Those are really cool!As for mechanics, I'm not really interested in changing anything; more in more realistically representing the speeds at which muskets can be reloaded in this game. Muzzle-loaded muskets, when loaded by lifelong masters, take, like, 20 seconds; way slower than someone from Golarion who hs never even picked up a gun before (full-round action).
By making muskets breech-loaded, but keeping the mechanics the same, then that huge time gap is at least a little more believable.
Hai gaiz, long-time lurker, first-time poster. My question:
Incorrect. On a miss, the bomb lands in a random square determined by a d8 and number of range increments, and affects all adjacent squares.
Well see, this would make sense. I could just be misunderstanding what the text means when it says, "before the result is revealed." I was assuming that it meant before the result of the die roll, meaning what number came up, but it would make more sense (and actually be worth something) if it meant before the result of hit or miss was revealed. If that's the case, then the fault is on me for misreading.
Is it just me, or is the Aggression ability just stupid and utterly pointless? "Hmmmm...that roll didn't feel right to me...I'm going to reroll it before I even know what came up!"
Withdraw only works in a straight line?
I've found that if you want a "Gaiz, this game is gonna be totes dramatic and srs bizness" type of game, you need to A. have theater-kid players, B. bring the ridiculously good dialogue, story, and description, or C. run or play a game in a non-face-to-face format (PbP, email, VTT, what have you), or have a combination of the above. Everything else, at least in my XP, tends to quickly devolve into dudes and dragons (a phrase I am just now making up to wittily describe the situation the OP is complaining about).
4. Just Bluff
5. Yes, but just for Bluff
If I don't get the fifth slot filled before I go to sleep, I'll go with you four. Kinda interesting to see that the forum appears to be completely uninterested in a random shot at getting UCa.
Well, like I implied above, I think it may be the title, and the fact that you don't have quite as strong a presence on the boards as someone like Mikaze. BUT! Don't let that diminish what your are doing for the community. And I'm not saying that just because you gave me free stuff; you also have inspired me to do what you are doing here, much as Mikaze and Paul did for you.
Manimal marked down for Raffle and the Abandoned Acts Alchemist books. ^_^ I'll send those out to you shortly.
Hooray! Free stuff is always appreciated!
Edit: Received. Thanks again, Kyonko. Next time I have a little extra dough, I will pay it forward and do something similar. Awesome way to give back to an awesome community.

@ manimal ,I like your argument. Wish I could tell you this had been intended to be more than "hey if you can relate or agree come chat" as I wasn't looking to battle, more the fool am I.
And that is a perfectly fine, non-jerk thing to do. Just lay off the accusations, or qualify them up front by either stating that you have no evidence, don't care about evidence, or are wishing for someone to provide evidence.As for my own opinion, though I may not have a whole lot of posts under my belt, I've been lurking these boards for 2 years or so, and I can't say that I've seen what you've seen. Could it be that people who rail against "powergamers" are just shut down quicker because they use more invective?
Conundrum, Are said it best upthread: you are claiming that there is bias from the moderators in favor of "powergamers." I am not saying you are wrong, nor am I agreeing that you are right. I am not saying you are a powergamer, or a grognard, nor am I claiming to be either. All I request is this:
The amount of venom I'm reading even in this remote corner tells me that powergaming is not only dominant but many are in denial about the symptoms. I don't consider myself a grognard , not quite old enough but my first play experiences with dnd when I was a lad of 7 in 1987 were dm'd by a budding true first generation grognard. So while I remember 3d6 in order it wasn't a primary method in my gaming career. I feel tragically caught between younger and older generation gamers, power gamers and grognards although the former more often piss me off .
So all players older than "your" generation are grognards, and all players younger are powergamers? Again, you gotta back these claims up, are all you'll get is people telling you to quit being an overgeneralizing jerk.
I'm currently playing a Pally/Alchy gestalt (new class name: Chemplar) in an email game, and it's AWESOME.
I didn't know that, and now my soul has been crushed.
Here's the way I see it, and I think it works best this way, matching what the rules seem to say and imply:
Considering how long they've been supplying said blood, and how many gallons have been shed, the Middle East should be the most liberated region in the world!
Where I'm confused is how it allows a move, then full attack. Unless I'm mistaken, a full attack is a full-round action, not a move+standard action. It just happens to be that in most cases, a move and standard takes a full round. With the shirt, full attack would still take the whole round, you would just be taking 2 moves and a standard to do so.
