I can see where people might powergame the hell out of some of these classes the way you all are saying, but as someone who is far too lazy to research good ways to munchkin a character, I enjoy the fun ways these can be played
The arcane bloodrager I played was fun, even if there was very little he could do just yet, but I'm really excited about the shaman, who's only weakness is the lack of repeat uses of hexes (I think taking additional hex as a feat at least once will be necessary) will increase the need for a non-spellcasting or special abilities in combat.
Also, I'm surprised everyone is writing off the brawler. It's a monk who loses ki abilities to have you choice of feats as you need them. Build them with a bunch of base feats, then become a grappler, spring-attacker, tripper, disarmer, sunderer... whatever you need, on the fly. I could see a lot of power in that build. Besides, you get cool monk stuff without worrying about Wis during your stat allocation.
ALSO, I have talked about this in the past with a few of you, but I've been making strides towards getting a chapter of the Pathfinder society in Sylva/Cullowhee/Western. I have at least 5-6 interested people, as well as just being introduced to a group that has a home-brew pathfinder game going that I was entirely unaware of.
Anywho, hope to hear from you all soon, and I hope the games have been going well. I miss you all, seriously
Guys, I got some really bad news.
Even worse, when my schedule finally DOES get a change for school time, it seems like there was no way for me to get off the graveyard shift without being stuck work noon-8PM on Saturdays.
Anywho... yea, my presence at the games will be greatly diminished, and no one is more upset about that than I am
I really need to update my info. Alchemist 5/Gunslinger 1.
Also, even though it was not me playing that lost the character, I have started to think of ways around this particular danger in the future, one that is more "Goon-esque" than feather fall. I'm thinking a grappling hook bullet with a rope attached? I can be Batman!
I'm sure that either Goon or Arvandor would be glad to handle WCU duties.
Indeed I would! In fact, I was thinking about trying to set up a small club here, or maybe see if the current WCU gaming club (depressingly titled "Whee Game") would let me set up a branch for table-top gamers
I admit I'm not good with photo-shop for graphic design type stuff, but I can certainly do some artwork for us, if someone else can transfer that work onto a flyer. That, or we could just steal some Paizo images <_<
BTW Goon: I have your mini, chronicle sheet and character sheet. PM me and we can work out a time and place to meet. I can come by WCU pretty much any time after 6pmish. Or I could scan and email your papers or just meet and give it to you on the 21st or whatever. Let me know.
Sometime in the next couple days would be great. I don't actually need the character sheet, but the rest would be nice, especially as I wont be able to make it on the 21st. I'll be home, so let me know whenever you're back from work and have a second
Question: Did Goon earn XP, gold, or anything on the chronicle sheet for Saturday's game, as he was apparently resurrected? If not, that's cool, but, if he did, I need to level up
Also... how exactly does the whole "raise dead" and negative level thing work? How much am I going to be spending on restoration spells and such?
So, a couple things:
and 4) It looks like I'm going to have to back out of the game on the 21st. It's looking like it going to be the busiest day at work I've seen yet, and they've scheduled me for 10 hours, starting 2 hours earlier than normal. I don't want to risk starting that 6-8 hour long module and having to leave before the last battle again, and I would show up for a regular noon game, but it would leave me without much sleep at all before that shift, which seems like an entirely bad idea. And so, I think I'll just be doing to responsible thing and skipping that one day entirely. If, however, we end up with any games thursday night, or any other night this week or next, I would be more than happy to jump in, or even work on running one
I, for one, would prefer part 2 at 5:30 on the 4th, unless they finally change my schedule. But, I'm just one voice. If the rest of the crew wants to start at 12:30, I can make sacrifices.
Also, with that schedule being the case, I guess I'll stay signed up for Diamond Gate, and hop in for Everflame on the 21st, if there's room
So, I went to the warhorn site, registered, clicked on the "subscribe to feed" button... and I'm getting a page full of HTML code...
I'm not computer literate enough to know what the hell that means O_o
*edit* Nevermind, got it.
I signed up for Diamond Gate, but I'm still willing to run an intro if needed
So, lack of official response leads me to believe this does not, in fact, work with firearms. Is there a place I can go to make a suggestion for future errata? I feel this would in no way unbalance the game, and would make a good bit of sense for intelligence characters that take the time to train with guns
If someone is working on throwing together that list of games for the coming weekend, put me down to run one of the intros, if we have enough new players. I'm going to use my days off to get all those PDFs as well as buy a few more, do a ton of research, and get some prep-work down. It's about time I start carrying my own GM weight around here
feasible, but more difficult, especially if you're using a musket. The point was, it is much EASIER to get multiple shots with the others.
As for the general rules, all I ever found there was "GM discretion", that's why I was wondering if there was any PFS-wide consensus about it, or if it had been discussed at all. Even if a couple of my local GMs allowed it, I wouldn't want to show up at a game somewhere else and be accused of cheating by another PFS GM down the road
I'm sure this question has been asked before, but after some fairly thorough searching, I was unable to find it:
I keep hearing "GM Discretion" when I ask folks, but I'd like to know if there is an official errata or comment from Paizo about this particular case.
My Alchemist/Gunslinger would really appreciate knowing ^_^

I'll be there! We'll see if we can gather any more folks as well
Speaking of mid-week games: I got Thursday off (My only day in an otherwise 12 day streak) and I'm looking for a good excuse to head into Asheville. If some folks have some time Thursday afternoon/evening, I would love to get a game together. I plan to buy some modules and some more GMing materials while I'm there, but I don't have anything to run just yet (havn't had time yet to do much reading on the GM process without some help)
Just sayin <_<
Aravandor, I would be more than willing to carpool if you'd want to meet somewhere right on the highway. I usually have enough time before work to make a quick stop at, say, a gas station or some such off one of the exits. I wouldn't mind driving my cozy, air-conditioned, fuel efficient little put-put car for us if that works for ya.
As for the GMing and the sign-ups, the biggest thing I've found for myself is that signing up for a specific table is hard for me, since I usually just want to help fill out the tables that are there. I'd rather just sign something saying "I'll be there as a player" or some such
Just as a thought- I know several folks, like Arvandor, Leej and Goon, come from far over the mountains. Have you guys considered carpooling?
Isn't really an option for me, since I have to run right from our games to work. Maybe after the summer, depending on how my work schedule changes
I am currently working on building up my materials to become a GM a little more frequently. Right now, MOST of my finances are being saved for a move I'm going to have to make at the end of July, but after that, I can work on collecting materials and modules and minis and such
Until then, I can become something of an official GM for Intro 1 and 2 for new players, if you all would like. Those are fairly easy for me to run, as I know them, and they're not terribly rules-intensive, and I'm always a fan of creating new characters (to apply GM credit to) as well as helping newer players with their own.
I'll try to get some PDFs and begin bringing my laptop to all the games from now on.
If I start doing this, though, would one of you veteran GMs mind sitting down with me before a session and going over how all the society reporting and crediting for sheets works and such? I admit I have not done a lot of reading on the subject, but I'd pick it up better by having someone go through the process with me.
Hey folks! Great time at free RPG day, and thank you for your patience, to those who were in the game I was running. I had a lot of fun doing so, and I'm going to start collecting some items and learning how it all functions (I hope) in order to be someone who can run in the future.
As for this weekend, with the 2 times for games... I would love to show up early so that I was not in a time crunch when it came to having to leave by a certain time... but I think I would be falling asleep at the table.
That being said, I don't think we've had a whole lot of problems finishing by the time I have to leave at night, unless we get unreasonably delayed
So, anywho, sign me up for this Saturday for one of the 5 PM games. If there's room at the sewer dragons table, I could always bring everyone's favorite boom-stick wielding halfling along. If that's full, I would happily play one of my other characters at another game as needed.
See you all on Saturday!
I don't have a truck, but I'm willing to help this friday at WT for a few hours if needed, as long as it's after 3-4 (need to sleep some time).
So, all things according to plan, we are meeting this saturday at WT, and then next Saturday for free RPG day?
Sorry I've been absent from the forums. Work has been... wow... painful. Trying to get used to this sleep schedule on top of the insane amount of physical demand that I am simply not used to (see: WAAAAY out of shape).
Anywho, welcome to all the new people I saw posting! Hopefully I'll get to play with all of ya soon. I'll try to be there on Saturday, even if I have to rush at 10 no matter where we are in game.
So, guys, I just got my schedule for work, and I'm fairly sure it's going to be semi-permanent. It has me working at "12 midnight" on Saturdays... which actually means being clocked in before 11:45.
Hey guys! Sorry I've been absent from the forum here. GeekOut was amazing, and I'd like to see what the event did to our numbers come next gaming session, heh.
