I don't actually hold all the opinions I express on these forums.


I think the one guy who shows up just when a thread's reached a consensus to say that, say, the paladin should fall, or the halfling is truly the most overpowered race, shows a lot of courage and deserves our respect. In fact, I think all the a+&%**+s who argue stupid points and refuse to drop them deserve respect. I use "a~%&$$~s" in the most affectionate way possible, of course.

Yeah, I'm saying the entire custom of these forums of a dumb paladin debate going on for dozens of pages--if not dozens of threads--is, while annoying, also deserving of some credit. If nothing else, these debates hone our debating skills, make us think about philosophy (or system balance, or what have you) and...

...come to think of it, I'm not so sure I believe this hooey. I'm just gonna second TOZ's remark and quietly move on.


I don't like Pathfinder RPG.

I like Golarion, I don't like the pathfinder adventure paths as a whole, too railroady.

I generally do, but I don't always hold them as strongly as I present them.

that's not good. You should always be yourself. Unless you're in character.

I'm always a character.

What if misrepresenting his opinions IS himself?


Close enough.

I am an actor, and spend so much time hiding behind one role or another, that I'm rarely myself, whoever he/she is.

I'm using the race builder to build a bunch of races that are the same point total, and calling them "balanced enough."

I am hyper critical of sexism and racism in our hobby, and life in general. Also, I get really sick of men who are racial minorities and white women who tell me that issues that apply to one of those two groups are "not really a big deal" or nonexistent or just not as important as their own issue.


The Monk threads in General Discussion have made me never want to play a Monk again. Fo' realz.

I'm ambivalent about Golarion, as I am about most settings. But I've wanted to experience a Paizo AP for a few years now, because they look like great fun. Preferably converted and tweaked to 4e rules and 4e strengths.

Most gamers I've known tend toward the "Everyone jump on the plot-mobile!" attitude, and I myself am not opposed to the railroad...so long as it's a fun ride.

No one minds riding the railroad as long as the train is headed to Awesome Town.


We're in OTD territory now...

I hate all this talk of "roles." I find overly specialized characters boring.

True enough, and Paizo APs have a reputation for being located squarely in Awesome Town. :)

My players can barely stay on-track for one module. I couldn't imagine "forcing" them to run through 6 closely-related modules in a row:O

Well it takes all kinds. We all work with what we've got, amiright?

Nationality on the other hand is partially reliable in that most likely you will support your own nation over mine,

You'd be surprised :)

and that you will be familiar with language and culture of your nation, and likely agree with many if not most things about how that nation is run. If you werent , you wouldnt be living there.

At this particular moment in time, I don't have much of a choice, alas :(

Choices are really the the only thing in which you can judge the "worth" of an individual, but nationality can indicate whether I should trust you with national secrets.

Besides very few people hate people because of where they live (though egocentrism does still have a minor effect) and those that do are far less likely to do anything about it because they are unlikely to ever be in a position to do anything about it (except perhaps online where damage is extremely unlikely to be more then smack talk)

Alas, I wish this were the case. I get to see plenty of hate for people from [insert country here] in addition to those of other races that are nationalized or born here :(

Back to the original topic:

While I try to be all inclusive when I DM/GM, I absolutely cant stand mary sue or "obnoxiously unique" characters. I know, I'm horribly unimaginative and hidebound in this regard. I just cant stand running a game for a half-cat/drow psionic ranger/jedi/mech and his cohorts. While I would totally read that in a comic book, if I'm telling a story I dont want that in it.

<--hypocrite
