1d6 ⇒ 1

Dunbar and Ēoswulf both throw weapons at the drake, however only Ēoswulf's javelin strikes the creature leaving a nasty wound. Geoclunicus finds the drake is within range and sends a wave of bright dazzling colors at the drake.

Will: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8

1d4 ⇒ 1

The drake falls helplessly back into the river as Filla tries to hit it with an arrow.

Concealment over 20 is good: 1d100 ⇒ 90

blood rises from the water after Fillia's arrow confirming the hit.

Round 2

27 Fillia
20 Maximos
17 Flying creature (-13/1 NL)
12 Dunbar
7 Ēoswulf [-1]
6 Geoclunicus [-1]

Maximos is up and the creature is out of sight in the water.

Think I only bought the black dragon hide breastplate.

Dunbar's readied action takes a standard action on his turn. The wolf beat his initiative and jumped on to the ship before Dunbar had a chance to ready that action. This is why I allowed him to change his action if he wished. Since he decided to proceed with the shot while in melee it provokes an AoO.

Ēoswulf moves around the wolf and with a hearty shove, pitches the wolf into the water.

Removing wolf from combat, Geo may change his actions. Ēoswulf did not provoke an AoO as the wolf does not possess combat reflexes.

Filla attempts to return fire, but only manages to put another bolt into the river.

20 Ēoswulf
13 Geoclunicus
12 Filla
11 Dunbar
10 Maximos

8 Guards

Bold have actions.

Locally, it happens, along with some players bringing extra reroll products. Whether it's 100% kosher is unclear, but since it's generally done in the interest of helping a new player have a good time (by confirming a particularly cinematic crit, not dying, etc.), I don't think anyone's objected.

There's also a GM star reward boon (from the chronicles) that allows you to give someone your reroll, with your star bonus,

Ultimately, I'd say its reasonable to rule either way on it.

I've seen this done locally as well. Just remember one thing, only one reroll per person.

Sczarni

Just something to keep in mind with this build. You'll have trouble convincing GM's to let you use your snake style while raging.

While in rage, a barbarian cannot use any Charisma-, Dexterity-, or Intelligence-based skills (except Acrobatics, Fly, Intimidate, and Ride) or any ability that requires patience or concentration.

Related question: I am currently GMing a PbP game, and I hope to apply that to Character X. I assume that I can still play Character X in other games while that is going on, either F2F or PbP. Is that correct?

I have not had the time to fully go over the new guide to PFS. So unless there is something in there that states a planned GM credit locks a character I would say it would be ok. The general idea is that GM credits are ment to be flexable and "float" until the intended character is eligible to have the chronicle applied. This could be due to not meeting the level requirement or until they are finished with a game. Keep in mind this is just a general rule of thumb until something official comes out.

I have never seen an official ruling on this, but I have seen it come up many times. The general ruling from the PbP community and the frequent PbP GMs is that it is perfectly fine to hold GM credit and apply it to the charter once his current PbP scenario is complete. While it is technically a grey area that has not been officially addressed it is very common practice and has not to my knowledge been abused. I'll even admit to doing it myself a few times.

It depends. Can you make your studded leather out of alternate metals? I've never seen anyone do that (at least for PFS). If you can do that then it's vulnerable to rust. If you can't do that then you're fine and it's not rusted. It's either leather or metal. In this case I'd have to say it's leather.

But does it not count as metal armor when it comes to druids?

Sczarni *****

I would be interested if there was room on a core run.

Sczarni *****

I would talk to Pirate Rob as he is your local VC. I don't see him turning a deaf ear on what happened to your PFS records and he might be able to help work things out to get you a replacement for the GenCon boon. Sorry to hear that you had your stuff stolen and hopefully we can get those three characters back to playable soon. The one bit of good news is there should be an online record of all the games played.

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.

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.

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.
