#84 Wonder why I can tab away from voting and have the clock still tick down on my desktop but my tablet seems intent on making me wait impatiently.

finally saw my item. Didn't have to go champion to see it :)

It depends on the exact wording of the wish. I'd probably let him cast his next spell with no arcane failure. After that, back to the normal rule for arcane failure.

That's a good one.

Evil. They can only prepare verbal and or material only spells.
Very evil. They provide no ASF when they are equiped as armor.....
Kind. Free metamagic feat to ignore it.
Very kind. Free meta magic rod for up to their highest level spell. Perhaps rechargable some how to be used more than 3x a day. And usable as a +x staff for hitting people in melee.

I have been very forgiving of missed italics in the description or missed brackets that don't format, or just formatting in the title.

Something that is not OP or boring is likely to get an up vote. And if close i will vote for the one you can openly walk into town with.

caster items are hard mode though as they lean on OP usually or the horrible fake penalties that are really buffs.

edit! marathon! woooot!
edit: still have not seen my item :/

How many shields are there that don't either grab/swallow/bite/disarm/etc. enemy weapons or create/turn into a larger wall? I can only think of two, and one of them shows a questionable grasp of the rules.

I have seen some shields that bounce things and some that are portals. two that deal aoes in different ways. A Roman shield, and one that carries you home.

oh similar to my item last year. it is different and done well.

items have been decent today. Thanks Paizo!

/still haven't seen my item. In the past i think I've seen it a couple times by now. I know it has been seen at least.

GeneticDrift, here was my take on that idea. It didn't go anywhere, sadly (was mostly deemed to meta, though critique thread also made it clear that it wasn't visual enough): time's tide pendant

Looks like you actually commented on it at the time. :)

I think this year would be a better place for it. A sword or armor with this effect just seems more dynamic and less meta to me. Arg, I think I could have done it with a few more stress free days. Maybe a zen: one with your opponent theme, Locking blades in a cinematic fashion, or just flowing with the wind/water theme.

So taking the excellent advice I got I took a second pass at the wizard's staff and I think the presentation is a lot stronger.

** spoiler omitted **

I see some power level problems.

*You can add spells to a spell book before you can cast them. It isn't clear that you cannot cast them with the staff. Edit: I guess the cost and spell cap prevent it, but leaves it possible for the super rich.
*How do you recharge it? It looks like you either need a 0 level spell or a 9th level spell. Not sure.
*(unasked opinion)I would have it allow you to use your arcane bond ability again then deplete a number of charges equal to the level of the spell it casts with a spell lvl cap (or not). Making it an ability and not like a normal charge option would clear up some confusion.
*Also it is a total Swiss army knife.

I still like it though, defenetly a capstone item.

/I didn't have a runner up item this year but I did add then scrap initiative swapping. it didn't feel like I had the right words for it. Especially since I needed to clarify what happened if you moved up or down and if the other creature got to take their actions. I guess the ability for it to happen on or off your turn was the complicating problem.

I think it would be better to just roll the heal your friends/harm undead into one deal since you are sending out a wave of positive energy.
I heard a rumour this was tried in an early Pathfinder playtest, and found to be too powerful/effective. E.g. For a wounded 5th level party fighting undead, the party cleric can channel (possible twice!), with each channel healing all allies 10 HP and inflicting 10 HP to every foe (who fails a save). A two-channel nova then inflicts 20 HP (more than a 5th level Fireball) and also heals the entire party +20 HP. Nope, that fails my 'Overpowered Sniff Test'.
Woah, a Cleric being useful against Undead? Insanity. Let's take it a step further and remember that it's a Will Save for the Undead Damage Dealing and that Will Saves are an Undead's best saving throw.

It is flavorful that they are useful, which they already are (spells, domains, and channel), adding more seems excessive. Especially for free. Channel energy already has a ton of support feats and options, adding damage and healing could be a huge multiplier.

Ugh, forgot to add slot thingy. That's what I get for retyping the form rather than just copy pasting it. :/

well you only need a slot for a ring (ring) or staff (none) right?

Spells wont be changed that much. A warrior cleric wont have the High DCs needed to land offensive save or suck spells for example, but they could roll with summoning spells to bring in other totally metal support.

It is not like Players know what is happening every day or have time to find the best spells in random PF books if they do. Their go to spell list should be competent in most if not all situations.

The Exchange

Clerics have spells. Spells are awesome and add flavor to your character. Is your cleric a pirate captain? Command, Murderous Command, lesser restoration (to never sleep), fog cloud, hydrolic push, command undead,create undead, etc

is very different than a Cleric that is a diplomat between humanity and outside forces. Commune/ all divination, SM I-IX, banish, sanctuary, see invis (cleric version's name slips my mind right now), protection spells.

is very different from a warrior of his god who takes self buffs and protection magic.

who is different from a healer

OK i've gotten lazy with writing out spell lists.

every splat book with cleric spells is a buff.

The Exchange

a Will saving throw (DC 14) on an intelligent undead at lvl 6+ makes this mostly useless. a PC seeking this out will be wasting his time.

I would only put in a hall of super zombies if a PC had this armor. an unattended group of zombies is easily killed with out magic armor. A zombie horde does damage like a swarm so it doesn't have to know something is there.Feral Rage (Ex) is just crushing damage from the pressing of so many zombies.

The Exchange

not a real issue

The Exchange

Gillman rogue eldritch raider

Take alternate traits to be less water dependent if needed.

The RP could be Indiana jones/ Sean Connery with a dab of magic.
Acid splash, snowball, fiery shuricans.... Are great surprise round sneak attacks. You also have all the skills covered that your party is lacking. If you want melee get a wand of flame blade and go to town. .[grab the vanish trick too, if melee].

The Exchange

a full casting class is about their spells. To make them interesting you use their spell options. Domains give some fun options as well, even an animal companion.

Cleric can also shy away from casting and be inflatable fighters that deal high damage and have casting support. They just tend to need a few rounds of buffing.

Clerics can also focus on channeling, depending on positive/negative and deity, they can get crazy options. Spells being secondary, either tactical, defensive, or summons.

If this is just about play style, i cant make any sense of bards, they seem so horrible and stale. I cannot find anything exciting about them, and any concept can be better done in a different class. Obviously that's not how most people see that class.

Yeah, it looks like a 1/day snuck in there somehow. Disregard that. You gain one 1st-level spell and no 2nd-level spells.

thanks, happy to through the easy questions.

Dex based builds are more versital
Pros:
Better long range Ranged attacks
Dex skills
Reflex saves
Lighter armor so better movement (armor training on fighters helps, but I'm not limiting my comment to fighters)

Cons:
Less feats available due to needing weapon finess/dervish dance/slashing grace etc.
Tends to do less damage if not an archer
Worse at swimming and climbing but that might not matter ever

The Exchange

some locations should give these bonuses for free. Like if you camped next to a clean water source. A wall of stone could auto give protected.

The Exchange

also see the Benevolent weapon enhancement. That should work here.

The Exchange

He will have to choose the same mystery/spirit/curse or whatever (I'm not to familiar with the shaman) but that should be no problem. As mentioned at the beginning of the ACG hybrids have to take the same options as their parent class if they multiclass together.

The Exchange

Which way does the door open and is it really 5x5' ? That's a huge door that is blocked by your allies if it swings into you. Perhaps you could undo the hinges and push it in? Or simply use a cantrip or stick or rope to open the door safely from a distance.

If desperate an unseen servant should be ok to open it.

Edit: if you are not in combat why are you in inititive and in a combat grid. Seems like frustration for no reason.

The Exchange

Well if wizards knew anything about tech they would come up with a better way. Like the technomancer

They don't use lightning bolt to charge their toys.

The Exchange

It's a cantrip so you can cast it each round, I would drop .everything dealing with concentration.

An aoe cantrip, hmm that makes it hard to balance. I think 1d2 Fire damage to one 5' square reflex negates and cannot cause fires to start is about right. It's something vs swarms at least...

There is already a fire cantrip, spark but it's single target if I remember right.

The Exchange

Time worn items are half price, great for a technomge or techslinger as they have work rounds for the lack of recharging.

The Exchange

KatPe will always be together.

Maybe this archetype could work if you plan to enter a prestige class. Feat based channel progression and spells and what ever goodies you were looking for.

The Exchange

Youn should first look for similar items. There might be a better comparison but I found this quick.

hand of the mage

So a unseen servant at 2k doesn't seem out of line. If you want it to be silent commands just make it so as the gm. Maybe make it concentration based if silent.

The Exchange

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..

The Exchange

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