    I think everyone will have some disagreements a lot depends on your group and their approach and we are all different. In this case you are getting a comprehensive set of answers as I am off work recovering from surgery and have a lot of time available I agree it will be a lot of work, I don't expect to need it for all of the many reasons plus I know my group. I don't worry too much about an...

    Pretty much the above. The players worked out from the information on the bomb and the journalists invitation what the target was. However really it does not matter if they do or not and it may actually be more fun if they don't . With the information about the time and place of the attack it turned into a Tureky shoot with the A and B teams reinforced by Gale ambushing the terrorists and wiping...

    There are notes on changing later adventures with the players switching to support the Ob. Why should the party oppose the Ob 1) See above if they really don't want to 2) The Ob has demonstrated a ruthless and somewhat evil approach to implementing their plans, do you trust them to actually make things better and to do so without murdering large numbers of people to achieve their goals. The ob...

    I have been looking through book 2 . I expect to end up rebuilding most npc's to match the power gaming of my pc's which is fairly normal for me. I have noticed that several of the servants of the monarchy of Risur have powers gained by being servants of the crown or in the case of Dame Gillian specifically granted by the king I am wondering if anyone has any ideas for if or what powers the pc...

    It could just be that they are wrong and Hewanharimau was cast out justly , not uncommon for odd cults of religions to have strange beliefs incompatible with the main stream. If it is something that is going to interest your players then make something of it. I am probably going to do a bit more with the weretigers as my players like big cats and I may drop some hint of links to Gloine the evil...

    It's the strange thoughts players have. I had never considered just how much adamantium must be involved in building Borne. However the morning after he turned up I got an analysis of the amount of Adamantine needed to build him and it's cost. Also apparently Borne is only the second largest golem to menace a party of pc's there was a 1000 foot tall golem in module CM4

    And to solve the mecha issue that technically his ground pressure is so absurd Its probably even worse as Adamantine bypassing 20 points of hardness probably translates to some kind of force multiplier for destroying things. If he's really lucky he's swimming in bedrock right now, if not he's heading down to the magma layer to swim with the lavafishes. As he's not i'm assuming a wizard...

    Manuel's player has been working on some estimates about Borne Honestly a 500' tall artifact adamantine golem is more than most D&D societies ever achieve, the ob should probably just stop now. Ballparking some math: Adamatine weighs 1000lb per cubic foot (steel is ~490lb per cubic foot) and adamatine is about twice the weight) 1lb of Adamantine is 500gp A 6ft man has about 2.5 cubic...

  • 10:33 AM - Karma Kollapse quoted Andrew Moreton in post [ZEITGEIST] New game questions (pathfinder)
    None of my group use crafting yet. However I would allow them to craft items as part of their stipend for half price(i.e the cost to make rather than the sale price the stipend is based on), there is a fair amount of downtime early on and I would allow the pc's up to 4 hours crafting a day while still doing their jobs so a crafting day for every full day. I also don't modify the stipend for artifacts the group may aquire (1st Sword of Ssramma, the Icons, Shimmering wand of Egal etc) Basically for our group, everything here for the most part. I've allowed crafting during large downtime (like the start of Adventure #4). A lot of the treasures in Crypta Hereticarum I let the players keep (like the monk's gloves, and the aforementioned Sword of Srasama.).

  • 07:49 PM - Tizbiz quoted Andrew Moreton in post Reoccuring Vilians ?
    I am planning on bringing back a villain in similar circumstances. For part 5 I intend to replace Kell for the final confrontation near the Colossus with a Reborn version of the Butler Creed. My idea is that as he died drowning in a vat of Witchoil he is going to come back as a living creature of Witch oil motivated by spite and malelovance. Great idea. Hope it gets to be a success! In my campaign he was actually part of an witch oil accident which led to further risuri research and finally got banned by the king.

  • 01:42 PM - Frankie1969 quoted Andrew Moreton in post Zeitgeist planes in chapter 7?
    The planes in the Gyre are not the only ones available to the Ob, the Ob have years of astrology/astronomy to have studied the stars and identified suitable planes and pick them. It seems like some of this research should have survived beyond chapter 7, perhaps even a pre-made icon or two.

  • 08:38 AM - Karma Kollapse quoted Andrew Moreton in post [ZEITGEIST] End of Eschatologist Arc in Adv #5 (Spoilers, naturally)
    The important checks seem to be disable device DC 16-21 With the pc's likely to have a +4 bonus from detect magic and a technologist. They will be level 7 or 8 , assuming any of them have disable device then 7 skill ranks, 3 favoured class and +3 or more from stat so probably +17 on their skill check. so the first 3 checks cannot be failed only the dc 19-21 checks can be failed and I expect a higher dex than the minimum above so probably only 1 check can be failed on a 1 , and if the pc with disable device is a technologist he can't fail any of the checks. See, there's a lot of assumptions here - the party's Slayer has 8 skill ranks, +3 from class bonus, only +2 Dex (but an additional +2 from Cat's Grace, possibly), so that's only +13. There's no technologist, and unless I say outright 'you can use detect magic', it's not really guaranteed that someone would think of that possibility. The heart of the problem though is that the encounter is basically roll 7 times, if one roll fails then a nuk...

  • 06:22 AM - hirou quoted Andrew Moreton in post The affirmative action racial recruitment team of the RHC
    I am sure I remember from somewhere a reference to an Ob spy at the Battalion academy who has been recruiting people . roughly equivalent to SAxby who commits suicide sometime after Saxby is uncovered and the stat of book 6 but after looking yesterday I can find no reference to it. It is the sort of thing my pc's are looking for so I want to make sure I don't miss it out unless it is my imagination p.404 of compilation Act I, it's in adventure 5: How does one end up working in the Bleak Gate for a mysterious conspiracy? Most of the people here are patriotic soldiers and engineers, recruited with the promise of a chance to serve their country. In the aftermath of the adventure, the party might track down the head recruiter, one Colonel Greg Masterson, at the Battalion military academy. As soon as he gets word of the catastrophe at Cauldron Hill, though, he goes out into the bayou and blows his brains out. He reported to Roland Stanfield, and does not want anyone to discover Stanfield’s involvement...

    Jesus. Punitive mindwipe for treason is a grand way to start off the new age, innit? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:OrbAllesIstSchoen.ogghttp:// Just thought I would say how much I enjoy reading someone elses account of the the campaign who has more writing talent than me. You're too kind. Always a pleasure to hear from anyone who's enjoying the write-ups. They are fun to write and really help our campaign, so posting them here is really the icing on the cake. (Also, I get to change things slightly when I realise I've effed up. No one seems to notice...)

  • 08:53 AM - Antonio Di Benedetto quoted Andrew Moreton in post Vekeshi Excoriant prestige class
    Opening Volley is not a particularly good feat, the +4 to hit is nice but it requires that you be in position to shoot and then close to melee in the next round, so it is useful in less than half of all combat rounds , you will often prefer to spend multiple turns shooting or be spending multiple turns in melee so it is hard to use. One of my players took it in a different campaign and found she almost never used it as the situation to use it became complex. Improved two weapon fighting is probably more useful as it gives an extra attack on a full attack. You have a better attack bonus than most rogues by a small amount due to gunslinger levels and you should be trying to make attacks against flat footed or flanked opponents which helps your to hit chance and your guns target touch ac which is often quite low depending on the opponent. Ah I see, I didn't think about it bcs I thought that as a scout I could shot, hit and than charge in the next turn at double speed (that i thought sufficient f...

    even i was just realizing that pistolero its in ultimate combat, so i can use that build with un rogue that u posted, actually seem the most nice to play as the others r banned (lol) and give me anyway a choice on which weapon to use, till lv 11 when i can shot and hit in the same turn. At level 11 you take the Sword and Pistol feat so you must have Point blank shot, rapid shot, two weapon fighting and snap shot by this level, that leaves you 1 or 2 other feats so pick them carefully uhm...like some boost to hit and dodge?

  • 10:58 AM - Antonio Di Benedetto quoted Andrew Moreton in post Vekeshi Excoriant prestige class
    I have not spent most of the skill points or 2 alchemical discoveries and have tried to limit my feat choices. But by default I have every published supplement turned on so I find it hard to limit the choices. It gets good sneak attack, and good alchemy , as designed it uses 2 shortswords , could also use daggers for a wider choice of weapons you need to take a level of fighter or similar to get martial weapon proficiency or spend a feat to get proficiency with one weapon. Toughness could be replaced by any other feat , improved critical is a good choice Unnamed Hero Human alchemist (vivisectionist) 17/unchained rogue 3 (Pathfinder RPG Advanced Player's Guide 26, 134, Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Combat 72, Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Magic 20, Pathfinder Unchained 20) Medium humanoid (human) Hero Points 1 Init +6; Senses Perception +0 -------------------- Defense -------------------- AC 16, touch 16, flat-footed 10 (+6 Dex) hp 146 (20d8+43) Fort +12, Ref +18, Will +6 Defensive Abilities b...

  • 03:33 PM - Adb0782 quoted Andrew Moreton in post Vekeshi Excoriant prestige class
    With your party (I just checked your OP) I would go for something like 13 levels of unchained rogue and 7 of mutation warrior fighter for TWF I would take 3 levels of rogue than 4 of fighter then alternate after that until I had 7 levels of fighter. Bab is 16 at lvl 20 and you will get a lot of attacks. Knifefighter rogue archetype works well with Kukri's as it gives d8 sneak attack, but d4 with most other weapons but that is rarely a problem. For RP reasons I would really consider an Eladrin for a Vekeshi mystic probably female, it was my advice to my group not going to explain why as that would be a poiler It just work well with TWF? Bcs this is what i would choose actually, but i think to use it with the build with the half elf and the ECB with the rogue's archetype of swashbuckler that i post below, is that a good idea?
  • 01:37 AM - Adb0782 quoted Andrew Moreton in post Vekeshi Excoriant prestige class
    Character buid advice Assassin is a really bad choice because --- 1)It's rubbish 2) It is thematically complciated for a constable 3) RAW it is evil only Frankly Unchained Rogue levels are much better than assassin levels as you get rogue talants while the assassin gets abilities which sound good but have saves anyone worth assassinating will make easily. If you really want to boost HTH ability levels of Ranger or Fighter could be worthwhile. I was going to recomend slayer but then I noticed it was banned for strange reasons, that makes any detailed advice hard as your GM is using a strange ban list which means other things could be banned. I personally thing the minor/major magic talants are a bit rubbish, if you want to use magic and be a rogue go either with the eldritch rogue archetype which gives you level 1-6 of wizard casting , or combine Wizard and rogue with Arcane trickster one of the few worthwhile prestige classes Well yea, i can still change minor and major magic maybe with recil...
