  2. With a reserved sigh, the praetor relents. “As the Pathfinders are responsible for getting us into this mess, I see it fitting that we give them the chance to remedy the situation. I’m putting my faith in you, and the lives of the people in Fort Bandu. I pray that you don’t betray that trust, for the consequences could be quite dire for all who call this home.” “Most unfortunate,” Valacosti observes with disappointment that gives way to menacing resolve. “I believe you are making a grave mistake by placing any faith in these glorified tomb robbers, praetor. Once they fail, remember that the Aspis Consortium has extended a generous offer of aid in this troubling time. One can only hope that this Pathfinder experiment does not exacerbate the situation further and necessitate our renegotiating the terms.” Valacosti dismisses himself. Praetor Sylien then provides you with the information of Sharrowsmith’s last known location at a Gold Crown mining operation approximately 20 miles away as well as a rough estimate of his travel route. Please provide Survival checks if you wish.

  3. Khan Male, Half-orc Class: Ranger | Level: 1 Str: 14 | Dex: 16 | Con: 14 | Int: 12 | Wis: 13 | Cha: 10 HP: 12/12 | Speed: 30 | Init: +3 AC: 15 | Touch: 13 | Flat-footed: 12 CMD: 16 | FCMD: 13 Fort: 4 | Ref: 5 | Will: 1 Weapons Longbow: +4Dexterity Modifier: +3 Base Attack Bonus: +1 (1d8, x3) [100 ft range] Scimitar (cold-iron): +3Strength Modifier: +2 Base Attack Bonus: +1 (1d6+2, 18-20/x2) Dagger: +3Strength Modifier: +2 Base Attack Bonus: +1 (melee)/+4Dexterity Modifier: +3 Base Attack Bonus: +1 (missile) (1d4+2, 19-20/x2) [10 ft range] Situational Modifiers Favored EnemyCLASS (RANGER) FEATURE At 1st level, a ranger selects a creature type from the ranger favored enemies table. He gains a +2 bonus on Bluff, Knowledge, Perception, Sense Motive, and Survival checks against creatures of his selected type. Likewise, he gets a +2 bonus on weapon attack and damage rolls against them. A ranger may make Knowledge skill checks untrained when attempting to identify these creatures. At 5th level and every five levels thereafter (10th, 15th, and 20th level), the ranger may select an additional favored enemy. In addition, at each such interval, the bonus against any one favored enemy (including the one just selected, if so desired) increases by +2. If the ranger chooses humanoids or outsiders as a favored enemy, he must also choose an associated subtype, as indicated on the table below. (Note that there are other types of humanoid to choose from—those called out specifically on the table below are merely the most common.) If a specific creature falls into more than one category of favored enemy, the ranger’s bonuses do not stack; he simply uses whichever bonus is higher. 1st: Monstrous Humanoids (+2) | Freedom FighterFACTION Your family has long waged war against tyranny, and you learned a great deal about guerilla warfare in your youth. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Stealth checks and a +1 trait bonus on attack rolls during surprise rounds. | Orc BloodRACIAL TRAIT Half-orcs count as both humans and orcs for any effect related to race. | Orc FerocityRACIAL TRAIT Once per day, when a half-orc is brought below 0 hit points but not killed, he can fight on for 1 more round as if disabled. At the end of his next turn, unless brought to above 0 hit points, he immediately falls unconscious and begins dying. | Point-Blank ShotFEAT You are especially accurate when making ranged attacks against close targets. Benefit: You get a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls with ranged weapons at ranges of up to 30 feet. | TrackCLASS (RANGER) FEATURE A ranger adds half his level (minimum 1) to Survival skill checks made to follow tracks. Bonus Types The important aspect of bonus types is that two bonuses of the same type don’t generally stack. With the exception of dodge bonuses, most circumstance bonuses, and racial bonuses, only the better bonus of a given type works. Bonuses without a type always stack, unless they are from the same source. Alchemical:An alchemical bonus is granted by the use of a non-magical, alchemical substance such as antitoxin. --- | Armor:An armor bonus applies to armor class and is granted by armor or by a spell or magical effect that mimics armor. Armor bonuses stack with all other bonuses to armor class (even with natural armor bonuses) except other armor bonuses. An armor bonus doesn’t apply against touch attacks, except for armor bonuses granted by force effects (such as the mage armor spell) which apply against incorporeal touch attacks, such as that of a shadow. +2Leather Armor | BAB:This number is a modifier added to your attack rolls. A higher number means you’re better at combat. +1 | Circumstance:A circumstance bonus (or penalty) arises from specific conditional factors impacting the success of the task at hand. Circumstance bonuses stack with all other bonuses, including other circumstance bonuses, unless they arise from essentially the same source. --- | Competence:A competence bonus (or penalty) affects a character’s performance of a particular task, as in the case of the bardic ability to inspire competence. Multiple competence bonuses don’t stack; only the highest bonus applies. --- Deflection:A deflection bonus affects armor class and is granted by a spell or magic effect that makes attacks veer off harmlessly. Deflection bonuses stack with all other bonuses to AC except other deflection bonuses. A deflection bonus applies against touch attacks. --- | Dodge:A dodge bonus improves armor class (and sometimes Reflex saves) resulting from physical skill at avoiding blows and other ill effects. Dodge bonuses are never 1 usually not granted by spells or magic items. Any situation or effect (except wearing armor) that negates a character’s Dexterity bonus also negates any dodge bonuses the character may have. Dodge bonuses stack with all other bonuses to AC, even other dodge bonuses. Dodge bonuses apply against touch attacks. --- | Enhancement:An enhancement bonus represents an increase in the sturdiness and/or effectiveness of armor or natural armor, or the effectiveness of a weapon, or a general bonus to an ability score. Multiple enhancement bonuses on the same object (in the case of armor and weapons), creature (in the case of natural armor), or ability score do not stack. Only the highest enhancement bonus applies. Since enhancement bonuses to armor or natural armor effectively increase the armor or natural armor’s bonus to AC, they don’t apply against touch attacks. --- | Inherent:Content... --- | Insight:An insight bonus improves performance of a given activity by granting the character an almost precognitive knowledge of what might occur. Multiple insight bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest insight bonus applies. --- Luck:A luck bonus represents good (or bad) fortune. Multiple luck bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest luck bonus applies. --- | Morale:A morale bonus represents the effects of greater hope, courage, and determination (or hopelessness, cowardice, and despair in the case of a morale penalty). Multiple morale bonuses on the same character do not stack. Only the highest morale bonus applies. Non-intelligent creatures (creatures with an Intelligence of 0 or no Intelligence at all) cannot benefit from morale bonuses. --- | Natural Armor:A natural armor bonus improves armor class resulting from a creature’s naturally tough hide. Natural armor bonuses stack with all other bonuses to armor class (even with armor bonuses) except other natural armor bonuses. Some magical effects (such as the barkskin spell) grant an enhancement bonus to the creature’s existing natural armor bonus, which has the effect of increasing the natural armor’s overall bonus to armor class. A natural armor bonus doesn’t apply against touch attacks. --- | Profane:A profane bonus (or penalty) stems from the power of evil. Multiple profane bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest profane bonus applies. --- | Racial:A racial bonus comes from the culture a particular creature was brought up in or because of innate characteristics of that type of creature. If a creature’s race changes (for instance, if it dies and is reincarnated), it loses all racial bonuses it had in its previous form. VariousSee Situational Modifiers Resistance:A resistance bonus affects saving throws, providing extra protection against harm. Multiple resistance bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest resistance bonus applies. --- | Sacred:A sacred bonus (or penalty) stems from the power of good. Multiple sacred bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest sacred bonus applies. --- | Shield:A shield bonus improves armor class and is granted by a shield or by a spell or magic effect that mimics a shield. Shield bonuses stack with all other bonuses to AC except other shield bonuses. A magic shield typically grants an enhancement bonus to the shield’s shield bonus, which has the effect of increasing the shield’s overall bonus to AC. A shield bonus granted by a spell or magic item typically takes the form of an invisible, tangible field of force that protects the recipient. A shield bonus doesn’t apply against touch attacks. --- | Size:A size bonus or penalty is derived from a creature’s size category. Size modifiers of different kinds apply to armor class, attack rolls, Stealth checks, combat maneuver checks, and various other checks. --- | Trait:A trait bonus is a bonus granted via a character trait. Character traits are an optional additional character defining feature like feats but less powerful (typically about half as strong as a feat.) As with other named bonuses, trait bonuses do not “stack” with other trait bonuses. VariousSee Situational Modifiers Condition(s): None Post Khan was feeling pretty useless in this situation. He felt way more comfortable out in the wilderness amongst nature, but he needed to do something. The half-orc pulled his hood back and stepped forward. Gently, he placed a supporting hand upon Vesal's shoulder and quietly said, "What she said is true." OOC & Mechanics Aid Another Diplomacy Check Features | Prepared Spells Wild Empathy:A ranger can improve the initial attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check to improve the attitude of a person (see Using Skills). The ranger rolls 1d20 and adds his ranger level and his Charisma bonus to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use wild empathy, the ranger and the animal must be within 30 feet of one another under normal visibility conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. The ranger can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but he takes a –4 penalty on the check.

  5. "We have come to retrieve a man that was running amok. We have already shown our ability to navigate these lands. We have demonstrated our ability to responded appropriate to challenges. We can be subtle when needed and we can be dangerous when violence is required." Vesal summarizes. Then she adds "Let the us take him away.

  6. You may have noticed that I added a stat block for Sorgath in Kanatafun's most recent post. I hope that I did not overstep here. Kanatafun, you can copy-paste this into your future posts, if you wish. You'll either need to clone the entire post then delete what you don't want before finishing your post or you have to choose to edit the post then copy-past the spoiler section with your stat block.

  7. Visibly frustrated, Valacosti appeals one last time to Sylien. “Praetor. I implore you, send these Pathfinders back from where they came from. This is neither the place nor the time for their presence. For the sake of the people of Fort Bandu, do not let them worsen this situation.” With reluctance, the praetor acknowledges the Pathfinders with a slow nod. Then, after a brief glance to Valacosti, he appears ready to make his decision. Convincing the Praetor: You must attempt a Diplomacy check, representing how well they have argued their case, including any closing argument you wish to make to counter Valacosti’s final plea. You receive a +6 to this check due to your prior successes. Mentions

Tanith glances at her 'team member' as he goes off on what seems to her to be a rant. As he continues, she cottons on to the fact that he's doing his lawyer thing. The rivalry between the Aspis and the Pathfinders is well known, so an accusation of bias is expected. She wasn't sure who he was speaking to and so assumed it was the Aspis, since accusing the clearly impartial commander would be ill advised at best, Then point by point, she works her way through history and politics of the local area, once again looking like she knows her stuff and once more ignoring asides from her thrush familiar, who is speaking in common. The Aspis was difficult to read. Mentally shrugging she reconciled herself to finding out the truth of the matter in due course. OOC: I don't remember the name of Kanatafun's character and it's not in his last post. Sorry, rushed today.
  10. et al. I usually start my post then save. Then I edit. When that happens, a menu opens up to be able to post rolls. It's not perfect, but has worked for me so far. Also, the more information you can give me about your roll (skill, weapon, damage type, target, etc) the better.
  11. rollIn a calming voice "Really now is that how little you think of pathfinders? This whole situation was probably initiated by the Aspis to frame the Pathfinders so they can go unopposed. Every test you put forth we show we are worthy, then the goal posts are moved yet again."

  12. "Is this supposed to make an impression?" Valacosti is quick to dismiss the display of power. "If you think this situation can be solved at the point of a sword or by brandishing some hedge wizardry, you're as ignorant as your predecessor. These Pathfinders will rush headlong into the jungle and slaughter the kobold tribe, creating a power vacuum among the other tribes and only worsen this disaster.” Again, the praetor tries to remain impartial, though it is clear his patience is waning. “Once more I find myself seeing reason in Valacosti’ words. Strength of arms is all well and good, but this is a situation that also requires a certain amount of finesse. How do I know I trust you to handle this situation with a level head and a delicate touch when necessary?" Third Challenge: For their last display of prowess, the Pathfinders should show how they can use subtlety, subterfuge, or historical context (such as understanding the nature of colonist-Mwangi conflict in Sargava) to their advantage by discussing their skills or artfully dismissing the praetor’s concerns. At least one of you must attempt a Bluff, Diplomacy, Knowledge (history), or Sleight of Hand check to impress the praetor. Mentions

Features | Prepared Spells Wild Empathy:A ranger can improve the initial attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check to improve the attitude of a person (see Using Skills). The ranger rolls 1d20 and adds his ranger level and his Charisma bonus to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use wild empathy, the ranger and the animal must be within 30 feet of one another under normal visibility conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. The ranger can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but he takes a –4 penalty on the check.

Tanith, not reacting to Avacosti's irritation, looking rather languid in point of fact, takes a piece of chalk from a pouch and draws a summoning circle, the typical five pointed star inside concentric circles, rune after rune drawn in the space between the inner and outer ring, making it look easy. She is all the while describing what she is doing, the meaning of the runes, what happens to someone who gets the runes wrong. Her familiar, an irridescent thrush, flutters about her offering quiet suggestions... which Tanith ignores. Doubtless her facility with summoning circles does not surprise anyone who is aware of the significance of the red cross symbol, denoting her to be a graduate of the Egorian College of Magic in Cheliax's capital, which specialises in the summoning of devils. Circle completed, she teleports 5' straight back, looking ready for the next challenge. She glances over at Sorgath, whose defensive maneuvers demonstration is equally impressive, and then back to the Praetor, looking entirely unruffled. Following this she returns to eyeing Valacosti. Spellcraft 21 with Aid from Vesal. She is using her Conjuration Specialisation 'Shift' power to complete her little dimension door hop.
  16. Valacosti grows increasingly incensed as the Pathfinders explain their case. “Sharrowsmith professed an intimate understanding of the region and its delicate balance of power as well, and behold the results: dozens dead, dozens more missing, kobolds attacking our mining operations, and people living in fear of the next raid. Praetor, with all due respect, you cannot allow these Pathfinders to exacerbate an already delicate situation.” The praetor remains patient. “Amersanus makes a good point. Sharrowsmith was a well-read and knowledgeable man, yet he disappeared in these jungles and caused damage we’re only beginning to feel the impact of thanks to the local kobold tribes. How is your expedition different? Do you have the necessary strength to survive in this environment where so many others cannot? Show me that those weapons and spellbooks you carry are not just for show.” Second Challenge: You must now demonstrate your combat prowess, be that through an artful flourish of a sword or a careful display of arcane power. At least one of you should attempt a caster level check, combat maneuver check, or Spellcraft check to display some of the magical or martial prowess the group possesses. Go ahead. Impress me.

Tanith, still concealing her faction insignia, seems to go 'still' on seeing Avacosti, this being in marked contrast to the Aspis' agitation. Of all the factions the Dark Archive is tasked with taking on the Society's enemies, so perhaps Tanith considers Avacosti something similar to prey. Tanith ponders what she knows of the nature of the area before speaking. A moment later she speaks, produces a convincing 'lecture' on the area, this delivered in a high class Cheliax accent, which unlike Avacosti's is genuine.
  18. "Some years back, Sharrowsmith had retired from the Pathfinder Society to go into private business. We learned from your correspondnace that he was using his former title while traveling in this region." Vesal explains.

  19. The corporal takes a long pause to consider you before speaking. "Come with me." He turns and walks away without waiting. While most of troop follows along with you, two do wait to bring up the rear. If you do go with them, you're taken to the praetor’s office, a modest and utilitarian space comprised of several tables and a handful of half-stocked bookshelves. A war table featuring a map of the Bandu Hills region sits prominently in the center of the room, and three tall windows nearby let in a great deal of natural light. Praetor Sylien is in mid-conversation with a lanky Garundi man in fine attire. Their conversation stops abruptly, and the praetor’s guest disdainful glares at the latest arrivals. “Pathfinders. I shouldn’t be surprised. Only your organization would have the gall to so brazenly show its face when you’ve already caused so much damage.” “Pathfinders,” the praetor’s voice lacks the contempt of his guest, as if trying to subtly apologize for his tone. “This is Amersanus Valacosti of the Aspis Consortium. We’ve been discussing the troubles Fort Bandu has faced of late—troubles caused by your organization. I was unwilling to disclose the details to Mistress Allahe by courier, but now that you have arrived, I feel it pertinent to explain the nature of Fort Bandu’s… misgivings. Venture-Captain Sharrowsmith came through here some months ago, gathering supplies and information before setting off on an expedition into the hills. There, he roused the local kobold tribes and angered them enough that they now actively raid our settlements and mining operations." “Amersanus Valacosti and I were discussing how the Aspis Consortium may be able to help repair the damage your Society has inflicted on the people of Fort Bandu. Now that you’ve arrived, perhaps we can have a more balanced mediation. Your Pathfinder Society has a damaged reputation in the Bandu Hills, so I ask you state your business and why you think I should allow you to even so much as stay within the fort’s walls. What knowledge do you have of this land and its people that could prevent this situation from deteriorating further? I will only entertain questions regarding Sharrowsmith once I’m assured that providing you information will not further endanger my charges.” Praetor Sylien is like a caged lion—unable to use what strength he has left directly due to Fort Bandu’s dependence on his leadership. The gray in his once coal black hair belies the passing of his youth and the creases in his sun-beaten face tell a story of a lifetime of hard work and little rest. He carries himself with the pride and stature of a man half his age with seemingly infinite patience. In contrast to the praetor, Aspis Consortium agent Amersanus Valacosti seems to have boundless energy. He carries himself with the poise and posture of nobility, affecting a Chelish accent and speech mannerisms to hide any telltale sign that would indicate his true nationality. The only tell of weakness Valacosti may have is his noticeable limp and the stiffness of his right leg, which requires Valacosti to walk with the assistance of an ebony cane topped with a black, serpentine dragon coiled into a figure eight. To get Praetor Sylien on your side you must pass the Praetor's assessment and overcome the objections of the Amersanus. First Challenge: You must make a case for your presence in Fort Bandu, establishing the reason for your arrival, what you hope to accomplish, and whether you're sufficiently knowledgeable about the neighboring wilderness. One of you need to succeed at a DC 15 Knowledge (geography, local, or nature) or Survival check to demonstrate the group’s familiarity with the area. Mentions

He gains a +2 bonus on Bluff, Knowledge, Perception, Sense Motive, and Survival checks against creatures of his selected type. Likewise, he gets a +2 bonus on weapon attack and damage rolls against them. A ranger may make Knowledge skill checks untrained when attempting to identify these creatures. At 5th level and every five levels thereafter (10th, 15th, and 20th level), the ranger may select an additional favored enemy. In addition, at each such interval, the bonus against any one favored enemy (including the one just selected, if so desired) increases by +2. If the ranger chooses humanoids or outsiders as a favored enemy, he must also choose an associated subtype, as indicated on the table below. (Note that there are other types of humanoid to choose from—those called out specifically on the table below are merely the most common.) If a specific creature falls into more than one category of favored enemy, the ranger’s bonuses do not stack; he simply uses whichever bonus is higher. 1st: Monstrous Humanoids (+2) | Freedom FighterFACTION Your family has long waged war against tyranny, and you learned a great deal about guerilla warfare in your youth. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Stealth checks and a +1 trait bonus on attack rolls during surprise rounds. | Orc BloodRACIAL TRAIT Half-orcs count as both humans and orcs for any effect related to race. | Orc FerocityRACIAL TRAIT Once per day, when a half-orc is brought below 0 hit points but not killed, he can fight on for 1 more round as if disabled. At the end of his next turn, unless brought to above 0 hit points, he immediately falls unconscious and begins dying. | Point-Blank ShotFEAT You are especially accurate when making ranged attacks against close targets. Benefit: You get a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls with ranged weapons at ranges of up to 30 feet. | TrackCLASS (RANGER) FEATURE A ranger adds half his level (minimum 1) to Survival skill checks made to follow tracks. Bonus Types The important aspect of bonus types is that two bonuses of the same type don’t generally stack. With the exception of dodge bonuses, most circumstance bonuses, and racial bonuses, only the better bonus of a given type works. Bonuses without a type always stack, unless they are from the same source. Alchemical:An alchemical bonus is granted by the use of a non-magical, alchemical substance such as antitoxin. --- | Armor:An armor bonus applies to armor class and is granted by armor or by a spell or magical effect that mimics armor. Armor bonuses stack with all other bonuses to armor class (even with natural armor bonuses) except other armor bonuses. An armor bonus doesn’t apply against touch attacks, except for armor bonuses granted by force effects (such as the mage armor spell) which apply against incorporeal touch attacks, such as that of a shadow. +2Leather Armor | BAB:This number is a modifier added to your attack rolls. A higher number means you’re better at combat. +1 | Circumstance:A circumstance bonus (or penalty) arises from specific conditional factors impacting the success of the task at hand. Circumstance bonuses stack with all other bonuses, including other circumstance bonuses, unless they arise from essentially the same source. --- | Competence:A competence bonus (or penalty) affects a character’s performance of a particular task, as in the case of the bardic ability to inspire competence. Multiple competence bonuses don’t stack; only the highest bonus applies. --- Deflection:A deflection bonus affects armor class and is granted by a spell or magic effect that makes attacks veer off harmlessly. Deflection bonuses stack with all other bonuses to AC except other deflection bonuses. A deflection bonus applies against touch attacks. --- | Dodge:A dodge bonus improves armor class (and sometimes Reflex saves) resulting from physical skill at avoiding blows and other ill effects. Dodge bonuses are never 1 usually not granted by spells or magic items. Any situation or effect (except wearing armor) that negates a character’s Dexterity bonus also negates any dodge bonuses the character may have. Dodge bonuses stack with all other bonuses to AC, even other dodge bonuses. Dodge bonuses apply against touch attacks. --- | Enhancement:An enhancement bonus represents an increase in the sturdiness and/or effectiveness of armor or natural armor, or the effectiveness of a weapon, or a general bonus to an ability score. Multiple enhancement bonuses on the same object (in the case of armor and weapons), creature (in the case of natural armor), or ability score do not stack. Only the highest enhancement bonus applies. Since enhancement bonuses to armor or natural armor effectively increase the armor or natural armor’s bonus to AC, they don’t apply against touch attacks. --- | Inherent:Content... --- | Insight:An insight bonus improves performance of a given activity by granting the character an almost precognitive knowledge of what might occur. Multiple insight bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest insight bonus applies. --- Luck:A luck bonus represents good (or bad) fortune. Multiple luck bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest luck bonus applies. --- | Morale:A morale bonus represents the effects of greater hope, courage, and determination (or hopelessness, cowardice, and despair in the case of a morale penalty). Multiple morale bonuses on the same character do not stack. Only the highest morale bonus applies. Non-intelligent creatures (creatures with an Intelligence of 0 or no Intelligence at all) cannot benefit from morale bonuses. --- | Natural Armor:A natural armor bonus improves armor class resulting from a creature’s naturally tough hide. Natural armor bonuses stack with all other bonuses to armor class (even with armor bonuses) except other natural armor bonuses. Some magical effects (such as the barkskin spell) grant an enhancement bonus to the creature’s existing natural armor bonus, which has the effect of increasing the natural armor’s overall bonus to armor class. A natural armor bonus doesn’t apply against touch attacks. --- | Profane:A profane bonus (or penalty) stems from the power of evil. Multiple profane bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest profane bonus applies. --- | Racial:A racial bonus comes from the culture a particular creature was brought up in or because of innate characteristics of that type of creature. If a creature’s race changes (for instance, if it dies and is reincarnated), it loses all racial bonuses it had in its previous form. VariousSee Situational Modifiers Resistance:A resistance bonus affects saving throws, providing extra protection against harm. Multiple resistance bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest resistance bonus applies. --- | Sacred:A sacred bonus (or penalty) stems from the power of good. Multiple sacred bonuses on the same character or object do not stack. Only the highest sacred bonus applies. --- | Shield:A shield bonus improves armor class and is granted by a shield or by a spell or magic effect that mimics a shield. Shield bonuses stack with all other bonuses to AC except other shield bonuses. A magic shield typically grants an enhancement bonus to the shield’s shield bonus, which has the effect of increasing the shield’s overall bonus to AC. A shield bonus granted by a spell or magic item typically takes the form of an invisible, tangible field of force that protects the recipient. A shield bonus doesn’t apply against touch attacks. --- | Size:A size bonus or penalty is derived from a creature’s size category. Size modifiers of different kinds apply to armor class, attack rolls, Stealth checks, combat maneuver checks, and various other checks. --- | Trait:A trait bonus is a bonus granted via a character trait. Character traits are an optional additional character defining feature like feats but less powerful (typically about half as strong as a feat.) As with other named bonuses, trait bonuses do not “stack” with other trait bonuses. VariousSee Situational Modifiers Condition(s): None Post "Nice to meet you Sorgath. I am Khan." Khan replied to the fellow half-orc. When the troop of soldiers approached, demanding to know their business, the ranger hung back and remained quiet. OOC & Mechanics .... Features | Prepared Spells Wild Empathy:A ranger can improve the initial attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check to improve the attitude of a person (see Using Skills). The ranger rolls 1d20 and adds his ranger level and his Charisma bonus to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use wild empathy, the ranger and the animal must be within 30 feet of one another under normal visibility conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. The ranger can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but he takes a –4 penalty on the check.

  22. Tanith's spell only reveals that Nieford Sharrowsmith came through here to gather supplies and information. The atmosphere at the fort is rather tense. Your questions about Sharrowsmith are met with cold stares. Merchants refuse business and many curse the Pathfinder Society for causing the "troubles of late." People are tight lipped about the details. Eventually a troop of soldiers come to you. "State your business." says the corporal. Mentions
