I am intrigued. James, what are you alluding to?
Nothing, other than the fact that traditionally, authors include Aklo as one of those languages that has power of a destructive or forbidden nature.

Kind of like what happens when Gandalf starts speaking the Dark Tongue of Mordor at the White Council?

I'm playing a Wonder Woman build and I have of course been using the lasso. I recently found the strangler feat in the monster codex, and that' it is legal in society play! My confusion is from the mention of beating someones combat manuvers defense by five or more. My understanding of how the lasso works is I hit the targets touch armour class and they gain the entangled condition. When would ever I be rolling against them to bring cmd into the fray? You can; cut out ac2 10hp, dc15 escape artist, dc23 str check. As listed in the item description.

Someone who puts the word "strangler" in with a Wonder Woman concept kind of misses the point... and creeps me out.

Actually a good deal of our modern economy is based on the manipulation of money and values itself.

The productivity of the average American worker has been shooting up like an Apollo rocket. What is happening in recent decades is that very little of that increase is being reflected in wages which have remained stagnant since the 70's when adjusted for inflation. Instead the bulk of that increase has been going to CEO salaries and stockholders.

All of this oil blather is really nothing but distraction from this root cause.

I think anyone playing a paladin should read the Cold fire trilogy to see how a paladin can be in the same party as an evil character.

Perhaps that advisory should go to the player of the evil character as well. It really shouldn't be up to the paladin player to do all the heavy lifting of adaptation.

i need stats for asmodeus is there a actual stat block for him? if not what would it potentially look like?

Paizo writers do not want PCs to be able to participate in standard high fantasy plots, because that might actually involve changing the status quo and making the adventure meaningful, and we cannot have that. So anyone with actual importance to the multiverse gets no stats, and anyone with token importance gets stats clearly telling that the writers do not want you to be able to win.

However, you can use the 3.5 stats for his aspect from the Fiendish Codex II. He's CR 27, and that is theoretically just about right for a greater god - the real deal, not an aspect, of course - almost out of reach of max level PCs, but defeatable if he ever leaves himself open.

Of course, in practice CRs mean next to nothing past level 12-15 and you'll need to seriously tinker with his spell list to avoid him being effectively taken out for good by a Dazing Chain Lightning or something on the first round. Possibly give some Mythic Powers to compensate for overall powerlevel growth in Pathfinder.

So what you're basically saying that adventures aren't meaningful unless you're duking it out with the gods mano a mano? It's really a shame that you have such a limited viewpoint.

Duking out with a god is hardly a "standard high fantasy" plot. In Golarion, Gods aren't just some high powered NPC to be taken out by the next Johnny Lucky, they embody essential parts of the universe itself. The ground literally does tremble at their approach, which is why they never intervene personally. (and those that do typically pay a heavy price for it, such as the gods of Androffa, or the two that attempted to block Earthfall)

Sometimes you're just not interested in a game about the last catfolk. Maybe somebody else can run that game.

I never understood this as a GM. Why is the campaign that I want to run more important than the campaign that my players want to play in?

Because it's akin to the same kind of reasons players play. Players want to create their own characters, and DMs want to build their own worlds. Ususally both can accomodate each others desires quite nicely..... unless they come to these messageboards first.

LazarX on this very thread. So, one person at least.

No... I don't say that. And I didn't say that. What I tell my players is that I"m thinking of running a this and that type of campaign and these are the things I'll incorporate. Believe it or not, subsequent conversation on the topic generally bears a lot of resemblance to adults talking politely and intelligently to each other. Probably because no one in our group subscribes to the belief that GMs and Players must live in an atmosphere of perpetual animosity.

What I have said is that the DM does have a unalienable right to set the character of his game world which is defined more by what's not included than by what is. And some folks just get all bent out of shape by that assumption.

One question at the forefront of my mind when creating any new Pathfinder character is: "Why is this creature of Golarion a member of the Society?" Certain classes and archetypes are easier to explain than others. Take a rogue or wizard, for example. Both have class features and interests that are well suited for travel and discovery in civilized and uncivilized areas. Other classes, such as barbarian, druid, samurai, and warpriest present a challenge for my imagination. Why would the uncivilized or religious zealots want to join an eclectic band of adventurers pursuing a wide variety of objectives on a global scale?

I'd like to stir the pot and challenge my perceptions. Why is your class a Pathfinder agent?

The proper question is why is my character a Pathfinder? The answer to that question is that my character has dimension beyond his or her class, and in that area, is the answer to be found.

So basically you're giving up spell combat in order to juggle?

You DO NOT have a hand free as that hand has to remain free for your entire turn. Your PFS GM may be happy in letting you break the rules, but it's still wrong, and a crappy attitude for signing on to a network campaign.

Are you sure the enhancement bonus is a "enhancement bonus to the armor bonus" and not an "enhancement bonus to the armor class" ?

The "armor bonus to armor class" might not stack with others, but that shouldn't mean the "enhancement bonus to armor class" doesn't stack with it, it's a different bonus.

I mean if it's actually a "enhancement bonus to armor bonus", then there's no question that it doesn't work, I just can't find that specified anywhere.

Here we go again.

Enhancement's to an item's armor bonus are not counted separately. They are figured into the items TOTAL armor bonus for stacking purposes.

The Haramaki in question has ONE armor bonus of +4. not separate bonuses of +1 and +3.

Personally, I kind of didn't understand why my bard was complaining. As a GM, it's not my fault if your character is useless, that's your job, and I try to make my games as realistic as possible. I've been using crummy tactics for the most part, but when I do use ambush tactics and play the enemies like they should be played, the enemies just wreck the party.

Erick Wujick once said in Amber Diceless. "If your players all bid on Warfare, don't base your campaign on Psyche."

It very much IS your fault as a GM. The realism argument goes out the door with the first magic spell. As a GM you should be looking at the characters the players create, their strengths and weaknesses, and you should be setting up opportunities for each character to have their moment. If you're using a published module, alter it. If you're using your own material... change it.

If the players don't make use of the opportunities you give them, than it's on them. If they can't evolve beyond the zerg-rush mentality, there's not much you can do for them.

When a player asks why can't I do X both of those work well (Though the not familiar with it they might argue a bit about)

The "I don't want it" with no reasoning probably isn't going to be received by anyone well. Why not? Cause. Because why? Just cause. And now you have a frustrated player and probably a frustrated GM too.

You're free to do and allow what you want, but not having a reason for banning something means you have at least as good of reasons for allowing it instead. So why not allow it?

Because if you have equal reasons to either simplify or complicate your game, simplifying it is always the better option.

No GM is obligated to allow anything. GM's should, however, accept that they ought to allow everything they don't have a good reason for banning.

As far as asking beyond the first, "No," it depends whether it was "No, because [insert rational reason here]" as opposed to "No." In the latter case, "Why not?" is a very acceptable question that the GM should have an answer to:...

I categorically disagree with the first statement. As far as I'm concerned, "It doesn't fit, or I'm not familliar with that material are both good reasons, as well as "I don't wish to include it."

Whether you want to use the word or not, your statement has been that by default, GM's are obligated to use everything unless they justify an exclusion.

I personally think, though, that GM's should voluntarily start with the default as "all Paizo material is allowed" and then only disallow material if they have a real problem with it. If someone wants to use 3rd party material, I think a GM should at least look it over before saying no, but it shouldn't have the same presumption.

With that logic, you're including both Mythic Adventures, and the Occult Playtest, which aren't necessarily items that should be considered go to by default.

I don't think that a GM should be obligated to start out with any material they are not comfortable with. What the GM should do is state what materials he or she is going to support. Players can surredly ask about additional items, but should not push past the first "No."

Yes, but to use that ancedote to claim that conditions haven't changed significantly from the 1840's would be absurd to the extreme. Slavery is not presently a sanctioned activity in this country that can be applied to anyone because of the color of their skin. Where it does happen, it is an illegal underground occurrence. Or it's virtual slavery such as the cases of certain foreign born housekeepers in cities like New York.

Seriously though, this seems like a silly question...

Call it the same action as drinking a potion and move on.

Could you carry one in your mouth? Sure, why not - just no talking during combat. I'd allow that. More than one? Maybe, but I'd start to call that cheese and if a player insisted, I'd rule he might accidentally swallow more than he intended, roll 1d4 berries swallowed each time he tries to swallow one - if I allow it all. Of course, enemies will do it too...

Are you full after eating one? Of course not. It doesn't expand in your stomach; it merely nourishes you like a full meal. There is still plenty of room in your belly for more goodberries. The spell itself sets the limit of how many times per day you can receive this benefit. Now, is it possible that frequently consuming 8 days worth of nourishment every day might make you fat...

Again, we both know I'm not talking about speculative investment or 'flipping' AP's as a collector... I'm talking about modules and adventure paths that were written, balanced against what options there were in the game at the time they were written becoming gradually more obsolete as those options gets swallowed by a host of new ones the original adventure could never have taken into account.

So that means you need to stretch your skills as a GM. You think your group is stomping through an AP? Change it! or introduce some new complications. That's what my spouse is doing with Wrath of the Righteous and we all have a better gam from it.

Or, god forbid, check out these awesome boards a few times a day!

There's a lot of hyperbole associated with Net Neutrality.

The end of Net Neutrality does not mean that you lose the Internet, nor the ability to access the Paizo message boards.

The folks who have the real stake in this are the competing media providers, such as Netflix, and Huluu, Amazon, Twitter, and Google, which business models depend on having high speed access to it's customers. An example recently was Comcast successfully extorting higher fees from Netflix to have it's reception not throttled down.

I'm a strong believer in Net Neutrality because I do think that with the marriage of internet providers and cable companies such as Verizon and Comcast, means competition in media sources is needed that much more.

The end-game means Paizo goes out of business, and Pathfinder closes up shop. Publishing companies make money by publishing new material. Asking Paizo to close up their shop isn't going to get very far.

You always have the choice of stop buying supplements. If you're playing PFS, you know have the choice of the Core only Campaign.
