The goal for this character is super spy, but with some blast ability as well.

He can see at night via see in darkness, which is fun.

I'm not trying to min/max exactly, but I'd like him to be a viable combatant.

Thoughts?


What feats, tricks, features, etcetera can I add to telekinesis to maximize the spells usefulness?


I'm a bit new with animating dead, so bear with me.

I have to explain to my dm that you can create greater than 1HD undead with animate dead. He read the spell and dosen't seem to understand how it works.

Can anyone point me to the specifics on this? I'm not sure how best to prove that you can.

On a related note can only create basic skeletons or zombies, but can they be more than 1 HD?


Long story short my dad gave me a new samsung galaxy tablet. If the thing would function as designed I'd rather like it. However, a couple days ago it started malfunctioning.

Basically it won't go past the samsung screen.

I tried a hard reboot and it still won't work.

I just want the thing to work. Any thoughts?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

My list is short, but growing.
Beginning with something I heard today.

-Effervescent s@!@stain

If I ever start a garage band that's going to be the name.


What stat do you like the best and why? I know their all important in their own way, but which one do you, as a person, like best.

Personally, I'm overly fond of intelligence. Wizards are my favorite, but even when i don't play one I have hating a low Int. Skill points, knowledge checks, and generally Roleplaying that you're not a complete idiot.

I like being able to use my out of game knowledge in character, but that's just me.


Are there any tools where you can plug in what you want and it'll output stat blocks?

For example: wolf + fast zombie template


I'm only interested in the RAW if this question not house rules or if it should be done. I'm only interested in if it's legal. I'm typing on my phone so I'll keep this first part short.

The situation: you're a wizard with a crap ton of spellcraft. (It's important later). You have craft scroll by default and craft wondrous. You heard of or saw another caster use a particular spell. For sake of easy math it's a 1st level spell and for sake of discussion you cannot buy said scroll. Since you have to have access to a scroll to scribe a spell and access to said spell to create a scroll you think you're stuck. Then you have a very metagame idea. Does this work:

1) create one time use wondrous item that mimics the spell. You'll have to add +5 to the creation DC since you lack the spell. (Repeat as needed until you have enough to cover the days required for a scroll. In this example you only need 1)

2) scribe a scroll using the wondrous item to give you access to the spell.

3) use newly made scroll to scribe said spell to your book.

Cost breakdown:

Wondrous item: spell level (1) x caster level (1) x 25 gp = 25gp and one day to make.

Scroll: same breakdown. 25 gp

Scribe scroll costs.

Clearly this gets more expensive and time consuming as you need higher level spells, but on the surface is it legal by Rules As Written? If no please cite your sources of rules.


So my lvl 2 cleric found a scroll of animate dead (10 HD) and two lesser animate reads (2hd each). FYI this is for Reign of Winter.

Since I won't be able to cast the spell myself for awhile I wanted to get some advice on the best utility for these.

Either I want to do something utility or perhaps a front line damage sponge.

For the utility I was thinking some bloody skeletal horses and maybe a cart or sled to move the party around.

For the front line Fighter I was thinking a bloody skeleton or Bloody zombie for the recycling value. What do you think?

Also, how does on tell in character the HD of a creature?


Bloody skeletons are great! With only a few exceptions their nigh un-kllable. Make one and it comes back again and again. They've got 101 uses.

However, they're dripping with blood and kind of gross. So if I wanted to make a bloody skeleton to use as a pack animal (or whatever) how could I dress it up to make it just a little less disgusting for the Neutral-ish party to deal with?

Throw a sheet on it? Illusions? Cardboard box? How have you done it in the past.


Below is my first Alchemist. He's a bomber mostly. I'm not entirely sure what to do with him. Any advice would be appreciated.

This is the current build, but I can change things if I need to.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I'm actually most interested in the top 10 favorite epic Wizard spells as that's what I'll be using.

However I assume people may want to bring up other classes. So Please list your top 10 per class favorite mythic spells and why concentrating mostly on the best wizard mythic spells. Thank you.


So I'm playing a homebrew game set in Kaer Maga. A character I was very fond of died. He's an elven Arcane trickster. I included his pre-death stat block for what it's worth.

Now clearly we're in DM discretion territory, but mostly i'm looking for rule-of-cool ideas that the DM may let me use. Basically if I can make it plausible he may consider letting the character come back. I'm looking for such ideas.

Riddle's death was by an intellect devourer taking over his bran. Upon exiting the body turned to goo. So the character is dead with no body present.

Random thoughts that may help:

-His party can resurrect if they have a body. So all I really need is a way to get a new body. WIsh comes to mind. True res would be ideal, but I'll take what I can get.

- Riddle has died before. He made a deal with an otherworldly entity and came back once. True res is beyond that particular entities ability, so that's right out. However, it shows prescience.

-Riddle is morally ambiguous. CN upon death. He's loyal, but sees it as more of a means to an end. He doesn't generally lie, but is still quite deceptive when he wants to be. He's honest with people simply because he doesn't think he'll believe him anyway.

-Riddle had a raven familiar that still lives. I'm thinking if I can find a way to communicate with or possess the familiar he could speak to the living and arrange for his own resurrection. If Riddle as a raven could steal a ring of wishes somehow (big if) he could get a party member to use it, provided he couldn't use it himself. I think this is the "best" plan at the moment.

- Riddle's in with the local mages guild. Not quite a member, but if he could communicate
they may do him a solid. Maybe.

Any other or more detailed ideas?

Riddle just before death:

Obviously he has none of his gear, but otherwise here he is.

Muleback cords These thick leather cords wrap around the wearer’s biceps and shoulders; when worn, they make the muscles appear larger than normal. The wearer treats his Strength score as 8 higher than normal when determining his carrying capacity (see Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook page 171). This bonus does not apply to combat, breaking items, or any other Strength-related rolls except the amount of equipment or material the wearer can carry.

Construction
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, bull’s strength; Cost 500 gp
Pathfinder pouch (empty) This nondescript belt pouch is quite popular among Pathfinders who need to smuggle items past snooping guards or government officials. Detect magic does not detect that it is magical (as per the magic aura spell), but the pouch acts as a very small bag of holding (contents limit 10 pounds, volume limit 2 cubic feet).

With a command word, the wearer can close or open the extradimensional space within the pouch; when closed, the pouch holds no more than a mundane belt pouch the size of a human fist, though objects within the extradimensional space remain stored, unreachable until the pouch is unsealed again. This allows the user to empty his pockets or even turn the pouch inside-out to prove he carries no contraband, and access the hidden goods later when in a safe place. Because of their nonmagical auras, these pouches sometimes hold secret treasures for generations without their owners realizing their nature.

For a future game I'm contemplating a couple of different character ideas. Nothing is set in stone as the game hasn't even started,but I'm contemplating a ranger of some kind. I'm basically just looking for input.

Zen archer is out as DM has said no lawful alignments in a pirate campaign, which is fair.

Vague ideas looking for input/improvement

-Archer: Ifrit with see in smoke who carries an ever smoking bottle. Basically, open the bottle and fire with impunity as it will block sight for everyone else. This is completely useless underwater. I'll have to pick up a melee weapon.

-Archer: Slyph: Archer feats plus the ability to fly via feats.

- 2WF: This one is a bit feat intensive and I'm not sure if it's even feasible. 2WF style feats combined with the ifrit feats that create fire auras and such. Mechanically it's cool, but flavor it's awesome.

- Ditch it all and be an undine 2WF ninja.


I'm watching a rather interesting vampire movie called Byzantium and like most vampire movies it got me thinking. If you had the choice and all the available information would you choose to be a vampire, assuming it was a legitimate choice of course?

So pick your genre and say yea or nay. Give reasons where appropriate please.

Off the top of my head here are my choices.

- Dresden: Probably not for any of the three. They're societies are too b@+%*y for my liking.

- Byzantium: Probably as the only thing that seems to be a problem is the feeding. They're not even hurt by sunlight. They're not super strong or anything either. As best I can tell is that they're just immortals who have to drink blood every so often. I'd simply stick to violent criminals and/or terminally ill. Though I haven't quite finished the movie, so it's possible i'm missing some information.

- Twilight: yes, but only so I could murder as many of them as possible before they inevitably gang up to take me down. I hate that genre.

- Ann Rice: Maybe, but leaning towards no.

-White Wolf: If I got to be a Tremere with a low gen probably.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

What kind of enhancements (magical or otherwise) have you seen in your fantasy cities?

This isn't limited to Kingmaker, but I imagine a lot of the examples will be.

I haven't played kingmaker yet, but I'm thinking decanter of endless water aqueducts, construct driven machinery of some kind for the public good, etc.


I'm possibly playing a master summoner in a future campaign and I'm looking for flavor ideas. If you want to throw in some mechanic ideas that's be good too.

I'm leaning toward a lazy halfling who summons things to do his work.

Anyone have anything better?


I haven't got a build in mind or anything, but I was thinking about a winter witch for an Upcoming S&S game.

What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Maybe? and why please.


Does anyone know of a minion dice rolling app or website? So lets say i have a bunch of skeletons, or cohorts, or summoned creatures. is there an app or website that lets me input the specifics then just hit a button to roll the multiple dice? I'm thinking of it to save time during combat rounds with a lot of minions.


What's the lowest level spell or spell combination to bring back someone from the dead when you don't have a body?


The character below is for a tabletop game I'm playing. Next game is tomorrow.

I'm looking for feedback on what kind of shenanigans you would pull if you were this guy.

Presently he basically lives in air elemental form, uses Wild shape for utility, and in combat summons stuff. He avoids Melee range for obvious reasons.

Also looking for feedback on how to level him. My "plan" is to just keep taking levels of druid, but I'm not sure beyond that what feats to take, etc.

Thoughts?

Damage Resistance, Cold (3) You have the specified Damage Resistance against Cold attacks.

Heavyload belt This wide leather is held together with two strands of oxen skin threaded through holes on each end. The belt’s wearer is affected as though subject to a permanent ant haul spell (Advanced Player’s Guide).

Construction
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, ant haul; Cost 1,000 gp
Lightning Lord (8/day) (Sp) Call down lightning bolts against your enemies.
Magical Linguist +1 effective level for [language-dependent], glyph, symbol, or writing-related spells. +2 save vs. these spells.

Pathfinder pouch (empty) This nondescript belt pouch is quite popular among Pathfinders who need to smuggle items past snooping guards or government officials. Detect magic does not detect that it is magical (as per the magic aura spell), but the pouch acts as a very small bag of holding (contents limit 10 pounds, volume limit 2 cubic feet).

With a command word, the wearer can close or open the extradimensional space within the pouch; when closed, the pouch holds no more than a mundane belt pouch the size of a human fist, though objects within the extradimensional space remain stored, unreachable until the pouch is unsealed again. This allows the user to empty his pockets or even turn the pouch inside-out to prove he carries no contraband, and access the hidden goods later when in a safe place. Because of their nonmagical auras, these pouches sometimes hold secret treasures for generations without their owners realizing their nature.

Construction
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, magic aura, secret chest; Cost 500 gp
Resist Death's Touch (Ex) +4 to saves vs death, energy drain, and necromancy effects.
Ring of sustenance Immune to hunger and thirst, and only sleep two hours a night.

Superior Summoning When summoning more than one creature, summon an extra one
Trackless Step (Ex) You do not leave a trail as you move through natural surroundings.
Uskwood Hunter (Nidal) +1 trait bonus on Stealth checks, and Stealth is always a class skill for you.

Wild Shape (Beast Shape II: Tiny - Large animal) You may use your Wild Shape ability to become an animal.
Wild Shape (Elemental Body I: Small elemental) You may use your Wild Shape ability to become an elemental.
Wild Speech Speak while in wild shape

I'm looking for ideas for lairs to build. Lets say you're a mage, for sake of argument, but one that somehow doesn't have unlimited wealth and power. Odd, I know. Druids have no need for lairs and Clerics would just use their church.

The idea for this lair should be somewhere that could theoretically be anywhere. For example, converting a mountain cave would be fine. However, an active volcano would not. Just as a graveyard would be fine, but an ancient burial site of a long dead civilization cursed to walk the earth as undead would be harder to come by. Get it?

So this is something you'd theoretically build. I'd be interested in mundane ways to maximize strategic protection with just enough magic to make it functional. I'd rather have a bunch of skeletal archers behind arrow slits high up in a wall than a giant magical trap, for example.

Lower level spells preferred. Basically I don't want to spend millions of gold making the place Uber-magic, casting 100 permanent walls of fire, etc. Just keep it reasonable. A couple of big features would be fine, but lets not have bound solars guarding every cupboard.

A quick note on demiplanes: We all know that greater demiplane is the best lair ever, but I'd like to avoid either being an 18th level mage or finding an 18th level mage to make a scroll. What we're making today would be what that 18th level mage uses until he accumulates enough magic power to relocate to his pocket dimension lair. That being said, incorporating the lower level versions is totally cool.

In summary:

- Relocatability (a.k.a. Could theoretically be anywhere.
- Maximize mundane protective features
- Reasonable magic features
- Bonus points if you have maps/diagrams.

Ok, Paizonians, Dazzle me.


So I've created a number of "real life, but with magic" threads. This is another. :-)

So lets say you in real life, as you are now, suddenly get large amounts of magic. Use whatever specifics you want, but archmages are the standard usually.

I think I would maintain a mundane persona as to protect those around me. I would of course, use any number of tricks to disguise myself and go do fantastic things.

Would you keep up mundane appearances or would you not bother? Why or why not? Also, how would you go about it?


Coolest Intelligent magic item you've seen/made?

In game preferably, but in-game items based off of other fiction are more than welcome. Also, post/link stats if you have them.


This is a thought exercise.

You're a high level caster. I prefer wizards, but other casters are fine.

You create a spot with a view of the city, for sake of argument lets say top of a tower. It could just as easily be a centrally located peak in a mountainous city. (think Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janerio.)

So you have a panoramic view of the city, massive amounts of time, money, and magical power.

You want to create a spot that will allow you to single handedly turn the tide in the chance your city is attacked.

What protections/abilities/etc would you put on your place of power?

I'm thinking you need to keep the enemy from harming you while still giving yourself a super power boost.

This should be RAW, but not necessarily RAI.

Off the top of my head I'm thinking of a stationary "Traps" that gives you various effects

Generally useful:
a Mnemonic enhancer every round effect. Basically never run out of low level spells. 3rd and below if memory serves. This would actually cover a lot. Unlimited fireballs at your caster level for example.

Something for communication with your forces on the ground. Could be as simple as message, but perhaps there's a better answer.

Defense
Wind wall

Blade barrier for good measure in case someone manages to get close

Offense

Summon monster 9 (or the best you have) trap usable at will.

Snapdragon fireworks. I know it's not much damage, but it's long range and is a move action after the initial cast. What else would you do with a move action when you'll be standing in one place?

Any long range evocations would be useful.

What else? The idea is that you're going to be throwing devastating magic while staying in one place.


1. Light sources
2. I'd kill for an overland flight or spiderclimb spell. Wizards shouldn't be walking about.

More as I think of them.


If my witch has one level of marid sorcerer can I alter a spell from my witch class using the Marid sorcerer bloodline arcana?

Bloodline Arcana: Whenever you cast a spell that deals energy damage, you can change the type of damage to cold. This also changes the spell’s descriptors to match this energy type.


I saw something like that in hero lab, but can't remember what it was. Might be a feat or a trait or something else.

I know it's kinda vague, but so is my memory.

Any ideas?


Would you right now in real life rather have access to advanced scientific technology or High magic? Please follow up with your reasons why.


So if I have a fly speed can I "run" in a straight line while flying?

Basically if i'm using elemental body 1 to be a small air elemental I have a fly speed of 60 feet.

If I'm moving in a straight line going as fast as I can is my speed 120' for a double move or can I "Run" at 4X and go 240'?

Please cite any specific rules and their locations as needed.

Thank you.


I'm well aware magic isn't real, but as a thought experiment I like to talk as if it is.

You find yourself with whatever kind of magic you want in whatever way you think is "most likely." I don't care about that part.

So now you have magic. Woot! So generally speaking I'd want to keep a low profile, but I also want to use my newfound power to be fantastically wealthy. How would you do that while still maintaing your cover. A few ideas about money and other just entertaining.

Money ideas

1) Theft - Assuming no one here is a sociopath you'd theoretically want to steal from the rich. If for no other reason than because they have the best stuff. Invisibility + Teleport would cover most of your bases I think with perhaps a Knock or etherealness thrown in for good measure. I wouldn't bother with peoples houses or anything so pedestrian. I think the easiest thing to do would to be to steal directly from a bank somewhere far away from where you live. They're insured anyway. That or surreptitiously find someone willing and able to buy something ridiculous, like the crown jewels, and arrange that. Of course you wouldn't want to wear your own face when you made these arrangements or do so anywhere near where you lived.

2) Theft 1.5 - Instead of stealing something you simply convince someone to give you something using dominate or other magics. In this day and age, that's probably one of the smarter ways to go about it. It's not technically illegal, though it is immoral. Convince one or more of the 1% to give you large sums of money.

3) Arrange to "win the lottery" - Lottery could be literal or it could be something akin to it. You'd have to work out the specifics, but either use divination to find out the upcoming numbers or simply and invisibly arrange for your numbers to fall out of the ball thing they use. In the latter case it could be as easy as invisibly standing off to the side in the studio and using mage hand. Methods may vary, but I imagine there's a few ways to accomplish this.

4) Fabricate - Either using something that's not valuable and making it valuable, like taking an old beat up car and fabricating it into a new and functional car. Or if you have blood money, just make diamonds out of your blood. Creepy, but with access to restoration it shouldn't pose any major problems. You could make a reasonable living while still keeping a low profile. Personally I'd sell any goods I acquired this way in a far away pawn shop using a fake name and face.

5) Discover something - With your new power I'm sure you could figure out a way to enhance your modes of transportation and senses. You could take a beach vacation and use a combination of elemental body and divination to find some long lost treasure and just pretend you stumbled across it near land.

Non-monetary, but fun ideas:

A) Life bubble + interplanetary teleport - I think for safe measure I'd make sure I had a clone body ready back home, but still. Go where no man has gone before and bring back something if you want. I hear there are (highly toxic) planets where it rains diamonds. Good luck figuring out how to survive the hostile atmosphere, but its magic so maybe you can.

B) My house is totally going to have a secret pocket dimension. It'd be the ultimate escape/safe room ever.

C) A ring of invisibility (or a constant improved version if I have the time/money) is going to be a must. I'm going to want to fly around a lot and I'd rather not have to worry about people seeing me.

Other notes

#3 seems like the smartest thing to do initially. Just saying the others could have a downside.

On world domination - I think it's over rated. At most I might be inclined to occasionally secretly use enchantment to get politicians and the like to do the right thing. Preventing the Global annihilation of the human race is not the same as world domination. Just nudging the human race in a good direction. I think it would get really boring waiting out the millennia for life to reach sentience on earth again. I guess exploring the universe and looking for other intelligent life is always an option.

What do you all think?


So lets say your walking along (real life) and you see a briefcase. No one is around to see you. Curiosity gets the better of you and you open it. Its full of a lot of cash. Lets say 500K for sake of argument. There is no indication anywhere about who it belongs to or where it came from.

What do you do?


I'm Playing a Druid. I've got access to wild shape as a 6th level. Im a caster druid and nor a front liner. Ive got natural spell. What are the best shapes for me to use? It'll be mostly utility and scouting.


So I have this character created for an upcoming game. I think he's pretty good, but I'm looking for any feedback that can make him better either mechanically or flavor.

I rolled on the reincarnate chart, so the race is set until I die and roll for a new one.

Essentially this character uses Summon Nature's ally as an offense while he stays out of combat. The party consists of Fighter, Cleric, Oracle (Cohort healer), Cavalier.

- I don't love the name. Any suggestions on a better one would be much appreciated.

Any thoughts and feedback would be appreciated.

Pathfinder pouch (empty) This nondescript belt pouch is quite popular among Pathfinders who need to smuggle items past snooping guards or government officials. Detect magic does not detect that it is magical (as per the magic aura spell), but the pouch acts as a very small bag of holding (contents limit 10 pounds, volume limit 2 cubic feet).

With a command word, the wearer can close or open the extradimensional space within the pouch; when closed, the pouch holds no more than a mundane belt pouch the size of a human fist, though objects within the extradimensional space remain stored, unreachable until the pouch is unsealed again. This allows the user to empty his pockets or even turn the pouch inside-out to prove he carries no contraband, and access the hidden goods later when in a safe place. Because of their nonmagical auras, these pouches sometimes hold secret treasures for generations without their owners realizing their nature.

Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, magic aura, secret chest; Cost 500 gp

I'm looking over the Green Faith Acolyte and it kinda sucks. Please correct me if I'm wrong because it's a very flavorful PRC. It appears as though you're basically gimping your druid abilities for some very sub par powers. Am I missing something?


My concerns are immortality and the whole switching races thing.

Anything out there qualify as immortal at low levels, besides another reincarnated Druid?

I considered just long lived like an elf or something.

This Druid has an air theme, so getting an air elemental or something druid-y would be co if possible.

This is kind if random and non-specific, but I'm just looking to brainstorm.


So is played a lot if casters, but never used words of power. I favor wizards, but clerics and Druids are fun too.

For those who have used WOP what's the good, bad, and ugly for arcane casters? Divine?

Basically assuming I know nothing about WOP what do you like or dislike?


So with ultimate campaign everyone seems to be kingdom building, naturally. So I had this train of thought:

Everyones building kingdoms > The builders union of Golarion must be working overtime (sardonic) > What would make the best "builder" character.

Now I know Golarion is not being built in a day, but is an established setting with new rules. However, I still thought "The Builder" was an interesting idea.

1) So I want to build a character who specializes in building stuff (buildings, devices, etc). My first instinct was a transmuter wizard. However, I think the right cleric build could almost be better. Dwarf race works thematically. I imagine a lot of stonework (above ground and below) will be involved. However, if we're min/maxing Human is probably the way to go. I was mostly thinking of building mundane things, but the magic additions could be covered easily with craft wondrous and perhaps another item creation feat for making building tools such as Staves or Rods. So what do you think?

2) Also, what spells and/or abilities would be most useful? Wall of stone, Wall of Iron spring to mind. Polymorph any object (though subject to dispel could still be useful). Wish and lesser wish of course for the catch all creation stuff.

3) I wonder if you could rebuild entire castles or even sections of city with a wish? The whole city? Lets say there was a battle and much damage was done. Would one wish be able to fix all the mundane damages?

This is a very open ended conversation. I was just wondering what the community thought.


So I just started playing Dungeons and Dragons online. I'm a bit late to the game, but I have a Mac and I wasn't compatible for a long time. So I was browsing Steam and saw that it was now Mac compatible. YAY!

1)I was curious as to what others thoughts/experience was with the game? Love it or leave it and why?

2)Also anyone else on a Mac and have you had any issues?

3)I'm playing a wizard. Any unusual tips/ tricks I should know?

4) they have level 15 pregens, apparently. Basically you can play a fully built/ equipped pregen that start at level 15. I'm going to play low level at first to be used to the game, but may eventually try the pregens. Any thoughts?

5) how's the crafting system? Worth it?

Feel free to add any other thoughts that I haven't specifically asked. Though with this community it's basically a given. :-)

Thanks in advance.


I have an Arcane Trickster that's about to trade his monkey familiar for a raven and I need some good names for the raven. Any ideas?


Would a halfling sniper rogue with the swift as shadows trait and the other one (theres a feat i think) that reduces sniping penalties be a reasonably viable character?

Any advice on how to make it better?


I could use some character build advice.

The game is currently 3rd level, 20 pt buy, all Paizo is open game.

I'm familiar with Wizards, but not so much with Melee and definitely not with Alchemists.

As mentioned I'm presently 3rd level, but I'd like some advice on how to plan for the future.

Also, With reduced bomb damage what do I do in combat?


The only issue I see is that clone master reduces bomb damage, but then vivisectionist replaces it. So it's modified, but still present.

If it does stack what happens to the sneak attack damage? Is is still d6 or is it reduced?

If it doesn't technically stack would you as a DM allow the combo as it fits really well themantically?


I'm playing kingmaker and I've been assigned the spymaster role. I'm planning on taking leadership and get a cohort to help me with my task.

1) I'm looking at making my cohort a master spy (the PRC). What's the best way to optimize this? Race/class/items/etc. Keeping in mind it's a cohort and not a PC.

2) is there a better way to accomplish my goal without the master spy PRC? A diviner wizard or something?

Lets say my base speed is 30. I cast floating disk. After directing it to stay 1 foot away I move 30 feet. Clearly it can keep up.

However, if I double move in consecutive rounds can it keep up? (effectively moving 60 feet in a full round.)

Lets say I have a level barbarian. My base speed is now 40. Same questions.

Ok, my base speed is 30, but I take fleet four times. My base speed is not 50. Same questions.

Now I'm a high level monk with a base movement of 60. How fast can the disk move?

Floating Disk bolded for emphasis:

School evocation [force]; Level magus 1, sorcerer/wizard 1; Domain trade 1

CASTING
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S, M (a drop of mercury)

EFFECT
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Effect 3-ft.-diameter disk of force
Duration 1 hour/level
Saving Throw none; Spell Resistance no

DESCRIPTION
You create a slightly concave, circular plane of force that follows you about and carries loads for you. The disk is 3 feet in diameter and 1 inch deep at its center. It can hold 100 pounds of weight per caster level. If used to transport a liquid, its capacity is 2 gallons. The disk floats approximately 3 feet above the ground at all times and remains level. It floats along horizontally within spell range and will accompany you at a rate of no more than your normal speed each round. If not otherwise directed, it maintains a constant interval of 5 feet between itself and you. The disk winks out of existence when the spell duration expires. The disk also winks out if you move beyond its range or try to take the disk more than 3 feet away from the surface beneath it. When the disk winks out, whatever it was supporting falls to the surface beneath it.

With the new spells that have come out since the corebook is there a comprehensive list somewhere of what can be made permanent?


To be clear i'm not complaining. It may appear that way, but I'm legitimately astounded at my own lack of motivation. The purpose of this thread is to get some ideas about how other people overcame such things and incorporate some version of that into my life.

Problem:

I find it difficult to motivate myself lately, though i've had periods like this before. My question is have any of you had the time, energy, and ability to better yourselves in some way but for no obvious reason just completely lacked motivation to do so? If yes, how did you motivate yourself? I know I should, I know I need to, I even want to, but for some reason I am having a hard time making myself.

wall of details:

Some personal details:

I'm not depressed or anything like it. There's room for improvement, but I generally like my life and am quite happy. I'm not overly worried about anything. Though I have a ton of debt that causes me stress i'm dealing with it progressively. I have a good job that occasionally lends me a lot of free time. Right now, for example I'm working from home, but I have no specific tasks to complete so it's basically free time.

Unfinished tasks:

I want to do the below, but I hard time making myself do them because of lack of motivation.

- I've been teaching myself the basics of programming with the long term goal of being able to program an app that i've got in my head. In theory this could fix my relatively minor financial issues.

- Gym. I'm a fit guy (6'1'' 195 lbs mostly muscle) and I know I need to go to the gym to improve/maintain, but I get bored.

- Portuguese. I'm learning Portuguese. My husband is from Brazil and his mother may be moving in with us soon. I'm good with her living with us. I like her and she'll have her own space. She speaks english, but not very well. I'll need to learn Portuguese to better communicate with her. Plus there are good neurological reasons to to be bilingual. Also it makes you look smarter. Also if I can get fluent it could be very helpful for my job. Basically it's a good thing all around.

Anyway, if anyone has any good tips/tricks to motivate oneself I'd appreciate hearing them. Thank you, Paizonians.

Uranus!

No. Seriously. It rains diamonds on Uranus.

Step 1) Get access to interplanetary teleport, some protection spells, and the biggest open mouthed bucket you can carry.

Step 2) Interplanetary teleport to Uranus

Step 3) Hold bucket up until full.

Step 4) interplanetary Teleport back before your protection spells run out.

Step 5) Repeat as necessary

Step 6) Profit.

If I were an enterprising archamge I'd create a souped up Ring gate that works over any distance. Set it up on Uranus to catch the "rain." Have the other end over the portal to a demiplane created for this purpose. Cover the Uranus side of the ring gate when your demplane is full. Uncover as necessary.

Also, try not to flood the market or their value will go down and you'll need more of them for your spellcasting than you used to .
