Indeed, the Critical Fumbles seem fun at first, to all, but that wears off eventually.

They work for one-shots, but are a horror for campaigns.

Critical Fumbles also hurt martial more, and create a bigger imbalance between martial/caster.

Just wait until the Witch PC spams Misfortune/Cackle along with Ill-Omen.

Fighters will punch themselves in the face, but the Witch just stands back, makes no roll, and just lets the enemies kill themselves.

I don't like this kind of attitude.

I often play with a new player, here and there, and the one that would never do, is give them a hard time about RP.

Think about it. RP is hard. For some, it comes easy, and for others, not so much.
When it comes to someone who has little to no experience doing it, then the experience can be terrifying.

So, if what they are doing isn't hurting, or offending anyone, then why make a fuss?

What gets accomplished?

Did anyone start having more fun, because everyone ganged up to make sure the other player didn't "play too smart"?

Will this make later sessions more fun for anyone?

Was this even a problem, that needed a solution?

This isn't about rules at all. It is about a broken social contract.

Critical Fumbles sound fun, but in practice, they are horrible.

You know who suffers? The players. At best, they are DM porn.

It got so bad in a previous campaign, that we had 3 PCs die, from critical fumbles alone. No monsters critical hits, bad tactics, or traps. I wasn't even told about the houserule until second session.

I have since been, very vocal, that I despise Critical Failures, and like opt out of a game that includes them.
Well, that or run a reroll focused PC.

There are the Guardian Scroll Golems.

Man, I feel you on that Ravingdork.

I game with a Lawyer, a Math Major, a Philosophy Major, and a Computer System Analyst in the Navy(I think that the title).

Who am I in the group? The former starving artist, who spent about 5 years homeless. I tend to get lost in a lot of conversations.

I have known these guys for over 15 years(not how much more), and I am still the guy who knows the rules of 3.5 and Pathfinder the best.

Of course, the moment I need to use any math, I usually have to look to someone else.

By the way, a 4 intelligence, is the same as the Village Idiot NPC, from the GameMastery Guide.

I am really just going to give this very solid piece of advice:

Passive Aggressive measures never accomplish a damn thing.

Face it head on, forget it, or walk away.

Are we getting off topic?

Forget about the Swarmsuit for a moment, and let me describe a scene...

"Hmm, it sure has gotten chilly out. I should have dressed warmer. Ah, well, good thing I have these magical sleeves! There we go, much better."

This is exactly what I imagined this item being able to do, the moment I saw it.

Now, I have people telling me it cannot even produce a warm coat, that actually keeps my PC warm?

Poppycock.

Many of the prerequisites for magical items make no sense.

Example: All Tool's Vest requires Summon Instrument. It provides tools for Craft, and has nothing to do with musical instruments, or the Perform skill in any way.

True.

Hand of Apprentice explicitly denies Combat Maneuvers.

Remember, Shocking Grasp is magical electricity.

It resembles, and in many ways, acts like normal electricity.

There needs to be Thunderstone powered instruments, like the Thunderstone powered Piston Maul.

We have guns, Wizards, and robots.

Something like a electric guitar(or bass) is not that far a stretch.

It is an outfit.

You can also produce things like the Cold/Hot Weather Outfit, Shinobi shōzoku, or Pickpocket's outfit, and receive the relevant bonuses.

Same here with the Warlock.

Nothing was easier to pass to the newer player who wanted to "blast it magic", than the Warlock.

Not every low stat is the result of some min/maxed munchkin player.

I am incredibly tired of this misconception.

Higher point buy.

The only time I ever saw any kind of "dump stat" in higher point buy games, is when it was vital to a character concept.

You will need to reference the unwritten rules.

This mentioned FAQ merely implies that Armor Spikes require an available "off-hand" to make an off-hand attack with them.

RAW, your combination is doable.

SKR even confirmed this.

Currently, only unwritten rules prevent this.

This whole thread makes me want to go play HârnMaster (where there are no classes).

As are with many other systems.

You could also play 4E, where every class is exactly the same.

Open the skill back up, scroll down to the tables

To scroll my rulebook, I'd have to rip the pages out and that seems a bit extreme.

As to units of length, it was established at my high school that the non-scientific universal unit was [insert colloquial name of part of the male anatomy not usable on this board] length with the abbreviation dl.

Since when is dick not usable on these boards?

It's a common used measurement.

I believe it is a base 5.6 inches.

So, you just Photoshop your PC into super awesomeness.

Bad houserule.

This isn't even covered in "rule of cool".

Not cool, bro.

Savage Skald actually has some rage-like effects.

The ability to work others into a battle rage as well, suites the flavor.

It's stability, is based of the fact that it is a floating sheet of pure force.

I doesn't even need to go anywhere.

You could use it at the edge of a cliff, and just extend out into the distance.

None of your feats change when using Alter Self, or any other Polymorph spell.

Never.

Never ever.

Maybe more creatures will be added to the choices for the Monstrous Mount feat?

Then, I could get my Unicorn mount.

By the way, can I use my current Warpriest, using the current Playtest, or do I have to use the updates, as per the new Pregens?

It would be hard to update, without the complete class change rules.

Do you need to be from the River Kingdoms, originally?

Really, the Oracle, or even a Savage Skald or Thundercaller Bard seems to be more fitting.

Hell, the Savage Skald retains Bardic Knowledge, which will make you very knowledgeable, and fits with the leadership vibe.

You wouldn't just ask him to tone it down in future?

** spoiler omitted **

Usually, I would. This particular action, would be the exception.

For me, this is as bad as flipping a table, throwing dice at another player, or loudly, and cruelly, verbally abusing a player.

Some things, will remove the option of a second chance.

The game would be ruined for me, no matter how they acted afterward.

I come to have fun, and when that is no longer possible, I leave.

Hopefully, the player would learn to not act that way next time.

"Critical Failures" don't exist in Pathfinder.

Rolling a 1, is an automatic miss, and nothing more.

To be fair, they don't exist in the 'core rules', but seeing as how Paizo themselves publish a deck of critical fumble cards, I think it's safe to call them an optional rule.

One of the worst, in my experience.

Because the rules in this game often lack internal consistency and that's bad game design.

There is already another thread, in the Rules Forum, where you can discuss this.

If you don't want to necro it, then create a new one, and discuss it in in the proper place.

Did it ever get answered how Weapon Focus(Ray), and Weapon Focus(Net) interact with the Sacred Weapon ability?

There are actually a number of Deities that have the Net as their favored weapon, so I ask.

So, we will actually be able to get a Nightmare Mount?

I am pretty damn hyped about that.

Now, if only there was a way to get an Unicorn mount...

If "there is no rule for it", then creating a rule, is a houserule.

1) No.

2) No.

You can choose to deal nonlethal though.

Fate's Favored is a better trait for you.

It pumps Divine Favor, and your racial bonus to saves.
