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.
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.

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.
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
Eugene gets an AoO as it flies past. Everyone is back up.
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.
"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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Yellow vs Tuich: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 2 = 13
Green vs Vyk: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 2 = 22
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.
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 :::::::::::
Miko gets a move or a standard in the Surprise round. Vincent you get regular actions in the first round of combat.
