Exactly, I should be able to decide my anal circumference through role-play. *waggles eyebrows*
Well, Africa is HUGE. There are a ton of different really cool pantheons, religions, myths, traditions, and cultures that mix and change all throughout. I would love to see some of the ancestral, spiritual mythology where spirits of ancestors become dangerous if not appeased, especially since there might be rules for that kind of thing in Occult Adventures. Darn, I wish I remembered more from the paper I wrote on this stuff a little over a year ago. *starts searching files*
I'm currently playing in Kingmaker, but it's unclear if we'll finish. I think we're towards the middle of book 1, erring on the side of the beginning.
I am currently GMing Wrath of the Righteous and Skull and Shackles. We are at the beginning of book 2 in each.
Now for the embarrassing part...
I have started GMing and not finished:
Did not get past the first book in any of those. They fell apart for various reasons: individuals lost interest, I moved, life kept us from getting together. I've learned to better create and manage a play group since then. I am happy to report that all my current campaigns, except possibly Kingmaker, are stable and chugging along well.
As for my favorite, it's tough. I really like both the ones I'm running right now. Skull and Shackles is really fun and casual. I love making pirate voices. Also, the players and I are really enjoying all the pirate RP.
That said, Wrath of the Righteous is amazing. The mythic rules make is crazy fun. It's huge stakes all the way through. The players really feel like superheroes. I love the NPCs I'm getting to play with, who are incredibly well conceived. Not to mention the totally awesome representation with a trans woman in a relationship with a cis woman; and two guys, including one who is a
Character's Class:in a relationship; and
Cleric of Shelyn,
Character Name:who I'm playing as asexual. The high powered demon butt kicking ties it all together, and you have my favorite AP so far.
I have to dispute your point A, considering the deluge of people, Youtube style, coming onto the boards to say "Unsubscribed" every time a new AP is released.
I don't work for Paizo, so I could hardly say for certain... BUT, I doubt the "deluge" (I hope that doesn't come of as too sassy, but it just doesn't seem like that many people to me) of people saying "unsubscribed" is very many compared to the overall number of subscribers. I also don't think they all actually unsubscribe. Plus, even if they do, they'll resubscribe on the path after that probably, and that means that people are resubscribing to this path after unsubscribing for Giantslayer. Personally, I like having all the other totally sweet material in the volumes, even if I don't get to play them all. I have a subscription despite having never finished an AP. I'm working really hard to remedy that with Skull & Shackles, so we'll see.
Hey, just to briefly introduce myself: I'm Pete, a gay male gamer and writer. I've loved Pathfinder for a long time, and now I want to get more involved in these forums.
I noticed you talking about the state of Gay Marriage laws in the US. It's clear that SCotUS is moving towards getting gay marriage legal all over the United States. It's an exciting time. Now I just hope other LGBTQQIAA issues don't take as long to see their day in the legislative/legal spotlight.
On the eleventh day of Superstar, my true love gave to me,

Anybody's entry also the first thing they've designed for an RPG? I've got some high-fives just for y'all extra-gutsy newbs.
That's me. I adore Pathfinder and have been a GM for a long time, and I love writing. It seemed natural to put those things together and enter. I wanted to last year, but I was feeling a bit directionless. Now, I'm ready not just to enter this contest, but try to get my writing out there in general.

I personally, as a homosexual, do not find the use of the term here degrading. And while in a casual conversation it may be overly-clinical, I think it fits appropriately in many situations including this discussion. I think the problem of the clinical and at times degrading use of the term "homosexual" by certain people will have to be a more natural change as people become more comfortable with non-heterosexual sexualities.
Also, as I noticed some of the arguments here against Paizo's choice to include non cisgendered heterosexual individuals in their setting involved morality saying that their personal opinion should be respected. I disagree because I don't think morality is a nebulous concept. I think it can be defined qualitatively, if not quantitatively, like most things in the universe. I think the purpose of morality is to increase the happiness of each individual to it's maximum without allowing an activity which decreases the happiness of another individual. Since homosexuality doesn't actually affect anyone, I would say that it couldn't be immoral. Any negative feelings toward homosexuality are not a result of morality, but of unfounded prejudice. Obviously, and somewhat ironically, this is just my opinion. I do, however, think that a moral code founded in rationality is much more relevant than a moral code with little or no basis.
Lastly, I am hugely thankful to Paizo for their efforts to include gay male characters. It means a lot to me and I'm sure it means a lot to gay male gamers everywhere. Thanks.
I see one can not say anything negative against the LBGT material found in this adventure path otherwise you will be removed. Consider this my subscription cancellation.
I would like to state for the record that it is the kind of inclusiveness that is shown in this AP that makes me want to continue to be a subscriber to the APs, a subscriber to the core books, and a frequent buyer of many Pathfinder products, even though I don't make a lot of money. Also, it is one very big reason I am a loyal customer to Paizo and would not seriously consider going to Wizards for my RPG needs.
The subforum for that is called my porn folder. Yes please.
