Knowing you're a fan of The Dark Crystal, did you watch the Age of Resistance prequel show? And if so, what did you think of it?

Are long, metal tubes especially attractive to demons? Are there more demons in tubes than in the general population?

Asking all these Elder Scrolls questions has got me itching to get back into it...should I try out the older games like Arena and Daggerfall? I can get them for free and free is always good, but others are telling me it's not worth the frustration of dealing with the book-keeping and the clunky interface...What are your thoughts, as someone who's played in the series from the beginning (My start wasn't until Morrowind, the nominal third game)?

I'm intrigued, though I'd want some clarification as to just HOW bantrids wear armor (or clothes for that matter) without hampering their unique method of locomotion. Would bantrid armor generate an airtight force-field around their sphere so they can roll around without exposing themselves to the vacuum of space? Specialized material that mimics their sphere's surface? Or do they just go "screw it, I'm takin' Power Armor Proficiency so I can just put my rolling-chair in a mini-mech!"?

Honestly, these are questions bantrids had to figure out shortly after they woke up!

"How do we adapt the exisiting technology of our neighbors so we can get off our homeworld and properly introduce ourselves to the galaxy?"

I didn't think the dirindi were too silly, honestly. You gave them some seriousness too in that they appreciate and in fact REALLY pay attention to the distinction between exaggerated truth (which is okay to them) and outright falsehood (which most emphatically is NOT okay to them).

I know they were one of the first species in AA3 that stood out to me and made me go "Wow, I wanna play as one of these!"

Especially since I imagine them to kinda talk like BRIAN BLESSED! :P

When you've played Elder Scrolls games, have you ever headcanoned that your character in one game is related to your character in another game?

You know, like, "My Dragonborn is the great-grandchild of my Nerevarine" or something?

Good. One of my favorite fantasy settings. Been playing games there since "Arena" came out back in the early 90s, after all!

What ancestry's your favorite to play as?

Aroden wasn't really a god of prophecy, though. The only related concept in his sphere of influence was "fulfillment of destiny." Prophecy was Pharasma's sphere of influence. The hypothesis still kind of stands, though (especially given that Pharasma's servant, Echo of Lost Divinity, has an uncanny resemblance to Aroden and has a suspiciously specific denial that they are Aroden).

Personally I choose to believe that Aroden was becoming an evil, human supremacist deity, so a cabal of other gods made a move against him. Think about it, slavery (especially of the other, "lesser" races) was common in Azlant. These beliefs made it to Old Cheliax, surely due to the "God of Humanity" as he was called. Hell, the Starfall Doctrine even talks about that(Old) Cheliax would become the pre-eminent nation of the world and he would lead humans to a newfound age of peace and justice. I think it'd be highly likely that the precursor of that would've been a lot of slavery and one of two genocides.

I think the "Iomedae is actually EVIL because of that thing what happened in Wrath of the Righteous!" would have a FIELD DAY with that idea. They could spin an entire theory that Iomedae aided this plot ostensibly because she thought he was gonna become evil but really just so she could take his place. T_T

I don't agree with it, and think the Gray Gardeners are good guys, but maybe they're just doing too good a job of hiding it for me to notice.

The example Gray Gardener from the Inner Sea NPC Codex is a NE Inquisitor of Norgorber. That's what got me wondering if Norgorber had connections to them and started me down this particular rabbit hole, actually.

Norgorber, maybe? One of the few things capable of killing a god would be another god, and as a god of assassination it wouldn't be out of character for him.

I have other reasons for believing this as well, but they're more related to my conspiracy theory that Galt's Gray Gardeners are a front for Norgorber's church and they're deliberately keeping Galt from stabilizing to perpetuate a culture of violence, misery and paranoia that thieves, assassins, poisoners and serial killers can thrive in, as opposed to the prophecy in the Book of 1,000 Whispers that "Galiti shall be liberated from the rule of the Crown and become a bastion of peace, prosperity, and learning." All while pulling off the ultimate heist by stealing souls from Pharasma via the final blades!

In a new golden age, there'd probably be no place for a god like Norgorber, so maybe he assassinated Aroden to make Golarion a playground for his kind instead...

I don't know whether to be delighted at Velloro's story or jealous of it...knowing I can't play a cool korasha lashunta vanguard who was adopted by ysoki and grew up on Akiton, worships Iomedae and was trained as gladiator by a shobhad mentor and had a spiritual breakthrough atop the Pillar of the Sky...at least, not without being accused of copying Velloro.

Gotta echo what others are saying here. Cayden's perspective is definitely "Why would you buy and manumit slaves when you could start a slave revolt instead?!" Slavery's evil is probably the ONE thing he, a god of not taking things too seriously, takes VERY seriously.

How do I tread the line between "trying to make a PC that fits seamlessly into the narrative of an Adventure Path but ends up being boring because of it" and "trying to make a PC that's interesting to me but ends up not having any connection to the AP's narrative at all?"

And how do I actually have fun with the game instead feeling the delusional anxiety that one of my old English professors will come out of a well to publically shame me for crafting sub-par narratives with it?

Given I'm playing a Drow, whose bonuses don't align as well with Technomancer as other species (and have a CON penalty to compensate for on top of that), and Solar Disciple boosts WIS, which isn't a prominent stat for them, I imagine I'll have to do what you do and focus on auto-hits and buffs. the best stat array I can think of for 1st level is:

STR 14 DEX 12 CON 10 INT 14 WIS 11 CHA 12

I am tempted by Improved Trip, especially since I can give the junksword more flavor by having it look like a drow hook sword...

What other spells should I look into IN ADDITION to junksword so, as you say, I have enough juice to not be a one-trick pony? ;)

True, the same GMs who'd do that are probably the same GMs who'd have enemies try to sunder the soldier's weapons in each fight...

If I do that then, I presume I'd no longer need Advanced Weapon Proficiency, Weapon Focus and Versatile Specialization, since I wouldn't be swinging a plasma sword or wailing blade around. What would be good feats to take instead, and just in general for the melee playstyle?

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Can't a spellcaster whose reasonably my character's equal or better basically LOLNOPE such a weapon via dispel magic, though?

After being recruited into a Dawn of Flame game, I've been given a chance to remake the character I entered, and what I want to do is remake them into a Technomancer who isn't afraid to get into melee, similar to old-school Pathfinder's Magus class.

Here's the basics of what I have so far.

Species: Drow
Theme: Solar Disciple
Archetype: Star Knight (Knights of Golarion)

I know this isn't a PERFECT set-up for such a character by any stretch, but I can't change these without basically making a new character, and I'm prepared to own the consequences of that.

What spells and magic hacks would best suit a melee-oriented playstyle? I know the various junkspells can get things like swords and armor, but I feel like if I used those I'd basically have to build the entire character around those spells, which I'm hesitant to do. The alternative would most likely be taking Advanced Weapon Prof, then Weapon Focus and Versatile Specialization as my initial few feats.

What options should I look at? Thank you in advance!

Now I’m wondering if the Order of the Torrent might hunt slavers.
I'd say yeah, especially if they didn't have absolutely all the paperwork showing the slave was "legally" acquired at every step of the way. Moreso since Kintargo's independence.

That's also something that was initially part of the Order of the Chain's schtick, more or less exactly how you described it, with the caveat being that they also hunted amd returned escaped slaves with equal fervor. I might be wrong but I believe that aspect eventually got superceded by the Chain's current description as bounty-hunters-extraordinaire, making it more palatable as an order for PCs so they don't have to condone slavery in-character (this is a good thing, as far as I'm concerned).

Kind of confused about the morlamaw blocks. Both the base morlamaw and the morlamaw mayor have spell-like abilities, but neither are casting classes, neither have feats that grant them like Psychic Power or Stage Magic and their Species Traits doesn't list any spell-like abilities like it does for others like the hanakans or sazarons. Where are the morlamaws getting these SPAs exactly?
