Q 56: On the PFSRD site I found the updated psionic classes. None of them has Concentrations as a class skill, even though they need it for gaining focus. WTH am I missing?


And then I read the core rules. How silly was that.

Q 57 Is there a dog-like race that can be played in PF? I know they've brought in a couple of new playable races in the Adventure Paths, but haven't seen a dog yet. Even 3rd party PF-based is fine.

Closest thing I can find is the ratman, although perhaps an update will come here, where they talk about monsters as PCs. I havent flipped through Bestiary 1 or 2 fully yet, so there might be one lying in wait there.

Not directly, but you can use Anthropomorphic Animal to get your dog-man.

But its not exactly hard to make one:
Dogman
Medium Humanoid
Speed Dogmen have a land speed of 40ft.
Abilities Constitution +2, Wisdom +2, Intelligence -2. Dogmen are tireless in their persistence and famed for their insight, though inflexible in thought.
Low Light Vision  Dogmen can see twice as far as humans in poor lighting.
Scent Dogmen retain their keen nose of their canine forebears.
Natural Weapons Dogmen have a natural bite attack that deals 1d6 damage. This is a primary attack, or secondary if used with a manufactured weapon.
Canine Instinct Dogmen have an exceptional affinity for tracking and hunting, they gain a +2 racial bonus on Perception and Survival checks.
Canine Empathy Dogmen gain the Wild Empathy ability as a druid of their level, but only applicable to canines(dogs, wolves and similar creatures). Wild canines are Indifferent instead of Unfriendly and domestic canines are Friendly.
Natural Armor Dogmen's thick fur grant them a +1 natural armor bonus to AC.
Languages Dogmen begin play speaking Common and Sylvan. Dogmen of high Intelligence scores may choose any of the following: Elven, Gnome, Goblin, Halfling and Orc.
The mind transcends the body.
It's also a little cold because of that.
Please get it a blanket.

I wish I could read your mind,
I can barely read mine.

But its not exactly hard to make one:
No, they're not. They're in 3.5's Savage Species. Just need to give them +2 Wisdom. I was just looking for a PF one as opposed to bringing one over.

And just found the 3rd Party Animus, Dog subrace. They're basically humans with an animal's head. There's also a frog, cat, spider, and a few others.

I'd say use the Savage Species one, but mine is basically exactly the same, except I replaced Speak With Animals 1/day(which is really few to carry the flavor) with a specialized Wild Empathy. And of course, the higher speed is because dogs are fast for their size.

Q58: Can a Hungry Ghost Monk steal ki (or hit points) by using a ranged weapon?  Is Steal Ki considered a ki strike?

It specifically occurs on a critical hit, so yes it works with any weapon, and no, its not a ki strike unless it happens to trigger ON a ki strike attack.

Q59

Anyone tell me, from the GM guide of PF, what in the hell a Pilgrim does?  A DM friend of mine had us randomly pick characters from the NPCs in the back that had to be "CR 5".  Seeing how...odd PF has it's CR system the group is imba.  Not the point though, just wondering what class combinations, if any, are/is the Pilgrim.

The Pilgrim in the NPC listing is just a CR 3 Commoner 5 with healing, religion and perception skills, as well as a quantity of divine healing spells as potions.

Properly speaking they're either making a journey to or from a holy site.

Q 60 I know that the illithid and the beholder got 3rd party PF versions done up for them (phrenic, evil eye), but what about the githyanki? Is there a PF version of them yet?

Q 61 A while back I asked this, found it, and now lost the answer. It was a Pathfinder book (don't remember if it was the 3.5 version of current) that gave you an ACF for clerics that allowed them to gain a full BAB, but I think it sacrificed one of their domains. Anyone know where this ACF is? In the same book, a fighter gets 4+Int skills and a few more class skills in exchange for the 1st level feat.

Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

Q63: Why doesn't the Weretiger Hybrid have pounce and rake listed under its special attacks? The Lycanthrope page states that a lycanthrope gains the special attacks, qualities, and abilities of the base creature, which would seem to indicate that it should have these attacks.

Additionally, following the same Lycanthropy rules, shouldn't it be Large [size of base creature or animal, whichever is greater] and have +5 natural armor [+2 of the base animal, which is +3 for a tiger].

Q64 What good ways are there of making full attacks on a charge for a rogue? I know I need pounce, but how do I get it easily?
Monks are pretty much the best designed class ever.

dimension door (from UMD) + Dimensional Agility feat chain?
4 levels of psychic warrior or 3 of war mind will get you the ability to manifest psionic lion's charge, and if you choose the Feral Warrior path the former also grants a pseudo-pounce when you expend psionic focus. There's a trait which is half-strength Practiced Manifester, to get you some extra pp.

Thanks, would the dimension door trick work with that skirmish ability from the scout package?
