Mark, do you think you could work with the rules team to get the Rogue Talents from Legendary Rouge added to the Rogue Talents for Unchained and the basic rogue?

Those talents are off the chain really good and make the Rogue into what it should be. Right now the Rogue is really lacking in talents, IMO most of the Ninja talents really don't fit the Rogue. You and the other authors/writers of Legendary Rogues really hit a grand slam with Legendary
Rogues.

Silver Crusade

Big Norse Wolf, Lets separate the legal arguments form the issues.
I don't have any problems with two men or two women civily marrying to one another or marrying in a church that welcomes them but a church that
does not accept gay marriage should not be forced or coerced by the state into dong so.

The liberals on the court + Justice Kennedy only read and Interpret the amendments that they want to to push the agenda that they wish to push.
Marriage is not mentioned in the US Construction, therefore it is covered by the 10th amendment which states anything not enumerated in the Construction is reserved for the states. Therefore States laws on marriage should be left for the states so the case in point should not have had standing to be heard in the federal courts.

Does the 14th amendment trump the 1st or 10th amendment. The liberals on the court simply do not respect the free exercise clause of the first amendment, they recoil from it like a vampire recoils from a cross.
Like the chief justice said in his dissent the case did not have a Construction leg to stand on it was decided on the agenda of the 4 liberal justices felt and their social agenda. While waiting for my internet connection to come back on. I was watching the oral arguments for the lethal injection case and you could tell how the four liberal justices were going to vote before the case was heard. None of the 4 have ever voted to uphold a method of the death penalty.

Marriage for all is the law of the land now and the gay militants should be happy and celebrate a good victory and should leave the religious people alone. Be happy with their married partners and stop triing to force the religious to accept their life style because that is not going to happen.

Now everyone can be happily married to a partner of their choosing.
Enjoy it and celebrate it with your friends and family.

Jason and Matt, this is the best 3rd party book that I have bought.
Please work with Hero Lab to get Herolab files for this most awesome book.

The 90 talents just rock everything elese is just as good.

Silver Crusade

James, I have a question are the lengenday games products written by Jason nelson who was the primary author of the mythic rules considered 3 party by Pazio?

Silver Crusade

To the OP read the bloodragers rage power. The Temp hit points you gain while raging come off first. This was changed from the barbarians rage power so you will not die at the end of your rage.

One of the best buff spells a bloodrager can have Ron him is infernal healing. Or greater infernal healing this will auto stabilize you and prevent you dying from bleed damage. Travel with a war priest.

Silver Crusade

Lea was either the half sister or the full sister of harry's mother. That's why Harry calls Lea auntie on a Rae occasion. In one book when Harry is talking to his mothers shade they talked about Lea and Mab.

I really liked the conversation between Lea and Mouse in.Mexico after Harry took out the Evil Vampires.

Silver Crusade

VM, Mab knows aboutHarry because Harry's mom was number 3 in the Winter Court before she was killed When Harry was a kid. Mab considered Harry her Personal property
Long before he became the Winter Knight.

The White Council is not going to mess with Harry because he is the Winter Knight and even though they might be a little pissed at him he has not be expelled from being a warden.

Molly would plain kick all their asses except maybe black staff and ancient mai. (Who is alluded to be being a dragon)

Silver Crusade

James, if Queen Abrogail had all three parts of the glutouness tome and gave them to her patron. What do you think he would do with them? I think Varian might have toy give the Queen the first part of the tome to get back in her good graces. I'm just asking you this as a what if question not that it is going to happen.

Silver Crusade

James, I am trying to port over a race from another system but I don't know how Racial Traits are designed can you give me some hints?

The Race is called Khai-Shang think of a Samurai war weasel

I have thought of two Racial Traits
Expert Swimmer: +1 to all swim checks
Sinuous Grappler: +1 to CMB for all grapple checks, Khai-SHang are natural grapple artists and have a natural rake attack

I am not sure if the 2nd is too powerful for a Racial trait.

Silver Crusade

Mark, what would you think of a feat or an archtype for a ranger,fighter or slayer to give them the 5th level ability from the Inspired blade Rapier training but let them choose the weapon.

I think this would be a good option for staby types as by 5th level they are pretty well locked into a single weapon because of feats ,

If you coupled the above with a feat or class ability to increase the the critical range and critical multiplier for the chosen single weapon by one
I think this would be a good boost for martial types.

What are your thoughts on the above.

Silver Crusade

Dave, with Varian's problems with casting memorized magic why has he not crafted a staff. Now that he is possibly an arcanist that might not be an issue I stll would like to see a high level caster in golarion have a staff.

Silver Crusade

Crystal I posted this over on Marks thread but I would also like you Oppion on this.

Mark, I would like you to purpose to the design team to replace two Slayer/Rogue talents with one. The Two are powerful sneak the greater powerful sneak. Both of them have been proven Mathematically not to be worth taking on the thread related to them on the board.
What I would like to replace them with is a talent that simply increases the die type form a d6 to a d8. I think that doing this in a single talent would not be over powered and be a slight boost to slayers and rogues with out over powering them.

Have you seen the Spell less ranger? The Spell-less Ranger has one talent that I think should be added to the slayer/rogue talent list
Skirmishing Attack: With this talent whenever you move at least 10ft. and
attack in the same round you may apply your Stealth attack damage
[Replace stealth attack with sneak attack as both are precession damage.] if applicable to the target, as though it was flat footed.

If you take more than one attack during the round this ability applies only to the first attack. Foes with uncanny dodge are immune to this ability. From New Paths Compendium

Silver Crusade

James would have a conceptual problem with an Aasimar having the physical features of its celestial parent rather than its human parent.

Silver Crusade

HI Dave, why did you tease of Varian's return to Cheiliax through out the whole book and not have him go home?

How will Radovan's pettion to be made a Barron go over at Court with the feelings of Chelish Nobility on Hell Spawn?

Is Varian's bachelorhood about to end?

On Varian's martial status, I think that given his families status in Chelish nobility that the Queen might try to play match maker to tie Varian closer to the throne. What do you think of that?

Is Varian going to give his third of Goutiness Tome to the Queen in place of the other Book that he was supposed to give her?

Silver Crusade

Lazer X, you have it wrong. Cosmo is not demonic at all he has surpassed mere demon hood. Cosmo is the God of Misfortune. All Mortals bow down before your God and offer supplication lest you be beset with Misfortune.

All Hail Cosmo Lord of Misfortune.

Silver Crusade

Mark, I would like to purpose a new class ability for All Martial classes
Combat Mobility: As a full round action you can make a full move and attack [this attack would include all irrative attacks]at the end move the move. If you have the spring attack feat tree you may combine spring attack with combat mobility and make any of your attacks at any time during your movement. Combat mobility may not be combined with the charge action or vital strike.

a martial character would gain Combat Mobility at the level they gain their first irrrative attack.

This would be balanced with casters by giving casters an additional Metamagic feat or a feat from the spell Profection feat tree or spell penetration or spell mastery feat trees.

Silver Crusade

Jsmes. I have a writing question for you. Do you and the other members of the Paizo staff have a custom lexicon saved in your word processors?

Silver Crusade

Hi James. Book 4 the The Kintargo Contract implies there is a loophole in a contract the was written by the Lord of Lies, the Master of Deception
There are no loopholes in a contract written by him you can only fulfill
a contract written by him and be rewarded or punished for not fulfilling the contract not weaseling out of the contract written by him.

IMO the Kintargo Contract is a con by the big A to draw the heors to the infernal realm for the Big A to deal with them as he sees fit as the Heros
are of Chaos they are doomed IMO. Dealing with a deity in his own realm
should be fraught with peril with only a slight chance for survival somewhat like a group of thieves caught breaking into Albadar's Vault.

It must have been real tricky to write books 4 and 5 of this AP. I look forward to reading them.

Silver Crusade

With that build you won't survive to level 17. you do not do enough damage, you don't have enough hit points and your saves will suck.
you need good will saves and reflex saves for mummy's mask.
your race is sub opitmal for mummy's mask.

Our group is Finishing the AP next week. I would advise doing a different AP Mummy's Mask is written to tell a story not for players want to play a character to level 17 and get gear that a 17th level character should have.

Silver Crusade

Comrade Anklebiter, are you going to vote for Berrnie Sanders? What do you think about him?

Fergie, South Africa was not one of President Reagan's 3 main issues Cutting Taxes/reviving the economy, Rebuilding the military and defeating the Evil Empire [The Soviet Union] so Regan did not expend any of his political capitol on South Africa as it was not on his top ten list of things to do during the time of his Presidency not because of his views on South Africa. Regan, Accomplished his 3 main goals he rebuilt the US Military defeated the Soviet Union by forcing the USSR to spend it self into bankruptcy and the US had the longest peace time expansion in the economy since President Kennedy.

Silver Crusade

Mark, could you suggest to the Adventure Path writers to have the rules team edit portions of the AP's when they have magical effects that alter/change how magic spells and or effects work.

The issues we had last night were in the finial book of Mummy’s Mask
in the Air Room with the Sphinx we could not figure out if the Magic Effect hat was effecting cast spells effected the Magus's Arcane Pool powers that are [Su}.

Silver Crusade

We finished the Lightning and Fire parts of the Pyramid last night.
In the battle in lightning/air portion we had a rules issue. Doe the magic suppression effect, effect SU abilities like the Magus's Arcane Pool Poll abilities?

Perhaps when their is a unique magical effect everything it effects should be noted in the room description.

Silver Crusade

James, how do the lower classes in Cheliax view their nobles and their queen? I interested in the feelings of the common people of Cheliax out side of Kintargo.

Silver Crusade

James, In Lord of Runes it talks about some sort of upheaval in the political structure of Korovosa. Could you comment on was is going on in Korovosa.

Silver Crusade

Hi James, would you have any conceptual problems with a magus that uses a 2 handed weapon as long as its class abilities were balanced?

Silver Crusade

Mark, are arcane exploits considered Spell like abilities for metamagic feats? If not what are they.

Silver Crusade

Mark, do you think a feat that give a Kyton blooded an extra blood line power would be too strong for a feat?

My Idea is to make a feat that gives the Kyton Blooded an attack with their chains like a Kyton1d8 damage.

also do you think it would be ok to make a feat that would give a Kyton Blooded its second AC bonus 4 levels earlier?

Silver Crusade

James. are there any plans do to a Cohorts and Companions book that focuses on classes that have companions as a class feature? I was very disappointed that cohorts and companions had nothing animal companions.

I liked the Construct Rider Arch type for the Alchemist I might consider playing on though since he would be a PFS character he would have to be a halfling. I also don't see any reason why a construct rider would have to limited to a horse pony or camel that's just lame your building a construct it should be able to be anything sized medium it might not be able to do what the creature it depicts does so why could'nt be a dragon looking construct or a mechanical bull looking construct. Picture a bull construct with the personality of the bull from the bugs bunny cartoons.
That would be a cool side kick for a halfling alchemist.

Sometimes I think the designers go out of their way to try to make certain archtypes unfun by putting in requirements that don't seem well thought out trying IMO to add artificial balance when it is not needed.

I shall now dismount my hobby horse and step down from my soap box.

I hope you are having a nice day Jame.

Silver Crusade

We are in book 5 now 1/2 way through we have done the water and earth
parts the encounters have been good even through our gm has to doubble the HP of the creatures as two of the six PC's can dish out 200"+ points of damage a round a ninja and a bloodrager.

My big complaint is the total crap that has been put in this entire ap for treasure for instance after one of the toughest fights in the whole AP
the main treasure was a +2 ring of protection at level 15-16 that is insulting that's a item that is a cr 8 item at the most. we picked up a keen spear from one fight totally useless to the parties fighters at our level as we are pretty much locked into certain weapons at our level because of feats and class abilities we can't go back to town as there is a forbiddance effect where we are at the moment. There have been no wands or staffs or scrolls given out since el 12 if the writer of the AP had any common sense there would have been a crap load of necomatic items
in books 4-5 for treasure maybe some bit of shory magic mabye some sort of holy or undead bane weapon but no they use the WBL rule to kill giving out anything useful to the PC's.

This whole AP seems to me written for the authors not the players.
A large part of the game is collecting new and interesting magic items as you level up. This AP fails totally in this facet of the game.

Silver Crusade

Mark, if you modified the speed enchantment for melee weapons to work like the enchantment for boots of speed would you think it would be ok to price it the same?

Silver Crusade

Crystal, do you take art commissions for people other than Merisiel?
I really like your work.

Silver Crusade

I just picked this book up. I am seldom disappointed in a Paizo product but I am in this one. A book titled Companions and Cohorts should have things in it for classes that have companions like rangers hunters and druids. This book gives classes other than the companion classes access to companions which is not bad in and of it self but there should be things in it for companions of the companion classes.

Why not add a simple feats like the two below

Animal Cohort
Perquisites Level 4: Natures bound, Hunters bound or any Animal Companion

Your Animal Companion is Awakened and it can have an intelligence above 5
and take class levels.

Greater Bound
Perquisites Druid, Ranger Hunter Level 5 and 5 ranks Animal Handeling
Your bound increases with you animal companion or animal cohort. You can
communicate telepathically with your Animal companion or Animal Cohort with a range of on mile per level.

Silver Crusade

Hi James, I have timeline question. Why is the timeline static. Is it so products don't become dated? It would be nice IMO for events too resolve and progress.

In PFS it would be nice if the pathfinders could effect society as a whole by their actions. It would also be nice if the agents were recognized socially for their that benefit their home nations or the nations that their actions benefit, by recognized I mean being granted peerage in that nation.

Silver Crusade

Mark would you see a problem with making a spell like Infernal healing that does not have the evil requirement of devils blood. I have several
Angel Kin Characters who would like to have a spell that gives you fast healing but are repelled by the thought of using devils blood a a spell component and also don't like the Idea of asking The Gather of lies for anything as he is their eternal enemy.

Silver Crusade

Mark, instead of nerfing mithril like it is currently in PF, why not just raise the price and let heavy armor made of mithril count as medium armor and medium armor count as light. and raise the price to 10000 gp for heavy armor made of mithril and 7500gp for medium armor made mithril.

I think adamintine for heavy armor is over priced i think its dr should be increased to DR/5 adamintine. When compared to stoneskin that gives dr/10 for a limited amount of time dr/3 is to low IMO for 10K gp.

James, who at Paizo came up with the concept for Alchemists? What I am curious about is why Alchemists do not make/craft Permanent products everyone can use. By permanent I mean 1 use items that anyone can buy carry around and use.

Silver Crusade

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Mark with the recent changes to how concealment effects sneak attacks and precision damage would the design team consider adding the feat shadow strike to the list of talents that the Rogue, unchained rogue and the slayer cna choose from.

Silver Crusade

Mark, could you use a limited wish to despell or
suppress a permanent forbiddance effect?

Silver Crusade

Mark, I have a question on the Monster universal Summon ability;
if an area like the Sky Pharoah's pyramid that says all forms of
Trans- dimensional travel are blocked would this block a devil from summoning another devil?

would a creature that was entrapped by a hand maiden devils tentacle cage loose his strength adjustment to hit and damage when he is trying to break out of the tentacle cage?

Hi Mike and Mark, I know that you can spend prestige points to have your body recovered if you are killed while on a mission.

What I was wondering how this works. Does the society have a 911 team that teleports in picks up the body of the recently slain and teleports back to the nearest lodge and resurrects or raises the recently slain member that has paid for the service.

I have a Hospitaler Paladin that has Ultimate Mercy that would be perfect for such a team. I could see the society have teams like this standing by in major lodges or maybe just the grand lodge and when the newly alain distress band is activated t-porting in and picking up the body and then t-porting out.

Spoiler:
I know the Ten have the ability to do this since I have played eyes of the ten.

Silver Crusade

Eric how about these:
Warcat of Rull
Aasamir Paladin
figures for all planar races
Male barbarians
Golden Guardian
Grave knight
Crowe Bloodrager Iconic
male swashbucler with rapier

Silver Crusade

Owen would'nt be easier to give mythic Magus component freedom somatic as a class feature and delete the sentence requiring a magus to have one hand free to cast from spell combat.

Silver Crusade

Mark, with the new cohort rules can if you take the cohort feats can your AC take class levels.

This is another AC Question. Why do AC's have to take light/med armor proficiencies to take heavy armor proficiency? its not like the AC goes to the armorer and buys armor trains with it like a fighter. The AC's master buys the armor the master wants it to wear. The master should be required to have the armor proficiency he wants to train his AC in.

This is a question On Mithril Armor. Why did Paizo gimp mithril armor.
If Mithril armor counts as one category lighter then logically it should also require the same proficiency that it it is reduced to.

Plate armor is much easier to wear fight in than any med armor any way the only reason plate armor was not more wide spread in usage was that it was very expensive to make.

Silver Crusade

Mark I am trying to port over a race from another game. This race has a racial jumping and leaping ability that lets them jump/leap 15' vertical by 20' Horizontally as part of a move action. How would you suggest that I write this up so it makes sense in pathfinder lingo.

Silver Crusade

Hi James, I have a few setting questions today.
1: What is Qudria's relationship with the rest of the Empire and is the Empire going to be detailed at some point?

2:Would it be possible to do a setting book based on the geopolitics of the inner sea nations?

3: In the mythic book there is a universial ability that gives the character the ability to grant spells to followers. Is that how one becomes an Emperyal Lord?

4:This is not a setting question would it be possible for Paizo and lone wolf to work together to get digital renderings of Paizo art for people to use for their characters I would gladly pay $20 to $30 for a set of art work to use for my characters in hero lab.

5: Who is yo favorite iconic from the new Occult Book?

6: Almost forgot would it be possible for Paizo to record the official Paizo seminars and do a subscription web cast for those of us that are not able to go to Paizo Con?

James, I have a setting/{FS question for you. In a world where there is raise dead/res magic how do you permanently kill someone?
I am asking this in regards to the phony traitorous VC/ Decemvirate member in Eyes of the Ten.

Have you Read the Nine Prices of Amber Series? If so how would you create a set of cards similar Magic trump cards the major characters used to communicate with.

Is there something similar to Morganti weapons from the Vlad Taltos novels by Steven Brust in Golarion.

Silver Crusade

Mark, for advanced firearms why do you have to buy metal cartridges and bullets why not just buy a single unit and charge one price per bullet based on what the bullet is made out of it makes more sense and cuts down on paper work. also it would make loading endless bandoleers in herolab
easier.

Silver Crusade

Mark, what would happen to a small mouser swashbuckler that was in the same square as a huge dire croc when the dire croc dies after being stuck by said mouser. Would the mouser need to make a reflex save to avoid being smashed to goo by the Dire croc.

This happened in last nights game The overflow archives.
