You've done well there, Geoff. And I think it's amazincool that they player d&d.
Our next gaming session was set up by Son, who contacted all of his friends and made it happen.  I was very proud of him.  He has made mention of having his own gamer group.  Fantastic!  I was looking forward to running the g...

Whoah! Series crossover. Morale: Never pick up small wooden boxes at bars? Don't use duct tape for pentagrams?

Love the series!

Game Mastering  - 
 
[Pathfinder] Two of my players don't like magic items. One of them thinks it's too much of a shopping spree and is bored whenever the other players get down to catalogue and dwell on the phat loot they get. The other player didn't feel that treasure was right for his monk character and the Vow of Poverty was too lenient for him.

In both cases, I let the players turn their characters into gestalt classes - monk/inquisitor in one case, fighter/monk in the other - and with a rule that they could own nothing. The fighter/monk has a regular off-the-rack greatsword as her only possession, while the monk/inquisitor has nothing. 

It seems to work. Possessions and magic are an integral part of the power level of a PC, and the gestalt mechanic makes them just as powerful (maybe a smidgen more) than their christmas tree allies.

The monk/inquisitor has run like that for three levels, while the fighter/monk has just been made. We'll see how it works for her. 

This might also be a viable solution for campaigns where treasure should be hard to come by.

The Midnight campaign setting does something similar with the heroic paths they offer. Might be worth a look if the gestalt thing ends up being broken somehow.

The setting is inherently low magic, so every character gets one.

90 minutes in the gym yesterday. 53 minutes of cardio totalling 1250 kcal. Pace was a bit lighter, and I still accomplished more in terms of calorie burn. Interesting. Then some weights. Best training in a long time. Sure beats the 45 minutes I get to do on Wednesdays. Thank god for my 5-mile bike trip to work every day!

This was pretty formative for my visualization of my first d&d sessions

As an arcade game, it was horribly overpriced. The app is reasonable and fun.
