Hi Eileen. Welcome Back!

Hmm. Your premise strikes a similar chord as the premise for the old Earthdawn setting by FASA. You could consider looking into some of the more accessible details of that setting to help your own thoughts on the matter.

If you are looking for a deity replacement, consider Philosophies and/or Emotions/Aspects/Passions

edit: i think the metaphysical tide comment is something like...'the level of magic rises and falls over the centuries, and when it reaches it's peak...portals open' or similar. that's just my own impression though.

Hi Rathendar, Well as they say, their is nothing new under the sun. And so the fact that somebody else beat me to the punch is no surprise, buts that's ok.

I would be very interested in hearing any ideas you have in "If you are looking for a deity replacement, consider Philosophies and/or Emotions/Aspects/Passions".

Obviously as mentioned I need a replacement for good and neutral alignments if I don't have Gods per say.

edit: i think the metaphysical tide comment is something like...'the level of magic rises and falls over the centuries, and when it reaches it's peak...portals open' or similar. that's just my own impression though.

I agree I think that is the direction he was going and I like it.

That was indeed what I meant.

Why only use literal wells/portals - why not use a combination of subtlety and bluntness?

Some sort of metaphysical tide / constellation between the lower planes and the material plane could not only work to activate hidden wells/brood chambers in the debths of the world, but also strenghten the corrupting influences of certain places or object (if the objects are inert in between the cycles of the tide, maybe they are well known to collectors, museums, sages or even priests as artifacts of the past suddenly starting to corrupt or dominate their owners / nearby folks).

For the advancement of cultures I would probably go with larger cities that present the 'high culture' think ancient Greece or Rome, or maybe early renaissance. These cities could stand on the ruins of foremr cities (both literally and in the sense that artifacts and written history of former ages sped up their cultural advancement - at the same time that would make the cities home of the corrupting influence of artifact of the last purge as well as fonts of knowledge, hidden in vast libraries)

Rural places would be more dangerous (monsters and spawn left from the last purge, perhaps ancient races that have fallen into a barbaric state, tainted by the power of the lower planes (if you want to use 'mostly evil' races like orks, goblins or ogres that might be their place).

Some smaller places might have survived the last purge because their cultural advancement didn't catch the eye of the lower planes (small islands with a higher culture of art and muse but with very little in the way of war and magic, perhaps).

I would, as did other posters, advice you to read the novels up front. You will know best what is OK for your son and the novels vary so greatly in style and content that it is hard to give you a conclusive answer for all of them.

Also, while the show was great, a restart wouldn't be measured against the show that was, but against the expectations of its fans. Since the fandom by far exeeded reality, a restart of firefly would be hellbound from the very beginning.

Yet, if Paizo wants to retain creative control of Golarion, it would require a video game company to work with more input than just the license itself - I guess any AAA company would need a pretty good reason to do so (aka the license brings a very large customer base).

Just get them to use 'digga' - it sounds similar, it was created by the (Hamburg) hip-hop scene and it is completely non-offensive ;-)

Make the skill usefull for other aspects of the adventure - sure a few very high dc traps can pe fun from time to time - but they will soon be as obsolete as the dc 30 trap is right now.

Disable device could be the skill to reactivate the ancient clockwork machine that is part of the dungeon (with much higher dcs for different steps, finding the right parts in the rubble of the dungeon, non-trap encounters and much at stake since destroying the machine could possibly take away the only know way to defeat the BBEG)

The first and second Rise of the Runelords books make terrific standalone adventures.

The main attraction of RPGs for most of my regular group is to play their imagined character in the presented setting (be it Golarion, a Galaxy far, far away or the Buffyverse). To present the setting and the story as immersive as possible, aspects their characters (or relevant NPCs) explore become part of the presented setting. Sex is (sometimes less, sometimes more, as it is in RL) a part of every characters life - from near abstinent (by choice or not) to almost lecherous - without expicitly talking the x-rated stuff - we have all been there and leave that to imagination and a few remarks.

Violence and gore are part of the setting, too, but we use them sparingly for better effect - sometimes to set the tone in the story, sometimes to help presenting the impact on the characters (a hardened veteran won't react that much to the blood dripping from her blade, so there is little use in repeatedly describing every gory detail, a young wizard who just lived through his first life or death fight will react stronger, so the stench of the flesh burned by his spell becomes part of the description, as do the screams and other gory details).

Other dark themes may be part of the story or the world, but I never (in the never absolute sense of the word) do unchangable stuff to PCs while they are unable to act or react (no, a coup de grace or an abduction does not fall under this rule, but an abducted PC will most likely be able to react to the situation ASAP), so no PC-rape, little in the way of PC-torture and similar stuff.

I will add that I know my players pretty well in and out of the game and most of us play more or less always their RL gender (I don't know if that has impact but considering the topic it deserves mention) apart from me (would make Gamemastering a living world pretty hard...)

What I' really want is a prequel - or even a line of prequels. The story told in the first 20 minutes of Pacific Rim would deserve at least one movie.

That said, i am hopeful for the sequel.

I played the beta, then forgot about it when I changed my gaming rig and had to re-install my library. I just found out the final release is out now and I am re installing.

The beta was a bit rough around the edges (crashes, very random mission difficulty, tghe possibility to loose a mission with all of your guys going crazy before you did a single move), apart from that, it looked and played like an updated X-Com (the original). The graphics aren't anywhere close to looking good, but they do the job. The beta was set up to be a great hardcore strategy game, I hope it delivers.

Hmmm - Was just looking on the Paizo sight and discovered that for $39.99 I can pre-order the Pathfinder Pawns: Bestiary 4 Box. Or, for $24.99 I can order the PDF.

Just as a question, perhaps I am confused, but what the heck value would any PDF of a cardboard pawn be? So I can print out paper versions of them which I can then tape to the other pawns I have? So I can look at them on the screen and show them to friends to prove that I am so rich(or maybe poor, or stupid) that I buy pictures of pawns?

I don't know how they line up (pawns being one of the few lines I don't subscribe to and didn't check on the BB pawns), but you can probably have them printed on cardboard - that might be a tad more expensive than buying the whole thing (shipping can be very expensive, though), but you can have the pages printed that you need and as often as you need them.

I dunno. Taking the feelings, burying them in a deep dark hole and never thinking about them again seems to work better for me. I can't say I've ever felt better after trying to talk things out, it keeps whatever's bothering me at the forefront of my mind.

I haven't said anything about 'talking things out', nor have I said anything about 'burying you emotions'. Suppressing emotions, as far as I understand that concept is about trying not to feel the emotions at all, not even getting to the point where you bury the emotions you don't desire.

I really can't in good conscious "advise" anyone on how to do the one thing I'm constantly telling them not to do.

This is kind of interesting. Years ago the definition of healthy was the ability to supress it (a male approach). Nowadays they're advising talking about it expressing it an actualizing it (whatever that last one means). I'm more than a little skeptical about the efficacy of talk therapy.

Walking/exercising used to help me a lot when i wanted to smash things. So did finding something that either could withstand a smashing or didn't no one minded being smashed.

I mostly change / add NPCs to bring the action closer to the PCs. Some of this is done when I first laked to my players about their characters background, befor finalizing it (RotRL examples: The dandpoint sage became a dwarf and a past tutor of a dwarven cleric/sage, two varisian cousins that spend a good chunk of their childhood in Sandpoint were friends with the Vinder Girls, Shalelu appears in the background of a half-elven character), some of the work is done during play (players show more interest in aan unimportant npc then in an important one they might switch places, etc).

Sometimes I add / change quests to forward a PCs personal development.
