For that I can recommend a cheat sheet. I use one myself and have had several players want me to make them one with their different attack setups and damages broken down.

Replacing the d20 with 3d6 is a thing for a reason. (Need to rework the crit ranges though)

Check the 3.0/3.5 Unearthed Arcana if you have it, there was a section on doing that.

As to the OP my Kender rogue walked into a room that was full of various statues, holes in the walls, and other standard trap looking things. Rolls a 1 on his search check, now even though this isn't an auto failure I'm dubious as the the statement of "you find no traps". My Kender however proudly announces a trap free room and barely manages to reflex and tumble his way to safety with a cry of "I might have been wrong!"

EDIT: Here is a link to the Bell curve rolls.

I hate that I'm the perpetual GM. It's been 4 years since I have sat on the other side of the screen, and longer than than since I had a character get to play in more than 2 games. The worst part is if I bring it up someone will run something but it won't last long enough to enjoy it before it gets dropped, couple that with the fact it probably won't even be pathfinder and it just sucks.

I'm still hoping for PoW sheets myself but I still use these for every character I make even if I use the Generic one.

I have been told it is cheating when you try to outsmart the adventure because it forces the GM to adapt on the fly and that is player vs GM.

I think that is a comparatively new experience, rising from games like Everquest, World of Warcraft, etc.. The GM is a human game engine in this philosophy.

It's REALLY different from anything I'm used to, but I can't knock it if someone else wants to play that way.

No it's not, go look at some of the old writings on how games went back in early TTRPGs. It was in alot of ways players Vs. GMs and was about being smarter than what was thrown at you. Please can people stop blaming MMO's for everything everyone doesn't like in RPGs?

So, and I know I'm going way off topic here, we are gonna just keep using an inflammatory term for no reason other than to beat people over the head with it? I mean that is what it seems like here that until everyone agrees with your definition we are gonna keep on. We can do this with a lot of other threads as well I mean optimization is really just a nice word for being a munchkin, or a powergamer.

The problem with hero points are bookkeeping or hoarding, where players will either forget to keep track of their hero points, or refuse to use them for fear that some better use will come along later.

So I think the best hero points rule is the one I mentioned in the other thread:

The players get as many hero points as they care to use, but for every one the players use, the GM gets one that he or she can use to protect his or her narrative.

This way everybody wins.

I helped the first by giving out a poker chip per hero point they have. With the second issue I have been thinking on which led me to a similar thought to what you had here which i just put up over on the homebrew section.

This is one of the reasons i always use hero points. I don't have to fudge if you have ways to legally change the plot.

So you're OK with everyone taking defiance + heroic defiance, with feat mastery, and becoming unable to die or be crowd controlled for 16 rounds at level 11?

Yep that's kinda right up this systems narrative especially for a martial. One of those "The castle guard watched as Alenthor dropped to his knees from the lich's spell his breath leaving his body. Fear gripped them as the horde of undead began approaching now that the knight had fallen. As the lich raised his staff again prepared to unleash death on the city before him Alenthor gave out a horrendous yell and stood shaking off the coils of death he swung his blade deep into the lich sundering it's soul from it's body. Knowing he had but a few moments before he was truely gone the knight gave a rallying cry and charged forth into the mass of undead before him." kinda things.

I'm from Wisconsin, and while I'm always tempted to sneer at how the Seattle area panics whenever there's snow, there actually are some factors which make it a lot safer to stay in -- generally no salt because they don't want it getting into Puget Sound, tons of hills, and very little equipment for dealing with snow.

I can't understand Southeast Arkansas' reaction to snow. Seriously we get a forecast for like .5-1 inches and the stores become barren of all milk, eggs and bread (but lets not worry with getting bottled water or canned goods). People freak out worrying that its gonna be '73 all over again. We have more wrecks before the snow even really starts falling than once the roads are actually bad. It drives me nuts there will be a light flurry that's not even sticking to the roads and the entire highway is moving at 5mph.

In this week's list of things to be outraged about, the fact that she left 72 hours early is very much lower than the fact that all the senior staff in the State department were fired.

Or that 'religious freedom to remove LGBT people from their federal government jobs, and refuse them service everywhere else' will be implemented in a few days.

Reversing LGBT protections
Right now, it includes overturning a directive that bars discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the federal workforce and those who contract with the government.

That might mean anything, such as a federal employee refusing to serve a gay person due to a religious objection.

Well good news on something at least according to this article. Trump is keeping the Obama order in place.

And here is the text for another feat, which has text indicating that the item used for it actually does take the spell.

Ray Shield (Combat)
You can even deflect rays with your shield.

Prerequisites: Dex 15, Missile Shield, Spellbreaker.

Benefit: You must be using a light, heavy, or tower shield to use this feat. Once per round when you would normally be hit with a ranged touch attack (including rays and similar magical effects), you may deflect it so that you take no damage from it. your shield suffers the full effects of the spell or effect, if applicable.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

Any other effects means what it said, if this was being done barehanded , we wouldn't be arguing that it "still hit your hands so roll a fort save" now would we?

And in fact since unarmed strikes can qualify the target could be deflecting the ray.

Thankies, I knew there was a FAQ about deflecting somewhere.

Not a problem!


2 people marked this as a favorite.

While I know its not the exact same the text from Crane Wing implies that "deflecting" something treats it as a miss.

EDIT: PDT agrees with that as well.

FAQ updated: http://paizo.com/paizo/faq/v5748nruor1fm#v5748eaic9qnz

New text added:
Update 5/29/13: If the attack is deflected, not only does the target take no damage, but any other effects (ability drain, negative levels, harmful conditions, and so on) associated with that attack do not occur. If the deflected attack is a touch spell or other effect that requires "holding the charge," the charge is not expended. For example, if a ghoul's claw attack is deflected, the target is not subject to the ghoul's paralysis ability from the attack. If a shocking grasp touch attack is deflected, the attacker is still "holding the charge." The Crane Wing feat will be updated in a future printing of Ultimate Combat to clarify these issues.

No we have had a major rehashing of the base arguement including if you measure a jump toe to toe or toe to heel, as well as now side arguements based on what does and does not constitue total/maximum speed for the round and how far one can thusly jump.

If you go directly to the product page you can download it from there. When you click the download tab and login it might shift you to another page but if you go immediately back to the product page you can download it.

At somepoint someone will actually read the thead instead of just commenting and notice we have quoted your method at least 3 times now lol.

Trump voters aren't bogeymen who are going to come into your house and drink your milk.
But amazingly, insinuating that specific people on the boards are an imminent physical threat based on who they voted for doesn't violate the Community Guidelines

I did not intend to imply "imminent physical threat". I can see how it could have been taken that way and I apologize for that.

I also don't think they're boogeymen.

I think there is a level well below that, where there is reason to not want to deal with people.

But is it okay to choose to not deal with them simply off of stereotypes and assumptions?

No. It's okay to choose to not deal with them based off their actions. Voting is an action. A conscious, intentional choice.

Now, if I'd said "I choose not to deal with rural, white men because they're probably bigots", that would be "simply off of stereotypes and assumptions". But I didn't say that.

But your assigning a motive to voting for Trump that based off that choice a person is either racist/sexist/homophobic, or is 100% okay with those beliefs. In much the same way that idiots on the right assume everyone who voted for Hillary or Bernie wanted lots of free stuff, all guns taken away, are okay with muslims killing gays, and how idiots assumed if you voted Johnson you just wanted legal weed.

So since we are all stuck here for the time being who wants to argue about Falling Paladins, Caster/Martial Disparity, or Alignment?

*evil laugh*

Well clearly falling paladins leads to martial caster disparity, paladins fall so often that they only work they can get is hiring out as warriors and everyone conflates them as just really bad fighters.

{. . .}

But the reason I am largely apprehensive about adding politics to pathfinder is a simple experience, when someone, a player walks away from your table before a session and no longer wants to return just because "you voted Trump" and not being open to talk about it or even discuss reasoning's, casting aside all the fun gaming sessions and times had in the past.

That is going to happen (probably at about the same rate) regardless of whether the Paizo Messageboards allow political discussions.

I would assume that it is possible that having the coversation on the boards about who was voted for could possibly cause more of this than not having if only because most random strangers won't know who was voted for unless your advertising it, but if you know who I am on Paizo and you really want to know you can check my posting history and find out based on that who I probably voted for. That being said if the only reason someone wouldn't want to play with you is based of only who you voted for, you might be better off without them.

You say that like "who you voted for" this election is such a teeny, insignificant thing of no consequence.

One good thing I got out of the Political threads is that I got to see plenty of people's true colors, and it let me know who i had to be wary of.

I said if that was the only reason, if other things have been said or done that paint a wider picture of a person sure you may not want to be at their table. But if the only thing you know about the guy playing the elven wizard is that he voted Trump and you refuse to game with him at all over that then he isn't the problem.

In KF if a class needs a skill or is supposed to be good at it then they will get their ranks in it free, so no the rogue or wizards won't be better at tracking than a ranger, or better at religion than a cleric simply by having some ranks it.

For the cost of one feat you can get another skill at max ranks on top of your free ones and the ones granted through Int. Also keep in mind that unless something changed everyone also gets one rank per level in a spefic secondary skill. So that fighter has 6 skill ranks a level even with a 0 INT make them a human and grab open minded again and your at 8, still with 0INT mod.

This is why having some semi-permanent method of gaining a flying speed is useful, since you are not considered flat-footed while flying.

Yep, that's right. You need to be flying to avoid falling.

That doesn't mean you can't be flat-footed it means that your not flat-footed simply based off of the fact that you are flying.
