Lawful good, in some measure because 70% of the PCs I play are paladins.
I'm glad to hear the class has some fans. Out of curiosity, however, if paladin limitations were merely "non-chaotic, non-evil," do you think you'd take advantage of other alignment options?

No.

It would likely drive me away from the class entirely.

it would actually draw me to the class, though i would make it simply any nonevil for the Chaotic Good Players.
I think we've already established that most if not all paladin enthusiasts would consider that paladin in name alone—a violation of the class' intended and proper spirit.

+1.

I am not averse to archetypes or alternate classes that allow for Non-LG Paladins though, but the core paladin must be LG.

I allow "Any Evil" for Antipaladins though. (And call them Blackguards because that's such a better name.)

My actual preference overall would be D - using a power point system like the Psionics stuff from Dreamscarred Press. But barring that, yeah C is my preference.

iBack.

Went for about an hour walk. Came home, house was empty - parents left this morning before I woke, sister went to a party then work. Drove to bank, got rent money. Drove to used bookstore, picked up the only Brandon Sanderson book I could find in the entire store (The Well of Ascension - book two of Mistborn, I have book one, just need three now). Also got on-the-spot grilled hot dogs from the guy out front selling them. Mmmm.

Drove home, house is still empty. Just chilling now.

Nice Flag! Does the symbol have a particular meaning for the kingdom?

It's a compass rose representing "accepting comers from all corners of the earth"; the colony is far more racially diverse than their parent kingdom, which pretty much consisted mostly of Humans, Halflings, and Kobolds, plus one or two minorities.

The planty green and ice blue represent the FaeReie influence on the Stolen Lands, paying due respect to both Summer and Winter.

Vordakai: "Very well, ingrates! If you will not kneel before an emperor, then you will cower before a necromancer! Come then!"

The end result of my players commenting that V's robes made him look like he was wearing some Arabian styles, combined with the pseudo-Arabian part of my homebrew setting being very big on Necromancy and V being a Large Ham. I started using the Jafar voice for him the second session he was in, and I couldn't resist his final pre-combat jibe from being the obvious quote.

Next year "smart," "athletic," "strong," and "educated" will be added to the offensive words list.

'Smart' is offensive to cognitively disadvantaged people.

'Strong' is offensive to weak people.
'Athletic' is offensive to uncoordinated people.
'Educated' is offensive to scholastically disadvantaged people.

Also, I dislike it when men are called 'smart', because it's a euphemism for 'acerbic and sharp personalities that no-one can get along with'.

When people call men 'strong', they're really saying 'totalitarian task-master'.

When a man is called 'athletic', people are really saying he's 'stupid and uneducated; at least he can run and catch a ball'.

When men are called 'educated', people are really calling them 'pretentious know-it-alls'.

Is this a joke? Do you really believe all of this wholeheartedly? Is there no positive adjective that you think doesn't by relation or comparison make someone somewhere offended or feel put down or less secure/fulfilled/another term that won't make someone somewhere feel.... less secure/fulfi....

This is a serious query, and from a person interested in social justice.

Given the alias used I'm fairly certain it's a joke/exaggeration.

That said, I would not at all be surprised to find someone embracing this line of thought.

Long story short, this has come up several times. It's likely due to the auto-pricing algorithm Amazon uses; it's apparently very easy to get two auto-priced copies of the same thing bidding upwards off each other.

Man I am so wishing I could use this. My Pitax replacement, Shadrach, is more Ankh-Morpork than Clockwork Latveria. Heck, my PCs probably won't even fight my Irovetti replacement - the real bad guy of WOTRK in my game will be The Conqueror, as the dragons swoop down out of the mountain wilderness to reclaim the Stolen Lands for anarchy and drive the humanoids back east.

That doesn't make this any less cool, and I'll probably want to steal it for something in the future. Keep up the good work =D

Elegy-OOC: "Do you think [Vordakai] speaks Arachnid (the Aranea language)?"
GM: "Actually, probably not. His existence predates the entire race. Casmar fell before Arachne was even born."
Elegy-OOC: "Errol and I are going to have fun with secret conversations. Also wow he is old."
GM: "Yeah, yeah he is."
Elegy-OOC: "Well, we're not getting off his lawn."
GM: "That's pretty much what this is all about! He wants all you little people to get off his lawn!"
Elegy-OOC: "Yeah, well, we're here to get our friends' ball back, he took it but instead of sending them home he invited them inside for Creepy Old Man dinner."

I'm pretty sure that "Clockwork Doctor Doom" is exactly how Dudemeister's referred to his Irovetti in the past.... let me check.

Yep, here it is:

DM_aka_Dudemeister wrote:

The way I handled the Iron Lords in my game is during a feast between book 1 and 2 at Restov where Drelev, Varn and the PCs receive their official titles there was a lot of speculation about what happened to the Iron Lords. Then King Irovetti shows up, clad in Iron (my Irovetti is more like Doctor Doom), and throws down the shield of the Iron Lords on the table where everyone is feasting.

"You send scavengers to pick at the edges of my domain!? You have overstepped your borders Sword-Lords. There. Will. Be. A. Reckoning."
At which point he turned around, stormed out and rode away in his horseless carriage.

First and foremost, what she does do is very behind the scenes, in information that is - as written - only really available to the GM. The players really don't have access to the information in any reliable way until Chapter Five. This is one of Kingmaker's few glaring flaws, IMO, and the one thing that drags down or hampers an otherwise near-perfect AP.

There's two ways you can handle this.

One is to play up her participation in the earlier chapters. Make it a bit more obvious that there is a powerful fey behind some of the things that keep happening (Stag Lord, King Hargulka, the Giant Owlbear, some of the stuff with the Tiger Lords, and Irovetti) and slowly drop additional hints to the players - hints that aren't written in the AP - to slowly reveal more about their hidden nemesis. The players being unable to find or reach Thousandbreaths will keep them from tromping off trying to kill her at the first opportunity, and if you give her some reason for not wanting to/not being able to leave it herself, that keeps away the nagging question of "Why doesn't she just squash them while they're weak?"

The one drawback of this method is that it's more work for the GM. This is the method I went with, though, so I'll link you to my thread where I've put up brainstorming and other ideas for help if you want it. You can also check out Dudemeister's many threads (one for each chapter, you can find them quick with a search) for further suggestions and recommendations.

The other is to remove her. Play down or remove the fey influence on the plot. Focus more strongly on the political interactions with Brevoy, with Pitax, and with the other neighboring regions. Very Game of Thrones, with the main part of the plot focusing on the kingdoms and their interactions and the associated alliances and conflicts and betrayals therein.

The downside of this is the loss of your as-written BBEG. This also requires some extra work by the GM, in that you'll need to come up with an appropriate campaign-ending challenge - be it a final boss battle on par with Nyrissa (say, Choral the Conqueror?) or something else equally dramatic, like a big war with Brevoy for the PCs' kingdom's independence.

Redcelt's got you covered on advice for that sort of game. It's not my cup of tea personally, I'm not a SOIAF fan, but for those who like it, I hear it's highly recommended.

Site looks bonkers on Chrome for iOS. Font sizes are all over the place, the "bigger" tag makes text extremely tiny (in some weird reversal of expectations.)

If you need a screenshot I'll supply one.

"Bigger" tag is probably assigned to a font size value that is now smaller than the default font size, whereas it used to be larger. Changing that assigned number should fix the problem, I'd think? I've seen this problem happen a lot with taking something on one forum using the [size=X] tag and posting it on a different forum using different fonts and sizes.

THAT SAID... "bigger" and "smaller" are functioning fine on Firefox 27.0.1 on Win7 (work) and Win8 (home).
