For all those who want something more off the beaten path: go and check out ENworld's ZEITGEIST adventure path (Act One collection available here). This is something very different, and even gets a raving review from Endzeitgeist.

Backed this in Kickstarter, and I can't wait to get my hands on the hardcover. EZG's review is spot on. This is a great adventure, one I'd love to run.

More like "used to" than "usually". The last two month the local shop here in GERMANY had the products for sale before mine were even shipped or I got access to the PDFs. And this month seems to be gearing up for third in a row,

I love it how this adventure feels just like it's set in Borderlands' Pandora.

What's this Bender reference I keep reading? Doesn't sound like Futurama to me.

Paizo always stated that this is the way they want to go, even before Dreamscarred's psionics.

And no, psionics (as presented by Dreamscarrd) will most certainly have no official place in Golarion, that is exactly what psychic magic is for. Paizo probably have chosen not to use this third party content because they feel its mechanics and flavor do not fit their vision for their game setting. And it is certainly not Paizo's responsibility to provide a rationale as to why third party mechanics could co-exist with official Pathfinder RPG rules.

I like having the classic psionic attack and defense modes back as new psychic spells. Only psionic blast is missing, probably because of the name, and mind blank had already become a spell in D&D3.

Wow, how awesome is it that the medium's spirits are named after the Harrow deck cards?

While reading the Shattered Star Player's Guide I just noticed this entry in the list of benefits characters can buy with their prestige points:

Shattered Star Player's Guide wrote:
Fame 5, 1 PP: Become familiar with an uncommon or rare spell (at the GM’s discretion) from a Pathfinder lodge library, allowing a bard, sorcerer, or similar spellcaster to select it as a spell known at the next available opportunity (this benefit allows the character to gain access to bard or sorcerer spells from sources other than the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook without having to do spell research or find a copy of the spell while adventuring).

Since you have to pay to get this benefit, this seems to imply that normally, bards, sorcerers, or similar spellcasters can only take new known spells from the Core Rulebook, and if they want to take "uncommon" spells (i.e. spells from sources other than the Core Rulebook), they would have to either research them, or come across them on an adventure).

Is this an intended ruling?

I'm not expecting ready access to tech guns, I was just hoping to get ONE that was useful before I hit 5, and am highly disapointed that I most likely won't. Unless I beg my party to pool all the gathered funds and beg the GM to let me buy one.

Consider that expected character wealth at level 5 is 10,500 gp. Then check out the prices for the tech guns you're expecting. An arc pistol, a laser pistol, or a zero pistol each costs 10,000 gp (which is, for example, more expensive that a magical +2 weapon).

Expecting to get equipment like that at level 5 or earlier is... optimistic, to say the least.

Planescape in a nutshell: "Hey there, stupid 1st-edition player! You thought you knew the names of planes and their creatures? Hahaha, we have changed all those names, in truth because we must comply to political correctness and cannot risk to offend unnamed parties, but we'll just pretend the new names have always been the correct names and the old names were just the ones known only to stupid ignoramuses like YOU! So it's your fault alone! In addition we're making up a new and stupid jargon to talk down to you, just because it's all the rage in other successful games now."

Never actually cared for Planescape and the abrasive tone of those books at all. Also the ugly cartoonish DiTerlizzi artwork. I've hated that product line right from the start. And Sigil itself simply never made any sense at all to me.

So, no, thanks.

Of course, I won't cancel my sub because I can always scavenge the AP for statblocks, maps, monsters and support articles. The beauty of Paizo APs is that you can always use the content even if the AP itself is not to your tastes.

Somehow I find it funny to see you complaining, with you being the one that usually makes fun of other people's complaining about APs :)

Actually a Paizo adventure path featuring orcs in more than a single encounter can easily be taken as weird, experimental and/or special, given what we've seen so far.

Too bad, very unprofessional. I know is not a big deal, but I've paid 25 British pounds for a faulty product. First rule for any business: the customer doesn't pay your mistakes, even if it is a small one. I don't mind if is not a big deal, is YOUR mistake. At least you could have decrease the price of the book, or at least, let the retailers know as the customer can decide about paying for a faulty product or not. Because in Amazon, the photo of the book had the correct logo. I am going to return my copy and wait for a reprint

Don't forget to stomp your feet!

Well not everybody will want weird and experimental all the time, and I'm not even talking about myself.

I don't think calling it "rehash" is being entirely fair. Or you'll have to apply that to Fires of Creation as well., Rehash of a 30-year-old module, how boring!

What are you even expecting?

Whereas some were considering cancelling for Mummy's Mask and/or Iron Gods, I am at that point now. Both Giantslayer and Hell's Rebels seem a bit too vanilla for my tastes, it might be time to pause my subscription for 2015. We'll see.

Well, I am sure, Paizo will be able to do great things even with a seemingly "vanilla" premise.

4) Debate is healthy and in this case there is really no right or wrong answer.

Except there is. Paizo have published an extensive article about the "ecology of the android" in Fires of Creation about the nature of androids, and the creative director has already contradicted your position in this very thread. Your view of androids is definitely not what androids in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting is.

I would disagree, I would say androids aren't human and they aren't living beings which means to me that they should be "it" not her nor him...

Actually they are living beings, and they have a soul. In game terms, they are humanoids with the android subtype, and thus affected by anything that targets living creatures. They do, however, have the Constructed extraordinary ability, similar to inevitables, so they are also target by effects that constructs. The fact that they have souls and outward sexes implies that they also have gender, and as such should not be referred to as "it" unless you have the intention of insulting them.

Concerning Mass Effect, the male voice acting by Marc Meer can't hold a candle to the female by Jennifer Hale. Her performance is one of the best things of the trilogy. If you haven't played as a female Shepard, you're really missing out on these games.

Some folks are asking that a specific aesthetic be acknowledged, an aesthetic that when you think about it goes all the way back to like Ancient Greece.

It's not really my cup of tea, but if folks want handsome skinny dudes I'm not going to hold it against them.

It's not the aesthetics that has me rolling my eyes, it's the otaku terminology.

I hope the Innersea race book will have a lot of info on races like the Lashunta, Android, etc. If it focuses mostly on the core then I might just skip that one.

Lashunta hardly qualify as an "Inner Sea Race".

The fact that Pathfinder Pawns for swarms usually consist of four individual Small-sized pawns tends to indicate the shapable option.

I am delighted that Paizo as a whole has made money off of a genre of gaming born out of consumer exploitation (having to pay for things you will never use because they are bundled with things you will).

Do you even know how the Adventure Card Game works? It has nothing to do with CCG or LCG deckbuilding games.

I'm looking forward to this game, actually more so than if they had announced a CRPG right away.

They could even do a simultaneous reveal, considering GenCon and gamescom are both this weekend. That would be cool.

In fact, D&D getting rid of Vancian spellcasting resulted in the edition thaX obviously didn't like ("the edition that shall not be named").

Anyway, thaX, there are those of us that are perfectly happy with Vancian spellcasting and don't think it needs "modernizing", so please do not presume to speak for everybody.

Also, I would be very surprised if a new Pathfinder edition would not be released under the OGL. The OGL has nothing to do with the mechanics of the game. They could create a completely new game that has no similarity to D&D or Pathfinder, and still be licensed under the OGL. In fact, several such games exist.

Ha, reading about "You stand in the presence of the most glorious mistress, Lady Xaivanshee of Zura, third daughter of House Rasivrein” reminded me of a certain "daughter of the Fifth House of Betazed, holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, and heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed." Maybe I'll let that influence me how to play her. Sounds fun.

Actually, it's just set up that way for the purpose of having easy-to-describe backer rewards. If you scroll down to the Add-Ons section, it says Although the backer rewards for physical items say "ships to USA only," if you are outside the USA you can select any of those rewards if you add $15 for shipping.

Ah, I missed that. Thanks for pointing it out, Sean!
