Knowledge (Arcana)?

I would argue a mix of Knowledge (Arcane) and Knowledge (Geography), the first to see if the character knows about the magic item and the latter to know if any cities it might have it.

due respect but who cares? PFS feat control hurts martials far more than casters and exacerbates a martial/caster disparity. There's nothing particularly great about PFS legal.

Myself, I completely ignore PFS legality as I have no interest in running or being apart of a PFS campaign.

That, and because as a DM I explicitly allow at least certain 3rd party resources with a few being required components of my campaigns.

Pathfinder Specialty offers nothing I am interested in. More, I feel Organized Play has in some ways hurt the hobby as a whole while setting certain expectations among players and DMs that I disagree with.

All in all, not a fan.

May have went a little overboard by making everyone a synthesist yet it is really the only class that can represent the transformations and change of power for the characters who use life fibers.

How about this? I do believe at this point I have a fairly good grasp of Spheres of Power and that I've created a pretty fairly decent build.

Sans the Comic:
Character Level: 20th
Class: Telekinetic Warrior (Symbiat)
Boons: Easy Focus (Telekinesis)
Drawbacks: Magical Signs, Somatic Casting x2, Personal Warp, Energy Focus (Force)
Sphere Talents
Telekinesis (Primary): Forceful Telekinesis, Increased Range, Acceleration, Greater Speed, Weaponize, Dancing Blade, Divided Mind
Destruction (Secondary): Force Blast, Greater Blast x2, Extended Range x2, Crafted Blast, Chain Blast
Warp (Minor): Distant Teleport, Unseeing Teleport, Quick Teleport
Advanced Talents: Effortless Telekinesis, Linear Acceleration, Disintegrate, Penetrating Blast
Feats: Force Shield (Protokinesis), Telekinetic Exoskeleton (Protokinesis), Mind Against Body, Focused Blast (Force), Energy Specialization (Force), Deadly Targeting, Extra Magic Talent x4

Dark Archive

Hmm, though it would mean cutting back a far bit on talents overall... I'm strongly consider switching the build above to being a Symbiat (perhaps Telekenetic Warrior) instead of Incanter.

This is at least in part because of the drastically increased means of avoiding being it through Battlefield Sense, Pushed Movement, Uncanny Dodge and Evasion with the Improved versions, as well Trapsense.

Even though I was relatively pleased with how he was coming along above, there was one thing that I felt was missing... that Sans was an extremely frustrating foe to hit in the game while also being scary in his offense.

The movement bonus plus Warp talents for self teleporting would also allow him to being the most mobile character in combat.

Dark Archive

A young synthesist of some sort who finds herself having to fight a variety of powerful foes in trying to avenge her father though her fused form with her eidolon is embarrassingly revealing counting:

* A very lawful neutral masochistic synthesist/monk(maybe?) who has found a way of translating the damage dealt to him as greater returned damage.
* A high perception synthesist/samurai who eventually gains the equivalent of the Swordmaster's Blindfold by chosing that it was better to fight without his sight.
*A synthesist/bard with a heavy focus on dealong sonic damage who is able to fly. Focus on keeping an opponent at a distance as she uses her music to blow them away.
*A synthesis/sorcerer focused on divination and fighting with greater invisibility. Able to fun weakness in an opponent's abilities and exploit them.

And finally, one with the Leadership feat with high rating, high Intimidation, ruling all beneath who shows herself to also be a capable synthesist with the complete loyalty of her "four generals".

... all who which must later join together to stop a world ending threat from a woman who can turn off their ability to fuse in an ever building climax of insanity and awesome.

Dark Archive

The Action Economy rules, however they are tinkered with, plus
Spheres of Power I feel could work well together. Where they'd both go even farther to lessen the gap between martials and casters.

So I was looking through the Symbiat class and noticed something a bit scary with Favored Class Bonuses.

Elf Symbiats with the Run feat can move 500ft by level 20. Hmm, now if I could remember how many seconds or minutes a Move action is.

Yet, there is some merit to certain magic items being found in magic shops but this would mostly be in larger cities or "metropolises". Things such as potions and wands, though enchanted armour and weapons may have to be custom ordered and picked up by the character once completed.

The important thing in my eyes is that the expectation is set that a player cannot depend on the exact item they are looking for being available. That they may have to made due with whatever they can find until or if they are able to find an NPC able and willing to create for their character the exact magic item they want.

Part of the wonder I feel though is simply not make certain magic items, particularly armour, weapons, and wondrous items overly common. More, consideration of such with more then simply numeral bonuses. With this a distinction of what is and is not a common magic item that most every adventurer uses and less common or even rare magic items.

Dark Archive

On mention of PC class levels... many, of the mostly more important NPCs, in my campaigns will have PC class levels and not NPC class levels. As such, this distinction is not helpful.

Also, I am in agreement with some that there would actually be many adventurers of different skill and ability even NPCs. Saying that the Player Characters are the only adventures in all of Golarion is completely stupid. The way I see it the world should not revolve around the players, and that there would be other adventurers both new and more experienced.

Lots of useful advice.

A quick question with Divided Mind, when combined with Weaponize could it allow for one to blanket the battlefield with “knives” made of pure telekinetic energy? Of so, then I would be very interesting in making use of this Talent… otherwise, not so much, as I want to avoid having him using any weapons not made from the Telekinesis sphere. Your suggestions for Destruction talents I'll look into as well for passives, as more ways to mix things up would be fun.

Also, of note, while you have given me a bit to think on as I consider Easy Focus, talents, and feats a fair focus I was planning on making use of is not both active Telekinesis and Destruction talents in the same turn but instead strategic use of one or the other either on different turns. Have one be active one turn and passive the next, switching it up. The goal being to end a battle quickly as well, perhaps finding ways of adding in status effects such daze, stun, or conditions such as making an opponent flat footed.
-----------------------------
To go into a bit more detail of what I’m looking to accomplish:

Honestly, if I could, I would like to go for something of a glass cannon, fragile speedster, or “sweeper” in style and feel. High power, difficult to hit, greater number of attacks, but low in hit points and vulnerable if forced into close combat without his magic to get him out of trouble. Yet, that is likely hard if not impossible to fully pull off with either Spheres of Power or Pathfinder in general. Maybe though I can get close, where I can work towards a memorable and challenging battle with an NPC inspired by a certain comedic skeleton named Sans who passes judgement on genocidal megalovaniacs.

I might also dip into other spheres for a few flavor abilities, such as Time Sense, and a way of having him deal more damage based on the past deeds of his opponents such as evil acts or excessive willingness to kill everything before them, heh. His “Karmatic Retribution” as it is called, maybe looking to the Fate sphere. Generally though, I will be sticking with Telekinesis and Destruction, with Warp for movement.

Also I feel that I should mention that while he may be well equipped, this NPC will not be wearing any armour of any sort. Also, as above, no weapons as mentioned before. Consideration of upping AC in other ways would be helpful, especially since I would very prefer to make him difficult to hit.

Hmm, grabbing additional Talents would be nice. I admittedly picked Warp as the Incantor specialization because it was the only one that felt benefited the concept.

Quick Teleport, I must have missed that. I used the Spheres of Power wiki in building this with some limitations while at work. The reason being because of filters at work I have to open a cached version of any given page to view... checking now, it seems Quick Teleport is there so I am not certain how I missed that.

I'll look into a Destruction staff.

Of note, I actually haven't decides on any feats and I am very much open for suggestions. A way of shooting off multiple Force Blasts would be nice, if such is possible, in a given turn.

Class: Incanter
Specialization: Warp.
Level: 17-20

Sphere Talents
Telekinesis (Primary): Deflect, Finesse, Forceful Telekinesis, Acceleration, Greater Speed, Weaponize, Dancing Blade, Linear Acceleration, Effortless Telekinesis
Destruction (Secondary): Force Blast, Greater Blast x4, Extended Range x2, Crafted Blast
Warp (Minor): Distant Teleport, Emergency Teleport, Unseeing Teleport

The basic feel and strategy I am going for is an NPC "non-combatant" who depends completely on his magic to fight, both though the Telekinesis and the Destruction Spheres while staying mobile through the Warp Sphere. My goal is for him to be quite scary with his magic and be able to deal a lot of damage, especially with his Force Blast.

The traditions were tied to various philosophies and ideals as well, although no alignments. I didn't use alignments at all. Instead, I used 'aspects', Holy, Arcane, Death, Chaos, Nature (Yes, they are the Master of Magic schools). The list of banned spheres was largely influenced by the primary and secondary (if any) aspects of their tradition.

Oh, and in that the spheres of warp and time were only theorised. There was going to be a plot involving the source of those spheres to be an otherworldly 'sixth aspect'. Probably with some hideous, Lovecraftian price.

There are things that have improved greatly since the AD&D days, but something about "My 1st level Wizard has an INT of 20" really bugs me.

Not only that, but I would have to ask how a player plans on roleplaying an Int 20 as this is I feel very arguably more genius level as far as mortal races go. Even in general, whether with dragons, celestials, devils, demons, and other creatures or monsters can have higher then this.

Any stat that is above 20 I feel would be the rare 10% at best of any mortal race, except perhaps if the race has a bonus to such.

Dark Archive

I would allow up to 25 point myself, on the condition that a player could not have any score before racials be higher then 16 or lower then 8. I would even have this count for 20 point buy and work out pretty well.

I would possibly be willing to make allowances for players who want to play a race that gives a penalty to the primary stat of a class. I would firmly enforce that none can having a stat higher then 18 after racials.

I can never understand those who say they saw someone roll three 18s and a 16, as this has never been anything I have seen in all my years of playing AD*D,D&D< or Pathfinder. Heck, in most cases a player is lucky to get a single 18.

Dark Archive

What I'd like to see more often, and I may even try my hand at a little homebrewing for such, is the character creation "playbooks" from games like Over the Wall and Apocalypse World.

Where instead of a player rolling for their stats they will instead roll a background for their character which gives them different stat bonuses and skills. These rolled backgrounds having the added benefit of tying together the characters in the party, making it so that they are not simply strangers who met up but comrades and friends who grew up together.

This I feel this is all around better than point buy or simply rolling for stats.

In my personal opinion, Eberron is the more progressive setting and more interesting/innovative as well.

Honestly I'm very glad I found Tim, as I feel he came up with a pretty brilliant idea when it came to races. Versatility in the extreme, particularly when compared to how races are normally put together. More, it could very well help too breathe live into character creation beyond traits, classes, archetypes, prestige classes, feats, skills.

Yet, it does appear that this homebrew makes extensive use of the Advanced Races Guide, which I believe I have found others show complaint or concern of balance and how the book was put together.

As such I'd like to ask for the thoughts, consideration, and advice of those here about this Homebrew. Could this really offer a great improvement in fun and in the game for those that would like to go beyond the official races or those who may wish to do something a little bit different with their characters?

I do not take credit for this archetype, but I did consider it very interesting when I found it a couple of years back.
--------------------------

Vagabond (Bard)
Vagabonds are eternal wanderers—never able to stay in any one place for long. They give up some of their musical versatility to improve their ability to travel and avoid danger on the road.

Class Features Modifications
Class Skills: Remove Climb from the vagabond’s list of class skills and add Disable Device.

World Traveler (Ex): A vagabond gains a bonus equal to half his bard level on Knowledge (geography), Knowledge (history), Knowledge (nature), and Linguistics checks. He can reroll a check against one of these skills, but must take the result of the second roll even if it is worse. He can reroll one additional time per day at 5th level and every five levels thereafter.
This ability replaces bardic knowledge.

Fast Movement (Ex): At 2nd level, a vagabond’s land speed is faster than the norm for her race by +10 feet. This benefit applies only when she is wearing no armor or light armor and not carrying a heavy load. Apply this bonus before modifying the vagabond’s speed because of any load carried or armor worn. This bonus stacks with any other bonuses to the bard's land speed.
This ability replaces well versed.

Roguishness (Ex): At 2nd level, and every four levels thereafter until 18th level, the vagabond gains a rogue-like talent.
The abilities that follow replace versatile performance.

Evasion (Ex): At 2nd level and higher, a vagabond can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If she makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if the vagabond is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless vagabond does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Starting at 6th level, a vagabond can react to danger before her senses would normally allow her to do so. She cannot be caught flat-footed, nor does she lose her Dex bonus to AC if the attacker is invisible. She still loses her Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. A vagabond with this ability can still lose her Dexterity bonus to AC if an opponent successfully uses the feint action (see Combat) against her. If a vagabond already has uncanny dodge from a different class, she automatically gains improved uncanny dodge (see below) instead.

Woodland Stride (Ex): Starting at 10th level, a vagabond may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at her normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. Thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that have been magically manipulated to impede motion, however, still affect her.

Improved Uncanny Dodge (Ex): A vagabond of 14th level or higher can no longer be flanked. This defense denies a rogue the ability to sneak attack the character by flanking her, unless the attacker has at least four more rogue levels than the target has vagabond levels. If a character already has uncanny dodge (see above) from another class, the levels from the classes that grant uncanny dodge stack to determine the minimum rogue level required to flank the character.

Improved Evasion (Ex): At 18th level and higher, the vagabond is better at avoiding magical and unusual attacks. This ability works like evasion, except that while the vagabond still takes no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks, she henceforth takes only half damage on a failed save. A helpless vagabond does not gain the benefit of improved evasion.

The d20pfsrd site has this 3rd party creature.

Honestly, if I could find a DM willing to let me play this race, I take it in a heartbeat.

It always frustrated me how "expensive", in Race Points anyway, Centaurs are in Pathfinder... especially when one takes into consideration their large size would case them problems when transversing certain areas and going into buildings, as well as the fact that they can't climb ladders and would likely have at least some difficulty with stairs.

Also the Advanced Stats setup is annoying, so as to balance Centaurs out with other races I probably toss those and go with the +X, +X, -X... Which would bring the Race Point cost down to 14. Additional stat bonuses could simply be gained by way of racial class levels.

Yes it may not be "official", but as long as the campaign is not for Pathfinder Society I recommend discussing with your DM if he might be willing to allow it.. given the situation with the Unchained Monk and it not having access to any of the previous archetypes.

Oh, we're going back to the whole challenge rating thing?

Again my hope is that the party won't try to fight Eludecia. If they do, I do believe it is a foregone conclusion that unless they're at least at or above level 18 they're not going to be able to win, and by that level they should have access to spells that quite clearly show that she isn't someone they need to fight.

The party wants to try fighting her they can, but unless they're nearing highest level play her challenge rating doesn't even really matter.

I'll put her challenge rating as 19 for now.

Probably a mix of a few of the above. Cosmic, demonic, and body horror for the PCs with that of gothic horror more for NPCs. Survival or slasher horror I don't think would works very well, at least not without drastically changing the mechanics of the game.

My thoughts being more of what the party can experience as they go about their adventures. Strange horrors from realms far beyond, of the demonic, of the alien, and of more classic monsters of horrors. With this as the party suffers from possible insanity or corruption which may warp or twist their body and mind.

Perhaps With the party playing the roles of heroes we fight back against the darkness and madness, playing their parts in keeping chaos and evil from overtaking the land or in bringing hope where others my try sniffing it out.

Perhaps a campaign that follows after a similar style to the Diablo series might be of consideration, as well perhaps others.

Again though, I feel "suvival horror" may not work using Pathfinder rules as part of how that works is there is least a degree of actual fear and helplessness as you try to survive the danger.
