Isn't it. You definitely should try fighting in a corset, it is a wild experience. Easy to see why someone could pass out in one if they don't think to or want to pant and need to exert themselves climbing a lot of stairs quickly or something similar like fighting.
Ok I was posing in a corset and dress with a rapier and I got kind of playful and started shadow dueling with it. I observed two things. That the corset keeps your chest from expanding making it impossible to draw full deep breaths and also that if you ever tried to swashbuckle in one you end up panting like a dog... Which is neither ladylike OR intimidating. So much for the outfit I always pictured myself in when playing such games. Now I have to dream up something far more practical.

I am descended from Olympic skiers and I have always wanted to ski in the middle of summer... Maybe I can convince you to crank it to blizzard in July just to cross that off my bucket list.
Take it from my resident lovable munchkin, the best option is always 1. But then power gamers leave nothing to chance.

Is that where I left that? It is supposed to follow me...
I always give three options.
There are a few who prefer rolled stats. Certain people tend to be afraid of rolling poorly and stay away from rolls. But in the end everyone has fun. Rolled in order is like opening a surprise gift sometimes you get a brand new game console other times you get socks. But if getting socks doesn't send you into a RAGE of "why can't I be the best" and you can have fun with the poor rolls as much as you can with the awesome ones then this IS the best method for you.
Incidentally, I have just drunk four cans of Dr. Pepper and am practically bouncing off the walls, but what I want to know is why it describes itself as a 'fruit flavour beverage' on the side. I do not believe that any fruit exists that tastes remotely similar to Dr. Pepper.
Dr Pepper's flavor is a blend of fruit syrups giving it a unique flavor.
Should we start a "we love Freehold DM" fan club?
I did have a weird and impossible dream about Freehold.
See if you can guess which part or parts of that are impossible.

I don't know.. Is your love interest a young Sandra Bullock?:)
Sorry I listen to a show that features weird news...
Like the CIA accidentally leaving an explosive device on a school bus then returning it to the school. Or the science report that salmon in Seattle is laced with cocaine and anti depressants. Or the new breakthrough were scientists successfully created a kale and cannabis cross breed.

Sorry if I confused anyone. I didn't know there were in game benefits economic or not to controlling an area. Other MMOs typically just have bragging rights only to controlling an area.

Also I totally agree that we are NOT a monolith. One of my bad experiences at a game table was from the only other girl at the table... so yeah we aren't ALL the same at all.
Edit: I mean to say she was ALL "Kill everyone! Rarrrr!!!" even to the point of killing important NPCs... or even my character when I spoke up. Where I prefer roleplay in front of my numbers.

This and one step further; ENFORCE the rules against harassment. To many just turn a blind eye even on the rare time they do believe her.

Because we've evolved beyond our primal instincts. We're also naturally ingrained to mount every female we find attractive whether they want it or not, but it doesn't make it a good idea.
Did you just somehow relate people's habit of evaluating things on surface appearances... With rape!?
It isn't just consumerism. Humans are trained all their life to evaluate everything based on appearances so why not use that to our advantage? Want to be seen as sporty, wear sporty clothes, drive a sporty car, and talk with sporty slang and everyone will think how amazingly sporty you are whether you play sports or not.
I am reminded of a conversation I had with Mr Perfect after being invited to Munchkin GMs friend's 1st edition Challenge the gods game.
Mr Perfect: "You need to remake your character... she is full of drama and angst; and hasn't got enough raw power"
As usual Mr Perfect was right. My munchkinized power wizard was no stronger than the rest of them. And in the opening fight I died twice. I quickly learned to fight as one with the rest of them. Covering any weakness they show and letting them shield mine. This WASN'T the game to be a drama queen in. I would have gotten us all killed.
When a group engages in PvP they ramp the adventure difficulty up geometrically. In a game like Pathfinder where combat balance is calculated all the way down to the value of your combat gear it isn't wise to make things easy for the group's enemies. So IF you are going to be doing PvP make absolutely sure the GM is on the same page and has lowered the difficulty to easy first or it may well be your last adventure.
Yeah some of my younger workers have the same attitude (that the weekly schedule is merely a suggestion). Was there a thing for a certain group of parents to do everything they could to shelter their children from responsibility? If so they weren't doing their kids any favors as nobody is going to promote a person who can't be bothered to show up as scheduled. That is if they don't just fire them outright. I wonder if that is a part of the statistic showing a large number of children living at home after school is finished.
Memory is the first thing to go...THACO was from 2nd edition.
My dad has some good pictures of hail after it has fallen but then that's his job. I was only caught in a hail storm twice in my life once was during cheer practice and the pieces were small but they stung when they hit us. The other time I was driving north of Chicago and I was worried they would smash my windows so I pulled over. But that video is way worse then anything I have seen.
Is it weird places we have slept today?
-Slept standing up at work (hey I was working like 80+ hours that week)

Arise unfortunately WASN'T good enough. Arise was supposed to be a 6 episode OVA but failed to get enough funding to make more than 4 episodes. Talk was that the setting of GitS was dead and soon to be buried. Then out of the blue the American's start a live action movie project and suddenly funding is restored Arise got completed as a TV show instead of an OVA and the setting is once again on people's minds. THIS is why it is important that the live action movie succeed because interest in IT is what is keeping the entire setting alive right now. If a major actress like ScarJo can do the role justice (and I believe she is one of the best people out there who CAN... certainly not Ming Na who we have seen in Agents of SHIELD.) In fact if ANYONE can elevate this production from obscurity it is Scarlett Johansson.
BUT it's whitewashing! So what. I would rather the better actor or actress fill a role than the one with the approved race. Just look at what amazing work Samuel Jackson did as Nick Fury (a white part played by a black actor).
