Vaya con Dios.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

In the final episode of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer',
when Anya was killed doing her job, I fell on the floor
sobbing with tears running down my face.

That's the saddest.

Followed by the kick to the gut when Xander, who just lost his eye,
walked right by her body, because he didn't see her.


Same problem here.

This book is the scariest book I have ever read.

The incident with the 13 boys trapped in the cave in Thailand

made me think of this book again.
This book is so scary I could not finish reading it.

Warning: Do. Not. Read. This. Book.


The noonday sun blazed down from the fiery dome of the sky.

At the Pole of Inaccessibility, dread cthulhu has harvested,
and then built, a burger king. It is not a very nice place to
work. The human help doesn't live long. And, in fact, stories
tell the missing help end up in the burgers. But always,
there are the onion rings.

It's mostly the onion rings cthulhu finds magical. Learned burger king
magicians -- wizen, sclerosus pocked men now physically atrophied due to
years-long study of moldy, accursed texts -- have conceived ways to make
a good tasting, commercially viable onion ring.

Boy oh boy, Big C is a fan!

.

Here is how you make the onion rings:

The process is unholy. One must forsake their place in existence to
have their name added, as an after thought no less, to the list of
mortal wretches wishing to make a bargain with evil for a dollop of
power.

If, with a chance equal to lightning striking a lady bug from the handle
bars of your Mom's favorite bicycle when she was 12 years old, one of
the wretches is granted some power. Then, it is he who must cook the
rings for cthulhu.

First, he must produce the onion ring's cooking oil. The method used is
unclean. The insane magician squeezes the oil out from the intestines
of seven rabid dogs.

A lead bowl must be used as the physical conduit between heat and oil.
Putting his oil in a lead bowl, the mad wizard will bring it to a boil
by heating it on a coal burning stove.

The onions must be freshly dug from the Earth. And cut sharply with a
clean, silver sacrificial dagger (of course) and gently slid into the
boiling oil. The motion of ingress for the onions into the pot must be
executed with his left hand only.

Stir until done. Then, pluck the rings out to dry on a velvet towel.

Now, that's a fine onion ring.

I love Paizo and had a lot of fun with Pathfinder... but D&D's audience is an order of magnitude larger.

I've commented before D&D isn't just the #1 RPG. It's the #1 and #2 and #3 RPGs all in one game system.
Your not wrong, its been D&D way ahead of everyone else ... well since before AD&D. But briefly oh so briefly 4E dropped the ball and PF passed them by until 5E came out to once again take over the lead. So if people dream PF2 might once again challenge the big dog well it happened once, why not again?

It will be interesting to watch what effect BURPS, and the creation of p2e SpaceMaster, will have on Starfinder sales.

Why would I ever use a class-based, magic-heavy d20 system as any kind of universal system?

Especially when there's tons of actual universal systems I could use instead with way less hassle.

Two quick reasons, so:

1. I can win my bet.
2. Paizo get's all the market share.

119. How many languages will p2e have available?


Also, like you said, I think you'll find the p2e game categories of Exploration, Melee, and Down-Time in no way submit to 1-time powers.


117. If my PC is being stealthy and in Exploration Mode, then stops to spark up a cigarette will this automatically put her into Combat if an "encounter starts"?


116. How many Actions will a p2e Tentacle have (as in, the evil tentacle grabs your ankle)?


115. In p2e will there be 'Bonus Actions' ?


114. Can I drink a potion of Quickness in p2e and gain additional Actions or Reactions per turn?

I just watched Mr. Bulmahn run the p2e "test game" on twitch.tv. And E. Mona popped in at the end. Good stuff.

I'm placing my bet now, I think Pathfinder 2e will become the dominant Universal Game System of the future. It's mechanics can be usable in any genre or time period. e.g. Fantasy, sci-fi, cyberpunk, modern, cthulhu, etc.

Buhlman is just that good.

I foresee Paizo employing a staff of a 1000 people to keep up with demand.

Can you please chime in if you know about any 'Elric of Melnibone' games, RPGs, and adventures?

I just saw this --> Who Seeks the Black Blade of the Demon King

... and now I want to fill out my collection.

A bad website interface?


Two slots out of the top 5. Paizo dominates the industry.

I'm watching >part of it< now.


I have an idea for a new adventure to fix the website:
Paizo has been invaded by evil hackers who have corrupted the website interface. This is slowing down the flow of spice & messages (and happiness) to the entire Kingdom. Also, the sun is now the wrong color. “We” (and our favorite heros) have to travel across the country to:

1. Infiltrate the Castle of Paizo which is now under lock-down by a malevolent force.

2. Bypass all the traps and tricks set by the encroached invaders. This includes the new "Labyrinthian Security System ™” (a maze).

3. Rescue any Paizo employees held captive after the initial invasion and being held hostage.

4. Fight and destroy the evil hacker’s henchman, and “gated in” otherworldly guardians. And Wondering Monsters! (I love random tables).

5. Collect the keys, and unlock the door to the Control Room. Therein, defeat the unspeakable horror which has taken up residence and is corrupting the code base.

6. And, finally FIX THE WEBSITE. (As a sub-goal: the players will need to travel into a dark cave to rescue PMG, because only he can use his technomancer-magic to ‘save the girl’.)

Epilogue: The girl, being newly rescued, uses her happiness to restore the sun to it's proper color.

Hurray for Paizo! Hurray for the restored, unrestricted flow of spice & messages to the Kingdom!

we'll flesh out each section, below:

... Well, old friends, we stand upon the edge of war once again. ... Out of respect, we will share our tales ...

Hail brothers!

I literally fought in the Edition Wars. It was violent and glorious.

I remember the first salvo of The Edition War, in 2007 -- it was started by "Wizards of the Coast" cancelling the magazines: ‘Dragon Magazine’ and ‘Dungeon Magazine’. And for this treason my hate for them still burns to this day.

I still boycott all WotC products and services, and have for 11 years now.

Then, with a one-two-punch WotC committed blasphemy and produced "4evil". This version fractured backward compatibility, and demanded we buy all new books again.
This caused fire to spread, and forced common men to stand and fight for their family’s lives.

Shortly after the outbreak, Paizo, quick like a kitty cat, stepped in and offered us Pathfinder 1e. It was a very sweet cherry pie. Then did the wotc fools know the error of their ways.

MBA Kung Fu mudda-fudgers... Lisa can dance! chop, chop goes the market share. chop, chop. ah hahahahahahahaaaaa.

I still play the "original". Well, I just started a few years ago and bought the .pdf from SJGames.

We've scaled it all up by a factor of 3x's so we can play with matchbox cars. I cut magic cards and glue them to the bottom of the matchbox car for uniformity. It plays very well.


Gary if you were paid $10,000,000 to write a control system for a team of unmanned aerial drones, how would you do it?

All things must end...and this time, it is my chatroom. It's long served its purpose, but I don't have the time to properly monitor, moderate, or maintain it to the extent that I'd like. When I started the chatroom (over 10 years ago), there wasn't any place quite like it on the Internet that was easily accessible. I do take some measure in pride in that, but new places to chat about gaming are available everywhere now.

I've set up a redirect to places where you can find me, but it will take some time for the server to kick in the changes.

Thank you to everybody that spent time in my chat room, and thanks for all the fish. <3

My most sincere gratitude Lilith, and to Daigle of course. Because I think he first suggested it.

I showed up the first week you launched and, as you know, never left. Great, great memories. Huh... some of the best.

Goodbye everyone -- maybe I love you and maybe I don't.

Edit: I remember running the first game the chat room saw. It was me, Heathansson, and The Jade. Excellent stuff.


(18,206 new) ah hahahah...

in an unholy alliance between unholy players, the unholy board game being played was set aside. a new moment was upon them and this moment was unholy. seven unholy servants stoop up, lumbering forwards. creakily they stumbled up an unholy flight of stairs.

step by step.

step by step.

near the top, the unholiness of the situation descended upon them. this game is unholy the unholy players hailed in a wailing cacophony.

oh, when will it end they lamented.

this is unholy, they cried.

why did we choose to do this?

why, oh why.

why.

why.

double you.

I see it now.

Hello the end. my unholy friend.
