First off, if there is another thread concerning this, I couldn't find it after 20 minutes of searching. Apologies if needed.
I was just wondering why there are no backgrounds for either the ninja or samurai in Chapter 1 Step 2 - Adolescence and Training?. I know they are variants of the rogue and cavalier respectively, but the gunslinger gets a section and it's a variant fighter.
Well, pfsrd.com says "Unlike a locked gauntlet, you can still use a hand with a weapon cord, though a dangling weapon may interfere with finer actions." which does kind of say it interferes with other weapons, but nothing about the degree of interference.
I suppose it would be a minimum of -1 to attack and maybe the same to damage?. Perhaps more if using a ranged weapon, at least on the attack roll, but since there's no mechanic on it, hard to say.
How many other DM’s run modules etc from their PC or Laptop? Can Technology play a greater role in table RPG.
In my group, I run PF and my friend runs oWoD Mage, we both use computers for pdf's, character sheets and such. Much easier than having to look through several books. Granted, we also love having the books to look through for planning and such.
Might I suggest an Iludium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator?! :D
The math behind movement speeds makes 6 mph = 52.8 ft/turn unless I totally forgot how to divide. :) 6mph/60= .1 mile per minute. One tenth of a mile is 528 ft or 52.8 ft/turn. Anyone caring to dbl check my math, please do! :)Just saying, I don't see any negatives for the PF rates vs 3.5. In fact, as stated, the PF horses can carry more. Unless, again, I'm misreading the tables in which case ignore this! :)
A small list of some things I've seen at the Ohio Ren Fest before.
Jacob's Ladder - rope ladder at about a 30 degree angle (or so, not 100% on the angle) with only one rope connecting at the top and bottom. MAJOR agility/balancing action calling for acrobatics rolls for each of the 6 rungs. I'd say DC 25 or 30 at least. Hardly ever see anyone make it to the top.
Ring Toss - Obvious and old, but still a neat simple game. Basically, ranged attack on the targets with a ring. Maybe use AC 20 or so to represent the difficulty?.
Kaber Toss - If you're feeling like adding some Highland type fun to the Fair. Strength Check vs a DC maybe?. Not too sure how to create mechanics for tossing a telephone pole! lol
I'd say a hedge maze, but rp'ing those can be a total nightmare/disaster.
Archery contest - Both stationary targets and moving ones so the elves don't get bored. (lol)
Catching a greased pig - This may have come about during the medieval period, if not, go with it for some comic relief! Acrobatics, Handle Animal type rolls and such.
Insult Contest - For the high CHA folks! This could even be totally roleplayed by the players if you don't think it could get out of control and become personal.
As for the Skill based politico, throw some interactions with the nobility and or aristocrats in attendance at him/her. Anything from introductions to attempting to schmooze their way into the upper crust. Or, if this pc is a rakish type, major Diplomacy, Bluff and Sense Deception rolls here to see how far he/she can get with one of the nobles!
Pathfinder Poetry "The Flyting of Cailean's Hall" (limerick epic for St. Patrick’s Day 2011 & Mark Moreland)
I was looking thru AA again this afternoon and something stuck in my mind from the Food, Drink, and Lodging section.
Well, back to planning my PC's demise!
PS - seeing as I'm not much of a drink mixer, I haven't attempted it myself in case you were wondering :)
Been looking around for a bit and haven't found anything about this question so here goes!
I'm playing a 1/2 Janni and they get Fire Resist 10. My question is whether or not his gear/clothing would also benefit from the resistance? The logical part of my brain says "No ya moron!", but the rest of it says "Might be possible!". So I figured I'd ask my fellow gamers and see what you all think!
