If it matter's, in the My Subscriptions page, the Paladin deck is showing in the section "Items shipping with a later subscription shipment" rather than in the "Expected to ship early August 2015" section.

Thanks for letting me know—I'm told it should be fixed now.

D'oh! Yes, Wednesday!

Short term answer: Stay tuned for today's Paizo blog.

Longer-term answer: We will likely be reevaluating all the subscriber tags later in the year.

My understanding is that WizKids will always *try* to replace returns with the same mini, and only default to "one of the same rarity" if they just don't have any of the original mini left.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Redeeming a card only lets you ignore the Corrupted trait on it. And if a card is not on the Redemption card, it can't be redeemed.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Cards don't "move" in this game—only characters.

And of course, for an outsider it reflects the popularity and the sale numbers of the game.

Estimating even relative sales of a game by looking at BGG ratings would be much like estimating the severity of global climate change by looking out your window.

So Blessing of the Dawnflower is Kyra's Iconic Heroes P card. Its essentially a Blessing of Sarenrae with some kick for clerics. It also has the Sarenrae trait.

Kyra on 3 of her 4 role cards has a Power that does something cool when she plays a Blessing of Sarenrae.

Strictly speaking RAW Blessing of the Dawnflower is not a Blessing of Sarenrae so it would not trigger these powers on Kyra.

My question is was this intentional or as Dawnflower is essentially a fancy version of Blessing of Sarenrae and since it has the Sarenrae trait, should it count for these powers.

Mostly a flavor question.

Thanks!

Added to FAQ.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Added a rule about blessing names and traits.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Added Amaryllis's role card to Sorcerer and Arabundi's role card to Ranger. Also updated this resolution on the same card.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Added Adamantine Poniard +1 to Ranger.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Correct. Check the Paizo blog each Tuesday as we reveal the remaining four.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

We haven't made them available yet. (We'll have an update on that soon.)

Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild Guide wrote:

Promo Cards

Each Adventure Card Guild character’s Class Deck may contain exactly one copy of each of its class’s Owner-associated promo card from the Iconic Heroes product line, indicated with a “Iconic Heroes” banner in the top left and a set indicator of P in the top right.

For example, Agna may add one copy of the Teapot and one copy of Biter to her Ranger Class Deck, because those cards have Harsk listed as their Owner, and Harsk is in the Ranger Class Deck. Agna may not have any other promo cards in her Class Deck. She may select the Teapot as an item deck upgrade when she gets one. Harsk, as per the Owner rules in the rulebook, can select the Teapot as part of his starting deck. Promo cards may be added to a Class Deck box at the start of a scenario.

Organizers may add up to 12 promo cards to the game box, but no more than than one copy of any one card.

There is current no legal way to play Ranzak or Ekkie in PFSACG play.

Sounds like you need a bigger booth! It might not eliminate the line, but could shorten it.

Also, it would be great if Paizo could work with some of the exhibiting 3rd party companies that are in the Pathfinder Ecosystem to have their booths adjacent to or part of a larger Paizo booth.

Neither of these things are possible in the foreseeable future.

On the first point, Gen Con's exhibitor hall is very popular—the entire show floor is generally fully reserved a year in advance. Because Gen Con wants to be able to host a lot of different vendors, they limit the exhibitor space that any one company can have, and Paizo is already at that limit.

On the second point, Gen Con, like many other large cons, has a "priority" system that rewards their best customers by allowing them to choose their booth space first. Priority factors in things like the number of years you've been exhibiting, the size of your booth, your sponsorship level, and so on. We can't elevate the priority of those other companies, and we can't afford to set aside our own booth space for them (see point 1).

Moved to RPG homebrew.

Reading nonsense and getting insulted at the same time is not very nice. Some community rules do apply in this forum. As you wrote some time ago, it is a friendly place for discussion...

Should I encourage Andrew to write more insulting words about me?

You said you were going to flag his post—that's the right thing to do. Then a moderator will decide whether he has broken the guidelines or not (and the moderators may or may not agree with you). Fighting back is not the right thing to do.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Sorry, no. There *is* a good reason we haven't provided them so far, but I can't share it yet.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Nothing to add at this time.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

There are still a couple of cards that have issues in discussion, and a couple of these issues are (like a good monster) really hairy, with tendrils that reach into a lot of strange places.

If you would like your feedback to be considered, make sure you post it in the playtest forum.

Added Theruk Nul and Dismissal.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Huh. I just watched a pre-Avengers Twilight Zone episode last night that had him in it.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

While it may be something downstream from you, I nonetheless suggest you make sure you're using an up-to-date version of Adobe Reader.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

The text on the AP card is the "default setting." It allows people with consistent play groups to manage their box in the traditional way.

Non-traditional options are presented in Guide, in the "Preparing the Game Box" sidebar on page 9. These options don't conflict with the text on the AP card—it works in conjunction with them.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Man. How the heck did I do that?!?

As usual, you are correct.

Just, you know, make sure you read all the Armies, in case some of them *don't* work that way.

Apparently Troop is a 4th new, not covored by the rule book, Support type.

We're sneaky that way. The rules for the troop card type appear on the back of the troop card.

From this blog post, a few questions spring to mind:

1) "...the enemy army immediately pillages the location deck for any remaining boons before heading off to maraud another open location..."

Is that the real intent of the Armies? Does that mean they should be FAQed to shuffle into "ANOTHER random location" ?

Mechanically, you may have several different cards that each represent the army, but conceptually, it's one big army that you keep encountering all over the place.

The Cohorts: I thought when you banish a Cohort, you're supposed to remove it from the game? Does that mean these cards are supposed to be one-off, kinda like the Genie ally loot in S&S?

For cohorts that have only "banish" powers, yes.

If your Stealth skill is based on your Dexterity skill, and you are using your Stealth skill, you are also using your Dexterity skill.

But if you don't have the Stealth skill on your character card (so you're just using a d4), then you are using *only* your Stealth skill; your Dexterity doesn't come into play.

If VOs ask for convention support through PFS channels, and that con is not pure RPG, odds are good that support will include a stack of convention promos.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Several Alchemical items (Alchemist's Fire, Noxious Bomb, Liquid Ice, etc.) allow you to attempt combat checks that have the Attack trait... but they're Dexterity or Ranged rather than Strength, Melee, or Arcane, so they don't help Crowe here.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Temptation of Big Die *is* our convention promo for the rest of the year, but subscribers get all of the promos associated with a given set.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Added Dagon's Jaws.

We've inserted Land of the Blind packs into all of our remaining copies of S&S AD4.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

We're not charging for it—it's supposed to be free!

We sent out a *lot* of copies to distributors, who were supposed to pass them on to retailers along with their shipment of S&S Adventure Deck 6. If your retailer can't get you one, we'll send you one.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

So we think the concept is sound. So we're looking to add this to "Attempt the Check," as a new paragraph in between "look at the card’s powers and immediately do whatever it says there" and "After you attempt the check, deal with any effects that were triggered by the check":

If a power allows you to automatically defeat or acquire a card, you may use it at this time. Using such a power counts as succeeding at all checks required to defeat or acquire the card. You may not use such a power on any card that does not have a check to acquire or defeat, or on any card that has a check you're not allowed to succeed at.
