Never Split the Party

Andoran

I see you are using other 3.0/3.5 stuff so let me point out the saint template in the Book of Exalted Deeds. You might have luck finding another group here.

He tries to kill the cleric after he fails to steal from her, then he tries to say that the rogue he help build is againsts the rules?!?! I wouldn't want this person at my table.

He's a Liar and a Cheat in my opinion.

so a Katana is legal. at the time of the game he showed something that I can't find now, that said it wasn't due to not being 1 handed weapon and something else about length.

Swordtrained: Tengus are trained from birth in swordplay, and as a result are automatically proficient with sword-like weapons (including bastard swords, daggers, elven curve blades, falchions, greatswords, kukris, longswords, punching daggers, rapiers, scimitars, short swords, and two-bladed swords).

Characters can use a katana two-handed as a martial weapon, but must take the Exotic Weapon Proficiency (katana) feat to use it one-handed.

The tengus can use that sword one handed

Andoran

Give undead a con score. To me it makes no sense that a halfling skeletal champion would have more hp than a dwarf skeletal champion.

Andoran

My wizard charges 65%. I see on these messages boards all the time people saying the party should chip in to buy the cleric his first wand of CLW but that has never happened for me. I do it because even though there is little reason for me to cast hast on myself the party loves it when I can pull out a want to cast it on them. So yeah I charge over cost but this way I can have items that you would like for me to use on you when the time comes.

I do it because I like being the one that's in charge of the party's disposable funds. We are playing kingmaker right now and something just happened that hit our kingdom in the coffer hard and my wizard was able to just give the kingdom 50,000 GP. Everyone else had they're gold spent. I think if I hadn't done this it would have been the end of the campaign.

Working something I'll likely run by you guys later, but... first...

I can't for the life of me find the rules on large weapons anywhere beyond what you've said. I've googled "Large weapons pathfinder" "large bastard sword" etc. Can't find s*@*. So a link or a page number from whatever book it is in would be great. I checked ultimate equipment and they only have the stuff for small and medium bastard swords or w/e. So yeah.

It's in the core rule book on page 144 under Weapon Size in Inappropriately Sized Weapons:

PRD wrote:

Inappropriately Sized Weapons: A creature can't make optimum use of a weapon that isn't properly sized for it. A cumulative –2 penalty applies on attack rolls for each size category of difference between the size of its intended wielder and the size of its actual wielder. If the creature isn't proficient with the weapon, a –4 nonproficiency penalty also applies.

The measure of how much effort it takes to use a weapon (whether the weapon is designated as a light, one-handed, or two-handed weapon for a particular wielder) is altered by one step for each size category of difference between the wielder's size and the size of the creature for which the weapon was designed. For example, a Small creature would wield a Medium one-handed weapon as a two-handed weapon. If a weapon's designation would be changed to something other than light, one-handed, or two-handed by this alteration, the creature can't wield the weapon at all.

I am one of the best shots with a gun that I know. I think it's because most people are thrown off by having to close one eye

edit: I am bad at throwing thing

Andoran

I've been missing an eye since birth (39 years) and I can see having a penalty to perception to spot thing maybe -1 or -2.

Andoran

Sorry found it. Its in the bestiary

Edit:Thank MacGurcules

Any possibility there will be options to do counterspelling as an immediate action in the Mythic rules or would this be to strong to combine with Wild Arcana and Inspired Spell?

Would he be able to take Tattooed Sorcerer?

Andoran

Looking at Endure Elements Communal I would say yes to both. I am hitting the FAQ tab because I'm only about 65% sure on that. At the very lest I know you can use wands of those spells.

If it's female we can fix her up with Treantmonk

The trait system determines class skills instead of your class.

The trait system is composed four trait groups, with everyone having one of each: ethnic background, childhood events, hobbies/interests, physical. Each adds a small bonus and three class skills chosen from a pool of five.

That is genius.

I notices you got werewolves under Iconic Creatures and was wondering if you were going to use any other lycanthropes. I think it would be cool to have a war between wererats and ratfolk under the streets of London or some other big city.

How much does the statue cost. I want to play a witch, but been to scared too because of that.

Wow did I do it wrong. Just last sunday my 9lv wizard cast water breathing (9lv = 18 hours). Round one I hit me and a friend (9 hours each). Round 2 moved and hit another friend (6 hours each). Round 3 another friend (4.5 hours each).

I love making magic item. The idea that this item could be around for a lot longer then my character is what bring me to it. I hope this book will finely let me put my maker's mark on at lest one artifact, something that the ELH didn't even let me do (not very epic).

I hate it when this happens. The main reason I bought 4E was I heard Mystra was dead. The bad news Bane was still alive.
Even worse than that, Elminster (who in some supplements had technical divine rank) is still alive, he was the stick a former DM used to hit us with, to the point that we wanted to find some way to do him in. Our Rogue suggested placing and activating a Feather Token (Tree) in his underpants.

Another one that gave us problems was Lolth. My DM found a Lolth hit squad in a dragon magazine. After that we couldn't kill a drow cleric that was higher than 3rd lv without them hunting us.

But I'm throwing away nearly 60k gold over the course of 10 levels by paying for scrolls and scribing costs,

Huh?

By my calculations, the GP cost to get spells is as follows (assuming you take Loremaster from 9-18, it's a bit less if you 8-17):

5th: 4 x 125 gp + 4 x 250 gp = 1,500 gp
6th: 4 x 180 gp + 4 x 360 gp = 2,160 gp
7th: 4 x 245 gp + 4 x 490 gp = 2,940 gp
8th: 4 x 320 gp + 4 x 640 gp = 3,840 gp
9th: 4 x 405 gp + 4 x 810 gp = 4,860 gp

Or 15,300 GP total.

You can copy from other spellbooks, not just scrolls, after all. As is stated in the Arcane Magical Writings section of the book.

This may be different in PFS, but by the standard rules, using scrolls for this is vastly inefficient.

Agreed that using scrolls is inefficient. I don't recall ever seeing a standard price on "let me copy a spell from your spellbook please"; where is that coming from? In my case, it's a Kingmaker game, and given that we just were unable to find a 9th level spellcaster in all of the nearest town, I was certainly prepared to assume the worst; that I'd have to have a scroll made. Every game I've ever played, we've had to pay scroll prices to acquire spells outside of leveling up.

You can find it on page 219 of the CRB

Something about your personality or playstyle seems to alienate your gaming buddies RD. Maybe you brag too much. Maybe you nag too much. Maybe you simply intimidate them. I don't know what the actual party dynamic is, but it's not good.

How old are the members of your group? Are you friends outside of gaming? Do you all live in the same dorm or apartment building?

Brag? I take pride in most of my characters, and do like to show off a creative concept or good build. I wouldn't go so far as to call it bragging though, and I never do it AT the table as it would disrupt the game.

Nag? Only when I know a rule is being broken and that myself or another player is negatively effected as a consequence.

Intimidate them? Hama certainly did. They were all terrified she would achieve her goal of lichdom.

Party dynamic? Best I can figure, they like some roleplaying and a whole lot of rushing/action, whereas I like deeply involved interactions (such as manipulating enemies into destroying one another rather than attacking them head on).

I turned 28 a few days ago. Most everyone else is 25-27.

All of us are friends outside of gaming. Have known most of them since grade school. We don't see much of each other outside of gaming these days, however.

Two players are roommates in the same apartment, two more are married and just bought a house, and the rest of us take care of our families. I live with my twin brother. (Yes, Ravingdork is an evil twin!)

Does that help to shed some light?

happy belated birthday RD

Thanks for everyone suggestions, just a little while ago i asked very very nicely and i was allowed instead to use the Psion (i will always take a Psion over a Sorcerer, for a lot of reasons).

Psions are pretty good (but lets not get into a debate about Sorcs vs. Psions) however, sadly there are no Psion handbooks that i've found.

Still psions are pretty easy overall, they are pretty good at nuking, which is my role.

I'm currently looking to see how to buff up the psion, but i'm not TOO worried at the moment.

Then you might want to look go to here.

very nice Nate, I esp like the barbarian/bard. A character who is motivated by finding a great story to share by experiencing it.

What do you mean by not optimized in the last few?

gestalt character don't get to double up on divine casting or arcane casting, so a wizard/magus would only get the better spell progression (wizard)- though that creates interesting issues for abilities that only work for magus spells (issues which you'd need to sort out before playing); likewise an inquisitor/oracle would lose out on all his inquisitor spells. i think they're ideas with potential, but losing out on all that spellcasting makes them much less optimized than a character that gets everything from every class (like a most of the other combos would).

ps- the barbarian/bard could be a good fit for player one also if he's into playing the "typical hero" (think viking champion who leads his brethren into battle then leads them in the mead hall singing when they celebrate their victory)

You would get all your spells. The unearthed arcana even talks about all the spells the soorcerer/wizard would get
