    Yeah, I didn't include it in the screenshot and didn't have a save available to go back and look again. Like I said, I believe it was 19, which means a +4 str bonus, and leaves 9 unaccounted for assuming they had weapon specialization (which I don't recall seeing either). I'm on Core, so there shouldn't be any boosts, but whenever I make it back to that house, I'll check again.

    Str. of 21. Besides power attack and weapon spec already mentioned, sheet says he's got piranha strike and weapon training (listed twice, once just as weapon training and another as weapon training light blades).

    That gets it a lot closer, but should still be a damage bonus of only 16, right? 4 from power attack (doubled), 4 from piranha strike (doubled), 5 from strength, 1 from weapon training, 2 from weapon specialization.

    Ahh of course, completely forgot about weapon training.

    Odd that he would have Piranha Strike AND Power Attack, usually those aren't used together

    No, you cannot benefit from PA and PS at the same time:

    There is a mod for Kingmaker that literally does this, it reduces the benefit from Insane stat scaling early on, and raises it towards the end of the game

    Slightly disappointing that Owlcat haven't figured out to do this by themselves

    I didn't mind the harsh difficulty early. I minded the lax difficulty late. And people seemed to think this was fixed in Wrath

    Yes, you would think so from the description. Alas, you are wrong.

    Crazy that they are allowed together. Do you know if that's an Owlcat implementation or a TT thing?

    OC almost certainly. Not reason you shouldn't be allowed to use both. They're not very good in this setting.

    I would say it's a bug. Seems it was like this in kingmaker too. Either they never bothered to fix it, or it was always intended and the description is wrong.

    I think I took Pitanha a grand total of once. It only made sense late because Unfair plateaued too early. PA was a prereq and multiplied the STR bonus and Deadly had the hat but no reason to take Piranha.

    the entire game consists of paths where you can simp for various women. Paizo is in the business of promoting cuckery and femboynism, not rpgs

    Owlcat is living in 1989. The question is whether a side character who isn't even a companion serves as a camel toe inside the tent or as an attempted retreat to a viable surrender.

    Anyone familiar with present-day trans politics and the money and muscle behind it knows that the entire hairy ass of that camel is already inside the tent stinking up the joint and any sign of retreat on their part is a welcome advance for the good guys.

    I say we chalk this one up, accept the olive branch and stand vigilant against any backsliding.

    Simping for various women? Which women? As with InEffective memetards minmaxxing for 3.5 and playing the whole game underleveled and so crying for nerfs you phaggots are seeing what you want to see instead of what's there. Most of what I see on the femael side are a bunch of overdrawn cunts simping for me. And a send-up of a "fucking love science" nerd chick along with a no Gods no Masters Soyertard trying to win over the world for Niceanity. Easygoing big black momma who can get some shit done is in fact a thing on the ground here in the states and a welcome alternative to the pissed off entitlement queen the corporate media likes to push. But nobody's seriously simping for her.

    D_X here are some screenshots of this particular MC and their party. Keep in mind, almost all of my previous pathfinder experience was playing solo, so I am unfamiliar with building characters for team play and so made some mistakes along the way. There are likely to be several things you can improve. I have also added some commentary on each character.

    Selene (My MC).

    I played this character as a supportive cleric with a heavy emphasis on buffing party saves and attack rolls, as well as reducing the same things on enemies. Guarded Hearth is a great ability to use when you encounter a boss, but unless you intend to rest spam I wouldn't bother using it outside of that. At level 9 I took 1 level in Zen Archer as well as weapon focus: shortbow. This was to take advantage of the following weapon on this character, with the monk's perfect strike ability in addition to the extra AC.
    [​IMG]
    Looking back, I should have just stuck it on Lann at the time and then moved it onto Arueshalae, but I had already decided I wanted Lann to use a longbow and I was determined to stick with my decision. When it came down to Mythic feats, I did strongly consider taking additional domains. The Knowledge domain provides an aura which allows allies to reroll their attack rolls and take the better result. The Luck domain also had a nice bonus (I forgot what) and the Nobility domain had an aura which granted +2 insight to attack rolls to everyone within it. The repose domain early on is also exceedingly good for lazyness (and I do like being lazy), with an aura that provides immunity to death effects. In the end I decided not to go those routes, but they are definitely a good option. Guide to the Faithful is a really nice penalty to inflict on enemies, reducing their AC by 4. Definitely my favorite option out of the available ones.

    Here is Seelah.

    In retrospect power attack may not have been worth using, you get so many powerful buffs from angel that add many damage dice, that the extra hit chance from not using power attack may not be worth it. Last Stand on the other hand, proved to be exceedingly good and in future play I will probably take it even earlier, especially if I decide to try a full unfair run at some point. It is hard to overstate just how useful those extra rounds can be. Once I got to Drezen, I found a really nice Scimitar in 1 of the shops which gave bonuses when you have an animal companion. Since she had an animal companion it seemed like an ideal fit for her and so I ended up deciding to make that her permanent weapon choice. I was not expecting the significantly better scimitar with 3d6 fire damage you get later on, which ended up making it an even better decision.

    Arueshalae.

    I decided to let her inherit the position Lann had been occupying with the Longbows. Not much to comment about her really, she performed up to expectations. I am not really sure how I feel about Always a Chance however in retrospect, its probably worth missing that feat entirely.

    Greybor.

    Not much to say about him either really, other than the fact I really wish I had taken last stand a whole lot earlier than I did.

    Probably the most controversial decision I made. Very early on I realized I really was not taking advantage of his magic much and that I valued his sneak attack dice much, much more. He was already set up to easily go Arcane Trickster and Arcane Trickster gets Sneak Attack die more often than Eldritch Scoundrel does. As a result of that I decided to go full in on Arcane Trickster instead, pretty much reserving any spell slots he acquired for a couple of personal buffs.

    Nenio.

    [​IMG]
    I played her in a similar fashion to my MC, except in her case focusing on buffs and control spells. I let my MC handle any dispel checks however, since they would cost Nenio 2 spell slots instead of only 1.

    If you have any other questions about my characters just ask, otherwise I think that covers most of it.
