I think you wouldn't gain extra dices from striking runes, since it's a Polymorph effect

Polymorph wrote:
If you take on a battle form with a polymorph spell, the special statistics can be adjusted only by circumstance bonuses, status bonuses, and penalties. Unless otherwise noted, the battle form prevents you from casting spells, speaking, and using most manipulate actions that require hands. (If there’s doubt about whether you can use an action, the GM decides.) Your gear is absorbed into you; the constant abilities of your gear still function, but you can’t activate any items.

Well, at least that's how was done in the playtest, did they changed that?


I hope they have a way to fix that in an errata

So, there was a Blood Demon lrking a PC, and after we migrated for final 2e, there was no more Babau Demons in the Bestiary, so, i have redone it!

Blood Demon Creature 8
CE, Medium, Demon, Fiend
Perception +16; darkvision
Languages Abyssal, telepathy (usually 100 feet)
Skills Stealth +18, Intimidation +16, Acrobatics +17, Deception +16
Str +4 Dex +6 Con +4 Int +3 Wis +3 Cha +3
Items +1 spear
AC 26, Fort +17, Ref +18, Will +13
HP 167; Resistances acid 10; Weaknesses cold iron 8, good 8
Redemption Vulnerability As blood demons are beings created by killers, creatures that reject to kill can metaphysically harm them. When a creature in a radius of 60 foot ins brought down to 0 HP by Nonlethal damage, the Blooddemon takes 3d6 mental damage.

Speed 25 feet
Melee ◆ +1 spear +20 (Thrown 20 ft) Damage 2d8+9 plus 2d4 acid
Melee ◆ Claws +20 (agile) Damage 2d6+6 plus 2d4 acid
Melee ◆ Jaws +20 Damage 3d6+7 plus 2d4 acid

Sneak Attack 1d6 damage if flat-footed
Lurking Assassin ◇ If Blood Demon is hidden before an attacks hidden, if it hits it can attempt a Demoralize action against the target of the attack, for free

This is great!

I have one question though - in TABLE 2–11: SPELL DC AND SPELL ATTACK ROLL, the spell DCs = corresponding spell attack roll + 8.
For PCs (AFAIK), spell DCs = spell attack roll + 10. (Core rulebook, pf 298)
Is this intentional?
Thanks!

I think that this is a error (probably a misspeling). Look at the Demilich (level 15 creature) has an extreme DC (40) and a atk roll of +30


I liked a lot!

For reference:

Exploration Trait:
An activity with this trait takes more than a turn to use, and can usually be used only during exploration mode. (Source Core Rulebook pg. 631).

Fatigued:
You’re tired and can’t summon much energy. You take a –1 status penalty to AC and saving throws. While exploring, you can’t choose an exploration activity. You recover from fatigue after a full night’s rest.

So, if you are Fatigued, there's a lot you can't do:

Things you can not do:
Borrow an Arcane Spell, Coerce, Cover Tracks, Decipher Writing, Identify Alchemy, Impersonate, Learn a Spell, Make an Impression, Refocus, Repair, Sense Direction, Squeeze, Track, Treat Wounds, Affix a Talisman, Avoid Notice, Defend, Detect Magic, Follow the Expert, Hustle, Investigate, Repeat a Spell, Scout, Search, Borrow an Arcane Spell, Coerce, Cover Tracks, Identify Alchemy, Impersonate, Make an Impression, Repair, Sense Direction, Squeeze, Track, Treat Wounds, Decipher Writing, Learn a Spell.

Is it just me, or Fatigued is the worse condition you can apply to a PC?

My worries are not only for errors, but I don't wanna the people in the office start suffering from Burnout! There is a lot of pressure now.

So, just wanna make it clear that I I've 2ed, and think the errors are little small!

But let's hope they keep the good work, and keep the sanity too!

Hello my friends!

So, I really loving 2ed, (to be true I already loved the playtest...) but is it just me that it's a little worried about the speed Paizo is making new books?

They did a great launch (Core, Bestiary, Lost Omens), but as I see, there were some petty erros and some things that passed most likely because it was made in a fast state... (Alchemist, materials, and other FAQ/errata materials).

What worries me, it's that they are already working in: A new playtest (the new classes), Gamemastery Guide, Bestiary 2, Lost Omens Character Guide, Lost Omens Gods & Magic... This excluding the AP's and the new module from Mr Mona.

Not that I'm not excited about those books (i'm really am!), but with so many things, i'm little worried that things get a little rushed...

So, what you guys think?


I liked it!


In Pathfinder we had the Squeezing rule

Squeezing PF 1:
Squeezing
In some cases, you may have to squeeze into or through an area that isn’t as wide as the space you take up. You can squeeze through or into a space that is at least half as wide as your normal space. Each move into or through a narrow space counts as if it were 2 squares, and while squeezed in a narrow space, you take a –4 penalty on attack rolls and a –4 penalty to AC.

When a Large creature (which normally takes up 4 squares) squeezes into a space that’s 1 square wide, the creature’s miniature figure occupies 2 squares, centered on the line between the 2 squares. For a bigger creature, center the creature likewise in the area it squeezes into.

A creature can squeeze past a creature while moving but it can’t end its movement in an occupied square.

To squeeze through or into a space less than half your space’s width, you must use the Escape Artist skill. You can’t attack while using Escape Artist to squeeze through or into a narrow space, you take a –4 penalty to AC, and you lose any Dexterity bonus to AC.

In 2ed could't find anything similiar. Did I miss something?


Well, you know, in real life, sometimes you are so sick that you don't drink or eat... Sometimes you get so dehydrated that you need to get liquids directly in your vein, or you will die...

Plus you are probably vomiting, worsing your dehydration

Some fixes that should make a little better and will apply in my homegame

---> Martial Archetypes (those that don't give spellcasting)

- In addition to it's benefits, you automatically gain a lvl 1 or 2 feat from that class.

- Basic X do not exist

- Advanced X: Don't have a Prerequisite

---> Dedications

- If the dedication have 2 Abilities requiriment (Ex. Fighter Str 14, Dex 14), change the following:

- Put "or" between the abilities

- Increase the requirements in +2

When you succeed at a Knowledge check, you gain additional information or context. When you critically succeed at a Knowledge check, at the GM's discretion you might gain even more additional information or context than normal.

It could have been:

"When you succeed at a Knowledge check, you gain additional information or context. You may continue making Knowledge checks to gain more information as a free action untill you fail or critical fail"

BAM

Know-it-all

So, he has a Str mod of +3 and currently has a total Bulk of 5 + 3 light. And this is described as low enough that he can carry more or assist his party members. Does this mean that Bulk limits ramped up from the playtest or that equipment got better gradiation between 1 light and 1 Bulk?

Or is that something we have to hope made it into the GMG?

5 + Strength mod (which is +4) means he could carry 9 Bulk. He is carrying 5 Bulk and 3 light (so like 5.3) out of 9, plenty of room. :)

Ok, I missed the Str mod being +4.

This still doesn't allay my concerns, though. Not at all.

Going by the playtest and by what Seelah was depicted as having in the art previews, her maximum starting Bulk would also be 9. Her equipment is a Longsword (1B), Full plate (not something she might have at 1st level, but still a fair assumption) (4B), a Longbow (it looked more like a shortbow to me, but that's what it was called) (2B) plus at least one quiver of arrows (1L), a Shield (1B) plus mandatory repair kit (1B). Throw in a bedroll (1L), one waterskin (1L), and a mere two days' worth of rations (2L), and she's barely scraping by at 9B + 5L.

And that is with a bare minimum of gear, let alone what she would really need to approach a proper level of preparedness. What happens when we throw in a mere 10 additional arrows, a mere three additional days' worth of food, and a dagger (because what self-respecting adventurer isn't going to have a last-resort dagger)?

And this doesn't even address her need to be able to do some manner of looting after raiding a dungeon. She finds one Longsword, deliberately in the adventure as part of the treasure. What does she give up to be able to take it?

That's... not plenty of room. That's suffocatingly small.

Which is why I'm also asking if the actual rules will feature more gradiation. A 9 Bulk limit is far easier to deal with when whole portions of it aren't swallowed up at a time (going from a 1L...

You know that the limit is 10+Str, right?

And if you pass 5+Str, just drop your backpack when fighting...

You say tomato, I say "cleric better have good spells this time around".

On the plus side, even if the divine spell list hasn't changed much, it looks like Clerics do now get class feats at 12 and 16.

It's a little hard to read, but there's also "Miraculous Spell" listed in the Class feature table at level 19. Could that be a level 10 spell slot? I vaguely remember someone mentioning level 10 spells might not require a class feat to gain access to.

Every class now has 11 Class Feats

IMHO the only reason that people view Charisma as lacking parity is because it's so largely under utilized in most games. In all seriousness Charisma should come into play whenever you are:

1. Making a First Impression.
2. Attempting to Buy or Sell items.
3. Attempting to Negotiate the rewards of a quest.
4. Attempting to Gather Information.
5. Speaking to someone on anything more than a casual level.
6. Attempting to convince someone to help you.

... The list is pretty huge.

The problem here is that most people are more than willing to overlook social rolls for common social scenarios by simply relying on the roleplaying of the player.

Realistically, having an 8 Charisma should typically result in you having less than favorable conditions in any conversation you have with someone.

It's a ton of bookkeeping which is why it's never really done.

Charisma is plenty strong when you actually use it in every applicable situation.

And this is why I always make someone roll when using these checks, and adapt the DC by the roleplay...

Ok, so after reading the Skill Page

Crafting -> Very similar as the Playtest version, except you don't reduce the number of days by your level. So pay half, in 4 days you can pay the rest and get the item or you can keep crafting for a discount (it appears that the discount is bigger!)
Obs. In the Ezren example it seems that the DC will be easier to achieve. Ezren have +13 Craft and the DC of the item of his lvl is DC 19. So easier CS.

Another thing I noticed in the Create a Diversion skill use from Deception it's that they probably changed the names of Percepetion stats (it lists something as observed and hidden)

So, as a big fan of necromancer builds, do we have any news about this spell?


Ediwir wrote:

So, more details on Treat Wounds - it affects 1 target only, and also bolsters on a failure.

That’s... a bit restrictive, I have to say.

Yeah I prefer the Playtest version that affected all the party.


morphail wrote:

Very nice.

I envision firearms to be crossbowier than crossbows- long reload, high damage.

One thing about the misfire chance- when you link the chance of a misfire to the new critical fail system you end up with this wierd effect that a weapon never misfires when you shoot a goblin (or at a picture of a goblin- low AC), but the same gun and user will misfire a lot when aiming at a dragon (or a dragonfly- high ac).
I suggest randomizing misfire by linking it to a natural 1, or simply not having misfire as a mechanic.

I think you are right... Should only trigger in a Natural 1.

But I still don't like the Missfire, but couldn't come with anything more interesting...


Ah, I know that Spell Points will not be in the final version, being substituted by the Focus.

But without knowing how Focus works and anything about the final version, I'm still using Playtest rules and will try to update when we have the final rules

Hello everyone, so as I said in other topic I'm currently working in a Homebrew Gunslinger Archetype.

I decided to share what I already have so you guys could help me if the rest of the class.

--Notes--
- English is not my mother language, so, sry for any error.
- I'm trying to create 2 big paths for the class: "The Daring" and "The Sharpshooter" giving two options each level of class feats;

So here it's the link

Gunslinter 0.1

I would very much like you to help me with ideas for new feats or if there is anything else that you think is interesting to comment, please do!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

They said that it they went if Focus=Cha, then they would make some new things to help classes like Monk and Ranger...

If that in mind and knowing this new mechanic of recovering Focus, can't see a problem if they went if Charisma

Btw as those skills dont exist any longer (even in playtest): How is it handled when someone needs to ride a beast, steer a ship, fly around obstacles, ...? not over skills or if over skills over which ones?

Anybody can ride a horse, but there is a Skill Feat Ride that makes you a better rider.

Sail should be a Lore (Sailor), as a lot of other skills, since you can try untrained, not a problem there

Fly aroud obstacles should be a Acrobatics check, but can see a little of variance between tables

On an aside I have been thinking about katanas and how there should be at least two versions since different people want different things from them based on both anime tropes and on reality.

...
What you're describing is actually akin to the swords used in Daisho (Samurai duel wielding), which is a katana & wakizashi pairing, and in that case, it would make more sense to have the wakizashi have agile, since they were extremely close to Europe's shortswords.

I know that is the real world answer but my suggestion isn't about realism it is about feel. And some players feel like the katana should be a dex weapon. My goal is to try and keep players with different views of how their characters should work (mostly form unrealistic media influences) happy rather than the simulationists. It is a fantasy game after all.

I'd probably have a wakizashi just be a reskined short-sword for the agile property. That way you could be either a str or dex based katana + wakizashi fighter just with the two different katanas.

So, I'm working in an archetype for Gunslinger and of course needed to create the guns.
...

I'd probably go with more damage, a longer reload time and a really short range increment. Something that for the most part you don't bother reloading in combat but it worth using because the damage is so high. But that's my opinion and I know it isn't at all how guns worked in PF1 core.

Something like...

Pistol
Hands 1 Bulk 1 Reload: 2
Damage: 1d8 Piercing
Properties: Firepower 1d8, Deadly 1d8
Range: 10 ft

Musket
Hands 2 Bulk 2 Reload: 3
Damage: 1d10 Piercing
Properties: Firepower 1d10, Deadly 1d10
Range: 20 ft

Firepower: This weapon deals an extra die of damage of the listed type. This damage increases to two dice if the weapon is master quality and three dice if the weapon is legendary.

Ok, so after reading your guys recomendations, that's what i have blended:

Pistol
Hands 1 Bulk 1 Reload: 2
Damage: 1d8 Piercing
Properties: Deadly 1d8, Backstaber, Missfire
Range: 25 ft

Musket
Hands 2 Bulk 2 Reload: 3
Damage: 1d10 Piercing
Properties: Deadly 1d12, Missfire
Range: 60 ft

Missfire: If you critical miss a attack with this weapon, you double the reload time (this actions can be made in any order or number of rounds).

Then I have come with this feat:

Rapid Reload [4]
(Class Feat, Gunslinger)
You decrease the Reload time for Firearms in "1" and remove the trait "Missfire"

Nicely done!


So, I'm working in an archetype for Gunslinger and of course needed to create the guns.

What you guys think?

-Pistol- Exotic Weapon
Reload: 1

-Musket- Exotic Two handed weapon
Reload: 2
Damage: 1d10 piercing
Range: 90 feet
Traits: Fatal d12, Deadly d8, Volley 30 feet

I think Paizo wants to keep pretty tight control over anything that's actual expansion of the setting. It's their baby and they've got a lot of ideas about what's going in it that they've hinted at, but aren't ready to put out until the right moment - like an AP using a region or a villain or something.

Throwing it wide open to 3rd party work takes away some of that control...

If we never see a Paizo GM's Guild, I think this is the real reason why.

I think the only solution to something like this is open a Multiverse Golarion

For their products they use the Golarion 1, and nothing that happens there occurs in Golarion 2, that is the place that the IP is broken and anyone can write adventures.

Dying 3... the cleric used Heal spell right after this. The barbarian has 23 HP... she healed 7 HP. So does the Barbarian:

A) get 7 HP and is conscious.
B) go to 0 HP and is unconscious.
C) gets 7 HP and has wounded condition.

But to be correct: Barbarian gets 7 HP, is prone, dropped his weapon and is Wounded 1
