Tnemeh, thanks for throwing your thoughts in...
Personally, in my game, I award heavily for ROLE PLAYING...I've even instituted a practice where if everyone at the table foregoes mentioning game mechanics ("Hey, do you have any cure light wounds left", "Will your sleep spell effect those higher hit dice characters") and works to replace them with statements that the character would be more likely to make ("Father, could you take a moment to pray over my wounds?", "Do you really feel that your arcane energies can lull that Giant to sleep?"), I award the party a 20% bonus to earned experience points for the night!!!!
I feel, as does everyone who's worked to achieve this, that it truly adds to the overall experience and makes it alot more fun!
I mean, honestly folks...it seems as though the mechanics have overrun the entire game.
Whatever happened to having a weakness?
Whatever happened to creating an interesting character concept based on the personality and the way it interacted with the class?
Why does everything have to be "the best"?
They can't associate with anyone who offends their moral code....I can't see how a CN wont do that, never mind worshiping a CN diety. Even a CG will offend their moral code often. Remeber they are Good true but they are also very definitely Lawful as well.
But what about the moral codes related to codpieces?

But now looking at how I worded it can see as a little on the over the top munchkin style of gaming but if you dont make optimized characters at our table you get laughed at and joked about being a worthless party memeber because all the other characters outshine you or in my brother case your characters are really worthless
Perhaps a new group is in order?
I have chosen characters based upon a campaign concept and I have chosen characters based upon the simple desire to use a particular weapon or class feat. I have had fun with both. There is no one right way to create a character Flynnster.
I am sorry to inform you of this, but you are wrong. However, due to Paizo's rules, you're allowed to your opinion...so enjoy :)
I'd like to challenge you to something.
I'd like to challenge you to read through the Gods (Gods & Magic, for sale HERE!!!), and find one that would be interesting to be a paladin for. Find something particular about the deity and their laws/views that inspires you, and create a character around that.
Somewhere, deep down inside, I think you'll have more fun playing the resulting character.
The very first response I put on here was commenting on his deciding factor for choosing a god his Paladin would revere be that of what weapon the god uses.
I'm sorry, this is just monumentally lacking in character concept, and should be considered a slap in the face to the contributors that created the Gods for Golarion.
Wow, something of an ass-backward way to go about a character concept, ain't it?
Any thoughts on what you wish to multi-class into? I mean, with the character concept of "I use a great sword", there's just so much to move on to!
This just begs for a level of Rogue (sneak attack!!!)...and possibly barbarian (gotta get that extra 10' movement!!!)...
How about a PRC?
And as a result, you were putting your own agenda ahead of what I was saying, which oddly enough, is along the same lines of what you are saying....
I was talking in reference to the OP...I was commiserating with him...and offering him my thoughts on the overall scenario...not to you...who the hell are you ? :)
And with regards to failure to communicate...well, ciao...enjoy the other threads!!!
I am curious...did you actually read what I had to say? Please try re-reading it.
What I said was, there are LOTS of people not represented by hollywood as being a cross section of the demographic. I added in the commrodary of stating my own personal situation and how I identify with him. What I then did was state that hollywood, which bows to the mighty gold piece, bows to what "most" people view as being "normal"...as "acceptable"...and that whinging about it won't change a damned thing.
Boycott. I am certain that the USD10 will not be missed in the buckets, and buckets of cash the swine of an industry will be wallowing in. This is where my comment about "you never go full retard" came in...because apparently you didn't read what I had to say.
The point I was attempting to make is that the film does not diminish someone simply because they are not "included" in representation.
I am grossly overweight. I'm never represented in anything unless it is the target of jokes and slapstick humor.
The simple fact of the matter is, with regards to homosexuality, not everyone accepts it. So sorry, but that is the truth. Boycott it all you freaking want. Remember "you never go full retard" ? Well, that got that movie boycotted...yet, oddly enough, the movie did VERY well.
Our society is not perfect. Humans are FAR from perfect. Cry all you want, hollywood will continue to offend in the name of "decency".
HONESTLY? Easy on the eyes? Ick...not even in a school marmish way with Palin's glasses and hairdo do I find her to be attractive...
Now, what's her name from 30 rock and SNL that did the Palin impersonation...now her...whoa.....particularly so even in the Palin conservative outfit...whoa...
,DETAILPLUS AS (
Honestly...Palin to me sounds like she's from Minnesota...and nobody else I know from Alaska (especially Wasilla where she's from) sounds like she does....
I grew up in Upstate New York, but I've lived in Texas for 22 years now, so my accent has morphed a bit.
I grew up in Eagle River, Alaska...and someone freaked me out once commenting on my "Alaskan Accent"...there IS no such thing...but they had no clue that I'd lived there before!!!!
As to the multiclassing: I thought I pointed out that my sandwich's mother was born in a Parisian bakery. Man, you write a background and the DM doesn't even read it. Sheesh.
As to the parisian mother...well, in the UK she'd be considered a slag....
As to bakground story...comeon...GROW UP and BE MATURE....pork goes ON A ROLL...dammit!!!
Unfortunately, My feeling is that we have ENTIRELY too much of a production line from Kindergarten to College.
Come on now...not EVERYONE is ready for college. Not everyone NEEDS to go! And what in the world ever happened to vocational schools?
My IT experience started with being an online tech support person for AOL back in the day when "internet access" was $4.95 an hour. We did all of our work in the chat rooms, and we're expected to type in complete sentences and with a modicrum of decent spelling....if we didn't, we'd get let go from the position (which waived the hourly fee for our own internet access!!!).
I for one know that I am butchering english when it comes to run on sentences and punctuation (I write very stream of consciousness and find it hard not to use "....")...but dear lord, at least I KNOW the difference!

Valid points all. That was precisely what I was wanting.
One thought...dry erase does tend to wipe off rather easily (think putting your hand on the map, etc...) and more easily than overhead projector pens that you use for battlemats...
