    Pathfinder/Numenera Hybrid

    I realized at Gencon this year that I had become exhausted on the Pathfinder/d20 system. The only time run Pathfinder at Gencon is during the Iron DM tournament, and the process is so labor intensive that I frequently feel that keeping track of all the rules, running clocks and statistics of a...

    ZEITGEIST Zeitgeist with 3 or 4 players?

    Monster building will never be an exact science. What I do (and a lot of top DMs) is reduce the hp of the monster by 10hp to 20hp on the fly when an encounter difficulty seems to be above what is stated for a party size. At that point you'll be able to take statistics for your own party of how...

    ZEITGEIST Players adventure into the Dreaming

    Looking at the official adventure summaries for the next few Zeitgeist adventures, it does not look like the main party will return to the Dreaming "officially" for some time to permanently deal with the Colossus. Ranger, would you mind reading my plot synoposis below and telling me will i have...

    Caudron Born Suggestions (spoilers)

    So my party are in their third adventure of Cauldron Born. The feedback has been very interersting. For hte most part they love it, as usual, for the investigations. They hate the constant switching but I've managed to just reorganize the b-team interludes at either the beginning or end of...

    ZEITGEIST Lorefinder is perfect for Zeitgeist

    I recommend anyone running Zeitgeist to pick up this book. I started reading it a couple months ago and using it in my game and couldn't believe how easy it was to integrate. My players find the mystery solving 10x better when the game is not how they roll but turns into figuring out the right...

    The B Team

    Having not read the adventure yet, is this a set of characters (or 2nd ones) the players can design themselves or is this specific to the game. My party would be interested in this as final fantasy vi is one of our favorite games. What would the specs be.

    Cauldron Born - Paycheck

    How much do the pcs get paid at the beginning. I'd love for them to spend it before we start it.

    NPC under house arrest

    Ack!! I'm not sure if I did something wrong or forgot a detail but my PCs arrested Luc Jierre at the end of Adventure 1. I assumed the house arrest was still going on even throughout adventure 3. HOwever, this looks like Luc should have been released a long time ago. Is that true? Or is there...

    4th Adventure Loot:

    We just finished Digging with Lies, the party has a bunch of adventures to keep them busy, but what is the loot that would be handed out at the beginning of the next adventure. They want to get paid now.

    ZEITGEIST A Pixie in Zeitgeist?

    Google through the forums, there are a whole mess of end results of these kinds of decisions. Most center around a player choosing some off the wall combination to be cute, and angering and irking other players and the DM with it, then the DM getting on and asking how to get back control of...

    ZEITGEIST A Pixie in Zeitgeist?

    I'm against the idea of a PC railroading the campaign so she can play her own version of the campaign. If she actually developed the background that 'Ranger did, " I"d allow it, that's creativity. But she just wants to play something "unique" and "annoying". What i like to call the batman...

    ZEITGEIST A Pixie in Zeitgeist?

    Get some control over your game. Halfing vampires? Pixies? And you don't like them. This is usually my rule for a game. I like players to play things they enjoy within reason. I have a list of allowed races. If they want to do something that is not on the list, then they need to write a...

    PF1E Will Paizo be the Good Guy? (humor)

    Is it just me, or are there an absurd amount of us on here talking about how soon we'll leave our pathfinder games for 5e? Isn't this the equivalent of going back to an abusive relationship, even after we lived with the really good guy who bought us a house and painted it the color we want...

    When do you boot a player

    I have a problem player, not fun problem like I"ve had before, but seriously bothering the other players problem. I've talked to him about the behaviors. I experienced the same thing at this game. So I"m wondering, what behaviors warrant booting from a game. I didnt want to retail my story...

    Martial Scientist's Experimental Strike is powerful/vague

    I'm pretty sure, if not for the power gamer at my table, that I would possibly never have noticed the potency of this ability. It feels that this feat needs some specific mechanical rules to avoid abuse. It essentially provides a second backup attack that can be far more beneficial than the...
