  1. Hey guys, next time consider a mute button when you aren’t feeling 100%. Not listenable with the sniffling.

    Yo, thanks for the review of the content. It’s inspired me to create a Vigilante (or two!) for PFS! Perhaps an Avenger who’s vigalante identity disguises himself as a skeleton in a suit of armor, wielding a Greatclub carved from a huge creature’s femur while spouting bone puns the entire time. “You’re a real bone head to mess with me!” or “This sorcerer’s magic has me rattled.”

    My only concern is that I think you give the Brute archetype way too much credit as a PC option. It gains large size without a stat adjustment. Every single fight you have to make a will save (THAT SCALES FASTER THAN YOUR LOWERED BASE SAVE) to avoid attacking allies. Every single time your social identity is threatened it has a chance to basically stun you for a full round while blowing your secret identity. It looks to me like the weaknesses from the Master Chemyst’s force shapechanging and the “kill my friends” weakness of the 3.5 Frenzied Berserker without the benefits of either of them.

    Granted, actually making the Hulk would be a balancing nightmare, but when compared to a Beast Morph Alchemist it really needs to step up its game.
