Yes I checked with several venture captains and even a fewer higher up people. If the item is fully stated out in the chronical sheet, or it is a custom item in the chronical sheet, like a named item. Then you don't need the source. Otherwise everyone would have to own damn near every book.

Yes, this exactly how access works, as you have been told on this very thread. And, yes, many of us DO own damn near every book; items statted outbon chronicles are very much the exception.

Er, what do the inhabitants of Sayashto feel about somebody getting elected to the Council, and then buggering off back to the material?

I've got to ask now; does the "Oliphaunt of Jandelay" have anything to do with Nellie the Elephant, which includes the lines "The head of the herd was calling/Far, far away/They met one night in the silver light/On the road to Mandalay"?

How do you maintain the level of patience that you do?

Ordering a companion to perform a trick that they know is a free action, so there shouldn't be anything wrong, in my opinion, with shouting "trip", and then "attack"...

If I am running this for three players/characters they will effectively have 25% fewer social round actions to influence this in the senate (and anywhere else social rounds are used in the AP). Is this likely to cause a problem? Would I be better off adding enough extra rounds to account for the missing actions of the fourth character, or is there a "better" way?

What's peoples opinion on allowing a non-human to take the variant noble scion feat? Specifically an elf entering the Clement family...

It's a giant eagle (Bestiary page 118) with the "giant" template (not the "advanced" template) added.

Whilst seconding Tim's questions, I'd like to add another; Poog has a giant frog listed as his animal companion, but no stats are given, what should we do?

What's people's opinion on wearing bracers under (say) plate armour, and then being subject to an incorporeal attack?

Contact the GM that ran the game; if you don't know their name/details, contact your local Venture Captain.

Should using a certain minor runewell be considered an evil act? Or possibly a sinful one?

Pearls of power only work for prepared spellcasters.
Changing into an elemental causes all equipment to merge into your body.
This could be got around by drawing his bow and quiver and laying them on the floor before changing, then picking them back up and reslinging the quiver before taking off. But that's a lot of rounds to be, effectively, doing nothing in a fight, and will probably make him a sitting target.
Then you run into the issue about whether elemental actually have hands...

Grand Lodge

Is it me, or is encounter H3 in the fortress courtyard all sorts of screwed up?

A sorcerer, who for some reason has a pearl of power, elemental body IIing into an air elemental, then flying up and using a bow?

Ignoring the fact that 30 firearm bullets would sell for 15 gp, whereas creating them will cost a 15 gp wand charge plus 2 gp worth of lead...

Money making schemes are pretty much a no-go in PFS; it's a day job roll, and that's about it.

When you are reporting an adventure that grants a reputation bonus for a specific faction, what value goes into the reputation field on the reporting screen? The standard value (and the system adds the additional point as the box at the top is ticked) or the increased value?

Thanks.

I've always wondered something about the Obedience abilities, but have never been able to find it spelled out.

When do you pick which of the spell-like abilities you're going to have (i.e. the 3/day, 2/day, 1/day ones.)? When you gain the ability? When you perform the obedience that morning? Or, when you first want to use one of them that day?

Who's to say that the ruler doesn't just choose their regnal name when they ascend the throne? (It's certainly how it works over here; Queen Elizabeth's father took the title George VI despite his name being Albert.)

James, I'm after some Rise of the Runelords advice if I may? My players, being payers, have zigged rather than zagged, and

Spoiler:
on discovering Tsuto's notes about the forthcoming goblin attack, have chosen to stay and fortify Sandpoint rather than take the offensive
.

Usually I'd be OK with some nudging back to the main plot, but for two thirds of the players it's their first Pathfinder experience, and as such I want to let them have as much freedom as possible.

Any suggestions as to what "should" happen please?

Secondary question - Do I still need to be spoilering a ten year old story? :)

The change to the Ring isn't actually in the Campaign Clarifications document. I checked the web and PDF versions.
It looks like the Campaign Clarifications update hasn't gone live alongside the Additional Resources for some reason. I'll investigate.

Probably worth saying that even though both Campaign Clarifications and Additional Resources updated to the March '18 versions, neither of them contained references to the changes to the snowball spell.

Also, whilst your post says that it will note the changes within the People of the North section, you'll need to note it within Pathfinder Adventure Path #67 "The Snows of Summer" too, as that contained the spell and granted access too.

Didn't think to look there. Rule contradiction? Never. :)

I would disagree with this; I read it as the first three rounds give you increasingly accurate information on the area, culminating in knowing which items are magic. From that point on you wouldn't have to go through it all again for each item, just spend one round spellcrafting each.

The chronicles are only provided as part of the adventure it self, and in any case would be worthless unsigned etc by your GM.

If you've lost the Chronicle from a game, your best bet would be to contact the GM and ask if they can provide you with a replacement. If you don't know the GM in question, contact the venue/event organiser, or (next step up) the Venture Officer for the area.

Given his tacticsvalso say that he saves his pool for vampiric touch, he's not recasting it, and as you say, personal only.

The guild guide provides a list of effects that carry ove; I'm pretty sure that envenomed weapons aren't on it, but you should check.

Your BAB is the first number (in this case +7); the second number is there to indicate that you get an iterative attack, and what bonus to use for it.

I'm afraid that the only only counter I have is "where does it say to do that", sorry.

I believe that arcane/divine is the decider, rather than spontaneous /prepared, so as such they would need no rest.

Do you know if switching Return of the Runelords with the un-announced final first edition AP was considered, so that things could end with the last part of the trilogy?

My apologies, it was the incorporeal that caused the immumity; but my question stands.

Fair enough, but could someone tell me WHERE this rule is written? I've cross referenced everything that I can think of in the CRB and can find nothing that actually says it.

Quote:

MIRROR IMAGE 2

School illusion
Casting Time 1 standard action
Range personal
Duration 1 minute/level
This spell creates a number of illusory doubles of you that inhabit your square. These doubles make it difficult for enemies to precisely locate and attack you.
When you cast mirror image, it creates 1d4 figment images. These images remain in your space and move with you, mimicking your movements, sounds, and actions exactly.
Whenever you are attacked or are the target of a spell that requires an attack roll, there is a possibility that the attack targets one of your images instead. If the attack hits, roll randomly to see whether the selected target is real or a figment. If it is a figment, the figment is destroyed. If the attack misses by 5 or less, one of your figments is destroyed by the near miss, and an attack that misses you due to a miss chance also destroys an image.
Area spells and effects that don’t require an attack roll affect you normally and don’t destroy any of your figments. Spells with a range of touch are harmlessly discharged if used to destroy a figment.
An attacker must be able to see the figments to be fooled. If you are invisible or the attacker is blind, the spell has no effect. Blindsense doesn’t help distinguish the figments from the real you, but blindsight is sufficient to do so.

OK, so if someone is coming at me with the spell up, and I empty an automatic weapon into them, what happens?

If something is immune to crits, are they also immune to the effects of crits?

e.g. Undead are immune to crits, fair enough, no vitals to hit, but but would they still get burn damage from a crit from a laser?

Just wanted to quickly say well done to Thurston and Crystal; that was, by far, the BEST opening to an AP I have ever read.

Wizards, Magus's, Sorcerors, and Bards can add spells to the spell lists from other sources even if its not on their normal list or is a divine only spell. Is it possible for Druids, Rangers, Paladins, and Clerics to do the same then?

Generally divine spellcasters have all the spells is willing to allow on their "list", in as much as they don't have a spell book, they just prey for what they want.

Also, what makes you think that those arcane casters can add divine spells to their lists?
