Thank you all in advance for any assistance to help me improve my entry.

Earth Bread
Aura faint Alteration; CL 5th
Slot none; Price 1250 gp; Weight - lb.

Description
Earth Bread appears as small rounded pebbles ranging in size from peas to marbles and is much prized by travelers. When the stones are placed in the mouth, and gently sucked like a piece of hard candy they will either provide the sustenance of an average meal of food and drink, or will provide the affects of an Endure Elements spell for 24 hours. The user chooses the effect when they place the Earth Bread in their mouth. The Earth Bread must be sucked on for one minute before the effect will be realized. The Earth Bread maybe be shared between individuals with no ‘wait time’ between uses, but each user must suck on the Earth Bread for one minute to activate the effect. After five total uses, sustenance or Endure Elements, the Earth Bread Grows sour and no longer provides sustenance or Endure Elements. Sucking on an Earth Bread for less than one minute will have no effect and does consume a use.
After an Earth Bread has grown sour it can be ground with a stone mortar and pestle and mixed with an equal portion of pristine rock salt to produce a powder with medicinal properties. One piece of Earth Bread, regardless of size, will produce a powder with the effect of a single ‘Cure Light Wounds’ potion CL 5 (1d8+5) when sprinkled on a wound. Using the powder obeys all the rules of potion use.

Earth Bread is believed to occur naturally in underground areas where the earth magic is strong or the first world lies near but they can also be created magically.

Construction
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, create food and water, Endure elements, Cure Light Wounds; Cost 625 gp

Back to my orignal statement - why don't I have a choice; if I don't want to share my e-mail with the planet I have to find the programs to strip my e-mail from the free download.

How is embedding personal information into the file player friend.

It's not a matter of how easy it is to remove; the question is why does paizo; claiming happy players are their priority; embed my personal data into a free file that they *SHOULD* want me to share.

It's a FREE download. What Paizo wants (afaict) is for people to create an account and download it themselves. I don't think they want people sharing the files independently. Of course, I don't work for Paizo, so I may be mistaken, but that's the idea I've gotten on the topic...

The e-mail is visible when I print the file. I don't have to share the file in a questionable way. Once I print the file I have to protect the printout the same way I do my bank statements - it now has personal information.

What ever Paizo's intention; the horrible web design that sends you in circles, the 'how much spam can we send you' when you create the requried account to download the file, 'buying' the 'free' file before you can download, and now embedding my e-mail in the file has convinced me that paizo is no more gamer friendly than WoTc. Shame really, I had hopes. Oh, well. I wish you all the best of luck, I just can't see paizo as gamer centric when my experience so far has been so needlessly bad.

Why is my e-mail address embedded in the 'free' down load of the Pathfinder rules?

If I lose *one* page I risk being put on every spam list on the planet.

Why put my private information in a public 'free' file?

This is *NOT* player friendly at all.
