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 What happens when I think like a dragon?
Hey man, this seems to be an unsubstantiated opinion and therefore not really a high quality answer for the site. I suspect that's why it's drawing downvotes.

comment What races would the drow be using as slaves?
Menial tasks and stuff; they're suitable once made docile. Trogs also come and go in their cities as poor travelers (there's a flophouse they stay in in the city). Oh and they fleshwarp them into a new monster in the AP too.

Don't answer in comments. Fering, the downvotes were probably from the previous lack of clarity (what game world?) and grammar/formatting, post the edit I gave it I would think that would nip most of the downvoting in the bud.

comment How can I get my group to agree on a set of stable house rules?
On the one hand, I don't know that not knowing why prevents this from being a legal question; on the other hand it'll just get answered with 10 variations on "go talk to them dude" so...

Besides the martial study feat or taking more levels in warblade, you mean?

comment What does the P stand for in the Type column?
For both these questions, the text under Weapons in the equipment description section explains all the columns... p. 73 in my first printing.
