I haven't seen / got Legacy of Dragons; good?
Yeah, not too bad. Lots of info on adding Dragon related perks to your character.They finally did Sorcerer Bloodline powers for all of the other Dragons besides Metallic and Chromatic (I've been wanting this for the Umbral Dragon for forever).
Gave some Archetypes for having a Drake Animal Companion.
New Draconic Familiar options.
Enhancements for the Wyvaran.
I have to be selective about the books I get these days because of lack of cashola, but this was one that I have been looking forward to.

Have you looked at the Drakerider archetype from Legacy of Dragons?
Yeah, that's what I was going for, the Occult Adventures Classes.
The 3PP stuff from Dreamscarred is basically just the old D&D 3.5 Psionics, but updated to Pathfinder rules.
I'm gonna have to have a good think about what I'd like to play.
I only ask, 'cause I tend to play character builds that are a little out of the box (and subsequently can be a bit underpowered). But I don't want to play something like that if say, there's only gonna be 4 of us and we need to cover all bases, or it's going to leave the group lacking in areas and a detriment to play. In that case I'd just play something more vanilla.

Yeah, that was awesome. I favourited you post Pat, just for that reference. :)
First of all: Greetings one and all and thanks Mothy for including me in your game. :)
Second: If anybody wants a template for statting up their character, I have a Word .doc with my PbP template in it.
Third: Dementrius (and Mothy), I created a Magus Archetype for a 3PP Kickstarter Campaign book that never saw the light of day. It is called the Gun Magus (super inventive title, I know). If either of you would like to take a gander and see if you'd like/allow it, I'd also be happy to let you use it (as long as you don't share it around).
Nice! lol... I've only seen kids movies recently. Suicide Squad was the last "adult" one one I saw. I wouldn't mind seeing the new Dan Brown one, Inferno. Finding time, spare cash and someone to go with is the problem.
It finally appeared today. So that's a month after the US release (I was mistaken before when I said it had been over a month, I realised it after the allotted editing time frame has passed).
Is that normal? I'd still appreciate that follow up about the release dates if it's not too much trouble James.
I'm enjoying it, glad I've got Flash to interact with, though kinda hoping we might be able to meet up with some of the others too (I'm sure that will come and am in no particular hurry).
Same here. It's always good to play with new people, but especially good to play with friends. :)

Yep, all of the other books are showing up without issue.
I did have a problem a few months ago with another PFTales book showing up a few weeks after the actual book released as well. I'm not sure if other regions got that book earlier than I could access it though. The other audiobooks, I've been in the middle of "reading" other books when they released, and didn't get them straight away when the Dead Tree became available, so I'm not sure if it's an isolated or ongoing problem, as I only have a small sample set to work with, sorry.
I have a question regarding the Audiobooks on Audible.
I know that some people (in the US) are already listening to their copies, and they have told me that the release date for it said the 15th of August. I went searching for it yesterday to use my monthly Credit on it, but I can't find it anywhere (in the AU Audible Store).
Are there different regional release dates for the Audiobooks, and if so, why?

The niftiest item in the hoard is probably the cloak of the yeti. Constant endure elements in cold weather, +1 natural armor bonus, +2 on intimidate checks with the hood drawn up. Gaelin could use it, but so could virtually anybody else in the party, and I don't want to be greedy.
It is a nifty item. While Ecaterina would certainly benefit from the +1 Natural Armour, she already has Endure Elements (Cold) permanently active, so I feel it's a waste and should go to someone else.
Unseen Servant is the only spell on my spell list (and I apparently can't copy spells from a Spellbook), so that's the only scroll I can use.

Yes, I had a chuckle at that as well. :)

Cool, thanks. I can Detect magic on anything that needs it and depending on how long we are in town for, I can also Identify anything that needs it. Depending on what the others are after, I would be happy with either of the Daggers. I don't think I can use the Spellbook, and depending on what of the items are magical (if any) she possibly might be interested. Also, is there anything on the parchment in the leather portfolio, or is it blank? She might be interested in that as well to store her paper in depending on whether it would be better than a scroll case.
Not asking for handouts or special considerations, but I'm just double checking that Ecaterina didn't end up with anything fancy from the adventures; money, items, etc... I doubt she would have since she was a bot for the majority of time so far, but I'm updating my sheet and just wanted to make sure there's nothing I need to add.

If I wanted to play a min-maxed fighter build then I wouldn't be choosing a Halfling. I'm playing the race and class because I want to make a character who has to overcome certain obstacles and learn to be more creative about how to achieve victory. He doesn't do things as well as other fighters but he has his own advantages. He doesn't move as quickly but its hard argue his proficiency at holding off a hoard of enemies in a narrow tunnel. He doesn't hit as hard but he has enough charisma to utilize some successful intimidate or diplomacy rolls to possibly shift the course of battle. I've never said a Halfling Fighter is as good as a human fighter in terms of...
If people are going to complain about me not min-maxing a set of stats and instead building a "Character" to "Roleplay", then those aren't the kind of people that I want to game with. I play Characters, not uber maximised walking stat blocks. Yes, of course I try to optimise where I can, but that is a secondary consideration. I play Pathfinder (or almost any other RPG) to Play a Role, not to Fill a Hole.
I've played small melee before and loved it. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't do something you want to do purely because it's not an "acceptable" use of that character/class/race. If you want to do it, and it's within the rules, then you play exactly what you want to play.
Gives me a chance to play a cleric - which I do too rarely - rather than my fall back position of arcane caster.
I've tried playing Healers in MMOs and failed miserably. I can never heal people on time, as I'm usually too focused on killing things. :(
And then there was that one time in a Pen and Paper game that I tried to stabilise a party member and failed 4 heal checks in a row (I wasn't playing a healer, I was playing a TANK. After he died, I realised that I could have simply poured a healing potion down his unconscious throat and all would have been good... :/
I've heard of them - did they have some relation to Pearl Jam? But not familiar with them.
Yeah, they're basically the band members of Pearl Jam with Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) on vocals. They only had one album, but with that talent you know they're good before you even hear them play.
The Skar has the same stats as a short sword. It's kind of a ritualistic large knife in their society.
My Homebrew setting is primarily an aerial setting. The ruling classes of the 4 continents are all airborne races, and the ground based races are all subservient to them. One of the continents is ruled by winged Elves (I had originally called them Avariel, since at the time of my writing, I was basing the world heavily off aspects of the Forgotten Realms, but I am probably going to revise that name now). This society was split into two cultures, the Avariel of the lowlands and forests, and the Dusk Avariel of the mountains. Avariel had Elves as their primary servitor race, and Dusk Avariel had Drow as theirs.
Toying around with my character background and wanted to have my character come from my own Homebrew setting, so I dug out my old setting material and had a fiddle with some of the old racial stats I had done (I made everything waaaaay pre-Advanced Race Guide).
So I've come up with this, based off the Drow, which fits in with the setting much better than straight Drow does.
Feel free to pick it apart and veto if you wish, but Pat said I have to get your OK to play it. :)

DWARVES RULE! *Chugs a pint of mead*
lol... You'll be happy to note that I am still tossing up whether or not to take Ancestral Grudge as an alternate trait. ;)

I like to play a Cleric that can be in the middle of the fight so she can do more than just healing.
Have you considered a Warpriest?
Orla Pentastone wrote:
Nah, don't change you race just for that. I agree with CH, either leave it as is, or get it to 13. If you want your character to be a Dwarf, then make her a Dwarf. Don't sacrifice story and character for stats and numbers. When creating a character, I always look at story first, stats second. Doesn't mean I still don't try and optimise as much as I can, but I play a lot of slightly sub-par character concepts because of it and it doesn't bother me at all.
