Rather than poking the bag, could you perhaps produce your evidence for the rather strange assertion that "these themes" are central to the AP? I mean, clearly you see something in there that I don't.

I did poke the bag, his post was intolerant toward others and appears it has been removed. It was also a perfect example of the discord this topic has produced.

Now lets produce some evidence...two main NPCs which should be kept alive and will help you throughout the AP.

It appears that Paizo sells to many who would champion the GLBT cause, and that's just fine. However including this topic that not all agree on seems to have overshadowed a great piece of work. Again I'm not against the topic just the time and place.

Another lesbian couple eh? I really appreciate Paizo's inclusion of LGBT characters, but come on - where are the gay men? Sigh.
There's a couple in the 2nd adventure. Never fear!
I hope it doesn't get overdone though. We get it, inclusiveness is good, just don't beat me over the head with it. I'm cool with everyone loving everyone but some moderation makes it feel more organic and less forced. I hope that didn't make me sound like a hater. I'm really not.

All I can say is that I don' think it's been overdone... but my/Paizo's take on what is and isn't "overdone" will vary wildly when compared to the customers' takes.

In the end, it's up to each GM how to handle things like relationships in their games, or how those relationships are organized.

But being inclusive is a big deal for us at Paizo, and including GLBT characters in adventures is important, since that helps raise awareness and promotes inclusivity. And it's something we're going to keep doing as we head into the future!

It looks like the GLBT has become the central focus of this AP. It's a current hot topic that not everyone can agree on, in and outside of this forum. I have no problem with the GLBT war for equality. However, I question the time and place of this battle.

Everyone loves Paizo's creations, that's why many like myself have spent well over a thousand dollars on their product. Its fun to turn off reality and step into a good story every now and again. That's why it saddens me to see this game turned into a bandstand for the current GLBT social movement. If this topic is one that will cause discord within the Paizo family and distract from the product so many love paying for, why force it.

With that being said, I love and accept you all for who you are... great game designers!
