Can you give an example? I would think it would be easier to just describe what exactly you intend to do, and try to "succeed" at that.

Let's say you're trying to pretend you're not as good at a skill as you actually are. For example: you're playing in the Wormwood Mutiny and you want to end up as a swab so you have access to certain parts of the ship. But, you've got a pretty good Profession (Cook) skill, so you may accidentally end up as the ship's cook instead if you are forced to roll. You "take 1" on the roll so you intentionally screw it up.

Or, say you're using the Awaken Contruct spell on an animated object, but you don't want it to become too smart so it's easier to control. You "take 1" on all the ability rolls and end up with an INT 3 and a CHA 3, which is better for your particular plans.

And so forth. I could probably think of half a dozen other examples but you get the idea.

Your first example would be a bluff check, to pretend you don't know what you're doing.

The second example isn't a skill; it's a random quantity, similar to rolling damage on a fireball. You can't choose the value.

First off, VMC isn't PFS-legal, so Bardic Knolwedge is out. On the other hand, if you're OK with worshipping Irori, you can take one of those feats you just freed up and pick up Deific Obedience for a +4(!) sacred bonus to all Knowledges.

Also, Breadth of Experience isn't allowed for humans. You could switch to a Dwarf, Elf, or Gnome (gnome would be best with the Charisma boost), or swap it out for Dilettante, which would still be pretty good if you want to spread your skills around instead of hyper-focusing on specific Knowledges.

Also, you need to have a character participating in the game to spend Prestige during the session. Since you can't do that as a GM, a GM is never allowed to spend PP. (Or gold, for that matter)

To some extent, that's to get you off the hook. In a couple of months, you may be running a Tier 5 - 9 scenario, and a PC might get killed. Can you, as the GM, contribute to raising the character? No.

I don't think he's asking about spending PP on spellcasting services for the PCs, but rather for purchasing items for his GM credit character using PP. For that, you can just mark it on your sheet like you would a purchase you paid money for.

I'm kinda amazed at how many people in this thread really look at this show and think that how men treated Peggy in terms of the sexism that she faced was too much or over the top or was done just to setup a girl power angle to show how great Peggy was.

It's as if people here really thought that white guys in the 20's 30's and 40's were more magnanimous than they really were? As if they, for the most part wouldn't have treated Peggy and every other woman or non white person like that. And it's not that I'm saying that white d00ds were all evil but that's just how it was back then. Women had JUST gotten the right to vote a little more than 20 years prior to this story. Sexism and attitudes wouldn't have magically changed or disappeared during that time. Hell it's 70 years later and some of those attitudes STILL havent changed.

I don't see anyone claiming that the sexism wasn't realistic, but rather that it detracted from the show. While a show about a working woman overcoming sexism is all well and good, it's a tone mismatch with the rest of the MCU, which has otherwise avoided pretty much any significant social issues.

Wait, which is it? Do you like that it accurately portrayed period attitudes with regards to sexism, or do you like that it ignored period attitudes with regards to racism?

Why would it? If we aren't talking about audio books, the difference between a paper book template and an e-book is the amount of copy protection and other DRM crap they put into the e-book, isn't it? That doesn't exactly add consumer value...

There is additional formatting/layout cost, because the needs for ebooks are different than what you already have done for a print version.

But basically, yeah, ebook production doesn't have to pay for the printing, shipping, or warehousing, so they should be cheaper. And in fact, lots of ebooks are cheaper, but those are typically self-published, indie, and small press books.

The big publishers jack up the prices on ebooks because they don't want people to buy them. They're frantically trying to prop up old-fashioned brick-and-mortar stores, because that's where they reigned supreme as gatekeepers. If they have to compete in an ebook market alongside indie and small presses who don't have the same corporate overhead, they can't stay competitive.

I agree about the spells per day, but the Dandy does not mention a change to the caster level among the other changes to spellcasting. It should still be level-3 like a regular Ranger.
Since the spellcasting is altered, you do not use the original text at all for the ranger spellcasting progression, it would appear he has full CL.

Huh? No, if it had said it replaced the Ranger's spellcasting, then you would not use any of the original text. But instead it alters it, so we use the original text except where it is contradicted by the new rules.

Likewise, it doesn't say that the type of spellcasting is altered, so it remains Divine.

It does say "spontaneously cast." I think you could make a case for it being legal, but I also think there's enough disagreement that you'd be better served looking for a different concept.

You can absolutely get a higher CL wand crafted if you need it. For instance, a wand of scorching ray would normally be only CL 3, but could be made at CL 7 to get that second ray. While it's not as efficient in terms of cost/ray, firing 2 at once has its own advantages. Likewise, a CLW wand of a higher CL is less efficient in terms of cost/hp, but can heal faster, if that's important to you.

To be a little more specific, I'd suggest these benchmarks for "minimum contribution" for people who focus most of their resources on out-of-combat stuff:

Level 1-4: Aid Another, plinking with a crossbow/cantrip/Magic Missile wand, or topping off hp with a CLW wand

Level 5-8: Wands of minor buff spells (Vanish, Feather Step, Bear's Endurance); a problem-solving toolbox* for things like invisibility, darkness, difficult terrain, putting out fires, etc.; medium/long-duration pre-buffs (Heroism, Barkskin, Darkvision, etc.)

Level 9-12: Moderate-level buff spells (Haste, Blessing of Fervor, Stoneskin, Prayer, Freedom of Movement, etc.), a bigger problem-solving toolbox (for dealing with grapples, enchantments, poison, curses, etc.), minor blasting wands (Scorching Ray, Burst of Radiance)

At the very least, I would consider spending all of combat out of the away in full defense not hindering.

But you're not considering the opportunity cost at all.

Sure, someone hiding and going full defense isn't directly hindering the party, but did they take the spot of someone else who would be contributing more? Is there something else they could be doing instead, even as little as Aid Another or plinking with a crossbow? Did the presence of the non-contributing character cause the sub-tier to change?

In any of those circumstances, the non-contributor is hindering the party.

Markavious, I'm assuming you gave me that wand before we started the trip, and I would have accepted then.

"Very well, let's go inside. However, I am a bit curious, Master Hestram... I detected no magical auras on your, however I see you carry your favored sword. Surely a warrior of your caliber would have enchanted your blade by now. Does it have sentimental value, such that you prefer not to alter it?"

Hope I'm not overthinking things here, but a VC with no magical gear? And one of the first things he said was to ask to hold the sword? My spidey-sense is tingling! I'm a bit wary that this might be an ambush.

Worst thing that happened to me:

In "The Disappeared," my brother Jiggy and I were scouting ahead in the Chelish embassy, looking for a particular room that we had the key for. We find it, and Jiggy decides to stay behind in the room while I fetch the rest of the party.

Me: "OK, give me the key so I can get back in."

Jiggy: "No, I'm keeping it."

Me: "Why? It does you no good, and I'll need to get back in the room."

Jiggy: "Because someone might notice you and take the key, then no one can get in."

Me: "But you can let them in. Literally, the key is useless if you have it."

Jiggy: "I'm keeping it. Just go."

So I leave Jiggy in the room with the key, and he locks himself inside. While I'm fetching the rest of the party, he decides to explore, and he triggers a combat, which of course he can't solo, and he goes unconscious. I get back to the room, and of course can't get in because I don't have a key and Jiggy is unconscious. So I pull out my thieves' tools and get to work.

Did I mention that this is in the middle of a fancy dinner party?

Naturally, someone sees me working on the lock (my Disable Device wasn't great, and I found out later I would have needed a natural 20 to pick the lock), and I go through 2 or 3 different false identities before the guards finally arrest me and drag the rest of us away.

Total mission failure, because my brother doesn't understand what keys are for.

I'm interested to see if this zero matter stuff makes it into the MCU films, since it seems like a pretty big deal to get overlooked 70 years in the future.

I'm assuming this is on Earth, or some version of it?

Application Form
Applicant's Name: Jenny Wislicki
Applicant's Age: 18
Current Education: Veterinary Student(-to-be!)
Applicant's Desired Position: Counselor (Wolves), Nature Specialist
Describe Yourself: I love horses! Really I love all animals and I'm going to be studying to be a veterinarian in the fall so I can work with animals all day but I especially love my horse Majesty and I'll be bringing her with me to camp so all the little kiddos can meet her! I have years of experience riding horses and I even draw pictures of horses when I can't ride so that tells you how much I love them.

I also love kids and I think it's a shame how so many grow up in the city and never have a chance to get out in the wild and meet all the friendly animals! I hope all the kiddos will learn to love animals as much as I do!

Character Class: Wild Whisperer Druid

Going for a super-perky, obsessed-with-horses type of girl. The run-on sentences are in-character. It wasn't one of the listed positions, but I pictured her as a horseback riding instructor.

I'm theory crafting a Fighter/barbarian/bloodrager/slayer/ranger/cavalier/brawler/swashbuckler/gu nslinger. Her name will be Lilu-Dallas Multiclass. She will only take single levels in +1 BAB classes. There are 9 core/base classes that can be combined, 10 if you're lawful (lose barbarian to gain Paladin and Unchained monk). Toss in a prestige class like Sentinel or Duelist and you're good!

*holds up character sheet* "Mul. Ti. Class."
