comment Is heat metal too powerful?
@Erik - Since this is tagged 5e, I should point out that Fire Resistance 10 isn't a thing anymore. Resistance just reduces damage by 1/2. Also the spell is Protection from Energy now.

comment Are Paladin Tenets Subjective?
FWIW: On page 96-97 of the DMG is the Paladin: Oathbreaker, which is this edition's form of an Antipaladin (it's even in the index as such).

comment Is the first encounter of the starter set really “deadly”?
I reread this section in the DMG, and I think it's important to note that "Deadly" is "This encounter has the potential to be deadly to one or more PCs". This encounter totally qualifies. You can easily drop someone in the surprise round, and a couple of bad death saving throws later, bam.

For what it's worth, I did drop a PC in the first round of that encounter.

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 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.

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.
