Just finished season one of Agents on Netflix. 5 stars.

Scarred Witch Doctor uses con for spell DCs, levels of spells the can cast, and hex DCs. Bonus spells per day is still aint based.

Really hoping for prestige classes getting redone, but I know putting my faith in paizo for that is not a wise decision.

Let's hope we are all (pleasantly) surprised.

It's a cruddy move.

Wizards can.

Bring up prepared casters reminds me of a theory someone had back before ACG was being sold: the current FAQs and erratas were being issued solely to make the options in the book look better.

Take, for instance, the Wizard archetype Spell Sage, who can cast any spell from other class lists(three. Bard, Cleric, and Druid!). At any time. Sound familiar? That's right, it's better than what people were doing with Paragon Surge.

But it comes at the high cost of taking rounds to cast and using up two slots of the same level. That's horrid, but "legal". But is it still better than the Paragon Surge abuse?

Paragon Surge Abuse

  • Took two feats
  • A specific race(or human with a Feat)
  • A third level slot cast before the spells
  • Only worked with sorcerer/wizard spells
  • Came into play at level 11.

Spell Sage

  • Wizard only
  • Starts at level 2
  • Has longer casting times
  • Can be any spell from three other class lists

Tacticslion, if Paizo had a subscribe button, you'd be on my list. You've made excellent posts describing your stance on the FAQ subject.

A lot of Paizo's FAQs.

Oh, and temper tantrums. Can't have those messing up my games.

Some new spells in the ARG(like the Oread spells) were made options for Qinggong Monks.

Any time I spend not thinking about how that happened is better for my sanity.

There was a time I didn't like the magus or the cavalier, but in a Final Fantasy game my character has levels in both and I'm having quite a bit of fun. :)

Given the time limit the Wrath of the Righteous recruitment had i wasn't able to complete my submission, but a shot at Kingmaker, the adventure path I've wanted to play the most?

I love it.

Buffs to ranged attacks made from outside the field aren't removed. Same with reach Attacks.

Though if your DM has done this, whatever you do won't work. Talk to him.

Monks are proficient with monk weapons. Seriously, why waste a feat to get something you should already be proficient in?!

@Mark

Will the errata explain the crit part of Pummeling Style? Still wondering if a single crit makes the entire full attack a crit or if a single crit makes the attack count as a crit for on-crit affects.
There are, shall we say, many different things involving Pummeling Style that are currently unclear. I am hoping we will have an erratum that will make Pummeling Style crystal clear, with no need for FAQs. If not, I'm ready to FAQ it as well.

Please, please, please don't let it be another Crane Wing nerf. Martials need nice things. Unarmed martials even more so.

Also, keep up the good work! :)

Hey, Spellslinger is pretty good... if you take the next 19 levels in a different spellcasting class.

I've got two from "Gip, the Crazed God!" a goblin Sage Sorcerer that used the Words of Power system.

Upon finding a clay hut with only three walls: "let's sleep in there, no one ever comes through the fourth wall!"
When the GM acted like he was going to his cup at me: "I'm sorry... Gip said to the GM."

Earlier, talking to a Garuda-Blooded Aasimar in the party, the discussion turned into playful insults and the like.

Gip: "I hope you get you-flu!"

Finally, Lyle Highhill, Halfling paladin, had to be dragged by a Goliath(3.5 race) into a bar full of demons and devils -pulling up cobblestone trying to stay out of it mind you- and screamed "I can't go in there, I'll get us all killed!"

The Mariachi Band: one Court Bard, one Arcane Duelist Bard, one Sound Striker Bard, one Sandman Bard. If you need a fifth, throw in a Magician Bard.

At that point it kinda doesn't matter what the other side of their Gestalted are. ;)

With the right rouge talent(archetype?) you don't even need the PCs to set the first trap off.

A necromancer. But not a normal one, oh no. This one wears full plate made from what looks like bones(reflavored Dragonhide). What's with that giant constrictor snake? Wait, what do you mean he's casting Greater Magic Fang?! He just cast Shield.. and Shield of faith...

The truth: it's a Nagaji Druid(Naga Aspirant archetype) with the Shade of Uskwood feat.

I suggest the Spelleater archetype, just to heal a little easier.

Whitney's Miltank

Oh, you probably meant pathfinder stuff. ;)

Banning classes really gets me disinterested, even if I've never played the class or plan too, and giving no reason for banning it.

Or having a recruitment title something along the lines of "anything goes" and then saying no 3rd party.

Aren't the blasts and stuff spell-like abilities? They shouldn't be able to be cut off from their abilities anymore than other casters are(an antimagic field).

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!

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.
