I thought that dude in the picture had the lelf face for a second. I wish for a poorly done Photoshop job.

Also, as for OP's question... We have no Rogue anymore but we have a Diviner Wizard, so the scouting is easy. I do feel kind of bad for basically forcing the DM to draw entire dungeon maps before we even stop through the dungeons' thresholds.

In every game I've personally experienced, Anon, it's been that way. And I've been in a bunch of games. Not long lasting games. But ones wherein PC romance has been a thing and it's never contributed to longevity. And games wherein I've done the romance, and games wherein I've seen the romance. Maybe one in fifty games can do it well and make it work. But I don't want to be in the other forty nine games

When players focus more on each other than the group as a whole, it isn't fun. Having two people go off in the middle of the night for "tee hee LEWD THINGS" and potentially ignoring everybody else for the sake of their own enjoyment is honestly awful. It hurts the focus of the game.

Personally, I make it clear I don't like PC/PC romances, and I tell my players I don't want any of it. NPC/PC romances are fine, they can get pushed to the side so that we can focus on the game, and gives me as a GM more to work with.
>>
>>57942298
Not him, but party romance is like workplace romance. It's awkward for anyone else to be involved in the romance. The Proper way to have PC romance is that the party should be 90% unaware the romance is even happening, because they keep it between themselves.

When adventuring, the unspoken rule is that the Party is the first priority (the reasons for this can change, and it may seem like its not, but if the cogency of the Party isn't a priority for someone then that PC won't be long for the campaign). When two PC's get into romance, their romance is above the needs of the party. Not to mention that it adds drama and conflict that could be unnecessary ("Why didn't you give me that loot", "Why did you help them instead of me", etc) that the rest of the party has to deal with.

I'm in a game that includes a PC romance, but the relationship is a polyamorous one that includes more than two PCs. Not the whole party mind you, but still. So hypothetically, how would you react if the entire party starts dating itself?

>>57942420
As a DM I actually prefer PC/PC romances because I can focus on the game without having to cater to the PCs' romantic interests- they'll already have screentime, I don't have to go out of my way to give any to them. So far it hasn't ever caused me problems, but romance has also generally been a backseat thing to the real gameplay too. Never once have I ever seen anything like the issues >>57942440 mentioned. That's just my own experience though.

>>57942607
There seems to be an evil noble plotting a vague conspiracy, and despite the PCs supposedly working for him, he doesn't know we know- or at least we think he doesn't know we know. In and out of character, we don't know a whole lot about what he's trying to achieve, but he was ready to use us as unwitting pawns and send us off to be sacrificed, so we've still got a personal motivation to stop him.

Living Weapon PC anon here.

I'm having trouble finding a solid idea for the 'independent' Orientation. In my mind they are more focused on spells and providing spells to their Wielder if they have one. The kind of weapon where even if you're a level 1 peasant NPC, if you have the weapon you could be a pew pew lightning wizard on the spot. If they don't have a wielder though, they can still be somewhat deadly: telekinesis to throw themselves around, flying, influencing others to ignore them or pick them up, etc

At this point all Living Weapon PC's are 4th level casters using a custom spellbook option, with the exception of Independent Orientations which will be 6th level casters.

Really just looking for feedback on ways to make that distinction more clear or help solidify the concept of that Orientation.

cancel the game or leave. I'm not dealing with that shit. I came to slay, not to lay.

I don't mind doing NPC/PC romances, because it's less effort on my part to give someone their "precious waifu" and handle that off of session time. PC/PC romance almost ALWAYS came up during the session and dragged us away from the actual game. Again, anecdotal stories.
>>
>>57942864
I think PC romances are a bigger issue in text based games the elsewhere. In voice or IRL, it's easier to describe what your PC does with other PCs and you aren't as restricted in describing what or who your character pays attention to.

>>57942944

>>57942864

>>
It's okay to be Varisian.
>>
>>57942980
The problem is when they make exploring their characters more important than the enjoyment of the party. Or rather than exploring their characters, they're actually exploring themselves via their characters, which makes the emotions personal and lead to Drama with a capital D. As a DM, I'm in charge of running an adventure for the entire party, not in charge of putting together a date night for my PC's. If they want to pursue a romance they need to find time to do it on the side.

There's nothing wrong with PC romance if the players are responsible about it and it really is just about their characters and they don't make their romance the entire party's problem. The issue is that a lot of people can't make that distinction. Therefore it's generally safer to just not allow it as a general rule until you trust who your players are.

As a player, I agree with you halfway. It isn't about me or my needs completely, but it is about the party as a whole, which I contribute to. And I personally do not enjoy PC/PC romance.

As a GM, fuck you, I want to have fun too- I'm the one running the game. PC/PC Romance hasn't ever been fun for me as a GM. I'll reiterate what this anon (>>57943065) says instead of devolving into anger. I want to run a /game/, not a visual novel.

You don't enjoy watching your players create multi-faceted characters? That's just sad.

Navel-gazing crap isn't multifaceted, especially when it's mid-session that cuts into the GM's time. The only sad thing is you expect the GM to wait on you hand and foot. Do a side session on your own time.

>>57943210

>Yes, and you're one of those. It's EVERYONE, not everyone else. If you're not having fun, nobody is going to really have fun.

Do you honestly think the only way for a GM to have fun is by rolling dice? If the players wanted to spend a session just sitting and chatting around the campfire, would you veto that because there wasn't any murder?

I love seeing my players engage with the world I've created, and with each other. Having players willing and able to do that is a gift, I don't know why you'd squelch it.
>>
>>57943187

I enjoy rolling dice. Pathfinder is a crunch-heavy game, why not roll dice? Doesn't stop me from enjoying a session dedicated to chatting around the campfire- though i would prefer it be done off of session time, during side RP. Because the point of getting everybody gathered up for a session is to move forward in the plot.
>>
>>57943442
>They can do it on a different day, on a side session. Not on the GM's time.

So, in your mind, the purpose of GMing is to drive the players through your plot, and only your plot, because that's what immediately concerns you? That sounds like a godawful time, anon. I stand by my statement that you have no idea how to GM, and have probably never done so.

>You're literally trying to defend players not engaging with the world and with each other instead, claiming it makes them multifaceted.

I'm defending characters spending some time connecting with each other, and exploring positive emotions rarely seen in a game that's often about murder and looting. Thereby revealing another side of their characters, or another "facet", since you seemed to fail to grasp the meaning of the term.

>They shouldn't be surprised if the GM walks off.
MY TIME MUST BE SPENT ON MY PLOT AND ONLY MY PLOT. I AM THE GM, THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON AT THE TABLE.

Do you understand how asinine that stance is? Players don't walk off when it's another PC's turn to be in the limelight; why do you think that behavior is acceptable when coming from the other side of the screen?

This matches my experience with in game romances too. PC/NPC are too much work for me as the GM, PC/PC tends to be fine since players understand boundaries and largely keep their relationship out of the game beyond rare mentions when appropriate. Sounds like you either need to get better friends or look for your games in better places.

I have. Multiple times.

It always ended up a shitshow when people kept flaking, or schedules got changed, or somebody took issue with something somebody else said. Or when somebody derails it so hard and so early I have no choice but to say "fuck it, campaign's over."

I WANT to run a game, though. The one thing I've never had (apart from a single one-shot that amounted to about three encounters) is a game that starts and then actually finishes.
>>
>>57943995
Then run more oneshots. Collect players you like. It takes a lot of time, but that's time you might've otherwise wasted on bamboozles and shitshows, and instead you have a bunch of (hopefully) fun oneshots.

This is a big hurdle, but you need to be able to set an end date.

What dimensions do you think a typical bipedal large-sized creature would consider a comfortable amount of space for a room? For a medium creature I'd say it's probably at least 10x10x10, enough room to stand up at full height and to move around- so maybe 15x15x10 if there's anything actually in the room like furnishings which would take up space. So for a large creature, I'm guessing something like 25x25x15 for a furnished room?

Wow, what a funny coincidence that they were all apparently studying Demonic right before the first time a demon makes an appearance in the campaign.

On the whole if you have a problem with it, and want to maintain mystique around the letters, tell the players that this is an obscure/coded dialect of it, and while a rank in linguistics and knowledge of demonic will help, they're still going to have trouble. Offer them the choice to re assign the skill rank if they want.

The session is already over and I let them roll with it, so it's actually a bit past the point to be changing stuff short of a retcon I don't want to do, but I really meant to ask about what I SHOULD have done, not what I still could do. I'm totally fine with the PCs knowing what the letters say and being able to understand Demonic in general, it's just that up to this point in the campaign demons have had ZERO presence (before now most of the campaign has been dealing with helping to safeguard this town from monsters and investigating the local ruins). Not only that, but only one PC has been putting ranks in Linguistics to learn new languages- for the other PCs that picked up Demonic, this is literally the first new language their characters have learned all game. I wasn't wanting to maintain a mystique about the letters, I'm just bothered by how much of a perfect coincidence it would have to be in-game for all their PCs to have been studying Demonic just in time for the demons to show up, especially when nothing about such studies was ever brought up. It's weird metagaming that I don't like, especially since I had already planned to make the language barrier a non-issue for them.

>This is also part problem with PF's very unrealistic language learning rules
I also hate this but I accept it as a reasonable compromise since the alternatives are just worse. I do nerf and/or raise the level of spells that circumvent language barriers, though.
>>
>>57946221
For me this all depends on whether or not you're going to start up this new session with them already back in town or not, if so then this is a very simple fix: there's someone in town that taught them the language.

If they're still on the road when things start up again then I can definitely see where the issue is, personally I try to never take a language unless I'm somewhere where it's reasonable for me to have learned it from someone else. If this bothers you that much then perhaps tell your players that's what they should restrict themselves to for at least some semblance of realism.
>>
>>57946318
Yeah, they're still on the road. Well, they were when that session started, at least. The session picked up right where the last one left off, with the PCs continuing to walk through the woods back to town, except now suddenly the PCs decided to stop and read those letters that they couldn't read twenty minutes ago when they first pulled them off the dead guy's body.

I mentioned briefly how weird I thought this was but they all laughed and joked, thinking I was making a joke out of it myself. So that's part of why I'm wondering whether it's weird for me to be bothered by this.
>>
>>57946384
Not anon that's been replying. Rather than trying to somehow imply your complaint and hope one of them would convince the others not to for some reason, you should have just said so up-front that they can't understand a new language at the very least until they get into town.

There are some things you can be gentle with surrounding correcting your Players, but things that bother you that much aren't one of them.
>>
>>57946384
Nah it's definitely weird. Leave it for now and let them know that from here on out if they're looking to learn a language they should wait to get back to town first. You'll even let them put a rank into Linguistics whenever they level up, but they can't spend that point on a language until they get to somewhere someone can teach them the language they want to know.

>>57947202
As long as the vancian caster isn't a full caster it's fine. I've DMed for a mixed party a couple of times, and the only problems came from power differences between sphere casters and a relatively optimized Wizard.
Vancian half and 2/3 casters aren't really strong enough to outperform sphere casters, except maybe a Magus, but even then it's just doing one thing very well as opposed to a spherecaster's ability to do a couple of things very well

Slashing Grace requires you to use a weapon one handed in order to get the Dex to damage meaning it doesn't work for normal monk or brawler's flurry since it counts as Two-Weapon Fighting.

What about the Unchained Monk's flurry, it only gives you an extra attack so I assume but I just want to make sure.

Making a dm screen, and I'm gonna paint some sort of mostly minimal *something* on the cover of it. I started thinking symbols, and went down the rabbit hole of esoteric imagery and eventually into the specifics of stuff from /x/- the general issue I have is I've already spent like, a good 4 hours looking for something to put on there and I just figure it'd be easier to see if anyone else had any good ideas. This seemed like a good place to poke, if none of yall have any ideas I'll go bigger and try a thread on /x/
The most important part is the screen is 4 panel, so I need to either do 2 different designs that visually balance each other out at the center, or 2 more and fill each backside
symbols like these are too simple, I'd need a more complicated design. It doesn't have to have super real meaning either, it could be esoteric garbage and not a serious symbol. I don't believe the stuff anyway.
>>
>>57949868
If you're just looking for neat esoteric shit to put on your screen, you could use the holy Septagrammaton, a Word called Royalty: YS ATUN VRAMA PRESH, the seven syllables of Royalty and the false seven part name of God. "The conquering king must speak with both his internal tongue of self-love, and his external tongue of violence: he must proclaim himself a king not with a tongue of flesh, but an iron tongue soaked in the blood of his lovers." The Glory, The Tower, The Flame, The Diamond, The Blade, The Mind, and The Beast.

Then just use whatever nonsense scriptures you want from K6BD's concordances, maybe a spooky looking version of some of the texts or something a-la scriptures tacked onto armor from WH40k, to fill in the blanks. Or use art from it but then again I'm a huge slut for all that.

Positive alternatives would be finding random magic circles.

>>57953514
I've never played with or DM'd for things that do ability damage routinely. Would I need to put a clause where the effect can't be used on the same person within 24 hours even if successful? What part of the numbers should I change? This is kind of the primary ability for that flavor of the class so I wanted it to have impact and really stand out, but I don't have a dram of reference for it.

>>
>>57953584
Being able to deal ability damage routinely is INCREDIBLY dangerous anon. It can shut down, disable, or even outright kill a foe very easily. My gut says 1/5 class level (minimum 1) at the very most unless you have ways of constraining it. If you included limits on exactly which ability scores it could target or very few (like 3 or less at level 20), I'd be willing to push that to 1/3 class level (minimum 1).
>>
>>57953609
There isn't. Most of us don't give a shit about starfinder one way or another. There's just literally one or two autists who think that the game pissed in their cornflakes every morning because this general dared to change its name.
>>
>>57953711
I should clarify that it can only target 1 ability score as of now.

Maybe 1/3 class level min:1 (do you mean like, that's all and no other scaling or just that you'd change the class level part to that?) but can only target mental ability scores until level 15? Keeping in mind that really they would be hamstringed if they can't knock out someone's willpower and convince someone to wield them.
>>
>>57953711
Also with a small change of "This ability cannot be used on the same target within 24 hours" they wouldn't be able to stack the ability damage on one person, it would sort of be a one-and-done hit unless for some reason they stick around for longer than 24 hours.
>>
>>57953584
Ability damage is really tricky to balance, especially if you don't specify which ability it targets. 2+ points of intelligence damage is essentially SoL against anything with animal intelligence. 2 points of strength damage is not very impressive.
>>
>>57953809
>>57953833
>I should clarify that it can only target 1 ability score as of now.
That's definitely more reasonable. If you're looking to use it for dropping willpower, I'd say expressly set it to damage Wis and nothing else. With the addition of a only once per creature per 24 hours, I'd say that would make 1/3 class level reasonable.
>do you mean like, that's all and no other scaling or just that you'd change the class level part to that?
Just class level (so a flat 1 ability damage from 1st-5th, 2 ability damage from 6th-8th, and so on). NEVER give an ability mod to ability damage since ability mods can be cranked way beyond any kind of design parameters you have in mind.

>>57955310
now you're starting to sound like 2hu.
"Why doesn't every enemy try to end the fight immediately and fights with optimal tactics?!?"

why even bother with saves, just make a pounce-raging bloodrager/alchemist that beats average PC ac by 6 or more on their 6+ nat attacks and has access to free action greater invis eventually? Much more reliable than a save or die.

Not every enemy can or should fight optimally and gratuitous use of SoDs invalidates all character choices a PC might make other than a full-casters access to the magic item crafting or spells necessary to hard counter them. You've got a lot of progress to make as a gm

>>57955529
It's a full attack though

pounce denotes a charge. It's also a FRA not a full round attack. They are different and thus would not trigger off pounce.

>>57955545

>>57955568
if your players are satisfied with a campaign where they're hamstrung into only using very specific weapons and have to deal with constant SoDs I can't blame them for being masochists. It's just a thing to improve on, alter stat blocks, alter loot. Try to grow your players into more creative people that aren't punished for their creativity
>>
>>57955661
>Try to grow your players into more creative people that aren't punished for their creativity
Or, they can play the game correctly.

To be fair, it's not just specific weapons, since we play with feat tax, but weapon groups, and I allow free rebuilds on the go.
>>
>>57955719
there's no one true way to play the game but you can try being not an ass
>>57955721
treating a longsword as all heavy blades doesn't make the loot not a shitty longsword. Try throwing in other weapons from time to time, maybe even weird stuff like the battle ladder.
>>
>>57955755
I do, actually, that's why I allow free rebuilds to begin with. Sometimes I throw in a piece of loot that inspires a player to just rework their entire build to make it work.
>>
>>57955779
then maybe just try not to use save or dies. Throw in accurate but low HP mooks that have short duration soft crowd control like entangled or staggered for 1-2 rounds max instead of save or dieing people.

Because Pathfinder is basically just 3.5e and 3.5e doesn't work that way, not to mention even if it were changed to that then everything in Pathfinder would have to be rebalanced around that.

She's a centuries old ysanders for the goddess who made her, and is still convinced that she's not a demon eating human souls. But she's been unable to get a call back from her goddess for a few hundred years and has settled in to wait it out, taking care of the city that has her (now scorned) temple.

Her temple that just got blown up by rival cult and the priestess were saved by the party, so she just bailed them out of some shit.

Realistically, she's just going to be another source of dangerous information for the party to try and save the city I guess. Maybe jam in some exp for them.

What do you do if a player rapes one of the players in their sleep, after killing a bunch of low level NPCs. Then bails? Should you retcon anything or just roll with it?

He's Joseph Joestar levels of batshit insane.
We're playing an assassin game and while everyone is hardcore edgelord killers, I kill people with Looney Tunes shenangians. I once assasinated a hard target because he rarely uses anything twice and is constantly on the move. However I found out that he always uses the bathroom around 9:00 PM before going to bed. I had my snake familiar crawl up the sewers and mark both the toilet seat and the inner door handle of the bathroom with Nodes of Blasting. As soon as the mark dropped his pants, the shit literally hit the fan as he took 12d6 Psychic damage from being flung off the toilet and into the door handle, triggering both nodes. He failed both saves and didn't roll lower than a 3, giving him 58 damage and insta-killing him. He's pretty much pic related as he occasionally takes items from his targets and creates implements from them since I'm playing an Occultist.

How bullshit is this? Is there such a thing as "auto-self confirming" critical hits? Can a lvl 4 creature deal 195 hp damage? We don't use any 3pp beside Spheres of Power, which I introduced the group to and alot of them seemed to like it.
>>
>>57958498
Nope. Time to find a new GM because you have a shitter.
>>
>>57958498
Self-onfirming crits? Yeah, there's a few way to do those.

195 damage? Maybe with a 4x crit

Mostly, you got a shitty GM if that's a true story.

>>57958498

There aren't many tabletop groups at my college. Everyone's into Yugioh or Pokemon mostly. They were the only ones that were taking players.

I was honestly afraid of that. God damnit.

Start your own group then!

>>57958629
Don't take this the wrong way, but did you do something to offend the guy or something. Maybe my experience is fucked, but college groups tend to be relatively open and eager to take on new blood.

Honestly, the only thing I can think of is a few weeks back I told him and the others I had voted for Hillary cause I didn't like Trump. But other then that, no. I like to think of myself as a good player. I introduced them to SoP and they took to it like hogs to corn. And I didn't make my Hedge too OP, I tried to keep her within the same power level as the other players.

Should I confront him about it? I'm just numb right now. It's the first time I've been asked to leave a group, and he did so in such a roundabout way.
>>
>>57958807
It just sounds weird, you should ask him what's the deal. How did the others react?
>>
>>57958807
I mean, yeah. Ask your (now Ex) GM as to why that happened. Ask him flat-out, did you do something to piss him off? If he doesn't say anything, or if he says something stupid like "hurr you voted wrong", then he was never worth your time and you're better off with other people anyway.
>>
>>57958807
>a few weeks back I told him and the others I had voted for Hillary cause I didn't like Trump
My last group broke in half and then disbanded because the GM said he didn't vote for Hillary
He voted for Gary Johnson because he wasnt a fan of Trump either but that was enough to make the brit and the female of the group go screeching

It's your fault for bringing up politics in a fucking escapism hobby you fucknugget

>What does your character do while the rogue is stealthily scouting ahead?
My wizard has already magically scouted everything there is to scout before the rogue even begins.

That may be, but that's completely separate from being a bamboozler.

>>57957904
At least 2 of those games were because of asshole players flaking, not him. He is fucking slow as shit though, I swear he doesn't write or plan anything out beforehand, or maybe he's just an atrociously slow hunt and peck typer. A fight should not take THREE SESSIONS to complete.

The thing many rpg noobs / PF players just don’t get is that the GM can do whatever he wants. There doesn’t have to be a rule for it. That being said a dick move is still a dick move, but you can’t criticize him for doing something that’s not ”in the rules”. In a RPG the GM comes up with rules if needed.

They seemed surprised. I'm txting one of the other players and she said the game came to a halt after I left this morning. She also said it was the first time she's ever seen him kill a PC. Combats in his games are never deadly.

>>57958918
It wasn't like I was bragging! We had a few beers, talks got around to Make America Great Again and "all the good" Trump was doing. They were going on and on and I just told the truth. I guess I should have kept quiet.

I've tried txting him and he isn't responding. I'll talk to him in person. Hopefully have an update in a few hours.
>>
>>57959046
There's a difference between making new monster or re-fluffing something, whatever and making something that can decide to instantly eviscerate a character with absolutely zero means of defending against it or reversing the effect. And just because a GM can change a rule doesn't necessarily mean that change is good or beyond criticism.

>>57952369
My DM once gave me a sword that erases demons from existence on crits, it was meant to be used to destroy this demon-god BBEG. Then, he let me put Keen on it despite already having Improved Critical. I even tried to explain to him that they normally would not stack, but he didn't care. Then, when the time came to fight the BBEG, I kept rolling inspiration (something the DM was real loose with doling out) until I rolled something within the incredibly huge crit range.

Campaign would've ended there had we not all reiterated how stupid powerful the sword was. Granted after retconning what happened he didn't bother letting the sword do anything special at all. It was seriously just a longsword at that point. But whatever, our party's Magus ended up betraying us for the BBEG and nearly killed us all anyhow.

Assuming this isn't b8, I thought all the /pol//trumpfags moved on to 5e given paizo's political reputation.

Sure, you can criticize the rulings but not the fact rulings are being made. Just a little reminder because I see lots of players that go apeshit when a GM ignores a rule or uses a modification or whatever.
