Silver Crusade

i can't find blood bound in iBooks.

Silver Crusade

James, what books in the country books line are going to released in 2016? Do you know if countries like Galt, Molthune and the countries in the Kelshite empire are going to get books?

What is your favorite country that has not been covered in print yet?

Has there been any thought for an evil NPC Codex? It would be nice to have bad guys pre-made. Would it be possible to get a large book 128 pages on organizations like the Aspis Consortium and other nare do well
organizations.

James Have a Merry Christmas and Happy new year as well as all of your fellows at Pazio.

Silver Crusade

Thanks James, what is the correct term for when a Pit Fiend creates unique devil with his devil creating power?

Silver Crusade

James, I need your help. I am writing the back story for one of my characters. He is an inquisitor of Asmodeus and a member of the Thrune family. I plan on buying the new book on Cheilax on the 18th but I would like to get his story written before then.

Are all members of the old kings line dead? Does Abrogail have any Kids? Does she have any paramours or a former husband or bastards.

My character was recently made a Cambion by Abrogail's Pit Fiend for foiling an Assassination attempt on Abrogail by a terrorist group in our campaign that is trying to topple the government. His reasoning was he saw my character as an up and commer and wanted to be able to control him and have my character indebted to him so he gave him power as a method to do this as well as having my character contracted to him.

Silver Crusade

James, does Abrogail Thrune have any siblings? IF so what are their names.

Silver Crusade

Alexander, would it be overpowered for each race to gain a martial ability related to their race as they progress in levels and not have to take feats for them. I also would be in favor of spell casters having progressing options related to their race as they increase in levels.

}A caster gets three, maybe four fireballs a day at 7th level. A dwarf with the full Dwarven Fury style chain has the benefits of those feats every round for every combat in every day. Martial options are good if you stop comparing them to spellcaster snapshots.[/quote wrote:

That's true if combats in modules and adventures were not designed on the 10 minute combat where casters can nova and not have to worry about running out of spells. in 6 seasons of PFS I have never seen a full caster at 5th level + run out of spells.

Just so I do not seem anti caster, I think PFS has totally borked arcane casters by making staffs so expensive that I have never seen one in PFS below 11th level.

Silver Crusade

Owen, I was disappointed in the weapon masters handbook. IMO it is just another book that is a list of feats for martial characters that require
a large number of feats to take to get an an underwhelming ability.
I see an overwhelming design bias by pazio vs. martial characters.

casters do not have to take feats when they choose new spells to qualify for a new spell. They may take metamagic feats that are worth several martial feats for each metamagic feat.

for instance compare the feats Maximize spell to weapon Specialization
a caster can use a spell slot three levels higher to cast a spell that has all damage dice maximized to a feat that only fighters get to take that gives a flat +2 per hit.

I think some of these biases can be corrected easily. For instance give all martials and partial martial/casters weapons training. For instance give rangers weapons training at 7th level and Magus's weapons training at 9th level [back blade magi should get weapons training at 7th do to their cohesion with their weapon.]] make Weapon Specialization and the greater version Available to all martial's once they have weapons training and the second weapons training for the greater version.

Owen the weapon masters handbook is not all bad I really like the Dwarven combat style I don't like that a racial combat style takes until level 7 to be had again casters only had to get to 5th to get fireball or lightning bolt and at 7th the firball gets 7d6 damage
bias shown again.

errata vital strike so it can be used on a charge. Why can casters move and cast a spell but martial's have to stay still to get a full attack it makes no sense it is much easier to move and swing a weapon
then concentrate move your hands and feet at the same time to cast a spell while moving.

Silver Crusade

Mark I am creating a strong jaw collar for my animal companion it is a constant effect when equipped. I have priced it at 15000 gp.
do you think that is enough?

Silver Crusade

I am looking for an item for a low level fighter that would increase or add the weapon training ability so that the fighter would not need to already have the weapons training ability but just need to be able to have it on his list of abilities at a higher level. I do not care about combat maneuvers. I seldom use them except for trip.

Silver Crusade

Mark, do you think an item [Gloves]that increased a fighters level by 5 for the purpose of qualifying for weapons training or greater weapons training class ability would be too powerful. I would prince it at 10000gp the same as a bane baldric.

Silver Crusade

James, why hasn't the Star Titan sought out Geb and laid waste to it?

Silver Crusade

When I am signed in I am not able to see the advice or rules forums to access theses forums I have to sign in while I have one of these forums open. What is causing this problem?

Silver Crusade

Mark, do you think a trait that would reduce the Burn of a Kineticist's burn by 1 point when every they used burn too powerful for a Trait?
I thought of calling it Feel The Burn.

I have Kineticist question, would a swarm be affected if it entered a Kineticist's square when he was useing gather power? If so how much damage would this do to the swarm.

Mark how would you write a power for a Kineticist to channel his blast damage into a melee weapon he was carrying inflicting the damage on whom ever he hit with his weapon.

Silver Crusade

James,which if any Inner sea countries have regular coach service between
major cities and towns?

Silver Crusade

James, do you think Chelish boarder guards would hit random people for bribes to let in people or goods into Cheiliax or do you think they would be too scared if hitting up the wrong person and winding up on the tines of justice?

The whole power struggle within the house GOP is that the Red state republicans are tired of being ruled by the blue state republicans who are spineless Rhinos who have no beliefs other than being reelected.

Why should the Republicans who are elected in majority republican states have to knucle under to blue state republicans who cry all the time that we can't win in our states if the House GOP advances Conservative plans to control spending rebuild the military and on the social side block the democratic gun grabbers and defund Planed Parenthood.

IMO the establishment republicans are gutless. In the Senate they have a weakling in charge. Mitch Mc Connell allows Harry Reid to run roughshod over him The Republicans are so feckless they allow the democrats to use the filibuster rule to block all regular order spending bills none have been passed in the last 8 years, all spending is approved by continuing resolution [which is the prior years budget + the rate of inflation insteasd of spending bills the proper way is to have each department of the federal government submit a budget have it debated and voted on by the committee of jurisdiction and then have amendments passed on the floor voted out of the senate and merged in a conference committee with the house and then sent to the president to sign or veto]

I am going to put forward a radical idea do away with the Senate and go to a unicameral House elected each four years the same election cycle of the President this in my Opinion would make the single remaining house more responsive to the people. if the people don't like the direction of the country they vote out the party in charge and move the country in a different direction. This would also allow for more parties to form change or disappear if they do not work the will of the people. Do away with the House of Lords in the US end the Senate!!
THe time for the Great compromise is over.

Silver Crusade

Mark why are the saves for the Swashbuckler class so bad compared to other new classes. the swashbucker has two bad saves and one good save while all the other new classes have two good save and on bad saves.

Silver Crusade

Mark, why isn't there a feat for a War Priest to get extra fervor? Like there is for a Paladin to get extra lay on the hands?

Silver Crusade

BNW, I did not say we did not need the EPA. The EPA does not need a SWAT team. The EPA is not a law enforcement agency. If the EPA finds criminal activity then it needs to refer that activity to justice and the FBI needs to do the criminal enforcement action. Just like the USDA
should not have an enforcement arm. THe EPA and the Army Corp of Engineers are two out of control agencies under this admistration the
congress needs to cut their funding and do heavy oversight over these agencies. Why does the EPA need over 1000 lawyers on staff that makes them the biggest law firm in the country. If you get too many lawyers
together in one place they will get into trouble as they feel they have to generate billable hours to justify their jobs.

Silver Crusade

So BNW do you think that the EPA should have a SWAT team? IMO they should have no criminal enforcement arm period all enforcement of an environmental law should be referred to Justice and assigned to the FBI for criminal enforcement. he EPA right now is filled with left wing zealots that are just plain crazy, for instance in Montana a cattle rancher got all the correct state permits to build a stock pond on his land and in swoops the EPA and tells the rancher he has to either fill in the pond or be subject to huge daily fines as in the bureaucrats view the rancher was violating the wet lands law.

The Wetlands law should be held unconstitutional as for federal jurisdiction it should have to effect water crossing state boarders or federal land.

Several questions do not have any correct answers for instance
7. At full employment, to slow down price increases during the next year of so, the government should:

A. Raise taxes
B. Increase governmental spending
C. Increase loans to promising college students
D. Stimulate business investment in more efficient machinery

the correct answer to number 7 would be in the US for the Fed to raise the interest rate to slow inflation to slow price increases. The Fed could also tighten the money supply to cause less lending to bring down the rate of inflation by causing less economic activity.

Silver Crusade

James, would be expensive for Pazio to publish its books in the Ibooks format? Would it be possible for Pazio to put the tilte of the book first in the PDF instead of the Pazio number for the PDF. I have to change every book title when I use Good Reader to read the PDF's I buy.

What PDF viewer do you use?

Silver Crusade

James are there any fencing schools in Taldore or Cheliax. What types of fencing do they teach? I am interested in both one handed styles of fencing and fencing with weapons in both hands.

Silver Crusade

Mark, would you think a feat that gave a +4 bonus to parry for a swashbuckler or duelest or any character that had a parry class ability, too powerful? I took the +4 from the feat critical focus,

Silver Crusade

Can a swashbuckler/inspired blade wield a rapier in each hand if he has the two weapon fighting feat chain?

If a swashbuckler has combat reflexes and is using his parry and reposite ability with a dex of 18 and 4 panache could he do 4 parry actions in one round?

Silver Crusade

James are there any pirates that are preying on Chelish shipping near Kintargo or to its north? I am doing the back story for a swashbuckler that hails from that area. If so what are the names of their ships.

Mark, does a inspired blade swasbuckler regain panache when he rolls a critical threat with his rapier when using his Parry and Reposite ability?

Silver Crusade

Mark, I would like your opinion on two feats for the Swashbuckler

Greater Daring-Do: preq: 3rd level
Your exploding d6 improves from requiring a 6 on a d6 to a 5 or 6 an a d6. At 10th level your exploding d6 improves one more step to a 4-6
There are no other changes to the daring-do class ability

The other Feat is a corner feat for the Inspired Blade
Pricing Strike Preq 7th level Inspired Blade
Your fencing style is very deadly. Your critical multiplier increases to 3.

Silver Crusade

James, in my prior post the $20 price point was not for the interactive atlas it was for the lexicon of Golarian words for spelling disabled people like me. I would gladly pay$100 big ones for an interactive atlas. It takes a lot of work.

Silver Crusade

James, could Pazio do an interactive atlas for all of Golarian? James Pazio could make some extra money by putting out a lexicon for Word of
of Golarian words I would pay at least $20 for it.

I was just looking at the map for Cheliax and noticed that Kintarago is not in a very defensible position it looks like it can be easily Blockaded by sea by the Chelish Navy and the army could be landed just north of Kintargo and lay Siege to it. Are the major Chelish cities Walled?

Silver Crusade

James what are the goals of the church of Asmodeus? Does the Inquisition have goals that are separate and above the goals of the rank and file of the clergy? Does Asmodeus have the Inquisition do special missions that he does not share with the rest of the church? Are Asmodian Inquisitors more out ward looking or inward looking?

Silver Crusade

Mark, what would you think of a slayer talent that let the slayer deal sneak attack damage to a target that he has studied for one round. the prereq would be that the slayer have, studied target +2 dex 16+.

what would you think of a rogue/slayer talent that negated the uncanney dodge bonus and an advanced talent that negated the 4 level higher bonus from improved uncanney dodge.

Silver Crusade

Hi James, can you give us a hint about the scourge of the god claw? Does the god claw rebel against the crown?

how does one obtain a para title in cheliax? I have a character that is a para-lictor in the order of the scourge. I think he would like a chelish noble title. he completed the council of thieves ap.

Silver Crusade

Mark does a kineticst with snake have to have precise shot to fire into melee w/o suffering the - 4 penalty for firing into melee?

Silver Crusade

Mark, does a kineticist with snake need to have precise shot to aviod the penalty for firing into melee?

Silver Crusade

If you load the spell into the staff yourself then it would benefit from all the feats that would apply if you cast the spell your self. If you pick up a staff that has a spell that you know, that you have spell penatration or spell specialzatuon then no you don't get the benefit of the feat.

Silver Crusade

Can you tells us about canines?

Silver Crusade

Iron Truth. The other day when I posted about the Sun going into a cooling cycle. I got the Russian scientist confused with John Casey the author of Dark Winter. My bad. I heard him tonight on the radio he gave a fairly well researched presentation. I am not going to try to quote from it as I really can't recall much from it right now as I am on some good pain killers right now for my torn rotator cuff. Am going to pick up Dark winter soon and read it as I have six weeks of time off from work after Tuesday.

Do you know any good books on global warming? I really liked the link from the team at Berkley IWould like to read thier research it sounded real good.

Do you know of any studies on the in crease of C02 n the last 50 years? I am always open to learning new things.

Would the more left leaning posters join with me in trying to stop deforestiztion in the 3rd world countries. I think if the 1st world countries set up a fund to pay the developing countries to plant trees it would help the global warming problem as much as trying to limit co2 out put in the1st world countries. Could I get see comments on this?

Silver Crusade

Sorry Mark, I thought I was in James's Thread. Don't post on oxey.

Silver Crusade

HI James, I know you don't normally answer rules questions but since you are the go to guy for Tech rules, I am designing a smaller version of the railgun a 2 handed rifle that does 2d10 20x4 with 20 charges for 20,000 gp what would you think about this?
In the tech guide on page 17 the girl in the art work has a implant on her eye what is it? I am thinking of designing a tech item that is an eye implant that gives the weareer the See in darkness ability but can't figure out how implanted items are recharged. How are they recharged?

Mark could you talk to the rules team about making an unchained bear animal companion? Bears get shafted by the rules compared to big cats and dinosaurs. Bears should start at medium and go to large the same as big cats after all big bears are bigger than big cats. End bear discrimination now.

Silver Crusade

Before Varian pettions Her Infernal Queeniness to make Radovan a Barron, first Varrian has to make nice with his Queen. She was expecting her subject to give her the magic tome he gave to queen Galfrey. If Radovan was. Created a Barron by the Queen and rebelled he would be captured by the Hell Knights and taken to the tines and executed. Radovan is all ready on aCertan parlictor's s~#@ list and Radovan wants to stay on his good side and Varian just wants to be on her selfs good side so he would not rebell. They might aid in putting down a rebellion.

Silver Crusade

I myself am a Climate change Skeptic, not because i fundamentally disagree with the science because I do not trust it at all, scientists on the left and right both rely on grants and most grants are given by governmental organizations who have a left wing bias or by Energy producers who have a right ward bias.

The scientists that I feel are non-polluted by grant money are the Russians. They Study climate change because of how it relates to their bastion sea geostrategic submarine deployment theory, which depends on sea ice thickness levels in the Arctic ocean.

NOAA blew a big hole in the global warming science movement when it recently released a 15 year global temperature study that found that there had been no rise in global temperature in the last 15 years but a slight drop of .5 of a degree in average world temperature. Real science
Observation and reporting opposed to modeling.

Loved Yoon's back story. what is the weapon Yoon is carrying?

Silver Crusade

One youn cannot weild a lance 2-handed while mounted it is physicaly impossible.
You are getting the bonus damage from the momentum of the charging 2000pound horse that you are mounted on.the person who wrote that rule most likely inferred that someone reading the rule would take that into consideration. The knight is not using his own muscle to power the lance, the butt off the lance is in a cup that is attached to his horses saddle.

That is why there are crave outs in the rules for mounted lances. Have any of the poster ever seen a joust lances are never used two handed while mounted you have a shield in your off hand. You don't fight with a lance dismounted they are made of wood and would not last more than one blow with any melee weapon.

Silver Crusade

Has anyone heard the latest news from the Solar science community? They predict that the sun is going to experience a cooling cycle in the next 15 to 20 years that will mean the ave temp in the northern hemisphere will drop 5 to 10 degrees during the cooling cycle. Somewhat like the little ice age that happened in the middle ages.

Iron Truth would you be in favor of building more pipelines from the Bakken oil fields to Texas? Would you support building the XL pipeline
to ship oil sands oil from Canada to Texas?

Silver Crusade

James, who do you think would win in a battle between the Rune Lord Karzoug and the Sky Pharaoh .

Silver Crusade

Alex, You can't take Empower Lay on the hands until at least 3rd level because you have to have Lay on the Hands before you would take anything that would modify it and you don't get LoH until 2nd level.

I would consider requiring a 15 Charisma.

You would also have to be a Paladin or a Hunter/Blessed Healer [Note Blessed Healer is an arch type that I made you have to LG or NG to take the arch type]

this would not add additional times per day, that would be extra lay on the hands an existing feat this would be the similar to the Empower spell feat it would simply increase the amount of healing that Lay on the hands does. This feat is primarily designed for a hunter arch type that uses a lay on the hands like ability.

The reason I picked the 3 times per day is that 1 time a day would be too weak and the empower meta magic lesser rod is doing the same thing for at a cost of 9000gp most feats made into magic item powers run about 10000gp

Silver Crusade

would anyone see any problem with a feat that would empower Lay on the hands 3x per day?

Silver Crusade

Mark what do you think about a feat that would Empower Lay on the Hands
1.5 x the number of dice 3x per day?
