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 is the best way to play D&D via long distance?
Curtis, can you specify if you want an all-online group or a tabletop group with 1-2 online players? Both have been answered, but we can point at the right one.

comment How long does a disguise last?
Another option - have the eidolon look normal and be a smaller character concealed "inside" it, think Rhino, Men In Black, etc.

I think this is more of a duplicate of Tools/techniques for optimal tabletop gaming with one remote user - the "same physical space" question is more about a 100% distributed group, that one is about a mostly-intact group with some remote member(s). Curtis, will you still have an in-person group you'll be adding them to or will this mean a totally online/distributed group for you?

comment Making a mount out of an exotic animal
I don't know, always been that way. It mentions it in the Beast Rider rules about whether you can ride the companion you get or not - "The animal chosen as a mount must be large enough to carry the beast rider (Medium or Large for a Small character; Large or Huge for a Medium character)." Also for eidolons, to make them a mount "The eidolon must be at least one size category larger than its rider." Don't know where it says it for horses, but - don't really care either, I'm not a RAW obsessivist.

It has to be one size category larger than you, as well.
