    Sam is a great gamer and I’m looking forward to seeing what she brings to the table as DM. Although I’m solidly in the 4e/5e camp, I am curious about the Pathfinder/3e take on D&D.I’m looking forward to this arc now after hearing this episode.

    Is Sam Critical Hit’s first female GM? It seems like it from what I’ve heard, but I still haven’t listened to every downtime episode.

    I cannot wait for this campaign. Can’t wait for Sam to GM and Rodrigo to play. If Rodrigo plays in this campaign, but my guess is yes.

    Have you considered using the touch AC / armor-as-damage-reduction rules?
    They are included in the core Pathfinder rule book but don’t seem to get a lot of attention.

      I’m not a fan of those rules. I find many players, myself included, have a hard time keeping track of DR. At low levels it can also make any monster that naturally has damage reduction nearly impossible to hurt.
