Both of those do sound awesome.

Alas, I wish I had the same experiences with both 4E and 4E Forgotten Realms.

But at least my disillusionment led me to Pathfinder and Paizo.

For that alone it has my sincerest thank you.

Well, I think we all liked the Sovereignity one, we just never got to the actual part where they, you know, faced the Sovereignity (it was a part of two or three different PC backstories, with a fourth partially related, sort of, a fifth kind of just there for the fun, and the last having something to do with running from the Shadovar). It just fizzled due to time during the invasion from the Far Realm entities.

The Imaskari one ended up pretty awesome with dragon-woman kind of accidentally having a ton of "fetches" that were effectively awakened into being akin to avatars before she was "really" a deity*. Since she could shape-shift, so could they. As it turns out, literally being in a hundred different places at once** is exceptionally useful for spying and intrigue and such.

Primordial guy ended up become a master of the various elemental motes plaguing the region (considering he effectively was one). That, combined with Trey's/Thor's rather impressive ability with a hammer (again, something that was established from the start) ended up making for a dynamic and strong system that allowed them knowledge, material wealth, and phenomenal cosmic (smiting) power.

Asterisks:
* She was technically already a Chosen of that ex-fiend Chosen of Basha I mentioned before - he was, himself, a godlet by holding onto the portfolio of Shaundakul while that god was missing. Incidentally, being his Chosen didn't really do much for her, except attract a metric ton of trouble and the occasional ally. She was supremely excited.

** A very peculiar and exceedingly specific curse-cum-blessing that had plagued her and was well-established earlier in the game, originally used to explain an in-character event and part of the set-up for her backstory - eventually came back to bite me, as GM (which, frankly, is awesome). Short version: any attempt to replicate her would be wildly, but uncontrollably successful to an impossible degree, and the local materials would then automatically be consumed to continue replicating her. The explanation for "why" and "how" is very long, but the short version is that she was being hunted, and this was one of the methods used to track her; this exact thing was later boosted further in a powerful ritual by the godlet who'd Chosen her, as a method of ensuring her fame and distracting his opponents (he was a trickster). As it had actually come up at least twice in the campaign - once when she visited Trey's people and he'd tried to sculpt a likeness of her for reasons, and once when she was copied by an artist passing through town - and the subject of intense research on the PCs part, it was well known. Thus, when I began to use Imaskari magic to create fetch replicas*** of the PCs, and I mentioned this to them, they immediately got a horrified look on their face and demanded to know where and how and, most importantly, who was having replicas made. I, as GM, had kind of forgotten and, one random die roll later, it Ennajen (dragon lady^). Hilarity - by which I mean, "ow, my GM's brain" - ensued. One-hundred sentient likenesses later...

*** I wholeheartedly deny that Bill Willingham's Fables had any influence whatsoever on that campaign. I mean, it's a lie, but that's what I'm claiming. ;D

^ "Dragon lady" in the sense that she's a lady who is secretly a dragon, not "dragon lady" in the sense that she's some sort of seductive schemer. In fact, for most of the campaign (up until Imaskari politics forced her to change, actually) she was a pretty straightforward and straight-laced hero-archetype as a Swordsage. She was always a hero - she just took more nuanced and political track sometimes.

The games sound lots of fun, over-all, except for the evil one... but, uh, the Hellfire Wyrm could have been a cool non-backstabbing kind of evil dude~!

(It's MM2, but the way. Technically still a 3rd edition product, but compatible with 3.5, and with free online errata. I may or may not have a problem. >.>)

Your decision making process sounds similar to my wife!
("If it's ugly, no thanks - I'd rather not." and similar expressions limit what kind of creatures she'll play. Though, technically, certain shapeshifters make it, even if the base form isn't ideal, and a few pass based on "coolness" - though that one's rare.)

Anyway, as I was intending to note: if there's a secret to luring (or turning away) the Trick-or-treat'ers, I never really learned it, either. It seems moderately random - this year we got six that we know of.

That Amiri costume sounds amazing though... and it would be right around the time Starfinder is released... hmmmmmmmm... ;D

Sooooooo, speaking ooooooffffffffff... Starfinder: super hype, not your cuppa, or somewhere in between?

Also related: Farscape?
Similarly: Star Gate?

(Obviously you like Star Wars - or did as a wee lad.)

Backstory wan't an issue, but the ultra high level (it was a game using the Epic Level Handbook) and the evil parts of it were not my cup of tea. The picture of the Hellfire Wyrm was super cool though!

In almost any game I play I make a lot of my decisions based on things I think look cool. For instance, I have an almost complete collection of the older Wizards of the Coast Star Wars miniatures. A couple of my friends played the miniatures game with me. They would figure out squad synergies and all that. I picked out my favorite miniatures and made a squad out of them. I lost a lot. In a 4e game I played a class called Warden because I really liked the picture for it (it turned out to be a really cool class, so that worked out). It's the way I make a lot of decisions...

Back home as long as you had your porch light on trick or treaters would come by. I made sure mine was on last year but no one showed up anyway. So there must be something folks do here that is different.

I am really looking forward to Starfinder (speaking of that costume idea I do have a picture of X-Wing pilot Amiri that Liz drew for me last Christmas!)!

I continue to be a huge Star Wars and Star Trek fan (I went to the all day long marathon of 7 movies for The Force Awakens release last year and plan to be at Rogue One on release night this year). I did really enjoy Farscape. I didn't watch all of Stargate as Netflix dropped it when I was partway through the series. That was a few years ago and I should see if it is back. I enjoyed what I saw though.

Top three favorite things the Spellplague took away?

Thanks!

The Moonshaes (the first realms books I read outside of the Drizzt stuff was Darkwalker on Moonshae and I loooooved it), The Silver Marches (this is the region I want to import into Golarion), Waterdeep.

The church of Eilistraee, the Silver Marches (technically an organization since it is a coalition of peoples!),

For bad ones I think the pretty standard ones since I don't usually think of evil organizations in terms of what their views are and whether those are valid or not, just that they hurt people and are ok with that. So the Zhents, The Red Wizards, and the Cult of the Dragon.

Laqueel from the Threat from the Deep series. I really liked her for some reason. Zulkir Maligor from Red Magic, and Danifae from the War of the Spider-Queen.

Kehrsyn from The Alabaster Staff, The Fox At Twilight, and Erevis Cale.

The Alabaster Staff, Depths of Madness, Darkwalker on Moonshae.

Eilistraee, Bladesingers, and the Silver Marches.

I think these last 2 questions are in many ways the same things because I am mostly ok with most of the additions, but annoyed they took away things. For instance, I think Returned Abeir is fine (though I dislike the while lore thing behind it) but got annoyed that it replaced Maztica. Maztica was a bit problematic, but that could be fixed. It should have been something they took the time to revisit and flesh out and make better rather than kicking it out. I don't have any issues with Dragonborn, but again there were plenty of races that fit that role and I would rather they have made those the Realms versions of Dragonborn (give them Dragonborn player stats and say this is what Dragonborn in the Realms look like and this is what they are culturally) instead of adding a whole new redundant race. That sort of thing.

I am only a little bit familiar with the FaWtL thread, and I don't know what the rules for it are. So maybe? I think the rules for this thread are mostly, 'be cool to each other' and that's pretty much it.

FaWtL rules!
1. No sports (unless it's soccer, which no one understands anyway "net!?! What the hell is a net!?!")
2. No politics.
3. Anyone posting on the top of the page is assumed to be naked.

Ah, thank you.

I have no problem with sports. The only one I really follow though is football, so I may not have a lot to say about any others.

Politics discussions I avoid discussing on my various social media things and I am a bit weary about anything I say being interpreted as Paizos views. I have always believed that while I am on the clock I do not have any religious or political affiliations. Given that this thread is not an 'on the clock' sort of thing I may or may not answer questions involving politics and if I do I will likely do so as my alias, without the golem next to my name.

If I post during Paizo business hours I am likely not naked even if I am the top post.

So!

If you got the chance to play any character in an FR-based game, what type of campaign, and what type of character would you want to play?

Unrelated: if you were to attempt to build an FFT PnP RPG, what kind of system would you use? Chrono Trigger?

Paizo Employee Customer Service Representative

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Gah, I missed this post. Sorry about that.

I would really like to play a 'Once around the Realms' type of game. More about going out and seeing the world than fighting some big bad and their minions. There would still need to be some sort of conflicts of course, but those would be smaller scale local stuff as the group visits an area.

Type of character is a little more difficult. I think for a campaign like that I would lay a Bard. I tend to default to Swashbuckler or Rogue so those would be options too. This would be a bright eyed person excited to go out and see the world (basically a proxy for me)!

I think if I were going to try to build a tabletop of either of those games I would try to adapt their existing systems for tabletop play. I think FFT would work well on tabletop once you figure out how to handle the math. It is already turn based and uses a grid. I'm not much of a designer though, the things I build for my party in my home game tend to be probably a little more powerful than they should be and when the players ask me how much the item is worth and what + the weapon is equivalent to they just get blank stares from me.

And you forget, until you're finally stuck in the bathroom while your son goes potty and you have access to wifi so you can type out a suspiciously specific question?

Did you know that Moana is an amazing film and now I really want to make a game blending it and Wind Waker?

Because daggum, I reeeeeaaaallllly want to do that.

(It's a really fun film, and I couldn't stop trying to "Pathfinderize" it while watching, though ultimately, I came to the conclusion that the Blue Rose system - with alignment modifications - would be a better one to run a game like that on, though I'd borrow PF's mythic stuff, too...)

Also: my wife and I got to go on a double date with my newly wed Brother-in-law and his wife! :D

Hey!

Did you have a good Thanksgiving?

Also, two questions from my Eldest:

- 1) "Where do you hot dogs?!"

... and ...

- 2) "What do you socks?!"

(Insert tittering giggles here.)

((Those - or variants thereof - are his two favorite questions lately. He never eats hot dogs - "I don't like eatin' them, I jus' like sayin' them." - and has no particular affinity towards or animosity with or any other strong emotion concerning socks. This is, he assures you, the absolute peak of kindergarten intellectual humor...))

Finally, from Daddy again:
- Zaxby's or Chic-fil-A or Lee's Famous Chicken or KFC or somewhere else (please provide a name), and why?
- Sonny's, Southern Pig and Cattle, Kay's*, Black Bear, the GA Pig*, or something else (please provide a name)?, and why? What "kind" do you prefer: North Carolina, South Carolina, East Texas, Central Texas, Kansas City, Alabama, Memphis, or something else?
- any favorite pizza kind?

Enjoy!

* If you know of this at all, I am certain it is an entirely different resteraunt than the one I'm talking about; I'm mostly just throwing this in because I'm struggling to come up with places. :)

I went and saw Moana this weekend, so I DO know that! I really enjoyed it! I didn't really think of it in game terms (I rarely do) but that does sound like a fun concept for a game!

That double date sounds great! Is that when you saw the movie?

I had a great Thanksgiving, thank you! My parents came to Washington so I got to spend all weekend with them. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving too!

I used to hot dogs at a place called Urban Dog. These days it is at the Costco that opened right next to us a week or so ago.

I socks generic white socks. Nothing special about them.

Kids are amused by very weird things. My nieces and nephews will crack up about the strangest stuff.

KFC I think. I don't really have a chicken place. Chic-fil-A is very tasty but I have intentionally not gone for many years. I like the mashed potatoes and gravy at KFC a lot.

I don't know what any of the places on this list are. I think you are asking about BBQ though? Rudy's is pretty much the best.

The very best pizza is Dion's.

None of those places are here in Washington though.

This is amazing and my son didn't know how to respond for a while. He was very happy.

However, eventually, he decided to ask,

"What do you Ucho*?"

and

"What do you Ocho*?"

* These are both made-up words in his home-made language. "Ucho" means "pretend cupcake" while "Ocho" means "pretend carrot" - I'm not exactly sure of the spelling, but "U" sounds like "oo" as in "Moo-moo" while "O" is "oh" as in "Oh, my!"

Fair enough!

The list of places you didn't recognize was, indeed, Barbecue!

I love KFC's "Famous Bowls" and I've never heard of either Rudy's or Dion's, I'm afraid, but they sound great!

Is there a particular character from Chrono Trigger you like the best? The least? Why for each?

Paizo Employee Customer Service Representative

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Hmm, well I usually Ucho strawberry with delicous strawberry cream frosting. I don't usually Ocho but whne I do it is baby carrots. Ocho is the number 8 in Spanish by the way, so I do often ocho in pacific time (sometimes mountain time though).

Rudy's and Dion's are both in Albuquerque. I think Rudy's is only there. Dion's may be a southwest chain (I'm not sure, but they do have locations in other cities). I highly recommend both if you are ever in the area.

My favorite Chrono Trigger character is Ayla. She's a warrior and bruiser. A prehistoric style game is something I really want. I'm really looking forward to WiLD, and Horizon: Zero Dawn (Horizon isn't really a prehistoric game but close in several regards).

My son's only response to your answers was:

"O.O"

"...wwwooowww~!" (whispered).

EDIT:

Oh! He finally came up with some.

(This was sitting on my phone, waiting to be submitted, for a while.)

"What do you 'Ah-ee'?" This is apparently gibberish.
"What do you 'Much-do'?" How much books do you read? (We're working on English grammar.)
"What do you 'Eech-Ahch'? More gibberish.

Ayla was awesome~!

I remember that, until very high levels via multiple playthroughs, I used to require her and Marle to both be on my team for their double tech with the massive icicle.

I've not really heard of those games.

That said, going very old-school, and not exactly pre-historic, do you happen to recall Turok: Dinosaur Hunter?

It was an old video game - I... don't remember it being very good, but it was at least good enough to finish (as opposed to something like Eek!: the Cat which I just couldn't ever motivate myself past the first few levels).

Paizo Employee Customer Service Representative

Lets see, what do I Ah-ee? Mostly books I think. I Much-do about 2 hours a night before bed (though I have been very bad about this lately and I'm trying to get back on track). I Eech-Ahch mostly Sci-Fi lately.

I remember playing a bit of Turok on my N64 way back when. I didn't own the game, I borrowed it from a friend. At PAX this year I saw a game called Ark: Survival Evolved that reminded me quite a bit of Turok. I couldn't say how good Turok was as I don't recall much about it. Not good enough to make much of an impression I guess.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is a post apocalyptic game where tech has devolved (why I say sort of prehistoric). There's no dinosaurs or other prehistoric mega fauna like you would have in a prehistoric game, but instead there are giant cybernetic creatures. I got to play a bit of it at PAX and it was really cool.

WiLD I haven't seen much of but it seems interesting so far.

This is actually a really cool list.

Of these, I've only run Council of Thieves and Serpent Skull (most of the way, before real life cut us off), but the more I read up on CotCT, the more excited I am to run it. Our plan is to have a team of four "vigilante" characters (though, at present, the builds are based off of the old version). Similarly, Shattered Star, though we want to go through RotRL, SD, and CotCT first (and, similarly, we want to do so before JR, too). I'm interested in playing in SD, myself, though it may be running it instead.

Who were your characters in any of those, if I may ask?

Paizo Employee Customer Service Representative

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Haha, that is a terrible typo Too late to edit it though.

I call all of them except Serpent's Skull the Varisia APs (even Jade Regent because it starts in Sandpoint and has a whole bunch of Sandpoint NPCs).

In most of them I didn't have a character. I ran Runelords for a group of friends who were pretty new to RPGs. It was a whole lot of fun and they were a great group! I ran CotCT from some coworkers who were interested in RPGs when I worked at the bookstore. It was fun, but maybe a little heavy for such new players.

I ran Shattered Star for my main home group (we just finished it up a month or so ago). I did have a character in that because originally I was going to trade of GMing duties with one of the other guys. I would run books 1, 3, and 5 and he would run 2, 4, and 6. It didn't work out and I ended up running the entire thing. I made a Varisian Fighter/Duelist named Anya Ilnica and reworked her into a Swashbuckler when Advanced Race Guide came out. As soon as it became clear I would be running the entire AP I wanted to drop her entirely as I'm not comfortable with a GMPC. They asked me to leave the character though as they didn't have another heavy martial character (the Magus would have been just fine but they insisted) and they really liked her (I doubt that as I avoided roleplaying her because I wasn't comfortable roleplaying with myself instead of with them, so she had almost no personality that wasn't purely headcanon).

In Second Darkness I played a human rogue. He was a lot of fun. He had little hidey holes all around Riddleport where he stashed stuff. For whatever reason the rest of the party just trusted him to be in charge of the money (and even asked him for money when they needed it instead of carrying their own). Maybe they thought he was putting it in a bank or something. Anyway when Riddleport

Spoiler:
got flooded
we lost everything we weren't carrying. I ran volume 3 of that AP.

I've not actually played or ran Jade Regent or Serpent's Skull but I read them both and enjoyed them. I would like to play or run them some time.

Run the first session for the group you like best, and record yourself. Then send copies of the recording to the other groups. Make a list of things a group can do to become your favorite and tell them that the group that is your favorite each week gets to be the group you run for and record with that week. Make sure to weaponize it by telling everyone else who your favorite is (unless it's them) every chance you get.
