Sounds just like intolerance then, that's what I have. LactAid or an off-brand knockoff taken just before you eat it severely reduces or even removes the reaction. =)

It is however an unfortunate but necessary truth that for every person who wants pretty much anything changed one way, there's at least one person who wants to change it in the same amount but the complete opposite direction, at least one person who wants to maintain the status quo ("It's okay how it is, don't change it!"), and at least one person who wants to scrap the entire thing and do something completely different.

It is, unfortunately, impossible to please everyone, and thus only natural that Paizo strives - and perhaps struggles - to find the middle ground that appeals to most, and leaves it up to individuals and groups to adjust from there to the format that suits their play style more. In the end, it may be up to those who don't fit into that middle ground and enjoy or desire more extreme imbalances between pure combat and pure roleplay to accept that they're too far outside the mean.

Nah, you're fine =) I know my sleeping patterns are unusual, so I'm kind of used to having to explain the situation a little. No offense taken.

My normal up-time is 7. This week however it's 5 - 6 is when I have to be at the office >_<

What is unusual about your sleep patterns?!
Apparently being unable to fall asleep until midnight or later is considered strange by the majority of the population. Who'd'a thunk?
See, I think they're weird for going to bed so early. But then I'm another night owl and have learned to function on very little sleep when I am forced to get up before the hideous light of the day star crosses the horizon. And I see nothing natural about this whole diurnal business...especially when it starts about the time I want to be going to bed. :)

That was how I was before I had to be up for 8 AM jobs. Back when I either wasn't working or was working second-shift, I'd crash around 2-4 AM and sleep til 10 or 11. That seems to be my natural sleep cycle; pushing it back to midnight is about the earliest I seem to be able to manage.

That and grant the human FC bonus to all races.

Given the vast amount of homebrew races in my group's setting, we long ago just threw the doors open and made any race's FC bonus available to any other race (unless there's some physical limitation as to why they couldn't take it - something based on the race's anatomy. And even then, it'd still be open to other races who had the same/a similar anatomical feature).

No, I don't. I'm realistic enough about myself to know it is a failing. Probably like how much I post on this topic at a stretch. It looks like it's incredibly disruptive. I should post less...

I dunno, man, your response looked fine to me. Here, take this Chillaxe, and try to enjoy the friendly atmosphere. :)

Also, good to know I'm not the only new face worrying about that sometimes. No one's kicked us out yet, we're probably in the clear. :P

Always buy a hat of disguise for your undead/demonic minions.

Exactly. Go from deadly Formerly- Orc Skeleton Champion to a formerly- harmless medium bunny skeleton.

Who would want to hurt a (Skeleton?) bunny?
What does that mean in terms of disguise? Aren't there undead that can pass for human or close enough to it?

Vampire would be my go-to. Since it's not actually a vampire it could be out in the sun, and just tell it to keep its mouth shut, or put a scarf/bandana/etc. over it.

I don't really have much option to be honest. I can't go to bed early unless I'm sick or drop-dead exhausted - I'm too naturally nocturnal, my mind doesn't start winding down until midnight at the earliest. And that's what keeps me up more often than not: my brain refusing to shut up and to sleep. Thankfully a combination of allergy medication and melatonin supplements has chased off my insomnia for about the past year, so I've had very few "just can't sleep" issues since, but it still doesn't change the fact I can't simply call it a night early.

Any attempt to go to sleep too much earlier just results in me tossing and turning until I hit the time where I'd normally start falling asleep anyway... if not later due to the anxiety of whatever I'm needing to go to bed early for keeping me awake.

I had to take a sleep aid just to zonk out an hour early last night, on top of my usual array of meds. I normally don't resort to that but I consider this week to be a worthy exception.

Player Means: Can we have a way to make our characters more powerful then complain when you turn around and use the system against us?

Note: I love hero points and let my players use them, but once in a blue moon I give an npc an elixir of heroes luck and my players tell me that it's not fair.

Player says: "That's not fair!"

Player means: "I didn't believe you when you said 'anything the players can use, the bad guys can use', and now I'm pitching a fit because you followed through."

That's a long-standing rule in my games and thankfully I've never had the displeasure of the players making a fuss about it.

His point is that being a nice person and not needing a to be a gritty hidden-dark-side antihero is still realistic, which K177Y seems to be saying is a necessity to being a REAL character.

The problem is, as much as we're fond of it and all, Goalrion is just way too small an IP for an AAA+ game to be based upon.

And Paizo likely wouldn't settle for some indie studio doing a PF game in a basement.

So it's bit of Catch 22 here.

I don't know. They did the MMO, so obviously something is possible.

And I agree, I'd much prefer a non-MMO RPG. While I'm dreaming, something heavily modable like Neverwinter Nights was back in the day.

This would be my preference. But admittedly I've been looking for something to replace NWN for years. Game companies seem to be shying heavily away from anything that allows players that much freedom of creation these days.

Like all things, it takes some common sense and a bit of logic and moderation. There's such thing as too much and there's such a thing as too little optimization/powergaming/whatever.

Most of the "powergamers" in my group, in the definition of "someone who knows the rules of the game well and makes the most efficient use of them", have been fairly eager to offer advice, suggestions, recommendations, and pointers to newer or less-skilled members of the group. I include myself in that list. I consider it partly my obligation, as an experienced player, to give the newer players advice and suggestions to teach them the game, show them how things work, what makes an effective character and what options are, for whatever reason, not to be recommended.

At the same time, those sorts of players need to understand that at the end of the day the decision isn't theirs, they shouldn't deride or abuse their fellow players for making decisions they wouldn't, and above all that it's just a game, and not worth getting overly riled up about, or worse damaging friendships over.

Name: Jaekah, General of Iomrall
Race: Juvenile Magma Dragon
Classes/levels: Cavalier 14/Champion 3
Adventure: Blood for Blood
Location: The Swamp Scar
Catalyst: An angry Rusalka and very hot dice.

The Gory Details: I replaced Ngara the Spirit Naga in my game with Ngara the Rusalka Battle Scion/Champion, and made her one of Nyrissa/Ilthuliak's henchmen to tie her closer in to the plot. After freeing Sepoko from his charm, the party was asked to go slay "The Drowning Lady" - as the boggards knew her - in vengeance to assure their alliance with the newly-conquered Drelev. The party made their way to the Swamp Scar, battled through her Boggard minions, an advanced Blackspawn Stalker, The Tree that Weeps (imported from WotRK), and a pair of very nasty swamp-dwelling, flying, fiendish, three-headed sharks I found stats for. They also slew a mythic troll and scared off a pair of troglodyte barbarians Ngara had coerced into service; the pair saw the troll go down in one round and wisely decided they wanted nothing to do with this party.

When the group faced Ngara herself, she distracted them with another pair of her freakish sharks while she looped around behind the party and began spamming her dominate monster SLA on the spymistress, eventually clinching it in the second attempt. After slaying the last shark, Jaekah moved in to attack Ngara herself; while he landed some solid blows on the Rusalka, she gave back as fiercely as she took. She lashed back at Jaekah with her wakizashi, scoring three crits out of the four hits she made, carving him down from around 3/4 HP to into the negatives, then on top of that choked the last of his life out of him with her tresses before tossing his lifeless corpse aside and turning to the rest of the party. She was summarily surrounded and put down fairly swiftly after that; the party then broke the dominate on the spymistress and raised Jaekah with a mythic breath of life from the oracle countess.
