Judas Priest's first live LP, "Unleashed in the East".

I was so excited about Horror Adventures I forgot this was coming out. Curse you, Paizo! I may have to go w/out household utilities but I must have them both!

Attacks of Opportunity. Having fenced in college (and been involved in a few free for all goof off sessions) I can tell you if you turn to stab at someone moving through your reach your primary opponent can get an AoO on you as quickly as you strike the other guy.

A huge loss to the community, his friends, and his family.

No, but knowing me I'd forget and get charged. I know it's not much, but I live on a tight, tight budget.

I'm in my early 50s now, and songs I loved in the 70s and 80s are being played on the Muzak in Walgreens. I left so sad.

Having played with my core group of players (and some of the occasional ones) for nearly 30 years in some cases, I really don't know what I'd do if faced with problems like these. I've seldom played with anyone new.

A Paladin I was playing a few years back was killed in combat by some sort of primate. I remember saying "My brains were just eaten by monkeys. I hope they enjoyed the meager snack that made me think coming on this adventure was a good idea."

Not one of my PCs, but this happened in a d20 Call of Cthulhu game set in WWII. The PCs were the last survivors of the crew of a freighter in the Atlantic where the crew had been picked off one by one by pulsating alien "thing". It had us cornered against the rail of the bow, we were out ammo, and were just about to try to rush past it to make it to a lifeboat when a German U-Boat surfaced. My friend Dave shouts, "It's the Nazis! We're saved!".

That is very M*A*S*H of you, did you have housefly jockeys?

LOL No, but that would've been great! And the races may have been inspired my M*A*S*H, I can't remember.

Roach rodeo, guaranteed to be a huge hit, coming soon to an venue near you!

When I was a freshman in college we'd catch cockroaches in the dorm, paint numbers on their backs with liquid paper, then race them.

Richard Pett's "Whispering Homunculus" collection has wonderful ideas for so many things from village festivals to dungeon crawling. Each is a list with usually 50 choices in each, and some range from the "Dang, what a great idea!" to the "that's so silly I have to use it".

Rotten cats! (I'm sure they're actually very sweet. I miss being able to have a cat, but my dogs would hurt it).

Got the download! Thanks, Berik, and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I can't play w/out a full, matching set. I have two collections of dice, full and partial sets. They are kept separately.

And Netflix has a sequel coming out!

I had a parakeet that lived to be nearly 15. There, that and the screech owl wraps up my exotic pets.. lol

Unless you count the hatchling snapping turtles I caught once as a kid and took to school to sell to other kids.

Back in the 80s I played an assassin that was sent to kill the Thundercats. I boiled Snarf alive in a pot of soup.

It wasn't really a pet, but when I was about 15 I rescued a screech owl that had been caught in a fur trap. It's leg was broken, but I made a splint out of a large drinking straw and electrical tape and kept it in a cage, feeding it birds that I shot daily. After about 2 weeks it seemed to regain the use of its claws on the broken leg, so I cut off the splint and let it go. It hung out in one of our barns for several weeks before it disappeared forever.

And if you've never heard a screech owl, it's a eerie sound. And try sleeping with that going on next to your bed.

Screech Owl Call

You'll have to put "screech owl" in the search bar, evidently, and look for the Eastern Screech Owl in the list that comes up. Click on the link called "B Song".

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I'm too lazy and sleepy on pain medication to look for the post. Will there be a print compilation of all the PoW stuff in one book? Pleeeeeeze?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

After acquiring several of the books over the years I just wish I had the chance to even play it.

I agree; Paizo's customer service is great. But let me throw a shout out to Dreamscarred Press', as well. I had an Ultimate Psionics book come apart and they sent me a new one within the week. Great folks in both companies!

Mine started yesterday, when my wife's pickup (while I was driving it) got hit by a van backing up w/out looking where he was going.

Today I got some good news, but I also discovered my discalculia won't permit me to put a slip cover on a sofa. I tried for over an hour to figure it out, but I finally gave up and drank a shot whiskey.

Please tell me that there's a way for me to be a little old school, a little new at the same time. Do any of you guys play the same way? Help me out here.

I'm afraid we're a lot alike on this one, my friend. Even back in the day I used to lament how every fighter was basically alike, though the equipment might differ. But there wasn't anything besides that and the stat numbers to differentiate them. I like things a lot better with PF.

It's the only creative outlet I really have now, as well as giving me time to share with my friends. And I think it's also become a habit, I've done it for 30 years now. W/out D&D, PF, or Call of Cthulhu, I'd do nothing but watch tv. People tell me I should be a writer, but I HATE writing so that's out. So, like I said, this is my sole creative outlet.

Edit: And like some of the others mentioned here, my childhood predates the internet, home computers, and cable tv. We had 3 channels and we had to go outside to turn the antenna to pick one of them up. I grew up on a farm which was half field, half woods, so I spent uncounted hours exploring and "cataloging" insects, rodents, snakes, lizards, etc. We played army with sticks for guns, hide and seek in the hills behind the house, explored caves, hunted, and fished. I was also a voracious reader of scifi and fantasy, so my imagination was fueled by many, may things.

We have zero poisonous creatures. Okay, there are three, two species of snake and one spider, but they're all so rare that I've never even heard of anyone being killed by one. Ever.

Because no one lived to tell the tale.

I hope to be able to help out soon. I'm in some pretty rough straits myself, but that won't stop me from helping someone else if possible.

When my son was about 7 I managed a video store (yeah, one of those recently deceased things) and he asked if he could go to work there. I told him there were certain requirements, like age and so forth, that kept me from hiring him. His response was, after looking at the movies organized by category and said, "Well, those bozos you have working for you now don't even know their alphabet. I at least have that on them".

I guess I'm just getting old and tired. I have AWESOME game ideas but recently when game night arrives they're lame as hell. This past weekend I had a great idea for a city that was being invaded by Kytons. The players seemed to enjoy it, but I didn't. I used to run really, really great games (yes, I'm bragging, but I feel it's true), but it's just not the case anymore.

I keep my mismatched and incomplete dice sets in a large glass candy jar. My full sets are kept in a small wooden chest. The ones I currently use are kept in an old fanny pack from the 80s. I swap them out with new dice from the chest every so often.

No, I'm not weird about my dice. Why do you ask?

1980s Mayfair Games DC Heroes. Had so much fun playing that.

John Williams' iconic "Imperial March" theme didn't actually make an appearance until Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the second Star Wars film to be released.

I actually knew that piece of trivia.. lol.. I still have the original vinyl lp of the score for New Hope. Bought it in 1977 and it's in perfect shape.

Here's another pain point of mine: Campaigns that end without an official Ending. I like a campaign that has a beginning, a middle, and an end, like a movie or a book. But I've been involved in far too many that were canceled mid-season like Firefly.

I hate those, too, and I've nearly always been the DM. Granted, I had to end one because of health reasons, but others have been cancelled "mid season" (heh) by lack of time to get together, the campaign spiraling out of control, or loss of players. There's been several times I've been a player that someone started a game and we'd get 3 sessions in and they would just stop running. That's even more frustrating.

How do you folks feel about a setting when you're a player?

I still have a hard time turning off the logic part of my brain. Like I said earlier, when I first began playing in the 80s the whole "Monster A-Go Go" theme didn't phase me. I was just too excited by the game to care. But as time when on I wanted less of a monster dormitory and more of a monster lair; with just the one or two creatures that made total sense to be there. At least sense to me. I suppose it's totally subjective, but even as a player I no longer have fun with the monster in every room and trap around every corner style of play and neither does anyone in my group.

My guys have hinted about wanting to do a one shot where they are all elite members of the city's guard. Sort of a Pathfinder SWAT team, but with wacky hijinks thrown in.

Well, it is Autumn and the Paladins are all falling from the trees.

From a recent game-"It's the peanut butter you DON'T see that you should worry about."

I suffer from chronic pain, severe anxiety, and times (sometimes weeks) of deep depression. There are times, and they are more frequent than I like and I've had to either cancel a game at the last minute or just end one suddenly because things got too much to bear. The anxiety attacks sometimes escalate into full scale panic attacks and I freak out. I've been playing with most of my players for nearly 30 years at this point and I should be totally at ease with them, but my problems are relatively recent (beginning about 8 years ago) and they are understanding, though I'm sure they're often quite frustrated by my wacky antics.

I once barred from entering my friend's vehicle by an elk once. It wouldn't move and just stood there and shook its mighty antlers at me.

The game I GM'd last night stank on ice. I just wasn't feelin' it and the chronic pain I have was so distracting. Plus I'm getting bored with the campaign, and I just couldn't get my head into the game. One of the players drove nearly 3 hours to be here, and I've felt pretty crappy about my performance as a GM.

If you've ever swung a whip, and I have, two handed would be really awkward and darn near impossible to do. I still have the bullwhip my dad used on the farm and I even tried it after reading the OP. It's a handy way to lose an eye.

Ok...downloaded those, as well. Great stuff! I hope to be able to purchase some of the other goodies I saw, as well!

My Santa came early with new tires for my vehicle.. lol.

If I had a laptop computer PDFs might be a viable option. But since I'm not lugging my PC into my living room every game night and I don't like using my Kindle for them much, it's hardbacks for me. And granted, I do prefer hardback books. Maybe the revisions will make it to the SRD or d20PFSRD.
