I had a room with two very easy to find traps, one was armed and the other was disarmed, disarming one armed the other... That was the hard thing to detect.
It was a 20' by 10 corridor with a door at the end. Opening the door triggered the very obvious horizontal guillotine. Disarming the horizontal guillotine armed the vertical guillotine over the door and visa-versa.
Didn't kill the party but made them very wary

Kind of colours my politics.
An examination of why this person is/isn't an idiot would be more enlightening.
"White van man" is a stereotype found in the United Kingdom of the driving of smaller-sized commercial vans, perceived as selfish, inconsiderate, mostly working class and aggressive. According to this stereotype, the "white van man" is an independent tradesperson, such as a plumber or locksmith, self-employed, or running a small enterprise, for whom driving a commercial vehicle is not the main line of business, as it is for a professional freight-driver.

Marmite is for poseurs.
Heresy... Peanut & chocolate is a Mythically Epic combination.... It is the killer move, maybe only topped by prawns, cold beer and Hendrix blaring on the stereo on a hot summer afternoon while sitting in the shade at the beach.
Top keep it relevant - In our home games ambiguous rules are settled on by player GM consensus and change only if they change in the FAQ. I can see how it may cause frustration with PFS games.
Ha ha ha Nutella is for the soft Vegemite is for the hardcore... It puts hair on your chest and it's made from beer.
That and I can get peanut butter Tim Tams now.
I can't speak from experience, but everything I've heard from friends in the military is that games like that are often encouraged, because they encourage teamwork and tactical thinking, and allow for a bit of relaxation during a stressful time without requiring a lot of equipment (books aside, and from what I've been told mostly they tend to play core only so they don't have to carry much).
I have one current and several former players both in the Australian Army and Navy... Before laptops, tablets and kindles Traveler was popular because it fit into a small box. Now most have the rules in PDF on their devices.
I just find it odd that a company has that level of control over your health....in Australia if you earn a lot you get private insurance and if you are an average person you mix both private and Medicare.
I am very lucky though while my employer is an Evil Bank - us minions and henchpersons get "unlimited" sick leave (I have never had to use it - 2 weeks is the longest I have had off sick at pay) paternity leave 2 weeks, maternity leave 12 weeks.
We also have
Defined diversity policies that are very actively pursued insuring everybody is treated with respect in the workplace.
- we still haven't had a female CEO, yet.
Angel: Is this your big strategy for gettin' the ring back?
Spike = our game style, we plan and then we kick the front door in.
Once we surprised ourselves by sticking to the plan and things were going so well we stopped and sabotaged ourselves by taking insane risks resulting in character deaths.
I think there needs to be more of a focus on cultural interpretations of deities in the write ups. In the real world you can't walk two blocks without running into 2 or 3 different ways of worshiping one of the monotheistic goods and umpteen different interpretations of that gods message.
Extrapolating that to Golarion and looking at Erastil for example, what would he be like if he was worshiped in a matriarchal society - if that community was happy successful and safe would he reinforce gender roles in that society because it's working... I would certainly run it that way.
A nomadic Kelid wandering the frozen north is going to have a completely different view of who is most important and what the gods roles are to a person from Nex.
In an average persons shrine in the home would you have many or all gods represented... To give thanks to the good and beneficial gods and to placate and avoid the wrath of the evil ones.
What would a contract dispute between an Abadarian and an Asmodian look like.
What are the names of the gods in Halit or Garundish.
There is so much more to be done to flesh out the gods.
Sounds exactly like my group in Sydney..... Currently adventuring through Carrion Crown, lots of jokes but there have been some memorable moments.
They spent a lot of time in Cuba, just to get a better Latin sound... Doesn't help you though, with getting gigs close enough.
The best gig I saw them play was the HomeBake festival in Sydney.... I saw them, the Beasts of Bourbon, and Machine Gun Fellatio.
The Cat Empire is an Australian ska and jazz band formed in 1999. Their sound is a fusion of jazz, ska, funk and rock with heavy Latin influences.
They are one of my favourite bands and awesome live. It's summer music..bbq, beers on the patio or porch... Afternoons at the beach.
Reminds me of an Alexi Sayle bit in the Young Ones
"I mean, they told me while at school, if I got two CSEs, when I left school I’d be head of British Steel. That’s a lot of nonsense, innit? I mean, you look at statistics, right. 83% of top British management have been to a public school and Oxbridge, right? 93% of the BBC have been to a public school and Oxbridge, right? 98% of the KGB have been to a public school and Oxbridge.
All you get from a public school, right — one, you get a top job, right, and two, you get an interest in perverse sexual practises. I mean, that’s why British management’s so inefficient. As soon as they get in the boardroom, they’re all shutting each others’ dicks in the door! “Go on, give it another slam, Sir Michael!” BAM! OW OW OW! “Come on, Sir Geoffrey, let’s play the Panzer commander and the millkmaid, EW EW EW EW! YOO HOO!”
My conspiracy theory is that Michelle Gomez's character Missy is the same character she played in the Green Wing, Sue White the HR consultant from hell. (lots of NSFW language)
What gives you the right to determine who is what, if somebody says they are Aboriginal and their skin tone whiter than mine....
Then that is good enough for me, in fact legally that is good enough for Australia, other people don't get to determine your ethnicity.
Telling people they are too white or too dark is racist.
You don't get to sit on the board of who is and who isn't.
Is it because it's bright, shiny, bouncy, has no sharp dangerous bits, plastic, gets swatted around by hot people in swim suits, pops under pressure and blown away in strong gusts of wind.
Your are especially not allowed to take them to the cricket... Security will come and pop the ball and kick you out of the grounds.
Telling somebody your skin is not dark or light enough to be X race is racial vilification - it doesn't matter about the persons politics.
I will say it once more denying somebody's cultural heritage based on skin tone is Racial Vilification.
Mecha poet, thejeff, GWL, and EnterisShadow, maybe you should have think about your approach to this as Scott has pointed out where you engaged in questionable arguments to prove your point. Tainting your arguments for everybody else.
It's Wear it Purple Day.
The site For Wear it Purple.
"Wear It Purple is a youth-led organisation that exists to support and empower rainbow (i.e. sexuality and gender diverse) young people. We are young people, working for young people.
Wear it Purple believes that every young person is unique, important and worthy of love. We believe no one should be subject to bullying, belittlement or invalidation: whoever you are."
My company has been very proactive in promoting the day, I am borrowing my wife's purple scarf as I don't own any purple clothes.
I found a list of SSI games on wiki - I played a lot of those games.
Are there any modern equivalents of the counter based wargames?
Yes a mine field on a hair trigger. Hama was not sensitive to that. He tends to use the same set of my world should apply everywhere else values as some Americans (everybody actually) do.
My apologies to Adam if I got the wrong person.
My middle daughter loves dragons and dinosaurs and she is having a dragon party for her birthday.
She went as Astrid* from HtTyD for her book week parade (don't know if you have book week in the US - but it's like Halloween without the candy and it's your favourite literary character and it's at school).
* Astrid has a different name in the books.
I spent hours making metal studs out of paper clay and painting them silver with my citadel paint. :-)
Friends of ours are both art teachers and their son wins all the time.... He came as a dragon with a papier-mâché head... There is a friendly rivalry, we will never win but it is fun.
She came home very sad a few weeks ago and asked if she could change her party to a little pet shop party...
We are having a dragon party again and her friends are invited.
This is a problem Americans tend to assign their cultural and racial baggage, to the rest of the world. There is an attitude what happens in the US applys everywhere else.
When you accuse a Serb or a Hungarian, or a Croat or a Greek of being privileged because of their skin colour you are being very ignorant of thousands of years of occupation and oppression and slavery. But hey they are white and everything must be easy and good for them because that's how it is in the US.

So if you wanted to have have the psychic side of a Victorian/Edwardian steam/ diesel punk game... Pathfinder meets Downton Abbey, this would be the kind of book you look at.
If you watch any of the original multi Doctor stories they call each other far worse and spend a lot of time bickering.
I loved Capaldi - reminds me of a cranky Pertwee.
NuWho fans - need to get used to retcons, continuity faults and lies because that is the way it is and what I love about the show.
I would be very happy if a lot of "fans" rage quit show - then it would be my show again and I wouldn't have to listen to the butt hurt whiny fans cry about it all the time.
It's a very selfish attitude I know, but I loved it as it was and I like it as it is.

If so I will be purchasing it, you write stuff I like.
I love the Dream Scared press version and hope both will work together.
