Let's see anything I forgot...I consider myself a players DM, I want you to win, The rule of cool is in effect. However I will pull no punches.
I Eat Cannibals
You are awakened by a dousing of water on your now naked body surrounded by fiends laughing and leering at you. They quiet down quickly as a heavy dragging sound approaches.
Coming through the door is a truly horrific sight, a snake bodied fiend topped by a womans torso with 6 arms. She glares at you coldly and unemotional and begins speaking in a language you understand.
The rules here are simple, you will do what we want, when we want and how we want it done" Any questions meat?
Note each of you will be brought in alone, but this scene will be the same
You are hereby sentenced to live the remainder of your miserable life at Prison 14, there you will reside in the misery of your thoughts until such time as you die, may the gods have no mercy on your souls
This was your last memory before you awoke at Prison 14. A no escape work camp with a reputation for housing higher level offenders that run afoul of the law. The warden and guards treat this as a military front-line. People are not executed as a matter of course but are worked to death. You prayed to whatever evil deity/demon you worship to be released and for your sins, your prayers were answered.
Everyday life in this camp includes beatings, torture, snitching and engaging in conjugal activities for the guards for their own amusement.
The guards at this camp are demons of various sorts and the warden whom no one has seen and lived to tell is named Estidian. So this game is basically a mashup of WotW and ToH. You will start off in prison get to know one another and will be

I expect you to post as often as is needed, adjusting to the pace of the group and when you do post, I expect you to push the action/story or leave/pick up RP hooks when you do. I plan on posting 1/day weekdays at a minimum. The weekends you are free
After seeing a plethora of threads involving what I consider rules minutia. I'm looking at you "scry and fry", "ice tomb hex", sno-cone wish machine". It got me thinking, do you need an "official" response or can you make a decision yourself.
But, but what about new players, how will they manage to run a game if one of these ultra-rare situations happens and what will they do if they go to another table and the rules are different.
I don't know play whatever is fun at your particular table and When you go to a table with different rules, make your desicion about whether that game is for you.
Hey I just got through looking through a heated discussion on 3PP hate or like.
Personally I have taken a tour through the 3PP stuff and have not seen anything that thrilled me. Granted it was not an indepth tour, That being said I am open to further explorations on the topic.
So What 3PP Race, Class or setting or anything really do you like?
So,I am looking for a some background flavor.
Our story so far..
Elves, ok we know a bunch of arrogant treehugers right...However, On an island hidden by ancient and powerful elven magic( I am kind of picturing the island from "Lost") there exists a breeding program/ academy designed for the protection on the elven race. These "students" are evaluated and trained in a specific school that that matches their particular strengths.
Even if this runs contrary to perceived Elven beliefs. These "War Wizards" are to be used in times of great need i.e. threats to elven independence/eradication.
So my question is What would you call this academy and/or group of students?
Also this is my prelimanary background story, if you have suggestions to add on that would be appreciated.
So, I am loving the idea of a blaster wizard based on Brewers guide. I will run a savage elf with the magical lineage trait: Fireball, School: admixture.
A little background, I am new to pathfinder although I played d and d from 1980-1998. I had to move due to a job and yadda yadda yadda. I found my way back home only to discover my beloved game has changed significantly.
Ok, change is inevitable right.
The last game I played was with a 2E Maxed out barbarian, So upon my return my friends preroll me a half orc-barbarian just to reintergrate me into the game. It's cool and all but I love spellcasters and have a halfling master summoner prepared.
And before I get all the hatemail I mean prepared I have all my SPA and spells already on 3 X 5 cards. so as not to slow combat down to much.
I recently read "Brewers guide" and am totally digging the idea. So much so that I might ditch the the idea of battle field controller summoner
So the question put before you is this what is the the feat tree you would choose to lay out uber fireballs. With the caveat that I DO NOT WANT TO "DIP and/or multiclass"
Oh yeah, here re my base stats
These were my halfling MS stats before adding in racial bonuses. You can switch the stats however you want.
If you have further questions feel free to ask.
I am not including the ones you get as bonus feats and I will not ever summon my eidolon into combat. After my last few characters being killing machines I want to play a battlefield controller/shaper/buffer you know the guy every fighter type wants around.
1. great fortitude (to even out the saves)
we usually game to about 19-21
So I was thinking, How about a thread that lists your favorite contributors to these threads.
Perhaps, if you have a question you could reference their personal sites and get some good wisdom.
i know I'm asking alot but please no negativity. You don't have to agree with their stance just respect it.
Me personally, I like Blueluck, Adamantine Dragon, DM Arkwright, Thalin, Ciretose, Lamontius, Ravingdork..
I am sorry if I spelled your "name" wrong.
It is a beautiful day here in the bay area and it got me thinking about putting a list together of your favorite contributors to these threads. Believe it or not the trolls are not as prevelant as you might believe. You can list as many as you wish! I figure this belongs in the advice section as you can visit their individual sites and seek out wisdom.
Let me apologize in advance if I spell your "name" wrong. For me I have found these folks advice to be helpful
Blueluck, Adamantium Dragon, Thalin, DM Arkwright, Leisner, Lamontius, Ravingdork. I know I am missing a bunch
A little background, I just started playing pathfinder after taking a 15 year hiatus from RPG's. Well A new campaign is starting up in about 3 or 4 months and after an extensive search through the various classes I will be running a fetchling master summoner. My character will not be summoning his eidolon due to factors in his background story and I find the idea of the eidolon a little cheesy.
So I have 2 questions
1) As I understand it every class gets a feat every other level and a ability increase every 4 levels?(I suppose this belongs in the rules section)
2)I am looking for a good set of feats to compliment my class and race, yes I want to stay hidden and also I do not want to "dip" into other classes.
A long time ago in an edition far far away, I ran my group through a campaign that I not only wrote but had a soundtrack for each session.
Do other folks do this? If so what kind of music do you use to enhance your gaming experience?
For me, I enjoy the conan soundtrack, pink floyd or dead can dance for times when the party is exploring or some minor skirmishes.
However, for big boss battles I find heavy metal does the trick. Any thoughts?
