Some of them were pretty obvious....like x Queen is in love with her princess consort...

They d3stroyed, ignored, time jumped away from like 99% of relvenlent female chsracters....and pretty much replaced them with nothing.

Surprising, given how much you hated WotC for their revision to the Forgotten Realms.

I am full of surprises.

I boycotted for a entire edition (through 4th ed was really easy to skip) and still refuse to buy anything for it. But unfortunately friends still play it and I want to play with them....it is not that bad.

I really dont get though why they are still supporting pretty much Chick Fil A of gaming companies...(okay WotC is not that bad...but they did a heavy dose of 'remove the gays' from their settings)

Here's hoping I don't mess stuff up.

Probably too late but messing up is normal it is how you recover that is important.

Though I befriended the local raccoon.

Howdy,

How is Emperor Floyd & Princess/Prince Kitten doing these days?

Health wise Floyd seems to be over whatever that was. But sadly I think are is starting to catch up. :( He is going back to the vets in a couple of weeks.

Princess Kitten(My niece named her a name I dislike due negative conocations of somebody I worked with So I call her Luna in my head) is doing fine.

She loves Floyd...And Floyd seems to like her but she is continuing jumping him and playing with him. He does not seem to mind...but he is older now so he has a shorter tolerance for it.

Today he even started to groom her...till she 'attacks!

If you had to live in an RPG setting (of your choice), what world would it be?

Just to clarify, I don't mean your character. I mean you.

StarFinder....as it is sci-fantasy I get both super cool tech and magic.

Plus very affordable means to be myself.

Next Question:

If you were a Starfinder adventurer, what class would you be?
What theme?

(Again, not a character, you.)

I would be a Operative...theme...Celebrity.

Won't you take a ride, ride, ride

It's the only way that you can travel
Down that road

(heavy metal was a trip when I was a teenager I should watch it again for nostalgia's sake.)

I liked...but than again I love anthologies.

Have you seen it?

Okay the next movie I am going to rent is horror movie (Bit) that stars the trans actress from Supergirl. After that is Heavy metal...

I will try very hard to get it done this weekend.

... but, if you are going through Hell right now, don't over do. :)

My philosophy is sometimes I have to push thru it to get better. Sometimes it is better to over do it.

Do you like pie? I finally tried Lemon Meringue the other day. It’s very yummy.

I have a thing...I dont like cooked fruit or vegetables(well with a few exceptions in regards to vegetables)...I usually like them raw.

So most pies dont appeal to me.


So...anymore questions for me?

Also if I can get enough people here interested in playing here I might be able to get interest enough in PF2E I might be able to get them to realize letting me run PF2E (and PF1E) games can make them money...

So anymore questions for me?

How are people doing?

Anybody interested playing Legends of the Five Rings with me?

Over at my friend's V-Space thingee on discord I am one of of the GMs for the L5R shared universe campaign (also a player)...there is also a Shared Universe Star Wars going on along with some other games. Every night there is something going on.

Membership does cost money (though the fist month is free and if you become a GM you can get it for free along with a chance to get tips).

Anyway I would love a chance to play with people from here...and L5R is a very fun game. Drop a PM if you are interested or ask any questions here.

RPG Advice ...

The next time you're character takes damage, say this: "I'm hurt so bad that Taylor Swift wrote a song about me."

That is a great line...Will have to work it in somewhere...

I am still waiting to use the line from Dog Soldiers...

'I hope I give you the sh!ts!'

But I have not had a PC about to get eaten in a very long time :(

Everyone, a moment of your time.

One of my oldest friends and gaming companions has just come out to me as transgender. I have known this person for over 20 years, and this is...well, I am shocked. Beyond shocked. I never knew this of them in any way.

I'm happy they were in a place where they could come out to the gaming group. Actually, I am beyond happy that they would be able to do so. But the shock is still there.

I hope the shock doesnt make me a bad person. But this news is less than 2 minutes old, and this was the first place I came to, the only place I could think of.

Wow.

I mean.

Wow.

I never even thought or suspected...

While I can't relate to you...I did the same thing with my long term gaming group.

I think the shock is normal and it is okay for there to be a period of adjustment. My only suggestion is just be there for them.

Hoping for the best for Floyd!!!

And if that's the case, your friend should not be looking for money at all! Why is he interested in turning a profit?

Floyd seems to be fully recovered.

As for my friend...I think he can be very selfish and his ego. He doesn't want me do a better job of organizing a gaming community than he can...so he undercut my efforts in this area.

I can am probably to accepting of other flaws

Update on Floyd: After that night in which he threw up lots of blood...we took him to the vet who only found a 'maybe Thyroid problem. They gave something to help Seattle his stomach. In next couple days he bounced back with his appetite returning so pretty much now back to normal. I am still concerned as cats are master at hiding health problems but I am not crying with worry anymore. It was very hard taking him to the vet.

My friend's place is not a gaming store as much as a location where people can play in a organized shared universe...a friend of his let's him use a place rent free...all he has to pay is utilities. Though now it has gone online.

What I need is more details on how others have set up similar LGBTQ+ Game nights and such.

Whimsy Mystery?

Whimsy could work...

But I was thinking of...Primal magic and the Primalist from the Inner Sea Magic book.


I couldn't find one that I felt fit well...there is a PrC or Alternate class that allowed someone to shape chaotic magic...but could not remember it...

After Wonder Woman and Zatanna, I don't know if I need a Taarna build.

Do you know if there is a Wild Magic (Scarlet Witch) sorcerer bloodline?

I think so... I will look it up.


Sure

Floyd Update: The vet could only find a maybe thyroid problem. Floyd seems healthier and his appetite has returned. I am still concerned but not crying with worry mode.


Floyd Update: He threw up more blood last night. Went to the vets this morning and we are waiting on some tests. He is currently sleeping in my room.


I hope everybody is doing good in these times of troubles. Hugs all around.

I have two thing in my life that is causing me concerns...which might seem small in comparison but they are hitting me on a personal level.

The first is my cat, Floyd, vomited blood today. We are taking him to a vet asap...but he is fifteen years old and it is probably not good. He has been a main support in my life as only a pet can be...I mean I am hoping it is nothing.

The second thing is I approached my friend who runs that gaming club thing about hosting a LGBTQ+ game night for when the physical place. His response kinda sickened me as it was about making enough money...here I could use the support from people with information on how similar events are run so I can start answering some of his concerns.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

So I have some possible bad news( well if you are a pet lover)

My cat, Floyd, just threw up a little blood. We are going to take him to the vet asap...but he is 15 years old so probably not good:(

He has had a good run and I will miss him as he has been a rock in my life the way only a pet can be.

And I guess there is hope that he is okay...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That is okay I have been busy with stuff...

Also I am a essential...which has the opposite effect on me as it is giving me a reason to carry on.

(@Max: I don't mean that be judgement on you or your feelings...it just how I feel)

Related question, would you play this character?

Yes...I might make minor changes based on preference...nothing jumps out, but I have habit of making a slight change to pre gens to make them mmine.

As a GM I probably would allow you to combine all the performs in to Stage Magician...but that would be up to the GM.

Actually, you'd want to keep dance separate. It's a Varisian thing. But, for the most part, I stuck with the list from page 103 of the Core Rulebook.

Have you watched Heavy Metal yet?

Got it...

Soon...

Playing or GMing?

Let me explain...

My friend's gamer club thing has gone online...it is on Discord and is called V-Space( come check it out)

So for him I am organizing running PF2E mostly currently organizing...

I am also helping to organize the L5R campaign there.

Home Games...

Every other Wed I am either running PF2E or playing in a newly started L5R campaign...

Every Friday I Just joined a D&D 5th ed game being run by my best friend...

Sat I run a PF1E home game in the Day + that night I play in a D&D 3.5 game or a WoD game being run over at V-space

Sunday I run and play games from noon to midnight over at V-Space...


Anymore questions for me

It is amazing how busy I have been...with gaming. Stats and Sunday I have like two games a day....


I was being nice to male writers and artist... ;)

I remember those dimly...but I get the point you are making.

I may revise my opinion on rewatching the movie...


Lord Fyre wrote:
Selene Spires wrote:
I said I will so I will...my word means stuff...

I have a couple of "non-Taarna" questions about the film (and the Magazine it was based upon).

But first, a couple of facts:
* - The film was made in 1981, so incivility was not yet the norm.
* - The film/magazine's target audience was "adolescent males."

Now my two non-Taarna questions:
* - Would the film (and/or magazine) have benefited from the inclusion of writers/artists/etc. who were women and/or PoC? How, if any way, would this have changed the final product?
* - (The film & magazine does have female fans, however ...) Do you think it would have been possible for the magazine to have broadened its fanbase without losing it's core?

Yes, I am working on Zatanna for Pathfinder. :)

I never read the magazine but I remember the movie well enough to maybe answer the question...

1) Yes having women writers and LGBTQ+ writers, and PoC writers would have benefited it as it would be more diverse pod. And I think women can write heavy metal style sexiness.

2) Unfortunately even if they did it without politics I think they would loose some of their audience.

I am on vacation for two weeks...worst timing ever.

Did you realize that Ring of Feather Falling had to have been invented by a gnome?

It is an automatically renewing Feather Fall, cast at level 1. So, during a long fall, the user would ...
1 - fall five feat, then the ring would kick in.
2 - fall safely for the next six seconds.
3 - experience a moment of terror as they resume falling.
4 - again fall safely for the next six seconds as the ring reactivates.
5 - steps 3 and 4 can be repeated as often as needed.

No one but a thrill seeking gnome would have built in that interval.

Mmm....I think you are right.

Zatanna...my favorite DC character.

Zatanna Zatara is a difficult character to model.

* - She is a member of the "Homo Magi" race, that sounds like a Sorceress.
* - ... but she also can use learned magic, like a Wizard.
* - She became a successful stage magician before discovering her magic potential. So that would be a Bard.
But, as we know multi-classing casters is never a good idea in Pathfinder 1E.

Scarlet Witch (from the comics)

While I know you aren't playing 5E, Tulok the Barbarian has a Scarlet Witch build.

Hey did not say you wanted easy...though I would leave the bard stuff to rank's in Performance.
