I like the idea of a Sanctified Slayer Inquisitor, with the Nightmare Fist, Nightmare Weaver, and Shatter Defenses feats.

A Gladiolus, is a flower.
They usually don't have Scabbards for those.

A Gladius, is a type of Sword, and they did indeed have Scabbards.

The more you know...

Nobody is really sure how it works.

Light or One-handed, this weapon is finessable.

Does threaten?

Can it deal nonlethal without penalty?

Does it provoke when used?

Who knows?

Anyways, an Urban Barbarian with an Elven Curve Blade is an option.

Well, Pathfinder 3.5, as Curse of the Crimson Throne is a 3.5 adventure path.

Swashbucklers are supposed to fill a niche for Pirate themed characters and 3 musketeer type characters. Why would you try to force a weapon like a Katana into this theme? Pazio needs to add a few weapons like the epee, foil, main gauche and the sword breaker with rules.

Your class is not your identity.

You create the flavor, and it is never restricted by the name of your class.

It requires houserules to create this "flavor restriction".

A bad houserule.

Keep a Pregen around.

New rule: Nobody plays without a sheet. If you have no sheet, you can use the Pregen.

You can't play a Rogue, unless you lie, cheat, and steal, whilst being terrible at all those things, and just about everything else.

Well, now you are making a case for specific vs general.

Generally, Supernatural abilities do not provoke.

Except, there is nothing that specifically notes drinking an Extract provokes.

This would mean, that without specific noting that it provokes, than we are to go to general as default.

So, without having them count as potions, for at least determining whether they provoke, then their is no reason to assume they provoke.

Let them know, it was just for them, but now you are starting a more serious campaign.

They may appreciate the favor, and repay in kind, by keeping with the tone.

So.

I realized with Swashbuckler finesse you can dex to hit with a shield that has shield spikes on it. Can't you? One-handed weapon, and with the spikes it becomes Piercing...
I wonder if you can get dex to damage somehow, or if it's just gonna require agile on the spikes...
I think I'll build a dex based shield brawler now haha. capn america style. Assuming none of the shield feats require str aas a prereq. be nice to get away with just 13.

Yes, a Swashbuckler, or Daring Champion Cavalier, can finesse a Heavy Shield.

Anyone can finesse a Light shield, and it can be enchanted with the Agile enchantment.

Pathfinder is a game where you can have four arms, and wield a Laser Rifle, a chainsaw on a stick, and a pointy metal beard.

You can, without magical aid, create complicated chemical compounds, in 6 seconds.

The game is littered, with weapons, and fighting styles, that their ability to be used in real world combat, is inconceivable.

Somehow, the trusted weapon of many real world civilizations, is too damn hard for you to imagine being used in each hand?

This is not the game for you.

Is this madness?

No.

This is Pathfinder.

Historical combat proves the shield is very much a weapon.

A weapon, that you kill with.

Look, fellas. You like it? Feel free to have it in your game. I hope you have fun.

It's not happening at my table because I believe it's as dopey as a hat made of angry weasels. If that makes me narrow-minded, I can live with that.

I also have strong opinions on putting your tongue in a light socket and wearing your underwear outside your pants, which are both things you can totally do in real life...but which are very bad ideas.

Falchions are STUUUPID!

All that "sharped" metal. Only silly douches fight with Falchions.

Falchions shouldn't even be weapons.

Like covering your fist in marmalade, and sticking up you colon, whilst wearing a silly hat.

Falchions are like dildos made of solidified stupid, meant to screw turkeys on a rainy Thursday.

The only people who used Falchions in real life, were those trying to commit suicide, but ended up having a seizure, brought on by overwhelming idiocy.

Also, only sluts own cats.

When I played a cavalier with a lance, I did a lot of damage on charges... but the rest of the time I was basically a mediocre reach build. The cav's challenge discourages you from hopping from one enemy to the another repeatedly, and you can't charge an enemy once you're already adjacent to it. Plus, sometimes you just can't bring your horse along.

A glaive cavalier would be a perfectly solid choice-- he wouldn't get super charges, but he'd be a bit better in all other circumstances, so it'd even out. Plus, this opens up a completely different strategy.

1. With a glaive and a spiked gauntlet, you threaten out to 10 feet.
2. Your horse is Large, and thus threatens a pretty wide radius itself even without reach.
3. You can grant teamwork abilities to your allies, many of which improve flanking bonuses.
4. Your horse counts as your ally.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

Gotta correct you:

1) You cannot threaten with a Glaive and Spiked Gauntlet at the same time. You can with a Glaive and Armor Spikes.
2) A Horse only has a 5ft. reach.

Yeah, Supernatural abilities do not require verbal, or somatic components, unless the ability explicitly says otherwise.

They do not provoke, require concentration, and cannot be disrupted, or subject to counterspelling.

They do not function in an Antimagic Field though.

For awesomeness, a Human Feral Child Druid, with an Ape Companion, and the Monkey Style feat.

Now that is pretty cool reminds me of the Evil Monkey King if you focuses on a bow staff.

The archetype itself is pretty cool and the idea of being brought up as a Feral Child gives tons of RP and Mechanic options to any animal you choose.

Extra awesome? You can nab the Eye for Talent alternate racial trait for Human, and start with a 4 Int Ape.

We used to have a cheater in one of my groups.

Bold faced lied about it, when confronted about it.

Not autistic.

Just a creepy liar, who smelled like a sweaty pig anus filled with old cheese, that eventually left state, after trying to make out with my sleeping sister.

Some people, are just terrible people.

Ever play Chrono Trigger?

** spoiler omitted **

That's the real purpose of a Monk... the guy who keeps your party able if you're ever deprived of all your nice magic gear. You walk into an Antimagic Field, and BAM, all your magic gear shuts off. That nice +3 Holy Greatsword you're so fond of? It's just a MWK Greatsword now. Sure, the Monk's AoMF shuts off as well, but, while other martial classes beat out a Monk when both are optimized with magic gear, the Monk evens out when the magic gear is taken away.

Ayla was my favorite character. Marle and Ayla were pretty much constant, as that's how you got all the cool stuff. Like magic pants, you wear on your head.

Let's keep politics, racism, and other such hot topics out of the thread.

The point has been made.

Let's move on.

Look, if we go by the FAQ alone, then it applies to Two-handed weapons only. Full stop.

If we say it applies to One-handed wielded in two hands, and Ranged weapon that require two-handed weapons to use, then we must have a reason why.

So, we have some that say that any attack, regardless of what that weapon is, that utilizes two hands, uses up the off-hand, as a two-handed weapon does, as noted in the FAQ, even though the FAQ never mentions any other weapon.

Then, we have those that say this is applies to any attack that adds x1.5 strength to damage, as the off-hand is used up in additional x0.5 to damage.

Now, either way, we have to read a little bit more than is written in the FAQ.

I hope we can, at the very least, agree to the latter statement.

Alright?

Actually, the term "Negro" and "Colored" are deemed offensive.

Okay, it boils down to:

Does the FAQ cover just two-handed weapons, or any weapon that requires two hands to use?

For the right price, and with DM approval, I see no reason why this isn't possible.

I am sure it has been said, but the rules on customs are only guidelines.

It goes on to note that abilities, and spell effect, and enchantments, should be carefully considered. A constant Bless effect, is not equal to a constant True Strike effect, even though they are both first level spells.

Also, it notes how to estimate these costs, and does not note it as a hard formula.

So, you have to compare this custom magic armor, to existing magic armors, and try to estimate an appropriate price.

The end price is subject to DM approval.

So, in theory, you could have a set of Mithral Celestial Plate armor, but you have to realize custom magic guidelines, are just that.

Guidelines.

Too often I see PCs taking the formula for estimates, and forgetting that is all it is.

An estimate.

So, when it comes to custom magic items, a Mithral Celestial Plate armor, is no different than a Ring of Truestrike, in that they both need DM approval.

Well, the reason there is no specific wording allowing Bow to be used with two-weapon fighting, is because there never was a restriction before.

RAW was altered.

Can one two weapon fight, with a Longbow/Shortbow, and an Unarmed Strike?

Just because an ability score determines the value of a bonus, does not mean it is necessarily the source of the bonus.
