Acid Pits.

It will be great terrain for the Dragon to take advantage of.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Red Hood.

Green Goblin.

The Shocker.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

So, the PFS stuff. Available yet?


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Additional Traits has no such restrictions.

The DM can disallow, but it is completely legit, as far as RAW is concerned.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I thought this was about drunk players.

The gaming store I play PFS at serves craft beers(and ice cream), and on occasion, have seen a player have just a little too much to drink.

I, myself, have ended up playing half a scenario buzzed.

Some of those heavy specialty beers are surprisingly strong.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I just keep all my PDFs on a Flash Drive.

If they want to check, they can just use their laptop/ipad/etc, and look it up.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I still like the "emotionless robot".

It's easier to pull off, RP wise.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Don't forget, you can be an evil Vigilante.

I suppose. Of course, you would have to include Jesse Porter as well then.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Well, he can ask his DM.

Well, with Adopted, you could nab that trait.

So, with the Additional Traits feat, you choose Adopted, and Shoanti Tattoo.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Thanks man.

By the way, variations of Bread Crumbs has been used in three games already.

My favorite, is when he, was a she, and was run with a personality much like Tree Trunks from Adventure Time.

So, if you ever want to make higher level versions, you can be assured it will be used even more often.

Barbarian PC: "I am a monster in battle, and can bend iron bars. I will crush any foe set before me. What skills do harbor friend?"

Oracle PC: "I am an Oracle".

Barbarian PC: "So, you can see the future?"

Oracle PC: "No."

Barbarian PC: "So, you can view behind walls, or miles away, without being there?"

Oracle PC: "No."

Barbarian PC: "Can you tell me my Destiny?"

Oracle PC: "No."

Barbarian PC: "You say you're an Oracle, but you can't see the future, or even anything beyond your line of sight. You can't even tell me my Destiny. You are a terrible Oracle."

Well, this thread certainly derailed.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

For a better ability to master pretty much all swords, I suggest Human, with the Adoptive Parentage alternate Racial Trait(not the Race Trait), and choose Tengu, for their Weapon Familiarity.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Daring Champion is my vote too.

Order of the Flame is good choice.

The Terminator might be a good example.

I am having trouble accessing the main folder for your PCs.

Do you have a link?

Empowered.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I would wait for the Vigilante.

In it's current form, it's very bad.

It has a lot of potential, but it's still in testing now, and really would not work, outside of playtesting.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Michael Westen and Sam Axe are definitely cool Vigilantes.

I would like to see more social talents available whilst in the Social Identity.

It just fits.

The Social Identity shouldn't be just a straight power down, but an adjustment of abilities to empower the Social Identity.

Perhaps some talents, that are only function whilst in the Social Identity.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

The Mask.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Trapper Ranger works too. It stacks with the Guide archetype, if you want something less situational, than Favored Enemy.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

You could flavor the 2 hour rest, like a "Recharge" period.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Naomi Armitage, from Armitage III might work.

By the way, the "Awakened from Stasis" trait is fitting, and beneficial:

People of the Stars wrote:

Awakened from Stasis

Category: Region
Requirement(s): Apostae
Although you were born and lived on Golarion, you recently awakened in a strange vault with no memory of how you got there, surrounded by sleeping creatures of every shape and size in smooth glass eggs, all watched over by uncommunicative crablike automatons. As a side effect of your stasis, you gain all the benefits of 8 hours of sleep in only 2 hours. This allows a spellcaster who must rest to prepare spells to do so after only 2 hours, but does not allow a spellcaster to prepare spells more than once per day.

This allows you to regain rage, after 2 hours rest.

By the way, Savage Technologist is not a valid archetype for the Unchained Barbarian.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I intend to base my Android Barbarian off of the Disney character, 19th Lord of Uranos' Kingdom's Tempest Domain, Drossel Juno Vierzehntes Heizregister Fürstin von Flügel, from the show Fireball.

See here., and here.

Disney Japan, is freaking weird.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

A good example of using a weapon, as a improvised weapon, is here.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Okay, so, it would seem, that currently, I have no archetype combo PCs, that are no longer legal.

From what I caught from Mark and James, seeing as the suggested Rage Powers have no effect on stacking. I figured.

That's a relief.

This FAQ may make some of my previous concepts, no longer available.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Firearms have their own specific rules.

I believe, that a Ranged weapon, is only a Ranged weapon, unless, it can be used in melee.

Then, it must fall into one of the three melee categories, Light, One-handed, Two-handed, as well.

This means, some weapon can fall into multiple categories.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Crap.

Now we have to reconfigure Retrain costs?

Question, who here has the view of "If you're completely happy with how the Vigilante works, don't think anything should change, and feel you need to fight to get everyone to agree with you."?

I'd be amazed if anyone had that perspective.

I don't really do personal attacks, if I can help it. So, even if this, can be applied directly to someone currently, I would loathe to name them.

See this, as more of a preemptive strike.

I just remember there being "that guy" from other playtests.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Goodness.

I will still have to check if this affects any other of my PCs.

Some have multiple archetypes, and hope they are still legal.

Let's see, I have:

1) Divine Tracker, Trapper, Wild Hunter Ranger.

2) Invulnerable Rager, Primal Hunter Barbarian.

3) Breaker, Numerian Liberator Barbarian.

Have things (in general, not talking about individual rules) really changed?

Massively. There are more FAQ in 2014/2015 than the entire run of 3.5 and most of the 3.5 had no authority. They would answer how they would rule but not often how the rules worked. So people demanded Errata or "shut up".

You may think so, but I'm not seeing a significant change. I've got the 3.5 FAQ PDF from 2006 and it's 80 pages long and the vast majority of it is written in as authoritative a style as the PF FAQ. And that's without going into the 3 years of the "Rules of the Game" articles that went up on the WotC site that went into how various sticky parts of the rules worked in considerable depth.

I still have copies of all those.

Some of it is still quite useful. Especially the stuff about Illusions.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

That's exactly what I am saying.

From the Dagger, to the Axe Musket, to the Halfling Sling Staff, some weapons fall into multiple categories.

Just so I get this out of the way:

If you're completely happy with how the Vigilante works, don't think anything should change, and feel you need to fight to get everyone to agree with you, then you should go.

You are not helping.

People are expressing concerns, criticisms, ideas, because they are being asked to.

That is how a Playtest works. Find the bugs. Address concerns. Discuss ways to improve.

That's all.

Now, let's work towards a brighter future!


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Masterwork Bone Weapons have the Fragile Quality.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

I will have to chuck one of PFS PCs completely out, if they don't.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Is the focus the Rider, or the Horse?

If it's the Horse, then take a gander here.

Legal via a grey area. Do you have an example?

Depends on which bloodline, some clash with Seeker (3rd level bloodline power)

Empyreal.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Does Seeker and Wildblooded no longer stack?

While in rage, a barbarian cannot use any Charisma-, Dexterity-, or Intelligence-based skills (except Acrobatics, Fly, Intimidate, and Ride) or any ability that requires patience or concentration.

Pausing to uncork and drink an infusion would to be require some level of patience and pause. I just don't see a raging barbarian stopping to do that when they could instead be hitting stuff with a sword/axe/club/fist/person.

There are Rage Powers, Rage Archetypes etc, based around drinking Potion/Booze/Etc.

Rage is not a temporary retardation of one's mental capabilities.

They can drink whatever they want, be it potion, booze, or extract.

They can even Fight Defensively, take a Total Defense Action, or even Ready an Action.

Hell, they can even ready an action, to drink an extract.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

You have never read the alignment section of the CRB, at all, have you?

Lawyerise and extrapolation, is what it takes to have this FAQ apply to so many situations, in so many different ways.

It also requires references to rules, that are not written.

You know, unwritten rules.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Bloodragers can use Wands at Lvl.1, just not things like Scrolls.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Well, if you want to take the FAQ, as written, without referencing unwritten rules, then all it tells us, is that you need a free hand to attack with Gauntlets, and Armor Spikes.

No hands of effort. No restrictions on other non-hand weapons. No strength to damage caps.

None of that.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

A Dagger is a Ranged weapon too.

You can enchant it with Ranged Weapon Enchantments.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Bloodrager all the way. It works as a decent jump from your usual.

Good damage, fun options.

Going Blood Conduit will give you an alternate, and equally fun build.


Pathfinder Companion Subscriber

Some do fall into multiple categories.

The Sea Knife and the Barbazu Beard are the Exception to the rule. This should tell you something.

Yes. There are no written rules for them to be an exception to.

That would mean, that, the only way they are an exception, is if they are an exception to an unwritten rule.
