I think it is fair to say that people HAVE asked nicely about the delay, and gotten no answer.

Being an introvert, I really relate to that. :D

I find my four hour PFS sessions to be perfect chunks of time. :D

I find XP as written to be a whole lot of extra math to answer the question 'when do the players level?' and I prefer to make it far far simpler on me than the system presented in the rules. Pathfinder Society is a good example of simplification of the process. This admittedly loses some advantage in flexibility, as you can't really give bonus XP or anything when all it takes is three points to level up. But I don't find that too big of a loss.

I don't really see the problem that the OP has in my games. There have been some very questionable missions, but it is never the Society as a whole that is endorsing them, just specific members. For every Zarta Dralneen we have, there is an Ollystra Zadrian. That's why the Pathfinder Society is Neutral. If you undertake Evil actions, that isn't representative of the Society, it is a representation of your character.

You are the DM and have a group of people Pathfinder and you have to hand out the XP. Does it matter if its an AP or home brew?

If people show up (no matter what they do or don't do) they get equal share of the xp?

Do you reward people for whatever?

Should XP be "fair"?

I have dropped XP in my games as unnecessary. However, I do acknowledge that players often enjoy a measurable indication of progress.

In the case that I were to offer XP, I would assign a group total rather than individual rewards.I prefer not to deal with parties with unequal levels. (This has been softened by my time in PFS where groups are rarely composed of evenly leveled characters.)

This does lead to players never missing XP, but if I am not providing an engaging enough game that you need another carrot to ensure your participation, I do not believe we will be gaming together for much longer. Individual rewards come in a flavor other than XP, such as in-game boons or mechanical bonuses.

"Fair" is a murky concept that must be hammered out between the players at the table. XP is fair to some and unfair to others.

You can't take the rules as they are. RAW is really Rules As I Interpret Them. So removing interpretations actually limits tables more than it helps.

Isn't that just a chance to tell the story of how the last survivors perished and then continue the campaign as planned?

The last six catfolk on Golarion enter a tavern.

The campaign then becomes:

STARSTONE II: Electric Boogaloo

I don't understand.

It's not spell strike, it's spell combat. (Which is TWF with your spell.) So you use it to cast True Strike with the wand and then attack with your weapon.

Pre-buffing is the ideal. However, sometimes the better answer is to buff and let the enemy come to you, rather than head to the enemy without buffing. Most combats find characters with a round to get something off. That is a prime time to activate one of your short term buffs if you think you'll need it.

...you mean when it gets around to their next turn, right? If someone takes the entire round deciding what they are summoning and still doesn't know, that sounds fair.

Red herrings should be used cautiously, as players are already likely to go off on unrelated tangents enough WITHOUT the GMs help.

First, I don't think it was "a dodgy path" when there was a FAQ which specified that the rules allow it. It seemed like an endorsement from the PDT.

With a specific clause stating 'this may change, use at your own risk'.

I dealt 90 points of damage to an 11th level barbarian on a crit last night. On his turn, he proceeded to obliterate the creature that did it to him.

AC is nice, but having the HP to survive the hits can work, as long as you take the enemy out before he can chew through it all.

That's why I suggested that I would pay more for scenarios. If you increase the price of all scenarios, the additional revenue is pulled from that as well as from sales of additional published scenarios.

I wonder how many PFS players actually buy the scenarios. There are some like me that have to catch them all. But then there are those who only pick up the one or two scenarios they run themselves. Increasing the price of the PDF may not have that big an effect.
