They didn't use the eagles because doing so would have defeated the purpose of a stealthy mission—the eagles are conspicuous and would have been immediately targeted by the Nazgul or the crebain swarms, not to mention archers on the enormous walls. Realizing the danger, Sauron would have put all his guards on the volcano, making it impossible to get the ring in without landing. Additionally, the eagles were their own sentient race, and they were never keen on going into danger. And I do wonder how flight would have worked as the ring got heavier and heavier.

*Literally cannot help but do this*

I was being 100% facetious. I also just finished Star Trek: Insurrection last night (just... wat) so my grip on humor is a little :\ and I kinda want to toss the entire cast of characters into a very dark pit... maybe with fire... and endless falling... possibly in an abandoned mine...

Asking the hard questions this morning in the office...

Katina There's a character named Dr. Crusher? Does she have giant robot clamps?
Diego Beverly Crusher
Robot She has tenuous grasp on medicine and the prime directive.
Katina If she can't crush a car with her bare claws, then I don't think she deserves that name.
Diego At least she spends more time in sickbay than Dr. McCoy did
Robot Point.
Robot But how the federation made her a captain eventually... yikes.
Diego Enterprise is in a firefight and people are getting hurt and McCoy is hanging out on the bridge, then goes to engineering to help modify a torpedo (why...?)
Diego Haha yeah, that surprised me too.
Robot I theorized that maybe the first Enterprise was just seriously poorly manned? I dunno. Why does the captain ever beam off the ship?
Katina Beer run?
Diego They keep their entire senior staff in a dome on the top of the ship. Why don't enemies just shoot the dome?
Robot WHY DIDN'T THE HOBBITS JUST RIDE THE EAGLES TO MT DOOM??!!?!?
Sharaya RIGHT?!!
Diego They were being taught to fish!
Katina Gandalf wanted them to walk because he thought it'd build character.
Katina ... and/or they were trying to get their Fitbit steps.

Locking. It's fine to compare/contrast different RPG settings on our forums. However, the premise here seems to encourage an "us vs them" dialogue (similar to how edition warring posts are) and is seeking to affirm a preconceived idea, rather than having a constructive discussion.

Locking for now until we can fully review. The discourse over the last couple of pages is way too elevated, and I think this thread needs a break over the long weekend before discussion can resume.

Yeah, that would be really handy, provided it doesn't overload you Mods :3

I guess I should clarify that the intent with that feature is that the notes/feedback attached to a flag is not a dialogue where moderators respond to the user directly. Even with that feature, we would encourage folks who are spotting larger or more nuanced issues/questions to email community@paizo.com/post to this subforum (as appropriate).

This is a great question! New flagging options are pretty deeply embedded into the forums architecture, and the Tech Team is quite backed up and unlikely to be able to implement this before we decide how to we're going to treat political threads going forward. However, I feel the following might be more effective:

Quote:

"Breaks other guidelines" becomes "Reason not listed"

o When selecting prompt in the modal the user is presented with the option to flag as normal or to provide feedback in text box that is passed along to community@paizo.com as needed (This prompt text should say, "Help us understand whats happening" or similar)

I am curious to hear what folks this about this—from my perspective it seems more user friendly than a call to open up an email app/tab to contact us at our inbox, and that folks might be more compelled to explain their reasoning behind flagging (occasionally we come across "Breaks other guidelines" posts that are fairly ambiguous).

Do we know when the singles will be on sale? I don't want to miss the ridiculously short timeframe, like I did last set. I only need one more candleabra and I'm happy. Ill probably have to eBay my second Book of the Damned, to pay for it, but I need two candles.

They will go on sale tomorrow and be on sale until 12/31.*

*Of course with the caveat that that is not a guarantee that certain singles will not sell out quickly or that all will be available during that entire timeframe.

Great question, we're trying to sort that out presently up here in webstore land. I expect we'll have news one way or the other once minis go on sale tomorrow :)

Removed a long series of back-and-forth bickering and locking, as this discussion does not appear to be on a trajectory to be productive at this point.

Removed a series of back-and-forth playstyle bickering. Folks, sharing experiences and providing advice are more than cool, but turning an Advice thread into a platform for sniping at each other isn't. Rather than arguing about who is "right", let's keep comments constructive. Thanks!

To the newly created 5th edition (and beyond) subforum.
Am I the only one who finds it amusing that it's "5th edition (and beyond)", expecting full-well that if there's a 6th edition, we'll be having this same discussion then, asking for a dedicated 6th edition area to avoid confusion?

To clarify my reasoning behind the nomenclature: the subforum also houses 3PP supplement discussion and general D&D chatter. There is enough discussion surrounding 5E that the former forum was less-than-aptly titled and it seemed only reasonable to scoot the threads into a new home :)

Removed another series of posts. Again, threads soliciting for advice tend to do better when people actually provide advice or share their experience in a productive way. Unless you're posting with the intent of doing so, let's leave unrelated commentary out of the discussion or take it to another venue.

Sure! I've ported all threads modified since September 2016. We can chip away as we have time, but if you find more nuanced threads that might be-less-than easy to identify by their thread titles for us to move, feel free to flag it.

Removed a post and the resulting responses. Participants on our forums should be mindful that our community is comprised of a wide array of gamers with a variety of life experiences, and that off-hand jokes/commentary regarding sexual assault are totally inappropriate.

Moved to a more appropriate subforum and removed a series of posts/their responses.

Folks, when a thread is soliciting for advice on our forums, regardless of it's location within the forum structure, let's stick to trying to lend a hand to the OP by offering helpful input or sharing your experience productively. By derailing the thread with arguments re: sensitivity or "political correctness", it takes away the opportunity for the resulting discussion to be a potential resource for folks looking for similar advice in the future. Additionally, we welcome a wide variety of gamers here and trying to one-up each other to determine who is right about what the threshold for offensiveness is (including using "SJW" as a pejorative and calling each other trolls) helps nobody.

Due to an increase in negatively charged posting surrounding the recent US election cycle, and the amount of time required of our staff to address these posts (as well as conflict between community members), we've made the decision to put political threads in the Off-Topic subforum on pause. While we regroup to consider how we handle political threads moving forward, active and new political threads will be locked. Our goal with our forums is to create a space that is both welcoming and productive for gamers to come together, and at this time, political threads are driving a wedge into that space. We do not have an ETA for when political threads will resume, but will make that information available once we've made decisions regarding their status.

Locking.

Removed a number of posts and their responses, either for off-topic commentary, derailment, personally abusive statements, or intentional baiting others in the conversation. Folks, after an incredibly contentious electoral cycle and the amount of work put in by our staff during that time to moderate discussions (as well as conflict between community members), we've made the decision to put political threads in our Off-Topic subforum on pause for the time being. We are regrouping to consider how we handle political threads moving forward, and do not have an ETA for when they will continue. Our goal with our forums is to create a productive space for gamers to come together, and at the moment, these threads are driving a wedge into that space. A sticky will be posted in this subforum indicating as such shortly.

Removed some baiting and less-than-civil comments and their responses. Folks, the paizo.com forums aim to be a space where gamers can come together in a fun and friendly environment. We've asked on more than one occasion in this very thread to decouple the frustration at the current state of affairs with vitriol aimed at specific posters in the conversation. At 142 pages and over 7,000 posts, we understand that people are passionate and invested in discussing this election and it outcome, but it's likely the time to let this particular thread come to a close, and break out topics into new/separate threads of conversations.

Went through and removed some less-than-civil/baiting posts and their responses. We're going to go ahead and leave this thread locked for now, as the topics arising now are ones that should honestly go in different or new threads.

Removed a passive aggressive insult and responses to it. Folks, just as I indicated yesterday in the election thread: take a new look at our Community Guidelines, focus on discussing ideas (not other thread participants), and try to keep the conversation civil. Our moderation team is trying to provide as fair as a space as is possible in the election-related threads, and taking a step back from making a heated/inflammatory comment is of a great help to us and everyone else in this thread.

Removed a baiting post and the responses to it. Let's not make negative assumptions about experience level and correlate that to an individual/groups "creativity" or play style.

EDIT: Removed an additional post. If you have questions about moderation, please forward them to our Website Feedback subforum or community@paizo.com as appropriate, so as to not to derail the current conversation. Thanks!

Removed a couple posts and the resulting responses. We don't have interest in hosting commentary which disparages whole religious/ethnic groups on our website. Please familiarize yourself with our Community Guidelines before posting.

Also, given our closeness to Election Day and it still being the weekend, I'm leaving this closed until we return to the office tomorrow.

EDIT: Now unlocked. Before re-engaging in this thread, take a quick peek at the guidelines linked above. Let's focus on challenging ideas, not other people in the conversation. The next ~24 hours are going to be pretty exciting/tense for all parties. Trying to keep the conversation civil is a great help to our moderation team, and we appreciate your understanding.

Removed a series of back and forth bickering posts and the responses to them. Minor venting about gaming terms is not a reason to start making disparaging comments about another persons experience with English, and definitely isn't cause for disparaging their preferred play style.

Removed a number of posts, their responses, and unlocking.

The Advice subforum has a very specific central purpose: to be a space for folks to solicit for and provide advice for others for their Pathfinder RPG characters or campaigns (this is outlined in the Advice Forum Guidelines). Emotionally charged and negative responses (such as taunts, baiting commentary, or insults) that essentially undermine the end result the original poster is seeking (in this case, advice for how to portray gender neutral characters in their campaign) erode at the purpose of this space.

We strive to make the paizo.com forums an inclusive and friendly space. Discussions surrounding gender and sexuality need to be kept respectful, as participants in this space come from a variety of backgrounds and personal experiences. If you are unfamiliar with a term or are confused about the distinction between gender/sex in the context of a given conversation, asking questions is fine (doing a some cursory searching online to shed light on those questions is also a good idea), but it is less-than-helpful for everyone involved to to respond with snark or incredulity (and can in fact be harmful to others). We ask that participants in these discussions approach them in good faith and be open to the possibility that their understanding of a subject may not be the reality of someone else in the same conversation.

Removed a long series of posts surrounding a different product from a different publisher. The intent of product discussion threads is to house information surrounding to the specific product the threads are attached to, and we ask participants to curb unrelated conversations and take it to another thread.

We also expect everyone who posts on paizo.com to adhere to our Community Guidelines. Creating accounts for the sole purpose of piling onto an issue is considered baiting, and creating additional accounts as aliases for yourself undermines our goal of fostering honest and meaningful discussion. Additionally, encouraging dog-piling behavior on an individual or company on our website goes against the spirit of the environment we strive for.

While the intent of this action may be to bring Paizo's attention to an issue, a "flame war" (IE: defaming commentary of other publishers or freelancers within our industry) isn't the appropriate method to do so. Paizo values our relationship with the third-party publishing community, and by extension, our relationship with other gaming industry publishers. The channel for handling third-party content (in addition to consignment product hosted on our website) and for addressing Pathfinder Compatibility License issues (including violations) is consignments@paizo.com.
