The "Kirthfinder" rules account for simple, martial, and exotic proficiency in all weapons. That means that a fighter wields a light mace better than a cleric. I've introduced these rules to my campaign and the fighty-guys love it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Oh wow thanks :D

I've been reading through it for the last week. Very impressive.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Just curious. Is there a psionics character sheet?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Don't forget the -2 penalty for firing the xbow one handed.

I think it is nice as a GM in case I want to add a PrC to a monster.

Can you link to that ruling? I was not aware of any such FAQ or errata.

Here is James Jacob's response. It is listed as "no response required" as far as needing a FAQ.

I enjoying reading them even though I probably won't run most of them. You might want to check out if any of them are still on sale. I think some may be ten bucks still. That is a lot of money saved if you decide you don't like it as much as you imagined.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

You could just take the riding dog, strip it of it's racial hit dice, and go from there. For stats, just use a floating modifier and buy/roll normally.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

For the period of time he was amped up with super-powers, he was actually being possessed by a higher level ghost/demon/ericcartman and now it has left his body/been exercised/whatever. All those powers are now gone and there is another BBEG out there to worry about.

Yeah, but Nethys seems more "every alignment" than "(true) neutral"

That could be as much an expression of neutrality 'game mechanics' as complete apathy towards any extreme.

Werthead,

Any chance you'd take a look at Darkwar (also by Cook)? I'd be interested in your take on it.

It's worth a read. I won't go into a full on review like Werthead here, and it was been a couple of years since I've read it., but it is as good as most any other Cook book. And much better than the final volumes of the Dread Empire series.

I think the Monk level can be worth it 100%, but only for a few specific cases. Sohei 1/ Tattooed Sorcerer 1/ Eldritch Knight 10/ Bloodmage 8 should be competitive with Sorcerer 20. Monk 1/ Wildblooded Sorcerer (Empyreal) 19 should also be competitive with Sorcerer 20. I also think playing a Human with Focused Study and taking the Eldritch Heritage line over and over and grabbing spells known FCB is a good idea, so is a Half-Elf with Paragon Surge instead of 2 extra Skill Focus feats.

A two level dip into Sensei monk from the Empyreal sorcerer would be well worth it imho to get wisdom to attack. I am doing something similar and it has worked out pretty good.

eakratz: I am claiming that it works as written. Thats what RAW is. Rules As Written. I understand what you are claiming but there is nothing in RAW that supports your claim. It doesn't say that, "...by increasing the effective character level to beyond the maximum level of the character, invalidates the feat." That is your opinion, but it is not RAW. In other words, that is not what the rules state.

I am aware what RAW stands for. You seem to think that there is only one way to read RAW and that is the way YOU read it. Apparently, based on the fact that you are trying to argue with three people on it, that your interpretation of what is RAW might not be correct. It might be, sometimes RAW is ambiguous, but I doubt it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

You are claiming RAW, but what I am seeing is your opinion on the matter. Others have also already pointed out how we are reading RAW in this very thread. Yes, I am suggesting that the robe, by increasing the effective character level to beyond the maximum level of the character, invalidates the feat. If another GM interprets RAW as to what you are saying, that's cool too.

It has nothing to do with order. All of the effects happen regardless of order.

Boon companion raises to character level. The robes increase it beyond character level. It isn't a stacking issue, they do different things.

Or

The robes increase it beyond the character level, and the feat does nothing.

Feat: Boon Companion

Your bond with your animal companion or familiar is unusually close.
Prerequisites: Animal companion or familiar class feature.
Benefit: The abilities of your animal companion or familiar are calculated as though your class were 4 levels higher, to a maximum effective druid level equal to your character level. If you have more than one animal companion or familiar, choose one to receive this benefit. If you lose or dismiss an animal companion or familiar that has received this benefit, you may apply this feat to the replacement creature.

The bolded section would prevent the Boon Companion feat from pushing it above your level, but it looks like the robe would, so it looks to me like your companion would be 1 level higher.

Another one that bugged me-

Empire by Orson Scott Card

It was recommended by a friend, so I read it. I was pleasantly surprised at first. Then by about a third of the way in, Card completely loses his mind.

The villains are hippies in mechs who decide to overthrow the US government. I'm not even joking. Card used Left Wing political activists in giant anime robots as his villains.

I'm pretty sure he didn't intend for the book to be a comedy, but it was.

Hahaha I read that too, and pretty much had the same feelings. I bet in Cards mind it all is perfectly logical.

I just received my "non-mint" copy, and it is in IMMACULATE condition. There is a teensie-tiny dent in the dover (about the size of a pen tip) that I had to hold the book up in direct light to even see.

This book is 1) enormous, 2) fantastic.

If you're on the fence about picking up the hardcover copy, get off the fence and get one. I cannot say enough good things about it.

+1

My non-mint just came in the mail and while I have not had time to do more than briefly look through it, it looks fantastic! One of the corners is dented in a way that looks like the box it was originally shipped in was crushed. If I were expecting a mint condition copy, this might irk me, but I was picking up a "scrath'n'dent" so I am excited about how great it looks. My cat loves it too.

Bottom line, well worth the $30 dollar discount.

You could ask your GM to use the bards spells known table and switch your casting stat to charisma.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

You may post a question in the Rules Forum.

You can also just say no, that is too powerful.

A post of the players build might help with planning something.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

The pdfs are pretty cheap. When preparing for a session, I'll print off the pages needed from the "Lite" pdfs to have on hand. This way I can write directly on the monsters stats game effects and hit point loss.

I use the favorite function as my way of saving posts I want to keep a list of.

I had a character with an imp for a cohort. It didn't end too well for him. It was Livia from The Sixfold Trial if anyone cares. Since imps are a bit weaker we gave her a few levels of Magician Bard. My character signed a contract for terms of service, and when he died his soul went into her body. Now she is an imp bard with the giant template. She is still with the party as a GMPC and still a lot of fun.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

One of my players has an extremely flavorful, fun, and contributing fighter in and out of combat who has an 8 in Int and Cha.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

In addition, you can qualify for the power attack feat tree. Bull rush can easily be utilized in a fencing style fighter. Dazing assault too.

Herero male here. Age 39.

In my active game I am playing a bisexual human seeker sage sorcerer/ sensei monk flavored as a cat burglar. He is an attractive Cheliaxan noble who used to be quite the ladies man, but is going through a depression lately due to his involvement in the deaths of three cohorts.

In PFS I have a female inquisitor of Cayden Caileen. She isn't particularly attractive and she sneered at a paladin who tried to hit on her. She is probably hetero.

My other PFS character is a female dwarf wizard. I have her with flaming red hair and she is quite beautiful. No romances have come up so far but she is hetero.

I just retired a half elf ranger who is pretty good looking, straight, and was pursuing a relationship with a Tian spy when he was clobbered to death then brought back as a gnome. Now he is a very attractive gnome.

In a game a while back I was playing a half elf swashbuckler who was a widower. He was very attractive and charismatic and loved the ladies.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Yes. I was taken by surprise just the other day when I ordered something, was expecting to be able to chose to have it ship with my subscription, and then suddenly it saying I've ordered and checked out and its on its way for $10 shipping. Luckily, it is the Ultimate Psionics book and I am excited to have it come early, but I did considered emailing customer service to try and get the order delivery changed.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Instead of an AP compilation, what might be cool is a large soft-cover Falcon's Hollow compilation of the five (I believe) adventures with some added content filling in the level gap between Crown and Revenge of the Kobold King.

Magic missile has a spell duration of instantaneous, so they do all leave your hand simultaneously.

All of the salient quotes have been covered, so I will just +1. Wha waa waa waa!

"He's open from eleven to six in the morning, catering to every sentient species there is, all so warped they try to subsist on vegetables."

Old Tin Sorrows out of the Garrett Takes the Case omnibus by Glen Cook.

Snoring next to me on the couch right now is Lilly a 60 pound lab mix, black with a white chest and paws, that we rescued two years ago. She had mange, bacterial and fungal infections on her skin and was half bald and red with inflammation. Now she is active, happy, and incredibly smart. One of her favorite activities is to pull me on rollerblades. She can cover 2 miles in just over 8 minutes and I weight 190 lbs.

We also have two black and white (tuxedo) cats named Harry and Weasley. Yes, named after the famous ones. One rescued and one is a stray. Weasley loves Lilly and head boops her whenever he can.

We also foster kittens so at any given time we might have a litter upstairs.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Yep. Also Oleg and Svetlana in Kingmaker.

By level three I can't see it being much of an advantage.

+2 on a series that started off so good, then just seemed to spiral the drain at book five.

Another series that has disappointed me is "The Books of Malazan." Everything I've researched about it screams that I should love it, but I just can't get into them. I had to give the first book two tries to get through it. I have read that the second one is much better but reading the character's dialogue is almost painful to me. It is now sitting under my bed with a bookmark in about page 100. What makes this ironic is that Steven Erickson gets glowing reviews from my favorite author, which is Glen Cook.

Sometimes, things have to be ruled in a way to increase humor. So yeah, I think if a character had been healed with Infernal Healing and there happened to be a paladin around I would totally have him start smiting for the LOLz then wait for the "oh $(@/" moment when the duration expires. At my table we would all get a good laugh about it.

Full BAB classes provoking attacks of opportunity from attacking with unarmed strikes. You are proficient with nearly every weapon in the game, but when you try and use your own fists you get beat on first?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Aiding another while fighting defensively is not a bad option. Especially if you have 3 ranks in acrobatics for the extra AC bump.

Also, fighting mooks is fun to do.

If you check out the previous time they listed their "running low" products Going Going Gone Fall 2013 Edition you'll notice that there are still quite a bit on both lists. I didn't go through and count them but their are many of the same items on both lists. Some have moved "down" and a couple have disappeared. To me, this looks like there really isn't a lot of demand for the older stuff when it comes down to it.
