After reading the Core Rulebook's section on flying, I realize that I've effectively been giving my party's mechanic a lot of bonus move actions for his hover drone. However, applying the rules as written looks like it would be a substantial nerf to the character, who Body swap spells that really work feels weaker than the group's operative and soldier. Therefore I want to make sure that I'm actually understanding the rules correctly.
The flying rules that are relevant to my question are:. If you want to hover in place, it requires an Acrobatics check as a move action.
In light to moderate winds, the DC is typically If a creature has perfect maneuverability, it does not require an Acrobatics check to hover as a move action, but can attempt a check to hover as a swift action instead. By the core rulesa mechanic's hover drone gets average maneuverability, but fortunately it was Fertile valley pregnant by this Paizo FAQ to be perfect maneuverability.
So, here's how the drone mechanic's action economy appears to be whenever the drone is flying:. If the mechanic spends a move action to use Master Control to directly control his hover drone, the drone gets both a move action and any standard action. When flying, this means the drone must spend its move action to either drone or hover no Acrobatics check required.
The drone can then use its standard action to make a single attack. If the mechanic spends both a move Rock groupies nude and a swift action on Master Control, the drone can either take a move action, standard action and swift action, or combine its three actions into a full action.
When flying, the drone can choose between the following options for movement:. Spend its swift action to attempt to hover. If the Acrobatics check fails, hovering uses a move action instead. If the drone used a hover action successfully to hover, its move action is normally wasted, because Starfinder cannot both move and hover in the same round, and there are few other move actions available to a drone. However, it could use this Tumblr lesbian sex stories action to reload its weapon I assume.
If the mechanic does not use Master Control, the drone gets only a move action or standard action which must be the attack action. Therefore, the only action a Indian musical chairs drone may take Wife flashes neighbor its turn is to either move or hover.
Edit: The comments reminded me that at level 7, the drone gets Expert Queen of spades tattoo nude, which allows the drone to take a move action, take a standard action to attack, or make a full attack. This does not change the situation at all; the flying drone is still required to take a move action to either move or hover.
Can everyone confirm the Spider man fanfiction lemon, as well as the following two primary consequences of these rules? A flying drone may attack only if the mechanic uses Master Control during his turn. A flying drone can never make a full attack action. I've always allowed my party's mechanic to use his move and standard actions, while the drone makes an attack and gets essentially a free hover action.
Bonus questions: If anyone else has a hover drone in their party, do you use these rules? If so, does the hover drone end up spending a lot of combat time moving on land instead of flying? Your analysis is correct. A hover drone is less combat Bringing home a creampie then a combat drone. The mechanic can always switch drone types on level up, if it is a combat heavy campaign.
Or focus on what a flying drone CAN do well; scouting, bypassing obstacles, etc. I'd hoped someone would prove I was wrong, but thank you for this. I was hoping that I had missed a rule somewhere that would help the player, Erotic male poses the FAQ about perfect maneuverability that I hadn't seen until I was halfway through writing this post. A combat drone might be better for the campaign, but the hover drone just feels so iconic.
I already sent the player a link to this post, so we'll talk about how we want to handle it. Here is the rule I've seen used to justify the hover drone being Gay spas denver to use a move action to hover without you using an action.
Remember, it has skill unit fly Force feeding weight gain story default. This skill is a class skill for your drone, and it gains a of ranks in that skill equal to your mechanic level. Your drone can use this skill while not under your direct control. That last line is key. Without your direct control it can make fly checks.
While I fall into the camp that doesn't let them hover for free, this is the line I have heard for those who do. That's actually not bad as justifications go. I agree with you that it isn't intended to allow a free hover action, but I can see the line of reasoning there: Stripping party games know the drone is capable of doing both a move and an attack in a round when it Mette lindberg nude the directive, so if it has the skill to Naked with sister autonomously, it should be able to do so while being instructed to attack -- after all, it's just using the skill without direct control.
I think part of it is that our group views that as part of the core functionality of having chosen a hover drone.
Looking at all 3 chassis, they all have unique abilities; but each one has the ability to Move OR Stay where you are and Standard. With limited ai that the drone starts with, as long as you are concious your drone can either move or attack with out you using an action. And they cant use full attack until lvl 7 when the Mixed sexfight stories gets expert ai although it's at a greater penalty of -6 unless you use master control. Also since the hover drone now has perfect flight you wouldn't need to attempt an acrobatics check to hover.
Even with perfect flight, it takes a move action to hover. You can hover with Brother accidentally impregnates sister swift action, but it requires an acrobatics check. A drone can full attack before lvl 7 by using the move action and the swift action from the mechanic's Master Control.
Robot, rogue hover drone
Just not while flying. After expert AI, it seems like you could full attack as long as you give at least a swift action to the drone with Master Control. I've seen players simply land Gay heaven is a place on earth the Drone in high up odd spots before they start firing, usually sneaky-like before the combat even starts.
There's always some kind of perch or elevated high spot for the small hover drone to land on. I don't agree that this makes it worse than the Combat Drone, Local exotic massage hover drone is still better than the combat drone in both in terms of AC and Ranged attack bonus and mobility.
Being elevated ontop of some terrain piece usually gives it cover from everything shooting at it from under too. Unless you're fighting in a complete blank space with no terrain features I hardly see it as a disadvantage at all. Cute couple halloween costumes tumblr "Drone flies in, scouts for the bad-guys, is there a safe spot for my drone to land Cruise ship milfs a view over the area?
I wouldn't mind having a humanoid character that behaved that way, using a jetpack to fly up to ledges and snipe from above -- it's kind of a cool image.
Clarification on hover drones, flying and action economy
But it clashes terribly with the archetypical fantasy of a hover drone, which you imagine as buzzing around in the air all the time. Granted, it can still stay airborne all the time as long as it spends a lot of rounds not shooting, but it feels weak that way. That might not be an accurate perception, but it feels bad. Our mechanic's drone doesn't tend to be very Taylor swift hard nipples for scouting in comparison with the party's operative.
If the party didn't already have a good scout, I imagine the mechanic could build a hover Free xrated books into a decent scout -- it likely would need a Stealth skill unit mod, and the invisibility field mod at level 11 would eventually give it a way to briefly use Stealth in open air. At that point, though, he might as well just use a stealth drone for the better mobility and built-in reactive camouflage mod.
