The theme here? I like creative solutions to problems that aren't too unbalancing. These all fall under it, though it harms others' suspension of disbelief of sense of 'proper' rules interpretation.

Your FACE harms proper rules interpretation. :D

Instead, I think we will see long term participants that had drifted from PFS coming back to participate in the Core Campaign, and we might see new players that would otherwise be turned away from PFS (from the financial burden they might feel) be instead directed to Core Campaign.
How would those who don't PFS even learn of this? Those individuals are largely long gone.

You don't seem to be paying attention to the rest of the discussion, with numerous GMs chiming in on their eagerness to jump back into the Core campaign.

Ninja Edit: And do you still get favoured class bonuses? I would assume not since those aren't in the core if I recall.

The only favored class bonuses you will be able to choose are the hit point or skill point.

The novelty of this will wear off quickly compared to just simply making a blanket one replay of everything for everyone.

Hashtag: not fawning, mostly yawning.

Methinks you are underestimating the GMs who are tired of gunslingers and summoners.

I'm happy this mode is here, but odds are my players won't like it. It does eliminate some power gamer problems, but overall most of my players want the power game stuff.

That's perfectly fine, the current PFS campaign will still be around for them to go nuts in. :)

When you say "martial" and "caster", yes.

Every one of those options involves either using a weapon or casting spels.

Any time someone uses the term 'basically' I find that they are employing extreme hyperbole and that the item in question is NOT basic in any sense of the word.

To cast a spell, you must have the ability to cast spells. Fighters don't get that ability. You can rule it however you want, that's my ruling.

Quote:
A spell is a one-time magical effect. Spells come in two types: arcane (cast by bards, sorcerers, and wizards) and divine (cast by clerics, druids, and experienced paladins and rangers). Some spellcasters select their spells from a limited list of spells known, while others have access to a wide variety of options.

Whether or not you know someone somewhere in a 100 ft. radius circle around you shot an arrow is irrelevant.

But it IS relevant to the fact that you can only Sneak Attack such a target outside the normal range once, without Sniper Goggles.

But he knows you are present, and to keep moving and looking to ruin the conditions that allowed the sniper to get that long-range sneak attack.

An invisible creature in the water displaces water, revealing its location. The invisible creature, however, is still hard to see and benefits from concealment.

You are the first table I have ever heard of encountering a bandersnatch simulacrum in this scenario.

Were all those other tables (my own play through included) 'run wrong'?

I've heard of other TPK's in the Kurshu encounter using a different tactic for limited wish.
Have you heard of another group which survived a magicbane bandersnatch?

No. But why does that matter? They were playing hard mode. GM made a choice.

End of story.

Indeed. The GM made a choice.

As long as the GM takes responsibility for that choice, and doesn't try to use excuses like 'the scenario said best use' and 'it isn't against the rules to use a magicbane bandersnatch' to imply he didn't have alternatives, I'm fine with it. I make decisions about how to handle scenarios every time I run. Sometimes those decisions lead to or away from TPKs. And obviously, I would have made a decision away from this particular TPK. Perhaps towards another one, perhaps not.

Here is a quote from the GM who ran the Scenario in response to "Run As Written does not absolve you of taking responsibility for making that choice."

"The scenario author gave a very intelligent creature a limited wish. That may well be problematic scenario design but there is nothing in the rules that prevents it from being used this way."

Responding directly to the GM in question.

"The fact you CAN do something does not mean you SHOULD. You still made the choice to run the scenario that way. The fact that the author left that option available doesn't change the burden of responsibility."

There is a difference between writing "uses her mobility, spells, and abilities to best effect" and writing "simulacrum up a bandersnatch to murder the party".

Finally I think that if this is the legal tactic and I saw that someone else went through this process and got this result I wouldn't question it at that point. So now it is optimal because anyone else that goes through this complaint process is just whining.

Even if it is a legal tactic, it is just that. A legal tactic. Not the legal tactic.

I personally will never even consider using it when I finally get to run The Waking Rune. It won't be fun for me, it won't be fun for my players, and THAT is what i GM for.

To see my players having fun.

How is the GM abusing his chair when he hits things the player never told him were inviolate?

I tend to ask if it is alright to include new things in character backstories. Most of my favorite GMs have done the same. I usually leave backgrounds wide open and only object to changes that specifically alter something I intentionally put in there.

I personally enjoyed Rakuen Tsuihou: Expelled From Paradise, but I doubt it would be something that non-anime fans would like. Freehold would love it.

Rie Kugimiya voicing the female lead was a big point for me. Love her voice.

I too put everything on my ITS regardless of cost. You were absolutely following the rules enforcing it, but cold weather gear would probably not have been the battle I chose to fight over it.
