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 can a monk control a battlefield?
We do prefer questions that are solving someone's actual problem over pure theory-wonk questions. "Our heaviest meleer is a monk and wants to do battlefield control" is a much better question than a general open-ended one. And they don't just end with "don't play monk" for people who bother to answer the question.

comment Constitution bonus and health
@wyrmwood Mostly true but worth mentioning that in PF ability drain/damage works differently - you get -1 per 2 points regardless of what your stat is (odd or even) - e.g. 14 CON and 1 point of CON damage = no effect yet.

comment What options are available for a Cleric casting multiple spells per round?
Actually per our help center we strongly prefer people to ask specific questions about their problem (a sixth level cleric in your case) rather than an artificially vague one. Answers should scope to your situation as defined.

Per Back It Up!, if you don't know of "a young boy reading on his own and learning to play," please refrain from answering. A thousand RPGs "might be" good for this. Answer with ones proven to be.
