So because we have custom races, one of the races we have is the pixie: a tiny race. Tiny races are rare in Pathfinder and nonexistent as playable. As such, a lot of rules for them are different. For example, the feat Step Up paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/feats.html#step-up States that the player is placed adjacent to the enemy, but because tiny characters must enter an enemy's space to attack them (since tiny characters have a natural reach of 0), does that mean the enemy will always be outside their reach? Or is being in the enemy's space adjacent to the enemy?
The way i read it, and the way the rules are written, players are usually not allowed to enter another creature's space. Hence, the rules in step up saying adjacent because by the base rules, tiny creatures are not a playable race, and thus a non-issue in regards to this feat because npcs usually don't get player feats. Now, granted that to be playing a tiny character, your DM is already allowing something to change the rules a bit, you will have to work around the wordings of certain abilities and feats because tiny creatures do not follow the same rules that most creatures do. If it were my game, I would rule that step up allows a tiny character to remain within the square of their enemy so long as it falls within the rules of the feat, meaning the character cannot take more than a 5 foot step. My reasoning behind this is the feat's purpose is to keep you within reach of the target. For most creatures, being adjacent is still within threat range, but this is not true for tiny creatures since they have a natural reach of 0. Thus, since the intent of the feat is to keep an enemy within reach, I see that a tiny creature should be able to remain within the square of the defender so long as they move within the restrictions of the feat.
Dingmamon: the sanctuary would help if the group tried to just murder hobo them from the start, or if they ran away, but if you describe them how you did, i don't think they'd just attack for no reason

shogungari: oh hey, we got a new guy
Jan 19, 2016 16:33:14 GMT
Dingmamon: yeah, i got the notification earlier. haven't heard anything from him yet
Jan 19, 2016 18:22:28 GMT
shogungari: I just posted another ad on Reddit so hopefully we can get another game set up soon
Jan 19, 2016 18:26:41 GMT
shogungari: you thinking of restarting tempest statum for the new players? I could even remake with a normal character

Doublewhip: Saw your Reddit ad. Don't forget to reach out to and affiliate with other similar forums!
Jan 20, 2016 1:29:36 GMT
Dingmamon: thanks Doublewhip, we'll keep an eye out for some similar forums.

Dingmamon: and possibly gary, though at this point i am having a hard time coming up with campaign ideas.

shogungari: Really? I have a few if you wanted to borrow them

Guest: This place still active?
Apr 13, 2016 7:01:34 GMT
Dingmamon: not really. the guy who started it is in the military now, and those of us that did stick around had life stuff come up
Apr 13, 2016 20:12:19 GMT
shogungari: Hey Ding, I see you still come here. Any incentive to revive this place?
Jun 29, 2016 23:20:30 GMT
Dingmamon: I would love to, but really the only time I have to actually check it is when i'm at work. If you want to revive it by advertising and stuff, I will do what I can to keep it up and running smoothly for you, but I probably wouldn't be able to actively
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:23 GMT
Dingmamon: participate in any games
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:33 GMT
Dingmamon: By all means if you want to set something up and run it, go for it. I still have Admin access since Zekey left it to me when he joined the Navy, and from conversations with him, he probably isn't coming back

Dingmamon: Alternatively, if you wanted to set your own one of these up, you would have the ability to shape it and tailor it to what you wanted a bit more, and I'd be willing to help keep things organized on it so you can focus on people and games

shogungari: Nope, just seeing if you had something planned.
