Character profile has wrong faction


Pathfinder Society® General Discussion

Qadira * Venture-Lieutenant, Illinois—Rockford

I recently GM'd a scenario I previously played, and the organizer applied the credit to a character number I had not yet created. He also posted the credit as if my faction was (would be) Grand Lodge.

I have since created the character and want the faction to be Cheliax, but everything is showing up as Grand Lodge and I can't find a way to edit this. Is there a way I can do this, or do I need to contact someone to have that fixed?

Under pathfinder society/My pathfinder society /player tab your characters should be listed there. You can edit them. Set your faction to what you wish it to be.

As best as i can tell the reporting won't prevent that and future reporting should get the info right.

If this works, but you are fussy about it being reported perfectly too, you can pester the person who reported this and ask them to change it.

Thanks. That way worked. Strange that when I went in using my profile, the edit options excluded faction selection. As you implied, the session reporting still shows credit going to Grand Lodge. I have requested that this be changed also. Maybe that means I'm fussy, but it seems like the system should be set up to not presume any faction until you've selected one for the character.

If it's a level 1 character, it doesn't really matter as you can change faction during a rebuild without losing Prestige/Fame.

There is an option to change faction by spending prestige, so it makes sense to show how the session was reported rather than only showing the current faction.

Each session tracks what faction gave you prestige for that mission. If you change factions later the old sessions will still show the old factions.
