But hey, maybe that is also a generation problem. Maybe the babyboomers keep ruling this game just like the rule everything else...I mean, what was good 20-30 years ago and worked back then still has to work today right? And all those youngins...

Every moment you spend bemoaning that "old farts" keep your love of everything Asian down with their traditionalist preferences is a moment where you aren't writing a review of Tian Xia-related products. Which James did indicate, while addressing you directly, as one of the better ways of expressing your opinion in a manner that blimps on Paizo's radar.

Just sayin'.

Would it have been so hard to just give us a Distant Worlds hardcover book about the other planets instead of creating a whole new gaming system/world.

One does not eliminate the other. In fact, expanding the cosmoverse in Starfinder and then revisiting its state in the current Golarion timeline sounds like a plan.

Giantslayer v2, or "since we've announced a sci-fantasy RPG, and we all know how that goes down with the traditionalists, let's make a super safe AP to go with it".

Let's hope at least it will be more fun that GS was.

* Is it time for PDF ONLY SUBSCRIPTIONS Yet?

might help reduce prices and costs, and maybe boost sales in the process.

PDFs subs wouldn't reduce prices and costs much (printing is cheap, what is expensive are things that you need to do anyway - art, art, art, words, layout, more art). And it would piss LGS's off even more so than they already are angry at Paizo for providing any PDFs in the first place. So if you put out a PDF subscription scheme with a discount, whatever you will gain in people subscribing won't offset the angry LGS owners who take your product off the shelf and stop hosting PFS events.

The beginning of the end. Next big bestiary will feature only monsters for this. Bye myth monsters you were great and will be missed.
You should be happy. Monsters sound like they will be compatible between both editions, so there is a much greater likelihood of a bestiary 6 next fall, which would include a lot of starfinder appropriate critters but would probably also include regular monsters.

Way to kick Sincubus in the shins with the news of no Bestiary 6 this year, MMCJawa! You brute! :-P

You know,we have spent decades trying to convince the non roleplaying public that we are not a bunch of devil worshiping psychopaths and this AP manages to reverse all the good work done over these years, and yes I have read the adventures . This is going over the line and it can only harm us in the long run.

Vampire: the Masquerade blew up all the good work in 1991, yet the hobby is still around.

Here's a big "I don't wanna" - I don't want for existence of Starfinder to result in sci-fantasy elements getting removed from vanilla Pathfinder. On some level, this is an opportunity for Paizo to have the cake and eat the cake, with Pathfinder being more "traditionalist fantasy" and Starfinder covering the weird stuff. While I'm very happy that I am getting a full-blown sci-fantasy RPG, I'd love for robotz with lazors to creep into baseline Pathfinder books every now and then.

I'm not entirely sure if expecting a book titled "Horror Adventures" to contain spells that turn you into Tinkerbell isn't a one-way ticket to disappointment.

But, oh Great and Powerful Ashiel, the way these proclamations are worded is a part of BBEG's plan. They are not what the PCs are ultimately rebelling against. You really should give the AP a read before jusging it solelybading on the Player's Guide.

I want you to consider how stupid the premise of rebelling against a thing you don't know about is. Yes, there is nerfarious stuff going on behind the scenes. But like with many APs, it's really behind the scenes. It's nothing that is known. It's not why the rebellion occurs. On the outside, the supposedly super oppressive government is literally not super oppressive and most of the proclamations are actually obviously beneficial and a non-hindrance to the average citizen.

Trying to say "But there's really bad stuff that the PCs aren't aware of, and that's why the PCs should rebel" should in and of itself demonstrate why it's dumb.

The stuff quickly unfolds in the first adventure, becomes glaringly visible to the PCs and is the actual cause for the rebellion. You really should read the things you want to argue about first.

Yeah, Tiamat was basically namdropped so that everybody including her in their home games doesn't have to do headcanon in order to have her in the setting.

Can I request Reiko in a goth loli maid outfit? And no probs with such outfit revealing anything related to the "is Reiko a boy or a girl?" situation, Alto Saotome made a precedent that your gender doesn't matter when it comes to that particular costume.

The only thing you can achieve by pitching something like that here is make sure that Paizo will certainly not create an adventure path in that vein.

To expand upon Zaister's thought - it's because the last Paizo wants to is to wrestle with a lawsuit.

Or rather - the last thing they want to is to have you lose the lawsuit, because of the " Users posting messages to the site automatically grant Paizo Inc the royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, nonexclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, sublicense, copy and distribute such messages throughout the world in any media." boilerplate.

Which means that by posting here, all your ideas are belong to Paizo. So before you post any works of yours that would not fall under the OGL anyway, think twice.

What are those "paper books" you people keep talking about? I thought we hunted down and digitized the last survivors in 2025...

It never ceases to amaze me how strongly people feel about "Good" in D&D. I mean, you can put pretty much anything in a book about demons/devils - from baby-eating skin-wearing chainsaw-wielding splatter to "vaguely CNish bordering on redemption" and everybody is cool, except that one person who was tricked by their (ha!) friends into watching Martyrs and how as a panic trigger button that goes off every time the topic of flaying somebody's skin alive is brought up.

But put out a book about heavens and you suddenly get folks get up their arms about things such as their ideal vision of what celestials should look like, what their mental stats should be, what 'goodness' exactly is, how Arshea shouldn't be Good because she's really CN or how Ragathiel is really LE (yep, I'm a bit guilty of the last one) and what pronouns should be used in the context of ultimate benevolence.

I mean, folks, take a walk, go to a church, talk to Father Spirit, experience some divine transcendence on the top of the impossible mountain and realise that this is just a game of pretend-elves.

Here's something worth asking: How do most players see "horror" these days? Should the book focus on "horrifying/terrifying" elements or "disturbing/depraved" elements?

Should GMs try to scare players... or should they make them feel uneasy?

I'm asking this because the horror genre kinda got diluded over the years. Back then, it was all about scaring people with frightening imagery, but these days, it's... almost attending a biology class, as the "horror" factor is more gory than scary.

Both elements should be present, as "horror" is everything from ghost stories to splatter-gore.

And I disagree that horror is all about gore these days. Many recent outstanding additions to the genre across all media, from The Babadok and The Conjuring to SOMA, Alien:Isolation and Five Nights at Freddy's all short on splatter and high on dread and scare by ambience

I'd take a Household Shepherd druid with focus on cats, hamsters and dogs any day. Imagine fighting the bad guys in the city streets when the Household Shepherd calls every cat, dog, parrot, badger and pet snake from the neighbourhood to his or her aid.
