But, I'm also not wanting to bypass the challenge...

Speaking as both GM and player here: my view (and it's JMSO, just my stupid opinion) is that you, as a player, have invested in your PC to do x, and therefore when a challenge arises that x turns into something easy/trivial/bypassed/whatever, you're getting ROI on your investment, which is absolutely fine by me.

IronHelixx, are individual GMs supposed to sign up for the multi-table Special, or is that something you plan on assigning?

His Nefariousness moved PaizoCon this year, though, so as to conflict with Every Graduation Evar, which means I'm not going. :-(

Mordrak listens to Lord Raheem's words with increasing alarm, horrified by the actions of these Ebon Destroyers. He nods in agreement at Omrax's offer. My people, the Zenj, have a saying: Bwana bwana b'wana bwana. Seeing that Raheem does not understand Polyglot, Mordrak continues with a smile. It is difficultness to translate the phrase exactly, but it more or less means what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong and one must put what is wrong right and keep what is right right at every avenue.

Time limit, then: no more than a few more rounds, and if all we're doing still is taking shots from the sylph, we'll make like Monty Python in the face of French taunting.

Seattle, WA. It is heaven. :)

It has three major strikes against it.

1.) Big city. I HATE big cities.

2.) Winter weather is too cold. The average is nice enough, but even the potential to get into single-digits is a downside to me.

3.) Too far north.

Four, if you count Cosmo.

I blame Cosmo for Orthos forgetting that very salient fact!

As I'm out of scenarios to run except the new stuff, I think I'll just start back at the beginning running everything for Core. But it'll be a while, maybe a month or so, before I can get some of my current games finished. And of course we'll be due for some new scenarios soon too and I will, of course, run those as well.

It's crazy, always-busy GMs like you that made Core so appealing to many VOs. :-)

Nope, probably not.

But I was a Bulls fan pre-Jordan — in the Quinten Dailey/Orlando Woolridge years — so I whacked plenty of 'em with my cane and told 'em to GET OFF MY LAWN.

I think the main issue when this type of topic comes up is that most people can't fathom the immensity of the gulf between "squicky" and "traumatic".

At the same time, there aren't any clear lines to indicate where you've crossed over to traumatic, in no small part because everyone is different and so the level at which a trigger activates is different.

The concerns are legitimate because some people do have triggers. It's best for the GM to review the scenario ahead of time, but it's not a panacea itself because a GM doesn't always know who's at her table. Labeling isn't a panacea either, though. There's not an easy, one-size-fits-all answer.

Ingratiating and talkative, Chusynd Karkota is a tall, lanky Chelaxian man (aasimar with the Scion of Humanity racial trait) with turquoise eyes and golden hair. He is also more than likely not quite right in the head, as his near-immediate proclamation to be a CLERIC OF ARODEN! might indicate. Though, by the time he's finished speaking, his wild ideas don't seem nearly as outlandish as when he'd first begun.

Aha! exclaims Chusynd as he cheerily shakes Count Matsanda's hand. Well met, good sir! A pleasure, to be sure. So your new father-in-law — he was a hunter, until he took a tiger to the knee...?

Getting to "Marathon Voter" the first year was down to the wire, I believe I hit it in the last two hours or so of voting. Last year it became a necessity because I couldn't not achieve it again, right? I did get to 1000 votes much earlier due to a change in employment. I will undoubtedly do so again, since I will be unemployed come the first of the year.

Here's how hitting the voting milestones feels -

Star - "Huh, 100? That's not so bad. There's some interesting stuff in here."

Dedicated - "Wow, I've voted a lot and it's not quite half over. 500 times? Maybe I need another hobby."

Votes 700-999 - "OMFG ARE WE THERE YET!?"

Marathon - head desk "Forget that 5,000 thing, LeBlanc is on his own."

This.

So, so much of this.
