You are not quite sure how but there is a loud popping sound and suddenly two huge Elementals appear, though the one to the north (E 1) seems tougher, and the second halfling thief appears as well. 3d20 ⇒ (12, 16, 14) = 42
1d20 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 = 11 Varin
1d20 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 = 12 Boneyard
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (8) + 5 = 13 Mizaru
1d20 + 8 ⇒ (19) + 8 = 27 Kracow
1d20 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 2 = 22 Gunser
Heroes take a surprise round, but then the baddies win the initiative.
These are Cold Iron Elementals and a halfling wizard/thief. They are the same as the summoned ones but much bigger and stronger.
NEW MAP UNDER MY AVATAR
Varin and Kracow crouch under the stairs going up
Gunser finds there is no where to get out of sight. It is a very large circular room, with a 20 ft cricle in the center, where the ket is to be set. On the side of the room is a staircase that winds up around the wall. He could go up the stairs, but that is it.
Going through a door, takes him through a portal.
gee glad i did that for you there fox.
The reason I asked if you were interested is to know if you were interested It is cool if you did not like the ideas, but you should have just said so, instead of asking me to put up a build. Hell you could have said "Wow those are crap, I hate them." but to just ignore them is pretty weak.
Just a quick pass at it, but my initial idea
I think the first is an Inquisitor with the Blackpowder Inquisition
I would probably go Human and I would put my +2 in Wis or Dex
Favored class bonus to skills
Traits: Vagabond to get DD, and whatever else you like
Feats : PB Shot, Rapid Reload musket
Looking forward you prob want to take precise at 3rd
For the other I would go Aasimar (Archon Blooded) Armored Hulk Barbarian
Feats: Power Attack
This does of course make social encounters really hard, but if you are more RP based for that it could be fun, but perhaps you use the aasimar's trais to get some diplo bonuses
It is for PFS?
The rules are 20 pt buy, using the racial bonuses for the approved races. No where does it allow you to add bonuses in addition to that. Are you sure he wasn't just explaining his race bonus to his stats?
You also start with 150 gp in gear, and you cannot craft or create custom items. If he found an intelligent item for 150 or less in UE then good for him, otherwise he is cheat in :)
Gunser remains in the water and Mizaru bowls the other balls into the water.
You feel something release from you.
The debt is paid. Unless you intend to so something snack. It addresses Gunser.
If you leave peacefully:
It takes several hours but the party is easily able to get back to where they came in where a door to the main entrance floats.
We can roll init!
Boneyard feels the burn as teh hot pepper goes down his gullet, it hits his stomach and he feels it begin to churn, suddenly he sprays a cone of fire out of his mouth, then another. He quickly chases it with the cooling liquid of the blue vial and the third breath is of ice.
Add Firebreath to your spell list as a level 2 spell, and gain the metamagic feat elemental spell-cold/ice
Varin explodes! Time to reroll. :P
Varin immediately feels an intense burning in his brain. He doubles over in pain and shock. The burning seems to focus and localize in one spot in his brain, then like lightning it fires down to just behind his eyes, then down to his arms, legs and feet. The burning intensifies until he thinks he is going to burst into flame. He cries out...the pain stops.
Varin stands up and looks at the crossbow. He knows how to use it. gain exotic weapon proficiency Heavy Repeating Crossbow.
Bpneyard feels a slight bulge in his belt pouch. He takes it out and finds a Red Pepper with a tag that says "Eat me Alice." and a small vial that seems blue in color which says "Drink me Alice"
wow nice wand rolling there tex!
The aprty drags the two balls away. The one from the gullet seems to be in decent shape, perhaps it would not hold up if fired but it sppears to be alright for carrying.
It takes 4 hours to get to the other balls that missed near the lake, and from there only another hour to get to the lake.
Our heroes stand 200 feet from the lake with all 4 balls ready to go.
gptta say I am on the OPs side to a point.
If I was the ninja I would be pissed as well and want some kind of revenge. (note I mean the character not the player)
Wait you mean I can't kill the helpless bad guys, but you can? Hell naw!
I do not think a letter makes much sense, nor would it work well. I do not have the answer as to what you should do however.
As to the CN part of the debate. I do not see why everyone is harping on that. He is Neutral so if he leans a bit towards evil today and a bit toward good tomorrow that seems ok with me. He is Chaotic, that in itself seems to imply that you cannot say with any definition that he HAS to act in any way in any situation, other than he probably chafes at hard and fast rules.
This is why so many players are CN in PFS, it gives you a TON of leeway to do things.
just my 2 cp
I think that you should let them do it. If he focuses solely on one or the other he is more likely to squash everything you throw at him.
I think you can say thins like. "Hey Ranger Rick, I think you are optimizing a bit much and will outshine the other players, so I would rather you not have any stats below a 10 and nothing about an 18 after bonuses."
Or whatever, but I have never heard of a switch-hitter ranger being game squishing before. But I could be wrong.
