If you can't handle complex NPCs, maybe it's time to go back to "You meet a CN Human Fighter 3, end of description" of yore. There are plenty of modules and campaigns by publishers who cater to the "everything was simple and better when Gary ran the show" crowd.

Two examples of this are Michael Carpenter and Optimus Prime.

If you guys get sued by Tels over not including energy blades in Technology Guide, let me know. I'm giving an "IP law in gaming industries" lecture next month and I need some zany case from the RPG industry.

Surprise Twist: Mike Mearls dumps WotC just shy of 5E release and joins Paizo. EnWorld explodes.

Silver Crusade

I'm surprised how people are willing to vivisect a company (ve it Paizo, WotC or whatever) when it fumbles a product release date despite logical explanation (boat sinks/customs/freelancer vanished) but are willing to forgive any delays from That Poor Guy Who Ran a Quickstarter.

Business is business. I don't care what happens to your mother/dog or if KS causes a divorce. Deal with it. And yes, I was a backer of Josh Frost and his Quantium fiasco where he used my money to fund 2 years of his living and then vanished.

While I understand the concept of business courtesy and that Lisa is a classy person, I half wish I knew why exactly JF left Paizo - that could have saved me 100$ which I could give to somebody who acts ethically

And even with the names of Demogorgon and Tiamat and Orcus, while you can use them, you are going to disappoint a lot of people coming in from older DnD editions. It'll feel like a bait and switch.

"Oh man Orcus is in Pathfinder? I love Orcus!! Let me by this book all about Orcus!"

few minutes later...

"What the hell? This isn't Orcus!! I got lied to!!"

You're wrong, too. Orcus is a special case.

Orcus was made open content in Tome of Horrors, per WotC's permission. What was made open content was not just his name, but his iconic appearance, The Wand, demon lord of undead, yadda yadda. Sure, not all elements of his backstory made it into open content, but things which I think do constitute the core of "Orcusness" did.

So Pathfinder Orcus is what people expect from Orcus - big fat goat demon lord of liches and skeletons and eeeevuuuul. Hits all the right vibes, right?

Tiamat and Demogorgon are different. The names are open (since they're drawn from mythology and you can't IP them) BUT their appearance, status and general outlook were never made open content. So you can name-drop them, but if anybody would ever want to reimagine them, they'd have to keep 5 miles away from WotC versions.

Also, Necro/FGG is using Orcus under a license (OGL). If you're operating an IP under a valid license you cannot claim ownership, because by agreeing to OGL you reaffirm that the license giver owns the IP.

They may be small, but I wouldn't really consider Necromancer / Frog God Games to be very low profile. Orcus has been a huge part of The Lost Lands for well over a decade. And you can't convince me that WotC has been oblivious to them all that time.

Orcus may technical be WotC property, buy legally, if you don't defend your rights over property like that, you essentially lose them. Any judge in the word would ask WotC why they waited 12 years to object to another company using Orcus extensively, and shut down any attempt to "rreclaim" him.

Orcus featured in several 4E products.

The problem is rather simple. You put out 4 modules per year in order to have the line profitable. Can you afford to put out high-level adventures which don't sell really well at all?

Dear OP,

You walked into a forum populated by vocal minorities of all sorts and you started a thread which was pretty much the equivalent of asking if there's anybody in here that actually considers right to bear arms/homosexuality/religion/white people/Muslims/Nazis "normal".

You might be new to the Internet, but let me tell you that implying in the thread title that any item X is "normal" (and by so inferring that items Y, Z, X-1 or whatever are not "normal") is pretty much throwing a live grenade into a gas tank.

What Paizo did was not ostracize your views, but prevent a major flamefest which would end up in several tempbans, grar and precious time lost on moderation instead of making awesome stuff.

Irrisen is not (just) Russia. It's a porte-moneau of themes from several Slavic and Eastern European cultures.

Lumping Poles (or, matter of fact, anybody in the area apart from Serbs and Bulgarians) with Russians is a terribad idea, and a surefire way to start a pub brawl.

Iron Gods is a smash it.
A few years down the line, Distant Worlds AP is announced.
Mikaze faints, Drejk and I get drunk.
The OP dons his 'dwarvish' utilikilt, grabs his trusty axe and drives toward Seattle to explain some things.
Gets pulled over near Albaquerqe for speedin and yelling 'elven pansies' at officers.

When can we expect Paizo to put a beholder or mindflayer in one of the bestiarys?

Never, it belongs to WoTC, and therefore can never be in anything that isn't WoTC stuff.

However... we do have intellect devourers

Which makes me wonder why the Final Fantasy games were able to get away with using mindflayers in several games. Granted they can NEVER call them illithid. But it appears they are able to get around the legal issues with no problem. I suppose Paizo could do the same if they wished but do not wish to take the risk and also needlessly piss off WOTC/Hasbro.

They didn't "get around the legal issues". They're possibly infringing the copyright. However, between Square being a Japanese company under Japanese jurisdiction, being active in an industry that doesn't put them in competition with WotC and several other factors, WotC didn't sue them (yet).

Paizo has used Eye of the Deep once (in Legacy of Fire), but James Jacobs commented afterwards that it was way too close to sidestepping Beholder IP problem for his liking and that EotD won't be reappearing in Pathfinder products.

I've prolly mentioned this already, but....

In my Skulls'n'Shackles game which I'm running, my fiancée plays a Varisian thief-girl-turned-pirate and is having an on-and-off romance with a NPC female aasimar (shh, nobody knows she's angel-blooded) pirate captain.

Yeah, I'm hitting on my soon-to-be-wife by means of a female NPC in a game about pretend dungeons and imaginary dragons. Yes, there are fade to blacks. Yes, the entire gaming group enjoys it. We get to act out a reflection of our romance in-game, in a fashion. If anybody needs Kleenex for the cerebral haemorrhage Ashiel's and my stories might have inducted here, have one, wipe that blood away and get over yourself.
