Some Thassilonian ruins, more Thassilonian ruins, other Thassilonian ruins, some extra Thassilonian ruins, an extra dimensional Thassilonian ruins and a golden city which is now Thassilonian ruins. We have faced wizards, wizards, wizards, wizards, wizards and I am going to guess we will in the end face at least one more wizard. Also giants. As for traps we had magical wizard traps, magical wizard traps, magical wizard traps, magical wizard traps, magical wizard traps and not any traps yet, but I am going to assume magical wizard traps.

Vitalists are better.
Oracles, much like Clerics, get far far greater mileage out of their spells by NOT healing.

See, you can't really outheal shit in this game without some very specific, very special builds. This is compounded by the fact that Cure Serious Wounds does nothing if the fighter got crit clean *past* the negatives. It would be a lot better if he hadn't died, instead.

But, defenses? miss chances? battlefield control? dead enemies?

All of those drastically reduce the amount of damage your friends take, making healing a far easier and cheaper proposition after the fact.

An evil cleric of calistria uses a magic scepter to mind control all the local villages women into becoming his unwilling brides.

all nonlethal past your maximum HP overflows into lethal.

Say you have 50HP. You can take 50 nonlethal. If you had 40 left due to wounds, you're unconscious after just taking 40 nonlethal, but only after 50 do you start taking lethal. You eventually will die.

Creatures with regeneration simply continue gaining nonlethal, not turning it lethal. However, should regeneration be shut down at any moment, They might die or explode into a bloody mist from too much nonlethal converting on the spot.

>> No.53161074

So you can take a total of 100 nonlethal if you have 50 HP, am I reading this right? Or you can take 50 nonlethal and 50+CON nonlethal before you die?

>> No.53161092

You can take 50 nonlethal. Anything past that becomes lethal.

So if someone with 50 max HP takes 75 lethal, he's at -25 with nonlethal and thus unconscious, but he's also at 25/50 on his real HP (like if the nonlethal heals up from the 'sleep' and he wakes up).

So 100 nonlethal puts him at 0 for real. 100+CON nonlethal will kill you, unless you have regeneration.

If you have regeneration, and you've taken 300 nonlethal, you're unconscious for a damn long time. However if someone did, say, 1 point of fire damage and your regen shuts down from fire it's not "Being at -301" that does you in, but the fact that your real HP TRULY just attained -256

Was a 4e character, but he was Sir Rodrick Artosh, the Undying

His backstory was that he was one of the only survivors of the bloodiest siege in living memory. Neither side got the advantage after the walls fell so they just kept killing and killing till only a few dozen remained. He says he saw the reaper himself as he lay there, bleeding under the sun, and spat in his face. He ended up in a temple to recover, where instead of funding inner peace, he found himself tormented with the fear of his own mortality, reminded of it every day by the scars on his chest. So he began training, and dueling, and crushing everyone who would fight him to prove his own strength.

If the game had continued, he would have begun amassing magic items to immunize him against the subtle threats, to guard himself on the path to godhood.

Absolute barrel of fun to demand the orc warchief duel you one on one. If 4e had had any semblence of balance for 1v1 fights, I would have won too. I was level 4 I think, and dealt about two hundred damage in three turns to him, and only bloodied him before he crushed me.

>Eoxian starship designs reflect their builders’ unique needs and aesthetics. Most Eoxian ships resemble elaborate bone structures or the corpses of vast creatures, though this is partially an illusion, as much of the bone is actually more advanced materials sculpted into their morbid shapes. Such ships are designed specifically for the undead, with large portions of the hull left open to space, no galleys or heads, and tight-packed workstations in which the crew might be expected to stand at their posts for weeks without moving. All of this makes Eoxian ships extremely difficult to take down in combat, and this is particularly of the massive Thaumtech Omenbringer illustrated here, a carrier ship loaded with squadrons of nimble necrogliders.

In that case: It's a calistrian protected by an army of mooks. Assuming that this isn't a plot village their levels will average at 3 or so. I would just bullrush/overrun through them and go for a good old fashioned Grand Theft Auto Return Policy on the cleric.

Then several tactics there, Anon

1. One of us has a skill or competence applicable to solve this
2. I will pretend to accept his offer and leave. Then I'll come back more prepared when he isn't expecting it.
3. I will blast through to him. This is typical evil logic to believe being good means you're a pansy and therefore you can get away with such garbage blackmail. Innocents are bound to die, but I'm confident enough in my cause and humble enough in my pride to accept this. They will learn not to do that and next time they'll find other methods that aren't hiding behind others.

If you're building the encounter I can also recommend my own plan for enemies that wear hostages. If an attack misses by less than 5, there's a 50% chance to hit the hostage. Flanking them reduces this to 20%. Unless they have more hostages than just one in front, but might save that situation for later.

If you can't be consistent enough to obey the laws of physics you're an autist that can't build a world.

>> No.53162014

It's a start.

The problem is the spell list.

Wiz/SOrc was not designed to have reduced progression, you get some things way too late and some things things that you get you would never use due to the cost.

The issue is similar for the warpriest, but the warpriest gets other things to make up for it, as well as having most of the good cleric self-buffs be first or second level spells.

I think that you just need to re-work the magus class entirely.

I'm not sure if it needs it's own spell list or a different spell progression. Maybe it gets a pool of spells it casts like a sorcerer and can cast some other spells like a wizard.

No, what I mean is, if you make rules, they have to be consistent.

You either have everyone with giant swords or you don't bother making additional rules for "dex-based swords".

Swordplay is not something you can invent. Nobody swings his weapon like a retard leaving himself exposed. Swordplay has always been about dexterity, in fact where the strong people went was in archery, where they took only the tallest and the strongest.

And all that, you can't invent, because it's based on common sense. Even if the rules were about giant swords, I wouldn't swing mine around if I could do a much quicker move and stab through your heart with it.

That part about dexterity reminds me of that one sword style from a wuxia novel. It was called Nine Swords of Dugu, and was pretty awesome. Not only was it speed based, the characteristic of said swordplay was that every move was unique to the user but it always involved winning out on trades. That is to say, visually it'd look like it'd result in a mutual kill but the one using Nine Swords of Dugu would always land their strike first.

I'm making a halfling bard and I want some advice.
Should I give him a shortbow or a starknife with the way of the shooting star divine fighting technique?
The bow one can attack more more reliably because of rapid shot and many shot and it'll have longer range, but the starknife will be much more SAD with charisma, a little more accurate, and so a good deal more damage.

At the risk of sounding like I approve of what Paizo's doing, FTL taking a trip through Hell has been a common enough trope in Science-Fiction.

Black Tentacles, Confusion, Enervation on nonundead, Crushing Despair + Misfortune was obnoxious one time but admittedly I rolled very badly to resist.

Early on, the usual suspects with Obscuring Mist, Ray of Enfeeblement, thry mostly stuck to support and hiding though. 3rd and onward was Glitterdust soam, Ray of Exhaustion. Tried Web once but failed miserably.

Out of combat? Less of an issue. Scry in particular has been useful for them.

But in general I do not like having to tailor every combat so there is an enemy spellcaster around to aggressively dispel and counter debuff the party. Nor do I like the idea of throwing shit like say, a room full of greater invisible'd succubi who immeduately go for the back ranks with level drain grapples. Comes off as less fun and more antagonistic.

I'm currently in the process of planning a game and coming up with a few house rules for 'healer' type alternatives. I know healing is a hot garbage way of spending your actions so my idea is to add something that allows certain classes/archetypes to provide some healing whilst also doing something else or spending swift/move actions to be able to do something.

At the moment, I'm looking at changing the Hedge Witch, Chirurgeon and Necromancy [Life] archetypes/specialists for the Witch, Alchemist and Wizard respectively. My intent is to actually give them some viable healing abilities that don't impact too much on other stuff they do (I'm looking at just outright buffing the Necromancy [Life] 'Healing Grace' ability for example). Before I post up my shitty house rule attempts, has any Anon here tried to create some more 'viable' healing class alternatives?

What you can do is this. Before introducing the cleric, use summons like planar demons and undead, then spells like flamestrike(via scrolls or traps). When the PCs seem weakened (or if they are smart, the casters will try to find the cleric with divination) you can have a dark god loving cleric appear and then fly with defenses already prepped.

Then you can use devils to fight on the ground while the cleric is using other spells. Because remember. If every member of a party is 7th level, fighting one level 10 cleric is not an issue. So you can also include abberation and extraplanar allies for the cleric to fight as secondary targets. Doing all this with the right tempo will put that fear in them without laying it all out there all at once.

For example, you never ever have to include all the enemies out on the same time because PCs will be able to pick out the threats easy and just blast them to hell. So you can coax some of their spells out with some pre-devils or undead.

Speaking from Essa's perspective once the city is cleared out she wishes to spend at least 2-3 days watching the city, mainly for outlying Gnoll patrols to return. This is to prevent the party leaving to inform the caravan that the city is cleaned out, only to return and find it full of gnolls again.

I do not know how Legacy of Fire normally works, but the town seems to be central the book came out around the same time as downtime and city building rules I think to the overall plot. Essa plans on moving her family to the town once she thinks its safe enough and other settlers start showing up. She is putting away 1/2 of her gained loot somewhere around 2000gp it seems to build a nice place to live for her family and give them some sort of livelihood at the moment she is thinking brewery should suffice, under a completely baseless assumption that all older males desire to open a brewery and retire to running an inn.

At some point I am planning on making the full list of Essa's younger siblings, I had planned for 10-15. Of the orphans who still visit Borger regularly Essa is the oldest, most of the kids are younger, a lot of the money is going to go to paying for them to have a better childhood than she did. Also this is likely to be the point the party realizes Essa's sex, as the younger kids refer to her as big sister. As well she essentially fills the role of stricter discipline for the kids, one of the main reasons she turned to petty crime as a child was because Borger didn't enjoy punishing the kids in his care. So these brats are getting smacked.

Temp HP was definitely something I was looking at. In fact, I altered the other Necromancy [Life] ability (Share Essence) to:

Soul Shell (Sp): You may spontaneously expend spell slots to grant you or an ally temporary hit points equal to 1d4 per level of the spell expended plus half your caster level (rounded up). You can only expend a number of spell slots equal to the highest level of spell that you can cast. You may use this effect on yourself as a swift action or on an ally as a standard action (range: 25 ft +5 ft per level). From level 11 onwards, you may expend 2 uses of the ability to cast it on an ally as a swift action and may expend 1 use of the ability to use it on yourself as an immediate action. Hit points granted in this way last for 1 round per caster level. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.

That might not be a bad idea actually. Think I'll roll with that.

The alteration I made to the Healing Grace ability for the Life specialist are:

Healing Grace (Su): Whenever you cast a spell that has targets, affects creatures in an area, or requires an attack roll, you may heal creatures affected by the spell for 1 point of damage per level of the spell plus your Int modifier or caster level (whichever is lower to a minimum of 1). This healing applies to all targets but you only receive half of your caster level or intelligence bonus for spells that have an area of effect component (minimum 1). Undead affected by this take damage instead. This healing occurs when the spell is cast and has no effect on creatures that enter its area after the spell is in place. At 20th level, the amount of damage cured increases to 2 points of damage per level of the spell.

So basically it's just slightly buffed in how much healing it does (think originally it was like you spell level x 2 but you had to spread the healing around if it was an area of effect which seemed to suck a bit) and effectively adds and option healing component to any other spell they use. I may add an exclusion component to it (can specify which people will and won't be affected) as, much like the original Healing Grace, it only affects creatures when the spell is initially cast and not when they walk into the area later on.

The thing that always baffled me with sexual orientation political revendications is how they're so persecuted randomly in the streets or so the propaganda posters say

Like oh yeah I see a dude in the street and I know he's gay if he doesn't tell me

Nobody knows my browsing history unless I purposedly yell out LOOK AT ME IM GAY AND PROUD

Which I will never do unless you're asking me seriously. Problem solved.

Don't listen to him, kobolds are super cool. He's just projecting his insecurity I believe, I mean he cannot see nonhuman races in any other way but chan politics now.

Ffs, we can just ASK the DM, and no, no mention of kobolds in the pitch, it's just the fucking title he gave, it's called TONGUE-IN-CHEEK and I think they just want to bitch for no purpose.

My main issue is how fucking shoehorned gender politics and transgendered issues are in the APs. They're extremely hamfisted in their portrayal. Shit man, I'm gay and I'm offended half the time by this shit.

The way Paizo does things screamed of virtue signaling. It's fucking patronizing.

>> No.53165728

I used the words I meant to, so don't put new ones in my mouth. A character isn't by default a "straight heterosexual white male", a character is by default "a character" and their race and sexual identity shouldn't be important in it.

From here on you only need to fill out the necessary details for them that's going to be used. You arrange defaults as appropriate for the setting so that it doesn't call for undue narrative focus, meaning that you cast Keleshites for Legacy of Fire which has nothing to do with diversity but has to do with arranging a sensible narrative, and which means you should be casting Kellids and Taldans for Wrath of the Righteous.

Their sexual identity is irrelevant until it's relevant. There's no need to call attention to it if it's not going to do anything at all. Even everyone being bi on the caravan is fine, that shows awareness that the AP remembers it's an AP.

When a character is gay and it's never mentioned, it's fine because it's inclusive and does pay respects to the desire of many of them to be treated as normal people. When a character is gay and it's everywhere but it factors into the work and shows respect, it's fine because you couldn't achieve the same results if they were heteronormative.

Diversity casting is the absolute worst, it's not pandering towards minorities, I'd know, it's pandering towards people who want to appear sympathetic towards minorities. It replaces one expectation with another and treats minorities like some kind of merit badge you can stick on things for more sales.

Like dude, if ever you're trying to argue they're trying to do healthy diversity, that's not how you do healthy diversity.

Diversity is set in realism. You can't throw the pitch of "oppressed minorities" if they're not actual minorities, and actual oppressed. Also being a victim doesn't mean you're a good person somehow.

That makes no sense at all.

What? The main villain of the campaign is LITERALLY A WOMAN TAKING ORDERS FROM A BUG. You don't see a white male villain after Book 1.

Oh boo hoo, are you talking about the black cleric and his white twink lover that promptly disappear off the radar after halfway through Book 2? Are we talking about Irabeth and Anevia, two characters who are only heroes because the Crusade HAS NO HEROES, and the moment the PCs show up they become irrelevant? Are we talking about the Queen, who by all accounts has failed tremendously in her duty as both sovereign and soldier?

Or are we talking about the White Male PCs, who by the end of the campaign are veritable demigods and worshiped as both the Heroes of the Crusade and Saviors of the Continent?

Are you seriously telling me you can't put up with a book of mild SocJus bullshit for an entire campaign of hot Paladin chicks with blonde braided hair sucking your dick while you dash entire armies on your own?

No. I'm saying that claiming Wrath is trying to say that "muh evil white males are the source of all fucking evil is disingenuous" when the vast majority of the antagonists don't qualify as any human ethnicity and are female. By the guy's own logic Paizo is saying females are the root of all evil.
There's like one black guy in the entire AP.

Fuck. I don't think there are that many NPC black guys. And I doubt your average black RPG fan probably appreciates his only representation being a gay Shelynite paladin that's fucking a drug addicted twink.
