To be fair, the thing could summon Bearded Devils, too. There's just about no point ever doing that. 1d6 CR 5 or 2d4 CR 9 ones? :P

That, and Dimensional Anchor + Wall of Ice.

Wonder how many more smites it will take before he realizes that liking something does not make it good, and it certainly does not justify lying about it. Then he can Abundant Step away, just like the Monk failtards. Who he still exactly resembles.
Smiting Imbeciles since 1985.

If you hear this music, run.

And don't forget:


There is no greater contribution than Hi Welcome.

Huge amounts of people are fuckwits. That doesn't mean that fuckwit is a valid lifestyle.

IP proofing and avoiding being CAPed OR - how to make characters relevant in the long term.

Sunic may be more abrasive than sandpaper coated in chainsaws (not that its a bad thing, he really does know what he's talking about), but just posting in this thread without warning and telling him he's an asshole which, if you knew his past experiences on WotC and Paizo is flat-out uncalled for. Never mind the insults (which are clearly 4Chan-level childish). You say people like Sunic are the bane of the internet? Try looking at your own post and telling me you are better than him.

Here's a fun fact: You aren't. By a few leagues.

This thread is quite the hotbed of people popping in and out.
So... I'm really just curious and this is mostly to jaronk but likely to bkdubs123
as well but is this one of those "Someone is wrong on the internet" things?
I ask this because... well I think you're kinda above this type of argument really,
all of you. If everyone is so convinced it seem unlikely that either side i going to
just all of a sudden go "Damn, Sunic... you're right, rogues do suck. Wow."
Or contrarywise that Sunic will go and do the opposite. Both sides have some valid
points but neither has to directly game together so... I mean what are you trying to
prove here? This is baffling you can't GET this much action in a play by post.
So... is this just one of those 30 page Fighter Vs Casters things?
If so, how lame.

It's just that a question was asked by Endarire, and then some guy started calling names. What do you expect?

This is pretty much how all of Endarire's threads end up. What do you expect?

How many times can you watch that DP video with the Pamela Anderson/Britney Spears/Lindsay Lohan lookalike without getting bored, anyways?

Maybe they are doing both. That would make me understand some of the angst / rage

I also suspect that Endaire is secretly laughing at us all. That's why I pop in and out.

This thread has quickly gone from asking an innocent but loaded question, to people hurling insults and claiming you're playing make-believe wrong, and finally to rule 34. This is really creepy at how quickly those evolutions took place.

Efficiency! This is the Min/Max board, after all, so if it's to be found anywhere, it would probably be here.
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

In retrospect, much like Keanu Reeves.
