What is the best spell for a 1st level Magus (Eldritch Scion) to have to deal with the Undead?

My character is a Suli. I have already picked Disrupt Undead.

Thank you

This is a bit of a hypothetical situation

What would happen If Wizard A, a Sylph Air Elementalist wizard cast Wind Blades on his opponent wizard B who is hovering with a fly spell some 40' above him. Then in the next round Wizard A activates his Cyclone ability, and he makes sure his flying opponent is caught in the cyclone.

So what happens next?

Thank you

If a sorcerer with the Eschew Materials feat, and the Silent Spell feat, begins casting a spell using the silent spell feat, while under the effects of an Illusion of Calm spell, will a casual observer have any cues that the sorcerer is casting a spell?

If someone wanted to spell craft the spell being cast could they?

thanks!

Is spell craft language dependent?

Are the verbal components of spells spoken in a language, or is there a "magical language?"

For example A Taldan wizard who speaks Taldan but not Qadiran and a Qadiran wizard who speaks Keleshite (Language of Qadira) but not Taldan.....take a dislike to each other and both cast magic missile spells at each other.

Now both wizards can use their spell craft skills to identify the spell the other wizard is casting.

Is there a "magical language" that spells are spoken in that allow both casters who do not share a common language to identify what each other is casting?

How about another situation:

Some explorers manage to stumble on a serpent fold vault deep underground. they open the "stasis chamber" that the serpent folk has been hibernating in.

In a fit of anger the serpent folk casts Spell Steal. Spell steal is a 5th level arcane racial spell from the Monster Codex. Presumably this was a spell that the Serpent folk didn't share with others, and required a serpent folk caster of at least 9th level to cast this spell. This would make the character most likely 13 hid. This particular serpent folk has been stuck in a stasis pod for most likely over 10,000 years.

Would Spell craft be able to identify spell steal as it is being cast?

Would Spell craft be able to identify a spell that a sorcerer has developed himself and he has not shared with everyone else?

I'm just curious. I remember "back in the day". when my 1st edition wizard had to gather sand, live spiders, peas, lard, bat guano, etc for his spell component pouch.

I know for the spell component pouch in the core rule book, it is assumed to have all of those ingredients that a wizard would need for the materiel components for his spells except for the expensive ones.

SO just out of curiosity How often do you think a wizard or witch or magus, etc would have to buy a new spell component pouch?

I am just assuming that each spell when cast uses spell components from a spell component pouch...a pinch of sand....a pea etc..... and the supply of these components are eventually exhausted.

So when will the spell caster have to replace his supply of spell components and buy a new pouch?

After say playing through a module like Crypt of the Ever Flame? After playing through Burnt offerings?

Never?

Do people assume a wizard simply replaces the spell components he uses for a negligible cost?

Thanks

I am just curious...

How expensive would it be to finance an expedition of exploration? Lets say as an example the Segang expedition?

What do you all think?

As a real life example:

:
15 years ago I was the photographer on a Smithsonian expedition to Brazil to study and record a Native American Indian Tribe for 3 months. There was the senior anthropologist, a curator at the National Museum of Natural History, and three other anthropologists, 1 American and 2 Brazilian, and myself, the photographer. I was told that the expedition cost $40,000

The new PFS season is called year of the stolen storm. I think it will involve the elemental planes.

I thought it would be a good idea to make a Suli character to play through this season.

I have a dwarven fighter which I thinking of taking the phalanx soldier archtype. I like the ability to use a polearm and a tower shield. I would also like to be able to hit an adjacent foe.

Now I have spotted the polearm master archtype but I can't take both archtypes.

I would like to have my cake and eat it too.

I am going to be running the Swallowtail festival this evening. At my table I will have 3 friends (mid 30s to 40s) playing a Monk, a Wizard, a Sorcerer, and my Fiancé, also mid 30s, who is playing a"white wizard" (half elven Life Oracle) with high charisma wisdom low dex str, and her son who is playing a gnome rogue (CRB) with high charisma, low str, and bluff, diplomacy, sense motive, perception, and disable device.....and I have thrown in a "GM PC" who is a dwarven fighter (axe and shield) to help round out the party.

Party

monk
sorcerer
wizard
oracle (life)
rogue
fighter

The last gaming session they made their characters together, and I ran them through the "relics" mini quest from the beginner box bash to get their feet wet adventuring.

Now this session I am planning for them to have to go around Sand Point to various merchants..and have to role play selling and negotiating the price with the black smith to sell weapons and armor, a curio shop to sell unholy symbol etc...I want to introduce them to Sand point so they might care a bit about the town they are defending.

I also plan to have the Swallowtail festival begin in the morning, and open with games....Ie Tug of war...3 legged races.....hopping about in sacks etc...

are there any "carnival" type things they might have in sand point ? rides ? games of chance?

What would you suggest?

Just at the end of lunch time I plan to have the goblins attack.

Now an ac 16 goblin can take a 1st level party forever to kill with bad dice rolls.

What are some fun antics the goblins could do to make the fight a little easier for the pcs.?

My Fiancé is familiar with Final Fantasy and vampire the masquerade, but this is her first time playing pathfinder

Her son, 10, plays lots of video games like fallout 4, ro blocks, mine craft, mortal combat, call of duty etc. This is his first time playing Pathfinder as well.

So I want to portray the goblins as funny, comical, kind of crazy, and vicious little creatures but I don't want to upset my fiancé's son. Am I being overly concerned?

What what would you suggest I have the goblins do?

Thank you

I am making a new character for season 8 of Pathfinder Society organized play....It has a new name now role playing guild right?

Ok since the theme of this new year appears to have something to do with the elemental planes: " Year of the stolen storm", I have decided to get out my race boons. I have one for each elemental race so I can make a Suli.

I am thinking of making a Magus with the Eldritch Scion arch type. I think that will play to the strengths of the Suli.

The Eldritch Scion gets access to the powers of a Blood Rager blood line.

I have chosen Elemental bloodline.

So here is my question: can I get my character's racial ability elemental assault going at the same time as the elemental strike? Will they stack?

How does my character activate his elemental strike blood line ability? Does spending an eldritch point to access the blood line power, and activating the blood line power elemental strike happen in the same round?

Thank you.

One thing I have noticed over time is that the Illusion school of magic can be severely hampered by a detect magic spell determining that there is Illusion magic present, and by a spell caster successfully identifying an illusion spell being cast with a spell craft roll. I think something similar can be said for Enchantment/charm spells.

I noticed on page 192 of the Ultimate Intrigue book the new Ruse category of spell descriptors.

I have also noticed the Meta Magic feat Stylized Spell on page 93.

Could either adding this descriptor and qualities that go with it, and this feat help effectively disguise an illusion or enchantment spell as some other spell? How abotu another spell in another school of magic.

For example, casting Major Image, a 3rd level illusion spell, and using the Ruse Descriptor, or the meta magic feat stylized spell, to disguise the casting and aura of illusion spell as a fire ball evocation spell or perhaps a charm person spell as another spell?

Thanks

I have two seeker characters.

My Mystic Theurge (cleric of Pharasma 3/Necromancer 3/ MT 9) character Post Eyes of the Ten, has played through Race for the Rune Carved Key, then Siege of the Diamond Citadel, and then Academy of Secrets.
The character has 43 XP and is at 15.1.

My Second seeker character Is a Magus 12/ Arcane Archer 4 and Ranger (Trapper ) 1, a 17 level character.

Post Eyes of the Ten I have played him through Wardens of the Reborn forge and Race for the Rune Carved Key.

Can I get my Mystic Theurge or my Magus up to 20th level? I suspect the answer is no.

How would you go about making such a hybrid?

This is what I have in mind

poor base attack bonus, d6 hit points, Saves Fortitude good, Reflex bad, Will save good.

Skills 4 level

Spell casting access full 9th level access to both sorcerer and oracle spell lists.

Spell per day casting progression as per sorcerer.

Spells known progression as per sorcerer. When character adds a new spell to his spells known he can pick from either the sorcerer or oracle list.

automatic acces to cure/inflict spells

Character picks a blood line and has full access to spells bloodline abilities etc.

Character picks a Mystery and has full access to spells revelations etc.

Character has to pick an oracle curse

Character has arcane pool as per arcanist

Character has arcane exploits like the Arcanist and gains them at the same rate.

Arcane exploits are picked from hybrid classes own list of exploits.

Well this is a rough draft and needs to be paired down.

What do you think? What needs to be cut added or changed?

I have a quick question for those of you who have experience with the practice of law (para legals, Barristers, Solicitors and Attorneys) out there

Presumably property, wealth, businesses, titles (as in landed gentry), positions, magic items, grimoires, etc....gets inherited from parents to children all the time when a death occurs.

What happens to the process of inheritance when a raise dead or resurrection (not animate dead) spell is cast by a cleric and the deceased parent is brought back to life?

Would there be specific language in a will to handle such a possibility?

How about when a criminal is sentenced to death? If someone is executed by the state.....and are later raised from the dead?

Lets say a team of pathfinders, while doing an errand for a Venture Captain like Drendle Dreng, are confronted by the city guard of Absalom and a fight ensues.. a couple of constables are killed. The team of pathfinders is arrested tried and hanged.
But they have "insurance" policies with their churches (Sarenrae, Caden Caylien, Shelyn, Callistra) to have a raise dead spell cast on their corpses should they die.

Have the pathfinder agents suffered the punishment for their crimes and are free to go?

I realize that these are situational questions and the answer will vary on where you are on Golarion. However what do you think? I'm curious.

I know I ask this question every few months or so.

I have the pre-gens for the alchemist oracle and cavalier, but, these were made years ago on a 15 point build.....

Pre Gens were quickly made for the Ultimate Combat and the Advanced Class Guide, and the Occult Adventures books when they were published. And now that the Advanced Players Guide has been out for five years or so and the Ultimate Magic has been out for a few years as well, there isn't any marketing pressure to make pre gens for the iconic characters in both books.

So I am wondering are there any plans to make pre gens for the Magus and the Advanced Player's Guide Iconic characters?. They seem to be perpetually stuck on the "middle burner". Thank you.

I have a wizard which I have enjoyed playing in PFS. My character's primary goal is to collect as many arcane spells as he can get his hands on. ( I know most wizards have that goal). My character saved up every copper and when he had sufficient prestige he purchased a blessed book for himself. He has also taken the discovery which allows him to copy Alchemist spells into his spell book. ( why some one decided that a wizard can't copy an alchemist's formulae book I will never understand. Both books have magical formulae in them after all) But enough of my ranting.

After discovering Blood Transcription, I was excited that there was a way to get spells from other spell casters....the method was a little unsettling, but waste not want not.....
Then I found that this spell is forbidden in PFS. I can understand why.

This isn't a problem in a home game because you can make adjustments here and there to the game as your GM allows.

Are there other methods to gain spells from sorcerers witches etc?

I have a few Illusion questions.

What happens if a spell caster first casts fire ball at a group of adventurers and then in the next round casts Major Illusion ( I believe it has thermal components) and creates an illusion of a fire ball which "detonates" in the middle of a group of adventurers?

What happens to those who fail their will save?

Someone only gets a will save if they interact with an illusion spell correct?

Is there any way for the illusionist to make it appear as if he is casting a fire ball ( getting out the sulphur and bat guano) instead of Major Image where he gets out a bit of fleece ( to pull the wool over someone's eyes) so someone with the spell craft skill isn't immediately tipped off that an illusion is coming their way?

Hello,
I am thinking of building a new character for a new campaign. I think it will be a desert campaign set in northern Garrund/Qadira.

I'm thinking of giving this a try:

Magus [Eldritch Scion(blood rager blood line: Draconic:Brass)}/Dragon Disciple (blood line: Draconic:Brass)

Levels: Magus 5/ Dragon Disciple 5

Race: Suli

Traits: Elemental Pupil: Acid
Magical Knack

Magus Arcana: Natural Spell Combat.

20 point build.

The GM lets most Paizo stuff in.

What level split.......ability allocation....feat selection.....spell selection would you sugest?

Oh with the natural attacks, the claws and bite, how can I deal with DR?

I guess I'm looking to build a character with some magic and some fighting ability.

Would this work? Would I have a "viable" character who can pull his own weight?

Thank you

This evening while playing Wardens of the Newborn Forge in a home game, my wizard cast Rope trick, and now the party is hiding up in their extra dimensional space. We have of course pulled up the rope to give us a safe and secure hiding spot. It was a fun evening.

Curious I decided to look up the text of the Rope Trick spell. I noticed the line " the rope cannot be removed or hidden".

I looked in the 3.5 description of the spell and it read "creatures in the space can pull the rope up into the space, making the rope "disappear.".

So for our game, I guess this means we can't pull up our rope. Any creature watching by will see the rope hanging from nothing and investigate. This makes the spell seem to be functionally useless, or at least, no longer useful as a safe hiding place.

I wonder 1 ) why did the designers decide to change the spell so you can't pull up the rope into the extra dimensional space.

and 2) what can the spell now be used for.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks

I have just down loaded the new Occult Adventures Iconics which i will have to read later. at first glance they look very interesting.

I still have the Advanced Players Guide pre generated characters, the Alchemist, the Oracle and the Cavalier.

I was wondering will we see an updated version of these pre gens plus a pregen for the inquisitor, witch and summoner?

I am guessing with the pace of things, and prioritization, we will most likely not see these characters as pre gens.

What are your thoughts?

I have a 8th level sylph wizard with the air speciality. I am thoroughly enjoying the character. My theme for the character not surprisingly is wind, electrical damage, storms etc.....So I am having lots of fun with Aggressive Thunder Cloud, Lightning Bolt, Ball Lightning etc.....

Thursday night I went to a Pathfinder Society game at, Game Theory in Raleigh NC, I had signed up to play Darkest Vengeance. I arrived little early. I noticed there was another player with a wizard! We spent some time comparing spell lists and picking spells we wanted to share before the game. We also compared what we were planning to have our wizards prepare for the game.

We both decided to prepare a couple of Haste spells, so we would have 4 haste spells available for the adventure.

In our party we also had a player, a good friend, with a hyped up "gnoll" barbarian with a Falchion, a real heavy hitter. The character is actually some sort of tiefling that looks like a gnoll. My friend just likes gnolls and Lamasthu.

Anyways back to the spell selection....While looking at what I could do with a lightning bolt, I realized, with reflex saves, Evasion...etc....my 8d6 lighting bolt, was going to cause much less damage then the barbarian.....Haste+ Barbarian was my most effective combination for dealing damage.

Anyways, to me it seems the martial characters, Barbarian, fighter etc do far more damage a round consistently then the evocation magic my wizard wields. So why do martial's feel they don't have "nice things"?.

Thoughts?

I have a character who has played through the quest for perfection series. He has a boon that allows him to have an

:
Axe Beak as a mount.
. I have a watermarked printed page 29 from the Bestiary 3 so the GM can see the monster entry if he wants to.

If my character is using something outside the Core Rule book, I assume I have to provide the source materiel for the GM to peruse if he would like to correct?

I also have a character who has played through the Technic Siege and the SIlver Mount Collection. If my character purchases and uses the

timeworn laser pistol
would I need to provide a watermarked copy of page 25 of the Technology guide to the GM if he asks?

Let me turn that around. as a GM, if I am unfamiliar with the contents of the Technology Guide, and someone shows up with a character with the

laser pistol
can I ask him to produce some materiel so I can see how it works? What if the player doesn't have anything?

Hello I have a quick question

I have a PFS Elemental: Air specialist wizard. In the APG I have found the list of Elemental Air spells.

I also have Blood of the Elements. There is a list of Air Elemental spells on the back cover of the supplement.

If I find an Air elemental spell, that is on the Wizard's spell list on the back page of the Blood of Elements, but isn't on the elemental spell list in the APG, can my wizard, after learning and scribing one of these spells, can my wizard prepare one of these new spells in his Air Elemental school specialty slot? For that Matter, How about the Aggressive Thunder Cloud spell from the ACG?

I have been looking through a PFS scenario I am planning to run. I have noticed that one of the "monsters: in the scenario is a robot.

This robot has hardness 5, electricity resistance 5 and its vulnerable to electricity. Its reflex save is +5.

What happens if this creature is subject to a lightning bolt spell, save DC 18, 5d6 damage?

I realize first the robot would make a reflex save =1d20+5 vs DC 18 to halve the damage

Assuming it fails its reflex save and is subject to 5d6 points of electrical damage, lets say 15

points, How does the hardness, the resistance, and the vulnerability come in? Which to you apply

first second and last? Oh and does hardness and resistance stack?

Thank you
