Yes, not that bad, just crazy. Giving out XP should mean some kind of accomplishment for the PC. In my RoW game our druid is always saying as a joke that we prostituted him because we convinced him to spend some time with a Rusalka in exchange for some information. But they had been flirty since the begginning, he found her attractive and was willing to be with her. We could have negotiated with her for the information anyway, but he was more than willing. He won't let us forget about it.

Me neither. I suspect that's a good thing.

Same here. And agreed.


I don't like Galt. I find it to be the Mary Sue of the Golarion setting.

I find the design of Archetypes, feats, class features to be uneven. Either some are too powerful or not enough. The Geisha archetype to me is a good example.

I think they should do one more or two more bestiaries imo. The last thing they want to do is become like Wotc where by Monster Manual 5 it showed they were running out of ideas.

I dislike unprepared players at the table. They tend to slow the game down. Especially unprepared arcane and divine casters.

While errata is part of rpg too often Paizo goes to far making a ability that was not that powerful nerfed to being useless. While leaving stuff that needs errata untouched

You're better off not knowing.

After 30 something years of playing with mostly the same folks, I've just come to expect that the Psion and the Bard (the two primary "casters" in my group) are going to take forever to decide which spell/power they're going to use and wait till it's their turn to think about it. Fortunately this really isn't an issue after all these years, I just take it in stride. But it's occurred to me that my group could absolutely not play with any other group out there, because they're just so set in how they do things. On the rare occasion when I get to be a player, I DO try to be prepared before my next turn comes up.

As far as errata goes, we ignore it.


How can a place be a mary sue?


It's where Mary Sue's are born, and where they return to die after fulfilling their Mary Sue destiny

um, maybe, like Taco Bell, see, no matter what every time I go there I get what I want, and on the surface I'm happy about that

but then, latter on, when I'm reflecting on the experience, I usually have a few regrets...

And, really, is there any way it could have won the franchise wars if it wasn't a Mary Sue?

My grievance is that all restaurants are Taco Bell. :P

My grievance is that there's no toilet paper in the bathroom. Just these seashell things where the tp should be.


My grievance is that the toilet paper doesn't change itself and Dalindra has got tired of being him who always changes it because I never do it. So it's never in its place. I'm going to change the roll right now.
Thanks Fromper for remember me of my duties xD

Hee hee. Duties.


Galt is a country in a constant of anarchy. Yet somehow manages to function because of fantasy version of the KGB and soul sucking guillotines. Nothing productive is done when the government is getting removed (killed off) every couple of months. Yet somehow they are written as being a functioning state. Hence my calling it a Mary Sue. Did I mention none of the countries bordering it take advantage of the constant state of anarchy.


Actually, you'd be surprised how much France managed to achieve in the 1789-95 period


Still don't understand the reference, but I get the reasons you don't like Galt; guess that's good enough.

My grievance is that this forum has achieved what I was never able to: Kileanna has just changed the toilet paper!


I don't hate it enough never to want to play in it. Or use it as a DM. I would like to see a AP where players bring some kind of stability to Galt.

Toilet Paper Wars.

The Plunger Strikes back.

Return of the Kileanna.

The second one, let us never speak of it again.


OK, back to talking about toilet paper again.


I wonder what is used in Golarion for toilet paper?

I'm sure prestidigitation and create water get a lot of use for the spellcasters, but past that? Corncobs and pinecones used to be popular.

Gross! Leave my people out of your personal hygiene!


My mom was born in 1928 and my dad in 1907 (yes, there was a large age gap between them and I was born late in my dad's life). They've both passed on long ago, but both told me tales of using corncobs in place of toilet paper. I can't attest to how well they worked, but I'd have a great deal of trepidation using something that rough on my.. well, you know.

^ My parents were born late in the late 40s/early 50s (rural South) and have shared similar tales of corncobs and magazine pages.


I find animal companions to be somewhat overrated. I know all the guides on making Druids recommend taking the animal over a domain. One has to pick a animal that can fight, yet also able to take damage. Size for the first few levels is a issue as most places are too small for most animals. They can squeeze into a smaller place yet thst gives a -4 penalty to attack. It's also requires spells, items, armor if one wants it to survive ag higher levels.

With Wildshape as a class feature. As well as being able go spontaneously cast Summon Nature spells. It just seems kind of redundant imo. I always felt it made more sense for a Ranger to take one.

Rural South here, too. My mom was actually born on a houseboat where her family was living at the time.


My grievance is that this has become a thread about pooping accessories.

Yeah, I'm not entirely clear on how that happened, but it seems to be my fault. All I did was followup someone else's movie reference with another reference to the same movie. It just sort of went downhill from there.


It was probably my fault. It's not enough that I work with poop, seemingly I have to talk about it too.

Going to another theme: a houseboat is something really cool!

Unless you live in the Midwest, then it's a money pit, a mosquito magnet and probably riddled with mold and barnacles.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I probably think it's a cool thing because it seems so exotic to me. I've never seen one in person.

And barnacles are tasty.


According to my mom, they moved not long afterward to a place Dyess, Arkansas, the same town Johnny Cash grew up in. She was too young to remember the Cash family, but she used to tell me how her parents would talk about how poor the family was. They would steal chickens from other peoples' flocks and then borrow a pot large enough to cook it in. Everyone felt sorry for them so they never really got mad about it.

Well, you know that old saying about poop rolling down hill...

I didn't know barnacles were edible.

Only the bigger ones. Here they are a delicatessen and can be very expensive. They are very protected because people pick them ilegally to sell them.

I ate them twice, just boiled, with some lemon and they are delicious.

Hmmm...learn something new every day. That looks pretty good.

My grandfather was born in 1908, and he used to say that they joked about "the outhouse is up to the sleighs!" That meant last year's Montgomery Ward catalog, which the family had been using as toilet paper, was about to run out of pages: sleighs were the next-to-last section.

There's also the old adage: Today's newspaper is tomorrow's toilet paper.

My mom used to call it the dreambook. When us kids were trying to show her some toy in a catalog, she would tell us how they used to use catalogs.

My mom grew up during the Great Depression. She was born in 1925. They used the Sears & Roebuck catalog instead of Montgomery Ward.

My grievance: I rushed to finish prepping a Pathfinder Society to GM on Sunday. Despite having a rough week at work last week and collapsing on Saturday, I managed to get everything ready, maps drawn, etc, on time for the noon game on Sunday.

And then only one player showed up for my table. So my player and I ended up playing a different adventure instead of GMing that adventure for her and the people who didn't show up.

On the bright side, at least I got to play. And I talked to the organizer about putting that adventure back on the schedule for some future week instead, so I should still eventually get to run it.


The Soviet Union apparently couldn't produce enough toilet paper to cover the demand. Which is a testament to the power of planned economies, given how much of the surface area was forest, but: When people went to the toilet, apparently newspapers such as Pravda were the replacement.


I have cancelled my WotW campaign. I had 4 players but we were having a hard time to find gaming days, and when one came another didn't. In the end, we had so few sessions that when we managed to do one we spent so many time remembering where we were and telling the missing players from the last session what happened. So it had slowed down a lot.

My WotW group was great but we now have difficulties finding gaming days (a lot of times because of my job) so we're going to replace it for some short stories with some connection between them, which suits my gaming group better at this time.

I'm going to keep GMing WotW for Dalindra on solo anyway, as I don't want to cut the story unfinished. But I'm a bit disappointed on having to cancel.

This happened a few months ago with my Mummy Mask campaign :(


At least I'll be running it as a solo campaign. I hate when the campaigns just fade into nothingness.
