7-20 Invasion of the Body Thieves
Drendal Drang has summoned you (in the middle of the night) to find out what has happened to a group of Pathfinders he sent into the Drowned Yard some time back. You are not going after their remains, but investigating strange behaviors that people have been reporting to him about this group of Pathfinders.
Just like has been said before, play what you want to play and enjoy it. I'm known as one of those people in my area that builds the "strange" characters. My favorite is a Kitsune Fighter who is Dex based and carries more wands than weapons. Sometimes the Kitsune is a better caster than some of the casters in the party. (Since he was the unarmed fighter archetype and was 8th level when the errata for the archetype happened, he's been rebuilt into an unchained monk. Same base concept, but slightly better in battle.) It's fun to go to a convention and tell your party that you are a fighter in class only, yet still contribute in meaningful ways.

There is a table of Part 2 at Scotty's Brewhouse starting at 12:30. Currently the table has 7 people listed, but that can always change.
Glad to hear you got a table. I still might run Scions part 3 Wednesday night, if there is enough interest. Either reply here, or send me a message.
One of the people coming with me needs Scions Part 3 as well. I might be able to run it for you guys. Not sure when we would start, but I'm hoping to get into town no later then 5. Throw out some times we could try starting at and we'll go from there. Not sure what the hotel option would look like where I'm staying, but we are close (5 blocks) to the convention center.

Remember, that any summoner that was level 2 and played at least once before April 27, is grandfathered in as the APG summoner. This means that those that had their builds before don't have to change. You get the choice to rebuild into the unchained summoner if you want, but it is not required.
This is a rough spell, but as was stated earlier, martial types can also end the BBEG in one round. Color spray is another save or suck spell that can end combat quickly, especially when paired with a Heaven's Oracle with Awesome Display. Anything can break a combat, but I agree with nosig that casters do usually receive the brunt of the "this is broken" conversation.
Can't be. VCs always make their save.
You need to quit targeting Drendle Drang, we all know he is immune to sleep spells.
I just wanted to post a thank you to those who have been going back and helping fix mistakes. While I don't do a lot of programming, I work in IT and I know that there is so much going on in the background of these websites that take up so many IT man-hours. Also, the VOs who have access to change these, didn't have to help out and it is appreciated.
Here's hoping the next few months of changes in the background go smoothly.
The odd thing with all this was I ended up with more tables of credit then I remembered having. This must have been one of the other fixes that were talked about. I couldn't find it, but I remember (correctly or not) that there was an issue with some of the modules not reporting as 2 credits before. Looks like that was the fix for me. I was able to change the Spire tables I ran, so that was easy enough. The Thornkeep table was a little tougher, but was fixed. I'm not running into the Blakros Matrimony issue, as I've not played or judged it yet. I am looking forward to it, the Blakros family is an interesting one.

There was a bug previously that removed all the Emerald Spire sections and replaced it with a Generic entry. That would be where they are getting the bas scenario entry from. I know that I am missing 2 Emerald Spire tables that were subject to that same bug. I've just got to find that info, but won't get home for quite a while to look it up.
While playing in a group with a lecherous bard, I realized my character had access to a partially charged wand of Share Memory.
You momentarily link your mind with the target and share a single memory of no longer than 1 minute. You can show the target one of your memories, show the target one of its own memories, or view one of the target's memories.
Once we had obtained the information we needed from the people, he immediately looked at me and said "And now the fun beings." Wanting to impart a memory of his onto the NPC.
Thanks for the offer, but I've already played that scenario.
I've gotten a couple of replies here and if you want to play/GM, we might have a game going.
I've got a group of people locally that I usually play with and missed a session due to unforeseen circumstances. We've been playing Destiny of the Sands and I need a group for Part 2. My preferred times are this Friday or Saturday night either at 7 or 8 PM CDT. I would appreciate anyone that can play, but if it doesn't work out, I totally understand.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that I would be playing a 3rd level Sorcerer, so tier isn't a limiting factor.
I know it's convention season and GenCon starts tomorrow (I wish I was there), but it's time to start getting the word out for CogCon 24.
The Missouri S&T Gaming Association is happy to announce that CogCon 24 will be held in the Havener Center, on the Missouri S&T Campus in Rolla, Missouri, September 19 - 21, 2014. Come join us for three days of gaming!
Over 60 tables of gaming will be run, including year 5 scenarios, year 6 scenarios, and an open library.
We will be bringing back the famous CogCon Raffle, so come ready to win!
Scenarios will be added as the event gets closer. Want to volunteer to GM? Please contact us!
For more information please go to CogCon Gaming.
To Register please see our Warhorn site.
There are quite a few scenarios where identifying yourself as a Pathfinder makes things worse. I've had tables where "IN THE VC BRIEFING" they specifically say to hide your affiliation with the Pathfinder Society, that immediately start using their Society resources at the first sign of trouble. It makes for some interesting scenarios.
As far as I know you should be able to. I just have a lot of nail polish in my house (wife and 2 daughters) so I don't have to worry about buying the primer and paint.
Here's the link to the picture. I'm still trying to figure out what color to paint it. We use ABS plastic, so I'm going to use nail polish to paint it eventually.
I've not painted it yet, but I can post the picture of the model later tonight, once I get home from work.
I have access to a 3D printer and decided to just print one myself. It's a multi-tailed fox, so not humanoid form, but close enough for what I want. I'll have to see if I can find the link again and post it here.
EDIT: Found the link here. It may be a "premium" model, but if you sign into the website, you are allowed to download 10 premium models a month.

It appears to be. The scale is 1 square is 10 feet. Reading through the scenario, the rooms would be awfully cramped if they were 5 foot squares with all the stuff that is supposed to be in them. It makes it hard trying to print out the maps when they are 1 sq = 10 ft.
If you don't like Sheila, you really wouldn't like Drendle Drang. He falls under the shady-looking guy in the tavern (my opinion). As for Sheila, I've always thought of her a one of the more friendly VCs. She is a great VC for Varisa and it make for some fun times RPing her with some of the PCs in my area.
I'm looking forward to Eyes as we have a fairly rounded out group here almost ready. As for the Decemvirate, I've always thought of them as slightly shady just because of the fact they hide their identities.
The Free RPG Day mod from 2 years ago allowed the use of the pregens for that module only. This should apply this year as well since they will want to tempt players to get the ACG.
Now, do we have any word yet on if it will be sanctioned? I've been watching the thread on the product page, but nothing yet as far as I know.
I got some inspiration on how to RP Lander from a few other people in my area who RP Taldon nobles. Cocky, arrogant, above everyone else... It gives a decent description of Lander in the module that helps.
I also gave the boons to the entire party since that's what it read like to me.
Unless you have a party of optimized PCs, Marek should dispatch the PCs easily, based on his stats. An 11th level Fighter against a group of level 1-5 PCs should be no-contest.
I'm doing the same thing and if you read through the rules attached for the chronicles, I'm handing the chronicles out at the times specified in the sanctioned rules. Ex: I'll be handing out the chronicle for Snows of Summer once they get through P5 in the story.
EDIT: I guess I should clarify that I think all the players are creating a new PFS character to apply this to, but it definitely can go to existing characters.

There was another post that I read, that implied something along what I was saying, but I could have read it wrong.
Agreed, if you have the gold and PP to retrain, go for it, but like what was said earlier, this is a playtest and just because there is something you like about a class now, doesn't mean that it will still be there when the book is released.
Remember if you have a level in one of the new classes, alternate classes list, you cannot take the new class, or the other way around as well.
EX: I have a 5th level Fighter and want to take a level of the Brawler class. I cannot retrain one of the fighter levels into the new class, nor can I take a level of Brawler class when I level to 6. If I wanted to make use of the Brawler class, I would have to retrain all 5 levels to Brawler and then I will not be able to take additional levels of Fighter or Monk.
I agree it takes time and looks fuzzy, but it isn't as hard to make them 1" squares as it seems to be. The only issue I've had converting maps to a roughly 1" square is the maps that have 1 square = 10 feet. Those are hard to make work. The players at my tables LOVE seeing the actual maps for the custom maps in the scenarios since it makes it more immersive for them. I know it isn't cost effective for everyone to do so, but I've got resources to make it happen. Also, if they do include the maps with 1" squares, the files themselves would be HUGE.
I didn't realize how may total tables we had, but things are looking up for CogCon again. I want to thank Barb and Allen for getting this organized every year with the help of the S&T Gaming Association. If it wasn't for them, there wouldn't be a CogCon.
Also, a big thanks to everyone who judged and to the Venture Officers who made the trip to Rolla with prize support.
There were lots of new players this year and I hope to keep seeing them in the future.
I know it's kind of short notice, but I want to see if I need to pack my PFS gear. I'll be in Buffalo NY from October 4rd to October 9th and was wondering if there were any PFS games that I could join while my wife is attending a conference there. Travel distance is limited, but I will have transportation available. Also, play time isn't a limiting issue, as long as I know when we will be starting. If you don't want to post publicly, I'll be glad to talk in private messages.
I know that there are online PFS games available as well, but I'm not 100% certain what my Internet access is going to be (ie. hotel, hotspot, etc..).
