I'll be a Double-Wookiee Yak-Rider, with maybe a pinch of toothpaste-sculpting. Staying well-hyphenated is crucial in a wilderness environment.

If we're to be playing in a sandbox, I hope the devs never add cats or catfolk!

It just doesn't matter.

Oh, I was thinking this was like a box in which I could drop some slander about Golgotha. You know, just to keep it all in one place, tidy-like.

Hmm... yes, I see something terrible right there in the original post!

I like the idea of a blank slate mostly. All the trappings of a character acquired via gameplay as much as possible. I know people see a two-way street of character affect the world as much as the world affects the character. But I think doing is more important than the philosophy of being (the trap is set...)?

He may show up with an alias called 'Doing' now.

I wonder how many meaningful limitations it takes to make a meaningful game and when that starts to look like a meaningful railroad track.

Meaningful choices on railroad tracks? Sounds like the classic trolley problem.

I'm guessing that the Pit Fighter thing and alpha will occur together, with the 'pit' area being a limit for most accounts (until someone discovers a way to glitch through the walls), while alpha players are free to walk outside to stab one another in the face. Minimum viable expectations and all that. Anyway, by making Pit Fighter online rather than offline, they can use it as a stress test on the server and as a way to gather combat data.

Big construction projects don't work out so well when your co-workers are likely to brain you with a shovel if you don't give them your lunch money.

This does remind me of stretch goal: Gnomes.

I dunno about you but I'm expecting Gnomes in EE.

Since the minimal product blog in June I've been surprised that people still have expectations.

So: this idea that you can train at a Settlement not your own?

Makes no sense.

If we allowed that mechanic, then a True Neutral settlement would be created with a really high rep, would open its doors to everyone and charge fees for access to the Settlement, and there would be no mechanical correlation between your reputation and your character abilities.

Assume you train skills at the Settlement you are a member of. Settlements are not universities.

So, this idea of a magical academy that puts politics aside and teaches various types and styles of magic to whomever can afford tuition and manage not to get expelled? Yeah, that makes so little sense that no one has ever come up with such a crazy trope before. When Absalom was approached with the idea of building the Arcanamirium, the city leaders told those old guano-flingers to shove off. Such an University is Unseen within the pages of Terry Pratchett's satire of fantasy tropes, and that series of novels about a wizard's boarding school failed horribly.

It's really starting to sound like the PFO theme song might be "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad". I mean, who would want to build a diverse, complex, and quirky world when we can just get down to the business of making a new Murdersim Online?

That old 'Pit Fighter' announcement has already served it's intended purpose: To entice a few more people to pledge by making them think there could actually be something to try within the same year.

As it stands now, I figure both 'alpha' and 'pit fighter' will happen around the same time, serving as a glorified stress test for a week or a few just before the launch of EE. So-called alpha pledges will get to run around and randomly murder one another, while everyone else literally gets dumped into a pit with some rusty daggers with which to randomly murder one another.

I think putting on pants should take skill, otherwise everyone would be wearing pants.
As the local Murderherd representative, I want to assure you that I will be doing my best to make sure that this doesn't happen. Pants are a blight on this community that will be eradicated.

Are these US pants, UK pants, or both?

If it's both, there's at least one solution.

Sure, vampires and other horrors, let's go to Transylv... er Ustalav.

At least the vampires are mostly honest about what they are, unlike those Razmiran 'priests'. If you're gonna wear a mask all the time, at least make it of organic matter so you can keep hanging with the homelies.

When I was 15, right before I moved to England, I watched a shampoo commercial on TV here in the USA. When I arrived in England, I watched the same commercial with one big difference.

The USA version showed the woman showering from the neck up. The Europe version showed from the waist up. The breast fully exposed. That surprised me greatly at that age. I guess a mild form of culture shock.

That must have set off a spree of truly beastly crimes. How long ago did you get out of prison?

im having a hard time figuring out why gutting ppl with a rusty blade is acceptable and consensual erotism isnt, but if it is to avoid legal problems and bad publicity i can understand from a BUSINESS perspective.

note: ppl will do it regardless;

Not in the US, or haven't lived here long? Casual violence is just entertainment, while naked people are the debbil. Just ask the MPAA.

Leeroy Jenkins?

Leroy Jenkins is a real-world televangelist with a 'laying on of hands' gimmick to his faith healing charlatanry. The Leeroy Jenkins WoW character was named after him because he was a paladin, but for them 'lay on hands' actually works.

As to bannable names, I'm thinking they're more along the lines of Captain Capricious and Admiral Arbitrary.

do you have to use one from the pre-approved paizo library of images?

On this forum, you have to select from the avatar library. You can sort the avatars by the number of people already using them and pick something uncommon so it's less likely to duplicate a regular here. You can even find a cool hat like this one, if Eris feels like it.
