Well, you can't say Phil didn't try. Can't wait to see how the level's in badass are justified in game. My guess is custom magic items made via the Master Craftsman feat or one similar that waives the annoying little "must be Caster to make nice things" requirement. That, and lots of ranks in Craft (Alchemy) and Craft (Weaponsmithing). If the Clima-Tact isn't a magic weapon (or at least a weaponizable wondrous item), well, I'd be very surprised.

Anyway, for story time, feel free to share your "Clever plan that backfires for the party/player implementing it for unforeseen reasons" story.

"If this counts..."

Mine is more of a "player who doesn't listen to a thing the DM says" story. See, I was running this one campaign where the rogue was a major hoarder, so everyone had gotten a little too used to relying on his seemingly endless collection of magic items. As DM, I felt I needed to teach them why this was a bad idea.
I made a dungeon where the whole damn castle was enchanted to nullify magic items. They were forced to rely on their own strength and cleverness to get through. I told them ahead of time that this would be the case, so they could try to plan something. I told them three times.
Enter our wizard, who's character had died of disease at the end of the last session. I was feeling nice, so I let him roll up a new character and introduce him to the party at the last bar before this dungeon. It was a warforged artificer.
Wade died in a puff of logic as soon as he entered the dungeon.

"Don't You Feel"

I feel if they just had no magic and it was all just things like stances and the like it would work a bit better because you get the question of, why is there no wizard using wish or something to break the system.
Though magic items could still be crafted, and devil fruits being the only magic thing besides haki

Now that I think about it, don't you have to have magic to use the alchemy skill?
*Goes to look it up*
Yep. "To make an item using Craft (Alchemy), you must have alchemical equipment and be a spellcaster." 3.5 PHB page 71 if you want to check yourself. I always hated that.

Yeah, I'm aware of the limitation in 3.5, but to be fair Pathfinder doesn't have that little limitation (it's also where the Master Craftsman feat is from) and I wouldn't be surprised at the group throwing in stuff from that system. Especially since Phil cast Mirror Image not too long ago. I think Ussop would very nicely be modeled by using the Alchemist class.

Oh, absolutely. I'm in a game right now and we have an alchemist who sits back and fires bombs from a crossbow. Basically Usopp.

Maybe we used houserules - I know some stuff was grandfathered in from 3.0 - but I thought there were a few alchemical items that didn't require a caster level to create.

I had a guy, but he was vetoed. He was a construct race, I forget which one, but he had two character sheets. One was a smooth talking bard, the other a barely literate barbarian. He had to switch between them by pressing the dominant/recessive programming switch located inside the protective switch conversion matrix in the abdomen.

The opening was between his legs, and he carried a broom handle to flip it, but he needed someone else to help.

This was intended to be my bargaining character, the first one I would trot out so my real character would look better by comparison. Lo and behold, the bardbarian assbot was the more popular choice, beating out my psionic woodchuck.

Bit of a meta example, though.

I know I might regret this, but how was the psionic woodchuck the less popular choice?

The DM figured out that it was going to be a sort of cross between Foamy and Bugs Bunny, with a little George Carlin thrown in. The DM preferred the bipolar assbot to what was essentially the mask as a perverted, foul mouthed furry.

In the words of the dub

Ussop Hammer! Ussop Hammer! Ussop Hammer! Rubber band of Doom!!! Ussop Hammer!

Eh, that's a decent translation, actually. Except "Rubber band of doom" was "Usopp Wagomu" (Usopp rubber band)

Rubber band of doom really does suit him later, though. He has a slingshot, and all the villains treat him like a joke, right up until he starts fighting.

True but he uses an actual rubber band on that guy after whaling on him with his hammer

At a later date, he proceeds to sell said rubber bands at something like five hundred bucks a piece. They're the most awesome rubber bands in the world, man.
