Numerical bonuses would not stack because both the item and the spell grant enhancement bonuses.

I'd use the FAQ on taking items off ends the spell effect, so take off the shield should end the fly to overland upgrade.

Yeah, that was obviously my concern. You don't think the shield's description that specifically mentions that the armor casts the spell affects it?


Quote:

CELESTIAL ARMOR

Aura faint transmutation [good]; CL 5th
Slot armor; Price 22,400 gp; Weight 20 lbs.
DESCRIPTION

This bright silver or gold +3 chainmail is so fine and light that it can be worn under normal clothing without betraying its presence. It has a maximum Dexterity bonus of +8, an armor check penalty of –2, and an arcane spell failure chance of 15%. It is considered light armor and allows the wearer to use fly on command (as the spell) once per day.

Quote:

CELESTIAL SHIELD

Aura moderate evocation [good]; CL 7th
Slot shield; Price 13,170 gp; Weight 7 lbs.
DESCRIPTION

This bright silver or gold +2 blinding heavy steel shield is impossibly light and handy despite its size. It has no armor check penalty or arcane spell failure chance, and it allows the wielder to use feather fall on himself once per day. A creature wearing celestial armor while wielding a celestial shield may command the armor to provide overland flight rather than fly once per day.

Quote:

Magic Items, Wearers, and Durations: If a magic item grants an effect with a duration to the wearer, can I put it on, activate the effect, take it off, and keep the effect active?

No, as soon as you remove an item that grants an effect to the wearer, you are no longer the wearer, so any remaining duration immediately expires. The same is true if the item affects the owner, wielder, and so on. If the item's effect does not specify the recipient as the wearer (or owner, wielder, etc), then unless it says otherwise, it remains when the item is removed.

If I take off my shield, do I lose Overland Flight, or does the spell continue as long as I wear the armor (assuming duration of the spell hasn't expired, of course)?

I'm feeling terribly sad about the loss of the political threads. The latest incident feels like all of us losing some very educational threads because of trolling. I wish the troll had been removed, not the discussion.

I'm sad to lose them myself. I especially enjoyed some of the postings about peoples own participation in politics by running for local office, attending meetings, protests, etc. With that said, the issues go far beyond one troll, one thread, and sometimes even to other parts of the messageboards. Even longtime frequent posters occasionally had posts removed, etc. While these issues were always present, the level of gnar has ramped up in the last year or so. If the mods are anything like me, they aren't looking for more of that kind of stress, especially at work!

I'll miss some of the really great discussions we once had, but I look forward to talking to the same folks about science, history, culture, and maybe even Pathfinder!

Unfortunately some of that is going to fall under "politics."

Congratulations, I suppose?

Certainly not the outcome I wanted. I will continue to call out racists and racism. Even if it eventually gets me banned. There is no remaining neutral with bigots. If you don't loudly oppose them then you silently support them.

To be perfectly clear: this is not a decision made by one person on our staff, but a decision made upon the feedback from multiple staff members, by multiple staff members. It is also based on the feedback of a number of community participants (many of them who have chimed in over the course of years), both in Website Feedback threads and in places that crop up site-wide. It was certainly *not* an easy decision, thus our trial period for political threads. We understand not everyone will agree, but feel it is necessary to put in place to move the community forward.

I meant you in the plural sense. I understand it's not one person decision. I still think it's the wrong decision. It awards those who wanted to shut down discussion while leaving the worst offenders here to spread their hatred in other threads. Racists are pretty good about making any topic race. They are certainly not limited to political discussions.

When a Paizo staff member locks a thread over the weekend, with a note that we will revisit when we return to this office, it generally means we're in the middle of some non-work thing and cannot devote the time to address it. I'm assuming that this is in reference to a thread locked on Saturday afternoon (while, to be perfectly honest, I saw by chance while running errands). We typically only respond in-depth on off-hours if we have determined a thread or post to be an "emergency" or if we can tell it's probably going to be even more off the rails by the time we walk in on Monday.

It may be relevant to indicate that we've now made the decision to restrict political threads. You can find information about that in this sticky thread.

RE: banning individual users. We don't discuss goings-on with individual accounts publicly, out of respect for our users' privacy. If you need to report an individual account, pinging us via email at community@paizo.com is most helpful.

This thread was born out of frustration with that thread being locked but that is hardly the only example. I certainly understand wanting to take the easy way out and you are, of course, within your right to run your website the way you wish, but it's hard to see this as anything other than a victory for the bigots.

I rather Paizo be a welcoming place rather than accommodating bigots.

And yet, part of not accommodating bigots is being welcoming. The premise of this thread is advocating banning, which is as not-welcoming as can be.

Next, there's a massive difference between "accommodating bigots" and "locking threads that get racism-bombed". Paizo's current procedures do not accommodate racists. They just don't apply a digital death-sentence to the unenlightened.

Look, I get it. Hot-button topic. Horrible behavior. Unconscionable, sociopath, acts. Got it. Agreed, no less. I'm not arguing for tolerance here, or even saying that Paizo is tolerant. I'm merely putting forward my personal view that outright banning is... not the right action for that crime*. I don't expect you to agree or even - truth be told - want you to agree. The OP asked "why", and I posited some reasons that I think might answer the question.

*So what might Anguish consider ban-worth? How about threats to a person? Yeah, that'd do it for me. Or stalking, which is much the same thing. Or - get this - repeated infractions for lesser violations (which Paizo does ban for).

I, actually, don't advocate banning but given the choice between locking threads over one particular person or banning that person, I prefer the ban.

How do you propose to do any of that in a locked thread?

Neutral good is even more equally good..?

If you are going to argue for any of the goods being the most good, it's neutral good, because it's good without any other consideration, or a balance of all other considerations. The other goods are, by definition, going to have to compromise good at the expense of something else at some point.

I do believe you may have missed my point.

Strong point aside... based on historically similar cases, this is probably best served by emailing Community, rather than going public.

In any case, don't expect significant response until Monday, when moderation staff are back in the office. The lock may only be temporary, meant to keep the situation under control until such time.

A politely worded email explaining your point of view in this matter probably wouldn't be a bad idea either. It would be unfortunate if a misinformation-peddling troll ruined things for everyone else.

You are probably right. It's just aggravating and it's happened more than once.

The paladin is not always right. The other goods are just as good, and equally valid. (Neutral good even more so)

Why lock threads with racist posters rather than banning the racists?

Leftist teacher’s homework assignment slams bankers

It actually does seem inappropriate to me. There are probably plenty of bankers who are not actively working to destroy America and some of them might have children attending school. I certainly wouldn't like a right-leaning teacher telling her students that all government workers are parasites or something similar.

This should be covered by auto insurance?

Sadly no.

My friend was judged at fault, so the insurance covered the liability maximum. $25k, I got nothing but a $55,000 bill. Suuuucked.

Lost my job in the process. Was not fun.

The s@!~ty part is where to go any further you would have to sue your friend due to their liability.

Don't sue the friend. Sue the hospital that missed the knee injury.


He'll just blame the democrats


Flag it and move on. You're not required to participate in every thread. If the mods deem it necessary to close the thread, they will.


He said "lawyered up in that way." The "in that way" was, I believe, a reference to Mike J's comment about arguing in the alternative.


What chance would you give a character firing at a empty square in front of or behind an invisible creature?


Casting the spells wouldn't slow you down actually. If you look at standard movement rates, the game only expects you to take a single move action a round. (A little slower even, when calculating long distances.)


I would require the alchemist to work on it the full hour. Just like I would require them to work a full minute for each extract.


I probably wouldn't hire this lawyer.

We also don't have text stating it merely has Mithril qualities (such as in the case of Celestial Armor/Shields), but instead text that outright states it's made of Mithril.

Which, according to the Gamemastery Guide, is both illegal to craft from scratch (due to not being able to create a Mithril Tower Shield, the equipment that Force Tower is based off of) and impossible to find (due to the aforementioned reasons as stated prior).

You can make anything you want out of Mithril. The question is, is it still usable without the aid of magic.

Not to mention moving to an area with lower property values means less funding for schools which means fewer opportunities for your children.

The free market absolutely does not solve the problem though. Not in urban settings at least. Some form of subsidized, affordable housing is needed.

Because land is the premium and you can't invest in more of that. So it's more effective to make expensive housing on the limited land available and if poorer people can't find a place to live, that's their problem.

Rent control may not be the appropriate solution, but something needs to be.

Wow, this puts me on the side of the debate I don't often take. :-)

We know that price ceilings don't work. Nor is this a case of highly inelastic demand...yes, everyone needs a place to live, but one can usually move farther out from the urban center and find lower housing costs. If people value living closer to the urban center, then they'll be willing to pay more to do it. If not, they can drive in. If that's truly not viable, then business will grind to a halt (no employees), and property values will drop.

I guess in this case I have to disagree and say that something doesn't have to be done; instead, we should just leave well enough alone. I'm going to have to take the position that having to drive out to the 'burbs isn't actually a problem...or at least not one that the government should try to solve.

What this actually results in though is poorer folks still needing to take city jobs, and also forced to spend far more time each day commuting, not to mention having a larger portion of there paycheck get invested in said commute.

I mean I live on Long Island, and there is no way I can afford to live within a half an hour of the place I work. So I either rack up the miles on my car on a minimum hour and a half round trip commute, or I pay 11 bucks per day to take a train into work.

$300 or so a month is less than most car payments are going to be and not much more than a cheap leased car payment. Let alone insurance, M&R, personal property taxes...

Good luck getting that car loan with poor or no credit. When I bought my first (new) car, I had to get my wife to co-sign because I had no credit history. I made the mistake of following everyone's advice of not signing up for a bunch of credit cards while in college and only buying things I could afford to the point the dealership thought I had given them a fake ID.

What would happen if serious, undeniable evidence was to surface that Trump was actively working for Russia against American interests?

It depends who's "American interests" are being worked against. Politicians of both parties have been working against the interests of the vast majority of Americans for decades, and it hardly raises a peep.

So far, I have yet to see anything Trump has done that raises to the level of Reagan working with Iran on the hostages, Bush/Clinton selling out American workers to overseas competition, Obama killing US kids with drone strikes, and the nauseating "Special Relationships" with the Saudis, Israelis, etc.

Until something more then questions and innuendo comes up, this all seems like the dying gasp of Cold War bulls**t propaganda to me.

Wake me up when I need to piss in a radiator or drink some deer blood with the ghost of Patrick Swayze.

So no politician should be punished because they're all bad? That's a productive attitude.

The director's cut of Daredevil is much better. Apparently after focus testing the movie they decided to rip out most of the plot to shoehorn in a bigger love story.

Moore was the best. For Your Eyes Only is still my favorite Bond film, and the duo of Moonraker and The Spy Who Loved Me gave us the ultimate foil to the ultimate late 70's spy in Jaws (d.2014). The fact that he only has 9 film credits post A View to a Kill is a loss for the movie going public.

As I posted on facebook this morning, here's a bit from The Spy who Loved Me's Theme "Nobody Does It Better":

"Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you're the best."

Well he was 57 when he made A View to a Kill. He decided to stop doing Bond films when he found out he was actually older than his costar's mother.
