The traditional answer to this is, "Write it down and pass a note." In the 21st century, I might change that to, "Send a text." Of course, nothing prevents your players from passing the note around amongst themselves, or reading it aloud. In some circumstances, "Take one player aside and talk to him or her." However, I think you might be asking two or ...

Come up with that yourself, or consult your group for assistance in working out what it should mean. You and your party are (in-game or at the table) coming across something new and exciting in the world: an individual who transcends alignment. It's in your power to determine where you go from here. There's no precedent for this in Pathfinder that I'm aware ...

Yes. Regular monks weren't given proficiency with monk weapons. That FAQ applies to them. It isn't about the Unchained monks. As you note, it's old, and Unchained monks didn't even exist at that point. Unchained monks are given a weapon proficiency with any monk weapon, hence the bit you bolded.

Yes From Special Abilities, Energy Resistance: Each resistance ability is defined by what energy type it resists and how many points of damage are resisted. It doesn't matter whether the damage has a mundane or magical source. While the rules for cold weather do not specify a damage type, common sense dictates that it would be cold damage. Nonlethal ...

A pretty good percentage of monsters have DR. I have Hero Lab with all the various monster and NPC books loaded. When I use its Encounter Builder, I have the choice of 4169 monsters and pre-built NPCs. When I search for DR, I get 1555 of them that have DR. So "37%" is the short answer. It's not necessarily biased towards higher CRs - in fact, there's a ...

Be careful not to confuse the two entities shamans work with: one is a spirit, the other is a living animal representing that spirit in the physical world. First, no, the spirit animal is not an animal companion. It is a living creature that mostly works like a wizard's familiar: [The Spirit Animal] ability uses the same rules as the wizard's arcane ...

Officially, interrupting the 1-hour of meditation or study results in no spells prepared... Each of the classes you mention has no provision for partial preparation of spells. "Each cleric must choose a time when she must spend 1 hour each day in quiet contemplation or supplication to regain her daily allotment of spells." "A druid must spend 1 hour each ...

Utilize Advanced Creatures. If your PC's are absolutely rolling through the opposition, its clear that the opposition needs a buff to get them on the same level of challenge, this is probably your best bet. This will have them likely digging into the many resources like Hero points that you've provided and up the Ante on any Encounter. At first I would use ...

It is an additional increase, over and above the possible increase from Mythic The Mythic effect is not “increasing” the die type, it is “setting” the die type, equal to the type of her surge die. Thus, the following sentence cannot be read as limiting the “increase,” because up to that point there hasn’t been an increase to limit. Thus, though the bolded ...

It sounds like you have a problem with players metagaming (acting on information the player has, but his character doesn't), and you're fixing that by having the players explicitly inform each other. This usually works fine as long as players don't have to do it too often – but if you're requiring them to relay the info to the group every time they ...

People of the Stars and Distant Worlds come immediately to mind- the former focuses more on noteworthy alien races in the Pathfinder universe, including many playable ones, while the latter concerns itself more with the planets themselves than what lives on them.

It is exactly proportional I draw this from the time-costs of deliberately preparing less than a full load. This assumes a minimum of 15 hours of preparation plus eight hours of uninterrupted rest. If the eight hours of rest is interrupted, they only have their spells from the previous day. From Preparing Wizard Spells: After resting, a wizard must ...

As noted in its description it functions as shield other, giving it a duration of 1 hour/level (Dismissible).

PFSRD: By communing with the incredible powers of her spirit, the shaman forges a cherished bond with one specific servant of that spirit—known as a spirit animal. A spirit animal is a creature chosen by a shaman to serve as a conduit, allowing her to more fully access the magic of her spirit on a daily basis. The shaman's spirit animal also grants her ...

Yes, spells which are already prepared beforehand are untouched by the preparation process, both arcane: Until he prepares spells from his spellbook, the only spells a wizard has available to cast are the ones that he already had prepared from the previous day and has not yet used. […] If a wizard already has spells prepared (from the previous day) that ...

Summons may be healed using normal curative spells (unless you are using some weird summoning variant that disallows that, but Summon Monster/SNA/etc. are all healable) assuming their type is usually subject to magical healing. (Summoned undead, constructs, etc. all heal or not as usual.) Eidolons don't heal naturally but can be cured with normal healing ...

Resistance applies only to effects that deal the kind of damage to which the resistance applies... The extraordinary ability resistance says A creature with this special quality ignores some damage of the indicated type each time it takes damage of that kind (commonly acid, cold, electricity, or fire). The entry indicates the amount and type of damage ...

That FAQ predates Unchained. Presumably, this is exactly the reason they decided to rewrite the monk weapon proficiencies (prior to Unchained, monks did not say they were proficient with all monk weapons), so that you could do exactly what your player would like to do. Certainly, the monk can be safely allowed to use such weapons.

Pathfinder Second Darkness book 2: Children of the Void Starting on page 48 there is various material about the other planets in the solar system.

You make the check v.s. every creature with SR, but you might (check with DM) only roll once. If you beat an individual creature, that creature is affected. If you don't, only that single creature is protected against the effects of the spell. Spell resistance applies if the resistant creature is within the spell's area. It protects the resistant ...

Yes, you can charge while using alternate movement modes as long as the other requirements for a charge are met.

Sell the crossbow... probably I don't know the rules for the belt-fed fully automatic crossbow your DM homebrewed, but a level 8 character who takes a standard action to make an attack roll and, if successful, deals 3d10 points of piercing damage isn't living up to his potential, mystic theurge or not. Any resources invested in making that crossbow better ...

In short, Yes... A crossbow couldn't get a benefit from a strength mod, so it's an ideal ranged option for your stats. In longer battles or with many battles in a day, your spell slots are a limited resource, doubly so if you're the primary healer, and your cleric spells will be burned to patch people up and keep the party going longer. When a fight ...

Can an Alchemist copy formulae off of a divine scroll? Yes, an Alchemist can copy a formula from a divine scroll if it appears on their formula list. An Alchemist can copy spells into a formula book just like a Wizard copies spells into their spellbook. Therefore, if a Wizard can copy a divine scroll, an Alchemist would be able to as well. Because divine ...

I irregularly play or DM D&D and have played Pathfinder only a few times. So I will try to answer the question as best I can. First off your main concern seems to be how to defeat casters as a non-caster class. While the best method of defeating non-casters is to improve yourself the best way to compete with casters is to focus less on yourself and more ...
