When we get a ton of LGBT representation then I'll understand. Until then just let us be happy that we finally get some characters that look and love like us.
I don't begrudge you the other 99% of straight characters in RPG products.

I love the game and have no issue subbing to get the releases but earlier I was told back then on here I couldn't start with the Addon deck, so I ended up picking both up at my FLGS to save on shipping since the main game wouldnt have made it right outside of my budget. Since then the policy has changed as per Vic.
Now I'm lucky that a friend was able to snag a Fire Sneeze for me at Gencon, but after calling my local store they never got any Poogs nor do their distributer have any to send.
Part of my enjoyment of this and any other card game is the promos, and the Poog card is proving hard to impossible. I'm happy to sub to ensure the rest, but only if I can somehow get the Poog card through normal channels (Paizo/FLGS). If not I'll just buy everything local and save money and forget the whole promo/subscription idea.
It's just that frustrating for me.
So I'm about to teach not only my main group, but our boardgame group, and some complete game noobs the rules.
I just sat down the other day with one of the people who are completely new to the PF core concepts (ability scores, dungeon running, RPGs in general, etc) and found that teaching the game wasn't as smooth as I had hoped, even though I find it well designed to say the least.
I'm now listening to Know Direction's excellent podcast coverage of the Gencon seminar with Lisa, Vic, and Mike and now I'm wondering if you guys could out the 4 page demo document up as a download in order to aid us teachers in the process of teaching the core concepts. I think it would be a great help.
Thoughts? Vic? :)
Exactly. But then I always prefer not to jump to negative conclusions.
This is a good option, because honestly the Iconics shouldn't be behind a rarity wall, or subject to people's value proposition, as they being Iconics should be available easily and readily.
Yes I could not figure out why that feat would be in any way helpful for a regular caster. I'm glad I'm not crazy.
I don't see mention of a sub requirement at the Help page

I'm in the middle of watching Know Direction's (hi Ryan & Perram!) excellent video coverage of the Emerald Spire All-Star panel feom Gencon 2013, and it hit me in the gut with a crit: any way we could get some words in this product from the Immortal Frank "Red Box" Mentzer on role playing tips for the new player? Heck he basically volunteered 18 mins into the video!
What a coup that would be!
Link to the excellent video. What a product Emerald Spire will be!
Basically going Osirion Human Conjurer(teleportation) focusing on Int/Con/Dex, probably lowering my Str/Cha a bit, as I love the idea of an older physically weaker, cantankerous "Egyptian" wizard archetype.
Can I buy scrolls before first play session if I have the cash from creation? I think have a comprehend language would be such a smart plan (thank you).
Thanks so much, so far so awesome! I have until next Thursday so this should be a fun puzzle! I'm not hyper connected with ultimate optimization, but I'd like to be useful even if I want to take a couple flavorful if not perfect choices.
I keep bouncing back and forth between an 18 and 19 Int. I don't mind a couple slightly lowered scores in Str/Cha, and my first ability score bump would get me a 20 if I went that route.
If not I could keep a pretty safe:
With no negatives...hmmm.
This will be my second PFS play next week. I played one session with a paladin last year but since then have moved cross country and settled in.
Anything strategic I should be aware of that is wizard specific? Tips? Warnings? I'm feeling a bit exposed due to the lack of armor and HP and don't want to be an instakill.
Also, I recall a PFS "cheat sheet" for things all plays should be aware of and responsible for (I.e. buying a CLW wand ASAP, dealing with swarms, etc). Anyone have a link to those resources?
I just subscribed starting with Adventure Pack 2 as I already have the base set and character add-on. I got Poog from my local game shop already so my understanding is that I will get every promo except for Fire Sneeze because I've missed it already? Is that correct? Any other way to get Fire Sneeze? Thanks.
I'm wondering this too as I've started my sub with Adventure Pack 2. Any chance all current promos will be stuffed in the shipment in October? I didn't have the funds to make it to Gencon. :(
I would like to see "Copyright 2025, Paizo Publishing".
This. So hard.
I love this thread so people can vent and suggest, but I have ZERO interst in a new edition when there is so much yet to explore in Golarion. If I need to buy new books for a new edition, I'd rather just invest in a totally new game altogether and keep what I have with Pathfinder. No thank you, dear Paizo.
Thanks for this. I so appreciate those who put their thinking caps on and contributed. Makes for such a fun thread.

Fantastic news. I knew they were in B3 but as its not Golarion specific I was always sorta hoping. Cheers! How odd that such a little thing would cause me to grin like a fool.
Thanks for Wrath of the Righteous (so far so amazing) and Mythic Adventures!
My question that I've been meaning to ask for ages and I keep forgetting:
Do the Animal Lords (specifically the Cat Lord and Mouse Lord from Tome of Horrors, et al) reside anywhere in Golarion? If so any clues as to where, why, or a tidbit on their doings?
The Cat Lord has always been a major D&D touchstone for me (along with Graz'zt), and I'd love to know he's part of Golarion canon.
Thanks as always!
From page 7 of the 5.0 guide:
A character can not be younger than the minimum age listed on Table 7–1 of the Core Rulebook, or listed on Table 5–1 of the Advanced Race Guide, and must be younger than venerable, as listed on Table 7–2 of the Core Rulebook and Table 5–4 of the Advanced Race Guide.
Middle Age seems fine. It just doesn't alter ability scores.
Looking to make a spooky middle aged human conjurer for my second PFS character.
Trying to keep my sources down as right now I only have Core, and Advanced Player's Guide (and a few others sources), but I'm willing to buy something if it's essential to my build.
Will middle age screw me up or can it be worked around? I don't see him buff (STR as a dump), but I do still want to try and keep my DEX and CON respectable given PFS needs.
Just looking for guidelines as I've never built a spellcasters for PFS, as my only other character is a paladin.
Thank for any guidance in advance!

Well said. We finally get a bit of representation in Fantasy RPGs and there are those here acting like it's some sort of affrontery, or offensive.
Thanks for making me feel like I don't belong in a community.
Very enthused for the AP after reading the Player's Guide. I'm of the mind set that APs are by their very nature "railroady" and tend to play better that way. I'm certain not everyone agrees with this, but nevertheless I'm quite happy with the traits and how they will resolve themselves later on. Fortunately, I share tables with others that trust in the story, and do not mind a fair bit of assumption and GM guidance. I feel every style deserves equal play and support.
I will say that there are more and more posters lately in this community that are not representing themselves well at all. Overall I'm very proud of this set of forums, but I'm of a mind to give some folks who cannot post with respect some time off to think about how Paizo boards should read.

I googled this because of the mention in the latest Know Direction podcast, and now I'm in lust/love.
Exciting times again for MMOs (finally), and I'm equally excited by both EQN and of course PFO's approach to the game type.
Seems as though EQN is gambling that an action MMO will catch on. While I'm enthused as I'm far more a console gamer than anything else (and this is sure to be announced for Playstation 4), there will be a major MMO/pc gamer backlash I'm sure.
Interesting days ahead!
