Alternate Form (Su): You can turn you entire body into a weapon of your type. In this form, you are considered an intelligent magic weapon. You can resize yourself to small, medium, or large as a move action. In this form you cannot move on your own (unless you have an intelligent item power that grants you a movement speed). You possess empathy, speech, and senses (120 ft); see page 533 core rule book. You possess your own mental ability scores, but no physical ability scores (do not adjust statistics). You retain your own HP, Saves, Feats, Class features, and skills (though some may not be usable due to your form) and a hardness equal to your HD. If you can cast spells, you cannot do must use still spell and eschew materials to do so while in this form. You cannot be enchanted by an outside force, but see Awakened below. This is considered a polymorph effect.

Awakened: Your natural weapon (granted by your race, not other natural weapons) gains a +1 (or higher) enhancement bonus, as if it were enchanted. You can trade out these bonuses when you gain a level for special weapon properties (Flaming, Keen, Etc). You may not possess a bonus greater than +5, as normal. These bonuses carry over into your Alternate Form. If you possess more than one of your natural weapons (from the dual wielding feat), only one of them is enchanted.

Lesser Power: At 5th level, you can grant your natural weapon (granted by your race, not other natural weapons) a power from the intelligent item powers list (page 534, core rule book). This power must have a base price modifier of 5,000 gp or less. This power carries over to your alternate form. You cannot choose "item has 5 skill ranks".

Greater Power: This functions as Lesser Power, but you may choose one ability of up to 10,000 GP. You cannot choose "item has 5 skill ranks", "item has 10 skill ranks", or "item can change shape into one other form of the same size".

When combined with the curse that grants immunity to fatigue, you can rage every other round making excellent use of times per rage powers.

slightly off topic:
This and the other drow thread gave me two master chemist ideas. One is an elf that becomes a drow as his mutagenic form, the other is a drow trying to turn into an elf through alchemy.

The only real complaints I've heard about the summoner are directed at the master summoner and the synthesist archetypes, I would look at modifying / banning those and leaving the regular summoner alone.

I would also point out that the iconic pet class is a 3/4 bab class, and is a full spell caster (in armor) on top of that.

But the synthesist is key to those who want to play monsterous characters, although I do admit it is kinda easy to create a broken character with it. So maybe just tone it down a bit.

*snip*

In Pathfinder the negative levels are Permanent

reincarnate spell

Seems people were powergaming or over abusing the spell.. and Pathfinder fixed it... First time I've ever been Raised or Reincarnated

Some abilities and spells (such as raise dead) bestow permanent level drain on a creature. These are treated just like temporary negative levels, but they do not allow a new save each day to remove them. Level drain can be removed through spells like restoration. Permanent negative levels remain after a dead creature is restored to life. A creature whose permanent negative levels equal its Hit Dice cannot be brought back to life through spells like raise dead and resurrection without also receiving a restoration spell, cast the round after it is restored to life.

I came up with 360, as the cost of him casting all of his 1st/2nd level spells.
Very well. If we're ignoring any other gear that a person might have, any expenses for utilizing said person, I choose 360 warriors with clubs and shortspears. I like this outcome even more.

Back in 3.5 mercenaries were a couple of silver a day, and they came with their own armor and weapons.

So my 2d6 (no save) has an almost 60% chance of outright killing every dude in your formation in one hit (hp 7), if they have 8 hp its a 47% guaranteed kill. Its a 2nd level spell. You dont know where it came from or who cast it necessarily. indeed I'd be inclined to throw it at you at the last possible second to add shock and awe to a charge against your (now shattered) shield wall.

The other point is I dont even really need that many wizards, there's a bunch of classes can Stone Call. Hell I reckon we could even make a few select limited use items that have it as an effect nice and cheap.

So lets rewind.

All yous soldiers are humans, and their feats were toughness (which will mean they are all badly injured) and the Teamwork feat (which doesn't help them).

It has no chance to kill them, it would require 21 points of damage to kill them (negative con score) without toughness, 24 with. The third level cleric's channel energy heals the same amount of damage your spell deals.

They devote a few pages to this in complete warrior (3.5). The topics there were invisibility/scrying/teleportation for reconnaissance. Use of monsters on the battlefield. Numerous low level clerics with wands of cure walking along behind the front line picking up fallen soldiers. etc. Giants are basically walking siege engines.

So I have found that some armor enchantments are not listed as a +1 modifier or +2 etc.

Glamor for example is listed as +2700 gp

Does this mean that to add this to armor it does not count as a +x?

You are correct. It is a flat cost added to the armor, not an enhancement bonus.

Less Christmas tree effect with magic items, fewer/more difficult access to world shaping powers.

The fiend binder prestige class(tome of magic, 3.5), says that binding fiends (demons, devils, etc) to fight other evil creatures was not evil, but since binding them amounts to slavery, it is not good either. With this in mind, I would say neutral.
That would be all good and well if the Book of Vile Darkness didn't say the exact opposite.

I wouldn't know, I don't have the book of vile darkness. All I can do is quote what I have.

I am an avid LARPER. In my LARP we have skills but no real attributes. We roll play our characters the way we see fit, but our characters are limited in part by us. In Pathfinder, or any game that defines our characters mechanically, I feel it is "proper" to roleplay based off of your characters stats.

New question: Page 162 "becoming a word caster" it says "A character who elects to be a wordcaster in a spellcasting class typically cannot use the spells of that class (though there are feats that allow a wordcaster to learn and use a limited number of spells; see the sidebar on page 166)..."
The sidebar does not have any feats for learning spells, and it foes not address it. In the APG, They have the feat Expanded Arcana, could you use this to learn "normal spells"?

Off shot of another thread, this is for the non link aspects of Legend of Zelda. Races, monsters, etc.
Right now I am posting the Dekubaba. And will add in some races and other monsters shortly.

I would say ranger (skirmisher variant, no spell casting) with the sword and board or archery combat style. Make him an elf or half-elf (in Legend of Zelda, Link was a Hylian, which was distinct from a human which also existed). Maybe multiclass into fighter for some feats. Your Animal Companion would be Epona. Get leadership and get some sort of fey as your cohort if you really want to go all out.
Half-Elf
Str 16 (+2 Racial)
Dex 14
Con 12
Int 13
Wis 12
Cha 10

Elf
Str 16
Dex 14 (+2 Racial)
Con 12 (-2 Racial)
Int 13 (+2 Racial)
Wis 12
Cha 10

Thanks for the advice. I really like the one quarter rule.

So, from what I've read, usually people get a new feat every 5000 xp after 6th level, but is that really the case?

It seems too quick for me.

The person who designed e6 did a lot of testing and 5000 XP provided a steady rate of advancement (They were originally using 3000 XP).

No need for paladin code debate (even though I contributed to that thread jack). I don't have any good stories about paladins.

The new Paladin, and his (overpowered, some would say... but that’s not the point of this thread) abilities attract some players just because of the powers, not the idea of the class.

The consequence, in my experience, is a lot of really “lame” paladin RP.
On to the point of this thread: What’s the WORST paladin RP you’ve met? (and please, don’t take it personally because you actually play a paladin just like an example… let’s just share stories, if possible)

I’ll begin: I’m DMing a campaign where this Paladin acts completely arrogant towards defeated enemies. He actually mocks defeated foes, wants to torture (yes, torture) them… but the best happened in the last session:

“and those are the slaves” (NPC)
“Really? Orc slaves? Nice.” (PAL)
“Nice? That's certainly amusing coming from you.”(NPC)
“Yes, at least they’re being put to use.”

And the he proceeded (out of game) to defend this paladin code =)
At which point he reverted to a common fighter.

Got anything to share, any of you? :D

As long as slavery was not illegal by the local laws it would not go against the paladin code, as upholding personal freedom is a chaotic standpoint.

EDITED

"skills that restrict who can achieve certain results" like how you need trapfinding or similar ability to disarm magical traps, etc.

Your description makes it sound like it can be good or evil but it's abilities seem evil (dark blooded, Dark vengeance), Why?

I am working on a full conversion of Diablo II to Pathfinder. I am going to try to keep it balanced with the rest of PF and work with existing classes and abilities.
