I actually do NOT like the pathfinder system (just as I did not like 3E), but I have to say I am impressed with Paizo's products. I find it really disheartening and confusing when I see how much material and stuff they are coming out with and then look at what's coming out under Wizards. I can't imagine that Paizo has a bigger budget or staff. It's mystifying.
I bought the PDFs of their monster manuals just for the art and nostalgia value, and I remember thinking -- why can't wizards do stuff like this? Each monster was on one page. (What a concept.) They are coming out with their third MM soon..
WOTC seems to be developing stuff at a glacial rate compared to these guys.
The new book on Magic Item's Mordenkainen's Magnificent Emporium looks good as does the Fey book, so that is nice, buy next year there are TWO books announced.
I really love the 4E rules, but I feel let down by WOTC in terms of product support. I like being creative; I guess I will just make up my own stuff, but I also like being able to buy cool products.
I'd really kill for skirmish and war game rules for 4E. That would be awesome. I'd love a new world. I'd love a new monster manual, and a book of deities and epic level stuff (give us something to shoot for). I'd love more DM stuff.
What would really be great is something truly surprising and original.
Haven't these guys heard of "publish or perish?"
