You are far from alone in this.

What makes me seethe is when I wait at an intersection to make a left turn, and then the jerk approaching my left flank hangs a right into my road.

Thanks a&~*!~%, I hope that calorie you saved not flipping your turn signal saved someone's life.

The food. I cannot stand fudge chocolate, brownies, etc. It just tastes disgusting to me.

And people look at me funny when I tell them "Give me a fruity flavor, I'm not a chocolate person"...

(I don't hate chocolate, it's just at the bottom of my list of Sugary Flavors and Foods I Want to Eat.)


Thought of a foodie confession!

I like tofu. Not plain though, that's the mistake that many Americans make. Tofu is like rice -- it's a basic bland flavor, not meant to be eaten plain. You've got to season it, stir fry it, mix it with complementary foods. If you treat it roughly like rice, it's good stuff!

I believe in things making sense, and in GM's following decisions to logical consequences.

I believe Paladins should strive to be paragons, and temptation is not a trap.

And most of all I believe bad GM's and bad players find each other, because none of the rest of us are putting up with that crap.

I'm on board with these

This. Didn't learn until I dated a vegetarian in college and got to have some properly prepared and seasoned. Now it is a go to item if I'm in a decent restaurant.

I have a PFS PC who is a dwarf cleric with Cha 10, no Selective Channeling and no ranks in Diplomacy (level 6).

^ I took Channel Smite for above PC.

^ I took Alignment Channel for above PC.

^ I'm going to keep playing above PC.

(Hey, it was my first PF PC, sheesh.)

I still love tofu from my brief time as a vegan.


I actually enjoyed watching The Last Airbender.

I also enjoy Uwe Boll movies.

This won't just get you shunned by the Paizo community, it'll also get you shunned by people with taste, AND ESPECIALLY people who enjoyed the source material that was butchered by hack writers and directors.

Blech.

Oh I love Avatar, I'm a huge fan of it. The difference, I think, between myself and most others, is I already knew the movie would be god awful and in no way would it do the series justice. So, because of that, I was able to divorce myself from the film and just enjoy it.

I am fully aware that the movie sucks in every way, but I still enjoy watching it.

I don't like playing RPGs with strangers or in organized play settings. In fact I don't much like going to any place that is full of geeks, nerds or any combination thereof. When collected in groups geeks often generate a most pungent odor. Furthermore I don't want to hear about your character, the broken combo or l33t tech you put together.

A little self-awareness and willingness to participate in the society everyone else is a part of would go a long way. This means, bathe regularly, dress well and cultivate interests beyond your fandoms and obsessions.

Until I can see a majority of geeks doing that, I'm going to stay well clear of organized play.

Meister, I have a bunch of mostly unconnected hobbies ranging from stargazing to hunting with a bunch of types of fishing, photography and guitar playing along the way. That means I tend to find myself in the midst of people of a wide range of interests in situations where they are indulging their interests.

So, there's the fishing trip with the guy who is just STOKED about his custom-made fly rod and the custom fly he designed JUST for this STRETCH of river. Not the WHOLE river, mind you, but just this STRETCH. After a couple hours in the extended cab pickup, you pick up on the fact that lots of fishermen have a rather noticeable odor.

Or the stargazing party where my hand-made telescope is getting manhandled by the guy who just can't understand WHY anyone would use anything but a Ritchey-Chretian or (worse) the six-inch apochromatic zealot. Again, after a couple of hours standing around the 36" truss dobsonian, you notice that the conversation has gotten just about as stale as the atmosphere.

But there's nothing quite like the guy who still has the blood of his last kill all over his camo, and a bit of gore on his boots, lovingly caressing his custom-stock .222 with the $1,500 scope that weighs as much as your whole rifle.

The idea that gaming is unique in the hobby community for "creepy", "smelly", "obsessive" or "compulsive" behavior is something I find quite hilarious.

The most annoying person I ever encountered was the guy who made his own beer. It was the BEST beer ever made. And he would tell you EXACTLY how he made it. Over and over and over again.

I have pretty much the same attitude about several reviled-by-hardcore-fans films. The Star Wars prequels, the Matrix sequels, the Hobbit...they're all enjoyable movies. They're just about different things than what came before. (Usually 'special effects' plays a significant role in what the new films are about, and that's okay.)

I enjoyed the Twilight movies.

And I wrote some (well-received) fanfic for them.

Confessions, hmmm.

1)I do not want trans characters in Golarion.

2) Don't alter or emphasise new directions to be political, or side with an interest group. Keep the game fun, but detached from identity movements of our world. Or the setting will have to follow the whims of fancy. :)

3) All of the solutions for the monk problems, can be found in 3.5 material. Truly, it has already been solved guys, do some research and make some changes, add more feats, edit the class if need be.

4) Your character's obscenely high modifier or stat array, does not make you cool.

Cheers all.

I enjoy a lot of bad movies too.

The issue I have is that if you're adapting from source material that's GOOD, there's no EXCUSE for your movie to be bad.

A more serious confession of the day, I think holding onto legacies can hurt the game more than help it and that 'I was here first!' or 'I've been playing since 37' attitudes remind me of old men waving their cane around.

Well, YMMV on whether or not any of the Star Wars films really count as "GOOD". I think the first were decent bordering on good, but Return of the Jedi and the prequels are crap.

I think that rogues are easily capable of out DPSing fighters/barbs/paladins/rangers, and enjoy building my rogues to do so.

I like the fact that monks, barbarians, paladins, and cleric/inquisitors have alignment restrictions for flavor.

I think that SR is a buff as opposed to a nerf.

While I agree in average everyday setting, if you're at Paizo-con, then if the main topic of conversation is Pathfinder, I don't think that's odd at all.

And it's not really a geek-only thing, either. I know quite a few guys who's small talk skills begin and end with sports, and any attempt to change to ANY other topic will get a blank look out of them, and then they will start talking about sports again as if you never mentioned anything else. And they're generally considered fully-functioning members of society...more so than "nerds" who DO have the ability to speak on subjects outside of their immediate area of interest.

That's pretty much me with the Resident Evil movies. It's the fact that the GAMES have turned to crap that kinda pisses me off. Although I don't really care much anymore, if two sequels in a row aren't worthy of the franchise title, I pretty much just focus on the older stuff that is worthy. So after RE4 and RE5, my Resident Evil world only consists of RE1 through Code Veronica (plus the REmake and Zero).


I can see the complaints at 5 (even though I enjoyed it), but what was wrong with 4?

I thought it was the perfect balance between the puzzle-y, survival horror-y goodness (even though I hated them) of 1-3, and had enough action to make it actually fun.

Not exactly swordsage, but there are a lot of feats, even down to shooting touch attack energy balls with stunning fist uses. For class variants and prestige classes there are the two types of drunken masters, and in a new book I reviewed there was a pretty cool war monk variant as well (bonus to hit and damage for those crying for more monk combat crunch). That is more recent, but there is so much back a bit, a friend even broke out some 3.0 material, that can solve all concerns related to the monk.

I've actually written an entire essay on while I think that it not only fails as survival horror, but also it fails at being a Resident Evil as well.

The much abridged version goes like this:

1. RE1-CVX set up Umbrella and Spencer as the ultimate BBEG of the franchise. So we find out in the first 30 seconds of RE4 that they've been defeated not by the former STARS member, but by Wall Street.

2. It fails as survival horror for a couple of reasons: there is no element of the unknown (behind EVERY DOOR you're going to find some Los Plagas trying to kill you) and the best way to get more ammo for your weapons it to use what you have to shoot up bad guys.

3. The plot is just g+!$~$n ridiculous. I've summarized thusly:

We have the supervillain team of Dracula, Napoleon, Rambo, Bin Laden, and the Alien-Predator hybrid involved in a scheme to kidnap the President's daughter and infest her with telepathic parasites that make your head explode when you are shot in the big toe. They are opposed by Leon "Solid Snake" Kennedy, who has codec support from Ingrid "I'm not Meryl!" Hunnigan and a Spanish guy who gets impaled by Dracula's penis approximately midway through the game. Dracula's plan is to infect the chimpanzee-human hybrid that is the President's daughter with the parasites so that they can send her home to infest the President himself. They successfully infest her. One would think they would then simply let Leon save her, simplifying the process and making her reappearance less suspicious. But no. Dracula's minions apparently think the best way to deal with Ashley and Leon is to kill them. Despite the fact that this completely invalidates Dracula's plan. Some of Dracula's minions are cave trolls that he has imported from Middle-Earth...they must be the ones doing the planning that doesn't come directly from Dracula. So anyhow, Leon goes to a village, which is pretty fun. Then he goes to a castle, which gets kinda boring. Finally he goes to an island, which sucks. Also, Dracula turns into a giant spider and then dies.

Oh I know there were a few, was cracking a joke that it wasn't that uncommon to hear "Play a swordsage!" as advice on how to play a monk. Tashalatora(spelling?) and being a psychic warrior was another gig for instance. It was easier to just play another class that got the monk's skills and more than actually roll up a monk, and far less gymnastics. Personally I think monk still has issues, they're just less noticeable, but that's a story for another day.

I read up to God Emperor of Dune and then kind of lost interest. After a while I just really didn't care what happened.

One of the best things about Lord of the Rings is that Tolkien wrote a story with a beginning, middle and END.

The Dune trilogy is amazing. God Emperor of Dune was worth reading, but the rest were pretty much job security for the whole Herbert clan...

Don't even get me started on Robert Jordan...

Back on topic...

I love that wizards are awesome cosmic-reality altering god-like beings while fighters swing pointy sticks.

This whole thread is a guide on how to start Paizo message board arguments!
Here's my list. Any of which I guarantee would start at least a 50 post argument.


  • There is nothing wrong with leadership. It is not the best feat in the game. If your GM thinks Leadership is broken, its because they don't know how to GM properly.
  • All the classes are approximately equal in power level. Wizards/Druids/Clerics/Summoners are not overpowered. Fighters/Rogues are not underpowered. If you have anecdotes that show one is superior to the other it's because of a crafty player and an unskilled GM.
  • Paladins should act like knights in shining armor.
  • Evil characters suck. PCs should be heroes, not villains.

Some more confessions/ranting/venting.

While I firmly stand by the idea that in RPG there is no wrongbadfun play style, I also won't budge from the line that there is wrongbadfun playing RPGs at my table.
I'm the DM, I'm willing to listen to players' ideas, concepts and desires, but I won't ever derail a campaign or turn a setting upside down just because you want to play a good aligned drow gunslinger with a catfolk ninja companion in a Taldor courtroom intrigue game. Sorry.

I always use the "hide" function whenever I see a "Sell me on this archetype/class/feat/spell/adventure/AP" thread.
Asking for information is mighty fine. Asking for decisions on your behalf makes me shudder.

I fudge dice rolls until the characters are at least 3rd level (unless the players do something exceedingly stupid), but afterwards the gloves are off.

I have brought back the original 3.0 skill list.

I'm sorry to hear that. Re4 was the only one I could stomach, as the action kept moving fast enough (interesting as I prefer silent hill usually). Playing 5 now with no regrets.

My "confessions" are actually pretty common knowledge; I make no bones about saying what's on my mind regarding gaming.

But, I will say that the fact that I have not been "shunned" is a shining example of why I frequent the Paizo forums; sure, you may get some debate/arguments of varying opinion here and there, but I have never felt "unwlecome" here. Despite my misgivings and jaded gaming perspective, I still feel comfortable posting here. So, let's get to it.

1.) I only play PFRPG because my group switched to it, while I was taking a short break. I'd drop it and go back to 3.5e in a heartbeat.

2.) I really dislike the Golarion setting, and it's Goblins in particular. The "kitchen sink" atmosphere feels forced and generic, way too cramped and claustrophobic. Although, admittedly, my dislike for Goblins likely came from the way a past DM handled his ensemble of Goblin PC's, NPC's, and multiple DMPC's. Took a mildly irritating aspect, and magnified it a thousand fold...

Coincidentally, since Golarion is the only real setting that PF's rulebooks apply to, this is the only setting my group plays in anymore. We used to play in every available setting we could get our hands on(FR, Ravenloft, Dragonlance, Scarred Lands, Greyhawk, lots of planescaping to Sigil, Acheron, etc).

Now, every game takes place in the same "yard." Boring. Not Paizo's fault(eggs/basket and all, pertaining to running a setting), but the conversion rules are enough of a headache that no DM in my group wants to bother with any other setting anymore; they don't love Golarion that much, they just don't want the added work. The other DM's tend to just do AP's anymore anyway, which all take place in Golarion. Dem's da breaks.

3.) My opinion is that PF is nothing more than a 3pp/houserule set for 3.5e. That's how my brain sees it, and because of that, I don't take the rules changes too seriously, or really commit them to memory. I DM my PF games as is I were running 3.5, and ad-lib/convert rules changes on the fly, aside from the obvious ones(class feature changes, race stats, etc).

4.) I've tried like crazy, but I just can't make the full conversion to PF rules. I've been trying since 2009, and it just won't "take." I use just enough PF rules to keep the game flowing. That's it.

I've played and enjoyed RE1-5 immensely. RE6 was ok, but I only had it on loan and never finished it. Nice and dark, but a little too actiony to ever get any real sense of dread.

We should be able to choose our own race, choose our own gender, choose our own stats.

Race: I'll choose...human.

Gender: I'll choose...male.

Stats: I'll choose...four 18s, one 17 and one 14 (as a dump stat).

YMMV. I greatly prefer rolled stats. Point-buy feels like generic cookie-cutter as heck. Rolled stats gives me the best of both worlds; I choose my race and gender, but the randomized stats gives me that extra bit of uniqueness.

Now, how the stats get rolled is a whole different bag. Some groups just do 4d6, drop the lowest, do this 6 times. Our current DM has us do the "Dice Pool" method(start with x total dice, choose how any you roll for each stat) and it's made for some wildly varying stats. My last Ranger had a 12 STR, and a 18 CHA...
