James please see it from my perspective. I started collecting Dungeon and Dragon Magazine during the Age of Worms era and loved it. Stayed with it through Savage Tide, hopped immediately onto the Pathfinder bandwagon from the end of the print magazines. I have been here before so long and subscribed all the way through. I have personally enjoyed every single piece of published Pathfinder material that paizo has ever produced. I am now in a position to say thank you in some way to one of it's long time and key employees, and I want to do it. If I were for example meeting George Lucas I would get something for Vic and Lisa, but instead I am here in Drumheller for the weekend, and I am going to get you a prize to say thanks. So don't feel guilty about it :PAnd yes if I do meet George Lucas I will get something for Vic and Lisa, likewise if I come in possession of a llama I will send it to Patrick Renie.

Well your getting something anyway so might as well let me know :P List your favorite dinosaurs and I'll see what they have.
I don`t doubt their are people out there like that. But the problem is for them you have a constitution with a freedom of religion clause in it. It would never stand up in court and certainly not in the supreme court. And as I said before I doubt the US especially with it`s heavy religious background would let such a law pass. I see same sex marriage following pretty much the same vein it did in other countries. Besides a pastor, priest ley minister, etc... may have a license to marry but is not required to marry everyone who asks. Many churchs have a process for even straight couples such as marriage courses and the like they must take before they can get married at the church. It`s just like me having a drivers license, sure I have a license to drive but I`m not required to drive everyone who asks me for a ride. Plain and simple.

I highly doubt that the government would tell churches they would have to marry gay people. In fact of the 13 countries that gay marriage exists not one has actually done that. For example I live in Canada. Canada passed same-sex marriage in 2006. The law as written openly states no church has to marry anyone for doing so is against their religious freedoms. It even goes further than that, in Canada a government official, judge, or justice of the peace who would normally be obligated can ask another authorized official in their area to perform the ceremony if they feel uncomfortable doing so. Chances are if such legislation's don`t exist anywhere else the United States is unlikely to be the first.

I can add to even Vics post if I might.In this example, we have 3 GMs in the city in which I live who I know quite well. They have been playing Pathfinder for varying amounts of time but all for a not insignificant amount of time. Well name them Jeremy(me), Dan, and Fred, and just for fun I will throw in my buddy Manny from Nova Scotia.
Jeremy(me)- is the oldest GM has been collecting RPG stuff for more than a decade and has all the Pathfinder stuff printed by Paizo and some 3PP stuff.
Dan- Has been playing Pathfinder for a few years, owns a lot of the hardcovers and a few AP issues and nothing else.
Fred- owns just the core rulebook.
Manny- Owns a few hardcovers and about a dozen AP issues. (Which he only subscribed to the AP line because I constantly bugged him to do so)
The players that play in these groups 12 of them own a core rulebook, of 16 players.

Most people can't spend $440 bi annually on gaming stuff but it works for people like me. I have no kids this is my sole hobby I don't drink smoke, gamble, or do "other" recreational activities. So while my income isn't large these are perfectly fine to get twice a year. Plus I do it the smart way SUBSCRIBE it makes it much cheaper. If you really want them then do it the smart way. I understand the minis line isn't financially viable for everyone but there are other options1) Save up over the year to get them cause you know approximately when they will be coming.
2) Subscribe and save a large percentage on the case and premium mini.
3) If 1 and 2 aren't viable pick up lesser denominations of minis and buy singles, then wait until the next set releases to get the old premium mini or go to the secondary market to get it.
4) If none of this works for you then maybe this product isn't for you.
All this to say there are lots of options on Paizo.
Okay something I think should be addressed. How would someone be Transgendered in Golarion among the common Races.
I am truly curious as to how it would be.
I am currently playing a Chelaxian heritage Paladin of Iomedae, who is a gay man. He isn't effeminate but he also doesn't hide his sexuality. He is currently located in Varisia and is treated for the most part as normal as anyone else. (other than the occasional traditionalist chelaxian). As far as the GM is concerned the church hierarchy cares little about who I love other than that person should also be honorable and good and dutiful. He is a known quantity and a source of rumors in the town mainly because he is very good looking and the ladies of the town would like me to find a nice man :P
Hey guys sorry for the absence..... Work has gotten the better of me lately as well as life. I still have ROTRL Minis to send to some of you guys that I promised to deliver. And I will as soon as funds and life allows (likely as soon as christmas is done). Hope everyone is good despite recent tragedies I just can't wrap my head around right now. I just have to many sanity warping things in my personal life to add more to the pile.

Thanks for the info James. For with such info I may not know who killed Aroden, I do however believe I know the situation surrounding his death. So far I posit since a deity is safest in their own realm the seat of their power, it was an open secret that Aroden was to leave his realm and go to Westcrown at the appointed time. Someone or something or any number or variations of the above ambushed Aroden when he left his realm and killed him....... still not sure whom. But I think I am drawing closer to the answer.
1)James what year did Aroden die?

Sorry for taking so long to reply. But it wasn`t intentional not putting the Pathfinder books on the top shelf. It had to do with how the shelf filled up categorically. Plus the shelf is old and the top shelf actually has a tendency to fall out so I tend not to do major book rearrangements on it as a result so I do beg your forgiveness.
Also would you like updated photos of my Pathfinder Battles mini display case as more sets come out?
Heya I also live in Saskatoon moved here a year ago and I have been a pathfinder addict since it first released. I play and Gm depending on the needs of the group I also have a large collection of miniatures and Dwarvenforge terrain . I am willing to allow for DM usage of such tools as necessary.
And this is why they call me The Minis Maniac.
Hey James. Not sure if you remember but I am the guy who got "The James Jacobs heart shaped stamp of approval for naming my RPG room into a Pathfinder Lodge". Without further ado here is the link to the pictures of the current Pathfinder Lodge on the great expansive prairies of Canada.

I do get the sectarianism of atheism. I know my chosen brand of atheism likely doesn't jive with other atheists. I brand myself a moral ecumenicalist atheist. I can even expand on that.
Moral- Personal responsibility for ones behavior. Where my morality does not come from the dictates of a deity, it comes from social obligation to better society in whatever way I can. I interpret that by being as personally environmental as I can to do my part. I also do what I can in my chosen profession to improve standard of life for those around me. (not that is much)
Ecumenicalist- Most religious folks aren't frothing at the mouth exetremists, those are just the ones you see on the news because exetremism gets better ratings than non exetremism. I agree there needs to be those who oppose exetremism, but I fundamentally disagree with anti- theism at this level. I don't find it necessary to evangelise atheism. I also don't think it is okay to try and humiliate or anger good peaceful religious folks by trying to shatter their world view, in fact I find that just mean and destructive. I think it much more worthwhile to focus your goals on peaceful coexistence with religious folks. Fighting usually gets you nowhere.
