It's hilarious to watch someone ridicule other people's belief in God while at the same time worship thier lord and savior Bernie Sanders.
Unlike most Republicans apparently, I can back a person for public office without insisting that he's some kind of supernatural being. I can even support Sanders even if he has positions which I do disagree with, (he does). If he had been on the ticket, I'd have voted for him, and I did vote for Clinton despite the fact he wasn't. And despite the fact that I've disagreed with her considerably more than I did with Sanders.

All I know is Bernie Sanders had a HUGE town hall event, with people that voted FOR Trump and still managed to applaud for a guy like him that was saying "Changes in Energy do not mean we toss out coal miners. We need to reinvest in these places to bring EVERYONE back up."
Like I've said before. Sanders draws from much of the same themes that Trump did. Both of them are beating iconclastic drums.
If only that was true. The actual motivation is even worse. If you actually READ the Book of Job, All that was done onto him because Satan suggested that it'd be a good idea to test him that way. For some reason, God needs to prove to Satan that Job can't be broken and he tells the Adversary to do his worst.
So it is not banned just frowned upon. The reason I asked was I was challenged to optimize the most useless pfs legal character. Turning wizard into a commoner woukd make that easy.
We get people opening new threads about 7-8 int wizards about once a month or two on the average. Your idea doesn't even have the virtue of originality.
If you plan on doing this... do it with a PFS table that has your friends on it that will tolerate this bit of whimsy until you get it out of your system. Otherwise it's a great way to antagonise strangers.
@Drahliana Moonrunner: You're correct in that German display pride regarding achievements of their culture; at least now they do (late 90s/early 2000s was a different topic), but when it comes to pride in the country as opposed to the individual achievements etc., things tend to become a bit more strained...though admittedly, that has improved during the Merkel-years and the mostly positive feedback we received during that time.
The time I was referring to was mainly in the 79-84 era. Keep in mind that the period you're thinking of was one of stress and a lot of self-evaluation.

I am interested in learning what Season 6 scenarios that are truly not dependent on a character in the party having the technologist feat in order to succeed at their missions. Are there any recommendations? (Ironically, a few players are interested in Starfinder.)
None of them are, really. Having the feat makes things a bit easier in a couple of scenarios, but I played them with no one in any of the parties having it and we survived.
There was such a big backlash against the tech scenarios that Paizo aborted it's presumed plan to make technology the theme of Season 6.
To this day, I don't understand the reason for that backlash.
My copy of the CRB backs you up.

Some of you folks may know that Trenton is the capital of New Jersey. It is also home to one of the last full time blacksmiths in the country. Fortunately he has an honest to goodness 16 year old apprentice who is looking forward to the day when his name is scratched on the shop's list of owners.

Haven't thought about it. Not likely to think about it unless I have to.
Doctor Fate (also known as Fate) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character has appeared in various incarnations, with Doctor Fate being the name of several different individuals in the DC Universe who are a succession of sorcerers. The original version of the character was created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Howard Sherman, and first appeared in More Fun Comics #55 (May 1940).
Not all of them are sorcerers. The current version is a Lord of Order who manifests as a helmet, and possesses anyone who puts it on. He's also a major class jerk.
I think we can.. disarm... any controversy about it.
When we find out that DNA was a method of carrying a holographic message from the ancient Progenitors, I stopped referring to Star Trek as science fiction in any degree. My reaction to the episode mirrored that of most of the characters involved in it.
If a lack of scientific consistency (except when explicitly modified by magic) breaks the setting for you, then I'm sorry, but the setting is horribly broken. The Starfinder setting will be. Pathfinder's Golarion is. Every published D&D setting I'm aware of is - some in different ways than others. The same with most other fantasy (and even non-fantasy) RPGs I know. And these aren't mistakes or screw-ups, this is by design. This is the intent.
For that matter Star Trek is just as broken when it comes to consistency in the way it drapes science and it's tech. The transporter is an infamous example of this. The way warp drive is applied is almost as bad.

No, because the Democrats are already considered to be liars. They're not ever going to be trusted by the 40 percent who voted for Trump. It's that middle 20 percent who decided that 8 years of Obama didn't lift their prospects enough or at all that gave him the election.
But the real major issue is that the Democrats could not even energise their own base. A significant number of Obama voters voted for Trump. A significant number didn't even bother to show up.
No... it was Trump that was the success, not the GOP itself. Clinton even with all her baggage would have slaughtered any of the other members of the 2016 clown car, including Mike Pence. Which is why despite all of the hopeful dreams, the Republicans aren't going to impeach Trump unless he puts them in a position where they have no other choice.

This totally isn't important for this discussion, but I feel the need to clarify that Earth is not in a "dead magic zone." (At least in Pathfinder.)
No... thanks to Inhotep it's a world of corrupted magic where even casting Cure Light Wounds can open you up to taint. (At least in the Masque of the Red Death setting a.k.a. RPGA's Living Death Network Campaign)
Amazing examples of Hodgkin's Laws of Parallel Development.
I'm also not quite that sure that it works quite the way you describe it as doing so.
And by the way I wasn't talking about how smartphones were made. They can be made in the most humane ways possible, but it doesn't change the consequences of both mining the rare earths that go into them, and the environmental consequences of tech winding up in landfills after disposal.
I can fully blame the Republican Congressfolk for the bills they create. Just as I can blame the Democratic Presidents who sign off on them. The guilt of the first party does not absolve the actions of the second.
Pathfinder adventurers merely need commune ("Is there a place called Earth? Yes? Good! I want to go there.") then interplanetary teleport (possibly with a vision first), maybe with a pearl that keeps you in a shell of air and aim at the moon to get out of its dead magic zone or whatever. Mythic helps, but you can snag that at any ol' hole in the mana wastes.
Pathfinder PC's would have some reason to ask for Earth as it's not even known by name in Golarion. This arguably would also include the Reign of Winter PC's who aren't likely to have heard even the Russian version of the word as the name of the planet isn't likely to come up in the chilly Moscow winter conversation of the Czarist era.
Or on the other hand the tendency of humans or other landbound sentients to name their world after the local version of "Dirt" might be so common that the name "Earth" might correspond to a nigh infinite number of worlds.

I doubt it's that many. The main reason Japanese Katanas had so many layers is because the steel used for them was quite frankly... crap. So the swordsmiths had to result to multiple layers to prevent them from shattering on the first strike.
Damascus Steel however was of considerably better grade.

Those who are baffled by the orbiting nature of Ioun Stones might want to read the Jack Vance story they were lifted from, "Morreion". Vance's Dying Earth setting also gave D&D its prepared magic mechanic and some specific spells, such as Prismatic Spray and Black Tentacles.
Say it by it's proper name.. "The Most Excellent Prismatic Spray". :)
Unfortunately Gygax left behind the best thing about Vance's magic... the incredible spell names.
So instead of rearranging the deck chairs on employment, like the GOP, how does the democratic party approach this problem effectively?
It doesn't. Because the steps it would need to take, would never pass muster with the moneybags that the DNC and individual Democrats are beholden to.
The moneybags in question were and still are, absolutely abhorrent to the idea of a Sanders Presidency, they would much have rather lost to the Republicans than let one come about. The DNC rigging things as much as they could in Clinton's favor was nothing more than following marching orders.
It will however take nothing less than a Sanders to bring this Party about.
There's also the psychological emasculation which goes from being a senior experienced practitioner in one career with all of the perks and status (including a higher salary) that implies to being asked to start all over at the bottom rung of a completely unrelated career.
So when some female liberal Democrat from New York comes and tells you that she's going to kill your industry and offer you retraining as compensation, it's understandable that you'll be a lot less than thrilled about it.
That's not the question at all. The OP is playing a crafter and he wants to charge full book price for the items his partymates want him to craft for them. And he came to the messageboards for justification for such a stance in the mistaken opinion that he needed us for validation or that our discussion would count as such. Where it's really a question of group dynamics, ergo will his group accept such a stance or not. Some folks have brought up WBL issues in an effort to complicate the matter to make it interesting, but it doesn't change the basic question.
As usual, the messageboard community took this as another opportunity to get into a never-ending argument.
