Why do you want to put Wild on metal armor? Druids lose class features in metal armor.

Anyone else hear 'dwarvish navy' and wonder how the heck the drunken louts got out of port?

Except that's exactly what they did, isn't it? Psychic magic is not the same as arcane or divine. It's a "new" system.

You aren't the one that got to decide "no psionics" though.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

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....

I'm not so sure I'm liking this trend of Paizo saying in FAQ's that abilities that work like other abilities but had their names changed because of added flavor (Archer's Expert Archer, Invulnerable Rager's Invulnerabilty) don't work like those exact, identical abilities.

It seems like they shouldn't apply flavor to archetype abilities if they're going to remove player options.

At least they didn't completely rewrite the ability.

Spoiler:
R.I.P, Scarred Witch Doctor. They made you overpowered and less flavorful in one go.

That's not true, nothing was nerfed halfway through. :p

Still pretty impressive though.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I just don't see how the level is the source of the bonus when without the talents you don't ever get the bonus. Your level is merely how high or low said bonus is.

The FAQ on ability scores has no bearing on that, despite similarities, until someone at Paizo decides to make an FAQ.

Considering the Skald in my Carrion Crown game has kept us alive despite going unconscious without having to walk over and use cure light or something, or even get someone back on their feet with their song, I'd say they can do pretty well.

It would certainly make it a lot easier for people to go along with "Just don't use it" some people think is oh so easy.

You don't know this. You have no evidence for this. This doesn't make sense. Stating it over and over does not make it true.

If the talents aren't the source, why does taking them give you bonus damage? That doesn't make sense to me.

And let them hold on to your book?! They'd use pages as toilet paper!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Ha. Okay, this made me laugh a little on the inside, especially the part where all the martial classes are balanced around the fighter, yet the paladin and barbarian are in the same book and loads better.

It's a class. It's a good class. It is not a spellcaster or skilled class. Leave it be.

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?


2 people marked this as a favorite.

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,

Gip knew there more reasons not like PFS....

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!"

Pearls of Power are your "mana potion" and are expensive.

Though it's been pretty rare in my groups to see a spell caster run out of spells early in the dungeon. Even at level 1 there's still cantrips, yes?

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.

The FAQ people have said more than once that FAQs only apply to what they are about and nothing more.

I had a Goblin with a 16 Intelligence and played him like I always play goblins... which is how they are describe in the Bestiary. Likewise, I played a 10 Intelligence Goblin that could act like any other "longshank" when he had to. Ability scores aren't very good indicators sometimes.

Alignment: 1d10 ⇒ 1 Lawful Good

Domain 1: 1d30 ⇒ 2 Animal
Domain 2: 1d30 ⇒ 19 Luck
Domain 3: 1d30 ⇒ 3 Artifice

Duraga the Guardian
Lawful Good Minor Deity of city guardsmen, knights, animal fellows.

Domains: Animal, Artifice, Good, Law, Luck
Subdomains: Agathion, Archon, Feather, Friendship Fur, Judgment, Legislation, Loyalty
Holy Symbol: Duraga's Holy Symbol is a sword with a gavel as it's handle.
Weapon: "Agastriel the Harbinger" (Longsword)

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.

Pail won't do Psionics again. They already implemented it(poorly) by making a lot of Psychic spells copy/pasted Psionic Powers. :(

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!

You poor goblin! Gip, Mightiest of Space Pirates, will get you a new hat.

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."

Oh, oh, I got something to add to this thread!

I hope there are no more examples of Giants no one will ever need! Seriously, who needs an entire race of giants that ferries people down a river?!

Why? What happened to historians? That really doesn't make sense to me.

As often as dragons shapeshift though, it wouldn't be much of a stretch to include such offspring as a more common result than the half-dragon template. I might just toy around with this idea.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

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!

Because of how it makes options non-options in the worst way sometimes.

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...

You know the only two hat slot items I've used besides the Jingasa? Hat of Disguise and Buffering Cap. So yes, the diversity of hats, in regards to my characters, has decreased. I've looked at other hats and they just aren't worth the time.

Less options = less diversity.

But only because you could get it way earlier than intended, thanks to original Monk of Many Styles.

Paizo rarely updates only when they sell all of a printing, so it can update quite rarely too. Case and Point, Ultimate Equipment came out four years ago.

Funny how PFS doesn't drive errata, but PFS is the reason Crane Wing got nerfed in the first place when it was not the problem(Monk of Many Styles was).
