Could it be possible that some GMs (like myself) forgot to put the scenario number/name on top and those unknown scenarios have not been reported?

***** Venture-Captain, New Jersey aka Shivok

Congrats Vincent. He was my very 1st GM for PFS. We had him in NYC for a little bit, way back in 2010

I might just run an online Dark Sun pathfinder conversion based off all these ideas.

I would look at the Kasatha and the ogre admissible starting points for thri-kreen and half-giant and Slayer for bard.

^For The Lion's Venge, shouldn't that be eastern/northeastern Taldor?

Also, this should also include Qadiran involvement, since Qadira also has reason to feel they have a claim on Ninshabur's territory, and they want to conquer Taldor anyway. Restraining orders by the Padishah Emperor of Kelesh (of which they are a part) have kept them from attacking Taldor again recently, and may also be part of what is keeping them from trying to do the Adventure Path themselves, but an attempt by Taldor to do this might be seen as the perfect excuse for them to go to war.

oops, You're right it should have been Northeastern Taldor...your idea could be inserted in one of the Ap books! :)

I intend to run 00-17 Perils of the Pirate Pact this year.

It will be taken care of, Have no worries.

So since you created the event go back to it, and on the bottom when you report it, click on delete this session and it should delete your session.

Let me know if that works for you.

Get away from the 18 Dex start at 17 and then at 4th level raise it to 18.

This would let you get higher stats in other areas.

STR 10 (im assuming you'll be a dex based damage dealer.)
DEX 17 (raise at 4h lvl)
CON 14
INT 13
WIS 10
CHA 15 (raise at 8th level)

PFS Sanctioned

Scenario: EMERALD SPIRE Level 1 (Tier 1-2)

Date/Time: Friday, August 29th, 2014 @ 12:00 PM EDT US [-4 UTC]

GM: June Soler

Game Client: Google Plus Hangout and the Roll20.net VTT

Description:

Level 1 of the Emerald Spire Superdungeon

For ages untold, a gemstone monolith has pierced the heart of the Echo Wood. Now, as civilization intrudes upon this enigmatic splinter, a strange life once again stirs in the depths—one with ties to undying evils and a might beyond time itself. The promise of wealth and power calls to glory-seekers from across the Inner Sea region, tempting them into a labyrinth of monster-haunted vaults, defiled tombs, arcane laboratories, and worse, as they seek to unveil the secrets locked below the legendary Emerald Spire.

John,

Great Job!

In the land rush Chronicle it states Every other Chronicle sheet for
The Emerald Spire Superdungeon grants you...

Does this mean every additional ES chronicle sheet or does it skips one chronicle sheet and then the 3rd, 5th, 7th....sheets

Congrats and Welcome to the team!

I have to ask you this then?

Does the existence of Cure Disease trivialize the real world medical crosses? The legendary epidemics of polio, malaria, smallpox, and the Black Plague?

Does the existence of the Heal spell trivialize the real world problems of insanity, paralysis blindness, deafness and the other issues it cures? Does the very existence of Paladins trivialize disease and suffering they cause?

Or is it possible to remember that this game isn't meant to be a pattern for how we deal with our real world lives? That down to earth it's primary purpose is some harmless escapist fun? And that the real world issues of LGBT go beyond mere sex/gender binaries? That there are such issues that no Elixir can bypass?

You make some valid points, I guess we'll see if it ever becomes an issue.

It's the same ability(dex) they dont stack.

I also use the justification Tony has, we may be seeing an adventure in Tian Xia in the future. I believe John mentioned this as a possibility in either the blog or the podcast.

I'd like to see a new edition largely because I'd like to have something Pathfinder-related to buy again. The system has gotten so bloated and powercrept that new options are a detriment to the play experience, and the APs haven't been compatible with with the power level of the game since around Ultimate Magic or so.

It would also be nice to see a departure from certain outdated mechanics, like Challenge Rating's single-monster combat assumption and the four combats/day assumption. It would also be nice to see a well-functioning and well-supported higher-level game. But now I digress; we each have a laundry list of desired changes.

-Matt

All this does is restart the cycle and the bloat will come back in 3-4 years as it has done now. A better options is to restrict what products you want used in your games.

Looking to trade

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

NO.

The game is fine the way it is. If it needs to be tweaked Pathfinder Unchained can get the most annoying parts fixed (hopefully) and we could use that.

Rules bloat happens in every incarnation of the game system.

Just use what you want and restrict the rest.

The game system can continue to evolve with their current model, unless they get too greedy.

I think its safe to say when the campaign leadership gets back the AR may get some rewording into it.

Additional resources assumes that no ability changes were made to the classes. That literally it was just modifying how the different abilities worked or swapping out spell lists feats etc.

But the fact that if you used this rule for the warpriest you might end up with a completely nerfed character, it leads me to believe that the rule in the guide is more specific to these circumstances and specific trumps general.

Andrew pretty much covered on this one!

Nice. This was taken during Bonekeep 3 slot. I see our table right in the middle RED 10. Gotta love a Dirge Bard for the win!

Mark,

Thanks again for all your hard work making this event happen, I know it wasnt easy.

You were as flexible as you could be and it was a good experience and I definitely appreciate it.

***** Venture-Captain, New Jersey aka Shivok

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

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.
