Hey All, I have a question. Are there any ill effects for an evil person casting Protection Vs. Evil on itself> I say no, but others in my group say yes. I see it as just because I'm evil doesn't mean I can't protect myself from external evil & my internal evil has nothing to do with it. I mean, I am not attacking myself...so...
The reason I ask is because I LOVE PF Necromancers (they are better than any edition of every RPG I played. In my opinion) & I usually play the Lawful Evil type & the DM felt I can't Cast Protection Vs Evil without taking penalties while it's up & I call BS on that.
Hi All. I have a question that I am not sure if it's been asked or if this is the right forum for this but here I go.
They made something similar to this in Dungeon Magazine Archive for D&D 3.5. I forgot what it was called but you can pull an unlimited amount of steel, silver, cold iron, or wooden tipped arrows & 5 times a day (I think) you can pull a adamantine arrow. I haven't read this in years so I could be wrong on some of this info. I think the arrows disappear 1 round after firing. Could be wrong. HopeI helped.
Hey All, I recently heard from a friend that Paizo is making a new campaign setting for PF, is that true? I looked on the message boards but couldn't find any info about it. He said it's going to be PF but not on Golarian.
I had a DM once that if you rolled a nat 1 & you had a magic weapon, it had to make a save & if it failed it exploded in a 20ft radius inflicting 3d6 damage per "+" PLUS any other magic item in that radius had to make a save or it exploded in a 20ft radius inflicting 3d6 damage per "+" PLUS any magic item in that 20ft radius...you get the point. He would often brag about killing his first group in a chain reaction. Leaving me to ask "How is that fun?" This was in the mid 90's & it was 2e AD&D but it still annoys me to this day.....The Horror...
Hey I just got an email that says I am being charged for PSS games that I was already charged for at the end of April. The email said I was charged $15 and some change & it lists #8-18, #8-19. #8-20, & #8-21. But I got #8-18 & #8-19 last month. Am I being charged for them twice?
Wow! Those are really nice friends.
Hey All, I was wondering if there are any plans in the future for having an AP that uses just the CRB, UC, UM, & APG classes? I like the APs but I don't have all the newer books (Advanced Class Guide, Unchained, Occult, & the like) & I am simple in my gaming I just like the few books I listed, but I see that just about every enemy you fight in the APs are classed with all the new classes that I don't know. I want to keep the subscription but if I can't use them it is a waste of money (something that I really don't have a lot of). Later
The best I ever ran (3 times) was the 2e box game The Return to the Tomb of Horrors. I am currently trying to convert it to PF.
Good news!!! I left the group & the player who was cool & liked my game, is quitting too. He couldn't handle the BS either. But from another player than the one I had trouble with. And I am with another group, that's a good group & the player that's cool said that once I move, & that if his schedule allows it, he will join our group.
Man I wished someone on this page would have bet me those 10gp that I mentioned eariler. Oh well.
We should be moved by around July to August.
This will be a good birthday.
Darksol you spelled it out better than I can & it was amazing.
Arbane, you might find the interesting. The place where we game is just down the street from where we are going to move. In fact, they want to start gaming at my new house when I move. That is also why me quitting has to come now, before I get deeper into the mire.
I will let them know. I don't like it when gamers just stop communicating & I would never do anything like that myself. Things will be great. I can feel it. Ironfang Invasion is out, I just bought some pawns, my birthdays next month so we're gonna go out to eat, gonna get some Fajitas at Cafe Del Rio. You can't frown while eating good food. Things will work out. I bet you 10gp everything will work out.
I think that even if you presented him with undeniable evidence of what he is. He will never admit to it. In his mind he is infallible. I think that is the main reason he doesn't like me. In me knowing the rules better than him & in the fact that his best friend said that I was a better GM than him. It showed that he wasn't perfect. I honestly believe that is his major problem with me.
It's okay though. I want to thank you guys for listening. It really helped. Honestly. Just to have someone to talk to means a lot. I don't have any gamers to talk to normally just my parents & they wouldn't know a 4-sider if their lives depended on it. Thanks.
I have schizophrenia & bi-polar disorder & all of this is weighing too much on me. But as soon as I said I was going to quit, it was the "Weight off of my chest moment." I actually feel so much better.
The way I see it, I am happy now. So I win. It might be a while before finding a new group but I will be okay. I am moving in the summer so with a new home might come new opportunities. Believe me. With this group I can promise you, they would pick him to stay over me. With only the player who said I was a good GM who would not want me to go.
Well the problem with getting him kicked is that they all have been friends for years & I am the newest. And the issue with talking to him is that he is delusional. On the flat footed until you act thing. The next game he was quoting "Me" the rule as if he knew it all along & I didn't know it.
This all started when a player in the group said that I was the best GM at the table, while this guy was at the table. I knew that was trouble & I wish he never said that. I don't even think I am a better GM I am just a different one. My games are story driven where I mesh the backgrounds of the players into my story. His games are all powergaming hack n slash with very little to no story. We go into dungeon, we kill underlings, we fight boss battle, he drops gem that leads us to next level, we fight underlings, we fight boss battle, he drops gem that leads us to next level, lather, rinse, repeat. Which is fine if your into that, I'm not.
He takes every opportunity to take shots at PF. I think it's because he thinks it hurts me.
You know what? I AM going to quit. I guess it took writing out my thoughts to understand. Thanks All. I feel better already.
Hey All, I am sorry about this being long but I got a bit of a problem that I need advise on. I joined a group a little over a year ago. They played 3.5 & 5e. But I got them to play in my Pathfinder game. It was okay but one player who is a devoted 3.5 player is causing problems & it's the dumbest of problems.
In my game someone in the group wanted to use 2 weapon fighting but he moved more than 5ft so I said he couldn't because 2 weapon fighting was a full attack action. The problem player yelled & screamed "That's why I hate PF because of stupid rules like that!" Which then I said it was the same way with 3e & 3.5. He said I was wrong, I said look it up. He did. He then moved on, not saying I was right but I didn't care.
Then in my game they had a fight with rogues. Rogues got initiative so they stabbed at his paladin. I asked what his flat footed AC was. He yelled that it shouldn't be flat footed because he wasn't surprised. Where I said you are flat footed until you act in the round. He started bad mouthing PF because of "Stupid Rules" like that. Where I said it's been that way since 3e. Where he didn't believe me, so we had to look it up & I was right. So he said he was gonna start using that "New"rule, where I said it wasn't new it's been around since 2000. He didn't enjoy that. Maybe I should have taken the high ground but...
Over the weekend he complained about in PF the spell Lesser Restoration took 3 rounds to cast. I told him it was the same in 3.5 & of course he didn't believe me.
And his, I guess hatred, of me is spilling over in his 5e game because he is showing VAST amounts of disfavor towards me while showing an amazing amount of favor towards everyone else.
Plus I had to quit running my game because he sabotaged it. He decided, at 1st level, to get the entire thieves guild in town to go after them by attacking them. He was playing his paladin lawful stupid & said he had to destroy evil. So now the entire thieves guild has a price on the players head. And I thought of many ways to fix this. But then I thought, even if I fix this, he will just do something else, Then I fix that, then something else & so on. So even though I REALLY, REALLY love to GM I can't because of him. I don't know what to do so any advise would be welcome. I am even thinking of just quitting the only problem is that in my area it's slim pickins so that means no gaming whatsoever.
I recently finished the Godslayer. I enjoyed all of the movies.
Hey All, can you cast Shrink Item on a small barrel of gear to carry it around in your pocket & then when you need it just restore it back to normal size? Will it's contents shrink with it? And if you can make it permanent can you always shrink & enlarge it at will? And if yes, & if you were powerful enough, can you do the same with a small cart? Ty
Hey, can you have any familiar with the Valet Archetype or do you have to have a Improved Familiar? I wanted to have an arctic hare as a familiar for the bonus to initiative, but I don't see how it can assist in crafting. Or is it more a mental thing rather than physical? A voice in the head reminding you that it's 3 eyes of newt instead of 2. Help me out here plz.
Hey. Is there some plans on having a bunch'a pawns kinda like the Summon Monster pawns except that it has all undead?
Hey. My name is Russell Haught I am looking for a group in the Mesquite/Balch Springs/Seagoville area in Texas. I can play D&D 2nd ed thru 5th, or Pathfinder. I like to play in person. Not very big on gaming online.
Hi all. In the description of Greater Spell Specialization it says you can spontaneously cast a spell that you have Spell Specialization in by sacrificing a spell of at least equal level & you can add a Metamagic feat by increasing the level & casting time. Does this mean you can add only one Metamagic feat to it? It seams so, but I just want to be sure. Thanks
Hi. I downloaded the Encounter Planner of Hero Lab & it is nice but it has a different calculation for my groups APL than I do. I probably messed up somewhere so if anyone can help me figure out where I went wrong I would appreciate it. I have 6 players. Two at level 5, Three at level 4, & one at level 3. I figured APL 6 but Hero Lab says APL 5. Thank you.
