I hope for a wizard prestige class related to technology. Something like a warp mage or a technomancer.

I suppose it's obvious I still have a decade of lore to go through given that I understand barely a fourth of what you just wrote. But regardless, I still stand by my original request/complaint: Ditch the kitchen sink approach for Starfinder, or at least don't indulge in the subgenres of sci-fi until much later in the new game's life cycle.

While I do understand where you're coming from, I've come to realize that a big part of the success of Pathfinder stemmed from the kitchen sink approach at launch.

Think about it, when Starfinder comes out, we'll only have one AP and no modules to flesh out the setting. Now consider that if you sit ten gamers at a table to play a sci-fi game, chances are that you'll get at least five different ideas of what a sci-fi game is. Maybe a lot of gaming groups won't be interested in the flavor of sci-fi that the first AP will offer.

But if the setting laid out in the core book presents the kitchen sink approach, the GMs will be more likely to find the sort of environment their players prefer, and the adventure seeds (I'm assuming these will look like the ones in the Inner Sea World Guide) will give them a taste of what this game can bring to their table. Which will lead to them following the line, and ensuring its continuing success.

In my case, I was a big fan of Spelljammer. Still have a lot of the books. But my gaming group wants something closer to Stargate, except for someone who wants basically a Shadowrun-like game. At six months per AP, it'd take at least a year and a half to cover all three preferences. And this is just my group.

Hopefully you'll find your preferred type of sci-fi covered in the core book. Hopefully everyone will.

I've been thinking about it, and I'd like race-specific classes and prestige classes. Things only certain races have developed.

Magic being nerfed.

I want magic to still be able to do things beyond what can be achieved without it.

Liberty's Edge

For magic to advance in order to keep in ahead of what technology can achieve.

I mean, magic is magical because it goes beyond what can be achieved without it, it basically grabs the laws of physics, squeezes them in a tutu, and makes them dance at the casters' whims. So in a setting where technology makes the impossible possible, magic would need to be really scaled up in order to continue being "beyond the realm of possibility".

So, a souped-up magical system, please!

It makes sense to require an attack roll. At 15 feet, in a combat situation, missing is a real possibility.

Liberty's Edge

"He", I suppose. Because in my native language, the rule is to use the male pronoun for individuals unless the contrary is known, and for groups unless the clear majority is female (we also have male and female third person plural pronouns). As far as I know, there is no such rule in English, or one to the contrary, so in the absence of a rule I default to habit.

Liberty's Edge

I watched the trailer still somewhat hopeful. When it finished and I realized I hadn't even smiled once... not looking forward to this.

What basically hit me was that the trailer started out sounding like the movie is a sequel, then it becomes obvious that it's a remake. But it was... flat. Meh-ish is the best thing I can say about it.

Sad.

Not as bad as finding the guy dead, but it kind of feels like someone died. One of my gaming friends who has hosted and GM'd for the group for more than 20 years was just convicted of a very repugnant crime and is going to prison.

This week instead of a game session our group are going to his house to re-home his extensive collection of books, miniatures, and props. I'm both disturbed by the news and sad. It's like losing a family member.

I've spent at least 6 hours a week at his house for all these years. It just shows that you can spend a lot of time with someone and not know them at all.

That's terrible, was there any chance he was innocent? Maybe he could appeal or something?

Does he have family, kids of his own? I can't imagine what it'll be like for him. It's very nice of your group to keep his things safe until he gets out.

Liberty's Edge

Somebody drowned.

Yeah, my story about the guy who'd take breaks from playing to go jack off and come back a couple of minutes later (without washing his hands)... suddenly insignificant.

I'm sorry for your loss.

BUT THE MINI'S! Are the mini's okay?

Good Ral Partha metal minis. Had to be washed and repainted, but the minis themselves got off easy.

Everything made of paper, however, was... too far gone.

Our friend had to be taken to the hospital but made a full recovery. We continued gaming for several more years, before life sent each one in a different direction.

Out-of-game. Long time ago, with my second gaming group, playing AD&D on a sunny Sunday afternoon shortly before the turn of the century. The table was set on the patio, lovingly painted pewter minis next to our, admittedly, well-thumbed character sheets.

A tad graphic.:
One of the players barfed. No. That doesn't paint the correct picture. One of the players's stomach exploded upwards and out his mouth and nose, turning him into a brief but violently gushing geyser of what could only be described as an overcooked soup made with cow tripe and rotten fish heads, complete with red-brown spongy chunks.
Much like a fireman's hose, the player's mouth showered the entire table, and the two players sitting across from him-a good five feet away-for what seemed like an eternity but was probably closer to a good thirty seconds. Time seemed to slow down to a crawl. Those of us not directly involved could only stare in horror. From the blower-of-chunks, whose eyes were shut closed in sudden and visually excruciating pain, to the abject horror on the faces of those receiving said vile effluvium.
When it finally came to an end, our friend tried to utter an apology, but slid from his chair and hit his nose on the table, hard, adding a sudden, but blessedly small, spray of bright red blood to the unholy mess that the table had become. He then proceeded on his way to the floor, where he lay in a tearful sobbing heap.
Bad prawns. He'd had bad prawns the night before.

The Racist Mute can be hilarious, and still be an asset to the party.

Case in point: I misread the adventure summary for a game and showed up with a character with a seething, unquenchable hate for all that Andoran stood for, only to find out that we would actually be playing .as. Andoran undercover agents in Qadira.

So instead of changing the character, I spoke to the DM and we agreed my character didn't speak Common, and had (also) completely misunderstood what the mission was about.

Since the rest of the party was playing as deep-cover spies and saboteaurs, my character took them at face value and hacked and slashed what he considered impious Andoran sons-of-pigs, and communicated with the rest of the party in hilariously misunderstood hand signs and gobbledygook.

There is no wrong concept. There are poor executions.

Liberty's Edge

The update was posted right after I posted, but... I no longer have any hopes of seeing the episode I backed.

Liberty's Edge

Blatant necroing, but I was wondering if anyone here knew anything about just what the heck happened.

The Facebook page has been abandoned for months, the website is pretty much empty, there's no word from the creators.

Liberty's Edge

43. Do not drink the house's milk.

Liberty's Edge

This is painful, but I don't really have a choice. Please cancel both my Pathfinder Adventure Path and Pathfinder Tales subscriptions.

I hope to be able to resume them in the future.

Thank you.

Hello again!

I didn't get the confirmation email, but that wasn't that important anyway. Still, I checked my order and saw this, which is sort of confusing:

Subtotal (6 items) $24.48
Shipping & Handling $10.28
Order Total $43.83

Which means something weird is going on somewhere. Could you please clarify it? Thanks again!

Dear Paizo people,

I received an email letting me know of a problem with Order # 3461479. I noticed there that my RPG subscription still is active. On March 2 I asked for its cancellation (here: http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2s18r?Please-cancel-my-subscription).

Could you please remove the Pathfinder Unchained (OGL) Hardcover from my order?

Thank you!

Liberty's Edge

Dear Paizo people, please cancel my Pathfinder Roleplaying Game subscription for the time being. Thank you!

An Inquisitor of Vildeis, his personality was a combination of Javert and Alexander Anderson with a splash of Gotrek Gurnisson.

Deemed unplayable due to the impending party conflict it would have caused.

This is Buckaroo One, back from the 8th dimension. We're coming in fast.

Paladin of Iomedae. Or of Vildeis. I've wanted to play a follower of Vildeis for a really long time.

Liberty's Edge

Those seem to be scarce.

But try Blood of the City. No paladin or cleric, but a druid protagonist can maybe count? I just ordered Skinwalkers, looks like the main character is also good.

And I also cast my vote for getting a Tale about honest-to-goodness Good Guys.

There's a specific intelligent item ability called Speech, and it's not listed for the Blackblade. Since it appears in other intelligent weapons, this is one case were I call in the side of "if it's not listed, it's not there". Like I would say that the blade can't fly, regenerate, or smite.

I imagine it's a case of not being able to figure out the proper voltage and/or other parts of power generation that I don't understand! Probably the same reasons we don't try to power things with lightning bolts and such.

The one time I tried, my flux capacitor overloaded. Seems that that particular lightning bolt had 1.85 gigawatts instead of the expected 1.21. I ended up traveling to 1545 instead of 1945, and you know how awkward that can be.

Hello,

My subscription hasn't shipped yet, and it's August 22. I don't have a Character Class Deck sub, I did read the post on the Sticky thread but that's not my case. I still see it as Pending.

Any idea when it'll ship?

Thanks!

Liberty's Edge

Will be available Jan 23.

Jan 23, 2015? Six months from now, minus two days seems rather specific. Any reason for this, as in, did I miss some sort of announcement?

Liberty's Edge

Basically, nothing is canon unless you want it to be.

Events referenced in the novels as being "Golarion history" could be considered sort-of canonical, except they might turn out to be misleading information because no one in Golarion actually knows what happened in those times and the version stated in the novel is history "as far as the characters know it".

Liberty's Edge

Thank you.

Liberty's Edge

I would like to join, and bring a two-handed fighter into it. I have the time and would love to play RoW.

Liberty's Edge

I'd say not compatible, since gold dragons are metallic, not chromatic.

Liberty's Edge

I might have agreed, but I once saw a house cat fight off a pack of stray dogs. It was big, might have been a good 20 lbs, and it sent those dogs packing, whining and hurt. If you don't have a squirt bottle, or if the cat is one of those that just gets angry when sprayed, you might have a bad time.

Liberty's Edge

Please cancel my following subscriptions: Pathfinder Adventure Path, Pathfinder Player Companion, Pathfinder Modules, Pathfinder Tales and Pathfinder Comics.

Hopefully it's only temporary but I've got big school expenses coming.

They aren't sold as sets, they come randomly in the Pathfinder Battles boosters. You can get the minis as singles here, like Harsk or Lini.

Liberty's Edge

Or you can buy the singles here on the site, there's more than 4 already out (4 came out in the boxed thingy, but the rest have been coming out 2 or so to a set).

Torag: BRIAN BLESSED. Honestly, he wouldn't even need makeup. Just give him the costume and he'll bring his own warhammer.

Liberty's Edge

Toss in Mythic Vital Strike and doing ~1000 at level 20 is just about average for a fighter.

Biggest likely reason: Silver dragons are very cool, Huma and all from Dragonlance. Silver dragons are the #2 good dragon, and good dragons are supposed to be stronger than evil generally. But with just cold immunity, Silver dragons were only resistant to the very *least* of evil dragons, the barely sentient whites. Adding Acid immunity made them formidable foes for Black and Green, but still not overly dominant against the stronger Blues and Reds.

This is one explanation I would gladly accept as valid. I really love it when something in Pathfinder happens "because Dragonlance". No sarcasm, Dragonlance is my all-time favorite setting.

Liberty's Edge

I simply assume that all magic has a Visible Spooky Effect.

Paladin casting Detect Evil? Her eyes shine with the light of her deity.

Sorcerer casting stilled silent Detect Thoughts? A vague blue nimbus appears around his head.

Seems to flow well with every single illustration of a spellcaster doing his mojo published in the books.

It may have to do with the glue used and your humidity levels. If the air in your home/city is just dry enough, it can cause the glue to crack and lose its gluey-ness. I know it doesn't help you and I'm sorry that it's happening, but I work in publishing and when you ship books to different climates you get some pretty unexpected results.

I once took a paperback printed in the UK on holiday to the Amazon. Within fifteen minutes of getting off the airplane, the book had swollen to at least three times its original thickness. It was part of a box set, and it never again fit its case.

I'm just trying to explain that this doesn't necessarily mean that Paizo's printers are using sub-standard glue, it might just be an unfortunate coincidence of it not being able to withstand your specific climate.

Liberty's Edge

If you want to go for the Arclord of Nex PrC, it's great. Otherwise... it's been nerfed.
