Yes. There is a D&D 5E and Pathfinder edition war now.

True. And if it was needed, I sure it would have made itself apparent by now.

Question: Should "No Edition Wars Posting" be added to the community Guidelines?

Technically, it is a form a "Baiting" but should it be spelled out more clearly?

Yeah, I haven't seen anything about Gnolls in Numeria, but given the desert climate and it's proximity to the Worldwound, I think it's plausible that a Gnoll tribe may have migrated north.
It's been a while since I GMed anything in Numeria, so correct me if I'm wrong, but if I remember correctly Numeria is far from being a dessert. It's so far up north that it should be more vast plains and even Tundra.

It's not that far north. It would be closer in climate to "southern" Canada.

It isn't desert so much as wasteland. A lot of Numeria is still blighted by the toxic waste from the Rain of Stars even after thousands of years.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

I don't believe that there are any Gnoll tribes active in Numeria.

However, I don't think any of the existing tribe would be open to adopting a Gnoll member.

In any event, the Numerian tribes don't play nearly as much of a role in the AP as one might expect (they are a factor in Book 5, but even there they are a minor one).

I want to see a rogue planet, ruled by an evil emperor, but balkanized into a dozen or so kingdoms. Said rogue planet is being steered into the Golarion system, causing unprecedented quakes and tidal events.

A heroic scientist (a PC) gathers a small group of heroes (the other PCs) to go to this planet and stop it.

Of course, with the way that Paizo has priced technological items, this puts most gear out of reach.

That is untrue. The actual WBL for a 7th level character is 23,500 gp.
IIRC, PCs shouldn't usually have more than 1/4 of their wealth tied up in a single item. That is probably where the 5875gp figure is coming from.

It is where I got the number 23,500/4 = 5,875.

How did you determine the price for this?
Ad Hoc. A mithril full plate weights half as much, and gives a big bunch of bonuses (extra DEX, lower ACP). This is a weaker effect, should probably be cheaper. In fact, it's a bit overpriced for what it is, but the cost of the material is important too (an armor made of gold is expensive even if it sucks)

I would suggest that you give the armor the full benefits of Mithral (even if you don't call it that). This would represent the armor's servo motors "helping" the character, even before they are fully repaired and powered, or it could be that the armor's joints are just manufactured to a high degree of precision.

Also, technological gold armor would not suck.

Absolutely a blast to play.

Which masterpiece is this? Where's it from? :D

And which Outsider type?

For an outsider, I would suggest a Peri-Blooded Aasimar (Blood of Angels, p. 23), maybe swapping out the spell like ability for something more appropriate.

A Samsaran would also work, but it has the wrong "look and feel" for a Gallifreyan. It's "Past Lives" could represent previous regenerations.

The Masterpiece you are looking for (The Requiem of the Fallen Priest-King) is found on page 23 of Ultimate Magic.

Hello!

One of my characters is a gun Tank. He wants to be a space marine/SPARTAN soldier /N7 armor guy, which I think it's cool and fits with the game.

Two problems:
The real power suit armor is an artifact, and you use them when the campaign is going to end, and the rest of scifi armors suck. Spacesuit is unwieldly, with huge ACP, low AC and no DEX.HEV suit is the same. Smart armor is just a worse adamantine fullplate which chews charges for breakfast.

A lot of the "sci-fi" gear is just not worth it.

Here is what I think it could be nice:

gustavo iglesias wrote:
Probably should drop a few of those. Dunno which. Also, maybe someone has a good idea for some other minor magic items to be placed, or a different approach.

Another problem with your build is that you don't normally just add magic items together. Since they would all be sharing the "Armor" slot, these should all be treated as "pluses" to the base armor or as additional enchantments per PF Core, page 549.

Currently, there are only two APs that directly support having a PC be a member of the Pathfinder Society (Legacy of Fire and Council of Thieves).

How would one go about creating one for a different AP - In my case, Skull & Shackles. I'm looking for something I can pitch to my GM.

Obviously, the "Ancient Explorer" trait, but what else would help?

We haven't created characters yet.

But you do have a point, as this would help connect them to the people of Torch most relevant to them.

Though I still love, and plan to use Mathmuse's idea about The Tarnished Halls.

On the other hand, if the heroes are sent to meet Blood Gar tribesmen to guide them to The Tarnished Halls (it moves, so visitors need guides), the Blood Gars could tell them about the crash site. They don't want a start a feud with the other tribe that guards the crash site, but they suggest that the party could raid the site without risking a feud. Maybe the Blood Gars already sent a non-Kellid friend to raid it and they want the party to rescue him. It is fun to have a good excuse why the higher-level NPCs don't get involved.

So, the ambush would be the Kellids trying to "betray" the party? Or remove the ambush and have something stranger at the escape pod site.

I downloaded the free Silverhex Chronicles, because it had one mission in Numeria. To quote, "Pathfinder Quests: Silverhex Chronicles is a series of [six] Pathfinder Quests designed for 1st-level characters. These Quests are designed for play in the Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign, but can easily be adapted for use with any world." That seems a lot like the In Service to Lore quests you mentioned.

That Numerian mission, Crash, on pages 16-19, takes place near the Seven Tears River halfway between Torch and Hajoth Hakados. A Pathfinder Society Lodge is also in Hajoth Hakados.

Also on the Seven Tears River is The Tarnished Halls, a mobile black market for technology. The Tarnished Halls are too well-defended for 1st-level characters to challenge, but the criminal element that a black market attracts could provide a suitable challenge. Simply picking up a package from there could be an appropriate mission. The players in my campaign went to The Tarnished Halls last week and I will post details and NPC stats on this forum in a week or two.

As for Torch itself, Khonnir Baine would be unavailable during his fifth expedition and he would be the best person to give quests. The town council would be preoccupied with the extinguished torch and its effect on commerce. Maybe if Khonnir Baine or a council member sent the party on a quest before the torch went out, the quest could take them far enough out of town that Khonnir couldn't wait for them to return before he starts the expeditions. Khonnir seemed slow about organizing the third expedition and the fifth expedition, hence the other three expeditions rushed ahead of him, so perhaps he was hoping that the party would return in time.

Having downloaded it, you are absolutely right!

Perhaps if an important supply (or parts) were running low in the Crowfeather Palice? This would introduce them to Joram Kyte and Iven Lesky (and rumors 3 [headaches], 18 [ratfolk bandits], & possibly 8 [gremlins]).

The heroes could travel there, encounter the crash site & the Kellid raiders (probably Blood Gars given the location), continue to The Tarnished Halls to pick up the package, and then return to Torch.

That would, of course only be their first task. :)

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

I am looking for ideas for a pre-quest for Iron Gods. It would start approximately Day -2 of the official start of the AP, during Khonnir Baine's fifth expedition.

I am looking to write someting in the spirit of Pathfinder Society Scenario Intro 1: First Steps—Part I: In Service to Lore. For those not familiar with that scenario, the heroes go to different NPCs (They are some of the Faction leaders in the society, and perform (adventuring) tasks for them). Each task is roughly equivalent to an encounter of some kind (combat, puzzles, or investigation).

My goal for this pre-adventure are:

  • Allow the Players to "shake down" their characters.
  • Allow the Players to become familiar with the other heroes in the party.
  • Introduce the heroes to some of the important NPCs of Torch.
  • Feed the players some of the rumors (page 10 of Fires of Creation) in an organic manner.

    Any ideas you can suggest, would be helpful. :)

    I'm pretty new to the whole quest design thing and thought I would get some suggestions for some easy level 5ish side quests for them to do.

    You don't have to do any quest design for an adventure path. The adventure path contains enough challenges to level up the party at an appropriate rate using the medium character advancement rate.

    Side quests still could come up naturally, as the PCs might want to investigate questions not resolved in the modules. But those are difficult to anticipate in advance.

    "Monistary" doesn't necessarily mean "Martial Arts" monks.

    Actually, what is your goal as a GM with this side quest?

  • If the monks are intended as allies: Are you opening up early access to bionics? (Reasonable, and the monks would have the feats and skills to install the enhancements.)
  • Are they intended as adversaries? If so, why? Mathmuse is correct, the AP does have enough Experience Points for leveling at the desired rate.
