Get to know Ryan and Perram’s gaming preferences like never before!

Recently, Pathfinder developer Owen KC Stephens started posting Questions For Your RPG Group to his personal blog. He’s posting these in increments of 10. There are 40 so far, of a scheduled 100. Perram and Ryan will be asking questions from this list, as well as the as-of-yet unpublished questions 41-50 in a supersized banter segment.

Before Perram joined Know Direction as the show’s first full time co-host, the podcast could have best been describe as a bunch of Pathfinder RPG stuff. Perram brings a knowledge of and love for Golarion to Know Direction, something any Pathfinder podcast is lacking without. On top of being a man on the pulse of the Pathfinder campaign setting, Perram is the founder of the superlative site for Pathfinder spellcasters, Perram’s Spellbook, a free web application that creates customized spell cards.

    I agree with Ryan on the X-Men (2000). It’s kinda painful to watch now. The writing is pretty bad as well as some of the line delivery. The action is also pretty weak. I re-watched it recently and I barely got through it. X2 is still the best Xmovie IMHO.

    • In my humble opinion, X2 is secretly a terrible movie that has tricked everyone into thinking it was good. It starts out with high hopes, Nightcrawler, Magneto’s escape, the mansion fight, and then what? While the scene with Bobby’s parents ads some perspective. But then what, the team breaks up into smaller groups and has weird fights and confrontations? The villain’s plan is to kill all mutants in their minds… that just doesn’t play on a screen. Magneto and the brotherhood are mostly there for the ride. The whole final third of the film is weird clippy vignettes. Really once his plans had been foiled Stryker should have pulled a lever to release a prototype sentinel or something, had the whole team fight it, the dam gets broken Jean dies saving everyone, etc. I know no one is going to agree with me, and it still might be the best of the franchise.

    As an 80’s kid, I was 13 in 1984, the themes of a lot of those movies that Perram shakes his head at were very accurate for that time. It’s a theme that’s reflected in a lot of the music of the time as well. I’m not sure how you could have grown up in the 80’s and not have at least understood the context of those themes. There’s a reason why Hip-Hip really grew the way it did in the 80’s, there’s a reason why the punk scene existed as it did in the 80’s. it’s easy to shake your head at it after ther the fact, but there’s a reason why that attitude was prevalent. It didn’t develop in a vacuum…

  3. Hey Perram, You had mentioned in the episode that you had links to pics of your game room. where would I find those I’m totally jonesing to scope it out.
