EhnJolly said about 2 hours ago
I am reading over these suggestions, and something I want to note here is that so many of these are a radical overhaul to the system that we couldn't implement these in a reasonable amount of time. We only have so much time to work on this, and massive system wide changes like this are going to change so much about the mechanics as to delay things much more than we'd like. At this point, we're hoping to try and implement smaller changes to fix existing issues such as focus cycling, although with the amount of strong swift actions we have, we'd like to think that choosing to regain focus or keeping one's swift action is still a difficult choice in and of itself.

MichaelSayre said 4 minutes ago
We don't really agree that there's any fundamental flaw in focus, just some issues with the current way things interact that we're working on fixing. A complete rewrite of the book simply isn't going to happen, both because we don't agree that such is necessary, and because we don't have the time or money to throw out a perfectly serviceable and functional system for something that a majority of players may or may not consider "better". More than that, many suggested "fixes" are actually things we already tried and discarded for various reasons early in development, so while we're not going to go around telling everyone "sorry, tried that and it sucks", there are suggestions we aren't going to be able to run with because we've already been down that road and we know how it ends.

Silvia is solid. Weird and has a horror-tinge to her, but really solid. I like that the character has a driving force (discovering more about herself), and I equally like that there's some great sci-fi influence put into the app as well. Good post modern ideas like ghost in the shell and stuff like that has been put into this app.

This character is intensely weird, but she has a right to be, and they're using an interesting class (I've actually never seen an occult class played!) This app accomplishes pretty much everything it sets out to do, creating a backstory of a weird paranoid android that occasionally fucks up the world around them with their brain. With that said, I think there's not much room for improvement because its already on the strong side design wise.

This has been explained to you already.

People thought there was only going to be slots for 4 people, in one game.
Then it ended up being 12 people, in two games. 4 of which were friends of the GM, 3 or 4 of which were "big names". That's still 4 people who got completely out-of-nowhere and selected for the games anyway, with three times as many slots as was first assumed.

Backstory - 5/5 A well designed overall character and backstory that builds into and justifies all of her little problems, including her paranoia. It also gives her an antagonist faction hook, which is also cool.
Characterization - 4/5 This is probably personal bias, but I don't super like the 'curious and new to the world' trope, and it mixes a little oddly with her paranoia. A little work in tying her paranoia into her own curiosity about herself would bump this.
Signature System - 3/5 A rather boring signature system as its a straight boost, but it gets the job done, can't complain but would love to see something a bit more creative.
Mecha-ness - 3/5 She feels a little more like a cyber-punk character than a Mecha character, but she's compelling and the two settings can be somewhat close. I feel like trying to mecha her up anymore and she would be less interesting. Her being slightly outside the genre is her appeal in this case.

Thats it, I like Silvia quite a bit, ONWARDS

Pixie is quite obviously a character written by someone who has watched a pile of mecha, Pixie ticks all the boxes. Her backstory is solid, and justifies who she is and her motivations, as well as how she picked up her mech and everything the GM seems to want, its REALLY solid in that respect, and its solidly written to boot

However it mostly tells us about Pixie's past, and just gives us a few ideas as to who she is. Pixie is unfortunately, something that I hate, even if its justified. She's a kind of standard 'knows nothing about the world' character, and as such is a mostly blank slate, I do appreciate that her outbursts of rage and such were added to her personality, as it will likely protect her from becoming a Rei clone.

But that's just a personal taste thing.

Did the DM approve Elans as a race btw?

Backstory - 5/5 Pixie has everything I like to see, hints towards characterization, possible plot hooks for enemies, possible plot hooks for allies, justification for having a nearly unique machine
Characterization - 4/5 Points off for the blank-slate thing. I just find it kind of lazy characterization and something I don't really like. Its all justified and such, but I have my prejudices.
Signature System - 2/5 This is... Rather poorly written and seems to just be 'do everything you do better at some risk'. Maybe its just a wording problem. I know what its trying to get across.
Mecha-ness - 5/5 Cyber newtype girls are a classic mecha trope, and Pixie is one to a T.

I applied to a game in which the PCs were vampire hunters who had been freshly killed and turned into vampires themselves, and now had to contend with their new natures.

This backstory is Solid, but it shares the problems that Wiseman has, where as the character is a very solid badass mercenary type, he similarly lacks a driving force to push him to join the PMC. In fact this seems like a character that wouldn't want to join the PMC really.

A touch there would bring this backstory that is pretty solid, and a character thats got a driven personality to a fully built character. He just needs that touch to fully integrate with the story itself.

This is another strong app that I struggle to bring real criticisms against, my other one would be that he doesn't feel particularly mechy-y, its not like he's dissonant with the tone either.

Characterization - 5/5 Solid all around, even going down to things like how he dresses, this is a very fleshed out character
Signature System - 5/5 This is a winner and cool as heck, electrified attacks and enhanced tactical stuff is super nice. This is what a signature system should look like.
Mecha-ness - 3/5 A solid mecha-y character, he doesn't tick the boxes like others, but he fits in the setting and I like his style as kind of a gentlemanly pilot.

You're going to have to math at me here, because I'm not seeing it.
If your STR is +10 and you're powerattacking for +10, the difference is 10 points if you don't 2hand. That's less than what you can get off a sure-hit 4x multiplier unless your base damage sucks ass. And if you take an enemy out of commission for 2.5 rounds with a stun-strike, that's generally enough time to wipe their allies uncontested.

I really think that the issue isn't in the +damage low level maneuvers but instead in the level 1 access to +damage stances and boosts.

This is a fucking good thing and I can't believe what I'm reading. The ability to constantly kill threats with good action economy is what makes Path of War characters worthwhile. The DCs are already criminally static and they need to be more reliable if you're going to take that from Initiators.

The thing is that Barbarians were one of the few acceptable martials *because* they could deal enough damage reliably to make direct damage a threat.

I talked about it here last year.

I had a grand plan of running a 25PB game with PoW and Psionics in the part of Faerun that was based of the Delian League of the Mediterranean.

The game would start in 1368 DR and go through the Roll of Years, so they would defend their barley farms from Sahaugin, Shadovar, Drow, rogue Dragons, Thayan refugees, and maybe participate in Xorvintaal.. Depending on which city-state the PCs allied with, they could be merchant princes, senators, or abandon the country for a Planescape game.

Basically, I would ignore Golarion, most of the 3.5 - 5E campaign setting changes, and use 2E Forgotten Realms material.

I couldn't get any players from the LGS to sign up. My schedule has also gotten worse.

This is the heart of the damage debate. I started playing playing Path of War classes because I did the math and I saw that I could achieve pseudo-full attack numbers with standard attacks or standard + swift. This opened up a whole world of combat to me. If my standard action attacks go back to being a basic attack with a minor bell or whistle, I'll just use full attacks. I have no incentive to do anything else.

Barbarians have other things they can do with their action as well, but nothing comes close to being as useful as a full attack. That's the metagame.

The comments about raising Maneuver DCs is a valid one, because whatever I'm doing has to be more effective at ending the fight than just making a fistful of attacks.

I may be slow, but don't let it be said that I'm not making the attempt for these when life isn't getting in the way. Unfortunately, the need to wake up pretty early tomorrow means at best I'll be rolling after this to see who I'm going to have to give a highly delayed review to next.

Kirha Kirhanna; LG Female Catfolk
Battle Butler | Warlord (Desperado)
>Be child of poor catfolk family with a history of working as servants to Chellish nobles
>Aspire to make her service valuable, because that’s what a good servant does
>gets enrolled in an etiquette school
>which also happens to be a splinter group of the Empire’s assassin’s guild
>focused entirely around training servants to nobility
>her first posting is to a family with a ruined estate, and she gets an odd request
>rather than attend the mansion, how about an adventure on behalf of her employer?
>go participate in some deep jungle expeditions, maybe grab some rare plants, and the position of Head Maid will be yours!

I walked into this expecting to immediately despise Kirha, but the complete refuge in audacity of the character made the entire thing loop around to being kind of endearing the more I look it over. The backstory doesn’t have a whole lot to really talk about. It’s goofy, it’s dumb, it’s right at home in a harem comedy anime. I can kind of see her working, especially considering how she’s explicitly from Sargava, but the absurd nature of EAGER alone feels like it would force the campaign’s tone to conform to the character.

Rolled 4 (1d27)

>>53262482
The personality section makes up the other half or so of the app, and… Feels really bloated compared to her backstory. Throwing out the fetish maid aesthetic of the art and pretending the premise isn’t absurd, she looks pleasant enough at her core, but I can’t help but feel like most of this could be trimmed without hurting the character as a whole. It’s still entertaining, but just feels like filler.

The Good
>While the concept IS absurd, most of it is admittedly just background noise that
>Honestly, in a game that abandons all pretenses of trying to stay true to “pulp action flick”, she looks like she could end up being the thing holding the party together

The Bad
>The motivation just isn’t there, and that hurts more than anything
>it’s still trying to play a joke from the wrong genre straight, and will require the rest of the group to buy into it
>oh come on, you’re a combat maid trained by an assassin guild splinter group called EAGER, you can’t tell me it’s not a joke
>telling people to not sexualize the cat won’t stop them

Backstory 6/10 - As dumb as it is, the very nature of the application just makes it kinda fun to read. It’s a dumb but still an entertaining premise, one of my guilty pleasures.
Compatibility 5?/10 - She’s got Warlord on one side, so she’ll always have some semblance of usefulness. I can’t really guess at what Battle Butler will actually bring to the table with the quick glance I gave it, though.
Wanderlust 1/10 - She’s here because her employer said so, and beyond being a good servant, hasn’t got anything to keep her invested in things.
Overall Pulpiness 2/10 - She seems more at home in a Light Novelist’s take on a pulpy adventure flick.
Bonus: While I feel neither character is really fitting for the campaign they’re applying to, Kirha and Akane appear as though they would bounce off one another well, especially now that I actually look at them side-by-side.

I think 4e and 5e made a lot of the Small races like 4' tall and make the boundary of Small into a wobbly "four and a half feet maybe" instead of "exactly four feet", which probably has influenced a bunch of art for halflings/gnomes/kobolds indirectly.

At 2:50, it's revealed that Shang's sword wasn't even metal, it was actually wood painted silver. Unfortunately for the villains, his ki control is so good he can project sword ki through a simple branch and still cut them from afar, sort of like the Wave strikes from Mithral Current. This is why he calls himself "Edgeless Blade". The last technique in the clip was a pressure point attack to make the enemy's ki detonate within their body. Shang would know this move because he's actually adapting his Monk martial arts to swordplay, like reverse Broken Blade.

It wouldn't be "completely changing", though. It would just make low-level maneuvers have the same saves of high-level maneuvers, and your max level maneuvers would have the same saves they do now, give or take 1 point depending on exact level (e.g. 1st level maneuver at IL 2 -> DC 11+stat, 9th level maneuver at IL 18 -> DC 19+stat).

Speaking as someone who can make that decision, the problem is that even if something seems, on paper, to be a simple fix ("change two sentences,") in practice, it might not be.

The hypothetical change to maneuver DC scaling, /regardless/ of its merit as an idea, runs into the issue of scope. There are things that an errata can and can't do. A major concern with the PoW errata is the fine line between fixing as many problems as we can, versus making a document that's unwieldy and difficult for people to use. These books have been printed in hard copy; forcing people to reference a large PDF (or printout) of the errata is already an issue—if you thought the Ultimate Equipment errata was a mess because of how many things it went through and changed, think about what the PoW errata is going to look like.

Changing the maneuver scaling means that a significant chunk of maneuvers now have text that outright contradicts the rules; it's not something we have the ability to feasibly /fix/, within the context of an errata.

Believe me, I'm frustrated by this problem, too. I highly recommend houseruling the maneuver DC scaling, if you think that that's a good fit for your group, but it's just not something that DSP can do in this project.

Sazra + kobolds would be obvious cuteness and entertaining personality conflicts. She's got elements of over-cheerfulness and paranoia like both of the detailed ones.

Sazra + Cornelius would probably lead to some amusingly stupid bullshit where he treats her like a lesser servant and she plays along to steal everything out of his purse when he's not looking.

Sazra + Caleni would lead to SNEAK BUDDIES.

Sazra + Amalthea would probably involve some buried maternal instinct, because the vast majority of wyvaran children are sickly runts because of poor nutrition, bad environment, etc, so she'd be all overprotective of THE BAAAAABY.

Sazra + Priscilla would lead to Priscilla alternately getting coddled and taken advantage of.

Sazra + Wendifu -> "WHAT'S UNDER THE MASK I WANNA SEE"

It's pretty simple, if it's the one I'm thinking of:

1. Take 5 levels of fighter
2. Take 1 level of brawler
3. Use the brawler Martial Flexibility ability to temporarily get the Advanced Weapon Training feat, and use it to pick the Item Mastery weapon training, and use that to get the Teleportation Mastery item feat, which now lets you cast Dimension Door a few times using any magic item you have a weapon group in.
4. Take the Dimensional Agility series of feats. Once you get to Dimensional Dervish, you can use Dimension Door to full attack, teleporting in between each attack.
5. In combat, use Martial Flexibility -> Advanced Weapon Training -> Item Mastery -> Teleportation Mastery, use Dimensional Dervish to full attack until you've exhausted uses of it, then use Martial Flexibility again to reset your X/day uses by picking it as a "new" feat again.

Yes! Yes it is! This is what an errata is! That's what errata is like! Being able to correct the balance without actually rewriting every entry is errata gold. Developers dream they can fix a big chunk of their game with a few short sentences and not have to meticulously reconsider every single entry.

Ideally, we want to minimize confusion and maximize ease of integrating the errata with the book. Not every maneuver has changes being made; in fact I expect /most/ maneuvers won't have changes. Regardless, it's still a change to the system that'd affect multiple books, and cause the book to lie to the reader in ways that most of the changes wouldn't. This is an adjustment that makes /every single/ maneuver that has a save DC incorrect, as-printed, as opposed to going in and fixing a rules break or applying a buff or nerf.

This is a change that affects multiple books and PDFs, and is something that is quite easy to never realize, because it's so small. Someone who picks up, say, PoW E or Fool's Errand will now have a PDF or book that outright lies to them, not because it was errata'd, but because a separate book in the base system was.

It's not a change that I, personally, oppose from a game design standpoint. But from a feasibility standpoint, both I and DSP as a whole do not believe that it's a workable fix for a project like the PoW errata.

This may change! It's entirely possible, after discussions, that we'll consider going for a sidebar with a suggestion/variant like >>53263455 recommends, but /that/ is actually over my head and something that needs to be discussed internally at a time other than 1:30am EST.

In any case, thank you for the time and energy taken to discuss this. This conversation and the parts of it /are/ going to be taken into consideration, and weighed against the extant issues with this project, but it's not a decision that can be made tonight.
