Can it be 2016 already?

I'm trying to understand the numbering scheme of these special scenarios, but I'm confused. #5-99 was listed as "kicking off season 6", and it seems #6-99 does the same for season 7. while #6-00 looks more like it belong to season 5, and #7-00 to season 6 ("sky key"). Am I the only one who can't make sense of that? what gives?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I have two questions regarding this adventure and its sequel.

Does Paizo still plan to releases them publicly? If so, is there a schedule?

When were these scenarios fire released in their limited way?

Thanks

This is precisely my suggestion, if that wasn't clear.

Another idea, as you already have "one concentration per rank" within your Lore skill, is to have each Unchained Lore topic be a concentration gained from putting a rank in the closest-relevant Knowledge skill.

I wasn't sure if that's what you meant.

Interesting idea for the unchained lore skill, I'll have to think about that.

As you have removed one of the main "adventuring" functions of Knowledge, consider reclassifying what's left over as "background" skills.

Thus, Lore will be the skill you described.

Everything else is just Knowledge (focus) of some sort.

Yes, I have classified all Knowledge skills as background skills, they have no other uses any more.

That is also why I don't want the new skill to be a Knowledge skill.

The new Lore skill from Unchained is something different, it's just very specialized knowledge and definitely a background skill. "My" Lore is an adventuring skill.

I could keep Lore for my skill, and rename the Unchained skill, but I'm classifying all of that under Knowledge. I think the mechanics are also different.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I've indeed considered "Monster Lore" but since it also includes the hazard identification from Knowledge (dungeoneering) and Knowledge (nature), the term isn't really broad enough. I've also considered "Adventure Lore" but it seems too broad.

Hm, "Ecology"... might be onto something

(By the way, my whole skill redesign is linked here. If you want to get to the PDFs, scroll down the linked forum thread to the last post containing an attachment, ignoring the German squabble.)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Something like that isn't bad, but I explicitly want it separate from the other Knowledge skills.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

In my house rule collection for my next campaign I have defined a new skill that extracts the identification of monsters and hazards from the various Knowledge skills and consolidates them in one skill. If you're interested in the details of the mechanics, here's the PDF.

I had intended to name this new skill "Lore". However, now there's the new background skill system from Pathfinder Unchained that I also want to use, and it also introduces a skill named "Lore".

So now I need a new name for my skill, but I can't come up with something that makes sense and sounds good. Any ideas?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Yes, that was a funny internet theory, based on a picture in the 3.5 Player's Handbook of Jozan, the iconic cleric of Pelor with a caption saying "Jozan casts symbol of pain." The idea was, that this is an evil spell, and as a cleric of a good god, Jozan would not be able to cast the spell, and, well you can see where this is going...

A few weeks ago. The job is posted on the Paizo site now, although I expect they are already interviewing the short list at GenCon.

Thanks. Interesting.

wow... the AP no one was asking for. Why not just play Call of C'Thulu instead of getting to lvl 20 and curb stomping a Great Old One like a BAWS?

Certainly not no-one.

During the Adventure Path Q&A seminar, The Strange Eons Adventure Path was announced! This will follow the Hell’s Vengeance AP and will be available August, 2016.

This will be a very Lovecraftian themed AP. Focusing on the Old gods.

Will have amnesiac players.
Will involve a lot of travel.
Dreamlands may be explored, meeting famous authors of books, such as the necronomicon, etc…

Back matter will have a lot of lovecraftian details.
Will explore new continents in Golarion!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I like it already. Great name!

C'mon Paizo, landscape GM screens are easier to see and reach over!

For players, too, though.

My money is on something focusing on bringing the new psychic magic rules into play, so maybe Vudra.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Remember that, even if this is allowed, undead are immune to nonlethal damage and thus an undead kineticist can never accept any burn. I guess that can make being a kineticist... difficult


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

The next one might be the red-and-black one, when you're actually working for Cheliax.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Here's some glue for you.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

So, about that Raz artwork...?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

OK then :)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I gotta come back to this and ask, is the artwork for Raz new, or has it, been used before, like most class deck character artwork?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Sad to see the web fiction go, even though I never read any as they were published on the blog, but only once they came out in ePub form. So I'm hoping the ePub collection will be complete soon; after reading this thread (and checking the Pathfinder Wiki) I want read about Appleslayer, too.

... 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.

Shouldn't that last part be "a check you're not allowed to automatically succeed at"? Or are there indeed checks where you are not allowed to succeed, like, at all? That doesn't sound like it would make a lot of sense.

Considering that Hell's Rebels hasn't been published so far, that's difficult to say. But watch out for the Hell's Rebels Player's Guide which will be released next month along with the first part of the campaign. The Player's Guide will certainly have the kind of information you're looking for.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Deck 5 actually for the Elites, not deck 4.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Ok, thanks!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I'm quite certain we'll see the revised classes going forward in adventures. I am quite sure actually that for the summoner we will only see the unchained verion in the future.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Hm, can you please check this again? The packages that still have not shipped are still listed as already shipped in October, and I have the bad feeling that this might prevent your system from actually sendng them to shipping.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Thanks Hawkmoon, that is what I assumed, but I wanted to make sure.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Thanks for the update. Just one thing I noticed: it still says "First printing, May 2015" on the contents page.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Somehow I'm begun wondering if I'm doing this the right way. The Cure spell instructs you to shuffle your deck. I've been playing it that I retrieve cards from the discard pile, shuffle them into the deck, then recharge or discard the Cure spell, depending on the recharge check result.

Now I've read in some FAQ resolution (I think on Radillo's spell recycling ability) that certain things have to happen immediately of which recharging might posible be one. So I might have to attempt the recharge immediatly on playing the spell, resulting in either the spell being recharged before shuffling, and thus shuffled into the deck, or the spell being discarded and possibly retrieved from the discard pile and shuffled into the deck.

I admit I'm confused now, what is the correct way to play?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Indeed it is, thank you.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Ok, then. :)

I'm still giving Gary the benefit of the doubt. The new update shows he is still comitted to finishing the project. That is good enough for me, although indeed, he could have been more communicative before. But I dont mind if it takes another year. It's not as if I don't have any adventures left to play.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Thanks for looking into this. I hope it works out. :)


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

That sounds awesome. I can't wait to play that adventure!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

If a bane has multiple checks to defeat, such as "Combat X, then Combat Y", and I fail at the first check, do I still have to attempt the second check, even though I can't defeat the bane anymore at that time?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

My order is showing weird statuses. The order is divided into three shipments, and the first shipment containing just the Occult Adventures hardcover has already shipped on Tuesday. However, the other shipments are also listed as shipped but shipped on Oct 24, 2014 (even with their own package number). I have not received any shipment emails or PDF access. Probably something went wrong with the Class Deck Preordes which are listed in the order but as canceled. Or it might be the Gygax Magazines since I already got PDF access to those, maybe even on that date...

I hope the fact that the other shipments are already listed as shipped does not hold up my shipment. It is, owever, unusual in my experience for multiple shipments to ship so far apart.

Can you please check the order?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Just ridiculous.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

That's weird, because my July shipment was just modified, after I first got the authorization mail on Thursday, with the Ekkie mat being added to it. ("An item was incorrectly left in your sidecart during the subscription order generation process.") I hope this does not impact the shipping of my subscription stuff. I'd very much rather have the mat shipping later.
