Thanks, I will check that out tonight!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That looks interesting. I'll have to check out the early episodes!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Actually, the Numeria campaign setting book has rules for mutants.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

If you want to use the antipaladin as a secondary class, it's very easy to extrapolate form the paladin listing.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Oh, that's sad. Is this the first time we're hearing about this?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Regarding the new action economy: am I missing something here, or does this basically make everyone move 50% faster in the long run?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

OK, thanks, good to know.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Will this contain material that is not in Ultimate Psionics?

Is apocrypha only a base set with adventure packs limited to one adventure path?

Or will it be like PACG a card game where every other year a new adventure path will be released?
One-hit-wonder or game series?

I guess that will depend entirely on the success of the game that is now in Kickstarter.

What is the future of PACG? How many more AP are in this moment planned ?

WotR is in print, next AP WIP...

The next AP will probably be revealed at PaizoCon.

Nothing changes the fact that if Paizo were to send you a coupon you could redeem for a game anywhere in Germany, that coupon would still be merchandise that would have to be declared, with the full value of the game—probably even at German market price—and would be susceptible to the Einfuhrumsatzsteuer (what you call "import tax", and which is effectively the Mehrwertstuer, i.e. VAT for imported goods sold abroad).

Actually, it doesn't. Compare this

The rogue must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. A rogue cannot sneak attack while striking a creature with concealment.

with this:

Well I play a bard at 13th level now, and I don't think I need a magic weapon to survive, or actually a weapoon at all. I can count the number of attack rolls I made with a weapon in the whole campaign on one hand. I do have a magic armor, but only because because it was available; it's only a +1, though, and I have an amulet of natural armor +2 and a ring of protection +2. However, at this point in the campiagn, any serious opponent attaking me will hit me anyway, regardless of my, whether it is AC is 21 or 16 if I had none of theses magic items. So saying "everybody absolutely needs these items to survive or function" is somewhat exaggerated.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thanks again, Kevin, Woran and Paz, for the insight. That helps a lot in understanding how this all works.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thanks for the answers, guys! So, I see, campaign mode awards characters with PFS-style XPs, so I guess that means they advance in PFS style, not the normal stlye I'd be using for a home campaign then?

Sebastian, thanks for your explanation. I will keep the September convention in mind.

How is GM credit handled with campaign mode? What counts as a "session"? Is there any more documentation about this then in the Guide to Organized Play? Is that the "RPG" checkbox on the module in the event creating form?

Sorry for the many questions.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Thanks Sebastian and Benjamin for your information. The warhorn.net website Benjamin mentions lists some events but strangely seems to make no mention of where those events are being held. Weird.

Weeknights 7-11pm games as the ones listed there are basically useless to me unless they are in Cologne. Traveling to cities like Würzburg, or even Frankfurt is out of the question for me, because I could no get to them on time or get back home in the evening. I don't own a car or even have a licence, and going by train is much too expensive for this purpose. To be honest, even a city such as Aachen is already out of the question due to the timing alone. I know this is my fault alone, but it's the way it is.

Campaign mode sounds interesting, where can I find more information about this? I can't find it in the Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play, and googling doesn't help either. I understand PFS has completely different rules for experience and advancement that a home campaign. Is that different in campaign mode? Does is support levels higher than 12?

Regaring the venture officers: the documents about duties and expectations lists certain things such as at lea one organized game per month and so on. If people become inactive, shouldn't they be noted as such or removed?

EDIT: just noted the warhorn.net stuff is online gaming – then it makes sense no location is mentioned. I still have no clue how an online game is supposed to work.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

It seems the peroson ostenibly in charge of PFS in Cologne does not even reside or hold events in Cologne but in Aachen only which is a good 40 miles away, which certainly is not just around the corner.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Just as an aside: the VC listed for my city is Markus Lambertz. I have tried to contact him by email and via this forum, but I have never gotten any kind of response. He has one post on this forum, and does not seem to have any GM stars. I just checked the list again and I see there is now a second person listed as venture lieutenant (i'm not quite sure what that entails). That person also has exactly one post on the forum. The PFS events page has no events listed for Germany at all (or anywhere outside the US). How would I even be able to participate if I wanted? Or run a game?

where can I see what qualifications the Gm stars imply? I've been combing th PFS resource pages but I can't seem to find that.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That is unfortunate.

What's stopping your home gaming group from playing PFS? What's stopping you from organizing these bigger events every now and then in your area? No, you're not going to be able to run, or even read, some of the one-off adventures because likely they weren't even published. I remember reading about one that was just a Word document. Paizo is not going to release a Word document, and they're not going to put in the money and time to format something for publishing that can't be used in-game.

i am talking about scenarios that are listed as published products on this site, and are probably available to buy for the "appropriate" GMs while for the uninitiated they just show up as "unavailable".

What's stopping me? For one the things I already listed above, and also the fact that I don't necessarily want to submit my home campaign(s) to the restrictive rulings of the PFS.

If some people getting something you don't/can't because they went to a convention that you didn't/couldn't makes you feel "second-class" then I'm sorry your self-perception is so fragile. No one is ever going to have access to everything. Paizo is not going to cheapen the experience of those who managed to be there by releasing that exclusive experience to everyone.

No offense, but maybe it's you who is "fragile" if you think your convention experience is "cheapened" because someone on another continent can read the scenario you played.

If it were just restricting PDF files, I would agree. I can understand the logic behind restricting exclusive content until its purpose as convention incentive is fulfilled. Even if I really want to be able to run Bonekeep Part 2 right now.

I'm OK with the fact that I can't run the scenarios officially if I don't fulfill some condition. I'd just like to be able to read them, is all. I know well that I'll quite likely never run any kind of PFS scenarion, and still I buy them all.

Even if I wanted to run scenarios, what good does that do me if the VC in question does not answer any requests.

hmm? Anyone canbuy scenarios. YOu can use them for a home game.

No, they can't and that's exactly my point. These specials are usually restricted. At first they are only available to GMs that run them at PaizoCon/GenCon, and later only to 4- or 5-star GMs. Some, but not all are made available years later.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber
Steven Schopmeyer wrote:
The specials for the most part have been focused mainly on the Society rather than Golarion at large. I suppose there may be some canon material mentioned, but the biggest example of that was Race for the Runecarved Key Part 2, run only once at Gencon. Such a scenario has specifically not be done since then due to the limited use versus development costs. Have you purchased the earlier season specials Zaister, and found them to contain the kind of information you want?

I know the scenarios are not brimming with world info, and that is not what I mean. Of course it is also a completionist issue. I just feel artificially restricting an unrestricterd resource such as PDF files is somewhat silly.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Yes, but they are organized by region, and there is exactly one person responsible for my region. If I wanted to go to an actual game, it would pretty much have to be in Cologne. I don't know where you live; it may appear small to Americans who are used to drive 30 Miles to the closest supermarket, but Germany is actually quite large, at least from the view of a person who doesn't own and usually doesn't need a car.

That is all beside the point, however. Actually, I don't even know if I'd want to play PFS, as, from what I'm reading, it is a quite a different experience from "normal" home gaming. It even seems competitive somehow. What I do want, however, is to be able to keep up on Golarion canon, and if there is material containing such that I cannot buy as a Paizo customer, I feel a bit like a second-class customer.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Well, "spoiler-free" is mor or less the opposite of what I am looking for. Basically I would just like to be able to read these adventures without having to wait for several years until they are made available to the lowly public.

I don't think there's any meaningful PFS games around this part of Germany, I have tried on more than one occasion to contact the person who is ostensibly in charge here because I thought I might start something for PACG, but he never deigned to respond.

I am not a fan of play-by-post-gaming, to be honest I can't even imagine how that works. But I thought those specials were intended to be convention-only, so even participating in local or online PFS would not help here.

Thing is, I am OK with the scenarios being restricted for the purpose of play in PFS games, but I don't like that you can't even buy and read them unless you are in a small, very elite group of people, and one that I couldn't even be a member of if I wanted to. I feel I am left out of a part of official Golarion canon, I and I don"t like that.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Hi guys, I know you're doing a hard job and we're all thankful for it, but please, please, in the future, do not put books and especially comics into the green packing peanuts without wrapping them in some kind of envelope.

The peanuts break up into hundreds of pieces on transport, some of them only millimeter-sized. And they are full of static electricity, and they stick to every kind of paper. Hundreds of these little pieces get in between the pages of comics. And they resist being removed due to the electric charges.

I just spent an hour cleaning out the 10 comics I just got, and now I've got my hands covered in the stuff and it won't come off easily.

So, please, please, wrap the comics, or use a packing material that is not susceptible to the static electricity.

Thank you!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

It's still sad, that those of us who basically have no access to PFS, let alone the cons have to wait for years and years to find out how the season stories end...

That looks weird indeed. It seems the ship has some kind of "outliers" to the side that are actuall off the side of the ship and above the water. I don't think I have ever seen a ship like that.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I love the depiction of Seelah and Kyra on that cover artwork.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Got my copy this week, too. What an awesome book!

Did I miss somehting, is the woman on the cover a named NPC, or is she just supposed to be generic?


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Yeah, as a software developer I can imagine that this might not be trivial. I was just wondering.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

All kinds of new products are listed in the "Product Discussion" messageboard with "Paizo Publishing, LLC". But isn't it "Paizo, Inc." now?

I really want to play this.

Just for the record: I actually liked Mass Effect 3, even better than Mass Effect 2 (which had been a disappointment for me, because it basically did away with quite a lot of things I enjoyed in the first game), and I didn't even have to have the expanded ending. And I think EA has far far bigger failures in their book. Sim City, Batllefield 4 come to mind.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

That fits perfectly.

The Strategy Guide was put together and printed before the recent FAQ ruling that reversed that rule and introduced the exception that the corners—as in D&D v.3.5—are indeed threatened.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

My current subscription products have now shipped in two separate packages, but I'm wondering, shouldn't the Strategy Guide I preordered have also shipped with my current subscription?

According to the listing in the werewolve's change shape ability, you use the rules from the polymorph spell to determine the exact effects, which does the same as beast shape II. So you gain low-light vision, scent, and trip, as well as a +2 size bonus to your Strength and a +2 natural armor bonus.

A swarm is always composed of 4 squares. These need not be in a 2 by 2 square formation, the swarm is shapeable and can assume a new shape with each move. The only restriction is that its squares remain contiguous. So basically, at any one time the swarm can form any one "Tetris-shape".

Glad to be a part of it!
