You think gaming with women is bad, (my wife got me into role playing when we were dating) try wearing a kilt to the renaissance fair. I...I...*sob*...*sniff*...oh god I just can't...it's too much. When will the shame end? Do they know or even care what damage they have done? Can I get a bro hug?
I've been playing a bladebound bastard sword swingin' in ROTRL. I have split my spells between buff and damage. Shield is nice for the bbeg fights, and there are plenty of more suttle damage spells. Maybe look into words of power from UM. UC has some interesting archtypes other than the kensai you should look into as well, and arcana to use.
I would love a collected addition of the web fiction and AP short stories. Some of my favorite sword and sorcery books are short story collections. So pretty pretty please, come on everyone show your support for this. I know there are more of you out there that want this.
...Sexist... Can't we just enjoy something for what it is? Come on, it was classic, I loved it. It reminded me of all the sword and sorcery stories that got me into RPGs. Besides it was all of 9 minutes long, you were expecting some mind blowing world altering revelation from an art students project.
My question here is not with the feats but with the description in the Blood Drinker Feat itself.
actually i thought it had already been resolved that do to a black blades unusual ego score progression and predetermined class level based skills it was not able to be enhanced or enchanted in the same way other intelligent items can be. although a magus may still apply arcane pool bonus.
I have three cats, and could probably tell gamer related stories about all three. the best is Twilight (orange, and not named after the movies), he enjoys occupying open chairs,swatting dice and trying to kill my friend's dice bag that is made out of rabbit fur.
I seem to be having trouble finding spells with "curse" discriptor to add to my spell list. Also just to be clear this does not place them in my spellbook, but can be used with
David Gemmell. How the man managed to write so many books with the same story and characters and get a with it I don't know. He was like the AC/DC of fantasy novels. Oh... and the LotR stuff is crap, I've been saying that for years. There have been so many other novels and series that I've dropped do to massive amounts of suckage I can't even recall them all.
The Kensai recieves the canny defense ability, Int bonus to AC upto class level. Then one of the suggested arcana is prescient defense which grant the magus his/her Int bonus to AC against a particular enemy. Would this stack, does the magus then apply his/her Int bonus to AC twice against this one opponent?
I call it Pathfinder. If i have to explain myself I do. The laymen, muggles and commoners didn't know what "D&D" was back in the day, so now we just have to make them aware of Pathfinder. So no I don't play D&D anymore and I don't call my game night D&D night, it's Pathfinder night. I think Gary and Dave would approve.
"Worst iconic miniature sculpt ever!"
What does it look like? Can any one point me towards a picture of one (other thatn the sword lord pic in the primer) or what they think one might look like. I'm thinking something between a fencing sabre and a katana. I don't know why it's so important to me but it is driving me crazy.
I'm currently running an Inquisitor (just made 6th level Saturday), but under the "church-less" concept offered in the domain description for the class. I have this idea of him eventually joining the Pathfinders guild and "hunting" secrets and those who would keep them. I took the Dangerously Curious and Scholar of the Great Beyond, traits. For a domain I chose Air, to represent his tendency to not stay in one place for long. RP whise he is fun to play and as far as power is concerned having access to pretty much all magic through the use magic device skill makes him quite fun to play in melee or at range. And yes the mix of skills does mean you are still viable off the battle field.
I'm currently playing level 3 Inquisitor. And I have to admit I regularly see smoke pouring out of my GM's ears. Using judgement even once a day forf ast healing 2 per round and the ability to heal myself when thats not enough... yeah, he calls my little Inq overpowered all the time. I just sit there smile.
I was wondering while looking at making an inquisitor of Nethys, why not an inquisitor who uses wizard schools (and sub schools) instead of domains. Possibly a variant spell list, something close to the witch's spell list combining arcane with divine. Then maybe replace someother class functions, such as bane and greater bane, with blade thirst or disruptive and spellbreaker. Any other thoughts or possible variant ideas? I see this variant as something of a mage hunter or hunter mage, or however you see it. Judgement could be used to close the distance to a wizard or other major caster through the more protective powers and then shifting to the more attack orrientted powers once in melee range. Access to arcane spells would allow for better counter spell chances.
I love this idea i was just thinking of it today. It could be used to even fuel the magus arcana abilities instead of once a day uses. Maybe instead of a wizard/fighter build Paizo should look to a sorcerrer/monk build. This would be different from the EK. I still think Paizo needs to think of the Magus not as a xx/yy class, which it is in its current version and try to give it some of it's own flavor. Right now it is just a metamagic spell machine.
could we possibly see the armor training changed to magus arcana abilities instead and add something like evasion or the inquisitor's stalwart abilities instead. also maybe add some more skills to the list, Acrobatics, linguistics, perception, sense motive, or stealth. 4+Int mod of skills would be nice, intellegence may be the primary skill, but strength and dexterity will also be playing a major role.
D8 hit dice with 3/4 BAB and Bard spell progression with specialized class abilities to meld magic and melee sounds perfect. I think maybe light armor and the swordsage's ac bonus from wisdom (or whatever the caster abilities is) would be fine. You want more attacks, speed weapon ability or the haste spell. Limit spell list to abjuration, divination (everyone has it no one uses it), evocation, maybe necromancy (for evil flavor) and of course transmutation. To me this class should be somewhere between the Duskblade and the Swordsage. A caster who is fast, agile, and able to hit you with a melee weapon briming with arcane pain, then disipering into the dust of battle. I think Wisdom would be a good ability, someone mentioned it earlier (can't remember who, sorry) because the class should act on gut instinct. That sounds, right, we have the brainy mage, the charismatic sorcerer and bard, why not a wise magus. It's about time the arcane had some one to stand upto the monks, druids, and cleircs of the game.
I like Seeker. From Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series, Richard Rahl is a war wizard and a competant swordsman (though this is somewhat from the sword). A Seeker in Pathfinder terms (to be different from Goodkind) would be someone who seeks to find a balance between the martial and the arcane. Seeking knowledge both physical and mental.
summoner sounds a tad powerfull as stated profuselly above. And I agree the witch needs direction. It just seems to be there without really doing anything. The spell list just doesn't seem to mean anything to me even with the familiar dependent bonus spells. There just isn't any real power (at least damage) unless you take a viper familiar. The hexes start off a little, eh blah, and as pointed out with the weakest BAB and no armor training how long is a witch expected to live trying to deliver those hexes. The hexes seem to be more all or nothing, and still most at early levels only encure penalties and not much else. Also, I thought the familiar was supposed to powerfull, not just the source of power but something to actually be feared, not an eidolon mind, but at least worth lugging around for more than just a spellbook. A wizard doesn't need to feed his spellbook.
