Almost June, and nothing was even said about Starfinder.


May is coming to an end and no book nor word from Devir. As expected from those liars.

I'm still waiting for an update from Devir on these issues. Thanks for your patience, all. Once I have something to announce, I'll definitely let everyone know.

No news? They put you to hold on while "they'll check for an answer"?

Friendly warning: That's all we get from them in the last years when anything about Pathfinder (and now Starfinder) is asked...

For you guys may be news, but that's all that we get from them: some poor/weak runarounds/lies that "they're looking further to give an answer".

They're just making fool of you. That's the very sad true.

As long as Paizo insist/persist on Devir, Pathfinder/Starfinder will NEVER thrive or at least be decently put up for sell or properly known in Brazil...


Well, maybe, if you want a good publisher, I would recomend New Order, in Brazil. They are very carefull about their products, and have been made an excellent work with all kind of RPG you can imagine.

Thanks for that, Jim... Any news on your front?

Mid June and no news whatsoever for Inner Sea World Guide, Kingmaker and Starfinder. If it is delayed, they should at least tell us that it would be delayed.

And all they released was a free PDF of We Be Goblins Too that clearly was made on the run (I mean, two translators for a 16 page book? Very fishy). It appears that they made this in an attempt to say: "Look! We are doing things! Believe us!"

Anyway, that is just to show that a no to Devir should really happen.

I now have the Inner Sea World Guide in my hands for approvals. So yes, it is very late, but it is actually in progress.

Good news!

But I have ambiguous feelings about it.

Devir had the license of the game "Werewolf the Apocalypse" and promised to publish the tribe novel “Get of Fenris & Shadow Lords", but never did it.

The only proof of that promise is an old site (which I think they forgot to shut down): http://www.geocities.ws/demonhunter9192/devir.htm

The site above points out that the tribe novel was translated (which would be under review).

Do you have any guarantee that the file you have will be published in Brazil?

I know I must be sounding paranoid, but it's years of disappointment with Devir.

Thanks in advance!

So, after more than 2 months of delay they send you ONE book of FOUR they promised to be released until june/2018? That's not so nice... but ok! Let's just hope this will have an acceptable quality (differently than the brazilian Core Rulebook and Bestiary).

Will you guys review the book and point corrections?

A nice tip to review the translation quality would be check if the Outer Planes were translated, since almost all their names are "common words" in english. None of those words are equal in portuguese so they all should be translated to give the readers the same meaning. They did this mistake in older D&D versions and can just be making again...
(The exception are Abaddon and Nirvana, since they have the same meaning in portuguese than in english.)

Here is how I think this should be translated:

Translated Outer Planes:

Abaddon = Abaddon
Abyss = Abismo
Axis = Eixo
Boneyard = Ossário
Elysium = Elísio
Heaven = Céu
Hell = Inferno
Maelstrom = Sorvedouro
Nirvana = Nirvana

Silver Crusade

We have a running gag that, if you want to play a good RPG, you should learn english. Devir is the point of this joke. As a brazilian, I know that we have very few options on our market if we want RPGs with more mature themes. We have a national D20 RPG but, my personal opinion, it is too childish.

I am really sorry for some of my friends, they would love to play PF 2.0, or even PF 1.0, if we had enough translated books. I myself play on forums or online, sadly, Devir lack of quality and super slow motion releases is drying the market for Pathfinder here.

It's not Paizo fault. But Devir is not a good bussiness for us.
Three main reasons:
- Lack of content
- Lack of quality
- Lack of communication

I know it may not be the right place for this question but, okay, we have an important book translated, still without any prevision, but without major doubts. The main question is: Is there a calendar that Devir has promised to follow? Or some forecast for Starfinder?
  After all, a few months ago it was said that the schedule was June 2018.
