Do you like scythes? Do your characters ever use scythes? Have you ever done the cheesy thing with the Urgathoa scythe fighting style and the PoW Zenith strike?

The DM is encouraging world building in your app I think, so take advantage of it.

Okay, was watching TBFP Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, and decided to say, why not?

Here's a shitty wondrous item:

Blast Scabbard

This scabbard is designed to fit Katanas and other curved swords with a similar style. There is a trigger and a flintlock gun chamber on the scabbard.

If a katana (or a similar sword) is sheathed in this scabbard, you may choose to activate the Blast Scabbard as part of drawing that weapon. If you do so, you can make an attack with that weapon at your highest BaB, adding an extra 2d6 damage to that attack. After you use this attack, you must reload the Blast Scabbard (it is treated as a two-handed firearm for this purpose). Regardless of any other ability, you can only use the Blast Scabbard once per round.

A Blast Scabbard can have an enhancement bonus, and you add an extra 1d6+1 damage to the attack you can make as activating the Blast Scabbard for each point of the enhancement bonus. Additionally, a Blast Scabbard with an enhancement bonus gains a number of extra uses equal to its enhancement bonus. A Blast Scabbard can be enchanted as a Combat Scabbard can be.

Pricing: as an Amulet of Mighty Fists

I'm sure I can finagle a ruling for using the Blast Scabbard. It's a shitty idea but I like Iajutsu and Jetstream Sam is a COOL DUDE

Truth be told the whole Scythe motif with a couple of my older caster characters started off with a cleric named Jericho Folgnir, of whom once defeated a priest of Urgathoa, took his scythe, and then desecrated it by carving Pharisma's holy symbol over Urgathoa's.

When half of the players are going to be doing at most 3 rounds before being gone for good, yeah they should be building to be combatants first. You don't have enough time for a story, and you're not getting into the campaign, which makes the godhood part fucking pointless, so make something that you might enjoy in combat.

Jesus you're retarded. You don't have to be seeking godhood to make a good god. That is the point. It was not "Everyone should be Cayden," it was "You don't have to make your character around ascension. Even Cayden got made into a god."

Depends on the level.

Early game combat is pretty damn lethal because you don't have much healing and your hp is low enough for one lucky hit to end you.

Mid game combat is more balanced, but something/-body specifically geared towards combat will still be capable of downing most characters in a turn.

Late game combat essentially takes the risk of mid game combat and dials it up to maximum. Whichever side goes first wins, because almost everyone has either a save-or-lose effect, a shitton of damage, or some other fuckery.

Thanks for taking the time man, and I really do appreciate it, but I'm calling bullshit on that which is how I feel that my app is in a good place. Yeah, mechanically "smearing" isn't a thing, it was just a word I used because I liked it. But she's got Riven Hourglass, and the Warp Sphere, so bending time and space are certainly part of the character. As for her ideals being too vague, I think it's better that than be too narrow.

Again, appreciate it, just wanted to say that I probably won't be making changes.

>> No.52252318

The same way I feel when the GM makes it increasingly clear he's using the wrong fucking system for what he wants: like I want to stop playing.

I'd like to see if the reality is matching my theory.

Fair enough! If you're happy with it, that's all the matters. The one thing I'm going to re-iterate, is make sure to use the weirdness. There's a fuckton of potential in the idea of a PC spread across time and space, it would be a shame to not do anything unique/interesting with it.

But you can't help but think that FotJR is just basically the guinea pig group. Maybe it's just that /pfg/ pushes the Saturday characters harder, maybe it's that they ended up getting bogged down more by That Scene. Maybe it's just that everyone tires out sooner on Fridays than on Saturdays.

But it seems like they're definitely getting the shorter end of the stick, and if they fall apart because of it, the salt is going to fucking bury us all.

It's because none of the FotJR people know dick about each other, and since they're all RPing in a public chat it makes spinning off for hot spicy ERP a lot harder. Less time on ERP means more time being heroic.

Don't get me wrong, I quite like most of the characters from FotJR, but, as I was looking over the backstories and bios, it just feels like Saturday is the group that has an actual reason to be a part of the plot. With the except of Rubio, there's not a whole lot that ties the individual members of Friday to the overarching story, and (to a lesser extent) to each other.

Which is why my inquiry is being limited to SotJR.

I'd say that the greater problem might be having an initiating mount.

Ambush Hunter does that too, and better.

Should characters underestimate/dismiss female adventurers?

>> No.52252940

Depends on the setting. For the purpose of Golarion, the default assumption pretty much world wide is that female adventurers are at least equal to male adventurers if not inexplicably better for no good reason at all.

>> No.52252951

In Golarion there's explicitly less sexual dimorphism because humans were engineered to be fighting machines by aboleths. It's also why the average height is six feet tall.

So... probably not.

Other settings, meh. It's fantasy anyway.

Depends on the region. Cheliax probably would expect women to be mildly subservient to men of equal or greater rank, but allows women to rise based on ability. Brevoy and Taldor seem to have male-oriented primogeniture, but would probably make exceptions for skill, despite expecting that powerful women should settle down eventually to raise a family.

>It's also why the average height is six feet tall.
No, that's just to help you pick PCs and major supporting characters out of a crowd.

>> No.52253015


Depends on the local culture, I would think. If women are usually in more passive roles it might be easy to do so. Any experienced adventurer is going to get that idea knocked out of their head quickly though.

>Male: 4 ft. 10 +2d10 in.
(5 ft – 6 ft. 6 in.)
Average height is 4ft 10 inches +11 inches, or 5'9". Taldans might be taller thanks to lingering Azlanti heritage, and Shoanti /are/ taller, because they've been relatively homogeneous since the fall of Thassilon.

I swear I read that somewhere but I just checked the PRD and it's an average of 5'10" so fairs fair, I was wrong.

When women do it it's because they're being discriminated against and are victims, and when men do it it's just whining from weak wills?

Alignment doesn't have to do anything with your personality. Cocky Lawful Evil could just be smug, it could be a massive self-assurance that your plans will never fail, it could be setting up all your plots so that your opponents have a fair chance of winning just to make it more satisfying if they lose.

Hell, long as your philosophies fit the Lawful Evil range you could dip into traditionally chaotic personalities like being laughing mad or unreasonably sadistic. Think brutal warlord
