Taking a break from the previous postings on the character creation for playtesting, as that’s a boring subject matter that most people won’t care about anyway.  :)

My current Pathfinder/D&D Hybrid game is drawing to a close soon (probably this month) and, as usual, I’m charged with figuring out just what the hell is going on in that campaign world.

Oh yeah, and did I mention that almost all of these were caused by player actions?
