Congrats Nefreet! One of these days we need to sit at the same table.

Sczarni *****

Perhaps you should rephrase that so as not to blindside others with a massive spoiler?

Sczarni *****

Should I have access to these by now, or do I need to poke someone to get them added to my downloads?

Marshall with the axe was Mika and he was fantastic.

Another exciting moment for me was when an ACG player told me that in their region they didn't encounter ruffians, they encountered Pirate Robs.

Nice to know that practice is done in other regions besides ours.

Sczarni

Basically the golden rule is you can never have two of the same chronicle on a character ever.

Sczarni *****

Arguing minor details isn't going to change the list of allowed animals in the Core campaign. Every single source you reference is pertaining to specifics. Like the paladin mount section lists the available mounts, heavy horse, pony, boar, riding dog, ect. Celestial template also a specific template.

You can continue this all day as others tell you why a Roc is not core legal. Or you can play the classic campaign where that and many other ACs are legal. The point of the Core campaign is to be extremely restrictive. If this bothers you then perhaps Core is not your cup of tea.

Sczarni *****

Your second point is simply a reference to the fact that the beastiary has other options. Since no specific companion is listed with out stats in the core rule book and the bestiary is not a legal sorce for the CORE campaign a Roc is not legal. If your second point read as such, "The additional companions can be found in the beastiary, Roc, T-Rex, Dire bat, ect." Then you have access to those animals, but since it is more of a sales pitch alluding to the existence of other options it does not make it a solid rule to use a non legal source.

In addition, as the chronicle isn't filled out until the end of the adventure, one can apply a "dead" chronicle to a stillborn/unused character number.

Not if I get your character number at the start of the scenario like any good GM should.

Sczarni

Where abouts is the other side of the country?

Sczarni

Not that I have any plans on doing this, but given the nature of PbP would it be legal to play at one table of the special while running a different table in the same event?

Sczarni

I do not believe there is a plan to change the current races. If there is you would be to late to squeeze it in via PbP as it goes by finish date not start date.

Sczarni

Mine is a bit behind I think. I'll have to look at my Dragon's demand credits.

Sczarni *****

What if you wild shape with an intelligent item? Would that be able to function on it's own while melded with you? For example a certain sword with the ability to cast guidance.

Sczarni

Not as active as I used to be, but present with 5 stars.

Sczarni *****

The required table numbers should be listed in the scenarios description. Like this one.

I've always assumed that in that situation you just swap the illegal character component out for something legal. :shrug:

I would have to vote in favor of this. I do not believe it is the in the best interest of anyone to penalize a player due to a change in rules. Simply replace the AC and give it the same tricks.

Sczarni

Aodan and Davros:
It is a Homunculus, a small servant construct made with it's creators blood. It has the ability to attack as it flies by and a poisonous bite that can put it's victims to sleep.

Aodan and Eugene both manage to wound the creature ending it's giggles and causing it to hiss. It spreads it's wings and swoops down at Eugene biting at the man before flying over to Aodan.

Bite: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14

:::::::::::::Round 1::::::::::::::

22 Davros
19 ZIlchus
14 Eugene
7 Aodan
6 Ugly baby (11)

Eugene gets an AoO as it flies past. Everyone is back up.

Sczarni

Davros finds a scroll of campfire wall, a scroll of excruciating deformation, a scroll of haunting mists, and a scroll of magic circle against chaos. Eugene is unable to identify what the bottles and vials contain, but he does three different potions and two similar vials.

Aodan checks the chest and unlocks the chest with a key. He can see nothing wrong with the chest and opens it. Only to have a loud shriek fill his ears.

Aodan fort save:
DC 16 for half of 4d6 ⇒ (2, 6, 2, 5) = 15. Otherwise you take full damage and are dazed for 1 round.

While the noise fills the room, only Aodan seems to be truly effected.

What is inside the chest.:
Inside are six of the wizards spell books containing a great many spells. [ooc]It has all level 0 spells and a huge list that I will add to the campaign thread around lunch time as I have run out of time now.

Bonekeep can be extremely brutal. I've killed a lot of players in the first one.
This is why we don't see Kysh at our gamedays anymore, most GMs just kill characters in Bonekeep 1.

Yeah they don't let my black hooded henchmen into the stores anymore.

Sczarni

As the group heals up after the bedbear attack Davros takes a peak in the draw he opened, which may or may not have had something to do with the bear appearing. Inside the drawer is a set of keys and a gold ring set with a large black pearl.

Sczarni

Bonekeep can be extremely brutal. I've killed a lot of players in the first one.

That is not correct. Only the Core rule book, the character traits web enhancement, and the guide to organized play are core legal. The field guide, often confused with the guide to organized play, is not legal for core. So no there are no vanities available unless they appear on a chronicle.

Sczarni

I liked having the channel positive revelation along with quick channel at higher levels. You can undue a lot of damage fast that way.

Barding is fine.

As long as it is not a named magical item. For example a cat animal companion can not get a barded piece of rhino hide armor.

Sczarni

Aodan sees nothing but aura in this room.

Sczarni

"Your friend is right, the leather bag would not be sufficient to protect me. I have no ill wills against any of you. I would gladly walk free of this place since the one known as Hunclay is dead." The Shae steps closer to the gate, "but tell me. How do I know I can trust you and that this isn't some sort of trick by the one known as Hunclay?"

Because of the over bearing brightness of the wall of light it will block vision to what is back on the other side. I added lines to show the effective areas of the wall of light to the map.

Sczarni *****

The idea is to open up as many possibilities with in the scenarios as possible. Can you list ten scenarios off the top of your head that have a mundane gem worth enough to qualify? We are Pathfinders and are all about the magical items not the gold and jewels. I say yes a pearl of power would count.

Sczarni

You can also apply one of these to a character. Taking the different rewards as your character reaches the appropriate level and you earn the appropriate number of stars.

Also congrats on your first star and thank you for sharing the GM work load.

Sczarni

Season 6 would be interesting for core. I just don't want to run destiny of the sands 3 again, other then that season 5 is ok. Another thing to consider is supplementing modules in if we run out of senarios to reach the next tier bracket.

Sczarni

I am fine with another person. As long as they are ok with the GM rotation. Ryan's wizard is probably fine if he runs or plays another character in wounded wisp. Speaking of which, what is the GM rotation going to be?

Sczarni

I have the level 2 bard and a brand new cleric.
Also which season are we thinking? I wouldn't mind trying 6, but open to the others as well.

Sczarni

I have a bard with credits in Wounded Wisp, Confirmation and Silent Tide. Which season are we looking at for CORE? I already have credit for running and playing 0-1 and credit for running 0-5.

RyanH are you refering to Maximos? I can't remember if I ran that one or played in it with my bard.

Sczarni

Miko:
You notice that the gem carvings in the floor represent old osiron style cuts for a sapphire, emerald, topaz and ruby (that order going from east to west). Looking at the statue with the lantern you can clearly see this one is not going to give you the angle you need. Same goes for the one on your right. I'll mark the colors on the map once you share this info.

Sczarni

I might be interested in the CORE group.

Sczarni

Bloodrager dragon disciples are possible, but there are some powers that do not overlap which seems to be a big deal breaker for some. There was a thread on the topic a while back. You can check it out here if you like.

Sczarni *****

I would like a running count on how many times Zilchus is brought up.

Sczarni

They will be aviable once the book comes out in a few months. Until then it's as Megabeus stated.

Sczarni *****

This is very cool and I look forward to tinkering with it. Thanks to everyone that made this happen.

Sczarni *****

The only place I have seen these used mechanically is on the GM star reward chronicle sheets. Each one of the three chronicles is based on one of the schools and gives out thematic rewards based on the school chosen.

Sczarni *****

If you do go the PbP route and you are limited to a phone there is an app for android that helps cut down on typing. It's called Wayfinder and last I saw it was $1.

Sczarni *****

Congrats Andrea! I knew you'd be just behind me ;). Andrea took me under her wing when I first started playing PFS. She showed me how rewarding it can be to give back to my PFS community and taught me how to be a better GM through her feed back and example. We've had a friendly race to see who could hit 5 stars first, but honestly I can never equal her impact on Northern California community.

Painlord should be along shortly. He got distracted counting all his kobold kills in our Dragon's Demand game.

Sczarni *****

here is a link to the last PbP game day. These threads pop up in the grand lodge section of the forums. When they come up for PbP the recruitment threads have multiple postings.

I have not taken the time to try out VTT, but you can contact Jesse Davis the online VC for details.

Sczarni *****

Again I feel like I have to point this out. There is a strong online community that holds conventions for both VTT and PbP. These conventions give out the same race boons that the other conventions do. If you can post on these boards you have access to these boons if you put in the effort.

Paizo has no interest in selling boons for profit. Yes they do auction off a few every year, but those are for charity purposes. While it seems like a nice idea and there might be some strong feed back in favor of it. I do not see Pazio doing this to its players.

Sczarni

I did not see anything that raised a red flag. If monk is your favored class for the character you can still add the +1 hp or +1 skill point.

Sczarni

Even after kicking in the door Pau's call goes unanswered.

Sczarni

Pau throws his shoulder into the door and the door seems to give a little, but still stands locked against the Pathfinders.

Sczarni *****

Since everyone else is posting I was curious what my numbers looked like. Also counting all sessions as single items.

6-98 and 6-99 are single table, pregenerated character scenarios. One will convert to a 4 star GM exclusive and the other to a 5 star GM exclusive after Gen Con.

Well, I was excited until I saw that.
Why?

Why? Because not everyone can attend conventions, not everyone can get together with groups that have a 4 or 5 star GM, and even when they do, that might not be what's on the docket. I am certain this is less of a concern in areas with a very active PFS participation, but not all areas... and thus not all players... have that luxury.

I get specials like Bonekeep, designed as special challenge to your player characters, but these are two scenarios using specific pregens to allow players to play something outside of the normal allowances for PFS, and now the access to them will become gated. I am sorry but I do not agree with using something as a reward to your 4/5 star GMs, when that reward comes at the expense of limiting the access to other players.

These adventures seem to me to be something more of the player base would be interested in experiencing, but now it will put a limit on that, and I just don't see the point. You should never design a reward for some, that makes other people beholden to them to be able to experience game content.

Just my take, obviously you may feel otherwise.

I see this complaint a lot still and I do not really see it as a valid one anymore. There is a very strong online community with 4 and 5 star gms and online conventions for both VTT and PbP, they even give out boons. The games are there you just need to look a little harder. Try reaching out to one of the Online VOs (yes there are specific VOs just for online play) who would love to show you how to get started.

This creature is beyond Miko's knowledge as she tries to identify it. Dylara lands a heavy blow, but the creature manages to instantly heal some of the damage she cause. Melon also lands a hit but the tiny wound disappears in the blink of an eye. Tuich is unable to strike the other skeleton with her weapon this time.

The skeletons finish advancing and begin attacking with their claws.

Blue vs Melon: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6
Blue vs Melon: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 2 = 17

Yellow vs Tuich: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 2 = 13

Green vs Vyk: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 2 = 22
Confim: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4

Melon manages to avoid all the attacks and Tuich has no trouble either. Vyk seems to have not noticed the skeleton move up next to him and its claws rake his arm.

::::::::Round 1:::::::::::

Vincent
Bug eye monster
Tuich
Dylara
Skeletons
Khismia
Vyk
Miko

Sczarni

Looked it up. It works like the Slayer ability which is a move action, so I just take one off the attack roll and the damage.

Dylara's long sword bites deep into the strange creatures flesh and Melon manages to sink a talon in as well, but it is not enough to finish the creature off.

Tuich summons up her reach weapon while the skeletons advance. Tuich gets an AoO.

::::::::Surprise Round :::::::::::

Vincent
Blue Space Lions
Tuich
Dylara
Skeletons
Khismia
Vyk
Miko

Miko gets a move or a standard in the Surprise round. Vincent you get regular actions in the first round of combat.
