Not once did I advocate violence against someone or depriving people of their rights. I simply do not think that putting gay npcs in Pathfinder products to promote some personal beliefs about homosexuality that the developers personally have is appropriate. After all, no one would bat an eye or care (even the most staunch pro-gay supporters) if there were no gay npcs in their products, so why do otherwise? On a striclty pragmatic level, no one is going to refuse to buy Paizo products if they don't have gay npc randomly inserted into them, but you better believe some parents will not allow their children to buy or play Rise of the Runelords if they are aware of the gay couple in Sandpoint because they don't want their kids exposed to that. Before I leave this thread for good, I'd like to point out that the only ones spouting hate and practicing bigotryin this thread are the supposed "tolerant" pro-gay warriors. Look at yourselves before you judge others.
My human oracle of life has survived (well technically died once and got reincarnated) to 12th level, but we have had a lot of party deaths. The TPK encouunter you described did kill one of our characters, but me and the sorcerer managed to take the necromancer out. This is a difficult adventure path. You need a lot of surviability (hit points, AC, saves) and good tactics, scouting, and prebuffing.
Exactly, I don't need sexuality mucking up my D&D or Pathfinder fun. It's not supposed to be part of the game. I must say that I am extremely disturbed about this little tidbit about Sandpoint. They make the one guy that isn't okay with the homosexual couple evil? That truly is bigoted. Yes, let's villify everyone that has moral objections to homosexuality. That sort of thing definitely has no place in Pathfinder.

Exactly, I look at the random placement of gay npcs in modules and scenarios, and think "Is this really necessary?". Is Pathfinder, a fantasy roleplaying game, really the proper venue for such issues? I think not. If someone wants to play a "book of erotic fantasy" homebrew game,and include this kind of stuff, fine, but I really don't want to see it in published adventures and PFS scenarios.
I have to say that Pathfinder is supposed to be a game that facilites lighthearted fun. The last thing I want in the game is something that promotes the homosexual agenda or any other political or philosophical agenda. I was highly annoyed at having to change the gender of the love interest in "The Midnight Mauler" so I could run the scenario in good conscience. This sort of thing has no place in your typical rpg game.
Our DM is just on the tough side plus some bad decisions and bad luck thrown in. It sounds like yours actively wants to kill PCs. I feel for you.
So far this is his first time DMing for our group and no one has gone the crafting route. In this AP, you move around a lot with little downtime, so I'm not sure that crafting would be that feasible.
Our DM's think alike. I don't mind less magic items because I want it to be about my character and not his loot, but the game does assume you have proper WBL gear, and I'm pretty sure he hasn't adjusted the encounters accordingly.
You can't go wrong with a Paladin--I'm playing a Paladin Archer in Carrion Crown right now (but only because the GM asked me not to play my Oracle of Life--he felt that I healed too well such that I removed all danger).
You can tell your DM he shouldn't worry about that. I have saved the party's bacon several times, especially in the early parts, but we've still had plenty of deaths.
Would be a good idea if the DM wasn't so against "magic item stores" in this campaign. We've been able to buy little beyond low level basic consumables. We bought some weapons an armor but had limited seledtion and had to pay through the nose for it.
just as an aside, don't oracles already automatically know all spells with the word "cure" in them?
Yeah, they are still spells known so I listed them. I forgot to add levitate, minor image, and telekinesis from my curse as well as summon monster V. Should I get summon monster VI next?
I wasn't aware of that feat. Sounds nice.
So I am looking for advice on what to do feat and spell selection with my human life oracle in carrion crown that just hit 12th level.
Str 14 (16)
Feats: Alignment Channel, Extra Channel, Great Fortitude, Improved Channel, Quick Channel, Quicken Spell, and Selective Channel
Magic Items: Dusty Rose Ioun Stone, +2 Morningstar, Ring of Force Shield,+2 Breatplate, +2 Amulet of Natural Armor, +2 Ring of Protection, +2 Cloak of Resistance, Belt of Giant's Stregth + 2, Headband of Incredible Wisdom +2, +1 Shapechanger Bane Dagger
As you can see, our DM has been stingy with the magic items which concerns me.
The other members of the party are an aasimar cleric 5(pahrasma)/ holy vindicator 6, elven cat (forget the name)sorcerer 9, human druid 9 (cat's cohort),a nd human ninja 11.
I have seen a high level witch in play, and they can be almost as good as wizard with some healing to boot. I gurantee that a single classed witch would be much more powerful than a gimped multiclassed mystic theurge.
I hear you. I've done the same thing, and it does suck. It's why few people wanted to play the cleric prior to 3.0. Even now, they still don't.

It is a possibility. I have been playing in a Carrion Crown campaign and we have had about 10 PC deaths. That is with some wands of CLW (which never even got used up), lots of potions, and my uber healing life oracle that channels like crazy. You are being way too nice if death isn't a "possibility" because of wands of cure light wounds. They are pretty much useless in combat except in the first two levels when most PC's won't have them anyway.

Exactly. Would you prefer the other side of the coin, where every combat has PC's near death, and they have to go back to town to rest for days or weeks, thus putting the campaign on hold? I know most players would bail on a campaign like this, me included.
As a backup for carrion crown he's a cavalier (beast rider) 1/barbarian(mounted fury/savage barbarian) 11. No armor. Big wolf mount.
Pathfinder society. Beast rider cavalier one with the oreint belt (forget name) and a klar/morning star with twf. Horse mount for now.

After scouring the internets for a proper Azog mini, the closest i came was Pathfinder's own half-orc barbarian. His outfit is very similar to Azog's. Gut the blade off of his axe, and it will look like a flanged mace. I am not too concerned with coloration, but it could be white washed for the albino look I suppose.
I must have missed that. Thanks for the info.
Except horselord doesn't give you a giant wolf, just a horse. Try again.
The idea is to make a Pathfinder version of him that is inspired by the movie character. I'm thinking around level 12. I am also curious how to make him a Pathfinder Society character starting from level 1 and to progress to him to BBEG coolness. Obviously he won't be an evil orc warlord, but a CN half-orc beastrider or beastrider/mounted fury may work.
For those of you who have seen the Hobbit, how would you make Azog the Defiler? I was thinking a orc barbarian with the mounted fury and savage warrior archetypes with some levels of mammoth rider to get a giant wolf (warg) to ride. Anyone have any better ideas? What would his big mace equate to? An earthbreaker, heavy mace, morningstar?

Well, the left may portray themselves as "tolerant", but they are, in fact, only tolerant if you agree with their views completely. Don't like same sex marriage, and state it publicly. Be prepared for the left to vandalize your stores, have leftist mayors threaten to keep your business out of their cities, and have liberals threaten to charge you with violating "hate speech" laws. That's exaclty what happened when the president of Chik-Fil-A voiced his opinion. Obama's administration has been harassing tea party groups with IRS audits for years now. You can't tell me that isn't politically motivated. I am not saying the right is perfect, but I see much less repression of human rights from them than from the left. Let's not forget that the NAZI's started as leftists. They were a socialist party.
You mean his awesome "jobless recovery'. Give me a break. The only reason unemployment numbers go down anymore is because the labor department manipualtes the numbers, and people stop looking for work. It's unreal how many jobs blocking domestic oil production, EPA regulations, and Obamacare have eliminated or prevented. He has destroyed far more jobs with his liberal pro-environmental policies than his so called stimulus ever created.

What has he DONE to DESERVE a second term?
Finally someone who speaks reason. Come on, give him another chance. He's only increased the national debt more than all other previous presidents combined and pushed through the largest tax increase on the middle class in history. He still needs another term to complete our transformation into a third world socialist country with him as dictator in chief.
For one thing, you should have what he looks like at all the levels or at least the various level ranges. Anyone can build an awesome 20th level character. What about all the levels he has to survive through? Stat him out a 1st 4th, 8th 12th and 16th levels as well. Then you get a better idea of if he measures up or not.

True. It just takes a bit of creativity. Hellknights and signifiers could be from an elite order of Bane or Asmodeus worshipers in FR. Mammoth lord works perfect for Uthgart barbarians. Winter witch sounds like something from Unapproachable East. Noble scion works perfect for some Waterdhavian noble. Sleepless detective is a shoe in for a watch detective in a big city. Sure, not all of them work out of Golarion, but if you see a few, you and your players would like to try in FR, it could be worth picking up.
