GM Halved my gp loot because we didn't loot the bodies or did a diplomacy check to get extra stuff from NPCs from First Steps 3.
As if not getting the boon wasn't bad enough.
All my elves for PFS all hail from Jinin, but for some reason, none of them can legally speak the main language [Tien] without picking up Linguistics. You'd think being there for hundreds of years would force an entire nation of misplaced Elves to learn the language of their neighbours. Especially when the Emperor himself has a Minkaian name.
Yeah, it's kinda not fair.

Okay, maybe they don't fight for the sake of Good, but they do fight when they can. I felt that one of the things that can prove this is that Elves have free weapon proficiencies whilst humans do not, which is an implication to me that an elf can and will fight, regardless of his/her vocation. E.g. I am a humble baker, but if you try to raze my village, you will taste the elven blade I used to slice my bread with.
Given their promiscuity and long life spans, I'd imagine that they should be far more numerous than they are presented in the setting, easily rivaling the human populace in sheer numbers. Perhaps they suffered from a plague of some kind?

I think I read somewhere that the reason why Elves aren't overpopulating the world is because unlike humans, it is common for elves to be driven to fight evil which is why their numbers dwindle fast.
Being a martial artist and martial arts enthusiast myself, I dislike the idea of a "Monk" being generalised as a Lawful, chi-popping member of some oriental order. But I guess there isn't a simpler term for it and they really didn't look into it much when it first came out.
As for Monks not belonging in a setting like Golarion, has anyone told this guy that there's Mecha and Aliens in this realm? Break it to him slowly, he might not be able to take the shock.
Ah, the neverending quarrel of the Iga and Koga. Have you seen the live action movie of it? It's called "Shinobi". Not very accurate, but fun enough.
As always I love the manga over the Anime. Read Y+M too, it's pretty good, same author.
I had a group actually play a game where we get teleported into a D&D realm. The campaign was called "Immersion". We had to use stats as what we (approximately) possess.
I was a Barbarian.
Feats: Improved Unarmed Strike
A fun thing we learned later in the game is that we were counted as Outsiders instead of humanoids.
Hm... this is kinda getting more Alignment/Pantheon-topiced than I expected. Relevant, I expected, but not to become the dominant issue.
I kind of prefer the Elf standards of the Forgotten Realms. Innately good, more reserved towards outsiders yet unquestionably passionate with those they let in.
Take for example Innovindil from Drizzt's The Hunter's Blades trilogy:
Her mate died in battle just days ago, and yet she threw herself at Drizzt when they got alone.
Pretty much Drizzt goes "That's quite a short mourning period for an elf,"
She then teaches him about how love like an elf, having many lovers throughout the centuries of both human and elf. The point is not to live a ridiculously long tifetime, but to live through many different lifetimes through the ages.
So, yeah... that kinda justifies the quick 'getting over it' period.
Being a Batman fan, I would greatly disagree. If seen for vengeance alone, Batman's parents have long been avenged. His ongoing crusade against criminality goes far beyond that.
Same case with Frank Castle.
Ironically, everyone except the RPG club.
Just doing a bit of browsing around the history and stories on some prominent elves in the realm of Golarion. I mean, I shouldn't generalise based on the fact that Calistria's a major god to them, but then I read about Merisiel, Lirianne's (Gunslinger Iconic)mum, Seltyiel's dad...
I mean, I do play an elf ninja who is a bit of a perv himself (he he he).
But yeah, are we really meant to be sex freaks?
He can take three to five hours of daylight time to manage his businesses and about an hour or two to socialise on early night. He can take nights off as Gotham is patrolled by 7 or so others from Batman Inc. Even Robin (current, Damian Wayne) does solo patrols. But I imagine he takes time off patrols to do major investigations.
My character was trolling him the entire adventure by associating each phallic object we come across with Torch. He had to make Will saves each time. Almost convinced the GM that he's beginning to go gay for Torch as I kept reminding him.
After that adventure, all DMs are informed that the character must have some minor Torch-related event in every adventure he's in. XD
Ah, I wish I could invite you to my PFS group. Yeah, there's always gonna be some high DPS dude who put a lot of thought into making a character that makes my Ninja look like a child, but hey- nothing livens up the table more than the hilarious roleplay.
"I roll for Perception... 28!"
