Dhyr, do not take a fighters weapons away. When the party enters the town the gate guards peace string the weapons which usually Involves wrapping the scabbard and pommel of the weapon in bright string and sealing it with a wax stamp.
why would a fighter who has spent a wagon load of gold on his bright shiny magic sword hand it over to some yokel gate guard and if the gate guard tried to take it away from him the fighter would be justified in running the gate guard through.
The way to handle casters is to hand them a hand bill showing the penaties
James, I wanted to thank pazio for the ACG it isw a great book with lots of potential I really like the Slayer, Bloodrager, Swashbuckler and the Hunter.
Now on to my question. Can you explain why when Pazio puts feat taxes in martial feats that have nothing to do with the feat it self. Example the great new feat Pack Flanking has the feat Combat expertise which has a prereq of int of 13. This makes it real hard to take the feat in a lot of builds if you are limited to a 20 point build. I don't see them same feat taxes for casting classes. Maybe that is because I have not delved too deeply in to caster classes other than Magus's and Bloodragers.
Question 2: Would you ask Jason to consider letting the weapons training ability that fighters and some others get substitute for Weapons Focus as a prerequisite for feats that require Weapons focus as a prerequisite.
Also I would like to tell you that you did a great job on the Technology guide. there was only one item that I did not like and that was powered armor. Most of what I did not like was having to refer to other sections of the book to look up abilities.
IMO all magic item descriptions
should be able to fit on a 3x5 or 4x6 index card but that is just my own individual quirk because that is what my GM in my formative gaming years did.
Pazio is really rocking with great content for Pathfinder!!
I have a question on the Slayer's Studied Target ability. In the changes that were announced between the finial play test and ACG release.
It was announced that the action economy was changed from a move action to a swift action. This change does not seem to be in the ACG is this an editing problem or did Pazio change it again.
Vital strike and shocking grasp work quite well together if you are a magus
Tels and Alexander, use some common sense. If you want to use a fencing weapon and use dex damage, you can't wield a rapier with two hands the weapon is not designed for it. There was only one 2-handed pricing weapon it was from Italy it was an Estoc, it had a tri-corner blade and was designed to be thrust through the gaps n plate armor.
Hi James, I have a question for you. Why do you think some Pathfinder gamers only play with core rules and the PRD?
I find that these type of gamers complain the loudest on things like dex to damage and other things. Most of this catagory of gamers are younger
I don't understand if they find a hole in the rules that they think needs plugging for their group, they should sit down as a group and write a feat or other ability that they all agree on and use it instead of loudly whining on the boards. That is the wonderful thing about Pathfinder it allows creativity from its players.
I think that the group that only plays with core rules tend not to buy other pazio products and only use free stuff.
Could I get some feedback on a new teamwork feat that I made,
Prerequsites: +4 BAB and one other team work feat
James could you comment on this homebrew team work feat.
Prerequsites: +4 BAB, Out Flank
What would be a better way to build a paladin for smiting with maul / large hammer with reach concept.
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.
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
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
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.
Eric would consider doing a mini line that comprised all of the Iconics,
On an unrelated topic, does White Estrid have any siblings?
James does White Estrid have any siblings?
I am trying to do backstory for a Bloodrager who is a Angel touch aasimar
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.
I should explain further what I am suggesting. If you come from Tien-Xia
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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?
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.
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?
Impact AoMF is not the same as Strong Jaw. AoMF W/impact only increases
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.
Point Blank Master [Custom]
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]
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.
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.
