I hate that I'm the perpetual GM. It's been 4 years since I have sat on the other side of the screen, and longer than than since I had a character get to play in more than 2 games. The worst part is if I bring it up someone will run something but it won't last long enough to enjoy it before it gets dropped, couple that with the fact it probably won't even be pathfinder and it just sucks.
No it's not, go look at some of the old writings on how games went back in early TTRPGs. It was in alot of ways players Vs. GMs and was about being smarter than what was thrown at you. Please can people stop blaming MMO's for everything everyone doesn't like in RPGs?
So, and I know I'm going way off topic here, we are gonna just keep using an inflammatory term for no reason other than to beat people over the head with it? I mean that is what it seems like here that until everyone agrees with your definition we are gonna keep on. We can do this with a lot of other threads as well I mean optimization is really just a nice word for being a munchkin, or a powergamer.
I helped the first by giving out a poker chip per hero point they have. With the second issue I have been thinking on which led me to a similar thought to what you had here which i just put up over on the homebrew section.
So you're OK with everyone taking defiance + heroic defiance, with feat mastery, and becoming unable to die or be crowd controlled for 16 rounds at level 11?
Yep that's kinda right up this systems narrative especially for a martial. One of those "The castle guard watched as Alenthor dropped to his knees from the lich's spell his breath leaving his body. Fear gripped them as the horde of undead began approaching now that the knight had fallen. As the lich raised his staff again prepared to unleash death on the city before him Alenthor gave out a horrendous yell and stood shaking off the coils of death he swung his blade deep into the lich sundering it's soul from it's body. Knowing he had but a few moments before he was truely gone the knight gave a rallying cry and charged forth into the mass of undead before him." kinda things.

I'm from Wisconsin, and while I'm always tempted to sneer at how the Seattle area panics whenever there's snow, there actually are some factors which make it a lot safer to stay in -- generally no salt because they don't want it getting into Puget Sound, tons of hills, and very little equipment for dealing with snow.
I can't understand Southeast Arkansas' reaction to snow. Seriously we get a forecast for like .5-1 inches and the stores become barren of all milk, eggs and bread (but lets not worry with getting bottled water or canned goods). People freak out worrying that its gonna be '73 all over again. We have more wrecks before the snow even really starts falling than once the roads are actually bad. It drives me nuts there will be a light flurry that's not even sticking to the roads and the entire highway is moving at 5mph.
And here is the text for another feat, which has text indicating that the item used for it actually does take the spell.
Ray Shield (Combat)
Prerequisites: Dex 15, Missile Shield, Spellbreaker.
Benefit: You must be using a light, heavy, or tower shield to use this feat. Once per round when you would normally be hit with a ranged touch attack (including rays and similar magical effects), you may deflect it so that you take no damage from it. your shield suffers the full effects of the spell or effect, if applicable.
While I know its not the exact same the text from Crane Wing implies that "deflecting" something treats it as a miss.
EDIT: PDT agrees with that as well.

We had one who told us how excited he was for what he was working on, told us he wanted to run a story that would get us involved with the story and world and put us with a new level of immersion and attachment. This sounded awesome until he finished with , "then I wanna see the looks on your faces as the BBEG strips it all away and kills your characters."
Only reason that thread came back was that people wanted to gawk at the bizarre pedantry it featured, right?
No we have had a major rehashing of the base arguement including if you measure a jump toe to toe or toe to heel, as well as now side arguements based on what does and does not constitue total/maximum speed for the round and how far one can thusly jump.
At somepoint someone will actually read the thead instead of just commenting and notice we have quoted your method at least 3 times now lol.
But your assigning a motive to voting for Trump that based off that choice a person is either racist/sexist/homophobic, or is 100% okay with those beliefs. In much the same way that idiots on the right assume everyone who voted for Hillary or Bernie wanted lots of free stuff, all guns taken away, are okay with muslims killing gays, and how idiots assumed if you voted Johnson you just wanted legal weed.

Well clearly falling paladins leads to martial caster disparity, paladins fall so often that they only work they can get is hiring out as warriors and everyone conflates them as just really bad fighters.

Nope still blaming Capt. Yesterday might even have to court-martial him, he keeps leaving sick bay an touching things.
I said if that was the only reason, if other things have been said or done that paint a wider picture of a person sure you may not want to be at their table. But if the only thing you know about the guy playing the elven wizard is that he voted Trump and you refuse to game with him at all over that then he isn't the problem.

Do you find yourself in need of a good advocate? Lord Wraithstrike has much experiance as a rules lawyer how hard could criminal charges be?
In KF if a class needs a skill or is supposed to be good at it then they will get their ranks in it free, so no the rogue or wizards won't be better at tracking than a ranger, or better at religion than a cleric simply by having some ranks it.
For the cost of one feat you can get another skill at max ranks on top of your free ones and the ones granted through Int. Also keep in mind that unless something changed everyone also gets one rank per level in a spefic secondary skill. So that fighter has 6 skill ranks a level even with a 0 INT make them a human and grab open minded again and your at 8, still with 0INT mod.
That doesn't mean you can't be flat-footed it means that your not flat-footed simply based off of the fact that you are flying.
