I blame GIMP's GUI completely on Cosmo.

I had never considered this, but it totally makes sense.

COSMO!!!

It'd be hard to find a bigger jackass PC than my Magus; he's haughty, disdainful, and routinely says exactly the wrong thing (particularly when rolling poorly on a Diplomacy check...which is often).

But he also uses his magic freely on other PCs, has a stack of consumables he will hand out (well, that his porter will hand out) at the table, and refuses to leave one of "the little people" (i.e., anyone who isn't him) behind. And on occasion, when someone reacts negatively to my role-play, I scale the dial back because, why ruin their time at the table too?

This is why I always carry my Confirmation kit with me when I play.

yeah, I have a binder with everything I need to run First Steps, Masters of the Fallen Fortress, and (a bit of overkill) Crypt of the Everflame - including chronicles and handouts, all the Iconic PCs and table tents and lots of extras (a one page write-up on "What's a Pathfinder" for example). Always ready to start someone new...

I always have Master of the Fallen Fortress and the Confirmation with me, even when I'm just planning to play. You just never know.

Vojtek's mighty blow, while not quite a critical hit, lands and deals damage...but not as much as the warrior thinks it should!

Ali fires her bow but cannot connect, while Kappi moves around to the other side, unsure of how to flank a thing in the air! Meanwhile, Edward tries to undo what the doll hath wrought on him!

Angrily the doll points again at the barbarian, determined to bring him down!
ranged touch: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20

I think they tried that already, and SKR taught the raptors how to use door handles.

And I'm sure, should SRM (or any developer, for that matter) explain the rationale, you'd stop arguing for the sake of pointing out how much you dislike the rationale. Right?

Saying Amanda rocked is an understatement. :-)

Agree with Seth about Chris Mortika and Kyle Baird as a pinch hitter (on minimal sleep, I might add). When Kyle's your first bat off the bench, it's fair to say that Winter War had a heckuva lineup. :-D

Also a shout-out to my Siege of the Diamond City table of three, who talked their way through nearly the entire city (and learned enough to make them very interested in playing Traitor's Lodge...), showing the true power of Diplomacy.

In other news, a dog bites a man. :D

I await the one among us who admits the other item was better than our own and they down-voted their own creation. ;)

I guarantee you that if I see my item paired against a better item, that I will acknowledge that the other item is better...and vote for my own anyway.

Yup. Me too.

Okay, serious question here - do other parties use this many banners? I have seen no fewer than 3 different types of banners and I cannot think of a single time I have ever seen one in play.
Nope, who uses flags?

The party flag is a gold lion rampant on a field of azure, and should never fly upside down, unless the party is in distress.

Without knowing what errors I made in my submission, is it really so hard to take 5 bloody minutes and read the actual rules? Also, using the template Paizo offered right there? If at least the idea had been good, but this is just a giant mess, sorry.

Yeah, I already saw one very basic mistake I made in my item and kicked myself for it.

Still need "this is better than THAT, but I'd vote for a broom handle before I'd vote for that thing" on the voting page.

(Props to Belladonna Blue for that last year. Helps keep SAN points.)

A man ran into a doctor's office. "Tell the doctor I need to see her right away. I think I'm shrinking!"

The receptionist calmly responded, "Please settle down, sir. You'll just have to be a little patient."
