I'm not arguing that three rounds is or isn't too many, only that Assassins needing three rounds while ninjas only need one is probably not fair.

I hadn't noticed that. I still suspect that I'll disagree, but I'll admit that I should get around to actually playtesting and see the difference firsthand before deciding.
I just got some strange looks at work when I loudly laughed while reading this. :)

That would certainly be great. I would love it, as Combat Manager seems awesome.
If you don't get around to it, I totally understand. Supporting other people's OS choices isn't usually a whole lot of fun.
I'm trying to run Combat Manager on Linux using Mono. I get the following error message:
Could not load file or assembly 'PresentationFramework, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies.
The current version of Mono has compatibility with most of .Net 4. Here is a link showing the current Mono status:
Does Combat Manager use one of the Mono bits that aren't compatible yet? If not, do you have any ideas why I'm not getting it running?

Excellent. I will gladly grab a paper + epub subscription; or subscribe to an epub only type of thing, but I would expect to pay less than for a dead tree copy.
I'm very excited about Pathfinder novels, particularly in epub format. I can hardly wait!
I really like this idea. I never want my good characters to use poison, and having poison come with the class means that by ignoring it I am doing myself a disservice.
If I just choose the other lines though, it would be fine. I could have a good alchemist that doesn't have any poison abilities.
Poison makes a whole lot of sense for any neutral or evil alchemists I may play (or use against PCs) and it would still be available as part of a build.
There is a store called Krystal Keep in Kettering OH that is a gaming store. It has quite a lot of space, but quite a bit of it is devoted to wargaming. If you just like browsing brick and mortar game stores it would be worth a visit. I did buy my copy of Pathfinder RPG there via a preorder.
Thanks everyone. There were some very helpful posts.
The druid level is very tempting, but my GM said that we are probably going to play to 20th level with these characters (provided they live) which is pretty rare for us. I have decided that my monk is going to search for perfection and upon reaching 20th hopefully I'll find it and gain the perfect self class ability.
It looks like the wild cohort feat, which I had never heard of, will fit the bill for what I want it for. I can start with studying something like a crane and eventually get to the tiger. I'm not nearly as interested in the fighting abilities of the pet as I am the role playing aspects.
Thanks again for all the great ideas. I'll show my GM this thread as a starting point and I'll likely just take the wild cohort feat.
I am playing a monk and would like a pet tiger.
On the story side of things my character is studying the tiger because of its perfect grace and to learn its secret techniques and improve my fighting style.
On the rules side of things I have no idea how I could accomplish this. Can I buy a trained tiger? I would like a hunting tiger. I am not dipping into other classes and don't have the skill points for handle animal, which is not a class skill.
Does anybody know of any options?
