Actually, the Blue states are the ones that are primarily Democrat, not that it seems to make much of a difference any more.
When I received the pending notice about 2306103 and immediately saw that it was within $10 of $100, I immediately order some Pawn bases and added them to my sidecart. I expected that the new order 2306133 would be shipped with the monthly order and that I would essentially get the bases for free once the $10 shipping credit was applied.
This doesn't seem to be the case. Should I have done something differently or is it possible to still merge these orders?
As I said I am just disappointed and confused at the moment.
Thanks for any info or assistance you can provide.
So I am working on my session prep for the last portion of Fortress of the Stone Giants and as part of that I am inputing all of the NPCs into Hero Lab.
While doing this I discovered that Mokmurian seems vastly over-spent on skills.
To equal the ranks as they are listed in the Anniversary Edition i have spent 164 points. Unfortunately, based on my figuring he should only have a maximum of 126 (assuming that all 11 levels of his favored class bonus are allocated to skills)
Should I assume that this means that the Robe of Runes grants additional skills just as a headband of vast intellect? The text doesn't specify this but I could see it being logical.
I have my first PFS sessions in 2 days where I will be running First Steps 1 & 2.
When I first scheduled the sessions, I was under the misapprehension that the scenarios were designed for 6 players. Since then I discovered that this is not the case. It was too late to limit the first session though since it was already full.
So here is my question: Is it OK to alter the opposition in a PFS scenario (more mooks, add class levels/ HD) or should we run them as is and risk it being a cake walk?
I am going to be running the first PFS Scenarios at my local store in a couple weeks and I am trying to do it up right.
I know that there are occasionally map packs or flip mats used for the PFS scenarios and they aren't always called out in the text. Hence my question:
Are there any other Flip Mats or Map Packs lurking in In Service to Lore or to Delve the Dungeon Deep?
Other than Ambush Sites that is! :)
The shorter the throw the fewer lumens you need.
Projection distance is different for every projector. Most have some zoom range. How much is dependent on the make and model.
Here's a question for you. What size and color of the table you are planning on projecting onto?
Since that is essentially your "screen" that will make a difference.
Sadly there are no local Venture Captains. Pennsylvania is sorely lacking in PFS activity. The closest VC is Washington D.C.
The lack of VCs and PFS is actually part of the reason I'm doing this. I'm a strong believer in complaining = volunteering.
I am currently working with my FLGS to start up local PFS play. At the latest this will be held on Free RPG day but it may be sooner.
I will have 2 slots available (11a-3p and 4p-8p). Ideally, I would like to run the entire First Steps series but that isn't really possible given those constraints.
What I was wondering was this:
Based on your personal experiences with starting local groups should I...
a)... just run First Steps 1 & 2 since they are simple and easily approachable for new players.
(Note: I have read Mark Garringer's post about playing certain PFS adventures in a specific order for maximum fun and immersion and I will be taking that info to heart before making my final decision)
However if you really want to go the projector route:
I cannot tell you how much I admire the Mitsubishi line of projectors.
The main feature you should look for is Lens Shift. This allows you to mechanically alter the light path of the projected image. Keystone correction will achieve the same basic appearance but will seriously degrade your image quality as all it does is digitally change the shape of the projected image. Lens shift is better.
Other than that, you want it as bright and as hi resolution as you can afford.
You should also count on using some sort of mirror to reflect the image onto the table. You can mount a projector vertically but it doesn't manage heat as well in non-horizontal orientations and will end up costing you more in replacement lamps.
If money is no object I would go with the Mitsubishi FL6900U. MSRP is about $15K, street price around $10K.
A cheaper (and lower resolution) option is the XD3200. MSRP $7K, street $3500.
I'm going to be running what is hopefully the last portion of HMM over the next two sessions with my group and I have come across the following situation:
It seems way more logical for the "after Rannick" portion of the module to progress as follows.
2-4 days after the PCs retake the fort Yap arrives at Rannick. Tells PCs about Myriana and asks for help.
PCs pass through Turtleback Ferry and inform them of the situation at Rannick
PCs meet Myriana in the Shimmerglens.
PCs arrive in Turtleback Ferry as the flood starts. Hilarity ensues.
PCs head for Skulls Crossing, kill things.
PCs make their way up Hook Mountain, more things die.
This seems not only to flow more logically (in my mind) from the provided clues but also from the standpoint of the locations on the map.
Any thoughts as to why this might not be optimal or problems I may encounter?
Pretty much just as the subject says:
I am wondering if you can gain the benefit of the Far-Reaching Sight (Full round action to get attacks vs. Touch AC at any range increment(Ultimate Combat, p. 143)) while performing the Dead Shot Deed (Ultimate Combat, p. 11).
They both require full round actions but I don't see why they couldn't stack.
If you really have 9% sales tax where you are, I'm sorry.
According to another thread, we were going to be able to get our subscriptions at Gencon and there would be some mechanism for initiating this on our account subscription page.
Am I blind or has this not been implemented yet?

As long as I've been ordering from them, there's never been a delay like this. Two months?!?!?!? annoying....
Actually, that's pretty much standard for Amazon and non-WotC RPG books in my experience.
I'm an Amazon Prime member and I never get RPGs from them. Too much hassle.
For various reasons, I have never been involved in any organized RPG play and am now really eager to get started in the Pathfinder Society.
I understand that I have to start with a 1st level character but there seem to be two types of events I can play in run by Paizo. The first is either a 1-5 scenario and the other is a 1st level only called something like "First Steps".
Is the first step event an official PFS event or just a an introductory demo type thing?
Any help you can provide would be appreciated...
Just looked through the whole adventure trying to find out what the initial troop complement of Fort Rannick was.
I'm thinking in the 35 to 50 range with 8-12 comprising the long range patrol that the survivors were in.
Any thoughts, suggestions?
I tried searching for my answer first, but either my search-fu is hella weak or this hasn't be covered before...
I was hoping that the new Carrion Crown Adventure Path would have some Pre-Made Characters featuring the new Iconics from the Advanced Player's Guide. But sadly, it seems Paizo has decided to abandon including PCs in the APs.
Have the new Iconics been statted up anywhere online or in print?
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!
I'm gonna jump in here with another recommendation for D20Pro. Why?
-Mac and Linux support.
Yeah, it's pretty useless for non-d20 games but for PFRPG it is the bomb-diggity.

Sorry 'bout that.
When I saw that they still didn't have CON scores I mis-assumed that they didn't change much.
Now I have to re-re- build all of my Dread <undead> creatures for RotRL 2.
Will read all creature types at earliest opportunity.
OK, you think it's logical. We get that. We also know that you aren't going to change your mind.
However, do you or anyone else out there think that adding it to the spell list will radically or minimally unbalance the paladin

I don't see why firing a crossbow for 1d6 damage at range is such a humiliating option.
Because Gandalf never used a crossbow. Also because you are probably significantly less likely to hit with it than you average 1st level fighter/ranger/rogue/bard.

Because it is awesome. And that's why we play fantasy RPGs.
In all seriousness, damage potential and hit percentages being equal, I would much rather have my mages shooting bolts of magical energy than firing a crossbow. It's a flavor thing for me.
I apologize if this has been covered elsewhere. My search fu might be on the weak side.
I was hoping that there might be some way to finagle picking up my long awaited copy of the PFRPG Core Rulebook at Gencon and simultaneously get a free pdf.
I will be subscribing to the line but there is no fun in standing around at Gencon looking at everyone else reading their copy and thinking "won't it be awesome when I go home and get my copy"
Counterspelling should be a class power/option for wizards that doesn't require a specific prepared spell.
It should just be a caster level check or something of the like.
For an example of how this could work check out Monte Cook's Arcana Evolved - Brandish Magical Might.
