My understanding of that is that they are only counted as fighters for the purpose of determining armor training benefits. No feat access.

Creatures encountering an illusion usually do not receive saving throws to recognize it as illusory until they study it carefully or interact with it in some fashion.

A successful saving throw against an illusion reveals it to be false, but a figment or phantasm remains as a translucent outline.

I heard it in the service, like most things. It's the sleepiness that comes from eating, usually lunch, since you have to go back to work afterwards.

If your team isn't from the Jenkins clan, then they let the enemy come to them so the enemy is moving and swinging once. (Possibly into a readied attack from you, since you are standing between them and the squishies.)

Ugh, I tried to convince my party not to charge in and instead let the ghouls come to us. Sadly, they were all Jenkins clanfolk. :/

I'll let you know how my tengu cleric of Erastil with Growth and Feather subdomains does. Swift action Enlarge Person and a x4 crit tetsubo can be ludicrous.

And you don't just choose cleric for haunts. You choose cleric for shadows and mummies and wizards who memorized blindness/deafness and haunts and all the other crap like that.

I believe the common wisdom is 'kill them before they can inflict those statuses'. For shadows and blindness, potions handle the afflictions. Mummys are rougher with the addition of CL checks to overcome disease/curse/poison. For the most part, tough front-liners and emergency consumables are enough.

How did you get that from 'my players never talk about their stats'? What you should have gotten is that stats are not worth reminiscing over to most players.

Cures are way better than channel because they get a flat bonus that is more likely to overcome the haunts HP total than a bunch of random d6 rolls. Overall, haunts are just s%~*ty mechanics, traps that rogues can't disable because f+!! rogues.

Don't phrase it about how they feel, but how you feel.

"I feel like X when you Y. I wanted to let you know how this looks to me."

You aren't accusing them of anything. Instead you are giving them the chance to correct any misconceptions of yours.

Is there a reason scenarios 7-01, -02, & -03 aren't being offered, or have they just not been entered yet? It seems weird that all of season 7 except is being offered *except* for the first few scenarios. (And my husband and I still haven't played one of them! I know we can always try to get something scheduled in that middle slot, but I can't imagine we're the only ones looking for one of those.)

Often, the first three of the new season show up at PaizoCon, GenCon, or both. That may be why they're not on the list for the season-ending cons.

When are you getting in? People usually arrange a game or two on Thursday for early arrivals. You might try to convince somebody to run some of those then if you'll be there. (I'll be looking to run or play a game or two myself, but haven't yet figured out what it'll be.)

While I don't know the specific reason, I know that those three scenarios are not being offered on the official slots. Best bet is to coordinate with the unofficial games in the afternoon slots and see if someone can run them. (If it's 7-01 you need Alanya, I may be persuaded to run it for you.)

But not to the text of the rulebook, or even to the rules governing PFS play. If you find the moral absolutism of Pathfinder too much of a strain on your moral compass, I have a chess set you can borrow. Feel free to attempt to exterminate those of different color from yourself to your heart's content.

Don't be ridiculous. A game cannot strain my moral compass.

Slight tangent, I've never been clear where this attitude of "Writers have no responsibility or obligations to anyone or anything" comes from. As if it's somehow different from every other profession, where doing a competent job is expected, and rightly so.

Uh...no.

Self-employed people who personally make things for other people to buy have no obligations of any sort in regards to the nature of their product. They just aren't gonna make any money if people don't like what they make. So...they have a huge incentive to provide a quality product, but no obligation.

And writers generally fall somewhat into that category, though they're far from the only ones to do so.

Those employed to write a specific thing (like most freelancers in the RPG industry), not so much, but most novelists without an ongoing contract? No obligations at all, just a strong incentive.

I'm not sure I really see the distinction, at least from a practical perspective.

Being "incentivized" to provide a good work and being "obligated" to end up at the same result, really. You provide something good, that peopke want, or you're out of a job.

Here is a good distinction at work I share my position with the owner's son. If I want to keep my job I am obligated to show up be at my desk and answer the phone among other things. His son has incentive to do so, by that I mean his dad has flat out told my supervisor that he won't relocate or fire his son he can come and go as he pleases deal with it. But if he does manage to show up for at least 3 days a week he gets he truck payment made.

It's really just the difference between 'should' and 'must'. If you think those words are equivalent, you won't understand the distinction.

It kind of evolved organically. He was a drifter that worshipped 'the snows' as something of a nebulous entity and just went with the flow of things. I made up a plausible reason for him to continue with the mission ("They are bending the snows to their will! This will not stand!") and evaluated how he would respond as more information came along.

The argument is 'I have not seen it be a problem, but others have. My lack of experience does not equate to a lack of a problem'.

His conclusion was that he would prefer to not experience the problem. If banning the option provides that, he would support it.

The people who identify a Formian worker will be far more accurate about what its abilities and natures are. The people who identify a dragon are far more likely to 'know' abilities that are merely common myths.

Everyone knows what a dragon is thanks to legends. Only greatly learned people have actually sifted through the legends to know what the truth is.

3.5 FAQ wrote:

I have a bard in my game who has a bit of money to spend. She buys a set of bracers of armor +3 and a suit of +3 leather armor. If the bard wears both at the same time, the armor bonus from the bracers (+3) overrides the armor bonus from the leather armor (+1). Our question is, does the +3 enhancement bonus from the armor still get applied for a total of +6, is it subsumed by the magic of the bracers, or is it just ignored completely? Since the enhancement bonus and armor bonus are different types of bonuses, the bard thinks her total Armor Class bonus should be +6.

The magic leather armor’s +3 enhancement bonus applies to make the armor’s armor bonus bigger (+4 in this case). The example character uses only the larger armor bonus (+4) when wearing both the armor and the bracers.
The overlapping +3 bonus from the bracers is still there, however. (It is just irrelevant most of the time.) If something bypasses the +4 bonus from the magic armor, the bracers might still prove effective. For example, an incorporeal touch attack bypasses the whole armor bonus from the magic armor. Since the bracers provide a force effect, they protect the bard against the incorporeal touch attack. The example character still has a +3 armor bonus against the incorporeal touch attack.

Magic vestment is an enhancement bonus to armor. It adds to the armor bonus, it is not its own separate bonus.
