One rank never hurts.

My clerics tend to leave int at 10. I put ranks into every class skill, then bump the ones no one else uses (like Heal). There are usually other characters with way more skills, anyway.

Heal-bot is an under-appreciated role. Channeling works well, even in combat. My PFS half orc cleric of Sarenrae was referred to as the "kick-ass cleric."

He is, too. Last I played him, he was 11th level and utterly ridiculous. Always welcomed at any table, and sometimes the only guy with any melee chops.

It's fine. Your sink and pot will be OK. It's just Vicks, not Valvoline.

I'll leave such judgement to you, milady, and abide by it.

Telsyn trusts Missea. He feels like he has to.

Very well.

Telsyn helps with the hand tying and looking for valuables. They can pull the thugs behind the cart.

He'll cast detect magic on the off chance that they've got anything magical, and look out for more bandits. perception: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

Thank the gods for our sharp-eyed cleric!

No rope, here. Let's just take whatever they have and be gone before they wake up. Maybe they'll rethink their choices in life.

He looks down, as if saying that much wasn't easy.

So, we can conclude that it's irresponsible to live on a budget larger than what you would earn on minimum wage. It's irresponsible to have sex without making sure that the woman has taken her pill or checked whatever other BC she might be on AND the guy better double up on the condom, just to be safe. Buying a house that you can't buy with cash is also irresponsible. Buying a car is also very questionable, even if you can pay it with cash, because you might have been able to buy a cheaper (but probably also more unreliable, but that's somehow not the point) one.

Sodas, energy drinks and jerky are right out of the question!
In other words, anyone living a better life than Andrew R is Doing it Wrong(tm)!
has nothing to do with a better life, i lack the jealousy so many are afflicted by when talking about social class, i just don't want to be the one paying for it. it has everything to do with be responsible, not party like its the end of the world then demand someone else pay the piper for you. live within your means, try to have a plan, minimize risk. this is not rocket science but sadly most people these days are too damn dumb. wich would be fine if people like me didn't have to bail them out

R seems to have an aversion to acknowledging privilege, let alone its effects in society, given his extreme view of the less fortunate.

Gore never came to power, so we'll never know, but he's kind of a weenie and couldn't hold Clinton's used toilet paper, so I don't think he would

have been much better than Bush or Obama, to be frank.

I'm pretty sure Gore would have probably heeded the warnings that Bush ignored, and 9-11 would likely have been foiled.

Bush and co. were planning to invade Iraq before they even got into office, and Gore wasn't involved with PNAC. So, if Gore hadn't been able to stop 9-11, he still wouldn't have invaded Iraq, and millions of lives would not have been shattered.

He would instead have used the world's sympathy to get their help in going after the terrorists, and would have succeeded.

Gore isn't Bush, and that alone makes him the better man.

I was at the grocery store and reached into a box of Halloween candy to get some bags of it for the kids. Sure enough, there was a wasp in there, and it stung me!

I knew Cosmo was behind it! It's the only explanation that makes sense.

Mr. Brewer,

We regret to inform you that, due to your inappropriate love of blowing people up, which all wizards know is suboptimal, we have decided to revoke your membership in the Society.

One trick ponies are always susceptible to meltdown, when the altering of their one trick comes to light.

I think people look at the AT, and the ability to add sneak attack damage to spells is all they see.

The AT is anything but a one-trick pony. It's a spellcasting skillmonkey. Adding a few d6 to a blast spell is fun when you can pull it off, but if that's all you focus on, you're missing what sorcerers and wizards can do with maxed-out acrobatics, stealth, etc.

"MacGuyver with spells" is a good analogy. "Flying, invisible James Bond" works, too, once you have the levels for it.

My Skull and Shackles trickster

Spoiler:
was able to cast Alter Self and turned himself into a sahuagin, swam to an enemy boat, cast Invisibility on himself underwater (not a problem in the form of a sahuagin), then climbed aboard and sabotaged the ship so they couldn't chase us. A typical wizard could attempt the same, but I doubt his stealth and disable device skills would be very good. This was at 5th or 6th level, IIRC, so he wasn't really a trickster, yet.

He's also our go to guy for ship repairs and knowledge checks. He definitely pulls his own weight in our group.

I don't think this ruling makes that much difference, unless you play a low-skilled sorcerer trickster built all around blasting.

I cant even say what it was called in my neighborhood.

When I was a kid, we called it "smear the queer," which, if you think about it, may have some historical veracity. It's apparently what the Spartans did. :)

I hope the kids are calling it something a little more groovy these days, like "tackle the perfectly accepted person, whatever their sexual orientation, and take the ball, yo."

I added "yo" to make it the "shiznit," yo.

PFS sits down a group of adventurers of disparate levels, and asks them, without any consideration of what they can actually do, to go and handle a task.

Bonus if they do it, no cookie if they don't. It's supposed to take about 4 hours.

PFS isn't PF. It's built to accommodate random characters through one episode of action/adventure, not write a trilogy.

Did someone already say ranger/wizard? Full BAB, all good saves, lots of skills and skill points, solid combat, an animal companion, some divine spells, and amazing cosmic powers.

Sorry, missed this earlier. I don't think the AP goes to 20th, but the GM says he'll go as long as we want. Personally, I'm enjoying it a lot, so I hope we do.

20th level pirates! Arrr!

For me, I ain't having fun when the story doesn't matter.
That doesn't invalidate my statement.

Nor his.

"It works for my build" is an honest answer, but it's fine for the GM to want a little explanation. Some players may be making a bad choice based on some impulse.

Or, maybe, it's a good idea you'll want to discuss a bit. Sharing your visions for your characters at level-up is a great time for the party.

When the GM announces that everyone's leveled, it's good to discuss things before you reconvene. Leveling changes the mechanics. Talking about it makes the characters feel more real, IMO.

Are you a millionaire?

.

I have learned that money isn't important because rich people use
money for power, but power doesn't come from being rich.

A percentage of profits should be free to individuals. It isn't a matter
of whether you want to be cheating other people or even consider
yourself as cheating others.

Individuals do not own their work. That's why communism and capitalism
are the same. Rich individuals own the corporations, and then cheat
their workers. They do not see people's families.

Corporations just follow the rules set before them by the individuals
in government. It just goes on and on. They still fire people when they
need to, regardless of whether the person could do the job or not.

.

So, you're NOT a millionaire?

I know Lisa and Vic are, but you can't tell because they hardly ever wear top hats.

Pensions are shattered, factory jobs are gone. Lots of them tried to play by the rules, but the rules changed.

Worker bees are a dime a dozen. Their needs are not a part of the global equation.

According to Forbes, there are 10 million people with more than 1 million USD in the world. So technically that would be 99.86% if we take the latest official world population figure from the UN.

Like everyone else in the world that isn't a millionaire, my long series of bad choices began with picking the wrong parents. That one alone virtually ensures you will never become a millionaire, or for that matter even seriously upgrade from the class into which you were born. I compounded that error by being born in one of the most income immobile, stratified societies in the developed world in a period when such inequalities and lack of mobility were on the upswing, and then, not quite satisfied yet, I further chose to be born in a mostly-empty hinterland of said nation thereby depriving me of the numerous advantages I could have accrued from simply being born in an upscale school district or somewhere with access to several very good universities.

Some, trying to duck their personal responsibility for their lot in lives, will say that all of that stuff is luck or not really choices. But we know differently. That's just a story losers tell to console themselves. The truth is that if we really deserved it, we would have picked the correct parents to start with. Entirely our fault for not reading the pamphlets thoroughly.

It's also possible to be born with the natural ability to become an outstanding A-list athlete, entertainer, or become well-known from a Youtube video, and capitalize on your 15 minutes that way. I'm willing to bet that George Zimmerman has at least a million in his defense fund.

99.9% of the world are not, and never will be so rich. Most people work hard just to stay fed, if they can get food.
