Favourite Stones track is probably this one, which probably marks my card as a sentimental duffer.
Mind you, the originals are pretty good anyway

This video works better on mute, with some High On Fire or Psyke Project playing on your stereo.
Also Paizo+Erik Mona isn't something we have to imagine based on a youtube video. It's a real thing that has been going on for a while now.
As is Erik Mona+Metal, if I remember his posts about it from 2009 or something.
I'm being unfair. I know; I'm sorry: it just wriggled under my skin.

It depends on the group.
I don't see the virtue in TPKing a group of first-time players who haven't got to grips with their abilities yet.
To be honest, I don't understand the hostility fudging gets.
If you and your players are having fun then what you are doing is right. It doesn't really matter what theoretical criticisms the scorn box that is the internet might throw your way.
You could probably argue that the Psion had already made their action for that round: intiative is Psion, Sky-Pirate, Julio, Everyone else.
As for Tarquin's AoO: Improved Sunder is the Swashbuckler's friend.
The rules are very flexible when you can't see the PCs' character sheets.

I tried to deliver your message but she was talking about licking her legs and I got distracted...
Honestly, I think the message is that you shouldn't expect foreigners to know details about your country. If I went to the US, I'd like to visit Metropolis and Gotham first.
Has Doodlebug ever been to Hampshire? Does he know that Old Hampshire is not a place?
Here's your test:

Guinness original brewed in Dublin?
It's good stuff. Not really feeling coffee flavours though.
Perception is subjective though.
Honestly, it's just a kids TV show and I'm rather surprised that consistent characterisation is a concern.
Whenever a new writer/whatever takes over a character it changes because human beings.
I liked the comedy bits but thought the drama was weak. As a bit of fun on a Saturday afternoon, I enjoyed it.
If I was inclined to pick it apart then I could tear it to shreds, we all could. I don't expect James Baldwin or Ursula Le Guin when I watch children's action/adventure sci-fi.
What next? Worrying about whether Fraggle Rock is internally consistent?

Thanks, Vic. It's a shame that hardbacks bump the international shipping so much that I have to buy locally.
So, this made me look at my status for the first time in ages and, apart from a meaningless smugness about having been around a smidgeon longer than TOZ, I just realised that I'm no longer a "Pathfinder Campaign Setting Superscriber".
Good deities and racism?
Please expand on your comment. I am intrigued.
Crazy4catnip is a huge fan of IPAs, and I think you might as well pour them right back into the horse. I'm much more of a fan of Scotch ales, but the best pint I ever had, bar none, was a porter that was homebrewed up in a little brewpub in Skagway, AK. Or maybe it was Ketchikan.
What's a Scotch ale? And are there any you can recommend?
Also, the birth rate is not soaring across the globe and has already dropped below self-sustaining levels in some countries (Japan, Italy) . The best way to control birth rate is to modernise and enrich poor countries.
When someone starves it is usually because of poverty. When someone starves in a disaster zone it is usually because poor/damaged infrastructure and/or internal conflict stops aid from reaching them. We produce enough stuff, we just don't share.
So, who should have children? I'm interested to know where you would put the cut off point?
If everyone waited until they could afford children then the population would nosedive.
Why people who haven't earned my respect expect it of me. No, living longer then me does not warrant respect. Maybe if you're Jack Churchill.
I always treat people with respect when I first meet them.
They can lose my respect by poor behaviour but I start from a position of respect.
It is the first step in building positive relationships with people.
The telling question would be, why are you disrespectful to strangers when you first meet them?
I am now a morning person, because after my child wakes she often has another nap for a few hours. Since she has woken me already, it's a good time to get stuff done.
After a few weeks: voila, Morning person!
Rich white kids who "pretend to be black"
A very old phenomenom which might be better framed as 'advantaged people adopt some of the cultural elements originally unique to a disadvantaged group'.
Rich white kids don't pretend to be rich black kids who went to the same schools as they did. They don't pretend to be black, really, they adopt elements of a pseudo-subversive, 'edgy' culture.
They're not pretending to be Philip Banks.
Racism is not the disease. It is a symptom. It starts with someone with low sense of self-worth, someone who gets her identity from somewhere external to herself. Add a bad financial situation, and some visibly different people somewhere, and this person often draws the conclusion that those people are bad - indeed they are the reason why she has it bad. After all... If it is her fault things are bad, she is a bad person. If it is those in her group who are, her identity is worthless. Neither is possible to accept. So... Even if the reasons are truly external, since she identifies with her group, she believes others do too.
What about the wealthy racists?
This is the type of silliness up with which we will not put.
Yes, foregrounding the object can lead to silly sentences.
However, 'We will not put up with this type of silliness' is fluent and elegant. Diverting from SVO should be done with purpose.
, breaking up verb phrases is usually a bad idea: try replacing 'put up with' with 'endure' or 'accept' and you'll be able to foreground the object with some style.
This is the type of silliness which we will not accept.
Before any of this could be sensibly done, yon Americans would need to learn the correct spelling of 'metre'.
Metre is a measure of length.
Meter is a measure of the arrangement of syllables in verse.
, I think yon is the perfect preposition for a Briton to use when discussing Americans.
White kids who listen to gangsta rap and then talk about how much they hate African Americans.
Well, stupidbad gangsta rap, specifically, glories in how awful the protagonists are. If you are listening for rough/tough sounds and believe the hyperbole then it might well reinforce a negative view of the central characters.
Although, for me, I struggle to comprehend racism generally: it just seems so stupid.
I think that most people started with more simple or bland versions of a taste and then start digging deeper.
Like, you might have a taste for red wine and you regularly drink it.
I have never met anyone who forced themselves to eat/drink something they don't enjoy until they overcame their tastebuds.
That seems really weird.
However, I do look out for the changes in my own taste. For example, I don't like olives but my fiance does so once or twice a year I try an olive, just to see if I'll enjoy it this time. I usually have something tasty on hand though, just in case I need to clear my palate.

Elves are immune to sleep and ghoul paralysis because in the days of the Chainmail wargame, elven units were expensive and it wasn't balanced for them to get taken out by cheap spells or undead fodder. The ghasts, being an expensive elite unit, could affect elves.
In fact, Ancient Greek was a very diverse set of local dialects but a common dialect ('koine', literally "common") developed for trade and administration periods.
So the concept of a 'common' tongue not only dates back as far as Ancient Greece but the name also dates back that far.
You have to hunt around but the 'elfsera' pre-painted pewter miniatures are pretty sweet.
If you're feeling flush then you can buy an unpainted and pay someone to give it the paint job you want.
