Silver Crusade

Use a lucern hammer. It has reach and is a martial weapon 1d12x3. There are no non exotic weapons that have a x4 crit multiplier. X4crit multipliers make a weapon exotic.

The only way I know of to increase a weapons crit multiplier is to be a Kensai or be A mythic champion.

You really don't need a higher crit multiplier as A Paladin. Use your smite. Buy the extra smite feat at 3rd level. As soon as you can afford it put holy on your weapon then add axiomatic with your paladin ability to enchant your weapon. That is 1d12x3+4d6.
There are also. Bracers that increase your level for smiting by four levels. If you are going for a reach build also consider lunge and combat patrol.

Silver Crusade

Panda stats are in the animal archive. A must have book for those of us who like our furry buddies.

Silver Crusade

I asked James Jacobs,in the ask JJ thread about multi-armed races and he told me that the core combat assumtions would have to be redesigned if multi-armed pc's were pathfinderized.

Silver Crusade

Hi James, I was woundering if you and some of the other Pazio guys and gals could start a thread discussing 3pp products and their meshing with Pazio products for playability. It seems to me that there are a lot of
players and GM's that have an irrational haltered of 3pp products.

I really like all the Pazio products that I have bought but as much as Pazio writes they can't come up with all the great ideas out there
SKR games has had good stuff before he worked for you and after he left,
Green Ronin games has good stuff and Marc Randels company has my personal 3pp favorite class the Spell-less Ranger.

Pazio has done nothing to foster this strange attitude but I think Pazio could do a great deal to dispel this. I think that this wold be good for the whole RP industry.

Have a good week end.

Silver Crusade

Vic, would be possible to alternate sets say do 30 pc/npc 15 monsters doing one type on monster like outsiders or undead. Then the next set 30 monsters 15 of one type and 15 of another type and 15 PC type figs.

Pazio has some great art work that just begs to be made into minis.

Silver Crusade

Eric would consider doing a mini line that comprised all of the Iconics,
minis taken from the Inner sea guide and the NPC Codex. I would really like the Halfling ranger and paladin, Kitsune,Nagaji and perhaps some of the planes touched races. Thats and easy 48 minis.

On an unrelated topic, does White Estrid have any siblings?

Silver Crusade

James does White Estrid have any siblings?

I am trying to do backstory for a Bloodrager who is a Angel touch aasimar
how would you suggest how his rage formed? He comes from the Land of the Linnorm Kings. He hails from Halgrim.

James could you give us some hints on how Paizo designed the new tech weapons.

James would Pazio consider marketing a lexicon of Golarion words and names for MS Word and the MAC. I think this would sell very well for Pazio devoted fans.

Silver Crusade *

I should explain further what I am suggesting. If you come from Tien-Xia
you would get some of the eastern weapons that are exotic as martial and some of the western weapons that are martial or exotic would be exotic for a character form Tien-Xia. example a Tien would get a Tetsubo as a martial weapon but would have to take an exotic weapon feat for a Lucern hammer or Bec-de corbin.

Silver Crusade *

Mike and John. would you consider swapping proficiencies with western weapons for proficiencies for eastern weapons for characters that come form Tien-Xia.

My personal favorite eastern weapon is the Tetsubo but with the lack of feats that I would get for the class that I have chosen I cannot see the utility of wasting a feat on a exotic weapon feat for an iron bound club that is much easier to master than a Katana or a long sword.

Silver Crusade

I think Paizo should scrap the extra HP while raging and replace it with DR/- equal to 1/2 of the Barbarians level. IMO this would do the same thing as extra temp hit points and be an easier mechanic for players to use. The Extra Con given by raging will still give the Barbarian at least a +2 on their Fort save more when the Barbarian gets greater rage.

Silver Crusade *

I ran this last night. It was overly complex IMO. The puzzle was so Involuted that I as the GM could not understand it and we were already pressed for time so I talked with my players and skipped the puzzle and my players had a great deal of fun RP'ing with the time dragon.

My only gripe was with the name of the bbg in the future could the authors make the name of the BBG's easier to pronounce most of us do not speak ancient egyptian for Ptolemaic period so pick easier names. Cleopatra would have been nice Isis would have been great and both would have fit into the scenario.

One other small gripe was if you put templates on creatures please add them to the stat block.

Silver Crusade *

In the write up for the room it states that there are billowing icy clouds in the room. granting at least partial concealment. The centipede
was invisible [total concealment] and delivered a touch spell. This does not break invisibility. IMO according to RAW your GM screwed up.

Sometimes GM's don't like to see the BBG not be able to do things that they [GM's] want them to do. I think this was the case with you GM.

The player came up with an inventive use of his spells and familiar to save another PC the GM should have applauded this and had the BBG go after other members of the party.

Silver Crusade

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Jason, if you fix other rules in unchained please fix the WBL table it does not mesh with the cost of magic items. Pazio designs many great magic items that players will never see as they are too expensive for any pazio produced products. Examples Shadow Lords Armor 117,500gp Field Medics Breast Plate 53,500 gp, Most staffs. It is now nice to tease the people who buy your products with Items there characters will never be able to buy because of faulty WBL designed by WOTC [note this not Pazio's fault except you did not fix it.]

Since you are doing the Summoner could you talk to SKR and slip in his Robomancer arch-type it is really cool.

On the Rogue could you add the Skrimisher and Scouts Charge to the Rogues talent list this would greatly add to fixing the Rogue IMO.

It looks like Pazo did a great job with the Advanced Class Guide, keep up the good work.

Silver Crusade *

I've got a question I'm the gm for all three parts. Do I ever get to use mythic goodies on the character that I apply the credits too?

Silver Crusade

Ravingdork, why don't you suggest to your player to have his pirate ship have a cannon or a Parrot Rifle that fires case shot.

Case shot is hundreds of musket or mini balls that are packed together and fired like a shotgun when the cannon is fired

Silver Crusade

James, where is Ragathiel worshhipped?

Silver Crusade

James, I was wondering why Pazio does not design items for new classes when they are released. An example, when the Magus came out, IMO a Bladebound Magus would never buy a metamagic rod as it would make much more sense to have the metamagic bound into a ring. This is simple for a home game the GM could house rule it but in PFS only Pazio Magic items are allowed.

James, Could you talk to Jason and see if would be possible to change Celestial Obedience’s could be modified so they could be used in PFS.
If I am reading them correctly most start when the PC has 12+hd or is a member of a Mystery Cult [Prestige Class]

Silver Crusade

James, could you ask Jason to do a thread like to answer crunchy rules questions?

Silver Crusade

Lemmy, you still did not addresses the major problem with the Rogue the inability to get sneak attacks on a consistent basis. I think that Rogues need a movement based ability like Skirmisher to give the Rogues a greater percentage of sneak attacks per round.

I like the other Talents that you have done for Rogues. I think that an ability to add sneak attack damage to crits. an another talent to add to crit conformation.

Silver Crusade

James, I have to give you and the rest of the Pazio guys and girls a hand you all did a great job on the Slayer class. I really like the Favored Target class ability. I hope there are some better Talents then in the
play test. that is the only weakness in the class IMO. I hope there is
a Skirmisher talent added in the finial version of the slayer.

Can you give us a hint when the Slayer iconic is going to be previewed.

The Bloodrager is very cool also. How does raging and spell casting work?

Silver Crusade

James, I have a question on animal companions. Are animal companions Separate form the PC that they are a part of? The reason that I am asking the somewhat obscure question is that Command word activation says the character must hold the item.

IF the AC is wearing a collar that requires a command word and is part of the character [does not Independently function w/o the character] the AC's master should be able to say the command word that activates the collar.

Could you tell me if I'm full of hooey on this.

Silver Crusade

James, I have two questions on animal companions for you.

1: Would you see anything unbalancing for a large size standard dog as an animal companion?

2: How would magical creation of an animal, say a druid and a wizard work together the druid casts animal growth on the animal and the wizard casts Permanency on a breeding pair of animals then they are bred would that work?

Silver Crusade

Impact AoMF is not the same as Strong Jaw. AoMF W/impact only increases
the damage step of a fist by one size Category strong jaw increases it by
2. So the Item does not exist. I am making a custom item for a home game for an animal companion. As far as a command word the AC is within 30 ft of the master most of the time so his master could say the command word as the master and his brothers crafted the Item.

Silver Crusade

After seeing the Pricing I Think I would change it to 1x a day for 7 min. Command word activated for 10.800gp

Its for my animal companion. A custom animal companion a Skaith Hound which is a dog large sized.

Silver Crusade

are there any problems with Bracers of Armor stacking with [Mythic] Enduring Armor.

Silver Crusade

I have never played a multi-class spell caster before. If I took 2 levels of Wizard and 10 levels of Magus would I be able to take spells of the apporiate level from wizard spell list?

Silver Crusade

How would I price a Collar of Strong Jaw. Effect: 3 time per day the wearer of the collar is effected by the Strong Jaw spell for ten minutes each time minimum caster level.

Strong Jaw
Source Advanced Player's Guide pg. 1
School transmutation; Level druid 4, ranger 3
Casting
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Effect
Range touch
Target creature touched
Duration 1 minute/level
Saving Throw Fortitude negates (harmless); Spell Resistance yes (harmless)
Description
Laying a hand upon an allied creature’s jaw, claws, tentacles, or other natural weapons, you enhance the power of that creature’s natural attacks. Each natural attack that creature makes deals damage as if the creature were two sizes larger than it actually is. If the creature is already Gargantuan or Colossal-sized, double the amount of damage dealt by each of its natural attacks instead. This spell does not actually change the creature’s size; all of its statistics except the amount of damage dealt by its natural attacks remain unchanged.

Silver Crusade

James, in the Iron Gods section you commented on a four armed PC race stating that you thought they would be too powerful. Could you expand on that please.

In another gaming system one of my favroite races was a Throon it had no greater power than any of the other strong races in that system.

Silver Crusade

I have a question, would Vescavor Swarms take damage from a character holding a axiomatic weapon when the Vescavor Swarm swarmed on the character holding the axiomatic weapon? Vescavor Swarms are chaoticly aligned.

Silver Crusade

Point Blank Master [Custom]
You are adept at firing ranged weapons in close quarters. When firing while threatened you do not provoke attacks of opportunity.

A You must have a dexterity of 15 to take this feat

B you must have the Feats Dodge and Mobility to take this feat

Point Blank Master [original]
Do not provoke attacks of opportunity while firing one ranged weapon
Prerequisite Weapon Specialization with selected ranged weapon

I changed the Prerequisites for the custom feat to better fit a custom class that I am making. I actually made it a bit harder to get the feat.

As the [original feat is written I do not think the feat Prerequisite matches what the feat does Point Blank Master seems to rely more on Dexterity and mobility to dodge opportunity attacks.

could I get some feed back and comments.

Silver Crusade *

Kujow, If you want a holy avenger spear buy a holy avenger and add the transformative enchantment it costs a flat 10,000gp so you can add it to a named item, one of the few enchantments you can add to a named item as only flat priced enchantments can be add by the PFS rules. hope you have enough prestige to buy a pricy item like a Holy Avenger.

Silver Crusade *

JIggy we were playing a season 5 scenario at 4-5. Also there was no chance of the NPC's winning initiative, one of the PC's was a gunslinger with a +11 initiative and was averaging a 22 to 25 initiative so the rogues would have had to roll a 19 or 20 to win initiative and one of the other PC's was a monk who just flat out beat the crap out of one of the baddies after the baddie who got hit by a snowball.

Silver Crusade *

It seems to me that many of the recent encounters that I have DM'ed my players steam roll with little or no threat to their character unless the players are playing out of tier.

FOr instance in a recent game that I ran I had six players five that were in the correct tier and one newb el 1. The encounter as written was three rogues who to get any kind of their bonus's rely on movement and positioning and when a party outnumbers them 2 to 1 that will never happen. IMO their need to at least 2 more rogues or 1 more Rogue and the boss that were el+2 to make the encounter more challenging for my players. The boss should have had a potion of invisibility or two to make things more challenging.

Silver Crusade

I think that unique armor material should increase the actual ac of the armor.

Mithril is not only light but it is very protective as well. As it was presented in LoTR when frod got speared by the Mountain Troll it knocked him out but did not go trough the armor.

Right now dragon hide armor does no more than regular armor. I think Dragon hide armor should give the same AC bonus that as the dragon it came from and give the same elemental protection as the dagon.
As it is right Now Dragon hide armor is dumbed down so druids can buy it as armor at low levels. Perhaps Pazio could say that the Dragon Hide Armor that is for sale right now comes a lesser dragon kin like Dragoone
and that true dragon hide armor is better more expensive.

As it stands now Adamintine armor is not worth buying it costs 165000 gp
for only a DR of 3 thats 20% of a 10th level characters total gold.
I think that Adamintine should give a +5 non magical bunus to AC so full plate would be +14 to ac and have a dR 5/Adamintine. Aldo each armor type should have a hadness value listed instead of the hardness per inch.

I would also like to see the metal used in Celestial armor stated out and perhaps metals used in infernal and demnc armor stated out as well.

Silver Crusade

Marc, do you have any updates as to when the Hero lab files will be out for New Paths Compendium?

Silver Crusade *

To PFS Leadership, I have an idea I would like to shoot past you.
Would you consider allowing PC's to buy Racial Features via x number of Chronicles?

For instance an Aasimar would be allowed to buy wings by paying 3 chronicles and not advancing a level.

Some might complain this might upset the WBL but IMO WBL is an abstraction and both as a player and a GM I have never seen character wealth upset the balance of a game except by a select few players whom I have never gamed with but only heard about on the boards in other threads.

Silver Crusade

The point buy system is great for society. For home games that I run I let my players pick the stats for their characters or roll 4d6+1 per die toss out the low die. But in all I am I favor of the point buy system
I would never run a game with a 15 point buy but thats just me as I like a high powered game.

Silver Crusade *

Mark, I was under the impression that a Pathfinder was only allowed to own one Wayfinder at a time and that you had to sell or trade your current wayfinder back to the society to get a new one or an Enhanced one or one that has vanities.

This would make sense to me for the reason that a wayfinder could be attuned to the owner so that it could be used like a magic id card. Unlike the Rings that our enemies have. BTW 2 of my characters have collect a full set of them.

:
I believe that wayfinders are use by the 10 to track their agents when they do their tasks after seeing a certain room in a certain scenario, no the 10 would not do that sarcasm.

Silver Crusade

Jessica, does Pazio have contract female artists? If you found some good female artists I think the problem of semi clad female character drawings would go away. After all male fantasy artists pen female art drawings as their as their idealized minds see females in a Fantasy setting.

BTW the new Swashbuckler female Iconic is awesome.

Silver Crusade

Wolfgang, I just picked up Advanced Races 7, on the whole I like it very much. I really like the Apple Brandy magic item.

I was disappointed by the Feats quadruped races need there own feats to do the things mounted feats do. Why should centaurs need to buy ranks in the ride skill at all? Feats for quadruped characters need to be unique
to fit their unique physiology not just a qulge jammed in with biped races.

I liked the two subraces at the end but was disappointed that you did not include centaurs with the equine body of a lite war horse or the equine body of a superheavy warhorse/ Clydesdale.

Overall I give Advanced Races Centaur a three star rating.

Silver Crusade

James, are any of the Iron Gods books going to have lower tech items like Lever action or semi auto slug throwers? I think gunslingers need them as the current black Powder rules just suck IMO as they have unrealistic rates of fire. I think Pazio needs to do a redo on the firearms rules Increase the damage and reduce the rate of fire to a max of 2 shots a round.

I am really looking forward to Iron gods and will buy all of the AP and books for it.

Silver Crusade

Does Pazio plan to release Hobgoblin Minis soon? Pazio has released Tons of Goblins and Bgbears both of which I have seceral of but no Hobgoblins yet.

Silver Crusade

Would it be possible to move the location of the 2 PFS forums to location higher on the main page?

Silver Crusade *

Is The Emerald Spire Super Dungeon going to be sanctioned for PFS?

Silver Crusade

I was very disappointed in Inner Sea Combat, Why did you waste space in a book that was supposed to be about Martial class characters with Rouges and Monks? Give those classes they own books. Right now IMO Pazio is being out done in feats by your Competitors [Kobold Press]. Please introduce Scaling Feats for martial Characters and cut out the obnoxious feat trees that you seem wedded to. For instance in Inner SEA Combat there is a feat tree that takes 4 feats to gain flying mount/ companion that can be ridden. Why not make the initial Feat scale as the Ranger gains levels the feat increases in strength so the Ranger does not have to blow 4 feat of his total feats on a flying animal companion.

You do not make casters take a boat load of extra feats to cast their spells which are far more powerful than any animal companion that a Druid or Ranger can ever have.

I Liked the magic Items in Inner Sea combat alot but they are over priced IMO. The Efreet Scabbard cost 43000 GP That half of the expected wealth for a 10th level character for one Item according to the WBL table either you need to scrap the WBL table or price you items at a lesser price.
All of the items in Inner Sea combat a good most of them are just over priced IMO.

Silver Crusade *

In my lodge we have some what of a unique problem our VC has for the past 3 years asked our store coordinator not to schedule scenarios released after april until after the conventions season this makes it very hard to play every week I gm also I am almost to my second star.

I think credit for replay should be allowed for levels one to five. Its really not fun for me at least to play levels 1 to 5 any way but it is necessary to play in those games so that I can play in the higher level games that I enjoy.

Silver Crusade

Hi Pazio guys and girls, why dose't Pazio publish its books both fiction and game books in Ibooks or kindle[My preference would be Ibooks as I have an Ipad.] format. PDFS really don't look very good and their engines are very clunky.

IF its a Monetary Issue I'm sure you could charge a slightly higher price
and your buyers would pay it to get a better product.

Silver Crusade

Hi James Jacobs, I have a question for you on Cheliax Asmodeus and His followers. With the World Wound being over run by hoards of Demons who Asmodeus hates. Why would Asmodeus not promote some of his Chiliaxan followers to the Ranks of Devilhood? This would cost him nothing and would gain him more souls. This seems like a win win for Asmodeus at no cost even if some of the new qusai devils survive the battles to seal the world wound, Asmodeus gain strong minions who owe him fealty and can be used in his other plots against the other Arch fiends

Silver Crusade *

Why not cut the advertising pages from the PDF and put in all the stat blocks instead. The People that buy the scenario PDF'S already see all the advertising when they buy the other Pazio material that is released every month.

Silver Crusade

Marc any idea when the Herolab files will be done?
