Beignets were declared the official state doughnut of Louisiana in 1986.
You could have just said, "States have official doughnuts," and, to my mind, that would be a wondrous enough entry for this thread!
P.S. Here's a list of official foods for my state:
State fruit - Tomato; red grapefruit
State bread - Corn bread
State dish - Chili con carne
State nut - Native pecan
State pastries - Sopaipilla and Strudel
State cookie - Mexican wedding cookie
State pepper - Jalapeño
State native pepper - Chiltepin
State pie - Pecan pie
State snack - Tortilla chips and salsa
State vegetable - Sweet onion
One will note that we have both an "official pepper" AND and an "official native pepper!"
You'd expect them to be RPG nerds, but it turns out they're the most politically informed people in the US, bar none! Hire them immediately!"

In a lot of Paizo AP modules, the village guards ARE double-digit CR outsiders. And for some reason no one thinks it's odd that a devil capable of subjugating entire kingdoms spends decades sitting with 5 of his friends in room C12 cutting up turnips, because sooner or later the adventurers will happen by and it would be disappointing if the fight wasn't suitably epic.
All that being said, in my 30-odd years of playing and GMing experience, there is one definite thing I can say about a GM who makes all his/her rolls in the open: Those tables are far more deadly to the players.
More deadly to the characters, certainly. I roll in the open and have yet to see a player drop dead at the table.
I guess you never have a 'bad day' or a 'bad week', either?
...and then anthropomorphized it to the point where I demanded revenge against a unit of time?
Clarification: There's a difference between (a) noting a statistically large number of unfortunate occurrences within a given interval, vs. (b) actually blaming that interval for those occurrences.
So I am in a pathfinder carrion crown campaign and the DM running it is a super min/maxer. The group has a magus, a samurai, and a slayer.
Assuming you're really serious about the DM, my advice is to fire all members of the group, and instead advertise for a cleric, a wizard, and a witch or bard.

Just kidding. Please continue.
And what a disappointment it was! The Tomb seemed to go from "irrevocably snuffed out, no save" in 1e to "DC 10 Fort or take an insignificant amount of damage" in 3.5.

If you really want to see, go ahead and post a full fighter build and see what druid can do in comparison.
I can guess from experience how that will come out:
1. For everything the druid does, we get "You shouldn't do that!" or "The DM shouldn't allow that!"
This is great advice if you want to make sure that approximately no one I've ever played with will willingly come anywhere near your table.
No one puts ranks in Perception anymore!
This just kicks Xanatos in the jibbly bits. This is a Paladin. Paladins cannot lie. This is a Paladin who just said, "No. This man is a liar."
I'm interested in this Negate Bluff (Su) ability that paladins apparently get. Does it only work within their aura? Or within hearing? On the same plane? Does it have the [language-dependent] descriptor? Does it automatically overcome a glibness spell, or do I need to make an opposed check or something?
I feel like I should be using it more often, but I can't seem to find it in the rules.
