Actually, even Emergency Force Sphere can be teleported through. It's also based on wall of force, with no extra text indicating you can't.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

However, Resilient Sphere indicates the you can teleport out, as you can bypass a Wall of Force that way, so it doesn't block line of effect as far as teleportation is concerned.

Flumefire Rage doesn't help, you aren't casting a spell with Sunblade.

Silver Crusade

Especially at higher levels, where you may suddenly find yourself trapped in the resilient sphere with your enemy. At 10th level, it's a 10 foot diameter sphere, which encloses both of you.

I understand it, my point is more that they gave me, at regular price, a product that they generally put on sale at a discount, and fixing their mistake was not a priority. That's what gets me. I just received a notice that it's being shipped out on August 2nd, when I reported the damage on June 22.

They are still outsiders, they just aren't extraplanar outsiders. A subtype may change, but only very, very specific things change creature type.

It was issue 5, the previous issue.

I understand that very few people will see this and even fewer will care, but I want to express my current disappointment with Paizo. My issues are twofold, I have subscribed to the adventure path for a little while now. I recieved a damaged product, and while they have agreed to replace it, they are holding off until 2nd edition begins to bundle it with another 2 books. I had also put in an order through my FLGS for the pocket editions of both Occult Adventures and Ultimate Wilderness back in mid-May. The game store and I are both STILL waiting on Paizo to fulfill the order. I know everyone's gearing up for 2nd Edition, but it's still a slap in the face to those of us who are still supporting 1st Edition until 2nd comes out.

It was never really defined, but more on a wider scale, Obi-wan and Alderan, or on a personal level, Anakin and his mother. Even then, Anakin was more seeing the future, as his mother hadn't been captured when the visions started.

I wouldn't recommend plasma blade as the weapon, it's too restrictive. I'd go for either an adamantine longsword or bastard sword with Kinetic Weapon, or Ascetic Style with an adamantine temple sword and Kinetic Fist.

They don't really have Telepathy, in the sense of having whole conversations. Based on the movies and expanded universe, I think most jedi would be multiclass, a few levels in something that grants Uncanny Dodge to show their danger sense, ranks in Sense Motive to represent their being in tune with the Force, because they really can'tread minds, just sense connections. Suggestion is the real big issue. Only way I can see to get it requires 6 feats, 1 for Racial Heritage Kitsune, and 5 Magical Tail feats. I suppose you could talk to the GM about adding some choices to the Kinetic Invocation feat, based on training only available to a Jedi.

Just wish Paizo would hurry up and send it. I placed an order with my FLGS mid May, and Paizo still hasn't shipped it to them.

Silver Crusade

I might suggest a halfling or gnome kineticist, specializing in Kinetic Weapon infusion. You get very good attacks, and very good defense, especially if you go water or earth, respectively.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I would probably gestalt a form of ranger and wizard. I don't know much about the spheres system, but ranger fits having survived on his own, wizard because he taught himself magic, and became fascinated not only with the two-legger's crafts, but also their spellcrafts.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

They want advice on something we can't possibly understand due to all the custom rules.

Okay, had an encounter last night where our party went up against a Living Apocalypse. My technomancer started the fight with a disintegrate. Nat 20. After reviewing some info after the fight, the ooze has an interesting immunity, it's immune to critical hits, unless it affects ooze. Would you consider Disintegrate as being able to affect oozes with a critical hit?

Silver Crusade

Starting a one-shot tonight, a team of 3 18th level characters. Currently have a power armor soldier, an envoy, and myself, a human technomancer. I would like opinions as to gear, because I purchased most of what I think I'll need, I have a laser rifle, a shock rifle, a dagger (all, if not top of yjr line, 2nd best), light armor, personal upgrades for both intelligence and dexterity (+6 and +4, respectively), aeon stones to grant a +1 caster level and negate my need for food/water. I have the official Starfinder society backpack, I even got the cybernetic Darkvision eyes,and the complete leg replacements for double my move speed. I have roughly 5-600000 credits left, so could use some suggestions. If it fits my character idea of a veteran starfinder, lately a professor of astromysticism and astrophysics, so much the better

Actually, I think just about every god would have some bard followers as clergy. Perform Oratory and Knowledge Religion would make bards very adept as teachers in the temples. Bards are often equated as entertainers, but they don't really have to be. The original bards weren't laughable entertainers, they were respected members of the priestly caste.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Any god, just thinking about the different styles of bards. I can make a bard of Zon-Kuthon, focused more as a spy, or of Gorum, focused on oratory and inciting the masses to battle

Silver Crusade

That's not less minmaxed, that's unplayable. You've got good stats in all but your important stats. You have a wizard who can't even cast his own cantrips, for crying out loud.

I think you're thinking of a 3rd edition module, The Forge of Fury.

Silver Crusade

I generally think that in high magic fantasy worlds, basically any D&D world, we'd actually see a lot less of the massed combat, and wars would focus more on squad level combats. After all, these are worlds that, while generally medieval in technology, are still able to field an airforce of allied creatures. A shieldwall may be impressive on the ground, from the air it's a target.

Silver Crusade

It all depends on what my mage has a taste for. It isn't cannabalism if you aren't humanoid anymore.

Silver Crusade

They can be interrupted either via an AoO or a readied action. Another possibility is from ongoing damage, say Acid Arrow.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Only way I can think of doing this is enchanting a conductive whip to act as those ropes. Very expensive, but only way I can see

Silver Crusade

Pretty much all we know is that the greatest of the fey are the ones known as the Eldest.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I would actually suggest a Medium. It may seem a little difficult at first, but rather than BE the reincarnated pharoah, you're his priest, and can channel his spirit.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

It's a full round casting, that means you can't move, but at the end of your turn it goes off, if they aren't already in AoO range, they don't get one.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

It's actually been done in some adventure paths, where pc wealth and 20 PB together are worth 1 higher CR. After all, ability scores don't add quite as much at higher levels

I recieved my shipment of the Adventure Path subscription and it was damaged out of the envelope. I have written to customer service days ago, and received no reply. I know everyone's busy with 2nd Edition, but please don't use it as an excuse to screw over the people who are supporting what's out now.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

A quick CR 2 side mission is right in order, perhaps a roving band of goblins needs to be dealt with.

Even in combinations where Sneak Attack from two classes do apply, they absolutely do not apply separately against DR (either from each other, or from the weapon's base damage).

glass.

I was using that as the first part of an argument against this. I don't agree with having 2 separate sources of sneak attack. Either they stack, or one overrides the other. If, as some people are saying, they have 2 separate sources and can apply each separately, they are, in effect, stacking them.

They apply separately against DR, but what happens when they do not have DR? Do you suddenly do both sources?

Aiming for poisoning the martial is an amateur mistake. You aim for the mages. It may not seem like it's doing much, until you ask the magic question "what's his encumbrance?". That being said, I don't recommend it, poison is a low level game, a lot of mid to high tier enemies are straight up immune

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Well you're way outside standard Pathfinder, so any help will be negligible. And there's a pregen about that age, so they can go out and murderhobo

Stop trying to dance around, you get 1 instance of sneak attack and that's it. Saying you add the damage together IS stacking them.

Silver Crusade

17 levels in 9 years? That's a joke. An adventure path takes you from 1 to 14-17 in a matter of months.

Silver Crusade

Another option, if we're going for your theme, could be kineticist, there's a few varieties to choose from. I've gone water kineticist, no archetypes, focusing on Kinetic Blade. It can be used to manifest light or one handed weapons, which include gauntlets, for psuedo unarmed fighting.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Warpriest works, as does fighter with the advanced weapon training abilities.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'd vote for throwing a book at them. Preferably something heavy

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

A spontaneous caster with a metamagic spell does it as a full round action, it takes effect in the same round it is cast in, the player was right.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

He has gotten a full round casting time mixed up with one round casting time. They seem like they are the same, but they aren't.

Silver Crusade

+3 for class skill

I would suggest a bloodrager, Infernal or Abyssal bloodline, to go with her belief that powers don't dictate personal beliefs.

There's a feat in Ultimate wilderness that lets your eidolon shift forms, called Eidolon Mount. I was confused when I first read the post, too.

The magus is blowing a lot of his spells on the one fight. Don't forget that Kensai reduces his spells per day for ALL levels by one. This means he has 4 0-level, 3 1st level, and 2 2nd level spells, plus bonus, leaving him with 4 1st level and 3 2nd level. So, in the first fight, he's blowing through minimum of 2/3rds of his spells, just by defensive buffs for one fight and one attack, going on the assumption he prepared 2 shocking grasps, a shield, and q mage armor. Yes, he can replace Shocking Grasp with Ray of Frost, but then his bonus damage is going from 7d6, a solid hit at this level, to 1d3. Not exactly impressive. Plus, the defensive bluffs he cast will, if he's lucky, take him through 2 fights. After that, what's his plan? A single dispel magic would ruin his day. Or a ninja with Vanishing Trick, or anyone making a feint. A successful feint, after all, knocks out both his Dex bonus and his Int bonus to AC. We're talking a 10 point reduction to AC for a single action.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Bite the Hand might be appropriate. He's paranoid about his boss, a cultist of outer gods. Could work to send summoned monsters back at the cultist. Mad Sultan's Melody would also be appropriate.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

How is he getting that AC? For Mage Armor to help, he can't be wearing armor. Cat's Grace and Shield combine to only a +6, and Shield doesn't last long.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Shaman or witch would be the best matches. And of course you need to redo the spell list, that's what new variant classes do. A shugenja is NOT a sorcerer, shugenja are the Rokugani equivalent of clerics. They make bargains, calling to the elements for help. A sorcerer is more in the realm of the maho, the blood sorcerers who generally killed on sight when the establishment knows what they're getting up to.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Well, that was an entirely unenlightening necro. Rereading this, I think I would allow ranged spells to count as guns/crossbows for this purpose as I imagine aiming an acid splash would be very like aiming a crossbow.

The obscuring mist one just cries out for teamwork, either 2 mages or a mage and kineticist. Especially if you double up on it, getting the one that treats everything as difficult terrain, so you don't penalize your allies, and the one that caused anyone in the mist to take a -4 penalty to saves vs electricity
