Mad, might I ask if you showed up shortly before the game was supposed to start? That tends to be the most frequent time that new players show up, and in situations like that, I cant say I would handle it much differently.

Once the game was done, if the player was interested and time permitting, I would be more than happy to assist the new player in building their own character, but it definitely can be a LONG process.

If you showed up a half hour or so before the game was supposed to start, I dont really know why they couldnt have helped you work on a character then, even if it might not be ready to go in time.

As for building your first character, like others have said, just follow the OP Guide, and you should be fine. One thing to take into consideration if you just arent sure which way to go, is that as long as you havent played the character at level 2 yet, you can completely rebuild the character, so you wont be forced to stick with an option that you think isnt going to work out how you want it to.

Good luck with your character creation!

...or maybe you could, oh, I don't know, actually take an interest in the theme of the character instead of just treating it like numbers on a page. This is supposed to be a ROLE-playing game. If you think animal companions are intended to be disposable just because the designers didn't attach real penalties to losing one, you just don't "get it."

Sorry for the passive/aggressive, but IMO my response is nothing more than equal to this ridiculous commentary. YMMV

How about you let them play their character how they want to? Without the wongbadfun commentary.

There are plenty of people that use and bause animals for their best interest.

Me personally I enjoy a good steak now and then.

I may be reading too much into this, but just in case Im not...

Just an FYI, if thats an indication you would kill your companion for a meal cause you feel like having a steak, I would be marking it as an evil action on your chronicle sheet. Do it a second time, and Id mark the character dead for being evil.

Maybe the stores could offer 'lay-away' plans worked out with GM's who run at those stores all the time, and the players who WANT to get a good book, to be legal, but cannot plop down $30-40 bucks in a day just to play a game.

This is a good suggestion, but not one that is necessarily right for this conversation. That's something more of a store-by-store basis, and something youd need to discuss with them specifically. Paizo cant force the retailer to offer layaway, though Id imagine some stores would do it.

In this specific scenario, after you roll the will save and before the result of the save (fail or succeed) is determined, I would ask if you are happy with your roll. If I see hesitation, I will ask again.

I was specifically meaning that after you told me I failed my Will save against an illusion and then told me to make a Fort save, I would know what the result of failing that Fort save was likely going to be and have a good idea of whether or not I wanted to reroll the Fort save without you even asking.

As the target of the specific casting of Phantasmal Killer in question, let me break down for you how this exchange went.

Seth: I *do something*
Kristen: Give me a Will save.
Seth: *rolls* 21 if it was for a spell.
Kristen: It was. Are you satisfied with that roll?
Seth: I guess.
Kristen: Make me a Fort save.
Table: OH SHI...
Seth: *rolls* 22 since its a spell. Dont tell me if I made it or not yet, I might want to reroll.
*Seth is unsure for about 5 minutes while people laugh at me trying not to die*
Kristen: So do you want to reroll?
Seth: No? *physically shying away from her and wincing at my coming death*
Kristen: Ok, you made it.
Table: *laughter*

Disregarding the fact that she is my wife, she is one of the best GMs I have ever sat under. She does not go out of her way to kill PCs. She just wants to make you work for your victory, which is something all GMs should do.

Looks like the citation from page 38 clarified the ruling for out of tier chronicles to add GM credit as well allowing for the option to apply to a brand new level one character with the gold reduced to 500 for a scenario and 1398 for a module.

Slight correction: the character does not have to be brand new. It just has to be level 1.

I was under the impression that you could only apply a Chronicle to a 1st level character if you *played* as a pregen or in a Campaign Mode Adventure Path. I couldn't find where it says a GM can choose the "apply to an out-of-tier Chronicle" option to a level 1. The rational I've had is that you don't have near as much risk in applying credit to a level 1 as a GM as you would playing a pregen.

If there's a rule I'm missing though, I'd be interested to hear it.

As Sammy stated and Dylos reiterated, yes, the GM can do this. The GM can do all of the exact same things a player can with their credit now, which was updated, thankfully, with the updated Guide.

You can apply it to any character within range(3-5), or a character below the range, but they don't get anything until they level into the range.

The character you apply it to gets everything on the sheet that's applical for their level, including items found, and also including anything that might have been missed by the PC's that actually played it.

The only thing you don't get is a Day Job Roll.

Not entirely true. You can also apply it to a level 1 character and get 3xp, 4Fame/PP, 1398gp, and the item access and boons and get all of that right away.

If you apply it to a level 1-2 character and want to wait til 3 to get the full benefits, thats fine also.

One thing I wondered about the Paizo store there... and something is probably out of Paizo's control... but is there any way that Paizo could allow GMs (or at least GMs in tier 1 & 2) to get a chance to get into the store, maybe on Wednesday, or some other "off hours" time?

I know that, as scheduled, I had no time that I could get to the store given my schedule (when I was off, the store was closed)?

This is probably not at all a PFS question, but was just wondering... and hoping for next year.

I doubt it very much. Getting into the hall on Wednesday to shop is, I think, part of the Gencon VIG program, and people pay good money for that opportunity.

Now if it was a subscription pick up or something, then who knows, but I bet they wouldnt be allowed to sell anything, though it would definitely be nice.

The only mechanical benefit I can see with it is being able to loudly curse at people in a completely alien tongue. Of course, then they cast comprehend languages. And then I was in deep trouble.

Yes, but thats really just a more limited version of "I cure at them in my made up gibberish language." They dont know what it means. In this case it would actually be comprehend languageable, but the chances of an NPC doing that to you are probably pretty slim.

Do you mean you planned to run a 5-9 and instead had to do a 1-5? Cause otherwise Im confused on what this could mean, sticking within the PFS rules.

I do have a problem with that, which is why I have decided not to get involved (after locating the local games, talking to the folks that run it, buying the books, etc.).

I just want to play the regular game. I was looking for a way to get involved in playing without having to join a weekly group, since I don't currently have the ability to commit to going to a game at the same time every week (due to work), and the PFS sounded like a great way to do that. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it will work out well for me.

Im sorry if this comes off abrasively, as I dont intend it to. Im just confused.

So your current options for gaming are:
1. Not play at all, because of your work schedule.
2. Play PFS periodically, a campaign where the vast majority of things published by Paizo are legal and there are millions of potential character combinations.

And you choose the first? Im sorry, I just dont understand how someone who has been into this scene for 40ish years would rather not play at all instead of playing in a campaign where your options are nearly limitless.

Osirion ***** Venture-Captain, Illinois—Carbondale aka Disturbed1

I think this is a fantastic idea, but I would like to make one request.

If you are going to help with Stonelords since you have the PaizoCon/PaizConUK version now, and wont bother updating it with the Gencon version, dont bother doing it at all.

I say this as a GM who ended up using incorrect stats for monsters in last years special, because whoever made the document didnt update it. This surely sounds like Im complaining about the quality of free stuff, but when neveryone is supposed to be playing the same thing, YES, it does matter.

That said, despite that I am only running one scenario during the whole con, and it isnt one of those listed above, I appreciate all the help people give by doing this.

You might be best off deciding if the tourney is supposed to be a free for all or team matches or 1v1 or whatever first.

Also, you seem to have wandered into the Pathfinder Society Organized Play section of the boards. Youd likely get better answers by posting your question someplace else. :)

Good luck with the game!

Edit: Nevermind, youve got a star, you are probably aware of where you are posting. :P

Ive got a dozen or so characters, 4 more with numbers and GM credit that I havent built, and about 4 more ideas.

Meh, dont worry about it. :)

Osirion ***** Venture-Captain, Illinois—Carbondale aka Disturbed1

Your 6 options are correct, and just use your best judgement for counting encounters, keeping in mind, that roleplaying encounters are encounters, too.

When in doubt, ask somsone you trust. :)

One more thing to keep in mind is that a PC only gets the gold for the encounters they do as well, so if the run away from the final encounter, they get no gold for it.

Osirion ***** Venture-Captain, Illinois—Carbondale aka Disturbed1

I believe Mike has gone on record stating that a GM character doesnt have to be created til you are actually going to play it, and until then chronicles (including race and the one being mentioned here) can be applied or removed as necessary.

I dont have a link though, and I could be wrong. But Im pretty sure.

Since Babau's come up a lot thanks to Season 5, an amusing way to help keep them from killing you (as quickly) if you cant get rid of the Darkness is to put up an Obscuring Mist or similar spell.

It doesnt help you kill them any faster, but since you have 20% concealment when they are adjacent, they cant Sneak Attack you. :)

Unconscious people would immediately begin to drown. That aside, it is a good use for the spell that I had not considered before.

Unconscious characters must begin making Constitution checks immediately upon being submerged (or upon becoming unconscious if the character was conscious when submerged). Once she fails one of these checks, she immediately drops to –1 (or loses 1 additional hit point, if her total is below –1). On the following round, she drowns.

So you still have 3 rounds to get them out of the waterball, possibly more if they can make a check or two.

Hmmm, I seem to have misread that rule.

I most certainly did not say that.

I said it needs to already BE an aasimar or a tiefling, and that it needs to have agt least 1xp dated prior to August 14th. Aside from that, I dont care where the exp came from.

Now if Mike and John rule it has to be player credit, I'll abide by it until I can get them to change their mind.

It's ambiguous, because it doesn't mention level 1 rebuilds at all, which are a legal part of the campaign. Not does it mention GM credit or pregen credit characters that haven't been played as their own PC yet.

It doesnt need to mention any of those things. Not mentioning it means there is no special circumstance for it, so you apply the rules as normal. Credit can be used to make a character using any legal stuff you want, as long as you own the source material. Simple.

Fromper wrote:
If someone GMs on August 1, puts the credit on a new PC number, and writes up the character sheet as a tiefling on August 10, but doesn't actually play that character for the first time until August 20, is that a legal tiefling?

Perfectly legal, because the character was created before August 14th.

Fromper wrote:
If it is, then why wouldn't it be if the same exact thing if they first put the character stats (including race) down on paper on August 15? How would anyone know the difference? More important, why should anyone care?

Because as of August 14th, it is no longer legal. Unless that person tells anyone, no, noone is likely to know the difference and many wont care. If the person can live with themselves for not following the rules of the game, then so be it. Cheaters gonna cheat.

Fromper wrote:
Unless campaign staff clarifies otherwise, when I'm GMing, I'll just assume that any character with 1 xp before August 14 is legal to be an aasimar or tiefling. Needing to know or care when and how it became that race just seems like an unnecessary complication, which is why I'm hoping that's how Paizo will tell us to handle it.

And that's your perogative.

This is what aggravates me more then the perceived OPness of the 2 races. Paizo itself made the ruling on SLA's and put out the books they you to required to own to use the varients of those races, and then they get banned? This kinda seems off to me.

Mike and John did not make the SLA ruling, that was the rules team. The goal for PFS is to change as few things about RAW as possible. Since the rules team made the SLA ruling, PFS has abided by it.

And no official reason has been given (publicly) for why the Aasimar and Tiefling are getting banned, but they were a problem long before the SLA rule change.

Would you want to get blamed for something at work that someone in another department did? Cause thats what you are doing here.

The PRD only covers the hardcover books. If you want a really good site for searching for PFS-legal stuff, look at Achives of Nethys. The Open Road symbol next to something means its legal. And the person running it keeps it pretty up to date.

The wording of the original blog post could already be interpreted that way. It could also be interpreted as meaning that the PC has to already be one of those races before August 14, so disallowing rebuilding into it. That's why we need a ruling from Paizo.

To quote the Blog post itself, specifically, "The exception is any aasimar or tielfing character with at least 1 XP; these characters are grandfathered into the campaign."

The blog post says in very plain English that the character must be an aasimar or tiefling prior to the cut-off date.

Can you please explain how this is so confusing? Cause all it is sounding like to me is that you disagree with how its being worded, so you are declaring it 'too vague to tell' until we get an answer from Mike or John. That isnt likely to happen, IMO, and you may end up hurting yourself and others in the long run cause the first official answer you will likely get is Guide 6.0, which will probably come out only a week or so before Gencon.

Im not trying to keep anyone from playing those races. If youve got a level 1 now that you think you might at some point want to be an aasimar or tiefling, then 'start' the rebuild now. Like I said earlier, a character sheet that has the name, race, and PFS number on it is likely good enough for me, as long as you do that before the cut off date.

How will I know if you did? I wont. Thats the purpose of the honor system. Unless you try to rebuild it in front of me, or dont have a chronicle dated before August 14, I'll let you play it. :)
