I hate saying this but while the show is ok, I feel they are slowly losing me... the vibe is just different somehow. I would like the show better if they would progress the story faster and get somewhere with those damn alien writings
Actually, I am also having a problem with how blatant that Hydra is being. Remember, they are no more welcome then S.H.I.E.L.D. after the events of Captain America: The Winter Solder.
Yes, Dr. Whitehall's compnay is a Hydra front - not a problem. But, even so, the Hydra symbol should not be stamped on everything.

Where do you find such lovely links?
This is not the "Ask 'Lord Fyre" all your questions" thread. :P

This might also explain the need for a life sustaining armored suit.

My issue is why was it necessary to (attempt to) kill Don Gill? Given Colson's reluctance to kill Mike Peterson, I am more surprised he wasn't looking for a non-lethal option here.

But it also can greatly slow the body in cases of trauma (like being shot by a sniper rifle) If he were found later and given the right medical treatment he could recover (at least partially).

Let's note that the 3/4 BAB characters could have some fun with this too. A Bard or Rogue swinging through the window -- Crash! -- would be situational as hell. But when it comes together? The stuff of gaming memories.
This is better then a whole prestige class.
Preliminary tests show that you are "gifted."
Also, what lotto numbers are you playing?

Hook Mountain Massacre not withstanding, Paizo doesn't normally publish erotic literature.

You're right. F=m*a still applies.
He would have needed to be something much harder to survive that collision without injury himself, like a diamond. Even so, he would still bounce.
STOP having BadWrongFun!!
Actually, using their game to "push a socially progressive agenda" is (IMO) not a bad thing. Like any other form of entertainment, it can and (if handled carefully) should also spread ideas. (At its best Star Trek is a good example of this.)
The problem is that I feel that Paizo needs to throttle things back a bit - they are being too heavy-handed. If an agenda is pushed too hard, it can lose the very people who it needs to reach.
So, no, you are not alone in your impression. I see that my perception is (at least) parallel to yours.
Didn't we already have this discussion?
Yes and no.
We had a very similar discussion about Shardra Geltl.
But this is about this item. Which, while it may have been created to support her story, is rife with possibilities for abuse.
That's good. Suggesting that Paizo doesn't have an agenda because they can't be expected to come up with every random magic item and yet they DO manage to come up with this one - completely at random? I don't think so. You know how I know Paizo has an agenda on this issue? You know how I know its important to them? Because they've stated publicly that they do. Over and over again. If you want to make the argument that its a laudable agenda then that's something I can get behind, something I've even said myself more than once... but to argue that they don't have one at all?
There is a risk that they will get too far ahead of their audience though. You can hear the rumbling on these message boards.
In any case, see my above comment about this "Elixir of Sex Shift" being easy to abuse.
People in real life have been raped, murdered, tortured, made slaves, etc. but fantasy gaming (Paizo included) have never shied away from these topics, what makes this one so sacred that it cannot be addressed fully?
Most likely, the Paizo developer who created this item (for the best intentions) did not realize the can of worms they were opening.
That would be very interesting to see... but it would never happen. It would be incredibly appropriate from a 'balance' perspective, but somehow I don't think it fits the agenda.
I think this is the real problem.
Related to this, is there any good way to foreshadow Ecarrdian before book #6?
As it is, he just pops out of nowhere.

Another good way is to have one of the rogue's or the bard's contacts warn them away from robbing Eirtain Oberigo - preferably without an explanation.

The real question is ...
Has anyone created stats for the Buttery Knife yet?

Yes. The two story awards you mention are supposed to be divided among the heroes, not per character.
