Decent starting image edition!

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?

>What's your favorite 3pp/homebrew for a draconic race?
The way I used to run it was that every sorcerer eventually had a dragon in their family tree. With the way bloodlines have come around I've had to put a lot of thought into changing that for my homebrew setting, or adding a metric fuck ton of other types of dragons to explain all the various bloodlines that are popping up.

Still putting it off to be honest, luckily none of my players have wanted to be a sorcerer lately.

There are several eldest, so you can find one that fits your personal outlook. They offer one hell of a health insurance plan, give you back up, and help you travel.

Yes. Unchained rogue is a really enjoyable class, whereas Slayer is practically more vanilla than a Fighter. The Sneak Attack progression difference is massive, but it's give and take with the BAB difference going the other way (which I don't think is as severe Tbh). Finesse Training, additional skill usages, an actually worthwhile rogue talent list (including a some buffs to them), and Debilitating Injury each make the Unchained Rogue just a little bit more interesting to play in a fight than a Slayer, who is ultimately just going to wind up as a pile of Ranger combat style feats and Studied Target.

CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING
Assuming that the character in-question is an Orc Fighter 7 (Weapon Master) / Barbarian 1 with Gloves of Dueling, Weapon Focus, and a +3 weapon, we can safely guess that in prime combat-mode (that is to say, he's putting everything into this round of combat and thus is raging), the character in-question has +21 to hit. This is with the most generous of assumptions, having stacked as much as I could to get a high STR bonus and nontyped attack bonuses via Fighter. A less-hyperfocused character would have an even lower attack bonus; DHB's character is an outlier even with the example given.

Against an adult green dragon:
>http://www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/monster-listings/dragons/dragon/chromatic-green/adult-green-dragon/

On his charge he does the following damage on his initial pounce:
>.7*3*(4.5*3+21)+2*.05*3*(4.5*3+21)+.7*2*(4.5*3+17)+2*.05*2*(4.5*3+17) = 131.6
The dragon now has 41 HP

This is on average, and the dragon now has to make a save against Misfortune. Let's assume it makes the save.

The dragon goes up against AC 31 for its first 4 attacks because of the Protector familiar, and the characters takes 50% less damage because of protector familiar.

The dragon does:
>.5*(4.5+12)+.05*2*(4.5+12)+.5*2*(3.5*2+8)+.05*2*2*(3.5*2+8)+.2*(4.5+4)+.05*2*(4.5+4)+.3*(4.5+4)+.05*2*(4.5+4)+.3*(4.5+12) = 38.8
The character still have 51 effective health, transferring 50% of damage to his familiar.

That's a way you can play it, although honestly I'll admit hoarded luck probably gave a bonus to too many things.

Although presuming 18 cha, you can get hold 4 luck, which gives you a +1 on all rolls. With improved luck, you push that up to 6, which is a +2 on everything, and fortune's favored, that's a +3 on everything. Throw on another improved luck, and you're at 8, which is +4 on everything as far as I can see, and you've spent 3 vigilante talents to do that.

I'm not sure how you're making it to +6 myself, so please tell me how since I'm not seeing it. I mean with 22 Cha, you could push it to +5, but you're already investing a lot into it, so I don't really see a problem with letting you invest in something like that.

Probably the dullest class in Pathfinder, fitting for one of the dullest franchises in the history of movie franchises. Each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.

Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody?just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

>a-at least the books were good though r-right
"No!"
The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs."

I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King.

Yeah, Tieflings (and Aasimars) are generally a bit better and have more options, but Sylphs are probably the third best of the planetouched races after those two.

While you are correct, part of why it's so absurd on DHB's character is that he stacks Self Pact Avowed on top of it. Fortune Thief bonuses are a luck bonus, but indirectly scale with Charisma due to it affecting your maximum luck, so having both classes at the same time effectively gives double Charisma scaling to almost everything.

Smite can work better for a dip if you've got a high Charisma modifier, since it boosts both attacks and AC. But Challenge only really works if you can get it at or near your full level.

>Wasn't there a new Paladin swashbuckler archetype?
If there was, its not on th SRD yet. Do you recall what book?
Otherwise there is a 3pp one that exists, but its Flaming Crab Games

I don't know, they both are competing for a swift action which makes the combination unwieldy I think.

>>51797171
It was one of the more recent leaks. I can't remember what the book name was, but I think it was posted around the same time as the Phantom Blade spiritualist and Silksworn Occultist.

Yeah, but they both otherwise stack entirely.

I'm not arguing that, just that popping two swift actions against everything your trying to kill seems to tedious for how I usually like to play.

>precise strike and smite.

Yeah, I think this'd be a good archetype for going into the PrC. At least at first glance.

Well it's hardly against everything. Especially since the Smite that Chevaliers get is 1/day.

But on that once per day, you can add almost double your damage to all attacks against something.

This is actually perfect!
Plus, you still have Medium armor for Breastplate, and the only important thing you lose is Deflection bonus on Smite, Mercy, and Spells, which is fine since the PiC would've kept you from casting anyhow.

Still, losing mercy does suck a bit, but since Bond is untouched you could possibly do d some other archetypes to mix in as well

I'm playing one in a home-game right now. I combined it with the Chosen One archetype (they both alter Smite, but my GM ruled since Chosen One just pushed Smite back by two levels instead of actually changing it mechanically, he'd let these two archetypes stack).

Is there a decent Injuries table somewhere?
