Pretty good list, although #4 is misleading. You can only do that if you're holding the charge, which is specifically for the round after you cast it.

Still pretty nifty, but not the same as the Magus.

Add in that having the wizard punch someone is a whole separate level of problems.

You always COULD spell/punch someone... but without the stats/build/BAB... WHY would you?!?!

Obviously sir, you haven't heard of Punch Wizardry. It uses the techniques passed down the Armstrong line for GENERATIONS!


I blame the rap music.

That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

Or, if you need it more simply.

The onus is on our attackers to prove their claims, the onus is not on us to disprove them.

heh, you said onus....

So.... no petition then?


I've always been a fan of "Rocs fall, everyone dies."

Sounds like an easily corruptible organization with no accountability is looking for patsies which could used for the opposite of the proscribed effect without them knowing.

I'll admit, the sound of joining a secret society that protects the world tickles my fancy to no end, but I can't very well put my trust in someone just because they named themselves after a trustworthy deity.

So the question is: Why should you be trusted?


By raw it would depend on if the growl is distinctive enough or how well the symbol is described.


Loving it all so far. real wiz stuff.


I'm currently playing in a shadowrun game as a charisma mage who considers himself something of a "lady's man". I'm looking for the cheesiest pick up lines you can think of.

Bonus points for:

Making it magic related
or
Making it somehow shadowrun related

remember, the cheesier the better.


I thought we'ed be talking about foam covered sticks.....

I would imagine that you aren't able to see someones name right off the bat, but someones guild (or settlement, etc.) would be visible at a glance. Due to them searing some sort of signet or some such.

This was discussed at length around the time of the kickstarter (can't remember which one..) and I think the general consensus was similar to this.

edit: and of course i get ninja'd by Stephen.... this is why i usually just lurk.....


Doo-dads.

It's my understanding that rep will be a bottleneck from joining the better settlements and learning the better skills.

low rep = little/no skill training
high rep = best skill training

Do you feel that this isn't enough? or am I just not understanding what you're trying to say?

separate yet equal....


They use it every day for work, but not for combat. The farmer is going to be using it nearly the same way every time they use it. In a combat situation it needs to be wielded in a variety of ways for it to be effective.

but right now I'm just arguing for arguments sake (mostly), it's 7am and I'm a bit tired and loopy. So good night/morning(/afternoon maybe?) and whatever you choose to do may it make the game you play more fun.


Me thinks the reason behind the lack of simple slashing weapons is that they are inherently more dangerous to the user. Bladed weapons tend to have a large cutting edge taking up the majority of the weapon. The smaller handle that comes with that leaves you with less over all control(which is where proficiency come in).

I think subbing a short sword works well for the machete if you change the damage type. It's not the same but it works well enough.

As for you wanting it to be simple, yes it is a tool but so is the scythe.

just my 2c, please take with a hefty dose of salt.

Yeah but "alchemical components" does not equal alchemist fire (or acid flask or any variation there of).

Creating, throwing, and the damage of the bomb are a supernatural effect and therefor(e?) subject to antimagic.

so.... useless then.

Lol, I was about to post the perfect retort to this, then decided I'll wait a few more days b4 getting hit with the ban-hammer.
Sure you were. I'm amazed you haven't been banned yet honestly.
Oh I was, it involved a troll, someone getting slammed, and someone's guild affiliation. And I have been banned, 3 times. You didn't know that of course, since youre brand new to the forums. You and Gaymeon.

I'm sorry, who?

There are only two flags remaining at this time, Criminal and Heinous. The system of "Hostility" has replaced the Attacker Flag, or at least the Devs have not explicitly mentioned that the attacker flag still remains, along with the other two.

Just a quick note: The attacker flag is still in place as mentioned here.

Alignment and Reputation Blog wrote:
When a character attacks a character who was not Hostile, the character making the attack gets flagged as an Attacker. If the character with Attacker hits their target again in the next thirty seconds, they become Hostile, and lose Reputation. Note that Reputation is lost on striking a target twice rather than on death; this means Reputation is lost when your intention to kill someone is made clear rather than if you are successful.

Just curious about whether rep increases will continue while logged out/using an alt or will only go up while logged in on a certain character.

and a follow up: if I have to be logged in, what are the consequences of sitting afk in a relatively safe starting town?


The eversmoking bottle has saved my bacon more times than I care to count.

Goblin Squad Member

Not to die until Q3.


no


if your going nonmagical (or just partially magical)I can't recommend master spy enough.


The thing about it is that extracts last a day while potions last damn near forever. That may no seem like a lot at first glance. It's quite the difference when balancing a magic item.

If your dead set on combining potions you might be able to tweak the words of power system when the potion is made. Something like two 1st level spells in one potion would count as a 3rd level potion for crafting purposes. (maybe a 4th level to balance out that words of power tend to be weaker than standard spells)


I've always loved the idea of a goblin lancer paladin using a goblin dog as a mount. not optimal at all, but fun as hell.

The Gnomish Battle Ladder for sure.


Sounds like a interesting read.

Roll:
1d20 ⇒ 17


Chalk, great for marking your path, finding invisible creatures, or proving that your plan is just plain mathematically better.

I have a friend who ALWAYS picks up soap. Why? you ask... soap bubbles......goram soap bubbles

huh........ some sort of dingo usually shows up by now with a petition. Must be running late.


I think there needs to be a way to expel them if need be. Something like a remove disease spell check. and/or possibly a heal check (surgery)


Fun fact, you don't actually need to be proficient in the weapon you coup de grace with. That being said, Katana sounds like a good choice.


What makes it really stupid is when you use it with simulacrums.


I always imagined ghost sound producing a wala like noise. you know its there, but can't quite pick out the words.


we be goblins.

that is all

One more for the pile of nits to be picked.

The Lamia Matriarch's attack bonuses are off. According to my calculations all of their attacks are one lower than they should be. it is as follows:

PRD wrote:

Melee +1 scimitars +14/+14/+9/+9/+4 (1d6+6/15–20 plus 1 Wisdom drain on first hit each round) or

touch +16 (1d4 Wisdom drain)

They have a base attack of +12, a strength of 20 (mod of +5), two weapon fighting (with 2 scimitars) -4, weapon focus scimitar (+1), and 2 +1 scimitars.

12+5+1+1-4= 15 for the weapon attacks (first 2 attacks)
12+5= 17 for the touch attack


I second what the wolf said.


looks like you need spell focus conjuration, you know because its a prereq for all the other summon monster goodies.

Whats the tldr?


It's all up to how the gm wants to run it. You could suggest a profession herbalist/survival roll and the "gold" gathered from it could be refined into scribing materials.

You had me at Smurf-berries.


A Sorcerer is born with innate magical abilities. It's in their blood. Does that make them a race? no. The reason they are Sorcerers(the class) is that they discovered that ability within themselves and learned how to utilize it. Doing that takes time and practice and they get progressively better at it. (<- leveling)


So this means that a Sorcerer can use a wand of magic missile without a UMD check even if they didn't choose the spell as a spell known? Because it's on their list of spells they can learn?

Just want to clarify.

We recently had Samsaran die in our Kingmaker game. While discussing if we should resurrect him, we couldn't if we could.

In the prd is says:

Quote:
Whenever a samsaran dies, it reincarnates anew as a young samsaran to live a new life.

Does that mean that if we tried to use say Raise Dead on him that it wouldn't work because he's already alive in a different body?

and to make this even weirder, what would happen if we tried to cast Reincarnate on him?

your thoughts?


yes
