I think this new format will work very nicely for my group. We have 3 rotating GMs, and longer modules will hopefully serve as longer-running story arcs that do not require as strong a commitment as a full AP, for example. But I'll definitely reserve a final opinion until I get a chance to see one.
Thanks for the tip, Abraham, I'll look at the shields to see if I can find it.
Haladir - it duplicated the manticore's tail spikes ability:
Spikes (Ex) With a snap of its tail, a manticore can loose a volley of four spikes as a standard action (make an attack roll for each spike). This attack has a range of 180 feet with no range increment. All targets must be within 30 feet of each other. The creature can launch only 24 spikes in any 24-hour period.
(This is of course the new description of the power, back in 2nd ed I think it was only 1d4 spikes per shot, 6 times per day. But I'd like to duplicate the current ability listed above.)
I'm trying to port a really old 2nd ed D&D campaign in PF. One of the players had a magic weapon called a Warstar of the Manticore; essentially a +1 morningstar that duplicated the manticore's tail spikes ability. Is there something similar in any of the PF published books? Or does anyone have any suggestionos on crating/pricing the item? Any help is appreciated.
I don't really have a "mechanical answer" as it were, only a personal opinion regarding the visuals and the effect.
I can, for example, picture clawed hands growing longer claws and slightly enlarged. I have a harder time picturing longer fangs (the mouth wouldn't close properly) or an enlarged jaw. Likewise, I can imagine grabbing/tearing larger chunks of flesh with said enlarged claws, while there's only so much you could stuff in your mouth (that's what she said lol) to take a bite.
Dragon Bite (Ex): At 2nd level, whenever the dragon disciple uses his bloodline to grow claws, he also gains a bite attack. This is a primary natural attack that deals 1d6 points of damage (1d4 if the dragon disciple is Small), plus 1–1/2 times the dragon disciple's Strength modifier. Upon reaching 6th level, this bite also deals 1d6 points of energy damage. The type of damage dealt is determined by the dragon disciple's bloodline.
Huh, for some reason you have two separate identical threads going.
Isn't a combat maneuver performed with an attack roll per RAW?
When you attempt to perform a combat maneuver, make an attack roll and add your CMB in place of your normal attack bonus.
By my interpretation, I would say mirror image applies.
Edit - dang, I'm even slower than a grick.
This should be a feat chain, leading up to a prestige class.
CHEESE N CRACKERS FROG PEOPLE!!!! I just got my RA box (loooooved the little frog btw, tee hee) and I'm STILL in the process of getting the dang book up the stairs (one step a day, that thing is heavy).....
.....<sigh> fine, FINE. I'm in.
Hmm....I'd say, ban the enchantment, and suggest the use of Guided Hand, but I take it you'd rather keep it as a weapon property. Maybe modify it so it duplicates that feat? (This pretty much aligns with what widuj suggested.)
I read about this today, and have already begun hoarding bacon!!

Whenever I see a release date a few months away, I always imagine being able to give modified Star Trek deadlines.....
Picard: Picard to La Forge, bring that warp core online immediately!
La Forge: Captain, it'll take at least 3 weeks to recalibrate the trilithium crystals!
Picard: You have 7 hours, Geordie. Notify me when you're done. Picard out.
So this order was processed, I got my confirmation e-mail, and the pertinent downloads were added to my downloads area...and then the charge disappeared from my card. Did the transaction clear on your end? I iz a little confuzzled! (I did notice that the total amount changed, and I suspect you dropped the original amount and will be charging me for the new one, but I just wanted to make sure.)
