Wow, I made this 3 years ago! I use it frequently, but never got round to properly updating it, and forgot about this forum thread!
So, it's back and updated with most of the content (It's missing a couple of Adventure Path sets, which I'll get to in a few days, as well as Heroes & Villains, which has no data).
Use the link in the original post, and as before, it's clunky, but works wonders when looking for pawns!
Let me know what you think, and anything I could do to improve it (bearing in mind my excel skills are mid-tier).
Would you accept a Paladin using the fact that they haven't fallen as circumstantial proof they are in the right?
Still looking for a way to store them myself, but I've done a bit of work creating an excel sheet to search for tokens. It needs a lot of refinement (read: it's a bit of a mess), but it does the job, giving the name, set, number and size of a pawn.
I've put it in dropbox HERE, let me know what you think! (You'll need to download it as it uses macros, sorry)
But against a person who is invisible, would you count as having line of sight? Or would seeing through them negate that?
3rd Round: The strength and location of each aura. If the items or creatures bearing the auras are in line of sight, you can make Knowledge (arcana) skill checks to determine the school of magic involved in each. (Make one check per aura: DC 15 + spell level, or 15 + 1/2 caster level for a nonspell effect.) If the aura emanates from a magic item, you can attempt to identify its properties (see Spellcraft).
Question: Does invisibility break line of sight?If so, you can't detect the school of magic, only the number of auras in the area.
EDIT: Though the part about knowing the strength and location comes first, so you'd know the aura was coming from a particular square, but not the school of magic involved.
A while back, I created the Pathfinder Bestiary Database, to help with searching for tokens across the growing number of sets available.
It is, however, very clunky and looks a bit rough. I'd like to upgrade to a web-based, easily searchable platform, but unfortunately I don't have the know-how to pull off such a feat. I've copied the data to a Google spreadsheet, and had a look at being able to easily search that, possibly using some sort of web app, but I was wondering if anyone else had experience in this kind of thing and could offer some insight?
Ideally, I'd like to be able to add links to specific searches and allowing others to add to the database. At the moment, the spreadsheet only contains the names, quantities, sizes, set and set number of each pawn. It would be nice to expand this to creature types (as many people sort this way), and possibly other things.
I was toying with this idea earlier. One way that looked good was to take levels in slayer, taking Ranger Combat Style talent for two weapon fighting. This means you can ignore the prerequisites, so take high Str and low Dex. Weapon focus and the two Dorn-Dergar feats give you some nifty abilities. Takes a few levels to kick in though.
Another thought might be to roll initiative at the same time as everyone else. He won't know he's in combat, but he'll teleport on his turn, then have a full round before he can act, pretty much the same as being caught flat-footed. This only works if you know someone will be entering combat as combat starts though.
Once had a group tasked to infiltrate a local crime boss' operations. They decided they needed to see what was in his warehouse, so they boxed up the Halfling bard and told the guards it was a delivery. But due to the high levels of security, they had to drop of the box and walk away, hoping the bard would open the place up from the inside during the night. The GM mentioned that if the Bard's player hadn't been off during the second session, the box would have been openned and she would have died like...well, a Halfling in a box.
Maybe an artifact that removes a city of the flow of time I.e. It no longer exists. The quest could then be to find the artifact to undo the effect, bringing the city back into existence.
What about being brought up by people that don't know much about humans. Say you were found by a group of remote dwelling elves. They've seen humans before, maybe a couple have passed through, but they didn't really want to know about them. So they assume you're a normal human. They don't know how humans age, what abilities they have or how they normally look.
I'd rule it as being grappled, which means a concentration check.
A couple of quick questions, not sure if I'm understanding these right:
Under the Soul Warden, Harvest ability:
At 4th level, whenever a soul warden destroys an undead creature using channel positive energy, channel damage, or a spell with an instantaneous duration, he regains a use of channel damage. [...] A soul warden cannot use this to exceed his maximum number of uses of channel damage per day.
What's the point of regaining a use of Channel Damage if you can't exceed you maximum number of uses per day?
And secondly, Under the Align Equipment Feat, it says that to bless a weapon with Holy, you have to have the Alignment Channel (Good) Feat. This doesn't make much sense to me. If you focused on hunting undead/Evil creatures, surly you'd take Alignment Channel (Evil) to harm them, so it'd make sense that Holy is based of Alignment Channel (Evil), and vice versa.
All-in-all I like this book a lot, just these couple of little bits confuse me.
My plan was to have the Inn connect to multiple different settings, having each setting occasionally appear, as well as having some quintessential characters from different games. Maybe a cleric of Illmater sitting around with the holy symbol around his neck, that kind of thing.
Unfortunately, I've not played much outside of FR and pathfinder, and don't know many good examples. So I was hoping people could provide a good list of different people or groups from different gaming settings. Doesn't have to be fantasy, though obviously some sort of magical connection would make sense, but a cowboy from Deadlands (the other game I've played a bit of) would be interesting. I'm not looking for monsters, just the kind of people who might have wandered into the Inn from some random plane in the multiverse.
