So, some VLs have responsibilities that aren't game schedule or game day related.

It all depends upon the needs of the region and the VCs view of how to address those needs.

Yup, since i work on computers, and troll the boards a lot, one of my responsibilities is to tell my VC if there is a thread he needs to read, and possibly chime in on.

It was originally going to be a Feb release, when it was pushed back, they most likely didn't update the release date in the system, so it just showed the current stock of 0 and sold out when the original release date was reached.

Indeed - we'll start with Boar and Rabbit then. Also, I'll start the post on Saturday with a link to a new thread the same way as Death's Heretic. Here we go...

I know that you want to keep the voting organic for what we read next, but I think that we need to make another thread for deciding order - that way, if someone were going to star with the next book, they could order it when it is announced, and have it in before the first part of the discussion starts, so they won't be playing catch up the entire time.

Are you asking about having the players like the bosses, or the PCs?

If you're asking about the players, make their builds tough, but flavourful. Remember, most fights last less than 8 rounds. Depending on the level, you'll probably have room to use a flavourful feat or two.

Another thing. If you haven't built the sisters.... Maybe add some stuff from the occult adventures playtest? Looks like you're using mostly core, so some of these things might 'break' their ideas of what is possible... This could make them memorable encounters....

B.T.W., even notice how disorganized and ineffective the Technic League is at controlling technology - even though it somehow kept super-science from spreading into the neighboring nations.

My reading of the Technic League is that it doesn't really care about the spread of technology as much as it claims, because most Androffan technology is useless or redundant to magic, much of the good stuff will break before anyone figures it out, and the rest is literal toxic waste.

The League does care about the spread of its studies of technology, and while it's internally dysfunctional the League somehow gets awfully competent in a hurry toward defectors or when so much as a League book winds up in a third party's hands.

But isn't that the opposite of why the Technic league is hunting the main character in City of the Fallen Sky. they aren't hunting him for defecting, and he's not teaching others their secrets at the time, but instead they hunt him because he has 3 baubles from the sky mount. Its been a while since I read, that book, so I MAY be wrong....

I have my religious characters use their god's title when addressing members who are not a part of their faith, and they in turn use the titles as well if they know them. I imagine it to be a little bit like the god stating "Only my friends get to call me Shelyn."

Another way of thinking of it is how medieval subjects would refer to their lord by title, rather than by name, but the lord's closest friends and servants (and they could get quite close) would be able to refer to them by name comfortably.

I do something similar. Other than a few of the major gods, most of my (PFS) players don't know the title right away. So I've found that both written NPC and myself will refer to both name and title the first time, and then use title for the rest of the conversation.

I mean look at Desna(link to wiki page), she has a ton of titles:

The Song of the Spheres
The Great Dreamer
Starsong
The Tender of Dreams
Lady Luck
Resplendent Goddess of Fortune
Goddess of the North Star
Queen of the North Star
Mother Moon

Would a PC know all of these? A cleric of Desna? yes. Other Clerics? Most likely with an knowledge check. Lay people? No way. Therefore whichever title a NPR is going to use should be prefaced the first time used; "Desna, Lady Luck"

Tbug noticed on the wiki:

This module was put in print over 4h years ago, the same day the Core rule book was available. The fact that it took over 3 years for the print run to sell out points to there not being enough a demand for a second print run. So I doubt they will print a second run...also I don't think a module has ever had a second print run...

depends on what you're looking for The Pathfinder Society Primer is an introduction to the in world pathfinder society. It is still in print.

If you're asking about Organized play, the Guide to organized play has all of the rules. This changes 1-2 times a year, so is only availible in PDF form.

If you are asking about information about Golarion in general, I'd suggest looking up whichever topic you are interested in on the Pathfinder Wiki and look to the reference section, that will give you the books used to build that particular page.

Wow, that's a super list! I had no idea PFS used the maps to that extent. In that light I'm sort of surprised if the only map that's used in modules/APs is the one I mentioned above. Surely there are more?

I think Town Square is used in Rise of the Runelords Anniversary edition. But I'm at a Con printing chronicle sheets right now, so can't download my PDF to check it

Hi,

is there anywhere a list of which flip-mats and map packs are exact maps useful for an adventure or adventure path?

For example, I believe that Flip-Mat: Pirate Ship is useful for Skull & Shackles 1.

Is that the only one?

I have a list for early PFS scenarios.....

I think he's saying that if you take the 'good' route, you get quick XP but little loot, and can run quests for the rest of the slot. If you do the 'murderhobo' route you get full loot, but it takes the whole time, and Paladins may have an issue with it.

Historically it appears that the short sword has been used with large or tower shields. Because of the reduced field of movement this provided it was primarily used as a piercing or thrusting weapon

Yeah, the server was having problems, once we pointed it to the IP host, thy restarted the server and it came back within 5 minutes.

Giorgo, for your first question, my personal rule of thumb for the regular pathfinder wiki is anything that I can have 3 sentences on is worthy of a page.

Feel free to ask wiki questions on the pathfinderwiki.com forums here we may not all play PFO, but for the wiki stuff we've been working with the same wiki engine for up to 5 years, so we may be able to answer questions

Hi Bondy, which Bristol are you asking about? I know of at least 4 towns by that name.

While not as many people play PFS, I would love some sets that are based on upcoming season. For example, I have absolutely zero robots or other creatures common to this season in my mini collection.

These can easily be found in the star wars mini lines, and are very polarizing to the "don't get sci-fi in my fantasy" people.

I'm flagging this is in the wrong forum because it is a rule question and not a PFS question hopefully you can get a response by peoples FAQ it and use that for your PFS needs.

Personally I would allow it for anything 99 gold or less if the spell itself has material components listed and 100 gold if the spell itself does not have material components listed because otherwise you would go over your hundred gold limit for false focus

Because if you tried casts spell that requires bat guano... That bat guano has a cost. It is included ni the cost of the spell component pouch, but there is a cost. So if you allow a 100gp alchemical component it would cost 100gp and 1/10 of a copper piece, it is still over the maximum of 100gp (I forgot that the alchemical replaces and is not in addition to the original material component )

Yup, it shares a hosting cost with pathfinderwiki.com and most of the funding for that comes from our pockets. Since pathfinderwiki uses the community use policy, we cannot make money off of it, but we added the donation button as a better option than putting adds on.

The scenario was written when 1 pp per mission was the norm, but occasionally you could get two. When the doc that outlines the secondary success conditions was written that trumped what the scenarios themselves said for prestige

As well as roll counter 20's to try to make the monsters roll 1?. I have some late middle school/early high school players wanting to do pathfinder. Problem is the modules I want to do are mostly hard stuff, so I'm trying to find ways to ensure their characters survive.

While I agree with the above that PFSs might not be the best for you, don't sell your middle schoolers short:

I've had 5th graders at my tables at PFS with the best character at a level 11 table when everyone else in the group is adults. And he did everything for his character after level 2 himself. (he has now started GMing)

I think if you start with a few season 0 scenarios so they get a feeling on how to play, that may help. You say that the scenarios you want to run are hard. Which ones are you looking at? Maybe we as a community can help you develop a schedule which will allow your players to learn the ropes and advance their characters so they can survive the challenge.

One thing that I did: Its sometimes hard to get a group to join up. if you get a backstory for the characters you might want to try something like I did in my first post of my play by post here and lead that into the meeting with Zellara. It gives Zellara a more mystical feeling which foreshadows her history for the parties second meeting with her a bit.

It also gives them a reason to tell that Zellara is someone who knows a lot of the city to pull them out of various parts of the city and bring them together. Meaning when she tells them of the issues happening throughout in the city they may feel the 'sting of betrayal' but still want to investigate... This also helps because it gets them to keep the deck on them until its needed
