Thank you all for everything! I'm very excited about the PFS. I've organized a little official event with 25 players and 5 master, but i've never played a Pathfinder Society scenario. In Italy there aren't public Pathfinder Society Events because few people speak english (yes i know, this is embarassing). So i've decide to organize an official event, i've translated this scenario, found the masters and players (I think that at least a quarter of them will'be beginner). After the event i'll post a report with photos and opinions.

Whatever happens, I know we will have a lot of fun!!

This is amazing.

Buona fortuna!

Can the portcullis be dropped mid combat? Are the front doors locked?

Yes and yes.

The second story wasn't deemed necessary for the vast majority of PCs who would be playing, so it wasn't drawn (and I remember correctly, the way up was left off the map...).

This leaves it up to the GM to describe the second story should it come down to that.

Your best bet is to print the scenarios and only use your tablet to reference things.

If you're at my table, we'll see.

Then again, if your definition of "unkillable" includes using PP to bring him back, you're probably right.

You vastly over-estimate a goblin's ability to earn prestige and not spend it on things like porters, heralds, titles, land, etc.

Not so much a challenge, but a statement of fact based solely on empirical evidence. As much as the little guy tries to get killed, it just hasn't happened. And he's level 8 and been on the slow track for most of it.

We're short a cleric this time around, but do have a paladin. I can talk to the crew. It's a matter of finding someone willing to put up with goblin shenanigans and try to keep him alive despite the GMs (and my) best intentions.

Confirmed Field Agent: Having successfully completed and documented your Confirmation, one of the Three Masters has formally recognized you as a field agent and given you a wayfinder engraved with your name and the date of your graduation. If this is the first time you have received this boon for any of your characters, you receive this wayfinder for free; otherwise, you may acquire it by spending 1 Prestige Point. Furthermore, if you assign this Chronicle sheet to a character whose starting XP is 0, you reduce the Prestige Point cost of any wayfinder enhancement vanities you purchase to modify this wayfinder by 1 (minimum 1).

Painlord did a good post on this exact issue a while back. But the message bears repeating.

I also second Rob's comments regarding clear spindles.

I like building solid characters as much as the next guy, but having a decent Will save precludes the need for a clear spindle for me. There's other, less janky ways to protect yourself against mind control. The clear spindle for me is like enabling mods when playing a game... achievements get disabled ;)

I was at Winter War last year during the same weekend, but I heard from some of the PFS GMs that there were issues with the way the convention staff treated them. If you look at the convention thread on these forums, there wasn't much of a response.

Sometimes conventions over promise the number of slots they can offer w/o having a good base for support from GMs or a champion to attract that support. On the plus side, Mortika's there this year, and that's a guaranteed fun time.

Looking up the Young template is bad news no matter what you're playing. *winces*
Is that because it only seems to be used on creatures that get stronger from it? ;)

Pretty much.

"Uhoh...throw a young template on that thing."

"Oh good, we got it up to 3 rounds of survival. Sounds good to us! Publish it!"

I kind of miss having a better opportunity to fail faction missions with Garble. Poor little guy was getting about 1.1 PP per game til Seaon 5. "Goblin, go draw me a picture of this house in town." *returns with a picture of a burning house and dead people and dogs that looks like a 5 year old drew* "WHAT IS THIS?" GM: "uh... Roll a Knowl..." Me: "No."

It has 20 cannon balls in its clip. After firing, it's a swift action to fire again (so it can fire twice in a round). To add a cannon ball to the clip (e.g. it fires every round for 10 rounds), it must spend a standard action per cannon ball.

One could argue that since it's a firearm and has a range increment of 100-ft, that anything within that range is a touch attack.

You know, with a goblin constantly point every encounter, this scenario runs much differently.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

There is not, but it could easily be represented by any forest setting that provides adequate distance and terrain between the PCs and the minotaur. The specifics of the map aren't really that important, it's the "how do we work together to save Janira and defeat the minotaur while navigating some terrain obstacles" that's important.
