I just figured the rule was there for crazy characters trying to activate a scroll without knowing what spell was on it.
I don't think you can activate a scroll without reading it somehow and hence knowing what's on it - you can try to cast a spell that's above your level though, which requires a caster check.
Britons who harbour resentment tend to direct it towards Thatcher.
Rule of cool, I expect. Plus the skeleton-crewed ship is a staple of ghost stories all round the world, e.g. The Flying Dutchman, sightings of which seem quite consistent.
Actually (from wiki), Tolkien took over a decade to write Lord of the Rings (1937-1949, although admittedly WW II would have interfered). It was then published from 1954 with the writing finished.(Gave him the luxury of being able to edit Fellowship and Two Towers as necessary when writing Return).
He was a university professor, not making a living as a professional writer, so I don't think comparison to anyone else is helpful
I was going to say that I was imagining the world-wide outcry if J.K Rowling had failed to finish the Harry Potter series, but the thought is just too horrendous. On the other hand, she promised (at least implicitly) and delivered exactly 7 books in a relatively timely manner.
Unlike Robert Jordan and 'The Wheel of Time', where he seemed to think it fine to wander off into every side character's story.
I believe I'm going to have the 'pleasure' of voting for the constituency Farage is standing for in the next election. I feel compelled to turn out and vote against him, even if it means voting Tory (shudder). Boris is standing for election as well, of course. Do you think he'll steal UKIP votes back for the Tories?
Would you not speak out if you saw someone doing something you thought dangerous and it seemed they didn't?
My take is that his meaning is this:
Monty Python, Red Dwarf, Blackadder, Yes Minister (and Yes Prime Minister), the 'Wallace and Gromit' films ('The Wrong Trousers' etc), Fawlty Towers, (what others d people know that have made it to the States?)
(It's OK to tell us we're all nutters -we're rather proud of that.)
Pride released in the UK 2 weeks ago.
I don't know if it's likely to be available outside the UK, the history is very UK-specific. The miner's strike in 1984 was incredibly divisive in the UK, and even now, thirty years on, there's bitterness. I never heard about a "Gays and Lesbians support the miners" group at the time though

Yes, I'm sorry for over reacting. It was late and I was tired. Bad time to post anything.
I still think, though, that, especially for kids, the artwork is a lot about self-insertion - "Hey, I can do that, be that person"

The iconics aren't only, or even probably mostly, eye candy. They're also representative of the PCs I might play, and self-insertion for my self. And as as an over-40, less-than-fit woman, eye candy only is like telling me I ought to invest in plastic surgery (that I can't afford) become a hermit, or perhaps only go out of doors with a paper bag over my head.
Please note, though, I am only asking for diversity

So how do you achieve that?
A good starting point is, for example, if someone is casting a few hundred extras for TV or film in London (very multicultural) they cover the whole demographic as far as possible - i.e lots of non-white extras, the whole age demographic, a lot of people grouped into families or couples, some of which are same sex.
Because acceptance only really seems to happen when most people can say "Like (my mate/guy on TV) X, then"
Does Gozreh have a planar realm? I wasn't able to find one. As he's 'nature personified' in a sense, I rather liked the idea of his realm actually being the prime material - a sort of super kami.
Where do kami originate any way? Can a petitioner return as a kami?
Do you give enough info to a ranger so they don't choose a useless favoured enemy? Do you let them know whether to expect mostly urban or mostly wilderness? Because it's easy to build a totally useless character without any info

What country and what time period, for starters. Professional army, mercenary troops?
Well, then he'd be powerful enough that some of his sworn men are lords in their own right and have their own sworn men, so I think it's more "Lord such-and-such take your men there and Lord so-and-so take your men there and...".
A hierarchy of the lords sworn to him. If he (or more, the army) is lucky, the more powerful ones are actually competent.
One thing I'm curious about:
as a GM I have to play both genders (and lots of non-human creatures) to the best of my ability, and for all of them (even one of '6 guards') I try to have some hook to run if they're pushed into the limelight, regardless of their gender.
So, to other GMs, are you more concerned about genders when playing a PC than you would be playing an NPC? I don't think I am.
So the party of four move stealthily from Nadya's house to the centre of the village, where the guards are. Or rather 2 of them move stealthily, the Barbarian (Erisabetta) got about a 12, I think while the cleric (Min, cleric of Gozreh, wields a trident) makes a complete mess of things, and the guards get less than the 12 (say) needed to see Erisabetta.
So, "Erisabetta makes a sorry attempt at finding cover, but that's ok, because Min's made such a racket, everyone's staring at her. The leader of the guards, seeing only one person advancing in the middle of the street, marches cockily towards you and demands you lay down your weapons. Now what?"
"Er....I charge the leader and stick my trident in his chest."
"You what? Er.. Well I suppose he's surprised. I'm certainly surprised."
"He's surprised? Min's surprised herself, nevermind anyone else." Makes successful attack.
"Right, he's looking down, rather shocked at a trident sticking in his chest. Initiatives."
Cue slaughter of guards by Min and rest of party.
"Are you my mummy?"
-I nominate 'The Empty Child' as the the most traumatising episode ever...
This is one of the strangest rules in the game; requiring a feat to draw two weapons at the same time. Like a regular person can't use both hands at the same time to do basically the same thing on opposite sides of your body.
There was a lecturer when I was at university, who would try to use two board cleaners at the same time, and one hand would slow down and stop, and he'd notice and concentrate on it, and the other hand would slow down and stop; and he'd notice and concentrate on it and the first hand would slow down and stop....
So no, depending on the task, you can't necessarily do the same task with both hands and the same time.
I just don't see how this character would work in an RPG. I thought that newer RPGs were all about the player controlling their character. If the player has no control over when they rage, who would either want to play this pre-gen or have them in their party? There would be zero chance of coordinating any attacks, and a high probability of friendly-fire incidents. Just seems inconceivable that this character would be anything but a lone-wolf.
A lapse of memory at the end of the rage doesn't mean the player can't make all the decisions during the rage, the PC just doesn't remember afterwards.
Not to make fun of this... But how many of us bullied our siblings when we were younger?
Not me, she was 6 years older than me, and always a lot bigger. By the time I caught up size-wise, we both knew better. And we don't judge children by the same standards as adults.
Edit: IS 6 years older than me, still :) That hasn't changed.

Even more important, do you thread toilet paper so that it pulls forward from the top, like a civilized person does, or so you have to pull it forward from underneath, like a scurvy villain?
If you have a toddler, then paper that pulls from the top can very quickly become unrolled paper in a pile on the floor. I prefer it on the roll.
If one were, say, born bisexual, then one would hypothetically have a choice to be either 'gay' or 'straight' lifestyle-wise (in addition to just going with being bisexual). That doesn't change one's inherent sexual orientation, just how one chooses to express it. Your friend might easily fall into this category (and thus be legitimately happy with his wife), without the idea of changing orientation through will or faith being very applicable. And most people are at least a bit bisexual, so this whole scenario isn't even that uncommon per se...it's just also not necessarily a change in sexual orientation.
Except we don't really have much choice in who we develop a crush on.
Now I need an unfavorate tag. Or a 'Why oh why was I did I follow that link?' tag
