Borsk should have gone out a looong time before that. Man I hated that prick.

I don't like it when GMs use elements of my backstories as adventure hooks. I'd like my characters to actually be able to have family without worrying about them being used as hostages or killed.
It surprises me to see 'family used as hostage' put in the same category as 'family murdered while you were away'. I've done so in the past (once, and the family members weren't really in much danger) without considering whether the players would mind. ...

Every GM I've had (other than 1 as teenagers) that used the PC's family / friends / relations as hostages ploy has always made them nearly impossible to rescue alive and sane.

It has always been to force the PC to do something evil that he wouldn't normally consider. And since it is a bad guy, he will dispose of them when not necessary.
Since the 'goal' of the GM was to force you do to something evil and not mount a rescue raid. The rescue will be in some nearly impenetrable lair. Breaking in will give the bad guy plenty of time to off the hostages.

Nearly every time.

Well, I'm sorry to say, but you have been playing with horrible GMs then.

Crafting stuff does not take up inventory slots. You don't have to sell it. I have like 2000 iron.

Crafting supplies do not take up inventory space.

A wonderful, wonderful movie. A warm, human story that had me tearing up at the end. Amazing performance by Eddie Redmayne and all of the other actors. I recommend this film. Warmly.

Sovereign Court

Give me your list of alignment examples, please. I want to compare it to mine :D

Sorry, i make it a habit of ignoring rules lawyers. Precisely because they are rules lawyers. Now if they were to speak up only when needed, that would have been awesome.

Sovereign Court

Hey, astrariums are fun.

Sovereign Court

Yeah, they kinda tried to Mass Effect Dragon Age (can mass effect be used as a verb?) and kinda succeeded except I didn't really get invested in my Inquisitor's relationships.

Sovereign Court

Let's see. As far as I'm concerned, a GM should not be allowed to alter events in the backstory.

Using an example from a previous group, a GM should not change the backstory in which the PCs father was a mighty warrior to be a coward in the right place at the right time.

A GM could, however use villains with a grudge against the PCs father.

But if the PC has close ones, they should be fair game, unless otherwise established.

Episode 10. I like. A lot.

Who the heck is that in the final stinger?

My guess

Spoiler:
Huntress

Sovereign Court

Sorry to hear that. I've dropped my home group who played with me for 6 years now. We just don't want the same thing it seems.

Sovereign Court

This site is awesome. Aside from making cool 3D printed miniatures, you can just design your characters and maybe fix them up in photoshop. Too bad they don't sell those models as 3ds or fbx so you can import them in 3d Studio or some such. I hope they add more beards and stuff.

I know. I have the rulebook. Nothing in it makes any kind of sense. Except artwork and mega damage. I like mega damage.

Sovereign Court

I thought that was tasty

Was there ever an authority figure that deserved respect?

Sovereign Court

It was too easy by far. Although it was priceless telling Coripheus that I don't believe in gods. He lost his s**t immediately.

Sovereign Court

You can read any kind of political thriller and spice it up with cyberpunk. It's not that hard. I do it all the time when I need a good story.

Eh, i never had any problems, starting in the late 90s and not being from US. My mom asked me once what was the game about and I told her it was like Lord of The Rings so she was OK with it.

We had a friend though. He was a decent kid, but his parents were horribly religious. Once they found out that he was playing AD&D with us, they forbid him to see us, signed him up in another school and moved away. Yeah, idiots.

I met him a few years ago. He grew up to be one of the worst homophobic, right wing bigots I have ever met. And he told me that he was thankful that his parents dragged him away from Satan. Goes to show what indoctrination can do.

Sovereign Court

I just had, HAD to share this :D it made me laugh so much

Sovereign Court

Maybe we'll see the Winter Soldier.

I think that smoking is not allowed in sindication any more.

Whenever I tried, it backfired. So I stopped using music whatsoever.

Are you implying that they are in Agents of Shield? I don't think I entirely get your meaning here...

No. I'm implying that men have been presented as sexist, useless pigs in the first two episodes.

I'm glad that that has changed in ep. 3.

Sovereign Court

So?

Sovereign Court

I like that the men aren't useless though.

That the Vong knew the Republic better than the Republic knew itself plus needless infighting in the face of an enemy that really wants to destroy everything (I consider the type of biotechnology the Vong implement to be a form of scorched earth tactics) isn't even barely plausible to me.

I have to completely, thoroughly agree with this.

Sovereign Court

Nope, just Fili, Kili and Thorin.

I think Stark is already laying the foundations. That brief conversation between him and Jarvis suggests he is already setting things up to bring Carter in.

But then the General brings Zola in, and everything goes sideways.

It would be awesome to see Zola again.

Watched both Carter episodes last night. Its fun, bouncy and what not, but a little too shiny for my tastes. The softcore porn lighting, the blatant "men are bad in 1946" themes, it's a tad much. I feel like this should be running on Lifetime, a cable channel of woman empowerment.

I have nothing against women. Some of my best friends are women. I have 2 daughters and love my wife dearly. I not only think they can do jobs equally well as men but have had this proven to me personally on many occasions.

There have been a few shows though that have portrayed this era and strong feminine characters without the idea that they're "tough as nails and take no guff from a man." The English show about the women of Bletchley leaps to mind. In such shows it's not about bashing men but rather empowering women; there's a difference.

That being said this is a network show catering to a certain demographic so I suppose cardboard sets and shiny action is expected. I guess I like the show in the same way as I liked comic books when I was a little kid; there's something fun to see in every pannel.

I do miss AoS though. There's a grit to it that Carter doesn't have. Agent Carter is a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.

The porn lighting was such in those times, in movies.

As for sexism, it was rampant and in your face in 1946. It's an accurate representation.

Sovereign Court

It is awesome. Totally worth re-reading.

Sovereign Court

Just finished the game. The end was a mite...anticlimactic? Didn't even spend my potions.

Sovereign Court

Yep fixd that

Sovereign Court

Animal companion, or familiar rules?

Sovereign Court

Salvatore's books were OK. The rest? Utter garbage.

Sovereign Court

It's pretty meh. But, remember, it's a teaser. I'm waiting for the official trailer in a few weeks.

Sovereign Court

Smart idea. I'm gonna do it!

Sovereign Court

I've made a list of house rules, but my computer died and now I am left with nothing. Because, GENIUS, I made no backups.

So, any interesting house rules for Pathfinder would be welcome. I remember three:

- Instead of standard incemental bab, a character will get to make two attacks at a -2 penalty at BAB +6, the penalty will be reduced to -1 at Bab +11 and will be completely gone at BAB +16

- Each character can only be brought back as many times as is his initial constitution bonus. A creature with 11 con or less cannot be brought back to life by anything short of miracle or wish. If a constitution bonus changes permanently (inherent bonuses, not items) the number of ressurections goes up. Breath of life does not count as bringing back

- In a ritual which must take place at a site significant to the deity being petitioned, the caster may bring a dead companion back to life. The caster and target must share permanent negative levels equal to the level of the target.
