Jan 23, 2015? Six months from now, minus two days seems rather specific. Any reason for this, as in, did I miss some sort of announcement?

It's a display error that's affecting some products on our website. It is not currently available at all.

Not at this time, no.

Product releases on the website are tied to our solicitation cycle, and we haven't done February 2015's releases...yet. :D

They were not listed so I'll ask ....

Will you have your typical selection of Flip-Maps, Map Packs, Modules, Books and Pathfinder Battles Miniatures at your GenCon booth this year?

I'm not a subscription holder and was planning on picking up some Flip-Maps and Map Packs for the PFS scenarios I'm running at Gen Con.

Yes. I have coordinated with John Compton to make sure that Flip-Mats and Map Packs being used in this year's scenarios will be available at the booth.

Yes, but it won't be released until the end of August for non-subscribers.
Is this still the case? The date says Aug 14.

August 14th is correct—GenCon monkeys with our normal release schedule something fierce. :D

So, as I understand it, this makes it difficult to tell readers where to find material that's referenced if you don't want to go ahead and reprint it in the book. Is that the intention?

I don't know if that was the intention, but that's how it's worked out in practice if you didn't want to waste word count on copy/pasting mechanics.

SteelDraco wrote:
Is it best practice to reprint things that you reference just so it's easy for the reader?

I have followed the practice of "reprinting all mechanics" when I have done my freelancing in the past (which has led me to avoid some mechanical choices to avoid eating too much of my word count). "Best" or not is relative, but I know as a GM, I like having them reprinted and handy.

SteelDraco wrote:
Or just leave the reader to figure out where a referenced item is from, either by searching online or going line-by-line through the OGL at the end of the book?

Most readers don't go through the OGL, so it's not an ideal solution for that particular reason. If you're creating a PDF, you *can* hyperlink to the relevant product (or to a rules reference website).

Paizo Employee Webstore Gninja Minion

We don't carry stock of non-Paizo products (for the most part), so we have to order from our distributor, wait for it to come in, then ship it out to you. In addition, this is the busiest time of the year for us, and we try our best to indicate estimated shipping times in product descriptions to give you the necessary information that you need when placing your order.

1) Someone has an archetype gain proficiency with two weapons that are both found in books not mentioned in Exhibit B. Can we reference those items, as in use their name and mention where to find them? Or would we need to cut that?

Depends on what the name of the weapon is, but you couldn't reference the product it's from in your text. (You could reprint the relevant rules, though.)

CalebTGordan wrote:
2) I did want to expand and do something with regents, a whole set of alternative rules in the Player Companion: Alchemy Manual. Is that something that we could legally do? If so, what would we need to make sure we did?

Yes, you just can't reference that reagents come from the Alchemy Manual in your product text—but you would have to reference it in your Section 15 statement.

CalebTGordan wrote:
3) I would like to mention or even reprint a feat is in The Dungeoneer's Handbook, the Torchbearer feat. If not reprint than I would at least like to add to the number of torchbearer archetypes available to use. Can I do that?

Yes, you could reprint it, as long as it does not contain Product Identity. Again, update Section 15!

CalebTGordan wrote:
4) I am working on a line of PDFs that present magic shops. Some of the ideas are adapted from the Magical Market's line, (patronage and barter, for example,) but have been altered, expanded, or rewritten. I am not copying anything directly or making any direct references, but it is similar in some respects to the Player Companion book. Do I need to worry?

Section 15 again is your friend.

*arrives in a cloud of brimstone, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon-scented smoke*
Alrighty. Let's clear up a few things.


  • You can use material designated as Open Game Content from our products—this includes many many different titles well beyond what's listed in Exhibit B of the Pathfinder Compatibility License.
  • You cannot use proper names in your material, but you can use the mechanics. For example, you can use the Red Mantis Assassin prestige class—you just cannot call it that. It would have to be Red Lotus Assassin or something like that.
  • Exhibit B is a list of products that you can freely reference by name in your product—but please use the FULL name of the product as it's listed there. It's "Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Ultimate Combat" not "Ultimate Combat" or "Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Combat." Full name, no exceptions (and no page number references, either). Note that the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Beginner Box and Strategy Guide are not on this list—this is deliberate.

And time for some examples!

  • "Man, the river druid archetype is really awesome. That would work perfectly for that undine I had in mind for that encounter." My statblock line would read "Male undine druid (river druid) 10." I cannot reference this product by name in any of the product's text or ad copy. I am required to take the Section 15 statement of Pathfinder Player Companion: People of the River and add it to the Section 15 OGL statement for Liz's Awesome River Adventures, as per the requirements of the Open Gaming License.
  • "Oh man, Festering Ulunat is an awesome name, I wanna add it to my adventure!" Nnnnnope. Proper names are considered Product Identity, and you can't use the name. Mechanics are a different story, and mechanics are frequently declared as Open Game Content. So yes, you can use the statblock, you'll just come up with a new name...although this is kind of a "meh" solution, IMO, and not the best foot forward for a writer to take, especially when you can't explicitly state the source of the mechanics in the text.
  • "Wait, so how can I reference the fact that I got stuff from books not included in Exhibit B?" Well...this is where you're going to have to get creative in your abbreviations, or sacrifice some word count to reprinting mechanics, or hyperlinking to a rules reference site, or... You'll have to figure out a system that works for you.

And as an addendum, I Am Not A Lawyer. I just happen to see a lot of third-party products cross my inbox and by necessity have to look at the Pathfinder Compatibility License frequently. :D

This book could have twice the number of pages and it would be still too few. I am totally in favor of future material like this one.
I find it weird they do a small amount of pages or a huge hardcover. Why doesn't Paizo ever do something more in the middle now and then? Like with something like this, for example?

Because it's really really expensive to print hardcover (as opposed to softcover). Most books are assembled in multiples of 16. Our Free RPG Day modules are 16 pages, Companions 32, Campaign Setting 64, Adventure Paths (and new Modules) 96 pages. In order to make hardcovers more cost effective, a book would need to meet a minimum number of pages (my personal guess is 128 pages).

Are there official rules for using it that explain the 1 deck/person idea? I play 3.5 and use the "Dork20" deck (its a similar idea - its pretty silly and sometimes a little overpowered but my group likes it) and we use only one deck for the whole group.

What about this deck makes it 1/person rather than 1/group? Are there not enough cards to go around?

Each player gets "at least 12 cards," so you should have enough to go around for a standard four player group. However, this limits the variety of options at your disposal (as some mechanics allow for more draws), so each player with their own deck is ideal—but not required.

I really want to like this book, but I've been reading the blog previews and I wonder if a lot of the classes were written with a different play style in mind than my own. Or maybe that's how the previews are written/geared toward. I didn't get that feeling from APG, UM or UC or their previews. But something in these previews makes it feel different to me and that is making it harder for me to really like or get into this book right now.

Previews only show a small portion of the book—if you're hesitant, wait until you have a chance to see the book in its entirety through your FLGS and then make a decision. :D

In the past some companies had limited permission to use some closed content. I believe the psionic monster book that Green Ronin put out has some closed content in it but it was spelled out that those pieces were not OGC. Likewise, Goodman Games has a limited license for Beholders and there were a few others but those were not transferable I believe.

I can't remember what Bastards and Bloodlines had in it and my game collection is currently packed for renovations.

I think Bastards & Bloodlines was from the early 3.0 era which did not exclude certain monsters from the SRD (which is how Green Ronin published their illithid book).

The book does indeed have half-variants of certain creatures, but when I verified the OGL it does state that it is indeed open.

Should WotC tell us that this wasn't their intention and ask us to remove it, we'll naturally redo those particular half-templates immediately.

You might want to clarify this for certain, and double check which Open Game Content statement that you're looking at gives you permission to base your work on their IP.
