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 Does an Eidolon share initiative with the Summoner?
+1, the true in practice answer. We have eidolons, animal companions, etc. go with their PC to reduce complexity and confusion.

@Runeslinger - remember we clean up comments here, you should probably put your relevant thoughts into an actual answer so they don't get lost.

comment How do you help your GM/fellow PCs track buffs/debuffs?
How do you know whether you "need to remind" or not? What about debuffs? Contribute a better answer than this if you have one.
