I played in the special at Tier 13 with Blazej and Pirate Rob. After the game, I realized I was playing with Mattastrophic, and TriOmegaZero was GMing!
There were two other fellows whose board names I sadly did not recognize and thus had nearly no chance of remembering.
Thanks, guys, for a memorable special, and thanks to Pirate Rob for arranging the seed for the tier 13 group.
If this begins with a balor vs silver dragon I guess ... it ends with pugwampis vs goblins.
Wait, no, it ends with little demons falling over a cliff while the PCs are crit-tackling a Balor!

This ship has numerical stats similar to a TIE Fighter (same attack and evasion, but 2 shield + 2 hull rather than just 3 hull). It also retains the usual Rebel ability to target lock, and has an ability new to Wave 2 (Boost, which allows it to cover more distance as an action).
One of the A-Wing pilot cards also has the most hilarious ability I've seen in the X-Wing minis game so far - Arvel Crynyd, who served as Green Leader in Return of the Jedi (you know, the guy that screamed and ran into the Super Star Destroyer bridge?), has the ability to be able to target a ship that the A-Wing is touching (which normally can't happen). This means it is a viable strategy to try to crash this ship into other ships. Enjoy!

Oh my poor chat server that day...I think I heard it die in a pyroclastic explosion all the way in Bend.
I kept a log from that day in chat.
Our first awareness of what Paizo was doing came at 18/03/2008 21:52:19 in the log.
Pardon the PG-13 language throughout...
Despite already seeing that titan's artwork in the Bestiary 3 PDF and hardcover, I only just now noticed the resigned posture of the small figure standing in front of it.
I can't tell if he's thinking, "Fine, just kill me now", or, "My GM is a $#@$."
Not sure how often this comes up, but there can be ambient sounds in an environment that become familiar to whoever lives there (air flow, dripping water, etc.). If those ambient sounds are suppressed, it will alert them that something is amiss.
So sometimes, a silence spell can actually give you away.
Just something to keep in mind.
"It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried."
Sir Winston Churchill.
As I remember it, the quote was, "Of all the governments in the world, democracy is the least evil."
I'm not sure which version is more accurate.
That's all I got.
Erik and Lisa have already made it very clear that they will continue to produce tabletop content, because that is what they are in this to do and that will continue to be their primary focus.
I'm not worried about how the playerbase might be split by this, because I think the gaming paradigms are going to be different between the two. Plenty of MMOers still play tabletop RPGs. A few months ago, I was one of them. They are different game types, and many people want to scratch both itches.
I found it easy to believe in God when I was younger.
Then life responsibilities, independence and money got involved, and somehow I decided I didn't need that anymore.
Then life fell apart. About 6 years later, slowly, the pain subsided as I reacquainted myself with my faith.
Today I consider myself God's implement. If He wants me to drop everything and go somewhere else, I will. But for now, I'm where He wants me - a life with a fair amount of joy, tempered with work and the occasional fire, paused with the occasional play and rest.
It does bug me sometimes how others can so smartly insult the faith of others without a real basis, but I figure they will learn or remember in their own time. Their words no longer task me in any way.
I have a hard time combining a couple of abilities and realizing their implications until someone else tells me about it. While at GenCon, I was told there was a vague area about how the Magus can or cannot combine Spell Combat and Spellstrike.
Spell Combat allows the Magus to treat a casted spell as an offhand attack, which in essence lets them cast a spell at -2 to attack where applicable, and also swing with their blade at -2.
Spellstrike allows you to deliver a touch attack using your blade, which gives the spell the advantage of using the crit range of your weapon (cough, keen!).
And in Core RAW, you can cast a touch spell, then step or walk over and perform the touch.
So, to take this combo to the max...
- Can a magus cast shocking grasp, step 5', and use Spell Combat + Spellstrike to swing once with the blade to deliver the shocking grasp at -2 to hit, and swing yet again with the blade at -2 for the second attack, also delivering the shocking grasp if the first attack misses? (bear in mind I assume the blade attacks are actual swings, not simply touch attacks, so I'm trying to hit the full AC of the target here and cause blade damage + the shocking grasp, as long as it isn't already discharged).
What of this combo can I NOT do?
Also, just to be really cheesy...
- If the victim has metal on them, does the blade attack get +3, as in the shocking grasp spell description? (Just a curiosity, I'm thinking no).
Thanks for any help.
