No, killing all the PCs with an NPC 12 levels too high for them is something you should save for truly momentous acts of darwin award baiting, not a moment of desperation. If she can feel all nasty and evil she can probably also feel her kidneys going back into place. I would have had her feign unconciousness until she could figure out what was going on, or at least give them a diplomacy check for a quick "sorry! only healing i had.. evil dragon trying to kill us! Please tell me you're a high level adventurer or something!"
it looks like whatever you want it to look like, so just draw a bigger rune on your character sheet.
In a word, Meh.
The change hasn't come with any mechanical changes yet, and not an awful lot of thematic changes for me. Maybe because I came in at season 3 when the national warring was already taking a back seat, but my characters have been tied more to the theme of the factions than a particular nation. Corvus has been vocally Liberty's edge for almost 3 years now...
The grand lodge theme of "explore the mawangi expanse" doesn't really hit home until there's a grand lodge vanity that actually helps you do that.
Shadow lodge for life!
I guess, at the end of the day, I just don't see the difference between being able to do what I listed a few posts up, and upgrading a +1 Longsword into a +2 Vorpal Longsword (both of which are listed in that same section of the 'Adding New Abilities' Section), which is allowed in PFS.
The difference is that the custom magic item section of the book is a guideline, and it is spelled out as such. It is very, VERY breakable and it knows that, and says it explicitly. The limiting factor on it is the DM who can look at an item and tell whether or not this thing is broken , not the rules themselves. Without it, you wind up with things like use activated true striking swords
Mike brock doesn't have time to banhammer ever single loopholed, munchkined item 100,000 rules lawyers can come up with, so the process isn't allowed.
Well, assuming they think they've failed your right. There's a few characters where i'd say "No, you know what I think I'm good with a 2 on the die."
Every dm is going to do this slightly differently. Generally you want the other players permission before you do anything to their character, they should get the hint of what you're doing after a good reroll or two.
And once again, everything is Israel's fault and Hamas can do no wrong. My bad. Much better to spend your efforts making tunnels that will get your people killed than to spend those same efforts saving your peoples lives because, obviously, if you can't make everything perfect for anyone you shouldn't try and make anything better for anyone.
Hamas can do no thing would just about cover it.
Just whatever you did to get your field commission bypassed training. Because of that they wanted to give you at least one test before they wasted a wayfinder on you and sent you out on the confirmation.
The scrolls, spells, swords groupings have no mechanical weight to them at this point beyond the DM star chronicle as far as i know. I don't know if they were the original idea for factions or what, but they don't really do anything.
Any chance on some clarifications on what exactly changes with the factions?
Presumably if your faction only changed name there's no change.
Do the scarzini use the faction retirement rules?
What happens if you go from one faction to another? Can you bail on
What happens to all of those "The risen" who can't change factions? Presumably they're automatically shunted into the scarab sages but has cutting ties with osirion let them break free after this?
He's in the upper 75th percentile already!
The as you level bonus stacks, but both of the abilities are use wisdom bonus for the large chunk of the boost, which is double dipping.
This is like saying that homeless guy should have bought a house instead of that soda.

Golarion IS a world where slavery is seen as LN, because there are different forms of slavery from the horrifically evil chattle slavery to greek style slavery light which amounts to being a person with no ability to quit but really expensive job security.
The society deals with these people (hell, the society IS some of those people) because as a band of adventurer archeologists they don't care. Its not their job to change the world its their job to study it, catalog it, and disseminate that knowledge to a select few.
They are not the good guys. They are not the harpers. They are not the knights of the round table. On a good day they're indiana jones. On a bad day....
They still manage to be the good guys because of how grimy. scuzy, and gritty the rest of golarion is. Its part of the flavor of the world: its supposed to stick in your teeth on the way down. Its dirt flavored to remind you WHY your character is a hero in the first place: to fight to make the world suck just a little bit less.
not having missions where the pcs are expected to deal with slavers any better than whatever random demon pops up.
Part of what adds depth to a character is drama. Drama stems from internal conflict. As a paladin Ollystria is sworn to both respect authority and be a champion of good. Situations where those are completely at odds are a chance to explore that dichotomy. That character has decided that the best she can do given the two extremes is to have the PCs buy the slaves in question: No laws are broken, the civil order remains intact, and the people are free.
If you want to stab the slavers in the face with a dull spoon, the edge of liberty is right around the corner and now that cheliax isn't a faction will probably be kicking the slaver body count into high gear.
perhaps clarifying their stance on whether they consider slavery to be LN or LE in the game world. slavers can still be in the world, but the society doesn't necessarily have to make deals with them.
By all means, If you were at my table and wanted to take the andoran solution that would definitely be an option.
Nor can you simply take the police at their word. (particularly after you watch them lie) If you see them using the same lie over and over your anecdotal evidence becomes a better source of information that official reports.

Is the change considered a "condition" that has to be cured or make your character unplayable? If you are hit by a polymorph and become a squirrel, you have to fix that. I'm not making a statement regarding the morality or sociological/psychological impact of a sex change, just evaluating it strictly from a mechanical/rules standpoint.
No. A previous post (i can look it up if you don't believe me) said you could freely change your gender even without this item, so I don't see how using this item to do something you could previously do for free would count as a condition to be cleared.
Or in other words, it matters about as much as hair color.
Veterans vault spoilers:
The last fight has darkness AND caltdrops both making you move at half speed. With those in effect you move at 1/4 speed, so you move and.. you're done. For multiple terms. Its very boring/frustrating. You need to have an ioun torch or an oil of daylight to get rid of it, and thats a lot of cash for the low tier.
Fortress has one very hard encounter, the variation is probably whether you overcame it or it just killed you.
Veterans vault has a nasty low tier fight that you really can't do anything about unless you brought some rather specific equipment at low tier.
Glories of the past I had a nasty fight and used the same annoying mechanic in 2 fights.
Rivalries end definitely deserves to be there.
1) Ha! you were stupid for ever picking your faction
2) Completely out of character actions with no apparent purpose other than kicking the dog
3) no actual conclusion or resolution: that plot-line is still out there.
4) The conflict between the shadow lodgers and the ten is solved... in the last paragraph with a handwave without the ten changing behavior.

Feeling better about those love letters not being answered now? :)
I think its perfect. The penache point/swift action is an actual cost for a swashy, and needing to hold it in your other hand is a real downside for anyone else. (Rules not quoted about flair: it works once per day under its own power. The scarf is so swishy it has its OWN penache point)
To clarify, is this special able to be run as a normal scenario now? or only at >15 table conventions?
Normal Ok all. After discussing it at the meeting today, the team has decided this scenario is just too important to the fundamentals of the Society for anyone to miss. So, it will be available for open play with no minimum table requirements. Enjoy!-Mike Brock
Well, the last time african americans tried to do something like this en masse, White folks firebombed it from world war I warplanes
Learning about things like this significantly shortened my ideas of "how much time have they had to recover from slavery and why haven't they"
Swordsmasters flare: Blue scarf Blue Scarf: The user can spend 1 panache point as a swift

There are many forms of disrespect towards authority that don't seem to be a problem according to you. You seem to judge the ability to disrespect the government based on whether they agree with your views or not, and it doesn't work that way.
As to defending protestors, yes, I believe they have a right to get in the street and say that they're angry. The constitution guarantees them that right. That right is not only limited to people that you agree with, that's the entire point of it.
The hunters lodge works however you want it to. You can say that you're a member of the Trophy Wall consortium that owns a giant sprawling vacation villia in mawangi and you arrange tours out of there or you can be one person standing on an absolom street corner holding a sign that says "will guide you to big game for food"

Many of the people in that neighborhood feel differently, in no small part because the cops tend to treat everyone like they've robbed a store. They get harrased if they're in the "wrong" neighborhood. They get stopped if they're out past a certain hour.
That would be me feeling protected by the police.
The locals are more afraid they'll next than of each other.
If he really did those things is still yet to be determined but that isn't determined by a riot or discussions on how much damage an unarmed man can do. Hopefully it is determined by a fair court.
What are the chances that this would be in court without the demonstrations?
What are the chances that IF this made it to court, it would get a fair hearing and not swept under the rug from the District attorney who's cop father was killed by a black criminal?
