I am finding that once you have the basics down if I had any complaint at least in the first 7 levels is how little choice I have. The low level list is fairly short for each element and I am hoping the future will see them expand some to give more options. I will see how it will play out in my new game that is starting this weekend.

Same feeling here, if you don't want to use the blast for melee the first few inufusion choices are pretty limited.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but i thought burn was 1 point of non-lethal per HD. so wouldn't that would actually make force ward -18 HP for +15 HP?

You're right 3 burn at 6 lvl is 18 hp.

IM starting this thread to explain that Skinsend does not work with Touch Injection.

Touch Injection: The held substance drains from its container into a magical sac in your body.

Your BODY not your skin... your body.

Skinsend peels your skin OFF your body. since the magical sac is inside your body, touching someone with the peeled off skin would not discharge the potion/elixir.

This isn't the combo people have been talking about over a year is done. The point is to put the infused skin send extract in your sack then make the dragons skin vacate his body along with half his hit points with no saving throw.

Edit changed infusion to extract

Take a look at Goliath Druid, maybe with a one level dip in Ranger to grab shape shifting hunter. For mythic you can dual path Guardian and Heriophant at 1st tier to increase survivability.

Grenadier Alchemist adds alchemical items to arrows so making those there is a big cost savings over the slow burn arrows. Any alchemist can take the explosive missle discovery which lets you add bombs. You may be able to stack both on a slow burn arrow depending on wording.

I thought Unchained options were unavailable in Core games. Am i incorrect?

Not according to this post. Has there been a more recent ruling that overturned this one?
i stated earlier i didn't know if this was for PFS or not.
The title of the thread gave that away.

And the first sentence.

To give some perspective on the advice consider the following.

Multiclassing is generally considered weaker than staying in a single class.

In Unchained three classes were redone making them closer to the rest of the classes power wise. One was reduced in power the other two were increased in power. Monk and Rogue were the ones that needed help.

Between the release of the core rulebook and unchained several items, and archetypes were released to help the Rouge and Monk. They still needed reworking. By playing core you don't even get access to these upgrades.

Overall play what you want. I have players that have enjoyed that combo. I have enjoyed that combo. You just have to manage your expectations.

I was reading the latest update an two questions came up.

In the fast play rules there are bonues to capture a distracted or injured monster. Is that just to represent the change in spell DC and possibility of status effects like shaken and sicken in the full rules or were additional modifiers left out of the full rules?

I noticed that Giants and Ogres were not listed in the index for monsters not found here. Are their auras considered too complex even with no class levels. Is the general distinction monstrous humanoid with no class levels OK, humanoid regardless of class levels not OK?

Edit:
One additional question I assume the spells granted by the monster summoning trainer perk are available to cast regardless of active monsters. Is this correct?

I would love if this was a lot more of a Factotum or Chameleon. The ability to switch personas and abilities in useful ways not duplicated by a skill check would give it a unique design space. If nothing else maybe we will get an archtype that will do this.

I think talents could be improved more and still include an extra tslent feat just include appropriate vigilante level requirments on the tslents and put a limit on how often it could be taken such as 1 time for every 5 levels.

I think on the main thread (page 1 or 2)it was clarified that warlock casting is arcane and does have ASF but they were considering adding a talent to ignore ASF in light armour.

That would be counterproductive to consolidating the Guide, IMO, and it highlights why this isn't an easy thing to do. Prestige Points aren't just useful for getting free items, and they need an entire section to describe them. If you add a 4th bullet point concerning just Prestige Points, you're reprinting something that's already been covered elsewhere, and more pages accumulate.

Add the bullet point then reference to the table/chart just like points 1 and 2. That way when someone looks for a big heading on purchasing they can read these 4 or 5 points and know both the number of ways to get items and where to look for the full rules. The guide should be written for the player prepping for his or her first game or excited about her second one instead of those of us who have been here for the entire run.

This is one of the first things I thought of when looking a the ACG.

Wolverene:Dwarf Abyssal Bloodrager (Spelleater, Untouchable Rager, Primalist?) 2+, Fighter (Unbreakable) 1

Favored bonus to Bloodrage rounds
Trait: Glory of Old,?
Feats: Raging Vitality, Fast Healer, Steel Soul, Power Attack, flavor to taste

A no need for CHA, clawed, invulnerable, regenerating Bloodrager with a ton of Bloodrage rounds.

Or, to rephrase: it depends where she's kissing.

Where she is kissing does not make me want it to happen any faster. In point of fact, I'm all for said kissing to take a long long time.

Sometime the spirit is willing but the flesh is spongy and bruised so it may need to be a quick kiss

Any other details or tidbits on the Monster Tactician? How does it compare to Rite publishing's Celestial Commander?

Back in the early months of 3.0 I had a character with 20 dex and improved ininative. For almost 4 whole levels (5-8 3/4) he went on 10. It became a running joke that I or or evenualy others would announce that I go on double digits because I can't go on singles anymore. At this point I think ties to init were settled by Wisdom mods so when the multiple characters with +1 to +3 init mods went on 10 I went after them.

Different feats the 10th level feat

Improved share spells is in the APG and not a teamwork feat.

Improved spell sharing does not have a level requirment is in the ACG and is a teamwork feat.

If you can deal without Share Spells, give the Companion the Bodyguard archetype (have to make sure you are willing to give up personal spells on the AC) and Combat Reflexes and Bodyguard, so it can give you +4 AC as an AoO. At 3rd level, it always acts in surprise round, so lookout always procs for a full round action.

You can use the improved spell sharing teamwork feat to cover a lot of the loss of share spells.

Look at Mystical Kingdom of Monsters. It is focused on monster capturing. It has a base class, archetypes, feats, a large bestiary and the beginnings of a setting to use it all.
