I appreciate the clarification! Your description makes perfect sense. Thanks!
I'm assuming that Quickdraw used to draw a bow and shoot is similar? The feat description says "weapon". Nothing about only "melee".
For example, my goblin ranger now has quickdraw. If I combine that with Hunted Shot, it seems to mean he just whips off 2 shots quickly.
Am I understanding it correctly?
I left the Pathfinder system ages ago. I enjoyed 1e for a long while, and was an initial AP subscriber for several years. But after a bit, it got a bit too much for me. Lots of cool rules additions, but I'm from the KISS method of schooling.
I have played 5e since it was released, and have been having a blast. Kobold Press has really stepped up to their Midgard setting, and I will always love 5e.
So, today, I downloaded the playtest pack, and started to peruse. I gotta admit....I like what I have seen so far. Is there room to grow? Of course. Do I like everything I've seen so far? Mostly yes, a few things I am on the fence.
I think Paizo is on the right track with 2e, and I am looking forward to seeing what they put together. So for now, Midgard will get the 5e treatment, and I look forward to rediscovering Golarion!
Off the a good start, Paizo! Thank you for your efforts.
I'm trying so bad to save money for the hardcover of this book! As someone who's ALWAYS used the Egyptian pantheon as my go to list of deities, the book really intrigues me. And I've never run a game in settings like the others mentioned, simply because there wasn't much material to go on. So, I save my pennies and hope to get it soon.
Totally worth every penny. I love how the nation of Nuria Natal is implemented into the setting.
Speaking as a KS backer, you will NOT be disappointed!
I have been researching Red Hand of Doom / Scales of War for the last week. I have begun making a draft of the game but stalled on it this weekend while I was taking care of other things. I am down to setting the expectations and the crunch for the game.
Thanks for the update. I'm keeping an eye out on this.
@ Torillan, as a whole reworking of a class, I am gonna say no. I will look over this but I am not gonna toss out a whole class and replace it when I frankly do not have enough time in the system to see if its justified. You may use the spell-less ranger from unearthed arcana however.
No worries. I thought that is what I had linked to (it was on the WOTC site, but now that I looked at it again it is under "Houserule").
So, again, not to worry, I am perfectly happy using the standard ranger class.
He'll be human, as I think I'm gonna utilize a feat to start with....
Wow....talk about thread necromancy...
Anyhoo, yeah, I dropped my AP sub due to increasing lack of time to play, and I didn't see the need to carry on, difficult decision that it was.
I still have all my original books, arranged safely on a shelf. Haven't taken to step toward zip-locking them up yet...but I wonder now if maybe it's time.....
Got a two-fer this time!
First, the Gnolls!
As always, suggetions and constructive criticism are welcomed. I'm working on the Ravenfolk for the next update.
before i go into a tangent, let me ask this, are you a nurse or doctor, or some other health person that helps care for injured/sick people?
My official title is "Clinical Care Technician"...basically a nurse without authority to give meds. Otherwise, I can do everything else (IV/blood draws, Foley caths, splinting, etc.)
I get occasional minutes throughout the day to check posts, just don't have all the rules here with me!
So, posting isn't an issue, in case anyone was curious.
For the sake of TRUE random, here are the rest of my Halfling Outlaw's rolls:
[dice=Height 3'4" plus]1d10[/dice]
Alrighty...here we go for me Halfling:
WS:: 2d10 + 10 ⇒ (3, 6) + 10 = 19
Starting Wounds:: 1d10 ⇒ 3
Halfling Random Talent:: 1d100 ⇒ 60 Savvy
Random Starting Career:: 1d100 ⇒ 48 Outlaw
Going ahead with Outlaw for career.
So...smart and quick Halfling outlaw...hmm, wonder which career direction he'll be taking?... ;-)
Thank YOU for checking it out! This has kinda become a labor of love now. I work on it when I can, piecing together a players guide of sorts.
At some point, once races are finished, I'm going to work on some Arcane Backgrounds that I feel are appropriate to Midgard. As I love the Hellfrost setting from Triple Ace Games, I may be adopting some of the rules to Midgard. For example, I really like how Elementalists are done in Hellfrost, and will most likely be using that as the primary magic using background. The Highwizard from that setting would make a good one for the Elves, using a more ritualistic approach to magic, and with cool staves to boot.
Just some musings about what I'd think might work for a full conversion of Midgard.
Thanks again, and stay tuned!!
For the minor races, I am still working on them. Here is my first take on Centaurs though.
