I had this dream last night about USA government supers fighting Vietcong government supers during the Vietnam War. I believe it was using Savage Worlds. I have no idea if I want to do something with it.
This is a great idea. I'm going to write up a short story and then copyright it. Do you have any other ideas?
I gathered this from the Chicago Tribune:New 'Star Wars' lightsabers have some technical problems, experts say
Jesse Kulla is an instructor with the Chicago Swordplay Guild in Ravenswood, a group of fencers who teach "Game of Thrones" nerds like me and my friend Old School how to properly handle swords in theatrical combat. "The biggest problem with it is when you're swinging the sword around is you have the tendency to actually touch that part of the sword (the cross-guard)," Kulla said. "And when you make some of those bigger swinging motions with a metal sword and a cross-guard brushes against you, it really doesn't matter … when you're doing some of those fancy moves, that cross-guard is going to come back against the arm of the person using it."
Maybe Midi-chlorians prevent loss-of-arms?
This is good evidence a cross-guard on a light saber is a poor choice.
Watching the 2013 America Finals it struck me having a cross-guard makes binding easier, and transferring into jiu jistu, rolling on the ground situations more likely. Rolling around with a light saber seems more accident prone than not especially when you have laser cutting cross-guards.

Hey, this makes sense. I think you have done it.

Not sure this sheds new light as the drawing sequence is the same as before. The guy picking last still appears to have the advantage of the situation, even if everyone waits till the end before looking.
Are you saying you can stand there all alone and do this? Or are you saying you do this when an enemy is pressuring you with trying to chop your head off? Because those situations are drastically different.
But what about your forearms if you spin it really fast, like Jedi's do.
Well, we have to remember Lucas captured the Star Wars idea from a Japanese move. I think it was called The Hidden Fortress, or something like that. So, the asian influence on the original movies is strong. But, other influence can be inferred, like The Force can be viewed as Christianity. With this influence, pulling in western cross-guards makes sense. There could be a whole undiscovered sect of Jedi Templar Knights, and they get in fights the asian Jedi Knights. Then the Jedi Jihad Knights get involved, and it becomes a giant battle of light sabre designs.

That's exactly what Quark Blast is trying to do -- get this thread locked.Notice how his last post is a classic Troll Post, in that he agreed with you and then laid some bait.
I'm going to not feed him, and ignore it.
EDIT: I have flagged him.
Yes, I agree a new version is already being designed by Paizo Publishing. They are good at this.
The new Pathfinder 2e rules will also be designed to attract new players. In order for the industry to grow, it has to attract new players.
Let's not look to the past, let us look to the future.
The new Pathfinder 2e rules will also be designed to attract new players. In order for the industry to grow it has to attract new players.
So, this will be *one* of the design goals of Pathfinder 2e.

No. "Unchained" is paizo testing the water with a not-backward-compatible rules system before deciding to publish the new Pathfinder 2e. If it catches on, they'll begin targeting content to that not-backward-compatible rules system. See what they did there?
Thus, it is only a matter of time before Pathfinder 2e is given the green light. Because, as you said, it is a good way to introduce new players to the game -- which is one goal of the new Pathfinder 2e rules.
Coming sooner, rather than later to a retail store near you.

YES YES YES. It is awesome, but it should be better. Please start a second version and publish it ASAP.
Also, can you break the WotC connection? It seems you have enough proprietary material to let Pathfinder RPG run on its own (and finally bury WotC once and for all.)
Edit: Can a purely Paizo IP version of Pathfinder RPG put WotC down for the count? If so, publish it now.
1. Napoleon Invades Russia 1812
2. Hitler Invades Russia 1941
1. The Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan 1979
2. The US Invasion of Afghanistan 2001
(HOWEVER, atleast we got dibs on the Lithium mines. Ha ha Russia.)

Using my Reaper minis, I'm playing out scenarios for this war now.

Let me start off by saying this is one of the Best Threads ever.
Do we have to use them only for animal ancestry?
I've never heard of Cladograms and I'm learning from reading wiki right now. It seems that we can use them to track the way the rules of D&D have evolved too.
( Someone smarter than me must start a new thread and use Cladograms to log the D&D rules' divisions over the last 30 years? )
Your ultracrepidarianism has done you in this time.

That's the exact symbol representing the light radiating from and heat associated with something like a camp fire, or maybe a small bond fire.
Harry's staff uses a sequence of symbols to represent azz-crackling, hyper-energy combat fire. I thought that was obvious.
I was actually thinking of Hasbro's purchase of WotC and the release of <voldemort>.But you are right, this shoe fits on paizo too. Thanks for pointing this out, I would not have realized it. I guess there really is Ying + Yang in the universe.
And, I for one, am glad you are not a millionaire.
My party was TPKed'ed by a night ambush. Damn. Apparently, the snores of our Paladin were not enough to scare away the wild things in the darkness lusting for our blood. I don't understand the whole, "Ok. We take 2 hour watches" thing. That's dumb, because we get ambushed anyways.
How do you build an encampment Security Program that is understandable by both DM and Party, and is... useful? (let's add in 'fun' too)

How many arguments/discussions have you had around the table about America's weakening (failed) middle class, and how many about Jar Jar Binks?
I'm pretty sure the downward spiral of Star Wars and America is linked.
Eh? eh? See. That's how the Shadow Government gets you.
