Which was to say, I got married on September 20 2014! Life has been so hectic ever since that I've barely had time for our Awesome Community, so I totally forgot to brag about it here.

Of course, my wife is an avid RPGer too, we met at a gaming convention and I offered her a spot in my Skulls and Shackles campaign. Our first proper date was cleverly disguised as "character creation". We used 4d6 drop lowest and there was a lot of rolling in the days to follow. Now we're looking forward to visiting the real-world equivalent of Shackles in December as part of our honeymoon campaign.

Some day, we will make it together to PaizoCon. You won't know what hit you, Seattle.

(And yes, I'll link the wedding pic gallery here once it's available!)

Hungary and Poland are actually two separate countries, thank you very much.

I'm DM'ing 2 Paizo APs (Reign of Winter and Skulls and Shackles), Emerald Spire and a campaign which is effectively a string of unconnected adventures, most of them Paizo or 3PP stuff.

I've ran RotRL (almost complete), Way of the Wicked (abandoned because we all agreed that it sucks donkey balls), Jade Regent (abandoned due to romantic conflicts within the player group), Serpent's Skull (abandoned due to party deciding that D&D is a primitive hack'n'slash not suited to their refined tastes) and another string of unconnected adventures (abandoned due to two players moving out of town).

And yes, I have one-and-a-half of a full time job, am married, and have a cat.

Howzabout making an exception to the rule and releasing ACG errata despite not having to reprint the book yet? While I adore much of the content, it could certainly do with an update, not the least to make sure one can read a thread about ACG without having to wade through "I felt sexually assaulted by this book" comments from our resident, erm, "passionate gamers"?

I can't think of an offline gaming company that's more encouraging for diversity than Paizo. They have girls, boys, t-rexes, Cosmo, straight, LGBTI, white, non-white, human beings of all shapes and sizes, political views, culinary diets and tastes in C-class cinema. The fact that there are no female rules designers out there is because the tectonic shift from a male basement pastime to a hobby for everyone isn't quite there yet as to generate enough female talent, but the pendulum swings and one day we'll get there. Processes take time, and we should find comfort that they progress much more rapidly within geek hobbies than they do in business or politics.

A +2 CR creature is supposed to be roughly twice as powerful (or at least, worth twice as many points in encounter design and meant to threaten PCs two levels higher) as the original. A +3 CR creature close to 250% of their original power. Do you really think a creature that gains Uncanny Dodge, DR 1/-, +4 Str, and Rage qualifies, beyond attaching it to the lowest CR creatures?

Is a Marilith with this template the same threat level as a Pit Fiend?

If you treat CR guidelines as a religion, fine, slap 18 levels of Expert onto a Troll and go complain that it doesn't hold its ground next to an Astral Deva. You'll have my sympathy. Maybe you'll even get your money back or have somebody fired that way.

I'm pretty sure such thread would be full of personal insults at developers AND at Greyhawkian grogrnars who would pop in to say "lol 3ed kids, killing gods like this is silly and no sane Mister Caven would ever allow you that".

Putting me in the same category of number-crunching as those others is very flattering, but untrue. I do some basic math and come to results which any other person who would do it would come to. Rynjin, RD and the others are way, way more into optimizing than I'd ever be, which helps them find those hidden flaws. I just see the obvious stuff and say aloud "Why don't the developers see this, too? Why don't they care?!?"

I like to think that my people skills are somewhat better than with those others, though. I manage a good dialogue with James from time to time, after all. :p

And neither your "seven experienced optimizers" group, nor RavingDorks "why is everybody looking at me like that?" group nor Rynjin's "I have no time to play the game, I'm too busy theorycrafting!" groups are anywhere close to an average gaming group (and hence, the market target group).

I don't see the ACG as being more errate-y than any other Paizo book. The "possible errors" thread for APG has had about the same amount of posts 1 month after the release, and I don't recall anybody here shouting that APG was a failure.

Heck, I believe most Bestiaries have far more errors. But, being GM-side books they never fall under the same OCD scrutiny that player-side books are subjected to. People don't get so passionately ... I mean, nerdragely invested in monsters like they do with classes and other player material.

The fact that this thread is full of people whose forum activity is mostly limited to bashing whatever they see that has Paizo logo on it hardly surprises me as well.

One ACG criticism which I belive warrants some merit is the issue of disjunction between the class chapter (which was, AFAIK, written by Jason/Sean/Stephen) and the archetypes and feats chapters which are, again I'm guessing, outsourced to freelancers mostly. As a result, there's less coherency and consistency than it would be if everything would be written just by 3 guys. Of course the question is, whether such model is necessary to be able to put the book in a reasonable time at all.

Of course we don't need no understanding of the business in order to express our wishes. I'm still waiting for Sexual Assault in Golarion and Transgendered Pornography of the Inner Sea and I seriously have no idea why these books didn't get printed yet, I mean I talked to my gaming group and everybody agrees it's a cool idea. Even my cat agrees.

But I digress.

Kickstarter solves precisely zero problems here. Kickstarter provides money. Paizo doesn't need money to put new books out. It needs manpower.

"Kickstart some money and hire new permanent employees!" Well, that'll put the Kickstarter well above what's needed for this one project. I don't even think that's kosher with Kickstarter rules, asking for money that isn't related to the kickstarted project. Let alone the question of what these new people are supposed to do once the book is out.

"Kickstart some money and hire temp works for this book only!" Well, do you know what are the salaries in RPG gaming industry? I'll give you an expert insider insight: they're not stellar. They're actually piss poor compared to video games and board games industries, and both require similar talents. You're not going to hire anybody temporarily with such salaries, and by anybody I mean somebody that's competent enough. I won't even mention the fact that US jurisdiction has some really weird regulations concerning temp workers. And that we're talking Seattle here, with dozens of companies in need of editors, writers and developers who are into fantasy and scifi.

"Profit margins are not slimmer!" - well duh, logic and common sense, how much can you sell the same product all over again if your name isn't Steve Jobs? Not much. Sure, there's some profit, but not as much as from something else. Business are about earning money, remember? You need to prioritize. And going back to the industry size and wealth question - in such a tiny industry, you can't afford to make mistakes. Especially with WotC now back in the game.

"People won't cancel their APs because older ones get reprinted!" Excuse me, any empirical data here? Any poll? A sample of, say, 1000 targeted interviews? Basic market research apart from the fact that your gaming group said so? We have anything? Bueller? Bueller? A serious company can't do a Kickstarter just to try and see if there's demand. Doing so indicates that they are unable to conduct proper market research. You're either doing a successful KS or not doing it at all, else you're damaging your market credibility. Tiny industry argument rears its ugly head again.

Above all - more than anything else, this reminds me of all those vocal folks requesting a Dragon/Dungeon magazine art book. Such book happened. It was a hardcover at 30 USD at lauch. It was a pretty fantastic book, I have it sitting on my shelf. It is now discounted at 5 USD here. With over a 1000 of them clogging up Paizo shelf space. What people ask for is not always what they are willing to shell out money for.

Really? That seems like a stretch to me.

Maybe the writers want to do something? Maybe not every AP has to have a gimmick or something? What's wrong with an epic adventure stopping an army of monstrous creatures from taking over Avistan?

I love Iron Gods so far, and I don't see why I can't love this too.

Well, that would be only the 53829th campaign about stopping an army of monstrous creatures published so far for D&D. Not counting other fantasy RPG games. I mean, maybe if this campaign was about playing an orc tribe and getting to pillage, burn and rape innocent villagers, I could get interested. Otherwise, not much.

Spellcasters are fine 1-4, but don't dominate as hard.

Once 3rd level spells come into play, however, they start getting more and more powerful, gaining options that martials can't replicate.

Look, I know a game where everybody can teleport 3 squares when they hit the enemy, everybody can heal themselves magically and everybody can use the same rituals like raise dead or some other crazy bat guano stuff. The core books are out of print, but I do have a pristine copy which I never used, could part with for a cheap price. I have a feeling reading these would be more productive for you than obsessively pursuing the goal of somebody officially re-writing the game to your design :)

...maybe...but it seems odd to me that Paizo are releasing a regional CS book that isn't tied in with an AP...I can't think of any other examples...unless of course we are getting two regional CS books associated with Hell's Rebels (the second one being an, as yet unannounced Cheliax book)...

I expect we have a while to wait before we get any confirmation either way on a Cheliax book...

Well, the Absalom book wasn't associated with any AP.

And I think there's no Andoran at all in Hell's Rebels. What I do suspect is that since Paizo did a CS line Osirion book and is pretty much 99% sure to do a Cheliax book, they'll be releasing Andoran, Qadira and Taldor books, too.

Which is great news, because several of those badly need an update and cleaning up.

Your example has nothing to do with ACG. A crit for 4d6+16 is something that a Barbarian and a smiting Paladin geats easily with Fighter and Ranger close behind.

The Arcanist, arguably the strongest ACG class ... died. So. Much. Overpowered! He literally died from being awesome, a tavern story in the making.

Everything in this combat that made it a cakewalk was wacky use of variant rules for called shots. When you introduce variant rules, balance changes. But it's not the ACG that changed anything here.

And as noted before, using called shots multi-head monsters need to be hit in every head in a single turn in order to suffer any conditions.

No, but the idea that the entire tabletop RPG industry can support (and this is being charitable) fewer than 100 full-time workers is sort of jarring.

Paizo has an online store and branches out into dozens of things other than RPG. I'm pretty sure that if they were doing only Pathfinder they wouldn't be able to sustain much apart from a skeleton crew.

Steve Jackson lives off Munchkin. Catalyst lives off Battletech. WotC lives off M:tG. Fantasy Flight lives off board games and living card games.

Many companies, such as Pelgrane Press or Chaosium or Onyx Path are 1d6 permanent employees and the rest is freelancers. And these are relatively big names in the industry with big products, btw.

Yeah, I can totally see there 100 people being employed only out of money that comes from RPGs.
