Pony Express.


I actually use it for the base of my runecaster style of magic in my homebrew world.

Sometimes I used it for dragon magic.

If they choose to take the form of a medium humanoid, the ability works like the spell Alter Self.

Using Alter Self as a baseline...said dragon just got a +2 to strength.

Neat. Gives my evil green dragon (custom) even more reason to assume his alter ego. Muhaha.

While he may get a +2 modifier for strength, he's lost lot more in basic damage dice from going down in size, losing his natural attacks, natural armor, and breath weapon.

When Dragons take humanoid form, it's because they're sneaking around, not for it's "immense power".

This is true. Thanks.


Thank you all.

My world requires dragons of various types and ages to be able to assume a human(oid) form.

After this discussion, at least I know which rules I am bending. I have gained clarity (on polymorph...no not really...hehe..).

Thank you for all the rule clarifications, and some references I was unaware of in Pathfinder.

I'm off to stat my dragon's primary alternate form as an NPC.

In legends and folklore, there has been some distinction made between raw ore (which is natural as you say) and worked metal (considered unnatural).

Thats probably part of the reasoning.

I'm GM'ing three games at the moment, 2 entirely pen-and-paper.

The third is a solo campaign where I use:

- Hero Lab (for building stat blocks; expensive but excellent)
- MapTool (virtual table top; free)
- TokenLab

I just want to sing the praises of TokenLab, by the way. It lets you generate super-useful Maptool tokens from Hero Lab stat blocks. They have buttons built in for practically EVERYTHING -- attacks, saves, spells prepared/cast, feat reference, the works. I no longer need to have umpty-dozen character sheet PDFs open all at once. It's made my life so, SO much simpler.

I also make heavy use of Photoshop for making custom maps. Maps take time. Lots of time.

So pre-made maps like the ones in Paizo's APs are dead handy. To get those out, I use Nitro PDF Reader. It has a very handy 'Extract Images' button, which will pull all of the images out of the PDF and dump them into a folder for you. Transparency preserved (where available) and map labels omitted (barring the occasional S for Secret Door, which are sometimes annoyingly baked into the image).

Those three tools are exactly what I use.

Plus Obsidian Portal to host a wiki and forums. (We play by post)
