Here is a good distinction at work I share my position with the owner's son. If I want to keep my job I am obligated to show up be at my desk and answer the phone among other things. His son has incentive to do so, by that I mean his dad has flat out told my supervisor that he won't relocate or fire his son he can come and go as he pleases deal with it. But if he does manage to show up for at least 3 days a week he gets he truck payment made.

Let us not forget that the CR thing means that long lived big bads who have risen in power are less likely to be remembered.
Commoner's can remember the orc captain who raided their village last fall. However the evil lich who shows up each winter to take a sacrifice.......... who are you again.
And that's my disconnect here. I don't typically get up in arms over casting choices in movies or TV. But when I see an uproar over a casting choice because the source character is x and the casting choice is y. But then when the character is Y and the casting isn't its fine and all kinds of reasons are listed as acceptable. I just look for consistency in people and it bugs me.
My life in early college, wrangling 7 guys who worked odd rotating shifts and homework to boot. My rule was if we get 3 we are pushing through
Well technically a gems worth would be based on crafting measures getting the right cut and such. So in fact a raw uncut diamond does require skill to be worth its full value. Though whether or not that is applicable to fabricate is the real question. Though maybe you could use 5k gold worth of coal for the fabricate check?

The hands of effort is also speaking as SKR repeatedly said about Standard PC races.
Okay I tried the last year method of going to the spammers profile and flagging but getting a message each time that I tried to go I got a page with this message
You have made too many requests for the same page too quickly.
Please wait a minute before trying again.
I can go to anyone else profile. Is this paizo's doing or have the found a method to make us go into each individual thread.
Edit: trying to flag can't keep up!!
I can agree with that. I have just seen so many times of people tripping out over anything martial not being purely and completely realistic. Kinda like when weapon cords got a nerf in part because a developer couldn't really do it that well with his mouse.
Well speaking of Caster/Martial disparity, my gears get ground when people freak out at a Martial doing anything thats beyond real world capability.
What you mean your monk can punch through a stone wall in 5 mins......anime is influencing the system too much.
Your fighter can fall off a 300 ft cliff and walk away......systems broken.
Your barbarian can swim in lava and not die........too unrealistic.
Your adamantine sword cuts rock better than a mining pick.......it's not a lightsaber bro.
Your wizard can stop time teleport in a demonic horde mind control half the enemy forces and nuke the rest........that's the way they made the game don't be upset just house-rule it.

So between this and the threads on slavery, how does one even play anything other than a true neutral fighter with no ties. I seriously want to know. I see threads where even the thought of raising the dead should have you kicked out of the game. But having strong religious beliefs could also be being a jerk. Owning slaves is being a jerk and needs to be abolished, but if you press your anti-slavery Andoran feelings to hard its also a problem. Is this more of a board thing or is playing anything with a belief system possibly asking for trouble.
Jiggy your talk of curve balls reminds me of the first campaign i ran after I got married. Things went great and fairly predictable for the first several months, mostly due to having 5 fresh no ttrpg experience players. I ran them trough Expedition to Castle Ravenloft when they hit the right level. The group was so intent on stopping this evil vampire they rushed the castle the second day there without weakening Strahd at all. My plan was to play it straight and give them a reason to back out and plan, so when they met the first real tough opponent (the demon on the parapets) I expected a death and run, and was more than willing to let them escape. The party fighter ( a very holy and devout warrior of Kord) and the groups barbarian decided to save the others by bullrushing the demon off the edge. Both of them rolled 20's and sent it and themselves plummeting. The party druid saved them from death by healing them after flying down in wildshape. So they rolled with it finally encoutering Strahd the next week. This time I was sure I could scare them out. Instead they trapped him in a wall of stone with the druid. The druid dropped a sphere made from dust of dryness and then shifted into a large Crocodile. 6 rounds later she had managed to hold the vampire lord under water for 3 rounds to kill him. This was one of the only times I have ever truly wanted to change things up and let the bbeg pull a John Cena. But I rolled with it they freed the towns people. Never did send a vamp against them again though.
