Experienced group in Fall River,MA with a steady DM looking for additional players. Our main game is a Pathfinder home brew, very character and story driven. Most adventures are based on PC backstories or goals. Game is on Sat Night, 4-around 10 or 11. looking to fill some spots. Message me if interested. Looking for people who can make a majority of the games, not casual attendees.
From time to time we take a break and play some one shots of other systems to break things up or to fill a session where we have no shows.

The spiritualist's phantom is describes as "looks somewhat like it did in its past life while manifested, though the emotional turmoil of its existence usually warps its appearance in some way." Would you say a Phantom in ectoplasmic form can pass as a human?

So here is a scenario. Channel energy. Don't have selective channeling. Enemies all have spell resistance. Allies don't. Can I choose to fail a spell penetration roll, to heal just my allies?
I know if the enemy is aware they can drop their resistance, but that would be dangerous with the rest of my party throwing magic.

Looking at these rule, I can't see how there are any addicts. If you get addicted to a drug that is higher then minor addiction, the user can't heal the damage from the drug, will need to keep take doses to function and each dose does more ability damage. How can an average commoner get addicted to any medium or major drug without being dead in a few days.
Am I missing something?

One of my players is looking at creating a mercenary company using the downtime rules. He is currently in a lawful realm, and I figure that he will need permission to establish a group of armed men. So, he will need to buy a mercenary company charter, which will basically give him some legal protection and the locals won't think he is raising an army.
So my idea is there are levels of charters. Maybe up to 20 men, then up to 100, then up to 500. More than that would be dangerous. Any advice on how much to charge for there charters?

So we have a wizard that can see in the dark in an area of darkness, using spectral hand to deliver touch spells. The Wiz also has sneak attack. Can the Hand make a stealth check to remain unseen, deliver the spell and do Sneak attack damage? The Target is NOT in the darkness.

Opinions?

I usually don't complain about archetypes and power levels, but I am having trouble with this one, and hoping I'm missing something.

The mindblade cast psychic spells. That means that the components are now emotion and thought. Thought spells now suffer a -10 to concentration rolls. I assume this applies to casting defensively. You can take a move action to negate the penalty.

So, A magus in combat (Where he should be) has to cast defensively with a -10 penalty or take a move action, which means no spell combat?

I am ok with taking some penalties for flavor, but isn't this just a bit too much. I can't imagine anyone playing this.

I have a question about running an adventure path for PFS. I recently ran Mummy's Mask book 1. Is says that these are treated as modules, and provide 4 PP and 3 xp. When I entered it in the tracker here on the website though, it only gave me, as the GM, 2 PP. Is that an error or am I missing something? There is no option to edit it manually.

Anyone playing the firefly RPG out there? I'm actually using the rules for a Star Wars game, and they are working out quite nice. I really like that you can have a Jedi working side-by-side with non-force characters, and have them not outclass the others, but still keep thier awesomeness.

Does anyone know of any resources for a player handout Boon? I am looking for something that I can print out to represent a non-item/money reward. (Like a +2 to cha checks with a certain organization). I could always just type something up, but was wondering if anyone had seen anything out there that would probably be more artistic then I could come up with. Index card size would be nice, but anything is better then free handing it.

I thought there was a thread on this before but couldn't find it. MY group is playing around with the concepts of furycrafting found in Butcher's Codex Alera Series. This is my first draft of the Metalcrafter. Will be appreciative of some feedback.
DB link to .doc file

Couple of notes.. The 14th level ability of metal fury is up in the air, and may be part of the changes to help damage.
The exact spell list is to be determined, but will be very limited (3-4 for each level). The reason he gets 0 lvl spells is to simulate the crafting everyone knows. The spells will be things like Spark, for fire, Resistance for Metal, etc.

I'm a bit new to this. I started an adventure path sub with Half Dead City. Things were good until late last week, when my march and April orders were showing combined. I herd that happens, and it should sort out. Now I seem to be missing any order for The Half Dead City, and my sidecart is now added to my April order (With mummy mask book 2) rather than with march where I was expecting it.

So here is my situation. I have an orc horde (Colossal) going about destroying everything in its path. The PC are gathering armies to fight it. I thought this would be cool to try out the new rules. However, looking at them, after the PC gather the armies, because they are going to be made up of smaller armies of all different races, even thought they outnumber the orcs, they are going to get slaughtered. This is because you can not combine armies that are different.

The smaller armies are not going to be able to hurt the horde, and the horde will be wiping them out one at a time, even if they are working together.

Thoughts?


I am trying to recreate the Shadowbane inquisitor as a Paladin Archetype. What do you think having a Smite that affects any alignment is worth? Should I drop spells?

I am also not going to run Wake after broken Moon as I feel it dosen't fit the theme well, nor are my players the type to enjoy that type of horror. Instead I will have the dark rider trading the effigy for something found in a recently discovered osirion pyramid that has been discovered in the region. (Hey if Mexico can have em, why not Ustalav). I am putting together a list of classic mummy idea that I can use to build it out. I like how the path has used some classic tropes so far and want to keep on the theme. I will put the list here, but please add to it, if you have any more ideas. Whether it is a cool creature, an event, a plot, anything. The more I can choose from to build, the better it will be. Thanks for any help all.

1. Bookish female professor, wearing osirion amulet given to her by her professor father. Actually a member of the Palantine Eye
2. Young naive but beautiful research assistant.
3. A mummy queen brought back from the dig site to be on display.
4. The mummy king still at the dig site, not found yet (but awake)
5. Dog headed masks also on display, (later will be worn by minions of the mummy lord making them powerful)
6. people disappearing, bodies turned up all mummified
7. a secret order dedicating to protecting the pyramid, as it contains a disease that they are afraid it will be unleashed. They will be misguided and try to assassinate anyone they think is involved with the dig.
8. people finding that the prof from 1 above has a mummy (Eye Elder) and believe that it is causing this.
9. Onyx dogs.
10. Sand golems
11. Mummy king uses minions to kidnap research assistant from 2 above to be new queen. bringing her to the pyramid for the big dungeon finale

Do we have any access experts in the house?

ok, here is the situation. Your opponent readies to cast invis if you cast magic missile. You begin to cast. He makes his Spell Check. He casts invis. It goes before the action it interrupts, so it goes before your casting. Can you then cast another spell or choose a different target?

My thinking. Yes, you can change any part of your action you have not performed yet. (EX if you moved, and cast the spell, the action interrupts your spell, so you can not go back and change the move.)

Pulling this from another Thread about taking 10 and taking 20, sorry to Nosig that he may not see it to comment himself. Want to hear other people's opinions

nosig wrote:

I want a procedure to figure out how each Judge will do it at his table in a timely a fashion as possible. I'm already working on the questionaire - I'd like to keep it as short as possible, perhaps I'll just start with a list of Skills and a check box for which I can't use T10 or T20 with.

Why would people do this? All this does is make a judge waste time when he should be setting up, marks you as the type of player who is going to get in his face if he rules something against what he wrote, and add another level of frustration to a guy who is already taking time out of his playing to run a game for you.

How about ....
player:I Take ten to sneak past the guard.
DM: can't take ten on thoes.
Player: ok, my roll is .... (or) Ok, instead I am going to throw a stone to distract him...

Why is it so difficult to get a ruling and move on.

I have been on both sides of the table at cons, and have found most of the time when running, I am handed an adventure a few mins before the game. Barely have time to set up at a table with way more players than should be there. I don't know any of them, so I don't know when they are being serious, sarcastic, frustrated, or what, and I just have to go by what I can tell from thier responses/actions. I can tell you for a fact that somone handing me a questionaire to help them decide which rules I follow and which I get wrong is going to tick me off.

Now as a player, I have played in many games that stink. (The games where the DM does his best to kill everyone, since it's not his "real" game. The DM that anything you say is in game, so if you say "stick me with a fork" you just stabbed yourself with a fork, take damage. Yes for real). I learned that at cons the person responsible for my enjoyment is ME. I can either get mad at everything the dm does differently, or I can ignore that, and have fun playing and doing what I can. It's one game with strangers. Make the best out of it. Also if the DM does that bad of a job, you CAN't have fun. (I have had them). Don't make an issue of it. Do the best you can, and next slot, go on to something else. Next time, make sure you don't go to that dm's table.

Anyone who has been to a con has been at the group where one guy is arguing or "explaining" the rules. Everything stops, or the DM ignores him and he starts bugging everyone around him or makes a scene. Or he starts with the "Can I cast spells? Is that ok at your table. I just want to check before I try" etc. Don't be that guy.

Hope this is the right forum. Can anyone recommend some adventures that were written so they could be dropped into any campaign. I know a lot of adventures can be modified to fit home campaigns, but I am looking for some that have been intentionally designed this way. An example is "black & white" from 0one games. I have my own home brew and am looking for a supply of adventures, that I can use in a pinch (if something comes up and I don't have time to prepare) with as little changing as possible, so the more generic the setting the better. Also, they have to be Pathfinder compatible but from any 3pp is fine.

Thanks.

Hey all, let's share some fantasy movies that have you thinking of gaming while/after you watch them. I will put my list below. I have heard some terrible things about some of them, but I love them all, even today.

Beastmaster (the first)
Ladyhawke (The scene where he is sword fighting and throws his dagger, clasic)
Krull (classic D&D themes there)
Willow
Conan
Clash of the Titans (The original, the new one ws just a generic action movie to me)

Am I missing something, or does this just add a bluff check to the withdraw action? Is there a reason to take it, besides it being a prerequisite?

So here is one to ponder. my PC have found a monkey in their travels. a little spider monkey, who I threw in for some comic relief. Said monkey has been hanging around with the fighter and ranger, cause they give him food, and he likes the sound of laughing, so he does things that makes the party laugh. (or tries, in his limited way). Now the ranger turned 4th level and want to take the monkey as an animal companion. Even though it is not on the list, the rest of the players say "let him do it" so I do.

Now, the ranger wants to put the ability bump up for the monkey in his int. Make him a tiny bow, and get him the martial weapon prof in bows. Add in the rangers fav enemy is humans, and he has turned the monkey into a little killer (as in role, not ability).

Well, here is the thing. Now that the monkey is intelligent, and was really based around making people laugh, I think he may not like being a human hunter. Is it appropriate for an animal companion with intelligence to defy his master. Handle Animal wont work, though diplomacy might keep him friendly. Still, I cant see him liking what the ranger is asking him to do. What happens if the monkey doesn't want to be an animal companion, now that he is smart enough to make decisions? Thoughts?

Now that I got your attention, I do think that people who play online are playing d&D/pathfinder, etc. If fact for some it is the only form of game they get to play, but I have noticed things sometimes.
Sometimes when I hear people talk about build, and game decisions, I wonder how they can get away with their opinion at a game table, only to find out that they play online. Here is a general example. Some people think healing in combat is a waste of an action. When I am playing, if my friend who sits next to me take a huge hit, and says "Dude, I am down to five, one more I am dead, you have to come heal me" I could never look him in the eye and say "Sorry, that would wasting my action, instead I'm gonna try to take out that archer." He would look at me like I just signed his death warrant, and in game I might have.
I think though, I could make that decision a lot easier, if he was some dude on the other side of the country, playing by post once a day.

So my question is, do you feel that playing online will make you feel differently about your character choices, decisions, and how you think about rule interpretations, than playing face to face with friends would? Especially when it comes to making those "good for my group" vs "good for me" decisions.

While I know the rules support this, I wanted to get some opinions. A player asked me if it was ok to go natural weapon combat style from the APG. I thought this was a bit strange as he was using bow and daggers. I asked him about this and his plan was to take natural weapon style but use it to take weapon focus bow, and vital strike and improved vital strike that he was going to use for his bow also. He wanted to create a one shot one kill type character.
The part that bugged me is that he was taking that combat style just for the feats and ignoring the whole natural weapon theme. I told him no I didn't like it. If he wanted to take natural weapon style he had to intend to use natural weapons.
Would anyone else have done he same. How important is the spirit behind a option or feat etc.

Hey all. Want to get your creative juices flowing in prep for RPG superstar. There used to be a program on the web, that you could enter a number and it would spit out that many tavern encounters. Short little description of people that are in a tavern. How about we make some here. small encounters that a DM can throw randomly into a tavern to add some atmosphere. There are a few rules.

1. Keep it generic, so it can be used in any fantasy game, world, etc.
2. No stats/rules. Just description
3. keep it relativity short. One liners are fine, but try to keep it under five.
4. If you add magic, make it subtle, that way it works for low magic games.
5. If you want to add a spot check, don't add a DC. Leave that to the DM. See the examples below.
6. LaST but most important, don't go gonzo. Making it interesting, and leaving a hook a DM can work with is fine, but don't go too out there or it will be unusable in a lot of games.

Here are some I have.

A middle aged man sits at a table. He wears a brown cloak that is closed tight. His hair is short, and he is reading a book. [perception] He is actually hiding a scroll behind the book and is reading off of the scroll

Two young women sit close looking at a deck of ivory cards. One chooses a card from the deck and laughs.

A young man dressed in a red cape with gold trim sits at a table eating an expensive meal. He has a hunting dog sitting on the floor beside him. When he moves, you think you see something glowing faintly on his belt.

Anyone want to add?

I will start off saying I am on the left on most issues, just to get that out there but I have been thinking a lot about our economy lately and have looked at the view from both sides. Here is how I see it and why I don’t understand where the right is coming from. If I am missing something, please let me know what it is and how it is relevant.
The right want to cut the amount of money the govt is spending, and give tax cuts to large businesses. Now in theory I understand this, but when I think about it practically, here is what I come up with. Right now, the Govt is employing a lot of people. If we cut spending to the point that conservatives want it means cutting a lot of jobs. It also means reducing the assistance going out to people. Now, that will result in more people our of work and unable to spend money in the economy. It also means that people whose assistance is cute, will have less to spend in the economy. That is going to reduce tax revenue. (And I don’t mean just income tax, but also sales tax, etc.). So now we have people hurting, and not buying anything because they can’t afford it. Now on top of this, we cut taxes to large business. This means we have to cut even more from the budget, because that is less revenue from them, causing more unemployment, and more poverty. Business will now have more money, to spend on their business. Here is the thing though. If people aren’t buying, then why are these business going to hire more people. If they are making 1000 widget, and people lose their govt jobs, or assistance, and can only buy 800 widget, why would that company expand and make more of what it can’t sell now? Why would a person open up a restaurant when the people in town can’t afford to eat out. It seems like all this does to me is give large businesses more money to put in their profits. Profits that sit in bank accounts and doesn’t get spent. Now, before you say that these people will spend more and stimulate the economy, that just isn’t true. The top percentage earners already earn more than they can spend. All it does it fatten the coffers Even if they do spend more, there is no way that there are enough of them to stimulate the economy. A study released just recently show that the top 2% earners in this country, earn 50% of the country’s income. There is no way they will spend enough to put enough people back to work.
Lets look at the left. I know spending money is not popular, especially when you don’t have it, but the Govt is not a person. It is there to help in times just like this. If spending increases on things like infrastructure, investment in new technologies, social programs, that is going to put more money into the economy. As long as they do it right, it will put people back to work. Thank those people will go out any buy food and clothes, and in turn cause those business to do more business. Now those businesses will start to grow, now that the re is a market. They will use the money from increased sales to hire more people, because they will need to keep up with the demand. Then the people hired will spend money, etc. Now also the govt tax revenue will increase, from income tax, and sales tax, etc. Once we start seeing that upward trend, then the govt can start cutting back. After the bridges are fixed and the roads are built, we can end those job and the people who were doing them will now be able to find job in those expanding business, or building homes for the people that just went to work making widget, as the demand went up. Now as everything starts to grow again, the govt can go ahead and start paying back all that it took during the hard time.
To me it seems so clear, but if you see something I missed, let me know.

Hi 4ers. Just wanna ask a question. For anyone who has played a campaign up from level 3 into the 20's, how is higher level play? I'm looking for people who have played all the way through, not those who just try the high levels to see what ti is like. The play is different when you use a character for that long. Are the battles still exciting and flow nicely? Are the enemies still challenging? Do you find yourself with too many option, or it is a nice fit?

During my game last night, we were talking about one of my player's concepts. He wants to be a monster hunter and still function as a party healer. He was interested in the inquisitor but it really does not suit my style. We threw around some ideas, and came up with this. (I'm not going to stat it yet, it is just a floating idea, but I wanted to see peeps opinions). It takes from other classes (So would not be a good fit for a class to include in a boook for sale. this is just for home play).

Start with a ranger. Pull out animal companion, favored terrain, combat styles. Drop the BAB to 3/4. Add in spontaneous casting of divine spells at the bard progression. Throw in a weakened channel doing less damage, but affecting hated races when the damage option is chosen. and add the knowledge domain.

Any thoughts?

I am pretty biased as to which one I prefer, so I try to avoid putting in my opinion when I can, but I was talking my FLGS owner today and he said that his 4th ed sales are slowing way down, and his pathfinder sales are picking up. He also said that 3.5 sales are growing like crazy. So much that the books people were trading in (To buy 4ed) are now selling over retail as he can't keep them on the shelves. (While my friend was there someone bought the Expanded Psionics handbook for $45.)

Without debating the system, marketing etc, I am just wondering it anyone else has seen this change. I know it is good for Pathfinder, but it is good for the hobby in general?

Not sure where this should go, this looks like the closest place. I am new to Paizo, though I used to buy the old Dungeon and Dragon Mags. The one thing I didn't really like about them were the adventure paths. I play in a game world of my own making, and it is difficult at time to fit the adventures into my campaign world. As I say that, I also want to sat that Paizo makes some of the best adventures out there. The quality is amazing. So my suggestion is maybe in addition to the adventure paths, how about some adventures that are setting non-specific. Freeport is a great example of this, where they have temple to the god of sea, for example, that you can plug you own god in.
I would love to see some adventures where you need to go to City A, but you get to choose a city in your campaign will fit city A.

Just a thought, but that is the main reason I have not picked up paizo books. (beside the pathfinder rpg) I have two adventures that I bought to try to fit into my game, and am just finding it much more difficult than I imagined. I know Paizo is commited to Golorion, but it would be awesome to see maybe another line of adventures, more generic themed.

I may be in the minoroty, but I really liked the 3.5 grapple. My group did not have any probles with it at all. Last night was my second playtest with the new rules. I had a blast, but one thing that hit us is the fact that the attack roll was taken out of trip, grapple, et all. This brought up a problem. Your defense has nothing to do with getting away before the opponent could grab you. We came up with a case, where an ogre can grapple a pixie anytime, withour problem (Concidering the size bonus) regardless of the speed or ac of the pixie.

With the old grapple and trip, the initial attack roll, allowed a character to try to defend. In the curent system, my elf's expertise, and fighting defensivley, and magic dodge stuff, does not help me avoid getting grabbed at all.

I would like to see the initial touch attack back to start one of these manuvers (Trip and grapple). Then the CMB works fine.
For grapple, I think you should only be able to male one grapple check a turn. I see no reason why you can't use a light weapon, either. If you don't have it, an opposed grapple check to draw it. You should still need a grapple check to damage with the weapon, rather than a standard attack roll. You are using it in a different way, so the normal rules don't apply. Having it just allows you to use the weapon damage rather than you unarmed. Also another option could be to take the opponents light weapon with a grapple. Sure you can get out your +5 flaming dagger while being grapples by the wrestler, but he can just as easily pull it from you, and start using it on you. So here is a suggestion.

Trips and grapples need an initial attack roll, touch attack. If you make it you can automatically make your CMB check to engage the grapple, or attempt to trip.
with a grapple if you are successful, you are grappling. If you are already grappling, you can with a CMB roll:
Cause unarmed damage or damage from a light weapon
Move opponent
Pin opponent
grab light weapon from opponent
Draw light weapon
Break the grapple (if the opponent does not wish to continue this succeeds automatically)

One thing that was changed, I think should go back. When you grapple an opponent you should move them into the your square (or if the are a size bigger then you, you move into thier square. You would give eachother cover (-4) so anyone attacking either grappler has a chance to hit the other one. The exception would be if one is pinned, outsiders can make attacks on the pinned opponent with no change of hitting the non pinned one, if they so choose.

Note there is no distinction between being grappled, or being the grappler, unless one of you gets a pin. You both have the grappled condition. This is consitant with grappling in the real world as far as I have seen it, once you get in it, it goes to the better grappler, no matter who started it.

Well, just my opinions. We had a BLAST, and I will definatley be picking it up, one the games comes out, unless the beta has a lot more negative changes.
