This is probably out of place, but I like the Pathfinder RPG and am adapting its concepts to d20 Modern (so I guess it's Pathfinder with GPS). Here's what I did for Weapon Training:

For Weapon Training, characters may select from the following feats but must still meet all the prerequisites: Advanced Combat Martial Arts, Advanced Firearms Proficiency, Advanced Two-Weapon Fighting, Archaic Weapon Proficiency, Brawl, Combat Martial Arts, Defensive Martial Arts, Exotic Melee Weapon Proficiency, Improved Brawl, Improved Two-Weapon Fighting, Personal Firearms Proficiency.

The idea is that humans being versatile should get to choose from either a simple, martial, or exotic weapon, or perhaps a feat related to combat.

You could extend that a bit further by saying that a society that views homosexual behavior as part of the norm (I suspect elves might), or is a tolerated minority group, a gay paladin wouldn't be out of place.

Considering that 1 in 10,000 men and 1 in 30,000 women (an estimate by the Amsterdam Gender Dysphoria Clinic) seek sexual reassignment there should be at least one in a large city in D&D and several in a metropolis. It may not be for everyone, but I think this kind of background is interesting, both from a role playing and immersion perspective.

I seem to recall a cursed magical item called the girdle of femmininity/masculinity that magically switches a character's gender. That would be a boon for folks wanting gender reassignment.

And drow are into SM? Hm, Verik married a drow at the end of his career, no wonder he's happy... ;)

Pardon my ignorance but there's a shoanti blog?

I saw the Rage Points and thought, oooo. It's an interesting way to keep barbarians fun while not making them just another fighter variant. Plus, when I rebuilt my old AD&D character to use Pathfinder, the combination of 3.5 psionics and Pathfinder Rage Points meshed well. From a compatibility standpoint maybe they're not the best, but that could be solved by turning the rage powers into barbarian specific feats and selecting one as he/she levels up.

I just rebuilt an old barbarian character of mine into Pathfinder Alpha 2, and I like the skill system. I didn't see the Alpha 1 system so I cannot comment, but not having to track half-skill ranks is a nice change. If Paizo is gearing for backwards compatibility then the new skill system is good for that. Perhaps a way to convert rank-based skills to the Alpha 1 system would appeal to both parties while retaining the system's goal of compatibility.

Eh, I think my character will stick to his flattop while he still has hair...

Just don't ask about the Numerian spaceship.

Ok, I have to ask about the Numerian spaceship. :)

... or you can just late nature take its course...

I'm *really* curious to see what the issue has in store for the Shoanti!

Say, that issue is going to be released next month! Verik Wolf looks forward to visiting his old Sklar-Quah clansmen!
