I never really understood this problem. I know a few guys that only use the CRB, a few guys that are paizo hardcovers only, and quite a few that'll use anything 1st party on the SRD, with 3pc allowed after review. They all play and enjoy the game.

Think of a rules system is a buffet: When you start off the food options are quite limited.

As it grows they add new tables to the buffet with different dishes that you are free to sample, ignore, or feast on. To use a personal example, I enjoy Downtime, but I'm not a huge fan of Words of Power. So I use the former, but not the latter.

Adding more options is generally a good thing - if you find the range of content problematic or overwhelming then just limit the content allowed.

Pretty much this. My game rules are "Anything - first or third party - on PFSRD is fair game. (Mythic only if I'm actually running a mythic game, obviously.) Further 3rd-party stuff if you can get me a copy and I approve it. 3.5 stuff allowed in most games if I have a copy of it (which I have a pretty extensive 3.5 library), if it needs upgrading/converting to fit into PF's system we'll talk. Anything the players use is fair game for the GM." I love having lots of options and am always eager for more.

Regarding too much complexity. Maybe Paizo needs to issue a basic game with striped down rules and options for newbies.

They have that. It's called: The Core Rulebook. ^_^

Nothing that has been published since Pathfinder Core, with the *possible* exception of the Summoner and/or Arcanist, can break the game more than a Core Rulebook Wizard.

Ended up reading through a collection of silly quotes and funny one-liners my gaming group occasionally saves. This one is particularly relevant to Paizo:

Quote:

Scint: At some point Elegy is probably going to end up table-flipping and muttering about filigree as she storms out, threatening to use comic sans on the invitations

Wedding jitters.
Nasty business.
Orthos: filigree on all the things~
Elegy judges RPG Superstar
Scint: resplendent filigree
Orthos: made of monster parts
Scint: its true nature is revealed
Orthos: only after 24 hours attunement though
and only if you're a rogue or bard and you cut yourself
Scint: Bard who plays at midnight in the Linkin Park
Orthos: and if its a full moon, a special power is also available
Scint: There, disgusting damaging shiny joke item that requires you to harm yourself.
If it makes s'mores, we get bingo

Just because he does reveal on that date doesn't mean it's the first time he does.

Man I couldn't even pick, there are too many people here who would be awesome to have in game.

I am going to say though that if I could have a sit-down-and-brainstorm session with Mikaze, Ambrosia Slaad, Mike Welham/Taig/Rawr, DM Dudemeister, and Icyshadow, we could cook up some crazy worldbuilding.

At one point, 5 minutes into a new campaign the party was speaking to a town guard who offered to give them directions. The player's response "I'd like to join the thieve's guild. Do you know where it is?"

Well thats perfectly acceptable in skyrim.

Probably for a while at least, unless they happen to get dropped off in places that have portals from one to the other.

Once they become whatever outsider they're destined to become they're usually capable of traveling to other planes; however at that point it becomes a question of how much of their mortal lives they remember, and thus whether or not they know/care about their prior relationships. Some settings have them remember nothing, others only vague thoughts and images, and others allow them to remember everything or nearly everything.

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. =)

So, the Slayer is basically the Angel of Death, capable of Raining Blood down on his Necrophobic enemies? Guess I need to look at the class Piece By Piece, lest I end up Criminally Insane from the awesome. The rogue has been Reborn, and I like it, though I foresee an Epidemic of slayers in PFS when the book is released. I guess the base rogue is Expendable Youth now, one of the Skeletons of Society. Well, I'm part of the New Faith here - I like this class, and all its Seven Faces, which will allow me to spread Hate Worldwide. Cast Down the nonbelievers, Spill the Blood, and may your slayers find Serenity in Murder. Just be careful - with all that killing, they're likely to end up somewhere South of Heaven...

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.

I like having a CRB that's a strong baseline that doesn't need additional products.

Unfortunately we don't have that, and barring Pathfinder Unchained, there doesn't seem any interest in redoing it. So we're stuck with the Core including Wizard, Cleric, and Druid... and Monk, Rogue, and Fighter. And the stuff in between.

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).
