Ohhh **** that's my bad, I read that as a 10% discount rather than straight up being 10% of the original cost. Sorry about that.

You read it correctly. I mistakenly wrote 10% discount in that post, although in the advert rules it stated correctly that they were 10% of the price or 90% discount. I caught my error after I posted and edited but you were too quick.

Hey Leo. Working on an initial character concept, feeling like I want to bring a first Nations warrior from the Illinois Tribe to bring some representation to the threads, lol.

What I am eying up is the Painted Savage (really spheres? Savage?) Archetype.

As written, nothing wrong with this class until level 4, then things get iffy. It reaches into Enhancement Spheres, while not actually using magic. Is this legal for your game as a supernatural "Spirit Animal" effect, or should I aim for another approach.

Also, buying equipment:

Are there mundane, purchasable equivalents to magical gear, for modern time?

Painted Savage, by dipping into the Enhancement Spheres, falls too deep into the realm of the supernatural, I'm afraid.

As mundane magical gear, no. Nothing you couldn't order from Amazon, pick up at Walmart or any other specialty store irl.

I said no to mundane versions of magical items though I suppose that is not entirely true. The Tech Sphere does offer quite a few options that can replicate some aspects of magical items, such as exo-skeletal muscles which can provide enhancement bonuses though there are many others.

I need to go over the Tech Sphere carefully to see if I need to ban anything. The super high tech stuff like laser guns or plasma rifles etc will be banned for sure, however.

I have completed the list of banned talents in the Spheres of Power/Might section of the advert. Note that I have banned all Legendary Talents. Other talents I banned because they felt somewhat too supernatural for this game.

Thought - Is the zombie apocalypse some kind of virusy thing or does it have any supernatural element.

Basically trying to understand if priests, churches, symbols of god etc. have any effect on the creatures.

Origin is unknown. No holy artifacts, incantations or prayers have been shown to work though it may or may not have been tested rigorously. That said, no real clerical abilities are allowed.

Ooh, pathfinder zombies. Sounds like fun.

Got a question. Considering the sheer overwhelming monopoly of undead in the setting I'm assuming any form of Favored Enemy (Undead) would be out of the question, yes? Not entirely sure I'll end up including it in the build even if it's allowed, but it feels like the kind of thing the shitty teen I'm brainstorming would have. The kind whose dad tried to teach them to hunt as a bonding thing, they got way into it almost exclusively on the grounds of only partially ironic 'this will make me a god in the apocalypse', and the first time they saw a zombie their life finally made sense.

Favored Enemies are not banned. There are plenty of possible in-game explanations that could make such a thing plausible.

I am going to step away. I am in a bunch of games and with the summer incoming I need to keep myself from getting backed up. Good luck all... this game is going to a great read.
