Liz Courts you are a Vrockstar and it's going to be weird having a Paizo without you. But I'm happy that you are moving on to something bright, shiny, new, and exciting. So I guess we can only say, so long and thanks for all the cookies! I will cherish my baked treat buttons forever.

Us the effects from the maw of chaos spell in the Wages of Sin article in Sword of Valor. It increases the power level of the ability (which as written is super weak vs mythic heroes).

Maw of Chaos:
MAW OF CHAOS
School conjuration (teleportation) [chaotic];
Level cleric 8, sorcerer/wizard 8
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, 5, F/DF (a gold-plated, cold iron ring that was
forged in the Abyss)
Range close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Area 5-foot-radius spread
Duration concentration (maximum 1 round/level)
Saving Throw see text;
Spell Resistance yes; see text

This spell creates a rip in reality that plunges into the interspatial vortices that constantly churn with the raw destructive chaos of the Abyss. Each round at the beginning of your turn, the maw of chaos attempts a drag combat maneuver check against every creature within 40 feet, using your caster level plus your primary spellcasting ability modifier in place of a CMB. If a creature is dragged into a maw of chaos, the area erupts in a surge of chaotic energy and the creature
takes 1d6 points of damage per caster level. Only one such eruption can occur per round.

Creatures dragged adjacent to the mow of chaos become entangled by the frayed strands of reality being torn apart at the rim of the maw of chaos. Escape requires a successful Escape Artist check or grapple check against a DC equal to 10 plus the spell's save DC. Every creature without the chaotic subtype that ends its turn adjacent to a maw of chaos takes 2 points of damage to each ability score. Creatures with the lawful subtype take double this amount of damage; creatures
with the chaotic subtype take no damage.

Calling, summoning, and teleportation effects used within 30 feet of the maw of chaos or that cause a creature to appear within 30 feet of a maw of chaos are redirected, causing the creature to arrive adjacent to the maw of chaos rather than at its intended destination. Unattended objects (including dead bodies) adjacent to the maw of chaos are drawn into it and affected as by disintegrate at the beginning of the caster's next turn.

Holy crap there's a lot of maps for this. 7 separate flip mats (2 using both sides), and 6 different map packs. None of which I have (so I'm drawing). Even then I may only use 1/3 of them.

And then I'll attack Drezen. In the "all out assault" way that the module mentions. So I need to find monsters that are on theme for 4 Level 11/Tier4ish PCs. So 3-4 encounters of CR13/14, if I go with the module recommendations

Use this monster, The Mountainous Feaster and use several armies of dretch to simulate this thing spawning mobs of them constantly. You'll bring the whole Attack on Titan vibe to the assault! If there are any named NPCs from Drezen that escaped, like the incubus Exorius, the succubus Kiranda, or the tiefling Chorussina use them as army commanders.

Alushinnyra is a city continually cloaked in darkness and shadows. It's also called the Porphyry city due to the stone used to construct many of its buildings. It's also home to incubi, succubi, shadow creatures of all types, and lots and lots of cambions (think 7 deadly sins).

Look at the districts and you'll have some guidance on naming conventions. The Fleshmarkets for example could have a slave trading auction house called The Dark Lady's Thrall Emporium or a brothel called The Perilous Embrace.

I rolled a random encounter of the adult umbral dragon pop up in concert with the PCs hunting down a certain disgraced lilitu and they faced her and the dragon in it's underground lair/ apothecary shop called Penumbral Potions & Poisons.

When I rolled the Drinker of Thoughts encounter I had the Oolioddroo run an inn and tavern near the Gates of the Moon called The Thirsty Dreamer.

As my PCs searched out magic items in the metropolis I made a tailor shop selling clothing based wondrous items called Nightblade's Needle run by a drow blackblade magus.

So in a random turn of events I am back down to 4 players. The paladin player had to drop due to work schedule.

So now my party is a ranger(guardian), sorcerer(Archmage), cleric(Heirophant) and fighter(champion). The damage dealers dropped(the slayer and pally) for life reasons. I'm completely stuck on getting them to the Succubus which is going to be this next session. I suppose she would reach out to the sorceress since she is more deifically similar to the Succubus. The story just doesn't have quite the punch that it would have given that the slayer had the chance encounter trait.

Re-writing the adventures to fit your party is always going to be a given since the designers and authors can't anticipate every hiccup we experience at the table.

In my group we have a long history of planar adventuring from 2e Planescape and our group is a Golarion reimagining of that group of adventurers. The paladin from the old campaign met and fell in love with a demon (alu-fiend) and even though the current paladin (same player) has the Touched by Awfulness trait I re-wrote the mythic trials so rescueing Arueshalae was his campaign mythic trial (and the falling in love option of the succubus's redemption) and the rescue of possessed Jesker Helton was the trial for our tiefling inquisitor of Erastil because of shared god and the theme of an inquisitor casting out the demon from his fellow priest.

We're on the last set of encounters in the Ivory Sanctum and defeating Jerribeth will make up for our dwarven barabrian champion missing the night they faced the Woundwyrm. The glabrezu has not only already killed the dwarf once in the Sanctum, but it was her blood that gave him the stolen fury trait.

My party fluctuates from 4-7 players, 20 pt buy, and they're all veteran players so the stock adventure is not going to challenge them. I have really enjoyed using sc8rpi8n_mjd's statblocks for the BBEGs and sub-boss monsters. I've also liberally used the simple advanced template on all the mooks to make them more than just a speedbump.

As you're still hexploring, I recommend using 15% per hex entered and 45% per day exploring or resting for random encounters, as well as using the weather (and tables) from the Worldwound setting book. I do not use straight xp (use SKR's step system, similar to Unchained staggered advancement rules) so I don't worry throwing to many or too few encounters. I really enjoy using the extra enemies in the bestiary of each adventure somehow.

D&D 3.5 FAQ

Page 113.

Sovereign Court

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Ok did some digging and the 3.5 FAQ had this to say about Resistances and Vulnerabilities...

From the 3.5 FAQ:
"If a monster has resistance and vulnerability to the
same kind of damage (such as fire), which effect is applied
first? [...]

If the creature has both resistance and vulnerability to the
same kind of damage, apply the resistance (which reduces the
damage dealt by the effect) before applying the vulnerability
(which increases the damage taken by the creature). For
example, imagine our frost giant wore a ring of minor fire
resistance (granting resistance to fire 10). If the save failed, the
frost giant would take 37 points of fire damage: 35 (fireball) –
10 (resistance to fire 10) = 25, plus one-half of 25 (12.5,
rounded down to 12). If the save succeeded, the frost giant
would take only 10 points of damage: 17 (half damage from the
fireball, rounded down) – 10 (resistance to fire 10) = 7, plus
one-half of 7 (3.5, rounded down to 3).
As a general guideline, whenever the rules don’t stipulate
an order of operations for special effects (such as spells or
special abilities), you should apply them in the order that’s
most beneficial to the creature. In the case of damage, this
typically means applying any damage-reducing effects first,
before applying any effects that would increase damage."

So I haven't found anything that changed enough in Pathfinder to supersede this. Looks like you're correct.

Most of my skills would have just a few ranks (+class skill bonus) and I rely on lots and lots of masterwork tools, equipment, & alchemical items!

Day job I'm a Warrior/Expert with ranks in Climb, Heal, Knowledge (alchemy, engineering), & Profession (clerk). Security contractor in industrial setting: Confinced space/high angle rescue; Basic first aid/CPR/AED; Hazmat, fire protection/ Machine Rescue; paperwork galore

Outisde of work my addition skills are Craft (cartography, painting), Knowledge (geography, local), & Survival. Chalkboard art, photography, illustration; map making, orienteering, navigation (esp cities); basic woodcraft, weather prediction (stormchaser).

I like where you're going with this. I have only watched people play the ACG online so I may not have all the insights to how it can expand upon play in the AP. But I do like some of the mechanics I've seen, like the corruption trait and the barriers that allow you to gain one of three items but only at the detriment of your group.

I'm currently just about to run my players through the Ivory Sanctum in Demon's Heresy and other than adequately challenging my 7 player mythic group I want to somehow refocus the group on the redemption angle. So far the paladin in the group has taken to redeeming Arles and Arushalae, the barbarian dwarf is redeeming Joran, and the dhampir sor/oracle/mystic theurge/soon-to-be eldritch knight is redeeming Nurah.

However the group is too quick to kill in general... my tiefling inquisitor and the dwarf barbarian in particular. Both had no qualms about killing NPCs under possession or domination effects. They raised Aron after defeating Eustyriax, and nearly killed Jesker Helton before driving the Shachath out of him. I like the idea of Devotion points being used throughout the AP. That's something the Worldwound Incursion did well. It will especially play into their future meeting with Iomedae herself!

The Rock of Bral is like a thousand times the size of this place, it's a spaceport, and its set in a space fantasy setting. Just because the concept has been done before doesn't mean this particular take of weird magic terrain that wanders between the Mana Wastes and Nex is any lesser. An asteroid city in Spelljammer is pretty normal. A floating orb in Golarion is far, far from ordinary... even for adventurers.

The smaller scale in itself makes it more interesting. Also the possibility of making this flip map actually FLIP is very cool. Hell I'd buy the .pdf to print both sides and glue it to a cylinder or sphere and use magnets or tape on minis to play out an encounter here. Hell make a mobile or orrey out of the system. Line of sight for ranged attacks and spells would be bananas! You're not going to get the same playability off the Rock of Bral.

Having just written a Nexian tomb set inside an enormous geode-like demiplane this map calls out to me in a big way. Talk about using terrain to make a dynamic combat encounter. This reminds me of what a battle could be like between two cubes on the plane of Acheron from the old great wheel cosmology.

Very cool stuff Garrick!

Congratulations Kiel on making the Top 32! As a stormchaser I liked that you used the term scud to describe the cloud as it disperses. I think solid fog and shocking grasp may have been better choices for the effects as the price would more accurately reflect the sheer usefulness of this consumable. Good luck in round 2.

Staggered advancement is basically giving you a little bit of your next level early. So yes when you get skill points buy ranks in the skills as if you were 2nd level. No you cannot save anything until you level up. Just like normal advancement, when you get the skill points or feats you have to use them.

Creepy to say the least. Which is a good fit for the Occult Adventures' theme I think.

Paizo has psychically stolen several ideas from my brain. I've taken to wearing tin-foil hats, which helps. You should too. Protect your intellectual property any way you can! ;D

I would not be surprised to see a tin foil hat in Occult Adventures equipment section!

But as a follower of the paranormal IRL, the Occultist reminds me of John Zaffis, star of Syfy's Haunted Collector.

The explanation of how low-light vision interacts with the actual radius of the spells is a key point, especially with those who try a similar argument that having darkvision can negate a Shadowdancer's hide in plain sight ability.

There is certainly a lot to keep in mind when creating a new monster, let alone a monster that fits into Golarion. With all the pieces of advice you're going to absorb keep this one piece in mind. Keep it Simple!

While you may want to give your monster a bunch of super cool and deadly abilities the one thing to remember is this beast is generally only going to live for 2-5 rounds of combat! In order to get the best bang for your buck you want to keep the monster's core concept tight and concise. Give it a really cool core ability that you can base the encounter around and that informs the creatures combat tactics. Obviously you have to watch that you don't fall into the glass cannon/paper tiger/one-trick pony trap, but a monster needs to be easy to run by the GM. A monster with more than 3-5 tricks up its sleeve is getting out of control.

I like having a strong offensive trick, a passive defense, and something a little weird.

Good luck to those lucky few who make the Top 16!

Unfortunately the armor doesn't state that. If it did why even pull the target towards you or grapple in the first place?

Usually a frog monster's tongue doesn't deliver its poison but pulls you closer to be eaten. The poison is a purely defensive adaptation. I think pulling a victim into the actual armor provides enough cinematic tension for the chance to afflict them with the toxin. It also fits with armor being a defensive (passive) item.

I use SKR's Step system for alternate XP. Basically each session we play is worth 1/4 of a level. Each night at the end (or sometimes in the middle of a lengthy night) the Players get to choose either A) HD & BAB, B) Saves, C) Skills, or D) Special Abilities from their class chart.

I like it because my players tend to fall into the high reward spectrum and they get to improve their characters a little each game. It also means I can do away with some of the meaningless combat encounters in published adventures that are only there to pad the XP numbers in order to level. We generally play 20 pt. buy and have 5-6 players so I have to adjust most adventures to suit anyway.

Sean has definitely been one of my favorite designers over the years. All my success in RPG Superstar is arguably from reading his blogs and posts. My favorite memory of Sean was the time I visited the old paizo offices back in 2009. He gave me and my gf the grand tour of the place, introduced me to the staff who recognized me from my now infamous Vrock puns (proof the staff pays attention to the community). He also gave me a stack of fiction that they didn't want to move to the new offices! Still have a few of those to read.

That's why they post the schedule for the entire contest my friend. You need to commit to participating on the blind faith your item has the mojo to move you into the Top 32.

Well this Detroit Lions fan made it to the Top 16 on his first try in 2011, then I made Top 4 last year. I didn't even begin designing my items until the contest started, though my experience from 2011 told me to absolutely get to work on ideas for the following rounds immediately. That 3 day turn around is no joke! Just be prepeared for possible twists in later rounds.
