Merisiel, my friends and I have been enjoying a debate on Elven outlook, and I would welcome your input.
Would you side more with my thoughts or my friends? And if it's more situational than my generalized thoughts, would you please elaborate?
I want one!
For one thing, the commute to work would be so much easier. And amusing, when my ride needs to "poopsie" on the cars below. Hopefully, I can maneuver right over the boss's car...
How do you go from saying that the codifying D&D to 3rd edition was exceptional to ranting about the ambiguity of it all? If you've been doing this for decades, then you should be comfortable with that ambiguity. I've been doing this for decades, and find that the current ruleset is far less ambiguous than in editions past. In fact, I find the over-reliance of codified rules to be as much a hindrance as they are an asset, because at least once a session, someone has to drag out a book to read and clarify an under-utilized rule. I don't mind having that ambiguity, as it means the decision is in my hands, and things can flow as I direct them. As a GM, why wouldn't you want that?
We're working on it, but the nice thing about where we play now is that it's a central location. If he stops being the host, it's likely one or two people will stop coming because going somewhere else may be too far.
My gaming group is about to fall apart because the host is going through a mid-life crisis and divorcing his wife. He's a real good friend, but he's being a bit of a diva, and a lot of it has to do with new online relationships he's forged. I'm sure I'll be able to find/forge a new group, but since I like this one, and I've sunk a lot of time GMing the group over the past few years, I think this is sucky.

Why is it that my Cats will only do something funny when my digital camera is on charge, but when it's fully charged, they just laze around the house demanding belly-rubs and pork-liver treats?
I would withhold the bellyrubs and pork-liver treats until their compliance came in-line.
Take back your life! Down with Feline Oppression!

Probably about a year, give or take a few months. That's my best guess.

Bostons are a real cool breed. My aunt had one.
I like Boxers because they're the right size for me. I'm a real big guy, so a medium to large dog like a Boxer is still a lap dog for me. Plus, they're a puppy forever, and I'm a sucker for that.

I think a book directed at fey in general, to show off their hidden potential, would probably be a good thing. Not necessarily fairies in specific, because that would be far too narrow. But I think fey in general, from all our native folklore from around the world, would be something most GMs and players would appreciate.
And James, be thankful you're not much of a sports fan. After watching the Heat spank my Bulls tonight, I'm telling you be glad you don't share my pain. Ouch.
That's using weapons as ammunition. That's different.

And any GM who would allow you to do so is a fool. Just because dropping a weapon is a "free" action doesn't mean you get to do it an unlimited number of times. That's not RAI. But I get the feeling that you're going for a RAW approach, am I right?
In your opinion, what are the main differences between an Elven outlook on life and the outlooks other races seem to possess? Just as a general observation, of course.
As your fame is growing, do you enjoy being recognized by the public, or do you find it a negative experience?
What's your favorite method of off-hours relaxation?

Could you give some examples, please?
James, what's your thought about the Exotic Weapon Proficiency feat? I find its worthiness as a feat debatable, but I find that more to do with the choices of exotic weaponry to be lacking.
As a sidebar to this question, I was certain that kukris were an exotic weapon early in 3.0, but somewhere around the 3.5 switch, they became martial weapons. What are the determining factors that decide whether a weapon is simple, martial or exotic?

I do know lots of Golarion slang. You can't not grow up on the streets and not know it, but it's different for every region. Was there a particular area or topic you were looking about?
I have to confess I don't have the knowledge of Golaria others here do. I was just hoping you might know a humorous turn of phrase. (Or two. Or more, if you're so inclined.)
Nuh-uh. Some of us hold out for pizza and beer.
Okay, there have been a bunch of great ideas so far, but here's one I think would be interesting... vehicles!
I may be weird, but I think that would be cool.

Wouldn't he be able to tell the difference in weight?
Also, do you know any handy or interesting Golarian slang or street talk that you might share with someone new around here?
