One of my players was asking some questions about this prestige class and pointed something out.

Inner Sea Gods wrote:
Aligned Class (Ex): Evangelists come from many different backgrounds, and they show an unusual range of diversity. At 2nd level, the evangelist must choose a class she belonged to before adding the prestige class to be her aligned class. She gains all the class features for this class, essentially adding every evangelist level beyond 1st to her aligned class to determine what class features she gains. She still retains the Hit Dice, base attack bonus, saving throw bonuses, and skill ranks of the prestige class, but gains all other class features of her aligned class as well as those of the evangelist prestige class.

No where does it state you add your Evangelist level to the class features you gain for determining their power. The example he pointed out for him personally was:

From Rakshasa Bloodline:

Bloodline Arcana: Add half your sorcerer level to the Spellcraft DC for others to identify spells you cast. If their checks fail by 5 or more, they mistakenly believe you are casting an entirely different spell (selected by you when you begin casting).

Then he asked "This is a reference to sorcerer level, but it effects the relative strength of the feature, not whether or not it will be gained. Since Evangelist only mentions summing levels for gaining new features, this then means that for a Sorc5/Evan10, half of one's sorcerer level would be 2, and not 7?"

I was just wondering if this has been brought up before.

Savage barbarian and Invulnerable rager, because naked bad-asses are awesome.


My players would love to see a Gug in there, favorites at the table.


Aasimar, Peri-Blooded, +2 int & charisma.

Monk with 20 charisma and int.


The fact that the chassis for a sorcerer + barbarian is a bloodrager, and the chassis for a bard + barbarian is a skald irks me to no end. Why the base attack/casting of these two "hybrids" aren't reversed is beyond me.

Slayer is the magic-less ranger some people wanted.


Wake of the Watcher was awfully popular.

Rules for that exact concept are presented inside.


I was with Marshmallow on the applying of mithral (I considered it still medium armour), until Guass spelled it out like that. I must side with the "celestial plate doesn't care about base materials" camp now.


I've seen 5 PC's slain to this abomination of an optional rule. I do not use it in my campaigns. Worst one I saw was a level 16 arcane trickster standing 80 feet away minding his own business when the fighter charged a neutral CR 6 Beetle just to get into a fight. The 2nd one charged off a cliff at the trickster for some reason and laid a 41 damage crit on it, sucking out a natural 1 (the trickster was small sized and the 3.5 rule subtracted -10 for each size below medium). Way to many things can accidentally do 50 damage at higher level. I felt sick the first two PC's I killed with it in my homegame and took it out for the next one.

A class that can spontaneously cast "Allfood"? Sold.

It was part of the arcane bloodline. I haven't re-read it since first print, because the Bloodrager isn't my cup of tea.


Reading your feats, if you can jimmy them around in order, and bump your int to 13 you can get Spell Specialization instead of Spell Penetration. Better for just pure hideous laughter casting. I've made a similar character with serpentine/fey specializing in Hold Person and it was good fun.


Iron Will, Toughness, Great Fortitude all spring to mind. Don't ignore your defenses. Worst thing that can happen to a weak will base class with huge damage is to get dominated and rip up your party. If you're planning your 9 and 11 feats iron Will and Improved Iron Will are pretty good, or Iron will and Great Fortitude.

Is it odd I want the book even more now?


Bha too many powerhouses here, if you really want to cripple yourself amusingly, play a Sensei archetype monk. Fiddle around with Quijjong and pick up some amusing buffs to hand out to your party.


Hey I got a good idea Hit FAQ on my thread about Dragon Totem to help clarify what I believe is an editorial error.


Human gunslinger archetype buccaneer is very good at this kind of thing.


Actually, pretty much all the animals have low charisma. Theres a flying lizard with 11, squirrel with 8, then all the rest around the 3-5 mark.


There is an item in the reign of winter AP called the cassock of the black monk that adds +4 to touch AC only. However it is worth 36,000 gold because of its other properties. You can probably reverse engineer it to get an idea of what it would be without the oracle enhancing abilities.


A real martial/singing skald, not one that's a variant bard. Too many classes that cast spells as a bandaid.

Are Gripplis purposely pushing the boundaries of Tiny size?
Ummm... Grippli are Small, not Tiny. SO I guess they are pushing that boundry.

Sorry my computer went crazy and the rest of my post had to be snipped off. I was wondering About the normal tiny size ("1 to 2 feet") and the fact the average male Grippli is 1 ft 11 inches, while females clock in at 1 ft 9 inches. Is this kind of thing frowned upon in the design department, much like a medium race over 8 feet tall?

Your "space/reach" for serpentfolk is for a much smaller creature.


He's not using dimension door because he doesn't have dimensional agility. So you would allow him to use Studied carefully for teleports within 30 feet? What about the second part? Teleporting back where you came from, that you haven't studied at all, just walked by?


One of my players made a blind monk/kensai. To make this actually ok to play he has taken (improved/greater)blindfight and a 3.5 spell called listening lorecall that gives him blindsight 30 feet.

This has been fine, but something came up the other day.

He has been using spell combat and Teleport offensively. However, some of the phrasing of teleport seems wonky for this. Here are my concerns.

SRD wrote:
Familiarity: “Very familiar” is a place where you have been very often and where you feel at home.

No problem there. This is the kind of place where if you get up in the middle of the night you know to not stub your toe on the end-table.

SRD wrote:
“Studied carefully” is a place you know well, either because you can currently physically see it or you've been there often.

Here it starts. He can't physically see anything. And places he can study by touch, smell, and hearing are likely to fall into Very Familiar in a hurry.

SRD wrote:
“Seen casually” is a place that you have seen more than once but with which you are not very familiar.

Again, can't see.

SRD wrote:
“Viewed once” is a place that you have seen once, possibly using magic such as scrying.

See above (that's a bad pun).

Now, he does have blindsight.

SRD wrote:

Blindsight

Some creatures possess blindsight, the extraordinary ability to use a non-visual sense (or a combination senses) to operate effectively without vision. Such senses may include sensitivity to vibrations, acute scent, keen hearing, or echolocation. This makes invisibility and concealment (even magical darkness) irrelevant to the creature (though it still can't see ethereal creatures). This ability operates out to a range specified in the creature description.

Blindsight never allows a creature to distinguish color or visual contrast. A creature cannot read with blindsight.
Blindsight does not subject a creature to gaze attacks (even though darkvision does).
Blinding attacks do not penalize creatures that use blindsight.
Deafening attacks thwart blindsight if it relies on hearing.
Blindsight works underwater but not in a vacuum.
Blindsight negates displacement and blur effects.

But my concern is that this doesn't confer the same effects as true vision. If you wanted to teleport to one of two identical rooms, but one was red and one was blue, there'd be no way for him to tell the difference. let alone if they had murals or inscriptions or what have you.

But mainly the concern is, do you think a blind mage with blindsight can teleport 30 feet ahead to an area he can only sense with blindsight? What about an area 100 feet behind him he just walked by 10 seconds ago without scouring the area?

Why can't you be both!


I like magic circle against evil.


The party can take the feat necromantic affinity. Doesn't work on channel, but inflict spells still work (why the wonky wording? I'm not sure you can heal someone with this feat with a harm spell.)


If you're doing hellknights, Oath against Chaos is perfect. It's in inner sea combat.


One of the AP's has a pregnant lady in it, and they assign her a medium load (carrying capacity) status. Whatever you make her, make sure she has one of these tucked away somewhere, so creepy.

This product is off the chain.


If your're willing, you can save some feats and get in earlier by just taking to the last instead of the deathless chain. I like to make barbarians with a 1st level unbreakable dip to get this at first level, having 37 HP at level 1 can be a riot.


If I came into your house with scissors and cut off Sohei at level 5, would there be anything there to suggest if you took 3 levels of weapon master you could flurry with a greatsword? No? Then taking 1 level of Sohei then 3 levels of weapon master won't do it.


Back in 3.5 there was a shapechanging class in the complete warrior (the Warshaper) that had a "surprise reach" class ability. I always read that as you knew when you were threatened and could see if a monsters usual attacks had reach or not.

It is only automatic if you are grappled, and with an AC of 16 at level 5 it would likely die before doing too much damage.

Sorry my internet burned out right there. "1d6 automatic damage" breath weapon is brutal in a 20 foot radius that blinds as well. It doesn't help that originally printed the monsters reach chain attack there did 2d4 +12 (somebody made a typo). Yeah at level 5 its not that bad because of its defenses, but it was put into a module (crown of the kobold king) to face 2nd level adventurers. At that level I got to watch it drop 2 PC's a round.

Slayer is probably better, because you can nab Imp Two Weapon Feint and get some extra sneak damage in there.

Unlawful yes. Evil? Maybe he's going to sponsor some orphans with it.

The eyeless krakens washed ashore on the Isle of Kortos in the year 4700 AR, some 94 years after Aroden's death.

They are ABSOLUTELY foreshadowing something I've got planned for the future, but that event doesn't really have anything to do with Aroden's death at all.

Has this been published yet? This is my favorite teaser in Inner Sea Guide and I've been waiting to see what its about since then.


blinkback belt


If you add it to your list it is now a paladin spell, and can be cast without ACF.


A rogue to balance it out.
