I'm rebuilding my 'Konfirmation Kit" )Confirmation/Silverhex and maybe MotFF. I plan to have the core and UC Pregens in it, maybe the APG ones if we ever get them. I even have a laminator. (going to test it on my Bonekeep II maps I printed.) Staying away from the ACG pregens though. And the OA Pregens.
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.
While right now the Exchange is the most 'bi-polar' of the factions, might I suggest then having two goals that are 'mutually exclusive'?
I mean have a Sczarni style goal (smuggle something somewhere) and a Qadria style goal (establish X route somewhere) (note, both are examples off the top of my head) Since getting all the GM boxes counts as two goals, having a 5+Sczarni and a 5+Quadria (meaning 6 total) still gives you 7+ with the two GM boxes.
If you could then put a 9 goal reward "uniting the factions" for those rare folks who get both... :-)
Ok, this came up in discussion with a fellow Pathfinder player.
I have certain characters that I want to play certain scenarios, not because of boon picking, but because of location. My Jadwiga half elf bard, for example has a GM credit for Shades of Ice I, and has played II and III, as well as From Under Ice because they're all set in or around Irrisen.
Likewise, I asked for someone to run Midnight Mauler since I have an Ustalav psychic detective in tier. Is it wrong of me to play characters that regionally 'gel' with the scenario?
Right now my only two exchange characters are my former Sczarni archaeologist and my Ustulav investigator. The later is Sczarni by birth. Unfortunately no trait gives Dr 1/silver so I can tie him more directly to the family. I will admit the main reason I made him Exchange is to save money on the ring of evasion I want him to have.
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?"
Later on the placing of the defensive constructs.
Still later, in dealing with the guy at the Golemworks.
"Sir, d'ya have a family? Wife to go home to?"
Still later in having seeing the chairs design...
And still later, after something gets in melee with my bow wielding dwarf...
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."
Amusingly the Warlock does everything I want out of the Unchained Scoundrel, except evasion, and has that pesky dual identity thing (which gets even weirder with the warlock, since the spells aren't vigilante talents)
And you can, in theory slashing grace the melee spell bolt too, I think. In fact, since spells are an option, it's not like the unchained scoundrel is going to be as ready to do TWF dex to damage.
Unchain the Scoundrel!
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/
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.
More specifically, how the abilities are partitioned.
Obviously Paraduke William, loyal neutral citizen of Cheliax can't be seen channeling the blessings of Milani, as does the Steel Rose, Zealot.
But why can't Lord Oblivious, of Taldor, be a dabbler in the arcane arts and not be connected to Baron Strange the mysterious warlock avenger of the bearless?
*chuckle* Thanks. Either he or my were-Chihuahua will be my next martial character. Afraid I'm hooked on skill monkeys. :-)

I would do it with profession soldier, actually. Or knowledge local. ("These seem like local boys, have I heard anything about their fighting skill?"
Well knowledge (local) can allow you to identify members of organizations. My "Elliot Spencer" knock off brawler is going to keep knowledge (local) (and cooking!) maxed just for the concept.
"They're aspis agents."
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 :-(
I do find it interesting that Daisy is the one going off the deep end considering her past as a hacktivist complaining about government secrets and abuses. She has become almost exactly what she once feared.
I'm expecting some aspect of Crimson tide to give her the what the hell, hero speech myself One of her old partners holding up a mirror
Huh, all the times I read it I thought it covered the entire spell. Thanks for the catch
If it's a certain season 4 scenario, don't forget atonement doesn't work on outsiders
I like to take a G mini when I GM, just to worry the players.
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.

I've threatened our local group with a Falcata wielding kirtsune swashbuckler, who raised as a taldan orphan knows nothing about being a kitsune. When he adopts his (un)natural form he's not taking on his fox shape. Rather he's embracing his true nature...
... as a were Chihuahua. :-)

*sigh* Ok I'm not being clear...
Fluff on blended vision refers to half drow parent
Precedent exists, per provided link, to refluff something (you can have the rice runner trait, even if you grew up in Irrisen, for example)
Thus blended vision could be allowed if 'drow parent' were waived. (as is, gnomes and drow can breed with each other?)
As I'm hiding in your closet stated, there need to be more options for multitalented.

Never said it was. I said there was precedent to 'refluff' something.
Not really. Thanks to Nefreet's list o'links, we do have precedent of having traits reskinned So having tiefling/aasimar/other planetouched/orc somewhere in the past fluffed is just fine.
