Whenever we blow an RP opportunity, where things simply go pear shaped (which is often), I go with this.

Well, Pathfinder sold itself on being pretty backwards compatible with 3.5, why wouldn't any theoretical 2.0 do the same? Instead of wholesale being a new game I think it's more likely to be a continuation of what they've already been doing with their newer books in terms of updating and revising options.

Lot of folks want to see what Paizo can do unchained. Also, a new system might allow them to get out from under the OGL. Not saying, just sayin.

This movie was hilarious, except for a couple of parts that were kinda uncomfortable to watch.

I like the descriptions! I think maybe describing the type of play to expect (kingmaker and Skull and Shackles, for instance, are sorta sandboxy) might help them decide as well.

Heh. My current group all use laptops, except for me; I've kept to pencil and paper, because a folder with several sheets of paper (character sheet+scratch paper) is SO much easier to haul around and set up, imo.

I go P&P when im playing. I however must have a laptop/tablet when I am the GM. Its just too useful a tool not to have for a game master.

In a study they found that most CEOs are psychopaths. So it might be a trait and not a drawback. That, or America is really screwed. :P

Are you sure it was CEOs? I thought it was if you were to examine a corporation as a person, all corporations would be psychopaths?

Now on to another grumble. I was reviewing 7th level cleric spells, as my cleric in Kingmaker has just leveled up. There's a spell called 'Regenerate', and the description says that it will regrow severed limbs. But there's no real mechanic for severing limbs in Pathfinder, so how is that property of the spell useful?

My first roleplaying experience was with RuneQuest, which uses hit locations, and hit points and AC are assigned by body part. In that system you can have 2 points of armor on both arms, or no armor on your arms, or 2 points on one arm and none on the other. I'll admit that it's some extra bookkeeping, but I never found it too difficult to manage. It means that your character can lose a limb or an eye - permanently. I miss that level of detail in d20 games.

Id prefer to stick to PF way of things and leaving limb/eye/etc severing to special instances that require saves.

Its really using two wrong to make a right in a way but its a complicated issue and might be the best we can do atm then.

Not really.

After decades of exclusion and whitewashing, allowing PoC to have more roles that were traditionally given to whites is not a "wrong correcting a wrong".

well wrong in theory that giving a race an advantage over another is wrong, but in this case it is giving an advantage to group X to offset another advantage that group Y already possesses.

If you can imagine a world without racial bias then the practice would be wrong but given circumstances its being used to off-set a already present bias.

Exactly, until the field is evened it's not "wrong".
But it IS wrong. You may want to see MORE Donald Trump's in the White House but I don't.

F!*+ING EXCUSE ME?

Allowing more PoC would FIX unemployment issues in cinema, not cause them. White people are NOT marginalized.

I think we are seeing more of that equality is oppression mindset at work here.

Back when I worked in the stores I was on overnight stocking team. Each morning when the store opened the hot wheels guys would go running for the endcap. I would hear a cry out "Nooooo!!1!!!one!!1!1!"

I'd look over at Rob a guy I worked with and say, "you did it again didn't you?" He would find the Hot wheels Treasure hunts in the cases and then crease ever so slightly the corner and then stock it. lol

If I were a role play character....

I'd be a bard who always sings this song to anyone who will listen:

Come sit, and listen awhile

One evening as the moons came up and the temple fire was burning
Down the path came a murderhobo hiking and he said boys I'm not turning
I'm headin for a realm that's far away beside the crystal fountains
so join the party and we'll go and see the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains there's a land that's fair and bright
Where the XP grows on bushes and you sleep out every night
Where the laws are all empty and you would kill the sheriff anyway
On the swords and the boards and the barmaid hoards
Where hostages get saved after we been paid
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains all the guards have wooden legs
And the monsters all have rubber teeth and the barkeeps handover their kegs
The farmer's barns are full of loot, if they say no feel free to slay
Oh, I'm not bound to go where there ain't no gold
where those townsfolk should have killed us; truth be told
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains you never worry about locks
and if they are home you run them through no time for talks
the paladins have to tip their helms and all the lawful good are blind
If the party knew I’d kill them too
bury the dead without their gear is the thing to do
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains, dungeons are made of tin
And you can walk right out again as soon as you are in
There will always be short swords, axes, saws when you need a way
so I'm a goin to stay where you flay all day
Where they hung the jerk that invented work
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

I'll see you all this Monty Haul in the Big Rock Candy Mountains

As far as violence, sometimes it is so subtle that we don't pick up on it. Someone who spreads their things over a table and takes over half of it Truth in text, I've been guilty of this, I'm working on it. is being as aggressive as the person who takes a swing at a person, it's just a different approach and methodology.

Could you unpack this for me? Are you saying taking up space on a table is violently aggressive, and on a similar level as actually attacking someone physically?

Nintendo will be releasing more units on December 5th. It will be better to wait for that. Though I do find it interesting that this item will not be available for black Friday.

I am really surprised myself. My company told the distributer that the demand was there and the supply was "stupid low". They sold out instantly and I expect the exact same in a few weeks which will be your last shot before x-mas. In fact, Target's ad ran Sunday 11/13 and had the Nintendo Classic in the ad even though supplies had been depleted immediately on Friday 11/11....

Drakkhen? I tried playing that on the PC and it was pretty much incomprehensible with me muddling through part way before getting killed off

I think because the game was so difficult to decipher was one of the reason I loved it. 7th saga was like this too.

And this illustrates why I never went into the hobby... the people who thought of the cards as a money-making venue as opposed to buying a game to have fun with.

I really don't expect to make a profit on reselling my Pathfinder books.

You also don't have to buy your PF books over and over again hoping to collect all the random rules not guaranteed in the first purchase.

I find it difficult to understand how anyone would select one of the amendments and declare

"this one is my number one priority."

A friend of mine, who happens to be gay and partnered with a Latino man of Mexican heritage, had his father text him "rejoice the republic has reformed" on Wed 11/9. The father is in his sixties, white, middle classed, and retired. He loves his guns for hunting and target practice. He reloads his own bullets so its a complete hobby for him. Guns are pretty much the only thing this guy has to worry about. Therefore, he votes republican reliably every election because he's been sold on the idea that only republicans will support his right to firearms.

Depending on what the material and topic was in the thread, though.

Several of those post-election threads were... exceptionally inflammatory.

Agreed. The threads that the mods decided to delete in their entirety really deserved to go, IMAO.

Honestly, I've just been hiding the purely political threads. If I want to get fired up/rant about politics, there's always Facebook. I come to gaming boards to escape from reality.

IDK, I find I have a much better discussion here at Paizo than on FB about......anything. Clearly YMMV.

Maybe (hopefully?) the D&D movies will be as successful and great as the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

Then we can have tons of D&D movies! Like Dragonlance, Azure Bonds, etc.

I think the key is for Hasbro to make a film that truly stands out from the rest. I imagine this is incredibly difficult to do with the fantasy genre based on my experience with it.

The Guardian Legend. I think I rented that game multiple times to finally manage to make my way through it. I think beating it was probably the most satisfaction I had in the NES era (though beating the original Castlevania was up there.)

Yeap, GL was a truly unique experience on NES. One thing I certainly do not miss, however, is writing down massive character passwords to continue my progress.

The Thing That Should Not Be wrote:


Trump got the vote because half of murrica was tired of being called racist and misogynist for rational disagreements with Obama and Hillary's policies. This is represented by the fact that nearly all the pollsters got it wrong due to people being afraid to voice their true opinions.

Obama and HRC's policies aside, Trump is a misogynist and racist. I believe they were afraid to voice their opinions because they knew they were indefensible. Most, I am willing to wager, voted despite Trump's worst policies and rhetoric because they wanted change and they were not going to get it from Clinton.

The American Republic may have started out with small and/or limited government in mind, but its become ever increasingly bigger. I believe that is quite problematic with a two party system. I don't feel like I have had fair representation from either D or R most of my life. /shrug
