* DuelingProducts: ''{{Pathfinder}}'' and ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. ''Pathfinder'' appears to have won against ''D&D'' 4th Edition, beating it in total sales in 2011-2013, but that may change with the release of 5th Edition in 2014.
* 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.
* 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.
