It bugs my fastidious nature to make extra campaigns... :)

Well, you could always make the new campaign, and then tell Customer Service about the old thread and ask them if they can delete it at their leisure... That is if they can delete threads like that.

The Exchange

My Game Tracker If using PFS Tracker, search Upaynao 43451 // My signup sheet

I probably should know this by now, but how do I ask customer service to transfer control of a thread to myself?


Here is the quote from the top of the Online Campaigns page. "If you are the GM for a play-by-post campaign but didn't start the thread, please email customer.service@paizo.com."

Hope that helps. Takes a few days and perhaps a gentle reminder sometimes

Here's a new annoying bug that I have noticed: my posts in campaigns sometimes don't show up until I refresh the screen. Is anyone else noticing this?

This happened to me today. I always Ctrl-C before I hit "Submit Post" in case of problems, so I reposted with a Ctrl-V when I didn't see the post I'd just posted. Then noticed I had a duplicate post with all new die rolls. (Simple enough to delete, but it threw me for a loop.)

Yes. Frequently. It is driving me crazy (not a long trip, I admit).

Same here. I almost screamed in despair when I thought my post had been eaten - serves me right for forgetting to copy it! - but when I refreshed the page, it was posted. :)

I'll add a voice to the chorus of ayes.

Better than the posts actually being eaten though :p

I sense downtime in our future, it seems the site is becoming a little less stable each day. I've noticed page loading times are also increasing too. Those in the special might want to think about your back-up plans in case we have a couple days down.

I feel like a doomsayer wandering the town with a sandwich board -- The End is Near! - hopefully I'm wrong about that.

*Enjoying a cup of chocolate ice cream. Mmmm. Haven't had despair. Does that have almonds or caramel in it? I'm allergic to one, and can't pronounce the other, and therefore refuse to admit it exists.

I have to assume you're allergic to caramel since every conceivable pronunciation of it is considered legitimate by someone.

And now I'm trying to figure out how many pronunciation permutations there would be for caramel pecan ice cream.

Also...trying to figure out how I can get some caramel pecan ice cream.


That sounds amazing and I'm gonna go make some right now.

I'm back. yay! Spendig a couple of days catching up.

Is anyone else having a problem editing campaigns at the moment?


Secret Roll List | Placeholder | Spell Templates | Gallows #3 |

Yup, that is a recent issue that has cropped up.


male human

Question that has come up. Due to the difficulty of casting range touch spell into/thru melee combat, I took to taking Point-Blank and Precise Shot feats with my casters.

Recently I was informed that the Point-Blank Shot feat does not apply to ranged touch attack spells.

Clarifications?

Sovereign Court

@Philipkcormier: My understanding is that that statement is *partially* correct.

Point Blank Shot *does* apply, as long as the spell does hit point damage.

The closest FAQs that I could find are HERE, and HERE.


My understanding is pretty much the same as Lukes above.

Lantern Lodge

Sign up sheet Dragon.

I agree too. In fact my sorcerer does just this, point blank shot and precise shot.


Pointblank and precise apply to ray attacks. Such as ray of enfeeblement or ray of frost (aka ranged touch attacks). So on so forth. Which spell is it that you're questioning in particular?

Dark Archive

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

Easiest way to remember it is that Precise shot and Point Blank shot apply as long as an attack roll is made with the spell.

For example as above. Scorching Rays, ray of frost, acid splash.

Not so much Fireball and magic missile.


male human

The spell-like abilities that Sorcerer's get from their Bloodlines.
(ie.: elemental ray, arcane bolt, etc.)


Then absolutely yes it does apply.
You can even weapon focus a ray if you want.
A Bards performance also affects it because it is an attack weapon.

Silver Crusade

When you get a chronicle sheet from playing a pregen and want to apply it to a lower level PC, you hold the sheet until that PC gets to the level range listed on the sheet. (Unless level 1 where other circumstance may apply, but that's not what my question is about.)

Do you number the sheet immediately, and just hold off on applying the benefits from the sheet until in level? Or do you leave the number blank until you are in level?

Silver Crusade

Venture Lieutenant, Play by Post (online), Hostess of Cottonseed Lodge (playtest)

You fill in the number when you actually apply the chronicle sheet.

It's my understanding that it applies when you hit the level of the pregen, not the beginning of the level range for the scenario. For instance, if you play a 4th level pregen in a 3-7 scenario, and apply credit to a 1st level character, it would apply when you hit 4th, not when you hit 3rd.

Found the quote:

Role Playing Guild Guide 10.0, Page 7 wrote:
Applying Credit: You may apply credit for an adventure once your Roleplaying Guild character reaches the level of the pregenerated character used to play through it. For example, if you played a 7th-level pregenerated character, you would apply the credit once your character reaches 7th level.

Thank you for catching that, Dennis. Yes, if a player chose to play a pregen, they don't apply the sheet until the character reaches the level of the pregen. If the adventure was one that requires pregens (such as We Be Goblins Free), the sheet gets applied as soon as the character reaches the range on the sheet.

Question for the powers that be: I'd like to throw my hat in the ring as a GM here. What do I need to do? How do I create campaigns? Where do I report? I guess I just have a bunch of questions and haven't been able to find answers, yet. Any links for me?

Venture Lieutenant Play by Post PBP GM kit

Hi Azra, it is great that you are willing to take up the GM hat!

Some generic points
- Before starting to GM PbP it is a good idea to play a couple of games in PbP. That way you get to experience what other GMs do and learn from them.
- Take some time to familiarize yourself with the tools that are out there in the PbP GM Kit At least read the Welcome New PBP GMs document.
- Start small, with one scenario.
- Choose a scenario in a tier that you feel comfortable with (for most that is tier 1-5 when they start GMing)
- Accept that everyone has their own bandwidth (the number of games you can run / play in at the same time) and it will take some time to get to know yours. Also know that your bandwidth is not a constant: most people's bandwidth tends to go down if they are occupied with real-life stuff.

As for your specific questions:
- How do I create campaigns?
Go to the Play by Post section on the forums and add a new thread. After creating the thread it will ask you if you want to create a campaign
- Where do I report?
@Redelia: didn't we make a guide for that? Or is that in draft?
Basically you go to "my account" -> "Account settings" (sign in) -> "Make Changes" in "Organized Play" -> Tab "GM / Event Coordinator" -> "Create your event". Things should be rather straightforward from there. Note that reporting during PbP conventions follows a different route.

Hope this helps, good luck and have fun!


You may want to start GMing with a single scenario you've played before, so you don't have to worry too much about new content. If you've GMed in real life, it's even better to pick that one.

For example, a lot of people have played and GMed The Confirmation. You could try to recruit GMs to play in your game and feel free to ask for feedback in the discussion thread.

I suggest you start with one scenario. Don't start off with multipart scenarios or modules, and definitely don't begin with an Adventure Path. I didn't understand the preparation behind GMing until I tried, and I'm glad I started easy.

There is a sorta guide for New GMs.

My character sheet / alias has been lost in an editing fault.

I was editing a different alias, hit "save changes", and the changes got applied to this alias instead, overwriting the pre-existing character sheet.

Anyone else ever had this?

I've made a thread in Website Feedback to see if they can restore the original details. I am currently using this PC in Assault of Absablom. I have a paper copy of the sheet, but it won't have all the changes from the current scenario :/

Posting this as I am sure not everyone is aware on how to manually hide a thread from their Campaigns Tab. Quite a few of them are currently locked out with the forum bug that has been happening. Here are some quick instructions to at least get it off of your Campaigns Tab.

  • Go to Paizo's Play-By Post Online Campaigns (Link)
  • At the top next to add new thread click on the focus link. (This will isolate it down to threads you have posted in.)
  • Now you should be able to Control F search for the name of your Campaign you are wanting to stop showing up on your Campaign Tabs.
  • Once you have located the thread click on the Ø at the far right of the name of the thread. This will manually hide the thread from your view.

    Are Paizo staff working to fix the problem with the "Edit This Campaign" function?

    And are they working on the problem with posts getting lost/not appearing after clicking on the "Submit Post" link?

    I'm still experiencing issues with both functions.

    Silver Crusade

    Venture Lieutenant, Play by Post (online), Hostess of Cottonseed Lodge (playtest)

    They have said that they have a fix for the edit campaign problem, but it's going to be applied together with a bunch of other fixes. They said several weeks ago the fixes would be applied in a few weeks.


    The submit post thing seems to just be a delay. I haven't lost any posts, but I just have to wait between 10-20 seconds and refresh and it shows. Granted, tis still a bug but tis one I've just gotten used to.
