well guys what happened was he has a dinasaur familiar and during the first encounter summoned a dire boar, wolverine, and wildshaped into a dire lion. not to mention the fact that his raptor kills stuff extrememly well, his only roleplaying so far was playing a non verbal parrot, how would i bait him into roleplaying more, also im starting to think we dont mesh well ill give it a few more trys though and see how it goes.
but what is pathfinder all about, i mean i fell in love with eberron and all of keith bakers work; hes a fellow gamer who did extraordinary work on it all i just hate the fact that someone to get their world or work mainstream you have to sign a deal with the devil, and the also shot down dragonlance too,
its all quality man i feel that they are stretching to put a price tag on more and more things; i mean they are really stretching books there are so many times that they could of put two books into one and they have generalized focused books that drive me up the wall half the time these days if you dont have all the books you feel almost as if your working at a disadvantage, especially as a dm. i also feel when i hold in my hand two books of varing density with the same pricetag it makes me want to impale someone and display them in my front yard. but maybe this all goes into the face that i also have a strong dislike for capitalism even though i understand it usefulness. anyway thats my 4 cents

well maybe not in classic dnd but dnd modern or future; or maybe even if your including a little bit of spelljammer in the gaming
well if your going to go the high dex route then you can take weapon finesse and you will use your dex not your str to you advantage you will not need str for the essential game so it doesnt have to be a high stat therefore you can redirect you high stats as follows
three main stats and they will also boost up your saving throws
but if you wanted a true test 8 - 12th level no magic items and that would be a doosy of a knock down drag out brawl
so whats next barbarian vs monk?
About ten years ago, I played in an all-warrior AD&D campaign. In the middle of the dungeon, we find a +3 greataxe. The only problem: none of us had WP: Axes. So we continue on and come across three chests. We'd encountered a similar setup before and, by sheer luck, avoided their traps, so we're worried about these new ones. It then occurs to me, "Hey, that axe was 5 or 6 feet long. We'll use it to smash the locks. So what if we're not proficient." Well, it worked and on we went. A little later we came to a door with no key. We all tried to simply break it down, but we all failed. I said, "I pull out the +3 lockpick and try again." Nailed it on the first try and thus was born the Fighter's +3 Lockpick.
i like that i think ill use it
There are 80 "base classes" (those defined as having 20 levels) and 660 prestige classes (those having entry requirements). I don't have a few supplements and my database isn't updated to include those.
lilith you said in your database does that mean its digitial if so could you email it to me?
i know i was very tired when i did the initial post and i was just going through the index cards and typed as i went that is nuts... i personall think if they include all the new classes in 4th Ed its going to be a very expensive book
maybe someone should create a pamphlet style books of all the character creation options in pocket size
Actually, there are currently 175 classes available. See here. After you eliminate variations of common classes, racial classes and racial substitution classes, there are still about 60-70 actual classes available.
well i like the beguiler and dragon shaman but jeez if you use to play 2nd ed and were trying to get back in like a few of my friends it would be overwhelming
now dont think i was opossed to all the options i just hate the fact that if you want to see all of your options at one time you have to carry all those books with you or have them there.
I dont have all the Books. Im married so my funds are accounted for usually.
i mean i got a collection but i probably would have alot more
ive been making fastplay characters and i was looking at all the class race combinations [ not including psionics] i just dont like it but anyway i just cant believe all the classes there is at least 21 classes and that isnt including prestige classes. sometimes when a game looses its simplicity it also looses some of its fun
anyway here is the list of classes i know when you look at them all piled up it seems like alot
that is not even considering the races... i know dammn right
name- Mo Lar
circumstances- was in libary going through a historical log about the dragon prophecy and when the rest of the building started coming down, the rest of the party stated that it was time to go and that the place was comeing down
his response was i got time
they then said one by one
"f^ck this and left"
he stayed...he died. as three stories of tower fell on them due to acid damage in the fight before.
well im a DM about 98% of the time but i think the best death ive witnessed so far was the death of one of my own characters
Race- Air Gensai
so this was a while ago and i picked all of my spells to go off of my immunities.
so anyway all my spells were air cold and electricity based and in the campaign we were going into a fire world type deal and before the game that day i said to my girlfriend at the time that was playing too "its a good day to die" and everyone was like WTF they were like ok so we just enter the world and i tell all the other player to go that i would handle them, all of my big spells would of killed the creatures
but keith (damn him) convinced my girlfriend to stay there and help me so all of my upper spells would of killed her too. so 1 to 3 level spells only. kinda screwed me and he described the monsters that we were fighting as the fireball things from final fantasy and so i took out 5 of them without incident but on the last one when both of us were down to minimal points i cast hold monster so she could take it out
his response was
now mind you i was working on that chr for at least a year and a half. needless to say i really didnt enjoy playing with him anymore

well i believe your selections are great i would of probably of gone the same route but i was under the impression that it was pure base classes from PHB 1 thats it.
i have recently been going through and making fast play characters and if you didnt know how many classes there are there are a total of 21 that i know of, sooooo with that many options there is so much open for speculation
what was with the Rouge / Rouge thing enlighten me because thats the only way i could learn if someone lets me in on it
well Steve, Im looking to run or play Im actually been dying to try out eberron FR have never been my thing and eberron hit me just right and it meshed up with alot of the worlds that i have made up over the years and in some way sharn reminds me of lankmore if anyone knows about that. well i was wondering where you went actually to meet players.
By the way Im steve too.
