Swift, not every boon on a scenario's chronicle are for that PC only. There are a few that open spells or archetypes to all your characters. Mike's said that those will be campaign specific. So if you get a chronicle in Classic that allows you to create a new character and use Sin Magic, you wouldn't be able to make a Gluttony mage in Core. Same with Eyes of the Ten. Getting a that boon in Classic wouldn't let you apply it to a Core character. Its just trying to keep everything on the same side. (Also, I believe you have to have a copy of the chronicle for the new character and if they had allowed it you'd have a Classic and a Core sheet on the character and they're not wanting that for Core characters. Make sense?)
As for Holiday/Novel/GM Boons/Con boons, I'm pretty sure that Mike has said that those can go on either Classic or Core characters, unless it opens up a new race.
Now, I love making complex characters from a dozen sources like a lot of people, but I'm looking forward to remaking my 2nd/3.0/3.5 Elven Archer for Core, though I am a bit sad I won't be able to have durable adamantine ghost salted arrows... ;)

I was going to post this exact same thing but waited to see if someone else had posted it already. :) For years before there was an official item called journal I bought spellbooks and used them as journals. They're books of high quality paper, they don't have to contain spells. In fact I've seen a spellbook that actually contained nothing but notes on certain subjects in a PFS scenario.
I've got an account I'm willing to sell. PM me if anybody is interested.
I joined the kickstarter the first day so I have all the daily deals.
In a family PFS game my cousin and her husband used to use electronic dice. They started to miss actually rolling the dice and stopped using them.
I usually prefer players to use real dice and always bring several sets with me so players that forgot them or don't have them yet can borrow them. I hadn't considered having sets with oversized d20s... that's a nice idea. :D
Sadly I have yet to have a table of Library of the Lion go off without a fight. I almost did, but the group talked the person who was sure she had the correct placement into swapping one and they triggered the combat. If she had gone with her reasoning they would have been fightless. Almost had a death because of it too. :)
Overall I thought it was a great scenario. We did have one unfortunate death. A PC got critted by the raging, power-attacking greatclub wielding barbarian with his readied action. I thought it was kind of odd for a barbarian to ready an action while raging, but I guess there's nothing really against it.
So... one thing that confused me was I thought the idea of an "evergreen" scenario was that it could be run in the future during any season and it would fit in without connecting with any particular metaplot, yet the end note is all about this season's metaplot. I understand its replayable, but is that really all an evergreen scenario is going to be, just replayable? That note won't make any sense in a year or two when the sky key is already found. Unless of course we'll never find it all, which would also be disappointing.
All I can say is your VO must have way more time than I do, I sure wouldn't want to report everything that is played in my region. I guess it's the VO's choice, but the way it's usually meant to work is the organizer for each location/city reports their own games. This is the first I've heard of a VO wanting everyone to send reports to him so that he can do it himself.
As for the delegate, I believe the person who created the event or VCs can add reporters (since we can also edit events).
I thought for sure you were going to ask about taking a racial trait instead of a race trait. Thank you for not being one of those players. ;)
As for your actual question, its not clear. My gut says as long as you played him with the trait before Aug 15th, 2014 then you should be ok. But that may not be the official case. I don't remember if Mike has previously ruled about their race traits through adoption or not.
What Toshiro mentions is only for things from the ARG. That book treats races a bit more strict than other books. But since your trait is from Blood of Fiends, the ARG's rules don't apply.
Bill, what Jiggy mentions is pretty much how the ITS is supposed to work. Here's a post from Mike on it
The GM signs off on purchases when he signs the bottom of the Chronicle sheet, something he is already doing. He or the player adds one sentence in the Notes section. "items purchased -XXXX GP - See ITS #X."
I'd rule that if you're going to use a part of the reward then you'd have to have the whole reward applied first. So if you're planning on spending the PP that you just got on the chronicle, then you'd also need to apply the XP you gained as well. If that puts you into the next level than that's the level you'd use. Otherwise it wouldn't make sense to only use part of the reward before you use the rest.
From what I heard, the scenario was basically a word document that was printed out and handed to the GMs. Paizo doesn't like releasing unformatted documents like that to the public, and it'd be a waste of time/money in their eyes to properly format it for release. So a summary is pretty much all that we'll probably ever see. :/
I agree with Dragnmoon (gasp!) If you no longer have the class ability that gives you the gun, you'd lose the gun, that or it would count as being broken for you and irreparable since you don't have the gunsmithing class ability to make it work for you. That would mean one misfire and it'd be unusable.
I did like how the PFS playtest was handled for the most part. Unfortunately, I was able to only start one character during the playtest. I was a little disappointed we couldn't use GM credit for starting one. It was understandable since credit babies don't give feedback. I'm looking forward to playing my Kineticist more, but playing isn't usually that likely for me.
Kadasbrass pretty much nailed it. However, you had to play the character as a tiefling prior to August 15th or have GM credit on it and written that it was earmarked for a Tiefling.
As Kadasbrass mentioned, not only is reskinning something frowned upon, they've flat out said you can't reskin something into something else that already has stats. So no Tiefling that's really a human.
One of our stores offers a 20% discount on things bought the day you GM, but beyond that none of the stores in my area provide any incentives.
I've heard of a lot of stores that charge a small fee to use the space/table. Many also then give the GM a gift card or something.
One store in my area charges $2 per person and gives them 2 special playing cards. They give one to the GM to show that they've paid for the slot. After the game cards get turned back in and each one is $1 store credit. That gives $1/player to the GM as store credit and each game a player plays gives them $1 credit. When they do their spring Con it can really add up. It is probably my favorite "charge to play" business plan that I've seen in a store.
Yeah, I've got a level 7 lion shaman in one of my groups that regularly pounces with his rhino hide armor. On average it seems he does over 100 damage, though I think he just upped that with a pair of gloves. I have purposefully not mentioned mammoth hide to him. I had thought it was legal and didn't want him to find out about it. I'm glad it isn't. For him it isn't an extra 7 damage, its an extra 35 damage.
The only connection to slave pits is you visit the same region (misery row/Slave Pits of Absalom) and the guy has an almost identical company name "____'s Chattel - Absalom's Finest"
The connection to Dalsine Affair is the person doing the scrying, the one whose name you recover at the end semi-betrayed the Society by killing the Taldor faction head at the time.
I doubt your players will even know the connection. I had to explain who Muhlia was to mine, though they kind of remembered her from Dalsine Affair.

I had him act very curious about the stuff they were getting and had him ask to join them. Their "leader" didn't really care, so he came along. He fought the weed whip mostly by himself to prove to them that he could handle himself. He then waited until they faced a patrol of scrapwallers and he offered them a deal if they helped him defeat them. It worked out pretty well.
For those of you that made face cards or decided they should have made them, which characters (besides those pictured in the scenario) did you make/want to make?
I assume those pictured as well as the majordomo, solicitor, and slave. Any others? I'm prepping this for next weekend and trying to decide just how much work I want to do for something I might not use.
