Why is anyone surprised that a book about horror shows you how easy it is for magic users to lose their identity by casting the wrong spells.

Touch AC is fine.

I want shields like in dune (fading suns did it well...havent tried the d20 version though) Strong enough to maybe not auto power attack.

My opinion, which might be worth nothing,

Errata on items should be admit it was a bad concept and remove it or fix the price, feats should be similar, add a "special: all prerequisites must be met" line if needed.

Changing what an item is seems strange,

ghosts, illusionary walls, real walls and illusionary monsters make pcs crazy. Mix and match! Its hard to have proof in a crazy magical world.

Spellcraft can be foiled, be careful.

You might be judged before being resurected and unable to come back. So it is a risk most people who can would avoid.

Um just reading the spells tells you how significantly different they are. Truely improved versions at each tier. Why waste heal when cure light wounds would work.

raise dead: you have an intact body and it was not killed by a death effect or made into undead. Also does not work on elementals or outsiders.

Resurrection: you found some of the body, or it was killed by a death effect or was an undead. Also does not work on elementals or outsiders. if able to cast quickly, then useful in combat.

True resurrection: there is no body. It can bring back elementals and outsiders. if able to quickly cast then useful in combat.

Ideas for scarier death.
% chance it doesnt work. Start at 25 and add 10 per resurection.

Chance to comeback different. Secretly Curse, madness, possessed. Uncurable until triggered.

Chance for the caster to be harmed. Losing limbs, death, neg levels, madness, cursed...

Future healing magic is less effective. Reduce caster level of healing effects by 1 per resurection. Making low level cure wands useless and some high level spells not work immedietly.

death in some areas are perminate. Other planes, occult sites.

Plan for monsters to eat bodies, perform coup de grace, use death effects

Nothing is attacking you in these examples. Although some might give an intimidate bonus, which has rules in the skill section, but it's a GM call on the bonus. Otherwise it is an RP opportunity.

Combat reflexes allows you to make more AoO a round. Each AoO trigger still only allows one attack, Some actions trigger more than one AoO, like casting a ranged touch spell next to an enemy, which allows 2 AoO, one for casting a spell and then another for making a ranged attack.

Fighters should be seen as weapon masters. The character concept of being the best at a weapon should be filled by a fighter.

To be fair most classes get a large number of bonus feats, rangers and slayers both get this and more. They can easily move in on the fighters turf. That feat is the gateway and it adds damage.

Rogues can pick up a few combat feats as talents, gain sneack attack and other tricks. They are great dex characters and can afford the feat. Their bab is the only down side.

Barbarians, are not feat heavy, have no neccisary feats and are possibly the best spelless combat character.

Paladins have amazing class abilities, smite is great. Any non archer build has enough feats to do their job from level 1. They might be frustrated as they have the bab before the feat slots.

Many spell casters get bonus combat feats and abilities (magus, war priest, hunter). they are good classes with unlimited potential. Again these just are behind on bab, but otherwise have feats available.

One of the PFS pregens had an oil of align weapon, no alignment was listed. Anyway I would just assume the user decided when the oil was used. Nice way to get around alignment restrictions if a good angle appears and attacks first and asks questions later.

Thrallherd from 3.5/dreamscared press pathfinder: make every mortal npc a puppet
Cleric of an evil god, i like ghlaunder or henspur
Mantis assassin (cause evil games dont happen often)
Mesmerist
Wizard demon binder

Hell is a specific place in pathfinder. So a LE reason to be there, probably dealing with devils and selling your soul. Could also be due to your belief system in life, you dont need to be baby eating evil tomget there.

I am assuming greater shadow conjuration since i dont know any low lvl wall spwlls off the top of my head. So a 60% chance, isnt to bad. I cannot see bow you could ot disbelieve an illusion you cast.

Shadow: A shadow spell creates something that is partially real from extradimensional energy. Such illusions can have real effects. Damage dealt by a shadow illusion is real.

Shadow Conjuration, Greater

School illusion (shadow); Level sorcerer/wizard 7

DESCRIPTION
This spell functions like shadow conjuration, except that it duplicates any sorcerer or wizard conjuration (summoning) or conjuration (creation) spell of 6th level or lower. The illusory conjurations created deal three-fifths (60%) damage to nonbelievers, and non-damaging effects are 60% likely to work against nonbelievers.

I think this book went to print too early. I expect a couple of hundred clarification/FAQ threads and errata on this.

It seems to me that this is a new toybox with no consideration for balancing the material with what's come before. It's a 'splatbook' in exactly the bad sense of the 3.0 splatbooks. Stuff in here - if incorporated into your game - so far overshadows core features that it becomes 'must have'; essentially >the< litmus test of broken.

The "rule of cool" is one thing. But how about we keep a measure of balance in the game?

I think there is some good material in here, but in multiple places the execution is IMO lousy.
There is no visible attempt to keep it even in balance with itself, let alone core rules.

You may justifiably argue that martial classes need a boost, but e.g. cutting all missiles, boulders and attack-roll spells out of the air for a mere attack of opportunity isn't ever making it to my table.
Nor are gunslinger targeted shots with whatever weapon you like.
Nor indeed are multiple readied attacks in one round, or a saving throw penalty for hitting with an attack. And no, no Vorpal-equivalent ranged weapons.

The first rule of fight-club should be you do NOT mess with the action economy. The next should be 'saving throws and melee attacks are NOT equal'(ahem, Hindering Shot).

This could have been great. Now I have to rule stuff in or out on a case-by-case basis. Seriously disappointed.

Hindering shot is 5feats, a high BAB, a readied action, and a successful attack roll that must get through any concealment, mirror images, deflect arrows...Good for them If it ever does anything.

Casters have messed with action economy since core. Summons, animal companions, dominated/controlled enemies, quickened spells, familiars with wands, contingency, day long buffs from low spell slots....

6+ skills
Combat stamina as free feat
Bravery on all emotion effects
Acrobatics as a class skill
A bonus class skill of their choice

Fighters are missing skills and seem to be considered common grunts instead of an elite and well trained weapons master.

A fighter should be able to add to any discussion (skills) and showing off (dress/behavior) and hanging out near high society (ettiquette). RP is fine but rolls will be asked for, he should know how to behave.

Paizo leaves out information so you can fill in what you need for your personal game.

Your murder hobo is picking a fight with the wrong group for bad reasons. His beef is with a few individuals or cells not the whole organization. once on their radar he will be misreble.

Is the group from "Prince of wolves" scarnzi?

I can't wait to play a stamina fighter. Sorry you don't like the system as it seams like a great one.

I was unimpressed until I made a character and saw the tricks I would have. It gives fighters more going power and options.

I can't wait until the weapons master's handbook comes out. More tricks and neat sounding abilities.

AC 26 is not high for a lvl 9 character.
30 AC won't protect you from AoE abilities, most spell effects, or combat maneuvers. Many monsters at that level don't care much about 30 AC either...

Anyway, that's not what you are asking. The answer is just don't cast Shield (shield cannot be made into a potion) That 4 AC bump is really nice. Prepare other spells instead, true strike is first level and is verbal only.

I started explaining the specifics and the post got very long. Basically it is a special prestige class that advances off plot not xp. They all have a special resource called mythic power which you can spend to add to d20 rolls or to use many of your powerful abilities.

You get a path ability (more as you advance) that either allows swift casting of spells that doesn't expend your slot, a free attack that ignore dr, free move for all in range etc. all spend mythic power.

You gain path talents they are very varied. Like being a divine source of spells, not aging, the ability to change an enemies channel energy to what ever you want, auto 20 on skills. Most take mythic power to use.

And mythic feats.
Either improvements to feats or modifications to your mythic goodies. For example power attack does extra damage, bonus mythic power, access to mythic spells, or legendary items.

You also gain hp and ability scores as your tier improves,

I have trouble believing someone will stay standing if they fall asleep in the middle of a fight.

They are in motion, poised to move and are wearing heavy objects. Even a bag of holding or a haversack will help you to the ground.

DR shouldn't be a prob. You just hit harder than some people swing swords. Effectively more damage.

If the class lets you punch ghosts, well I just assume the blood of thousands of people you have punched has made your fists more connected with death and the spiritual.

There are many ways to get around This

Wearing a backpack that you drop to the floor at the first sign of trouble. Just keep important items on your belt or smaller bag.
A masterwork backpack treats your strength as one higher.
A handy haversack or bag of holding reduce your weight greatly.
Mule back chords and the spell ant haul can help.
A dog or pack animal can carry a lot too.

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).

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.
