Just made the best bacon I've ever had, grabbing bacon from a meat market close by and baking it in a cold oven set to 400 F on a broiler pan for about 20 minutes. It was the perfect crispiness and taste, mostly drained, and just so delicious! Plus, I was able to easily drain and store the bacon fat for later cooking usage. Only downside is that the fat smokes a lot in that kind of heat so when you open the oven, it's really smokey. But, the bacon was amazing!
I'd say that there is nothing in the hex that explicitly states that it bypasses the "Constructs, elementals, outsiders, and undead creatures can't be reincarnated" rule, so I would actually lean more towards #3. Though I could see the case made for #2.

Ah okay. I would highly recommend you play it. It is like Skyrim, Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus has a baby. The class system is really good, and fights are quite fun. For larger creatures, like ogres and cyclops, you can climb them and attack their weak points. The game is very challenging and there are a lot of call-backs to D&D (creator is a huge fan). Definitely give it a try.

Shocking eh? Shocking as in Lightning Breath? As in Blue Dragon!?! Or perhaps a Bronze Dragon?
Can you imagine how romantic that is? Imrijka stealing the Eiffel Tower so there's a beautiful landmark they can escape to to make love?
Where's Mikaze? I think we have a writing project to be done for NaNoWriMo this year.

Yeah that's what I see too!
Also, Imrijka and Valeros is like a thing on DeviantArt. Although I saw a cool picture of Valeros and Amiri being total bros. I'd imagine that's how they'd be like in real life.
"Dude bro, you wanna slay some dragons?"
"Hell yeah brah, afterwards we'll drink some ale from its skull!"

Glad to see ASCII porn makes it past the mods ;)
Apologies for the silly question, but how modular is this with the Pathfinder Core Rules? I'm interested in dropping some of the fantasy characters into a world like this for a brief adventure, but I'd like to know how well (or terribly) they'd fit. Thanks for any help!
Adding to that, imagine if you were gay and all you saw in fiction were terrible stereotypes or effeminate bad guys. Or being a woman and all you saw in fiction were either damsels in distress or radically proportioned and wearing a napkin. Or being colored and all you saw were the plucky, sometimes inept sidekick, or worse, the evil foreign bad guy and his minions. Or being non-existent in almost all anime.
Don't let my doom and gloom get to you though. Things are getting better, especially in the RPG scene for women and the Comic industry for colored people. And that makes me happy. Because while I love Batman and Solid Snake, I'm also happy I got acquainted with El Mariachi from the Mexican series at a young age.
Also, I'd like more options for cosplaying besides Johnny 2x4 :p

Because when you're young and you're pushed around all the time for being a different race or sexuality, or you're being the butt of sexist jokes, it's good to see someone like you in fiction to relate to and look up to. And when people around you tell you that you're worthless because you're not white, or not straight, or a woman, it can really make a difference to see a positive role model that proves society wrong and shows that being a hero transcends race, gender, and sexuality.
It's certainly better than what scraps we have in video games these days. I guess I can look forward to being the foreign sidekick, or the foreign minions of an evil guy.

It's cool. Back then I had a terrible temper and a chip on my shoulder so I ended up smashing his minis and punching him in the face. Which, in retrospect, didn't help my case... but I felt a lot better after that ;)
Sad thing is that Andrew is really starting to sound a lot like that guy from the Gaming Store. He always made false equivalence and hyperbole about letting race into D&D would "open the floodgates" for homosexuals and other "liberal b~!@!%$@" to come in. Don't get me wrong, as a fat guy, I'd be okay with a fat iconic. But I understand that in terms of identity, I and most people use gender, races, and sexuality more as an identifier, not their weight. Plus, I've never been discriminated against for being fat. And honestly, I can always just not be fat (working on that). I can't stopping being Puerto Rican or stop being heterosexual.
In response to the lack of Hispanics and Pacific Islanders post, I'd wait until Arcadia and Sarusan are fleshed out more to see them. Although the Hispanics would probably be more akin to the native Taino, Caribs, and Central American ethnicities rather than current-day Spanish influenced Hispanics. Though I could see them combining a bit of both. That's what I've done in my home setting.
