I believe quaffing is also an acceptable method of imbibing.
in Anrag's Tomb. When my players fought it they knew where they were and one actively taunted Gorum about the weakness of his guardians, so I used the Golem's heal, even though it was by rights dead. The player cursed himself almost as soon as the owrds left his mouth, and the rest did it after the golem got up. However, they stomped it effectively and the party was a magus, barbarian and witch. However, they were towards the back-end of the book having explored the south first. They also were making a beeline for the barbarians and knew what they were going for.
Orthos,Fun fact: In the history of the Republic, there have been 168 Presidential appointments that have been fillibustered and blocked. 82 of those were nominated since Obama was elected. Kind of hard to say there hasn't been a little bit of partisan obstructionism going on when you consider that pretty much half of the fillibuster blocks ever have happened in the last 5 years, isn't it?

Vic,I believe the explaination so far goes along the lines of "John Hurt isn't the Doctor", by which I presume it means that, in the same way people often insist that those who commit horrific acts aren't "Real Americans/Christians/Muslims/British/etc", the Doctor considers the acts taken while John Hurt so horrific that he has excised him from his mental map of who the Doctor is. John Hurt was a regeneration, but he was most empahtically not, to the Doctor, ever the Doctor.
All those mentalisms showed the history of The Doctor, something he doesn't apply to the John Hurt regeneration.
Or something like that.
The sixth is the Swashbuckler which is a Fighter/Gusnlinger combo. Probably a fighter type with grit.
What's really sad is that it is 2013 and we are still having these types of conversations. Will the day ever come when bigotry (in sheep's clothing) has gone the way of the dodo bird?
Yes. But not while humanity is still alive. Minimised, frowned upon, marginalised, possibly. Gone completely? Not really. A lot of people, even perfectly nice people, will need someone to other.
Why choose? You can sacrifice the goat with sweet, cleansing holy fire. What could be a more appropriate offering?
No, I understand financing the government by borrowing and understand what the debt ceiling is, it's just I'm confused as to why it's a thing you vote on when the budget and tax structures have alerady been decided, the debt seems to fall nicely out of the defeceit between those two, so I don't see why a vote on raising the debt ceiling makes sense given that.
Could someone explasin the debt ceiling to me? I mean, Congress approves a budget, Congress approves the revenue measures to meet that budget an dknowingly sets revenue collection below the cost of the budget, how does that not count as implicit authority to raise the debt given Congress decided to spend more money than they get. Where else did they think it would come from? The magic money fairy?
Hmmmm, bag with teeth vs a smoking skull? Two shall enter, one shall leave. Place your bets ladies and gentlemen!
On topic-ish. What you do in your home game isn't a problem, but coming onto the boards to loudly proclaim how you're removing all references to LGBTQ characteristics from your home game and/or bemoaning Paizo's politically correct/divisive/agenda driven dcecision to include them in the first place? That's not really the same thing as taking it out of your home game, is it?
The adventure makes nowhere near as big a deal of it as the Internet has. They're just a married couple who happen to both be women and who have unusual backstories. Certainly not the overpowering roles people have been complaining about.
Nerds get superstrength now? Dammit. You kids today don't know you've been born. Why, in my day.....
They refer to the Monster Manual, so you'll have to refind the references. As with the newer modules, they do introduce new monsters, but obviously they're 3.5 and will need a little tweaking for Pathfinder.
Can someone at Rite please do something about the size of these things? This clocks in at 75Mb ZIPPED. That makes it bigger than the Lite Mythic Adventures when the latter's unzipped. That's huge, especially for 47 pages. This is startig to become an issue with storage and usage as it takes too long to download and then too long to open the verdammt things. Please make them smaller and more manageable.
Float melee monster into air out of its reach. Fill with arrows until dies. Drop to loot. Repeat.
Lirienne the iconic Gunslinger and Seyitiel the iconic Magus are both half-elves.
As for the iconics, I do not want a male half-orc Bloodrager. That's far too obvious. Make him the Slayer to match up with the Assassin, or even the Swashbuckler. Let the female halfling be the Bloodrager in the Paizo tradition of going for the non-obvious route for each race. Ok, if that's too silly, let it be the drawf. Should be non-human, though as both the barbarian and sorcerer iconics are humans. And female. Hmm. Must ponder further.
And you're entitled to your views, but if you are allowed to say "homosexuality is not right" why aren't we allowed to say !"your homophobic bigotry and ignorance is not right"? You are trying to shame people for something they are born as, we are shaming you for something you choose to do. Even if you were correct that being gay or trans is a choice (and why would anyone choose it? Does it give free dental or something?), the two views would be equivalent and so if you're allowed to say homosexuiality is wrong, we're entitled to say your view is wrong as you have chosen that view.
EDIT: Ninjaed twice. Damn, it seems we're dogpiling on Kysune now. Not my intention.

Fabius,I think you need to imagine a full stop between "that" and "Dark Knight". It makes much more sense then.
Spoilered, just in case
Jasper and Cyrdak. Shayliss was also confirmed as probably bisexual
So, by your overly pedantic and narrow reading of the point,Ileosa and Savbine shouldn't have happened as no lesbians have been in Pathfinder since the beginning.
EDIT: Also what the 8th Dwarf said.
Yeah, no. Just because someone is a racist f-wit does not mean they get to tell racial minorities to get to the back of the bus or get off the pages to prevent their white privilege from being disrupted. This is no different. People being uncomfortable with confronting their prejudices is their problem, not anyone else's.
I think it does because it means that happy married couples are rare. Look at most action movies, how many feature a married couple who are both active? Hardly any. If the relationship doesn't generate 'conflcit' it's not used. Same applies to other action fiction, rarely is a happy married couple important action character, they're usually background support.
EDIT: Blasted dragon ninjas. How do they get such high stealth bonuses?
Couldn't agree more. Paizo's blatant attempts to shove heterosexuality down our throats with these cisgendered freaks, such as the shopkeeper's daughter in Runelords, Ameiko in Jade Regent, really are just pandering to a segment of their customers who should shut up and get back to hiding their disgusting sexual identity. /snark
Sorry, but if the price of including others is to alienate someone, I'll take that trade. It sucks a person's prejudices against fictional people are more important to them than their compassion for real people, but, you know, we'll suffer the loss as best we can.
The bad guys hideout is an old shrine of Iomedae. If the party act good and restore parts of it, you get devotion points. At the end of the adventure, more devotion points indicates additional boons from the Inheritor.
It's certainly going to be a tough one. As I said, I think my players may be terribly inclined to stuff at least one of the NPCs down a dark hole and bemoan his tragic fate inthe collapse. It will also be tough on those who charge in without thinking as they'll get ripped apart by some of the encounters. I mena, the villains are actually thinking about defensive strategy at some points. Surely that's unfair?
I think the mini-sandbox of new Kerebes will be fun as well as they'll realise if they draw too much attention they will get squashed until they hook up with the Eagle Knights. Well, I'd HOPE they realise this. Some PCs are far too confident of their plot armour. And after the mythic power-up they might have a point.
I also think many parties will struggle to earn devotion points. Which I suppose is the idea. Only those who go above and beyond 'kill the cultists and take their stuff' will merit the Inheritor's personal attention at this stage.
The three NPCs you're stuck with are a nice mix of annoying and useful. They have quirks that will drive players up the wall if they get out of hand, but they all contribute. The enhanced backstories will be very useful to flesh out the interactions and I like the idea of a cadre of NPCs who will continue to be reelvant, although I odubt essentuial given the risks of the game, to future modules. It will be good for the players to have their former allies react to their newfound status.
It's two characters. For [insert profanity/blasphemy here]'s sake, it's two characters! And you only meet one of them in the second half of the adventure. Good grief, hyperbole much?
Yes, the AP volume is challenging. There are a lot of +2 and +3 APL combats. Also some DC 20 skill checks which is pretty harsh for 1st level characters.
Seriously? One gay couple per AP is turning the game into "a bandstand for the current GLBT social movement"? Really? Man, who knew getting bandstands was so easy? Seriously, people who don't like this are really overstating its importance. It mostly consists of two female characters being referred to as each others wives. This is something to be horribly offended and complain about? Really?
However, the adventure itself looks quite a challenge. Plus if I DM this, I just know my players are going to want to throw at least one and possibly two of the featured NPCs down the deepest darkest hole there is in frustration. Having the climactic encounters reinforce if the PCs retreat is a good idea. Gives a sense of a living force opposing them. The article about old Kenebres is nice for background, but I'm not sure how much use it'll get given the players will be struggling around in new Kenebres but it gives a bit of history for them to incorporate.
