I am in the midst of moving, so my posting rate may also decrease, especially since I don't have internet at the new place yet. I will be making a post to move things forward tomorrow (as well as handing out some POINTS! :) Thanks for everyone's patience so far.

Well, the only sense that Alaeron becomes "absentminded" is that when he gets involved in his deepest thoughts, the rest of the world fades away almost completely. And when almost completely isn't enough, he has a few tricks up his sleeves to make it all go away except for his fixation. I think "narrow-minded" or even "singular-minded" would be a better adjective for him than "absentminded", as it is absolute focus rather than lack of focus that plagues our friend.

Heh. My daughter worked for one of the companies that did the 3D conversion for the movie, Studio D. She had to convert a "very sad" close-up of Rocket. Which meant she spent like three days staring at that teary-eyed little guy.

Currently, there are no "corrected versions", just lots and lots and lots of the printing with the mistake on it. There will not be a "corrected version" until if/when a second printing occurs.

Figures. JJ has Golarion's equivalent to the Repository of the Ancients on all things - relevant or trivial - related to the Pathfinder-verse.

Oh, I could make so many wonderful, socially unacceptable jokes about my musings on the iconic characters..... But I will refrain.

Leave it to me :)

I think I finally figured out how JJ lost so much weight. It started with a loss of appetite after having to measure and record Alain's banner pole. At Alain's insistence, of course. He had to use the Southpark T.M.I. method of measuring/calculating.

The Mutants & Masterminds 3e X-Men Recruiting Thread

Concept: X-Men reboot; Professor X and Magneto are (primarily) the same, but every other mutant isn't. Rewrite the history of the X-Men. Your PCs are the first X-Men recruited by Professor X in his battle to bring enlightenment to a world that hates and fears your kind. Magneto is convinced that a war will come and is prepared to do whatever it takes to make sure your species lands on top of the evolutionary landscape. To prevent the war, Professor X is training you to take on Magneto and any other threats to harmony between man and mutant.

System: Mutants and Masterminds 3rd Edition

PC Requirements: Power Level 8 with strong encouragement to use trade-offs to represent powerful but inexperienced PCs, PC submissions must be teen mutants, and must have minimum 1 paragraph backstory about development of powers and what brought them to the Xavier Institute of for Gifted Youngsters. You do not have to submit full builds, focus more on personality and basic descriptions of what you want the power set to be and do. Each applicant may submit up to two character concepts(if you submit two, be prepared for me to choose which one I like better.) Once a character is "pre-approved" then a full build will need to be submitted for approval. Players without access to M&M3e may refer to the M&M Powerlink SRD, and/or may request my help building their characters in herolab. Power Level WILL increase as the campaign progresses to represent training and experienced gained.

Selection Guidelines: I will be selecting 4-6 characters based on my interest on the character concepts and/or backstory. We might have a "waiting list" if there are enough applicants, to aid in case of drop outs.

PbP: Expect minimum one post per weekday and weekend, notification when you will not be able to post, preferably with more when you're able. RP will be a mixture of inter-PC interactions at the school, "training exercises", "fighting evil mutants", and "dealing with human prejudice". Slightly Sub-WB Network teenaged angst, superpowers that may be more trouble than they're worth, and giant killer robots that say "Sqaaaarrrk!" when they die. Oh, yeah, and no Wolverine hogging all the limelight. What more could you want?

Me, I'm just tired of so many times when a female appears in a Paizo product, this issue is what the thread becomes about. If any other topic were derailing the thread about this cool new character this much, someone would have already said something about please move the discussion to a new thread, most likely.

So, this time I'll do it. Can you please move this off-topic discussion about sexualization and iconics to one of the other dozen or so threads on the subject? Thank you.

How much Pathfinder stuff do I have?

Five shelves and counting.... (But not counting Pathfinder Battles or cards, which are in cases on some other shelves.)

Pretty much, the entire line of rpg content. Possibly excepting a few battlemats and maybe 1 or 2 modules, and definitely excluding several sets of cards.

And multiple copies of some of the important stuff. But then, I was the one who made sure everyone had access when I was running for the neighborhood kids.

GM: "I slightly modified Deskari. I gave him an extraordinary ability called bulletproof skin. His natural AC counts as part of his touch AC vs bullets, regardless of the range increment. So vs. bullets, his touch ac is 47. You'll have to roll better than a thirteen instead of better than a one. Go for it."

Astral Thief’s Opera Gloves

I thought this concept was awesome. especially the glove of thin air. I had a bit of trouble understanding what the glove of quicksilver was supposed to do, notably, I'm not sure what an extra dimensional space's shadow is, or what effect cutting a hole in one, or an adjacent one, would do.

In my mind, you had the perfect superstar item (innovative, fresh, played with design space unlike any other I've seen) with the first glove, and lost me completely with the second. So much so I didn't even notice the plant

Sibilant Sistrum
Aura moderate illusion; CL 7th
Slot none; Price 29,000 gp; Weight 2 lbs.

Description

This ankh-shaped silvery sistrum, with writhing asp-headed crossbars, hisses, rather than clanking, when shaken.

The sibilant sistrum may be activated three times per day by succeeding at a DC 5 Perform (Percussion) skill check. When activated, the sistrum emanates a shadowy swarm of snakes in a 5’ cone. Creatures that begin their turn in the cone must make a DC 16 Will saving throw or take 1d3 points of Constitution damage. Those who successfully save take only 1 point of Constitution damage and gain a +2 bonus to further saving throws against the sistrum’s effects for the duration of the activation.

Each round after its initial activation, the user can maintain and expand the effect, as a standard action, by succeeding at successively harder Perform (Percussion) skill checks. The second round, the DC becomes 10 and the cone expands to a 10’ cone. The third round, the DC becomes 15 and the cone expands to a 15’ cone, and so on, to a maximum of 30’. If any Perform check fails, the effect immediately ends.

A character with bardic performance may spend a round of bardic performance as a free action before rolling the Perform check each round to maintain the previous round’s DC and cone size. Once the effect is maintained at the same size for three rounds, either through application of bardic performance, or at the 30’ maximum, the effect ends.

If the user moves with the sibilant sistrum activated, the effect moves with the character. As a move action, the user may change the direction of the cone, emanating from any corner of her square.

Construction

Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, shadow conjuration; Cost 14,500 gp

Dead Horse's Mouth of Gifting

Aura overwhelming evocative; CL 20th, 10 Mythic Tiers
Slot universal;PriceONE MILLION Dollars; Weight 2.5 kg

Description

Don't look! It's eeeeevvviiiiillllll.

This item appears to be a horse's jaw ripped from its broken, severely beaten corpse. Upon further inspection, its true nature is revealed, causing the utter destruction of any whom gaze upon it(no save). Upon this destruction, the gazer rises as a shadow, joining the legions of shadows created by other who dared looked at the Dead Horse's mouth. The shadow legion is drawn to the corpse of the horse, where they futiley attempt to beat upon it somemore. Worse, since their shadows and can only do strength damage, they do nothing to the corpse. The DM should bring this fate to light as he laughs at the helpless players who have been killed by this item.

I', sorry, but all spelling, construction, and other errors in this item were purely intentional, and meant as mockery of nothing specific.

I can't believe it's taken me until today to think of a formatting/word count error I made which may have DQd my item. How depressing. Any Marathoners out there willing to let me know via PM if they've seen it?

In regards to retail and customers, I find that customers are wonderful compared to utterly clueless upper management. Especially those who send messages like "I hope everyone has a joyous [redacted] with their families." when they damn well should know that they've already required us to spend [redacted] in the store, not with our family.

Male Human (Extraplanaer Subtype) Expert 10

The human town of Sefflidge seems like so many others to a dwarf: as if some madman couldn't decide which medium to craft with, couldn't plan, and only thought: UP! We'll go up! A hodge-podge of mis-matched wooden, stone, and even baked mud brick buildings thrown together with no vision of what came before or what is to come next. Normally it would be insulting for a royal dwarf to be asked to come to such a place.

But Sefflidge has two things that make it tolerable: The Bespeckled Crane, the only Inn west of the Aldrin River to have the good sense to import a variety of Dwarven beers and ales, and a proximity to the underdark entryway you have determined will eventually lead you to Dammerhall's underground entrance.

Seven, the number of the Dwarven Brother-Gods. It seems fitting that Bryggya should choose that number to become brothers-in-arms in the quest to restore her people to the lost ways of yesteryear. So it is that seven dwarves, some of royal blood, but all noble in their own way, sit in a quiet corner of the Bespeckled Crane, making their final preparations to enter this pathway to glory.

The first step is to find the Svirfneblin village of Fasturvalt, for while a few in your party are familiar with the plots and perils of the underdark, none have been to this particular section of its recesses, and information is vital to survival when the sun sheds no light.

The following is the flavor text provided by the author, glean what information you may from it.

Spoiler:

Explorer Campaign Introduction
This is the last chance for your people. For two hundred
years, the dwarves have been scattered and leaderless.
The dwarf holds are all but gone – conquered by
invaders or overrun with outsiders. For decades now,
the dwarves have mingled with the kingdoms of men.
The humans have treated you well enough. They respect
dwarven craft and tenacity. But with every passing year,
the dwarves dwindle. Your tongue goes unspoken. Your
ways are forgotten. Will there come a time when to be
dwarven is merely another way of saying a short, bearded
man?
It was not always so. Once the greatest empire in the
all the world was dwarven. Once the majestic kingdom
of Dammerhall was where all roads converged. The
whole world came to pay tribute to the dwarven high
king and his mithral throne.
And then calamity. The great mountain-city burned
with black flame for three days. All the bridges into
Dammerhall collapsed. All the gates were sealed. The
only survivors were those who by chance were outside
the city. For two centuries dwarves have tried to retake
Dammerhall and discovered what really happened that
dark day. And for two hundred years, they have failed.
The remaining dwarven holds, once vassals to Dammerhall,
fell to squabbling about who should rule the
dwarves. Weakened by division, many dwarf holds were
overrun by orc or dragon. Some signed treaties with the
realms of men, all but forfeiting their autonomy. And
most disgraceful, some holds fell because of civil war
where dwarf turned upon dwarf.
But there is yet hope. It is said that there is another
way into the sealed city – a dark road beneath that goes
through the uncharted depths of the earth. This expedition
will be the one who will find that hidden road.
This expedition will reclaim Dammerhall and restore
dwarven glory, dispelling two hundred years of disgrace.
You have found an entrance into the darkness. Rumor
speaks of a deep gnome village known as Fasturvalt
where dwell the elusive svirfneblin, the deep gnomes.
The first step is clear – Find Fasturvalt and secure a
guide. Nothing will stop you in your quest. Nothing will
stay your hand. This is your hour. This is the moment
when the dwarven diaspora ends and where dwarven
glory begins anew. In the realms below, you will make
for yourselves and your people a Throne of Night.
