As for Nyambe I had totally forgotten about those books but are they trying to be historically accurate for things like armor or more mechanically beneficial? It's been a long time since I've perused that and with 3rd party I know it can be hit or miss.
They do try and be accurate. Even so far as giving characters a Feat that increases their AC because of the lack of high AC protection available.
You could pick this up. It's very cheap and if you're looking at doing an African Setting it's an excellent resource.
Also, if you can find a copy somewhere, this issue of Dragon Magazine has an excellent article on African weapons and armour. It was one of my favourite Dragon articles back when I was playing 2e. :)
Alrighty, I know taig's been nice enough to link theses for me in the past but I thought I'd throw this one down since it's the last in my Shield Wall series.
And if you click on the linky at the bottom that says Sunderday (in purple) then you can see all of my other posts to date.
So tired up late. Thought I saw someone going through one of my in-laws cars when their sensor light went off last night. So went out to have a loom and spent the next half hour checking everything. Then went back inside and the sensor light went off again. So I was up and down all night everytime the sensor light went off... :/
Mike's work is truly amazing! I eagerly await Fridays as I am always keen to see what monstrous creation he has made out of the random pics we throw at him (and as one who has thrown more than my fair share his way I am super interested to see how his vision take my mundane thoughts for the pic and transforms them into the perfection I've come to expect from him. :D
But of course you're quite welcome to stay for the regular blog as well. Mairkurion's occasional insights are worth the wait. :)
Thanks Orthos: :)
And I should thank taig for pimping my shields here. I have been remiss in my attendance of FAWTL for a while now but I should really be plugging my work more. :)
That's weird. My post appeared in the Gameplay Thread when I wrote it in the Discussion Thread???
Is the door very sturdy? Nyxalia could conceivably cast Awesome Blow and try to punch the door open? I know that's not how the spell works, but I can't see why a blow that would knock someone 10' back wouldn't be able to bash a door down.
EDIT: Never mind, she finally got it. :)
I'm only concerned with the weight, for those of us that live overseas. Still, it looks so awesome... and I do have that space on my shelf where it could go...
Postage actually wasn't too bad. I bought this, and a bottle opener (and a sticker but I don't think that really counted for weight purposes...) and was charged $12.59, a lot less than I was expecting (although in saying that, the postage was half the cost of the products ordered). :)
Cool, thanks. :)
I had never actually looked at this Mystery, it looks pretty sweet. :)

Yeah, it's one of those tricky corner case situations when it could easily go either way. I'm not entirely sure how I'd rule it, although like you I'd probably end up erring on the side of the PCs.
I ended up making an Ifrit Barbarian/Oracle of Flame/Battle Prophet. With Boots of Striding and Springing she has a Base speed of 60'. So Your Merfolk could add 20' to its movement no problem with a 2 level dip, (Barb 1/OoF 1), unless you wanted to actually play either of those classes.GM: "So how are you going to wear those boots?"
Well I was just saying that my character has them, but even without them a 2 level dip will net you +20' base movement.You could also change them to some other form of attire, a tail brqacelet or some such. The Core Ruelbook also allows for items to be swapped to another slot without cost if the GM allows it as well.
Not really my character doing anything for fun, but I had a character (an Azerblood Fighter) once named Jock McStrap. He was a serious character though, just had a strange name...
Also, my Magi generally use Arcane Mark when they run out of other spells. It's fun to see all of the dead bodies with my Magi's signature emblazoned on them. :)
Is Piranha Strike PFS Legal? If so then it would be a decent choice to try and up the damage potential of a DEX Based Whip Magus.
I was looking to build a Tiefling Whip Magus/Rogue (not for PFS, for our Pen & Paper game) but found it Feat intensive as has already been stated. Funny thing is, I didn't even think about using the Kensai to augment the Feats, but then went ahead and built a Wakizashi Kensai instead. No one ever accused me of being the sharpest eraser in the pencil case...
Funnily enough, I didn't have to buy $400 worth of randomised minis to get my Dragon, although if I had of had the money I most certainly would of because I also want so many of the minis from this set (Elementals I'm looking at you...).I got mine from my FLGS for $55 (which works out to be about the same as if I'd bought the $40 version from Paizo + postage) and you've said that you can find them online for much cheaper than even the $40 price point. And I live in Australia, which means the package had to travel halfway around the world, go through customs and get delivered to my FLGS in a non-capital city but surprise, surprise, my Cadrilkasta wasn't damaged in the slightest. It's very naive of you to expect that there would be no damaged products in a production run as large as this and even if the total damages runs to 1% of all the minis in the set that's still a small number which Wizkids will gladly replace for you.
So like most other people, I don't see the point of your ire in this particular instance...
Yeah, I should probably tell you that my old Hard Drive went kaput. :(
Not happy as I lost a lot of stuff that I hadn't backed up, since the last time I backed up was months ago. My own fault really... :/
Which means that I have to re-make Onyx. I can remember a lot of her stuff, but I'm gonna have to retype everything back up again which is a time consuming pain in the ass... Sorry and I hope your job hunting gose well T.
I was just checking in to make sure that the 2 PF Comics in my sidecart get added to my current pending Subscription Order. When I went through Checkout, there was no option to add them to a current pending order, only to add them to the sidecart to ship with the next subscription shipment.
As a side note. For some reason the comics are always coming up with weird shipping when you order them. Things like splitting them into separate orders (ie. I ordered 2 comics as part of the same order, but it automatically split them into 2 separate shipments with no option to combine them). It's been doing this for a while now and I only ever seem to have issues with comics acting wonky.
OK, I have a slight problem... My computer seems so have spat the dummy and refuses to boot up for me (I am pretty sure it's the Hard Drive, it's been acting all wonky for a few weeks now). This poses an issue for this game as the only copy of my character is on my PC as I had yet to copy it over to Paizo before this happened (I was actually turning my computer on whwn it died so I could do just that). It means I will have to buy a new Hard Drive and reinstall everything and copy all my files over from the old drive. I don't get paid until Friday and I'm not sure how long it will take me to get my PC back up to speed, so I can do one of two things: pull out for the interim until I can get my computer back up, probably (hopefully) by next week or play with what I can remember and hope we don't have any major combat in the next couple if weeks.
P.S. I am going to keep trying to boot up my PC in the mean time. Hopefully I can at least get it running for long enough to save the character but I'm not holding my breath. :(
Freezing Spells is the one that stood out to me when I read it yesterday.
This discussion is semi-pertinent at the moment too because my PC in our Pen & Paper just died and I'm considering making a Changeling Silver Draconic Sorcerer who specialises in cold magic. Now I'm wondering if Winter Oracle might be a good choice instead.
