Over time the Flash comics got seriously cluttered with both speedsters and time travellers. I really hope the TV show stays as far away from growing either group as much as possible.

A Reverse Flash was a must-have, and it looks like the writers have melded the backstories of the two from the comics, so I don't expect to see a second one. I wouldn't mind a nod to a previous Flash across the river in Keystone City; too bad Shipp is playing Barry's dad since he'd have been obvious casting for Jay Garrick.

I'm not convinced Barry needs a sidekick, but if they ever bring one in I think it would almost have to be some interpretation of Wally West. He was Iris's nephew in the comics, and could be her cousin on the TV show. Anyone else (Barry's grandkids Bart Allen/Impulse and Jenni Ognats/XS, or his kids Don & Dawn Allen/Tornado Twins) are from the 30th Century and would complicate the series by either making time travel an accessible thing, or requiring some lame explanation for why that person can't/doesn't go back home and why the timestream isn't corrupted by his/her presence.

Other unnecessary speedsters: Max Mercury, Johnny Quick, Jessie Quick, Kapitalist Kouriers, Cobalt Blue (Barry's separated-at-birth twin brother, Malcolm Thawne)...

Unnecessary time travelers: Any of Barry's decendents, any other member of the Thawne family, and Iris's mother.

Bruce's stand was admirable, but at this stage largely pointless, as evidenced by Selina's response:

Bruce: "You can't ever do that again!"
Selina: "Or what?"
Bruce: "..."
Selina: [other possible spoilery stuff] "If I had to do it again, I would. And I wouldn't have any problem with it."

One principled stand, zero impact.

I can see the maps but only 3 for Carrion Crown. What happened to doing maps for the whole adventure path? Our group could really use maps like these for the area around Caliphas.

This is a lot like constantly berating someone in AA or on a diet about all the horrible stuff they did BEFORE they tried to get help and be a better person...

The constant killing was something that bugged the heck out of me in season one, and I LOVE the new 'heroic' direction. I REALLY don't want to wallow in all of his past mistakes and just make the show an angst-fest.

Pigging out on junk food before deciding to diet is not remotely similar to committing multiple murders without consequence and then deciding, "okay, that's enough."

I appreciate that he's decided to be a better person, but there's no legal statute of limitations on murder, why do you feel there should be a moral one? No matter how heroic he is now, the people he killed then are no less dead, and no less deprived of their right to due process.

Because we need the character for the show, he can't go to jail. I get that.

Because constant wallowing in self-pity is a waste of the viewer's time, I get that Ollie mostly needs to see himself as a different person and just move on.

I would just like to see some acknowledgement from some character that unlawful death remains unlawful death no matter how sorry you are about it later. Yet everyone on the show treats it like "hey, the past is the past, forget it."

Our group is a little bit cash poor, desirous of a number of magical equipment upgrades, and only two of our six PCs are item crafters.

For the items we can -- just barely -- afford for the group, we're looking at being in town for 130 days (that assumes a 6-day work week for the item crafters, and one day a week off.)

We could save time by buying some of the items we want, but we've stretched our cash to the limit as is, so saving time also means giving some items up.

Two questions:

1) can the non-crafters earn enough captial over two or three month period to pay for any magical equipment upgrades?

2) are there any circumstances in which the crafters would be better off using earned capital instead of just doing the crafting work normally?

But if you stop and say, "Whelp, Ollie deserves to go to jail for that", then... well, that's the end of the series, right?

He certainly deserves to go to trial for that, even if he ends up being acquitted or has the verdict set aside for some reason. I realize that was problematic while keeping his identity secret. It doesn't bother me that the show runners give him pass as much as it does that the other characters do. For varying lengths of time he's had Det./Capt. Lance being willing to overlook it, along with ADA Laurel, and the group's moral center, Felicity. No one seems even a little conflicted. "You used to kill people? How awful. Well, as long as you don't do it any more, it's just like it never happened at all."

Peter Stewart wrote:
Should police that shoot suspects who shoot at them be considered bad guys and locked away? Does the badge on their chest suddenly make killing morally right? I ask, because the only difference is that one is directly sanctioned by the state.

The response to this becomes tricky because of all the recent press cops are getting about pumping 41 shots into unarmed persons, or beating people to death after they've been fully restrained. I have my opinions about that, and don't care to discuss it here. For purposes of this discussion I'll assume all cops are "good guys" doing their job as they've been trained. With that in mind...

Police that shoot suspects who shoot at them, or at innocent bystanders, are doing their jobs and should not be punished or vilified for doing so. Police are empowered to do this, by society, because they've been screened, hired and trained to do the dangerous job of protecting the public. Lethal force is not their first or preferred option; it's used when necessary after they've tried to de-escalate the situation, or use non-lethal means to counter the suspect. Their uniforms, badges and methods of engaging suspects (i.e., Police! Stop or I'll shoot!) serve to notify bad guys that certain consequences may result from failure to comply with an order to desist.

Early Season One Ollie, OTOH, didn't wait for, or limit himself to responding to, life-threatening situations. He'd show up at someone's office, declare they'd failed the city while aiming a lethal weapon at them, and thereby provoke an armed response. He wasn't screened or hired by anyone, has no mandate from the public to act on their behalf, and unlike policemen, pretty much all of his training has been on the effective kill. He never made an effort to de-escalate a tense situation (still doesn't) and lethal force was at the time his first, preferred and only option.

Later declaring oneself a Hero doesn't suddenly put a person above law or morality, or erase past actions. Ollie can't go to jail; the show would shut down. But someone needs to call him on his past BS.

Roy just does not think straight. How does this logic work?

"While I was under the influence of a drug that was forced on me, not in control of my own actions, I killed a man so I deserve to be in prison. I'll claim to be the Arrow, so prison can be avoided for a man who made the choice to kill several people while in full control of his faculties."

Yeah, Roy killed a cop, Ollie killed "bad guys." Yes, I feel bad for the cop's family. Did Ollie's victims not have families? Roy's involuntary manslaughter would seem to fall way short of the straight-up serial killings Ollie carried out at the start of the Arrow's career in Starling.

I love the show, but it continues to bug me that everyone is willing to give Ollie a pass on multiple murders simply because he's decided not to do it any more.

Just watched a trailer for "Time Lapse"; Danielle Panabaker and friends have a way to see into the future. Predictably, things go well for them in the short term. But will they have a long term?

It's not quite time travel, but still amusing to see "Caitlin" as part of this movie.

Rather than worry about different weapon damage types, just take Weapon Focus in hammer or mace and pick up the weapon versatility feat:

Weapon Versatility (Combat)
You can use your favored weapons in unconventional ways.
Prerequisite(s): Weapon Focus, base attack bonus +1
Benefit(s): When wielding a weapon with which you have Weapon Focus, you can shift your grip as a swift action so that your weapon deals bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage instead of the damage type normally dealt by that weapon. You may switch back to the weapon's normal damage type or another damage type as a swift action.
If your base attack bonus is +5 or higher, using this feat is a free action instead.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

For hammers or maces, you might ask if your GM will allow you to commission a special weapon where the head is actually made of two separate pieces -- one silver and one cold iron -- mounted onto the same end of the haft in such a way that they act as a normal version of the weapon but can bypass either DR simply by rotating your grip rather than having to switch to a different weapon.

I feel like we need a chart for aligned pizza toppings.

Crystal would need to supply specifics, but we have some data to start with: "Green pepper = evil, while sun-dried tomatoes are a sure sign of neutral good. Pepperoni is the true neutral of pizza toppings..."

So, assume Good/Evil to be the X axis and Law/Chaos to be the Y axis, with Good/Law having positive numeric values and Evil/Chaos negative numeric values, from 1 to 5. Pepperoni is X+0/Y+0, green pepper has a negative X value and an unknown Y value; and sun-dried tomatoes ("sure sign of neutral good") likely has an X value of at least +3, maybe X+3/Y+0.

Past that I *think* we only have overall alignment results for a complete pizza. I don't know if we can infer alignments for more individual ingredients, and certainly not their relative strengths.

Crystal, we await enlightenment. And dinner.

True resurrection is, you should pardon the expression, overkill. A normal resurrection will do it, and is 15,000gp cheaper.

Perhaps the whole pizza topping thing should be chartified, showing how much each ingredient weighs toward a given alignment extreme. Then a person could plot the net alignment before ordering.

Gonzales's attitude seems to be "Anything I can't personally control -- a cube of information, another S.H.I.E.L.D. faction, superpowered individuals -- is automatically dangerous and must be brought to heel."

In another character, you might say that was motivation from fear, but that would be inconsistent with Gonzales's backstory, so for him it must be motivation from distrust. He can't get past being suspicious of everyone; not entirely unreasonable given the whole HYDRA infiltration, but still...if he can't trust anyone or anything he can't control, his logical evolution over time is to become what he says Fury was, playing things closer and closer to the vest until he becomes the Keeper of Secrets.

Yeah, being a vampire is not good, but being a vrykolakas...that's probably the worst sort of vampire you could be.

Although raise dead or reincarnate won't have any effect, a resurrection or true resurrection will turn you back into a happy, socialble mortal.

Get to a temple of Pharasma and find out what you need to do to have them cast a 7th level spell on you when you presumably can't afford the requisite 10,000gp diamond.

Outside of evocations it's easy to find spells that benefit from +1 DC or +1 caster level, not so easy to find spells that benefit from both.

I've been hoping they'd expand out of the area with Campaign Setting, Player Companion and [more] Adventure Paths before we reach the Butterflies of the Inner Sea stage, but it's not looking good, is it?

I'm 55 years old. I probably will not see Arcadia, Azlant, or Sarusan before I die. But is it too much to ask for some real information on southern Garund, Casmaron or Tian Xia?

On the one hand, Paizo is expanding left, right and sideways with the four major Pathfinder subscription lines (adventure path, roleplaying, companion and setting) now joined by a host of other product types.

On the other hand, in 102 AP volumes, only 4 have been outside the Inner Sea area (books 3-6 of Jade Regent.) I'd be happy if, going forward, the Inner Sea region gradually took up less and less of the annual product output for the AP and setting lines, eventually bottoming out at 50%. So years from now, you'd have "X" number of Inner Sea releases per year balanced by the same number of similar products from...anywhere else. That would mean one "foreign" AP per year.

I guess Paizo has a general notion to detail areas outside the Inner Sea region at some unspecified date in the indeterminate future. Not good enough. Get on it, please!

EDIT: How many of these "...of Golarion" products are de facto "...of the Inner Sea" products because of the scope of their content?

Bastards, Cities, Dungeons, Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Gnomes, Halflings, Humans, Kobolds, Lost Cities, Orcs, Tombs of...

Hence why getting indicted for treason is a distinct possibility in the case of failure. Hard to prove intent.

Indictments are easy. Convictions might not be, but you can't just set aside the question of intent because proving it might be hard; it's called "burden of proof" for a reason and as always, it's on the prosecutor.

Why go for a hard-to-prove treason charge? You shouldn't have any trouble with failure to obey the orders of a superior officer, dereliction of duty, failure to safeguard classified materials and probably several more. Plenty to have the guy reduced in rank, dishonorably discharged and/or imprisoned. No need to execute him.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Disobeying the direct order of a superior officer, while serious, does not constitute treason. To satisfy a charge of treason the offender must either make war against the US or "adhere to" the enemy and them give aid and comfort.

Disobeying the order with the intent of having the ship its crew or cargo fall into enemy hands would have been treasonous, but poor judgment is not, no matter what the outcome.

For various reasons, I've decided that my best bet is going to be a Sprite with high Charisma and class levels in Oracle. Literally be a pocket healer.

1) I've been going through oracle mysteries, and I think I'm pretty much settled on Life Oracle for this just to turn them into a more efficient little healing battery. Does anyone have recommendations for a Mystery that might end up meshing better?

Life mystery does seem to be the way to go.

2) One thing that I'd really like it to be able to do that an Oracle can't do is cast Mage Armor on me. Is there some way I get an Oracle to be able to cast Mage Armor through a feat or a trait I'm overlooking? Besides a level dip in Sorcerer.

The Destined bloodline is good not only for the Touch of Destinty ability, but also for having blur as a bloodline spell. Taking the Draconic bloodline instead gives him mage armor as a bloodline spell (3rd), along with fly (7th), another non-cleric spell.

The minor spell expertise feat will let him cast a 1st level spell as a spell-like ability twice a day.

Buying a wand of mage armor for 750gp will let him do that 50 times, for an hour each time.

(Of course if you can scrounge up 16,000gp, bracers of armor +4 effectively give you mage armor 24/7.)

When selecting revelations for the Life mystery, get Channel, Enhanced Cures and Safe Curing, not necessarily in that order.

Oracles know few spells, but they draw from the cleric list which has lots of good buffs. Carefully chosen pages of spell knowledge will allow your oracle to expand his buffing repertoire.

So from last night's episode we know that...

Spoiler:
The real Eobard Thawne was active as the Reverse Flash in the far future and made multiple trips to the past to fight Barry; since the show doesn't necessarily follow any particular comics storyline, we don't yet know why -- just what was his issue with the Flash?

At some point he got fed up and decided to kill young Barry before the Flash came to be; just as well for him that he failed, because seconds after he failed to do that, his suit ran out of juice and stranded him in the past. Now he has to (re)create the Flash so he can tap into the Speed Force and get back home, where...what? He'll go back to making time trips to fight the Flash? This guy needs a new hobby.

Now that we know Wells hasn't been Wells this whole time, I'm not sure why Thawne-as-Wells has been so concerned with making sure the Flash remains on track to disappear during the Crisis...unless at that point the Flash "disappears" into Thawne's time, where the two meet for the "first" time. If that doesn't happen, Thawne's personal timeline is screwed up, he might never make time trips, etc.

It's still not clear to me how Nora Allen was accidentally killed during the fight between Thawne and adult Barry. Or maybe Thawne killed her to buy time to get away from adult Barry? I think he only told Cisco he hadn't gone to the Allen house to kill Nora, he'd gone there to kill Barry.

What Glenn does now is march Nicholas back to the community and insist he confess everything: how Nicholas and Aiden were the ones who panicked and broke protocol, not the earlier batch of new recruits; how Nicholas got Noah killed and tried to leave Glenn and the others behind immediately after; how he lied about that, and now tried to murder Glenn.

Glenn knows he needs to show Deanna and the others that Rick's group is more than just a bunch of hardened killers. He's had reason and opportunity to kill Nicholas more than once, and hasn't. Holding back is the difference between "we were almost out there too long" and "it's too late, we were absolutely out there too long."

Yes, he's been around since the early '60s but was never an A-list character. In the comics, Ray Palmer was a graduate student in physics who discovered a way to shrink things using a piece of a white dwarf star. He got trapped in a cave-in, and was forced to risk the process on himself to get out.

He created the superhero identity of The Atom. He's able to shrink to submicroscopic size, but as a rule switches between his normal height and about six inches.

DC comics continuity being what it is (non-existent, over the long term), Palmer has been replaced as The Atom, come back, had his backstory changed, etc.

Welcome, Julie!

So, ages ago, watching an episode of Buffy where two characters switch minds and learning that an actress I liked was not good playing the other actresses character, while the other actress *rocked* at playing the other character. It kind of completely changed my view of those two actresses.

"Witch" where cheerleader and rat-to-be Amy swaps minds with her mom? Robin Riker as mom; Elizabeth Anne Allen as Amy.

Tonight, more of the same, with Ming-Na Wen doing an incredible job playing Agent 33, really selling her insecurity and lack of self-confidence, while Chloe Bennett didn't really rock my world in her scenes as Agent 33.

Completely agreed. Bennett was lame there. Agent 33 was played by...six people in that episode? The major she impersonated after Talbot's wife *may* have had less personality, by virtue of having no lines (as Agent 33.)

I know from past experience how difficult (and sometimes demoralizing) job hunting can be, even for just a few months.

It's good you have a plan.

For those who believe consumables should "haunt the character forever" as part of his WBL, consider the problem from this angle: your 5th level Wizard just died (in a Medium advancement game, where the GM pays attention to WBL) with no hope of being raised. You need to create a 5th level replacement.

The table indicates you're entitled to 10,500gp worth of gear, but realistically over the course of his career to date, that Wizard will have burned through a number of potions/oils/elixirs, alchemical items, scrolls, a wand or two, maybe a couple of feather tokens. Just to put some numbers to it, let's say...

6 potions of 1st level spells - 300gp
6 scrolls of 1st level spells - 150gp
2 potions of 2nd level spells - 1,200gp
2 scrolls of 2nd level spells - 600gp
2 elixirs (hiding and vision) - 500gp
2 wands of 1st level spells - 1,500gp
10 flasks of alchemists fire - 200gp
5 tanglefoot bags - 250gp
1 feather token (bird) - 300gp

If you assume your replacement 5th level PC has already used these up, is he still entitled to 10,500gp in combined permanent and [unused] consumables when you create him, or only 5,500gp worth?

The assertion that consumables don't put a dent in WBL, or that no one ever spends much of their gold on them, is not warranted.
