Back to the topic at hand...
While I am unable to be more specific, we received an update this week that has made me more optimistic than I have been in quite some time that the light at the end of the tunnel will be coming into view for everyone soon.
We're really unable to say, both for legal reasons as Vic already mentioned, and because it's an unpredictable process.
When we say that we're doing everything we can to support Ninja Division and encourage them to fulfill their obligations to their Kickstarter backers, we do actually mean it. We just can't talk about it.
I gave you some time for peace and stayed out of this for a while, but I really have to ask, when you say you are doing "everything we can to support Ninja Division and encourage them to fulfill their obligation to their kickstarter backers, we do actually mean it."What are you actually saying?
Seriously, in plain explain it to me like I'm five, what does that mean? Because, under the normal definition, word everything is all encompassing. Have you provided funds to Ninja Division to assist them in providing the product promised in the Paizo/Ninja Division Starfinder Masterclass Kickstarter? Have you filed a lawsuit against Ninja Division? Are you picketing their offices? (If they still have one.) If no, then you haven't done everything. So, am I wrong, or are we in agreement that your doing less than everything and you should have said, we are making efforts to encourage Ninja Division? What does everything mean in the context you are using it? What does 'doing everything' mean to you in this context?
Next, is there a Non-Disclosure Agreement or not? When your Chief Technical Officer says that they cannot talk in the "legally bound sense", I've asked repeatedly in this thread, assuming there is an NDA, has your company made any attempt to modify that agreement?
I've asked that question before and received no answer in what continues to be, in my perception, a pattern that Paizo will not answer any substantive question posed here, and will only give a reassuring platitude if pressed enough. To date, those platitudes have yet to yield any tangible results or any commitments of any time frame in which results could be expected.
As time passes, there is no change. Backers are still out their funds, Ninja Division and Paizo have gotten their funds. (You all refuse to answer if you have received the royalty from Ninja Division, but Ninja Division has stated that they provided a royalty in one of their updates that we've estimated that has provided Paizo with approximately 40k. Now would be a great time stated that you didn't receive any funds for this Kickstarter if you actually didn't. Again, salient question, that most likely will not be answered. Go ahead, give a direct and straight forward answer to this, surprise me.)
We are now more than two years out from the estimated delivery date for this Kickstarter.
Ninja Division hasn't provided an update on the Kickstarter page in over a month.
So, I have to ask, and this is the most important question here, what is Paizo willing to do to make it right for the backers of this Kickstarter as Ninja Division has surpassed the two year mark for failure and no one is willing or able to provide any detailed information to show that there will any fulfillment in the near future, or even ever?
(I gave you a break leading up to Paizo Con and a chance to have purported efforts bear fruit, as there has been no tangible results, I'm back.)
