I have never seen a player truly punished for a honest mistake.

Know now, that the PFS Community remains fully aware, that everyone involved is a human being.

As you can see, they also realize that humans make mistakes.

So, if anything else happens, that was just a mistake, just be honest, and you shouldn't be punished in any way. It will be fixed, and others will be there to help.

Trust me, the Unchained Rogue is everything everyone wanted from the Rogue.

I am building my first Rogue since Beta Playtest because of it's existence.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Adamantine Shields are priced just like any other weapon.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Go here, or here.

Now you have the Unchained Rogue.

If you like it, then you can nab the PDF here, for about 10 bucks, when you get around to it.

You must be very new.

Welcome!


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Herolab doesn't know you are not just updating a PC to Herolab.

It's not a bug.

Some things, you just have to actually check yourself.

Like, if something was recently made legal, or illegal.

Herolab will take a little while to be updated.

You accidentally picked an illegal trait. You go to your VC, say "oops" and then he/she tells you to pick a legal trait.

That's it.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

From the Pathfinder Unchained book.

Core Rogue has been shown to be the statistically worst class, outside of NPC Classes.

Unchained Rogue actually works, and even gets Weapon Finesse and Dex to damage for free. You can even give it the Knife Master archetype you are using. Basically, everything you have, and more, and better at what you already do.

Also, this belongs in the Advice section.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Hey, remember when we couldn't price Mithral Weapons with a negligible weight?

Eventually, there was a FAQ. Price them as half a pound.

So, just wait for a FAQ. Promote it.

You don't need to be a d**k about it either way, with "LOL free Cold Iron", or "Usually, is always, for I am the Wooden Club Master, you cheaty bastard".

Just avoid buying a Cold Iron Club until there is some sort of FAQ, or Developer input.

Does the rich parent trait allow you to ignore the rules?

What are you suggesting?

Obviously, you are being snarky, but you message is unclear.

No one even knows what, or who, you are replying to.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Retraining has cost, and requires time.

I do not agree, or disagree, with doing it, but it's not free.

Clubs can be made of metal.

In real life, sure.

In Pathfinder, not that I'm aware of.

Three VCs told me otherwise. I have a Silver Club, and no one has told me it was illegal.

Basically, a Fish Bat, Tire Thumper, Straightstick, Truncheon, Lead Pipe, or Baton.

I actually carry a fish bat around with me.

When someone asks what a metal club looks like, I show them.

Look at the description:

This weapon is usually just a shaped piece of wood, sometimes with a few nails or studs embedded in it.

Usually, does not equal always.

Hell, there is a creature in the Bestiary 4, that wields a +5 holy cold iron club.

So, some clubs are wood, but for me, my clubs are metal.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

It's this kind of BS that screws over my Club PC.

Clubs can be made of metal.

I would just pay for them as if they cost 5sp, or just avoid it.

Don't f**k things up, because you think you are clever.

My PC is not the only one that carries a Club in PFS.

Unwritten rules that conflict with written rules.

I f**king hate them all.

I was always viewing my potential Gripilli as looking like Frog from Crono Trigger..

Basically humanoid but the frog lil bits.

Yeah, that is still too "furry!?!" for this DM.

Somehow Kitsune get a free pass, because he/she obviously doesn't know the term "yiffing", or it's origins.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

You don't have Deadly Agility in there, which is the whole Dex to damage thing.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Couldn't you just ask to reflavor the Grippli to appear more Human-like?

Maybe, like the japanese Akaname.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Yeah, that or a trait for a Bite, just for funzies.

Seeing as your example build has a 13 Charisma, let's suppose my DM requires the Empathy feat, how much would change, and how?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Grippli are Furry?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I would likely replace Omen with Awakened from Stasis, to be able to "sleep" for just two hours to regain Rage.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

The Scarred Witch Doctor has never even been PFS legal. There was no reason to change it. Con casting was it's whole shtick. Now that's gone. Now, we have an archetype, for a Int based caster, for a -2 Int Race.
The fitting nature, and a chunk of the flavor, are gone as well.
Nobody decided to change some kind Dwarf Monk archetype, to now have all it's abilities based off charisma. That is just as silly.

The change was needless, pointless, and obnoxious.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Well, Aldori Dueling Mastery might work for you.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I wonder if Hamatula Strike would work with a Snag Net.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Okay, a few questions:

1) Why the Omen trait?

2) How will I be proficient with Wakizashis?

3) Should I not use the claws?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Indeed.

Nets and Snag Nets are good for the Conductive quality.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Ah, but what about a Flaming Net?

Actually, the Feral Hunter archetype for the Hunter gets Wildshape, and is quite fighty.

Only gets 6th level spells, but it may be easier for your DM to accept.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Fencing Grace still can, as well as Dervish Dance.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Also, you can have PCs that are both mechanically viable, and flavorful.

Hard to comprehend for some, but it is quite true.

In fact, making the numbers meet the flavor, should be something that people strive for.

You may flavor your "world's greatest swordsman" PC, who has a 8 in Str, Dex, and Con, but your numbers tell otherwise.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Can they handle businesses that you own from Vanities, such as those outlined in the Pathfinder Society Field Guide?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I very much like the Warpriest.

I have been playing one in PFS since the playtest.

I really like the fact that you can specialize in just about any weapon, and still be fairly competent.

My Warpriest focuses on using the lowly Club.

You do realize, that even in PFS, you can reflavor traits.

It's not overpowered, and I feel you are seriously blowing it out of proportion.

That's my feelings on it anyway.

Also, if you must drop other editions, and gloat how good they are, then my only response can be, go play it instead.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Can Slaves assist with Day Job checks?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Also, I know you are not interested in non-Core Classes, but the Oracle is pretty rad.

Natural or Lunar Oracle pretty much covers all you needs and desires.

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Like an Adventuring Astronomer? :)


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Well, I believe a Race Boon opens up some of those.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Mendevian Priest Cleric is actually pretty fighty.

You can go Reach Cleric, and use a Longspear, or choose a God with a Favored Reach Weapon.

Non-Evil options for Gods with a Favored Reach Weapon are:

Bokrug, Keltheald, Neshen, Olheon, and Shelyn.

How do legal traits and magic items that require you to worship Aroden work?

It's actually one of the weaker traits.

It's exciting early, but quickly becomes meaningless, other than for flavor.

About the only qualifier on this is if you're doing 'slow' advancement and it takes forever to level up... or coin is REALLY hard to come by for your adventurers. Then it may have a disproportionate impact in relation to it's 'pull' weight.

I have it on a home campaign character for story reasons, and the GM has pretty much said 'you get the candy first...'

Even then, it's much more beneficial toward martial PCs, who depend on gear, and such games truly show the martial/caster disparity, so it helps put a teeny tiny push towards balance.

Please don't kill one of my favorite traits.

Heed these words of wisdom:

Let it be.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I have given it some thought, and Steadfast Personality might be better than Iron Will, for this PC.

Not sure what level to do it at.

Also, I am considering Aberrant instead of Destined. Aberrant Fortitude will allow me to rage cycle with the Flawed Scarlet and Green Cabochon Ioun Stone.

Yeah, I've got it, thanks. And sorry if I sounded snippy. It's just that things like that are ridiculously confusing.

"Are you an 'A' or a 'B'?"
"Yes."

Argh.

Its actually my favorite way to answer those questions if applicable. It basically means "of the options presented, both are actually true."

So if i were to run away from a fight, and the guy taunts me with "are you a man or a coward?" I would answer with yes.

But then again i have an odd sense of humor.

That actually had me shoot a little coffee out my nose.

I suppose...that catfolk with feral combat training and claw pounce might work.

They have a wis penalty though, which is kinda painful, obviously.

Oh, and catfolk also have a unique archetype where they turn into tigers and such. 1 hour for 2 ki, so somewhat druid-sih basically. But unchained monks don't really archetype, now do they?

With the new Feral Combat Training Nerf(errata), I don't know if that works.

Honestly, I don't know what works at all with Feral Combat Training anymore.

Page 37 of my 7th Season Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play says:

If the player is playing a non-1st-level pregenerated character, he may choose instead to apply this Chronicle sheet to a 1st-level character by reducing this value to 500 gp (or 250 gp for the slow advancement track).

There is no "newly created" clause.

I would think the latest guide would trump anything in previous guides.

You could tell me the archetypes here, but you will have to PM me the Boons.

We buy the books, so we don't have to.

I totally don't understand why this is an issue.

There are not 3 different errata. All 3 books say the same thing regardless of what is actually printed on the paper.

No, you are thinking of a FAQ, not errata.

Look how they errata'd Master of Many Styles, and Crane Wing.

Those say different things.

You can't have things printed differently, but say the say the same thing.

That's exactly what different printings are.

Hard copies are not exactly cheap either.
