For the sake of not having to worry about card formatting, I would suggest that you have the Academy and Woods (with the power causing you to have no Arcane skill), and then once the Academy is closed you build the two new locations (which actually fits better with the "graduation" theme) and then you win when you defeat whatever special Villain is added in those newly built locaitons. I'll work on it later and see what I can come up with. :)

Oh and I wanted to point out that a TON (over 30) of the cards already on there at launch were designed by myself, and I'm more than happy to have them out there for as many people as possible to buy. :)

Why not have them be Loot Allies with a special trait you come up with. Then create a barrier that, if defeated, allowed you to choose one Loot Ally with that special trait from the box and add it to your hand. That takes care of how you get them.

I'm not sure of the math, but it seems like a single barrier might be just as rare as a single ally, given that there are usually fewer barriers in a given scenario.

What you said did just give me yet another idea, though. It would be very interesting to have a set of solo scenarios, each unique to a character, that plays out as either a flashback or some other interlude and has the respective companion/favored boon as the scenario reward. These could offer a lot of extra flavor to each character. The only problem is that I'm not very well versed in the Pathfinder mythos. Any help would be appreciated :)

And WOW that sounds like a seriously awesome idea! We could possibly use the storylines from the new Pathfinder Origins comics! If you'd like to collaborate on this, I'd be happy to help!

I can verify that Mike Selinker is aware that people would like the "Owner" mechanic to be added to the card creator, so I have a feeling that it'll happen in the near future for all boon cards. :)

And as always, Kludde comes through! Just let us know when you're good to go, Kludde, and I'll help you organize it. Do you want to start a recruitment thread now, with the up-front caveat that we'll be waiting 2-3 weeks to start?

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I love everything about it EXCEPT how hard it is going to be to program it into OCTGN so that my friends in Houston and I can play it online. (Not as part of Organized Play, mind you, just because it's fun!) :-P

But yes, these scenarios have been REALLY great. I very much look forward to seeing what the next season brings.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

@OSW: I personally don't understand the issue, as long as those of us who are making the cards and making them available to the public are aware that we're giving away our ideas.

I have no issue with making content for free for the public... we (as in you, me, and others together) have been doing that for years with the Multiclass Archetypes. The cost of printing the cards is simply that... a service to print the cards. If I had the means and photoshop skills to make the cards in Photoshop and then have them printed by FedEx, I might consider it, but this makes it much more conveneint for me.

The fact that I can share the cards with the rest of the community is just a bonus for me... I'm working on a full 60-card "deck 7" that I hope to eventually have printed by DriveThru (once all the card types are available) and share with the community.

So anyway, I really don't see an issue with the way this is being handled. You don't HAVE to make your cards available to the community to buy... you just CAN... and I am very glad that I CAN do so. :)

Silver Crusade *** RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16 aka cartmanbeck

Excellent, great to know, Jesse! I'll make sure Kludde sees this to entice him even more! :)

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

AH that totally makes sense now! Thanks pluvia33!

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

There's an error on scenario 0-5C: Release the Obligatory Kraken... the villain card that you're supposed to use to proxy the Kraken is not spelled out! Not that it matters, it's something we should be able to do ourselves by now, but I'm just saying.

The more confusing thing to me is the scenario power... what does it actually do gameplay-wise to add the barrier type and the Curse trait to the Pirate Shade Haunt??

Since the Alehouse's recharge-and-draw is optional, you can't play as if you would have recharged it but oh-the-scenario-says-I-can't. If the "you may" weren't on the Alehouse, you might have a case.

No card draw for you!

Another clarification is needed about this scenario... it doesn't specify what ships you can choose as your ship. I'm assuming any Class 5 or lower like the previous scenario, but it should be spelled out on the scenario sheet.

Unfortunately, Nalshene has already participated in the Race. So, I'll just have to wait until another scenario can give credit to a level 19. :-(

Edit: but yes, she played in Eyes of the Ten, and is currently at level 14.2.

Silver Crusade *** RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16 aka cartmanbeck

Hi guys!
I currently have a seeker character just sitting around at level 14, and I realized there are probably other people in the same boat. I was hoping to pull together a group of us who could play PbP modules to get our characters from level 14 all the way up to... well, as high as we can take them. As of now, with modules only, it looks like that's to level 18:
Academy of Secrets (12-14)
Tomb of the Iron Medusa (13-15)
The Moonscar (15-17)
The Witchwar Legacy (16-18)

If we then add in an adventure path book at the end:
RotRL Book 6: Spires of Xin-Shalast (16-18)

we'd end up at level 19, and just have to wait for a module or adventure path book that could take us up that last level.

Now, I've asked DM Kludde if he might be willing to take this on, and he's interested but not sure yet, so I wanted to see how many other people would be interested and can help me convince him to run this game! Post your characters' general concepts below if you'd like.

Mine is a Sorcerer (Sylvan) 13/Oracle 1 with a dinosaur companion (used to be a spinosaurus, but I've had to retconn him as a deinonychus since the spinosaurus is no longer legal).

Silver Crusade *** RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16 aka cartmanbeck

My wife is from that area, and I'll tell you... good luck... you're pretty far out in the boonies, and I dont' expect you to find a ton of gamers, unfortunately. That being said, I hope you're able to find some good people, and if you are interested in play-by-post, I've found it's a good way to scratch the gaming itch without having to muster up a table of people. :)

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I was part of the testing for this project before it went public, and almost all of the cards I created (and are now publically available, there are about 30 of them there) use images from the Paizo Blog. I never got any pushback from any Paizo folks about using that artwork on the cards, so I think they're fine with it, but of course I'm no lawyer.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Well, I'm excited to see this one come out, because I worked on several archetypes for it! This is gonna be a GREAT book!

Thanks for the explanation, Hawkmoon. What about adding the cards to an alreaddy ongoing game?

Shouldn't be an issue, since those of us who subscribe are consistently adding new promos to the game every month when we get them in our subscription packages. I'd say as long as you're at least playing adventure 1, you'd be fine to add them.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

No problem at all, I'm glad this worked out so well! I've got just a couple more people that need to send me their addresses (I emailed them and have gotten no response) so if I don't hear back from them by this coming Friday I will count up my extras and see how many I have left.

Assuming it doesn't appear on the cleric, wizard, or druid spell list as well.

It's an 8th level Cleric spell.

Per the PFS ruling, it goes:

- Check if Clerics, Wizards, or Druids have it on their spell list. If so, use that Spell Level.
- If it shows on more than one of the Cleric, Wizard, and/or Druid spell list, you can get the lowest Spell Level.
- If it does not show on any of the three spell list, you can obtain it at the appropriate price per the CRB price scale for the appropriate class. Ex: A 2nd Spell Level scroll of a Paladin costs 200gp.
- For normal PFS play (Levels 1-11), you can only buy up to 6th Spell Level scrolls.

So if you really want, you can buy that 6th level Bard Scroll for 2400gp.

But it's on the Cleric list, so you can't access it as a Bard scroll, period. So, the answer is no.

Honestly, not sure. I would entertain pretty much any offers. I have too many characters already, so I don't see myself using the two race boons anytime soon. I would love to find a Prosperity boon (or several, for that matter). Just PM me with offers! :)

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Fair enough, you can buy animals and kill-then-raise them, but I know that if you were at my table, and you had brought a pack of horses along with you on the mission specifically to slaughter them and cast animate dead on them, I would consider it an alignment infraction even for a CN character. I'm sure I'm not the only GM who would do so.

The best way to make this happen without consistantly needing Atonement spells, I think, would be to make sure that you have a really REALLY good Handle Animal check, and send the poor horse into the first battle you have at every scenario, hoping to have it killed right away.
Note that it would count as your one "combat companion" for the scenario, so you'd get just one shot at the start of the scenario, then you'd have to make use of enemy bodies afterward.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

The problem for you in PFS CORE, just like for all necromancers in PFS, is that the undead that you create will not exist between sessions, which means for at least the first combat, you will have no bodies to animate into your bombs. And especially if you end up in a non-combat-heavy scenario, you might have to take the enemies alive and things like that to fulfill your mission objectives.

Even if you can find bodies to animate right away at the start of a scenario, you're going to be spending all of your gold on onyx stones to use in your animate dead spells.

There's no way to keep bones of dead creatures between scenarios or anything fun like that either. I just don't see it as being terribly viable, unfortunately.

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I haven't yet... how many pages does it get to start? And a spell takes up a number of pages equal to its level (with a level 0 taking up 1/2 a page), correct?

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Congrats to the two who made it! We're going to have to find us some more GMs to run games for the rest of us!

Not to be nitpicky, but do you find it necessary to display the "CORE" the character's name? If it helps you identify your own characters in the reporting form, then I understand.

That's exactly why.... this character is #26 for me, so tricks to keep them straight are helpful for me.

Silver Crusade *** RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16 aka cartmanbeck

I'm sure I can come up with another character concept for this one... I feel like I should go with a standard Wizard for once. :)

I'll put him together today and have him posted by this evening.

Silver Crusade *** RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16 aka cartmanbeck

I've got a Spiritualist and an Occultist in PbP PFS games, they're both very fun so far. I love that my Occultist can get access to weapon special abilities normally not available at early levels.

Elemental halfling sorcerer here. You can expect buffs and some blasting here.

Unfortunately, if you've played this character in a non-CORE game already, you can't play in CORE games. All of your character's chronicle sheets have to be form CORE games to play in one. You can switch from CORE to REGULAR play, but once you switch you're stuck in the regular campaign.

Quick question for Nohwear: Since shuriken are enchanted like ammunition, but realistically carrying around 50 magical shuriken is not terribly realistic, would you allow me to buy enchanted shuriken in batches of 10 for 1/5 the enchant cost?

I'll be happy to help again, Mike and Vic. I'm already on the playtesting list, and I should have significantly more time to test things this time around than I did with Wrath.

It actually says on the Adventure Path page to remove all Basic and Elite cards from the box with a number 3 less than the current scenario before you start the 0-4 scenarios.

Season of the Shackles Adventure Path Rules text wrote:


After you finish Treacherous Waters, at the beginning of each new adventure, when you add a new Adventure Deck to your game box, remove all cards with the Basic or Elite trait that have adventure deck numbers at least 3 less than the adventure deck you just added. (Treat the set indicators B, C, and P as 0.) Do not remove Blessings of the Gods.

So this means as soon as you start the first 0-4 scenario, you should be removing all Basic cards with a set number of B, C or 1, if I'm not mistaken.

Here's the link to my character, Racket: Racket

Just need to buy a bunch of alchemical items and such, and work on his backstory. :)

Silver Crusade RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Awesome! Ok so, my buddy jooker and I are going to do a two-man team here, so we'd definitely want to be chosen together if you like our concept.

My guy: I'll be playing a wayang rogue (Vexing Dodger archetype from the Giant Slayer's Handbook) who also dabbles in alchemy. He'll be a wise-cracking little cuss with a knack for getting his friends out of trouble in a pinch. His focus will be on riding on his buddy's shoulders into combat and jumping over onto giants and messing them up.

jooker's guy: A large, brutish oread fighter (Titan Fighter archetype also from the Giant Slayer's Handbook) named Grok who speaks little but carries a big... actually quite massive... sword. He'll be using a Large-size greatsword that he stole from a giant camp.

We'll work on more detailed backstories and make profiles for these guys over the next day or two. Here's hoping we get picked!!
