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.

This is different for 3.5 and Pathfinder, why are you tagging with both? If you're really only playing one, tag with that one.

Discuss question validity (inasmuch as it doesn't get turned into a proper game rec) on Meta here.

comment Is there a fantasy RPG system which does not try to be old-school?
I think this is a poor game-rec question - the requirements are overly broad and stated negatively more than positively - any of the 400 extant fantasy games that don't say "old school!" (and some that do, from looking at the below answers) qualify. Should probably have voted to close long ago.

comment Can I take a 5-foot Step and perform any standard action after?
In fact, you can take a 5 foot step and perform a full action. Or a standard and a move action other than moving.

comment How is a ranged touch spell attack calculated?
@Nerevar That is correct.
