Nothing says summer like sitting out on the balcony with a nice iced coffee. :)

Today is a high of 72 with a nice cooling breeze. I love it. I wouldn't even hate summer if it was always like this.

It is not-quite the hottest hour of the day here, and it is 42C (107F), with a breeze whispering directly from the gates of hell.

Sooo jealous.

...Didn't want to bump the other thread with a return greeting. ;)

I'm living in Arizona, working at a solar power plant, and enjoying a gamer girlfriend! What's up with you?

Man, I miss a lot of things skipping hundreds of new FaWtL posts.

When do I get to buy you a drink?

How's Saturday? Drop me a PM, I'd love to chat with another Paizonian. :)

Hmn... From what the thermostat says, it is on cool. I think I will turn it up to normal.

Edit - My wife hates the humidity combined with the heat here in the South.

If everyone's air conditioning went out in Florida, 10% of the population would be murdered in angry rages in just the first week.

My boss here in Phoenix has told me homicidal horror stories that I never heard the likes of back in the northeast. I'm convinced that the climate plays a part in pushing people over the edge.

I don't get having 1d3 weapon damage, there is no three sided dice! "Just ignore the four" they say. Four is the best number on a four sided dice, do you know how frustrating it can be to roll four after four after four, and then they say "Oh, well, that's a three" It's clearly a four!

Who says that? That is objectively false.

A d3 gives even odds of getting a 1, a 2, and a 3. "Roll 1d4, treat 4s as 3s" gives 50% odds of getting a 3 and 25% odds of getting 1 and 2.

Though I never had much objection to d3s, it seems enough people share your objection that 4e eliminated them. :)

Ah, the joys of GM'ing as if you're preparing for a court case.

As you all know, we have a "problem player" who pretty much pitches a fit the moment you complain about anything he does, yet his entire roleplay is, "Whom can I screw over in order to further myself?"

He must bring really good snacks...

I think I've pointed out my reasons for hating Magic. Primarily being "anything you can get better at by spending more money, even 10% better, is wrong"

That's why I EDH, dude. I still spend more on the game than I "need to", but I totally dodge the pressure of "gots haves mythic playsets = play good cards". epic eye roll

Fun game. Heck, most of the guys I sling cards with play decks I've financed and built, anyway -- only one of the six or so in our playgroup owns any cards, other than myself.

But, I completely understand your objection. Money-grubbing ain't cool; too bad they had to do it to a good game.

I play on the fringe. Standard can go fornicate itself with a shattered axe handle.

Lol, I wasn't even aware of the different formats until years after I had quit playing.

I totally get the $ == win objection too, and sadly I don't think that there's any way around it, at least if WotC wants Magic to remain popular and profitable. Maybe they don't have to be quite so money-grubby -- Hearthstone is playable for free, and seems to be doing very well -- but there does need to be some incentive for players to keep spending money. Or a competitor will likely take over.

NobodysHome's random thought of the day:

(1) No group (that I know of) in history has self-identified itself as "evil"
(2) The vast majority of cartoon villains (Skeletor, Maleficent, etc.) self-identify as "evil", and constantly call upon the "Forces of Evil"

Are we doing our kids a disservice by pretending that evil people will always self-identify themselves?

(I despised Captain Planet with a passion rarely seen in my feelings towards cartoons, but I did appreciate that the villains were simply trying to "terraform" Earth into a more polluted world more suited to their species. At least THAT motivation makes sense...)

I remember reading a YA novel back when I was on the cusp of puberty, and then talking about the characters with my mother. I said something like "I really like how character X does horrible things, but isn't outright evil. He has reasons for doing horrible things." "Why do you think bad people do bad things?" was her response.

*Light bulb on*

  • On the other hand, this is easily the most depressing election in my lifetime. As of Tuesday (after California votes), we are almost certainly going to be presented with two (realistic) choices:
    - A career criminal and lawyer (are those redundant?) so beholden to big business that we might as well stencil, "This presidency brought to you in a joint venture by Mosanto, Bank of America, and AT&T" on the wall of the White House.
    - An egotistical, misogynistic, racist "businessman" whose track record includes FOUR bankruptcies and a net worth that is LESS than if we'd had a drunken chicken randomly selecting stocks (the Index fund) for him. Yeah, he's a "genius", all right. Just like Forrest Gump was.
    - Really, America? Is this REALLY the best you can do?
  • So I'll be voting third-party. And what amazes me is the number of people who not only say, "You're throwing your vote away", but who say, "You're helping the party I oppose because xxx."
  • I do wish that third parties were viable here in the U.S., though I'm not nearly so pessimistic about Hillary. Worst case scenario I can imagine with her is that some scandal blows up in her face two years into her first and only term, and our first female president leaves a bad taste in America's mouth.

    Worst case I can imagine with Trump is that he spends eight years mucking things up, and then installing himself as Grand Chief in Commander indefinitely after conning his fanatical marks into thinking that "I just need one more term to repair America and start winning again..." And then eventually declaring himself the United States of Trump's Grand Capitalista, thus finally dropping the charade of democracy. All the while building walls both figurative and literal, oppressing minorities, and starting all sorts of wars, while simultaneously telling his Christian majority supporters that the world and their own government is persecuting them. (Except for him of course.)

    (I know that many Christians do not support Trump. I mentioned the ones who do, because they epitomize the sheer bald-faced lies and hypocrisy that Trump is able to get away with by telling people what they want to hear.)

    All that said, I haven't looked into all the Hillary scandals so maybe I should be as afraid of her. What scares you most about her?

    Perhaps we should shy away from referencing real-world religious figures when talking about game mechanics.

    Just sayin'.

    This game is thoroughly riddled with mythology: titans, angels, elves, gods, etc. I don't see why references to this particular mythological being should be different from those to any other. Would you have the same concerns about other demi-gods like Hercules or Perseus?

    Just sayin'.

    I wasn't aware that roughly half the world's population consider Hercules and Perseus to have religious import.

    Were you aware that the ancestors of the current religious majorities politicked, tyrannized, conquered, and murdered the former religious majorities out of existence?

    I like to think that the merits of treating religious belief as what it is outweighs the merits of treating it as a popularity contest.

    For example, My GM refuses to understand that the definition of full round casting in relation to spontaneous casters and metamagic. He's effectively buffed spontaneous casters. Maybe I'll play one next character.

    Back in 3.5, I asked a DM "Hey, can my sorcerer take that alternate feature from PHB2 that allows him to use metamagic without increasing casting time?"

    Him: Metamagic increases sorcerer casting time?

    Me: Normally, yep.

    Him: ...Sure, go ahead and take it.

    Me: *Kicking myself*

    Honestly, I totally get why DMs miss/ignore the full-round metamagic rule. It's a niggly little exception that one wouldn't naturally expect to even exist, given any fluff or other rule. To all appearances, it was a 3.0 concession to the [very arguably unfounded] fear that spontaneous casting would be OP which then got grandfathered into 3.5 and PF. So unless you're dealing with organized play and its necessity for conformity, there's a good argument for doing just as your DM does.

    Quite suddenly, I've found myself looking forward to two weekends of in-person gaming with new groups! Pretty sure one of them isn't going to work out long-term, for scheduling reasons. But hey, they're both 4e groups!!!

    This Sunday's game was great fun. Everyone was fun, engaged, and pleasant, with brief exceptions. (See below.) My character was gloriously foolhardy, and ended up delivering the killing blow to a dragon at session's end. There were only two flies in my pudding.

    Despite being freshly bathed and de-odorized, I probably ended up smelling of less than roses. I for some reason just could not get my blood sugar down, despite eating nothing for hours. Ugh! Also, I am a New Yorker in Arizona. So I was quite sweaty by session's end.

    And the host did a couple of things to his wife and daughter that put me off. The kind of things that may be less-than-idealistic-but-understandable-in-a-family-context-which-I-don't-k now, or may be signs of serious abuse. None of the other players seemed surprised or phased by them, and I don't make a habit of judging people based on brief and half-aware observations, so none of us commented and the game went on. I probably won't be rejoining this group for scheduling reasons, but I can't help but wonder how this group would play out if I continued gaming with them.

    Spoiler:
    Go ahead, I included that detail just to see your reaction. ;)

    And because I'm late to the what-I've-played party...

    AD&D 2e: I miss Tony DiTerlizzi's artwork, and Planescape.

    D&D 3.x: "If only 3e-style multiclassing worked the way I want it to work" is pretty much the basis of my fantasy heartbreaker.

    D&D 4e: Best D&D yet.

    Blue Planet: A hard(?) sci-fi rpg that I played a few sessions of. Not my usual cuppa tea, but we were round-robin GMing, and one of the guys in the group loved it. It wasn't until the 2nd or 3rd session that I was like "Wait, you mean the computers in this game talk like the ones on Star Trek?!" The game probably gains purchase the more harder sci-fi you read.

    Chaos Academy: An indie rpg I played once at a con. It was fun that once, but not my cuppa tea. Very rules-light, improv-heavy.

    Vampire the Masquerade: I quickly decided that I detested the GM after the first session, so there was never a second.

    Exalted 2e: Just a scene of pbp play, after which I gave up on the pbp format. Apparently 2e is super-broken anyway, so maybe it's better that I didn't continue the Exalted experience at that point in my life.

    Necromancy is an awkward school, most schools are defined by the type of thing they do: illusion spells create false sensory stimuli, evocation spells create and manipulate energy, conjuration spells produce stuff, etc... Necromancy is mainly defined by tone. For example, Horrid Wilting does AoE damage by manipulating an element, but it's creepy so its necromancy rather than evocation.

    Illusion is another odd duck. Create light *or* darkness, and it's evocation. Create sounds, and it's evocation. Create *colored* light, or sounds that sound like creatures or shadows, and it's illus-o-cation. Conjure energy or creatures from the positive energy plane or plane of fire or sixth layer of hell and it's conjuration. Conjure something from the plane of shadow, and it's illus-uration. (And conjure something from the negative energy plane and it's necrom-uration, because, screw you, school consistency!) Mind-affecting effects are enchantment, unless they are phantasms, in which case, illus-antment! (Again, with fear spells also being necrom-antment.)

    Abjuration is in a similar position. While most schools are (or at least can be) defined by their means -- evocation manipulates energy, enchantment manipulates minds, necromancy manipulates the forces of life/death, etc. -- abjuration is defined by its ends. It protects...by a variety of means.

    As I stated before, I have always felt these new classes would be better served as archetypes- even as powerful as some of those archetypes might be. The oracle makes me reconsider my hatred of new classes- yes the iconic oracle is smoking hot, but the things the class brings to the game are a true breath of fresh air, especially considering how stale the cleric can be at times.

    I remember talking to you about this at some point, but why don't you like new classes Freehold? Or maybe a better question is: Conceptually, what's the difference between a class and an archetype?

    I'm not very familiar with PF archetypes, but for a while now I've thought that which concepts get expressed as a class vs. as a prestige class/kit/variant, or even a feat is largely arbitrary. Remember when the druid was the PHB's example of a specific-mythos priest? I do wish there was more consistency when it comes to this sort of thing.

    As someone who's never read a DC or Marvel comic, I was weirded out by the Antman trailer.

    If you're a player, ask your GM. It doesn't matter what the strangers on the internet's opinions are - if he disagrees you can't show him the thread and overrule him!

    If you're the GM, just make a ruling. It's entirely up to you anyway - just got with what seems right and fair to you, because if the official answer doesn't seem fair, you'll houserule or tweak anyway.

    Sometimes the interweb has better rulings than I do.

    Someone donated their entire dragonlance collection, and they had the entire Twilight series, in collectible hardcover, I got the first book for Scruffy, thus forcing someone else to have to search endlessly to complete the collection.

    I used to like the DL novels. But then I reread the first couple of chapters of The Chronicles as an adult.

    Baaaaaad idea.

    Oh, just a Long Island jew I used to know.

    Thanks for the reminder, it's my first V-day with the gf. :)

    Is there such a thing as too much chocolate? That was her Xmas gift...

    3) Book stores. If a mall lacks book stores, it is* dead to me. (Yes, this even supersedes the Food Courts, hard as that may be to believe.)

    You have (had?) a point. Food and books are two of my favoritest things. :)

    Can't say I have much positive to say about 2e myself, aside from the settings. Never really played anything earlier, though I am tempted to buy the OD&D pdf just to see for myself what the game was at the very start. (Well, as much as any point in a thing's history can be said to be its 'very start.')

    I find malls dull at the best of times, and overstimulating at the worst.

    But then, I've never been a window- nor a spree-shopper.

    Hey! Heeeeeeyyyyyyy~! TS! Good to see you here!

    I strongly recommend trying out some solo games!

    They can be pretty great, though, of course, the pacing and structure is vastly different from multi-party games.

    Glad you seem to be doing well!

    HELLO 'LION!

    I may give solo play a shot if I can find the time...though to be honest, I have as much fun writing games as I do playing them. :)

    Going well! I'm engaged, which is exciting. The big day is in December.

    Work is good. Gaming, not so much apart from PbPs. Nothing like our awesome one-shot.

    Congrats, that's wonderful! Just please please don't get married in a non-climate-controlled barn in Rochester. ;)

    I mean kind of, she wasn't one when we got married, but she has fun with it. :-)

    Nice! How long did it take her to join you?

    My gf is more into digital and board games than ttrpgs, but she's played a couple of sessions of PF so I can already talk to her about D&D tropes and quirks. :) Also, I have free access to Dragon Age through her laptop. Which is a totally new game for me!

    I'm living in Arizona, working at a solar power plant, and enjoying a gamer girlfriend! What's up with you?

    incredibly happy beyond words that you are happy with not just the move but the job and the girlfriend who games!

    So good to see you are doing well.

    For those who don't know, tequila is the FIRST PAIZONIAN I EVER MET IN REAL LIFE and introduced me to baron arem hasevaum and a few others. He is wonderful.

    Aw, shucks! I'm glad to hear that things are better for you since the last we emailed. :)

    How's the Paizo scene looking in NYC? Sadly I'm not doing any gaming myself, but as always, I am tinkering away at a fantasy heartbreaker. ;)
