Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment What Aspects of Pathfinder Are Most Important for New Players?
This seems to be assuming that the GM is also new to Pathfinder. I'm pretty sure that's not the case, and the crux of the question is what's important to give a quintessentially-Pathfinder experience to new players (which can be hard to figure out when one is super-familiar with a game already).

This answer starts off as if it's replying to or adding to what another post said. However, we aren't a forum and posts can be displayed in many different orders, so that makes the beginning of your answer not very understandable. Could you edit this to stand alone as an answer to the question? Imagine there are no other answers and yours is the first—try to give as complete an answer as possible, as you would if nobody else had posted here.

I host a formatted archive of the "TSR vs. The Internet" postings that you could use as an example of TSR's descent into madness.

comment Help Calculating Dice Odds for a Unique d6 Dice Pool
So, same as rolling a pool and counting dice showing 3+ as a success, but offering different dice-manipulation possibilities before counting successes. Interesting.
