Magic fang states:
"The unarmed attack becomes a +1 striking unarmed attack, gaining a +1 item bonus to attack rolls and increasing the number of damage dice to two."

Most animals already have a 2 die attack
Ape: fist Damage 2d6
Bear: jaws Damage 2d8

The spell 'Animal form' grants the same above attack damage.

So magic fang does nothing to these attacks beyond adding +1 to hit?

So would a "Bonded Animal" (Skill Feat) be better than a 'Animal Companion' for combat?

I was just making sure I wasn't missing something somewhere that said Uncanny Dodge didn't apply when balancing.

But moving at full speed just increases the DC by 5.
And the benefit is only when on "narrow surfaces". Wouldn't help you on balance checks for anything else (ice fields, rubble, underbrush).

The rules for acrobatics cover uneven ground as well as narrow places.
If the ground is uneven you have to make an acrobatics check if the DC is 10 or higher. Rule

Acrobatics specifically calls out that you are flat-footed if balancing.


Cross Narrow Surfaces/Uneven Ground

First, you can use Acrobatics to move on narrow surfaces and uneven ground without falling. A successful check allows you to move at half speed across such surfaces—only one check is needed per round. Use the following table to determine the base DC, which is then modified by the Acrobatics skill modifiers noted below. While you are using Acrobatics in this way, you are considered flat-footed and lose your Dexterity bonus to your AC (if any). If you take damage while using Acrobatics, you must immediately make another Acrobatics check at the same DC to avoid falling or being knocked prone.

I said less than 3 feet, not inches. 1-3 feet is DC 5. Severely Obstructed gives +5, which brings the DC to 10.

Width is the area your passing though, not the size of the environment. Even "the width of the planet" is DC 0, a icy cavern floor 100' wide is DC 10.

Spells like forest friend removes underbrush penalties when moving through forests.

Yes, clear cutting with a machete can help create a path.
But doesn't help in combat.

If you created the rug using the trap rules. 500gp*CL*SL

You could add the spell Improved trap to it and up the DC by +2. Which would be +150gp if you hire a hireling to cast it.

Heighten Spell would increase the DC also.

DC includes the Improved Trap Spell (but not the cost)
DC 13 = 500gp - Lv 1 spell (11 stat)
DC 15 = 3000gp - Lv 2 Spell (12 stat)
DC 16 = 7500gp - Lv 3 Spell (13 stat)
DC 18 = 14000gp - Lv 4 Spell (14 stat)

So there is no open area in the dense underbrush greater than 3' wide, with lots of branches, roots, etc.

Surface width 1-3'= DC 5
and Severely Obstructed +5
Now its a DC 10 acrobatics check, which requires them to make acrobatic checks.
Wouldn't this make them flat-footed and be difficult terrain?

Thick underbrush



Fetters are manacles fitted around the ankles rather than the wrists, and use the same rules for breaking, escape, and cost relative to size. A creature in fetters is entangled and can only move at half speed. In addition, a fettered creature must succeed at a DC 15 Acrobatics check to move more than its (reduced) speed in a round. If it fails the check by 5 or more, the creature falls prone.

So they are manacles for your feet and give the entangled condition.



If you want to cast a spell while entangled in a net or by a tanglefoot bag or while you're affected by a spell with similar effects, you must make a concentration check to cast the spell (DC 15 + the level of the spell you're casting). You lose the spell if you fail.

Concentration DC to cast while entangled is 15+SL.

The DC to cast in manacles should be atleast the same as for fetters.

Now when using animate dead only affect gorillas.


Cross Narrow Surfaces/Uneven Ground

First, you can use Acrobatics to move on narrow surfaces and uneven ground without falling. A successful check allows you to move at half speed across such surfaces—only one check is needed per round. Use the following table to determine the base DC, which is then modified by the Acrobatics skill modifiers noted below. While you are using Acrobatics in this way, you are considered flat-footed and lose your Dexterity bonus to your AC (if any). If you take damage while using Acrobatics, you must immediately make another Acrobatics check at the same DC to avoid falling or being knocked prone.

Uncanny Dodge

Starting at 4th level, a rogue can react to danger before her senses would normally allow her to do so. She cannot be caught flat-footed, nor does she lose her Dex...

So if balancing you're flat-footed unless you have uncanny dodge.

Then what is the point of the rouge talent 'ledge walker'?


Ledge Walker

This ability allows a rogue to move along narrow surfaces at full speed using the Acrobatics skill without penalty. In addition, a rogue with this talent is not flat-footed when using Acrobatics to move along narrow surfaces.

Would it just be for rogue archetypes who've switched out uncanny dodge?


Difficult Terrain

Hampered Movement: Difficult terrain, obstacles, and poor visibility can hamper movement. When movement is hampered, each square moved into usually counts as two squares, effectively reducing the distance that a character can cover in a move.

Are you flat-footed when in difficult terrain?

Last game we had this discussion (PCs moving through thick underbrush, lots of roots they could trip over) and ruled that when moving you were flat-footed, but if you didn't take a move action you weren't. (Unless someone had uncanny dodge).

Want to see what other say.

If the spell requires an attack roll; its an attack.
To 'touch' the creature's armor or equipment in combat would require an attack roll.


You can only have one light spell active at any one time. If you cast this spell while another casting is still in effect, the previous casting is dispelled.

So you couldn't have affected more than one object on the orcs.


Attacks of Opportunity

Sometimes a combatant in a melee lets her guard down or takes a reckless action. In this case, combatants near her can take advantage of her lapse in defense to attack her for free. These free attacks are called attacks of opportunity.


A helpless character is paralyzed, held, bound, sleeping, unconscious, or otherwise completely at an opponent's mercy.

So if just letting your guard down provokes, shouldn't being held provoke?

What is the DC to notice Camouflage netting? Not the DC to see what it is hiding, but the DC to notice it is netting and not bushes or sand?

The shard has the ioun stone in it so the curse is disabled.
I don't force the characters down the AP, it is added as part of their adventures. If they want to sell it (randomly) then they would just move to another adventure.
If they want to follow the AP, they can wait until they have a vision of where the next one is, then sell this one. Most likely they would try to sell it to the Pathfinder organization.
Since their adventures don't only follow the AP they do run into more powerful enemies they shouldn't start fights with. If they run into a bad guy who casts detect magic (or someone looking for the item) and its hanging around someone's neck, the bad guy is going to try to take it.
Having an artifact hanging around your neck (or in your pocket) should make you a target. If your not powerful enough to hold your own, you should get rid of it. They asked about how much it would be worth. I was looking for even a rough idea.

So we finally started shattered star. And they have recovered the "Shard of Pride". And they don't want it.
They like the item and its abilities, but the idea of a bunch of 3rd-4th level character running with an artifact scares them, they don't want powerful artifact seekers looking for them.
They want to sell it.

What does a minor artifact go for?
Magnimar's purchase limit is 75,000 gp, I think they would sell it for that.

Picture of a Culverin is 40lbs and can fit in it. So I would say yes almost any other weapon could fit in it.

Ring Gates would allow you to use enter image so long as you within 100 miles.

Lets say someone is looking around a bar for someone suspicious, or your walking through a crowd trying to remain innocuous.

Would these be stealth, bluff or even disguise checks?

Blood of the Mood, Page 27 --
"Magic: Spells like remove disease and heal are more definitive and safer ways to break the curse, as long as they are cast by a holy person of sufficient skill (typically a cleric of 12th level or higher). However, the window of time in which such mystical treatments function is short healers have but 3 days after a victim's exposure to the curse to use their restorative magic before it is no longer sufficient. Since many lycanthropes make their homes far from civilization, those who are infected by such reclusive monsters usually have no hope of reaching such a cure in time. After the 3-day window has passed, a victim's only chance of a cure through magic is a remove curse spell, cast by a cleric of 12th level or higher, during the time of the victim's transformation. To make matters more troublesome, spellcasters of sufficient power are rare in the Inner Sea region, and even if such a prodigious cleric is found, the price of his services can be cripplingly expensive."

A barbarian rages and then someone hits them with Frostbite (fatigue, no save), does their rage end because they are fatigued?

The reason I ask is because a barbarian's rage is in rounds and not a set duration (10 rounds) it is chosen round by round to keep going and "A barbarian cannot enter a new rage while fatigued or exhausted...". So if something caused him to become fatigued would he be able to continue his rage the following round? If not would he become exhausted? Frostbite says the spell cannot make them exhausted but can another source?

Found a picture of a Scorpio/Mantlet.

The hung platform is area B9 seems like its noticeable if the PCs just look up from area B1. So couldn't they just cast levitate and go right to the top?

After Natalya Vancaskerkin comes to her senses (and maybe charmed) how much information would she provide for the PCs? A Map? Does she tell the PC's about the illusory walls, so they can just climb/levitate right up B23?

Per the rules you cannot make it permanent using the permanency spell.
So instead use 'Craft Wondrous Item' and make a trap.

Craft Trap Rules
500gp x Spell level x caster level for automatic reset.

The trap is set off by a 'visual' effect. You choose that effect to be 'light' and install a enchanted torch in the room.

The 'trap' automatically resets every round and is set off every round.

Permanent desecrate at 3rd level.

Found a couple online and modified one in case anyone else ever looks for one....

See Invisibility

You can see any objects or beings that are invisible within your range of vision, as well as any that are ethereal, as if they were normally visible. Such creatures are visible to you as translucent shapes, allowing you easily to discern the difference between visible, invisible, and ethereal creatures.

Ethereal Plane

The Ethereal Plane is home to phantasmal creatures such as ghosts, as well as things born from the dreams of mortals. It is also the home of night hags and the xill.

So when you cast 'See Invisibility' you see lots of weird stuff beside just people who are invisible. Xill going about their daily lives, ghost, night hag covens, cast off mortal dreams all roaming around...

Would permanent see invisibility just drive you mad?

Ultimate Equipment Page 81 or Core Rulebook.

Chicken 1 gp vs 2 cp
Cow 50gp vs 10 gp

What book is correct?


Does anyone have an actual 'Guild Charter' written out? I had one that I use to modify depending on the game and what not, but I appear to no longer have it.

So I am looking to see if anyone has one written out. Guild offices, tax, item reselling rules, etc.


Hunter's Animal Focus States: If the hunter's animal companion is dead, the hunter can apply her companion's animal focus to herself instead of her animal companion. This is in addition to the normal one she can choose, and (as with a companion's focus) remains in effect until the hunter changes it instead of counting against her minutes per day.
Planar Focus: When you use your animal focus class feature, you can choose any of the following new aspects unless they conflict with your alignment.

So with your dead animal companion you can use the Planar Focus powers at will?


Master Performer (Kitharodian Academy)

When using your bardic performance abilities, you grant your allies greater bonuses.
Prerequisites: Bardic performance class feature, Extra Performance, Kitharodian Academy 15 TPA.
Benefit: When any of your bardic performance abilities grant your allies a bonus, that bonus is increased by +1.

Under skald it says...

"A raging song counts as the bard's bardic performance special ability for any effect that affects bardic performances."

Inspired Rage (Su): At 1st level, affected allies gain a +2 morale bonus to Strength and Constitution and a +1 morale bonus on Will saving throws, but also take a –1 penalty to AC.

Would a Bard 1/Skald 1 using Inspired Rage grant a +3 bonus to Str & Con and a +2 to will?

It depends on if the plants live until they naturally die or if they only persist for a limited time (minutes/hours)

You would need to make a custom Spell similar to other plant affecting spells plant growth (overgrowth)/entangle/etc.

If the plants only last hours then you could use something like entangle as the base of the spell.
'Any area the character steps on causes normal vegetation (grasses, flowers) that would normally bloom in the area to do so. The plants wilt after an hour.'
A spell like this is a 'flavor' spell to me and would be 1st level, since it has no effect on game play.

If the plants lived until they would normally die I would add the caveat that the plants are young (not in full bloom) and are not useful as nutritional (fruit bearing).
If you wanted the plants affected to be fully grown plants then you would need to increase the level to 3rd at a minimum (as per plant growth).

Plant growth affects 31400 sq ft. So if you could affect 1 5'x5' square per round then it would take a 1 minute to fill the same area (30 base movement * 4 for running * 5*5 square = 30,000 sq ft affected). So I would make the duration 1 round/lv.

As a magical item it would be 5th lv * 3rd lv spell * 2000gp * 4 for duration = 120,000gp

As a 1st level spell that is just for flavor and doesn't really affect anything 1st lv * 1st lv spell *2000 * 2 for duration = 4000gp.



You can bring along objects as long as their weight doesn't exceed your maximum load. You may also bring one additional willing Medium or smaller creature (carrying gear or objects up to its maximum load) or its equivalent per three caster levels.

"Can" does not mean "have to".

Opt to not bring it along when you teleport, thus it doesn't come with you.
You should also be able to teleport out of being poisoned, diseased, possessed, grappled, entangled, etc.
You opt to not take along the object/creature affecting you.


Freedom of Movement

This spell enables you or a creature you touch to move and attack normally for the duration of the spell...

Spell allows you to move normally.



The character is ensnared. Being entangled impedes movement...

Entangled impedes movement.

One makes it so you can move normally, other impedes movement. If my movement cannot be impeded, then entangle doesn't do anything.

Somewhere I saw a picture of a Mantlet with a Scorpio built into it.

The carpet of flying is also vastly cheaper than any other flying magical item.

Note that all items have prerequisites in their descriptions. These prerequisites must be met for the item to be created. Most of the time, they take the form of spells that must be known by the item's creator (although access through another magic item or spellcaster is allowed). The DC to create a magic item increases by 5 for each prerequisite the caster does not meet. The only exception to this is the requisite item creation feat, which is mandatory. In addition, you cannot create potions, spell-trigger, or spell-completion magic items without meeting its prerequisites.
Though the listed Caster Level for a pearl of power is 17th, that caster level is not part of the Requirements listing for that item. Therefore, the only caster level requirement for a pearl of power is the character has to be able to cast spells of the desired level.


Caster level is not a requirement to make an item. It only lets you know what the items saves are if it is targeted.

We allowed someone to retrain rich parents. In addition to the normal retrain costs he had to bail his parents out of debt (since they were no longer rich) which cost and additional 9,000gp.

First make a custom item that gives you +5 to spellcraft checks. (2500gp)

Hire a headmaster for 3 gp/day (ultimate campaign pg 89) and have him assist you in crafting; aid another for a +2 to spellcraft checks.

Buy/rent a magical repository (Ultimate campaign pg 99) for a +3 to spellcraft checks.

5 ranks
3 class skill
4 INT modifier
5 Magical Item
2 Aid another
3 Magical Repository

A spellcaster can create a beheaded with animate dead. Each beheaded created requires two onyx gems worth 100 gp and the casting of one air walk or fly spell. Beheaded can be created with additional abilities from the list below. Creating a variant beheaded counts as I additional Hit Die toward the caster's maximum Hit Dice of controlled undead. For every two abilities added, increase the beheaded's CR by 1.

Poorly worded.

I would say two 50gp onyx gems (100gp total) and doesn't replace the normal cost (extra cost so it flies).

Use a bucket, turn it upside down and you have a little stool.
5sp, 2lbs.

Agree with above (2 Hit Die).
I would however say that in brightly lit areas (daylight/sunlight) that you couldn't (or difficult) tell which one is lit.

Well, if DR reduces the damage done to me from a boulder being thrown by a giant; it should reduce the falling damage of me falling off a roof onto a boulder.

Lets compare all of them to the Carpet of Flying: 20,000gp, Unlimited duration, 40 move at 200lbs, 30 move at 400lbs.

Attempting to ascertain the properties of a magic item takes 3 rounds per item to be identified and you must be able to thoroughly examine the object.

Had a player as me if spellcraft would let them know how many charges a wand had. I said yes the aura weakened incrementally as charges were used, so they could tell how many were left.

But I wanted to make sure that is correct and to see if anyone did it differently.

There was something about the adventurer's sash being intended to be able to pull an item as part of a move action (like it was a masterwork bandolier). It was intended to be considered "in easy reach" as per drawing a weapon.

Each pouch has a stiff leather flap that can be secured against jostling with a clasp (requiring a move action to open or close) or left unfastened for easier access.

Since unopened makes for easier access, then retrieving would be part of a move action and not a move action in and of itself.


I've tried to think of different ways that this could work.
Feather Fall only affects medium or smaller so that won't work.
Shrink Item & Feather Fall won't work because the Roc is too big to shrink.

Glide might work.
Spell Lv * Caster Lv * Cost * Duration Variable * other mods.
2nd lv spell * 5th lv caster * 2000 * 2 = 40,000 but we can lower that.
50 charges (div by 2) and only useable 1/day (div by 5)
Glide 1/day and after 50 uses the item is no longer magical. Set its trigger to the same one similar to feather fall (but I'd set it to 50' due to aerial maneuvers).

The rider using a teleport item?
Spell Lv * Caster Lv * Cost * Duration Variable * other mods
5*9*1800(command word)/2/5=8100gp (not continuous)
Teleport Rider & Roc 1/day and after 50 uses the item is no longer magical.

But custom items are always up to the DM. I'd make you research a 2nd version of the feather fall spell that could affect large creatures. Then make a magical item out of that (which would be 12,000gp for an Large Feather Fall Ring. 2*3*2000)

Ride Skill is that all you wanted?

Can the Scizore be enchanted as a shield? I.E. to give a +2 shield bonus.

(Which you would lose if you attacked with it.)

So if I can't use UMD because it's a creature, does that mean I can make a BLUFF check?
