It is also normally the job of the VL to eventually replace their VC? So they might be groomed into the position slowly so the transition is seamless. Or if the VC suddenly has to leave the job (voluntarily or involuntarily) then an VL can be ugraded pretty quickly.

This scenarios is probably the only time I felt poorly for Drendle Dreng. It only lasted a couple of seconds, but there was definite sadness for him.

Michael: We have a local player who had a Cleric. He decided to play Level 9 on Slow. First guy in Perth to do so. We all thought he was crazy (as resource burn is felt more accutely). It was about this time he started dying.

Remember all those movies where you have a team of characters, and suddenly something happens, one character freaks out and runs off? Well that was his Cleric who just kept fleeing and dying. Also casting a Bless spell at level 9 as a combat action? hmm...

So yeah, between Levels 9-10 like 2 deaths. Another at 10. I think he might barely be scraping retirement now, but nobody has seen that Cleric played in a long time.

We started to run High table 10-11s and be forced into bringing this Level 9 along to make up the legal table. He got super frustrated that he was being left behind..

It was at this point through an emotional and not logical response that I decided to NEVER play Slow. Ive never regretted it and currently have 3 characters sitting on the 10-11 zone.

I know one is Stephen White in Melbourne, Victoria.I can remember him telling me about this new game called Pathfinder Society way way way back during games of Living Greyhawk.

Liberty's Edge **

Actually PFS can become way less random than you think. After a while you will know all the players could can game with if you play PFS long enough in the one area. You might get some variation, but generally after a few months, you know who is going to do what and when.

Liberty's Edge **

Guys? Hey.. wacky thought here. Bare with me.

How about... NOT responding to the thread? Just dont respond for it or against it? THe original poster will get tired and move on to Yugioh or Magic. The original poster will never get what they are after.

JakBlitz: I think April 2016 might be a safer bet.. or at least Nov 2015.

Liberty's Edge **

How many of the original 13 are left?

Liberty's Edge **

Walter: GUNS you say? My 11 Gunslinger would LOVE to play that for retirement. Absolutely love it. In fact Im trying to think of a way it could happen (he only needs a single scenario to hit 33exp).

Liberty's Edge **

Slow Track at high levels has always seemed pretty crazypants to me.

Liberty's Edge **

Im going to play a Human Fighter. Havnt played one for years and now feels the time to do so.

Liberty's Edge **

Good point Mitch!.

Liberty's Edge **

Forum threads starting with 'Sell me on...' .

Ive always hated them because it implies people arnt capable of making a choice but I guess I will kinda miss them because Im so used to them.

Liberty's Edge **

Thanks. Ive picked Korada, as I went and read through Iomedaes Guide to Paladins again and Im definetly not doing a lot of stuff I should be doing.

As my character is from Mendev its still a strange choice as Korada reads very much like a Tien based God.

Liberty's Edge **

Thankyou all for the great responses!

Does anyone know much about this one:

Liberty's Edge **

and NG Gods are allowed to have Paladins?

Liberty's Edge **

I have a Paladin who is level 10 and the issue has been gnawing at me for a while.

Ive read the Paladins code/clerical code for Iomedae over and over again and every time I do, I think something else that I dont do quite right about the way I portray my Paladin vs how they should be.

My Paladin was part of the Worldwound Paladins who were charged with protecting the people of that area against the Demonic forces. However Roland was far kinder and more compassionate than most of his fellow Paladins.

He was sent to the Pathfinder Society to be a bridge of sorts between both groups. Of course now that 'theme' is over, hes had a bit of a crisis of faith. He seems the good the Pathfinder Society can do, but as a player Im not sure Iomedae is a good fit for him anymore. He dosnt seem to be as agressive as he should be for that Deity.

Can someone suggest a different God that he might move towards? I dont mind if its someone obscure (like an Empryeal Lord) just a valid choice for a more compassionate type of Paladin.

Thanks

Redward: Isnt that the whole point of testing the class out? I can always build a new one later.

Liberty's Edge **

Sorry, was typing my reply for a long time! and didnt even see your post.

Liberty's Edge **

Exguardi: Excellent, I wish you were a local player so I could discuss how my Phantom has been going. He just seems so.. bland at the moment. And my spell selection comes down to 4 level 1 spells.

I have managed to use the go through Walls thing a few times.. Thats been REALLY useful, but I often feel a little sad when I look at my spell choices. Am also Silver Crusade.

Liberty's Edge **

Its hard to believe these playtest document is actually more than a couple of months old now but it is.

I managed to get in just in time to get my Nagaji Spiritualist off the ground. He joined the Pathfinder Society because of his Spirit, which is the Spirit of a former Pathfinder Agent who died in battle (a barbarian).

However I havnt really heard all that much (or seen that much ) in here on people talking about their Occult classes in here in games. Locally Im the only person who is playing one of the playtest classes which makes it hard to talk to others about it.

Ive also noticed sadly that Ive yet to see any Scenarios with references to Psychic pheonmena or the like. No enemies either with any links to psychic activity.

I have managed to get to 3.2 from playing and dm credits. Ive had a lot of fun going between an angrier possessed character to a calmer solo Spiritualist.

How are other peoples Occult playtest classes going?

Liberty's Edge **

You cant just swap out the Cheetah for the Wyvern. Its the complete wrong tier. Even if you dont agree with it.

Liberty's Edge **

Dont worry, we often see way more Sorcs as the BBEG than Wizards so I dont expect it to be too much of an issue.

Liberty's Edge **

This is probably a thing we need to push to people more since the rise of core and ESP to new players. I think its been overlooked for probably too long .

People need to register their characters. Not that it would be nice if they did so, but that they have to.

Liberty's Edge **

My players also went looking for Mr Aspis man after he left.

I told my players they felt like they were being watched when they left the Praetor, but couldnt see anyone. I also included an Aspis Consortium Shopfront/? in town. The players left it alone but to me it seemed the logical thing.

Liberty's Edge

Sorry but the push for a GM to get a new star is hardly a reason to rush the IT guys at Paizo in a flurry to resolve this.

' Oh man, that reroll would of so worked if only the IT guys at Paizo had of fixed the reporting system. I should have 3 stars not 2!'.

Im not saying its not important.. but how does that phrase work:?

'First world problems?'

Liberty's Edge

Wow this topic is certainly different when it first started.

Im not even sure the first post WAS a question. It seemed more like musings of a person designed to promote a viewpoint in the respondents.

Liberty's Edge **

Can you multiclass 2 of them Occult Classes ie Spiritualist with Psychic or would you require two separate Chronicle sheets?

Liberty's Edge

While its frustrating, its hardly game breaking.. as the Chronicle sheet is the most important thing for people. The reporting online comes a distant second. Please take the time you need to fix this issue properly.

Liberty's Edge **

Just limit the table to 4 players. Problem solved.

If this is an ongoing thing, what do the other players on the table think? Surely there must be some of these carry over from game to game? Dont they voice their annoyance? 'Oh hell, those 2. Im gonna pull out, as they wont even make it 3/4 way through the game'.

I find it weird that they havnt said anything.

Liberty's Edge **

I have a Mists of Mwangi 5 player table signed up for 3 weeks time. Ill let you know how it does.

Liberty's Edge

The issue with Private vs Public companies is capital. When a company needs a large influx of money to either expand its focus or change tack, its normally always got to go public to draw in that capital. Kickstarter programs have at least for the rpg industry circumvented that financial practice.

Liberty's Edge **

What Im annoyed about is that I went all that way, got to play at Paizocon and rarely took any photos there apart from one or two. I really showed have written down the names of people I played with.

Liberty's Edge **

That is surprising.

Liberty's Edge

Im going to run this CORE only. Should be interesting and different.!

Liberty's Edge **

Michael: Then that is an issue with your character, it still does not debunk the fact that every character should have some oil or Alchemist fire. As we get told 'Explore, Report, Cooperate'. Without some of the basics the explore part is very iffy.

Liberty's Edge **

I think I had Walter as my DM for the Special at Paizocon in 2014. From what I remember, smaller frame guy who obviously works out and has tatts. I remember we were stuck in a corner.

From what I remember of the game

A) Someone died
B) I shot things a lot.
C) We fought a bonus Clockwork Dragon because.. we kicked the main guys ass too quickly? (memory starting to get funky on that)

Liberty's Edge **

Seems a bit crazy to snub any gaming convention.

Do you mean will some characters actually act like Pathfinders and buy anti swarm stuff AHEAD of time? Let us hope so!. Ive been in parties where Im the ONLY one with Alchemist fire and we come up against swarms and we have people critizing the scenario for including swarms.

Liberty's Edge **

How did Winter Fantasy go this year in regards to PFS?

I noticed several new AL Expeditions scenarios were debuted there.

Liberty's Edge **

For some reason Im looking forward to running a certain Locked in the Opera scenario from yore for a Core Table.

Liberty's Edge **

Also people must register first before you can report. I think this will lead to more people waiting a couple of weeks before reporting now.

Im actually trying something a little different here.

Ive attempted to build the same Glaive Wielding character in both Core PFS and 5th Editions Adventurers League, Gertrude Van Zorn, the Human reach based Fighter.

Ill let you know how it goes

Liberty's Edge **

To be honest, like the Fox above I am a little concerned that locally (where we only PFS on a every second week cycle) that our smallish player base will be further halved.

Our VC has indicated

A) That normal will continue to be the new releases scenarios
B) Core will exist of pretty old scenarios. (In fact a lot of Season 0s are going to see the light of day again. Im due to run a CORE mists of Mwangi soon

I have no issue with that.

My BIGGEST concern is with getting the information that a scenario is indeed a CORE or normal out to players. Its .. easier for groups that use a Warhorn type system where you can directly spell out what campaign standard you will be using... but for more.. laid back groups where communication isnt great Im sure you are going to have instances of people rocking up without X character for the right game.

Sure this will gradually decline , but you are always going to get those types that dont read the blurb properly and turn up with the wrong stuff.

How to rectify this? Communicate to your player base more and be VERY clear about what is running. Plan further ahead.

Liberty's Edge **

I do kinda feel like my choice of Technologist was a bit of a waste of time. Albeit is an out of left field choice for a Bones Oracle to take, but then again the character was frankly designed to be a bit of a strange one.

Liberty's Edge **

The GM really should of been more on the ball here.

Liberty's Edge **

Ive only come down once on a player that didnt have a Paper character sheet and that was only because his Ipad ran out of juice about an hour into the game. Nobody there had a charger and I wasnt willing to suspend the game for him to drive 40 minutes home to get his.

Jokingly before the game I had actually said 'That thing is fully charged right?, to which the response was 'Yeah' (obviously a lie).

So when it keeled over and stopped working, the guy had no Chronicle sheets or Character sheet. I asked him to leave the game as I had no pregens on me.

I personally use Herolab but always print out the Herolab character sheet. Always.

Liberty's Edge **

BigNorse: Basically all online reporting is done through our VC here and all games here are run and organised through the same VC. Thus all of our reporting sheets go through him. I seem to have a lot that have not been reported.

This in turn means that at least for my most recent games looking up when I ran them is impossible.
