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.

I think "In the Mouth of Madness" is one the most convoluted and incomprehensible movies I've ever seen.

Aw, don't say that! The nashi have been in my home game for about two years now. D:

Don't worry, it's just me. If theres one thing that completely destroys the attraction of a movie or something similar for me, it's talking and/or anthropomorphized animals. I just can't stand that. So, to "Guardians of the Galaxy", for me, it's just NO. :)

Hmm. The order's order history page (order #3222543) still lists the Add-on Deck and says this:

Hmm. Would it perhaps be possible to get the PDF now and upgrade that to a Print/PDF bundle later, or will I need to have to wait for a bundle to be announced?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I just got an email explaining the situation. However, it also says

THE EMAIL wrote:
You should already have received a new confirmation email for your order showing the Character Add-On deck and August promo cards moved to your sidecart.

I didn't get any such email, though.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That's great!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Sara Marie, thanks for your work and for keeping us in the loop!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Oooh, that looks mighty interesting. Any chance of a print edition?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I remember I rather liked the movie at the time.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

dun dun DUNNN...


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I can't really relate to all the Final Fantasy game references, as I don't play games on consoles, but what's funny considering this thread is, I saw the "Final Fantasy" movie many years ago, and if I recall correctly, it was a purely science fiction film.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Ah OK, thanks for clearing that up.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Liz made some remarks on the Base Set product discussion set that sound like it's not only the Add-on Deck causing the hold-up, but that there are no Base Sets to ship to waiting subscribers either. Am I understanding this correctly?

At this point, can't you just put the card game stuff on back order and ship the remaining stuff, when it's probably unknown when the rest will be available. Hmm, on the other hand, though, that might cost me an addidtional $50 in shipping, so I better just wait.

Sigh.

EDIT: Liz cleared that up, she was referring to something different; Base Set are available. Well, ship it then, I say! :)

I have not seen or heard anything about it yet.

Wait... does that mean you don't have Base Sets to ship to subscribers either? I though it was just the Add-on Deck that caused the hold-up?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Some of us are still waiting for part 1...

You mean the first class since the shadowdancer, right?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

So are these three adventures the same as the introductory scenarios in the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Skull & Shackles Base Set?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thank you, Vic, for posting this explanation. I can definitely understand that you are most likely more unhappy about the situation than any of us.

What's so annoying about the situation is that it's not just that the new card game set is held up—I could easily live with that—but that this hold-up also keeps my remaining role-playing game subscriptions from shipping.

As I work in software development, I can certainly understand, however, that it's probably not easy to says, "well then let's just ship the rest", when your software doesn't support a move like that. It's annoying but understandable.

I've bought an Advance Class Guide now at my FLGS, and I guess I will have to find someone in one of my groups to pass on my subscription copy once it arrives, but that's probably not a problem. The rest will just have to wait...

Anyway, I hope Paizo's future is not going to significantly impacted by this issue, though.

This IS it. The payment was taken from my account on 8/8 and Erik just said they were hoping to get them by the 22nd.

You might be misinterpreting your credit card statement. They never do that, because, as far as I understand it, it's against the law in the US to do so. What you are seeing probably is the the authorization pre-charge, which makes sure a customer's card has enough credit for when the day comes to actually charge the card.

If you're saying the amount was actually deducted from your account (and not your credit card) then there might actually be something fishy going on on the end of the card provider.

4) Debate is healthy and in this case there is really no right or wrong answer.

Except there is. Paizo have published an extensive article about the "ecology of the android" in Fires of Creation about the nature of androids, and the creative director has already contradicted your position in this very thread. Your view of androids is definitely not what androids in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting is.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

What a poser indeed. :)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Same here...

Calling a sapient being with an obvious gender 'it', regardless of whether they are 'artificial' is basically racist b**+%!$+. And generally a giant dick move.

In fact I would recommend to Insnare watching the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Measure of a Man", which deals with this exact issue in a masterful way.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thanks for the file, from me, too!

Actually they are living beings, and they have a soul. In game terms, they are humanoids with the android subtype, and thus affected by anything that targets living creatures. They do, however, have the Constructed extraordinary ability, similar to inevitables, so they are also target by effects that constructs. The fact that they have souls and outward sexes implies that they also have gender, and as such should not be referred to as "it" unless you have the intention of insulting them.

Kairos, I understand, bit I'm curious now, did you never play Tomb Raider for example?

I use PDF Expert, mainly because it offers a full text search across all documents, a great feature for a library of Paizo PDFs.

I have a file called UW-Interior_v21.pdf in my downloads at makeyourgameslegendary.com. Weird.

Spoiler:
I think you still misunderstand. First, the mayor ist called out as a lashunta in the city stat block. Second, nowhere is it said, or even implied, that she came to Golarion with the Divinity or that she is that old. There is no such association, no indication that the Divinity ever even visited Castrovel. She's just a lashunta that found her way from there to Golarion in her own way.

Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Got it!

But why is the PDF missing the cover?

There are even more romance options to try out if you play as female Shepard, you know?

I expressed some pretty extreme disappointment, earlier in this thread, that Obsidian's designers' talent was being wasted on a port of a vapid card game.

The card game is most certainly anything but vapid. You may be thinking of deckbuilding collectible card games, but the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game nothing like these games.

Respectfully, I think you have no clue what you are talking about. The card game is an awesome game.
