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.

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!"

which might be kind of amusing coming from someone who is using both hands to wield a weapon :D

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.

I believe there is an arch type in the advanced class guide that lets a Magus cast spontaneously with the bard's spells known progression per level.

Yeah, I have to agree. What your friends are describing can NOT be PFO because they are describing something that isn't in the game yet.

I have a character who has played through the quest for perfection series. He has a boon that allows him to have an

:
Axe Beak as a mount.
. I have a watermarked printed page 29 from the Bestiary 3 so the GM can see the monster entry if he wants to.

If my character is using something outside the Core Rule book, I assume I have to provide the source materiel for the GM to peruse if he would like to correct?

I also have a character who has played through the Technic Siege and the SIlver Mount Collection. If my character purchases and uses the

:
timeworn laser pistol
would I need to provide a watermarked copy of page 25 of the Technology guide to the GM if he asks?

Let me turn that around. as a GM, if I am unfamiliar with the contents of the Technology Guide, and someone shows up with a character with the

:
laser pistol
can I ask him to produce some materiel so I can see how it works? What if the player doesn't have anything?

I guess I can only speak for myself. A couple of years ago I backed the Kick starter. I was excited about the game. I was also playing lots of World of Warcraft at that point of time as well.

Also I made contact with a few friends who were joining and were planning to form a guild group.....settlement? I seem to remember the name Hammer fall was mentioned.

Over the past year and a half or so, my interest in MMOs has diminished. I have also moved, and in my new home there are many more Pathfinder Society games to be involved in. In this area, (Raleigh-Durham NC) there are games in game stores offered every day of the week except Saturdays. Thankfully I have been invited into a couple of home games.

While talking to my group of five friends (I'm one of the five) who have been planning on giving Pathfinder Online a try, three of them mentioned that they have never played an MMO before. My other friend and I have some experience with MMOs, His experience with playing Lord of the Rings Online, and Knights of the Old Republic, and I have played World of Warcraft. We decided that sending completely fresh players into a PVP online MMo was somewhat like dumping creatures that did not know how to swim into a river infested with hungry piranhas.

So my friend has introduced them to Lord of the Rings Online, and my friends have been having a lovely time. they have a house, and another likes fishing..... they have commented on the beautiful graphics in the game the story lines etc....

By contrast they have been a bit frustrated with PFO. They mentioned going into a dungeon and having a good time killing monsters. But they were a bit irritated when their characters, weakened after fighting in the dungeon were ambushed by someone who was playing an assassin class and waiting to rob them at the mouth of the dungeon when they came out. They commented what was the point of having some sort of flagging system to discourage pointless PVP, if they had an assassin class who didn't suffer any consequences for killing other PCs.....one of my friends said if they continue to have a frustrating time on PFO, they can always go back to fishing on Lord of the Rings online.....It may be PFO is not for them.

That I guess has brought me around to my main reservation about PFO. Its the PVP aspect.
The Pathfinder RPG is fundamentally a cooperative game. You and your friends work together with your characters to over come and solve the challenges your GM puts before you. You "win" by working together as a team towards a common goal. In my opinion the PVP aspect of PFO fundamentally makes the game a competitive game. I am going to guess that the PVP nature of the game has made many people very hesitant to join PFO.

I may be wrong about this.

In short, at the moment. I am much less interested in MMOs. And because of my friends expressing their frustrations about PFO, I think i will give the game a pass for the present.

Dragon HunterQ, I took a look through the core rule book, and re read the section on the Wizard Specialization school and I found this interesting bit of text.

“specialist wizards receive an additional spell slot of each spell level he can cast, from 1st on up. Each day, a wizard can prepare a spell from his specialty school in that slot. This spell must be in the wizard’s spellbook” Page 79 of the Core Rule book.

I have been looking through the ACG. I noticed the spell Repair Undead. It is a Necromancy spell.
If this spell is in a Necromancer's Spell book, he can memorize this spell in his school specialty spell slot. The ACG was published years after the Core rule book.

So, I think I can memorize Air elemental spells that are on the Wizard's spell list and is in my character's spell book, that have been published after the APG in my air elemental wizard's extra speciality school spell slot.

Thank you

In PFs, what is the caster level of a Cure Light Wounds spell when cast from a wand?

I noticed you need to be 5th level to craft a wand. Does this mean the caster level of the spell would be 5th level?

Some of my characters I plan, others I don't .

I actually prefer not to plan and let my characters evolve organically. I think I prefer to not plan ahead. Often I am surprised with how my character has evolved.

I remember now this is 12 years ago or so, I was running a fun home game with some good friends. Two of those friends, literally fell asleep during our game. Luckily we had two couches. When it was time to fight, They were whacked with a throw pillow, would wake up and play until the combat was over. Initially we were irritated by this. One friend unfortunately suffered from chronic pain and was exhausted. He also provided his apartment for us to play in. The other player, a martial artist, trained very hard. He played a monk, and we enjoyed ( when he was awake) his meticulous description of how his unarmed attacks were being made, however he didn't always remember the "ki- abilites" the monk had in game.

Well, maybe for a beginner player a Magus may be too complicated to play. Perhaps a simple martial character may be more his speed.

Perhaps his character could get hit by a demonic curse that strips his character of any magical ability......Bye Bye Magus, Hello Fighter, and one of his big story points could be his quest to regain his magic?

I don't know maybe this was a bad idea.

I hope this helps

Hello I have a quick question

I have a PFS Elemental: Air specialist wizard. In the APG I have found the list of Elemental Air spells.

I also have Blood of the Elements. There is a list of Air Elemental spells on the back cover of the supplement.

If I find an Air elemental spell, that is on the Wizard's spell list on the back page of the Blood of Elements, but isn't on the elemental spell list in the APG, can my wizard, after learning and scribing one of these spells, can my wizard prepare one of these new spells in his Air Elemental school specialty slot? For that Matter, How about the Aggressive Thunder Cloud spell from the ACG?

Thank you

Personally I would prefer that the Iron Gods adventure path does not end up sanctioned. This is simply a personal preference. While I have enjoyed looking through the Iron Gods I have received through my proscription, and I found Numeria an interesting read, I enjoyed it because it was isolated in numeria. I wouldn't want the robots and tech in a home fantasy themed pathfinder game on Golarion. Also I don't want to see more numerian tech in Pathfinder Society. The Numerian themed Scenarios were the nose of the camel...I don't want the rest of the camel in the tent. Now this is simply my personal preference and opinion.

Anecdotal experience with the Arcane Archer

A couple of years ago, in 2012 I played through Eyes of the Ten. In our party we had a dwarven fighter, who was an archer. We also had an Arcane Archer in the party. I think the Arcane Archer was a combination wizerd/ranger/ Arcane archer. I don't know what the combination was.

Both characters were doing respectable damage. The spell casters, one of which was my character were rarely bothered by a melee situation.

There was one moment where our opponent was fleeing from us up some stairs down a corridor out of sight...and the Dwarven archer said, "yeah I got nothing, now way I'm going to get up those stairs to get a shot", and the Arcane Archer said " I got this". He shot an arrow at one of the walls. The arrow curved away from the wall, flew up the stairs, went down the hall way, and we heard an "oww" and then a thump.

We were all impressed. I think the guy playing the dwarven fighter said, "yeah my character just does damage, now he ( indicating the AA) does all sorts of cool things".

As ring of Gyges said, I don't believe there is a hard and fast ruling about this.

As a GM, I doubt i would stop a player from casting a raise dead, and then the restorations required to "clear a condition" at the end of a scenario.

I often play clerics, and I have yet to see a GM say....un no you cant cast a remove blindness the next day for another player.

The multi table specials as a rule of thumb are not released to the public during the year they run. The VOs have access to it, and people who are going to run a table at the event, often have the PDF of the multi table special added to their down loads in their account.

In past years the special "opened" up the year's "Meta Plot".

In August of 2010 it was "year of the Shadow Lodge"

In August of 2011 it was " Blood under Absalmom" during the Year of the Pheonix

in August of 2012 it was " Race for the Rune Carved Key" during the Year of the Risen Rune

In August of 2013 it was "Siege of the Diamond City". during the Year of the Demon

August of 2014 it was " Legacy of the Stone Lords" during the Year of the Sky Key.

This year Legacy of the Stone Lords both finished Year of the Demon's plot, and began Year of the Sky Key's plot.

I hope this helps

I may as well toss my two cents in.

The pattern for most threads seem to be, with the first 50 posts or so, people discuss things, then beyond that often threads devolve into a " This is what I think, I am right you are wrong".

Well more on topic. PFS VS home games.

I doubt I am going to add anything that hasn't been said up thread.

PFS

Pros:

Meet new people.

Learn new things.

Cons:

Tends to have lots of rules lawyers and min maxers,

The rate at which materiel is "leagalized" is daunting. Its a challenge to try and keep on top of everything.

I know this is an over simplification.

Home Games

Pros:

Game is at home.

Pros:

You are playing with your friends,

As a GM in a home game you have much more control over your game.

Con:

you may not like everyone you play with. often you are stuck with them.

Same people.....same people....same people.

I play both PFS and home games. I like them both. In my home game which i GM i got to terrorize my players with a carrion crawler. I can't do that in a PFS game.

With a PFS game, I just need to sign up for a game on war horn, grab my character and go. Here in the Raleigh/ Durham area PFS games are offered every day of the week except Saturdays. In terms of GMing, I prepare my scenario, and I will often have new players at the table whom I haven't met before.

Well there we are.

Tomorrow evening I am running a core only game with some friends on google hangout. Three of the four people playing are familiar with 3.5 but are just learning pathfinder.

I think they are having a good time.

We have a human paladin who has the two weapon fighting feat and fights with two short swords .

There is an elven cleric of Iori who serves as the knowledge specialist

And a Human Rogue

and Finally we have a a gnome sorcerer.

So all you need is the core rule book + Bestiary to play Pathfinder.

Enjoy, try new things, and most importantly have fun!

I liked Eberon. I think I have almost all the eberon books on my book shelves. I never got to either play or run an Eberon campaign. I remember offering a choice of campaigns for my players. They got to choose between an Eberon campaign, a Midnight campaign, or a Forgotten Realms campaign. They choose a Forgotten Realms campaign. I did run them through the Desert of Desolation Series.

But I digress. I liked the Eberron campaign setting. While I didn't like the halflings who rode velociraptors, I liked the rest of the campaign setting.

It would be an interesting exercise to convert Eberron to Pathfinder. I think the Alchemsit would fit well into the Eberon campaign setting.

Well anyways this is just my opinion.

I see no reason why a cleric of an evil god couldn't cast protection from evil. A cleric of an evil god would have as much to worry about from another evil cleric of another evil faith as they would from the clergy of a good faith.

Come to think of it, a cleric of a NE faith would have to also worry about members of his own faith as well.
