Daily Punch 9-28-12

More Pathfinder love this time for items-

User Curse:+1 bonus (minor necromancy), when created, choose a character; that character is the only character who can use this item at is full bonus due to magic.  Any other character who attempts to use this item is affected as if by a cursed item (choose an equivalent cursed item).  To detect this property, raise the DC to detect via Spellcraft by +10.  If the Spellcraft fails, the item’s powers are detected as additional minor evocation instead of necromancy.

Daily Punch 9-27-12

It’s time for a  double feature!  DnD 4e and Pathfinder together!

Pathfinder First

Hostile Negotiations:Feat-You may use an intimidate check in place of a diplomacy check.  Your DM may judge that you can not repeatedly use this feat several times in one conversation.  If you fail a diplomacy check with an intimidate check, the result is as if you had failed an intimidate check.

Now time for DnD 4e

Hostile Negotiations

Skill Power (Intimidate) -Level 2


Effect:You may substitute an intimidate check for a diplomacy check.  If you fail the check, the results are as if you failed an intimidate check.

Monday Combo 9-24-12

I’ve been watching some players and I think its time for some Pathfinder Feats

Agile Charge; Feat, Combat:  you may charge over difficult terrain as long as you have the movement for the charge.

Broken Charge; Feat, Combat; requires Agile Charge and +4BAB:  You may charge at a distance equal to your move after a normal move as a standard action.  You take the normal penalties to this charge.

Quick Charge; Feat; Combat; requires Broken Charge and +8 BAB:  You may charge at a distance of only 5 ft from an enemy.  You only receive a +1 to the attack but still take the normal penalty to defense.

Broken or should have been built into the system?  Thoughts?

Daily Punch 9-20-12

I’ve been tooling around with ideas in my head about what to call these things, and from now on, daily posts are called the “The Daily Punch” and my Monday dumps will be called “The Weekly Combo”.  I might start doing some small things throughout the week, and I’ve got some ideas about that.

So for the first Punch, let’s look at the Drow and what I saw last night.  How about using feats in 4e to replace some powers with others, a la channel divinity?

Clinging Darkness-Feat-Required a arcane or divine power source-In stead of your cloud of darkness, you may instead use the Clinging Darkness power

Clinging Darkness

Darkness clings to your enemy and prevents them from seeing you while allowing you and your allies to move in for the kill.

Encounter;  Arcane or Divine; implement

Minor Action

Target: One creature in burst 1

Highest ability vs. REF

Hit: target is blinded (save ends)

Ok gang, thoughts?

Daily Post 9-19-12

Its time for another post and today has to deal with hybrids….

Cross training-Feat:  Select one power you know; that power becomes a power for another class as well as the class it was originally part of, but does not change the power source of the power.  This feat may be taken multiple times.

There are some great combos out there that are limited by the class a power comes from.  Thoughts?
