Can a necomancer control crude oil, seeing as it used to be living organic matter?

I'm new to table top gaming and have only ever played pathfinder. If pathfinder is supposed to be crappy what is the next best thing running a similar amount of classes and feats. Something that includes archtypes too would be great.

Planning a sandbox game

Planning a sandbox game 1 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Sup, /tg/. I'm first-time DMing Pathfinder for some friends next Saturday, and I need some advice. I had a simple, vanilla 4-session-or-so campaign planned out that I'm pretty happy with, based on my experience with PFS. It had bandits, ancient macguffins, undead wizards, and demon-binding nobles. The classic stuff when you think of DnD; we're all pretty green, and I didn't want to scare anyone off with weird shit session 1. I was with these friends a few days ago and they said they would probably derail any campaign I had in pursuit of ale and wenches. I decided to scrap my generic campaign, now that I know what motivates them. They will now be confined to a city state where the puritanical Lord Baron has outlawed all intoxicants. The idea is that they will get roped in to a moonshining gang, and be involved in Prohibition style shenanigans. Running kegs of ale off the coast, gang wars, evading authorities and corrupting officials will all likely be featured. The thing is, since it is so open ended, and the players have basically told me they're not going to stick to a script, I have no idea how to plan such an open campaign. I have a nebulous idea of the first session, and I've been doing research on the Prohibition, but I don't know where to take it. Should I plot out the major factions, their members and intentions, and wait for the PCs to run into them? Should I just plan the next session after each session is done, since the PCs will be so unpredictable? Am I overthinking it all? Yes. Is Pathfinder the wrong game to use? Yes. Is the Prohibition thing a good idea? How do you plan a sandbox campaign?

Good gods I love Numenera! Any good storys my fellow /TG/ brethren?

Hi /tg/. My DM is sick but since my group can meet so rarely, I decided that I'll animate a quick session of Call of Cthulhu. Usually I'm the DM so I'm not asking for advice, but I've got only a day to think about a scenario, do any of you have a site or pdf for short-medium sessions of CoC ? (any edition, I can adapt) And Francis if you read this, leave this thread immediatly.

How do you feel when a character puts the rest of the party in the danger because it fits with their character? For instance, a situation where there is little to no hope of it going that way the character think it will, it will probably put everyone is deep shit/get them killed, and everyone knows this out of game, but the player does it anyway because it's inline with the character

The canon of oWoD is that medieval humans almost wiped out vampires. How? Modern humans have better weapons and much weaker vampires. How did people who thought windmills were cutting edge technology fight seventh gen vampires or whatever? For that matter, if Caine has been around since the beginning of man, how are we only on gen thirteen? We should be well into the thousands.

You are Sireyi Valyenya, 18 years old, you are on your first quest. You have retrieved the Horn of Alzurad: a legendary artefact that can call dead heroes back to fight for the holder of the Horn. But now you’re lost on another plane, trying to find your way home. Previous thread >>34004995 “You really are stressed” you say “how can I help?” Ellahi slams the folder full of paper down on her desk “By doing the DAMNED tasks I’ve asked you too!” Then she folds her arms, looks down and pinches the bridge of her nose “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to sound like that. It’s just been busy recently.” “How much medicine is she taking Angelique?” you ask “Not enough” says Angelique, thrusting the bottle and sppon at Ellahi, who gives her a dirty look before taking two spoonfuls. “About your health...” you say to Ellahi. “My health is fine!” she snaps. “You said the doctors had revised their prognosis?” you say “And they’ll revise it again” she says “It’s not important.” “How long?” you ask “I said: it’s not important” says Ellahi, grinding the last words out through gritted teeth. “Two weeks until the damage is irreversible, 1 month until she’s bed-bound, 2 months until eventual death” says Angelique, in her emotionless voice. Ellahi glares at her and the two lock gazes for a minute or two. “Happy?” says Ellahi to you “Now, I’ve got somewhere to be” and she storms out.

Hey. Hey /tg/ What class/race combo would work best for an increasingly unstoppable armored juggernaut character in 4e? Preferably martial, but I'll take whatever.

Homebrew Lore thread

Ah, good afternoon my friend, I am Nazim. Treacherous weather afoot, I do not fault you for seeking shelter in this cave, as I have. Come, there is a fire to dry you, and wine to revive you. While you are here, I am wondering, have you any tales to tell? You see, I am a Loreweaver, I collect mythology and legends and record the practices of cultures throughout the world. It seems, even in weather such as this, my curiosity is insatiable! So come, share the tales and stories of your worlds and characters, the gods they worship, the empires they serve, anything! All is appreciated, though I ask it be of your own design. A loreweaver has no use for syndicated lore.

I'm trying to run a game of pathfinder set in the golden age of piracy, and I'm encountering a significant problem with regards to the expense of firearms. While I do want gunslinger feats and gun smithing to be guild secrets closely guarded, I'm not sure i can justify having a pirate crew spend double-digits in gold whenever they shoot their weapons. The bigger issue is ship cannons, which are stupidly expensive to fire a single one let alone a broadside salvo. So, I ask if anyone here has a pricing recommendation on pathfinder firearms for a golden age of piracy game. It's a fairly low-magic setting if that helps - the crew has a single NPC caster who mostly handles weather and blessings for the crew. Everyone wanted to play rogues and corsairs for some reason.

"Hello, I'm Bob Ross, and I'd like to welcome you. First of all let me take just a moment to thank you for attending my class. If this is your first time with us let me extend a personal invitation for you to drag out your corpses and magic powder and join us today. Now today we're going to be raising a fairly simple form of undead called a ghoul. Remember that anybody can work necromancy, it just takes a lot of practice."

Sup /tg/. Are there any places still around where I can find D&D 3.5 adventure PDF's or are they all gone since WotC has decided to start selling their formerly free PDF's? I'll bump with maps and locations should I run out of maps.
