With rolling of dice it is possible to end up with a very average character, not so with point buy (you could but why would you). Average Jill/Joe generally does not decide to pick up a sword and go kill monsters, and if they do they likely won't last long. Most RPGs are designed around heros/anti-heros not Old No-name. It might be fun for awhile to play that character for some people, but I wouldn't want to.

Vocal support on forums does not equal demand for sales. Paizo did Iron Gods not because I wanted it very much, they did it because they dipped the toe into SciFi territory with Distant Worlds and Reign of Winter and sales must have been good enough to warrant a full AP.

Matter of fact, I remember when Paizo did Art of Dragon Magaizne because A LOT of people on the boards asked for an art book VERY LOUDLY and made SOLEMN STATEMENTS that this is going to a MASSIVE HIT.

And so Paizo published it. It's a great book of excellent quality. It's now discounted from 35 USD to 4 USD and even despite that it still refuses to sell, 9 years later.

Thanks for the note about the art book. Didn't even realize it existed, had to buy one.

Again no. Spells that have the effect from attacking state that. Cloudkill specifically states:

"A living creature with 6 or more HD takes 1d4 points of Constitution damage on your turn each round while in the cloud (a successful Fortitude save halves this damage). Holding one's breath doesn't help, but creatures immune to poison are unaffected by the spell."

Note: "while in the cloud". This is very straightforward when reading the descriptions.

Axiomatic Storm is the same, it states "It falls in a fixed area once created" and "a gout of acid strikes a randomly selected chaotic outsider within the spell’s area" nothing about individuals outside of the area (which includes individuals adjacent to it attacking individuals within).

Okay, so what about the Wall of Fire example. Let me change the attack something just inside of the effect, to picking something up just inside of the effect. If you pick up your dropped weapon, which is just inside the 20' fire effect from a Wall of Fire, do you take damage reaching in to pick up the item?

No.

Fireshield does not have an area of effect it is "personal". It also clearly describes the effect on people attacking the individual with the spell in effect: "Any creature striking you with its body or a handheld weapon deals normal damage, but at the same time the attacker takes 1d6 points of damage + 1 point per caster level (maximum +15)."

Read the descriptions and then don't over apply the effects.

No. Attacking into a spell effect is not the same as entering it. Also, Glitterdust is not an ongoing effect, you can freely enter the area. The ongoing part is only for those individuals in the initial blast.

For example the text in Grease states " A creature can walk within or through the area of grease at half normal speed with a DC 10 Acrobatics check". Notice walk through not attack a creature in.

Hello,
I received an email that my payment method was declined (likely due to me moving and changing the associated address). I have updated and wanted to make sure the order is going to go through.

Thanks.

As my PCs approach the end of Iron Gods I have been adding content to foreshadow their post adventure path continuation. I plan to have them travel into space to combat the Dominion, Kytons, and possibly the Great Old ones. I really want to add ship-to-ship combat to the adventure. I have looked at a couple of third-party products currently available, they have been great for some aspects (adding alien species and environments), they didn't quite do it for the space combat.

I did however find a Kickstarter that seems very promising. If you are like me and want to send PCs into space it might be something you want to look at. Rather than link to the Kickstarter itself here is the link to the discussion about it on the Paizo messageboards:

Link: Aethera.

The stretch goals have been increased for larger pledges. Now for every $100 you get an additional one of each stretch goal. Also, discounts for pledges over $100. Some really cool pieces, including mine pieces. For anyone who purchased the Dwarven Forge caverns these pieces will allow you to create a mine adventure.

Also, he is producing everything in house, so I believe the ship dates will be earlier than those listed on the Kickstarter.

Liberty's Edge

Seeing folks reactions to the prepainted dungeon dressing in the Battles line I thought some would be interested in unpainted dressing. Minimum buy in for the Kickstarter starts at $30, but you can choose by the piece.

Link: RPG and Wargaming Accessories.

Suggestion

Spoiler:
Since you have an android PC one thing I suggest (which I wish I had done) is have the body that the android PC is using actually be the remains of Cassandalee (or if it is a male android change Cassandalee into a male android). It would still allow Cassandalee to be the AI (since in the neurocam she downloaded her earlier consciousness) and the PC (since when androids "die" the can reboot and a new consciousness/soul takes over). I could imagine the confrontation with Hellion would be interesting, he could call the android PC sister/brother and say that "Unity has been searching for you". You would just have to remember that where they normally find the destroyed remains of Cassandalee in book 3 that it wouldn't be there, so perhaps they could watch a video in the security office of Cassandalee dying in the room and then some time later rising back up. This would mean there were some further incarnations between Cassandalee's death and your PC's birth.

Book Three

Spoiler:
Ilarris Zeleshi is a great NPC to torment your players with. She is very good at deception so she should have a good chance to lie to your players and perhaps misdirect them towards another as being the spy. She is also very vindictive so if they do uncover her she will be motivated to do them harm, though likely not directly.
In my game the PCs suspected her but she talked her way out of a fight and then escaped. Since they had discussed their origins in Torch she made her way there and talked Val Baine into coming with her to join the Technic League. This will lead to increased motivation to infiltrate the Technic League and boy do my PCs want to kill Ilarris now.

Someone should design a wondrous item that is a filigree that drains the item of all magic.

Wondrous item worth 20 times more than any wondrous item in core rulebook. Cool effects but would bankrupt a kingdom to create.

An item that benefits one character but screws over the party. That shouldn't cause any trouble at the table should it?

Hmm. Name in title does not match item name, but then the name in title shows up as a power of the item. Also only works for one specific person.

Choker of the (insert animal name) versus Choker of the (insert animal name). Both cool items, but one seems under-priced and the other over-priced.

There is a display issue where the case incentive is not showing up on the Example subscription shipments section. If your subscription is set to receive 1 case and 1 incentive per release, the incentive should get added to the order when the June order is generated to your account.

EDIT: I've double checked your subscription settings, and it looks like you are set to receive 1 case and 1 incentive, so you should be good.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know.

Thanks!

That means that the Feiya and King Irovetti replacement figures will not appear in The Lost Coast, and will instead be inserted into the next set we do after that. We apologize for the delay, but I for one am impressed with WizKids taking the initiative to fix the problem. None of us needs more bad Feiya figures.

1) Is this still underway?

2) Is this still planning on being inserted into this case?
3) If so, how exactly is this supposed to work?

Just trying to find some information for my poor, mush faced Feiya.

I would like to know this as well.

Hello,
I have a Battles subscription. In my list of June deliverables I see the Standard booster case, but not the case incentive (dragon). Is this normal? If not I do want the case incentive.

Thought so. That is a bummer.

Hi All,
I took a break of a week or so and since I have been back it feels like my Wizard is substantially less powerful. Groups and individual mobs I used to be able to destroy are nearly killing me. Has there been nerfs to AOE spells in the last little while? Thanks.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The delay on these is a bit much so I will be buying it from my FLGS which has them now rather than wait 3 more weeks for my subscriptions. Thanks.

Liberty's Edge Goblin Squad Member

Oh I see some now. Is Stoneroot Glade or Phaeros a good option?
Where are the Keepers of the Circle housed? I liked their mission statement.

Liberty's Edge Goblin Squad Member

Another question now that I have reached a reasonable level as a Wizard. What settlement would be good for me? I play mostly what would be neutral good and want somewhere I can increase my wizardly powers but aid in policing the territory. On the territory map I don't see any settlements specialized in wizards.

I'm quite enjoying having one "adventurer" and one craftsman as it gives me a diverse game experience.

On early training, I agree that you don't have to invest in early melee/ranged if you want to go Wizard. You can get a wand for free, pick up some orisons, and start blasting. Indeed, if you plan on being on tonight and haven't already found one, I'll look you up to ensure you get a staff as well. I'm happy to help in-game if you ever see me.

Thanks. I should be on by tomorrow. Still have to install a new SSD into my new laptop, but I will for sure look you up. Thanks.

Liberty's Edge Goblin Squad Member

Thanks for the feedback. Is it useful as a wizard to learn the early melee combat skills? Is there a guide for wizards for early development? What should I focus on for training early in my career?

If I mostly like exploration and combat would it be advisable to have:
one character as a Wizard and another as Fighter/Cleric. Or will one combat focused character be enough and I should focus one character as a crafter or gatherer?

Liberty's Edge Goblin Squad Member

Hi All,
I am a supporter of both the Kickstarters and am finally able to get onto the game (New laptop). I have a couple of questions I hope you can address:
1. Can I have a single character who is a specialist (ie. Wizard) and also a crafter/gatherer or will I need a separate character for each role? I would like to have a character that is a Wizard and one who is a Fighter/Cleric using Destiny's Twin, but also be able to gather and craft.
2. Is there a particular build that excels for a Wizard who would like to adventure solo on occasion?
3. What is the most fun thing to do so far?

Thanks in advance and hope to see you all online soon.

The rules explicitly say that casting spells as a free action does not provoke. But I don't think it's written that free actions, in general, never provoke. If it were true that free actions never provoke, they wouldn't need to specify that spellcasting as a free action doesn't provoke.

So yeah, I think a trip attempt as a free action provokes unless you have Improved Trip.

What are these free actions spells that you are casting?

Them being able to know what their turns are as soon as their turns came up, made the game move at an impressively fast pace. Sorry guys you didn't get to fight the final boss, maybe next time. :)

Thanks Skeeter Green for bringing the majority of said traded miniatures.

Thanks to my Pathfinder Society GMs:
-Lady Ophelia (Venus De Coy) who ran the table I was at for the Special.
-Peevenator who ran my Destiny of the Sands Part 1 table on Friday afternoon.
-My GM (name not listed yet in my sessions) who ran Destiny of the Sands Part 2 on Saturday Morning.
-My GM (name not listed yet in my sessions) who ran Destiny of the Sands Part 3 on Sunday Morning.

Justin Riddler for being generous with his dice.

Majuba for sharing his delicious goblin brains.

The Emerald Spire Authors who were all very generous with their time and were willing to sign my book.

All of the other players at my tables.

All the other great people I met around the hotel.

Overall a great con which reminds me why I love the hobby and the people who both make and play it. I can't wait until next year.
