Pathfinder General /pfg/

Have you ever played/run a vampire game like DSP's Lords of the Night is supposed to let you play? Is it way too niche a concept for Pathfinder? Is it too fantasy WoD?

I was hoping to make a beefy frontline melee shaman but after looking at the spirit selection I'm not too impressed. How weak is a martial shaman compared to the standard support build?

So what are /pfg/'s thoughts on a /pfg/ game like this.

Persistent campaign with a ton of players technically in, idk, like 20 or something.

But rather than being a open clusterfuck, being "in" the game just means your can put in Apps for individual quests, which are the actual campaigns that would be run, single adventures that will probably take a month or two in real time with weekly games, then when its over every one re-apps for the next quest.

The applications are more literal, the monarch or whatever is the person reviewing your IC apps and deciding who to send on the next quest.

When not on a quest, everyone's character's can still do downtime stuff like share info on the overarching plot or whatever.

I guess I've never hard-and-fast-ruled this but in my mind, robot characters don't lack emotions or understanding, they just always have one exaggerated trait or purpose that they pursue with unnatural levels of drive. If the robot has a job as a guard and was (or thinks he was) made for it, he's utterly obsessed with it. He can think outside the box and carry on other conversation, but he'd always rather be doing, preparing for, or talking about his thing. If a robot's decided his role and purpose in a community is to be a suave joke-telling scoundrel at the pub, he pursues that with everything he has just the same.

The robot decides there's *one thing* that he's all about, and makes it so.

Our two PCs were Norgorber-worshiping sisters in Kasai, post-Ameiko. Our patron in the cult had given us a lead on a certain succubus, who had entered a pact with Norgorber's faithful. The succubus was bound to hand out a couple of profane gifts with no strings attached and absolutely no abuse of the link.

We followed the lead and discovered the erotic fiction of a certain writer. Said writer had legions of female fans all throughout Minkai, and many of his detractors claimed that his heavily fetishistic writings drove women astray or turned them depraved. This writer lived in a luxurious boat eternally on the bay, surrounded by guards who turned away all visitors. The writer also spoke of a certain "muse" woman who inspired him; we thought that the succubus was this "muse."

We traveled by rowboat to the writer's ship, and noted that the half-dozen guards were all female. While we were still on our rowboat, we tried to psychically compel the guards to let us through, with the help of luck-rigging mechanics to force the compulsions, but they proved to have exceptionally strong wills. They raised an alarm and threatened us with bows, since half of them were dedicated archers.

We acted first in the battle. After launching a fear effect at them, we discovered that they were utterly fearless; it dawned on us that they were paladins. My character teleported aboard the ship to instantly knock out one of the paladins. The ensuing battle was very difficult and nearly resulted in a party wipe; we had to make ample use of terrain and positioning to survive, and even then, only with sterling luck. Ultimately, we subdued the lady-paladins nonlethally out of curiosity on what was going on.

After having disarmed and disarmored the half-dozen paladins, we spotted another paladin girl. She had shed her full plate and was trying to swim towards the rowboat, while carrying a young boy. Presumably, this was the erotic fiction writer. After a few threats, we convinced her to get back on board with her master in tow.

That paladin-lady was confused by our off-handed mention of a succubus, so the little author boy invited us back to his opulent cabin. Thanks to remarkable skill and luck with Perception, our characters pointed out that he was, in fact, a girl. We explained to the kid that we were looking for "his" succubus muse... and my character directly asked "him" if "he" was, in fact, that very succubus. The "boy" proceeded to reveal his true form of a horned and winged succubus who could still pass for a young boy.

The succubus explained that her plan was to corrupt all of Minkai's women through excessively depraved erotic fiction. It was definitely working. She even showed us her trove of manuscripts, some of which were illustrated.

Some time ago, the succubus entered a pact with Norgorber's faithful to receive magical resources with which to conceal her alignment and demonic nature. She then wrote to a few of her contacts and beloved fans. She implored them to supply her with several female paladins, who would live with "him" and protect "him." She soon found herself with a handful of repressed paladins who were rabid fans of "his" erotic work, and were intent on defending the artist to the death.

We requested a couple more (non-sexual) favors from her apart from the profane gifts. In exchange, she now wants my painting-prodigy character to whip up a pornographic painting for her. She also wants us to bring one of the unconscious paladins to her cabin, so that she can spam suggestions on the lady-knight and get her to engage in wild and degenerate sex.

Well, I have some good news for you.

First, we have confirmation that the Mechanic will be able to do two things - first, they'll be able to get more out of a piece of armor or a weapon than other classes, capable of giving themselves short term buffs. Second, we know that Mechanics will be able to mod existing weapons to make them better.

We also have confirmation that mundane weapons will have scaling damage with level. It was noted that this is to help facilitate getting past needing shitloads of magic and still being unable to do one-shot builds, such as what Vital Strike was meant to do.

third, while magical enchanting will still be a thing, technology is meant to replace most aspects of what magic can do, and thus crafting can be entirely mundane and still achieve the same end. that's something I'm very much looking forward to.

My planned character for Starfinder is a Mechanic with a sniper rifle and an implanted AI buddy that does spotting for her. she'll build guns for herself and her team, mod the shit out of them, and provide fire from long range while the frontliners engage.

Like, they could even look at Warframe - you compare the Vectis, the Grinlok, and the Lanka and they're all completely fucking different in feel, damage, and way of use.

Seriously, this seems like it'd be such a simple way for them to cheese things out and make a lot of content. Sure, they have some generic guns in the core game, but in supplements they can put out shit like specialty weapons from a corporation, certain types of weapon variants from different races, new mods for old parts of the weapon, and so on.

They have a chance to just straight up print money because people will eat that shit right up, and I am so fucking worried they'll botch it by only including generic versions of the guns in question.

You don't apply to PLD because the game's cool. It's not. It's a mediocre rape fantasy run by an egomaniac.

The problem is hype focus, for Starfinder.

When I saw all the "Science fiction Pathfinder" games coming up, I decided to not play any of them. not only does my schedule not allow it, but Pathfinder isn't made for it, and that's eminently clear in the way the game deals with armor and guns interacting. It's frankly pretty fucking terrible in that respect, and 3pp can't seem to fix it because they're trying to patch a system that wasn't built for it.

the people who aren't joining these games don't want to join not because it's sci fi, but because it's not the right Sci Fi. they want a game that can actually run the shit they want to work with without jumping through hoops and a mountain of houserules to get it to work at all.

How's it even possible that the /pfg/ Discord exploded in a few days because of those two?

Iunno, for me despite being on Channel 4 since 2009-ish, it's just about finding like minded individuals because even Anon gets lonely sometimes.

Hey now, let's be fair. I just went through the logs of the old /pfg/ Discord. Darjeeling and Kawase both joined last Thursday afternoon/evening EST...

But Darjeeling's got 35 pages of messages from them while Kawase's got 133. So Kawase has typed 3.8 times as many messages as Darjeeling.

And Darjeeling said they'd always been posting on /vg/, so they can't JUST be a Roll20 rando who wandered in.

I mean, it's kinda impossible for two guys who joined the Discord last Thursday to totally implode it, right?

The biggest problem with that is that the mere mention indicates they're going to make it fucking matter.

It shouldn't matter. It shouldn't even be a thing.

But they made it a thing. Which means that, absalom station will be just as pointless and ignored forever as absalom city was, and at least one AP will be all about dem vestiges of golarion because oh, oh golarion so powerful so ancient so wonderful so lost so mysterious, golarion golarion, this is the dawning of the age of golarion, golarioooooonnnnnn

The one girl in your guild. Sure, there's probably plenty of females in your guild, but there's only one who reminds you at every turn how she's a girl and she's not like other girls and BTW she wants you to meet her on the RP server because she's totally DTF

She left because people suggested shutting down the general channel to avoid arguments, and she said there was no point because then the discord would just be 'the same advice you get on /pfg/, but with names attached'.
It was the "if you want to talk with friends but not about pathfinder then you don't belong here" mentality that did it.

Which is fair, I mean, there are other chats on that channel for legit use. The real problem is the reluctance to smack someone misbehaving with the ban hammer, discord TOS update making people skittish, and some people that really, really, REALLY don't know when to shut the fuck up.
