Not constrained by any one game, this book gives you tips applicable to many types of games, with numerous notes on how to apply it to many d20-based games. Rules on how to forage for food and water, changing up experience point progression, make doors interesting again with an Unusual Mechanism table, new mechanical traps for that door, how to handle the buckets of gold characters suddenly find themselves with, making "unobtanium..." Book of Dirty Tricks contains a wealth of tips for both new game masters and long-time veterans of any edition, any roleplaying game!

Check out all the system-neutral gaming aids from Frog God Games right here, like The Tome of Adventure Design, and the legendary Rappan Athuk!

Starting a new campaign with some friends and elected to be the healer.

I have in mind playing a nun of Sarenrae- The Dawnflower, The Everlight, The healing Light. I chose the Healing and Sun domain... bla bla bla... I mean, I made the character and I guess that information is important but my MAIN question is:

I put ranks into Perform Oratory, so that she can preach "the Word of the Everlight" to the masses... The problem is... I don't know much about Sarenrae. I read the little blurb but other than: "She set the sun's fire as eternal torment to Rovagug" I am a little lost for parables, myths, stories, fables preachings for her to give. Does anyone have any tales of glory for the Dawnflower? Or any ideas how to twist known to add a Healing Light twist to something existing?

I have an idea about the scorpion and the frog fable (saying that we should emulate the frog, trust in the goodness of others to our dying breath) but it makes me feel like she is saying: "Hey, be completely naive even if it kills you!"

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Am I the only one who thinks the guy on the cover looks like Harpo Marx?

I'm sure Bill would appreciate that comparison. :D

First, I'm not sure what this has to do with "The Book of Dirty Tricks"?

Second, have you read the following articles?

Meet Kyra, Iconic Cleric
http://paizo.com/paizo/blog/2007/july#v5748eaic9kog

Sarenrae Article on Pathfinder Wiki:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:cBEFrFkcTlIJ:pathfinde r.wikia.com/wiki/Sarenrae+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us
(at the time I posted the above link, I could not get to the original page, but could get to the cached page of it on Google.com)

Hopefully, these might inspire some more insight.

Past this, you could twist the story as Kyra would; namely, give the evil a chance to redeem ONCE, then slaughter them as irredeemable.
