Yeah gas prices in the US are massively low right now due to local oil discoveries in the past year or so.

Nope. I like voting but have no interest in participating.

Apologies for the delays, I should be back and posting regularly now.

Vet says the chewing is likely just a behavioral issue, due to the cat thinking she's not getting enough attention or wanting more predatory-type play. So I'm trying to take pains to spend more time actively playing with her when I'm home, especially with the January overtime season on its way in, where I'll be home much less often.

New modem and router have been purchased, installed, and cat-proofed as best I can. So far so good.

I must admit, I was getting a bit concerned.

Yeah it's been a cramped week thus far. I haven't had near the free time I usually do, and have done almost no posting on Paizo as a result.

Hope the vet appointment went well. I've had that problem before and it sucks. I use better bitter spray on the cords to keep them from chewing...or if I'm feeling really evil, I paint the cords with tobasco sauce. The latter is also a very useful way to get dogs to stop chewing on things they shouldn't.

So far rubbing the cords with lemon rind and covering the important ones like the DSL line with toilet paper tubes seems to dissuade chewing. She got ahold of some headphones last night though. Thankfully I have lots of spares of those.

Playing it by ear at this point, but yeah I need to get my hands on an empty spraybottle and keep it on my desk for dissuasion purposes.

Yeah. It wouldn't worry me so much if it wasn't a sudden new thing, she wasn't doing this before this week.

We're going to the vet tomorrow morning for a look-see, see if we can figure out what's up with her.

This is just me, but something like that, left unfettered, could very well get down-voted by me. An ability like that could trivialize a lot of the game unless it came with a considerable limitation, like 1 per day.

I am 100% sure that was RDN's point =)

I blame Cosmo for my cat chewing through, since Sunday, two DSL cables, two Nintendo DS/3DS cables, a noisemaker cable, and last night the final straw my modem power cord. It's like you don't want me to be on the forums.

Shadow Lodge Marathon Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014

N/A Entropic Axiomite Doodler 1/Author 5/Talespinner 7/Ad-Lib Artist 2/Worldbuilder 5

So my idiot cat, after chewing through two DSL cables, two Nintendo DS cords, and the cord to the noisemaker I use to help me sleep, finally threw the last straw yesterday by chewing through the power cord for my modem. Attempts to acquire a new cord that works have failed, and it doesn't look like the modem's company sells them separately. So I've ordered a new modem; unfortunately since DSL modems are apparently rare as hell, you have to order them off Walmart's online store, which means waiting for shipping time.

Long story short, I won't be fully back online at home until next Thursday at the earliest, and that's barring any further surprises.
The good news is that the new modem will be a combination modem/router, so I can stash it on a high shelf out of cat-reach. That should prevent further incidents, I hope.

Here's hoping that the shipping, the install, and the setup will go without incident. See you guys in a week. I'll still be able to pop on the forums from work, from time to time, but it means my posting will be slow and heavily limited, especially in PBPs, as I can't reach roll20 from work.

Armor that does not inhibit arcane spellcasting.

Weapons that produce a spell effect when they hit. Bonus points if the weapon's blade/striking edge is completely replaced with a spell.

Pretty much this. They used to be better about customer feedback and interaction, but - as is, admittedly, natural for reaching a certain size and forum population - that's slacked off some in recent years.

I don't think you're supposed to run the APs completely as written - they're there as a very elaborate starting point, but the GM will always know the needs and sensibilities of his or her group better than the adventure writers.

That's the intent from the authors and from Paizo, yes. Some GMs don't though.

Dot for downloading when I get home. Yay free stuff!

Shadow Lodge Marathon Voter 2013, Marathon Voter 2014

It's why I can't ever understand why people would start running an AP before the whole thing is released. How do you know you won't hit a snag that you'll want to alter, or find out something cool shows up with zero foreshadowing?

I've been steadily losing interest in Golarion as a campaign setting.

Some of the recent threads around here haven't helped much with that, to say the least.

There's a lot of cool things in Golarion, but it's always been a thing to cobble stuff out of more than a setting to play in, for me.

I have already seriously altered golarion.

In my opinion, Golarion starts with kingmaker and the PCS making their own kingdom, and moving on from there.

My group's Golarion consists of everything contained in the first 2 APs and nothing else.

We don't run in Golarion, but we do run APs. Timeline-wise, we ran Kingmaker first, then we plan to jump some few thousand years forward and run Crimson Throne set in the capital city of the kingdom the players created. We'll be playing through Savage Tide between them though, to give the players a break away from their kingdom and exploring other parts of our homebrew world.

True, that's interesting. I've also been checking the avatar of Gorum in the end of book 4 or 5 (I forget) and he seems like a massive pushover for CR15.

The First Blade? That's not his avatar, that's his herald.

All Heralds are CR 15, so they can always be conjured up by Greater Planar Ally.

I've been trying to get my med situation straightened out, and this time for good. Finding out what's wrong has been one thing... finding meds that work fully have been something else.

Some of them... you really wouldn't have wanted to see how they affected me. Or wanted to deal. I've had kind people in real life, and even they've been near the breaking point dealing with the issue.

Glad to have you back here. Good luck with your situation.

There is no 'level adjustment' in Pathfinder

Yes and no. It's mentioned in a few places in the Bestiaries that if players are interested in playing monster characters to treat their Challenge Rating as their starting level. For example, an Ogre is CR 3, so it would be considered a 3rd-level character with just the base Ogre stats, and would need to gather enough experience to reach 4th level before it could take class levels.

It doesn't use the words "level adjustment" but it works in approximately the same way.

You can do it through the Paizo store, but you have to make each purchase individually, as the gift option can only go to a single user at a time.

I get kind of annoyed when everyone plays "rare" races, unless the game calls for it in some way. Like, the party that is supposed to try to fit in consists of a sylph, ifrit, tengu, and strix that just happened to all meet up. I guess this is more for APs and modules, as it's always odd that the small town of Sandpoint suddenly has a bunch of native outsiders and mistrusted humanoids just kinda...wandering around.

I don't want to sound like I'm saying it's badwrongfun, but I see it too often used as a roleplaying crutch. "My character has the personality of bland cardboard, but he's half-vampire! That makes him interesting!" It can make him interesting, but it doesn't automatically make him so.

We started as a party of 6. Three humans, an ifrit, a sylph, and a drow (out very own drizzt clone). But the three non-humans are the ones than have interesting personality and like RP as much or more than combat. sandpint loves us, except.cor Vinder, who wants to kill Drizzt 274853 for defiling his daughter.

I laughed hysterically when I saw your post.

About the same here.

My Kingmaker party is an aranea, two homebrew fey races, a homebrew Naga, a homebrew dragon, and a fetchling. (Granted a lot of that is due to reincarnate roulette.) Everyone except the dragon is a thorough, enjoyable character who is a blast to GM for.

Our Age of Worms group is two fey (the two same races as the KM group, actually), a fetchling, and an orc. The orc is easily the most boring and flat of the four, and he's still quite a character and fun to have in the group. Also playing fey in a setting where people know of fey weaknesses (revulsion to mismatched clothing, hurt by loud bells, blocked by salt and cold iron, etc. etc. etc.) is a blast and surprisingly challenging.

Our Council of Thieves and Runelords games have equally varied parties, as have our past games, and really I can't say in any way that these two most recent are a change from the norm for us.

Things like this are the reason why I can't ever agree with those who look down on unusual races as an RP crutch, because while I have no doubts that there are those out there who use them as such, I have far less experience with them doing so.
