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 We are new players and need help
Hello and welcome. I am closing this as a duplicate of one of our general "how do I get started" questions. Please look around the site, especially the help center and tour, to get oriented - we work on specific answerable questions, not general discussion or ideas. Once you read the D&D books, please any ask specific questions you have here (and, check to see if they've been asked before...). The new-players tag may be of help.

comment Is Microscope a good game for a conflict-avoidant, disaffectionate player?
A different question might also be helpful, but until that time answers here should answer THIS question. Check meta on how to challenge the frame of a question, but just suggesting other games is not it.

comment How do you handle combat in Pathfinder when there are too many foes to even count?
Is that an extra confusing way of stating "1 to 15" or something? If so please edit it into your question.

If you do this, please mention how you get around the risk of player-favorites making the process less than fair?

Jake, please edit your question to make it more clear what you're asking, and it can be reopened.

comment Why is the Deck of Many Things called the Eater of Campaigns?
Good answer. I'd note that Paizo's Curse of the Crimson Throne adventure path (3.5e) incorporates a Deck of Many Things skillfully into a story based campaign, for those who want to see how to do it.
