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 Pinning a Shield with a Shield?
Undeleted. This answer doesn't speak to the exact rules question but is instead frame challenging with information on what real historical fighting would be like instead.

comment Is this Dex/Int build Viable for a PVP arena playing primarily vs Glass-Cannon Casters
CharOp questions are on topic here but generally legit ones fall into two different categories, see Are character optimization questions on topic?. Initial guidance is fine.

All this needs to be either incorporated into this answer or moved to its own, but it will be deleted. Comments on an answer are for improving an answer, not for being a related discussion thread.

comment Is there a way to weaponize a Battle Magic Tactics token?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is just a hypothetical, which the SE FAQ says is not a good kind of question. rpg.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask

comment How to deal with rude players?
I think it's a duplicate enough that it's going to get all the exact same answers every problem-players question does (kick him, talk to him, talk to him then kick him, kill his character, etc.).

comment Looking for a game system to handle non-human PCs in a modern setting (Not horror)
This could be done with hundreds of games - try to narrow down more of what you'd like out of a system to support this. What do you "have on hand" and why doesn't it fit? What would make GURPS, FATE, or Savage Worlds a better answer than the other?

comment Simple, classless system for normals exploring ruins of ancient high fantasy world
Don't know about default (it's not out yet) but they say you can not pick one and go nuts on skills and wild-casting...
