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.

Is this something you have really done or seen done?

All answers should be from the point of view of Good Subjective, Bad Subjective - something you've done or can reference and how it turned out. Speculation and "ideas" without experience backing them up will be mocked and downvoted.

comment What are the good formats and online platforms for my game journal?
I think this can be answered from experience as good subjective, if you put some more detail into what you're looking for. Everyone's solution is "good" to them, what do you mean as good, what is your use case and what do you want out of it specifically? If you want "ease of use and WYSIWYG editing" then the LaTeX answer is terrible, if you want something manual to produce professional quality layout it's good, for example.

Yep, this is why Power Attack is basically a must-have for martials.

That's a legitimate opinion you can post in your own answer.

No, it is one targeted on a creature type. There's no detection as an active part of the process.

comment Can a DM be kicked out of the RPGA for making an encounter more dangerous?
It is "weird" but it's a requirement of the format and need for global "fairness" in a setup like that. There's some GM discretion but it is kept to the lacunae not in changing the RAW or Module As Written.
