Yeah, that Dirty dancing remake they're working on blew it when they didn't cast the two of them as baby's parents.
I mean talk about no brainer cameo...
Well I wonder if Robbie is tied to the Darkhold. I hope we might see Victoria Montessi.
The subtitles give him as Jeffrey Mace.
I'd add to my Christmas list... Frank Drake. Him and Linda could cross the 'magi-tech' divide, and provide a foil for Jemma.
I'm at Origins on Sunday, a little punchy and I see Tim Zahn is there. I'm mad that a) I don't have my Thrawn Trillogy books and b) I'm too broke to buy anything, but I wander over and tell him thanks for the Thrawn trilogy and all the work that's now non-cannon.
He politely points out that the movie timeline doesn't cover the time of the trilogy, so we never know...
I laughed when I read the news about Thrawn.

Ooooh that would be good. The squad (and just the squad) having to retrieve the McGuffin from Santa Prisca. Fair amount of outdoor scenes leading up to the prison, where you get nice and claustrophobic.
Plus it would allow Bane to be shown in 'evil Doc Savage mode' and reverse some villain decay.

This might be worth noting in a campaign clarifications for PFS.
It doesn't need to be a potion issue.
Party a is two abreast in 10 by 10 corridore. Fighter a and bard b are holding the line. Fighter a drops unconscious. Summoner c drops a summoned monster on his turn to hold the line. Summoned monster is in a legal spot, in fighter a's square. Cleric d goes, channelling energy and bringing fighter a above 0.
Now fighter a and summoned monster are in the same square. What happens?

If Golarion doesn't have half-drow about the place, then why do Golarion specific splat books have a bunch of half-drow options in the first place?
Since there have been a number of boons that apply to a different PC I'd love to see a scenario with a boon like this:
"Forsaken Rescue: Due to your actions a number of half drow slaves/children/extras were freed and given shelter by the Society. You may include a copy of this chronicle with a new PC. The PC gains no boons or rewards from this sheet, but may access the half drow racial traits if the PC is a half elf."

Force a GM reroll and you have to roll twice and take the lowest on your next d20? Unless your character worships Lissala or is a Thassalonian wizard archtype of course. :-)
Unless you can point me to where anyone's made this argument, I stand by BNW making strawmen. Timmy should take notes.
Quoting me quoting you doesn't change that you provided the strawman timmy. It's ok. I understand you can't argue the merits of a point.
now see TimD? This is a strawman "using an argument no one is making."
It's not impossible, but given the versatility using splatbooks gives a wizard (not to mention clerics or druids), new splats coming out constantly, and there being a half-dozen new creative or versatile or just powerful spells in each of those for a given caster class, there sure is a lot of incentive to start using additional sources.
I don't deny there's a lot of incentive to use a ton of splatbooks. Ksenia uses 19 (well, 18 once I get rid of the stupid war hat of errata nerf) If you give into that incentive, then you bring the material of those books. It's your choice.
To say it is not possible? Well that's a fallacy. You can ask TimD about those.
*pats Tim gently on the head* It's ok Timmy I know your own strawman of a wizard 'requiring' unmanageable resources scared you. I'm sure my pointing that out to you must have traumatized you so much that you thought you saw another.
That's called 'projection'. Try looking it up sometime.

And your comments contribute nothing to the conversation. See? I can make snarky comments too.
It's ok Disk, that you can't understand calling out the error in his post.
I have to chuckle, as I am planning to use my Suli Boon on bad puns.
Ulrich Larson, Liberty's Edge Bloodrager
As he has heard of the Master of Blade, Master of Scrolls and Master of Spells...
He plans to become the first Master of Puppets.
I'm just looking for a bit of lightheartedness. Post your crazy elemental concepts here. A couple of mine will likely see play, but I'm thinking of other silly options. Kind of like my Werechihuahua or the Tengu Summoner I've been threatening... "Greetings. I am Pidge. Pidge Eyoto."
Still thinking of a Sylph and Undine... Undine pirate seems too easy
So it's a choice. You don't have to use material from 8 different hardbacks to make a character, but if you choose to... you need to have the resources on hand. If someone builds a character that requires '240 pages of watermarked PDFs' then yes, they should be prepared to show any of the 240 pages.
We've a local player who's our 'kineticist expert' he brings all the info for his character. His fiancé has in her folder the pages for her shadow spiritualist thingy. Neither really *need* to, we know and trust them. But when the issue comes up "You do HOW much damage?" Or "It can do what?" they both have the material handy.
As to characters... I'm working on -25 for this season. Some I don't play anymore because they don't interest me. Some are so obsolete I don't bother (fighter/rogue < slayer) some I don't play because their chronicle sheets are damaged/lost/destroyed and I don't want to take the effort to rebuild them. There's a reason some of my characters say 2.0. It's because I rebuilt them from scratch rather than try to hunt down sheets.
to Kahel's point about numbers. Yeah, mine are a mess too. That's why the chronicle sheets are an official record. If I lose the sheets, yeah, my character is boned. That's my choice to run that risk. I just went through and printed out all the sheets for my GM blob vigilante. I need to track down two for my Werechihuahua. So we might all be 'sketchy' on some paperwork. And the risk of doing that? That you can't play the character at the table.
Funny, I can produce proof with all the books I have, and that's with a character who boasts a full half page of AR.
From Sunday's game.
One of the children that play lost her character, her mom as GMing.
Me: And the mother of the year award goes to...
Later the younger sister is lamenting that the older one is 'getting' to make a new character.
Me: So, tomorrow I should kill your character?
This is something that always annoyed me. Some scenarios I'd rather hold until the higher tier. Else you just GM for no credit until you have a PC or a blob in the right place.
Ok, threadromancy here...
What does the thing do?
as I've read "On command, the belt’s wearer can transform the belt into a single masterwork slashing and/or piercing melee weapon of her choice" means the belt transforms into one weapon of choice. So a bladed belt scorpion whip always becomes a scorpion whip. but in a recent scenario it said "The statblock assumes she changes it into a great axe."
So is it that the belt can change into a longsword and a spear and a whip, but can't make, say, two kukuries?
I thought it was pretty clear way back when Auora offers to make Madison Jeffries a costume and Northstar mocks her. Her reply of "And since when have you objected to well dressed men?" was pretty clear. :-)
Gods I miss that Alpha Flight. Especially Heather and Madison.
My gm blob, I'm thinking of making his social identity be a merchant with aspis contacts and his pathfinder identity being the vigilante.
My concern is how the vigilante dual identities work with scenarios where the "don't let them know you're a pathfinder" part works. Like with my GM baby above, he would fit in with Aspis in bloodline and wouldn't "ping" as a snooping pathfinder. Especially with the right feats.
It reminds me why I liked Bryan Q. Miller's Batgirl. Stephanie was fun as batgirl not moody like the batkin. I like Nightwing for the humor and I'm a wingnut from the 90's.
Post Flashpoint Alan Scott bothered me because, if I am remembering an interview correctly, he was made gay because Obsidian was retgoned.
(Amusing aside, my spell check tried to correct 'retgone' to 'retained' how ironic)
So the reason Robinson made the character choice was bean counting. Feh.
I would have been more interested if iceboi was gay as iceman wasn't. Having more and more studies about sexuality as saying it isn't always fixed...That would have been interesting.
Bisexual characters I know of..
Thomas Blake. Knockout. Jeanette (Secret Six) Constantine all from D.C..
(For that matter, Laura/Wolverine's sexuality is an interesting topic, given she is a clone of Logan and is dating Angel, Who Logan never liked)
Unfortunately the couple I was/am most interested in is off the radar. North star and his husband haven't been seen in a while, and I liked the "normal spouse and super spouse" dynamic. One thing I liked about the Outback X-Men was Maddie pulling her own weight.
Edit: I don't include Shatterstar and Rictor, because of the Jack/Ianto parallels PAD was intending. Shatterstar would shag Groot or Rocket if offered the chance, and Ric might be "Gay now" or like Ianto just attracted to Shatterstar.
Ok, gods help the poor GM then...
Bardic midadventures sidetrack
playing a scenario where my archaeologist had his heroism/glibness combo running. NPC says our druid can't bring her dire lion companion into the market.
Me: Um, no you can't keep her out.
My flame dancer bard of Calistria has this on her 'to do' list, along with a bladed belt for a scorpion whip. Gods help the poor NPCs when she gets glibness up and running.
"Me? A pathfinder? Look at how I'm dressed, I'm the entertainment."
To paraphrase a certain paladin: "My Faith protects me. My glamoured armor helps."
I'm enjoying Superdad. Not as much interested in Superluthor. Detective is the only place for my Tim/Steph fix. Titwns, well these are mostly my Titans so I'm staying with it.
I'm thinking Batman Beyond is not going to be the clean break it needs. So we will have Tim in the Bruce role, Dana mia, post apocalyptic earth, etc.
On the Marvel side, Vision is the only thing holding my interest right now. Oh, and Spidey 2099. Silk looks good, but on the fence.
Then they should have *done* something with him. That's my main beef. At least Arrow's Boomer was enjoyable.
Heck a scene where after Harley steals the purse, Boomer breaks open a window and comically tries to hide stealing a stuffed unicorn would have worked to give him *something* to do.
