I've wondered this for a while: In Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition, did Paizo remove or change anything because it was no longer 3.5 and as such couldn't use some material that wasn't under the OGL in 3.5?

I have both the original and anniversary edition and can't find anything.

With these changes are they going to make it so some scenarios require an effective star rating of 6 or 7?

Actually they are, the default rules are transparency, where the psionic and spells are the same thing. Detect psionics is the same as detect magic, the overall effect is the same even if the game mechanics behind the scenes are different.

It is largely accepted that the psionic system is more "balanced" than the vancian casting, you need to play for things that are included in spells innately. As long as the balance of the subsystem is in fact balanced, it isn't an issue. Some systems may do things better than others, or lend themselves to certain tactics, but if they are balanced... Plug and play shouldn't be an issue mechanically.

Largely accepted it is more balanced? Last I heard all of Paizo's game designers prefer Vancian. I haven't heard what their newest designer (Rogue Eidolon) thinks of it. I love Dreamscarred Press's Ultimate Psionics. I think they fixed most of the problems I had with 3.0, and 3.5 psionics by WotC and prefer the system it uses over Vancian but I have never seen many people who agree with your statement. We will have to agree to disagree because I have seen no evidence to support it.

Preferring vanician casting isn't the same as it being more balanced, not even close

...

That doesn't refute what I said, and in your words "not even close"...

What Paizo designers have expressed as their preference was only a side note. The important line is "I have never seen many people who agree with your statement". To be largely accepted as more balanced there needs to be a large number of people who say it is more balanced.

Again, we can agree to disagree.

The major differences lie in the fact that a lot of the spells scale more based upon how many power points you spend to cast the spell and meta psionics feats normally cannot be used again until you spend actions to reacquire your psionic focus whereas in 3.x D&D Vancian you just have caster level, and you don't have to spend any actions to cast another spell with with a meta magic feat (but some classes increase the casting time on to cast with most metamagic feats). Also you can't use all of your casting ability to cast your highest level of spells in Vancian because you have spell slots, not points you can spread as you see fit (with a max per manifestation of your manifested level).

Those major differences are why I do not believe you can just call Paizo's Psionic Spells Psionic Powers and just assign a cost to manifest the spell.

Sharaya,

Thanks for taking care of this, the new order has a much more reasonable shipping charge (but I think does look a little low).

However the item that shipped today shows that shipping is $9.47 for USPS which seems extremely high for a GM screen to the region of the US I live in and is higher than the combined shipping of all other items.

There is a problem with shipping on this order, it wants to ship my stuff in 5 separate packages.

This is the second month in a row where the subscription confirmation email wanted to ship my order in a large number of packages. I thought I would have time to get this resolved but I already got an email today saying one of the 5 packages is about to ship.

I confirmed on the original order for this item that it was to be sidecarted from the confirmation email you sent me on September 28th order #3730098.

Is there any way I can get the shipment fixed so everything is shipped together (or 2 packages if it is actually cheaper) so I don't pay an extremely large shipping fee for 37305370?

Cheaters are gonna cheat, but the sign-off rule appears way too easy to exploit. I really don't want to make it too easy for them.

The issue with having people sign off on their ownership of physical books is someone could just borrow someone's book, get it signed off, then return the book after photocopying the pages they need.

Or, if they still own the book, they could sell the book to someone else but keep claiming they own one.

The fact that PDF's are non-transferable, and are watermarked with the buyer's name makes it a little more difficult to fake, but nothing is impossible. Plus you don't need to have an tablet or smartphone, just a way to print out the pertinent pages.

I coordinate games at a store, and I know there is a Gamin follow up. The only sad thing is the level range of the Gamin followup can prevent people from doing both if they leveled up too much. Or if they happened to play with a different character. One of my players was disappointed because he didn't know about and lost his chance.

I wish I knew what the nexus scenario is so I could arrange it so players that come to games I coordinate could take part in it before they no longer can. That isn't as critical now because some of them have those characters on hold until they can get the bonekeep 3 on their character.

The store we play at is very generous and has offered to buy one scenario and print it out every time we meet. While I do not take advantage of this, we have GMs that need it but unfortunately their printer occasionally messes up, causing multiple sections to be unreadable. This happens the most for season 5 scenarios, their printer tends to fail with the really dark background season 5's have at the top and bottom of those pages.

Per instructions I've received from Paizo when I asked about their policies, pdfs of scenarios cannot be shared. So when this happens I look at my pdfs and send them the unreadable text of the small sections needed.

A few times, I have purchased the pdf through Paizo's gifting system for our more destitute GMs when the print out is so bad, I would have to send more than a few pages of information.

Ask a lawyer and pay his legal fees if you want to challenge it? I don't know how contracts work when the contract has an impossible date mentioned. However, last time I checked Paizo announced that We Be Goblins Free would be made available on July 1st.

So if you want it sooner, you'd have to convince Paizo to risk the consequences of releasing before then, whatever those may be, legal, loss of good will and otherwise.

I will just disagree with you. From my experience, way too many times higher level gun users hit on a 2. If you make it so you add your dexterity to damage it becomes even worse; especially when you roll that natural 20 that is almost always confirmed at a x4.

Scorching ray wands are typically more expensive per shot (120 gp per shot unless you take craft wand) and you usually can only ever fire one a round. Also they do fire damage and fire resistance/immunity is one of the more common ones, in my opinion. Not to mention, gun users usually have a higher BAB so will hit more often.

With Rapid Reload and paper cartridges, gun users can shoot an amazing number of times, however the misfire rate does go up with paper cartridges.

So what do we do about games that GMs ran when they didn't know about these changes? Does the GM have to go back and retroactively remove a player's chronicle sheet because he didn't know about these rules the night he played the game and he played an APG summoner that didn't have 4 experience points?

The PFS guide says that a GM is not expected to be familiar with every post but cannot ignore posts that he is made aware of?

Nope. The text is fairly unambiguous:

Slashing grace wrote:
Choose one kind of one-handed slashing weapon (such as the longsword).

It says one handed weapons, and gives a clear example of what it means.

The general purpose of this wording is that it aims to make it hard to use slashing grace with TWF. You have to put more investment in to make it happen. That is the design principle behind TWF and dex based builds in general.

Just want to point out that there is one example where slashing grace affects a specific light one-handed weapon as well as a specific one-handed melee weapon. This leads me to believe that an individual can select a slashing one-handed Light Melee weapon or a slashing One-Handed Melee weapon

Add 1/4 to the swashbuckler’s effective class level to determine the extra damage she deals because of the precise strike deed when wielding a light pick or a heavy pick. If the swashbuckler has the Slashing Grace feat or another similar effect, she can treat the battleaxe or handaxe as a one-handed piercing melee weapon, and she gains this benefit when wielding the appropriate weapon for the feat as well.

I don't know if this has already been addressed but I'd like either a FAQ or clarification if possible.

Slashing grace has been clarified by the masses to only include weapons in the one-hand category due to how it is written. I'd love to find out if the developers meant for it to be this way or if they meant any weapon wielded in one hand.

Yes, there has been updates from a couple different developers in this thread:

Also, I've seen them say that they are very reluctant to post when updates will be before hand. I think this is very likely because of how disappointed some people can be when waiting for something when there is a chance that a bug could delay the release.

Last year Michael Brock told me it was automatic now, and it would be added automatically. However, after a month I had to contact Paizo customer service to get it added to my account.

I believe when they get a new 4 star reward they just add it to all current 4 stars. If you become a new one you may have to ask customer service for it if you don't automatically get it.

Monstrous extremities will not work with the ring of seven lovely colors. You can only have one polymorph spell on at a time. You can only be affected by one or the other.

The ring lets the user use beast shape IV to transform into a songbird. Both beast shape and monstrous extremities are transmutation(polymorph) spells.

PRD on transmutation(polymorph) wrote:
You can only be affected by one polymorph spell at a time. If a new polymorph spell is cast on you (or you activate a polymorph effect, such as wild shape), you can decide whether or not to allow it to affect you, taking the place of the old spell. In addition, other spells that change your size have no effect on you while you are under the effects of a polymorph spell.

I personally like the current release rate. With Core becoming available they effectively made it so they have approximately 1 scenario per week come out as they usually have about 26 scenarios per year.

So those of us that play every other week don't run out of scenarios and keep up with the new scenarios, and those who play every week don't run out of options to play.

I really think that introducing the PFS Core campaign was a good decision.

As far as prices go, I'd rather they not increase it. Being a store coordinator, the cost of running games falls on me more than anyone else and I really don't want the cost to coordinate games increase. I buy every scenario so if there is an emergency I can run games as a backup GM.

The problem is not every game is reported and some games are reported inaccurately. My brother tried to get one game corrected to the correct character and used their link to point out the mistake and nothing ever happened.

For coordinating games at my local gaming store, I created a program that parses the html of Paizo's sessions pages (player sessions, GM sessions and event sessions). I let the players know if they want me to use their games played elsewhere in consideration for what we run in the future they need to just log in, go to their player and gm sessions page. Expand both then save the html as a complete html file and give me their file.

Personally I would have issues if paizo made this information publicly available to people not involved in reporting games.

It parses it and inserts their data into my database and thus I now have a current list of every scenario players have played or gm'd as it has been reported.

I am not sure I could legally give this program out so please don't ask. There are terms in the program that may fall under Paizo's intellectual property and may not fall under their community use policy. I am not willing to hire a lawyer to consult me for a program I cannot make any money off of either because of my contract with my current employer.

I wrote this program to learn more about various concepts that I used in the implementation.

Judging a seasons's power evel by its first 3 scenarios... same thing.

I actually think Season 6, overall, is easier than Season 5, and some of the lower level stuff is quite on par with Season 2 or 3.

While that is true, At the store I coordinate games, there were a few new players that started on 6-1 and hated the technology. I told them the entire season won't be like his and they came back for 2 and 3 and then quit. Unfortunately the next one didn't have what they didn't like.

Over all I like season six, I don't think I have disliked any and my group deliberately do scenarios three months after they come out so we don't have to worry if there is a delay like there was December 2013 and January 2014. I think my favorite is Hall of the Flesh Eaters. I feel those people really missed out but it is a risk when you have that many abnormal scenarios all in a row.

I created characters 10-20 which I already had reported games on last year (I accidentally made one a core even though the scenario was run before core was available). When I click on sessions on the character I go to a screen that says "Your Search did not match any items".

I need to clarify... Reporting the scenarios for those characters I never created happened before the core changes. When I found out that characters had to officially be created in order to report now I just created the characters really quick so I wouldn't be a part of the problem of why my group can no longer report scenarios.

Terek, did you do this recently? We added code that does not allow reporting if all characters are not registered (or are registered for a different program, etc., we're going to be releasing code that will mitigate that somewhat in the case of unregistered characters, as it's turning out to be too restrictive). Given that unregistered characters should prevent the session from being reported, I'm curious as to how you reported the session.

No, it was done before the core campaign changes.

If it can't be fixed, at least give us a workaround.
I recommend not reporting the characters that are causing the issue. If it does not pop up RPG when you enter their number, delete them. If the GMs character is not registered, do not add his character number, just his player number. You can report a table of zero players. (This is how Overseer GMs are usually reported) If the players later register their characters, you can add them in later. Since the reporting system is not the official record of experience, minor errors like this do not affect much in the grand scheme of things.

The issue is then we have to remember what we didn't report then go back and report it again. This may seem like a small thing to people who don't understand how busy other people can be but it really is a big thing for us from our perspective. For time constraints I really want to just report the scenario once and be done with it. Now I have players emailing me and asking me why their sessions haven't been reported.

I've had way too many times where I don't get all of the information from players at the game. They swear they will give it to me and nine times out of ten they never ever do and I am left holding the bag with reporting stuff.

It really is a bad thing for bugs to prevent us from even saving what we do have from my perspective.

I GM'd and reported a lot of games with several characters I have not added yet. Due to the new reporting bug I added those characters quickly and I noticed their sessions are not linked with the already reported sessions on that PFS#.

This is important because I give out new PFS#'s so I can report games without waiting for people to get back to me after they create their character. I've always told people they can create their account with their card and the session I report will automatically be linked to their character.

Bugs that prevent a coordinator from reporting games are really bad because often times coordinators do not have the ability to get more information, especially at conventions.

This is a known issue. See this thread.

I didn't see these errors listed though guess I need to create a new thread.

I am also a GM and I reported games with several characters I have not added yet. I went a head and created those characters and it appears to not link those characters with the games already reported when I click to see that character's sessions.

There appears to be several bugs affecting me and games reported by my characters.

I cannot report non core games. I keep getting an error saying the character is the wrong type.

At least half the people have not created their characters on this website.

Some of the characters were created before the core change.

Also I notice that hitting the show all scenario button now makes it so I show no scenarios and can't get back without exiting and coming back in.

I am also a GM and I reported games with several characters I have not added yet. I went a head and created those characters and it appears to not link those characters with the games already reported when I click to see that character's sessions.

Please email me if you need more information on this and how I can recreate this problem.

Hey,

I've been tossing around ideas for a paladin of Kurgess to try to make a unique kind of paladin. My GM for the campaign I am building him for pointed out how he liked Faiths of Purity and the paladin codes for a few different dieties and asked me for some kind of code Kurgess's paladins would follow.

For those who don't know who Kurgess is, he is a Neutral Good God of bravery, competition, and sports. He became a diety after he saw a trap in one of his competitions, and he deliberately sprang it on himself to prevent anyone else in the competition from getting hurt. For more information, he has a small piece in Inner Sea Gods.

I view a paladin of Kurgess as someone who loves sportsmanship and values teamwork.

Code for Human Paladin of Kurgess:
I will put my team before myself. I will value my teammates lives above my own.

I will help my teammates overcome their weaknesses and seek to bring out their strengths.

I will be positive and uplifting to my team.

I will not tolerate cheating in any kind of organized competition, and will call it out if I ever see it.

I will be respectful to my opponents in any kind of competition.

If any I choose to fight ask me for a fair fight, I will always give it to them.

I will promote good sportsmanship in all that I do.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

I don't quite understand all the hate directed at the "Iron Gods" adventure path, Numeria, and the efforts to tie-in the Pathfinder Society scenarios. These folks never loved "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" or shown any appreciation to Paizo's loving homage to one of the greatest adventures in the history of "Dungeons & Dragons" and the RPG hobby.

Different people like different things. That is all you have to understand. Some people like caviar and I think it is gross. I like tofu plain, and others think it is gross. People don't have to like the same things as you.
