I have the feeling that 9, 10, 11, and all future Doctors will retain their respective numbers (Capaldi being 12, the next guy being 13, etc). When Hurt's incarnation is spoken of, he will be "the War Doctor".
As for the Valeyard....eh, who knows? The exact origins of the Valeyard were never really pinned down. Maybe after Handy throttles Rose to death, he will escape back into the main universe and assume the identity of the Valeyard.

I'm still not convinced that GURPS is an actual thing. I've never met anyone in real life who actually plays it, and nobody that I've met knows anyone who plays it either. And looking at available books for the system does nothing to make me want to play it...it seems like sourcebook overload...like every time you wanted to play a character that was even somewhat different than your last one, you would need to buy another sourcebook or three.
That being said, I'm sure that the nebulous GURPS defenders will now appear.
Just ask yourself...have you ever met any of the GUPRS defenders in real life? Or do you know anyone who has? :P
Anything that makes the game less fun for the players is bad form.
Having a monster or NPC succeed in attacking you isn't fun. As such, I suggest to the developers that all future products remove the ability for any non-PCs to attack. Furthermore, I hope they issue a recall of all prior products and subsequently remove the attacks from them as well. This is the only way to avoid the subsequent loss of fun that results from a successful enemy attack.
Playtesting without criticism is not playtesting, it's mere fanwank.
That said, "do better" or "don't do this book" isn't criticism. Even if you don't have any positives, at least point out what you most strongly feel are the negatives.
Or, alternatively, don't plug up the playtest boards. Hell, personally I think the game would be better off if the only future additions to the RPG line were more Bestiaries. To me, practically everything else beyond the APG has been unneeded. But I don't clog up every playtest board by screaming BLOAT BLOAT BLOAT BLOATED BLOAT.
Even if it's tempting sometimes.
Least popular request on the boards.
Agreed 100%. I've never actually gamed with anyone who didn't do this to some extent, and I think the GM or player who insisted on everyone always speaking in-character at all times would be far more infuriating and Asperger's-esque.
Never before has this message board needed an "unfavorite" button as much as now. Jennifer Garner was, throughout the majority of Alias, the definition of awesome.
And while her roles these days may not be as awesome, she herself seems to be one of the most down-to-earth and genuinely happy people in Hollywood.
The Frog God guys put out an amazing product, and in my experience their customer service is excellent. I'm frequently astonished at how awesome they can be, even putting aside the fact that it's a mere handful of guys that are doing all of this in their spare time.

1. Approximately equivalent to the other party members.2. Who cares? If the group enjoys a cakewalk, give it to them. If the enjoy a Dark Souls -esque grind-fest, give that to them. If they like somewhere in the middle, give that to them. None of which requires the use of WBL, just a decent GM.
People who follow WBL are being arbitrary.
It's hard for me to imagine anything being more arbitrary...except possible the fact that everything that a party meets being within the level-appropriate range. That's about equal in the arbitrariness factor.
WBL is a terrible metric because it doesn't track how effective that wealth has been spent. Someone with 50,000gp sunk into the 'big six' is more combat effective than someone who has sunk it into other, more interesting things.
Which is sad, because "the big six" (which usually differ depending on who you talk to) tend to be the most boring items in the entire catalog of magical items.
Say what you will about Emma, but at least she's been fairly consistently alive over the past two decades. I'm not sure if the writers at Marvel even keep track of if Jean is supposed to be alive or dead anymore...I think they just write stories that assume whichever is more convenient.
Yup. Aside from Nyarlathotep, they don't really seem to have much inherent malice...the death, destruction, and insanity they cause is simply a byproduct of their existence.
And dude, if you slept for a few aeons and when you woke up, some tasty little morsels were jumping up and down on your front door, you'd probably scarf down a few as well.
Yes. But I have lived in a variety of places. Arkansas, California, New Mexico, North Dakota, England, and Pennsylvania. With extended stays in Texas, Iraq (where admittedly I didn't go outside the wire), Kuwait, and France. Know what I have found? The people of any one area of the world are not really any better of any worse than those from another area. Morally, intellectually, or in any other measurable way. When some fool from the North assumes I must be an inbred, uneducated bit of trailer trash because I'm from the South, all he does is expose his own bigotry, ignorance, and extremely ill-deserved superiority complex.
The problem with coming up with a Golarion specific way to measure time is that every time you use it, everyone else will have to look at the "Golarion to Real Life" cheat sheet. It's just easier and less immersion-breaking to use the methods of timekeeping that we use in real life within the game as well.
Well there is a high possibility only 3 great old ones make it in every bestiary, so which ones do you like to see best?
One thing I like about how Paizo has handled the Mythos thus far is that, other than their own creations, they've kept it pretty close to only Lovecraft himself's writing. If they stat up any more GOOs, I'd like to see the ones that Lovecraft himself wrote about first, whether in his own stories or in his "revisions".
And for a slightly less malign entity:
There have only been a few adventures that FGG have put out that haven't been available for both systems. Most notably Slumbering Tsar is only available for Pathfinder. S&W exclusives are Grimmsgate, Hall of Bones, and MCMLXXV, none of which exceed 25 pages. So I think it's fair to say that FGG is providing pretty great support for BOTH systems.
I'm not really sure what your point is. Are you expecting 3PP to fill the gaps in the system on the date of release or something?
Unless it's just part of this forum's usual mindless "OGL IS THE BESTEST EVER!!!!" leanings. I swear, sometimes I think people on this forum would buy dog crap if you stapled an OGL statement onto it.
The actual work is pretty damn easy. Do it yourself, if you want to. WotC doesn't really care if you use Demogorgon in your home game of Pathfinder.
If Paizo themselves were to put him in a published book? I would imagine they would care....their biggest rival in the industry would have just opened themselves up to being crippled financially. And Paizo's not stupid enough to do that.
You need to just accept that Paizo isn't going to convert some of these things.
By the way...the formians? They ARE in the SRD. So there goes that argument.
Thing is, the folks at Paizo LIKE the two-mandril headed, tentacled, snake-necked, reptilian version of Demogorgon. They don't WANT to replace it with something else. And that's fine. If you want to use him in your version of Golarion, that's fine too.
and had secondary characters like Sif and the Warriors Three look like ineffective buffoons.
The Warriors Three, perhaps, but Sif came off as pretty g++%+%n badass. She's the only non-Thor character to give the Destroyer even the slightest bit of a pause.
