Quick question-- after perusing a buddy's copy of the book, I just realized that I don't remember seeing an effective druid level for the Falconer's Feathered Companion feature. It mentioned that the bird is like a druid's companion, but with half hit-points, and it mentioned that at Ranger level 4, Hunter's Bond brings it up to normal HP, but the effective druid level wasn't there, as I recall.

Am I remembering this correctly? What should the effective druid level be for the Feathered Companion?

The Falconer's effective Druid level is equal to their Ranger class level. If there is no specific conversion listed, it's always assumed to be such.

After all, the Falconer effectively gives up two class features for the removal of that penalty, and all the while they are forced into selecting a specific animal companion AND have to endure it having half hit points for four levels, which can get nasty.

Not to say that it isn't a good archetype, however. That's just one squishy bird that I personally wouldn't let anywhere near combat for four levels.

I can't wait til the PDF is available but just from the talk so far I am already getting ideas.

I am picturing an Oracle(Metal mystery)/ Barbarian (Titan Mauler) I think that is the name of the archetype, well the one that lets you use oversize weapons.

Imagine this character using an oversized elven curved blade +1 Keen and then lead blades is cast. It's just plain evil. The weapon would be doing 3d8 points of damage with a threat range of 15 to 20.

Then get really silly and gain at least 6 levels of fighter with the Two-handed Weapon fighter archetype for back swings that added double the strength score to every attack after the first.

Edit: Oh and then someone in your party casts the enlarge person spell on you.

You can't use oversized 2 hander. You can use a oversized 1 hander with Titan Mauler.

RAW, you're right, RAI, it's stupid.

If I am able to use a huge sword one-handed, I think it will not be hard to do it two-handed. And in terms of balance, I don't see the problem since choosing between S&B & 2HF is something made by the overwhelming majority of melee warriors.
The Titan Mauler will need a bit or FAQ clarification or errata to become perfect, notably on the topic of weapon size and how you can manipulate them through your leveling. If you can only wield heavier weapons but always from a lighter category (going from 1-handed large bastard sword to colossal dagger ?), I don't see a lot of improvement in gaining levels.

Just read the martial artist archetype for the monk. A more realistic down to earth martial artist that can be of any alignment? I love it!

Traveler: Who are you?
Martial Artist: I'm a martial artist.
Traveler: Oh, one of them mysterious monks from the mountain?
Marital Artist: No. Just a martial artist.

:D

ROFL!!!!

I've HAD that conversation!!!

I had a 2E fighter with a homemade 'unarmed fighter kit' I called a 'martial artist.'

I can't remember HOW many times I had to correct the ranger in the group who insisted on calling him a 'monk.'

"Whatever... Same difference' was the commone response :)


A sohei cannot use flurry blows when light wearing armour. Ins´t it?
