Funny how Dodge bonus always stack except when FAQratta comes around.

One character idea I had for Carrion Crown was a gnome(actually a variant blooded Tiefling) Transmuter Wizard that worshipped Rovagug. He was also cannibilistic. He'd eat anything, and I planned to turn into things with bite and claw attacks.

Little did I know they I had been role playing him as I talked to others about him included all the bad things that happen when you eat people.

My GM was actually afraid I'd play Gnome-agug.

If we go by the FAQ there is no way(outside of the feats in Ultimate Intrigue) to hide a manifestation. That includes invisibility.

Evil Eye does not actually require the witch make eye contact, so there's no reason a mask or helmet would hide it.

If the witch is invisible they wouldn't notice her until she started to Cackle. They would, however, notice that creeping feeling Evil Eye mentions and I'd give them a Knowledge Arcana check to figure it out.

If you can link me to that talent I'd be quite appreciative.

It's been a while since I've had a character with any ranks perception let alone max ranks. Everyone else in the group always maxes it out, so there's no reason to.

Sharper may not be the word. You certainly can train yourself to process more information though. Remember the pictures where you have to find objects hidden in plain sight? Well, that's a way to gauge someone who is more skilled at Perception than someone who is not.

In the same vein, food critics are better at determining ingredients, and one famous muscian(the name of which I can't remember) could hear a song once and recreate it perfectly.

I do agree it shouldn't be a skill though. Level + Wisdom modifier would work just fine. I'd probably cut everything that gives a flat bonus to perception(like the Keen Senses of Elves and Halflings) in half though.

That's awesome, but is it a legal pick? It's not technically a weapon, but a wondrous item that functions like a weapon.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

What I've been doing lately is going through all the magic item slots and picking up neat items I'd otherwise ignore because I need the big six.

For instance, instead of a Cloak of Resistance, you might pick up a Cloak of the Hedge Mage. Instead of a Amulet of Natural Armor you can now pick up an Aegis of Recovery(I personally love these).

The problem is that they aren't reviewing the product but the product's name. They can share their opinion of that name here, in the Discussion thread, or send a private message to the developer of the class. While they are well within their rights to share their opinions, they have picked a poor way to do so.

So I had an idea for a neat little PBP that's a bit of a deviation from the norm. Usually I see “no third party material” or, rarely, “third party on a case-by-case basis” in recruitment threads. I understand why, but I know part of it is a stigma/myth that surrounds third party material in many cases. So, yeah, this one is gonna allow a lot of third party material, just for the heck of it.

CHARACTER CREATION:

Ability Scores: 25 Point Buy. This is for fun, so why not, eh?

Hit Points: Max! This goes for any animal companions, mounts, etc, but not for anything you summon with Summon Nature's Ally, Summon Monster, or similar abilities.

Background Skills: These are just nice. We're using them. :)

Level and Starting Wealth: Level 2 and 2,000gp. You've some minor experiences(might have been adventuring, might not) and had a particularly reward venture or investment.

Alignment: Any. However, I don't want people making Chaotic Evil characters. I feel that can be... disruptive and fits villains better.

Magical Item Crafting: Yes, but you have to abide by the 2,000gp limit. In this way you can have items(most likely scrolls or potions, depending on your class/feats) your character made personally, but not enough to outshine the rest of the players.

Races: Paizo's races(ask for higher powered ones if you're interested), and then some 3rd party races. These include Saurians, Entobian, Zif, Oakling, Numistian, Muse, Mogogol, Boggle(no Arcane Craft feat. It's too easy to make the +5 meaningless), Dragonkin, Seedling, Lizardfolk, and Briarborn.

Classes: Dreamscarred Press Psionic classes, Swashbuckler, Warlock, Artisan, Spell-Less Ranger and it's variant Skin-Changer Ranger, Dragonrider, Magister, Scholar, and the wonderful Spheres of Power system, classes, and archetypes.

Traits: Two. You can take a drawback for an extra Trait. You can reflavor the fluff of traits and even the name as long as you link to the original.

Automatic Bonus Progression: You may use it if you want, but it is not required.

The Adventures: I'm thinking either Murder's Mark or Dragon's Demand. Thoughts for other low level adventures?

Avalon is above and beyond a PBP. It's more like a year long creative writing collage.

Up until his death, my Dwarf Paladin enjoyed his Lifesurge Warhammer. The healing and extra crit range came in handy against quite a few of the tougher fights in Carrion Crown.

I'd imagine not taking care of your own equipment(not sharpening your bladed weapons, not polishing armor, etc) would displease him, as would being lazy/not training for combat.

If you play Paladins as Black and White you're going to fall because not everyone has the same "color spectrum". Hence all the old baby monster discussions.

So take Diehard as a feat. The HP damage can't kill you, even if it can't be healed. You are officially awesome now.

Just die, showing you are above the effect of this corruption. Self-Perfection over your Affliction.

It's like Paizo went out of their way to make sure you didn't want to use the drakes but, if you're crazy and took the option that made you a near liability, you'd regret it.

The first design was probably from 3.5. I remember the War Troll looking skinny with a pointy nose. Personally, I like the ones we have now better.

Spoiler:
The nightmare looks terrible to me though.

Soooo glad I wouldn't have to take the Nanami course. It would be awkward and the Kitty course is much more suited to my taste.

...no, I'm okay with how that sounds. >.>

I figured out a way to set my clock by bad decisions, actually. "Damn it, not again o'clock" for example.

The Skin-Changer Ranger is a version of the Spell-less Ranger(3rd party) that is an excellent dedicated shapeshifter. Then there's the Spheres of Power class, Shifter(or Mage Knight.. or even Armorist...).

The funny thing is the flash cards used for studying could also be used as a fortune telling/pregnancy test.

Students that aren't careful may find that they and their boy/girl/otherfriend might need to give themselves a pop quiz.

Yeah, it's brutal at dirty tricks and is one of the closest things a fighter gets to pounce.

Not to mention the Bravery replacement is just flat out better than Bravery.

Because it's 3rd party and if it's not Paizo(which, ironically, is also third party) then it must be terrible because only Paizo knows how to make some balanced and no, caster/martial disparity doesn't exist because James said so. [/sarcasm]

I agree with how I would have ended the game. However, a game where the characters can't use violence to solve all their problems sounds really interesting.

Look up Vampire Hunter D or Blade, both half-vampires that hunt and kill vampires. You don't have to hate yourself or be angsty. You are more well suited than most to fight the taint of your blood. To use it as a weapon.

Show no mercy.

"Yeah?"

"Why do you bring that Colossal Red Dragon miniature with you to every game you run?"

"I don't have any other colossal minis, and I might need it."

"We're level one!"

So starting character around level 6, with a cracked pearly white ioun stone and wayfinder (total cost 3900GP), who is a half-orc with Endurance, Diehard and Deathless Initiate can't die and stays conscious while below 0 HP (provided he was originally above 0 when he activated the ioun stone and put it in the wayfinder) and he can act normally (taking a point of damage for full-round or move and standard).
As noted in the posts above, creatures with regeneration CAN and do die quite easily. Thus, even assuming the pearly white ioun stone provides full regeneration benefits (which is disputed)... one acid orb cantrip after you've been beaten down and you're a corpse.

Except acid doesn't shut of the stone's regeneration effect.
