Unencumbered means you aren't carrying more than a Light Load, per Carrying Capacity rules

Much thanks.


In Ultimate Wilderness (p. 27) it states that the shifter must be "unencumbered" to gain certain benefits. Does "unencumbered" even allow for a cold weather outfit?

Thanks.

Minor edit: changed "gear" to "outfit"

Seducer Witch is charisma based, and prepared iirc.

Much thanks to both of you!


Which 5th level charisma-based (arcane, divine, occult) casters can cast 3rd level spells? I believe that the feyspeaker druid can but I cannot think of anything else.

Thanks for your knowledge!

I've allowed an "Unchained" Ninja in a past campaign and we didn't have a problem with them. We played that campaign from 1st to 7th level.

However as two separate classes, I consider the Unchained Rogue to be vastly superior.

Aside from the ki pool the unchained rogue is just simply better than the ninja.


Is there any artwork online with darkleaf items (e.g. armor, clothing)?

Is it a coincidence that "Calistria" is an anagram for "satirical"?


Looking for advice for a bonded item for my ecclesitheurge. Any help is appreciated.

In PFS
ecclesitheurge of Calistria
undine with the "mostly human" and "amphibious" traits
chaotic neutral
primary domain of trickery and a secondary domain of luck
STR: 8
DEX: 10
CON: 14
INT: 12
WIS: 18
CHA: 14


I am creating a masked maiden vigilante. Thematically which (PFS) races would be best?

Thanks,

I should have been more specific. The purpose of the magic item was to have the PCs appear/detect as undead so that they would not draw attention in Geb.

Wasn't there a magic item in #2-25 that gave the PCs undead-like traits? That adventure was set in Geb.


How long does it take to put a saddle on a mount? I looked in the CRB and UE and did not see anything. I am considering purchasing a war saddle and putting it on a summoned celestial dire tiger.


Thank you both!


Does the Mammoth Hide Armor (Melee Tactics Toolbox p. 23) damage bonus apply to mounted charges? While Rhino Hide Armor (Ultimate Equipment p. 129)
specifically states that the additional damage applies to its mounted charges Mammoth Hide Armor does not.

Mammoth Hide Armor:

This +2 hide armor is made from woolly mammoth hide.
It seems to move with and bolster the wearer, and has only
a –1 armor check penalty. Once per round, when the wearer
makes a successful charge attack, the mammoth hide deals an
additional 3d6 points of damage to the target. This damage isn’t
multiplied on a critical hit or by effects that multiply the damage
of a charge, such as Spirited Charge. Mammoth hide also
protects the wearer from cold environments as the endure
elements spell.

Rhino Hide Armor:

This +2 hide armor is made from rhinoceros hide. In addition
to granting a +2 enhancement bonus to AC, it has a –1 armor
check penalty and deals an additional 2d6 points of damage
on any successful charge attack made by the wearer, including
a mounted charge.


This suggests that a far strike monk can flurry with non-monk thrown weapons (e.g. dagger). Can a far strike monk flurry with non-monk thrown weapons? I believe that the thrown monk weapons are:
dan bong
deer horn knife
lungchuan tamo
rope dart
Shuriken
Wushu dart

What provided the inspiration of The First World - Realm of the Fey? What was your involvement in Legacy of the First World?

P.S. I really like The First World - Realm of the Fey.

Thank you so much for your hard work and getting this out so incredibly soon after the publications went out the door. This is appreciated. Whoever you are, you did a wonderful job and this is a pat on the back.


Knights of the Inner Sea (p. 31) has a magic item called the War Saddle (description below). Is a large constrictor snake "appropriate shape to wear a saddle"? I believe that the First Mother's Fang cavalier archetype (Blood of the Beast pp. 17-18) can ride snakes which makes me think snakes could be mounted.

War Saddle:

Any creature of the animal or magical beast type of an appropriate shape to wear a saddle (creatures with unusual anatomies may be affected with GM discretion) can wear the war saddle, which magically changes size and shape as necessary. The saddle allows the creature wearing it to act as if it were combat trained (see the Handle Animal description on page 97 of the Core Rulebook for more information on combat training), and gives the rider a +5 competence bonus on Ride checks made while mounted upon the creature.

In this context "ability" means Str, Dex, Con, Int, Wis, Cha, and nothing else. Your natural armor bonus is safe.

Much thanks.


SorrySleeping wrote:
Natural armor is part of your total armor class. You have Dex modifier, dodge, deflection, armor, shield, natural, and size ac.

Thanks. So that means that the +2 natural armor bonus would still be in effect?


Is the increase in natural armor an ability increase? The question was asked here but not answered.

For the Agathiel Vigilante (Spymaster's Handbook p. 25)

Agathiel:
Beginning at 4th level, when an agathiel assumes his vigilante identity, he physically transforms into an animal,
though he always retains unusual traits that set him apart from ordinary animals, as if using beast shape I, except the vigilante gains no ability adjustments and can select only a single animal ability from those listed in the spell’s description. His social identity remains his true form, and unlike with beast shape I, an agathiel can remain in his animal form indefinitely. The agathiel’s vigilante identity is considered a polymorph effect

Beast Shape I:

(CRB p. 247)
When you cast this spell, you can assume the form of any Small or
Medium creature of the animal type. If the form you assume has
any of the following abilities, you gain the listed ability: climb 30 feet, fly 30 feet (average maneuverability), swim 30 feet, darkvision 60 feet, low-light vision, and scent.
Small animal: If the form you take is that of a Small animal, you
gain a +2 size bonus to your Dexterity and a +1 natural armor bonus.
Medium animal: If the form you take is that of a Medium animal, you
gain a +2 size bonus to your Strength and a +2 natural armor bonus.


There are some four and five star GMs in my area who have played for years and are running out of PFS adventures to play. Do you have any recommendations for a third-party adventure that would be no more than six hours?

Thanks!

No. Because the "good" elemental lords are dead, not imprisoned. They were murdered LONG ago by the evil ones.
Did you change your mind on this?
I didn't... but others made the decision moot for me by developing the storyline in a different way.
So which developer is bringing back Aroden?
Let's keep questions to honest questions, not snarky ones.

Unfortunately, I'm serious. I thought that you had absolute control of this type of thing.

Is "The Green Man" the same deity that is mentioned in the D&D module Beyond the Crystal Cave?

Could a War Saddle be used on a summoned creature of the animal or magical beast subtypes to make it combat trained?


Does anyone have suggestions for a commission artist to draw a ratfolk character?

I wish it didn't force you to do the stupid book-smiting thing.

I mean, as an option, OK... But pretty ridiculous and hyper specific a trope,
so at least allow use of your deity's favored weapon if not any Weapon Focus.

You can add "spell storing" and "holy" weapon qualities to the book. You'll have a holy spell storing book. How cool is that? Adding "dancing" would rock.

I guess that I will wait and see if Sacrament Alchemist ever becomes PFS legal.

It's still Wisdom based.

And unfortunately, since you only have a 7 Wisdom, you can't take the Believer's Boon feat for it.

Thanks. Any thoughts on what would work?


I have a sorcerer/mesmerist who would like to take a dip in to something granting access to the Luck domain. This character has a 7 wisdom. The number of uses per day (Bit of Luck) would have to be keyed off of a stat other than wisdom. I thought that the occultist “reliquarian” archetype would base the number of uses off of INT but am having doubts as to whether that would work as it appears that this would still be wisdom-based. Any thoughts are appreciated.

The rage power is in effect only when you're in a barbarian rage.

The bloodrager power is in effect only when you're in a bloodrage.

They're separate abilities. You have to activate both to get the benefits of both. And they don't stack much; most of their bonuses are Morale. Most of the drawbacks do stack. However, the 1d6 extra damage is untyped and comes from different sources, so that would stack. Just remember that you'll be spending rage rounds from both pools and the post-rage fatigue will stack to exhausted.

Thank you. I was 90% certain that this was a bad idea. Now I know.

If a barbarian with the barbarian rage power of

bloodline would the bonus damage for evil outsiders stack to be 2d6? The fact that Angelic Attacks can (sometimes) stack (as per the ACG P. 19) has me asking this question.

Is "Summoned by the Faithful" on pages 30 and 31 of the Monster Summoner’s Handbook PFS legal? I have looked at Additional Resources which says the following about the Monster Summoner’s Handbook

Additional Resources:

Archetypes: All archetypes on pages 6-8 and 16-17 are legal for play except the monster tactician; Bardic Performance: the performances on page 15 are legal for play Feats: all feats on pages 8-29 are legal for play except Augment Calling and Summon Guardian Spirit; Hex: the disrupt connection hex is legal for play; Magic Items: all items on pages 20-21 are legal for play except rod of giant summoning; Magus Arcana: all arcana on page 9 are legal for play; Monsters: the codex archon and ember weaver are legal choices for spells of the calling subschool; Spells: the spells on pages 22-23 are legal for play except alter summon monster and summon laborers; Traits: the traits on pages 10-11 are legal for play except Vile Domain.

I have looked on this forum and can find this.

Snake Style is great if you are willing to put skill points in to sense motive.

Snake Style:

You gain a +2 bonus on Sense Motive checks, and you
can deal piercing damage with your unarmed strikes. While using
the Snake Style feat, when an opponent targets you with a melee
or ranged attack, you can spend an immediate action to make a
Sense Motive check. You can use the result as your AC or touch
AC against that attack. You must be aware of the attack and not
flat-footed.


I have a Dwarf Wildblooded Empyreal Sorcerer with a 5 charisma and took the "mutant eye" trait just to give her a -1 penalty on diplomacy and bluff checks. She can be a real jerk.

that's brutal. what did the player think of that happening to their PC?

No one cared, he crapped up a 10 year campaign for s*&!s and giggles.

edit:
At the last count we spent about 1.25 million gold on research and spellcasting, and earned 425 gold, 230 silver, and 90 copper coins. from having him beat to death at 5 copper a go.

On the plus side, everyone became pretty on board with party unity and campaign goals afterward.

Even James Jacobs has had bad experiences

Mid-term elections are only 2 years away. No one has to wait 4 years to start making changes in Congress.

And to be honest Trump's not going to make it that far. The Right made a Faustian deal with him and they will get rid of him as soon as he outlives his usefulness. He insulted the intelligence community and as David Brooks pointed out "And, believe me, woe to you who insults the intelligence community, if you’re president. You do not want to get on their bad side, because, A, they leak a lot. B, you actually need them to learn about the world". Trump has undoubtedly done something in the past the either the FBI, CIA, or NSA knows about. At a convenient time something will come up and he will be gone. And as to my previous comment I counter with "if you don't vote, you don't exist" as far as the politicians are concerned. Unless you pose a credible threat to the establishment (e.g. voting) they have no reason to listen to you. The price for a senator to hang on to a six-year term is in the millions of dollars. If you're neither voting nor giving them money then why, oh why, should they care about you?

Tanya the Evil

Tanya is her own worst enemy. She can almost effortlessly manipulate others, as nobody expects such thinking from a child but she has this wonderful tendency to be too clever by half and stick her foot in her mouth. In someways God is a step ahead of her and just lets her dig her own hole.

The puppydog eyes and lip quiver she used against her rival at school were brutal. But to have everything turned around on her to find herself rocketing on a path to the most dangerous assignment she could get instead of a nice safe rear rank position.

Beyond that the ending of the show is fantastic, great showcase of art from the books and one heck of a cool song.

I love the ongoing conflict with "Being X".

Just remember: "Tanya the Evil" is great anime, "Tonya the Evil" is the Pathfinder Society Organized Play Coordinator.

We already have a way to tell the politicians how we feel. It's called voting.
