BuA Edition ** spoiler omitted **

My group actually broke this encounter at Gencon

Blood under Absalom spoiler:
Our wizard grabbed the barbarian and cast Dimension Door, appearing in the space directly above the head of the guy. Our GM had to go to the head table, which had the scenario's author sitting there and talk over how to handle it.

Blood Under Absalom was also the 2nd multi table special released. Since that time, they have released 6 more, and they tend to get better each year with more options for the PCs. It also means the scenarios are notoriously hard to prepare for, I think one of the last 2-3 years was over 70 pages of scenario. If you printed out stat blocks, that added another 150 pages to prepare. That's what happens when you ask for more options to be included.

For a PFS scenario I read the scenario an average of 4 times when preparing. (I read through straight through it, then reread it, noting what maps/minis/stat blocks I need to collect, then reread it with multiple highlighters, highlighting skill DCs one color, details I need to ensure I mention another, and Special changes to stat blocks of defensive abilities a third color. These read-throughs are normally done over a month prior to running the scenario. 3 nights before running the scenario, I do another read-through to make sure I have it fresh in my mind when running it.) This is possible because of the fact that PFS scenarios are on average 19-26 pages. This makes running a slot for one of these multi-table specials, on the other hand, about a 20-25 hour endeavor, as it takes multiple times reading through to memorize the hand gestures and other table control used to ensure all GMs are on the same page.

Most scenarios presume one path is taken, and then give a few alternate DCs for skill checks and say "If the PCs try something else, use the above DCs as guidelines to assure you are appropriately challenge the PCs"

All published adventures have to have some railroading. Otherwise you are giving setting books and not adventures. Organized play strives to provide the same basic story hundreds of times around the world.

I've looked into this a little... I think a wiki might be the best way to do this. The miniature pages could have the categories [[category:minis used in ___]] Maps could have [[category:maps used in ___]] and each adventure could have links to these categories on them.

Through the Gate in the Sea has now been out for 11 months. It was under the old contract, since it was a TOR release, so should have gotten an audiobook...but audible/amazon does not show it as available yet. *sigh*

In 10 years of running PFS (I ran a slot 0 for season 0), I've seen very few people every hit level 7 before deciding to create a new PC because the new rulebook came out and it has shiny stuff.. of the 161 players on my local warhorn, only 11 have level 7 characters. Some have played over 200 games, and don't have a level 7 character yet. I have seen several players with 100+ games played who don't have a level 5 yet.

I hate that many of the storylines start in the low levels and end in the high ones.... because I could never get a group together for the end of the storyline. We've run maybe 10% of the 7-11s.... but we have some players who have run out of 1-5 and 3-7, don't have a level 7 character, and there are currently no other characters in 5-9 tier...

I guess what I'm trying to say, is that each state/region/group has different needs to keep it going. Its hard to generalize what's "needed" based on just what your group is seeing. Looking at your data set for season 8 I would have said there are too many 7-11 and I would remove 2 and add them to 3-7. But that's just based on what I see in my community.

I think it really depends on what part and time period of NO history you are looking to portray. Bourbon street it would be mostly different location from historical murder capitol, might be different from the Voodoo... its one of those things that it's easier to take parts of several locations to create one new location than it is to steal a location whole-cloth.

Several of the themes in NO are also more likely to be fleshed out now in a post horror adventures environment than they were prior to horror adventures being published.

I have around thousand different medium humanoid minis and really need only very special ones (Radovan and Varian please!) in addition.

I am in the process of re-organizing my minis. Prepainted minis alone I have almost 3,000 individual humanoid sculpts, (15,000+ humanoid minis). I have another 300-400 Reaper Bones and Metal minis with humanoid sculpts.

A certain number of humans, elves, dwarves, (half-)orcs etc. is okay and expected, but i´d prefer it to be not more than one third and the rest be creatures or humanoids which havn´t been done (to death) yet, like:

drow, lizardfolk, merfolk, svirfneblin, tengu, troglodyte, lycantrophes, grippli, locathah, catfolk, gillmen, kasatha, kitsune, lashunta, munavri, nagaji, ratfolk (in this set), samsaran, vanara, wayang... -

Personally anything more that 1/10 Humans/elves/dwarves/half-elves is too much. Half orcs I put in with halflings and gnomes at a level in between the humanoids and rarer races. I could see 1/6 of a set for these.

To be honest I want one set that has nothing with two legs in it. I've also fought on these boards for more non-evil cities with less than 5% core book races in Golarion, and the Globe of Golarion that was teased as a possibility if the Gazeteer sold well. So I guess I'm proponent of St Jude.

Nope, the second party in the triangle is usually the customer, i.e. us.

In fact, all third party products are done under a license, whether it's the OGL or the Pathfinder Compatibility License, the Paizo Community License, or an individually negotiated license like the one Games & Gears is likely using.

As far as the RPG industry is concerned, 2nd party has always referred to parties other than the owner, with a license that allows them to use the owner's IP. Paizo was considered and referred to as a 2nd party publisher for D&D when they were printing Dragon and Dungeon magazines, for example.

And, is that a superstition that has sprung up around the 'stone, or a real thing?

Actually according to the guide to absalom (p17) "The only publicly known part of the Test of the Starstone is

that hopefuls have to cross the bottomless pit without using
one of the existing bridges
; nobody has been able to enter the
Starstone Cathedral by taking the easy route. Hopefuls have
used many ways in the past millennia to cross the pit: mages
have flown across with magic, priests have walked on air, and
others have used flying mounts. Stranger methods include
giant slingshots or walking a tightrope, while some make
mighty leaps, convinced of their worthiness. Not all of these
methods are successful, and what worked for one person can
fail for another; some don’t make it across, and some do but
cannot enter the cathedral."

it also allows players to click on your alias and see all the posts to your games without being lost in posts to other boards. So say you have a in character thread, and out of character thread, and a rules question/discussion thread, if one gets 'lost' off the first page you can find it easily if all three are being posted by one account (IE searching the alias' posts for things about ship to ship combat or infamy/disrepute questions for a skull and shackles game)

Well... the Confirmation has someone trying to cross it by jumping his warhorse over it, and then jumping from said horse to cross the rest of the way. Everyone else you talk to seems to think there is no way that will work, yet according to the Guide to Absalom, p. 17 hopefuls have leaped across in the past.

I'd put it at 'the length needed to fit the story you are telling'

I know that Starfinder is the "new thing" but can we please have more pathfinder content for those of us who don't love sci-fi?

The early days of the blog, every product got the same treatment the starfinder core rulebook is: we would hear about backmatter articles in AP adventures months in advance, and those talking about them would be excited about the "dragon part of the dragon and dungeon in one product". When was the last time we had a blog about something in the backmatter of an AP?
March 29 some people may comment that doesn't even count, as it was an aside, and wasn't even to get people excited about backmatter. Icouldn't even tell you what was in the backmatter of any APs since reign of winter/mummies mask - as those were the last times there area a real blog entry on backmatter. I can still tell you the backmatter of each of the first 12 issues though, because they ALL had multiple blogs about their content.

When was the Last time a Pathfinder Chronicles (edit pathfinder campaign setting) product had a blog about them? Feb 24th

Player companion? March 17th

Can we have more of the hype that made the blog something I looked foreward to daily?

things from the paizo warehouse are taken out of inventory as soon as you finalize the order. Things they have to order never gets put in general inventory (this was changed to be this way when they did the green ronin clearance stock sale and had issues with the inventory management, so that was 5 years ago... it might have changed since )

I've never really thought of all the AP's actually taking place in the same continuity. The ISWG is just a setting with a series of hooks. Some of those hooks are AP's, but we can't play all of them with the same characters. By definition we only play characters who do exceptional things. All those other hooks that we don't play turn out not to be important.

If you're running, e.g., Curse of the Crimson Throne, then Sandpoint is merely a place where a Cathedral burnt down and was rebuilt and Karzoug never woke up, while over in Irrisen Baba Yaga is just late returning because her watch was slow, and Brinewall is just one of several towns in Golarion where there is no mystery: the people simply disappeared. No larger, more sinister story develops in these other places because in your continuity, the problem of the current age is centered around Korvosa.

note there are several APs that reference events in earlier APs. Shattered Star references the first 3 and the two recent cherish ones reference each other in at least rumor.

The Core Game is massive. To ensure its safety, it is being package into its own carton with corner protectors. It is too heavy to ship with other rewards. It would crush them!

I understand the hesitation to use actual monster names due to licensing, but that means for some of the lesser-known minis I have no clue what the actual creature represented is.

I don't think so. I've been thinking about doing this for a while, and will try to make a database for it when I do my next re-org of my minis later this year. If I see you at Connecticon, I'll try to have an up to date beta file ready and on a CD by then....

Without reading too far into it parts of Sargava and the underground Caverns feature terrain similar to the press pics of Primeval Thule. I would say the 'land of the lost' like underground caverns would be the best bet, as they havn't been fleshed out as much. Sargava has a player's companion and a novel set there.

The demigods part mentioned in their homepage makes me a little leary, as Golarion has a very specific cosmology and ladder of Devine beings....

The newest tales novel sly knives is set in a taldan town on the outskirts and hits on several of the themes alluded to here: thieves guilds, nobles, feelings towards other nations, and we see a church of abadar. Also it's one of the better books in the line.

Worship. Of Sarenrae was originally written to be outlawed in Taldor, this has been ignored in later books almost retconnned by omission, but several PFS scenarios have that as a premise, so they couldn't completely retcon it.

humor ahead RE goblins:
goblins are hated by every other race, and exiled to a desert planet where most of them die of dehydration. a small number find that if they dress in brown robes, and become a bit less chaotic, the suns doesn't dry them out as quickly. These 'scavenge' a large, rhomboid shaped transport from some humans the stab/shoot/stab again and continue scavenging from the unforgiving desert, collecting spare parts, droids, and scrap metal. They continue this until a column of warriors dressed in white massacre them for some of the goods that they had already sold to moisture farmer

Adventure Paths were not able to be used for credit until about season 5 or 6 of PFS. Because of this, they are playing catch-up. Some APs will most likely never get sheets (Wraith of the Righteous for that same reason you mentioned). Chronicles for APs take a long time to make:

1) Read the whole AP, figure out which part will be playable.
2)List out the loot
3)figure out if all of the loot should be availible, and/or partially charged on the sheet
4) assign the value of the loot for the chronicle sheet
5)figure out the Gold for the sheet
6)figure out if there is a boon that should be provided and write that up.
7)send it to editing to be reviewed.

Since the PFS team is so small, chronicles for the APs/modules are less important than getting the monthly scenarios out on time, or prize support for Cons out. The same is true for the editing/layout where furute products that cost money take preference. So normally John (and Linda now) gets time to sit down and do a few just after Gencon. We usually don't see these until December. I believe that they were working backwards... but with the Curse of the Crimson Throne hardcover coming out, That may be getting preference.

Also as this is done by the PFS team, I have flagged this to be moved to the PFS forum

Even if you don't want it cluttering up the specific article page, you could add a link to a "ancient falsehoods" page or something, and just have a compiled list of "NOPE" organized by area or person (ex: "lies about Tar-Baphon" or "false/slanderous histories about Taldor" or something).

While only a little bit of what you are asking here, I feel this is a good spot to highlight our Canon Conflicts category any time we find conflicting information on a subject the conflict icon (the little assci cross) is added to the page, this category is added, and a link to a meta [pagename]/conflicts page is set up describing both points of the conflict and why one was chosen over the other in the wiki article.
