There's a large and glaring typo in the upper left corner of page 16.

That's not a representation of the Solar System. There's only one Solar System, and we're in it. It's called Solar because our sun is named Sol. Other star systems are called by their stars' names. Please give Golarion's sun a proper name so we can start calling its star system by its proper name.

Solar system is also used as a generic term as well. Star system is used to describe systems composed of multiple stars orbiting each other.

Anyway treantmonk, thanks a lot for creating this thread.

Sometimes something like this comes up where I assume everyone would agree on how a rule should be used, then end up getting surprised when it turns out there are different interpretations.

Love to discuss and get all those different interpretations on the table so we can debate them and make up our own minds in the end once we have considered all the various assumptions.

Thanks for participating.

P.S.

I like casting in alternate forms too. Hopefully Pathfinder creates an alternative to the Natural Spell feat that could help out other casters taking other forms.

I put up one possibility as a start up thread. I do think that some care needs to be taken with this option though. We really don't want to create the equivalent of Wizarzilla with this.

Considering that this is a gaming forum, I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Continnum by AetherCo, the only game to actually develop a system of Time Combat.

It starts with the presumption of characters that have the power to time travel at will, having had been nano-engineered with the capability to do so. The premise is given such abilities, what kind of society would develop?

I am unsure WHY these stats are like this. When you take a comparable neighborhood that is composed of poor underpriviliged Americans from European descent, you tend to get less crime overall than in African American neighborhoods of the same make-up.

Why?

I have NO idea..

Because the situation isn't comparable. And again the numbers are skewed by the people arrested. In my experience a white person caught shoplifting has a greater chance of being able to talk their way out of being charged or arrested for the offense so in that case, it's not going to be reported or factored in the numbers.

The other thing is that you can't compare poor neighborhoods of blacks and hispanics to poor neighborhoods of whites, because they don't exist in the same context.

A poor white neighborhood generally exists as part of a town that shares the same condition overall, i.e. Adirondack mining towns that have fallen on hard times for instance You don't have the same problems because everyone is generally sharing the same level of misery and is more inclined to identify with each other.

Poor minority neighborhoods however exist mainly as exclusionary ghettos that border far more prosperous white neighborhoods. That's your situation in towns like Paterson and Camden. What you have in the latter case is the economic tension between bordering economies, fear from the white side, resentment and envy from the other. The situation can get even worse with gentrification as development removes minorities from an area such as the redevelopment of the Golden Triangle District in New Brunswick.

Because most (not all) racism has vanished... they still discriminate against the poor and probably always will. Profiling happens because there are certain things police think are good indicators of criminal behavior like dressing in a gangsta fashion or covering yourself in tattoos and driving a fancy car while looking like that is something I am sure they train officers to look for. While the man in a pricey car but wearing an expensive suit often gets a pass because he has the money to fight back legally even if he is speeding. They also don't hesitate to pull over all poor people if they are breaking the law because it's easy money since they probably can't or won't fight back legally. Kids are often unfairly targeted to for a similar reason. I lived near a school for years and the cops would set up at the end of that street and ticket all the kids as they sped past. Kids don't fight back legally either.

Racism hasn't vanished or even largely changed by a longshot. The only thing that has really changed is that it's no longer acceptable to be OVERTLY racist, or to be called a racist. You can't hang a sign in your shop that says. "Whites Only", or "Colored Seating Area In The Rear". What has happened that new social skills to deflect the charge have evolved along with the media coverage of such issues.

If Racism has "vanished". How do you explain the effectiveness of the "Willie Horton" campaign that ended Michael Dukakis' Presidential run and his career as a politician? And do you really think it's changed that much since then?

I would think that a good approach might be to create an Adaptable Somatic Casting feat that would allow a polymorphed spell caster to enact somatic motions with any shape that is not completely amorphous... i.e. a blob. Such a shape should have, either two hands or paws free, two wings and a tail, or be completely free to move a serpentine body. This feat would not address the need for material components, happily we already have that need covered with the Eschew Materials feat.

The prerequisite would be the ability to cast a spell of the polymorph school.

P.S. I know ordinary spell casting only requires one hand free, the requirement I'm making is for shapes that really don't have a "proper" hand, the way chimps, humanoids, and dragons do.

Not everybody is looking to do the same things you are. If somebody would rather outsource that work, they have the right to feel so. It's not some sort of law that you *have* to be interested in creating the aftermath stuff yourself.

The problem is.... value for money received. If I only finish a couple of AP's much of the book has no value to me. There's also no reason for the extra production cost of a hardback.

What would make MUCH more sense is a small soft cover supplement or better yet, downloadable PDF targeted for a single AP. That leaves room for a lot of material, and it would be content that's totally applicable to my use.

Then he demanded my other Pathfinder PDFs, he wanted me to at least print out the pages he needed for additional resources for his PFS characters. To get him off my back I sent Paizo another email to which they confirmed what I already knew.

Then he insisted I get Paizo to post that on their site because it wasn't clear. I didn't even bother asking Paizo to do that.

The guy kept calling it fair use, and I knew the entire time it was piracy.

However, at least I did learn some allowances that Paizo does give out but I haven't seen those posted on the boards so I won't say exactly what they are.

You're more tolerant than I am. My response would be when he started getting obnoxious and/or belligerent would have been. "Sod off".

The second response would have been to tell him to spend a couple of bucks and buy his own copy of the scenario.

would point out that this paladin had no idea what spell was being cast or how powerful said spell was. Also I disagree that only powerful spell casters casting spells are a clear threat; please tell that to the hordes of dead goblins and kobalds of gaming history. A spell being cast by an unknown caster for an unknown purpose, can be viewed as a threat, and rightfully so; what happens if that spell was a save-or-lose? As an example, if you came upon a market-place and someone is arguing and one goes for his component pouch and begins intoning a spell, what would you think that spell is, bless? If you had one standard action to do, would you just wait and see?

To some extent, the answer is YES. The job of a Paladin is not to smite the citizenry when he' not sure of the situation. And that means putting yourself in a bit of a risk. Because that's what you are. You are in TOWN dealing with citizenry. Which mean different rules apply. When you start viewing them in the exact same way as monsters in a dungeon, then you are a PROBLEM, no matter what your class is.

The Paladin in question would be headed for a fall in my game, not because of what he fights, but because he's clearly losing sight of what he's supposed to be fighting for.

I'm not sure of the purpose of this feat.

Yes, technically this allows a medium sized Human to ride a medium size wolf. In practise however, I think the only direction a medium size wolf will be able to go is splat down on the ground, when you figure in the load that the medium sized human And his armor, and gear, is going to add to the animal.

A Wolf's maximum heavy load is 225 lbs. that's the limit of it's HEAVY encumbrance.

Tho i think you should have used nonlethal damage to killer with your weapon. But i disagree with everyone. You know shes evil and doing wrong and when you confront her she starts casting. And from you knew she wasnt so harmless. I don't think you were in the wrong to strike her down. Just would have been smarter to use nonlethal.

You know she's not a powerful caster, because her crimes are petty. You also know that even a powerful caster that's alone, IS MEAT before a party.

But the most important problem is that the Paladin treated the encounter as if he was facing another monster in a dungeon, He saw her mainly as yet another "orc in a 10x10 room" to dispatch, instead of dealing with her as she was... a citizen in the midst of a civilized settlement.

I have zero problem with how you handled the situation; she was asked to surrender, and immediately started hostile actions: casting a spell. If a police officer tells someone that they are under arrest and they go for a gun, then the officer has justifiable cause for lethal defense. Sadly I feel that the people at the table and on the thread are busy moralizing over your decision when they weren't in your shoes; you made a choice to use lethal force to end the threat. Some people might feel that the situation caused for nonlethal force, but they weren't there; you were and felt lethal approach was best. Go back to the example I gave of the officer arresting someone who then tries to pull a gun; was it loaded? Could the officer have used less lethal means, such as mace? It could be viewed as commendable if such an officer were to risk his life to save this person who was pulling out a gun, but he wasn't forced to, he had all the justification needed to end the person.

On a side note, I have played many a paladin over the years; my friends say that's my iconic class. I would have likely done something similar. I always find it crazy when people try to shackle paladins by their code and atonements, when it was clear that it was strictly meant for chaotic and evil acts; a paladin falling would never happen in such a scenario. I believe that in this system, evil is very clear and means something: that it is a clear threat, even if it isn't entirely clear what threat. I would be entirely fine with a paladin making an enemy of any evil he encounters, although his code would be intact, his reputation may not be. The code was meant to keep the paladin from evil and corruption, not as red-tape to obstruct him from smiting the evil the Gods called him to smite, that is counter-intuitive.

A Paladin who can't moderate his responses between passivity and all out assault has quite frankly, a problem. Yes, she cast a spell. Spells by themselves ARE NOT that big a deal, unless they're coming from an extremely powerful caster, which she does not show herself to be. One lone frail woman faced with an entire equipped party... that does not give you license to go Judge Dredd on her.

Would I strip the OP's Paladin of his class for his actions? No... because I believe in a spectrum of responses. I might not even require an atonement, but I would surely send him a sign that he screwed up.

That's why I said that the Earth Queen was the first case of a major character uncontestably being killed on screen. There simply is no question that she is indeed deceased. Up till that point, every death mentioned in Avatar was essentially offscreen.

Combustion Man is pretty definite, there's a piece of prosthetic but no body was ever seen. But the Earth Queen's the first case where no chance of survival can be allowed for.

Arcane magic is more commonly associated with a high Intelligence score or a high Charisma score. Divine magic is more commonly associated with a high Wisdom score (which modifies Will saves, and is therefore all about the 'self confidence').

If there was anything to that notion, it would be divine casters who would be more likely to become egomaniacs and succumb to hubris, solipsism, etc.

That doesn't pass logic. to practise divine magic you have to entreat outside yourself. (for the purposes of this discussion let's leave godless clerics out of it) When every miracle you perform is something you ask Iomedae for, it's far from the same thing as chanting arcane formulae and commanding the universe to produce lightning from your fingertips.

There isn't a single spell that a cleric or druid performs that she does under her own power... It involves asking someone or Nature for something. Arcane magic is the complete opposite of that.

And that's as far as I will debate here, it's not the place, we should either post a thread or you can PM me.

There are PLENTY of religious arcane spellcasters. There's gods of magic, for crying out loud! There's nothing intrinsic about arcane magic that makes it counter to faith at all.

Perhaps maybe there is a perception that the practice of arcane magic is a gateway drug to hubris? Lords know that literature is full of wizards that eventually go crazy enough to see themselves as gods.

There's something to be said to that no? After all divine magic is about entreating a power to do something for you. Arcane magic is about ripping the essential fabric of the universe and forcing it to do your bidding. And arcane magic seems to require a certain level of self confidence Wouldn't that naturally tend to produce folks who tended enough towards the egomaniac side to have their religion tendencies decline?

Also standing up for your principles and beliefs doesn't give you a free pass to say "I was standing up for XXX when I punched the cop". You want to do criminal acts then you accept that you may be arrested and/or treated like a criminal. I don't agree with what is being protested due to the stories and "facts" that I have seen so to me they are just criminals being a menace to the law-abiding people of the neighborhood. The law-abiding people need to be safe and the police are trying to control lawlessness so the law-abiding people can feel safe and continue to be targeted with random traffic ticket taxations.

We've also had general Zhao killed in the first season of Avatar. But I meant more a main cast character. Tenzin has been in every season of Korra, and nearly every episode. If he died, it would be the first time such an important person died in the Avatar franchise.

We never actually knew what happened to Zhao until he was found in the Mist of Lost Souls. He may have been physically brought into the Spirit World and dumped in the mists. The Moon and Ocean Spirits did after all cross into the physical world despite the closing of the portals, the Ocean Spirit may have managed a trip back just for that purpose.

One thing to keep in mind that would very well indicate that Tenzin may have gone to meet his ancestors.

The Red Lotus is on a crusade to destroy all governments. Tenzin held a Council seat in Republic City, and was technically the head of the Air Nation, such as it was. That would seem to put him on their kill list.

While Tenzin is the eldest Airbender, Zaheer is aware enough of the Airbender Nation to know they don't operate on a government like the rest of the nations do. There doesn't seem to be a direct ruler of the Ari Nomads as much as there is a council of elder members who make decisions.

Besides, I kind of doubt Zaheer would want to kill Tenzin at all, considering Tenzin is also the single most experienced air bender an has a great deal amount to teach people, including himself.

Although, I think Tenzin dieing would make for great change to the Avatar franchise, because it would mean the first death of a truly 'main cast' character that didn't happen off screen (like with Aang as he grew older).

We did have the first direct unequivocal on screen death of a major antagonist when Zaheer asphyxiated the Earth Queen. Actually killing someone with Airbending is probably the biggest reversal of the gentle Airbender trope to date. Some folks may have wondered about an advanced form of airbending. Perhaps that was it.

Also remember that Zaheer's thing is Rebirth through Chaos and Destruction. Also keep in mind that the Air Nomad Guru he patterns himself against was kind of a black sheep among the Nomads. If he sees Tenzin as part of the static order that needs to be swept away, Zaheer is more than willing to play the part of the broom.
