Though if you do make a book about my talents it will have to be so heavily censored it will mostly just be black lines with the occasional word here and there. Not sure many people would consider that a good buy.

The fact that someone will shove a tool in orifices it is not meant to go is not a reason to stop improving the tool.

I never said one should not work on making things more balanced. My point was, you can get lost on chasing balance and miss the reason most of us got into playing in the first place. Which is to have fun. Trying to make something balanced is all well and good and I agree the closer things are the better, but there is no mythical perfect balance.

It turns out that these kinds of statements are useless for game design. You really can figure out balance in a game if you decide to work on it. Saying it is "subjective" is kind of like saying working on it is pointless. For a counter example to this, see every asymmetrical game ever made

No what it means is what is balanced to me and my group may or may not be considered balanced to another group. Because of the types of games they play. You can't have perfect balance against all things, in all situations. Because the game designs can not possible know what all types of game styles people are going to be running in their games. So part of the idea of balance must fall on the group in question and the GM in question, to insure their is balance with how they play the game.

For example you could have the same class in a Pathfinder game and how good that class is can vary from game to game based on how they run it.

I disagree. The more the rules support everyone getting their moment, the less I have to work on it as a GM, leaving me more time and energy to work on things the system cannot help me with, like personalities and plots.

Except how the GM runs will always trump the game system. If someone makes a beast of a combat character in a game, no matter the game system. Then if all the GM runs is social encounters and investigations, said combat beast will never have a moment to shine regardless of the rules.

Then we only disagree on the point that 'Pathfinder allows everyone to have their moments to shine'.

IMHO everyone having their moment to shine has more to do with the GM than the game rules. A GM is god in their game they can set up situations where everyone has their moments. Of course what it means to shine is also subjective and heavily based on what the player wants out of the game. Knowing what your players want out of the game and giving them moments to accomplish it, in my experience works and makes everyone happy.

In a slightly more serious response. Some people are at best casual players, they play more for the social aspect of gaming than because of the game. They have no desire to put any time into learning a game. The truth is you can't force them to want to learn the game. All you can do is find something simple they can figure out, keep doing what you are doing or find a new group. Personally I would go with option three.

Kill them and raise them as zombies, while this won't make them any smarter. It will give you a group to run for at any time, since they will just hang out in your basement waiting to eat adventures.

Balance is over rated and subjective. As long as everyone has their moments to shine and are having fun. That is far more important than everyone being "balanced" IMHO.

Well it has been almost a week now and still nothing, so either the story has finally been resolved or he has given up trying to get me to comment.

Well like I said guys eventually the issue with Clark will be resolved, so then the reporter will have no reason to contact me.

On the bright side he has still not contacted me again since mid Feb so maybe he took the hint and finally dropped it.

Is it "To Kill a Mockingbird"? Sounds like Atticus. I was thinking of using a line from that one. Probably the 'Cmon out Boo' or the 'theres just one kind of folks' one. That movie is on my 'about me' page. Love it. Both Tom Robinson and Bob Ewell are so powerful as innocence and guilt in that courtroom.

You are correct, it was one of the few books I had to read in school I liked so i rented the movie once.

Like I said guys if he had done it more than he has, but once ever 2 weeks are so I don't think anyone is going to call stalking or harassment. Plus all of his posts and PM's have all been asking me about my "relationship" with Clark.

I did check into the laws and so far i don't think anyone would call it as more than anything other than overzealous "journalism", least not legally call it anything else. Any paper that would print his story i think is not going to care about complaints unless he actual breaks the law.

Plus I honestly think that is part of his goal to get a reaction so he can call it a over reaction to feed his story. Which is why i have choose to ignore it and him, by waiting it out.

Also I don't know if it is still going on, it started in mid Dec when he "broke the story" and the last contact was mid Feb, Which just so happened was the last time I posted here until last night.

Thanks for the support and concern guys, but I think the best thing I can do for Clark is just wait and not give the guy more things to fan the flames with.

Well the story is about Clark and him being a judge. I won't get into the details as I don't feel it is my place. Honestly i consider it one of those sleezy character assassination pieces. Banter posts between Clark and I are just being used, mine are not the only ones. He contacted me or made posts in threads I posted in like 4-5 times in 8 week spawn.

What he is doing is not effecting me persay beyond it makes me feel bad and depressed posts I made are being used against Clark. So I don't want to give him more ammo so to speak, that and as i said a big part of it. Is knowing how this is effecting Clark in RL has taken all the fun out of me being my alter ego and posting just for fun.

Which is why you will notice over the past couple of months most of my posts are about orders or commenting on upcoming products.

As far as the news outlet, I honestly don't recall off hand. It is a Washington local paper where Clark is a judge. At this point I am hoping he has stopped, it has been a month and so far nothing more. But then I have not posted since then but he has not sent me a PM either, so I am hoping for me at least it is over.

I thought about it but, honestly I think if Paizo would get involved it could just make things worse for Clark. Letting him claim something like a cover up or something like that.

Eventually the story will resolve it's self and eventually he will move onto another story. That much I am sure of. I am just surprised there for 2 months from the middle of Dec to the middle of Feb it was still happening which is why I have not posted until now. Kinda a test to see if he PM's me or posts in this thread.

But a big part of it, is honestly knowing posts I made in fun as my alter ego here on the forum is being used against Clark has taken the fun out of it.

1.) Uh...Clark? Kinder Surprises?

Clark Peterson, former owner of Necromancer games, than later launched Legendary games with some others. Was a superstar judge etc, posted here as Clark Peterson or Orcus the mascot for Necromancer games.. In RL he is a Judge and this reporter is doing stories about him in a negative manner and using some of the Banter between Clark and I from these forums in his stories.

The fact someone is using some harmless fun to try and ruin someone I consider a friends career just sours the whole experience.

Can we contact his boss at the newspaper/TV station/where ever and tell him to stop harassing you?

Well he doesn't do it enough that I think anyone would legally call harassing. He does it just enough to make me not want to post. Cause every time he posts in the same thread as me or sends me a PM it pretty much kills my mood. Which has just made me not want to post.

I honestly thought if I just ignored him he would eventually stop, but apparently not. Not to mention the whole thing going on with Clark and part of it is from our back and forth between our forum alter ego's has kinda put a damper on things for me. If that makes sense.

Well wish i could say it is over, but the very last time I posted on Paizo about 2 weeks ago he posted in the same thread I did again asking about Clark.

Which is a big reason I don't post much anymore.

Yes I stopped doing reviews for a variety of reasons. I am still on from time to time. The truth is the deal with Clark kinda bugged me, not to mention the guy writing the story contacted me here a few times and posted in threads I did. Trying to get me to comment and it left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth for posting.

Hey

I put this order on hold but I sent a email after getting back on the 2nd but never had a reply. So making a new forum thread about it, at this point I would like to start things again but since it is so close to the next months order coming out. Can you just ship this at the same time as the January one, to save a little on shipping please?

Actually been playing Fallout New Vegas, picked it up on Black Friday when Steam had it on a steep discount along with Skyrim. But playing FONV has really put me in the mood for a RPG like this. So while eventually is cool, the sooner the better. :)

I sent a email last week and got the shipping noticed yesterday about it going to be shipped soon. I sent a reply to that asking again for it to be held and got a automated response.

I understand you guys are completely swamped but I have to get this order held before it gets processed. We are going out of town next week and won't be back until after the New Year and don't want the box of books sitting out in the weather that whole time.

So to make positive the order gets held until we return, I am making a forum thread too.

Thanks in advance.

I was not complaining more making a observation. Was a first for me.

I don't think they have lost customer service which is still world class.

I do agree that perhaps they are a victum of their own success when it comes to monthly shipments. That part of the company seems to have steadily gotten slower over the last year or so. Actually i don't think it is slower as they keep getting more and more people subscribing giving them more and more work.

They might want to consider shipping the stuff out sooner but not giving access to the PDF's till x date. Since it takes awhile to ship they could mail the stuff sooner and it still not arrive much if at all before the street date. Anyways just a thought.

300 pages and 100 new pages for 10 bucks sounds reasonable enough. I will try an pick it up before the sale is over then.
