I am working on my schedule now for PaizoCOn and I am wondering what time Saturday will the Banquet begin and end?

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

3 people marked this as FAQ candidate.

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?

Yup, it seems to be busted again.

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

Additional resources opens them up as always available to classes that can buy them.

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

That is just from the Core book, all others are added onto that list from additional resources (As long as you have a class that can buy them).

Any Non-magical item added in additional resources is considered Always Available, with the extra restriction on poisons limited to certain class ability.

Edit: There are few other exceptions, but they are called out as specifically needing fame.

Edit: Like I said above with the extra restrictions on Poison and the few exceptions called out, here is what the guide states.

All mundane (completely nonmagical) weapons, armor, equipment, and alchemical gear found in any other source that is legal for play are considered always available.

I believe they should be able to buy myself, im ok if they risk contact on adding like a non specialized class but i think they would know where to buy poisons

Fame does matter. Even if you have the poison use class feature, unless the poison appears on the always available list (which is limited to certain classes currently) or you have it on a chronicle, you need sufficient fame to purchase it.

So an 2nd level alchemist can buy Red Tears as long as they have at least 5 fame, even if they never found red tears on a chronicle.

I would read the FAQ as stating for those that can buy poisons that they are always available and Fame does not matter.

PFS FAQ wrote:
Any character with the Poison Use class ability can purchase and use poisons. For now, they are the only classes that have a list of “always available poisons” (those noted below)—no other class may purchase poisons unless they appear on a chronicle sheet.

It does say that in the beginning of the FAQ, but they can activate Ioun Stones as pointed out in the FAQ above. The Ioun Stone once activated becomes permanent until removed.

At which point you would be using a spell like ability, not activating the rock? Ok, that seems legit.

Hey I did not say it was not weird, just saying it fits within all the rules. Also how many familiars have a Chr of 11? That said I was wrong about HD I think..

Hit Dice: For the purpose of effects related to number of Hit Dice, use the master’s character level or the familiar’s normal HD total, whichever is higher.

Cool then your familiars HD which does not go up with your level would be it's caster level. Assuming it has a Chr of 11 it should be good. What is the Familiar?

I was kind of just assuming that it is the same as the number of hit dice (which should be equal to the master's level) but if not then it couldnt be less than one, right?

familiars HPs, go up with your level not their Hit die. Since Familiars don't have character levels that might mean they can not use this ioun stone. But that is something better asked for in the rules forum.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Card Game, Cards, Class Deck, Companion, Maps, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

yeah, I don't have the resources on hand to answer the rules questions.

What would be the familiars Character Level since that is required to figure out caster level?

What does a Silver Spindle do?

That said in General this is the rule for Animal Companions and Familiars with Ioun Stones.

An animal or familiar has to have an intelligence of 3+ to activate an ioun stone. If the animal or familiar has less than a 3 intelligence, they may not activate an ioun stone.

Now on if the power of the ioun stone works on the familiar depends on what it does. What does it do?

The pretty clear intent is that this was intended as a way to allow not-quite-cons to get GM boons, not to allow every weekly game to get them. I'm also pretty sure no one was meant to be disenfranchised over this. Paizo needs to call these different events something, so when someone asks for "convention support" they get Package A, which doesn't offend a store owner who loses out on sales because they get a box of free CRBs as well as boons.

I'm sure Tonya and the crew will sort it out, provide clarity, and make it work.

Is this is where my confusion comes in. Just based on her public comments, the intent of this is to get Boons to those who can't get to Conventions. That is all. I don't see anything that says it was just for Not quite conventions. There are areas that can't even do that.

There seems to be no size requirement, I see nothing that says I could not request boons for one of my normal schedule gaming days per quarter.

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

Mark and Andrew, there is nothing to indicate in anything she has said since coming up with the "New" rules for Game Day boon, that your regular gaming day event would not qualify.

I can't go into more details here.

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

Mark Stratton wrote:
For me, that's somewhere between "regular gaming events" and "Convention." To me, the new "Game Day" fits that bill quite nicely.

Mark, A "Game Day" is any public PFS gaming event. It is not a special category that is slightly less then a convention. So a Game Day is your regular events as long as it is public.

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

It is ok Quentin, it is a bit confusing. This might be something they might look at clearing up in the guide. The guide does not even talk about the "Campaign Mode" option for some Modules, only that it is allowed for Adventure Paths. Those rules are actually found with the chronicle sheets you download with the modules that allow it (The ones I listed above).

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.

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,

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.

Not it's not. I've had this discussion already. Some things work, others don't.

Example: Confirmation gives you the wayfinder that costs 1 PP and grants a discount on further wayfinder upgrades, despite their being no legal wayfinder upgrades. So you can only use half of what is printed on the chronicle sheet.

That is different you're talking about a boon that makes it cheaper to buy something that is not legal in core but does not actually give you access to it, I am talking about that the Items on the chronicle sheet are legal to buy even if they are not in the Core books. You still will need to own the source though.

Now to address your comment if you would later get a boon that gives you access to a wayfinder that costs pp, you can use the confirmation boon to make it cheaper.

There are a lot Wizards of the Coast products in their store. They don't just sell their brand.

Ok, now that UI is in Additional Resources I noticed a few things.

How does Renown work in PFS? Can I say I spent the prior week building it up prior to the scenario?

I noticed all the Alternate rules were left out (Ch 3 & 4). Some of it would be useful especially on spells and skills.

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

Also for Inner Sea Faiths the books needs this line added:

Gods: All gods are legal for play.

Or something similar. This will allow players to use the book as a source for their god choice.

Edit: Also the addition of Daughters of Fury legal magical items was not highlighted in red.

I just got a notification of a processed UPS Ground delivery from Paizo today for delivery to me.

I have no clue what it is since I have not ordered anything and I have not received a shipment notification from Paizo. The weight is 7.8 pounds and it was processed today. If you are interested in the tracking number please email me.

Hopefully it was not something shipped to me by mistake.

Just to clarify, It is not my March subscription shipment. That was sent out a week ago and I am already tracking that.

To expand the question, what if the wife was playing at a different table?

As the FAQ states Sharing requires playing at the same table. Sticking to the FAQ means she would need her own source.

For small conventions it is not a big deal husband and wife would be close by so they can swap when needed, for larger conventions like GenCon that would be near impossible so expect each to need their own source book.

If you are very concerned about it you can go with PDFs and separate devices each for looking at PDFs.

So this is weird...

I got my initial Authorization email and Authorization charge to my account on Mar 10 which subsequently was removed as normal after a few days. I got another charge yesterday (March 18) which usually (Always) means I get a shipping email and my PDFs, which did not happen.

Is Paizo now sending out Authorization requests again after a certain time period?
