If you purchase any of the Pathfinder Tales novels, each one has a PFS legal special chronicle sheet with nice boons & items which is a free download on each individual novel's description page. Just be sure to have the novel on hand when using any of it's boons and/or items.

I used to back in the day when I played D&D 2nd ed. Not much anymore since we play in public venues. Midnight Syndicate has awesome stuff. Conan soundtrack and most other fantasy movie soundtracks work.

Rant about dice
Can we please phrase this in a manner that is less accusatory towards the players? I would prefer this did not devolve into a thread of GMs b&@@~ing about players and would much rather see genuine suggestions from both GMs and players as to what can be done to make the game more fun for GMs.

Ah, ok. Sorry.

To make the game more fun for the GM, players should come prepared. Know what your PC can do. Know your spells, special abilities, feats, and so on. Less time searching rulebooks during a game equals more fun for all.

Totally!!!

I would like to see less complaining from players when a GM makes a ruling about, of all things, dice. I've had players whine because I didn't want them using edice. I've also had players whine about not using two ten siders for percentile dice. They wanted to roll a d20 instead (1-4 is 20%) or a d6 where odd is above 50%, even is under 50%. Yes, I am old school, but c'mon! Just use proper dice. It has made some arguements at the table which were really uncalled for.

Grand Lodge ***

Very interested!

Grand Lodge ***

Unfortunately, you cannot change the order of encounters. Just try to make the final encounter as epic as possible. Use interesting tactics. GM it as awesome as you can.

Grand Lodge ***

Hooray! More quests! Will this be a series of six quests just like Silverhex Chronicles?

Grand Lodge ***

I also play in a large game store where noise can bea problem. I try to sit in a spot closest to the GM. If one of those spots is already taken, I politely state my problem and the other person is thoughtfully considerate enough to let me take that seat. I usually have to lean in a bit to hear the GM more clearly or I may need to ask for something to be repeated but it doesn't bother anyone.

Grand Lodge ***

For some reason I find myself not wanting to go first in initiative. I like to know what the rest of the party is going to do first. If I'm playing a rogue I'd hate to move into melee first then find out the wizard wanted to cast a fireball or even burning hands. I know evasion may save my skin but sometimes the dice don't roll too hot.

Grand Lodge ***

You can only start with the one you completed tonight. The ones before do not count since the Faction Cards came out after you completed those scenarios. Basically, the cards came out on the 13th of April. Anything you did before then does not count.

Grand Lodge ***

Oh, sorry. I didn't understand your question. You can only check off boxes after completing missions on future scenarios. Not ones you did in the past.

Grand Lodge ***

You cannot retroactively complete missions.

Grand Lodge ***

Is this item in a "PFS Scenario" or in something else, like, an Adventure Path encounter, or in a Technology Guide?

I never saw an answer (unless I overlooked it). So, are these legal for Core?
It seems to be the case, they are effectively like chronicle sheets in that regard (allowing limited access to non-core sources).

Thank you for the response.

Yeah, it does seem like all the rewards are pretty generic. +1 to Acrobatics or a knowledge skill, -1 PP for item purchase, etc...

I really like these and printed out one of each. I'm sticking only one of each faction card to a PC. A little extra fun while playing that PC. Nice.

So excited! Like little mini quests!

Grand Lodge

Go with a 15 or 16 Chr max at first level. You'll need Dex for AC. You can always boost Chr later on with items. I never go below a 10 on any ability at first level for PFS.

Grand Lodge ***

All good here. I have read that many people are having problems with missing tables of credit especially the re coding they did last week.

Oh I misunderstood that recommendation, will look into it.

The problem is that there is no island there at the moment, maybe I should look into purchasing many Stone Shapes or perhaps opening a portal to some dimension above it and just manually moving the land...

I'm still trying to understand how you would do this in Society Play by not having a vanity but instead using your your own spells & resourses. I don't think it would carry over into scenarios unless you are playing a PFS sanctioned AP.

Anyway, would a spell like hallucinatory terrain work? Or Major Creation?

Grand Lodge

Your question seems to be for a home game and not a Society question. Unless I am wrong. What does your question have to do with PFS?

Grand Lodge

Flagged to be moved to non-PFS boards

Grand Lodge ***

Like Mystic Lemure said, let us know how the next game goes.

Grand Lodge ***

Good to hear things went well and that you will continue playing. Cheers!

I'm relatively new and recently been to a local PFS event at a game store. Unless it's a group of close friends, the GM running the game should be a pretty nice guy.

Remember that when you hit level 2, you can totally respec your character.

You can only re-make your character before leveling up to second.

Grand Lodge ***

Ugh. A coin. The Exchange faction. Took me a minute.

Grand Lodge ***

Is that a golden egg between the two hands?

Grand Lodge

Switch hitter rogue. Two-weapon fighting (short swords). Get weapon focus feat & finesse rogue. It will help a lot. Then get a longbow with point blank shot, precise sot, deadly aim. My 9th level vanilla rogue/shadowdancer is AwESomE!!!!

Edit: correct wouldn't to would of

Sorry to be a grammar freak, but correctly it should be 'would have'.

Anyway, try a non-PFS Pathfinder game for a bit then go into PFS later when you have more rules knowledge. It helped me immensely.

Grand Lodge ***

Jtaylor, maybe you should try joining or getting together a non-PFS Pathfinder game. This way you can play at a more comfortable pace and learn things as you go. Even doing this along with some PFS games here and there will help you learn quite a lot about various rules and how the system works.

The Devil we Know was a terrible choice for a "Pathfinder for Beginners" game. And, yes, you had a bad GM. Play an actual beginner scenario (First Steps, The Confirmation, Silverhex Chronicles, or Wounded Wisp) to get the hang of things.

Grand Lodge ***

I'm starting to understand your reasoning, Claude. As a PFS GM, I wouldn't have a problem with someone using only 19 points, but, like the rules state, it is a "20 point" buy.

Grand Lodge ***

This is another April Fools joke post, right? Seriously?

Grand Lodge ***

12 noon to 12 midnight?

Grand Lodge ***

I don't get it, Tamec. "They sneak (everyone either has stealth)" ?

Grand Lodge

So, umm, do you have a question? Why is this in the GM thread?

Grand Lodge ***

Lol! My Pathfinder Team got killed. No coffee for me.

Grand Lodge ***

Ah. Ok, thanks.

Grand Lodge ***

Is there a list of the 4 Star Exclusives anywhere?

Grand Lodge ***

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yes, please FAQ flying & encumbrance. Lots of Table variations & confusion in my neck of the woods.

Grand Lodge ***

Congratulations! Best wishes to you and your family.

Can a druid use a stone bow?

It is a simple weapon. However, druid's do not have simple weapon proficiency.

They have no proficiency with any bows either, so unless the GM says yes, I see 'no' being the answer.

Ah, ok thanks. I forgot theu don't have simple weapon proficiency and can only choose from a list of weapons. I was going to make a druid for PFS and figured the stone bow was a good fit for a druid.

Grand Lodge ***

Ok, thanks.

Add a couple other blog posts to the list:

Golarion Day: Other Gods and New Subdomains
Golarion Day: Subdomains for Everyone!

Not sure we need this thread to be stickied, though. All of it is already available on the Additional Resources page.

Is the Pharasma friendly Death domain stuff legal? There was no answer on the blog post.

Grand Lodge

I like Star Rise Spire. Or Eye of Abendego?

Grand Lodge ***

Ok. Yeah, probably just my dumb phone.

Grand Lodge ***

I just went to the additional resources page and it's completely blank. You guys having this problem?
