I am guessing this sale does not stack with subscription discounts?

I would like to request a thread I opened title to be changed.

I made a poor choice in title choice and it is attracting posts that are off Subject.

Here is the thread in question:

Pathfinder Society and D&D Adventurers League

Can the title be changed to something more on subject, something like "The Future of Quests in PFS"?

So I have been now organizing PFS in San Antonio for a little over 4 years, in attendance comparison D&D 4th edition Org Play vs PFS Org play I have always had a larger attendance. That just changed.

Before we start out I would like to point out this forewarning post by Drogon in May 2013.

Ever since I started organizing here D&D has been dying, 4th edition never drew that many players and near the end it was barely running at all. While PFS had some up and downs we have been consistently running since I started organizing. I think the most players other then Conventions but for regular game days I had was a little over 20 people, while D&D could barely get 1 table going if that.

That all changed this week. For the first Encounters 5th edition event they drew in 54 players! I have never been near that for a regular game day (I have been at conventions), I literately can't compete with that because PFS does not have enough products out there that compares to encounters.

Encounters are similar to Quests. As they say on their page, Encounters are short weekly play program, geared for a casual play audience with short sessions each week. New Encounter comes out every week easy to fit in after school or work during the weekday.

I would love to see something similar to this come out from Paizo. They can build upon the Quests idea with different tiers and releasing one new full quest (5-6 short adventures) each month just like The Silverhex Chronicles.

I will also like to add that the Strong Org play put out there by WotC has also helped me, I had a few new players this weekend who joined me who started with D&D Encounters and wanted to play PFS as well so I am glad WotC is supporting their org play so strongly.

I am curious if other Organizers out there are seeing something similar out there as well or not seeing it at all? Also other ideas out there from you all on how Paizo can put more support into PFS.

I am assuming if we get access to Cybertech through a Chronicle sheet that we have to follow all the rules with the installation of the Cybertech, to include the fee to install it?

An example would be something that costs 4000 gp to buy would also cost 400 gp to install.

Has PFS thought about giving free Scenarios to stores that sign up for PFS like they do in Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild?

Though what I don't want to see PFS do is the month delay on scenarios like Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild does.

Both On the Horizon and Skull & Shackles Demo Script say that a player can only get one mini chronicle a season.

I ran Skull & Shackles Demo Script a few weeks back, does that mean those players can't play On the Horizon even if they use a different character?

Thanks John for getting these out!

I have a few questions if you have a moment.

Are you still planning on going back to the old ones to edit them to the new format?

What should be our expectations on when future release of these will be? I think a few of us expected them to come out when the first book came out of the 4 books so were a little disappointed that they took longer than expected. Should we change those expectations? Is it reasonable to assume for the future they will come out after the last of book is released or do you have something else in mind for when they will be released?

On to the Pregens, it was mentioned that the original ones were being worked on and new ones were going to be added for the classes that currently don't have a pregen, will those be coming out in the next few weeks or will it be a few months down the road?

Once again thanks for getting these out I look forward to adding them to a PC.

So I have one big limitation on growing our local Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild to a certain point, The price of the Core box and all add-ons that come after.

Currently I have dedicated myself to Owning 2 Boxes and 2 of all the add-ons, that limits me to the max of 12 players.

I have spoke to the initial players about this limitation but I have gotten the general idea that all my players will just be sticking to buying the class decks and not investing further into the game.

Any advice from anyone dealing with the same?

Before anyone mentions it, adding another game day for different players is not an option.

Most of the RPG books either say everything is legal except, or only the following is legal, The Advanced Class Guide does not and lists everything individually, because of that we can't assume things not listed are either legal or not.

All of the problems are in the Archetype chapter section and Additional resources just states "all archetypes on pages 75–133 are legal for play, except" not everything is that section are archetypes.

The Advanced Class Guide Additional Resources is missing if any of the following is legal:

New Alchemist Discoveries Pg. 75: No listing on if they are legal or not.

New Barbarian Rage Powers Pg. 80: No listing on if they are legal or not.

New Dares for Gunslinger Pg. 94: No listing on if they are legal or not.

New Magus Arcana Pg. 104: No listing on if they are legal or not.

New Barbarian/Skald Rage Powers Pg. 114: No listing on if they are legal or not.

New Combat Style Pg. 118: No listing on if they are legal or not.

So something like this month does not happen I would like to request a new Combined Shipping Option.

Currently with all my subscription I only really care about the Pathfinder Roleplaying/Golarion RPG books, for all others I don't care if they get pushed back a month.

I know a while back you set up with your printer to make sure all your Pathfinder Roleplaying/Golarion RPG books get to you at the same time, but as seen with this month that is not always possible with your other items made with different printer.

Currently my only options are either wait for everything to get to you before shipping our ship as they come. Neither is working for me and for many other as seen by the complaints this month.

Using the option Ship as soon as possible can cause multiple shipments in the same month which can cause a huge amount of shipping costs.

I would like a third option:

If the other products from your other printers have not arrived by the time shipping starts I would like those pushed to the next month shipping so I would still have a combined shipping therefore saving on shipping costs.

I would like an option to Ship the following subscriptions as soon as possible in one shipment:

Pathfinder Adventure Path
Pathfinder Campaign Setting
Pathfinder Modules
Pathfinder Player Companion
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game

And the following subscriptions to be pushed to the next month if they are not ready for shipment due to not arriving when the above has (Assuming they all use a different printer then the ones above):

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game
Pathfinder Battles
Pathfinder Cards
Pathfinder Comics
Pathfinder Maps
Pathfinder Pawns
Pathfinder Tales

This will allow me to get the products I use more regularly quicker while still getting the other products I use less often and save on shipping.

I know this will take some time to set up so if it is a request you can do I don't expect it to be implanted over night.

When PFS first started Josh right out made Philosophies not legal for PFS. Since then that has kind been de-emphasized but not really "Officially" made legal or at the least confusing if they are legal. The only philosophies I know are straight out legal with no confusion is Atheism and Pantheism (Additional Resources allow this).

PFS Guide Pg 10 wrote:
Otherwise, characters who do not receive powers from a divine source may choose to be atheists or to have no deity at all.

I would like to see them added as legal for PFS play, we can start with adding it to the FAQ then a future update of the PFS Guide.

Philosophies are big part of the world of Golarion and it is sad that we can't fully embrace them in PFS play. There are ways around that (Archetypes, traits, prestige classes) or seeing the rules from another certain point of view to get you around it, but when when I want to list my faith I have to pick a deity, a Pantheon, none or atheist. I would rather get the confusion out of it and state straight out that Philosophies are legal.

The rules even allow classes that have to pick deities follow a philosophy:

Inner Sea World Guide Pg 236 wrote:
Clerics who follow a philosophy must select a patron deity among the philosophy’s associated religions (they gain no additional benefits from adherence to a philosophy).

Also from Dragon Empires Gazetteer:

Inner Dragon Empires Gazetteer Pg 56 wrote:
Nothing prevents Tians from being adherents of these philosophies and devoted worshipers of a god; nothing about such an arrangement is strange to them.

Of Course we don't have to allow every Philosophy to be legal, and any Philosophies that does not state associated religions should not be allowed by those that need to pick a Deity, but there are a bunch we should allow.

Here is a list to help Mike and John track them down.

Ones that should be Allowed to be Legal:

Atheism (Laws of Man) – Sources: Inner Sea World Guide, Faiths & Philosophies
Diabolism – Sources: Inner Sea World Guide
The Green Faith – Sources: Inner Sea World Guide, Faiths & Philosophies
Ichimeiyo – Sources: Dragon Empires Gazetteer, Faiths & Philosophies
Pao-Lung – Sources: Dragon Empires Gazetteer
The Prophecies of Kalistrade – Sources: Inner Sea World Guide, Faiths & Philosophies
Sangpotshi, the River of Life – Sources: Dragon Empires Gazetteer, Faiths & Philosophies
Tamashigo – Sources: Dragon Empires Gazetteer

Other Philosophies that are not as explicitly defined as those above but are part of Golarion:

Agnosticism
Common Rule
Shamanism (Juju, totemism, ancestor worship, etc.)

We can also open up other rules associated with Philosophies and make it more clear for those who are confused about taking a trait that says you need to be a follower of a Philosophy when then seem to be not allowed.

As an example you can allow the Customized Summon List for Green Faith followers from Wrath of the Righteous: Demon's Heresy.

One of the few Philosophies I would right out say we should not allow is The Whispering Way because it does not work well with PFS.

It is that time of year to start getting ready for the San Antonio Convention ChimaeraCon 2014 – April 4 – 6.

Once again I am adding a more tables this year so I am going to need a lot more GMs to make this year another success! Just like last year if you GM 2 games you get in for free. Also something new this year, I have added a session for volunteering for Sign-in Desk. The convention has gotten too large for me to do on my own. Just like GMing if you volunteer for 2 slots you get in for free. If you just want to play I look forward to seeing you there as well. If you would like to GM/Play please register and sign up for a game at the following Warhorn site:

https://warhorn.net/events/chimaeracon-2014-pfs

You will need to pre-register to get an convention badge for the event on their web page:

To tell the truth I have not enjoyed a PFS blog in awhile, the last one I enjoyed was the Pathfinder Society in Portugal blog.

That said I would like to start a thread so we can recommend what we would love to see in future Blogs

I would love to see Bios of Venture Captains (in game) and Faction heads.

This would bring something that we can use in our games when running the Venture Captains and Faction heads and give the players a bit more knowledge of their leadership for their characters so they can roleplay better. It would also bring their portraits if used into the community use policy.

What other suggestions do we have out there?

I noticed something, the Poisoner Rogue archetype ability Master Poisoner is legal while the Alchemist discovery Poison Conversion is not. They both end up doing the same thing though they go about it differently.

APG pg 134 wrote:
Master Poisoner (Ex): At 3rd level, a poisoner can use Craft (alchemy) to change the type of a poison. This requires 1 hour of work with an alchemist’s lab and a Craft (alchemy) skill check with a DC equal to the poison’s DC. If successful, the poison’s type changes to contact, ingested, inhaled, or injury. If the check fails, the poison is ruined. The poisoner also receives a bonus on Craft (alchemy) skill checks when working with poison equal to 1/2 her rogue level. This ability replaces trap sense.
UC pg 24 wrote:
Poison Conversion: By spending 1 minute, the alchemist can convert 1 dose of poison from its current type (contact, ingested, inhaled, or injury) to another type. For example, the alchemist can convert a dose of Small centipede poison (an injury poison) to an inhaled poison. This process requires an alchemy lab. An alchemist must be at least 6th level before selecting this discovery.

I will admit it takes a bit more work for the Rogue ability to use because it requires a roll, but the roll is easy to succeed at.

The main difference

Master Poisoner takes 1 hour vs. poison Conversion taking 1 minute. While an hour can be a problem in a pinch you can easily have them done prior to an adventure and I see no reason it would not keep converted between adventures

Master poisoner requires a skill check vs. poison Conversion not requiring one. This could be a problem at low levels but craft alchemy and the bonus you get from the archetype make this roll not that difficult.

Master poisoner you get at level 3 vs. poison Conversion you can't get until level 6.

To get Master poisoner you lose to rogue abilities trapfinding and trap sense, not huge loses vs. poison Conversion you just pick it up as a discovery with no prerequisite.

Though they are different in the way they get to the end product they both do the same thing, you can change the poison’s type to contact, ingested, inhaled, or injury.

I am not sure I understand why one is not allowed when the other is. I would love to see that reconsidered.

On that same line of thought because of similar reasons I would argue that Daggermark poisoner should be made legal as well. It also goes so well with the Assassins’ Guild vanity.

So I had a player argue with me last night about this ruling and nothing he pointed to me on the boards from the developers changed my opinion on the rule I made so I am bringing the specifics out to here to see the difference in opinions and maybe a confirmation of my ruling or a change of my opinion.

So lets start of with the relevant rules of stealth because that I were my ruling is coming from..

Core pg 106 wrote:
Breaking Stealth: When you start your turn using Stealth, you can leave cover or concealment and remain unobserved as long as you succeed at a Stealth check and end your turn in cover or concealment. Your Stealth immediately ends after you make an attack roll, whether or not the attack is successful (except when sniping as noted below).

So you can come out of cover an still be in stealth as long as you succeed at a Stealth check and end your turn in cover or concealment. You can also attack after coming out of cover but that will end you stealth after your attack.

Got it, understand it. The problem I had was that I had a player that wanted to move full movement from starting in stealth (so -5 to roll) attack someone at a point in that movement where he would not been able to get back into cover even if he did not attack.

I ruled since he moved beyond the point of being able to get back into cover he was no longer legally in stealth therefore he could not get an attack unobserved. He stated that being able to get back into cover was not important that he was still in stealth since he started the turn in stealth. Basically he could walk into a room from starting in stealth and not be seen until the end of his movement if he was not behind cover at that point.

I insisted that to be able to attack while in stealth he must first be at least able to finish the first condition of stealth even if he was not going to, which states you can leave cover or concealment and remain unobserved as long as you succeed at a Stealth check and end your turn in cover or concealment. Since he could never complete that condition because he would never be able to get back into concealment, he was not legally in stealth.

What do you all think?

I would love some logical opinions or links to posts by developers.

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?

So I am good on the FAQ but I do have one question.

I know that if a poison appears on a chronicle sheet anyone can purchase them and that Alchemists can craft the list of poisons in the FAQ and Additional resources. My Question is can Alchemists craft the poisons found on chronicle sheets and are they limited to the allowed doses on the chronicle sheet?

Right now I am assuming they can craft them but can only craft the amount of doses allowed by the chronicle sheet.

Change

Pathfinder Comics Deluxe to Non Deluxe

For Customer service tracking purposes below are the reasons for the change:

Pathfinder Battles - Price is significantly too high on top of the shipping/handling charge compared to all other major online Miniature Dealers or local Game store.

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game - Lack of local friends interested in playing.

Pathfinder Comics Deluxe change to Non Deluxe - Removal of Maps/mini adventure and the addition of a second comic set made this less cost effective.

For all 3 Subscription the lack of Subscriber perks compared to your other subscription (Free PDFs) is also a major reason I am cancelling/changing them.

So I am trying to figure out how the Rogue Talent Resiliency works in conjunction with the Aegis of Recovery.

Relevant text

PF Core pg 68 wrote:
Resiliency (Ex): Once per day, a rogue with this ability can gain a number of temporary hit points equal to the rogue’s level. Activating this ability is an immediate action that can only be performed when she is brought to below 0 hit points. This ability can be used to prevent her from dying. These temporary hit points last for 1 minute. If the rogue’s hit points drop below 0 due to the loss of these temporary hit points, she falls unconscious and is dying as normal.
Ultimate Equipment pg 254 wrote:
Aegis of Recovery...Should the wearer ever drop below 0 hit points, the aegis heals the wearer for 2d8+3 points of damage and then crumbles to dust.

So I am thinking they will work in conjunction in either 2 ways. They will either both go off when you go below 0 hit points or Resiliency would go off before setting off the Aegis of Recovery because Resiliency mentions it is an immediate action while Aegis of Recovery does not mention what kind of action it is.

What are others thoughts on this?

I noticed I am being charged $4 for the Reta's Bridesmaid. should I not be charged $2 for ordering the GenCon Exclusive Goblin Comic as well? That was the promotion when I made the order.
