Unless GMing in a home game yes.

I was told off for being a Paladin of Pharasma in PFS.

A document was shown to me that supports the claim, I just don't remember where it's from. (I quit PFS)

Hello guys is there any games on at SydCon?

I checked the SydCon schedule and I didn't see any Pathfinder games there. I would assume that all Pathfinder Society games will be hosted at Risen Rune at the Glebe Hotel.

Shadow Lodge is best RPG org.

QUESTION FOR GMS:

If I neglected to loot a body for gold, is the amount left behind deducted from the Chronicle Sheet?

I can't speak for other GM's, but I will generally give the party the gold if someone has been 'defeated'. There are certain times where I don't reward the full gold, but you have to be actively denying something or go out of your way to avoid certain things for that to happen.

GM Halved my gp loot because we didn't loot the bodies or did a diplomacy check to get extra stuff from NPCs from First Steps 3.

As if not getting the boon wasn't bad enough.

All my elves for PFS all hail from Jinin, but for some reason, none of them can legally speak the main language [Tien] without picking up Linguistics. You'd think being there for hundreds of years would force an entire nation of misplaced Elves to learn the language of their neighbours. Especially when the Emperor himself has a Minkaian name.

Yeah, it's kinda not fair.

The Hannya clan lent their forces- including "prince" Shou- to the Pathfinder in hopes for better relations with the Grand Empire of Jinin!

We owe no loyalties to Guai-lo! XD

Shadow Lodge

She's a stalker! She's from one of the other families amalgamated with the clan, one of which have taken human spouses (made her half-elf)!

Whoa whoa, now hold on, everypony....

HAY GUISE

I'm allowed to pay and have my weapon/armor enchanted with properties at my level of fame, right?

Ha ha ha, all elves fight evil and humans don't?

Domestically, yes their specialist units fight their old demon, but the fluff I've read doesn't portray them strongly as opponents of evil. There is the Callistria worship matter and its darkness, but Kyonin is not the centre of paladins. They are a bit too isolationist, flighty and focused on high culture/gardening/feuding to all be out fighting the good fight.

Okay, maybe they don't fight for the sake of Good, but they do fight when they can. I felt that one of the things that can prove this is that Elves have free weapon proficiencies whilst humans do not, which is an implication to me that an elf can and will fight, regardless of his/her vocation. E.g. I am a humble baker, but if you try to raze my village, you will taste the elven blade I used to slice my bread with.

Given their promiscuity and long life spans, I'd imagine that they should be far more numerous than they are presented in the setting, easily rivaling the human populace in sheer numbers. Perhaps they suffered from a plague of some kind?

Being a martial artist and martial arts enthusiast myself, I dislike the idea of a "Monk" being generalised as a Lawful, chi-popping member of some oriental order. But I guess there isn't a simpler term for it and they really didn't look into it much when it first came out.

As for Monks not belonging in a setting like Golarion, has anyone told this guy that there's Mecha and Aliens in this realm? Break it to him slowly, he might not be able to take the shock.

Shadow Lodge

It's funny how a Sword Saint and a Kensai are different in Golarion.

Basilisk. Romeo and Juliet if families were super powered ninja!

Ah, the neverending quarrel of the Iga and Koga. Have you seen the live action movie of it? It's called "Shinobi". Not very accurate, but fun enough.

As always I love the manga over the Anime. Read Y+M too, it's pretty good, same author.

Shadow Lodge

I had a group actually play a game where we get teleported into a D&D realm. The campaign was called "Immersion". We had to use stats as what we (approximately) possess.

I was a Barbarian.
STR 15
DEX 12
CON 11
INT 8
WIS 9
CHA 12

Feats: Improved Unarmed Strike

A fun thing we learned later in the game is that we were counted as Outsiders instead of humanoids.

Aw, I gave up on arguing that because it's going to boil up to an Alignment debate.

Whatever that Sap is that can take away barbarian rage, I want it now.

Shadow Lodge

I'd like to believe the more rubbish like this comes out, the more Pathfinder looks good.

Shadow Lodge

I see the Calistrian faith system as Matriarchial.

So sacred prostitution in Golarion isn't ugly, because that's the reality of the world.

In a realm where slavery is a legit trade, I'd say prostitution isn't so ugly. At least prostitutes get paid.

Shadow Lodge

Hm... this is kinda getting more Alignment/Pantheon-topiced than I expected. Relevant, I expected, but not to become the dominant issue.

I kind of prefer the Elf standards of the Forgotten Realms. Innately good, more reserved towards outsiders yet unquestionably passionate with those they let in.

Take for example Innovindil from Drizzt's The Hunter's Blades trilogy:

Spoiler:

Her mate died in battle just days ago, and yet she threw herself at Drizzt when they got alone.

Pretty much Drizzt goes "That's quite a short mourning period for an elf,"

She then teaches him about how love like an elf, having many lovers throughout the centuries of both human and elf. The point is not to live a ridiculously long tifetime, but to live through many different lifetimes through the ages.

So, yeah... that kinda justifies the quick 'getting over it' period.

Batman and The Punisher would both be worshippers of Calistria: They dedicate themselves nightly to avenge the deaths of their families on criminals.

Being a Batman fan, I would greatly disagree. If seen for vengeance alone, Batman's parents have long been avenged. His ongoing crusade against criminality goes far beyond that.

Same case with Frank Castle.

Shadow Lodge

I've heard of Dwelves and Mul before.

Shadow Lodge

I'd prefer that Elves were give the same versatility as humans would have. I mean, I'd like to play an elf that's a womanising perv because he is so, not because he was designed that way, like elves are.

Shadow Lodge

Never played the Alpha version.

Intersting idea though:

So I am an Elf. I am a Ninja, supposedly from Jinin... which is pretty much Japan for Elves.

Here's something to think about:

How offended would people be if Calistria had been designed as a male god, with no other changes in portfolio or personality?

I can almost hear the words "Sexism!" and "Misogyny!" being cried out from the horizon.

Ironically, everyone except the RPG club.

Shadow Lodge

Just doing a bit of browsing around the history and stories on some prominent elves in the realm of Golarion. I mean, I shouldn't generalise based on the fact that Calistria's a major god to them, but then I read about Merisiel, Lirianne's (Gunslinger Iconic)mum, Seltyiel's dad...

I dunno.

I mean, I do play an elf ninja who is a bit of a perv himself (he he he).

But yeah, are we really meant to be sex freaks?

Cha 16 (Playboy by day, terribly frightening by night)

He fights crime all night.

When he's not fighting crime, he's training.
When he's not training, he's memorizing useless s*!& in case the Riddler uses it in some riddle.
And I assume he sleeps at some point.

When the hell is he putting on the "Bruce Wayne, playboy" facade?

He should be known as a recluse who people aren't even sure actually exists...not a playboy.

He can take three to five hours of daylight time to manage his businesses and about an hour or two to socialise on early night. He can take nights off as Gotham is patrolled by 7 or so others from Batman Inc. Even Robin (current, Damian Wayne) does solo patrols. But I imagine he takes time off patrols to do major investigations.

I've had to play with two gay guys whose characters clung to each other so much that they were hardly helping the party. Same class and abilities too.

That's exactly why I'm taking it. I've been waiting years for this archetype. I don't really understand how the creators of the game would think that all martial arts styles=shaolin.

MEETUP.COM event updated. Sorry for misinfo.

Shadow Lodge

My character was trolling him the entire adventure by associating each phallic object we come across with Torch. He had to make Will saves each time. Almost convinced the GM that he's beginning to go gay for Torch as I kept reminding him.

After that adventure, all DMs are informed that the character must have some minor Torch-related event in every adventure he's in. XD

Shadow Lodge

Wow, I was waiting for it. There should be some fansubs somewhere.

I would pay money to hear:

"Sammu!"

"Onii-chan, tasukete!!!"

Shadow Lodge

Anything with a chase. I love the obstacle checks.
