Did you know there is now a Protean Lord/Demi-god of slang in Pathfinder?? Do you think he and Dispater would have some epic drop the mic type styles?

I just got the book yesterday and have not the chance to read thru it yet....but that sounds very interesting....

I do have a joke though...

Board Gamers are the Flat Earthers of Gaming culture.

Imagine you are in a dark room. How do you get out?

I would get to the floor...

Than crawl till get to a wall...

Than follow the wall till I got all the doors laid out.,,

If there is more than one door...listen...sniff the air from under the door.,,slide my hand from under the door...etc. to ascertain which door leads out...

Sorry for adding multiple doors but was looking at my room while writhing this and I have four doors in my room...

Or you could have just imagined yourself leaving.

Well I felt that would be cheating...

Paul's height is six feet, he's an assistant at a butcher's shop, and wears size 9 shoes. What does he weigh?

225lbs.

Nope.

He weighs Meat as part of his job.

But, as the song says, that is when you need to "laugh and dance and sing."

Some days those don't work...there are days when even hugs don't work...

There days are getting more frequent... :(


My family on my father side are from Gernany...apparently they were wealthy land owners who fled the country due to gambling debts...

Found out that my being trans is becoming known throughout the family. Apparently, my grandfather-in-law asked my aunt-in-law, "Is Foxy......... weird?"

To which my aunt-in-law had to explain that, yes, I'm "weird," but a different type of "weird" than they're used to, and I go by Vixie now.

And of course we've got a big Easter get-together...

No point going butch, I guess!

Hope everything works out okay.

A Magnus Archetype called the Kapenia Dancer from Pathfinder Player Companion: Varisia, Birthplace of Legends.


So...Anymore questions for me?

That question wasn't meant for me, but I felt like I needed to say something.

She's already a girl. Right now, she's on her specific journey to figure out what kind of woman she wants to be and needs to be. Some of that is locked to social and biological baggage and some of that only seems to be locked to it, or is locked to it but the locks can be unlocked (or picked). She's on her own journey, but it's her story in the universal journey that all girls and young women make to womanhood. And as she has already been learning from others who've gone before, I'm sure she'll also learn solutions and bodges that will help others on their journeys.

No transitioning isn't an automagic fix for all of Life's difficulties, obstacles, and challenges, but I'm pretty sure she already knows that. But I would imagine that she'd be able to focus on and resolve those difficulties, obstacles, and challenges when she don't have bodily dissonance screaming in her ears at 130db all the damn time. Like, I never expected my anti-depression and anti-anxiety medications to magically fix everything for me. But they lowered the noise to a level that I was finally able to mostly ignore them, and so I could go on and productively deal with all of the rest of Life's normal crap.

*hugs*

Do you realize that being a girl will not solve your problems?

Mmm...it took me a while to think on how to answer this....

If I was granted a wish right I would wish to be a woman pretty without hesitation.

I am a woman...due to...mistake of birth I have a long road to be recognize as such...and I will go as far as science and money can take me.

Yes I will gain problems of a woman (+ being trans) but I want that. Parts of the struggles women go through defines in part of what a women is. Struggling and overcoming is part of my path to womanhood.

Are you dismayed at my shift to a more moderate "wait & see" attitude toward Pathfinder II?

Not at all...it is the rational approach. It is what I am doing...

I just expecting to be disappointed.

When you expect the worst, you are ready for the worst. And anything better than the worst is a pleasant surprise. I call it Optimistic Pessimism! :)

That is pretty much my philosophy...

Poor Design?

I don't agree with several of their design decisions, but I am not sure that I follow how the game is poorly designed.

Right math and the illusion options and the empowering of those options are all design flaws.

Before we presume that there is only the illusion of options, let us see what has been expanded upon in the final product. (Hopefully they have also backed off on the excessively tight math.)

Is there anything you are hoping to see in the final version of Pathfinder 2?

A good system...but I will take the ancestors being better...


Okay I am now ready for more questions....


Thank you....it is all good

If Mistress Rysky is dishing out the harsh punishments I will resist all day long ;)

But seriously they cant...when in about a year or so PF 2 fails and they fire the designers who gave us 4th ed D&D and PF 2nd ed....they are going to need us.

I need to do a little research so in a little bit I will answer this in full, but off the top of my head as far as Devils go Handmaiden Devil...

As for the the giants besides the classic of Frost and Fire I really like the new Rune Giants...


Those are pretty good...

One of things is I think a lot of the research and studies done on transgendered people have been skewed by the researchers point of view and the transgendered person giving the answers that they think will get them what they want...

For instance I read somewhere that a trans person felt they had to be 'straight' for a therapist to sign off on transitional procedure. As in let's again take myself as a example I am attracted to women even as a transgender women with some minor attraction to guys. Years ago if I was seeing a therapist I would have to say I am attracted to guys to get the treatments and surgery because that is what the therapist would expect.

So studies were way off on the sexual orientation of trans people.

Now we better understand that gender and sexual orientation are not as tied together as once thought but it makes me wonder what other similar things are out there,

Fair enough.

In my head, I had based my definition of trans on the assumption of being uncomfortable with one's born genitals. So, thinking out loud here...

What's the difference between transgender and transvestite? I had set up the difference in my head as 'likes to dress as other gender' and 'wants to physically be other gender.' But if the latter isn't always true, is there any hard qualitative difference? Or is this a spectrum situation?

Thanks for the help; as I mentioned, my understanding is very limited.

For me at least the way I think about it is a transvestite sometimes feels like dressing as the other gender but are comfortable as the gender they are born with.

Transgendered person feel wrong with the gender they are born with...but how far they go with transitioning is a spectrum. Personally I would like to go all the way...but I am limited by living situation and money...

I am sorry if my assessment of transvestites is wrong...I am basing it on things have heard in the past. Which I recognize maybe wrong.

While I love them even I have to say Denons have been a little overused.

Abso-fraggin'-lutely! Demons are WAY overused! Especially succubi; they should be used sparingly, kept off to the side, penned up so they don't have a chance to caramelize...

<.<

...never mind.

*flees thread*

Except for the succubus...there should be at least one in every module, adventure path, rulebook, campaign setting book, novel, player's guide, etc.

You can not ever overuse them.

Hi all, sometimes-lurker of this thread here. :) Random question of the day:

Given a fantasy / scifi race where all members are of one sex or the other, do trans characters make and more or less sense than trans humans?

My understanding of transsexuality is extremely limited, so I'm curious how if at all it would apply to a race with only one set of private bits. Thanks!

As one of our resident trans folks:

If we're looking at a race that's got nothing but buff dudes in loincloths who reproduce by budding and they look at those humans across the way and go, "that race has girls! I want to be a girl," I mean, no reason why they couldn't switch up the pronouns and learn some makeup styling tips.

Now, how things like the Serum of Sex Shift would work on them is another question entirely, but there are plenty of trans folk who are happy with their genitals the way they are.

Interesting, I had thought all trans people were uncomfortable with their given genitals.

Dont mean to jump you here but anytime you thinking 'all' trans people x ( or any group really) it is generally wrong.
