The task of taking a first cut at chronicle sheets could be farmed out to the best of the best of those folks easily.

The first cut is never the bottleneck, it's the last cut where it has to go through the coordinator/developer. There's a reason we added ten RVCs to process input before it gets to Tonya.

I will close my laptop between my turns to conserve power when I need to. Generally speaking, I know what my stats are should I get targeted during the enemy turn, so I don't need to see my sheet at all times.

Considering the hefty delays I have seen in waiting for players to fill out the sheet, I'm going to trust in myself to write it complete and legibly from now on.

This is the procedure currently set out in the Guide. I agree, it would provide spoilers. So the use of a Sign-in sheet as Undead Mitch commented on, is a better solution.

I don't see it in the guide anywhere.

Where do you see that it says to hand out chronicles at the start?

I think Ostog is going to be just fine for Season of the Runelords.

I personally find every campaign setting is innately morphic simply due to the nature of the game. My own 'Generica' uses Greyhawk as the template, and changes from there to suit the whim of the group. (Naturally, the fact that you CAN change the setting does not equate to you MUST change the setting.) But if I decide to use Golarion (as we do for APs) there is no reason not to change it as I see fit.

Watching the plot thicken around our characters has been the best part of the replay so far.

Second best is getting to play with BigNorseWolf and TetsujinOni.

Are we sure this thread is not really about...

magic breaks (bends) the "rules"...

The problem with that is that magic doesn't break the rules because it's magic. It breaks the rules because it's fantastic.

And we should really let every character be fantastic in a fantasy game. Not just the ones with magic.

It's kind of like deviating from feat trees.

Just because you took Power Attack and Improved Bull Rush, it doesn't mean you have to take Greater Bull Rush and Bull Rushing Critical (or whatever that means).

You can choose to take Cleave instead, or even Improved Initiative or Point Blank Shot.

It's the same with skills. Just because you maxed out the Survival skill for 5 levels, it doesn't mean you can't take a rank in Ride or Swim at 6th level.

Classes are just classification constructs. They're part of a rule set that describes your character. Some characters become more specialized and focused, some become more versatile.

This is the best explanation I've seen so far. Bravo, sir!

It used to be that Protection From X spells protected you from all summoned creatures save for the alignment opposite the spells targeted alignment. So in 3.5, a Protection From Evil spell still allowed Good creatures to attack you. (Not sure why exactly, maybe so there was no argument about them being able to cast beneficial spells.) Pathfinder changed that to be the spell only protecting you from the mentioned alignment.

All I'm asking for is a refresh of GM star credits annually. Making it a boon was a mistake I believe.

I believe it was the perfect idea. It allows for evaluation of the effects before deciding to increase or reduce availability. I have faith the John and Tonya will decide to remove the need for a boon when they have evaluated the results and determined that no harm has been done.

I'm pretty sure that's because your characters aren't 'concept characters' in the way trollbill was using the term.

'Professionals'? Who do YOU travel with?

damn. I literally just spent three days with my own wife's grandmother. She is in her 90s and i enjoyed every moment. She has no fear of death, and is waiting for her time with patience, and is caring for her great grandchild happily and spends the rest of het time watching daytime tv. I will miss her when she goes.

I'm glad. My own grandmother deteriorated before I could introduce her to my wife. She got to meet her, but it wasn't the same Grandma Shoppy I knew growing up. It's a terrible thing.

My wife's grandmother passed away yesterday. It's turned our plans for the week upside down for the most part. But it looks like she will still be able to make it to Disney next weekend. After this weekend with family, I imagine she'll need it.

Paladins are a classic reminder that you should roleplay a character as if the character wasn't just a fantasy version of you. People don't want to be challenged to take the high road anymore because it's too difficult for them to reconcile their own 'my way' attitudes with the ideals a Paladin is supposed to represent.

I really don't know what you're talking about. I've never had a problem playing a paladin.

I find the biggest distraction being players who aren't practiced at working these suggestions into the natural flow of the game. But there isn't much you can do about it other than give them time to grow and learn how to do it more subtly than "YOU! Do you want to be Exchange?"

You can absolutely hand out faction missions, but the players cannot use them to earn their second prestige points. It can be a useful roleplaying tool and a way to help players feel connected to their factions. But keep in mind that one of the main problems experienced by GMs was faction missions becoming a distraction from the actual scenario and slowing down the session. There are also rare cases where a faction mission might prevent a party from achieving their secondary success condition.

You don't seem interested in honest discussion, so I'll take my leave. I'm sorry you're upset with some of the design choices of the class. I hope you come up with houserules that your GM/group is amenable to. (I recommend a 1st level talent that mimics air bubble, perhaps scaling from limited duration to unlimited later on.)
