    Big Bad Evil Melee Guy

    Generally, I've seen at least, the BBEG(Big Bad Evil Guy) for a campaign is a wizard, cleric, dragon or something that can cast spells, lots of them. And why not? A high level wizard is the perfect "Oh sh*t" enemy for party. AoE spells, high DPR and enough protection spells to keep anyone from...

    Masterwork Ring/Amulet

    I'm planning a campaign where, at the beginning, the players are inducted into a "secret" organization of elite warriors to battle whatever evil I eventually dream up. I know, awesome planning ahead right? Anyway, I want this to be loosely based on Dragon Age Origins and I was thinking about...

    New Magic Ring

    When I was first learning to play DnD (and being totally taken advantage of) and getting my feet wet with DMing, the person who taught me to play crafted this ring for his character. This ring, he said, would, every six seconds, a combat round, make a 5x5 block of stone (AC 3, Hardness 8, 225...

    The Army

    As I may have let on in previous threads/posts I'm interested in doing mass combat and such in my campaigns. Now everyone knows that PCs should not be up on the wall fighting like common foot soldiers, they should be sneaking out of the city and setting fire to siege weapons and attacking the...

    Mass + Spellcraft = Greater?

    While I was building my latest wizardy character and picking out certain spells I'm planning on taking I was looking at the enhancement spells like Eagle's Splendor and Cat's Grace etc. and I've noticed that, even though they're not blowing tons of stuff up they're very good spells (excellent...

    Undead Armys

    I'm designing a Wizard turned Lich main boss for an undead campaign I'm running in a homebrew setting. At the end it's supposed to culminate in a Minas Tirith/ Helm's Deep style siege with the Wizard/Lich leading his undead army. I'm making him level 15 and his army is mostly comprised of normal...

    Prestige Class Quests

    Now before the flaming begins, I know that taking a prestige class doesn't mean your Rogue wakes up one day and becomes a Duelist. It's a representation of how much power your rogue has gained that they now have the abilities of a first level Duelist, or whatever class and prestige class you...

    Magus Arcane Spell Chance Faliure

    I've got an 8th level Magus who recently lost his Breastplate. Long story, boring ending. In the party's latest loot table though there is a set of +1 Full Plate. I can't use this with no spell failure until level 13 and since we play with slow XP progression that could be a while. What I want...

    Holy Water Ammo

    I had a thought today while I was at work. I was going through my last quest in the undead campaign I'm running and going over the strategy my paladin set up in the town that was being attacked by undead... flaming skeletons to be exact... and the main strategy was gratuitous use of holy water...

    Dragon Disicple in Full Plate?

    I have an idea for a character in an upcoming campaign and I'd like some feedback on this theory I have. First thing you do is you build your character exactly how you would build a Fighter. High STR and CON etc. The only things you have to do is put as many points in Knowledge Arcana as you...

    Holy Avenger Artifact

    It could just be because my playstyle tends towards the whole "dragon battle on a hilltop" style but I've found something in the magic items section, that, for whatever reason, just rubs me the wrong way. The Holy Avenger is a named magical item. And for a paladin it's a very good, very strong...

    Horror Help

    I'm running a horror campaign, which means a ton of undead and such. I have a good premise set up. A long ago defeated necromancer wasn't as defeated as people thought and now he's back and trying to hunt down the tools to help him conqueror/ destroy the world. Eventually he's going to assault...

    Random Treasure Tables...

    ...or rather a lack thereof. I got a copy of the GameMastery Guide over the weekend and as I was reading through it I was amazed by all the tables. They have tables for almost everything. Using the tables in it, you can create a full dungeon crawl, essentially an entire gaming session in about...

    Human Form Dragons

    First off, I don't know if this carried over into Pathfinder (although the Draconic Sorcerer Bloodline certainly makes it seem so) but I have a question about dragons in the "human" form. We never really touched on the subject in our 3.5 games since our wonderful DM did everything he could to...

    Military Campaign

    I'm considering running a military campaign for my next campaign. The players in a special forces unit etc. we're Pathfinder but I'm adapting the stuff from 3.5s Complete Warrior and I've got a lot of the trouble spots figured out but one is still bothering me. Treasure. Although the players...

    Paladin Treasure

    I'm really into role-playing my characters, more so than most people in my group. We're starting a new campaign and I just got done fleshing out my Dwarf Paladin Angus the Ashbringer (if there are any WoW fans out there I hope you get the reference). I fitted him with his gear and I added little...

    Half-Breed

    I have a, what I think, is a nifty idea for a PC in a Pathfinder campaign I'm running that I'd like to see an impartial view on. The PC is a Female Sorcerer with a Celestial bloodline. It's been established that, while her mother is mortal, her father is a solar angel. To me, it makes sense...

    Mounted Combat

    Okay, I have been wondering about this for a very long time and I'm finally sick of not getting a straight answer from anyone or trying to make up my own house rules about this. I know how to attack while mounted, it's spelled out in the rules very simply. But what I can't figure out, and...
