Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Ah, clever. :)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I noticed my new September order lists my PACG subscription as "Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Deluxe". Is there a difference to the standard subscription?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Whee!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Ah, good, that sounds OK then, thanks.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm I'm just concerned that the adventure path might become "too easy" for the characters that already got the six rewards from Plunder & Peril.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Should characters starting the Skull & Shackles adventure path be completely fresh or should they already have played through the "Plunder & Peril" adventure? Or would characters who have finished that adventure be too strong for "The Wormwood Mutiny"?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Hm, my subscription shows "Payment authorized: Yesterday" but I didn't get the usual message indicating that.

Wait... the dragonkin rider is named Bescaylie? My players are going to have a good laugh at that. Maybe I'll take a page from Alien Nation about that and invent something humorous about a PCs name in Triaxian. Triaxic?

What's so funny about the name?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thanks for your detailed answer, Jason! I've backed the Kickstarter and I'm looking forward to those books.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Strange that this book does not have a print edition, while its extensions Mythic Magic: Advanced Spells I and Mythic Magic: Ultimate Spells I are available in print.

How does this book (and also the other two) compare to the upcoming Mythic Spell Compendium from the Mythic Mania Kickstarter? From the desciption of that book, one could be led to think that the Kickstarter book would include this content here; would that be a correct assumption?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thank you!

Planescape in a nutshell: "Hey there, stupid 1st-edition player! You thought you knew the names of planes and their creatures? Hahaha, we have changed all those names, in truth because we must comply to political correctness and cannot risk to offend unnamed parties, but we'll just pretend the new names have always been the correct names and the old names were just the ones known only to stupid ignoramuses like YOU! So it's your fault alone! In addition we're making up a new and stupid jargon to talk down to you, just because it's all the rage in other successful games now."

Never actually cared for Planescape and the abrasive tone of those books at all. Also the ugly cartoonish DiTerlizzi artwork. I've hated that product line right from the start. And Sigil itself simply never made any sense at all to me.

So, no, thanks.

My August subscription shipment (order #3222543) finally arrived today, but unfortunately, one position – Pathfinder Map Pack: Starship Chambers – was missing from the package. Can I get this delivered with an upcoming shipment?

On a side note, while I'm sure this is just a systems glitch, I've noticed that another copy of the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Skull & Shackles Base Set is listed in the September listing on the My Subscriptions page. Since order spawning day is approaching, please make sure, this does not cause this item to be added to my upcoming subscription order, as I just got my copy, and I certainly don't need two. Thanks!

That depends. Which jokes? And in what context? If one player is interfering with everybody else enjoying a good horror game, I will ask them not to do that.

Guess I wouldn't want to play in your campaign then, with a GM that mandates how I'd have to roleplay my character. But if your players are OK with that, that's fine.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm not giving you an example, because bardic performance cannot do what you are describing.

And if it could, I couldn't give an example, because I'm not a comedian.

I don't want to judge wan anybody is allowing or not allowing in their campaign, it just sometimes seem rather arbitrary.

True, but something that seems no longer to be known in Hollywood these days.
And why is hollywierd relevant?

Because it imprints its customs on its audience, and thus many people can no longer envision any other kind of comedy.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Comedy need not be goofiness. Anyway, you can't use bardic perfomance to fascinate an opponent in combat anyway, so your troll example is moot.

However, if a player's idea of Perform (Comedy) is channeling Daffy Duck in the middle of a Ravenloft campaign, I reserve the right as GM to forbid it.

So would you also forbid a player to make in-character jokes that have no mechanical effect?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

The PACG Skull & Shackles Base Set is still listed in my September subscription, even though it was shipped with the August shipment. Shouldn't this be weeded out by now?

Of course, I won't cancel my sub because I can always scavenge the AP for statblocks, maps, monsters and support articles. The beauty of Paizo APs is that you can always use the content even if the AP itself is not to your tastes.

Somehow I find it funny to see you complaining, with you being the one that usually makes fun of other people's complaining about APs :)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I know it was designed an easy encounter, or rather just something to bolster the other creature. In total that also didn't really threaten my party, and the fog just struck me at that moment to be particularly pathetic, and if you look at all its stats with its negative save modifiers and DC 8 ability, I can't help but feel pity. I could also have rolled better for initiative, of course. Probably just the way the encounter developed for my group.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I apologize. Its true, the book is ruined, I will never be able to play one of these classes.

The Hungry Fog is VERY much inspired by his movie, in any event. Note how well it works with undead! I'd peg the sailors from the movie as revenants who have leprosy though.

Not to rain on your parade here, but the hungry fog I recently sent against my players in

Spoiler:
Maider, Mother, Crone
was easily the most pathetic monster I've seen in a long time in any adventure. With its brilliant initiative modifier (I rolled a 3, for a total of ZERO) the thing had no chance at all against an 8th level partyl. A 6d6 damage touch attack is nice, but if you never get a turn, that doesn't help. Even if everybody had failed their dramatic will save ("I got 8 total, so I fail" – "No... that's actually enough") and had been shaken that wouldn't have changed a thing. I almost felt like I had to apologize to my players. :)

Actually a Paizo adventure path featuring orcs in more than a single encounter can easily be taken as weird, experimental and/or special, given what we've seen so far.

Pssst! The entire AP is actually fiction.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm not really "amped" either, but I wasn't for Jade Regent, or Carrion Crown, or Wrath of the Righteous, and I'm not sure about Iron Gods. Hell's Rebels however does intrigue me.

Fact is Paizo has to cater to all kinds of fans, and the last "traditional style" AP was probably Shattered Star, which ended two years before Giantslayer will begin. They can't just go and increase the "over-the-top-ness" for each adventure path.

Too bad, very unprofessional. I know is not a big deal, but I've paid 25 British pounds for a faulty product. First rule for any business: the customer doesn't pay your mistakes, even if it is a small one. I don't mind if is not a big deal, is YOUR mistake. At least you could have decrease the price of the book, or at least, let the retailers know as the customer can decide about paying for a faulty product or not. Because in Amazon, the photo of the book had the correct logo. I am going to return my copy and wait for a reprint

Don't forget to stomp your feet!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Well not everybody will want weird and experimental all the time, and I'm not even talking about myself.

I don't think calling it "rehash" is being entirely fair. Or you'll have to apply that to Fires of Creation as well., Rehash of a 30-year-old module, how boring!

What are you even expecting?

Whereas some were considering cancelling for Mummy's Mask and/or Iron Gods, I am at that point now. Both Giantslayer and Hell's Rebels seem a bit too vanilla for my tastes, it might be time to pause my subscription for 2015. We'll see.

Well, I am sure, Paizo will be able to do great things even with a seemingly "vanilla" premise.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Hmm I wonder how well this might fit in as a replacement class for The Frozen Stars in Reign of Winter? Has anybody done that?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Ethereal outsider sounds good, probably better than a weird ooze. Thanks!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Ka-ching!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Actually the ooze option occured to me, too. The creature type entry says they can in fact be intelligent, or rather they are mindless unless the creature entry says otherwise. Hmmm.

Edit: the color out of space from Bestiary 4 is an example of such a creature. Might work.

Not really, I was just curious.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I disregarded outsider because, well, the creature should be non-planar. Native outsider might be a possibility, though.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Hm, do we have any precedent for an incorporeal non-undead creature at all?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm working on a creature I may be intending to use in an adventure, but I am having trouble finding an appropriate creature type.

What I'm thinking of is an incorporeal, naturally invisible creature race that can only fully interact with the material world when they use a symbiotic possession ability to possess a corporeal creature which will usually be a humanoid. They should be living creatures, though, not undead. All the other creature types don't seem to fit either, so I'm stumped of what to assign.

Any ideas?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Ah great, thank you!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I know that, but this picture is not in that book.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Sorry to stir up such an OLD blog post, but I'm wondering: was the second picture "The Face Pyramid" ever actually published in a Pathfinder product? I looked for it in the old books from that time, but I was unable to find it.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

OK, seems I misread that passage.

Still, I don't really see the point of this class, as long it doesn't actually perform better in combat than the cleric.

Going from 9-level casting to only 6-level casting in exchange for heavy armor and enhancing your weapon for a small number of rounds per day seems to be a step down for me (besides the fact that it's another thing promoting the 5-minute adventuring day).


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm not sure.. This here seems to indicate otherwise:

Advanced Class Guide wrote:
The warpriest can decide to use the weapon’s base damage instead of the sacred weapon damage—this must be declared before the attack roll is made. (If the weapon’s base damage exceeds the sacred weapon damage, its damage is unchanged.)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm trying to understand the warpriest's sacred weapon ability. It looks like this ability can be more a disadvantage than an advantage, except on very high levels or with especially wimpy weapons.

Basically, if I understand correctly, the warpriest has to take the damage progression from his class table instead of the normal weapon damage for any weapon for which he has Weapon Focus.

That would mean, if I were, for example, a warpriest of Gorum, and I'd like to fight with a greatsword (like the iconic warpriest seems to do), I can only deal my 2d6 with the greatsword if I DO NOT take Weapon Focus (greatsword)? If I take Weapon Focus (greatsword), my damage is reduced to 1d6 at level 1, and I have to wait until 15th level so I can actually deal 2d6? And only at 20th level I'm getting an actual benefit from this ability?

That can't be right, can it?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

You have my sympathies.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Shipment, finally! :)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

The "GameMastery" version was for D&D v.3.5, which means it might refer to some Skills from that game, such as Spot or Listen, etc. They were converted to Pathfinder RPG references for the newer "Pathfinder Cards" version.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Dragon-Focused AP in Avistan - sure. Solar System AP - sure, too. But an AP taking place fully on Triaxus? Not really.
