I doubt it, really. Using a whip properly makes it a DEX based weapon. It doesn't really matter how strong you are as long as you can hit the target.

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.

Natural Healing: The HP gained form natural healing (1 per level for a night of rest) completely changes the dynamic of the game for a low level party without a healer, and can grind things to a halt. I don't like this. Instead characters who rest a night roll their hit dice + Con Mod for each level. So a 2nd level Fighter with a CON of 14 would recover 2d10+4 HP after a night of rest.

I love this one.

I would probably allow it.

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

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.

I didn't notice the cover error. AT. ALL. But now I have a book that is somewhat obsolete and absolutely no way to afford the revision. Thanks.

I'm still on the fence about it, but I liked the second episode better. I'm just not a fan of shows shot in this style (Like "The Office" and others).

Awesome. Will do!

This will be a huge boon to me. The city my PCs are currently based in is a bustling port city and they have business dealings with ship captains all the time. Coming up with ships' names on the spot can be tricky. Thanks for this!

That's entirely true, and it's something I hope I can do.

I've run a homebrew world for 24 years, mostly revolving around one certain city. 3 years ago my players wanted to play in a new area of the world and use a different city as the base. In fact, they're mostly city based games. I feel like I'm dating a girl I really don't like but don't have the guts to break up with. I want to go back to the original city that I love, but I'm stuck in this relationship with a city I created but just don't like. I recently had most of if destroyed in an attack by dragons, hoping to get the other players to move to the city I like, but they're deciding to stick it out and help rebuild. I don't like this city, even though I created it. I just don't have the creative energy for it I should.

...that I absolutely stink at PbP. I gave it a shot with Jiggy GMing (who's a great GM, by the way). I sucked dirt at it.

I use a homebrew method to resolve chases. I divide a creature/character's speed by 5 to get a modifier to add to a d20 roll. Chases then become opposed rolls.

Example: Movement 30 would be +6 added to 1d20.

I also allow extra language slots for high INT to be used for adding additional class skills instead of languages.

Altho if humans killed off the horse in NA I do wonder why it still survived in eurasia.

Because what died off in North America wasn't the horse, but a small precursor called an eohippus. Horses were not seen in America until the Spanish brought them over to the continent, and lost a bunch of them.
Eohippus (or more appropriately "eohippus" since it's probably not a monophyletic genus) was a member of a grade of early horses that gave rise to later species in the Eocene (close relatives were also hanging out in Eurasia at the same time). However, it's descendants were very much alive in North America throughout the remainder of the Cenozoic. ...

Didn't camelids also evolve here first?

Speaking of Rush, I always thought that Geddy Lee was really short, given that he's shorter than the other members of the band. I was wrong. He's 5'10". Alex Lifeson is at least 6', and Neil Peart is 6'4".
what a bunch of giants.

Blackie Lawless of the heavy metal band WASP is also 6'4".

I could never really get into it. I tried, but it just didn't click for me. I have a friend, however, who practically thinks that anything Straszynski (sp?) writes should be added to the Bible.

Thanks for letting my try out a PbP. I may not be cut out for it with the problems I have. I'll keep trying to read the 5e rules and might give it another shot.

I'm assuming the stereos were in the trunks?

The speakers were. I had a 1972 Monte Carlo with a large area behind the back seat where the speakers were mounted.

Being disabled with chronic pain and clinical depression, I'd probably be a sad, dirty beggar. Ideally, I'd be an archivist.

It was a small town. Not much to do on the weekends. So people loaded up their friends and drove up and down a couple sections of town and then would sit for awhile and just hang out, listening to music, talking, sneaking beers between cops driving by and just enjoying the summer nights. The reason the trunks were open was because most of us had kickin' stereos and we liked to show them off by blasting music. It was before I discovered gaming.. lol.. but I wouldn't trade those memories for anything.

I love DQ. There was one in the town where I grew up where we would sit on our car hoods in the parking lot and play our car stereos with the trunks open after "cruising" around for awhile.

Male Human Epic Loiterer

I plant my feet and swing at it again, hoping to wallop it hard enough to put it down this time.

Morningstar: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6, Damage: 1d8 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 2 = 10

Male Human Epic Loiterer

I totally knew that about damage. Just wasn't thinking, I guess

I take another swat at it, getting a bit uneasy at the amount of damage I've take from it so far.

Morningstar: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (12) + 5 = 17, Damage: 1d8 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3

I have a friend who would think Whedon's crap in a bucket would be television or cinematic gold. He babbles on constantly about Whedon or Whedon related stuff (the Buffy and Angel comic books, for example) and it just completely makes me NOT want to have anything to do with the guy. I did enjoy Avengers but thought Cabin in the Woods was a waste of my Redbox dollar.

I've never seen Angel or Buffy.

I'm sure it was a good show. It just didn't hold my interest.

From ENWorld:

"Here's WotC's full announcement:

Choosing to retire a former foundation of our community was not an easy decision, but we feel that we must adjust our communications structure to reflect where conversations about Wizards of the Coast games are taking place.

Social media has changed significantly over the last ten years, and discussions about games aren't exclusive to company-hosted forums. The majority of community conversation takes place on third-party websites (such as Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and many other fantastic community-run websites), and it is up to us to evolve alongside our players.

We encourage past and current users to retrieve any information you want to retain from the Community Forums for both Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. The shutdown will occur on October 29, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. PT. We want to provide enough time for our forum members to move their content, and we recognize that given our forum's vibrant user base and extensive history, this may take time. Any information still on the forums on the cut-off date will be deleted.

Thank you to all of our past and current forum users. You helped build our community into what it is now, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you on our many active social platforms."

I have roughly 700 dice, myself. I love 'em.

I once described a gnoll wizard as using a quipu for his spellbook. Quipus used a complicated series of knots and were used by the Incas to record trade transactions and numerals. I just figured it was only a step away from using one as a form of spellbook.

I'm selling most of my 3.0/3.5 stuff along with some Pathfinder. The FR stuff is already gone, but PM me if you have any gaps you'd like to fill.

Do you have these? "Expedition to Castle Ravenloft" and "Expedition to Undermountain"?

I have one near mint condition. The only flaw is someone put a sticker on the inside of the front cover to write their name on. Getting it off the paper would damage it, so I just left it on. I have no intention of selling it, anyway.

Thanks, Cap'n.

I have about 80% of all the Dragon Magazines

It seems I've lost the boxes that had all the 3.0/3.5 Dragon Magazine boxes in a move. This truly makes me heart sick as I had so many of the magazine's total run.

Bad or not, I'd still like to have them to complete the set. I'm weird that way. I'll never get to run any of them, but it bugs the part of me that's a bit OCD that I don't have them.

I own the 3.5 hardback super adventures "Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk" and "The Drow of Underdark". I want "Expedition to Castle Ravenloft" and "Expedition to Undermountain" to complete the set.

Hmm...the Belabra (Only CR 3 but still fun)
Will o' Wisp (CR 6)
Lunarna (CR 6)
Neh-thalggu (CR 8)

There seems to be a lack of CR 6 abberations unless you go to third party publishers or stray from the core books and into the adventure paths and other PF supplements.

I second the motion that I would definitely throw in for a combined hardcover. Been eyeing this for awhile but I hate pdfs.

I'd absolutely purchase a combined hard copy book. I'm not a fan of pdfs, either.

I'm a rule of cool person. I sometimes pick lower damage weapons just because they better fit the concept of the character I'm playing. I'm just not a fan of trying to get the most DPR or optimization at all.

Just putting this here for the folks who enjoy converting and creating critters. The Gashadokoru even makes an appearance in the animated Hellboy movie, "The Sword of Storms" (which is pretty good, if you've not seen it).

I prefer printed copies, to be honest. But I get them printed for free by a friend at her

i saw a praying mantis once! it was pretty cool

They're pretty common where I live, though they're often hard to spot because they stay hidden. During the early autumn you see them more often as they begin to look for mates and places to lay their eggs.

I sometimes put pdfs on my Kindle. They're small and you have to enlarge the text to read it, but I don't mind doing that.

They've also discovered a fossil penguin that was grey and brown. Cool stuff. There are a few other small feathered dinosaurs that have been analyzed for pigments and their colors estimated based on the findings.

The paravian dinosaur Anchiornis huxleyi was likely black and grey in color with a reddish brown crest. Scientists studied the melanosomes (the cells that determine pigment) under electron microscopes to make this determination.
