It is a beautiful day here in the bay area and it got me thinking about putting a list together of your favorite contributors to these threads. Believe it or not the trolls are not as prevelant as you might believe. You can list as many as you wish! I figure this belongs in the advice section as you can visit their individual sites and seek out wisdom.

Let me apologize in advance if I spell your "name" wrong. For me I have found these folks advice to be helpful

Blueluck, Adamantium Dragon, Thalin, DM Arkwright, Leisner, Lamontius, Ravingdork. I know I am missing a bunch

3.5 Royalist, Shallowsoul .... oh, wait.

I just found this thread... I know it's old, but the advice board needs a nice, positive thread to even out the new rogue one.

I've found williamoak to be a very helpful poster and one who also has interesting threads to make about his various builds.

EDIT: And of course blackbloodtroll, even if his use of commas is sometimes of dubious correctness.

I usually find myself smiling after reading one of Lamontius' posts. I wouldn't be surprised if he has more of my favorites than any other single poster.


4 people marked this as a favorite.

I find Ashiels posts generally well thought out, well contructed and thought provoking, even when I disagree with them.


On the top of my head: jiggy, cheapy, gauss, grick, tri omega zero. And propably 20 - 30 others.

I havent seen a Shallowsoul post in ages, we must be due one soon?

Mark Hoover is my hero (for his narrative abilities and ideas). Also Dr. Deth, though sometimes I disagree with him on some points, I generally find him well reasoned.

And the same people others have already mentioned. I feel there is definitely a core group of memebers on this board who really try to provide advice and rules answer to benefit the larger user base and the board is a better place for it I think. I may not always agree with people, but I appreciate their support of the community.

Most of my favorites have been listed, so I'll mention Conman the Bardbarian as one that matches my sense of sarcasm. Mikaze is also love.

Hitdice is also pretty cool. And I was almost remiss enough to forget to mention our evil president. Evil Lincoln is a pillar of our community.

I'll hop on board* and agree that Ashiel and DrDeth are pretty sane, reasonable, friendly folks even when I disagree with them strenuously. I actually feel like I agree with both of them way more than I disagree...the disagreements just seem to come up a lot more in discussion.

I also always find TriOmegaZero, Lemmy, Tacticslion, blackbloodtroll, Jiggy, Cheapy, williamoak, and most of the people listed thus far (as well as several others I'm forgetting, I'm sure) to be nice, reasonable, people who I feel contribute a great deal to the threads they post in.

And, as TOZ notes, Mikaze is love.

*Pun intended.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

There are too many folks to name on the boards who I feel are great contributors to the many subjects discussed here. I have noticed a small number haven't been on as much lately, though, such as Klaus van der Kroft and Deathquaker. I've been missing their insights.

Ain't that the way? People probably see these forums as hotbeds of strife and disagreement, but that's because people usually don't bother to post when they're nodding vigorously in agreement with what's been said. That'd make for some pretty long, boring threads if they did...

"blah blah blah, therefore, something or other."

"Yep!"

"Ditto!"

"You're so right!"

"+1!"

As to Mad Geniuses I read with enthusiasm:

Ashiel, Mark Hoover, Tarkxt, AdamantiumDragon, Deadmanwalking, Streamofthesky, AHighlyRegardedExpert, Abraham Spalding, Deathquaker, Soulgambit, Tels, TheLoneCleric, Sir Thugsalot, Cheapy, Treantmonk, Blueluck, Lemmy, Ice Titan, Lamontius, Gauss, Grick, TOZ, blackbloodtroll, MC Templar...I'm sure I'll think of 5 others just after posting this.

All my favorites have been mentioned, but I'll name drop Ravingdork, TOZ, blackbloodtroll, and Mark Hoover as they have had a particularly strong influence on my development as a player and my level of system mastery over the last couple years.

Also, I need to mention Treantmonk. I've never actually seen him post, but any thread such as this needs to have his name in it somewhere.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Tarkxt, Ashiel, Marthkus (Even when we disagree), the extremely cool gentlemen who invited me to their pbp game, BBT, Tacticslion (Very cool guy), Kirth Gerson and his glorious houserules and anyone not named here who doesn't use absolutes when posting.

Edit: Gauss too.

I'm sorry - it's possibly my fault. I've been running DQ ragged with our current PbP game progressing at the speed of a THOUSAND SUNS! ... or rather at the speed of eleven players. My apologies for depriving the board of her insights.

Alphabetical Order (unless it's not 'cause distracted*):

Abraham Spalding, AdamantiumDragon, AHighlyRegardedExpert, andreww, Ashiel, blackbloodtroll, Cheapy, Claxon, Deadmanwalking, Deathquaker, Diego Rossi, Dr Deth, Gauss, Gorbacz, Ice Titan, Indegare, Jaelithe, Jiggy, Kryzbyn, Kthulu (well, sometimes ;P), LazaraX, Lemmy, Lamontius, Loratherion, Mark Hoover, Mikaze, Orthos, Peter Stewart, RavingDork, Ross Byers, Rynjin, Scavion, Sean K. Reynolds, Streamofthesky, Soulgambit, TarkXT, TheNPC, tinkergoth, Tels, Treantmonk, TOZ (aka TriOmegaZero, et. al.), and many more.

I'll be honest: a lot of the people I wrote here, I only remembered to add because others in this thread already mentioned them. Copy/paste is my friend. Also, I suck at names. Like, a lot. I've got something akin to four or five people whose names I'm currently trying to remember to put down properly, and can't come up with them (proper first names are not, in the end, good indicators of who I'm talking about, for instance, and spelling some of your handles is... uh, well, without looking at them, Dyslexia+ADD will ensure no one knows who I'm talking about**, like Aelrith/Aelrinths/Aelrynsth/that guy who always signs his name/Aerys Gainsborrough). Plus there are those I'm not currently thinking of that I know I'm going to be kicking myself over shortly.

And I've got more people I'd add, but haven't seen 'round here for a long time.

Alas, poor KaeYoss, I lament the lack of derailing threads together.

No, I don't always agree with you guys: in fact, it's fairly regular that I disagree with most of you at some point. Some of you I almost never agree with. I wouldn't trade any of you for another poster, though: please hang around, despite my vehement, repeated, and strong disagreements. I love these forums and the community 'round here. Including you. (Probably.) You rock. (Unless your specific cultural or ethical outlook makes you dislike that turn of phrase, in which case, uh, "I think you are a nifty person that I probably like" instead.) :D

* You know, at some point people are going to think I actually talk like that. Also, Attention Deficit sucks. It didn't used to suck. Now that I'm old, it sucks.
** Pretty sure I misspelled something up there. Sorry, guys.

EDIT: added two EDIT: added one of 'em that showed up, here, and fixed the spelling of a name... who had already posted in this thread. Mercy: I do suck at remembering names after all. At least it's not Rogue or Rouge or whatever the heck is the class or color or whatever. Sorry Claxon. EDIT: more, MORE!

I would also like to add that despite disagreeing with well respected posters on here from time to time, sometimes very fervently and with myself being jerk at time (because I tend to get carried away with arguments) that despite that I respect you after the argument has closed and my temper wanes.

As they say, Anger is temporary madness.

I often find myself going into threads that I've seen TOZ and Jiggy posting in.

I don't know if that's because they're favorites or they just post way too friggin much.

I... am sorry to hear that. Is that... what happened with 3.5Loyalist (though I think he regenerated reincarnated came back as DM_Under_the_Bridge?) and shallowsoul as well? What of Professor Cirenos (I admit: it's been long enough that I don't know how to spell his name anymore, I'm afraid.) If so, that's kind of a shame.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Streamofthesky, BigNorseWolf, Jiggy, Blackbloodtroll, Kazumetsa (though I haven't seen him much these days), Ravingdork, Gorbacz, James Risner, Ohako a couple of times. Probably more to list, I'll add some if I think of more.

I know we don't agree all the time (especially on the subject of monk levels for a druid build :P), but I respect your opinion (really, I respect others opinion too, but these are the folks I interact with the most).

prototype00

Edit: Imbicatus, 666bender (your replies are almost haiku!), Rynjin, Tels (how could I forget!), williamoak, Rynjin, Abraham Spalding (I'm just stealing from you now, Tacticslion! :) )

TOZ I am familiar with, but haven't interacted with very much, our system mastery interests must not coincide much. Nice to finally make your acquaintance in this thread, though.

I suspect me and Mikaze are also travelling in different thread spheres as I'm pretty sure I've never interacted with that poster.


Oh! Hey!

Odraude, Tangent101, Matt Thompson, captain yesterday...

EDIT: prototype00! I don't oft interact with you, but I due recall you. Nice guy. Also: steal away! I love thievery (of this sort)! It's like Christmas!

Also, interact with Mikaze, if you get the chance. Excellent person. Passionate. Feel-good. All about the Good, actually. :D

You know, I've been reading "tacticslion" for months and my mind has been seperating that word as tactic-slion, which made no sence but I thought, It's the Internet. Whatever.
Then, about 30 seconds ago, my mind finally saw "tactics-lion". The world makes so much more sence now!

It really is pronounced tactic-slion. Tactics Lion? Whose ever heard of such a silly username.

I flit in and out of the main threads but I find EvilLincoln, TriOmegaZero and Tacticslion are at the top of my list. Many others I like and agree with have been mentioned here and I won't belabor the point.

I would also like to mention Third Mind. I don't run into him much, but when I do he's always helpful.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It'll be a pretty long list if I go through everyone who I think has really shed light on this mind-screwy system for me in the last few months, but I'd like to call attention to the efforts of (in no particular order): Tactic-slion (we made beutiful 'chucks together!), Iorthol who rarely posts anymore but I couldn't have gotten my first homebrew class nearly as well made without him, and Oceanshieldwolf, Excaliburproxy, and Ciaran Barnes for their guidance with all of the other silly crap I've made.

Thanks for all of your help, you guys rule!


Third Mind! I haven't talked at him in a while.

Greeny! You should definitely be on that list! Fun times indeed!

(Oh, also I made a document, but... I haven't posted it.)

My players stay out:
... you may wish to follow the game I'm GMing... I have a feeling that within the next month you will see something very relevant to your interests...

Also, those other guys you mentioned are pretty rad, too! I actually don't know Iorthol, but I've seen the other three be helpful enough often enough.

Also Kazaan, and I'm not just saying that in order to get him to help me eliminate Dexterity. Not just because of that reason. ;D

(Hint, you guys who know rules well, go help me eliminate Dexterity.) :D

TOZ, Mythic TOZ (but not that tri omega zero weirdo), Ashiel, Ciretose, Rynjin, wraithstrike, and the extremely sarcastic person her name escapes me.

I know! I am just as surprised that it's a perma-ban as you are, though, in retrospect, as I noted, I think I'd heard of something similar to 3.5 Loyalist. That's why I was asking about shallowsoul and Professor Cerno okay, I really need to find my old posts and figure out that guy's name.

I'll second everyone mentioned, and add a few names:

Steve Geddes Kirth Gerson (sp?)
Sean K. Reynolds (even though he's been mentioned)
Rynjian (also mentioned)
Ravingdork (also mentioned, I'm a big fan of his character emporium)
James Jacobs
Liz Courts (she not only babysits us to keep flamewars from happening, she also reviews third-party submissions to sell on Paizo.com)
weirdo

I'm sure I'm missing a few names that should be added.

edit: Adding
ChainSawSam
Brom the Obnoxiously Awesome
LazarX
Tomos
lemeres

2nd edit: Adding
Mordo the Spaz (Forum Troll)
and any other avatars I suspect are used by Paizo devs

3rd edit: Adding
Aelryinth- he's been mentioned before, but I think I spelled it correctly (possibly the first to do so)

Okay, now I'm just being dumb. Yes to all of these.


Lets see, totally non exahustive list

- Mikaze (the best mikaze, even if mikaze aoi have more fans)
- Toz because, well, Toz.
- Bob loblaw
- roberta yang

Lamontious was in that list but his lack of rhyming and rapping lately get him out.

EDIT:

- Ross Byers
- Wraithstrike

Don't let them in, don't let them see:
Ciretose apparently got too vociferous in the ACG play test for the Warpriest I think, and was banned. He sent me a farewell email letting me know what happened. I ran a PFS game for him back in December and that was the last I heard from him.
