For those of you not aware (which is probably all of you), Owen K.C. Stephens, the tongue-in-cheekly self-titled "wide girthed god of d20 design", has joined Paizo as the developer for the 64 page module line. And no. This is not the position Sean vacated.

Welcome!


Congratulations Owen!


WOOOOOOO!!!!! YES!!!!!! Congrats, Owen!


Nice! Welcome indeed!

Excellent. A deserved position.

And, I don't think anybody is interested in the position Sean would be in when he was vacating... oh, I think I misread that.

I heard that there'll be a module where the only feats any NPC has are ones that are horrifically overpowered. Finally, a module for the hardcore optimizers in your group!

Thanks folks!

So, for most common questions:
Yes, I have been hired by Paizo.
Yes, I am moving to Seattle. End of this month.
Yes, the Design job we've all been talking about is still open. This is a different job, developing the quarterly, 64-page Pathfinder Module line. I am thrilled to have been selected for this job.
No, this doesn't currently change any of my plans with Other Game Companies, though I am obviously going to be busy moving for a bit.

Well...that takes care of the common questions.

What about the UNcommon questions?!?!?!


Wooo! Congrats, Owen!

Yes, the stuffed platypus is likely going into storage.

No, I don't think everyone I know from Oklahoma will fit in the trunk, but we're willing to try.
Of Oklahoma foods, I will most miss Braums.
No, I do not have a device to deliver subliminal messages to my new bosses telling them to give you work.
I'm sure we can find rum just as good in Seattle.
We had it removed to ensure the new owners can get insurance.
Inquisitor or oracle, depending on the campaign and what everyone else is playing.


Congrats now I have more reasons to buy paizo products.


Well now, this is an unexpected but nice to hear bit of news.

Congratulations to you Owen!

Here is hoping that while your days are busy (and we know they will be) that you have plenty of laughs and good times among the new coworkers.

So, that's Common and Uncommon down. How about the Rare questions? Not to mention the Unique question? 8^)

Seattle is a great city, if you don't mind the rain (and the long nights during the winter.)

But there's a great gaming community here, and lots of Conventions too. Great gaming stores (Card Kingdom, Greenlake Games, Games and Gizmos, Uncle's Games, Gamma Ray Games... I'm probably missing a lot). Laid back atmosphere and lots of nature.

Yes. More yes. All the yes you can eat. I have great hopes over this announcement.

This is so... stinkin'... awesome!

WOOHOO! Way to go Owen!

Huzzah!

Congrats, Owen :D Looking forward to seeing your work on the Modules line (argh, this means I'm going to have to resubscribe to them when I can afford to!)

Hopefully you won't mind me using your new position with Paizo as an additional bargaining chip to get GMs to permit * Genius Games products ;)

Congratulations Owen! May your Module Reign be Long and Terrible! (in the classic sense of the word I mean)

very side note - been a while since I've been in a thread with both DaveMage and Arazyr - why'd you change Dave!

More Waysides will be coming, yes. Not immediately, but they are in the queue. Race stuff, a Tome pdf, and some other things are in the works.

Noting that these are all 100% true answers to questions I *have* been asked about this:

Yes I gave a lot of it away, but only after selling most of it for more than $2000.
Pants.
I don't know yet, but I presume I'll find out when I get there.
Only if I am on fire.
500 square feet.
The Fremont troll, the ducks, the underground, the EMP, and Pike Place, but not necessarily in that order.
Godfather's Pizza.
#BaymontCon!
It's just the way the release schedule worked.
The extra volcanoes should make up for it.
A year or two.
Thirteen years.
Not in a million years.

Okay, that was first step. Now untergo the whole company, to release revised Core Rules, where every class is replaced by Genius Guide to Talented *-Stuff. And if someone asks then: "What? Something changed? As far as I know, the rules where like this since the first publishing of Pathfinder! Never been different, where do you have this strange idea from?"
We all will support you with this biggest Day-of-future-path-action in the history of Roleplaying! ;-)

Okay, now seriously, a warm welcome to you!
