You keep coming back to the fact that it does +4 instead of +2 for forcing door and locks. This is simply due to it being a better quality tool much like master work tools work better then regular tools. You also pointed out the keen longbow. While the chronicle bends the rules about how the mechanics are applied it still uses an existing game mechanic. Choosing to apply this ability as by passing all DR applies a special ability that simply does not exist in the games mechanics.

Sczarni ****

No where does it state the word "all" in there. It simply states that it by passes DR. If you are confused by what type of DR an adamantine item by passes I would refer you to the DR section in the core rule book. Again this is a mundane none magical item, simply putting the words "Trusty Buddy" on it does not give it all DR by passing power.

Sczarni ****

I see no reason to continue pointing out what myself and others have stated about this being a clear typo. The only thing I see this "rule of yes" doing is getting people to spend 3,002 gold on an ability that this item clearly does not have.

I'm inclined to believe the wording is intentional. It's called the "trusty buddy" after all, and I find the idea of a mundane crowbar being the answer when all other forms of attack fail to be quite hilarious and awesome.

I don't believe the kinds of creatures that this would prove superior against (DR/-- and DR/epic) are prevalent enough in PFS scenarios to really make this a "must have" item for most players. I know I would prefer an adamantine greatsword for my two-handed melee characters against pretty much every encounter I've played through to date, and the extra investment in improvised weapon feats for every other character seems extraneous in most cases. I'll admit, the trusty buddy is good, really good even. I would still allow it to work as written at my table precisely because the quirkiness of the item would make it really easy to describe the action of the encounter in a fun, flavorful way.

So you believe that a 3,002 gold non magical tool is more powerful then a +4 weapon? Also considering there is no weapon that gets through DR/-? That's a pretty long leap of faith for a novelty item.

Sczarni ****

Not at all, it simply counts as a weapon made of that type of material so would only get through the appropriate DR and hardness.

Sczarni ****

There are several online cons that give out con boons. Both for PbP and VTT so everyone has a chance at getting these boons now, if they are willing to put forth the effort.

Vyk holds his mace ready to strike the blob while Miko's attempt to hit it with acid only hits a wall. The blob lurches awkwardly forward toward Vyk. As it rounds the corner Vyk strikes it with his silver mace which releases an inhuman scream from the blob as if the mace was burning it. It swings it's ill formed gloppy arm at Vyk.

Melee: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 2 = 13

Vyk side steps the attack with ease.

Tuich
Vyk
Miko
Fat glob (2)
Vincent

Vincent is up.

Sczarni

What did you want to know about the creature?

Sczarni

Best I have is a level 5 Osirion monk.

Sczarni

Since one of my games in starting it's final encounter I am going to start recruitment for my next game. The following players please fill out the form here.

PatheticWretch
OneLungBL
Guccui Flipper Coon
Csy

If you are not familiar with this check list you just need to fill in your name at the top of a blank column. Then go down the list of scenarios and put 0 for played or not interested, 1 for interested and 2 for very interested. I am only looking for five players and one spot is reserved at this point.

Edit: If you are new to this thread and you would like to get in on a game there is a link to the wait list above the top of the thread. It is also a good idea to dot the game play thread and keep an eye on the thread as there are some open recruitment spots that open up.

Sczarni ****

Sadly it is going to be a while before the boons for these races become available again (at least a year). You can try your luck in the boon trading thread to see if any of the really old ones are still floating around unused. Unfortunately for your friend, he was just a bit to late to the party.

Sczarni ****

Got my scenario this morning so I should be all set by game day.

Sczarni

Vincent approaches the statue with is blade drawn....and nothing happens.

Sczarni ****

That is the idea, though as stated it is a grey area. You shouldn't have to much trouble as most PbP GM's currently allow it.

You cant play the character in two different games at the same time, but assigning a chronicle to a character you are playing should be fine. DM credit or playing a pregen or game like We Be Goblins 1 & 2 are fine, but playing the same character in multiple games at once is not.

In the case of DM credit, it doesn't apply until after the character is freed up, and is then applied in the correct order. So you do not level up, get a bunch of extra monies, and/or suddenly have a new boon feature in the middle of the game you are playing in.

Citation needed on the parts I've bolded. I do not believe this is PFS-legal.

This is a grey area that has not been given an official wording that I know of yet. The spirit of the idea is that GM credits can "float" until a character of appropriate level becomes available for credit to be applied. Thus the dates don't always appear in the correct order.

Sczarni

Is this going to be for PFS credit?

Sczarni

Depends on the GM. I don't send out PMs for recruitment and Kludde does if he has time. Your best bet would be to check in on a regular basis. This can also help as games will go to open recruitment if the GM gets a lot of non responses from the list.

Sczarni ****

I wouldn't put to much stock into this particular boon as it is just a reskinned bear. Are you really excited about making a character with a bear companion? If the answer is yes then by all means enjoy. If not then maybe just let this boon go.

Sczarni

AoO: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7

The goblin tries to strike Miyako but is a bit slow to react and only manages to hit the ground.

Bram is awake and has actions.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Just go look at Painlord's profile page. He has a whole list he's done along with Doomed Hero's guide to play by post.

Sczarni

I added a loot section to the campaign thread. So far just the mithral daggers which I know Candrana has one, but who picked up the other?

Sczarni

So Paizo has this really bad habit of using very similar names for things. This causes a lot of confusion when it comes to things like "race trait", "racial trait" and the adopted trait. The adopted trait lets you pick a race trait from another race. You went with Elf which would allow for a trait like Forlorn or Warrior of Old. It does not let you pick racial traits like bow proficiency from a races stat block. Clear as mud?

Damnit, I can never remember how those things are supposed to go.

Being a jerk in character is still being a jerk.
And making an obvious joke in character is still making a joke, even if it's a bad one.

You can dance around this all day but you are still going to end up at the fact that you called a new player stupid for asking a question. The only way I can see you saving any face here would be to apologize and move on.

Also check out this blog here so you aren't blind sided by the up coming restricted race changes.

The way I recruit is I will call out two blocks of six to 5 players over about 6 days. If I fail to make a table I switch to open recruitment to fill the slots. Any players that do not reply at all are considered inactive and are removed from the list. I do it this way to clear part of the list but not waiting 2-3 weeks to start a game. Table sizes vary in PbP as more players can seriously slow down the game. I refuse to run seven, I can be talked into six sometimes, but I feel comfortable at five.

Sczarni

Renli pushes the door open with his walking stick. The heat is palpable inside the primitive, one-room hovel. Tinder from the fireplace is strewn about, sparking the fires that now climb the reed walls. The room itself is in shambles. An eviscerated human body sprawls across the floor, and a butchered wolf lies against the wall by the front door. Puddles of blood surround them. The man's hands are tied to a rough wooden table, upon which sits an ornate-but empty-box and a blood-spattered manuscript.

"They said they were only going to scare him and take back what belongs to the fey. They didn't say anything about burning down Hemzel's house," Gire says sadly.

Sczarni

Sorry Brother Bear and Shifty I was only looking for three more players and I got them, so the game is currently full. Keep an eye on this thread though because I should be recruiting another in 3 weeks or so.

Sczarni

I was going to shy away from any muti-part scenarios but if everyone is up for it I can run a double of City of Strangers 1 and 2.

Sczarni

Gire flys out from behind the hut her wings fluttering with excitement. "New friends I am very sorry about trying to trap you in the vines like that." With a snap of her fingers the vines and brambles shrink back down to normal size. "You seem really strong, maybe as my new friends you could protect me from Cyflymder?"

Sczarni

I let the players decide that with this handy little spread sheet Kludde made. Right now it's leaning toward Frost Fur Captives but that can change based on what the other players can play. So go ahead and fill in your spot Derek W.

Sczarni

Still no responses so going to open recruitment. The next three people interested get a spot.

Sczarni ****

You were probably looking for this thread here.

Sczarni

If you are looking for a good how to guide I recommend this one.

Sczarni

Only reason I can think of is you signed up before the first one was deleted and you were on the list twice.

Sczarni

Time to move down the list. Calling the following players to check in to this list here.

Chainmail
Captain Marvalous
Moondragon Starshadow
Potenza
Wilmannator

If you do not wish to play at this time you need to at least acknowledge you are still active to keep your spot on the list.

Sczarni

Now that the business of getting more Tieflings and Aasimars out there is finished it is time to move the line forward.

StephNyan
Motleyboi99
Azih
Zan Thrax
Wasted
pwaustin

The first four players listed that go to this list here and put their names at the top get a spot. Please go down the list and mark 0 for played, 1 for interested and 2 for very interested. If you do not wish to play please post here to keep your spot in line. I have one spot currently reserved so only looking for a total of five players.

Sczarni

  • Deane Beman
  • Blue Dove
  • Wanderer 82
  • Leonel
  • RyanH
  • Magabeus

We will be playing 0-23: Tide of Morning. Check in to the thread here and we should be rolling as early as tomorrow. I was only planning on five but since Magabeus was cool enough to let others in front of him he gets a spot. Everyone else should get in the habit of checking in here as we try and pull from the list and there are sometimes open recruitment possibilities.

Edit: The main list has been updated and current players along with non responses have been removed.

Sczarni

I pulled a bunch off the list but I need to get the game going so switched to open recruitment. Your spot will still have moved up so continue keeping tabs here for when your name is called. I will probably start recruiting for another game in a week or two. Leonel are you brand new because you didn't fill out the list.

Sczarni

Next three people that sign in on the sheet linked above are in. Looking to start tomorrow.

If race boons become useless after a year or so I may get in the habit of crumpling them up or turning them into airplanes to throw at random people. Or trade them for something I may enjoy more.

So being able to play a race for a couple of years before anyone else isn't worth holding on to it?

I mean, we know that the elemental races are going to be used as GM boons through at least GenCon 2015, and they've stated they don't want to make a race boon they just gave out worthless, so at the earliest they would wait until the season after they stopped handing the boon out to make them generally available, if ever, meaning even if a specific copy of the boon is handed out with the last batch, it still allows you to play that race at least a year before the general public.

By the time I get to making one they will be available. They no longer hold any appeal to me and I would rather pass them along to a random person using the method stated above.

Given that I just traded away an Elemental race boon/Paragon of Society for a triple-race boon, I would be more than happy to acquire an elemental racial boon (or any non-wayang/nagaji/kitsune boon for that matter). If it would bring you more pleasure to give away such a boon than hold onto it, by all means I promise to give it a good home. Furthermore, if it is your sincere desire to gain amusement for your boon in the form of throwing paper airplanes at people, I will be at GenCon. If you will as well, we can arrange a meeting for you to throw as many different paper-airplane racial boons at me as you wish, should I be then allowed to keep said boons.

This is a serious offer. I want everyone to enjoy PFS, and if this will make us each happier, I'll do it. In the main PFS room.

PS: In fact, I'll make that deal with anyone. If anyone would enjoy donating racial boons to me via paper airplane at GenCon, message me and we'll arrange it!...

Unfortunately I will not be at Gencon as I would gladly throw one your way.

Looking to start a yet to be determined game early next week. Pulling the following players from the list.

  • Shiffer
  • Seth86
  • Straff
  • Deane Beman
  • Alice Margetroid

First five players who go here and fill there name in at the top and select 0 for played, 1 for interested and 2 for very interested will get a spot. If I do not get enough responses I will move down the list. Please at least acknowledge you are still paying attention or you may be removed from the main list.

Oh right a scythe is a times four crit, duh. Sorry for the delay, in laws are in town and we were up at my parent's cabin.

Keeran's scythe easily takes the goblin in front of him. The goblin barking orders mumbles some words and points at Keeran.
