OK, thanks. But now I have to wonder if I got ECL right. APL is "Average Party Level" -- 4 6th-level PCs = APL 6. Except I thought that was ECL, too...
It is Effective Character Level, but he and the OP of that thread should have used CR instead, as ECL was a 3.0/3.5 term and was phased out when Paizo created the Pathfinder system.

Not to be confused with EL.

EL Encounter Level, the sum result of a mathematical calculation to determine if a given encounter consisting of multiple threats/hazards is appropriate to the party's average party level.

Actually, the total context was L2P n00b at first, and then just L2P.

Ravingdork, I'm not quite sure why you went back to an earlier question of mine, but your def of EL is useful.

Pretty sure L2P is "learn to play", an insult I see in online video game and MMO chat.

Edit: depending on the context you came across this term in you might consider flagging or reporting the post. Doesn't really match the atmosphere the powers that be desire here.

Ah. I don't know that I even can find it again, but if I do, will do.

And thanks for the explanation.

L2P or GB2 4e

Thanks. Really. I was just thinking about how I needed to see Hammer's package again before I died.

I have a friend who once came over to my house and drank an entire gallon of milk. I still don't know how he did it.

I thought L2P was "late to party".

Hmm, could be, but the usage in "L2P N00b" leans toward my definition, but more context would be needed to really know.

You're thinking of LttP. I'll use it in a sentence for you.

"Guys I know I'm LttP but I just played Zelda LttP"

Others covered this above!

But I'm looking back at what I missed, and wondering. I've got my party spending the entire adventure seeking an artifact that will in fact change things environmentally. Or rather, it stabilizes things. If they don't get it back from the bad guys, the bad guys will be able to change things faster and more powerfully. It's just that finding the artifact won't do anything for the characters themselves. (For them personally, it's an improvised club.)

The quest for the PCs to find this MacGuffin (I thought) & get it back to the holy place where it belongs before a set date is the plot of the adventure. Given that their land will suffer materially if they fail, is this really not a MacGuffin?

No, it's still a MacGuffin.

To the players, the object really doesn't matter; and, in truth, it really doesn't matter. It just looks like it does, because that object happens to be the MacGuffin.

Instead of the artifact, you could make it a princess, or a pickle, or a specific dance move (that can only be learned in one place, guarded by the baddies), or whatever you want: ultimately the material thingy (or whatever) is irrelevant to the story, and important only because it makes the adventure happen.

Similar logic could be applied to other things that could also be replaced, but you've different names for those other things: protagonists, antagonists, obstacles, etc.

It's worth noting that a MacGuffin could even be useful to the PCs - if the MacGuffin actually provided them with some personal benefit (I don't know, just randomly choosing something, like, it functions like an orange prism ioun stone and also permits control weather CL 30th (1/day), or something), it's still a MacGuffin - it's the thing who's ultimate purpose is to kick off the plot and provide the heft for the adventure. That is also happens to be a useful thingy is just a nice bonus - added motivation to grab it.

{EtA: The movie Diva was a wonderful, absolutely wonderful story of two MacGuffins crossing paths back and forth and colliding. Also of a "Zen master" solving the plot by doing nothing -- in the exact right spot.}

Heh. I might need to check it out at some point!

PEACH?

Yep.


Please Examine And Comment Helpfully. An phrase tortured into a form with the desired acronym.


I want BLEURGH to be an acronym too.


PEACH: "Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly"

Heh - ACRONYM: "Alphabetically Coded Reminder Of Names You Misremember"

I found a whole bunch of fun ones HERE ... Actually thinking about it, this sight solves a lot of our problems (Although it doesn't help with "BLEURGH" =P )

I thought (for some reason) you were asking if Princess Peach (From Mario) is a Mcguffin ... she totally is.

Ninja (Verb): The act of posting content to the forum while another person is writing similar content, before they see your content. The nature of the forum requires the ninja poster to submit their post after the other poster begins to write their post, but before they submit it.
Past participle: Ninja'd


What does IIRL mean?

IRL is In Real Life. Never seen IIRL, could it have been a typo? If it's commonly used I don't know.

IIRC means If I Recall Correctly.

I too have never seen IIRL


Smurf? Cool.


Oradin (already mentioned but I want to elaborate): When you have a paladin that dips in oracle with the life mystery. The life link power lets you transfer damage from your team mates to yourself, and swift action lay on hands lets you heal yourself. Add the fey foundling feat, and it's a pretty efficient build for in-combat healing.

Specific Trumps General- A term to explain reading rules. For example, while the rules say wearing heavy armor reduced your speed, the dwarf racial traits say your speed is never reduced by armor. The two conflict, but the Dwarf traits are specific and apply only to dwarves, while encumberance rules apply to everyone.
