Not only that, but slightly different rules depending on the special. Here's the repeatability breakdown per special:

Multi-table specials
2-00 (tiers 1-2, 3-6, & 7-8, once each tier)
3-99 (tiers 1-4, & 5-8, once each tier)
3-98 (tiers 1-4, & 3-6, can be played twice & each playthrough can be in any tier)
4-99 (subtiers 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, fully repeatable)

The above is just for playing, if you GM you can get a separate chronicle still. So for example 2-00 you can get up to 6 chronicles if you played and GM'ed every tier.

Thanks for the info redeux.

A follow up question: are you able to play the same special with the same character but on a different tier? Or must you be playing with a different character than the first play through?

You cannot. They are still treated as the same adventure for that purpose so it needs to be a different character each time you play/GM.

can you still use a replay boon to replay 03-99 if you've already used up both tiers?

So, I had planned to sign up to GM a nonrepeatable 1-4 or 3-6, but several of the ones I'm interested in already have signups.

Unofficial interest check for:

2-17 (Lost Maid of Anactoria): I think this may be long for a convention, but I really liked it. Did someone recruit for a 2-17 run recently? I feel like I recently saw it.

2-21 (In Pursuit of Water): This was okay fun when I played it. I didn't read the description and brought a water-themed character. Would not recommend that, but would recommend the scenario overall. I don't think I've seen it offered recently.

I haven't played either of those, so mark me as interested.

I'll let you know if I run 2-21. I chose 2-17 for the convention, and signups have already filled up.

ATTENTION: ALL PAIZO BOARD GMS

First, as the Venture Agent for this lodge, I want to thank you for stepping up (many of you repeatedly) and running games. Your efforts are recognized and greatly appreciated!

Further, I would like to remind all GMs to log their games in the Data Tracking Form. This helps us keep track of things, including your efforts, and to let the powers that be know that we're still around and there's still interest in this Lodge.

It also keeps me from having to try to do it by hand.

The link is at the top of the page. It takes less than a minute to complete the tracking form (probably less than half a minute.)

If you have any questions about how do to so, please feel free to drop a message here or PM me.

Happy Gaming!

This may be a stupid question, but is there a way to see the results? I think I reported a recent game, but there's no feedback to acknowledge it and I don't want to double-report or not report.

Not including Outpost games, correct?

Correct.

For particular events, like the ongoing Outpost convention, the event organizer needs to be informed when a game has been completed, but the organizer is responsible for, and often handles, the reporting.

If you have completed a game that you ran here on the boards under your own event, then you, as the GM, are responsible for reporting the game. Once reported, the game should show up under the "Sessions" tab for the event. The events are listed under the "GM/Event Coordinator" tab und under your "My Organized Play" link within the "My Account" menu here on the boards.

You can check to see if a game for Outpost or another event, including one of your own, has been reported by checking the "Sessions" tab found under your "My Organized Play" link within the "My Account" menu here on the boards. If a game you ran or played does not appear there, then you should contact the organizer for that event to get it properly reported.

If the event is managed by RPGChronicles (like Outpost is), you can also go to the last page and check the Reporting status.

The Data Tracking Form is not used for convention games and it is no used for reporting.

I highly encourage GMs to fill out the Data Tracking Form at the same time they report their games to Paizo as this keeps the tracker up-to-date and makes it easier for the GMs to know if it has been filled out.

A GM that is unsure whether or not a particular game has been added to the Data Tracking Form should reach out to a Venture Officer for the boards (feel free to PM me) and request confirmation.


Well, dang. I reported the scenario I am running for Outpost.

I've been asked to GM a non-repeatable game for the second time. If I wish to assign this to a character, do I need to spend a replay point?

And is there a way to report that? I see replay toggles for players in the reporting but not for GMs.

Or do I just assign the game to a null character (-2000) and just get the ACP and table credits?

Radiant Oath

You can’t assign another GM chronicle if the game is not repeatable.


Venture Lieutenant, Play by Post (online)

If you run a non-repeatable again, when you report, you put in your org play number, but do not put in a character number. You will get credit for the game in terms of ACP and game counts, but no chronicle sheet or credit for a specific character.

OK - I wasn't sure that reporting can be done with a blank character number. I'll let the person who does the reporting know that.

Thank you.


Is there a reason that replays for GMing are not allowed, other than that the website doesn't allow it?

Silver Crusade

Venture Lieutenant, Play by Post (online)

Those making those decisions did not realize we might want to use replays on GM credit, or that we had been using replays of other, older know nds for GM credit. We've made sure that the powers making such decisions are aware of the interest.


In the old PFS guide, I remember seeing a ruling that characters with an animal companion, familiar, or even an Eidolon were still only allowed to take one action for a skill challenge.

I am not seeing that in the new Lorespire PFS guide. Does anyone know where that is or if it was removed deliberately?

It's under the Character Options page, Secrets of Magic sanctioning info:

Secrets of Magic Sanctioning info wrote:

Eidolons: Eidolons are not PCs, so they do not count as PCs for effects that scale based on the number of PCs or players.

Eidolons and summoners share a pool of actions. As a result, for Victory Point/success counting systems that allow each PC a limited number of chances to roll, either the summoner or the eidolon can attempt each check. The summoner's player chooses for each attempt which of the two rolls. Any direct consequences of failure apply to whichever creature rolled the check.

This rule does not mean that in general only one of the summoner or eidolon need to roll to deal with adverse situations. If everyone in a room needs to attempt a saving throw against a hazard, both the eidolon and the summoner need to attempt that saving throw. If every PC needs to overcome a particular obstacle in order to continue (such as crossing a chasm), the eidolon and summoner both need to get past the obstacle.


Hello there, I'm new to society and to the remaster rules but I'm positive about giving it a try.

I've played pathfinder 1 and 2e a little in the past and am a huge fan of golarion


Do you have a character built out yet?

Welcome. You are certainly in the right place.

If you don't have a character created yet, all PFS characters need to be registered. Which is done on the Paizo forums here. From the 'My Account' on the banner at the top of the page -> 'Organized Play' -> 'Create a character'.

There are also the rules for creating characters on the Lorespire pages.


Thanks, I was reading lorespire earlier

Will create a character soon enough

I have updated my Paizo PbP Profile Template (link) for anyone who wants it. There are a few tweaks and clarifications, but mostly it is removing bits not used in the Remaster.
