Just saw the preview for Fox's version of Broadchurch, Grace Point. I was not aware that David Tennant was reprising his role for it. Color me intrigued.

So, got my copy of the 5th Edition Player's Handbook. I'm liking it quite a bit. Still think the healing rules need work. But then we've known that since I said so in every single playtest. Not sure I'll use a sharpie on the book and post it to YouTube yet, but I'm kinda tempted to do just that. These healing rules just really - suck. They're horrifically skewed. As to the rest, I'm liking it. It's not bloated, and we're off to a good start. Love the modular design, and it's not going to take me long to start designing my own paths for the classes, some new backgrounds, and maybe some feats.

Cool article. I've been playing for more than 30 years. Influenced? Oh yeah. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/14/books/dungeons-dragons-has-influenced-a-generation-of-writers.html?_r=1

I want this. For many reasons.
This powerful, sensor-fitted cup identifies what you're drinking and tells you how it affects your health and hydration needs.

Only a few surprises here.
Here’s how I played in 2014. How did you play? spotify.com/2014 #Spotify2014

I've come to realize that these slightly modified character sheets are woefully bad for holding all of the info you need to play any of the races. I've had to print out the races for the players so they have their abilities, and reserve space on the sheet for the choice based options. I think we either need a new sheet, or we need playbooks, or players will need a copy of their race info in front of them to play.

I like the playbooks idea. I think we could definitely make something like that work, since the race is so intimately tied to the overall play. Thanks!

To the surprise of some, and no surprise to many others, I have determined Pathfinder has seriously lost its way, and it is no longer something I can actively support in any fashion. The system has become overly bloated with more options than can be handled with exceedingly poor organization of the information presented. And I have begun to lend some credence to the theory that the staff of Paizo have begun to purge their forums and reviews to eliminate negative reviews and signs of players' and GMs' discontent with the game in any shape or form. I have personally seen multiple threads just disappear, and several posts that didn't violate the terms of use either disappear or be replaced by a community rep's post about not violating the forum terms. Several one and two star reviews have disappeared after I read them, and some posters have taken to using spoiler tags to hide their opinions to avoid bans and lost posts. The company itself has been giving out horrible mixed messages about brick and mortar support over the years, to the extent it's hard to tell what they really want. They remain the only company that I know of that makes their GMs actually pay for adventures for their organized play program, and I feel that's just sad and pathetic. The game has grown entirely out of bounds, and I've decided that whatever settings I may have put into the system, will no longer be. I have instead decided to put my support where it belongs. I plan to actively support D&D 5th Edition, FATE Core, and 13th Age. It's my hope that Paizo can right its course, but until then, I have to step back and look away. Lo, how the mighty will fall, and their ivory tower with it. We'll see what happens after the dust finally settles. Anyone who thinks that Pathfinder isn't going to eventually fall apart needs only to look to history to know it's true. It's desperately in need of major fixing that I suspect only a new edition can correct. But even with one, until the company can take a step back and let people's opinions be heard, it won't matter.
