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 Preventing saturation in a horror campaign
Thanks for the shout-out. I think the most important thing about a sustained horror campaign's pacing is playing it by ear - understand when your players are overwhelmed or when they are primed for a scare. Being adaptive over following a plan is paramount when you're playing on something as ephemeral as emotion.

comment How does the +3 for class skills work when multiclassing a new class?
It doesn't address it specifically because it works like the skill rules say without modification. Yes, when you multiclass and get new class skills, they become class skills and work like class skills, and you can get the +3 in them if you have a rank.

comment How do I politely decline to hear a gaming story?
Sorry, I agree with the close votes. See this venn diagram that explains what's probably on/off topic for a SE - this isn't really gaming specific.

comment Question on Stacked conditions
No. Intimidate not stacking with Intimidate is an explicit exception. Doom stacks fine with doom. Do not generalize these exceptions into a rule.

Being shaken twice does take you to frightened, see the Fear rules.

comment Can I see through an open doorway?
"It's in the rules" is the scoundrel's excuse for doing something stupid.
