A witch's familiar retains its spell knowledge for 24 hours; I think that's the only Pathfinder rule on the subject.

Intelligent items that'll cast their own spells for him?

Oh, and what about a Simulacrum of the NPC, which is made to do some of his work (and because of that is fitter, looks better and maybe is nicer too.)

Levitate an open Bag of Holding, upside-down. Let it drop on anyone getting too close.

Not so fast, my fine feathered friend.
(Those are feathers, right?)

is there a way to trap a -already dead- soul?

Depends. For mindless undead, the soul has already gone to Pharasma. But sentient ones usually have their soul still with them, and so should (per the fluff) qualify as "recently dead" where trapping souls is concerned.

The desired effect is to place it into a zombie/corpses body.

Man, that would be embarrassing for any would-be hero (or villain)!

Take the Keen Scent and Blind Fighting feats and carry around an Eversmoking Bottle

This deserves bonus points for coolness.

You should certainly let the character work towards such an end - it's a good thing when PCs have goals and motivations (as long as these don't interfere with the adventure at hand).
If the final transformation actually creates a character that's too powerful compared to the other PCs, then it's time for the newly formed Demon to become an NPC and for the player to roll up a new character. But until then, just say yes.

GMs who say "Yes, but..." create more fun than those who just say "No."

Considering you can already get cover from your mount by using the Ride skill, I don't think the feat would work.

And swarms. And innocent bystanders.

An army? With all those unshaven faces? I think not.

Of course, you can no longer open a door: the handle cannot detect you...

how can you find a lich's phylactery?
  • Kill Lich.
  • Find Lich while it's reconstituting.
  • Kill Lich again.
  • Destroy anything box-like that has a magical aura nearby.

wanted to know if there are any feats that let me change super-natural abilities(SU) and extraordinary abilities(EX) from lethal to non-lethal

Not that I'm aware of.

would ability damage from SU, or EX abilities count as breaking the vow since it just says spells and weapons?

Depends on whether the PC considers the vow by its literal definition (in that case: no, it wouldn't count as breaking the vow) or by its intent (in which case: it would totally be breaking the vow).

Method: Redirect any hatred of your imp to yourself. Make the party sympathize with your pet instead.

Good idea!

Disguise kit. Make the critter look like a Mephit or a Homunculus. It's a mundane disguise, so all divinations will be thwarted.

There's no logic behind what gets categorised as Vermin.


  • The first save is made right away, when the victim comes in contact with the infestation. If that save is made, nothing at all happens. Fail, and you are now infested (though nothing yet happens).
  • After 4d6 hours, and every hour thereafter, a save has to be rolled against that same DC to avoid the Constitution damage.
  • In this particular case, succeeding on a save merely avoids the damage. Only killing or removing the parasites will end the Infestation.

according to the Animal Archive (top of page 18) a Familiar can give up it's starting feat (EX: Weapon Finesse)and take something different

Provided they're: "Feats that are meant for familiars". Which seems to be the case for the OP.

It works for me, but does start up in "editing mode".

3. Some nosey neighbours just don't know when to quit! Even from beyond the grave you're still being watched.

D20PFSRD only got into "trouble" when they started selling stuff on the website. So while I'm not a lawyer, you should be safe as long as you:

  • Attribute properly
  • Put the correct license on everything
  • Make no money from this

7) What kind of an action is it to switch from using a Scorpion Whip as a Scorpion Whip, to using it as a regular Whip.

All of which seems to boil down to: is a Scorpion Whip a Whip?

Maybe suggest (or even buy for him) a published adventure?

No, that would be the "Can You Touch Yourself?"-thread. Here, we are being entertained.

Someone pass the popcorn, please?

A Beastmorph Alchemists loses his appearance every time he takes his mutagen - work towards the Master Chymist PrC and you'd even lose your whole personality while using the chemicals you need to save your people.

It's not particularly "otherworldly" though.

I think it's Disguise.

Just reanimate only Evil creatures, and call it "preserving the balance".

And try not to invade Russia.

It's probably not the RAW that's prohibiting this, but common sense. After all: how is the Eidolon going to attack with the very hooves it's standing on?

464. Bedtime Stories
This book is an exceedingly dull treatise on the behaviour of hibernating Arctic snakes, but just to make sure: every third page has a Sepia Snake Sigil cast on it.

We were all solidly good so actual torture was out.
I put a mark on him and told him next time he lied to me he would burn his body and soul and would be my toy for 10 years before burning out.

I am confused...

I think Blood Money is barred too. So maybe a Dirge Bard? Same necromancy flavour, less evil.

Also, the Mutation Warrior does something similar, albeit with mutagens rather than evolutions.

For: it launches projectiles, which is pretty much what (cross-)bows and slings do too.

I doubt it's a weapon - it doesn't do any damage, doesn't have any range increments (of its own) nor a critical range.

Kilroy was here.

any wacky combo that lets you do something much better than anything like this is generally incorrect.

Hear hear.

It should grant Smite Chaos to the allies. You can interpret the RAW almost any way you wish, but that's the only "sensible" outcome in my opinion.

As a rule of thumb, full casters like Wizards should not take levels in any other class (though it really only hobbles you at higher levels).
Assuming mr. Poe is not meant to be played sitting at home, hunched over a writing desk... what do you want the character to be able to do?

P.s. Just made account and first post. :D

Welcome aboard!

A Dirge Bard who UMDs a wand to create a bunch of permanent Zombies and Skeletons should fit the bill already - why create a whole new archetype?

The RAW do no prohibit this, though it seems an oversight.

Creepy is probably more interesting than downright Evil. The Sotto Voce and Haunted Fey Aspect spells might both be mere cantrips for instance, but can be quite flavourful.

The rules are silent on the matter, but this board's consensus seems to be that everything "mind related" would go with the life-force, while "body related" feats stay with the body. So if you load up your Familiar with feats that make its mind more powerful while making your Animal Companion a more potent body... you should end up with a amalgamated creature loaded with feats.

An interesting idea, I must admit.

Isn't the host effectively dead already?

Did anyone see my win? I'm sure I left it here somewhere...

Nonono, we mustn't make this a cake-walk for the Succubus. Make her work for those levels she wants to drain. We want to see some serious grappling going on!

they technically don't exist

And there's your problem. You can't apply the rules to something that violates the rules, without first creating new rules.

now assuming i'm a 10th level with with a full animal companion, (such as through animal ally) who gives all of his remaining feats to his familiar, and has an animal companion with all of its feats, how would this work out?

How would what work out, exactly?

i'm not sure where feats come into play.

Feats come "into play" whenever any creature gets them - be it a Witch, their Familiar or an Animal Companion.

An Intelligent Magical Item that creates a Simulacrum that creates an Intelligent Magical Item that creates a Simulacrum that creates an Intelligent Magical Item that creates a Simulacrum that creates...

Money's the issue though. Where's the magic item that creates magic items going to get the required components?

This system seems made to be automated - manually it would take too long to "populate" hexes the party might never visit.

Whatever you do, do it quick. You want that thing out of you while it's still inside an egg...
