what FAQ? i see no FAQ update, just ppl complaining/discussing it??
EDIT - i see the change in the FAQ of course. what i mean is, it was not mentioned in the paizo blog. other than seeing a zillion ppl posting about this, how/where should i have known the FAQ had been updated before being surprised by this at a con?
i completely disagree that it helps with difficult terrain. It says move normally, and paying double cost for difficult terrain are the normal movement rules.
If it did ignore any hindrances to movement, then the whole second section mentioning water is redundant. the fact they mention water means its an additional effect.
I have had a ton of monsters thwarted bc they are based on grab then all kinds of horrors. last night it was 15 advanced remorhazes trying to swallow whole people, which dones insane damage as their bellies are basically pure fire.
but they cant grab, so they cant swallow whole, so they are just a wimpy bite attack (one) per round. it was a joke.
it just seems legal that if a colossal creature shows up and tries to swallow a gnome, it auto fails.
i get the spell was meant to allow characters to move, esp underwater. remove hindrances. i have a hard time believing the spirit of the rules was to make the character immune to a gigantic list of special attacks.
this thread seems to be in a state of limbo, but ill post anyways. anyone have a way for their to be some way for stuff like swallow whole to work?
Wow i pooched that. Missed word Additional, so yes 4th, and the penalties are not on all attacks but get worse. Let me try again.
-2 flurry of maneuvers
1st and 2nd maneuvers no penalty
lvl of 15 replaces BAB
Full Round Action
The penalties would be awful, and as I read it, you can only do 3 max, at lvl 15
You replace you BAB of 11/6/1 with your monk lvl, 15
-2 for flurry of blows
Full Round Action
you do not get a 4th action, assuming you are 15th level. You dont have flurry of blows so you dont get an extra attack - you gave up flurry of blows to get flurry of maneuvers, which is very specific about 3 total maneuvers at 15th lvl
So a player stumped me last night, asking me "what are the three things that damned house thrune?"
I cant find anything on google that spells out the three, or where the commonplace nickname comes from. Abrogail I sold her soul, was killed by her son... i mean a lot of these are speculation
anyone have the actual lore on this moniker?
As part of my goal to read all novels, the PDFs for sale, and then the Free Web Fiction, I have been thoroughly enjoying the free web fiction!
However when i click on A knightly Mission by Dylan Birtolo, it goes to a page that should list off all of the chapters and their individual links. Instead it just hows chapter 1.
I read chapter 1, wondering if maybe it was just a short piece, but no, the end clearly says (not to mention the story context) that there is more content that is missing.
thanks in advance!
So i just read the fantastic short story "Certainty" by liane mercial (well was like a dollar on Audible, so glad paizo stuff is on audible now).
anyways, they run into a variant Iomedae priest who is basically burns anyone suspected of evil at the stake. their holy symbol is slightly different (flames not wings) etc.
Ive tried googling it, and all i got was one mention on these forums of someone saying "check out iomedae burners" which is what i am trying to do hehe
- are there rules in some AP i havent read?
basically any info or references to this Mendevian burner sect are appreciated, hopefully rules info but ill take any story, novel, AP, or lore too!
I have a question about the Libertys Edge season 7 faction CARD. I am asking it here bc it came up in this scenario, and I do not want to post spoilers in a general faction card discussion (besides, ppl go off the rails instantly)
Did anyone give credit for
Liberate one or more slaves, captives, or hostages during an adventure
The speech Cassiel gives makes me at least consider it, but this hasnt come up before. Since allips are formed by suicide I am leaning strongly towards not allowing it but hoped for some feedback.
And also about undead/trapped/imprisoned souls in general. I had always thought of Libertys Edge as only dealing in humans, but the general mandate about corruption made me think a cleric of pharasma who was lib edge could make claims to returning souls to the River of Souls by freeing them from undeath... etc.
But ya, School of Spirits. Right now my Libertys Edge PC got a nice boon on his chron sheet but zippo on the faction card and i am trying (within the rules) to find out more specifically what a slave, captive or hostage is.
If i have tremorsense and spring attack, i know what square is occupied. I still have a 50% miss chance though.
Can i spring attack into that square? Do they get no AoO? No AoO if i make my 50% An AoO no matter what bc technically i cannot "target" them?
I dont think id allow someone cast say magic missile just based on tremorsense (tell me if i am wrong on that one too), so im confused by the definion of "the target of the attack" if I am using tremorsense to attack into a square.
Im leaning towards ruling i cannot spring attack and hope to get lucky, but looking for people who know RAW better than i do.
thanks in advance!
I had assumed ones with a gp costs were consumed. I went to verify this, and see nothing about it in the RAW. I thought there was some section saying that materials with a cost, except for Focii, were consumed, but i seem to have old dnd bleeding in.
- does the ship splinter required by Locate Ship get consumed?
I cant find rules that say any material is consumed. It seems absurd that the 25gp for Divination isnt consumed, but looking for RAW.
So sure you need a 5000 gp diamond for raise dead - but where does it say it is consumed and lost?
I think ive been making a lot of assumptions.
Well you can command undead on mindless undead so i dont consider it mind control. But food for thought.
There wont (i doubt) be a day 2. they just came across some, the cleric resisted the babble, and owned them. I assume my players will find a way to eliminate them long before a day 2 takes place.
It was just pretty weird seeing them so powerful against creatures with 130+hp and absolutely deadly attacks, i wanted to double check there was no "Creatures with 10 or more HD have their natural attacks count as magical" or some other dnd-ish thing i had missed.
Seems like, in this very limited case, they got lucky. time to find a megalodon or dinosaur herd.
So please tell me I am missing something here.
My groups cleric now controls 2 allips. they are incorporeal.
1) is there no rule that creatures of massive size can hit them? As far as I can tell, unless a monster has a feat, these 12 HD giant plants and animals just cant do damage to them.
2) There is no save against the Allips wisdom drain. It isnt listed as a SLA or SP so SR doesnt apply. I cant find anything that says creatures immune to mind-affecting things are immune, so as far as i can tell, these can drain plants.
What stops a CR3 Allip from just walking up to a CR10 plant and draining its wis to 0 with touch attacks, immune to any counter attacks?
any solution yet to this only granting players one module of prestige (and the Gm only 2 tables of credit) for three adventures that award three levels worth of xp and prestige? the scenario tracker is still saying
Player has already run scenario
when they play part 2 and 3 (and the bonus chron) if they have played part 1 =/
I am surprised no one has asked this, maybe i am just dense -
Did you tell your players about preservation points, and tell them when they earned or lost them? Or was it secret GM stuff? I am about to run this and had planned to keep it secret, but I am expecting my group to bumrush thru it esp after they realize things are disappearing, and end up ticked off at the end that they were undersold on the preservation aspect.
Of course ill try to emphasize it from both the VC and Tahonikepsu that they preserve, but did you fellow GMs literally tell them about the scoring system?
Creating a new thing and "borrowing" one are very different.
Ive only had a player summon an devil once, and that was bc it could ethereal jaunt and kill some phase spiders for the party that were hiding and spying on them. Since Xill love to do that anyways, and the summoner told her to lay eggs in them if she wanted, i went with it.
Woops my example wasnt PFS.
