  1. So, looks like my hard rive is starting to fail. Bad sector ate my character PDF. Bonus reason for the elf bard to be grumpy! I really should be looking into getting a new computer... Anyways, hoping disc scans correctly ID all bad sectors and the rebuild won't get eaten. If so, should get it done on Saturday.

    Well, you could see about whether you can get just one or two small things via the BackerKit pre-sale. They opened that to non-backers at KS campaign conditions, and I think it's still open.
  3. I'm a bit more occupied with a work project than expected. probably won't get to finish my character until next weekend :(

    Boiling Poison Dice set

    In case anyone's interested, the KS link is https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/625856064/boiling-poison-dice-set Personally, I'm more than a bit surprised boiling poison dice do not appear to come in poison green or deadly nightshade colors.
  5. I don't really see anything in the wording of the rules that prevents the free ancestry boost from offsetting the ancestry flaw, and personally, I think that's good because it needs to be allowed. With spellcasting looking to be D&D5-like, dwarfs need to be able to start with CHA 16 and goblins need to be able to start with WIS 16 unless one wants to effectively rule out dwarf bards and goblin clerics. (On a related note, I can't dump WIS to go 18/16/16, because with PF2 core rules, it's not actually possible to assign 10 boosts to a set of three stats; the call is between 18/16/14 and 16/16/16 because that's the full allotment of 3 ancestral, 2 background 1 class, and 3 free boosts that can go to a block of 3 non-flawed stats.)

    Dangerous Dames - Pulp Figures By Bob Murch

    One sculpt in progress image so far, as expected, still quite pulp, but not near as cartoony as that German Viet Cthulhu officer:
  7. Right, well, maybe I can do what I always do and dump wisdom to get that 18/16/16. What could possibly go wrong?

    At least it's not a gazebo...
  9. I'm trying to figure out whether PF2 is lie D&D5 in terms of "casters really need to go all out on the casting stat". In terms of style, the grumpy elf bard would probably be nicest with CHA/DEX/INT 16 (INT because smartass, DEX allowing him to do replace a thief at low level at least), rest 10s, but I guess CHA 18 might be too important to pass up on? Anyone know this, yet?

    I have to admit, of the figs so far, this is what has me most tempted: Shamefully, I must admit that's mostly because of the obvious bad puns, like: In Soviet garden, salad eats you!

    KS says "we again need your help to expand our Bones Classic and Bones Black miniatures lines."

    Add all the really cool stuff that was seen in various previews some of us are waiting for. I for one am honestly not super keen on yet another Bones core set (after four of them, I kind of don't really need more 'generic personalities'), but I'm very much waiting for some of the presumed add-ons that have been teased to make their appearance in the KS.
  13. @Roonfizzle, I agree with your interpretation. I just think it's a bad rule, because it blocks non-musician bards people might envision from being effective on a rather fundamental level, which seems to be a stark contradiction to what PF2 was supposedly meant to achieve.
  14. The thing is, given the instrument by RAW replaces material components, it pretty much is required in a key benefit/feature of bardic spellcasting kind of way. So no acrobat, dancer, mime, thespian, or horror clown bards under these rules. Unless the horror clown uses a kazoo, I guess. Whatever. A fancy silver hand harp fits the grumpy elf and and apparently, as long as it doesn't sound extra fancy, is a mere 8sp just like that kazoo!

    You could roll with that interpretation, though I'd argue the steps are way too small for that. At 20 on the 12cm model, assuming a 28mm scale, these are closer to modern stair steps than huge stepped pyramid steps. One thing that was a thing during some Egyptian dynasties were smaller stepped cult pyramids (not actually used to bury anyone important), which this piece would would work for. But as a truly impressive pyramid, I'd say the piece just won't work at 28mm.
