comment How do I make a gunslinger with a decent damage progression?
See the thing is there are paper cartridges too: paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateCombat/combat/firearms.html. I suppose you could replicate those. The main problem with just the bullets is you're pulling the bullets from a pouch, and the powder from a different container. But yeah, the cartridges could work.

comment How do I make a gunslinger with a decent damage progression?
Now some critiques: Abundant Ammunition doesn't cover the cost of black powder, just the bullets. The powder is by far the more expensive of the components required to use guns. Fabricate Bullets has the same problem. I also think your calculations on the wonderous item creation cost are a bit off, you're missing the x2 cost for the spell being minutes per level. So it'd be 4,000 GP, not 2,000.

No such thing as a late entry here! Funny that you should mention speed loaders, as there's a spell for that: paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateCombat/spells/…

comment Do you HAVE to have Thieves tools in order to pick a lock?
A pedantic (and computer-like) reading of "a creature proficient with thieves’ tools can pick this lock with a successful DC 15 Dexterity check." doesn't actually exclude someone who isn't proficient from making the check. It just states that those who are can. But anyhow, the whole system mechanic seems to lean towards "go ahead and try it if you're not proficient, you might just succeed."

comment Creating an easily-defeatable dragon
I read this as "easily deflatable dragon". I pictured a balloon dragon terrorizing the countryside, capturing PCs, etc.

comment Taking out-of-career specialisations
Just a quick additional point, Force Sensitive Exile (and the one from AoR, forget the name) is treated as a "Career Specialization" for everyone in terms of XP expenditure.

comment Does the appearance of a vampire remain the same forever?
Is there anything that covers the issue of getting your hair cut off and having it regrow every night? (Interview with the Vampire style)?

comment How can I tailor an encounter so that a low level, mostly mundane party can defeat a wasp swarm?
@MrLemon - You can't target a single creature in a swarm, and as such you'd have to target the square with the splash weapon. Thus, the swarm would take splash damage. Which is 1 point of fire damage. So, 1 + .5 = 1.5, round down = 1. That's RAW. RAI you very well may be right, and I'd probably rule it that way.

comment Would an Inquisitor's warband be dispatched to fight the taint of Xenos?
Slight quibble: typically Inquisitors do belong to a given Ordo, but they're free to switch Ordos if they see fit to do so (with the appropriate social repercussions). But being in a given Ordo doesn't preclude an Inquisitor to pursue whatever threat they want to.

comment Would an Inquisitor's warband be dispatched to fight the taint of Xenos?
@Capt.Pantsless - Don't forget that the Inquisition is far-reaching, but limited in number. It wouldn't be too unusual for an Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor to pursue a Daemonic threat if no-one else is nearby, or otherwise indisposed. Plus, Cults (Ordo Hereticus's primary concern) can worship Daemons or Xenos or whatever, so that gives them a lot of overlap.

comment I'm a quarter Draconian, a quarter Dragonborn and half Half-Dragon?
"In 5e, these changed again: apparently in the 5th-edition world, any dragon wishing to bear true dragon children needs the explicit (written?) permission of Bahamut or Tiamat." - What's the source on that? I'm most interested to read that fluff.

comment Can wizards really cast spells in armor?
@Dyndrilliac - He could still wear the armor, his speed would just be reduced by 10 ft. That's the only effect of the minimum strength.

comment Can wizards really cast spells in armor?
Most memorable 5e experience for me yet was the Mountain Dwarf wizard (randomly rolled) running around in Medium Armor pretending to be a fighter.

comment Dark Heresy 2nd edition vs. 1st edition
That makes sense, each game they release they tweak the rules a bit. Which is super annoying when you try to mix the games together...

comment How do I use a person as a shield?
I should mention that I compelled the PC to get lured out into the woods. Even so, trying to get out of it and gaining 4 FATE points in the process was a little cheese-weasely, I thought.

comment How do I use a person as a shield?
@doppelgreener We didn't either until we looked it up. It's actually caused a bit of an imbalance in our game, due especially to the rogue's aim stunt.

comment How do I use a person as a shield?
@doppelgreener - Yes. You can. The last sentence of that paragraph: "You can also stack multiple free invocations together." There is no limitation on that. And later in the book under teamwork, they do this very thing.

@SevenSidedDie Success with style for the Aim action for 2 free invokes, + a stunt which gives an extra free invoke on aim actions. You can stack free invokes multiple times in Fate Core: fate-srd.com/fate-core/…. 4th paragraph in that section.
