Taboos against cannibilism are cultural, as the lizard folk example proves.. Some may see it as okay, others may condemn you to the Nine Hells or abyss.


You know, the Artisan pdf, which has a lot of stuff the pfsrd doesn't have(like variant homunculu0s types), is sold here on Paizo.


Bards and Witches get Cure X Wounds as Arcane spells though.


Headbands of Charisma are the most obvious way I can think of.


You know, even if I'm not picked, I'm going to stat Akula out. In theory she's pretty mean. :)


Just build the homunculus to look different.


So, basically, Human -> ??? -> Gathlain. Something had to happen to make the Gathlain.


Would Gathlain work for the fey?


Joke Advice: start throwing daggers. If he complains still, tell him his d4 attack(magic Missle) is worse, cause it auto hits and has a huge range. ;p


You could play a Samsaran and bad it off of the Cleric list.


Swarms.

Well actually, instead of it being a "reach for reserves", you could phrase it as a "one last ace in the hole"

"Uren was surrounded by the savage barbarians. Back against the wall, he knew that he only had one incantation within him. One last ace up his sleeve. As his hands flourished and eyes glowed crimson, Uren uttered a single word...

'...fireball...'"

Still sounds evocative. Though I find that we are getting grossly off topic from Psioncis.

Ya, but the audience already knows he has it. Don't get me wrong, obviously you can make really good fantasty stories with vancian magic, I just find it lends itself less easily to a narrative. "And lo did Urek prepare 3 Fireballs that morning, because he planned poorly and prayed he did not run into thing that required something other then a hammer."

Ugh, I remember a scene like that R.A. Salvatore's 'A Thousand Orcs' when a someone calls for the Wizard to fireball a group flooding the gate or something, and the Wizard calls back, "I can't, I only prepared 2 fireballs today!" Really kind of broke my immersion in the book.

Honestly, the magic system I would prefer the most would have to be modeled after the Harry Potter universe. Where you can know any number of spells, but you it kind of requires a skill check, or some sort of focus or something or you fail.

Might I suggest The Spellweaver?


Point and level ever determined?


Makes sense to me. I fine with the mega amazing too.


Healer's Blessing is not a Metamagic feat, so the casting time is unchanged.


If you miss by 5 or more, you actually hits an image anyway.


64d6 ⇒ (4, 4, 1, 6, 6, 3, 2, 2, 5, 4, 2, 1, 6, 6, 1, 3, 4, 2, 5, 4, 5, 5, 5, 2, 2, 2, 4, 5, 3, 4, 5, 1, 6, 5, 5, 6, 2, 3, 4, 3, 5, 1, 3, 6, 1, 3, 1, 3, 5, 1, 6, 6, 1, 2, 3, 5, 2, 6, 1, 1, 5, 3, 6, 4) = 228

Yup. Gonna need a dice app.


Concept!

Akula Bloodwing, a deadly killer capable of draining the blood from her targets... and their lifeforce with it.

A Noble Bat with the gestalt of Vitalist(Soulthief method)/Ninja, using hit-and-fly tactics.

Azten, yes I do! Why do you ask?

I got it too! Time to make that Bunnybarian... >.>

Or anything really. ^^


And a Soulbolt/Marksman could be devastating.


The Silver Prince wrote:
MDT, that concept is fine! Do you mean an actual awakened animal or a sentient one? There IS a difference! I have a whole book on stats for sentient animals... including a system for rewards apart from treasure, since many animals cannot use humanoid treasure.

Wait. Hold the phone.

You've got The Noble Wild? The Pathfinder version? O.o


I just seperate the gestalt into sides.

Side A, Fighter
Side B, Rouge

At first level you would have
8+ Int skills
Good Fort and Reflex saves
Sneak Attack +1d6
A Bonus feat
Trap finding
And +1 BaB


Looooots of Aegis going around. Might look at another class for my Soulknife...


They both effect Arcana, so, technically, aren't allowed together.

I'm in!

I would prefer gestalt to mythic, but i'm fine with whatever.

gestalt is only a lot of bookkeeping if you go double manifester.

How? Wouldn't you just use the better pool of power points?


To be fair, according to the Spellcraft rules, if someone can't see you, they can't make any Spellcraft checks.

So.. Yeah, no help from still/silent.


Unchained?

Azten, think completely severed from time but still existing within it, so they will NEVER age, even magically. As for any catastrophe, I have NO idea what you're trying to imply... >:)

Just trying to figure out more flavor. ;)

I vote for gestalt, but not against mythic.


"23. Futureborns- Creatures from the distant future who were propelled to the present by some unknown catastrophe which also stripped them of most of their memories. They have an uncanny sense of time and are completely ageless."

Until they get back to their time and start aging again, signaling the coming of said catastrophe?[/wicked guess]

Any time I see a Druid/Bard I think of this.


Copy cat. ;p


I think I'll drop my Cerebremancer idea and make a Maenad that has a high enough osychic resonance to created armor and weapons from the crystals growing from his skin. Aegis/Gifted Blade(Soulknife). Explorer/Mercanery type.

I don't have much interest in Mythic, but Gestalt is always fun. :)


Ettin Gnome, constantly contradicting itself, getting into arguments, etc.


O.o

I would love it. Immediately I think of a character that is, secretly, a Cerebremancer. There could even be Oread Druids in the crystal forest!


2 definitely caught my eye, and 4 could be tons of fun.


"Beat her parents to the punch."

She's awesome.


It sounds like the ratfolk would need to attack at the same time(one using a readied action) or they wouldn't get the flanking bonuses. Might just be me.

Also, yay thread necro!

You know what's fun about 7th level Samsaran Druids? Being able to cast Holy Sword. Well, if they're Neutral Good anyway. :)


Not all of those powers are original.

Animal Allegiance, for example, is Charm Animal/Dominate Monster, and Throw Voice is Ventriliquism. Just look for spells that do similar effects and you're good.


Damage isn't a check or a statistical score.


Probably more than the ones that says boiling water isn't fire damage. I will argue that DR isn't a penalty though.

"Boiling water deals 1d6 points of scalding damage, unless the character is fully immersed, in which case it deals 10d6 points of damage per round of exposure."

I think favored class bonuses need to be looked at, unless they count as being 'from the class'. For example, the Wayang Bard and Oracle FCBs add spells known from another class list without explicitly adding them to your Oracle list as well.
I'd rule those as a class feature as those options are available to be taken only if you are that class. And it is "Favored Class Options" after all.

Except it's a racial feature that us for a class. If it was from the class, it wouldn't make sense that only Elves/Aasimars can boost their Oracle levels for a revelation.


You know, in a group made of things like Aasimars and Undines, Alignment Channel is a way better option than Selective Channel.


Now we just need a way to make returning a better property so Brawlers aren't carrying their shields on blinkback belts.


Unfortunately, there's a bit of a debate over wether or not you can Wildshape into bigger or smaller versions of an Animal. That's really up to your GM until then.

With a two-person party, wouldn't a class with summoning or animal companion be a smart option? I don't know what might synergize with Summoner, but the Master Summoner archetype can pull up a stupid quantity of meat shields at low level and some really cool allies as you level up.

Bard. Definitely, absolutely Bard.


Dang, mussed the "bloodline powers" part. Carry on.

The oracle paladin sounds interesting. I wanted to find a cool way to use life oracle and with the combat of a paladin that might work. I know there are a lot of combinations, but why are those options good?

Using the Druid/Monk I suggested earlier.

1) If you can get/make it, wild armor is your friend. Sure, when you aren't Wildshaped you won't get you monk armor class bonuses, but when you are, your AC will shoot up! Grab Heavy Armor Proficiency for dragon hide Fullplate. When Wildshaped, it's max dexterity bonus won't apply either(because, again, you aren't wearing it).

2) One feat. :Feral Combat Training. If you're going to focus on just one form, like a Saurian Shaman that turns into a deinonychus, then you can use a Natural Weapon for Flurry of Blows and the damage is increased like an Unarmed Strike(and in the case of things with Pounce, Flurry on a Charge).

3) Wisdom Synergy. Monks use Wisdom. Druids use Wisdom. It just works. :)


18, 16, 15, 14, 12, 11

You could make a lot with those.

A Ranger/Barbarian(Two-Weapon a Fighting + Beast Totem)
A Druid/Monk(hint: wild armor isn't worn when you Wildshape)
An Oracle/Cleric(Use Oracle for the spells you think you'll need but don't want to prepare. Also Life Mystery + Healing Domain! O.o)
The aforementioned a Fighter/Rogue
A Summoner/Bard(yeah, let's get a ton of use from Inspire Courage. ;) )
A Magus/Cleric(Spell Combat/Strike with Harm)

The list can get longer too.
