Kingmaker with a parallel kingdom building game/mechanic would be cool at some point.


Got the game for Christmas. Played it once, and love it but am a little put off on how many cards need errata (as well as how unclear I found rules in the rulebook - and a lot I still find unclear at this point even with the FAQ). Making card replacements available makes me way more likely to continue with the game, and I'm the sort that usually buys one of every expansion and promo of a game if I continue playing it!


Doesn't a huge bird picking opponents up and dropping them from the sky interest anybody? ;)


I just was looking into this a bit more. When you grapple someone, you get the grappled condition as well. And the grappled condition makes it so you can't move. Except grab lets you grapple without also getting the grappled condition... but at -20 to the CMB check. :(

What are some classes (up to 4 levels worth), feats, traits, magic items, or anything else that can boost my CMB for grappling?

I've only really thought of Improved Grapple and eventually Greater Grapple. :(


The GM is worried about me taking up too many actions in a round. I may even go the domain route instead of having a companion. But I'm liking that "Crazy Bird Man" build, for that kind of thing.

Since I'm wanting to focus on being wild shaped in combat, I came across Planar Wild Shape since originally posting, and it's looking pretty good to me.


So, I've purposefully made some sub-optimal choices for a character I want to play, but I'd like some advice on how to optimally build within these confines.

The character will be a level 7 Elf Eagle Shaman, or 6 levels of Eagle Shaman and splash a level of something (probably monk). The character's main shtick would be wildshape into a Young Roc (see errata for Eagle Shaman), grappling and then dropping enemies from the sky. The majority of encounters will be outdoors (Kingmaker campaign), but in tight spots would rely on summoning one of the Eagle options (again, see errata).

Thanks!


I think I'm being lured away from the initial character concept to Master of Many Styles.


I am not looking to be optimal, at all. But if I can make some optimal choices along the way to the character concept, all the better.


Thank you!


I haven't really played a monk before, so I was wondering if there were any good guides out there. Specifically:

1) Basics of how they work (up-to-date, so it includes the major clarification that happened a while ago)

2) Optimization

3) Multi-classing (things to keep in mind/specific classes and archetypes that go well with them)

Or short of that, feel free to give your own advice here. Specifically, the character I'm looking at would be a Weapon Adept (Quarterstaff). No point in suggesting other archetypes (unless they also would work in addition to Weapon Adept) or pointing out how sub-optimal the archetype and weapon choice is.

Thanks!


So other than through Comixology, there are no plans for digital versions of the comics, I take it.


Will this be available in pdf? A number of years ago I switched from individual comics to TPBs, but now I find myself switching from TPBs to digital...

I'd say don't treat women any different than men treat men, and for men not to treat each other like crap.

Treat everyone equally... and humanely. No need to single out players by sex or sexual preference or religious beliefs or race or anything. Just don't be a dick to the person sitting next to you, period.


I'm not sure if this is the best old thread to post this in, but I'm trying to figure out my alignment. I'm definitely good (just go with it) but I'm not sure about the other axis. I follow laws the majority of the time, even waiting for the light to change to cross the street with no cars in sight. However, I think I'm just not morally opposed to most of the laws where I live (Canada). I definitely am the sort to fight for what I believe in, even if the law wasn't on my side. Ultimately, I think I'm either Chaotic Good because of that, or Neutral Good because I try and respect the law whenever possible.

TL;DR: Does breaking the law when you feel it's morally justified, but following it whenever otherwise possible make you Neutral or Chaotic?

Anybody remember Journeyman on NBC?

It was a variant on Quantum Leap that included Moon Bloodgood. It started to pick up steam and get interesting towards the end of the season, and then the stupid writers' guild strike put the kibosh on it.

I do, I really liked it.


It wasn't done in seasons, and wasn't cancelled (they actually wanted more episodes), but...

The Prisoner

(not the 2009 one)

Thanks guys! I'll look into it. But I'd rather have them here at Paizo in pdf format, like the rest of my Pathfinder. :)


I don't really buy actual comic books anymore. But I do buy pdfs... :)


277. Even the smartest people in the town can't count to one hundred.


I have my screen resolution set to "everything ridiculously tiny", and I was like "how/why is Amazing Spider-Man #50 the most popular item for sale right now?"

I've got my Shieldmate! Good luck to all those still looking!

Goblin Squad Member

I was hoping to entice some friends into pledging, but that hasn't happened.

I am getting all daily deals, so would be happy to have someone who needs them as a Shieldmate.


I haven't played this version. i'm sure it's a quality product, coming from FFG.

Speaking of quality products, I really enjoyed the d20 version and had a blast with multiple home campaigns and with The Living Force organized play.

Thanks Lisa and anyone else responsible for that game who could be reading this!

^_^

"Wizards made their announcement in January, and released the fire playtest materials in May."

I didn't know that so many people threw it in the fire! ;)

1) Get a quick overview
2) Play, trusting it's all on the up and up
3) Audit/dissect later if time allows.

That would be what I would do back in the LG days.

42 AC for an 11th level character is on the straightforward side, isn't it?

Full Plate +3 (12)
Heavy Shield +3 (5)
Dex Bonus +4 (fighter)
RoP +3
Amulet of NA +3
DR Ioun Stone +1
Shield Focus +1
Improved Shield Focus +1
Combat Expertese +3
Fighting Defensively +2
Dodge +1

That's AC 46...

I would say straightforward would be including all they types of bonuses to show that it all stacks up, and not having any abbreviations.


To answer the OP, who I'm sure is still looking for posts seven years later, I love SW d20! I don't know why it has such a bad rap.


This thread almost makes me want to go from being a RAW guy to a RAI guy.


It should help. It's "broken", but if the DM, the player, and other players have no problem with it, go for it.


On a tangent, how can a disclaimer override reality?

For example, when someone clearly provides legal advice, how does including "this is not legal advice" make it not legal advice?


5-10-5 adds nothing to the game, only takes away.


Neat idea!

Goblin Squad Member

So... where do these show, and where do they not show?


Flavor and fun first!

Goblin Squad Member

Test.

Is the email from Paizo or Goblinworks? Either way, I'm not seeing it... what date was it sent?


I love all the dips for Monks, when apparently Monks suck.


This is awesome. I hope you send print copies to retailers, to hand out along with the Box.


Thank you.


...please cancel all my subscriptions. I hope to be able to re-subscribe in the future.

Thank you.


2. No more than 2.

The best choice?

Blunt Durable Arrows, made of different special materials to bypass DR.

You can draw them as a free action, as they are ammunition.

Munchkin-tastic! ^_^


Thanks guys. I do not forsee a worse event occuring in my life.

And not that it matters in the grand scheme of things, just more insult to injury, she was the GM. So I don't have a play group anymore.

I swear when I was out there it was called a J-Turn. :p

The same as we call a roundabout....a roundabout and American Sat Nav calls it a Circle Turn. Haha!

Yea, I'm English myself so always spell Armour in this fashion, where as you guys spell it Armor etc. English English and English American are two fairly different things. XD

But yea, guess I'll be making a trip to his house tomorrow to go through things with him.

I think someone was pulling your leg. Did they tell you that the things you wear on your feet in winter are called trunks?

I think the good folks at Paizo got it figured out. It seems to me, they don't see us customers as cows that they can continually milk. Instead, they keep us fed with delicious non GMO grains, corn, and frequent of exotic feed. But they never feed us cow, you never have to worry about developing mad cow disease.

I would love to see moderately priced box sets of modules + minis with lots of goodies. Maybe a Council of Wyrms, type of thing for Pathfinder... I wonder if someone has converted that before.

Mooooo!

I think they would milk us, in a good way, if they had the resources.

A Kickstarter for a leather cover addition could probably do really well, but that would tie up time from personnel that they would feel are better off being applied to something else.

They go for the best bang for their buck.

They want to make the most money possible making the most fans/customers happy.

So a leather bound book would make some people happy and make some money, whereas they'd rather have people working on something that would make more money and make more people happy.

That's the way I see things from my armchair. ;)


I'm guessing it's the out-of-story reason that a high-level sorcerer NPC can't be as diverse and interesting mechanically as a high-level wizard NPC.

A sorcerer blasting out the same level 9 spell every round would probably be either boring or annoying.


Once per day, as an immediate action, you may make a standard action. If you do, after the action resolves, you become dazed until after your next turn or combat ends, whichever happens first.

I'd go with something closer to that. Pretty much the same thing, I figure.
