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.

99% of Paizo crunch is open content, so it will find its way into AoN and d20pfsrd. Additionally, since Archives of Nethys operates under the Community Use Policy, it can actually refer proper Golarion-related names, unlike d20pfsrd which has to cauterize everything as they don not fall under the CUP and can't use Paizo IP in any way.

I always get a laugh out of veteran WFRP players who come back to me with "man, is the Pathfinder world rauchy!" comment. They don't see it as a negative, but are surprised by how often things that go bump in the nearby bush actually turn up as plot elements or NPC/PC modus operandi.

I also enjoy the fact that it encourages players to actually relate to sexuality of their PCs over the course of campaign. But on the other hand it doesn't force anybody into anything, so if you want to play yer asexual dwarven tunnel warrior whose only addiction is booze, fine. :)

Now, having read it, I think it gives the final adventure of Kingmaker a run for its money. However, given that while Song of Thousand Screams was outstanding, it was barely connected to the rest of AP, so Crystal's adventure wins on the count of being a natural extension of the campaign.

Also, weredinosaurs.

Paizo should totally print a Dryad who helps the party, protects the local communities, leads wayward children back home safe, fights the evil fey, aids Good druids and rangers an at the same time keeps a harem of charmed oh hi Mikaze ORCS and keeps brutally treating them as sex slaves/cannon fodder AND leave her alignment out of the statblocks because giggles.

The ensuring alignment flame war would be nothing but glorious.

I think there is a difference in level between "not nice" and using magic to coerce someone into abandoning their homes to protect a forest on your whims+being your sexual object.

Though in your campaigns you can do whatever you want man.

First, the Bestiary clearly states that dryads are benign and they resort only to killing evil foes. Second, "charmed admirers" might as well be orcs, drow, goblins, bandits or whatever other Evil crap that happened to try and have a go at a dryad's tree. So, if you got charmed, you likely deserved it.

And if your GM is of that type of alignmentary absolutist, I'd consider finding a new one. He'll likely set you up for a "let an orphanage of goblin kids burn down or save them?" situation sooner than later, and we'll have one more fun thread about what alignments truly mean in D&D.

Minotaur is Jason's own brand. He works on it on his own time. He's salaried: he doesn't get overtime. Paizo doesn't own his nights and weekends.

Or is your position that if Paizo wants to give him 120 hours a week of work that he's not allowed to do anything for himself?

That and he should post his holiday plans at least 6 months ahead so that True Forum Fans know where his absence from messageboards is justified and warranted.

Second Darkness is the most flawed AP, but it has some awesome potential. I think it would be the one most in need of a makeover.

But if we're not talking about correcting issues, then I'd say Kingmaker. And since this is a complete fantasy, why not make it a big boxed set with a player's guide for Kingdom building and some play-set style punchout cardstock city building materials.

Yep.

And a VHS tape with an animated film! I really wonder why they stopped doing those.

I value Paizo for innovation, be it bold new themes or new takes on old ones. CotCT, while a very traditionalist story overall, has had more than enough super cool twists and elements in it to make it count. But Giantslayer, which is right around the corner, sounds and feels much less exciting than Hell's Rebels - where it was enough to drop the words "Cheliax, rebellion, infernal contracts, Thrune, masked ball" to get me going. "Fight <INSERT RANDOM GIANT TYPE> at <INSERT RANDOM LOCATION>, repeat 5 times, fight" sounds dull in comparison.

Shattered Star was a competent AP. Unfortunately for it, 'competent' doesn't cut it if you're sitting on the shelf next to CotCT, Kingmaker, Iron Gods and AoW.

As for Giantslayer, I hope that this obvious attempt to placate the traditionalist crowd by playing on their GDQ nostalgia will backfire in a spectacular manner and lead to Paizo's higher ups greenlighting THE INEVITABLE DISTANT WORLDS SPACESHIPS AND LAZORS AP.

Hey there. To give some perspective from the avatar/moderation bot in addition to the reasons above: we get that having an avatar that is more unique or personal would be cool. However, the time we would spend filtering through images to make sure that they don't break our Community Guidelines is probably better spent on cool projects that our team does as their official respective jobs, improvements for our community, and making more avatars for our general pool (hm... I need to get on that one).

Pay someone just for that?

... that and having moderators that do the moderation job on holidays and weekend (less moderation to do when coming back from those)

Hiring somebody to check if uploaded forum avatars aren't ducks (except, not ducks) or obscure artwork from a WotC product which could lead to a C&D letter and to argue with some nutjob who thinks that rejecting his avatar of mutilated corpse of Noam Chomsky violates his First Amendment rights is one of the worst ROI possible, ever.
