Pathfinder Arcanist School Understanding

Trying to recreate the Pathfinder Society Arcanist pre-gen.  I choose the School Understanding exploit but I am unable to choose the Foresight subschool of Divination.  I can't find any place to make the selection.  Only the Core arcane schools are available.

Created a Hunter 6 Ranger 2 with Magical Knack and one spell, Barkskin.  caster level is 6.


Re: Rapid Reload feat not working for non-Bolt Ace Gunslinger archetypes

Andrew Maitland
 

Hi Christian,

The problem is Paizo tacking on things after the fact.

Original Feat text: Choose a type of crossbow (hand, light, or heavy). You can reload such weapons quickly.

Notice no mention of muskets, firearms, or variant crossbows. They started tacking on new choices after the fact, which means the team has to add the new items to the list. (Spoiler alert, a volunteer fixed one or more such variants regarding muskets which will be appearing in RC 5).

The team codes what the publisher publishes, and you need to be sharp-eyed and intimately understand how every class feature, feat, trait, etc. works to make changes after the fact. Since the Core Rulebook came out in 2008 the volunteers who worked on that original set have since moved on and are no longer active in the project. You have a new crop of hardy monkey volunteers adding several new supplements at a breakneck pace. Chances are they don't catch nuisances like old feats that need to be re-skinned. Please be patient, open a report on what doesn't work, and chances are we'll fix it. That's what we do.

But please, be kind. Remember, everyone is contributing to the project because they love gaming and sharing their time productively. They don't like people complaining at them for failing to make something perfect the first go of it. D&D d20 systems are complicated creations, and publishers are changing things constantly. We adapt and overcome.

Cheers,

Andrew Maitland

I don't know if anyone has noticed this yet, but I can't make any selections for non-crossbow weapons when I select the Rapid Reload feat for gunslinger archetypes. I was able to select Rapid Reload when I selected the Bolt Ace archetype, but the only crossbows I could select were hand crossbows, light crossbows and heavy crossbows. What happens if a player wants to select something like a repeating crossbow or a minotaur crossbow?

With pistoleros, the result was the same: I was only able to select hand crossbows, light crossbows and heavy crossbows, all of which are, obviously, completely useless for pistoleros.

Furthermore, when I selected the Musket Master archetype and then selected Rapid Reload, the list of guns to specify came up completely blank. Not even the aforementioned crossbows came up in the list. So how can I select Rapid Reload (Musket) from a blank list?

Seriously, what gives?

Although the plus 2 would bring total caster level of hunter above 8 so that may actually be the issue, maybe try with hunter 6 and ranger 2 and see if the issue is still there.

Sorry, never mind didn't notice the total level was 8. Rang1 + Hunter 7 = 8.


Re: Trouble with Magical Knack #pathfinder

Benefit: Pick a class when you gain this trait—your caster level in that class gains a +2 trait bonus as long as this bonus doesn’t raise your caster level above your current Hit Dice.

I have a 7th level Pathfinder Hunter with one level of Ranger.  I added the Magical Knack trait (designating Hunter as class) to boost my caster level to 8.  However, it didn't work.  I build a Hunter 8/Ranger 1 from scratch with Magical Knack.  Same thing.

Thanks, I had indeed missed a detail. I had thought the Dream Scarred Press info could be added. Finally realized it is only available under Pathfinder. 
Again, thanks.

Andrew of Gwen can chime in here, but it looks like there is a conflict with your work directory.

Specifically this
C:/Users/fitzs/Documents/PcGen/PcGen%20Workspace/homebrew/conversion_support/conversion_support.pcc

Do you have your homebrew, custom or vender location set to point at that location and also copied it into the Homebrew data folder?

Errors loading Pathfinder in everything after 6.06.01

Terrence FitzSimons
 

I'm coming back to 'after a absence of about 6 years. Started with 6.06.01 and did
not have a problem with my Pathfinder characters.

Last week decided to update to 6.07.06 and have trouble getting Pathfinder to load,
started downloading backward; 6.07.01, 6.07.03, 6.07.04, 6.07.05 all have the same
problem.

Its been too long for me to figure this out, can someone tell me where to look to fix
this? 6.06.01 works, these don't and I would like to know how I mussed it up.

Re: Adding Psionics to RC4

Hi,

RSRD (Revised System Resource Document) Complete has all the rules that are legal for the WotC 3.5 game system.

Or are you talking about something else?

Re: rare cantrips (aka ultimate cantrips)

Andrew Maitland
 

Well, they aren't in any book, which means they'd be entered as a web supplement. Secondly, Paul would need to verify we can include those.

The team isn't in the habit of focusing on web blogs for source material. People request books and books is what we deliver.

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

Andrew
 

It does, although if you're just adding TL, why not use the headband?

This is the solution if you want bespoke allocation of skills on a per level basis that doesn't
let you exceed your level in skill points in a given skill and goes away if you take off the item.

Here is one I prepared earlier:

Totally not broken Int booster<tab>KEY:My Int boosting item
<tab>BONUS:STAT|INT|2|TYPE=Inherent
<tab>BONUS:SKILLRANK|Perception|floor(TL+3/4)|TYPE=GMs pet‡
<tab>BONUS:SKILLRANK|Stealth|floor(TL+1/2)|TYPE=GMs pet
<tab>BONUS:SKILLRANK|Knowledge (dungeoneering)|TL|TYPE=GMs pet


Level    Perception   Stealth   Knowledge (dungeoneering)
1        1            1         1
2        1            1         2
3        1            2         3
4        1            2         4
5        2            3         5
6        2            3         6

I do not believe there is a way to do this in the GUI, you will have to edit a text file.

My 2c, when Paizo makes James the official FAQ writer I'll accept his forum posts
as gospel, 'til then they're just some guy's* opinion.

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

lengrand.aurelien@...
 

Adding my two cents as well, so far many FAQ and Rules questions have been answered by James Jacobs, while the official FAQ are answered by someone else, they merely repeat in a more formal manner what J.J. already answered in a forum post.

He's the only one actively answering on the forums as far as I know, and I haven't seen (take this with a grain of salt, I'm far from reading every post from J.J.) him corrected by someone else from the Rules team at Paizo, so far his words are taken as ruling by the community.

Besides, what he said is basically written in the SDR under the Ability Score rules. Unless there's an exception like the Headband of Vast Intelligence.
But OP said he doesn't wear a HoV but a house-ruled magic item giving a +2 to his Int score. This means it would retroactively give him skill points he could allocate as he wants to.

Now his question was if there's any way in PCGen to link an item to what has been retroactively given by this item (in this case, skill points are the only thing that needs tracking beside the usual modifiers from the +2 to Int). Paul Grosse answered that for now, there's no such way to track it beside some work-around (tracking it in the description tab of the item, etc). This could become a nice suggestion, not a high priority one but eventually, it would be nice to be able to track this kind of thing.

PS: two of you may receive this for the second time, sorry about it, for some reason my e-mail wasn't registered anymore.

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.

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
