That's right, Saya. Although, If you spend the prestige to get something, it has to all be on one item. We couldn't, for example, buy 75 acid flasks (not that we'd want to).

Also when you built your character starting out, PFS allots you 150gp to spend before you play your first scenario. So if you have any of that left, you can still spend any of that that you have remaining, in addition to the 430 from the chronicle.

Cleric of Ragathiel
Human swashbuckler

I've not got Occult Adventures but occultist don't seem to be frontliners. I suppose a Cleric of Ragathiel, built right, could be.

So, I might have to rebuild Mivvy to be a bit more frontline and drop the bard stuff.

Thoughts?


Occultist can build for what they want. And at level one, "he who has armor" is a valid frontliner.

I did not know that about occultists.

I'll wait and see then. Free rebuilds only apply at level one so I don't want to wait and see for too long.

Occultists are fairly versatile. They can fill a number of roles fairly well, but with the right implements and focuses can focus in to handle a decent variety of tasks. Abjuration and Transmutation specialists tend to scale fairly well for melee combat, and can ramp their abilities to meet their specific threats decently with spells and mental focus usage. I've seen an occultist x/urban barbarian 2 and an occultist x/Fighter 2 do some terrible things, so I'm fully confident in Drea's ability to hold the line.

Also, as we have a frontliner now, I'm going continue my original plan as the toolbox caster, and I'd like to get some opinions on that.

My end goal is to go Oracle 1/Arcanist 2/Mystic Theurge 10, probably reverting back to arcanist if we progress beyond level 13, and take advantage of two spell lists, quick study, the spells and skills of summoned monsters, and a fair number of wands, scrolls, and divination and utility items to make sure that you guys are always equipped with just that one trick that would have made things that much easier for you. I'll likely stock up on buffs and utility spells, and the occasional battlefield control spell (where a save isn't super vital), but if there's anything that will be exceptionally useful to anyone in the group. I'd like to know so that I can be sure to pick it up once I start moving to expand my spell selection. I also plan on eventually getting an improved familiar so that I can have low level wand spells cast in the same round that I'm casting higher level buffs or utility spells.

I won't always have the highest level spells for someone of our level, because of the delayed progression in two slightly slower progressing classes. I won't get 2nd level spells until level 5, but I should keep fairly close to the standard arcanist curve after that. That being said, I expect to be able to throw spells around like candy. Virog will have around 25+ spell slots at level 6, and 45+ at level 10, before wands, scrolls, or spell recovery items, so don't worry about asking me to prepare spells that wouldn't go on most standard loadouts.

All of that being said, while we've got all the time in the world to think about it. What sort of stuff will you guys need/want in terms of buffs and utility spells, that you expect that your characters in specific would benefit from?

For me, dex buffs are more useful than the classic combat buffs.

This being PFS, things to help deal with swarms are good too.

Greetings all. I was picked to be the latest member for this merry adventure. Cleric of Ragathiel and Human raised by Halflings, Jordas!


My question for you Virog is how you intend to get level 2 casting for yourself without taking the proper number of levels? The trait that grants +2 CL will not get you effective levels of casting, and will not get you into MT any faster. How does that work?

Hi Jordas, just had a peak at your sheet: did you know that clerics of Ragathiel get proficiency in bastard sword?

Also drawbacks/flaws are not PFS legal, I think.

Ragathiel does not grant the travel domain Ragathiel's granted domains are here and I'm not sure how you got bloodline arcana? Also, you're entitled to a second domain.

more useful info here


Indeed, please make sure your character follows the guidelines of the Pathfinder Society as outlined in the roleplaying guild guide that Mivvy linked.

Grand Lodge

Yeah, I was doing some clean up on my sheet as it was a hold over from another game I failed to get into. Been updating it since I made that initial greeting. Should all be squared away now.

The feat Equipment Trick (Sunrod) from the Pathfinder Society Field Guide grants you the ability to use the Like The Sun trick, which increases the spell level of all spells with the light descriptor by one, allowing several first level spells to qualify as second level spells (my plans were Dancing Lantern and Unwelcome Halo).

That then meets the requirements of casting second level spells when you take into account this developer clarification.

I will definitely acknowledge that it is not a standard method of entry. But with the spell-like ability methods of early entry for mystic theurge all closed now due to a rules change, this is the only one that remains PFS legal.


Okay. Well that is an interesting way to feat into that, but I can hardly point fingers as I used "Extra Sneak Attack" to get into Arcane Trickster with only a 1-dip. Thanks for the explanation and I think I had remembered seeing that before, it was just a different way.


Waiting on Jordas and Saya in the game thread to move it along.

Sure. What's the sash do? And I don't mind as long as we get it out of the way before I tell you what's about to eat your various faces.

The sash is a way to have 6+ extra pockets. Great for spellcasters or anyone who wants lots of little objects.

I've just worked out my encumberance and it turns out that I left my noble's outfit and sash at home...

Str 10 is not great for anyone wearing armour. Mivvy needs mithral the moment she can afford it.


Agreed. Same for a Haversack.

Is it anywhere near as frustrating to read Virog's accent as it is to type it? Writing out accents phonetically is not a thing I am used to.

His manner of speech is only a slight exaggeration of my own. Just a few extra contractions, borrowing from coworkers and the like.

Hey there, Mivvy. I'll happily Aid Another on your Diplomacy check, but I don't think I should be the primary. (+0 to Diplomacy). Cool?


Ergo why I say words like "coordinate on a check". :)

Yeah, but you want to follow the procedure that will work out better 80% of the time.
