Valley of the Veiled Flame (which has some call-backs to Night March of Kalkamedes) takes place in the shadow of a Qadiran volcano, and is a really neat scenario (one of my personal favorites from Season 6).
Fires of Karamoss is another Season 6 scenario that has some volcanic involvement...saying more would be risking spoilers.
Scions of the Sky Key Parts 1-3 take place in several locations in and around Garund.
I'm sure I'll think of more in short order, but those came to mind rather immediately heh.

Anyone have any more recent info on these questions? Looks like I'm running this right after a con this week, so any short-cuts I can take in prep would be immensely helpful! :)
InCon is mainly a "fandom" convention rather than a gaming con, so expect lots of non-gamers to be all over the place. PFS will be in one of the Veteran's suites which are in the far NE corner of the hotel's convention areas.
Definitely bring a water bottle (I honestly don't remember how close the nearest vending/food areas are from the PFS rooms), and all of your chronicle sheets for any of your PFS characters you're bringing. Aside from that, bring lucky dice for your RPG or ACG scenarios and to win boons and other prizes! :)
Hillis and anyone else he's got at PFS HQ can help you with anything else you need on-site. One of my VLs and I will be driving up Saturday morning, so if you need anything on the 2nd, just ask for me (or look for the probably-tallest guy in the room wearing a purple Pathfinder shirt) and I'd be happy to help out too!
Drive safe getting there, and see you this weekend!
This is a sample email from him:
"Your options are.
Bust: Head and shoulders
Please include as much detail as you feel needed."
So I think you can go as much or as little as you want!
Hey there! So, a friend of a friend of mine found this on tumblr and it caught my eye, since I mainly use tumblr for looking at neat character art (and finding artists to one day save up to commission).
This artist is trying to raise money to pay for an emergency surgery brought on by a bad car crash, and is offering to do character art for as little as a dollar to this end (I wouldn't expect him to do super full color for only $1 myself, though).
I wanted to boost the signal for this by posting it to the Pathfinder Society, since there are thousands of us out here who have characters, and I'd guess many are like me - bad at drawing and constantly on the lookout for a good artist to draw our PCs!
So, here's the link to the details, some samples of his art, and the place where he's raising money (indiegogo). Thanks very much for reading, and best wishes to all.
I'd love to say yes but that would open a can of worms for every other less than capable boss in the campaign. Just basic stuff, like a potion of invisibility, of feather step or alchemical gear, or a magic weapon would save many a foe.
I do agree with you, but this boss in particular spends at least four scenarios learning about / studying his foe (the PCs), possibly even more. Also most scenario BBEGs don't get nearly enough gold to buy much of anything, whereas this one gets so much that it's even pointed out as a special ability at the end of his stat block.
Plus, my VL makes the point that this is the epic "retirement from normal PFS play" moment of a PC's career, and it should be a rather big challenge for them.
One of my VLs and I are helping another GM prep Eyes of the Ten, and we stumbled onto a rather odd question that we were hoping to get feedback on:
Forewarned is forearmed?:
So, Adril Hestram is the mastermind behind this, and his triumphant finale is to kill Shemis inside Skyreach. He's had multiple interactions with the PCs - hearing their stories and seeing them on Akiton, if nothing else (possibly knowing lots more about them if they played in scenarios where they reported to him).
His character sheet lists 200 platinum and 144 gold. If he's aware of something super nasty that the PCs can do, can a GM have him spend some of that gold to help protect himself?
Example - Super (bordering on "broken") quick-grapple-pin-strangle-specialist Brawler who openly advertises how awesome she is at bringing enemies to submission in "world record" times. Could he pop 90 platinum for a Lesser Talisman of Freedom in order to give himself Freedom of Movement for 3 rounds should she happen to go for him?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
I know of two scenarios from seasons 5-7 that give you the ability to get an extra trait on a newly created character, plus I'm pretty sure that there are a few boons that also give extra traits out there as well.
So there are ways :)
I have one character with 4 traits who has never taken the "Additional Traits" feat myself.
To this day, I still don't know what I did in a previous life to earn the pleasure of being the VC for the amazing Pathfinders in my lodge! Not a week goes by that doesn't find me with something new to be proud of from my players and GMs, and wow did we just finish off something special!
In the span of the last 10 days, I have had the pleasure of announcing five lodge members who have attained new GM Star levels! I am so proud of my GMs, that I felt like sharing their accomplishments with everyone!
Congratulations, again, to all of you. I am proud and humbled to have you and the rest of our GMs (56 GM Stars, combined!) who make our lodge such a joy to be a part of. Thank you for all that you do for the Pathfinder Society!!!

Since I'm prepping this to run in a few weeks and notice that the scenario never got updated - it is important for GMs to check the conversation here for a correction to the puzzle solution:
One of my local 4-Star GMs uses this image (from a Final Fantasy game, I believe?) to represent the Pathfinder Society's "Second Grand Lodge" in Quantium, Nex:
He used it as a launching point for a pre-mission briefing before running Wardens of the Reborn Forge - so the PCs knew what they were getting into before heading down from Absalom to Nex to Alkenstar.
First - Welcome to Pathfinder Society and thank you in advance for wanting to run games for people and share the fun of this hobby with others! :)
As for VA, etc., Rigby's and DM Livgin's posts are definitely the way to go there!
The real trick will come later when you want to be a VL or VC - then you have to engage the current ones in single combat and take their hea...
er...perhaps I've said too much ^^;

I'd contact your local Venture Captain and see about tracking that player down to find their VC as well, if you don't already know it. Your VC should be able to find that information out, and contact their VC too.

Hope it'll be announced soon, seeing as my app just updated and Adventure 3 is *super* awesome so far! ;-)
I had a player at my table of this last week want to use a wand of Create Water to help put out the fire. Since the tent is described as oil-soaked, I reasoned that the water wouldn't put out the fire automatically, so I asked the player to roll 1d6 and add the result to his Survival check to put it out - an idea inspired by the ACG, in fact. I could have given a flat bonus as per the CRB due to the good idea, but when I mentioned that out loud, my players really liked it.

As for the Crysmals, I think someone answered that further up-thread, but I'm on a mobile device right now so I can't easily check.
Request - Clarifications on the Inner Sea Pirate prestige class from the "Pirates of the Inner Sea" Player Companion.
Here is the relevant thread detailing that the PrC is missing its HD. Also missing is a clarification on whether page 24 or 25 in Pirates of the Inner Sea is correct as to when Pirate Tricks are obtained.
Here is some commentary noting an AP NPC with this prestige class and his stats. In it, the AP suggests that the chart on Page 25 of Pirates of the Inner Sea is correct and the text on Page 24 is wrong. It also confirms what James Jacobs said about the class having d8 HD.
Thanks very much in advance.
