Arise...


It's under his personality spoiler, but there no explanation of why he's interested.

Lots of justification would be nice, actually. Imagine, if you will, that instead of piles of threads like this one, we got actual answers to our questions?

Right now we aren't.


Reminds me of a good feat.


We should make a new thread and FAQ the question: Will we ever get justification for errata?

Most health? Probably not, since they still needed Int to get more spells per day.


Spell Sage wizard and Paragon Surge/Improved Eldritch Heritage(Arcane).

Hmm... What was that 'casting' class that looks better now that it's the only one that uses Con? Oh yeah. The kinenticist. Paizo nerfs options so new classes look "better" guys, this isn't new.
It's almost like how they stomped slashing grace to make the unchained rogue's dex fighting look "better"...

And Paragon Surge and Improved Eldritch Heritage(Arcane) to make a wizard archetype look "better"...

You know, I don't understand why a werewolf ever got a claw attack.


At least we can easily guess why slashing grace got nerfed: You can use anything in your off hand with Dervish Dance, so why take it when SG was so much better?


If FCBs were class features, why are they race specific? They're more like a tiny bonus racial trait you get as you level up in the right class.

I texted this question to a friend of mine; we're both at work so can't really do a full analysis, but here was his suggestion:

Conjuration. Samsaran spell sage(alternatively life necromancer). Spellslinger. And a transmutation shape changer.

I might even add on that the spellslinger should use Words of Power for more blaster power.

Lv1 Transmuter.

Now that UCRogue actually got perfectly working DEX to damage, it's fine to nerf the feat to ground.
It's really not. Not everyone wants to multi class for a character to be effective.
Sorry, forgot to put on my [sarcasm].

Ah. Nevermind then.


I've got a character idea that either needs a lot of work with the GN later on as the "side quest" or none at all. Should I PM you the details?

The errant is why I got the first printing of the book. Now I can keep good things good.

Mark, can you tell us what mechanical adjustments were made for Yoon to be a 'small' human, if any?
Was there any mechanical adjustments made for Yoon's age?

The Normal adjustments for young characters are -2 Str, -2 Con, -2 Wis, +2 Dex, so that's a starting point.

It looks different than that, but it's a starting point.

Also, she's not an NPC class to start...


Well, the Verminous Hunter lost some appeal. Worm no longer gives Fast Healing at all. I'd have taken that over fortification.

There's some debate over arcane deed getting precise strike to work because Arcane Deed doesn't allow you to use your magus levels in place of swashbuckler levels.

Actually you are wrong.

Arcane Deed (Ex): Prerequisite(s) Flamboyant arcana

Benefit(s) When a magus takes this arcana, he can pick any one deed from the swashbuckler class feature as long as that deed can be used by a swashbuckler of his magus level. The magus can use that deed by using points from his arcane pool as the panache points required for that deed. A magus can take this arcana multiple times, each time gaining a new deed.

The feat itsealf state that the magus will need enough levels to reach the swashbuckler to use the ability.

It doesn't let you use magus for swashbuckler, only to determine what deeds you can choose. 6th level magi can pick deeds a 6th level swashbuckler can. Magi don't need the damage boost.

Thank the kami she isn't chaotic evil! Instead she's a teenage girl out to find her place in the world. Also, it is just me or does Paizo seem to have a strange fixation with fire-based casters?
She's not a teenager. She's a preteen at best. She's young enough to be considered a Small creature, as per her PFS pregen, but my best teacher pedagogy puts her at around 8 years old. I don't know if her age was ever confirmed by the creative team. (I thought I heard 8 years old when she was revealed at PaizoCon, but I was told that no age was ever assigned to her back in May. When you're a teacher, sometimes you just fill these things in on the spot. ^_^)

I'm willing to bet they didn't use the Young Character rules in Ultimate Campaign.

Because the , you know, she wouldn't be a Kinitecist at all.

Non-humanoid races. Stuff like centaurs and drivers do t count.


I'm not saying it's not good. I'm saying it doesn't make sense and isn't worth a +3 for it.


How something can meld with your form perfectly, no longer even existing but become flesh/bone/whatever and still slow you down is incredibly weird and not worth anything more than a +1. Certainly not +3!


Was the errata ever posted? I can't find it, but in the first post, right after you see how many people hit the FAQ button, it was says the question was answered in the errata.


Drat, missed the deadline. I would've actually tried to get some sort of submission done for this one too.

Here's something that's been bugging me for a while. Why in the world did they choose to use psionics in this book? You'd think, with so much talk of not using psionics they'd at least think up a new name for what's been a power in Psionics books for years(like Ego Whip).

It just doesn't make sense. Paizo should be able to do better than copy/edit/paste.


Enjoy.

Now I wanna know more about this. You could almost say I'm...

Intrigued.

YEEAAAHHHH!!!


Beast King.

Then maybe Curse of the Coral Throne.


I thought I'd check, since you did say other 3rd party was a case-by-case thing. Have a fun game!


I'd love to try out a crafter looking for new materials to use and experiment with. This leads me to asking about The Artisan, a class based all around crafting.

My role: support. Doesn't matter if it's healing, blasting, utility, me lee or ranged combat, I'll have an item for helping out.(be it weapon, wand, or item). I hope Dynamic Magic Item Creation will be available too.

Crptic is a good fit for the other side too. I'll get to work on refining the idea.

Hi, Monkeygod. :)


Add in Racial Heritage to grab Steel Soul(dwarf feat) and Glory of Old(dwarf trait). Skyrocket those saving throws!

Prestige Classes Unchained. Make them worthwhile, but not more so than staying a single class.


I think I'll go ahead and drop out. I haven't read enough about the revised system to know if I like it or not, and would rather stop now than get a spot in the game and end up stopping later.

Good luck, everyone.


I'd rather not use the revised action economy. It's seems like more work for less so far.

I'm up in the air on what to play now though. There's the alchemist or the witch. Both could have Brew Potion at first level easily, but looking at DMIC without another person to help it's going to be even more expensive to make potions that way. 75% to brew instead of the usual 50%...


I had forgotten that potions, the iconic ability of alchemists, couldn't be used with DMIC, and had planned on making them that way..

The replacement idea was to make an actual witchwolf(the name of the wolf skinchanger variant) that crafts magic items. Since none of the familiars seemed very moon related, I was looking at the bonded witch half-elf archetype for thematic ability. I was thinking of bonding to a wand.


If a skinwalker is born from a human/elf coupling, will you allow it to take a half-elf only archetype? I've got an idea floating around in my head again.


So I re-read dynamic magic item creation and sighed. No potions or scrolls can be made with the system and that means alchemists can't use it. It's something I'd really like to try out too. Back to the drawing board...

It's people like this that give Psionics the stigma it's gotten...

I agree with kestrel287's suggestions fully.


Pathfinder was made by a different company that used 3.5. It's nothing but a bunch of 3.5 house rules. Yes, they are amazing, but they are still house rules.


You realize Paizo should be 3rd party, right? It was built off of 3.5. Maybe it's "2nd" party.

Rapier, Swashbuckler + Improved Critical + Discple: triple the above. -3 to 20, I think.

So if we use a 3pp class and another 3pp prestige class we get a totally broken character? Who knew?

Not really. You still need to hit.

And since pathfinder is 3.5 compatible, it's not a 3rd party prestige class.

If they're going for combat that is.

Just because someone shouldn't, doesn't mean they won't.


I do not like the grouped skills for only one reason: Inquisitors get no Knowledges as class skills. That just feels wrong for a class that has a class features based on knowing what your enemy is...


Where it say they don't gain more racial hit dice?


There's always the Unfettered Eidolon as a start.
