Silver Crusade

James can you give us a hint on what powered armor can do. Does Powered armor have targeting systems? What kind of Resistences DR Etc.

Silver Crusade

Raving, if the item is for a home game just price what ever you as the GM thinks it should cost. For a lot of items in the books they just pulled the price out of the sky. IMO wands ad staffs are very over priced. Rings are close to what I think they should be priced and arms and armor are about right except for resistececs with are IMO about 50% over priced.

Silver Crusade

In the future would it be possible to include a write up for monsters in the Pathfinder encounter series in the box with the minis? I really like the figures but don't want to have to spend $25 to buy one book in the adventure path to get the stats for 2 monsters. Would Pazio consider doing a small besstiery that has the encounter series monsters and some additional content I would buy one of those in a hot second.

Silver Crusade

With the release of the Thrune Agent mini in the Wrath of the Righteous set could the rules developers stat the 2 handed mace that he is armed with so it can be used in PFS. I would suggest that it be 1d12 x3 or 2d6 x3 cost 30gp. This would make roughly equal the great ax or the 2-handed sword.

Silver Crusade

Eric now that the Thrune Agent Mini has been Released could you get the rules guys to stat the 2-handed mace that he is using so I can use it in PFS? The figure is beyond cool. I am using it for my new slayer character.

Silver Crusade

Marc and Wolgang are the files for Hero lab out yet?

Silver Crusade

Has the PC in question derived any benefit from the contract? IF not why not, most of the time it requires the devil to grant a boon to the signatory of the contract. Contracts that do not expire are invalid you have to give something to get something.

I have a character that bargained with the BIG MAN himself and fulfilled the terms of the contract to the letter and he was Promoted to a full Devil as the big guy was very pleased with my character as in fulfilling the contract he thwarted a plan of Mammon's and let Asmodeus Lord Mammon's failure over him.

Silver Crusade

This is a more of a setting question. Do Rangers, Hunters and Druids breed and crossbreed animal companions in Golarion? If so are there rules for it? Can Animal companions be crossbred with Magical Beasts?

Silver Crusade

We have had 2 sets featuring evil outsiders how about a set featuring Good outsiders and hero's maybe throw in some antihero's badguy sculpts say abut 40 good outsiders and hero's and 15 badguys [non-outsiders]

I rally liked the death demon and the incubus from this set for the bad guys and the inquisitor iconic for the good guys.

Silver Crusade *

Is the Eyes of the Ten going to be Retired ? John and Mike if it is could you issue errata for scenarios in seasons 0-2 eliminating

:
Adril Hestrom and replacing this Despicable traitors name with that of nother VC]

Silver Crusade

Does anyone know the name of the trait that allows for the use of one eastern exotic weapon as a non-exotic weapon?

Silver Crusade

Why don't you use a Runestone it is much easier for Sorc to use as that is what they are designed for. They do the same thing as a pearl of power for a spontaneous caster.

Silver Crusade

Wolfgang or Marc, what is up with the PDF every time I try to change pages it takes several seconds. None of my other PDFS do this. Do you have any idea what is causing this to happen.

From what I have read content wise it is very good.

Are there Herolab files for the various classes. I am really looking for the spell-less ranger and the skin changer.

Silver Crusade *

If you are going to give out a boon like the owlbear boon please do not nerf it by making it equal to a nerfed animal companion give out the owl bear but make the PC pay for it like a magic item. The boon in this case would be giving access to a unique Animal Companion, even though it had to be paid for.

Silver Crusade

A Helm of opposite alignment will not work on a extra planer creature as the extra planer creatures alignment is only on portion of its being the larger portion of it being is the energy of its plane. that makes it alignment unchangeable by magical means. You can have redeemed demons but that is done by the freewill of the demon just as you can have a fallen angels, again by the free will of the angel.

Silver Crusade

Hoplites used spears or long spears not Pilums. Roman's used Pilums.

Silver Crusade

Ran into that situation in the season 4 mod with my Paladin. I used diplomacy. I talked to the angel, I convinced him of the need to go into the crypt and retrieve the Mc guffin by having him use zone of truth on me to prove to him my intent was truthful and told him I would only take the object that we needed to complete our mission. After the party entered we engaged the bad guys they left and found one very pissed of angel and he uncorked holy whip ass on them.

Silver Crusade

how hard would it be for Pazio to release its books in IBOOK format as well as PDF? I like the navigation in IBOOK a lot more than PDF Format.

Silver Crusade *

except dinosaurs and megafauna (unless already allowed in this document in Bestiary 1, Bestiary 2, Bestiary 3, or Ultimate Equipment) and dire animals.

does the except dinos and Meagfauna [broken by the parentheses] and dire animals mean dire animals are not legal?

If so I feel this a real nerf for animal companion classes if you can by magic items that duplicate class skills or add to attributes why not be able to buy a big animal. It could be easily limited to having to have a chronicle sheet where you go to the Malwangi expanse[excuse spelling]for dinos or to the land of the mammoth lords for dire animals and mega fanua.

Think of Dire animals or Dinos as living magic items for classes that have animal companions.

Silver Crusade

Could a new arch-type type be added for the Hunter for rangeleing Meagfauna and Dire Animals?

Silver Crusade *

here is the quote from the additional resources I don't understand it could some one clarify it for me.

Animals: all animal companions on pages 28–29 are legal for purchase. Animals on pages 14–15 are legal for purchase except dinosaurs and megafauna (unless already allowed in this document in Bestiary 1, Bestiary 2, Bestiary 3, or Ultimate Equipment) and dire animals. Additionally, only creatures of the animal type of size Large and smaller may be purchased. Goblin dog is restricted for purchase and only available to goblin PCs; Equipment: all equipment on pages 12–13 are legal except barding stitches, fury drops, and poison

Silver Crusade *

Ryan, are you completely crazy, the price of magic items is all ready out of whack with the WBL expectations by level. I just retired a my magus and was only able to by a staff at 13th level that's just ridiculous. If you want to play a low no magic game thats fine but don't try to ruin the fun for those of us who like a med to high magic game by further limiting
what we can buy with the meager resources the society provides its agents.

I would make NPC's a 20 point buy for creation. I would also give NPC's
greater access to consumables and staffs and wands of higher caster.

I would actually give out good boons not boons that are nerfed like the owlbear boon and

:
the intelligent magic sword that is broken and cannot be fixed.
Mike if you are going to give out a boon like the owl bear boon limit it to a scenario that is 4th level or above so the boon is just not cosmetic and limited further by tying it to an AC that has been hit so hard by the nerf bat that it is not playable. Note Mike it is not your fault that the Bear AC has been hosed that the faults rules guys who listened to a bunch of Whiney players who cry if they think something is to powerful. see above [Ryan's attempting to nerf buying magic items]

Silver Crusade *

Why was the rule changed from PF Core rules on casting spells with an evil descriptor for PFS being an alignment infraction?

This was not in PFS but in a standard campaign of council of thieves. I had an Inquisitor of Asmodeus that started the game as lawful nutural and by casting Infernal Healing at every opportunity began his slide to lawful evil. {this was in a council of thieves game] Culminating in entering nto an infernal Pact with his patron with his patron an becoming a Devil in his own right. This was a player decision.

IT seems to me that a large number of players want their actions to have no consequences.

BNW to my knowledge there are only 2 or 3 countries in the inner sea that ban or restrict religion or practitioners there of. 2 of the countires just ban conversions or preaching if you are a cleric or paladin just don't do the proscribed acts and you will be OK.

Alot of Mcguffins are evil or used for evil purposes so how is removing
them from the world wrong or evil.

There are a few scenarios that I had to avoid with my Paladin PC's the one to GEB and a few others. Just try to play your paladins good and virtuous and you will not have a problem.

Silver Crusade *

It seems to me the DEVS have said that there is to no PC's of Evil alignment. Practicing necromancy is an evil act, all spells that deal with controlling and raising/creating undead have an evil descriptor and if you continually cast them it will shift your alignment to one of the evil alignment types and render your character non playable in PFS. Necromancers do not qualify for atonement as they are willingly committing evil acts when they cast their spells.

Some classes just do not work well in PFS because of how the DEVS want the Society to work. IMO some people try to shoehorn characters who are evil IE Necromancers or just want to play evil typed characters into the society and think other players should adapt to their way of playing by not playing Paladins or good clerics is IMO selfish. One of my Characters is a Paladin of Iomedae with the Undead Destroyer archtype and I have never had any problems with any PC that I have run with nor ever had to switch him out and he has 2 more scenarios to go for retirement.

Silver Crusade

I have GM'ed and played with a friend that ran his gunslinger thru retirement. My only problem with the class is the Ricochet shot deed.

Many posters complain about the Touch AC Mechanic that Pazio choose to use for Gunslingers. Most of these people know nothing about guns and how they work. If you do not use the Touch AC mechanic then you have to create a AC penetration by the weapons caliber and range for instance a .44 mag would get a +5 to hit AC 25 and below with in 30' this would fall off to +5 to hit vs ac 22 out to 100 yards. A .69 cal musket would get a +5 bonus to hit AC 18 and below and this would drop to ac 14 out to 100 yards also the damage increases for a musket to 4d6x4 then would drop to 1d12 out to 100 yards. This is taken from another RPG game that both magic and Tech and they worked very well together.

Silver Crusade

How could my Magus ward his staff and wand case to prevent it from being effect by repel wood from effecting the wands in the case or the Staff?

Silver Crusade

Dave one of Radovan's love Interests

Spoiler:
needs to snare him perhaps the Inquisitor of Calistra needs to come back and snare Radovan.

I just read your 2011 book set in Egorian I really liked it and was sad when The heroine was hung at the end of the story but fully understood why it happened it was in Egorian after all.

Silver Crusade

Fly so high, your idea that man has only mined one olympic sized swim pool is cracked period. Just in India there are rooms in at two temples that are filled with gold of all types coins statutes etc that would fill a few swimming pools. Just a few years ago when they took apart the super computer at Lawrence Livermore Labs they recovered over 1000 lbs in gold. The Largest gold nugget is 78kg just one nugget. They mine gold 24/7 for years in South Africa, 170 metric tons of gold per year. Largest gold producer China 370 metric tons. World gold production 2700 metric tons of gold.

Silver Crusade

2 people marked this as a favorite.

A few things I that I would do to improve the slayer are:
Add Slayers Charge at 4th level Same as Scouts Charge and at 8th level I would add Skirmisher at 8th and drop Slayers advance. I would also add an advanced talent that changes the Slayers sneak attack dice to d8's.

Silver Crusade

Ladywrym, You left off the 4 most important spells for animal companions
3rd: Strong Jaw, Heal Companion
4th: Stone Skin, Animal Growth

I would also have Flame strike and Ice Storm on the list to give the Hunter some spell based offense.
I would also give the Hunter the basic healing spells at 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th level.

I also would like to see spells to buff tracking, stealth, swim and other out doorsy type things.

Sean I made an alternate Animal companion table could I PM it to you as I do not know how to attach a excel sheet to a post on the board.

Silver Crusade

Davic, I like your United we Stand feat except for the line where the damage you take for you ally bypasses your DR and resistances, that way nerfs the feat and makes it suck real hard to the point I would never take the feat. your asking a PC to give up 4th level spell effects and permanent effects from items. If you strike the DR and resistance line the feat is real good. It is a better version of mounted combat.

Silver Crusade *

Just completed Eyes of the Ten last night.

Spoiler:
The Concord CA. Lodge has 3 new Venture Captains and one PC who is favored of the Ten.

James or Mike I have a question regarding the the last room could I PM it to one of you it is a setting question.

BTW Eyes of the ten is a very good scenario I had a great deal of fun playing it. I encourage everyone who has a PC at retirement to play Eyes of the Ten before it is retired.

Silver Crusade

It seems to me if you want to link the Hunter and his companion more than a Ranger or Druid already do the best way would to make that connection
a Physic Connection.

1st level Putting on the Skin: the hunter/Beastlord gains Physic powers an empathic connection to your animal companion this link allows you to feel and sense what your companion is feeling and sensing. You can link with your companion as a swift action. If your companion is killed while you are linked to him you must make a will save of 15 or be stunned for 1 round. Range is 400 ft +10ft per level.

4th level. Your link with your companion improves you may now see, hear and taste what you companion is sensing and the range starts at 1 mile at 4th level and 1 additional mile per 4 levels.

2nd level the Hunter/Beastlord gains beast speech he learns one animal language [ie bear wolf tiger etc.] and 1 additional animal language per 2 levels.

The Hunter/Beast Lord should gain a flat +1 per level to Survival and Handle animal This would represent his close connection to he land.

At 3rd level the hunter gains a natural healing power he can heal himself or his companion at 1d8 at 3rd level and 1d8 per level there after.

The Hunter/beast lord's Companion would use an alternate Companion table that buffs the Companion about 30% over his 20 levels.
I don't know how to attach and excel spread sheet to this post so if anyone is interested in seeing the table I could PM it to them.

Slayer:Something that allows a better mesh into assassin and red mantis prestige classes. duel weapon specialization. "Red Mantis Initiate"

Zergtitan I would not hold my breath as RMA are Evil and Pazio has stated they will not do Archtypes and PRC's for Evil Characters, RMA are meant to be NPC's that harry the PC's.

Silver Crusade

One thing that I think would help out the hunters AC is to modify the Armor Proficiency feat. AC's should not have to pay a feat tax to wear heavy armor. Animals are trained with the armor their Master selects for them. It makes no rational sense to make a AC learn to wear two types of armor it will never wear to be allowed to wear the armor it will ware.

Greater Share spells with Companion: All Buff and heal spells cast effect both the Hunter and the Hunters companion.

Give the Hunter Favored Terrain at 5th, 10th and 15th level but make it so the Bonuses effect both the hunter and the companion.

Reduce the level of Animal growth to 4th and strong jaw to 3rd as they are on the rangers spell list.

Give the Hunter Favored Target as a swift
and give the Hunter Bane vs favored target at 7th

Silver Crusade

I Would like the warpriest to have a spell combat ability like the magus exactly with the exception of only being able to use one handed melee weapons. as divine and arcane magic are vastly different and the gods would not limit their holy warriors with such a stupid restriction.

On a some what different topic the way spell-combat is written it would preclude using a later written mythic rule Component freedom because of the wording of spell combat and the fact that it is not forward compatible with things pazio might write in the future w/o major errata and just needs to be Stricken from spell combat.

The war priest IMO need t be a divine version of the magus with blessings taking the place of arcana and some good form of combat healing like Lay on the hands that is wisdom based instead of charisma based with a blessing that allows LOH to be used a sort range.

Silver Crusade

Another thing I would suggest is to make the Step up feat chain teamwork feats for the Hunter. Hunters should also have Favored Terrain at 5th 10th and 15th.

Silver Crusade

For the Slayer add the Talents Scouts Charge [low], Viscous Sneak [change sneak attack die to d8] [High] Skirmisher [Med] Armor Master [+2 to Max dex for any armor worn] [Low]

Silver Crusade

Slayer needs access to the Scout Archtype. In fact I would say toss Slayers Advance completely and give the Slayer Scouts charge at 4th and Skirmisher at 8th.

My reasoning is that by the time time the slayer gets slayers advance he already has something that effects his movement and like effects do not stack.

Silver Crusade

At 4th and 8th level give the Slayer the Slayers Charge [Scout Archtype]
and at 8th give them Skirmishing Attack [Scouts 8th level] This would take care of the Slayers need to flank to get sneak attack.

Give the slayer a talent that adds acrobatics and climb to their favored target bonuses.

As slayers are DPR oriented give them and advanced talent that increases their sneak attack die type to d8.

Give the Slayer a mid-level talent that gives them the bonus feat Critical focus.

Silver Crusade

Change Sneak Attack to Skirmishing attack ala Spell-Ranger. Skirmish damage is precision damage that is based on movement rather than flanking or catching your opponent flat footed. keep the same damage progression as the slayer has now.

Silver Crusade

Give the hunter a full AC, by this I mean the regular animal from the beastiaries 1-4. Give the hunter all simple and martial weapons. Every 3rd level give the hunter +2 to handle animal and survival and heal. Give the hunter lay on the hands self and companion only
Give the hunter greater companion link. Give the AC a+2 to one of its stats each 4th level as well as a+2 to its natual ac and multiattack at 7th level.

Reduce spell cast to the ranger progression and add all buff spells. New spell enlarge companion as enlarge person except target is the AC.

Give the hunter one combat style with normal ranger progression. Two favored terrain types from forest, plains, swamps and mountaians. Increase animal aspect to 10min/level and make it an untyped bonus

I think with these changes the hunter would be a great class.

Silver Crusade

Jason and Sean, could you alter the Spell List for the Hunter? Could you lower Animal Growth to 4th level as it is on the Rangers Spell List. As the hunter is a animal based class this would allow Hunters played in PFS to use Animal Growth as it is ow they cannot. Could you also add a New Spell Enlarge Animal same as Enlarge Person but change the Descriptor to Animal [Or Animal Companion to futher restrict the spell.]

Silver Crusade

Jason and Sean, I really like the Hunter Class. Would it be possible
to make an Arch Type for the hunter that limits spell casting and grants
Shape Shifting?

BTW Wolfgang the Spell-Less Ranger is my personal Fav 3rd Party class.
You did a great job with the class.

Silver Crusade

Wolfgang over on the hero lab forums a community contributor has fixed the things in the .hl file for Spell-Less Ranger and would like to post the fixed file for the community to use but needs your permission as the Spell-Less Ranger is a Non-OGL Class. Can you send Mathias an Email if this OK?

On days that Pazio is doing roll outs for things like the new Advanced Class guide play tests that are going to have a large number of hits on the site that are libel to crash the site. Pazio should rent short term space from Rack space or a company like it to temporaily host 6 or so servers to handle the increased traffic so your site does not crash and your store is not off line so you won't loose money from lost sales.

Silver Crusade

If you want to play a ranged Rogue take the Scout arch type from the APG.
At 8th level you gain the Skirmisher ability.

Skirmisher (Ex): At 8th level, whenever a scout moves
more than 10 feet in a round and makes an attack action,
the attack deals sneak attack damage as if the target was
f lat-footed. If the scout makes more than one attack this
turn, this ability only applies to the first attack. Foes with
uncanny dodge are immune to this ability. This ability
replaces improved uncanny dodge.

This really rocks. My rouge dipped into a level of musket master. Now he can do a move action and make his standard attack with his +1 holy musket and deal 1d10+7+[2d6 vs. evil]+5d6 sneak.

No John, Kyle does not roll random dice. He rolls dice behind the screen and chants Hastur 3 times and turns to the right pg in beastiary 4 and viola all his players go insane.

Silver Crusade *

Prestige should be tied to more than buying stuff. For instance in the hell knights feast prestige could have given a PC a bonus vs. one of the npc's from their faction. For instance a taldan could have gotten a bonus vs. the old taldan hag in either knoledge local or diplomacy. It seems to me that our factions do not have much I game use to their members.

If you are expected to earn only 67% of your prestige why is there so much hart burn over wbl?
