Re: How to handle skill points from an item #pathfinder


Just my two cents… Agreed that James Jacobs perhaps doesn’t officially have final say on rules questions. But he is authoritative and at a level way up in orbit above anyone in the PCGen team as to what is or is not Pathfinder. In other words, James’ comment should be considered valid with respect to what PCGen *should* do unless and until overruled by someone higher up in Paizo.

James Jacobs is creative director, he's responsible for the direction of the

story of Golarion, not for Rules. No, James does not have the final say.

Permanent Bonuses: Ability bonuses with a duration greater than 1 day actually increase the relevant ability score after 24 hours. Modify all skills and statistics as appropriate. This might cause you to gain skill points, hit points, and other bonuses. These bonuses should be noted separately in case they are removed

According to this site then I would get more skill points. It has a quote from James Jacobs about this but I am not clear who he is and does he have the final say so
