Oh, don't let him fool you on my alleged ignorance. You can barely walk into the closet for the boxes of minis he has! But alas, I think his paints are in storage.

Spoken like a truly wise woman. That wisdom bump you got when you hit the "old" age category is really paying off.

Stealth Check: 1d20 - 6

You can run Kyle, but you can't hide. Fireballs hurt like hell, as you are about to find out. ;-)

This thread is in serious jeopardy of going completely off the rails. If it can't stay on the topic of congratulating Mike on his 5th star, I'm going to have to lock it down.

** spoiler omitted **

Fine, let's get this baby back on track.

  • Is Mike getting his 5th star an evil act and thus outlawed by RAW in PFS?
  • Has Mike earned the right to play?
  • Should Mike allowed to replay for credit?
  • Is Mike too difficult?
  • Can Mike's Int 3 animal companion ride his back while wielding a lance?
  • Can Mike take 10 on Knowledge (husband) checks?
  • Is Mike considered a level 7 pregen?
  • Why can't I get a Paladin Scribed scroll of Mike?
  • Can we re-skin mike to be more like Mark?
  • Why can't we open the Mike Race to everyone instead of only getting it at Cons?

  • ooooooo can I have a level 20 Mike reskinned as a pig, but rebuilt into a Mark and then re-reskinned as a pig?

    The short answer is, he's the HMFIC and he'll do what he wants.

    And he typically rolls his husband knowledge checks instead of taking 10 and does pretty darn good. I'm a happy Mrs. PFS. ;-)

    Please hurry and get these things made so my wife (Mrs. PFS) will stop bothering me....PLEASE!!!!!!!
    Is she still upset about you telling everyone in the Boards how old she is?... ;)
    I think she forgot.......shhhhhhhh

    Ohhh no, I haven't forgotten. But if he can snag the prototype from Erik he might be forgiven...maybe.

    I WANT THAT PLUSHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Besides, it would give me something to snuggle with that reminds me of him while he's gone to a million-and-one-cons this summer. ;-)

    You already got me flowers from Pike Place last week. I think you might be up to jewelry, my dear. :-)

    And he failed to mention that we are the same age until mid June.

    here's a different view on faction missions -

    My wife often complains about understanding her faction missions. To such an extent that (one time in 3 or so) she will throw up her hands and just not bother. If someone else at the table has her faction too, they will often get to the cookie and say... "we need an XX skill here, 'cause we have to get YY." and she'll say "Oh, that's what that ment! sure, I got that skill, I take 10 and get ZZ". And she loves to help with other peoples missions, often having some unique skill (Knowledge Nobility anyone?). If there is no one at the table with her faction, maybe she turns to me and says "what the heck is this? can you explain what they want?". And with the noise and rush of the rest of the briefing she'll just say "never mind". and put it away. Last game she stated that she just "hate's the stupid faction missions - they just get in the way of the story".

    Part of this is the habbit of handing out faction missions during the Judges briefing - so you either listen to the main mission briefing OR read your faction mission. and then players are asking for the Judge to repeat things they missed, cause they were reading the faction mission when he was talking...

    I COMPLETELY agree with your wife. I really HATE faction missions. I have never liked them. I think they are a distraction from the story and under-mind the story/play at large. How can you be a member of the Pathfinder Society and have these sneaky, spy-ish, underhanded missions to do also for some other group? And they don't fit into the story and you spend 30 minutes or more hashing out each mission at the end of the game. And then the keeping it secret stuff? Whatever.

    I do play PFS but I will admit that faction missions are one of the main reasons I prefer APs. Although for the sake of my hubby and his career I will say, long live PFS!!! :-)
