Hey Drokk:

Per the Combat section of PRD/CRB:
"You can't execute an attack of opportunity against an opponent with total concealment, even if you know what square or squares the opponent occupies."

No AoO means no Bodyguard, i.e. Nigel can't help AC when blinded/eyes closed/v invisible foe.

Not that it mattered this past round, but FYI.

You're right. Nigel's never tried "blind ninja bodyguard" before, but I know being invisible means you don't provoke AoOs from opponents that can't pinpoint you. I just didn't link that up with Bodyguard. Thanks for pointing that out.

No worries. Got a helpful halfling that likes to use Bodyguard feat for pals... when he's not Glitterdusted!

Hey Brock:

Until you play a PFS character for the first time at level 2 (or higher, which can happen with GM credits), you can completely change your character (between scenarios only) as much as you'd like, changing class, race, feats, whatever. Once you play at lvl 2+ the first time, that's the character (for that character number--you can create multiple characters of course, each with format YOURPFS#-Char#)

To have anything out of the ordinary, in terms of race, class, feats, etc, you need to own the appropriate sourcebook, and it must be PFS legal.
go to this page
Pathfinder Society
Read the Roleplaying Guild Guide, and check out Additional Resources and Campaign Clarifications links for more complicated rules questions about how they work in PFS. PFS games are supposed to be Rules As Written (RAW), so no homebrew, 3rd party, etc. (Additional Resources is the main one to tell you what's PFS legal.) The Roleplaying Guild Guide is the one that really lays out the basics of all this.

Chronicles are basically your record of having played the adventure. It will list how much XP (experience), gold and Prestige you earned for the scenario. XP is straightforward: 3 XP gets you a level. Most scenarios grant 1XP, some modules grant 3XP (and you can choose to advance in SLOW track,basically half the XP, gold & prestige, but I wouldn't worry about that until you have lots of characters). Gold is what you can spend on your equipment. But there are limits to how much gold you can spend depending upon your Fame (which is the total amount of Prestige you've earned overall). Until you have 5 Fame, you cannot buy any one item worth more than 500gp, and it scales up from there (RGG has the table). (Except there are certain things that are "always available," which is basic equipment, most special materials, and +1 weapons and armor, a few other things). While earned Prestige points add up to your total Fame, they also can be spent for other stuff--e.g. having the Pathfinder Society Raise Dead and other spellcasting services. Most important of all, 2 prestige points can get you a piece of equipment worth up to 750gp--which means you can get a wand of a level 1 spell. Most character's first purchase once they have 2 prestige (standard award for a successful mission) is either a wand of Cure Light Wounds or Infernal Healing.

Starting Gold is set at 150gp. Starting HP is max for first level of your class (plus Con Mod, Toughness if you have it, and possibly Favored Class Bonus). The Roleplaying Guild Guide should fill you in (and it's a free pdf download.)


Sorry for the lag in response, but Leppin is correct. That being said, this table is full, so I'm afraid you'll need to look elsewhere for your first game.

In terms of playing a new PFS (Pathfinder Society) character, you're welcome to create any kind of PFS legal 1st level character you wish. (There are a couple of specific beginner quest/scenarios that require pregens, but most don't.)

(Also, FYI: discussion thread for a game isn't really the place for this. I suggest you check out other areas of the discussion boards for rules, PFS info, etc.)


Gameplay thread is open for dotting (though we've plenty of time before the start date...)

grimdog73: I'm willing to add you as 7th PC, since you were the first to respond and it was my faulty link-fu that led to confusion on your part (who knows, come Oct 1, we'll see if we still have 7).

Post here from the alias that you want to run in the scenario (and mention 'grimdog73' in the post).

Table 74 is full.


Table is full. Anyone signing up after this is waitlisted.
Be sure to check back in around Oct 1 or so.
