Not bad, given that the hardcover is out of stock. :)

Is the first print gone? I didn't get mine yet

THE BIG RED BUTTON

The party is looking for this ancient temple trying to find it before the bad guys do, so that BBEG cannot be released from its magical trap.

We find it, find the chamber with this mechanimagical device that traps the BBEG, we destroy the controls, no way they can be operated ever again, we burn it, kick it, smash it, we throw everything at it.

Turns out the bad guys had beaten us to the punch, the BBEG is on the loose, and we have no way to put it back in its magical prison.

We still laugh about it, and have to retell the story if there are new players.

Bump, auction ends tomorrow!

Scarab Sages

Hi folks,

I am selling a HUGE lot of D&D minis, over 800+, including more than 150 large and 120 rares. Please see the listing for yourself. Keep an eye for my other auctions as I will also be downsizing my book collection significantly.

thanks!

Idea #1, play a sibbling of the paladin (ala Caramon/Raistlin dynamic)
Idea #2, is there a god that allows paladins and evil clerics? since you would be of the same religion there must be a church approved way for him to tolerate it.

Scarab Sages

Are people really asking paizo to create 4e? that's total parity between classes.

Wizards suck it up at low levels, and get rewarded for their sacrifice at higher levels.

GMs should tailor encounters to their group so everyone has an important role to play, and avoid having the spotlight on only one PC. It's not easy to do this *all* the time. Sometimes a specific character is the star of the session, sometimes that happens just for one encounter, and that's fine as long as it moves around from character to character.

I have mailed back the first chapter of hells rebels, I noticed an new order was opened for chapter 2, I thought you had cancelled my subscription? please make sure not to charge me or mail this one to me, thanks.

Scarab Sages

I am not interested in Hells Rebels.

Also, I have 3 chapters of Giantslayer on hold. I believe this is probably due to the Bigger Basic Flipmat being sold out, and I am extremely upset about this.

I have been waiting for this flipmat for years, as shown in these posts:

http://paizo.com/store/blog/v5748dyo5lg72?FlipMats-of-Unusual-Size-I-Dont-T hink-They-Exist#1

Now you decided to print it, and I am skipped over because I put it in my sidecart order in JUNE, that's 2 months ago, I am certain it wasn't sold out then.

This sucks BIG TIME.

DragonBelow I have two questions for you.

First, are you equating fun with challenge, or are you saying you desire both? I've GM'd and played in many games with very low challenge that were a ton of fun, and some of the least fun games I've been in have been HardMode [although there have been fun Hardmode games as well of course.]

Sure, I just think that games where the PCs mop the floor with their opponents on a regular basis, and without breaking a sweat, are not fun.

kyrt-ryder wrote:


Second, not every enemy needs to exploit a One Trick Pony's weakness. Perhaps 1/4th to 1/2 should suffice.

That's still too much, and there is no good explanation for it, also that means one, sometimes two times per session. Not to mention that then it becomes an arms-race between PC and DM, which makes things uglier.

Scarab Sages

Hi,

I used to play in a group with two players that liked to optimize characters. I have to admit I had a behavior similar to your DM.

Sometimes it got pretty ridiculous, but in the end they agreed to curb themselves, and that issue disappeared. They didn't play gimp characters though, they just weren't min-maxing to the fullest.

If that is not something you can do, or if after talking to your DM, he is not willing to change, then I suggest you find a different group. I know there is a lot of people that enjoy these types of game.

I don't know why your DM acts like that, but I can tell you why I did. I run pre-made adventures, and I don't have time to create my own, except perhaps for the occasional one-shot. When playing against optimized characters, the DM has to make adjustments or the game will not be challenging and fun. I work full time, and have other hobbies and responsibilities, I don't have time, or interest, to be changing encounters to increase the challenge they pose. Also, many times these type characters have a certain weakness due to their focus, and it is possible to be a challenge if you exploit it; however, I find this tactics breaks my personal suspension of disbelief as a DM, if suddenly every opponent that meets the PC has just the right amount of stuff/tactics/abilities to exploit that weakness.

It's a lot easier for one person to optimize the hell of their character, than it is for a DM to do the same for everything the PCs encounter. At least for me anyway.

Best of luck.

Thanks for the update. I was able to get things submitted. You should get an order confirmation email soon.

if you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know.

Thanks!

Since Chapter 1 JUST rotated out as a starting option, I should be able to get it added in once the the subscription is started.

Please let me know when you have submitted this order (it's not showing a payment method selected right now, so I can't submit it from my side).

I just added the payment method, I selected USPS Priority, assuming it's using the flat-rate options, if it's not please revert back to cheapest method possible.

Place the order at your earliest convenience, thanks!

If it was some weeks ago, I suspect the subscription starting options have changed since they were put in there originally, so they were not able to stay in your cart as they had been entered.

I'm not seeing anything that shows a price on our side, so I suspect that may just be some kind of caching issue. I would recommend logging out and logging back in to get that display to clear.

If you need any help getting the subscriptions started, please add the subscriptions back to your cart, let me know what you had been trying to start with, and we'll see what we can do.

Thanks!
~Sharaya

Sharaya, ok things seem ok now, I had to add the products again. I see it wants to start the sub with chapter 2, but I kind of need chapter 1 as well, is it possible to start the subscription back with chapter 1?

Thanks

Scarab Sages

I put them in my cart some weeks ago, then today, I went to edit my address before finally placing the order, because I moved since the last time I placed an order.

Scarab Sages

Hi,

I had somethings in my cart (PF Companion - Famliars and a Giantslayer subscription, but now they don't show up anymore, HOWEVER I still see the total there $27.03 and no products, can you please help me.

Scarab Sages

Scarab Sages

Wrath of the righteous

Map Folios

Free shipping (US only), thanks!

Scarab Sages

I didn't want the hassle of too many payments and shipments. What do you think would have been the optimum way to break it up?

Scarab Sages

You can find the lot here

Sorry US shipping only.

Also selling a complete set of Reign of Winter AP.

Scarab Sages

Hi,

I'm personally very disappointed with Occult Adventures. I SO wish they just went in cahoots with Dreamscarred Press and made that system "official".

I know it would be "cool", but it's unnecessary, you don't need paizo saying it's official. You can make it official in your games.

I have always been a huge psionics fan, and I have the DSP books, that's good enough for me. On the other hand I don't like certain official products, such as the mythic adventures, and I don't use them.

Scarab Sages

I'll be resubscribing for this one... now I wish there was a high level super module involving Drow to follow it :D

Scarab Sages

Does it include firearms rules from the pirate's guide? I like them better than the official PF gun rules.

Scarab Sages

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Neat, but each individual flip mat is of the same dimension as they have always been, there is just a bunch of them.

Here is hoping someday there will actually be a flip mat larger than 24x30.

Scarab Sages

thanks!

Scarab Sages

Don't care much about football myself, but I already used the discount :D

Scarab Sages

We play Pathfinder, and other games in rare occasions.

We're are currently playing Way of the Wicked, some in our group have spotty attendance, which makes it difficult to schedule a game (we're all adults, 30 and older).

We play once a month on Saturday afternoons.

If you're interested please send me a private message!

Scarab Sages

M

I would say Drake is getting "hosed" by the simultaneous flanking bonuses.

Interpreting flanking this way kind of mixes flanking with a readied action, since one of the opponents waits for the other to get in position to attack (and benefit from flanking). This would be Ok, except you use a move action to ready an action.

Being first level we're specially sensitive to this interpretation. though I don't know if Drake would've changed his action if he knew about it in advance.

HGoK, if this is the way you want to interpret this rule it's fine. We can take advantage of it too :), but just wanted to get a clarification before it gets set in stone.

Scarab Sages

Semus would be an archer, with ability to deal with traps, trying to fill the "rogue" role.

Afflicted kender!!!

Yes! I have a vision forming in my mind....

Scarab Sages

Looking at the link provided it, it has stats for regular Kender not afflicted, I'll check my 3.5 DL rulebooks in case there are any stats.

Scarab Sages

I want to introduce Semus Cloverleaf, Afflicted Kender - Ranger (Trapper), working on the character...

Scarab Sages

Wasn't Gilthanas a classic example of a Magus?

I would like to play something like that

Scarab Sages

Though bards are very useful, IMHO, a character that makes others better is most fun for the others characters.

As such I like mixed characters that can hold their own, Magus and Inquisitors in particular :)

Scarab Sages

I agree, I wouldn't want to play with this group, just walk away

Scarab Sages

thanks in advance

I DMed that adventure several years ago, it's pretty challenging, I don't think it will be a problem.

One of the great advantages of PFRPG is that it's compatible with 3.5, you can go through the trouble of converting it, or at least calculate things like CMB and CMD and play it straight from the adventure.

Good luck!
