Having walked alone through the dark woods in rural Norway in autumn nights I can see how an overactive imagination can make you believe in trolls and whatnot. Any strange sound or half-glimpsed movement is suddenly filled with menace, fear and uncertainty make you start imagining things....

I remember that night....I almost had you then.....hahahaha

Maybe next time?

No fair! You said I could have the next one!

I expect Occult Mysteries to be amazing though, because so many of the people at Paizo love the concept. They've been planning and ruminating on something they love and are excited about, and love is where the real magic comes from.

Fear not, your damning praise will be quickly silenced by all the "ha ha Failzo hates point-based psionics so they're giving us another vancian system where casters rule and martials drool' people ;-)

There's really no point to this, unless it is a roundabout means of flexing your inner Wizards fanboy. Or unless you are getting kickbacks for starting threads that act as thinly veiled commercials for the other team.

You summarize well the responses of many people in this thread by people who seem to consider themselves to be in the dugout of the "home team".

Accusing me of being a "fanboy", and of getting "kickbacks"? That's nothing more than angry vitriol, but it is the sort of vitriol one would expect from a person who sees another as a member of the "opposing team" invading the "dugout".

Actually, thanks. You've helped me to understand the reason for all of the vitriol. I had been confused because I made essentially the same initial post over at ENworld and that conversation has been completely devoid of the kind of snide rage hate I'm seeing here.

It didn't make a lot of sense before but now I get it. This is the "dugout", and I'm considering changing colors to the "other team".

I guess I was confused because I didn't really expect that kind of mentality from fellow gamers. Go figure.

I'll leave you to your cheers and pom-poms. Have fun at Homecoming!

Wait! when did we start talking about Baseball? okay then i'm game:) Go Mariners! yeah! we did it baby! we're number one! who hoo! Yankees suck!

Realism be damned. Umm, dragons? No WAY they could fly without major ribcage, shoulder joint and spinal strengthening/lightening, and some musculature improvement. ;)

That's cause dragons are magical! Realism doesn't affect them. Brawlers are a martial class, they have to pay attention to realism.

The class is balanced by its strict entry requirements. Not just anybody can be a gninja, after all. It probably wouldn't hurt to put some multiclassing restrictions on it though, like Monk and Paladin had back in 3.5.

Oh boy, THIS again.

No, the OP. Masterful baiting to start another alignment debate, I am afraid.

Well to be fair, it's right there in his name.

D'aww, thanks!

Ever since that one guy went over they've wanted to play it safe.

First time I've gotten this alias out of the box in a while. Was fun!

And then of course there's troll the ancient yuletide carol

Piggybacks victory.

Oh boy! It's time to ruin a thread!

Today I learned I don't qualify as a gamer because I don't go to cons, apparently.

First I want everyone on the boards to admit the monk does get a Full BAB when the monk makes a Full attack action with a Flurry.

And after that, I want everyone in the world to bow down and address me as king of the universe.

You could have just pointed it out without trying to offend anyone.

Well what's the fun in that?

Snark aside, you're quite incorrect.

Golarion started out partially based on James Jacobs's homebrew world which has been worked on for over 30 years - placing it sometime in the early 80s, not 90s - combined with the additional input and creations from the rest of Paizo, which itself was not founded until 2002, far too late to have been together to create Golarion for a campaign "created back in the early nineties".

So unless you're saying you played a game under James Jacobs in the early nineties that was set in his homebrew (which wasn't Golarion yet, at least not the Golarion we have today) where all that stuff happened - and even if it did, which seems excessively unlikely, that doesn't mean it's still canon for the published, composite world of Golarion as it is now - I'd have to say you're doing a rather poor job of pulling our legs, sir.

Isn't this the second time in a week someone's showed up claiming to have insider knowledge on Paizo/Pathfinder/Golarion? And had their dates off and their information skeptical?

Whatever you say dude. I know my information is accurate because it comes from my memory. I did not play under James Jacob's but I played under another DM who's world bears an incredible resembly to Golarion. I played back in the early nineties and was one of the three heroes mentioned before. It was played in D & D second edition. The afore mentioned DM detailed out his world and put it on open source, which I aided him in some areas along with others.

Whatever you say dude.

It's broken.

Sadly there are still some people that have very little understanding of the game that spout this nonsense. Any full caster is by far more powerful then magus.
Sadly there are still some people that have very little understanding of the game that they can't see the reality of the situation.

It kind of seems like you're the only one who sees this reality--I think that, by definition, makes it insanity. ;)

Ok, seriously, though, can you expand upon what you think is so broken? Why are they broken?

Meleers can't have nice things.

Oh boy, here we go again....

Remember folks!

If your paladin isn't doing 497.82576035 DPR at 6th level then you are playing it wrong. If this is the case then you need to respect the class and never ever play it again.

Uh what? What does this even have to do with the topic at hand? Not sure what you are even trying to post.

I have an idea...

*cries a single tear*

Nicely done!

And I would be more than happy to leave such a game. I really don't feel like dealing with an antagonistic and uncompromising DM in what is supposed to be a fun game.
Since when does "your" fun take precedence over mine and the rest of the people at the table?
I don't see what your question has to do with his reply. He has already said he would excuse himself from the game so the DM could have his fun while he found another game that would allow him to have fun. He has made no judgement about anyones fun taking precedence.

Because righteous indignation, dammit!

Trhvmn- thats hilarious, you read my postings, then make the exact same point I had made, one dimentional characters who's players put little or no importance (skills feats stats etc) into backstory make one trick pony joke characters.... just like Grod.

Ok, now I'm sure that I'm being trolled.

Either that, or you're the denser than lead.

Methinks the two might not be mutually exclusive, hyup hyup.

At this point I am convinced that no one (generalized statements yay) can be this closed minded, hard nosed, and just down right wrong on so many levels. I think we have been trolled to the greatest extremes.

Successful troll has been successful. 0 posts needed after the OP, bravo.

HA! The 'troll' provoked a long drawn out respectful thoughtful discussion about player expectations, gm expectations and society as a whole! He so trolled us! We should be ashamed to have had a great discussion on this topic because a troll started it!

... yeah I'm not feeling it sorry.

Isn't everyone(even the troll) happy so this should not be a problem.

The thing was in character creation. A party of four paladins. Got owned so hard in the first bossfight. Heard stories of pallys not being able to hold their own but never believed them. Sadly, it became clear that this was true. The end boss didn't even crit any of them. Just cut them down as they stood around, trying to contribute but being ultimately ineffective.

Nice ta meetcha too.

Trolls is peoples too.
