I guess we have different values of unrealistic. Knocking out a rhino unarmed isn't likely, but someone with sufficient skill and strength could probably do it. Moreover, it's a hell of a lot less blatant. Fridge logic is very different from "I HEADBUTT A HOLE IN THE MOUNTAIN".

I suspect that part of the issue is that some notice the unrealistic parts of the system more than others.

Someone with a decent intuitive knowledge of statistics and familiarity with how die rolls work out could notice immediately upon reading the falling rules that falling from orbit will deal about 70 damage, his level 10 wizard can survive that, the high con party barbarian could survive that 4 levels ago and now the barbarian can survive a max damage fall and walk it off. The system is therefore so unrealistic.

Another person might not notice and just see a boat load of damage (a whole 20 d6s, that's a lot of dice) and think the falling rules are pretty realistic.

Lets say the former person notices the "broken" (from a realism standpoint) parts of the system all over the place, and the second fails to notice most of it. Upon hearing something like dual wielding greatswords, the latter person is going to see it as bizarre compared to the realistic-except-when-magic system. The former person is going to look at the latter person and wonder why someone would take issue with wielding somewhat-heavier-than-usual swords when at the level they are playing at scrawny wizards can reliably survive things that turn real people into boney jelly and fighters can put their fists through tank armor (iirc in d20 modern tanks have 20 hardness).

Along this line of thought, behold the fullplate - fifty pounds of metal.

Now, remember, it has a hardness of 10, and 40 hit points.

So, to destroy it all in one blow, you need 50 damage. 100 damage, if it's energy! That's actually really impressive!

Behold, the mighty dragon! This one, specifically, can reliably slag a suit of chainmail!

20d10 ~> 105 damage on average!

On the other hand, 14*5.5+30+10 = 116; this presumes a 14 CON a 15th level fighter can be hit directly, in the face, and still be standing with no reduction in combat ability. That... seems super-heroic to me.

Again - not saying that no one can use it. Rather, I'm saying I've had trouble with things like that in the past and others have as well. Hence it is more workable for more people the most part to create it as a url. That is all. :)

So, uh... did I somehow break Ys: Origins, or is there just no dialogue or any sort of a scene or anything after I beat the Konsclard Sandworm? 'Cause it really feels like there should be dialogue or a scene. Hugo even gets the exclamation points over his head! Twice! And there's this whole empty room!

That's not just strength. There's a lot more going on.

But Strength in PF isn't noted to work the way of telekinesis. It probably should, but it doesn't. they totally worked the same explanation for Superman's powers, so that, for example, he could lift an ocean liner out of the water, and not have it break in half above him under its own weight. he's effectively grabbing the whole boat at the same time, not just where his hands are.

And so, things which break the pure Strength, ease of wielding, center of mass paradigm without some reason why they would do so in violation of physics tend to seem cheesy to me. It's just not realistic (granted, it took me a while to figure out WHY they seemed this way, and I had to work through the above).
Introduce a mechanic to get around this, and I'm totally fine. but as it stands, it's just doesn't work.

The question is: why?

(Obviously the designers think it works more or less pretty well - see Amiri for an example.)

((Yes, I realize you noted "maybe it should" immediately thereafter - this is not a specific challenge toward you, but rather a general question built off of your premise.))

If so what would the craft DCs be?

Why would you want Kevlar? It's a fairly useless material in fantasy world, about the only thing it would provide a decent AC against is sling bullets.

Kevlar is a fabric made of thread, it is fairly easy to cut, and a knife will cut through it easily. It is difficult to break, which is why it stops bullets. I suppose it would make good rope or nets.

... so... quilt cloth armor? :D

Zhangar wrote:

@ Tacticslion - a victim of poor wording perhaps? "You convert material(s) into a product that is of the same material(s)" would probably do the trick.

Though interestingly, the 3.X PH examples all work as a like to like conversions - raw wood to a wooden bridge, raw hemp to a hemp rope, raw cloth to clothing.

A fabricate that's restricted to "like-to-like" can still do a lot (clothing, gemcutting, goldwork, leather armor, chainmail, dragonhide armor, swords, etc.) but hits some amusing limitations.

(Notwithstanding the limitation of 11th+ level wizards who can sit around and cast a few fabricates a day are actually pretty damn rare, outside of doomsday organizations designed to challenge PCs.)

Aaaaactually...

Also, Leather Armor needs treated leather (which means it's not a single material, really), chainmail is worthless without it's padded undercoats, and swords are expressly made of multiple materials in the same way that a spear is.

Quote:
Thus, you can fabricate a wooden bridge from a clump of tress,

Never seen a manufactured bridge of leaves before. Similarly, never seen a wooden bridge made entirely without rope and/or stone, or at least without being successfully embedded into such or the nearby environment... unless fabricate just means you knock the trees over the gorge, which would be a really weird thing for it to try to indicate.

But sure, let's presume it makes a product (or "really" a finished good?) that is simply a bridge that sets on top of nothing and covers nothing - it is entirely self-reliant, like one of those display bridges or something, I guess that just go over the ground?

Quote:
a rope from a patch of hemp,

Fair 'nough.

Quote:
clothes from flax or wool, and so forth.

Also fair 'nough (though I am curious how such clothes stay on? Can you make anything other than full-body "robe-like" clothes?)

However, the kicker:

Quote:
You must make an appropriate Craft check to fabricate articles requiring a high degree of craftsmanship (jewelry, swords, glass, crystal, and the like).

The very first two items on the list require multiple materials. The third either requires multiple materials, or is really boring. The third is... I don't know, there are so many things that fall under "crystal" that it's really hard to guess what they mean. Maybe exceptionally fine "glass" (that isn't made of actual "glass", but you know what I mean)? Regardless "and the like" is a clear indicator that items other than jewelry or swords can be made of multiple materials.

QUASI-EDIT: Actually, after looking it up, glass is actually "multiple" materials, while crystal is as varied as I was thinking, but they were likely referring to a blended crystal "lead glass".

The thing is, either the spell actively and actually doesn't do anything in game-terms, or actually allows you to do what it indicates. To me, it's a question of reading the game in a way that makes it mostly work as a means for allowing the player to do stuff. But that's just me. I understand that many GMs don't share that view, as they like harder limits. Whatever works, one supposes.

It's worth noting that I'm exhausted enough that I misread (via dyslexia) nearly every word of your link here when attempting my "fast read" (I usually read things three or four times really quickly before scanning them a little more slowly).

So. Dagggum. Tired. From 9-12 we were outside at my three-year-old's "Trike-a-thon" where his entire class rode their trikes around and around for charity. It was... adorable. Their class made over $500! Three-year-olds! It's great!

But we're exhausted.

Left me just enough time to scarf lunch, set my three'fer down for a "nap" for an hour (emphasis on the quotation marks), post, use the restroom, feed my infant, and then get up and go out to infant doctor's appointment.

Today. Today is a busy day.

Huh. This post made me realize just how different the three depictions of Kyra really are:

Original

Mythic

Unchained

The lips, the nose, the skin, and even the eyes and eyebrows are all definitely different.

I really thought the Unchained one was supposed to be Seelah (maybe with a weird art mistake, or even talking about the multiclassing thing by giving Seelah Kyra's stuff or something) at first because of the radical darkening of her skin tone, but it really doesn't look like Seelah at all.

Mr. Reynolds' second take is very consistent with the first, though her depiction has varied quite a bit; especially the comics (though these two seem pretty close).

Very nifty!

I wonder about the other iconics...

Hm... I'm pretty sure I didn't change the modifier (I remembered my results, as that's what the DCs functioned off of, but I had to work out my original rolls).

But let's test that one, to avoid ruling it out for sure.

Test: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (12) + 8 = 20

Initial Modifier: +4; Preview: initial result "Test: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (12) + 4 = 16"

EDIT: fixed the "ooc" tag, clarified a point; the changed modifier doesn't seem to change the roll. Yeah, I've no idea what happened.

For the record: GM approved of keeping the post, but I'd still like some sort of guidelines about how 'vigilant' I need to be in the future.

I thought I've been ninja'd a couple of times after Preview with the dice rolls remaining the same, recently, so that's why I was confused when this occurred.

So, I was posting in a PbP, and crafted my post based off of dice rolls the random generator made for me (quoted in its entirety for posterity), but by the time I finished, someone else had posted, and my dice had radically altered.

I didn't think that happened anymore! I thought that, once previewed, they stayed semi-locked.

Was I just really wrong? Did something else happen to change my rolls by 8 7* and by 9, respectively? 'Cause... that's... harsh. And a lot of work lost, if so.

By the way: I'm not complaining about the actual folk who run and maintain this site, or even your code! I just need to know how obsessively I need to hit "Preview" in order to know what my posts are.

It's worth noting that under the Technology Guide, creating tech items follows the same rules as magic item crafting - except that in addition to having an appropriate feat, you need access to a lab that can create the fine components necessary.

A wizard trying to bypass the lab with fabricate is going to be sad panda, because well...

Fabricate wrote:
You convert material of one sort into a product that is of the same material. Creatures or magic items cannot be created or transmuted by the fabricate spell.

First off, fabricate fails outright because trying to make tech items follows the same rules as making magic items. Making a laser gun with fabricate is beyond the scope of the spell.

Assuming the wizard actually has technologist and the other appropriate feats...

Well, think of how many different types of materials go into just making a cell phone.

A wizard trying to build a modern item without a proper lab might be casting fabricate dozens of times just to try get all of the components together. And then be left cursing, because your final product is both metal and plastic, and fabricate is going to go nope at trying to combine the two.

Huh.

Wizards putting dwarf smiths out of business with fabricate is a non-issue, because most armor is actually too complicated (i.e., has leather and cloth components) for a fabricate spell to handle.

Hell, a spear is actually too complicated for fabricate to handle!

That is quite interesting. And sadly effectively makes the spell not only useless, but actively unable to perform the examples given in the old Player's Handbook*. While the rules may well have changed since then (I'm not looking at present), I don't believe so.

It seems that, in this case, the spell actually functioning should take precedence (unless the only thing it can make is quarterstaffs).

While I salute this interpretation for maintaining why the spell doesn't trump the world, it doesn't really satisfy for the spell actually doing anything.

Since they changed it, it can be presumed it was intentional, though that doesn't automatically follow. I do have a question for those who put forth this interpretation, however: can anyone point out a set of items that fall under the bolded part? How does that work?

Also, the very first sentence does not limit the "material" to a single substance. It can easily be read, "You convert material of one sort (such as iron, coal, and wood) into a product that is created of the same material (such as a dagger)."

I see the argument "of one sort", however the definition includes,

Quote:

of one sort or another; of an indefinite kind.

Also, of a sort.

With this, and the clear history of term (the exact quote from which the text was taken), it seems entirely legal, but kind of "meh" to claim that fabricate doesn't do exactly what it says it does (make "products").

Another alternative, if you like, is the "simple class templates" - simply layer one onto the characters' current class. You might not like it - it might not mesh your "feel" - but I mention it as another possible idea, in case you'd like to try it. In that manner, you may decide to grant, say, the Advanced or other templates instead of gestalting.

Hm... possibly. Thanks!

RE: the FAQ - again, it's a perception issue. You feel it stops strictly there, whereas I take it as a general precedent (specifically for things like this).

Your points are solid, and I think more mechanically sound (and I'd love to see a "mechanically solid" revision thereof), but, for my purposes, I think it's just easier to remember a +2 bonus at the end of everything else, and add it to your dice rolls (all d20 and damage) and basic defenses.
