Incorrect. The GM is "the final arbiter when it comes to rules". That does not, in any way, form, or shape, translate to "he is always right" or "his words are the rules". His job in the game is to arbitrate. He is, in effect, President or Prime Minister of the game; he runs it, he doesn't own it. It belongs to the entire play group and he is only one individual among several in that group; maybe an individual with a very particular job, but an individual none the less. The GM is not your King, your Emperor, nor your God. He is another player in the game who has a specific job in the game. Period.
I would say that being a GM is not a job.
Substitute "responsibility", if you like. That is a thing the GM most definitely has.

I would say that GMing is not an obligation either.

He or she is the Game Master, not the game referee.

O_o

A referee is exactly what the GM's role is.

"A gamemaster (simplify as GM, also known as game master, game manager, game moderator or referee) is a person who acts as an organizer, officiant for questions regarding rules, arbitrator, and moderator for a multiplayer role-playing game."

Gamemaster

If my dice seem to be rolling off, I just give them a look of stern disapproval. They generally fall in line after that.

The REAL question, of course, is which volume of an upcoming Adventure path are we going to mislabel with the RPG logo?

Because, you know, balance and stuff.

It should be #100. ;D

This was a lot more fun before the grappler became a paladin.
Where the heck is AD and his flexible druid?
I have a shapeshifting psion and her psicrystal (which also shapeshifts). The psicrystal is immune to level drain but is just kinky (and that's cannon). A fun fact about psionic shapeshifting is metamorphosis doesn't require you to pick a common form so your imagination is the limits. You can even turn into objects...animated! :P

I remember the shifter epic prestige class in DnD did that too as you went up in levels you could shift into plants, rocks, abominations whatever you wanted without using spells, fun class.

Out of curiosity is there any items around that protect a player from level drain and negative energy? (I ask as I'm getting ready for work and don't have time to go through my books.

Yeah there is. Death ward (cleric/paladin spell) not only makes you totally immune to all negative energy and energy drain effects, it provides a +4 on saves vs death effects, and lasts 10 min / level to boot (which means more than 1 hour at the level a cleric gets it).
Thanks but I'm looking for an item rather than a spell, I'll have a hunt when u get home on Friday.

The Succubus Bride adventure for 3.5 has precisely the item you need, the Ring of Dark Delights. It was made to protect from the level drain of outsiders.

My players told me recently I buy too many books for us to use in our games, given how little we get together these days. "Feh!" I shouted. "Feh on your 'too many books'!"

Yeah, I'm buying this. I've waited too long for this book. It must be mine.

One of my players said the same thing to me. My response was "You can never have too many books, only too few bookshelves."

Conan's clearly a Slayer, maybe with a dip in Barbarian (mostly for Uncanny Dodge).

Tarzan could pretty readily be a Hunter.

On the Precision Damage thing: I said it was disputed/unclear, not that Swashbucklers could do damage to concealed targets for sure. And yeah, some official clarification on this point would definitely be nice.

Also a thief and reaver. :D

“Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.”

Well given that it was posted the day BEFORE April 1st, has been up for a week AFTER April 1st, and the Paizo team have repeatedly said "This is not an April Fools joke", I think we're good. So, you know, party on! :D

And if they come back with "it was all a joke", now, it goes from an April Fools joke to epic scale trolling. ;D

A while ago a friend of mine theorized that high level dwarven transmuters supplied the vast underground cities with infinite sustanace via stone to flesh and fabricate. Stone to flesh cast on just plain old stone turns rock into a cylinder into inert flesh. After that the dwarf would only have to get some tin paper and ink (for the can and label) and fabricate the inert flesh into a can. This dwarven staple is commonly referred to as Spam.

The gems unaffected by stone to flesh were prizes.

That -might- work, but as a DM - and not because I am looking to squash any ideas of this, purely because of the way I view magic (which, to be clear, I am a fan of) - I would rule the flesh contains no nutrients. Flesh is generally filled with nutrients, but only as a living material for a living creature; dead skin cells that we posses, such as nails and hair, contain little to no nutrients because our body does not require them to have it. The spell caster would need to provide the energy and proper components to place nutrients into the flesh as well as do the conversion from stone, so it would increase the burden on the mage. I don't see anyone looking to make things harder on themselves, so the spell would be designed without it.

That being said, spell research is always an option.

Also, I think fabricate for lots of daggers is pretty popular, though you'd flood a market hardcore using that trick.

I could see the Dwarven Spam being high in minerals. >_>

Here's something I got from a bank about an account review. A bank, I must add, that not only do I not have an account with, but have never heard of, and is apparently halfway around the world from me.

But I digress...
