Are there actually scenarios in the Mana Wastes? Because to quote Liz Lemon, "I want to go to there."

GM: Alright, you'll be fighting demons, which means they're immune to electricity and--

Player 1: Crap, guess I'm going to be useless.

Player 2: Same here. My only damaging spell is Shocking grasp.

GM: ... They're also immune to poison, which--

Player 3: Well dang, nothing I can do either. This build is dedicated to poison.

GM: Glances at Player 4 Looks like combats are up to you...

Player 4: Yeah, I don't really do combat. I made this character because I really think a gnome monk has so much roleplaying potential.

Everyone has their hands folded and the gm says "Listen, we need to talk about where goblins come from."

Your players are a bard, a kitsune, and a player who will go stark raving mad if they hear one more line from "what does the fox say"

Didn't one of those get a job as head of security in a mansion somewhere? I seem to recall completely ignoring him while he beat his fists against my armor like a crying child round after round.

"What's wrong with Gnomish Monks?"

I do have this problem where I'm a monk who's highest ability score is charisma, but I'm so much fun to play!

I have minis from the late '70s. What's the problem?

yeah... and some of us were gaming in the early '70s (me)... but then I have several players who were born this century too. One game even had 3 players less than 14...

Wonderful thing about gaming... bringing lots of diverse people together... not sure if I would count that as "trouble".

I think it's cool when I meet a player who even has dice not just minis older than me.

It's only trouble when they are acting like teenage brats and trying to disrupt the game. I've played with one of these kids before.

Or you have older players that treat them like kids even when they are not acting like one.

Yeah, I sneak-attack-critted him with my sap. Something about 6d6 of non-lethal damage did not make his day. And then, when he woke up, he accidently got sapped again. Don't hesitate when we're interrogating!

heck, I've played with one of those ADULTS before...(come to think of it, I might have BEEN one of those adults before...)

Acting like a "Brat" has only a little to do with the actual age of the player...

Yestorday in a game, we had a 9 year old brake the table up when during the VC briefing, when the VC was explaining that the PF Society doesn't PAY the PCs, the 9 year old brakes in with the In Character statement that she's "just in the for the money!"

yes! great things we are teaching the youth of today!

(really, it was a great scene...)

Got this covered in one - I have a kitsune bard and am already stark raving mad. Last game I played him in we had another kitsune (sorcerer) for 2x the memelols.

Everyone character has a stella AC, but the damage dealing potential of a comatose snotling and you have a hard time limit.

The main bad guy is using an x4 crit weapon, and has three minions with high crit range weapons, and Butterfly's Sting...
But luckily none of the minions can use butterfly's sting because none of them worship Desna.
I beg to differ

I started laughing out loud, but when asked why I lacked the ability to articulate it.

Its a first level scenario and everyone in the party can fly - except you.

Give them clubs. Free, and everyone can use one.

The players have forgone clothes because pathfinder doesn't allow one free set of clothing with regards to weight.

What? No Kender love?

I loved playing my Kender, with the amulet that made his head look like a lions head and the dagger that talked to him. I also had a moment when I used an item to dimension door a poor enemy 300 feet in the air, and was curious so I stuck my head through to watch....

Instead of pathfinder books, the five other PCs bring their statistics books and insist on calculating the Expected Value for every one of your rolls.

I may not be good at math but if any of my fellow players did that they'd be calculating the expected value of a Core Rulebook to the face.

To be fair, he did say the other PCs, not the players - I do find the idea of a barbarian wading into the dungeon supported by five statisticians/accountants moderately entertaining ;-)

...and two people are already on their phones arguing with a spouse/sig. other about 'how long this is going to take.'

...and a third is on the phone trying to track down where their kid went after skipping out on chores and ignoring the 'you're grounded, and no phone' rule.

...and a fourth is actively trying to pry their kid off their arm and convince them to go watch TV in the next room. And promises that the kid won't be interrupting you more often than every five minutes.

...and the fifth player, who spends most of his life glued to the phone either texting or browsing for 'hilarious' videos, announces that he's expecting an important call and will have to answer every ring, beep, and chirp that day.

Heck, I'm toying with the idea of making a Chelish accountant for PFS.

From the original blue and pink boxed sets, I have some dice that I just can't use anymore. The edges and corners are just worn down to the point that the d10, d12, and d20 just don't really stop rolling.

I still save them for when someone starts to go on about how long they've been playing the game.
