The scenario is currently available for general purchase by anyone. Mike had mentioned in the product forum that they decided to open this faction changing special to any location with a single table requirement to run.

EDIT: Link to post

Thanks Snig, just tried to add it to a possible game night I was running and it would not come up as a possibility after I tried checking it.

It is my pleasure in announcing a new 5 Star Gm to the fold. Venture-Lieutenant Billy Darios of Flushings, NY has joined the this illustrious group. It was my pleasure watching him run his table at ConnectiCon 2014 for the star and I was amazed with his work, and how well he interacted with his table. Congratulations Billy!

Congrats Billy!

In the New York/New Jersey area I know of the following (there have probably been more):

  • Eyes of the Ten (all four scenarios): 3 tables
  • The Ruby Phoenix Tournament (10-12): 2 tables
  • Academy of Secrets (12-14): 1 table
  • Tomb of the Iron Medusa (13-15): 1 table

    I was involved in one way or another with each of these tables.

    We were one of the first (if not the first) to report the first tables of parts 1 to 3 of Eyes of the Ten. We played them at local cons as they came out. I believe Atlanta beat us to be the first to report part four.

    Hello Matthew,

    Saw your post on the PFS Manhattan Google Group, I am sure Helen (coordinator of the group) will be willing to have something run for you on the Wednesday Night. We play at a Cafe in mid-town Manhattan.

    I would be willing to run something for you too during your time period here, preferably on Tuesday night.

    Does this mean no single character can benefit from the same boon? Or does it mean that you can never have both boons on any of your characters?

    The Paladin is, as far as I know, a healer. We've only just asked him, though, so we're not 100% sure. It is darn hard to find a lvl 12 cleric so far, but we're taking it slow and putting the party together first. Our main concern right now is certainly to find someone who can help us stay up, but if a death happens, we have a good amount of PP and gold stored, so I'm hoping it'll be temporary. Definitely not rushing in headlong. The Wizard is very knowledgeable, I ran through Thornkeep with his player.

    Hello all,

    In the Ring of Elemental Command entry it states that:

    "Each appears to be nothing more than a lesser magic ring until fully activated (by meeting a special condition, such as single-handedly slaying an elemental of the appropriate type or exposure to a sacred material of the appropriate element), but each has certain other powers as well as the following common properties."

    It then lists the "other powers" (specifically - the protection and command ability of elementals, the attack and saving throw penalties/bonuses and DR bypass, being able to converse with elementals).

    My clarification is does one get access to the "other powers" when the ring is dormant as well as the single listed spell or not?

    Let me know what you all think.

    Thanks!

    One of the most important things in Bonekeep is do you know/trust the players you are playing with and do you work well as a team.

    If you just get placed at a table with a bunch of people you don't know it is at best a crap shoot.

    The walk is not that bad if you don't have more than one bag and the weather is not too bad (snow/rain/cold).

    There are taxis you can get at the train station and it should only run you about $5.00. Make sure you ask and agree, before you get into the cab.

    The trouble with the Silver Crusade is that in older scenarios you play Andoran, and they like to send you off to kill people with no explanation.

    I think this is overstated a little, I played an Andoran through to Seeker level, and only had one murder mission, I may have doged a few, but I'm not sure there are that many.

    I agree FB, there are maybe 3 or so missions that actually ask you to bring to justice or off slavers or enemies of Andoran.

    Soon I will be going to Gencon. I have a rather crucial resource from Rise of the Runelords, and all I own is the Collector's edition. It's not so hard to see that this will turn out to be a weighty proposition, even forgetting the rest of the resources for this character, and requiring me to bring my collector's edition which will take up most of a suitcase seems to be rather much. On the other hand, if I bring the character, and someone does an audit of it, I have an illegal character, if I don't bring it.

    Just because something is common in your area does not mean it is common across PFS tables as a whole.
    While that is true, when i have said there are tons of gunslingers out there no one has stood up and said not in my area. That is one of the reasons i brought it up that way, to see if it was only my area. No one said otherwise, or even suggested otherwise until now, so i am thinking its very much the common state of affairs. When you think about it, logic would follow that being true because range touch is simply better than trying to hit normal AC. It simulates history pretty well, I have to give it that, guns replaced bows... that happened. For that not to happen in a fantasy games bows have to retain some advantage that compensates for the dramatic advantage that is range touch. Right now bows dont really have anything that counterbalance the range touch uber advantage, hopefully adding the alchemical arrows will fix that, or at least level it out. It will certainly make it more fun :-)

    In the NY/NJ area there are a few gunslinger characters. Some of them are multi-classed, but I don't think they make up more than their fair share of the representative sample of character types out there.

    Care Baird,

    you know, I thought so too....that my friend Natertot would be crunchably munchable.

    Years ago, when I lived in NYC, Natertot and I were part of the same gaming group that my roommate ran. There was a change of leadership, and I ended up running the group....but that is another story.

    I found a 1 on 1 adventure I thought would be an interesting challenge for my friend. Some of you may know Jacob's Well in Dragon Magazine #43 September 1993. I ran Natertot through Jacob's well. He was relentless, methodical and didn't make a single mistake.....He nipped the problem in the bud. I think we only played for around 30 minutes. I was expecting the adventure to last a good 4 hours or so. Best laid DM plans and all that. I doubt Natertot remembers that adventure.

    Anyways if you are playing along side of Natertot, GMing Natertot, or at a table Natertot is GMing, he is a fun player to have at the table,

    (So, for example, we're putting together a sheet of 10 common feats for warriors, 10 common feats for rogues, etc. Also, a sheet of 12 good spell choices for 1st-level wizards /sorcerers.)

    So we want to provide a short list of the 8 or so most common deities in Pathfinder Society. Sarenrae, Cayden Cailean, Gorum, ...

    Thanks for the update.

    Please, to what "specials" are you referring from last year and this year?

    Next question, you mentioned Modules and AP volumes Tier 12 and above; are there any Scenarios currently, or planned for publication, for Tier 12 and above? (in addition to "Eyes of Ten")

    Further, how common are Tier 12+ Society events at large conventions, specifically PaizoCon? (Please exclude GenCon.)

    Browsing, I noticed there were no Tier 12+ events at PaizoCon 2013. Is the demand for higher Tier events growing enough for Paizo to be able to include them at the larger Cons starting year?

    W.E.

    The two specials that have or will have a 12+ option are:

    Year 4 - Race for the Rune Carved Key
    Year 5 - Seige of Diamond City

    Both were run/will be run at Gen Con and Paizo Con their respective years. I believe they were also available and some major cons thereafter as well.

    I believe Mark hinted that there might be a new 12th level arc starting in the next year or so. If and when that happens they would also phase out eyes of the ten.

    From what evidence I see on the boards and in my area, I believe there will be more demand for higher level play since the more "hard-core" players have 1 or more characters in the 12+ catergory.

    Thanks, Nathan! I figured that's what I should do.

    I guess my hesitance has been regarding whether to keep agile breastplate as my character's armor. I like its benefits, but somehow it doesn't feel all that "paladiny".

    Maybe the decision should be based on my character's personal preferences (withstanding damage in combat, which is more frequent vs. risking death due to drowning or falling, which has happened but not as frequently).

    Also, all these purchasing decisions seem so final. I wait and save up funds to buy certain items, then consider selling them and switching to something else, which seems like a waste of gold.

    Am I over-thinking this?

    Take a search on the boards there are various guides that will help you in figuring out what you might want to buy.

    Character = 4th level paladin of Sarenrae. Already has a magic sword.

    Should he buy magic armor next? And if so, should he keep agile breastplate or switch to something else? (A note about this: After struggling with some climb and jump checks that left him floundering in the ocean, he switched to agile breastplate armor. He'll never be the guy who volunteers to scale the walls or perform death-defying feats of agility, but I like that he's at least in a little better situation to succeed with his current armor.)

    I don't have my character sheet in front of me, so I don't know exactly how much gold he has to spend. But in general, is magic armor the next step for his equipment?

    Thanks!

    Yes for a fighting type Armor is ussually the next item to get. Make sure you have some kind of missle weapon to. Make sure you get masterwork whatever it is so it can be upgraded to Magic later if you can't afford it now.

    You could always keep the agile breast plate but you might want to get some heavy armor then use which ever you think is most appropriate for the given adventure.
