Pathfinder Adventure Path subscribers also receive the Pathfinder Advantage: 15% off of suggested retail price of all products on paizo.com, with the exception of non-Paizo downloadable files.

Pathfinder Advantage is the name of the discount you get with the AP subscription.

That is correct, and it's a freaking nightmare to draw: not only all the irregular angles but trying to make one square into four. I frankly went mapless for the water tunnels after repeatedly trying to draw out the first room and messing it up.

Snake stoically watches the scene between Gristav and the cat unfold - doing his best to not vomit. Simply shaking his head at the stupidness of it all, he says nothing as he makes his way upstairs.

...with the weasel he talks to on his shoulder. Glass houses, and all. ;)

Merry Christmas, all! I'll be around, albeit busy, but no pressure to keep the game moving forward for a few days. Enjoy the holiday season!

I am attempting to subscribe to the PF Battles Case subscription, beginning with Lost Coast and the promo miniature, but do not see a way to add this discount code. How would I go about adding it to my order before I am charged? Thanks.

The fine print is still missing from the blog, along with the code.

You can make a separate gameplay thread with a new title for chapter two and attach it to the same discussion thread, if you want to. I've seen some people do that who are running APs, to mark the transitions between the modules. Unless it's really bugging you, though, it's probably not worth the hassle.


Sorry, guys; the holidays are getting to me. I was up until after 1 wrapping presents last night, and I've run out of time again today. What are Gristav's next intentions? Going upstairs and, if so, with the cat or without it? Or taking the cat to Samaritha in her room? Let me know and I'll get at least some of us moved forward to breakfast tomorrow after lunch. (That's fictional-breakfast-in-game and actual-lunchtime-in-real-life. :P) Javell, are you with us and ready to move on to the daily breakfast briefing?

When I'm putting together a party, I generally look for Melee, Ranged, Healing, Skills, Arcane as the roles I'm looking to fill. Ranged may be an evoker rather than an archer, but it's definitely a separate niche from melee fighter/barbarian/paladin.

My medical residency's board certification exam is over (I passed, in case you were wondering) so I will be returning to active duty soon enough. As soon as I have rested and cleared my head and also caught up with what has happened in the game so far. Thank you for your patience and understanding. :-)

Yay! Congratulations!

As for catching up on this game, it won't be easy. I think we opened a door. ;P

I don't usually get involved until the final vote, when I have some expectation of buying the resulting module.

All right, I'll get the Starday morning post done in the morning my time, say ten hours or so from now.

There is a +1 Breastplate and his magic sling staff still available if you want either of them.

Both Small-sized, unfortunately. ;P

I had a migraine all weekend but will try to get Nuri leveled within the next day or so. Honestly, it's an even level of cleric, so the only decision that really has to be made is an extra spell to have memorized.


Okay, those at the Gold Goblin are all tucked in now; posts for Braddon and Phillip are under construction and should be up later this afternoon; and I hope to open up Starday either tonight or first thing tomorrow. Hopefully tonight, and then everyone can get posting again.


Pathfinder Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hey! New subforum? Awesome! :D


Sorry, guys; had a migraine start Saturday morning, and I spent most of the weekend in bed avoiding light and noise. Slowly recovering tonight, but I'm not going to press my luck. I hope to be back to normal in the morning and will make updating the gameplay thread a priority.


I'll try to get a wrap-up post up tomorrow. I've had a headache all day, and looking at a screen is bad right now.


Okay, Snake's ready to turn in; Gristav's looking for the cat first; and Braddon and Phillip are going to continue to enjoy the evening with their respective dates. Everyone okay with me doing summary posts to wrap up Fireday and move us on to Starday? I know Mark is going to be out of town for the holidays for the next few weeks, so Phillip may get off to a slow start in the morning.


I'll try to get Nuri leveled up this weekend. This is a bad time of year to try to find a block of free time.


Akirra! You've changed! :D

Augury though is particularly tough for me as a GM. PCs what to augury whether they should enter a dungeon or open a door or whatever, the answer is almost always 'Weal and Woe' because the nature of the game is you face a challenge (Woe) and then get a reward (Weal). Add in that since I don't actually know the future and can't predict the random elements of the game, it is pretty tough to come up with a good answer. It would actually be a better spell and easier to use if it provided a 'yes'/'no' answer to a question, perhaps...

This. There is virtually never an instance in an adventure where going one way leads to bunnies and rainbows while the other leads to horrible, inescapable death. It would be much more useful to be able to ask a question like "Is the MacGuffin/kidnapped princess/BBEG down this corridor?" and get a yes or no answer than "Will good things or bad things happen to us if we go down this corridor?" If you're after the MacGuffin/princess/BBEG, then it's Weal to go down the corridor that leads to it ... but not if half the party dies or is captured before they get there, and as DM, I don't know if they'll win or lose an encounter before the dice start to roll.


I feel I ought to stabilize Sausage, but as far as Halla knows, it's just a tattooed pig while people's lives are at stake ... and even if Rikka were to explain his importance, Halla can't understand her as long as we're in combat. Don't suppose she speaks Varisian? :P

Btw, are you familiar with Big River? :)

If you right-click on the timestamp at the top right of any post, you should get a list of options that includes Copy Link URL. With that, you can direct-link to any post on the boards.

Though, if Braddon sees Phil he will update him on Dayn, which will inspire him to question Lexy about the incident.

Happy to see him encounter Braddon and get a heads up on the Dayn situation... which could also serve as an impetus to have him stay the night in the Goblin rather than elsewhere as well.

If you guys are both on board for a serendipitous meeting, please feel free to narrate it. I'm getting into crazy holiday busy times, so you guys having your own conversation takes some pressure off me to arrange it anyway. Since most of Braddon's alcohol consumption thus far has been dilute, he may well step away to the bar at some point while Lexy's enjoying the Ghoulette.

Here's a new guide to GMing a PbP, although not a PFS one in particular.

I don't play Society, but I believe they have a specific (non-Paizo.com) site for mustering characters for their PbP gamedays. Warhorn, or something similar?


Gris, Samaritha left the room after her latest utterance or Daynadrian wouldn't have felt free to discuss the details of the super-secret meeting. Do you intend to follow her to ask about the cat?


Pathfinder Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Usually by including a link to a hosting site like Photobucket or an interactive map like roll20.net.


Does anyone have anything else they're wanting to accomplish plot/mechanics-wise before we start thinking about wrapping up Fireday? Braddon and Phil, you're both in the same location and can easily run across each other if desired, for story or information-sharing purposes.


It's a bit meta, but the intent is that it's an invitation to the PCs. That's why I wanted to clarify OOC.


I don't know if this is an IC or OOC issue, but meta-wise, the invitation from Shorafa is A-plot material which everyone gets a chance to be a part of if they choose to, not part of your individual B-plots with Ethel or Lexy or Padraig or Jaelle and the Flying Cloud or whatever. (Snake doesn't really have his own B-plot yet, does he? Maybe Cassey.) If you feel that Gristav would try to see Shorafa tonight anyway, then he can go to the temple, but DM fiat is going to prevent him from getting a private meeting with her.


Okay, in character, what is our motivation to talk to the other tomb raiders? :)

I mean, if I'm at a tavern in real life, I'm not going to just go walking from table to table talking to strangers. If we were actively seeking some sort of information, I can see going out and rolling Diplomacies to try to pick up rumors, but thus far, in story, everything seems pretty straightforward to our PCs: The church assigns us a place to go loot; we go loot it; meanwhile, the other teams have their own assignments somewhere else. Metawise, I'm sure things are all going to go horribly wrong at some point, but the PCs have no reason to suspect everything isn't on the up-and-up.

Full disclosure: One of the main reasons I cancelled my AP subscription was that I got frustrated with NPCs monopolizing the plots, and I've quit building the face characters I used to favor because I'm tired of having the responsibility of kissing up to them. You can ask Mark about my going out of my way to give Irabeth the cold shoulder in his WotR. ;)


Meh, I was hoping that simply harassing the orks might be enough distraction for some of the kids to work free and run away on their own (not to mention not suffering AoOs from orks grappling their own prisoners as they escape).

Are we done with this RP encounter? I can't tell. I'm not sure if I should give more time for people to post or move things along.

Perhaps it would help if we had an objective? I'm really not clear on what our motivation is supposed to be to buddy up to our fellow delvers.


Yeah, the made-for-TV "sequels" are absolutely horrible, but I adore that movie, physics-defying ice-skating-trick finale and all. And the 1992 Soviet Olympic team that didn't exist because the Soviet Union collapsed between the time the movie was shot and when it was released. Good times.

Profession is an "Untrained No" skill, so you can't make an untrained Profession check.

CRB>Skill Descriptions>Profession wrote:
Untrained: Untrained laborers and assistants (that is, characters without any ranks in Profession) earn an average of 1 silver piece per day.


If Halla could get to you, she'd heal you, Eysteinn, but the snow's making it difficult; by the time she got to you, the orks would probably be back in the darkness. Shades of Reign of Winter and spending three rounds of double moves to go thirty feet, and by then the battle's over. :\


I'm reminded of the scene in The Cutting Edge when Moira Kelly does shots with D.B. Sweeney. The look on her face when she drinks the first one is what I was thinking of with Ethel, although Moira's character does manage to make her Fort save and keep drinking.

...Now I want to go watch that movie again. I'd say it's my guilty pleasure movie, but I'm not even ashamed of loving it. :)


So if the orks are holding the children, they're grappling, right? Slows them down, gives them penalties to attack and AC? Or are the children tied up and helpless, making them simple cargo that doesn't penalize whoever's carrying them?


You mean thing, making Ethel roll a Fort save. It's her worst save. Of course, if she's only going to roll a 1, it doesn't really matter what her bonus is.

EltonJ, the book you are thinking of with alternate versions of some of the classes is Pathfinder Unchained. The Strategy Guide is a book for beginners and has no new rules in it.

FWIW, the Paizo staff has flatly denied that Unchained is a step toward 2.0, but you're free to surmise what you want about it. The Strategy Guide is absolutely not what you're talking about, though.

Edited to fix link.

If the GM is not available to mark the games inactive, they will move to the Previous Campaigns section of your Campaigns tab automatically when there have been no posts in the Gameplay thread for three months.

Take a look at my Campaigns tab. Under Previous Campaigns, the ones with the (inactive) tab were marked such by the GM; the ones without it merely moved there after three months of inactivity.

If it bugs you to have them in your active list for that long, you can hide the Gameplay threads in the Play-by-Post forum using the ∅ on the right side of the thread listing, and that will hide them on your Campaigns tab as well.

EDIT: If the campaign is still active but you are no longer playing it it, you'll have to ask the GM to mark you as inactive. He/she can do that using the Edit This Campaign option on the Campaign Info tab.


What, scheduled activities? I've never found them that endearing myself. ;P


Rikka, you can Ready to cast the spell as soon as the globe of darkness moves forward into your range; that will allow you to interrupt their action of moving forward. I'm not sure what their speed is, but if they get a full round of actions while you Delay, you may be in the darkness and unable to cast at all.

Have you sent him a PM before? He may have accidentally blocked you: Block Sender is right next to Delete Message. He'll have to unblock you, but I don't remember offhand how to do it.


Don't know the ruleset. Good luck with it, though, if you decide to go through with it.

Why this applied to d20pfsrd.com and not Archives of Nethys (who still have the campaign specific names and such), I don't know.

d20pfsrd.com started out as a simple rules-reference site. When they added a web store to sell PDFs and things, they became a commercial entity. For some reason, different rules apply to commercial sites than to fan sites. They and Paizo figured out a way around the strictures of the OGL in this case by removing all Product Identity names.

Archives of Nethys is still a rules-reference site, not a web store, so they didn't have to do that.
