I have read a few posts recently where Pathfinders are talking about what is considered PVP and what is not. I have started this separate thread to ask how you interpret the rules and to demonstrate the variety of GM rulings.
Here are what I believe to be the most relevant sections of the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized play:
No Player-versus-Player CombatThe goal of Pathfinder Society Organized Play is to provide an enjoyable experience for as many players as possible. Player-versus-player conflict only sours a session. While killing another character might seem like fun to you, it certainly won’t be for the other character’s player. Even if you feel that killing another PC is in character for your PC at this particular moment, just figure out some otherway for your character to express herself. In short, you can never voluntarily use your character to kill another character—ever. Note that this does not apply to situations where your character is mind-controlled by an NPC and is forced by that NPC to attack a fellow Pathfinder.
The Core AssumptionThe leadership of this organized play community assumes that you will use common sense in your interpretation of the rules. This includes being courteous and encouraging a mutual interest in playing, not engaging in endless rules discussions. While you are enjoying the game, be considerate of the others at the table and don’t let your actions keep them from having a good time too. In short, don’t be a jerk.
How does your GM interpret these rules?
