Ignore the naysayers. A melee-dedicated wizard will do fine - especially in a limited environment like PFS. There's a broad range of viable between useless and typical optimization.

Andoran ****

I'm pretty sure this falls under 'interpretation'.

If rerolls are allowed as a vehicle for advertising PFS, having a t-shirt on the table as advertising makes just as much sense to me as having a folio on the table. I suppose if I'm feeling like a stickler I'll make them wear it on their head. =P

If you aren't required to wear the folio on your torso, I'm not going to require players to wear the shirt on their torso either.

Andoran

Seriously guys, leave pummeling style alone.

Gamers gunna game.

None of my barbarians have or need pounce. The need for pounce is an optimization myth.

Andoran ****

Thankfully, despite the naysayers, we have retraining now!

You can fix almost any and all build snafus with a bit of gold and some prestige.

Balance is an impossible goal but one the game should still strive for. We should never accept the status quo as good enough.

Andoran

I highly recommend moving away from any sort of XP and using a level-by-milestone system. Not only does it mitigate those XP meta-rewards but it also discourages the "clear out the dungeon" habits born of video games and encourages the PCs to focus on the story/quest at hand.

Andoran

If you'd rather play the ranger, do the ranger. Oladon and I can figure it out.

Andoran

We're looking to play low but this mod is known to be one of most difficult in season 5. The versatility of a level 10 cleric would be nice.

Andoran

You can teamwork with Lini's cat!

But very well. I'll bring the beef.

I'll be a 7 or 8. I need to check my chronicles when I get home.

Andoran

What say you: Arching and alchemy or Skalding in melee?

Andoran

Okay, bring the cleric. Oladon can bring Lini. What do want for our fourth? I have a melee skald or an archer alchemist.

Andoran

Who/what are you bringing Tanga? Oladon is playing a pregen and is therefore flexible. I'm pretty flexible at the 7-8 range as well. Terrill's a serious melee powerhouse.

Andoran

Looks like Kalt and Oladon.

Andoran

We need one more reliable poster with a higher leveled character.

Any suggestions?

Andoran

Oh noes!

Andoran

Just finished. My final time clocked in at just over 23 hours but I'm confident I could have done it in under 20 if I hadn't spent so much time avenging my friends. I didn't finish all the collection quests but there's little point to it other than completionism as I was max level when I still had 5-6 story quests to go.

Andoran

I did almost everything in the first chapter. I did all the weapon-skill trials and all of the slave missions. I skipped collecting some of the artifacts and most of the herb collections.

I think I might have broken the game recently. I picked up a couple runes that heal me for 41% of my health whenever I perform a certain finisher. I can perform said finisher every 1.66 hits. I'm nigh invulnerable right now.

Andoran

I just moved into the second chapter and the game's still a blast.

I will say I'm a little disappointed with the progression system. I'm only in the second chapter and I've basically unlocked everything. I can still farm epic runes but I've got no new abilities to look forward to.

Andoran

I've loving this game thus far.

Andoran

I think I'll bow out. I accepted the invite precisely because I was the 5th player. I really like smaller parties. =)

Thanks anyway guys.

Andoran

It is ridiculous and absolutely broken.

Andoran

Khel and I are trying to finish within five weeks so the sooner we can start the better.

If we're looking to play high I have an 11th level sorcerer I'll be bringing.

Andoran

Do we want to play high or low? I can do either rather comfortably.

Andoran

I love me some four-person tables.

Let's do it.

Andoran

Great video. So great in fact that I subbed her channel.

Too bad it's just a matter of time before this thread gets locked.

Andoran

I just want a feat that let's strength-based characters use strength for AC.

Andoran

That's totally not my point.

This is the kind of loaded topic where I think the burden is on the OP to make it exactly clear what the issue is.

Nothing to be upset about. Just remember that pretty much everyone reading has at least one negative experience in this regard, so if you're looking for player advice vs. character advice, it would be nice to spell that out in the initial question.

Right.

Is this:

A) I have a character I want to write a fun storyline for involving his/her habits sleeping around.
B) I have a character that sleeps with everyone and I want to teach him/her a lesson.
C) Something else.

I’d imagine people are reacting in this way because the OP seems to be suggesting that the character’s actions should prompt some sort of negative response. Does the dwarf needs to roll checks versus liver failure due to his alcohol consumption? Does the wizard slowly go blind from reading his spellbook too often? Why should the bard/barbarian/whatever need to deal with STDs and vengeful/murderous lovers? Does any of this sound especially fun?

Why is the dude/girl sleeping around the only one required to ‘deal with the consequences of their actions’?

Again, I highly recommend the OP (and anyone else in the OP’s shoes) talk to your players before you start up a narrative that involves humiliating their character.

It always amused me that some DMs were much more comfortable with murderous/psychopathic PCs than PCs having anything resembling a sexuality.

If the player’s character’s pursuits offend your or are disruptive, communicate that to him. Don’t come up with some sort of absurd magical STD or bizarre assassination plot and don’t try to ‘punish’ him for his character’s quirks. That’ll come off as petty and unproductive.

Andoran

I'm playing in a homebrew campaign where everyone is a PC. It's a tough notion to wrap my head around at times.

Wait, the entire city guard is equipped with rings of message at what caster level? *checks wealth by level table for NPCs* Wow, the law enforcement budget for this city is incredible.

Andoran

Some people just want to roll dice and kill stuff. They don't want to think about character motivation or personality.

I personally think it's kind of boring to play that way but I try to not fault people for it.

Andoran ****

Thanks Wendy-Ann!

Much fun was had.

Andoran

Yeah, I've got it. I haven't used mine yet either.

Andoran

I'm pondering. I'm leaning toward a skald.

Andoran

Anything with a long O or U sound works well as an orc name.

Andoran

They don't stack but it'd be an entirely reasonable houserule.

Andoran

Can you tell me more about the setting? Is this set in Golarion?

4d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 5, 6) = 18
4d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 1, 6) = 19
4d6 ⇒ (5, 1, 5, 5) = 16
4d6 ⇒ (1, 6, 3, 3) = 13
4d6 ⇒ (3, 3, 3, 2) = 11
4d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 2, 2) = 8

4d6 ⇒ (1, 5, 1, 1) = 8
4d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 4, 5) = 18
4d6 ⇒ (2, 5, 2, 5) = 14
4d6 ⇒ (5, 5, 2, 2) = 14
4d6 ⇒ (4, 5, 3, 2) = 14
4d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 3, 1) = 12

I'd be happy to play the purely non-magical character.

Andoran

Is this set in Golarion? Is the party still level 5?

Andoran

I tend to think those classes are overpowered too (except maybe brawler) but that's not the point of this thread.

Andoran

Yes. Swashbuckler is overpowered.

The problem with these comparisons is that they’re always made against the most optimized example possible. A swashbuckler built with a moderate amount of system mastery when paired side by side against any other martial class is going to blow them out of the water. No, he’s not without his weaknesses but it’s still far too powerful.

I suggest you ban swashbuckler until your group gets a bit more experience under their belt.

That part of the ability is not meant to make good weapons better. It's meant to make bad weapons comparable.

Andoran

A standard action for a minute would be in line with the others.

Hopefully we can get an errata at some point.

Lucky Presence (minor): At 1st level, you can touch an ally and grant it a lucky presence. The target of this luck can call upon it to roll any one ability check, attack roll, saving throw, or skill check twice and take the better result. The decision to use this ability must be made before the roll is made. Once used, the effect ends.

What kind of action is it to use? How long does an ally have to use it?

Andoran

Sweet. Thanks for the pick.

I'll get a profile together tonight.

Andoran

I'll be dropping out of this one. Best of luck guys.

Andoran

Hrm.

I'll put something together tonight. I'm leaning towards a brawler.

Andoran
