Concealment gives a miss chance.

Is that not a variant of "harder to hit"?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Magic and Logic do not pair well.

I have seen the Medium PC with the Large Bastard Sword, Enlarged(or similar effect) and now just have a weapon that meets their size, and not a Huge weapon.

This was in PFS.

Now, if I, or they, are wrong, then I would like to know.

Hell, with the Fabulist feat, you can walk around lying, and regain Grit.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Charisma Based Monk.

Chaotic Good Paladin.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I did.

With Iconics like Amiri, knowing how to price Large Weapons(and other things) made of Special Materials, should be known.

It is a reasonable FAQ candidate.

Think about it.

How much is a Large Adamantine Bastard Sword?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I am surprised you have time to create characters, having to basically rebuild so many, after the mass of errata.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Yup.

My bad.

An item that leaves a creature's possession, whilst under the effects of a Polymorph effect, instantly returns to its normal size. This means that thrown and projectile weapons deal their normal damage.

So, could a medium PC, hold(not wield) a large bow, along with large arrows, use something like Alter Self, to become a small humanoid, thus, having the Bow(and arrows) change to your current size, and when said PC fires the Bow, the arrows return to their original size(large), and deal damage appropriate to that size(large)?

Am I correct in how this functions?

The equipment resize, but maintain is original proportions to your body.

You are medium sized with a large bow. you become small, your equipment is a large bow, so it become the equivalent of a large bow for your new size, i.e. a medium bow.

That is not what it says in the Polymorph rules.

See here.

Breaker Barbarian.

Just use the custom cost, and pay the amount for one, and sell all but one, for %0.

You can't be that lazy.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

There are numerous "FAQs", that are actually errata.

These are known a "Stealth Errata", and there are way too many of them.

Anything not Barbarian, with a D12 HD.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I was talking more like the Animal Companions option of "Instead of taking the listed benefit at 4th or 7th level, you can instead choose to increase the companion's Dexterity and Constitution by 2."

So, like a Druid could keep their Wolf medium size at 7th level, and instead improve their stats differently.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Inner Sea Bestiary has Robots.

You can just look them up on d20pfsrd, as linked above.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Technology Guide.

Pretty much all the futuristic stuff you can want is in material discussing Numeria.

It's the sight of an alien spaceship that crashed a millennia ago.

Robots, Androids, you name it.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Yes.

It is mislabeled, and should be a Combat feat.

FAQ'd.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

That's completely different.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

That's not what Reduce Person says about Thrown weapons.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

My question, is can one not have them advance to a larger size category?

Not everyone wants a Medium Homunculus.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I had hoped they would be "unchained" from the Lawful alignment.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

You can alter that in Hero Lab with little effort.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Reduce Person is not a Polymorph Spell, but I see what you are saying.

Reduce Person would allow a Medium PC, with a Large Thrown weapon, have said weapon change to meet the PC's size, then when thrown, deal damage as a Large Thrown weapon.

Now, the question here, is how it functions with something like Alter Self.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Well, that makes for a neat Adamantine Weapon for my Breaker Barbarian.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Measured Response

Parting Shot

Reckless Aim


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Weapon Versatility

False Opening

Penetrating Strike(requires multiclassing)

Greater Penetrating Strike(requires multiclassing)

Point Blank Master

Ranged Study(requires multiclassing)

Snap Shot(technically legal, but not sure if it works)

Improved Snap Shot(technically legal, but not sure if it works)

Stage Combatant

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Would a Large Adamantine Durable Arrow cost 62gp, or 122gp?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Ah.

So, when I was under the impression that I could buy one Adamantine Durable Arrow, for 61gp, I was correct?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I would hate to be wrong.

Is there support either way?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

A lot of 1, is what I was told.

I believe it's the same with all the Alchemical Arrows, from Elves of Golarion, and the Alchemy Manual.

I don't think one must buy 50 Slow Burn Arrows, when they are a 100gp a piece.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

In what context are we using the word Canon here?

Completely wrong.

That's Take 20.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Garuda-Blooded Aasimar is a solid choice. I would take the Scion of Humanity alternate racial trait, if you went with that.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Not a valid time for Take 10.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

You can just wear Gauntlets with Chakrams.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Merciful Weapon, Bludgeoner, Oils of Touch of Mercy, and I am sure I missed a few others.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Feeling like Calvin Candie from Django Unchained?

No whitecake in the parlor for you?

Look, I know there are a lot different opinions, and that's exactly what I am looking for. Different perspectives.

However...

Let's not go the "Who needs rules? I have houserules!", as that is meaningless, and defeats the purpose of owning rules material.

Also, let's not get into "badwrongfun", or other harmful accusations.
That's pointless, rude, and threadlock bait.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Also, any game is "perfect", with the right houserules.

It's a silly thing to say.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Well, for Cavalier, Daring Champion is pretty nice.

No Mount needed.


1 person marked this as a favorite.
Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Yes.

I believe there are some good nerfs.

Especially, when it comes to PFS.

For me, some just make no sense.

Also, the "don't play PFS", and "just houserule" are valid, but meaningless points.

It is as meaningless as "play something else".

Besides, this about recent trends, odd changes, and vast nerfs in general.

Not a "should I even play this game?" discussion.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Well, the "Blood of X" books didn't have the odd age categories, and supported the actual age categories.

I'm not sure. But The Bastards of Erebus is the first Adventure Path issue that uses the Pathfinder rules.

Ah.

Rise of the Runelords is 3.5, and predates it.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Bloodrager?

How much Wizard, and how much Barbarian?

Well, even things that are a more off build, and not nearly as strong, as the common "strong" builds, get nerfed.

It always seems to get harder to make "outside the box" PCs, without being The Load, after an inevitable nerf comes along.

For some, they must covet their minor effectiveness, for as long as they can, as they know it will eventually be taken all away, or suddenly, none of the mechanics meet the flavor anymore.

"Power Creep" has been usually caster exclusive. They still get nerfed, but it's not that bad a blow.

Anything martial, usually gets nerfed to oblivion, if even feels worth taking, for anything other than a very unique build.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

My old copy of Rise of the Runelords says 2007, and my old copy of Council of Thieves says 2009.

What did I miss?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Well, that's more 3.5, but that had Human aged Tieflings as well.

I hate the "abuse" and "loophole" line.

That's stupid.

The player builds a PC, using the well established rules, that are not unclear, or use unique combinations, that might confuse some, and suddenly, they are demonized when some sudden, unexpected changed comes?

That's flat out horrible.

To even attack a player like that, is unacceptable.

Organized Play should never be that hostile to it's own community.

I truly hope those who dare commit such acts, realize, and be ashamed.

Such hostility is unwelcome here.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Yup.

The ARG completely bashed Golarion Canon with those misaligned ages.

Hell, there is a very iconic Aasimar, in the very first real Adventure Path for Pathfinder, that would make no sense, with those age categories.

Not even the basic non-Golarion Race flavor text makes sense with them.
