More Pathfinder and light entertainment...

RPGLED Pathfinder Session 11

Filesize: 107MB

Despite the DM's best efforts to move the plot along, the players insist on getting down and dirty with the crafting rules and doing some casual shopping. They also have several awkward interactions with a series of prickly NPC's.

Was something changed with the alchemist class or brew potion? in pathfinder? I didn't think spells with range personal could be used in potions.

Potions of expeditious retreat, true strike, and comprehend language are all range personal.

Though expeditious retreat and true strike are both awesome spells for a multiclasser.

We totally messed up the potion rules in that episode - in fact, I'm pretty sure we still haven't gotten them right. :P

To be fair, you figured it out towards the end. But, like the grapple rules, it sounds like you revisit them often...

Really enjoying it. Thanks!

Wait - spells of range personal can't be made into potions?

I know that the spell has to target one or more creatures to be made into a potion, but a spell that has range personal still targets a creature - namely the caster.

Is this another errata that I missed the memo on?

In pathfinder at least they are explicit about it...

In D&D 3.5, it's not in the feat description, or the potion description in the DMG...It's under the 'Creating Magic Items section.

http://www.d20srd.or... ... cItems.htm

Creating Potions
The creator of a potion needs a level working surface and at least a few containers in which to mix liquids, as well as a source of heat to boil the brew. In addition, he needs ingredients. The costs for materials and ingredients are subsumed in the cost for brewing the potion—25 gp × the level of the spell × the level of the caster.

All ingredients and materials used to brew a potion must be fresh and unused. The character must pay the full cost for brewing each potion. (Economies of scale do not apply.)

The imbiber of the potion is both the caster and the target. Spells with a range of personal cannot be made into potions. [emphasis mine]

The creator must have prepared the spell to be placed in the potion (or must know the spell, in the case of a sorcerer or bard) and must provide any material component or focus the spell requires.

If casting the spell would reduce the caster’s XP total, he pays the XP cost upon beginning the brew in addition to the XP cost for making the potion itself. Material components are consumed when he begins working, but a focus is not. (A focus used in brewing a potion can be reused.) The act of brewing triggers the prepared spell, making it unavailable for casting until the character has rested and regained spells. (That is, that spell slot is expended from his currently prepared spells, just as if it had been cast.) Brewing a potion requires one day.

Item Creation Feat Required
Brew Potion.

I've been really enjoying these episodes, and I particularly liked the setting of this one. I'm a really newbie GM (and player), and it's really helpful to hear a group of motivated players have interesting adventures. The political tensions are a very cool touch, and it's interesting how the players have managed to hear and see both sides by taking a roundabout route.

Also the Gem is one cool magical mystery item.

Thanks! Things will only get more complicated politically from this episode onwards. :P There's a new episode in the hopper that hasn't been uploaded yet - I'm hoping Hal will get to it soon.

Just checking to make sure I am going to ask the right person this question: Wolfsnap, are you the guy who wrote Tomb of Hagemoth? If so , does that also mean that you are the DM running the game where the team just got beat up badly by a Troll that took their pony down twice and they have a girl travelling with them named Sarah Jane, and Peter is the teenage wizard who's being held captive 'cause he hates the team ?
If you are I have a question to ask you, but I will wait for your reply...Unless you have no reply at all.....

That would be me on all counts! I'd be more than happy to answer any questions.

It seems like every episode I hear a Genesis reference... When you finally revealed the name of the girl to be Sarah Jane I was convinced. I remember once you had mentioned that a character was " Entangled". Without having kept a list I am in a somewhat of an unprepared position to list the others, but ..... I was just wondering.
Reason is, I am a huge Genesis fan, and I am either crazy and just hearing things, or you are a fan as well.
Just wondering....

Heh - I never actually thought about that. I'm not a hge fan, but I do like me some Genesis. Thus far, I haven't included any intentional references - chalk it up to coincidence. However, any references you hear to 70's Prog Rock group Yes (of which I am a huge fan) are probably meant to be there.

When I started this campaign, I didn't have a lot of time to flesh it out ( I still don't) so I was clear with teh group that I'm mostly making this up as I go, and I am shamelessly stealing names, plots, and even entire dungeons from other sources.

Ok ! Just thought I'd ask.
Did I hear them mention the Gates of Delirium once?
I love it no matter what prog rock band you like. Perhaps they could come across the Court of the Crimson King someday........
