For me the fact that the only new stuff they added was Goblin and Alchemist just kind of bores me. Truthfully, I think at this point they'd have to change virtually the entire line up of both races/ancestries and classes for me to care about either.
But they aren't really new. The alchemist was a well documented class from a core book (just not THE core rule book). I'll grant you the goblin race was a kind of monster race, and few players cared about it. Now that it's one of the main races, Paizo tells the players that playing a goblin shouldn't be a problem in Golarion: some of them are roaming with groups of human, dwarf and elf adventurers.
I chose that I wouldn't switch to PF2, that's because I own so much PF1 content (mostly 3PP) that I am even relieved that it will end: At some point I'll be able to say that I own everything I want (which is not yet the case...)
But I love some ideas from PF2. I'll certainly houserule some parts of our PF1 campaigns to add PF2 elements in.
For those wondering: no PDF in this bundle has been sold on HB already. I checked with my collection, didn't own anything, so it was an easy buy for me.
Also, I really like these environment-specific books, which can be good bases for campaign guides if your starting setting is mainly desert, or mountains, etc...
Congratulations everyone! That's where I drop out, but it was a nice experience!
I can say it now: I fully designed my location (Lawrence's Lists) as a side-quest location because I didn't understand that it should suffice on its own for a whole adventure.
Well, I'll be sure to participate again if Designfinder 2 happens!
(I'll stay around of course... at least to vote for the next rounds, and steal the villains for my campaign...)
I just did my voting, and I have to say it has been a very nice read! Some of the locations gave me adventure ideas immediately, and that is what I valued the most when deciding on my favourites.
I don't always agree with what the judges said, but they don't always agree with each other, so I don't feel too bad about it!
Solid job everyone, I'll go now and prepare a villain... in case I'm part of the new champions. Again I have many ideas, it's going to be hard to choose.
I created the ghostly bracers.
And I fully understand about your decision, 16 items is already a lot to talk about!
(I've just seen there is a subject to discuss about the results... I missed it, sorry!)
It was a huge surprise for me to wake up this morning to this mail! Glad I'm in the top 16, but I really didn't expect that! I guss I overestimated my item's flaws... (which is natural, maybe?)
I'll take time to read all the winning items, some names are really interesting on their own!
...but I'll have to focus on the next round, as several ideas are competing for my attention, and selecting the best will be crucial.
Congratulations to everyone, even if you have not been selected, I'm sure your items were cool! (Could we have a "almost in" list? I guess it's much work for the judges, but if, in the final debates, you have eliminated some items for some reasons, could we learn about those? I'm sure it would be very interesting.
I can't find where it says so, but I think I've read about a rule saying we can reference only content from the core rule book, is that right?
So an item requesting a spell from Ultimate Intrigue to create would not be allowed, right?
Or was it that OGL Paizo content was accepted, including UI, but no 3PP?

I know I'm not the only one still waiting for an answer, so I'll just ask: If our pitch has not been selected by Zenith Games, do we get an answer? I thought it would be the case, but several authors have told me they haven't been told anything yet.
Rysky currently has the highest average at 15 & 2/3, followed closely by Uncle Teddy and John Napier at 15 & 1/3
Well, technically you could say that Sam Cameron-Mckee has the highest average, with 20, since he rolled only once and won!Unless you consider tie-breaker rolls, which makes him a 16.5, which is still the best.
(But I get that only those who roll till the end count^^)
First, I really like the product, so much that I needed to build a time warden NPC for my campaign... and here's the problem:
