So, a Paladin can't Smite a Succubus in Human Form?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Actually, no. Beastshape is a Polymorph spell.

You can't quote the Polymorph subschool rules, then say it only applies to spells with Polymorph in the title, and not spells of the Polymorph subschool.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

The exception being the "object or creature" part.

Grand Lodge

You are not even willing to consider that it could be read differently?

Serpent-fire Adept Monk archetype from Occult Origins retains Ki, and receives the Chakra Initiate and Psychic Sensitivity feats for free at first level.

Italians.

First time playing 5E, and hoping to go with a fun concept for me.

Basically: Human, Barbarian, Sword and Shield.

I really don't know how to effectively build a PC yet, so I was wondering if anyone can give me any advice.

Grand Lodge

Around 100$.

Store and read PDFs. Yeah, that's about it.

If not a lot of storage space, then a slot for USB or SD/Micro SD to have additional storage.

"It doesn't say I don't" Is all you have given.

You have nothing explicit that states you change type.

You don't even have proof that spells can give you more than they say they do.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Also, changing into an animal doesn't lower your intelligence.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Trust me buddy, Plant Shape I, does not make you immune to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, morale effects, patterns, and phantasms), paralysis, poison, polymorph, sleep, and stun.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

This is pretty common knowledge, and you are just kind of misreading here.

They went out of their way to remove all the type changing aspects of polymorph spells.

It was even mentioned why they got rid of it in Alpha and Beta Playtest.

I agree the political commentary was u n warranted, but commenting on somethings legality in PFS isn't the right forum? Whaaaa?
He's not questioning its legality, though. He's questioning the mechanics behind a legal option.
He's asking if it should replace something else.
That's a mechanics question, though, not a PFS question. There's nothing PFS specific about his question.

That's exactly what I said.

Well, you will get Dex to damage with your focus weapon with Fencing Grace, and won't have to deal with the mass of restrictions Slashing Grace shoves down your throat.

So, you can two-weapon fight, flurry, use a shield, or use spell combat.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Unless a spell says it changes your type, it doesn't change your type.

The list you quoted is just a list of available forms.

You only gain what the spell says you gain.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Yeah.

Your type don't change. You still count as you original type for all feats, spells, and effects.

Power Attack is pretty substantial.

It's weird, but I like the Naginata and Hooked Lance.

The x4 critical is fun.

Grand Lodge

What race are you going for?

That can open up options.

Well, for some, anything new or different is "power creep", which is code for "I don't like change".

Grand Lodge

1E and 2E didn't have ways of adding extra options, without houserules.

Everything was restricted as hell.

Some people can't get past this "Different is bad. Change is bad." thing.

That's is fine. Play the same old stuff for as long as you want. Have fun with it.

Is it really just this one guy who is up in arms?

If so, the group shouldn't have to make massive changes, just to please one guy.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

You basically throw out a ton of feats, if "adding new options" is the only thing feats should do.

From Iron Will, to Precise Shot, you are just adding numbers.

The massive list that would be excluded is phenomenal.

Even in 5E.

... Anyway, that doesn't really matter for this thread.

Let's just talk about "damage types" as the OP is referring to them: in the sense that they include cold, fire, sonic, and whatnot.

Can anyone think of any others?

How is it irrelevant?

Talking about damage types, in a thread about damage types, is irrelevant?

Grand Lodge

Reign basically takes you throughout time, and alternate universes, in Baba Yaga's Hut, which in a number of ways, is like the Tardis.

Since you are all over the place, you are pretty much exotic foreigners wherever you go, so unusual races don't detract anything.

I am not really sure how to exactly explain what makes RotRL dark, except that it can deal with some very adult themes. Rape, torture, incest, dismemberment and others. Not everyone's cup of tea.

I am looking for a really basic, cheap tablet, to display PDFs.

I play a lot of PFS, and carrying around tons of books, or printed sheets, is a huge hassle.

Still, got a rather limited budget.

Any suggestions?

Grand Lodge

You mean the Slipslinger Style feats?

Alchemical Sling Bullets exist, and make the later feats kinda pointless.

You are much better off with things like Clustered Shots.

Well, aren't we clever.

I suspect you know what I really mean.

Grand Lodge

What Sling feat chain involves Throw Anything and Quickdraw?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

So, you give away the choice of Deadly Aim, or Power Attack, as a free bonus feat at first level.

Simple.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Like how feats increase DCs and damage of spells?

Wait, chemical-free body soap? How does that work? Is it made out of Dark Matter? Because Dark Matter doesn't seem to clump in regions dense and small enough to make a bar of soap....

Rendered fat, Lye, water, and natural fragrances. That is the basic ingredients of soap for thousands of years.

I would just have a Spiked Gauntlet, and use the ability to draw a weapon as part of a move action with the Shortsword.

You need those extra feats.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Combine automatic bonus progression, with a higher point buy, and maybe a bonus starting feat, and you should be alright.

Grand Lodge

Reign does free of the mass resource management of Kingmaker.

It might be a nice change of pace.

What are your usual race restrictions?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Whoah man!

I thought none of those are damage types. All untyped.

B/P/S are the only damage types that exist.

Grand Lodge

Warslinger only works with the basic sling.

Quickdraw can just be replaced with a Spring-loaded Wrist Sheathe.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

So, what if your concept involves being able to do a lot of damage?

Should you just ban feats that add more damage?

Should they just be given out for free?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Without Instant Enemy, you may want to consider stacking something that trades out Favored Enemy.

Not sure why you need Quickdraw.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I like Reign of Winter.

It makes additional races actually work out. It also has it's sort of built-in solution to the magic item shop.

Rise of the Runelords is pretty awesome too. Very dark.

How would you describe your group's playing style?

Grand Lodge

Seriously, how are you supposed to balance all feats against each other?

You have a feat that makes you totally awesome at singing and being diplomatic, but is never going to balance against a feat that makes you deal more damage in combat.

You have a concept for PC that is a master thief, and you spend resources to do that, it shouldn't automatically make you better at splitting skulls.

Hell, I don't see how this pulls away from character defining. "Micky here ain't exactly the best in a fight, but that silver tongue of his usually keeps us outta trouble."

Bam! Character depth, supported by mechanics.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Books used.

Sorry about the lingo.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Of course, all archetypes that trade out casting should be an option.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

If it just says "weapon", and not "manufactured weapon", it should be fine.

If a spell has explicit text referring to it's function on unarmed strikes, you follow appropriately.

I am still not happy about this thread seemingly targeting VC/VLs directly, and giving the perception that it is more prevalent among them specifically.

Grand Lodge

Shampoo damages hair. You can clean your hair without it.

For body soaps, chemical light, or chemical free, actually help keep the odor down better, as there is less damage to the skin, and scours less of the naturally secreted oils that protect your skin.

Breathable clothing is a big part of keeping odor down. Staying cool helps a lot.

What you eat and drink can have an effect as well.

Certain foods, and things like alcohol effect body odor.

Grand Lodge

1st, 2nd, and 5E all have a sort of set package for you, but there is very little customization.

A lot of concepts are just not possible.

So, you end up getting all there is, right away, but that's it. Nothing new, or interesting as you level. Just the same limited stuff, but you are a little better at it. You need to be a caster to have anything like that, and that is still just a bit more of the same.

Sometimes the choices are hard in Pathfinder, but the player complaining they dosn't have all the things for his master scholar archer, who rides a griffon and can turn into a tiger right away, is sort of being a baby.

This system doesn't hand you all the stuff, right away.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

You have resource lists for your PFS PCs?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Silly me.
