiction (which varies greatly in quality) is much more time-and-energy consuming than lifting a statblock or information from a support article. I'm paying stupid big money for my APs, I want my buck to give me a bang, ads and fiction don't give me the bang - I can live with ads (but honestly, print ads in 2016?) but fiction makes me grind my teeth since Burnt Offerings.

If I want to read quality prose, I have a massive backlog of great books from cool authors (including PF Tales!) waiting for me. I don't want to wade through some sometimes stellar, sometimes less so short stories stretchered over 6 months in order to perhaps find some nugget that might be relevant to the game I'm running.

Die, fiction, die.

...what?

No.

Playing the same race as the antagonists is not the same as playing a class or alignment which directly contradicts the theme of the game.

Yes, it's still trying to get a square block into a round hole. Your GM will have to put in lots of additional work into making it work. Why do you want to make your GM's life harder? Running a good game is enough work as it is.
