Yeah… I don’t think I’d cast a lightning bolt underwater. I would question the one about the black tentacles though. That might be the GM getting caught up in the “gotcha” moment.

Yeah, similar. Mogollon Rim doesn’t have the hoodoos though. I hope you were able to visit Zion and Cedar Breaks while you were there, Diego. All three are pretty close together, and definitely worth the time.

I scaled it. Kaer Maga is (very) roughly 330 miles from the western coast, and approximately 130 miles from the south coast.
Denver, meanwhile is approximately 950 miles from the west coast, and a similar distance to the Gulf of Mexico. Very much more land bound.

Interestingly, here in Arizona, we have a feature that is similar to the Storval Rise. The Mogollon Rim. Major difference being that the Mogollon Rim has desert at its base and forest on top, opposite of how the Storval Rise is.

I would count the Cinderlands, Storval Plateau area as highlands, yes. But that’s just me.

Yeah. The dice like to do that.

Shorts, a tee-shirt and sandals in the summer.

Long pants, shoes; with socks, and layers as needed in the winter.

Not because the meteorologist said so. Because I like comfort.

Dude, that would be amazing. And if they put in some speakers and a motion sensor you could really freak people out by saying: "HI! Welcome to my mausoleum!" whenever they walked by...

Is it too late to update my answer?

Yeah, that’s what they did to me…

Have a prison ship with one airlock to prevent escapes.

Space OSHA has words with the Warden.

Prison ship sky cell with easy open airlocks...

That would be a thought: prison ship has airlock on cell, with prisoner accessible controls on the inside. Legally, this is to allow for emergency evacuation, and so the controls have proper safeties to prevent accidental usage.

Privately, its to provide an easy method for prisoners to kill themselves, if they really want.

Prisoner has friend rendezvous with prison ship. Prisoner let’s self out of cell; leaves with friend.

Easiest escape ever.

What gear do you consider essential? A rogue's kit contains a backpack, a bedroll, a belt pouch, caltrops, chalk (10), a flint and steel, a grappling hook, an iron pot, a mess kit, a mirror, pitons (10), rope, soap, thieves’ tools, torches (10), trail rations (5 days), and a waterskin. That's 37 lbs worth of gear and you'll need to refill your waterskin at least once a day or risk dehydration. It also costs 50 GP.

Remove the bedroll, replace it with a winter blanket. Remove the iron pot. Carry only 3 pitons. Get a silk rope instead. Carry only 3 torches. I’d probably cut the grappling hook too. I’m too lazy to do the math, but if you are still overloaded, you can remove the caltrops, and a couple days rations, and carry as few as one torch.

If doing a long trek where you need rations, you’d carry the extra rations/water in a sack, so you could drop it if needed.

This assumes that someone in the party can cast light, or dancing lights for illumination purposes. And maybe someone else could bring the cooking pot.

If teleportation existed on a planet similar to Earth, you could actually arrive on a different day than you left. Which could matter. The time difference that came into play in the Jules Verne story: Around the World in Eighty Days, comes to mind. And they were only traveling by steamers, trains, and hot air balloons.

Time zones came into existence because of railroads, so yeah, if the setting has common use of teleportation; then time zones would exist.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a character that owned a pocket watch. It would be a cool bit of character development, but I’ve always had other priorities. As you mentioned, it seems like people seem to know when it’s time to be where they need to be.

As GM, you could design your game in such a way, that accurate time keeping would be necessary. If that’s what you want.

I completely agree with this^.
But, if your character has dumped dex, such as a cleric might do, you could miss every attack you made with your crossbow.
This actually happened to the bloodrager, in a game I was in. It wasn’t a crossbow, and I don’t think that the character’s dex was completely dumped either. But he had no feats supporting archery, and just didn’t roll very well.
Luckily my switch hitting fighter, and the bow specialist wizard brought the manticore down to earth pretty quickly.

I’ve got some bad news for you…

I feel like the official position is now that Pathfinder and Starfinder do not exist on the same timeline, which is the only sensible thing they could do because they can't just update Starfinder everytime something happens in Pathfinder and they don't want Starfinder to write Pathfinder into a corner.

I mean, what is the Gap if not "History, and continuity, is broken."

Different timelines means no need for the Gap. In my not at all humble opinion, it’s what should have been done in the first place. But, it is what it is. Maybe being a god didn’t suit Noticula. I’m thinking you could use your god powers to secure an unassailable position as a demon lord, if such was desired. It explains the change, and you don’t even have to resort to the timeline dodge.

Noticula may, or may not have leveraged her portfolio back to demon lord. She is listed as such in Starfinder.

Its not like this is a game with rules or anything. Rules that are there to prevent GMs from doing whatever arbitrary nonsense they want because 'drama'. The rules of the game are there to give all the parties standardized set of expectations on how the world works. If the players don't know how the world operates they can't make informed decisions about their actions.

Pathfinder isn't a movie, it isn't a novel and everyone's lives are better when people don't treat it that way.

I completely agree that the GM needs to stick to the rules as much as possible. Playing with GM Cheaterpants soon becomes tedious. On the other hand, the rules don’t cover every situation. ( Though in this case, the grapple rules do cover it.)

What drew me to D&D years ago was my love of fantasy novels, and my desire to place myself into the story. The same holds true for Pathfinder, today. If the game doesn’t provide some sort of feel of being a story. a novel, or a movie, then it would hold no draw for me. If Pathfinder is reduced to a mere war game, well, there are better ones. Chess, for example.

You could do it with a cleric/assassin team. Cleric casts ‘hold person’, assassin does the cutting. The spell can be cast from a distance away, so in a busy street environment, the PCs might not even notice the cleric at first.

Q: When does a duck wake up?

A: At the quack of dawn.

It seems like it wouldn’t be a problem…

But your instinct is telling you it will be.
I think I’d go with a different character even if they were very similar. The different build would probably play a bit different anyway, right?


R. I. P.

The Professor.

Should have been running.

Caint never have too much gee-tar.


Now we’re playing the blues.



Ting. Ting.
Ting, ting, ting. Tingaling!

Spiders and snakes, spiders and snakes. I’m gonna haz me some spiders and snakes!

Of course, we can eat the snakes and spiders whilst climbing up chutes and sliding down ladders.

*tingaling, ting, ting!*

Ting, ting, tink.

And I will play the triangle!

Or, 44 bassoons and a piccolo.

Soup disappears into the flappy hole. Satisfaction follows.

I have a hole in my head, and a hole in my head, and a hole in my head, and a hole in my head, and a hole in my head.
Just that many, and no more.

So many things explained, so many others obfuscated. I’m beginning to think that entropy is winning.

Looks like Count Reiner Heydrich is the last poster. Congratulations on a fine victory Count.

So, that’s why they keep bringing us gin & tonics and filet mignon.

“Super strength and termite powers.”
“Super strength! And termite powers!”

So I went away, but now I’m back, and this is what I found.

Too bad it didn’t go further. Great necro though.

“That’s a fine idea. Let’s all be cardboard standees.”

Places a cardboard replica of himself, then exits to a more interesting thread.

That goes without saying.
