Congratulations Reyn! SO well deserved! You are a cornerstone of our lodge and are one of the main reasons I love being a VO here!

Congratulations to all the new VCs and 5 Star GMs as well!

Hello! I was informed that this is an issue that can only be resolved by Customer Service, and so here I am.

Two of the characters from a recent PFC game (...one of them mine) are apparently marked as "RPG" characters when both are actually "PFC" (core) characters:

http://paizo.com/people/CuromelHendalcaliN
http://paizo.com/people/StupidCore1

Would it be possible to have them reset back to PFC so they can be reported without errors going forward?

Thanks very much in advance!

Not even sure if it's worth reporting, but I just noticed that the "statistics" page is not synced up with some profile pages.

As always, love the site and thank you for the work put in on it!

Yea, I probably won't run another one until after Thanksgiving at this point, but I'll keep everyone posted in case they want in. In the meantime I'm going to mark this game as finished/inactive, so thank you all very much again for making my first GM PbP experience a fun one!

Setting the start of the festival at Noon (with the PCs arriving around 11am) might help line things up with your timetable?

I have a feeling Palmer ran into page limitations. That's a shame, because the speeches in particular would be a challenge to improvise in a way that really gives a sense of atmosphere. I hope that my addenda will help other GMs to establish a sense of atmosphere, that Rosehaven is a village of people rather than NPCs waiting for the Pathfinders to show up.

I had the same reaction after prepping this. I wish I had had your prose addendum when I ran it - very well done!

One minor sour note on the set. I was expecting the cage to open, but somehow (probably for stability, I dunno), the cage doesn't open. So it's still a cool set piece, but you can't trap Small and Medium creatures in it like I intended, which is a bummer.

Fair warning!

No worries, nothing I can't fix with a hobby knife!

I suspect if I just cut off the bottom it can be placed over smaller models like a lot of gelatinous cube minis. Will need to be a really clean cut though.

Great idea - let us know how that goes?

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

Ran this yesterday (High 4 player). With a Paladin of Shelyn leading the social charge, the PCs made all the right choices, and even taking our time we finished in just over 3 hours.

The only bit that threw me was putting Bertinard's memories/etc. after the Feather Seed encounter - the players were convinced that they had to immediately go hunt for the "source" after befriending Feather Seed (again rather quickly due to a highly social party).

The final combat was a bit brutal for the PCs due to some unlucky tactical choices, but people pitched in to have the Paladin raised from the dead at the hands of the Burning Hag.

Great scenario and fun to GM. Will post a review of it to the product page soon too!

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

Donated what I could. Just wish I could do more.

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

I am none of these things...but I know several people in my lodge who are. I'll tag 'em and see if they can add anything to the discussion to help! :)

Anything one of us can do to help in that regard?

Just posting in case it hasn't already been noticed, but the site seems to have been down for awhile.

Again, thank you for all your hard work in making the site and doing the upkeep on the site!

For a third year, we have been invited by the Indiana University Union Board to run gaming events at BloomingCon on the IU-Bloomington campus (Indiana Memorial Union)!

Join us for 5 packed PFS RPG and ACG slots, including the Season 2 Special - Year of the Shadow Lodge, on Sunday!

Convention fees will be announced soon, but based on previous years will probably only be $5-10 for the whole weekend. We also still have a couple of GM volunteer spots open if you'd like to lend a hand and earn a neat GM boon!

Register (free) for the convention and sign up for games on our Warhorn Page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Venture Lieutenant Justin McNeely or myself via email or through the Paizo website.

Thanks very much, and hope to see you in a few weeks!

(Note - Nov 12 is an IU home football game vs. Penn State, so parking may be difficult. If you are driving in from out of town and want local intel on the best places to park, let us know!)

I just wanted to post this picture from our local PFS night earlier this evening. Our youngest Star GM, Raymond, created a chase scene from #4-01 Rise of the Goblin Guild entirely from legos - the players from that table tell me that it was a ton of fun, so, with pride, I wanted to share! :)

Chase Scene!

Just fyi, my internet here is still virtually nil except from my 3g phone (hard to type long posts with big fingers and tiny keys...). An IT friend of mine came out to take a look at it and concluded, "yeah dude, you're screwed." That said, we have a plan and hopefully it will only delay me posting a little bit. Worst case scenario, I'll be able to access a reliable internet connection Monday early afternoon.

Again, I am really sorry for all the delays on my end.

No worries here, B. If I could convince my brother to give pfs a try I'd say just give it to him lol (he's flying to the states for a visit in 2 weeks).

Thank you very much for running this - I'm still a relative novice at pbp, and this was fun!

Thank you for that clarification, Linda - can we have this added to the campaign clarifications or something similar? This is a pretty big ruling! :)

Linda clarified that you must be in tier for the adventure, which covers scenarios and modules, and MotFF is still a Tier 1 module.

Tonya has made further clarification that I suspect will be included in the revision to the season 8 guide (which I sent you a related message about ~10 minutes before your last post...)

I don't think you get to both play and GM an Evergreen at level two -- it is one or the other.

This was clarified before this season's guide came out (albiet in a blog post behind a spoiler tag)

http://paizo.com/paizo/blog/v5748dyo5li7w?Updated-My-Journal

Quote:
A player can play a replayable scenario adventure an unlimited number of times with 1st-level characters, and once with a 2nd-level character. Similarly, a GM can apply credit for a running a replayable scenario adventure multiple times to as many of her 1st-level characters as she likes, and she can apply credit to a 2nd-level character once.

(Changed scenario to adventure in keeping with the changes to this season's guide).

GMs have been able to apply credit as well as PC credit to level 2 characters for these adventures since at least November (those who had already made the correct interpretation of applying credit could have done so far beyond this past November). If this is changed, there is now a whole new layer of inconsistencies in character record-keeping, since before August 2016 people could do X, but afterwards cannot, meaning that some character records might appear to be illegal when they are in fact not, ad infinitum ad nauseum.

Update on the Chronicle Sheet from the Author and Developer:

Second Boon:

The Elemental Awakening boon references Affinity boons that you earn after applying the Chronicle sheet for 7-99. When applying this boon, the character with the boon can also gain credit from affinity boons on chronicle sheets from any previous scenarios on any of your characters.

any Idea when this goes live to 5 stars ?

Stay tuned - there may be additional requirements in addition to GM Star rating to run this particular scenario.

Just in case someone find this thread without finding one of the other threads in which this issue has been clarified:

All Tier 1 and 1-2 adventures can be replayed an unlimited number of times with a 1st-level character for credit. The Tier 1 and 1–2 adventures can also be played with a 2nd-level character once for credit in each campaign mode (Core and Standard Modes).

Master of the Fallen Fortress is a Tier 1-2 adventure, and (barring any changes to the guide after the time of my post) can be played and GM'd once each with 2nd level characters/credit, and unlimited times for 1st level characters/credit.

For note - First Steps is a Scenario.

Master of the Fallen Fortress is a Module.

Linda has clarified that First Steps Part 1 does not qualify for 2nd level replay, but Master of the Fallen Fortress is still a Tier 1-2 adventure, and can be played and GM'd once each with 2nd level characters/credit.

I got asked something similar by my players during one of my sessions, and I explained it in sort of an economics way;

The Duergar like to take slaves and launch military expeditions against Dwarves. They also maintain the Long Walk and allow passage/collect tolls. By allowing the occasional Dwarf/enemy past, they take that money and turn it into more/better weapons to use on their preferred activity.

My players seemed to get it, and we moved on (that said - any time I had a party with a Dwarf, they decided to try and use Survival/etc. to navigate around. :P

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

I'll be posting a full review in a day or two, but let me just say here that this scenario was absolutely fantastic to run 3 times at Gen Con. Easy to prep, easy to run, easy for players to have fun.

Great work on this one, Mike!

UNPARALLELED SUPPLIER (7+ goals): Your access to superior resources makes your team deadlier. You can re-roll a total

number of your or your allies’ weapon or spell damage dice per day equal to your number of goals completed; you must
use the new result.

So if a party member cast a 10d6 fireball and I'm wanting to use one use of this ability on them, do they reroll 1 of the 10 dice or are they rerolling all ten of the dice?

If you have 7 goals completed, you can choose to reroll 7 of their 10 dice for that fireball, but then that's it for the ability for the day. Or you could have them reroll 3 of the 10, and then you have 4 left for the rest of the day, etc.

1 - In Location B, does B2 count as one room or two?

2 - In each of the rooms for Location B, where are the blue crystals? I know it gives their vertical location, but horizontally it doesn't say. My guess would be center of the rooms, but not sure if you wanted something specific?

3 - In Location C, do freed Wysps have any "morale conditions" under which they would use their "living battery" ability?

4 - In Location C, where (geographically) is the ring of electricity? The box text seems to suggest that it is directly above the Thassalonian runes, but again, just wanted to make sure.

Thanks very much again!

Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on these? Thanks in advance!

I was thinking about just having a note card by each hazard indicating it's current distance from the "center" or starting location. As things move, I'll just change the numbers. It's going to be very interesting. Probably more RP than math.
I made a bunch of cards with 100', 200', 500', and 50' that I plan to scatter around to show distances between things, changing them as needed.

I rather like this idea - hope you don't mind someone else yoinking it (and giving you full credit, of course)!
