Scarab Sages

Can you apply any of these goals retroactively to a PC? At first glance, I'm pretty sure my Scarab Sages PC has fulfilled at least 2-3 of the SS goals.

I will have to work them a little to make them double sided and perhaps half size


A printer-friendly, art-free version would be appreciated.

Alphabetization would be appreciated as well.

Silver Crusade

Very excellent :)

.... alphabetize what? Its 7 pages that you cut out/fold and try to keep a hold of.


Alphabetize the cards by faction. Though I could see Grand Lodge being placed first.

Also, a nice fan project might be to come up with a version that has the respective, compiled faction traits on the back if one were to print front & back.

I thought about that a little too late (Already printed the card on one side of the paper for both PCs) If I had been thinking ahead, I would have printed it on both sides of the paper, but upside down on side 2, so the boons on one side were opposite the description on the other side. That way I could cut it in half and have 2 half page cards.

Since I already have 2 full page journal cards, and only 3 PCs that have a shot at earning Season 6 JC progress, I'll just print next seasons on the back of this season's card. That way, I have both seasons on one sheet of paper (which fits better in my folders with the full page character sheets)

I also know you can mess with "pages printed per page" settings in the print menu to shrink them down a bit as well.

I put them on 4x6 cards, front/back. Printed 3 sets and handed them out at my tables. Great fun!


Great looking new Season 7 cards. My first thought looking through the cards though is which ones are Season 6 and which are Season 7? Any chance that the new Season 7 cards could be watermarked or (more) clearly marked as season 7 someway?

Each Season 7 card has the number seven printed on the lower right corner to help distinguish it from its Season 6 counterpart.


I have an additional question on the cards looking through them, the instructions that were included in the season 7 file. I understand that completing boxes on the new season card do not count towards previous cards. The examples included make that very clear. What I am not so clear on is if previous season card completion count toward the new season.

So if I have completed say one objective on the season six card, and one on the season seven card. Do I now qualify for the 2+ goals on the season 7 card?

Paizo Employee Developer

No, you qualify for the benefit on the Season 6 card. Since you completed at least one goal on the card, you now qualify to keep using that card and can fill out goals on both cards (only a single box per adventure, not a single box per card per adventure).

Note that the faction card rules discuss what happens if your cards have duplicate goals that you earn on both.

Sczarni

Thank you for including a GMing goal. Some players need a friendly push to try sitting on the other side of the screen.


Season 8 for the Exchange: Wouldn't it be better for them to be using Diplomacy instead of Intimidate for their one goal?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

is there a version that has each faction on a single page like previous seasons, instead of split?


Thanks for the new cards. I noticed these have my email watermarked on them. Would it be possible to get these without the email watermark? I usually print extras to hand out at our local PFS but would prefer not handing out my email.

The Exchange is made up of Qadira and Sczarni...some of us aren't merchants.

Just came across these and I think they are FANTASTIC! I have played or run over 50 scenarios over the past few years but sadly, I think faction missions have been accomplished in less than 15% of that total. These cards actually allow you to make some sort of progress in many more games and offer nice rewards for being a diligent player. It does a great job of tying your PC to his faction in more than just a nominal way. And thank you for rewarding the GMs as well!

Paizo, you rock...


Good to see some free faction journal card (teh cards could act as a springboard for character inspiration in a non-PFS way too) stuff out there. ;)

Thanks for the updated goals!
Are you going to release a full sheet version of Season 9 faction goals document?

I'd love to know how some people are supposed to fulfill the Adventure Card Game goal that a couple of factions have.

Is there any chance that we can get the one page per faction setup that the other Seasons have had for the Season 9 cards?

I would also appreciate to have a single faction per page.

Yeah, I'm over here trying to figure out the logistics and cost of printing out all of the journal cards, cutting them in half, and scanning them to make my own 1-pages. I keep digital copies of the faction journals and the one pagers have been a godsend.

Nope. Both the guide and the faction card download specify "instead of making a skill check." There's no skill check associated with those goals, and so you can't buy them off.

Granted, I'd really like it if it worked like you think. That would help fill out some of my other cards.

Hey folks, I'll try to get a full-page version available in the download sometime before the end of the week. We overlooked that we'd provided this for Season 8, and apologize for the inconvenience!

Thanks Chris, no need to apologize.


Am I the only one who thinks this layout is sub-optimal?

Please format this product:
Top of page: Faction Rewards.
Bottom of page: Faction check boxes. At your option, this section an be upside down.

This way I can kill HALF as many trees, printing one page, not two, when I desire to print a card for a character.

Thank you.

Thank you, the double-sided once is nice, but the full-page version is easier to prevent it from slipping out of your character folio.

I don't play the card game. I'll never be able to accomplish some goals so I am upset that some of my characters are handicapped by not being able to get all eight goals.

Chris Lambertz, I can't imagine that Paizo forgot that these are faction journal cards for Pathfinder RPG. I think Paizo is doing this intentionally, trying to manipulate us into spending more money. I don't think "manipulative" is the image Paizo wants to present to its customers.

Don't make the goals things you can't accomplish by playing Pathfinder RPG!

No boon requires completing 8 goals. You can still earn the third boon by applying GM credit to the character. I understand that not everyone enjoys GMing or taking credit, but it can be done.

Also, Chris does not write the faction cards. Your issue is with John Compton and Linda Zayas-Palmer, according to the final page.


TriOmegaZero, some rewards depend on the number of goals, e.g. Dark Archive Enduring Scholar "apply a bonus equal to 1 + half the number of goals you have completed". 7 or 8 give different bonuses. I mainly GM; some of my characters have only the last line of boxes checked off. I only addressed Chris because he announced them and commented about 1-side versions.
Chris, I'm sorry if you were the wrong person to address my complaint to.

I am aware of the fact that the difference of a single +1 can be the deciding factor in some rolls. I do not find that a bigger deal than rewarding players of Paizo's other organized play campaigns for their participation and yes, encouraging those who only play one campaign to check out the others. Ask your VO to run a game or two for you if you can, a pregen deck can be built with only a little effort. If you don't have access to a VO, the best I can offer is checking to see if any conventions you will attend have an ACG presence.

In any event, I am sure John and Linda will take your feedback into consideration for next seasons cards.

This file has now been updated with the full sheet version of the Faction Journal Cards.

Dark Archive

THANK YOU!!!!!!


The season 8 download included faction cards for 6 and 7 as well (presumably in case something got spilled at the table.) I think that the original season 9 download included these as well.

Could those be re-added to the new download?
