Just going to point out, in light-hearted human, it's possible to swim in lava. How long you're swimming is another matter entirely. :)

I should make a character designed by you guys, that's a much better idea.

So this has stuck with me all through my shift at work. This is actually an interesting idea.* I don't think we have anyone with full blown amnesia so far, correct? Imagine picking just the race, gender, approximate age, and the gestalt classes.

All you get to make , backstory wise, is how they got to Avalon after forgetting everything. Someone else sends a backstory to Lyn. You, as a player, have no idea what the character may or may not have done! Why, for example, are they heroes in Town A, or have the people of Town B trying to lynch them? The possibilities are quite intriguing.

Yeah, as folks have pointed out, I feel that my record on designing and requesting/developing lawful good characters is pretty evident. Among the lawful good characters I've had a strong hand in designing or having done significant development work would be Lictor Sabinus, Irabeth, Queen Galfery, the fact that there's such a strong tradition of paladins who serve Abadar (who by all rights should NOT have that big of a paladin segment of his church, being lawful neutral), and more... all the way back to Burnt Offerings, which features the first officially gay character to appear in Pathfinder—a man who is also a paladin.

I've got to re-read that book. I feel like a list should be made for those who are interested in these things but can find the characters even when they're running the game. The diversity of this setting is a great thing.

And an illusionist would never be able to choose to disbelieve spell effects that he created and knows they are illusions. Ever.

But if he doesn't know...

The rest of your post shouldn't have bearing in a fantasy setting, by the way, where weirder things can and have happened. Are you saying someone cursed into failing their will saves against illusions still can't fail the saving throw? That someone who has a huge amount of the mental training needed to cast and create illusions can't relax their image of reality a little?

I simply don't agree.

Let's try a new tactic. Let's say someone is a Sorcerer who is of average intelligence and has no ranks in Arcana or Spellcraft. Does he or she know she's casting illusions and people aren't just strong enough to go "No, that won't work on me" from time to time?
That would be really fun, little timmy the sorc learned all these AMAZING spells from his master, whom he believes to be the most powerful sorcerer on the planet. Only as hes facing down his first troll does he find out that every one of his spectacular spells is an illusion, and thats how timmy lost his legs.

Except he wouldn't know they're illusions, just that this particular troll was able to ignore his spells somehow. :)

Because nailing down that region's alignment and thus nailing down the dragon's alignment would more or less be a full-on spoiler. One we don't want to reveal quite yet, but not one like "How did Aroden die" that we'll NEVER reveal.!

Anyone else think this is a HUGE spoiler in its own right? If he's a typical Lawful Good gold dragon, why hide it?

Or a nice, big Ultimate Kineticist book. Not Occult, just Kineticist. An entire book, so page count is much, much less of an issue.

You mean house rules paizo proposed? Paizo doesn't really follow their house rules a lot either.

Perform(Rock n Roll) seems appropriate.

A few ranged combatants are always nice to start hitting back liners. Acid Arrows and readied actions to attack a caster when they start casting a spell also work out. I loved using Magic Missile with the Orc Bloodline, for instance, because 5d4+10 that auto hits is nasty for Concentration DCs.

Improvised Weapon will work, and a Monk of the Empty Hand can do so, so much more than have a pillow fight. He can have a flaming, frost, pillow fight with pillows that deal his unarmed damage.

Any class and no one has yet to mention Psion? Definitely take a look at that if you like mind powers. It's by a third party company named Dreamscarred Press and can be found on the d20pfsrd.

In Serpent's Skull I've had characters die to poison. I've rarely seen poison anywhere else though, and no one has died from it in memory.

You know what would make a good Dragon AP? Being able to play a dragon. Not playing a Wyvaran, not taking levels in Dragon Disciple, and not using the Dragon Shape X spells.

Being. A. Dragon.

True , but a pet class usually have class features to support said pet instead of just having it there.

And a it is a important thing to me to have said pet from the point i start playing , so while in games that after level 4 i agree this covers it , in games the start before it doesnt help me.

I thank you guys for sharing the info anyway :D.

Why? Just buy the animal you want as your companion at lv1 if you can, and keep it alive to level 4(where it will become weaker most likely if it had more than 1 hit dice,) and you're set.

See, you say that, but Gip has been in multiple games where he died previously. I call him a Doctor Whoblin.

I looked at the Taking Ten rules just to be sure, because there is something bad for failure in this case, but it seems to be the case that you can. First time I ran this people nearly died. From falling rocks. It was amazing.

Open to the sky above, this exposed floor contains only some smashed furniture and a sprinkling of rubble. A trap door is set into the floor against the the northwest, but a stout timber has fallen across it. Working together, everyone can easily move it though, and descend into it.

The tower's large ground floor has mostly collapsed under the rubble, but along the western portion of the room a section remains clear of debris. An iron trap door set in the floor is directly below the one you just came down through. Shattered wooden furniture lies scattered around the corpses of two more green scaled kobolds....

Everyone has gained 100 experience.

"It's a wretched expression." Ramiel replies as he enters the room look quite well rested. He flicks some static electricity at Ammon anyway. "Stop shouting. Demon kin or not, it's no excuse for rudeness." He chuckles.

Spent my night teaching an online friend how to play Pathfinder while also playing other rpg stuff.

He too down three goblins, scared a bunch of marsh deer when he missed them with his arrows, took down a marshclaw(fresh water reefclaw) with three arrows(five if we count the two times he miss), and over all had a great time. He mentioned he was going to ask his college gaming club if anyone played pathfinder there. I had a lot of fun DMing the mini adventure too.

All in all, this was a great night! (^-^)

Ratfolk Adventurer.

A rival adventurer is sick and tired of his finds and his treasure being taking by rivals he knows are not nearly as competent as him! Now it's time to take out the competition...

Treant Firefighter.

Long has Treebeard watched over his forest, using his druidic magic to calm too vicious storm, reshape the land after earthquakes, and heal plants and animals alike.

This all changed when orcs began to travel through his forest. At first, he simply let them pass. They were trying to sneak through, after all. They were caught though, by a group of adventurers that in employ of the nearby city. The ensuing battle between party and army left his precious forest ravaged by magical fires and Treebeard himself nearly dead. As a last ditch effort to survive long enough to enact his vengeance on the fire wielding sorceress, Treebeard envoked dark and twisted nature magics to rise from the ashes of his home... as a burning lich.

Play other games, like Munchkin or Betrayal in the House on the Hill instead, so everyone can still have fun but no one misses out on the campaign. It's what my groups do.

Does the last one require you to toss blessed coins to make it holy rain up in there?

Play a goblin. That always seems to make my characters my exciting. XD

It might take away a domain, but the Evangelist gets bardic performance. That opens up all kinds of rp stuff, which is what can make anything exciting to play, really. Maybe a combat maneuver cleric of some kind?

Definitely like those suggestions. Adding to my list of potential house rules later.

Ha.

I just wrote thousands of words on Aroden for Pathfinder #100.

"What happened to Aroden" is exactly none of them. ;)

I feared for a minute the 100th(!!!!) Pathfinder would explain what happened to him because, you know, 100 is an awesome milestone! Congrats to all of Paizo.

While I don't have anything in particular to add to the thread, I will say I agree we need new counterspell rules. It's sad when readying an action to cast magic missle on a caster when they start casting is better.
