Um if he liked the person so much just ressurect him. Perhaps the dead guy will hold a grudge.

Gease/quest seems fitting here.

The thrower should just have to hit the square. And automatically caught if a hand is available. I would allow a enemy to ready an action to catch it, their attack vs the throwers attack roll. Don't make it complicated, so it's not abused with bombs/alchemical items.
Oooh? You want to 'catch' that bomb? Sure, make a roll. ::EEEEEEEVIIIIL GRIIIN::

It didn't break the clw potion so it shouldn't break the bomb.

The archetype is bad, you can't take selective or improved channel until after your gain the ability. To make it better than a cleric you lose your class. It's not worth it. You also can't mix it with other archetypes that replace hexes or it just won't float.

A Grave walker hex channeler would be an awesome follower of Ghlaunder if there was a second replacement effect to make it scale right.

As one off hex choice it seems fine though. calling it an archetype seems silly..

Qadira

Since you are getting a bonus to dex maybe grab the ranger style for shield fighting and get agile weapons/shield spike.

Qadira

Heighten and magical lineage do not work together.

Also you need 3 ranks in the skills so at the earliest you can take MT is your 4th level.

I think the early access can come from spell like abilities, but I'm not a fan of that or well informed on it.

Qadira

Is he just tracking his hp/temp hp oddly? I can see a barb easily having over 25 temp hp by that level.

Qadira

Cause 6 seconds is not a good search. Roll then take 20 should be normal for activities like this. Most traps cannot be set off by looking at them, and if they could it would already have been set off.

Qadira

If I was a bandit and a powerful group was slaughtering and doing heroics I would not attack them. I would cause problems elsewhere, get the government to kick them out, ruin their reputation, harass anyone who helped them, reward thieves who take their stuff, if pushed use hit and run tactics (in cities or very large range), buy a scroll of a powerful spell to really mess them up, get a legit bureaucratic job and make their life hell.

I wouldn't be suicidal and make a last stand or put my life on the line. As failure would stop me from completing my own goals. If you didn't wipe me out when I was younger and dumber I will be a powerful foe.

Qadira

Hi all quick question.

Can a gunslinger using targeting cause a monster drop a grapple? Does it matter if it is only using one limb?

targeting (arms):
Targeting (Ex): At 7th level, as a full-round action, the gunslinger can make a single firearm attack and choose part of the body to target. She gains the following effects depending on the part of the body targeted. If a creature does not have one of the listed body locations, that part cannot be targeted. This deed costs 1 grit point to perform no matter which part of the creature she targets. Creatures that are immune to sneak attacks are immune to these effects.

Arms: On a hit, the target takes no damage from the hit but drops one carried item of the gunslinger’s choice, even if the item is wielded with two hands. Items held in a locked gauntlet are not dropped on a hit. cause a monster to drop a grapple? Does it matter if it is a single limb or a normal grapple?

Qadira

Humans have an option for two stat bonuses in the ARG

Qadira

Do a search for more discussion. I know this has come up.

I would allow the Villian/pc an auto kill unless the people reacting stealth/slight of hand their attack vs perception. If the perception is passed they can stop or see if the Villian is bluffing.

If the victim should have a chance I would make it a coudegras.

Edit: cannot be done in combat,

Qadira

mount runs away on its turn and does not follow owner's commands/ride skill. if the guy hops off, the mount full attacks or overruns him.

make the rider waste his turn sounds far better than using your to knock him off.

I haven't read the guide for 5th yet, but making spells "precious and special" sounds awful for casters. Forcing concentration on buffing spells or require multiround casting, means wizards have to sit around all battle after taking a single casting action; that sounds amazingly boring to me.

That said spells scaling with level does sound like a pretty strong change.

That is not how concentration works in 5th. You just can't have two spells that require concentration at once.

Also cantrips scale and spells in general are really strong.

Thank you. Awesome looking movie.

Qadira

Edit: misread

I don't see anything wrong. Just keep narrating until they act. Giving a little time is fine but 30 min talking about what to do ooc about something happening right then is not good.

Qadira

You complain about the weak ranger animal companion then dismiss the cavaliers awesome animal companion? You also left off the samurai.

I don't like the bard. It just seems random and a weak theme. I would rather play a support cleric,oracle, or a arcane focused rogue or ninja.

Qadira

Yes, the Roc entry says druids can take them. For PFS you still have to own the beastiary.

Other: all creatures in this book are legal for polymorph effects (including a druid's wild shape ability) within the boundaries of each spell or ability's parameters.

Qadira

I would use spell level instead of caster level. Maybe reduced the categories to just 2 or 3 tiers of damage.

Qadira

a strength rogue or ninja will always be good. Ninja is best, but take the rogue magic talents and you can duplicate that ok.

Qadira

the BBEG flees? seems like he would stay to make sure the machine is not destroyed/turned off.

some ideas.
for each round the machine is left on after he flees, he gains 1 round of immunity to everything next fight.

each round greater shadows are summoned for the final fight.

It is actually turned off, if they mess with it - it secretly turns on. They can spend time to find this out. But each round allows him more time to buff and call in allies.

He is also using control weather to make the area dark, a delay allows his allies to complete the spell. The hazardous weather is advantageous some how.

Qadira

why cant he just wet him self and fight at the same time?

Qadira

I meant to say, slightly more of a penalty to hit than power attack.

Qadira

At 20th level it is slightly less of a penalty than power track. Yes it is worth using. I don't like it because It encourage focusing on to hit way to much. Someone will love it for that though.

True strike builds
Buff based builds

Qadira

Looks good for a 4th level spell. Mainly for its short duration.

Qadira

I think they could convince someone to help them out. Maybe this is why they target religious folk.

Qadira

I don't agree with the need here. the NPC and what he knows should weigh in more than how you give your speech.

The bluff angle doesn't work as they don't know your intent, if they even bother to use sense motive.

at best they can get a hunch.

edit: a hunch says nothing about if they are lying. Just if they are trustworthy. They could be truthful this time.

Qadira

I was going to suggest bat swarm.

You could add a special rule to make it run away after two rounds or not attack of people that are silent or something.

Qadira

A pc with the heal skill and a high wis can do a lot of healing at low levels.

also there is no shelf life on magic items (unless you make it so). a cure potion or wand from a thousand years ago could be found, a well protected bank is an ideal place to store one.

Qadira

the skulls and shackles AP has something like this.

Qadira

answer why they are doing this. Explain how they are doing it. Since there is an intelligence behind this hint at other things they have done in the past and plan to do.

Qadira

The villain should behave as they want. The pcs can behave how they want.

You only need to step in if he pcs are not having fun, perhaps they find out exactly where the traps are so they don't wast time. The traps still exist but their Npc interaction or research found them all.

Or perhaps the villain has a creature controlling or moving the traps as an active defense, so they are wasted less...unless found and dealt with before moving on. A familiar like an imp is ideal here. Just having levers that open a door can make the pcs think there is a puzzle if an invisible Imp is around.

Qadira

an option for a Motorcycle as a mount.

Qadira

1 person marked this as a favorite.

All players would need one of these.
chocobo riders

Qadira

Human,dwarf, halfling, then soverign stone pecwae and orcs.

Qadira

I like this. Maybe just make it a feat with a BAB prerequisite. Wizards have 0 combat training it's time they acted like it.

Qadira

JR all 4. I did die three times (2 resurrections and one breath of life in the final battle) and one other character died once.

Carrion crown 0. Stopped playing it eventually to start skulls and shackles.

SS, 1 dead in book 1. Book 2 went well but we have taken a break.

Qadira

Having the option to one hand is great if you get grappled.

Qadira

being alone far from your friends is a dangerous thing to be. Also if word gets out about this tactic then the readied actions of the other ship could be .... interesting.

Qadira

A bow focused character not having the option would be weirder.

MT is not a spellcasting class. No spell list or granted spells. It does not even have an ability called spells.

whoops mistook what the combo was here. /foot meet mouth.

Uh...you only lose them for a day for missing your Obedience, not forever. That's clearly the intent and developers have said as much.
The complaints seem to be raw based. And you clearly lose all abilities as raw. If people want to be reasonable then it is a non issue so win/win.

Take a look at the "Deific Obedience" feat in ISG. The last paragraph is:

Quote:
If you ever fail to perform a daily obedience, you lose all access to the benefits and boons granted by this feat until you next perform the obedience.

(Emphasis mine.)

This is one of the biggest pitfalls of playing in PFS. You might get stuck with a GM who hasn't read the rules and wants to punish players who choose options he doesn't like with his own misunderstanding of the rules.

The class ability does not say that and they are different abilities. I can see people sticking to it. it would be horrible for a class to be so easily turned into dead levels. Should be an easy and obvious errata.

Qadira

just play a samurai and be awesome on your own. Being mounted is still a perk but not required.

Qadira

If you are a wizard, you don't have the spell on your spell list. You could gain it through the Samsaran racial option (from the bard spell list). Or you might find it on a staff, but the spell only allows for attack commands.

Share spells does not work like that, you should reread it.

You could craft the mount instead of using the spell through the craft construct feat. Maybe for Clockwork steedbut it would be a horse and would accept commands just like one.

If you are the GM, this is not worth the time or effort to figure out. Just re fluff an intelligent minion or add an animated chair that follows commands for the person on it. I am not sure what you want the move action for but it will not matter much if the combat is 1 enemy vs 4+ PCs

Qadira

Move action is the obvious choice. The spell animate object uses it to change targets and the skill handle animal uses it to give a command.

Qadira

snap shot feats?

snapshot

improved snap shot

greater snap shot

Qadira

Stay away from the party and teleport if they show up. Preferably with out them know she is there. There is no reason to stand your ground.

Hide your evil alignment and undead ness too

Run your evil plans in two locations far from each other.

Hire good people and lie to them about why they are doing things.

Planar binding to murder the adventurers families with an angel.

Pretend to be them to blacken their reputation. So people stop selling to them. Or they get arrested, or worse.
