I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Help me manage a Vampire homebrew roleplay issue
Pathfinder society is the organized play org - there is no home brew therein, those tags are incompatible.

comment Is there any objective reason to favour d20PFSRD over the Paizo PRD?
And if reported they're fixed immediately - the PRD doesn't exactly get loads of editing or curation, so treating it as perfect is not supported by reality either.

comment How many editions of Dungeons & Dragons are there?
This is not really a meaningful answer. I might say that there is only one true version of D&D, third edition, and that earlier efforts with that name were just paleolithic halfway attempts until the true edition most worthy of its name came about. Or that BECMI, having the most sales, is the "real" D&D. It's a pedantic argument designed simply to grandstand and make one's own soapbox point and obviously unhelpful to the OP.

comment Are missing extremities still missing in Wild Shape?
Related note, Pathfinder has actual rules on limb loss as a massive damage variant in the Skull & Shackles Player's Guide (under "Peglegs and Eyepatches," natch). It doesn't cover the wild shape question however.
