I re-bought all of the hardcover books in PDF just so I can have them on my tablet. I dont buy hard covers anymore.

In order to utilize content from an Additional Resource, a player must have a physical copy of the Additional Resource in question, a name-watermarked Paizo PDF of it, or a printout of the relevant pages from it, as well as a copy of the current version of the Additional Resources list.
Its that last part that most people forget about. I dont know many people who actually carry the additional resources with them and I dont know many people who enforce it, but your mileage may vary.
I had a player recently whose character was very much a jerk to the NPCs but not to other players and me. There was no inter player conflict. He accepted my rulings with applomb even when they went contrary to what he was trying to do as a character.
I had to tell him that while it might be a great service to humanity as a whole to
throw an unconscious Razmiran tax collector into the river
that it was probably not ok from an alignment perspective.
Or a low level Guntank (Archtype) that uses a dragon pistol (Full plate/tower shield) as he tells the bad guys "gather round children - I have something to teach you! (Day Job: Profession Teacher)....
hehe. My cleric of Hanspur wears full plate and carries a tower shield (-12 swim). Profession (lifeguard).

Sorry. I dont quite understand. Can you say it using smaller words? Maybe I'm brain dead.

Yeah its a really good idea. Like nosig, I was super impressed.
I did have to edit them though because I have Augment Summoning. I dont like having to adjust things on the fly.
This is due to good parenting. I got her dad to make me some for summon nature's ally as well. :)

LOL. A few players I know bring squiggle dice to the table and I offer to let them use a set of mine that are legible. I know dice are a very personal thing with gamers but...

I also like this feature and I put EVERYTHING I buy on it on individual lines regardless of the cost. I have some characters that are up to 2 sheets. Its not that much extra effort and the payback is large IMO.
I carry extra blank ITSs around for games that I run. I run across many new players who have not heard of the concept and dont have one for their characters.
That is why my paladin is Oath of Vengeance. "Never let lesser eveils (sic) distract you from your pursuit of just vengeance."
No problem with undead as long as they are fighting on my side. I suppose an argument can be made that undead are not a "lesser evil" but hey, I sleep soundly at night. Your mileage may vary.

The Society comprises thousands of adventures coming from all walks of life, and it places no moral obligations upon its members. Each member of a Pathfinder Society adventuring party is expected to forgo all personal and theological differences and work together to achieve the Society’s goals.
I cast fireball and get permission from the rogue that would be caught in the area. He says "I have evasion and +15 reflex save. Go for it." He then proceeds to roll a natural 1. The damage is enough to kill him.
The problem is the statement, "In short, you can never voluntarily use your character to kill another character—ever."
I could argue that I didn't voluntarily kill the other players character (because I had no intent). Then again, I could make the opposite argument as well because I knew that it possibly could.
What should actually happen in that case?
Would I be forced to calculate maximum damage from the fireball and if it would kill the player, am I forbidden from casting it, even with permission?
My paladin is actually weird enough on his own.
Pit-born tiefling with a connection to the first world (fey foundling).
Worships Iomedae but prefers to use a scimitar.
Specializes in self healing and cannot channel positive energy.
Overlooks most minor indiscretions by other players due to his oath "never let lesser evils distract you from the pursuit of just vengeance."
Thanks! Was worried I was using the wrong version.

actual game play information...spoilers be here!:
We just played this on Tuesday subtier 8-9 on hard mode. Nathan was running it for us. When we put in our combination and pulled the lever... Nathan said something I didnt quite catch but... the door opened so I really didnt care.
So you could have diplomacized the fiendish hound archons? That never occurred to us. We just beat all 3 of them down.
After the allips (I fricken hate allips!) we had no idea that the armor had any significance and thus didnt even ask about it.
The final battle... just insane. We finally activated on the final round before Ollystra was to die. I count it as a stunning victory and I shall recant the tale to my grandchildren one day.

They must be saying... What? When did that happen? I didnt get the memo. That is a code change. Will require a month of testing. :)
Did you wind up keeping the "sacred prostitute" idea? I thought that was kind of interesting.
By the way, I ran a game for Auntie recently and she was quite fond of using the "unnatural lust" spell. Using it to great effect upon one of the NPCs with the target of lust being a druid's large cat animal companion (the cat was not amused). Roleplaying gold. We had much fun with that one.
I used to have WAY more than normal but then they instituted the stupid out of subtier gold policy. Boo hiss. I recall playing my very first scenario on my armored hulk barbarian (played subtier 4-5) and having enough money to buy masterwork full plate afterwards. Those were the days. :)
This is atypical and actual results may vary.
I made an oath of vengeance paladin (level 6 now) of Iomedae with 7 wisdom for low sense motive. That way the party can convince me to go pick mushrooms for breakfast when they want to do something they know I wont approve of. With a -2 survival it often times takes me quite a while to pick enough mushrooms to feed a party of 6.
Code of Conduct: Never let lesser eveils (sic) distract you from your pursuit of just vengeance.
I dont have an issue with playing a pit born tiefling paladin abandoned at birth and found in the wilds bearing a mark of the First World. :)
I aint afraid of no certification process. Bring it on.
Sorry to necro this thread but I just found it!
I do so love this game. Mostly because of the people that I have met that I wouldn't have otherwise met.
I admit to having been the cause of some of Janet's fits of laughter. Good times!
Tag nosig! You are a good friend.
I hate glitter. Whenever my 7 year old daughter does a craft, I have people telling me for months, "Hey, there is something shiny in your hair.".

Ok so we have 7 people show up to play. All we can play is a season 0-3. I form a table of 4 so we get maximum xp and tell the other two players sorry? Or do I penalize those that showed up just because they showed up?
Also, you can find larger sized coolers with the same features (wheels and extendable handle).

That is a valid point.
It used to bother me too. I got over it. Can I understand the core of what someone is trying to say? If not, meh.
I have a really good friend that posts to these boards quite a bit. This individual has dyslexia. They cannot spell to save their life. Their posts are as insightful and well reasoned as any I have found on these boards. Are they grammatically correct and free of spelling errors? Does it truly matter?
One thing I would suggest is to scan in your Chronicle Sheets so that if they are ever lost, stolen or destroyed you can at least print them out again. I always scan in mine.
Another good idea is to snap a picture of the tracker sheet with your phone before its handed in because little pieces of paper have a way of getting lost sometimes.

Deviant Diva, I remind you that there's a rumor out that the campaign leadership does not want people using pre-gens when they have characters in tier to play. The GM might simply not allow the guy to play a pre-gen.
I suppose this leaves room for playing say a level 7 in a 3-7 when you have a level 3... but it seems like they are moving closer to what you have said Chris.

If you play a non-1st-level pregenerated character, you apply the credit to your character as soon as she reaches the level of the pregenerated character played. You may not apply a Chronicle sheet earned with a pregenerated character to a character that was already at the level of the pregenerated character or higher, as you should have used this character for the scenario instead.
