Not correct. :) All you need is a skill rank in any Craft, Profession, or Perform skill.

There's also a 4-point Prestige "vanity" that lets you work as a temple healer and use Heal for Day Job checks.

Double-check with the DM at the end of the adventure if you achieved something, and other than that, it's basically the honor system.

You can do what I do and record your Objectives accomplished on your character sheet/profile.

You know you can freely play Mr. Potato Head with pretty much every aspect of your character up until your first adventure as a 2nd-level character, right? If you want to swap one of your skills out for a Day Job skill, you can do so (and even swap it right back once you get the Temple vanity, provided it's soon enough!). On the same note, be CERTAIN you're happy with your character's name before you hit the 10-post threshold; after that, you can't change it on here, a problematic and unfair limitation that I've started a petition in hopes of changing.

Oh, also: BIG WARNING for you, Tawner: I'm a Dhampir, which means that, while I'm not Undead, I react to positive/negative energy as though I were - so DON'T Channel to harm Undead while I'm nearby! I think your Rebuke Death ability works safely on me, though. Playing a Dhampir character requires a rare Boon, so kindly try to help me not die. The first adventure is always the riskiest. :)

The simple answer is no; there's a spell/subdomain/feat or something that lets one Channel to harm at the same time as they're Channeling to heal, but normally, a given Channeling wave has one effect or the other, not both.

Now to answer that question. Technically the Pathfinder RPG uses 'Game Master', the most common term for a role-playing game guide/judge. The title also ties in with their GameMastery™ line of products. I have run enough different role-playing games, and editions of games to qualify as a DM, GM, Storyteller, Keeper, Judge and Ghost Master, among other other titles. Typically, I use 'GM' as it is among the most descriptive, and recognizable titles and the one that is use in many of my favorite games, but you can use DM if you like. I'm a huge fan of the D&D Rules Cyclopedia rules set, and the old Mystara/Known World setting.

Presently, at the time of this writing, we are in the Pig's Paunch but the map doesn't show where we all are standing. I've been looking at other pbps (so that I learn what to do and don't slow us down) and they are able to state they are moving to "G5" or to stand beside someone. etc.

That's the intention with our map too, right? I mean, I understand at the beginning of our journey we're not necessarily being all tactical (although my character is seriously [if ignorantly] considering it).

Just curious is all.

You should be able to move yourself about, draw things, and even accidentally delete the map if you like, so long as you have google slides on your device. No letters needed. There might be times I ask you to illustrate your path which can be done with line (scribble function) as now illustrated. If I didn't make it sharable before it certainly is now.

Currently, Tawner doesn't have Read Magic as one of his orisons. Upon a successful spellcraft check (which he just failed), would he be able to read all three scrolls because they're identical? Or does he need to check each scroll individually?

I'd allow Tawner to read all three considering they all come from the same source.

You appear to have put Fomalhaut in the initiative cue, but not me.

Truth be told, I'd prefer Lydia and Fomalhaut always go together, since Fomalhaut literally can't leave Lydia's side.

Sidi's vehemence displayed with Fomalhaut might come out in the role play. I'd be interested too but we might need to give it a little time.

@ Lydia: Something he said (and a little bit extra).

Spoiler:
His claim, especially as a entity of negative energy, to have studied at Magaambya insulted the proud Bas'o who studied there to gain control of his own inner demon. The secrets of Magaambya allow the arcanists and bloodragers who study there to use Good-aligned divine magic and druidic magic as well as arcane. Demons and undead are anathema. So his claim to have studied there was like someone who didn't go to Harvard claiming to someone who did graduate from Harvard that they are Harvard alum. Basically, it was him calling bull.

The extra bit is that Fomalhaut reminds him of his own despair demon that he had to suppress through training into his atavistic avatar. Like a recovering alcoholic who encounters someone who drinks liberally.

They are jumping through the air (they can charge as a full-round jump action), so there's no terrain to speak of.

Typically you can get a 'hunch' as to what someone is thinking or feeling with a DC 15 sense motive check or an opposed check vs the target's bluff check if they are purposefully hiding something. The amount of time it takes to pull off such a check (1 round or 1 night of conversation and observation or anywhere in between) is dependant on the situation.

Spoiler:
Who's to say he didn't attend Magaambya when he was alive? Of course, he might have been booted out after a while for whatever reason (like Rataji "The Leader" from "Serpent's Rise"/"Serpent's Ire" was). It's also possible that he didn't, but that he's not technically lying; he IS ancient, but has come to be much less than he used to be in most respects, including his memory. Bear in mind that (I'm not sure if you got this) his introductory spiel was a direct takeoff on this, and I chose Magaambya because it's the oldest known school in Golarion. Maybe he's full of it. Maybe he's just old and confused. Maybe he's neither.

As for the second part, I had a feeling there was something like that going on there.

Con't from above...

Also, eidolons, phantoms and familiars are all perceptive and intelligent enough to make their own judgements about a situation and react accordingly. One can imagine a scenario wherein Fomalhaut, notices a danger to Lydia and react's before she does, shoving her down before a sniper fires or pushing her aside before a razor pendulum slices her in half.

Well I certainly wouldn't mind him doing those things - the main problem is, as I said, is that Fomalhaut has to be adjacent to Lydia at all times (unless she concentrates or it's dark), so it works better (certainly in this adventure) if they go together.

To clear up any possible misunderstanding: My answer above was not an argument for why you can't play Fomalhaut as you are; it was explaining why Sidi believes what he does, in answer to your direct question about it.

Since we are using block initiative for this game, it shouldn't matter, just take your actions whenever you are allowed, delaying when you need to. There will be times when they will not have to move to take actions or perhaps will just move around one another remaining adjacent. Alternatively, I could just set their combined initiative at the lowest roll between the two, but that seems to be disadvantageous to you.

GM, when in combat do you want us to post in intiative order to avoid confusion of placement or just whenever?

I use the "block initiative" system common to pbp games. PCs who are in bold on the initiative list may post in whatever order the happen to visit the messageboards. This cuts down on having to wait for any one player to show up to post their actions. The order is only important for those rare occasions when very specific timing is important.

Good point, Hallimir. It should be by initiative order. I saw that and thought it might be server error because Paizo has been going down lately.

EDIT: Fair enough, World's Most Interesting DM.

Apologies for making you explain that twice. I didnt quite get it when you mentioned it to Lydia... I thought block initiative refered to companions/familiars etc.

Thanks for clarifying

Yeah the Web goblins have been hampering me too. I should have something up later tonight.

Lydia, there is an interesting discussion about channeling* going on right now. There's talk about a Damphir too. Just thought it was interesting because it's right up our alley.

*I swear this is not a Rickroll!

Sorry for the delay, I'd hit a bit of snag Sunday night (food poisoning) which led to another snag Monday (ICU). I'm much better now after nearly suffering terminal dehydration, but don'the think I've forgotten your asignment to bring back notes for your mission...

You know it was mighty convent of me getting food poisoning just now. Mighty convenient.

Stay thirsty my friends (I know I will).

Whoa! Sounds like you failed your Fort save. Well, I hope the ICU rolled the 1d8 + 1 you needed. You sound like you're doing better so I hope that's all behind you. Welcome back.
