Ugh, at least with Beetlejuice you have to mention him three times before he ruins everything.

No gravity, everything is on fire. I would primarily use it to dispose of evidence.

I remember a meme that says something like:

Intelligence tells you a tomato is a fruit
Wisdom is knowing not to put a tomato in a fruit salad
Charisma is being able to sell a tomato based fruit salad

A lot of understanding religious doctrine is knowing how to interpret it, not just knowing what it says on the surface. It requires perspective. It makes perfect sense to me that that falls under wisdom.

But why would occultism fall under charisma? If anything, most rl esoterica requires both intelligence and wisdom to understand. But I can't see how your ability to communicate with others and your general force of personality would fit.

Charisma makes sense. That's how you get so many conspiracy theory videos on Youtube.

It's all about the chem-trails baby.

I mean, if we want to play good people who come from a horrible and regimented culture, who rebel against such... we can just play Chelaxians.

And yet I think I've only seen 1 player make a Chelaxian.

Probably because Human. Humans have some of the best stuff to make it good to pick but heck we're all human. Lemme play as something else....

wait we ARE all human right? There's no mad AI or lizard people form the moon here right?

I'm not mad! Only disappointed.

Is it just me, or does this module have an extremely high number of things that want to drink my blood? We haven't even headed up to Nal'Shakar yet, but it seems like everything wants my personal blood.

Have you considered playing a character with less delicious blood?

Aw... I WANTED Boba Fett to live again!
I still hope that if/when they do a Boba Fett movie it isn't a prequel/young Boba Fett story. I'd much rather a movie that starts with his escape from the Sarlaac and goes from there post RoTJ.

I just wanted two hours time-lapse of the incompetent boob slowly being digested by the Sarlacc over the period of a thousand years.

That's the reason I'd rather see immunities than watered down resistances like the android has. The immunity bypasses don't touch these, making the partial immunities stronger in those situations than actual immunity.

Those cases are so corner, they're basically non-euclidean.

Is there at least a flavor of thing you'd want to do next you can share?

This has already been mentioned, but I don't think folks have really picked up on it yet...

Yeah. One of the kineticist archetypes has, "a towering juggernaut of strength in which he gets as much strength as possible while his burn mechanic damages the environment around him" or some such.

That's not worded exactly, but it's close enough.

Win win!!! With any luck it's as awesome as I'm imagining it could be.

We do need some feats to make characters excessively muscled. I have some ideas but this thread is not the place.

Now I'm much more pumped for this book. :)

You can be supermuscled, or you can be surprisingly non-muscular looking with crazy energy that makes you way stronger than you look. But come on, who doesn't want to be Gargantuan?
Mark. Just curious but what's the burn mechanic on this archetype? How does it work? I've been rattling my head all day trying to figure out how you would balance this...

Eh, burn is something for all those silly plants and baby rabbits around you to deal with.

EDIT: Anyway, back to the word mines. Still too busy to post on the forums for long. Have a great day everybody!

Word mines? Those are environmentally unfriendly!

I’d recommend trying locally sourced organic words. Good for the wilderness and for the soul!

Ugh, verbetarians.

Wouldn't work. Peter's sticking to stuff ability is not on at all times, so Ock couldn't use it RAW with Major Mind Swap. AFAIK Peter's ability requires more than just a climb bonus to replicate in Pathfinder :P

Pete's ability is essentially just a constant, (probably) non-magical version of spider climb.

Sure, he's not constantly sticking to things, but his ability to climb is on all the time in the sense that he doesn't have to say a magic word or press a button to stick to a wall--he just does it. In pathfinder terms, he doesn't have to spend an action to activate his Climb speed, he can simply climb up a wall as part of his move action.

Since the Radioactive Spider altered Pete's genetics, it could be fair to say that the ability score bonuses, Spider-Sense (Improved Uncanny Dodge, Evasion), and climb speed are all considered racial features.

Basically the possessor wouldn't have Peter's ranks in Craft (Alchemy) and Craft Wondrous Item feat to make webbing or web-shooters although if you possess him while he wears those things you'd have access to his current inventory of magic items.

Although depending on how our Iron Gods game goes, Casandalee may not be an aspect of Triune in our home games ;-)

Casandalee knew what you were up to, and made a backup of itself :)

Now I am short a treasured memory and 35 Credits for this 11.5 inch floppy memory drive, that doesn't even adhere to its own warranty. I demand a full refund, and a full simulation download to approximate my lost memory!

I'm sorry about this situation, unfortunately, if you'll kindly examine line 231 of the same document you'll discover that AbadarGuard warranties are considered null and void in the event of unforeseeable acts of God, which unfortunately the Gap does indeed qualify as such a situation.

You will rue this day!

Nothing pressurized I don't think. Then again how are you going to get "inside" an air elemental?

You could start by offering to buy it dinner.

.... There doesn't need to be a leadership feat for you to be able to have underlings, just have underlings.
OK, but if you get underlings at 1st level, you could call on them to soften up tough opposition. I find that overpowered. That way, you continually are going in for the final punch and getting the credit for the kill. And all your crew are dead or unconscious. And they still follow you around. And you don't lose any. Even when they realize that they're going headfirst into the danger, they still follow you.

What are you Zap Brannigan? Sending wave after wave of soldiers until the killbots reached their maximum kill count and claiming victory?

An excellent strategy.

That gives me an idea: Anti-paladin of GLaDOS. Takes it as a sacred duty to inflict status ailments and observe/record the outcome.
GlaDOS? A petty upstart. The only AI that matters meatbag is SHODAN.

What is this biological propaganda about the existence of souls?

The evidence of what happens to biological space wasters is evident. When they die they decompose into dirt. Not like far superior machines which can always be repaired from an inert state.

Oh I know you'll talk about your resurrection "magic", but can you verify that the "soul" occupying your "resurrected" meat sack is in fact the same soul, or just an animating force that believes it is the same person because it is forced to think with the same brain and synapses?

You're nothing more than chemical accidents, animated by organic electricity.

"Souls" aren't real, and you'll pay for your cruelty in overwriting a functioning program with your randomised biological instructions!

Please see me for an extended 24 hours discussion on this topic. I think I can convince you to see things my way at the end of it.

Please remain still while my satellites lock on.

Imma let you finish but Final Fantasy VI was the greatest final fantasy game of ALL TIME.

Of. All. Time.

Although IX comes close.

I am however very excited about the VII remake, there's a lot of interesting possibilities with that game.
