I'm a GM who recently relocated to the north coast and I'm looking for players. I'd like to run an AP--either Iron Gods, Reign of Winter or Strange Aeons--and I have one player but I need 2 or 3 more.
I'm from the Sacramento area and I've been playing various iterations of D&D for 18 years, GMing for about 10 years, and I have a great gaming setup in my home. Just having a hard time finding other gamers up here!
This looks good and I think I'm going to run it next week. My only complaint is the lovecraftian misogyny; I don't think there's a single female in the whole module. I guess that might actually be a good thing.
I am in 2 different games with RotRL, DMing one and playing in one--the one I'm DMing is about 1 1/2 modules behind the one I'm playing in. In the game I run we have 4 women and 2 men, the funny thing is one of the men is the "tag-a-long" spouse, not really that into gaming but his wife is so he participates so he won't feel left out. In my game the players are:
Female Gnome Rogue with a female player
Male Shoanti Barbarian, male player, this is the tag-a-long husband
Female Elf Cleric of Desna, female player and probably my most committed player, she's the wife of Mr. Tag-a-long
Female Half-Elven Half-Varisian Sorceress with fey bloodline, female player (my sister)
Male Chelaxian Marshal (converted to PFRPG), my sister's wife
Male Chelaxian Paladin of Iomedae, lately of Lastwall, male player
In the game I play in, I'm the only girl and I play a half-elf cleric. One difference I notice between the 2 groups is gender comes up a lot more in the group with mostly men--my character's gender is alluded to or reacted to several times each gaming session. In the game I DM, gender hardly ever comes up, even times when I would have thought it might, like all the female characters failing saves and running away.
So I am trying to figure out about the Laughing Touch ability -- can it be used on creatures that are immune to mind-affecting effects? It doesn't say anything about it in the description of the ability, but it sure SEEMS like a mind-affecting effect. I had a player try to use it against a zombie-like creature and it didn't seem right.
