The way I've been playing it is the only place I saw "step" was the turns/exploration "step". So if he uses say cure at the start of an exploration then he has Arcane/Divine while exploring so he can gain cards/items/allies that require those skills.

Hmm... I'm not sure. You should email Xath (William Jones) about it. He's organizing PFS for the con.

Mike is currently on vacation. It takes him a while to go through those reports. Just give him time and it'll be taken care of. Your paper chronicles are the official records anyway. The online system is just backup/for paizo records.

Are you looking at sleeves or protectors?

Yeah I agree with Raumac. the card she buried in place of the pistol counts as the pistol for the rest of its ability.

Congrats man! Welcome to the island. Sorry, we haven't started a 5-star rugby team yet...

Hey, who turned out the lights?

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

Well, considering there are several boons that grant free gear or money that would be way too powerful for a 1st level character, I see it as necessary.

I was putting the S&S demo decks together as you posted them, but I only have 5 blessings of Erastil and what you have lists 6. 3 for players, 3 for the randoms...

EDIT: Just checked my other set, and it only has 5 as well...

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

Well, in one scenario the PCs are ritually inducted into a clan. If the summoner was from one of the tribes I don't see why the eidolon couldn't have been inducted as well.

Shadow Lodge

Yeah, that's what I did. I have PDFs of the Bestiary pawns and used a page of them as a guide to make my own. Its really nice actually having a pawn for the exact thing.

You can use hex grids on roll20.net. It would also let you upload the stolen lands maps and just erase the fog of war as they explore. You can draw free hand, point-to-point lines, text, or rectangles/circles.

Walking underwater is not in the rules sadly. But if it were to be, it would be treated as if swimming and being difficult terrain.

Umm... nope.

Condition Movement Off Balance?

Firm footing4 half No

4 Creatures have firm footing when walking along the bottom, braced against a ship’s hull, or the like. A creature can only walk along the bottom if it wears or carries enough gear to weigh itself down: at least 16 pounds for Medium creatures, twice that for each size category larger than Medium, and half that for each size category smaller than Medium.

No where does it mention difficult terrain, and even then you're still moving at half speed, so even with DT you'd be moving a min of 5' a round.

I'm not even going to touch the rest of your assumptions.

As for the waterbreathing they get, where are you getting only 1 hour, Oliver? Do you have a huge party or something? Kyte is a 6th lvl caster, WB is 2 hr/lvl and he extends it for 24 hours per casting.

I'm kind of confused as to why they even included the free waterbreathing in the adventure. The tunnel in is only 45' long. Holding your breath and swimming would only take 5 rounds for even a slow creature. If they can't make a DC 10 swim check they only have to carry some gear to weigh them down and they can walk on the bottom.

Read Reign of Stars for some really good evil ideas... It is quite eye-opening...

Your player is correct. Grab by itself does not damage it just gives a free attempt to grapple if you hit with the attack that has grab. You're confusing grab with constrict.

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

We're a little over six weeks away from Tavern Con! We've got 30+ people signed up as GMs/Players and just a little over 1/3 of our seats are filled. Half of our tables are currently legal according to the sign-ups, but most are the minimum so we've still got lots of seats to fill!

If you've registered but haven't signed up for your games, please sign-up. If you've been thinking about going but haven't registered yet, what are you waiting for?

If you see a scenario that doesn't have any players signed up for it, and you have a suggestion for a different scenario, please let us know. We'd be happy to see about making a change if you're looking for a specific scenario.

We're looking forward to making this an awesome time, so help us help you.

Cheers!

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

Did you put your info on the paper as well?

Shadow Lodge

Yep, only core races have favored class bonuses for the new classes. I'd probably expect them to give the other races some in Inner Sea Races, that or Advanced Class Origins might have some of the campaign race FC bonuses in it. But nothing currently is out that has them in it.

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

Clone means it copies all the information but makes it a new event.

I started using different events for each game day, but I kept forgetting the number. I eventually picked an event for each place I run (one with a memorable number) and use that whenever anything is run there.

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

I'm with those that see the rerolls working exactly as they should. More often than not it seems when players use their reroll they roll worse than the original roll. Most tables I've run for when they pull off a good reroll when it is an important save or to hit the bad guy the table cheers. PFS is about having a good time right?

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

AA's biggest benefit is its versatility. My alchemists have a bunch of potions and AA lets me basically spontaneous cast those spells and use spells that aren't on his list. Most of my Alchemist have all their 2nd level slots filled with AA because of that. There are also many scenarios, especially newer ones, that have higher level potions on them.

I know of one that has a 15th lvl caster stoneskin potion on it. I won't tell which one, and it probably won't do you much good by the time you can get it. My friend happened to be able to play that module back when you could make an appropriately leveled copy of a character to play in it and apply it to the lower level character. So his low level Alchemist is very careful with his stoneskin potion and usually drinks it with AA at the start of every scenario.

There are also alchemist discoveries that let you be affected by a potion as if it were made at your level. That would allow you the higher bonuses than minimum as well.

Every time you use AA to drink a potion/elixir is more gold that you're not having to shell out to replace a potion.

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

The online system is only backup. As long as your character sheet is correct, the Paizo system is moot.

Paizo IT has several things on their plate and I'm sure they'll get to it "soon"

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

IT has a long list of things that need doing (including adding the new factions). Since Emerald Spire was just sanctioned last week, expect it to take a little while before they're able to add it to the system.

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

The official ACG pregens have not been released as a download yet. They were finished just before Gen Con and Mike and company have been quite busy since with DragonCon and Pax Prime and vacation.

The 4 Pregens in Risen from the Sands are only legal for that module. They are not legal to use in any other PFS scenario.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Yeah, as Xar'z mentions, if you can find one on a chronicle sheet (say a caster level 15 potion of stoneskin...) then you can use it.

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

Congrats both of you and welcome to the team!

So the unofficial official announcement .... PurpleBunnyCon in Feb .. .who's in? lol

Hey, purple/green are one of my fav combinations. Or you could always just wear the purple volunteer shirts. Now the orange/purple... ugh, horrible! Just horrible...

I would like to be the first to congratulate our own Purple Fluffy CatBunnyGnome, or henceforth, Thea Peters, in becoming Venture Lieutenant for Murfreesboro, TN. I know this announcement will please those of us who, like myself, found her presence to be an intelligent and moderating presence on the boards. I know that she will do just as much for the Tennessee community as she has for the PFS community at large.

Thanks,

Yeah, we wondered the same thing and ruled it maxed at normal hand size, but I would like to hear the official ruling.

Doh, yeah... I wasn't thinking, I didn't scroll down. That's what I get for posting before caffine. :)

Ryric, you should have leather armor and a wooden shield in your wizard class deck. Both are armors.

Hey, at least you got the two promos you did, I didn't even get them when I picked up my subscription.

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

Thanks for running Bonekeep Alex. I would have if we didn't find any other players, but I also know some of your 4-stars need to run your specials/exclusives so I was waiting. :)

There will be non-alcoholic beverages available as well, so no they don't have to be 21.

Your "creative solutions", David, are WAY beyond what is allowable for GMs to do in PFS. If you're running it in a homebrew game, fine, but its not ok in PFS.

So they don't know some things about a couple of creatures, so what? They'll figure things out by trail and error just like we used to before having Knowledge checks. I just played in 6-01 and none of us even had K:Engineering, so we had to do it the old fashioned way anyway. Smart PCs/players will figure things out even without the free pass that they get had they had the knowledge for it.

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

Its a type of silent auction, not a sale. Around here we have a similar but different type of silent auction. You buy tickets and then choose how many tickets to put towards each item. Unlike the scenario, in our method the winning ticket is then drawn randomly. So someone could have bid essentially $20 and the winner could have only put in $1 worth of tickets and still win.

Now, I have heard of auctions like the one described in the scenario, but not often, and usually for those than can afford to lose the money if they don't win.

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

The real question is, do you have a race boon for a new character, or have you already played said character. If not the question is moot since tieflings are no longer available to start playing without a boon.

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

Yeah, I have all but my Stonelord credit as well. Just give it a week and then ask if it still isn't updated yet.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Yeah, and the player has no idea (as of Sunday afternoon) just what he's doing with it. He's played at my table many times and I can't wait to run a game for his android. :)

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

Also realize that GenCon just got over. Its quite possible that the GM went to the con. I know I was without internet for pretty much six days, or without email at least.

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

Well, I'll be leaving here in about an hour. I'll see you guys around noon. :)

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

There's a pdf reader program called Nitro Reader, its a free download. It has an option of extracting all images from a pdf. It does a really nice job. gives them a white background, not that messy black one you usually get from copy/paste out of Acrobat.

I've used Parkwhiz.com for parking the last two years. Last year I did a month or so before GC so got a parking lot about 8 or so blocks away from the hotel. From Wed to Monday it was I think $70, but it was park and stay, no in-and-out. This year I'm about four blocks from the hotel in a covered garage from 6am Wed until 6pm Monday $55. Of course I got my parking in January... But for six days I'm paying what a lot of people are paying for 2 days or so. Plus its like half a block from Scotty's. :)
