What a crazy random happenstance.

Just happened to acquire a graveknight in our last sessions, curious to see where this thread goes before my next session.

What a frustrating book, I don't need it at all in any shape or form, but it's now the only hardcover pathfinder book I don't own.

Gotta collect them all.

I adore this product, thank you for making it.

Oh hey while your here.

Download includes TWO files: a full color version AND a stripped black and white version for easy printing, both versions hyperlinked internally and to online Pathfinder resources for easy interactive reference.

Much love.

Hey guys, I don't normally buy PDFs of RPG stuff and prefer the Hardcovers, but recently I come across a few smaller 3rd Party PDFs have I have fallen in love with, specifically:

Spes Magna Games: Making Crafting Work


Zombie Sky Press: Incantations in Theory and Practice

I am curious to know if you guy have any more recommendations of stuff in this vein, inexpensive alternate rules or good additional content that is easy to print out.

How DOES one go about treating insanity (via the Pathfinder rules system)? Is there rules for curing it? Does a Heal spell cure one particular type of madness or would you have to rely on more powerful magic (aka Miracle or Wish) for it to work?

Lesser restoration has no effect on insanity, but restoration reduces the current DC of one insanity currently affecting a target by an amount equal to the caster's level. Greater restoration, heal, limited wish, miracle, or wish immediately cures a target of all insanity.

Well, I do get ridiculed for this one quite a bit but.

Background: Were on some giant cliche fantasy tree trying to get a magic nut for some reason.

So I am faffing about looking at spells and whatnot while my compatriots are figuring out how to get one of the nuts at the end of the long tree branch.

I miss the part where they tie themselves to a branch in-case they fall.

So the half-ling rogue easily makes his way to the nut on the tree which is a part I heard clearly

easily. makes it. to the nut.

And he tries to cut it, but his mundane weapon will not sever it from the tree, we deduce we need a magic weapon to do so. Hey I have a magic scythe I proclaim and I saunter over there. Someone says "Hey you want a rope?" to which I respond "naw, s'all good". Walk halfway to the nut and told to make a balance check. "Wait what? Is it slippery or something?" and then I am told "Uh yeah, and less than a foot wide, remember?" Okay, well I am a cleric in half-plate...attempting to I slip, okay reflex to grab on, And I fall to my death. And as I fall all I hear from the rogue is:

Hey you want that rope now?

Donjon makes a very cool random dungeon generator if you want something that lacks sense but is needed in a hurry. I usually take the dungeons and edit them a bit in photoshop myself.

Strolen's Citadel has a very good article on the "5 Room Dungeon" I recommend you read over.

I know I have skimmed Horizon Walker in the past and never really thought much of it, but this thread made me read over it a bit more carefully and wow. That is certainly where my Fighter/Chevalier is headed next.

That line, which i clearly missed in the past makes all the difference.

Some spells allow you to redirect the effect to new targets or areas after you cast the spell. Redirecting a spell is a move action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity

Since the spell doesn't say specifically I would rule it defaults to this general rule.

In my setting there isn't really an existence of classes, for the most part.

I can't see any reason why a Cleric or Ranger couldn't be called a Druid based on the definition of Druid and not the class description of one.

Ditto for Barbarians, Paladins, Cavaliers, Monks and Rogues all being just forms of Fighters.

This thread made me brush up on the alignment descriptions. What I walked away with was that a Barbarian can fall for being truthful and honoring tradition, jeez. Wonder if that has ever happened in any game.

Hey, I don't suppose any of you guys still have this and can re-host it eh? All of the links seem to be dead and I think a flow chart would be the bees knees.

I don't necessarily BAN books, but since I am the only person that owns them all I just choose what books to bring.

There are certainly classes that are not used, summoner and gunslinger and alchemist. This was a combination of people agreeing to not allow them, not just me as GM. The only book that I don't like people using for new character creation is the Advanced Race Guide, player groups of rare demi-humans and monstrous creatures rubs me the wrong way.

Since you can enchant ammunition, could you use arrows with your improvised weapon feats? You bypass the "can't enchant non-weapons" bit, and I haven't seen anything that says item qualities go away if you use the item differently - for example, they don't stop being Cold Iron if you use them in melee.

We know the magic isn't tied to the bow, because the bow doesn't have to be magic to benefit from the arrow's enhancement bonus.

They'd be the exception rather than the rule, of course.

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, as far as I can tell, yes.

Arrows can be made from various materials.
Arrows can be masterwork
Arrows can be enchanted
Arrows are improvised weapons when used in melee and act as a dagger of the same size.

I would assume the arrow still loses its enchantment when you hit someone with it though, so grab the quickdraw feat so you can pull another out of your quiver as a free action

1 person marked this as a favorite.

So If I were to make a Quick Draw, Improved Disarm, Catch Off Guard, Improvised Weapon mastery Rogue for some sweet sweet sneak attacks the best thing to use sounds like Arrows, is this correct?

Arrows when used in melee are improvised weapons that can be masterwork for the +1 to hit instead of a +2 to a skill, Adamantine AND enchanted normally?

A cleric being able to heal all his allies is hardly cheesy.

Selective Channel
Command Undead
Control Undead

Least thats the way I would go, big ass undead armies lead by vampires for the win?

Also if your party members get lippy you can command them >_>

After spending what seems to be way too much time on the rules and advice forums I feel that there is Flag option that is severely lacking: Flagging posts that are clearly (or not so clearly) just made to stir up arguments and rile people up.

There is a big difference in posting something that people can discuss and even debate the merits of, but posts soley to be annoying should have no place here.

An example of this is The continuation of the magic shop thread. While it may have been his intent to actually talk about magic shops if you read through the thread it is basically just an argument on whether or not the OP likes pathfinder or if he's spamming the boards with anti-magic threads.

Hit Points (hp): Hit points are an abstraction signifying how robust and healthy a creature is at the current moment. To determine a creature's hit points, roll the dice indicated by its Hit Dice. A creature gains maximum hit points if its first Hit Die roll is for a character class level. Creatures whose first Hit Die comes from an NPC class or from his race roll their first Hit Die normally. Wounds subtract hit points, while healing (both natural and magical) restores hit points. Some abilities and spells grant temporary hit points that disappear after a specific duration. When a creature's hit points drop below 0, it becomes unconscious. When a creature's hit points reach a negative total equal to its Constitution score, it dies.

I love playing the healer.

And I make damn sure my Cleric/Radiant Servant of Pelor is the best damn healer he can be!

Though i find I don't need to heal all that often now that that particular campaign has gotten a lot more political and less dungeon crawly.

I came in here expecting this to be about how his players named their catfolk and ratfolk characters Tom and Jerry for some reason... :/

I like using Skaven as well, I have a huge dislike on for catfolk so one has never come up in my game to give a better name too.

Heh... I've got about 80,000 words written already for a post-apocalyptic game, in fact. It's a science-fiction/fantasy hybrid though (sort of Fallout meets the Dark Tower meets Lovecraft), not just fantasy (like Dark Sun).

I like all the words you just said compiled in the order you said them.

Section compiled by Chow'd Mouse with dead links removed

Caveat: None of this stuff is mine so not responsible for any of it in any way, shape, or form. I'm running RotR at the moment so had a reason to keep it up to date and felt keeping it updated for the community might be useful as this AP may get more interest in the next few months (though you may like your updated APs shinier.) :) If anyone sees something that should not be here let the group know.

In addition, some of this is not suitable for work (for example stuff related to Tsuto's journal) so ye be warned.

I hope the community finds this useful.

Why are you paying $14 in taxes for a $26 dollar book?

Because almost all their normal hardcovers are $26 on amazon and they have free shipping for $25 or if your paying $40 a pop your doing it wrong.

Palladium books are even cheaper...last one I bought in a FLGS (always more expensive than online) was $18 (Triax 2 earlier this year)

I think your raging at an imaginary enemy homey.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Out of all the RPGs out there I am surprised you chose THIS to be the expensive one...the one with cheap PDFs and FREE online resources.

There are plenty of free RPGs out there if you cannot afford pathfinder.
Eclipse Phase, Burning Wheel, OSIRIC and D6 to name a few.

The Pathfinder books CAN be had for $20-30 via Amazon or just a bit more (due to shipping) if you subscribe here.

Optional materials such as battlemaps and miniatures all raise the price but they can also be replaced entirely with free or really cheap things and are totally not necessary.

I just started GMing a RotRLAE game and have a Gnome and a Dwarf, both of which have those racial abilities and I don't think its metagamey at all to make your favored enemy goblins and giants even though you haven't "encountered" them yet. Hating them is just part of being a dwarf.

I don't really think of myself as a rules lawyer, but more of just a rules database.

I'm usually the guy who the group turns too when a rule is in debate before anyone reaches for a book.

I sometimes have a habit of speaking out when someone gets something blatantly wrong but im also the first the shut up when the GM says "yes but i'm going to do it this way".
