True.

Hand of Apprentice explicitly denies Combat Maneuvers.

Specific versus General.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I have two PCs from Numeria.

One is a Bard, who worships Cixyron.

Anyways, I am wondering if any electricity powered instruments, or thunderstone powered(like the Piston Maul) exist in Golarion?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

The clothes created are real clothes, and act as such.

You don't walk around in the nude, wearing illusionary clothes, and freezing your delicates.

These are not the Emperor's new clothes.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

A Shield is a weapon.

Feats, spells, and abilities that can be used with weapons, can be used with Shields.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Remember, Shocking Grasp is magical electricity.

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

Is the Skald able to use the Perform skill, when under the effects of Raging Song?

Relevant text:

Raging Song wrote:
While under the effects of raging song, allies cannot use any Charisma-, Dexterity-, or Intelligence-based skills (except Acrobatics, Fly, Intimidate, and Ride) or any ability that requires patience or concentration.

You count as your own ally. Perform is a charisma based skill.

So, am I missing something?

Seriously, this should be a thing.

Also, Unicorns. Wrong book though.

Did you mean bard? Because I really also need to know if a Bard and a Skald can sing together and buff eachother?

I mean the Skald.

Who is to say which areas of math and science have progressed in Golarion?

The existence of magic doesn't completely negate the need, or desire, to explore these subjects.

The realm of Golarion is vast, with many lands, planets, and planes of existence, all with varying degrees of societal, and scientific progress, access to magic, and other varied factors.

Even in the less fantastical regions, science and math are studied subjects.

Look, it is mentioned right in the available trait, Numerologist, and many other sources.

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.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I highly doubt that science is completely ignored in places like Numeria, and Alkenstar.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I am so awesomely dextrous, that every time I try to slap myself back into reality, I miss.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

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.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Check out the Science! thread.

Disarm: When you use a disarm weapon, you get a +2 bonus on Combat Maneuver Checks to disarm an enemy.

That'll be sarcasm, not irony...

Easily missed in text communications.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Let's not have this turn into a Rogue love/hate debate thread.

The OP is looking for "Rogue-like" builds, so let's just stick with those.

Not as currently written.

Uh... that's a good guy.

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Basically, the relation between a Shield, and Shield Spikes, is the same as a suit of Armor, and Armor Spikes.

Also, just wanted to note, that Shields provide a Shield Bonus to AC, and not an Armor Bonus.

It is important to remember.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Is there now a class that gets the whole set?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

The pit, or Web, is not a "safe place it can stand in".

So, it's a no go.

You could push them near it, then Bull Rush them next turn.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

It is not a Cleric spell.

So, a Rope Gauntlet cannot be made of any Special Material?

Only special materials that can be used to manufacture rope. (I don't believe there are any.)

Darkleaf Cloth, or possibly Dragonhide.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Anything that adds to attack rolls, adds to CMB.

Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Does the Crystal Chakram actual use any of the rules associated with the normal Chakram, or is it's own completely separate weapon?

Basically, I am asking, is it the difference between a Dagger, and a Switchblade Dagger, or a Dagger, and a Swordbreaker Dagger.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I guess the next question would be then:

Can the Crystal Chakram be used as a melee weapon?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Same here with the Warlock.

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


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I don't understand everyones problem with "dump" stats.

Why do all characters have to be good at everything? Isn't it natural that strength and weaknesses alter from person to person what ever that persons goal is?

A warrior who focuses on fighting has not much use for charisma, he isn't trying to charm anyone. Same with a Wizard who doesn't care that he's physically weak, because he is strong in his mind.

Rolling stats can lead to some people having crazy high luck, or really bad rolls. Point buy ensures that everyone has a equal stat array, people can build what ever they want in a way that makes it effective.

I also don't understand the dislike for min/maxing. having characters that are good at what ever they want to be good at just ensures less PK and more fun all around.

I could not agree more.

As a ranged weapon, surely a Crystal Chakram is inadmissable as a potential Black Blade.

Is not a Crystal Chakram an one-handed slashing weapon?

Is it not a melee weapon, as well as a ranged weapon, like so many thrown weapons, such as the spear, or dagger?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I do like the idea of the roleplay around teaching fellow players sign language.

The only non-verbal language known, created by an evil race, is kind of stupid, but otherwise, the concept seems cool.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I must have the earlier version.

Every item has a material descriptor. A normal longsword is made of steel so it is a [steel] longsword. Same for [mithral] longsword or [adamantine] longsword. Can you create a mithral adamantine longsword? No. Can you create a crystal adamantine chakram? No.

What happens if you choose a Crystal Chakram as your Blackblade?

The item breaks if you hit (100%) or miss (50%). The unbreakable ability dont prevents this because it breaks completly.

Do it but it is a really bad choice.

Come on BBT give us some more 'What happens ..' questions.

There is nothing that make the Crystal Chakram an exception to the rules for special materials. The Tepoztopilli is usually made from Obsidian, Glass, or Teeth, but can still be made of other special materials.

The Crystal Chakram also never notes it instantly gains the destroyed condition upon use. The Unbreakable property should protect it.

It should, at least, be considered.

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

I am incredibly tired of this misconception.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I, too, hate the DM who demands a low point buy, then picks on anyone with a score 8 or lower.

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.

why bother seeking holes in the rules?

dude you are the GM, you can rule it the way you want.
why you come to ask to us? you can go directly to "ask james jacobs"
two off hands still are off hands, so, you get the 1/2 str bonus. and still consumes a full round action use propperly a doble weapon.

if the books don´t says nothing about something it means a "no" in the rules.

if youre looking for bugs in the game, to imrpove your munchkinism, better go and install X PC game in yours, and cheat it.

"The secret we should never let the gamemasters know is that they don't need any rules".
-Gary Gygax

You have no idea what you are talking about.

You troll the thread with you accusations of "munchkinism", and cheating.

What are you even saying?

Do you even have a stance?

Goodness, I don't know I missed that it wasn't Cleric specific.

Thank you for the quick response.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Does this FAQ apply to Inquisitors?

To put it simply, do Inquisitors of Irori and Korada receive Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

The Sea-knife and Barbazu Beard explicitly state they can used as an off-hand attack whilst using a two-handed weapon.

They are not noted as an exception to the rules, but is possible because they don't require a hand.

The FAQ really appears to suggest that Armor Spikes require a hand, and that you cannot two-weapon fight with a two handed weapon, along with any other weapon that requires a hand to use.

This is part about explicitly denying any kind attack, along with a two-handed weapon attack, is just not present in the FAQ.

In that area of vagueness, one must look to the written rules, to figure out how to rule.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

How would you handle the Dwarven Boulder Helmet, Boot Blade, Sea Knife, Barbazu Beard, Kobold Tail Attachments, and Ratfolk Tailblade?
