    So, Im back with my more normally powered grappler. one side is divine minion/MoMF, another one is a dread with lots of stacking feats, and the last one is a monk who also stacks tons of feats. the character is an intimidator-grappler, with Shapeshifting capabilities + various subsystem uses (psionics, veilweaving, ki, PoW maneuvers)

    I am still working on a backstory, but the general idea is some sort of a reincarnated champion who channels the power of spirits.

    They were a reincarnated champion before being sucked into a vr game?

    @Admin Morcleon

    Requesting LA conversion to:

    - Holy Creature template
    - Half-Celestial template
    - Celestial-Blessed template
    - Angelic Vessel
    - Divine Champion

    Will choose depending on the converted LA, If Angelic Vessel + Celestial Blessed + Divine Champ then it would be a Character that has a Celestial being inside her and provides and manifest his powers thru her and this being can take control of the body or switch places with her when convenient.

    I've never tried an isekai.

    Going to have to switch up my submission style a bit.

    Let me know if you have a preference Morcleon. I don't know if I have the fortitude to do multiples off this list.

    Concept 1: The Streamer. sneaky melee archetype. spent a lot of time during the beta streaming pvp matches and subsequently one of the highest ranked arena players on the server.

    Concept 2: The Reputation Grinder. Charismatic hero archetype. In reality a slightly overweight middle aged otaku man living in Colorado. Spent a lot of time during closed beta trying to finish every quest and raise his reputations with all the in game factions.

    Concept 3: The Speed Hacker. Really really fast archetype. Playing mostly at odd hours to accommodate his busy work schedule he has been using speed hacks and collision detection hacks to move around the world more quickly. His justification is that the world is too big to get to different encounters quickly. The inciting incident happens before he can be banned from the game however.

    Nah, it's an in-character RP. Im planning on a guy focused on storytelling, meta-wise

    GM-can I homebrew a feat that allows monk levels to stack the purpose of wildshape HD? something like "Nature's ascetic", similar to other dnd 3.5 multiclass feats

    Does anyone know a way to get extra swift actions besides Ruby Knight Vindicator? It's looking like my character is gonna end up pretty swift actions heavy. I know that there's the Unnatural Swiftness feat in the epic feats that have been allowed, but I'd have to wait until 24 for that

    @Admin-

    Divine minion into MoMF is allowed, right? I know it's not RAW, but It's a pretty common ruling in that level of games.

    I *think* the idea is that we are statting out our in game character and that our actual person won't ever come into play so isn't going to need to be written up, but I don't think that's been explicitly confirmed one way or the other.
    A man who dies fighting with his principles intact dies in glory. To expect enemies to follow the same code of honor defiles that honor, reducing it to a set of arbitrary rules.

    Assuming my request for a homebrew feat would be denied, my build is going to look like this-

    Divine minion 1/MoMF 10/scaled horror 1/black blood cultist 8//monk (various archetypes-enlightened, quinggong, hungry ghost, etc.) 11/WS advancing prcs 9//Dread (various archetypes-fearmonger, nightmare, nightmare constructor, wild huntmaster)/evanglist 10

    the character is focused on shapeshifting for utility, and utilizes fear effects and grappling while in combat.

    Okay. So. Just making sure I understand everything here:

    Starting Level 20. Tristalt. All d20pfsrd material allowed (which I'm not sure includes Sphere's?). Custom Archetypes allowed (which is bloody powerful). Only Tier 2 or higher class. 1 feat per level (again, very strong)... and unlimited gold...?

    I'm interested for sure, and I will make a character once I'm done with my Hand of Vecana character... but I fully admit I'm confused about the character creation rules, and the optimization level expected?

    - Custom Archetypes (should be + one free extra feature from an archetype, need to check with admin)
    - Spheres included
    - Only one Tier 2+ class in your build
    - 880K gold

    Okay so I want to ask how the spheres of power blacksmith's capstone works, Smith’s Masterpiece. Is it a free item, or what not? As it is a +13 item and pathfinder doesn't have magic weapons of +13 by default, basically how does it work?

    " This ability supersedes the normal restriction preventing equipment from exceeding a total enhancement bonus of +10 including class abilities "

    The Blacksmith gave himself a +5 weapon with abilities worth +8, totally legal for me

    It overrides the normal +10 limit. It has a +5 enhancement bonus, and then you can choose +8 worth of special abilities to apply to it

    Lol, I guess I asked my question poorly. Is the masterpiece a free item? On one hand that seems broken on the other hand, a free item is nothing compared to some other capstones.

    It seems to imply that you've been saving up the materials as you've leveled, so I think it is free

    So the Balor is our optimization point?

    Do they benefit from having feats per hd and full hp like us? Because if they don't even a vanilla 20th level character is gonna kick their butts. I want that Balor to have the martial training feat line and some sweet counters!!! It's only fair since the poor thing works so hard to be big and scary!!

    This looks fun. Going to run a necromancer since I wuv my undead and have one partially completed. :P

    A few Qs.

    1) It looks like 3.5 is open-ish so is Uttercold Assault Necromancer okay? Note that you cna potentially get epic undead creation feats early as far as I can tell...

    2) I see the LA for vamp and vamp lord. What about Ghost? There is a 3.5 template class for it as a guide. Penanggalen? Or, Undead Lord?

    3) Similiarly I see Dread Emperor looks like its approved. I do note that if you take an undead template it makes entry possible pre 21, which may well not be your intention at all so best bring it up...

    Edit added: While I am at it.

    4) Fell Energy Spell?

    You can't get into it early. Epic prestige classes require you to already be epic to enter them, regardless if you meet the prerequisites. We'll have to wait until we level in-game

    Here's the relevant text from the ELH:

    Awkwardly, if we follow rules to the exact letter, we wouldn't be able to take epic Prcs until level 22, since it states that you must already be epic, and level 20 characters aren't epic.

    Fortunately, no one follows the rules that way, because that'd be weird

    Update: So I didn't sleep. Filled in most of my build list and am in the process of polishing and filling in the gaps. Does anyone recommend switching monk to unchained?
    If this turns out not to be optimized enough for the next phase I can switch thrallherd for elocater before things go live...

    No, but the full lore of the game will be released soon.

    Please link Slithilar, as we have been unable to find the creature in question. Perhaps you misspelled it, or the wiki entry is incorrect?

    Are enhancement bonuses considered part of the armor bonus of a suit of armor for the purposes of this class feature?:


    Also, what size are parties in the new patch?

    Edit: another question: since pathfinder changes how concentration works, how are we handling the Diamond Mind ToB discipline?

    Calculating Combatant lets me add my Int score to my AC instead of Dex. Then, when I get Genius Maneuvers, I get to add both. Is that total subject to the max Dex bonus of my armor, or is only Dex subject and I always add my full Int bonus?

    The Tactician Aspect Ability 'Victor of a Thousand Battles' gives my character the Bardic Knowledge ability. Given that Grod's Fighter was originally designed for 3.5 content, does it grant me the 3.5 version or the PF version of the ability?
    Keen Intellect is approved!

    Artisan Crafting is approved!

    Please elaborate? We are unsure which class feature you are referring to.

    Yes, Diamond Mind will now use the Autohypnosis skill. Any class that has access to Diamond Mind now receives Autohypnosis as a class skill.

    Only your Dex bonus is subject to the Max Dex of your armor.

    It will grant the updated Pathfinder expansion version.

    Yes, you will suffer the normal penalties for being at 0 HP and must make all haste toward returning to your coffin.

    No. See the dev note on Leadership and similar. The recent feat increase should be more than enough for your feat needs.

    In addition, I would like to request the following templates:

    Siabrae
    and
    Ravener

    Although I would like to request a clarification for the Ravener - Since i'll most likely be pairing it with the Druid class (which has no spells known) and I would like to keep the ability to cast spells, would you allow the Soul Magic ability to cast Druid spells off the spell list, or would it be better to ignore that ability entirely? Also, since the Draconic Exemplar class has a large number of abilities that key off constitution, can these change these to work with Charisma if the character becomes undead through taking Ravener?

    Finally, is there a source link/book for the Lost Traditions Feat?
    Those Ki Feats are approved!

    While both Siabrae and Ravener are approved, it would not be possible to take them simultaneously. Ravener requires you to be a true dragon and Siabrae requires a ritual that requires the recipient of the template to be living. Taking the former before the latter does not work because the latter requires a living (and thus non-undead) creature. Vice versa does not work because the former requires you to be a dragon (and thus non-undead). Additionally, the fluff of Ravener does not work for an undead creature.

    Lost Traditions is from the modpack Bastards and Bloodlines. While an old one, this particular gem was good enough that we're bringing it forward into the modern game.

    I would like to play an aegis (host of heroes) 20 // soulknife (living legend) 20 // wizard (psychic mage) 5 // metamind 5 // psicrystal imprinter 10.

    Could I use my psicrystal as the spellbook (given psicrystal imprinter it might be aligned with fluff)? Alternatively would it be okay to use VMC to access a witch's familiar? I would rather not deal with spellbooks if I can avoid it.

    Is this a high psionics game? (does the soulknife get the gifted blade archetype for free)

    What's the magic psionic transparency? (asking for probably obvious reasons)
    Dreamscarred Press' Psionics expansion is in the wiki and is pre-approved.

    You may use your psicrystal as your spellbook, though all requirements and mechanics of a spellbook (spell preparation time, time and cost of scribing, destruction, etc) will still apply.

    Yes, this would be considered a high psionics game (and high other things game as well).

    Detect effects, dispel effects, and Resistance abilities affect each other. If a spell or power mentions "spells" or "powers", it affects the other as well unless explicitly noted otherwise.

    It seems cohorts are allowed via leadership as well? What rules are they using as far as generating scores and classes? Are they tristalt as well? My characters cohort is a hunk of metal that she sometimes swings around when she is in a foul mood.
    Yes, you are reading the Archetype Unlock rules correctly. You may switch out the capstone for the one ability, but you must accept the entire ability as-is.

    While Bard is technically a flexible spellcaster, we intended for that limitation to apply to those with access to 9th level spells only.

    There is no limitation for individual items so long as the total does not exceed 880,000 gp.

    Detect effects, dispel effects, and Resistance abilities affect each other. If a spell or power mentions "spells" or "powers", it affects the other as well unless explicitly noted otherwise.

    Athasian Human is allowed at LA +2.

    - Holy Creature template
    - Half-Celestial template
    - Celestial-Blessed template
    - Angelic Vessel
    - Divine Champion
    Holy Creature: +4
    Half-Celestial: +6
    Celestial-Blessed: Please indicate which celestial you wish to be blessed by.
    Angelic Vessel and Divine Champion: No. These templates give benefits more fitting of a class than a template.

    Concept 1: The Streamer. sneaky melee archetype. spent a lot of time during the beta streaming pvp matches and subsequently one of the highest ranked arena players on the server.

    Concept 2: The Reputation Grinder. Charismatic hero archetype. In reality a slightly overweight middle aged otaku man living in Colorado. Spent a lot of time during closed beta trying to finish every quest and raise his reputations with all the in game factions.

    Concept 3: The Speed Hacker. Really really fast archetype. Playing mostly at odd hours to accommodate his busy work schedule he has been using speed hacks and collision detection hacks to move around the world more quickly. His justification is that the world is too big to get to different encounters quickly. The inciting incident happens before he can be banned from the game however.
    No preference!

    Yes, that is approved!

    Smith's Masterpiece is a free weapon!

    Do they benefit from having feats per hd and full hp like us? Because if they don't even a vanilla 20th level character is gonna kick their butts. I want that Balor to have the martial training feat line and some sweet counters!!! It's only fair since the poor thing works so hard to be big and scary!!
    The wiki entries for monsters are only the baseline for them. Most of the stronger monsters will have customizations applied depending on their circumstance and the nature of the plot.

    2) I see the LA for vamp and vamp lord. What about Ghost? There is a 3.5 template class for it as a guide. Penanggalen? Or, Undead Lord?

    3) Similiarly I see Dread Emperor looks like its approved. I do note that if you take an undead template it makes entry possible pre 21, which may well not be your intention at all so best bring it up...

    Edit added: While I am at it.

    4) Fell Energy Spell?
    Uttercold Assault Necromancer is not approved (see above note on Leadership and similar abilities).

    Ghost: +5 (additional +1 if Malevolence is taken)
    Penanggalen: +3 (no Create Spawn)
    Undead Lord: +4 (no Create Spawn)

    All epic material is available only to characters of level 21+.

    Fell Energy Spell is approved.

    Fortunately, no one follows the rules that way, because that'd be weird
    Indeed. Upon reaching their 21st level, characters may begin using level 21+. We did word things rather oddly and can definitely see how it could have been misinterpreted. Rest assured that it will make sense once the game is live!

    This one here:

    Quote Originally Posted by Way of the Warrior
    Armor Usage - A Warlord that chooses Armor Usage increases the armor bonus of any type of armor he wears by +1 at 3rd level and an additional +1 every four levels thereafter.

    Further, when a Warlord wears armor he gains Damage Reduction depending on the Armor Type. Heavy and Medium armor grant the Warlord DR X/adamantine where X equals twice the armor bonus; Light armor grants the Warlord DR X/adamantine where X equals the armor bonus. If a Warlord wears adamantine armor this becomes DR X/--. This DR stacks with any existing DR you possess of the same type.

    Finally, while wearing armor a Warlord reduces the armor check penalty by 1 and increases an armor's max Dex bonus by 1 for each +1 to AC he would normally gain from this ability.
    So full plate(which has a +9 bonus, ignoring the extra bonus from the first paragraph) would give DR 18/adamantine. Would +5 full plate(which has a +14 bonus) then have DR 28/adamantine, or would it remain at the lower value?

    I also have some additional feat requests from Way of the Warrior:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Parry
    Swift Counterattack
    Sliding Counterattack
    Baffling Counterattack

    These will likely go into one of my fighting styles, as a sort of Duelist theme

    Mighty Grip
    Unstoppable Strike
    Ultimate Grip
    Titan's Grip

    STEVE SMASH
    For another fighting style, when I just need damage

    Deflect Ray
    Slashspell

    For yet another fighting style(I get 7 of the damn things)
    This one would be a magekiller style. Need a way to deal with them somehow

    Second Wind
    Shrug Off
    Unparalleled Toughness

    For when I need to go turtle mode when I'm inevitably getting my ass handed to me. Probably part of a sword and board style. Speaking of which:

    Phalanx Guard
    Indomitable Bulwark
    Warrior Wall
    Plow and Trample

    For when I want to hurt people with a tower shield

    Last set:
    Glorymonger
    Inspiring Leader
    Beacon of Hope
    Radiant Warleader

    Another fighting style, in combat healing is great.

    Sorry for making you read through all those


    Do my 'Bladelord' initiator levels count as martial disciple levels for the purposes of Path of War's Advanced Study feat? If not, can I use Tome of Battle's Martial Study feat to select maneuvers from a Path of War discipline?

    Here's the WIP sheet for Zak Firebrand

    Thank you

    I did misspell Silthilar, it's from the Lords of Madness DLC but probably won't be pursued due to it's +8 LA (the link I had found online conveniently forgot roughly a quarter of the information, including ability scores and I didn't notice it at first) and 9 RHD.

    I assume something like Chyzaedu are frowned upon as well.
    What about things like Nagas, perhaps with Change Shape? Or BEEEEEEE-Man?
    Really just thinking Aberrations because of accidentally getting glitched when the game got updated.

    If the game system can't really render things that aren't meant to be then maybe just something like a Vulpinal?

    And was there any news on Gourmend being added this patch or nah?

    Back on my normal work schedule. Updates will happen when I can finangle them at work or on my nights off on Monday and Friday (unless I get caught up doing something else).

    Your understanding is appreciated.

    @ admin Master list of requests. Note that not all of these classes/material would be used for the same concept. Since it looks like I'll be making all three since I'm a waffler and you don't have a preference. Pray for me

    The Channeler

    Unarmored Specialist, and its improved version

    The Marshal. Miniatures Handbook (technically 3.0 material)

    The Courtier. Rokugan (technically 3.0 material. gains leadership which has been patched out)

    The Warhulk. Miniatures Handbook (technically 3.0 material)

    Catfolk. Races of the Wild.

    The Serene Barbarian

    In the unspeakable event that the game somehow Does level up:
    These epic warlock feats
    All Hail Fun!

    Morcleon, you have really outdone yourself this time. You've won several internets here!

    While both Siabrae and Ravener are approved, it would not be possible to take them simultaneously. Ravener requires you to be a true dragon and Siabrae requires a ritual that requires the recipient of the template to be living. Taking the former before the latter does not work because the latter requires a living (and thus non-undead) creature. Vice versa does not work because the former requires you to be a dragon (and thus non-undead). Additionally, the fluff of Ravener does not work for an undead creature.

    Lost Traditions is from the modpack Bastards and Bloodlines. While an old one, this particular gem was good enough that we're bringing it forward into the modern game.
    Understood, I'll have to pick one of the templates, although I have further questions:

    What is the LA for Siabrae and Ravener?

    How does the Ravener Soul magic ability interact with non-spontaneous spellcasting classes?

    Does becoming Undead change abilities that key off constitution, similar to how Fortitude and hp is calculated differently?
    EDIT: It's taken this long for me to read the Undead page that says "No Constitution score. Undead use their Charisma score in place of their Constitution score when calculating hit points, Fortitude saves, and any special ability that relies on Constitution (such as when calculating a breath weapon’s DC)."
    ...
    Guess that's what I get for not doing my research before asking questions...

    Oh geez, this should probably be meaningful or something.
