Did you see Erik Mona's post here?

Uhm, no. I guess that covers my comments. Thanks Erik.

And add me to the list admiring Wayne Reynold's art.

Liz forgive me, but a comment on cheesecake clothing:
Seoni's clothes make sense for a Varisian, tattoed, high charisma, sorceress raised on a traveling caravan. NPC Codex-295. As a bookworm, psychic, from a family of bureaucrats in Vudra learning her role as a mahatma, cheesecake clothing doesn't work for Rivani.

So I approve of Wayne Reynold's choices on both.

Valeros, for example, I understand.
Like Valeros is hard to understand?

Maybe I can identify with Valeris more?

For all of Rivani's evocative back story (as opposed to an evoker's backstory), I wish we had more of an inside look at her personality. What does she feel about the events happening to her? Erik's write for Zadim the iconic slayer, for example, is a great example of what I'm thinking of.

Very nice. I do wish it had something on Rivani's reaction to her abilities and trials. Disgust, awe, simple acceptance? I know what she's been through, but not what makes her tick. Valeros, for example, I understand.

Remember, spell combat and spell strike are limited to spells from the magus spell list. UM - 9-10.

Personally, I think you're losing too much. Better to have a few extra high level cleric spells than spell combat.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Not core as per the OP. (But thanks for pointing out the Shield Trained trait, I have a character in mind that would be perfect for.)

Silver Crusade

Remember, clerics aren't automatically proficient with shields for purposes of making a shield bash. So you will need to burn a feat or multiclass.

See this FAQ.

Rogue makes a fine 4 level dip.

With versatile performance, a bard is as much a skill monkey at later levels as a rogue.

Taking ten on a jump, out of combat:
1. Are my shoelaces tied? Good.
2. Take a second to stretch.
3. Make sure any equipment is where it needs to be. I don't want my scabbard to swing around and trip up my legs as I'm leaping.
4. And I've made it past the Pit with Pointy Things at the Bottom.

Rolling my Acrobatics check to make a jump. In combat, or with the giant bowling ball headed towards me, or with the ledge I'm on falling apart underneath me, or something else distracting, keeping me from spending a few seconds to prepare:
1. I jump.
2. Enough goes right that I make it, or not.

My reading of the rules is that if I have time to do it reasonably carefully, I can take ten. If I can try and try again, I can take twenty. (With a few exceptions called out in the rules, like UMD.)

Can you reveal level of evil you're going for in Hell's Vengeance? I.E. mustache twirling pulp vs truly evil.

Are you finding it easier or harder to develope an evil AP?

Silver Crusade

Uhhhmm...

Evocation spells are suffused with the magical energy that evoked them. The flames of the fireball are within a network of magical energy created by the caster and flung onto the field of battle.

A conjured snowball, upon conjuration, exists independently of the casters network/web/weave of magical energy and is therefore unaffected by any inherent resistance against magic.

(Yeah, me neither.)

I like Spring Attack more considering your build. Against single targets you can approach with impunity. Against multiple targets you set up flanks with your Shadow and of course your closer to Whirlwind Attack.

There's nothing wrong with Improved Trip, it's a valid choice. To really take advantage of it you'll need Greater Improved Trip so plan for the additional feat. And keep in mind, as you get higher level things will be increasingly harder or immune to trip.

I've read l lot of Pathfinder products, including most of what Paizo has put out, though I haven't gotten to play a lot of it. I was thinking reviewing the products and had some questions.

1. As Creative Director, do you ever look at the reviews?

2. Is there anything you look for in a review, anything that is particularly helpful or not helpful?

3. Obviously my perspective is as a purchaser, so usefulness to a GM, or to a player, and price value, and whether it was fun to read are on my list. Any major ways to look at a product that would be useful to you as well as the customers that you can think of?

4. I know both in-house and freelance content producers put in a lot of effort. Any tips for a reviewer who wants to be complete (not just reviewing products he likes, or only talking about the good points) but not scathing or nasty?

The utopia provides time for several citizens to reach the stage where they want more; more say in what goes on; more control over their own lives. Imagine the harm a chaotic neutral enchanter and/or his bard friend, at 20th level with a few mythic tiers could do by rabble rousing about "free speech" or "taxation without representation" or "tear down this wall".

Or imagine a group of PC's who insist on violating the non-interference policy of the demi-leaders. We are going to stop the slavery in the land next door even if it causes war with Utopia Kingdom.

Nuts. Within hours of the post naming Liz Courts as Community Manager, she has already suggested I've posted in the wrong thread. In the announcement thread! What have we gotten into?

4d6, because I’d rather be above average than average the way I’d want to be average.

Would you rather be the subject of an unhealthy infatuation by Her Infernal Majestrix, Queen Abrogail II of the Thrice Damned House of Thrune, or Sorshen, Runelord of Lust?

1 per level. A Vow of Celibacy (no game effect) is 1 per 5 levels.

With the aid another action the MBC can improve your AC even when it can't hit. Take the Swift Aid feat (APG-172) and it is a swift action for the cock block.

If it's on the character sheet it's fine IMO. How do you know the cold weather outfit wasn't bought at character creation? Or for that matter, don't you start with one free outfit?

Depends on how your group plays it. I personally treat summoned (not called) creatures as just a step up from illusions. Summoning an evil outsider is still an evil act, but it is still only a reflection.

Brian Daley's Coramonde duology should be a fun read for a Pathfinder enthusiast.

Silver Crusade

The obvious answer would by the Storm Kindler prestige class, from the Paths of Prestige book.

You can find it at the Archives of Nethys.

A creature you summoned and can communicate with is under your control automatically(CRB-354). You can tell your horse-dragon eidolon to attack a particular foe or move a certain direction by shouting from thirty feet away. I don't read the rules as you losing that ability because your sitting on the eidolon. You don't need to worry about the "Control [not combat trained] Mount in Battle" part of the Ride skill (CRB-104).

Maybe your thinking of the "Fight [you get to make an attack on top your mount's] with Combat Trained Mount" part of the Ride skill, which is a free action. As the mount evolution specifically calls out the eidolon as "skilled and formed" as combat trained mount, I'd can see this (your?) point. If you want to make a ride skill check to attack in addition to your mounts attack, you do need the mount evolution. Which in itself is an important second penalty.

Drake Brimstone wrote:
You missed a second penalty that is much more important. It is a Move Action to control your untrained mount instead of the Free Action to control a Trained Mount.

Which wouldn't apply to an eidolon.

1. As of August 14, 2014, new aasimar characters generally cannot be created. You must either grandfather one in (have at least 1 XP for that character) prior to 8/14, or have a boon sheet allowing an aasimer.

2. Yes, if you have a legal aasimer, and the Blood of Angels book with the heritages, you can choose a heritage.

Silver Crusade

In a home game I would allow it. As for PFS, I'm not sure as to RAW or RAI.

Does the Undersized Mount feat (ACG-159) remove the requirement of the mount evolution (APG-60) that the eidolon must be one size larger than the summoner to ride?

Silver Crusade

Again. Wow.

Silver Crusade

With three quarters BAB, and restricted armor, they aren't front line combatants. A bard or higher intelligence ranger equals or even exceeds them with the number of skill points. And disabling magical traps doesn't come up that often, and several archetypes of other classes have that ability.

The ninja and new slayer are seen as allowing the rogue playstyle, only better in combat.

I like rogues, especially as back-up melee characters. If you are willing to delay your action and flank, I think they contribute just fine in combat. But I never thought the rogue was over powered.
