Take a level in Inquisitor or profession spy. Sometimes a god needs to employ an assassin. You have to justify the character concept.

If there are criminals giving magic a bad name, I see why they got the calling.:)

No GMs will let me create a third artifact.

I've run out of diamond for wish spells. There is no more on the planet. I'm going to have to use this magic, space traveling, chariot we found to explore the other planets.


People will put up with a lot when they are trying to fill a table. There was the one guy who wasted a gaming session arguing for a crit fumble when it couldn't exist. He let us play in his home so I just said I wouldn't return till he promised to let it go. From then on we went without any fumble rules. A 1 was just a miss or a non confirmed.

In later sessions he started talking about rescuing some kid from what he thought was abusive parents, but all of us kept telling him he would be arrested if he tried. Knowing that no one will help him do a wrong thing or even testify on his behalf, tends to keep such people from acting on this stuff.

Back in my day, summoned creatures lasted 10 minutes per level, and you could summon humanoids.

They could help carry out that huge statue.

If they died, you could not summon that specific monster again, and we liked it!

That guy needs to get back on his meds.

It's like trying to swim in popcorn. You have to crawl through it.
The NPCs cannot tell when I'm making an assumption.

They can probably publish rules for the existing card game.

Going from plane to plane is an either or situation with no overlap, at least in Pathfinder. No percentage miss chance, for anything,except for cover, maybe. It confuses me still.

Edit, it turns out cover just adds to ac and to some saves.

Back in my day, you could still get issues of the The Strategic Review.

I've toyed with the idea of having every player bring 2 characters, then having them draw from the deck of many things. I would replace the death with an ordinary skeleton with a scythe. Might be a good way to handle lame character concepts. "Your pastry chef just got a body guard!"

Granted! Here are your yardsticks. Start measuring.

I wish for a Pathfinder MMO game where you rebuild a medeval town, and hunt monsters with your friends.

When you guys start arguing against common sense, it time to end the topic. Not only doesn't it have to say everything, if it clearly says something really stupid, ignore that part. If it doesn't give a duration for a spell, its probably the duration of the potion, the duration of the spell used to make the potion if cast by the new caster, or a duration of a similar spell of that level.

Combining comedy and horror takes some thought. Crawly undead clowns are very different than kid's party clowns.

Back in my day you could create peanut butter cubes and everyone would just go with it.

21.Almost Everybody Loves a Clown
The ringmaster of a circus hires the characters to find their missing clowns. Turns out they stole a magic spellbook and turned each other into funny animals. Now they cannot change each other back.

Look through these.

Just PDFs. &bih=638&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjN5qn3v8X QAhUJJCYKHTDiCtIQ_AUIBigB &bih=638&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjN5qn3v8X QAhUJJCYKHTDiCtIQ_AUIBigB#tbm=isch&q=Spacecraft+RPG+maps+pdf

One time, everyone was naming characters after pop stars. I made a priest names George Michaels because I had just seen his video'"Faith". I didn't hear about his supposed gayness till later. We never had to play our characters like we knew who we were named after. We all had different instruments. There were no modules where being a band mattered.

That explains how you know who won the election.

In my day, character sheets were clay tablets with triangular markings, and we had to stop the game until the frog rain was over.

Traditional players sneered at chariots as "too sci-fi".

We can use past lives memories?

Back in Justin's day, an actual dragon posed for my clay figure we used in our games.:)

...Animating the dead was considered "Grey Necromancy," and did NOT come with the controversial [Evil] descriptor!

Back in my day, you could animate a dead adventurer, have it carry out treasure enough to have it'self raised, and you didn't have to slay it to raise it.

Now a days a zombie is too stupid to pick up stuff and carry it. I blame the movies! Only the _____ of the dead movies.

As a GM I allow banking resurrections. "I wish the next party member who dies be brought back at full health at least 5 feet out of harms way.","I wish the second next party member...

Can alchemists do this? Basicly, they would mix the potion in with the chemicals, drink it, then cast the spell. Casting seems to always be personal, but many spells are not personal.

With the proper meta magic, they can give the charged juice to someone else to drink.

In america, this is the day to give thanks, but to be honest, not everything is perfect. Give thanks for one thing, and no thanks for one other.

Thanks for the Macy's Parade. It's terrific.

No Thanks for Donald Trump! Take him back or something.

you have heard of a tree's sap can bring someone back to life. It is called the TREE OF LIFE. you travel deep in the forest of death. the tree of life is in the middle of it. it block by high level monsters and when you get there you find out you can only get 1 vial per person

I'm fixing the numbering. GM's are going to need to roll on this when PCs lose too many levels to continue an adventure path.

19: Water War An evil druid has rallied a local group of treants into raiding caravans that carry supplies to a forest-bordering small town that harvests timber that has hit on hard times as their water supply comes from an underground spring that turns into the river that carries the logs down stream and has been cut off by an earthquake caused by the druid. A wizard has been into the caverns beneath the town, attempting to use magic to redirect the sprig that fuels the river, but has not been seen in a week. He is presumed dead or captured by the druid. The party members have to locate the wizard and kill the druid. A noble has promised a great reward, possibly even a marriage into his line.

I'm fixing the numbering on this topic.

Look at This!

Now bleach your brain.

Several players decided they wanted to play half orc or half ogre female barbarians. It's a playable build. There's never been a problem.

Here's a new question: What is your preferred level of danger in a game? How common is PC death? Do you fudge it, or look for ways around it, or do you run a harsh, cutthroat campaign? Do you hate it when your own characters are at risk of dying?

Character death should be because they were stupid or nobel. The more lethal the situation, the more ways to raise or resurrect characters.

Fuller Brush Callin. Would you like to buy some Skin So Soft?


Who's there?


Haster who?

Ported over, where?
I have a friend who used to DM a game in Waterdeep. He might buy the guide to the sword coast and run it Pathfinder. We had a group of adventurers who were on the time travel adventure when the game fell apart. It would be fun to have them return decades after they left.

The cool thing about it would be that those players who have fought mindflayers in the past, or know them like the back of their hands would be in for a surprise.

Plus, star spawn have to grow from something.

Contaminated people. Humans, elves, dwarves, halflings, gnomes, ect.

Developing Starspawn make a good template that can effect any sentient living thing.

It's ironic that someone acted like they were gushing blood over someone using too much table space, in a topic about someone acting like they were gushing blood about not getting a big offer on their card collection.:)

99) Share shocking grasp with your rat and pretend you're Ash Ketchum.:)

Maybe you can find a figure of a greek holding a scroll, or one of the teachers from Hogwarts. The defense against the dark arts one in the 2nd movie dressed like Dr Who.:)

More on 1: Illusions are replaced with real and real stuff is replaced by illusions. An illusionary wall is replaced with a wall with a secret door in it.

4: Goofy Gas Use tic tacs to represent illusionary weasels, or a clear dice box to represent the big, pink, elephant. While these things cannot touch them, they can provide cover. Anyone who fails their 15DC will save must interact with the delusions.

Sometimes, the players may seem to have meta knowledge of an adventure. The GM can openly display the cards in the game, or hide them, dependending on play style. For The Cleaves, it's another deck to draw from each new room. Any previous rules that conflict are discarded.

For a normal game, one or more players admit they were exposed to spoilers, or not. The GM can roll for a rule change card an play the whole module that way. To make the players feel more included, each may draw a card and hand it to the GM without looking at it. The GM applies all the cards.

1: Flip the script The good NPCs are really bad, and the monsters have reformed. Items become cursed items, while cursed items become non cursed.

2: Positive energy leak Everybody and everything heals one point a round. Undead without special resistance will take the damage.

3: Negative energy leak Everybody and everything takes one point a round. Undead will heal the damage.

Like this.

The cartoon was all about destroying others souls and minds.
Best toss it in the same hole with the ouija board and bury it.
Salt and burn it first.

I'm just kidding. If you really believe in the heart of the cards that way, get help.

Knock Knock!
Who's there
Zalgo Who?

I hope the restrictions on higher level spells are not being carried forward. If they are, then all gods are greater. No PCs are gonna worship a deity that cannot grant 9th level spells.

It should be "5th edition and other Hasbro DnD products".

True, but being an "Independent Mercenary" will pay the bills.

I wonder if there'd be a return of 'trade unions/guilds' based on adventuring skills.

"Yep, we're Adventurers Bonded 27. We represent the interests of adventurers for this here county, inasmuch as some unscrupulous rulers have tried to take advantage of the hard work folks do without providing proper pay."

EDIT: Come to think of it, 'salvage' would probably be a part of any pay compensation package...

The clerics of Abadar would add a paragraph to the contract that any object "bad for business" would be traded in for a true res. performed when necessary. Nukes, magical or otherwise, are bad for business.

The Vatican probably has a lot of these.

As far as I can see, that rule does not apply to lesser restoration.

Lesser restoration dispels any magical effects reducing one of the subject's ability scores or cures 1d4 points of temporary ability damage to one of the subject's ability scores. It also eliminates any fatigue suffered by the character, and improves an exhausted condition to fatigued. It does not restore permanent ability drain.

As compared to resist energy: This abjuration grants a creature limited protection from damage of whichever one of five energy types you select: acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic.

LR does not include any select language, whereas RE does.

I read the core spell and this is correct.

You need a penguin inquisitor named Skipper.:)

Guess he dumped con at 1st level.:)

Classes: 1d100 ⇒ 81d100 ⇒ 51d100 ⇒ 261d100 ⇒ 49

85. Frost elves just want to introduce Christmas which they learned of using contact other plane. Their Oracle suffered the side effects and believes they are Santa, which they kinda are.

A time gate spell that reaches 6 months into the future. Cooling during the summer, warming during the winter. Put in a permanent arch it will allow future mayor to warn of natural disasters.

I joke that if I ever have to play Ravenloft again I'll show up with a stack of characters. Each one has a barrel of burning oil that will lite from a lamp if they fall over dead.:p
