So has anyone here used anything in this book yet besides me?

Currently my party has found:
a 20ft roll of duct tape, a zipstick, and a dart gun. In that time they've managed to live wrangle a Dire Boar with said duct tape and blind the alchemist after firing the dart gun for the first time. As a GM I'm loving every minute.

It only took one thing for me to like this book: the trait that lets your sorcerer bloodline be that of a outer dragon. I just wish that the trait's wording worked for bloodragers as well, so I could make a Solar Dragon Bloodrager for PFS :D

Lol I feel you though I will say in my homegame I've had a void dragon bloodrager now since b4 launched and it's been a blast. If it is a home game you could just talk to your GM and see if you could use the cone/line and energy type of your preferred outer dragon.

Umm... maybe? I just read integrated weapon and it allows you to use it for light or 1 handed weapons. Unfortunately the chainsaw in here is a 2 handed weapon. With that said the integrated weapon allows said weapon to slip away into your arm rather than just mount it to you so you might get lucky with a more primitive one that sacs the hand but lets you wield it or a smaller one that comes out of one of the iron gods books.

Thanks! I don't know how much Adam improved on that paragraph, but I was struck while writing it how being an android means never knowing your descendants, the closest thing to biological children androids have.

Yeah that really did hit that nail on the head man, totally felt that kind of bittersweet feeling of being a parent who will never meet their child. It gets even better when you factor in the emotionlessness of androids and how that struggle to express emotion and the slightly autistic way that they must communicate amongst each other.

Ohh once we were playing Decline of Glory and my buddies Cad fighter defeated a gang of 4 goblins at range with a crossbow, a chair, a thrown cutlass, and a dead goblin.

He shot one with the crossbow sitting in the chair, stood up and threw the chair at the next one, walked up and chucked his sabre at the 3rd, and then picked up the 3rd by the sabre sticking out of his neck and horked it at the final goblin.

He then proceeded to mount the last goblin on the end of his longspear and stick it into the next rooms ahead of the part as mob bait, working its mouth with a stick and saying in common, "Blarg blarg blarg I'm a Goblin! Blarg Blarg Blarg!". It was only after about 5 minutes of this he remembered he spoke Goblin and then proceeded to say in that beautiful tongue, "Blarg blarg blarg I'm a Goblin! Blarg blarg blarg!"

Did I mention he was Taldan?

Also he killed a druid with a mug and a bookcase that game.

Mine came about during the Cyphermage Dilemma when I was playing my primitive weapon wielding slayer Roga Gula.

spoiler:
Roga (a kellid), Bob (who talks like Bob Dole) the barbarian, a barely skating by atonement paladin, and my friends alchemist who mutagens into a giant bull man known as The Battle Cattle have just discovered a gangs hideout and quickly dispatched everything in the room and discovered a "captive" who claims to be a member of the cyphermages in town. While the rest of the party comes immediately to her aid Roga hangs back, remembering that the venture captain had told him that the enemy was known to be a master of disguise and could be anybody. He then proceeds to tell Bob and then one by one the rest of the party. Quickly the mood turns from happy saviors to suspicious kidnappers as the rest of the party tries to figure out whether or not this woman who says she was enslaved is really who she says she is the only way 3 tanks, a pyro, and a serial killer know how. By tying her up and threatening every form of punishment their 4 minds can muster while soaked in other mens blood. It works and she panics and promptly tells us where her "friends" are and leads us to them. Unfortunately she seems to have been telling the truth and we arrive at the hall of the Cyphermages with their scholar in tow, her hands bound and terrified and being led by what can only be described as an unruly mob led by the lanky and blood soaked Khal Drogo that is Roga Gula. They "thank" the party and answer whatever questions we have as quickly as possible and then proceed to rush us out the door, a look of terror on their face as they do. Unfortunately I forgot to ask something and come back a few minutes later and bang on the door until they answer, all the while drawing Gorumish graffiti on the doors exterior. Now whenever we are in Riddleport we can visit the hall of the Cyphermages and see the various bits of vandalism Roga has done to the door.

Roga also likes to refer to anyone in the party who is the face as his lawyer and anyone who can carry his extra weapons as his caddy.

Also he has this obsession with creating a bloody mess. A fact that has made for some uncomfortable moments when his favorite caddy/lawyer revealed to him that he was a, "Bloatmage, an arcanist with a penchant for easy bleeding". After his eyes went wide his next move was to try and dissuade him by telling him that he wasn't just an easy bleeder, but that his blood was magic. Suffice it to say Roga's been eyeing him like a stuck pig ever since.

Beyond that he also has had long angry rants at some guy named Bruce who runs around and thinks that calling himself "Flying nocturnal mammal man" or some such stupidity somehow makes him either more intimidating or more respectable.

Hey quick question since I can't seem to find the answer, do you use heal to make pharmaceuticals or some other skill?

Now I do have a question. How does a chainsaw function when it does not have a charge? Can I still wail on people with it or is it treated as an improvised melee weapon?

Sadist.....

Lol man if you want a bit of a spoiler I can provide

Potentially Major Spoiler:
It is basically the note from one android to his child, the consciousness that will inhabit his body once he dies and passes on to the next world and his body reboots and a new soul fills his old form. It is him trying to tell his child everything every parent would ever want to tell their child to comfort them and make them feel safe and link them back to their history in one tiny paragraph and they know that they will both never get another chance and never get to meet this wonderful being they helped bring into this world. It's both incredibly beautiful in scope and tremendously sad all at once and I was sold.

Evil is hurting, oppressing, or killing. Worship is not any of those things.

There's Lawful Neutral Admodeans, Chaotic Neutral Rovagug followers, etc., so worship of evil isn't inheritly evil; just toeing that line.

But that also means it's a nongood act. I mean sure you could worship them but the whole point is that you would not be keeping your G for long. Eventually your paladin beliefs will chafe against the requirements of the faith and one will break. You'll need to beat a slave to hobbling to prove your asmodean might and make sure none of the others try to flee, you'll have to keep the secret cure to that disease to yourself because you follow norgorber, or you'll have to break another paladin because Zon loves to see people fall below them. They're evil, that's the point of their worship is that you will hurt others or yourself, consciously or unconsciously in order to prove your devotion to them and eventually you will fall and if you are a paladin whether that fall is to the bottom of the alignment chart or to the middle you crashed into is irrelevant. You still are now a warrior npc class who knows what it was once like to be something greater.

I'm mostly on board with your interpretation, except for your misuse of the term "science," which I really wish you'd stop.

"Non-magical chemical processes," sure. But "science" isn't "things that aren't magic." "Science" is "the study of how the laws of physics work." If magical energies exist, and if they obey laws, the study of the laws that they obey constitute a field of scientific study. Wizards researching new spells are scientists. People crafting magic items are engineers.

Honestly if it bugs people so much in their home games I would just add, "and alchemical items" to the effected list. Since the needs to be a caster portion of craft (alchemy) was removed from the skill then I could totally see it as being some primitive form of chemistry like our alchemy is with them fumbling through the processes in a similar way. I mean it won't really effect power curve that much since, as Mr. Jacobs said himself, those items really don't change a ton of s!!& on their own to begin with.

Hey, folks. I've been following the discussion here for a while and taking lessons learned for any future projects I work on. I can't comment or speculate on any of the decisions and revisions that were made after I submitted my text, but I'd like to try to clarify a couple of things.

1) Summoning a fiendish chimera is an option from the Pathfinder #77 article on Baphomet (see page 75). Priests of Baphomet can summon one with summon monster VI. Although Thurl isn't technically a priest, he's a summoner who fervently worships the demon lord. It just made sense to me that he'd be able to do it, too.

2) The missing acid flask component for acid spray was a total oversight on my part. I've added "Ensure material components and foci for spells are in character's gear" to my NPC creation checklist to make sure that kind of thing doesn't happen again.

And, yes, my intent was for Tancred to drink the potion of haste at the first sign of trouble. I think I had originally given a potion to him at both tiers, but the one from the lower tier was subsequently removed.

I hope that helps. Thanks.

Cool man. I just wanted to know where he got it from and I have to say much cooler than the other options.

Also, I just got to run this for the 1st time and I have to say that that barb vs. Thrul fight needs to be streamlined and his crazyness better explained. As it stands I ran it on the low tier and that whole encounter is just a bear to run and eats up time. I will say though the environment option does really add a lot of atmospheric umph that the scenario needs.

If I were given the option I would cut the 1st encounter, make the weather more central, let me fight Thrul after somehow removing the barbs from combat for a spell or automate their moves then fight them, and make the thing with the golem a pivotal part of the scene. It sucks that I had to cut that scene in order to get everyone home before midnight considering how evocative it is to the whole affair.

Also have they addressed Thrul's summons for his high tier encounter? As it stands it says he summons a Fiendish chimera after inhaz dies but how the hell is he getting one? Is this a typo or just something special he can do?

You can apply credit from playing a higher than 1st level pregen character to a 1st level character. When you do so you reduce the gold earned to 500gp (for a 1exp scenario), but you retain access to any items or boons that you earned while playing. You cannot do this with GM credit, you instead must hold the credit until the character is of high enough level for the lowest tier of the chronicle.

Ohh wow where does that rule come from?

Well, the more logically consistent justification for the 12 INT/Linguistics would be that your Tengu knew Tengu and Tien (Tian Xia's Common) originally, and that Taldane was the language learned via the stat/skill point. It's just a little annoying that the mechanics don't work that way, but the existence of any universal language like Common, which is a major convenience, especially in a globe-trotting campaign like PFS, is bound to lead to logical inconsistencies.

Sort of. The problem is that in the Dragon Empires primer they state that common in Tian Xia is Tian and Taldane is listed as a side language so it isn't the business tongue everywhere. What would be really cool is if you could just select one of the ethnic languages or common as your starter and build from their. Could be cool to have the option to play a character who doesn't know Common for a while.

God to I hate telling you this but no. By RAW rapid reload cannot be placed on a Heavy Repeating Crossbow *glares menacingly at design staff*

That being said you can use Crossbow Mastery on it. I've used this work around on my Crossbow spec'd ranger since you can get it that way without needing the qualifications.

This is one of those MANY THINGS involving repeaters that I've wanted addressed like this (along with changing the proficiency feat to more closely match that of fire arms).

Now if this a home game I would say just talk to your GM and see if he cares. Usually you can get lucky and this isn't a problem.

Now don't get me wrong if you want to tell me that in pfs Taldor, all of it's original colonies, Nidal, Druma, Nimrathas, Molthune, and I believe Mendev are inherently more ignorant than everywhere else in the world since all other non humans everywhere else must be at least 12 Int to ask for a beer back home that's fine but it feels off.

Also it seems like something that wouldn't mess with the power curve at all and give people another easy way to flesh out their character background. Besides that it also helps remove having to explain and justify why my half-orc leg breaker and thug also knows how to decipher languages discern forgeries lol.

I know that humans get the ethnic language of the region they are from but does that mean other races do as well? Like if I am a Half orc from the land of the Linnorm kingdoms do I get Ulfen for free or if I'm a Tengu from their home country in Tian Xia to I get Tian for free?

Encumbrance needs to be tracked. The only leeway PFS grants is that coinage weight is hand waved. It is assumed that you have enough in-game resources to manage your wealth. Only the weight of gear needs to be tracked.

That said, I do find that not everyone is good at math, and sometimes when I encounter a Strength 7 Human I'll double check to make sure they're applying the appropriate penalties for being encumbered.

Cool and good to hear! I know it usually doesn't come up since people are usually packed well (either not needing much or already in high grade armor) but it's good to know I can call it. Also I'm about to run some scenarios deep in the worldwound where resource management could be tight so I wanted to make sure.

So I actually have a really big question here that might need to be addressed.

spoiler:
Okay in the very beginning of this adventure it states that you should randomly roll weather for each day they are out in the Frostmire and on top of that if you have access to The Worldwound book you can choose to use that weather system instead of the one provided. Now I have said book and one of the random weather events that can occur is an Abyssal rift, a hole to a random plane of the Abyss that you can fall through and potentially get stuck in. On top of that though it both functions like a gate spell allowing objects and creatures to pass through (hell the write up even talks about abyssal molten rock pouring through along with gates opening to abyssal seas along with demons coming through). On top of that it doesn't really offer any guide to what can and cannot come through or where this hooks up at. So, does that mean that on one s&!@ roll my table of 11th level characters could have a rift crack open and a gout of molten lave sporting a balor comes rolling out?

Now I know that example is a little harsh and probably not my first choice but I'm interested to know if that is possible? I know people keep saying that this scenario doesn't feel big or epic enough and I would love to know that I'm given a bit more room to play in this regard. Also considering this is the freakin Worldwound the option for things to be abjectly horrifying in all aspects seems pretty on the nose.

Basically the question above, I've been playing or con GM'ing pfs now for about 4 years now but I've never thought to ask. I assume the answer is yes but if their is an official ruling one way or the other it would be greatly appreciated to know now.
