We need a better definition of "Venerate" for PFS.

Some people are equating it to full on worship, just without mechanical benefits.

But that's not what veneration is.

Veneration is when you're about to get on a ship, and you utter a quick prayer to Gozreh that they don't blow you off course.

Veneration is crossing a narrow precipice over a volcano, and praying to Yamatsumi that he doesn't blow you to smithereens.

Veneration is storytelling about the entire Vudran Pantheon, and explaining why each and every god is crucial to the whole, while still maintaining that Irori is best.

Veneration is not performing daily rituals, regular prayers, weekly sacrifices, self adornment, personal trials, quiet whispers, scarification, or any other indication that you regularly follow a deity.

Veneration is quick and fleeting, without any long term focus.

Worship is a lifestyle.

I actually agree with Nefreet here, this is how I see it as well.

What I don't see is "Venerate" as a means to get around the legal Deity list. There is a reason that there is a list of deities that are not legal, they don't fit the campaign and/or can be disruptive. IMO I don't want to see the idea of veneration as a means to get around that.

So did I miss it before or was this the first time they mentioned it? I know that they are planning a Lost Lands Campaign book but this last update was the first time I noticed it was going to be a Boxed Set!

For non organised games (Home games) i would never game at a store, that is what my Game room in my house is for. But for public Organized play the Game Store is a very important part of my growth.

First off I am going to start of admitting that my request for allowing the Story Summoner Archetype (The Harrow Handbook pg 25) for Unchained Summoner is based on selfish reasons. It is an Archetype I have always been interested in and once the Harrow Deck was allowed it was the only Archetype that actually made the Summoner interesting to me. In my opinion it is one of the more story rich archetypes around the harrow deck and has links to my favorite module The Harrowing. Just as I was about to start playing the PC I made (Started off with GM credit) PFS changed to Unchained Summoner.

That said here is why it is not legal for Unchained Summoner. According to the Blog "Society Unchained" the unchained summoner qualifies for all existing summoner archetypes, save those that modify the eidolon's type or base form. Which the Story Summoner does with the following:

Evolve Base Form (Su): Starting at 8th level, whenever he gains a level, the story summoner can change his eidolon’s base form to a new base form. Once chosen, this base form is set until the story summoner gains another summoner level. This ability replaces transposition.

Now this particular class ability still works with unchained summoner but you would be limited to what base form you can change to by your subtypes available forms which for some would mean you can't change at all. So in itself it works fine with unchained summoner and does not break the unchained summoner class.

So in itself it is not an archetype that does not work with Unchained Summoner. But there is another reason why I am making this request. There is another Archetype that is legal for unchained summoner that does the same thing but allowed you to do so more often and starting at level 1, the Morphic Savant from Monster Summoner's Handbook pg 16. Here is the ability in question:

Eidolon of Chaos: A morphic savant’s eidolon must be of a chaotic alignment (if using the summoner from Pathfinder Unchained, the eidolon must have the azata, demon, or protean subtype). The morphic savant’s eidolon has three base forms: biped, quadruped, and serpentine. Each form has the same feats and skills, but has its own set of evolutions. When the summoner meditates and regains his spell slots for the day, he can select any of the three base forms of his eidolon. The eidolon has 1 fewer evolution point than normal for an eidolon of the morphic savant’s summoner level, and has 1 fewer skill point per Hit Die. This ability alters eidolon.

Yes it is a different ability but it also allows you to change your base form of any of 3 forms at the beginning of the day starting at first level. It is also not limited to the Subtypes base forms as the archetype gives you the base forms not the subtype, so in the case of the Azata and Protean you actually get more base forms.

I would love it if you would reconsider allowing story summoners for unchained summoner based on above and would love to hear input from others against or for.

In my experience the majority of pregen deaths I have seen are when the GM is playing the pregen in a 3 player table. We had an ongoing joke at my last location about Kyra Clone #x every time we had to use her.

I have never seen anyone "Abuse" the system by playing a pregen.

This has not been confirmed yet since this was a FAQ not something in the Guide and the FAQ still states you can.

The question has come up at Gen con and the answer from Tonya was that the change is intentional,

I'm sure after Gen Con the conflicting FAQ will be removed.

If this is the case I am not a fan of this change. My personal experience with who actually uses PreGens most of the time, this only hurts new players and keeping them.

I updated the Document with the list deities that are PFS legal choices for PCs.

The new Source Added with the Additional Resources update on 10 June 2016 is:

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Heaven Unleashed: Deity: The empyreal lord Andoletta is a legal divine patron.

I am still hoping to get an answer on this, I know we have plenty of ideas on how or if this can be done, but I think we will need an answer on this. Been holding off on building a Vigilante until I have a better understanding on how this works in PFS.

How are we to handle changing the area of Renown for the Vigilante class?

It normally takes up to a week to begin with to build up renown in a new small community, there are no mechanics for it.

Can Vigilantes gain renown in a new area outside the scenario during downtime or between scenarios?

Do they pick a location when first built and keep that from scenario to scenario and can never change it?

Other?

What UndeadMitch said.

Not all Modules can be done in Campaign Mode (with a non-PFS character). This Mode was only created when the Modules started getting longer with The Dragons Demand. So sadly you can't apply PFS credit to a PFS character.

Below are the Modules that allow that method of play:

The Dragon's Demand
Wardens of the Reborn Forge
Tears at Bitter Manor
Plunder & Peril
Daughters of Fury

All Adventure Paths that have chronicle sheets can also be played the same way.

All other Modules to get PFS credit need to played with a PFS character using the same the normal rules for PFS.

But that is what my comment was directed at.

You were not clear on that, you just said items, so I was just clearing that up so someone would not think you could not buy items from chronicle sheets that are non-core,

You can't even get/use some chronicle sheet items because they aren't core.

This is wrong. The Chronicle sheet you get from completing a scenario is one of the few ways you can get access to stuff outside of core.

There are a few other Archetypes that fit this as well that are currently not allowed with Unchained, to include Story summoner.

In PFS play, which slots can an Animal Companion wear magic items? For the purpose of this discussion let us assume a Wolf companion.

Also, what about armor for the Wolf? Can they wear Light armor without having the Proficiency at no penalty? Lets say standard Leather Armor.

And if you want the Wolf to wear heavier armor, can you simply take Heavy Armor Proficiency or must you take them in order. Light, Medium, then Heavy?

Trying to create a Mad Dog Barbarian and Wolf Companion that are both armored and magical. Gold will be tight, but if I streamline it I think it will be possible to armor and equip my Wolf with a couple magic items to increase stats a bit, while still able to equip myself.

First Questions is answered in this this FAQ:

Can my animal companion or familiar wear or use magic items?

Second Question, you can wear Barding without the armor proficiency but you get the penalties for not having that proficiency.

And last questions, Armor Proficiency, Heavy had]s the prerequisite of Armor Proficiency, Medium which has a prerequisite of Armor Proficiency, Light so you can't take heavy until you have medium and you can't take medium until you have light.

but do you TRUST them?

Do you check to "keep people honest" or "to catch mistakes"?

I go in assuming they made mistakes, I have only ever seen one purposely "Cheating".

Actually most mistakes I find if fixed would be to the player's benefit .

I know this is a free product an most likely at the bottom of your list but what are the chances of us seeing this update soon? I would love to update my Advertising flyers for PFS and my PFS web pages with the current seasons logos.

Hmmm, My File for the most recent guide I name Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play 7-0 not Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide 7-0. That would cause all type of alphabetical order problems!

Since we're now griping about tablets in general - the one thing that I quite nearly can't stand is when a player decides to start playing 'theme music' from their tablet that (to them) matches what is going on in the game.

Wow do I hate that.

I do that on occasion, well not theme music, but sound effect from Syrinscape. I love using the wilhelm scream.

Edit: I would like to add that I don't do this in open rooms, and mostly as a GM.
