And we're really happy at how quickly and well you've all helped us out with this project! It drives me to make sure we produce the best show we can.
I also forgot to mention that some (not a lot, though) of the cost will go towards rebuilding the site, as well. It really needs it, and getting some art, templates, extensions, stock images, etc... will cost us a bit.

More and better grade equipment. The first goal was really the bare minimum 'This is what we need to keep going.' It covers things like replacement mixers, new microphones, updating the recording computer to bring it out of the stone age. (It was running windows XP... which is what it came with!) Professional editing software as well.
We've been paying for the podcast mostly out of our own pockets and coming up with creative solutions to tech issues, but our last GenCon showed us that our equipment really didn't stand up to what was needed.
We're hoping as the funds continue to gather that we'll be able to get a pair of good HD video cameras for Con coverage, and better remote recording equipment for similar purpose, and if things go even better our whole team of volunteers can be equipped as well!
And of course some of the money raised after the first stretch goal will go towards the cost of producing and improving the adventure reward, art, etc...
Love it! Thanks for selecting the little devil to be the monster. Her obsessive collecting is likely to only get worse.
Our first video of the Gen Con seminars is now available!

I'm curious as to what has changed recently that allows you to do it now rather than earlier?
Looking forward to the book.
A Golarion / Real world crossover calendar would be AWESOME... so I hope that guess is it. Cheesecake / Beefcake not required, but not refused. :)
Also, are you using this version?
The original version should also work, but it doesn't play well with all browsers.

I see these posts are a little old, but is there anything like "Perram's Spellbook" out there that still works? It doesn't seem to want to actually LOAD/GENERATE the PDF. It just stalls at 3/4 completion. Also, the "Spellgen" just generates a perpetually blank web page for me.
Hey there! Would you mind letting me know what errors you're getting? I just checked the site and it was working fine for me.
What options are you choosing / browser you are using?
Maybe Something Like 'Ultimate Adventure' sort of a cross between a Rogue book, designing adventures and dungeons, And tools and tips for exploring same? Can have the swashbuckler as a core.
previously--the novel boons could be applied to each of your characters. it sounds like now it can only be applied to one character--just making sure I'm understanding correctly, since I usually do buy those?
As I understand it, yes, but you wont need to apply it until you need it, from my understanding of the discussion. And it doesn't matter if you apply them to four different characters when it comes to qualifying for the Bonus.

We'll be making formal announcements in blog posts over the coming months for every topic on Mike's bulleted list, and it's likely folks who do listed to the podcast will post about them on the message boards before we make those blog posts. But since the show is recorded live, by viewing it and joining in the conversation, you may have the ability (at the podcast's discretion) to direct questions to those of us in campaign HQ as part of the interview.
We LOVE live questions!
Our show will air live on our YouTube channel:
We use the comments as our live chat. We will get the audio in our feed soon after, but the video will be available to watch after the live show almost immediately.
I would promise to post the details, but I'm sure one of you will beat me to it!
And if it helps, I will be just as surprised as you guys!
Detect Magic is my bane... That card always gives me problems! Its just SO LONG! And you need the majority of the info. It only got worse since it now doubles as magic item identification.
I think this is a great project, and I'll be taking some lessons from it!
Perfect for new players. May I suggest that you make a 'Beginner's Box' package? And perhaps a grouping for each of the PFS Pre-Gens? These are the common scenarios where a new player will be introduced to Pathfinder.
The area diagrams are great. I would recomend puting the book and page # of the spell somewhere. Maybe small print in lower right.
The problem with putting page numbers for spells on the cards is it is disallowed by the Pathfinder License. Because that page number may change from print run to print run.
Ran into this problem with my own cards.
Putting a blank space there for the players to write it down would be super cool.
Paizo's editor-in-chief F. Wesley Schneider joins Ryan and Perram to banter on homosexuality in Golarion and gaming, easily the most insightful discussionthe banter segment has yet to see. We talk about RPG Superstar and Paizo's latest hirings in the news segment, we review Animal Archive, Liar's Blade, Open Gaming Monthly, and Evocative Vehicles in Read Magic, and we take your questions in the Know Questions segment, including a couple of questions for Venture Lieutenant Brian Darnell.
Also just to mention that Cayden's HOLY SYMBOL is a mug of beer...
Also, where is this fan art? :)

We loved doing this interview and going over this topic. The newest comic just gave us an excuse to dive into it.
The first print run CRB's were actually notorious for having weaker bindings. I believe that new print runs had stronger bindings than before. This isn't the first time this concern has seen the forums.
The CRB is one of the few RPG books printed so thick, and certainly the thickest book to see such widespread use. I'm not blaming Paizo for not being able to predict what would happen, but I don't think it dismiss-able either.
Honestly, I'd love to see the CRB split into two books, a Player's Guide and a GM's Reference. At $29.99 and $19.99 respectively (The GM sections are small compared to the player section in the CRB, not all of the DMG made the port over), or even a bit more each, inflation and binding costs etc...

To be honest right now it is just pulling the default text from the d20pfsrd's spell database by Mike Chopswill. But my data is a bit out of date.
The main issue here is that those spells, in the very official text of the game, only refer to other spells... So my options available for elegant solutions are limited.
Something to try for, though.
