Just as long as you remmber no matter how smart he is, the Empire has been a space faring military power for centuries. He will not out-tech them. He can not make a ship they won't find or can't catch, or will be unable to track if things are left for them to track from. Like datapads of the same tech, left behind for no apparent reason other than to spite 'the man'.
It's all cool to be out 'fighting the man', until the man notices, and you can't stop him, and inadvertantly drag him to the doorstep of people he calls his friends.
Then the why's and the intentions won't matter. Only the deaths he is responsible for will.
An intelligent man would see the pitfalls. Only a moron says "f**k it' and does it anyway.
You know why Tamrin was so upset with Taron? Johnny is doing the same thing, with less stealth and guile.
The setting will react to what Johnny has done. Now we all get to reap the consequences.
We lost 54 ambassadors and 200+ seals trying to defend them because someone in the Bush administration made the decision not to send aid, then made up stories about youtube trailers setting off the attackers?
That happened 54 times under Bush's watch?
I don't think I've seen anyone say it's Obama's fault directly.
Perhaps it's that there is a certain air of it being his administration, and people under him are responsible, 'the buck stops here' and all that.
Inquisitor is the best of the class design I've seen from Paizo, as far as execution of the idea. The mechanics are all synergystic, and never, as a player, are you in a position where the mechanics hinder you from doing what (in my mind) an Inquisitor should be able do.
I ain't mad. It takes as long as it takes.
As a thank you for helping out, I get minis.
I used to be an opponent of same sex marriage, based soley on religious reasons. Then I realized that my religion did not dictate I was to make other people's lives more difficult, or support laws (or lack thereof) that do so. So, I changed my mind.
On the civil liberty side, all citizens are entitled to equal treatment under the law. Homosexuals are not, currently. Fix it.
As long as Christians use their faith as a reason to persecute others, then the world will continue to have a bad taste in their mouth abou them.
I am a Christian. I'm no more deserving of civil liberty than anyone else. I certainly will not dictate who deserves civil liberty, because I believe Jesus would frown heavily on that, and therefore I will not support legislation that does it either.
My group must be the odd group out here. We don't create our charcters in a vacuum, then hold the character sheets like we're playing Texas Hold 'Em, daring the GM to find a way to get us to work together.
We share our concepts with each other and the GM, and we work to find a scenario that makes sense we would be adventuring together.
Nope, I was careful to say players/DMs. Both sides.
Implicit should be that people who cause problems at the gaming table are jerks :)
To add to this, I do not understand folks who 'play just to play', with jerks or other disruptive or generally asshat-ish people, just for playing's sake. I understand the itch to RP, but it has to be in a good game, with good friends or it isn't worth it.
It's not a good use of my already limited free time to be frustrated or pissed for 4 or 5 hours. I already have that sometimes. It's called 'work'.
The strength of your pre-game screening process for players/DMs is inverseley proportional to the strength of player/DM problems you will face in game. The more care you put into selecting your players/DM, the less problem you may have later.
I think this is what Kirth is saying.
EDIT: Or even more simply: "Don't play with jerks."

Respect legitimate authority is just that.
This does not mean he will mindlessly obey everything that comes out of the man's mouth, or see any edicts he has passed as binding.
I refuse to accept the premise that the only two choices are Lie or Fall. If you've been reading this thread, there is a very good, very paladin-y option, that's stoic and honorable even.
Something not being grasped is the Paladin doesn't see his code as a hindrance or a list of do's and dont's. He sees it as a common sense guide on how to carry himself.There is no conflict.
Who does this? I don't look down on people who play...well, anything.You want to play Ponyfinder? I could care less.
My point is with the ability to houserule, a chaotic person would simply say 'screw the rules, I'm playing my CG Paladin' instead of starting an effort to get the rules changed in order to legitimize his preferences.
Then again, maybe the definition of chotic that's being used here allows for lawful behavior. Who knows?
Thanks for answering.
I wasn't there for the session so I won't judge.
Paladin doesn't answer the door.
End of the line is, the Paladin will give his life up for those children. How many nazis will he have to kill would be the only remaining question.
Or he does answer the question:
Paladins are immune to SU fear, and spells. I'm sure they can still suffer from the kind of fears such as self doubt or insecurity. They are still mortal and failable.
As to the lying, I think they will always be honest.
I think the accepting the jerkiness depends on the person.
