A fireball spell generates a searing explosion of flame that detonates with a low roar and deals 1d6 points of fire damage per caster level (maximum 10d6) to every creature within the area. Unattended objects also take this damage. The explosion creates almost no pressure.

You point your finger and determine the range (distance and height) at which the fireball is to burst. A glowing, pea-sized bead streaks from the pointing digit and, unless it impacts upon a material body or solid barrier prior to attaining the prescribed range, blossoms into the fireball at that point. An early impact results in an early detonation. If you attempt to send the bead through a narrow passage, such as through an arrow slit, you must "hit" the opening with a ranged touch attack, or else the bead strikes the barrier and detonates prematurely.

The fireball sets fire to combustibles and damages objects in the area. It can melt metals with low melting points, such as lead, gold, copper, silver, and bronze. If the damage caused to an interposing barrier shatters or breaks through it, the fireball may continue beyond the barrier if the area permits; otherwise it stops at the barrier just as any other spell effect does.

Based on bolding I would say you should be good if you can fire through the hole aiming through should be no problem.

What's different between SKR's views and the FAQ in regards to Take 10?

Don't have a handy quote but I believe SKR had said that the check itself couldn't prevent take 10. So a jump over a lava pit was allowed even though lava was hot and dangerous. However if you were being shot at no luck. (I would have said no dice but you actually need them for this)

I'll have to look over spells and such to see if there is any other decent options. Do keep in mind rogues can get shadow hand manuvers.

As for Magical array I run it that it's from a 9 level list unless it only appears on a smaller list.

See the example I posted above for Roleplay vs Rollplay.

Still not seeing the exclusivity here. I can in the middle of combat get into my characters head mocking and taunting my foes as they fall around me, choosing my targets as a cunning swordsman would calling out those that hang back with bows as cowards. All without a dice being rolled or needed beyond each swing of my blade.

This is the problem with feats is that they are not just things you can do anymore they are things that affect your heritage or background which really can't turned off.

Based on the how some of these rules readings come across you would need to add length to a lot of things. A lot of small changes over a big book is still a lot of page count possibly increased.

You can't take free actions when it's not your turn and its probably not your turn when you're making the save, so free action isn't the model you're looking for.

"To implant a trick, the mesmerist must take a standard action and either touch a willing creature or implant the trick in himself. A creature can be the subject of only one mesmerist trick at a time. The mesmerist can activate the trick as a free action when a triggering condition is met (as defined in the trick's description), even if it isn't his turn. The subject must be within medium range (100 feet + 10 feet per level) for the mesmerist to trigger the trick."

Hmmm.... I think you can take free actions when it is not your turn.

Only the ones specifically called out to be allowed so.

I'm not sure anyone here is arguing that being offended by something should be used as a weapon.

Yeah I don't really know what that even entails. Do you mean people pretending to be offended in order to silence discussion or something?

It seems to me that, if they're not involved in the discussion (because you're tried and failed to explain what you mean so you are now just not replying to them) it's going to be pretty transparent isn't it?

You have the right of it. It's the fact that you can claim offense even on someone else behalf, and if the subject matter is right then a bandwagon can follow causing a cascade of offense until it is silenced even if no-one was actually offended to start with.

So, a grievance.

I have a friend and long time gaming partner who just moved to my town. Like me, he loves gaming, etc. But my grievance is this; we already have 2 games we're running and barely have time for those. He's been running a module that hasn't been much fun (and he's not that great a GM to begin with) but out of the spirit of the game we've been playing. But he won't play in our established games.

The first is a 10th level d20 Call of Cthulhu/Vampire: the Masquerade mashup set in WWII. We're having a helluva time with it, but he's not interested in it. Fair enough. The second is my campaign, a 13th level/mythic tiers 1-3 game intrigue based game that's been going for over 3 years. He says he can't play a high level character because he can't feel connected to it and MUST always start at low levels when he plays. Yet he expects us to play in his game, and when he finishes this module he wants me to co-GM an evil, city based intrigue oriented game starting at 2nd level. Well, we already have one of those except for the evil and low level, but he won't play in it. And not many people are showing any interest in his, so I do feel bad for him. But it just seems a bit unfair that he won't play in our games but expects us to play in his.

Grievance over. Carry on.

I swear the more of your post I read and knowing you are from the same smallish state really makes me wonder if we either have played together or at least have some of the same players.

Your second paragraph highlights the problem. I can only speak for the USA here, as I've only attended school there, but both myself and many (many) years later my children were both given the same sorts of lessons on being nice, not acting up, not "speaking your mind" and so on.

People manage this every day -- we go to work, the store, the theater and so on without being overly offensive. Just as you wouldn't speak to a bank teller the same way you'd speak to your brothers, I still hold that people are aware of how they are speaking here, they just choose to ignore social niceties because, well, it's the internet and they don't have to look the person in the eye or be held accountable.

<Insert crazy old man back in my day ramblings>

We're asking the mods to strive to a higher standard. It isn't too much to ask the same of the posters, is it?

You would think that however years of retail work have shown me people do not have that filter you believe they posses. Most yes wouldn't come in and act anything short of cordial, but a far larger percentage than you might think will come in and before you even have spoken to them are already in a-hole mode from the start simply because their day has gone awry in some way.

Kirth a quick question on sneak attack. Under synergy it's says that one strike feat even if the normal activating conditions ae not met. So for killing stroke does this allow a rogue to force a CdG save on any sneak attack?

No, because the BAB-based scaling of the feat still applies. (Needing "base attack bonus +X" is a prerequisite, not an "activating condition.") To force a CdG on a sneak attack, you'd need to be at least 21st level (which the system doesn't really support), or else spend a number of rounds studying the opponent before attacking (which duplicates the assassin's death attack, BTW).

That said, a 16th level rogue can be forcing a CdG every other round...

I'll quote Kirth from when I asked a while back.

2 cp.

In my experience Paizo ask that any discussion of moderation decisions be made by email. Not doing so is seen as ignoring a reasonable request, and can result in thread lock or deletion without explanation. My perusal of this issue indicates a lot of "started a thread to seek answers". Maybe I'm wrong, but that's how it reads to me.

I'll miss Ashiel. I found him arrogant, argumentative, and far too sure of himself to be someone I'd call a friend, and a little too fond of assuming his opinions were fact, but he knows this game very well, and always had useful insights, even if I didn't like large chunks of what he said, and I feel that the collective community we have here is diminished in his absence.

So, I'm not going to give an opinion on whether the ban is "justified" or not, it's not my place to give it.

See you around, Ash, take care.

There has been a push here lately to call out the moderators in a public venue as some people believe that sending an email is simply having the mods quality check themselves. Thus they believe that the email is simply a way to make everything look shiny by deleting post and then keeping any dissension private. So more and more posters are taking to creating post or threads calling out the practice and trying to shine a light, so to speak, on a perceived corruption.

The devolving happened because of the assertion that the only reason to dump stats is to be a min-maxer, to which some cited rolling or array's as purer methods of generation free from cookie cutter builds. To which it was being asserted that no matter how you generate stats there will be min-maxing going on. No you might not see stats go negative but the lowest number will go in the least needed stat and the highest in the most or second most.

Can you define combat actions? When is an action considered combat or not combat. If I am breaking down a door is that combat or non-combat. Since casting a spell is under same heading of "Standard Actions" is it a combat action? Or are only certain spells?

The chronicle sheets for Maelstrom Rift and Serpent's Ire had level ranges listed, so I would start with those or reducing to level 1.

As far as actual play experience, I don't understand the trepidation around character death. It's part of the game, and is nothing more than a resource tax - you screwed up or got unlucky (greataxe crits in lvl 1 scenario grumble grumle), go pay 7k gold. In the event of a pregen, it's go pay 1k gold after selling off their gear. I put both chronicles on real characters, fully expecting to pay or retire if needed.

I can assume there is more of a feeling of I have less control over events playing a pregen than a character I know. I would feel more comfortable failing using my own character that I have leveled since the outset and know fairly well than one I just picked and don't know how every piece of the watch works.
