Can a Druid wildshape or become an elemental while grappled?
Example. Lets say that a Druid is in humanoid form and is then grappled by a creature or even a spell. Would they be aple to wildshape into something smaller or to an elemental to escape?
Would they still take an AO or still need to break the grapple?
I'd say they would still have to break grapple.
Please clarify and if this in in the books, what page is it on?
Looking through the Bestiary 3 the Demilich says the first thing it will do is it's Banshee's wail, The DC is 24, But how much damage does it do? It is not listed. If it is based on it's HD then it would do 150 points of damage. It could also affect 15 creatures as the spell Wail of the Banshee affects 1 creature per HD.
AM I correct to say this is how much damage it does and to how many creatures?
I see the range of it as 20 feet, where as the spell is 25 feet +5 ft per 2 levels.
Don't hate me... To me this is the WORST book out so far. I got mine and find this book great if you are a new player, or you want to Min/Max your character so bad it is not funny.
I am seeing more and more of Pathfinder becoming a Min/Maxer system. I see it in PFS, I see it in regular play. This book offers nothing to a player of more than 5 year.
If your new to Pen and Pager RPG, then this book might be for you, that is if you want to make a character that is so bad arse they can kill a dragon at 5th level. If you want to play a good realiastic flawed character that is far more fun to RP... then avoid this book.
But do not take advice from a gamer of 30+ years, unless you want good advice
Hi All. We have a highly experienced Pathfinder group who also plays Star Wars Saga on occasion that is seeking 1 maybe two players depending. We play in North Loveland, CO every other Saturday, two times a month, and take a summer break in June - August. We start gaming near 2pm and end sometime near 10pm, later if things are rolling and cannot stop.
We sit down, have an awesome meal that everyone contributes items for the making. Food can range from BBQ burgers, to as fancy as Bacon wrapped Turkey. Of course home made pizza is always a favorite.
We do expect players to be there since the 5 of us plan to be there and schedule time around it. If work happens on occasion to take control of lives, well, we try to make the game up the following week and do 2 games in a row (Always Saturday)
The group is very experienced but do not let that frighten you. We love great role play, character development, and lots of fun.
All 5 of us are professional people who work and love to game on our free time, and we expect others that join us to be as well. Nothing more annoying than someone who says they will be there then are not.
Once again, this is a fun group and we are open to all Pathfinder players new or old, male or female, elf, or half-orc (As long as they bath) who wish to have fun, and be a part of the group. Many of us have known each other for many long years and have gamed together for many long years and have been playing in one long running campaign, and one newly started campaign
So do not delay, launch us an arrow with a message on it to myself (Delaney at delaneyalysa at comcast dot net) or to Bryan master_eji at yahoo dot com
Lets say a Barbarian, uses invisibility to sneak into a group of say 18 enemies. He then attacks one of the enemies and become visible again as per the spell. Could he on his next turn activate the ring again and continue this each round?
Seems very unbalanced if he could. A spell caster at least has to cast the spell and may get hit doing it and thus lose his spell. He also may be limited in how many times he can cast it.
Cold hard facts about Transitioning. First off the article that goes here. She is very passable. Trust me I have a female cousin who is a model that looks more male than she does.
If a male to female starts to transition before puberty usually by 12 - 13 and can stop the evil "male hormones" T as we will call them they can be as passable as any GG (Genetic Girl)Their voice does not lower, the hair on the body does not produce especially on the face, and the bones do not reshape... Yes they do reshape getting a heavier brow, thickening of the the nose, thinner lips, wider jaw, etc. Their hands do not get as masculine etc. So it makes since if someone is young to start early. I only wish I would have said something at the age of 11 instead of wating 30 more years. As it is I am passable but I have my moments and FFS (Facial Feminization Surgery would help me a ton).
Female to male do have it easier with hormones. Since their bodies have never had the "Damage" done by the horrible T hormone. It will do to a female what it does to a teen male and quickly. But as noted the bottom surgery for F2M is way behind and far more expensive.
As for the other hormone we will cal E what it can and cannot do is as follows. it does not remove facial hair. That has to be done with electrolysis. Laser helps bit laser is not perm while electrolysis is after many sessions which hurts. Laser is cake walk. It will thin the hair. it will soften the skin making it more transparent like a females, it will cause breast growth, it will redistribute fat and it can make you look more feminine but surgery is usually the answer to fix more things caused by T. You will lose muscle mass you will have weight gain and your emotions run from hot to cold in the flick of a switch. T does cause balding and anger E does not fix hair loss but can slow it. Usually with E a M2F can expect breasts 1 size smaller than a sister or a parent. In my case I am as big if not bigger which is not common and many opt for breast augmentation.
When I screen players for our group here is what I do.
I tell them all about the group, the background of it and each person (How long each of us have played and our experiences. I explain why we are looking for people. I explain the games and type of games we play and give them a little back ground on those games. I then start asking them about themselves. How long they have played, what games they play, what style of game they like. I explain based on that more information and that we love to RP but we do have combat that we balance it. I explain that we do a meal and everyone brings an item to make that meal. If with the 30+ minute conversation or emails back and forth I feel they might be a fit, I send them the group forum address which has rules for the group (drinking, smoking, hygiene, etc)If I hear back from them we try them out. Everyone has a 7 game trial period that either they or we can end at anytime if we don't see a good fit.
In this it is hard to find good players but when we find them, they rock and become great additions. We take our gaming seriously. He have had to many ruin it by being munchies (eats the food but does not contribute), not letting the group know they will or will not be there until just before game, getting drunk or showing up drunk and being disruptive.
Funny we wrote in 2/4, 4/2, 3/4, 6/8, 7/8, and yes some mixed 4/4, with 3/4 etc. Dream Theater and other Prog Metal does this a lot. They break away from the Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Poison 4/4
One of the first riffs I wrote was 7/8 took me YEARS to find a drummer that could handle it and know what to do with it. Funny that drummer was one I worked with long before that and he could not grasp it, then one day after we had started working together again he got it. I was asked SO many times how do you do you play that riff. I would never tell. I actually used that riff variation in a lot of stuff I was writing when I left the band.
The song was done in drop D on the 6th string and then 7/8 timing. it was very dark and very fast without being speed metal or thrash. It was pure on Prog.
Last time I picked up a guitar I remembered how to play it but my chops were so off I wanted to cry. I miss playing in bands
So I've been a metal head since the Late 70's starting with the Godfathers of Metal Black Sabbath. I jumped to hard Blues rock like Aerosmith then to the Real fathers of metal Judas Priest. While in HS a class mate told me about Iron Maiden and I got Number of the Beast which had just been released when I graduated. Not long after I got into Saxon and went to my first metal concert in 1983 to see the British metal Onslaught of Iron Maiden, Saxon and Fastway.
It was not long before I had over 500 albums of nothing but metal, most being pop metal bands like Dokken, the Scorpions, UFO, Y&T and then obscure bands like Tsunamie, RAIL and many more.
I started playing my guitar more bought a ton of equipment from Gibson les Paul, to a guitar that was refereed to my Neo-Space Age Explorer, to Yamaha, to my babb which was a Charvel Jackson model 2 and my Charvel DX series. I got keyboards, bass guitars, drum machines, and my amps a Peavey VTM 120 1/2 stack and my Marshall JCM 800 100 watt on a Peavey Sheffield 4X12 stereo cab.
I started off as a guitarist that did backing vocals and keyboards and the ability to play bass if needed and then latter became a lead singer guitar player and playing up and down the front range of Colorado at places like Bangles, After the Gold Rush, Pure Energy, Tanz, AJ's, The Armory, The Dark Room, Alibi's, Castaways and a few others. We got regular airplay on Original music hour on KBPI and the now defunct KAZY and on KILO. KILO even featured us in a 30 minute spot and interview. As an all original band we made little money but had great rewards. In many ways the sound of the music was like Maiden meets Dream Theater, Meets Metallica (Though I am far from a Metallica fan our bass player was)
While I am not playing in bands in more (Marriage and family life and a spouse that got jealous because you got asked out and hit on all the time by other musicians and fans put an end to playing. I tried to get back in to music a few years ago but found that my idea's, wants and needs did not mesh up with everyone elses in the state I live in.
I am still a huge Iron Maiden fan, as well as my Priest, But I really get into Kamelot (My drummer was great friends with Casey before my drummer past away from a brain tumor). Within Temptaion and Nightwish and Xandia are in my favs as well. But recently my BF turned me onto Battlebeast with their new singer and I'm really enjoying that band as well as his favorite UDO and old UDO Accept.
I don't make it to concerts much the last was Kamelot and Nightwish and it was the show Annette missed and was let go a few nights later from. I wanted to go see Kamelot and Delain but funds have not allowed me to go. Though I may get tickets at the last moment
67. Well you see it's a long story. My party and I had this ogre killing agenda/Policy. It didn't matter what the ogres did, if they were good or bad, we killed them all the same no matter what. Well long story short in 1 fight I got smashed by a bunch of ogres and my friends were more than happy to have be reincarnated. And well... guess what? As fate or maybe karma would have it, I came back as an Ogre and all of them wanted to kill me even though I was on their side.
Well betting odds
So I figure IF i'm lucky I'll make my 70's if not 63 seems to be the magic number
I do ride my bike when possible and was getting 18 miles 3X a day (Covering other workers shifts so can't until Aug) Plus I hike when possible, drink only on occasion, eat lots of fruit not enough veggies, avoid coffee and drink 1 pop maybe once a month with a pizza and OD on dark chocolate
I started playing WoT about 3 weeks ago. Love the game and got my BF hooked. It has a few things that just don't make since like how tough the Non-existent never made but designed French Tanks are. And how a 105 round bounces off tanks even when hitting in the weakest point not to mention shooting through Rocks and buildings and Seeing a tank shoot and it vanishes before your eyes even though it was not moving and the round misses even though it should have been Dead on. But I do enjoy the game for the most part. I loves a good tank game and this is he best out right now for simulation. To bad WOA is not as good as Warbirds or others. I find the planes hand squirrely with a joystick and sluggish with a mouse and then not having proper controls and cockpit makes it very disorienting and arvade like
MWO I have tried, and tried and tied and it just does not compute. I've had the smallest mech take out the Biggest mech and not even hurt them. I find MWO very frustationg
I am totally surprised no one said Mount and Blade.
This is an FANTASTIC set of games historically based and very fun to play. To date there have been 3 installments that I know of and M&B II in the works.
It is very inexpensive.
I'd say try it because to date this is one of the best hands down Historical based games
Mount and BladeTale Worlds
EDIT: Correction... Four. Mount and Blade Napoleon Wars which is Multi Player and looks fun
Oh I did. I played a Cleric named Brothur (Brother) Portillies. He spoke in a very heavy Irish accent. He could best be described as a "Friar Tuck" type. He loved to eat and drink and cook and talk about his goddess the Earth Mother who giveth and taketh away. She giveth this day our daily bread and it is our job to till her ground and take care of her plants to feed the poor starved children and less fortunate.
Yes he was very religious, cared not for violence until pushed and loved to talk and try to convert others to his goddess path or to at least see her wisdom and ways

I'm a 3.5 DM with a regular group of players in Greeley, but I rarely get to play a character because my friends don't enjoy DM'ing. I'm looking for group of adults I can join as a player. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
If you play Pathfinder my group is looking for another player or two. We are in north Loveland and play every other week. We have 2 DM's
Let me know if your interested and we can talk details
We are looking for a couple of players for our group. We have lost some do to job relocation.
We play every other Saturday in North Loveland from 2PM to 10ish and always have an awesome meal.
The group is very mature with over 100 years of combine experience
If your interested let me know. It's a great group that loves good RP and fun
Stopped watching a couple weeks ago. To my BF and it it failed. Sci-Fi Western is the best way to call it.
The Rich mine owner just like the wealthy guy in a western who really runs the town
The mayor who is wishy washy
The Pimp/Hooker reminds me of the slutty saloon girl
The rebel aliens. The bandits or natives that run rampant
Then you add the wealthy elves who are so underhanded. Almost like the mob or bad guys of the town.
Only the sheriff who like all other westerns is the drifter who they make the law because he fits the bill and is the best fit.
Yup done with the show
In my home brew world no one worships just one deity. Even clerics pay homage to the other deities. Clerics may focus on one in particular but it is the power of ALL that gods that they get their spells and powers from not just one.
I look at it like the Norse. No one worshiped just one deity. And to pay homage to Loki would bring disaster on that person, but you best pay homage to him or else disaster will also strike you.
On Golarion I think it is up to the DM to say yes or no.
I've played the "racist" character before. It was a one time thing but I played one.
She was human, of noble birth, who say her mother brutally rapped in front of her eyes when she was very young and then killed in a horrific manner by non human raiders. She was of privilege and from the start of the game she harbored a very strong dislike to all none humans.
She had a low wisdom as as she leveled I put points in her Wis not her core scores of St or Dex or Con as a fighter. By doing this she softened to none humans and began to understand them and not blame all of them for this horrible mis-deed she saw. In time she learned to care about them too.
To me this made it more realistic as you can learn not to hate or have a dislike for something

Well some I say Good bye to, others not. The one that just bailed because of gun laws I say good bye to. I'm a gun owner, love to shoot, but having background checks is OK with me. I already have to go through more background checks to get a job, to rent or buy a house, buy a car, get a loan, get a CC, etc. So why not guns? My view is let them go to Texas.
As for Marci she really wanted to stay and many wanted her to. She wants to come back but finding a hospital that would take her and allow her to run how she wanted to is not easy. Many of us would love to see her operate out of Ft Collins or Denver but Denver is not likely and Poudre Valley is now part of a huge network of hospitals called University of Colorado Health part of University Hospital in Denver. Both PVH and UCH are always in the top of best hospitals in the country

Yes, Colorado is very TS friendly in parts that is. Ft Collins, Loveland are great, Greeley is OK, Longmont OK, Boulder Great, Most f Denver is very good to great, Colorado Springs has a huge community but they also have a VERY religious Anti GLBT community (Focus on the family, remember them and the leader was even in a gay relationship). Pueblo not really sure i think it is OK, Trinidad is still good thanks to Beiber and Bowers. I cannot say much for Ft Morgan, Sterling, Brush, Yuma, they are not so good. La Junta and Lamar are poor, Grand Junction is OK to good. The front range tends to be the best spot and is not as conservative.
Colorado was also the first state even before the feds to enact an anti-Discrimination law for the GLBTI community and Gov Hick is pretty forward and wanting equal rights. We do have domestic partnership (Not as good as same sex, but better than not.) I think if Prop 8 is over turned you will see Colorado over turn their same sex marriage laws that prevent.

To do a name change takes time. You pay a filing fee I think of $25, then run an add in the paper of the town you live in which is about $35, Once this is done you have to pay the court costs which is not that bad I think it was $75 when I did it 7 years ago, then another filing feel after all is done. All in all it was pretty cheap.
The state you are born in is the state you have to do the gender change on the BC for. If your born in Colorado you can do it once you have surgery and have a dr letter. You Can however change your Driver Licence which just requires a dr letter saying that you are living full time in the gender you chose.
3 States will NOT allow you to change gender no matter what. Tennessee, Idaho and I think it is Ohio

NO Boulder is pricy very pricy. While Ft Collins is not cheap, Loveland which many lump into Ft Collins is very cheap. I have a 1300 sq ft apartment with a garage no one above me or below me washer/dryer 2 bed room for less than $700 a month in north Loveland

NOT ANYMORE :-( Marcie moved her practice to San Fran and works closely with Dr O who does FFS. She still has people in Trinidad, but the hospital there wanted more money and more other at her expence. they wanted her to raise cost on the SRS/GRS and lower OBGYN costs when she had OBGYN costs a little higher to try and help supplement the SRS/GRS.
It was a SAD day for those of us close to her that are TS

The coast is my preference, but I'm not refusing other areas. I lived in Aurora, Colorado for a few years. How similar to that is Ft. Collins?
Ft Collins does not have as much Hustle and Bustle and Violence as Aurora. Ft Collins is very diverse, less traffic, you can do anything here that you can do there and if you cannot, Denver is 1 hour away on a bad day of traffic. Ft Collins is very bike friendly meaning we have bike paths and trails every where AND we have over 15 Micro Brews just in Ft Collins and a cider bar (New Belgium, O'dells... NOT Odouls, Equinox, Patarus Creek, Ft Collins Brewery, Coppersmiths, C.B. and Potts. Loveland has Grimms, Big Beaver, Loveland Ale Works, Twisted Pine distillary). Loveland (5 miles south) has another 5+ and a distillary
You can get to the mountains faster in Ft Collins and we have a ton of great hiking trails.
Portland very LGBT friendly but not easy to get jobs. Across the river Vancouver, WA same also cheaper to live in per friends that live there.
Seattle NOT Cheap
Boston. Might as well live in Hollywood as it is costly.
To bad you want the coast i'd suggest Ft Collins, CO. We have a very friendly LGBT community a nice pride fest, jobs, cost of living in Loveland (5 miles south) is cheap and still lots of jobs and while Ft Collins is higher it is still cheaper than any of those other places by a long shot. And less than 15 minutes from the mountains and great hiking. Always rated in the top places to live. Colorado is also the fittest state and least amount of obesity (That is because we spend a lot of time outdoors). OH and a game group that is looking for 1 to 2 new people.
We have CSU, AIMS, Front Range Community, UNC all within 30 minutes of each other. CU is 45 minutes south
Yeah I don't notice an appreciable difference. It's not an immersion breaker for me regardless.
WOW it's as simple to see as a Driver driving an English car in England and a driver driving an American car in America. You notice right away which side the steering wheel is on.
To me it was as easy to spot as the nose on my face when I look in a mirror, But then again I shoot bows. I also have fenced, done SCA, done stage fighting with staves, swords and shields and thrown tomahawks.
It is as noticable as a laugh track in a TV comedy sitcom and some find that annoying. I find this annoying because it is ALL wrong and I expect more from PJ
I guess no one here shots a bow. First off the way it is held. Yould not hold the bow that way no matter who you are and draw the way she is. Next, while holding the bow with your Left arm and drawing with the right arm, the arrow would NOT go over the outside and the thump, but would be on the inside resting on the meaty part that connects to the index finger.
If we continue to her it is SO photoshop/green screen. You can see how she does not blend in properly with the background. Anyone that has done editing can see it as plan as day.
When I saw the trailer and I saw her jump I had to cringe, It looks worse than many games of today.
But anyway, shoot a bow like she is. No matter how good you are, you'll either miss BAD or hurt yourself.
The game is to take a headline and story that is real into a funny false headline and story
Here is the real one,
Here is the false one
BEIBER ATTACKS IN BELARUS
It was the most serious in a string of Beiber attacks on fans in Belarus, as the pop-star has turned increasingly aggressive when confronted by fans after wandering near homes, shops and schools.
"The character of the wound was totally shocking for us medical professionals," recalled village doctor Leonty Sulim. "We had never run into anything like this before."
The fan, who has not been named at the request of her family, was driving with friends toward the Shestakovskoye lake, west of the capital, Minsk, when she spotted the Beiber along the side of the road and stopped the car. As she tried to grab the pop-star, he bit her several times. One of the bites hit a major artery in the leg, according to Sulim.
The woman's friends were unable to stop the blood from spouting, and she was pronounced dead when she arrived at Sulim's clinic in the village of Ostromechevo.
