Please refer to the additional resources page for your answer. At this time the Race guide is not yet listed and therefore is not legal for play. Once the additional resources page is again updated it will describe what can and cannot be used from that book.

Its a penguin, blowing Grandmaster Brock a kiss. Come now, haven't you read the 53rd Edition of "Fauna of Golarion: An Expert's Guide"? The natives of the land observed such behavior and began to use the symbol (or the act) to indicate extreme happiness towards an individual.

Just *what* are they teaching these initiates these days...

Grand Lodge ** RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Good job getting that it's an animal, but the animal in question is about 20% cooler than a penguin.

How the heck do you get a pony out of that?

Grand Lodge ** RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

This, but facing the other way.

EDIT: For context, the character has just declared something to be "SO... AWESOME!!!" before making that face, so the emoticon of that face is a declaration of awesomeness.

Silver Crusade ****

I guess...


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I prefer emoticons that almost anyone can figure out, but that's just me :)

Pathfinder society people are so impatient in using their new book toys.

Legends of The Shining Jewel starts supporting the Advanced Player's Guide this month.

***** Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka CRobledo

You know what would be 3x as awesome? If we could rebuild to one of the new races (assuming there are new ones of course). We can dream. But at least my nameless next character with GM credit matter to be xxxxxxxxx.

Silver Crusade ****

I know if racial rebuilds were allowed and I got an Aasimar boon, that is what my paladin would be. He's based off my half-celestial Paladin from 3.5 that I got to play in a one shot.

While I highly doubt any races beyond what's already allowed will be available for PFS play (we don't need a huge wave of unusual races to hit the population), I do agree that (minor) rebuilds would be nice.

For example, if new racial traits are available, a one-time chance to change to one of those traits would be nice (like we had when the new factions came out). I understand that if a character is already created, allowing a long-standing character a change just isn't (likely) going to happen, but it would be nice.

Still, I definitely look forward to seeing the book having things available as future characters can benefit from anything PFS legal and it'll be fun for usage in home-games.

Hoping for new races in PFS... hope hope hoping! :)

I am hoping for the opposite.
Lets keep those races restricted for a more enjoyable and "realistic" gaming experience.

Also it would make the racial boons useless.
Which would be a slap in the face for many diehard PFS players.

To be fair, this is only true if the same races get opened up.

Which one is missing ;) . At this point there seems to be a boon for every imaginable race out there.

Also, the additional ressources page does not list races thus far:

There are boons for: Aasimar, Dhampyr, Ifrit, Oread, Sylph, Tengu, Tiefling, and Undine PCs.

Wayang, Kitsune, Nagaji...
and this was supposed to be sarcastic.

Lets focus on the mainpoint. Keep the racial diversity at the gaming tables to a minimum.
And please don't disappoint gamers who travel far and spend a lot of money to get convention boons by opening up those races to the general public.

The potential to get a racial boon is a primary reason why you "travel far and spend a lot of money" to go to conventions? Wow. To each his own, I suppose.

No but it's a nice momento of the con.

For example I don't just have a Tengu character in PFS, I have a Tengu character I got when I flew halfway around the world to Gen Con for my honeymoon. It's special, I like that.

And will you suddenly lose the boon chronicle and have your character killed if they open it up? No. Nothing will invalidate your character or memories. You'll still be able to brag about it and prove it with your boon sheet even if they open up some of the races.

So, I ran a able the other day. Which do suppose it consisted of?

6 humans?
1 Dwarf, 1 Elf, 1 Gnome, 1 Halfling, 1 Half-Elf and 1 Half-Orc?

Yes, it is entirely possible to have tables of just one race, even, potentially, of one of the boon-only races.

It is also possible to have a table with no two people of the same race, even without any boon races in play.

One of our jokes in my area, before the 5 new factions came out, that almost everyone here was in Andoran. 5 Andorans and a _____ sat down at a table.

Heck, one faction failed miserably at their faction mission in one scenario because, while there were two of them, they were an Elf and a Half-Elf, and the person they were trying to schmooze despised the elven, including half-elves. Although it was intensely funny for everyone else at the table, watching the two of them blow every attempt at Diplomacy they tried with her.

ugh...I'd forgotten what goatse was until you mentioned it in a negative light. :( I was thinking a goat...

Maybe we should delay it for 24 hours to see how many times you can hit the button in that time frame ;-). Kind of like how many licks to get to center of a Tootsie Roll Pop but more intense.

I have my hopes for what will be allowed and what won't be, as well as a tiny, little, glimmer of hope that we'll be able to do one of those one-time existing character changes, but the fact of the matter is this...

I won't get to play at a PFS table until Friday, so all this waiting with bated breath and repeated refreshing I'm doing is rather silly since I have to wait anyway...

Yes those elves, dwarves and gnomes certainly are realistic!

If the choice is making the racial boons useless or making the ARG useless, Im going to take the ARG as I already dropped money on it.

Grand Lodge ** RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

I have a new PC to make (playing through First Steps again soon with a friend new to Pathfinder, as well as my brothers' replacement PCs for those I killed twice in GMG), so I'm very eager to see what's legal.

Id have to search .... but there was something that the races themselves would not be legal ... but Racial traits / feats / and alternate racial abilities (?) based on the Core Races would be legal

I havent seen the book yet so Im not sure whats in it ... and as I only really play society if theres nothing in it for me ... then I most likely wont get it

Can not wait any longer. Almost 10pm CET.
Sleep will bring me release ;) .

Cheliax ***** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

I wonder if this sort of decision is something Mike would have shared with his Venture Officers....hmmmm I wonder...... *evil grin*
