This is relevant to my interests. Also add my name to the list of people who like to see this in dead tree format. :)

I read an article or pdf online somewhere that had spells and feats for combining sword and spell.

There was a spell that extended the blade of your sword for one attack (iirc) and one that caused swords to resonate and cause sonic damage.

I can't remember where I read it though. I thought it was an article on the Kobold Press website, but if it was I missed it after looking back through all the articles on the site.

Anyone have any idea where I can find this information again?

Email forwarded, thank you for the help.

We've only had a couple of minor violations. The party rogue tried to pocket a bit of treasure but was caught. The rest of party elected to fine him the value of the item in question.

He tried it again recently, and was caught yet again. This time, only two people caught him, one other party member (a vampire favored soul of Loviatar), and Iseval (who is the henchman of one of the party members).

The vampire elected to say nothing, and Iseval called him on it in a fashion that let him make up a story and dump it in with the rest of the party loot.

Last night I ordered the Spellstaff: The Magic User's Weapon PDF, the charge went through and I got my receipt email. However, the website went a bit wonky just after that, and this morning I find no record of the order in my order history. Neither is the PDF in my downloads.

I would appreciate any help you can give me in correct this.

Thank you in advance.

I started a subscription to the Pathfinder Battles miniatures yesterday. According to the information on the Pathfinder Battles Ongoing Case Subscription page, I get 30% off your price.

Since I am starting with the Rusty Dragon inn set, that would be 30% off the $399.99 price, correct?

If so, my discount was not applied properly, as it applied the discount to the full $511.68 price, from what I can tell. If it is supposed to be off the $511.68, that's fine, I just want to make sure, since other people seem to have been having trouble.

My order number was 3608385.

Thank you in advance.

When (approximately) is the set due to come out?

Edit: Nevermind, I found it. :)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

I like the look of this set so much, it has me saving up to start a subscription with it. :)

Not a serious suggestion, but here's a classic story that's a bit relevant.

Teh Internet wrote:

In this party I was playing a TWF barbarian with two mauls, Diehard, and Quick Draw. The other party members were a psion (kineticist), a druid, a ninja/monk, and a spellthief. We were all at level 16 and fighting one of the BBEG's lieutenants, a marilith with a nasty set of weapons. I had dealt quite a bit of damage to it so far.

DM: Okay, the marilith's really mad at you, so it decides to sunder your hammers. *rolls attacks, then rolls damage* Good-bye hammers.
Me: :mad:
DM: It looks at you, grins, and says, "And as a follow-up..." and lays into you with the rest of its attacks. *rolls a couple of crits and high damage all around* It then moves back 5 ft.
Me: That puts me at... :eek: -9 hp.
DM: The marilith slices off one of your arms and the top of your head. (to the party) You have a nice view of his grey matter.
Party: :yuck:
Psion: See, that's why I prefer to kill things with my brain: so I don't get killed back.
Me: Shut up. :mad:
DM: It's your turn, by the way. You have Diehard, right? So you can still act.
Me: Okay. I have no backup weapons, I die next round, I can't close without being stabbed...you said te top of my head was sliced off?
DM: :confused: Yes.
Me: I have Quick Draw, so I throw my "grey matter" at the marilith.
DM: :uh-huh: Are you serious?!
Me: I have nothing else and I'm going down anyway. Yes.
DM: Roll Fortitude to see if you survive long enough to actually throw it after tearing it out.
Me: 31 good enough? :D
DM: :looloo: Roll your attack.
Me: 1.
DM: You miss horribly. *rolls* the brain goes right past the marilith and keeps going. Anybody else in the line of fire?
(all check the mat)
Psion: Me.
DM: Roll to see if you hit him.
Me: ...20.
All: :blink:
Me: ...20.
All: :mymy:
Me: ...20.
All: :OMG!
(long silence)
Psion: ...You killed me.
Me: *nods* With my brain.
All: (Lasts about 1.5 seconds, then bursts into laughter)
Psion: I! HATE! YOU! SO! MUCH!

So, our villains foiled my evil plan... by not doing something I (and Thorn) completely expected them to do.

Spoiler:
They've been trying to find Thorn's phylactery. For the previous two sessions, they had their minions looking for information, to see if they could dig up anything. They had thus far been unsuccessful, but it was mostly through bad luck (i.e. terrible rolls).

I figured they would try again this last session, so their former master had planned a trap. He's been scrying them pretty much even since they entered his service, and only recently did they put some defenses into place. They would have found information, but it would have been planted and would have led them to a false phylactery trap.

Instead of using their minions to look for information again, though, they used them to make some money and shore up the defenses of their home base. :|

Then when they got the message from Barnabus Thrane about Sir Richard, they harrowed off after that lead. While there, they decided to use the library and some spells that they learned last level to find information on the (true) location of the phylactery.

I'm also liking the description of Elias Mires.

Things I like (so far, only about 1/3 of the way through the book):

The sidebar on Trust; Benefit of the Doubt; and Forgiveness (save me some face-palms XD )

The gods basically screwing over the dwarves, and the dwarves (understandably) effectively telling the gods to shove it. (Great source of conflict and RP ideas)

The random events and little side-quests to help build up relationships with the townsfolk.

Things I'd like to see:

Add me to the list of people who would have liked to have seen better descriptions of the new races.

I was going to suggest illustrations, also, but I got to page 56 and found the picture of Grezen, and so got a better idea of what a cheebat looks like.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

I just got this, and was reading the sample puzzles. I noticed something, and didn't see anywhere that anyone else had. (Unless my search-fu is bad.)

On the I never lie puzzle, (correct me if I'm wrong) the suggested solution question won't work.

Here's the set-up. Two doors, one leads to danger, one to safety; two guards, one always lies, one always tells the truth.

The question that's suggested is: If I asked you if the door you're guarding leads to safety, would you say yes?

The problem is (and again, correct me if I'm wrong) they'd both reply yes.

Other than this, great book.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

Just started looking through this, and it will be incredibly helpful, so thank you.

Also, found a spelling mistake in the Innocence spell description.

It says trus2rthiness rather that trustworthiness.

Still technically correct, in a way, though. :P

My group just had the meetings with Tiadora and sisters; and Dessiter and Naburus.

The first one went brilliantly for them; in that they managed to kill Tiadora and all her sisters. Tiadora was pure luck, in that a number of them got attacks of opportunity on her just before she was going to teleport out, and most of them managed big crits and dropped her to -25 or so. Thorn's going to have a pretty good idea of what happened when none of them show back up, plus none of them have figured out that he has been scrying on them.

The meeting with Nabarus, not so much.

They had their party spokesman (a Mighty Godling with a 22 CHA and hefty expenditures in social skills) do the talking about their great deeds. That part went well enough.

Spoiler:
Then came the part about who should be the new High Priest (or Priestess) of Asmodeus. The Favored Soul of Loviatar got it in her head it should be her, as she was the only clerical type in the group. And, while she is normally the most arrogant person on the planet, which could have helped her immensely in this instance, she dropped the ball. She was precisely what Naburus was not looking for, equivocating and timid. -_-

This just after I eated all the cookies (Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip) I made.

Is there a connection?

I'm not saying. >_>

The party were fighting a sorcerer, and were all too close for the party's wizard to risk casting most of his spells (most of them are attack spells, and with so many people in melee, he's risk hitting one of the other party members). However, he did have some cantrips available, specifically, Shadow Bite.

The wizard cast the Shadow Bite on the sorcerer. On a failed Fort save, it forces a Concentration check if the target is casting a spell (he wasn't), 50% chance to make them drop anything they were holding (empty handed), and makes them fall prone if standing, or stand if prone.

I knew there was next to no chance of success, with the sorcerer's Fortitude save, and the low save DC of the cantrip, he'd only fail on a one, but the wizard went ahead rather than sit around doing nothing.

I roll the save. 1. -_-

So, he basically cause the sorcerer to experience the effects of a bite, on shall we say, a sensitive area, and the guy fell prone. Which gave the rest of the party some nice bonuses to hit and let them finish him off that much quicker.

You also might look into Horrorclix: The Lab.

I just got my authorization email, and the Pathfinder RPG: Strategy Guide wasn't in the order. I know I ordered it, because it's been sitting in my pending orders since November. :)

Can someone poke it and see what's holding it up?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

Currently, I'm working on a Clockwork Chibi Pony from Impact Miniatures, latest Kickstarter, and a Reaper Bones Bat Swarm.

I'll post some pics once they're done.

My players always leave their character sheets at my place. I've never asked them to, it just makes the most sense for all involved. However, I also don't have any shenanigans happen to the characters between sessions

Using an extraordinary ability is usually not an action because most extraordinary abilities automatically happen in a reactive fashion. Those extraordinary abilities that are actions are standard actions unless otherwise noted.

A spell-like ability has no verbal, somatic, or material component, nor does it require a focus or have an XP cost. The user activates it mentally. A spell-like ability takes the same amount of time to complete as the spell that it mimics (usually 1 standard action) unless otherwise stated.

Using a supernatural ability is a standard action unless noted otherwise.

Kind of like the sarcophagus opens up to reveal it's contents (the mummy), I wish that the chest lid opened to reveal its contents - treasure (or mimic teeth if you're unlucky)

Erik did say in the blog:

“In a manner of speaking”, when his work colleagues asked him if the chest opened up. So it sounds like it may open up in some aspect.

I figured he was referring to the mimic in the set.

That's the 5th edition version of the spell, the original text is closer to what's in the link I provided upthread. The effects in the one I linked are the same as the second edition one.

Here's a link to what appears to be a version of Chromatic Orb (along with several other spells) updated to 3rd edition D&D rules.

Yes, using the feat you prepare the spell with it ahead of time, if you are a caster that prepare spells. So, for example, a Magic Missile using the Silent Metamagic feat, would be a Silent Magic Missile and would be placed in a second level slot.

Rods you use as you cast the spell, so if you had a rod of Lesser Silent Metamagic, you could cast any of your 1st through 3rd level spells as a Silent spell, but only 3 spells/day.

Would smurfs be tiny or diminutive?

Sumrfs are three apples high (which looks to be about 6" from what I can tell from the pictures of Gargamel having caught some), so diminutive.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Cards, Companion, Maps Subscriber

I smurfed a smurf, but the smurf I smurfed, wasn't the smurf I smurfed I smurfed. If the smurf I smurfed I smurfed had been the smurf I smurfed I wouldn't have smurfed so much.

New update on our villains' shenanigans.

Spoiler:
Our villains are in Eiramanthus's lair on the mission from Chargammon. In the brass dragon's lair, they encountered the Carnivorous Crystals. During the fight, the godling used his divine weapon, which does sonic damage to attack the oozes. He gets three attacks, which resulted in a hit, and two critical hits. The first hit followed by the critical downs one (doing enough damage to kill it and thus avoid the splitting), and crit result included transposition, which caused him and the now dead crystal to switch places on the battlefield.

This left him in position to reach the final crystal, which was also critted. This crit resulted in petrified, which after a failed Fortitude save, turned the crystal to stone. O_o
