Heck, half the page length is just all the ancestries. Phew, that took awhile.

Let me open with the fact that this guide, like all the others of yours I've read (Rogue/Fighter/Bard) is dynamite, and I appreciate the work you've put into it.

I feel like a lot of 2e class guides end up getting bogged down in the Ancestries part. There's so much more that goes into an ancestry from a mechanical standpoint now; each has what, 4-6 Heritages, and well over a dozen Ancestry feats, and it all needs evaluation.

That being said, I'm still about 80% likely to just play an orc anyway (for better or worse, at least I know what I want), so I end up flying past the whole thing, which if I'm scrolling on my phone, I'm gonna be a while.

Is there a way to mitigate the War-and-Peace length of the Ancestry section, and before that, is that even a problem worth solving (for all I know this really is just a "me problem," but I wanted to at least open the question to consideration)?

Either way, all the time you've put in pays off, and this reader appreciates it.

Maybe someone could help me understand, given a big pile of loot, some of which might be magical, what's the "intended" workflow for detecting and identifying things?

I'd have thought it's something like, "Use Detect Magic, moving stuff in and out of range until you've seen what 'pings' vs what doesn't, then take the Identify Magic action on all items that pinged." I figured using Read Aura at that point just makes the identification easier (+2 circ bonus). Is there a piece I'm missing?

Someone in your party needs to have Detect Magic and/or Read Aura. But there's little point in having multiple people with it.

If you were strapped for cantrip choices, you could get by with just Detect Magic, right? Read Aura seems like it's just going to get bonuses to an action you're able to otherwise do without it.

Hey there, thanks a ton for responding.

Yeah, as I started digging into this I found that out. I'm thinking I might pick up that adventure and poke around it.

Are you familiar with that adventure? If so, 1) Would the location be transferable? I'd like to move it to something inland from Otari. 2) Should I be worried about a total lack of spellcasting?

Either way, thanks for your time.

Having read the adventure some, the first thing I'm realizing is I'll probably need to "bridge" to this adventure with something else, to get them up to 4th or so.

(Dives back in.)

Hi there,

So last year, I ran the BB for my kids and it went pretty well. I'm now in the position of having to work on a follow up adventure.

The boys have a barbarian (was silver dragon instinct, will be changing to animal instinct tyrannosaurus when Howl drops tomorrow, because dinosaur), and a Liberator Champion. I had an Inventor tag along as a DMPC, to provide a little extra muscle, and by the end of Menace Under Otari, they were all level 3.

For the follow-up, I wanted to give them an undead stomping adventure (mainly because of the sheer glee with which the son playing the barbarian went on a nat-20-fueled rampage in the crypt room), and I found the old 1e adventure, Revenge of the Kobold King. I figured there's kobolds, it's situated near a lumber camp, it'd probably translate pretty well. I was figuring instead of random shadows reanimating the kobolds, I'd make it a few acolytes of the Whispering Way coming into the area and making them their "muscle" to help depopulate the area around Absalom.

Has anyone done a 2e conversion of this adventure, and if so, 1) are the boys still to low level to ride this ride, and 2) any spots in it that will particularly mess up a party with no spellcaster? If point #1 is true, any recommendations on how to proceed?

Thanks so much for your time. Have a great day.

Later on,

Hey there,

So I'm about to try running this AP as an intro to PF2 for my kids (side note: wish me luck, I haven't GMed anything in like, 25 years!).

I know that this is supposed to be a more primitive part of the world, and that makes some items tough to justify, moreso for a small group like the Broken Tusks. Like, a steel sword isn't something you can get just any darn place (side note #2: it seems a bit mean to give the Tusks Sarenrae as a patron deity, neener-neener-no-scimitars-for-you-Cleric!). But I wanted some sort of mechanism in place to let the boys have a chance to hunt up the things they might need to make stuff like a composite bow, or a suit of hide armor, or what have you. I started getting an idea in my head, and I was hoping to run it by you fine folks, see if it's worth refining.

What I came to was the idea of, I guess a Downtime activity, whose name I haven't yet decided on. It would basically be like an Earn Income check, probably using Survival (or Hunting Lore if you've got it), and because money isn't really a thing that has a ton of use to the Kellids, you'd take your Income in an abstraction I'm currently calling "Scrounge." The players can then use their stash of "Scrounge GPs" to pay the costs associated with Crafting region-appropriate items.

Is something like this feasible? Is it worth doing? Is there even time in the AP to allow for this? (Like, if there's not time to allow for this AND Crafting, maybe allow these checks to be made incidentally alongside other stuff?) Has someone already come up with a better way and I'm needlessly trying to reinvent the wheel? Am I even making a lick of sense?

Look, if you made it this far, I appreciate your time and patience. Thanks, and if you've got any constructive criticism, I'm all ears.

Have a great day.


Yeah guys, sorry! Last week was just a combo plate of suck (work stress, pre-holiday nonsense, and a contact-tracing scare for my kid, the one unvaccinated member of my family). I'm digging out now, and very very sorry for being incommunicado like that!

NGL, Lukas was a little distressed at that comment, but everyone else in the "green room of my mind" was all like, "WHOOOOOO!"

As a player that often struggles with a good name, these four all seem to have got it going on.

I'll get an alias up tonight, and incorporate the elements discussed above. (Didn't have a chance to work on it today, was over my BIL's house helping him deal with his basement, which got 6" of water in Ida.)

Ooh, like a descendant of Terendelev (or a related dragon

That's exactly what I'm aiming for. Anton's family are descended from Terendelev, and her death sparked his power-up.

That's not bad! Maybe his "awakening" (or whatever it's called when one Mythics Up) is what gave Anton the opportunity to overpower his captors.

As I said, I'm very unfamiliar with the AP and its environs, so until I get my feet under me I'll take all the assists I can get. ;)

On a related note, I had forgotten that divine bond is a "pick once and it's done" affair. I'll probably take armor as my choice, chiefly because it's the option that's unique to the archetype.

So if I'm sticking to reach weapons in the CRB, that's glaive, guisarme, or ranseur. I'll probably go guisarme or glaive, probably come down to coin toss in the end.

Now on to the important stuff: namely, where was this guy the day Terendelev fell? He had to have been out of Kenabres, right? No way he'd have not been there for the action otherwise. Any suggestions?

Good morning!

OK, mis-read on my part, I got it in my head that just the pick of Race had to be from Core Races. As far as the weapon goes, I can swap out to whatever reach weapons are in the CRB easily enough.

I kind of see the EH draconic bloodline as a mixed bag, that yes, skews offensive, but also has defense and move/utility options. I can walk away from EH if I have to, but if anything is up for consideration, I'd ask it to be the racial trait (again, all it does on its own is 10-ft Darkvision & LLV).

As I said before, that understanding of reach meshes with how I understood it, so no real conflict there.

Hi Leo,

Your points in order:

1) If GM thinks I should leave that one on the table, that's perfectly fine with me.

2) About Draconic Heritage and the claws...

You wrote:
I think the intent was that you would have to choose one or the other each round.

It's already my understanding that's how it works. If you take a hand off a 2H to free up a claw like that, that by itself is a free action, but you can't then "rehand" until your next turn. Exactly like you said, you can't use that to simultaneously threaten adjacent with the claw, and at reach with the weapon.

3) Sure, having that flexibility will be huge (Grumbaki and I are both hungrily eyeing fortification armor in another game we're in). I just had my fingers crossed that I didn't lose the option to shift to offense when the additional defense isn't needed.

Have a good one!

aka Redblade

Oh, and he's got the archetype Divine Defender, figured that fit the idea.

EDIT to ask: Looking at the wording of the archetype, I'm a little unclear about it's Divine Bond. Does the modification of Divine Bond add a third option, to modify armor, or is that the only option they can use? If Hero Lab is accurate, it's the former, but I just want to make sure.

Well thank you!

I'll show a little ankle on what I've got so far.

So he's a human with the Draconic Heritage racial option (which for most purposes means I trade out Skilled for 10' Darkvision and LLV).

Planned future pickups include Lunge, Vital Strike, and maaaaybe Shield Focus/Shield Brace.

(I still have to throw a few BG skill points around, and gear him up, natch.)

LMK if that all passes the smell test. Have a great evening!

Oh, you...!

I hope it's not too forward of me to post and say hi, but I figured I'd at least introduce myself while power's still on (I'm in NJ and getting hit by the storm).

So Grumbaki asked me if I'm interested, and yes, I am. I have some starting ideas for both crunch and fluff of the character laid down. Mechanically, I understand I'll be a Guardian, and I figured I'd do that by wailing on guys with a reach weapon (I'm thinking a bardiche). Fluff-wise, the idea I had working in my noggin is that Anton's family are very minor nobility, with a secret that they are in fact scions of Terendelev, so now he's like "the last of the line". I was gonna go human with the Draconic Heritage alternate racial (and eventually pick up Eldritch Heritage to boot).

I've never played this AP or Mythic stuff, so I'm still getting my feet under me. If anything there sounds good bad or otherwise, please feel free to let me know.

Have a great evening!

How do you feel about Tengu? For some reason, I just keep picturing my bard as a hardened version of the singing rooster from the animated Robin Hood movie. I am certainly not tied to it, though.

Thirty-ish years ago, I was running a supers RPG in which I had a "black ops chicken" who was basically Foghorn Leghorn pulling the Punisher's schtick, so this is me not throwing stones! :D

Ah, okay. But now that's got me thinking whether I should gussy up my build with anything from the APG... :)

If that was to me, sure, but everything on the guy in question is CRB, so it shouldn't be an issue.

I'm intrigued. I was playing a dragon barb in a Fall of Plaguestone game that I'd like to give another spin. I'll gin up some backstory explaining how he got to Otari and make it happen.

I haven't had a chance to work on this yet, and it's iffy that I'd get something together under the wire. Not saying I'm out, just don't be surprised if I don't have something by tonight.

Okay, I can gather the ability scores parts from other posts. Let's see where this takes me...

5d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 4, 5, 2) = 21 = 15
5d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 3, 2, 5) = 19 = 14
5d6 ⇒ (1, 1, 6, 2, 6) = 16 = 14
5d6 ⇒ (1, 3, 4, 5, 4) = 17 = 13
5d6 ⇒ (1, 1, 1, 3, 3) = 9 = 7
5d6 ⇒ (5, 6, 5, 5, 3) = 24 = 16
5d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 3, 6, 5) = 17 = 14

Okay, that is pretty usable. As I said I'm away, but we'll be getting home tomorrow. I'll try and get things in shape for a Sniper Rogue by Sunday.

I'm away for a few days, but a Scout/Sniper rogue sounds like it might be a fit here, no? How long do I have to get something together?

EDIT to add: also, what are the build parameters?

Tell me "Of Wolf And Man" would get the treatment for this. Lie to me if you have to, okay?


Hi there!

So I've got a half-baked idea for a half-orc swashbuckler, who tried making a name for himself in Absalom as "The Urgir Kid," passing off as some badass from Belkzen. He then proceeded to attract the attention of some actual tough guys from the motherland. Rather than stick around and risk embarrassment or disembowelment, he fled to Otari and tried to lay low there. Of course I'm figuring it won't be that simple...

Thanks. I have no recollection that I ever saw that book, but good to know it's there. (Raises the question of where I did read it...)

Have a good one!

Hey there,

So I know (or think I know) that I read some piece of game lore in a 2nd edition book about the orcs of Belkzen basically telling the Whispering Way that they could shove all the way off. But I'll be damned if I can find it now. I thought it was in one of the books I own (2e CRB, the APG, and the Ancestry Guide), but I can't find the passage now. Can anyone direct me toward the text in question? Or if I'm just hallucinating, let me know that? ;)

Well I'm not ditching the whole character. I'm just changing his secondary focus, which was far from set in stone. Trust me, if I wasn't already down with it as an option, I wouldn't have done it. DSP stuff always twists me into knots while I'm building anyway, so there was always going to be a point when I looked like a dog chasing his tail. :)

So Hero Lab is fighting me, I did an Adjust to make Sleeping Goddess an available discipline for a PW, but I can't choose SG maneuvers for a Pathwalker. Anyone know if there's some spot I have to whack HL on its side like the Fonz to make it work? :)

I decided the easiest fix was to just steer away from it. Matreo's second Pathwalker discipline after Scarlet Throne will simply be Solar Wind; given the "guns everywhere" setting, some focus on ranged seemed smart, so he'll be more sword-and-pistol. I'll probably use one of the variants that does a different damage type (I'm thinking the electric damage one).

I briefly toyed with making a tactician version of Matreo, because when you've got ability scores that are COMPLETELY BONKERS, why not try making the MAD-dest type of character there is? :) But it doesn't match up with how I've got him set in my head, so I stuck with Psychic Warrior.

I'll keep an eye on that if I'm selected, but that's a level 5 issue.

I've got the crunch of my Pathwalker pretty nailed down. Need to decide if I'll do anything with VMC, but that can easily be a decision for later.

I don't know enough of the world yet to finish out the fluff, but he's a Maquoran who had been serving aboard a privateer that was betrayed by an "official" navy vessel. A few survivors of the battle made it back to civilization, and Matreo would love to get some revenge.

More to come as I flesh it out.

Still to do: finish gear, and put in the right maneuvers (I couldn't make a Pathwalker that had Sleeping Goddess maneuvers).

Are there any "official" VMCs lying around for the psionic classes? I looked but haven't seen any. GM okayed VMC, and with all those extra feats it seems pretty tasty, but I'm having a tough time really finding one that adds to my character concept, as opposed to just, "might as well take it."

That defense bonus, the optional rule you mentioned, in Hero Lab, it seems like the best representation of that is to do an Adjust to give oneself the relevant amount as a dodge bonus to AC.

LOL, okay! I'll have Lukas' profile up later tonight. But for now I've got to roll, I'm the only functioning adult in my house (Mrs. Redblade got her second vaccine shot last night and she's a hot mess).

Sorry, I had to actually do some work today. :) So if we're not worried about tons of depth, how's something like this:

Lukas' mentor (name still pending) passed away two months ago now. In going through his personal effects, Lukas found a strange bronze amulet, and in a smaller journal Lukas had never actually seen before, he saw notes about this amulet, in [mentor's] handwriting, ending with a note to the effect of, "Take it to Goldenfire Order? Illiara's people are good with these things." Of course, one trip to Thornkeep later, and Lukas now finds himself on the road to Fort Inevitable, trying to track down one of the missing Goldenfire wizards that might have the insights in question.

Something like that work?
