'Jə - 'ə'

Discussion  - 
 
I had an idea for some special weapons that could grow with the characters, and was wondering what you think.

At the base level they would be weapon handles that when activated would conjure the rest. For example a handle that generates a sword blade, or bow that when drawn generates an arrow.

The handles would have slots in them (probably around three) that accept rings and give a similar or opposite effect. For example:
Force shield - makes damaging end made of force, similar to ghost touch.
Protection +n - gives weapon +n enhancement bonus.
Energy resistance - gives weapon elemental damage. Maybe minor fire resistance flaming and major flame burst (not sure what greater would do in this case), or else straight bonuses (maybe halve it to 5, 10 and 15).

Other rings should be easy enough to work out for various effects.

+Bryan Hartley  I figured it would be a way for things to be useful for longer, and have players grow attached to items instead of throwing them out for the next (incrementally) best thing.

Additionally, I know a GM that makes it much harder to actually find someone that would enchant a weapon than buy a ring.

+'Jə - 'ə' socket-ed is always better... have my docking-station/notebook in a side-shelf above my head and the PC on some "table" from a couch (while only the PC housing has a air-filter). whenever I have programming problems, can literally claim "that's above my head" :)

Are there any equivalents to gellcaps in the Pathfinder setting, and what would you expect the outcome to be from ingesting dust of dryness?

A magical pill that has an instant death spell cast on it.

Fatigue or not fatigue?

Has anyone ever come across or come up with an explanation for the Elder Scrolls green bar?

It seems it took five games before they started calling it stamina. Has anyone been able to justify running out of fatigue causing fatigued behavior?

While trying to find a native way to get the Start Menu at work I once again ponder why MS chose the names they did, and why they didn't try saving Vista from being another dirty word (like twilight).

Anyone else think this might have gone over better?
Vista (6.0)
Vista SE (6.1)
Vista Touch (6.2)
Vista Touch SE (6.3)
Vista Fuck;My Bad (6.4)

That last one really is inevitable, what with the character stepping.

Thought I'd pop on the LEGO store online to pick up some minifigures (this would be the best place to find them, yes?) for tabletop gaming, and it turns out they have what appears to be less available than from say walmart.com, and over half of that is not available.

WTF guys? I remember there being sooooo much more when I received magazines in the 90's and 00's.

Yes, well, I can't very well make a half-orc paladin or halfling bard out of PS3 disc covers. Especially fitting in a square inch space.

It's recently come to my attention that Linksys is retarded, in that they force you to connect to a remote server in order to log in to your local hardware.

Does anyone have any suggestions for any good routers that don't follow such practices?

Has anyone ever found anything that broke the game?

I remember making potions that eventually were so strong the time went from in-game years to plain dropping off the description. Nothing says game spoilers quite like having strength so high it shows as negative, and likewise increasing agility means you can never jump outdoors again.

I have a new character work flow where you have 1k gold, exquisite ring, mushrooms and flowers needed when leaving to Balmora, blow through the first block of Mage's Guild in one visit, join everything else and grab conjuration/teleportation spells, world hop for ten minutes culminating in having Azura's Star and both Daedra and Golden Saint summons before second level.

I found some issues with the formulas in Combat. Useful data:
Paladin 3 levels
Strength 20
Dexterity 16
Feat - Power Attack
Feat - Dodge
+1 Breastplate
+1 Buckler
MW Longsword

Buckler unequipped, Longsword one-handed
Actual
Atk 7
Dm 5
AC 21
Power Attack
Atk 6
Dm 7
AC 21

Expected
Atk 9

Atk 8

Guessing at issues since I can't find a report would be:
1 - BAB used is 1 instead of 3 in all cases (lvl 3 Pal)
2 - one-handed weapon wielded in two hands should be treated as two-handed weapon for StrMod to damage and Power Attack damage
3 - full implementation of Buckler includes +0 AC and -1 Attack when wielding with off hand (two-handed weapon, one-handed wielded two hands, one-handed/light in off hand, bow/crossbow)
EDIT: on second thought I think the Buckler AC should be limited to dropping natural AC not magical bonuses, or perhaps just retain non +n enhancements.
