|Thomas Graham Venture-Lieutenant, Florida—Jacksonville aka Kyrie Ebonblade,|
I ran this for four players this weekend. They had a blast
They were really tired of alchemists fire by the end of the session though. Though the rogue and wizard were happy to 'return' fire. The fun point at the end was the group brought Ekkie with them and the bug bear demanded she turn on them in goblin.
Had he ordered her to do the Rogue.. it might have worked but she told Ekkie to kill the wizard. Her FRIEND! The person who gave her fire and daggers and more fire.. She
Fun was had by all. The Rogue even laughed as Ekkie kept trying to set him on fire with an Everburning torch.
I think the Pathfinder Society runs all new recruits through a CSOL (Common for Speakers of Other Languages) class or two before kicking them out to their death. You may know the words but your grammar is horrid.
I can see it.. (Language and Manners lessons)
"No Gottic.. the answer isn't 'I sets you on fire!'"
"No.. you use the salad fork.. not the candle'"
I say..put aside the hate and let them have heir fun (hopefully for 12 levels but I figure a few of them will burn/blow up along the way).
Still wish James would try out Gob-Zilla the 12 fire breathing alchemist/master chemist, but after running with his Cleric and Rogue I know ANY gob he plays will be a hoot and useful.
Remember, the folks that got the boon had to (mostly) survive one of the deadliest specials ever!

Scribbleface from "We Be Goblins" could write; so could Vorka the cannibal (who also kept dogs, *and a horse*!). There, canon supports it! ('Course, it didn't end too well for either of them...)
Well it could be argued the 'Heroes' of We Be Goblins didn't end well if you follow the story with the Adventures Path that followed after it.
IF I had one, which I don't. I think I'd go with the story,"There was this gnome with a scroll of reincarnate ...." and the story would end with .."Okay maybe burning the WHOLE town down was a mistake but I was feeling a bit put upon. ..."
With the details changing every time because I'd be playing lying goblin rogue.
Given that i have PbP for years and have seen all sorts of things happen. Player burnout, as well as GMs, real life intruding and such. One thing I can say for my gaming habit, without PbP a LOT of my military career would have been without gaming. And even more of some of my gamers in games I GM'd would have missed out.
I think some concrete rules or statement on PbP might be needed but please don't bring the banhammer for a some folks only way to play PFS.

I might order a few of those but I try to get Minis and Mats from my local store. I do my hardcover stuff through subscription so I figure that the rest should be at my FLGS like Hammer Hall

An goblin 'anti' Pyromaniac? I like it. Could also wait to see what comes of the winter witch archetype. I sudden have this image of a goblin running around with liquid ice flasks and the new ice blade widget from UE.
Define 'Game Day' in size.. one of our organizers has been doing a once a month three table event (1 afternoon/2 evening) gig for 3 months now.. is that big.. or do we need to get bigger?

I THOUGHT I had set it up to ship the Paths of Prestige book out asap.. but it says 'sidecart' instead..that was why I was curious.
Exactly.. I'm hearing the APG ones aren't.. (or the UC ones aren't according to some folks) and I'm constantly hearing that someone wants to play a pali/druid/bard/barb/ect and doesn't know how to build one (or have the time)
One of the biggest issues I see is GMs looking for options to get the game started and moving (I'm going to try my hand at it this coming weekend and I'm going through my stuff to see what I got on hand so to ensure the game starts on time, everyone has something they like and we can move along quickly).
Hence my question about more of the Iconis as Pregens.
Part of the reason I'm a bit confused about it.. is you get to use a lesser powered version on ANY ranged ammunition from the Grenadier archetype.
This is a low level version of Explosive missile and doesn't exclude one specific type of ranged weapon.
You can give the sheet to any character you have in PFS and they get access to the items, but you still have to have the gold to get them. It doesn't break anything for PFS. :)
THANK You.. that makes MUCH MORE SENSE.
Thankee greatly sire! (and makes it even more important to pick and choose which to give to which character, not that any of mine will have the TONS of coin to buy them anytime soon!)
Okay.. I read a LOT (A LOT.. I typically meet the 50 book/year challenge by June) and I have pretty much every book, novel, shortstory and memo pad sticky dealing with Pathfinder I can get (well maybe not the stick pad bit.. but you get the idea)
So getting into Society Play a bit, I was reading through the book and found out that you can download chronicle sheets for the characters IF YOU OWN the books (which I do.. got those lovely watermarks at the top of each PDF)
My question is..
There are some abilities/gear that seem.. a bit.. HIGH for starting characters in some of them. This stuff DOES scale yes? A sheet to maybe buff up a character a point or two is one thing.. but I don't want to BREAK the experience for everyone else.
Not to mention I only get to use these sheets ONCE, that much I get.
Wow.. I'm.. just blown away..
A question I have about Android Tablets.. they are more consistent in layout and commonality than Android phones I hope? I ask because I've got a few friends who complain about having 'bloat' apps on their phones to the point one makes it a point to root any android phone his family gets to get a new, current and clean install.
I think (as an iPad user) that the iPad should get some focus BUT I would suggest you continue to pursue the iPad AND Android focus since from what I've seen at my FLGS is typically a couple android units and several iPads (with a refurbished iPad1 making a handy game tool for folks who want a libary).
I don't know the spread of android devices as much since I use a kindle fire (it's a gift..and I like some of the free tools I got) but I have seen a LOT of rooted androids at the store.
My only gripe with the Sorcerer is the fact that they have to 'pause' to cast metamagic. (I've always thought that was ridiculous)
I think 3 'dead' levels that aren't really 'dead' is a minor point. Pathfinder in my opinion has made the Sorcerer MUCH more viable, bloodlines were one of the major selling points to PF for me. (That, clerics and Fighters.. )
