If you also think suicide is just laziness, I would honestly question if you've been in such a mental state IRL. It's incredibly tumultuous and laziness isn't involved whatsoever.

Er, no, he's saying it is lazy writing, not that the act of suicide is laziness.

No, that was a nerf because The Gaming Den's Frank told Jason in Paizo about Alchemy throwing rogues are great.

I mean, think, touch ac sneak attacks!

So Jason made sure to nerf quick draw of them and sneak attack of them. Then greases application of it, etc.

And then they wrote the Alchemist.

Yeah, you can summon, but the summons have crappy to hit numbers, or you can try to dominate, but that is also a crap shoot.

Also, one anti-magic field and all your casters have a sad face indeed.

Outside of GM fiat AMFs don't happen, and summons to-hit doesn't matter when the enemies are paralyzed, blinded, stunned, and all the other wonderful things casters can inflict on foes.

The fact that you drop resources like candy to counter casters says a lot.

There are a number of house rules in PFS that I would enjoy porting to my own home games, actually.

You know, if I actually used XP. ;)

I hear tell someone ran a PFS scenario on a road trip, in the car.

Between arbitrary decisions of what is and isn't allowed that varies season-by-season (Tieflings, anyone?), the absolute constraint to use premade modules defined per season, and the inability to develop a true rapport with your teammates and GM, it just falls short for me on many levels.

Everything you have said here is something I have encountered in home games. So I don't understand your dichotomy.

If you were boggled by people staying in bad games when good games were available, I would understand. But you are ascribing blanket statements to organized play when those statements apply to individual tables, not the entirety of organized play or the entirety of home games.

This idea is as faulty as if I were to talk about how home games are all rules-ignoring Magical Tea Parties without the firm guidance of a Glorious Campaign Overlord and players are at the mercy of tyrannical GMs who abuse their authority without concern for their players fun.

I replay alternate universe versions of my characters. So their classes, feats, generally any mechanical options are subject to change, while their personalities tend to stay the same.

Completely unrelated, but my halfling rogue just hit 12th level last night while traveling in the Mana Wastes. I don't recommend it if you can avoid it. Pretty sure we all would have died without the gunslinger bullet spamming the beasts.

I've been doing it that way for years and haven't found it to be overpowered -- especially past very low levels.

Cyzzane nearly murdered our party with a pack of negative channeling undead. I don't want to consider what would have happened had they been healing each other at the same time they were harming us.

On the other hand, it was the first time in the campaign that my sohei/druid went negative.

Well, there was the time Sierra earned her faction boon by bursting 40 healing to save a fellow Pathfinder as well as Lady Zadrian, her faction leader. And Kurik gets to enjoy shaping his channels in ways that negate the need for Selective Channel, which is good considering his lack of charisma.

I think it goes back to the idea of 'praise in public, punish in private'. Paizo can't officially state that some part of their product is poorly made due to the bad marketing effect that would have from casual customers who don't read everything posted. So they have to deal with such things in-house, behind NDAs. This of course does not mean they agree that some things are broken. I don't think they subscribe to the 'Timmy card' philosophy, and actually believe that most of what they put out is useable in all but the most optimized games. Because they aim for unoptimized games where the differences don't really come up.

I do, but I don't believe they CAN be perfectly balanced.

That doesn't mean balance should not be pursued.

I usually respond to questions of 'why am I being sent on this mission' with 'because you are the agent we have available. If you know of an alternate better suited to this mission, you have five minutes to fetch him'.

I'm not sure it is supported in the guide however.

The point of alignment is to ask your GM what he rules each to mean, and use those definitions. Even if they are in direct contradiction of the written rules, because what your GM is using is what matters in his game.

Funny you should mention that. I've had characters in PFS fall 60 feet onto bare stone then stand up and keep fighting.

The spring loaded version changes the action economy. It might make sense that this would not provoke. Until you think about a spring driven, sharp object being thrust into your hand. I don't know about you, but that might distract me a bit so I make sure I don't stab myself.

I've played too much Assassin's Creed to accept that argument. :)

I absolutely agree that the authors may have intended for [Evil] spells to be Evil acts. They did not, however, explicitly write it as such.

No amount of 'this is how it SHOULD read' will convince me that it IS read that way.

Yeah it's really not that explicit. I mean, they only use the word evil four times. That could mean anything.

Our disagreement has always been over "does the use of Evil power make the act Evil?" with you stating that the use of Evil makes the act Evil while I state the alignment of the act determines if it is Evil.

Much like bombing the city is not evil because you are using nuclear weapons but because you are murdering innocents.

Just another argument about the ends and the means.
