Yeah, UMD>scroll>permanency is a pretty common trick.

In this case I won't need UMD, but same idea.


What it says on the tin; Caffiene addict 20

Mechanics question:

1)can you cast something from a scroll then make it permanent?
2) same as #1, but the scroll spell level is higher than you can normally cast. However, you do have the requisite caster levels otherwise during the castings.

Reduce Person is too short lasting for permanent storage but Hiding hits upon a great idea. Seeing a noble shrink your army with Mass Reduce Person and hide them in pockets then just start throwing them out cancelling the spell. I love Transformers and Soundwave is my favorite I can see this. Portable hole hidden on your shirt. Instant minions. "Eject Death, Doom and Destructions."

Reduce person would only half them. You may be thinking of shrink item, which may or may not work.

One of the mythic feats probably. I'll get back to you.

Infernal Healing


Nope.


1) Any thoughts on the mechanics of making a construct or animated object large and strong enough to carry a ship,crew,and cargo? Plus it should fly. My plan is to use it as the core of the ship and build the ship around it.

2) Any thoughts on additional features like long range weapons or a sensor array? How would one do these things staying as close to RAW as possible?

Turned into a horse to carry a party member. The dirty jokes never stopped regarding the one character "riding" the other.


Thank you.


Where are the kingdom building rules? If there's a concise document that combines the and Errata that'd be better, but I'll take what I can get.


Carbon copy of Nethis the Ambivalent.


Why can't a commoner take 20?


As close as your nearest bar or milkmaid. Just pick it up and walk away. *milk maid not included*


Depends on the deity

Still seems weird. I guess it's just a higher level of difficulty to undead an outsider.


What it says on the tin; Caffiene addict 20

I could be wrong. Just seems like it's not the norm.

You have *a* place to put the Drow. General housing for several hundred residents, nothing fancy.

...how does Magic Jar work on outsiders, if they don't have souls? Some of these questions have no clear hours.

I dunno. It's all campaign world specific using a bunch of questions that aren't really answered. However, given the relative ease of making undead it's fairly telling that there aren't any outsider undead that spring to mind. They all seem to be made of primes.

I was thinking that maybe Dris might go the undead route as well, possibly.

Was thinking either vampire or shadow/wraith.

I don't think outsiders are viable candidates for undead. Whereas primes have souls outsiders are souls.

Because your soul is in the phylactery.

Can't resurrect without one.

As for a body, you could cast True Res (and bypass the need for a body), but for regular resurrection, you'd need to destroy the lich body so that you'd have a corpse to stick the soul back into.

You have a corpse. It's just animated at present.

Random question of mechanics;

If you're a Lich can you cast resurrection on yourself and return to life?

If you destroy your phylactery, and then your undead body, yes. You'd need a contingency resurrection, or a priest pal you really trusted.

Why would you need to do either of those things? You've got a dead body (you) and someone to cast the spell (again you).

The question would be then what happens with the phalactry? Perhaps you could reuse it should you want to be a Lich again.

Are there stats for little green men from mars?

Martian Man hunter was the first thing to some to my mind.

This.

Mythic Modify Memory (and enough tiers to use it at maximum effectiveness).

Frightening what kind of abuses you can do with it.

Just read it. It is terrifying

But outside the Whitethrone. What people eat in Walsby? If there is a rabbit in a forest then that one rabbit have to eat something as well. I really do not enjoy that authors put something like food is hard to find so +5 DC to survival for hunting and nothing specific.

Think it should be like Mark Watney from The Martian. Greenhouses and tilling. I have funny feel about this.

I can't treat Irrisen as tundra or I risk to lose unfriendly environment feel.

Not much. Monsters. Traded food. Each other. Magic food.

Take your pick. Some plants grow in winter. It's a minimalist ecosystem at best.
Beyond the above answers I'm not really sure what you're asking.


There's a pathfimder tale called "Winter Witch" that gives a lot of background information.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

There's a lot fewer non-monstrous inhabitants. Plus White Throne has some magic enhanced farmland. Also, they import food.

I had 4 removed simultaneously.

Soft foods, pain killers, and stay unconscious as much as possible.


Strip are more tribal and shamanistic. Archaist doesn't seem to be a good fit culturally, but there's no rule against it.

Edit: Theres a pathfinder tale called "Nightglass" which gives good background on strix culture.


You've been watching too much stargate. There may not even be an event horizon.

It's magic. It might just be a doorway in space. Each side seeing the other.

No. You also missed "A gate cannot be opened to another point on the same plane; the spell works only for interplanar travel."

Hmm.. do you think they could be "daisy-chained" like out of Stargate Atlantis?

Barring that -- would a alternate gate spell be researched that is intra-planar only (same to same plane) and be otherwise the same spell?

Closest thing is Teleportation circle, but I rather like the idea of a teleport door.

Handwave it.

Have a magical set of matched helmets/rings/whatever.

Each 'combatant' wears one, puts them in a virtual arena.

Projects a magical 3d display of what's happening so others can view it.

Boom, done.

That's not bad.

Small virtual replicas (akin to Astral Projections, but severely limited) of the casters complete with spell allotments, but without the ability to harm anything other than the other replica.

Oh I meant the two combatants are in what seems like a real arena, the 3d projection is just for the benefit of viewers.

I know what you meant. I just wanted to clean up the process and make it a bit more mechanically closer to something in game.

weasel familiar.


I'm watching Avatar and had a thought. In the show there's this air bender game which is a reasonable facsimile of a combat situation. At the very least I imagine it's good practice for combat. In real life and non-magic situations there's all kinds of analogues to this. Sparing rings, etc.

Anyway, I was considering how one could do a similar thing for the various pathfinder classes. Something that allows them to practice, but minimize friendly fire.

Some random thoughts on the matter:

Druids - I imagine they just go feral tooth and claw on each other healing when necessary.

Martial - Same as it is IRL

Casters - This gets tricky. I imagine they need a special sparing area and/or a well designed game to keep them from accidentally or intentionally killing each other.

What do you think?

Rune guardians: it's a mixed bag.

Enter image: it only works in the city. And only a mile at that.

Yeah. My bloatmage, who has a ring of invis, has non-detection up at all times. It works about 50% of the time vs a full caster.

Mind blank being the obvious auto-succeed upgrade.

Scent. See invisibility, glitter dust, true seeing, a high perception check ...

Eh. Feat Taxes exist. If martials need Combat Expertise, I'm willing to take a limited use craft staff for an extremely useful Staff-Like Wand.

Well, I just wish I could take craft staff earlier. lol


I like the idea of staff-like wand, but absolutely hate having to take craft staff. I get why, but I just dislike staves in general.

Don't forget that casting a spell causes a manifestation that will enable you to pinpoint the location. Just like if someone shoots an arrow or makes an attack.

It is your call if they Auto-identify square with a touch spell or give them the sniper penalty with a ranged spell.

I would LOVE to get a reference for this mechanic... do you know where I find the verbiage in Paizo's canon writings?

Regardless if someone watched them go invisible they can still fire at the square they were in with a 50% miss chance. Of course a smart caster would cast then move, but it's not a requirement.


Having a mobile portal is something that has happened. There's a map that acts as a portal to a demiplane, for example. I've had characters who tied a portal to a shrunken object that when opened is a stone archway and that's the portal. etc.

If it was the actual shield that was the portal then maybe. It's weird, but perhaps.

However, simply "near X Shield" is a bit too amorphous for my liking. Ask you GM, but i'd say it has to be the object and not simply near said object.


You get +20 whenever you're invisible. The skill bonus stacks with this.
