Kevin Mack, re your question on Facebook about the Future of Paizo seminar, looks like Enlight Bystand is live-Tweeting it.

Fwiw, I haven't seen any real breaking news yet. Maybe the Faction Pins announcement? And here's something about an update to Pathfinder Adventures.

The big news will break at the banquet, and I imagine the blog update Chris promised will cover new product announcements from that.

What Duiker said. I don't use Twitter either, and I only have a Facebook account because they post photos that way when my kids go to sleepaway camp. But you can read the PaizoCon updates without "following" or "liking."

Quote:

Helpless: A helpless character is paralyzed, held, bound, sleeping, unconscious, or otherwise completely at an opponent's mercy. A helpless target is treated as having a Dexterity of 0 (–5 modifier). Melee attacks against a helpless target get a +4 bonus (equivalent to attacking a prone target). Ranged attacks get no special bonus against helpless targets. Rogues can sneak attack helpless targets.

As a full-round action, an enemy can use a melee weapon to deliver a coup de grace to a helpless foe. An enemy can also use a bow or crossbow, provided he is adjacent to the target. The attacker automatically hits and scores a critical hit. (A rogue also gets his sneak attack damage bonus against a helpless foe when delivering a coup de grace.) If the defender survives, he must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + damage dealt) or die. Delivering a coup de grace provokes attacks of opportunity.

Creatures that are immune to critical hits do not take critical damage, nor do they need to make Fortitude saves to avoid being killed by a coup de grace.

Quote:
Pinned: A pinned creature is tightly bound and can take few actions. A pinned creature cannot move and is denied its Dexterity bonus. A pinned character also takes an additional –4 penalty to his Armor Class. A pinned creature is limited in the actions that it can take. A pinned creature can always attempt to free itself, usually through a combat maneuver check or Escape Artist check. A pinned creature can take verbal and mental actions, but cannot cast any spells that require a somatic or material component. A pinned character who attempts to cast a spell or use a spell-like ability must make a concentration check (DC 10 + grappler's CMB + spell level) or lose the spell. Pinned is a more severe version of grappled, and their effects do not stack.

What's the difference between a bound character who is Helpless and a bound character who is Pinned? Is a character whose hands are tied less bound (Pinned) than one who is tied to an altar or stake (Helpless)? Are there degrees of being bound which culminate in the Helpless condition where a character can no longer make an Escape Artist check?

I haven't had any problems extracting maps from PDFs. I'm running Giantslayer online and have pulled images out for use in MapTool. Of course, I do it myself manually; perhaps it's Staples that's changed their software?

Bob, one thing I do at the table is pull the pictures of monsters and NPCs out of the PDFS and display them on a monitor. I have a group of players that's been around since AD&D and are pretty blase about monsters. If I say, "You see a wight," they shrug; if I say, "You see this" and put up one of Paizo's pictures (of a wight), they're like, "What the heck is that thing!? It looks scary!"

Of course, if they make the Knowledge roll, they can identify what they're fighting, but I find they react more viscerally to a picture than to a physical description of a monster.

My family loves The Flash, but last night's episode was a big disappointment, especially after so much time off.

Spoiler:
Team Star Labs seemed remarkably unintelligent, and as dumb as their plan was, it might actually have worked if they'd added the step "put booted Zoom in containment cell" before "Barry gloats unattractively." He got them monologuing!

And is it just me, or is "depower the only guy who may be able to stop the monster" not an acceptable way to get Wally back? Who's to stop Zoom from killing Wally and a bunch of other innocent people once he has Barry's speed? I was really hoping for a Superman II-style trick where the team stole Zoom's speed for Flash rather than the other way around.

Going forward, haven't we already had a couple of episodes of "Barry's lost his speed and doesn't know how to cope?" Do we really have to see Depressed!Barry again? He's not much fun. That goes double for Mopey!Caitlin, who really needs to be given something to do other than be abused romantically and taken hostage.

I really hope they can turn this around before the season finale. I don't want The Flash to go the way of Legends of Tomorrow, which I quit watching in disgust at how incompetent the heroes are.

I don't think AP-specific GM Guides are a terrible idea, but three things:

1) The Philosophical Objection: I actually think that sorting through the community-created content is better. Yeah, it takes longer, but you have more options. Some of them you'll love, and some of them you'll hate ... but the ones you hate, someone else will love, and vice-versa.

2) The Practical Objection: Paizo is producing all the content they can with the staff they have in the time they have available. It's not like they're kicking around at the end of the month, playing solitaire and checking Facebook, wondering if there's something else they could be doing with their time. Heck, their schedule slips a month behind at least once every year in one of the product lines. Producing a new book twice a year would require hiring new employees or cutting current production.

3) The Capitalist Objection: Paizo's business is kept afloat by subscriptions, people buying new product every month when it is first released. They want everything they're doing to be pushing their new APs, not harkening back to old products, because they want to attract new subscribers more than they want to empty their warehouse. People buying old stuff they still have around is great ... but not as great as people committing to buying the stuff that's going to be coming out every month.

For more "epic" level type heroes could a combo of vigilantes and Mythic rules work?

James Jacobs says sure.

That's the way I'm leaning for my vague work-in-progress Golarion Justice League campaign. Vigilante for the double-life, Mythic for the superpowers. Plus, on topic for the thread, if the PCs share the same mythic ascension event, it helps them know each other/work together.

There are a lot of PFS games going on by PbP on the Paizo forums right now. I believe there's a Venture-Officer specifically for online gaming, and they've set up several PbP game days.

EDIT: I believe you can get to either local or online game info from this page.

The original Campaign Setting gave phonetic pronunciations, which were preserved in the wiki; you are correct about the pronunciation.

@Hayato Ken: In English phonetics, a vowel followed by a single consonant is usually long, though there are plenty of exceptions (i.e., "arena").

I have to say, if you think Master of the Fallen Fortress is dull, don't run it. You won't have any fun if you aren't at least a little charmed by the subject matter.

I'd go with a dungeon for your first time out. There's usually only one way through so you can prep knowing basically what the party will do without having to suddenly make something up or start flipping pages wildly because they decided to go a direction you didn't expect.

If your players are experienced, Crypt of the Everflame is a fun module, if a little difficult for newbies. Also, the first level of Thornkeep is an enjoyable dungeon that doesn't run on too long. The Godsmouth Heresy is a lot of fun, but the dungeon is less linear.

Being PDF only saves time and money on printing, but from the point of view of Paizo staff takes the same amount of time and effort to write and lay out as any other product. Basically, they'd either have to turn out an extra book on top of their normal yearly schedule or cut a product from an existing line to make room for such a book.

Personally, I'd certainly buy such a book, either PDF or print, but its audience would be only-GMs not both-GMs-and-players like books with extra mechanical options or world flavor. As such, it would almost certainly sell fewer copies than the typical Paizo product.

Do you think Mythic tiers would work well with the Vigilante class for superhero origin stories that are the fantasy equivalent of "bitten by a radioactive spider" or "particle accelerator explosion?"

I've bought a case each of eight of the sets and have never been missing a mini. They only don't guarantee a full set due to the possibility of human collation error. (This has happened. Someone got a set with duplicate bricks in it a few sets ago and missed out on two or three of the rare minis.) But it's very unusual for there not to be a complete set in a case.

Paizo Subscriptions:

Adventure Path: For GMs, this is Paizo's flagship product. One book is released per month, which make up two full campaigns per year. They all begin with 1st-level PCs and wind up somewhere between 12th and 20th level in their final installments.

Modules: Also for GMs, there are fourish a year (if there's any product slippage, it seems like it's always the Module line that gets pushed back). These are shorter campaigns or groups of themed stand-alone adventures. They start and end at various levels.

Campaign Setting: Leaning toward GMs. Flavor and background about the world of Golarion, with some mechanics mixed in. Monthlyish. Used to be called Pathfinder Chronicles.

Player Companion: Geared toward players. Flavor and mechanical options for PCs in Golarion. Also monthlyish. Used to be called Pathfinder Companion.

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Hardbacks with mostly world-neutral mechanics and options. Three to four releases per year.

Pathfinder Tales: Novels set in the world of Golarion. Published by Tor. Releases every other month.

Pathfinder Comics: Comics set in the world of Golarion, starring the "iconics." A licensed product published by Dynamite.

Pawns: Heavy cardboard punch-outs with stands, used in place of (or in tandem with) plastic or metal miniatures when playing the game.

Pathfinder Battles: Prepainted plastic miniatures. A licensed product made by WizKids

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Card game. Don't know much about it. Class deck subscription also available.

Pathfinder Legends: Audio dramas based on the Adventure Paths and starring the iconics. Also available in digital format.

Pathfinder Cards: Things like item cards, NPC cards, cards for use with chase rules, optional hero-point-style cards.

Pathfinder Maps: Laminated flip maps and packs of connectable map cards.

As far as things being "canonical," except for specified exceptions (i.e., Shattered Star assumes that Rise of the Runelords, Curse of the Crimson Throne, and Second Darkness have occurred in the campaign world), Paizo doesn't advance their timeline in order to keep the products relevant. The assumption is that the events of the APs happen in your world in whichever order your group plays them in. Note that this means that there are very few "world-altering" events in the adventures.

Your campaign is showing for me, although without the characters' names listed in bold. Are you sure you haven't hidden the Gameplay thread in the Play-by-Post forum by hitting the ∅ button? Easy to do, especially on a phone or tablet, when you're aiming for the latest post.

If the Gameplay thread has been hidden, you'll have to opt to display hidden threads by hitting Show ∅ in the Play-by-Post forum and unhide it manually.

Yeah, most things should be compatible, with the exception of the obvious things like Spot and Search skills and the like. It's just a question of whether your GM will allow outside material.

It's worth noting that, while a 1 on an attack roll is always a miss, a 1 on a skill check can still succeed if the bonus is high enough to meet the DC. There aren't auto-fails or -successes in skills.

I gotta agree with the OP. A lot of the messageboards may as well be a wasteland. It takes a lot of scrolling (to the point it's easy to overlook things) to get to different topic areas. It's especially noticeable as ugly and flawed when you have to trudge through all the old playtest headers.

Why don't you just close the playtest forums? All you can see on my forum view is a single line that says Ultimate Intrigue Playtest; the rest of them, wherever they are, aren't even visible.

GitP is the kind of forum I can't stand, where you can't see anything without clicking into each separate forum and back out, over and over again. I like everything being accessible at a glance ... except for the stuff I choose to close.

Look at all the stuff I'm either not interested in or avoiding spoilers for! Really cuts down on the scrolling .... as does Focus view.

...

It's organized around the different product lines, each of which is a little different and don't necessarily mix together.
"Role Playing game" is for straight-up rulebooks, intended for players and GMs, that contain minimal setting fluff. They're hardcovers and get ~3 books/year.
"Campaign Setting" is the opposite. They're specific to some facet of the setting, don't contain as much rule information, and are GM-centric. They're 64-page softcovers (usually) and get ~10 books/year.
"Companions" are player-focused, fluffy, 32-page softcovers. They contain a mix of targeted setting background and player options. They get about 1 book/month.
"Modules" are 96-page, self-contained adventures. They're softcovers and get ~4 books/year.
"Adventure paths" are 96-pages, softcover, and released monthly. 6 volumes to an AP; 2 APs/year.
Putting all the non-AP material in a single place would lead to some confusion as to what products are generic-ish...

What you have defined here is the difficulty of the problem needing solving, not a reason why these cannot be meaningfully combined. I do like this particular division, but there could be many other choices that work, and certainly some that are better for different things.

Designating something as officially tied to something else is not even tricksome. The trick is doing it efficiently.
Standard flags could make it abundantly clear what fits with what.

I think the main reason those categories are set up the way they are is because Paizo's bread-and-butter is its subscriptions. Letting people know what they get when they sign up for a particular subscription is key.

For instance, if you subscribe to the Pathfinder Companion line, you'll get everything listed under Pathfinder Companion and nothing under Pathfinder Campaign Setting, even though the products are often thematically related. I know there always used to be some confusion about whether the Adventure Path line included the Adventure Path map folios, which are in the Campaign Setting line.

TL;DR: Paizo's web store was really designed to sell subscriptions, not one-off purchases.

When a player makes a great speech and then botches the Diplomacy roll, I generally say that unfortunately, something about them reminds the NPC of an ex or a brother-in-law who's always borrowing money or the guy who beat them out for the promotion: no matter what they say or how reasonable their argument is, the NPC is just biased against them from the get-go through no fault of their own.

Also, it can be really tedious clicking all those little triangles one by one. Maybe a checklist where you can select which forums to close, rather than making you do each one manually?

I don't know. ICv2Pro was set to launch since the last set of publicized rankings.

Sounds like the Chrome issue. Try copy/pasting the link of the timed-out page into a back-up browser. (Firefox and IE, of all things, have shown particular success.)

As I understand it, your PDF has personalized, but the browser is giving up on the process before a secure link is established. I had the same thing happen in Chrome but successfully got the download with two tries in IE.
