Spoiler:
So looks like the majority of the cast will be joining Vriska's party in the dreambubble worlds. Meanwhile Roxy might be able to save Rose, Dirk is out there... somewhere, and John is still vwipping around randomly, though hopefully that'll get more under control soonish.

Kind of curious what Aranea's situation will be. On the one hand she might just get kicked back to the world of the dead. On the other... who knows?

But yeah, pretty sure this isn't the last we've seen of most of the cast, despite the sudden mountain of corpses.

Also HUZZAH KANAYA! At least she ganked Gamzee good before she went out.

First check succeeded reduces the penalty to -1. Second success removes the penalty completely and ends the event.

And here I thought it was a thread about creatures' size...

I think I was someone quoting "a medium medium" somewhere, and nobody commented on this? Won't it become confusing fast? Why not use "spiritist" or any other synonym for "medium"?

You're about four pages late for the "small medium becomes large" joke =)

Shadow Lodge

Works for me. What's it mean?

Shadow Lodge

Grew up on the late-80s/early-90s TMNT myself. Cheesy, sure, but fun. Looking into the newer revamps has been something on my to-do list. At the moment I barely have time to keep up with Legend of Korra, Gravity Falls, and Adventure Time though. And that's about the extent of my TV watching, plus the occasional Mythbusters.

Should totally show the kid Avatar and Korra though. He'd probably love 'em.

I've never been able to understand why Paizo designs as though 3pp does not exist, and will frequently create something that has already been done by a high-profile 3pp and still manage to create something inferior to the already available 3pp offering. I mean, I can understand wanting to create your own interpretation on something rather than just using the OGL to reprint the content, but you'd think Paizo would at least take a look at what has already been done well and take lessons from that.

PFS.

Think it's safe to say that unless you're an unusual outlier, you're not much familiar with geographical and geopolitical boundaries and features outside your immediate area, and that applies everywhere =P

Count me in as a vote for keeping all 54 Spirits. I remember back with the Binder in 3.5 how the just-under-20 Vestiges were quite quickly "not enough" for my group and we became addicted to the homebrewing vestiges thread on WOTC's site. Definitely in favor of a large variety of spirit options - I agree that it looks daunting, but most players will latch onto a small handful they like and not make use of the others, I imagine.

Shadow Lodge

Huh. I've been a religious person all my life and never once heard that term. Explains a few things though. Sort of. Ish.

Shadow Lodge

I still can't make heads or tails of his whole attraction thing. The scriptures he's referencing certainly don't help.

The Psalms Quote for reference:
I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.” Psalm 82: 6-7

I fail to see what this quote, or its New Testament echo, has anything at all to do with creating stuff out of thin air.

Seriously, Elton. Explain Attraction/Law of Attraction in simple, non-esoteric terms. Plainly state what it is, what it does, and what it means. If it's as simple as straight-up Conjuration, say that. Otherwise you keep talking circles around people and nobody can understand what in the heck you're referencing.

Anyway.

Shapers are psionic Conjurers. That pretty much sums it up.

Shadow Lodge

I think it's fair to say your/his expectations are unrealistic.

Shadow Lodge

Yes, well, when you go onto a public forum and post your opinion, you should expect to have it analyzed and questioned by people trying to make sense of it. And pointing out when it doesn't and requesting an explanation that at least follows some sense of logic.

That's how forums work.

Seriously, what reaction did you expect?

So...

Kryzbyn, I already pointed out what made Soulcleave feel so insulted. JJwolven's post stated why specifically.

What? That someone else had trouble with the mechanics of Dreamscarred's work? That they prefer a different feel?

How is that possibly insulting? Tastes differ as do experiences with mechanics. It's possible that JJwolven's group wasn't correctly handling one of the limiting factors in Psionics, since that seems to be a common problem, but regardless, I don't see how this is any kind of slap in the face.

There are plenty of games and supplements and mechanics that I loathe that other people like and vice versa. So what?

Yeah, so what? I was trying to explain how he felt.

That doesn't make it any less illogical.

Nice. Thankfully Amazon is pretty good about refunding mistaken orders.

Yeah Morz there's not much in your post I agree with. Especially that last bit, which came out of absolute left field and had near-nothing to do with the conversation at hand and just seems like an attempt to pick a flame. I'm not biting.

Regardless, between this conversation and your posts elsewhere, it's clear we want very different things out of the game.

The only thing you said that I agree with is that PF is a roleplaying game over a wargame. And while I agree, I disagree that that means we need rules and such for roleplaying. That sort of thing is more intuitive and learned by example than instruction.

Shadow Lodge

Err... I'm pretty sure most Irish people speak Irish primarily, and most Portuguese speak Portuguese, at least. I have no doubt many of them know English and Spanish, respectively, but I'm still pretty sure they have their own languages.

I'm not quite as familiar with the others on your list but I'm fairly sure their situation is similar.

Quote:
Characterization, character themes, detailed magical items with a history and theme is ignored....

Except it's not. It's more that you can't put these sort of things in a book of rules.

There are very few rules regarding roleplay, and there's a reason for that - because nearly every group roleplays differently. Just look how much fuss alignment, the only rule in the core game that focuses on roleplay, causes on the forums - to the point that a growing many groups simply do not use it.

If the one core rule that focuses on roleplay instead of mechanics is getting ignored by a growing number of people playing the game, that sends a strong message to the game makers: roleplay rules are not wanted, let us roleplay how we wish to, not with codified rules.

And that's probably for the best. Because you try it, and nine times out of ten you'll end up with people complaining that the book is telling them they're roleplaying wrong.

If you want character options and detailed world history, you probably want to focus on the setting line over the game mechanics line - Paizo, with good reason, devotes all the energy they put into those sorts of projects to their Golarion products, and keeps the world-neutral products to simply mechanics because there are a great many players (myself included) who do not use Golarion. So they make the world-neutral products as open to use as possible by divorcing them from setting-specific information.

Everything you want in that list above (excepting characterization, because as I said Paizo deliberately avoids publishing the hornet's nest that is "here is how you roleplay right") can be found in the setting-specific Golarion line books. If you're looking in the game books rather than the setting books and getting upset that you only find mechanics, it's your own fault for looking at the wrong product.

Finishing up The Emperor's Soul by Brandon Sanderson tonight, most likely.

Then moving on to the On Silver Wings series, again by Evan Currie.

Shadow Lodge

Could definitely get behind Ragathiel, Sarenrae, or Milani.

I've completely never gotten the hang of writing in first person... I do it for campaign journals when I'm playerside and it always feels awkward. One of the main reasons our group's Age of Worms journal is so out of date.

Third person omniscient is much more comfortable.

So I might have something to post up here, with NaNo coming up, in a month or so. We'll see. =)

Shadow Lodge

I know that feeling. I ended up never touching it again after NaNo finished because I felt I'd jumped the plot too far forward and had no idea how to stretch things out or bridge the two points that were disconnected.

Shadow Lodge

I'm going to give it a shot. Not sure if I should try to pick up the partial story I did back in 2009's NaNo and continue it or try something fresh.

Shadow Lodge

One of my coworkers has nicknamed me Perry after that show. Which I've never seen. So no idea if it fits.

Shadow Lodge

Well I for one won't complain about having two versions of an extremely cool concept that wasn't mechanically well executed in its original portrayal. Color me interested at least.

Put up a tarp. Enough to block sunlight, but not enough to walk on. Will just need to watch it at night. Perhaps have some sort of containment spell at the ready. Walls of fire would so it, though a bit high level and ostentatious.

If it gets splashed, though, the ooze'll eat right through.

I'm VERY curious as to where you're putting these parts (remember your Spoiler tags).

An interlude between books 4 and 5. It's kind of a side-quest from the main plot, though the players wouldn't consider it so as it ties strongly into their backstories.

Spoiler:
The ex-Dhampir's sire, a Vampire Sorcerer, basically replaces Eli Tomorast. Also someone in the fey court wants the Purple Stone and has bugged the kingdom's Ruler to go get it, so she's wanting to at least investigate it before letting the fey get their hands on it.
