Kolby is a terrific gamer. This is great for PFS and the lodge in Winnipeg.

Congratulations Kolby!

Demon lords have ethics?

Strong themes are great. I love reading a paragraph that describes a secondary power that fits and is useful.

I have had a few "Of course it does that, and wow, that's exactly how it should function mechanically!" moments.

Grand Lodge Marathon Voter 2013

Yes, that's 100% fair. Style matters.

Don't worry about whether or not others might know the words. Others vote.

Response to an opportunity to see my item after weeks of expecting to: "The horror. The horror."

But yeah, I saw it.

Shame on you all. Ezra Pound is rolling over in his grave.

There is variation in pun quality. Atwood's "the pen is envy" (The Handmaid's Tale) and Hemmingway's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" are of a different caliber than "the Eye Pod of Recall" - sorry, gbonehead.

Hmm: bell of tolling, dirty tricks (steal) . . . NO! Bad Friend, bad punning Friend.

Speaking of boring/mundane titles being a peeve of mine: Run on sentences seem like the hard to swallow pills of today. Next year, more periods please. I promise to hear you out, even if you take a breath now and again.

Grand Lodge Marathon Voter 2013

Ha. Sure. I think I can agree with that. NOBODY likes bad puns (or admits to it, anyways).

Grand Lodge Marathon Voter 2013

We here don't like puns?

The lounge chair's and salad fork's names would then be somewhat amusing, clever, and appropriate. Still a bit off though; there are real items that use those names. Chair of Lounging, and Salad Forker, might be better.

The elbow pad would be poorly named (if, on command, it brought the wearer to an extra-dimensional space containing an apartment suitable for a bachelor, then we'd have made progress). Again, still off.

Grand Lodge Marathon Voter 2013

Boring names are killing my brain. The name of a mundane item is not sufficient as a name of a wondrous one. Salad forks, lounge chairs, and elbow pads need not apply.

On the other end of the scale, a clever and/or catchy name is a huge plus in my books.

Grand Lodge Marathon Voter 2013

The book is equally good. The two diverge enough for both to be great experiences.

The waiting has barely begun. I doubt there will be much relief while the voting continues. Just endless clicking.

No. Absolutely not.

"Moving out of more than one square threatened by the same opponent in the same round doesn't count as more than one opportunity for that opponent."

Mentioned this to my wife. She took a look.

"What? Sweet! I have a new-found respect for your hobby."

Thank you, Judy.

Grand Lodge

Score!

Thank you, Mark.

Books that are not part of the core assumption are referenced in season 4 scenarios, monsters (available on the PRD) are presented without stat-blocks. Does this new norm apply to Quest submissions?

Grand Lodge

David knott 242, keeping track of the count is crucial. Can I delay my wizard's second turn so his buffs last 1 turn longer for other party members? Can my slowed fighter delay his turn until after the count where the effect wears off? Tracking initiative by count is necessary and is part of the Core mechanics (see readied and delayed actions).

My option was intended to represent Mythic characters seizing the initiative.

Extra actions will unbalance Mythic tier 2.

Grand Lodge

Initiative should always be tracked so effects and actions occur and are concluded in the proper sequence. Modifiers trump as usual for equal initiative counts. Where would the problem lie with delaying?

Grand Lodge

Is the extra action feature a necessity? Initiative alone will factor hugely in combat and vs other Mythic characters it all comes out in the wash.

Running with Metis's suggestion (in terms of working within the initiative mechanic):
You can spend one use of your mythic power to gain a +20 bonus to your initiative check. In addition, once per round (excluding the surprise round) you can expend one use of Mythic power as a free action to gain +20 on your initiative count. This bonus comes into effect after your current turn ends.

This very slightly decreases the advantage of winning initiative in a mythic vs mythic combat, and could add some tactical fun involving delaying.

Grand Lodge

Ravingdork: nice find! Whether the entertainment that follows comes from builds, forum backlash or both, I thank you.

@Icyshadow You're ironically and currently breaking a fairly important rule: don't be a jerk.

Having read the thread I have two related thoughts: 1. Don't be afraid of a small player base being upset, you have to enjoy GMing too (and, if you're good, they'll put up with stuff much more eccentric than this; if you're not good, let them GM), 2. Players ought not take their GMs for granted.

Ultimately this is a cheap hobby (I can't enjoy the drinks I buy more than once and hockey gear would cover Paizo's full line and then some 3PP). No one should be getting upset over the production of more stuff, nor over not being able to use certain selections in certain games. More writing is always good because Paizo's standards for their own publications and for third party stuff getting the stamp are fairly transparent. If you want to take on a gatekeeper hat beyond that, well, nothing stands in the GM's way.

Know core inside and out and it's hard not to have a good game, whatever you allow.

Grand Lodge

Granted; you're watching Britney Spears's "Poison" music video.

I wish for a new computer.

An average untrained PC can swim every time, by taking 10, in calm water. Would you throw a friend who couldn't swim into calm water?

Yeah, the rules lay out the mechanics of the world. We're adapting. It's almost like we're trying to play someone else's role, or "roleplay," if you will.

My nipplecaster was the only class that got passed over in ultimate equipment.

I think the OP has given us a good opportunity to request the FAQ we need.

Grand Lodge

Good convo.

I can have armor spikes on a breast plate, "covering only the torso." I haven't seen any errata indicating those spikes don't work (or even a suggestion that they should not). With which limb do I wield these?

Grand Lodge

Myron! Myron! Myron!

Made me feel at home as soon as I walked into my first Pendragon session.

As someone new to Pathfinder, I can attest to the fact that supporters like Myron are huge contributors to Pathfinder Society's thriving in Winnipeg.
