Feeling nauseous over people's opinions is usually not normal. There was nothing wrong with any opinions on either side of the discussion. But you had to go the "it makes me feel nauseous' route.
I apologize if I made you feel even worse. But the hypocritical stuff pisses me off, and as a paying customer I am allowed to post my opinion. More to the point, I was even told by someone on your side of the discussion that if a person has a right to say something, he has a right to confront it. Well guess what? So do I.
You may not think it feels forced. That is your right. But to others it does. That is our right. It didn't seem to me like it was an organic, natural background... and other than the actually switching gender, which was glossed over... wasn't even very unique.. And was a bit boring. It felt like it was thrown in there for one reason...
I would have had less issues if it had been done right. Just as I have had no issues with any other LGBT characters Paizo has done.

It's just as bigoted to tell others that their opinions don't count just because they don't tow the PC party line. Whether it is religious reasons or other reasons.. people should not be afraid to post their beliefs just because others will jump on them for it. I tend to think of progressives as fascists for a reason. People can't even post their opinion about something they bought without the jackbooted thugs coming out to squash their opinions.
That nauseates me.
Anyway, I will voluntarily back out, because I know that in most cases people hate opinions they disagree with it. The nausea comment above proves that. So if you have an opinion or belief that is even slightly critical about certain subjects.. you best not put it out there too much. The tolerant usually aren't quite as tolerant as they claim. When you don't tow the party line.. your comments are unwelcome, even if they are about something you paid for... and were not entirely pleased with.
Despite my one issue with this issue... I look forward to the next one. Have a great night everyone.
Not my favorite opening to an AP.
This adding 'progressive' relationships to everything is starting to seem forced... and slightly offensive. By offensive, I mean that it is starting to look like pandering to a specific group, rather than it being a natural part of the story.
I mean... if we are going to keep pandering, why don't I see any positive examples of fat characters? Don't we fatties deserve it?
I am being facetious.... but the point still stand... it just seems like pandering.
Luckily, all it takes to be fixed is the GM fixing it for their groups. It otherwise wasn't that bad.
My guns must be broken or lazy... they have never killed anyone.
I bet it would piss you off that we took children out shooting with us the last time. They were enjoying the use of my Ruger 10/22. One even had her own single shot .22 rifle.
I'm glad many of you don't live near me either.. such a lack of common sense.
I've been in private security for many years on and off. It is the nature of the game.

I don't see you posting proof for your side either. There has been nothing definate on either side.
Though I do apologize to everyone for my irritation. I am sick of how everyone, no matter what it is in this world, has to start whining.
The name of this book is perfectly fine, and spot on. But no... whining must commence.
It's like that Hitler teapot billboard incident. The teapot looked nothing like Hitler, but people decided to b*+$~ anyway. We live in a world of children staying up past thir bedtimes.
Because I am not one of the people that complains just to complain. I know what the word 'bastard' means, and it fits.
Seriously, would 'Halfbreeds of Golarion' be better? To me... no.
The name is fine. Spot on. People just need to get over what they think is being said or implied and focus on what the word means.
I'm a nerd too. I just found that out tonight. We have news for the beautiful people. There's a lot more of us than there are of you. I know there's GMs here tonight. When you went to Paizocon you might've been called a spazz, or a dork, or a geek. Any of you that have ever felt stepped on, left out, picked on, put down, whether you think you're a nerd or not, why don't you just come down here and join us. Okay? Come on.
I am still trying to figure out how that feat is "hack&slash". You could play an entire session with no combat at all, and it could still be used.
Also, it's a feat. Taking a feat, and not getting mechanics from it.. would make it a pointless feat. So, unless all of the hardcore storybook "role-players" forsake taking feats, then complaining about new feats is also pointless.
But then, maybe my 25+ years of gaming has also made me realize that taking games so seriously is the most pointless thing of the bunch. Maybe I am jaded by living 8 miles from Glacier National Park, and spending most of my time outdoors in the most beautiful place on the planet.
Or not, because I'm not elitist. (Just pointing out how pointless being elitist is. There is always someone else that thinks that what you are being elite about is nothing special.))
Scott... you are much much drunker than you think. I am sick of trying to point out to you that I didn't say what you claim I said.
How about I end it with. You win. Whatever you say. Whatever argument you want me to have, I'll take it just so you can prove me wrong.
As I said. Enjoy your time with your girlfriend. Enjoy the Sake. I have mead, myself... just opened it now.
Also, I should point out using bear spray in a school would be the height of irresponsibility. You could kill children with it.
80 percent of Montanans own at least 1 gun. 80 percent of them own more than 2 guns. 80 percent of them own more than 3 guns. Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians....
Kids here train with guns all the time.
There has never been a mass killing here. There has never been a school shooting here. The violent crime rate is lower than most states with massive gun restrictions.
If guns kill people, my own are defective.
Isn't that just an armadillo whose head detaches from it's body every night to feed?

You would hate where I live. We have wolves, black bears, grizzly bears, coyotes, mountain lions, bobcats, lynx, wolverines.... I live 8 miles outside of Glacier National Park in NW Montana. I also live in the Flathead National Forest, and have no city lights anywhere nearby.
The only animal I dread running into is moose. Unfortunately, I live on the Flathead River....
I do miss the alligators back in Florida, but I love it here.
This...looks...epic! I knew the Clockwork magic thing was going to be cool, but SHADOW MAGIC, Paladin options, AND a playable undead-type race!? If only there was a print version coming out!
Not just playable undead race, but two bloodlines descended from undead (Ghoul and Vampire).
Dhampir Vampiric Sorcerer is full of win!
Yeah, my first thought is they don't look much like plants. It gives them a bit of a creepy quality.
Or, the coconut can be carried by swallows!
Can't forget being stuck in a maze with a minotaur... and roach people.. ;)
I'm an American Paleoconservative. I like sex in my games... but then, I am also an Odinist... and we tend to view things like that as natural.
That said, I am not interested in reading a gaming book, that is written by some average joe, on the subject. I already know everything I want to about sex.... reading a game designer's take on it does not sound like a fun thing to do.

My next door neighbor's llama had a baby. Because they are everywhere in Montana, nobody buys them anymore.. so I may be getting it for free.
I may actually get some barding made for it.
Dwarves are my normal go-to. In this, they are still awesomesauce.
However, Half-Orcs snuck up to awesomesauce, too.
I also like the Gnomes much better now, too.
Tengu, Oreads and Orcs... oh my!
All three came out of nowhere to punch me with win. Oreads were my surprise winners.
Ratfolk, Catfolk, Goblins and Kobolds I also like. Tieflings also if you add Blood of Fiends, and I hope Blood of Night and Blood of Angels does the same.
Gripplis won this one, but Strix and Duergar are close behind.
Seriously? Why does there have to be one person in every group that has to scream 'That's racist!'? That gets old.
It is a mythological PC race based on shadow puppets. It does not represent real life Asians in the slightest. BTW, unless I am mistaken, Asians tend to find being called 'Oriental' offensive.
Can't we just have one preview without these really stupid complaints?
Me? I love the look of the Grippli. The Wayang, not-so-much.. but that is just because of that mustache...
The Ifrit looks bland.
None of the pictures are bad. The art is top notch as usual.. just other than the Treefrog.. these aren't my favorites. Still, they are great artists.
