I think I am the only one that does read this section when I buy products. In the Open content section of page to it says “the game mechanics of this Paizo Publishing game product are Open Game Content”. This product is not a Paizo product.
Liz, you may want to email the company to have them update that. On page 2.
Now I have not seen anything (topic) on this specifically. I may have missed it, if so please point me towards it.
A gentleman at a LGS brought up he would like a class that would have healing abilities but not be a cleric or witch or druid.
And one of the base abilities would be Positive Channel Energy or Healing Hexes (progression at the appropriate levels, and renamed of course).
So we are going to the boards to survey than just the small group of us.
So for the concept of a temple follower, but no real ranks in a temple (maybe liason), what would make more sense, hex or channel?
Big Lemon hit my thoughts. Ki Scroll shouldn't have a ki wand requirement.
I feel these could burn your Ki pool quickly.
My issue with Ki Scroll is that, to use a 1st level scroll so that I do not have to spend it, is that I have to burn 6 ki points.
If I am a ninja...I'll just buy a new scroll.
I do like them, but something bothers me with them. Let me digest for a bit and find out what it is.
Take the Goblin's first name and then add Marauders...
My character was shot in the face 3 sessions latter by a double barrel hackbut. Critical. They continued on with the name.
If I am still using the d20 Iron Kingdoms rules, is there any value in this for me? New fluff or new concepts that I might be able to port over?
It does give a little more fluff in depth than the d20 system...but it has a lot of the same.They have updated the timeline to follow the miniature's game. I think the year is now 608.
Ios is opened up for war. Llael is occupied. Thronwood is occupied.
So if you have followed the NoQtr mag, or just the basic story with the miniature books, you are up to speed.
The new system is a lot of fun though. You can easily recreate your favorite character from the d20 system.
From a base class perspective:
Why the "Will" save? I see boxers more as a reflex and fort.
How does the dodge and NA stack up to the monk class bonus? +15 at 20 is a bit. One of my players found a way it maybe to much.
All he needed to do is take light armor proficiency and shield proficiency as a 1st level human, take light armor he enchanted to +5, +5 shield, +10 base, +15 from class....Well I guess its not to bad...but..
Does bob and weave stack with Dodge feat?
Gut punch should be 10 + 1/2 boxer level +Str Mod
This was an issue for me growing up, so here are my own thoughts.
Well one day there was a sermon that went against violent video games. Hmm. The short of it was violence in video games were bad and could lead to further things in real life.
At a young age of 12 this bothered me. I grew up playing board games like battle ship. And mouse trap. My thoughts at that age were if I play battleship which is violent, the whole blowing up enemy ships, how is that different from watching Beverly Hills cop?
Should I stop playing one of my favorite board strategy games? Let alone one that, according to the sermon, advocated animal abuse (mouse trap). What about the religious book that talks of armies going to war?
So as a human being I came to terms and had the logical thought process of it. It was just a game in fantasy world, and it’s not real life. It’s part of the story. It was no different than watching Miami Vice or Matlock. I was rational enough to know it was just pretend.
Look at the company, look at the rules, and check it against your religion. If they conflict or if you feel one is wrong or right over the other, that’s fine. You are human and entitled to your own opinion in it all. (The concept of free will, right?)
If you feel the game is bad or unmoral, use your best judgment and do not play it.
Maybe I'm just rambling on, or maybe I'm echoing the statments of all of the above.
Free will is in most religions. Do what feels right.
As far as the playing a character that follows another deity...it's just in the rules, AND you are not actually worshipping another deity. Your character maybe doing it on paper, but you are not in real life. No false idol there.

So this peaked my curiosity when all 4 reviews had reviewed these two products within the same period of time. I don't normally do this type of questioning on reviews.
Are you a beta test group that has played this before the actual release? It's currently on preorder..
Some of the profile users only have these reviews and no board post.
I’ll take a gander at it when it goes on sale, but I hold some restraint due to the reviews within minutes of each other.
just modify the prereqs for Hourse Master in UC. (this a C&P from the PRD).
Horse Master (Combat)
Is there a need to use minis in the game? Or can it be run without them?
No more so than D&D or Pathfinder. But they do a have rules if you so choose too, because they already have a huge miniatures game.
