Announcement

The Playtest is up for the two new classes. Psychic and Thaumaturge. The playtest will run until October 29th. You can find the playtest documents in the link to the blog below. Paizo is going to leave it open enough so that PbP can playtest some of these so if you have time create one and try out a quest / bounty or two!

Please all remember that, as the Org Play playtest rules note, the playtest classes are opt-in for GMs, so if you want to play one in a game please ask your GM for permission first and understand that some may prefer not to run with the playtest classes present.

And GM's, if you open recruitment during the playtest period then it probably wouldn't be a terrible idea to indicate your stance to avoid any confusion or back and forth.

I'm really not up to speed after all this time, on PFS2E.

Is there an Achievement Point cost for a leshy? I didn't see it in "red" under "My account"


Leshies are free now. I think (but am not sure) you still need to buy the boon, but the boon costs 0 AcP.

Relocating this to the Discussion forum. I'm posting using a character just to show FoxxiGranpa what a statblock format looks like.

Essentially you put your statblock in your character's profile. Only way to demonstrate this would be to post as a character.

Post formatting is pretty simple:

For bold - simply surround your text between [*b] and [/b] tags (remove the '*' for it to actually work). Bold generally means you're speaking out loud.

Italicized text is just between [*i] and [/i]. Usually for thought-speak.

The dice roller may take some getting used to:

[dice=Perception]1d20+5[/dice

(you'll need to close the bracket for it to roll. I left it open just to demonstrate the format.

The file below explains it in more detail, including how to format your stats.

Linked here is the template I use for posting character sheet information to Profiles.

Other people use Hero Lab and paste that into their profiles. Other people use things like Mythweavers and link it.

Most ubiquitously important information for your profile header among Paizo PbP GMs is HP, AC, and Perception.


I also reference a character's gender and pronouns often enough to request my players put it in their header.


DM Deevor, can you check your PMs or provide a way for me to contact you?

Announcement

Alright folks, we have another 2x AcP Event Weekend coming up for the soon to be released One-Shots for Starfinder and Pathfinder 2E. Below you will find a sign-up sheet for GM Registration along with the weekend that your PbP / PbD Table must start on to earn double AcP. If you table starts before or after that allotted weekend then you will not receive the double AcP.

  • SFS One-Shot - The Great Grav-Train Robbery
  • PFS 2E Head-Shot the Rot

    Similar to Sundered Waves the VO team will create a separate event for this as well as use our reporting tool so that all PbP Games are consolidated on one event and easier for Alex to turn on once they are all reported in. I will email the event # and reporting form out via email to the GM's as it gets closer.

    At the moment all I can give you information on are the titles of the One-Shots and the dates for double AcP. Please keep an eye out for future blogs with better descriptions and product pages.

    I will be sending in the Scenario Support request for these items on October 10th. We do not yet know exact release dates nor when you will actually receive them so please be patient with that process. We just wanted to get word out so that you can plan ahead if you wish to run / play in these One-Shots.

    Unable to give any of that information at this time. All I am allowed to give out for planning purposes are the name and dates.


    I notice it asks for a Discord name. Are these games to be played on Discord, necessarily?

    Venture-Captain PBP GM Tyranius PFS Reporting Tool | Scenario List | | PFS2E Scenario Tracker Scenario Sign-up Sheet

    Nope they can be played here as well, that is just there so I can locate the Discord folks to PM them if I need to.

    Can we submit the thing twice to sign up to DM them both, or no?

    A GM can register for both, so long as the bandwidth to run both is there.

    There are still 3 seats available.
    This game will be played on Discord - Cayden's Keg
    Start date: 10 October 2021
    This will be part of Gameday X.

    A Pathfinder Society Quest designed for levels 1–4 (subtiers 1–2 and 3–4).

    Venture-Captain Calisro Benarry has arranged for the PC's transport to the pirate haven of Port Peril to make contact with Free Captain Stella Fane and negotiate a contract with her, facilitating Society movements through the pirate blockades in the area. The job seems simple: track down the the pirate captain, secure the agreement, and then return to Absalom. But few things are simple when a den of villainous pirates is involved, and it's unlikely the PCs will be able to leave Port Peril without throwing a few punches in a proper pub brawl!

    @Tyranius & co

    I wanted to ask about the one-shoots and weekends of increased ACP. Are there some technical 'requirements' to make it work? Meaning can the GM create a gameplay thread before? And just start posting content 'on the weekend'? Or is it that: the gameplay thread may only be created starting at the date xx?


    Tangentially Related Question:

    I'm using RPG Chronicles for the first time and want to upgrade my account. When I give it my credit card information it says I need a verified email account, but gives no clue as to how to do this. Anyone know?

    Radiant Oath

    Did you verify your email when you created your account? Normally when you create your account you get a link to click on to verify your email.


    I guess not. I created it months ago. There doesn't seem to be a way to alter your account directly. I sent them an email.

    You can create the gameplay thread, recruit, and role play before the start date. Just no text from the actual scenario until that weekend.

    Has anyone purchased the Second Chance boon before? Its short description says, "Gain the benefits of a resurrect ritual." I'm assuming the actual boon mentions how you gain the benefits, such as the degree of success you have for the ritual.

    I'm concerned I may need it because GM Tiger is killing me and don't want to spend 40 points if I still have to roll a ritual check to see if I critically fail and botch the resurrection.

    (FAQ) What is the full text of the Second Chance boon?

    Second Chance Boon wrote:

    [ ] Second Chance (Limited-Use, Service): Adventuring is deadly business, but you have a powerful favor you can call in if your travels result in a premature death. You can check the box that precedes this boon to gain the benefits of the resurrect ritual (Pathfinder Core Rulebook page 415), so long as the ritual’s total cost in diamonds does not exceed 1,000 gp. If the ritual would cost more than 1,000 gp, you must pay any additional costs beyond 1,000 gp.

    The ritual takes 1 day to perform and automatically succeeds.

    A lot of boon descriptions are in that FAQ.


    The location of that FAQ should be a FAQ.

    It's not one of the top hits if you punch "FAQ" into the search, and "Pathfinder FAQ" (the highest hit) does not cross-reference it. The landing page for "Organized Play FAQ" (the highest ranked relevant search hit) requires the user to make an additional click on a menu not very obvious on mobile.

    Yeah, it's pretty baseline [low quality] UI that we all have resigned to accept, but it's something that we could help by linking in the sticky threads.

    Is it too later to join in on the scenario request? I just had several things change making me more available that weekend to start a PbP and would like to do this.

    Unfortunately I have already sent in the scenario support request, so you would have to purchase out of pocket, but you can still run the One-Shot on the 2x AcP Weekend. Just fill out the GM Registration on the link and I will add you to the tracker.

    How does one trip with a whip in Pf2e?

    Dark Archive

    Venture-Captain PBP GM Tyranius PFS Reporting Tool | Scenario List | | PFS2E Scenario Tracker Scenario Sign-up Sheet

    You would use the trip action and since the weapon has the trip trait tag you don't need a free hand.

    Here are the two pages that should explain a bit better.

    Trip Action

    Trip Trait

    Just keep in mind that the trip action also has the attack trait so it will count against the multiple attack penalty.

    How does one trip with a whip in Pf2e?

    1. Trip is an action. https://2e.aonprd.com/Actions.aspx?ID=40

    Trip Action, bolding mine wrote:

    Trip ◆

    Traits: Attack
    Source: Core Rulebook pg. 243 2.0
    Requirements: You have at least one hand free. Your target can’t be more than one size larger than you.
    You try to knock a creature to the ground. Attempt an Athletics check against the target’s Reflex DC.
    Critical Success The target falls and lands prone and takes 1d6 bludgeoning damage.
    Success The target falls and lands prone.
    Critical Failure You lose your balance and fall and land prone.

    2. Weapons with the Trip trait don't need a hand free. https://2e.aonprd.com/Traits.aspx?ID=196

    Trip Trait, bolding mine wrote:

    Source Core Rulebook pg. 283 2.0

    You can use this weapon to Trip with the Athletics skill even if you don't have a free hand. This uses the weapon's reach (if different from your own) and adds the weapon's item bonus to attack rolls as an item bonus to the Athletics check. If you critically fail a check to Trip using the weapon, you can drop the weapon to take the effects of a failure instead of a critical failure.

    So for a whip (or any other weapon with the Trip trait), you just try to Trip, whenever you'd otherwise be able to make an attack.

    Grand Lodge

    So I am assuming that I'd have to pump athletics to get a better trip result?
