I wouldn't even consider the PACG a "deckbuilding game".

Of course, historically, "you" was used for the plural and/or formal, with "thou" being the singular/familiar option.

So:
"If thou failest a check thou must bury a card" - only the player failing buries
"If thou failest a check, you must bury a card" - everyone buries.

Shakespeare's Skulls & Shackles. I love it!

Let's check the FAQ.

Is seeing Frozen mandatory?
Yes. You can't play PACG if you haven't.

Huh. Guess I'll have to watch that then if I want to keep playing. :)

Love the Mass Effect reference!

Alan, all 3 of the box sets are now out of print. However they are making a 400 page hardback core rulebook which combines all 3 and will be available soon.

Here is more info

I'm sure Ms Liz will kindly let us know when it becomes available.

That is great news!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Ah, OK then. :)

Bind additional spirit is now a 4th level class feature for the occultist and is earned every four levels thereafter, to a maximum of four spirits at 16th level.

Wait, unless I've been doing math wrong my entire life, that makes 5 spirits at level 16. I'm okay with that number, but I would like a little confirmation on this, please.

Note the "thereafter". It's not "1 plus 1 per 4 levels", but "1 plus 1 per 4 levels beyond level 4".

The fact remains, is that the elixir of shadewalking is a 3.5 item and not intended to work with everything in the Pathfinder RPG.

Note that Paizo chose not to update and include the elixir in Ultimate Equipment, which would have been the perfect way to introduce it into the Pathfinder rule set. The fact that they didn't points to the intention that it's not supposed to be.

What happens if you examine a location deck that fas a faceup task card on top?

For example, what can Alahazra see with her examination power? The taks card, or the one below?

Or, what happens if you use a spyglass? Can you look at two cards under the task, or is the task one of these two? And if so, can you rearrange the cards? Does that even make sens?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I believe it's also the first time orcs get a major role in a Pathfinder AP. Besides a really small group in A History of Ashes, I believe, they have really been absent.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm wondering. Area D8 is supposed to have four (Large) myrmidon robots in case of reinforcement use. While they would probably fit (if only barely), how is there supposed to be a combat there then. :)

I think you got confused. That is Zaisters idea.

I think it's a pretty awful one. Martials don't need extra nerfs.

Which is absolutely not my experience in playing and running this game in multiple groups.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Will these cards be bundled with retail versions of the set, or only those sold from Paizo?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thanks to all involved parties for this new gift!

Oh, and our first glimpse at the Inner Sea Races cover. Nice!

I know I'll be lobbying for it with my group that's just starting on their final Skull & Shackles adventure.

I'm trying to get opinions—or even an official ruling—on what exactly is a "weapon" in regard of certain effects, and what is not. For example:

PRD: Bardic Performance, Inspire Courage wrote:
An affected ally receives a +1 morale bonus on saving throws against charm and fear effects and a +1 competence bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls.

It's obvious that any attack gets the bonus on the attack roll. But what exactly qualifies as "weapon damage"? Obviously, manufactured weapons. Do natural weapons get the bonus? Do "weapon-like" spells (i.e. those that require an attack roll)? What about "weapon-like" spell-like or supernatural abilities? An alchemist's bomb?

PRD: Discordant Voice feat wrote:
Whenever you are using bardic performance to create a spell-like or supernatural effect, allies within 30 feet of you deal an extra 1d6 points of sonic damage with successful weapon attacks.
Blood of Angels, Blackened oracle curse wrote:
You take a –4 penalty on weapon attack rolls.

Again. What is a "weapon attack"? do these bonuses and penalties apply to natural weapons? Melee and ranged touch attacks made by "weapon-like" spells, spell-like or supernatural abilities?

So you could argue, if the effects apply to all of these, why would they need to be called out specifically as "weapon attack" or "weapon damage" rolls? Wouldn't simply "attack" or "damage" rolls say the same thing? But then, you can take Weapon Focus for natural weapons. We have a FAQ entry that says you can take Weapon Focus for attacks like "ray" or "bomb". It stands to reason that anything that qualifies for Weapon Focus should qualify as a weapon, right?

What do you think?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

My take on this is, DR is not useless in general. My pet peeve with DR is that what really is useless is DR/magic. I mean, there are CR 20 creatures with DR 15/magic. What's that supposed to be good for?

I'm thinking of implementing a house rule that basically says "for each +1 enhancement bonus of the weapon (not counting bonuses from greater magic weapon), reduce the DR by 5 points." In this way, DR/magic can become meaningful again.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

samcro?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Baradin, I must say that the print-on-demand books from Drivethrough are, in fact, "real" books, and can look every bit as awesome as "tradtionally printed" ones. I have several books from them, and they are completely professionally done. I also have a full-color hardcover book of ENworld's previous AP, War of the Burning Sky, which was printed on demand by lulu.com, and it is simply awesome.

I can't wait to get my hands on the Zeitgeist book, and I hope it gets here soon...


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Wow, those are really awesome! I'm getting envious of your players.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Aha! Found it!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Nope, I have that one, it doesn't have a painted cover. Weird.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I'm wondering where the Wayne Reynolds picture on the foldout inlay was taken from. Does anyone recognize it?

Huh, what were those?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That does not change the fact.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Just as a notice: using a held charge of a melee touch spell for an attack of opportunity is certainly an option, but not for ranged touch spells, as "ranged touch attacks cannot be held until a later turn", unless the spell specifically says so.

The version on d20pfsrd.com does not refer just to bows but refers to ranged weapons.

For all those who want something more off the beaten path: go and check out ENworld's ZEITGEIST adventure path (Act One collection available here). This is something very different, and even gets a raving review from Endzeitgeist.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

The success of the games seems to indicate that it's not actually boring if played by the rules.

I like realizing cool ideas and playing with my friends the games we like in their premium version. Premium means we are using all original rules,

I seem to remember you said you are playing with multiple copies of promo cards, such as Poog of Zarongel, and using more than the standard number of locations.

That doesn't sound like "using all original rules" to me.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I could imagine that some of them don't even exist yet.

Backed this in Kickstarter, and I can't wait to get my hands on the hardcover. EZG's review is spot on. This is a great adventure, one I'd love to run.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

It's important to keep in mind the maxim "cards do what they say, cards don't do what they don't say."

So, if it says "a check" or "any check", it means any check, by any character. If it says "your check", it means your character's check, and only that. If it says "at your location" or "at another locations", if means exactly that, if it doesn't say any of these, it means at any location. And so forth. Just look at the text.

Oh maybe I get to be in front of the queue for a change this time. My October stuff is shipping with this month's order (it had been returned to Paizo for reasons unknown). Let's hope!

I'm kinda with the others here. I understand modifying your box for fun (I've done it too for increased difficulty, though I normally play with the default), but adding Poogs is just going to make things a cakewalk.

Next stop: remove those pesky enchanters!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

You know that it's UltraPRO who produces this additional stuff, not Paizo, right?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

With Poog, it makes especially no sense to use more than of him, because he's a unique named character, and you will notice that all named character only ever have one card.

Should I be worried now that my October order, shipped on October 16, still hasn't arrived here in Germany? It's been more than 6 weeks now. It used to be that orders would arrive within 10-14 days, as estimated ("Estimated 6 to 10 business days in transit"). Anyone else still waiting?
