How about this houserule:

You can make a non-lethal CdG. If the target fails the save it's unconscious. If it fails the save by more than 5 it is dead.
Wouldn't that mean you'd never have more than a 25% chance of successfully knocking someone out without killing them?

It's worst than that as a level 1 warrior has a reasonable chance to kill a level 10 fighter. You can both give them 14 Strength and Constitution.

Level 1 warrior damage
Weapon damage: longsword or 3.5x2 = 7
Strength 14: 2 x 2 = 4 (assuming 1 handed)
base dc = +10
Power attack: 2 x 2 = 4
Average dc: 25

Level 10 fighter save
Base: 7
Con: 2 + 2 (assuming +2 con belt) 4
Resistance (such as cloak of resistance) 2
Total save: 13

So as result the Fighter has to roll a 12 or better to save from being knocked out. Which means the Fighter only has 45% chance not to be knocked out, 20% chance to be knocked out and than 35% chance to be killed.

I personally feel that cdg could be used to knock someone out rather than kill them. It uses an already established rule that mimics individuals in action/fantasy settings to knock other individuals no problems.

Hello I'm Staff Sergeant of the Air National Guard, and I'm looking to play or run a game. I'm mostly interested in Pathfinder (outside of the its traditional campaign settings), Star Wars saga and D&D 3.X. I have played some cortex but I'm not really looking to play it. I prefer a mix of roleplay and combat.

1: You can apply sneak attack precision damage to touch base weapons like acid flask etc.
2: You can apply precision damage anyone standing in grease or similar effects.
3: Combat Maneuvers and their appropriate improved versions are combined together.

Back in the beta and to a small extend later after PFS was introduced, I was playing the Runelord Adventure path with Ryken the bumbling rogue (dam you fumbles) is always on the floor. We never got done with campaign, but Ryken will forever be mourned after failing a will save to a haunt resulted in suicide (sneak attack hurts). We played a few PathFinder Society games, but eventually Yoda ate his head and he moved to work for Paizo in what I assume to get someone to cast regeneration so he can get his head back.

I'm a Staff Sergeant in the Air National Guard who just returned from deployment (Afghanistan). So I'm looking to get back to playing some roleplaying, but some members of my group have moved on while I was gone.

Right now there is only two of us, and we plan on taking turn DMing, I will run Star Wars Saga Campaign, and my friend will run the Pathfinder campaign.

We haven't settle on the time or date yet, but so far it seems to be Twenty Sided Store in Brooklyn.

For my Star Wars Saga campaign won't be set in the Star Wars universe, instead it would be set in the modern world. The Roswell crash wasn't a crash but the result of a storm uncovering ancient ruins of a ship and Area 51 was founded to reverse engineer the technology. As the technology was being reversed engineered the Star Wars movie was released as a Plausible deniability as the ships and technology being reversed engineered were similar as any sightings will be claimed of sightings can be dismissed as a hoaxed from a popular movie. However yesterday a massive amount of ships were detected entering hyper space and its destination seem to be of earth.

Looking for the party to be affiliate in some fashion to the U.S. military.

I don't have information on the pathfinder campaign but I will give it as I get it.

I recommend playing an Aasimar Paladin with the Angelblood racial modifiers for +2 STR and +2 CHA. Otherwise, go with a Human for the extra Feat -- Paladins need extra skills and feats in my opinion.

I'm looking to play a Paladin who at first doesn't view him/herself as paladin instead as a Samuari, and only after gaining level 4+ (When spells doesn't the Paladin has a deity of Iomedae). My paladin currently has a oath of Vengeance against a Demon that has killed his/her Diaymo in admist training and thus became a Ronin prior to the completion of training, and has turn to the Pathfinder society as sort of goal.

Due to Pathfinder GM credits my paladin would be level 2 with a 3rd possible (depending if there are no GM available on a couple of days). Although I kind of want Fey Founding as a requirement as sort of connection to Iomedae

Here is what I'm thinking

Human
Str 18 (16 +2 Human)
Dex 10
Con 12
Int 10
Wis 8
Cha 16

Racial Alternate Focus Study (Skill Focus UMD at level 1, level 8 is going to be perception)
Traits
Dangerously Curious
Valashmai Veteran

I plan on taking Power Attack at level 3 and Greater Mercy level 5.

So far I'm taking +1 Skill points for the following skills
Diplomacy, Perception, UMD and Spell craft (although that can be dropped, but it's nice to know what people are casting).

The reason for UMD is so that I can use scrolls/wands of silence, fly.

Although I'm also debating on lowering my Strength to 16 so I can get a 10 on wisdom (which I kind of hate having negative modifers on my characters and this is the first time in a long time using PB).

Or not. I'm quite happy with the way the rules are now. There are plenty of choices as it is, not everything should be available.

I'm not, I wish there some way to improve some items. Heck, I also wish there option to have stat items outside of belts and headbands, or even just allow a +4 to one stat and +2 to an other. It'll allows for slightly more character customization in terms of gear.

Hello I'm looking to start a pathfinder society game. I plan on using Traipse and I'm starting with 00-24 Decline of Glory.

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 1st to 7th level characters (Tiers: 1–2, 3–4, and 6–7).

When the son of a famous Pathfinder gains control of his father's holdings in Taldor, the Pathfinder Society decides to build a new lodge there as a base to explore the many ruins of that crumbling empire. Unfortunately, the Taldan Phalanx has its eye on the holdings and an ancient curse has turned many of the residents into the walking dead. Can you survive the tangled web of Taldor's politics and fight off the echoes of the past or will you, too, see your glory decline?

Wrong, they will go to a Sanitarium. In characters everyone doesn't know what hit points or saves are. What they do know is if someone is barely hurt about to collapse from pain. People may know someone is very hardy, agile or strong sense of self.

Being stuck in the wrong body is bad. Ask a hundred random people about whether they'd like to keep their genitals an I bet I know what they all reply. Nobody needs to do research or understand disorders to know that.

If it happens in a humorous context, or for a limited time, it's still funny "hurr durr ur a gurl" type stuff, and that's ok. It's inherently funny to watch a sexist character suffer karmic punishment at the hands of others like them, for example.
If it lasts a long time, it's body horror on the level of turning into a non-humaniod creature, even if your new form is normal-looking and attractive. Unless it happens to pretty unusual person, of course.

It's a perfectly reasonable fantasy curse however you want to spin it.

I've always liked it because it's fun if presented right and it gives the character something they really want to get rid of without crippling them in combat. It even presents opportunities for character development and doubles as a disguise.
That's a hell of a lot of mileage for an effect that can be described in one sentence. That's elegant design right there.

Thank you, you said what I wanted to say after I put my foot in my mouth.

Agreed. Or the character, I guess. In any case, it would take pretty seriously f'd up individual (player or character) to consider a gender switch a 'curse' demeaning and disastrous enough to negate the overwhelming benefits of this item.

Well not true people who feel like they were born as the wrong gender feel curse. Now imagine if they were once their prefer gender.

Oh bleh, but lets take an example of a Wizard with 15 int

1 rank + 2 Int mod + 3 for class skill will give you +6 modifier, that's enough to automatically learn non prohibited spell, and can invest every other level to keep this edge. But chances are the wizard is going have an 18+, have the fellow wizard in question to aid in the check. So the math would be 4(Mod), +2 Aid Other, +1 rank, +3 Class skill -5 prohibited. So by level 2 they can learn any spell regardless if it's prohibited or not. And from level 3 on they only have to invest 1 rank every other level.

Before you say that the allied wizard can fail the check...

18 Int (4) + 2 rank + 3 class skill gives modifier of 9 meaning rolling a 1 on spell craft checks will result in passing the aid other.

Keep in mind to do this at level 1 they can either take some sort bonus (such as trait, feat like skill focus) or the more common 20 int. So effectively I would say it's a non issue.

Where does it say a wizard takes a penalty on the Spellcraft check for scribing an opposition school spell into his spellbook?

I was looking at here under special here

Quote:
If you are a specialist wizard, you get a +2 bonus on Spellcraft checks made to identify, learn, and prepare spells from your chosen school. Similarly, you take a –5 penalty on similar checks made concerning spells from your opposition schools.

Belt that functions like a belt of giant strength +2 that can be upgraded to +6 by paying normal upgrade cost. In addition it provides constant Divine favor caster level based on wearers HD (can't use UMD to raise it).

Cursed effects...

So adding magic and mithral to an item is house rules, but creating a custom protection from evil item is not? WTF dude? Seriously, wtf? Also, the item to protect vs mental control would take about 22,000 gp (4000 gp base, +6000 gp for protection from law, +6000 gp for protection from chaos, +6000 gp for protection from good), and then you'd still be vulnerable to neutral casters.
