You need to erect some buildings. You definitely need wood for your erections.

I like that we're making the NPC classes relevant.

Creating undead should be treated as specialized crafting (other than the simpler ones such as skeletons and zombies that are raised temporarily). I would reverse the tier nomenclature you're using so that mummies etc. are called tier 3 in keeping with higher level equipment. Permanent undead (including skeletons and zombies) would need a recipe and the appropriate materials.

Yup. Onyx Gems.

@<KABAL> Yeah! That scene made out like it was setting up a recurring villain and then......nope!

Undead Lord-style Cleric of Urgathoa focused on minionmancy in order to swell the military ranks of my Golgothan Overlords.

My Destiny's Twin is likely to be a Commoner Gatherer/Drayman, simply because it seems like few people are doing this, and I anticipate there will be a need.

Ooh! Evil Animated Strawmen! Great idea KC!

I'm all about specific havoc!

And letting slip undead dogs of war!

Goblin Squad Member

Hey! Nobody said anything about RANDOM mayhem! Personally I was just going to let my spare undead loose in the lands of people who were trying to oppress our pro-unlife recruitment drives.

Great job GW team!
Careful with throwing around the letter "G" and the letter "W" together, we don't want anyone at Paizo or Goblinworks getting slapped with a lawsuit now!

Yep... George Washington university is infamously litigious. :]

For the record, you can't trademark letters by themselves. Add images or display the letters in a distinctive style and it is possible, but suing over the use of 'GW' on a messageboard... no, never going to happen.

Tell that to the former owner of McMunchies Sandwich Bar in Buckinghamshire, UK. Who was sued by a fast food conglomerate (who shall remain nameless!) over the name of her establishment!

How is a Chaotic individual going to retain citizenship in a Lawful settlement?

The UNC has a few Necromancers within our ranks. If you favor the Chaotic side of the dark arts, perhaps the Exalted Bastards are for you?

Vote for Aragon here.
Join UNC here.

I'm more NE than CE. Loosing the Undead may seem like an act of Chaos, but it does create some distractions for the Crusader types, who might otherwise decide to practice their "ganking" skills on our fine citizens.

Plus, random encounters.....

How EXACTLY can I join Golgotha? I followed the links and joined Pax Gaming, but where do I go from there?

Also, I have joined you in the land rush on Goblinworks, under the name of CyrusCrow.

I know a guy who can fart and text at the same time... does that count? Both at the game table at the same time!

Still, he often has to ask what is happening in the game when he's done.

And they say the Renaissance Man is dead... :)

Would you mind not farting while I'm trying to save the world?

Now I'm not completely familiar with Golarion's Lore, but I am surprized that Raising Undead is not an evil act, what's the source on that ?
Raising undead on Golarion generally is an evil act... but there are some niche cases. For example, juju zombies are corpses given locomotion by a plant... they aren't really 'undead' in the usual sense. Certainly 'icky', but not necessarily evil.

Are you sure you're not thinking of Yellow Musk Zombies? Juju Zombies are created by the powers of Spirits (whose actual alignment is deliberately left vague) or so I believe.

This brought an interesting idea to my mind. Is the feeding of these plague victims an inherently "good" act?
What if it's feeding plague victims so that they can keep up their strength so that they can further spread the plague? A plague victim with no energy just isn't an effective spreader.

I may be slightly biased here, but that sounds like a perfect plan for the clergy of Urgathoa. Plague? Feeding/Gluttony? Find a way to put Undead in that plan and you all of the Pallid Lady's Prime Tenets.


I am in a small party (numerically and height wise) in the Carrion Crown AP. Three Gnome Brothers make up our entire party. So far we've custom crafted our own gear with crafting feats and sold off most of the gear we find because it's rubbish for us. Overall, it works for us.

Some kind of Decapitation Keyword, perhaps as part of a Coup de Grace action. As an Urgathoan Cleric, this is necessary for the ritual of Reaping. Though I suspect that it would be quite some time before a Vorpal Scythe is seen/created.

Plague escalation cycles would be AWESOME. Those would be fun to see spread over the top of other escalation cycles too though. You could have people running around curing victims, providing needed supplies, or on the evil side just killing the infected and burning the bodies.

One thing though, as awesome as it would be to let's the paladins/clerics/druids magic away all the disease some plagues should require physical medicine. Just imagine the fun when people start trying to rob incoming medical supplies.

Perhaps that would not be necessary. The Curse of the Crimson Throne AP, had a plague running rampant through a city with access to Clerical healing. This is because healing magic only has a set amount of uses per day, which can easily be outpaced by an aggressive contagious disease.

Goblin Squad Member

Ah yes, the guy who had an army of Inferi (Zombies with slashing resistance WTF!) in an underground lake!


There are unconfirmed rumours that there might be Duncan7291.


As a PC, I would advise you to NEVER Command an Undead that spawns. Every day it gets a save to break free, which eventually it will (even if it has to roll a natural 20 to do so!) If it has spawned an army, that's a potential TPK on your hands.

Goblin Squad Member

The word itself has supernatural connotations.

I didn't think followers of the Pallid Princess would deem themselves marvelous. :-)

Why would we not?


Is a blockbuster Arcanist (from the ACG playtest) viable? All you would need is to take the Arcanist Exploit: School Understanding - Admixture at 1st level and you're golden. You wouldn't even need to waste points from your Arcane Reservoir to boost it, as the Versatile Evocation ability isn't dependent on level.

The intense spells ability can be augmented however, and so could the Bloodline Development: Draconic (Fire) if you chose to go down that route.

Goblin Squad Member

Which one is Golgotha?


Just get a set of Amazing Tools of Manufacture, from the ARG, Gnomes section of magic items. Job done.


Shouldn't it have access to Perform: Sing/Dance? And one of the Favoured Terrains should be Urban(Bars), though only when wearing clothing belonging to the opposite gender?

Goblin Squad Member

My lady Urgathoa's Portfolio includes both Undead and War. If that doesn't scream out for her Clerics to start raising Undead armies, I don't know what does!

Goblin Squad Member

As I have stated before. I intend on playing a Cleric of Urgathoa, even if I'm the only one to do so. And even if the developers never include Urgathoa as a Deity.

My loyalty to the Pallid Princess is unshakeable!

Does the Dog Ranger have a Human Companion?

Goblin Squad Member

So you are saying that the "best" minion-based necromancer are likely to be this Leader/Aristocrat Path, rather than Cleric or Wizard Paths?

Prophecy has been vague and inaccurate since the death of Aroden. Play on this.


It's more effective if all your minions are psionic in nature, either from taking levels in a class, or from taking the Wild Talent Feat. If they don't already have one of these then use Psychic Reformation to make it so.

Now the minions can be used in the Metaconcert (this is what I missed out in my text wall earlier) to increase the Manifester level by 5(+2 for every two Power Points Augmented above 9). Manifest it on the other with a different set of minions using the now higher manifester level to give an even HIGHER ML. That is where you rinse and repeat.

I did say "If you really need one of them by your side for any reason". Which could mean anything from needing a random skill or ability that nobody else in the party has (albeit at a much lower level), to trap/arrow fodder duty.

Yes it can be a little bit like having Leadership with Telepathy, which also has the benefit that you don't have to traipse an army of NPC's through every dungeon you encounter to take advantage of them. Which should also prevent your GM from killing them off like a bunch of "redshirts", "Nodwicks", or "Kennys"

Goblin Squad Member

What about Deities that are not out at the beginning. Say somebody REALLY wanted to play a Cleric of an unreleased God(dess) would they have to worship one of the released ones then convert (if that's even possible) if or when their chosen deity comes out. I know that in PFS you HAVE to chose a Deity to be a Divine caster, but is this another option that's being considered?

Yeah...the main use of the Staff of Masters is getting the "free" matamagic applied to a spell you cast without raising the spell level.

It's relatively easy the next non-adventuring day to refill the charges on your staff so that you cast spells with all the crazy metamagic you want!

I think you can only recharge one point each day, so it would take ten non-adventuring days to fully recharge the staff.


You want to see OP?

Try combining a Thrallherd with either class that provides a Collective. Mass produce Sycophant's Rings, which are pretty cheap at 500gp if you (or one of the minions) has Craft Wondrous Items, to make your Collective effectively number in the hundreds.
Use a combination of feats (Enlarged Collective and Expansive Collective to give it a Universe-spanning range by 12th level.)

You can now leave all your minions at home. They are literally but a thought away. If you really need one of them by your side for any reason, then Dimension Swap them in for minion "Tag Team"

Manifest the Metaconcert power on your Thrall (who should be a Manifester of some description). Then get your Thrall (using their now higher manifester level) to manifest Metaconcert on you. End the first power. Rinse and repeat to increase your manifester level to Godlike levels, or until the DM's head explodes.

There are also some other heavily abusable tricks to use here, such as using the Blood Money spell to power the material components of a Reality Revision, then dividing the strength loss equally between everyone in the Metaconcert.

Really, the only limit on ways to abuse the Collective/Thrallherd combination is your imagination.


No. They can only be replaced for things you could have taken at the earlier level.


So the light really does shine out of your......!

One last bit of advice, do not advertise to your good aligned buddies that you bought about 3 gallons of unholy water making the wand of Infernal Healing!

That's only ONE of the possible ingredients. If there are any Demon hunters in the party, they should be fine with the other ingredient.

Think it does, see for example: Breath of Life

Ok a creature can be a corpse, but the Item description says that it can be cast on one that you can hit and cause damage to. A corpse is still not viable, and therefore my point is still valid.


The spell from a spellstoring weapon can be cast on a CREATURE that you attack. A corpse would not be a viable target I'm afraid.

The magic items were actually ok, once we'd cleaned all the bad-guy-soot off of them. As for rolling natural ones, he actually PASSED his first reflex save against my fireball!
