The Gokusen is amazing. Drawing style maybe not so much, but once you get past that, it's great :D I've probably seen the anime twice, and then the two first drama seasons once on top of that ^^
I did say romance about Ouran High School Host club, but it's mostly comedy. For the most part if you take Ouran seriously, you're doing something wrong. Especially early on.
Time for a bad suggestion:
How about Silver Fang aka. Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin? That's the first anime I ever saw, and six or seven-year-old Thymus Vulgaris was totally into it. Now, it's not a bad suggestion because I liked it as a kid. Gods no, that show is not appropriate for children. It just moves at a snail's pace unless you have the (heavily) censored version that we had on VHS here in Scandinavia. It does have action, and it gets very bloody for a show about talking dogs. Even the censored version is very bloody, and the uncut version has 200 minutes worth of content that was too brutal.
Okay, no, that was indeed a bad suggestion for someone who needs action all the time. (I think, I haven't watched it in ages). The rest of my own personal anime shelf is either pokémon or Ghibli, so how about... I like Fairy Tail, but it might have too much fanservice. Maybe Dragon Ball (not DBZ!), for a combination of action and gag/comedy, although it admittedly does have some boobs. But again, they're more there for comedy than to be titillating.
You can't go wrong with Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood or Trigun. Top notch series, both low on fanservice.
But wait, here I'm just suggesting Shounen series. What does your girlfriend like? Action? Comedy? Romance?

I honestly don't mind MLP. I don't love it, but I also don't mind it. I do mind Pinkie Pie. A lot. She's super annoying, and I don't see how anyone can stand her.
Good, good. *takes off grammar nazi hat* Sorry, for a second there I interpreted your words in the worst possible way.
Words, and even more so names, mean what they're used to mean, not what their roots mean.
Are you one of those people who use "literally" as a random word for emphasis with no regard to its actual meaning, so we end up with people who literally cry their eyes out, yet somehow still have eyes?
Hmm, that might free up some opportunities for me. I have no problem sharing the debuffing role, and if you have Cackle to extend the duration I can prepare Ill Omen to make enemies more likely to fail their saves against your Misfortune :)
Lullaby is a good teamwork idea if the witch grabs slumber, I suppose.
I wasn't planning on it. After some deliberation with input from the forum, and later real experience, I decided a while back that shutting down enemies with Misfortune is much more fun than just putting them to sleep.I could take slumber if the party really wants me to. I can still do pretty much the same as Misfortune with Pugwampi's Grace, but spells aren't as spammable throughout the day as hexes, the save will be lower in the long run, and it isn't subject to cackle (but the duration is going to be a boon in the long run).
What happens if the same target is hit with Misfortune and Pugwampi's Grace?
EDIT: Also, I'm trying to decide whether to buy a Cackling Hag's Blouse since I don't have cackle yet, or a Headband of vast intelligence. Buying both means that I only have 500 gp for everything else. Thoughts? (My hexes are currently Cauldron, Evil Eye and Prehensile Hair, and then I'd either pick up Misfortune with my 5th level feat or at level 6)
I didn't mean for it to be all evil, I just suspect I might lose my grip on the neutral alignment I was going to go for, if evil is allowed.
I have plans to make a future character for another campaign transition into CE to challenge myself and see if I can do it properly, but I'm honestly not sure if I have the experience to jump straight into CE and do it right.
It would be strangely fun to have a somewhat healer-type character (I've gone for healing patron) with evil alignment.
I've finally gotten around to actually opening a character sheet to fill in before I start fiddling around with profile formatting for an alias, rather than just thinking about it. I've distributed ability scores, allocated around half my skill ranks, and I'm mostly through spell selection. I need traits, feats and gear still, but I can have that done in a few days at most.
And now I'm realising how funny it is that I'm finally getting the creation this witch properly started on the day that I'll be attending the yearly witch burning.
EDIT: Oh, and do we have a limit for how much of our starting money we can spend on a single item?
Americans don't even know what left wing means. If political ideology was a bird and Americans pointed to their "left wing whackos", people over here would say "what are you talking about? That isn't the left wing you're pointing at, it's the right shoulder."
A goblin flees the scene of battle, having been just shot at by the gunslinger.
The under-appreciated one: *breaks out into song* He will survi~ive! As long as he knows how to love he knows that he will stay alive!
Other player: *groans* [gunslinger player], quick, you know what to do!

I know I'm horrible for correcting you, but that slap was really very well deserved.
I am not strictly opposed to PvP, but I game with people that I trust to be mature enough not to be jerks about it. I'm by no means a veteran, but in my three years I've had two cases of PvP or near PvP:
We came close once in Way of the Wicked, with the group split in two and legitimate worries on both sides that it would come down to combat. Our characters managed to talk it out, though. (The incident was partially initiated by a command spell cast by a PC on another PC, so I guess that in itself might count as PvP?)
And then, the one time we actually had full on PvP, was just a few weeks ago, maybe a month. One PC was told by a devil to kill one of the other party members, and she chose to turn on the party rather than the devil. She was a follower of Zon Kuthon, whom the devil was (claiming to be?) acting as a servant of, and she wanted to prove her faith. So combat happened, and she managed to convert another PC to her side mid-battle, by offering sexy times. According to our GM, this other player sent her a message immediately after switching sides, saying that he was prepared to make a new character should he die.
Creating characters with the intention of killing other PCs and ruining other players' fun is not cool.
I have not forgotten, worry not!
So, alchemical teas! I'll obviously be crafting some alchemical items because of my archetype, and a few of those could very well be tea flavoured—antitoxin, antiplague and soothe syrups being a few obvious contenders. How very fortunate that my other new character is an alchemist so that I can have both in mind at the same time when I look at what alchemical items to make.
Me too, and add anything Stargate related before and including the original movie too.
Hi James. This might be a silly question, but why can't good aligned clerics cast [evil] spells, and why can't evil clerics cast [good] spells?
I'm not sure I can answer that, but I guess it would fall on the GM to be the judge. We've only had this one instance of PVP (with another one getting close in a different campaign with a slightly different player/GM composition), and it happened fairly organically.
Secret kuthite is creepy -> nobody really trusts kuthite because she is weird and creepy -> other PC contracts lycanthropy -> kuthite makes a deal with a devil that it will cure the lycanthropy, but she will have to kill someone as of yet unspecified in return -> lycanthropy is cured -> kuthite is becoming creepier and creepier, distrust grows -> devil reveals to kuthite that she is to kill her own brother, another PC -> kuthite follows through (but fails).

One-shotting that self-righteous cleric-bastard by turning his head into a canoo remains a particularly pleasant memory.
I thought the self-righteous cleric-bastard was on our side ;P
Man, it felt like that roll20 dice roller was against me. Of course, my own dice were against me as well, back before the GM asked us to all use the dice roller, but... During those 5 levels, I never rolled a crit (whereas you critted many times during the 3 or so levels that you were with us), but I had many nat 1's.
Shortly before that, during the PVP the not so well liked party member started. The oracle was inside while the fighting was going on outside, and just came out in reaction to the sounds, just in time to see the slayer fall.
Oracle: What's going on out here!?
The other character has been out of the world since Saturday, so it's not like anything is really holding me back right now. I'm just sort of trying to figure out what my focus is going to be apart from the healy stuff. Debuff, crowd control, just all in on the healing (I am considering life patron)... I don't know yet. Any suggestions?
And there's still the problem with kinda wanting the peacock, but also kinda not wanting to make too big of a target of my familiar. I should probably just go with the petrifern.
I was at least allowed to go out of rage. It might have been a slight bit metagame-y, but I really didn't want to kill her, and with a beast totem barbarian that means not just strength dropping by 6 points (due to fatigue), but also two fewer attacks. Someone would surely have died otherwise.
That barbarian will save, though... I'm gonna need something for that.
- Roll will save against charm person. 2+3 = 5
Why, Nuffle... Whyyyyy?
I'll look into it properly after my Jade Regent character deadline on Tuesday, or maybe sooner if I get done before time.
And with today's RP session over, here's a warning for you guys that you might be in for a bit of this sort of thing when gaming with me.
EDIT: Come to think of it, with this being PBP and all maybe I'll catch those Freudian slips before I hit submit.
Mint is a rather small plant. Height according to wikipedia ranges from 10 to 120 cm. I think the ones I've seen in the wild have been at most one foot tall, so that'd be fitting for a petrifern.
Well...with green empathy, it'll love me more, I hope you understand :-P
As written all familiars change type to magical beast, so I'm afraid your green empathy won't work :) (Should we house rule this? Magical beast seems like a strange creature type for a plant, but the Familiar Folio doesn't seem to touch upon the creature types of the plant and construct familiars in it).
I also feel myself drawn toward a peacock. It is majestic, elegant, eastern, and would look great at a tea ceremony of any kind, but I'm a little intimidated by the idea of my spell book being small sized.
EDIT: It could be that this line from Improved Familiar is applicable.
Improved Familiar wrote:
if the creature's type is something other than animal, its type does not change
I was looking through familiars looking for a pipefox because I figured it'd be suitable for an eastern-themed witch. It turned out to be an improved familiar and thus off the table, but then I saw it: the petrifern.
If we're going to be travelling across the Crown of the World, it sounds like it's might take some inspiration from Jade Regent, even if we're going in the opposite direction. If it does, may I request as little as possible actually taken from the adventure path? My group is starting JR next weekend, and it would kinda suck to run into a repeat dungeon (or equivalent thereof) a few books down the line ;P
Regarding race, I haven't made up my mind yet. Probably human or something that gives a bonus to int.
I don't think I've ever seen anyone else using the Mother Queen, so I can't say it bothers me. I have seen the male equivalent once or twice though.
What does annoy me a lot is people who use the same avatars as some of the more frequent posters so I end up with those moments of "hey, you're not Rynjin/TOZ/wraithstrike/whomever".

I, on the other hand, love bards. They might be my favourite class, and I didn't jump on the Geisha grenade.
But I've also promised myself to try to stay clear of bard/barbarian type characters, since I've been playing a bard for 3 years straight, am playing a barbarian in another campaign, and will be playing a skald when we finish off the one where I have the bard. I'm trying to force some diversity into my character choices :)
I consider myself a rules lawyer (or maybe a rules advocate, since I generally know how to back down when the GM says no).
I hate Star Trek
I have never even seen Star Trek.
Many Monty Python references fly right past me, and when their very last show was being shown live in movie theatres I told my friend no thanks when she had an extra ticket and offered for me to come with her.
