Every year.

Every year, I look over at the RPG Superstar button, all shiny and proud and glittery and probably a waste of my time but maybe not and it'd still be nice to make something for a change and why not at least try?

Every year I tell myself, "Yes. This year. This year I'll try. I'll really give it a shot. No guts, no glory. Let's do it. This time, it's personal. For real this time. All in. Any second now."

And every year I don't do s%#$. Every year I say, "Eh, maybe next year."

Well, no more. I figure I can't be the only one who's procrastinated on these, and next year I'm actually going to put in my submission. Most likely, I'll end up moping about being left out afterward, but I will be moping in a much better crowd!

So here's the thread for those of us who have a tendency to waffle. It's time to stop waffling and say, unequivocally, with no margin for error, "I will give it a shot!...as long as nothing crazy comes up, like me getting super sick or my dog dying or my roof being caved in by falling sperm whales! Huzzah!"

No more excuses for me. If I don't put in a submission next time...well, people know where to find me.

Just do it!

It's a fine choice, to be sure.

And yes, the content in this book is geared towards tosculi as a PC choice, where in the Southlands I believe they're dealt with mainly as a threat and the info there is more the purview of the GM. I had a lot of fun writing this one.

I think an added problem is they're using the same style of cinematography. The aerial shots of the Louisiana bayou were beautiful and eerie. Aerial shots of L.A. set me to thinking that I'll be landing soon and hopefully my connecting flight won't be delayed.

Big project coming together nicely. With a little luck added to a competent crew, this playtest doc should see the light of day soon.

1. I am a wizard.

2. I want to take the Scouting Summons feat as my next feat.

3. I need to have the ability to cast magic jar.

4. As a wizard, I cannot cast magic jar, even if I own a spellbook with the spell in it, unless I'm at least 9th level.

4. If I do not have magic jar in my spellbook, or at least a spellbook, then I cannot prepare and cast magic jar, even if I am 9th level.

5. Therefore, in order to take this feat, I must be a wizard of at least 9th level with magic jar in a spellbook from which I can prepare spells.

5a. If I want to utilize this feat, then I need to be able to cast a spell that summons a single creature, which I can then possess "as per magic jar (but with no receptacle necessary)."

Gaining the feat seems straightforward enough. However, the wording of the use of the feat is a bit unclear. It seems to say that you can possess the summoned creature without actually casting magic jar, rather than saying you can cast magic jar on the creature without using a receptacle.

Geez, clickbait much?

*blows raspberry at OP*

congratulations on a mature comment. How about actually contributing? The simple fact of the matter is that the class is horridly broken, and its kinda heart breaking because the class LOOKS cool. It SOUNDS cool. I mean the class IS freaking cool... until you try it and find it rather lack luster...

Thanks. I try really hard to be uplifting, much like your clickbait title and gloom-and-doom post lacking any real constructive criticism. I gave it what I consider the deserved response.

It says right in the description of the feat you linked: "When using the charge action, you deal an additional +2d6 points of damage with a melee weapon on a successful attack. Do not multiply this damage in the case of a critical hit."

On a charge, add +2d6 to damage. Do not multiply the damage on a critical hit. Pretty self-explanatory.

Also:

Quote:

Multiplying Damage: Sometimes you multiply damage by some factor, such as on a critical hit. Roll the damage (with all modifiers) multiple times and total the results.

Note: When you multiply damage more than once, each multiplier works off the original, unmultiplied damage. So if you are asked to double the damage twice, the end result is three times the normal damage.

Exception: Extra damage dice over and above a weapon's normal damage are never multiplied.

  • Finish 15 pregenerated characters for Interface Zero 2.0 playtest document
  • Finish piece for Legendary Games
  • Make pasta salad for dinner
  • Finish pulling weeds in backyard/driveway

Glad that show didn't kill his career.

You're getting sloppy, Freehold. As any true geek knows, you can't truly hate something unless you know as much about it as those that love it. Lack of obsession just shows you don't truly hate the Whedonverse and its creator, you're simply a fair-weather hater. Now get out there and rent the show and the subsequent movie and don't come back until you're properly seething. It's sad to see you get this sloppy.

On a side note, I was hoping he'd be considered for the role of Black Panther, but I'm perfectly happy to see him play the antagonist again, especially if they give the role some depth and he can really make it shine.

It has three points, actually.

You can use it one handed, allowing for a shield or a net, or whatever.

This is like asking what the point of weapons are when there's magic in the game.

Excellent. I had a wonderful time. Big bag of swag at check-in. Ran a couple of games for Kobold Press and had two tables of fine players. First time I've ever attacked the party with the antagonist's lawn. The new venue has plenty of space to accommodate the con, and the hotel staff was very helpful. Put some faces (and sometimes names) to a few more forum handles and had some great conversations. Good times.

I will be arriving late Saturday night and would LOVE a pick up game. Never been to Paizo Con before, how does one find such a game and would it be PFS?

Typically you just poke around the open gaming rooms and see who's doing what? There are plenty of people who don't attend the banquet, as seating is limited, so the chances of finding a game, PFS or otherwise, is pretty good.

Forgive me if someone has already mentioned it and I missed it because of all the posts of people accusing other people of badwrongfun, but the idea of bad air as a hazard is already in the game. So whether you think it's a good idea or not, rules have been established to accommodate the idea.

Quote:

Bad Air (CR 1 or 4)

An invisible hazard, pockets of low-oxygen gas present a danger to miners and spelunkers as well as cavern-delving adventurers. Nonflammable gases such as carbon dioxide or nitrogen are CR 1 and require a DC 25 Survival check to notice. Creatures breathing the air must make a Fortitude save (DC 15 + 1 per previous check) each hour or become fatigued. After a creature becomes fatigued, slow suffocation sets in (Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook 445). Creatures holding their breath can avoid these effects.

Flammable vapors such as coal gas are much more dangerous (CR 4). The gases displace breathable air in the lungs, causing fatigue as described above. In addition, any open flame or spark causes an explosion for 6d6 points of damage (Reflex save DC 15 for half) to all in the cavern or within 5 feet of an entrance. The fire burns away the oxygen in the air, leaving it unbreathable for 2d4 minutes. After an explosion, flammable gas usually takes several days to build up to dangerous levels again.

To be honest, I always got the impression that this is where the term "gillmen" originates. As noted earlier, I call them Low Azlanti - because that seems like the name they would more likely use for themselves.

"Low" Azlanti? That, madam, is classist. We prefer Submarine Azlanti, or Below-Sea-Level Azlanti.

I realize Barry is young, but sometimes I get really tired of him--whenever someone gives him sound advice--turning around and ignoring it.

Wells: "Don't change the timeline. It's dangerous."

Barry: "Okay." Immediately goes out and changes everything.

West: "We'll get him, but you need to be patient."

Barry: "Okay." Immediately starts giving Wells the grumpy face and dropping vague comments in his grumpy voice.

It has gotten to the point that whenever someone older and wiser is speaking to him, I can rely on him to do the exact opposite, thus providing added conflict for that episode. I really enjoy the show, but that part is getting tired and predictable.

I´m sure that this is all a coincidence...

Indeed. I've never taken inspiration from anything I've read, nor do I give nods to things I've enjoyed or would have been inspired by, if indeed I was ever inspired by anything, which I am clearly not.

Spoiler:
I'm a complete liar (and a bad one, apparently). Yes, Conrad definitely was on my mind when I was working on this one.

His name was Kurtz in the original draft, and a definite nod to Conrad's novella. Apparently my homage was too on-point for the final edit.
