Link (Ex)

A summoner and his eidolon share a mental link allows for communication across any distance (as long as they are on the same plane). This communication is a free action, allowing the summoner to give orders to his eidolon at any time. In addition, magic items interfere with the summoner’s connection to his eidolon. As a result, the summoner and his eidolon share magic item slots. For example, if the summoner is wearing a ring, his eidolon can wear no more than one ring. In case of a conf lict, the items worn by the summoner remain active, and those used by the eidolon become dormant. The eidolon must possess the appropriate appendages to utilize a magic item.

If you want to do this, let them have the option of a 1 being a miss or they can reroll the attack for a chance to hit. Failure is a fumble.

As this is solely an option it cannot be seen as a punishment (maybe a false option, but i think it is decent).

When you cannot apply sneak attack damage you instead add minimum SA damage.

a caster can willingly follow a martial for many reasons. Love, respect, idealism, responsibility, patriotism, etc.

I would just use a different skill. Nature to see the stealth end tiger, dungeonering to notice the monster that looks like a stalagmite, appraise for a gargoyle or statue monster.

Perception can be to negate surprise but not advance notice.

Maybe give the rogue something in return if you've a player with that class.

i would like to see a warpriest that did not need to wear armor and could walk around in robes (not being armor bonusless just not needing armor). I would like to have melee and caster options for the class.

Everyone can benefit from the song, it is not always best but it can be useful. Also most people are NPCs not Barbarians. I expect an army to mostly be filled with them.

Anyway, a few more song options would be nice.

Of all the new classes, the skald is the most interesting and feels the most like a true hybrid. That said, there are some oddities about the class that I feel need addressing.

#1 — Ragesong is something that is worth talking about. As written, the fact that you inspire rage in other characters is problematic if you partner up with a barbarian. For example, if a barbarian rages, he gains no benefit from a skald's ragesong because bonuses don't stack. How would this interact with each character's rage powers? Can you only receive one set (yours or the skald's) at once? Its very confusing and it shouldn't be because you would expect skalds to hang out around barbarians or fighters with the viking archetype; instead of fitting seamlessly in with those types of classes, the skald causes problems and potentially overwrites a rage-based character's rage powers with its own. This follows a very observable trend with the hybrid classes where the developers seemingly created the hybrid mechanic to help prevent rules bloat without noting that in most cases, the bonus type rules are doing that for them.

#2 — The fact that this class retains bardic knowledge is weird. Why does a savage have bardic knowledge?

#3 — This is another class that feels like it focuses too much on one particular concept; the ragesong. This class has no real customization to it and feels like a very far-reaching alternate class; I wouldn't hesitate to call the skald a bard alternate class, although I'm fairly certain that the bard already has a skald archetype. It is a very cool idea; one that I like, but the problem is that it doesn't allow for differences in build or playstyle at all. It is a very specific character concept, perhaps the most specific out of any of the Hybrid Classes. Compare this to the choices inherent in the shaman or the warpriest to see what I mean.

I will pretend you didn't say #2.

i would keep perception as a counter to stealth. but i would make a lot of perception checks now rely on other skills. is that really a statue or a monster - appraise. how about that stalagmite, is it a monster? - dungeoneering. Or that vine- nature....

as fore stealth, my druid is good at it, being an apex predator of the world and all. stealth is a good way to not take damage, i can see how it would have been useful in my last Skulls and Shackles game were we were nearly TPKed. I could have sneaked up on the caster with blend or it was night i might not have needed it.

It's less OP than vanish and blend. Both are lvl 1 spells. 3+ feats should totally beat a lvl 1 spell.

A challenge for a pc to overcome is why you play the game. I hear full BAB classes are good in melee too.

as a bonus I doubt someone will show up to out archer them.

Add a feat to ignore weather penalties and to count as a siege weapon (to shoot in hurricanes or othervweather) if you spend a full round action on a shot.

when i started using Hero Lab i was surprised how much encumbrance mattered. even a high str character would be impacted by it. I even had low str characters who could not function at 100% even with a bag of holding.

having a home base of operations makes everything better, or a few pack animals (riding dogs or Animal Companions). of course they can be interacted with, which is a huge plus. (OMG they know where we live, they ate Fluffy!, should we leave item x out here on the goat? (the goat answer is always no lol))

A good magic item just won't listen if you don't put the effort into it. A magic item believes in tradition and proper enunciation. There is a vast difference between fugeo and FUEGO!!

a wizard without a spell book is still an all powerful wizard. The spells in his head are still there, the potions, wands, scrolls, and magic items are still there.

a really long time after he loses his spell book - which honestly has many ways to be protected/hid/duplicated/or worked around, he might be in trouble. The trouble would only be if he is dumb, but we already covered he is a wizard so that cant happen.

losing a spell book just means you get to have a new one. since UM came out you can even buy premade ones super cheap.

edit: and yes wizards should have a spell book - it's their fluff. If you don't like it there are ways around it and still be a wizard or just be a sorcerer or another caster.

They should sell the gear to resurrect their companion. It's what they would want done right?

Anyway the pcs might be jerks and not Rez him (maybe for good reason too), but they should start looking over their shoulder since their companions are so quick to leave each other dead.

I don't want a game without gear and I am ok with some classes needing more gear than others.

If I believe I knew the situation, I probable wountnt look it up either. There is not enough time for that in many scenarios.

Have fun at the table then work it out later or let it go and be happy that you got to be a PC and not the GM.

I assume he should be panicked or have no effect on a passed save due to negative energy affinity.

Negative Energy Affinity: Though a living creature, a dhampir reacts to positive and negative energy as if it were undead—positive energy harms it, while negative energy heals it.

Chill Touch:
A touch from your hand, which glows with blue energy, disrupts the life force of living creatures. Each touch channels negative energy that deals 1d6 points of damage. The touched creature also takes 1 point of Strength damage unless it makes a successful Fortitude saving throw. You can use this melee touch attack up to one time per level.

An undead creature you touch takes no damage of either sort, but it must make a successful Will saving throw or flee as if panicked for 1d4 rounds + 1 round per caster level.

The scenario should definetly spell out what is or is not allowed.

As for the "nerf"
Druids, cavaliers, samurai, summoner.... all function well with out their AC.
Also
Barbarians, fighters, paladins, wizards, clerics, monks, rogues, ect all function well with out weapons and armor too. The only big loss being armor, so the encounters just need lower to hit bonuses or allow armor.

And it doesn't fit many people's home brew worlds.

I used to choose neither, rarely, until I got the exact same two items immediately after picking it. After that i always chose one over the other assuming a vote for a bad item won't affect the good stuff since it will get more votes against it and the judges wouldn't possibly pick it anyway.

Edit: I don't remember having to pick between two amazing items.

All I am willing to say is....

I double checked the 27 auto rejects
I hit preview, read, re-read, and read aloud my entry.
I checked the word count.
I double checked the formatting against the helpful info from the forum
Only them did I submit

I had one regret after submitting but if it bites me in the butt ill try again next year and maybe make some practice items instead of changing my mind and entering at the last minute.

Archetypes are not admissible because they don't cover the weakness of all fighters. We are using a broad brush here, Bob.

And saying a 12 Int gives them 4 skill points is ignoring the fact that it gives a Ranger 8. It's not a class benefit.

Yes, there's things FIghters can do to cover the holes. But they are things ANYONE can do, and so not part of BEING a Fighter. The Fighter does not have the class abilities he should. That's the crux of the argument. He should not be forced to spend general feats, abilities, stats, etc to cover holes that gape that large.

==+Aelryinth

A ranger built like a fighter will not be as good as a fighter built like a fighter. Just because a class has more of something doesn't mean it will try to improve that area or get the same value returned for doing do.

Wow characters shouldn't work on weaknesses...

It doesn't take an in combat action to protect your self. A fighter can also do it them selves. If you are going to ignore everything why keep posting? A low will save is not a death sentence and will not ruin your game, there is no guarante a target will fail a save and many fighters can get good saves. In fact realizing that is a weakness is the start to making an awesome character.

I would love it if fighters got better saves, it probably wouldn't break the game. While we are at it lets make all poor will saves good and frustrate casters - who already have a problem landing save spells.

Improving the fighter is a slippery slope, I think bravery could be all emotion spells and they could have 4 skills per level (maybe choose a theme and the extra 2 points must be spent in specific places) but the fighter as is can be a fun and balanced part of the party.

Using newer pathfinder options helps too, like traits and non CRB sources like the players guide and ultimate line.

Any thoughts?
