I need help deciding what to do with a prisoner. I will describe the situation that lead up to me gaining a prisoner.

>party is over at my character's home
>my character is a street doctor who runs a free clinic
>suddenly some guys burst in, badly injured
>have just enough time to get two stable and get the story out of them
>they got ambushed by some guys while moving a shipment of opium pretty sure it was opium
>my character didn't expect combat so he stayed in the back and used CLW on the two injured guys who came in and sent them back out with the rest of my part to go fight
>fight ends pretty quickly with two guys running away
>I tell the party to drag in the dead and unconscious guy
>we search and strip them
>we find out the guys are gangsters and about the shipment
>they are grateful and offer to put in a good word for us with their boss
>everyone sees me as I take a crate out of the corner, stabilize the unconscious guy, tie him up, and nail him inside the crate
>tell them to leave the other body there and I'll take care of it
>gangsters leave, say they'll talk it over with their boss, if their boss likes the sound of us they'll come back tomorrow
>I spend the evening making bandages out of the dead man's clothing, burying the dead man, and giving the unconscious guy broth to keep him alive then renailing him into the crate after putting in rag padding so he doesn't chafe
>expect guy to be out for 2-3 more days unless I decide to use CLW on him I'm a witch with the healing hex so I can basically any time
>now I have to decide what to do with the guy

So the thugs who came in for help know I have the guy, my party knows I have the guy, his friends probably have no idea the guy is still alive and that I have him.

What should I do with the guy? My character doesn't have the nerve to sell him into slavery or selling him to be made into street soup, and at this point I'm too invested to just kill him.

>> No.51874110

I ran a game where the ghouls had formed a noble caste that ruled over human peasants. They actually had what I thought was a pretty neato system for how they determined their ancestry and line of succession.

How is worked is the ghoulish nobility had a living elven family that served as their personal guards, servants, etc. This family lived in and amongst the ghoulish nobles. When the ghouls desired a new member to their clan they would select a member of the elven family and infect them with ghoul fever. How line of succession worked is that it was entirely by infection point and not by ancestry. Meaning even if two ghouls were separated by 4 generations in the elven family if they were infected by the same ghoul they had status based on time of turning and the status of their infector. If a ghoul in the noble caste was to infect and turn someone not of the elven family, particularly a non-elf as it was considered generally dirty and weaker they inherited a status similar to that of a bastard child among mortal nobility.

The players mainly dealt with a LE Tyrant Anti-paladin ghoul who was tasked with keeping the southern border. The ghouls were not expansionist and content with telling the players, a family of dwarves raised to noble status, to simply keep out of their territory and they would not be bothered. The ghouls did this because their own northern front was enough to keep them busy.

Nah, that'd be dumb.

It's... well, she's complicated. As said, it would be a lie that she would never get into a fight with a fellow party member, but to take that sentence and twist it to mean "Hurr Durr she wants to beat up the party 'cause she's a cunt" is wrong. She lives for fighting, that's true, but there are so many different contexts for her to fight someone in, because it's how she communicates.

If she respects someone, she'll want a friendly spar to test their mettle.

If she likes someone, she'll want to spar on the regular so they both get stronger.

If she's attracted to someone, she'll demand they fight her, and if he agrees she'll see where things go in the heat of the moment.

But she'll never throw the first punch (unless it's a "LET'S SEE YOU GRIT THOSE TEETH" type moment where she sees Party Paladin in despair and decides that it's better for him or her to be mad at the evil teammate than to be sulking over spilled milk. And even that would be one non-power attack non-aether channel non-lethal unarmed strike.)

She's a very physical person, and expects people to be just as physical with her as she is with them.

Yeah, in base PF it increases your Arcane Spell Failure chance. But if I'm understanding Somatic Spherecasting right then you wouldn't have an ASF since it's light armor.

>> No.51874796

You can take the somatic casting drawback twice. If you only take it once, then you indeed take NO ASF in light armor. Bards and Summoners have similar armor rules.

If you take it twice, you take ASF from any armor.

>> No.51874797

Frankly? Just play a human. the racial FCB humans get massively expands the spell list you have available at any given time, meaning you can pick up some utility casting stuff.

One thing though - the situation you describe tells me you might want to go for an arcanist over a sorcerer. I like sorcerer better, but being able to prep a sorc spell list for the day from a spell book is somewhat more powerful than basic sorcerer stuff. Just an idea, though, and I don't think I'd personally do it, as I dislike Arcanist.

>> No.51874830

I don't think you'd deal with the ASF in mithral breastplate, but if you aren't proficient with medium armor then you take some other penalties.

Is the tone realistic and focused on overcoming the hurdles of actually setting up an excavation?

Speaking of, who are the party? Legitimate archaeologists working for an institution of learning? Treasure-hunters seeking to pawn their ill-gotten gains on the black market?

Oh, I remember those guys from my Kingmaker campaign. They first met the party before I joined the campaign, and it was a really bad meeting for them on account of the party rogue's near genocidal hatred of fey. IIRC, he climbed up a tree to try and get one of them, put was pushed out of the tree and KO'd by falling damage. The rest of the party kept him KO'd so they could actually talk with the pixie and fairy dragon.

The second time we met them, we were coming back to our city to have the dead rogue rezzed after he died, and the set-up was that we had a large cart-wagon pulled by two horses, one ridden by our bard (the rogue's best friend) and the other by the party's oracle. Meanwhile, my Kensai Magus walked ahead of the horses, while the rogue's corpse was setting in the cart along with whatever loot we were bringing back.

I don't remember if the pixie even survived the first encounter with the rogue, but I as we were traveling back the fairy dragon happened to cross paths with us. When he saw the dead rogue, he came up to the horses (standing directly behind my magus, whom he had never met before) and then broke the invisibility he was using to safely approach us before seeing the rogue was dead.

He said to the bard, "Oh, I see you made the right choice and killed that psycho!" This obviously trigger the bard, who was still upset over his friend's death, and he screamed as he pulled out his crossbow to shoot the fairy dragon. Except... When we rolled initiative, my Kensai won first turn. He hadn't seen any of this, only head them speaking, and in response to hearing the bard's exclamation, he reflexively drew his sword, spun around, got a critical hit and dealt almost max damage, dropping the fairy dragon in one blow. The DM said I just cut him straight in half, and my character shook the blood from his blade, sheathed it, and turned to carry on again. The bard kept the corpse, later had it skinned to make a football. The rogue loved the story.

>> No.51876048

Gallowspire is all the way across Ustalav from Razmiran. They'd be torn to shreds by vampires and werewolves by the time they got there. Remember, Razmiran is basically North Korea. They've got very little power, and a lot of boasting to overcompensate.

>> No.51876122

Yes, it does! It works pretty dang well actually- though you have to make smart choices about what you can live without! You also need a lot of mental focus to get the most benefit out of the powers.

The usual strategy I've seen is taking Conjuration, which has a weak resonant power (it only affects ONE SPELL on the Occultist list) and a VERY strong Focus Power (summon monster up to SM 7, one minute per level), and trading the resonant power for it out for a Champion Haunted Implement, which grants +2 to all damage rolls. If you invest mental focus in it, you get the ability to benefit from the spirit's spirit bonus. This doesn't expend Mental Focus (good) and you can use it as many times a day as you have points of mental focus in the implement (also good) but it only lasts for one round (not great, encourages nova'ing)

That's really the only power and implement I would trade out. If you can scrape up enough Mental Focus for it, you MIGHT be able to combine it with the Trappings of the Champion panoply, which essentially turns you into a frontline melee combatant with its resonant and focus powers. You also gain a pretty weird ability to basically create mini-Haunts with a touch spell, which might not see much use, but is still interesting.

>Gallowspire is all the way across Ustalav from Razmiran. They'd be torn to shreds by vampires and werewolves by the time they got there. Remember, Razmiran is basically North Korea. They've got very little power, and a lot of boasting to overcompensate.
Not if Razmir himself actually left Thronestep to lead the army himself. He is a level 19 wizard with enormous resources and power unto his own. Crossing by water through Lake Encarthan then over the Hungry Mountains with an army would read Gallowspire.

The idea is that Razmir does not care how many of his followers survive the march if he gets there with all the supplies he needs he can open the way through Gallowspire to consume the Whispering Tyrant.

Also I know Ustalav is bad, but Razmir rolling the dice in a push through it would survive with quite a bit. Especially with Razmir at the actually front. The idea would be Razmir is clearing the way and preoccupied with all the vampires, werewolves, etc. and that's why the PCs have things to do book 1 because Razmir is distracted with bigger threats.

Sounds like the plot of a movie, doesn't it?

A mysterious young woman (dryad, though ideally huldra) rescues a small child stuck out in the wilderness. Forced to honor her agreement to bring the boy back after he discovers her tail, the Huldra protects the lad with her magic and arboreal wisdom, learning a thing or two about humanity along the way.

And then it's discovered the boy's father is a widower and he ends up with the Huldra.

So I had my first session of Reign of Winter! It was short but sweet. Our PCs were walking around town talking about the rumors of strange happenings out in the nearby woods. Vivex, my PC, had to complain because she spent a lot of time out in those woods. My character's adoptive father Volk had bought her a set of warm, winter clothes with a pair of cute mittens, because of the increasing chill creeping into the land, which my character was extremely grateful for because she HATES the cold (poor thing picked the wrong AP). Our conversation was interrupted by the mayor, who needed us to help deal with a kidnapping that turned out to be less rumor and more real! Some noble lady from another city was kidnapped and the mayor wanted us to talk to her sole surviving guard so we could rescue hern. Why us? Well, probably because we're a monster family living in a human settlement and tougher than any one else she could send. She didn't want to have to ask BIG GOVERNMENT for their help, so the job fell to us: a winter wolf, succubus, and dragon!

We found the survivor, he told us about how the only place he'd seen these kinds of monsters before was in the service of the Winter Witches of Irrisen. That set my character on edge, since she had just recently been attacked by a witch who may or may not have been Winter-y in disposition. She also learned that Volk is also one of these "Winter-Touched" creatures created by those Irriseni witches, and will have a lot of questions for him when this is all done!

We got the info about where to go and headed off after buying supplies. Potions of Resist Energy aren't cheap, and that's sad because my character's vulnerability to cold is going to be a real problem. She hates all this cold weather! She saw snow for the first time not too long ago, and she really hates snow! But she's determined to help out with this, because she's looking for the chance to be a hero... and drive off this cold!

This can only end badly.

Got my character ready for Saturday's game. Magical Child (Vigilante) Tengu. Believes she is the chosen Hexeater that Besmara favors above all others, to the extent that she believes can never fail: The entire world was made to favor her. Her familiar is a Parrot named Mr. Peepers, who saved her from drowning and told her she was to be Besmara's chosen herald. The parrot is most likely an elemental (Chuspiki) in disguise, trying to trick her into becoming this deluded hero for fun. But for now, she believes she is the once and future Chosen Princess of the Shackles, destined to unite all pirates under her. (Rawk.)

Mechanically I'm still a little stumped. I want to focus on aid another with the Helping Hand vigilante talent. I have +20 to Linguistics and Orator at level 1, so I can lie all day long and most people won't question it (although they might question my sanity).

Let us illustrate the point more clearly, then. Here is a Paizo + Avowed 1 + Avowed 2 only build at 3rd-level, using a vanilla human as the race.

Level: 3rd
Race: Human
Class: Avowed (undead [lich] pact, balefire infusion, aether blow)

Key Ability Score: Dexterity 20 = base 18 + racial 2

Key Traits:
Combat: Reactionary
Social: Student of Philosophy
Possibly another trait with a drawback

Human: Point Blank Shot
1st-level: Precise Shot
3rd-level: Overcharge Modulation (lifeleech pulse)

Shapes: Aether barrage ×3

Lesser Clauses: Hidden knowledge, sightseer, lifeleech pulse

5 Dexterity modifier
+2 Reactionary
Total: +7

Aether Barrage Attacks:
1 attack from BAB
1 attack from aether barrage's second purchase
Total Attacks: 2

Range: 100 feet + 30 feet from caster level = 130 feet

Aether Barrage Attack Bonus:
+5 Dexterity modifier
Total: +7/+7, targets touch AC

Aether Barrage Damage:
2d8 aether pulse
+5 Dexterity modifier
Total: 2d8+5 (average 14), multiplied by 1.5 (average 21) due to balefire infusion, Empower Spell-Like Ability, and Overcharge Modulation

Two 130-foot-range attacks at a +7 bonus, targeting touch AC and dealing 21 damage each (for a total of 42 if they both hit), is fairly impressive for a 3rd-level character.

The character's noncombat utility includes:
• Hidden knowledge: +6 bonus to all Knowledge checks, and using Knowledges untrained
• Sightseer: See perfectly in any darkness out to any range, and see invisibility

For comparison, a 3rd-level, raging Strength 24, greatsword-swinging barbarian would have an attack bonus of 3 BAB + 7 Strength modifier + 1 masterwork - 1 Power Attack = +10 vs. normal AC (not much worse than +7 vs. touch AC) with a 19-20 critical threat range, but deal only 2d6+13 (average 20) damage.
A Narikopolus + Precise Shot + Rapid Shot archer can hardly compete with this avowed either.
The barbarian and archer also lack utility.

Overcharge Modulation needs to change.

>> No.51878595 [DELETED] 


The build in >>51878515 significantly outclasses some of the better 3rd-level damage dealers that Paizo classes have to offer, *and* has more utility thanks to being able to max out Dexterity and having the Hidden Knowledge and Sightseer clauses.

Given that the avowed's point of balance is supposed to be "Paizo + Avowed 1 + Avowed 2" only, as per developer commentary, this is a little concerning.

>> No.51878603

I agree overcharge needs changing.

Nation has janky mechanics but I don't see it as too bad even if you just got all the bonuses against everyone all the time.

Self pact might be too strong, I'm not super sure where it stands without overcharge modulation, still likely on the dangerous side.

If Sightseer is not to one's liking, it can be swapped out for Silver Tongue, for a +6 bonus to Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate checks.

>> No.51878711

You're specifically taking the class feature substitutions that are focused on damage, with feats focused on damage, and relying on a single shape that lets you mimic a ranged weapon. Of course you're going to be good at blasting with it.
The only issue I can see is that either overcharge needs to be changed, or the class substitutions changed, possibly both. That is kind of the point of a playtest like this.
A single build does not invalidate an entire class, otherwise why aren't you playing a wizard right now, or collecting candles of invocation with your peasant wages?

>> No.51878747


Even without Overcharge Modulation, the build in >>51878559 would still give a Strength 24 raging greatsword barbarian or a Narikopolus archer a run for their metaphorical money.


>Of course you're going to be good at blasting with it.
>The only issue I can see is that either overcharge needs to be changed
Even *without* Overcharge Modulation, the build still outpaces some of Paizo's better 3rd-level damage dealers, while having far better noncombat utility on top. That does not seem very balanced to me.

>A single build does not invalidate an entire class
On the other hand, the class being pushed towards gaining multiple attacks and abusing Overcharge Modulation makes raw damage the single best combat method of the class.

>> No.51878786


Here is the same build above, only without Overcharge Modulation. Tiefling is somewhat more optimal for this build (Small size, Underworld Guide, another +2 Intelligence), but for the sake of demonstration, we will keep to human.

No self pact, no nation pact, no Overcharge Modulation, absolutely must be human.

Level: 3rd
Race: Human
Class: Avowed (undead [lich] pact, balefire infusion, aether blow)

Key Ability Score: Dexterity 20 = base 18 + 2 racial

Key Traits:
Combat: Reactionary
Social: Student of Philosophy
Possibly another trait with a drawback

Human: Point Blank Shot
1st-level: Weapon Focus (aether pulse)
Avowed: Precise Shot
3rd-level: Improved Initiative

Shapes: Aether barrage ×3

Lesser Clauses: Hidden knowledge, sightseer, lifeleech pulse

5 Dexterity modifier
+2 Reactionary
+4 Improved Initiative
Total: +11

Aether Barrage Attacks:
1 attack from BAB
1 attack from aether barrage's second purchase
Total Attacks: 2

Range: 100 feet + 30 feet from caster level = 130 feet

Aether Barrage Attack Bonus:
+5 Dexterity modifier
+1 Weapon Focus
Total: +8/+8, targets touch AC

Aether Barrage Damage:
2d8 aether pulse
+5 Dexterity modifier
Total: 2d8+5 (average 14), can grant temporary hit points

Initiative +11. Two 130-foot-range attacks at a +8 bonus, targeting touch AC and dealing 14 damage each (for a total of 28 if they both hit). These attacks can grant temporary hit points. This is still superior to the Strength 24 raging greatsword barbarian, and it is also superior to the Noble Scion (Narikopolus) + Precise Shot + Rapid Shot archer, even before we bring in the noncombat utility.

The character's noncombat utility includes:
• Hidden knowledge: +6 bonus to all Knowledge checks, and using Knowledges untrained
• Sightseer: See perfectly in any darkness out to any range, and see invisibility (swap this out for Silver Tongue if desired)

The avowed is still quite an outlier even with the restrictions above.

>> No.51878800

I'm okay with this, and if anything it means that paizo has yet again dropped the ball when it comes to character options.

Fey Obedience (Magdh) is absolutely a mistake that should never have been printed in its current state.

I am not entirely sure behind your logic here; are you saying that a 3rd-level, Strength 24, raging greatsword barbarian's damage output is insufficient? The 3rd-level avowed without the nation pact, without the self pact, without Overcharge Modulation, and without any race other than human is already outclassing such a barbarian.

Depends entirely on the adventure. The thing is most stuff written by Paizo does not see much playtesting and ends ups going up and down in difficulty quite a bit.

>> No.51880471

Okay, most times? If they're "optimized" to any degree, pretty well. But that assumes that they've got some decent healing, good damage output, ranged support, etc.

If they're all just initiators flailing away with broken blade, they're gonna get fucked by the first thing to stand up to their damage.

Of course, sometimes there are encounters that are just idiotic. Encounters that rely on the one item you might or might not have picked up earlier in the module to have any chance at winning (true story, my old party got wiped because the item-hoarder had stuffed the cold-soaking item in his bag of holding and forgot to tell us). Or encounters that require a specific kind of spell or effect to be used. Gimmick fights, you know.

It's not an exact science, since Paizo's encounter design is so schizophrenic.

>they're gonna get fucked by the first thing to stand up to their damage.


>> No.51880634

Okay, perhaps "stand up to" is a poor choice of words. But think of it this way: An optimized ranged combatant isn't going to be much good if nobody can pinpoint an invisible enemy. An optimized melee combatant is screwed if the enemy can fly and he can't. If the GM starts having a ghost move in and out of the ground, you're gonna have a bad time--more so if it has Spring Attack or Flyby Attack.

There are just some things the party might not be equipped to deal with. A GM who's committed to running a fair game, progressing the story, or at least competent enough to modify a module to fit a group, is going to mitigate this problem, but it's still a problem with the module. Therefore, it's better to be prepared for situations that don't rely on one build's ability to clean house.

>> No.51880674

There's not much to "understand". Maneuvers are functionally spells that all rely on attacks or skill checks, and instead of waiting all day you can just take a quick break between encounters to regain your daily uses (or just a round or two if you have some feat or class ability that lets you do so).

It's just weeaboo fightan magic, except less weeaboo. A surprisingly large amount of the maneuvers are just "I'm like a monk/barbarian/paladin but..." rather than anime style secret techniques or some shit.

Second Avowed writer here. While we're currently discussing our options on what to do with Overcharge Modulation, Self Pact's preliminary nerfs (we WILL be playtesting this more) are a change to make the damage dealt by the bonus attacks entirely static (though scaling with level). They'll trigger non-damaging effects, but neither benefit from bonus damage or additional damage sources (so they can't trigger Sneak Attack, for example.) This should make it easier to tune, while still having some interesting optimization benefits.
Further, like with a lot of OTHER attunements, we'll be making theirs scale with their level, though not quite as harshly. Their charisma bonus to armor class will be capped at 3+class level, meaning they'll grant a similar bonus as someone in light armor should it be a one-level dip, while rapidly providing their full benefit to someone who decides to take more levels.
While we're presently still working on it, Aether Channel's second-rank selection is being removed and replaced with a different effect. Their DPR with full base attack bonus was simply too strong, and we'll be reworking the ability.

In other news, we'll soon be bringing two new shapes to the Avowed 2 playtest - the all-new Aether Circus, which fires extremely long range missiles that track their target over several rounds, and Aether Beast, for those who would prefer to stand back and have their loyal minion do all the work.

Yeah; don't forget some of the builds 2hu outlined are at the far reaches of what one can manage, reaching not so much the ceiling tiles as the baseboards of the attic.

Overcharge probably has to go; not anywhere near so much due to a completely optimized choice allowing the static to be x1.5'd, but because damage on certain abilities like barrage or most AoEs is only viable with it.

Bake a damage increase into the non-weapon-loaded pulses (barrage, swarm, wave, wrath, blast, etc etc): this does not mean they should be cheaper/easier than the weapon types, only that they MUST have appropriate support so that as-much or near-as-much can allow proper output.

The new aether circus sounds like it's finally going to be worthy of its name; the previous incarnation was heresy.
