Osirion

Wow, crazy week for me. Working on fluff and reviwing crunch for Regin now.

Osirion

I don't suppose you'll tell us what we can expect of the "outside"?

Osirion

Martian:
You are correct on the trait count. I missed the one trait thing last night.
GM mentioned above that we are to create our characters at level 2 with starting gold and such. She'll give you a stat block with nothing. :)

I'll look over your character when I get a chance.

Edit: Copy/Pasteing stats from HeroLabs is also generally acceptable. I see no mechanical flaws, so GM will have to give you advise.

Osirion

By the way, GM, how long did you plan to run recruitment?

Osirion

Martain: I would suggest working out a theme and character before the build. This feels like a very character/story driven game. Once you have a solid grip on the character in your head, choose race, class, etc. to fit. I'm not trying to suggest your character is unworthy of the running or anything like that. I was just making you aware that playtest material is generally not considered allowed until stated otherwise.

As for Alias info, feel free to take a look at mine. It is incomplete at the moment, but should give you an idea. The methods and formats vary wildly, but as long as it's readable or the GM requests a specific format whatever works for you should be fine. If you're planning a more martial character, feel free to look at my alias "Olivius Telraven"

All opinions expressed in this post are Choon's alone and he reserves the right to be completely wrong at any time.

Oh, and welcome to PbP. :)

Osirion

So far there has been one character alias post, and the rest are in process. If you wish to propose your character, go for it, but GM hasn't ruled on playtest classes yet.

Osirion

I am also available for questions, if you wish (and if Sanya isn't against it). Creating characters is one of my favorite parts of Pathfinder, and I don't mind helping in the least.

Osirion

I'm having trouble getting Regin just right too, so don't feel bad. If I really pour myself into a character (especially at higher levels) it can take me a couple weeks to get everything right. Thankfully we're only starting at 2.

Osirion

If I were to go Middle age (which I'm planning on right now), do you want to use the -1 physical +1 mental stat adjustments, or ignore them? I've seen it both ways, thus I ask.

Osirion

I'm trying to come up with a good persona or character profile before I decide on any class or race.

I'm thinking old right now. Adventurers are always so young

That's something. I'll propose an older (at least middle aged) character. Maybe bard (aiming for Pathfinder Chronicler) or maybe scroll-based wizard. The town historian and likable old guy. :)

Osirion

My curiosity is stirred. Pondering.

Osirion

I agree with Asmodeus as diety. Abadar if you don't want the evil.

Really, this could be a bunch of builds. Legalistic oracle. Sound striker. Inquisitor. Cleric.

This is really all about the flavor of it as there are no expansive rule sets dealing with this directly to define a build.

Profession: Lawyer or Craft: Contract Law is a must.

And contract law is so definitely a craft. :P

Osirion

But how would +4 apply to that? Maybe sneak attack dice on an attack with a slashing weapon?

Osirion

Ummm... Anybody?

Osirion

Quote:

Obedience: Perform a series of cuts upon the flesh while

periodically auto-asphyxiating. Gain a +4 profane bonus on all effects linked to slashing damage.

Is the damage caused by a slashing weapon included in these "effects"?

What exactly is an "effect linked to slashing damage"? I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

Maybe con Gaia later. We are lvl 1 after all. :)

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Ya, I mean, who let him in, anyway?

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

Ok, I haven't even started Character creation yet, so it'll be at least tonight, perhaps tomorrow before I can post in gameplay. I only have a rough idea of my character and I read the entire SRD (except GM stuff) last night. Please bear with me. :)

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

I will be the noble-born thief. It'll take me a while to read up on this thread, but I thought I'd introduce myself.

The character will be Olivius Telraven.

And I will to make it in the dungeon, and out of it. With your gold, Freemont. :P

*Stolen*

Fantastic idea. I have no qualms about this working (with the caveat that I know very little about phylactery rules).

Casting Strangling Hair

Note that this will work with any hair. Any. Hair.

Said hair cannot be targeted. It also grapples the foe, yet not your hirsute self.

Contrary to the name, the beard is not hair. It's a metal blade extending from the chin.

This feels like a cornerstone or something he is desperately trying to keep quiet. I would ask if this is a campaign cornerstone as mentioned above. That or being a less than confident GM are the only two reasons I can think of for this kind of thing.

Osirion

Then that curse would not affect armor spikes as they are not held.

Thanks for the quote. :)

Osirion

Not in the hands, no. Doesn't the curse specify hands?

Osirion

89. The League of Extraordinary Gentlepeople.
Gap in numbering due to me forgetting to number my last... oops.
An organization of the best and most skilled personal staff in the land. From this organization come the very best of butlers, maids, cooks, and any other kind of personal attendant imaginable. They are always in special need of groups of skilled individuals to locate and deal with members gone 'rouge' and murdered their employers or curdled the milk.

The Parasol Society

A thing one must be cordially invited to join. Consists mainly of the most well to do ladies in town. Insists that never actually seeing the sky is advantageous for the complexion and therefore enforces the constant use of small, colorful umbrellas among its membership.
Umbrellas as magical surveillance devices for prying upon high society personages is optional.

Osirion

As said above, that method is the stupid way of writing 1.5 in a system that uses " -" as a math symbol routinely.

Osirion

Armor would loose the broken condition as soon as it was no longer being touched by the hands as would anything else, if I remember the wording right.

Osirion

Full plate + Tower shield + armored kilt + at least 12 Dex + Ring of Protection + Amulet of Nat. Armor = at least 27. Likely 29 if the ring and amulet are both +2.

Oh, you want me to Cast Spells?! Whatever...

Well, I am not sure you can worship Rovagug, and Gorum, at the same time.

That's the only way you could get Merciless Rush and Spiked Destroyer.

Heh, my Strix Hellknight worships Gorm, Calistria, Phrasma and Pazuzu. All at the same time. :)

He sees each as representing a certain life stage and pays each their due homage, though he is no priest.

Osirion

I asked for my Tetori I'm playing, like you. :) *tetori-five*

Osirion

Assuming a grappling focused character who's grappling CMB will be higher than his base CMB, is the CMB mentioned in the tie-up text above the grapple CMB (assuming you were grappling to pin to tie-up) or is it your unmodified CMB?

Osirion

Male Father Nerd 3, Father 2, Obsessive Poster 2

I'm referring to in-game days since the fire at the tavern (Caedmon thread), assuming your thread started the same day as that fire. Mine did. I am 2.5 days out from that event now.

Osirion

El Ronza:

Fine by me. That way I can groan when circumstances force us together. :)
As I'm in town only once every few months our hate-hate relationship should probably still be on a low summer. What do you think started it?

Edit to the edit: fixed. :)

Assuming I had all the feats is this order of events possible?

• Unarmed trip (assume improved trip and improved unarmed)
• Attack of Opportunity (AoO) from greater trip
• Ki Throw to move the target to another square
• Vicious stomp because they go prone
• Binding throw to start a grapple because of Ki throw (swift action)

That wording might make it better?

Osirion

*Takes noted for his Phalanx Fighter*
I say it's legal, though I have no new arguments to offer.

Osirion

XMorsX- Why alternate channel, if I may ask. I didn't see anything particularly useful about them.

Osirion

If you are a Sable Company marine, will your DM permit you to rally some troops or city guard to assist?

Osirion

I think people think of catapult ammo as being absolutely huge rocks when this build requires smaller rocks. That might be why.

Osirion

People on here usually split hairs between the weapon "counting as" or being "used as" and actually being one handed. Your GM may vary.

Osirion

I have a friend who has cherry picked the most powerful spells and his character is stupid break-the-game-math overpowered. But he is a corner, corner, my GM is insane for allowing this, case of a lvl 20 Arenea Litch transmute sorceror with an artifact sword. Can do over 13,000 damage on a full attack (yes, in melee. With near 100 AC).
However, it is a very specific build (that I don't have the details on) that only works the way he's done it (which I don't know). The vast majority of the spells are fine for normal use. Lvl 20 crazy talk is no reason to discount an entire product. For example, I found the Paladin spells to be perfectly acceptable.

Osirion

I can't believe noonne has linked Ashiel's guide to Adventure Preperation yet.

Osirion

Can you please point me to that thread?

Osirion

But where does it say that other than in the fluff of the Two weapon fighting feat?

Osirion

Jayder- Where does it state that the limit is one? All I can find is that wielding in the off hand gives you an additional at a penalty, which can be extrapolated to gaining a third with a Boot Blade.

Osirion

I wasn't thinking of threatening, this is more focused on full attacks.

Osirion

Jayder - The argument #1 holds that you don't need the feat Two weapon fighting to two weapon fight. It just makes it better. You can two weapon fight without the feat. Therefore you can gain an extra attack with the boot blade

Osirion

If a character is dual wielding, may he use a blade boot to gain an additional attack?

Argument 1) Yes. The rules do not require feats to wield weapons. The feats make it better. Therefore, one can use a boot blade to gain an extra attack in combat.

Argument 2) No. Pathfinder assumes two "hands". You cannot wield a two handed weapon and armor spikes, for instance. Therefore both your hands are taken by the two weapon fighting and you would need a third "hand" to wield the boot blade.

Can someone make this clear for me?
