I will be there next year as well.

In fact I'll be in Fort Jackson for two weeks in mid-September this year.

I had a great time mostly GMing PFS. I gm'd 6-01 every morning, 6-02 on Fri and Sat and I gm'd both specials. All of my players were well prepared, had party cohesion and pleasant attitudes. I unfortunately killed one player in 6-02 with a crit but he was still in good spirits even after that.

Best part of the Gencon experience was reconnecting with the many VO's, players and GM's who I've met at previous cons and meeting new players and gm's all over the country to see their play styles and GMing techniques.
HQ volunteers were great and very helpful, I know a good chunk were SCARAB folks so a big thank you to you guys and girls! The only suggestion I have for mustering is to invest in a few bullhorns if possible.

The ICv2 or Amazon rankings don't account for the direct sales from Paizo to the consumer. Which is probably the tens of thousands(not for every product, just in sales). These sales skip the main three distributors and local stores and we'll never know for sure how many copies of a product are sold, unless you know print runs.

Yeah, I've got a warpriest of Nivi Rhombodazzle that will be extremely sad if he has to change to another deity just to be able to use his blessings. The text of this should probably say "A warpriest is limited to choosing Blessings which match the domains of his deity."

I'm sure this is the case and will be updated after Gencon as all but two (scalykind and void) of the domains are represented. Which will probably be found in a book coming out soon that will detail the missing domains....like Champions of Corruption perhaps.

Disappointed by this:
I cant believe the shape of the Blakros Museum was changed. I thought that was an iconic piece of PFS. I would have expanded or conducted ' interior decoration'. But its described as the old structure in box text...ugh

Hey John, what time is it? Is it past noon?

Yes, I'm impatient. :-)

There was an update somewhere. These will be released tomorrow morning

I stand corrected. You learn something new everyday. ;)

None of the current Wizard Discoveries are allowed in PFS, so I dont think this one will be approved, although if they did I'd roll up a WHW in an instant.

Love it. Great addition to the Iconic roster.

I'm curious what her shaman spirit is. Lore (since she's so interested by history and tradition)?

Her spirit is Lore, although Kolo keeps trying to talk her into earth.

When I read it the talk she had with the elementals was cool. Since elemental spirits dont actually have gender assignments, they choose the gender based on how they feel.

Perhaps earth would fit her better or any of the elements.

I guess it may be just my luck, but every GM i have ever had for a Non-PFS game has limited what PC races I can play more stringently then PFS. In fact most have limited it to just Core Races.

PFS is the most open to other races game I have ever played.

Me too. And I'm like that when I GM non PFS as well

Essentially, your Data from TNG and represent a unique trial of artificial sentience being recognized in the Society. Not only is this fitting with the advent of Numeria, but major auction cash draw.

I'm sure this one will be at the auction.

I don't think that it is worthy of an auction boon.

If he truly had become a paladin, and there's nothing in the story to suggest otherwise, then he would indeed have been redeemed - one of Sarenrae's chief principles. Zadim could then report back to his superiors and tell them that "Gordreth the Butcher" is no more and still be telling the truth (from the description he seems to be able to parse his words efficiently).

Whether he had actually killed the old man doesn't matter in that regard, although he (Gordreth/Jevantus) could certainly have offered himself up as a final atonement. Letting him live wouldn't "violate" his mission either, though.

You might have something here. He could easilt report to this master that Gordreth the butcher is dead, he was killed by Jevantus, Paladin of Sarenrae.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

He most likely LN. Following the word of his masters, and then became N upon sparing the Paladin if he did spare him.

Or the 'Paladin' could be a hoax and Zadim saw through his charade and killed him.

Somehow though I dont think he works for any other people anymore.

Many Thanks guys it was a long time in the making!

Talk to your organizer. Explain to them your reasons why you want to limit the number of players. Try to be flexible. If, every once in awhile, you need to accommodate one more person than you would like, well I think that's fair if your organizer is working with you the rest of the time. A good organizer understands how important and necessary it is to keep her GMs happy.

This right here!

If you are your own organizer well keep yourself happy.

Are we *sure* the Grapple puts the opponent adjacent for a WHW? Because in that case, what does the "Pull" ability even do?

Pull wrote:
Pull (Ex): At 6th level, a white-haired witch who successfully strikes a foe with her hair can attempt a combat maneuver check to pull the creature 5 feet closer to her as a free[sic] action.
I'm not an expert on the grapple rules by any means, but from the existence of that ability, I would infer that the WHW and the opponent are not automatically adjacent.

Although I know whats RAW, I think this should get looked at in Pathfinder unchained. Not just for the White haired witch but for any creatures that have a reach grapple ability. It seems hokey the things a player/gm can do with the whole 'move them to an adjacent square' bit.

In this case a 12th Lvl WHW could move a grappled character 15 feet closer to them. That creature would provoke AoA against any characters in the pull area (which by the way is not defined in the rules).

I think your reading of this is going to be impacted by the order of precedence you apply these two effects in.

Normal: Str to damage rolls, 1/2 Str to offhand
Double Slice: Add Full Str to off hand weapon
Agile: Use Dex in place of Str when rolling damage

If you apply them in that order, then it seems pretty straight forward to apply full DEX.

The question is really:

Does the AGILE ENCHANTMENT treat all instances of STR to DAMAGE as being replaced by DEX to DAMAGE?

Because Double Slice modifies the normal rules for STR to DAMAGE allowing full STR, you should replace the normal off-hand damage rule. That is what the feat does. Once that restriction has been removed (for your character) then there is no half-strength restriction for agile to interact with (the language of the enchantment is the damage is STILL reduced). If there is no reduction, then AGILE no longer has anything for the modifier of STILL to apply to.

Based upon that reading (and I think the English language), if you have Double-Slice and Agile, you deal full DEX damage with your off-hand weapon.

This is the order I would GM it on. After all you always have your feat. and it would apply any other weapon that qualifies. The addition of the agile weapon only enhances what you can already do as a character (with feats)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'd rule it works in my table.

Simply because of this in place of the agile feat is substituting whatever strength modifier you get with your dex modifier.

Double slice is a feat that eliminates the damage reduction for off-hand weapons. Allowing you to attack with full modifiers.

I envisioned the 3 years of training a lot like the real-world military and police training.

You go throughout a basic training that lasts a month or two and graduate via the' confirmation' and then begin you on the job training as a young pathfinder.

We're heading back to the Minkai to catch up with Amari li, see how the family is doing after getting the monetary notes from the sword in [redacted]. Plus I'm sure we'll be using the Hao Jin Tapestry to explore some Tian areas the society has yet to see... more to follow in season 6.

Did I miss something? Allowing the racial archetype was supposed to be the only benefit. I thought I closed loopholes off with

Lol. I misread it. I thought you were giving them the option of all the benefits.

I blame Benjamin, my ears are still ringing from his Kitsune video.

So are unused triple race boons now only good for lining the cat litter box?

I had wondered the same thing upon learning that aasimar, tieflings, and tengu would be "always available," and that query led to the creation of the Xenophobia boon ("sacrifice" a race boon to Xenophobia to gain favored enemy against one of that creature's subtypes). I'm very open to creating another boon that provides additional uses for devalued race boons.

Suggestions?

Yeah, now I'm kinda regretting attaching my Tiefling boon to a Xenophobia.

Hmmm... how about Crossing Cultures - You may take a take a feat of the attached racial boon that has no prerequisites other than race in place of a normal feat gained by leveling.

I haven't checked all of the possible feats yet. That may be a little bit too exploitable or just difficult to explain (Nagaji Spit Venom Feat).

Or allows you to take a racial archetype...

Something like this could be workable...I like it. The Nagaji Spit Venom feat wouldnt apply unless you were of a race that could spit venom. Vishkanya maybe.

So what is the reasoning for removing of the two races?

It's more a cycling of races, in a few years the new one will be gone and another set may replace them. You will still have the option of getting an Aasimr boon or Tiefling boon in the future, so they're not completely locked out.

I gotta reward this guys creativity, reminds me of the beastmaster movie.

If he wants to be a clown let him, just talk to him and ask him to tone it down a notch or two. Give him the reasons why. Many people allow a players antics because no one wants to be seen as confrontational.

I agree with everyone on the shield issue, it's a ranged attack.
