A UPS definitely sounds like the way to go.  I would recommend against rednecking one, computers are finicky about their power.

I'm a computer guy and can remotely diagnose things with the magic of the internet if need be.

What can I do for you in exchange for such a huge favor?

Schedule a day and time with me.  Discord would probably be easiest, but you can also just PM me.

@SorO, that's interesting but with the kinds of tables I end up working with that doesn't make things significantly easier for me.   :p
Yeah, if we get into it I think we both know what I prefer to use.

The point is the other people need help through too. Be it a website converting a separate Excell sheet over or something else. Someone made the request, benefit was seen, and it was added. And while it is character extensive, it does a lot to try and turn class table making into copy and paste.

I will definitely agree that for class tables or anything else repetitive it can help a lot.

Nice! It looks like it pulls from Word, too, which I tend to use for writing up all my classes at home.

Thanks for this!

You're welcome!

I haven't started it, I was waiting for Tandda to be done with major revisions.

It does, but now you have to specify if fusillades are supernatural or not.   :p

The last sentence should say something like "A Tandda can never have levels in classes with class features affected by this ability."

I think this makes all Tandda's Fighters or Rogues.

The level check is better than a flat-out percentage chance.

So what you're ultimately saying is that it pays more to be a guy who outruns range of any weapon than it pays to be able to withstand that guy's attack, gotcha.  :P

I'm saying that both are viable builds in normal D&D.   :P

From a purely theoretical standpoint, half hp vs better speed + energy + hardpoints checks out.  That's a glass cannon and actually has a tradoff more than +1 AC vs ARMS and an extra +4 to hide (also roughly 2/3 of the hp of ARMS).

Don't they make up for it by having a lot more hardpoints and Arsenal space?

My point is kind of, building things specifically to be beefy still doesn't seem to overcome how many different ways there are to mince that beef into tiny pieces.

Actually I was so distracted by Transform analysis that I forgot about the KNIGHTMAREs.

Unless being a tiny mecha has some sort of bonus they kind of suck (I don't know if mecha have size bonuses/penalties as normal).

Even if they do, does being harder to hit and good at hiding (and a little faster) make up for equivalent arsenal/hardpoints as a VALKYRIE with half the HP?

The Tandda aren't in the chart at the beginning of the races section (Table 1-1).  I'm not sure how I feel about Magical Void.

For Magical Void, what if instead of a big fuck you making abilities fail it instead nerfs the user of the ability.  I tried to write something up but it just didn't work out.  I was thinking of having it be a chance the the "caster level" got reduced by 1 per Tandda within range (with a minimum).  The question is, is it a minimum of the caster level for the base ability (ex: 1 for all runes because they have a 1 ability but the Bound in Agony seed has a lowest cost of 4 so whatever the CL requirement of spending 4 points is), or should the minimum caster level be lower and you have to declare what you're using after you know what your CL is?  CL reduction for ongoing effects would remain even when the effect leaves the area.


The Runeborn Ancestral Focus effects that require sacrificing all foci should probably have a minimum foci requirement.  Also, how does In This Cavern interact with effects that destroy the body?

That is a lot of bonus feats for the Runecarver.

I just discovered something and want to share it with all of you.

If you're like me, coding tables from scratch is a pain (especially ones with lots of columns).

However I have found a website that accepts table data from Excel (or any other spreadsheet program) and converts it into a basic bbcode table that you can then adjust (adding colors or lines or whatnot).  It can also output code for html tables as well as for putting into a wiki.

Real Robot Math Analysis

I obviously don't watch robot anime because I didn't realize that all four generics are acronyms until after I made my spreadsheet with a huge names column.

ARMS HP felt odd when compared to the others but when I started writing out an actual breakdown to explain myself it made sense so nevermind.  Everyone has the same basic progression layout.

VALKYRIE's Transform cost goes up at level 6 & 7, is that intentional?  1-5 it costs 10 Arsenal space.  At 6 it costs 15 arsenal space and at 7 it costs 20.

Other than that I just don't know the system well enough to make a further comparison between the generics or compare the generics vs the non-generics because I don't know what arsenal space and hardpoints can buy.

Here's a basic table of all of the generic robots if someone wants to do something with it.

So...

3rd informed me that not only did the bosses friend file charges of harassment, but the boss left them on her desk for everyone to read.  Which they did.  And they solicited my coworkers to file statements about me.

Well that's illegal.


Chatted with bosses boss about it today.  She advised me in future as far as bosses friend goes to document her and approach boss to cover myself, and then approach her when boss does nothing.

hen she called back 20 minutes later.  Asked if Id farted in post on Friday.  This segued into a bunch of other stuff and we were on phone for an hour before she asked if I was home or working.  Told her I was home and had extensive notes, call anytime.  She seemed a bit more pissed this time around so I know she confronted boss.

I expect tomorrow to be fun.

Good luck!

I didn't say that it made the feat good, I just said that being permanently dazed isn't something to worry about.   :p

Also we have different kinds of Pathfinder GMs.

18
Those were the exact spells I was referring to when I spoke of spells with instantaneous duration, but it's an open question as technically speaking effects with a duration of instantaneous are interpreted to be permanent effects.

Eh, even then a 6th level paladin could remove it and since the feat isn't a curse, disease, or poison the removal is permanent.

I'm not really comfortable editing "creative" writing, style is very subjective and there are a lot of things that people do that I loathe but aren't actually incorrect writing (I didn't read your work so I am not targeting you).

Real Robot in depth analysis will happen but it might take some time.
