I recall playing a war game against someone at a Con a billion years ago. That dude flipped his dice in a way that they flew through the air and landed generally on 5 and 6 (6 sided dice). No tumbling, more like holding them between finger and thumb and flipping them. A trick. A cheat. It really soured me.

This is why dice need to bump up against a surface in Vegas type dice games. Best if everyone uses a little dice cup--the same for everyone--or a dice tower. Or even a dice program as long as everyone sees it.


I have two characters who could jump into The Confirmation! Lemme know, Simon.


Perc: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14


Hey, I had to balance the compounds.


Vegetarian here, so I'd go for Selenium Iodide, Tantalum Nitrate.


"Nate"?

I'm erbium iodide carbide, then, or something.


Why am I suddenly reminded of "Will It Blend?"


Calistria--you'd think Lamashtu would be the one chiming in.


I'm an atheist, and I do find polytheism, animism, and fantasy settings with a bunch of fallible, not omnipotent gods to be quite fun.

I also like C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, as their protagonists don't hit the God/Eru Iluvatar auto-win button too much (Eagles notwithstanding). :)

Lord of Light--what an amazing, amazing book.

I usually play faithful characters in Pathfinder. Why not? The gods exist in that setting.


Hey all, give me a little bit to finalize that conjurer and get him on the boards. :) -waves-


"Ooh," says Xoricon, picking up the whip. He picks up the arrows as well.

"Ekkie, who were they?" he says to the bulge in the backpack.

And a raccoon once startled me by peering at me upside down, inches from my face, while hanging off my roof.

I may have yelled. Not really a war cry.


You may have to work, but you can have dinner with friends. Go out after work and be social, even if it's just tea/coffee.


Sounds like another game from another company, which I don't play. (hint: involves cards)

No thanks.


I started with First Ed. AD&D (eff D&D!), but then I took a…oh, 22 year break after high school.
I was never at a table with any sort of game mastery. We were kids! (this would be from about age 7 to 17.)

I'm just glad that friends pointed me towards Pathfinder.

I don't count myself as a grognard in any way, as my thinking has never been set in stone, nor did I have any truly rad mechanical game experience from my youth (see above) (yes, used the word 'rad')…so I feel like I finally learned how to play by the rules just a few years ago.

But I do have Dragon #48! 1st Edition Gamma World! Old Ral Partha figurines!


Sorcerers are totally fun; don't let the talk of wizards being supreme get you down. There are non-melee oracle options as well. Cha is great for PFS, as you'll be using Diplomacy aplenty.

Isn't there a risk they would be all…demonically warped, or something?


bottom of the Pit of Gormuz.

I'd totally go to Nidal. Pangolais sounds nice. All quiet and dark. Well, maybe the occasional sound of someone being flayed alive.


Interesting. I would agree with Nefreet, but the fact that Color Spray has no limit on the number of creatures it can affect, I'm not so sure.


Funny, the only groups I can think of that practice polygamy and pedophilia are extremely fundamentalist religious groups, e.g., the FLDS. If you can't see that the slippery slope argument is specious and obnoxious, I am sorry.

Anyhow, religious rights end where the civil rights of others begin. Full stop. You can't beat a child or shoot a person in the head and go "hey, it's my religious right to do so!" Laws are limited in scope by the purview of other laws.


I am not a lawyer (not even a rules lawyer). Well, then I suppose a TST shop could prevent heterosexuals from patronage…but that's enough theorycraft for today.


Huh--I have a 0 XP Cleric of Erastil, one that can de-fatigue rager types and give ranged attacks a boost (and can do ranged attacks decently herself). Count me as interested.

Oh, speaking of Baphomet, I'm wondering if The Satanic Temple* will create a storefront in Indiana now, and only allow gays and nonreligious folk to patronize.

TOZ--pinky swear promise. I took a picture of Graboid leavings in my front yard. I mean, it could have been ants or earthworms, but really, Graboids make the most sense.

*-not really Satanists, but hilarious nonetheless.

Before this story broke, I was so out of it, I thought GenCon was still in Lake Geneva, WI.

Graboids have moved to California, by the way.


Did Divinitus just tell us to synthesize our own drugs? o.0

Who's worked in a lab here? -raises hand-

Even making pharmaceutical grade aspirin to the proper dose isn't trivial. I don't have the lab equipment laying about. The common citizen certainly doesn't. Great smoking FSM. Cannot tell if trolling…Poe's Law in full effect.


Well, there is the governor's track record:

Mike Pence Against Gay Marriage

And the fact that he seeks to change this on the state level and then supports this bill…that isn't too hard, dot-connecting-wise.

For instance, I am ready to open a new game(s), so I have a signup sheet here: Click here

I am going to run 2 games for the Wounded Wisp (levels 1-5), one Core and one Original Play. Feel free to sign up on whichever you prefer. First 6 spots will get in, and there are two Waitlist spots in case someone becomes unavailable between now and when we start (which won't be for a week or so). Some others do large lists and then lottery for who gets in. I thought I would try this approach first.

Hey GM Fuzzfoot, any chance you can get your sign-up listed up at the top with the rest of the GMs? I don't know which gods you have to appease in order to do that, but it could be helpful.


The trait Rough & Ready plus Profession (Chef), and you have yourself a Flynn Rider-bashing frying pan.


Ha, I added Young Monster. :D Fixing it.


bah, I blame Hero Lab. I may have to build a custom race...


Yes, I adjusted those, I think, but STR for Young is still -4. Kwellin is a Rock Gnome.


Ah, I need to add one more trait! Decisions, decisions...


Ok, not much of a backstory, but I have my weakling Gnome Expert who will become a Dirge Bard after leveling up. Young + Gnome = Weak! I took Seeker of Knowledge and need to make Darkvision show up somehow.

DescriptionKwellin possesses unsettling red eyes in a flecked gray face topped with a shock of green and black hair. He is usually poring over a book of Draconic lore, fidgeting with his spirit bells, or fussing over a scrap of parchment related to the gods and the undead. When not nose-deep in a book, he is usually pestering Carlissa Nozzledazzle for more lessons—and then running off to ask Hugnir about the hungry dead.

So that would mean starting as an Expert, I reckon?


Thinking more about a Gnome Dirge Bard with Fell Magic. Duergars are all grim and stuff! :D


I still need some time to think about a character. I know it will be a face character as I like Cha characters, but… Sylvan Sorcerer, Heavens Oracle, Vanilla Summoner, or Dirge Bard…lots to think about. I'm also open to ideas!


I may be totally alone in this, but I would like to see a d6 9 level bard. I've never really believed the bard performance mechanic, and miss the concept of bards from legends as being great healers and enchanters--not melee'ers.


Considering a gnome summoner or sorcerer--that's just a starter idea. The professors are all quite interesting.


neat.


Dot!


Very Grimtooth, that trap.


I'm Hiding--I generally look to see when a GM posts about a game recruitment starting, in one of these threads, usually Gameplay. I also peruse the sheets from time to time. One gets a feel for who is busy and who isn't by their current rosters. This may be repeat info for you by now. :) Cheers!


That's no monk.


Halfling Rogue! Or rather, a Burglar!


Combine the last two posts and you have Ooze Girls. :p

Which reminds me--Cave Druid builds are neat. If only there were a ruling on blindsight.

My wife joined my RPG group back in 2000 because she got tired of being an "RPG widow". She hasn't looked back since. It probably helped that she knew everyone in the gaming group already, and so they all knew how to behave around her.

In my own experience (over three decades), female players are still few and far between. Every group I have been regularly associated with over the years has been male dominated (meaning one or no women at all), and not really by choice.

The women that were asked to participate who we thought might find it enjoyable, 99% of the time they didn't have an interest, whether that was because of the existing gaming stigma at the time, or just that their imaginations didn't steer in the particular direction of RPGs.

Never stopped trying though. Fresh minds and new blood help enrich the experience. I'm hoping once my daughter is old enough, my wife and I can make her one of us.

"...one of us...one of us...one of us..."

There's something interesting in this experience you note: that most women who were invited to play lost interest as they weren't as interested in RPG's, period. That makes me wonder if RPG's are not necessarily the entry point of interest that matters, but an early interest in science fiction, fantasy, and gaming in general. I don't know any statistics offhand, but I would imagine that fewer women take an interest in these areas at an early age, probably due to societal/familiar pressure away from them and towards other things.

Of course, I'm busy telling my preschool daughter stories about dragons and mythology, and she has a (carefully monitored, plastic) sword. Fate: Accelerated may appear on the family table in the future!


Ok, that's truly creepy.

I would say that pragmatically speaking, you won't want the PCs to take on all 100. Some will be mooks, leading to some sort of leaders (why wouldn't one grab power and kill a few people to reserve the rings as a boon, or just as control) as bosses at the end.

Great idea. Creepypasta. Well, not exactly pasta. o.0


Could you synergize this with the Rock Throwing Stone Oracle ability? :)


Congratulations, all!
