    Pathfinder 1E Help me find a magic item that summons assassin ghost

    Hello, I have prepped a dungeon which has hidden passageway which was supposed to contain this magical bottle that can summon a deadly (red?) ghost undead that can be ordered to target a person in 10 miles (iirc) and kill him. There was some sort of battle of wills (a saving throw) and the...

    Pathfinder 1E wraith vs spectre

    So here I am checking out the stats of wraith and spectre, because I was wanting to give my players 3 different ghost types to encounter. However! The wraith and spectre are almost identical, but with 2 CR difference! Almost same hp, wraith has HIGHER AC! Is this some sort of oversight or does...

    Pathfinder 1E GM advice: XP rewards when combat is not the actual solution?

    Hello, Simple question: i have cursed undead within a tomb, in which in order to actually defeat them, something special has to be done. Although combat is likely, that isn't the actual solution to put them into real rest. Total amount of curses is 4 different kinds, which each is assigned to a...

    So random encounter tables made my players encounter a young blue dragon. The fight for them was easy, but the dragon was able to escape. Any ideas how this will bite them in the buttocks?

    Pathfinder 1E How evil is trading a soul?

    Long story short, my players found 4 soul gems (looted from vanquished evil outsiders) with souls inside them. They were willing of selling them away for profit on the basis that the souls in them are evil. How evil of an act are my players committing?

    Pathfinder 1E My players ask about CR...

    ...should I reveal it? They are kinda scared of enemies currently as they have previously dealt with only ogres, mushrooms, goblins and hags. Now they have opportunity to duke it out with a behir but they are scared shitless. Should i reveal the cr to give them an idea? I think its kinda meta...

    Pathfinder 1E Do Family hunters know if they do damage to target bloodline?

    I am a game master, and have created Family hunter (a slayer archetype from horror adventures) adversaries for my players. They have a +1d6 for their sneak attack if targeting the bloodline representative they are hunting. Do the slayers know if they are doing more damage and thus realize that...

    Pathfinder 1E What is the point of self-hindering grab ability?

    Let me elaborate the question a bit more. For example, I am looking at the stat block of an Annis Hag. The annis hag has respectable abilities more towards physical nature; with 3 attacks, damage resistance, spell resistance, rend for bonus damage and grab...why does annis hag have that grab...

    Starfinder Need help with Starfinder lore

    Hello! I've been GMing starfinder for a while now and a problem seems to occur: From time and time again, one of my players seems to assume that computers both in ships and everywhere give answers to every question (just like modern day google does), how does technology function in starfinder...

    D&D 5E 5e build help needed: Resistance and temp hp!

    I've been theorycrafting a tanky character that has a main point of getting constantly temporary hit points and having resistance, DR from heavy armor mastery or both.

    D&D 5E Need help with choices on a build.

    I got bored of playing a wizard and my DM allowed me to switch characters. We're playing out of the abyss. My new build is to be a fighter with polearm master and sentinel feats, however as Polearm master lists few weapons that the feat can be used with, im encountering a dilemma. Should I go...

    D&D 5E Is silence pointless?

    More likely as a ritual. Other peeps at my table say that it has a requirement of constant massing like a bloody idiot, alerting everyone and killing the whole idea of ritualizing said spell, and then cast the spell of silence. I've suggested a houserule of removing V component from silence...

    D&D 5E Necromancers as pcs doable?

    I looked at a topic here whcih was about halforc necromancer, and it made me think about the school. Putting aside the evil argument, can you make it work mechanically? Isnt it odd to play a group of (un)people, besides the other pcs? Have you guys had necromancer pc's and how have you handled it?

    D&D 5E Is it worth taking damage in order to do your stuff?

    This situation came up on our last session: Enemy casts spike growth into a staircase, making it so that everyone except rogue was in the area (he was way back). This became a problem as the rogue didn't want to move forward because he would've received damage, and was too far behind in order to...

    Rip-dungeon-apart character

    I was wondering about a character that would revisit a dungeon the party has visited and take a few extra things that require more time than just spot and grab. Like such a stone slab that was part of an dm intended puzzle and decorated with pictures and ancient text, but must be chiseled out of...
