OK thanks!

Hello all.

Just wondering when the new specials (Kobolds and Aspis) will be available for 4 and 5 star GMs to download?

Thanks.

I went to Paizocon last year (2014) and I recieved a chronicle that allowed me to select a trait from Mummy's Mask AP. Knowing that we are limited to the guide, web traits doc thing..., and chronicle sheets. My question is this; is that a valid chronicle for selecting traitrs? I haven't played core yet and will be doing so next week for the first time.

I believe so, as long as it is not a race boon you should be good.

Isn't this thread the same issue: with out the "interleaving" title?

Not quite.

The issue the previous thread was about:
GM: "I'll roll a d20 for all the vampires' initiatives. Natural 20. The vampire all go before you and hit you all with fireballs and you're dead."
Player: "Not fair! They should have all rolled initiative separately and if they wanted to act together they should have delayed until the lowest roll!"
GM: "That would be slow and fiddly. Although I guess in this case you have a point."

The issue this thread is about:
GM: "I move this rogue, then I move this rogue, then both rogues attack, so they both get flanking and sneak damage."
Player: "Not fair! I can't do that! I have to take my entire turn in one go!"
GM: "You could if you readied an action."

There is some overlap between the issues, so the subjects have got interleaved.

Thanks Matt.

Greetings,

My son and I want to start co-GMing a PFS adventure for a few family members and I was looking for something similar to an Emerald Spire dungeon crawl which would be a good introduction to the new players on how basic gameplay functions, and also streamlined for my 10 year old son who wants to try GMing.

Specifically, looking for a series of play sessions where each character would receive 3 XP (full level) for each completed scenario. I have been tipped off to Thornkeep, but was wondering if there are additional ones out there to look into which are PFS sanctioned.

Maybe try Dragon's Demand.

* This race was once a Common Restricted race before becoming Always Available. As a result, there are leftover Chronicle sheets unlocking these races; however some other boons make use of these “useless” race boons.

Restricted: A race that is restricted is unavailable for play in the campaign unless a player has a special Chronicle sheet that allows her to play a PC of that race.

Common: This race boon is fairly common in the community thanks to its having been in circulation for an extended period of time and fairly accessible. Many of the races unlocked as a result of GMing at conventions fall into this category.

Uncommon: This race boon is not very common, probably because it was only in circulation for a brief window, was tied to a particular event (such as Gen Con), or just hearkens back to the earlier years of the campaign.

Very Rare: There are probably 50 or fewer of these race boons that have ever been distributed, and many of them are already in use. Goblins were distributed only as a special reward for a one-time, competitive event in 2012. Fetchlings were distributed only as a reward for the highest...

There is one Unique Orc boon from the Charity Auction last year.

Friend of mine has it.

Thanks.

Any time I get that response, I just look at the speaker incredulously and ask "do your characters never TALK to each other?"

Or read Pathfinder Chronicles of the exploits of other Pathfinders?

Any idea yet on how many 1-5s will be made this Season?

I'm trying to finalize a play schedule to get one character thru the entire Season.

Last year I received a lot of feedback reporting that there were not enough scenarios playable by level 1 characters, so I adjusted the Season 6 schedule to provide virtually one a month. With the very low possibility that I might adjust the planned June scenarios in the next several weeks, Season 6 is scheduled to include 10 Tier 1–5 scenarios plus one Tier 1–2 scenario.

Any word?

Can anyone GM the Eyes of the Ten series? Or is it considered an exclusive only run by 4-star GM's and VO's? I'm a 2-star GM myself and was thinking of running this at some point.

One of my VO's said something about "you have to play it first, before you're allowed to run it". But I couldn't find anything like that in the PFS organized play guidelines or anything in the module summary that says that.

Thanks.

YIDM

You could technically run it first, but when it came to you time to play it you would have MAJOR spoilers to deal with and would have to let the GM running it for you know that you had GM'd it before.

I think making it a phrenic amplification would be a really good idea. However, that may require an additional spell keyword.

That would be a good idea, maybe 1 pt per round of extension?

Just a thought on the Psychic Defensive Spells (i.e. Thought Shield, Tower of Iron Will, Intellect Fortress, and Mental Barrier) instead of the duration for these just being 1 round, has there been any thought to it being changed to 1 round + concentration?

I think this might make these spells more flavorful and more likely to be taken.

You are stuck with what you have. You can't go back to the box unless you don't have enough cards.

Also, you have to choose B with the basic trait.

Welcome to PACG and good luck on your adventure.

Ok thanks.

Let say I get a weapon 1 as a reward. I then replace with one of the B weapons on my deck. The B weapon I replaced it with goes back in the box and that is it.

Nate

Grand Lodge

Ok so I know I need to use the B cards from my initial deck building.

My question is after each adventure (other than my new "1" rewards I might have gotten) can I change out the other B cards for different ones or am I "stuck" with what I chose the first time around?

Hope this makes sense.

I wonder are there many more people who have perhaps 5 scenarios left they can get credit for by playing.

Hey Natertot, How are you?

I had an interesting situation a couple of years ago.... we were facing some enemies who were charging us along a large curving passage way carved out of a cliff wall behind a water fall.
My Magus cast Sleet Storm. This made things very slippery and impossible to see. My character took his GOZ mask and gave it to our rogue archer, and suggested she put it on. Once she had the GOZ mask on, she could see where all the enemies were, slipping falling, and crawling towards us, So she began shooting at them. The GM denied them their Dex bonus because they couldn't see where the arrows were coming from through the sleet storm.....did I mention our archer character was a rogue? She made short work of our approaching enemies.

So the Darkness / Obscuring mist thing can work.

Hello Elyas,

Doing well.

As to the whole Darkness/Obscuring mist thing, I think it is a potential strategy if your group all knows about it before hand and if it is used sparingly.

Probably best to be reserved for when you feel you are all in the deep doodoo and can't get out any other way.

There's a bug in event setup that won't let you create an event with only season 6 scenarios (which includes 5-99, but not 6-00. Odd).

A workaround is to create the event with, say, 5-08 (The confirmation), then when you are reporting the event choose 5-99 as the scenario to be reported.

Still have this bug, I will try you solution for reporting purposes, hopefully it will work.

One of the new spells from the Technology Guide is "Technomancy", basically detect technology. It allows the caster to make a Know:Engineering roll on Robots without having to have the Technologist Feat. While not much, it is better than nothing.

A scroll of that (with detailed explanation in the scenario) would be useful in some of these scenarios.

Oh, that's perfect.

What level is the spell? If it's 1st level, what a handy, 2-prestige wand to have.

It is a first level wizard/bard spell.

Don't forget the Gamma World Cross Over rules in the Advanced D&D Dungeon Masters (1st edition) Guide.

Where those the ones that gave Gamma World Characters no Magic Resistance (not 0% magic resistance but no magic resistance which meant no saves) and D&D characters no Radiation Resistance? It changed the phrase "Save or Die," to simply "Die."

TB,

Something like that, I would have to pull out the book to look, which I don't have with me.

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.
