Monte Cook Games just launched there new Kick Starter for a book called Your Best Gamer Ever with tips and tools for not only being a good player but a good Gm so you can have the best possible gaming experience. While Monte Cook has his roots in in writing for D&D 3.5 (mostly the DMG and some settings) which was the precursor for Pathfinder this book is game system agnostic. He not only takes his years of experience in the gaming industry, writing, running and playing games but pulls in experience from other veterans of the industry.

This is a great resource for everyone and it's already funded so you're guaranteed to get the book if you pledge for it. In fact it's already well on it's way to the first stretch goal on only it's first day. It's a book you'll want on your gaming shelf and if you get it through the Kick Starter you'll get lots of extras for your money. Well worth checking it out.

My wife is starting a new fighter and since she is doing two-weapon fighting she has a fairly high Dex score (17 at 1st level). I was thinking of having her take Combat Reflexes to take advantage of the high Dex but does it really come in handy that often? Do you really end up with that many opportunities to get in those extra AoO? Do you get more out of it at low levels than high levels (lots of little monsters at low levels typically)? Do you only take it as a prerequisite for another feat? I think I had it on one character in the past but to be honest don't really remember if it came in that handy. She is the primary front line fighter if that makes a difference.
