Remember the page limit...1,000 pages runs out faster than you think!

And did you sell your old book? What price did you fogure it at?

one page per spell level, zeros are one page also and mine is at about 300 pages now...

My 12th lvl Magus who has a blessed book with ALL magus spells in it, is just over half full with 518 pages filled. Of course a wizard has access to a lot more spells and spell levels, but still.

Yeah, it's been around for a year or two. But note you can only apply them to 1st level characters. So once they hit 2nd you have to save them again or start a new character.

Not every build works in Organized Play. A completely blind character is one of them.

If you don't mind driving a few hours, we're going to be running them at a local con, Tavern Con, here in the Middle of Michigan at the end of August.

The description of the Specials for Thurs/Fri it mentioned all participants, so I'm hoping GMs get it too. I'd be surprised if we didn't get them.

When Indy Dave posted the minimate picture I thought it was just the same one I got last year from somewhere else. But I like that it glows in the dark. :D Another one to add to my collection.

B&W pregens will be provided. Personally, I printed out copies in color and on cardstock for my players' enjoyment.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

A couple of things:
1) Hardness/HP/Break DC are listed for doors and other objects on page 175 of the CRB

2) Energy damage to an object is halved before applying hardness. Since the locks is part of the door an acid flask would do absolutely nothing. The max damage (unless it was an alchemist) after halving it would be 3 and a door's hardness is 5.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Wei Ji, we aren't scheduled for either core or normal. At least I haven't heard of that distinction for the specials.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

What should have happened is he should have left it alone. You wouldn't be required to get the atonement until you actually gain the item at 7th level. When you play pregens you either save it for when you're the level of the pregen or apply it to a new character. In either case you wouldn't get the boons or free items like that one until you reach the level of the pregen and THEN you would need the atonement.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Last time I ran it they skipped the obvious trap and went to boss... then someone "had" to check it before they left. They've never let him forget it...

It was never changed, because it was never allowed. If anyone did allow it they weren't supposed to. The Folio has only ever been allowed a reroll if it was a physical bought one, not a pdf.

I'll have the scenario, print out of stat blocks and my CRB. I'll probably bring my tablet in case I forgot to print something, but it's not sure thing at this point.

1. When you use a "reroll item" (the character folio, certain T-shirts), you can add a bonus to the d20 roll equal to the number of GM stars you have.

In the email Chris sent out it mentioned these were not complete.

I've just noticed that the additional resources for Pathfinder Unchained doesn't list the limitations of rage powers/rogue talents or archetype restrictions that were mentioned in the blog. Those should probably be added since I doubt new players would search for the blog to see the limitations...

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

The trick doesn't say they're limited to, but PFS rules do. They're still limited to the rogue talents in PFU and the sidebar. If they had changed the name to rogue tricks, then there would be a loophole for them to take rogue talents from another source. But the Unchained Rogue in PFS specifically can only take Rogue Talents from PFU or those listed in the sidebar. No loop hole.

EDIT: Just realized that was mentioned in the blog, but Additional Resources doesn't list it. I'll see that it gets corrected.

Yeah, all you need to pick up your tickets at Will Call is a picture ID and your Gen Con email address.

The Emerald Spire download has a 2 page intro in how to use the chronicle sheets just like for APs and Modules. It's not an adventure in itself.

Both Thornkeep and Emerald Spire are modules that you can buy and download. They were rewards for the Kickstarters Goblinworks ran to get initial funding for Pathfinder Online.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Nope. If the Sagamore is closed by the time you get there, you can pick them up in the morning before first slot.

SO one Star knife at the minimum +1 and +1 for Ki Focus, is 4,000 gold.

NO. You add the +1s before you look at the table. So a +1 Ki focus star knife is a +2 weapon and would be 8000g (which is what a +2 weapon costs) plus the cost of the MW star knife.

Sorry... I had to laugh at this. I know it's not nice, but it is unrealistic. 2 of the specials are done already so you should have them if you're running them, the other two as has been said, will probably go out the weekend before.

Yeah, I've had a player with a 10** number that is a technophobe and has never registered his number. Once they're reserved, they're reserved.

My cousin's kids have both played PFS with us when I run at their house. She just make email addresses for them but didn't give them access until they were older and used those emails to register their numbers.

Well, if "hostage photos" were being considered, then taking one with the title page clearly and largely marked with the owner's name and PFS# would eliminate the "Barnes and Noble" effect.

Do you know how easy it would be to photoshop that? The answer is very.

It is cool that Linda is helping you out! Is she on loan for the convention season or will we hear more about her working on Society stuff in the future?

I thought she was hired as an assistant PFS developer.

EDIT: Just checked her intro blog post. I was wrong, just an assistant developer. Guess it was wishful thinking on my part?

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Yeah, what Jessex said. You are expected to own and be able to show either the book or a watermarked pdf or print out of said watermarked pdf when using anything outside the Core Rule Book.

The PRD is not allowed, and neither is d20pfsrd.

Also Charging Stag Style from Heroes of the Wild. It also allows you to charge through difficult terrain like Dragon style, but unlike dragon style it lets you make up to a 90 degree turn during the charge...

It has been my great honor and pleasure serving under your guidance Mike. I am so thankful for all you have done in growing PFS and supporting us Venture-Officers. I take a lot of pride in my position and if it wasn't for your hard work and dedication I wouldn't have taken the step to be a VO. Most players don't know how much time and sweat you've poured into making PFS the great organization that it is but I'm sure with the foundation you've built it will continue to thrive.

If you do wind up with an animal companion with only one trick, I would start with guard, and teach it come as soon as you can. Then work on the rest.

Guard will mean that it attacks anyone who attack the target of guard. Assign it to guard a frontliner, and it will get into combat pretty darn quick.

FLite, you're confusing Guard with Defend. Defend is protecting a person, Guard is protecting an area.

It is my honor to announce that Jim Tinklenberg has joined the ranks of 5-star GMs. For quite some time Jim has been one of my favorite GMs for Pathfinder Society, and I've tried to sit at his tables when he runs at some of the local cons and gamedays we both attend. Between his amazing use of voices that fit characters perfectly, his solid system mastery, his dedication of well over 1100 hours of running games (not counting his prep or driving time), and his willingness to travel across half the state in order to run a scenario he really likes, he is definitely deserving of being counted as one of the top GMs for PFS. His skill at GMing is one of the reasons he was at the top of my short list of GMs I wanted to run Eyes of the Ten for our local group.

Carrie wrote:
If anyone deserves recognition for awesomeness, and what better proof of awesome than a bunch of shiny stars, it is Jim Tinklenberg. It is clearly evident at Jim’s tables that he works very hard to have every player enjoy their experience and come back for more. His NPCs have life and voice of their own, whether they were given one in the written material or not, and change to fit the PCs at the table with a vast variety of boisterous accents and memorable characterization. Even the most mediocre scenario will come to life if Jim is the GM, it is always a pleasure to play at his table. Always organized, Jim can draw maps quickly on the fly, recite rules off the top of his head, make good rulings on unexpected player shenanigans, and he is humble to boot! Jim certainly has my vote for ALL THE STARS!
Matt wrote:
From the first time I played with Jim, I knew he was the type of person that I love having at the table. As a self-described "failed actor," he's constantly going the extra mile to bust out funny voices and make each NPC unique. Especially when it comes to roleplay-heavy adventures, there isn't a single GM I'd rather have behind the screen than Jim. He's one of those rare souls who seems to enjoy GMing just as much as he loves playing, and he's always driving hundreds of miles to run games for complete strangers. He spends a lot of time, energy, and money making sure that everyone has fun and he's been instrumental in building PFS in Michigan.

No, not that kind. I mean grab some scissors and paste. You can make those hardcover downloads fit on one page!

You know, I think this is a fantastic solution for those that don't want to buy pdfs, and don't want to carry around all their books. Cut out the pages they use from their hardcovers...

(Even I'm not sure if I'm joking or not...)

Most of the days they were as busy as described, but Sunday the several times I went by there wasn't a line. I picked up several impulse buys on Sunday.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Well, it helps that one of my best friends is the Vintner there and his family owns the place. :) Last year they gave us a good deal on renting their upper area, this year they gave us a great deal. Apparently the bunch of nerds last year gave them pretty good business. :)

Here in Mid-Michigan we've started a two day PFS con at a Winery/Brewery so players can drink and dice if they so choose. It is of course called Tavern Con.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Yeah, I ran a ton of Cyphermage Dilemma after it came out for whomever would let me run it. :) It was easily half of my required specials before my 4th star.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

The first special I ever played was I think 4 tables playing Year of the Shadow Lodge special. We had a high level cleric come to our table to restore ability damage or something that would have severely crippled one of the characters. There were also a few area buffs if I remember correctly. Its how I fell in love with the multitable specials. I know in that special it actually called out at some points that higher tables could directly help lower tables.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

There are some fights where grouping the enemies makes sense. A few weeks ago, I played a high level game where there were waves of 4-8 monsters and the GM rolled for each one. It took him longer to roll and put them in initiative than it did for us to kill them. We all would have been fine if he'd have just put them on the same initiative. That game ran 6 hours and using the separate initiatives was a part of why it took so long.

For smaller fights I'll occasionally roll individual initiatives, but when I do group them together, they each act separately. So I have goblin one take his entire turn, then goblin 2, then 3, etc. They should never all move then all attack from the new location since it doesn't work that way.

Those red minis you saw were most likely the demons they handed out at the Pathfinder Society special on Friday night. The only way you could get them was by playing that one slot, and NO ONE but Paizo employees knew they were coming. It was a surprise even to us VOs. So the woman didn't lie to you, there was only the one goblin promo that she could give you.

Hey Furry, I've done quite a bit with roll20 if you want to chat off boards about it. As for your questions:

I believe you have to subscribe to be able to save characters. Most PFS games online don't require sheets because it does take a while to input everything.

What I and a lot of those I've played with have done is save our macros that we use for a specific character in notepad or something and then copy/paste when we play that character.

With roll20, webcams are off, at least all the games I've played. A mic is good, a headset is better. If you're just using your computer's speakers and a mic you can pick up feedback or echoes depending on room configuration.

Some GMs have you send a copy of your character sheet so that they can see it, though not all.

Shadow Lodge ***** RPG Venture-Captain, Michigan—Alma

Yeah, Pathfinders can be evil. PCs in PFS can't be evil.

I for one am thrilled that they finally released Mike's class... I've been wondering for quite some time. ;)
