Cal, why does Tacticslion like you better than he likes me?

Daggummit, Jiggy, if you've got a thread I've missed somewhere, I've apologized for that, on, like, all the other threads! :P

Link me, my dude! My memory's shot these days! (Besides I thought the one voting you for historian was locked or something and/or wasn't an AMA? Am I conflating threads?)

For clarity, I didn't apologize to Jiggy, just, you know, in general: i.e. "if I've missed an AMA somewhere..." sort of thing... (I even have it posted twice on my thread so people whose threads I've not gotten can get it posted on their own...) ;D

Since I've never heard of either of them, I had to go to Youtube to check them out. I'm gonna go with Mars Argo.

Anyhow, DMC, what is your favorite Path of War discipline?

I like Black Seraph a lot. It's dark, it's dangerous, and it's deadly.

Well, I do speak of the pompatus of love. Incidentally, in Latin pompatus is an actual word meaning "done with pomp or splendor".

Nice choice. :)

I liked Poppy's covers and such before this, but Mars does the shtick better.

Dice throwing? for when the players start getting too argumentative.

In real life? The rapier. I fenced in college and while I wasn't nearly as heavy as I am now, for tall husky guy I was actually pretty good.


Super serious question, Cal.

Priest or Maiden?


Up the Irons! I'm a really big fan of both, to be honest. But I have every one of Maiden's releases and have seen them live 6 times.

Here's something about me. I don't like touching my food with my hands. Some foods, like fruits or sandwiches, are ok. But food that is moist or greasy has to be eaten with a fork like a civilized person. I even eat my burgers with a fork.

Gonna have to go with what Ambrosia Slaad said, I'm afraid. I've never driven in mountains at all, just the low hills of the Ozarks. You can pretty much drive anything here during the winter if you're careful, and with climate change it rarely ever even snows here anymore.

The most memorable was my first character I rolled up on my own, an Anti-Paladin in all evil campaign. So many fun times over the years with that character.

Another memorable character I played was also in DC Heroes. His name was Diehard and his whole schtick was he couldn't be harmed by anything. No superstrength, heat vision, nothing. He had a plasma rifle as his only offensive option. He once took a punch from Superman and had to take a cab back to the fight from where he landed, but he was unharmed.

The most memorable I've seen played... hmm.. that's a tough one. I guess it would have to be a character in the DC Heroes Superhero game named Mystique. She was a sorceress and I played a sorcerer based on Elric of Melnibone'. They ended up falling in love (in real life we were both married but not to each other) and we even roleplayed out a wedding and reception (a big bbq with all the team members in Justice League Canada...that was our organization). That was a lot of fun.

Another memorable one I saw played was this guy a friend brought over who bragged that his character was unkillable. This was in a 2e game when traps meant something and he died a horrible, rat filled death. He stormed out screaming incoherently and I never saw him again.

Heh.

The Least Memorable was a Half Succubus Half Human assassin my DM rolled up as the daughter of my Anti-Paladin in 1e. I never liked the character and only played her when it was necessary to advance the story arc he was developing.

The least memorable I've seen played.. hmmm...This guy played once game with my group after being invited by another player. He was very evasive as to what class he was playing, nothing on his sheet gave much indication, either. It might have been a fighter. What I remember most about him was he had a deep metal canister lid (like the kind popcorn comes in around Christmas) and he rolled his dice in in. Every roll he'd shout, "Critical Success!". I finally called the game off and told my friend who'd brought him to take him home.

Heh. So I guess the latter was more of a memorable character rather than having a memorable character?

I used to have a "baby dice" (tiny d20) that bounced like crazy and - almost regardless of what I would do - usually rolled off the table and seemed to very often landed on a 20 while on the floor - and if not a 20, then consistently high (though it was more often with social rolls than non-social rolls). None of them could get similar results (except the bouncing wildly and dropping off the table), and I freely volunteered to let others look for me, if they wanted (which they rarely took me up on, but generally bore out my statements). Irritated the daylights out of my fellow players, but at the time I was a broke college student and due to various reasons, that was literally the only dice set that I had (and only d20), and I just couldn't afford to buy a new set.

Did you ever have a weird set of dice like that?

Do you know the dungeon crawl classic adventurers? what do you think about them?

What are your favorite PF and non-PF rpg books?

I had a set of "steampunk" themed dice from Q-Workshop dice that looked great but rolled like crap for me. I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with bass fiddle using those dice. They just seem cursed. I gave them to my son and he uses them almost exclusively because they roll great for him.

I know of the Dungeon Crawl Classics, and all I know about them is from what I've read from people who've played them or reviewed them. They seem fun, but as I run a complete homebrew and absolutely stink at running modules I've never had the opportunity to use one in an adventure.

My favorite PF book is the Core Rulebook. I don't know what iteration I have, and that's not really important to me, anyway. My second favorite is the new Horror Adventures. I can't wait to unleash some of the new things in it on my group.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I never liked the CRB, I might buy the horror adventures since it seems more useful for DMs.

The Horror Adventures book is more geared toward GMs in my opinion. There are no new classes, though there are plenty of feats and spells for players. But the monsters, haunts, sanity, and fear rules should be GM exclusive.

OA is growing on me. I found the classes a bit too complicated at first (I don't have the ability to process information like I used to, but that's a whole different thing) so reading through I had a hard time with some of it. The Kineticist still baffles me, though I've rolled up a Psychic NPC and really like the way it turned out.

Kineticist is hard at first, but once you make one they get easier to understand as you go along.

We have a party of a Pyrokineticist, Hydrokineticist, Mesmerist, and Medium, they're all a lot of fun. :-)


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That sounds like a really interesting party!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

My "primary" party consists of a Rogue, A Bard with the Investigator Archetype, a Psion Telepath, and a Pugilist/Justicar (both 3rd party classes). My occasional players who make really long drives about once a month to play with us have a Halfling Rogue (why does everyone play Halflings like they're empty headed children?), a Cleric/Rogue, a Barbarian, and a Fighter.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I would like to try some OC classes, they seem cool fluff-wise, but they seems to be too complicated mechanical-wise for me to bother, and i don't make mch Pcs anyways.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I don't either, being the GM 95% of the time, but I learn about their mechanics by building them as NPCs for my players to either interact with or as antagonists.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'm too lazy for that, that's why I prefer tweaking pregenerated NPCs.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I do a lot of that, too. I just find the ones I want on d20pfsrd.com and then make whatever adjustments I want. I just finished an Undead Lord Dread Vampire Drow (EDIT). She was a 15th level Cleric before the templates. Great character then added 2 templates and voila! A CR 20 villain.

RE: how people play Halflings.

It's because they're literally the same size and physical makeup as 8-10 year old children, pile on that a natural fearlessness, curiosity, and dumb luck, and what do you get, Halflings.

To be honest, I'm always a little suspicious if they don't play them like their children. :-)

LOL...I meant "play them like they're children", not "their". Sometimes I see the right word in my head but my hands type something else.

Behaviour like that are weird and I never understood them taking into account how easily characters can die in 2e.

I play them like cannibalistic barbarians.
