My Dad passed away last night. Fortunately, he was doing fine until last Friday, when everything nose dived. I'm just grateful that he didn't suffer much and was comfortable when he went.

At least he didn't literally drop a ball. Depending on size and weight, those things can do damage...

Today I dealt with the worst part of having pets. I had to have my cat Pepi put to sleep. She was old (at least 17), wasting away, and losing strength so it was necessary, but it still hurts.

Just curious as to your opinion on Pathfinder Remastered. I see it as very similar to moving from 3rd to 3.5, but maybe that's just me. Your thoughts?

Feros,

I must have missed that part of the explanation. I do remember Q and other Q having a kid. But nothing that suggested that meant other Q could die.

It wasn't explicitly. It was suggested by the reason for the conflict and the resolution, but the scripts in Voyager were often lax in detail. (i.e. Why else would them having a kid bring back peace and balance to the Q after one of them dying?)

Sadly, a lot of these sort of ambiguous situations could have been cleared up with a single sentence of dialog. [sarcasm]But why have dialog when you can have space ships shooting at each other or people shooting at each other? That's why people watch science fiction, isn't it?[/sarcasm]

They did have a Q in Voyager. But I don't think the Continuum actually allowed it so much as they ignored Q's role in assisted suicide.

Actually, they didn't ignore it. They ended up in a civil war over it, finally settling on a "as long as you reproduce, you can die" policy. The whole idea was a revolution for the Q.

Sadly, this wasn't spelled out very well in the relevant Q episodes of Voyager and 2nd season of Picard addressed that—in a round about way. I enjoyed 2nd season, but there were some serious plot issues. I respect the opinion of those who didn't like it.

As for the last episode, this series is shaping up well. two strong episodes in a row.

Character reveals:
As many suspected, Crusher's son is Picard's as well. I wonder if they will let him live and thus continue the line or take the easy/so-called-realistic approach and kill him by series end. It will be interesting.

Oh, and Worf's introduction to the series may be the strongest character intro I've seen in a long time! :D

And different styles is what the OGL supported so well. We need different systems and different creators to maximize the players abilities to find their game.

At least for me its not the language that's the issue, it's all organizational. Feats and spells being arranged alphabetically rather than by level, needing to flip between the various appendices to parse out conditions or focus spells, stuff along those lines. All a massive hassle if you're using a book or pdf and makes learning the system horrifically tedious.

Though both feats and spells were organized alphabetically in PF1 too (and in 3.x, iirc).

There's definitely something about the organization, but I'm not sure exactly what. The group I introduced to it had a lot of initial trouble navigating the process.

Indeed. Layout was poor.

The key to the trouble seems to be cross-referencing. Whenever 2e puts out a rules mechanic, they often have several specialized rules that use that mechanic. So when you read a rule, feat, or spell, they often reference something else in the book. This saves space and allows you to print more options, but it also means you have a spell or activity that is spread out over different places in the book.

It gets really bad when you start getting to tertiary rules, so the rule in front of you references another rule in a different book, that references yet another rule in the CRB.

From a game design standpoint, it's brilliant and flexible, resulting in a wonderfully modular system. From a gameplay perspective, it is a headache flipping to one page, to get an explanation that requires you to flip to another page or book, and on and on...

Whenever 3rd edition comes out, this is a problem that will need to be addressed.

Yay to Paizo for taking this stand and helping to save the little guys. As many of the lawyers have pointed out, if the revoking was taken to court, WotC would almost certainly lose. But that means facing the legal machine of a megacorp. Almost none of the small players have the resources to fight a protracted legal battle, meaning Hasbro would win by default.

Paizo has given those small publishers a way out and are willing and able to defend themselves. That is worth celebrating.

HUZZAH!

I'll be shocked when I see numbers, and my TTRPG experience is about as far from a "bubble" as you can find. I've been in this community back when it was mainly grognards and I was the one kid on the forums, but I've also been deeply immersed in the new gaming scene that's developed of late. If I see numbers, I'll eat my words.

What you describe is not how anyone I know has gotten in in the last ten years. The closest I've seen is players who got into it and tried GMing for the first time from podcasts, but that's not the kind of cold-read GMing you're talking about.

You young whippersnapper, you!

I'd been hoping to exit FaWtL in the time-honored tradition of simply disappearing, but several texts over the weekend indicate that I've caused consternation, and for that I apologize.

I've chosen to leave the Paizo boards, and I prefer to keep my reasons my own, though I will emphasize that *NO*, LM, it WAS NOT YOU!

Nothing significant has happened in my life to change things:
- I'm still toiling away in the slide mines at Global Megacorporation
- Impus Major nailed his math final and brought his grade up from a C to a B
- GothBard is still seeking employment

I greatly appreciate the concern, but it's a choice that's been several months in the making, and since leaving Paizo I've enjoyed the extra 90 minutes a day I've gained.

Carry on, FaWtL! You're a great crowd.

We'll really miss you, NH! Revel in that free time!

Hey, they're not all bad. For example, they used to make decent sewing machines. And the chains on their saws will stay on for at least thirty seconds before falling off or breaking.

Asterix. He only eats like Obelix in the evening. With an additional wild boar right before bed so he doesn't get hungry during the night.

Considering you live in Texas, I'm not sure how much of that is exaggeration...

I watched a mother osprey teach her young fledglings how to fish in a pond out behind where I work some years ago. It was absolutely amazing! The following year they all came back to the same pond and greeted each other while flying not twenty feet over our heads, calling out in excited squeaks and calls.

Those birds are incredible.

BLERGH

*crawls back into thread*

*sees 1036 new massages*

SIGH

*reads for two hours*

To sum up: Captain Yesterday did some amazing hardscape work, people watched shows that were either blasé or outright bad, family drama (with degrees of great, good, funny, bad, and OMG I'm so sorry you had to deal with that! (especially you with Eve, lisamarlene)), and Drejk made some cool monsters (some in response to the thread!)

I am now caught up.

As for what has been happening to me, I've been silly busy as a company that used to have up to 25 people working at it is pared down to 5 full time staff (one of which has decided to phone it in and not be a team player at all). The number of departments I divide my time with is truly nuts.

ASIDE: Also nuts? That a company with 5 full time staff has 7 different department entries on our time slips.

As for my Dad's cancer diagnosis that I posted about months ago: Since I last posted, all the news has been good. His form of bone cancer is basically osteoporosis on steroids. He was suffering from calcium poisoning as his bones rapidly began to resemble swiss cheese. They've lowered his calcium levels to normal and the treatment regimen they've put him on has a 90% survival rate over five years. So to say we're optimistic is an understatement.

Hopefully I can keep up with everything now that things are beginning to slow down here.
