If that is what this is about then there is no real need to worry, the Hobby Lobby decision ONLY applied to closely held companies NOT big corporations. So no McDonald's in Indiana is going to refuse to serve gays, even if the Ma and Pa Deli next door does refuse them.

Also none of the big hospitals are closely held companies with religious leanings either so no worries over health care either.

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not. :(

I'm not too fond of how the suddenly have Simmons being so anti-mutant/Inhuman. If there would have been some kind of buildup or a episode where it's revealed that she secretly hates people with superpowers. One bad thing happens and because it's a fellow teammate that dies all of sudden she wants to kill those that are different for their own good. The character also comes across as a hypocrite. If it was a total stranger instead of Skye chances are good that he or she would be dead. Since it's a close friend and teammate it's not the same.

Hypocrisy is a very human emotional reaction to shock.

So, while I am not fond of the direction they are taking the character, her actions are entirely realistic.

It will most likely get your posts deleted or this thread locked. A significant number of members of our staff and our community are LGBT, and comparing them to people who take advantage of children isn't acceptable behavior on these forums.

I hadn't decided that yet. This was part of the reason I started this thread.

If you're looking for something elf-like/Calistria-like that's paladin friendly, Arshea and Lymnieris cover the free-love aspect* minus all the negative baggage while Ragathiel has a vengeance aspect rooted in justice more than personal vendettas.

I think you have different understanding of "elveness" then I do.

(Of course, I also feel that Shelyn is a much better Elven Goddess then Calistria.)

Mikaze wrote:

But there are a ton of other possibilities to choose from when you consider the Empyreal Lords. There are some other gods that could also appeal to elven paladins. Tsukiyo is wonderful for this**, with the only stumbling block being that he's primarily known in Tien Xia. Then again, Katapesh has a little bit of everything, Tien (and potentially Jinen elves) immigrants and travelers included.

And then there's the Egyptian/Osirion gods, that can easily be worshipped by the elves of that area. Wadjet stands out as a strong possibility.

I should definitely look into Wadjet.

Yes, Tsukiyo would be awesome. I should see if my Game Master would allow him.

What kind of feel and aesthetic do you want from your paladin? What elven traits and cultural aspects do you want to emphasize? is he from one of the desrt tribes, an Ekujae elf, or from further abroad? Do you want him to be of the local cultures or do you want him to be more of an outsider?

I was originally thinking of a "foriegner" (The "Seeking Adventure" campaign trait) but the stats really scream "horse nomad."

Well considering Legacy of Fire a great pick up for encounters combat/role-playing wise could be Sarenrae or even Abadar both are prevelent religions in Katapesh.

I've also found Ragathiel to be quite neat to play for a Paladin dedicated to chivalry, duty, and vengeance.

True. But I've often felt that Abadar is kind of "anti-elven."

Shelyn seems like a good fit though. And, I can easily see that the AP really pushes Sarenrae.

Anyway, you can make this work mechanically. Especially if you are an archer paladin. But even as a melee paladin, it just ends up with 12 less con than 'normal' on a 20 pt buy.

On a 15 pt buy....a bit more painful, but I can end up with something workable. And all paladins are painful on a 15 pt buy, admittedly.

Actually, we will be using a 25 point buy ... and there is a Half-Orc barbarian in the party.

Yeah, no issue with stats on a 25 point buy. This is part of why I like 25 points, it makes choosing races that aren't 100% suited to a chosen role more viable.

16 STR/12 DEX/12 CON/14 INT/8 WIS/16 CHA (post-racials) is a suitable spread for this character.

Really, I was looking more towards:

  • 13 Str (3 points)
  • 18 Dex (10 points) - for good riding and archery (Did I mention the Barbarian?)
  • 12 Con (5 points)
  • 14 Int (2 points)
  • 10 Wis (0 points)
  • 14 Chr (5 points)

That seems more balanced.

Otherwise i can't really recommend any others without knowing where your character is from in Golarion (assuming this is the world setting).

I wasn't thinking the of the Elven Pantheon, that that might work. Yes, the world is Golarion.

This character will be for Legacy of Fire, but he does not need to be a Katapeshi.

Bobbi and Mack may be right. Coulson's branch of S.H.I.E.L.D. is answerable only to Coulson (who fortunately is very moral); and this would still make reasonable people very nervous.

I actually had a couple of other problems with the episode.

1 - Why did they put Skye on the "Index"? We know that HYDRA also has access to the index, and still has many of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s old resources. Did Coulson and May just reveal Skye (as more then just a rookie agent) to HYDRA?

2 - Does S.H.I.E.L.D. (post Winter Soldier) still have any authority over "meta-humans"?

I honestly didn't consider the "Other" Shield that much of a surprise twist. I pretty much figured everything on the show was leading up to that, and it makes perfect sense given the fractured fall of the organization after the Hydra reveal. Of course their would be other factions that were not Hydra that would be interested in rebuilding the organization, and not all of them would be fans of Coulson/Fury.

Did not someone upthread mention the remnants of the World Security Council (the original "leaders" of S.H.I.E.L.D.) would want to rebuild the organization?

If so, they might (understandably) not agree that former Director Fury had the right to hand over S.H.I.E.L.D. to Coulson.

Also, if these are the surviving members, it would explain why Bobbi and Mack are willing to obey them over Director Coulson.

My players just met Meyanda. Now that was a very fun encounter. At first, they were losing against the lieutenant (along with some fanatics and ratfolk); to the point where one of the androids was knocked unconscious and the rest of the party fled (leaving the unconscious android behind).

Instead of killing the player, I had Meyanda capture him. I also roleplayed her to want to convert other androids to the cause, so she was sickly sweet towards the a doors, healing him, caressing his face, and sweet talking him to try to convert him to her cause.

Meanwhile, the rest of the group rallied and regrouped, readying for a second assault and a rescue mission.

They conversed philosophy, religion, her religion, her plans, why she was doing what she was doing, and he led her on making her beieve that she was converting him. Right up until the point where he heard battle outside the room and then fired his gun at a weak spot in the engine, attempting to blow the whole thing up. Unfortunately, the explosion wasn't as powerful as he'd hoped, and it only caused to make Meyanda angry. Meyanda - also aware that his friends were just outside - knocked him unconscious and left to "deal with his friends, so we can continue in private."

This time around, they were victorious. They managed to knock Meyanda unconscious and put her in jail.

Very fun encounter all around.

The problem with this approach is that Androids are supposed to be emotionless. Not only would this approach have been unlikely to occur to her, she would also know that it would fail against another Android. (Emotionless is VERY hard to role-play.)

She would have attempted the logical discussion of religion. Reason is the way that most Androids would try to communicate.

I have a couple of questions regarding the Primal version of the Elemental Air bloodline.

Do the “Burning Hands” and “Scorching Ray” spells still change to Electricity? If so, does the new Bloodline Arcana still enhance them?”

Would a Sylph (elemental plane touched) still benefit from their elemental affinity (+2 Charisma) bonus?

How does the Primal variant compare to the normal Elemental Bloodline? The Sorcerer’s Guide suggests that Primal is a significant improvement.

So, my players just had their first encounter with the Kasatha skeletons. Those four claw attacks did a number on them, especially when they came from one possessed by Hetuath, thus gaining the Advanced template. Believing the skeletons to be undead Androffans, they then took the remains of one of the Kasatha back to town with them -- disassembling the bones to carry back in their packs, and then hiding the bones under loose floorboards in the warpriest's basement. Here's hoping they manage to turn the habitat back on quickly when they go back in--otherwise, they're going to find a skeleton on a rampage next time they come back to town!
I believe It's mentioned that if the light of day touches the bones, the curse is lifted and they turn to dust. So the skeleton wouldn't be running amok, it would be stuck in the basement. :P

Even in the basement, it would seek the sunlight - turning to dust anyway.

Runelords: Not so much a weak link, but a pitfall to avoid: In Burnt Offerings, be sure to spend as much time as possible building up Sandpoint as an interesting, quirky, nice place filled with people that the PCs care about. Because if you don't, as soon as the PCs get to Magnimar in Book 2, they'll never want to bother going back. At the start of Book 3, I got an audible groan of 'Man, here again?!" when they returned to Sandpoint, and their defense of the town against the giants was somewhat... half-hearted.

One element of Fortress of the Stone Giants that struck me wrong is that the Sandpoint Militia is totally uninvolved in the battle. One would think after the goblin invasion from Burnt Offerings that they would have tried to make the down a bit more defensible.

IMHO These are the problems I am seeing. I am only including the APs with which I have direct experience.

Rise of the Runelords had two problems for me.


  • First is a general "disconnectedness" between modules. (The Anniversary Edition tries to help with that, but still ... )
  • Second is that The Hook Mountain Massacre grossed me out.

Curse of the Crimson Throne didn't appear to have any serious weaknesses (or I have an outstanding Game Master for that AP).

Second Darkness has one HUGE problem, and one minor one.


  • The "bait and switch" in The Armageddon Echo is very serious. The Player Characters are expected to switch between self-centered Neutrals to self-sacrificing heroes with no explanation as to why they would do so.
  • Also, A Memory of Darkness is just a weak scenario.

Council of Thieves has four weak links.


  • Bastards of Erebus: Demiurge 1138 is completely right. I also jettisoned the first half of this book.
  • The Six Fold Trial: The danger here is that the heroes might (understandably) refuse to perform in the murderplay. The GM needs to plan accordingly.
  • The Infernal Syndrome: This book adds almost nothing to the AP's main plot, though it becomes important for Book 6.
  • The Twice-Damned Prince: The actual plot of the CoT ends in Book 5 (Mother of Flies), so this book tries (lamely) to pick up on the theme introduced in the first half of Bastards of Erebus (and which had been ignored until this point). It doesn't help that it is also a weak scenario.

Since the body doesn't bleach when killed, magic jarred or trapped the soul, it shouldn't when reanimated as a zombie either.

Also, barring 9th level magics, that body is completely unfit to house a mortal soul again in the fashion of living. Unless you're running around with the capability to Miracle/Wish/True Res the zombie back into your buddy, its not really something that would come into play.

I made a tech vehicle since book 3 suggested it. Made a hover cycle. Used two in the arena. Working on Dusklight.

Technological Artifact

Graviton Cycle
Slot none; Weight 425 lbs.; Capacity -; Usage -
DESCRPTION
The graviton cycle is a technological vehicle comprised of little more than a sturdy metal frame, a power source, a seat, and no wheels. The graviton cycle hovers just above the ground and is not affected by difficult terrain. The cycle is remarkably sturdy and well suited to the rigors of Numeria’s barren wastelands. Due to its size, the vehicle is only considered a Medium object when not in use.

Large Land Vehicle
Squares 2 (5 ft. by 10 ft.; 5 ft. high)
DEFENSE
AC 13 (+4 armor, -1 size); Hardness 15
Hit Points 116 (57)
Base Save +2
OFFENSE
Maximum Speed 120 ft.
Acceleration 60 ft.
Attack ram 1d8
CMB 1; CMD 11
DRIVE
Propulsion Graviton Drive (1 square of energy drive; hardness 10, hp 60; extreme device); graviton drive located within the driving space, beneath the driver
Driving Check Acrobatics or Knowledge (engineering)
Forward Facing the vehicle’s forward
Driving Device steering bar, throttle and brake
Driving Space a single 5-ft.-by-5-ft. square that contains the steering bar, throttle and brake that serve as the cycles’ driving device; the driving space is located directly in the middle of the vehicle’s space, and shares this space with the vehicle’s energy drive.
Passengers 1 (a single medium passenger may share the driving space, just behind the driver, however, this causes the space to become cramped, imposing a -4 penalty to the driver’s driving checks.)
LOAD
There is ample room along the rear of the vehicle, in which 2 backpacks may be mounted for storage utility.
FEATURES
Glaucite Armor (light): The vehicle gains a +4 armor bonus to AC from a lightweight polymer resembling glaucite.
Illuminators: A pair of bright technological lights are mounted on the vehicle. These give off normal light in a 60 foot cone in front of the vehicle and increase the light level...

What is the "drive" skill for this?

Since the campaign presumes that the heroes start as a party, I was wondering if this would be a good intro.

It has a couple of advantages over the normal PFS use, that ...


  • One of more of the characters is MUCH more likely to have the technologist feat.
  • The technological treasures found in this adventure are much less likely to be unbalancing to the campaign.

I noticed you came in top 32 of the RPG Superstar 2009. What was your entries? What did you think of it?

I am kinda thinking of entering myself on of these years so any thing you can share about your experience?

My entry was the Lordly Pavilion.

My failing Second Round entry was Bricius.

One thing I did learn is that they are not as strict in the "rules adherence" as they claim. You can make it through even with errors if your entry has enough panache.

However, my experience may not be that helpful. The way that first round judging is done has changed radically. When I was in, your entries were judged by a panel of Game Designers, but now it is done by votes of the Paizo community.
