And thanks for the compliment, but I've really come to the same conclusions and mostly just stopped bothering to reply to you.

The US could meet all of our energy needs off of renewable resources. Maybe with a little Nuclear thrown in.

We don't because those sources are much harder to form one giant monopoly around that can bribe the living hell out of our political system which (appeals to the free market or not) decides 99% of how we're getting our energy.

I'd have it force another grapple check to maintain as they're pulled away from their prey (with no riders allowed like constrict) . if they succeed you're going with them.

Looking for the full letter but...from the UK telegraph

The motion calls for “reduced cheering or unnecessary loud noises on conference floor, including whooping and clapping” and warns of “consequences for those who ignore this requirement”. In the past, NUS events have banned clapping on the grounds that it might “trigger anxiety”.

which is a vastly different rationale.

Is it the 3rd level addition to finesse training that brings the 1.5*Dex to damage online?

eyup. So if you're a dex buld that's a pretty solid dip. A rather large dip but very worth it.

Good idea. As it stands you're looking for nothing to do during the multi table slot if you've played the scenario before.

Indeed I do, but not because of where or how it was written.

The only core book is the CRB.

Its more the fact that a 750 gp wand of protection from evil lets you burn down 16 and a half orphanages without being evil.

Although anyone discounting the MTT quote should also be discounting Horror Adventures quote that Evil spells are Evil acts, since they were written the same way.

Melee tactic's toolbox quoted earlier.
The one where it says that you threaten and provide flanking while using total defend, an action that prevents you from making AoOs.

ahh that is a pretty good piece of evidence then.

Koi Eokei wrote:
It's not a hard track to follow.

It's not a sure path to follow either. The rules often lend themselves to arguments for both sides. Just because you can reasonable and rationally follow a sensible line of logic from point A to point C does not mean that C is right. Sometimes you can follow a sensible line of logic from point T to point Not C.

I have no idea what toolbox you're talking about.

Shadow Lodge

On the one hand, you can attack into that square.. on your turn

On the other hand, you can't attack into that square because you can't make Aoos, and since flanking usually only matters on someone elses turn the functional answer is no... unless they delay and swing at them during your turn ?

As much as I am lothe to bring real-life politics into this, or engage in a Godwin arguement, I would like to point out that yes, killing people in cold blood is wrong. In WW2, we captured nazi prisoners of war. Did we just summarily execute them? No. Ever hear of the Nuremberg trials? We gave Nazi WAR CRIMINALS a fair shake to see if their horrendous actions were bad enough to warrant killing them. Some were sentenced to as little as 10 years and some were even acquitted.

Which is a very good argument for the chaotic good point of view that a summary ganking would be true justice and law is in the way of that.

Lawful is not good. Lawful good is not more good than the other goods.

I'm not even convinced it can get enough Republican votes to pass. There are folks in the party who worry about this new plan not being deficit neutral, or how exactly you can compensate for the massive tax cut with a nebulous hope for "job growth".

Deficit neutral is republican code for "spends money on poor people"

BNW - learn the basics in those programs and it will open doors to entry level jobs where you can then upskill. It will certainly give you s better shot than coming straight out of the mine with no clerical skills.

Your unevidenced assertion is up against decades of evidence. Employers have little interest in hiring people with no experience in the field, triply so if they have gaps in the resume.

It is both damaging and insulting to people out of work to say that their problems would be fixed by a 6 week computer familiarity course. You are vastly underestimating the difficulty of the transition you want people to make. A 40 year old miner is looking for the same job as a 20 something just out of college who could be with the company longer, is more trainable, has a greater return on said training, and a more updated skillset.

The problem is systemic. Solving it is not the miners job, responsibility, or fault.

Are you ALL field commissions?!?!? Get out there, get back to the basics. I want to know what these people are doing.

So the new Trump/GOP tax plan is out and surprise surprise it kicks ass for Trump and sucks for the average Joe. What moves do the democrats have to compromise/block the latest trickle down travesty?

None. Senate republicans will go full nuclear, pass it, and then close the floodgates behind them by requiring a 75 vote majority for more rule changes on their way out.

Except no one is preventing people from porting characters. Unless that one table is the only one being run that day, you're still perfectly able to port your characters in. You just may be turned away from one that is deemed inappropriate.

Or you've played the other game, or it's out of tier for you, or the other table is full.

It is within the charter of Venture Officers running an event to refuse to seat players that they feel are being disruptive. If a VO feels that someone wanting to play a smurf* is being disruptive, they can decline to seat the player

Replace smurf with any legal character that some people think is problematic and you have a backdoor ban at the whim of the VOs. The artifical level cap looks kinda hinky in theory but workable in practice (ie, you do what toz suggested and offer to run the game again) but that line of reasoning is oh hell no.

Just because you can play a scenario doesn't mean you should or that others will be happy if you do.

you could say the same thing about an undead themed character, or a paladin. Or pet class when someone doesn't like them. People have a lot of objections to other peoples characters.

There are good reasons for playing a 5 in a 1-5. You need to get to 6 and you keep getting stuck in the 1-5 rut. Its the perfect scenario for your character. Its part 3 of the two parter you've done.

I'm a little skeptical of telling someone they can't play a legal character without knowing that they're going to try to be disruptive. But with that said, if you are playing out of tier it can be easy to ruin everyones night. A healer can probably stand in the back and buff and no ones going to complain that they're alive and totally shredding things. A barbarian would have a harder time dialing back, maybe punch the dungeon to death because their axe is in the shop?

A last point on the time factor. Miners here get rosters of one on one off (very rare) or two on one off (most common). So there's an entire seven day cycle every three weeks for pursuing alternate skills.

No. There isn't. it is absolute malarky , victim blaming, and evidence that people trying to push for policy are completely out of touch with reality. Do you know what you do after two two hour weeks of hard work? You SLEEP. You see your wife, you see your kids. That's not weakness, its humanity.

Quote:
At the very least, use that time to upskill in computer program use for office applications. Excel, word, publisher. Those three alone can land you jobs

Calling that #($*#)($$* would be an insult to perfectly good organic fertilizer. Those are minimum requirements for a job, not actual job skills. it's like having a drivers license, its pretty much what you expect any adult to have. It doesn't get you a job. Experience in a relevant field gets you a job.

Seriously. You're trying to tell coal miners that they're lazy? THATS the problem? How the hell are you going to try to tell them that they can't comprehend facts, reason, evidence, and sense and then hypocritically mire yourself so deeply in a counterfactual narrative that the coal miners you're insulting couldn't find you down there?

Why on earth should anyone believe that you can figure out global warming if you can't figure out that word processing isn't a career anymore and that mining coal for two weeks straight isn't exactly conducive to higher education.

The problems are the corporations that convince these people to vote against their own interest and people like you that make that so. incredibly. easy.

In reference to solar jobs as a possible new source of jobs, while I agree that would be great, there are rather significant segments of the local population who are vehemently opposed to all solar developments due to their enmity to anything that seems to compete with coal.

because the coal companies keep fueling (budumpbump) the faux outrage on faux news. It's not an accident that people feel that way, its a deliberate smear and misinformation campaign.

Up to the DM. I'd give a lot more lattitude with a creature that can understand you. That's kind of steep for a feat though.

Which is true, but is also no different to the rest of the workforce

The rest of the workforce has 20 years of more relevant employment or a recent degree more applicable than miner and fewer back problems.

Have you ever tried sending out resumes when your CV looks nothing like the job you have to apply to? Prison time would be better for your employment prospects. (Seriously, my previous jobs were wolf belly rubber, bat catcher, chainsaw operator and human speed bump. Office jobs don't even look at my resume)

We are hitting a post worker economy. Watsons going to kick it into overdrive. We need to get a social safety net up and running before you have megacorps with terminator armies and no need of any other humans.
