They announced the next hardcover book. Occult Adventures, with covering of "Psychic Magic"...instead of simply collaborating with Dreamscarred Press. I don't quite get it, why would I want Psychic Magic, isn't that simply done with the Cerebremancer prestige class? That's another topic.

It is indeed another topic. But they are two interpretations for a similar topic, and they can both exist in the game system. :)

I'll give James (and others) a bonus to their Knowledge (convention logistics) check here.


  • Adding a fourth register definitely helped, but it wasn't just a simple plug-in and go, as it required additional internet access fees through convention services. Even with a fourth cashier, we still couldn't process people fast enough (we were throttling our connection quite often), and then there was the issue of rearranging the schedule to accommodate having a fourth cashier.
  • As has been explained previously, we had to do something about our lines, both regarding safety as well as being a good neighbor in the vendor hall.
  • Sales can only be done in the dealer hall. Even if there were some magical means to have a new register location blessed by convention staff and set up appropriately, there's the issue of stocking said station.
  • While walking the lines last year and having people pay cash certainly moved lines faster, it's an absolute nightmare regarding inventory levels and reconciliation—we had no way of knowing what we had left, or who was a subscriber, or how many to hold back for subscriber pickup, or anything. No no no no. It makes Baby Aroden cry.
  • One of the things that helped at PaizoCon was scanning your badge and pulling up your Paizo.com account right there. I'd like to have something like that for next year, as it would make it that much faster to handle customers in line, but it would require some sort of additional download (like the PFS card downloads) in order to do so.
  • I absolutely want to make it easier for our hard-working volunteers to use their well-earned store credit at the store.

We've had many, many ideas on how to wrassle our lines for next year, and I'm sure that we'll come up with something that will be fair and amicable for everybody. :)

So in interest of taking this conversation in a new direction; what would a more balanced spread look like?
A mandate that every AP include something equivalent to "every pregen iconic in the group topless inside a bathhouse". We simply do not have enough illustrations involving downtime shenanigans.

Joking aside, I would really like to see a little more downtime illustrations.

One thing I really liked about the pathfinder comics is all the downtime dynamics.

Valeros hitting on Merisiel who gives him a little bit of hope.
Merisiel and Ameiko doing arm wrestling in the tavern.
Valeros disturbing Kyra's Preyers with his hangover.
Kyra and Merisol getting intimate...

I believe that is what makes a party. not slaying the dragon together. But rather the interpersonal dynamics.
At least that's what I like when I play.

I love this too. Maybe not always naked in the bathhouse ;-) but more downtime would be great.

And downtime would afford opportunities to show the characters in other than their regular outfits, allowing people to see more skin on some of the iconics, and less skin on others, or whatever.

** spoiler omitted **

I have an idea for a drinking contest illustration between Valeros, Amiri, Crowe, and Alain. :)

Favor to ask of you. Before you go home next Wednesday evening (13 Aug), could you preset this PDF to go on sale as soon as it rolls midnight PDT?

My wife will kill me, or at least make me sleep on the couch, but I'll get up at 03:01 EDT and purchase and download if it is available then!

Selytiel = pure sex poured into black leather!

Where he's going in my sketchbook, he doesn't need leather.

Also, I feel compelled to point out that when art is depicted in either extreme all the time is the problem. There's a time and place for pinups, and a time and place for being an armored juggernaut, and a wide variety between both points is most desirable and as the situation of the art warrants. :)

Oracles fill the "cleric without a god" concept, but if you're using just the Core Rulebook, then yes, you can have a cleric that doesn't worship a deity. (It's specifically called out in their class.)

Since I'm the arbiter of what ends on the front page of the website...

I want to promote all of Paizo's products, and get people excited about the latest releases and licensed products—that is the heart of my job here, and that's the biggest priority.

I want to get people excited about third-party products for Pathfinder, as that helps promote our Pathfinder RPG line, and helps create a sense of community among the publishers and our mutual customers. I want people to know that if we don't publish something that they want for their game, there is an excellent chance that somebody else does, and I want them to know about it.

But gaming is so much more than our own products. Once you start gaming, you're much more amenable to play other kinds of games, whether it's a different roleplaying game, a board game, card game, or whatever. I want to let people know about these games too, as a healthy gaming industry helps everybody, and that's why I will be talking about the latest edition of Dungeons & Dragons. I absolutely loathe the "my game is better than your game" mentality, and I will continue to heartily reject it, and occasionally showcase non-d20-based roleplaying games as the schedule (and potential for sales) permits. (There are certain products that don't sell well on our site—wargames, for example—so I do not focus on them as much as roleplaying games.)

Expanding on what Mark said, not only does Paizo's RPG store business want to remain friendly to third parties, and there is probably some minor amount of not wanting to tread close to antimonopoly laws...

I do want to be friendly to third parties, but anti-monopoly laws are not even on my radar as for why. :)

Galnörag wrote:
There is another side of the coin for the RPG Store business, that is, they don't want clients who currently shop here for other third party sites to necessarily go to one of the competitor sites to purchase this game...

We've said it before, but we don't care *where* you get our games. Buy it where it makes the most sense for you and your gaming budget.

Galnörag wrote:
... and then possibly lose future revenue to that site for other third party content (and possibly first, I'm not sure if Drive Thru RPG carries Paizo PDF products?)

Paizo PDFs are only sold on our site, but there is a huge variety of PDFs (and print-on-demand!) through Drive Thru, so it balances out in an overall sense.

Galnörag wrote:
Essentially by ensuring their clients can get all of their products here they prevent their clients becoming promiscuous with the other RPG shops and preserve revenue future revenue streams. They don't want you to go to the effort of creating an account on their competitors sites because it informs their competitors you exist, and helps them market to you, and removes your barrier to entry for future purchases.

Again, I do not care if people shop elsewhere—of course I want people to shop at Paizo.com, and I do my best to make it easier for people to do so, but again, people will shop where it makes the most sense for them. It's hardly an "us vs. them" mentality that drives my decisions for Paizo.com, it's a "how can I focus this so that this is appealing to our customers so that they will make their purchase on our site." Even if you don't make your final purchase on our site, you will know about the product, and again, a healthy game industry is good for everybody.

I guess what I'm trying to wrap my mind around, Crystal, is why Shardra would NOT devote the resources required to get her hands on a belt, elixir, etc. that would make her body completely female.

I'm not TG, and I only (barely) know ONE TG person that I am aware of. I understand that some FtM TG people (like the one I know) hesitate on bottom surgery for a variety of reasons, but from what I have learned they don't hesitate because they wouldn't like to go "all the way" so much as because the current level of medicine can't offer what they really want, and/or is too risky.

My understanding is that MtF TG people have less issues with the surgery, for reasons that I probably don't have to explain.

Anyway -- is it true that some TG people would genuinely WANT to retain their birth genitalia, if a reliable and attainable option existed that would give them a fully functioning swap?

I honestly don't know. Do you?

I am not Crystal, but...maybe because no matter what sex you are, we all have features about ourselves that we would like to change, and some that we would like to keep. Maybe Shardra is perfectly happy with herself as she is. Maybe she's not. Maybe she doesn't want a cursed item. There isn't a blanket situation or statement to cover all possible variations of transfolk and how they feel about their bodies—it's a very individual journey, and I have yet to meet two that have the exact same mindset.

Gender is not a black and white, 0 to 100, either/or situation. But the closer we can get to our idealized self, the better off we are—and I think Shardra has found it. (May we all be so lucky.)
