Pros

>Pathfinder and not some retarded shit like PoE or Torment's made for the game yet still shit rulesets

>Moderate-high difficulty

>mildly interesting plot thus far

>no purple prose

>A lot of difficulty sliders to customize different aspects of difficulty

>The least leftist taint in a nu-CRPG

Neutral for me but some people may be autistic about

>RTwP

>not 100% accurate to pathfinder especially with monsters even with all the difficulty sliders set to pen and paper accurate

Cons

>Bethesda quality Q&A, bugs everywhere, some gamebreaking (I haven't encountered any) especially on linux

>devs have stated early game encounters are scaled incorrectly but haven't said when this will be fixed

>Recruiting not-gimped mercenary companions who you create is almost exorbitantly expensive and was broken in the 9/28 patch, not sure if that's been hotfixed yet

>Dice rolls may not have even probability as some people have claimed after a hundred or so tests 10~% CTH for enemies hit 40~% of the time with roughly opposite results for the player and similar results for saving throws (AI always seems to succeed, PCs rarely)

>At the start there are 5 companions 2-3 of which will join you and the rest your rival depending on your choices, 4 of which are women, all of which are complete shit compared to an optimized character (the fighter has fucking 14 STR)

>Magic weapons more common than BG which felt too common for me

If they don't cuck out worse I'll probably buy it when it goes on sale for ten bucks or less. I recommend a pirate for now.

Unpatched version from TPB, I've heard that patch 1.01 or maybe 1.02 breaks merc recruitment which is mandatory (recommend getting one at level 2, costs 2k gold, get it as close to as soon as you level up as possible) which you absolutely must have.

I really wanted to give this a solid go but it's testing my patience now, saving after every damn thing that doesn't kill me is getting old, every bastard encounter that isn't some soft bellied pile of shit is raping at least one of my skanks before they're dealt with, shields run out fast, spells too, this means potions, which quickly means no potions, which means shopping which means backtracking or finding a new store which means wasting time which is apparently at a fucking premium, gr8 stuff games on timers can suck my dick.

So you stock up and RNG your way to barley managing to kill some half tasty cunt but 3 of your team are royally fucked up so your potionless asses have to rest but then your anus gets a nocturnal raking over the coals by whatever shitheel decided to start crit stabbing your sleeping mates for a chuckle. It feels like this game hates the player. I've got fuck nothing done on the 'build a damn town' front, saw the little purple cunt once but he ran off, the gangs are NAILS as fuck, gotta go killing everything weak to get anywhere it seems, at this rate I'll have to find a way to reset the clock.

What are your difficulty settings at? I made a custom setting because 'normal' has modifiers below PF and "challenging" has modifiers above it. You have to manually make everything PF baseline. It still isn't baseline but it's closer that way.

By the way I finished the first part with the 90 day timer in 30 days, so don't sweat the timer.

If you put the undead autism elf in the "special" position the game says two undead champions will defend you if you're attacked.

The underlying problem is that RPGs require an inherently problematic workflow. In most other genres:

>programmers create engine

>artists create audiovisual assets

>mappers create environment

>writers create story/fluff

>designers create reference docs

>tiny amount of scripting is either hardcoded using automated tools or specially requested for programming team

In RPGs, on top of this:

>massive amount of scripting needed

>designers, writers, mappers, absolutely have to pepper everything they make with custom scripts

>these people either can't program or aren't aren't very good programmers

>even with a tightly defined subset of a really dumbed down language like lua or python, the inevitable result is mountains of amateurish spaghetti code

The only solutions I can imagine are either tremendously more powerful SDKs, or forcing half the team to take a crash compsci course before development even starts.

Both are in pretty radically different contexts:

>classical era

Cavalry didn't exist, because there were no stirrups nor reigns. Instead, there were only infantry in light armor and (later) chariots. Order of battle was bows, javelins/slings, short spears, then swords, marching with tower shields (discarded when in sword range) in tight formations.

>middle ages

Cavalry was used to harass and break up tight formations, so instead line infantry was used with long (>15') pikes to ward off cavalry, and heavier armor allowed the use of smaller shields with more powerful close range weapons.

>D&D

Is primarily about individual combat in close quarters, not mass engagements on open terrain. As such, sword/axe/mace & shield/main-gauche has a massive advantage over spears or two-handers. And ranged weapons of any kind aside from offhand thrown weapons are completely unrealistic

Sean K. Reynolds left years ago (possibly fired) and his replacement is a guy who wrote optimization guides. Company is still shit though, and the beta test for their new system is horrifically bad. They went to a D20 Modern/Saga Edition/4E style approach where classes had no fixed abilities and you picked from a talent tree every other level. They missed the point of that design entirely (admittedly of the three examples only Saga Edition pulled it off. D20 Modern had talents that were almost all retarded in design. "You get +1 to a skill" and "You can add your intelligence to your to-hit on the second round onward" were equal, 4E was shit) and it forces you into a single tower depending on what you want to specialize in. Except you still have fixed abilities on top of that, so characters are still shoehorned into a role.

My point was that using the tactics and weapons of the mass battlefield, from any era, to evaluate the usually indoors one-on-one combat in an RPG is silly.

Please, just stop talking. Yes, of course cavalry was much less of an emphasis in the classical period compared to afterwards due to the advances you mentioned, but that does not change the fact that cavalry most certainly did play a major part in the classical period, and to say that it did not exist is literally the least intelligent thing I've read all day.

that's not always true in crpgs since casters lack a lot of their really crazy cheese powers like scry, flight, long range teleportation, and dumpster diving through monster manuals for broken creatures to summon or transform into. Plus CRPGs tend to hand out magic items like everyday is Christmas which drastically increases the effectiveness of non casters.

I mean, hell, Druids in NWN2 were considered a low tier class and fighters were a solid high middle, while in tabletop D&D Druids were considered obscenely overpowered and fighters were just above fucking monks at the bottom of the list at the time.

When it comes right down to it any longterm tabeltop player, regardless of their politics, will create a character that crosses the line into liberal territory and occasional fetishism. D&D's supported this since forever ago with the girdle of masculinity/femininity, the dark elf bondage queens, etc. Degeneracy is just where the game goes sometimes.

When we consider the modern fanbase, who are unfortunately the hot market, we basically get a bunch of dumb-as-dirt motherfuckers who not only won't think of an option unless it's distinctly spelled out for them but will actually protest loudly and uncontrollably until they get their way and even for a little while after.

The existence of Shardra Geltl, Yoon, and the occassional hermaphroditic tiefling are all answers for normalfags wanting to get into the game who lack the creativity to make their perfect snowflake without the word of God directly supporting their actions.

Are you implying rogues, who get a flat bonus from sneak attacks, don't benefit greatly from doubling their hits early?

Rogues are horrible at TWF because the accuracy penalties are too high for them to actually hit anything while doing it. Paladins (and Rangers who can ensure their Favored Enemy is always their target, which is impossible to do in a video game) can TWF because they have a high enough BAB and charisma to hit to actually hit while doing it, have bonus damage on smite (Paladin level always applying>half level times ~3.5). Depending on what options they implemented a Fighter could also be decent at it (They need Gloves of Dueling, but can make it work if they have them).

Half the point of Improved Initiative is being able to target enemies that are in a cluster, which doesn't work in RTWP.

Yes, it's better in turn based, but in the implementation of this game (non-synced timers) it does have an effect and that effect is noticeable. It's especially noticeable on things like debuffs, so it would be more useful on a sorcerer or something. It's marginally useful on damage dealers though, due to killing the thing before it can kill you back.

it's a CRPG interpretation of the best Pathfinder adventure path with additional content provided by the community (as the community sometimes does with APs. There's a metric fuckton of fan content for Rise of the Runelords, for instance)

gameplaywise, while real-time-with-pause has its flaws, many of us do have fond memories of Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Neverwinter Nights. So the gameplay isn't a total turnoff (thou I'd have preferred turnbased on a grid).

>Not worth multiplying your damage by huge amounts

You already have to be flanking or catching things flatfooted to get a sneak attack off in the first place. That's already making up most of what you're losing by not being a full BAB class. The to hit loss is barely noticeable compared to the huge bonus you get from getting off more sneak attacks in a round.

It's not "huge amounts", it's ~3.5 damage per hit every other level (1.75 every level) if certain conditions are met, which generally takes an extra turn to get going. That's assuming you get through DR to even make sneak attack damage. Paladin gets 1 damage every level while everything except skills is just flat better (they get spells, martial weapons, d10 HD, divine bond, lay on hands and some other shit. Almost all the rogue talents are garbage.). Paladin smite damage is also multiplied on a critical hit while sneak attack is not.

>>15525327

You're also forgetting that in most cases having two attacks at a -2 is still statistically more likely to hit at least one attack than just having one attack a a +0, while at the same time having the potential to boost your damage by huge amounts if both attacks land.

Another thing about Sneak attacks are they are untyped damage so they punch through just about anything as long as the dude is vulnerable to sneak attacks. I agree they're not the best, especially in pathfinder later levels when just about 50% of what the game can throw at you is immune to it, but that's largely dependent on your DM, and on the things that it works against it absolutely deletes whatever the fuck you're attacking. I don't know what they throw at you in this game, but I doubt they're playing dick DM.

And you say iif certain conditions are met, yet same goes for smite evil since that only works on Evil. Doesn't do shit on wild animals or anything neutral aligned. You also only have limited number of smites per day. And +20 damage at level 20 doesn't hold a candle to a TWF rogue's 40d6. Even if you miraculously rolled a 1 on every d6 you'd still have twice the bonus your smite gives, and you can use it all day every day.

You're thinking about 3.0/3.5. In pathfinder only creatures of the Ooze type, the elemental subtype, and a tiny handful of very specific one off monters are immune to sneak attacks.


b698c0  No.15525409

>>15525327

FYI, getting 3.5 average damage per even level is actually a lot of damage when dealing with Pathfinder, or similar games in general. That's your prize for trading down your hit die and having a harder time managing an acceptable AC. For reference, a two-handed fighter gains 20 damage at max level when using power attack, in exchange for 5 attack. Pathfinder also did away with the sneak attack immunities for things like golems and skeletons, so you actually get to claim that bonus all of the time.

If you have at least two melee, you should be flanking regardless for the attack bonus. If you're not flanking, you're not claiming a free bonus. You can't complain about having to flank to get a bonus if you're supposed to be fulfilling that condition anyway. Also, Pathfinder doesn't use the stupid-ass scaling in Starfinder or Pathfinder 2e, so you don't have to have a full bab just to have a 10% chance to hit anything.

Pick a race with a Wisdom bonus, pick a cleric with the crusader sub class, raise your wisdom stat to at least 18, 12 for you dex and cha, and the rest in your strength score. Get the biggest fucking armor, shield and one handed weapon you can use, pick all the spells that say they buff your damage, ac, or stats cast a few of them on your self at the start of every fight and remember to rest every so often to refresh your spells. There, you have about the most powerful, idiot proof build possible.

you get your entire spell list by default, you can change your prepared list daily so even if you pick dumb spells one day you can change it the next, solid armor and weapon proficiency, shields, the ability to cast in armor and medium HP and attack bonus. You don't even have to prepare healing spells in advanced, you can just cast them whenever. Sure playing a full caster is a bit complicated, but any mistake you might make early on can be corrected later as you get more system mastery.

It's only weakness is it's skill list. And you can fix that with some domain choices. Or use party member as you pet skill monkeies

Pretty much. She always had to be stronger than the men of her tribe out of a sense of personal pride. There's a wiki for this stuff

>Oh and she is of course canonically bisexual. It isn't called Pozzfinder for nothing.

All of the iconics are canonically bisexual, but not for the reason you're thinking; Paizo's staff knew fujoshits and the like would write slashfiction, so rather than force the issue with a canon straight character and deal with a million angry hambeasts they just went "yeah, sure, whatever"

Missile Storm was a Bioware's creation, not the D&D books. You can tell because it was an evocation spell that did an amount of damage you'd actual care about and 3rd edition wasn't suppose to have that. Direct damage spells were suppose to be flashy trap options whose main purpose was distract new Wizard players from casting the overpowered SaveOrDie and SaveOrSuck spells that actually ended fights.

That's exactly the point. The perfect tranny fantasy, switching gender at a whim.

The game keeps close to the Kingmaker adventure, so if no other iconic characters are in that, they probably won't be in the game either. And thank God for that. Wait until you meet Jubilost, Owlcat are perfectly capable of writing characters that will make your blood boil. Although considering how much of a grade A shitter he is, some of you might feel a certain kinship.

Not that I've seen, you can't even control what feats and spells or even multi-classes they get when they level.

School libraries had some weird shit sometimes. I took a book titled Kushiel's Scion because the cover was cool and it was in some kind of version of France during the Renaissance and I fucking love that period of time. The book was weird as fuck, it was basically smut and the main character want to fuck his cousin, and does it. Also she's into bondage and it goes into great details how she is tied up and where the knots push in. I was only 14, this fucked me up.

>Didn't know what I was getting into

One time I read a book because it looked like good fiction: vampires and werewolves. This was before Twilight was published. It was written from the perspective of a female cop who was one of those two I can't remember which and it was talking about how every so often, all the people of her kind just flood the streets and fuck each other senseless like it was a mating season, and that they have to have something surgically inserted into their loins to prevent rampant pregnancies during this time.

Then she went on about how she hated the people of the other race and how they always smelled bad, but this one hunk always lingered on her mind. I didn't keep reading. It dawned on me that this was drivel and I picked out the wrong book. Then I read sea of trolls (which is a funny title to me after internet trolls became common vernacular) and it was great. I hated reading, and this book was more massive than anything I would dare to touch, but somehow I read it all, but all I remember was that a fucking madman of a wizard abandons his body so he could imprint his soul into a bird, and that somewhere along the line, the author just writes up a scene depicting the jack and jill nursery rhyme all nonchalantly (the MC's name is Jack and he's with this tomboy bitch berserker who gets her name changed to Jil or something gay, and the water they get is part of their quest. hundreds of pages amounted to this)

So apparently all forms of spell focus aren't working for at least some Sorcerer bloodlines and archetypes. That's spell focus, greater spell focus, elemental focus, greater elemental focus, spell specialization, spell penetration, greater, spell penetration, etc. which makes up about 50% of your useful feat selection apart from the metamagics. Just a heads up for you sorcerer boys because I didn't know it was bugged until I was already a fair ways in.

Your 2H fighter for some reason started with 19 str instead of 20 and somehow he has 14 charisma. Seriously, dump the charisma and int into 7 each and boost the worthwhile stats instead. Fighters don't need that shit. Intimidate is seriously overrated if that's why you have cha and even with 7 int you will still have 3 skills/lvl. Leave the skills to the skillmonkey (Rogue)

Your Barbarian somehow does not have Power Attack because apparently you picked Improved Initiative instead…

Your Rogue has unnecessarily high int (What, 9 skills per level weren't enough? He needed 12?) and extremely bad str. He also has 13 con when he should really have at least 14. I'm personally partial to going high str and high dex on rogues so I can avoid bothering with bullshit like weapon finesse and agile weapons and spend those feats on better shit. I'd sooner play a Rogue with 20 str and 16 dex myself so it can actually hit shit.

Your cleric should have 20 wis, not fucking 16. Spellcasters get higher DCs and bonus spells from high attribute scores, you know. You always put their spellcasting stat at 20 (unless you can throw it even higher). Also Charisma is widely seen as a dump stat on Clerics. You fell for the channeling trap. Channeling is a fucking waste of time. Spells >>> channeling. Ditch the charisma (most Clerics take it to down to 7 cha or 5 if you're a dwarf) and invest in more valuable stats (like starting with 20 wis and boosting dex and con some more). Also destruction domain sucks donkey balls. Generally one of the best domains is the animal domain for the animal companion. Trickery and Travel are not bad picks either. There's more options but I cba going through all of 'em. In general you want domains that have spells clerics normally don't get instead of domains that give spells you do get.

Your Wizard has Point-Blank Shot (wtf??) and Spell Focus (Evocation) (noob alert). Blasting is among the worst uses of a Wizard's spells. Good spellcaster players know to debuff enemies into the ground instead of using them as a damage dealer. Find the spells that make enemies useless and focus on those. To tell the truth, Evocation is a popular choice for opposition school when you go specialist Wizard.

No you don't, son. You just need to git gud, not activate cheatcodes. You can go hybrid if you want. It's perfectly doable. You just gotta rack up sidequests and bonus SP opportunities. Hybrids can pick up more SP than specialists because they have a much wider array of sidequests and opportunities available to them. If you do it right you can make full-on do-everything builds in AoD. It's just that playing a hybrid is a more difficult run than playing a specialist since you'll want to keep a careful eye out on how you spend and accumulate those SP and trainings.

Source: I like to play turbo-hybrid do-everything characters in AoD.

If you go for anything specialist in this game you don't need to git gud, you just need to braindeadly push the same dialogue option all the time or just specialize in combat and solve everything through bloodshed.

Fantasy peaked with Tolkien because everyone else is either a juvenile retard with no grasp of history, an edgelord making everything grim and depressing, and the protagonist is always a whiny nobody that gets everything handed to him.

Personally I have lots of fun playing hybrids in AoD. I agree that specialists are easy. That's why people recommend playing specialist to first-timers. However, you are not obligated to specialize. You don't need a double XP cheat either to make that work. You are just bad at the game. You can make regular hybrids just fine. And you can even make extreme hybrids if you are fucking good at it.

Hell, praetors are natural hybrids in AoD. Dude, you can hybrid everything. You can even play an Imperial Guard with diplomacy skills and get loads of actual opportunities to use them as an IG. You're just bad at the game if you need a double SP cheat to make your hybrids work.

They're still fucking boring. I had more fun reading about Jorg and his edgelord escapades in Prince of Thorns than all the Wheel of Time books combined, mostly because Jorg isn't a bitch and actually plots shit and acts, instead of constantly reacting to what the antagonists are doing.

I gave up on Wheel of Time because it made me want to slit my wrists, that's how fucking boring and banal the whole plot was. Small blessings is that it petered out before fantasy got popular (and it features polygamy) so there's a very small chance it will ever get a TV/movie adaptation.

No dude, that kind of extreme planning is only for when you want to go do fucking extreme do-everything builds, which is what you do after you've done your regular runs and your hybrid runs and are itching for bigger challenges.

For ordinary hybrids, exploring, sidequesting, and accumulating trainings is good enough. If you have 7 Cha (the magic numba) you can get a lot of training from a lot of people. Even without 7 cha there are a lot of training opportunities. Also Lore is profitable in terms of SP, which shouldn't surprise you since investigating old shit is kinda a big theme in the game. And even without training and shit you can still hybrid up an extra skill or perhaps two to do different things from a pure specialist. A key to combat hybrids is figuring out how to win more fights with fewer SP invested into combat skills and then spending those SP they saved on other shit they want to do. Like, try using shit like aimed strikes, positioning, consumables, etc.

tl;dr: You are a fucking scrub. Git gud.

Honest to God I have nothing to recommend. It's all fucking garbage. It should tell you something when a dumpster fire like A Song of Ice and Fire is the best the genre has produced in decades.

If you're really desperate try Prince of Thorns, it's mercifully short and Jorg isn't a complete waste of oxygen. On the other hand, you could try and read the Watchers of the Throne: The Emperor's Legion and Vaults of Terra: The Carrion Throne by Christ Wraight. Both are 40k stories that take place on Terra and focus almost exclusively on the Custodes, the Golden Throne and the Emperor and take place right around the Fall of Cadia, so important shit is happening and the overall plot of Warhammer is moving forward, plus, unlike that subversive kike ADB Wraight has a knack for writing likeable characters and not making the Emperor out to be a complete imbecile.

Much like with long running comics as the plot goes on it steadily starts going more and more shit. Sadly, since they all share the same overarching narrative you have to wade through the shit books to be able to understand what is going on in later titles. Then again, it's not like the authors are pretending it's high brow literature, but I prefer 40k over 30k since it's less about "muh daddy issues" and more "burn the fucking heretic".

Stop being so asspained. This ain't a dick-measuring contest. You have no answers to any of the shit I pointed out other than bitching and moaning again.

I tell you to git gud because you were bitching and moaning about the lack of SP when in reality hybriding is perfectly manageable. And while Dungeon Rats strongly encourages maxing the shit out of combat skills (because they are the only skills you get in DR) if you want to hybrid in AoD it's better to figure out how to win combat with fewer skillpoints invested in that shit and use those SP so your character can do other shit than just fight. There are also tons of ways to get extra SP in AoD if you git gud. Which brings me to the fucking point: You don't need a double SP cheat. You are just bad.

And just to recap: Autistic min-maxing is only necessary if you are going ridiculously far in developing bullshit builds that try to do fucking everything (which is possible). If you just want to hybrid, it is perfectly doable if you're smart about it. Just remember that hybriding is more about having 1 or 2 skills on the side that are high enough to be good than having 3-4 skills that are low enough to be unusable.

Evidently getting corrected like this deeply offends you somehow.

Dude, are you seriously pretending to be me now? Not only is there a pretty obvious disconnect between your obvious attempt at shitstirring about how too many people liking the game being a sign that you should avoid it (grats on being a hipster, btw) and my in-depth analysis of a guy's party above, but if you wanted to do that you should've just torposted. Ever since Mark removed names and shit torposters can't hash in case someone impersonates you so it's easy as fuck to pretend to be someone else.

Like, if you wanted to pretend to be me, there's an easier way of going about it.

There was not that much porn into it, it was enough for my young self but I think she may have been able to do abstraction of it and see the story and recommend me the book based on it. If I remember well, Imriel fucks his cousin the princess, a prostitute but it's alright because in Terre d'Ange (France) prostitution is revered, an italian mature woman (living the life) while he studies in not Rome and that's about it. I did end up reading the trilogy. The first trilogy is way more hardcore, it's about his adoptive mother who sense pain as pleasure, you see where this goes. It was easier to relate to a male character. Ok, she gets captured and assfucked with a spiky dildo in not India

Boom, welcome to my incredibly greased body that feels like trying to grab soap off of a state pen shower floor. I'd have so much grease on my body that the lighting fixtures would give me 2nd degree burns as I slide to the ring like Silver Surfer, comic book verson. I'd be so hard to get a hold of that my opponent would think I'm Jimmy Hoffa's body. Going for your stupid sumo palm strikes?

Want to over power me, DJ Jazzy Jeff? Look out for my newly cycled off slab of meat body with more holes in my ass than Interstellar has in it's plot. I'd lift you up like you're Simba in a VHS release of Lion King and slam you down like a pog on a schoolyard playground, chalk outline around your gi.

Black Company

Start with the first three books. The latter 6 kind of drag on, but they are good enough if you enjoy the series.

Yes, but it's still a damn bad pick. Is he doing scorching ray build or shit that he needs precise shot for his spells? Blaster caster is not a good way of doing things. It's generally acknowledged to be the worst way to play a Wizard. Although there are ways of cheesing out the damage to make it a lethal build, but generally it is acknowledged among good players that you should leave the fighting to the fighters while your Wizard uses magic to debuff enemies, reshape the battlefield to the party's advantage, and provide buffs to allies. There's also summoning minions and shit.

Fun fact, AoD actually starts with a quote from The Black Company:

The troll king was fucking hard. I died about 5 times to him, and what finally won me the battle was confusion wasting like 3 rounds for him. He essentially could not miss my 31 AC fighter and did 2d6+23 damage. My party was 7th level but barely squeaked by.

How about Fantasy that's also decent smut?

Amazon's Pledge series by Sarah Hawke. Decent world building, fast paced action, neat smut. Wizard mc adventures in company of 2 lethal ladies.

Way less smutty than above, but more action packed - Tamer: King of Dinosaurs by Michael-Scott Earle. normalfag gets dumped into Jurassic World experiment, has to survive with 3 monster girls. Starts off really… beta, but gets some spine hammered into him by the shit he faces.

There is also some good works to be found for free on Royal Road - lot of authors keeping up long running series there, with a decent tagging system to help with searches.

Update:

The problem is with the "Bloodline: Arcana" bloodline feature. Bog standard sorcerer with the arcane bloodline has this problem as well as eldritch scion with the same bloodline, but a sage sorcerer is exempt from it because the archetype replaces it with Arcane Bolt. I'm willing to bet it has something to do with the "does not stack with itself" or the "does not work on heightened spells" language.

I just dumped him in some busywork role in the town and take out a different group, thankfully you can ignore the insufferable/useless ones and still have them be 'some' use.

Dead Inquisitor woman is semi useful as a trap tester/healer. Once equipped with a heavy flail Harrim isn't too bad and Amiri, while annoying, is useful for bursting people, they're ok as a front row. With a eldrich scoundrel and magus merc employed for the back I've got mostly evil/neutral chaotics in play while the twee libfags are in town making me look nice to the plebs.

recently played Bard's Tale IV and they linked a bunch of dialogue to the voice selections. So even in an all merc party there is some constant banter - and there is even lasting sequences

(like the rowdy female making the shy one in my party cry once and than giving her a handerchief… and than later sperging out about the fun of slaughter and the shy one returning the handkerchief when she notices spittle on her face)

I wonder why Pathfinder team didn't do the same. Would cut down on any annoyance some players have with their stock npcs
