2 positive channeling clerics, one with favored class boosts to get Channeled Revival.

1 paladin with Covering Defense and Missile Shield.

Everyone sprang for a casting of heroes feast and life bubble, which made a lot of the diseases a non-issue.

.

How can you get channeled revival during bonekeep?? That requires 11th level cleric access, and there is no favored class bonus that boosts channel dice as far as I can find. So if it is possible for society play, would love to find out How.

If it would break invisibility it would break the no PVP rule.

No inhibiting the other characters
No putting spell statuses on the other character
No cutting things that other characters are dangling from

No messing with the NPCs other players need for their faction mission
No messing with the other pcs pets or minions

I like this rule, and these guidelines... but the ones that are still up there?

Yeaaaah, All of these have happened at tables I've been at at one point or another, in at least one case where someone was being annoying at the table the witch misfortune and then Silenced the character just so we could talk to the npcs without getting ourselves killed...

And on a couple of occasions I've been forced to chase after another players character going... Don't kill him! He's my faction mission! Only to be forced to watch as they cut him down because I am not allowed to use nonlethal force to pacify crazed slaughter monkey scarzni.....

A very recent chapter was where we as pathfinders made an agreement with a woman as part of the module... so she comes out to talk to us after we gave our word... and the gunslinger pulls his gun and attacks her... and I am standing there stuck as the LAWFUL GOOD Inquisitor who gave his word to the lady she would be safe, and I am unable to take any action against the party except try to use nonlethal force to knock her down after her surrender (since they were using LETHAL and I couldn't heal her enough to matter...) When what I really wanted to do at that point would be try to grapple the gunslinger and beat him unconscious...

Maybe I just had some weird tables.. or maybe I am just weird..

This came up this week as I had a player at my table who was playing to apply his pregen chronicle to a brand new level 1. The chronicle comes with a spiffy little flavorful boon, as well as some nice eventual item access. However I wanted to make sure I did it right in granting him access to all the boons at level 1 and eventual item access he had earned in the scenario, as well as the 500 gp.

Just today I sat down with my physical copy of this book, and opened it up only to have several of the pages basically slide right out as soon as I came to them. Right now I have two groups of pages that have fallen out.. 21-28, and 43-58, a pretty large portion of the book. The book itself is in otherwise pristine condition, and I am still able to read the pages now to prep for my group, though I worry about them getting lost later. I do have the pdf from the subscription as a backup, though I wanted to know if there is a way to get a replacement copy for the table. The entire book seems fine other then the fact that is falling apart though, so there is that. and I went and checked the other books in the ap and they seem to be just fine in regards to their binding. First real issue I have had with one of your books falling apart on me to be honest so not sure what to say. I can provide pictures of the book and the separated pages if needed as well.

I cancelled the flip-mat Lairs as that item's inventory was off and is no longer available.

The payment is failing due to a mismatch between the billing address your bank has on file and the one on the order's payment method.

USPS Priority 2-5 business days is how it is currently set.
UPS 3-5 business days is $14.04
2nd day is $33.23
Next Day is $75.41

If you choose next day or 2 day, call customer service Thursday morning to make sure it is correctly updated and shipped ASAP.

All of our mail has been picked up for the day and we are closed tomorrow, so while packages may still be processed for shipping tonight, no more packages are leaving the building at this point tonight.

thanks
sara marie

well damn. will have to sort that out then, and at 75 dollars when it wont even get it here by Christmas I might as well go buy the items from the store. While I kind of hate to do it, please cancel the entire order, and I will seek other gift alternatives (and have already started doing so being worried about time.)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

hey, I got my first great golem sale shipment recently, and checked to see why my other one hadn't arrived yet, only to discover it had a payment declined issue somehow.... the big question is can the order still be altered? if I can drop AP #42 and the flip map maybe I can afford the shipping change to get it here in time for at least right after Christmas... honestly don't know what to do at this point since the order was mostly for a gift as I have the items myself... any idea when it would get here or be shipped if I change the payment and have it go as is? and if there are faster shipping options and how much?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

hey, there is an item in my sidecart set to ship with the december shipment, gamemastery map pack lairs. Which i have purchased on the great golem sale. If i have not already been charged for this item (i don't think i have.) could i please have it removed from the sidecart as i have just purchased it from you during the (admittedly awesome) great golem sale.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Add me to the list of those with the glitch to correct!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Just double checking on this to make sure everything is ok as it is listed pending now but hasn't shipped yet. Really hoping to get the august shipment before the september one.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hey there, I have been back from the trip for a bit now and went to check on this to see when i could expect it to arrive. The order is still showing suspended on the page though. So it can be unsuspended at any time and shipped out.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I just got back into Arizona, and this order can now ship any time! I look forward to getting it and thanks for holding it for me!

Thank you very much! I look forward to when I can finally pick it up!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Thank you very much for placing it on hold for me until then! However it will not let me subscribe to the baseset + add on as it already has me subscribed for just the add on. (somehow the base set was not an option when i went there via the page earlier). So can the base set be added to my subscription or the subscription i set up be removed so i can resubscribe via that link?

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Ongoing Subscription was removed from your shopping cart because you are already subscribed.

is what i see sadly at the current time.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

My august shipment is one of the ones I am really looking forwards to, however I have recently learned I need to head out of state to watch over a sick family member for a couple weeks. I will be leaving town aug 23rd and not returning until Sep 2nd. Unfortunately that looks to be the point in time in which my shipment might arrive, if it doesn't look to be able to ship to arrive before the 22nd, is it possible to have the shipment held so it arrives after the 2nd? Other options would be having it ship with the September shipment... though I would hate the delay somewhat. Or switching it to shipping as soon as possible with 2 day shipping if that would get it here in time? Or I could try to have someone I trust check outside the door every few days though I would rather not resort to that. Also out of curiosity, is there a way to Start the pathfinder card game subscription with the Base set? (which hasn't shipped yet to my knowledge.) Or should I go through amazon and get it cheaper.

Hoping for some help with these questions if you have the time.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I just received my order today and was really worried when I saw the torn up packaging, and even more worried when I saw what was inside. My adventure path guide is all torn up and bent in two places so it is hard to open without damaging much less read. Almost more importantly though, the combat pad I ordered is seriously damaged as well. and while I have yet to remove it from the packaging, I cannot imagine using it at the table with the large bend up in one corner, and the curve forced in the other. Several of the magnets look damaged as well, though I do not intend to open the package to find out. Is it possible to send these damaged items back in order to get working ones?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That makes sense then! thanks for letting me know what was going on!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

hey I just got my message that my order is ready to ship, only I actually got two emails, each saying that they are shipping 2 of the items.... was the order broken up and shipped twice instead of at once? should I be looking for two packages? does this mean extra shipping fees?

just a little confused as to whether I am looking for one package or two, esp as I was a little worried to see only a part of the order shipped. before finding the second email

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hey, the order was placed quite a while ago, and I was expecting it over a week ago, so I logged in to see what was going on and it says it is still pending? so it hasn't even shipped yet? The order was paid for on June 21st so over two weeks ago now. Is there any eta on this? or will it just be shipped with my next subscription?(an option I would have chosen at the time if the subscription shipment hadn't been over 3 weeks away) Just like some idea what is going on if possible


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

actually it was on several items i had been wanting to buy that didn't go on sale... blood of fiends and blood of angels print versions... were full regular price... for now i just removed them from the cart... and will continue waiting to buy them probably


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It isn't showing my pathfinder advantage benefit when i try to purchase things this weekend... even though i am shipping the items with my next subscription purchase... is black friday sale messing with the prices? for the time being i removed the non friday things from my order and have held off on finalizing it... please respond soon due to sale timing...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

please cancel just the roleplaying game subscription on my account... things are getting tighter then expected this holiday season


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Hey i know that the post said that you were running a bit behind on shipments for august, so i haven't posted before. But starting to get a bit worried about my subscription shipment which has been stuck at pending for ages. Hoping it isn't going to be delayed until september or anything, but if it is could you lemme know?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Please cancel my Paizo Roleplaying main subscription for now, due to both money issues and the fact that we aren't terribly interested in the next few boxes coming up. I'll hopefully be able to resubscribe later. and would like to keep my AP subscription as it is.

Due to the inclement weather in the Seattle area earlier this month, our warehouse was closed for a week. This resulted in a large backlog of orders going out.

All you have to do to tell me about your favorite time running a monster as a PC.

Oh boy, this definitely brings back memories... we were visiting a mountain dungeon complex run by a mad wizard... and ended up with a total party kill (capture actually.) so we had a fun little scene where the gm as wizard taunted our helpless and caged pcs about how we were going to help replace all the monsters we killed, before we all blacked out. when we all woke up again, in different parts of the complex, with no equipment, we were all different monsters, and only had so long to find each other (and figure out that the manticore you are fighting is actually your damn wizard...) and find a cure.

It was an absolute blast playing around with a displacer beast stats as a rogue, especially when the gm would chime in with fun things like your thoughts are becoming increasingly beastial, and that goblin (the fighter lol) is looking increasingly tasty. (i swear he caught me salivating over him a few times...) Major fun, and in the end a dead wizard and our forms back.

Once again i wish to cancel my campaign setting subscription since as usual the map folio is of 0 interest to me nor does it really expand the campaign world any. I will renew my subscription as soon as possible after the map folio has passed however ^.^

Okay...rake, I'm not sure how you'd do that. That ability simply says it's listed in the monster entry, so I'm not sure how that'd interact with the Beastmorph Alchemist. The fact that it states that you simply gain the ability says to me that you don't base it off a creature. I'd simply rule that and special attack based on a physical nature would be based off of the alchemist's unarmed attacks, but that would make it rather weak I think.

Honestly, this is a really good question, and I actually might be wrong. Try waiting for a few more thoughts to come in on the matter, as I'm beginning to second guess my own answer.

Rake is pretty simple i'd think, whats your claw damage? assuming it gives you the claws for the rake and you have none yourself, use base medium creature claw damage. ie (1d4), rake is then 2d4+ 1/2 str (2 claw damage, and a secondary attack so half str), boom alchemist with rake... not as intimidating as it might sound honestly...

As a longtime rulebook subscriber, i have been universally happy with this subscription, only to check my list to see what was coming up, and find instead of the beastiary 3, which i thought was my next subscription item, instead i am getting a begginer box set? This item holds absolutely no allure for me or my group, as i have all the core books already, like i would expect most subscribers would have at least the regular core book. Making this sadly an extremely undesireable item to me.

I really hate to ask, but is there a way to have this box set removed from my subscription list, or failing that, to cancel the core subscription until after it is passed and resubscribe me for the rest afterwards?

If this isn't possible, ill still pick up the slack and purchase the item, but it seems a very strange thing to me to have in the middle of a subscription.

I've set your Dungeons of Golarion to ship right away, additionally, I have poked the technical team regarding the display for the My Subscriptions page. It should show "late-July" for shipping now. Please note, if you want the to get the Pathfinder Advantage discount on this book, you will need to wait until the late-July shipment as the discount doesn't kick in until your first AP volume ships. If you decide to put Dungeons back into your sidecart and let it wait until the end of July, please let us know ASAP as it will likely ship tomorrow morning.

thanks
sara marie

Thank you very much. thats exactly what i would like. Speaking of the ap subscription, it seems to have the same problem almost that the campaign subscription did. 1st part of jade regent is late july, 6th part of carrion crown is early august( aug 4th it says..) so to get started on jade regent properly i had to purchase it for starting with carrion crown 6? which doesn't make much sense, but jade regent is a must have for our group so if i have to i have to.

Because Dungeons and Carrion Crown map folio ended up being released at the same time, starting the subscription apparently has some interesting issues.

Go ahead to start with the Field Guide. Let me know when you have done this and I will add Dungeons to your account.

I have done so.

I completely agree that Envy and Sloth need to be expanded. The bathhouse theme for Sloth is great, so keeping that will work well. Something I wanted to do was have the mini-boss for one (or more) of the halls be a spell. The PC's have to get past a very powerful, magical affect to get to whatever magic liquid they need.

ok. well i am just finishing up book five for my group (and let me say, runeforge is crazy. and the first thing i realized when i was looking through the dungeon is that while each area is absolutely fine for a lab or workspace. these people were always intended to Live there for the rest of their lives... thus to most of the areas i added a second level accessible by a staircase(either hidden or non) to living areas. in a few places like wrath this was a large area filled with a forced breeding pit, part of a partially collapsed arena, and the sinspawn pen (with hints of a sinspawn breeding experiment as well, because my players don't mind R or X rated bits in an campaign focused on the seven deadlies.)

going to go over some of the changes i made by area, as well as maybe a few suggestions on other ways to handle it.

To start the ones you mentioned. sloth and envy

Sloth- The best thing ever with sloth i found is the fact they DIDN't give me a map, it made me be creative and come up with the fact that slothful people wouldn't care to wander around long tunnels or passages on their own... so for sloth i just made some hallways and specific rooms. (not actually connected) The trick with the labyrinth is that the place twists and turns to bring you where you want to go at that second, a perfect thing for slothful people.... but hell if you have a group wandering around not realizing they need to focus on a destination. when they got hungry they found the messy hall (with a cornucopia and a small tribe of goblins that worshiped the great food producing thing... dangerous goblins living here, but still much amusement was had with thrown food improvised weapons vs a surprised spellcaster..) the baths, and other suitably decadent locations, deteremined at random until they figured the trick out. (someone is always thinking about/wanting something after all)(made up a list of rooms and a 1d10 chart to find em)

Envy- Envy was the most fun for me honestly, though i had to expand the abjurant halls somewhat, it let me play once again with an older mechanic... haunts! in one of the southern rooms i placed a nasty haunt that envyed the fact that the player was still alive and tried to take that life energy... in another there was a haunt that envied the players body.. and tried to posses the player(for a good few rounds of amusing fun...), and of course the oldest bit of all with the abjurant lord's corpse sitting there in his half destroyed library(if i cant have it no one can), his body still absorbing magic and life force from the area each round... it really played up the folly and danger of the sin,especially with the little snippets of appropriate visions and words plaguing the characters(vision of a desperate mage grabbing you while ranting over you still living while they aren't and how unfair it was... thinking your the lord of envy while surrounded by an alliance of the others who (of course) are out to kill you because they envy your obvious greatness and even while wounded you wont let them get away with this.... even if the "combat" in that area was only minor, it definitely perked things up a lot.

Wrath- as said, i took the entry area, and made the red teleport circle go to the other level, which had the breeding areas, the partial arena, the small training area where several children were becoming the next breed of wrathful warriors(and it was fun to see the moral question of what to do with a swarm of raging children... to retaliate. or not?-used the mob rules for them) the holding pen for created sinspawn, and a few other small connected areas.

Greed- Greed didn't change much, the addition of a small horde in the "living" level which i added branching off from stairs in each of the pool rooms (instead of a full level i put a group of 4 rooms above each pool room in a square basically, it worked fine, especially since it let me play some more with transmuting traps and tricks the older mages left.

Lust- Lust was easy enough, since at one point there WAS supposed to be a full group of people there, i made a trap door under the pavillion which led down to their richly furnished old corridors, complete with some summoning chambers, murals of extremely debauched acts, as well as a few interesting situations... including a "training" room that looked more like a dungeon, and some Animate objects that attempted to chain down and "train" the first few people in the room, i would say more, especially about certain assimar learning about things that do and don't fit... except then i would have to rate the post x rated...

Pride- Pride was down and out hilarious. no holds barred... the mirror trap is insanely fun, esp with an amusing group... the eldritch knight duplicates herself first. followed by the cleric... they then run back down the hallway to avoid fighting in an area where the rest of the party will duplicate themselves... (not realizing the mirrors had limits), so they trade spells for a minute, but to avoid complications of which eldritch knight is the real one... the real one used the stalkers mask to duplicate sulani(the sorceress), and also cast mirror image... so now there are 7 sorceresses... not having a target that round, (since the doubles took cover behind the wall at the start of the hall while buffing) the sorceress also cast mirror image... bringing it to 14 sulani's in a tight space.. and a very confused cleric and rogue... the rogue figuring to take advantage of the confusion to avoid being targeted used his hat of disguise to Also become sulani.... so when the next round happened and the mirror foes looked. there were now 15 sorceresses, and one very confused cleric... which led to one of the eldritch knights greasing the floor and ducking back, while the other mirror imaged as well and used Their duplicated stalkers mask... also to look like sulani...
leading to the next round with almost 20 sulanis in the corridor, and about 6 of them slipping around on the floor like idiots (because real sorceresses cant make reflex saves.... and a hysterically laughing sulani(the rogue) who cant belive the situation...... and since the sulani on the floor couldn't tell who was who or what was going on.... they then lightning bolted the laughing sulani because it must be evil to laugh at her right?
very crazy but probably the best game session we've had in a long time... the simulacrums were definitely anticlimactic. and i didn't need to add anything else to the area other then a statue gallery filled with veraxis's own images (two of which were animate)... after all he was so prideful he didn't need a large staff

Gluttony is what they are gearing up for now.. and other then expand the "crypt" theme of the area slightly by placing a couple more mausuleums , it also doesn't need much.

But there, hope that was some of the ideas you were looking for, if not hopefully it helped or was at least amusing.

I guess lots of half-nude fey makes for a decent movie, but I think other adventuring paths would be better suited. Building a Kingdom over years is far too essential to the Kingmaker plot to make it into a movie or even a book series.

Runelords is well suited but requires two or three movies, so it's not a good idea for a first project. It's important to remember that sword fights tend to last a lot longer than gun fights, so movies using swords will either have a lot less fighting or be a lot longer.
Crimson Throne would work decently well, but again it's a bit much for a single movie, especially since you'd need to include the dragon's first defeat for people to be able to understand what's going on.
Second Darkness is probably the first AP that could make a good movie. Calling down asteroids is a pretty powerful image, and it has more than enough stuff that doesn't add to the storyline that can be cut.
Legacy of Fire could visually be very impressive, but it's too much for a single movie. With locations like the city of brass, there just needs to be enough time to really show a location.
Council of Thieves has powerful imagery, especially the devils as energy source and pillars of fire, but it's probably not suited for the screen. It would be too much law enforcement crossed with sword and sorcery; not the most compatible fan bases.
Serpent Skull could probably make a good movie; something like Predator with S&S. Or perhaps a bit more like Alien in the jungle.
Carrion Crown and Jade Regent sound like they'd make decent horror movies. I'm not sure is S&S crossed with horror has a large enough fan base to make it worthwhile. Although those would be more about hte setting rather than following the plot.

But the written APs aside, I think a movie about an adventuring group setting out to close the Worldwound would be a good idea for testing the audience. Really capturing an AP is very hard to do in a single movie.

I think you missed the entire point there.. no one is capturing an entire ap, but doing a book of the ap as a play. it would be like the harry potter movies.. each book of the ap a seperate production... maybe with the finale split in two as well.... or maybe an epic miniseries.... i could so get into a well done kingmaker miniseries...

If we are placing our requests for awesome AP..

Definitely Linnorn kings.. there is so much awesome that could be fit into that area... clan wars.. rampaging linnorn.. evil witches... yeah lets do that!

For a City based AP (which after playing in CoCT i would desperately love to do again..) Why not do Absalom! The haven of the starstone! With so many ruins around the area, history, and intrigue in the largest city in the world... it could easily be an awesome site for a 6 book ap.. caught up in intrigue... theft... political control... yeah why not!

and if we are just plain going for the awesome... lets have an ap based on the mana wastes... start out in nex or another nearby region... learn of the location of or someone ELSE has learned of the location of one of the artifacts in the wastes... try to recover it or find the ancient counter to said artifiact the other mage used before open war and destruction springs out again? who wouldn't love it!

maybe a nonhuman ap? or one focused on them? this could be very awesome as well... the elves were pretty central in second darkness. why not a dwarf/orc war ap... plenty of politics in dwarven cities as well, and orcs have a ton going for them if they could find a powerful enough warleader to get behind...

So many different things i'd love to see the paizo AP crew get behind... must keep buying aps....

Which is why Jade Regent will have an unfair and arbitrary limitation on teleporting the group from one side of the world to the other.

*cringe* I can hear one of my players complaining already. :(
Yeah in RotRL one of my player(s) was going question after question on why he couldn't teleport to the lost city.

Simplest answer. i always enforce the rule... you cannot teleport *SAFELY* to anyplace you or the one doing the teleport has not seen. Answers 99% of the problems right there... sure you can use pictures or descriptions... but those always have built in innaccuracies and incur risks most intelligent(ie high level) spellcasters aren't willing to take unless they have strong personal reasons to.

This brings in higher level scrying (and many important places like Xin Shalast would be hard/dangerous to scry, and may attract the notice of people in those places), studying the location, and THEN procuring the teleport... usually not just one spell. but several high level spells in conjunction, which not only begins to get expensive quickly, can still possibly be dangerous. Hell teleporting in front of one of the largest landmarks in the city... (say... castle korvosa)... will get you swarmed with gaurds faster then a pirana can strip a halfling most days. So remember! always use caution when bouncing around realities!

That said, there'll be some stuff in the Player's Guide that'll talk about an option where the PCs actually PLAY characters like Ameiko and the other key NPCs who'll be appearing in the AP, like Shalelu and a few others with ties to Sandpoint. In this case, the assumption will either be that the PCs are playing 1st level versions of these characters that may or may not follow their current in-print incarnations. ALL of the primary NPCs in Jade Regent will have a fair amount of art depicting them, in any case, so that might further limit what steps GMs might want to take in rebuilding the characters\0x1F\0x2014the new art for Ameiko, for example, shows her wearing leather armor and carrying a rapier and a samishen, so if she's not a bard in your game, that might be weird.

This sounds like a lot of fun, and good to have more options for the players in the players guides... that mentioned... Iconics! they aren't in the AP anymore itself, so why not put them in the players guide! My group always likes to have one or more of the iconics around as an NPC/PC/Mascot, and the level one blurbs for the iconics aren't that much space.. esp when you aren't printing the players guides!

We haven't done printed copies of the Player's Guides since Legacy of Fire.

Sounds like the perfect place to put the AP's iconic's in then since they aren't in the books themselves now!

As my friend and fellow gm has taken a definite (and possibly unholy) liking to the Carrion crown AP, and is planning on running it once it is fully out, I am canceling my AP subscription for the duration of the carrion crown path to avoid spoiling the surprise for myself. I look forward to resubscribing for Jade regent most likely, and wish to keep my other subscriptions active.
