As the guy who asked the original question I am still amazed how good this thread has been. Thanks for everybody who has responded. In case you are interested I decided to keep playing dnd with my friends. None are Christian but can be spiritual. I do stay away from the demon and devil stuff. Have a great weekend whether you are a believer or not.
I was on these boards few months ago wondering if dnd was okay to playing as I am a Christian. The Paizo gang were all helpful and insightful and I even got some private messages. I am fine with it but limit the controversial stuff like demons. My conscience is clear with God.
Watching the clip of mr paterson I feel he has a point if you are confused and think rpg are evil then why take the chance. The devil will try and tempt everyone with different things - for some this may be RPGs. However I still cannot believe dnd had killed people. Please don't mention Mazes and monsters in this.
As usual good discussion. God bless you all and may your hip points run out.
Now we have a team- where are we all from on the real world- I am from england. Will this affect response times if we are from all over- I presume most of you are from USA.
Looking forward to adventuring with you all

I am going for a half elven cleric that was captured by slavers when young and has no recollection of his family or even her name. She escaped with only the broken manacle that she holds as a signal of pride. She was taken in by a church and was taught to be a cleric. Her name is 13 as that is all she knows. She adventures to provide funds for her church and also to find something- anything about her past...
Character sheet to be done this evening.
Blood woven we could have been prisoners together or you could have passes through the church
As a Christian we presume that demons and devils are real and are there to stop us living with Jesus in the next world. I don't want to summons demons as I feel that trivialities the bible. Strangely, I have no issue with gods- I feel pelor and bahamut have commonality with God and creates good moral discussions.
Thank you all for the comments- all great especially after an awful day at hospital when the staff are iller then the patients.
Thank you very much north king- love that answer and very helpful .
It is so easy gentle giant. We all live by restrictions and laws that are supposed to make our lives better. Being a christian I need to be aware of god's laws even more as they are for our eternal benefit. I could go out and have an affair but my wife presumably would not approve and there would be consequences. I do appreciate your comment thoug.
I am now off to work for aong day nursing at the local hospital. Enjoy yourselves
I do get kind of worried that comments by invisible kirkergaarde are correct, but why is he on pathfinder message boards. I thank you all for your comments. In common sense I will keep with my secular group and keep all characters evil free and pg 13 violence. Devils will be reskinned as nasty creatures- there are millions of monsters anyway. I like the moral choices too . My mind is a little more at ease and it good to see religious types, including pastors play.
