Sounds good. Samsung is a brand I have come to trust in my home, for televisions and computer monitors (and very recently, a refrigerator).

Didn't even realize they made laptops.


Thanks for the tips. I'm definitely not interested in anything top of the line at this time.

Back-lit would be really ideal for me, and is something I did not even think to consider.

I would still be thankful for any brand/model recommendations.


I'm a teacher and a Pathfinder GM/occasional player.

The job is more demanding than ever, and I don't have time to do the tech research like I used to.

I would love any thoughts and suggestions on the best Laptop for the money. I'm sure I want something that runs Windows 8.

Horsepower wise I'm just looking to run email & microsoft office, along with reading large pdfs, and a few table top gaming apps (Herolab and Ttop RPG to be specific). Maybe a bit of internet browsing.

Dell had a low level laptop on sale over labor day for about $375. I'm sure they'll have a similar deal around Black Friday time. My last Dell, which was an expensive PC gaming affair, fried out after only 2 years and 2 weeks, and I'm hesitant to return my business to them.

Will I be happy with an entry level laptop performance wise? Do I want to pay the extra for touch screen capability? Those tablet/laptop hybrids I've seen are intriguing.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.


I'll take some good old fashioned Jack Chick over Robertson any day. Some one in my neighborhood used to give out his little graphic novels every Halloween.


I put the four poster maps into relatively inexpensive poster frames and hung them adjacent to each other. It works well enough , each map seems to have just enough overlap that you don't loose much from the cross frames.


The autograph plate is on the back inside cover.


Just keep an eye on actual ebay auctions, and not ridiculous robo-priced 'buy it now' options.


It's easy enough to get 98% of the out of print materials if you do a little E-bay stalking. Amazon works as well but it's harder to find a deal on OOP there.


Regular Nintendo Wii might be a better choice. Just avoid all the shovel ware games.


I was a long time Aria player.

I'm pretty sure we lost players to Amia during various periods of turmoil.

I'm a Lumberjack and I'm OK.

I believe the cost prevents people from reserving many more events than they are likely to show up to. The cost is fairly nominal, and helps to insure people only pre-select events that they actually mean to attend.


Amazon still has a release date of January 2013.


Awesome pics.


Adventure Quarterly is similar to Dungeon.


Sorry I am new to google documents. I had to check a box so you can edit it. Note you have to access the spread sheet from out Obsidian Portal wiki link in order to edit.


Kingdom Turn #29

Spoiler:

Stability Check: 1d20 ⇒ 19

Income Check: 1d20 ⇒ 14

Random Event Check: 1d100 ⇒ 60

event type: 1d4 ⇒ 2 adventurer event
1d4 ⇒ 4

Rowdy Adventurers: An adventuring party gets drunk and causes a major fight in a tavern, inn or brewery, trashing the place. The building is
damaged and needs repair before it can be used again. Lose the bonus granted by the building until it is repaired (1/2 the BP to build a new one). If no such buildings are present in your kingdom, randomly choose a building that is damaged. Adventurers can get drunk anywhere.

That's 12 months of kingdom building. Should we go for 12 more? I don't think it would be a bad idea to further grow our kingdom. We should probably give Bill time to strategize and advise before we push on.

Good event!


The table I'm using has more over all events. We've rolled mostly 1's on the d4 which takes us to the d12 bad event table.

Pest Swarms: Bug swarms (spiders, locusts,
etc.) have become a problem for nearby farms.
Roll 1d8 to determine how many farm hexes are
affected. Make a Stability check for each affected
hex to determine if they were able to protect the
crops and fend off the invading pests. Success on
the Stability check halves the Consumption
benefit of the farm (from 2 to 1); failure means
that the farm provides no Consumption benefit for
the month.

Monster Attack (continuous): A monster (or group of monsters) attacks the kingdom. The GM picks a kingdom hex in which the monster is
active and determines the type of monster by rolling on a wandering monster table of CR 7 or higher. Either the PCs choose to set out to defeat the monster or a Stability check is made representing local garrison action. If the monster is not defeated, Unrest increases by 4. If your kingdom’s Unrest is 5 or higher, the monster’s hex becomes unclaimed. (See Losing A Hex on page 18.)

Animal Lord Stability Check: 1d20 ⇒ 17 (if we determine a separate check is needed for that)


Bad event! 1d12 ⇒ 2

Animal Crime Lord Activity (continuous): A
large awakened animal (such as a horse) has set
itself up as a crime lord in a random city district.
Make a Stability check. If you succeed, the animal
is caught and charged with criminal activity. If you
fail, the crime boss reduces all Economy bonuses
from buildings in the district by half (rounding
down).

Stability check: 1d20 ⇒ 1

According to the rules, we will endure that penalty until we can make the stability check, which we can retry next turn.

About a relative topic, my group has a good running argument questioning whether a vertical threat counts as flanking when paired with an attacker on the ground.

This commonly comes up when flying and nonflying pcs or monsters are working together.

I always argue that it is not flanking, unless their is also an attacker threatening directly under (so you can draw the imaginary line straight through the cube).

Frog God Games Frisbee/Dice Tray. A plastic flying disk with Tsathogga logo. Turn it upside down and use it as a portable dice tray.

Please provide an option for media mail next time. I have excellent local service and receive my mail just fine no matter how much or little I pay.


This thread has been created to facilitate Boondoggle's Kingmaker - A Game of Thorns.


Disappointing that Serpent's Skull dice were passed over.


The Zombie Walk is Friday night. The costume parade is Saturday afternoon. Both have been highlights for my own kids.


Also keep in mind that official convention events run 24 hours a day. 1 day at Gencon can be like 3 days anywhere else.


It really depends on what and how much you want to do.

I've gone 6 years in a row, but I don't really do much actual gaming there. I can game any day of the week at home, some I'm more interested in everything else.

I'm mostly interested in cruising the dealer hall, and checking out all there is to see. Seeing and meeting a lot of really interesting people.

For me a 1 day badge works fine, and I have 30 extra dollars to spend. 2 days has worked fine for me. I'm bored on day 3. So I usually get a 1 day and hang out another half day in the perimeter.

If I went to Gencon to actually game 4 day would be the only way to go. Also if money is no concern you might as well kick in for the 4 day.

Gencon is not just inside the dealer hall, but spills out into the streets all around. I always spent a lot of time outside and in the pubs, no badge required.

If you only go one day it probably should be Saturday. Because of the costume contest you have the highest percentage of attendees dressed up.


The people demand it.


I've deffinetely been looking forward to this.

My initial reaction to the art was 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2 rounds of stun accompanied by a blinding spell effect.

Perhaps it will take a little getting used to, reminding myself that Wayne Reynolds is not the panel artist.


From the receipt:

"When your reward is ready, Frog God Games will send you a survey via email to request any info needed to deliver your reward (mailing address, t-shirt size, etc)."

Is this also where we will specify which version of the book we want, or do we need to email ahead about that?


I've got no interest in the mini or the T-shirt. Really wish there was one more additional level between 100 and 175 to get just a signed/numbered copy.


Just the kind of thread I've been looking for.

Read this book in about 5th grade about circuit outer space racing. The book was a lot older than me. Prob from the 70s. I'm almost positive it was penned by a fairly prolific sci-fi writer.

What I seem to recall is that the circuits had 'short cuts' you could opt to take but they were extremely dangerous. Seems like complex math was involved.

Was a really fun book to read way back when, I would love to revisit it if I could for the life of me remember who wrote it and what it was called.

Or maybe he is dead, and Jim Messina took his place a long time ago, living his double life as both Loggins and Messina...

Irregardless, Kenny Loggins will live forever, riding the infinite airwaves of adult contemporary radio.


I got some Pathfinder Minis Black Dragons through them. They easily had the best price I could find, and they arrived in perfect condition, unlike the one I ordered from a big box store.
