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!!! :)

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! :)

I ordered the Darklands Flip Mat... why has this not shipped yet?? I did not select it to be shipped with my next subscription order or anything yet it is being held back??

I was expecting to get this before this Friday (Feb 14th) and it should have been easily if it was shipped at the time of the order. I NEEDED this for a convention this weekend!!!

I am really upset :(

I was just wondering if the Holiday Discount for one item stacks with the Adventure Path Discount too? Also if it does/doesn't can either be used on a case of Wrath of the Righteous Miniatures??

Grand Lodge

Does this stack with the pathfinder advantage discount by chance "if" you had the adventure path subscription before this sale started?? I figured I should ask :)

Thanks!! :D

I have always struggled with both the amount and actual information to give the players when they ask for a knowledge check on creatures.

Now now I use these! :)

(Paizo Site)
Bestiary 1
Bestiary 2

(RPGNow Site)
Bestairy 1 on RPGNow with a good preview of it underneath the picture of the actual product :)
Bestiary 2 on RPGNow with a preview at the bottom of the picture of the product

The above links are of the Monster Knowledge PDF's not the actual Bestiarys by Paizo. and these are Pathfinder Specific :)

I know this may sound like an advertisement but actually I am curious as to what YOU as a GM do for their players and as Players what you EXPECT for information from the GM. Specifically with PFS tables and events in mind?

I have to ask this here because it is a PFS player/character that is doing this. He has a small air elemental familiar and he uses it to move him around using the air elemental's whirlwind ability. I had him take damage from the elemental when he used it with me but here is what he was doing for specifics.

He would move his speed of 30' and then the air elemental would pick him up in his Whirlwind and move another 100'. He would try and make attacks once the creature put him down.

Would it be wrong to use this as an attack on the players character? And when he got put down he would be prone?? Also according to the description of the Whirlwind he can not see beyond 5 feet either and anything with in 5 feet would have concealment and he would not threaten either right?? Not to mention the familiar could take damage from being attacked as well if I am not mistaken?? Would the character be able to be picked up after he has moved and then move an additional 100' with the actual familiar? AND then after make an attack??

I am asking because the player is known for doing things like this alot. I would rather get an official answer before I have to debate/argue with this player over the rule specifics of this.

Also but he is a ninja/monk and has taken the improved familiar feat... and picked this up as a familiar.. does he NEED to have the ability to get the actual familiar first BEFORE taking this feat?? Or can he just take the feat and get a familiar??

This has happened in a PFS game and while I know it is rule specific I thought that in order to get an official ruling IN PFS about this I should post it here. In my home game I know how I would handle this... but this is not a home game so to speak so I am asking here.

Thanks for the answers in advance folks!! :)

I was just wandering why FGG is not participating in the sale on all things PDF Pathfinder that is going on right now? I was SO prepared to buy The Slumbering Tsar AND Rappan Athuk :(

What I would love to see is a Flip-mat addition for Adventure paths only. For instance you have your normal flip mats and then the adventure path flip mats. As mentioned above have a flip mat set with 4 to 8 double sided flip mats in it that comes out after all 6 books are released. This would be a HUGE buy. especially if the flip mat set had increased size flip mats :)

This I would buy as would any and I do mean ANY adventure path subscriber as you would get some from the normal flip mat line to purchase them :)

Now as much as I would LOVE to keep the actual Beginners Box you shipped me... I thought that I would point out that you shipped me that instead of the Beginners Box Miniatures instead.

So the mistake made here is that I ordered the Beginners Box Miniatures and received the Actual beginners box instead which is a product that costs considerably more then the miniatures set themselves does.

Wondering what you would like me to do. I DO still NEED the miniatures though and would like to receive them.

Thanks!!

I was looking at this order to see if it had been shipped as of yet as I had placed an order for the Basic Box set miniatures. It lets me place the order and says nothing about being out of print or stock of any kind on the product page but it is telling me that it is:

• Pathfinder Beginner Box Heroes Miniatures Set
WizKids/NECA
This product is out of print.

Does this mean that it is not going to be shipped to me??

I was wondering why there is an Unavailable tag on this? Instead of "Available Today"?

I am planning on running this this weekend and my players have already made plans to attend to the point of breaking some vacation plans to play it. Because of the boon they have been prevented from playing their characters for over a month now and really want to play this! :)

Please let me know as soon as possible so I can let my players know and hopefully not tick them off if it is not going to happen?

Thank you.

This is a question from the scenario Rebels Ransom.

Spoiler about a certain creature's power in it.:

Evil Eye (su) Three times per day, a
sea hag can cast her dire gaze upon
any single creature within 30 feet.
The target must succeed on a DC 14
Will save or be staggered as strange
nebulous distress and a gnawing
sense of impending doom plagues
the victim. If a sea hag uses her evil
eye on someone already afflicted
by this curse, the victim must
make a DC 14 Fortitude save or be
overwhelmed with fright and collapse into
a comatose state for 3 days. Each day that
passes, the comatose victim must
make a DC 14 Fortitude save or
perish. The evil eye is a mind-affecting fear effect. The save
DCs are Charisma-based.
Evil Eye Curse: Gaze—failed
save; save Will DC 14; frequency
1/day; effect staggered (or fall comatose if already under the
effects of the evil eye).

Now I had this cast on me and I failed the first initial saving throw and obtained the "curse," I was staggered. What happened, happened after the fight on the way back from the temple/crypt of the mummy. It took us 7 days to arrive there and it took us equally long to get back. I had to make several saving throws during this time. The first one (will save) I made, the second one I failed. I am now comatose. So now I have to make a fortitude save, I made the first made the second and third. I am no longer comatose. I have to make another will save and failed. I now am comatose once again. I have to make another saving throw of the fortitude variety and fail it... now I am DEAD!

Now my question is.. the wording for the text of the evil eye is pretty benign. There is nothing in it that says that I can see through going through the adventure and the bestiary and any where else I can read and finding nothing out about it.
If I were to go comatose and then survive the initial onslaught of the saving throws for said comatose. Is it over with? Does it continue like this until we get a remove curse going? Is there any other way of getting rid of it?

All I can honestly say is that I am not pleased with this adventure at the moment. It seems like the writer has something against fighters of low will saving throw folk. It is 7 days BACK to the area where we can call civilization and it killed two of us and we easily handled the fights only to die by something that we had to roll over and over and felt like we were actually set up to fail. Being a fighter I have a low saving throw for Will Saves and unless I take some kind of feat to increase it somehow or have a buff spell cast on me before hand I am likely not going to make the save. especially when it involves several rolls at once. Now on the other hand I have a +9 on fortitude saving throws and managaed to fail it with a 5 + 9 = 14 (tier 8-9) advanced sea hag DC for the Evil Eye is a 16 DC.

This scenario killed two of us from a frustrating situation that made us feel essentially useless and virtually helpless. I am surprised I did not loose more people from our party because of this but they had better saving throws then I did.

Does this sound reasonable?

Sorry about the length and rant of it folks.. I just needed to get this out. Thanks for listening.!!

I ran Midnight Mauler at my event almost two months ago here in MN and have yet to get the chronicle sheets for this scenario. The players and GM have all been patient but I am running out of things to tell them.

Is this going to be posted with the actual scenario soon?
I have been downloading it on a regular basis and have yet to see the chronicle sheet included with the scenario and I am kind of disappointed that this is not taken care of yet.
Can we make this a priority?

Anyone got any good apps for GMing PFS with an Android tablet? I am curious. I would love an app that lets me track initiative easily.. sort of like the Game Mastery pad does? Just add the name (not all the information for the characters and the like), initiative they rolled, and ready/delay actions. Maybe a space for tracking damage to the creatures?

Any other apps would be great too!!

Thanks!!

hoping for some good suggestions!

What initiative tracker do you use on a tablet during gaming? I was looking for one that is like the game mastery initiative tracking pad. I would really like something like that.

I would LOVE to see both be implemented in Pathfinder online but what I do not want to see personally and hopefully is when one gets balanced it is done for both types of play.

Guildwars did this best. If a class gets balanced because they are more powerful in PvP they balanced it, but they left it alone in the PvE realm of play. In this way if the code for a PvP class was changed nothing was changed for that same class in PvE. By doing this it gave the PvE casual player that did not want to do any PvP except for maybe casually if at all, was not affected by class balancing issues from something they had nothing to do with at all. Not mention what may be balanced in PvP does not work in PvE at all nor should it.

Pathfinder the RPG the classes are not as balanced for dueling as they could be and I for one love this. Pathfinder RPG is not that type of game. If I wanted that I would be playing more 4th edition then I have been, where the classes there are more cookie cutter and not as fleshed out as they could be in comparison to Pathfinder is and does.

I am not a PvP player immediately but I do enjoy it once in a while. I would rather not see duels and the like but realize this is part of an MMO and should be voluntary im my humble opinion and keep the classes PvE balanced then. If you as a player want PvP then accept that there will be changes because one group of people are saying the rogue is WAY to powerful now and that they should be "nerfed" because they are almost always one shotting me as a Paladin. this leads to the flavor of the month type of builds and implementing class balance issues and leads to problems ultimately in PvE because the Rogue was meant to be as strong as all that and fits in to the traditional grouping of classes in a PvE type setting.

I hate the Flavor of the month PvP builds and Nerfing them because of the "this class is more more powerful then this class, This class should be nerfed because it can one shot my previous month's flavor of the month build that PvP usually leads to.

PvE should be left separate! :) Let the flavors of the month build be kept separate PLEASE! :)

I have about 7 sets of map Packs (adding more this weekend) and I bring them back and forth to my GM sessions with Pathfinder Society and my home game (played at another household)... what I am wondering is.. how do you store them so they can be used at a moments notice and carried back and forth without mixxing them up bending them in some way and yet keeping their integrity so we know which pack they came from so they can be put back in to the same pack they came from??

Any ideas?

I use one gallon zip lock baggies but they are bulky and to be honest.. a very clunky solution to what I would like to have be a neat one.

Also when you have them on the table, how do you keep them from coming apart?? :)

Thanks!

I have some players that have not played part 3 of the Devil we know series and this coming week we are running part 4. Can they still play it?? If so then they can't play part 3 ever for that character?? or Can they??

Can I get an official statement on how as a coordinator I should handle this? We run a weekly event and have about 10-20 players a week playing and some come once every other week... so I am curious and need to know how and what I should do for players that have played parts 2, and want to still do part 4? Any maybe even later play part 3 & 1?

I ordered the Tome of Horrors for my friend and he was wondering if I could put his PDF on a CD for him... but I can't find HIS PDF in my Downloads section.

His order number is 1798528 and his Name is Jeffery Sjurseth.
Can you email it to me if it can't be put in my downloads page with his digital mark on it?

I want it to be official for him and to protect my name by not giving him mine. (he does not have a computer and is not very tech savvy so I figure if something should go wrong and he accidently puts it on the wrong computer some how... my name will not be involved then)

This making sense?

I am having a serious problem in downloading two of the PDF's I need for this weekend. Normally I could wait until this gets worked out but well I need to prep for running Pathfinder Society Sunday and one of the PDF's is what I need.

I was wondering as a Witch Character at 7th level, I am eligible for the Psuedodragon Familiar now. I was wondering why would I want to get rid of the fox for this when I get a +2 on reflex and supposedly nothing in the way of benefit for my character on getting the Psudeodragon then.

I barely get better attacks and the like but I would still get the same attack bonuses and AC as well as Hit Points.

I was wondering about the creatures listed in this scenario as to being 3.5 edition and not Pathfinder RPG?

DO we convert them?

creatures spoiler:
There is a quickling listed and that is in the Bestiary 2 so that is already converted. But with that being said there is a Atomie and a Unseelie listed in there too, so I would be very unsure as to what to use for them for conversion or replacement.

I got this scenario as it was listed as official for PFS in the buy scenarios (or so I assumed) and then it turns out it is completely in 3.5? What should I do?

1) Are you a Pathfinder Society player here in MN??
2) Would you travel periodically to the Twin Cities if you do not live there for a Pathfinder Society Event??
3) Do you Run your own events??
4) Do you have a local game store that runs a periodic Pathfinder Society event at all?
5) Do you wish they would if they don't?
6) Can you name the store with contact information?
7) Would you want to do a Pathfinder Society Gameday at all?
8) Would you want to do a single Pathfinder Society game/event?

Sorry to be so nosy, but I am just so curious as to the members in this area and what they are about. I would love to travel a little to attend various Pathfinder Society events too.

If you would rather just answer question 1 and not the others that is cool too and I do not mind.

I read in the promotional guide for promoting your own events that about 30 scenarios a year are released. Then going to the purchase area for them I am seeing about 71 total. Is 30 a year a realistic figure in the present or is it basically a wishful figure? I know that PFS is fairly young and still growing but I just want to make sure.

We will be running 6 tables of PFS at The Source. This is going to be a Weekly event until we either run out of people that want to participate or a natural disaster happens :)

We want to open this up to anyone that is able to play that wants to. The Source has been generous enough to sponsor this and I more then happy to coordinate the event for them. This event will be running on any given Sunday except for May 8th, That weekend is out because of Free Comic book day and at the Source that is their busiest weekend for some reason hehe. Other then that we will book it for as long as we can.

I was able to add the Adventure Path subscription finally after being pretty persistent and clicking on any link I could find with the subscription.
Also are the map folios PART of the subscription??
But I have a question about shipping though. With Standard shipping it is going to cost me $5 something to ship to my home but with First class USPS shipping it costs nothing to ship to my home?? Is this right? If so why/what is the difference, is it in the amount of days or something?

I pre-ordered the Game Mastery condition Cards twice. Once in the order listed above and another more recent order. Can the condition cards listed in the order listed above be canceled? (But not the downloaded items I ordered though :))

I am seeing more and more threads with class vs class and "Why is this class so weak" or "This class is SO overbalanced and it is not fair"

I always thought that this game was about a group dynamic and not about an individual? I think that with the onslaught of the MMO that people are obsessed with character balance in a game where it should not apply. If this was a game about Player vs Player then I would concede the point but we do not fight each other (at least in most games I have played since 1974). As a group we fight evil (or good if you are so inclined) not each other. So why is this forum so obsessed with PC balance?

There is no one class that is more powerful then another if we as a group could use the skills that the character brings to the group, right? It is about the group. Is it more fun to play some powerful character, sure? Is it more fun to have more kills then some, sure. But this is not about balance. A Fighter is not going to be fighting a wizard one on one typically. A fighter in a group might see a wizard in a tower and decide as a group that they need to get rid of it and so as a group go to eradicate it. This is not a one on one type of fight though. Each character brings something to the group individually and make each more powerful as a group instead of an individual.

If the game was not about groups then I would again concede that there would need to be balance between the characters, but this is NOT the case either. Besides if there was ever a need for almost a perfect balance of equality between classes then I could suggest another game from another company that has balanced their classes much like an MMO would.

I guess I am just sick and tired of hearing that a rogue is the worst character in the game... or wizard is way to powerful, or some such. But lets face facts here. If the wizard were to go in to a fight alone against a well thought out group then said wizard no matter the tactics the wizard uses would likely die. A rogue brings with it nuances that no other character can achieve but on the same token a group could live with out any one class but no class should be with out a group or thought of as an individual class when building it. A player should always think of the group they are playing with when building their character, it is that group that will help in the end to help you as a character survive in the long run.
