PFRPG House Rules & Clarifications

Postby Augur » Tue Jun 11, 2019 5:09 pm

PFRPG House Rules
  1. City Gates Of Llorn: Change: No mages or psychics are standing constant watch at the city gates.
  2. Rifter content is banned from use in PFRPG save for what's recorded here.
  3. The special materials from PFWB13 (Corobite, White Iron, Gantriium, etc.) confer no special mechanical bonuses; they are strictly "flavor text."
  4. All familiars must be mature. No under age familiars.
  5. Upon advancement in level, the character receives +1d6 to S.D.C. to be rolled during the level up process up until 5th level. There are no S.D.C. increases outside of skills/magic beyond level five.
  6. When a warlock or other practitioner of magic summons a creature via a spell, every additional summoning costs more 50% P.P.E. than the previous one (compounding).
      Example: Zephyr summons a Phantom for 30PPE, he wants to summon another one before dismissing his current one. He must now expend 45PPE to summon the next one. Zephyr then wishes to summon a third Phantom before dismissing either of the other two, he will need to expend 65 PPE. If Zephyr were to dismiss Phantom #1, and then try summoning again the price would remain at 45PPE as the price will be judged on how many active phantoms exist. If Zephyr wants to summon a fifth phantom while already having four active, he would need to expend over 100PPE to complete the summon. This does not apply to summoning, then dismissing and resummoning again. This only applies to the quantity of summoned creatures alive versus the price of their existence.
  7. Druids can add the spell "Mend Wood" (p.94, MoM) to their spell list at 4th level.
  8. Regarding the spell "Increase Weight," items on or worn by a person or mount will get that being's save.
  9. BTS Psionics are inappropriate & banned from use in the PFRPG dimension.
  10. Metamorphosis: Animal; changes:
    • Transformation of gear is limited to 2 lbs. per level of the caster
    • Equipment doesn't function while transformed regardless of type, but magic items still radiate magic.
    • Total encumbrance applies in full for all transformed equipment in any form taken.
  11. Life Force Wizard spells are unavailable.
  12. Dual classing follows site rules; all required unlocks must be purchased prior to dual classing.
  13. Perception bonuses
    • Warlocks: +10%
    • Wizards/Half Wizards/Forsaken Mage: No bonus.
    • Mind Mage: +15%
    • Summoner: No bonus.
    • Thief: +15%
    • Barbarian: +15% in wilderness environments
    • Soldier: +10%
    • Undead Hunter: No bonus.
    • Longbowman: +15%
    • Assassin: +10%
    • Druid: +15% in Wilderness, -10% in villages, -20% in large towns, -30% in cities
    • Paladin/Knight: +15%
    • Noble: No bonus.
    • Priest: No bonus.
  14. Psychic Body Field (Super Psionic) is available & treated as analogous to the spell Armor of Ithan.
  15. The spell "Fleet Feet" does not stack with automatic dodge.
  16. Time required for any custom-made item:
    • Metalworking (special!):
      • This skill enables the Blacksmith to build metal objects, particularly weapons, armor, tools and jewelry.
        • Hand tools, jewelry and other small objects require 1D4 days of solid effort (8 hours a day with minimal interruption).
        • Hand weapons and light armor require 1D4 weeks of solid effort.
        • Heavy armor requires 3D4 weeks of solid effort.
      • On any job, the Blacksmith may double the time required to make the object for a +20% bonus on the skill roll.
      • Adding special bonuses to weapons (for Dwarven or Kobold/Kiridoi human characters) or increasing armor S.D.C. requires a separate skill roll; any failed roll ruins the item. When adding bonuses to weapons, a separate roll is required for each additional "plus" being instilled on the weapon.
      • Skill Ratio: 40% +5% per level of experience.
      • Dwarven Blacksmiths get a one·time +10% bonus; Kobolds get a +5% bonus.
  17. Learning New Spells is covered here. Availability & restrictions are covered here.
  18. Other Sources of P.P.E.: is as per Rifts: Ultimate Edition, p.286; the p.181 entry in PFRPG is invalid.

Re: PFRPG House Rules & Clarifications

Postby Augur » Tue Jun 11, 2019 6:37 pm

General Clarifications
  • A druid's "Healing Touch" is exactly analogous to the spell "Heal Wounds."
  • Cloud of Slumber is a 2nd level wizard spell that costs 6 P.P.E. to activate. The rest of the spell is as the warlock spell (p.221, PFRPG).
  • Armor Restrictions (p.270, PFRPG) & Armor Repair (p.271, PFRPG)
  • Magic Armor Repair: the same rules regarding time, restrictions, etc. as for standard armor, only double the cost, and can only be done by an alchemist.



Weapons Clarifications

Size Matters
Giant Weapons do one additional die of damage because of size and weight. This includes Troll, Ogre and Wolfen weapons.
Gnome size weapons are all very small; knives, short swords, blunt, staves axes, sling and spears do 1D4 damage. Large swords, ball and chain and pole arms do 1D6 damage. Short bow does 1D4 and Cross bow does 1D6.

The following is a list of superiorly crafted weapons, the bonuses resulting from the quality, and the price.
The price increase of superior weapons is indicated as a percentile increase/addition to a standard weapon of that type.
Example:
    a standard broad sword costs 40 gold pieces
    a +1 to damage costs 150% more or 100 gold total
    a +2 to damage costs 200% more or 120 gold
    +3 to damage costs 400% more or 200 gold, etc.

Pricing:
  • Dwarven craftsmanship is the very best in the world. Even standard (no modifiers) items cost 30% more if they are of Dwarven construction.
  • Kobolds and Jotans are also excellent smiths, second only to dwarves, and even standard items cost 20% more than standard.
  • +50% to item's base cost if giant-sized
  • -25% from item's base cost if gnome-sized
  • Double the cost if silver-coated

Step 1: Item base cost
Step 2: Dwarven, Kobold, or Jotan cost modifier
Step 3: Size cost modifier
Step 4: Silver-coated cost modifier
Step 5: Feature cost(s) modifier(s)

A weapon can have one of each possible feature type, but the cost % modifier also stacks.

Ranged Weapons
Bows & crossbows are not crafted via metalworking, so Dwarves, Kobolds, and Jotan have never specialized the skills necessary to make superior quality weapons of this kind. Some rare specialists have done so, but tend to either be Elves, Humans, or from one of the lesser races native to forests & jungles. GMs, use your discretion.

    +1 to parry and strike: add 1000%
    +2 to parry and strike: add 2000%


Specialty Craftsmen
Steel Anvil (Llorn): Weapons cost twice the standard Dwarven rate, but are considered the finest in Llorn.
Feature: Steel Anvil Craftsmanship
Choose one modifier:
    +1 to strike

    +2 to damage


Specialty Materials
Stonewood (Northern Hinterlands): Weapons cost twice the standard Dwarven rate; uncommon availability in the Northern Hinterlands, very rare availability elsewhere.

    P.S. 22 or less: -3 to strike, -3 to parry
    +1D6 to damage
    x2 weight & S.D.C. of item
