However...you'd think the 2 guides would say the same thing.
I'm not sure which two guides you're talking about, but the new Guide to Organized Play replaces older versions of the same book, starting August 14.

The AR still has the old language about boons being needed for the nagaji, wayang, and kitsune with no mention of aasimar or tieflings at this time is, I'm assuming, what he means. This does not match the current Guide, or intention stated by staff.

Looks like closest to Serbia is Osijek in Croatia...there's at least a Venture Lieutenant there, so assuming they are rounding something up. Still probably too far away, and you seem to enjoy a more independent game from what I've seen of your posts, but PFS is closer than you think ;)

It may seem bad, but unfortunately, by the Guide that is what should happen, as stated by Nils above.

Starting with Season 4, scenarios are designed for six

characters and contain instructions on how to adjust the
scenario for four-character parties. When the APL of a table
is between two subtiers (like APL 3 for a Tier 1–5 scenario),
a party of four characters must play the lower tier without
any adjustments for party size. A party of five to seven
characters whose APL is between two subtiers must play
the higher tier with the four-character adjustment.

While there may be no 4 person adjustment, that would not negate the rest. Bonekeep's supposed to be extra hard.

Hello I have a question about the having Combat Reflexes and making multiple attacks of opportunity bit.

"Moving out of more than one square threatened by the same opponent in the same round doesn't count as more than one opportunity for that opponent."

Lets say an opponent with only a 5 foot radius threat range like a normal medium humanoid creature.

This means that if you moved around him staying in his threatened squares this would only Provoke 1 attack right?

Well what if you moved out of his threat range (Provoking an AoO) moved back into his threat range and then moved back out again? (Essentially doing a zig zag pattern while still moving around him) would this allow multiple AoO's?

All the movement you could hope to do around a target provokes only one AoO opportunity per round.

You can do other things during the round in the target's threatened area that would provoke additionally, but movement by itself only grants one opportunity.

Overall, the organization and presentation for GenCon was excellent IMO.

Pros:
Having a list of tables I'm going to be running at handed to me at the start was fantastic.

Players bringing sheets and being seated as full tables was great, as you didn't have stragglers coming in and could get organized and set up right away.

Calling out hour and half-hour marks before end of slot was extremely helpful.

Sound system during the Friday night special was MUCH better than I remember them being before. I could understand Mark Garringer easily as his role as Kreighton Shane.

The use of music to signal important changes or imminent announcements was a great way to get attention before the announcement was made. Normally, if you go straight to an announcement, the first few words are missed over the general din of the floor and distraction.

Clearing the hall between big slots made setting up and mustering GM's seem to flow much smoother than if you had to work around standing groups of idle chatters.

Cons:
Clear communication on some points were missing. When I was handed my list of tables, I was told to find the musterer after I went to my table, but when I went to my table I found out from other GM's that that had been changed to stay seated and the musterer will find you. This actually worked out well in the end, but this should be something decided before the Con and stuck with IMO.

On that same note, 5-99 and reporting successes to HQ. There is mention in the scenario that large table events MAY use an optional tracking method of recording successes as they happen. I heard NO mention of whether this was going to happen at all during setup, and went up after my table finished their first section on my own to inquire. Another hour or so into the slot, HQ made an announcement that tables should be doing this, so I'm assuming I was not the only one guessing if we were or weren't.

Timeliness of scenarios to GM's was bad. I'm sorry, but having 2 big specials drop at 5PM the Saturday before GenCon is nuts. From various posts, some folks didn't even get some of their scenarios till Sunday. This led me to running the Friday and Saturday specials with very little prep time, and to decide I probably will request to not run any new scenarios or specials in the future if I go for 4th year in a row.

End times for scenarios should be consistent. The evening finales for Thursday and Friday night were both rushed to finish by 11:30, so the doors could be closed by midnight. Then on Saturday, time wasn't even called till a little after midnight. I was using a shuttle for transportation, and their original pickup time for last call was going to be 12:10. Thankfully, sort of, it was changed prior to GenCon till 1:10, so even with clean up I made it in plenty of time, but this could have led to some serious issues in getting back to my hotel. If a slot is going to be run long, and since it was Bonekeep the decision was probably made awhile ago, a notice to GM's that times for that slot are different would be appreciated.

I didn't mind announcements going out, though they were jarring sometimes as Netopalis mentioned. They at least gave out important information for the most part. The playing of the music during Bonekeep, however, should be canned. It wasn't really mood setting, and was just one more thing adding to the din that had to be heard over towards the tail end of a long convention when voices are already going to be showing signs of wear.

Overall was a great con, and loved what was done to organize and speed things up for table mustering. There are just a few more tweeks could be used to make it perfect.

Sincerely,
Snigg

Ah well that makes sense, so probably got lucky and found one that was trying to get rid of its stock. I figured that being a publisher and retailer, that it wouldn't be possible to beat their prices, but good to see they are being gracious in business.

Also any reason why they do not take pay-pall

The answer I've seen before is the way pay-pal processes the payment/authorization timing is completely incompatible with the way they process subscription orders. As subscription orders are a main keystone to their business model, they don't really want to make changes to it where not absolutely necessary.

That said, they have also mentioned that pay-pal does gave a way of setting up a card number based on your pay-pal account that can be used here...

No you can not replay with the same character. A character may never have more than one of a single chronicle.

The problem I see is that it takes 2 rounds for the con poison to reduce the thing's hit points by one point per hit die.
Am I misremembering how stat penalties work? I was pretty sure if you started with an even numbered stat, and took 1 damage, that your modifier for that stat also dropped.
FLite wrote:
Multiple poisons don't stack, they just extend the duration of the effect.
The DC to save against the poison also increases by +2 with each additional infliction.

Stat damage counts up, kind of like non-lethal damage, and at every 2 points of damage you take a -1 to the relevant stat's current modifier effectively. So, for the most part, odd points of stat damage really does nothing in the scheme of things.

EDIT:

PRD wrote:
For every 2 points of damage you take to a single ability, apply a –1 penalty to skills and statistics listed with the relevant ability. If the amount of ability damage you have taken equals or exceeds your ability score, you immediately fall unconscious until the damage is less than your ability score. The only exception to this is your Constitution score. If the damage to your Constitution is equal to or greater than your Constitution score, you die. Unless otherwise noted, damage to your ability scores is healed at the rate of 1 per day to each ability score that has been damaged. Ability damage can be healed through the use of spells, such as lesser restoration.

Well then it's evil to eat all animals with 4 or more hit dice, because they might have put their ability bump into intelligence. You have no way of knowing, outside casting speak with animals. And if you're the type to regularly prepare speak with animals you would also realize that even creatures of 1 or 2 intelligence can perceive their surroundings, come to conclusions, make decisions, and relay information to others of their kind. Sounds like sentience to me. Therefore, under our PFS house rule, any non-vegetarian would have to get an atonement every so often. :P

Everyone seems to think that animals are Neutral because they are too stupid to be good or evil. Did anyone consider the possibility that killing to eat, and killing to protect your young and/or lair are inherently neutral acts? Your alignment drifts to match your actions.

I know you're trying to be funny with this, but no. Eating sentient humanoids is what is called out, as it would be considered cannibalism.

I truly am boggled by the number of posters that can't seem to understand why something like that might be considered anti-social, repugnant, or evil in society.

So is it worse than lasting conditions early in the scenario like ability damage/drain or negative levels? What about death? It reads like a player would rather have their PC die early in a scenario, pay the prestige or gold and live with 1 negative level all scenario instead of paying 2 PP for a make whole.

I think it's just an awareness issue. It doesn't happen enough for people to realize that it's not that expensive to get items repaired.

Does someone have a chart of repair cost by item CL?

As an aside, I hate negative levels.

Buying make whole via PP would be a moot point, since it would be at CL3. However, you can spend gold to get whatever caster level you want.

Price for make whole spell casting service is 10gp*2nd level spell*caster level needed...so 20gp*CL needed to fix. In general, it's double what the crafting CL of the item is IIRC.

It was released in august 2014 at gencon. The 1 year rule applies I thought to specials like bonekeep sometime around the end of this month bonekeep should be playable.

Bonekeep 1 was originally released in January '13 at Winter Fantasy. Bonekeep 2 came out that same year at GenCon.

Bonekeep 1 was relegated as the season 5 exclusive scenario in February '14 for 4/5 star GM's and VO's. This means (if they don't change their normal guidelines) that it will stay as such for 1 year from this time.

GenCon specials come out in August. 4/5 star exclusives come out in February. Two different types of special events with different release times and table requirements.

4/5 star exclusive doesn't help at all. In fact, my worst experiences are with 4/5 star GMs. From my anecdotal experience, they are, as a group, no better at GMing than 1/2/3 stars.

They're no different than 1/2/3 star GM's other than they have more tables ran. They're still humans and make mistakes, but they're putting forth the effort to try and give more players a chance to play.

Whereas mine are stored in the box and are used each time we play. I think they're helpful in keeping your play area somewhat organized, and keeps your cards off the table and from sliding. They're basically thin mouse pads with slightly rough cloth on top and a no slip foam rubber bottom.

It's a matter of preference and play style is all.

You have fought in several battles, and each time felt the presence of the God of War guiding your sword-arm, making you ready to act at a moment's notice.

Benefits: You gain a +1 trait bonus on initiative checks, and if you are able to act during a surprise round, you may draw a weapon (but not a potion or magic item) as a free action during that round.

So does this mean that I am not longer caught flatfooted during a surprise round?

And can i draw my weapon at once, or do i need to wait for something?

This changes nothing from the normal rules for surprise rounds, and whether you get to act in them except being able to draw a weapon as a free action IF you get to go. If you don't notice the enemy, you don't get to go at all.

I agree. There has been a lot of confusion in the community trying to keep the two specials separate. IMHO, 5-99 should have been called 6-00 since it is the season launching special.

The current 6-00 which is the season five conclusion should have just followed the normal numbering scheme and been called 5-26. Or if we wanted it to appear more special and be outside the normal numbering, call it 5-99.

I totally agreed with you until I read #5-99 and it takes place before #6-00.

I don't know as there is anything to "fix". This has been the case since they initially started letting GM's get partial credit for running scenarios back in Season 2(?) IIRC.

No...there are no extra "versions" of your character to play with. There is your character.

You could use a level 7 pre-gen in that situation to play (if the table was going to be sub-tier 6-7), but you would have to apply the chronicle to a character lower than 7th level.

Five players between tiers would be playing down in season five. You'll need a sixth if you wanna play up.

If you get the sixth, it will be doable, but very tough. My table a couple of weeks ago was barely between tiers, and they pulled it off.

Actually, Simon has it right for this. For season 4 and beyond it's play down with no adjustments for tables of 4 between APL and up with 4 person adjustments for tables of 5 or more.

It should be challenging, but doable I'd think.

A potion is a magic liquid that produces its effect when imbibed. Potions vary incredibly in appearance.

Such times are when the no PvP rule of PFS is sorely tested...

And when the Don't Be A Jerk rule is being ignored...

Or you can wipe the boons and equipment, take 500gp and assign it to the character now.

You still have 10 days, so it might still work out.

You can't do that with GM chronicles, only higher level pregen ones...

Truly. Sorry you had issues getting in with everything intact. Hope they can find everything and get it here quickly for you.

See you tomorrow afternoon!
