OK, I appreciate that this is a relatively low-level issue, but it was pointed out on Wednesday and still isn't fixed on Monday. When is this likely to be fixed?
It is 05:35 on Monday. They are not even in the office yet. And you posted at at 00:50 (or so) on Monday.
Rich Parents (or anything ruled illegal in Classic PFS) is also illegal in Core.
This is not meant to be argumentative, but as I am thinking of DM'ing again, and I do not deal well with jackasses, in fact I don't deal with them at all, may I suggest that a specific statement from the head honcho be made to that affect. The first bullet point in the announcement is that the "additional resources" apply to the Classic campaign, leaving it open for someone to argue that since that is where "rich parents" is mentioned, that it is now ok for the Core campaign.
First time someone made that argument, I'd leave the table and go home. Like I said, I don't deal well with jackasses.
Apologies if this has been asked / answered, but I have a couple of questions.
I assume (and we all know what that means), that the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play, will be re-written some day for Core, as it presents a lot of options that are now no longer valid and too numerous to ask about.
Two traits in particular. Adopted. Does this open Race Traits, which are not part of the Web Enhancement. Rich Parents. Is this allowed?
Well, in the RotRL (AE) they list Firepelt cougars as Bestiary page 40 which is the page with cheetah and leopard, so it is a reasonable assumption that as an animal companion you would use small cat. Also, there is no entry for specifically a firepelt cougar animal companion with starting stats.
Do you have better information than what you have said already, like starting stats, etc?
I use point buy myself for my home game, but put restrictions on it. One score 8+ all others 10+ after racial adjustments.
The reason for the restrictions is that I saw, really, a Society Character that was Str 20, Dex 14, Con 16, Int, Wis, cHa 7. He played a barbarian.
Also, I use point buy because of what Protoman said above, although it would be Richie rolling that low, but then we have Pete who would roll nothing less than a 15........
I am building a Mystic Theurge for an upcoming campaign (Reign of Winter) that I will be playing in.
So far, Male aasimar (archon-blooded) Cleric 1.
S:11, D:14, C:14, I:12, W:18, cH:10
Will take a 2nd level in Cleric, then Empryeal Sorcerer, then MT and finish off whatever levels are left with Cleric. So at 13th level for spells he is effectively cleric 12 / sorcerer 11 with a 21 or better wisdom via level bumps.
He will be a pure caster, ie. back line character.
Couple of questions and some advice seeking:
Also, I really don't want to get into summoning unless absolutely the only way to go.

I'm going off topic, the point is that behaviours and attitudes like this anti-hero lab sentiment, will be tolerated because we have to few GMs, and is probably more symptomatic of some GM burnout and frustration levels being high due to lack of relief.
And this is why I won't play PFS, except online in a PbP and even then very limited (3 sessions total across 2 characters). I blew a gasket when one of the 5 star GMs started boasting about how many PCs he had killed and even though I calmed down a bit, this kind of crud really annoys me no end and makes PFS just not worth the aggravation, just like the anti-Hero Lab sentiment. And I don't own Hero Lab.
Assuming that you are on a Windows PC there are at least three that I know of and use and I am sure that there are more:
As usual, read each page carefully. Lots of download pages want to install other stuff besides the product you are interested in.
The one I normally use is Foxit and other than one Paizo PDF it works great (and that one PDF works 90% of the time). Nitro is my backup and Adobe is there just in case there is a really weird one.
Thank you for the answers. Pretty much what I thought was the answers.
I am pretty much a RAW guy, but if there are multiple plausible interpretations I like to hear the RAI if possible.
Yea, my first character was an Unearthed Arcana Ranger "Traine dan Torcan". He was a lot of fun to play, and I even have my original character sheet upstairs in my old bookcase along with well used copies of "Temple of Elemental Evil" and the GDQ series.

quick clarification i caught, the arcane dabbler says
I see that you are listed as one of designers in the PDF. Did you write / collaborate on Arcane Dabbler? Is the "any one arcane spellcasting list" to be considered an "official" errata / RAI?
Also, yes, I caught the wisdom based arcane caster. My first ever DnD character back in the 1980's was a Ranger who got Druid spells and Mage spells around level 8 / 9, and I am using this to recreate him.
edit: Pardon, but a clarification. Does the Arcane Dabbler get 0 level spells, or just 1,2,3 as appropriate?
I am trying to figure out RAI since my DM will ask, thanks.
How about most prehistoric world exist underground (or remote islands). The dwarves found one such cavern and, after expanding the tunnel quite a bit, are the leading world supplier of Exotic/prehistoric pets and bronto burgers.
That might actually work. There is a dwarven city in the under dark, so it could have exotic pets.
I am trying to mostly recreate my first ADnD V1 character from the mid 80's. An Unearthed Arcana ranger. He got some druid spells and a few mage spells, all around 8th / 9th level. I can do this by creating a ranger and a 2 level dip in to a new 3PP class, Arcane Dabbler from Little Red Goblin Games, to give him a few 1st and 2nd lever sorcerer spells.
So, yea, I think I have discarded the Hunter. Using Boon Companion, I can get within 1 level of a full druid level Animal Companion. I may rethink this, but right now I am sticking with ranger.
Yea, I was looking at the dinosaur but I need to come up with some kind of back story as to why he would gain it as an AC. thanks,
edit: Ugh, no on the snake. Sorry, but just no. thanks for the suggestion though.
I am creating a character for a new campaign that I will be in.
Character decisions made:
When he gets to 4th level he will take the Animal Companion option but will wait till he gets back home to his city (around 7th level or so) to pick up the creature and also take Boon Companion as his 7th level feat.
What I am looking for help with is:
What Animal Companion should I choose, given the mostly under ground nature of the campaign?
The DM is pretty flexible as long as I can show him the source for the creature.
Since I was most interested in the Arcane Dabbler, I have read that one and have a question or two.

Ah, it shows up as -1 when cut'n'paste above, but -I (Capital "I") in the PDF.
Does he get bonus spells cast due to "high" chosen mental score?
By the way, I frackin Love this PrC !
Thank you !!!

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.
First edition Ranger (my all time favorite!) here I come. I can now recreate Traine dan Torcan, who was my first DnD character ever.
The Goliath Druid is Paizo material. From d20pfsrd.

I am playing around with this. Something that puzzles me is "why take a level in Monk? What does it do for the build?"
Monk 1 gets rid of armor but adds Wis to armor class, adds 10 feet movement.
I guess that I am just missing the purpose behind, or how you get the huge amounts of unarmed damage.
Thanks. I think that I will change it slightly, and go Druid 1 / Monk 1 / Druid +7 for 9 levels total. Then I'll figure out the rest at that point.
Need the Endure Elements spells early.
20 point buy: S 17, D 14, C 14, I 10, W 14, cH 8, human.

I loved reading through your guide. This type of character sounds way fun. What I really wanted to know while reading it was what kind of level progressions for the two types you would suggest? I was also curious for maybe a model of how it might work as it levels. These are just my constructive criticisms.
Sample builds is what I am looking for. The next campaign, that I will play in won't be till about February 2015, and this looks like something that I would love to play.
For a sample build, we will be going to level 17 max, so I am thinking druid 4, then some levels of monk.
So if I understand correctly; I could create a Peri-Blooded Aasimar, take two levels of Admixture Evoker, one level of Druid taking the Fate Inquisition (instead of animal companion or domain) and enter MT at 4th level? Then I would finish out with Wizard.
If this is correct, which I think that it is, I have my PC for the next campaign which should be starting early February 2015.
I would like to see a Genius Guide to the Talented Druid, since it is my 2nd favorite class.
Will send a note, but I would like "The Genius Guide to the Talented Ranger (PFRPG) PDF" since that is my most favorite class.
ps. You added too many "." in your last email address "rogue.genius.games.com" does not exist.....
