Owen would'nt be easier to give mythic Magus component freedom somatic as a class feature and delete the sentence requiring a magus to have one hand free to cast from spell combat.

Silver Crusade

Mark, with the new cohort rules can if you take the cohort feats can your AC take class levels.

This is another AC Question. Why do AC's have to take light/med armor proficiencies to take heavy armor proficiency? its not like the AC goes to the armorer and buys armor trains with it like a fighter. The AC's master buys the armor the master wants it to wear. The master should be required to have the armor proficiency he wants to train his AC in.

This is a question On Mithril Armor. Why did Paizo gimp mithril armor.
If Mithril armor counts as one category lighter then logically it should also require the same proficiency that it it is reduced to.

Plate armor is much easier to wear fight in than any med armor any way the only reason plate armor was not more wide spread in usage was that it was very expensive to make.

Silver Crusade

Mark I am trying to port over a race from another game. This race has a racial jumping and leaping ability that lets them jump/leap 15' vertical by 20' Horizontally as part of a move action. How would you suggest that I write this up so it makes sense in pathfinder lingo.

Silver Crusade

Hi James, I have a few setting questions today.
1: What is Qudria's relationship with the rest of the Empire and is the Empire going to be detailed at some point?

2:Would it be possible to do a setting book based on the geopolitics of the inner sea nations?

3: In the mythic book there is a universial ability that gives the character the ability to grant spells to followers. Is that how one becomes an Emperyal Lord?

4:This is not a setting question would it be possible for Paizo and lone wolf to work together to get digital renderings of Paizo art for people to use for their characters I would gladly pay $20 to $30 for a set of art work to use for my characters in hero lab.

5: Who is yo favorite iconic from the new Occult Book?

6: Almost forgot would it be possible for Paizo to record the official Paizo seminars and do a subscription web cast for those of us that are not able to go to Paizo Con?

James, I have a setting/{FS question for you. In a world where there is raise dead/res magic how do you permanently kill someone?
I am asking this in regards to the phony traitorous VC/ Decemvirate member in Eyes of the Ten.

Have you Read the Nine Prices of Amber Series? If so how would you create a set of cards similar Magic trump cards the major characters used to communicate with.

Is there something similar to Morganti weapons from the Vlad Taltos novels by Steven Brust in Golarion.

Silver Crusade

Mark, for advanced firearms why do you have to buy metal cartridges and bullets why not just buy a single unit and charge one price per bullet based on what the bullet is made out of it makes more sense and cuts down on paper work. also it would make loading endless bandoleers in herolab
easier.

Silver Crusade

Mark, what would happen to a small mouser swashbuckler that was in the same square as a huge dire croc when the dire croc dies after being stuck by said mouser. Would the mouser need to make a reflex save to avoid being smashed to goo by the Dire croc.

This happened in last nights game The overflow archives.

My sister raises the yummist pigs that make the best bacon that I have ever had it tastes nothing like store bought bacon. FFA Pigs make the best bacon as they are fed very high quality food so they can make weight for the auction. Then they go to the great bacon factory and to my frying pan and are made into BLT's.

Hi Scott, What do you do when you draw a table of characters that have no skills and a max intelligence of 10.

One of the characters figured out that the sly fox was the sly fox when he was in the scriptorum as the real master of scrolls said he had to meet with Vaslin to organize a cleanup of the overflow archive. Truth beats lies every time. Then the dummies ah PC's pounded the sly fox into goo and were almost killed by the dire croc who had barbarian num nums. the party missed the tooth fairy fight as they did not go to that area of the archives.

I had a hard time interrupting the maps. Please refrain from drawing maps set at 45 degree angles they are hard to draw if you wnat to put them in a mod cordinate with the part of pazio that does flip mats.
Hint this would make a great flip mat.

I was very disapointed with the treasure that you put in this scenario
there were many unique items hat the PC's could have found but you just stuck mundane carpola items for treasure. Cool items would have been a misfiled book that told the society where to get the intelligent broken sword. Knighton could of had the PC's turning the overflow archive over to find an expensive spell book that the sly fox had swiped. Zarta could have had the PC's looking for some bit of esoterica in the archive.

THe Owl and the Albatross were great.

Silver Crusade

James, When I think of Great Orc's they are simular to Uruk Hai orcs.

Silver Crusade

1 person marked this as a favorite.

James, I asked Crystal this in her thread but I will also ask you as you are in charge of creation. Why are there no Great Orcs in Golarion?

What is your favorite forest on Golarion? Who is your favorite Ranger, Hunter and Druid?

Who is your favorite personage in Cheliax? Is the Cheliaxian capitol going to be detailed in the new AP or any where else soon?

Is Casmoron going to be detailed anytime in the near future?

Silver Crusade

Crystal, do you know why Pazio does not have a great orc race [Urukk Hai Orc].

Do you draw your avatar's art work she of the unspellable name.

Is Merisel's voice as sexy as yours? Why are Merisel's ears so big? They are not proportioned like legolas's ears. Does Merisel get a perception bonus for having such large beautiful ears. "Glances over shoulder to check if Merisel is behind me."

Silver Crusade

Hi all, I was wondering what you all think of groups like the Tides Foundation and the George Soros foundation funding outside agitators to go into places like Baltimore and other places that are experiencing civil unrest/rioting often for good reasons and stiring up the locals
where the locals might wind down after blowing off some steam, instead keeping the locals at a fever pitch.

If we had a real DOJ they would investigate these groups just like they are investigating the Police in those cities. The DOJ also needs to investigate the local Pols in those cities as they are Responsible for setting the patterns and practices of the police departments in their cities.

James, could Pazio do a couple of modules that are the inverse of Hell's Rebels where the players play characters that hunt down the disloyal rebels.

Silver Crusade

James, do any of the inner sea countries have trade guilds? Do any of the have thieves guilds or assassins guilds or mages guilds.

Silver Crusade

Mark how would you price a weapons enchantment that did the same thing as a rod of lesser metamagic?

Silver Crusade

Action economy question, as a full round action can you spell strike and vital strike the same target?

Silver Crusade

Hi Mark, I was just comparing Fly by Attack and Spring attack they both do the same thing for different modes of movement, why does Spring attack
take 3 feats but flyby attack only requires one feat?

Silver Crusade

James, does Golarian have Undercities?
DO any Kellid tribes have an affinity for thunder and lightning?

Silver Crusade

Mark the scaling item boots of Elven Spirit is scaled as a bauble. If the scale was wounder could you decrease the unlocks by 2/3?

Silver Crusade

Mark, I have a question for you. You and the design team came up with a great idea with scaling items but you tied is to the worst mechanic in the game, the WBL concept. The WBL idea and the cost of magic items were not designed by the same people in 3.5 and bear no relation to each other.

The cost of staffs rods and wands and the WBL don't work together IMO
the cost to craft should be about a third of what they are now. The crafting levels should be reduced by 1/2 if you are not going to make material above 10th level for a majority of your product line.

Rings are the best priced items in the game, the same goes per armor followed by weapons.

The blog that you released for scaling is very confusing and highly math intensive.

I think it would much simpler to make scaling items as far as arms and armor go work simular to the black blade. If you want to keep it tied too the WBL simply use the Black blade progression for the 10% increase the progression for 20% and a 30%.

I just really dislike the whole WBL idea and think that is damages the whole pathfinder line.

I have not seen what you have for scaling items as I have not got my book yet I will get at my FLGS on the 29th.

BTW I am really looking forward to unchained I think from what I have read about it so far is that It will be the best book released to date.

Silver Crusade

Mark I have an unchained question for you, I don't have my book yet boo can't wait till the 29th.

Would you see any problems with swapping the old rage mechanic in the Bloodrager with the new rage mechanic in the unchained barbarian?

Silver Crusade

HI James, I have a company related question for you. Who at Pazio handles Hero Lab Licensing questions?

Silver Crusade

Comrade Anklebiter, this is my initial post in your thread. The salutation comrade is no longer in vogue in the former commie land of Russia. The new updated salutation among the Oprichnina is Pavakovnic.

Silver Crusade

James, why are the Aspis agents sch puds? They seem to be just placed for pathfinder agents to lay waste to them. They are not scary in the least. They seem to me just a weak plot device. In the Campaign world where I cut my teeth in there was a bad guy group that was to be feared and avoided unless you had to go against them for a very food reason.

They were the Black Lotus Society. Their nominial leader Aaos the mad god was a god. Their leaders were high level mages 12-20th level types
who did not have any wealth by level thingys they were equipped as good or better than the players who had a great deal of magic kaboom as the world was very high magic. The head of the BLS enforcement arm is a Multi-class fighter lighting mage a multi-souled Krag giant. the 2nd in command of the BLS Military wing is a 15th Lead Golem he once was and still is a 15th level fighter. Who was another of the Dark ones experiments all he said was "Was better lead than Dead".

These guys were terrifying to think of encountering let alone fighting.
The snakes just seem to be put out to be ridiculed and stomped on.

Give us some real real bad guys to make us worry about.

The above was a paid advertisement by the BLS. Approved by the Dark One.

Silver Crusade

Cosmo, have they released you from the penalty box yet?

Is it your fault that I can only see part of the site when I am signed on?

Silver Crusade

Since Crystal knows all, can you tell me why Cosmo is not posting in his thread? Is he being held hostage in the Paizo Office just so everyone can blame him for their problems?

Back to a pizza alignment question what is a peperoni and red onion pizza's alignment.

Silver Crusade

I am not sure if there is a combat maneuver to do this. My character was standing on a Mythic colossal roc last night I was wondering if my character could stick his great sword into the roc and keep it impaled into the roc and do continuous elemental and strength damage to the roc.

Silver Crusade

Is Cosmo actually a real person? I have not seen him post in his OWN thread. Is James holding him hostage in the Paizo Office unable to get to a computer. Denying him food and water. I call on Wes to free Cosmo So his electronic minions can hear from their overlord again. FREE COSMO!!
FREE COSMO!!FREE COSMO!!

Mark, I am making a new armor enchantment called Quickness this enchantment simply removes the slows function from heavier armors.

How much would you charge for this I was thinking in the range between 2500gp and 5000gp?

I am glad you escaped from the vile clutches of Cosmo last week. He was planing on charging us $50 a post of yours for his Gencon vacation fund.

I also have a few weapons questions for you. What would the stats be for sword breaker the iconic swashbuckler is using?

Have you heard of a weapon called a Nagamaki? I am tying to stat it up as I think it is a very cool weapon. It is like a nodachi but it has a thicker longer blade and a longer handle. I was thinking of 1d10 or 1d12 18-20x2, what do you think? The weapon was used in the edo period by foot troops against mounted samurai. Sometime it was used by mount troops that wanted a reach weapon.

Silver Crusade

You guys are wrong worm that walks is not a swarm creature. It has a monster ability to turn into a swarm. If it gets hit by a smite evil it takes full smite damage. Smite damage is just like the divine damage done by a flame strike that is why it cuts through all dr if the target is evil.

Silver Crusade

In light of today FAQ can the design team add Shadow strike to the Rogue and slayer talent list please.

Silver Crusade

Hi Mark, I have a item Pricing question. Item is a Reliquary pouch.
a cloth or mail pouch with your deity’s holy symbol on it. You place a potion or scroll in it and you tap the pouch as a swift action and it releases the magic of the potion or scroll and it effects the wearer of the pouch.

Silver Crusade

adjacent squares are the 4 squares that are boardering the square that you are in if you are a medium sized creature. The same goes if you are using a hex map then it would be the six squares that boarder the hex that you are in. adjacent squares if you are mounted are the squares that are boardering the 5x10 space your mount takes up.

Silver Crusade

LazerX, IMO you are incorrect. As long as the Magus sword or black blade is at least +1 he can spend any amount of arcane pool points to enhance the swords to hit bonus or use the arcane pool to add any of the enhancements such as flaming by spending 1 arcane point for flaming or 2 for flaming burst.

You do not have to a +2 weapon to use flaming burst. you have to have a +1 slashing weapon or a blackblade and spend 2 points from your arcane pool or 3 if your smart and buy the enduring blade arcana.

The weapon enhancements provided by the Magi's Arcane pool follow the standard rules for magic weapon enhancement except they are temporary
you do not have to have a +5/+5 weapon to put the vorpal weapons enhancement on it it just requires a +1 weapon.

Silver Crusade

In last nights game this happened we used the 2 round grab and maintain.
Target was grabbed in the surprise round and the Wyvern had the highest Initiative nat 20 on the die so the wyvern was flying away after maintaining grapple.

The wyvern successfully grabbed and maintained his grip on the hapless magus as he was flying away with his paralyzed meal to be he was hit by grease and failed to maintain his grip on his meal to be. Hence he dropped his meal from 40' meal who went splat for 20 points of damage.
The Wyvern still had movement left and tried an Imelman but rolled a 1 on his fly check and crashed on top of his meal and was shot dead by the gunslinger. My question how much additional damage should I have applied to the 3 characters that the wyvern crash landed on from a height of 40'.

Silver Crusade

Mark I am making a hunter archetype called the Blessed Healer. His spell casting is reduced to the Paladin spell progression in return he gains the lay on the hands ability of the paladin and a heal companion by touch for a number of times per day equal to his charisma modifier at level 7
at level 3 he gains an ability soothe the savage beast. Remove fear a number of times per day = to the blessed healers level range 30'

What do you think?

Silver Crusade

Mark, in forthcoming products could you add feats for fighters barbarians and bloodragers that do not require a 13+ intelligence and combat expertise. IMO Combat Expertise is the worst feat tax in Pathfinder.

It would be nice to have more feats for 2 handed weapons. It seems to me Paizo of late has concentrated on niche feats for melee combatants instead of more general feats that rely on muscle and combat power.

Silver Crusade

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I just picked this up and I am disappointed in it. There is not one feat for fighters, barbarians or bloodragers that are 2-handed weapon fighters.

Its chock full of feats that require a 13+ intelligence. Intelligence and charisma are dump stats for most martials who are not dual class casters.

Would it have been very hard to add combat feats for 2-handed fighters?

You add two pages of feats for monks who are not really martials but their own unique class and should have been covered in their own book of monk goodness for those who like monks.

The Bloodrager arch type is already covered by the brawler or monk.

Why should you have to have combat expertise to pull your opponents shield aside so you comrade can get a strike vs. his unshielded AC.
it is a great feat with the exception of the gross feat tax of combat expertise.

How about a feat like
Torn Asunder: requires BAB +5; Improved Sunder; Strength 16+
You target you opponents shield with a mighty sundering attack. You make a standard attack vs. your opponents AC if you hit you deal double
damage vs. your opponents shield.

All excess damage is passed on to the opponent.

Silver Crusade

Could an outsider that has the ability to gate in other outsiders, use his gating power to gate a native outsider that is known to him to his location?

Silver Crusade

Mark, could you talk with the other rules developers and come up with another feat to replace combat expertise for teamwork feats and most other combat feats in general. It is one of the worst feat taxes in the game as in punishes martial characters in most builds requiring them to have an intelligence of 13. There is no feat tax like that for a casters to have a physical stat of 13. I could make an argument that it would make more sense for an arcane caster to have a con of 13+ as casting is hard on the body.

DO you know if Paizo has ever thought of using a Mana system in place of the current spell system? I think mana systems work far better for casters than current system.

an ex. a an el 10 wizard would have 13 [con]+20 intelligence+[10x4] for a total of 73 mana to spend for their spells. a fire ball would cost 5 mana to cast. it makes meta magic easier for instance maximized fire ball would cost 20 mana to cast. A Mana system makes it easier to load wands and staffs it simply cost 3x the amount of mana to load a staff or wand.

Silver Crusade

Is the Queen going to make future appearances with Count Varian? Radovan needs to be lucky in love.

Silver Crusade *

I like Sebastian Hirsch's idea of the Monstrous Mount Feat.
GM Lamplighter I also like your Idea about the Faction cards both work well IMO. Thanks for your good ideas.

Silver Crusade

Mark when will the FAQ come out for the Bolt Ace?

Mark would a fire arm that uses metal rounds that has higher damage but a restricted rate of fire and does not use the touch AC mechanic but use the standard rules for combat work.

Example big game rifle. This is a double barreled rife it has a rate of fire of 2 rounds per melee round. The rifle does not have the -4 penalty to hit for firing both barrels and it can not be used with the rapid reload feat or the gunslinger deed that increase the rate of fire.
Rifle does 2d12 19-20x4

Silver Crusade

Buy Rune Stones of Power they function the same for spontaneous casters as pearls of power for memorized casters.

Silver Crusade *

Feral, I think you are missing my main point. PFS is a marketing tool for Paizo to get new players into the game and. To market its products to stablished gamers. If Mike and John piss off established gamers that sped $100 or more a month by banning good things from new material it will hurt the bottom line of Pazio's revenue stream. I do not want to see that happen as I like Pazio's high quality new material.

I do get miffed when I buy a product to use inPFS and things are banned before they are even tested. SLA's were banned for a good reason people were gaming the system with them to get into PRC's early.

Bears should start at medium and at 7th get a size advancement. No druid, ranger or hunter would take a cub adventuring AC's are not throw away meat shields and pc's who use them as such should be punished in game by their gods for doing so.

Silver Crusade

Hi James, I need your help who at Paizo would I direct a complaint about material being banned in PFS. The person that oversees Mike Brock.

For the most part the PFS guys do a great job but I am tired of them banning certain material mainly the material that I really like from being used IN PFS. Their latest offense against animals is banning the Warcat of Rull. I would not be so bent but I spent $20.00 on the book that It was in and now I can not use it because it was deemed overpowered.

Have you seen the artwork for this cool kitty it is just over the top.
I even bought a mini that resembles it somewhat. The Warcat of Rull just deserves to be used by animal loving PC's through out Golarion.

PS I am waiting for next months release of Pathfinder Unchained and will buy it as soon as it hits the shelves at my local game store.

Silver Crusade *

Mekkis, what do you consider broken or overpowered. IMO the Warcat of Rull is neither. The only things that I have seen that are broken are the Summoner and high level gunslingers with ricochet shot. I do not even think that ricochet shot is broken it is just annoying for the GM.

IMO most of what I see on the boards as what people think is over powered is not over powered at all is that those people just prefer a low or no magic game and think because they like their games that way we all should like are games that way. I my self am on the other end of the spectrum I prefer a high powered high magic game. You should never be able to over power the GM just out think him.

As to why I think the Warcat of Rull is cool has nothing to do with the numbers but just what it looks like in the artwork. It would be nice for a mounted character but me myself would not use it for one as the mounted rules for pathfinder suck greatly.

Gm Lamplighter by that same logic you stated above all 5th level or higher magic should be banned because it does too much damage. After all
Disintegrate does 22d6 at 11th level. You are trying to limit a third of at least three classes because you find them too powerful. There are other ways to limit powerful critters other than banning them make a palyer take an archetype that trades something else in his class for a better pet take a whole PRC that is pet based more so than the Hunter.

This ban has ticked me off to the point that I am going to write to Vic and James Jacobs about it because I am tired of buying books and having the things that I like banned so that I can not use the in Pazio's Marketing game PFS and I hate boons as I can not get them because I cnat afford to goto conventions and buy products too.
