I had a few questions about the weapon modifications rules and how they interact with various forms of proficiency. Check it out, and maybe hit the FAQ button if you're curious too.


I addressed the specific-weapons part upthread, if it helps. ^_^

I still need to see the printed text in its entirety to be sure about proficiency-with-weapon-group classes.

I'm too lazy to go through 355 posts, so does this booklet answer the question of uncommon sized armor cost with special materials?

Can I ask for brief, non-copy paste descriptions of the Adventurer's Sash, Rope Recaller and whatever Kitumu's ire is?

The PDF release seems so far away! :(


Do spring-loaded scroll cases mean I can now have more than two items drawable as a swift-action? Like, wands of Shield and Magic Missile, while still having a few utility scrolls available at a moment's notice?

Do those teeth chew your food for you?

Are the wing sheaths used as weapons, clothing, or restraint? Or are they underarm weapon sheaths for winged races?

What does the Razor-Sharp weapon modification do?

Spoiler:
The adventurer's sash seems to be almost identical to the version from Seekers of Secrets; the wording of the last two sentences has been modified slightly, but mechanically it seems identical.

A rope recaller is a clockwork mechanism that contains rope which can be used, and then retracts said rope when activated, though it can only handle so much weight.

Kitumu's ire can be thrown at someone, after which it makes them a favorite target of any swarms around as well as making it harder for them to deal with swarms.

What does the Razor-Sharp weapon modification do?

Spoiler:
No, it only holds a single scroll, which is retrievable as a swift action.

Clockwork teeth are more of novelties that can move in a straight line after being wound up.

Wing sheaths help creatures with wings conceal them from view.

Razor-sharp weapons deal extra damage a limited number of times per day.


I was actually thinking more along the lines of "a dozen scroll cases running down each leg."


So how expensive are, and how exactly do the Acid, Fire, and Ice Bolt alchemical weapons work? I want to hope that alchemists may finally get the chance to make crossbows finally shine, but I'm not holding my breath on these things being anything but adding a minuscule amount of split damage and that's it.


Thank you Luthorne! :) This helps tremendously. :)

Quickly, does sunsilver work better than regular silver in fighting vampires?

Maybe, you can use it to reflect bright light so if you have access to a concentrated spot of sunlight...

Acid and Ice Bolts cost 40 gold, Fire cost 50, and all are craftable with DC 25 Craft (Alchemy). They do normal crossbow damage +1d4 of relevant damage type.

A bit of a shame, if I have to be honest. I guess it was probably too much to hope for a special crossbow ammunition that gets treated as a splash weapon for the sake of adding an Alchemist's Throw Anything damage bonus.


Do we finally get a potion belt in this manual?


Kind've odd that fire arrows are the most expensive, when they're the least likely to be useful. In any case, they all cost less than a third the price of a +1 flaming/shock/corrosive/whatever arrow, which is nice.

don't forget the rest of the pointless armours - list:

for a trifle of 1005/1100gp you can have nimble padded armour/quilted cloth (I think this requires a feat) with armour bonus and ACP of 0 and max dex of 10! just in case you though you were getting too much dex to AC with over 10
or if you want a bit less max dex than the nimble padded armour you've got the option of 0 armour bonus, 7 max dex nimble reinforced tunic for 1001gp

or ofc there's the nimble silken ceremonial/haramaki for 1030/1003gp with 0 armour bonus and ACP and no max dex


I don't suppose those alchemical bolts have text in them to allow alchemical arrows, do they? Or are they supposed to be a crossbow-specific perk?

While it is pretty hilarious, I guess I could see it as a fairly expensive magic armor enchantment delivery system for someone who managed to get over 30 Dex. Which, come to think of it, is actually pretty possible.

But for those situations, you've already got the standard Haramaki which has no limit on Dex. And it costs all of 3gp.

Yeah, but some of us just avoid Haramaki like the plague. All the images from the real world I can find online just have way too much of the chainmail bikini from Star Wars kind of flavor for me...

Hey, who doesn't want chainmail bikinis on 200-year-old elven men?

Granted, my wizard has silken ceremonial armor, but that's less for the look and more for the material.

Haramaki have a chainmail bikini flavor to them? Aren't they the opposite: big bands of mail covering the belly region while you otherwise wear normal clothes?

On a more thread-relevant note, I heard upthread that there are sweet things for improvised weapon users in here. Other than the Gloves of Improvised Might, what else is there that makes improvised weapons a more practical fighting style? Also, do the gloves of improvised might play a role similar to an amulet of mighty fists, or do they do something totally different?

New options and modifiers depending on the shape and state of the improvised weapon in question.

And yes.


The gloves are virtually identical to an Amulet, except they're gloves and unfortunately *do* have to have at least a +1.

Uh yeah not really seeing what you mean there

In general, real life armors never have that "chainmail bikini" flavor because fetishist armor was never a thing in real life periods were armors were used :P


Yeah, haramakis were a thing all over the armor-making world, just Japan's take is what's used for Paizo's eastern armor entry. It's literally just a belly wrap with little metal plates or chain sewn behind or between the fabric layers.

Anyone have any idea what the sickle-sword is supposed to look like? The description doesn't really help illustrate what this thing is supposed to look like in action and pretty much every other weapon traditionally called a sickle sword (sica, khopesh, etc.) has already been statted and illustrated somewhere else. Does anyone know if there is some preexisting art for this specific Irrisen weapon?

OK, this leaves me wondering what I was finding when I searched for images when someone suggested this armor to me a year or two ago. I wonder if some jokester was messing around with wikipedia or something.

Thank you for the historical education, everyone.

I suspect there's a pricing error on p12, for the Cane

A Simple Cane is described as being "no more than a sturdy branch", and yet it is priced at 2GP - 20 times as much as a Common Cane.

My guess would be that the Simple Cane should be priced at 2CP, not 2GP.

You are corrected in that it should be 2 cp. The correct price is on the back inside cover.

I feel like there was a missed opportunity with the cane. With the Ezren pregen there is a damage listing for the cane, but there is no place that actually lists the cane as a weapon or damage for it. I wish they had included weapon stats for the cane or even just a statement that it deals damage as a <insert appropriate weapon here>.

This would legitimize the Ezren pregen's stats and opened up the cane for PFS characters as a weapon choice.

Don't we already have the hanbo from the original Adventurer's Armory to act as a cane, though?

But isn't a cane a kind of walking stick?

Edit: At least I presume we're talking about the walking cane that's a walking stick with a curved top much like a shepherd's staff, but shorter, and not the actual material cane, which seems too flimsy to really make a good weapon out of; most walking canes are made out of wood or something more durable despite originating from walking sticks made from the material.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

A cane can be a walking stick but not all walking sticks are canes.

Sovereign Court

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Campaign Setting, Companion, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

I'm failing to grasp the distinction. Both a cane and walking stick are lengths of wood used for support. It seems like a hanbo could be styled as a cane.
