    "So then Angel is NG and Gold Dragon LG, you say?

    I don't know... feels like Angels have always been the stereotypical LG image, so I assumed Gold Dragon is NG. Curious."

    They are both supposed to be LG. That said, I'm guessing that if they were trying to have one alignment per Mythic Path they should have picked a different dragon. Not a huge deal but seems weird since like I like said Gold Dragons, by default, are LG. But, again, who knows what their goal was. They could have used another good dragon type for NG (I can't remember off hand which of the good dragons are NG but it isn't gold or even silver). But, Gold Dragon is definitely what you want for a 'mythic path' though.

    They don't seem to in Wrath. It isn't exactly like a grid so movement can still occur in situations where it wouldn't if you were playing PnP. But I have seen enemies get jammed up in doorways before and have used it to my advantage.

    I've seen far more useless chaff being allowed unhindered. He at least posted about gaming and knew what he was talking about. When he tried the things he was talking about in game before talking about them.

    I've seen some mods being called over and over with no effect whatsoever. Maybe not the banhammer explicitly but I don't think that's so blatant it calls for an immediate action.

    I definitely think one month ban is too long a punishment for such a minor offense BUT I only recently started interacting with Desi so I really cannot say if there's more going on behind the scene. Mebbe mods got dozens of reports over the last weeks because of his posting? Just guessing here, it looked quite sudden and if rusty_shackleford theory was correct, after sanitizing the subforum you'd be left with a couple dozen posts and a dog pic.

    Yeeeeaaaa... No wonder some people never had any issues with the Crusade system

    e: By the way, Pathfinder actually sports a nation of nothing but Magical Negroes. They are the oldest and bestest magic tradition in all of Golarion!

    My Magical Negresse is single-handedly mopping up all the level 5-6 armies the demons send my way. I gave her a contingent of shield bearer to meme tank damage and sometimes attach some archers, if the enemies are particularly tough. Otherwise she's more than enough.

    To me, roleplaying only works for tabletop RPGs and maybe some cRPGs that try hard into reactivity, that is the reason I pretty much only power game on combat centric cRPGs because I dont find enjoyable to roleplay with them and trying roleplaying into combat focused trashmob intensive games looks like borderline larping to me.

    If you make a hobbit on a tabletop RPG, you can have a DM to treat your character like a hobbit and that indeed feels like roleplaying and a new experience and you can interact with the world as a hobbit. If you are going to ask me if I prefer to be Aragorn or Frodo, the answer will be always Aragorn if the game isnt flexible and basically the only story available is an Aragorn story of the hero that will save the land by killing alot of shit because frankly, I dont see Frodo as a killing machine, most cRPGs just have an Aragorn story that they shoehorn other races in.

    cRPGs by their nature are way too rigid to provide a satisfying experience for true roleplaying. There are some that get closer like Age of Decadence, Swordflight chapter 2 has excellent class reactivity too with paladins losing lawful status by stealing so actual roleplaying is rewarded more but you kinda have to make a game around that, Infinite Engine games and also Pathfinder cRPGs suck in reactivity, the Pathfinder games alot better than Bioware at it because they offer unique options for some characters but still... after a few failed checks with the same results, I give up on roleplaying imediatly and will treat the game as it is, a combat module to kill shit in.

    You're missing the point. It's the difference between:
    >YOU ARE A SPECIAL BAD ASS, LEVEL UP, BECOME A SUPER LICH ANGEL WITH TIME TRAVEL POWERS AND THEN ASCEND TO GODHOOD.
    >Figure out your past and how you became a weird looking freak who can't die. Oh, on the way, you discover you happened to have been some kind of powerful mage in a past life.
    Both are "special badasses", but one is solely about a power fantasy. The other is a mystery with philosophical components along the way and happens to include the potential to become powerful along the way.

    One is munchkinism as an end unto itself, the other is a concept that would work in any genre and setting: existential amnesia mystery.
    Just what is "ordinary" in a world with elves and monsters? You can be the most ordinary elf in the world, but you're still strange to a real person in the real world.

    This game is about being one of the most special snowflakes of all time - not to tell a greater story or idea, but just because.

    I understand why some disliked the guy, but the thread just won't be the same without him. Sad day for the 'dex.

    You're right. It will be BETTER without him.

    Most posters on this site aren't dumb enough to literally ask to be banned. :M
