Why hand them the whole basket in one swoop? Start leaving Infernal "love letters" to start. The mysterious note in Infernal script that says "I'm coming for you soon!", or "You will be mine" with a crudely drawn image of the character impaled on a post. Once you drop the "This is the contract, here ya go!" You take away a ton of the drama that goes with ancestral curses. Then it becomes "just another adventure" instead of "Holy crap who is this???" Esp if the letter appears in conjunction with a dream the whole group shares.
Gramma Brox take t-cozy as weppin. Gramma Brox one tough cookee. Gramma Brox tell me she switch to woodin spoon for crit range but still love cozy damages...

When I was running a Call of Cthulhu campaign, I brought in 1920's style plane tickets, bus passes, matchbooks, old really weird looking statuary, "weathered" pages of manuscript and other assorted odds and ends. Was really fun. I used those little glass beads (you find em at the bottom of vases and stuff) as gems and put them in a small dice bag...all kinds of stuff!
Correct, so there are some who stay. But adventurers tend to get in that line a LOT! :D (And sometimes they jump ahead, or to the back end of said line as a result of res, raise and the like)
Do you think Pharasma sees through this stuff and made a special line just for adventurers?
"Sir Reginald, Cavalier Extraordinaire, Slayer of Dragons, etc etc etc"
"Umm...Sir Reg, we have an exclusive line here...away from the rabble..."
"Oh how convenient!"

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
HAHA!! YAY! Fungus face kitty bring backskracher!
Funny too. Fungus face kitty tink Brox uncivilianized. Fungus face kitty to focused on looks. Not see Brox upholding fundamental economic truth found in civilianized lands. Payments rendered for services means services must be rendered.
Brox not so foolish as fungus face kitty tink.
Laurie Holden (Andrea), Jeffrey DeMunn (Dale), Melissa McBride (Carol), and Juan Gabriel Pareja (Morales) all worked with Frank Darabont in the movie "The Mist" (awesome horror flick, very Lovecraftian). Also, Samuel Witwer (Private Jessup, from "The Mist") makes a cameo in TWD as the walker inside the tank in Season One.
Also: Poor Herschel. I feel sorry for the guy.

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. Use the right tool to get the job done. Brox use a sock with copper coins init to knok peepul out.
I wouldn't be against each missile adding a +2 *cumulative* bonus (after the first missile) to the trip check when shooting missiles at a single target. That would make the trick a bit more useful as the character levels, and add a bit of strategy to MM use. (All on one target to make him fall over? Or spread the love and hit a bunch of mooks? You decide!)
Picture the Hulk getting shot by an MLRS missile launcher, first missle hits, and he shrugs it off, followed immediately by a second missile which makes him lean back a bit, third missile makes him take a step back and the fourth makes him fall over. All very cinematic and cool! (Then he gets up and crushes the MLRS, but that was a foregone conclusion anyway...)
Been playing since 1 month after release. Got my BE DK almost to max level. Since the guild is all back together it's been pretty sweet. Lots took a break late in Cata and it's been a ghost town. I like the imagery and some of the music. Questing is made more difficult by mob density (lots of "swarm" mobs between regular mobs...annoying. Plus they upped the damage output of mobs. I've died more times than I care to admit (but I am using a DPS spec so yeah)
Brox seem like dim-witted brute, but rilly smrt cookee. Brox go with pally to talk to duke right hand guy. Walk while talk. Case joint, eyeball shinies. Make bestest guess on shinies. Get taken before duke. Brox open "big fat mouf (dat what paladin say)" get throw in dunjon. Brox use big clawed paw to palm key. Sneak out, go back find shinies. Mebbe put grot-shiv in back of guard. Mebbe use choppa on duke right hand guy. Hide bodies at bottom of jakes wair no one look. Mebbe unlock dunjon for big-mouf pally too. Mebbe stand and laff befor unlock. make proffit, get job from Duke, make moar proffit
Also, don't forget the rule of cool! If that fiendish minotaur were mine, I'd describe how he looks physically (serrated horns, iron-shod hoofs with spikes, hellish orange eyes that glow as if there were a fire behind them. Saliva that burns and leaves angry red weals on the skin (no damage, just cool looking. The marks go away with healing magic but not normal healing).
Most important rule:Show, Don't Tell!!!

Trap Spotter (You've already discounted this one)
In that order (my opinion).
None of those three are dependent on the rogue level or number of sneak attack dice. There are other talents like that (Rogue Crawl, Slow Reactions, Stand Up), but they are pretty lackluster.
Brox allows you to leave with a dismissive hand-wave. He does not even glance in your direction
Brox tired of talk
Brox pay tree times for song and dance

Doze wands r mad usin Chelaxian slave labur!! U aughta be asham'd uv yerself supportin slave labur lik dat! BAD PALADIN! FITE DA POWA!!!
Seriously though, the expediency and easy accessibility of a wand of curing is not an option to be easily overlooked in Society play. I know this orc rogue has benefitted immensely from that one handy little twig. Look at it this way. It's an investment in your future, and it saves spell casting for clutch situations in combat whereas otherwise there would be an eternity of regret!
That being said, let's get one thing straight between us...if you tell anyone you heard me talking in this manner I will find you and knife you in your sleep, and no amount of Wand of Healing will save you! Intimidate= 12+9= 21 vs 10+1-2=9. You Lose!muahahahahaha!
Now that I'm playing an Inq I get that feeling a lot too. Although my friends call me out on channeling Mathias Thulmann a lot as well.
Fairly good read overall, I've read it at least four or more times. Gives some very good examples of the use of Intimidate (even though the two actual game systems are completely incompatable, it's not hard to read a sentence and say "AHA! He just rolled a 20 on his intimidate check!) Plus it gives insight into the mentality behind being a "good guy" and still using torture.
Antitoxin and antiplague are both very usefull and saves a spell each for our caster...10 foot pole. Tip things over (checking for traps) tap the floor (same thing) use it for balance. Use it to extend your reach when helping someone out of a hole, off a cliff face etc. on the magic side: Gloves of storing (I play a rogue, go figure) campfire bead. camp stove.
I'm still hearing "moose and squirrel". :D
ARG...you had to go and say "moose"!!!!!
Wi nøt trei a høliday in Sweden this yer?
See the løveli lakes
The wonderful telephøne system
And mani interesting furry animals
Including the majestic møøse
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse
Now see what you've done!
(Editor's note: This is how you can go from "moose" to "porn" in one simple step. Sharing is caring!)
The correlary of that was cross class skills cost twice as much to raise in ranks. Therefore 1 rank= 2 skill points.
Am find little singy not-gobbo! <clap clap>

why you wear bedsheet? You tired?
Good room down road at inn. Mostly cheep if give innman hard-eye
mebbe later you try out right?
but then they wouldn't be team work feats, they'd just be, "feats'
OP...make sure you have "Paired Opportunists" if your ally gets an AOO, you get one too. That's how you stack them feats!
(If you're an inquisitor, this combo, plus Cornugon Smash and Outflank are really nice to have....my inq will be rocking all of them as I level up...so much fun!)
Waaaaaaaay back in the day (Sherman, go set the WAIBAC machine!) I had a mutliclass elven thief/mage from Waterdeep who only referred to himself as "Lyrarenil of Waterdeep, The Cosmopolitan Center of the Realms". And he said it with as much flavor as possible. When made to wear a new cloak purchased (at great expense) from a vendor in Baldur's Gate he only ever held it with one finger and thumb, and referred to it as "*That* horse blanket from Port Drudge."
