Male Human Wilder(Blast WIlder Archetype)
Anyone else hear 'dwarvish navy' and wonder how the heck the drunken louts got out of port?
"I don't like it either. I'm not saying back home smelled good, but this place is worse. Too humid too. Ramiel adds as he keeps an eye on their surroundings. He wasn't much of a woodsman, but he knew he should watch just in case.
Unfortunately, since it's a batter system than Vancian.
Except, you know, the only difference is Paizo doesn't use power points and instead of spending more to make a spell stronger, you use less to make it weaker. Ripped off quite a few Psionic Powers though, shamelessly, after saying they hate Psionics....
At least they didn't completely rewrite the ability.
R.I.P, Scarred Witch Doctor. They made you overpowered and less flavorful in one go.
If the talents aren't the source, why does taking them give you bonus damage? That doesn't make sense to me.

I get that some prefer the 3.5 model of "push it out there" and it's broken 6 ways to Sunday. That doesn't seem to be Paizo's desire for their product. I'm glad.
Except they've done just that so they could sell books at GenCon, regardless of if the book in question definately needed more work. Or did you not see the Advanced Class Guide Adventure Path?
Honestly, bigrig107? The only thing I disagree about is the flavor boost you believe Summoners got. It's my opinion, yes, but I don't think limiting the Summoner and making it more Chained than the original was good for any flavor.
Everything else was well written and spot on for the major problems with a once great company,
Isn't it strange that the very act of buying the physical book lowers it's value because of the way Paizo does it's errata?
PFS Player: "Hey, guys, I just bought Ultimate Something in hardcover so I can use it during PFS!"
Paizo: "Hey, someone just bought the last copy of Ultimate Something. Let's get those nerfs out so he has to buy the latest book in order to use it at all for what he originally wanted it for unless we made that option a terrible idea now because it was popular and overshadowed the terrible-from-the-start-options!"
"Best Scenario for Balance" shown above.

I'm just trying to show that the game is "healthier" with it no longer a luck bonus.
Yes, no one ever using an option again is "healthier" indeed. Let's not forget that the flavor of the item was nerfed as well. I think "Jingasa of the Soldier with Buyer's Remorse" is the best new name I've seen for the item.
Alignment: 1d10 ⇒ 1 Lawful Good
Domain 1: 1d30 ⇒ 2 Animal
Duraga the Guardian
Domains: Animal, Artifice, Good, Law, Luck
A relatively new deity in charge of monitoring the goodly afterlifes, Duraga ascended after a particularly noble and courageous act of selflessness in the line of duty. Since then he was taken to the mantle quite well and takes helps the protectors of the lands in a pinch when they need a little extra help to get the job done.
He most commonly sends a pack of celestial guard dogs or a herd of resolute warhorses to cities in dire need of mobile and efficient guardsmen.
I think Mecha, particularly the construction and customization of them is probably a complex beast that really needs a book to itself to let the rest of the system breathe.
I'd use the rules for Eidolon and change them to constructs, then apply the rules for Construct Armor. Simple enough, and allows for customization.
Claxon, that's insane talk. You fold up the portable hole and use sovereign glue to attach it to an arrow, then fire said arrow into the open bag of holding. Simple.
Saying their aren't rules for it so it's impossible doesn't make sense either, since you could simply use the Craft(bows) skill to make this!
From the Blog Post: "You want to play a lashunta technomancer using magic to hack the defense grid, or an android assassin with a laser rifle, or a ysoki ratfolk mechanic clambering around the guts of a spaceship as you blast your way through the enemy blockade? This is the place for it. There will also be new races you've never seen before."
Apparently Wyvaran is supposed to cover that, sadly. I mentioned earlier in this thread how much I'd enjoy a draconic Dragon Race(not humanoid in shape), and got a reply that such a race was very unlikely to happen in a player companion. Might get something akin to Skinwalkers though.
Now that I think about it, a Dragon variant for Skinwalker could be very, very cool!
Well, if we do get Kineticist and Summoner archetypes, I hope they can rise to the bar set by Dragon Tamer(Summoner, Midgard: Book of Drakes) and Dragon Pact(Kineticist, Kineticists of Porphyra II).
And that, for the love of Aspu, the Summoner Archetype is not another Unchained(but really even more chained) Summoner...
