Rosita,
It will still be a shock to them. It's quite possible you'll be the first trans person your roommate has ever met and there's a whole load of societal assumptions that you'll need to work through. Having it out ahead of time will likely make things easier for you.
I'll add to the advice about informing the university. You don't have to ask for a new roommate because you're trans. But if the currently assigned roommate comes from a more conservaitive part of the country, the university may want to make changes to reduce drama for everyone. And even if not, if they know it may reduce any future drama. I realise, abstractly never having to deal with this myself, that revealing this aspect of yourself is something you're still nervous about but as others have said, the university wants all their students to do well and will likely have experience dealing with students with similar situations to help you.

I'm aware that a number of spells such as magic missile does 'force damage', but a search through the d20pfsrd fails to find any clarification as to what force damage actually is.

It's not in the most obvious place, but under the Incorporeal (Ex) definiton in the Universal Monster Rules of the Bestiary, it clarifies that Force spells and effects affect incorporeal creatures normally, i.e. not taking 50% damage reduction and sdding to AC.

Aso for the soldier thing, you know why they DONT just executed war prisoners? Simple, politicS. Most civilized countries have agreed to certain rules with which to operate. Same reason the US doesnt just nuke something, Sure WE COULD. The political ramifications are too steep for the country to risk. Same thing. Most countries dont treat soldiers as murderers because they were under the order of thoer state. Now if they went beyond their orders then they become war criminals.

"I was just following orders" hasn't been a valid excuse since the 40s. Orders have to be lawful to be followed and, if not, you can be a war criminal even if you followed your orders to the letter. Of course, just because you've committed war crimes, doesn't mean you'll actually be prosecuted. Neither of which is a place where an un-fallen Paladin should find themselves.

Ok, fine, I'll bite.
How many papers in geography studies say that the Earth is round? Barely any. Clearly geographical studies is split over whether he Earth is flat because if it was important they'd be researching it, right? Or, possibly, most climatoligsts see the evidence is already so overwhelming that they've moved on and don't see the need to publish more on settled science (and 97+% of all relevant papers agreeing is about as settled as science gets on something being actively looked at). The science of "Is AGW real?" is pretty much done. Those researching it are trying to find out exactly what the mechanism is, not whether it exists.
Your understanding of Orfamay's point is so far off base I'm really not sure how you reached it without just grasping at straws to support a pre-existing view. I mean, we're talking creationism levels of not-understanding here.

I believe this was supposed to prevent that, but they got the wording wrong. As far as I know there is no such thing as a "subdomain has two associated domains", so it probably meant "domain has two associated subdomains".

Demon subdomain can be applied to Chaos and Evil, so can the other outsider domains.

How can same sex marriage being legal be used as a club against religious groups?

Yuugasa,

There is a meme in some circles that the next step is to try to force churches to perform marriages for same sex couples. Once that's been forced through (there's no question in their minds that it will be), any preacher who says no will go to jail.
It's daft given Loving vs Virginia did not force churches to perform interracial weddings, but there's a lot of paranoia and projection of their worst tendencies on their opponents going on at the moment.

The long warming hiatus doesn't exist. It only occurs when you cherry pick a single abnormally warm year as the base point. Using any other year in a five year span would show a warming trend. So, people who are cherry picking data? Yeah, that's the denialist side. So shocked.

Also, of the last 30 years? All of them, every single one, is above average for the last century. It's almost like there's some kind of trend increasing temperatures, isn't it?

Fear isn't rational.

Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukishima put a really big imprint in the cultural memory.
Radiation is undetectable and will kill you in the scariest way people can imagine, wasting away from cancer.

There are also legitimate concerns such as:
Nuclear plants can produce fissile materials for bombs so it's hard to let other states get it, which we need to mitigate climate change.
Radioactive waste. We still don't really have a solution to this and adding more and more to the problem doesn't make it easier to deal with.
Expense. Cleanup makes it unprofitable, so companies require truly massive subsidies to build more.
Not sustainable. Like coal and oil, there's a limited supply of fissile material so eventuall we'll run out.

If they use positive energy, they work as positive channel, and apply the same effect as if you cast the spell on an undead creature. What happens when you cast Cure Light on a vampire. Same thing happens to a dhampir.

Channel Positive to heal living: Ignore Dhampir and undead; Heal living
Channel Positiveto hurt undead: Damage Dhampir and undead; Ignore living
Channel Negative to hurt living: Ignore Dhampir and undead; Damage living
Channel Negative to heal undead: Heal Dhampir and undead; Ignore living

You treat Dhampir as undead rather than living creatures for purposes of postiive and negative energy, including Channel, healing and inflict spells and I'm sure others.

May I ask you one? Would you be willing to live as a slave? If not, you've answered your own question. If so, how much do you cost?

People are not things. You cannot own them like you would a pet. The whole concept, never mind the practice, of slavery is abhorent to people who believe in inherent human dignity. This ignores the historic practice that slavery leads to abuse of said slaves fairly easily with a lack of redress. After all, slaves aren't full people. Is that clear enough?

Slaad,
If you claim to have a hot line to divine authority and morality that no one else has, as christianity does, you don't then get to say "everyone else is doing it" and get taken seriously especially if you then use said divine hotline to argue that everyone else is doing it wrong in other areas, ones that you personally are not doing but a lot of your fellow Christians most certainly are.

And they have, and have been fought tooth and nail by Christians every step of the way. Apparently, Christians existed who both suported and opposed skavery so it's a bit much to claim it's all Christianity's doing. And that's not accouting for the Bible's actual support. If your of the "inerrant word of god" schol of thought on the Bible, it's comdoning of slavery is a bit of a problem with claiming its a good moral source.

KC,
Given you were allowed to beat your slaves with a rod no bigger than your thumb, I'm not sure that really follows as being "not all that different from community service". And as long as the slave died from injuries three days after the beating rather than earlier, it was all good. Yeah, not seeing the supposedly moral version of slavery in the Bible. It's not that all slavery is the same, but that .biblical slavery isn't as good as people, who would refuse to actually work under those conditions themselves, were portraying it and is still pretty horrible.

And its still slavery. Saying "Oh, but it wasn't the really bad kind of slavery" does not do much for people's opinions of you as far as being a good source of moral judgement.

Usually banned.

Allowed it once with cooperation of the player involved. In Kingmaker, one of the characters was evil and worshipped Droskar but was the only person in the group who had Knowledge (Religion) so no one knew he was evil. When a clerci joined to replace a deceased PC, the dwarf in question said he was going to have to retire the character. He and I worekd out a good send off for him, with being a traitor, underground city, the whole works. The look on the other players' faces as they realised he really was a traitor was a thing of beauty, and that was one of the best sessions we've had, but as a regular thing it screws the game over.

It seems odd that, given all the bonuses to Intimidate this class gets, epecially when making sudden appearances, that only the Avenger actally gets Intimidate as a class skill.
I realise that each specialisation needs a different skill list to a certiain extent, and that class skuills aren't that big a deal, but it seems odd. I would have thought the Stalker at least should also get it.

As a suggestion, why don't you treat the swift action that you readied as an immediate action (decribed as a Swift action you take outside your turn). So sure, you can do this, but it means you can't use a Swift next turn. That's probably far closer to RAI than permitting or forbidding Swift readies in their entirety.

No more than your free will is currently constrained because you cannot fly.

How would never getting sick constrain your free will? How would healing from injuries so rapidly that death was almost impossible constrain free will? It would eman you couldn't kill people, but nothing stops the attempt, which is all free will guarantees.

Surely a WW movie could be excellent because you don't have to do a background story, she just is.

These are her powers, this is her attitude, this is the nemesis....etc.

Of course, to create a new comic series you have to build upon the past & interweave it into a coherent narrative - but it could work for a movie.

Except so many superhero movies have been little more than an origin story. It seems to be what they want to do. An origin, maybe a further development featuring a classic foe, then we reboot the series. Maybe a third movie wrapping up a standard 3 act story arc.

Sure, they could just have Wonder Woman around in Man's World fighting bad guys, but far more likely they'll cover Paradise Island and some kind of origin for why she's the most powerful of the Amazons and then why she left. And they probably should. There's just as much to introduce for Wonder Woman as any other superhero - pretty much whichever take on her you want to use.

Hey, she might be the perfect comic book movie character after all - you can have a whole series just telling different versions of her origin story.

Pretty sure that definition means Donna Troy is the perfect movie superhero, followed closely by Power Girl and Hawkman.

  • robbery (from looting all the orc, goblin, and mook bodies that did not get away)
  • grave desecration (from the various crypts, etc that we fought the undead in ...)
  • grave robbing (... and then looted)
  • arson (from use of alchemist fire, burning hands, scorching rays, and the ever popular fireballs)
  • brandishing weapons (because that's what you do with weapons ...)

  • discharging of firearms in a public place (again for all those gunslinger PCs)

It would be the trial of the century. ;)

The bolded one puzzles me. Your PCs let mooks get away rather than hunting them down and slaughtering them, and anyone in the vicinity "just in case"? Truly gaming takes all kinds. :-)

This is somewhat of a derail, but... yes. It is. It is *exactly* the very definition of racial segregation. There's a world of difference between this and, for example, just setting a time and place for people of color to gather without, you know, disallowing whites.

Coming from an Israeli I find this statement rather ironic, given the whole point of the state of Israel is a 'place where Jews can be Jews and be safe', which means it intended as a safe room for Jews on a global scale.

Kalindlara,
There was some discussion at the same time in the LGBT Gamers thread which confirms your 'misinterpretation', at least for some. The messages that were deleted were more of that depressing same, as you surmised. The ones that remain are the ones that Paizo thought it could tolerate. The ones that didn't survive had a very good reason not to.

As for how they should appear? As people who are LGBTQ or non-binary. Much the way all the ones who are people who are straight appear. Paizon's included LGB since the beginning and are now having those characters be more prominant and seem to be including more of the other letters, althoguh it may be that they're just being more prominantly displatyed as well and I missed earlier examples.

Most people like that are too fundementalist to play already, so we can expect to have a lot of breathing room already. After all, if you think that calling that elf druid that worships nature spirits "they" is too much, you will be horrified by all those completely cisgendered Asmodean inquisitors and quite the game anyway.

Are we still living in that long gone moral guardian era where DnD players were communing with the devil and spreading immorality?

Let's talk actual experiences, not "Well, I think there'd be bigots".

Go look at the threads for Wrath of the Righteous, especially the first book, to see more than a few howls of outrage about the inclusion of a married female couple. There was more pushback than outrage, granted, but there were howls. Much was also 'forced down throats' especially when a male couple appeared the very next installment.

I just find it sad that people are so ignorant of their own history that they can't see how strikingly similar all these arguments are to the ones used in Loving vs Virginia (I mean, I'm from the Uk and I know this s$~~. How can you not know what happened in your own country within your parents' lifetimes if not yours?) Then, people were arguing that the Bible outlawed mix race marriages (so, Aranna, apprently 50 years ago, Christianity was a religion that discriminated on racial lines, at least in some versions) and because of that, they shouldn't be forced to acknowledge such marriages. Same arguments, same bigoted attitudes, hopefully, same end result.
