I'm sorry, but every time I see the headline I read "Intimate" build instead of "Intimidate". Then I giggle to myself.

I need a hobby. Oh...wait..

I absolutely don't get folks' love for kitsune or any other anthropomorphized race. But that's just me.

I still use a combination of real bookshelves and milk crates that I've had for over 30 years. Handiest things you could ever steal...er...acquire without authorization.

Cole,

Really? I kind of disliked 4 a lot in that.

I thought 4 was by far the best season of "Enterprise". The Temporal Cold War and the Xindi stuff was just so much clap trap to me. But the finale of Season 4 was a mess. A complete mess that I was embarrassed to have watched.

I'm actually pretty jazzed about it being a prequel. The more the different series advanced it seemed nothing was impossible, even time travel became no problem. And the way Janeway and the Voyager crew totally emasculated the Federation's greatest threat, the Borg, was a total waste of time for me.

I get inspiration from a large variety of sources, such as metal songs, movies, nature or history shows or articles, and other such things. My pregame notes sometimes take up 3 pages and up as I rehash and rewrite the ideas of things I'd like to have happen. Then once I've arrived at what I want to do I go to d20pfsrd.com and print off the monsters and treasure I want so I don't have to have stack of books for encounters and rewards.

I've run adventures with as few as 3 lines of notes before. I'm a very flexible GM, and if my players don't follow the plot lines I have set before them I can improvise pretty well and still have them encounter the NPCs and critters I want them to, just in a different location or time than I intended. And the beauty is they never know the difference.

I, for one, hated THAC0.

I get tired of people wanting to play Jedi or Sith. If you want to play one of those, play the bloody Star Wars game.

I also get so so so very tired of the "this class" and "that class" sucks threads. If you don't like them, don't play them and shut up about it.

This thread reminded me I have two 2nd Edition netbook lists, one called 10,000 Magical Bursts and one called 10,000 Chaotic Bursts, the funniest one is rolling 0000 (10,000) which says "The nearest star explodes in a massive supernova."

During last night's game with my son and his friends:

The BBEG was about to throw a ricochet hammer at my son's character. I describe the "wind up" and just before I roll the d20 my son shouts "Stop!" I responded with "But it's hammer time..."

This is from a Facebook private message conversation I had with one of my players last night.

Him: "Oh! We're gaming tomorrow? I forgot all about it. I may miss it, because my daughter is going to the release of the new Potterverse book."

Me: "But you said, and I quote, "Yah mo be there for reelz."

Him: "You'd trust a guy who talks like that?"

Wasn't he a commodore by the time he appeared on TAS?

I believe he was. I'd have to watch the episode again. It's on Netflix so I might do that later.

I thought about him, too. But I'm not sure ST:TAS is considered canon.

I used to drive 100 miles from my hometown to Waldenbooks in the late 70s and early 80s. It was the closest one to me. Like you, I spent tons of money there on scifi stuff (specifically Star Trek books). Bought a lot of 2nd edition D&D stuff there, too. Sad that they're gone.

Yep, they had a decent library of older movies that aren't available from Redbox and larger than most libraries.

I say hack him into sauce at the first sign of aggression toward you. Use every paladin ability you have access to.

I'm playing in a weird mashup of Call of Cthulhu d20 and Vampire: The Masquerade. We're vampires during WWII fighting Nazis and creatures from beyond time and space. We're having a blast with it.

I just ditched my cable after having it for only a year. The only 3 or 4 shows I watched I can catch on Hulu now and watch at my leisure.

This one might get deleted, and it's ok if it does, but it happened during last night's game. I'm a player in a weird mashup of Call of Cthulhu d20 and Vampire: The Masquerade where we play vampires fighting Nazis and their other worldly overlords. While interrogating a captured German major, my character (with glowing eyes and razor sharp fangs) asks him does he speak English. He answers back with "Ja! I speak English!" Terrified, he continues with "In fact, I love English food! I love to stuff my mouth with spotted dick!".

No one could breathe for 5 minutes because of the laughter.

The later bestiaries are, in my opinion, all pretty good, though they have increasing numbers of outsiders in each one, it seems. I rarely use outsiders in my campaign, so they're of little use to me. But overall, I'd say they're all worth the money. And like BV210 said, they're available at the PRD or d20pfsrd.com.

Talk about whatever you want Cal, it's all good with me. :-)

lol thanks. I'm from Arkansas, where there's little else to talk about at family gatherings like today (Independence Day for those from other countries who might not know) aside from the Razorbacks (though the Arkansas State University Red Wolves are probably just as good though they don't get the press), huntin', fishin', muddin', four wheelin', and church. I've been married into my wife's family for 25 years and I still feel totally out of place at any holiday gathering.

The opossums, also known as possums, are marsupial mammals of the order Didelphimorphia. The largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere, it comprises 103 or more species in 19 genera. Opossums originated in South America, and entered North America in the Great American Interchange following the connection of the two continents. Their unspecialized biology, flexible diet, and reproductive habits make them successful colonizers and survivors in diverse locations and conditions.

Being from the South (Arkansas, to be exact) possums among the most common wild mammals to be found.

For the last 15 years or so it's whenever we can get together. Sometimes it's every 2 weeks, sometimes 6 weeks or more pass between sessions. We're all in our late 40s to early 50s now and family obligations, health, and regular day to day life get in the way. That's a far cry from 5 nights a week from my college days.

Cool!!! 10 years of DMing/GMing is a LONG time! Have a blast!

Clerics are fun. They can be the lynchpin that holds the party together.

In the only PF game where I'm an actual player (and only about 3 times a year at that) I play the cleric. I chose the class on purpose, not because no one else wanted to play it. I love clerics.

Generally I start my campaigns at level 3, to reflect some experience in the adventuring world and to give the players a slight edge. I did, however, start my current city based campaign at level 1 and most of the players are nearly level 13 now, with everyone committed to going all the way to 20th.

Ok, here's another question. If a divine spellcaster begins to follow the Mythic hero, does he or she have to give up the former deity followed, or does the Mythic hero's spells and domains simply stack with the old ones?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

The text for this ability reads:

"You can grant divine spells to those who follow your cause, allowing them to select you as their deity for the purposes of determining their spells and domains. Select two domains upon taking this ability. These domains must be alignment domains matching your alignment if possible, unless your alignment is neutral. You grant access to these domains as if you were a deity. Creatures that gain spells from you don't receive any spells per day of levels higher than your tier; they lose those spell slots. In addition, you can cast spells from domains you grant as long as their level is equal to or less than your tier. Each day as a spell-like ability, you can cast one spell of each level equal to or less than your tier (selecting from those available to you from your divine source domains). If you're a cleric or you venerate a deity, you may change your spell domains to those you grant others. At 6th tier and 9th tier, you can select this ability again, adding one domain and two subdomains to your list each time and adding their spells to the list of those that you can cast."

I'm assuming only a divine caster can cast spells granted by the user of this ability. What do you guys think?

I never liked their cover of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida". Of course, not being a Slayer fan probably has something to do with that. Though I do love me some Iron Butterfly.

I would rule that if the druid had never seen a polar bear, terror bird, or megaraptor he couldn't change into one. Now if the druid was from a region where these existed, they'd definitely be on the list. It's a houserule, but one I stick by.

The weight of a standard gold bar is 27.33732 pounds. However, gold is one of the most malleable of metals, and you can have gold plated armor by having gold hammered and shaped over your regular plate for significantly less weight.

Panic.

This happened to me at a radio station I once worked at. I worked the over night shift and was reading Lovecraft for the first time and a storm knocked out the power. Every creak and bump and moaning of the wind kept me very, very alert.

I enjoy the silence and darkness. I'm something of a nyctophiliac and love the night and darkness, so it's actually quite relaxing for me. I have LED flashlights at different places in my house, so I just use the cellphone to find and keep one of those handy so that I don't use up cellphone battery lighting the area if necessary.

I suffer from major social anxiety, bipolar depression type 2, and treatment resistant clinical depression. All of this started only a few years ago, and it's made me unable to hold a job (so I draw a gubment check) and do Pathfinder stuff all the time.

I'm ok around my friends (most of the time) but can no longer go to cons or large gatherings. I can manage a concert if I'm so tranked up on Xanax it would stop a rhino, and even going to the movies is hard (usually a lesser dose of Xanax). It helps that at a concert or a movie there is some singular thing to concentrate on, like the band or the movie. But something like a con, with so many people moving about and bumping into me, would send me into either a panic or a rage. There's a small con near my home town in a couple of weeks and I was asked to run a game there, but had to decline. I felt bad turning my friend down but it would really be for the best.
