I have a question about the Monk of Many Styles.

It says you can choose a bonus style feat that you don't have to meet the prereqs for.

Does that mean you can take a style feat midway through a style?

Like jump to Pummeling Bully without taking Pummeling Style, for example?

I have a question about the Umbral Blade prestige class for a friend of mine.

He was wondering if the free action discharge as a part of a martial strike interacted with the damage at all. It looked like the bonus damage only applied on the turn it was charged, is the discharge just to allow it to be charged again next move action?

>Many Maneuvers of the Chimera Soul Discipline specify a specific type of Natural Attack. If your form currently does not have this natural attack, you temporarily gain the attack for purposes of initiating this maneuver, but it only does your Strength Modifier in damage, plus any bonus from the maneuver.
Shouldn't you mention that it's only the natural weapon damage meant to be zero? As written, damage bonuses from items, feats or stances wouldn't apply.

You'd think so, I assume it's mostly for balance reasons. The benefit of a crossbow is its simplicity and relative power. As a result, pf made it slow as hell, the work-around version of that had to be made difficult to use.

BTW, on the layout thing, I would totally recommend LaTeX (which can do a lot of neat layout stuff automatically if you can wrap your brain around its template language), or Pandoc (which uses plain Markdown text files and can process them through LaTeX or other templates).

Either way, it basically separates the layout from the text, so all you're directly editing is headers and source text, and it makes automating stuff like table of contents, footnotes, etc way easier.

This is too much tism. You're failing to see the purpose of a lot of items and archetypes, hell even classes, fucking 10 bab clerics, droods and oracles. You're better off, god damn me for saying it, but making the wizard stronger, or reducing the versatility that the oracle, cleric and druid bloodlines/domains grant them.

Staves are intended to make lackluster scaling on sphere casting less meh, perhaps it you limited max caster level to character level+1/4 or 5 levels that would make the staff less overwhelming.

The reason why I dropped the clerics, druids, and oracles, is because I want the hunters, warpriests, and shamans to actually have a reason to exist, rather than just being redundant in comparison to their castier brothers.

Good point on the staves though. I think I should make that change.

You need to work on that document layout. Its not really in a very readable format at the moment - too much margin, poor font choice, makes it very unappealing to tackle.

It won't get it into a publishable state, but I'd really suggest transferring to a google doc (or something similar) just for presenting it. That doesn't have to be where you do your work on it, but something like the DSP playtests is much more approachable.

Mostly because, at the time I started this thing, I was obssessed with removing as many elements of the Vancian system, including ones that where either SLAs or referenced spells, mostly to help lessen the book keeping and reliance of looking at the old spell entries.

In hindsight, this was probably a stupid idea, especially now that I've had a little over a year on on-and-off working on it to think about it, yet I have still been unable to come to a proper decision whether to keep or leave them.

The biggest critique beyond formatting that I have is that so much of it is just... editing and unofficial errata. Bob's Big Book o' Bugfixes doesn't appeal.

I get wanting to change things, to make them better, but that's not really content you can sell. I think you'd get better reception from either making a spheres of power inspired system, or for making completely new content for Spheres of Power that achieved similar effects.

Also, big book o' archetypes is a bit monotone too, really. Consider some extra talents. Or an alternate weather sphere or destruction sphere. New talents. Add in some variety.

Thanks, that was one thing I wanted to work hard on, ensuring some archetypes could now work better together than prevously. Like how I tried my best to make some of the Magus archetypes stack better.

I see, so what you're saying is this is better suited as just a series of homebrew fixes, rather than an actual 1$ book. Or do one of your suggested alternatives, which are regrettably beyond my capability.

No, I mean, immediately following Earthfall is basically the time period that it most makes sense for things to be low magic, so you can't say the fix to gender issues during that time period was magic. Later on magic was rediscovered and redeveloped, so now the setting is high magic again and you can get away with saying magic solves those problems- but the Devs keep trying to convince us the setting is low magic when that doesn't make sense. It's basically that they flip-flop between treating Golarion as high magic or low magic setting, whichever is convenient for what they're trying to do/say at the moment.

I was thinking of making a Summoner that rushed Nature Soul, Animal Ally, Boon Companion, and Eldritch Heritage (Arcane). The goal is to have a full leveled animal companion + a full leveled Eidolon with a Familiar to boot (likely later turned into an improved Familiar).

I'd say so, yes. I doubt they really support piracy, but Pathfinder wouldn't exist without the ability to freely share and expand on the work of others.

Its probably not optimal that a large portion of their playerbase doesn't actually purchase anything, but it generates interest in the game, maintains a good sized playerbase... and even if they cracked down, it probably wouldn't change the situation much.

So, freedom of information, larger playerbase, most of their content is accessible anyway. All cracking down on piracy really earns them is ire. So why bother?

Are Inflict Wounds/Negative Energy clerics viable as supporters of their comrades, or am I doomed to failure?

Can't afford wands yet.

Sure they are, unless your comrades are selfish pricks who take damage from negative energy.

In that case, I recommend replacing them with undead who don't complain when you infuse them with raw entropy.
>>
>>45287577
You can still prepare cure spells if it comes down to it. But cure spells suck. Get a wand of cure light wounds or (better yet, and probably compatible with your faith) infernal healing. It costs 750 gp and your party should pool money to get one, i.e. you should be able to afford one before you all hit 2nd level.

And healing at 1st level is meaningless cuz everyone dies in one hit anyway.
>>
>>45287577
In-combat healing isn't particularly useful anyway, so about as viable as any other cleric.
>>
>>45287577
Nope. Inflict wound only worth it when you can put rider effect on it, like Lunar Oracle.

You could be Herald Caller who spam Negative Energy though, since you auto exclude all your summon monster from the damage. But it still worst than Positive Energy version because you will be doing pitiful damage.

You do, but you can hold and carry a two-handed weapon with one hand, and you can remove and add hands on a two-handed weapon as a free action. So you can totally let go with one hand, cast the spell, and grab it again.
>>
>>45287983
Only if it has a somatic component, and >>45288026 is right.
>>
>>45287983
Shifting hands is a free action. Take hand off weapon, cast, put hand back on weapon. The limitation only matters if you have two different items to hold (heavy shields mostly).
>>
>>45287886
No, d20 modern is pretty broken. And because it was so small in comparison to 3.5 it got no attention or errata, much less a revival in later rulesets.

The d20 system just isn't well suited to a game set in "today," for reasons I can't well articulate but I'm sure other people here can easily. (Just as a quick example--skills.)

Modern fantasy isn't the easiest to pull off well. I like Fireborn but that system has its own problems.

> No. Adding a spell to your list of spells known does not add it to the spell list of that class unless they are added by a class feature of that same class. For example, sorcerers add their bloodline spells to their sorcerer spell list and oracles add their mystery spells to their oracle spell list. The spell slots of a class can only be used to cast spells that appear on the spell list of that class.

Spell known != Spell list. You still can't cast stuff that isn't on your spell list.

I can't help but agree with this. The intention of WBL is to try and keep everybody on the same level, NOT to fucking give the players some kind of unlimited bullshit fund.

They want to abuse shit like that, start giving them 2-3 levels below WBL, if that. If they're going to try and abuse it, don't give it to them.

I presume they're looting the corpses so they end up ahead of WBL, genius.

>>45288483
1st option : Gives everyone items/money so they stay at WBL and has no incentive to die.

2nd option : Limited the wealth of new character to the average of party wealth.

3rd option : Some sort of penalty on the new character. Not recommending this.

I see. My recommendation is to talk to the party about WBL, treasure, expectations, and your ability to DM then. If the problem is that they're "abusing" the wealth system, then it's an OoC and expectations thing, not something you can solve with in-game rules.
>>
>>45288483
The WBL rules are intended to keep players at a given wealth level based on their level. That is, if they go under (by buying a lot of consumables, or some big fluff things, or whatever), you give more loot, if they go over, you give less loot, and if they go way over, that frees you up to use loot-destroying enemies.

So by the rules, they're way over. Start introducing money sinks. Big fluffy things that cost a lot but aren't mechanically useful. Roleplaying things: mansions, bribes, servants, whatever.

And negative attention, like thieves and saboteurs.

Also, just maybe, try talking to your players?

If I'm afflicted by a status condition, and I get hit by a spell/ability that makes me immune to said condition, does the affliction go away?

>>45288289
Paladin gets its own mount, so I would say its your first choice. Can also do mounted archery or lance builds well too thanks to smite and good BAB.

Cleric is worst. Doesn't even get ride skill IIRC. Focus on heavier armor and spell casting meshes badly with ride. Dont do it.

No idea about inquisitor. Focus on teamwork seems to make mounted combat unsuitable, unless you can count your mount as an ally. No natural mount options as far as I know.

Druids are not terrible but wildshape and spell casting are way stronger than anything you would want to do mounted.

I dont know hunters.

Eh, Mulan used her sword more often than projectiles. Plus she did have her cool family sword.

If her alignment wasn't so nebulous, I'd merk her as a Chosen One paladin, though a Kensei or just normal magus could work. Perhaps a Beastblade?
>>
Is there a Pathfinder build that's roughly equivalent to the classic 3.5 paladin/sorcerer/abjurant champion with sanctified spells? I want to play a mostly magic guy with a dash of Lawful Good glowy gish to him.
>>
>>45288763
You could go alchemist for Mulan, maybe. But face facts: every one of her major fights was won solely through the use of fireworks. You can't build her as a sword-user when all her best moments were exploding-missile-based.

And what else is Jasmine going to bring to a battle but Rajah? Spiritualist maybe, but there's no Robin Williams emotional focus.

Battle Host Occultist? The family sword could be a focus for her.

What about when she fought and disarmed Shanyu with a fan? OR when during sparring she was able to sock Shang

You only needs +5 or +10 ride check. Even a Cleric can do it with a single trait. (+3 class skill + 1 trait + 2 saddle = +6 already)

Both Cleric and Inquisitor can get mount via Chivalry inquisition. This function exactly like cavalier's mount, including "no armor check penalty to ride".

Uncanny Concentration feats allows Cleric to cast spell while the mount double move or even run.

She used some combat maneuvers to lock Shanyu down while her familiar prepped the rocket. That's what True Strike is for. And anyone can throw a nonlethal punch in a training scenario, as long as they didn't dump strength.
>>
>>45289046
I like the imagery of heavy armor but when making characters I tend to skew light.

Honestly though a lot of times I just write folks in chain armor 'cause there's a reason that shit was popular. Shame it's so aggravatingly mediocre in PF.

>You release the bonds of your old body to assume the form of the most powerful predators to ever live, the mighty dragons. While in this stance, you gain the benefits of Form of the Dragon II, choosing which type of dragon to emulate each time you assume the stance. In addition, while in this stance, if you have used up all your breath weapons, you may spend a swift action to recover two more uses of your breath weapon attack, however you must still wait 1d4 rounds after your last breath weapon use to recover new uses.

You're a martial initiator, you already have a way to recover things. Just let them recover their breath weapon as if it was a Chimera Soul maneuver. The "once per 1d4 rounds" restriction should be on how often you can use it anyway, not on how often you can recover it.

Actually, he would be Polymorphed, not awakened. But that's probably a fine distinction.
>>
>>45289202
Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go.
>>
>>45289162
Reign of Winter is probably the most Disney of the APs, with the whole "swept up through a portal to a far-away land" business. Kingmaker or Hell's Rebels could fit in a pinch.
>>
>>45289202
The protagonist of Super Robot Monkey team hyper force Go. Hence Sun Wukong.

He seems more like a Squad Leader or Steel Fist to me though. It's been a while since I've seen the show.
>>
>>45285831
>The biggest problem with deciding what to do with each AP is that each developer has a least a dozen ideas they REALLY want to develop into an AP. Galt is still on the list. The only drawback is that we've just done two very political APs in a row (Hell's Rebels and Hell's Vengeance), so we'll want to look at something more traditional before we jump onto something political again.
>something more traditional

Or, like, Lovecraft. But they had to make that so they can pretend Occult Adventures is relevant.

"Traditional" with Paizo means "crawl dungeons, kill monsters, no shitty untested subsystems or books devoted to social galas". Mummy's Mask and Giantslayer were traditional, and Strange Aeons is going to be pretty much like those two despite the subject matter.

How does one properly use music while GMing a campaign? I'd like to use some atmospheric tracks for general town/dungeon/etc but combat has me scratching my head since it takes so fucking long you'd have to loop it like 20 times.

Let players pick music when it's not their turns.

Get ambient music from video games or the like. Game ambient tracks are usually designed to be looped endlessly without being noticeable about it.

>>45289361
Sher Khan. The only big cat capable of taking him down would be Mufasa. No, not Simba. Mufasa.
>>
>>45289607
Oh, I know. I'm referring to how anything heavier than Light Armor drops your speed to 2/3(ish) and has bad armor check penalties, at least before getting into special materials.

And good luck even affording unenchanted mithral full plate before like level 10.

>>45289360
You'd still be able to get more uses by exiting the stance and re-entering it, so refreshing it as a maneuver doesn't really make sense. The question is, can you take a swift action to switch directly from a stance to the same stance?

You should be able to take a swift action to reset the stance - not only resetting your uses of your breath weapon (with a note that the timer still applies), but giving you the option to choose a different dragon form.
>>
>>45289995
No, you cannot. This is actually a major part of balancing a couple stances, iirc, like Infinity Mirror Stance. It requires you to dance between two to do that.
