If you are looking for free spells my Razmirian Priest Sorcerer character carries a number of scrolls which have expensive material components which allow him to provide effects at a huge discount.

1700gp on a scroll of restoration which is never used up on casting is probably the prime example although he has just hit 12th and I am looking at buying a Raise Dead scroll for Eyes of the Ten to provide free resurrections.

Not to mention the ability to ignore lesser material components based on the value of your holy symbol. Just get a Mithril Holy Symbol for 500gp and cast Stoneskin without paying anything further.

Is that in a book someplace? most expensive one Ive seen is Gold for 100.

Yes they do. I have seen on several occasions GMs try to stop people that allowed to share books, including married couples.

Those GMs are breaking the 'Dont be a Jerk' rule.

She can use them no problem. Similarly, if you have kids who want to play, they can also use the PDF. Possibly other people who live with you as well, though that tends to be a case by case basis kind of thing..

As far as sitting at other tables, as long as each person has access to the PDF (either in printed form or tablet, laptop, etc) for the stuff they need to have for their character, theyre fine.

One of the things to keep in mind is that, if we are going to help cut the time back to a manageable four hour slot, most of the "unique" systems we've put in (mass combat, dog sled race in #16, etc...) are likely going to be done away with. When a GM has to teach the players about the mechanics of a unique system for that scenario only, that leans towards adding an extra 15+ minutes to the slot.

Boo. :(

New goal: Become a published Paizo author by writing a module about adventurers in a 'Mission Impossible/ Whodunnit' style mystery that leads to Mass combat and giant monster fighting, finishing up with and an infiltration. All taking place on another planet or plane.

Other things to add that Id like to see:
~Moar dragons!
~Moar monsters we havent seen yet from the Bestiaries.

If you are looking for ways to decrease GM prep time:

~Use more in-print flip mats/ map packs.
~More easy to draw maps (fewer circles, less 10sq stuff, all NSEW axis based, etc).

~More 'Mission Impossible' style scenarios like The Disappeared and Library of the Lion.
~More 'Whodunnit' scenarios like Throaty Mermaid.
~More infiltration style scenarios like Severing Ties and Mask of the Living God (module).
~More mass combat type scenarios.
~More giant monster fighting type scenarios like Before the Dawn 2.
~More adventures to other planets/ planes.

This last one is probably something taboo at this point since there has been, to my knowledge, no official development of the areas, but Im asking anyway, as this is one of the things that Ive been wanting to see for a long time:

Can we explore someplace the rest of Golarion please? Arcadia? Casmaron? Sarusan? Azlant (on the bottom of the ocean)? Lots of ground that doesnt seem to have been touched with more than the broadest of brushstrokes. Lots and lots of open ground to cover. :)

I think you missed what I was talking about. Regardless of whether the person under scrutiny is a GM or a player, this community actually does a pretty consistent job (overall) of sussing out whether there might be a legitimate reason for the action in question. (Hooray! Everyone give yourselves a pat on the back!)

What I was talking about is how those discussions are executed. If the word "cheat" is never mentioned, both discussions pan out about the same. But if the word "cheat" is used and the subject is a GM, a whole chorus of people chime in with "Now there's no need to use such a strong word, it only fosters bad feelings and division within in the community and makes the person feel attacked and let's not demonize this person and..." Heck, even if the eventual conclusion of the discussion *IS* that the GM cheated (however rare that may be), folks will still get chastised if that's the word they use to say it. But drop the "c-word" when a player is being looked at, and nobody even blinks; the discussion just continues on as normal. Is the word somehow less likely to foster bad feelings or cause divisions in the community when directed at a player rather than a GM? Are players somehow less likely than GMs to feel attacked or demonized when their suspicious behavior is described (even tentatively) with the word "cheat"?

That is what I was talking about; not who cheats more or who gets accused more or anything like that, but rather who we're supposed to talk plainly about and who we're supposed to tiptoe for.

Gotcha.

Maybe its along the lines of not wanting to make the GM upset, since the percentage of the population that runs games rather than just playing is likely relatively small, so scaring off a GM, especially a quality one, is a bigger deal than scaring off a single player. *shrug*

Personally, I dont scare players off by accusing them of cheating. I scare them off by killing PCs.

:P

EDIT: It's also interesting to me that every time a thread comes up about a GM whom a player thinks might have gotten something wrong and the word "cheat" gets mentioned even once, throngs of people jump in with "Whoa whoa whoa, let's not throw around the 'c-word' so lightly!", but when the accused isn't the GM, "cheating" can be the entire focus of the conversation (and even be in the title) and no one bats an eye or cautions anyone against using such a strong word.

It looks like its a double standard, but I think those are entirely different situations.

If the player has foreknowledge of the scenario and abuses it, it's likely going to be at least somewhat obvious. And whatever they do during the game, their actions are all there, layed out on the table for all to see.

With a GM on the other hand, assuming none of the players have foreknowledge, the players have no way of knowing what is by the book and what the GM might have made up on the fly. So they may think something is fishy because of what happened, but cant ever get confirmation on it unless they either read the scenario themselves or ask other people questions about it.

I agree with Fromper. Unless its something that simply wouldnt work in the given situation, it shouldnt be disallowed.

For example, for Stealth, I use soft shoes or 'pants that dont swish when I walk'. Silly? yes. Any reason for you to keep me from using it? No.

On the other hand, if I said I had a 'Nature Handbook', which gives me +2 to Knowledge: Nature checks, and I want to use it on the Knowledge check at the beginning of a fight cause something jumped out, I would definitely understand if you wanted me to take an action to reference the book before getting the bonus.

+1 to Sean.

Also keep in mind that unless he has something that lets him do Grapple and Trip in the same turn (qhich is quite possible, but just in case), then this would be a two-turn thing for him to do. A trip can be made in place of a regular attack in your full attack progression. A Grapple is a Standard action, and therefore cannot be used in place of an attack.

If I was misreading it, then nevermind.

I think it was more that it's TV on whether the GM will allow someone who charged and was tripped before reaching the target to backtrack and say it was just a move to get up there and tripped. Charge would be a full round action once declared, and if you're tripped on the way to your target you don't have any standard or move actions left (at least that's how I read it).

Ah, gotcha. That makes more sense than what I said.

if you only have one attack, and the monster get's more than two...

Swing and walk out of melee. It get's one AOO, then one attack as it closes.

I've seen someone with a reach weapon fighting a monster with 2 claws and a bite...
move 10' away, suffering the AOO (so there is 2 squares between her and the monster) and ready an attack... so when the monster then closes, she gets her readied attack, then an AOO, then the monster gets one attack. And on her next turn (going before the monster again) she repeats this. She get's 2 attacks and the monster only gets two attacks...

One minor variation on this, which I prefer when it is available, is the attack, move, and ready, when it moves in,to trip it with the ready or AoO, so it then has to use another move action to stand up, and it can't 5' step, since it already moved to get into your ready range. And the standing back up provokes, too, if you have Combat Reflexes...

Variant on this, and something to bear in mind if the target character resembles your PC: Reach weapons or targets with reach, and the charging Barbarian (or similar): Using your AoO to trip the charger is not going to make him happy, even if he has moved for only a move action's distance, and the GM rules he can burn his standard to stand back up... And that interpretation is subject to ETV...

Seen that. Good tactic, but... Also seen the target then crawl forward 5 foot (suffering an AOO to do it) so that he is at 5' and can AOO (at -4) you when/if you move away again... If you do this to set up the trip AOO again, he stands and moves to attack a different PC.

Nice ideas kinevon, but nosig is correct, too. Their movement isnt done just cause they are now prone, but if they get inside your reach range, they can stand up without fear of being hit.

Also, and I could be reading this incorrectly, but it looks like kinevon is saying that it is a matter of table variation on if the GM will allow you to use your standard action to stand up. If I am reading that correctly, than that is incorrect, kinevon. It shouldnt be a TV issue, as you can always do another move action instead of a standard, so no GM should be disallowing that at all.

Rizzo Mouser, Ratfolk Magus, here.

I took the Unnatural trait (gives a bonus to AC vs animals, but their attitude starts one step lower for me), and it has come into play every time Ive played him so far, lol.

Kristen also made her Ratfolk character, a Rogue, and made special minis for us. Regular ones for when we are not swarming, and then a pair on a base together for when we are.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This. This. A thousand times this.

Anytime I have players ask how they can become better at the game, my response is:

If you want to become a better player, GM.
If you want to become a better GM, play.

Sitting on only one side of the screen means you miss half the experience!

Edit: And I forgot to say thank you for stepping up, and congrats!
