Kasathas get 1 primary and 3 off-hand attacks. While these attacks don't have to be made with the literal hands, the number of off-hand attacks is predicated upon the number of natural arms/hands the creature has. (For those rediculous examples that are based upon "humanoids with no arms": a) that wouldn't be a reasonable expectation for a playable character, b) humanoids, as a creature type, do have arms—two of them to be exact—so the human fighter who lost both arms in a tragic armor smithing accident can still make 1 primary and 1 off-hand attack).

And for the record, go ahead and let your players using Kasatha's MWF with two greatswords—its inferior to a longsword, x3 shortsword (or any 1H/x3 lt. combination).

So basically you're saying that the officer should be locked up even if the evidence indicates that he shouldn't be...because the mob is always right?

You have to have faith in the system because if no one does, then the system no longer works. It's certainly not perfect, and there are systemic issues that need to be addressed, but it's important to remember that there are two sides to every story and both have a right to be heard.

Or...you know...because of how big of an event this has turned out to be (not saying it should be swept under a rug, just all of the other stuff surrounding it: mishandling, protests, riots, etc.), they want to be meticulous and ensure that they do everything correctly and get as close to the truth as possible. That's not something that is decided in 10 minutes.

This is why people should cast raise thread(c) and they would be protected from any snark.

And yeah, they really do need a "proficient with any weapons listed in their stat block" like they have for armor. Not sure why it was excluded.
But then imagine all the people who buy exotic weapons for their humanoid PCs and claim, "Hey, humanoids are proficient with any weapons listed in their stat blocks, and this exotic weapon is in my stat block, therefore I'm proficient with it now!"

Players characters don't have stat blocks, they have character sheets. ;-)

Now for something completely different...

Why does it take NualiA so long I get past the coin door? Lyrie has detect secret doors in her spellbook which can show you the opening mechanism in round three. Shouldn't she be able to just memoriZe that a bunch of times and hen find the secret door with ease the next day?

How do other peoples PCs end up finding the coin slots?

Thanks in advance.

In short, Nualia and her crew didn't realize that it was a secret door, thus they weren't looking for any way to manipulate it or gain access. Since they weren't aware of it, Lyrie had no need to memorize the spell.

Don't forget that they were attacked by the shadows in the nearby crypt, and so, to them, that whole area had nothing but "bad stuff" that had no positive effect towards their mission at hand.

FWIW, mentioned the humanoid/weapon thingy to Mark Seifter and he felt that humanoids should probably get the "they are proficient with the weapons listed" note. Certainly nothing official, but it's a step in the right direction.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

In all fairness, 3.5 humanoids didn't have that line in it either—these weird PF corner cases weren't humanoids in 3.5 so it didn't matter.

That being said, and I do know that this isn't official, but it's good to know that everything is supposed to be right in the world...

Whoop! Are you going to work towards an FAQ/errata for that?

Do you watch college football? If so, who is your team? #fearameer

Mark,

Are you aware of the fact that Ettins, Ogres, and Derro (I'm sure there are some others) are not proficient with the weapons listed in their stat blocks (due to changes in creature type/subtype when converting from 3.5 to PF)?

Bob Bob Bob wrote:
The Derro should be taking penalties on its attacks (and the attack bonus shouldn't be that high anyway).

What are the problems with the Derro attack bonus that you're seeing? I'm not seeing anything wrong: +2 BAB, +2 DEX (from Weapon Finesse), +1 size.

Looking at 3.5, the Derro was considered a monstrous humanoid and thus had the "proficient with weapons listed in the stat block" caveat that was lost when it was changed to a humanoid.

I have a hard time believing that it was the intent to make these creatures no longer proficient with their preferred weapons.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The bigger question is whether or not the PDT is aware of these inconsistencies. I think it's a safe bet that virtually no one in the entirety of Pathfinder gaming actually gives a -4 to the ogre when it uses that great club (or to the ettin or derro).

Are humanoids proficient with those weapons listed in their stat block? For other creature types, it is mentioned that those types are "proficient with [simple/martial] weapons and those listed in the stat block"—or however it is actually said.

For humanoids, though, it is "simple weapons or by class". It seems pretty silly that an Ettin wouldn't be proficient with flails, that ogres wouldn't be proficient with a greatclub, or that derro wouldn't be proficient with the aklys. Is there some obscure rule somewhere that I'm overlooking?

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Not entirely sure why you think a blanket statement of "creatures are proficient with weapons listed in stat block" wouldn't fix the derro, skulk, et. al.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

There are spells available to get rid of negative levels, but they do cost time and/or money.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Ettins have been rocking with the flail for 5 years, and ogres have been terrorizing with great clubs for at least 14. I'm sure they're proficient with them by now.

That being said, I'm fairly certain that there is an obscure blurb somewhere that mentions that creatures are proficient with those weapons listed in their stat blocks.

NSFW, but completely appropriate given the awesomeness.

Wands are Spell Trigger items. The rules specifically state that Spell Trigger items require a standard action to use.

"Spell Trigger: Spell trigger activation is similar to spell completion, but it's even simpler. No gestures or spell finishing is needed, just a special knowledge of spellcasting that an appropriate character would know, and a single word that must be spoken. Spell trigger items can be used by anyone whose class can cast the corresponding spell. This is the case even for a character who can't actually cast spells, such as a 3rd-level paladin. The user must still determine what spell is stored in the item before she can activate it. Activating a spell trigger item is a standard action and does not provoke attacks of opportunity."

Unless the spell has a casting time longer than 1 action, in which case it takes that long to use the wand.

EDIT: Ninja'd by the big bone.

While not TV, WotC is making a concentrated effort to make sure the general public knows about their new product. It was actually an impressive multi-page spread in the printed version. I know D&D has been talked about in numerous papers across the country for the past 8 mos. or so.

The problem isn't that theory crafting is a part of the playtests, the problem is that people have trouble receiving criticism or being told "no" without getting butt-hurt.

Participate and contribute, but leave the 'tude at the door.

It wouldn't be for me; I use the PRD all the time at home (and sometimes at work) but my wife and I have no "personal devices" we could use to access it away from home, and lug our hardcovers with us to weekly games.

I realize we're unusual in that respect, but we can't be unique.

That's certainly true, and I'm not saying that such a list wouldn't be helpful; with regards to the OP, though, it appears as though the GM requires page references from a book. I'm merely pointing out that the PRD is as official as it gets (without having a copy of the book).

Andoran

Is access to the PRD not sufficient?

Regardless of what it actually ends up being, some people will still complain about how broken and OP it is.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The rules as written in the CRB are written in the context of creatures using appropriately sized weapons. The rules do grant an allowance that lets a GM make a reasonable interpretation for situations that fall outside of the standard paradigm.

It is certainly reasonable, and within the spirit of the rules, to allow a standard medium PC race wielding a large long spear—assuming they have a legal means to do so—to threaten at the 10 and 15 foot ranges, while not threatening at the 5 foot range.

EDIT: that being said, I'm not aware of a legal way that would let a medium character do this, so in all actuality, this post is merely for academic discussion.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

That would certainly make sense.

It was finessable in 3.5, and went away in the conversion to PF.

In my experience, the biggest time sink are players fretting about which equipment they want to buy or what spells to pick out. Everything else was ready to go in 5-10 mins.

This thread was one of the first relevant links on a Google search for a listing of all the Pawns and Minis for Rise of the Runelords.

Has anyone attempted to update the Original Poster's list with the more recent Pathfinder Battles and Pathfinder Pawn collections? (Including the upcoming Lost Coast set.)

I've very interested in seeing this for RotR, but also for other Adventure Paths and Modules.

I attempted to click on HangarFlying's link above, but I have to request access, and my requests have not been granted after two attempts.

Thanks!

Huh, never noticed that. I will try to fix the issue.

EDIT: Hmmmmm, try this link.

EDIT2: accidentally put the wrong link.
I have the setting set to anyone with the link can get to it without having to sign into Google.

My initial gut reaction is that it would provoke an AoO, but if you do suck the AoO, you don't lose the extract (like a caster would lose a spell if they failed the conc. check).

I'm not fixated on this position so I look forward to being educated on the issue.

Interesting. What you are saying is almost exactly the reason I would have thought you could do this.

You can copy a spell from a spellbook - or - from a scroll.

You can prepare a spell from a spellbook - or - .....

They seem to work almost identically, except that the scroll is consumed. I'm not suggesting that you should be able to use a scroll as a single page spellbook. The scroll would be consumed when you prepared the spell.

There is no need to prepare a spell slot from a scroll because you can just cast it from the scroll.

It's a good question. My hunch based on a first read is no. The Undersized Mount feat is taken by the rider. The Mount evolution is for the eidolon and to even qualify, it must be one size larger than the summoner.

Andoran

No, but it's a cool concept that might make an interesting archetype.

Why do people think you can get iteratives with a natural attack via FCT? There's nothing in the rules to support that.

Actually, that is perfectly false.

Feral Combat Training states that to your selected natural attack, you can apply effects that augment an unarmed strike.

An effect that augments an unarmed strike is that when your BAB gets high enough, you get iterative attacks.

Not all unarmed strikes do get iterative strikes: only the ones that are augmented by a high BAB.

Iterative attacks are an effect that augments an unarmed strike, so they are a benefit that is granted by Feral Combat Training.

Circular logic based upon incorrect information leads to wrong conclusions.

If a new edition means a whole new set of rules and changing the rules paradigm, then no, there is not a need for second edition.

If Paizo is willing to abandon its current requirement to maintain page references in order to allow for a reorganization of the rules, clarifications, while also including some tweaks to classes and/or feats and skill descriptions,I'm not entirely opposed to this.

Andoran

Should have cast raise thread, then he would have been safe from any reprisal or comments.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I can see it going both ways, but I would personally allow the surge as the rules for confirmation state that you use the same modifiers. It makes sense to allow it because the confirmation roll isn't actually a seperate attack, merely being a second roll to see how well your attack actually did.

I've been in a "retro" mood for the last few months and have been looking at various clone systems. Having only flipped through and skimming parts of the PHB, and reading the free download, I do have to say I'm impressed. While I'll never stop playing PF, and likely won't invest in 5e, I'd be more than happy to jump into a game to try it out. I do think it will be a successful system, and that alone is something we should all be happy about.
