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 Low-random, low-dice fantasy rpg system
Answerers: Remember our game-rec guidelines. You need to demonstrate that you have used the system you are recommended for the given use the OP proposes, or have seen it done, so that your answer isn't "I hear this might be good" but "Using this in that way has the following results."

comment For the purposes of Two Weapon Fighting, are pistols considered light weapons?
Wait, are you trying to say that pale stranger text justifies them always being light, or not? Because to me it makes it clear they're not, as them being light for the stranger is part of a long list of benefits in a (Su) ability.

comment What's a good system for a short adventure / one-shot in Westeros
I'm going to close this because as best as I can tell literally none of the answers are following our game-rec guidelines of "only speak up if you've run this kind of game with the system you are proposing."

comment Is there anything preventing a Lawful Evil Paladin?
Per meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/5357/… we are not interested in alignment debates here. Please stick to answering the question, and if you have a different opinion on alignment (as is likely, as no two people share one) then contribute your own answer. Arguing in comments will be deleted without notice.

Watching the movie "Tetsuo: The Iron Man" might provide some insight to this.

comment Is “moving into the defender's space” analagous with “moving out of a threatened square”?
Right, but Improved Overrun is giving you an additional benefit (target can't avoid) that isn't a benefit other special attacks need to give, because all special attacks are a little different from each other.

comment Is “moving into the defender's space” analagous with “moving out of a threatened square”?
A) text trumps tables, B) not every feat gives the same benefits - some maneuver feats remove the AoO, some don't, as designed.

comment What are the best ways to maximize int score?
A good question would show your research. I assume you know about some sources of INT bonuses, right? Please list them so people aren't doing busy-work.
