biggest problem i had was saving maps for latter use :(

OK I am running a pbp for the Adventure Path Jade Regent and am trying to find the best way to present the Maps with out having to redue them for every encounter.

One person suggested // but I have discovered that it is no longer possible to create a new account with them and the site admin is unresponsive to emails.

I am looking for something simple that can be URL sited and updated...

any suggestions?

I really like the way this Warlock came out, I wish I had spotted it before today :)

Job well done

Ok after working with them some more the saves and hd as you have changed them is much better.
I agree about the damage being a little lower.

Just getting a look at the changes in 3.0 :)

in the play test i rolled out the monk straight up slaughtered the avatar one on one but (that could of been the rolls to)
more to come :) and yes I would love a final copy :)

Actually will be played on another site but the PRD through Paizo will be the only allowed source for traits, feats, and spells. I found that the discussions here are more "sound".

A lot of the group I game with like the idea of building their own class if you will from feats and skills. That's where the Idea for this came from.

take away the class bonuses and be careful on what feats you chose if you want to do something in a level or two...

simplified ROLE playing instead of power ROLL playing was the goal

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I agree with the fact if it is "one" class it needs to be a d8.
the idea of splitting the four into separate classes with each class gaining bonuses/penalties is interesting too.

Still working on putting together different leveled characters.

No promises But I will look it over. Defiantly looks interesting..

Good Question, the game I am planing is home brewed as well
there is a huge gap between the natives and the new arrivals.

mostly being that those who wish to be one of the new folks (humans-post event) will have advanced firearms (set number of weapons and ammo in the world and unable to recreate), no armor, and unable to understand magic until at least 4th level. Where humans-native will be able to be spellcasters with a (1st feat) Bloodline (1st Human bonus feat) a Domain, and (1st Spellcaster bonus feat) Wildshape.

Elves will be unable to handle "crafted metal" in any form,
Dwarves will be sturdy defenders and craftsmen.
gnomes and halflings I am still thinking about.
Orcs, Goblins, Giants will more or less be standard foes but with very established hierarchies

thread I started on seeking advice

I will have a large map but even those native will know that the lands were changed in the event and nothing will be what they know.

I am thinking about running a E8 Generic classed home brewed game. The reason I am going generic is that there are TOOOOOOO many options out there and as that this will be a play by post game I want it to be more about the characters and their skills and community then running a dungeon and killing everything.
with the classes below I realize that a spellcaster will be extremely powerful individuals, they will also be rare and those who are NPC's will be leaders opposing the rising character players. I am looking for feed back on what else I could modify to make the game more appealing to prospective players

This benefit applies only when subject is wearing no armor, light armor, or medium armor, and not carrying a heavy load. Apply this bonus before modifying the subject's speed because of any load carried or armor worn. This bonus stacks with any other bonuses to the subjects land speed.

Channel Energy (Su): as clerics ability. Regardless of alignment, any Spellcaster can release a wave of energy by channeling the power of their faith through their presented holy (or unholy) symbol. This energy can be used to cause or heal damage, depending on the type of energy channeled and the creatures targeted. Perquisite; can be chosen only on Spellcaster's 1st level; Knowledge Religion 1+ranks
~A good Spellcaster (or one who worships a good deity) channels positive energy and can choose to deal damage to undead creatures or to heal living creatures. An evil Spellcaster (or one who worships an evil deity) channels negative energy and can choose to deal damage to living creatures or to heal undead creatures. A neutral Spellcaster who worships a neutral deity (or one who is not devoted to a particular deity) must choose whether they channel positive or negative energy. Once this choice is made, it cannot be reversed.
Channeling energy causes a burst that affects all creatures of one type (either undead or living) in a 30-foot radius centered on the Spellcaster. The amount of damage dealt or healed is equal to 1d6 points of damage plus 1d6 points of damage for every two Spellcaster levels beyond 1st (2d6 at 3rd, 3d6 at 5th, 4d6 at 7th). Creatures that take damage from channeled energy receive a Will save to halve the damage. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the Spellcasters level + the Spellcasters CHA modifier. Creatures healed by channeled energy cannot exceed their maximum hit point total—all excess healing is lost. A Spellcaster may channel energy a number of times per day equal to 3 + their CHA modifier. This is a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity. A Spellcaster can choose whether or not to include themselves in this effect. A Spellcaster must be able to present their holy symbol to use this ability.

Domains: as clerics ability. add ONE Domain spell list to Known spells and listed powers from the domain Perquisite: Spellcaster; Knowledge Religion 1+ranks (can be taken Multiple times, different domains)
~Each domain grants a number of domain powers, dependent upon the level of the Spellcaster, as well as a number of bonus spells. A Spellcaster gains one domain spell known for each level of spells they can cast
In addition, a Spellcaster gains the listed powers from the domain, if she is of a high enough level. Unless otherwise noted, using a domain power is a standard action.

Bloodline: as sorcerer ability. A Spellcaster's source of magic comes from somewhere in their heritage that grants them extra spells, bonus feats, an additional class skill, and other special abilities. This source can represent a blood relation or an extreme event involving a creature somewhere in the family's past. Perquisite; can be chosen only on Spellcaster's 1st level. (Bloodlines will be slightly modified for E8 if chosen by the Spellcaster)

Wild Shape (Su): as druid ability. Spellcaster's can turn themselves into any ONE (once chosen can not changed) Small or Medium creatures with the animal type and back again 1 per day/per level. This ability functions like the beast shape I spell, except as noted here. The effect lasts for 1 hour per Spellcaster's level, or until they changes back. Changing form (to animal or back) is a standard action and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity. The form chosen must be that of an animal with which the Spellcaster is familiar. Perquisite: can be chosen only on Spellcaster's 1st level.

Large Wild Shape (Su): as Wild Shape, except Spellcaster can select a SECOND type of creature with the Animal type of large, small or medium (once chosen can not changed). Perquisite: Spellcaster 4th level, Wild Shape

Elemental Wild Shape (Su): as Wild Shape, this ability functions as elemental body I spell. the effect lasts 1hr/per Spellcaster's level. Perquisite: Spellcaster 6th, Wild Shape, Large Wild Shape

You said they were in a new town that they planned to base out of? Well if you use your monk to start a new temple your players will always have someone and someplace they can go for rest and recuperation. Basically you can turn him into a "Inn Keeper" that your players will always be happy to return to. You would also have someone who could pass on the "gossip" to the players so they would have a direction for there next adventure.

Well once I pointed out that the PS is under RAW rules he agreed that it was taking advantage of the rule as the in the CORE rules it stats MIN age, and felt that the "intent was for older aged characters"

1 person marked this as a favorite.

wow just got a response from the coordinator:

Kind of an odd choice for a character, but technically legal. On page five of the Guide, under "Abilities": "Characters can be of any age, but do not alter their ability scores as a result of this roleplaying choice."

Thank you every one for the input ... I will be linking my agreement to this thread as well as the prd rules

That's the argument that I raised and have yet to get a response from the sanctioned coordinator ... they wanted to start being rule lawyers but i don't think they know the rules...

a character has been introduced to Pathfinder Society play that I have to question about...

Female Chaotic Good Human Fighter (Weapon Master), Level 1, Init +4, HP 12/12, Speed 20 ft
AC 16, Touch 12, Flat-footed 14, Fort +4, Ref +2, Will +0, Base Attack Bonus 1
Horse Chopper (Brace / Trip) +5 (1d12+6, x2)
Dagger (spring loaded Wrist Sheath) (Can draw this as a swift action) +5 (+3 if Thrown) (1d4+4, 19-20/x2)
Armored Coat (+4 Armor, +2 Dex)
Abilities Str 18, Dex 14, Con 14, Int 13, Wis 11, Cha 7
Condition None
CMB: +5, CMD: 17, FCMD: 15

My question is that they claim their character a human female AGE 10 is legal with the stats that they put on their character sheet... It was my understanding that society sanction play had to fall under the minimum age for class (for a human fighter age 15)
I could understand allowing a starting age younger then that if the young template was applied which would :
Young Template per : tml#young-creature-(cr--1)

Quick Rules: +2 on all Dex-based rolls, –2 on all other rolls, –2 hp/HD.

Rebuild Rules: Size decrease by one category; AC reduce natural armor by –2 (minimum +0); Attacks decrease damage dice by 1 step; Ability Scores –4 Strength, –4 Con, +4 size bonus to Dex.

where do the rules stand on this one?

12(+1), 10(+0), 8(-1), 10(+0), 14(+2) 14(+2)<------ will go with I think
