Yes, this will be my third year going to Scotty's and have learned to show up early.

Thank you for the heads up, though. Glad you were able to play last year.

The event is organized by the Indy VO and not by Paizo directly as part of GenCon. Last year it consisted of a morning and afternoon slot.

Wasn't so much asking anyone working for Paizo, but for anyone, and maybe I just missed/haven't seen the announcement.

Thanks again.

I guess I could. I was just wondering if it was info that has been announced already and was something I missed. I know they are pretty busy, but if someone here knew, then I would rather do that first.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I noticed on Warhorn that the events and GMs are set for Scotty’s this year, is there any idea yet, or announcement made, on when sign-up will be?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The update is up.

Just went and got more of the dressing pieces. A little disappointed only 1 is allowed, but I understand the reasoning for it with how quickly they sell out, and that they are pieces that multiples usually make sense (i.e. crates, barrels, etc.)

I think it just shows further that making a ‘dressing pack’ would probably sell well.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I don't know the full impact of what will happen on WizKids end for their costs with the price of oil coming down.

But I am pretty certain if they 'do' see a reduction in costs on their side, we won't see it on our side. They will most likely keep prices status quo, especially considering from what I've heard in that the sets are selling well at their current price point.

Unfortunately, the "if it costs us more to produce, it costs you more to purchase" doesn't apply on the flip side for consumers. At least not usually for these kinds of products.

Capitalism at it's best.

But you never know, I could be proven wrong.

I’ve only opened up one brick yet of my first case, but part of that brick was the super booster (King Ivoretti and Feiya). The king looks great, but Feiya is leaning forward around 30-35 degrees. Is this normal for this mini?

And it’s not like she’s off the base, her feet are planted firmly and actually trying to bend her back doesn’t even work as her robe blocks doing that (there is no gap between robe and base).

My other issue is the Aristrocrat. He is painted just fine, but his cane is quite deformed. Both the top and bottom portions (either side of hand) are bent back. My experience is when something like that happens is I can bend it back, but it won’t stay.

So far for dressing pieces I’ve received a table, crate and small cart. All look very good.

I just received one of my cases today, haven't had a chance to crack it open yet.

Thanks for everything, Erik. I really mean it. I know a lot of us don't say that enough.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks for the reviews, Duncan.

You mentioned in your table review that we need more stools. And I agree, more stools would be nice. But for the tables we needs some chairs.

Hopefully we might get those for a future set.

I backed that one and he's just started shipping to KS backers this week. His last Update mentioned "moving forward to get these into retail"; I've asked how people who missed the KS can best track the progress on that, and will PM you if/when he replies.

Ok, that would be great. Thank you.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That's too bad the crate doesn't open. But even still, it looks like a great piece.

I hope we can get a dedicated (and larger) wagon down the road. With cover and everything, and able to put a handful of minis/supplies in it. I would consider the 'wagon' in this set more like a large cart.

I know there was a KS with an actual wagon awhile back from Tabletop Props, but I missed the KS, and there is no option to buy anything from his website.

I emailed him awhile back and never got a response.

But back to Rusty Dragon, it looks like a great set and excited about getting my minis. :)

I received my email notice from Paizo yesterday that it will be shipping out this week. At least one of my two cases will be. But both incentive items are part of this first shipment.

Right. Neither Paizo nor WizKids has used the term "very rare" or "super rare" in connection with these minis—if you see that, some fan came up with that tag, and it has no basis in the actual distribution method used by WizKids. Frankly, I feel that it's use is just plain misleading. You should see set dressing pieces in roughly the same proportion as rares in each case of minis, which is to say 1 or 2 of each per case. (They're not technically rares because they sometimes appear in uncommon slots, but they're not significantly more or less rare than rare.)

From the recent posts I’ve been reading on frequency of the dressing items, this is what I was getting the impression. And that is there is no higher rarity with the dressing pieces.

The numbers I’ve been seeing is actually very similar to what I saw with my dressing pieces in my Dungeons Deep cases.

If I get at least one of each, with the occasional two of a dressing item, in a case, I will be happy with that. Which is exactly what I received in Dungeons Deep.

Now we just need some chairs for those tables. :)

Thanks for clarifying, Vic.

Just received email notification yesterday that my Rusty Dragon Inn cases (well, at least one of the two) will be mailing out this week. Both case incentives are part of this first shipment, though.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Honestly, from what I am seeing, it doesn’t sound like the dressing pieces are at any higher rarity than the other rares. As there are other rares (besides the dressing pieces) that only have 1, and there are dressing pieces that have more than one.

To play a bit of devil's advocate, I can see why WizKids would not want to make a set of dungeon dressing. By keeping them limited to rares in current boxes, they are promoting the purchasing of boxes by people that are searching for dungeon dressing. It may make more business sense for them to keep the demand high under the current model than give us what we want :)

When companies begin thinking like that, it is when I start to look elsewhere. It’s one thing thinking “We are going to make the best (plastic) miniatures on the market so consumers will continue to purchase them”, it’s another to think “We are going to make the most desirable miniatures the most rare (hard to get a hold of) so they have to buy more boxes.” That reminds more along the lines of what Wizards did with DDM where you would need to buy multiple cases to complete a set.

It may be good business sense to do this, as there are those who will buy more, but I don’t consider it good practice. The sets for PB are doing well in sales already (at least when I spoke with Erik at Gen Con it was), let’s not try to sock it to those who are already supporting PB.

If WizKids doesn’t do a dedicated set for the more popular dungeon dressing, then I would like to see them an uncommon slot, or at least a normal ‘rare’ slot, instead of this ‘ultra rare/very rare’ slot I keep hearing about.

The Rusty Dragon Inn singles are selling out fast.

By now all 6 ultra rares/Dungeon Dressings are gone plus 6 additional rare minis.

6 rare minis remain available.

Also the "blue bed" repaint is still available in place of the sold out red one.

So to be clear, the dressing pieces are even on a higher rarity than the other rares? This “ultra/very rare”?

Why was that done? Do we really need that? I hope it doesn’t get like the old D&D miniature line where you will never get a full set in a case. Paizo/Wiz Kids have done a pretty good job of doing that so far, but if there is this “Ultra Rare” now, I can see that changing. I just don't see the need for it.

Erik, have yall thought about a dungeon dressing mini set along same lines of undead and goblin packs?

Yes.

WizKids did not sell enough of the goblin or undead sets to continue with this format, though I do think it's probably the most appropriate for a dungeon dressing set. It's something I will continue to discuss with them. I know we're all pleased with how well the dungeon dressing singles have been selling.

I also have to point out that fact that we quickly sold through the dungeon dressing singles from a bunch of cases we opened is far from definitive evidence that WizKids can successfully sell enough copies of a potential dungeon dressing set to make it worth their while. We're talking about a difference of multiple orders of magnitude here. Nonetheless, we'll make sure they're aware of the fact!

Yes, I understand that it is certainly not definitive evidence that a dedicated dungeon dressing set should be done, but it does begin to show the current method for singles (at least dressing pieces) right now doesn’t work as demand far exceeds the supply.

I know it’s been said you will open up more cases to resupply if it sells well enough (which it looks like a lot of the rares have), but I think stopping at the end of January will still be too early as many of us may not know what we have (haven’t received our cases or had the chance to open) or the demand will still be too high.

I know it’s a work in progress and something new you (Paizo) are starting, but I just don’t like the scarcity of these dressing singles, nevermind the access will be disappearing very soon on buying them (from your website).


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

"Very Rare"?

Are the dressing pieces produced at a higher rarity than other rares in the set?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Erik,

Do you mean same distribution for the dressing pieces as in rarity (i.e., all rares)? Please don’t make them all rares for the next set if they are items that people would want at least several of, similar to the table or crates in this set.

Why can’t the frequency be changed for the more wanted items? I just see the same problem with the next set as with this one, all the dressing pieces will sell out same day when they are put up and skyrocket in price.

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Have to say I'm pretty disappointed with the new procedure on singles, and considering the dressings are already sold out.

I know Erik indicated that it may be restocked, and that they are selling out this fast, gives more incentive on opening more cases to sell singles.

But all that means is I have to constantly watch the website to see if more singles open up which will probably sell out immediately again.

It's good for Paizo, but bad for us as we only have a limited time to get any extras, or forbid we don't get any of a rare in our case.

Please don't put this limitation on singles, continue to have them available for awhile, considering they are selling out fast.

I would also be open to seeing a dedicated dressing line.

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I usually get a couple of cases, so I'm normally good about the amount of minis I have, with maybe some of the rares.

My question is, when do cases begin shipping for subscribers in relation to the release date?

Shouldn't you keep the option to purchase singles up at least couple of weeks after the longest projected time a subscriber should receive their shipment?

What I think I will do if I don't have my cases yet is just buy the more rare miniatures that I will want multiples of, and maybe some of the uncommon ones. Like most of the dungeon dressings, and maybe the horses.

So what is normally the allotment for uncommons in a case now? Meaning, how many of one uncommon do we usually see in a case?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Can't say I agree with the restriction in this case, it's not like you are going to be incredibly powerful by stacking the boon with a book, considering the time taken to achieve the bonus (30 scenarios).

1bent1 wrote:


As to your question on allowing both books,of course PFS would not allow same bonus stacking, nor would they give out untyped ability score bonuses to a boon because then players would then buy cheap +1 books to avoid the GP cost of +2 books.

Please tell me where you play where 25,000 GP is 'cheap' for society play. :) Considering you will only probably gain in the area of 100,000 GP in the life of your character for PFS (unless you are able to take the retirement arc), to spend a total of 50,000 GP so you can raise your inherent bonus by +1 would be throwing money away. I don't know of anyone who would do as such.

But, apparently there were no rulings on the matter, which is unfortunate.

Thanks to those who responded.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Why was this moved to Rules Questions? My question wasn't dealing whether same bonuses stack, I know they normally do not, but I was asking if there was a ruling made in PFS that allowed a player to use the boon Research Specialist and Tome of Clear Thought together.

I can't see the powers that be (in PFS) would not allow a player to apply the +1 inherent bonus from the boon to a character if they decided to purchase a Tome of Clear Thought earlier in their character's career.

If they wouldn't allow it, then they should have changed the boon's bonus to an untyped one. Not sure why they didn't do so, already.

So as you can see, this is really a PFS question, not a rules question.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I did a search for this and didn't see anything on it. But my question is using the boon Research Specialist and magic item Tome of Clear Thought together.

With Research Specialist, if you complete it, you will gain a +1 Inherent Bonus to Intelligence. The Tome of Clear Thought also gives an inherent bonus to INT.

My question is, if you complete the boon and then buy a Tome of Clear Thought+1, will you be able to stack them even though they are the same bonus?

If you did it the the other way, I can't see the powers that be tell you no on the bonus of the boon just because you already purchased a +1 Tome, so I wasn't sure if you would be able to do so the other way (boon then Tome). Has there been a ruling on it at one point?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Oh, ok, that's good (on the wagon).

And nothing against Kor at all, I really appreciate his website and have used it a lot. I just wanted to clarify (hopefully) that at least the wagon was larger than medium sized (which it sounds like it is).


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Erik, what are the sizes of the cart and wagon? In looking at the Pathfinder Minis website (Kor's), I notice they are both listed as medium. That seems pretty small.

I could see the cart as a medium, but the wagon I think would need to be large, and on the 'large' side of large.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thanks for the great suggestions, Gohaken.

I don't know if I really want to replace any of my feats, but that Adopted trait looks really good, as does the Titanic armor. I also will be getting the gauntlets, as well. It was things like that I was talking about in looking for.

As for the traits I have now. Armor Expert, Giant-blooded and I can't remember the name now, but gives me +1 on Profession checks.

But I can certainly see myself swapping out Armor Expert for Adopted.

I definitely planned on getting myself a Belt of Giant Strength later on. Part of my anticipated +21 CMB is having a +2 belt (will of course go higher than that eventually).

I will probably be getting the Ioun stone (Thorny), as well. Thanks so much for all the great suggestions, Gohaken.

And yeah, I really like the Titan Fighter, looking forward in giving him a good go. :)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Well, I've actually already built him, he is for PFS. I have a pretty good focus on where I want to go with him, but mainly looking for suggestions on how to raise my CMB, whether through magic items or otherwise.

Shamus Xavier Zhorg

STR 18
DEX 14
CON 14
INT 10
WIS 12
CHA 8

A little backstory on him. He has the Giantslayer trait from the Giant Hunters Handbook (yes, I have the boon), so he is a larger than normal human. 6' 10", 365 lbs, flaming red hair and extremely large hands and wields a Large-sized Greatsword.

For how big he is, and how effective a fighter he will be, his first love, and eventual goal, is still retiring from the now necessary adventuring life and open up his own store. He is of course Exchange faction, and even took Skill Focus: Merchant, as one of my 1st level feats. Here is what my feats look like so far:

1st Skill Focus: Merchant
Weapon Focus: Greatsword
2nd Combat Reflexes
3rd Power Attack
4th Furious Focus
5th Improved Overrun
6th Vital Strike
7th Charge Through
8th Improved Critical: Greatsword
9th Greater Overrun
10th Greater Weapon Focus: Greatsword
11th Improved Vital Strike

What I envision my character in combat is very much like Juggernaut in X-Men. Due to the minuses I am taking with wielding a Large-sized greatsword and through my archetype, he is mainly going to be a first attack offense. Charge (overrun) and attack, attack once and move, and so on. There may be times I stay in one place for more iterative attacks, depending on the situation, but it will be the exception not the norm.

Yes, I know there are better overrun builds, especially in using a Barbarian, but this isn't focused solely on overrun as indicated in my other feats.

What my main question is what methods are there for me being able to raise my CMB, looking mainly through magic items? Right now I am looking at around +21 at 9th level (depending on which items I have), and I know that just isn't going to be enough, especially considering I need to beat their CMD by 5 to knock them prone. I am relatively set on my feats, unless I hear something that would be clearly better. But I do want to stay with the Vital Strike route, as well. Also, would you recommend a better order for the feats that I have? I had Weapon Specialization in there for the longest time, but just couldn't find the space to keep it in. I projected I will be doing in the area of close to +20 (at 9th level and with Power Attack), so I figured losing the +2 would be an acceptable loss.

Thanks for those taking the time to read and any suggestions would be much appreciated. :)

Scanned or .pdf copies are fine. You should write on it "Initially issued to [your PFS#]. Traded to [PFS #] on [Date Traded].

I must emphasize that not everyone is okay receiving photocopies/scans/printouts/what-have-you. Just because it's legal doesn't mean it's wanted.

I've been burned twice on shady-looking copies, and personally will never accept anything but a physical sheet from a Convention.

Please be honest and up front when stating what you have to trade. If it's a digital copy, you should include that fact when you're posting what you have for trade.

I was willing to go snail mail or digital, the digital was the offer from the other side (which again, I am ok with). When printing it out it is evident it is a scanned copy (as it has the white border with the darker/more shaded area of the boon sheet itself), but as long as I don't get told at the table that this is not legal, I am fine with how it looks. It is still very legible.

To me it looks like a legitimate copy (I don't know what shady ones look like), but the person I am doing the trade with is well known and respected here, so I certainly don't think that is an issue. :)

Btw, it was a pleasure to meet you at Scotty's, Nefreet. Even though you wouldn't trade me for that Giantslayer boon. :P

I get that the alternative ways such as encounter packs and separate huge add-ons didn't work. Hence why my question was referring to the old way things worked in the original DDM line. Though I could easily see Kalindlara's explanation beinf the reason.

Do we have any sort confirmation that War of the Dragon Queen, Against the Giants, and such huge sets in the old DDM didn't make enough money to justify their cost?

Well, I did say the reason was because the huge minis just didn't sell, which is one in the same in being 'unprofitable'. So yes, as Kalindlara had also indicated.

As for the old DDM lines, if you remember, the quality of the PPM went down as the line got further along. A lot of that having to do with the mounting cost, which has been said more than once (and by Erik) that PPM are more expensive, much more expensive now, to produce.

If you remember, a booster box of DDM was only $8.99, and that was for eight miniatures. Now, you get four minis with the price almost doubled. So yes, much more expensive.

If I remember correctly, with War of the Dragon Queen, a booster box being around $20 for one huge and 4 medium/small sized minis. For something like that now, it probably would be at least $35 for one booster box, and you'd probably only get the huge mini or one medium, if you are lucky. There would be very little people that would be willing to pay that kind of money. And almost no one willing to pay for a case of it.

Which is irksome specifically in the case of Shadow/Slick armor since those are clearly direct scaling enchants, but it is what it is I guess.

So those cannot be upgraded as they are 'named' armors? What would be the difference if you bought armor, paid the +3,750 to give it the Shadow ability, compared to if you bought the named Shadow armor? If there is no difference, why can't you upgrade the named Shadow armor as mechanically they are one in the same?


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I don't have any photos of them, but the two more promotional minis Erik was making reference to were released during the two main specials. One was a Fire Beetle and the other was a Duergar Soldier.

Both look very good, even the Duergar's face is painted quite well.

I can see both minis to be very popular as you normally are going to need a large amount (or at least group) of them, especially the Fire Beetle. I know I am going to find myself purchasing more from Paizo's website when they are put up.

Alex Smith 908 wrote:
What was the reason they couldn't include them with the normal packs at a slightly higher price point like Giants of Legend and Lords of Madness in the old D&D minis line?

What Erik indicated, it is pretty much what Kalindlara said, and that's the demand isn't there (sadly). The huges, whether through encounter packs or the additional huges added onto the set (like RotRL), just don't sell. Same with the horde sets (which Erik also said not to expect to see again).

What was nice to hear that Erik did confirm that the PFB line overall (the main sets) is doing extremely well. I will admit, I did wonder how well the line has done, but it appears to be going strong, which is a good thing. I just wish there was a realistic (profitable) way to consistently release huge minis, as well.

Edit: Oh, and the other thing I wanted to add is I did ask Erik about the somewhat consistent issue of humanoid faces not being painted as well. He nodded his head immediately (acknowledging) and seemed very frustrated about it, and said that they are going to try and move more of them to rare slots.

I asked him if rares had better attention paid to them, and he said yes. That is something I was not aware of, myself. But he indicated because they have more time to spend on them since there are less of them to paint.

I wish Huge wasn't such a tricky spot to get into a set. I would almost always take two readily usable miniatures (like Elementals, Aboleth, Froghemoth) over one awesome gargantuan miniature (which as awesome as they are, rarely see play except maybe once an AP.)

I spoke briefly with Erik at Gen Con in regards to the Huge issue and the news wasn't good. He re-confirmed we shouldn't expect any encounter packs or sets (like Rise of the Runelords) sold with Huges.

He did say, and what you are suggesting, is that the best case scenario in getting huges is replacing the Gagantuan promo on the sporadic set with two huges.

I am ok with that, myself, as there are so many great huges out there we haven't been able to see yet. The elementals being first and foremost.

Occultist has an indirect one.

It isn't a case of no longer being able to use it. It is a matter of there being significantly less ways to refill the Arcane Pool.

At the start everything looks alright. It is as you climb levels that things start falling apart.

Occultist 7 can use Summon Monster 4, using 4 points from their Arcane Spell Reserve. Assuming a 10 Charisma, their starting reserve for the day would be 3 + 7 = 10, but they only fill it to 3 + 7/2 = 6, missing 4 points when they start the day. At 7th level, their highest spell level is 3. Consuming one of their highest spell slots is not enough to fill the reserve. With the errata, they only get to do this a number of times equal to their Charisma Mod (min 1), so they need a 14 Charisma to be able to completely fill their reserve.

I really wish it had been something like 3 + Charisma Mod rather than Charisma Mod (min 1) since at least that way there would be a difference in this between an Arcanist with a 7 Charisma and a 12 Charisma.

Extra Reservoir might partially fix this if you interpret is as adding to both the maximum and the amount gained daily when spells are prepared.

Consume Magic Item used to be a way to fix this, but now it also can only be used a number of times equal to their Charisma Mod (min 1) which really hampers things.

I still have to digest exactly what this errata means for my character.

I just created an Arcanist myself. But have the archetype that allows me to specialize in a Wizards school. I believe I am ok with this change as my Charisma is relatively high (18).

So what did the boon state, exactly? That you could choose a Campaign trait from the Giant Slayer's Handbook?

And what was the name of the boon? Or was "Paizocon 2015 GM Boon" the actual name?

Edit: found a description on the boon. Thanks for the heads up!


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Shoot, was afraid of that. There is a campaign trait in the book that would have been perfect for my character.

:(

Thanks.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Are the Campaign traits in the Players Guide section of the Giant Slayer’s Handbook (pgs. 30-31) legal for play?

Under Additional Resources, it doesn’t address this section of the book at all. It does not say these traits are legal, but it doesn’t indicate they aren’t, either.

Although what was the reasoning behind no PFS after 5 p.m? I just wonder if Scotty's is tiring/not being as open as it has in the past in regards to the PFS events.

I am grateful to them in allowing us to play there, but I hope it's not now because they feel they need to, but that they want us there. I hope we haven't overstayed our welcome.

Ok, good. Because I really wanted to keep Aasimar.

Thank you.

I have a 1st level Oracle Aasimar. He is legal, I gained his first experience point before the race was banned last Gen Con.

My question is, I would like to rebuild him into an Arcanist. Since I am already an Aasimar legally, can I keep him Aasimar when rebuilding him into an Arcanist?

Fortunately broken minis have been very few and far between for me.
