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 How can I start Hoard of the Dragon Queen with 4th level characters?
+1 - there's nothing wrong (and a lot right) with showing the PCs that encounters can be unbalanced. If they are way better than some opposition they might suppose they might be way worse than some opposition and get out of "CR Appropriate" mindset.

See meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/1639/… to see how you might rescope a char-op question to be on topic.

comment How do I make interrogations interesting?
This question is fine as system-agnostic and I have reopened accordingly.

comment How to play a Templar Knight
@Sardathrion I'd rather you re-ask it there according to their site rules - generally, migrating questions runs afoul of whatever that site's question standards are and I prefer not to do it unless we know both communities and their question requirements well.

And you are looking for a tabletop RPG not a computer game right?

comment Scholastic fringe benefit doesn't actually do anything, right?
You could add a link to d20srd.org/srd/skills/knowledge.htm and the magic phrase "Try Again: No. The check represents what you know, and thinking about a topic a second time doesn’t let you know something that you never learned in the first place." to make this a fully sound answer.

comment World Development - A Fresh Start
Locked because this is not on topic for the site as currently stated. Though restating as "What are the pros and cons of using the standard fantasy races in a new fantasy setting?" would probably result in an on topic question.

comment Can Staves, Metamagic Rods, and Other Slotless Items Be Combined Into a Single Item?
The rules don't really make a slotless/held differentiation and I certainly wouldn't allow a 50% discount on e.g. a PoP because "it's on my combo item now".
