I suspect the additional rules will largely be available through some sort of rules reference document at Paizo, and possibly some fan-run site for those that prefer a different format.
Pediophobia - fear of dolls
The more you know.
I bet my local public library could be convinced to host some PSA events if materials were to be donated...
I'd even love a PaizoCon Lite East. Obviously with less ease for employees to be in the east, you'd have to lessen the seminars and what not, but even just a 2 day lots of PACG and RPG with a few Paizo and Loneshark Employees would be fantastic. And I think Delaware would be the perfect state for such a thing.
Oh, the joys of tax-free shopping...
I prefer descriptive linguistics to prescriptive, and so don't mind the use of the singular they. It was used commonly, fell out of fashion for a while, and is coming back into vogue. It's of tremendous help when discussing non-binary gender, or any time you want to leave gender out of it. That said, I could see some people misinterpreting it as a plural they. It looks to me like Paizo's system is in line with (or slightly ahead of) its time.
I had a similar experience to Ragadolf.
I played through all of the B scenarios and the only bugs I ran into were:
little to no gold acquired due to constant connection drops
I don't mind either as I intend to pick up the Season Pass as soon as it's working consistently.
I do hope Ameiko becomes available as a playable character in regular scenarios.
In the meantime, I'm gonna play as much of the scenarios available to me as my free time will allow.
Very happy to finally have this game in hand, bugs or no bugs. :)
Don't forget the Season Pass option. $25 unlocks all 6 adventures (as they come out) and all of the standard characters immediately. In-game currency (earned by playing) can still be used for other unlockables.
Pick what works best for your situation.
Pricing, offers, and release date subject to change.
Slightly off topic, but is there any book with this type of detail on the Tien deities? Not necessarily the obediences, but just giving more detail on the fluff than the single paragraph write-ups they got in Gods and Magic and the Dragon Empires Primer? If so, I missed it. I'd love to see a book like this dedicated to Shizuru, Tsukiyo, etc.
I haven't had a chance to read it myself, but you might have more luck in the Dragon Empires Gazetteer.
The piñata monster, coming to Bestiary 6, takes a -10 to stealth anywhere but in a bazaar or children's party. It's basically just there for 1st-level PCs to beat on. Features prominently in We Be Goblins 5 (working title), where it may result in a player death for the unwary Poog. [/DREAMS&LIES]
Also, Zyphus' favored weapon is the scythe, right? right!? I've needed a fun harvester god for a while now. :)
Perhaps reducing the frequency of lower level banes as you move into higher level adventures, especially if the player regularly beats them handily, and similarly reducing the frequency of lower level boons, especially if the player acquires them, but regularly throws them out in the deck rebuilding stage (maybe with exceptions for potions or other disposables).
I played through RotR with Kyra and loved it. I've never quite been able to get Merisiel to work for me. I'll have to try again on March 29th.
There's a PhD program!? And here I thought I was sitting pretty with a Master's in System Mastery. No wonder I can't get any of the good jobs in the Modular Industry.
I'M FINE GUYS! I CAN TOTALLY SHMITE ALL DAY! JUST SHOW ME SOME NEER-DOES-WELL, er, NE'ER-DO-GOODERS, um, BAD GUYSH!

I really hope we get those two characters in the digital game for more than the tutorials. Ameiko is one of my favorite NPCs in Pathfinder.
I was initially worried that price was going to be an issue. Looks like I needn't have. That said, some sort of incentive (say a discount) for those who buy the physical decks to also pick up the digital copy would be nice. Either way, I'm planning on a Day 1 purchase.
Also, very excited about this game. I like playing the physical game with friends, but it's hard to get everyone's schedule to line up.
Finally, I hope you can keep it under $25.
I don't get why people were mad over the cover mistake, I thought it was funny. Now its like we have collector's items or something.
What a conundrum! Do I leave it as-is to preserve its "Collector's Value" or paste in the errata to make a less pretty but better functioning rule book?
I think it's time to put a rank into book repair. Would that be Craft: Books or Profession: Bookbinder (or, since it's repair, Profession: Librarian)?

Crowdforging is just another way to say playtesting,alpha testing, or beta testing. So far this game is looking like the Early Access games on Steam. People are paying to play test the game and tell the Developers how to fix those problems. If they made this free to play during this development stage, they might get more people willing to help them make it a better game. Paying to play test a game isn't very fun or appealing.
I feel what you're saying, but despite its shortcomings, it's fun to play even as a MVP (minimum viable product). The price is a little steeper than it ought to be at this point in development, but now we're just haggling.
