I Blame Cosmo for my not realizing that esports was a thing.... When it was exactly the thing I was hoping would happen when I was a kid. 2 million USD prize pot in SMITE?!


Been gaming since I was 2 years old.... And now THIS happens.

I Blame Cosmo that it took almost a year to figure out that my fiance MIGHT have gall bladder disease and need to get it removed... Despite several visits to the doctor and ER. Just got back from a very worried gastroenterologist who encouraged us to get to the ER to get a new echo next time she has issues.

I Blame Cosmo for that horrendous line all physicians tell you "If something's wrong, we'll call you". Cause stuff gets lost in the cracks.

I Blame Cosmo that I got an email at 11PM about selling my Yugioh cards for emergency cash, instead of earlier in the day when I could've got it done. Now I've gotta wait to talk to the guy tomorrow/today (the 10th), and hopefully get them sold by the end of the day.

My impatience and sense of urgency is still not appeased. CURSE YOU COSMOOOOO!!!

Also... Still no contact about my PFRPG goods. You'd think some third party stuff, other game systems, and minis would sweeten the deal and make people take notice gosh darns it!

I Blame Cosmo that I may have to use Ebay for selling my RPG books cringe and hopefully get them sold in a week... Sob Already going to have to use E-Bay for my 2E collection....

So much to sell, so little time. Seems that way anyways....

I Blame Cosmo that I've got to try and sell my Pathfinder collection to try and raise money for career training because I don't have enough friends to spam my GoFundMe campaign to in hopes for $400 worth of pocket change.

Thanks Cosmo. The guys who get paid when I eventually buy eyeglasses, the the guys who get paid when I buy acetaminophen thanks to the eye strain of using the PRD/SRD/Archives thank you too.

Bye bye, Ms Hunt The Pugwamp-eye
Drove my Vauxhall to the foxhole - not exactly sure why
Them good ole boys were drinking Rysky 'n' chai
Saying 'This'll be the day that I die'
And if I do it's Co-o-smo's fault!!

I blame cosmo that reading this makes me hear The Saga Begins by Weird Al Yankovic (my my this here Anakin guy) rather than the originator, American Pie (the song).

Edit: Also, Cosmo is responsible for Yodelling Smurf turning me into a smurfing smurf, and whatever smurfing curse smurfs over anyone when they say smurf.... Now, I'm going to go brush my golden tresses and laugh at all the other bald smufs... No calls.

I blame Cosmo that one of the two sister cats both wants and doesn't want attention. She makes a beeline to me, with her tail and body posture indicating she is in a good mood and happy to see me... she rubs against my legs and makes her usual attention meows... and then when I pet her, she often slouches her back away from my touch, like she has a broken back. Yet she still persists in trying to get petted and will suddenly decide she does like it, arching her back up toward my hand... and then changes her mind again a few seconds later and slouch back down. She purrs the entire time. The vet couldn't find anything physically wrong with her on the last two visits, and she acts eager for petting around people she sees infrequently. If I refuse to pet her, she continues to circle and rub for a minute or two, then stands on her hind legs and stretches her front paws up my jean legs reaching for attention.

What the hell, Cosmo?!

Um, how many cats have you had?

Cause, almost all of mine have done that...

Cats make a game out of playing hard to get. All 9 of my cats have done that at least a few times a week. I Blame Cosmo's Hussy Training For Cats©

... I'm not sure if I should Blame Cosmo for IMVU taking over FurAffinity.... Does Cosmo hate furries? Or is he responsible for furries?

.... Hard Times...

To put a twist on an olde Winston Churchill quote, "In a couple of weeks, I'll have a job, but you will still have no clue."

Try not to let s#$# like that get you down. Lot's of people are callous towards people who are having problems because they are too afraid or unimaginative to put themselves in your shoes. Lots of people get scared because they don't know what they would do in your situation, and it is easier to treat you as totally different then face their own frailty. "Get a job is easier then, "what if that were me?" When most people realize that hard times could happen to them, they change their tune.

... That actually helped quite a bit.

I blame Cosmo that I had a night terror about everything going to $#!^ making me fairly thorny today.

I also blame Cosmo that people seem to fall prey to the media perception on those who hover around the general hobo/bum area.

I Blame Cosmo for mandatory familial obligations.

"My family is a gift from God, which is good because I wouldn't have paid for them." One of the great truths. :D

My brother used to say...'You choose your friends; you get stuck with your family'. I don't know if he got somewhere...but yeah family can bring you down.

For that I Blame Cosmo.

I blame Cosmo that mine has all but ruined my life, and why I am now forced to ask random strangers for charity to fund the only job training I qualify for without a GED that holds any real hope for advancement... Being a security guard. Which, knowing my luck, I am going to get shot in the ass on my first day. A job I need so I can finally get some semblance of a life, take care of my girlfriend, and pay for a GED to get more training to get a better career -_-.

(If anyone's interested in dropping spare change in my proverbial hat, the link to my GoFundMe campaign is in my profile. If anyone feels charitable but can't donate, please share it wherever you can?)

I also blame Cosmo that I do not know how to contact a forum admin to know if it's against the TOS to drop my GoFundMe link in it's own thread in the off-topic section.

Hmm. Just remembered another one.

PC got reincarnated into a troglodyte. Player decided then and there to try and focus as much as he could on his stench aura. After witnessing how good it actually was vs living npcs... The party started reincarnating themselves until they turned into troglodytes, and uh... Well, they roflstomped the capital, and became the new rulers of the kingdom.

I... Still dunno how that worked. Maybe I should stop letting people convince me to come up with custom feats for them, lol. It was pretty hilarious though.

I think you'd like the Khymer. Sentient psionic blood oozes that are the remains of people that were beneath some psionic-charged necromantic-energy filled meteorite crash landed directly on them. Now they survive by being puddles of blood that take over corpses and morphing them during the 8-hour bonding 'ritual' (really its just them filling the corpse out as it were) to how they believe they looked in life.

Check out the Obsidian Apocalypse setting some time. It's got some pretty cool stuff.

P.S. (Edit): If you'd like, I can copypasta the Khymer fluff & mechanics from the PDF.

Playing My (Race) Are Different is kinda easy. Let's be honest, it's usually one of the first things changed. Has anyone altered the Geopolitical aspects of a setting?

Well... I've been working on a Golarion specific campaign in my off time. The ship in Numeria was actually MUCH larger than what it is in normal stuff. Due to the machinations of a particularly curious Technic league member, the entire thing exploded. Technology rained down upon Avistan and northern Garund in a hail of flame and radiation. As such, there are now many areas with reactors, some damaged, some not.

As such, I've altered the borders of sevreral nations, and several more have fallen into total chaos.... It's a Kingdom game using Ultimate Campaign, and the whole point is to, more or less, expand and capture the scattered tech.

Oh, and did I mention the World Wound got its hands on heavy tech weapons, and an unusually curious demon has managed to start replicating the tech? Glabrezu with Gravity Cannons anyone?

I... Don't really run in Golarion outside of published APs. Even when I run pre-published stuff (which is rare in any case), I wind up with a bit of my own home-brew world (designed for writing purposes) bleeding through.

Some of the bigger changes wind up with Orcs, and Dwarves.

Orcs: These guys I do like most and remove the ALWAYS CHAOTIC EVIL right off the bat. However, I've generally made them a nation of their own, heavily influenced by feudal Japan and Han Dynasty China. It's the general "Asian" culture, as it were. A focus on fine arts, fine foods, and warfare. There are a lot of subtle nuances along with this, but that's the general idea. A very heavy caste system, with little wiggle room for advancement, but some tracks lead up.

Dwarves: Viking miners. Whilst I like the whole 'Men of the Earth' aspect of Dwarves, I wanted to pull a bit closer to the Norse origins. Of course, I must have been half-asleep when I came up with this, but rather than go fully with their mythological origins, I decided to go a bit more for the Scandinavian origins... Thus, they're miners in their homeland, and elsewhere, they're the terrors of the high seas.

AH! These recent rash of posts have given me yet another reminder of a forum meme that grinds my gears! Though this is more of a Gamer Meme (should a thread for 'gamer memes' be made?)

When you walk up to a table with a dual-scimitar wielding drow, a halfling sneak focused around stealth and 'saving things from potentially horrible fates', or any other concept that even remotely SOUNDS like it's from some piece of pop culture... And you immediately start hearing cries of "NOOB! CLONE! Play something original!".... Even though you have no idea who the hell they could be talking about.

Seriously now. Not everyone is as up to date, or pre-1990, as you may be. A good example of this is my fiance, whose first D&D game (at the ass-end of 3.5) wound up having the GM make her a more or less Drizzt clone so he can get the party working WITH the drow like they were supposed to. Those who showed up to the table later were like "Oh great, another f$(%ing Drizzt" while she was like "who?" and wound up having a fairly horrible time because of it, despite the explanation to the perpetrators that she had no idea who Drizzt was and the GM told her to build the dual-wielding ranger. She didn't even use scimitars for Gygax's sake! It was a Rapier and Dagger (Main-gauche).

It just... Really... Really grinds my gears when people do that. As if there's an original concept that can be built in Pathfinder that isn't some rehashing frankenstein job of various character's influences on someone's preferences.... I see it a lot on these boards, or did anyways, I don't hang around certain areas as much as I used to.

You even get 'drizzt clone!' cries when you dual scimitars with, like, an aasimar or a human. So much for the archetypal Arabian Dervish.

Dear Ashiel,


Everytime I bring up my tribal cannibal barbarian-classed shaman halfling, knickers get twisted and I have no choice but to facepalm and wind up with a Sokka-sized red mark on my forehead. One of these days I'll get Tarinia to watch that episode...

Also. How would you respond if I said you and Mikaze were my 2 fave people on the boards? Obligatory first place goes to the fiance (Tarinia) of course, but that's love-handel, I mean love-goggles. DAMN YOU PHINEAS AND FERB!

I dunno. As favorited as I get my TL, I like to think we're kinda Fave buddies....

Though I know I happen to like his stuff that I fave, I wonder if some of mine can be said for the same since I seem to make enemies everywhere I go. Being faved is unusual and kind of scarey for me...


Edit: Mikaze... You should write Book Ero more often. I'm sure there's a market for that somewhere. Perhaps lonely librarians would buy it...

As an aside, that was the first time I read that... And that literally made like 90% of my night.

Here's a fun idea.

What do you think of a Kasatha Alchemist with Vestigial Arm discovery (twice) and the Phantom Limb discovery? Silly? Bad-ass? Both?

(I am so designing this guy right now)

What's a Kasatha? :P

Hmm... I like how they wrote a racial archetype for the Ranger that is strictly worse than a Kasatha that goes Sohei Monk and selects bows for his weapon group. Only -2 attack penalty, and they get Manyshot and Rapid Shot twice (if using two bows) whereas the Ranger gets it once.

[Edit] What are your thoughts on using the Kasatha as a race in your games? Do you think you'll ever use one?

Not sure yet. I generally put a fair amount of thought as to which races are available in my campaign (which has 20+ expected races atm).

Perhaps after refluffing. The info on the d20pfsrd is really slim and doesn't really describe much about them beyond their statistics. It's not like I don't already have aliens in my game (there's a race of psionic refugees that fled to the planet the setting exists on because their homeworld was overrun with aberrations such as neothelids and psychothelids and now they're trying to prevent them from taking control of this world as well).

Straight from the Nethys' Magic Mouth

If you've got bestiary 4, they've got a write up in there. Same with People of the Stars, though I don't have that. I believe they're in one of the Iron Gods books too.

Hmmm... Ya know, I'd love to see a Kasatha Tetori grab 4 guys and start strangling them, all at once.... I think I may build my Ninja/Monk grappling assassin, since there was some mechanic somewhere that now gave the benefit of being able to make sure grappled targets don't make a sound... Which was the big problem I was having with said character... No sneaking out of the shadows, grabbing someone, and dragging them back in to silently squeeze the life out of them.
