If I made a dish that featured both chickens and eggs, would calling it ‘Mother Daughter Reunion’ be in bad taste?

I have been running Shackled City for one of my groups since early 2004, they are almost finished The Demonskar Legacy. Should I just give up and switch to PFRPG and Golarion?

I am playing a paladin in CotCT and so far the character doesn’t suck, I am having fun and the rest of the group don’t hate me or my character. What am I doing wrong?

Why doesn’t money grow on trees? Does it if you are in the business of selling apples?

Who would win, Chuck Norris or Mister T?

Related question; a couple of the games I am playing in have people playing fighters - they don't seem to suck either, they kick ass, their players are having fun and they are not being completely outshone by the wizards, clerics or druids. WTF? Seriously?? What is going on?

What are the succubi up to?

Is Santa Claus real?

It’s 10.40am on a Sunday, sun is shining outside, I am on my computer posting inane questions. At this point, should I give up on actual human interaction and not bother getting dressed or combing my hair?

Spoiler:
Trick question: I NEVER comb my hair. Yes, I have hair.

Where is the Ark of the Covenant located now?

It's not in a government warehouse; it's in Ethiopia. Forgive me, O great Tyrannosauric Jacobs, for leaping in. The yin/yang one was all my poor will could take.

James, so, why DO birds suddenly appear in the sky when you're near?

I can field this one:

I am clearly stalking JJ.

The Exchange RPG Superstar 2009 Top 8

Why?


Favorite Tom Waits song?


Okay.. who is your favorite Star Trek character (any iteration: original, next gen, DS9, new movie universe, etc.) and why?

Will we ever get a clarification or errata for the horse in the bestiary and how it interacts with the Advanced Simple Template? Also, why is the horse's CMB +5?

Dear Doctor Jacobs,

Are trout you find in rivers the same as trout you find in the sea?

Liberty's Edge

Dear Doctor Jacobs,

Who would win in a fight, an adult male (neutered) common house cat or a juvenile (80cm long) red bellied black snake?

Liberty's Edge

Dear Doctor Jacobs,

Why is it that birds and crocodiles and sharks survived the extinction event that killed off the dinosaurs, but pterosaurs, bird-like dinosaurs and mosasaurs didn’t?

Liberty's Edge

Dear Doctor Jacobs,

Is the Komodo dragon still counted as a cryptid?

Liberty's Edge

Dear Doctor Jacobs,

Is there a case for scientific whaling? What are the ethical implications of selling the meat for food of whales hunted for scientific purposes?

Liberty's Edge

Dear Doctor Jacobs,

When do you think the dolphins will make their move? Should we make a pre-emptive strike?

Liberty's Edge

Dear Doctor Jacobs,

Is it true you can talk to the animals?

Liberty's Edge

What are your thoughts on Paizo hiring someone with the first name Jacob?

Liberty's Edge

What are your thoughts on someone having the name ‘Jacob Jacob’. Would it make any difference if they were a doctor – Doctor Jacob Jacob? How about Michael Michael?

Dear JJ:

Why did you go back to answering "A or B" questions when you said you no longer would?
Yours,
Confused Nondualist

I said I would only answer the "A or B" questions that are worthy.

Which ones are worthy... only I can say! And I say so by answering them.

Why can't PCs just build a city on top of farmland, instead of having to abandon the hex to unrest to eliminate the farmland before they can reclaim the hex and build the city?

Who is the Golarion deity of Earth Sciences?
Why does the Blessing of Fervor spell in the APG not offer a blancmange juggling option?
Would a Druman follower of the Prophecies of Kalistrade deny being a member of secret illuminati-like organisation, and would this be a double or triple bluff?
When is Abrogail II getting married?
What about the secret conspiracy of Andoren cheesemongers planning to take over Osirion?
Which coast of Sarusan should the Land where the Bong Tree grows be located off? Please search messageboards if necessary for further data on the Land where the Bong Tree grows.
Will the Queen of the Wildwood at the heart of the Dreamlands ever be detailed, or is it not in the interests of the Denizens of Leng to see that such information ever gets out?
Who would win a fight between Taldor and Galt?
What happens if you dig under the end of a rainbow in Golarion?
Where does Besmara bury her treasure?
Why hasn't the darkblight spread further yet?
When will the master of the infinite codex, the arms-dealer of the Inner Sea (and RPGSuperstar villain), put in an appearance in a Paizo product?

I might have to put up some rules for posting lots of questions all at once like this too... here goes:

1) Because paving over a farm makes folks unhappy.
2) There is no deity of earth sciences. Mostly because Earth is really far away.
3) Because no one on this side of the pond knows what blancmange is.
4) It'd be a double bluff, but only if he didn't realize it.
5) Abrogail II isn't looking for a king. She's looking for a pet.
6) Until they find a way to keep sand out of the cheese, it won't be going far.
7) Sarusan's strange properties would render any answer I give here irrelevant, so I won't bother.
8) We already DID detail the Queen of the Wildwood. But that product's only available in the dream market, so it's hard to find.
9) I would say Galt, because I like Galt better than Taldor, and I'm the one who gets to make those decisions.
10) Until Bestiary 2 comes out, you find only dirt. AFTER Bestiary 2, you might find either a pot o' gold or a cudgel to the back of the skull.
11) I can't reveal where Besmara buries her treasure without this board's profanity filter kicking in.
12) Because we haven't written that plot yet.
13) By 2083, unless I'm dead by then, in which case I can't say.

Oh, and will there ever be an oil war in Garund?

Edit:
Okay, maybe this one's a bit too silly. If you like you can imagine it's about the black stuff though, instead of the olive oil, although I think an olive oil war would be a lot cooler.

I'm not sure a question on this thread can be too silly.

In any event, until BP finishes their planar shunt to squirt all the gulf oil into Hellmouth Gulf, Golarion will be without an oil war. Once that occurs, though... BEWARE!

Does one's chewing gum lose its flavor overnight when one leaves it adhering to one's bedpost, so that one may return to chewing it upon awaking?

Depends upon if the chewing gum is bedpost flavored before you stick it there.

If devils are misogynistic, how come all their high priests and rulers of devil worshipping countries seem to be women?

Because humans don't understand devils.

ALSO: Abrogail II is not really a devil worshiper. She and her house see devils and hell as tools that humans who are powerful enough can bend to their will. For Abrogail II, the fact that hell is mysogynistic (which isn't something a lot of people on Golarion understand, to be honest) is only proof to her that Hell is bitter about the fact that she's in charge of Cheliax.

Also, men are jerks.

It takes less time to answer these questions than it would to list the ways I'd better spend my time.

I’m making a bard character for PFS, is half elf a good choice? Should I go for an 18 on charisma at first level or will a 16 see me through?

Half elf is always a good choice, and an 18 charisma is better than a 16.

But when it comes down to it, as long as you aren't playing a dwarf, you're doing it right.

I was trying to run a horror themed game the other night, when one of my players asked a question on raising goats and suddenly the session devolved into comedy. How should I have gotten things back on track?

By throwing your Mountain Dew at the bad player's face, then as the table got quiet, you stand up slow and pick up a pencil and hold it like a knife and ask in a calm but serious voice, "OH... so NOW you're scared? Good. We can continue."

If the group's still having fun, no.

If the group is NOT having fun, yes. But only after you TPK them with Nabthataron.

Because if it DID grow on trees, they'd have to change that saying. That's a pain.

** spoiler omitted **

The sun is the source of all pain. Hide in the basement until night, then slink out to blink wetly at the loving gaze of Mother Moon before going about your hidden secret business.
