Just as a note (not to belittle your accomplishment, this sounds pretty neat), if you were all level 7 in a 5-9 scenario, you were then probably playing in the 5-6 subtier, which is probably quite doable for all level 7's since you are all above the average target party level.

The next subtier is 8-9, which would have probably been a much more greater challenge.

I'm sure this is my most favorite Gencon to date! It was amazing, to say the least. Not a single mediocre, let alone bad, experience in the PFS room this year; every single table was amazing.

GMing for Jiggy, RainyDayninja, Silbeg and friends for Legacy of the Stonelords. Quite an excellent table and group of individuals. My only regrets is that the scenario had little chance to roleplay.

Not having my voice destroyed by Monday! Wheeee.

One of the few tables I got to play, my Bonekeep 3 table with Kyle Baird, Auke, Dan, Derek and Tim. We had been waiting a whole year for this, to do BK3 with the same characters. We are truly sad that there will not be a Bonekeep 4, but this was still an amazing capstone. Thanks to our GM for putting up with all our shenanigans.

Noodle & Company downstairs. Best 4 days of gaming deserved 5 trips to this fantabulous establishment of deliciousness.

Scotty's on Wednesday is always a blast and this year was no exception. Thanks again to Mark for putting it together, and it ran SMOOTH. Thanks to all the players that sat with me and my GM! It was a blast! WPWA (would pathfind with again)

NOT winning a charity auction boon this year. Money money to be had for the dealer hall \o/

Meeting more Paizo employees than previous years. Getting my ACG signed by a lot of them.

Some of my Weapon in the Rift tables didnt make, but every single table that did make was a freaking blast. Thanks to all my players for some awesome times. Still disappointed in some of you (you know who you are) for not encouraging your grappler to attempt to grapple the BBEG. Fun-sponges.

VO dinner/get together at Rock Bottom. Nice beer, good company. Getting to know Andrew Christian and wife. Getting a pick-up table together with some fantabulous people. Getting to meet Netopalis in that game. Playing and demolishing Vengeance at Sundered Crag in "record time" while kinda tipsy.

To my knowledge, the "robot" subtype is a subtype of construct, which uses Knowledge Arcana. Going through the robot subtype notes now... doesn't say anything that would make it different.

Actually, the PFSRD has it already although from Inner Sea Bestiary.

Also, this is not a PFS specific questions so probably best served over at the rules forum.

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

Actually, the only faction symbol I didnt like was Freedom' Edge. Looks like MS Paint

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

There was probably also some power creep reasons. Due to the Heritages from the "Blood of Angels/Fiends" books, it was too easy to get a Aasimar and Tiefling with the perfect stat array for almost any class you wanted to play.

Arcanist is listed as having their item crafting bonus feat as listed as not legal for play. I obviously don't have a copy of the book yet but is there meant to be something that replaces that feat, or do they have a choice of other feats that they can take?

It's an exploit they can take. You just can't take that exploit in PFS.

No offense guys, but what happened to the Liberty's Edge faction logo? Someone had to do it in MS paint?

Quick question going over this one.

For the final encounter, the 4-player adjustment asks to reduce the AC of a monster in BOTH subtiers to 15. This is a -2 adjustment in the low subtier, but a -6 adjustment in high tier (due to it having an Advanced Template already)... Is this as intended? I figured editing missed the big discrepancy with the advanced template, so wanted to check.

Or should we say AC should be 2 lower instead of flat 15?

Thanks I have 30k and wasn't sure what to buy then I thought +1 wis (and 12th level bump) would be good for eyes of the ten. I've got 61 Fame so no problem there (I could buy a +2 if I could afford it!) I had considered increasing my +2 belt of str to a +4 belt of physical STR+Con but I'd guess that the bonus 4th level spell (+8 wisdom) increased save DC's and +1 will saves probably trumps that since I'm always flying as a celestial thrush.

I snagged a Luckblade with 0 wishes in it. I love un-slotted bonuses.

I'll take that as a compliment! ^_^

Honestly, something like this in "The Paths we Choose" or included in the first 3 season 6 adventures would be neat. Page count allowing of course.

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

John has mentioned that if they are unreleased scenarios (season 6 for example) they are shooting for them to be added about a week before gencon at the latest.

Scenarios already released should already be in your downloads. If you are missing them, your paizo account email may be different from what Mike Brock has for you.

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

Native outsiders have a stipulation that raise dead works normally for them. This is in the core rules, not PFS specific.

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

o/ My pleasure Walter! Hopefully these will be useful for GenCon GMs like me. Hopefully we get new logos by then!

This is something I did when Season 5 came out, as easy handouts to give to those players who are not always reading forums and 100% on top of what happens in PFS, as well as new or infrequent players.

GMs, check them out here:

Link to handouts - PFS Prep
Link to handouts - Dropbox direct link

I will update them with the new faction logos when released if they fall under the community use policy as well.

I was the proud winner of the Aspis Agent boon, and it was right around ~200

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

More tables of 5-99 have been added.

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

For new players who weren't there last year, Paizo had a few spacial one-of boons at Gencon where all proceeds of the auction would go to charity.

Last year, they had boons for:


Assassin (change evil to non-good)
Aspis Agent

Black Powder Archetypes Unlocks (currently banned gun-using archetypes)

Wayfinder of the Swords
Wayfinder of the Spells
Wayfinder of the Scrolls

Physical Items:
Collector's Ed. Core Rulebook (Or was it a Bestiary?)

Anyone remember any more?

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

Some edits were submitted to DCon events manager. keep an eye out for new tables.

Hey all. We are looking into scenarios that are already sold out. There may be adjustments coming.

I have a level 15 Paladin that has had and used Ultimate Mercy quite a lot already.

Like you said, assuming you have access to the corpse and there is no other time pressure, you should be able to bring back 1 person per day (unless you somehow have 20+ uses of LOH a day!).

Just remember, the target of the Ultimate Mercy will STILL have 2 negative levels they have to remove on their own.

"Alright, my character will use his Ultimate Mercy (assuming its possible to use 'raise dead') on anyone who dies in the group, provided that you all agree to chip in 1,000 gp a piece for a Raise Dead for my character, should it be necessary and possible."

Hm, that seems kinda against the idea of self-sacrifice for a Paladin to me. Are you saying you'd have a Lawful Good Paladin refuse to heal/bring back someone, even though it would cost him/her nothing?

I do have a question however, will we see new Pre-Gens come out that mixes in the new races and the new advanced classes come out any time in the near future?

Pregens have always been the iconics. The new ACG classes also have their own iconics, but they are all the core races. So if ACG pregens come to exist, I would expect them to follow suit and use those iconic's races as they are.

I moved a table over, as I double-booked myself with some of my own Gencon games!

Well, Carlos, there ARE other tables that could use the services of your most excellent GM talents!

No pressure, just stating a fact. :-D

I'll think about it as we get closer to the date. Already running plenty of slots at gencon proper, so like I'm sure many others I'm looking for a chance to play too.

But I will never let a table NOT make because they lack a GM. I'll keep an eye out and switch if needed.

Ugh! Now I'm conflicted... We could have a table of all 5-stars if I jumped over to Vengeance at Sundered Crag with Steve Miller, Greg Hurst, and Tracy Windeknecht... Though that would mean the GM would definitely have to bring his A game...
There is no GM yet. Maybe Carlos would run it? :-D

I went to do this and looks like a GM was found. So I decided if it was going to be a 5-star table, I should join it as a player, DUH!!!

Let's bring the pain!

Chessex makes d8's with 1,2,3,4 twice each and those are my favorites. Easy to differentiate from regular D8s because they round the points a bit more.

roman d12s are my next fave, but still far behind my #1 choice.

The omission of citing 4th-level pregenerated character is intentional. There are four new characters to show off. Having 14 higher-level options available overshadows these four characters, especially with a table of six players, which can as much as double the number of character levels kn play (from 12 to 24). This a decision we considered for quite a while before settling on this particular approach.


Do I read this as 4th level pregens are discouraged but still rules legal? Or do I read this - they are not rules legal?

4th level "classic" PFS pregens are not allowed by the document. Players 5-6 should double.

(actually, nothing says all 6 players couldn't play the Warpriest)

I dunno... there also MAY be some flavor issues for some characters to carrying wayfinders at all...

I also believe that we actually have a lot of more potential 12+ play ready to go as new content is released (NOT APs!). Ever since Wardens of the Reborn Forge was launched, we have at least 1 GM and group of players basically just waiting for it to be sanctioned to play.

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

Here is my quick counts of Atlanta Region:

  • Eyes of the Ten (all four scenarios): 6 tables (all 6-man tables to my knowledge)
  • The Ruby Phoenix Tournament (10-12): 3+ tables
  • Race for the Runecarved Key (12+): 4 tables
  • Siege of the Diamond City (12-13)(14-15): 4 tables
  • Academy of Secrets (12-14): 5 tables
  • Tomb of the Iron Medusa (13-15): 4 tables
  • The Moonscar (15-17): 2 tables

Atlanta does have quite a large amount of players that play PFS AND homegames, so we tend not to schedule AP parts in "PFS mode" at all. For example, I myself am GMing and about to finish (end of book 6) Shattered Star in campaign mode, and all my players are PFS players as well taking credit.

Looks like although we have less amount of people going through Eyes of the Ten, because we do them in full 6-man tables most people bond together and continue on to do Academy, Tomb and the rest. We also do NOT offer Eyes at any of our regional cons (on purpose). Same for 12+ modules. Only 12+ content offered in Georgia cons is muti-table specials.

We also have 2 (or more!) 6-man groups getting VERY close to needing EOTT as well.

On reflection, though - there may be other ways to solve the issue that I'm seeing...

Also, remember that keeping or axing may not be the only options for factions. Maybe a faction gets a new faction head instead, that starts to shift a faction away from their current goal and mindset. Maybe we get someone more liberal as head of Cheliax. I mean, I didnt dig Taldor before Lady Gloriana as much as I do now.

sooo, is it just me or I can't find a section that lists recommended character levels for each level of the spire?

Hey all,

So as stupid as this sounds, I was out on vacation for a week, three weeks ago, and literally forgot about this for the past few weeks after getting back. This got me thinking, and honestly with all I have going on right now it's probably for the best that I bow out as GM for this campaign.

My wife recently finished her nursing degree, and we are in a whirlwind tour of finding her a job which may or may not be in our local area. So lots of things going on, and some extracurricular activities have to be cut. I've already cut my f2f PFS games quite a lot for the same reason.

I am very, very sorry for the silence these past weeks.

I had some great times, from playing for a bit to having to step up and run it. I learned a ton about PBF, and I did have a great time when I was able to keep up the pace. To Dris and Kaeso especially, thanks for staying strong with me. To Ionnia and Doug, sorry we didn't get to play longer.

Hopefully the time we had together was fun, and I do not see it as "wasted time" at all. I had some great laughs, and hopefully provided some entertainment, which was what this is all about.

If a GM is found and wants to take over, please be my guest.

Thanks again,
aka GM Nel

I actually skipped cloak of resistance with my paladin, as he has very high charisma. Gave me the option of a utility cloak, which is quite rare in Pathfinder where EVERYONE just buys cloaks of resistance and is honestly quite boring. I ended up with a cape of the mountebank.

Also, look at the Paladin specific bracers:

bracers of the avenging knight - attack heavy paladin (UE)
silver smite bracelet - attack heavy paladin (APG)
bracers of the merciful knight - support paladin (UE)

Stand-alone promotes playing the whole thing with different PCs, rather than running a single PC through it. It also allows playing it "out of order", if indeed there is an order to it.

Which is how PFS scenarios work anyway, and I think that for a lot of people that play PFS that is what they want.

I'm going to take a wild guess that you can split people that play PFS into two main groups:
A) Players who can't/don't want to play in home campaigns so they play PFS instead
B) Players who play PFS in addition to home games with regular groups

The thing right now is that campaign mode helps a lot of players in group B, but end up hurting players in group A because usually there aren't enough players in group A by themselves that can make tables for a campaign mode run.

When a module doesn't have campaign mode, both groups A and B want to and get to play it. We fill tables, and game days make. We have been clamoring for more content (i.e. more than 2 scenarios a month) for quite some time. Older players (myself included) ARE running out of scenarios to play, even more now than older scenarios are not being run because of the advantage of reporting fresh scenarios. Yes, this is a very small percent of players, but they are there, and they tend to be highly loyal.

This is a great chance to get an influx of 16 new pieces of content in one swoop. That's like 2/3 of a season right there, bonus, for the low low cost of writing up the chronicles.
