    If you guys didn't catch it I was making a joke on how seriously you could look into the way the world works in other editions. In reference to Mmrnmhrms' post.

    The best way to do it, I think, is to have a large amount of skeletons in a x-dimensional space and call upon that space whenever you need a super-sonic rock.

    Skeletons in a large bag of holding perhaps?

    Although leadership is easier.




    Also: posting this again because it was the last post on the previous page and I want people to see it:
    ON THE UP SIDE:
    In april WoTC is releasing the 3 core books to 1eAD&D in new hardcover form. They're priced at $35 a book and I highly recommend them. There will be PHB, DMG and Monster Manual 1.

    ALSO: Some of the profit goes towards a charity foundation in memory of Garry Gygax.

    Bag of holding filled with skeletal pixies.

    Easily stackable, and you can basically convert them into a portable railgun (accelerate rocks and all that jazz.)

    I was playing a session a little while ago. me and my buddy (i'm a wizard, he's an archer) encounter a mad old man. He's doddering about "The surprise" and looking us over suspiciously. My buddy decides to interrogate him. He grabs the old man on his shoulders and yells into his face to attempt to intimidate him.

    The old man reaches into his pocket, pulls out a small bag, opens it, and emptys it towards my friend. Want to know what was inside?

    Bees. FUCKING BEES. HE HAD A BAG FULL OF BEES WHY

    It could've been worse, it could've been a Warforged filled with bees that poured forth either on command or when it took damage.



    A pocketful of bees is even more useful then pocket sand, and that's saying something.

    I bought the starter pack and it seemed really good but I couldn't find anyone to play it with. I looked up a comic store nearby that was supposed to play it but ended up never going. Is there anyway I can play this online or over the web with some Facepunch bros able to lecture me back up to speed?

    You can start / find an open group on /tg/ they usually play over IRC.

    FP seems to prefer maptools, which is annoying as PISS because whenever I run maptools I constantly get java error popups and it's a headache.

    It's still worth it though, because pathfinder is so great.

    It can store a combined weight of up to forty times its own weight

    True, which is why a portable hole is so much more usefull in cases like this than a mere bag of holding.
    Although the best solution is to take a portable hole, and then put the bag of holding inside.

    Having it closed when it fell in would be worse, depending on how the hell pressure works with interdimensional sacks if it sank it could end up bursting.

    My irl group are planning to try out some Shadowrun. I already made my character. Damn, this will be fun. She is an "stereotypical female assassin". She literally for real makes the joke/stereotype about shadowrun that you need a lot of d6s become true. Because when I snipe someone with my sniper rifle. I throw 21d6 . Sexy stuff.

    So yeah, to the pocket people, I've had a bunch of shit going on involving job hunting and haven't had any time to put into actually developing my campaign.
    I actually closed the group on Steam until this is settled.

    I have a generic town, a reason to investigate something, and the area (I hope) everyone would go to. That's it, not much more, not enough for me to safely start.

    I leave you with this random world map for now.

    The System Reference Document should work just fine if you are planning to play either 3.5E or Pathfinder.

    I just took a Dwarf Fortress world map in ASCII mode, cut all the black out and shrunk it down so each tile was 1 pixel, then recolored and stretched up 200% from the small size.
    Oh, and I used some lighter/darker brushes so the whole world didn't look so bland and flat.

    I just finished my 2nd session with my new weekly group.

    A sleep spell (errata'd to be a charm) caused the BBEG and his minions to fall asleep, where we proceeded to coup-de-grace them. and crit fail. several times.

    I'm loving my hybrid character. I go first almost every time, buff allies, grant temp hp, slide em everywhere then give them extra attacks. In the first turn. Our DM is now throwing harder monsters at us.

    Loving it.

    Hey, first time posting in this thread.
    My friend (DM) started a tenth level campaign last week. Near the end of this first adventure (We were sent as a strike team to kill a mind flayer. Right during the final battle, Zinth, an NPC 'friend', turned on us and joined the fight against us. My friend, the ranger, already fighting a few drows, let an arrow his way. He rolled a 20, great, roll again. He got a second twenty. We are going by the rules that three twenties equals instant death, and he made it! First time I saw that happen.

    4:17 PM - CredeSniper: So our group of four after escaping their inital prison wander across a snow barren field. The cold being two much for three of the four, seek shelter in a cave. Finding the tracks they were following earlier, tracks that were hidden by the snow, reveal themselves once more going to the right. They procede with caution, only to stop after hearing the screech of something large and irregular. The cleric warns them "Laddies, we shouldn't go this way, it doesn't feel right." Henry, the goblin that had joined them couldn't understand the clerics accent and went foward weapon drawn. Suddenly he was attacked from above! The white, spider like creature fell down, but a quick reaction saved him a grim fate, as he raised his shield to deflect the strike. The other still at the mouth of the tunnel heard the large thump, and second screech. Caution now behind them they rushed foward to help their little friend. Blows were exchanged between the goblin and this spider like creature, he lost his shield as the creature struck again. Kira, the fighter was first to get close enough to see through the darkness. Charging into the skirmish, with a mightly blow, he struck deeply with his greatsword into the beasts abdomen, and it fell. The high elf and the cleric came forward, seeing the reamins. They moved on, now interested into what they could find. Suddenly the fighter trips! He decends into a cavern so deep darkness covered the bottom. Still they went on. Slowly a new sound was heard, the quiet chanting of a robed figure. As they approached the cleric felt unease, detected an unholy magic within this new room.
    4:18 PM - ***mad [h+]: disgonbgud.gif
    4:21 PM - CredeSniper: The goblin lept! Striking this figure in the back, crippling him and silencing him forever. They searched him, and the room only to find nothing. A slow moan of stone sliding upon stone was heard, and the small ridge connecting the entrance to his room was shortened. Both the cleric and the goblin signalled for their high elf ranger to step back. First the goblin. He attempted to jump across, only to fall short. Weapon banging againt the edge where his feet should have landed, he decended intot he darkness. No vocal sound was made, only the thump as he hit the bottom. For several minutes the cleric and ranger shouted, only to get no response. Now it was the clerics turn. Taking caution with his jump, he too fell short. His shout echo'd as he fell, and then silence. The high elf was stunned, her three companions had fallen into this hole. She had awoke with them less than a day ago in a prison, and with their help had escaped. She couldn't leave them behind. Walking back to the entrance with hope, she went down the right path.
    4:25 PM - CredeSniper: As she walked, her hawk lazily glided behind her, swooping down to rest at her feet as they both gazed frontward. What they saw was blue and translucent, neither had seen such a thing before. She urged her hawk to see what it was. Foolishly the hawk took off, and licked this blue wall. Quickly he was sucked into it, and the bond the two shared grew dim. The hawk was still. The high elf was now alone to a greater degree. The potions! They had found three earlier, along with a poem written upon the wall. One potion was green, one blue, one clear. The poem read
    "Opaque to make, this one shall take. Flush as flower, this shall devour. Like sky this be, a key you'll recieve."
    She couldn't connect the poem to the potions, and with hope growing dim she drank the green one. Posion. She fell to the ground, and took her last breath.
    4:25 PM - CredeSniper: /end
    Was chatting with imadaman and he wouldn't accepted my story without details, so I wrote this up. Thought I would share it.
