Noble Bats start with a Stregnth of 1, always. It can be modified later like any other attribute.

I hope for your sake we never fight Shadows.

Also how the heck did you get your stats that high? 0_o

Using The Noble Wild(a pdf/book I have that our GM dies as well) and playing a bat. Also the unique point buy.

Which I realize now I messed up slightly. Moving Dex and Wis down to 22 each.


Strength 1
Dexterity 26(22+4)
Constitution 18
Intelligence 12
Wisdom 26(22+4)
Charisma 6(10-4)

Akula needs an agile amulet of the mighty fists. badly.

Honest to god, with all these options I cannot find a second class that I like for pairing with my Psion.

Fighter. All the utility of 9th levels of powers with the BaB, fort saves, armor, and weapons of a brutal frontline combatant!


"Elvish Charge!" Yelled by my friend's dwarf just before he retreated.

Funny you should say that...


This isn't mine, but a friend of mine had a for pal sword and when they went to fight a colossal red dragon, the final villian, he won initiative and charged.

Natural 20.
"Okay, yeah, but you can't confirm it!" Said the DM.
19 on the dice. The dragon is beheaded.

The DM was PO'd because he'd spent four hours on the encounter.


I love the Swashbuckler, so there's her, and Lini is pretty awesome too. After that... Daniel and Oloch.


I was gonna call Bloodrager, but I'd have to see it first. And think of something besides Druid(it's my favorite) to mix with it.

But in the link i see a Human barbarian, not a dwarf barbarian. Humans has a one more feat than dwarves...then a character level 20 then explained every level but not a dwarf build.

Easy fix: don't take desperate battler. Now the build is fine for dwarves.


So... Fly by attack is not anything like Spring Attack for fliers. Go figure. :(


Dwarf has the best defenses of any of the shirt races really. Saves against also anything? Yes please!


It's just a link to a really tough build progression.


Still here too.


How about the dwarf that never dies?

That's a great build for it.


I agree on 2 with Durngrun. Especially since the eidolon suit goes over your entire body.


Quoting the mechanics of the masterpiece, instead of the flavor, is important though. So you rolled a bluff check, made up some stuff(Burn the troll! Weave the basket like this! This sword is worth 500!) and later found out you were right.


Now if only permanent negative levels had to be removed by spells, instead of a buffed saving throw every 24 hours...


My thoughts.

1) Yes, you could use touch attacks, deal no damage, and deliver the poison(10+1/2 your level + Con mod).

2) yes. The spells tell you exactly what you get from the creature.

Is it worse than Antagonize?

:O

Not when compared to the new Crane Wing. That poor, poor feat...

It's a really, really neat class, but... Well, it's fire based. The most resisted element in the game. Yes, by level 10(level 15 total!) you can decrease a creature's fire resistance by 10.

That is not going to matter in the slightest.


The way I read it, no. Now,if you spent 8 points, then yes.

Like that matters if your sole intent is to troll the group.

If someone's intent is to troll the group, they are soon out of my group.


There was an FAQ stating that you use the less advantageous spell level for things like this. You could put an empowered cure light wounds in it, for example, or a silent cure moderate, but not a empowered cure serious wounds.

Sadly, I can't find said FAQ.

Found it.


Then CR really needs thrown out, because nothing stands a chance.


Totally dotting.


Do t the gestalt rules themselves go into this? I believe it's +1 or +2 CR.

Edit, found it on the SRD:
Challenge Ratings
Gestalt characters can obviously handle more opposition than standard characters. The simplest way to compensate for this is to use adventures with tougher monsters. In general, a party of four gestalt characters can handle multiple encounters with a single monster of a Challenge Rating equal to their average level + 1. If the monster poses a challenge because it forces the characters to succeed on life-threatening saving throws (such as with a medusa or a wyvern), it’s even weaker against gestalt characters, who have few or no weak saves. Characters can handle multiple encounters with such monsters at a Challenge Rating equal to their average level + 2. A shambling mound (CR 6) or a medusa (CR 7) would be appropriate average encounters for four 5th-level gestalt characters. If you take this approach, realize that characters gain levels faster than in a typical campaign, because they’re gaining experience points as if those encounters were harder than they actually are. You’re obviously comfortable with a high-powered game, so faster advancement may be an additional benefit, not a problem. if you rely on published adventures, this is the easiest option.

If you want to keep level advancement at the standard average of thirteen encounters per level, reduce the Challenge Ratings of all the monsters and NPCs in your campaign by 1 (or by 2 if they rely on failed PC saving throws to pose a challenge). The shambling mound and the medusa would both become CR 5 monsters, and the gestalt characters gain levels at the usual rate. Monsters with a Challenge Rating of 1 become CR 1/2, and other monsters with fractional Challenge Ratings have their CRs cut in half (kobolds become CR 1/6, in other words). Many staple low-CR monsters don’t work well against a party of gestalt characters, even 1st-level gestalts.


No, because Life Link is a flat bonus and Fey Foundling only adds 2 HP per die rolled. No dice rolled, no extra HP.


It's not Psionic, but there is the Skin Changer., and RavingDork made a great Mythic Wizard for shapeshifting.

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.

Or anything really. ^^


And a Soulbolt/Marksman could be devastating.
