Sooner or later I'll get to finishing up the PF Classic stuff I'm writing and start through the publishing process.

... not that kind of publishing.

As I've mentioned, I really don't need a rule set that moves more towards 'fuzzy' rules, as we have a multitude of homebrew rulesets for when we want to play a more freeform game.

So PF 2.0 doesn't sound like it's a step in the right direction for the particular groups for which we run PF.

Some players just need concrete structure with which you can beat them over the head. If PF moves away from that, we really don't need it, as we have plenty of lighter-weight alternatives.
But I'll certainly give it a look-see once it's got a published PRD...

I'm thinking of things like I've already altered the death rules and negative hit point limits. I saw an interview where they revealed a mostly complete outline of how they're handling it in PF2 (I only had to fill in a couple gaps with best guess ideas at the time), and I liked it better. More streamlined and easier to remember without having to look it up, but yet it's not fuzzy.

I don't think they're going in that fuzzy direction - I think they're just going in a more efficient/streamlined direction - for better or for worse.

I just do negative con score= dead. At 0 you are unconscious unless you make a save or have diehard or whatever. Yes, you are in trouble if you have a con score of 8. But I also have players roll 2d6+6 for stats so you probably don't have an 8.

Glad to see PF is going the way of static rather than random stats, and the boost approach to ability score generation looks fun.

Actually, I'd say that in many ways Pathfinder 2nd edition goes toward more strict side than what I would in mind as "fuzzy" rules. It's definitely not light-weight system. Some things might be simplified but a lot of things are getting more complex...

And I heard it was beginning to look like 5e. If they're going to leave so many things, like the number of monsters in an encounter to GM discretion...I'll pass because I don't even trust my own discretion as a GM.

Oh, work, how I loathe thee...

They've decided to shut down all overtime for IT, but still expect me to be back in the office at 11pm tonight for a four hour change, I need to be on the road by about 7am tomorrow for our plans to drive to Wisconsin, and they also expect me on an 8am phone call tomorrow. This is ridiculous. And yet people are going to complain when I'm not available during the day because of this. Either give me the OT or make me salaried. I'm tired of trying to balance this madness.

EDIT: I hate those nightmares where you're naked at work.

Yeah that's what companies do. You'll need to voice out this is really unfair to you - you can't be around all the time. Understandably when push comes to shove, I can (for short periods of time), happily sit in the office until 9 pm. And not bother about OT or whatsoever. But hey, I have a life too, so don't make me do it for more then a week.

My group hasn't decided if we want to move to PF2 or not. In either case, IF we swap, it won't be until we finish our current campaigns (Savage Tide is in the middle of Chapter 3, and Iron Gods starts Chapter 2 tomorrow), which should give PF2 enough time to build up all the expanded material - more classes, more races, more monsters, etc. etc. etc. - that we won't have to play with bare-bones base game.

I read that they're going to keep selling Classic Pathfinder. As books, as long as they're in stock, and as PDFs. I'll keep playing Classic Pathfinder as long as I want, if I'm dissatisfied with 2nd Ed. Just as I still play D&D 3.5. I have 3 complete sets of the Core Rulebooks for 3.5.

Though sometimes if it comes to a particularly unfair encounter, like say deeper darkness in a level 1-5 PFS scenario, I'll say like, this encounter is WTF. Though if running as a PFS scenario, I will have no choice but to comply and run encounter as written.

Eh, Paizo's never gonna please everyone. Including me.

I'm also pleasantly surprised that healing spells have finally been recategorized as necromancies! And that PF is taking one of 4e's best pages and applying a level-based AC bonus.

So on my passing glance at PF 2e, it's looking better than 5e at least.

Nonplussed with the treatment of 10th level spells tho -- I'd be plussed by a next spell level of level-appropriate spells, not simply gating the game's most plot-devicey/game-warping 9th level spells behind a feat.

Weird, unsettling exchange with our landlord/housemate while he and I were alone in the kitchen.

He'd already had a little wine, so was mildly tipsy, and was monologuing at length about "if I ever run into a woman maybe about my age, maybe a little older, creative, quirky, has kids, has made a few mistakes, looking to start over, let me know."

And it suddenly dawned on me... was he suggesting, "If things don't work out, and you're interested..." but politely so he could deny it if necessary?

Because if so, I'm glad he was "polite", but a little freaked/creeped out.

I mean, who, exactly, presupposes that your customers are going to be computer literate enough to know that they should click the little buttons that don't say they do anything, instead of either presuming they are background art, or actively avoiding them due to fearing that they stumbled across an unfinished or overly-authoritative system element? Second equally valid question (presupposing the sucky one needs to be there for some stability reason, or somesuch), why is the sucky version the primary version?

Bizarre Bay Area Fact #843: You'd have to try pretty hard to find any store around here that doesn't carry "real" ginger ale or beer. Yeah, you can get Crapada Dry, but why on Earth would you want to?

My personal favorite is Fever Tree, but others swear by some of the others; I think Q does one, too. And there's always Bundaberg, though it's my least-favorite unless you're adding rum.

"Crapada Dry" sounds terrible, but "Canada Dry" is actually relatively tasty. ;)

I've had "real" ginger ale and ginger beer, too, and those are also good, but really strong. So depends on what you're in the mood for, and have available.

Which second edition.

Also, what is more "modern" gaming art?

D&D of course, which I found completely invalidated their discussion because I remember 2nd edition, it was terrible!
Terrible, or to put it another way, AWESOME!

What I love most about this comment is that it is accurate (because, you know, English language), subversive (because, you know, common-use thereof), and also (in my opinion, at least partially due to implication*) wrong (because D&D2E art was not the be-all many thought it to be).

I will say, it wasn't bad art, and, in fact, some of it was pretty rockin' and sometimes even better than some PF art, but a lot of times I was rather grateful that the book covers we used back then were, well, covered, and not (just) because it was hiding the "Dungeons & Dragons" logo.

Just... dang, it, woman, yes, we can see you've got a high charisma score, but that will not save you in battle. Join team, "Put a shirt on!" just... please!

(Also, some of the dwarves were suuuuuuuuuuuper uncanny valley. Just like a lot of the Halflings in the 5e book.)

I will say that it was so superior to 1E that, had I come from that system, I likely would have looked upon the art as if it were the sacred light of revelation; also PF art is exceptionally stylized to have a super-hero and/or animation/cartoon appearance, whereas the old 2E stuff worked on being more realistic and smooth (but often ended up right next to the uncanny valley, if not deeply inside it).

But, either way, neither is outdated.

* Clarification; just going by words alone, and possible intent, it is, actually, correct. However, as a response to a comparison/contrast, without giving a more nuanced take, it can appear to be a rejection or even attempted reversal of the premise - that is, it could be read to suggest that 2E art is good and PF art is sucky. Instead, I would suggest that Limey's reply was exclusively, "2E art was awesome!" and had no particular opinion offered about PF art - such a take-away would make my statement that it is "wrong" - in that humorous (colloquially-) "ironic" way - itself, "wrong." Thus, my word choice really should have been, "What I love most about this comment is that it is accurate (because, you know, English language), subversive (because, you know, common-use thereof), and also potentially misleading (because <long paragraph where I describe both arts values, in my interpretation>)." But, I mean, come on, guys. Come on. I had to call him wrong. This is the internet! There is no place for nuance, here! ... also the other thing wouldn't really fit in a parenthetical, and I really wanted to make that structure work, for some reason. It still doesn't, but, uh... OH, LOOK OVER THERE, A SHINY DISTRACTION! >flees<

It totally makes sense to be creeped out.

I have to say, it's always weird to know when you've been flirted with (however innocently), after-the-fact. I'm always like, "Oh, crap, wait, what?" like an hour or two later, when I finally realize what was being implied, and them I'm all awkward and self-conscious and going, "Wait, did they think I was flirting?! Aaaaaaggggghhhhh"

Fortunately, outside of pretending to be a person in a game, I seem to be pretty bad at flirting. No joke, one time a girl told me that I had pretty eyes, and I said, "Oh! Thanks! Yeah, it's just contacts. My real eyes are just brown." And I promptly ignored her and went about my schoolin' (with a slight look back up to her face to nod a "thanks" before going back to my book). This was back in High School, when I wore green contacts. I was rather confused about her subsequent expression (a slight loss of wistfulness? what?), along with the slight body movement (vague deflation/expulsion of air? why?), and similar cues. I promptly shrugged and forgot about it. Then, when I was back home, in the middle of a really difficult battle in Final Fantasy Tactics, it hit me. ... wait, she was... disappointed? Hurt? Why would she b- OH SNAP, SHE WAS FLIRTING!

(She never did so with me again, that I could tell, for the record. Of course, as-evidenced, I'm pretty bad at picking up signals.)

Exact quotes are vague, as, you know, it's been over two decades.

But stuff like that has happened all the time. I really have no idea why, either. I'm literally a fat white nerd invested in nerd culture. I am not a "bad boy." I am not a "smart guy." I am not a "pretty boy." I am neither muscle-bound nor an athlete. I am not a hard worker (unless my weird ADD lets up because it's a thing my mind has latched onto for reasons that are beyond me, in which case I get bogged down in details and frustratingly stubborn). I talk way too daggum much (it's a thing - my wife and I sit to have a nice interactive conversation, and eventually she gets put to sleep by the droning). I'm like... the opposite of things that are supposed to be attractive, to anyone. What do women see in this?! AND WHY DOES NO ONE EVER TELL ME WHEN THEY'RE FLIRTING SO I CAN POLITELY DECLIIIIIIIIIIIIINE

(I'm basically a writer, but one who never learned how to work hard enough to actually, you know, write. No, that is not pride. YYyyyyyuuurrrrgggghhh.)

Yea things like that can (I'm extrapolating here, my brain does not function like other peoples…) get creepy, unsettling and weird.

But, I'll be honest…it really sound kind of like something I would say, since I have a particular bad case of making-weird-passes-syndrome.
Its kind of a nervous, insecure and strange way of saying:
"Madame, You seem a smart, funny and beautiful woman, whom I wish were single so I could (possibly) share a degree of intimacy with you in the future..."
(See? its a kind of, no matter how you try to parse things like this out, it really sound strange and weird when put to text, instead of getting it expressed through a combination of speech and body language, but that's besides the point.)
I have done so many times, at many instances, in many different contexts, and found that really it comes over kind of awkward and weird.
Again with a bit of honesty, heck I might have tried to make such a pass (hopefully a bit better worded…) at you if I meet you, felt that there was chemistry between us, but most importantly, that you felt the same way and reciprocated on any advances made!
Though, I must say, parts of your landlords "loud musings" are really on the nose and clunky/aggressive, so feeling, at the very least somewhat uncomfortable about it is very warranted.

Edit: Sorry rambling, and there's some personal insecurities in there too.

Edit Edit: LM i hope I'm not overstepping my bounds here. I don't want to make you feel uncomfortable.

Hopefully you don't have too much interaction with him in the future but him being your landlord...guess probably unlikely that situation happens. I don't really know how to handle this, I'd probably ignore it on the first pass, but if he got pushy, probably flash the wedding ring and go, hey dude, I've got a husband and kids.

Now ok, confessions time. I've never started flirting with anyone in RL. I literally didn't feel the urge to approach guys. I mean Orlando Bloom, ok sure a little happy mooning, but nothing comes out of it.

The strange thing was the only time I really felt upset was when someone was leaving my kingdom(think group of players like clash of clans) in a game called utopia. We talked about the game, other things...I was basically the kingdom's shrink. Yeah imagine me as a shrink. So yeah I was feeling really upset on when he left for greener pastures, and I wonder if I had a crush on him, back then.

And grats, Captain CY!

Did I tell you about the time I wore blue and pink track shoes with a pink dress because I forgot to bring my work shoes to work?
