    PF Age of Worms questions for Pathfinder

    Hi all, So I am just now coming to Pathfinder. As a former 3.X DM who got burned out, I stopped playing d20 systems til 4E came out. I've been running that since then and have loved it. However, I've missed some of the crunchiness of the 3.X game. My players love Pathfinder. I have been...

    Retraining Powers - Need help

    So I asked my group for updated character sheets, so I could have a backup copy in case anyone was out a game. I haven't done this since we first started, as most of the time we ran "generic" replacements or had the absent player's character out of harms way. I got my Fighter's character sheet...

    Feywild and the Forgotten Realms Cosmos

    Quick question concerning the Feywild. Since it is listed as a parallel world to the prime material, and in this case Abeir-Toril, do the Dieties of the Realms have influence here? Are they worshiped? I have a story involving Shar and Selune with my party in the middle. They have currently...

    Need help: Stealth/skill check in combat

    I'm having a senior moment this morning, I had a player try to basically hide in plain sight(or rather behind a large cauldron) in combat. For the life of me, I cannot remember if it is a move action to use a skill or a standard or what have you. I looked it up and didn't see it. Now this...

    Monster question: Fire Beetle Fire Spray incur OA?

    This came up last night. In the 3 levels of gaming we've done(roughly 10 sessions) this hasn't come up. I ruled that it would draw an opportunity attack because it is an area attack. The dragonborn fighter was taking on a fire beetle. On the beetle's turn, it did it's close blast Fire Spray...

    Confused about Commanding a Beast Companion

    So I run a 4e game every other week. I let one of my players create a beast master with raptor. According to his interpretation he and the bird can move at the same time, if he chooses. Ok. Taking this logic, then he could then have either or be on Defend. Correct? But if this is not the...

    Dungeon Delve question

    If this is the wrong place for this, please move. That being said. I like the book, and am going to use Delve 3 Orc Stronghold this week. But I'm confused about the "hilltop keep". It's referred to as a keep and as a "lord's" home. Which is it? If it's a keep, then I can see it as is fine...

    Help. I can't seem to find exactly what the effects of dominate are? Looking in the MM, I find that the description in the Aboleth write up doesn't explain it. Either that, or I've overlooked it. Can someone point me in the right direction, please? Thanks.

    Need help with a possible skill challenge

    Hey all, I have an upcoming game where the PC's have followed the tracks of a band of goblin raiders back to their lair. This "lair" has been mentioned/referred to for some time in found notes and letters. It's a variant on the Barrow of the Ogre King from the FRCS. Basically, they've...

    Default setting-is there more?

    Ok, I like the default setting alot more than I would have thought. With the addition of Heathen from the WotC site, it spurred my interest for more info on this world. A larger map of the world would be great. In short, more baby, more!! Here's the area's/publications I know that have some...

    GM's-Are you ever overwhelmed on which world to run?

    So I haven't run a consistent campaign in almost 2 years now. Work, family... life in general have kept me from doing so. But now my kids are getting older and may even play if I start running again. I find myself overwhelmed with gaming options. There are so many worlds to choose from, I...

    Justifiers campaign? A full list of Moreaus?

    So I was visiting with an old friend over the Christmas holidays and we started talking about games we'd wish they'd remake. We started talking about Justifiers. We both know Key20 plans on redoing it at somepoint in the far future. :D So in our talks we discussed adapting it to other systems...

    Touch attacks...

    Ok. I need some help with the basic idea of a touch attack that one of my pc's has been attempting to do. He wants to be able to basically jab his thumb(s) in a person's eye socket to blind/damage/irrate them in combat. (he's an oathsworn in the Arcana Unearthed, a sort of monk-like warrior)...

    Northern Crown RPG - Do I need both books?

    I'm on a limited budget this month. Are both books completely essential for running in this setting? Is one more the Players handbook and the other a GM guide? I was under that impression, but now I'm not so sure. Help.

    On the cover of the 3.0 book Defenders of the Faith, what is that goat man looking critter? I have no idea. Other than he looks like a GW Beastman. I would love to incorporate a race of them in my current game and if this is a pre-written race, heck, less work for me.(nice run on sentence)...

    No subdual Knockout possible?

    I enjoy using the subdual damage rules, but... Are there rules in place that call for immediate knockout's or subduals, other than a crit? I mean, a sap/blackjack doesn't do that much in subdual, so how does one "whack" someone from behind and knock them out with one strike other than a DM...
