Sitting around and being STOKED at the idea of pathfinder happening.

I might be as psyched as Lucas was.

Probably doing more spreadsheets on my character's inventory and how to spend that starting dosh.

A solid platinum throne.

Like, why are you even considering ANY other options?

Well let's think. 50 coins to a pound, you start with 6K GP, which is 600 PP, which comes to 12 pounds of platinum. Density of platinum is approx. 21.5 grams per cubic centimeter... 1 cubic centimeter is approx. 0.061 cubic inches, and 1 gram is approximately 0.0022 pounds. So that comes out to a density of 0.775 pounds per cubic inch.

Okay, so at 12 pounds, that comes out to 9.3 cubic inches, so yeah, you'd need more money. That's not even enough for a hollow throne--though you could definitely get it plated in platinum. Let's try a gold throne instead.

Same rules, except you don't divide by 10 to convert to platinum, and gold is 19.31 g/ml. So you've got 120lbs of gold, which comes out to... okay my math has to be wrong, it says we get only 4.32 cubic inches, which is half the platinum value. I clearly fucked up somewhere...

Yeah. Wolfram Alpha suggests 120lbs of gold to be in the ballpark of 172 cubic inches. So yeah, you would need a lot more money... I still say the solution, then, is to not spend any gold and save all your money, until you can in fact buy that platinum throne.

For my own personal knowledge (as this is now a goal I will try to accomplish if I ever play a long-term campaign). Let's estimate a throne at about 7 feet high, with a 5-foot square base. That'd be 302,400 cubic inches, which would convert to 211,000 pounds of gold (estimated price 10.55 million GP), or 234,340 pounds of platinum (estimated price 117.17 million GP).

I'm still gonna fucking make it happen because fuck you all.

I've never seen the show, but I often imagine that it's about people doing math to figure out how to build thrones out of various precious metals. It's no wonder it's so popular.

That'd be my guess. Especially considering like, 75% of The Old Gang is coming back for what essentially amounts to Round Two Electric Boogaloo.

I may have to weave in some story about how Vincent and/or Armok at least had a hand in why magic is no bueno. Because let's face it. Would YOU trust your kids with magic in a post-Vincent world?

This is an entirely different galaxy at least. Possibly another universe.

even if it was the same universe (it's not) it'd be a PRE-vincent world, not post. Sol wrote up the shizzle wizzle of this universe many years ago.

I told myself that this time I would make a character with no S&M overtones at all. Somehow I ended up with a professional dominatrix.

I screwed up somewhere, guys.

It's not that you screwed up, it's more that your originally stated goal was foolish, futile, and just not as fun, and you subconsciously figured that out in the process.

So yeah I am hoping we can all get together this evening at around 6 or 7 EST to kick this off. We can spend the time discussing characters and how you all met, or if you have all that stuff in order we can start actually playing.

McDohl, if you're still interested in trying to participate when you can you're welcome to join too.

(If you don't have that stuff in order yet still want to try getting to the actual game tonight, most everyone is already here.)

that's a very nice EMPTY QUOTE you have there

and because off the way the forum works I can't even look at the raw post data to see where your syntax goofed, or alternatively if you just flubbed and didn't actually put any text in the quote whatsoever.

It's not an empty quote. It's just an image that can't be hotlinked. Right-click where it should be and open it in a new tab.

Lemme add my own quote, then.

Quote:
19:55:31] <Roland> I almost want to try the stealth roll just to see if it'd work.
[19:55:32] <Calandra> I can also totally dimensional slide behind someone I see and it's too bad I don't have any rogue levels or sneak attack for ridiculous damage!
[19:55:42] <Roland> Is there any penalty for failing?
[19:55:47] <@GMSolitayre> Not really, no
[19:55:58] <Roland> Screw it then.
[19:56:01] <Roland> !roll 1d20-3
[19:56:02] <GameServ> Roland rolled 1d20: 1 <Total: 1(-3) = -2>
[19:56:06] <Roland> ...
[19:56:06] <@GMSolitayre> CLANK CLANK CLANK
[19:56:07] <Tharzak> rofl
[19:56:08] <@Wandomi> wow
[19:56:09] <Calandra> You are the loudest mother fucker ever

[a minute later]

[19:57:19] <Roland> Oh hey, stealth gets a -5 while moving at normal speed.
[19:57:25] <Roland> So my roll was actually a -7!
[19:57:36] <@GMSolitayre> Roland trips over every rock on the way up the mountain
[19:57:43] <@GMSolitayre> And it gets louder every time

Even worse better: He's in full plate armor, so full that nothing underneath it is visible.
