I like a gnome reincarnated druid with the weather domain. Flying around as an air elemental dropping lightning bolts.


I'm pretty sure fireballs stop at solid barriers, including but not limited to the earth. It's a ball of fire, not an explosion. You wouldn't need to earth glide farther away than under the ground. Retracting your arm should be sufficient.

Though Imbicatus' points are all valid and would need to be overcome for this to work.


Though I'm sure everyone is super smart, this isn't an imaginary thing.

There's a Solar bike path in the Netherlands. True, it's not a roadway, but more of a proof of concept. This is definitely a real thing.

I've got mine tonight and I'm still unsure of the dress code.


I suspect it's because one is real and one is imaginary. They are thus incomparable.

In fantasy games this incompatibility seems like it would continue.

That's just my pseudo-psychological theory anyway.

In a world where antigrav has been perfected, I have no issue with the soccer ball droid with the exception that it looks kinda stupid. My assumption is that there's gyro's and magnets and such inside the soccerball.

I wonder if they'll revamp the base class or just add an archetype (or two) that functions appropriately.

You are correct. By free I meant a non-action. Semantics.
Free action and non-action are separate and distinct game terms. Free actions can only be done on your turn and can be limited by GM fiat. Non-action has no limit, because it take no action at all to do.

Yes. I know. I accidentally used a game term. I meant it initially as in what it means in the English language, now what it means in pathfinder language.

As stated. You are still correct. I made an err.

If memory serves you get to roll all knowledge checks (limited by what's appropriate for sake of speed) one time when you encounter a new situation. All rolls are free actions. This represents what the character already knows. Not any kind of time consuming analysis or research.

Effectively its one of every knowledge check per encounter. Though DM is smart to tell the player which one(s) to roll.

He has a point. Well, as much of a point as anyone talking about theoretical physics in a fantasy/sci-fi setting with quasi-religion/magic has.

Edit: Plus he called them/some of you nerfherders, which is awesome.

Oh my response would be to match crazy with crazy.

So clearly I would dress up as a CN elf sorceress/wizard.

I would then proceed to seduce the game master.

Actually, this has some level of merit when dealing with crazy people.


Damon Griffin wrote:

Response #1: It would require a lot more than waking up in a warehouse full of fantasy props to convince any rational person that magic is suddenly real, so there'd be no point to dressing up as a wizard or cleric; there's no expectation you'd be able to exploit their class strengths. Ditto the racial "suits"; no reason to believe that giving myself pointed ears would suddenly grant low-light vision or whatever. (On the other hand, that would be a simple enough experiment, so see Response #2 below.)

I would suspect I'd been dropped into an RPG-themed version of "Saw" by some lunatic, ignore the racial suits and adopt light armor and a couple of weapons I might reasonably expect to use untrained: staff and a light sword, probably. This is not because I consider myself to be a competent Fighter; I don't. It's because the Fighter's skill set is the easiest of the four for a mundane to fake and the easiest of the four to pick up quickly.

Response #2: Assuming that from observing others it becomes apparent that adopting a racial suit or class-appropriate gear does somehow grant the abilities linked to that race/class combination, I would still stay away from Wizard, because there are too many unknown variables in terms of spells available, etc. I'd probably stick with Fighter, but on the assumption that whatever is granting racial and class abilities will now make me compenent with whatever gear I choose, I'd get slightly heavier armor and weapons, and add a bow. I presumably don't know what game system/edition is being simulated here, but I would probably add a racial suit that has the best chance of increasing my STR and CON: dwarf or half-orc.

Basically this. Stick with something simple. Ranged weapons as primary with a melee backup. Dont be a hero and don't go first. Plus I'd assume there is no money or happy ending if you "win." I'd play along while looking for an actual exit.

Edit: Now if the "racial gear" was actually something to give me an edge such as "darkvision" being a pair of night vision goggles, then I'd do that.

Getting to space in a world of magic is easy.

Any shmuck with boots of levitate and an amulet of adaptation and a lot of free time can get to space. Re-entry might be more difficult though. There are obviously better ways to get to space, but when one can tell physics to sit down and shut up it's much easier than in our physics-heavy reality.

At that point I use my leverage to get your fingers chopped off by your own crossguard. The thing is crossguards weren't monofilament daggers that could effortless go through the hands gripping the hilt, they were solid round pieces simply designed to stop a blade.

That doesn't make any sense. The fingers are in a fixed position relative to the crossguard no matter how you try to turn it.

But what about your forearms if you spin it really fast, like Jedi's do.

I can do that with a claymore without hitting myself, and I'm a clutz.

Are you saying you can stand there all alone and do this? Or are you saying you do this when an enemy is pressuring you with trying to chop your head off? Because those situations are drastically different.

I'm going to go on a limb and say that he's never actually been in battle with a broadsword as his main weapon. Also, he's probably not a force wielding jedi with a plasma sword. The force part being a major game changer.

Edit: minor correction.


Wouldn't Dr Strange basically be a Wiz / Sorcerer?

You're not inside a jar. You're inside a hedged prison. the binding spells are there to confine an entity, not enable it to interact with the outside world. Spells, nor speech, can cross it. Nor can it be "opened" unless broken first.

There are different ways you can use this spell. One of them is a hedge prison and another is minimus containment. You might want to reread the spell description. Linked above by VRMH.

Minimus Containment: The subject is shrunk to a height of 1 inch or less and held within some gem, jar, or similar object. The binding is permanent. The subject does not need to breathe, eat, or drink while contained, nor does it age. Reduce the save DC by 4.

WITHIN A GEM/JAR/OBJECT. Which means that you have no line of effect to anything outside it.

I can read. Also I said a couple of times that you'd need to use things without line of effect. Careful with the caps lock. Wouldn't want to break the community guidelines.

Edit: interacting with the outside world would require some creativity. As stated.

Edit2: Spell intent and spells as written are not the same thing. Clearly this is an attempt to bypass intent and work with as written.

Oddly enough, undoing death seems to require fewer (and lower-level) resources than preventing it. But as for immortality: my favourite scheme remains Binding: Minimus Containment. Stack up on items to cast Magic Jar from, and you can even remain part of society.

This could be done on a level 1 Commoner if need be, provided someone forks over the dough...

The purpose of a Binding is to keep you confined The inside of a Minimus is pratically it's own little demi-plane. I would not allow someone to Magic Jar from the inside of it.

Sounds like a house rule to me. There's nothing anywhere in the rules that says it creates a demi-plane, anything similar to one, or that the captive is even unable to take actions from within his/her confinement (though I do believe it would break line of effect, and possibly line of sight*, to the outside world).

* Depending on which object you are held in.

Basically you're 1 inch tall and inside a jar. I can see a lot of ways one could continue to interact with the world. SLA's not being least among them. Just nothing that requires line of effect.

SOrcerer casts unseen servant to carry him around. Summons creatures, telekinesis, etc. Just cant use anything that requires LOE or material components.

Edit: Do you think you could open the jar and drop things inside?

I recommend FAQ.

You'd still have to roll to hit each target. Though for the sake of gameplay I'd roll once and apply that to all targets.

I imagine dozens of rays flyng out from you simultaneously. Then the fun begins.

Answer: I have standards.

I actually said that once, in front of about 5 female family members, and got a Death Glare from the deepest fires of the Abyss.

Too bad that unlike me, my family does not consider my dog a suitable substitute for offspring. They're rather practical folks, and in their estimation, a bichon serves no practical purpose - can't hunt, can't guard, can't herd.
I like to remind them that she does exactly what her breed was developed to do - keep me company and act as a great bedwarmer.
She's still not welcome at family gatherings, though.

Some folks just don't comprehend that constant human companionship is not necessary for everyone.

"he more I'm around people the more I like my dog. ~ Mark Twain (paraphrased)


On a related note isnt there a spell that creates an area of magic where you're enhanced and others are harmed? I cant think of the name.

Perhaps a carefully worded wish would accomplish the "I can cast and you can't" goal of the demiplane creator.


Claxon wrote:

Seems like something that should be possible, but I think it would also be too powerful. Every (player) wizard would decide to become a lich and would just decide to make a timeless demiplane where only they could cast magic to perform their magical research. Until they leave after completing their research to enslave the multiverse.

Trying to defeat a wizard in a place where his magic works and others doesn't is going to go very poorly.

If they get too uppity I'm sure a deity would step in with a quick dispel.


wizard cleric is the ultimate utility character.

If you want a trapsmith there's a 2nd level spell that temporarily gives you trapfinding if you want that. Or just take one level of rogue. Then just max out Perception and disable device.

Anyway, Hama, life is too short! Don't be like Doodlebug! Go get a woman!

(I wonder if UPS will let me transfer out to the Bay Area...)

I have the same problem. I'm completely oblivious when I'm being hit on. One basically just has to say it to my face.

That being said it's fortunate that I'm a gay dude. When it comes to sex we're not known for subtly.

Funny thing is I've been happily and monogamously married for almost ten years. As you might imagine he's the direct type also.

Basically i'm "safe" now in that people can tell me things without worrying that I'll try to get into their pants or let them in mine. Anyhow, with this safety I've had more than one person tell me that they used to hit on me hard and I never seemed interested. Truth be told once upon a time I totally would have slept with them, but I didn't realize they were hitting on me.

Oblivious. Party of 1.

The plane cannot be dispelled, but a creature on the plane can destroy it by using limited wish, mage's disjunction, miracle, or wish and making a successful dispel check.
Spell Sunder is not a listed method, so it does not seem you can. Of course, your DM could rule otherwise, but RAW you can't.

Add to that any greater demiplane creator who does not use the subjective magic trait wherein making himself the only one who can cast the three spells that can dispel his demiplane deserves what he gets.

That's actually not a trait on demiplanes. You can't do that. The closest you can get is a complete dead magic zone.

You're right. Oops. My bad. Well, you'll have to get creative with the timeless trait then.
