Andoran

As much as I like this spell, I just cannot find a way to use it. I imagine it would be good some how in exploring a site but which questions would one ask? How have others used this spell?

Silver Crusade

OK the item in mind is a bracelet which can cast produce flame. In this case it is a cleric with the fire domain, so it is a 2nd level spell. I suppose the cleric could try to hire a level 1 druid to aid in the effort. Furthermore, I can't quite figure the formula to get a price on this gadget. I suppose it could be charged for maybe 5 daily uses? Or 50 charges? 10 charges? Unlimited? The crafter is 3rd level and has craft wondrous. Help?

Silver Crusade

So my party is looking for a temple of Sarenrae for healing, but it looks like aside from Abadar and obviously Pharasma, that's it. Or is it? I basically ruled that there are several followers and a smattering of clerics through town, but no actual temple to the dawnflower. Am I missing something? What have others done? Perhaps I could put a few good shrines at the grand mausoleum?

Silver Crusade

So my party has nearly cleared the outer grounds of the manor. After the first encounter with the centipede, they had to retreat and heal Dex damage for 4 days. After that, they returned and searched the right wing of the outer grounds.. Now they are leaving to rest again before exploring the inside.

Now what about the div that lairs here. Wouldn't he notice that his outter buffer has been breached? After 5 days wouldnt the div notice the activity? What steps could he take? Possibly lure in a new buffer critter from the random encounter list?

Silver Crusade

Just kind of waiting to see what this looks like.. Has anyone gotten it yet, and have feedback?

Silver Crusade

This thought hit me recently regarding clerics and the way they cast spells. This is similar to the way 2nd edition priests worked.

Clerics choose 2 domains as normal and gain all of the powers as they would normally. They also access the other domains. The cleric can only prepare their domain spells. The slot normally reserved for domain spells is now used to prepare normal cleric spells ( kind of a flip).

What does everyone think? Where this would seemingly make more sense, it would limit clerics. Would giving them all of their possible domain powers offset the limited
spell list?

Silver Crusade

So can this spell affect invisible foes in range? Also, if it does, what effect does being on fire have with being invisible?

Silver Crusade

We are on book 2, and just leveled up to 5th. My wizard is an evocker 4/ orc/gold draconic sorc 1 blaster.

I have Burning arc and Blindess/deafness already. I need 2 new spells, create pit is one and the other has to be evocation. I really need a defensive spell, but want the pit. A friend say that frost fall would fill the bill. Thoughts?

Silver Crusade

So for mummy's mask, someone is looking ant rocking a Nodachi. That's fine with me, but since those are likely more common across the world, how can I handle the accessability? Like 20-50% more costly (50%?), and maybe when players go to find eastern magic weapons/armor, instead of the 75% chance to find it like a 25% chance?

Silver Crusade

1 person marked this as a favorite.

So I am gearing up to run Mummy's Mask, and have a player considering playing an invulnerable rager. What do you people think? Is it too powerful?

On a note, I am also running what is likely to be a 5 man team, so I am anticipating having to up the encounters at times.

Osirion

Alright so my party is in the works for Mummy's mask. Thus far, we have..
Emberkin cleric of nethys
Half elf paladin, undead scourge
Necromancer (?)
Goblin Rogue

So I am curious how Osirions would generally react to such a party. The top 3 should be OK one would think, but a Goblin? How would society treat this guy and or his friends? I have some ideas but would like more input.

Osirion

Ok I am looking to build an arcane archer, and I am faced with the debate of when to take feats. Let me post the basics.

Dwarf Ranger
Str 14, Dex 16, Con 14, Int 10, Wis 15, Cha 8.

At 7th level, I am taking a level of Empyreal bloodline Sorcerer.

I like dwarves quite a bit, so I am not to keen on changing the race or stats. It is for a homebrew campaign, so I am also not keen on min maxing for optimization cheese effect.

Now once I hit 8th level, here are the feats I can see

1. Point blank shot or deadly aim
2. precise shot or precise shot
3. deadly aim or point blank shot
5. rapid shot
7. weapon focus bow.

To summarize, I am eyeing point blank shot, deadly aim, precise shot, rapid shot, and weapon focus, but I am curious as to which order. Any ideas?

Osirion

So what is a good low/no magic setting or system to play? I roll dice with some that are not comfortable with pathfinders magic system, and I am considering giving them some other avenues to pursue. I know of savage worlds, which I am a big fan of, but is there anything d20?

Silver Crusade

1 person marked this as FAQ candidate.

So Say a fighter with a 10 strength is wearing no armor, but is carrying a heavy load. Does the -6 check penalty apply to attack rolls?

Cheliax

So if you cast wind wall INTO the area of a cloud, does it effectively create an area that the cloud now cannot enter? Like you could cut a stinking cloud in half? Does this spell work on obscuring mist?

Silver Crusade

So I am gearing up for a casual campaign, and it looks like I will have 2 full time players, and maybe 1 more. I figured it would be a good idea to add in an NPC friendly to help fill the ranks, but since the party is so small, and the party needs melee types, I might go with a fighter and possibly a warrior (or just 2 warriors at first).

How would people split the experience points in these cases? RP and problem are for PCs only, and combat is for all? Or..?

Silver Crusade

So I am trying to advance a creature. It has a 1/3 cr, and the template is +1 cr. What is the new CR? 1/2 or 1 or 2?

Andoran **

So after a miserable defeat at the first encounter in The Waking Rune, I am done. No more PFS for me, at least for a while. The requirement to meta game to survive, the inventory tracking sheet, thousands of pages of data....I am backing away. Sorry guys, but the thrill is gone.

Silver Crusade

So according to the SRD, which is unofficial, it lists the medium/younger allosaurus's claws as a secondary attack, then its a primary at 7th level (when it advances). This is not listed in the PRD (which is the official source).

Is this a typo in the srd, or am I just missing something because I have not actually referenced the beastiary 2?

Silver Crusade

So if you have a shield, not donned, Is it a move action to draw it and a move action to Don it? Is donning the same as drawing a shield? We seem to have some confusion between drawing and donning a shield in my area. Thanks.

Silver Crusade

So I am part of a new party that is being built. We have a pack lord druid, a gunslinger, an evoker, a paladin, and a yet to be named. Would it be better to have wolves or lions running about? I understand the lion has pounce, grab all that good stuff later, but wolves tripping people is just tempting. Thought?

Silver Crusade

So this spell is a way to get an escape artist check to escape a grapple, which is awesome. Now here is my question - its an immediate action, which can be preformed at anytime. Say the caster gets grappled - since its an immediate action, does that mean there is no concentration check to cast this? I would imagin that is the intent, but the timing is the question.

Silver Crusade

SO one of my players wants to take 1 level of wizard to get a familiar. He is a tanky fighter, but wants the critter... His int is 7, so casting 1st level spells is not happening, but what of other functions? Cantrips? Daily powers? Using wands/scrolls? Obviously casting in armor is an issue as well, but...?

Silver Crusade

1 person marked this as a favorite.

So I have played my lore warden /paladin up to levels 6 and 2 respectively. I have +1 mithril full plate, a +1 cold iron/+1 mithril meteor hammer, and the following feats: Weapon focus, Combat expertise, weapon specialization, power attack, improved and greater trip, combat reflexes, two weapon fighting and improved two weapon fighting.

When I hit 9th level, I am kind of at a loss of where to go feat wise. I am considering improved critical - he has 4 attacks per round, with a 20 crit weapon, so maybe the sheer number of dice rolled will work out. After that....more two weapon fighting feats? double slice (would that work with power attack?)? Bleeding critical? Other manuveur related feats?

What do you folks think?

Silver Crusade **

So what can my familiar do? Say I have a monkey.... Can it

Fetch and apply an oil?

Read a scroll with my use magic device?

Grab my wand of magic missiles and plink away with UMD?

Grab a scroll for me to read, saving me the move action?

Now say I have an improved familiar. A Faerie Dragon....or Quasit. It seems the faerie dragon could read the scroll/use the wand as it is effectively a sorceror, but what of its anatomy? The Quasit has the hands, but must it use UMD?

Thanks folks...the FAQ on this seems kinda vague to me, and I have never actually ran a familiar before.

Silver Crusade **

So, for my next character I have been assigning chronicles to, its going to be a wizard again. I am kind of hovering around a teifling necromancer with a familiar, with abjuration and divination as opposed schools. I am considering opposing enchantment instead of divination, and could use some ideas as to alternate wizard characters. Thoughts?

Silver Crusade

So this seems to be the new thing. The question is, which slot would one take, and for what item? Amulet of mighty fists? check. Armor? Check. What new slot/item would people think to take?

Silver Crusade

So if you need a minimun stat,can a boost item (or spell) allow on eot take this? Say a paladin gets a headband +2 int, raising int to 13 - does this qualify for the feat unsanctioned knowledge...?

Silver Crusade

So how would this work. Level 1 barbarian, 4 levels of alchemist, vestigial arms discoverey taken twice, two weapon fighting feat.

Can this character wield 4 weapons? 2 two handed weapons? a two hander and a weapon and shield? what are the penalties?

Osirion **

So here is a situation which we in our local chapter are trying to figure out. We have 2 tables a week, and about 5 gms. We get 10 - 14 attendees to our games, and its fun, but for us gms types, it can become a chore. Some of us gm 2-4 sessions a month, we can sometimes get 2 super crowded tables of 6-7, when we could get a 3rd table to thin the ranks if we had another gm. Over all, having a willing 'staff' of 8-9 would really be a better deal and provide a better experience for all involved. Gming 1 time a month would be optimal.

How do we handle this? We have considered our roster of players, and could possibly get 2-4 to gm, but it seems it would take some enticement. What have other societies done in this situation?

DO we try some reward system? If so what? Do we get draconic and start running 1 table a week, with gm priority?

Osirion **

Alright so as fate would have it, I need another character for society. I already have:
Cleric (asmodeus)3
Fighter3/paladin2 (tengu)
Barbarian 4/rogue1 (halfling)
Cleric (Erastil)8
Conjurer 10

I am lost on what to play next. A dwarf fighter with axe and shield? A saurian shaman druid?

Maybe, just maybe, a sorcerer. I love spell casters, and have never played a sorcerer. I cannot pick a bloodline however - draconic? sylvan? elemental? What race?

Osirion **

OK last night this came up. Rumor has it that you cnnot have a 4th level spell wand. I looked around and have not found this to be the case - true or not folks?

Osirion **

So once my society wizard hits 11th, I plan on snagging true name. It seems this is legal for society, and my question is how have others treated this in society play? The biggest prize seems to be the Glabrezu for 11th level, so I would love to take that, barring an alignment problem....thoughts?

Osirion

So after not playing my conjurer for 6 months, and learning alot more about pathfinder in general, I went back and edited him. It turns out that I have a bunch of money to spend, and I really need an idea of where to spend it because I plan on playing him this week. A few details on what he has are as follows:

9th level wizard, with a bunch of spells what I have bought/ scored from fellow mages over time. What are key spells that I may need?

He currently has a meta magic rod (lesser empower), +2 cloak of resistance, +1 protection ring, 4 pearls of power (level 1, and a headband of intellect +4, plus various minor wands.

I have about 25k in gold to spend. I hd my eye on the staff of fire for under 19k...what do you guys think?

Osirion **

So I could use a little help. I have 5 pfs characters, and only 1 is registered right. I tried to register a new one (Who is my 5th character) and registered as my #2 (thus getting all of my #2 gm credits). Its almost like i need to wipe them all out and re register my characters. How do I do that (please keep this simple).

Osirion **

So I am playing a paladin in society, and have found that I need a few things cleared up, mainly regarding prisoners. I know this could turn into a 200+ comment thread about ethos and philosophy, so lets keep it simple.

First off, I am playing him to where he really will not tolerate going to far out of the grey area. Stealing is not cool, killing is not cool, and other similar activities are not cool. I also do not want to play the idea that 'just do it while the paladin is not looking' either, as I think the idea of the Silver Crudade stands for an ideal along the lines of making the Society a force for good in Golarion. For what its worth, my paladin follows Erastil.

That said, I can rp through alot of the situations that come up, but when we take a prisoner for some reason, I need a standard procedure. I guess when in town, we should turn prisoners in, but what about out in the bush? tie them up and leave them? I cant drug them (poison is not an allowed paladin option); Do I simply administer justice based on thier crimes? I mean in game of thrones, Ned stark is along the lines of Lawful good and the first thing he does is execute someone for violating an oath....I rather find this approach appropriate.

What do you guys think? Is there some source that might help me make a call in a given situation?

Osirion

So would this work with this weapon? I would imagin yes if you use it as a 2 handed weapon, or maybe as a reach weapon, but what about as a double weapon?

Osirion **

Is this bloodline legal? it seems the way the resources page reads its hard to tell whats legal or not (its kind of worded like a proposition you would not want to vote for, but the wording dupes you to vote the other way).

Osirion

So after shelving my first character in society, I have dusted him off and did an in depth audit of his gear and gold to see where he stands. Apparently my 9th level conjurer has about 26000 gp to spend...Wow!

Now what do I need as a high level PFS wizard? He currently has (as far as major $$ items)

Headband (+4 int)
+2 protection cloak
Lesser meta magic rod of Empower
+1 ring of protection
various wands (most powerful is a wand of glitterdust from a chrinicle sheet)
4 1st level pearls of power
Various scrolls

I use the character mainly as a bringer of monsters, but have spent alot of money on scrolls over his career adding to his spellbook. I would also be open to suggestion on what spells he should have. I have the basics (haste, dispel, summon monster, Pits, wall of ice, improved invisi, fly, stoneskin, stinking cloud, web..) and would appreciate an idea of tactics I should use. I am of the old school thought of wizard = blaster, but know its a different age and style anymore. So far, summoning stuff and blasting as appropriate or controlling the field has proven fine, yet he is still overshadowed it seems by powerclasses like magus/gunslinger/monks ect..

I considered ugrading the cloak to +3 and/or a staff of fire....thoughts?

Osirion

Help me out here a little if you please. The pcs are in the ethereal plane and are facing an incorporeal creature. Is there any change to its status? its incorporealness does not change at all in relation to the PC's attacks? (like a pc attacks it with a non magic sword? It takes half damge from non ghost touch magic weapons?)

Osirion

OK my Tengu lore warden1/paladin1 has a little money to spend - about 1300 gp. He uses a meteor hammer (1 head normal, the other MW cold Iron), and wears MW Agile breastplate. I am torn between making the second hammer head mithril (1250) or +1 to the armor.....thoughts?

Osirion **

Whats the chance of a greater flow of society scenerios? I have played faithfully for a year now, and I am having a tough time finding new scenerios to play in. I am sure others are in this boat.

What might be ideal, I would think, is 4 per month. 2 low tier, and then 1 mid and 1 high. As of now 28 or so is nice, but still leaves one wanting. Plus the idea of more 1-5 or 1-7 tiers would be great because I would think most of the play is done in these tiers.

I imagin there is a good number of submissions that come in, versus what gets printed. And to be honest, some of the scenerios I have played left alot to be desired, so if its a quality thing the ones that are getting shot down must be written by 3rd graders, or is there another issue.

I dont mean this in a bad way, I am just curious as to why the flow is what it is, whats the hold up regarding submissions, and whats the chance of increasing the flow?

Osirion

Alright - how do you get a dragon on the ground? Our party is part of a caravan, and we spotted one flyin around, so we know its next session. Ideas?

Osirion **

Ok I am trying to put this thing together, and need some advise about the map.

1. Once the party negotiates the belfry it says they descend from it the 'b' on the map. This is not noted - where is this supposed to be?

2. Area 4, the doors to the north lead off to....what? the same area as describd as beyond the scope of the mod in area 3? full of hobgoblins/whatever? Or just a big empty room ?

Osirion **

Is this where you submit adventure ideas? I have adventure ideas to share, but lack presentation skills in a bad way - many years of running homebrew adventures off of notes, but with severely limited computer skills.

Osirion **

Well here I am again trying to cause a little trouble...

Can an animal companion trigger a magic weapon ability, such as +1 armor spikes of spell storing? Lets assume the critter has 3 int and linguistics. What do you guys think? Whats been written about this?

Osirion

So I have created this now infamous Tengu Lore Warden for society play. I am torn about what I want to do vs advise I have gotten. Some points are as follows.

1. Armor. Everyone swears up and down that it will be 'worth it' to just survive until about 5th level then lack of heavy armor will be moot. I have endured 2 final fights by bleeding in negative hp because I get smacked in round 1 or 2 and cannot contribute.

2. I have some advise to take a level of Manuveur master monk. Sounds like a killer idea, But I am deciding to take a level of paladin - heavy armor use, smite evil and social skills (for rp and faction challenges) are winning over the extra CM (not to say I cannot just take that monk level too...)

3. I guess what I am getting at, is I prefer to not bank on 1 thing. I want to be able to do manuveurs, but I want to be effective beyond that- feats in missile weapons, manuveurs, and generally being 'pretty good' at several things as opposed to dynamite at only 1 thing.

What do you guys think? Does the generalist fighter type win out over the niche fighter?
