Mill beat bbt to the punch and point out I can make 2 claws and 2 boot blade attacks in a round. The bite would add in regardless so how is 4 attacks > 4 attacks?

Problem is nothing stops a really good item from going to use by the caster as well. If it's really something they want to do they can hit those prereqs as well.

Damn we need a new printing of the CRB anyways I just realized Piazo didn't print the rules that limit jump height based off your character's height. Probably need to errata the jump spell to remove that restriction while we are at it.

Very nice Mr. Holder. Though it raises one question to me, what criteria would be used to determine spousal privilege for couples in states without same-sex marriage.
If they were married in a jurisdiction which allows it. Otherwise one could lose one's rights by moving to the next state. They can also go to a state (or country) that allows marriage for everyone, get married, and return to their home in a state that doesn't allow it, and the Feds will recognize the marriage. It's just like getting married on vacation - it's still valid.

I may have misunderstood then I thought I was seeing that same sex couples would be allowed to claim Spousal Privilege in court even if they weren't married due to their state not having yet enacted same sex marriage laws.

his may have come up but do monks unarmed strikes take the penalty since they count as both natural and manufactured.

Actually I'm saying certain GMs require rage to always be portrayed as foaming at the mouth veins pulsing from the forehead anger. That a character can't have their rage be a focused state of mind dedicated to downing ones foes as efficiently as possible.

So we are back to all barbarians being raging angry people.

Gotta love Martials can't even survive hits without "magic" hp.

I just want my Mighty Whip Dagger back.

And that's how I run it at home.

For what's it's worth I solved the gun touch attack issue by changing defenses. I use armor as DR rules and class defense bonus rules together.

Basically you having a rising defense bonus that scales with level. Armor grants DR instead of AC when you wear armor subtract ACP from class def bonus.

It's like two months of boring then BAM!!!!!!!! Awesome week then back to boring. And yet I'm still drawn in mostly to see if any of my other theories will be answered. ( my first being a long standing belief until a few months ago the Kenpachi Zaraki was in fact the the released state of Yachiro's Zanpakto.)

Dammit I'm gonna miss bleach. Length hasn't be an issue for me but I also am a reading addict. My issue really is the weekly wait for my 4 small hits then back to waiting.

Extraordinary abilities work in an anti-magic field.

Not everything awesome or beyond the norm is magical in nature.

this is the issue right here god don't you know if you can't do it in real life clearly it has to be somehow magical?

For those in the not in my "Tolkien based fantasy" are magic items kept in check, and mages toned downed to appropriate levels.

I would say melee only personally but I envision any melee attack working. I see the kick simply being a kind of follow up like how in movies you see a sword come down cut a guy and the sword weilder kicking his blade loose and the guy stumbling back.

Rennet answerd in FAQ is sometimes used to clear a thread from the list.

Excuse me but... how young is your youngest brother?

17 years old. In other news after talking with my father about my experiences with the game and a discussion about clerics and religion with our pastor who it turns out has a son that plays he is going to let my brother play provided that it doesn't interfere with his school work and he doesn't start acting weird as he put it.

Thank you all for the advice.


Or a sneaky rogue who prefers to poison his foes or slit their throats.

It's the demons and witchcraft thing. They got really heavy handed after a family member who was an avid gamer committed suicide years back. I was grounded in high school for reading Harry Potter.

AFAIU yes your still a rogue. Same goes for Archetypes though you might not qualify for many.

If an observer were to try to make a perception check to tell what race a Scion Aasimar was, he'd register as Human (disregarding non-Human Aasimar atm). It won't hide any wings, claws, or other distinctly non-Human features; what it's hiding is the fact that you're an Outsider. By contrast, looking at a non-Scion Aasimar, they look distinctly non-Human and they'd actually have to make a Disguise check to appear Human. Sure, it could be aided by magic, but the thing being disguised is the Outsider type, not specifically the wings, halo, tail, etc. So our observer will know you're not a "normal" Human, but in a world filled with various magic, he'll probably rationalize it in some manner and think you're using bloodline or rage powers or some kind of magic, whatever. If you want to hide the actual Wings on your back to make people think you don't have Wings, that will take a disguise check and physically removing the disguise will obviously reveal the wings unless magic is involved, in which case you'd need to magically remove the disguise.

This I can agree with 100%. And bbt if this is what your meaning then I'm sorry I missed your point.

Its trying to have your cake and eat it to in a sense. Im Kobold I look like a kobold in a sense i have a kobold tail i can use as a weapon. all because i took a trait that says im more human. Not to mention even a human assiamar with wings and metal skin honestly shouldnt be getting his trait benefit of always seeming human any more. He might still have the blood to take human feats and such but no longer should he be passing as human for free. Even the smaller traits such as a fox tail or scales should cause a problem. There is no reason you cant be a more exotic outsider type assiamar and still take the trait but at that point you shouldn't be also claiming that you have wild exotic features not inline with being a human.

Thanks for the advice everyone after its all said and done ill let you all know how things worked out.

maybe by post 2000 we can have a dev weigh in on this issue. Since now apparently we have a new can of worms opened up.

Actually your getting circumstance penalties. Your DM may not force them but common sense dictates that your not managing it. That the problem we see some people assume that if there isn't a specific listed penalty for something that there can't be one.

You are a restrictive DM, with your own houserules, that curt creativity.

That's fine.

Luckily, none of my DMs require a stepford wives level of lack of uniqueness amongst the defined physical characteristics of PCs.

Bbt this is where we disagree, we have been told to apply common sense to the rules. How can you have scales or furry ears or a tail and yet still pass for human better than standard assaimar x with the bestiary features.

Try cr 6.

If you happen to want slightly more indepth training rules you might want to look at Naruto d20. It's learning system is quite detailed.

As I am 30 and out of the house it isn't a problem for me, however my youngest brother is wanting to get into pathfinder and my father is extremely conservative religiously. Can anyone possibly point me in the right direction of some articles I can show him or anything really along those lines so we can at least get a dialogue going?

P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

It's one attack. If the player moves away, he provokes an AoO and is limited to 1 attack himself. He's not invulnerable or even particularly resilient.

He ignores ONE attack.

He invested 2~4 feats and/or delayed his caster level, BAB and class features by 2 levels just so he could have a good defense. What is the problem with a character having good defenses instead of putting all his resources in DPR for a change?

With a high armor class (which most crane wing users have little problem achieving), it isn't just ONE attack - it is the one attack (sometimes out of 3 or more) that was going to hit.

So not much changed your saying? I mean if attack #2 at a -5 is reliably missing the high AC guy then if he declares his +4 to your opening attack your attack is now only one higher than a reliable miss. So capt AC is still just as hard to hit but now you might get lucky and crit I guess. But on the CW side he might waste his +4 on a bad roll and not get to save it like he would his deflect.

Same man same

So if I take RH Tengu and long nose form how large of a beak do I have now?

Actually I think most of think its common sense racial heritage doesn't grow you a tail you didn't have when you created the character. Very few GMs I would think would outright disallow you sitting down and explaining why you have the tail.

All creatures with a physical body can make an unarmed strike.

This was true in 3.0, 3.5, and is so in Pathfinder.

None need any levels in Monk, or the Improved Unarmed Strike feat.

There is no "Law of the Pathfinder Universe" that makes it impossible for a creature to hit another creature with a part of it's body.

To even suggest otherwise is absurd.

Agree 100% bbt. The real issue is not if they can but if they would. It's a rare occurance that a tiger or wolf would choose to do so instead of attack with natural weapons but if the situation called for it they can headbutt ask any Boston Terrier.

Maybe your just really good at using your massive Orc ass in combat.

So no using 4 claws or 2 swords and 2 claws I take it

Couldn't find a VA FAQ so is it yes 4 claws or no 4 claws?

Dont think to hard about whips and the exact rules text of them. Or the fact that reach weapons dont matter if you have a 0 natural reach. or the fact that since spells dont size a single burning hands spell is like a WMD to anything smurf sized or smaller.

Not sure of RAW or RAI but a small reach weapon would have to grant a medium creature reach. If it lets something smaller gain 5ft extra then how could it not work for the bigger guy.


I agree wanting to join a group with makes sense. If you were running a game in post-cataclysm Krynn and I was playing a honorable fighter trying to keep lawlessness and evil at bay. I'm gonna want to join the Solomanic Knights. And honestly you should straight up tell me when I ask if its a no and why not.

This to me would be like learning that you supposed to negotiate with a Rakshsa for the release of hostages at level 1-3 and coming back the next session ready to bless a crossbow bolt and let the true strike casting wizard shoot it because you found out it was an instant kill ( or at least used to be ) during the down time.

I like Terry Goodkin's writing.

And cover or concealment
