I've been re-reading these in the suggested order and I can understand why one is out of place (Varian worrying about a bodyguard who drinks too much will only make you laugh if you are familiar with the early Varian/Radovan relationship.

I have just read Passage to Absalom and a major feature is just how well Dave Gross sketches minor characters: there is at least one in every take who I would like to follow in a novel of their own.

A wizard is what you need.
I'd recommend the best wizards (conjurors) but you've ruled that out so go with a buffer, and teleportation school.

Grease
Invisibility
Haste
Heroism
Every level has great spells.

Go elf and you can have some archery fun at levels 1 and 2.
Leave spell slots open and take every chance to fill your spell book.
Be over 100 and take breadth of knowledge for those skills.

The Thrushmoor and Ustalav maps definitely need to be things I can put on the table for my players.

Here are some of my favorite Bill Hicks (1961-1994) gems. Enjoy!

It's all about money, not freedom, y'all, okay? Nothing to do with f^(kin' freedom. If you think you're free, try going somewhere without f^(king money, okay?

(mimics someone complaining about second hand smoke) Good theory. But guess what, if I don't smoke there's going to be secondary bullets coming your way, 'cause I'm that tense.

I was in a cab in New York. The cab had a sign, "Please do not smoke, Christ is our unseen guest." This guy was reaching. I figure, if he could overcome being nailed to a cross, I don't think a Marlboro Light's gonna faze him that much.

I think it's interesting the two drugs that are legal, alcohol and cigarettes, two drugs that do absolutely nothing for you at all, are legal, and the drugs that might open your mind up to realize how badly you're being f^(ked every day of your life? Those drugs are against the law. He-heh, coincidence? See, I'm glad mushrooms are against the law, 'cause I took 'em one time, and you know what happened to me? I laid in a field of green grass for four hours going, "My God! I love everything." Yeah, Now, if that isn't a hazard to our country... how are we gonna justify arms dealing if we know we're all one?!

I left in love, in laughter, and in truth and wherever truth, love and laughter abide, I am there in spirit.

I love Bill Hicks but it's hard to laugh at the smoking stuff after it killed him in his prime.

Even worse that an authority-challenging, anti-big-business hero was killed by their stuff.

Gallows humour, people often use humour to get through tough situations:

You could give the PCs the chance to see it one-shot something powerful.

Or 'accidentally' leave your bestiary open at the right page when your players arrive.

If they don't know what it is yet, make it a dragon which drops its magical disguise as it prepares for combat.

Sovereign Court

Well, presumably it opens with Finger of Death.

So pick the toughest PC and say, "Okay, that's 200 points of damage. Oh, no, sorry, you get to save. Roll a fort save."

Either they save, take 3d6+20 damage and know to run because you 'let slip' the chance for 200 damage, or they have to run while carrying a corpse.
Let them know in round 1.

I think a bigger problem may be running from a creature with a fly speed of 90'

Healing is for wands anyway, once I take my first level of bard I'll be able to contribute too.

Looks like I'm in the standard gang so I'll be playing a bard/swashbuckler.

How far away do these lights seem to be from the party? 10ft? 30ft? 200ft?

I was waiting to get paid so that I could get your big bundle of PDFs.
Then I had a busy Monday, forgot the whole thing and was reminded by a teasing dead link on the pfsrd.
Any chance you'll run that offer again?

Sovereign Court

Wow! I need this luck in my real games!

That's a total of 18 damage from the Orc.

Wow, a perfect example!

That top roll is a critical threat,
attack roll to confirm critical: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25

possible extra critical hit damage: 2d8 + 8 ⇒ (1, 2) + 8 = 11

Sovereign Court

I'll add an example
axe attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25

If attack hits?
axe damage: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Sovereign Court

nothing to see here, just rolling some dice: 1d100 ⇒ 6

Okay, I am torn between Yolubilis Heron or Lion for animal companion (small character who can ride on back of companion). What do people think?

Sovereign Court

I started building a sylph sky druid but can't seem to make it non-squishy: back to the drawing board.

Sovereign Court

Yeah, sorry about that. Desperately clutching at straws!

Sovereign Court

I'm thinking maybe a Druid, full caster for the party but a bit tougher.

Or do we need that arcane caster?

I've not played any of these and have a bard (or bard/swashbuckler) that I am waiting to use, she could go core or standard.
I've also got GMing experience (plenty in real life, book one of CoT on the boards) and would enjoy running a few adventures in a run like this.

Sometimes I forget how lucky I am: the concept of 'cancer medical expenses' just isn't a thing over here.

It doesn't count...

But I've got an awesome shelf of books.

Shelf? I got a bookcase full of RPG products, mostly Paizo's. I'm currently looking into building myself a bigger and sturdier one. I'm toying with the idea of finding a way to combine my books and my gargantuan minis together as some sort of display with this guy front and center.

I feel your pain: my AP shelf collapsed under the strain recently.

Any idea when this will be PFS sanctioned?

Sovereign Court

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules Subscriber

If I run this straight through for PFS, characters at the end will be level 3, instead of level 5, for the final encounters.
How can I manage that?
Am I missing something?

I am not looking to sink much money into the ring. Id say in the neighborhood of 2-6K (which is affordable for me.)

That's quite a swing.

Spend some of that on a really memorable proposal (Rome, for example, is beautiful) and show the stone then discuss the ring.

I've got two characters who could go for this, a lvl1 fighter or a lvl5 wizard, depending on what level is chosen.

Sovereign Court

Fair enough, I thought it was worth asking as in the spirit of those rules.

I might try an elf instead then, I'm quite keen on the pursuit of knowledge vibe for my first ever arcanist.

Sovereign Court

DS, would you be okay with a Samsaran taking the breadth of experience feat?

It's reserved for the long-lived races that were in the game at the time the feat was written (elf, dwarf, gnome) but samsarans are a famously long-lived race and it would suit the thirster-after-knowledge vibe I want for my character.

Don't mind me, I'll just soldier on. Alone.

Only one forum member in Wisconsin, and only one (other than staff members) anywhere near the Paizo headquarters.

Maybe start having Paizocon in London? Or New York? Wait, no, that's a terrible idea. Forget I even mentioned it.

There is a PaizoconUK, but it's in Birmingham.

I like spoilers tagged with the DC and check.
They let my PC share knowledge in his/her own voice, rather than the GM's, and are kinda fun
