I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment Any gods of balance in the 3.5 default setting pantheon?
Any specific campaign setting (FR, GH, Eberron)? Or "core only?" Or "anything, it's only for inspiration?"

I assume you mean ride your own TFD. You should be able to ride someone else's just fine!

comment Enhancement Bonus = Crit Threat Improvment?
My print version says "natural." Regardless, the whole frame of the question is wrong.

comment Enhancement Bonus = Crit Threat Improvment?
No - natural 18+ was a threat in PO:C&T.

Sorry man, again, "any adventure in or near a city" generates a huge list. Read the link provided above and also meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/1475/…; jump into chat and have people help you scope this down if needed.

@Aramis actually, I've just pulled out my old Combat & Tactics and this isn't in there at all. Their crit system is "natural 18 or more, hit by 5 or more." on p.101 there's an example of this with a magical longsword adding to the THAC0 but not increasing the crit range. (It does add to initiative though, p.18!) Closing this question again for not making sense.

comment Does Come and Get me allow for more than one opportunity attack?
@RuleofThree another way of stating that is "it's a great rage power addition to build on a Combat Reflexes build." The design intent of every little bit isn't "I should be able to take that with any character!"...

comment What is expected from NPC profiles that are written for-profit?
I agree, this is an "unhappy medium." Too much detail for "I need an interesting guy to plug in here," too little for "A character driven plot arc."

@aramis, being correct is not an excuse for being rude. Semi correct at least, the question's still pretty unclear on both source and target versions for the compare.

OK, please consider how to rework this question to allow people to scope their answers. I'll reopen once it's edited.

Yeah, I'm not sure what you want if "vaguely similar" isn't enough for such an unclear set of requirements.

I'm probably going to close this question unless it gets a lot more specific. As it stands, I'm not sure what you expect to get in terms of answers other than "every single low level Pathfinder adventure, or heck even non-Pathfinder ones, with maybe a city mentioned in them, or maybe not." (As proven by that's what you're getting in answers.) See our rules for system-rec questions (you're asking for adventures not systems, but it's still a shopping question). meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/1070/…
