I don't use the Bestiary rules for hobgoblins. In my setting, they're about 6 to 6.5 feet tall.


I have one of the first generation Kindles, and pdfs are not really it's thing.


Is that a Dennis Beauvais cover? Wow!

Really wish I had the cash for this and the other 3 issues!


I agree with Kryzbyn. It's there to make the DM's job easier. Personally I'd prefer to not use the transparency rules, but since I only have one psionic character in my games I'd rather not run him off by imposing the non-transparency option.


Good grief...that sucks.

I have a bounty hunter I created waaaaay back in 1985 using the NPC class offered in a Dragon Magazine. I was looking at the playtest slayer just this morning and was wondering if I could recreate him Paizo style. Now I think I can with the bounty hunter archetype, just from what you mentioned here. But I need this now!! I was going to use him as an NPC antagonist in some upcoming games (he's gonna teach those murdering hobos a lesson).

sigh.....

Just give him some bounty hunterish weapons, make up a couple of combat maneuvery abilities, and then if this guy survives to become a recurring NPC, update him to the ACG version in August!

Already workin' on it... LOL.. To fully round him out and make him as close to the original as I can, I'm going to add one level of the psionic Wilder class to him and give him a couple of the Martial Maneuver feats from Dreamscarred's "Path of War" book. This'll teach those meddling kids a lesson.

That sounds reasonable. Thanks!

How much, if any, would a Caryatid Column's CR be increased if 4 more arms (giving it a total of 6 attacks per round) were added?

There are too many folks to name on the boards who I feel are great contributors to the many subjects discussed here. I have noticed a small number haven't been on as much lately, though, such as Klaus van der Kroft and Deathquaker. I've been missing their insights.


I just realized I never sent you my mailing addie. *bangs head on desk*. I PM'd you with it, just in case.

Ya know, I may be one of the few 80s gamers who did not like the Dragonlance books. At all.

Player Says: "I forgot my character sheet at home"

Player Means : "The single thing I am responsible for, yeah I didn't do that, oh hey is that pizza? Cool I haven't eaten today."

OMG if I had a nickel for every time this one player forgets or loses her sheet!


Thanks!


Yeah, my group hollered for Crit Charts until I told and then proved to them they went both ways. That hushed them up.

Variant Rule X must apply across the board!


Will it be for sale here at Paizo?

I love that my nephew (who lives with me) works in a Greek restaurant.

I do not love that he got fired 3 days later for falling asleep and missing his shift.


I nearly always play fighters or soulknives. and always human. My latest character is a cleric, though. Curious to see how I do with it.


That's too bad.


Will there be rules on designing your own classes? I am so excited about this book.


Player says: "Natural 20!" before snatching up the die.
Player means: C'mon. We all know what this means.


GM says: "So you're really going to challenge one of your own party members to a fight?"
GM means: "Please kill this annoying s.o.b.'s character so he'll get mad and go home."

Went through my head on a recent game night.

Every. Damned. Time.


Friend playing an unarmed fighter this past weekend saying, "Be still so I can punch a f*^#hole in your head."


What are MAD and SAD classes?

I've known too many GM's who if they saw a tendency for a person to play super characters with an Achilles heel would ruthlessly exploit it whenever they could. Often for weeks of real time on end without any breaks to play to the character's strong points.

Sounds like they're compensating for something.

I personally can't stand having stats below 10 on my characters. So while it might be optimal to drop my warrior's Cha and Int to 7, I will never do it. Other people will. So our cookie cutters will be different.

While there's a certain romance to having PCs have average or less than average numbers in some abilities and having them overcome these drawbacks to become heroes, I prefer my heroes to be on the "superhero" side of things. Like TOZ, I don't like stats below ten.

You don't actually have to buy the books: all the main rulebooks are on paizo's PRD, which is linked on the paizosite under the 'pathfinder roleplaying game', and the contents of other books are on both the 'archives of nethys' and 'pathfinde srd'. Just google those two, and you can look up everything.

If you want the books themselves, they can be bought as cheap pdf's.

It can all be found on d20pfsrd, as well.
The dude stated that he cannot bring his PC with him and that his iPad is a piece of crap. Several times.

You don't have to take it with you. Print off what you need.

What you did was within your rights as the GM. I, on the other hand, encourage the use of other sourcebooks, even 3PP as long as I'm familiar enough with it. It's my players who balk at using non core races and classes.

I just create character sheets from "blank paper" as it were. I find myself writing all the same stuff (no extra work, really), and wind up with a perfectly custom sheet that is so easy to read, because it contains no extraneous slots, charts, lines, or any other messiness. That is, not only do I get to add unlimited information where applicable, I also get to exclude any information that is mere clutter.

I do the same. I haven't found another entity's sheet that I've truly been comfortable reading. So I just make my own.

I really like the sheets from here.

I love the layout, but when I printed them lots of the lines didn't show up.

I've never used point buy. I'm too much of a dice freak.

i saved all the files separately from the computer and readjusted the computer to Factory settings

Care to share how someone might invoke this process, and for what operating system you're talking about?

While I'm not aware of any way to "reset" Windows (save by doing a reinstall/reimage or a system restore to a specific point), most web browsers do contain such a function. I've found that if I uninstall WSA Rocket from Control Panel-> Programs & Features, and then reset all of the installed browsers that this does the trick.

IE: Internet Options-> Advanced-> click the "Reset..." button at the bottom.
Chrome: Settings-> Show Advanced Settings-> click "Reset browser settings" at the bottom of the page.
FireFox: Help-> Troubleshooting Information-> click "Reset FireFox"

Well, I've given it a shot. It's worked so far. I'm cautiously optimistic! Thanks!

Oh, and the quote of the night; "Hold still so I can punch a F****hole in your head!"


I'm just gonna make a list of banned words to frustrate them and for my own twisted glee... lol


None of them are black people. They're white suburban kids who desperately want to sound street.. lol.


We managed to get a small group together for a one off game last night. Felt good to have grownup company.. lol


I've never liked the "official" character sheets. Too much clutter.

How about inviting someone new to join your grognard group? Make the switch gradually... start with your family and their friends.

I have recently started GMing for a group of four, two parents and two kids, and it working pretty well.

My son and nephew sometimes sits in with my merry band of Old Ones. They're the only ones they have any interest in allowing in the circle. We're a pretty clannish outfit, I've learned.


Thanks, Jeremy. I'll look for material on ACT at my library the next time I muster the courage to leave my burrow! LOL


We've managed to start gaming at my house again (when we can get together) and as the buyer of all things PF in our group, I don't have to cart a wagonload of books to the FLGS every time.

Have you considered asking any of your older game buddies to join you for a game in another group, even just a one shot? Maybe just one familiar face will give you a comforting anchor with a little slack so you can venture out a little bit.
I've brought it up, but the response was a resounding "negatory, Ghost Rider". Their view is if we don't have time to play in our own reindeer games we sure don't have time to play in someone else's.
