I liked the longer age spans for the Dhampires and Aasimars and Tieflings. In a home Carrion Crown game I am in, I have an Aasimar cleric of Iomedae. My friend is playing an Aasimar Paladin of Iomedae. These characters are brothers. We are having fun. if my GM brings it up, I will ask him to keep things the same. What does it matter that the ages have been errataed? In the link that Black Blood Troll kindly provided where James Jacobs said that they intended for Assimars etc to age as humans.

In that post James Jacobs also suggested that it would be a red flag if you sit at a PFS table with a GM that does not allow your aasimar character to have a human starting age (when they had longer starting ages in the ARG)

I will admit, If a, PFS GM is so nit picky, that he wants me to change the age of my Aasimar character to match that of the current Errata, that would be a red flag for me to find another table to play at. That being said, I would understand the Favored Class Bonus's being changed to the current errata. One has an effect on game mechanics, I don't think the other does. PFS i believe ignores age penalties and benefits.

Thank you all for your posts. This seems like a lively discussion. Again I haven't had time to read everyone's posts.

Ceberus 7, I suppose your dragon avatar image caught my eye.

Reading your post, you make some excellent points. Come to think of it, I think that is all the barbarian was doing, was hitting things hard.

Through traites, i have given my wizard Diplomacy as a class skill...and we were using that skill. not great, but at least a positive modifier.

Anyways thank you all for your posts, hopefully I will have time to read them soon.

That's not a coincidence. :) Akiton has always been our Pulp Mars analogue, and Castrovel our Pulp Venus (though we've admittedly try to add things to both that aren't particularly pulp inspired, just to mix things up).

I'm glad to hear they will come out eventually. Now I'm going to take a look at the new iconics for the psychic adventures.

I have just down loaded the new Occult Adventures Iconics which i will have to read later. at first glance they look very interesting.

I still have the Advanced Players Guide pre generated characters, the Alchemist, the Oracle and the Cavalier.

I was wondering will we see an updated version of these pre gens plus a pregen for the inquisitor, witch and summoner?

I am guessing with the pace of things, and prioritization, we will most likely not see these characters as pre gens.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks

I have a 8th level sylph wizard with the air speciality. I am thoroughly enjoying the character. My theme for the character not surprisingly is wind, electrical damage, storms etc.....So I am having lots of fun with Aggressive Thunder Cloud, Lightning Bolt, Ball Lightning etc.....

Thursday night I went to a Pathfinder Society game at, Game Theory in Raleigh NC, I had signed up to play Darkest Vengeance. I arrived little early. I noticed there was another player with a wizard! We spent some time comparing spell lists and picking spells we wanted to share before the game. We also compared what we were planning to have our wizards prepare for the game.

We both decided to prepare a couple of Haste spells, so we would have 4 haste spells available for the adventure.

In our party we also had a player, a good friend, with a hyped up "gnoll" barbarian with a Falchion, a real heavy hitter. The character is actually some sort of tiefling that looks like a gnoll. My friend just likes gnolls and Lamasthu.

Anyways back to the spell selection....While looking at what I could do with a lightning bolt, I realized, with reflex saves, Evasion...etc....my 8d6 lighting bolt, was going to cause much less damage then the barbarian.....Haste+ Barbarian was my most effective combination for dealing damage.

Anyways, to me it seems the martial characters, Barbarian, fighter etc do far more damage a round consistently then the evocation magic my wizard wields. So why do martial's feel they don't have "nice things"?.

Thoughts?

I have done this on occasion.

I get a new AP, make 4 characters and begin running them through the first book.

I guess I have GMed and ran 4 pcs for a few reasons: sometimes it can be fun, I also am curious to see how various combinations of character classes will work together as a team, I also do it as an exercise to gain a better understanding of the game and how the rules work. I end of spending allot of time looking up rules etc...it gives me a firmer grasp of things.

But If given the choice i would prefer to play at a game with Gm and real players.

I have a quick question: what are the rules for a wizard scribing a scroll in PFS? Does he have to purchase a new scroll? Does he have access to the society's library?

What are the costs for a wizard adding spells to his spell book? ( Excluding copying from a found spell book, or a found scroll)

I assume you need to use the scribing costs listed on page 219 of the core rule book.

Thank you

Lots of people have differing opinions about wether Dex damage multiplies 1x5 times the same way Str does in the case of the unchained rogue's class ability.

As a GM, at my table in a home game I will say no It does not. I am not going to bother to quote a ruling. As a PFS GM I will also say no it will not. Unless it specifically is spelled out in a FAQ I will say no.

My reasonings are as follows, 1) the Str. score determines the amount of weight you carry and the amount of damage you do with a melee or thrown weapon (like a hand axe).

Comparably your Dexterity, with the unchained rogues class ability, determines your melee to hit and damage modifier, your to hit modifier with a ranged weapon.......and a modifier to your AC and a modifier to initiative.

I think that is more then enough for the Dex score to deal with, so no 1.5 modifier while wielded 2 handed.

There we are, that is my opinion and how I would rule at a home table or PFS table.

This is an interesting thread to read. I will enjoy reading what people have to post.

Jack of Nothing. I understand your wanting to use most of the materiel in a book. It sounds like you are talking about the Advanced Race Guide.

Now to your comment: "its bad enough we have to buy books in order to use anything from them but a chunk of the book we cant use anyways":

I would like Paizo to stay in business. They stay in business by selling adventure paths and other books. So from my perspective, it isn't bad that you have to buy the book of the materiel you want to use. I believe a less expensive alternative is purchasing a PDF of the product.

Now in my opinion there is a very good reason why chunks of materiel are not allowed in PFS.
Take the Words of Power in the Ultimate Magic, for example, this is a distinct subsystem of magic. If it were allowed, it would further complicate things and many GMs would have to learn an entirely new sub system.

Besides, the PFS staff have to decide what fits into the theme of the campaign and what does not.

So in the case of the advanced race guide, they have decided to reward people who volunteer their time at conventions to GM by giving them "race" boons. These boons allow you to play a normally prohibited race.

Just as you would like to play the weird stuff, there are plenty of people who don't want the weird stuff at their table. So the Paizo staff has to walk a tightrope.

Anyways, I hope these thoughts were somewhat helpful.

Well the nice thing about having things undefined, or un mapped, is that you can put what ever you like there, say a grassland with mongols, or the pit of gormuz with its surrounding desert and mountain chains.

fan map

This might help. According to this fan map, there is mountain range called the worlds edge mountains, they start at the castroval sea and travel in a cresent arch along the eastern edge of Galt Taldor and Qadira where it curves around into a semicircle on the nortern edge of the empire of kelish which Kidira is a province or satrapy of.

on the inside of this arch of mountains is a desert, a second smaller ring of hills, then a huge pit, namely the pit of Gormuz. It looks almost like a meteor impact with an inner and outer circular ridges.

on the eastern border of that is the Catroval sea.

while not official i hope it helps,

What would you recommend?

Gullyble Dwarf I think is right. Most likely your character will have the only fire arm for hundreds of miles around.

In my home campaigns, because I dislike the inclusion of super science and guns, i have the technic blow up silver mount, and the people in Alkenstar blow themselves up as well. so neither super sciience nor guns are available.

But that is simply a matter of my personal preference. Alkenstar and Numeria is there for people who like to have those things included in their game,

Well, I have a subscription to the card game I have the Rise of the Runelords boxed set, and all of the additions from the skin saw murders to the spires of xin shallast. While I like fantasy, I am not thrilled about pirates. I don't mind playing in a pirate game occasionally, but unlike Lodge from The Gamers Dorkness Rising, I do not think everything is better with pirates.

I have given my skulls and shackles boxed set and all of the expansions through from Hells Heart to a good friend who is running a pathfinder adventure card game table along with Pathfinder Society games.

I was happy with Rise of the Rune Lords, but wasn't thrilled with the pirates, the skulls and shackles theme so I gave it away. Right now i am considering wether to keep my subscription. I guess I am just not excited about the card game. What I enjoy is the company of the friends I play with, not necessarily the card game. Perhaps it is just the organized play version of the card game that I am not thrilled about.

This is an interesting discussion.

To answer the OPs question I would be willing to pay 4.99 to support the production of 3 scenarios a month.

I may be wrong but I think the price has always been 3.99. I'm surprised the price hasn't gone up over the past years.

However I do think, if we had 3 scenarios a month, people would immediately begin clamoring for 4 scenarios a month.

Anyways, I would be willing to pay a little more for scenarios.

Silver Crusade *****

Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

Also something else to consider. I have been playing D&D then PFS since i was ten or eleven. I don't really remember. I think I started with Marvel Superheroes first, but anyways, I am familiar with this system because i have been playing with it for a very long time, and I have also watched this system evolve over the years.

Now, if I were presented with this system and I had no experience with it, I may find it quite overwhelming.

I also feel that the core rule book may be more then enough to digest.

Another possibility may be that this player may just be having fun hanging out with a friend, and may not want to be bothered with all of the "fiddly" bits of the rules.

as Mr. Feldman mentioned up thread, these players may be interested in the story of the scenario and their character's story, and are not overly interested in mechanics.

I have also had players who began with a pre-gen and decided to stick with the pre-gen, and simply called the character by a different name because they had become familiar with the character and were not ready to branch out quite yet.

Anyways, that's just a couple of thoughts.

I remember the Midnight Mauler, Cypher Mage Dilemma, Day of the Demon, and then Bone keep level 1, were all special scenarios released earlier that a VO or a 4-5 star GM could run.
I think last year we had Bone Keep level 1.

Is there any word on what we might have this year? Thanks

The Fox,

I used to be the VC for Vermont & Western MA. I stepped down earlier this year because I moved.

I remember store coordinators in groups just starting in Western MA, would often scramble to make sure we had enough people to make a table. I was often either the 4th player, 3rd player, or the GM with 3 players.

So I think there are some excellent suggestions The Fox.

1) breaking the scenario into two slots, so the game session fits into everyones real life schedule. This is an excellent suggestion.

2) Jack Amy's suggestion of playing through a series of modules, is also an excellent suggestion. this way you are not necessarily bound by a 5 hour time block in which to get a 5 hour scenario done, when you may need smaller units of time.

3) Has somebody suggested an Adventure Path? You can get PFS credit for playing an adventure path in campaign mode. Campaign mode is where you make your own characters, and as you play through the adventure path, certain sections of the adventure path are picked to be "sanctioned" for PFS play, and you can pass credit for playing through these sections to a PFS character.

I agree, I would be much more concerned about inclusive, rather then exclusive,

Best of luck,
Myles Crocker

This may not be of too much help, but one of my favorite lines from that Duel between Inigo and The Dread Pirate Roberts was

"There is something you don't know......I am not left handed!"

We have both core and classic here in my area in Durham NC. Tonight I'm going to play in a core game.

For someone like myself, who has played almost everything and GMed a fair amount, the Core game gives me a chance to play. On the GMing side, core seems a little more manageable.

But I like both.

From my limited understanding, the Expanded Preparation feat allows an arcanist to prepare an additional spell.

So for example, If the arcanist can only prepare one spell a day, then this feat allows the Arcanist to prepare two spells.

At least in the game I am playing an arcanist in, that is how we are reading the feat.

I know there are allot of opinions about letting evil characters into PFS.

In all my years of GMing (is it decades now?) and playing, I have only seen one campaign work where the characters were evil.

They were all brothers sisters cousins of the same noble house, where their grandfather held the title and was the lord of the house. I ran the family like it was a mafia organization. It worked....the players cooperated when they had to, and under cut each other as well, What can I say, they behaved like Lannisters.

Every single other time the player with an "evil" character screwed the party over, and this led to a PVP fight, which ultimately led to somebody leaving the gaming group.

So, in my opinion, allowing PCs to play an evil alignment in PFS is a bad idea. period. I think some others said it much better then I.

NO!

And I'm pretty sure, if evil alignments are allowed, I'll just play home games, and drop PFS like a hot potato.

I have a quick question.

I was playing in eyes of the ten last year. One of our opponents was casting a spell. After a successful spell craft roll to identify the spell as a fire ball, One of the other casters in the group said I cast Emergency Force Shield. The GM ruled that the emergency force shield wouldn't form in time to protect the party from a fire ball.

What do you all think?

Thank you

I for one think the Core is a brilliant idea. Now I can only speak for myself.

I have done allot of GMing, served as a VC for Vermont, I have played almost everything. Luckily I have been invited into a couple of home games I was beginning to lose some interest in PFS. For me this has perked my interest in PFS again.

I think and It may have been mentioned up thread.....that this will provide a way for veteran players to get together with new players and play together at the same table.

With the Core campaign, it puts veteran and new players on much more of a level playing field.

From the GM's perspective the core campaign is much more manageable. And its optional.

So all in all i think the core campaign is a good idea, and I am interested in it.

I will strongly discourage people from using electronic dice rolling programs at my table. I feel that I as a GM have the right to say that I would not like electronic dice rollers at my table.

Every so often there are exceptions, but as a rule I dislike them, and do not want them at my table.

I have noticed that when people are using their electronic tablet/ipad / android / iphone....lap top etc with a program on it, they simply poke it and announce their result. There is no build up no anticipation to what they have rolled. In general, i have noticed these players are a little less engaged with the table.

Where as with dice, people are more interested in what their fellow players roll, especially the roll is made in the center of the table. Everybody is thrilled when someone rolls a 20, confirms a critical etc.....or groans in sympathy when someone rolls a 1 and their character fails their reflex check and misses the rope as they fall....or fail their saving throw.

So when someone shows up with an electronic dice roller and no dice. I am considerate enough to offer one of my own sets of dice which I keep just for this purpose.
