Another problem with the "Eidolon Subtypes" is that they are not balanced against each other as well as they should be.

A good example is that the Azata starts with the 4-point Martial Weapons evolution right at start -- somewhat better then anyone else gets.

One interesting thing from this book that I haven't seen mentioned is that it gives an alternate means of assessing the relative power levels of the different races via a system that does not use the race point system from the Advanced Race Guide. The ratings in this book are as follows:

Standard (no asterisks): Dwarf, Elf, Gnome, Half-Elf, Half-Orc, Halfling, Human, Catfolk, Changeling, Dhampir, Gillman, Goblin, Grippli, Ifrit, Kitsune, Kobold, Nagaji, Oread, Ratfolk, Samsaran, Sylph, Tengu, Triaxian, Undine, Vanara, Wayang.

Advanced (one asterisk): Aasimar, Drow, Duergar, Elf (Aquatic), Fetchling, Goblin (Monkey), Hobgoblin, Lashunta, Orc, Skinwalker, Suli, Tiefling, Vishkanya.

Monstrous (two asterisks): Android, Gathlain, Ghoran, Kasatha, Merfolk, Strix, Svirfneblin, Syrinx, Trox, Wyrwood, Wyvaran.

Hobgoblin being rated as "Advanced" was a surprise. They are not that powerful.

Counterwise: Goblins are rated as "Standard" despite having the better skill bonuses and an amazing dexterity score.

I hadn't considered the possibility that Belkar might be the one killing delaying the demigod priests. I assumed it would be the guy Durkula vamped up earlier, to make sure only those who would support Hel's agenda would be left.

But what if it is Belkar, and the one demigod priest who comes in to settle the tie is Elan, high priest of Banjo? Or possibly the orc priest from the tribe that he converted to worshiping the puppet pantheon.

This whole huge fight, and Roy could lose (probably without dying), but the Order still saves the world!

People are forgetting that the High Priest of the Dark One is also in play.

Where is Xykon, b.t.w.?

Do they describe the cultures of the humans outside their home regions? For example, how Taldans outside Taldor differ from their cousins, Chelaxians outside of Cheliax , Varisians in Ustalav(who are very much more settled than the Varisians in Varisia), etc?

They touch upon it, but not in great detail.

There is also no guidance for humans of two (or more) ethnicities - such as the child of a Garundi father and Cheliaxian mother.

I'm thinking that Durkula grapples and fangs Roy, but then Roy reverses the grapple and carries him outside the chamber just in time for the right side to win the vote. Then Belkar shows up and TWEPs Durkula. Maybe.

So what I'm wondering is if the Spellspinter Maneuver can wreck already cast spells like Spell Sunder does in pathfinder. Because Durkula just dropped the staff, and if Roy can dispel the protective penumbra, then Durkula might go poof. There is a lot of sunlight coming in through the windows.

That may be what is about to happen.

Then Hel will be in a pickle.

He should sunder the unholy symbol of Hel. IIRC, no Divine Focus, not that many Cleric spells available.

That said, seeing the usual caster/martial disparity at such high levels and adding the Vampire template, it is amazing that Roy is still standing.

It's still early in the combat. And remember, that Durkon is still maintaining the summon proxy spell.

How far have you gotten with this?

(late to the party)

Try these
Kush = Sargavia
The Black Kingdoms = The Mwangi Expanse

Apis Consortium = use an Argosian merchant consortium
The Red Mantis = Agents of Thoth-Amon*
The Pathfinder Society = Ignore this faction (There are very few non-evil groups in Hyboria)
The Shackles Pirates = Agents of Thutothmes*
The Sargavian Government = The Kushite/Stygian government(s)

As I understand it, the vanity followers are not able to be targeted and are considered not in the area when combat happens.

This works for both players and GMs. So a player can't use a vanity follower to hold things or provide any combat effect at all. And as far as the NPCs that your GM controls the vanity follower doesn't exist.

So can the OP appeal the GM's ruling? (If so, to who?)

Yes. Only one adventure leaves the city, Mother of Flies, but even then it doesn't go beyond the "Greater Westcrown" environs.

Casts raise thread.

I'll be running Iron Gods in the near future, and one of my players was interested in playing an engineer-type class. Since the Technology Guide has come out in the 5 years since this thread was made, I've jury-rigged my own version of the engineer, using hida_jiremi's version as a starting point. This version is much more sci-fi than steampunk. I've also replaced the death ray ability with some gunslinger stuff, since the character will be able to find/build advanced weaponry in this adventure path.

The Engineer (Alchemist Archetype)

Not all alchemists are masters of chemistry and biology. Some prefer to focus their mad talents on the mysteries of mechanical engineering.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Engineers gain proficiency in firearms, as well as advanced technology firearms.

Class Skills: An engineer adds Knowledge (engineering) to his list of class skills and removes Knowledge (nature) and Use Magic Device from his list of class skills.

Technologist: An engineer gains Technologist as a bonus feat. This replaces Brew Potion.

Engineering (Su): Engineers are not only masters of creating mundane machines such as repeating crossbows, clockwork toys, and mechanical traps, but also of fashioning non-magical devices that can store spell effects. An engineer prepares devices instead of the alchemist's extracts by building small, single-use devices instead of the alchemist's usual method of drinking a vial of liquid. Unlike extracts, devices are not bound to the creator and can be used by anyone. Devices behave like spells, but their effects are unaffected by effects like dispel magic. An engineer's devices otherwise function identically to an alchemist's extracts.
Creating devices consumes raw materials, but the cost of these materials is insignificant—comparable to the valueless material components of most spells. An engineer can easily replenish his materials through scavenging and by...

Since Packing Heat replaces the Bomb ability, I might suggest allowing the Engineer to gain a "Grit" deed when a normal Alchemist's bomb damage would increase, rather then making the Engineer to spend precious Discoveries on these.

I think the clothes she wears suit her just fine. And really, if people want to draw her in less, they probably will do so.

Privately owned forum, you don't have the freedom to express yourself in a way that Paizo's moderators disagree with. And thank god for that.

Actually, that is mildly unfair to the Paizo moderators.

I am currently playing a Level 4 Cleric of Sarenrae who is half Gnoll & Human

I have decided for my character that after a in party death from which we have sorted out a raise I am feeling I have let this person & group down a bit & I feel my character would need to do something to atone or punish himself as the person who died was a fellow follower of Sarenrae I felt like a bit of a letdown & I am thinking my god may be a bit disapointed with me in this regard

so my question is how can I without knackering my character up can I punish myself or atone for that incident I feel that I want to do this but don't know how or where to start any suggestions pn how to RP this ?

i have just been told by GM that my god wouldnt care but if character felt different he could try & make up for it so any suggestion on that instead ?

From Inner Sea Gods, p. 136.

"Priests view casual cruelty or thoughtlessness as genuinely harmful, and if they accidentally engage in one of these behaviors themselves, they seek out the wronged person and attempt to obtain his forgiveness. They understand that goodness takes practice, and regular daily acts of kindness and virtue aid one in building the moral strength to do what is right when one’s goodness is challenged in more serious ways."

So, "in character", talk to the person who died. Discuss with them how you feel you failed them, and ask them what you need to do in atonement. As long as their requirement is not evil or immoral, you need to then do it.

Loki was always "The Trickster" god, he is a d6 Rogue not d10 Warrior. He was considered a weakling (physically speaking) even compared to run of the mil Asgardians.

His magical powers though have been toned down quite a notch in the movies. He cant fly, teleport, or cast offensive spells for example.

Loki is weaker compared to asgardians like Thor, but as shown in the first Avenger Movie, he is much stronger and durable compared to someone like Captain America. And as shown in Agents, a "normal" Asgardian can not be stopped by mundane weapons. Someone like Loki, the Warriors three or Sif would need really heavy weapons to be stopped.

I was just comparing the Asgardian gods above. Not other super powered Marvel personas.

Loki, while an "Asgardian wimp" was physically stronger than Spiderman, The Beast, The Red Skull, Captain America or Dr. Doom, capable lifting or pressing 25 TONS according to the Marvel Universe.

I get the impression that the Movie Loki is a much better fighter then his comic book counterpart.
