Excellent call on the 2nd diagonal. Thank you for addressing this!

Item left the bold tags in the submission title.

Understandable; the advice that this doesn't work is buried well.

Yes...and given that fact that it really should work it is even easier to forgive.

Okay, marriage-themed items are officially a trend.

I've seen a couple.

(Boo! Hiss!)

Ugh too tired to continue. Will resume tomorrow. 'Night all. :)

A friend voting also got a pairing of Wondrous Items on his first vote -- that seems to be a consistent bug.

bugley, can you PM me the wondrous item names you saw, if you remember? (not the first pair from last year, the ones that were against a rod or such) I'm curious about something.

Mark:

I don't recall, and haven't been writing down the names of the items as I go. One was arguably not truly a wondrous item (though it had craft wondrous item as a pre-req); the other was a straight wondrous item.

However, if I see another I will be sure to grab the details and PM them to you.

Star Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

Wow, another Wondrous Item, this time against a Rod. People sure are making it easy this year...though when is the cull again? :)

Star Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

Yup; I'm sure they're fix it soon. :)

Star Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

Staff vs. Wondrous Item. That was easy... :P

Star Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

Yup; second pull was corrected. Though everything is centered...

Hmmm...I'm an "older player" (age 42, began playing D&D in 1981) and I prefer the simplicity of 5E to 3.X/PF. 5E is closer to B/X and 1E in terms of options and complexity which is what I prefer. It still has a LOT of "new" stuff I don't like (spammable cantrips and non-magical healing are two examples) but I still would actually be willing to play it. I will not play 3.X/PF/4E.

I'd be willing to bet that there is a large group of players like myself (late 30's and older) who prefer 5E's simpler game to the complex "building game" of 3.X/PF/4E.

I'm also 42, playing since '83, and I couldn't agree more.

I used to believe more complexity meant a superior system.

I got better. ;-)

Congrats Aaron! I really enjoyed the last table you ran (Temple of Empyreal Enlightenment - I had the monk/sorcerer worshiper of Korada) , looking forward to this weekend.

That was a fun table...and especially well suited to your character. I enjoyed GMing it for you. See you Saturday!

Just got back. It wasn't...great. Probably my least favorite of all of Jackson's movies, and I'm forced to agree: He got at least a mild case of Lucas-itis. :(

Star Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

I picked these up at the FLGS with the intention of sleeving and festooning select cards (I'm looking at you, Threatened Squares) on the outside of the GM screen I use for PFS.

Star Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014, Star Voter 2015

My advice for those about to vote is: vote for me! FOR ME! You'll know my item when you see it...it's the really good one. I promise. :P

Seriously though, I'm looking forward to the post reveal threads. There is good feedback to be had (and given) -- it's fun all around.

Being able to make a halfway decent map is indeed a valuable skill. For instance, you never know if someone might some day ask you to make a village, and you suddenly realize that the turnover has to include a map sketch.

What are your feelings on spontaneous combustion?

So...I submitted my entry (by accident -- meant to "preview!") last night. The wording probably could have used another pass, but it was close. Such is life.

Best of luck to everyone!

This is but the first step in my fool-proof plan for world domination!

(Okay, so it's a multi-step plan =P).

All kidding aside, I am honored by the trust being placed in me, and I look forward to contributing to the campaign's continued growth and success.

It also ties in nicely to the "It's the black people's fault" theme. If it's not because they're criminals, it's because they must just be jerks to cops more often.

If they don't enjoy being shot to death, maybe they should trying being a little less black. /s

I don't think I ever said 5th is "wrong", just gutted, simplistic, and more arbitrary vs formulaic. People have made it very clear that they like the simplicity, whereas I like formulas.

I personally think they could have done a much better job of dropping some clunky things, but not stripping it down as much as they did. For example, I love buffs, and what they did with them, to me, is horrible. They could have thrown players like me a bone, but they didn't. Full-on gutting mode.

Maybe try referring to things that don't match you preferences using language other than "gutted" and "simplistic?" I dunno. :P

I do it chasing the tag, and because I'd really like to write a scenario for PFS. Don't get me wrong -- writing a module would be fantastic -- but game designer isn't a viable full-time career, at least for the time being. I've got five (okay, three) kids to feed!

I've said this before, but I think it bears repeating: I believe most police officers are good people doing a very tough job. It's just that, when an officer does take things too far, it's in everyone's best interest for that officer to be held accountable. Right now, there seems to be zero accountability...and that's a problem.

Fifteen million dollars divided by three million is $5 each, not $3 each. ;-)

More importantly, those appear to be hobby channel numbers, which I believe excludes Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. It isn't the whole market.

Cop breaks woman's eye socket while she is handcuffed in the back of his car, not charged. So apparently, even after you have restrained the suspect you can beat them on video and be found not at fault for anything.
Maybe she broke her own eye socket.

Yeah! Or maybe the police officer's precognition allowed him to see that the woman was one day going to be "a felon," so busting her up was justified!

I am done arguing with faceless people on the internet. Many of you deal too much in emotion and not enough in concrete fact. I will leave you to it.

I leave with this. Police officers are in the overwhelming number of cases the men and women following and enforcing the law. Criminals are always men and women breaking it.

Hmmm...you seem to be suggesting that police only ever interact with criminals. Someone should tell the courts.

Police officers die in the line of duty, therefore all police shootings are justified?

Good luck with that one.

I would like the link also. I somehow missed that one even though my search pulled a lot of water ballon quotes.

It was interesting...

Bah. SKR needs to watch some "one of these things are not like the other" videos from Sesame Street.

If he's still confused afterwards, then I hereby offer to allow him to throw a water balloon at me in exchange for him allowing me to throw a spear at him. ;-)

Because (some among) US police appear to believe that there is no problem that can't be solved by shooting/beating/killing the nearest dark-skinned person.

It's a tiny minority, to be sure, but until law enforcement as a whole gets over this "thin blue line" crap, it isn't going away.

Wow, really? I've heard Obama is out to destroy America, but not the entire human race. Though that does manage to up the level of political hyperbole, so that's noteworthy. :P

Exactly. One of the first steps I would undertake in setting up a Fantasy Hero is designing the magic system.

This sort of thing is why I no longer run Fantasy Hero (though I have a soft spot for it). :P
