Is there a way to reissue this cancelled order without The Book of the Damned?

So GenCon attendees get their dice before a backer does? All because the (well established, I might add) companies involved couldn't be bothered to ship copper dice and other assorted trinkets separately? As a frequent backer I'm used to some BS excuses on KS, but established companies failing this hard, with a moving goal post of expectations makes me wonder whom the project manager was and if they've been sacked yet.
Why not tell us that due to GenCon it'll be mid October before US backers can expect to see their rewards?
next update - "GenCon come see us! Sorry no more shipments until after con"
following update - "We got sick at GenCon no/slow dice shipping for next couple weeks"
following update (mid October) - "Good news! We are shipping your dice look for your shipping notice!"
Now wait 4-6 weeks for shipping...

Prove me wrong, I bet you won't!

Shame on Paizo for allowing Q Workshop to fail this hard and keeping your customers in the dark and misinformed for over 6 months of late delivery. You should never have allowed them to keep moving the goal post on us, they should've just been honest after the timeframe wasn't going to work and set a reasonable goal rather than the dewy-eyed string along of excuses. If they were honest about their failure many of your customers wouldn't be as mad as they are and I put a lot of this on you guys as the liscence holder, you should never have allowed them to fail and deceive your customers for the last 6 months! Enjoy your con where your customers can roll these dice that will likely be on sale there, while the backers and loyal customers that made this project happen don't have the product that was promised to them over 6 months ago!

Oh great and wise publishers when if ever will we see an AP dedicated to stopping some Rovagugians from awakening the Rough Beast's children?

Years ago we were gifted the Kaiju and we have yet to see them ravage the world when they are awakened from their slumber by mad cultists. I know it's a classic well played trope of RPG's but I would love to see a group of local heroes stumble upon a dark cult disrupting a brutal ceremony and chase that ominous threat down before the cult can raise a truly terrifying, legendary, apocalyptic monster.

No the new FAQ is what prompted the question. Medium armor reduces speed, Mithril armor counts as light for many things and rules iterations, but the last paragraph of Mithril (where it outlines the crunch of Mithril) doesn't call out any speed benefit.

ie Mithril medium armor would not hinder your overland movement but would hinder your tactical speed. Two very different rules functions that use the terminology in question.

The Exchange

Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

Question; What is the speed of a character in a medium suit of Mithril armor?
Relevant text from Core Rulebook (not srd)
Speed: Medium or heavy armor slows the wearer down. The number on Table 6–6 is the character’s speed while wearing the armor. Humans, elves, half-elves, and half- orcs have an unencumbered speed of 30 feet. They use the first column. Dwarves, gnomes, and halflings have an unencumbered speed of 20 feet. They use the second column. Remember, however, that a dwarf’s land speed remains 20 feet even in medium or heavy armor or when carrying a medium or heavy load.

Mithral: Mithral is a very rare silvery, glistening metal that is lighter than steel but just as hard. When worked like steel, it becomes a wonderful material from which to create armor, and is occasionally used for other items as well. Most mithral armors are one category lighter than normal for purposes of movement and other limitations. Heavy armors are treated as medium, and medium armors are treated as light, but light armors are still treated as light. This decrease does not apply to proficiency in wearing the armor. A character wearing mithral full plate must be proficient in wearing heavy armor to avoid adding the armor’s check penalty to all his attack rolls and skill checks that involve moving. Spell failure chances for armors and shields made from mithral are decreased by 10%, maximum Dexterity bonuses are increased by 2, and armor check penalties are decreased by 3 (to a minimum of 0).

Mithril calls out movement, not speed, on the SRD and in the most recent printing of the Core Rulebook.
Each armor type calls out speed, not movement, on the SRD and in the most recent printing of the Core Rulebook.

Therefore we gave ruling that medium Mithril armor still reduces speed, but if a situation would hinder movement of a creature wearing medium armor that penalty would not be enforced.

Are we messing up the RAI vs the RAW?

As much as I respect my Paizo account, so I don't share my PDF's, I actually completely disagree with the philosophy of punishing users whose content get found on file shares. Here are my reasons; (most of which I am certain have been brought up already)
1. Viruses, worms and other cyber trash picked up while internetting can collect and distribute PDF, MP3, MP4, JPG, JPEG and others file types especially while on public access wifi or fake public access wifi.
2. I might sell an old puter or lose an old laptop or get my cyber-deck stolen with my stored files. Many less scrupulous sites do not care what you upload to balance your cred sheet only that it is actual content.
3. I purchased every one of those PDF's, therefore that copy is mine and just like a hard copy I should be allowed to do with it as I please, it's mine after all. I traded you money, for product therefore what I do with it is none of your business.
4. Paizo should contact that user and to unlock their account the user should have to file a cease and desist order to that file sharing site and mail public notice to Paizo. This should be sufficient 'action' on behalf of the user to satisfy Paizo. After all it is that persons property that is flying around the interwebs.

If all else fails that's what moms/dads/siblings/friends, a new PO Box and a rechargeable credit card are for if you absolutely need access to the awesomeness that is most Paizo content and you were an actual victim and not just some jerk-faced mole-man giving stuff away on a file share site.

@OP,
I was not trying to dismiss your desire for more of what you like, but that's the beauty of roleplaying, we make the stories. In the AP line I would think that the romantic interests are mostly female to male and played out with a hero/savior because after all this is fantasy and those are pretty trope. Having a GMed for a mixed race/sexuality/gender table for over 10 years now and occasionally an AP NPC adapts to the player that is interested in pursuing the NPC for any reason. My biggest problem with the NPC's in most AP adventures is the lack of anything but a name/job/sex description leaving me to on-the-spot it if they want to chase this NPC down for any reason.

I think just about every product Paizo has to produce needs to be appealing to the general base of their customers (I would guess %60-%70) the young, straight male and have enough ad-hoc inclusion to keep attracting a larger audience. I think they do a bang up job of keeping the core audience happy and being inclusive enough for those outside the target. There should be more female focused hooks and there could be a little less pulp homage, especially concerning female subjugation as this stuff is usually more of distraction to the campaign, I agree with you.

For my own opinion part 2 of Burnt Offerings has the baseline of sexuality that I use in most of my games; PG-13 teen rompmance. Anything else feels kinda odd/weird discussing around my kitchen table, with kids playing in the background and my best friends of the last 15+ years...

Every time I read "...this is why I stopped buying X..." I think to myself well then this conversation is not for you, please go away. The title of this thread is not "Festivus; the airing of grievances about your product!" Seriously a well worded concise letter about your dislikes or likes would much more appropriate and more apt to be considered.

As for the OP thanks for starting the conversation by blaming the majority, seriously, as SWM I an aware it's my fault and that if only understood that other people like other things them maybe you'd get that mince meat and squash pie you've been pining for. While I think that Paizo is doing great things reaching out to a much broader audience than ever before and being more inclusive than I ever seen in the 20 years I've been playing, I also think it's great that they are being so brash about breaking these barriers by not submitting to the thought police and political correctness. This company names their devils, tells their readers how character summon them, marks all manner or arcane sigils throughout many publications and yeah they portray the females as sexy and proud. Sure a couple of thick girls would be ok just as a handsome, ruggedly bearded fellow would be fine on a cover or two of the product. I just don't think that vilifying the art and story choices that exist so far (less than 100 FTR) is helping your cause.

Besides have you ever thought thats why most plain, simple townsfolk don't really like adventurers? Here they are dressed in their plain, homespun garb and here comes Valeros and Amiri come rolling in and bam! suddenly every boy in town is sharpening swords and all the girls tighten up their blouses. Sure maybe the smith's burly daughter pull's out that axe she's been making and the waifish bard also tunes it up. Sure it bears mention, but if the story is served by the tension between the PC's and the over excited youth of the town, townies with swords and strumped up girls will bear more mention than the fringes.

As charter member of the AP and a Rise GM what I'd love to see instead of new monsters is pre-stated templated monsters.

Ahh this book covers levels 1-4 the RMT covers 1 ogre to 1d4 wolves. A party of 4, 4th levels works over 1 ogre like a kid on a Popsicle, it gets licked. Now if in the back there is a stat-block for an advanced, shrine-blessed ogre or a mythical animal wolf instead of random 1XX creature those stat blocks become suddenly very useful.

Don't get me wrong I love the themed monsters they are kind of fun but sometimes I want a B1 or B2 creature that exists already but I need a specialized one to add flavor.

Anyone else?

Out of the 3 perfect bound books I've bought from my FLGS 2 have fallen apart, losing pages. I am pretty sure it's because of rough handling before I bought the book. Out of the whole run of AP's I have had one lose a few pages after I left it in my car for a few hours in the winter.

Gui_Shih perhaps you are not contacting Paizo in the correct way.

Yes, the other creature is making a grapple check. MM is pretty clear about what you do. You gain an extra maneuver, even if it's a standard action, so he could disarm-trip-grapple (or any series really) when flurrying at a high enough level or at 1st a full attack could be; att-CM or CM-CM. At 8th level he could att-att-CM-CM. In essence yes...

if pinned;
-2 att
an additional =2 to CMB

no dex mod to cmd (you still take dex penalty if you have one)
-4 to AC(which also applies to CMD)
worse for casting

What you missed is that the pinned creature can take no action except to break the pin...

pinned

A pinned creature is tightly bound and can take few actions. A pinned creature cannot move and is denied its Dexterity bonus. A pinned character also takes an additional –4 penalty to his Armor Class. A pinned creature is limited in the actions that it can take. A pinned creature can always attempt to free itself, usually through a combat maneuver check or Escape Artist check. A pinned creature can take verbal and mental actions, but cannot cast any spells that require a somatic or material component. A pinned character who attempts to cast a spell or use a spell-like ability must make a concentration check (DC 10 + grappler's CMB + spell level) or lose the spell. Pinned is a more severe version of grappled, and their effects do not stack.

Casting Spells while Pinned: The only spells which can be cast while grappling or pinned are those without somatic components and whose material components (if any) you have in hand. Even so, you must make a concentration check (DC 10 + the grappler's CMB + the level of the spell you're casting) or lose the spell.

I feel you may have also missed; "you get a +5 circumstance bonus on grapple checks made against the same target in subsequent rounds. Once you are grappling an opponent, a successful check allows you to continue grappling"
