Yes Virginia, there is sexism
And at least some of us can agree that it's rooted in misogyny (so even when men are oppressed by sexism, it's because of a sexist valuing of masculinity and devaluing of femininity).
What you're saying here is that when a man hates women, he's wrong, and sexist; but when a woman hates men, it's really the man's fault anyway, so he's still wrong. Grow up. Take responsibility for yourself and your actions.
From my lovely niece and her boyfriend I got a Star Wars t-shirt
I got a Build-a-Bear Fluttershy plushie for my grand-niece(!!!) Yeah I'm weirded out that I have one of those too!
And for my favorite redhead I got some window decorations for her room, a scrap book set and some outfits she had pointed out.
I got my older brother a copy of Avalon Hill's "Midway!" (boardgame re-enactment of the WWII Battle of Midway Is.) We used to play that when we were kids (late 60's early 70's) and it went missing quite a while ago so when I saw it I grabbed it.
All I wanted was a pair of slippers. Did not receive lol!
Best watch out saying stuff like that. This is the Festivus season! AND NOW, THE FEATS OF STRENGTH!!

After chatting with the officer, Cimbria enters the first room on the right, noting the carefully folded bathrobe centered exactly at the foot of the cot. Noting that a hot shower will unwind the coiled tension in her back, she begins to disrobe and puts on the bathrobe,
"Ugh...not much for laundering facilities here...this robe smells...
She steps the the door of the lavatory and puts a hand on the doorknob, in time to hear the sudden hiss and sputter of the shower starting up...
"What the deuce-?"
Alarmed but steady, Cimbria picks up her truncheon, fings open the door and sees: ---
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.

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.
