It sucks to watch people come in and voice such negative opinions of something your totally amped about. Those of us who like syfy feel like anyone who dislikes it should just ease up and let us have our day for once. We can have both fantasy and syfy:)

Can we have sci-fi or SF instead of syfy? Because syfy is... I think it's an obscene Polish word. Gorbacz?

Magnus doesn't NEED a rare metal weapon. He was trained in the perfect anti-robot martial art and can harden his own skin to shatter metal with his bare hands!

...So, obv. Brawler archetype. :D

Despite this characterization their moral status is somewhat more complex. Given that orcs were the result of twisted elves or humans depending on revision, it would follow that they should also have souls. Hence they should have free will, but how does one reconcile that with the pure evil depiction previously stated? When asked about whether orcs were born evil Tolkein said that they were not. He said that the abuse of orcish society was what twisted child orcs in a similar manner to how their ancestors were first changed, but that it was something he'd prefer not to dwell on. When further asked whether an orc could in theory be redeemed he said that they could, and that they would likely cease being an orc as a result. What ceasing to be an orc exactly meant was never elaborated on.

My Tolkien headcanon involves an extensive therapy ward in the Halls of Mandos devoted to ex-orc fëa, and Morgoth at the Dagor Dagorath wondering why the armies of the Valar number among them far more elves than, by his best calculations, can possibly have been born over the lifespan of the world... :)

The very first adventure ever published for Dungeons and Dragons involved infiltrating an evil temple that had been taken over by high-tech space aliens.

Arguments that science fiction has no place in D&D, or that the introduction of tech spells the end of an edition/product line, are simply, provably wrong.

A word of advice to the writers -- the same word I give to anyone interested in Planetary Romance/Sword-and-Planet in D&D/Pathfinder, just in case you haven't run across this author already: go ye forth and seek out Alan Burt Akers' "Dray Prescot" novels, variously known as the Scorpio, Antares, or Kregen series, starting with Transit to Scorpio. Of all the examples of the genre, they're the closest to also resembling a D&D world, to the point where the author threw in a nonhuman culture that builds treasure-filled tombs and has gotten into an arms race with tomb robbers that wound up becoming a formalized dungeon-crawling sport. :D

IFRIT
Djinn of the Inferno

God of fire, strength, wrath, and war
Alignment CN
Domains (subdomains): Chaos, Destruction (Rage), Fire (Arson), Strength (Ferocity), War
Inquisitions Anger, Black Powder, Vengeance
Favored Weapon Scimitar

Ifrit is the unchecked fury of the firestorm, the incarnation of flame. He is not a subtle god, nor is his clergy; they bring hidden conflicts into the open, and prefer action to diplomacy. He and Shiva have been both allies and rivals since their creation, each striving to prove the supremacy of their element and philosophical position while never letting their disagreements slide into outright hatred; from time to time they have had to rein in their respective faiths to prevent holy war.

To a lesser extent, Ifrit is the patron of those who use fire to create -- especially if those creations are then used to destroy. Blacksmiths thus pray to him, as do alchemists and gunslingers.

Over on RPGNet, someone asked about ideas for using the FF summons as gods for 3.5, which sparked some ideas that'd been percolating in my head for a few years. I'm too sleepy to write much up right now, but here's a little something as a starter.

(In my mind, the "classic" summons are a pantheon of good/neutral deities, while the Scions from Tactics/12, including the classic villains from FF 1 - 5, are their evil counterpart pantheon.)

ALEXANDER
Defender of Civilization

God of cities, justice, protection, and light
Alignment LG
Domains (subdomains): Community (Cooperation), Glory (Honor), Good (Archon,) Law (Judgment), Protection (Defense)
Inquisitions Illumination, Justice, Valor, Vengeance
Favored Weapon tower shield

Alexander is the Great Protector, at once the guard on the walls, the guard's armor and shield, the walls themselves, and the City the walls surround. He is the wielder of Divine Judgment, the holy light that sears away the darkness of undeath and evil. Watchmen, constables, paladins, and urban druids count him their patron.

The Protector does not lightly grant his power, and he is known to sponsor fewer divine casters than any other of the gods. It is said that Alexander's might could cause unimaginable disaster if it were to fall into evil hands; in the youth of the gods, in a time long forgotten, the Light of Judgment was stolen from Alexander by a nihilistic madman and ravaged an entire world to the brink of ruin. Thus he takes great care to empower only those

RAMUH
The Elder Justiciar

God of thunder, magic, knowledge, and history
Alignment N
Domains (subdomains): Air (Cloud), Knowledge (Thought), Magic (Arcane), Rune (Language), Weather (Storms)
Inquisitions Fate, Truth, Vengeance
Favored Weapon quarterstaff

Ramuh is the Sage of the Gods, master of all magic, and Lord of Storms; thunder and lightning are his to command. He is closely allied with Shiva and Ifrit, together representing the three primary destructive magical arts. All those who seek knowledge or wisdom pay him homage; researchers, librarians, and genealogists can all be found in his service.

Ramuh sees the struggle between good and evil as ultimately less important than the greater struggle between existence itself and the forces of Oblivion, as represented by the Cloud of Darkness; he is more likely than most of the pantheon to cooperate with lesser evil, for a time at least. He has not, however, forgotten the cruelties visited upon him and his people in ancient times, and if his allies of the moment include slavers or torturers, they will not be his allies for long.

(Extremely sleepy, more later maybe. In my headcanon, FF6 is first in chronology; most of the summons were humans mutated into Espers during the war of the Triad, and after the events of the game were revived in the now completely separate Esper World, where they slowly grew in power and developed the ability to see into other worlds, eventually offering their power as summoned beasts to heroes in those worlds. Different laws of magic in each world dictate the way they manifest as summons.)

What's the Spawn Calling spell like? Apparently it has a mythic upgrade as well?

The mythic version? Actually summons one of the true Spawn.

The first phrase that comes to mind is "Information wants to be free!"

EDIT: And the second is "Beware of he who seeks to deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master."

NEW EDIT: Bergelmir, "Mother of Memories," CG Giant goddess of elders, family, and genealogy. Chaos, Community, Good, Knowledge.

Some advice gained from the Deep Magic kickstarter: for the love of Ihys, please release the PDFs first and give us a month or two to proofread them for you before sending them to print! ^.^

There are stories that Nethys was pharaoh of Osirion, but there are also stories that he, then already at or near godhood, helped a mortal found Osirion and become its first Pharaoh.

Me, I suspect Nethys is just another mask of Nyarlathotep the Crawling Chaos.

So one of my players is running a bladebound magus, and he'd like it if his sword were more able to interact with people. Does this sound reasonable?

Bladeservant
School conjuration (creation); Level bard 1, magus 1, sorcerer/wizard 1, summoner 1, witch 1

CASTING
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M (a piece of string and a bit of wood)

EFFECT
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target one intelligent magic item
Effect one visible, mindless servant
Duration 1 hour/level
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no

DESCRIPTION

This spell creates a variant unseen servant to act as the avatar for the mind of an intelligent magic item. The bladeservant is visible, shaped to the target item's liking, and can speak all languages known to the item (if any). It is under the control of the target item, and its range is measured from the target item's current position. The bladeservant otherwise has all the abilities of a normal unseen servant, but cannot pick up or move the item controlling it, even indirectly. Both the item or the caster can dismiss the spell. If the item attempts to do something that conflicts with the will of its owner, this can result in a personality conflict, although if the owner is the caster the bladeservant can simply be dismissed.

In response to the Kingpriest's madness, the gods send a series of extremely frightening but utterly vague omens which the Kingpriest interprets in his favor; they then grant a fallen Solamnic Knight the only possibility of swaying the KP, but some random evil elves tempt him to fall further instead and he becomes a certain famous death knight; finally the gods rapture all their faithful clerics away and drop several asteroids on the planet, ensuring misery and horror for everyone whether or not they had anything to do with the KP's corruption and simultaneously depriving everyone of the divine magic and spiritual leaders that would have been really really handy at the time, causing the people of Krynn to - rightly, in my opinion - feel rather cheesed off at the gods.

All of this is in response to the actions of one highly placed paranoid lunatic, who is manipulating one of the 21 religions to oppress pretty much all the others.

I'm... not seeing any good, there.
