My only big peeve with Sorcs is that they STILL rely on the existence of a tongue and a free hand to control their inborn magical talent. It's just so wrong in feel...
I see why they do it in this new action economy, but I agree with the feel, I don't mind some type of action as it makes sense they need to focus the power through some type of action (I can't help but this of Prue in Charmed, or picturing someone gathering fire into their hands before flinging it in front of them).
I agree I would like a more build your own sorcerer feel (feat based purchases) with some example packages provided for those who don't want too.
In the play test I ended up with Fey, when really I would have loved a fire elemental bloodline but it was not a choice.

There is a series of PFS games at a local con we are hoping to do the run through about 6 or 7 of them.
Great idea about the spell cards, I will make sure we all have them as it will definitely save a lot of time.
I like the gunslinger/gun tank option, unfortunately doesn't fit the theme, which also makes the first level of fighter (which would normally make perfect sense in this build) not an option. If it was not starting a first level I think I definitely would have taken one of those options.
Unfortunately all four are combat perks (including Accelerated Drinker) and you can only have one of each type. I though about Soul Drinker but it takes an immediate action and likely to be only 1 or 2 hp early on.

Can you advise why so I can pass it onto my mate.
Yeah I am hoping to go single class to keep the theme, so I might consider either dropping power attack, and replacing it and improved unarmed strike with die hard and endurance.
To make better use of the sneak attack from the rogue class, take the bomb discovery 'Force Bomb' when you can and with a bit of teamwork, you can keep the enemy on the ground drink a mutagen, then beat it into the ground doing extra damage.
Thanks Warboss, I am getting the sneak attack from Vivisectionist which gives up my bombs not from the Rogue class. Actually I do get them with 2nd Master chymist which is 8 levels away. But assumed as they are quiet weak they would not be very useful.
I need some help making a tank alchemist for PFS, we have a party of magic users/university as the theme of the group. It’s looking life a master summoner, gnome pyromancer, inquisitor of knowledge (whip based), Spell Slinger and a Oracle Seer.
So the general idea is I will be the front liner hopefully receiving flanking from the master summoners minions. I took the two armour feats in order to increase my AC to starve of as many hits as possible. The idea behind the Vestigial discovery is to allow the character to keep using his long spear in the first round of combat will imbuing his mutagen. I did consider half orc to get the best of staying up with negative hit points but I did not think it would work.
Traits: Accelerated Drinker & ??
1st: Alchemist/Beastmorph/Vivisectionist 1: Alchemy, Sneak Attack 1d6, Brew Potion, Mutagen, Throw Anything, Feat: Medium Armour Proficiency Human Feat: Heavy Armour Proficiency
Edit: Totally forgot about combat expertise needed for Gangup, swapped it for earlier improved unarmed strike
Yeah I definitely a fan of the throwing knives idea. And if I got two weapon fighting I get to throw 2 daggers at the start, or use them in hand to hand combat.
Deft Palm sounds cool but I really do not know when it would be that useful and while underhandled is cool with it only being able to use my Char modifier per day I do not think it would be all that effective.
Updated my build still not sure about the Talents and Feats now.
Rogue 1/Knife Master
Skills: Acrobatics, Bluff, Diplomacy, Disable Device, Disquise, Linguistics, Perception, Intimidate, Stealth, Sleight of Hand, and Use Magic Device.
The means to do so depend heavily on who the intended recipient and which sourcebooks are available. Those with spellcasting class levels possess some options while others with the Use Magic Device skill have access to other alternatives. More information would help.
In a campaign and I believe we are about to go fight an undead army, there are going to be no doubt allot of foes floating around trying to draining levels, doing negative energy damage (inflict) and so forth.
I was hoping to figure out a way for my necromancer (now undead himself) to cast undead anatomy on the rest of the party so they would be immune to it thus ignoring the biggest danger.
The party is about 15th level now. I am the only arcane caster, then we have a bard and a ranger and some other interesting things.
Hi Guys and Gals,
I was wondering about the ways you can get away with casting (or at least getting them cast it on them selves) spells with the target you.
Obviously single use items and potions work, to a lesser degree wands because then they have to do a use magical item check which is likely to be difficult.
thanks for any advice
I think it requires some investigation first, there is a strong possibility that these tribes meet rather regularly, for some type of religious or trading reasons.
Use the wonderful dominate power or some nice illusions to mess with the peace to start the war as described, in addition poisoning some of the wells is likely to lead to a war as I am sure there is limited water in the desert.
Framing up one of cheiftains as betraying the others works well if the dominate is not really an option.
The game we are playing its perfectly okay for me to animate undead as a good character. The dead are raised to protect the community and its a great honour to be brought back after you died, and considering its an atheist community there is no issue as no ones beleives in souls and such things.
I was more disgruntled at I could not pull of the evil tricks as barrels of undead swarm making and such.
They are awesome Thalin, I love gobbers with a passion and love the fact they are far more playable in pathfinder.
Lol was actually got approved from an previous GM who was running a druid game (basically we where also druids), was a higher level spell and I used to cast it on people who abused nature. We where not a very freindly group and sought to recapture cities for nature.
