Except that with posters like thejeff, bignorsewolf, and now, apparently, you Kryzbyn, Paizo is not conservative friendly. At. All. The staff is not conservative friendly, and neither are the majority of the posters.
I really do not believe you are qualified to decide that men are not qualified to assist in adding diversity. In fact, that smacks of sexism, and that is offensive.

Couple of sessions ago our oracle was out taking care of personal business and so missed the session. I played him and my gnome sorc. He's playing a halfling oracle with the blindness thing. So we're in this lumbermill and we get into a fight. Our paladin gets the hairbrained idea to burn the mill and shouts it out loud. So far the oracle has done every dumb thing the paladin has suggested, so I figured, "Ok, at least I know what to do now..." and I fire the light x-bow at the lantern on the wall.
DM asked for a conf roll
DM says "Do that again...I dare you..."
Cue massive fire!
So now the pally is cheering, the fetchling rogue is looking for a window to dive out of, and my gnome sorc is giggling like a loon.
Pally says "Uh oh, too much fire"
Sorc said "whatnoproblemIcanfixthis!!!!!"
Now everyone is blind because I thought it would be even funnier to do the fireworks effect. But the fire did go out so that's good...
And here I thought we might find your plot being tended to by Lillian Voss, waiting for the Val'kyr to come by...
Also, can you peeps differentiate between accepting and non without going "liberal" and "conservative". I'm conservative, and I really don't care who puts what where and why since it's just none of my business.

To put it a different way...I still hide out in my darkened apartment every Fourth of July because the fireworks sometimes sound to much like artillery in the distance, small arms fire up close and mortar fire. It aint fun. And it's supposed to be my holiday.

Hey GM! Helgoron PM'd me and said he wanted to sell all his loot and give me the gold. Yeah...that's it!
If you are using a phone for PDF's and such, please turn it to silent. Nothing worse than hearing beepBOOPboopbeepBEEPboopboopboopBEEPBEEP all day...
Unfortunately due to some people over in OTD, Conservatives of all stripes are completely unwelcome and would do well to not give their opinion at all. Especially due to communist goblins, rabid wolves and gambling thugs not to mention employees bullying posters. I only come to Paizo for online pbp games and occasionally browsing the advice columns, . Otherwise, I avoid Paizo like the plague.

The only thing I truly cringed at were C-3P0's horrible puns throughout the movie.
Ok, so I'm GM-ing this adventure, and my intrepid party is exploring a cave system near a swamp. This was early on 3.0, when a water hazard could stop a party dead in its tracks. So the group is standing by this pool of water, looking at it and wondering how to cross w/o drowning.
Our Bard (who dumped int) is holding the torch, and he goes near the water for a closer look. He tells me:
"I'm lowering the torch to the water so I can see how deep it is."
I look at him with *that* look and ask: "Are you really dipping your burning torch into the water? It'ss get put out!"
Straight-faced as ever he looks back at me and says:
"Nuh-uh...I'm holding it by the other end..."

You can't have inclusiveness when Paizo Staff are bullying posters into silence.
Some folks just like to get together and roll some dice among friends. To get more to the point, our group was playing an AP when we were requested by a guy to deliver a letter to another guy in town. We took the letter to the recipient, gave him the letter, received our pay and went on our way. Did we know it was a love letter? No, because we didn't open the envelope and read other people's mail. Our DM made particular mention that we were helping a gay couple. Our reply: "So? Did we get paid? If so that's all that matters."
I know this must seem outrageous that some people just don't want to pry into other people's business the same way you want to, but you'll just have to learn to deal with it. Maybe seek therapy or something if it's too bothersome.
I'm sorry...but it really isn't a terrible strategy. It's just one that you don't like.
WHAT???? Seriously Lamontius, you're straying dangerously close to Saturday Morning cartoon villany here...Should we start calling you Magneto or something?
I had a long dissertation regarding the last of that post, but seriously, stop telling people they are having BADRONGFUN simply because they don't play the same way you do.
Our GM solved this by allowing a certain number of "Logical Extension" rolls from our genius players. They roll a straight Int check and he tells them some valuable info that they would reasonably be able to infer. (Kinda like Sherlock Holmes)
My DM encountered this once. His reply was:
"Awesome! All three assassins are now level 20 and retired. Now roll up a new character!"
No snark, no anger, just really really cheerful response which I thought was hilarious.

What happens when my concept is that I am the best swordsman in the world? Most people who play games are ordinary people, so what is wrong with wanting your character to be something special? Even in real life there are plenty of examples of people who dedicate their lives to one thing at the expense of everything else. A person who is so hung up on getting into medical school that they concentrate all their time on getting good grades, or any professional athlete are both examples of this.
We tried that on our DM once. He replied "Cool! That character is level 20 and has retired. Now roll a new character!"
I use a blend of form and function. I usually have an idea of what I want to play, then start asking myself questions after I make a couple of rolls on the background tables in the Mythic book
uh oh...incoming attacks. I can dodge this...It's just a jump to the left

What if both grapplers were succubi? What if they were under the effects of a Grease spell? We need more details to make a definitive ruling.
If it were two succubi then I would rule that anyone in visual range must save versus Hypnotic Pattern. Luscious gyrating hypnotic patterns....
Thanks to extensive research on the internet I've discovered that, among many, many other things, being grappled and/or pinned can be an act of passion, as can pinning another...erm...creature. It could be suggested by some that such acts are a perversion, only enjoyed by the sick and morally reprehensible. Does the succubus qualify on that score?
For some reason, when you typed that, the first thing I thought of was Commandant Lassard from the Police Academy movies...specifically, the scene where he is standing at the podium...lol

A fellow PC calling himself an alchemist(tengu ninja) killed an NPC in mid speech as he was showing us on a map where to go for our quest. The other members of the group, me (aasimar ocacle) and the other guy (oread druid) were not giving the chance to stop him. The NPC was dead before I could heal him. The player controlling the tengu ninja was drunk and laughing through it all. We told him that was the wrong thing to do. We were conflicted with what to do and everyone took off without waiting for the group. We ended game hiding out in the nearby forest away from town. The GM said there was likely to be a bounty, and trial once we were captured. Seeing that people saw us earlier as newcomers and later, townsfolk viewed us fleeing from town, I'm think I need to turn myself in. Accept whatever small town justice comes my way and roll up another character. I doubt the "alchemist" will get out of this once captured, he's level 1. Knowing some insight about our GM, I think we will all have to roll up new characters. Any thoughts on any of this?
Boot the lush. Redact everything that happened as a Patrick Duffy/Bobby Ewing event.

So, you claw and do damage. Then you claw, and do damage and the target falls down. Then you nomnomnomnomnomnomnom until you are full. I'd say it's a good day to be that monster.
The GM had an opportunity with my last character, something like this: We were fighting two gricks. We were fighting next to a pool of water that the gricks swam out of to attack us. I was dropped to negative hit points. The DM took pity on me and had the grick turn on the paladin. I called foul. That grick should have grabbed me and swam to the bottom of the pool to eat in peace. Anyone who has ever had a pet knows that food comes first. Winning fights don't matter if you're still hungry or dead at the end. When the opportunity to get away with food presents itself, animal intelligence and instinct take over and that animal will try to make off with the meal.
Heh heh heh. Wizard talk big. Wizard threaten Brox with turn to toad spell. Wizard not able to read spell no more. Now Brox have his turn. Mebbe wizard give Brox protection golds. Brox take good care of wizard.
See dat cleric over dere? Brox make contribo..conctr..gift of gold for you with dat guy. Say curses and tell what do. Mebbe dat guy take away curses. Mebbe dat guy ask for protection golds too. Brox not able to see future. Brox is just pawn of fate.
Ash, this really isn't necessary. Back-handed insults at the GM just because your suggestion was politely refused is no reason to act that way.
@OP: Take it step by step and see what happens. Try the remove curse first. See if it works. If not there has to be something else that will help. Maybe go see an oracle to find out how to lift the curse. Maybe this is a lead-in to another adventure. Or the next leg in your current adventure.
This is where we run into my pet peeve.
The fighter 2 (for the feats dip)/rogue1 (for the stealth/traps/w-e dip)/sorc 1 (for the bloodlines dip)/ cleric of (Fill in the blank with optimized domain) (for whatever domain bonuses dip) with no real background that explains any of it except "Well, one day he just decided to become a rogue/sorcerer/cleric/pick next class with desireable ability". And I *have* seen it. More than once. When questioned about it the player says "Dude, that's my roleplay. That's it. I just decided to."
It doesn't just break ther verisimilitude of the game, I beats it about the head and neck, stabs it in the kindeys a bunch of times, then goes and slaughters its family as well. Then urinates on the whole mess for spite.

I love coming to this page and seeing what's going on. Especially when I see stuff like:
OP: I wanna play <pick any> class. I have an idea that the role play will be <fill in the blank!>
Next Poster: You should play <pick a diametrically opposite class> rewritten with a dip in <this random class> and one more in <that random class>
OP: Well, ok I guess...I was thinking of using <this weapon> (slashing) because it fits the roleplay!
Additional Poster: You should totally not use <this weapon> (1h/slashing) when <that weapon> (2h/bludgeoning) is far superior dude!
I half expect to pop in here once and see a guy talking about wanting to play a fighter and get advice that he should really be playing a Martial/Armored/Monk/Wizard with a dip in Bard because he needs the skill bonuses. LOL
