Huge creatures such as huge Dragons, Elementals and Giants. Dead bodies. Swarms that are flat.

Can Mr Selinker or Mr Wertz care to do a video walk through playing "On the Horizon" for us "newer" players to Skull and Shackles. The ship seems to cause a lot of confusion especially the rules about anchored/docked and moving and commanding the ship. Also how does a "player" acquire more ships too. Playing through using the "On the Horizon" scenario I think would be a good one to do because it is a difficult one and it shows the complexity of Skulls and Shackles off quite well. :) It will also show off Guild play too well. :) And what to do at the end as far as rewards and "upgrading" the deck.

Would you mind?

Thank you either way!! :)

Chris, for the retailers is Paizo still shipping out a free S&S Base set at all? I am only asking as I would like to mention this to my FLGS :)

Thank you! :)

Indeed they are; just this past week I helped one of our FLGSs order theirs, and they have previously stated that the free base set should be good until the next season starts.

So you are saying that the store has to physically order it?? If so how do they do that?? Where??

Katina, It still shows the "Ants" on backorder. (For Order 3318773 ) I do not want ANYTHING to slow the order down and would rather pull the ants out for now and wait on them, then when they arrive ship the "Ants" then, and ship the rest of the order without the ants? Also is there any break I can get on shipping or something or even expedited service for the length of time I was waiting on the "pending" order of the Ants, Tentacles and Amiri?

(expedited as in shipping as quickly as possible like "Thursday? :D)

Thanks for anything you can do!! :)

I was hoping to take "one" of the items from Order 3123288 in my cart and then combine it with a pending order in my cart Order 3304558

The item I want out of the 3123288 order is "Pathfinder Battles—Shattered Star: Amiri, Human Barbarian" and then combine it with the 3304558 order so they ship together.

Leaving the back order Ants and Tentacles to stew until they arrive once again at Paizo. Even though the 3123288 order has been pending for months.

Hope this makes sense and I also hope it does not slow the order down any?

Thank you!!

Gregory,
The best thing to do if you ever have a problem with a GM or another player is not always to walk away or even complain. But it should be to go and speak to your coordinator for the event. If it IS the coordinator of the event then speak to your local VC or one of the VL's for your area... or other officer if available.

if they are not able to handle the situation or you have an issue with one of them... then speak to Mike Brock.

By coming here and speaking out to us is a good way to rant but it can also be a catalyst to a lot of issues in your area and can honestly hurt peoples feelings that you are speaking about. While no names were mentioned. It seems like it was pretty obvious who it was by a few postings. Being he was a new GM too... might mean he will not GM again because of your post and that would be a shame. I am not saying you are doing anything wrong but there are better ways.

I would hate to see a new GM stop GMing and or even stop playing because he/she is to ashamed to do so again from lack of confidence. The coordinator or local VC can mollify the situation immediately and hopefully with good results for all concerned :)

Again I am not accusing you of doing anything wrong. Just some advice going in to the future is all :)

Good Luck sir.

Paizo does seem like it has learned important lessons from the past and IMO has been very smart about their strategy. It will be interesting to see what they do if the demand for their new books decreases significantly due to over-saturation.

I can't see over saturation for a long time yet :)

I have personally reached the "no more rulebooks" stage with Pathfinder. Unchained will probably be my last. I have enough rules to last a long time. I will still continue buying the APs that look interesting but I do wonder if, between 5e and people feeling like they have enough Pathfinder rules, a downturn is inevitable.

To early to tell but I doubt that 5E will affect Pathfinder or Paizo all that much at the moment. I will still continue to support Pathfinder personally as will my wife.

I am mildly interested in 5E but not so much I am going to rush out and buy every single thing that they put out. I was bit hard by 4E and because of that and how WotC handles their customer service... I am very hesitant on buying in to them once again. I also think I am not the only one that is thinking this way. I have spoken to many people I know and they feel the same way. They are not buying in to it fully. So the fan base I personally think is still a bit fractured and if WotC truly wants to try and heal that fracture, I do not think that at the moment 5E is the answer for it. At least not for the foreseeable future.

It is way to difficult to compare TSR to Paizo of today. The Market is completely different.

I am thinking they will come back in to production. 5 days to go and 76K is not to bad. With the last minute push a lot of Kickstarters tend to get, makes me very hopeful :)

Hehehe. (To everyone) So please please support this. It is well worth it. You might have seen them at Gen Con. I think you will like them a lot.

Besides you probably know someone that has already supported it so you do not want to be left out when they got something cool and you don't. Imagine going to a con with these all done up and predrawn and NOT have to worry about your mats getting stained because the marker was left on to long.

Think about it and then go and support it! :)

John and Mike,
Is there ANYWAY that someone can stay on top of the release dates. This has caused problems before and now this one is showing it should be released and if someone were to schedule this for a game day even (with 6+ tables) then they would not be able to run this. This is unfortunate as it would be fun to run!!
It could potentially screw their schedules up not to mention their potential GM's when they are expecting it.

I know this is a Gen Con event as well was it was for Paizo Con.. but it does say it was released Wed, Jul 30th.
I am not upset but I can see the potential problems have been through them before not to long ago :)

I am sure Sean remembers signing it at one point and giving bubble text to the character drawing in there at Gen Con 2000 :) (Maybe he doesn't as his memory is not as good as it used to be and he might not remember his WizO_Kip (TSRO_Kip) :)

For those that do not know what Tact-Tiles are.. they are awesome!! They are a modular Wet and dry erase gaming surface... sort of like a Chessex map meets Paizo Flip-Mat married in to a puzzle like surface surface that is awesome to say the least. When the company went out of business awhile ago (This is NOT the same company) The Tact-Tiles sold for a small fortune on Ebay and still do, that is IF you could find them even.

Now they are coming back better then ever and by a new company.

I know there have been many many people on these forums that have wanted to see these come back in to existence.. It is in it's first day of the Kickstarter.. so lets back it up!!! :)

Go to TACT-TILES Kickstater page..

Brell I can understand being a bit bitter... but being vindictive is not always a good thing either. I have bought cases of each of the Pathfinder Miniatures and I agree that while not all have been painted to my satisfaction, I am not worried that they will not show well on the table when I am using them.. yes I even got one of the bad Feiya miniatures and have had people STILL want her too as one of their figures and or to use her on the table.

I am not saying don't be upset or even telling you what to do at all. But being vindictive is never usually the answer at all. Either way I wish you luck sir!

Vic I am actually disappointed Con of the North (Feb) here in MN was not able to get any promo cards for the ACG RotRL for it earlier this year despite the fact I emailed someone about it several times before the convention :(

I was trying to promote the card game as much as possible at the Pathfinder Society event we had going on there the entire weekend. I was even able to get several card games going too. :(

I you love it, why are you bothered they are taking actions to ensure they earn money to continue making great products?
I'm not. I understand that as a business, they have the full right to do any sort of Money-Grabbing scheme they want, and it's my choice whether I choose to support it or not. I just refused to believe that a company this awesome would sink to such a level.

The fact that you call it a "Money Grabbing Scheme" is the problem I have. No company that produces product and then uses it in their game and furthers their own product through it to me is not a scheme.. nor money grabbing. I know you are ok with Paizo promoting their own product and such. But you have to realize it is basic marketing practice when a company does produce their products they are going to do their best to promote their product and try and get you as a consumer to use them as much as possible.

Mike Brock put it succinctly though in that they are trying to get it so that the GM does not have to use 3 different rules systems for the same thing. Speaking as one of those GM's I am grateful for that as I do personally do not want to use 3 different systems where 1 will suffice. So having to make sure the person using a harrowing deck actually has one made by Paizo.. I do not have a problem with it.

So I do not see this as a a company "sinking" to a level but as a marketing practice like any other company. But also as a rules consolidation for which I am grateful. Any company that does this though is not sinking to a level. A company that you have a "need" of their product and actually can not live without and then forces you to pay more and more for said product is scamming you. But a company that gives you a choice to use their products and you whether you choose to do so or not is your choice but not a scam. Just an FYI... I know a rather long winded one. Sorry :)

I know in my area it is almost possible to do 10 events before Aug 14th for doing that... but why would you? To me it is a circumvention of the rules and a work-around. I just don't get why someone would feel the need to do something like this just to get what they want "within" the rules because they "can"

Grand Lodge *****

It has always been drilled in to my mind that when GMing you should run it as it is written. As some have mentioned here that when running a scenario, even a difficult one, that there are certain things that need to be done via the tactics and what the creature is and should do. If it is not ran that way what happens is that the players come to certain expectations and eventually they WILL have a bad experience when a GM tells them they can't do it that way because the creature/tactics or special circumstances do not allow for it to happen. It is not fair for that player.

If we all ran each scenario with kid gloves then that is one thing but because we as GM's are human we have to take some of the human factor out of the equation. By following the rules of the game and the ones in the scenario itself. It is a hard line but it is consistent and if we ALL did it then the players are less likely to complain about something that happened later on in the game and they think it unfair. But it is part of the rules and it DID happen. There is no breech of confidence as the rules were followed. It is when the rules are not followed that things start to become unfair. Players and GM's need consistency. If a player does something less then smart, a a GM says that there could be consequences and even goes so far as to say what those consequences are... and the players STILL decides to do the action, then the player lives by the die roll and suffers the consequences should they occur.

With newer players they need to know this is a game where there is life and death decisions to be made in the game. Make bad choices or come totally unprepared... then you might die. There are various clues that can be had for any given scenario that you as a player might play. Some of the more popular ones I have seen used, The name of the scenario "Day of the Demon" is a big clue, The blurb that comes WITH the scenario to introduce the scenario to the players often contains some clue as to what might expect in the encounter. Another clue that one might get is through questions of the GM during the actual introduction blurb. Often there is a Q&A section that can happen to allow the players a chance to find out further clues. There is also a chance for knowledge rolls as well to find out another further chance for information or clues. With all the above it is not the GM's job to softball any of the scenario as then it is unfair for the GM's after you that follows the scenario you just ran. They would have to deal with the fallout from a softball scenario when they don't do it that way. To me that is the biggest travesty. We as GM's need to play it like it is written and let the dice fall where it might.

Feel sorry for the group if something happens.. do not rub it in and make it worse for the group should their character die. If it dies heroically make them feel heroic. If it dies in such a way where it comes down to a dice roll such as a bad roll on a climb check and they fall.. be remorseful for the player. But it is not up to us as GM's to softball it because the player is in the game to try and play the game by the rules and to live and die by their decisions. The GM should honor them by doing so as well. :)

Mike I can understand that... but it was on the schedule for release in June AND Friday night (tonight). Not realizing this was one of the 4 scenarios scheduled for Paizo Con I am left in a quandry for both my GM's and myself. Timing with the release date. First it was supposed to be Wed night... Then Friday... it gets released and then pulled and now I am out of luck and have to scramble to find a scenario no one has run before that is signed up. The GM's who are already upset with me because of the lateness of the release are having to scramble based on feedback from the people signed up for my event and then hopefully prep between then and Sunday Morning.

It affects quite a few people.. Apologies are welcome and I TRULY DO appreciate them. It just seems that I am in store for a huge headache this weekend.. as well as my GM's now :( What makes it worse is this was told a June release back in early May.

::sigh:: egads.. I am hoping it pours tomorrow and none of my GM's have plans to do anything and can prep a scenario on a real short notice :(

Mike... I have people signed up for this and based on the release date I should have been able to run this.. So now I have people signed up to play this on Sunday and I am going to have to tell them I can't. (running both 5-22 and 5-23). :(

I wish you had pulled it earlier or told us earlier then the day of the release and AFTER it was released at one point even at least so I could have planned it better and rescheduled something else. Now I have GM's and a headache trying to get something everyone has not played. I am upset about this from a coordinators point of view as this is just going to be a huge headache! So many people either not coming or wanting to play something they have not yet. :(

Imagine a gaming surface with touch screen capabilities and the ability to run most software for VTT's too. This is awesome and something to support and or even watch as it comes to fruition.

I for one am extremely excited about this.
Hopefully you guys will be to. I am wanting to use this for Pathfinder Society events. Imagine coming to the table to play PFS and see one of these there and your GM is running maps and such on there for you as a player!! I would be so so stoked! :)

Go to Game Changer - Virtual Tabletop Digital Gaming Surface Kickstarter..

If I am posting this in the wrong forum please feel free to delete this. Just trying to show PFS'ers that there is a cool option for maps and such for PFS coming out soon! :)
