Pathfinder General /pfg/

Landmarks Edition

Have you ever fought a battle so memorable, that the scholars and kings of that realm write about your exploits for the years to come?

If you want build advice make sure to say what 3pp you can use, if any.

For someone who's only played D&D and Dark Heresy, how's Pathfinder compare?

Any groups looking for new players?

>> No.51158443

Most of the big, climactic battles my group's characters go on are either covert missions from whatever kingdom they work for or personal battles with people that aren't exactly widely known, even if they are big threats.

The fact that so few of us play bards also probably has something to do with that...

>> No.51158467

There are a few games that are very close to closing applications.


If you've played 3.5, Pathfinder is like that with some of the clutter reduced. If 3.5 is your comfy messy room, Pathfinder is when you've got company coming so you shove all your stuff in the closet.

You are presented with the following situations, how do you react?

>your GM tells you that the arrangement of several birds in a tree, cracks in the wall and an old man sitting form a perfect representation of the golden ratio. You are suddenly overcome with powerful nausea and need to make a will save. On a successful save you take 1 wisdom damage.

>At night while looking at the stars you are suddenly overcome with the realization of how cold and distant they are. A terrible dread overcomes you. You need to make a will save, on a successful save you take 1 wisdom damage.

>while bathing you begin hearing a distant scream. You realize that no matter what direction you face the screaming is always behind you.

>while alone in a room you hear a tapping from the mirror, there are smudges in the shape on a picture of stick figure at the height a child would draw

>the ogre midsetence begin babbling in tongues and vomits a pile of papers, shredded but covered in words. Reading them you realize they are from your own diary several days from now.

It's a two-handed weapon, and therefore gains 1.5x bonus to damage regardless of its handedness. This doesn't mean a large character can use two-weapon fighting with medium greatswords to get 1.5x damage on damage rolls with both weapons, since the rules state in this case they are treated as one handed weapons.

This is the key difference between Pikeman's Training and Phalanx Lancer Stance, because Pikeman's training treats it as a one-handed weapon, while Phalanx Lancer Stance has no such wording. This rule also applies to wielding a lance on horseback, because you are wielding it in one hand, but not treating it as a one-handed weapon.

This is a common misconception that makes people think piercing thunder is way shittier than it actually is. Really it's quite strong.

>> No.51159111

>put it in a pan?
You don't, you just put that shit together on a paper towel or plate, put it in the microwave, then take it out. No pans or grilling involved, all microwaved, since you are just using shredded cheese.

Its just like putting a sandwich together, except its a floppy tortilla instead of bread

>> No.51159151

whoops, misread what you meant.

The appeal of the microwave quesadilla is that its fact, you don't need to bother with the stove, and its just quick and easy finger food, so you can take it out of the microwave and take it immediately to your computer so you can eat while posting on 4chan

>> No.51159153

Right, but I'm saying is it really worth the minute you save if you're ending up with a microwaved tortilla instead of something more evenly heated?

Gotta ask, is losing Challenge really worth it?

You don't lose challenge, you just lose the order specific benefit of your challenge. So Order of the Dragon Cavalier doesn't give a bonus on attack rolls to his allies.

>> No.51159374

Seems like this homebrew is a little...let's say "lopsided". Adding a mount-specific thing while allowing for the removal of a mount--how would that work if you've taken an archetype that replaces the mount?

>> No.51159379

You don't lose All of your challenge, you still have your extra damage, from the challenge itself, you just lose the adjustment to Challenge your Order provides.

Well, its doesn't quite "require" Mount by RAW, its just a few of its abilities will just not work without it. You still get the Initiating though

>> No.51159410

>how would that work if you've taken an archetype that replaces the mount?
The mount based ability just wouldn't activate unless you get a mount from a different source. You still get essentially all the other things though

Considering most of the archetypes that remove Mount aren't that great and tend to be combat based, I'd say still getting the initiating is still a gain.

>> No.51159425

It's still shit design. Dont give dead abilities.

>So would Mounted Maneuver Expertise then work with just any horse or other mount you get your hands on?

So I was asking my DM about how he's handling drinking rules (since eventually I'll dip in Drunken Brute or Drunken Rager) and he gave me a choice between these two.



The first rules he's stated I'll immediately get sickened if I go over that cap, and the second rules I won't get a Dex benefit from "Stage 1".

So which do I go with? I mean originally I was just going to drink to mitigate having so few rounds of rage, but now I can get much more from it...

>Higher base damage numbers overall, but you also have a buffer called "Stamina" that acts like a shield for your real hit points
>Can take brief (about 10 minute) breaks to recover stamina
>Goblins are now basically vorcha; interstellar pests
>Magic is homogenized so there's no arcane/divine/occult divide, and none of the core classes get above 6th level spells (9th level are available, just not to core classes)
>Mechanic can overcharge gear and get a neat action economy tradeoff with their drone - either they take actions themselves, or they sacrifice actions so that the drone can take more than one action per turn. All Spellcasting is also spontaneous.
>Will include gravity rules, including 0G
>High tech armor and weapons are assumed to be the norm
>More Skill condensing, like what happened in the shift ffrom 3.5 to Pathfinder
>More Scaling, fewer set DCs
>Apparently there's Tyranids
>The Han will be an insectoid player race
>Basic Economy is Credits and UPB (Universal Polymer Base), one is standard and has no weight, being electronic, while the other is hard currency and can be used to craft things. Their prices are equivalent; 1 Cred = 1 UPB
>Crafting is Skill based, no feats required
>Option to upgrade old gear into new equipment if for some reason you're attached to a particular item
>Magic and enchanting is still a thing - nothing but cost stops you from having a +1 holy plasma cannon
>Antagonists include 'nids, pirates, corporations, evil religions, and more

You can probably afford to be vague about it--whether or not you're taking the Younger Sibling campaign trait for her, the trait's language gives you leeway to fit yourself into her timeline as long as you don't name dates, and failing that, you could just be adopted (by her, if not her parents).

From what I saw during the livestream, it's the latter. Being fair here, the playtest characters were a Technomancer, a Mechanic, and a Solarion, so they were all rather different from each other from the outset. I don't know how different an Operative or Soldier will be from one another.

It is important to note that DPR is not the goal. Alpha striking is. Kill all important enemies in the first two rounds of combat with Victorious Recovery, then mop up.

Level: 5th
Race: Dreige (Lords of the Mist update) or half-giant (Ultimate Psionics)
Classes: Warder (ordained defender, zweihander sentinel) 4/stalker (brutal slayer) 1
Domain/Inquisition: Conversion (use Wisdom in place of Charisma for Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate)
Martial Tradition: Stained Glass Champions

Ability Scores (25 point buy): Strength 17+2+1+2, Dexterity 12-2, Constitution 12, Intelligence 12, Wisdom 16+2+2, Charisma 7

• Combat: Practiced Initiator (stalker), +2 initiator level for stalker
• Race: Fey-Touched (Lords of the Mist), +2 trait bonus against compulsions and diseases, feyblood subtype
• Third Trait: Some method of gaining a +2 trait bonus to initiative checks, possibly through a campaign trait or Adopted
• Drawback: One of choice

• 1st-level: Altered Life (Bloodforge), use Wisdom modifier (+5) instead of Constitution modifier (+1) for hit points
• 3rd-level: Martial Charge, use a martial strike in place of a charge
• 5th-level: Victorious Recovery, once per encounter, recover initiator modifier (+5) upon reducing an opponent to zero or less hit points
• 5th-level (Stalker Art: Combat Art): Improved Initiative, +4 bonus to initiative checks

Custom Monk Weapon:
• +5 DP: Martial

• Attack Bonus with Martial Charge (Steel Flurry Strike) and Time Skitter: 4 BAB + 6 Strength modifier + 1 masterwork enhancement + 1 Time Skitter + 2 charging - 2 Steel Flurry Strike = +12, possibly against flat-footed AC
• Non-Critical Damage with Primal Warrior Stance and Steel Flurry Strike: 6d6 base weapon damage + 9 Strength modifier + 3d6 Steel Flurry Strike + 2 Broken Blade = 9d6+11 (average 42.5), and please remember that Steel Flurry Strike is three attacks

This character walks around with Time Skitter active nearly all the time, thanks to being able to recharge it as a standard action: https://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/43652765/#43653434

In other words, the character is permanently Hasted and has 40-foot speed in heavy armor.

The character opens up combat with a very high initiative check, then charges 80 feet with Martial Charge, activating Steel Flurry Strike and Reflected Blade Style, probably targeting flat-footed AC.

>> No.51161811


Assuming there are no critical hits (which trigger Brutal Strikes) and no damage reduction for Reflected Blade Style + Steel Flurry Strike...
• One hit (42.5 damage): Enough damage to take down two CR 4s
• Two hits (85 damage): Two CR 7s
• Three hits (127.5 damage): Two CR 10s are most likely dead

Alternatively, instead of using Reflected Blade Style, the character can use Bronze Knuckle for +7 average damage with each hit.

Once again, assuming there are no critical hits (which trigger Brutal Strikes) and no damage reduction for Bronze Knuckle + Steel Flurry Strike...
• One hit (49.5 damage): Still enough to take down one CR 4, possibly a CR 5 with some luck
• Two hits (99 damage): One CR 8 dead
• Three hits (148.5 damage): One CR 11 dead

Then Victorious Recovery recharges essentially all maneuvers. The character repeats the routine and hopefully kills off other important enemies.

This a 5th-level character. Their other highlights include:
• Wisdom for hit points in place of Constitution.
• Wisdom for all Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate checks.
• Detect Evil and twice-rolled Perception from Eyes of the Crane.
• Scent from Running Hunter's stance.
• At-will noncombat healing from Enduring Crane Strike.
• Hasted most of the time, with Rising Zenith Strike as a backup enemy-exploder.

Should Weapon Master's Handbook custom weapons be banned, the character will have to settle for less damage with a sansetsukon.

How much less?

I also don't think your maneuver selections are valid. When you multiclass initiators together you don't get to skip prerequisites if you have it on the previous class, but have to build up the 'tree' from scratch. You've got six maneuvers from the first level of Stalker, all at Initiator Level 5 because of how you combined 4 levels of another class + Practiced Initiator. You need to take two Bronze Blade maneuvers (which you did), two Riven Hourglass maneuvers (one shown, one assumed), two Shattered Mirror maneuvers (one shown, one assumed) and a Primal Fury strike to meet the prerequisite for Primal Warrior Stance. You don't have enough maneuvers to do so.

Without multiclassing (and in particular, without the IL boost from Practiced Initiator) you won't be able to accrue this many third-level strikes at level 5 either; the trick falls off from this point forward as well due to the way the trait works. You can do something similar-ish to do this with Advanced Study but not as quickly, and it starts eating feat slots fast.

This is not quite the case, because:

If you multiclass as an initiator, your new class still pays attention to the maneuvers your first class knows and readies.

It's not hard to make a good, sexy male character for an ERP game. Just throw together an adonis or a good natured less rapey Rance, and you're done. I'd do it myself if I wasn't already applying as one of the girls.

Currently we've got arrogant super thief, trap healslut, generic kitsune, cute blacksmith doggo, frail ill investigator sheep, dickass noble, BraveHorse (TM), and Literal Furry.

Then again once I'm in "Stage 1" inebriation I'd probably be afraid to keep drinking for rage rounds, which defeats the whole purpose of going Drunken Brute or Rager to begin with (drinking for free rounds).

That is a very well done build. You are a much better buildmaker than me.

I was wondering, if for the sake of winning arugments, you could make another similar build but with some different constraints and a diffferent ultimate objective?

Let's break this down.
First off, no sane GM would allow a custom weapon like that, especially with the Broken Blade potential.
The failure of the custom weapon rules is on Paizo.

Second, Broken Blade being nerfed soon is very public knowledge and this build's numbers will be obsolete when the errata comes.

The entire basis of your damage comes from two flawed concepts that either most GMs will reject, or will soon be archaic.

Third, you have nothing to counter difficult terrain, which you can't charge through. It generally has very little it can do to get around any obstacle that stops it from being able to charge, even if targets would be in range. This may include weaker enemies in the way of your alpha strike. Admittedly Reflected Blade Style is a good range extender here but is far from a fix-all.

>Wisdom for all Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate checks.
At five skill points per level. You can be a good face, but a skillmonkey you are not.
Assuming you also want maxed perception for Eyes of the Crane and Sense Motive for Rising Zenith Strike, you have zero other skill points to spend, apart from maybe FCBs.

Diplo/Bluff/Intimidate all fill very similar roles. A character can generally get by with only two of them, maybe even only one.

Sense Motive is to be expected of any WIS character, and Perception is a no-brainer for ANYTHING.

It's easily more than +1, so I'm going to assume you're being facetious. The fact that it takes until 13th to get heavy armor, and medium is only at 7th, means that you have shit for AC until then or until spending spells/pool for it, which hurts your output over the course of the day. The 2h PA scimitar might be a bit better damage to help shore it up, but it doesn't change the fact that dex just clicks easier, earlier, and works with far more race options. It allows you to get more other stats like con or int, while also keeping up your attacks and defenses.

Either way Magus is woefully narrow in build options. ISG+scimitar+Hexcrafter+blackblade is cool, but goddamn do I wish that I could do something different.

I'd actually disagree on the str and dex playing similarly. Str needs a few defensive buffs to match the early level survivability of dex. The frostbite thing is a memebuild because it requires the enemy to be:
1. not resistant to cold
2. not immune to non-lethal
3. not immune to mind affecting
Which heavily limits the creatures it can be used on.

>> No.51167637

well, technically it's just rapid reload (and alch. cartridges if early firearm) that lets you reload as a free action. The main thing is that you need a free hand to reload a pistol, but dual wielding means your hands are full. Thus, a hexcrafter takes Prehensile Hair, which allows him to have a third hand for the purposes of reloading. Then you just pass one gun to the hair (free action), reload both guns with your newly-free hand (free action, free action), pass the gun back (free action), and keep shooting, without interrupting your full attack.

The thing is, if it has either cold res or the non-lethal res, your debuff output is severely limited, if not completely walled. This is also not considering that it might just be better to kill the thing outright, rather than debuff it into the ground. I guess the frostbite build is efficient with spell slots since it is charge based, but it requires a lot of feats, and has the aforementioned issues.
