We are actively working on a subscription model and it *should* be available VERY soon (as in, days or weeks?). However, I don't *think* we're serving any major popups unless you consider the text-based informational things I send now and then (sometimes sales, sometimes info about other SRDs coming live etc.)

Another option is pf2.d20pfsrd.com. I'm working constantly towards improving usability and real-world functionality, and always appreciate suggestions or ideas on how to make it easier to use. You can reach me anytime at jreyst@gmail.com.

Yes, clearly, if you prefer ONLY Golarion-content, or ONLY PFS-legal content, then AoN is probably your better option. d20pfsrd.com is probably better suited to those who are open to 3rd Party content, or those who run their own home campaigns, or those who want a complete rules reference site. To each their own, but d20pfsrd.com leans more towards players and GMs who run custom home campaigns and likely in their own campaign settings, and those who like to look at content OTHER than just that from the primary publisher (meaning, open to other publishers content.)

Thanks everyone for continuing to support d20pfsrd.com and for those who prefer AoN, to each their own! I hope you are enjoying gaming is the main goal, and I suspect you are!

This isn't entirely accurate. AoN also includes affiliate links to Amazon.com, just as d20pfsrd.com does, which means he earns affiliate income from sales of Paizo books you buy on Amazon after clicking there.

Paizo decided after d20pfsrd.com opening opengamingstore.com, we were no longer allowed to use the Community Use Policy.

I use Google Adsense for the banners that are not products in my store or banners for various 3PP promoting Kickstarters or other projects/products. Google is very good at targeting and I am able to block advertisers based on the URL of the banner in question. For instance, if the banner goes to http://www.girlsfight.com I enter that into the block category. I have hundreds of advertisers like this I've manually entered into the block list but sometimes the advertisers are tricky and have redirects or have the same content on another URL that they begin serving after they detect the first one is blocked. In any event, I haven't seen the ad in question but if you do again, you should be able to right-click on it and get the URL. Feel free to email that to me at jreyst@gmail.com and I'll block it asap.

Sorry about the inconvenience though!

Edit I think I figured out the URL and it and several of it's variants are now added to the block list. Please feel free to email me or direct message me here if you see any more!

Right now StarfinderSRD.com is open ONLY to editors, which, happily enough, is open to anyone who actually wants to help get the site ready for release. If you would like to help work on getting the site ready, please email me at jreyst@gmail.com with subject "Volunteer to edit StarfinderSRD.com"!

The art may have suffered somewhat from compression. I asked that the filesize be kept as small as possible but that may have inadvertently meant that some of the art doesn't look as good as it otherwise might have. We'll be adding a higher-resolution option and POD option shortly and previous purchasers will be able to add the higher res PDF at no extra charge.

Tagging and more advanced filtering are in the planning stages. A developer has been contracted to convert d20pfsrd.com to Wordpress from Google Sites and filtering such as "Show me only Paizo content" or "Show me only PFS Approved content" or "Show me only Core Rulebook content" or "Show me everything" or "Show me all Paizo, Rite Publishing, and Rogue Genius Games content" are planned.

Also, selective ad blocking is planned, based on subscriber level. That is, you don't have to subscribe at all and the site remains essentially as it is now for you. However, if you subscribe at the lowest (free) level, you will be able to log in and set preferences. If you subscribe at the next level you can say "I don't want to see ads for stuff in the Open Gaming Store". If you subscribe at the next higher level you can say "I don't want to see ANY ads". All of this is custom coding though and so a Kickstarter is planned around February or March to attempt to cover development costs and the maintenance $ that will now be required (because hosting a massive Wordpress site is not FREE like hosting on Google Sites is.)

Thanks for the positive comments Oceanshieldwolf and CampinCarl9127. As previously stated, we are not allowed to use or reference things that are NOT Open Game Content, which includes place names, people names, unique god names, and similar items. In all cases we strive to stick as close to the original intent when we're required to omit a certain name.

In all cases we prefer not to think of anything as "butchered" but to each their own. If you prefer the PRD or AON, go to town. You are not required to like or use d20pfsrd.com. I've said this previously but I'll say it again, d20pfsrd.com is more geared towards those who don't REQUIRE god names and Golarion-specific content, such as those who run their own custom campaign worlds, or whom are not terribly bothered by the occasional lack of a god name (or similar). Same with 3rd Party Content. If that's not your cup of tea then a) you don't have to use it even if you DO use d20pfsrd.com, and b) you are more than free to simply not use d20pfsrd.com at all.

As someone else previously stated to me while visiting at Gen Con, they appreciate that d20pfsrd.com is a 100% complete rules reference resource, whereas AON isn't (it misses core rulebook main rules content) and also, d20pfsrd.com is organized by subject not by book (as the PRD is.)

Lastly, I strive to be as up-to-date as possible and I think I have almost everything currently available except anything that has been out on store shelves less than 2 weeks. Oh and if you ever have an issue, you can feel free to either email me directly at jreyst@gmail.com or tag me on Facebook. I try to respond to all such contacts.

While I think it's a good idea, it's not likely going to happen on d20pfsrd.com just because of the additional work involved in calling out the differences etc. If you like the existing rules (pre-errata) you could always take a screenshot of a page prior to the rules change, or simply continue using the pre-errata'd original source material.

Sorry if I'm making you guys reiterate things but what are the general goals of the book? From what I've gathered the mission is to enable play in space, which includes new races, feats and items that facilitate spacefaring campaigns and spacefaring vehicles. Is the product limited to those parameters?
Bodhizen wrote:
No, but I think I'll let John field that question if he wants to reveal more.

The general goals are to enable Pathfinder in space, not specifically far future, near future or hard sci-fi. This is geared towards fantasy characters, on fantasy-themed ships, in space. There may be additional supplements in the future that add new options for mecha, or mass fleet battles, or any of a wide number of other such themes but this is the baseline product just to get things started and to establish a new product line for d20pfsrd.com Publishing.

Thanks Peter for fielding these questions.

I contacted Legendary at the outset of this project to see where we could collaborate but to be honest they're so busy with their own product releases they didn't have time to consider coordination. I'll reach out again as development continues to see what/where we could link into each other. Even if it's as basic as we say something like "Planet X from the Legendary Planet AP is located in sector 1100112 of quadrant Mephistopheles and "Porphyra from Purple Duck Games is located in sector 90012 of quadrant Asmodeus." Then we could direct buyers of this product to the referenced product for full details. Unfortunately, without permission from Legendary Games we can't reference their IP. However, with Porphyra, that's a 100% OGL term so we could theoretically place it on a galactic star map etc.

Ok a bit of a ramble but that's where we're at now in regards to collaborations or coordination.

I compared the wording carefully between the CRB version, the Ultimate Equipment version, and the wording on d20pfsrd.com. The only difference was that I inserted a line break between the bit about wearing it on your forearm and the next sentence and then italicizing the sentence about wearing it on your forearm. I removed the line break and italics from the first sentence now. I hope that makes it less confusing (not sure how it was confusing in the first place but I really couldn't care less so there you have it lol)

I sometimes make an effort to call out "fluff" text from "crunch" text in order to make reading text easier. For instance, sometimes a spell is presented as:

common format:

You wave your arms in the air like you just don't care as a blast of brilliant colors erupts before you. All sighted creatures within 20 ft. of you must make a Ref save or become dazzled.

And so I do this:

my format:

You wave your arms in the air like you just don't care as a blast of brilliant colors erupts before you.
All sighted creatures within 20 ft. of you must make a Ref save or become dazzled.

In my experience, the second format is easier to read and quicker to understand what the spell actually does. Some may not like it, while others may. I'm gambling more people appreciate the change than don't. Who knows? Maybe I'm wrong.

As for the comments about purpose/presentation of the site in general, yes, I purposely arrange content on the site to be a general purpose reference site and don't separate content by book. That, to me, would make using it as a general resource far, far harder because you have to know ahead of time what book holds what content. For some that's ideal (having it arranged by book) whereas for others, not so much. Also, I don't play PFS and rarely run published campaign settings. That's why I don't care that the words "Golarion" "Cheliax" etc. are not allowed to be used on the site. My target audience is more the people who run their own campaign settings, or who also don't care so much about the lack of Golarion references. My thinking is that that audience is far, far larger than the PFS crowd, or the crowd who demands the Golarion references. Thus far I think I've been correct in my assumptions based on traffic etc.

So if your primary Pathfinder playing is PFS or strictly Golarion you will find a lot of value in AoN and the PRD. If your primary Pathfinder is your own campaign setting (or your GMs) then I think you'll probably find greater value in d20pfsrd.com. However, I think it's fair to say that AoN, the PRD, and d20pfsrd.com, all present value to Pathfinder players and there's no requirement that you choose just one. Use whatever suits you best. If you aren't getting everything you need from that one, try another one. Regardless of whatever online, digital format you use however, be sure to continue to support Paizo by buying stuff from them so they can continue making the game we love to play.
