Boots of Striding and Springing used to be really really good. Now they are not but it has to do with the rule of cool. They can't be cool again until they do what they used to do, but because of how edition nerfing works, things that are OP in one edition become useless in the next. Look up what the boots did back in second edition if you don't already know, they used to be amazing, like pre-nerf crane wing amazing.
Or Monk Speed
your also using 3.5 Skill points by the looks of it ...
every level you gain X + int skill points
Not X*int anymore
so a bard gets 6 + Int skill points
Ranks + Trained + Stat Mod + Misc stuff (Racial / Trait / feat etc)
Humans get 1 extra rank per level
I must ask the obvious question just to be sure (and to cover the bases)
if A then there's not much you can do as Unconscious from HP Damage is as helpless as if you were asleep
if B then your Golden and 100% in the Right to appeal the death
and I would also have the other player appeal as well
Why does the con GM not get the convention boon AND the proposed organizational boon? He's doing both after all.
this is how I was thinking too
Admittedly I didn't look at the points but the concept made sense
also my recommendation would be the point based ones be from the previous Season ....while the Con based ones would pull from the current pool of Boons
Hypothetical Example -THIS IS JUST THROWING RACES OUT-
Season 6 GM Boons
Point Based Boons
This way we gain the best of both worlds Con GM's get their Cookie ... and Other GM's get there Cookies based on GMing at FLGS's
one thing we don't have is Rotational information
I think Last year was the 1st year where racials were handed out as Event GM Rewards as a standard - feel free to correct me if I'm wrong
I think we have 7 Retired Race boons (Tengu, Aasimar, Tiefling, Wayang, Kitsune, Nagaji, Damphir) currently ... not counting limited #'s like Fetchling and Goblin
we have 5 in circulation now (4 Elemental + Suli)
I like the Idea ... but TBH it would only work if the elemental races filter out and a new batch filters in - which would be optimal
but due to VO NDA We (Most of us) Just dont know whats coming ... and if whats coming would be valid
I can tell you from personal experience a big problem with the regular game days is lack of volunteers I believe a system like this would help promote volunteers at game stores and prevent some of the longer running GM's from hitting burnout due to no volunteers
is there an Answer - Im sure there is
"You have spent enough time in Osirion that it is now like a second home. You gain an additional trait from page 30-31 of the Pathfinder player Companion: People of the sands. Write the Selected trait on the Line below . Include this Chronicle sheet along with your Records for the Character who gains this Boon.
Instead of increasing the selling price of Relics from Ancient Osirion, The Forign Opportunist Trait grants you a +5 bonus on Day job checks made during any scenario that has 1 or more encounters that take place in Osirion"
Note that pg. 30-31 are Campaign traits ... and the best one IMHO is one that gives you a +1 disable device/ makes it a class skill and you gain trapfinding like a rogue
I don't disagree however I trust that Paizo or PFS would make an announcement that free RPG Day stuff was being made 1 credit
we aren't dealing with an MMO here where Stealth nerfs are common
furthermore ... a change of that magnitude would likely be started at GenCon ... rather than 2 months before
Campaign Coordinators have always been very good about being very crystal clear when they make decisions of this magnitude
As far as I can tell, at present, what has changed is that the Free RPG Day modules no longer grant +2 to GM ranking...?
Pretty sure that's not the case for a couple of reasons
1 ) I was over 150 (158 or so IIRC) before the bug hit ... now Im just getting back to 140 so the math doesn't work (I only have 6 that aren't showing GM+2)
2) that would be a fairly significant change and I would trust that we would be alerted to that fact if it indeed were to happen ... not a situation like this that leaves us guessing
Add to list of suspectedWe Be Goblins Too
Dawn of the Scarlet Sun
Risen from the Sands
I had a scenario that wasn't showing up for me period
after some probing and trying other things I THINK if an event does not have a reported date it will not show up in the system
you may look at trying to duplicate that on your end
also while at PaizoCon I spoke to CS about this issue and was told this is a display issue on our end ... apparently their end still shows everything

Removed a post. Let's not be insulting or jumping to conclusions. If you're still having problems with your credit being reported incorrectly, please email customer service.
the statment of "Contact Customer service" is worrisome
can we get conformation that were to the point where Manual fixes are required for this ?
or is there still some hope that the database can be restored
Mine was Create pit on the pyramid ..
the pyramid is still shuffling in that hole - everyday I'm shuffling shuffeling
yes ... all Modules and AP's are not listing as +2's ... Eyes of the 10 part 1 however is showing as a +2
Invalidating tactics -
PC's know the Next Room is Occupied by a spellcaster - Decide to Wait APL +4* 10 Min for the casters 10min / level spells and under to dissipate
another Great example of Invalidated Tactics
a particular Season 2 Scenario where a Single Initiative Roll can Completely waste an NPC's 1st 2 Turns (True Strike / Hand of the apprentice only having a 30 ft Range)
I think that the definition of "Invalidation" might be in question here or maybe I'm just off
theres a Quote from Roadhouse
"Remeber .. Be Nice, until its time to Not be nice"
Basically ... Run as written Until you you Cant anymore ... or
Remember your NPC's are intelligent .. if the tactics say they "Charge the PC's" ... would they still Charge them across a Spiked pit spell .. or an Obsidian Flow ? (Regardless if they are physically able to or not)
So heres my set up
8:00 AM – 01:00 PM #5–25: Vengeance at Sundered Crag (Player)
Saturday, July 5
Sunday, July 6
Actually your Wrong
Regardless of the bonus ... Ghost Touch Amulet may not be magical but it doesnt matter
tho I can see the argument about Ghost Salt and Crits ... interesting
there are only 2 scenarios I have vowed Id never run again ...
Master of the Fallen Fortress
and now Destiny of the sands Part 3
I ran it at a local Convention ... maybe it was the Characters I had
now Normally I can deal with heavens Oracle's and not have an issue
but in this Scenario I had one with Mythic Color Spray ... and Watched that character Steamroll all but the last Encounter
the encounters were 3 walkthroughs ... and then a stone wall
the Young Behir .... the Chase Scene ... the hound encounter were all 1 rounded by a 30ft Color spray cone of - 8 HD to determine effect
my concern for this scenarios is that certain character types that already shine now have the ability to Sparkle Radiantly into blindness ... Im currently playing in Wrath of the Rightous and I can say now that Mythic vs Non Mythic is so OP it s not funny
so sure I kinda had fun ... but I cant believe that my other players had fun ...
I think this may have something to do with why you dont see this one offered online that much
had a situation come up last night when I ran this at an event and it actually had me dumbfounded
when the group got to the Guardian Room and Anemorphous became trapped one of my players had the Bright Idea to use the Dust of Disjunction on the prison that Anemorphous was in, thinking that a 13 lvl wizard would be more value than a staggered Guardian... which I admit has a certain appeal
what would you have done ?

the only way to end a "Permenant spell" is to destroy it ... I am fully behind the Idea of dragging corpses around with you but Unfortunatly I would have to treat it as a consumable based on how PFS Ruled Permenant spell effects functioned at the end of a scenario

PFS has that part covered ... animated dead do not carry over from scenario to scenario
Jeff Merola wrote:
you have validated my point entirely ..
and now continue with your argument - where does it say that it doesn't exist for corpses ... because I know of nothing regarding that
they aren't considered "Loot" as mentioned in the PFSGOP as there is no value to them ... so again - whats the problem
yes I realize that ... you cant cast the spell without the onyx ... or the corpse .... the component is consumed the target is animated ... they operate hand in hand ... its still the same mentality
as long as you have a corpse to target
so by the argument that you cant have something with no cost follow the thought back
intact is a nitpick ...I challenge you go out ... dig up a skeleton ... tell me .. is it "intact" or are the bones separated from each other -
this is purly hate against the spell - and that hate infests these boards I don't like the Idea of banning it from society play but if it happens it happens but under the argument of evil .. should we ban infernal healing ? Negative energy channeling ? its all in the same basket
answer honestly - does allowing someone to animate dead ruin your play experience ? or does your incessant complaining about him using it ruin his and others play experience
then who is being a jerk ...
Personally if the player went above and beyond to catalog rare and unique bones he collected ... as well as made a believable attempt to store the bones (Portable hole or bag of holding type 5 ) whats the problem other than the spell is hated
Bones have no listed cost period ... does that mean you cant get it ? I guess if you go down that line than other spells that have material components without a listed cost you cant get regardless of spell component pouches ... "you want to cast fireball ? sorry but bat guano mixed with sulfur has no listed cost so you cant have it" its an absurd mentality
Quickly - No ... eventually - yes
the thing your forgetting is you may replay or GM for Credit (a second time) a Single Scenario per GM Star
allowing credit for a total of 3 Times on a single scenario per GM star
will this Change - Unlikely
there is a POSSIBILITY that the GM Star thing may become per Year but it is only a possibility as of this moment
