I like this thread. It taught me that that if someone uses the antagonize feat against me, I can use an intimidate check to demoralize back, as it's an offensive combat action. Thank you.

...I have nothing of use to add regarding the topic at hand.

How would this (if at all) interact with Dreamscarred Press's Path of War revamp of the maneuver system?

A shrunken party dungeon.

All the threats are normal stuff, just big. They could be fighting a regular house cat, but depending on how small they are you could use stats for a big cat, dire tiger, or something else (like owl-bear; just to mix it up). Judicious use of the giant template. The final challenge could be a "normal commoner" speced as a giant or titan.

Last I remember, Pathfinders iconic wizard, Ezren, was an atheist. His philosophy (if I remember correctly) was that if gods can be born, can be killed, and any mortal could become one, what's so special?

Just because this player doesn't believe Pelor is a god doesn't mean Pelor does not exist. It sounds more like he is either anti-theist or anti-religious; he doesn't believe (or trust) in god or religions, respectively. You should clear up whether this character is atheist, anti-theist, or merely anti-religious by informing him of how those concepts would interact with the populous. Have him describe his philosophy and reasoning, which should help you determine how future events may unfold (and whether he's just trying to dick you around).

In my GM's game, Draconic is pretty much dead though it was once used as a powerful tongue for spellcasting.

However, I talked to my GM and said it would be cool for my character to say some phrases in Draconic in the midst of battle, to inspire himself and the party with the might of wyrmkind. So yeah, I'm inventing a language with a weird grammar system and a vocabulary partially based off Gaelic, so please give me phrases to roar!
So far I've translated "Death before dishonour" and "Honour in all things".

I think the scariest we've come up with, was a Lich Magus smacking PC's around and grinning. 'Here's various magus combinations for large amounts of damage at higher level, AND my paralyzing touch. Oooh, look, I critted! What was your health again? Dead?'

Either that or the Vampire cleric, with channel smite on a conductive weapon for both his level drain and his channel damage... Paladin? What Paladin? *nudges ash pile out of sight with foot*

Also consider options such as the Talons of Leng, although I believe that might not combine at all with Conductive... *too tired to actually look up wording tonight*

Sorry to point out, but conductive won't work with a vampire's energy drain or the Talons of Leng because neither are touch attacks. Both effects occur when using a natural weapon (specifically the claws in the case of the talons) and are not independent from those attacks.

You and your friend's are going to scour the globe for seven magical macguffins that are almost always either A) in the worst possible places imaginable, B)part of the property of some evil a**hole, or C)both. You and your allies will train and power up, using fist, sword, and fireball to get these macguffins back so you can put them together in an awesome magical ritual. You will probably die along the way, but don't worry, you can be brought back.

That is Shattered Star...or Dragonball, I forget.

Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin alive, stayin alive... Just keeping things going.

@Vladimir Thomas- Sorry to burst your bubble, but Ruloc said he wasn't going to add anyone else to this list until it's done. He may or may not start another list, so cross your fingers and hold on to your character descriptions (I know I have a few:).

Yes, Ruloc does take commissions and that would be your best bet if you're in a hurry for your pics. Just hit him up at his Deviant Art page.

@Ruloc-If you haven't guessed, I stalk you when I haven't heard from you in a while. And it seems every time I do, I find another piece of your wonderful artwork. This is a wonderfully creepy piece that I will be recommending as a reference to a low charisma halfling witch Klooless will be playing in an upcoming Jade Regent campaign (alongside Janeko from your list). Keep up the great work!

...And stay in touch, we tend to miss you around here!

I LOVE THE MONKEYS! Not just the band, but these beautiful pictures. Dhima Hona was a brainstorm child of mine that Mobat ended up playing, and I must say, you did it justice. He's not much of a poster so I'll send it along, "Thank you very much!".

P.S. Just so you know, your art is the perfect size for Iphone backgrounds :]

I'm DMing the same AP right now, and at about the same part. I have a Wizard/magumbiyan-somthing-or-other and a rogue/sorc/arcane trickster in the party. Their response to "Immune to magic" was, in order:

1)knowledge check for weaknesses or alternate magical responses
2)Buff melee instead of blast enemy
3)Re-check spell list for "Spell Resistance: No" spells.

...Hell, They even get a wand of Acid arrow as treasure just before these encounters and a golembane scarab last book! The rule is "adapt or die".

On a side note: I remember the Caryatid Columns and then the Glass Golem, what's the third monster?
*edit-never mind. The spider-head-golem-things. Totally forgot about them as both spellcasters' daily powers deal force damage and the barbarian chewed through them.

Would you throw a monster immune to melee damage, or weapon damage at a party?

Yes. At least 2 swarms so far in the adventure. And at lower levels, too.

Core Rulebook pg.187 wrote:

Full Attack

If you get more than one attack per round because your
base attack bonus is high enough (see Base Attack Bonus
in Chapter 3), because you fight with two weapons or a
double weapon, or for some special
reason, you must use
a full-round action to get your additional
attacks. You do
not need to specify the targets of your attacks ahead of
time. You can see how the earlier attacks turn out before
assigning the later ones.
The only movement you can take during a full attack is a
5-foot step. You may take the step before, after, or between
your attacks.
If you get multiple attacks because your base attack
bonus is high enough, you must make the attacks in
order from highest bonus to lowest. If you are using two
weapons, you can strike with either weapon first. If you
are using a double weapon, you can strike with either part
of the weapon first.
Deciding between an Attack or a Full Attack: After
your first attack, you can decide to take a move action
instead of making your remaining attacks, depending
on how the first attack turns out and assuming you have
not already taken a move action this round. If you’ve
already taken a 5-foot step, you can’t use your move action
to move any distance, but you could still use a different
kind of move action.

No where in this does it say that it ceases to be a full attack action. It doesn't say it turns your one attack into a standard action attack. What it does say is it turns the rest of the attacks in your full attack action into a move action. you are still taking a full attack, even if the rest of your attacks become movement.

Manyshot (Combat)

You can fire multiple arrows at a single target.
Prerequisites: Dex 17, Point-Blank Shot, Rapid Shot,
base attack bonus +6.
Benefit: When making a full-attack action with a bow,
your first attack fires two arrows. If the attack hits, both
arrows hit. Apply precision-based damage (such as sneak
attack) and critical hit damage only once for this attack.
Damage bonuses from using a composite bow with a high
Strength bonus apply to each arrow, as do other damage
bonuses, such as a ranger’s favored enemy bonus. Damage
reduction and resistances apply separately to each arrow

...Not "in order to use this feet you must make a full attack action". It quite specifically always happens on every full attack with a bow, whether or not it is no longer intended to be a full attack.

Concerro wrote:

Also as I have said before you can never opt of a full attack.

What happens is you make the first attack in a normal situation. Then you decide to go into the a full attack or take a move action. That is the order presented in the book. The book does not say you get to commit to a full attack and then back out. What I just said has been quoted several times, and it is in the book. Nobody has yet to produce a quote that references backing out of a full attack.

If this is to be believed then Manyshot simply doesn't work and would never work, as the first attack of any full attack is only a single attack with the possibility to become a full attack.

On topic though: Ruloc that Storm Caller is amazing, especially like how the lightning is dancing around her.

I did both, posting here for slot reservation and on the other list for character details (so as not to clutter up this board with errata to my visual). I figure it doesn't hurt.

One final comment and then I'll let those who want to exploit the rules to allow nonsense do whatever they want.

The feat doesn't "let you do it without readying an action." The feat let's you do it.

...With your bare hands no less, but you see people deflecting bullets with weapons in other forms of media. The way I see it, a person with the feat is nonchalantly batting aside these pesky attacks, whereas the one without is focusing all his concentration (enough to where he's not attacking anyone else) to attempt to destroy the offending object. I'm not seeing a great mechanical advantage to disallow it.
