They always sell for less - if paizo sold them to us at distributor prices, amazon would undercut them. You can't win a price war against amazon.
And in the process, lowering prices on our site would upset a lot of FLGS who do not have the option to slash prices that low and we do not want to undercut brick & mortar retailers.
You could IMO easily justify a wider-spread use of cantrips anyway. One elder could teach generations of children through young adults enough basics of magic to have people coming of age with the ability to use the lowest level of magic, though, culturally, you have to look at a small number of spells that a community would teach everyone.
Can you imagine a village who's teenagers can all cast Daze, Mage Hand, Dancing Lights and Ghost sounds. I sense some hilarious hijinks would happen... until someone pokes an eye out of course.
I removed some additional posts and replies. If you have a question or concern about forum moderation, please contact us at email@example.com or in the website feedback forum. The most important rule of the Paizo community is that to foster a fun and friendly place: Don't be a jerk. This includes comments directed at other posters or at staff members.
Heads up, I spend 40+ hours a week working less than 10 ft from a gninja. No flaws that I can see so far. I'll report back if I find any.
Estimated time remaining: 2296 minutes, 29 seconds
I'm letting auto pilot take over and will check to make sure we haven't crashed tomorrow morning. I'd warn you that stretching the auth run over more than one day might cause some issues with the view of your My Subscription page but its already having issues so...
I'll check back in tomorrow.
I've confirmed we are charging you shipping, just neglected to included a number in the shipping & handling line. Its still factored into the total. I can neither confirm nor deny I started the auth with your account on purpose during my pre-flight check for the auth run and that you are currently being used as an example of what should not be happening with preorders in sidecarts.
So here's the deal folks. I really dislike locking threads. Really, really, really dislike it. Especially ones where people are talking about rules, what they find is confusing or needs FAQ or is errata, etc, because I like to be able to direct customers who have rules questions to the boards. I like being able to tell fans and new customers that they can come to the messageboards with their questions and we have a lot of really knowledgable and helpful people who can answer things or offer suggestions. I like being proud of the community surrounding Paizo and Pathfinder and their willingness to work together and help each other when there are questions or issues. I don't want to lock threads like this because I want someone new or new to this issue to be able to find this thread and find it useful. I want them to be able to ask for clarification on a post they find confusing or follow up advice on something. And the reason I wasted an hour clearing out a bunch of derailing, unhelpful and bitter posts that you all know better than to post is because I want to make sure that other people who come and have questions about damage dice increases don't have to wade through those posts or don't beg me for rules clarifications (which CS can't and doesn't do) because the boards are too toxic.
Specifically to address some of the things that got removed in this thread, here are some general bits of messageboard etiquette.
When you feel you need to get in one last little point or barb in a internet argument, it is better to stop and just move on. We don't edit posts, so if you include your opinion of an off-topic, contentious issue which is currently derailing a thread along with your main, on-topic point, you may find the entire post removed. Keep in mind, if you are continuing to propagate a massive derail, you may risk experianing the same consequences that befall the instigators.
When you feel like you are contributing in a manner that edges a thread into removal or locking territory, please revisit your decision to contribute, or even to continue participating in the thread.
Thank you for your time and attention for the duration of this post. I'm going to reopen the thread now. I have every confidence in y'all to keep this place helpful and useful.
If you have questions or concerns about moderation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Going forward post in this thread should focus on questions or discussion of damage dice increases.
This thread is about a topic that tends to incite a lot of passionate discussions. It has the potential for both going just fine orgoing poorly. I think we have an awesome community here and I am willing to give this thread the benefit of the doubt and I trust you all can keep any discussions here civil and friendly.

sara: wow... suddenly dust motes everywhere
cosmo: *turns up the Pantera*
sara: Its a rare and beautiful thing when a customer can make you tear up and miss them.
