182) When you are teaching high school and accidentally start class by calling out "initiative" instead of "attendance."

184.) When you try and pi down the alignment of your friends, neighbors, teachers...

185.) when you realize that you spend more time making stuff for Pathfinder (characters, dungeons, etc.) for fun and have just wasted six hours...

186.) When you crack open a Pathfinder book when you have nothing better to do and consider it relaxing...

187. You fall asleep discussing the new party you are building with your wife and then wake her up in the middle of the night talking about it in your sleep. She took notes. Says it will make an excellent campaign, though definitely one for the adults only since the male Teifling priest of Calistria and the male elemantal witch seem to be much closer than the kids would find comfortable...

What's going in that head, neh?

We used to do that every year for Halloween. First, at the FLGS, then at the GM's house, then my house, an so on, year after year.

Always some sort of horror story...

(Dawn of the Dead in Depew or whatever).

188.) When one of the contributing factors when choosing your spouse was that they are just as much into Pathfinder as you are

193. You think of Pathfinder as "your favorite version of D&D."


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

194. You are looking forward to a Pathfinder product that is 1000 pages, not realizing that it may be classified as a deadly weapon in some states.

195. You think the acronym IANJ would get a reasonable amount of use to justify its existence.


196. Most flat surfaces in your house are decorated in 1" squares

197. Every store you visit ends up with you being distracted by something you could possibly use in a game session (and often the purchase of said item, but nothing you actually were shopping for).

200. You are racking your brain to come up with new things to post on this thread.


201. When your contemporaries were asking for puppies for christmas, you asked for an Aurumvorax.

I always wanted a pet displacer beast.

Or a dragon.

Ok, now I know what my next character will be. A ranger named Hagrid with some sort of companion animal that makes people look at him funny and back away slowly. Does Pathfinder have half-giants?

Which brings me back on topic, I guess:

202. Every conversation gives you an idea for another new character.

Not sure if it's been said, but I don't remember reading it:

207. When 206 reminds you of a scene from The Gamers: Dorkness Rising.

208. You wonder what the computer's modifiers are when you use Spell Check.

209. You refer to the number of spelling errors in a given document as its Spell Check penalty.

210. Someone asks you to Spell Check your work and your first instinct is to check your latest character sheet to make sure it lists the proper number of spell slots.


211. when you spent 3hrs ting to figure out the math in pathfinder

oh and let me save you some time and sanity
x=lvl
fighter BAB=x*1
cleric BAB =x*75-.5
wizard BAB =x*.5-.5
good save =x*.5+1.5
bad save =x*.33-.33
then round up

12. You sell your entire 3.5 WotC bookshelf (OK, except the monster books) because you realize you don't need it any more.

That's not really you playing too much Pathfinder. That's you wanting to start an edition war ;3

212. When you spent countless days (if not even weeks) working out your various homebrew races and their stories into Golarion canon.


213. You believe twin beds are supposed to be 10 feet long and 5 feet wide.

Edited for clarity.

Tyranids would be *excellent* for PF... especially for a "world other than Golarion" space/time adventure.

211a. You play too much Pathfinder when you spend 3 hours figuring math in Pathfinder and come with overly complex calculations instead of simple ones:

medium BAB: x * 3/4
low BAB: x * 1/2
good save: x/2 +2
bad save: x/3

Drop all fractions.

216. After reading about Markov chains you wonder how can I use this to represent how batles actually happen.

217. When learning about math concepts you wonder how can I make the name of tihs into a character name that won't break someone's versmilitude.

Scarab Sages

218. You're supposed to be getting ready for a date, but instead find yourself trapped looking through various rules threads.

219. When given the option between going on a date and playing Pathfinder you exclaim that you can't decide and ask someone to fetch you a d2.

220. You actually have a d2

I have quite a few d2's, in several denominations - pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters. I may even have dollar coins around here somewhere.

But seriously, I do have a d30? Does that count?

Not really - they're readily available in all the game stores nowadays.

Back when I got my first one I picked it up as a curiosity - it was the first time I'd seen anybody marketing a rhombic triacontahedron. I never managed to find the d12 with rhombic faces, though I'm sure somebody must have made one.

I picked up a d100 at the same time. Nowadays they're pretty common, too.

221: You argue with the developers.


222: You can't help but add something to this list whenever you see there are new posts.


223. Whenever you start a new campaign, the first person the party decides to kill is your NPC mayor because "they are always evil".

224. You would run a Waterworld-ish campaign just because you'd get to use dire sharks and sea serpents for encounters.

225. Your players get worried when you mention that they'll need to take an airship.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

226. When you talk about RPGs, your kids assume you mean Pathfinder & not any other game.


Kyras Ausks wrote:

I just made a spreadsheet and it worked fine. Maybe you used wrong function in spreadsheet to round down to integer values?

Spoiler:
Open Office 3.3:
Medium BAB: INT (level*3/4)
Low BAB: INT (level/2)
Good Save: INT ((level/2)+2)
Bad Save: INT (level/3)

227. When you counter "I'm not in the mood tonight honey" with "Awww, but I succeeded my grapple check"

228. When your bosses consider you a hard worker, willing to work overtime, but never, ever, would think to ask that on your weekly game night.

229. When your community association makes sure that their planned meeting do no conflict with your game night.

230. When cross-country work related travel is scheduled to have you home on game night.

You only play weekly? How can that possibly be too much?
