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.

+1. Without other players you get less spaz factor but also fewer brilliant ideas. I'd be inclined to say the CR math would actually be more reliable in this case because there's less chaos in the system.

I'm talking about the up to date version, not the old Beta feat version. And it's a simple implicit thing. Yeah, it should probably say "instead of..." for the rules lawyers, but the implication is that you're getting 2x STR and that it doesn't stack with - but their intent was more "instead" - the 1.5x STR.
