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 Several damage reduction clarifications for Pathfinder
This old question already has a perfect answer, perhaps we could better use our question-meddling time elsewhere.

comment Can Power Attack be used with light weapons?
So in Pathfinder, a general rule always applies unless there's a specific exception cited. As in Power Attack and in the light weapons there's no exception cited, yes it does, it's as simple as that and the rules don't need to specify "it does."

comment Do celestials weigh the same amount as their template creatures?
More seriously, when there's not a specific rule for it (and really even when there is), it's completely up to your GM. The celestial type says nothing about changing default height/weight/etc so there you go.

Well it's easy enough, you take the number of that kind of celestial that can dance on the head of a pin, and divide the normal creature's weight by the cube root thereof.

Yeah that's awesome but the Net is exotic.

comment What is the ideal Numenera party size, and the practical min and max?
Eh, I feel like that's a weak buck-passing answer that doesn't engage well with the question, just tries to sell it as "good for anyone."
