I too noticed that map A is missing from both the printed and pdf, it would seem that this AP was made and put together in a rush.

It's not missing. It's not intended to be a combat encounter. APs rarely, if ever, provide maps for encounters intended to be resolved through role-play.

The Drift Rock interferes with sensor readings (as mentioned on page 30), and the inability of sensors "to get a good reading" on the Acreon was meant to reflect that fact.

So can ship sensors detect life signs or not?

On page 325, under scanning, the first item listed that sensors are capable of is "basic information," including "living crew complement."

Can someone clarify. Do you have to have a subscription to get the extra map PDF with the "hide encounter numbers" button or did they not do this for this AP?

There are no interactive maps for this adventure. I have not seen any communication from Paizo on this particular decision.

Not really, sorry.

This write-up is a wonderful preview of the possible pitfalls of this adventure.

What is your party make-up B.T.W.?

This is immensely useful! Thank you for sharing!

As someone who doesn't use minis, I don't have to see the table much; just my players' faces. Portrait, and all of the tables it can possibly contain, works just fine for me!

I'm a little confused on how Eskolar is supposed to be handled. The PCs know that Nor is watching everything they do. What incentive is there for them to attack her or even open the container in the first place?

Never underestimate the curiosity of PCs...

And if they don't open it, there's no impact to this adventure, but it's pointed out that it will come back to affect the story in a future installment.

So August, October, then March? Is that a big gap because of the holiday season, or am I missing something?

The Pathfinder RPG has traditionally released 3 hardcovers per year (not counting the occasional Campaign Setting Hardcover, which are a separate line). One in the spring, one at GenCon, and one in the fall. So far, it appears Starfinder is following a similar pattern.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yes.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I don't have my book at hand, so someone correct me if I'm wrong...

But I believe "finesse-able" weapons, aka operative weapons, automatically allow you to use dex. No feat required.

This is exactly the next Starfinder book that I wanted! Yay!

I don't have a problem with Eoxians cause they're Evil, I have a problem with them cause they're Monsters.

Direct quote from Incident at Absalom Station:
"Although many sentient species find them disturbing, the elebrians are not considered “monsters,” at least in polite society. Eox is a full signatory to the Pact, and its undead inhabitants are equal citizens of the Pact Worlds."

The setting is the setting. Personally, this is how I've always run Golarion, so I love all this added Eox lore. If it doesn't work for your table, just adjust for what works for your group.

Hi Sara Marie. Seems my post from last night may have gotten lost in the shuffle.

Should I be concerned that I haven't received an authorization email yet, or does it simply stem from both of my subscriptions being new?

I have still not received an order authorization email. Should I be worried?

Agreed. The "in character" maps are, quite literally, the only maps from the Folios that I've ever found use for. Love them!

They didn't announce a summer Pathfinder hardcover at PaizoCon. Dunno if they did at GenCon.

They did not. There is also some uncertainty and potential shuffling of the "Encounter Codex" - though nothing definite there.

In fairness, the Gencon hardcover they did announce is the one I expect they want to get the buzz. And that's Starfinder. For all we know, that is the Gencon "Pathfinder" hardcover.

It is taking the GenCon hardcover slot.

Lisa Stevens addresses this topic in another thread.

For convenience:

I will throw this in there. We have some books coming out in 2017 that we just weren't ready to announce at GenCon this year. Erik did a rather large change to the schedule only a few weeks before the convention and we are still figuring out how to get everything done while also launching Starfinder. We knew folks would be disappointed that there were no new announcements, especially about hardcover books, but there will be some. We just weren't ready to announce them yet and decided that, although a great venue for announcements, we weren't going to let GenCon dictate when we make our announcements. So the stuff that was ready to announce got announced. I am expecting the other stuff will get announced in the next few months as it gets firmed up.

The closest you'll get to a "written statement" is the core rulebook, which indicates that the "standard fantasy" point buy is 15 points. The APs are designed with that expectation—that, and 4 players using the medium XP track. The more you deviate from those norms, the more you'll need to adjust the encounters.

From here

Until the Core Rulebook changes, I don't see the core assumption changing. They have to build these things basically with the assumption that the group only has Core Rulebooks, a bestiary, and maybe access to the PRD for additional bestiary stats.

They seem to think that Paizo is involved in almost everything, as they're saying that Paizo is also behind the publication of an English-language edition of Ulisses Spiele's The Dark Eye (originally Das Schwarze Auge.) I wonder how long before they make an article where they claim that Paizo is responsible for the 5e books? :P

Based on the advertising card for The Dark Eye Kickstarter that came with my Paizo subscription, and which contains both the Ulisses Spiele Logo AND the Paizo golem, I'd say that particular item is true. Ulisses Spiele does the German translation of Pathfinder. Everything (admittedly little) I've found seems to indicate that Paizo is returning the favor by helping them with the publication of the Dark Eye's English translation.

Furthermore... I'm also frustrated at the idea that these are "retcons" and not "errata." There's a weird disconnect RPG players have between a company fixing a rule that's broken ("Oh good, they fixed an error and now the game works better!") and fixing flavor that's broken ("What? They robbed content from my game!").

I guess part of the problem is, that (from a customer standpoint) rule fixes actually improve the game (and apart from that, setting guys like me don't care for the rules anyway^^) while flavor fixes (as long as they don't fix glaring inconsistencies) rather change the setting in another direction. And most of the time, you don't hear from those people liking the change but from those who actually liked the former state of the art.

Though, personally, rather than complain about those minor fixes I just tend to ignore them for my own version of Golarion if i don't like them. I mean, I already change so much (i.e. integrating stuff from other settings) that it doesn't matter if you're doing some changes on your own.

In fact, I view the fixing of flavor errors (such as what happened with Erastil) as improving the game as much (if not more) than simply fixing a broken rule.

Indeed. I'm fascinated by the world content and love presenting the setting, as much as I can, in the fashion intended by the creators. Meanwhile, I pay zero attention to errata files and FAQs. If a rules question or issue comes up we just issue a ruling and move on. Nothing bogs down fun at the table more than rules discussions...


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hmmm...

I'd have to say it's a tie between Iron Gods and Jade Regent. Love both the themes and the execution.

If I absolutely had to pick one, I'd let Jared Blando's sweet, sweet maps push me towards Jade Regent. I miss him... :-(

I don't think the ARG itself is not viable or anything, but the race builder system is really not a very good system for balancing races.
So the main point of the ARG is just worthless then, and Paizo decided to drop it? So what are we supposed to do with these overpowered Races, then, like the Munavri?

I love the ARG, and I've hardly ever even looked at the race builder chapter. I'd say opinions may vary on the "main point" of that book.

As for "what to do with these overpowered races," it's left up to each individual table/GM/group as usual.

Since these are your first items after starting the subscription, they were created back when you started the subscription. Looks like your account is showing an email from 7/29/15. I've sent you another one since the price of the AP was fixed.

Got it! Thank you!

Super excited for this one, and just in time for me to be able to restart my sub as well!

And yes, I've been following the info for this AP since its announcement last year, and I've always understood it to be strictly Kintargo-based.

Can't wait for Volume 1!

The Nerdist ranked their top 10 D&D modules of all time, and they put Red Hand of Doom at #4. Kinda cool?

Hey Paizo, imma let yo finish, but I think that Kobold Press' Advanced Races Compendium is going to be the best Pathfinder race book of ALL TIME!

I'm sure that's going to be a great book. But it's a rules heavy, setting neutral book (with some Midgard sidebars).

I'm much more interested in a book about the races and their place in the Inner Sea.

Depending upon which group/game I'm playing with, I intend to implement the following items from Unchained strategically. They all look fun, but I think different systems will benefit different flavors of campaign and levels of experience. I happen to play with multiple groups that greatly vary in those regards.

Classes
Rogue, Monk, and Barbarian will, generally, be open to everyone.
Summoner, I still need to look at more in depth. I've always banned the class, and while I like the flavor changes here, I'm not yet convinced that I shall lift that ban.

Skills and Options
Background Skills
Skill Unlocks, as written (free for Rogues and feat per skill for everyone else).
Variant Multiclassing (in addition to regular MC)

Gameplay
Stamina System will be limited to Fighters (for free) for now.
Wound Thresholds (only in my super experienced, high-powered/high level group)
Diseases and Poisons

Magic
Automatic Bonus Progression (in new and "relatively new" games; too complex to incorporate in games that have been going for a long time)

And that's where I am at for now. I'm still working my way through a lot of the sections in this fantastic supplement. I've only scratched the surface of Chapter 4, and I haven't even looked at Chapter 5 yet.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The blog doesn't claim that the game is based on Fate. It merely references Fate and Dread as other indie role-playing games.


Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah, I asked them for an update on their facebook page. This was their update, as of March 3rd:

"Q-workshop: Hi! We had an issue with colors of Jade Regent, we admit it... It will be out really soon, we promise!"

The forthcoming novel from Dave Gross, Lord of Runes, will likely be of interest to you.

Or they're just printing the monsters that they think are the coolest/most thematic for a given volume. Once another mythological/folklore entry matches up with those subjective guidelines, I'm sure you'll see more!

Yup. I've never allowed Summoners in my games for pretty much all the reasons mentioned in this thread. I'm pretty excited by what I've read over the past year regarding the potential changes coming in this book and am hopeful that I'll be able to lift that restriction.
