Unless it's level 1 I can't be assed to track most minor shit. Having to check my rations and ammunition every time is not what I fucking play the game for.

How would you refluff paladin in a way that makes it hard or even impossible to tell that the character is supposed to be a paladin?

Alternatively, what's the most creative refluffing of a class you've ever seen? I'm looking for something that makes perfect sense mechanically, but thematically doesn't resemble the base class in any identifiable way.

I have a real life bard in my group and whenever we get a chance to shop he is always trying to talk the dm into having the fancy shit he wants in town. I just quietly buy mundane/masterwork items and mark them down. I have a huge list of gear. so when dm says 500 ft cliff I pull out 500 ft or silk rope and show him my inventory when he sputters.

A bard uses magic from their charisma, which comes from music, story telling etc. A witch doctor is a tribal leader who uses medicine, music and spiritual ceremonies to use their magic. So I propose using a bard, who plays the drums or hums magical chants, or even tell stories of past ancestors to access his magic. Charisma casting makes sense, and take proficiency in medicine for sure. Spells will be control and minor healing, and college of lore to grab some druid stuff like summons and plant magic.

Does this sound too edgy for a mid level mythic character.

>On the day of his hanging Morgan Hein screamed his defiance at the world. With bag over his head and the noose tight around his neck he screamed in rage and frustration at the crime he did not commit. He screamed and cursed his guards who held him, the people who stoned him, and the king who condemned him. He screamed until his voice was hoarse and he spat blood. As the floor fell from under him he screamed one last time in anguish. His neck snapped, and he was reborn.

This was the moment his mythic spark awakened and he survived the hanging, waking up after his body was throne to the heaps.

For reference he has Nameless One and wears the mask of "The Crooked Neck". He is an Oracle with the Wasting curse and Dark Tapestry mystery. He has the Monstrous Mask feat as well and wears a death mask of his face when he was hung. His neck is elongated and bent to one wide along with being swollen and purple from when he was hung.

I'm kind of interested in but only because I want to play as a guy on horseback lancing giant robots and whatever sci-fi/fantasy fusion monsters that it will no doubt feature.

>> No.54323798

The problem with Iron Gods is that most of your loot isn't magical. It's laser rifles, bombs, medpacks, electro-lockpicks, etc. You've got to go out of your way to find the good shit, or just have a dedicated crafter in the party.

>> No.54323806


I like Conall because I have a weakspot for dex spear fag type characters. His personality section is the only part that causes me some worry because he's kind of schizophrenic, hates fighting but it's the only thing he's good at, is friendly, but melancholic.

I like Vesha for being very thematic to Iron Gods, I've played a decent bit of this AP in the past and the themes in the app would probably tie in very nicely to the AP. Needs to finish sheet though.

Semzaya is solid but I hate summoners on principle.

Also with a WIP tag, Wubu's app is cute but I'm not a fan of de-powered characters, and it's also another one that is WIP.

Shota is okay but the app reads very boring and I'm not a fan of shota so it doesn't do it for me. This one is like "Does the DM want /ss/"

Kodrak is pretty fun, this is also an app that is very thematic to Iron Gods.

I haven't read the rest but all in all I tend to like the ones that feel the most like they "belong" and take advantage of the setting as opposed to being characters you could drop into any campaign.


Mounted combat would be a bad fit for Iron Gods, lots of cramped spaces, and to be honest lance chargers are the lamest characters anyway because of how skew they are.

Cynn is "Does the DM want a chuuni anime stereotype in the game". I guess I can admire the honesty in presentation but personally it seems like a bit of a bad fit for IG if it's played straight where a lot of the early books have a sort of spooky mystery vibe. Who knows what the DM has planned though.

Cynn reads less Chuuni and more megalomaniacal to me. The two are similar, I admit, but the distinction is important.

IF the DM is smart enough to buff them, they can be passable, at base they're straight worse than advanced firearms in just about every way

Well, most importantly it's a question of does the DM want a character who talks like they do in the app? Like I said, I respect the idea of being very forward with it, but it doesn't do it for me personally.

Guns aren't especially good for you, but lots of enemies will have them, so expect touch AC attacks a lot.

Right, but I think some of the other apps have a wider thematic appeal. Like "Meltdown" could be played a few different ways, so if I'm reading that app and there's an angle I like I would probably project that onto my choices. Where as I think Cynn is just Broodie saying "This is how I RP all my characters always". Can't say that I'm a fan of porn with a bad MS Paint job over it either. Ultimately, if you were going to try to guess picks I think schedule availability is going to be way more important than anything else. A lot of these players already have games, and this one is weekly which means they can't slot it into a bi-weekly slot. Right now I think I could make a four person party from the apps, but going to five or six would be hard for me.

Eh, by the time you're playing mythic, archmage is actually the least of your worries. It's no different than dealing with wizards in ordinary PF according to /tg/ - they're already invincible quantum casters anyways with knowledge of everyspell and instant and total preparation for every contingency

the truth of the matter is that beign able to cast every spell doesn't actually instantly solve every battle ever with you're delaing with mythic monsters, any more than beign able to do tons of damage does. That';s how you can trell people who complain about mythic never actually play mythic. If they played it, they wouldn't complain about it the way they do, because the problems they claim exist really aren't problems as much as they are incidentals that have very little impact on how the combats go.

There's a literal Dimension of Time in Golarion, it's reached by traveling through the Dimension of Dreams (and if you take a wrong turn, you'll end up at Leng instead). Outsiders and gods can't enter it. Not like somebody says they can and won't let them in- they are incapable of entering the Dimension of Time for cage reasons. Only mortals can enter, but risk horrible consequences for missing with time, including retroactively erasing themselves.

Every Soalrian can aadjust to light or dark in every seperate combat as they wish, you know.

>The stars guide the planets with gravity, create life with light and heat, and utterly consume worlds in supernovas and black holes. You understand that these acts of creation and destruction are not opposites, but rather two parts of a natural, dualistic cycle. You seek to be an agent of that cycle, an enlightened warrior with the ability to manipulate the forces of the stars themselves. Constantly accompanied by a mote of fundamental energy or entropy, you can shape this essence in combat to create weapons and armor of gleaming stellar light or pure, devouring darkness. Whether you apprenticed in a temple or came to your powers through personal revelation, you recognize yourself as part of an ancient tradition—a force of preservation and annihilation.

You want to know what they sound like to me?


>Stellar modes are forms of attunement the solarian can focus on in combat. Each round in a fight, the solarian can remain unattuned, or increase either photon attunement or graviton attunement, depending on whether the solarian wishes to draw on the stellar powers of light and heat and life-giving energy, or darkness and gravity and all things being bound together. Every solarian has access to both photon and graviton powers

As far as my pal's 5e game, he's working up a series of interesting parallel worlds, a kind of Multiverse plot, and I'm helping him put together a few of his mini-campaign destinations: a Dark, Gothic world of perpetual twilight ruled by Vampires and other ghastly things, a primordial, fetid, jungle world filled with dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, as well as powerful elemental forces and primitive tribes of humanoids, and finally a post-apocalyptic world that was the most bog standard, traditional fantasy realm possible until some time within the last century, when an extraterrestrial vessel crashed and legions of autonomous war machines began laying waste to large swathes of the world.

>Have you ever played a character with a prosthetic?
I plan to have a LOT of fun with prosthetics in Starfinder, but Pathfinder? I've been tempted to make a guy with a silvered arm, but so far I haven't found the right campaign for it.

Should I play one?

The archetype isn't so bad by the looks of it, it just has the issue of the class itself not being so hot.

I'm glad you had a good time! Saturday game is being slow, since we're in the middle of transitioning between tasks, which always takes us a while, and an old player is returning. If he shows, we can pick up his character. If he doesn't, it's mostly just selling shit and making shopping lists. It's an online game, so I can just mess around with Ungermaw theorycrafting and browse here if we don't do anything. Sunday game has been stalled for about 2 weeks, so I'd love them to make some headway on their investigation. If that doesn't happen, more theorycrafting and browsing here.

Got a game on Saturday and Sunday! Can't wait for the weekend.

>> No.54329043

I'm working this weekend.

I'd like to finish writing the next adventure, but the PCs won't email more information about their personal stories so I can work them into the plot.

That's because gunslingers craft bullets at a fraction of the price.

They do not gain the D10 HD.

This weekend's game is cancelled for me, sadly. On the upside, however, the reason is because there's a wedding going on tomorrow!

Anything in particular you're looking forward to?

Trying to convert an old module to Pathfinder, plan out the next leg of a story arc and its monsters...maybe figure out a training montage to justify retraining into an initiator.

That's a pity. What have they done thus far? Maybe there's something worth expanding on?

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Oh, character "interactions" for sure. Our group's dynamic is starting to really pick up.

Why do you guys put these up for so long? Make it a week. Two at the absolute most.

Attention whoring

>> No.54329630

The good side is that people make friends talking about it, bring their best building and writing skills to the table, and improve themselves, while giving the thread something to talk about and entertain themselves with.

The bad side is how that never actually happens, and it just devolves into shitposting, self-shilling, and attention whoring.

Well there's no precedent, but ultimately, this isn't about the general rules for magic items, but the specific rules for the Clockwork Mimicries. Technically, these are not wondrous items, they're objects that counts as such but with specific limitations, including a time limit.

The question is, unless it's specifically called out that something has to be consecutive, does it has to be? It would be extremely odd if at 14:00 every day, your items die, leaving the class feature useless, but it's almost equally odd to imagine non-consecutive use, because then why have limitations at all?
