You're still holding it, so it wouldn't disappear.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Yes, as long as you declared spell combat before your first attack.

GMs should not be punished for running scenarios.

Well, you don't get iterative attacks with a natural attack, so while what you say is technically correct, a full attack with a single slam only attacks once.

According to IronHelix, VC for online play, we can run WB4G before the general availability date as long as we picked up a physical copy from a game store on the day (or after if they had them left over). Venture officers were sent PDF copies in advance to let them prepare for running it on the day, and they are not allowed to use these.

I'm running a game of it myself, but I'm full up. If anyone has to drop out, I'll come here and ask for replacements.

You can always predict an unpredictable man to be unpredictable.

Now hang on just one bloody minute.

I'm a cleric, and I've got a cure spell cast, but not delivered. A creature rushes past me, moving out of a threatened square.

Are you seriously saying that if said creature is a barbarian with whom I am friends I cannot stick out a hand and touch him as he rushes past, but if it is a zombie, I can?

What if it's a barbarian enemy whom I think is a zombie, due to some kind of illusion spell, but is actually living? Can I stick out a hand and try to deliver a cure spell, which will have the effect of healing him rather than harming him? By your argument, because it would heal him, I can't take an AoO, even though I think he's a zombie and I want to make an attack against him with the cure spell, because it wouldn't harm him.

What if it's a dhampir ally? Touching him with a cure spell will harm him. But suppose we just met and he hasn't told me he's a dhampir yet, and I figure I want to cure him. Am I able to take an AoO as he rushes past me, even though I'm his ally, because the spell will harm him and he presumably doesn't want me to deliver it?

What about the action of sticking your hand out with a held charge of a cure spell is different when it's a zombie vs. a friendly barbarian rushing by you?

This breaks my brain.

Ah, good catch! There is no Extra Smite feat.

If you choose oath of vengeance, extra lay on hands functions as extra smite.

You could use the Estoc from Melee Tactics toolbox and not have to spend a feat on slashing grace. Of course then you can't get dex to damage until you can afford a +1 agile version thereof.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

You would need to spend the feat or use a race that gets proficiency, such as Tengu.

You could always use Profession (scribe) as a day job roll anyway.

I suspect english is not your first language? That note means that there are two magus arcana that require this ability in order to function. It does not mean that you must take those arcana for this ability to function.

However, you should invest in feats such as rapid shot and manyshot to increase the number of attacks you can make with a bow.

If the infusion is of a spell that allows spell resistance, spell-immune creatures will not be affected by it, except for the exceptions included in each golem's stats.


The player's guide isn't out yet... there'll probably be traits in it related to why you're in the asylum, and what sort of mental malady you have.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Or use UMD on a scroll or drink a potion or something.


Is there an opening in this one? I have a level 1 character I'd like to bring.


If anyone's going to be running a level 1 compatible scenario in the near future, or needs a replacement character, I'm interested in running a couple level 1s.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Moving into your reach doesn't provoke unless you have a special ability that makes that happen. Moving out of a threatened square, whether into a non-threatened square or a threatened square, does.


With more money we can buy things like a masterwork compass, good maps, etc.

Wow! I mean, wow! I was not expecting that!

Elves do not generally get reincarnated, although some do. Brightness seekers is a mostly-abandoned concept in the setting.

A 1 round casting time is a full-round action, AND doesn't come into effect until the beginning of your next turn. A spell with a casting time of a full-round action comes into effect as soon as that full-round action is complete.

Lava is much denser than the human body. If you're immune to fire, you can walk across it.

Hi James! I hope Paizocon is tolerable for you! I know you hate conventions so I'll just say that I hope this one has as little of what you hate and as much of what you don't hate as possible.

It's not useless if you want to have another cantrip.


Hang on, Stormy -- your icon shows Liberty's Edge but your post above said Dark Archive. Could you confirm which one it is, please?

Leadership should be there in herolab, as it is in the core rulebook. It's a feat, and make sure you meet the prerequisites, and it isn't turned off in any sort of houserules.

In the setting, keeping slaves is neutral on the good-evil axis as long as one is not cruel to them. Buying slaves from a slaver who captures innocent people and forces them into slavery would be an evil act, however, unless done with the intention of freeing the slaves. If the slaves in question are criminals who were put into slavery as a punishment, or people who were in debt and willingly sold themselves into slavery to pay it off, or actually indentured servants whose contracts end after a certain amount of time or value generated by labor, that would not be evil and could even be a good act under certain circumstances.

It's actually early 1920s.

Re Magus: Remember that whips are one handed slashing weapons and thus eligible for blackblade status.

Check with your GM first, because some may decide that even though it qualifies by the stated criteria, they want a 'blackblade' to be a blade.

Whip using Warpriest of Calistria:

Human, 20 Pt buy:

STR 15 (+2) = 17, put level-up bonuses here.
DEX 14
CON 14
INT 10 (or 12 if you want more skills)
WIS 15 (or 14 for higher Int)
CHA 7

First level feats: Weapon focus (whip), Dirty fighting (from Player Companion: Dirty Tactics Toolbox), Improved trip (or disarm if you prefer).

Third level feats: Whip Mastery, [Whatever else you want, Power Attack is a good idea]

Fifth level feat: Whatever you want

Sixth level bonus feat: Improved whip mastery (You qualify for this because you treat your WP level as your BAB for the purpose of qualifying for these bonus feats).

Seventh level feat: Combat reflexes or Martial Focus (flails) (Player companion: Weapon master's handbook)

Eighth level bonus feat: Greater whip mastery if you want to grapple using your whip. Otherwise, Weapon specialization, improved critical, greater trip, greater disarm, Cut from the air (Player Companion: Weapon Master's Handbook), or whatever you want.

At this point your whip character is pretty well established. It's not the most powerful, but it's thematic and does what it does pretty well.

Ah, but those people are not Real True Christians™ -- they're only giving lip service to Jesus, whereas the people who really believe hate the same way the Real True Christians™ hate.

This is how they fulfill their martyrbatory fantasies of being persecuted and hated The Same Way Jesus Was™ even though they're a member of the majority religious group in the U.S. That's why you get people like Trump saying the IRS is targeting him for being Christian -- it's b~$*@$+*, he knows its b#@&#&%&, but it's a way to stoke the fantasies of the right-wing christians who make up the republican base.

Hmm, PFS doesn't use normal WBL tables. For a level 13 character, wbl should be 140k, and you can buy a single item worth more then that?

Oh, and 74 fame actually lets up buy an item up to 205k!

I thought they had a rule about no item being able to cost more then 30% or something of your wealth. Must be an old rule. Ah well.

People who have played up a lot and who have gotten a few of the extra-lucrative specials under their belt (like Bonekeep) will probably have a lot more wealth than the standard WBL table.

Prestidigitation can be used to clean, so it would probably work to keep yourself smelling fresh without having to necessarily take a shower.

Effects that give miss chances usually don't stack, but I can't find a particular rule that says one way or another.

Vortex Spells requires an attack roll. Any spell with an attack roll will work, so rays, ranged touch, or melee touch. That ability isn't very good unless you combine it with something that gives you better critical range on the spells.

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

That's what this thread is all about.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

To clarify, we don't find it offensive, we find it confusing. Or at least a bit nonsensical.

Lots of classes have class features based around being able to attack faster than normal. Numerous feats do this as well. Most of them do not require the use of additional limbs or weapons to do it. (By the way, loading two arrows at a time is Manyshot, not Rapid Shot. Rapid shot is actually taking more than one shot in a full attack action.)

Blindness shuts down spellcasters who rarely have good fortitude saves.

Can you give us an example, maybe in a spoiler for difficult subject matter? I can't really think of how someone would advocate violence as a joke.

"No revision" is probably not a good idea considering there is obvious disagreement on this point. I think the distinction between assigning and applying a chronicle is an important one. If you assume the restriction on assigning a chronicle also covers applying the chronicle, then the situation where you gain more than one level when you apply multiple chronicles can't actually happen, because you're no longer eligible to apply them once your character is above the level of the pregen, even if you're still in-tier.

This is clearly a matter on which reasonable people can disagree.

Argh.

Why does paizo ever bother making magic items? Unless they're better than the generic +x items, no one uses them. If they're better than the generic +x items, the subsequent errata invariably nerfs them so hard they're not just worse, they're utterly useless.

Hilarious, but wouldn't cooking the meat do the job too? Fire damage and all that.

If you have

the appropriate level, even if this would advance your
character several levels.

This is the line in question. I think that the simplest, most straightforward interpretation is that you apply all the credits when you reach that level, no matter how many levels this would advance your character. To do otherwise would bring up the problems that nosig is detailing. What do you do with the chronicles for which you're now ineligible?

Speed force is what gives The Flash and other speedsters in the DC comics universe their powers. It's kind of the ultimate Deus Ex Machina as what exactly it is and can do has never, to my knowledge, been defined. It sounds to me like Harrow is definitely not like that?

No one mentioned the plot of Tangled yet? The baby has a special magic power that the BBEG wants, but has to keep her alive and healthy and happy to use it.

Then there's the options. You could go the route that movie did, and have the BBEG raise the baby as his own, but in a controlling, emotionally abusive way that only provides enough love and affection to keep the kid sufficiently healthy and willing to provide the magic. The other option would be to have the BBEG actually go all out on being a loving, caring parent -- while still doing bad stuff that the PCs want to stop.
