I am in the unfortunate position that I have to sell my Deluxe Collector's Edition. Although it was bought with the best of intentions, sadly circumstances have meant it has lain unopened beyond the first opening and I need extra cash.

I could sell it on eBay but I would rather that it go to a loving home where I know that it will be well looked after.

However, I'm not willing to part with it for a song; I would need serious offers and consideration for shipping (I'm in the UK, and it's a heavy beast!)

I will, of course, provide pictures to attest to the condition of the volume. All of the prints are with the volume, and have only been out of the protective envelope once, this evening, in order to get photographs.

PM me if interested.

Yes, the damage is totaled before apply damage reduction, but the issue here would be whether Pummelling Style can be used to circumvent hardness instead of damage reduction.

2 people marked this as a favorite.

When this is a legitimate tactic permitted by the rules, why would anyone feel it was an exploit or cheating?

Thanks Jesse,

I can appreciate the concern, but rest assured we are both very active and love our RP! We'll be making some posts for games in the next couple of days!

Kind regards,

Staff Officer, TAW RP EU Division

Hi Jesse,

I will speak to our webmaster. However, the unit structure is listed here:

TAW have a specific way of creating Divisions to ensure they have longevity before we add them as a permanent Division in one of our Corps and we've only just reached that milestone ourselves (the Sunday that just passed actually).

I hope that answers your questions for the moment. As for advertising actual games, we'll be doing that both here and on our own forums.

If you have any questions, I can be reached through, or of course through private message here!

Yes, as it happens I was thinking that disarm/trip is likely to provide greater action economy as I can swap them out in the Flurry. Good thing I can rebuild before level 2!

Ah Divvox2, you are the person I need to speak to then!

I'm really thinking of trying to exploit the synergies between Brawler and grapple; I'm correct in thinking that we can't maintain a grapple and Flurry of Blows until we have Rapid Grappler, correct?

Hello everyone,

I'd like to introduce myself first and foremost; I'm Nostrus and I represent The Art of Warfare, a multi-gaming community with over 2,500 members over a number of games, including tabletop roleplaying.

We've taken the decision to include Pathfinder Society in our play schedule, which includes several Pathfinder adventure path campaigns as well as other systems too.

Although we shall be advertising independent games here on, I wanted to keep any TAW-related questions on one thread to minimize disruption. We currently have over 50 members across a number of timezones, predominantly North American and European.

We play our games through a combination of both Roll20 and Teamspeak 3 (for stable voice communications) and we welcome anyone who wants regular Society games online to contact us about joining up.

You can find our website at the TAW website.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here!

Oh, great!

I thought that you wouldn't get any bonus to CMD vs grapple when an enemy tries to escape your grapple. Since they aren't technically trying to grapple you.

You wouldn't get the bonus if they try to 'escape' as that would be Escape Artist. However, if they try to reverse the grapple, it does. Essentially this helps out where you are grappling something larger than yourself.

Fantastic, thanks guys!

Hi guys,

I'm just trying to figure something out and could use some sage advice. The Human FC bonus for Brawler (aside from the standard HP/skill bonus) is +1 CMD against two combat maneuvers. I intend to spend a lot of time grappling foes, but I was just wondering - if I choose the CMD vs grapple does that apply where an opponent attempts to reverse a grapple too?

I would suspect that it does, but as this is a Society character I want to ensure that's the case.

Thanks for your time.
