I'm surprised at that anyone, layman or not, would consider them even similar, also I am definitely a layman in all instruments, I might be able to muster a Mary had a Little Lamb on the piano but beyond that is beyond me and there is a huge difference to me.
I maybe could understand it if there was one category for all instruments but once you have divided into types as pathfinder does you can't claim them as similar enough to be one type, can you?
I was looking at equipment lists and I noticed that signal horns had perform (wind instrument) connected to them. This makes sense only the devs got confused by the English Horn which is larger Oboe or by the fact that the French Horn, which is a brass instrument, is played in a wind quintet.
I then look up perform skills a while later and I see that wind instruments includes the trumpet in the examples list. Wind and brass instruments are about as different to play wind and string instruments!
Is there any reason why the they should be combined?
Thanks for the time and sorry if this should be in another forum, it seems to fit in various categories.
The scenario is I, while having played little, have read a lot on the pathfinder database but my players are close enough brand new to D&D so I chose to start with beginner box rules and see how it works out.
The catch is I feel that the monsters list in the Beginner's Box is very limited and there are ideas I have that need things not in it so I'm considering using monsters from the full game in addition to the ones in the beginner box. The problem with that being I've noticed a couple of things that suggest the beginners box characters are weaker than they're full game counter parts and possibly the monsters are the same. I suspect that a few monsters would be particularly affected by the lack of opportunity attacks and so forth but I don't see that as to much of a problem as I can either not use them or change them on a individual basis.
The upshot of that is I have a twofold question, would it work to use some of the full game monsters under Beginner Box rules and would they need to be scaled at all?
@LazarX I had considered him as good due to where he ends up at Ragnarok, do I read you correctly in saying that you think where you fight then isn't very important to alignment? Also I haven't seen anything about human sacrifice for any of the Norse pantheon, do you have a source? (Sorry that sounds overly accusatory, I'm just interested in seeing more stuff I haven't found yet.)
I think the reason why I'm having difficulties put deities on the neutral axis is because there is a pretty clear good guy bad gut line in norse mythology based on who fights for which side at Ragnarok.
I'm going to go to bed now but I intend to read up on Tyr this evening as that linked doc has him as LN as opposed to the LG I put him as.
That is a very detailed load of info, I'm not sure how much I'll use as my plan is just to start with the Norse Pantheon and bring in other Pantheons if they travel or meet foreigners. The choices of domains and weapons are peculiar in cases, such as the lack of protection on Thor as he was the protector of mankind and the longsword for Tyr as he had a spear like Odin.
I need to read it through when I have more time to decide how much of that I want and I need to go atm.
I'm going to be starting a beginner box campaign soon( just need to prioritize exams and exam prep right now.) and the pantheon in the box didn't appeal to me and I'm a big fan of mythology so I decided to use a pantheon based on the Norse pantheon. I've written up, or mostly copied across from PRD, a bit for 6 gods so far based on requests from players and resembling in detail the beginner box info though no flavour text the following:
Holy Weapon: Spear
Holy Weapon: Light Hammer
Holy Weapon: Spear
Holy Weapon: Starknife (Note this choice was arbitrary so any better suggestions welcome.)
Holy Weapon: Dagger ( Again arbitrary)
Holy Weapon: Dart ( Once again arbitrary and suggestions will be welcomed.)
Feedback would be welcome on any and all aspect of this post. Also I wasn't sure where this should go so apologies if it is in the wrong forum.
I'm considering buying the PDF version but I'm not 100% clear on exactly what that contains, I presume it doesn't have the dice, is there anything else not in PDF?
Also I can't see anything that mentions what I can do with ie. can I print it off and if so is there a maximum number of copies and can I send copies to ereaders like my kindle.
Thanks for the time and sorry if this is duplicating a previous post
