Mostly he's pretty handcuffed by talent and recent usage. It just makes me mad he KEEPS sending Givens out for 4 or 5 outs. It's rarely worked.

I'm still shocked that Givens wasn't moved

Did you play pathfinder back in the day, or was it just base DND? 

Dude, Pathfinder came out in 2009.

As for which version I played, it was Advanced.  Actually we started with Basic and Expert and cobbled together campaigns as the group of us collected the various rule books.

I still have the original version Deities and Demigods somewhere. (had two mythos they had to remove).

Yeah, I know. It is something to keep an eye on going forward, but probably a trust issue thing. Sometimes, he gives the hook too early and sometimes, it's too late. Of course, he is new at this himself. Not really criticizing him, though.

Gotta get value back. More than we have WITH him. I think we all overrate him. He's great as a 7th, 8th inning guy. As a closer not so much...

I didn't know that it did, then again I didn't feel like looking it up. That's cool, and we kind of did the same thing. All depended on who was DM. Pathfinder is fun, but you get railroaded pretty quickly if the DM's story sucks. That's awesome you still have the original book. Buddy has one stashed at his house somewhere too.

Probably. A lot of teams who are competing like boston have thin farm systems too, so that might explain the lack of movement.

I didn't even know Pathfinder was a thing until the video game came out.  I was pre-forgotten realms.

Same could be said of Buck. A grizzled vet.

    • You are welcome. You call it condescension, I call it factual truth.
    • I can't imagine the Angelos' are in much of a giving mood after losing the MASN court battle with MLB.  Unfortunately the little guys will pay the price.
    • Plus he gets a chance to stick it to the Steelers at least twice a year.
    • We’re 2-4 in mine. Do you know how we can get Mancini back in the sim? Will he be back at some point this season or can we make it happen? I couldn’t find him in the game but I’m still learning it and may have missed an injured list or something. 
    • More testing of the treatments will be a benefit in the long run - whether it be the combination of Chloroquine and Z-pack or something else.  Get the treatment out there and it will reduce quarantine times and make the virus manageable.  Then work on the vaccine that could actually come in the fall.  It is being fast-tracked more so than in the past. https://katu.com/news/coronavirus/fast-track-coronavirus-vaccination-request-to-go-to-fda-for-approval
    • This is a tough one. Ever since we drafted Hollywood I've thought AB signing with us could be a possibility. AB has not been the same since he took the vicious hit in the Bengals game.  Why ? Concussion? I can't remember what the diagnosis was after that game.  It almost seems like a storybook ending for AB if he goes to the castle and meets with the Ravens top brass and I mean top brass from Bisciotti to Cass to Harbaugh to DeCosta to Ozzie and Lamar. Bisciotti has said he would like to copy or be like the Steelers and certainly would be if they signed AB.  Would other vets like Thomas and Campbell be able to keep him straight?  In some ways I can see us being the perfect fit for him. We have a great clubhouse and somehow Harbaugh is able to click with players.  He praises them and makes them feel important. AB definitely needs stroking and praise due to his huge ego. Big Ben and Tomlin didn't stroke him and didn't click. Gruden and him didn't click but that was no surprise and the Pats clubhouse was probably like walking on eggshells with Bill B in charge. If the top guys talk to him and are comfortable I am comfortable.  I can see in a way Lamar and him clicking with Hollywood around. He knows what it's like playing at M & T and probably is smart enough to know he could make our solid offense even better. Super Bowl ?
