If you are a subscriber who has opted-in for Gen Con subscription pick up, when you arrive at the register and we look up your account, we get a little pop up that lets us know the subscription items you need. If you've brought the items up we just verify you have everything and process the pick up. If you are missing something or need us to grab all the items then we do that. (We prefer whichever way is easiest for the individual subscriber). If you've got a lot of add on purchases, feel free to skip grabbing all your subscription items so you aren't juggling as much and if you want to pick up your items (some or all) from the sales floor, then you are welcome to do that too.
robot chris: so heads up
katina: cayenne cailean sounds like a spicy drink
sara marie: "Cayenne Cailean"? Cayden’s cousin from Louisiana?
katina: haha what’s the Golarion version of Louisiana?
sara marie: Lousiana is so special it doesn’t have equivalents
lissa: Oh that would be the best... Unless you're chasing someone and trying to find them.
Thank you for your feedback. I'm not sure who it was that told you there were no promos (it could have even been me!) but you are correct, we need to be more clear about the various promos released at Gen Con.
The red minis were, as Eric mentioned above, from the PFS special on Friday night. When we started the show, we had two promos at the booth, one for purchases over $50 (goblin mini) and one for purchases over $100 (minimate). We ran out of the minimate way earlier than we expected. Usually we say "while supplies last" for the promo minis and when we are out of a promo, we are out. However, having run out so much earlier than we expected, we did some scrambling and ended up using the leftover PFS Special mini (Red Slaver Demon) as a replacement for the $100+ purchase level. The Gen Con booth is pretty chaotic within the first couple days, and I don't think we ever had a break in the line of customers ready to check out. It is really hard to communicate switches and new things to everyone who might be switching shifts, going on break, and so on when it's that busy. No one wants to be the person that starts accidentally giving something away that was supposed to be reserved for a special purpose, like the Slaver Demons were originally set to be.
I am truly sorry that this confusion caused frustration for you. While the cashier was incorrect when you inquired about the promos that replaced the minimate, I know it was due to confusion on their part/Paizo's part and not out of malice or to intentionally lie to you. I appreciate you bringing this up and in the future, if something occurs where you are upset with something a Paizo employee did or did not do, please contact Customer Service as soon as possible so we can clear it up right away. I feel awful that this happened and has been bothering you for an entire year!
For Gen Con 2015, I think we can definitely make sure that the Paizo staff at the booth are more aware of our promotions and any changes that occur mid-show. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to learn and grow.
gary: hey you can't just dash off a post like that
sara marie: gary, i thought the format of the overhead thread was the perfect courier for that joke
gary: oh some jokes won't fit in the overhead thread
sara marie: would those ones be sans comic?
robot chris: "sans comic" is a sign for me to nope right out of here
sara marie: i am so sorry i will stop
robot chris: ...
Generally speaking we try to keep the number of variant subscriptions to a particular product line to one. Comics and Comics Deluxe are the only current exceptions and that is due to the variant covers.
I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread up as I really don't see it going anywhere good at this point.
katina: I just realized that being a wizard must be awesome because you can just apparate places
liz: increased drunkenness leads to arcane spell failure
katina: portkeys could be good
katina: Uber should start using thestrals
qa erik: its a good practice until you run into the loansharks.
katina: I don’t even wanna know how much you shell out to them
qa erik: it'll turn even the richest person into an urchin
katina: just don’t beach to us if you get caught in their nets
gary: eel have to pay the sandpiper, i tell you what
qa erik: I'm better off than most, I don't have a tuna student loans
katina: Oh man, mine are like an anchor

I'm really curious about the new class and iconic for this one.
There is nothing in the general Paladin requirements that says anything about the alignment implications or morality of nudity, chastity or sexuality.
Individual deity requirements, specific denominations or cults, or other groups paladins might get mixed up in may have their own variations of tenants/beliefs on the issue.

I've added your case incentive to your order. Not sure why it didn't go on, but you should be good now!

I just don't want people to assume they are getting something extra surprising besides the usual promo card (which card game subscribers already expect from the card deck) and then getting confused when they can't find it.
sara marie: gary all i am hearing is “Here is this new power source sara, have fun.”
robot chris: funny, I hear the whirring of a sawblade made of knives
I guess I can keep mush-face Feiya tucked in the back of my Iconics case...
The name is actually Melty-Face Feiya and versions of this mini are displayed with tender loving care on or around all of customer services' desks.
Rumors that a close up picture of Melty-Face Feiya's face is my ichat avatar can neither be confirmed nor denied.
We're updating the PaizoCon recap blog with the following links, but I wanted this to have lots of visibility since so many people asked about when and where the Know Direction recordings of PaizoCon would be.
Here's the link to the Preview Banquet:
And here is the link to their convention archive: http://knowdirectionpodcast.com/category/podcasts/convention-podcasts/
Congratulations and thank you again to Ryan and Jefferson our Volunteers of the Year: 2014 for all the work they do in the community with their podcast.
And remember if you have any feedback for PaizoCon 2015 you can post it in the feedback thread here: http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2savh?Official-PaizoCon-2015-Feedback-Thread.
Upon further reflection, I think this thread is better off just closed up and removed. OP, if you want to try posting again without the swearing in the thread title or anti-muslim overtones in the description, please feel free, if you need the text of the original post, just shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(I've redacted the address listed in one of the above post.. The Paizo/Pathfinder community is awesome, but these are publicly accessible forums and we do not recommend posting personal information such as addresses).
While we love how our community is already stepping up with interest in donating to help out homeless youth, we have some logistical and operational concerns and we feel its a little too close to the show to start making plans for this year. Reading this thread has definitely got our minds going about what we can do for 2016 and beyond, but we feel its just too short notice to set this up properly for PaizoCon 2015.
Bahbrahb, I'll be sending you an email later today with some more details, including setting up Cocoon House with some gaming supplies to get the kids' weekly game started. Thank you for your awesome work helping youth through this non-profit. I hope you have a wonderful convention!
See you there!
