i vote- NO.. lets keep it as simple as possible...

that being said i dont mind if thats something thats unlocked later..

Dark Archive ****

just teasing.. since last goblin boon was auctioned off not long ago..

hopefully soon.. we dont have to see posts about people looking for goblin feats/traits and such

Dark Archive ****

amd now that the last goblin boon is finally gone....

we dont have to hear people complain about them anymore right ?

Dark Archive ****

so double , triple super not allowed...

Dark Archive ****

did you check additional resources ?

Dark Archive ****

Yeah- that wont fly at my table either....

Dark Archive ****

well better just boot you to be safe...

I think I'm going to sit this one out.

Please, I'd love to hear what you have to say about me, a fairly experienced PFS player and GM who has verified he has all the books and/or PDFs to back up every trait, feat, spell, etc on all his characters, using Hero Lab as the primary storage medium for his characters.

Would you deny me playing at your table simply because I used Hero Labs? Would you perform a lengthy audit of my character and if you didn't find anything wrong hold a grudge?

I'b boot you.... just cuz i dont like you.....

but hey i am a jerk...

but the OP poster i would allow... as long as he has scans of his chronicles... but in all honesty i would expect issues like this to have table variation.

Dark Archive ****

technically the rules say you have to have/keep your chronicle sheet yes...

per page 35 in PFS guide = "Chronicle sheets record everything that a Pathfinder
Society character does over the course of her career
and serves as the official record of each character in the
campaign"

I am a pretty by the rules sorta guy.. but as long as you can pull up your info on tablet and can show them its would be ok with me.. you still need to keep them and keep record of gold spent,fame and all that good stuff... you could scan them into pdf and keep a folder of them on your tablet..

Dark Archive

if you dont take the lvl dips you get much better spells and you can makeup for the diving grace with a magic item to get better save..

take noble scion to get chat bonus to init and blast enemies before everyone else..

Dark Archive

its quite doable.. you will be losing out on alot of spellcasting ability though between lvl dips and the prestige class

but overall it should be a fun character..

Dark Archive ****

↑ best forum post ever

Dark Archive ****

it makes perfect sense.... to me.. that's why i dont allow them at my games..

it doesn't have to make sense to you.

my house...
my rules...
my table...

Dark Archive ****

here in cincinnati - we have so many bad gamers ( min maxers, cheaters, and just general douche bags)

thanks to these folks - i have people lined up to game at my table where i dont allow such non sense..

if everyone turned these fools away it would improve PFS for the masses....

if you dont want herolab at your table let people know ahead of time...they can print out a sheet and bring their resources if needed... or they can play a pre gen

Talk to your VO or event organizer about that.

They may not be happy with you keeping people from playing in the games they've set up or forcing them to shuffle people around at the last minute.

Its not really any of their business what i do within the confines of my home...

its only thru weeding out the bad players that we can truly enjoy ourselves... get rid of the min maxers and power gamers .. and your game becomes so much more fun...

Dark Archive ****

I Gm pfs games from my home...

I can refuse whoever i want.. for whatever reason i want...

new rule - no pink dice.. unless you are a little girl( then its just cute)...

GMs in PFS are specifically tasked with these duties. Yes, they are Paizo's copyright police, as you put it. You agree to PFS's conditions to play. You're the jerk for trying to ignore those rules in addition to feeling justified for doing so.

Some like myself.. i am just a jerk.. and like catching cheaters

i always have my tablet with me when i gm- If a person comes with a character and doesnt have the pdf( watermarked) or the book.. i will let them log into paizo site and pull up the books they own...

if they cant provide proof ( that they own the books..or the book iteself)

then i am more than happy to provide a pre gen...

I have seen to many players with pdf's that arent watermarked... and players who dont own any books and are playing a grippli...

Dark Archive ****

It's easy to remedy...

Just refuse to GM a table with such a character.
Myself I will flat out turn you away from my table with such characters( problem solved).

Dark Archive ****

This thread is a prime example of why i dislike powergamers....

Dark Archive ****

i bid on the boon when it was 30 dollars.. came back a few hours later and it was 400+ and just sorta chuckled and walked away...

this year I gm'd a table on SAT where the payer who won- was using his assassin boon.. Nice guy.. interesting character..fun game

Kudos to him for donating so much to the charity..\

Dark Archive ****

wow- did you really just try to rationalize assassinations as not evil ?

Dark Archive ****

there was 1 boon auctioned off for charity at gen con 2 years ago..

it went for 400+ dollars and was a 1 time thing...

and luckily PFS doesn't allow evil characters.. b/c it isn't very heroic to be evil...

Dark Archive ****

FOR a RAW answer- read the listing in PRD/Core rulebook- its that simple...

Dark Archive ****

hopefully no...

show me a party of pre gens who beats it in the time limit..and i will be impressed..

i still have a few tiefling boons.. hoping to find something useful to use them on

would love a magus fiend slayer.. but alas i rarely play anymore.. just gm

Dark Archive ****

the fletchling was a one time boon for a special event.. as was the goblin boon

there have been some interesting gen con auction boons
such as

android
spellslinger
skinwalker
assasin

I haven't seen any new tiefling gm boons yet.. but it is likely they will be given to GM's at conventions this upcoming season as they were in the past..

Dark Archive

When a sorcerer dons a robe of arcane heritage, the stitching pulls itself apart and reweaves to match her particular sorcerer bloodline. The wearer treats her sorcerer level as 4 higher than normal for the purpose of determining what bloodline powers she can use

i would say it most likely does not...

if you dont have sorcerer levels then you have nothing to gain..

Dark Archive ****

yeah..... that will never happen lol

Dark Archive ****

Benefit: The abilities of your animal companion or familiar are calculated as though your class were 4 levels higher, to a maximum effective druid level equal to your character level.

Special: You may select this feat more than once. The effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a different animal companion or familiar.

it will never go higher than your character lvl...

...except crafting items is not allowed in PFS. Thus the OP's question - how is it useful to swiftly craft things when you can't craft them?

it scares me that you have 2 gm stars and cant read the FAQ or additional resouces....

crafting is allowed for a alchemist

i heard next season the are opening up humans as a playable race...

Dark Archive ****

i doubt catfolk will become avail ever( to the public)

the boon was sold at GEN CON for charity for quite a large sum of money...

I for one hope they make less boons avail for races...

Dark Archive

i stand corrected - i googled the prestige class

the ability states

Twinned Channeling: When channeling energy, the envoy of balance can simultaneously release waves of positive and negative energy. She chooses a category of creatures (either living or undead), and this conjoined energy both heals and harms the affected creatures. Roll the amounts of damage healed and dealt separately. Treat the envoy of balance's effective cleric level as 2 lower than normal for the amounts of damage and the DC to halve damage taken. The envoy of balance can choose whether to include herself in either or both the healing and harming effects. If she has an ability that allows her to exclude targets from her channeled energy, such as the Selective Channelling feat, she can choose to exclude different targets from the healing effect than from the harming effect.

sounds like a waste of channels to me... you could wind up helping them...
note selective channeling only lets you chose up to your cha mod to not effect(targets).. so 50/50 chance you help the bad guys..

and then to to it off they nerf your channeling dmg... wow...

There isnt anything vague about it...

its 360gp each.. with a limit of 4
which isnt bad considering its a +2 enchantment on ammo

you cant do both at same time

you have to choose healing or damage

With the 24th cutoff for the playtest (that is VERY short IMO) does games played after the 24th count toward the boon as long as you already have 1 line filled in before the 24th?

No you need to finish it before 24th...

Dark Archive ****

you would still be limited to the gold of the quest..........

as as was said you could create a item... lot a barrel of trade goods.

a nice gm might allow you to make 1gp... LOL
