    "Your Notifications" ... ?

    Is it possible to disable the "Your Notifications" entries drop-down, in whole or in part? It's pretty annoying, and since it doesn't go away from clicking on it (only from actually following one of the links), it's actually kinda useless. It didn't bother me when it was just XP notifications...

    3E/3.5 3.5 Whip feats?

    EN Publishing has a PDF called something like "EN Arsenal: Whips." I've only glanced it over, so I can't exactly say I recommend it, but it's a PDF ... whaddaya got to lose?

    Free adventure! ( ... with caveats)

    I have an adventure for 7th-level PFRPG PCs. This is an adventure I originally wrote for 3.5, but I've now converted it an updated it for PF. The caveats: (1) Being intended as a convention game, it's linear and rail-roadish. I think the rails are hidden fairly well, especially with a good...

    GenCon Event - An Old School Adventure

    A couple of years ago I ran this adventure as a 3.5 farewell at GenCon, and it seemed to be very fun for everyone. As the name implies, I designed it to be as evocative as I could of the D&D experiences I've had since I was young. It's straightforward and cliches abound, but there are little...

    HELP! High-tech villain's base?

    Rather than reinvent the wheel, I figured I'd ask here. Does anyone have maps for a high-tech HQ/lair? Suggestions and links for PDFs, free or not, would be great, too. Underground would be ideal, but I can likely adapt something above-ground. It of course doesn't have to be specifically for...

    Iron Man 2 (Blu-ray) for $10 ...

    Amazon.com. (Note that I don't work for Amazon and this isn't an ad. It's just super-cheap and I figured geeks like me would be interested.)

    GMS - How do you handle Knockback?

    Do you just handle it on an ad hoc basis? What powers/descriptors can cause knockback? When do they? When don't they? (I'm not talking about comparing Damage to Toughness for the Knockback modifier, BTW. I'm talking more generally.) I finally settled on "I decide if a power can cause...

    3E/3.5 What are the main changes from 3.5 to Pathfinder?

    Honestly, my only beef with PFRPG is that I feel they borked the skill consolidation. They clearly made skill consolidation choices based on balancing three factors: fun, realism, and play balance (i.e., utility in play). The problem is that the weighing seems to have varied greatly from...

    3E/3.5 What are the main changes from 3.5 to Pathfinder?

    It was. PFRPG simply clarifies this, as it does it a few other places.

    Have you ever driven a player from a game?

    The question is mostly self-explanatory, but I will clarify that I mostly have in mind "a largely unobjectionable player," with the implication that your behavior was ... not ideal. This will come as a universal shock to the reader (you may want to be seated), but I can be an abrasive guy...

    NPC creation trends?

    Recently I felt like I've been losing a handle on the details of my M&M campaign (mainly because of my propensity to improvise quite a bit and write notes on literally any flat surface), so I've started synthesizing a "Master Campaign Log." It's got entries for superheroes, supervillains, NPCs...

    PF1E [SF Bay Area] Seeking one player each: M&M and Pathfinder ...

    We have two alternating Sunday games (Pathfinder and M&M), and could use a player for each. (Each game currently has a GM and four players.) Each game runs from 2 PM to 7:30 PM (sometimes ending a bit earlier). Beginners are welcome in both games; you should be familiar with face-to-face RPGs...

    4E Is Pathfinder Combat As Slow as 4e?

    I'm also a fan of minions, and have been since SR2 introduced the concept of "Professional Rating" (i.e., at what wound level an opponent will pass out, surrender, or flee). In Pathfinder (Beta), toward the end of my campaign, I was giving "minions" minimum HP based on HD, and the most...

    Wow, do I hate rolling for stats!

    Pathfinder game, I rolled what would be 11 points in point-buy. Everyone else rolled between 15 and 20 points, except the guy who rolled about 28 points. I went from feeling enthusiastic to feeling like my character might as well be named The Gimp.

    Quick Witch questions ...

    (1) I'm sure the answer is "yes," but witches can be male, right? This is a case of an unfortunate illustrative pronoun. (2) Are hexes time limited, beyond specific descriptions?

    3E/3.5 [3.5] Diappointed in level 6 cleric spells

    Greater dispel magic is eventually a fine (and all but necessary) spell, but not for an 11th level cleric. (I mean, seriously, you're going to use a 6th-level spell slot for a +1 over what a 3rd-level slot will give you?) The big three for me were heal, blade barrier, and superior resistance...

    3E/3.5 [3.5] Making a Scout a better archer?

    Improved Skirmish (already mentioned) and skirmisher boots (MIC, I think) are big helps in making a viable ranged scout. (IMO, Improved Skirmish is so good, its creation is basically WotC's way of saying, "Oops. Scout was too weak.")

    BattleTech - Charging question ...

    I played a lot of BattleTech as an undergrad, about *cough* years ago, but we're relearning the rules for some casual play now. Charging seems to be absurdly powerful. Number of hexes moved times 1 point for every 10 tons of mech weight (to defender), just 1 point per 10 tons of weight (to...

    PF1E Seeking Pathfinder online game ...

    If you're like me, you know it can be difficult to find a stable group online. If you're an online GM, I can't promise you a stable group, but I can promise that I'm a dedicated player. If I agree to a day and time, I'll make 95 percent of sessions, barring only emergencies. I'll actually...
