Reach + even more reach

Post by wingnut20x6 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 7:23 pm

Has there been a definitive ruling on how multiple reach options react with one another?

Found this floating around, does this look right to most people?

Was looking into how Reach weapon + Long Arms would work. Even more complicated when you then enlarge yourself. I understand the buffer around you in which you no longer can attack, and it's easy to add to figure out how far you can hit, but it's the in-between that has me confused.

That chart looks wrong in a couple ways.

For small/medium, it looks good.

As it notes, for fine, dimin, tiny; the rules don't really exist. So, the values it shows are reasonable GM rulings. A GM could also rule that the last column should be 5-10ft.

For Large (tall), it looks almost correct. The last column should be 20-25 as I read it. Large (long), the last column would be 10-15.

I haven't bothered reading the rest carefully. It looks like they are interpreting the application of longarms and reach as multiplicative. Paizo has made it clear that when you get multiple reach extensions, they add up, they don't multiple up. This is actually a variation on a general rule that is summed up as "x2 plus x2 equals x3".

Thanks I was mostly interested in medium and large (tall) anyway, as to how you would play such a character.
