The fighter is a generic chassis for mixing it up with weapons. And as long as there were (are?) specific ways of fighting that aren't covered by an existing class, archetype, prestige class, alternate base class, or advanced class then it has a use.
But as the area that isn't covered by one of those specialists gets smaller and smaller then yes, the generic fighter begins to loose its place. There's no point in using a multitool if the exact tool you need for the job is just as easy to grab.
You can't prove a sequence is random. You can only prove that it isn't random.
You can't even do that. Random patterns can and do mimic order on occasion.
Given the premise that one is picked and one is the product of a d6 its easy to see which is far, far more likely to be the right answer, to the point that i'd risk my life on it for a pizza.

The challenge is to try and reconcile that fact, with the intuitive (and this time correct) answer to the following question:
Thats easy. Its the odds of sequential patterns vs not sequential patterns. "pattern-less gobbledygook" is more likely because its a MUCH larger catagory of answers than a recognizable pattern, even though the specific pattern itself is just as likely.
The guide is kind of dense. Additional resources is a LOT of cross checking.
archives of nethys has a bit of a wonky search engine but is pretty good for double checking if something is legal or not. PFS legal items have a funny white X thats the glyph of the open road.
The Basics: Core rule book races +nagaji, wayang, tengu and kitsune.
20 point buy. Be sure to figure the point buy and THEN add the racials.
Most feats are allowed except for item crafting.
You get two traits at creation.
Damn strait. Someone ought to tell Rosa Parks to get in the back of the bus where its safe!
If someone doesn't stand up for their rights it will NEVER change significantly.

And you do it badly, because you think very poorly and very illogically. You think that any answer can go strait into the math when it can't: garbage in garbage out.
The odds of 6 heads in a row is only 1 in 64. You will see 10 less likely events every day of your life. You have probably seen enough coin tosses of 6 to have seen a group of 6 heads. If the coin/the tosser isn't fair then there is no mathematical way to predict the outcome- the actual odds would be based on the mechanism for cheating. A two headed coin would have a 100% chance of returning H, someone deliberately flipping the coin would depend on their skill level at doing so.
I do not know how to calculate the odds not because I'm a mouth breathing troglodyte but because the odds are completely impossible to know once you leave the assumption of an unbiased coin. Without knowing the mechanism for your bias your calculations are worthless.
I had a post saying that that wasn't that bad, that given how much more often black males are involved in criminal activity it was probably inevitable...
Then i realized you misplaced a decimal point.
21 times greater is 2,100%
This one is a blast. Play it if you can.
At the end, there's an encounter with some arachnids and you have to get out of the place as fast as possible. My wild empathy focused druid belly rubbed the arachnids onto our side (they're so cute when all the legs twitch!) , then the party put wayfinders and a sign on them that read "I am a shapeshifted pathfiner. Come with me if you want to live" on them and sent them to "Fetch" pathfinders

Depends on whether or not you can go into negatives.
If you can, you probably have close to zero dollars.
If you can't, you very very very likely have zero dollars.

The odds of hhhhht is 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 *1/2
The odds of any particular combo you call is 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 *1/2. All heads just stands out more to us because its the only way to get six heads, whereas 3 heads and three tails can be obtained any number of ways like h h h t t t , h t h t h t , h h t t t h
If you're going to say i'm wrong, you need to provide an explanation.
It is an insult to the evidence you've been presented and the people you're talking to to simply dismiss the argument as an assumption without either addressing it or apparently understanding it.
It isn't as simple as black being the one and only factor. Its a matter of it being a contributing factor: far, far too much of a contributing factor.
Take the case in New York with Eric Garner. Looked like a combination of incompetence and tempers flaring up due to the fact that the cop and the suspect had a history, and not a pleasant one. But unless somehow the black supervisor on the scene was somehow a race traitor, the death was not because he was black.
His level of incompetence and anger management issues is only acceptable when its taken out on black people. Oddly enough if your level of incompetence and anger rise to the level where you use an illegal chokehold on someone in a predominantly white area your incompetent keister will be fired if you're lucky and sent off to jail with the rest of the criminals if you're not. Oddly enough that practice has the effect of producing far fewer officers that are that angry/inompetent/whatever.
People are tired of putting up with these kinds of cops and a system that does nothing to prevent them from doing it again when its clear from other districts that different kinds of police are possible.
If you're larger than the police officer in question those tend to come up a bit. Gods help you if you're both though...

If you have ever been violently assaulted then I'll accept that you are the rare individual who is not traumatized by such a brutal event. But for the vast majority of people, a violent beating is not like on TV. First, any hard hit can kill or cripple.
I've been on the ground, being pummeled in the head (LAST time i ever tried walking away from a fight) put my hand into my pocket for my knife and said ".. nah, doesn't hurt that much"
Mind you, after he punted me in the head I got a little loopy afterwards, but that took a few minutes to kick in.

I'm sorry to say, and I'm sure some will take offense, but if you have reached 3rd level or higher and still have not obtained a wayfinder, I don't have a lot of sympathy for failing this mission.
The list of items you "need" to have on hand to deal with the trials and tribulations of adventuring- swarms, darkness, swimming, swarms, falling, swarms, routinely adds up to more than a characters wealth by level, much less what someone has over after covering the basics like a magic weapon and magic armor.
The cost is minimal (certainly less than "wasted" expendable resources I've seen), but more importantly, it is a BADGE OF OFFICE, something that most members are expected to possess. Heck we offer a re-playable scenario such that you can get one for free or for minimum expense (250gp or 1 PA).
Only for the first time you play it.
Sure, we can argue that the role-playing aspect of PFS is minimal compared to non-organized play, but to completely ignore it and turn the game into nothing more than a scale where every decision is an effort to weigh tangible benefits (power level) vs. cost defeats an integral part of the game.
For some people being a part of the in game pathfinders is just something you do to be a part of organized play. For some characters being a pathfinder is either something they do for a pay check or even are reluctantly roped into.
For some others given the number of times flashing a wayfinder has gotten you the torch and pitchfork treatment some people don't like spending gold on something they're going to have to leave at home, store in a pathfinder pouch, or keep tucked away ini the OTHER pathfinder pouch to avoid taking penalties to skill rolls all night.
And round about character 10 I forget who bought one of these things already and who hasn't.
I don't get what you're trying to do or what the difference is between spending gold at second level or at third. The only difference would be the 1 rank or whatever you throw into your dayjob check (not that dayjob checks really matter for gold anyway)
If you're talking about how much gold you make from the scenario, its from what you played as.
Profession is kind of a "make up your own job" skill.
You will get money based off of the die roll + wisdom bonus + 3 for it being a class skill no matter what you call it.
How useful it is/ if it ever comes up in an adventure is high DM dependent. Since there are no hard and fast rules for making professions, there aren't any for using them.
This character has a higher wisdom score than their intelligence right?
Cops do not think it was an accident? How do you accidentally use a wmd for them to consider the possibility it was an accident?
They sell the stuff for pool cleaners.
Drop some of that stuff in an enclosed space (like a stair well) and get it wet, or worse mix it with an amonia cleaner. It'll make you dizzy. Did that on accident in a bathroom once, had to drag someone out out of the bathroom.

50 gp for dogsitting services, 100 gp craft services fee for a Roc and a Bullette, 100 gp of honey for employee recognition, 5 gp for the ferry, 100 gp for a hostage payout, 100 gp for extra chocholate, 200 gp for wheels of justice grease...
But two things stand out about some very humerous expense items. 1) is that they were generic, not specific and 2) They were optional,there were multiple ways of achieving the goal or the money just provided a bonus.
Fees are fees, and this is just another challenge that requires another macguffin to succeed--like swarms and alchemist fire.
Right, but this is more like saying that the swarm is immune to burning hands, and the alkalai flasks,and torches, and set fires, and everything BUT alchemists fire. And you can't go around the swarm.
Spoiler from last session
Pathfinder already have a bad reputation in this town. You know what to do...Everyone put on your Aspis Badges
A player showed up late so his character joined in a bit late
"If you're really a pathfinder... then where's your Aspis badge?"
(we were finally satisfied by his complaint that Drendle Drang woke him up at 5:am to be there)
