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.

Please clarify anything in the question that needs clarification, let's all lay off the huge comments.

comment How do I select background music for my RPG campaign?
Please consider making this into more of a "how to choose" than a list of items. We're deleting the single-item answers because they're bad, this one made us have to think about it.

comment Advice for low-level enemy NPCs
Do you really mean NPCs or just monsters? And questions work better when they teach you to fish and don't just hand you some fish. Do you mean "How can I spice up wilderness exploration near the Lost Mines?" Anything that tempts someone to answer "here's a specific cool NPC idea!" will get their answer downvoted and/or deleted and the question closed as a list question.

comment In Pathfinder, what is a good class for a player who will miss sessions
Consider that class probably doesn't matter, you may want to ask about your actual problem (How do I make it easy on my GM if I'm going to miss a lot of sessions) as opposed to focusing on class.

comment Looking for viable build for mounted archer on a medium ride
Please define "viable" to you. Also make it clear which parts of the build are mandatory or not (archer, sneak attack damage, mounted on medium mount? Are you Small?)

comment Are there negative impacts to having characters advance at different rates?
-1 for completely reframing this as "punishment." The way the rules work by default, PCs get XP and treasure for doing stuff; simply using entitlement-language of "well anyone not getting the stuff is just being punished" fails to engage with the initial point of the rules.

comment Is there an official Pathfinder “Mana” system for wizards?
Please edit your clarifications into your question. Also consider asking about the actual problem you have in your question instead of your intended solution, if you think other suggestions besides "spell points" would be useful to you.

comment How Should I Change the Star Trek Phaser Table?
Hey, so what is the actual question here? Remember our Q&A format, "give me suggestions" isn't on topic, you should ask a clear question that can have a best answer.
