In my opinion what you want to do with the OGL is to encourage 3PPs to publish complimentary products rather than competing ones.

I think Paizo is missing trick with this by not opening up Golarion, and in particular APs, to 3PPs.

It's certainly been done before (Glorantha comes to mind). Paizo could state quite clearly that anything published by 3PPs is not consider canon in exactly the same way that 3PP Pathfinder content is not considered canon.

The advantage, however, would be that 3PPs could publish a whole host of AP-supporting material, in much the same way River Nations was but with greater integration, in order to tailor APs to the various diverse tastes which are found around the community. For example we could have:

Additional side-quests or even major new complimentary adventures
Crib-sheets, charts and other GM aids
Hero-lab content
5 and 6 player conversions
Conversions for pre-pathfinder APs
Updates to APs to bring them in line with the new books
Major overhauls to re-imagine the APs for different play styles (more or less RP, more or less combat, etc).

All of these things would support the sales of APs rather than detract from them.

It seems like a win-win situation to me, and if some 3pp wants to write an adventure where Galactus comes down and devours the whole of Varisia - what does it matter? It wont have happened in the *real* Golarion.

Legendary Games do a Gothic and an Oriental series of adventures and supplements that have "nothing" to do with Carrion Crown and Jade Regent, but totally work well during and in between the adventure paths.

One of the CS's primary deities is all about cooking people, on top of the cosmic insanity deity and the make babies with all things deity previously mentioned.

Cooking people? Are you referring to Gyronna (not one of the main 20), or another one?

I'm assuming that the other two are Zon-Kuthon and Lamashtu, although one could substitute the entire Cthulhu mythos for Zon-Kuthon when it comes to cosmic insanity.

The unholy text of Urgathoa Serving Your Hunger is partially a cookbook. A people cookbook.

That's a misconception that started with an incorrect translation and spread by intolerant enemies of the church

Serving Your Hunger is a cookbook for people.

It's about bringing people together

The artwork for Demons Revisited: every chapter title page has one of the iconics about to be killed by a demon, in particularly nasty ways. The two I find most chilling are...

Lirianne, possessed by a shadow demon, firing her pistol into Seelah's head, blowing out her friend's brains.

A glabrezu gleefully showing the corpse of Droogami to a caged and despondent Lini.

Now, now... that wasn't Droogami's corpse. It was just his fur. He might still be alive. Kept painfully so, even after he was skinned. The artwork doesn't make that part clear.

:O

I don't think that makes it better

My actual time ran was 03:30:14, but I crossed the finish line at 03:50:27 (there were lots of stops and cake and sasquatches!). Part of the reason my time is so slow is that towards mile 11 my hip flexors started giving me a LOT of trouble (on a 1-10 scale at the time, probably an 8; about 3 hours afterward I'd say a 4). But I'm pleased with myself. :)

Unfortunately, last night I just got news that someone running the half with me didn't make it to cross the finish line. I'm hoping to participate in the memorial run for them in November, should it take place.

That sounds ominous. Is your friend ok?


Congratulations.
What was your time?
And on a scale of 1 to 10, how much pain are you in?

I've flown domesticly in Australia a few times, and to Thailand and back onces.

I've never seen seats reclined all the way back interfear with the person behind them.

Maybe Australia has more space between rows, less incline in their chairs or maybe I'm a poor judge of space.

In my opinion, this post has the best one yet.

Only if the paper had written on it

"I prepared Explosive Runes today"

That's exactly what I wrote on the ball of paper I handed to the player :-D

They intercepted a phone call which was was planning a random killing, kinda like the man who was butchered on the street by extremists in UK.

In that case then it was decisive action that saved lives.

But 1 charged out of 15 arrested? How many of those arrested had nothing to do with it?
Did they have any evidence on these people, or were they targeted because of their friends of friends?
Alligations of racial targeting have been made, but we'll have to wait for the media hyperbole to die down before that claim can be assessed.

This doesn't sit well with me, but my anti government bias may be getting in the way.

This week I have to be spot on with eating, so I prepped myself all kinds of yummy lunches for this week. Today I have grilled chicken caesar salad, strawberries, a pepperoni stick and some pirate's booty.

The race is on Sunday.

You got this. This is when the training pays off.

On Sunday take it one step at a time and enjoy the view

So since someone started talking about game mechanics, let me ask this. Since armor isn't gender specific (even full plate is individual specific, not gender specific), if a female foe is killed and male character takes her armor and dons it, does it still have the boob window and/or missing midriff or does the fantasy powers make those cover up?
CRB page 150 wrote:


Full Plate: This metal suit includes gauntlets, heavy leather boots, a visored helmet, and a thick layer of padding that is worn underneath the armor. Each suit of full plate must be individually fitted to its owner by a master armorsmith, although a captured suit can be resized to fit a new owner at a cost of 200 to 800 (2d4 × 100) gold pieces.

You'll have to have to go visit an armor smith to get the window patched/cut out before you can use it.

In this example, is the armor +1 enhanced or higher?

So Paizo has dialed back the sexiness of it's female iconics.
Boo hoo.

These guys have always been about inclusiveness, and that extends to telling woman that they don't have to be a sex fantasy to play the game.

@Lord Frye
No one has said having sexy art in fantasy is badWrongFun .
What is badWrongFun is sending the message that there is only one way women should be depicted in fantasy.


Chip & cheese sandwich.
Works with any flavour of chip but Salt & Vinegar has a nice kick to it.
Microwave till the cheese melts and enjoy it while it's still hot

We do, but our GM excels at bringing these NPCs to life.
Loosing an NPC in one of his games is like loosing your favorite character in a book or TV series.

YellowDingo because while some of his threads may be considered outlandish, their ideas are entertaining.

And Orthos, because whenever I see a comical yet relevant alias chiming into a conversation, he's usually the one behind it.


Last week was a junkfood binge and my fiance wants something healthy so this Friday will be Basa filets baked with garlic butter on sweet potato/carrott mash + assorted steamed vegies.

Then Saturday will be a game day with more lollies and chocolate :-)

Can we be sure this is thread necromancy?
Did anyone see the body?

What if the thread traveled from 2010 to the present instead?


At 1423, I'm too sexy for this thread.


Aroden was one day out from retirement his return when he came across a pack of devils knocking over a church of Cayden Cailean.
They got lucky with a crit and it turned out to be a bad day to leave your amulet of natural armour at home.

Wizards can't wink.
While we usually leave 90% of our brains un utilized, wizards need much more space than that. Often 500% of our brain power is required to master the most basic arcane marvels.

Fortunately wizards have learned exceed petty things like limits, but some mental re routing of the mind is required.

Because of this Wizards are no longer able to wink.

And they can't wiggle their ears either.

Wizards can grow glorious beards.
Sorcerers can not. The magic in their blood that gives them their powere damages the hair follicles over time.

After many years most Sorcerer go completely bald.

Last night I saw the movie The Forgotten.
It's about a woman who looses her son in a plane crash 14 months prior. She's still grieving until people start telling her that she never had a son and that she's delusional.

Cue the conspiracy.

Partway through the movie a thought accord.

DC Animated should do a Question movie. It would be the bomb.

I see two possibilities. One, the obvious part, is that it's made of pie. I mean, of course. The second alternative is that it's really an armor spike golem, a being completely composed of armor spikes.

But that just leads to the question,

What is the Pie that makes up the Paizo Golem made out of?


I have a backlog of novels to read. And this may help me finally finish twilight.

But the main reason I'm trying this is for the treadmill. Ive wanted to give reading a go while running but holding up a book interferes with my stride and I can't focus on the text when it's sitting on the console.

I'm hoping extra large text and autoscroll will counter tbos problems.


Yesterday I came across an article on Spritz and was instantly intrigued.

Spritz forces you to speed read by quickly showing you a text one word at a time.

It isn't available yet, but I did find Rapid Read on the android store.
It's doesn't have the helpful red letter that spritz has and it only works off websties and text files.
Still I managed to convert Prince of Wolves into a text so I can try it out tonight during my run.

Does anyone else have experience with these speed reading apps?


Since he's playing a half elf ranger, he gets neither of those.

to any of you, whether or not you are familiar with my unique aesthetic tastes.

how many of you, would allow me to play a conversion of a Tera Online Elin in your games?

if we go by the game and it's mechanics

it's a small fey race with a pair of flexible ability bonuses without penalty (as per dual talent human), the ability to wield medium weapons and count as medium for the purpose of manuevers, darkvision 60 feet, and a 40 foot land speed, as well as a 30 foot swim speed and the ability to cast an AoE version of calm emotions centered around itself once per hour.

i need help fleshing it out, but it's one of my favorite MMO races.

My only objection would be on the basis that I question its balance, not the concept proper.

I mean, frag, they're fey. If that isn't carte blanche for weird stuff, I dunno what is.

i guess some of the abilities could be dropped

but it's primary things would be

*+2 to 2 attributes of your choice (as per human dual talent or Variant Aasimaar, to represent their class flexibility) (most Races give +2 to two of the primary stats for a given class anyway)
*Small Size
* able to wield medium weapons without penalty or change in handedness if Strength 13+ (Elin Berserkers, Slayers and Lancers are often seen carrying Large Greataxes, Greatswords and Polearms in one hand, but being able to carry a medium weapon without a change in handedness, would be a more reasonable compromise)
*40 foot base speed (in Tera, their speed is 40% faster than that of any other race in the game, but 40 ft, or 33% faster than a human is reasonable)
*darkvision (it would replace low light, it's handed out like candy in PF)
*Swim Speed 30 feet (Elins are known to swim faster than the other races too)
*AoE Calm Emotions effect centered around self once per hour with a Requirement of 13+ Cha, doesn't affect self

Do you have access to the Advanced Race Guide?

They have rules and point buys for custom races to keep them balanced with the core rules.
