** When asked on it, Crystal Fraiser clarified and explained that while they decided against it, it was due to the possibility of some people misconstruing Damiel as "all female-to-male transgenders are psychopaths". And that's.... not something you want
--->'''Crystal Frasier''': "''Wes and I had a very long discussion about which iconic to go with (and I really appreciate being a part of that discussion), and touched on Damiel for a while. It would have been nice to have a trans man character after the excellent representation trans women got with Annevia, but we were worried about Damiel's past making it look like we were painting all trans men as sociopaths. In the end, we settled on the shaman because of the religious role of gender-variant people in many different historical cultures.''"

** Alain, the Iconic Cavalier has gotten a ''lot'' of nicknames related to his {{jerkass}}ery. One of the better, and most directly to the point? Sir Douche of Jerkasston.

* FanNickname: Some players took to calling Numeria "TabletopGame/{{Numener|a}}ia", due to the similarities between Golarion's token barbarians-with-hypertech region and Monte Cook's MiddleAges-with-LostTechnology world.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://paizo.com/paizo/blog/v5748dyo5lgcn&page=4?Meet-the-Iconics-Shardra-Geltl#discuss According to Wes Schneider, Paizo's Editor and Chief]], there was a "lengthy discussion" about retconning Damiel, the iconic alchemist, to be a transexual. It was decided that due to Damiel's mental instability that making him the first trans iconic would send the wrong message, and so they instead decided to come up with a whole new iconic to give more positive representation; hence Shardra.

* ManualMisprint: Pathfinder splatbooks have their own version of this problem, usually as a result of [[TooManyCooks multiple design teams]] and [[PoorCommunicationKills lack of correspondence.]] It's not uncommon for an early chapter to mention a feat or spell that was later renamed or dropped entirely.
