Pathfinder General /pfg/

What's your favorite 3pp/homebrew for a draconic race? Like "quarter-dragons."
Believe it or not, Paizo still isn't offering something for that. Why are they afraid to?

Enough about DHB's optimization, let's look at his backstory. How does he compare to other applicants in that regard? Let's take a look at it.

Backstory: Operative Monday's past is one shrouded in mystery, in no small part to his own effort. What he knows of his own past is what he has read in a dossier, as the majority of his memories prior to entering the Lion Blades have been removed, at his request, using Sequester Thoughts. Part of him suspects that the dossier is a fabrication, used to inundate himself with a false past behind a wall of blank memory. The dossier tells of a wealthy merchant's son sent to Kitharodian Academy for his education. Mother deceased during his teenage years with two younger sisters and a senile father now living out his old age comfortably in a sea side southern Taldoran town. Operative Monday has met both of these women who claim to be his younger sisters, and suspects they belong to another cell of the Lion Blades. Their names are Hannah and Sareen Vedger, and they run his claimed family's textile business together. He has not met his father, but puts this up more to being married to his work than to some sort of conspiracy among the upper echelon. While in Kitharodian Academy Operative Monday apparently grew bored of life there and instead turned to an ever increasingly interesting life of crime, mostly consisting of gambling, smuggling, and high profile theft. This was when he first caught the attention of The Lion Blades as someone of possible recruitment. In the dossier it describes him being captured and offered a deal, entering a shadow school rather than a prison cell. This was part that Operative Monday believes wholeheartedly, as it is in line with his personality.

>> No.51796396

>>51796374
During harsh training endured while at the Shadow Schools Operative Monday was shown to have an great talent for both espionage and unarmed combat. A report among the dossier describes that after eight months at the shadow school Operative Monday accomplished what is known as The Vow of Self, using one's force of personality and might as a form of self empowerment, this lead to many of his current powers. As well this lead to his ability to exchange luck between individuals as the ebb and flow of fortune. These and more skills were detailed in reports by instructors at the Shadow Schools.

After graduating is when Operative Monday's current memories begin. Both an exploitable past and the locations, structure, and organization of the shadow schools he trained at are protected by his obscured memories. This was at the age of 26. During the next 11 years Operative Monday served the nation of Taldor faithfully, traveling abroad for long periods of time to hunt enemies of the state, often infiltrating foreign political structure for these missions. Entering a noble family's service as a scribe or manservant was not an uncommon tactic. It was not unheard of that he would travel with another Lion's Blade, but more often than not he would go alone. During this time he became close to several other Lion Blades. The plucky Megaar Dreer, Operative Half-jack, a halfling man adept at both forgery and information control and Adriana Vess, Operative Little Miss, the woman who claimed to have been his instructor while in the shadow schools.

>> No.51796410

>>51796396
Five years ago Operative Monday was trusted with founding his own Shadow School in Oppara, now known as The Lion's Den. It trained Lion Blades in a similar manner to how Operative Monday performed his missions, long term infiltration and observation of foreign targets, teaching young Lion Blades how to deal with being away from their homeland, often in hostile territory. Operative Monday now both taught and went on mission, often on a six month cycle. His current mission is one in a series. For this mission he had taken on the identity of Morgan Alsdraut.

Personality: Operative Monday has a rather strange personality at this point, deeply suspicious and overall disillusioned. Despite this embittered mindset he is powerfully patriotic towards Taldor, and the more he sees of the world the more he grows to love his homeland. However he keeps his country and countryman at arms length, as one can not rely on them while gone from the country. One's own body, mind, and personality are what one must strengthen until that of iron to survive the demands of being a Lion Blade's commander, especially with the weight of running his own Shadow School on his shoulders. Operative Monday compensates for this mainly with pleasures of the flesh, gambling, women, drink. He considers this as his major weakness. The empowerment and strengthening of the flesh coupled with his own weakness for it represents for him a constant struggle.

I hope you burn in the lowest pits of Hell after your untimely and self-assisted passing, you disgusting whore-son of a goat and the cur-father of maggot riddled vermin.

I can not describe in words the amount of hope that you might take your own life. It might seem pretty and overreacting, and it is. I wholly acknowledge that. My day was not even that bad, all things considering, so it is not merely venting either.

Merely the way you have acted has somehow triggered a cascade of hate and loathing, directed towards you. This thread filled with vomit and abandoned to die for a reason, you scraped back to life on the edge of its death. And for what reason? What possible reason could you have had for that? Do you always, upon meeting a wild puddle of vomit, scoop it up and bring it home to play with and to share with your family?

Because that is what you have done.

But I am not cruel. I hope you use a gun, so you don't have time for regrets or panic after you do the deed. No one deserves that. Not even you.

Forrest (and Gareth too, and probably every other dev) has said many times that gestalt playtest data is very skewed and is taken with a large spoonful of salt, if taken at all.

However, I've run some basic numbers on single-class self pact avowed and I think the damage it dishes out can be a bit too out of hand: at level 8 with overcharge modulation, every single round you can reliably destroy an average CR8 creature from full health, and you will also have pounce to move up to 60ft before doing it each turn.

Usually to get good data you need to separate the gains from the gestaltening. Now, in some cases that's very easy: some Gestalts have very little to do with oneanother.

On the other hand, if your gestalt is massively improving your stats, replacing your BAB/saves, and directly enhancing the abilities you use in your main (like Initiator/Aegis combo, as a simple straightforward example), then the mileage of the thing to be tested is massively altered.

It can be good to know just what can happen when it's optimized in a gestalt, but at most that's just to help lock down some of the more questionable wording for multiclass interactions.

No it wasn't, his life before old age was one I think many of us are living now.

In case nobody here knows what Ezren's backstory is, let me give a quick recap.

Ezren is the son of a merchant who was wealthy enough that Ezren could live a life free of work - and that's exactly what Ezren did. He played at life, never amounting to anything but the lazy son of a successful businessman. He was smart, sure, but never applied it, and as the years went on he sunk further and further into the comfy NEET life.

And then dad died.

>Save-or-teleport people to a holding cell
Save or lose is bad design. Always.
If you can only do it to helpless or uncoscious enemies instead, you still have to defeat your enemies first, with the added poblem of having to go non-lethal. Or you have to be very sneaky.
It also brings the flavor close to pokeballs, since you have to defeat a pokemon otherwise they just escape the pokeball.

Maybe a save or be stuck in the cell for a round. Eliminates an enemy for a round so the party can focus on someone else, but it's not insta KO.

You can pull off some pretty weird shit, but it also depends on how the DM intends to handle it. Going by the assumption that he understands the implications behind it, you could certainly use the boots to fly, or be carried by away by the fast but weak party member.

Increasing your weight too high would probably cause more problems than it could solve, since you run the risk of destroying your body with a simple misstep. What also matters is what is defined as your body. Does it also lighten any carried gear? If so, then you could use it to theoretically carry near unlimited amounts of weight. Of course, the problem wouldn't be carrying it in this case, but lifting it to the point where you could feasibly be determined as to having it on your person.

Realistically though, the boots sound like a fantastic get out of jail free card for swimming, climbing, and falling. Outside of that, there's not much practical use behind it.

I'd assume that as long as I don't exceed my push/drag weight in extra bodyweight I should be fine.

As far as some ideas I've had... I'm playing an unchained monk, so my flying kick range should be drastically increased by this item. I also have a racial climb speed, I imagine being able to fling yourself from craig to craig without fear of falling would speed that right the fuck up. Having these boots will mean that the various ki powers that have to do with standing on shit that shouldn't support you are irrelevant and thus I can get other ki powers.

>>51798849
I believe it's either a free or a swift action. I doubt my GM will allow me to directly alter my damage die with it, at least on normal attacks, though he did say that if I were to find an intelligent weapon that was willing to cooperate and attached the boots to it somehow, it'd be able to use them to similar effect.

Your flying kick range is solely determined by your fast movement speed, an unfortunate but hardcoded limitation of the ability, so that one is pretty much entirely DM fiat. You are correct though that ANY surface will be able to support your weight. It doesn't matter if you can't fly when you can just balance on a twig at the end of a really long branch, or run on water, or jump off of falling leaves.

>Another idea I had was to employ drop bear tactics and just cannonball someone from the ceiling, though that might hurt me too.

Assuming a Caster Level of 20 and Spheres of Power, what is the best combination of Alteration Traits for making a Caster be able to temporarily do some melee? So no feats like power attack, just Alteration traits. Potentially losing some players soon and DM isn't sure how fast they'll find replacements. Want to have something just in case. (CL20 is from various boosts, with her level being 11, so no CL15 talents.)

I was thinking Size Change for that massive boost to strength, Tentacle Transformation for a number of grappling tentacles, and then Undead Traits for 1d8 Blood drain. (1d2+1 die size per 5CL | 1d2->1d4->1d6->1d8->2d6, right?)

Firstly, I don't think that's true. At best, everything in your post is a gross oversimplification.

And second--what, nobody's allowed to write a character backstory without it revolving around a single trait? You could say the same thing about most of the female characters.

His family has been fighting in the crusades for generations, he grew up Nerosyan. Had a weird thing with talking to foreign crusaders. Had some weird shit when his grandfather died that he didn't really feel much because he had never met the guy. Father trained his older brother. Older brother died. Felt bad. Heard his dad cursing the fact his family had nothing to show for their service. Got the idea of becoming a hero king and founding his own nation among the crusaders. Got an emissary familiar when he got the idea. Worked fingers to the bone. Talked to more foreign crusaders. Trained hard. Went to war. Almost died and was saved by an old friend.

At level 1, an 18 should be the gold standard of primary stats. Lower is generally a sign you don't have the stats to pull off being good at your job.

If starting at level 4 to 7, a lower initial score can and should be used to shore up weaker stats, and to use the additional point to increase your primary. At 8 however, ideally you want two point in your primary.

Depends on the level you plan for, if you plan to cap at about 12 one odd Stat, if you cap at 16 higher you want your primary stat even, you get a total of five stats from leveling and can get five more into your primary from wish.

The following point is debatable, but I feel builds should always be created with the abilities the character can do on entering the game as a primary concern, and anything more than one or at most two levels away should be considered effectively irrelevant. If you start play at level 1 your build should not take into account how many stat points you have at level 20; it simply does not matter as most games will not reach two extra levels, let alone your character surviving that long.

If you DO have a GM who will mollycoddle you from levels 1 to 20 on one character then your build won't matter and you can probably bully them into letting yourself retrain because they are probably a monty haul GM anyway.

Always build characters for the level you're at, not in some 6 levels time.

Is this good enough if I want to switch between archery and melee as emergency. Assuming that I will increase Str every number of lvls.

Str 14.
Dext 18.
Con 14.
Int 14.
Wis 12.
Char 5.

How survivable is archery compared to melee?

Power Attack and Furious Focus.

Mercurial Duelist could have been so much more

Furious focus seems like a waste of a feat

Why would you increase STR every level?
Dex is far more important since you should be full attacking every round with archery.

You're a martial. Any feat you take is a waste of a feat.

Don't be pedantic, furious focus is a pretty crappy feat.

I've put it on every martial I've ever made, and they always seem to become the solidest damager in the group.

What else are you going to spend your feats on? Metamagic or maybe spell focus to help your DCs along?

Oh wait, you're a filthy muggle.

You would get more damage out of being a bard and taking arcane strike, you are getting one damage every eight levels, where dex will give you reflex saves, to hit, and ac.

Furious Focus is better than Weapon Focus on a full BAB character until level 6. Even after 6 it's good.

Are switch hitters good? (archery followed by melee as they close as a ranger/slayer/wathever)

>> No.51803191

>>51803176
Never as good as dedicating to one or the other, but a ranger can make it work.

>> No.51803195

>>51803176

It's the most feat-intensive build in the game, but they're incredibly useful... And kind of redundant, since a switch-hitter is often in a party that will kill an encounter within 5-6 rounds, making the switch-hitting kind of useless except for situational stuff like "you get ambushed in the tavern" or "you're fighting at range."

Is there any class/build that allows you to fight as a Roman Legionary? First throw the Pilum, then strike with the sword?

A (Desperado optionally) Privateer Warlord might pull it off efficiently, but then an initiator doesn't get much benefit either due to the abundance of maneuvers that allow for movement as part of attacking.

>> No.51803258

I think there's one that lets you fight in a Phalanx formation... Provided you have thirteen other peeps to pull it off with.

Piercing Thunder Warlord-there's plenty of spear-throwing maneuvers, being in any of the discipline's stances lets you pick up your weapon as a free action, and you just need one feat so that you can use all the other maneuvers with your gladius too.
