Expecting two main things:

1. Weapon-slot enhancer for unarmed strikes.
Just because your character is based on unarmed strikes doesn't mean you should be compelled to sacrifice an Amulet of Natural Armor. This one has been a long time coming. Balance it however you want - make it more expensive, avoid it from applying to natural attacks, whatever you may have it. But just let me have that neck slot. It's very weird that my Brawler power spikes when playing with Automatic Bonus Progression.

2. Make Strength great again.
Strength is viable for melee builds, but it's not sexy. Finesse playstyles are so popular, in my opinion, because they represent a venue for self-expression, while most STR weapons blend together blandly. This is your chance to introduce non-magical, mundane weapons called something like Colossus Sword, Titan Axe, Greatbow, Grandhammer, etc. Make these weapons that have a minimum STR requirement to be used proficiently, and provide bonuses which include high damage dice (and perhaps unique crit rates like 19-20/x4 or 18-20/x3), and also other interesting boosts (such as the Greatbow always adding STR to damage like an adaptative bow, or the Grandhammer dealing damage even on misses).

FANTASTIC! Wondered when this would happen.

Unfortunately, this means I still cannot cancel my Player Comp subscription...too bad. :P

It's a conspiracy I tell ya!

Given the steep discount AA1 is currently at, I'm thinking of buying a pile of them for my local PFS group. ^_^

Adventurer's Armory (1) is one of the few Pathfinder books that received a 2nd printing.

Of this 2nd printing over 250 issues remain in Paizo's warehouse.

Personally i don't need another book besides Ultimate Equipment, but there may be some cool stuff in this.


You have my attention.

Other then this book and Distant Worlds, what other softcover Pathfinder books got a 2nd printing?

Pretty sure Technology Guide got a second printing, but I don't remember if it was softcover or not.

On another note, this time let's please actually do some in-depth QA for this book? We don't want another repeat of the first book's problems.


Dragon78 wrote:

I believe the Technology Guide was reprinted at least once. ^_^

That said, this is not a reprint - it's a sequel. (The original Adventurer's Armory was reprinted, though.)


Nice! :) I look forward to seeing this in June. :)

For 1 I think the best way to word it is the way 3.5 did Necklace of Natural Attacks (which is actually better for fists while Amulet of Mighty Fists is better for natural attack) except not blowing the amulet slot. It applies to a single natural attack or you unarmed strike, which can be your unarmed strike. It's short, effective, and usable for builds that will use a single natural attack that otherwise have the same problems.

As for strength, more damage is kinda bland. Dex is popular because it does something other than make you hit harder, which the bonus for 2 handing and power attack already does. Most dex builds have other sources of damage (shocking grasp, sneak attack, double strength inspire courage)

For new weapons, there's lots of candidates which haven't yet been brought into pathfinder. I just finished reading A History of Weapons: Crossbows, Caltrops, Catapults & lots of other things that can seriously mess you up. It's a mix of humor and history, but had a few weapons I've never heard of before, as well as all of the standard fare (including some of the more exotic weapons already in Pathfinder.) It could be a good source of ideas of things to include.

I'd love to see a brandistock and lantern shield. Sleeve arrows are also pretty cool.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber Subscriber

There better be archetypes for armor and weapons.

What?


The thing that Jackie Chan does with a weapon cord in this clip.
1:36 - 1:40.
Make rules for it, and I'm sold. =D

Also, that's a badass-looking weapon cord.

Yep, rules for some of the things which can't easily be re-skinned from existing items would be nice. In addition to the above that could include;

Hand Buckler (the hand-held style buckler)
Buckler Sword (wrist-worn buckler with a blade extending over the back of the hand)
Sword Shield (combination tower shield and double spear)
Double Spear (haft with spear blades on each end)
Metsubishi (tool for blowing various powders in enemy's face)


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I'd like a Jian, once and for all. Also, a pavise, assuming I haven't missed it in print somewhere (which is certainly possible).

I also wouldn't mind more exotic shields like a target shield.

For those asking for specific and obscure weapons, please note that not all freelancers are as historically knowledgeable as yourselves. When making these requests, I recommend linking to succinct and easily-parsed descriptions of these weapons and their uses. This increases the chance of such requests becoming reality.

Thank you! ^_^

Personally, I would appreciate seeing an item that is both an Amulet of Mighty Fists and an Amulet of Natural Armor, following the usual rules for pricing added effects. I mean, that's something you can craft yourself under the Core rules alone... but an official version would be nice. XD

I'm just waiting for the Spring-Loaded Scroll Case. Eliminate that pesky table variation, and make scrolls of Breath of Life consistently usable.

Wouldn't the spring shred the scroll? I would think scrolls too fragile for something like this...not a bad idea, though.


I sooooo want to see an Orc weapon that requires a minimum strength requirement in order to wield it properly and hits like a large bastard sword.

Yeah I was just thinking of something like this for a character concept I was working on the other day.

I had an idea for a Great Mace and a Grand Mace. High damage dice and high crit multiplier were what I was thinking not so much on the high crit chance. The Grand Mace would be the better of the two and could do Bludgeoning or Piercing damage. Actually I was thinking all three types from the image in my head but that might be hard to balance. Maybe the slashing does less damage? I do like the high str to use idea especially for huge blunt weapons.

Shortly after Adventurer's Armory came out, Ultimate Equipment came out.
I wonder if we will be getting Ultimate Equipment 2 sometime soon.

Unfortunately, many of these are obscure enough that it is difficult to find much about them online. Turns out there IS still info that can only be found in books. I've provided images and descriptions of each.

Handheld Buckler - A small metal shield with a crossbar gripped in the fist. Used for blocking and punching. Not sure what to call this. Historically, it was just a buckler... and the Pathfinder 'buckler' might more often have been called a small targe. The term 'buckler' comes from a French word for 'boss' (aka 'umbo'), the round raised area on center grip shields, because the buckler was essentially JUST the boss without the rest of the shield. Thus, maybe 'boss' or 'umbo' could be used since 'buckler' is taken. Or go full on role reversal and call it a targe. :]

Lantern Shield - Combination spiked gauntlet / gauntlet sword / buckler (Pathfinder style) / lantern holder with a little port in the shield which could be opened to let light out. Meant to shine light in the opponent's eyes to distract them or ruin night vision.

Buckler Sword - Pathfinder style buckler with a blade extending out over the back of the hand.

Sleeve Arrow (Xiu Jian) - A spring loaded tube which could be strapped to the forearm and triggered to launch a small spike. One shot short range weapon surprise weapon.

Brandistock (buttafuore, feather staff) - A wooden haft, sometimes formed into a cane or walking stick, with one long or three shorter collapsible blades hidden inside. Blades deploy and lock in place if the head of the staff is swung down (like a gravity knife).

Metsubishi - Name given to three different types of devices for deploying various powder weapons (e.g. powdered pepper to irritate the eyes, ground glass and metal shavings to cause blindness, sneezing powder, itching powder, choking powder, inhaled poison, flash powder, et cetera). The different forms were; egg shells or other fragile containers filled with powder and thrown at the victim, short tubes (e.g. bamboo) swung at the victim to deploy the powder, or a sort of powder blow gun. All were essentially limited to melee range. The tubes would probably be easiest. Was most often used to create a distraction allowing escape or open attack on the target.

Double spear (shuang qiang) - Two weapons just like the existing Pathfinder short spear and long spear, but with spearheads at each end.

Sword Shield (hackenshild) - A tower shield attached lengthwise to a double spear. Used two handed to bash or stab while providing solid defense.

I did link to a book which had 1 page on the weapons I mentioned. It's half humor half fact, but 100% entertaining. I'd recommend it for all gamers - it has stuff as basic as rocks and spears to the outlandish exotic weapons I mentioned and more (though only some, not all that CBDunkerson mentioned).

I'll be curious to see whether Equipment Traits are included. It did seem like Paizo wanted to retcon them out of existence when Ultimate Equipment came out, seeing as how they were basically the only thing not compiled. Then again, opinions can change in four years.

I think there's still some stuff left untouched from AA, although I could be mistaken. Were any of the Equipment Trick feats or alchemical power components compiled elsewhere?

In any case, I'm certainly a fan of Equipment traits - I even included some in a recent turnover. ^_^

Posting with two different aliases to hide the fact that you are double posting is deliberately misleading. No one should ever do such a thing!

I don't know ANYONE other than Kalindlara who makes multiple posts in a row with different aliases. I certainly would never do such a thing. It almost becomes painful to read after awhile...
