Are you talking about the Customized Summon List from Wrath of the Righteous Part 3? If so it is not authorized for Pathfinder Society. Nothing from the Wrath of the Righteous AP was added in Additional Resources.

I totally missed that Death's Heretic was out on Audible, it is the only book missing on their Pathfinder Tales page. At the time there was not a list for them, but there is now.

I am confused, I see a lot of games coming up in the US.

For my last 2 orders I have been getting the initial Order # email twice. Last time I got the authorization charge twice as well, this time since it was a pre-order and there is no authorization charge I did not see a charge twice.

I am still no sure getting the email twice was related to getting charged twice before, but getting the email twice is still an issue.

And the hotel lottery's over. If you aren't already booked for a hotel within walking distance, you aren't going to get one.

I thought there was supposed to be waiting lists or something, but I'm not seeing how to get on to them.

So it is still possible to get a hotel close by but it takes some work.

People always cancel and when they do cancel, those hotels go back on the list. I have done this every year to include last year. It takes some work because you have to continually keep an eye on what is available.

They got rid of waiting lists either last year or the year prior.

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.

Steven, at least based on Nefreet's experience, there are a number of people who believe Hero Lab is infallible and will argue that HL is correct even when shown the book.

That is a people problem not a program problem.

Edit: And what exactly are they arguing? Because you can't use HeroLabs as a source for an argument, which is once again not a problem with HeoLabs but the person not following the rule that they need the authorized rule source.

Liberty's Edge ***** Venture-Lieutenant, Alaska—Anchorage aka Dragnmoon

I am very perplexed how HeroLabs can cause arguments. It is just an interactive character sheet. In fact if you allow the print out of the character sheet from herolabs you have no reason to not allow the digital version since they are the exact same thing. What you see on the paper is what you see on the iPad just different format. Before the iPad version came out I used to add my most common buffs and print a bunch of versions of my character sheet out with those buffs included. Like I said, what you see on the iPad version is what you see on the character sheet.

I am not saying it does not have bugs, it does, none though that should be cause of an argument since they are minor bugs. I will go back to what I posted before on HeroLabs:

Most of the time it is reliable but on occasion there is a bug with it. If you know the software and the rules in question you can catch it and know how to work around it. In general you won't have problems but when yo do you need to know the rules don't let the program be your only knowledge source. Don't buy new software and expect to use it right away with out expecting issues (mostly user generated issues due to being unfamiliar with the program) and pissing people off. Learn the software first and use it in an environment that will allow you to. That way people/GMs who in general don't trust programs really have nothing to complain about.

Now If they are using HeroLabs as a source for the rules, that is a different story. You just tell them they can't and please pull out an approved rule source. I have done that in the past and will continue in the future. I know that HeroLabs biggest problem is not in it's ability to implement a bonus to it's character most of the time that is correct, and when it is wrong it is user error. It's biggest problem is not getting the actual text correct because they like short handing or re-wording the stuff they put in, that is the main reason you should never use it as a rules source, which you are not allowed to anyway.

Second, and more importantly, does Nefreet actually do what is stated at the table? Where are the players who have had the proverbial digital carpet pulled out from under them? Is his** post just trolling? Maybe just a rant? Hard to know at this point.

There was actually a poster here in the forums who said he would ban Gunslingers in his PFS games and/or do everything in his power to kill the PC. He started a huge argument similar to this one. In actuality he does none of those things, though he does really hate the Gunslinger.

Here is the a few things about electronic devices

Table Space - If all you have is a Huge Laptop I would recommend not going digital because table space can be a premium and you are taking way too much of it. This is especially true for conventions.

Power - Power outlets can be an issue, know where you are playing prior to bringing that laptop. If your play area has plenty of outlets that you can sit right next to this should not be a problem. If the outlet is all the way across the room and you have to run an extension cord, Don't Do IT!!!!. I can't emphasis this enough, you are causing a trip hazard and a danger to others. And the Organizer will most likely tell you to unplug. In this case leave the laptop home. I would recommend never to bring laptops to conventions because you can't control where you sit. This is less an issue with tablets since they in general have a longer battery life.

Unreliability of the software - Know the rules and know the Software. All software can and will have it's problems. HeroLabs as an example, most of the time it is reliable but on occasion there is a bug with it. If you know the software and the rules in question you can catch it and know how to work around it. In general you won't have problems but when yo do you need to know the rules don't let the program be your only knowledge source. Don't buy new software and expect to use it right away with out expecting issues and pissing people off. Learn the software first and use it in an environment that will allow you to. That way people/GMs who in general don't trust programs *Cough*Nefreet*Cough* really have nothing to complain about.

Always, Always, Always! have a paper backup of your PC just in case everything goes to s%!! with your electronic device. Not only that, Thems be the rulez.

Are you even allowed to do that?

I don't play in PFS so I am not affected. I am just asking because I keep seeing varying statements in when a GM is allowed to turn someone away. It is almost like each area has its own house rules for that.

Sure he can if is Organizer allows him to do it. But the GM/Organizer would not get happy feelies out of it.

But if he did it say at GenCon/PaizoCon and the player complained, he might have problems depending on who the player complained to.

Liberty's Edge ***** Venture-Lieutenant, Alaska—Anchorage aka Dragnmoon

You would hate me then Nefreet, Because I live by HeroLabs on my iPad, though I bring physical sheets, because I have to, I play with my iPad.

Hmm... here, in FtF games with the local group, people fill out their entire Chronicle before it gets signed, because that's the rule. People can't "purchase items between games", because they have to do so with a GM present, because those are the rules. In practice, they make the notes on their ITS with the next Chronicle# filled in, and it gets done at the beginning of their next session.

Ain't Nobody Got Time for That!, especially at conventions. But you have every right to enforce it, though it would be near impossible to do so at large conventions.

That is because it is a Module not an Adventure Path. They have different rules then APs campaign mode.

Liberty's Edge ***** Venture-Lieutenant, Alaska—Anchorage aka Dragnmoon

Brian you have every right to enforce that they purchase everything prior to signing it, since it is in the guide.

That said "Taking off my VL hat" It is generally not done and there will be no "PFS" police that will take away your GM card if you don't.

I wish they would take it out of the guide, it has got to be the most not followed rule in the guide.

A better practice is to look at the prior chronicle sheet/ITS to verify that they added the latest items they bought between scenarios.

Will there be more info in the book on Paladins and Hellknights?
Like, what did you have in mind?

I would love more information on how a paladin is able to join a group knowing it supports an evil government and how a paladin is able to get around the paladin code. To me Hellknights and Paladins just don't mix and how there are Paladins in the Hellknights has just not been explained to my satisfaction.

As an example your opening line for the blurp of this book

"Merciless, black armored enforcers, Hellknights care nothing for good or evil, only the order’s absolute, unflinching vision of law."

does not fit what a paladin is. A paladin is more then just law they care about good and evil.

My Expectations for reporting are based on how long it takes me to report. I can only base it on experience.

1 Day for game days
2 days for conventions with less then 50 tables.

I have no experience with more then 50 tables so I don't have expectations to base on, but I have been surprised when conventions of 50-100 tables take weeks to months to report.
