Arcane Dabbler is for those that want to pick up a smidge of spellcasting on a relatively low investment, so think arcane paladin or ranger but without having to play a bloodrager.

Not quite sure how to say this without coming across as mean, but let me try.
When we find non-monetary loot (ie. not coins, gems) if someone can use it and wants them it is theirs. The rest we sell. Then we split the proceeds from the sale and the monetary loot equally among everyone.
This is the way we do it in my home game, both as player and GM. In the long run it all works out because, 1) my players trust me when I am GM, and 2) I trust the GM when I am a player.
Otherwise the book keeping gets to be a real pain, and we have also found that, as a group we tend to be underpowered.

edit: So what I am saying is let Elektra have the scrolls, wand and ranseur, and let's not worry about "equal" shares.

You say CANCEL in the subject line which means that if/when you restart them you do not get back product and free pdfs.
However you say SUSPEND in your text, which means in a month or so you will be charged for all the back product in your subscription lines and get it and the free pdfs.
I am sure that Customer service wants to know exactly which option: CANCEL or SUSPEND you are asking for.
Well, that stunk !!
My guys made a deal with the Drow Cleric. Agreed to give her the Shard for 24 hours, but she had to stay where the dragon died, then give it back to them. She said ok, and off they want, dragon hunting.
Got to the lair, and they were loosing, so she cast Destruction on the dragon. Rolled a &*%&*^*(&^* 1 for it's save. Dead Dragon...
She took the shard, moved over to the side and was about to complete the ritual, when the Dwarven Bard pulled out the Luck Blade they got from freeing the Fire Giant Smith in the last chapter and wished the PCs and all the Shards only back to Sheila's house.
Oh, was I going to so screw them over with a vampire drow cleric....
Now I have to figure out how she is going to get even and how long it will take for her to catch up. One of her hunt mistress heard the wish, so they know where they are.
ps. The player of the bard, told me that it was my sons fault for getting him interested in all the Drizzt books and the deviousness of Drow, so he was not taking any chances.

You seem to know what you are talking about, but I do not believe the rest of us do. Please explain, in detail, and use simple words. Do not assume any knowledge on our parts as to what you are saying / implying.
+1. Not my cup of tea either. I am playing NWN2 for the 10th or so time. Also have played ToEE at least 4 times. Guess I will give "Divinity - Original Sin" a try next.
It's interesting how different people reading the same thing read completely different motives and tones into the exact same material. I read the statement as an obviously facetious statement, clearly not something actually meant as a serious suggestion. I honestly can't see how anyone could possibly interpret it as serious, and wold have been perplexed had the poster felt the need to further point out the obvious sarcasm with an emoticon or "j/k" (and to be honest probably a little annoyed by the use of those).
Couple of comments so perhaps you can understand my point of view.
I believe that it is a "generational" interpretation. I am 67, and my dad taught me the "old" values from the WWII generation. While I have passed this on to my children and grandchildren, I see so many teenagers and 20-somethings today have the attitude that I read into the original statement.
I did not take it as serious, in that it was to be taken literally, but I read it as "I want it FREE, I want it NOW, and you jackasses better get working on this above all else, because I WANT it!"
Read his two posts. "not buying the book, just want to read it" and "lock them in an office till it is done." With many of my generation and background "them's fightin words, hoss" and like I said, I failed my will save.
awesome... If they need help, they should just lock the doors to the office and tell everyone they cannot leave untill the work is finished
You do realize that Paizo does not have to put anything into the PRD. This is not required by the OGL, regardless of what some folks think. And they do not recuperate the time and money spent doing so, other than good will to their customer base.
I know that I am going to get in trouble for the following, but I failed my will save:
What are you, 12? Paizo folks have SOs, families, friends, and other things to do, rather than sit around all day and do just what you want them to do.
ps. Moderator, delete this post if you need to. The Quoted statement just really pissed me off.

THANK YOU !!!!!
ps. I got around sleeping on the couch the old fashioned way. I bribed her by taking her out to dinner tonight for a really good prime rib!
Your opinion, your choice.
As I am the person GM'ing the game, I get to pick the characters. Would you rather me say "open to everything" and have a hidden agenda where I won't even consider anything not on my hidden list? Or would you rather me provide guidelines so folks do not spend time on characters that I know won't stand a chance of being chosen?
I have looked thru some of the recruitment and other threads, and I understand that you appear to want the "open to everything", and that is ok. I truly hope that you find a GM that will allow you to create the kind of character that you wish to play. That GM is not me.
Good luck and good gaming.

Not unless it is a new feature. I am version 1.5 and I get all the images for each chapter that I extract.
Here is Gabriel Worldwalker.
I will update him to 3rd level and 25 point buy when I get home this evening. He has two main roles in the group, 1) as healer / buffer, and 2) as face, with secondary role as knowledge boy.
Edit1&3: 2nd & 3rd level hit die roll: 2d8 ⇒ (2, 7) = 9 - I'll take the PFS+1 for the 2nd (6) and rolled for the 3rd (7). (Ok, got it I think)
Other than the first few AP chapters, I really never read the fiction in the AP before today. Not because it was bad/good/whatever, but it did not interest me. Other than my annual re-read of "Talion: Revenant" I have a stack of sci-fi / fantasy books on my night table that I still have to read, and the pile grows and shrinks with time.
Since seeing this thread, I read the fiction in my just downloaded PDF, and agree with Jenner. I can use this fiction in the module, so it becomes more than just something to read, but something that I can use in the AP.
Request: Please give us an option to be sent plain text emails.
I am a paranoid SOB (NOT Sweet Old Boy) and really don't like nor trust html emails and the latest email from the March order spawn came thru as html with remote content, which does not show because I disable it.
Bug: I switch back'n'forth between the Messageboards and My Campaigns tabs on the main Messageboards. When switching to the Messageboards tab, if it has been more than 15(?) minutes or so, it automatically changes to Focus mode, regardless of what the setting was.
Can someone from Paizo please tell me why you don't allow American Express or Bluebird prepaid Amex?
It is an old post with an explanation from Vic, HERE, but this comes up every once in a while and the same answer is given. Amex charges the vendor (ie. Paizo) significantly more than Visa or MC. Also, Vic and others have said that they revisit this and other payment options periodically to see if it makes sense, like they did with Discover card.

Thanks Chris. That let me find it in the stylesheet.css. Small correction, it is "messageboard-listing-no-new-posts", but my threads now show up with the purple background that I like. Appreciate the help.

If (hoping for When) you finish it for which ever system, please announce it on the Paizo boards. I will buy a copy, regardless of system, thanks,
After a long days work, you are spending a relaxing evening in the Rusty Dragon Inn, run by Ameiko Kaijitsu, friend to all, and confidant to some of the younger crowd in Sandpoint. Dinner and beverage have arrived, and just as you are about to being eating, Sheriff Hemlock comes in and after speaking briefly with Ameiko, announces to the room at large, ”the Licktoad goblins of Brinestump Marsh have grown unusually aggressive lately. Must be those fireworks that they have. I am re-instating the 10 gold piece bounty on fresh goblin right ears, but listen up. A few adventurers went there 3 days ago, but have not come back yet, so you young'ns be careful if you go.” With that announcement he leaves the Inn, and all the young folks, including yourself gather to start making plans to save the town from these creatures.
Please provide the following information in your request to join:
Recruitment ends on Thursday evening, January 9th. Four characters will be selected and announced Saturday evening, January 11th . Play will begin on Monday, January 13th.
Did the general, brawler and investigator surveys. Have not taken a very detailed look at the others.
One comment that I did not put in the surveys is. While I am not fond of the alchemist class, I find that the combination of minimal alchemist abilities with the rogue abilities is "exactly" what I am looking forward to playing in our next AP (once we finish Serpent Skull).
-1 to trapfinding and disable device.
My take on this class is a non-evil assassin type. He is out for the kill. Doesn't need the trapfinding, etc. But the sneak attack is just fine.

Marcus stays towards the back as he observes the two paladins while they are talking.
Are paladins always like this? Gab, gab, gab. Let us get the medicines and go. We have a task to do.
For several weeks, excitement has been building in Kenabres — Armasse is coming! Traditionally an opportunity for scholars and priests to come together to study the lessons of history from wars past, since Aroden’s death, this holy day has become more about training commoners in weaponry, choosing squires, and ordaining new priests. Over time, Armasse has grown to encompass jousting competitions, mock duels, battle reenactments, and other festival events. In Kenabres, the festival (which takes place on 16 Arodus) is eagerly anticipated, for it provides distractions from the horrors of being on the front line of the war. Smiles on faces normally marred by downcast eyes and furrowed brows do wonders for city morale in the weeks leading up to the event. Armasse is a citywide celebration, but the majority of the event, including its jousting matches and other entertainments, takes place just west of the cathedral in Clydwell Plaza, where you are now gathered. It is about an hour before the blessing and the official start to Armasse. You see several folks near you, and introduce yourself to them.
Please provide the following information in your response:
Recruitment ends on Wednesday, November 6th. Five characters will be selected and announced on Friday, November 8st. Play will begin on Tuesday, November 12th.
For those that applied to my last recruitment for this AP in August:
HERE The extra hours fell thru so I am only on four hours a week at my part time job. This is a good thing as I am retired and was working only because it gives me something good to do, as well as it is karmic payback for all the years I worked in the “Big Corporation”. Also, now I have more time for playing Pathfinder.

Dang, you have got me reading *all* the information on traps, crafting, etc.

Really??? That is insane, and the crafting times are insane also.
I have been using Spes Magna "Making Craft Work" in my home game for large items. I'll work something up for traps using a combination of the DCs in the PRD, "Making Craft Work" and some common sense.
Craft DCs according to the PRD are 20 for CR 1-5 traps. I will probably lower that to something along the lines of 10+CR. Also the 1000gp x CR will be lowered significantly.
I'll work with you on this. The crafting rules have always been terrible, and even the Spes Magna doesn't help much with the low end items.
More investigation to do.
Oh, and your "wolf trap" is ok. Will come up with a cost later.

Misha turns in for the night, as the rest of you go for at least one drink before going to bed. The rooms that your dwarven hosts provided were adequate, but quite spartan and the beds were quite hard. However, after the run down the mountain you all fall asleep quite quickly and even the hardness of the beds doesn't bother you as everyone gets a good nights sleep.
Morning arrives, and as each of you wake and step outside your room, a dwarven warrior is there to greet you. "If you would follow me please. Capn Cobblestone and Commander Balak would like a word with you." The warrior leads you off to a meeting hall that is significantly bigger than the others. It could easily hold several hundred dwarves. Near the far side, is a meeting table and you see all the others in your group, as well as six dwarves. Reaching the table, one of the dwarves steps forward and in a clipped, military precision tone says, "I am Balak, commander of this strong hold. Firstly, I thank you for bringing our brothers back to us. Secondly, the promised reward of 3,500 gold pieces will be given, you may take it in either gear or gold, your choice. Thirdly, let me introduce the rest of the table." He starts pointing one at a time to the other five dwarves around the table, "Capn Cobblestone you know already. Cordwin, our teller of tales and historian, Raktar, our chief priest, Ellak our chief wizard, and this one is Jasper who is Kreig's uncle and our resident scout." As each dwarf is named, he stands up and nods to the group. "And finally, I understand that you will be heading back into the mountain, and Braldi told us last night that there are eleven miners still alive and waiting for help. According to both Braldi and Kreig you are quite capable, so I would like to offer you another commission, and that is to rescue the miners. As an incentive, we can offer some of the best enchanted armor and weapons made in these parts. One item for each of you be it armor, shield or weapon. What say you?" and he looks to each of you for your agreement or disagreement.
@Redona - level up please....
You know Balak as the strong hold commander. Fair and honest dwarf.
