Hi guys,

I wanted to play something different for the skulls and shackles campaign, so I decided to do a heavy multiclass character. As another challenge he is a small melee based character (gnome).

There wasn't a plan, so he evolved. In fact I started as level 2 antipaladin and picked every interesting option.

But now I am somewhat in a dead end.
The next general feat I want to take is reckless rage to improve my damage and the possibility to extend multiclassing into slayer sounds nice.

Optimization is not important.
I just need some ideas to move on ;)

Bard and Lore Oracle

You substitute dex with charisma for the most relevant purposes and you get your charisma mod on all knowledge skills.
Later you can add 2 levels of paladin to get really gold saves


My druid:
AC is the good old big cat (with light armor, improved bite, iron will and toughness)

I wanted a little bit more strength than a caster druid needs

Should I change combat casting to heavy armor proficiency?

I think I'll go with the druid. I think I can easier roleplay a druid than a smart, squishy wizard :)
So if a druid is also mechanically a good idea I will go for it.

It should be a caster druid, because we already have two melee classes.

Any suggestions how to handle a druid in combat?
Wildshape into an air elemental, stay out of reach of the bad guys and support the party?
Let them do the work together with my AC and the summonings?


Hi guys,

I can't decide between a druid and a wizard.
The other members are: a cavalier, life oracle and a alchemist/barbarian melee. Sometimes a ranger (Trapper archetype), a rogue or a monk joins the party.

level 8
25 point buy
standard wealth per level
Most paizo products allowed

Since it will be my 5th character in this campaign it should have some staying power.
There were a few bad choices and bad luck :(

Augment summoning is a must and I need some sort of battlefield control as well as hp and good saves. Maybe I take Summon Good Monster too.

What would you suggest?


Hi,

I have two questions:

1. Does a non human character with the eldritch heritage feat have access to the imperious bloodline (only available to human sorcerers)?

2. Feat:

Quote:
Benefit: Each time you cast a summoning spell that conjures more than one creature, add one to the total number of creatures summoned.

Summon Monster:

Quote:
...1d3 creatures of the same kind from the 1st-level list

When I roll a 1, how many monster are summoned?


Quote:


Any enlarged item that leaves an enlarged creature's possession (including a projectile or thrown weapon) instantly returns to its normal size.

I would say no


Does the +1 bonus to ranged attacks from the bracers count for the ranged flurry from the Zen Archer (monk)?

If so, I have found a bug in hero labs ;)


Thanks for the advice

Is there any possibility that a shaken enemy loses his dex bonus to ac?

I think, if we go evil I will go on as Barbarian. The oracle curse will be lame so I can ragecycle.

Otherwise oath of vengeance and staying paladin would be the best.

Do think the cruel weapon enhancement would be recommended?

Eldritch heritage is a nice route, but it is very feat intensive, I don't think I can afford it.


Hi guys,

I planning on playing a high Cha, low Dex melee character.

My stats (25 PB)
16 Str
7 Dex
14 Con
12 Int
12 Wis
16 Cha

Race: Aasimar with +2 Str and +2 Cha and scion of humanity

1. Paladin (or Antipaladin if we decide to go evil)
2. Paladin
3. Oracle (lore with sidestep revalation)

Feats: Scion of war and PA

What should I do next? stay on Paladin (Antipaladin)? Any other class?
Cournogon Smash and Intmidating prowess?

All paizo products allowed

thx


The oracle has 4 feats on level 5. works only with human but not assimar.
(if it has also have scion of humanity as you say, otherwise huntsmaster would not be allowed)

How does the fighter get 22 strength? His stats are way above average...

The horse is the AC of the oracle, but the fighter rides it? Why???
The horse doesn't have a single trick, that means they have to push it every time (DC 25)

And remember: the animal companion is a NPC. You control it.


You can smite like a paladin at your characterlevel (general rule)
But you can do it only once per day (spezial rule)

Special trumps general


Aasimar Azata-Blooded Life Oracle
Revelation channel energy
Feat selektive channeling
All favorite class bonus into the +1/2 level for one revelation (channel of course)

This will provide enough healing. Later you can get life link (fey foundling recommend)


Just for me to understand:

SLAs are treated as arcane "spells" for prerequistes for feats, PrC and so on?

This means, an aasimar Cleric 3 / Wizard 1 (with 3 ranks in knowledge arcane/religion) will meet the prerequisites for the mystic theurge?

Pretty strong to have a nearly full cleric with additional arcane spells.


Thank you, guys


Hello,

my lore oracle has the sidestep secret (cha to ac and reflex save instead of dex)
Enlarge person lowers your dex by 2 points.

With the enlarge spell my dex will be 2 points lower and it hurts my initiative and CMD, but I suffer no penalties to AC and reflex saves, right?


Bard Archaeologist

Access to cure spells, a bonus to perception and disable device and can disable magical traps (at 6th level)


Hello guys,

I want to build a character that is hard to kill.
It should do enough damage to not be ignored by intelligent monsters.
The saves are very important because I lost the last 3 characters by failing my saves.

This is the best I can do, but I think one of you has surely a better idea or some hints to improve my build.

Extra Rage

You can use your rage ability more than normal.
Prerequisite: Rage class feature.
Benefit: You can rage for 6 additional rounds per day.
Special: You can gain Extra Rage multiple times. Its effects stack.

Prerequisite: rage

Half orcs favoured class Option:
Barbarian Add +1 to the barbarian's total number of rage rounds per day

Prerequisite: Barbarian but no rage


Can I use my favourite class bonus to get additional rage rounds if I am a barbarian but haven't got the rage class feature yet?

The mad dog archetype barbarian archetype get rage later but the dwarf/half orc barbarian favoured class option does not require rage.

So can a half orc mad dog get additional rage rounds as favoured class bonus before level 4?


Additional Damage Dice: Some magic weapons deal additional dice of damage. Unlike other modifiers to damage, additional dice of damage are not multiplied when the attacker scores a critical hit.

CRB magic items weapons


He can play a sorcerer with sylvan bloodline.
Or a cleric/inquisitor with animal/feather domain.

Both will give you a animal companion.

You have to take boon companion to bring the ac to charakter level.

Summon Monster and Summon Nature's Ally must place the creature on a surface. You can't summon things into the air, even if they fly.

Edit: From the Magic chapter, Conjuration:

Quote:
A creature or object brought into being or transported to your location by a conjuration spell cannot appear inside another creature or object, nor can it appear floating in an empty space. It must arrive in an open location on a surface capable of supporting it.

Wouldn't that mean you have to summon a swimming creature on the ground of the sea instead of summoning it somewhere in the water?


Play summoner and build your eidolon like a dragon.


Hi,

I have a few questions about the druid.

1. Can I use wild shape and then cast strong jaw on myself? (natural spell provided)

2. If I use wild shape to change into an elemental, can I use weapons and wear armor of the same size as the elemental is?

3. Can I take the feat improved natural attack even when I possess the natural attack only in wild shape?

4. The Aasimar feat celestial servant gives my animal companion the celestial template and changes it to a magical beast.
Does this means that my animal companion gest a d10 as HD and fast BAB progression like a magical beast?

Because a wizard can buy more spells and add them to his spellbook. This can be done as easily as adding any equipment to your gear list. Sorcerers do not have the same luxury.

Who decides which equipment is available?

As easy as a GM can say there is no sword he also can say there is no scroll in the shop.
This means of course even a wizard doesn't have always the right spell in his spellbook.

So if a wizard is more powerful than any other class, it's the GM fault.
(you can replace wizard with any other class)


Why does everybody assume a wizard can cast all spells available?

A wizard gets 3 + int mod level 1 spells at the beginning, With every new level he gets 2 additional spells.

This will end up in 41 + int mod spells.

A sorcerer gets 48 spells + bloodline spells
(without level 0)

So what if the GM don't let you copy any spell?

It's GMs choice how powerful a wizard will be.
In worst case he could end with less spells than a poor sorcerer :)


Hi everyone!

Our group start the Skulls and Shackles AP. I am allowed to play a Samsaran with the Mystic Past Life racial trait.

I will play a Cleric of Besmara with a Wisdom of 18 after racial mods.
This gives me 5 divine spells of other classes to add to my spell list.

What spells should I take?
I want to play the cleric as a caster/range, so my first thought was Gravity Bow or Aspect of an Falcon.
Maybe Feast of Ashes as 2th Level spell (don't know it sounds nice to me)

Thanks in advance


Here is my first version of the Paladin of Besmara
(It looks like a Paladin but it isn't one! Iomedae doesn't kill kittens and everybody is fine who thinks paladins have to be LG. hint: Never look at page 122 in the APG!)

Alignment: CN
Code: Spread chaos, plunder as much as you can, protect the ship and it's crew.

Proficient with all simple weapons, pirate weapons (pirates of the inner sea), rapier, whip, sap, net and medium armor. (no shields or heavy armor)

Class skills: add swim and intimidate, remove ride

1. Aura of chaos, smite lawful, detect lawful
2. chaotic touch (like Lay on hands but heals chaotic creatures and harms lawful)
Besmaras Bond: every friendly member of the crew count as chaotic for the Besamara Paladin (replace divine Bond)
3. Mercy/Cruelty At level three and every three levels thereafter select one mercy and the equal cruelty. Chaotic creatures receive the effects of mercies and lawful creatures suffers the effects of the cruelty.
4. Channel Energy: on chaotic creatures it works like channel positiv energy and on lawful creatures it works like channel negativ energy
Gain Favorite Terrain: Water (like a Ranger)
5. Besmaras curse: Every enemy currently on your ship (or attacking it) count as lawful for the Besmara Paladin
7. Gain Terrain dominance: water (like a Horizon Walker)
11. Aura of Justice replace smite evil with smite lawful
Gain Terrain mastery: water (like a horizon walker)
14. the weapons cout as chaotic for overcoming damage reduction
17. gain DR 5/lawful
20. DR 10 /lawful

All other Paladin features are unchanged
Spells: add Freedom of movement and change all evil related spells to their lawful related equals.

Please give me some advice on this and excuse my bad english
I am sorry ;)

Oh look!
cute evil kittens!


Hi everyone!

We playing Skulls and Shackles at the moment and we managed a TPK at first level.

The DM gave me a hint that could play a Paladin of Besmara if I do the adaptation.
But I have no idea how to go on.

How to build a CN Paladin?

Some abilities should be changed for sure e.g. aura of good and smite evil
I would change it into aura of chaos and smite lawful since aura of evil and smite good wouldn't fit into a CN Paladin.

Can you give me some advice on building and playing such a paladin?


Maybe not what you are looking for but a 10th level Assassin has an ability (angel of death) makes resurrection difficult.
Raise dead and resurrection won't work only true resurrection will.


I love the idea of a small berserker, so I build an archetyp for this.

Here we go:

add escape artist to class skills
not proficient with any armor or shields

Frenzy Movement: +20 ft movement This bonus applies only if the berserker is small or smaller and not wearing armor or heavy load.

A small or smaller wolverine berserker gains +2 dodge bonus to AC at first level.

Wolverine Rage: +2 Str, +2 Dex, +3 to Will saves, +2 natural armor.
No AC penalty while raging. Only small or smaller berserker can enter wolverine rage and the rage stops immediately if the berserker is bigger than small. Otherwise it works like the rage ability.
This replaces rage.

Agility Strike: At 3rd level a wolverine berserker gains her Dex bonus to hit rolls. At 9th level she adds 150% of her Dex bonus to hit and at 15th level she adds 200% of her Dex bonus to hit rolls.
At 6rd level a wolverine berserker gains her Dex bonus to damage rolls. At 12th level she adds 150% of her Dex bonus to damage and at 18th level she adds 200% of her Dex bonus to damage rolls.
This bonus only applies to small or smaller berserker. These are precise damage and is not multiplied on critical hits.
This replaces all trap sense and damage reduction.

Greater Wolverine Rage: The bonuses increase to +4 Str, +4 Dex, +3 natural armor and +4 to will saves
This replaces greater rage

Mighty Rage: The bonuses increase to +6 Str, +6 Dex, +4 natural armor and +5 to will saves.
This replaces mighty rage

At 4th level the wolverine berserker gains +2 dodge bonus to AC. At 12th level this bonus increase to 4.
At 8th level the wolverine berserker gains a +2 bonus to hit and damage rolls. At 16th level this bonus increase to +4
This bonuses only apply for small or smaller berserker.
This replaces the rage powers at 4th, 8th, 12th and 16th level.

What do you think?


Quote:
The subject can tread on air as if walking on solid ground.

You can be tripped on solid ground so I think it works.


Quote:
Head (Ex): An eidolon grows an additional head. The eidolon does not gain any additional natural attacks for the additional head, but the additional head does allow the eidolon to take other evolutions that add an additional attack to a head (such as a bite, gore, or breath weapon). This evolution can be selected more than once.

With an additional head you can take breath weapon more than once.


Thanks for clarification!


I have a question about the beastform mutagen.

The 3rd level beastform mutagen says that you gain 1 ability from the spell "alter self"
This doesn't mean you change size when you get the +2 dex, right?

This bonus is a size bonus, like the spell description says.

So what happen if I cast enlarge person?

I will get a -2 dex size bonus from enlarge person but I have already a +2 size bonus from beastform mutagen.

Size bonuses never stacks with each other.

So what happens if I get the beastform mutagen with +2 dex and I cast enlarge person on myself?

Is one effect dispelled or does the dex penalty and bonus even it out?


As I know the additonal arms don't give me more actions per round, so I can't use them for buffing.

My GM allow core rulebook, APG and UM/UC
Other sources are not allowed. Maybe I can ask him to make a few excetions.
He don't like massive multiclassing either.

I am now on a vivisectionist/beastmorph 3 + Barbarian x
This gives me +4 str mutagen, +2 str alter self and +4 str rage bonus for a total of +10
Additional 2d6 sneak damage.

Looks good for one round

Thanks for the advice!


bbt
Sadly I don't think the GM will allow this trait.

Lokiron
You are right, I misread the spell.

Ok, I am down to +8 Str in one round. Are there more options?


Hi folks!

I need some advice. Our GM likes to surprise us, so we won't have much time to buff.
We mostly buff in combat.
So I need an effective melee build with fast buffing abilities.

My thoughts until now:

Vivisectionist 1/Barbarian x
with boots of speed

Free action to activate the haste effect, standard action1 drink mutagen, standard action2 drink a potion of enlarge person (I can create it with the alchemist), free action start rage and with the move action engage the enemy.

That gives me +10 Str and large size.

Is there a more efficient way?
Character Level 9-10, 25 points buy, Core, Advanced and both Ultimates allowed except metamagic rods and the eastern classes/weapons.
The most expensive item may cost 1/3 of the average wealth per level.
Maybe some little things from other paizo sources but don't rely on that.


Take a look at the Knife Master rogue archetyp.
Sneak attack improves from d6 to d8 if you wield daggers


Thank you for the advice.

Usually I play a barbarian or fighter or sorcerer/cleric.

The other four characters are: oracle (nature), cavalier, monk and a ranged fighter.
Playing sorcerer ends in summoning and watching the fight...
For buffing there is already a sorcerer cohort.

So I want a different melee character, maybe with buffs or other spells.

The Orc bloodline isn't allowed, maybe I could talk the GM into allowing Boon Companion. Every form of dinosaur is forbidden, neither as wild shape nor as animal companion.
I could take the big Cat for sure, but I don't know about the wild shape alternates.

Assuming I'm allowed to take Boon companion:

Race human
Str: 15 (+2 racial, +1 at 4th level)
Dex: 14
Con: 15 (+1 at 8th level)
Int: 8
Wis: 14
Cha: 13

1-3 Barbarian
4 Monk (Martial Artist)
5-x Druid

Feats:
1 Power attack / Skill Focus (Knowledge Planes)
3 Eldritch Heritage (Abyssal)
5 Natural spell (Do you think I need this feat?)
7 Boon Companion
9 Shaping Focus
11 Imp. Eldritch heritage (Abyssal)

As Animal companion I would take a Big Cat and my favorite wild shape form would be the earth elemental.
If I'm can't take Boon Companion I would take the Wolf domain to get Imp. trip for free


Hello everyone

I've played around with the dragon disciple prestige class but I'm not happy with it.

We play the Kingmaker AP and our characters are now at level 8.
At the moment I play a sorcerer but I want something more exciting.

One of my ideas is a dragon disciple. Here are my thoughts until now:
25 point buy, Core, APG, UC, UM and the bestiaries are allowed.

Race human
Str: 15 (+2 racial, +1 at 4th level)
Dex: 14
Con: 15 (+1 at 8th level)
Int: 10
Wis: 16
Cha: 7

1 Monk (Martial artist)
2-5 Druid
6 Sorcerer Draconic/Empyreal
7-11 Dragon Disciple
12 -x barbarian

empyreal sorcerer allows me to dump cha, the dip into monk gives me more AC.
I favor wildshape over form of dragon because it is more versatile.
Enough level to take the +4 str and then go further with barbarian.

Feats would include shaping focus and power attack.

Would this be a decent melee fighter? Or is there another way to get a somewhat different melee character?


Ok, thank you


Does a teleport or a dimensional door need a line of effect?

The last time I have played, one of my players wanted to teleport through a wall of suppression, which blocks any line of effect.
The destination was surrounded by those walls, so it didn't matter from which direction they tried it.

I found this sentence in the prd:

Quote:

Line of effect:

You must have a clear line of effect to any target that you cast a spell on or to any space in which you wish to create an effect.

With a teleport you create the effect that you are at the destination.

That would mean you need a line of effect.

Do I understand it right?
Does a Wall of suppression blocks a teleport/dimensional door?
