All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: RPGs, comic books, Firefly, RPGs, Community, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, RPGs, Avengers, Doctor Who, And RPGs. And comic books. And RPGS. Not a "fandom" blog, unless D&D alignments count as a fandom.
I love pirates because they have no concept on albeism. oh you have no leg? here have a peg leg. no hand?? well guess we gotta put a hook on that, give those sons of bitches a surprise. Blind in one eye, put an eyepatch on no one fucking cares, youre deaf??? go man the canons you glorious bastard.They dont care if youre disabled bcus as long as you can fuck shit up they literally dont fucking care.
I never thought about it this way. This is beautiful.
Okay, this is going to inspire a new aspect of the pirate fleets in my campaign setting.
I’m actually running a pirate-themed one-shot adventure for a “Wounded Warriors" fundraiser with this exact philosophy.

I’m super lucky in that I have so many friends and mutuals on here who are wonderful players and DMs. They’re always sharing stories and it’s fun and great.
but the thing is you just don’t see it a lot. I’ve heard horror stories from my friends about being bullied by DMs and players, outright denied any information to play, told wrong dates, chastised for not knowing x information. I was once given shit in a book store for buying Pathfinder material.
It’s a really poisonous atmosphere and it needs to stop.
Do better nerds. We’ve got to do better.
While I’m SUPPOSED to be a productive member of society, I was instead reading this
And I realize that most GMs with an old school backgroudn will see it and go “Hey, you know what we should play?”
But me, I was thinking. See, I recently saw a pretty darn good movie, the likes of which haven’t been in theaters for a long time.
Wait, no. Not that one, the OTHERawesome movie of a long forgotten genre in the West.
There we go! So I saw this thing here, and I loved it. And I have that sweet, sweet Technology Guide. And that got me thinking.
How do we take this?
and make it into a cooler, newer version of this?
Because that movie I saw, it made me hooked on a feeling.
And now I’m high on believing in PFRPG
So using this as inspiration
And some of this
and a good chunk of this
some zest from this
and a sprinkle of this
and for good measure some this
and some of this
and with some help from the PFd20SRD and the PRD
I want to make this
At least for fun.
The PCs did not appreciate the artful well-endowed woman on one of our tokens. However, the midst of battle they suddenly decided they needed some help, “Hey, Tits McGee, do you have any spells that could help us with this??”
Until she turned out to be a shapechanger she was called Tits McGee. /dm facepalm
Please tell me she proceeded to shapechange into a dragon and kill them all for being asshats.
So I just sent out an email to the 7 players in my new Pathfinder campaign I mentioned previously. Of those 7 players, 4 are girls and 3 are guys. While most of the girls have played one-shot adventures here and there before, only my wife has been in a long-term game before.
I had to send them an email introducing them to roleplaying & Pathfinder, as well as to my campaign specifically. Lots of folks were really interested in my campaign idea, so I thought I’d share the message I sent out to get the ball rolling…
Thanks for the praise & the ask. It’s a rather interesting question I’ve been mulling over. Keeping in mind my definition of “Lawful” (holding oneself to an externally-defined code), it would largely depend on the relationship with who is setting the standard for that code. There are three entities involved, and the result depends on the interplay between them. Those three entities are the Lawful Good character (LG for short), the object of Suspicion (OoS), and whoever is the writer of law (WoL) in question.
I would say there are 3 possible interpretations:
So there you have it. Three possibilities, some of the Lawful Good, some of them Chaotic Good. To me, the telling difference isn’t so much the Lawful Good character themself, but rather the Writer of Law. If the establisher of the external code actually is good, then it’s very straightforward. If not, then I’d leave it up to the GM, but for me there’s a strong case to be made for the character becoming chaotic.
