Up taught me that "up" is the direction balloons move in an atmosphere. Therefore, when you brake in a car, "up" is the back window; when you accelerate, "up" is the front window. Science!

I've seen so many Drizzt, Legolas, and Gandalf clones, I would be entirely justified in just randomly weeping. Some players handle it well and roleplay their ripoff to the hilt, but even then it just reeks of LOLJUSTSAWTWOTOWERSANDIMABADASSNAO+5BOWPLZ!!!!!1111!!...
I had a player that always wants to play Drizzt's cousin, nephew, brother, uncle, etc... Of course he never actually wants to deal with the problems of being a drow. Never hides what he looks like - but they should like me cause I've got a 12 charisma. Get's upset if there is any drow assault trying to take him back. He actually said once, "But after Drizzt everyone should know they can be good and the matrons would stop trying to get back the runaways."

I now kinda want to play a Drizzt "clone".... just an average competent drow fighter who would prefer to mind his own business and maybe move out from his mom's place, except he is constantly being mistaken for that miracle-worker liberator drow and harassed/hounded for words of wisdom and feats of daring-do. Is it too on the nose if I name him Breye'n Doe'Eyeden? :D

As for the cat laying in the food...I have no explanation at this time.

One of the sister cats is a bit of an ass and seems to trying to become a passive-aggressive alpha cat. When her sister isn't vigilant, she likes to sleep in her sister's favorite spots, eat her sister's food, and play the "I'm gonna to see how close I can sit/stand & stare next to you without actually touching you" game. Her sister is pretty chilled in general (and not too bright), so this game usually doesn't work. It's possible that passive-aggressive cat is trying to play this game with old grumpy cat, and old grumpy was just protecting her food.

Or not.

I blame Cosmo for cats acting too much like humans.

I'd like to see something similar to a class that uses Asherah linguistic viruses and Enki innoculations/nam-shubs.

I'd like to see something similar to a not-necessarily-evil class/player race that can only interact with the Prime Material with a malevolence/possession ability: as a ghost, Gyhard from Fifth Quarter, or the Yithians from The Shadow Out of Time.

Heck, get SKR do revisit/Pathfinderize stuff from Ghostwalk.

I'd like Todd Stewart :) to contribute a protean that remakes/realigns reality—including altering creatures and "casting" psychic "spells"—with psychic "singing."

I'd also like to see creatures inspired by the monsters in Fiend Without a Face, Forbidden Planet, and Jonny Quest's "The Invisible Monster." Only three creatures frightened me as a child, and JQ's invisible monster was one of them.

With all this that you want, why are you playing Pathfinder and not Mutants and Masterminds? Just an honest question, because you seem to be looking to play a superhero/sci-fi/cybperpunk game instead of fantasy.

That wasn't intended as a "must have" list, just an off-the-top-of-my-head list of ideas intended to spark ideas in the Paizo contributors/freelancers reading the thread. And I disagree that those ideas are less suitable somehow for a Pathfinder setting-neutral core book.

You, sir, are an evil bastard for this one.

Living in Florida as we do, spiders are everywhere, we get along well.

They stay outside and we, inside. We even had one outside the living room window, my girls named it Selena do not ask, they name every thing!!.

So, I am mowing my lawn and Selena moved her web to the side of the house and bushes.

Driving near, I see her in her awesomeness, seriously, the web is as tall and as wide as me and she is a beautiful monster!

Distracted by this, I drive into a another web...

Pulling the ignition key from the mower, I screech in an octave not unlike a castrato as I flail my limbs about like a drunken windmill.

And you sir, you managed to place the spider on my HEAD!!!

For reference, Fraking spider!!

sniff, sniff..not cool yo! I blame you Cosmo.

As another Florida resident, I am quite happy with the spider population, even the widow spiders who seem to enjoy biting my brother (three separate times so far). Without them, we (and every other surface) would be covered in insects and skeeters (stirges with the Young simple template).

I blame Cosmo that GMScotty had not thought this through, but I praise Sara Marie that he didn't have access to a wish to make it happen.

You know that their sensory experience constituted a unique individual with purpose and meaning. So certain that they were more than biological puppet. The truth wills out, and everybody sees.

No, this is the "LGBT Gamer Community Thread". If I wanted to read about posters, well-meaning or otherwise, expounding on theories about why I may or may not have made deliberate choices in my sexual attraction or identity (assumably in utero), or whether such elements are a biological aberration/abnormality, I would read & post in the existing thread. Not in the Community Thread. This is where I lurk to take a break from dealing with all that crap/noise on a daily basis.

Edit: This reads weird now that a couple posts have been removed.

Edit 2: I'm not trying to stifle political or scientific discussion; I'm just tired of seeing the same bones re-re-re-re-re-gnawed.

Question for Amby/Taig/Drejk/Anyone else familiar with Blogger:

Is there a way to put an image in a post and have the text wrap around it? If so, how? Also can you attach a caption to said image and have it stay with the image, while the rest of the article goes around them both?

Blogger/HTML stuff:
Once you've uploaded/inserted the pic, click the "HTML" toggle button above the composition window. Look for the IMG tag for your image:

<img border="0" src="" height="320" width="320" />

and add an align="left" or align="right" inside the img code. For example:

<img border="0" align="left" src="" height="320" width="320" />

You can also add a title="YourCaptionTextHere" that (usually, depends on browsers/versions) works as a caption when the image is mouseover-ed:

<img border="0" align="left" title="Over-attached Cat is a close-talker." src="" height="320" width="320" />

Then click the "Compose" toggle to get your normal post composition tools back.

Here's a good page for info on adding a caption via CSS (much more involved).

You know... You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan." Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of Chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about Chaos? It's fair!

I blame Cosmo that that the previously mentioned cat has me too well trained. She came over around 10AMish, stood up on her hind legs, waved/reached a front paw at me, and did her best "Mew?" begging to be picked up. Without thinking, I started to bend over to do so... ARRRRRRRGH!

She is now napping contentedly under the azalea bush, likely dreaming of further Evil.

Hmmm, I haven't gotten a postcard from Uncle Xanxost in quite a while. I wonder what he's up to lately.

I blame Cosmo for only now discovering one of the cats is a superpowered villain. She parked herself in front of her usual chair but refused to jump up, instead staring at me contentedly and happily blocking the aisle. So I bent down and picked her up, only to discover she is the newest incarnation of Graviton; she increased her gravitational attraction by at least an order of magnitude, wrenching my back. The locking & jerking spasms have subsided enough I was only able to slowly stand up a few minutes ago, but even with the naproxen and acetaminophen it is almost excruciating... it hurt less after I fell down that flight of stairs a couple years ago.

While I applaud his initiative and entrepreneurship, I really wish Cosmo hadn't decided to redevelop my back garden as West Yorkshire Pussycats' Toilet World.

Have you tried sitting out there with a microphone and narrating their activities in a polite matter-of-fact cat-show-announcer voice? Many cats seem very shy about their bathroom breaks, and maybe an audience will persuade them to potty elsewhere?

Edit: I blame Cosmo if Limeylongears' neighbors call 911 on his backyard announcing.

I'm so g%~+&#n tired and lonely right now, I don't even know what to do. Everyone I know is leaving town or getting married and having kids. Meanwhile, here I am, creeping up on 30 and still doing the same s#!@ I was doing 10 years ago, minus having a job. This is so f%@!ed.

34 is creeping up on me this December, but I remember...

that leading up to & turning 30 was like riding a street motorcycle high-speed down a hiking trail and then hitting a Wiley Coyote trompe-l'œil stone wall. I could see through all the illusions of false future promise, of unrealized realities and hopes that I'd never opened the door or failed to even spot the door, and crystal-clarity recalled all my past failings, regrets, and broken promises.

I hope you can sail smoothly and blissfully through it, but I think your brain is far too perceptive to let that happen. :( The best advice I can give is to bury yourself in creative endeavors... if you're not making art, consume and soak in it as much as you can. Nourish your soul. Don't let anything hold you back or put up limiting walls. Anything that presents itself as a restraint or wall should be closely scrutinized and then circumvented/circumnavigated. Only you can accomplish and create what is in your head, your talent, your soul; if you don't do it, it won't ever be done by anyone else.

Try to find pleasure in simple everyday diversions and momentary joys. Buy/make a couple really amazing chocolate-chip cookies (or whatever your poison), and slowly thoroughly lose yourself in all the sensations of eating and enjoying it. Sit on a loungechair on a deck with a purring cat and glass of some rarely-enjoyed delicious beverage and watch the sun rise. Or set. Really examine every least little sensation coming in through all your senses. Brief moments where your brain can just shut off/idle and shut up are blissful treasures. Down time/relaxing is never wasted; it is an essential, crucial recharging of your physical brain and emotional/creative batteries.

When the big 30 arrives, I can't tell you not to engage in alcohol or other mind-altering substances--I have only a few sparse memories of that December through early March, and my liver probably still has nightmares of it--but those poisons at best only stall the inevitable. Worse, the body seems to know it's hit 30, and you will feel awful like a 20-yro can barely imagine.

And by God, if there is something about yourself that has been gnawing it you, haunting you, feeding your self-hatred... let it go if you can. 30 is still young, and you can still grow and change in awesome positive ways but also accept that certain parts of you that you don't like are usually there for a reason. Be honest with yourself, and don't dislike your essential elements because someone/society told you that they were "bad" or "wrong." Don't carry anyone else's baggage or garbage. Don't let people f!~~ with your head for malice or lolz or because they're bored or because they're running from what's in their own head. Being true to yourself and honest with yourself is an life-long adventure and a voyage, not a destination.

If you can be creative and create, if you can enjoy the brief bits of happiness between the everyday mundane toil and too-frequent s+&!tiness, if you can accept and love yourself... you will find women. Heck, even if you are only partly down to road to being the more actualized you, you'll find women. And they will find you. Just remind yourself constantly that what you really want/need is often not what you think you want/need. And she/they will be probably be packaged completely differently than what you were expecting. Be open to surprise and trying new things. (And as a tall girl, be sure to give tall girls a chance... most guys can't deal with a girl close to their own height--or worse, taller--and never give them a first chance.)

This is just me leaving a bottle message for younger me, but if you can glean anything useful from this rambling mess, then I've accomplished one tiny sliver of positive for today. I wish you the very best, Dave, because you are a good guy and worth the very best. :)
