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.

Level 5 can't play in subtier 1-2 of a 1-7? I've heard of 6-7 not being able to, but not 5. I would've thought that's akin to a 1-5.

Is there a source that says that anywhere?

The PFS guide

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.

1 step away from level 5 in a 1-7 is 3-4 and 6-7.

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.

Further on the off topic trend.

Not at my Table if I am GMing...

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.

The way you use it makes it even worse to me, makes me feel less then Mike as a Game Master.

It may be irrational but that is how I feel.

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.

FAQ already answers this

Alchemist: Is an alchemist a spellcaster for the purpose of crafting magic items other than potions?

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?

Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Mike (and John) I know I talked to you about this in person at Owlcon last year but now that it looks like the solution you gave me is not going to happen I am going to ask again.

Are we going to see more Tier 1-5 Scenarios?

In all my experience the low tier scenarios are the most popular and easiest to schedule on game days and Season 4 had way too little.

In the past we were promised one per month which did not last long most likely I suspect due to removing 1-7 tier scenarios.

This is what we had for Low tier every season

Season 0 - 13
Season 1 - 15
Season 2 - 11
Season 3 (Lost of Tier 1-7)- 11
Season 4 - Only 6!
Season 5 (So far) - 2 (With only 9 scenarios announced so far)

Mike I really don't want to see a shortage on Low Tier (Tier 3-7 does not count) scenarios like we saw last season.

are we going to see and increase this season?

I am going to admit straight out I am not a fan of the Weapon Cord or any cheap items that screw around with action economy.

That said I am against banning them only for one reason.

Most of the hype and anger on this particularly with Gunslingers is most likely from theory crafting and not due to a huge influx of dual barrel pistol wielders with weapon cords. Yes it can be abused, but no it is most likely not being abused to a height that it is causing a problem with PFS. If you are seeing it in your local area it is best to bring the issue with the person causing it.

There is no reason to Ban an item that is not abused by most likely the majority who use the item for the few who are abusing it. Especially because I don't see this becoming a larger issue at this time. If it was to become a larger issue in the future due to something else being added to the game that made this item a must have then I would be willing to rethink this. But currently it is not.

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

Instead of choosing a Deity those that own Pathfinder Player Companion - Faiths & Philosophies now have the option of choosing a Pantheon of Deities. Please note that Clerics, inquisitors, paladins, cavaliers of the order of the star, samurai of the order of the star are still restricted to choosing one Deity that is allowed according to the PFS guide and additional resources and cannot choose a Pantheon. I have added a separate list of Pantheons allowed according to additional resources below the list of gods.

When you come up with stuff like this you need to base it on why the rule is there in the first place and any ideas that come up need to be based on why that rule is there.

So for this particular thread it is finding and alternative to carrying books or PDFs. So why is that rule there?

I see two reasons for it, for Paizo it is there to accurately show proof of ownership and for GMs it is so the players have a trusted source on hand that accurately reproduces the rules in question.

Any idea that comes from this thread needs to be able to do both of those or it is a dead idea before it even started.

So for example Allowing PRD use for players does not shows Pazio's proof of ownership they are looking for so that idea is a no go.

Allowing HeroLabs as a source does neither show proof of ownership or accurately reproduce the rules. HeroLabs does an excellent job of implementing the rules but not at reproducing them accurately (typos, not having full text)

I think the best idea I have seen is to allow photocopies of owned books with a signed chronicle verifying proof of ownership. That said this chronicle needs to be trusted and accurate and I agree with Andrew it should be limited in who can sign it to VOs who by their very job are required to be trusted.

This may be an inconvenience for some but it opens an option they did not have before for for a rule that when not followed could be an inconvenience to an entire table of players and GM.

On the shirts and not being able to distinguish musters from everyone else. One thing that might have helped was to have all those musteres who had their own volunteer shirts from another con actually wear the purple one like they were supposed too.

Another thing I would love to see is to keep the purple shirts for the HQ/musters only and get a different shirt with a different color for the GMs that says they are PFS GMs on the back. Those purple shirts are horrendous ;).

Number of time Game Master/GM is used as a title in the Core Book = 126

In Fact Judge is mentioned under Game Master in the Core book, but as one of the many roles a GM fulfills to include Storyteller, Entertainer, Inventor and Player.

By calling us Judges IMO (notice the opinion part please, it is neither a statement of fact or a statement saying those that do not agree with me are wrong) you actually reduce the roll we play in running game in PFS.

I know your reason for using the term, but I still don't think it fits. I think the current terms that are actually used, GMs for everyone who runs the game and Pathfinder Society Campaign Manager For Mike much more accurately describes our roles. I hope one day I will see the end of the use of the Term Judge for PFS GMs.

That said please continue with the thread... ;)

Edit: Also under my Profile it says this... Pathfinder Society GM, not Pathfinder Society Judge... ;)

What's the Antepenultimate trait in your area? ;)

I am under the opinion, instead of the severe restrictions this feat has, it would be so much easier just to Ban it.
