Congratulations Carl!

For note - we're still looking for a few GMs and HQ personnel (ideally people who are comfortable running We Be Goblins!, Silverhex Chronicles, and/or Adventure Card Guild demos) for all three days - GM boons are your reward! Drop me a line if you're interested!

For the non-PFS games do you have to use a PFS character or can you make one of the appropriate level for the scenario?

Those games will be using PFS Level 7 Pre-generated characters (with a few tweaks allowed - namely a small purchasing limit and prepared casters being allowed to edit their memorized spells)

Announcing The Convention at Stonekeep 2015 - May 15-17 in Bloomington Indiana!

Most local-level conventions, you'll find, offer a nice variety of fun (and sometimes easy) scenarios. Not this time! Stonekeep is going to be a, well, stone-grinder of a con! With special permission from Mike Brock - we'll have Bonekeep parts 1, 2, *and* 3! We'll also be offering every scenario that has a "Hard Mode" option and a selection of other scenarios that will truly test your mettle as Pathfinders!

(Don't worry, we'll also have a few gentle offerings - I promise!)

Bonekeep <=> Stonekeep, right? Well, sort of. In addition to normal PFS convention activities, this event is going to be a little special for us here in Bloomington. There is a local facility called Stonebelt - an assisted living facility for persons with physical and developmental disabilities. Several members of our lodge are current or former employees of theirs, and we know that there are several pieces of equipment that they are in need of - a perfect invitation for us to step up and give back to our local community!

Several of our lodge's GMs have been cooking up an integrated ACG-RPG Charity scenario where the success of the ACG players will contribute directly to some of the challenges the RPG players will have to face the next day! These scenarios are non-PFS, but will be played with PFS and PACG rules, and come with *significant* prizes for the winning table (ACG and RPG both)! Look for a separate announcement about "bidding" for a seat at these tables soon!

In addition, we'll also have some rare items and services up for auction, with all proceeds from the auctions and charity tables going towards the purchase of needed equipment for Stonebelt.

As if that wasn't enough, we'll be running the Season 4 Special Scenario - Race for the Runecarved Key and will have Adventure Card Guild demos going all weekend long!

So, mark your calendars for May 15-17th - dare ye brave the dangers of Bonekeep AND Stonekeep?

-----

Look for a Warhorn to go live on or around April 1st, 2015

Huge thanks to three local businesses who are offering their support for this effort:

- Common Room Games
- That's The Rub Massage Therapy Center
- Mr. Copy

As a geophysicist, I get a lot of things coming through my email that are of little interest to anyone outside a few specific fields. Sometimes, however, I get something that everyone can relate to, and even more rarely, something that has the potential to be really awesome for PFS and Pathfinder as a whole!

(Name the features on Pluto and its moon Charon - the public news story related to this train of thought.)

NASA's New Horizons probe is approaching Pluto and Charon, and NASA has a public campaign to name the features of these bodies. As I looked, I saw items from Tolkien, Pratchett, and other fictional worlds had been nominated. As such, I thought to myself, "wouldn't be awesome if Absalom or Pharasma or Skyreach became actual places on another (dwarf) planet!" and so, I bring this to you:

Nominate a Name! - If we all come together as Pathfinder players and GMs and suggest names from Golarion...who knows! Maybe we'll actually play a role in naming a mountain or crater or other feature on another world!

/science geeking, and back to your regularly scheduled fantasy RPG geeking :)

Silver Crusade ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Indiana—Bloomington aka CanisDirus

I'm not sure if you can put in player/character names without numbers (never actually tried that myself), but you *can* report a session with a GM and no players. It's how we report GM 101 sessions as well as how Overseer GMs for Season Specials get credit :)

Heya! Bart has you covered for the most part (no comment on any rumors he may be spreading about me though...even if they are true ;)

Even though I myself used to hate using Facebook, it's the best way for us to reach most of our local players en masse, so it's our main place for contact, information, and schedules:

Pathfinder Society of Bloomington, IN.

I'll be at Common Room Games tomorrow (Saturday, March 14) at Noon to help another player get a character rebuilt, and then I'm GMing a table from 1-5pm. Common Room closes at 6pm on Saturdays, but I can easily hang around after game too if you need help with any information. I think we might even have a few spots left in our Monday tables for this week too, if you feel like diving right in!

If Facebook doesn't work for you, feel free to send me (or Bart) a private message on here, or mbramnik@gmail.com. Take care and hope to talk to you soon!

If they don't want to, you'd still report the game and only list PFS numbers of players who are taking credit. The reporting will still go through just fine :)

I ran game #4 of the Emerald Spire tonight and reported it using the default choice. AND i seem to have lost 4 game table points and a GM star i just earned.

I should have 62 not 58 game tables of credit.

please let me (us) know?

thanks.

Just commenting to add information for whomever looks into this - I manually counted this GM's number of tables to be at exactly 60 on 2/20/15 when I awarded him a certificate for achieving his third GM star at our FLGS. I didn't download a list, so unfortunately I have no data to back this up other than my own records that I made the count. Hope this helps.

The spell "Unwelcome Halo" has a nice little side-effect in terms of how it interacts with magical darkness.

Spoiler:
If unwelcome halo is brought into an area of magical darkness (or vice versa), the effects of both spells are temporarily negated, so that the otherwise prevailing light conditions exist within the overlapping fields of effect.

I'm still behind on putting my Demon/Crusade campaign list together, but I'll add Anti-Aspis to my to-do list - I think it would be very cool too.

I have to post again because, on reflection, Season 0 has a lot of my personal favorites...so in support of the other recommendations:

- I have to echo Avatar-1 above - Prince of Augustana is a wonderful scenario for new GMs to tackle.

- Silent Tide is a great "intro" scenario to the society as a whole, and has a little bit of everything (combat, traps, talking, etc.).

- Frozen Fingers, Mists of Mwangi, and Black Waters (check the pfsprep.com website and/or the GM boards for neat menu ideas!) are awesome fun, and 2/3 of these actually do play important roles further down the road for PCs who end up at the higher tiers...

Spoiler:
Play #0-04 and #0-05 on whatever PC you eventually plan to play Eyes of the Ten with once you're level 12 - trust me!

Silver Crusade ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Indiana—Bloomington aka CanisDirus

Our Lady of Silver.

- Wedding Elephants
- Dancing on hot coals
- Dark Cults
- Courtroom drama
- A luxurious seaside view

It's especially awesome if you have extra time, so you can use some of the materials that a bunch of GMs put together including "faction missions" that are part of the main story and add a lot of fun RP, as Andrew mentions just above :)

Edit: My honorable mention goes to #22 Fingerprints of the Fiend - the first combat is unique and very challenging, and the third encounter can be *tons* of fun, especially if you know a local Star Wars player who can loan you some of these!

1 - Is there a definitive list of Hellknight ranks somewhere? I seem to recall seeing a list that had a few of them, but not a full one.

2 - Before/during the rise of House Thrune, the Order of the Pyre was effectively destroyed - were there any survivors who might remember the Hellknights from before House Thrune's ascension?

3 - Were they called Hellknights even before Asmodeus was the chief deity of Cheliax / when Aroden was still the main god worshiped there?

4 - This one is from a PFS scenario, but I'm hoping you might know... Scenario #2-10 Fury of the Fiend introduces an Andoran loyalist named Maladin Bane as a Hellknight infiltrator, but I've never seen anything talk about what happens to him. I don't suppose this is a NPC/character you know anything about?

As always, thank you *very* much for fielding all of everyone's questions, James!

Considering everything about Elves on Golarion, namely the gates, Sovyrian, Castrovel, etc. - am I crazy, or is there an homage to Spelljammer's Imperial Elven Navy somewhere in all of this? :)

noting that the IEN has always been one of my favorite things in gaming ever since I first got introduced to Spelljammer decades ago...

From another discussion elsewhere on the boards, and with full credit to Robert Thomson and Matt Savage for the original idea and layout, I present:

Perilous Pirates Pursuing Plunder:

Level 1
- #2-13 Murder on the Throaty Mermaid (The PCs start in Varisia on assignment)
- #4-15 The Cyphermage Dilemma (and thwart a local threat)
- #0-02 The Hydra's Fang Incident (before being recalled to Absalom to help with another sea-borne incident)

Level 2
- #0-08 Slave Pits of Absalom (While in Absalom, the PCs are tasked with dealing with local slavers)
- #6-05 Slave Ships of Absalom (...continued from above...)
- #6-06 Hall of the Flesh Eaters (and then are sent to the Shackles on an expedition)

Level 3
- Skull & Shackles 1 (2-4) (where they turn pirate and strike out for themselves!)

Level 4
- Plunder & Peril 1 (3-5) (Yo ho!)

Level 5
- Plunder & Peril 2 (4-6) (Yo ho!)

Level 6
- Plunder & Peril 3 (5-7) (A pirate's life for me!)

Level 7
- Skull & Shackles 2 (5-7) (Fifteen men...)

Level 8
- Skull & Shackles 3 (7-9) (...on a dead man's chest)

Level 9
- #5-07 Port Godless (5-9) (Sailing back to Absalom laden with plunder, they stop in Rahadoum to aid the society)
- #2-26 The Mantis' Prey (7-11) (Back in Absalom, they assist a onetime ally of the society)
- #4-08 The Cultist's Kiss (7-11) (and then are contracted to sail north and then west to aid with investigations in Varisia...)

Level 10
- #6-13 Of Kirin and Kraken (7-11) (...and Tien Xa)
- #0-20 King Xeros of Old Azlant (7-11) (The PCs find a mysterious ship on their way back into port in Absalom)
- #1-38 No Plunder, No Pay! (7-11) (And take their last formal society assignment sailing back to the Shackles once more!)

Level 11
- Skull & Shackles 4 (9-11) (Yo ho!)

Level 12
- Skull & Shackles 5 (11-13) (Yo ho!)

Level 13
- Skull & Shackles 6 (13-15) (A pirate's life for meeee!)

Silver Crusade ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Indiana—Bloomington aka CanisDirus

As a player of a few piratey characters myself, I *totally* applaud you for this :) Some ideas for other scenarios to potentially include:

#0-04 The Frozen Fingers of Midnight (1-5) is slightly more a-viking than piratey, but since Northmen going a-viking were effectively pirates anyway...

#2-01 is a good land-based one that still has a piratey feel to it (also 1-7) - Before the Dawn Part 1. Plus it's in Bloodcove which is just south of the Shackles.

#5-01 The Glass River Rescue (1-5) is a solid ship-based one where piratey tactics and mentalities could be a ton of fun.

Same with #6-05 Slave Ships of Absalom (1-5) a semi followup to #0-08 after a fashion.

I also agree with Matt that #6-06 Hall of the Flesh Eaters (1-5) is good for its location as well, if nothing else.

I don't think you need anything in this range, but #6-11 Slave Master's Mirror (3-7) ties into #0-08 and #6-05 really well, also, and #5-07 Port Godless (5-9) is a bit of infiltration, port-side stuff, could fit the overall theme.

#0-20 King Xeros of Old Azlant (7-11) could work too - mysterious ship appears, local government calls for the Society to check it out...

#2-26 The Mantis' Prey (7-11) isn't a perfect fit, methinks, but comes close to the kind of adventure swashbuckling pathfinders might enjoy.

When I played it, we were able to make #4-08 The Cultist's Kiss (7-11) into a sort of piratey adventure - the PCs need a "cover story" so my Pirate captain and his ship sailed in "laden with booty looking to spend it" and it influenced the theme of about half of the scenario.

These are on the other side of the world, but;

#3-11 Quest for Perfection pt 2 - On Hostile Waters (1-5) is a good fit for sailors/ship-board things.

#6-13 Of Kirin and Kraken (7-11) is also in the "close" category - infiltrating a swampy wasteland to seek a ruin buried beneath salt and silt.

-----

I really do like the list you've come up with, Robert - hope these suggestions help!

-----

Now, this is solely me, but if I were putting together a Pirate PFS Campaign, I think I'd go with...

Perilous Pirates Pursuing Plunder:

Level 1 - #2-13, #4-15, #0-02 (1-5 x3) [Varisia to Absalom]
Level 2 - #0-08, #6-05, #6-06 (1-5 x3) [Absalom to the Shackles]
Level 3 - Skull & Shackles 1 (2-4)
Level 4 - Plunder & Peril 1 (3-5)
Level 5 - Plunder & Peril 2 (4-6)
Level 6 - Plunder & Peril 3 (5-7)
Level 7 - Skull & Shackles 2 (5-7)
Level 8 - Skull & Shackles 3 (7-9)
Level 9 - #5-07, #2-26, #4-08 (5-9, 7-11 x2) [Rahadoum, Absalom, Varisia]
Level 10 - #6-13, #0-20, #1-38 (7-11 x3) [Tien Xa, Absalom, back to the Shackles]
Level 11 - Skull & Shackles 4 (9-11)
Level 12 - Skull & Shackles 5 (11-13)
Level 13 - Skull & Shackles 6 (13-15)

If you're trying to apply this to something explicitly spelled out in an official, binding FAQ, then you're not being reasonable.

There's a difference between reading two different rules in two different places and making a fuzzy connection in one's own mind, and reading an explicit FAQ that just flat-out says that something is legal.

EDIT: Or what Shisumo said.

It's way too late to edit my post, but I did want to say that, yes, that is something I hadn't considered when I made my original one, and I agree that Shisumo said it very well.

She's a good one - difficult to roleplay (one of the reasons I like playing Paladins - the challenge!)

From her Wiki entry:

Dalenydra is an angel empyreal lord concerned with battlefield healing and patron of those who undertake this work and have sworn an oath of non-violence.[1]

Followers

The Blessed Attendant's workers wear a special tabard that identifies them even in melee; their code allows them to defend themselves but must not attack. Their oath is honoured by many and even enemy soldiers are known to have refused to strike a servant of Dalenydra on the battlefield.[1]

He could still follow Iomedae, and still be part of the Mendevian Crusade's "exchange program" - my Paladin is/was right up until he hit level 13 a week or so ago.

Since as far as the PFS "canon" is concerned, the Worldwound is still a threat, the Mendevians still have much they can gain from their alliance with the Society - new methods to fight Demons, learning more about the time at which the Worldwound opened in the first place, learning more about any items related to Aroden that still have power (seeing how closely Aroden's power and fate have to the Worldwound's creation in the first place), and if nothing else, providing armed support in small numbers (I'm sure Queen Galfrey would rather spare a few paladins than a few companies of more mundane soldiers/knights) to protect Pathfinder agents who risked themselves in Mendev and the Worldwound in recent memory.

In addition, Iomedae's holy warriors still garrison the nation of Lastwall, which stands against the potential rise of the Whispering Tyrant, against the orc hordes from the Hold of Belkzen, and still in some ways against the corruption that Geb brought upon the goddess Arazni. Many paladins still live in Lastwall, and so fighting against Undead is still a way to serve Iomedae and the Society while leaving the front-lines of the Fifth Crusade behind you.

It's still very doable :)

That said, if you're concerned about your character starting to grow a bit softer being further away from the front-lines, I highly recommend picking up Chronicles of the Righteous. With Paladin as my favorite class to play in Pathfinder/D&D, it is one of my top 5 books that I am constantly finding new things to enjoy each time I read it. Several Empyreal Lords would probably fit the bill for your character!

A great place for a short overview are the Archives of Nethys, where you can look up the basics of each deity organized by pantheon or by alignment, for example: Lawful Good deities.

Hope this helps!

(Yes, you can be a Paladin with a LG, NG, or LN deity)

I was telling some of my local GMs about these, and I realized that there is a hidden 6th boon on the "Student of Spells" sheet:

Spoiler:

Quote:
The Master of Spells is infamous for the cantankerous disdain he shows to initiates and field agents, especially those who have no magical talents. Nonetheless, he is a gifted wizard with many discoveries to his name. You have earned his grudging approval—possibly even his respect — and he makes a special effort to spare you his derision in front of your peers.

Considering how Aram Zey treats 99% of Pathfinder agents (including Venture Captains and the other Masters) - that's a boon in and of itself! :P

IMHO this is a perfect example of "Expect Table Variation".

As the past 115 posts have shown, there are lots of different opinions on this spell and its effect on Paladins, from people who have never GM'd in PFS to people who have GM'd 200+ games. Rather than getting worked up over it, why don't we all "agree to disagree" and "expect table variation".

(I know arguing about rules is part of our reputation as gamers, but, over a level 1 spell/wand...?)
