Doonamis: I'm rarely inclined to side with those who accuse the forum's moderators of censorship - I've heard that rhetoric countless times before, and it never ends well for people like me. You're not making a very good case for yourself with rumor-mongering and accusations, or by directing users to external sites where you can throw around whatever wild claims you please.

GM: All right, let's see... your +5 sword bounces off your foe, rebounding into your +5 armor and causing both to shatter into tiny fragments. Don't worry, though; if you go find a member of your fighter's guild, you can go on a quest and pay a few hundred gold to repair your gear. Oh, also, you can only use clubs and hide armor until you do that.

What captain yesterday said.
Also, you're going a long way to attack certain creators' work. I mean, you had to reach for an unreleased AP to make your attack. I know why certain parts of the Internet don't like Hell's Rebels, after all... and it's easy to see the connection between that and an AP led by Ms. Frasier.
It's probably nothing. Just curious, is all. Very curious.

Which Golarion-based faction are all members of the base wizard class assumed to be part of? Which factions are the source of all the problematic spells?
So... yeah. See overpowered* archetype, reprint overpowered archetype, fix overpowered archetype. I don't get why you're all talking about this like there's a conspiracy and an agenda, when what you're describing is the repair process.
*"Overpowered" being the perception of the writers/developers/etc. involved, not an incontrovertible statement of authority. Don't @ me, I don't care.
In our defense, we mistook him for an aerospace engineer after he made a long list of criticisms and suggestions about how the (very much still-attached) wing needed to be improved.

I didn't know it was PFS legal, but that indicates to me that the PFS organizers and I agree that it isn't a problem.
Except that, after being legal for several years, it was removed from PFS legality - one of only a few mechanics to suffer that fate.
It appears that, after vigorous field testing, they reached a different conclusion.
I'm guessing that this is another case of d20pfsrd stripping the product identity from the statblock, making it confusing for anyone who doesn't have the real statblock. Since the only "harbinger daemon" in print thus far is Zelishkar of the Bitter Flame, it's probably his statblock you're actually looking at.
Step 1: Assume a position that is only supported by the rules in the absence of logic and reading comprehension, in a medium notorious for people arguing nonsense positions to cause trouble.
Step 2: React aggressively to any suggestion that you might be incorrect, or that you might be arguing nonsense (again, in a medium where this is a common practice).
Step 3: Repeat until the forums are utterly useless for actual questions.
Indeed. I'm just indescribably bitter about that entire situation.
What worries me is the possibility of another loss, from the left this time.
