Gauntlets of the Weaponmaster
Price 110,000 gp; Aura strong conjuration; CL 10th; Weight 5 lbs.
These gauntlets come in a variety of forms. Some are mostly leather with small steel plates, and are suited for fine swordplay. Others are fully articulated plate favored by knights in full plate. On command, the wearer of the gauntlet can store a single weapon he is holding in the gauntlets. When he does so, a graven image of the weapon appears on the gauntlet's plates. The wearer can store up to 10 weapons in the gauntlets in this manner. Retrieving a weapon requires the wearer to touch the image of the weapon he wants. Doing so is a swift action. When a weapon is retrieved, it appears in the hands of the wearer and any weapons the wearer had in his hands is stored in the gauntlets. If there is no room in the gauntlet for the weapons the wearer is holding, those weapons are dropped. The gauntlets can only store weapons; other items cannot be placed in the gauntlet.

Furthermore, three times per day on command, the gloves affect the wearer as the greater heroism spell.

CONSTRUCTION REQUIREMENTS
Cost 55,000 gp
Craft Wondrous Item, heroism, rope trick


Fortunately I never said I wanted you to be impressed or intimidated...how does one intimidate someone without a physical body to intimidate with? The world shall never know.

I'm saying that a lot of people (GMs mostly) have this idea that players should be happy with whatever they allow them to find whether or not if that thing is actually useful for that character.

If you made a fighter whose father was also a fighter (they had a long line of fighter all the way back to his great great great..etc grandfather) who taught him how to fight perfectly with a greatsword wouldn't your feats be related to said weapon? Me personally I'm thinking probably but I could be crazy. I've also never had a character made obsolete by not having a specific item or a certain feat but it does make it easier on occasion.


So it's not playing if you've plotted your characters feats and abilities? What have I been doig all these years!!! I thought I was playin pathfinder!! I've been doing it BADWRONGNOFUN this whole time!!!

Thank you for letting me know I must roll the d20 of feat selection I guess if my fighter gets spell focus I'd better just roll with it.

Edit:

I'm suddenly reminded of another thread about giving players what they want...where I read someone saying if their player wanted a greatsword with certain stuff they'd give them something they could use and then mentioned a scythe...yep my trained soldier will put away is sword for a farming tool that totally makes sense...


Pun-ishment 2: Revenge of the Puns


How many arms do you have?


Congrats now I have more reasons to buy paizo products.


So I get cut by a sword/ stabbed by a spear/shot by a bow/shot by a gun and my DR saves some of it? It just doesn't fit. What's the difference?

And for all we know lasers may be considered fire damage so it would be energy resistance not DR.


Ooohhhh yyyeeeaaahhh.

I swear do people just go out of their way to make sure things don't work? Paizo posts a FAQ and the first thing people do is look for every possible tiny way it couldn't work but ignore the ways it could. I'm suddenly reminded of armor spikes...le sigh.

Wow, so old lol

If anyone is interested still in how this ended I would be happy to tell. I was the Lizardfolk Hellknight in that campaign and boy did things get really dumb.

I'll bite...what happened? Also lizardfolk hellknight sounds awesome.

Damn right they are. At least they didn't look like the Kane from See No Evil...

Player: I want to build my character this way. That will include shooting for a magic greatsword.

GM: Ok, I've got some choices here. I can:

1. give the player what he wants (player entitlement)

2. give the player what I want - not fun for the player but I'm happy

3. play a session involving shopping - can be quite boring for everyone

4. make the player craft it/have it crafted (player entitlement)

5. create a balanced subsystem or employ one already made to add bonuses without material needs - too many rules

There are pros and cons to all of these. We as GMs choose the least evil from the list that works for us. Personally I just give the players what they want. They build based on wanting to see a certain combo come to fruition. I feel my job as GM is to help them achieve that.

Now this doesn't mean they don't work for it. They don't just say "gimmie a belt of strength!" and I bow and scrape and one falls from the sky. No, instead I know ahead of time that they'll need the item. Then they fight a monster; a truly frightening monster made all the more frightening by the fact that its wearing/wielding/usurping the power of the item the PC wants. Or maybe there's a legend that partially encapsulates the item they want.

Whatever, TL/DR. Bottom line, for me it's more about working WITH my players instead of against them. If that includes items alongside powers and experiences they want, I provide them in a fun way.

This is more or less what I've been trying to say.


Which is why I said both sides need to be flexible if the campaign is set in Ancient Greece it's probably not the best place for that Wild West cowboy you always wanted to play.

Why put the plot device weapon as a weapon you know your players weren't going to use? Doesn't matter how many +5 vorpal blades you lay out for my archer he's stll not going to use them. Or how many greatswords you lay out if my character is a dagger wielding street tough.

Confused havoc is confused.

Uh, because it's relevant to the story? You know, like if it was created by/sacred to a god. St Cuthbert for example.
Sometimes you need flexibility on the player side as well.

Not allowed. Only the GM must be flexible.

Sarcasm mode disengage.

Even in fantasy the super awesome weapon that can kill the evil god king is almost 99.99% of the time the hero's normal style of weapon. I understand both sides being flexible but what I'm getting here is I'm the DM and you'd better take what I give you AND LIKE IT!!

I got as far as seeing Megan Fox and had to end the video before rage happned.

How does that make sense? Don't most characters focus on one weapon? If the DM is only placing +3 greatsword knowing your barbarian focused in axes seems like the DM is being an [redacted]

Now that I think about it for all this talk of "organic characters" it seems pretty nonorganic to just use every weapon you find doesn't flavor matter? If my character is an axe wielding barbarian and you give him a greatsword it's not going to match the image of the character. This sounds more like a videogame mentality than any of the "powergamer" arguments I've ever heard.

I've never understood the whole "if you want this item here is an entire quest for it" thing. So is the character going to go "hey guys I know we need to save the world and stuff but I totally heard about this dwarves hero who had a really bomb shield I was thinking we could go and take it" how exactly does that work?

The whole game would just be item grinding...kill daimon awakened form until he drops a daimon claw to build your new sword...


Just want to say a few things...the Edgewalker is damn cool, I want to play an arcane duelist nullblade now, and the Direlock is an awesome class that I still need to write a review on...what I'm cold blooded and it's been cold recently.

And I still need to get on my aging computer and find those art pieces sorry OSW....

<_<

Agreed I love having individual aliases for PBPs it makes it easier to know who. Character I'm using.


I'll take one of the afore mentioned copies.


Have you looked at the Swordmaster from Dreadfox Games? It may have some interesting abilities you might like.

Dotting very much dotting.


Really? Mine normally stay hidden and occasionally will escape but now it won't stay past a refresh screen.


Don't know if anyone else is having this problem but my past campaigns won't stay hidden.


You apply the 20 gp cost to each arrow individually and I'd say yes it stacks since it doesn't mention it being an enhancement bonus or anything.

So let me crack you in the kneecap with a ball-peen hammer instead of a sledgehammer.

I maintain that the skill with which a weapon is used matters more than just its mass.

Which is why sneak attacks aren't affected by size.

just have a npc hafling gun caddy follow the pc around, honestly everyone makes things so complicated. :)

There is a character in the pathfinders tales who does exactly this. Only with a dwarf, she carries one rifle and two pistols he carries the other rifle handing it and taking the spent one and reloading it.


Yep but I probably won't need that against the minion and then I can use dance of flame/dance of storms on the bigger enemy. Mythic Champion+Swordmaster will be fun.


Do you have to be in combat with the target of Tactical Repartee?

As in can I be fighting some minion and use Tactical Repartee against the BBEG so after two rounds I jump into a sequitur that allows me to move and attack him?


ADT salesman. That's right I'm the guy who'd come to your door in the the middle of the day and convince you that you had to have this security system. I like to call it my dark days as a Con Artist.

I spent 2 hours in a meth house selling them a security system...my karma bucket is overflowing..also sold a lady one by coming up to her door with out a jacks so I was cold and she let me in to not freeze. :/

Maybe that's why my avatar is a snake...

Let's be honest if it wasn't Ice Tomb someone would has looked for something else to flame about (probably monks and crane wing) so acting like Ice Tomb being fixed would have made the internet a wonderful lovable place is false.


PbP campaigns have a new look hmmm.


That despite all the garbage thrown their way they allow us the gamers to hang out on this forum. And that they allow me to play my games from their own site.


Will there ever be an update that makes the site look not....weird on iPhone's?

A year back. It got three votes.

Good, I was scared it was a time space continuum fracture and I was catching glimpses of the future.

The Labyrinth.


So their dead body hanging from a meat hook?


...so it's etched in the flayed flesh of your enemies? That's the only way I can think of it being bit ways.


Hmmm it would seem my villainous plot to get J.J to reveal the Slayer iconic has failed...


Why is my favorite type of character I.E sneaky types all female?

I'm hoping for a male Slayer. *crosses fingers*

That's unfortunate because the [redacted] and [redacted] are fighting a [redacted].


Guessing its to early to ask about the expansion? :)

woohoo!! I was right...in the sense that I was wrong....


I'm assuming Fallout New Vegas but only because it reminds me of Fallout 3's Three Dog radio host. But this is for movies and such.....so I'm probably wrong.
