Aren't the Sczarni honestly a better fit with the Consortium rather then the Society?

This is actually one of the things that makes me sad about the current season.

Just as Year of the Demon is kind of "year of the silver crusade" Year of the serpent just screams "year of the Exchange." I was hoping for scenarios that involved the attacking of Aspis interests in overt ways "Oh, that buyer? I'm afraid he was outbid." and more covert ways, "Your guards? I fear they had family issues. Now let me make an offer you can't refuse." Heck, I'd like to see some scenarios that steer the factions. Sczarni seems the most bipolar, but Liberty's Edge could be as well.

Playing Golemworks incident.

Kodiak Asama, Dwarven Marriage counselor. (Inquisitor of Erastil, with his owlbear companion, Mr. Beaky.)

Starting with the Mission Briefing "Any Questions?"

"Yeah. How are you and the Mister gettin' along?"
"What?"
"Still stoking the fires of love together? Still in marital bliss?"
"I don't see it's any-"
"'Cause I don't see Mr. Heidmarch around. If'n yur havin' any problems. Please remember that Erastil wants to see couples happy, and Mr. Beaky and I are more than willing to set ye down ifn ya need t'talk."

Later on the placing of the defensive constructs.
"I think we should place two of 'em in the master bedroom."
"Why?"
"Well to set the mood! Just imagine the Heidmarchs making sweet sweet marital bliss under t'approvin stare of a pair of angels."
"No."
"W'the fire lights of the halos providing romantic shadows-"
"We ARE NOT putting the golems in their bedroom!"

Still later, in dealing with the guy at the Golemworks.

"Sir, d'ya have a family? Wife to go home to?"
"no, I am married to my job."
"So y'see these little golemthings like kids?"

Still later in having seeing the chairs design...
"Well folks, looks like Black is a follower of Zon Kuthon or Calistra. He likes 'em kinky."

And still later, after something gets in melee with my bow wielding dwarf...
I hit it with the cestus. (with bane) do a lot of damage. "Erastil's Punch!"

I missed one, tumbled to avoid an AOO, knowing I was going to fail. Get hit with the axe, lose lots of HP. I should have said after that didn't work. "Parkour."

Honestly, if the concern was "Getting dex damage on both weapons" The fix would simply be "You do not get this bonus when using two weapon fighting, flurry, or any method that allows an off hand attack."

Thus your Florentine swashbuckler can take his normal attacks with rapier/main gauche with dex to damage, or go crit fishing with full twf. Your Rolandero duelist can fight with a bigger shield, or your poor low level human adventurer can fight in the dark with a torch in one hand, and his dex to damage weapon in the other.

Sealed gate spoilers/

Spoiler:
I don't know what the optional encounter was but due to the dominated paladin, the final was a cakewalk.

GM smiles as we face off against a clearly dominated paladin. I look down at my sheets and start laughing.

GM What?
Me: You know? I've never gotten to use this spell. Had it since 4th level and never used it.
GM: What spell?

I'd argue that the rules changed with the potion sponge, as the CRB has a section on underwater combat that lists all sorts of changes and drinking a potion isn't one of them.

i.e. "Please show me where being under water means I can't use a potion, or let me get my 1d8+1 HP back."

Indeed, in CORE there is no potion sponge...

The feat that irks me is 'Swipe and Stash' Planting items has always been a hallmark of the confidence man, but now you need a feat to do it.

Well unless you're doing street performances, then apparently you still can :-(

Two comments on the general thread.

1) Potions and underwater. Prior to the potion sponge, where was the rule you *couldn't* drink potions underwater?

2) Isn't it a rule that the GM controls the companions? Seems that nips the 'tactical genius' bit in the bud.

I like to take a G mini when I GM, just to worry the players.

PFS stories:
I ran a certain 1-5 where a Glabrezu can make an appearance. Being the joker I am, I had all the minis, including the Glabrezu, and just for giggles, I had my Rune Giant.

Well circumstances change so the Glabrezu reveals itself. I gleefully plop the mini on the table. One of the players quietly asked, "Can we fight the rune giant instead?"

I'm not sold on the spawn mini. I'm not a big lovecraftian horror kind of guy. But the dragon looks nice.

For an 'iconic' villian, I think Doctor Psycho is a good 'anti-Wonder Woman' She's physically strong, he's physically weak. She's about freedom and love, he's about hatred and subjugation. Indeed, if Diana is about redemption, he makes a perfect recurring villian as he 'breaks' those she fixes.

At work so I can't add much, but the comparison to the dervish dancer made me think of the 'other' greedy bard.

The Archaeologist.

Luck is (situationally) more powerful than bardic performance. especially if you burn the feat and trait combo. While delayed, the Archaeologist gets trapfinding, evasion, and some rogue talents. (5 over 20 levels)

He also gets better saves.

Time to unchain the Eldritch scoundrel.

Fun fact: I ran that scenario at a convention with a 13 year old at the table...there were a lot of air quotes and winking. "And back there is her...um...'interrogation room'--yeah, let's go with that..."

My only concern is that while reasonable GMs know to tone down that kind of content, not all players will be mature enough or reasonable enough to do the same. I don't think that I would disallow "tonable" content because of that, but it is a concern.

I had a 10 YO at my table. "This is Zarta's bedroom. It is full of things we won't talk about. And a bed."

Having played a winter witch in PFS and currently playing a snowcaster half elf/jadwiga with the intent of playing every scenario in Irrisen/other northern lands here are my two c-bills.

Why is there a winter witch/Jadwiga in book 1?:
Could be a number of reasons.
  • Looking for power to prepare for the regime change (the Elvanna Jadwiga have been 'on top' for 100 years, but will now have to deal with a new house).
  • Looking for power to accelerate Regime change. "Oh Anastasia's the new queen, but has no heirs yet?" *shank* Like the above, it doesn't even need to be the PC's
  • Slumming in the 'barbarian lands'. This was Ksenia's motivation for joining the Society. She was like the High School kid backpacking through Europe/Amish kid on Rumshpringa. Out seeing the world before returning home. Which can lead to all sorts of fun RP opportunities. Locally famous line from our local PFS.
    Outranged PC: "Do you know what the name Jeggare means?"
    Ksenia: "Is it Chelaxian for 'peasant?'"
  • Kicked out for being too 'nice' The motivation for my half elf bard. Booted from Whitethrone by a caring cousin (see Ksenia, above) for being 'too nice' and sent south before meeting a horrid end.
  • if anyone wants, I can post my thoughts on book 2 and beyond.

    Hux's attitude toward Ren was very similar to Grand Moff Tarkin's toward Vader in ANH. Except Tarkin knew where to draw the line.

    Bit of snippage.

    I think one thing the Clone Wars did well was that Whineykin and Tarkin knew each other, respected each other and appreciated the others methods. I'd assume Vader carried that friendship(?) forward into ANH, and if anyone knew Vader = Whineykin it likely would be Tarkin who figured it out.

    (aside, Clone wars does give us the headache of a non-whiney but still issue laden Anniken, then his personality seems to degrade in RotS as a result. *sigh*)

    countchocula has it.

    Sovereign court has a flavor in the 'illuminati, making a new nobility' theme. Given the (glacial!) movement in Taldor hinted at in *redacted* about the succession, there's a WONDERFUL opportunity to give SC a storyline of epic (if not Mythic) proportions.

    The Exchange should be front and center in Season 7. I mean the Aspis vs Exchange is basically "It belongs in a museum!" boiled down. Economic warfare, sabotage, cornering markets etc. "Let the Edgers and Crusaders smite the evil slavers in the consortium. We'll make a killing buying up their interests at fire sale prices, and recovering trinkets and [strike]selling[/strike] returning them to noble families for the Court and increasing the prestige of the Lodge!"

    Also the *hows* of economic warfare would help steer the faction. Do we fght with paperwork and legal maneuvering in the Quadera way? Or do we take a more "Family oriented approach." Heck a scenario set in Ustalav where it's economic influcence vs Sczarni werewolves would be a good scenario and maybe follow up on Midnight Mauler

    (Decided to start a new thread to avoid the clogging of the updates thread as was suggested)
    Long rant incoming…
    I’m very disappointed by the latest updates from the Additional Resources. Many things were banned, apparently with no rhyme or reason I can see. I’m going to go over the ones that I read and stuck out in my mind.

    Races of the Inner Sea:

  • Eclipse Strike: I don’t see why, with all the dirty tricks that do the same thing? Especially with Tieflings getting rarer.
  • True Breed: Sad to see that a ‘must be first level’ feat is added. I mean yes, you can take the three feats that allow you to do this from other books, but it’s not like we’ve not seen a feat that bypasses other feats making them ‘better’ (Hi Dirty Fighting!) This is why my Arcanist has been sitting at first level, FWIW.
  • Elven Arrogance: I could see this in the ‘disruptive table’ attitude, but really the character will be so hosed if they don’t spend a skill point on linguistics and take Taldane that I don’t worry much about it.
  • Disciplined Body: Really? A once a day stat switch is banned?
  • Weapon Training: Because a +1 to damage is so unbalancing (Axe to grind, blade of the society, havoc of the society, dirty fighter, vengeful..) or because it shares a name with another class ability *coughSKALDcough*
  • Weathered Patience: Because if you ready an action, once a day getting a bonus to be the big damn hero might ruin the game
  • Innovative: Because we can’t have missionaries and diplomancers?
  • Isolated: See Elven Arrogance, above. The worth of the trait is a different topic.
  • Tribalistic: Umm, I don’t see any reason for this to be banned, unless a) someone worried about an all Kellid party or b) someone worried about a group of Tribalistic humans, Isolated Oreads and Arrogant elves walking into a scenario (hey, makes for a quick 0xp 0gp 0pp sheet for me as GM)
    (Positive, glad to see the nipped ‘obsessed with success vs day job argument in the bud)
    (Aside, might want to add ‘blood of X’ to the phrasing “The racial heritages section from page 236–254 is a legal resource when qualifying to play a character of a different race, much as if the player owned a copy of the corresponding Bestiary or Advanced Race Guide.”)

    Blood of the moon

  • Completely off topic, but I think you *should* be able to choose the “If you associate with” feats if you have a Prince of Wolves chronicle sheet, but that’s just me 

    Dirty Tactics Toolbox

  • Wasp Familiar: Um, why? It’s not like we don’t have religion specific traits, fighting styles and deity specific feats. (Iomedean Sword Oath, Pantheistic Blessing) Or that it’s better than the ‘three feats to a familiar’ trick (Oh, hi Dirty Fighting that allows me to qualify for all sorts of stuff I’d need stats and other feats to get normally. And I can trade out a +2 to not essentially pull all the improved combat maneuvers out of my hat when I’m flanking?) I mean this is campaign setting specific, and very flavourful. And this is coming from the guy whose bard has a 100 gp ‘tramp stamp’ holy symbol tattoo of Calistra. Not for mechanical advantage, but because it’s flavourful.
  • Alchemical Pheromones: See Calistra, follower of.

    Heroes of the Streets

  • Illustrious Urbanite: Because we can’t have that +4 bonus on day job checks. I mean you’d need to be an arcane caster to get a +5 or an Alchemist or a bard with a 6pp vanity to do things like that. No, Dwarves just need to hit things harder.
  • Eldritch Archer: A ranged magus that works? Can’t have that.
  • Cunning Caster: Because Pathfinders are murder hobos, so they can’t subtly do anything.
  • Guild Emissary: Hey, heaven forbid those exchange characters actually belong to a guild and have another way to do the gather information. I mean a feat that replaces another that’s unheard o- oh, hello Dirty Fighting.
  • Subtle devices: See Cunning Caster, above.
  • Underworld connections: See Guild Emissary above.
  • Cat Burglar’s kit: I’m guessing that it’s because of the Masterwork Backpack. I mean we can’t just change things as they’re written. Oh, hi true breed feat. Have we met?
  • Diminishing sash: Because 2500 in components for 5000 gp is unbalancing, I guess. Or 100 GP for a +1 Caster level is game breaking (hides his alchemical components)
  • Eerie disappearance: No, you can’t be Batman.
  • Coin Shot: No idea why. Is throwing gold at the target only for gunslingers?
  • Ears of the city: Hey, it’s a way to make those annoying gather information checks. We can’t have that!
  • Secret Coffer: Why yes, it can be unbalancing to have a tiny space where things can’t be detec- oh I can buy a pathfinder pouch that does the same thing, is twice the size, and doesn’t have a chance of spilling my stuff into the ether? For only twice the price?
  • Wiscrani ear: Because taking 10 is so game breaking. I’d better hide my bards.

    Aside: I’m sad to see we still can’t use the fixed version of the scorpion whip. And that blood transcription is still illegal.

    To sum up, I’m very disappointed in the lack of rhyme or reason seeming in these decisions. Some things were banned that were flavorful (Tribalistic, Illustrious Urbanite) Campaign setting friendly (Wasp Familiar) or just plain useful (ears of the city). I do think the ban hammer was used too liberally on these recent additions, and needs to be revisited.

    I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with DM Blake here. "Good characters" adventure with "evil characters" all the time in fiction. Most obvious example to me is Michael Carpenter working with Thomas Raith in Grave Peril (after that, not so much) Charity working with Thomas and (indirectly) Maeve in Proven Guilty, and let's not forget Michael being involved in a heist in Skin Game. Not to mention some of the deals Harry himself has cut.

    Lesser examples would include Snow working with Regina and Mr. Gold a lot in Once Upon a Time for a greater good. Spidey working with Sandman or Black Cat, or any hero working with Scott Summers for example.

    Now all of those examples had lines they'd not let their 'allies' cross. Michael wouldn't have let Thomas 'snack' on an innocent, nor would Snow let Regina kill peasants for a spell. That's the line the Paladin has to walk, to let evil fight evil, and show a better way by eample. Smiting the baddie when he is fighting a bigger baddie, no. Smiting when he is kicking puppies and not fighting evil? yes.
