clearly it's a fountain of wishing... 8^) throw in your two copper, close your eyes and make a wish.


using lightning bolt is an excellent retort to someone with a tarp in front of them claiming it stops line of effect...

advice for players - just get off the railroad(at times), ditch the brass nose-ring and have some fun in the scenarios.

what ever happened to the para-countess's love child?

it's much funnier when they fall face first into a cream pie or get dunked in a big bucket of cold water...

ore-id'ah fried him with that spell...


the Spell Sage is interesting but ultimately I think you trade more away than it is worth. I think it is another safe design that undershot the power curve intentionally.

Bonded Object(amulet) is a free top Spell Level spell {of RndDwn[(CL+1)/2] SplLvl} and allows purchasing/crafting at half cost an Aegis of Recovery(2d8+3 cure when you fall down) or Amulet of Spell Mastery(+6 spell levels). That is a bigger issue in PFS than a home game where the GM can cut you some breaks for taking this class.

The school ability you lose is (diviner) +Wiz/2 INIT bonus, acting in a surprise round, a std actn tch of +4 insight bonus to a d20 roll in the round say 7 times a day, and some other stuff about scrying and being scried, and ONE extra spell per castable spell level. Yeah...


Armor makes hot dogs and with a big mug of beer you'd have a Frank 'n Stein.


Remember, if a strange wizard tries to touch you when you don't want to be touched, yell out "doctor stranger danger!"


Alchemists, Potion brewers, Witches, and Hedge magicians seem to have the most in game use for this Craft or Profession Skill.
Labels might read, "Artisan Crafted Love Potion #9, ... all unnatural ingredients"...


for Monk's is there a Kung Pow recipe? ;^)

... so a pantomime horse saddle is exotic? 8^)
I assume such creatures can wear a saddle but it gives no mechanical benefit to the wearer or the rider...

It's the Spiny 'Redbull' Starfish on tiny rollerskates...


Change your name to 'Phillus Coulson Jr.' and get a SHIELD, alternativly you can go with 'Ashia Williams' and a chaisaw arm... they have chainsaws in PF Tech Guide. B^)

I think you've hit rock bottom with that one.

Hittin rock bottom almost struck a chord, making a few halfsteps is a minor interval on the way to the major key in your professional success. 8^0 bad bardic puns and Grimlock bardic skill Perform(Lithophone)

This is actually very important to the continued existence of oils of allfood, since otherwise it would waste its effects on its container.

That's the rub of using oils...

So which is more Evil?

Leaving a person lying on the ground bleeding out (or not) in the middle of a monster-infested wilderness (where plenty of monsters are KNOWN to GAIN strength from somewhat living bodies they find for plenty of reasons)

OR

Finishing the job and ensuring they at least have a proper burial/corpse disposal (time permitting)?

not casting Death Knell and wasting precious resources... ;-P
Euthanasia is a different matter and not what the OP was talking about.

I'm all for helping youth in Tian Xia... Hail Iuz! (I was in bandit kingdoms after all)

as intent is hard to read in posts, these are humorous asides.

on a more serious note - Outlining various acts of Evil would simply make the Guide longer than it currently is and not add much to PFS. In fact a laundry list of Evil acts would simply add fuel to people arguing that their specific act was NOT on the list and thus not Evil. If a Player does something Evil the GM issues a warning before implementing the act and if the Player insists on doing it then they get the consequences. If things escalate usually there is a VO around to help clarify things. VOs have meetings and discuss these kinds of things and try to keep their community informed and having fun at PFS/SFS/ACG sessions.

I keep wishing they'd bring back the various Faction traits that went away when their affiliated Factions were retired/reformed (Qadira's Eastern Mysteries, Cheliax's Fires of Hell, Shadow Lodge's Medic, Lantern Lodge's Meridian Strike, etc etc), or just make them available again somehow, somewhere.

It's not like Scarab Sages will ever let liches into their ranks or get raised from the dead at half cost and later necro'd... 8^)


Silly... it's because nobody would buy a book about Gandalf. It's about the adventures of some half pints fumbling about....

oooh a grousing thread
I found Celestial Healing rather amusing.
Ring of Seven Lovely Colors shows that style trumps balance at times.
some stuff is just purposefully overcomplicated and funny - Arithmancy! Sacred Geometry! No - just wait until it's your turn to start doing the calculations or rolling dice... yeah... clearly the current date, time, and star chart position of your PC's birth star needs to be added to the calculations. Take the cube root of 2's compliment of your sum to streamline the calculations.

class guides

If you're in a home game Enchanters, Illusionists are best with people, not so good with monsters. Necromancers work better in a home game format due to their legacy of minions, same with Artificers with a legacy of items or constructs. It is too many details for Organized Play.

In Organized Play you have Blasters, Diviners, Transmuters, and some oddballs where it's more about flavor than power. I tend to run some oddballs for fun.

So Kitsune, +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma +2 Intelligence and –2 Strength. {Keen Kitsune}
I'd go Str 8, Dex 16, Con 10, Int 18, Wis 10, Cha 14 {incl race @20pt buy}

Magical Knack(Wiz)
Wayang Splhntr(spl tbd)
Point Blank or Wpn Fnss.
and then it depends...
I'd dip into Brawler 1 {martial flexibility} or Monk(Flowing) 2 {+3 saves, Wis to AC{swap WIS & CHA}, wpns, deal with chargers and lockdown specialists}
then switch to Diviner, Evoc Admixture, or Transmutation. You could do a Brown Fur Transmuter. Take a bonded item amulet or maaaaybe a familiar with a transmuter or conjurer(familiars tend to die at higher levels due to collateral damage). Conjurers require 2-3 feats so there's a feat tax. IMO Thassalonians are too specialized.
Unch Rogue 2 works well with Transmuter and DEX dmg for a wpn.
You'll need a belt of STR and then CON.
Headband of INT then WIS.
Cestus, Gladius, Crossbow(due to STR), earthbreaker/lucerne hammer.


I think the problem for multiclassing might come from the introductory text.
"While few contest the seductive allure of commanding arcane and occult powers, there are those wizards who become obsessed with the natural mysteries of black powder. Combining this emerging technology with their considerable arcane skills, they transform firearms into a powerful focus."
That sure sounds like Wizard spells going into firearms given it is a Wizard archtype. Yes, I bolded wizards in the quote as 'they' and 'their' means wizards. This would mean that the exception in the FAQ applies. Could you even funnel sorcerer spells into this wizard ability? (relax, I'm just brainstorming a bit)
Is the opening text considered to be in the ability for the purposes of the FAQ? I think that's a matter of mincing the text. Personally for me the classes are closely related and use the same spell lists so I don't forecast a problem. However read on...

School of the Gun is a tricky ability. 4 Wizard schools require two spell slots. Going into Sorcerer you work around that restriction in a way. The restriction still applies to a spell funneled into the firearm and fortunately Sorcerer and Wizards use the same list. This is supported by the General Rule in the FAQ.

If the Bloodline Power is of an opposing school(GM interpretation required) it may trigger the restriction. I'm thinking Elemental bloodline with an Evocation restriction (I can't imagine WHY a spellslinger would take Evocation as an opposition school, but there you have it).

Nice tangent, but I was referring to Hao Jin, the sorceress who created the tapestry, then later disappeared, not the tapestry itself.

Season 8 is a veritable jinn joint {evil grin, how jin you ask?} so she could be amongst the ifrit, but the temple of Abba-dar has a story on contract.
