Hi Mark, I want to make sure I am doing mythic spell casting right. I cast a quickened spell on my turn then a spell with my standard action then on my opponents turn I cast another mythic spell that says that I can cast it with an immediate action.
Is this right? Can I use a metamagic rod on the second spell?
Mark, would you think a Trickster 1st tier path ability that changed the sneak attack die type from a d6 to a d8 and at 3rd tier, 3 additional dice would be added to the sneak attack dice pool and at 6th tier the die type would be changed to a d10.
do you think the above is over powered or would be fine?
James Sutter's the one in charge of the Tales line, but I can tell you right now that writing novels for Pathfinder is something we want to continue to control; it's not something we're interested in letting authors write without us approving and proofing the novels.
James I did not mean I wanted other authors to write Novellas I want the fine authors that you already use to produce more Pathfinder content just in e-book form so it could get to your fans faster. print books take 6 months to a year to get published.
James, who at Pazio is in charge of the Pathfinder Tales Line? I heard James Patterson [The author] on the radio this morning talking about novella's that he is writing for amazon and ibooks. I think something like that would be real cool for us readers of Pazio Tales that would like more content.
Do you think you could ask the person in charge of Pazio Tales to find out if the Pazio Tales authors could write novells that we could buy on line? I think Pazio could make some good money doing this.
The easiest way to fix the staff is to change the charging rules.
I would even add a feat, Fast charge: for each 3 caster levels that you have you can reduce the number of spell slots need to charge a staff by one, you cannot reduce the cost below one spell slot per charge.
One problem I see with certain Pazio rules is that they ae overly complex staff charging and item creation as a whole is an example of this.
When non native outsiders are killed on a plane that is not their own don't they reform on their home plane? I would think that a Solar or Planatar could use raise dead on an Angel as their magic is of a direct divine nature powered by their divine essence not magic passed on to a mere mortal. I would also say Devils,demons and deamons could do the same. Though I think by a nature deamons would not bring back a failure.
James why are so may evil female NPC's depicted as bald tattoed and pierced? The only female baddie that I can think of who is not drawn that way is Queeen Abrogail the II. Could Pazio make more female baddies that don't look they just escaped from Nidal or is that just the Female baddie fashion in Golarion?
Liane, Hellknight is one of the best books in the Pathfinder Tales series.
I really liked how you portrayed the Hellknight orders. Before I read the book an event in our long term home game where I am playing a Hellknight Signifier of the Scourge was researching a certain monster only to find the book that he needed with the information on the monster had been burned recently by members of the Rack.
Are you going to write a follow on novel using the same characters? I would like to see the interplay between the Paladins steward and his new mistress. The minor characters were all written very well I really liked
A novel set in Egorian would be really nice full of intrigue murder and infernal politics.
When you are doing your writing how do you deal with a custom lexicon if you use a word processor?
HI James, are the Pathfinder Novels considered cannon in the pathfinder universe? The Reason that I am asking in the new novel Hellknight [btw it is one of the best books in the entire line so far] In Hellknight their is a character Veleene Thrune who is depicted as a member of house Thrune, I was wondering if she was directly related to Queen Abrogail or if she is a member of cadet branch of House Thrune.
The reason that I am asking is that I am writing a character History for one of my characters who I would like to be in House Thrune. He is a Baron. I would like him to be a Thrune but direct relation to the Queen is not necessary could you give me an idea of whom he might be related too?
How closely are the Church of Asmodeus and the State related to one another? How close is the Inquisition to the church and the state?
My character is an Inquisitor of Asmodeus who is bound to Gorthoklek
Mark, do you think a Mythic Path power that increased all of the fixed numeric scores for a Judgment by 3 would be ok or do you think it would be overpowered for a number of minutes equal to his tier for 1 mythic power point?
On the same mein would a path power that allowed an inquisitor to have an additional Judgment active would be a good path power?
James, could we get some new artwork for Pit fiends. All the current artwork that I have seen pictures Pit Fiends as fat tubs of Lard. Could we get a some art work showing a ripped Pit fiend. I could see Asmodeus
Mark, if a firearm was made of adamantine do you think it would be fair to reduce the misfire by 1 and negate the chance for the firearm to explode on a second misfire?
Do you think it would be ok for an advanced rifle to be a breach loader move action to load
Do you think it would be fair rules wise for a non magic scope to give a+1. To hit and a +2 to confirm a critical hit?
James, what do you think that the Whispering Tyrant think of some upstart Tyrant[LE arch type] Drow Paladin trying to take over Ustalav
Can you give me a few ideas of what might happen in Ustalav if the above were to happen. The Big bad is trying through diplomacy and a big scary army to intimidate the local counts into joining him instead of fighting him.
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
James Have a Merry Christmas and Happy new year as well as all of your fellows at Pazio.
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.
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:
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
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
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
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
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.
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 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.
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!!
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
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
A. Raise taxes
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.
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?
