You could also try a two phase boss battle. That is to say once they drop the wizard, presumably from melee damage, replace him with a melee threat. In story terms you can have him cast a sort of polymorph spell (one that doesn't actually exist and is used just for story purposes) to transform into this second phase.

This can lead to a long fight, for better or worse, but they will remember the wizard who suddenly turned into a dragon or something.

It's not quite as dangerous as adding another creature to the encounter as the PCs can't be stuck fighting both at once, so maybe treat the second form as 1 level less for encounter building.

Life happens. It will still be grand when it's available!

Not sure, but I am guessing that the next issue is going to end up being Mwangi, Impossible Lands, or back to Starfinder.

I don't have a current game to use the character in, but I want to have a skeleton who carries a dairy. He's learned that in death the memories of life can quickly fade, and doesn't want to forget anything else, so keep detailed notes of his entire life, and rereads his journal each night. It keeps him close to the life he had, and to those he still loves as is trying to protect.

Probably play him as something kind of Int based despite the ability flaw, something he can use all that knowledge with. Maybe a Thaumaturge?

At the moment if it occurs in a home game I intend to rule that, A) Soothe can target any creature that is not DEAD dead, so undead will be fine, and B) that undead are don't benefit from positive healing effects.

It might not be a perfect solution, but until there is an official solution it works to help keep parties with undead moving and having fun in the game, which is really what matters.

Darkness and Penumbral Shroud are both quick stop gap spells that will protect you for 1 or 10 minutes. Not enough to adventure during the day, but enough to help you get out of the sun.

With the focus on community as well whatever civilization is there could echo that as a toxic community. Gossping, back stabbing, a general lack of trust. The worst kind of personal politics at all levels. Sure it's a very social place, doesn't mean it's a nice place.

I wish we had rules for playing a Mortic, but failing that I'm considering a elf/dhampir for ancestry, but playing up the dhampir side as the result of a ritual rather than a fact of birth. Born with some sort of congenital condition that would have cut her natural lifespan short she turned to necromancy to prolong it.

I like the idea of her having a servant or servants, so probably a devotion phantom summoner, with souls not emotionally drawn to her service but bound to her service in sycophantic manner.

My thoughts go to a Human/Dhampir fighter/magus.

Underworld magic and being comfortable in the land of the dead, plus having difficulty healing in traditional means all leans toward negative energy affinity in some way.

Fighter is the ultimate for martial flexibility.

Magus grants magical abilities to mix up with martial combat, but as a dedication never overshadows his martial abilities.

I would assume it would only refer to the statistics called out by the spell.

Quote:

You gain the following statistics and abilities regardless of which battle form you choose:

AC = 16 + your level. Ignore your armor's check penalty and Speed reduction.
5 temporary Hit Points.
Low-light vision and imprecise scent 30 feet.
One or more unarmed melee attacks specific to the battle form you choose, which are the only attacks you can use. You're trained with them. Your attack modifier is +9, and your damage bonus is +1. These attacks are Strength based (for the purpose of the enfeebled condition, for example). If your unarmed attack bonus is higher, you can use it instead.
Athletics modifier of +9, unless your own modifier is higher.

I'm looking forward to see what these multiclass druid/wizard capstone feats are, as I've seen them billed as one of the big selling points for limiting the free archetype to just those two classes.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

I know the shaman class from legendary games has a medium class path they can pursue.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

I haven't been able to start playing yet, but I intend to keep close to theme with a Summoner(arcane)/Sorcerer(primal) MC. Just been waiting for schedules to align, and for book 6 to see what these promised high level MC feats are like.

They did mention on the YouTube series that dragons get either a boost to strength or a different ability score based on their heritage, a free boost, and no ability flaw.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

I'd love to be able to play a character like Sypha Belnades from Netflix Castlevania series. Might work as a kineticist who is also good at ritual casting though.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

You've got it. Thanks for the response. I will continue to work on the expanded version of my article quietly then.

I suppose it depends what you mean by 'caster'; are we talking blasting, utility, or both?


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

If I know that one of my entries is being published am I allowed to mention it on the forums, or should that remain a secret until the actual issue is released?

I've used a Solar dragon NPC before as an antagonist. Players wanted to be evil and one begged to be a graveknight. So having something that could fly his armor to the heart of the sun was a good threat to keep looming around.

I just bought this and looking through it, level 17 defense is missing the electric. Looks good otherwise from my quick look through.

There's a missing line break. The electric defense is there, but hidden in the earth defense entry.

I'm really looking forward to see how it plays out. It's not an 'evil' AP, but undead PCs are allowed, and you're working in the country of Geb... How does this work? I must know.

And I have so many character ideas, but by then I'll have Book of the Dead too!


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

If I mostly run pre-written APs and scenarios rather than home brewed storylines how much use will I get out of this book?


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

Do any rules currently exist at all for the DCs of perception checks to notice loud sounds such as combat? I know 1E had rules for it ( https://www.aonprd.com/Skills.aspx?ItemName=Perception ), but I don't think I've seen anything similar in 2E.

Besides the previously mentioned sources the Worldscape comic provides another link created by Nex; R'lyeh is on Earth but know to have portals to other locations; and there were obvious links between Ancient Osirion and Egypt as they share a pantheon.

At the moment Magma. I have a Magma dragon summoner I want to make, and if things should take a bad turn for him I might have him return in a form that's permanently merged with his eidolon.

I mean, Hocus Pocus and the Sanderson Sisters are pretty much archetypal witches, and they use a living grimoire.

If nothing else these discussions are great because they help let Paizo know there is still interest in such a class role, whatever may come of it.

What about Triaxus?

Another possibility if you don't care to interact with Golarion as much, and just have your own setting there. Going to be a wintery one by default, but nothing saying you can't move their very long year forward or back a season or two.

Honestly, I'm starting to suspect that the real problem that Warpriest has is the name. It gives people an expectation of the build that simply isn't what it actually offers.

This. The 1E Class and the 2E doctrine are two very different things despite sharing a name.

I've made This Sheet for companions of various sorts, if it helps.

Has anyone given WavPriest a try?

How would you recommend stating that up? Simply a divine magus is a start, but the OG Warpriest wasn't about spell strikes so much as assorted blessings and wreaking havoc with a sacred weapon.

Quite alright, I stole it from Eberron and Argonnessen. XD

Honestly I think doctrines were something of a mistake in the first place. Cloistered should have been the default, then add a couple class feats if you want to be the tankier kind of cleric. Would have left room for Warpriest to be it's own thing, and better fill the expectations we have from that name after it's 1E incarnation.

Given what we have now with bounded spellcasting that may have worked well as a sort of divine alternative to the magus.

Also I must admit that when communicating in such a method as this forum it can be a bit more difficult to read all the intended nuances than it would be in a real conversation. Miscommunication becomes much easier.

I'll be forced to disagree with you know who. You can't co-exist with someone who wants eliminate you just for existing. There isn't always a moral middle ground. If Party A wants to kill 0 puppies, and Party B wants to kill all puppies, you don't kill half the puppies.

You can say stop picking at an open wound, but what that really implies is stop trying to protect already marginalized people from further abuse.

We aren't going to just sweep the bigotry under the rug and forget about it; we want to sweep the bigots away for good.

This is the internet, Paizo is going to have to decide someday soon if they are going to invest another 30-90k per year in salaries in order to maintain the safe space they tried to create here or just nuke everything but PbP and potentially the product discussion threads along with an update to discourage any off-topic discussions. There are no other options on the table unless your demands are that the CS and other Paizo staff should be putting in even MORE hours into trying to keep this place civil, therefore taking them away from other far more profitable and important work than protecting peoples feelings from other anonymous users on their website.

You're not wrong. But until some sort of action is taken by Paizo threads like this will continue, as we're not going to concede the forums to the bigots.

Edit: Not wrong except for the part about not being important to protect people from would be abusers.

Thing is, if this space allowed to become a safe haven for hate speech then it's already lost, and there are people willing to fight tooth and nail to prevent that, even if they get bruised and bloodied in the process.

I'd be hesitant to increase the damage dice at all, but slapping capacity on existing firearms shouldn't be too much of an issue if everyone friend and foe alike benefit from it. However the improved action economy could be a little much versus non-firearm users. Not by a lot mind you, but worth keeping in mind.

As for full auto, I might look into how Starfinder handles it. Ie, discharge your whole magazine to attack a cone, or something of the sort.

I think I need to read a lot of Edgar Allen Poe before creating a character for this one, to get a proper tragic hero. Raven familiar optional.
