I always ask myself how a country which has spent 60 years in perennial revolution can still survive.

Interesting question. I think I'd consider the 100 years war to be a similar situation. Then again England wasn't even a nation state at that point. Maybe the Galtans just take things slow and easy?

I blame Cosmo for the breach allowing Kaiju to destroy several cities along the Pacific Rim. I also blame him for the breach being closed.

I blame Cosmo for tornadoes.

I'm a 13th level TWF paladin/fighter, so keeping track of the various attacks can get confusing. I use either a spare sheet of paper in my notebook or the gaming mat to keep track of buffs and such. I keep my sheet organized so that anyone can see where my temporary bonuses come from. It ends up looking like this (as an example):

Holy Avenger +26/21/16 (TWF 24/19/14)
2d6+13 +2d6 Holy

+1 Spiked Shield +24/19/114 (TWF 22/17/12)

Inspire Courage +1/+1
Bless +1/+0
Enlarge Person +0/+1
Divine Bond (Shield) +2/+2
Bull's Strength +2/+2
Smite Evil target +3/+9


And then from there I make changes based on the buffs I get or the target. I might make a separate one based on the smite evil target too because paladins at that level with TWF roll a crapton of dice.

The Great Old Ones do not want your worship. They do not need your patronage. They will only grant you power if it advances their cause. For in the end, all they wish is for you to die.

What do we want? Beer!

When do we want it? Beer!

All right Pend, most infantry are willing to drop pack for engagement. It's not always an option of course for a variety of reasons.

Congrats on the saves by the way, lithium cells are nice that way, glad they saved you.

Well "willing" and "able" are two different things. I'm always willing to drop the dang thing, and more than happy to let a vehicle carry the thing. which is why I suggested "buy a donkey" above.

(plus as a DM I love to see people's stuff fly away when the donkey is grabbed by a giant eagle or a young dragon, or something interesting....mwahaha)

Two examples for the pack animal thing. First, my first PFS character is a wizard named Rashepses. He has a donkey named Yubastird (say it out loud) that carries all of his things. Yubastird also works as good cover for my cowardly wizard. 15GP for a pack animal to carry all of your things is well worth the price. If you are small, it also works as a mount.

Second, in our Kingmaker campaign, a few of the party members pooled our money at first level to buy a cart and horse. We traveled all over the Stolen Lands in this thing. It helped us carry some 1200lbs of Tuskgutter back to Oleg's trading post for one hell of a party. Plus we had bacon! So instead of living out of our packs, we enjoyed the comfort of hot meals every night. It took twice as long to explore but was well worth it I think.

He's a manipulative bastard. His fixation on his daughter remembering him doesn't go a long way towards balancing out his wholesale slaughter of other people and keeping their heads in fish tanks.

I just found it interesting. He's already a complete jerk for wanting to kill off other survivors, but I thought it was kind of humanizing when he immediately crawled over to cradle his daughter. Even with a piece of glass shoved in his eye his first thought was his daughter.

Hmm...I could admit you are mostly right. Or I could continue to argue my point ad nauseum. Since this is the Paizo forum I will argue my point ad nauseum.

I had considered that, Neil. But I think the Governor has it planned with Merle all along. This is actually part of the comics. Instead of Merle it was Martinez. Martinez escaped with Rick, Michonne, and Glenn. He got them to trust him and then he sneaked off to go tell the Governor where this place is at. (Hint: he never makes it because Rick chases after him and runs him down with a car.)

And here's to finally introducing Tyreese, his daughter and her boyfriend, Donna, and Allen.

That was some fine acting by David Morrissey in the last episode. The Governor's first thought after Andrea found him was to rush over to his daughter. All of his experiments were to see if his daughter could remember him. He's a sympathetic character and not the inhuman monster he is in the comics, at least he is in regards to his daughter. However Merle is a sick son of a b@&!%. I predict that the whole final scene of the last episode was a setup by Merle and the Governor to get Daryl to trust Merle and lead them to the prison. Saw it coming.

The Tarrasque wakes up. And it loves to dance!

I have my wish list on here, a list of new hats, and a huge amazon wish list. Pretty much everything I want is one those 3 lists.

You'd think that given that a prison is designed such that there aren't an excess number of access points, that it would be relatively easy for the group to locate all of these and seal off all but a few and then proceed to clear out section by section. They do control the entire exterior perimeter right?

No they do not control the perimeter. They control one yard. They never got around to clearing the entire exterior, which is why they were attacked and overrun so easily. Sure they cleared one cell block but they had no idea where exits were or where likely rooms were. (Hint: there's probably a loading dock and a motor pool somewhere.)

The made for TV movies they did were rather good. I'd like to see this TV show

Scientists just found a ballistic gel that can stop small caliber bullets and seal up the entry.

Mine is a Paladin of Irori. I thought it was a pretty cool concept. He's basically an exemplar and a proselytizer. I unknowingly modeled him after the Champion of Irori prestige class before that even came out. He shows people what they can aspire to while also attempting to bring some order and good to the world.

He is the son of one of the priests at the temple of Irori in Absalom. This doesn't really grant him a lot of privileges because the two never really saw eye-to-eye. His father is a traditional follower of Irori, but my paladin is very outgoing and doesn't mind the occasional drink or smoke. He has taken up drinking tea and playing chess with our Tian cleric on the long sailing voyages.

He is the party's rock. He's kind of the de facto party leader because the group knows he'll always try to do the right thing. Nobody in the group does anything outright evil, but he also doesn't preach to them. He explained up front that his code was his, not theirs.

If anything, hurricanes just wouldn't hit Avistan. They would form off the coast of Garund, but they would be mostly Southern hemisphere hurricanes because the Eye of Abendego would kill any storm that might form before it got too big. Storms would probably also form off the western coast of Tian Xia and drift west towards Vudra. This is all assuming that the weather patterns and ocean currents are similar to Earth. If not, hey anything can happen. Anything can happen anyways if Gozreh decides he doesn't like your seaside village.

But that's what deities do. They uplift things because they like them.

I'm interested. I currently have Carrion Crown, Skull and Shackles, Rise of the Runelords, and Kingmaker. I'm most familiar with Carrion Crown and Kingmaker but it sounds like you guys are interested in Skull and Shackles. I have so little time for games in person this semester with school 3 nights a week. That's why I'm looking more at PbP games.

Here in Oklahoma, blue laws rule the day. No alcohol on Sundays or holidays. Boooo. And the best gas station beer I might get is a Boulevard Wheat.

Currently in my fridge: Sam Adams Winter Lager

Sam Adams is my go to brand for beer. I'm a big fan of hefeweizens and they have several different kinds. As I said earlier, The Ram in Indianapolis has an outstanding hefeweizen. I'll drink that all day.

Almost anything sold in an American gas station or Walmart, Aberzombie.

We used to run a game store game where we'd have a potluck. We'd bring in queso, pinwheels, chips and dip, veggie trays, cookies, pies, etc. It was quite a spectacle for the other regulars. Now we have a home game and do lunch sometimes.

Well, in my other game, my DM provides exotic beers, and cheeses for tasting during mid-game break, and post game.

Him and I both find enjoyment in the happiness of those around us.

...What kind of exotic beers and cheeses?

To put forth the idea of kicking him out, I need to make a strong case, and make it very evident that all other options were tried, and failed.

Make a video of him then. Make him a youtube sensation in the same way that Rebecca Black and the "Leave Britney Alone" guy are sensations.

He doesn't want to be there. Kick this fool.

Last game we had mulled wine and the players ended up screaming at each other and emptying bottles over each other's heads.

Did they empty the bottles by breaking them?

Leftover vegetable beef soup and homemade bread.

I don't drink at the gaming table but I sure do enjoy a beer at The Ram in Indianapolis when I am at GenCon.

I enjoy fighters. Several of my PF characters have been fighters, or had substantial fighter levels.

Superman is not more "heroic" than Batman or Captain America.

Power doesn't make heroes, It's heroics that make heroes.

Well...yeah he is more heroic than Batman, but not Captain America. But that's just semantics.

I am definitely interested. Now to come up with an idea.

Power game all you want. Noooo problems there. Just don't be a scene stealer.

Now, I think using creative methods to help teach mathematics is a good idea. And I can say as someone who has some numeric processing impairments (nothing on the level of a disorder, at least not a severe one, but those parts of my brain, the gears do not turn well), stuff like RPGs have helped me learn some mathematics tricks. RPGs have especially helped me practice arithmetic, which I do not have a natural talent for.

I'm not disappointed at all actually, and I don't mind the cautionary criticism either. We adopted her from the DHS system. If you've never heard horror stories about problems that DHS kids have, she's basically like a prisoner who's seeing the outside world for the first time. We're breaking those bad habits that have been instilled in her. One of those bad habits is the thought that school is bad. She doesn't try because she hates being in school. So I'm trying to show her, through a hobby that she really enjoys, that math doesn't have to be boring. What I am trying to separate is the school from the education. Just because you hate school does not mean that learning cannot be interesting. She tells me all the time that she learns more from me when I help her with homework than she does in class. It's because I make learning fun.

One thing I did not mention is that my daughter is doing 8th grade math. That should give you an idea of what kind of math she has learned so far.

Holy cow Chris. I had to wrap my brain around this one. d4s and d6s are Platonic solids for sure because all the vertices join the same number of shapes and are triangles or squares. Beyond that, I cannot brain the math hurt no good.

IF I have six magic suits of armor and three different magic swords how many different ways can I equip my paladin with magic weapon and magic suit of armor?

This is actually a good problem too. I don't remember what section if falls under but I remember doing problems like this on Khan Academy.

Not only is this thread, like the cake, a lie, it is killing my love for Pathfinder.
Freehold has 30 HP. Every time he headdesks, he loses 1 HP. If he headdesks twice whenever someone mentions Joss Whedon and thrice when someone mentions Facebook, how many times will he have headdesked for Facebook if he is unconscious at his computer after six people mention Joss Whedon's Firefly in a thread?
Once again, math has it wrong. I do NOT headdesk at the mention of Joss Whedon, and certainly not at the mention of Facebook. I actually just shove small pins in the little Joss Whedon/Mark Zuckerberg voodoo dolls I have...Man, they are covered in needles. How many needles are in this thing...I think I shove in three every time Joss Whedon's name is mentioned and two every time Mark Zuckerberg's name is mentioned....I've had them for about three weeks now, and I think Whedon is mentioned about 3 times a day and Mark Zuckerberg is mentioned maybe once every other day...Is there no way to discover how many needles I've shoved in here?

189 Joss Whedon pins and 20(ish) Mark Zuckerberg pins.
