    D&D 5E My Five Favorite Things From Strixhaven: Curriculum of Chaos

    Sure, I thought so at the time anyway, but a bunch of concussions and damage that are going to catch up to me in 15 years (beyond the issues I already face) probably isnt going to balance out in a positive way in the long run. :)

    Yeah I'll never go back to an office personally. There isnt a single thing I havent been able to do remote.

    I've played many years of football, and trained many years in boxing. Concussions, broken bones, joint damage. I have a good idea what they gain. ;)

    Probably. I'm in IT, and have been remote for a long time, but I acknowledge that it's not for everyone.

    I dont know how friendly they are to Remote Workers, but I would imagine that when Paizo got off the ground, it wasnt really a thing.

    Yeah, the cost of living in many places, is out of control. You absolutely will not own a home in Vancouver, unless you are making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Tear downs sell for a million.

    I ran through a few sites looking up prices as part of this discussion, and that 3x rent question came up on several sites, which just kind of seals it for me. Its just too expensive, or you dont make enough.

    This is the breakdown I'm looking at. So, to put it plain. Can you work, live, own a home, raise a family, working as an educated professional, within the RPG space? If Wizards pays double (Marks Tweets) than Paizo, I have to assume, that the answer is no, at least not on a single income...

    lol thats optimistic way to look at it. The pessimist says 'we are a foolish species'. :D

    I hear you, thats again why I ran to the google machine and asked. ;) I pay a CRAPTON of taxes. I live in what was previously an affordable area. I live on a single stable income. I am better off than most. If $72K American in Seattle is too high, but $50K Canadian is 'average' then...I mean...

    Well thats why I provided the link. So folks would see where perhaps things are coming from. I dont live there, but the Twitter thread seems to be saying 'we cannot afford to work here and live'. So the question was why, what are the values being assumed? I dont believe its a fair assumption...

    (A minor note) A quick google search brings up $72K to live comfortably. https://seattlerefined.com/lifestyle/you-need-to-make-72092-a-year-to-live-comfortably-in-seattle I would expect, people hired to professionally write, have an education. If you cannot pay people with a 4 year degree...

    Reading that whole tweet thread, it certainly seems a few things are clear. Some combination of the following. RPG's do not make enough money to live on, in Seattle. Paizo does not pay remotely enough. Writing RPG's is in no way a career path if you want things like a car, house, family. I...
