"Ha ha ha, you can't just find Dakar. You'd have better luck shouting his name from atop the wall. You only speak to Dakar if he wants to speak to you and if he wants to speak to you I highly recommend you don't resist."

Sczarni ****

Most of your answers can be found here. Including official rulings from Mike Brock.

Event coordinators are many things, but they are definitely not mind readers. They may have thought they were doing you a favor and letting you have the night off from running. If there is an event that you look forward to running share that enthusiasm with whomever is in charge and you probably will not have this problem again.

Sczarni ****

Blah it ate my edit post. I can see the DD bloodline as not stacking with bloodrager bloodlines since those abilities only work while in a blood rage. The DD bloodline could then be used outside of bloodrage.

Sczarni ****

Here is a bit from the DD section that might clear things up.

Blood of Dragons:A dragon disciple adds his level to his sorcerer levels when determining the powers gained from his bloodline. If the dragon disciple does not have levels of sorcerer, he instead gains bloodline powers of the draconic bloodline, using his dragon disciple level as his sorcerer level to determine the bonuses gained.

So combining that with the section in the Bloodrager about blood lines means the Draconic bloodlines need to match up.

Sczarni

Wizard then?

Sczarni

I think Merck and Jolly Roger are both in the Emerald Spire and Kludde forgot to take them off the list.

Sczarni ****

Thanks John, I appreciate the quick response. I will pass this on to the player.

I recently had a player that wanted to use this boon on his half-Orc Cavalier character as his mount. According to the boon he could select a bear. This became problematic as a bear animal companion only gets to size medium and without a feat or some other resource expenditure makes it to small for him to ride. We could not think of any other way to make this a working option for his character and I was wondering if anyone else had some ideas or could point out something we might be missing.

Sczarni ****

It would be nice to get some official clarification on "The Paths We Choose" since "Goblin Attack" was also a special event and was also only given to 4 star GMs and VOs, but I do not think it counts. I honestly hope it does count, but I would rather campaign leadership would be straight forward on this early to avoid disappointment later.

Miko and Vyk's attacks fall short of the mark and the creature still stands.

I will have a better idea on Sunday or Monday after I get a look at my ACG and what boon I get on Saturday.

Sczarni

I will throw my name on the list and see where it lands.

When you step out into the chilly night it almost seems darker then usual. As if some sort of malevolent presence had descended on Absolomn. When the museum comes into view the first thing you notice is that the front doors are wide open, very usual as the museum should be closed. Looking through the large double doors you see great pillars of hewn black stone support the vaulted ceiling of the Blakros Museum's grand entryway. Braziers mounted on the pillars cast white radiance from balls of continual light. A fossilized dinosaur skeleton occupies the northwest corner of the room.

Link to game map is up top. Csy still needs to post and pick an avatar so I can make a map token.

Thaddaeus' arrow strikes the large creature causing it to shrink down to Renli or Ahn's size before it collapses in the grass.

Genkuro I have sent you a link via PM. Reesa thanks for understanding and I will try to be more specific in my future requests.

Sczarni

@Reesa I believe you are already in one of Kludde's games and I'd like to get someone that isn't currently playing right now.

Sczarni

No word from the 5th player so I will take the next poster who would like to play 2-11 The Penumbral Accords.

Sczarni

Looks like we are going to do 2-11 The Penumbral Accords. Waiting on one more to confirm. If I do not get a replay by Monday morning I will put the last spot up for open recruitment.

Sczarni ****

Another thing to keep in mind is this will lock the characters to this adventure until it is finished. Meaning they can not play that character in another PFS game in between sessions of the module.

Sczarni ****

It looks like they are rotating races in based on previous boons. If they keep with this pattern you are likely to see the elemental races opening up in the future.

Sczarni

Moving along with recruitment.

Horef

Please check in by filling in a column on this sheet here.

Sczarni ****

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.

Sczarni ****

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.

Sczarni

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
