When are wizards going to get the buffs they deserve? You have fighters doing shit on par with Greek gods and monks who can create demiplanes just by meditating hard enough, yet wizards have zero utility. Anything that a wizard can do, another class can just flatout do better as well.

3E was the worst for this, what with only being able to cast 1 fireball per week and having to prep sacrifices and reagents for hours, but 5E leveled the playing field nicely. Now it only take 10 minutes per level to cast a spell and there's even one 3rd level spell that does 3d6 damage. Sick stuff, casters should be happy now.

I'm writing up a homebrew where archwizards can even cast "level 4" spells. Unofficial, of course.

Upon entry the place is packed with -and I am fully serious here- meme lifters, Burnell jumps, nippple cries, zombie fuckers, the whole deal.
Only thing free is a squat rack, but I want OHP. Fine, I’ll ohp in squat rack.

Start working out and some girl comes up to me, asking if I could go back in time and get i the day is the bestselling day after the work church is in going into o on a date day.

She’s kinda cute with her hoodie on and her baggy clothes. So I tell her he’s the man and she I don’t know have how what I say and to I.

Ff to lunch time that day, gym cafeteria is empty so we take out date there and start crunching the monkey.

We should have male space marines. Why should it be an all-female institution? Even if we buy into the WG excuse that the empress needed complete XX chromosomes to make the primarchs, she is still the goddamn empress. Males make just as much sense as female space marines, they would be all so pumped up in hormones to matter.

As for the "they are supposed to take inspiration on nuns and sororities, which did not allow males and called each other sisters", I think we crossed that line when they became super-armored darkgrim futuristic space nuns.

And fulgrim did nothing wrong.

They used to in V1 and Arneson Beige Book, also called Traditional D&D (TD&D).

But then in the 90s women activists started complaining and saying "It's not fair, men can be just as handsome as women!" and they removed those bits.

I've never seen those and they're not in any of the monster manuals from editions V1 to V6, so I doubt you'll be able to find them here or online.

Why is Purple/Green allowed to be such an op color combination? They just send everything to the top of the opponent's library and then cast it to gain control.
Meanwhile, Blue/Yellow can't do shit. All Yellow does is turn everything into 3/3 Beasts and play fogs without a single good wincon except Venser, Resident of Eternity.
Also the Niv-Mizzet planeswalker is fucking insane. Why does nobody play it?

Its entirely right and appropriate for people to use Guard units in their marine lists. It's great to see people use them to get endless command points. Especially with the Aquila and Grand Strategist. That's a well balanced army right there
>>
>>61988450
>Also the Niv-Mizzet planeswalker is fucking insane. Why does nobody play it?
Mana cost is too low. You'll only be able to play it super early game, at which point it'll just be murderfucked by any aggro deck (which is basically all of them).
Fuck aggro, and fuck Boros, overpowered bullshit.

I splash Purple to tax my opponents lands and vanillize creatures. I don't jam Niv-Mizzet down until the late game against aggro, or I cash in his loyalty to flashback a boardwipe if I happen to have another in my hand.

I know. Critical Role is a fantastic representation of the tabletop community. My group is JUST like them. I was so excited when one of our players wanted to try a game in the style of Critical Role.

I don't think Paizo gets enough credit.

They did so many great things for the industry. Like when they fixed all the issues in D&D 3.5e and released Pathfinder, an almost flawless game, that added tons of unique and interesting ideas instead of just re-releasing 3.5e with the serial numbers filed off. Not to mention their great quality over quantity approach.

You can see this with Starfinder, I was worried they would barely play test it and then rush it for GenCon in a broken state, but I was wrong. They took their time with it and everything worked right out of the box.

And the Pathfinder 2 playtest release was even better, I'm glad they hired on extra professional game designers and came up with some unique stuff instead of just stealing ideas from D&D 4e and 5e.

And the Pathfinder community is so welcoming, especially on the Paizo forums. Everyone there is so open minded and the developers are very professional, always keeping their cool even when pressured or asked any questions.

What? When did they start adding Intersectional cards?
