just wanted to make you aware that the hard plastic hanger on the flipmat damaged the AP cover in the March shipment it looks like it bent foreward, and the corner where the inside goes round made a slight (around 1/10 of an inch) tear in the cover, and was still stuck in the tear when I opened the mailer.
Since today is the street day for RotRL minis, and it is 12:30AM I was able to tear into a case at midnight:
# Name Number
For those counters, one pack had 5 characters in it (2 Ameikos)
Connecticon (http://connecticon.org/) will be held July 13-15 2012 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT. A number of venture officers from the north-east, and Mike Brock himself are scheduled to be there.
In addition to running PFS, some of the venture-officers are going to be running panel discussions, and there will be laptops running Herolab and a printer available to allow you to quickly make a PFS character if you do not have one yet. Come on down and play, listen to panels, enjoy the dealers, movies, costumes, anime, or whatever else you're into!
Current lineup of PFS events in no particular order *:
As you can see, there is a large number and variety of scenarios offered, so come on over and play!
*Note: not all of these will be run at each slot. The calender on the con's site does have a listing of what is being offered at which time.(at least for Fri/Sat, I'll check up on why nothing is showing for Sunday)
My group decided they didn't trust the guards at the begining of the game, and paid a shiver den to keep Lamm in a stupor for a few months and forgot about him. Then they negotiated with the Spider King at Eel's End instead of fighting (they brought spiders the druid had trained to fight as entertainment, plus a few games of knivesies, and a 32 diplomacy check). But they mentioned to one of the guards there that thy were the ones who had taken Lamm out, and that he was drugged somewhere.
Fast forward to the end of 7 Days to the Grave, they remembered about Lamm and went to check on him.... finding out that the spider king, as the supplier of shiver, easily found Lamm, and took him back to Eel's End. Now they are pissed and want to storm the area, but are level 6 and would walk all over Dervago and Lamm... How would you beef these 2 up for an encounter with 5-6 level 6 characters? From the sounds of it, they currently plan on heading that way as soon as they finish up at the hospice.
has anyone seen the Prophets of Science Fiction series on the science channel? I was wondering if anyone know if any Planet stories authors where going to be presented. (the only two episodes I can find are Mary Shelly and Arthur C Clark and Philip K Dick is coming out this coming Wednesday... I have all three set to tape on wednesday... also thought the PS community might be interested in the series
Personally, I've always had a soft spot for adventures that showcase the pleasure activities of the area - be it gambling, knivesies, blood pig....
While reading the Inner sea world guide information on the Donkey rat I had a adventure idea I though was really interesting. What if someone was opening a high end restaurant/tavern in a city, but didn't really like the aristocrats and politics of nobility. They get help from the PCs to go hunt creatures like the donkey rat, that are tasty, but frowned upon. As the PCs level, they can be contacted to hunt creatures for the restaurant's 'specials'. Who else is going to harvest enough cockatrices to serve a city's nobility for a week? You know the queen just asked if we could serve red dragon steaks at her coronation, and the PCs are the only ones who can hunt down a red dragon.
Normally hunting these things a lot would put you behind the wealth table... but they're selling the meat back to the resturant
When going to make a purchase, I noticed that my credit card that I have used fro every single purchase on this site is no longer selectable. poking around, I found it is still in the subscriptions area, just not when I click the select payment method button during checkout. I know it was there last month when I bought Tome of Horrors....
I had a opportunity to use a boon that I had earned in a previous scenario this past week, but forgot I had it. I know there are some bette web designers than me out there - is it possible to create a webpage that you can check off the boons you have/allowing you to output your boons to a single page - maybe the names next to checkboxes and a submit button, and it loads a page with the full text of the boon, thus not telling users what module they are from, so that people can't metagame for them?
Ready Player One is defiantly an interesting book. MMO and Sci-FI and lots of 80s references (including lots of D&D ones)! I'm about 1/2 way through, and its a great read so far. Note the link if for the audiobook version, which is read by Will Wheaton and he does a pretty good job
Sorry to be a hound (no pun intended) but I'm going to ask again.. would it be possible to include art used in the webfiction into the CUP the same way the art from the Blog is? Last time I asked people said they were going to look into it... but that was a few months ago and I haven't heard anything.
Oh, and thanks!
Ok, I have a question about miniatures that have more than once piece. Do people usually paint them before gluing/pinning them, or after? or does it depend on how hidden the area around the other parts are? or how well it looks like the two pieces will connect?
I was thinking while I was thumbing through Vaults of Madness today, that I had no idea what the articles section had in it. Then I started thinking back, and relized why.. previous to kingmaker, there were 2-3 blog posts about an adventure path, one of the adventure (latly this has been covered as awesome art previews) and one on the articles in the back half of the book. I think that with Kingmaker the fact that the back half was lots of crunch to fit the front half, and this made it harder to talk about the articles... Now that we are back to setting based articles that are less crunchy, could we go back to doing a overview of the article section of the APs in the blog once in a while?
wow that was long winded.
I accidentally deleted the email with my tracking number on it for UPS shipment... so I went into the account order history to look for it there, and once again it appears that the tracking numbers aren't appearing there. I know they've come and gone in recent months, so I wasn't sure if this was on purpose or not, so I thought I'd bring it up
The Pathfinder Chronicles minis are very hard to find on the Pathfinder page, or on the products by paizo page in the store... it took me 20 minute of going through the big links before I found them (and that was knowing that they are there, those who don't know them, wouldn't even really get down to that little textdown at the bottem..
Edit: sorry on the title - I started writing this before I found the link on the bottom of the page
From the spoilers posted from the fiction seminar @ PaizoCon:
"Reaper will also be releasing a special limited edition Varian Jeggare miniature at GenCon to commemorate the release of "Prince of Wolves.""
Is this still on the schedule? I don't see it mentioned elsewhere on either the paizo site or the reaper one.... I need to know if I'm giving people money to pick one up. If it is happening will it be at the paizo booth or the reaper one?
Is it spelled Rechiends plains(as the map on the inside cover has it) or Rechand's Plains (as it is on page 17) or are these actually 2 different plains?
Since page 28 also mentions it is as Rechiend's Plains (same as the map). I'm going to guess that is the correct spelling?
Using Doug Doug's list of maps, I have made a Paizo List of the flip mats and map packs used thus far. Hope the link works correctly. Feel Free to email me at e(dash)gendron(at)charter(dot)net for anything I missed or to update it with the most recent scenarios.
Where would I put them? Thinking of adding them to a wandering monster table or specific encounter. They are too fun, considering that none of my players are really into the setting yet (I'm slowly converting them from 3.5) maybe some pugwampi will infest the palace sewers following Gnoll assassins or something? Any other thoughts?
just and FYI - the ink for the dark brown on the top outside of my Mother of Flies looks like it was folded before it was dried completly... some of the pages were slightly stuck together in that corner.I separated them all without anything ripping, so no harm done, just wanted to give you guys a heads up, in case other copies are stuck worse than mine.
PS Cos - sorry I haven't been helping much on these boards lately, my real work has been busy :)
I'm scheduled to run Devil you know part 3 for 2 groups on Sat, I just wanted to make sure this months senarios are going to come out as scheduled tomorrow. Since I know it's normally done on the last Wed (which would be today), I wanted to make sure that I didn't have to look for another scenario that none of the 13 or so players have played yet.
Thanks Josh et all
ok... I'm thinking of doing a listing for minis in PFS play list, now that we have the list feature, but I have a couple questions on how people would like this to work. Would people like one list with just the names of things, or a separate list for each scenario? If the first, do you want to have the scenario title listed in the comments of the list, or just the name of the character/creature? Should it be concentrated on minis under $10 from paizo? under 10 ebay prices? no price restriction? If I use reaper or other non-painted minis, should i also try to provide a prepainted mini for that person/creature?
I hope to start the list(s) over the weekend.
hey guys i just ordered 1214354 and have 2 questions:
1) it looks like the PF advantage was only taken off the first poster.
2)is there any way to ship the two posters in one tube?
Thanks - Cap
Yesterday I called right before my CC was auto-activated today and asked about my sidecart that was stuck. Sara Marie told me to email customer service when I got home and activated the new card. I did but the first two times it came back (I think I made a typo, retyped the address and it seemed to work) Just wanted to make sure the email got through
Hi Sara Marie just wanted to say welcome to the customer service team! You'll see me and some of the other regular posters trying to help triage some of the 'regular' issues before you guys get to them (or get in) so I just wanted to introduce myself!
PS if I missed a welcome thread somewhere feel free to move/delete
I was looking on Amazon this morning, and on top of the 5 star review of the core book, it ranks:
Amazon.com Sales Rank: #460 in Books (See Bestsellers in Books)
Popular in these categories: (What's this?)
right now I have 4 players playing 5 characters we are using beta rules until about Oct and then switching to final rules, I am using the critical hit an fumble decks. Current party is:
They are level 3 and almost done edge of anarchy... I'm not against running people throughwho know whats happening as long as you try to keep OOC knowedge and IC knowledge to yourselves.
you can either reply here or email me at e(dash)gendron(at)charter(dot)net I'm looking for up to 3 players, 4 if someone wants to take over the cleric.
random question, are all of the monsters in the Bestiary going to defiantly show up in Golarion at some point or another, or are there some that may just not fit any specific area of the world? just checking that they were needed before we started adding all these new entries to the wiki
anyone have any tips on running the shingle chase on a play by post, my players are about 3 rounds away from busting into Trina's flat, and I fear that waiting for people to post will bog the game down (much like all the world's meat last fight took almost a month).
was reading This article today and my first thought was "color guard members should be proficient in clubs/maces/and possibly polearms" which got me thinking to other professions and their tools. Many exotic weapons were originally farmer's tools.
I know it would cause issues with balance but should professions grant proficiency with the tools of their trades?
