While we're on the subject of spheres of annihilation...

GM: There's a carving on the wall in the shape of a demon's head. The mouth is pitch black.
Barbarian: I stick my axe in.
GM: Your axe comes back about a foot shorter.
Barbarian: I stick my hand in.

My current games do have a distinct Leshy deficiency.

I'm small and cute and throw bits of myself at my enemies?

I think I probably enjoy the anticipation of exciting abilities more than actually using them. xD

Dotting. Is there a deadline for character submission?

In my WotR game, I played an arcane bloodrager. I was super excited to get my 4th-level bloodline power...then forgot to use it. Twice. Then ate a full attack from a Thoxel Demon, failed the will save and spent 6 rounds entirely failing to hit the warpriest while the rest of the party took care of the actual enemies.

Also, I've been playing Pathfinder for 7 years now and still have NO IDEA how to make an effective druid.

My Iron Gods group had two "pet" hedgehogs...which were actually baleful polymorphed enemies. We didn't take very good care of them, though, so they probably got blown up by some of the various explosives that were being chucked at us over the course of the adventure.

You might also want to check out the Divine Scion prestige class for bonus spell damage.

A cage always allows viewing inside, despite eldritch terrors loosed by an absence.

Apparently, Cayden's alcoholic ascension visibly increased diabolical efforts to legislate bans against ale.

How are you doing starting wealth?

Hey c: I'm not new to Pathfinder, but I am new to PbP.

4d6 ⇒ (3, 4, 4, 6) = 17 => 14
4d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 2, 6) = 20 => 18
4d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 1, 6) = 12 => 11
4d6 ⇒ (2, 1, 5, 4) = 12 => 11
4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 2, 5) = 16 => 14
4d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 2, 4) = 16 => 14

I certainly can't complain about that! I'm tempted to make a dwarf oracle or paladin.

+1 for Ravener Hunter and Prowler at World's End. I also really want to try the Ankou's Shadow slayer and Sin Eater inquisitor.
Death Druid is probably my favourite interpretation of the druid flavour; it's just really boring to level. :P

Hugs for all!

So I'm reading the new Qadira book and it mentions dire corbies several times. I keep misreading it as "dire corgis". Their yapping will haunt my nightmares...

In Strange Aeons, I'm playing a casting-focused druid, and yet I've failed more will saves than I've passed. My bloodrager in WotR had the same problem with fort. But that untrained knowledge check? Oh yeah, I'll absolutely roll a nat 20 on that.

In my experience, yes. Usually accompanied by a scoff and "it's ROLEplaying, not ROLLplaying!"

You aren't your character, but you are responsible for them.

There's no such thing as too many dice.

Name: This is the name of the eidolon's subtype. The eidolon gains this as a subtype, but unless otherwise noted, it does not gain any of the features, abilities, or weaknesses of that subtype.

So it's treated as that subtype for things like bane, but otherwise no.

A surprisingly non-squishy wizard with bad eyesight who dispenses buffs then lets their familiar do the actual fighting. Daemon-spawn Tiefling.

Am Orc Barbarian. Am have very bad Will saves.

While there doesn't seem to be any official ruling on Improved Two-Weapon Feint, it's almost certainly a mistake and should require Two-Weapon Feint.

My interpretation of Greater Feint would be that it makes the target flat-footed against everyone, so you could use it to help your allies as well. Also, if they provoke any attacks of opportunity from you, they'd be flat-footed against that. (Still agree that ITWF is way better, though.)

So, I'm planning on running Carrion Crown, in which many NPC clerics will be Pharasmin. In the event that PCs die and the remainder seek out a priest to raise their fallen comrade - what then? Pharasma hates the undead because they disrupt the soul's path to judgement, so what's her stance on resurrection?

Okay, thanks. I'll probably give him a lance anyway just to look cool. ;)

So, I'm trying to figure out gear for an elephant-riding cavalier and I've hit a bit of a snag. The cavalier is medium, ie. takes up one square on the battlefield. His mount is large and takes four squares in total. Does the cavalier need a reach weapon to attack creatures in squares adjacent to his mount? The rules say:

For simplicity, assume that you share your mount's space during combat.

So is he somewhere in the middle of the 10' (thus requiring a reach weapon to attack outwards) or does he count as being 10' wide (thus being unable to attack adjacent opponents with a reach weapon)?

It's the type of bonus that matters. The bonus from integrated is untyped, so it would stack with anything. I can't find the orc trait you're talking about but if it's a racial bonus, it wouldn't stack with wary because they give the same type of bonus (as far as I can remember, the only bonus type that stacks with itself is dodge). So integrated + wary would give you +2, integrated + dirty fighter would give +4, wary + dirty fighter +3 (the highest bonus counts) and all 3 +4.

EDIT: Ninja'd, and apparently I need to read more.
