If it were just the cost, that would be one thing. But the pain of a PC goes well beyond the price tag for one as ignorant and backwards as yours truly. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a console version (yay) or iPad version (F~%% yeah!) - every time I am exposed to the new version of Windows, I weep tears of blood and beg for the sweet release of death.
X-Com 2!!! Yay!!! Okay, let me just check the PSN Store...
Hmmm...it's out, right? Yeah, yeah, there it is, released February 5th. Okay...I can figure this out...
PC EXCLUSIVE!!?! SON OF A B#+&&!!!!
Okay, okay, maybe my daughter's laptop can play it...
DAMNIT, WHAT THE HELL, I WANT TO PLAY XCOM 2!!! THE LAST ONE RAN ON AN IPAD? WHATDYA MEAN I NEED A REAL COMPUTER TO RUN THIS!?!?
*ponders buying a new computer just to play this game...*
The next patch will fix MacReady's Killshot issue. It will now correctly show 1.2x headshot accuracy INSTEAD of 20x headshot accuracy
NERFING THIS CLEARLY OBVIOUSLY BROKEN ISSUE RUINS THE GAME FOR EVERYONE!!! HOW DARE THEY!!!!
Oh wait...we're not talking about Pathfinder here, right? Never mind.

So the speakers, can they be destroyed, the radios explode when I shoot them, but the speakers just spark and s~!!, do I have to scour every inch for monitors.
Some can't be destroyed. You either have to haul ass through their field before you get bunny-foo-foo'd or find a switch of some type (been a long time since I've played this DLC).
I finally made it to the Institute and...
...was really into the rp aspect at that moment. So, when I came in, and saw my boy behind the glass, I got pissed off. The old man comes waltzing in, and I pull out my shotgun (Betsy!) to shoot him in the face before he can say anything. My metagame instincts kick in, and I hold off on shooting him, knowing that he's going to say something important and plot-relevant (though I can't imagine what he can say that will stop me from removing his head from his shoulders for what he did to my son).
Turns out, he survived the encounter.
Huh, looks like I'm addicted to alcohol (and my Charisma is too low for Party Boy). I suppose I could go to a doctor or take addictol, but...
*begins stealing and buying every single alcoholic beverage encountered.
Yeah, that'll work.
I'm not sure who mentioned Banjo as having some type of role in the moot, but I'm going to pretend that is my own independent thought,* and predict that Roy won't stop Durkon in time, the demi-god vote will happen, and Elan, on behalf of Banjo, will cast the tie-breaking vote.
*Unless the above is completely incorrect. In which case, I deny that I came up with it and refer you to the original poster who proposed the idea of Banjo's involvement for well-deserved mockery.
My overwhelming feeling about this season is that I desperately want someone to do something about Rachel McAdams hair. How about a comb? It's like someone who has food in their teeth, but it's her whole head.
Edit: I'm also looking forward to the departure of the rodent that lives under Colin Farrell's nose, as shown in the previews for the next episode.
In the history of the universe, there have been many shows with some central mystery at the core. Mulder's sister, the island, saving the cheerleader, the final cylons, etc. The resolution of those mysteries has almost always sucked (I'm honestly at a loss to think of any other television show with a central mystery that was resolved in a way that did not suck and actually fit with the information previously provided, though I imagine there must be some out there).
Which is a roundabout way of getting to the point that Gravity Falls stuck the landing last night - the pieces all fit, the resolution didn't feel like a total cheat, and it shook up the status quo in a way that feels very organic and true to the series and characters.
The Bill Cipher episodes are great, and I have a fondness for the Time Traveler's Pig (particularly if you go back and watch the other episodes and see the time traveler in the background of each one).
I've heard that the show will be returning in the summer, and have my fingers crossed. Apparently, the codes in the show go pretty deep - there're some hardcore websites out there dedicated to deciphering the various messages hidden in the show.
What is required to be a charter superscriber? I still have my tag, such as it is. I'm pretty sure I was a charter superscriber at one point, but lost that when superscriber status expanded to include cards/minis/map packs. I'm still subscribed to all print product lines.
Edit: Oh hey, I do still have a charter superscriber tag!
Edit 2: Hrm...maybe I'm not. I don't have the fancy purple border. Must just be Bella Sara for which I'm a charter superscriber.
The steampunkification of gnomes is the least of the crimes of the Dragonlance novels.
*cough* kender *cough*
"You know the problem with halfings? Bilbo, Samwise, Merry and Pippin* made them seem heroic despite their childlike size and appearance. What we really need is something that's like a halfing, but more annoying than an 8 year old with ADD and red bull for blood. Something so awful that everyone else at the table will hate the character, but that people will nonetheless defend as only needing to be played correctly."
"Okay, but is one comic-relief race really enough? What about dwarves - everyone thinks they're stoic and honorable. Let's have a race of dwarves that live in trash heaps, are stupider than goblins, and compete with the kender for being our most annoying creation."
"Brilliant. Can we do anything to ruin gnomes? I really don't understand why all these races that are the size of children shouldn't be more like children."
"Hmmm...well, we were going to make the elves like Santa's elves, but what if we turned up the craziness..."
"Don't forget the annoyingness!"
"...and the annoyingness and make those gnomes instead."
"Best. Fantasy. Series. Ever."
*Frodo intentionally omitted.
So, the OotS thread is now the how deep can nested quotes go challenge?
What other character classes do you have in the party? As others have mentioned, sneak attack can look better than it is (particularly at low levels), and the effectiveness of sneak attack can seem even greater if you don't have another high damage class in the party to provide a benchmark. For example, if you have a barbarian and a rogue in the same party, the former will hit more often and do more damage than the latter.
Bottom line, I'd suggest leaving the class unchanged and playing a little more to get some experience with other classes and their effectiveness.
Edit: Also, don't forget that concealment on the target spoils sneak attack. Of course, the odd thing about this is that the safest place to be when facing a rogue is a dark/shadowy alley...
HA HA HA!!!
HA HA HA!!!
WHAAAAAAAAA!!!! *sob* TV is dead, entertainment is dead, life is an empty void of pain and misery.
I loved the 3e style book-books, but I suspect I am in the minority on that. That said, I wish that WotC had done more in the 3e days to be consistent with the color scheme/layout and experimented more with the bookishness of them (like the locks on the core rules and the weird eye on the MM).
These covers are fine - I have no strong opinions on them one way or the other.
Was it Xykon when he caught Miko?
I'd forgotten about that entirely
If you're using the OGL, copyright law is irrelevant. Copyright law comes into play when you have two parties without an agreement between the two of them and you're trying to determine their respective rights. If the parties have an agreement (let's say, for the sake of argument, a license), then the terms of the agreement control. If the agreement contains a provision stating that you won't use a third party's Product Identity without their consent, and you use that third party Product Identity without their consent, the license can be terminated irrespective of whether the use would be okay under copyright law. If the license is terminated, then you're back in the merry old land of copyright law, which is a substantially less safe place to be.
I play a lawyer on the internet, but this isn't legal advice.
I give it a hearty meh with a few good songs and awesome super power displays.
The false love interest didn't work at all. It's one thing to try to surprise the audience, it's another to not lay any ground work for a character's sudden betrayal and dramatic switch from good to evil. There were a number of scenes where his actions were in direct conflict with his actual evil agenda (e.g., telling the angry mob not to kill Elsa when he could've just been silent about it; giving out blankets and whatnot to the suffering people when he could've just said "nah, ain't gonna happen").
Also, what was the point of having the other sister's memory erased? Was that just so she could also be surprised when her sister manifested awesome super powers or so she wouldn't understand why her sister was cold (no pun intended) and distant all those years? I expected that to have some meaning in the movie, but it never seemed all that relevant.

I like ninja psylock. It may be the horny teenager in me, but I do. I find the complaints about her overdone.
Ninja Psylocke as a new character would've been fine - a martial artist telepath is a pretty nifty idea for a comic book character. But I really liked pre-ninja Pyslocke - she was sharp, creative, and was one of the few non-telekinetic telepaths.
Goodreader is my solution as well - I can download files from my account on the Paizo website directly to my iPad using that program.
First Class was good, and so were the Bryan Singer X-men movies, so I'm optimistic. Can't say I give all that many f&$$s about continuity - if it's a good story and an entertaining movie, I have a hard time caring how it fits in with the other movies, or the comics, or the cartoons, or the Ultimate universe comics, or the alternate zombie-universe version of Marvel comics, or the video games, or the breakfast cereal, or any other X-men brand flavored media product.
*shrug* Do whatever you want, I'm just pointing out the many ways in which you are wrong on any number of topics. I'm not saying that your poor understanding of what this particular forum is based on your understanding of what a platonic ideal of a forum is might be indicative of a recurring defect in your arguments and reasoning, but it does seem clear to most in this thread that you have a very hard time separating what you like and prefer from objective facts. Similarly, you predicated much of your criticism on the idea that the designers had made a binding commitment to you personally to implement choice quotes selected by you in a manner you prefer. I suppose that objectively that might be true - maybe all of the WotC designers are stalking you and making statements and releasing products specifically to raise your ire. Stranger things have happened.
But, in any event, it is you who is failing the forum, not the other way around. The substantive discussion keeps getting sidetracked by these ridiculous meta-conversations regarding your behavior and style. Given that you arrived here with that meta-conversation pre-packaged for our consumption, it's difficult to believe that your primary interest is in discussing the topic of 5e rather than putting on a show to prove how smart and persecuted you are.
Either way, good luck with all that.
If only the people who created this forum had told us what it was about.
Oh wait, they did:
Here's where you can find answers to additional FAQs regarding the forums on Paizo and their purpose:
I might've missed the part where they indicated that these forums are intended to be a white hot crucible of burning truth, placing frank discussions and OMG Very Serious Discussions over having fun and friendliness, but given that this a forum dedicated to discussing a system for pretending to fight monsters and take their loot, I kinda suspect that if Paizo has to choose between a friendly and fun forum and one devoted to OMG Very Serious Discussions, they will choose the former over the latter.
