Silver Crusade

Mark, does an amulet of undetectable alignment mask ones aura if you have an overwhelming evil aura, My character is an 16th level inquisitor mythic 1 Hierophant custom devil that is lawful evil.

Silver Crusade

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?

Mark, could you pitch a new slayer talent that would mirror the Inquisitor Solo tactics ability. There are many Teamwork Feats that would fit the slayer but most people would not buy because you have to have another player that agrees to buy them.

Mark in your opinion would adding Improved Evasion as an advanced slayer be ok? Is Pazio going to add more Slayer Talents?

Mark why does the garrote no inflict normal damage? Why does it not inflict sneak attack damage? A wire Garrote IN real life inflicts lethal damage, it both strangles and slices the throat of the victum.

Silver Crusade

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.

Silver Crusade

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.

Silver Crusade

The easiest way to fix the staff is to change the charging rules.
Simple if you want to place one 5th level spell in your staff you expend 3 5th level spell slots and if you want to place a meta magiced spell in the staff you simply add the number of spell slots that the metamagic effect costs. example a empowered flame strike spell would cost 7 5th level spell slots to recharge. You can take as many days as needed to recharge your staff.

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.
This feat also works on rods.

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.

Silver Crusade

I meant for this question to go in the ask James Jacobs thread. could a moderator move this into his thread please.

Silver Crusade

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.

Silver Crusade

James, how does a greater devil decide when a lesser devil is promoted?
If a lesser devil became Mythic do you think that would be a good reason for promotion in the ranks of Hell?

Silver Crusade

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?

Silver Crusade

Liane, Hellknight is one of the best books in the Pathfinder Tales series.
Your characters were all very good I really liked the tension between the Paladin and his Lady.

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
The trading of court gossip for historical information. If you write another novel with these characters could you develop the arc with the Dowager’s house marrying off one of her nieces to the house in Egorian.

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?

Silver Crusade

James,are Hell Knights from the Order of the Crux Chaotic evil because they are undead or are they Lawful Evil? It has always been my understanding that all undead were chatoic and most were evil because of the nature of the animating energy an undeath itself.

Silver Crusade

Mark would a magus/archmage with component freedom somatic be able to use spell strike and spell combat 2 handing his weapon and casting spells?

Silver Crusade

Mark. could a pitfiend summon someone who is bound to him using his summon ability? Conversely could the mortal bound to the Pitfiend summon his master using summon planer alley?

Is there an infernal power that would allow the master and servant to communicate with one another at a distance.

Silver Crusade

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
He is also a Hellknight of the Scourge and he has just attained his first mythic tier. He is inquisitor 11 Hellknight 4 mythic 1.

Silver Crusade

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?

Silver Crusade

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
looking at his generals and seeing them looking fat and out of shape and commanding them to go to Hells equivlant of a Golds gym run by Arnold to get into shape.

Silver Crusade

HI Rob. I have found a problem with the Hell Knight Signifer. If you are a divine spell caster why are the feats arcane armor training and arcane armor mastery feats a prereq for the PRC?

Silver Crusade

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
Reduced to a swift action to load with rapid reload or expert loading deed?
The rifle would do 2d8x4 with a 80' range increment.

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?

Silver Crusade

Mark what would you price a Rod of Maximize Channel and a rod of Empower Channel? 3 x a day like other Metamagic rods.

Silver Crusade

James, what do you think that the Whispering Tyrant think of some upstart Tyrant[LE arch type] Drow Paladin trying to take over Ustalav
In one of my groups home games this is happening. The GM is a first time GM he has started off very good IMO I would like to help him out as he is only 15 and I think he has the tools to be a good GM.

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.

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.
