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.
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.
It's an exploit they can take. You just can't take that exploit in PFS.
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.
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.
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:
I will update them with the new faction logos when released if they fall under the community use policy as well.
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:
Anyone remember any more?
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'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.

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!

Mike mentions it above, but ALL characters will benefit from a free faction change when season 6 gets here, if they want it.
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)
Here is my quick counts of Atlanta Region:
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.
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.
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)
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:
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.
