Been issued a cease and desist yet?When a company doesn't do their job, fans are there to do it for them, and if the company is as many companies are, they'll slap you across the wrists for trying to take their IP and making it into something they aren't making money off of.
Maybe the board game industry is not as garbage as the video game industry.
I've run this type of special event at several PaizoCons in the past, using various custom scenarios/cards/etc. Paizo is well aware that I am doing this (see the CTO commenting above), and know that I'm not going to try to distribute anything without their permission, and definitely will not be making any money from it. In fact, they've let me write up several blogs about my creations in the past, and do the same for other fan creations.
There is no implication, at all, from me making content like this that Paizo isn't "doing their jobs".
But yes, in general, I've found that the board game industry is generally full of excellent people who are just trying to make people happy while making a living. :)
