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.

No arguing over GNS in comments. Take the GNS link in his question as given for the scope of this question.

As long as it bears on the OP's problem, other systems are fine.

comment How to Reconcile the MERP/RM High-Magic System with the Low-Magic Middle Earth Setting?
I think this can be answered fine using Good Subjective, Bad Subjective guidelines. Opinions are not welcome, only experience from those who have run middle-earth games and balanced the "rule system magic" vs the "setting magic."

comment How can I imprison my characters for a long period of time?
If you aren't going to play it out and just have it be GM fiat, then I'm not sure what you're looking for here. "You were in jail! You couldn't escape, the tenth level warden beat the bejeezus out of you every time you tried. Now, 20 years later..."

comment How can I create a character with a gryphon mount?
You have changed your question significantly - try not to do that, ask new questions. If now you also want to know "how can I get an animal companion or divine bond as an arcane spellcaster (without multiclassing I guess as that's pretty obvious)" you should open that as a new question rather than invalidating previous answers.

Welcome to the site. Please check out our help center and tour - I'm afraid answers are meant for standalone answers to the question posed and not partial thoughts, so this is likely to draw downvotes. Feel free and expand it into a complete answer to the question though!

comment What should we do with a player who can't deal with a tough decision and has brought the game to a halt?
Yeah, I hope you can trust everyone on the entire spaceship to be more loyal to you than to the Emperor. Sounds like a great idea.

There's no time constraint on getting rid of something the Inquisition would blow up the ship and kill everyone on board without a second thought to destroy? Um... Okay.
