looking for a way to protect myself against divination with the least amount of ressources

I am a fairly high-level wizard. I could learn mind blank or nondetection, or use an amulet of protection against detection and location, But 8th level slots are too valuable, burning 25gp every day is annoying, and I don’t want to use an attunement slot on this. Is there anything that I can do? I was thinking of using the simulacrum of a monster or summoning and binding an outsider with the right ability, but the simulacrum ability would have to be at-will or not be a spell because simulacrums don’t get spells back, and the summoned outsider must be cr 9 or less. Is there anything in the monster manual that would fit? Or any other solution I could use?

Looking for kingdom building resource that includes attracting a populous

My GM gave my character land for a barony. However, there is currently not much there and they did not give me any rules for building it up. One thing they tasked my character with was attracting the population that will live in my barony.

I’m looking for sourcebooks or rules sets for ruling and constructing a kingdom. Particularly I’m looking for some that that: Give rules for small scale holdings (a barony within a kingdom not necessarily the whole kingdom) Anything on immigration or population transfer. Anything on attracting cohorts to your kingdom/holdings.

I’m playing pathfinder 1e. The setting is Mystara. But I’m fine with rules from whatever system since I’m just looking for inspiration to suggest some things to the GM. I am aware of the pathfinder kingdom building rules and they are not what I’m looking for in this instance.

Looking for an old adventure module – Heroes explore a tower and find a trapped wizard

I’m looking for an old adventure module and I can’t remember the name.

This is what I remember:

  • For AD&D 1e, and may have been a DM’s Guild publication

  • For low level characters, not more than 5th

  • Wizard is trapped in a magic circle and begs for help

  • One room is a "refrigerator" with a bound ice-elemental to keep it cold

  • One room has a pet basilisk, and anti-stoning spectacles hanging outside the door

  • Magical "elevator" that goes to every floor of the tower, and one floor is "secret"

  • I think the cover art was a B&W drawing of a lone medieval type tower, with lightning bolts flashing around it. The perspective has the viewer looking up at the tower from the ground level.

Looking for help

So say you have a YouTube video url

There are sites that allow you to submit the url or video ID and it embeds it on there site.  

1.  How can I search for these types of sites.   I have a list of them now straight to videos that’s been listed.  

But most of all.
2.  Does gsa offer this sort of submission types for embed like this on sites that offer it

If not what software recommendation does 

Thank you in advance 

Looking for (even unofficial) duelist variants

As @KRyan told me, it seems like the duelist PrC is a little bit broken. But my party is currently lost in the middle of savages countries far from any civilization and it is very unlikely that I meet any PrC coach before a long time.

I am currently swashbuckler 5/Dragonmark heir 2/duelist 2/blade of orien 1, and I was planning to keep leveling as a duelist for some time. I think this build is not completely unbalanced compared to the builds of my teammates as they don’t put out as much optimization effort as I do. I chose to train the class knowing its flaws, but I considered it was a realistic evolution for a swashbuckler.

Nevertheless, some duelist levels like the 4th: “+2 on reflex saving throws” are really boring, so I am beginning to research additional content about this PrC like official alternative levels or widely acknowledged homebrews.

EDIT: I am specifically looking for optimizations of the duelist class, which from my point of view essentially sums up to “a character with style (like the swashbuckler) using a rapier and no armor and adding INT to AC“. What I am expecting is mostly alternative class levels, either as a few errata or a total redesign. I would rather it being some already well known content so that it would be easier to negotiate it with my DM.

(In case you were wondering, I did try negotiating taking only 3 levels of swashbuckler, but our DM insisted on us taking 5 level on our baseclass before multiclassing. Plus I liked the flamboyance of this type of character and did not want to change it to much. KRyan suggested me rebuilding as Factotum or Warblade but they are from books that are not allowed in my campaign.)

Looking for a game, cannot remember the name of it [closed]

I am unsure it it’s actually an RPG game, but it’s kind of like Scrutinized, i am like 65% sure it has made by EA because i have a medium-strong memory of playing it through Origin. It has an abstract art style and is called something like Disgruntled or something, you are playing as a detective if remember correctly, and the game cover is blue abstract art with a man with a monocle (or whatever it’s called, glasses on only one eye). Does anybody have any idea which game this might be? Also sorry it this is not the right forum, i don’t know where else to ask this.

However, the final graph is weird (the mesh) enter image description here

It does not work when I increase the InterpolationOrder, and it does not work when I increase the number of data points. What is the problem here? Thank you so much.

Paladin archer looking to combat optimize my 9th level choices

I am looking for any good point to improve my character. I’d like to be the “rock star” among my companions. This is my first character what i made. I already looked in all known guides: Bodhi’s, Cryptic’s, Deadeye’s Servant, Thallin’s, …

My companions are a Cleric and a Fighter.

The fighter’s primary role is to beat weak creatures and to keep away strong ones from us. He is using two kukris (using the weapon finesse feat) or one kukri with a heavy shield. He can have around 28-30 AC. So he is primarily a damage dealer and secondary a “tank“.

The cleric usually tries to save(like cure *** wounds etc.) us. If he isn’t doing that, he often uses Divine Power spell to kick out our enemies. He has Impaler of Thorns to do this job well. He is primary a “nuker” and secondary a healer(support). Both players have level 8 characters.

And finally I usually cast Bless and/or Bless Weapon (on the fighter) before an encounter from wands. When a situation requires, I use weapon bond, lay on hands class ability, and the Divine Favor (one reason of Fate’s Favored trait) spell which I prepare 3 per day. I use a Wand of Cure Light Wounds to fulfill our healing after combat needs.

In combat, I try to beat evil creatures as soon as possible via application of DPS.

My character

Name: Dranko Alignment: Lawful good Race: Human Hit Dice: 8 Class: Level 8 Paladin Deity: Iomedae

Save | Base | mod | misc. | total

Fortitute | 6 | -1 | 5 | 10

Will | 6 | -1 | 5 | 10

[Archetypes]

  • Oath of Vengeance

[Traits]

  • Magical Knack – +2 caster level to one spellcasting class up to your HD.
  • Fate’s Favored – Whenever you are under the effect of a luck bonus of any kind, that bonus increases by 1.

[Items]

  • Snakeskin Tunic
  • Efficient Quiver
  • Belt of giant strength +2
  • Headband of Alluring Charisma +2
  • Composite Bow +2 (+1magic)
  • Ring of Vast Intelligence +2
  • Cloak of resistance +1
  • Boots of Levitate

Its cost is about 30 000 golds together. I gather items this during 8 level progressing.

[Skills]

  • Perception, Diplomacy, Use Magical Device [8 points]
  • Acrobatics [5 points]
  • Spellcraft, Sense Motive, Ride, Knowledge(religion, nobility, planes, nature, arcana), Heal, Handle Animal, Disable Device [1 point]

[What is my idea]

My idea is at 9 level, get feat Unsanctioned Knowledge. Problem is that I am very hesitant… I cant decide what should I pick. Here is the list of my ideas…

  • [1] Unseen Servant/Expeditious Retreat
  • [2] Heroism
  • [3] Haste/Channel Vigor
  • [4] Greater invisibility/Echolocation/Stoneskin/Divine Power

I looked for long duration buffs, that improve my combat skills or spells that complete our shortcomings.

Next plan is to get some useful feats like Clustered Shot[11], Weapon Focus[13]. After that maybe Shatter Defenses[15] + Dazzling Display[17], Steadfast Personality[15](Self Delusion [17]).

Sadly, we usualy don’t get a lot of money. So I write my item wish list….

-better enchants for composite longbow, -Pearl of Power to extend first(or higher) level slot, -Mithtil breastplate +2 or more, -Bracers of Archery, -Headband of Mental Superiority to save some item slots, -lot of scrolls to keep situational divine spells (for instance Endure Elements, Undetectable Alignment, Zone of Truth, etc…)

[My Questions]

My questions are mainly focused on my future 9 level. Books: Core, APG, UC, UM, ISWG

  • Is there any way to improve my combat skills more (attack rolls primarily) with my 9th level choices?
  • Which paladin spells should I prepare every day?

I have a separate question about what spells to take from Unsanctioned Knowledge: Unsanctioned Knowledge, best combat buffs for a paladin and small party?

Looking to run GSA and SEO tools on dedicated computer

Greetings, fellow SEO & GSA enthusiasts!
I have decided, as I am in the midst of upgrading most of my “processes” IRL, to get another computer, so SER and companion programs, can run 24/7 on a dedicated machine.
This will allow me to use a machine solely for photo editing, web browsing, FTPing to servers, writing articles, using Notepad++ to modify/create stuff, and whatever other work-related tasks I do.  Also playing YT videos. As it is, SER runs when I am not using the machine. I can go further if I had 24/7 use of the computer just for GSA.
Anyone have any suggestions? I know I can just get a VPS, also. Any pros/cons? Any suggestions as far as OS?  Is Win 10 best for SER, if I am going to setup a new machine? Currently running on Win7.
