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.

Very few of these answers seem to be adhering to Good Subjective, Bad Subjective - please don't give untried advice, give things you've used for similar introductions to gaming.

SSD has guessed you are talking about Pathfinder, but it would be good form for you to confirm that for us.

comment Best Healing Potion Possible
Effects of Metamagic Feats on a Spell: In all ways, a metamagic spell operates at its original spell level, even though it is prepared and cast using a higher-level spell slot. Saving throw modifications are not changed unless stated otherwise in the feat description. The modifications made by these feats only apply to spells cast directly by the feat user. A spellcaster can't use a metamagic feat to alter a spell being cast from a wand, scroll, or other device. d20pfsrd.com/feats/metamagic-feats

comment Alternate, 2H, non-double use of quarterstaff?
You do not get the 1.5xSTR when two-weapon fighting with a double weapon, you get 1x and .5x "just as though the character were wielding a one-handed weapon and a light weapon." Proof is every monster stat block that uses a quarterstaff, e.g. d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/monster-listings/monstrous-humanoids/…
