The confusion is that most calculations in Pathfinder don't take fractions into account, save for BAB. Average of a die is always a flat number, so for d8 it's either 4 or 5 in most calculations.

I have ideas based on, sort of, "vietnam war" inspired imagery. But instead of soldiers creeping through a forest at night trying to avoid the NVA/Vietcong, its a PC Party in Pathfinder trying to manouver their way through the trees and bushes. (I'll leave the reasons they need to make through the forest to your own imagination).
Out of the darkness, shots are fired.
Not bullets or arrows..spore pods!?
What do the PC's do? Take cover!
The unseen enemy is somewhere in the dark woods shooting at them. But are they hiding?
The PC's don't realize that the Unseen enemy is literally part of the forest itself.
One of the PC's is hit! But by what? (the spore pods burst and the spores may not be visible to the naked eye, especially at night).
Then the PC starts acting strangely...

Players who feel a strong need to tell you about their system mastery and to display their system mastery in-game are wankers.
>>
Players with system knowledge but not system mastery are the best players. They'll know how to play the game without actively powergaming. You can't change my mind.

Because HP is still tied to your essence, something that you intimately feel as a part of yourself. Not blocking it with your AC brings an awareness that the blow took away a part of you that might not have physically been there. If metaphysical traits like Alignment or the planes are accepted to be tied to one's emotions, then it would probably cause an increased sensation of entirely rational fear.

This is a completely different system. You could probably use the house creation system to create a minor clan, or a vassal family to holds a specific province, but that's all, and none of the stats would mean anything because it's not the same system.

Hey guys, I would appreciate input on how to balance a reality warping based magic. "Normal" magic exists and is widely known in the world, but some arcane practitioners can after lifetime of study to pierce the veil and see the divine machinations that run reality. These individuals can learn to control probability itself, and manipulate situations that happened in the past to gain some advantage.

At the most basic level I'm thinking of allowing the caster to affect things like deciding how a dice falls or which card you pick from a deck. Things that you can manipulate in the present moment. More advanced uses could be affecting things that happened in the past. Like willing that the shopkeep forgot to lock his door when he left for the night, or an officer spilled ink on the parchment when writing down the turns for guard duty, causing the guards to miss a shift.

How do you do reality warping powers in your games? How would you balance them?

Flayed Ones could be made into more of a big deal. Make the Bone Kingdom of Drazak the basis for an alternate type of Necron force, along with other dynasties who've become dominated by the plague.

Their miniatures could have flayed faces from species other than humans, skinless eldar corpses screaming as they're dragged behind them.

They're also some of the easiest things to convert possible. Just replace warrior hands with spiky things and use paint/green stuff/undead bits/any bits to add gore.

>>67397688
This is a good idea. I always wanted to do a necron force built around a core of flayed ones with any other units showing their own signs of early infection or other assorted mania-based self-mutilations. That one bit of lore in the chaos nights codex about a band of flayed ones following around a gore covered dreadblade was pretty radical as well. Having rules to reflect necrons that are more deeply fucked up from the long sleep, daemonic viruses and eldritch c'tan curses would be a really cool way to show some broader gradient in their forces and character. I've also heard people talk about ideas for necron slave armies, which could be an interesting counter balance to show the other side of the spectrum.

Also bring back pariahs. Even if only character models more directly reflective of
culexus assassins.

Long story short, inspired by older drow lore of not all city-states being run by Lolth's priesthood, I came up with an idea for a small (but growing) drow city-state founded by break-away drow wizards, sorcerers and other arcanists, created (led?) by a half-mad priest of Malyk. In a nutshell, membership in the city is only open to drow with talent for arcane magic, and Lolth's worship is forbidden, to the point they don't even allow female drow into the city and are working on magical ways of "getting around" the obvious problem that presents. How do I expand upon this idea and make it interesting/into a functioning location? Especially whilst ignoring the magical realm stuff?

>>
>>67396474
Evil people can fall in love and not be evil on a family level, I could imagine a portion of the drow would be so into the idea of a female companion that's not a Lolth worshipper that they would go to great lengths to court one.

That was probably me when I was in some sort of bad mood, but the process is actually pretty simple. You load a folder that you name "custom" with all the files you want to inject into the character builder and then put that where you installed the character builder, navigate there in command prompt, and run "cbloader.exe -p" and use the character builder executable from then on. The only problem is that sometimes it doesn't quite work for some fucking reason. Moot point if your process works, though.

Consider some good old-fashioned skill substitution. You are a deva with a racial +2 Religion, so Binding Mastery should be a great help in social skill challenges, for example:
http://funin.space/compendium/feat/Binding-Mastery.html

Binding Mastery can also be replicated by the Occultist theme.
http://funin.space/compendium/theme/Occultist.html

The Ghost of the Past theme is absolutely fantastic for skill challenges, too, given the double rolls.

Tinkering around with Roll20 on an dead game, but I've got 2 questions that I think you can answer without me having to spend an hour to figure it out.

Firstly how do you get that prompt to appear? I've seen it in 3.5 on Roll20, but never knew such a thing existed in 4E.

Secondly (but this 1 is more optional) do you know how to get powers to look like this? I'm looking on the 4E sheet on the Roll20 wiki, and there's a giant brick of code, I tried copying and pasting it into a macro, but I got a substring error.

I cannot read code so I hardly understand a thing being said on that page. If you don't know/is too complicated it's fine, this is just purely aesthetic and I'm used to the way the Roll20 handles powers anyway.

Was the role system ultimately a good thing or something that held 4e back for players?
