Can you do tricks with the shield, like ricochet it back to you?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

In a game with talking fairy dragons and floating castles I would hope that a flute with a sharpened end wouldn't be too tall an order.

Realism is great and all but I'm more interested in fun and the cool factor. Magic makes all things possible and I bet we could all think of some cool instruments that could also serve as weapons. Why not?

Go die in a hole realism!

Can we agree that, as a class, this one in particular should get instruments that also work as weapons? Lute axe, flute dagger, etc.

I hope you introduce an entirely different kind of "axe" for this class. And if not, why not?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Howdy. As one of many poor sods not capable of attending Paizocon I thought I'd start a thread for any news rolling out of Paizocon people there are kind enough to share.

Thanks.

It has been around for a long time now and has been pointed out several times to no effect.
Balance problem are more prone to be addresed if they are martial in nature.

That's the kind of thing that makes me believe Paizo doesn't give a damn about game balance... They were eager to ban 2-handed weapon + armor spikes/unarmed strike as if it were not very underpowered, they nerfed weapon cord because a combat class was doing too much damage, then crippled CW into complete uselessness because apparently, PFS GMs can't think of "advanced" tactics such as "using ranged weapons" or "attacking the same target twice".

And yet... Paragon Surge + Expanded Arcana/Eldritch Heritage, quite possibly the most broken loophole is still there... Perfectly functional. And let's not mention the always lovely Dazing Spell metamagic feat.

You have made it very clear now in multiple posts you don't think Paizo cares about game balance. Obviously they do but you insist on arguing even when the devs come in and show you how the class balances out. At this point you're just beating a dead horse. You've made your illogical point, now move on.

Sorry guys, but my first thought was her saying "Senpai Senpai! Lets go discover ancient arcane knowledge together! Senpai I released an arcane horror onto the world >.< agoe*! (or whatever sound girls make in animes I dont know)

Really? REALLY??

Why people just can't wait to see the whole class before going in to panic mode is beyond me.

Not until they see the rest of the class they're not.

Gotta love how the one class the majority agreed was too strong got a boost.

Or you guys could wait to see what the entire class looks like before being snotty. Weird idea I know.

I want stats for that weapon and I want them NOW!

I have a question that needs answered before I can really give my input on this: By whose standards are we judging?

Are we judging by that of tabletop roleplayers? That of gamers? That of cosplayers? That of media? That of society in general?

I ask because each one of those has a different answer to the question, and quite a few of them would say yes... but why and in what way varies. But the overall answer would also say we need to change the male iconics as well... and the reason why and in what way vary here too.

I suspect their is a fair amount of mock-PC outrage mixed in with some legitimate concerns. If you were to say that you thought the art was fine then you are going to be in the vocal minority, because even if you do like them as is then you dare not say so out loud for fear of being labeled a chauvinist or something equally as bad if not worse. I've seen on these and other forums more than a few times that if you don't tote the PC company line you become a pariah.

Hurray for us old farts! I appreciate more representations of us older gamers.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I agree with everything you've just said. What worries me a little is a trend I keep seeing about the demonizing of attractive characters, and I'm not talking about just the ones that have the bikini armor. Attractive, at least based on some posts both here and on other forums, is somehow now a bad thing. Even an attractive face is problematic now to some. I do understand that not everyone feels this way but this is a trend I'm definitely not a fan of. I'm not saying every character has to be a supermodel or even all that attractive, but I do like a little moderation on both sides and hope this doesn't lean too heavily one way or another.

Jessica, does Pazio have contract female artists? If you found some good female artists I think the problem of semi clad female character drawings would go away. After all male fantasy artists pen female art drawings as their as their idealized minds see females in a Fantasy setting.

BTW the new Swashbuckler female Iconic is awesome.

Not everyone hates attractive women and men in fantasy art. I'm not saying everything has to hang out all over the place but I don't think making everyone look average and covering them head to toe in armor or clothes is something everyone wants either. Can't we find a nice middle ground?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks Jeffrey. This is exactly the kind of advice I'm looking for. I'm considering it but wasn't sure if it was worth the potential headache or not.

Your players will take it more seriously than being attacked by a Georgepeppard any day. A Georgepeppard fires a machine gun at you that only does property damage and the bullets avoid you entirely.

Hi, I'm wondering if Gestalt for a party of five would be too much of a pain for the MM AP. I've been toying with the idea of it but I'm concerned it might be over bearing. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks for answering kurt questions, btw.

Do the templates do anything funky?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

are the templates just numbers or do cool aesthetic things happen as well?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Please tell us about the Magus change. Man it sounds awesome. Is it compatible with the staff magus build?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Why is it that the people that actually get these books in advance come on just long enough to tell everyone they have the book then drop smoke pellets and disappear when we have a metric ton of questions for them?

Everyone, start throwing virtual rotten eggs immediately!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Having never run a gestalt game let me ask you those of you that have, is it a nightmare to run? I feel like it could be. I like the idea of it but I would imagine you'd have to throw some really powerful enemies at your players to make it work.

This is what Crystal wrote over in the MM2 AP product post:

"First of all, Ptemenib was originally going to be a trans man, and when I approached Rob about the idea I found out that Amber Scott had just turned over an adventure, The Worldwound Incursion, with a prominent trans woman.

All three of the appendix NPCs are bisexul, and an earlier draft of the tomb level had an encounter with the ghosts of two of Nebta-Khufre's lovers--a man and a woman--who died on the trek to Wati."

Now we already have two homosexual characters in the first book and if things had gone Crystal's way we would have had these characters as well. I'm as far out as you can get from any kind of "phobe" but this is too much. Moderation, as they, is the key.

Before I get accused of hating I want to point out that, for the record, I ran WW with the characters exactly as written and it was no big deal.

Few things in this world discourage a writer from talking to her fans quite like a bigot latching on to one or two comments to prove some ill-thought-out persecution complex.

Whoa. I thought I was pretty clear in stating that I wasn't saying don't add these kinds of characters in future books. I was simply saying that a good balance of all types of characters should be the goal. How you got bigot out of that I have no idea.

James far be it for me to tell you how to run Paizo, BUT if you don't do a follow up book to this one you are an insane person who hates money.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I like that idea. Some powers in 4th edition worked that way. You hit a certain level and your powers scale up.

"Anubis, Guardian of the Tomb, who is looking mighty sexy for the beefcake lovers out there."

If you are in to guys with dog heads you're Set. Get it? See what I did there?

Sorry, climbing back in to my hole now.

Perhaps the more important question is do we know what they look like under the wrappings?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Sold! Again, my thanks.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So perhaps that relationship might not work out. Thanks Rob for the help.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I have a question. Is Wati meant to be a base of operations for the PCs? It seems like they will be here a lot. Also, one of my players wants to make a move on Sebti. Does she feature prominently in future installments in any way that would prohibit me from allowing that relationship?

Thanks.

Odd. I have the notice from last week about getting part 2 of Mummy's Mask shipping this week but nothing was mentioned about the book. In the past they get bundled together typically. Is there a way to check and see if this is part of my subscription service?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I just ran the intro to this AP for my players and they are near the half way point of the first site. I used the history of Wati in the Wati section and paraphrased it. As for the invocation, I said the lottery started with a prayer and then went in to the actual opening fluff. No one really cared that I didn't have something more specific for that part of it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I see what you did there.

The thing I really wanted, after reading it, was more info about the other adventuring groups. A paragraph or two about the various members of those groups or interesting locals don't require stats or additional math and would have more worth to me at least.

I second that. Your writing is spot on. Like many I believe that fiction belongs in novels and not adventures. I think if a survey were conducted about what people want in the APs and gave us optional choices to the fiction I'm not sure the fiction would be the top choice.


2 people marked this as a favorite.
Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

This was the first fiction I've read that I felt was relevant. Why? Because it detailed a place I will be using in the adventure. With that said, I would prefer to toss out the fiction all together and replace it with smaller fun facts about locations in the setting that help make a place more interesting and personal to the players. It's those small details that help paint the picture of a living breathing community.

I'm also a fan of more adventure material as others have stated here. I think it would be cool to have a section dedicated to side quests. Perhaps small events that help flesh out the setting or story.
