I want it to be a lore skill. What would be appropriately specific for my Oracle of the Heavens, who knows so much about the stars (and other Celestial Bodies), and otherwise not very much about the natural world around her?
Okay, I'm looking at the Lore Skill from PF Unchained, and it gives a variety of examples, however I was looking for a place to post my question and wasn't able to find it. I'd like to start this thread to either get(or give) directions to the thread that covers this, or be the thread that covers Appropriate Lore Topics.
This should be good for those who actually have questions about such things as a lore skill being appropriately specific.
I know that I'm not part of the Humble Bundle Group, but i did make a standard transaction purchase of a 3rd party book/pdf Bundle, and i don't know if this is the way it is with any 3rd party stuff or if it is because of the recent fiasco with the Humble Bundle, but after 3 days i haven't even been given the opportunity to download the PDF portion of my order. because last time i did a book/pdf bundle I had the PDF right away, and the book came in its own due time.
Sounds like fun right? But, who wouldn't want a vessel to be magically enhanced as it was constructed with magic devices, (and psionic gadgets if you do that stuff). I was thinking that it would have a magic engine, for fuel simplicity.
I set one up in the campaign that I've been setting up for, and have found no reference to RPG-ize such a vehicle, and it's functions. Most of its construction was done by a veritable army of Uber-Powerful, High-level, Heroic NPCs. 99% of which the PCs will never meet because they're all dead, for one reason or another.
Otherwise What are your thoughts on such an intricate device.
Exile Isle Plot Spoiler:
for the sake of the story: the Shelterton Submersible is constructed From a combination of Mithral, Magically Strengthened Brass, with an outer hull of Adamantine. it is designed to withstand the deepest depths, and the most deadly predators without succumbing to the corrosive nature of saltwater. its construction is as a result of the Massive deposits of the various metals, along with various gems and crystals, naturally found on the island (because teleportation off the island, and plane shifting is negated by the magic of the island). the Vehicle was hidden by the Dwarves, and Gnomes in the Depth of the mine.
If the Elan Race from D&D 3.5, and the Psionics... stuff have been "pathfinderized" then could I be directed to where such could be found.
I'm smoothing out a dragon-blooded human slayer who loves to hunt, and is trying to build an airship so he can drop in on his prey (or studied targets) and to get away from the world in which he lives for... various reasons.

I totally love Get Smart I could see those lines in the movie... and at the table.
I would like to see where in history "breast-plate" armor was ever made. seriously. I'm pretty certain that it was so ridiculously un-feasible that there was never a set of such armor made(even ceremonial armor), even for any kind of female royalty. If they were to wear armor, it would most likely be as Aelryinth, and I have said and they would strap themselves and pad the armor to make it work. then again, most women at that time weren't as naturally busty as they are today. So, such things may have been a minor issue for most women of the times when such armor was worn.
Thank you!... my whole idea came from the idea of a contoured breastplate. though not as effective as others, it sure looked cool. the contour of which I spoke would be over padding creating a "uni-boob" effect.
As for not being a Stygian Slayer, first I'd never heard of it before (for the following reason), and I just have an inherent distaste for the hybrid classes. I don't fault anyone for loving and playing them, but to me they just leave a bad taste in my mouth.
I am now curious why that would that be. I have found the Hybrid classes filling some concepts I was looking for in other class/multiclass builds and wasn't able to pass off other things.I love the ninja, and would like to see more compatibility integration. (EDIT: sorry i'll leave unchained out of it... forgot to do so till I was correcting my first post.)
I like the Ninja build you have here: it looks to be something fun. I hope it works out well.
Moonlight Stalker tree actually looks pretty attractive, but it needs racial low-light/darkvision unfortunately and I'm pretty devoted to human.
blood of dragons trait can give you lowlight vision for that prerequisite. with reactionary as the first it would really flavor your character nicely. just my: (penny)(penny)
(This is incidentally why 'boob plate' for women is bad, since the ridges concentrate the points of impact of attacks, instead of spreading them out evenly)
Quite frankly I'd never realistically expect women to wear "boob-plate" since it was most likely designed by gamers who wanted sexier women in combat and were not really concerned with any form of realism.Besides I'm pretty sure that any plate worn by Joan-of-Arc (or other woman-warriors) was simply padded to accommodate her particularly womanly anatomy... that is if it was even an issue that particular woman.
Sadly the idea of boob-plate stuck: Mind you: if I were a curvaceous woman about to battle in custom-made full-plate, I'd probably want to have some accommodation in the plate, but it would most-likely end up as a mild contour. not a jutting curve with any kind of seam.
Since we're on such a topic on a discussion about katanas we may as well consider it thoroughly.

That seems like a tremendously bad idea.
it probably is... but i cannot stop it now. as was mentioned later, it would be best do have willing Players if a PC is going to be pregnant, and everyone else would have to be at least willing to go along with it. I figure it is much like having a child PC in the group. if the other players are okay with it, then it would lend some reality to the fantasy world that is being created, because life isn't always optimal in when things happen. a child should grow up to become an adventurer, but tis not always the case, additionally, a female adventurer may find that her romantic relationship has "stepped up" and she is now dealing with still being in danger, and adventuring whilst carrying a child inutero or in her arms. perhaps the GM gould have meant for it to happen as part of the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy... or something like that... the point is it is something i would like to get a good idea for before putting it to use/ proposing it to a GM.
Wow. i guess there really is more to Pathfinder than Star Wars RPG. Glad I converted. GM arbitration aside. i feel it would be easier to IGE the effects of pregnancy on adventurers. Fun Stuff.
I don't know if there's any mechanics out there, or if such a thing has been discussed before, but I'm wanting to figure out how to run a pregnant character in the terms of game mechanics/effects. I asked this question on a site and for a system that was way oversimplified in the terms of IGE. As a result, I cannot simply convert it. I know it's ultimately up to the GM to arbitrate, but i would like an idea as to how to mechanics it before I try anything.
If you're looking for something along the lines of a battle-mech suit using the AT-ST walker Stats (from the Saga Edition of the Star Wars RPG)(WoC) as a basis for what you're looking for... it's essentially the same as making a vehicle that has a walking speed, instead of wheels or tracks, and is powered by anything from magic to fusion reactors to something in-between. just my two cents.
Large characters would be prime for a hurler type of character. throwing stuff around and applying STR to your ranged attacks in combination with a reaching melee would make a formidable force.
In the Advanced Player's Guide There is a feat: "Extra Rouge Talent" There are other iterations of this feat in the Advanced Class Guide for the Slayer, and Investigator classes. My concern comes with the Ninja Class: There is neither an iteration of the "Extra Rouge Talent" Feat, Nor a clarification allowing the ninja to simply take the "Extra Rouge Talent" Feat for extra ninja tricks. At least none that I've found. i could use some direction, or clarification.
