Their dedication is to order, not to the greater good. There is a difference, as order does not necessarily or inherently bring happiness, save to those individuals predisposed to find happiness in it.

Also they treat Halflings and Tieflings like garbage, when it's well-documented that fewer Tieflings would turn to Evil and Chaos if people treated them like people growing up.

It does still strike me as a bit strong, though.

Unless it specifically lists all the conditions it can remove, it can also do stuff like negate poison and sickness, which are longer term and harder to get rid of, but still a temporary negative condition.

Depends on the setting. Undead don't /have/ to be evil, but they tend to be. Wraiths in particular universally hate life. It's a literal, physical part of their being (inasmuch as something incorporeal can have a physical part).

If they came back as wraiths and then just went back to adventuring, they're not wraiths. They're ghosts.

Someone who came back as a ghost though sheer force of will when a wraith would normally have created them into a spawn is a neat idea though.

Would you say 2 CON is a fair trade for immunity to fatigue and exhaustion as a barbarian? I'm going to guess no.

Context: my barbarian has a Belt of Physical Perfect +2 (all three physical stats). Upgrading it to +4 would require 48,000 GP, a total I have about half of now. Upgrading it by combining it with a Cord of Stubborn Resolve would cost 22,500, so almost all of the money I have now, and waste the CON boost from the item since it doesn't stack with the CON boost the item already gives. If I sell the Belt of Physical Perfection though, I would have enough money to buy a Belt of Physical Might +2 (STR/DEX) and combine it with a Cord of Stubborn Resolve. It would cost around 30,000 GP, and when upgraded to +4 STR/DEX & +2 CON, it would be worth about 62,000 GP, almost as much as a Belt of Physical Perfection +4.

You want suboptimal Cleric and want more skills? Take the Cloistered Cleric archetype, it was made for you. 4 + Int skills, reduced spell slots, +1/2 level to Knowledges (and nothing to use that for), and the ability to Aid Another to everyone in the party (eventually) within 30ft... for skill and ability checks only.

If you take the halfling Helpful trait in combination with the Fools for Friends trait, you can Aid Another for +5... so effectively you can make the whole party reasonably good at any particular task they're set to.

Psion and arguably Wilder are T2, T1 with augmented Reformation.

Mystic and Vizier can crack T2 with crafting cheese, but it's easy to see those coming. Both are solid-to-high 3s without the cheese.

Most of the rest are T3 on at least some builds, with a couple of solid-to-high 4s (base non-sidebar Soulknife and Wrath Daevics come to mind, maybe 1-2 others). Note that Wrath (Vengeance) Daevic is /freaking high/ on T4, having the highest standing damage out of any DSP class (clocked ~1200 DPR on my Olympic sim with full cheese).

No DSP class lands on the bottom half of T4 or below

And I'm not trying to say only the old guard made mistakes. We didn't get proper editing on Path of War. I fucked up certain feats in Psionics Augmented: Wilder. Bloodforge needed errata like an hour after publishing, which is written and being worked on but goddamn (Bloodforge is the reason we always do public playtesting now, incidentally).

Not entirely. The Sorc was playing a half-dragon and he grabbed onto the body of the Wyrm (his grandfather) and teleported it back to the lair. He screamed for someone to get a cleric so they can resurrect him.

But on the other side, they're all evil and grandpa is a competitor in the long run, so he's thinking he'd be better off using the wrym's body and wealth for revenge.

Usually how crafting on higher level campaigns has gone is that a crafter gets full discount on non-magical goods and equipment.

Other thing is that no more than half there wealth can be spent on a single item. This is based off the selling price of the item. So a lvl 6 character can't have a +4 attribute item even though they can afford it normally, even if they are paying half-price due to crafting.

It works well at forcing more balanced characters into campaigns and prevents a crafter from exceeding WBL in serious ways. Having twice the items only matters when you can't fill every slot. After each slot is filled it matters less.

Each crafting feat is one less feat that person has for other things. Those extra/better items fill the role of them usually. Crafting scales better than most feats so its fine as long as the initial items are okay'd by you as the GM.

TLDR; Basically let them have double funds for self crafted items, limit individual item value to a reasonable fraction of total wealth, look over their inventory for any weird stuff before allowing it.

If any of your DSP guys are still around I have a realtalk hard question for you; what do you think you will do if Paizo ever decides to eventually make a Pathfinder 2e and manages to invalidate, remove any compatibility with, or otherwise alienate existing third party material for the Pathfinder line?

I'm not trying to be cynical here but I cannot forsee a future where they don't eventually launch a new edition, for whatever that may entail. Not with the fight they're getting from WotC anyway.

Its pretty disheartening to see people switch from 4e or even PF to 5e without even considering it beyond 'its new and simple, so it has to be better right?.'

I jump at the chance to play any of them. I do not think that 3.5 is a good game, but it's got the most fun character-building minigame of any system I've played, and I still enjoy playing and DMing it. Paizo can go fuck themselves.

I enjoy 5e in so far as its pretty straight forward and easy for me to drop into, lots of people are interested and playing for the first time on it so that is fun.

DSP has fortunately improved on the ToB formulate so now its starting to meld into a hybrid of 3.PF customization and 4e style encounters.

The only reason I don't still play 4e is its a hassle getting my favorite framework up and running on MapTools, and I've found that I've exhausted most of its more common builds. There are quite a few but they never click the same way 3e charop can.

That's actually a very good question. I suppose almost everything about Elsbeth could be different depending on who raised her and how she grew up. She may not have as heavy an eating habit, much less she may not even have found Arcane magic as a means of escapism. In fact, if she grew up in Xen'drik and lived alongside the Half Giants, she may have become a Psion.

I have begun using Profession (soldier) and Profession (mercenary) more heavily in my game, namely in recognizing military tactics.

Normally when participating in larger battles, or at least against larger forces, I give DCs for recognizing things such as:
>this place would be an ideal ambush
>this is probably a false retreat
>they may be drawing you in to flank

And things of this nature. It's become a general purpose combat recognition thing for stuff that is harder to convey in the minds eye (exact troop movements on a large scale).

What similar ways could I make use of other professions?

Depends on your group. If people give half a fuck about roleplaying then just figure out a good backstory for him. Humble beginnings and obvious inexperience can help build bonds with other characters if he seeks out their help in learning to better himself.

Just... be nice about it, I think.
When I was a new GM, GMing for new players, there was one guy with more experience and lurked pfg who made a much better build than everything else, then kept trying to steer every scene with it and generally got angry if the spotlight didn't follow him.

I called him a powergamer back then but in retrospect (now that I'm pfg jaded too) his build was pretty standard without being too silly.
The powergame aspect of him wasn't his build, it was his attitude.

My advice is that if they're wary of you, just generally be a nice guy, show that you're working with the party and you also have their interests in mind, and be cool with letting everyone have their fun as well.
You don't disprove powergaming accusations by running the numbers of your build and showing how they're not that high; you disprove them by just being an enjoyable person to play with.

So, our DM is pitting us against what is probably best summed up as 'Berserker'. As in the weeaboo character.

Now problem is, if he's even remotely like our barbarian -and we're not mythics yet- we basically can't do anything to shut down his regeneration (we did manage to find cold/sonic would shut it down but he's also immune to energy damage just for extra cheese).

So I've got one thing I want to try.
I've got the setup for a teleport trap that doesn't offer a save. It's the big fat floortile kind though.

So. If I were to shift this sonofabitch to the positive energy plane, would that annihilate him despite his regeneration and immunities? I know positive/negative are not explicitly "energy damage", as those are purely fire/elec/sonic/cold/acid.

There's got to be more to it than that. This is about the story not the mechanics that enable the story.

Maybe instead of "he was a bandit" your character was raised by bandits, who were put down by a paladin and your character was adopted by the paladin instead of killed because he was so young. He was raised by the order, but other paladins always judged him for where he originally came from and now he has this chip on his shoulder for his "history."

Personally, I don't think redemption story arcs should be background stories. They should be played out in the game, otherwise they lose impact.

Can't you bang an avatar of the goddess without actually ruining the actual purity of the goddess? How else can you be the child of Shelyn in WotR?

I'm fairly sure something as significant as "rescue my brother and father from damnation" would give you a blank check on asking ANYTHING from her, since it's worth reminding people that saving those two from their current condition is basically her entire holy mission at the moment, and single "problem" on her mind.

That's a tough question, definitely. Honestly? It's mostly above our pay grade. That's what Bossmen Texas and Viking Editions need to make the call on. Speaking logically - Paizo will eventually cave and make a PF2E; let's be real here. It will either continue with a with a cleaner edition of their products (think the jump from 3.0 to 3.5 just hella slower timeline wise) or it will be more significant (I would see it being more similar from going from PF to some hybrid of PF and 5E myself, simplifying things but that might be too much of a stretch). Keeping in mind, of course, that the whole reason PF exists to begin with is because Paizo saw a market for people who were pissed off at the close of 3.5 for 4E, they likely won't want to make the same mistake either. Frankly, they're getting close to due for a new edition if they're going to do it.

As far as DSP goes - we'll do as we always do. We will keep writing and creating. We may make our own game (with requisite blackjack and hookers) but that's a HUGE effort and as a small company quite risky, we may re-write our products for PF2E, we may develop new products all together. Suffice to say, we'll keep doing what we do as long as you folks support us. It's not much of an answer, I know, but it's really the best one I think any of us can give.

Fun Fact: Nazhena has such a disgust towards the party in RoW because Radosek, the man you kill at the end of Book 1, was her lover and apprentice, and implied to be very much a man she was in love with, since I remember the book saying she treated him with haughty disdain (before throwing him in bed) because she didn't know how else to respond to the emotion of love.

Would it really be a huge effort? Because of the srd, could't you just lift everything Paizo did and just adjust here and there?
Hell almost all of Paizos rules are srd, if Paizo ever does a second edition too different instead of PF 1.5, anybody can just swooce right in and steal all they did and make a new game. Alchemist, Inquisitor, Brawler, they would be all up for grabs.
The main problem would be if DSP did it's game, and Rite did it's game, and RGG did it's game.

A realistic response. Although, what is holding back the development of your own game? Is it a production related issue? Because there are role playing games that have been successfully published and Kickstarted with only one or two man teams, and then only Kickstarted to get printed versions out. Drive thru rpg and other distributors make it possible, but I'm not going to pretend to know what you have to go through to achieve that there or at Paizo, and if contracts are involved..

You can use Automatic Bonus progression, but the setup that Paizo drafted isn't very good so you might want to scale your own. Otherwise, just add the Big 6's effects to other items in those slots for free and trust your players not to abuse your generosity?

The system assumes you have certain bonuses to certain statistics to keep up. That's what the Big Six represent. If you don't have them, it's going to make things really tough for you. So for PCs to favor other items, you need to give them a way to get those bonuses without having to take those items.

Paizo's alternate system is to bake those bonuses into the characters, and then decrease character wealth accordingly. Another way to handle it would be just giving them the bonuses for free (or attached to other items like >>44689407) and then increase the party's effective level by one (meaning they fight stronger opponents) to compensate.
