I can't stand the Shaman iconic. I think the trans-gendered aspect to it was pandering, and ham-fisted. Easily the worst iconic to date.

It annoys the crap out of me to see players constantly playing the same super optimized characters over and over again.

I hate playing with DMs who feel it necessary to ban everything outside of the CRB, but it seems to be all I find.

Pathfinder Society is a waste of time, and every DM that I've run across during PFS sessions aren't worth a damn.

I dislike the Adventure Paths. I think it's a bit crappy that Adventure Path subscribers are the only ones who get store discounts.

Pathfinder Online is a terrible game, and if it wasn't for the minis I got from the Kickstarter, I'd forever regret buying into it.

I think jaywalking is sometimes okay if there aren't any cars coming.

As a Brit, I find the idea of a law banning jaywalking rather weird.

I don't like dhampirs either, but that's only because I've only ever seen them played as annoying broody Cullens.

I've only had one Dhampir character. She was a daughter of a former chancellor (who had fallen out of favour), and had lived her entire life in a giant spooky manor house, at first with her obsessive and religious mother, then alone after her mother's death.

She was more of a cross between Emily Dickenson and Carrietta White than any Cullen.

I confess ... despite saying earlier I had nothing to confess to ... that I am not a fan of half-elves and half-orcs.

I'm in fact not a fan of any half-anything races. Why don't we have half-dwarves as well? Why don't we have half-elf-and-half-dwarves (dwalves?) or half-orc-and-half-gnomes?

If you can mix humanity into anything, why can't you mix anything into anything else? Is it because we, as humans, are so awesome that we can just be the blank DNA slate that anything can be mixed with? If so, as I said, why no half-dwarves or half-halflings?

I have other problems with half-elves and half-orcs as well, but I'll leave those out because frankly, mentioning them would be invariably be misconstrued as inflammatory.

I fudge dice rolls to save PCs when I feel it serves the story well.

Leaving aside Dark Sun's Muls, I had the theory that requires dwarves retain their pre-3E low fecundity - specifically, human women would not be able to carry a half-dwarf to term purely because of the sheer drain on her physical resources - this, in conjunction with the tendency of female dwarves to by paradox have a better chance of conceiving when under the weather as the naturally high CON of the race makes for an unintended hurdle when it comes to conception. Simply put, female dwarves are likely to reabsorb eggs like a rabbit before implantation could happen.

Half-halflings are effectively undistinguishable from short humans or tall halflings. But that's only in my campaigns, so I should have probably prefaced that in the first place.

I think entirely too much about this sort of thing.

Tieflings are okay. I don't love them, but I don't dislike them, either. There's nothing inherently bad about the race.

I dislike the presence of tieflings without the presence of their natural counterpart - the aasimar.

Yeah...I dislike half-elves and half-orcs. Would much rather just treat half orcs as a different strain of orc, and simply make some sort of trait or feat that a human, orc, or elf can take to make them have some sort of mixed heritage.

I also dislike the elemental plane touched, with the exception of the Undines, which are at least implied to be an established race that can reproduce amongst themselves.

Confessional time.

I have made so many house rules to Pathfinder I might as well be playing a different game. Which is probably why I can't find anyone to stress test it with.

I actually like (with tweaks) the Wounds and Vigor, Armor as DR, Piecemeal Armor, Called Shots, Words of Power, and other sub-systems.

I long for the day when we have a beautifully full figured plump female Iconic.


I confess I routinely forget about Halflings.

Speaking of halflings, any concept art that depicts halflings as wearing shoes annoy me intensely. :Þ

I confess that I am obsessed with tengu. They took over the obsession spot that elves and Tauren used to have for me for some reason.

I made another Halfling :-)

I'm really getting tired of seeing Pathfinder stuff about Cheliax. I just don't find the nation that distinctive—it's Karrnath, but with devils. It's just another decadent empire in decline. It's not bad, but I don't get why we see so much focus on it while genuinely fascinating, really cool and quirky nations like Galt get all but ignored. We're on our, what, fourth Cheliax-connected AP now?

I confess that I find the need to create what seem to be token iconics utterly ridiculous and frustrating, particularly when it moves beyond ethnicities and genders and into body types. Why did we need a fat iconic? Mavaro's going to fall behind and be destroyed the first time the party has to book it (oh if only he was figured in with -10 move speed with no bonus). And here's hoping the child iconic is depicted being butchered somewhere (don't get me wrong, I think Yoon is neat, but I hate the idea that she's going to receive special treatment for being a kid).

I'm still on the fence about Yoon. I'll have to wait and see how they deal with her. If they give her special treatment, I'll agree. If they treat her like one would expect a child to be treated when getting attacked by a horde of starving goblins, I'll have to disagree.

As for fat iconic and movement speed? You'd be surprised at how fast tubby people can sprint. My fiance was over 240 lbs, size 24, and was asked to join her high shcool's track and field team. Only reason she didn't was because of extremely controlling parents who wanted to hide her thanks to their shame about her being bipolar and thus "not normal".

Either way, an unarmored fat guy would still outrun a muscle-headed jock in full plate when getting chased by the dragon... Or the Dwarf.

And is that prejudice I smell with Mavaro's weight in your parenthesis?

I always hated the even female dwarves have beards trope, was that even a thing in Tolkien or just Gimmli giving excuses on why he never got any tail, or maybe that he was gay and just said that because he wasn't comfortable coming out "no, that was totally a chick!" "Why'd it have a beard you ask?" "Um, all dwarf chicks have beards, yeah, that's the ticket!"

It's canon, Tolkien lady dwarves have beards.

http://tolkien.slimy.com/faq/Creatures.html#DwarfBeards

In my opinion if the defining feature of dwarves is their beards, then it only makes sense that all dwarves should have beards regardless of gender.

For example take this quote from the Dwarf Fortress wiki "Dwarves, much like biblical hero Samson, actually gain their strength from their beards." This is of course just DF fandom humor, but it is reflective of the way dwarves are normalized as generically having beards. If only male dwarves have beards then only some dwarves get to benefit from this joke.

Also I'm passionate about bearded women in general. Women look great with beards, it's a fact.

I have never seen a woman look good with a beard :-D

But I'm not here to judge, whatever works for you :-)

I know my wife and daughter prefer their lady dwarves without the beard, the big f!##ing axes stay:-D


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I will take that statement as akin to saying "I have never seen a man look good with a beard" ;)

But yeah women with enormous axes are awesome. I have a character (in my fiction, not pathfinder), who is 6 feet tall, built like an army tank and wields a blacksmith's sledge hammer as her weapon. She also wrestles people with her bare arms.

And later on in the story she grows a beard, just cus she got tired of shaving, and really liked the look so she decided to keep it.

She is one of the heroes of the story and a favorite among friends who follow the development of my work <3

Let me put it betterer then I did, I'm attracted to women without beards, transgenderism or cross dressing has nothing to do with it :-)

If a guy wants to rock a beard, dress and heels, more power to them, I won't judge or laugh or anything else insulting that stupid people do:-)

Same if a woman wants to rock a beard, also lots of hormone issues can be at play, I know I'm lazy about shaving :-)

I'm a firm believer in Human Rights, for all humans, just wanted to make sure that was clear, it's hard to do long posts with my phone that don't sound dyslexic, maybe it's my dyslexia...:-)


Same, I am allergic to razors. :Þ

Speaking of, antagonizing people who think that bearded women, intersex people, trans people, effeminacy, etc are gross is one of my favorite things c:<

There's this one beard group on facebook I go to where I occasionally post pictures of gorgeous women and effeminate people with beards and act nothing but happy about it, and watch the low key homophobia fly. I just respond with more happy and loving things to say about bearded people and that makes them even more angry.

Also hi five, learning disability pride!

I fudge PCs when I think that they aren't eating enough candy during the game.


I'm perpetually divided between whether I want to fudge dice if the rolls go badly for my pc's and simply being brutal to my pcs when the wyrd calls for it.

I made a Bard, once.

He was gonna be a Rogue but then we had a Ninja and a Scorched Earth Witch, so I made him an Archaeologist, turns out theirs a s~$@load of synergy between Halflings and Archaeology, because he was awesomeness incarnate :-)

Now I want fudge!


Another confession: I actually find playing pathfinder against myself to be kind of fun.

It feels both like writing a story with dice, and like playing a computer rpg using your own brain as a CPU.

also great for learning how to avoid metagaming and familiarizing yourself with modules and rules.

What a great picture I love it.

I usually intend to play a beard. Ironically my only male pathfinder character thus far does not have a beard as he is a halfling. My women and nonbinary characters tend to have some level of facial hair.

My confession:

I like the "bikini armour" style of fantasy female character art because I wish I was pretty and comfortable/confident enough with my body to be able to dress like that, sometimes.

Even still, Rob Liefeld needs to go away.

I agree- as long as there's plenty of beefcake served with that cheesecake. Fair is fair.

But I had no idea who the heck Rob L was until I looked him up.

I like ridiculous stuff like the suits in Kill la Kill (the anime is seriously not safe for work so be careful if you google) cus i'd totally wear that, hair and all. I actually drew my own characters in the suits at some point, including Bēowulf, and the powerhouse bearded lady with a hammer I described earlier. And naturally they look fantastic.

I like when in games that have bikini armor, it is bikini armor on both the women and the men characters. That is the way it should be.

Also Rob Liefeld is my inspiration. Every time I think my art is bad, I just remember that Rob Liefeld is a very successful marvel artist who makes millions, and think about how I deserve his job, his paycheck and his conan sword.

Ooh, I have something confession-y. I started playing RPGs with D&D 4e and I still have a fondness for that system.

I played in a 4E campaign, and I kinda liked it. Mind you, the fact that the DM had a full subscription so we could do our PC's on the system and it would print out those cool multi-colored character sheets, with all the spells, etc details, made it nicer. Good DM too.

This sorta goes to show my axiom is that it's not the system- it's the DM and your co-players that make the game fun.

I even had a little fun trying Chivalry & Sorcery.

I guess I am too easy......

I have a Dwarf and Halfling problem, I've been trying to make characters other then dwarves and halflings since I got pathfinder, and yet here I am, another Halfling, my last character is a Dwarven Oracle for Pete's sake! If that doesn't call for an intervention what will :-)

I don't care for most anime. It just doesn't appeal for some reason.


As do I,

I work very hard to cultivate an air of mystery :-)
