If anybody likes to discuss semantics and philosophy until their brain bleeds out, they should just go to law school and stop bothering normal humans, like I did.

A pirate galleon from Shackles gets sucked into a time-space continuum vortex and crash-lands on the Absalom station. A bunch of CN drunk pirates (the PCs) either go and try to find out what happened to Golarion, or just get more drunk and laser punch the hell out of a tavern.

Um, guys...do you think you might take the debate elsewhere? People read this for info on the product. If they want to wade through a debate dissecting a class or its archetypes, they wouldn't be in this forum.

Speaking of archetypes, I think I have found a Samurai I could enjoy playing in this Sovereign Blade. If you want a dragon warrior, this is it.

Don't let me ever catch you doing anything the slightest away from the thread topic anywhere else, or there'll be hell ;-)

I still want explanation for why PCs and NPCs should be same, espicially since NPC classes exist. And its not like players or characters will ever know its "just because". Also "just because" can be anything from "tapping onto well of eldritch power" to "uses steroids" if you really want justification for it.

Because the 4e with PC Human Ranger and NPC Human Ranger being two completely different animals operating under different rules was stupid.

One of the greatest achievements of d20 design is that everything - PC, NPCs, monsters - is built from the same Lego bricks.

Tactics mate, sorry, but running a level 13+ game in Pathfinder is such a massive chore that I strongly back any initiative towards making new d20 games which do not reach above 15th level or so. Actually, I am a bit dismayed that Paizo goes with level 20 for Starfinder.

Of course we do. Paizo used to have a special column for mail from prisons back during Dragon/Dungeon days. US has the world highest prison population per capita and many of these people are gamers.

So people distrupting this nice debate, can you direct me to correct thread then?

Yes, it's called "Paizo Gets Nihilism Wrong", has its place likely in the Campaign Setting subforum and since it doesn't exist, you gotta make one if you want to show just how much your M.A. (hope you got one!) in Philosophy is worth out there up against plumbers, ex-convicts, Evangelical Christians, game writers and lawyers from Europe.

But maybe it all makes no sense and we should just go and drive pencils through our eyes. Nobody will care and the world will die to some atomic terror attack, anyway.

...Okay, this is late, but I noticed "nihilistic cult"

...They better be nihilistic this time or I get mildly annoyed at nihilism being related to wanting end world o_o

Nihilism is a word with many meanings. There's the "life is meaningless" nihilism, there's the "nothing exists for real" nihilism, there's the "nothing we know is true" nihilism and there's the "morals do not exist" nihilism. If you mix them and go to the logical extremes, you pretty much want a world that is dead.

If the book had all art removed, as well as fluff text, and was repaginated in a book 78% the size it would probably be smaller with the same font size as the original.

Jake's arguments would be irrelevant, of course, since Golarion is not Earth.

Sure it isn't, but it draws enough from Earth cultures as to invite comparisons. See: every argument about how a Golarion creature that is lifted from Earth myth/folklore/cryptozoology is or is not true to the source material.

"everything you need to take your adventures into the royal courts and noble houses of the Pathfinder campaign setting"

Well, maybe. It seems to me that a discussion of armory, or more popularly heraldry (the system by which coats of arms and other armorial bearings are devised, described, and regulated) would be a natural for a book like this, but based on James Jacobs' statements that there is little interest, if any, in the subject at Paizo, I'm betting there won't be much, if anything, on it in this book. OTOH, maybe that won't disappoint any customers, except for me. :-)

Look, you need to hire a history major to do this right, else Jake the OCD heraldry fan will drown the forum in raging flame about how the coat of arms of House Jeggare is a BLATANT RIPOFF of the CoA of Drusecu family (Romania, XIII century) and also how it fails to follow the established Eastern European tradition of having griffons stick out their tongue while present on the arms. I can why Paizo thinks the return of investment on this is crappy.

For me the ninja should really be quite distinct from the rogue wherever possible, yes there is crossover but for me the ninja should be more attack based and less skill monkey.

Assassination, stealth, sabotage, martial arts rather than performing, bluffing, knowledge, linguistics, UMD

A d10 Ninja makes much more sense than a d6 Ninja. After all, the Rogue class is supposed to cover an extremely wide range of concepts, from burglars through spies to con men/women, while Ninja is pretty much a straight up sneaky assassin.

I'd like to remind people that the Ninja's skills weren't limited to stealth and assassination, but also to skills as varied as espionage, disguise, impersonation, medecine, pyrotechnics, or tactics. This makes the ninja the very definition of skill monkeys.

Historicaly, the ninja were primarily used as spies, not assassins. In fact, most the best known assassination attempts by ninja were failed attempts. Ninja were more useful to their patron as spy, scout or saboteur than as assassin.

That said, a skill-monkey only class is usually not that fun to play in the usually combat-focused PF game. Thus, we need to have ninja that are more battle-ready than the historical ninja, and try to follow the folkoric vision of the ninja, capable of becoming invisible, walk on every surface, and sometimes teleport or control elements.

For this reason, I'd probably encourage a Rogue-Monk hybrid, but without a sneak attack. Instead, the ninja could specialize in combat maneuvers (including bonuses of some kind to maneuvers against a flat-footed target ?), representing their preference for unconventionnal warfare and tactical tricks. This would also explain why they would prefers weapons like the Kusarigama and other weapon particularly adapted to combat maneuvers.
Include a Ki pool to add some supernatural powers (invisibility, underwater abilities, a bit of elemental effects) to account for their legendary feats, and I think we would be...

Design by realism is frequently a horrible decision in a game about teleporting dragons across planes of reality.

Look, if you are not at least a 6/9 caster or a full BAB class, you need some REALLY good chops to stand next to them. The problem with core Rogue and core Monk was that they did not fill this criteria. I doubt that being able to prance around the battlefield while handing out situation bonuses basing on CMB is such chops.

Same thing as with cough syrup, it gets the company across the budget line.

This is bad and sad.

1 million Poles who migrated to the UK are facing an uncertain future. Will they be deported? Will some be allowed to stay? Under what criteria? Income, education? Most migrants are unskilled blue collars. If they are forced to return, our strained budget and economy might not be able to handle it.

For all its cocky and frequently infuriating exceptionalist attitude to the EU, the UK was the single anti-Russian hawk among a bunch of doves. We could count on the Brits keeping the eastern flank on the agenda, without them? Not so much.

The only glimmer of hope is that now, free from the looming British veto on anything related to closer integration of the EU, the "Original Six" will initiate a move towards EU 2.0.

Because Rule of Cool > all, I'd say go with allowing to teleport the Monk, have him fight the battle, but at some point afterwards have some weird side effect of pushing the Limited Wish above its limits appear. Like a vengeful genie going after the party for exploiting the spell.
