  • I think younger players and players that started on 3.x have a much different play style than gamers that started earlier.
  • I greatly agree with this. I think it has a lot to do with the big changes in mechanics from earlier editions.

    60. You want to add to your jar of random lost dice.

    Guys, please take the animal cruelty vs when animals attack debate to private messaging or drop it. This isn't the thread for that.

    On the other hand, one of the worst was going with a family to supervise several kids seeing one of those animated dinosaur movies - I think it was "Land Before Time." There's a sequence where the mama dinosaur dies. Maybe half a dozen kids in the theater are crying, or asking their parents repeatedly, "What happened to his mommy?" Crazy people, thinking it's okay to bring little kids to that kind of movie...

    When Ash died in the first Pokemon movie there were as many crying adults as there were children.

    45. Someone new to try out your houserules on BECAUSE THEY'RE BETTER!

    Humans. I play Humans nearly exclusively. Even the NPCs and BBEGs are Human. I've created one NPC lately that wasn't human, but a variant on the psionic Elan race modified to fit my campaign.

    I love Humans!

    I like giving players new options (up to a point) and I've always been a psionics fan, at least going back to 2e. They've been a part of my setting for over 20 years. I have a psion telepath in my current game and she (played by a guy, btw) takes the place of the primary spellcaster in most groups. It works out fine for everyone involved.

    Having said that, be prepared for this thread to dissolve in a flame war of psionics lovers and haters.

    1. Fresh ideas and outlooks on old ways of doing things.

    I've been a Lovecraft fan since I first heard of the Mythos in the original 1e Deities and Demigods book. I'm reading his complete collection on my Kindle for the second time, with some stories having been read many times. I also loved the Harry Potter books, and I give them a great amount of credit for getting kids to read when they might not otherwise have done so.

    I love new feats and new classes.

    2. (If you're new to the group) Constantly talking about how much better the last game you played in was and how great your characters were compared to the those of the rest of the group.

    Larry Elmore Art

    His work graced the Dragonlance book covers and many, many Dragon Magazine covers and interiors. He's not a bad artist, but I just didn't care much for his style.

    My only real gripe is with infants and young toddlers who tend to cry and scream. We took our son to his first theatrical movie when he was 3 and he was perfectly behaved. But he understood from the get go that if he acted up we'd leave immediately.

    Do you enforce ALL stats I wonder? Or is this attack on low mental stats simply hypocrisy. In a game where a tiny waif thin halfling can have a 21 Str do you balk at the tall well built human man with a Str of 7? Or do you enforce that the halfling is a rolling ball of pure muscle?

    In my group it's never really come up, though no one in my group has a single digit ability score.

    My favorite 3PPs, in no particular order, are Kobold Press, Dreamscarred Press, Rogue Genius Games, and Rite Publishing.

    How about Cameroceras, a straight shelled cephalopod whose shell was 30 feet long?

    I use Hero Lab for PFRPG exclusively those days.

    I take it for granted that it generates kosher characters, and (almost ever) don't check for conformity with any Paizo books.

    I'm extremely lazy this way in my character creation endeavor, and I'm prepared to be mightily shunned for it.

    P.S. I don't care that Paizo rulebooks supersede Hero Lab. I wallow in laziness with great delight.

    I'd love to use Herolab. Just can't afford it.

    Don't think of it as necrophilia. Think of it as post mortem love.

    I don't care for the sci-fi aspects of Golarion. Granted, I GM in a homebrewed world, but I just think if there are going to be other planets or high tech they belong in a pulp or sci-fi themed game.

    No. You should be concerned if it gets IN your bed.

    All this talk about condiments has me wanting a mayo and tomato sandwich.

    I like the Unchained classes better.


    2 people marked this as a favorite.

    I don't see this class really meshing well with a party of adventurers. While it has a ton of options, it seems too narrowly focused, at least to me.

    I've never tried sriracha. Never had an urge to.

    There are people on the boards who only speak of it in the most scathing of terms.

    I don't think the Advanced Race Guide is a bad book.

    I love trying new foods. And I'm so desperate sometimes to be a player instead of the GM I'd probably play in nearly any game offered.

    I miss beholders.

    Geez...and all I said was they should use prayerbooks......


    1 person marked this as a favorite.

    I never liked that Clerics can access EVERY spell, even just using Core material. Add in the subsequent releases and it just becomes silly that they would even know to pray for most of them. I believe they should have a prayer book with their spells contained therein.

    That would've deserved a choke-slam.

    My group and our game style is pretty laid back, but damn. I wish they'd update their damned characters before they get here for the game. They could at least think about the campaign that much.

    My adventuring wizards do not wear robes, but the appropriate outfit for the climate and situation.

    I like musicals-except for all that singing and dancing.

    Playing a character being sought by bounty hunters in the old Boot Hill Wild West RPG my character, Slim Whitaker, opens his bedroom door only to have some varmint shove a Colt revolver into his face.

    "Slim Whitaker", he says, "I've been after you nigh on 6 months now. $5,000 dead, 10,000 alive. I'm not a greedy man." And he pulls the trigger. His gun jams and my character pistol whips him to death with his own gun and escapes to once again ride as the Scourge of the Old West.

    For us, the best part of channeling energy was that it hit everyone - a couple of uses goes a long way for five PCs, two cohorts, and an animal companion.

    A channel energy burst can be the difference in saving a character or watching him bleed out while you're too far away to help otherwise.

    Along the lines of my puzzlement at the popularity of the Tengu, I don't get what's so special about Kitsune.

    I still love the song "Total Eclipse of the Heart". Not exactly a gaming confession, but a confession nonetheless.

    That's something I've always done my best to do. I GM pretty flexibly and can fairly quickly adjust the game around the party.
    I just pretty firmly believe that it's not always the DM's job to adapt to a poor party composition. Everyone wants to be a barbarian? Fine, but don't expect the dragon to fight on your terms.

    I guess that's where you and I differ. I don't expect the party to adhere to any particular array of classes. I'm not going to expect anyone to play a certain role, unless it goes against the my world's makeup (for instance, I don't allow the anthropomorphic races as player character choices). Now, the party might regret not having someone play a healer and they can change that if they wish (introduce a new character, multiclass, etc) but the choice is entirely up to them.

    Vive la difference!

    I like Catfolk.

    You lost me at Catfolk.

    I make my own character sheets. I really dislike the official ones.

    I don't think dragons should have spells unless they take levels in a spellcasting class.
