Normally he plays the dashing hero style fighter. Sword/board.
This is a departure from the norm.
Now mind you the group is really more Narrative driven then optimised. (And yes, you CAN do both, I am sure there are highly optimised parties of all tier 1 classes, AM Barbarians, and other crazy s$&* that also are highly immersive roleplayers, telling an amazing story with each action. However, that is not us)
We generally have things like Vanilla Rangers, Straight Fighters, and even when people do go for say a full progression caster there is no need to pull out all the stops.
Anyway, the straight razor was just a visual cue to get the flavor of the character. Now mind you, there is nothing wrong with useing one.
The character can be thought of as the archetypical enforcer, kneebreaker, collector, you know, the dude named "Lefty" that nobody wants a visit from.
So in our upcoming group we are all doing morally grey characters.
A lot of us decided to do characters that grew up on the street having to steal for a living.
The campaign is about 75/25 RP/Combat
And currently we have
Kitsune Mesmerist (Vizier)
Human Sorcerer (Verdant) that will be making liberal use of the vine power to steal/disarm
Dwarf Kineticist (Aether)
half orc Skald.
Anyway when talking about the character my friend would do (He normally plays BSF types) the following was said.
"I just picture the dude that stands in the corner cleaning his nails with a straight razor, he has a bowler on and has a name like "Snitty Two-Toes""
And with that he loved the concept. however needs a bit of help building it.
So are we looking Fighter, maybe Cad?
Rogue? Thug maybe?
Thanks in advance
I think my biggest gripe is that you have a lot of uses a day, but can have them planed in a max of 3 people at say 9th level and never get to have more then one in a person, even you.
I would be fine if as the total limit went up you could have multiple in yourself. I guess it just isnt as cool as it sounds.
So as the title suggests I am building a Mesmerist and I LOVE the class, but the tricks just seem SUPER limited. I can use them like 6 times a day, but only one at a time?
So I can implant one in me to stay alive, and thats it?
This just seems SUPER limiting, am I missing something?

I'm not sure how you think thats at all the same thing?
How does this NOT break the "Don't be an ass" rule we have in place?
I would be...... Lets go with "Upset" if my character died to this.
I would pay for this.
Thanks a lot guys, all the advice is being read and discussed.
While my wife loves Pathfinder, she also does not want a super complex character.
Thus far she has done.... (all PFS)
Tattooed sorc, super high Init, buffer (11th)
Two handed fighter, greatsword... smash.... (3rd)
Ninja, vanish/stab (5th)
The flame oracle may be a great way to go, shame they dont get scorching tho.
As pointed out upthread yes there could have been reasons this happened, maybe the players ran out of the room as soon as warned, maybe X other thing happened. The game is dynamic.
I cant imagine running a game like..
GM: Tells the players the kobolds warn them.
Player: "ok as you know i had expeditious retreat up so i run out to meet them, my speed is 70 and i double"
GM: "you cant, the adventure says the fight is in here"
In our game, right before the waves started some players were going to go out and free the statue person. that would have changed the location.
The point is that "It depends" IS the answer.

Both these changes would be AMAZING, google search seems to work really well.
So my wife is looking to make a new PFS character and wants to try a blaster. With a Ifrit boon it just seemed to fit.
We were looking at a flame oracle or the normal sorcerer. She FAR prefers spont casting to prepared.
I was looking around for a good guide that goes in depth on blasting but as blasting largely sucks, there doesnt seem to be one.
Any help would be awesome.
I agree that its a wonderful site. I use it all the time.
My only question was in regards to a small complaint being characterized as "Pissing on it", Dude said he didn't care for the colors, and that it was a personal thing.
Also yes, the search on d20pfsrd is better and easier to use, at least to me, and it seems at least one other guy.
Having said all that, I generally love your posts, and find your opinions to be good and insightful. In this case I think you jumped a guy for nothing.
How is saying he doesn't like the colors, and the fact that the search function is not the best "pissing on one of the more notable VOLOUNTEER pieces of work from the community."
Neyths is amazing, and a great resource, but having said that the search is awful, and the black background does bug some people.
This would also not fly with me. I bring the books. not a laptop. So you could say you had anything on the flash drive and I couldn't tell if you were right or not.
So I am looking to get into some roll20 games as that seems to be the most common on line.
What do I have to do?.......
I play a lot off line, but never on. how do I set up my sheet? does roll 20 have a dice roller (i assume).
Can i set up roll macros?
is a webcam common/required? or is just a mic good enough?
other things i havent thought of?
I keep all my characters online now at mythweavers if that matters.
So I want to be sure that I have all the retraining rules correct here before my next game.
I have a Bladebound Kensai Magus 10/Unarmed fighter 1 with the crane line.
as my 9th level feat I took Improved Initiative (I wanted Crane Riposte but did not have the +8 BAB)
at 11th I took Critical focus
Now that I DO have +8 BAB can I retrain Improved Initiative into Crane Riposte?
I think Yes as I have all the pre-reqs.
If so, I pay ***Edit*** 550 Gp and 5PP? ***Edit***
And I have to get my next GM to sign off on it?
Is this all right?
