Honestly, the fiction was the first thing I read in each volume. I skipped right past the AP to avoid spoiling it for whenever I got to play it. Finding out what happened next in the fiction was a huge draw for the first couple years.

End of an era.

It is sad that I will never again experience an adventure and realize I read about the events being referenced in it back in AP #X.

What's their Deity?

Abadar. He did some time as a guard in Absalom. My favorite use of it came when the party was having a lovely meeting over tea and heard invaders attacking. He stood up, made a comment about it being time, lifted his holy symbol from off his chest and let it fall. CLANG and the glamer rippled away.

My holy vindicator rocks glamered full plate. I like to describe him in cleric's vestments until the first time the enemy fails to hit him. There is a CLANG and the glamer ripples away to show his armor. I suppose I don't have to do that, but it's just a fun character quirk.

Warhorn and email addresses. Get a discussion with your players. Have them figure out what they can play.

I've asked. No responses given. So I throw up what I think hasn't been played and see who signs up.

Smaller areas don't get that luxury.

Drunk gamers? In my local stores? No thank you.
I'm fine with players sipping beer at my home games, and frequently do as GM, but we don't want to be the public face of the hobby.

It's also an issue for my local store in that having alcohol on the premises is a risk to them due to laws against underage drinking. Having both alcohol and minors in the store puts them in legal trouble. Since there is a liquor store right next door, they have to be vigilant against people bringing in drinks.

The ability to research is not the downside. The downside is half your group not showing up because they can't play. So your under-leveled 4 player table is now 2 players and the GM.

The downside being that many of your old hands look at the schedule and don't come, because there is nothing for them to play.

No, Pirate Rob has pointed out that every measure introduced to give people limited replay has been met with "we need more replay". If we continue down this path, we will eventually be at unlimited replay or near enough to be effectively there.

I find stat damaging effects to be the natural counter to stat dumps. Hilarility ensues when the 5 Cha fighter is running from the Cha damaging monster.

It's a "houserule" for a GM to factor charisma into someone's general social ability or impression?

I think the complaint was the "And upon failing a Diplomacy check with a circumstance penalty, consequences ensue." comment. Especially if the 7 Cha character doesn't have a reason to talk to the NPC.

You can say, "adventurer," or "troubleshooter," but those words don't mean anything. They're just a generic term.

That seems contradictory. They do mean something, just not the specific job you are looking for. They are still valid titles.

The word "adventurer" is like "trouble-shooter" or whatever you want to compare it to. A general term for someone who deals with the unusual situations that PCs encounter.

That probably would have gone badly against our group, even if we weren't in PFS mode. My Life Oracle might have used Chains of Light more, and the archer Ranger with FE: Evil Outsider would have done a lot of damage very quickly instead of becoming a statue.

every player but the optimizer it seems... he or she should apparently be willfully dissatisfied for other people's perceived satisfaction. (note: i'm not saying other people's satisfaction isn't important, only that this conversation seems to be forgetting that the optimizer is also a player who should get to enjoy the game.)

If the optimizer is only satisfied when he is edging other players out of the action, he needs to find a table of players okay with that type of engagement.

I've been "talked over" enough and seen it happen to even more (esp. to players younger or more female) to realize that being excluded from the game socially is at least as bad (I actually feel it is worse) as being mechanically excluded.

Absolutely agree. Every player should be engaged to their satisfaction. If you WANT to be disengaged and only roll dice, I can handle that. I'll be disappointed, but I can work with it.

Wasting four hours watching other people roll dice is far worse. At least you lost thanks to your own actions.

It was 2s and 3s in the 1-2 thanks to APL. It took 4 channels from my NPC to make the front line actually concerned about their HP.

It is far more enjoyable to actually get to participate in the fight rather than have it end after the party's first actions. Character building your way to victory removes a lot of the enjoyment along with the risk.

See though, that is crazy logic in PFS

No, it really isn't.

If you're fighting 1st level Druids with +3 to hit and 2d6+1 damage, you don't power attack. Maybe you swing for nonlethal at -4.

If you're against two balors, you bring out the dazing maximized chain lightnings or whatever cheese you have.

A response that is commiserate to the challenge before you and that gives other's a chance to contribute is far more enjoyable than ending the fight before it begins so there is no risk to the party.

Generally, you need to know what is at the locations the PCs may visit, and what are the motivations of the NPCs they may meet. Then you have those things change as events of the campaign occur. Rather than "The PCs will stop Dark Helmet from stealing all the air from Planet Druidia." you keep in mind "Dark Helmet is trying to steal all the air from Planet Druidia." and have him change course as needed. Rather than "The PCs go to Not-Stonehenge and disrupt the summoning ritual." you know that "The summoning ritual is in progress at Not-Stonehenge." and be prepared for either the PCs to show up or for the ritual to succeed, with that changing the state of Not-Stonehenge and possibly more.
