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.

No, this is an answer. It's not super comprehensive, but it's a legit answer.

Closed and historical locked. This is the kind of alignment discussion we don't host any more due to its subjectivity, see meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/5357/…

comment Is an ongoing Human Occupied Landfill (HōL) campaign possible?
-1, not Good Subjective and shows pure speculation.

comment Where is the origin of the “Duck in a Dungeon” trope?
I would guess there's some conceptual inspiration from the killer rabbit in Monty Python and the Holy grail.

comment Can the GM give control over a support NPC to the players?
This is a long standing question that the OP did not system-tag, and running party NPCs is something that's common to most trad RPGs. Leave 'er alone, take it to meta if necessary.

comment What happens to a creature inside both Aqueous Orb and Black Tentacles?
I think that's a fallacious conclusion (that tentacles are Large and therefore would fill an orb). I think it's more like those tentacles are effectively a reach attack from a Large creature.

"Cover against" does not mean "no attack allowed." See d20pfsrd.com/gamemastering/combat#TOC-Cover

comment Are there any adventures/campaigns that centre around a university/college in D&D?
Hate to do this, but "any references about anything university-ey in any D&D" is a big ol' list of stuff. If you can narrow down your needs more to where this is answerable not as an infinite list it'd be good...
