Here's a good story: we were in the last book of iron gods, the second-to-last encounter which has a really, REALLY big thing that tears people into really, REALLY small pieces. So we enter the room and see that big thing, and what appears to be the final boss, standing next to it. My character, a bloodrager, does the thing he is best at and charges the big thing. He hits it for upwards of fifty damage. It then proceeds to full attack him, killing him instantly despite temporary hit points from rage, and bears endurance. Pieces of his corpse fly everywhere. Then the techslinger pulls out their laser gun, and blasts it into ash. In one round. Had I not charged, the big thing would not have killed me.

Ahh, memories. My first EVER character death. So there I was. Ten years old. Just found a group to play pathfinder with after about two years of self-taught 4e play. (Yes, I played 4e for two years with only myself and my brother). I had a character! Seventh-level ifrit fighter. He wielded a scimitar and no shield. One night, while me and the rest of the party were sleeping, we heard a stomping noise coming from down the trail. I got out of my tent just in time to see a rock (not roc) fly over my head, thrown by a greater cyclops. The rest of my party began running away, but it threw a single rock at the cleric, and he dropped to the ground unconscious. I realized that someone needed to distract it if there was to be any hope of escape. So, naturally, I charged. (No similarities here, nope). It somehow rolled a nat 1 on its attack against me that round, and I lived for six more seconds. This was enough time for the wizard to pick up the cleric and haul ass out of there. Then, the cyclops critically hit me with an awesome blow. I had 87 hp. The hit did 149 damage. My pasted corpse flew 40 feet and landed in front of the wizard, who didn't care and just kept on running. They both escaped.

Another one!

In a week-long one-shot adventure I ran, the players first job was to get this dagger from a display case in an auction house. They were mostly new players, like, first session new. There was a lot of clarifying what the d20 was. Anyways. The party consisted of a Cleric named Apple, a Rogue named Quickly, a paladin named Magrese, and a Wizard played by my brother who was named something wizardly like Turmon or Carnin or something. Oh, and a flaky Barbarian who didn't show up to like half the sessions named Mister Hilter.

Their plan was to get into one of the abandoned buildings surrounding the building, throw a grappling hook to the roof of the building, and get in through a skylight up there. But they first wanted to look around the building and see how many guards might see them if they did that. Here's what happened.

Quickly stealthily creeps around the perimeter in the shadows, the two guards in the front not noticing him. He sees two guards standing in front of the backdoor. Then he rolls a 1 on stealth. The guards see him immediately, turn their heads and demand that he get out, as the auction is not starting yet, and he looks suspicious. Quickly responds by drawing and firing his crossbow at one of the men, and rolls ANOTHER nat 1. The bowstring snaps as he cocks it back. The guards run up to him. Thankfully, Apple comes out from behind the corner and bribes them with a ridiculous sum of gold to shut up and let Quickly go. They still got what they wanted, which was knowing how many guards were posted, and when the auction would start. (The Wizard had asked the guards up front while Quickly went and ruined his crossbow).

So the party returned, situated in an abandoned building near the auction house an hour before the auction would start. They threw a grappling hook as planed, the paladin and cleric just barely made it across with how much ACP they had. They moved towards the skylight. The rogue asked 'So, how are we getting in without them noticing us?'. The Paladin laughs and belly-flops into the window in full plate. He gets cut for 3 damage, and then another 10 from the fall, taking out around half his HP from one stupid act. Everyone groans. Quickly throws a rope down and begins climbing down the rope. Just as he does so- the owner of the auction house comes out from his office, and sees the Glass-covered Paladin rifling through his stuff. He does not see the rope, as Quickly hid behind a box and Apple pulled up the rope.

The owner pulls out a heavy crossbow and goes defensive. The paladin offers him a bribe of 500 gold if he'll just be quiet. I quickly check the paladin code and tell him that he is now an ex-paladin. Because bribery. The table goes silent. He looks at me. 'So does that mean I can kill him?' he asks. I said 'if you want to not be neutral anymore.' He whips out his sword and stabs the man in the chest, killing him. The man was NG. He turned into an anti paladin. The entire table laughed their asses off.

That was the first session. He remained an anti-paladin for the rest of the game.

This is the tale of Maulgrum Daimondeath vs The Most High Lizard King. It is a gruesome one. It beings in a wasteland city- the only one for hundreds of miles- called Saint's Crossing. Malgrum is a Cybernetic Hobgoblin Katana-weilding Ninja afflicted with psychosis, who has power to rival that of an anime protagonist. Him and a group of adventurers had wandered off from saints crossing and made a fortress out in the wasteland. They were protected by the Lizard King and his people, who lived in the only jungle area that we knew of. In our party was a human sorcerer named Calixtria who worshiped Calistria. The Lizard King had taken a liking to Calixtria. They fell in love together. One night, after returning from an adventure we went to the bar in Saint's Crossing, and both Calixtria and Maulgrum proceeded to get abhorrently drunk, and they bought a room together at an inn and slept there. Nothing unusual happened, they just went to bed.

But that all changed when they woke up. Maulgrum's psychotic side took over. But he didn't kill Calixtria in her sleep, oh no. He convinced her- though insanely high bluff- that they had 'gotten it on' last night. Seriously. What Maulgrum didn't know, however, was that Mr. Lizard King was scrying on them at that very moment, as he had heard that his love had gone to the room of hobgoblin scum last night. He was convinced that Maulgrum had taken Calixtria from him. Then things got bad.

The Lizard King teleports next to Maulgrum. He claws him twice and bites- critically hitting- for upwards of 300 damage. Maulgrum is instantly slain. But as I was saying, Maulgrum has the power of an anime protagonist. His clone awakens on a far away cliff, smelling the sandy air. He clicks his teleport boots together, appears next to The Lizard King, and stabs him 10 times with his Katanas. the Lizard King's body is reduced to mincemeat. But what Maulgrum didn't know is that the Lizard King had a Clone of his own (yay rhymes) waiting in his throne room.

The Lizard King appears in his throne room, recollecting his own death. He decides that Maulgrum, Saint's Crossing, our fortress and everyone in it are too dangerous to be left alive. He declares war upon the entirety of the wasteland, and marches his lizard army to kill us all. And with that, the horrible mess that was the Saint's Crossing Summer Campaign ended.

Glorious.

That actually reminds me of a player in a shattered star game I was playing in. He practically refused combat against our EVIL enemies, despite being CG, and would randomly attack party members 'Cuz it's funny!'. He insisted that his character (a half-orc gunslinger) be called 'Pinhead' whenever someone interacted with him. His laugh sounded like that screaming goat video. I am not exaggerating when I say that. He died after he gave a fisherman 50 gp to sail him to an island, realized that the fisherman now had 50 gp on him, and wanted to kill him for the money. He pushed the man off of the boat, realized that his money was still on the fisherman, jumped in after him with no ranks in swim, and drowned. The funniest part was that he blamed the GM for his death.

I have disagree again. I think it's no so much a terrible character so much as the dice in terms of saves working against you. Now if you played the Mesmerist as a Fighter using a Two Handed weapon. While ignoring to use the Hypnotic Stare and no Mesmerists trick then I would say a terrible character.

Perhaps terrible wasn't the right word, but it felt fitting. This is definitely the least effective (or 'Most frustratingly weak') character I have ever played, and regardless of weather that's from a poor build or dice rolls, that's why I posted it on this thread.

Maybe this is me being cynical, but are you sure that your GM isn't fudging rolls or changing the writeup of NPCs? Frost Giants have a +6 will save. There is a 1 in 1000 chance that the Frost Giant would make those saves. If that sort of thing is the norm, not the exception, then something fishy is up.

Keep in mind, that frost giant was one of the most extreme examples. I have succeeded with spells before, and usually when it counted the most (such as causing a boss to drop his weapon while being attacked by the barbarian).

Our GM has a penchant for rolling really, really well. I doubt he was fudging (I say was because he now rolls on a dice tray in front of us), there's not really a lot I can do to prove it. And even after rolling on the dice tray, nothing has changed success-wise.

On the plus side, I just got a +4 headband of charisma and a +2 charisma ioun stone last session that I haven't tried out yet, and that bumps my DC's so high that I think it's actually impossible to succeed on the saves for basic giants. We shall see how that plays out.

I have a character named Poshment in a Giantslayer campaign. We are almost done with the 4th book. Poshment is a Gnomish mesmerist, and I made him with the specific idea that giants have poor willpower saves. I felt as if I was- in a way- gaming the system. I could not have been more wrong. From levels 1-11 Poshment has maintained a constant 20%ish success rate in forcing GIANTS to fail WILLPOWER SAVES. Up until this point, I was not even aware that a frost giant could make a DC 25 will save three times in a row. I am now enlightened, and would prefer not to be. He is by far the least effective character I have ever had. And yet I so do enjoy playing him. You know the saying 'absence makes the heart grow fonder'? Imagine that, except when the absence has stopped, giants kill each other without endangering the party at all. He has built up a magnificent relationship with the party cleric, (the only other party member from trunau) and when all else fails in way of spells, he has a rod of wonder that causes people out of game to laugh at the very though of it's use.

Overall, he may be a terrible character by measures beyond my control, but he is too fun to play for me to ever consider making another character to replace him.

Your mythic power doesn't give a darn about the negative levels and behaves as it normally does. As for your ki being reduced... could you rephrase the question? Your max ki is reduced, your current ki gets back to where it started.

My question was: When you spend two ki, your max ki is temporarily reduced by two as well. If you spend one mythic power to gain those two ki points, does it still reduce the size of your ki pool, or does the mythic just count as the ki pool that is being reduced? Does that make sense?

Just posted something about this, actually. Deadhand stylist master of many styles monk, with deadhead master at 6th level, because you don't need to meet the prerequisites for the feats. So a 6th level character dealing 8 negative energy levels with one punch from pummeling style is pretty darn scary. I only got away with it because everyone else is overpowered as well.

Grand Lodge

I have a character in a mythic home-brew campaign that is quite powerful. He is a mythic Deadhand stylist monk, and using the master of many styles archetype, I have attained the Deadhand master feat at 6th level. My GM let me go through with this, even after I told him what the full extent of my power was. But that's not the issue. I am wondering how the Mythic Ki ability from champion mythic path (the ability that allows you to spend 1 mythic power to temporarily gain 2 ki) interacts with Deadhand style. It says in deadhead style: 'As long as the foe is affected by the temporary negative levels, you can’t recover the ki points you spent, effectively reducing the size of your ki pool.' So I can spend one mythic power to inflict two negative energy levels. Great. But what happens to that mythic power that I spent on it? Does my mythic power per day decrease, or do the negative energy levels disappear at the end of the round, because mythic ki only adds to your ki pool temporarily?

Thanks in advance!

You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry, be happy

Don't worry, be happy
Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style
Ain't got no gal to make you smile
Don't worry, be happy
'Cause when you worry your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don't worry, be happy

Don't worry, be happy now
(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don't worry

Now there, is this song I wrote
I hope you learned note for note
Like good little children, don't worry, be happy
Now listen to what I said, in your life expect some trouble
When you worry you make it double
But don't worry, be happy, be happy now

don't worry

(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh oo-ooh ooh oo-ooh) don't bring everybody down like this

don't worry

How do you "bard"? Elementary! You're still a 3/4 class, so your feats will largely be the same as those you are familiar with. However, now you have access to bardsong and limited spellcasting. Your spell selections should help you get into favorable positions, since after round one you probably won't want to cast. Bardsong will fill the gap between 3/4 and full BAB, with the added benefit of giving the same bonus to your allies. Be sure to invest in Perform skills, since they pull double duty for bards. Versatile Performance will make you the star player in skill challenges. So, pick a combat style (I prefer archery) and tailor your feats to that style, grabbing Lingering Performance if you can find the room.

I agree with this, but I think that picking up lingering performance is very important and should be done at 5th level at the latest. There's nothing worse than running out of performance rounds, because then you're just a rogue without sneak attack. Oratory is a fantastic secondary performance skill to pick up, as it requires no hands. The only reason it's secondary is that you can buy masterwork instruments to give you a bonus that also applies to versatile performance.

You can play any core race (or any race without a -4 penalty to charisma) well as a bard. I actually am running a dwarven bard right now, and even with a 14 cha, you can still pull off some cool spells and have a high perform skill.
