    Well, I can't find any PrCs that quite feel right for my character, so short of making my own PrC for this game - if the Admin would even allow that - I think I'm out of luck, and might just take Sorcerer in the place of those levels that got freed up.

    I think part of my problem is that, as much as I dislike them, prepared casters fit my concept better.

    I guess I could ask if that's a thing I could do? I've already done it with a base class before, so it's not like I haven't already crossed that line

    Question.

    This is a fragment of the 3.5 feature, Words of Creation

    The Words of Creation doubles the effect of several bardic music abilities:
    Inspire Courage: Double the morale bonus on saving throws against charm and fear and the morale bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls
    However. The Pathfinder update changed the bonus to attack and weapon damage rolls offered from Inspire Courage to now grant people a Competence bonus instead.

    Is it acceptable to have Words of Creation still double the bonus granted by Inspire Courage, despite the change in bonus type?

    Also, is the Radiance House's Pact Magic allowed? Its basically Pathfinder version of the 3.5 Binder class, with achetypes to allow other classes to potentially Bind spirits as well. Such as the Bard having Soul Muse. What about the Moso? (I'm most interested in playing a Blind Character with effectively 40ft Blindsight)

    Yes. High Psionics is in place.

    Well, I nerfed him as much as I could. Which means I got rid of sap master and sap adept. Anyways, here's my first submission.

    Spoiler: Rank 20 NA
    Show
    What's up-What's up-WHAT'S UPPP! It's me, it's ya boi! It is EX-ZERATUL-EX! It's time to cross out those bad hours because I'm back. And you know what that means, it means the X's are silent.



    Spoiler: Story: Stream begins in 3...2...1...
    Show
    Wyatt leaned back in the chair. His trademark goofy grin stretching from ear to ear. "As you know we got the most recent patch noes for DoA! It looks like the dreaded nerf bat is finally on the way in. You knew this was coming, looks like there's no more non lethal sneak attack in our future. But we shall strive on!"

    A soft bling in his left ear had just alerted him to another subscriber. The twentieth of the day. Without missing a beat Wyatt shifted to thanking the man who'd just sent him two dollars in HueBits. "Thank you so much for the subscription Swolezilla925 and welcome to the X'er battalion. But yeah! We're going to keep on pushing. Going to try and break that three-K rating today and try and earn that weapon before the reset. We'll be here all day comin' at you strong with that Pee-Vee-Pee Action that I know y'all love so much, and oooh!" If it were possible Wyatt's grin stretched even wider. "We have just hit ten thousand concurrent viewers in todays stream and it's only been ten minutes. Oh baby why you gotta treat me so nice!"

    Wyatt reached for the controls of the stream deck pressing the five second counter that would activate the split screen between his over the shoulder camera as well as his point of view and then settled the goggles of his gear over his face. "It's that time folks, see you in Dragons of Alnia!" He hit the engage button and everything went dark.

    XzeratulX blinked his eyes as his sight came back to him. As was his habit he checked for the stream details. Oh no! The window wasn't visible, shoot, that usually meant the stream had crashed. HueTube was going to get another angry email in a few minutes, they really ought to treat their partners better.

    "Ok, sorry folks, looks like I gotta reset the stream." XzeratulX closed his eyes and keyed the passphrase that would log out of the gear.

    Nothing happened.

    That was not the strangest thing that happened that day. By a long shot.


    Spoiler: Background and Mechanics
    Show

    XzeratulX the Contender. Former Streamer

    A man from Denver Colorado now embodied in the avatar of a highly min maxed Catfolk assassin. Wyatt Thirsk was a mildly popular streamer on HueTube, wowing audiences with his pvp skill and hyping up the upcoming VR game Dragons of Alnia.

    Unfortunately he did not watch enough Isekai anime to have a really good idea of what is going on. He's mildly frustrated that a lot of npc's seem to think he's the devil incarnated into a murderous cat. But much like Momonga from Overlord a lot of his actions are being proscribed by his character's alignment.

    His goals are two fold, first, figure out how to convert to good while fighting the "natural" instincts of the deadly XzeratulX while also figuring out how to get home. He had a pretty sweet life playing video games and the games have just gotten too real.

    Maybe he'll take up gardening.

    Ooohhhh...

    Dox dragged me here, but now not only do I have to come up with the character, I have to pick back up my other game cuz it's ongoing and has the same theme....

    T.T

    Blame dox, all his fault

    ...and don't try weaseling out halfway again like you have been for the better part of the last decade dox.

    Thank you Morcleon for those rulings and LA assisnments. I'll be taking Ravener, since it fits so well with the concept.

    And without further ado, may i present a returning character that is absolutely a complete expy and self-insert...

    Character isnt completely done, but it'll just be picking spells, maneuvers and the last few feats.

    While I need to devise the specifics, I do have a couple character ideas... If I can get anything done before the game starts, haha.

    REQUESTS:
    * Either version of Forrestfire Studio's Spellburst Savant ( https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...3lfQThtVDRkMU0 )
    * My Frost-Pack Warlock archetype, and with it T.G. Oskar's Warlock which it depends on ( http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showt...Warlock-PEACH) )
    * An LA for Succubus (and whether you want the 3.5 or PF one to be the basis for stats)

    Which ones are accepted will influence which idea I go for. Thank you for your time organizing this!

    General rules question:

    If I have a way to treat a one handed weapon as a light weapon for the purposes of two Weapon fighting, such as with prodigious two weapon fighting feat, do you add half strength to those attacks, or full strength? And how does it work with power attack?

    I hate the Aegis capstone, Perfect Merger. It's pretty much just a once per day full heal for me, but I really shouldn't need much of that. Luckily, Paizo just came out with a new book, Chronicle of Legends, that gives every (first party) class an "alternate capstone" (even Wizard and Cleric, who don't have capstones normally) as well as a number of capstones available to anyone (or anyone who meets the prerequisites).

    Could I replace Perfect Merger with one of these alternate capstones? Specifically, the one I was interested in was this one:

    Perfect Body, Flawless Mind (Ex): At 20th level, the
    character’s endless training and study has resulted in an
    unmatched mastery of the self. The character increases her
    ability scores by a collective total of 8. For example, she can
    increase one score by 8, or one score by 5 and another by 3,
    or four scores by 2, and so on. Characters of any class can
    select this ability
    A friend showed me this book only today, so I can understand if you don't have it. I'm willing on sharing it, though I downloaded it through discord, not through dropbox or anything, so I can't just post a link.

    https://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic-items...fortless-lace/

    You add your strength as per the rules to two weapon fighting. You only add 1.5 times strength if you are wielding the weapon in two hands. You’d need double slice to add your full str to offhand attacks.

    Off hand doesn't normally care what type of weapon it is, if it's an off hand attack it gets 1/2 str. Double Slice increases that to full though. Power attack does specify by weapon type, not by Main hand/Off hand so I'll leave that clarification to our Admin.

    I'm... confused. Why are you talking about 1.5 times strength, and what's with the magic item?

    Hmmm, pondering a submission for this.

    @Admin-

    Would the following class mods be approved, if half the progression was removed?

    Scion of Ashardalon
    Scion of the Ur-Dragon
    Midnight Occultist
    Dracarnum Savant
    Soulfused Transcendant

    And the following bloodline mod?

    It is a thing, you just have to go looking. There were also some mainstream things that were very similar, such as Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.

    Also: It is an option as a class capstone in a vanilla Pathfinder game. See the Occult Oracle mystery. If I didn't find the Illusion(Shadow) spells so tasty, I'd have six free levels in my build for other things.

    Just to clarify: Does this also mean that Orange Prism Ioun Stones, the Bead of Karma on a Strand of Prayer Beads, the Archmage Spell Power option, Voidkin, and all similar things only help casters with less than full caster level (whether half-casters, such as the Ranger, Paladin, and Hexblade, or folks who took dips in things that slow caster progression)?

    3.5e templates with published LAs do use those.

    You may intentionally craft cursed items.
    Thanks; although I'm down to using just a single template... changed my mind about how much optimization I wanted to use. One template, three base classes, one PrC.

    The Shadow Necromancy and Shadow Structure spell lines are approved!

    Voidkin is approved.
    Cool... can I get around the Arcane Enlightenment problem via Arcane Preparation (Complete Arcane page 73; requires spontaneous arcane casting to qualify, but just uses "your spell slots" in the benefits text)?
    Of course, by the time I finish this post, it will already be obsolete. C'est la vie.

    Hot, gonna go Evangelist of Torag while I have the item crafting feats I don't use at first and Vine Leshy Mutant (was a dwarf before the update, ended up glitching something fierce due to logging out in the middle of the swamp, decided it was a feature and not a bug). Will do a more proper update...tonight honestly.

    For Mutant:
    Boons: Celerity, Sealed Mind, Telepathy, SLA: Mirror Image, Dominate Person, Charm Monster.
    Deformities: Fractured Mind, Poor Ability (Charisma).
    Total Modifiers:
    -2 Strength, +0 Dexterity, +6 Constitution, -4 Intelligence, +6 Wisdom, -4 Charisma.

    Ok, I've still got some mechanical work to be done (Feats, maneuvers, sphere talents and the like) but the class chassis and such is finished enough to post up.

    Spoiler: Jorge Background
    Show

    Jorge's mother is a second generation immigrant of farm laborers from Mexico who settled in the farms and orchards of central Washington. Lucielia married Tyler Miller, the owner of several local orchards and specialty farms. Jorge is an only child with debilitating allergies to nearly everything in the natural world. Growing up in a region known for farming and school sports this left him isolated and friendless.

    As he grew Jorge became enamored with the emo, goth and death metal culture but his mother would have none of it, fearing the chemicals in cosmetics and dyes would harm her precious child. Overprotective in every sense except herself she thoroughly paddled Jorge with her sandal when he snuck some black nail polish into the house. With few prospects for living his dream of being Hardcore, no talent for sports of even capability to remain healthy while being outdoors for extended periods of time he retreated to online gaming.

    With his many health concerns he completed high school online from home. Smart enough to zip through the scholastic content with little effort, he was able to devote entirely unhealthy amounts of time to gaming. He has considered streaming many times, but can never bring himself to go through with it 'Maybe if I was Hardcore I could do it, but no one wants to watch a pudgy half Mexican!' Instead he began creating content for his own gaming blog. Maps, guides, strategies, mods and other content released by text so that no one can see how un-Hardcore he actually is.

    Jorge was able to make enough with his content creation to keep his rig up to date and when Dragons of Alnia started up their first Closed Beta he was there from the second the servers came online. Now finished with school and having no interests or ambitions beyond playing games he was the first to provide non-video format content for DoA. Video guides are great, but sometimes a picture (or a map!) is worth a thousand words.

    Spoiler: Oblivion
    Show







    Oblivion is so edgy he has to be careful not to cut himself when he looks in the mirror. If it's in the game, he's done it and was probably one of the first. He has combined the versatility of the Sage chassis with the Harbringer and became even MOAR HARDCORE!!!! with the addition of the newly released Eclipse class and third parallel class track! This will take Oblivion to previously unreachable levels of badassdom on his quest to be the darkest Shadow Lord to ever save the miserable peasants of Alnia!


    20 Eclipse / 10 Harbinger, Sage 10 Trinity Knight and Angel, Level 20, Init 5, HP / , DR 5/-, Speed 50

    I can't be sure without messaging the dev team, but I'm 99% sure that this is referring to spellcaster level, not caster level. IE, if you are a sorcerer 20//bard 10/archmage 10, if you apply the archmage casting to your sorcerer levels (which you Can Do!) you still only have spells known/per day as a 20th level caster.

    So about variant multiclassing.

    The wizard, I assume does not gain the ability to cast arcane scrolls. Let me know if I am wrong there.

    More importantly they select a scroll, can I pick a sub school like Foresight or an elemental school like air?

    Is there a feat, homebrew or otherwise, that allows you to combine your familiar with your animal companion? I am strongly considering making a more caster based character and mixing it with harbinger.

    Oh really? I must admit that catches my interest, is thercany chance I might be able to a look? Especially as some of the capstones I'm looking at aren't too interesting either, and I wouldn't mind more variety and flexibility in my choices.

    That makes two of a kind.

    Could I replace Perfect Merger with one of these alternate capstones? Specifically, the one I was interested in was this one:

    Perfect Body, Flawless Mind (Ex): At 20th level, the
    character’s endless training and study has resulted in an
    unmatched mastery of the self. The character increases her
    ability scores by a collective total of 8. For example, she can
    increase one score by 8, or one score by 5 and another by 3,
    or four scores by 2, and so on. Characters of any class can
    select this ability
    A friend showed me this book only today, so I can understand if you don't have it. I'm willing on sharing it, though I downloaded it through discord, not through dropbox or anything, so I can't just post a link.
    I would love to get rid of my very bad capstone for Zealot. I think I will just stick with this build for the most part. I think I let myself get swept up in something that wasn't my focus to begin with. Just need to remember that I am a healer and buffer first. From what it looks like no one is going to miss me not allowing them to do more damage.

    That being said, @Morcleon the Zealot gets an ability at 4th level and 8th level called Mission

    http://www.d20pfsrd.com/alternative-...lasses/zealot/

    Could I take say, the Living Bastion ability from the Protection mission at level 4 and then take Storm of Steel ability from the destruction mission at level 8?

    I want to protec, but also atac

    Yeah, same.

    Need to remember that this is a pretty low OP Tristalt game, so an Occultist Arcanist using all of the tricks and metamagic shenanigans a summoner can use, isn't the best of plans.

    Best to simply focus on buffing and battlefield manipulation. I'll leave the healing to others, though I might still pick up an ability or two to help out. We'll see.

    Non specific class capstones are as follows:

    Quote Originally Posted by Chronicle of Legends

    The following capstone abilities are for characters who meet the specifications listed in the text for each.

    Arch-Familiar (Su): At 20th level, the character’s familiar is smarter and savvier than plenty of adventurers—and also more dangerous! The familiar’s Intelligence increases by 5, and it gains 12 spells levels’ worth of spell-like abilities (for example, three daily castings of greater invisibility), drawn from spells its master can cast and using its master’s caster levels, DCs, and so forth. This capstone is available to any class with a familiar.

    The Boss (Ex): At 20th level, the character has becomemore than just a lone hero—she has become one of the senior figures of her field, with powers and responsibilities to match. The character becomes one of the leading figures in some manner of group or organization, as appropriate to the campaign and the setting. A wizard might become the dean of an arcane university or mages’ guild, a fighter could command a mercenary army or a city guard, a cleric might lead a major temple or her own sect, and so forth. The player and the GM should work together to determine the specifics. The character gains the Leadership feat if she does not already have it, and the number of followers that the feat grants is multiplied by 10 (although depending on the campaign and setting, the position may grant other powers as well). If multiple characters in a party select this capstone, the GM may consider pooling them to grant the players a particularly large and powerful organization, such as a small kingdom. Characters of any class can select this ability.

    Deep Magics (Su): At 20th level, the character’s repertoire of spells deepens dramatically. She gains an additional spell known for each spell level she can cast. A character of any class with spells known can select this capstone.

    Great Beast (Su): At 20th level, the character’s animal companion is a paragon of its kind—a hero and legend in its own right. The animal companion’s Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, and Wisdom scores each increase by 4. This capstone is available to any class with an animal companion.

    Ki Sage (Su): At 20th level, the character is fully attuned to his own body and the ki that flows within. The character gains two ki powers from those available to the unchained monk, treating his character level as his monk level for the purpose of any requirements. In addition, his ki pool increases by four. This capstone is available to any class with a ki pool.

    Old Dog, New Tricks (Ex): At 20th level, the character shows that a true warrior always has one more surprise the enemy hasn’t seen. The character gains four combat feats. This capstone is available to characters of any class that gains at least four bonus combat feats.

    Perfect Body, Flawless Mind (Ex): At 20th level, the character’s endless training and study has resulted in an unmatched mastery of the self. The character increases her ability scores by a collective total of 8. For example, she can increase one score by 8, or one score by 5 and another by 3, or four scores by 2, and so on. Characters of any class can select this ability.

    The Right Spot (Ex): At 20th level, the character can hit an opponent’s weak spot effortlessly. Once per round, the character can apply her sneak attack damage to an attack, even if the target is not flanked or denied its Dexterity bonus to AC. This does not allow the character to sneak attack targets that are immune to sneak attacks (such as oozes). This capstone is available for any class with the sneak attack class feature.

    Soul Channel (Su): At 20th level, the character can channel energy six additional times per day, and her channel energy dice increase by one step. This capstone is available to characters with the channel energy class feature.

    Walking Library (Ex): At 20th level, the character becomes a small, mobile athenaeum of occult scraps and lore. The character adds 100 spell levels’ worth of spells to his spellbook or familiar and gains a +4 insight bonus on all Knowledge skills. Characters of any class that prepares spells from a spellbook or familiar can select this ability.

    With This Sword (Ex): At 20th level, the character’s blade has become as well-known as the character herself. The character selects one item she has—preferably something iconic and significant, such as a weapon or arcane bond. The item becomes a minor artifact and gains 100,000 gp worth of new powers. The player and the GM should work together to select the new powers, with an eye towards making something memorable yet campaign-appropriate. Characters of any class can select this ability.

    Won’t Stay Dead (Ex): At 20th level, the character becomes a paragon of resilience. Once per week, if the character is killed, petrified, or otherwise removed from play, the character manages to survive by some dint of skill or luck and returns at the end of the combat or the scene (GM’s discretion). The player and the GM should work together to ensure that the method of the character’s survival is at least vaguely plausible, if unlikely. Characters of any class can select this ability.
    If anybody wants to see the class specific alternate capstones, just let me know which class you're interested in. Again though, only the 1st party Paizo classes have alternate capstones.

    I would personally like to give chronicles of legends a read.

    For what is worth "with this sword" would be a very nice capstone for soulknife / aegis if applied to mindblade / astral suit.

    Those are pretty great.

    Was looking for some other powers to use to buff the party and had a look at energy missile.

    So you could take a single tracked psion9/harbinger1/awakened blade 10

    Orange prism ion stone and practiced manifest to bring your Manifester level to 20.

    Practiced initiator to bring your Initiator level to 17

    step 1: Use the Aura of Shared Misery stance. Swift action to claim, using grasp of darkness feat and malevolence feat. All four Balor's are cursed.

    step 2: Take twinned power and overchannel energy missile while expending your focus. Make sure you use sonic damage.

    step 3: Repeat step 2. You can do this since awakened blade gives you deep focus for a second psionic focus. Or you can use psicrystal containment. Edit: I forgot, USE RIVEN HOURGLASS

    It doesn't look to be the same crazy damage people stated before. But it is certainly enough to take care of even as much as FIVE Balor Lord's. They should probably invest in some ear muffs.

    edit: I am so using this in a game. Even at lower levels it is just yikes.

    Say, Admin, would there be a chance for me to get rid of the features of Blacksmith that don't apply to Iron Chef (Thunderous Blows, Skilled Craftsman, Artisan Savant, Reforge) and get something more suitable for a chef?

    At the moment I don't have any real ideas beyond maybe some things from Scholar (I like the idea of Slime Savant if only because I like the picture of treating oozes and plants like they're my pets) but it may be more fitting to just reflavor things (Skilled Craftsman does Profession (Chef) for making magical potions and restores hit points to plants/oozes instead of objects, Artisan Savant grants Brew Potions and Craft Oozes, Reforge lets me ritual stuff for plants/oozes). If you're okay with it then I can try and come up with something more fitting.


    General Theme with my menus is gonna be meats, fungi, and booze. General Temptation will be an American Dad that just talks about grilling all the time.
