Pathfinder General /pfg/

When Starfinder's prerelease book comes out soon, should /pfg/ split into /pfg/ and /sfg/ or stick together as one general? What do you guys think?

It was already discussed on a few threads. While some would prefer seperate threads, the majority would prefer them to stand under the pathfinder general. Mostly because otherwise the community would be too spread out, and end up with two dead generals. Along with them being related enough that they are essentially the same game anyways.

53074442

I have been trying to run a Spheres of Might playtest game.

It has been fraught with many delays from scheduling concerns and the playtest documents rapidly changing on us. We hosted our first session last Friday, even though there was no combat, and we are slated to continue on the 12th and every Friday thereafter weekly.

The idea was to gather as much playtest data as possible so as to assist the Spheres of Might developers.

However, we are faced with a major impasse. The Spheres of Might developers in the forums have announced that the martial focus mechanic will be discarded entirely, which is a titanic change that upheaves the entirety of Spheres of Might, since the current metagame of spheremighters revolves around rapidly expending and regaining martial focus.

A less ground-shaking, though still significant, change they have announced is a rewrite of the sphere-specific drawbacks mechanic. Since many optimized builds are grounded in the use and abuse of such drawbacks, this will force a rewrite of most characters who were employing drawbacks.

We do not know how long it will take for the Spheres of Might writers to make public the total overhaul of the martial focus mechanic and the sphere-specific drawbacks.

This is problematic for my playtest, because it means that all of my group's playtest data will be completely irrelevant if it still uses martial focus and sphere-specific drawbacks in their current state.

What should we do? Should we simply carry on and play regardless, even if it means our playtest data is worthless? Should we place the game on hold until the Spheres of Might developers undertake the arduous task of rewriting both martial focus and sphere-specific drawbacks?

The GM was a super cool guy too, he scattered codes and puzzles throughout the sessions for us to decrypt during downtime, which linked us to videos he'd made that hid pieces of lore trivia, and spoilers for the next sessions. It was basically perfect, then... nothing, it all went up in smoke.

Summary of PLD today:
>"Vult has no time for comfy: turns out while Cashmere was RPing getting out of the bath, getting dressed, and making sure Lysander and Bonbon don't peek, the Tome Awakening happened off screen and now the whole mansion is swallowed in darkness and they have to fight their way out without knowing what's going on"

A "comfy" game where we were courtiers for a minor noble house.

That's in quotes because the first session, and about half of the second session was comfy, but the rest was body horror, despair, and eldritch madness. My vigilante had to hold down another PC while she watched her twin brother (yet another PC) ripped apart by wild dogs. If I had let her go, she would have revealed our position and gotten everyone else killed.

It was brutal and creepy in the best possible way. Buuuut the rest of the players threw a bitch fit, and the GM bailed.

A concealed individual simply is untargetable until they make an attack roll or break stealth.

Rank 15 skill unlock for stealth will allow for no Dex to AC.

However, a rogue attacking an unaware target in the surprise round and before his first turn in initiative will deny Dex bonus to AC. If a rogue approaches an enemy in stealth and attacks, if this is the start of combat, he will deny dex to AC.

"Uncanny dodge":
>Starting at 4th level, a rogue can react to danger before her senses would normally allow her to do so. She cannot be caught flat-footed, nor does she lose her Dex bonus to AC if the attacker is invisible. She still loses her Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. A rogue with this ability can still lose her Dexterity bonus to AC if an opponent successfully uses the feint action (see Combat) against her.

>Does a rogue lose dex if caught unaware (flat footed) in the surprise round?
No. A rogue cannot be caught flat footed, therefore does not lose dex to AC.

>Does a rogue lose dex if blinded?
RAW: Yes. Uncanny dodge only applies when the attacker is invisible, not when the defender is blind. However your GM may choose to houserule this that uncanny dodge applies and you do not lose dex to dodge if blinded.

The biggest issue with Spheres of Might is the lack of NON-COMBAT utility talents. As it is right now, if you want out of combat utility, you are kind of forced into playing a scholar or a technician (and even then, you are almost always better off playing a spherecaster).

I personally dont have an issue with the combat aspects of the SoM system, but without utility, you aren't really raising the tier of martials.

Consider virtually every half-caster in the game, whose noncombat spells are high-impact enough (e.g. detect magic, disguise self, invisibility, suggestion) that people are actually enticed to select such spells alongside more combat-oriented spells.

In contrast, Spheres of Might makes the noncombat talents low-impact, so you wind up with this scenario:

Fencing:
>Master of Misdirection: You gain ranks in Bluff equal to your Hit Dice. Whenever you gain a Hit Die (such as when gaining a level), you gain a rank in this skill. If you possess ranks in Bluff already, you may immediately retrain them at no cost.
>Read Foe: You have learned to read the subtle cues of your enemy. You gain ranks in the Sense Motive skill equal to your Hit Dice. Whenever you gain a Hit Die (such as when gaining a level), you gain a rank in this skill. If you possess ranks in Sense Motive already, you may immediately retrain them at no cost.
"More skill ranks? Meh."

Boxing:
>While outside of combat, whenever a creature makes a Bluff check against you while speaking, you can make a Bluff, Diplomacy, Intimidate, or Sense Motive check opposed by their Bluff check; upon making a successful opposed check, you can force them to either tell the truth (as far as they know) about the subject or take a -5 on Charisma-based skill and ability checks (this includes Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate, even if the target uses an alternate ability score to determine their bonuses with these skills) against everyone who listened to them speak for 1 day.
"Very cool! But my class is [armiger/blacksmith/conscript/striker], and my mental ability scores are not that high..."

Equipment, legendary:
>Oversized Weapons: You may wield weapons sized for creatures 1 size larger than yourself with no penalty, may treat two handed weapons of your normal size as one-handed weapons, and may treat one-handed weapons of your normal size as light weapons.
"Now this is what I will take for 3d6 damage two-handers!"

While utility talents do exist, a number of them require investment in spheres that conflicts with their build choice.
