By RAW you can't. In fact without the strike back feat you can't even attack a limb or weapon with reach unless you move to a position where you threaten the squares the creature occupies.

But in my opinion as a GM I'd probably allow it. Particularly if there is some effect preventing the fighter from closing with the base of the creature. The fighter could ready an action (to either strike back or grapple). And if the fighter succeeds on the grapple it would pull the creature to an adjacent position.

I just want to state in the updated Ultimate combat pdf: That Lamellar, stone armor was not placed under Lamellar, Iron as stated in the errata sheet. Rather its under Lamellar, Steel and in the medium armor section.

I think it would make for a nice addition to medium armor, and an interesting alternative to the breastplate for Clerics/Druids etc. but I don't think it was intended.

From the pc end, its you use it all the time, or you almost never use it. I have definately see trip, grapple, and dirty trick builds, but they require a significant resource investment to be successful it.

And as you level up the game turns into rocket tag. I get a full attack, then you are dead. Or the wizard hits the target with a save or suck spell and its not doing anything effective anyhow so your extra disabling is meaningless.

The cost is calculated as follows:

(Cost * Spell Level * Caster Level / Charge Cost)

400 * 4 * 8 / 3 = 4267
300 * 4 * 8 / 3 = 3200
200 * 3 * 8 / 2 = 2400
200 * 1 * 8 / 1 = 1600
200 * 1 * 8 / 1 = 1600

4267 + 3200 + 2400 + 1600 + 1600 = 13067

So 13067gp to create. The book rounds to 13,075 but that's reasonable close.

There are no penalties for using primary natural attacks. Not that they are immune to penalties from other sources, just none inherent to making attacks with primary natural weapons.

That's the text as its printed in 3.0 Ultimate Equipment pdf.

There are more than 2 sentences to crane wing. It still deflects when using the full defense action. Its current benefit section reads:

Quote:

When fighting defensively with at least one hand

free, you gain a +4 dodge bonus to AC against melee attacks.
If a melee attack misses you by 4 or less, you lose this dodge
bonus until the beginning of your next turn. If you are using
the total defense action instead, you can deflect one melee
attack that would normally hit you. An attack so deflected
deals no damage and has no other effect (instead treat it as a
miss). You do not expend an action when using this feat, but
you must be aware of the attack and not flat-footed.

However, a lot of people were stacking the Shield Spikes and Bashing property together to get 1D8 and 2D6 damage dice, because they assumed that the Shield Spikes benefit was a more 'inherent' benefit (since it was increased through mundane means, and not magical), and therefore should be grounds for stacking.

Too be fair. A lot of people came from 3.x and its identical rules text in this situation, with an faq that explicitly stated that spiked shield and the bashing property did stack. Since Pathfinder got around to actually making a ruling on it, you'll find fewer people are making that claim.

Just in case your not aware there is an FAQ about Wild Arcana:

Saying its abusive to use the rage powers as intended is like saying its abusive to cast spells, combo invisbility with sneak attack, or use class features.

I wouldn't hesitate to call other rules legal things abusive. I'd called two weapon fighting with double shot pistols abusive (but legal). If I believe you are far exceeding what I believe the author intended when he wrote a rule set, then I believe you're abusing them.

Rules legal or not.

Then you look at the Rage Powers. Why would anyone make them 1/Rage knowing full well that in Pathfinder you can enter/end Rage multiple times in the same encounter.

....Funny that's the exact same question I'd ask you. But I'll answer first.

I would limit something to 1/rage if I expected it to be used once or twice per fight. Maybe a few more times if an encounter was of epic scope and length. But, much like a breath weapon there would be a recharge time between each use.

If I expected it to be used or available on every single attack, as is done via rage cycling, I'd realize that writing 1/rage is pointless and in fact misleading text. I'd write something like 'when raging you can (unlimited/optional) apply X modifier to an attack.'

Why do you think author's wrote 1/rage into rage powers?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber
Brain in a Jar wrote:


How is rage cycling abusive?

Its literally word for word built into the class.

Different authors expect different things. Tireless rage was a barbarian class ability in 3.x long before barbarian rage powers existed. I highly doubt whoever wrote it initially had the expectation of abilities functionally limited to 1/combat would become 1/attack.

Even if you look just at Pathfinder, its quite easy for me to believe the designers saw tireless rage as a way for barbarians to re-enter rage if they were unexpected forced out of it (calm emotions, falling unconscious, etc) once or twice per fight; and not making the connection that barbarians to be entering/exiting rage 5+ times a round to use 1/rage powers on every attack.

After the fact and it became obvious that barbarians were rage cycling. The core rule book has this special place in role playing games. The Pathfinder empire is built on top of the core rules, and making significant changes after the fact is something any publisher wants to avoid. So the horse left the barn, the problem exists and if people want to game the system they will no matter how precisely the rules are written they can and will. Despite not being their original intentions, they left it alone because they didn't want to shift everything built on top of it.

Because I believe the above. Even though I fully believe rage cycling to be rule legal, I believe its not how they were intended and thus consider it as rules abuse. If you think its what the authors expected and/or wanted that's fine too, I doubt there will be much convincing either way as the issue is many years old by this point.

The rage cycling of the cabochon ioun stone and the rage power Internal Fortitude, seems to me to not work (at least not more than once).
When you drop your rage, you become fatigued, but the ioun stone turns that into sickened, but that's fine, that doesn't stop you from raging, so up it goes again and you are no longer sickened. Next round you drop rage again, but now, being already sickened, you instead become nauseated, which will only allow you to make a single move action, no standard, no free, no nothing else, so you are unable to get rage back up until the two rounds for the one round of rage have passed.

While I've certainly heard that argument. Nothing described actually would render the character exhausted so he doesn't become nauseated. Being sickened twice increase the effect into nausea. Sickened does not have a natural stacking clause like fear or fatigue. Its probably a reasonable house rule, particularly if your goal is the ban/reduce rage cycling, I don't think its the default rules.

Roleplaying Guild Guide?

Whose bright idea was it to leave the 'Pathfinder Society' part of the title off Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide in the 'my downloads' section of the web site.

I was just trying to update myself to whatever rule changes there had been in PFS, and lets just say after spending a few minutes going through my downloads searching for 'Society' and 'Organized' I am frustrated enough to make a post about it.

What was wrong with Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play anyhow. At least when I saw the title I knew what it was. 'Roleplaying Guild Guide' sounds like a $.99 thrid party pdf I random bought on the spur of the moment.

You're only look at one possible source of invisibility which is stupid. Your rules would make it impossible for a pack of hellcats or invisible stalkers to ever flank unless their foes could see them.

The bonus to hit for being invisible and the bonus for flanking are untyped bonus from different sources stack. They don't overlap as you seem to imply.

You don't trigger flanking for an ally, because flanking specifies the creatures on the opposite side of the target must also be an enemy (though not necessarily you're ally).

In your treachery scenario. Whether someone is 'not your enemy' needs to be agreed upon from both parts. If either the fighter or the cleric considers the other an enemy he should be treated as such. The cleric is not require to make an 'attack' action to change sides. If he cast summon monster 5 (which wouldn't break invisibility as an attack) and the summons attacking the fighter because of their compulsion to go after the clerics enemies I don't think you see any debate that the cleric himself has become the fighter's enemy as well despite not having attacked him.

The reason the terminology changes from square to creature is because creatures can occupy more than one square. If you only had to threaten the square you could flank large or bigger creatures by being on two adjacent sides and you flanking line would pass through opposite corners of the square but not the target. And/Or you could not normal flank huge creatures as you would not be threatening the same square, but would be on opposite sides of the same creature.

Nothing in flanking implies that the opposite threatening character must have made an attack. The example doesn't state 'Both Valeros and Kyra receive a +2 bonus on attack rolls made against the ogre after the other PC has attempted an attack . You get the bonus based on position alone.

You know your GM better than the rest of us. And its a roleplaying game, so do what you want.

But mechanically an armored coat is generally considered (significantly) worse than a chain shirt. Unless that 50gp is really worth 10' of movement and 5 lbs of encumbrance.

Generally most people decide on light (after magical modification) or heavy as medium armor is mathematically sub optimal in most ways.

A more to the point question would be, does a rogue have to activate his sneak attack, or does it occur automatically even if the rogue doesn't know he is flanking someone.

What would this do beyond force the rogue player to say I activate my sneak attack before every single attack for the rest of his life.

No you don't have to activate passive abilities. In fact its probably beholden to the GM to tell you, you get sneak attack, if the target is flat footed or otherwise subject to sneak attack and the player doesn't know it.

Its after. And its no cheaper than getting a race with an attribute modifier. That said, If you really want to be a rules guy though, starting age is defined as well, and you will likely find it difficult to start at middle age or later.

I am not sure the hedgehog is very optimal for that role, as it has 0 reach by default. Thus has to be in the enemy square to be in position to make a melee attack as required by aid another.

I don't see any obvious changes from the errata that are going to change which archetypes are compatible. Was there some combination in particular you were looking at?

The firedrake or firewyrm siege engines are probably suitable for your needs. Both can produces cones of fire 6d6 cones of fire (30'/60') that would crush massed troops. Just adjust the costs down.

Though in truth you are probably better of creating your own custom item that does what you want. Probably costed around a (crafted) scroll of fireball of the given magnitude per shot. (187.5gp for a 5d6, reflex 14dc, 20' radius, 480' range). That can be use once per X rounds.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

In truth I think its pretty weak. Maybe I am misunderstanding what you mean by charge increment. For the effect to only work in a 10' range, (for the 30' movement creature, it would mean charging from 65' or 70' away) is just really narrow.

I'd probably simplify it. It should work on all charges (still pretty narrow) and give a free bull rush check on hit with a bonus (maybe a flat +5 or 2 * enchancement bonus). Opponents who cannot move back due to a wall or other surface are knocked prone after moving the maximum possible distance.

Could you point out the page/paragraph where you read the hero's handbook says you get 2? Also, this is probably more of a beginner Box question and should probably be in that subsection.

As I read it you get to select a (singular) type of magic from the following: Universalist, Evocation, or Illusion.

As so far as I can tell in both both core and the begginer's box you get one school. Though there are more than 3 options for the core wizard.

It probably could have been worded better, Or differently. And in practice, most people I see dealing with persistent metamagic do just roll twice and take the lower. It would be simplier, cleaner, and more in line with other similiar effects. And would generate very similiar results. But I believe my interpretation is More representitive of how it Works, for better or worse, as actually written.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Technically you don't roll twice on the reroll. Step by step its something like this:

1: Make saving throw.
2: Before knowing the results (Comparing the die roll + save bonus to the spell DC) you must decide if you wish to reroll.
3: Then compare results to spell DC.
If you fail you suffer the effect of the spell.
If you succeed you must repeat the saving throw process one addition time.
If you expended your 1/day use of Improved Lightning Reflexs its gone and cannot be used again on the second saving throw.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

No you don't apply it to your arrows.

Reflexive shot doesn't effect your threat range (Threat range is the range of natural numbers on your attack roll that threaten a critical). Reflexive shot allows you to make AoOs with your bow, you still only threaten squares in which you can make a melee attack into. Generally a medium sized monk wielding a bow that is all squares within 5' which he can hit with his unarmed strike.

Unarmed damage for a medium sized 13th level monk is 2d6.

That's how SKR said it was supposed to work (which was done when he was no longer an employee of Paizo), and the way that was portrayed made it an unofficial statement, since the claim was to a 3rd party publisher on an e-mail not associated with Paizo directly. Paizo themselves have said that unless a FAQ or Errata is released, the developer statements are unofficial, so while SKR may have said something to them, that claim held no water.

It was only errata'd recently to how it works now. In fact, that's the sole reason it was errata'd; the even funnier part is that SKR's message of intention didn't 100% match up to the current errata, as it had a logical inconsistency.

I question your timeline. I am pretty sure the e-mail was in 2013 and he left Paizo in 2014. As he was involved at the time of its Ultimate Equipment's publishing he seems to be a viable source for determining original intent.

I hardly believe it was the sole reason it was FAQ'd and exists currently as a proposed errata. I'd like to see your source for that bit of information. You can certainly find debates about the property long before his e-mail to herolabs finding people who felt it was overpowered or not written as intended.

As for his reply not being identical to the eventual proposed errata. You can find that, on any Dev post that years later bares resemblance to an FAQ or errata. Things change after years and a different person was the final author. And it taking years to go from board post to official FAQ/errata is actually pretty standard for Paizo.

They still act like the caster is their friend and probably try to justify or defend the casters actions offering up whatever random excuses or explanations he can come up with.

Just dispel it, or wait it out. Convincing the target that he was charmed doesn't diminish its effects.

1. Expect table variation. You can find many thread on this, but there is often debate about weather or not a creature can fly with a greater than light load (look for threads about familiars/animal companions as flying mounts). There is the treat medium/heavy encumbrance as armor medium/heavy armor respectively. And armor for animals is often called barding. And barding states that creatures can't fly in a medium/heavy barding. Expect variation/consult your GM.

2. Damage from falling objects is table 13-11. I'd probably classify the rock as small and dense so 2d6 (halved for <30' drop or doubled for >150' drop). With a DC 15 reflex to halve damage.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

If you are looking at a rules strict setting (ie PFS) the halfling favored class bonus would not apply. Its a different ability despite being vaguely similar.

These aren't just 'name changes.' If they were just name changes without mechanical changes then they probably would be 100% backwards compatible. But they deliberately changed the name to break the links with previously printed content because the mechanics changes and thus the previous content should be re-evaluated before being allowed. In a rules strict setting, as no one has done this re-evaluation expect nothing with a name change to be backward compatible.

On bite and grab, you technically can bite the second target and potentially grapple him as well with the same bite. Yes visually its pretty awkward and I'd expect funny looks but if RAW is your only concern you'd be fine. If you feel biting another target while grappling with a target is too awkward, just don't use the grab on the first foe.

4 Claws attacks is not one weapon. Its 4 limbs with 1 (natural) weapon on each. So you get just one claw attack on a standard attack action. And 1 additional attack if you hit with a cleave.

You can find that ruling on page 468 of the core rulebook if you have the first or second (maybe 3rd) printing. It was errata'd several years after release to be replaced with the hardness and hit points increase stated above.

I believe the same change was made in 3.0 when it went to 3.5, but never propagated the change to the srd, thus paizo copied it over.

I can't believe they ruled it that way. It makes no sense whatsoever that it gets easier to strike with a weapon because it now has some electricity as a rider effect.

Because they aren't treating it as an 'electricity' rider effect. Rather just the effect of the spell. No other spell with the electricity descriptor has this built in +3 to hit. Monsters that deal electric damage with each attack don't get this +3 to hit metal. Its not something generally associated with the 'electric' descriptor. Rather this singular spell grants a bonus if attacking a certain type of type of opponent and the effect is independent of its descriptor.

Hmmmm.

Well, it seems to me that if a lightning bolt, for example, can pass harmlessly between two adjacent characters who might even be holding hands, just because the caster (or dragon, or whatever) chose not to move his hand (or head) 6" to the right or left, and the ONLY reason is because of arbitrary lines drawn on the ground (that aren't really there for the spellcaster or dragoon or whatever to see), then that's a failure of the game mechanic, not a failure of the attacker who has definitely NOT "chosen to waste his attack."

Pathfinder made the choice to get ride of the 10' foot wide line effects that 3.x gave by allowing lines to effect squares they ran along the border of. Its a design choice.

Yes if you intentionally choose to poorly aim your line, then you can get screwed and effect 0 squares. But they decided that was a better effect than having line effect twice (or 4x if you look at as cubes) as many squares when it arbitrary ran along a grid line.

Berserker's Blood: +level bonus to attack is probably over the top. It'd probably leave it at +1 for 5 hp max half level. +10 to hit is still pretty darn close to the best accuracy boost (baring true strike which generally takes a standard action) in the game.

Inner Vitality: This is incredibly awkward on several levels. Dropping from fast healing X to regeneration X/2 is not really an upgrade unless your below 0 hit points. Second, you should also clarify if it can be maintained while unconscious (usually unconsious people don't get free action) but regenerations primary effect (in comparison to fast healing is that it works when you would otherwise be dead). Third, regeneration needs to have a weakness (some kind of damage that turns it off) to be consistent with regeneration in the Pathfinder world.

Life Break: This isn't enough damage to justify the cost. At any level a barbarian full attack that hits should be doing more than Leveld6 damage. Make it an AOE cone or come with a heavy duty status (stun/daze/frightened or something) effect to justify being 1/day. (The save should probably be 10+.5 level+stat, its just the standard DC for abilities.)

Honestly I'd write the concept up as a Barbarian or Fighter archetype rather than a stand alone class.

I'll still add it as a total bonus. The difference is minimal and a +1 or 2 bonus for something that happens occasionally in exchange for a +1 bonus all the time is more than fair.

Its not in exchange for anything. It stacked with everything which is one of the reasons it was quite good. You can still take your enhancement bonus to +5 and could add this property on top.

And lets not pretend like keeping good hope, heroism, or a karyukai tea set, up for the vast majority of combats is all that difficult. I think the property would have been quite good if didn't scale (just increased morale bonus by 1) and was priced as a +2 bonus, with scaling its probably more in line with a +3 bonus.

That said, after this FAQ courageous will be yet another magic enhancement effect that isn't worth the paper it printed on which I find to be a disappointment. It probably isn't worth 1,000 much less the minimum of 6,000gp that a +1 equivalent bonus costs. But it does put it right next the value of the majority of weapon enhancements that no one ever selects if given a choice.

I think that FAQ makes a ruling that is specifically limited to how the SPEED property works on AoMF. It even admits that the reasoning for the FAQ response is not based on RAW - but on developer Rule 0.

They did. If you look in the same FAQ they state that wielding two speed weapons does not grant you 2 extra attack (its capped at 1). Granted it took them about 2 years to release this additional clarification but its there, and consistent.

So a Speed AMOF, gives you X speed weapons, but you still only get one extra attack because that's what speed does. Irregardless of how many weapons you wield with that property.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Claws are a single weapon type like daggers. So things that modify weapon types like 'weapon focus (claws)' effects all claws that the character has.

They are individual weapons though. The each individual claw attack needs its own enchantment much like a two weapon fighter needs to enchant the weapon (daggers) in each hand individually.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Its still pretty bad, but it increases your average damage per sneak attack die from 3.5 to 3.917. At 10d6 of sneak its 4.17 average extra damage per attack.

So at its peak its a slightly better penalty to damage ratio than power attack with a 1 handed primary weapon.
