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 politely handle a GM who doesn't appear to 'get' how Dungeon World works?
Yeah, for the situation "A friend ran a new game and he didn't run it the way I think it should be the first session" this is a bit of an Internet Tough Guy answer.

comment How should I handle a ruling that really hurts my character?
The question does meander a bit. @user2623010, can you clarify wht exactly you want help with (most of the answers just help you with "life choices").

Edited to make this not a duplicate. See [If I roll a low Hit Die can I use the fixed value instead?] for the other part of your question.

@Justin please consider editing your question to make the context clear. KRyan and SSD, close the ol' pieholes please. Take it to Meta if needed.

comment What is the chronological list of D&D 3(.5)e material?
We don't do CW any more like the old 4e question. This question is licit if answered with a link to a resource that provides this information, but we probably shouldn't do it here.

comment Can a DM be kicked out of the RPGA for making an encounter more dangerous?
That is not correct in my experience. Even in living campaigns you are not supposed to change encounters or "fudge." I personally am fudge-friendly but when I was helping run Living Greyhawk it was made very clear by the higher ups that was NOT the expectation. Since you are getting money and gear and XP and other stuff "permanently" there was a strong culture of fair (rigid) play.

comment What is the Difference between Intelligence and Wisdom
Assuming you know the basics of what they mean from reading the rules (d20pfsrd.com/basics-ability-scores/ability-scores), I think the question diego links is a duplicate.
