Andoran **** Venture-Lieutenant, Illinois—Chicago aka GTSamurai

There will be Pathfinder Society scenarios offered this year at WolfCon 9, November 30th and December 1st, at the Irish American Heritage Center, 4626 N. Knox Ave, Chicago, IL 60630.

Signups are extremely limited! If you aren't busy the weekend after Thanksgiving (and aren't attending StuffedCOWS), come on over to Chicago for a little PFS action!

I'm still looking for GMs for a table or two; email me at garrett@windycitypathfinder.com if you are interested in helping out. GMing one scenario will get you a free 1-day badge, 2 or more gets you the entire 3 days free at WolfCon.

I have a question regarding the abilities of the BBEG in the last encounter...

spoiler:
He's an ettin, and ettins come with Superior Two-Weapon Fighting. There doesn't seem to be any consensus regarding just how many attacks ettins are capable of in a round, taking the full-attack action. Here's a breakdown of the options for the 5-6 tier:

Option A: 2 mwk flails, +16/+16/+11
Option B: 2 mwk flails, +16/+16/+11/+11

I read that superior two-weapon fighting allows the ettin to essentially make a full-attack with each arm, thereby favoring option B. However, I would rather not get into an argument with my table tonight...

To top things off, the BBEG has both CLeave and Great Cleave. Cleave is a standard action...but if the ettin can make a full-attack with each arm, you've got:

Option A: Cleave at +16, additional attack at +16.
Option B: Cleave at +16 with one arm, Cleave at +16 with the other arm.

I'm really leaning towards option B...players in my neck of the woods tend to lean towards optimization, and even the season 4 scenarios haven't been posing too much of a challenge, and I like giving players a challenge. However, again, I would rather avoid an argument from whiny nerds.

Suggestions?

Viskous,

Howdy, I happen to run a Pathfinder program at the library where I am employed. I also happen to be a VL for the Chicagoland area, which makes running the program a heck of a lot easier.

My advice to you if you are just getting started would simply be to make it happen! If you are planning on GMing games, use whatever sign-up options you have available to you, target and invite some potential players, and dive right in.

If you want more info about my experience, please feel free to PM.
