Some Random Dragnmoon Thoughts on running Scenarios Cold - These may or may not have anything to do with the OPs subject ;).

- Random Thought 1: I will never GM/Play or even Visit St Louis!
- Random Thought 2: Running cold here in San Antonio is rare, it rarely gets below freezing here.
- Random Thought 3: I prefer my scenarios preheated at 400°
- Random Thought 4: One of my favorite scenarios takes place in Irrisen, it gets cold there.

Non-Random Thought:

I don't run scenarios cold, the same as Chris I would rather a game did not happen so it could happen another day with a better experience.

Thanks for the quote wraithstike.

Nope the item was read during the game, a quick ruling was made by the GM and should have gone from there. GMs make mistakes, it happens you move on and bring it up again after the game as the OP was advised and assumed happened.

No ongoing problem first time ever brought up.

the rule in the UE says...

"...Monks are proficient with brass knuckles. Brass knuckles can't be disarmed."

This does not reverse the rule in the APG which says...

"Monks are proficient with brass knuckles and can use their monk unarmed damage when fighting with them."

the rule reversal is only in the post from May 24, 2010...

Ummm, what?... That is exactly what It does since it takes out that Line, without that line it does not work with monk unarmed damage. A removal of the line is the change of the rule.

The Post was dealing with acutally another printning of the Brass Knuckles in the Adventurer's Armory which first change it.

Here is the Order.

APG Brass Knuckles
Changed in Printing of Adventurer's Armory pissed a ton of people off which got SKR talking about it.
UE added Brass knuckles with offical verion for PFRPG which removes the line that says it works with Monks unarmed attacks, without that line it does not work with thier attacks which was already changed in Adventurer's Armory.

APG still has not got a reprint with the new rule so Brass Knuckles has not been updated.

The post was just a clarification of something that was already printed, or soon the be printed I forget the exact order.

I anticipate handling this in a manner similar to Thornkeep, in which "campaign mode" was not an option. I'm willing to hear out reasons for why Emerald Spire should be playable in "campaign mode."

I also don't see why it's needed. Every level was designed (to my knowledge) to be like a Thornkeep level, and Thornkeep worked great as a module-only playstyle.

My biggest reason for not allowing campaign mode is that honestly, it has been VERY hard to sell any of the multi-part modules and APs here for playing at a game day. For all the modules and APs that have sanctioned content, nobody wants to do it. Everyone would just rather do it in campaign mode (for both the freedom and the extra rewards...) so getting things like Dragon's Demand or AP books in the PFS schedule has been nigh impossible.

Conversely, Thornkeep modules have been immensely popular. We run them at game days, and we run them at conventions. It would be great to have a direct replacement for these, as TK is getting quite stale and less and less people can play in them anymore.

I am confused here... You don't want campaign mode because your players like the campaign mode?

So as the resident self proclaimed expert of what is and has been legal for Gods I can tell you The Great Old ones have never been legal, and I am sorry all your GM and you missed that.

A quick look at the gods I don't see any that give dark tapestry other then the The Great Old ones.

That said there is a way to get it but you would have to retrain your archetype to Separatist which allows to you pick one domain that can be any you want as long as it is not a alignment domain opposite your god.

Yup, It has to follow all PFS rules for the characters. If the Module does not cater to Level 1 characters then they need to play a Pregen assuming the Module is not higher then Level 8. If it is Higher then Level 8 then there is no option for a Non PFS character/player to play.

Question wrote:
But what do we do if we do that and its still not addressed years later, as in the case of ice tomb having no range or duration? People were asking about this in 2011 and the UM errata thread.

This I can answer.

You make your own ruling or let your GM make a ruling and wait until Paizo eventually gets to it in their own time, and their priority of what needs to be answered even if it is months are years later.

It will eventually be addressed.

What you don't want to do is get upset about it in the forums because that would most likely just cause them to not read your posts in the future, or the least not address you but wait until it is brought up by another.

All you need to do is bring it to their attention. They will see it and add it to their list of things to address at sometime in the future. Just because it is not being addressed directly in the forums, does not mean it is not on their radar.

Edit: not being on the forums that long you might not know this, or if you have you may not have realized this, Paizo in general does not make rule changes or erratas until a new printing of the book, unless it is a rule that effects many players. And this particular issue is not one of those cases. You most likely will not hear a ruling until they are close to a new release of UM and the correction has made it to the next printing. A good example of that is the range of double barreled musket which was 10' when it should have been 40' not only in one book but 2. They did not change that until they finally got close to a release of the latest printing of UC.

Some scenarios or special events offer more than two subtiers. In these cases, no PC can play at a subtier more than 1 step away from her character level.

It's under the Attack Action in the Combat chapter.

Shooting or Throwing into a Melee: If you shoot or throw a ranged weapon at a target engaged in melee with a friendly character, you take a –4 penalty on your attack roll. Two characters are engaged in melee if they are enemies of each other and either threatens the other. (An unconscious or otherwise immobilized character is not considered engaged unless he is actually being attacked.)

If your target (or the part of your target you're aiming at, if it's a big target) is at least 10 feet away from the nearest friendly character, you can avoid the –4 penalty, even if the creature you're aiming at is engaged in melee with a friendly character.

If your target is two size categories larger than the friendly characters it is engaged with, this penalty is reduced to –2. There is no penalty for firing at a creature that is three size categories larger than the friendly characters it is engaged with.

Just be careful and keep a eye out for a future printing of the CRB, because that rule may be taken out..

Sure!

1) Ignore the "or if part of the creature is at least 10 feet away" rule, because it's going away.
2) If the target is two or more sizes larger than your ally, the "firing into melee" penalty is –2 instead of –4.
3) Done!

Looking for a silver lining...

Does this mean for Season 6 instead of a recycled 4 Star scenario released to the public we will have a brand new one?

Just another Note, would have been better to release Part I and II for 4 Star+ instead. Would have been slightly less disappointing.

How Many times does the Guide Call those who run the game Judges? 0
How Many times does the Guide Call those who run the game GM or Game Master? 167

On the Chronicle Sheet is it GM Initials or Judge Initials?

It may be irrational, but every time I hear the term Judge I feel it is demeaning to what an actual Game Master does.

This is actually a hard one, because the requirement for the prestige class did not actually change, it was always required that you had to cast the spell from your own spell slots, it was just poorly worded before, and before that it was only clarified on the boards.

That said, that is not your fault so we are only left with what the guide says about rebuilds that most closely fits your situation.

As written, no, alchemists are not spellcasters, and therefore can't select feats such as Craft Wondrous Item.

The design team is aware that this creates some thematic problems with the idea of an alchemist creating golems and so on, and plan to examine this in the future.

Instead of regional Scenarios, here is a different Idea that can encourage Traveling to different Conventions and has less development of a full scenario.

Regional Boons.

Create Boons for Separate areas/regions that interact differently with each other as you gather different boons from conventions from different areas around the world.

Getting one boon from a local convention say here in Texas has minor boon, while if I get another boon from say Colorado or Seattle the 2 interact with each other for a better affect.

Say of I go all the way to Australia for a convention, all the boons I already have and due to the distance traveled come together for an even greater affect.

This is just a basic framework of an idea, a lot would have to be put into how they would actual work with each other and how to determine greater rewards based on the traveling.

This is what I would suggest, already knowing about your hatred of Gunslingers.

Just GM Home PFS games, that way you can restrict the class.

Actions like this in an open event or convention, especially if it is not a local event will get you uninvited from said event.

How have you so far gotten away from not getting complaints sent to your VL or VC? Keep doing that.

Also don't GM here in San Antonio because I promise you that you will get a table with all Gunslingers... ;)

Thanks John for your post, I would like to address some of the questions you brought up. Though I will address them out of Order.

John Compton wrote:
Do more Tier 1–5 scenarios! I say this not to play down the conversation that has happened here so far over the past day or so, but we actually heard you, listened, and began working toward such a long-term goal several months ago.

So the reason I want to address this first is because for myself my greatest concern was not doing more Tier 1–5 scenarios but getting you all not to do less.

Season 0-3 all had 11+ Low Tier Scenarios while Season 4 only had 6. Only having 6 is still hurting my scheduling to this day. I do not want to see that repeated again and would like to see the number get back to at least prior seasons. Yes I am aware that Season 0-2 had a Low tier that no longer exist (Tier 1-7) but Paizo was still able to kick out 11 tier 1-5 in season 3 despite the lost of Tier 1-7.

John Compton wrote:
Would it be acceptable to have two 1–5 scenarios in one month and none in the month that follows? I ask this in all seriousness, as this shows up in at least one of the season-long models that I’ve drawn up.

I have no problem with this as long as we get back to at least prior to season 4 number of Low Tier scenarios released.

John Compton wrote:
Are evergreen Tier 1 scenarios useful? Are they only appreciated when they are published as bonus scenarios? Taking into account their replayability, are they generally more or less useful than a Tier 1–5 scenario?Again, I ask this is all seriousness (despite my hint of snark), as my models aim to include a new evergreen Tier 1 scenario with some regularity.

Well that is actually 3 Questions..

Are evergreen Tier 1 scenarios useful?

Yes they are useful but they are less useful for normal Game days due to the fact it forces everyone to have a level 1 PC. They are way to level restricted to comfortably fit game day.

Where Tier 1 Scenarios strengths lay are at events that will attract a lot of new players and as a Side Scenario to always have prepped just in case you need to quickly fill another table. In other words an emergency Scenario.

Are they only appreciated when they are published as bonus scenarios?

Since you brought this up I am assuming you saw my post here. I was very dispointed to see a Tier 1 Scenario take up a normal Scenario slot in your production schedule, due to the reason I state above about them being difficult to schedule because of the limited level range. I would much prefer see them as Bonus Scenarios not in the normal production schedule like First Steps.

Taking into account their replayability, are they generally more or less useful than a Tier 1–5 scenario?

Oddly enough replayability for local experience actually is not helpful at all. Locally at least replaying a scenario is not enjoyable due to the fact of you already know the story. Though I am intrigued about the statement that it can play different on replay so I will hold my opinion on that until I read the scenario.

That said Due to the level limitation of Tier 1 they are significantly less useful then Tier 1-5. I would be extremely disappointed if Tier 1 Became a stable inclusion into the normal 26 scenarios released a year. They need to be released as Bonus scenarios only, outside the normal production schedule of the 26. Otherwise they will be more of a hindrance then a boon.

If Paizo for Season 5 continues what they did in Season 4 I am worried that I will start losing players due to the fact of not able to sit enough players and the low tier scenarios. If I can't sit veteran players at the low tier tables the games will not happen and I will not be able to grow.

Can we be giving any insight on what the plans for the number of Tier 1-5 scenarios are planned for this season?
