Speaking of playtesting and rogues... wasn't the "no quickdraw alchemical items" change a result of a rogue playtest? Or was that just propaganda?

No, that was a nerf because The Gaming Den's Frank told Jason in Paizo about Alchemy throwing rogues are great.

I mean, think, touch ac sneak attacks!

So Jason made sure to nerf quick draw of them and sneak attack of them. Then greases application of it, etc.

Yes, Frank was rude during the beginning, but the math was on Frank's side.

Huh. They nerfed it, but added it back with the Underground Chemist.
i still have absolutely no clue how that AT isnt a waste of ink, or why people think it isnt.

It wasn't, but then the "typed" untyped multisource bonus FAQ came out.

Now, it's a blind, crippled Alchemist wannabe.

So, a "for now" understanding of it's functions, is not entirely possible?

Surely, we must have something.

ADAMANTINE CHAIN, PRICE 3,030 GP
WEIGHT 2 lbs.
This 10-foot-long chain has hardness 20 and 6 hit points. A
successful DC 30 Strength check is required to burst it, making
it strong enough to hold many types of giants.

Well, with this FAQ, one could reasonably wield a Bastard Sword, in one hand, without proficiency, as an improvised weapon.

You could just throw Clubs.

Cheapest thrown weapon in the game.

No.

The bite only becomes secondary, when combined with a manufactured weapon attack, during a full attack.

Oh, and only during that full attack.

AoOs made are as a primary attack.

I can treat a weapon as a piercing and slashing weapon, simultaneously.

I can treat a weapon as a melee and ranged weapon, simultaneously.

Why does this case come with so many unwritten exceptions?

Trapfinding, is now a trait, and available as a spell.

Even more silly, for the deniers, is they focus on one particular concept.

A Rogue could just as easily be a LG bastion of good, and focus on "fair play" in combat.

Is that another poster sticking their fingers in their ears, and yelling "NAH NAH NAH NAH I can't hear you!! Rogue is best at everything you doody head haters!!"?

Neat.

That is really insightful.

Does not the Bastard Sword change shape, handedness, and has it's hardness and hit points, along with how it interacts with feats and abilities, depend on how many hands touch it, but sometimes not, and sometimes yes, which varies, depending on if it's correctly sized or not, and that too is subject to change?

Lucky for you, these are all untyped bonuses, that stack.

For now.

Of course, these may become "typed" untyped bonuses, in the future.

What is this blasphemy?

Some bonuses, are just bonuses, but sometimes, a single bonus, can have simultaneous multiple sources, creating "typed" untyped bonuses, due to one of the multi-sources, being the same.

It's all clearly stated in the unwritten rules.

Well, for those who said they would throw up their arms, and quit, if they allowed larger weapons to be wielded, the Giant Hunter's Handbook is out.

I give you, the Titan Fighter:

Giant Hunter's Handbook wrote:

Titan Fighter (Fighter)

Titan fighters make use of enormous weapons others can
barely lift. Titan fighters have the following class features.

Giant Weapon Wielder (Ex): At 1st level, a titan fighter can wield two-handed melee weapons intended for creatures one size category larger than himself, treating them as two-handed weapons. He takes an additional –2 penalty on attack rolls when using an oversized two-handed weapon. This ability replaces the fighter’s 1st level bonus feat.

Sorry to see you go...

I wish I knew. I have had discussions with this guy in my group about stuff like this all the time. His answer is, "I just don't think Pathfinder is a 'refluff it' kind of game." WTF does that mean?

Maybe: "Look, you are coming dangerously close to openly revealing my lack of imagination. Do not do that!"

Seriously, let's not use the roleplay excuse for Rogues.

That's just ugly, and dismissive of the Rogue, and in the end, false.

One could roleplay the hell out of a Commoner.

Why do I need to keep reminding everyone that a class name does not define a PC's personality, or a player's ability to Roleplay?

It's like a banana sticker for self-righteous, holier-than-thou roleplayers, who feel the need to tell anyone playing with a strong build, they are doing "wrong".

If you are good at creating a great personality/backstory for a PC, and can roleplay the hell out of it, then you don't need a terrible class to prove it.

You can do it with any class, and not be terrible.

You could give them to a church of Lamashtu.

It's in their tenets of faith to care for monstrous children.

It's even in the Antipaladin Code.

All things are monstrous, and only the weak hide their marks. I show the world as it is.

I will bring the outcasts in from the cold and teach them the taste of victory.

I fill the wombs. I birth the children. I teach our enemies why they fear the night.

I bring madness to the cities, that in their blood and fear they may understand the chaos of the world.

I will spread the Mother’s seed. If the blind cannot be taught to see, their children can.

Which other classes can do better as well.
Eh, not really. Not in terms of damage done, I mean. They may be less reliant on others to help deny an enemy dex to AC, but, iirc, rogues have the largest sneak attack pool. Other classes also tend to delay getting access to it.

No, really, other classes do this better.

They get it off more often, and usually have other things to add to damage.

Thing is, there is good chance that there is no "good church, or friendly orphanage" that would take them in.

Orcs are naturally strong, dim, and their culture promotes violence.

So, selling them into slavery, or raising them yourself, are usually the only options, outside of mercy killing them.

Giving them to an Orc tribe, means they will grow up, and kill innocents, and if you meet them again, you will likely have to kill them.

I love the Rogue too.

My first Pathfinder PC was a Rogue.

They still suck at any role, they are supposed to do.

Now, I just play the "Rogue" concept, and play a class that's better suited for the role.

I wish it wasn't that way, but that's how it is.

Sell them to a nearby country with legal slavery.

Yes... because that's totally NOT evil. Lol.

Really?

A home, food, a place in society, and possibly an education?

There are no Orc orphanages.

You either kill them, sell them, or take responsibility for them yourself.

I will point you here.

There are tons of threads like that.

Also, it is not "hate", it disappointment.

The PFS games in my area have increased so much, you have to book a week ahead.

Many have moved over into home games, so they can still play.

I prefer the place I play, as they serve beer, and ice cream.

I keep a flash drive of all my watermarked PDFs on me.

I have not been seen a single PFS judge without a laptop, or tablet.

I own a hardcopy of almost every Pathfinder Book, but I am not bringing a library with me to every PFS game.

You still don't get any extra attacks.

You would be limited to your BAB.

Two-weapon fighting is an option to get another attack, but you will take penalties.

You need to remember that the throwing shield description does not say it gives you extra attacks.

The idea of banning, or restricting multiclassing, leaves a taste of vomit in my mouth.

Further, the accusations of those taking 1, or 2 level dips are only "power gamers", which is somehow a bad thing, is disgustingly offensive.

Try to list specifics when making such claims.

Social skills, Stealth, Assasination, theft, and many others.

This has been gone over, a nearly uncountable number of times.

There is no role, action, specialty, or theme, that cannot be done better, by another class, than the Rogue.

I played with them once.

I had two PCs accidentally kill themselves.

I made it quite clear, after that, I would walk away, if used.

I did put in an exception, that if there was no other way to play, except with critical fumbles, that I would run a reroll focused Witch, and turn the system against my enemies.

I will walk away from any table that uses critical fumbles.

Why would the retraining rules only apply to one specific situation?

I can't get behind the idea, that the only reason retraining was created, was for those who created poorly built PCs.

I feel that it would be demeaning to players, to say that this is the only purpose, for which these rules were created.

It is even further demeaning, to suggest, that if you are not a player who has a poorly built PC, then by using these rules, it is some sort of "cheat".

So, this "bunglers, and beginners only" clause, is, in my opinion, not in the spirit of the rules.

I thought it important, to repeat, that I have had a good number of very good experiences in PFS.

The Fighter is weak, and the Magus is balanced.

The Wizard is OP.
