So, I DM RotRL with SS together in one huge campaign.
Since one of the players got his shadowy companion (from the Shadowdancer PrCl), that Shadow is starting to get a nuisance, especially the STR damaging stuff! That was especially hard, against the giants, but he's using it against almost every opponent.

Anyway, I wonder now, if anyone else experienced those problems, and what you did against it.

I know, there are ways to stop that damaging-thing, but on the other hand, it's that fine line between geeting rid of a nuisance and allowing a player to use one of his Class Features.

Any experiences or maybe ways to work with that "problem"?!
Every answer is welcome! :)

This thread made me think about creating PCs.

It seems, and I have experienced this a lot of times, that there are two different ways to approach a new pc you want to play.

Rules-wise, or Story-wise.

Its very rare to have a player, wo comes to me, with a picture of a pc, complete with a background, with flaws and fears, things that motivate him, etc., that is not perfectly min/maxed.
Normally players come and say they found out a great combo of combining X with Z, which makes a great pc, who should be able to easily do Y.

What I, as a long-time GM (I am dming for over 30 years now) experienced time and time again is, that players see the rules only as a way to find loop-holes, or ways to built the (technically) best character one can have.
This is sad, as the rules are open enough to play a lot of styles.

I always try to tell my players to first come up with an idea of a person they want to play, not looking at the rules, until the vision of the pc is completed.
It's not bad to not have the best values in attributes you could possibly have according to the rules. Because, if the players don't try to get the most out of the rules, the GM certainly has an easier time during play. Not to kill them off, but to challenge them.

So, what I mean, in the end, is probably (I don't know if I managed to get along what I mean, english is still hard, but...):
I, as the GM don't like it, when players show me the class, prestige class and other rules stuff they want to play. I love it, when a player says, I envisioned a person, who is/can/loves to, etc.
This makes it so much easier to run the game in a lot of ways. Being that incorporating the pcs into the storyline of the campaign, or properly challenge the pcs.

What did you guys experience, think of this...

Spoiler:

On p.18 it is said, that Harg doesn't dare to oppose Kreed and that he would start doling out true justice, if he would get support from the citizens if Falcon's Hollow.

Does this match with his alignment of NE as stated on p.15?

I am in the planing stages for this module.

Spoiler:

I wonder, if it might be a good idea (I know, it's said otherwise in the module), to let the pcs actually be townsfolk.
I think, it might be easier to motivate them to investigate the collapsed tower and all that is behind it.
I, personally think, that it will not be too bad, if the pcs know one or two things about the town. They don't have to know much about the history of it's founder, so that there will be enough to find out about the twon they're living in.

Any thoughts? Did someone already tried this?

We had this idea/discussion a few days ago, as it never happened that a player of a fighter character did not choose to take PA as a feat.
And, it seems, that PA is necessary for the fighter anyway.

So, we had the situation that my pc fought with an undead bane weapon vs an incorpreal undead creature.
My DM told me, that the whole damage gets cut in half vs that creature. I argued, that the xtra 2d6 from the bane quality should get through completely.
I could'nt find any rule on this. Does anyone here know's what is correct?

... so that I can insert THE ASYLUM STONE?

I run both campaigns together for one group (with skipping Foxglove Manor and part 2 of SS).

Spoiler:
I have the whole campaign laid out by now, but somehow don't know how to get the players to go to Kaer Maga (after they've beaten Barl Breakbones on Hook Mountain) instead of running straight to Sandpoint in order to help vs. the Giant's attack on the town.

Any ideas out there?! I seem to have a brain-blank on that by now... ;)

Last session, my players decided to visit this little island. As I haven't much info about it, I decided to play some mind-tricks with them, which made them turn around, leaving the island on its own - for now...

Now I wonder, if anyone can tell me, if there's more info, other than that in the Jade Regent AP, and one of the issues of the PF comic?

I don't know what to do, if the go there again...

I know, it's been said a hundred times, but it can,t be said enough: Paizo's customer service is awesome!

They never make a fuss about anything.
Canceling a subscription is so easy! I am german, and canceling a sub here in Germany is a huge pain!
You have to cancle a certain amount of time beforehand, otherwise the sub get's extended another year automatically.
With Paizo? Just shoot them an eMail, and - done!

So, again, thank you for being so awesomely fuss-free, down-to-earth and uncomplicated as you are!

Ok, I've read so many posts asking about which advancement track to use, what to change for parties of more, or less than 4 pcs, and what encounters to use, to not fall behind, that I started to wonder, how many of you guys take xps serious?!
I know, they have to be in the rules-system, but I don't use them at all!

I always tell my players, that they will level up, when the time is right regarding my campaign-planning. It's so much easier to plan a campaign, and it makes it easier to insert other stuff, which is not part of an AP, for example.

In the end, it's not GM vs players, so my players know that I won't cheat them, or keep them less effective against opponents on purpose.

How do you guys do XPs? Do you use them as precisely as possible, or any other way?

I missed such a list, and because there's so much info stored in the various articles, and taking every single AP from my shelf to find a special article is too much work, I thought I could compile such a list. Maybe some of you find it helpful, so I decided to post it here.
I only listed the accompanying articles, and didn't include the Journals or Bestiary (although a full list of the monsters to be found there would be cool as well). Further, from AP 49 on, Paizo included articles like the NPC Gallery and the Treasure-Section, which I also kept out of the list.
Entries written in capital letters are articles about a god, and entries written within "" are Set Pieces, which appeared from AP 13 through 24. If you find mistakes, just post them here. I plan to update this list in the future.

I just realized, after finishing my Darkmoon campaign and starting RotRL, that Varisia doesn't have it's own guide.
The Guide to Darkmoon Vale was a tremendous help during gaming and preparing, as a "one place to look stuff up"-source.
But, unfortunately, there's no such thing for Varisia! All infos are scattered throughout other products - Jade Regent #1, articles in other APs, etc...
Ok, we have the Companion, but I really would love to get my DM sourcebook, called Guide to Varisia, 64 pages of awesome goodness!

I really like the paper minis line.
I have one issue, which came up repeatedly during gaming.

It is far easier to use a swarm mini, if it is just outright flat, not a figure, like the other ones.
It's easier to move it around, and it is far more obvious who is caught in the swarm after it moved...

So, would it be possible to just give us a picture of a swarm (of the correct size), without the base, which can be laid onto the battlemap?

- Pathfinder Chronicle? I mean, a little (or rather big) journal of a pathfinder, who travelled Varisia, for example? With little (maybe inaccurate) maps of dungeons, villages, sketches of people or monsters, descriptions of whatever...

I really want to SEE one of those published volumes!
It would be also great to give it to the players, at least once in their PF-carreers.

As topics could be used:

- Rise of the Runelords, or any other "old" AP.
- One of the modules...
- Something totally unrelated to an AP or module - a mission which only scratches on things we (DM or players) already know.

I need some advice from someone who has already DMed the AP. 
Beware - SPOILERS for CC and the Carion Hill-Module!!!

The background… (spoilered, to keep the post clean):

Spoiler:
… I started a group of players new to PF last year, and they wanted to try it first. So I decided to DM the Falcon Hollow series. But after two sessions, they totally jumped on the system and the world and wanted for more! Now they have such cool backgroundstories for their pcs, that I just don’t want to start with new pcs, and an AP.

The group is level 5 and has played through the following modules:
- Falcon Hollows Last Hope
- Crown of the Kobold King
- Some sneaking around in Kreeds manor to free Ulizmilla… :)
- they are now in the middle of Return of the Kobold King.

So I wonder how to proceed from here on. I wanted to get them into the Carrion Crown AP somehow, starting with Broken Moon, because it somehow fits to the Drazmorg story. So I have the following sequence in mind:

- Hungry are the Dead: adjusted to Level 5
Drazmorg found the seal and the Ectoplasma, which Adivion needs, below the monastery featured in Crown of the Kobold King. The group will encounter Adivion in Falcon Hollow, while he’s visiting to get the Ectoplasma first hand from Drazmorg.

- Carrion Hill: adjusted to Level 6
The PCs get invited by judge Daramid, who is a friend of the father of one of the PCs (who’s also a member of the Paladine Eye). Daramid explains what happened “during the first two parts of the AP”, and that they fear that someone is trying to get all the incredients for the crown. The release of the Shogotth is only a diversion to be able to steal the seasage effigy, which was hidden somewhere below Carrion Hill.
Judge Daramid functions as a tool to inform the PCs of whatever they need to know to be able to start the AP with part 3.

One of the PCs is desperately searching infos about her past (and future), which she might find in the library of the Ascanor Lodge…

My questions:
- Do I have to take care of something else?
- Would Drazmorg work as well as the BBEG of the AP, if I manage to let him survive?
- Any idea what would cause me troubles with all of that?

Thanx already for reading this lengthy post!

I had a discussion with my DM the other day. During a fight, my rogue got into a flanking position, and I took my Sneak-dice, when my DM said, I am not flanking at all.
The other flanker was our oracle, and my DM explained, that spell-users don't threaten adjacent enemies...

I never heard of this before and couldn't find a rule for this.

I just downloaded the Kobold Quarterly 22, which contains "A Pathfinder Society Guide to Varisia". (p. 76f)

Under the entry of Korvosa it is written that

Spoiler:
The city is home to Varisia’s only monarchy, and Sickly King Eodred II currently occupies the Crimson Throne.

Isn't this guide meant to be for season 4 and isn't Shattered Star an official sequel to the first three APs?

If so, the above should be corrected, or am I totally wrong?

So, I started up a Falcon Hollow Campaign with players new to the PF-System. As it happens, they totally love the system and want more...
I haven't planned for more than REVENGE OF THE KOBOLD KING, and decided it is time to switch over to an AP.
I decided for the CC, starting with BROKEN MOON.

Here are my ideas so far...

Spoiler:

I had the idea, to make Drazmorg the BBEG, exchanging him with Adivion Adrissant. He has found the formula for the elixir below Droska's. So when my PCs finally play through HUNGRY ARE THE DEAD, they will not fight Drazmorg, but his most trusted Apprentice, who he left behind to wreac havoc in the area in the name of the Whispering Way. Of course, my players will encounter Lucimar as well, who is after Drazmorg who starts stealing his position in the Whispering Way.
I adapted HUNGRY ARE THE DEAD for level 5, than I have to somehow get them to CARRION HILL (which I have adapted to level 6).

There, I plan to have a meeting with Judge Daramid, who shall fill them in on any info needed from part 1 and 2 of the AP. From there on, I want to start with BROKEN MOON.

My questions now, to anyone who has read/played/DMed through Carrion Crown.

1) Which infos do I need to give my players from parts 1 and 2.
- In addition to the infos Drazmorg has found below Droskar's about the elixir, he also already has found the ghostly spirit of the last good abbot of the monastery, the ectoplasmic element which is required for the elixir.
- The Keepers in the Carrion Hill module are contracted by Drazmorg to wreak Havoc in the city, so that no one realizes that the Seasage Effigy gets stolen (which has been stored somewhere in Carrion Hill).

2) When do the players exactly get to know what the BBEG in the CC-AP is about to do?

3) What do you think I have to take into account with making Drazmorg the BBEG of the whole AP.

4) Any other issues I have to take care off?!


Thanx, for being that patient while reading all of this lenghty post. I really hope someone here can give me some advice.

Now we are about to play Tower of the last Baron. Afterwards I wanted to go to Cheliax, because..ah well, doesn't matter really. I now want to know from someone who played CoT already, if I could start that AP with part 3... What did I miss in the first parts what I have to incorporate into the story?

True Death (Su) :(...)Spellcasters attempting to bring a creature back from the dead using raise dead or similar magic must make a caster level check with a DC equal to 15 + the assassin's level or the spell fails and the material component is wasted. (...)

Does the DC for that caster level check increase, if the assassine has meanwhile gained a level, or is the level the assassin had while killing the victim the one whichalways counts?

Two questions:

1) Does the mist created by the RED SHROUD ability move with the assassin? Is it centered on the assassin?

2) The mother of one of my PCs is a Red Mantis Assassin. She will be contracted by Thuldrin Kreed, once the PCs become a pain in his ...!
Either Mother nor daughter (the PC) will know this, although the daughter believes her mother to be an assassin...
Anyway, once the fight is on, I plan to let Mother drop the fight, once she realizes whom she got contracted to kill and start thinking about her life. Whatever happens, out of this rose the question:

What, if a Red Mantis Assassin realizes, that she has to change her life and stop following her assassin career? Does she retain her Red Mantis PrCl abilities?!

I just got my pdf and it's awesome, really!

As I just started a Darkmoonvale campaign, I checked that area first.
I realized, that Olfden got shifted a bit.
On the Darkmoonvale-Map, it is near the eastern border of the Arthfell Forest, which makes sense.

Spoiler:
as Olfden got attacked by hordes out of that Forest during the Night of the Silver Blood

Now it lies far more to the east, and very far away from Arthfell.

As my campaign started during the Night of the Silver Blood, and I situated Olfden where it is shown on the Darkmoonvale map, I would love to have an official answer, which map is more accurate now.

And thanx for that awesome product!

When you're flat-footed during a suprise round and the enemy uses its standard action to cast a fireball... Are you allowed a Ref-save?
Can't find something in the core book. Maybe I am too tired...


So, i will start dming this soon.
As Most Players are unfamiliar with pathfinder, I decided to let them start in Olfden during the night of the Silverblood. They will get attacked by wolves who run rampant in the city and enter the tavern where they meet with a contact (background story).

Any ideas what else to add during this encounter?
