This could be cool, but I'd want the first one to come out after the PRPG in 2009, and all the monsters prior to that be updated for the new ruleset.
That makes perfect sense! They can release their own monster manuals. Monster Manual 1: The SRD stuff. Monster Manual 2: The Pathfinder stuff - updated and all.

Great idea. So would the third just be another compilation of the magazines (which wouldn't need to be updated) or all-new?

A game, in and of itself, cannot be overpowered. Power is relative. When something in a game is "overpowered," it's more powerful than everything else in the game. Thus, the entire game can't be overpowered; that would mean that every class in it is more powerful than the average class in it.

In Pathfinder, everything is more powerful than in 3.5, but they're all intended to be equally powerful. Therefore, Pathfinder caters to powergaming less than 3.5, because there's more power consistency.

In 3.5, on the other hand, everything is less powerful than in Pathfinder. Yet there's a less equal distribution of power, so some classes are overpowered in relation to the others.

I like the idea of the current system, but it gives out new skills too often. Perhaps every third or fourth level would be better.

It was definitely better thin its predecessors, but I do have one minor nitpick. In the information on tharizdun, he seems to have two different holy symbols. One (the spiral) is listed as the symbol of the Elder Elemental Eye, and the other one is described in his stats. Can one god have two holy symbols? If not, which one is right? I'm leaning toward the spiral because a) It's actually depicted, and b) it's the one used in The Styles.

Hi guys -- long time lurker, first time poster.

Just chiming in to say that I was surprised to see the new issue on the shelves of my local gaming shoppe. I usually get it in the mail before I see it there.
Anyhoo, if I recall, it had a reddish cover with an attractive woman surrounded by webs. I think it was supposed to be an aranea in its humanoid form.

It is. I just got it today.

I just downloaded the Ghostwalk enhancement, and I think I would rather just leave out the dominate ability and keep the original idea. It's a great idea

Spectres: They are in the monster manual, I just never noticed them. My mistake!

Daemons: No, they're just listed as "Lesser Daemons" or "Greater Daemons"

Total Party Levels:Thanks for the advice.

NPC Levels: Again, thanks.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The adventures included in the set are the big problem. Many monsters haven't been updated. What's the difference between a ghost and a spectre? What do greater and lesser daemons become? What's the "Total party levels" entry at the beginning mean? And on the subject of levels, do I have to change levels for NPCs to keep them equally powerful?

Liberty's Edge

It has a list of the terms used in stat blocks, so I could more or less figure that out. Needless to say, I was a bit underwhelmed by ACs until I noticed that.

I've only been playing since 3.5, and I just got a City of Greyhawk box set. Ability scores seem to be the same, and many of the monsters have been updated, but otherwise, how should I go about converting it to 3.5?

I've only been playing since 3.5, but out of the current campaign settings, definitely Greyhawk.

Well, first off: are you sure that this is flash (the term for excess pewter/plastic hanging off of a part)? It could be meant to be a worm. I don't have my stranglers on-hand right now, so I can't look for myself.

As to removal, if necessary, an exact-o knife should do the trick if you are careful. Just take your time doing it. Wire or gate clippers might also work, if you can get them to the target area easily.

Hope this helps,

TK

Hello? Anyone there?

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I didn't really know where to put this, and this seemed like as good a place as any.

I just got a set of Writhing Stranglers. Whenever I get new Pewter Minis, I always remove any bits of excess pewter. Then I got to 2 thick ones in exactly the same spots on every miniature. They're between the hands and the legs. They're about as thick as the legs, so I'm worried that I might break the legs off if I remove them.

So, finally, my question: Should I remove them, and if so, how should I go about it?

If you haven't read it already, check out a book called "The Amulet of Samarkand" by Jonathan Stroud. It marketed as juvenile literature and part of a trilogy called "The Bartimaeus Trilogy." In this world, magic is done by imps and little genies that wizards bind to their will. The narration flips back and forth between a yound wizard and the imp he has bound. Good book, quick read, funny and you can see how a bunch of imps really could rule the world. A few pretty bas ass imps too.

Read it, loved it. Read book 2 as well.

If the PCs fail to kill Dragotha, according to the prophecies in Spire of Long Shadows, the age of worms should never happen. the next last prophecy being "a tripartite spirit again becomes one, and at its advice are the mighty undone," the tripartite spirit being Balakarde, and "the mighty" being (I assume) Dragotha. Thus the age of worms cannot begin until Dragotha's destruction, and even then only if Balakarde helps. Right?

I had Balakarde,s prediction come true: every guardian of the Tabernacle was in the Writhing Sanctum. That's an encounter level of I think about 32. Anyway, by some dang well thought out tactics, timely uses of the "delay death" spell, and a few lucky rolls, they've got Dragotha on his own. Still, a TPK is always a possibility nonetheless. ;')

if they do survive, Kyuss won't be nearly as hard as he's supposed to be. ***SPOILERS*** I read that he'll effectively be CR 32, so you might try upping him to at least 35 or so. (This may also be against the 8th amendment)

This has been buging me for a while, and I just think Spawn of Kyuss would make more sense as a template. As is, a first level character who turns into a spawnof Kyuss is just as powerful as a 20th level character.

the only problem is that they'll miss getting elemental standards, as the Roc king won't die, and therfore Sayren-lei won't challenge them. this isn't all that important, but they're neat magic items.

The DMG only gives a little table shich seems to assume that only encounters with 1 type of monster, or 2 monsters with different CRs, are allowed. Beyond this, how exactly is EL computed?

I don't know much about Forgotten Realms, but Assuming the 3 gods it represents have 2 hands each, the EA shouldn't be missing any.

I don't think Eberron will become the core setting, because while it's really interesting, It's doesn't really match the flavor of D&D very well. Warforged are a bit annoying, as heal checks won't work on them, and shifters and changelings just seem like attempts to make lycanthropes and doppelgangers player races. Also, while I like the basic idea of lightning rails and warforged, they just look a bit too much like real technology.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

for warforged, look at the Warforged in AOW thread. it has a new monster called a Wormforged. Also, try changing a few villains to warforged. This can also be done with the minor NPCs to artificers.

If AOW was written for Eberron,thenit would probably be even harder to convert to Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms.

On tuesday, the Tome of Magic arrices in stores. I'm particularly interested in truename magic. In the "Ecology of the Spell Weaver" article in Dragon #338, it's revealed that the Spell Weaver Empire fell due to a mass apotheosis attempt using truename magic, which, due to the wrath of the existing deities failed, and ended up destroying the entire empire. I wonder if players will attempt this kind of thing? If so, what will happen to them?

The funniest moments in my campaign have been from seeing my players facial expressions and hearing the voice he uses for 'Effigy - The Porclain Knight' (his warforged). The construct is actually a bound air elemental inside ceramic armour much like a wind duke but a lesser version.

'Effigy' has a real name but it is a complicated series of long whistling inhales and exhales that only air elementals can understand, the player speaks like this in game and trys to sound monotone and emotionless 90% of the time but then goes all erratic and 'whistly' when in battle.

His warcry is a ear piercing whistle that causes everyone to wince around the table.
The most freaky thing about all this is that my mate manages to pull this off with a totally straight face and a blank stare, done in order to mimic his character not having a face and just a ceramic face plate with a auran symbol upon it.

The characters weirdness is often the cause for many strange misunderstandings and chuckles in game too. Many npc's wonder who the construct is and why this strange foreign knight never removes his armour, one barmaid has become infatuated with Effigy, seeing 'him' as the most truly dedicated warrior she's ever seen, like a fantastical paladin from a romantic legend or something ike that. ;)

Effigy meanwhile, dosent 'get it'. One of the other player's spiteful wizard is constantly stirring the pot and is trying to convince the poor woman to try her luck with the construct, telling her he loves her.

Definitely one of the best character ideas I've heard.

Additionally, I agree with the people who say bad things about having to prepare spells. If you're expecting a specific opponent, this is not so bad, but if caught completely by surpise, it can spell death. Think about random encounters.
"uhh... i think ill probably, Quite by coincidence, encounter a -monster name here- today, so i'll prepare -spell that works very well on that monster-."

Let's not forget that a Sorceror can take the Dragon disciple prestige class, while a wizard cannot. (IIRC, it says you have to be able to cast arcane spells without preperation) While it also requires Language: Draconic, which only wizards can learn, I find the idea of a sorceror/wizard so contradictory i just say screw it, let sorcerors learn draconic. (Also, in campaign terms, this fits because sorcerors are often descended from dragons)
