She’s an awesome looking character, who, like all of our iconics, is depicted by artist Wayne Reynolds.

Shardra’s amazing and we’ll be seeing her adventures as one of the Pathfinder RPG’s iconic heroes for years to come.

Around the 80's, fantasy has turned into a vehicle for people to self-insert themselves into so they can be whisked away to some magical land of mystery and adventure in the body of a ten foot barbarian warrior or a wizard who can nuke planets at his whim. Tabletop gaming played on this by giving people the tools to roleplay (more often than not as themselves but with a bigger dick) a character in this magical fantasy land, and it being played primarily by capital-N NERDS naturally resulted in a lot of generic knights, edgy rogues, brash barbarians, and honorful barbarians. So when women and "women" entered the tabletop gaming sphere, it comes to no surprise that they want to roleplay as lesbians or as trannies (read: as themselves).
That's what fantasy is for the masses: a reflection of the audience's desires wrapped in a blanket of familiar clichés. These clichés being derived from fantasy fiction or settings written by more creative people who used fantasy as a means to explore the unknown or to draw a parallel to the real world
in order to make a point. Not being a vehicle to show off how cool and unique your characters are, and to inject your horrible fetishes and desires into the story. That's why in Western fantasy you end up with a cast consisting of a higher percentage of bisexuals and other gays than in most Western countries, and why Japanese fantasy, or isekai as that where it's at nowadays, completely drops the pretense of the world being anything but a plaything for the main character, who himself is nothing but a bland vehicle for readers to self-insert themselves into. Only difference is Western fantasy likes to ape Tolkien and/or D&D whereas isekai likes to ape Dragon Quest and MMORPG's.

This. And note it's not restricted to "leftists", given paper thin fetish shit like Gorn or Sword of Truth. Same is true for SF especially since the advent of "transhumanist fiction" around the 90s.
Cranking the speed up for RTwP sweeps unimportant events under the rug, but cranking the speed up for TB sweeps EVERYTHING under the rug. Fights in big town maps in Fallout 1/2 are basically unplayable no matter the speed setting.

Paizo, the Pozzfinder IP owner is pozzed to hell and back. If anyone will make a game out of their shit, it is a pretty sure bet they will force pozz into it.
Kingmaker module is mostly non-pozzed but it is pretty shit. The main gimmick and sell-point is the city building which you can cheese the fuck out of it by building mage towers and sell magic items they produce for fuckton of money and build points so you can have a utopia and a hugefuck army to go with it.
Problem is, even with your kingdom and fucktons of army. You still have to solve problems yourselves like a bandit raid even though you got guards in full-gear, still have to be out there in the ass-end of nowhere to explore. And also the game fucks your "freedom" it advertised. Enchanters who specialises in mind control and shit will come to fuck your mind hard and tell you what to build in your city what to do with heaven knows how high the save DC is to further someones else agenda.
No politics either which is anticipated with city building and being a kang. Enchanters comes only to fuck your mind and go. You just build a city as a toy side-project because you have to be there to supervise. Problem is, you need to adventure too because what the fuck you have 100k army and you cannot send them to do shit. Take too long and problems starts. By the end-game, war forcibly happens and if you adventure too much and did not build your city through calculated min-max formula posted on the net or no one in your group is an Anno games autist like me. Then fuck your city, it's sacked because plot says so. The end-game is a total ass pull. I can sperg forever about this overrated piece of hot garbage.

Yeah, they're best thought of as source material, rather than something you plug in and play, sort of like reusing other modders' assetpacks in your own mods.

Discord has a lot more scale than Skype. Skype was supposed to be used with like 10 people max in a group chat, Discord can have over a 1000.

DDO is 3.5e, not 4e. It's a 3rd edition game by-and-far. It came out years before 4e. I don't know where you get 4e from.
>Amiri – the iconic barbarian woman who was exiled from her tribe for being a warrior rather than a housewife
She wasn't exiled. They tried to get her to solo a frost giant and die but she looted a dead giant instead and brought his sword back as proof. She then killed all of her tribesmen who were because she sperged out when they made fun of her, and then never returned. But I guess you can't spout SJW talking points as cleanly without tweaking the source material to make someone more of a victim.
>But was that the Kingmaker module though?
No. Kingmaker was one of Paizo's earlier adventures. Honestly, the earliest Pathfinder stuff wasn't really pozzed. They clearly had a bad wave of new hires or something. I mean, that SJW Guild Wars 2 employee that was all the buzz a few months ago worked at Paizo before that.
Hell, some of the core iconics were kind of cool
until they started writing more stuff about them a few years ago that brought them up to SJW code. The fighter just wants to fuck bitches and make money, the wizard is a neet who lost his support when he was elderly and decided to stake out as a wizard, and the rogue is a loli by elven standards. Hell, even the black woman paladin is funny, because she became a paladin to attone for the fact that she niggered a paladin's helmet the night before a battle and he got his brains bashed out. You can see the pozz building up when the fighter becomes the dumb white male who deserves what he gets and the arabian cleric who has the opposite values of the rogue starts a lesbian relationship with her. >>15503067
It's Pathfinder, so wizards, clerics, druids and sorcerers are going to be your most powerful party members. Prestige classes will let you hybridize your casters if you want, so you can turn a rogue into an arcane trickster, or a fighter/paladin/barbarian into an eldritch knight, or you can play the mystic theruge that gives you all the spells from both divine and arcane spellbooks so you can cast every spell in the game but slightly weaker.
I don't know what source books they've put into the base game, but casters are generally more useful in Pathfinder, depending entirely on what source materials are available.

Bitching about poz in Pathfinder only makes sense because it's not unwilling to actually come out and say it.
Meanwhile no one bitches about poz in Forgotten Realms despite that Ed Greenwood's design document indicates that everyone's bi, there's a brothel in every town, and most festivals devolve into orgies. This is actually so thoroughly locked into his contract that if WotC mentiones that a town DOESN'T have a brothel he can take his entire fucking setting away from them
which adventure is that? The one in Wrath of the Righteous was just a sale of a relatively insignificant magic sword
And why do these stories not acknowledge that an elixir of sex shifting can be gotten for such an inexpensive price that you can afford one after 3 hours of dungeon diving
Also the twat that wrote Shardra Geltl, Wrath of the Righteous, and a good amount of other pozzed crap got fired for being a bitch. Turns out Lisa Stevens, the tranny head of Paizo, is more interested in making money than dealing with social politics

It's no more or less pozzed than D&D. Some of the tabletop designers are cuntier than their WotC counterparts though.
Going to need a citation on that one. Not saying PF is an unlikely candidate but the original stated reason it exists at all is that autists that played D&D wanted a slightly different version of D&D.
Having said all that, as a CRPG this game certainly seems more promising than the latest Obsidian shit.

If I were to point to a patient-zero for poz, it would be White Wolf in the 90s, especially V:TM, ESPECIALLY their Mind's Eye Theater LARP. Paizo was poz-free (arguably a bit moreso than late-3e WotC) until the late 2000s, loooong after far worse things, like FATE-style rules-lite, and the Forge's narrativist bullshit games.

4e is a skirmish wargame more than an RPG and Pathfinder makes melee far more viable (though it is still subject to high level caster supremacy)

And 3.5e is more an idiotic exercise in designing a deliberately imbalanced and overly convoluted system designed to offer players tons of "trap" bad choices so that just sorting through all the trash to figure out viable builds is a major part of the "game", than it is an actual RPG.

3/3.5 was broken, but it was so large and full of fun bullshit in its myriad splatbooks, and it was still basically D&D. 4e was a random meme skirmish game, with a garbage rules-lite "RPG" stapled on, and "D&D" painted onto it, along with a horrendous retcon lore rape of the Faerun setting. Also, while I feel the choice to do it in the first place for D20 was a bad idea from a business standpoint, the OGC was a source of much great material and goodwill, and clumsily obliterating it with the switch to 4e was an even worse blunder on both a fandom and business level.

Here's a similar spell in GURPS (well, DFRPG which is supposed to be slightly simplified GURPS for a D&D type game)
Creates a lightning bolt that explodes on impact. This has
Acc 3, 1/2D 50, Max 100. Roll against Innate Attack (Projectile)
to hit. Can be thrown at a wall, floor, etc. (+4 to hit) to catch
foes in the blast – see Attacking an Area (Exploits, p. 45). Damage
treats metal armor as DR 1, and injury stuns as explained
for Lightning (below).
Also an Air spell.
Cost: Any amount up to twice your level o f spellcasting
talent per second, for three seconds. For every two energy
points in the spell, the bolt does 1d-1 burning explosive damage.
See Explosions (Exploits, p. 46) for rules for rules for
Time to cast: 1 to 3 seconds.
Prerequisites: Wizardly: Lightning.
So you have a variable cost and cast time, a set bonus if you aim (which you can improve further by aiming longer), a distance at which damage is halved and a maximum distance, a specific skill (based upon an attribute) to hit, the option to throw it where something is instead of at the thing for an easier shot, behavior vs armor, and a stunning effect.
GURPS is FAR from the most complex system, and I would only call it kind of complex. AD&D isn't shit, it just tends to have tables instead of calculations making it impossible to memorize.
Was that actively designed to make you seem like a gigantic faggot?

You're right, they aren't, but D&D isn't supposed to be a competitive game. It's a lot harder to make a game that is internally balanced and also fun without stripping out anything interesting about it.

>Do area spells automatically hit in AD&D? I can't recall.
Save for half damage.
>throwing a thingy that explodes is just as complicated
Did you just deliberately ignore the part where you can change the shape of the bolt to a number of forms which depend on your level? And that you have to figure out how the bolt rebounds?
>oh well you just have to consult the rulebook constantly
Well no shit, the net effect is the same. You're spending time referencing shit to crunch the rules instead of progressing the game. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm a programmer so I enjoy arithmetic. But to say that AD&D isn't towards the "complex" end of the spectrum is just silly. That article I linked even explicitly goes over how the fireball and lightning bolt rules were basically lifted wholesale from Chainmail rules. Wargame rules are definitely not the median when it comes to rules complexity when you're talking about RPGs.

The barbarian has actually been around forever. She is one of the "main characters" used to promote the franchise and you can find her in promo art going all the way back to the initial core rulebook. Having said that, PF has a niche for the person who likes oversized weapons – it's in the game rules. Her weapon is actually a "Large" Bastard Sword, meaning it's a weapon for a Large creature like a troll.

I don't know for a fact that's a mage, but I really hate how a mage armored like that would suck horribly in D&D and its clones (like pathfinder) due to flat spell failure chances. I love how natural the penalties for armor in GURPS are; you don't invest much in strength as it gives you no bonuses in combat as a mage. Weight in general causes you to tire faster, and your fatigue is what you use for spells so if you tire yourself too much with spells you could physically damage yourself with your weight-based exhaustion.

It's one thing to not allow the depth of a tabletop game in vidya but it seems like time and time again they go out of their way to axe anything even remotely interesting from any rulebook or setting for the sake of the blandest shit possible. You can probably still count the number of RPGS, modern or otherwise, that let you play as a monster on a single hand for example.

Honestly for adventurers, nobility, and PCs? No real excuse. Way out of the paycheck for peasants though. IIRC Eberron is the setting closest to that being possible.

I'd be really surprised if it weren't possible. They included a bunch of the PF specific hybrid classes as well such as Magus and Inquisitor.
I really wish it had Flight, the spell. More CRPGs need Flight since it's a landmark spell in the P&P game. One of my favorite magus concepts was a bastard sword user that cast flight and haste on himself, got a feat that gave him bonuses to charge and was basically a divebomber.

I don't much care to play as ugly races, but what I would like to see is a better take on choices that doesn't always boil down to shitty binary choices of good and evil. I'd rather be given two (or more) choices that are both appealing to me instead of having to play some pathological altruist and some Coldsteel tier retard that thinks bullying puppies is the height of villainy.

Most adventurers are losers. This is something not addressed adequately in most games, with the noted exception of AD&D and its retroclones. And indeed most knights and nobles do have magic items, hard not to when you can just commission one from a wizard. What setting are you even talking about? Faerun/FR has magic items pouring out of your ass.

Also, the homogenization in my opinion is due to them wanting to "balance" the game and oft-times having a bunch of interesting spells allows you to abuse the game mechanics in unintended and interesting ways. Frankly, i'd rather just let them have fun and find ways to break things down and make themselves incredibly powerful, rather than remove all innovation from the game myself.

Because, back in the days, magical items could kill you if you were the wrong alignment for it.
Take the Robe of the Arcimagi, basically the best bathrobe in existence.
You're the wrong alignment?
Take a shitload of damage.
Magical items are supposed to be rare, incredibly expensive (a noble would have to spend their ENTIRE fortune just to get a chance to create it, let alone have it) and if you're not the creator possibly dangerous and/or cursed.
As opposed to Pathfinder's "lol I craft boot of licking dicks I get +5 to diplomacy".
Anonymous 09/26/18 (Wed) 21:35:13 d58658 No. 15509403
At least under 3.5e/PF:
>Creating magic armor has a special prerequisite: The creator’s caster level must be at least three times the enhancement bonus of the armor. If an item has both an enhancement bonus and a special ability, the higher of the two caster level requirements must be met.
>In addition, not every town or village has a spellcaster of sufficient level to cast any spell. In general, you must travel to a small town (or larger settlement) to be reasonably assured of finding a spellcaster capable of casting 1st-level spells, a large town for 2nd-level spells, a small city for 3rd- or 4th-level spells, a large city for 5th- or 6th-level spells, and a metropolis for 7th- or 8th-level spells. Even a metropolis isn’t guaranteed to have a local spellcaster able to cast 9th-level spells.
So spellcasters capable of making armor with a magical AC bonus higher than +2 may be rare or nonexistant in the entirety of a campaign setting. Whereas mundane full plate goes up to +8, and tower shields +4 or full cover.
Most tabletop RPGs allow you to play as monsters. For instance, D&D lets you play as practically anything intelligent enough to be conscious of its own choices, though with a level-adjustment penalty depending on how powerful the creature is.
Armor penalty to dex, duh.

Pathfinder 2.0 is such a disaster that, on top of the incredible failures of the system, they're dumb enough to put it out there right before the first CRPG based on the original Pathfinder releases.

Here's the skinny:
You have the most powerful and versatile control and utility spells in the game. Straight damage is for simple minded dumbfucks. Area of effect is your key virtue as well. Sometimes, using an area of effect damage spell is worth it if enemy density is high enough, but ideally you should keep the fireballs to scrolls and wands and save your memory for the encounter ending control spells.
Your hitpoints are bottom tier, stay as far away as possible unless you multiclass into something with a non-shit hit die.
Don't lead groups ever, always walk in formation so you're not the one who sets off traps. In fact, make a habit of stopping at hallways and walking through with your rogue or barbarian first.
You should be able to learn spells by copying them into your spellbook from a scroll. This is unique to wizards. Make sure you copy all the arcane scrolls you can so you don't have to waste your level up spells on anything simple.
Examples of key spells that give wizards their classic D&D reputation of being smug, unlikeable assholes (learn these):
>Magic Missile (because it bypasses all forms of evasion and armor and resistance)
>Stinking Cloud (moreso in the past when it fucking PARALYZED NIGGERS)
>Fireball (tends to annihilate everything with 3 or less hit dice in a huge radius, also the setting things on fire bit is key in P&P)
>Ghost Visage (or whatever it's fucking called)
>Any summoning spell past the 2nd spell level
That should get you going.

RTwP adaptations of D&D from Infinity to NWN handled timekeeping perfectly. The objection most people have to RTwP is that some amount of AI is required to interpolate between queued player orders, especially for positioning.
I personally find the advantages of RTwP relative to IGOUGO TB generally outweigh the maluses, but I'll admit that an occasional TB adaptation does have its own unique flavor that's refreshing to play occasionally.
Speed factor had to do with RoF on ranged weapons, you're probably thinking of "segments" in 2e.

D&D has Standard, Minor, and Move actions. Attacking is a Standard action. Some classes/builds can perform multiple attacks in one turn if they don't move. Most spells can be performed in one Standard action. There's no reason why it can't be a straight turn based translation from the pen and paper rules.

The thing about armor is that only classes with martial proficiencies can use it, and the only real benefit you get from the armor is its inherent AC bonus. On the other hand, if you have a robe of blur or concealment that gives you 50% chance for all attacks to miss, then it's not like you really give a shit about 8 AC. The benefit of enchanting armor is very limited both in scope and in who can benefit from it.

Small update on this issue for the laughs. Apparently yesterday morning the official Owlcat Games Steam account posted in the main Steam thread for this issue saying that they'd work on this issue all day if they had to. Then they went on a livestream and said it's more complicated than they thought and that they're waiting for other devs to help. Jesus Christ. I simply can't imagine that it's that difficult. The IO library for Unity is not rocket science.

There are some "fake realtime" games, like Summoner and The Dark Eye, that are actually just WEGO "simultaneous resolution" TB, but that removes the benefit of higher time granularity from RTwP.

Someone in the Steam thread linked to another stackoverflow knock-off thread about some Unity code to save multiple files at once not working. He was getting the exact same exception that Pathfinder: Kingmaker is throwing at me. Turns out the dipshit forgot to serialize his data and close the file handle. I sincerely hope it's not that ridiculously stupid.

You're supposed to use torches. The game starts you with at least one. But yes, swarms are immune to weapon damage. This is why any dungeoneering Fighter or Barbarian worth their salt carries oil flasks. "Alchemist's fire" is just a bunch of bullshit they came up with to make it seem less mundane in later editions.

I mean, I don't suppose you can do the low money molotov meme in the videogame. But yes, ideally if you don't have a magic caster you gotta have some rags, a torch, some flour, 50ft of rope, some copper pieces and a 10 foot pole in every dungeon you're going in.

That's what alchemist's fire/acid flasks are for. They're very common in the game and not expensive. I just don't get why they felt the need to make them seem "more magical" by changing the name from "oil flask."

There's a methodology to playing the game and enjoying yourself, it just requires some stumbling until you gain knowledge of the class mechanics. As a long-time veteran of 3rd edition schlock and its derivatives, it's objectively not very good all-around but there's a ton of content for it and it just doesn't want to fucking go away. 3rd edition was actually designed for you to be very likely to fail before you can learn the game mechanics and succeed. This was due to their ivory tower game design philosophy, basically WotC saying "let's copy Magic the Gathering" after buying D&D from TSR.
If you want enemies to miss less, understand how the average to-hit roll works and what kind of armor class your party members have. 10 is the "baseline" AC with no armor and no penalties or special stat bonuses. You will probably get hit unless they roll poorly. 20 AC is what you can expect out of a guy with full plate armor and a shield and no special stat bonuses. 28 AC is what you might expect out of a buffed cleric/warrior with magic items.

This is too true. Still, it's one of the few RPGs I find myself replaying over and over. It's a flawed gem, but still worth playing, especially compared to the shit being shoveled out by AAA RPG developers.
That ain't "Get Woke, Go Broke" though. That's just paizo being paizo. They were
always fucking terrible at mechanics. These guys used to run Dragon Magazine for the 3.5 D&D line back in the day and they were positively infamous for the amounts of busted content they would shit out, to the point that hearing someone wanted to play something from Dragon Magazine made you worry what munchkin bullshit they were pulling out.
In Pathfinder Core they just tweaked mechanics a bit and switched things around, and during the playtest they banned anyone who posted serious analysis and criticism of what PF was doing wrong. Stupid design decisions made their way through in the game and questioning them was verboten because the devs were prima donnas who refused to accept they could've done anything wrong. The main reason PF did so well wasn't that Paizo was a brilliant company. It was that Paizo knew how to publish this shit and people fucking hated 4E which WotC discontinued. When paizo made PF (which they advertised as 3.5-compatible even though it wasn't really, again: fail) all the 3.5 players who hated 4E switched over to PF instead, since PF was still making content.
There was so much shit they could've fixed when they released PF, instead they copied over many of the 3.5 failings and made a good number of them much worse than they ever were in 3.5.

In Pathfinder you can ignore crafting prerequisites by adding +4 to the crafting DC. It's a key part of how you can make a candle of invocation at level 5 and cast a game-breaking spell you shouldn't have access to before level 17.

Does anyone know how the mercenary levels are decided?
I have the greencoal burner rogue/wizard and since my MC is a rogue I want a pure wizard. I already got a cleric mercenary and he started off at the same level everyone else was at, but at the minimum experience level for that. So now he's a level below. If it's the level of the MC I should probably get a wizard now, otherwise I should probably wait until the cleric is leveled up.
Anonymous 09/27/18 (Thu) 21:51:03 a9602d No. 15514894

Actually, since she fully acknowledges the existence of gods, she is neither. Gnosticism itself (rebellion against the divine) would actually be a closer description. She's future Groetus chow either way.

Depends on the game. Neverwinter Nights for example doesn't have faerie fire and concealment is really fucking annoying in that game.
It's been a rule since OD&D that monsters don't set off traps, and only when 3rd edition (if I recall correctly) came out were there monsters that couldn't see in the dark. It's just one of those rules you make to make the GM's life easier.
