So it's like this? well! similar?

I dont know about epic, but I had a character die one his first session.

He was a Wild Rager Barbarian 2/Druid 4, and we had just gone to investigate a cave, only to find a crazed old man(a wizard) and his fast zombie troll, which popped out of vegetation to catch me flat-footed.

after two rounds of taking on the troll alone, and going to 16 Hp while raging, I took it down(4 hits with a greataxe while raging and using Power Attack will do that. 88 damage!) I stepped up to the mage during a full-attack and tried to get him with my gore(Lesser Fiend Totem), missing.

On the Wizard's next turn, he took one look at me, all bloody and torn up from beating his troll, that he risked everything and started casting a spell. Cast defensively? Check. Missed my AoO because it was a ranged attack? Check.

Enervation struck me square in the chest, and I took the full 4 levels the spell could deal, making me lose 20 HP, fall unconscious, lose my 12 HP from raging, and go to -18 of 16.

Somewhere in the Mwangi Expanse, an ankylosaurus roams around wearing +1 Chain Barding. :)

Or, for a more Indian Jones approach, an illusory boulder "trap". It is, in fact, a trap... because after a few fake boulders, they wont know when a real one is coming towards them!

Fun Fact: Deer occasionally do eat meat.

I've also used that suggestion(deer's eating wolves) in a similar thread a while ago.

A made a template I never used called Spellpowered. It could be applied to anything corporeal, and gave the creatures small, stackable buffs whenever a spell was cast within so many feet of it.

I based it of a Magic: The Gathering card called Kiln Fiend.

You know how some people can hear things others can't? Well, have a room full of wind chimes. Eerily quiet.

"Perception Trap"
Low DC: Fort Save or Perception penalties fir 1d6 minutes.
Medium DC: Fort Save or Deafness for 1d10 minutes.
High DC: Fort Save or be permanently deafened.

Encountering a similar trap really made a fellow player in a play-by-post get riled up because it went against the normal "find the trap, avoid it's effects" thing.

I find these two responses rather important, but unfortunately neither of them necessarily account for RAW.

Response from Dale McCoy Jr(President of Jon Brazer Enterprises and Designer of Sacred Fist Archetype) 09/19/2014
"If a player in a game I was running asked me if they wanted to play a warpriest/monk, I'd allow the stacking. IMO, you are still giving up some class abilities of the monk when you are taking warpriest levels and the same is true with the reverse. This archetype allows them to harmonize well, in the same way that many PrCs allow for multiclass harmonization.

But that is how I would rule it at my table. I'm not sure how the people at Paizo will decide for PFS."

Response from James Jacobs(Creative Director) 09/10/2014
"I cannot imagine anything other than these bonuses overlapping. Stacking would be too ridiculous.

But that said, like all rulebook questions, it's better asked over there than here."

And yet...

I know similar questions have been asked before, so bare with me if I'm being thick-skulled.

Ability modifies are usually untyped bonuses, and as such they stack with anything except themselves. This has been mentioned in previous questions. But my question, is what if a stat is giving you a typed bonus?

For example, lets say an oracle with Sidestep Secret has the Osyluth Guile feat. Sidestep adds your charisma modifier (an untyped bonus) to AC. Osyluth Guile adds you charisma modifier as a dodge bonus to AC vs one opponent. Would the dodge bonus stack with the untyped bonus?

Thanks

Ability modifiers are always untyped modifiers unless some ability specifically says otherwise.

Furthermore, dodge bonuses ALWAYS stack.

Untyped bonuses always stack.

My aunt has a nickname for me that includes 'monkey' in it, while my dad has one for me that has 'turkey' as part of it. Most of my family calls me by my middle name(because I'm a 3rd, named after my dad who was named after his dad).

I'm Dragonborn3 because when I set up my first email address(that I didn't forget the password two, anyway >.< ), I'd fallen in love with the dragonborn from Races of Dragon, and I was a 3rd.

I'm betting I'm the only one who likes the Young Character rule set in this thread. There's retraining rules too, you know, and as a wizard you'd start off as an Adept and not be totally useless. :)

Tonight in a home game, the boss for the session, a corrupt noble, surrendered after he tried to attack my character, fumbled(two natural 1s in a row) and ended up critting himself for 20 points of damage. We're level 2.

My character is now boasting he can make people stab themselves instead of hurting him. XD

Start with the Tarrasque's, then remove all it's special abilities and give it regeneration(missiles). Add a fire damage breath weapon. :)

Because the feat doesn't say "a light or one-handed slashing weapon", just "a one-handed slashing weapon", it doesn't work for light weapons.

Seriously, just burn all your Paizo books if the Arcanist is that off putting.

Enlighten, maybe-- doubt it, it's Death, after all.

Maybe if he stopped shouting one day-- who wants to be hanging out with someone that shouts all the time? Yeeesh!

Not to mention the bone fetish, yuck. Ew, and double yuck. Zombie flesh? Puh-lease.

Bones Oracle looks like a pretty solid choice. As early as level one, you can have a skeleton cohort for 3+Cha rounds per day, then you can get Animate Dead as a bonus spell and Command Undead as a bonus feat. You also get a revelation that lets you inflict negative levels as a ranged touch attack. And that's before you even pick and feats, spells known, or even your starting race.

For a feat, pick up Experimental Spellcaster(found here) and use it to get Undeath as a 2nd, ranged, no material component undead maker! (:<

That's it. Everyone, and I mean everyone, back away from the game until Lyn has time to get a new fuse and gives us the okay. I don't care about your reasons or arguments or all the other crap you might want to post about that'll cause conflict, l don't want you guys making Lyn leave the game.

Only warning.

It would be much simpler to add a line to Paragon Surge(yes, it's an errata. Update the free errata PDFs!) that says you can't use it to gain access to more spells known. Then get rid of this threads "FAQ" and everything is okay.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

What was so wrong about mixing magic anyway? It was a fun thing that helped add more stuff and alleviated cookie-cutter casters.

Oracle: "Hey, guys, I've worked really hard at it, and I've learned Magic Missile!"
Party: "Yay!"

*later*

Party: "Cast Magic Missle to stop the ghost!"
Oracle: "I can't. I've been trying to learn it since lv1, but now that I have it and it's taken up a spells known slot and three feats, I can't."

That doesn't make sense.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

So, since Improved Eldritch Heritage(Arcane) doesn't add the spells to your class list, it's absolutely useless for anyone not already using the Sorcerer/Wizard list now?

Ths also sounds like another "FAQ" nerf to Paragon Surge...

This is a sad day for oracles but it was needed. I wonder if this suggests the wandering lore spirit ability for the shamans is being redone. Removing free access to the wizard list for one class one month and then giving it to another the next would send rather mixed messages.

Funny you mention the shaman. There's been theories that certain FAQs are being made so the new classes "look better". Not sure I believe that, but some people do.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

But isn't that the point of the Feat when it's used that way? Why make a broad FAQ for a minor use?
