I have a whole bag of gruesomely descriptive idioms at my disposal. :D
If you're not trying to be compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, you do not need to use the Pathfinder Compatibility License. You'll want to use the Open Gaming License and System Reference Document instead, which is here.
Jon, other folks have covered things fairly well, but I do have some additional links in my profile regarding third-party publishing. It's been stated previously, but bears repeating again: both the Open Gaming License and the Pathfinder Compatibility License are legal documents. If you don't understand them, do not publish anything until you do.
As one of the judges for that round...
...Artistic talent is *not* required. What is needed is a clear, easy to read map that the cartographer can turn into the lush maps you see in our adventures. Locations with elements that would lead to an interesting fight (elevation, terrain, cover), are what you need to design for your adventure, and you need to be able to clearly communicate that in a glance. Don't forget to think like a GM *and* a player—what would you want to see in a map at the table?
There should be a general rule against complaining about the presence of threads which you are not interested in but other people are.
Pretty sure it's covered under Rule Zero.
A reminder, this is a tricksy topic. These are the kinds of questions that roleplaying can explore, should you and your players want to. Some do—others don't. Telling somebody they're playing the game wrong isn't cool—it's their game, not yours. Be civil to each other, and learn to step away from the keyboard if you feel yourself getting too heated.
Oly, I'd recommend watching the "We Shall Remain" and "Ken Burns' The West" documentaries if you want to learn more about some of the past (and current) U.S. policy towards Native Americans.
Removed several posts and their replies. Please don't trivialize rape by using it as an off-handed and hyperbolic example of old school gaming.
Doomkitten, if there's anything that my trans friends have taught me is that no matter who you are, the closer we can get to our idealized self, the happier each of us will be. You get to define you—nobody else does. I'm so happy for you, and I am happy imagining the smile on your face—one that will only get wider as you begin your transition. ^_^

Nope. John le Carré's characters didn't appear to be the singing and dancing type. :P
