Ahh, the intelligence of youth. These guys are in town to compete in the NCAA Men's Gymnastics tournament, so obviously the best thing to be doing at 12:20am on the first day of the tournament is to be playing cards in the hotel lobby. No need to sleep, of course. It's not like being well rested would be beneficial. Nope, not at all.

*looks at post suspiciously*


Breaking out the fart jokes. classy.

Good morning, everyone. I'll bet that everyone is asking "why is John here this early on a Tuesday?" That's an excellent question. The answer to which is "the morning guard couldn't get his car started, and, since I'm the 'go-to guy', I get called in." BOOGERS!

I love your pure sarcastic energy in this post. *sheds single tear*

Yeah but February has everyone especially grumpy.

All gloom and no doom make people go something, something...

OMG I had hoped I had inspired that alias (with my jack Nicholson reference the other day) but it looks like you have had it for awhile.

In case you missed it the other day the winter blues usually comes from not getting enough sun which your body turns sunlight into Vitamin D. So not enough vitamin D makes you grumpy.

You don't say! I've never heard that before, living in a place with 6-7 months of winter nearly my entire life.

Well glad I could help! You'd be surprised how un-informed some people can be!

Do Paladins go with the flow? No! They find a hill and they die upon it! Willingness to die for a seemingly trivial principle is what separates the Lawful Goods from the Chaotic Goods.

... I'm not even sure on this one.

I do think magic items getting better dice fits more into the D&D genre
But I don't think it actually ever worked like that in any previous D&D game. Once again, this is something that may or may not be a fine rule for some game, but which majorly breaks the D&D feel of PF2e for me.

Maybe not but it has been used in literature. Writers will put in a hero who is losing to a higher level villain until he picks up that magic sword and suddenly the tables are turned.

I don't see at all how it breaks the feel of the game. Its a mechanical system to balance out damage so combat doesn't take forever. as far as thematically its still magic items make you better at combat.

We already have weapon features such as bane, holy, the overcoming of damage resistance, etc. that can "simulate" the situation you describe.

For me, it breaks the feel of the game because I started playing Pathfinder as a way of playing D&D. This is something that no D&D game has ever had. And I really don't understand the benefit of this new approach in light of the design goals that have come from Paizo. To be honest, this feels like change for sake of change which I find to be rather off putting and not at all an example of an "evolution."

Its change for the sake of change and I refuse to look at acknowledge anything that goes against that view point!

Yeah no I don't want a game where the same orc is still a challenge for me at level 1 and level 20.

That’s a straw man. Even in Bound P2, that orc that was a challenge at level 1 is not a challenge at level 20, not even at level 10. So much cakes, ie damage, abilities, HP, feats, etc, that render the single Orc trivial. But in bound it’s bumbers still mean something, maybe it can land a hit on something other than a 29, maybe the Oc needs higher than a 2 to hit. There still exists a massive gulf between low and high level monster in Bound P2, it’s just the difference doesnt need to be artificially inflated. And ironically, when comparing Bound to Unbound lvl 1 vs 20, the. Math is about the same. The Goblin archer is still critting on 20s.

In summary, that orc that challenged you at level one still is I co sequential at level 20, it was just relevant for another level or two, maybe three, before it was obsolete completely.

Nu uh your a straw man!

No its an exaggeration. If it makes you feel better change the number to level 2 and level 10.

This weekend my activity will be scrappier then usual since on Sat we’re going to have a praying session at the temple, then on Sunday we’re going to have a praying session at my aunts place(which I’m pretty much party organizer). So there’s going to be party beehoon that needs to be cooked,Char siu,Shao rou and Shao ji, and fried chicken wings to be collected and laid out on the table for a huge family party. Probably going to delegate the collection of the cooked food to my uncle but still, long story short, there’s quite a bit to be done so I won’t be checking paizo very much.

Oh that won't do you will just have to reschedule.

Apparently they are not aiming to continue any previous story-line. So, no. No Wayans are to be seen. Or heard.

Aww such a shame.

Man who knew D&D doesn't play like real life. I bet in real life people don't even take turns. shameful. Same for gun fights to people hardly ever just keep firing at each other gradually filling each other with holes till one of the runs out of hp. Man that D&D sure is a terrible simulation of real life.

Its true I get tired of arguing over things that I like faster. I don't feel like I got to get up in peoples faces about it. but if it is something I don't like I feel I'm more aggressive about it.
LOL Myself, I'm more bothers by people trying to change my mind when I hate something than when I like something. I think it's because a lot of the time you get the 'well if you just look at it differently, you'd really love it' like I could just flip a switch and change my mind. I'm old enough to be set in my ways and my perspective/POV might move a bit but it's not going to do a 180 because of an internet post. ;)

So your saying your stubborn then? What stubborn you? Nooo....

Gonna have to disagree with you here. I don't think that would be cool or interesting. Also Just because I occasionally botch my walk check is no reason that my character should have too!

At this point I think Paizo could give everyone 20 bucks and people would complain about it. Why isn't it in euros! My 20 was crinkled! I don't like Andrew Jackson!

In other delivery news, NobodysWife wasn't feeling great today, so we decided to do Kirin. Lo and behold, they had Amazon food delivery! And guess who's an Amazon Prime member?

So, UNLIKE every other food delivery company we've fired (TryCaviar = Try to get your order right, Diner Dash = Smash into your car and try to dash, GrubHub = You may never get your food), Amazon was amazing:

  • The order was exactly right
  • From clicking "Submit" to the knock on our door was 30 minutes
  • The driver was polite and alert
  • The food was hot and delicious

  • And what a surprise! They auto-include a tip for the driver. So a well-paid, well-informed driver does a better job than a poorly-paid, poorly-informed driver?

    Who'd have guessed?

    Alright now..

    But... but... how could you dream of criticizing a system wherein the only possible solution to low test scores is additional homework and school hours? Everyone knows that intelligence is nothing more than mind-numbing, repetitive, rote and hard work, right?

    And since the administrators are SO much more important than the teachers, we need to pay them 3-5x as much as well. THAT'LL fix everything!

    Lucky. Catan only lasted about 15 minutes, as no-one knew what the f@!~ was going on, then they decided to play euchre. They still had no clue what was going on. They played (and drank) until 5:00. Then they all said something along the lines of "Well, I guess I'll get about an hour of sleep, then wake up and drive the 5 hours home." Stupid f#+%ers.

    Got to love working with the public....

    Snatch arrows feat:

    When using the Deflect Arrows feat you may choose to catch the weapon instead of just deflecting it.

    Thrown weapons(like tomatoes) can immediately be thrown back as an attack against the original attacker (even though it isn’t your turn) or kept for later use.

    Deflect Arrows:

    Once per round when you would normally be hit with an attack from a ranged weapon(like tomatoes) you may deflect it so that you take no damage from it.

    Nope. Arrows only. If they meant for it to be used for other things, like tomatoes, it should be called "Deflect Missiles".

    (I hope it's obvious that I'm joking.)

    {. . .}

    You're basically arguing with the gods that their rules don't follow a logical, reason based, scientific cause and effect. That's a fight you aren't going to win.

    I'm surprised that nobody mentioned that the highly delocalized and mobile conduction band electrons in metals simply cause Druids to short out and/or experience excessive inductively coupled losses (with the same result of throwing their circuit breakers(*)) when they are mutually exposed along a sufficiently large area, such as that of armor or a shield. Presumably, graphene or carbon nanotube armor and shields would cause the same problem -- it's just that Druids normally never come across these things, so the opportunity to test them against each other hasn't come up yet. In principle, somebody running a Druid in an instance of Iron Gods might get a chance to test this, but in practice, the epoxy binder used in completed advanced technological armor usually interrupts the conductivity sufficiently to make this not a sure test.

    (*)Apparently Gorum has developed fast-reset circuit breakers with advanced ground fault detection for his Druids.

    More test subjects and materials are needed . . . .

    ...... best.... reason....yet.....

    In which fantasy setting? It's absolutely clear it's not true in all of the possible ones, so please provide examples.
    The genre that is D&D and its successors. Aside from that interlude during 4e.
    That seems tautological.

    Is history tautological? Is game genre? The game has been like that since the 1970s when it invented its own genre, before many of us here were even born. In some cases, before the parents of some of us here were born.

    That said, as has been touched upon, things have gotten markedly more convenient for them and they can do more in one day.

    If that's really the case, then people claiming the game reflects how fantasy works are clearly not right - the game reflects a particular vision of D&D, which certainly isn't the one that appears to have been the original intention of EGG, nor reflective of what appears in the original Appendix N. When you combine a massive expansion in the range of what spells can do, and regularly increase the number available to casters, and decide that high-level saving throws make it too hard for the poor things to succeed all the time, then that's how you get casters to be as overpowered as they are. Consider there were complaints back in the 1970s and 1980s that casters were too powerful and they've only gained power since then. It's recognisable as the same genre, in the way that Superman has drifted over the years in the things he can do.

    And yes, I am one of the older players who played OD&D and isn't pleased with how the game has drifted so far from its origins.

    ..Should.. Should I get your cane sir?
