Do I need to add my character as a PFS PC to get a picture? Or am I missing the part where I can assign a pic to my Alias?

Go to My Account then Account Settings. Then scroll down to the Alias you want to add an image to and click the 'Edit' button. Go the where it says Avatar Image, which should be second from the top or so, and click 'Change.'


PF2e Enthusiast

Thanks! I was looking in the wrong place.


There is a $20,000 (Nigerian) surcharge...


You know, I have a good lawyer friend from Nigeria. He's always trying to convince me he grew up with tigers.

I say "Tigers are Asian. Lions are African."

He says "Yeah, but you're the only American that knows that."

Quick update, got all the parts in but haven't managed a successful boot yet. MIGHT have to do some returns. Sorry for the inactivity.

Something's come up IRL, and I won't be able to post consistently for the next few weeks. I'll try to pop in every other day, but no promises. Feel free to bot or skip me as needed.

Thanks for understanding.


I hope you and yours remain healthy!

Come back whenever you feel ready!

Wymond. Part of me thought you’d check the privy and find my character.

Also, Lilika be well!

Lilika...probably hates Wymond now for showing mercy to the bandits, doesn't she? :(

Thanks to my stimulus check, and a quick trip into the infected regions, I'm back in action. Back to normal posting for me. Thanks for your patience!

Haha. No. She hates these freakin' bandits, though! You, she'e irritated with. Strongly irritated. Don't take it personally. Lilika doesn't really like anyone. She's my damaged, quietly defiant, socially distant, grump.

Is Grease flammable in GM Tarondor's version of Golarion?
Asking for a friend.


No...

Ya gotta go back to 2nd edition D&D for that, I think.

Ya never know if you don't ask. Still a useful spell for entryway control.

I'm liking this, even if it wasn't planned for! Thanks for not just TPKing us, GM Tarondor.


You bet!

Death is a bit of a bother, after all.

I don't suppose I can keep the results of that readied roll to hit the leader when walking out the door?


Sorry!

Didn't want to just run out there and get gut-shot again.

What does a Hero Point do, exactly? I think this is my first time encountering one.


HERO POINTS

O.O

Not bad! :D


Huzzah! You've cleared "Splinterden", the Third Level of the Emerald Spire. Only one hundred and fifty four* more levels to go!

I'm going to narrate the rest of the level because there isn't enough left after your unorthodox approach to hold a story together. There's just a bunch of stuff.

Also, congratulations! You are now 4th level!

I'd like to have a talk about transitioning to Second Edition. I won't force anyone, since this was begun as a First Edition game and will end before we enter "demigod" territory, where I feel 1e really breaks down. We last discussed this in August of 2019 and the decision was to wait for more source books. Several have come out since then, but none that would allow Wymond to continue on the path of the Chosen One archetype. Not exactly, anyway. A paladin with the Druid archetype can take an animal companion at 6th level and that might work well. Another idea would be to reskin the "Divine Ally" that paladins get at 3rd level.

I think everyone else's concepts will work just fine in 2e with very little transition.

What say you?

*Not the actual number.

I'm happy either way. I enjoy both first and second edition.


LG | Human Champion (Paladin) | AC 19 | HP 60/60 | Resistance: | Fort +11 | Ref +6 | Will +9 | Hero Points 1 | Perc: +6 | Focus: 1 | Spells: DC 19 | Attack +9 Skills Acro +0, Arcn +0, Athl +9, Crft +0, Dcptn +2, Dplmcy +10, Intim +2, Lore: Farming +6, Med +7, Occult +0, Prfrmnc +2, Society +0, Stlth +0, Surv +7, Thvry +0

FINALLY! We survived!

I completely forgot about that discussion...as far as converting Triath, that's a tricky question: See, he's a familiar technically, and then he changes from a mere pig to a cassisian angel at 7th level...there doesn't seem to be a way to have a familiar that does that in 2e...on the other hand, I haven't telegraphed that that's what will happen, so it could easily be that Triath instead morphs into some kind of big celestial boar...


NG | Gnome Rogue (Bard Dedication) | AC 19 | HP 23/48 | Resistance: Negative 2 | Fort +8 | Ref +11 | Will +8 | Hero Points 1 | Perc: +8 | Low-Light Vision | Forbidding Ward, Dancing Lights | Skills Acro +11, Arcn +8, Athl +7, Crft +8, Dcptn +9, Dplmcy +9, Intim +9, Lore: Engineering +8, Med +6, Occult +8, Prfrmnc +9, Society +2, Stlth +9, Surv +6, Thvry +11

The pig turns into a flying helmet! I need to go read up on that archetype for sure.

As for 2E, I'm 100% onboard. All of my other games are 2e and I really enjoy the new system.

As for Wymond's familiar. Without deep diving the archetype you're using now, I'd guess there's a way to work it into the PaladinChampion class.

Flavor wise, anything is possible. Mechanically speaking, have you checked out Enhanced Familiar to grant more Familiar Abilities?

Substituting out the Divine Ally (steed type) for a familiar sounds reasonable enough. And the reactions available to a Champion could definitely fit the whole "protect this holy chosen one thing". Maybe another Champion feature could be dropped in favor of using a reaction multiple times per turn if protecting your Chosen Animal?
Looking at the archetype and there's a lot to unpack there. Hrm.


LG | Human Champion (Paladin) | AC 19 | HP 60/60 | Resistance: | Fort +11 | Ref +6 | Will +9 | Hero Points 1 | Perc: +6 | Focus: 1 | Spells: DC 19 | Attack +9 Skills Acro +0, Arcn +0, Athl +9, Crft +0, Dcptn +2, Dplmcy +10, Intim +2, Lore: Farming +6, Med +7, Occult +0, Prfrmnc +2, Society +0, Stlth +0, Surv +7, Thvry +0

Yeah, he was gonna be one of those cool helmets with a boar decoration on top, like these guys have!


Familiars can look like literally anything now. Mice, monkeys and helmets can all use the same stats and change them on a daily basis. But Champions don't get familiar. I think we could work with "Divine Ally" to make something suitable.

Also, plans can change!


LG | Human Champion (Paladin) | AC 19 | HP 60/60 | Resistance: | Fort +11 | Ref +6 | Will +9 | Hero Points 1 | Perc: +6 | Focus: 1 | Spells: DC 19 | Attack +9 Skills Acro +0, Arcn +0, Athl +9, Crft +0, Dcptn +2, Dplmcy +10, Intim +2, Lore: Farming +6, Med +7, Occult +0, Prfrmnc +2, Society +0, Stlth +0, Surv +7, Thvry +0

Indeed...so if I did this with Triath, would I still benefit from Divine Steed even if I don't actually ride on his back, which is a little rough in a dungeon?

Either way works for me but I have no experience with 2e. I'm willing to learn, though!

2E Sorcerer

Useful youtube Vidyas for Rules Learning

Biggest and most glaring change is the three action economy for Encounter mode. Everyone, and I mean Everyone get's three actions per turn. You can do whatever you want with those three actions. Want to move thrice? go for it. Want to attack thrice? Go for it (but be ready for the Multiple Attack Penalty aka MAP (your "to hit" goes down for each action with the Attack trait)). The systam leans heavily on the Trait and Condition system.
For Traits, you have most things labeled with one that allows certain rules to affect it. (i.e. the Escape action has the attack trait, as well as the Grapple action, which means if you use the Escape action multiple times in your turn, your bonus to the roll is reduced each time up to a maximum of -10!

Which leads me to my next thing to point out for PF2e. Numbers matter. A LOT. Because if you exceed a check by 10 or more, you Critically Succeed. And if you flub by 10 or more, you Critically Fail. Not everything has Critical outcomes but generally you'll see entries for things that will have the four levels of success (Critical Failure, Failure, Success, Critical Success). This means that every bonus to "to hit" or every penalty to enemy AC or Saves is another step toward a Critical version of whatever you're doing.

Also, Initiative can be rolled for different skills. The default is Perception, but if you're sneaking, you can roll Stealth for Initiative instead.

I'll leave it at that for right meow.... since I don't want to recreate the CRB in my own word. Haha!

I have created a guide to the Pathfinder Second Edition Wizard.

HERE IS THE FIRST DRAFT. I would appreciate your comments and criticisms.

Also, enjoy!


I should have pointed out the discussion page HERE.

I don't think so, if only because if I'm gonna have to learn how to format 2e sheets in Profile at some point, at least if I want to play other 2e PbPs in the future...

I went ahead and grabbed Pathbuilder 2E to help walk me through building a character. This is for sure going to be an adjustment, but hey, always good to learn new things!

Do you have a sample of your preferred layout? I'd like to try to format it myself as well for the same reasons and Wymond, plus it'll probably help me learn where things are in it.
