I just realized that if Aldiss cast storm of blades, rather than bladed dash, he could have as many as 9 attacks in a round, 10 if he can get his caster level one higher. Not too shabby.

Now where are those sneak attack dice when you need them? ;P

It would probably look something like this:

Activate Spell Combat and cast storm of blades to summon four greatswords and launch them at nearest foe (five at CL 10).

Attack 1: +11 ranged to hit, 2d6/19-20 damage
Attack 2: +11 ranged to hit, 2d6/19-20 damage
Attack 3: +11 ranged to hit, 2d6/19-20 damage
Attack 4: +11 ranged to hit, 2d6/19-20 damage

Five-foot step into melee, activate Accurate Strike magus arcana and proceed with full attack with Improved Two-Weapon Fighting and haste.

Attack 5: +11 melee touch to hit, 1d6+8/19-20 damage
Attack 6: +11 melee touch to hit, 1d6+8/19-20 damage
Attack 7: +11 melee touch to hit, 1d6+8/19-20 damage
Attack 8: +6 melee touch to hit, 1d6+8/19-20 damage
Attack 9: +6 melee touch to hit, 1d6+8/19-20 damage

lol. There are multiple anime references that could be used here.

(FYI, that's what those glowing things hovering behind him are; his psychic swords immediately prior to launch.)


I was going to link this clip from RWBY but I realized, in watching it again, that Penny would probably work better as a Telekineticist. Throwing swords around, knocking people down, then charging up a blast before firing out this huge 'laser' beam...

Yeah, I think one could, reasonably, make a good homage to Penny using the Telekineticist.

Really... odd, question: You wouldn't happen to have a crossdressing, Barbarian wrestler in your art gallery would you?

If you've ever heard of Ladybeard, I was going to build a character inspired by him, but I would like to have a good portrait first.

Ladybeard:
Ladybeard is a crossdressing Australian professional wrestler who lives in Japan and who's hobby's include a love of metal, j-pop, anime, cosplay and doing metal covers of j-pop songs. Recently, he formed a "Kawaiicore" band called Ladybaby that is definitely an 'experience' to be certain.

I couldn't help but think an Ulfen Crossdressing Tetori Monk Wrestler would make for a very interesting encounter for PCs.


Pathfinder Maps, Pawns Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Yeah, I've got one or ten ideas buzzing around in my head, but I can't seem to find good artwork for them either.

NEW CHARACTER

Anna and Teddy, 8th-level young haunted maiden - A terrified young orphan girl and her teddy bear, turned deadly pirates

Sorry for the lack of a portrait on this one; hopefully the awesome backstory will make up for it. Anyone know where I can find art that would be fitting? I haven't had much luck yet.

EDIT: I know young characters are supposed to take on NPC levels until they are better trained, according to Ultimate Campaign, but please remember that "becoming a spiritualist is not a calling—it’s a phenomenon" which makes it totally legit. ;P

NEW CHARACTER

Elana (formerly Elan), 8th-level human mesmerist - Elana is a highly successful spy for the rich and political; often digging up dirty secrets on powerful people for their competitors (even going so far as to force them into compromising situations if necessary).

Born as Elan, she never felt that, that was who she was meant to be. Her life changed dramatically for the better when one of her discrete missions required her to dress in women's attire. Suddenly feeling more like herself than she had ever known, Elana was born, and she now dresses in women's attire more often than not. She finds that it not only serves to make her feel more at ease with herself, but also often distracts her marks from her true activities. Elana is not above seducing members of either sex to get her way.

That mindblade looks awesome! Magus has always kinda been a pet class with me, though I've always preferred spontaneous to prepared. Eldritch Scion appeals on one hand, but has it's own problems.. maybe I'll make a mindblade instead!

Curious if Elan(a) knows there's an elixir of sex shift now. ;)

Have you put any thought into the melee kineticist archetypes yet? Been bouncing around ideas for them, but I'm really not sure that they'd really work.

I think she's quite happy as a drag queen. (She cold totally have made that elixir herself a long time ago if that's what she really wanted.)

Thought? Yes. Still, it may be a while before I put one up. Still trying to work out a build or concept that I think works well.

Their damage for their primary attacks is just SO low! And without ANY utilities, they can get pretty damn boring pretty damn quick.

Since I can't seem to upload stuff your shared folder, I figure I'd just use mine. This is my first attempt at creating a Kineticist since the release, and I think I got everything correct with him.

For those curious, he was built using the Heroic NPC stat array (15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8) and designed for a campaign using the Fast XP track.

Genbu, the Earthen King.

Earth Glide makes this guy so incredibly powerful and annoying to deal with. If he doesn't want you to hit him, you pretty much won't be able to without readied actions.

I'm really happy he turned out as well as he did using NPC rules. This guy is straight up viable to be dropped into most campaigns without any tweaking. Hell, if they're playing 20 pt. buy or higher or they want to make him a 'major villain' it's not that hard to bump up his stats some or add more items (major villains get PC wealth instead of NPC wealth).


Had to fix an issue with Genbu. I overlooked the line on Kinetic Blade about how it doesn't add Overflow damage. Corrected his damage and added a blurb about that in the Kinetic Blade summary on his sheet.


Oops, I dropped something.

NEW CHARACTER ERRATA

Due to the recent Ultimate Combat Errata, the following characters have been updated to match the new rules changes.


  • Dag - Minor equipment changes due to four-mirror armor price hike.
  • Daren Mott - Changes to Master of Many Styles cost him Crane Wing and Crane Riposte. In their place he now has Weapon Focus twice and Mobility, making him far weaker defensively speaking.
  • Durin Wrang - Minor equipment changes due to kikko armor price hike.
  • Galanost Laetalal - Minor equipment changes due to kikko armor price hike.
  • Kang Makhai - Changes to Master of Many Styles cost him Crane Wing and Crane Riposte as bonus feats. Kept them on as general feats and moved the superscript "B's" around. Almost nothing changed.
  • Kujo, the Butcher - Minor equipment changes due to four-mirror armor price hike.
  • Siinsa Tosscobble (and uncahined variant) - Sap damage reduced due to Sap Adept feat changes.
  • Tolu Wrang - Changes to Master of Many Styles cost him Crane Wing and Crane Riposte. Now has Ability Focus (stunning fist) and Mantis Style.

Neither Daren Mott nor Tolu Wrang will ever play the same way again. Siinsa took a big DPR hit, but otherwise plays the same. :(

Looks like everyone else got off pretty easy this time.

I think that's it for this round of errata. Please let me know if I overlooked anything (on these characters or others).

NEW CHARACTER UPDATE AND VARIANT

Wellby Tosscobble, halfling sniper extraordinaire, has been updated! I have incorporated a new feat, Expert Sniper, from the Dirty Tactics Toolbox. This feat, in conjunction with his existing class abilities, means he can snipe people without taking ANY penalties to Stealth for doing so. Sadly, I had to give up Stealthy, which lowers his general stealth checks slightly, but I think the ability to sniper without any penalty whatsoever more than makes up for it.

I have also created a much more powerful Unchained Variant of Wellby, which drops his clubs and a few arrows for a dagger (for use with his new Finesse Training class ability). This variant is far more capable in melee, can debilitate foes at range or in melee (I like to think he would hinder speed while sniping), and is far better at spotting things far off or waking up from a deep sleep thanks to Rogue's Edge.

I like to think that higher level versions of Wellby would end up taking feats like Friendly Shroud*, Master Sniper* and Stealthy, as well as well as anything that might improve his damage and accuracy.

Hey RD, been a while since I have perused these so glad to see they are still up and running. Do you have any enchantment specialists? I seem to remember at least one but the list has grown and I got a bit lazy looking ;)

I absolutely love Orpheus. So much flavor and fey like fun all in one build. Would be an absolute blast to play one day I am sure.

The goblin fire drum; it adds +1 damage per die of fire spells and effects.

It'd probably work fine as PC as well, but it works exceptionally well as a villain or NPC character. Many PC builds don't function well as NPC builds because they often rely on a more forgiving stat distribution, or better gear. This is one that would work just fine as an NPC because the over-all stats don't matter (as much), and the gear required for this to work is actually pretty damned cheap.

I have several conceptual pairings; married couples, siblings and the like. As for teamwork feats and fighting together? Most of those ended up being characters with cohorts or companion creatures, such as those with the Leadership feat, or hunters, rangers, or summoners.

Lost ancestral arms (longbow), but gained an Elf's weapon familiarity

Floating Mountain, 7th-level sylph marshmallow - New racial trait
Now treated as both a human and an outsider, lost the auran language

I still say that a Mark of the Grinning Skull (scaling unchained item) would make this even scarier. An extra -2 on shaken with all these other debilitating effects is ridiculous.
Ooh! Thanks for pointing that out!

Kujo the Butcher's debuff penalties are now even larger in regards to himself!

I believe you could improve this build by going with the Arcanist archetype Blood Arcanist

You will still accomplish all of your fireball goals, however instead of "dumb" bloodline powers you can get cool arcanist exploits such as Potent Magic as well as being an Int caster instead of Cha.

Alternatively, have you tried Crossblooded to get Draconic as well (another +1 dmg per die rolled).

I realized something frustrating today while making a similar build... you can't use Kinetic Whip (or Blade) with Spring Attack. You can only use Kinetic Blade/Whip "as part of an attack action, a charge action, or a full-attack action" and Spring Attack is a Full round action. Whirlwind attack still works, as it is a Full-attack action.

I did find a fun option to use instead - Improved Trip, Fury's Fall, and Greater Trip with a Bowling Whip. For Genbu, it would give a +27 CMB to his Trip check and a free AoO when they fall prone. Also, as the Kinetic Whip would still be considered Bowling for the round, you could make trip attacks against any enemies that provoke.

It isn't a huge thing, as Genbu already has Whirlwind Attack, but for people building a Kineticist, having several levels with a feat that does nothing (Spring Attack) might not be desirable.

A friend of mine relatively new to Pathfinder made that character. I might have done things a little differently too, but she happens to be quite fond of sorcerers. She was aware of the Draconic bloodline, and had considered taking it as well, but ultimately wasn't willing to give up her spell slots and Will saves for it (she'd have to wait until level 7 just to get 3rd-level slots, which she didn't want to do). It also made the character concept convoluted and hard to explain, so she chose a simpler route.

.... -_-

G@* d!@n that stupid ruling! Spring Attack doesn't work with anything that's cool, or fun, or interesting. No, it's just beatstick, all day, every day.

Still, even without using Spring Attack, the interaction with Whirlwind Attack is worth waiting for. Especially since Genbu is designed to be an adversary, so he's, more than likely, going to be very outnumbered. Being able to deal damage to every single member of the party is very powerful for him, especially the amount of damage that he's dealing.

I mean, his empowered metal whip is capable of one-shotting most PCs up until 10th level or so, unless they've heavily invested in their HP. I mean, a 10th level Fighter with +3 hp per level (from Toughness, or High Con, or FCB etc) will have an average of 88 hp. If he has a 16 con, Toughness and FCB to hp, the he's got 108 hp, while the empowered metal whip deals an average of 93 points of damage on a hit.

Sure, his attack bonus is a little lowish compared to expected frontline AC of that level (20+level = AC 30), however, it doesn't matter. The people in the back, the Wizards and Clerics and Bards etc, aren't going to have the same amount of HP or AC.

It's entirely likely, that Genbu can party wipe in a single round.

[Edit] It should be noted, that Genbu has a major weakness. He's a little slow on the draw, and he's very vulnerable to mind magics. A charm, or dominate or similar magic targeting Will can royally screw him over. I seriously considered re-arranging his items to slot give him a wayfinder with a clear spindle ioun stone to make him immune to mental control effects.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

Yeah. As I said, it probably doesn't matter much for him, but it is a frustrating thing that gimped the build I was working on.
