You are getting worried. Early this morning your uncle found Laumdae's bed empty and one of the skiffs gone, and, of course, you agreed to help look. But even with the whole family out and nearly a day of searching, you have yet to find any trace of the child. He has always been quick to complain about unfairness, always a bit of a loner, and you suppose he really must have intended to leave. If he is still on the river, even Ampuae's narrow skiff might not be able to find him. In the forest, oxbows and backwaters make a maze to befuddle even the most alert.
So, with your friend Phoyaa, you set out into the woods to look for your cousin. You followed deer trails, mostly, and blazed your own paths when no others seemed apparent. Phoyaa complained about the rain a great deal. Somewhere around noon, you ran into your aunt. She instructed you to go down along the river itself, looking for the skiff Laumdae took. Therefore, after sheltering under a fallen log for a brief lunch of bread and salmonberries, you began that long and stumbling trek. It is very difficult to hike along a forested river's length, and it is even more so in an unfamiliar area. You did play in the forest when you were young, but you never went more than a few kilometers, and now the tortuous waterway is your only guide home. If you do find Laumdae's skiff, will you be able to find Laumdae?
You call his name as you walk, hoping for the slim chance that he will come running up and beg to go home. Hoping he has not drowned or fallen afoul of a forest cat. The rain and the river and the leaves seem to dampen your cries, though, and Phoyaa has stopped calling entirely. The sun is beginning to set.
But just now, as you crunch down a stony beach covered in snail shells, with undergrowth to your right and water to your left, you spot a dark shape 20 meters across the river. It is the skiff!

If your eidolon is knocked down past its negative Constitution score and returned to its home plane, in regular play it can be summoned the next day at half its maximum hit points. In Pathfinder Society play, however, I've found that I usually don't have time to summon it again before the scenario ends - and consequently can't heal it to full health. Will it be assumed at full health by the next scenario, or do I need to heal it during adventures?
Do fey generally reproduce like animals and humanoids, if their form would allow that? Do they pop up via abiogenesis in powerful natural sites? Do they hop over in places where the First World is coterminous with the Material Plane (some of the fey in Irrisen are from the First World if I remember right)?
I found this post which also has some interesting ideas; I'm fine with houseruling it if it comes to that
Does Fey Revisited have this info, or do any other books?
The best piece of literature known to man, Dr. Brinner has it all. All forms of comedy tastefully blended with a universe or two of philosophies, the classic heroic arc repeated seventy-six times over, characters from across histories known and undiscovered, space ghosts and earth dinosaurs, pop culture references, violence, tragedy, romance, and the ethereal world of the human mind: Dr. Brinner, Ghost Psychiatrist. This thirty-thousand page epic does not look to be wrapping up any time soon (apart from the bimonthly chapter-closings). Some even say that it's still in a warmup phase.
So, if you haven't read it, check it out. If you have, come discuss!
We all love and enjoy food, and we like to talk about it. However, some of us have strong opinions about food, and others of us don't want to debate about food all day long. I propose a Food Subforum, where those of us who like to discuss food can talk to our heart's contents. Sure, it'll make the Off-Topic Discussions forum less popular, but at least we won't have food discussion all over the place!
signd, a concerned citizen
Since we have Music and Movies forums . . .
After a lifetime of study, I have determined that there are three Universal Condiments:
I. Peanut butter*
*None of the creamy s+!%
There is a fabled Fourth Condiment, but I have heard . . . only tales. It is said to be found in the mysterious nation of Italy. Its name is powerful, and I will only reveal it to those who share my righteous search.
Today tumblr* exploded with reblogs concerning Joseph Kony, his Lord's Resistance Front, and an organisation known as Invisible Children. Most of them featured a video compiled by members of Invisible Children.
When I watched the video, I tried to suppress my scepticism. A national movement is based in optimism, not pessimism. I boosted the message on all the hella platforms I'm linked the f$%$ into.
I'm quite surprised there aren't any threads about this yet.
*and some other things I don't care about
The first page, I think. When I was your age, to get there you had to go through the archives by clicking through the months.
(Look at the first comic. Now look at the latest comic. Now look at the first comic again.)
Anyway, s#@! getting sad drove me to start this thread. What do you all think?
Another attack on the bottom line of an industry already deformed by overregulation and big farm expansion, or a necessary change to protect young workers?
My dad read this article, and he could name someone he knew who had died (while doing something prohibited under this law) for each of the activities listed. Most of what I know about farm life comes from his 1960s-1980s-era experience. Farm work is dangerous, but this law could drive the last small family farms out of business.
Every 3.5 days in the US a kid dies while on an agricultural work site. I didn't know we even had that many kids.
April is the cruellest month. Multiply by three and: Spring is the cruller month TIMES THREE>
In winter: "when i look around all i see is the miles of unharnessed snowmen im just too damn cool to build"
Summer is like, mosquitoes and s#~*? F&&@ that.
Fall is pretty cool, you guys. All those muted colours and that biting cold and the leaves off the trees. Decay everywhere. F!+@in geese flying overhead. Yard birds start coming out. There's a few flowers left, but they're rotting. The trees are raining. THE TREES ARE RAINING>
(ignoring the [web]comic medium's stranglehold on meta stuff - ignoring it completely . . .)
(assuming it is okay to post threads about subforums in the subforums they are about . . .)
Why is this forum so dead? Are comics really that boring? Or is it just that no one keeps a tab or even a bookmark open, and just clicks on the Recent Threads?
(Also I just now noticed the "What's on your must-read list lately?" prompt at the top - spiffy!)
This language has little standardisation (f*!~ing grammar! how does it work!). It has become the trade language of Europe and most industrialised countries encourage its practice. Every subculture has its own obscure phrases, definitions, and even grammar and words themselves.* Its current rate of evolution is insane.**
Of course, English is f~@*ing up the integrity of all other languages. If languages can be said to evolve, English is the protobacterium in the primordial petri dish that "decided" not to share its genes and only to take genes from others, thus becoming the only ancestor of all life. Or kudzu.
*Perhaps the modern era will be seen by historians as the Cambrian explosion of sublanguages? Except the explosion had a lot of diversity in root lineages but whatever.
Would you like to play a game?
You all use Wikipedia and then pretend that you had the information in your head all along. Don't try to fool me. So, does Jimmy Wales have a punchable face or what? Should I steal his "beard" to feed my unibrow? What is the best way to paraphrase Wikipedia? Did you know that Jimmy Wales is basically a talentless hack who stole the glory from real programmers? Do you actually know someone who obsessively edits Wikipedia? Was Al Gore the true founder of Wikipedia?
So I'm at the public library right now. There's a huge list of Nic Cage movies on Wikipedia, but I don't know about any of them (except Con Air, which is not at this or any affiliated library). I am looking for recommendations.
Oh, and it's not that I have a disregard for the system of separate forums. IGTS JUST THAT I DONT CARE>*
*okay this basically means you can go ahead and move this thread. I'm not even sure if there is a Movies forum. I guess I should get on that. Later, when I have more time.
