>Your first lesson was how to fall; your fourth lesson is how to not. Your intense training has given you the ability to climb the very air, grasping the world with your hands and kicking off with your feet.

>By spending a move action, you gain the ability to make a number of leaps through the air this turn equal to 1/2 your ranks in the Climb skill. Making a leap is a free action, and each leap moves you up to 10 feet in any direction (unlike with a fly speed, you neither gain nor lose distance for moving vertically in this way). You need not jump off of a physical object; you can leap off the air through sheer power and skill. If you end your turn with leaps remaining, these leaps are expended, and you remain hovering in the air until your next turn (at which point you fall unless you must spend another move action to gain leaps). Otherwise, you fall. This movement provokes attacks of opportunity as normal.
>If you initiate a maneuver or use an ability that would allow you to move a distance equal to or greater than your land speed (such as windmill waltz flurry or a strike that includes a charge attack), you may gain leaps as if you had spent a move action rather than making that movement. You still gain any other benefits or penalties from the ability in question (such as a charge attack’s bonus on attack rolls and penalty to AC).

Christ, she's not firing arrows out of that bow, she's launching fucking javelins!

Lock was a simple idea that suffered from two problems
1) People keep comparing it to grapple - which it brought on itself with its initial Grasp fluff, and the very fact it's a backport of 5e grapple
2) It needed to have a lot of extra caveats added to it to let it work with PF balance as opposed to 5e balance, and these built up until it wasn't a simple idea anymore.

The thing to realise about Lock is that it isn't an offensive debuff: it's a battlefield control and tanking debuff, something to hold foes down and stop them from going after the more fragile members of your party. It will not help you kill them any faster or any easier, unless their main defense is mobility.

The other problem with fools errand is that it's not anti-caster or caster-emulating despite its fluff so much as anti-initiator. It's a hard counter to a lot of maneuvers, and is a heavy-handed screw-you in the wake of all the "no this HAS to be supernatural" on other disciplines. Some of the supernaturallness was already kinda iffy, but this really takes the cake.

"No, you can't counterhit with this discipline without it automatically being blocked in an AMF or the like because it's a supernatural discipline so your being fast is automatically magic. Yes you can absolutely teleport as EX with this other discipline while also negating freedom of movement because being fast and teleporting isn't automatically magic."

As annoying as some of the Su was in earlier disciplines at least it was consistent. Fools Errand existing means the errata has to go back and make similar abilities non-supernatural in a few cases.

>something to hold foes down and stop them from going after the more fragile members of your party.
The problem is that it's pretty easy to stop them from going against *you* as well. If you get a casting of Enlarge Person and Grapple someone, you can grapple them from up to 10 feet away and they automatically move adjacent to you and get debuffed, but it doesn't completely negate their ability to attack since at the very least they can punch you. It even still works for strikes and the like. So it keeps them from attacking your less tanky allies, but still lets them act.

On the other hand, if you Lock a target 10 feet away from you, if they don't have reach then they literally cannot do anything. They can't move away or towards you, they can't attack, and if they can't break the lock they're effectively taken out of combat permanently as long as nobody's dumb enough to move next to them. Unless it's changed, Lock doesn't have a max lock number either, so grab a whip and threaten a 30 foot zone to stop anything from doing anything in that area.

And then, while grappling actually does something against ranged and casting characters, Lock does *nothing* to them beyond the fact that they're in your range.

Lock is not meant to be a grapple replacement.
You're complaining about it sometimes being too strong compared to grapple, and sometimes too weak, when it's just meant to be a /different thing/.

>So it keeps them from attacking your less tanky allies, but still lets them act.
>What is the pinned condition, which is the natural step every grapple focused build moves on to next, and can pull off in the same round with Greater Grapple

>They can't move away or towards you, they can't attack, and if they can't break the lock they're effectively taken out of combat permanently as long as nobody's dumb enough to move next to them.
That's a huge if.

You literally get at least one save to get out of the Lock every turn even if you stand still and do nothing.
Trying a 5ft step and two move actions on their turn gives them three attempts to escape. Unless the person locking you is way out of your league, you are not going to spend the whole battle stuck.

There are also very few ways to lock an opponent that isn't adjacent to you. There are exactly three strikes in the whole discipline that let you use reach to lock something, all others specify you must target an adjacent foe.

>And then, while grappling actually does something against ranged and casting characters, Lock does *nothing* to them beyond the fact that they're in your range.
Just like how Stagger shuts down martial full attackers but casters don't care?
Plus, keeping them in your reach puts them in your AoO range for casting or shooting, which is a deterrent - and you're totally underestimating the strength of keeping them in your reach, when the caster and archers' main defenses are staying /out/ of melee.

There was a guy in early playtest fully convinced that making it Ex over Su was a huge advantage because antimagic fields were apparently a standard threat.

>some of the arguments/explanations for why it HAS to remain crap was that it wasn't magical

These were bad arguments and Piercing Thunder, and to a lesser extent Tempest Gale, were the two disappointments of PoW:E.
Fool's Errand was them realizing that they made a mistake, and nonmagic disciplines should get fun things too.

I don't see why that's bad.

(The secondary problem with Tempest Gale is that it was very hard to make anything be worth using over ranged full attacks without being either the same or flat out better. I think there were ways they didn't take that could have worked around this, but the idea the only reason it was bad was because it was held down by the fluff of Ex is the sort of awful thinking you'd expect from Paizo)

Tempest Gale, despite being worse than full attacks, is still cool and useful. Piercing Thunder is rarely cool until higher levels, and even less useful.

Its stances are also incredibly underwhelming. I mean really, being able to dual wield a weapon as a 3rd level stance? Tying an entire build path to a stance is just retarded.

>> No.51898638

Maybe the thought process changed, but it's certainly the kind of thing that would deserve new versions or alternatives. Or at least an admission of having been in the incorrect. Piercing Thunder's another good example there you're right.

Actually, the "full attacks" matter has been a problem from the start with PoW, mostly because of the vastly insufficient value of a majority of strikes, compounded with an incompatibility with vital strike.

>This comes with a debuff and I can finish it off next turn or someone else does the other half with these advantages this turn
Is fine

>Well, maybe a quarter of its health, and generally no more accurate than any of your bonus attacks+first iterative (as in haste and your highest attack) either
Led to, well, what we have now; everyone using the full attack maneuvers or just boosting an actual full attack... ranged or otherwise.

This isn't the first time I've brought it up, but my DM is having us use monster classes for Reign of Winter, so I'm playing a solar dragon named Vivexathurnkear (although some people call her Sunny, which really annoys her). She hates the cold, which means this AP will suck for her. But she's also a paladin, and I really like the motif of the radiant sun for a holy warrior and it's extra-fitting for an AP where you're fighting against a frozen evil. She's just a little hatchling now, but it'll be so awesome when she's older and bigger- she probably fantasizes about how cool she'll look. There's a lot for her to learn about being a paladin and even being an adventurer in general, and I'm looking forward to hear learning the hard way that it's not all fun and games. She's got her adoptive parents (the other two PCs) traveling with her, though.

Oh yeah, and although the party hasn't crossed paths with it yet, in the campaign I run IRL there's a brine dragon they'll be meeting later. She's actually a part of the Golarion setting, named Rezlarabren. She's unexpected cute!

This sounds like it was a lot of fun, so make sure you keep sharing storytime after future sessions! That Amulet of Heart's Desire is neat, it's seems like it would be obvious but making everybody think of what their character's greatest desire is (if they haven't already) seems like a good way to make people think about their characters.

Ok, /pfg/, in the latest session the party finished leveling-up and had recently hit Mythic 4, and I may need a second opinion on Path abilities: Originally I was considering taking Mirror Dodge for a long time, but I already have a solid panic button in the form of Emergency Force Sphere. Other options on the table are Abundant Casting and Competent Caster, the former adding the nonsense of letting single-target spells target many while the latter grants a line of defense against being grappled and bound. Alternatively I've been considering Spell Sieve since Elsbeth already has Flexible Counterspell.

Golds are proper ladies (ojou-sama) or studious class president types. You'd expect them to take charge and look damn good doing it.

Mirror Dodge does seem solid, but if you already have Emergency Force Spheres, you probably won't need it often enough to justify taking it with one of your few path abilities. I don't know what your build is like (other than obviously Archmage), but just weighing the other options you're looking at, I'd probably skip on Competent Caster. In my general experience I haven't had a lot of trouble with concentration checks, and although that'd be helpful sometimes you presumably have a pretty solid bonus to those rolls and can surge if you ever really needed to make sure you succeed. Plus, Competent Caster doesn't even apply to your highest level spells, the ones you'd be most likely to fail concentration checks for! Abundant Casting looks great, I'm personally a big fan of the abilities that let you cast spells better than normal- I had Faith's Reach on a Heirophant character to be able to cast all divine touch spells as if they had 30ft range and it was pretty great. I think Abundant Casting won't make as much of a difference for you as Faith's Reach did for me, but I still generally endorse stuff like that as long as you can think of at least a few spells that will benefit greatly from it. Regarding Spell Sieve... It really depends on how often you're counterspelling. If you do it very frequently, it could be useful, but still only when you're countering a spell you actually want to spend an action to cast yourself.

As for my games, I've told /pfg/ about my Reign of Winter solar dragon paladin game already, so I'll talk about the game I run IRL. Take a low CHA-, combat specced party, and then put them in an episode of intrigue and diplomacy. That's what I did, and it was very fun to watch them bumble around. They know who they're after, but they don't know how to prove she's guilty, and things got more complicated when a third party showed up to make a mess of everything with a terrorist attack. Also the party's kobold is suddenly missing.

Anon, you don't have to play an actual, honest to goodness dragon.

You could play a dragon-blooded human! Now, I've got a concept I'm going to apply with, but since I want to see people happy I'm going to crack open my special stock of secondary concepts I had planned for this campaign

>You are the child of Choral the Conqueror, or at least a direct descendant. This technically makes you a Rogarvian, and means the throne of Brevoy is yours
>You are a famous pro wrestler from Taldor, caught in a sandstorm during a tour in Osirion. You nearly die, but a hyper-voluptuous woman saves your life, whisking you away to a strange land where the only thing expected of you is to be the woman's lover and personal stud

>> No.51899741

I was actually going for a Tiefling. Dragon-blooded, of course. It's just picking the classes, backstory and etc. Though I'm leaning towards Psychic Warrior, cause I hate myself that much. Not sure what to gestalt it with though.

>> No.51899785


This doesn't help me decide, but makes it harder!

Maybe this will help. My character will have means of emulating a dragon's breath attack because class/backstory reasons. Character is also a theatrically themed character that has met and befriended a dragon (the dragon interacted with the town the character lived in quite often), which is where he gets the emulated breath weapon from.

Cult dedicated to a red dragon comes in, kills the dragon, decimates town. Character ends up with the burned drawback (+1 trait). Issue is, I'm leaning towards brass dragon because I feel like their social aspect is more thematically fitting for my character, however brass dragons breathe fire and it'd be weird for my character to have the burned drawback and also breathe fire, unless I flavor it that my character feels uncomfortable with his own fire or feels comfortable with fire he controls himself, just not other fire.

Crusader participating in the World Wound crusades. Family has been crusaders for generations, the helmet is the same one his grandfather and great grandfathers wore. He's a Mendev native and was trained since young to participate in the crusades. His helmet and sword were lost when his grandfather died, if I get into the game I'm gonna see if my GM is ok with me recovering them and taking Additional Traits for an Heirloom Weapon and the Helmet.

I am posting again for thoughts. I apologize for posting in multiple threads.

I require opinions on race lore. I do not have many races in my setting, but I will go over a few here for thoughts:

The separate goblinoid creatures are not in fact different species, instead they form a greater single species. In this case goblins are infertile males, hobgoblins fertile males, and bugbears females. Their clans end up strictly matriarchal with a bugbear at its head. When giving birth to a litter generally one child will grow to a hobgoblin, if two do so both hobgoblins will likely be runts among their kind. Hobgoblins practice rampant homosexuality due to their pathological need to mate where as bugbears only become fertile at certain times of the year, this varies from bugbear to bugbear and depends on when they were born. Bugbears can actually choose when to give birth to a new female, and will often send one with several hobgoblins and goblins to be established as a sister clan. This creates vast networks of allied clans stemming from single Bugbears. Bugbears, opposed to goblins and hobgoblins are far longer lived, some reaching as old as two hundred. Goblins, the infertile males, are generally subservient to their larger fertile brothers, but only to a point. However both hobgoblins and goblins will religiously follow the orders of their Bugbear mother or current clan head, this is due to pheromones the bugbear produces. She will often cut portions of her hair off and give it to her servants, these hair soaked in pheromone oil she excretes, and will keep them subservient while away. Goblinoids away from a bugbear for a long periods of time, without such baubles, will grow to realize their subservience.

Seems legit.

Dwarven kind's "lust for gold" is quite literal. Dwarves have no sexes and are a single monolithic species. They are not born, and instead are built. An individual or a community will carve a new dwarf out of metal, stone, or gem and set them life using often poorly understood old rituals. One's material will often decide one's caste throughout life. Dwarven rich will carve their children of gold and gems, this creates a luxury for the rich of having a child as they can afford to pay for the materials of a child alone. Clans and communities otherwise will often come together to pool resources when creating a new dwarf. This is why clans exist, groups who come together to finance new dwarves as well as 'children of the community' where the new dwarf's 'parents' is every member of a town who pitched in. Dwarves will often be created for specific tasks, when new workers or soldiers are required. Dwarven society has strong laws detailing how a new child must pay off the worth of their body to their creator. The poorest of dwarves can be made of materials like brick, slate, or even concrete. These urban poor dwarves are seen as disgusting creatures by their brethren often, and such dwarves are most common among populations living outside of dwarven territory. Rich dwarves seldom travel due to the inherent wealth of their bodies. Even if they carry no riches a golden dwarf represents half a ton of gold to the would be highway man. Using a dwarf's body after death is sacrilege, and dead dwarves are enshrined in their base parts. Old dwarven clans will have bars and vaults full of gems harvested from their ancestors. Dwarves however have no natural maximum lifespan and dwarven death only comes in the form of dwarves who died in violence, accidents, or of diseases that effect their kind.

So how does this interact with the first group?

Trolls I have changed completely from being a form of giant to instead being a native outsider. Their existence is intrinsically linked to that of intelligent races. Trolls come into existence when a structure or place modified by humanoids is left for an extended period of time. The most obvious example would be that of an abandoned bridge. A troll will naturally form on this abandoned bridge and essentially be site bound to it. A troll is an extension of the structure it inhabits. A troll's toll, as it is referred to, is the payment a troll demands for using the structure it is a part of. These tolls are often confusing to a normal humanoid. Trolls with pathologically attempt to increase the structure and gaudiness of what ever structure they inhabit, a troll bridge, over a few decades, becoming a massive structure. Trolls are influenced by the land they were birthed from. Stone, river, sand, etc. trolls exist depending on the landscape their home structure exists in. Abandoned towns and cities do not stay abandoned for long as trolls will come into being inside them. Trolls grows more powerful as their structure does, when two trolls come into conflict most often one will kill the other and then deconstruct the other troll's site for building material. An abandoned city left to itself will end with a single massive citadel constructed by the surviving troll, who will have changed into a powerful being due to his massive home.

Also I want to emphasize trolls are not meant to be playable. They're just around.

Is there any rule that prevents me from carrying around a pitcher full of potions? The physical description says they're about one fluid ounce each, so a pretty standard 2-gallon pitcher could hold 256 doses of potions of CLW. I'm not trying to drink more than one dose a round like this, and for the sake of simplicity let's say all the potions are identical.

>> No.51902493

Apparently the two games are going to be canon with each other.

>> No.51902518

Also last time I got someone worried that the trolls were too one dimensional if every time you go to an abandoned town there is a troll at the center. The idea is a lot of the time this doesn't happen because when trolls arise they keep doing so. An abandoned town rarely hits the point of a single surviving super trolls. Any trolls that gets a large territory often ends up dying of some cause, other trolls or adventurers, and having them homes dismantled. One things trolls are capable of is working together to try and scrounge building material. This is more often moving rocks too large for singular trolls, but can be trolls ganging up on a stronger troll and dividing up his territory's resources. However these trolls after the job is done and once things are divided will inevitably come into conflict with one another.

>Dwarves make themselves out of earth or are otherwise literally made of earth

I liked it the last time I saw it on /tg/, I liked it in WoW, I like it here. The true children of stone have my approval.

As for these Trolls, I like that they have a means of getting stronger like that. Means they can be used at just about any level of play, seems like.

Good on ya!

Dragons are not born from other dragons and have no line of inheritance. Instead how a dragon comes into existence is when there is a particularly wicked mortal. When that mortal dies their heart becomes an egg and eventually hatches into a dragon. Dragons are odd in that they have no inherent sapience. A dragon when it is first born can not speak or think, and will repeat, like a mockingbird, the first sounds it hears. Dragons then begin to repeat and imitate things they see. As time goes on they see and experience more things and begin to respond to situations with a larger variety of responses, but at their core dragons are a creature devoid of all creativity. The hoarding instinct of dragons is most often associated with a need to gather knowledge to fuel their ability to respond, a dragon once given the concept that it requires information to form responses, as they can not conceive of it themselves, will begin to act on it via gathering. Dragons as they garner information grow larger. A several century old dragon is essentially indistinguishable from a creature with creativity due to the wealth of knowledge it has accumulated for responses. Slavery, hoarding, and research are what dragons attempt most often. They will often keep mortals to help make inductive leaps they are incapable of and as such each dragon will inevitably have worshipers or partners to assist them in their growth.

Man how do dragons survive past infancy?

It's an interesting take on dragons. Not my favorite (I prefer them being the pinnacle of Material Plane-native life, and therefore the closest things to gods it can produce on its own), but it's certainly nothing I've seen before.

>> No.51902650

The moment something attacks them they have a violent response to attack back. Dragons, even if devoid of the ability to think creatively, are highly dangerous.

Most often they begin life by first sitting in one spot and observing, and then hiding once they see something to conceptualize it.

However, most dragons do die in infancy, only one in a thousand get large enough to be able to matter.

Also people who purposefully raise dragons exist as you can control their ability to respond by only giving them certain information.
