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 How viable is a rogue in Pathfinder?
I'm pointing out a) how Pathfinder play may differ from 3.5e play especially the more APs and Pathfinder-minded stuff you use, and b) I disagree with "weaker" since you can SA more creatures and you seem to be basing "you can SA less" on the lack of grease and blink, and ignoring all the PF movement powers that help you get into flank.

comment How to roleplay a PC torture scene
I didn't downvote it but I'm tempted to now that I see it. It doesn't answer the question. It also doesn't add anything new, many of the other answers say the exact same thing as a "be careful" preface.

comment How has D&D changed over time in its guidance to DMs as to when to extrapolate from written rules and when to improvise?
I've published a longer version of this on my blog at geek-related.com/2013/10/12/rule-zero-over-the-years - I hit the size cap here!
