I saw someone once talking about using a huge aklys two handed for the 3D6 damage and some other shenanigans. But i digest, I am not sure that is an accurate depiction of an aklys descriptions vary but none i've seen mention a weirdly curving hook bit. It sounds more like either a javelin with a rope or a throwing spiked club.

I believe we have a guy playing a titan mauler using two.

new hunter-without-companion to dual wield two-handers meta?

Or a huge 4 armed ape two-handing and double wielding if you're into that type of thing.

I agree, I would go with the advice cnetarian gave above and use the extra gold earned to buy some bullets made from special materials.

My guess would be that he was playing high tier for something like Trial by Machine.

Yes i was playing Trial by machine. It didnt help that other characters where at a level 4-5. Plus I did get them flat footed the first round. I original thought the DR was 5 but when one one of the player found out through a knowlage check. I decided to stay away from the fight and amaizing that whole adventure i didnt recive dammage, Which was odd.

I looked into Ninja in Ultimate combat and it has pretty good ninja talents that i can use Such as Deadly Range: +10ft on sneak attack (it stacks). I can use the Rouge talent in excange for the ninja talent.

Your GM is brutal. I don't think he likes you. Maybe it's the red paint on your cheeks...

But making you start at level 1 when everyone else is level 4-5 is pretty harsh. Making characters that level fight iron golems is even more harsh. Letting you dip rogue, with or without the painted cheeks, is icing on the harshness cake.

The least he can do after all the pain he's putting you through is give you a silencer...

It's PFS...Year of the Robot.

I think the masterpiece you're looking for is The Requiem of the Fallen Priest-King.

If you want to take alchemist for explosive missile make sure that your GM will allow it with two-handed firearms, or help getting it FAQ'd.

Yeah, I was previewing my victory post for like 6 minutes and then got a phone call and it all slipped away. I suppose with the avatar it's better to have failed.

Ehhh.... If you are going Unchained, you can do really fun things with the Barb.

Sure Bloodrager has more tricks but I love me my CMB Barbs.

- Strength Stance. (Big CMB and HUGE Strength check bonus.)
- Knockback. (Puny humans. Becomes really good when you can discard your worst attack for a full CMB + Strength Stance bull rush.)
- Quickened Reflexes for more attacks of opportunity.

This is combined, of course, with Bull Rush feats! No one can be the Hulk without being able to topple down opponents effortlessly.

- Spiked Destroyer is very fun with Knockback, give up one attack to gain a Spiked Armor attack!
- Greater Bull Rush can give your party AoOs.
- Rhino Charge is kewl. Gives you more options in battle.

Or you could not go Unchained and have Spell Sunder, which by itself is better than literally everything the Unchained Barbarian has to offer.

And as human you can pump up your superstition with the favored class bonus.

I don't know about the unchained barbarian, but if you want body bludgeon at 10th level you will probably want to be able to grapple without drawing aoo's.

Maybe they could just give yellow stars with holes in them to people that do that so we can know they're cheesers.

Street Performer bard gets a bonus equal to half their level to bluff checks.

The biggest confusion I encounter is with Tier 1-2 scenarios, since they're newer but still don't have an out-of-tier box for gold.

Explaining that you still need to calculate out-of-tier gold often rewards me with at least one blank stare.

There's actually a post from John Compton saying that for The Confirmation everyone just gets the gold for whichever tier was played. I assumed the same applied to The Wounded Wisp, but I don't know if that was ever explicitly stated.

There's also one for out of tier gold.

Inner Beauty is 1/day, so it can't be used to enhance Day Job rolls.

Also, taking 10 would only result in a total of 30, which is 75gp, not 150gp.

Assuming it was a street performer bard, they have gladhanding which earns them double money on performance checks.

You still have 5 more games to go for star 1.

I've got a 6 hour layover from approximately 11am - 5pm at LAX on the 26th of May and realized that PAIZOCON might have some travelers in the same situation. So I thought I'd just put this out there to see if there were any other others that might be interested in some layover PFS at LAX.

Shadow Lodge

A little research shows you're already on there anyway. You already know this so I'll just add to what the buzzard said for others.
Although it is a PFS forum and primarily used for organizing organized play along the front range the rockymountainpfs.com site also has sections for finding non-PFS games.

Shadow Lodge **

I just gave the options and the associated skill, but left out the DC to achieve it.

You can still play the ones you have, but to create a new one you need the boon.

The GM bought a GM screen.

I finally caved and bought one the other week. Two nights ago I showed up and was telling the players I'd finally be able to hit them and even get some crits. ;) Half way through the scenario when we got to the first combat I rolled 3 crits in my first 4 attacks and was hitting most of the night as opposed to my normal rolls of 5's or lower.

Shadow Lodge

At least you didn't get ninja'd. I'm pretty sure that happened to me at least once. Nice work though.

Not legal for play so far as I can tell. Unless it is listed somewhere other then Inner Sea Gods.

Inner Sea Gods: Spells: all spells on pages 228-245 are legal except ghoul hunger, spawn calling, and transplant visage. It's on 244.

For PFS you might want to look at the PFS Guide to Organized Play. That should help you understand the chronicle sheet you were given and the PFS rules for character generation.

Irwin Mainway: Okay, Miss, I wanna correct you, alright. The full name of this product, as it appears in stores all over the county, is Johnny Switchblade: Adventure Punk.Pathfinder: Advanced Class Guide. I mean, nothing goes wrong.. little girls buy 'em, you know, they play games, they make up stories, nobody gets hurt. I mean, so Barbie takes a knife once in a while, or Ken gets cut. You know, there's no harm in that. I mean, as far as I can see, you know?

I keep thinking it would be fun to do a King Maker version of Romance of the Three Kingdoms with two different groups under the impression at the first that there was only one group being run for it.

So is this supposed to be like an ask Jiggy thread where we ask him to do searches for us or do we just keep going about it the usual way of posting something that's wrong hoping he'll see it and look up our answer that way?

Shadow Lodge

Thanks Louis and John. That's pretty much what I was preparing to do, fortunately it didn't come down to that. I never know with this group. One week they'll take on some guards just doing their jobs and the next week they'll ignore a dozen feeding ghouls and search for secret doors because they haven't acted yet.

Spoiler:
It turned out to be a pretty entertaining encounter. The Swashbuckler handed out shots of the good stuff that they obtained in the previous encounter to the guard to get on the platform and directions to Pildapush's place. Then failed a bluff check with someone who noticed them. One of the barbarians quickly gathered up that problem and tried to give them some of the cheap stuff the Swashbuckler obtained for him but had his offering poured out at his feet.

After making their way to the docks they ended up drawing both encounters due to the Swashbuckler running right up onto the ship. She then ended up doing shots with a couple of the gnolls on the other side of the ship while everyone else fought. And then offered the rest of the bottle to whichever one could beat the other one so one ended up in the drink. They tried taunting the captain up into the fray, but he waited patiently for them to drop below, where he put some fear into them.

Good times.

Shadow Lodge

It is for PFS. Although I know the players are capable of getting in Pildapush's place unnoticed, they are also capable of causing a big disturbance. And the player's have gotten in the habit of throwing their weight around and I can't imagine them backing down from a fight if they end up getting the guards there. So when it says to bring the entirety of the Token Guard down on them I'm just trying to get a grasp on what an appropriate number would be.

how many Token Guards do I bring when I feel free to bring the entirety of the Token Guard down on PC's who want a fight?

A group of morons who were over wealth by level showed up thinking they could take on a dragon. Rinse gold. Repeat.
