I simply don't see how you could accomplish that in one volume, save by doing a very superficial and generally lousy job.

AP's are not small affairs and I really doubt that 12 pages for each AP is going to do nearly enough to get the job done proper.

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.

Flash bangs tear gas, and 200 police pointing machine guns at people to arrest 14 people remaining.

Freaking NUTS.

They're going balistic (literally) because of thrown water bottles. I've had to put up with that without reacting, with no helmet, just to move snakes out a crowded area. An APC, full on body armor, bullet proof vests and they're wetting themselves over Avion.

I suspect the Molotov cocktails and gunfire had more to do with the stun grenades and tear gas than the water bottles, but nice attempt at making the cops seem worse than they are.

And just how nice do you think things are? You must be wearing some serious blinders not to recognise this as merely the eruption of a long standing problem in this town, and countless others like it.

Fact of the matter is there should be a distinction between police operations and military. The purpose of the military is wholesale killing when it's needed. That's why you equip them in faceless body armor, they're not supposed to identify with the people they are engaging.

Police on the other hand ARE supposed to be part of the community they are protecting. That's why police uniforms include bared faces, and handguns worn holstered. Not long barrel assault weapons pointed forward wearing stormtrooper gear. The problem is that Fergueson and many other towns like this where the makeup of the force is not representative of the community it serves is that it fosters the "Us Vs. Them" mentality that's clearly seen here. The cops see the public as the enemy, and the public sees the cops as faceless soldiers looking for a reason to put them down.

This is a problem that's decades in the making, made worse by polticians like Reagan who actively worked to undo a lot of social progress. There's no quick walk out of the woods for this one. But that doesn't mean we give up on taking those first steps.

I'll reiterate that I think that Zaheer is smart enough to know that if he kills Tenzin, he loses all hope of ever bringing Korra over to his side.

So, almost certainly a cliffhanger.

Given that Zaheer is more than willing to condemm even his own allies to fates worse than death, this might well Tenzin's swan song. Fact is, there are other people to use as leverage over Korra even if he does kill Tenzin... such as all the other people she cares about. Killing Tenzin may well be the way he decides to show Korra that he does have the resolve to follow up his threats.

It's definitely a cliffhanger, but remember, one thing that anime is fond of... is the heroic sacrifice.... And characters DO die in this show, and Jinora is pretty much set up to be Tenzin's successor. Zaheer is definitely a worthy successor to Ozai in the Ruthless Big Bad department.

I'm not saying that Tenzin is definitely on the deceased list, just pointing out that there are valid rationalizations for killing him off at this time.

On the bright side... Zuko's reaction to Korra meeting Iroh in the Spirit World.... priceless.

Looking at the recently updated PRD, I'm seeing some things that I thought Paizo has said they weren't planning to do with Pathfinder - Haven't they said they weren't interested in doing cyberpunk or Sci Fi? I'm pretty sure I've seen that in the annual contest rules or something...Our gamemasters don't even want to include the psionics rules, and now we're going to wind up with laser rifles in the standard Pathfinder rules?

orcs VS Space marines?

Orc Space marines?

Sounds a bit too much like Ralph Bakshi's "Wizards" to me...

Basically what Paizo said was the following.

1. They're not going to turn the game into a primarily sci fi venue.

2. They are planning something that's essentially Barrier Peaks on Steroids. and Numeria is the setting for Barrier Peaks writ large. The tech introduced has self-limiting factors that ensure the planet is not going to be overrun by legions of Cybermen.

Some people really want to use their deity's favored weapon. I'm sure there are plenty of Desnans who would love to play with Starknives but still have bigger damage dice, for example.

The fact remains that you don't need to use the Sacred Weapon damage if you don't want to, so there's nothing stopping you from using a Greatsword and continuing to do 2d6 every swing.

More power to them of course, yet it feels really narrow in scope if that is what the designers were aiming for. As for your second point, yes you can focus on a 2 handed sword but then sacred weapon does exactly nothing for you up to level 4 when the other powers kick in. Feels like a waste of an ability. I understand it was nerfed from playtest, maybe it was nerfed too much?

The purpose of the mechanic is so that you can have a WarPriest of Pharasma who can stay in theme and not suck. Yes I know it does nothing for you who picked an optimized approach and used a great sword. Other folks need to be served as well.

It is entirely appropriate and thematic for Asmodeus to seem sympathetic.
Have to agree, Asmodeus is definitely into Pragmatic Evil. If running orphanages and feeding the poor helps him advance his evil agenda (presumably by winning converts), then that's what he'll do it.

Actually if you want examples on how orphanages would be run by Asmodeus, Charles Dickens will supply several. That and at least one episode of Dr. Who. Historically orphanages weren't always run people you'd term as "good". Many of them were sources of child labor.

That seems to be the general consensus from what I can tell, (I agree).

When you have a range of highly discordant opinions, you don't have a consensus. What you are focusing on are the vocal disappointments from folks who found their DPR Champion had been brought back down in line.

The class succeeds in what it's meant to do... be a midway fighter/cleric mashup. When I played the play test version of the character, I never realized that the Sacred Weapon gave full BAB advancement, so I've already had practise playing the character this way through several PFS scenarios. Did I dominate play? No... but I pulled my weight, and that is my definition of viable.

So... What's the best method of recharging the silver disks out of Numeria? Bearin mind hey only weigh 1lb each and the charge is 10 hours, the generator need not be at hand or portable.

That's the beauty of it. There really isn't any, which is why Golarion is not going to be overrun by technological armies in the next year.

Paizo took their inspiration in this also from "Journey To the Barrier Peaks". You could bring home a lot of toys from the spaceship in that module, but you'd run out of charges in short order and be left with some exotic paperweights.

Basically, being afraid of losing something should never be a consideration when choosing a class to play. If a GM wants to screw you over, they will, regardless what class you are playing.
In your opinion, what is the point of having the mechanic of a spell book if it can't ever be a vulnerability/limitation?

Spellbooks should definitely be a liability for the careless. But a GM goes too far when his NPCs are employing suicidal tactics just to dick over the wizard player.

Spellbooks are more than just resources and mechanics.... they can be the basis of flavor, an NPC's spell book may contain more than just lists of spells... Look at the pre-generated spell books in Ultimate Magic for examples of what I'm talking about.

Just even how they're made will tell you volumnes about the author. Are the pages thin mithril leaves with elven script? Or are the spells written in blood in parchment made from Human skin? Are they neatly organized, locked iron bound volumnes? or loose sheets strap bound in a folio?

RAW is something that rules lawyers use to needlessly extend debate.

One person will say that RAW doesn't say arcane casters only. Another will say that it doesn't say ALL casters.

My opinion is that the listed Pre-requisite IS the RAW answer. You can be a 20th level cleric and you still won't qualify for the feat. You need to be an arcane caster or equivalent to take the feat so it follows by logic that only arcane casting contributes to effective caster level.

I don't quite understand. I always thought that the purpose of the masterpiece was simply to help perpetuate a bluff that you had knowledge, not to give you the knowledge itself. Did the devs actually come out and say that it gives you real knowledge? If so, than this creation was a mistake that's being rectified at least for PFS.

Maybe that's the case, in the games that you play in or run, but casters in my games don't get to dictate answers to me when questions come up. Anyone who puts up RAW arguments for Sno-Cone wish machines or other such caster nonsense only gets those to fly with the fiat of a ridiculously accommodating GM.

If a wizard chooses to take Arcane Bond with a ring but does not enchant it, does wearing the ring use up the item slot?

I believe the answer is no, just checking if I've missed anything.

Is there anything that requires that the arcane bonded ring be worn on a finger?

Core Rule Book, pg 78 wrote:
If the object is an amulet or ring, it must be worn to have effect, while staves, wands, and weapons must be held in one hand.
Examples of other locations rings can be worn include in ears, nose, on toes, and in the hair to hold the pony-tail in place. Some wizards might not want their bonded items in the obvious location.

Yes. It's still a magicked ring even if the magic is nothing more than give you a free spell per day, and be a focus for your magic.

You can wear it on your toe, or on your ear, but it still takes up one of your ring slots.

I'm assuming that Triaxians, Lashunta and Kasatha from People of the Stars are also not legal for play, and that it's not just Androids. They are not called out as legal, but only the Android is explicitly called out as not legal. The standard language used in the additional resources is that if something is not listed, than it is not legal, but calling out the Androids and leaving the rest unmentioned feels confusing, especially when the Android would be banned by omission if there was no text included on the races in this book. I feel like this would be better off stated as either "None of the races in this book are legal for play" or clearly specifying if any of them are legal.

Perhaps I'm reading too far into it, but I feel like there's a point to be made here.

So, RAW, traits you pick must be from different categories. As in, no two Campaign traits, or no two Basic (Magic) traits, no two Race traits, and so on.

This probably doesn't come up much if you get two traits and are doing an AP where one of them has to be a Campaign trait. But when you throw in that some games give you the Campaign trait for free, plus you can take Drawbacks and the Additional Traits feat, sometimes you can have four, even five traits. So then it might become more likely that your trait categories might clash.

1) Do people generally really keep track of this?

2) Is it gamebreaking big if you don't?

I'm going to go with Wraith on both of these and I have an additional thing on no 2.

People ask that question all the time. The thing is when you allow one breach, and then another, when does it stop?

It's also the wrong question... the real one should be; Is the game improved by breaking the rule so a player can have an exploit? In most cases the answer is no. The game is balanced about making choices that give one option over the expense of others.

Messageboard theorycrafting isn't representative of actual play styles. The fact of the matter is that having judged a lot of PFS players, I don't run into as many carbon copies of the Win Build of the Month that you might think. My Magus doesn't wield a scimitar, and my Bard is straight single class. and I've yet to see ANYONE play even one level of Wood Mystery Oracle.

It's in the genes! Or something like that. You know, with the x and y chromosome and stuff like that.
Not really, these days gender identity is often not tied to anything physical

The correct term is that gender identity may not be tied to anything OBVIOUS. There are a lot of physical factors that define gender and sexual identity, besides the exterior packaging. For one thing you can have someone that showes an exterior female physiology yet the person is carrying an X/Y chromsome set. and that's just the tip of the iceberg as to how complex it can get.

It matters Ceres because our society gets hung up on these things. To not address the is to either sweep someone's identity under the rug, or condone their marginalisation.
