Hello, I got the confirmation email from Paizo that the my order went through, when I check my downloads I notice that I can only download Pathfinder Lost Omens World Guide as a file per chapter instead of as a single file, can this be fixed?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

That's pretty much it.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I subscribed to Pathfinder Adventure Path and Pathfinder Campaign Setting, and I'd like to start with Pathfinder Adventure Path #145: Hellknight Hill and Pathfinder Lost Omens World Guide as the first Items of that subscription, according to my sidecart the adventure path seems to be in order but for some reason the Campaing Setting subscription seems to be starting on the wrong item.

Thanks

I am looking for a good module from Paizo to convert to second edition once the game comes out, it also has to be a module that can be done in one or two sessions. I am looking for something that has interesting encounters in both exploration and combat. I would also like to avoid the We Be Goblin modules since at least one of the players is pretty familiar with them. I am not too familiar with the Modules line from paizo so list your favorite 1 sesion modules they have.

So how far off are the rules to play as Orcs in 2e?

So Giant Instinct bumps rage damage from a +2 to a +6 according to Jason Bulmahn in the latest episode of Known Direction. That seems like a great damage bonus for a level 1 Character

Dear Paizo Team is the Ogre Hook in the final version of the CRB or Bestiary?

Can I create an Ogre Hook wielding PC at launch?

I am attempting to start a subscription for the Adventure Paths but no matter what I do it wont let me start with Age of Ashes 1 instead the system insist I start my subscription with Pathfinder Adventure Path #144: Midwives to Death (Tyrant's Grasp 6 of 6). Any help?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Whenand where was it anounced, teased?

Yes I realise that its too late too post this, but I didnt give much thought to this idea until now. But here it is anyway.

Instead of having composite weapons we could have had all ranged weapons (that are not thrown) just add half your strength to damage. On the other hand we could have a mechanical property added to Crossbows that makes it so that since it is a mechanism firing for you, you never add the str modifier from the character. This way bows and crossbows dont compete with each other since a character chooses them depending on their str modifiers and it is no longer needed for crossbows to take one action to load.
So if crossbows and slings are both simple a character would choose one over the other depending on str, the huge dice on some crossbows can also be a reason to pick them over bows even with a positive str Mod.

And this could have been useful during the playtest period, but oh well.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Are we likely to see one before the Holidays?

So I ran Doomsday Dawn first adventure among my PC's there was a Monk, and he was really underwhelmed by the monks ACs, during the game he was the first to go down and was afraid to actually get in the thick of it due to his low AC.
he thinks Monks armor is too low and I have to agree they should be able to add some kind of bonus at certain levels to make their AC at least as good as Light Armor. As it stands the Monk has worse armor of any martial class reducing their staying power in a fight.

Martials need better Feat Options specially at levels 10 and above. As it stands there is little incentive not to multiclass into a caster class. Martials get their toys either late, broken or with some assembly required, all of which make it easy to be left behind in a table with Players that are either playing casters or multiclassing into one.

Some feats for martials have questionable restrictions like the duration of the fear effect on Intimidating Strike for the Fighter which only functions seems to be setting up Shatter Defenses instead of being a solid option on its own merits.

Some feats are acquired way too late like the Rangers Powerful Snare that feels like something that should be available way before level 10. In addition there is also the problem of some martials having late or worse options than the casters like Rangers getting Full-Grown Companion and Specialized companion two levels later than the Druid for no aparent reason.

My last issue is that there are some feats that seem incomplete just to make the player invest in two different feats to get the desired result, an example of this is Felling Strike and Sudden Leap, this one example is particularly problematic since those are both level 8 feats which is a major investment on a character at that level and the effects of both feats combined can easily be recreated by a level 5 Wizard casting Earthbind, this means that a Fighter needs to spend a level 8 and a level 10 feat (and spend one more action) to do what a wizard could do at level 5, which is not fun.

Not everything is bad though, things like the Fighter's Mirror Shield and the Barbarian's Dragon Totem Wings seems really fun and serve as evidence of the improvements that martials have undergone since first edition and I hope this means we'll see even more improvement when the second edition is released.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Would a feat that allows monks to add Strenth to AC and TAC instead of Dexterity whilie unarmored or lightly armored be feasable?
If so could we also have this for Barbarians?
If it isnt could we use Constitution to AC instead?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I would like to change my payment method for this order, and pay with the other credit card that I have in my account

I actually like the way the new archetypes are being implemented, but I do not like how the prerequisites are being use for the class feats. I'd much rather have the prerequisites for an archetype feat be to have x amounts of feats in the archetype than a specific feat. For example for Roll with the Ship I'd rather have: For this feat you need to have at least 2 Feats from the pirate archetype. And for a feat like Boarding Action you can add a caveat that if you have Rope Runner you can use this feat While swinging on a rope.

By doing it this way you can add player customability while still limiting acces to the more powerfull feats and so preventing people from just taking the archetype at high levels to get the more powerful feats

In an interview with Gameinformer Jason Bulmahn revealed that Pathfinder is sticking to Vancian Spellcasting though I don't believe that this is an inherently bad idea I think that players will be better served by slightly modifying the spell preparation system in two ways.

First, allow for a single spell to be used multiple times without having to prepare it multiple times. When I introduce the game to new players that want to play a wizard the idea of having to prepare burning hands multiple times if they wanted to use it more than once is always met with resistance and disappointment, so this is a particular feature of Pathfinder that I hope is fixed with the second edition.

Second, allow for heightened spells to be prepared just once and also be cast at whatever level the caster wants to, instead of preparing a level 5 Fireball, it'd be best to simply prepare a Fireball and allow the caster to decide in what level to cast it in the moment, that way more room is opened to pick more spells. Or at the very least If a caster prepares a level 5 Fireball allow it to be cast at level 3 or 4 by spending the appropriate spell slot this way the player is saved from having to prepare multiple versions of the same spell.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Will we see a Barbarian with decent AC without the use of armor similar to how the Monks do it?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Pretty much that, is there an AP where a villainous Dragon is the main antagonist of the story?
I know that Dragons do appear as villains and enemies in some of the APs. But is there one where the Dragon is the actual "Big Bad" at the end of the story, and not just a pawn of the actual villain?

I like alignments and I'd like for them to be kept in PF2 and after reading through another thread about this topic I realized that there is some disagreement in what each Alignment means so maybe it does need to be better codified in PF2.

Here is how I codify Alignment in my table:

Law Chaos Axis:

Lawful: You believe in a structured society, you likely put time and effort into maintaining order. Even if you are not a law enforcer you adhere to the laws as best you can.

Chaos: You live outside of the Law, you are a criminal or an anarchist. Rules only get on your way, or in some cases they present you with opportunities to make a profit by breaking them.

Neutral: You are not particularly interested in following or breaking the law. You likely enjoy the benefits of a structured society but put little to no effort in enforcing its laws. You might enjoy some of the profits of doing business with those who break the law but you yourself have no interest in breaking it.

Good Evil Axis:

While I define the Law and evil Axis as your role in society the good and evil axis I often refer as the limits a character is willing to go to to achieve their Goal.

Good: You value life and individual rights. You are not willing to harm innocents.

Neutral: You are willing to harm innocents and even take their lives, but only in the most dire circumstances.

Evil: Sometime innocents have to give their lives for you to accomplish your goals. Some rights have to be abolished or violated for your goals to be met.

Examnples:
Any Lawful: A barkeep who refuses to serve a man who he knows is paying with ill gotten money.
Lawful Good: A soldier refusing orders to kill enemies that already surrendered.
Lawful Neutral: A Soldier attacking the countryside of an enemy nation to capture its crops.
Lawful Evil: A squad of soldiers invading a the villa of a philosopher who criticize the government.

Neutral Good: A man who is willing to buy stolen items as long as he knows no one was harmed in the process.
Neutral: A man selling swords to know criminals, appeasing his conscience with the idea that the criminal would just find another seller.
Neutral Evil: A businessman having a competitor killed.

Chaotic Good: A smuggler getting items across the border without paying the tariff.
Chaotic Neutral: A thief who is willing to hurt people to avoid getting caught but would rather not hurt anyone.
Chaotic Evil: An assassin that does not care who she kills as long as she gets paid.

Any Neutral or Evil: A witch sacrificing innocents in a ritual to avoid the awakening of a dark god

Caveats:

Lawful does not mean you follow the law no matter the circumstance, a lawful person who believes that the government is unfair or ineffective is likely to be willing to do something about it even if that means open rebellion.

Chaos does not mean you do whatever you want just because you can, chaos means you live outside the law.

Evil people can have good intentions, they just do terrible things to achieve them.

Evil has limits too: An evil character that is willing to kill innocents can also be unwilling to harm children

Evil and Good can work together: Two Knights one LE and the other LG can serve the same master and they can even be friends with one another but one of them is also willing to stomp a town out of existence to advance the goals of her liege. Though the other one may find that deed hard to forgive.

Just things I'd like to see in the 2e Cavalier:

Challenge: I don't know the math of 2e so I cannot comment on how damage should work but making you flatfooted against any enemy but the target of the challenge sounds thematic and cool.

Tactician: I'd like a change to tactician, what about giving up an action to let a companion take one action on the cavalier's turn, maybe in later levels the cavalier can give a bonus to the companion's action like move an extra 5 feet or a bonus to hit.

Orders: They are thematically cool so no complains there.

Mount: Why can't my halfling choose a dog at lvl 1? why cant my Orc choose a boar?
I am of half a mind that the mounted cavalier should be an archetype, but with all the modularity I expect from 2e I hope that it will be optional along with all the charges.

Banner: Awesome idea, but why only fear saves and not all will saves?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

So the description only says that ranged weapons can be mounted on the slots but if does not specify if Two-Handed weapons can be installed or not. Is it possible for example to install a Heavy Reaction Cannon on my armor?
The Jarlslayer has a missile battery on its back,is it possible for me to equip my armor with heavy weapons on shoulder mounts or the back?

The Bugbear Tyrant in the monster Codex has a Feat called Cruel Opportunist that is marked with * but that feat does not appear on the book, i also could not find this feat Online


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

so does a medium character takes any penalty for using a small heavy flail as a one handed weapon?

i'd use a normal flail but the heavy flail has a better crit range than the flail for some reason


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Ok so some time ago i asked the forum if martials really needed nicer things the answer was a resounding YES! I still belive that the disparity betwee caster and martials can be played arround as long as the roles dont overlap but im here to talk abot the disparity between martials. When Pathfinder Unchained book was anounced i found it strange that they put the barbarian on the book instead of the cavalier, the barbarian since day one has had things that'd make even the fighters moutht water the cavalier on the other hand only has rehashed features from other classes some of them like mount actually work for the class flavor most of them don't and tactician the truly innovative feature that is his own is limited in a way that makes it really hard to use.
Now ill write my small fixes to some of the martial classes that are in need of some help starting with the cavalier.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Hey i need to cancel my sumbscription to the ap for now
thanks


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

i've become intrested in purchacing Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Inner Sea Races in both a hard copy and a pdf, is there a bundle i could use to buy both at a discounted price or is the only way to get both at an afordable price to subscribe to the Campaign Setting.
But since the only book im really intrested in buying is the Inner Sea Races i wouldnt really keep the subscription, so is it ok to subscribe just to cancel once i get the book?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

i gravitate toward martial characters not only dont i mind caster being overwhelmingly more powerful than martials i expect it, yeah a wizard can break the game post lvl 10 but he'd never reach that lvl without the big bad fighter watching his back and to me that's part of the fun a fighter has to rely on the wizard the same way the wizard had to rely on the fighter early on
now i do believe there are some disparities among martial themselves and i do believe they have some mechanics that were purposely held back
(fighters bravery and cavaliers tactician come to mind) but overall i enjoy the shift of power on the mid/high levels and also you have to admit it so rewarding when the fighter downs that sneaky invisible flying firebomb hurling alchemist with a lucky shot of his bow

hello
my order did not arrive, and thats been happening somewhat frequently,
is there a problem at my end?

I've been waiting for this

hey
my order never arrived and i'd like to know my tracking number since my courrier is asking for it


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I really like the idea of the Cavalier class but there is something holding it back (mechanically) and its the fact that it can only grant the bonus teamworks, so i give you my Homebrewed Cavalier

Tactician (Ex): At 1st level, a cavalier receives a teamwork feat as a bonus feat. He must meet the prerequisites for this feat. As a standard action, the cavalier can grant any known Teamwork feat to all allies within 30 feet who can see and hear him. Allies retain the use of this bonus feat for 3 rounds plus 1 round for every two levels the cavalier possesses. Allies do not need to meet the prerequisites of these bonus feats. The cavalier can use this ability once per day at 1st level, plus one additional time per day at 5th level and for every 5 levels thereafter.
Greater tactician at 10th lvl instead of 9th (that way you can get the feat coordinate charge without having to class deep)

and this feat
Impoved Tactics:
prereq: BAB 5, tactician class feature
A Character with the Tactician class feature can use it an aditional times per day equal to its INT or Cha Modifier wichever is higher.

its a simle fix that does not break the class (i think)
so what do you guys think?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

"Sniping: If you've already successfully used Stealth at least 10 feet from your target, you can make one ranged attack and then immediately use Stealth again. You take a –20 penalty on your Stealth check to maintain your obscured location."

Does this mean that after making an attack i need to take a -20 penalty to keep myself hidden, regardlees if i move or not.

Does it matter if my character is at a vantage point, behind cover and over 60ft away

i'd like to cancel my subscription to Pathfinder Roleplaying Game,

"These claws are treated as natural weapons, allowing you to make two claw attacks as a full attack action using your full base attack bonus"

ok so does this mean that the sorcerer does not suffer penalty to hit with two weapons or does this mean that he is treated as full bab while using claws attacks?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

hello
just letting you guys know my order never arrived,
also if i preorder the stratergy guide now will i get the PDF for free?
thanks


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

ok one of the PCs in my canmpaing was killed and the player insists that he wants to play a rogue now. Usually that wouldnt be a problem, were it any of my other players rolling a character i wouldn't be here, but this guy he is anothe story he is kind of clueless when it comes to combat, so im afraid that a rogue may be way too fragile for him. At the moment a goblin would make perfect sense for the choice race for the character.
so what i need is for you to help me build a character that does not rely on fancy triks to do damage im thinking slashing grace is a must, or maybe two agile kukris (he'll definitely insist on dex based damage)

feats or rogue talent that focus in combat are what im mostly looking for but some other rogue talents that heve good utility would also be apreciated
Apg and core are the only rulebooks i own so i'd like to focus on those options but if there is an option from other rulebook that is a must i will consider it Please avoid 3pp if posible
Thanks

last sunday i ran a sesion of Rise of the runelords, it was a sidequest that took place during the players journey to Jorgenfist, weve been on a hiatus for a couple of months but the sesion proceded smoothly, the PCs were trying to get inside a kobold lair to recover a cargo that was stolen from traveling merchant the lair turned out to be a trap filled laboratory of a lone kobold alchemist,the fight was hard and long the pc fighted fiercly even when they were given a chance to surrender in a fight i knew they pretty much couldnt win, exept the did.
The point is i was so sure they couldnt win, they shouldnt win that i forgot what the game is about that its not me vs them, i prolonged that fight a little more than was needed and though there were no real negative effects since my players enjoyed the sesion (they like challenging battles) i kind of lost sight of the big picture
The message of this rant is always root for your players its not about you vs them
