can people overcome their social anxiety or self-consciousness enough during a given session to play the character they are capable of playing?

there are times when I can sell a ketchup Popsicle to a woman in white gloves because I know I am really good at what I do

there are times when I doubt myself so hard and am so scared I am going to fail that I want to throw up and then hide and then throw up some more while I am hiding

there are times when I can walk into a room and know that I can be funniest and most charming person in that room, regardless of who is in there because I think I am just basically rad

there are times when I cannot walk into any room without feeling like I should not be in that room because I think I suck pretty bad and am worse than everybody else

there are times when I look in the mirror and smile because I know I can make someone smile just by smiling at them

there are times when I look in that mirror and wonder how I am going to get through the day because I do not want to smile at myself or think I deserve anyone smiling at me ever

I think there are a lot of people who can play an 18 or more in a lot of stats but sometimes they see themselves as a 7 and/or are afraid other people see them as a 7 and/or think that if they try for an 18 than everyone else will think they have an 18 in being a self-centered holier-than-thou better-than-you d-bag

edit: sorry I thought this was livejournal, my bad

j/k I have feels sometimes and think a lot about things that matter to me

Hmmm. Maybe i can ask here, if people are interested in discussing it. Please tell me if this is a stupid question... But how do you guys feel about how to include trans* people in RPG world creation? I know theres officially trans characters in pathfinder, but havent read their parts. Where they wel done? Did the PCs realize their status as trans? What made them work/not work?

When i design adventures (for home use) Id like to include trans characters but since its mostly an oral medium I have a hard time figuring out how to do it without it turning out... Awkward, at best, andstraight up transphobic at worst. I mean, if i describe a character thats a woman, its not like id descrie her as a "trans woman", that seems it would be... Really bad. Or is it even important to include trans character, and have the PCs understand the person is trans? On one hand, trans characcters are hardly included at all in fantasy, on the other gandpointing out that they are trans might very easily lead to it becoming kind of... "not a real man/woman" which i of course dont want to have any part in.

Im not talking about making PCs who are trans, but more like NPCs and such. With a PC you get enough time todelve into their character, but not really with an NPC.

What are your thoughts, everyone? If you feel like sharing.

If this is a topic you feel strongly about, you really should do yourself a favor and read and/or participate in a Wrath of the Righteous AP campaign.

Always loved OWOD. Hunter and Werewolf are my favorites. Without werewolf I wouldn't be on this site probably.

Heh, actually, that's how Lamontia and I found Pathfinder.

We were sitting around on a Saturday about two years back, with not a whole lot to do. We were just chatting and how we got on the topic escapes me, but we started reminiscing about the tabletop RPG experiences of our respective youths.

As the conversation progressed, we sort of came to the conclusion of, well, we're adults with some disposable income, some time and open minds, so why not try and find a local game? We decided to go find some White Wolf stuff, since my wife grew up playing Werewolf and such and while I hadn't, I had always wanted to try it.

We looked up a local game shop and decided to go find some White Wolf material...annnnd...yeah, that didn't work out, since there wasn't really anything to find. But...the LGS staff pointed us toward Pathfinder as a popular system with regular local games set up...and the rest is history.

see you there, man!

well I mean okay if so

because I think I will just continue to be cool with people being rad to each other regardless of who they get down with or how they want to do what they do or who they know they are on the outside or the inside or just basically whatever man

that seems better to me than needing to agree with a belief that I should not be cool with all this just because I am afraid of ending up in a bad place

I think that is why, for some of the reasons already listed in this thread, that my wife and I turned back to tabletop RPGs in our adulthood.

Neither of us was getting that itch scratched by TV/Movies, in terms of sprawling good fantasy yarns.

So...we began to make our own adventures, through Pathfinder.

So I had a friend request that as a birthday present I GM Library of the Lion for them at the next monthly Pathfinder Society games day that Lamontia and I coordinate (along with help from some other fantastic peeps)

The big thing thats gets me is the cadre of people who play directly off their i device/laptop/ other. Its happened more than a few times where combat goes really quick and then stops as the player stops playing Candy Crush/other, quickly (or rather slowly) loads up Herolab and then goes.

You are getting "the cadre of people who play directly off their i device/laptop/ other" mixed up with "the cadre of people who are inattentive/disrespectful to the game". The two are not contingent upon one another.

Playing off of a device does not mean you are playing Candy Crush and not paying attention the rest of the time when it is not your turn.

I get pretty tired of hearing this on the forums. Fortunately, I have never had to deal with this misguided Luddite notion in my area, as players who use pencil/paper character sheets and players who use devices all seem to have the same amount of common sense, respect for the game and congenial dispositions.

has anyone else in the player group talked with the GM?

have you tried, as a group, before a session starts, (tactfully) asking as a group to provide some input on what you all would like to see improved/changed from the game and from the GM, as well as to ask how you as players can assist him with the flow/functionality of the game the GM is running?

A united front may help get results that one person could not get on their own

if this is met with cold negativity or a flat-out refusal, you're probably not going to get anywhere with this
