Last time Paizo dabbled in software development, we got the Game Space, which is in development limbo.

Mobile apps are even worse, because you need to handle at least two ecosystems (Droid and IOS).

You're right, we can communicate this better. I'm actively trying to see what my team can do on this front while everyone is at the show. This doesn't change previous issues, but rest assured it's not being ignored.

I want to be clear that no matter HOW upsetting the constant nerf-storm has been since crane-wing maybe, I really do appreciate people like you and Mark coming on and interacting with us. I just wish that the people that make the final decisions on these things would pop in once in a while.

And as others have said, I'd love to see some kind of poll put out for some of the more controversial changes. It would give a tangible view of how many people are for/against it before something radical gets done.

Given that the forum goers are a tiny, and hardly representative, fraction of the playerbase, that wouldn't be in the slightest indicative of anything.

Anything that nerfs casters is good

I'm sorry - but you obviously haven't played a lot of systems. Many make even high level Pathfinder (which I generally avoid due to balance reasons among other things) look as balanced as Chess.

Heh, that reminds of RIFTs Glitter Boys. Or on the other side of the sepctrum, 1ed WFRP spellcasters.

I have been skeptical about Pathfinder for a long time, and I am sure I've made that clear before. The recent direction only makes me wanna go back to 3.5e that much harder.

Yeah, a party of a Healer, Warmage, Truenamer and 3.5 Swashbuckler is all the rage that Pathfinder lacks.

Especially when they face a bunch of un-errated Nimblewrights.

I wouldn't discount magnuskn's experiences, mythic rules do kind of bubble up if used by a group of optimizers. A casual group might get a kick out of it, but more crunch-oriented players will quickly exploit the system.

Yes magunskn, that was me agreeing with you. You can stop cleaning your monitor right now.

However, mythic works perfectly as means of powering up monsters to present surprising challenges to non-mythic groups.

On the topic, Skulls'n'Shackles has the whole ship development and naval combat thing, but I ditched it quickly and run the AP without them. Nobody complains.

Lupinal and Marrash are both closed content if I recall correctly, so no go with including them in Pathfinder bestiaries.

It is 3:49 AM here, but the flight to Gencon beckons me...before I go, though, I'll say this: I'm super psyched that you guys are loving what you see! Since negative feedback is more likely to motivate people to say something than positive, it always makes my day to see it when people who are liking something I worked on come in here to post about it!

I believe this is in no small part due to the fact that it's much harder to lash out at things that have the stewardship of super cool people who actively engage in discussion. I mean, compare OA threads or threads championed by Golarion lore folks to ACG threads. Punching an anonymous "Mr. Failzo Designer" in the face over the Internet is easier than telling the Nice Guy/Gal Mark/James/Crystal/Erik that their work is utter failure of humanity.

Engaging the community, as utterly frustrating it can sometimes be, does make wonders. I can see several people who were extremely caustic in rules-related threads change considerably once Mark decided to forgo his nights and holidays in order to double as the spokesperson of the rules team.

Call me crazy, but I think it's possible for rational people to discuss religion and politics and keep it civil.

Up to a point.

And then we duel.

Parallel design is nothing new. And I don't think it's a problem - if three companies decided to put out reinterpretation of 3.5 psionics, I wouldn't begrudge them for stepping one each other's toes, but be happy that there's more to choose from. Also I wouldn't expect them to hold their creativity back and wait until Paizo makes up their mind on that particular slice of design.

I'd like to state on the record that the way Mark interacts with the community is absolutely awesome. It goes for other Paizo staff too, but insofar I've had the idea that the lore arm of Paizo was much more on the ball in this department.

Yes. Poor DMs players take more than an hour to choose their race in the future...

I think it's about time you accept the fact that people have differing tastes, and your target group of "people who want to stare at colour art of their favourite mythological creature" is quite likely somewhat smaller than the groups of "people who want interesting monsters to challenge their players with" and "folks who are looking for cool playable races, cohorts, summons and planar binds".

Couldn't agree more. If Paizo is going to try to wipe away anything that someone might find offensive, they might as well shut down now. It doesn't matter how blandly inoffensive you try to make something...there WILL be SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE who takes offense to it.

If you make it TOO blandly inoffensive, that someone will be me.

It's not like TSR and WotC didn't produce mostly blandly inoffensive sanitized content for the entirety of their publishing history without a) shutting down b) getting you to take offense to it :)

What confuses me is that people seem against the idea in general that a trans* individual, or gay, or whatever is represented in the material at all, as if it will rub off on you through the paper or somehow influence your game or thoughts.

If you don't like or want something, change it. It takes literally seconds and you move on. I've had all female groups in the past that were interested in relationships with NPCs and have happily swapped genders where appropriate to the characters and players alike.

As said above by Rednal, I'm quite happy that Paizo tries to include representatives of many individuals in their material. It helps inclusiveness, it might open some eyes, and it helps set up their world as a living thing and not a reproduction of what might be seen in many traditional fantasy books/movies/shows.

Well, our hobby is about escapism, and for some it's escaping from the world which rapidly changes in a way they're not exactly happy with. Some believe that the good old D&D where men are manly men, women have -2 STR -2 CON +2 CHA and all those icky Social Progress things are left out is where they can find solace.

It was stated on numerous occasions that Golarion is far more of an equal-opportunity-for-adventure place with female adventurers being something of a common sight. What we do perceive is a distortion caused by the fact that majority of p'n'p RPGers are male and tend towards playing male characters. All the more reason to promote a more balanced gender ratio in our hobby!

But there is hope. My Skulls'n'Shackles game is 3 ladies and 2 gentlemen, and my Reign of Winter game is 3 guys and 2 gals. And I'm running an all-female group SOON. Hopefully, a generation later or so, an average gaming table will be much more diverse than it is now.

The art is ordered well before the rules are finalised, and if Wayne Reynolds draws your iconic with something that ultimately isn't 100% rules as written, you just roll with it. Why? Because he's gorramn Wayne Reynolds, that's why. ;)

My experience of over 16 years of studying and applying law in practice has led me to the conclusion that in an environment with dragons and undead, law is something that should be glossed over unless you want to have a big headache OR the entire table has minimum of a BA in law and is ready to discuss the finer points of what happens to the inheritance when somebody gets reincarnated.

I personally prefer the one city = 64 pages approach. The 'boxed set, four books of total 300 pages, six foldout maps, every house detailed down to how many giants rats are in the basement' way leaves way to little wiggle room for the DM and tends to cost a million in terms of overseas shipping.

I find Magnimar and Kaer Maga books perfectly fine in terms of scope. Cities of Golarion is too brief for my tastes, while Ptolus/City of Brass is just way too overwhelming.

Well, the author of the GtDV was pretty big on dragons hanging around everywhere and being something more of a regular occurrence ... while ultimately James and Co decided that dragons in the Inner Sea are much more reclusive and don't mingle with humanoids. As a result, several dragon-related elements of the setting (such as parts of Dragons Revisited and Guardians of Dragonfall) have faded into the Never Mentioned Again Zone, where the keep company of Darklight Sisterhood and Paladins of Asmodeus.

There's already a Golarion Slenderman, it's called Thin Man and dwells in the Inner Sea Bestiary. Reprinting him in world-neutral book could be a good idea, but then again I prefer my bestiaries full of original work not seen before...
