I didn't get the confirmation email, but that wasn't that important anyway. Still, I checked my order and saw this, which is sort of confusing:
Subtotal (6 items) $24.48
Which means something weird is going on somewhere. Could you please clarify it? Thanks again!
Dear Paizo people,
I received an email letting me know of a problem with Order # 3461479. I noticed there that my RPG subscription still is active. On March 2 I asked for its cancellation (here: http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2s18r?Please-cancel-my-subscription).
Could you please remove the Pathfinder Unchained (OGL) Hardcover from my order?
I imagine it's a case of not being able to figure out the proper voltage and/or other parts of power generation that I don't understand! Probably the same reasons we don't try to power things with lightning bolts and such.
The one time I tried, my flux capacitor overloaded. Seems that that particular lightning bolt had 1.85 gigawatts instead of the expected 1.21. I ended up traveling to 1545 instead of 1945, and you know how awkward that can be.
Basically, nothing is canon unless you want it to be.
Events referenced in the novels as being "Golarion history" could be considered sort-of canonical, except they might turn out to be misleading information because no one in Golarion actually knows what happened in those times and the version stated in the novel is history "as far as the characters know it".
Biggest likely reason: Silver dragons are very cool, Huma and all from Dragonlance. Silver dragons are the #2 good dragon, and good dragons are supposed to be stronger than evil generally. But with just cold immunity, Silver dragons were only resistant to the very *least* of evil dragons, the barely sentient whites. Adding Acid immunity made them formidable foes for Black and Green, but still not overly dominant against the stronger Blues and Reds.
This is one explanation I would gladly accept as valid. I really love it when something in Pathfinder happens "because Dragonlance". No sarcasm, Dragonlance is my all-time favorite setting.
I simply assume that all magic has a Visible Spooky Effect.
Paladin casting Detect Evil? Her eyes shine with the light of her deity.
Sorcerer casting stilled silent Detect Thoughts? A vague blue nimbus appears around his head.
Seems to flow well with every single illustration of a spellcaster doing his mojo published in the books.
It may have to do with the glue used and your humidity levels. If the air in your home/city is just dry enough, it can cause the glue to crack and lose its gluey-ness. I know it doesn't help you and I'm sorry that it's happening, but I work in publishing and when you ship books to different climates you get some pretty unexpected results.
I once took a paperback printed in the UK on holiday to the Amazon. Within fifteen minutes of getting off the airplane, the book had swollen to at least three times its original thickness. It was part of a box set, and it never again fit its case.
I'm just trying to explain that this doesn't necessarily mean that Paizo's printers are using sub-standard glue, it might just be an unfortunate coincidence of it not being able to withstand your specific climate.
Also? I have a strong feeling it's gonna happen (either show or animation (most likely animation)), why? They're already working on an audio book of RotRL, they've got novels and comics, where else could they possibly branch out to? They've done a board game, APs for long term adventuring, modules for short term adventuring, scenarios for both events and single sessions and I'd say yes, I'm pretty sure we can look forward to this (unless they've got a video game in mind first).
Well, there's this rather hush-hush little project they're working on called Pathfinder Online...
Novels, comics, an MMORPG... a cartoon is really the next logical step.
Remember that you're not exactly "combining" with the eidolon, you're sort of wearing a spectral eidolon suit. You don't lose your own hands.
"A synthesist summons the essence of a powerful outsider to meld with his own being. The synthesist wears the eidolon like translucent, living armor. The eidolon mimics all of the synthesist’s movements, and the synthesist perceives through the eidolon’s senses and speaks through its voice, as the two are now one creature."
I saw that one coming too. As per a recent FAQ, racially-granted SLAs count as spells of the same level for qualifying for PCs.
But it's one of those questions where my answer is "if it smells like gouda, tastes like gouda and runs like gouda...".
"At 1st level, a gunslinger gains one of the following firearms of her choice: blunderbuss, musket, or pistol. Her starting weapon is battered, and only she knows how to use it properly. All other creatures treat her gun as if it had the broken condition. If the weapon already has the broken condition, it does not work at all for anyone else trying to use it. This starting weapon can only be sold for scrap (it’s worth 4d10 gp when sold)."
I have to agree with Xaratherus, it's not that the gun is broken, it's that it is treated as if it were broken/had the broken condition. It even goes as far as saying that if the gun were actually broken, it would not work at all for anyone else.
It was a hard choice between this one and the Beginner Box one, but this image is just... a classic? Can it be a classic already? It's certainly iconic.
"Big enough for your Core Rulebook and other campaign essential books..." as long as I can fit two hardcovers and four campaign setting books I'll be happier than a dog with two tails.

Maybe I am a minority. Does that make me any less valuable of a client?
In any case, I wonder how many 4E players will move on to DDN. It might be 100% (which is probably what WotC is hoping for), it might be less.
I'm wondering if DDN will continue to offer support for 4E once the new edition rolls out. If it does, cookies to them. If it doesn't, then those who played 4E but don't plan to move to DDN (however many that may be) will get a rough deal once again.

See, I only subscribe for Dragon and Dungeon, and have done so since the online subs became available. Every month I would download the PDFs and print them out, and make my own dead tree versions. I keep yearly backups of every digital issue so far, too, so the library doesn't hold any interest for me.
Funny thing, though, I don't play 4E, and while I did give the DDN playtest a try, it really isn't my cup of tea. I read the articles and adapt what I like to PF. The digital tools hold zero value to me.
Now I'm really saddened to see these magazines go.
