After a two-year hiatus from 5e during which I ran a long Pathfinder campaign (set in the Dragon Empires, yeah!), I ran three sessions of 5e for Free RPG Day on Saturday at my FLGS (shout out to Brooklyn Strategist!). I was dismayed to learn that Smite can be used against any creature regardless of alignment (something that really annoyed me about 5e, I had repressed, and then was re-really annoyed with yesterday).

First thing yesterday morning I cracked open my Playtest rulebook and was relieved/pleased to see the word evil in the descriptor for the Paladin smite feat.

My question: Will Paizo be retaining Smite vs EVIL? Or is it going to be genericized like 5e? Please tell me it's the former! :)

Thanks in advance!

This is a huge fumble. Huge. We forked over good money in good faith for a product that can be downloaded for free, to have zero tracking info, zero amount of real feedback, and just a disappointing ‘oops’ email.

I ordered the book because I don’t like large PDFs. I like books. I ordered a book. There is no book, at least no this week. I suspect this won’t be sorted until after GenCon.

Major, major disappointment here. I will not make this mistake again, more fool me.

Thanks for all the input, guys!

I got a copy of Savage Worlds Deluxe and Thrilling Adventures. Will give them a read through over the next few days/weeks.

As a hung ga player for a long time, I like the more traditional styled movies:

Iron Flag

Kid With The Golden Arm

Crippled Avengers

Shaolin Challenges Ninja

Return of the Master Killer

10 Tigers of Kwan Tung

The Brave Archer

Martial Club

Challenge of the Masters

... those are my faves.

Sorry, I know I saw something under the PFS section that had all of the legal races, classes, etc, but now I cannot find it for the life of me.

Can someone either point me to that page, or tell me if the Nagaji race is legal for PFS?

I am thinking of playing a Nagaji Samurai.

Thanks!

Great podcast on the subject, here.

You can be an ex-paladin without any paladin levels.

That is what I would do; take fighter/rogue; go into Paladin if/when redeemed.

That looks awesome. And the most skilled shrink-wrap removal I have ever witnessed!!

This is a really good module.

I've made a simple map of Azuretone for use in my game. Anyone is free to use it if they like.

Tales of Zobeck looks KILLER!

Title says it all -- how long can you hold your action in combat?

Thanks!
