Well, you are game developers. You don't really NEED to be at the office to do that. Time to start dropping some dice and doing some playtesting at the airport and/or hotel.

Wish I was there. Sucks being a responsible adult these days. :-(

So, I have a cert to play a dhampir and have a concept to play a ranger with natural attack focus from the APG. Problem I can see is healing him is difficult as dhampir's require negative energy healing.

Since the Ranger's spell list includes Cure spells, could he use a wand of Cure Light Wounds charged with negative energy to heal himself without needing to roll for UMD?

If not, have any other players figured out a way around the negative energy healing for dhampirs in PFS?

Hmm, this is most disheartening to hear of. I must agree, if there is proof to these claims, then it would be to the best interest of our cause to spread the banner of freedom across the face of Golarion to have our dear Major step down.

I do not fault the man, mind you. In my younger days . . . hundreds of years ago, I too was rather . . . **seems to drift off** . . . where was I? Oh, yes, infidelity.

That said, our leadership must be the flag we tie to our mast to proudly display to all the nations of the world and our enemies of freedom that these are the examples we strive to reach. Anything else makes ourselves seem both vulnerable to reproach and, more importantly, suffer from the same corruption that we fight against in our enemies.

Now, of course, we may desire new leadership and it may come to pass that we will receive this change of leadership within our ranks. However, I do not see anyone stepping up to offer suggestions or willing to put their names forward for leadership.

So, the question is, then, whom amongst us believes that they know of someone that can accomplish greater deeds and rise us to greater heights than our dear Major?

I would personally love to see some rules that allow for a weapon to grow in power as the character gains levels. D&D 3.5e had the "Weapons of Legacy" book that covered this, but I think the rules could have been made better. I'd love to see your take on these sorts of mechanics for the Pathfinder RPG.

I was a big fan of "Weapons of Legacy" back in the 3.5e era. If you can include mechanics that allow a character's magical weapon to grow as the character levels, that would be great. I've always thought it rather cheap that players acquire that +1 longsword at an early level, but discard it as soon as the next "bright and shinny" shows up. If a way existed for the item to increase in power as the character levels, that makes the character's bond with the weapon that much greater, and adds a deeper sense of RP and ownership within the game.

In my personal opinion, it's too little too late. The game system they put together for 4th edition was overly simplistic and overpowering, built to make the power gamers drool at the opportunity to play the game.

Also, keep in mind that most publishers can't wait to get to release a new edition of a game (even if one isn't required at a time). Most people playing D&D really only needed the PHB, DMG, and MM. Any other book beyond the first three were completely optional and were purchased if they actually saw a use for it in their game. But, if a new edition is released, you're guaranteed that every single player in your hobby will have to purchase three new books in order to stay up to date with the current rules for the game. So, releasing new editions can be financially convenient for a games publisher just to squeeze a couple extra dollars out of their players.

At the end of the day, I've made my peace with WotC, but they will never see me buy another D&D product from them in the future. Pathfinder has a strong (if not likely, STRONGER) gamer following than D&D has. The truth can be seen in sales numbers in stores, number of games played at conventions, and in the sheer number of awards Paizo has received over WotC (who traditionally dominated in gaming awards). I'm fully behind the Pathfinder product now, and am completely happy with where they have taken the hobby.
