    I think that any spells acquired as a result of classes, races or feats, where you know a specific spell and can cast it a specific number of times per day should be treated as a "known spell" for the purpose of creating magical scrolls or other magical objects.



    Honestly I would be a bit weary of allowing proficiencies to overly improve the creation of magical items. Shaving off a few hours or days of work is okay - in my experience most groups don't tend to cleave too closely to item creation times. "Yeah, you have enough time to make X," is common....

    That's honestly a bit disappointing. I actually liked how Archetypes would allow you to trade out parts of the class chassis that you didn't like, and replace them with features that you did like. Archetypes introduced a lot of much needed versatility to the classes, but this kind of feels like it's moving backwards.

    Saw Incredibles 2 last night. I'd say it was about as good as the first one, and I just rewatched the first one a couple of hours before seeing the second one so it's not simply nostalgia goggles talking. The first movie holds up pretty well and the second one holds its own. If you're able to do so I'd highly recommend rewatching the first movie before going to see this one, since the second movie picks up at the exact moment the first movie left off, where a villain with a giant digging machine bursts out from underground.

    The characters felt like the original characters, the story...

    Yeah, I tried. The games really weren't designed for that and ended feel really clunky and awkward, and it's often extremely hard to maneuver compared to games that were designed to be 3rd person from the get go. I know some people really love first person games, but I've just never been a big fan....

    I've never really enjoyed or been able to get into first person games. It's always the biggest hurdle for me when I try to trudge through a Bestheda game. If a game is really, really good or has an amazing hook I might be able to finish a first person game, but it's pretty rare....

    Yeah. This just went from a "Oh neat I'll probably be picking this up," to a, "Maybe when it's on a $5 Steam sale if I've heard lots of good things about it."...

    Yeah, Sony flew Kojima out to E3 to host a panel. I'm sure if they had wanted to, they could have hired a Japanese flutest and flown him out to E3. Sony however, a Japanese company primarily staffed by Japanese individuals, were apparently okay with having this white guy perform at E3. I think accusations of Sony engaging in racism (against themselves?) may be a bit overblown....

  • Yeah, I liked the earlier editions where only a comparatively small handful of clan members were in the "know" about the plan to tear down the shroud (to many in the clan it was a rumor at best) and quite a few of those who knew about the plan thought it was just completely crazy idea that was never going to work. They only nodded and went along with it because they were afraid of making the elders upset. "Sure, sure grandpa, we'll keep working to tear down the Shroud. Don't you worry about a thing. I'll get right to it just after I'm done checking my stock portfolio..."...

    Those musicians were like.... wow. I don't know what they were thinking. The games were pretty neat though. I'm sold on Ghost of Tsushima - even if it only looks half as good as it did in that gameplay trailer it's going to be beautiful.

    To be honest I didn't expect much from their conference. Squenix typically leaves their big reveals for the Tokyo Game Show and just drops a few breadcrumbs at E3. I was a little disspointed not to see anything about FF7 though.

    And honestly their just showing game trailers was better than many conferences where you have morons in suits talking about stuff that nobody cares about. Or EA's conference where they were trying to get cheers by saying, "No more lootboxes!" and, "we're sorry for trying to rip you off so badly in Star Wars we promise we'll never do anything...

    Starfield could be pretty interesting. Or at least different. I've never been a huge Bestheda fan, but several of my friends are, so they'll probably hand-me-down that game when they finish beating it, if it looks like something I might want to play.

    I'm pretty hyped for that one. Vesperia was, by far and away, the best Tales game and honestly I feel one of the better JRPGs out there. Hopefully there's enough new content in there to keep me interested though, since playing through the same game I played through a few years ago but this time with better graphics has never been my cup of tea....

    I never watched the cartoon so I was completely blindslided by it. I guess bringing Darth Maul back as a villain of the week in a cartoon aimed at kids is still kind of dumb, but but ultimately somewhat forgivable. Cartoons do pretty dumb things all the time so I don't expect anything out of them to begin with. But doubling down on it and having him show up in the movie was just a terrible decision. I would have been just as unhappy if Mace Windu or Count Dooku or the Emperor had appeared, fine and well, in Episode 7 or 8. Sad because up until that point I was somewhat enjoying the Han Solo movie,

  • I seem to remember back during Second edition (or maybe it was First edition) someone wrote up (I think) "Grim Executioner Style." I believe it was a Terrestrial Style which focused on wielding a big executioner ax to deliver killing blows. The fluff for the style was that it was created and primarily practiced by a small order of professional executioners located in the Hundred Kingdoms and other parts of the Scavenger Land who were typically hired to kill nobility or other people who were considered worthy of a death with respect, due to the practitioner's ability to deliver an instant,...

    Just got back from the Solo movie. I was on the fence about watching it, since I hadn't enjoyed the more recent Star Wars movies, but my brother paid for my ticket so I figured if I was going to see it, then I might as well see it for free. It had some flaws and felt very rushed, like they were trying to compress too many plot points into too little time, but even still I was somewhat enjoying it right up until that one scene that just killed any enjoyment I'd been having.
    Darth Maul? Really? When he appeared I just kind of threw up in my hands, Like, wow, good job guys. I was finally tentatively

    Yeah, I played through Bloodlines a few months ago. The game has it's flaws, but it's really unique. I've never played anything else quite like it....

    This is reminding me of the martial/caster issue in older Pathfinder and D&D.

    Like, at level 15 Fighters were able to get the ability to blind someone on a critical attack. Meanwhile casters had been able to blind since level 3. Any cool capability that martial characters got, Casters had likely been able to do that same thing 10 levels earlier. I was hoping we'd see a bit of a shakeup in PF2 but so far that doesn't feel too different....

  • I admit, I haven't heard of too many accounts of "incels" going on rampages and murdering people in Europe. You guys do have your share of violence though, as well as racism and whatnot. Still, I think when we're looking at the "incel" issue and why certain young men choose to engage in mass killings, we can just as easily point towards access to weaponry, or many, many other factors, some of which you mentioned.

    Unrealistic portrayals of men and women in the media are an issue (to a degree), but I don't think it's something that drives people to engage in mass...

  • I guess the question is, was disrespectful and harmful and does it deserve to be compared to Birth of a Nation?

  • That may be an issue more with America than with media in general. There are plenty of countries in the world where women are sexualized just as much as in America (for example it's not uncommon on European TV to see topless women with the sole reason they're topless being to draw viewers) and that's on top of the American media they receive. At the same time, it doesn't seem like Europe has this same problem with "incels" that America does. So I don't know that we can necessarily point towards the sexualization of women in the media as the direct cause of "incel's". Maybe...
