Is it possible? Golarion is cyclical, and it seems to be heading for another golden age of magic and wonder. People are finding more and more ancient artifacts and lost texts, and gleaning eldritch knowledge from them. Is it possible that someday soon a wizard will unlock the secrets of the runes once again, resurrect Lissala, and recreate the power of the runelords?
I want to make a spell-less variant of the Inquisitor without causing myself too much of a headache, but I need so help.
My first idea is to strip the spells and give them the Black Powder Inquisition at first level, the Spellbreaker abilities, and the Witch's Bane Judgement from the Witch Hunter in addition to the standard Inquisitor's abilities.
Thoughts? Is it an equivalent exchange?
The Original Rule, for reference.
In a single round of combat, you can perform:
A) 1 Standard Action and 1 Move Action,
B) 2 Move Actions, or
C) 1 Full-round Action.
At levels 6-10, in a single round, you can perform:
At levels 11-15, in a single round, you can perform:
At levels 16-20, in a single round, you can perform:
Monsters' actions per round would be based off CR and follow the tier structure.
I'm making some changes to the Ranger for one of my players. He doesn't want to cast spells , but he wants both the hunter's tricks from the Skirmisher archetypes and traps from the Trapper archetype. I think I can accommodate this by reducing the BAB down to that of a Rogue's, but I feel doing this will make the Ranger too weak. Suggestions on balancing?
My campaign is about to begin a long built up arc known as the "Dwarven Olympics" and I need games for my players to compete in. I don't want simple skill checks and combat, so I'm turning to the forums for help. Humor is much appreciated, this is meant to be slightly silly, but not over the top. Thanks.
I'd like to introduce a new concept for my spellcasters, and I wanted to get some opinions on it.
I want specialist, and those who have the Spell Focus (school) feat, to have the ability to select any spell from their chosen school, regardless of class.
So, a conjurer could learn any conjuration spell, even those unavailable to wizards. This would also mean a cleric with Spell Focus (necromancy) could cast necromancy spells unavailable to his class.
I have, of late, been forced to play 4e by my friends. I do not like it... at all. Thank you.
One thing that I partially believe has some merit within 4e is the second wind system. I would like to include a much watered down version into my campaign.
What would be a good way to incorporate it into Pathfinder?
And what are your thoughts on the mechanic itself?
I'm introducing a variant rule into my campaign which may drastically alter combat, and I wanted some opinions on how to best accomplish it.
My goal was to make combat more epic and dangerous. My idea is, as characters (both PCs and NPCs) advance in character levels, their proficiency with weapons increases, allowing them to do more damage and inflict critical hits with greater ease. Such as:
Longsword (Medium Size)
Likewise, proficiency with armor would increase the ability to resist damage and even absorb successful blows. Such as:
I would like to couple this with a greater limit on weapon proficiencies at 1st level and perhaps the DR for AC rule from Ultimate Combat of 3.5 Unearthed Arcana, which would obviously change the armor advancement rates and bonuses.
What are your thoughts? Would this destroy a game?
You don't need to. Spell Points just replace spell slots. If you want to convert classes not listed just total up the point from the spell slots at that level.
Keep in kind that prepared casters need to spend points to memorize spells instead of slots, they still have to 'pre-buy' the spell they want to cast during the day.
These are two classes I threw together. Tell me what you think.

Okay, I'm a little concerned. My party is very happy with the variety of "alternative" core classes (Hexblade, Warlock, etc.) and unlimited number of prestige classes available to them because I own nearly every WoftC 3.5 book published. The problem is I am very happy with the new rules found in Pathfinder RPG. My question is has anyone developed a standard system of conversion for core and prestige classes? I know there have been several case by case examples, but I'm curious if anyone has cracked the system and would be willing to help me out. Please...
-Great Idea: If no one has any solid system of conversion, maybe Paizo could come up with a guideline? Maybe a downloadable? Heck, I bet overwhelmed GMs like myself would even pay for such a system.
