Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Just so you guys know, I haven't dropped this BUT I just started mt senior project class as well as having VL duties and other issues this week. I'm about 1/3rd done with my game setup and once IT is done, pcs are approved it won't take much to get first steps moving.

Bear with me.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
I have two basic concepts I'm considering... one is a half-orc cavalier whom is really more of combat brute, with a little bit of ability to affect the combat environment.  However, it sounded like we might have a decent share of combat fighters already, so I began trying to consider other options.

Another option is a Bard (Dawnflower Dervish) so they would also be a bit of a combatant, but would have some arcane spell capability, and would also be intended to fight along side others helping to protect them as well as dishing out damage.

I thought about a Chirurgeon alchemist... but that wouldn't actually help the party out that much with healing, until the character made it to 2nd level.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Well after you get your prestige for the first adventure, you can get a wand of cure light wounds (750 gp/2 pp) and since it's on your spell list.. you can use it without UMD.

The first adventure is some combat and some social events. Not everything is 'wipe everything out' some times it's 'go in and find X and if you CAN keep a low profile.'

There are dungeon crawls, cross country treks and stuff that can be calls 'espionage' scenarios throughout the 5 seasons I have access to.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Yes... the Bardic Dervish would be able to make an effective use of a wand of CLW.  That is for certain.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Two questions:
1) there's a"we be goblins!" Game up -- is that the PFS we've been talking about (like, did I miss it?)?
2) In PFS, how hard is it to qualify for prestige classes like "hell knight signifier" (sorry, didn't check to see if that was on the list. But the general question stands ... Unless everything with odd prerequisites has been eliminated ...)

Thanks!

1. That's not mine.. (I've been busy.. voting, helping others, and doing school projects).

2. Hellknight Signifier (and winter witch prc) were just opened up last month (the original plan I think was to open them up as scenario boons but it was shelved) and most of the prestige classes are as is. For other classes they have some changes which is where the 'additonal resources page' comes in. It outlines where the changes are at and which classes aren't allowed (like the Aspis agent..they are the societies arch-rivals)

Excellent! I don't want to do it twice (that would be cheating) so I'll wait. And thanks for the info!

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
I can answer some things.. but others I can't. (my NDA is pretty specific in some points) but the decision apparently went down before I became a Venture-Officer and I talked to my Venture-Captain about it for some time.

Season 4 (the latest season) has some nice rewards BUT is also some of the hardest eps out there. I'm to run 'In Wrath's Shadow' next week and it has a nice boon item BUT if you are a 'kill em all and move to next room' sort.. you're going to get in trouble.

(Not to mention it goes counter to the mission at hand)

They are some of the BEST stories too. Rise of the Goblin Guild in my opinion is one of the best stories out there.. Goblins are definitely crazy little psychopaths in Pathfinder. And nothing is more creepy than the little buggers throwing Alchemist fire at you (with the perk of +1d4 from Burn! Burn! Burn (racial feat)) while singing on how your flesh will sizzle.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
I'm a "story" player, so that doesn't bother me. The hardest part of RPOL for me personally has been the near-total lack of character progress (it's the medium, not the GMs).

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
you need a more 'long term' campaign.  Most pf games are adventure oriented, and youre lucky if you finish the adventure.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
If it's the medium it's still the GMs. Because the GM needs to adapt to the medium.

GMing is a truly honorable gamer role that demands a lot of hard work.

I've run a Dark Heresy campaign here on RPOL for over a year now. And it's the only game I've played that has survived an length of time. Because ultimately the players look to the GM to keep the game going.... and I've made it my mission to keep the game going.

But more over I've had to find ways to encourage actual RP... to push players to desire growth etc. I find one-on-one attention is great for this. I've got a minor sub-plot going on in secret for each of my players.... I handle it by pvt message and locked threads etc. But it really pushes them to develop characters and it also flavors the way they interact with the other players.

The GM must find ways to use the medium. It's not the medium's fault.

Well, as long as the adventure has a Story to it, I'm actually okay with it. :D

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Anyone have any experience with Mythic Adventures?  It sounds like an interesting possibility to make some high profile 'characters'.  Is any of it going to show up on the SRD?

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Which SRD?

http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/

Which will probably have it eventually, but they're usually some months behind.

Or there's the unofficial one, but as far as I can tell, still legal.

http://www.d20pfsrd.com/

Which has pretty much everything Paizo, and so will definitely get Mythic Adventures at some point.

I'm salivating over Mythic Adventures, but it hasn't arrived, last I checked, in Australian stores.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Surprised that no one has commented on the Advanced Classes playtest.

They just rreleased a beta test document for it last week and are already radically revising some of the hybrid classes they put out.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
A little bit.  Know Direction did a podcast at Gencon that covered this and a few other items. It's an 'Alternate Mechanics ' book if I recall rightly. Alternate summoners, magic and martial options and such.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Anyone have experience with the new Occult classes in pathfinder?  I haven't had a chance to dig into them.  I'll admit that I wasn't really a fan of Psionics in 3.5, so I wonder what I'll think of these when I do.

Re: Pathfinder Discussion
Well I found conductive works good with Mystic Bolts for a Warlock. Go TWS and get two keen conductive weapons.. you're ready to rock and roll.

The warlock, and to a lesser extent the cabalist, both got boned because of kineticists.

aphasia is my official favor 'screw the caster' spell. Puzzle box can really mess up a fighter in heavy armor with a nasty weapon.. -4 NWP instantly
