comment What product(s) do I need to start with the Pathfinder Campaign setting?
Ok, I figured that's what you meant, but always good to clarify.

Just to clarify, you're looking for the Golarian-specific products, not Pathfinder as a system, correct?

comment Making magic “magical”
@GMJoe - Yeah, there's records of it going all the way back to at least 1984, per wikipedia.

comment What made clerics so strong in D&D 3.5?
@Luaan - You're still missing the point. It's not about sheer deadliness, it's about utility. The cleric can go specifically ask their deity "What should we do now?". The cleric can go "Everyone is dying, we need a miracle to save us." Even at lower levels, the cleric can go "Lets walk over this pit", "Lets see whether this is a good idea", or even just "No one will hear us sneak in" and "I always have a light handy". None of those are likely to violate their deity's strictures, regardless of what deity they serve. Other Tier 1 classes have similar levels of utility, without the god.

comment Writing a character-oriented adventure for characters you don't know
As a system-specific example which demonstrates Flagging and additional requirements: Pathfinder's adventure paths generally require each PC to take a AP specific trait, which then ties in to the content of the AP. In Skull & Shackles, it explains how you end up on the pirate ship. In Wrath of the Righteous, it sets up your mythic powers. And so on.

comment Can I resume levelling up as a paladin after taking a few levels as an Oracle?
Just for cross reference purposes: Monk has also had that restriction removed, but the "Unable to level while non-LG" (or non-lawful for monks) is still in effect.

comment How far can characters see?
Personally, I interpret that table as the ability to actually notice something about the person... So it's more like "Can you see his facial features from the other side of a football field?" than "Can you see him at all?" But that's just my interpretation, not RAW.

comment Is there a Wild Hunt in Pathfinder?
That being said, I think that the answer itself is right - I don't know of anything like the Wild Hunt in the Golarian setting.

All of the Pathfinder rules are Open Gaming content, but the world setting is not. The PFSRD is also only the unofficial index of the non-setting specific information, and also includes lots of third party stuff.

comment How can I create a first level teenaged rogue?
(To be fair, the real world does behave that way. You're suddenly much more mature, and thus able to handle your own affairs, on your 18th birthday than you are the day before it.)

Birthdays are magic! You turn 16 and suddenly get smarter!

comment Does the aid another “special attack” become automatic at mid level?
I once ran a module which had an encounter with 10th level PCs against an army of 100 2nd level orcs. The orcs all did aid another on each other so that one of them could hit. The PCs slaughtered them, though.

@PaulMarshall - You're entirely right, but attack bonuses scale faster than AC does. So while +2 provides a +10% chance to hit regardless of level, going from 70% to 80% feels much less useful than going from 15% to 25%.

comment How can you use isometric maps (or other tricks for addressing 3 dimensions) for miniatures?
Oooh, cool. Now I know what's being asked about. Thanks for adding a link (and to @SevenSidedDie for fixing the terminology).

Can you link an image of what you mean by a orthographic map here? I think I know what you mean, but I'm really not positive.

comment Is it possible to work a Spiked Chain as a collar?
For what it's worth, the Pathfinder design team has errataed the weapon cord to be a move action, not a swift.

comment Help me build a dagger focused character
Monks aren't automatically proficient with the lungchuan tamo, although they can flurry with them. This would be a great use for the Weapon Adept archetype, too. +1 for an alternative option.

I really like this idea. Wish I could upvote it more than once.

comment What is the purpose of Finesse Rogue when core rules state a rogue can take any feat naturally?
@PaulHutton - It's to allow certain ones to block the other - you can't take a ninja trick with the same name as a rogue talent, and vice versa, so you're stuck with the version you "naturally" get. Also, a rogue can only take one advanced ninja trick, I think.
