It looks like I might have made a mistake on my first character. I chose a ratfolk as my race because I say that both Bestiary 3 and Advanced Race Guide were listed under additional resources, but I missed that you need something called "Chronicle Sheet" and I am having some difficulty figuring out what that is. Have I made a character that is not legal for play by mistake?

This is your first PFS character and you have invested time so I really want you to enjoy that. :-)

I still have a ratfolk boon that I can give you as a gift. Send me your email address and PFS number and I’ll send you the boon you need.

Have fun!

You rock, Nowruz!


Really no big deal.

I am glad that we have new PFS1 PbP players!! :-)

Necromagnetism and I just had our exchange via PM and I remembered that you also get a boon for your first PFS1 character with several options.

Does anyone know the link to this boon and can post it here for Necromagnetism?

Thanks and all the best,

noral / GM Nowruz


The boon is aptly called Welcome to Pathfinder. One can be found here. I believe the stipulation is that it can only be issued to your PFS# -01 character.

I think it might be the first character you PLAY because my local lodge had me assign it to my -2 character the first time I played, but maybe that was a mistake?

The language on the boon is as follows:

Welcome to Pathfinder wrote:

Initiate's Edge: Golarion can be a dangerous place, and the Pathfinder Society takes care to equip its newest recruits. You can apply one of the following benefits to your first character (XXXXXX–1); cross out the other two options. The first time you serve as a game master for a Pathfinder Society game and apply the credit to this character, you may double your maximum number of uses for the selected benefit.

I doubt that anybody would care, as long as you're only using one copy of the boon. Especially if your -1 is a PC that you don't play.

I'll second that.

I'm still grateful to those who provided me with an extra Starfinder racial boon when I needed one after my aasimar met with an 'unfortunate accident' owing to sheer bad luck.

Thank you again.

Go to the Campaign Info tab on your campaign, click "Edit This Campaign" in the top right corner, and at the bottom of the page you'll see a list of players and characters. Remove the tick against "active". That's it.

Moving this out of Recruitment. Should've moved it the first time I responded; sorry about that. This is the discussion about scribing spells for an extra 50% above the scribe cost instead of buying a scroll first.

GM TOP wrote:
FAQ on the topic should resolve any questions one might still have.

Unfortunately, that FAQ answer leaves me with questions! As it's written there, it says you can pay that 50% fee "in the rare instance of a wizard charging a fee for the privilege of copying spells from their spellbooks." emphasis added

"Rare instance" makes me think it's not a general rule that you can copy from some Grand Lodge library. But--in PFS--when does that "rare instance" occur?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I’m not sure what FAQ you looked at, but this one is specific to Organized Play and says the cost to copy from an NPC is an additional 50%. Just above that is one talking about using a scroll to learn a spell.

There are NPCs that are willing to allow you to learn spells from them. They all charge the same. Nothing says they all exist in the grand lodge either, any big city is likely to have several NPC spellcasters.

For those of us who don't use Warhorn a whole heap...

How do we find PBPost games, rather than VTT ones?


All of the games scheduled on Thursday are PbP. There a a few PFS2 games on the Friday early morning schedule also. All of the PbP games begin on Friday the 28th regardless of when the signup is.

Yup, the easiest way to find the PbP games:

  • Open that link above
  • Upper right corner click on schedule and choose Agenda

    PbP Games will be right at the top of the page and you will be able to easily see how many free spaces are still available for each table.

    Hi guys, pardon my ignorance, but how does PaizoCon work? I mean, do I have to register on Warhorn to play games during it? Is there an entry fee?
    Thank you in advance for your answers and time.

    Yes, you register through Warhorn and pay $25 (through PayPal ONLY!) to gain access to sign up for... I'm not sure how many slots are the limit. But there is no additional fee per game.

    @GM Tyranius: At your leisure, could I get your input on something from a Seeker Module I'm running? I can't find a definitive ruling (I may just not know where to look) and would appreciate any insight you might have:

    Tyranius:
    I'm GM'ing Tomb of the Iron Medusa and the PCs found a luck blade with one wish; I figured it was one of those instances where the item would be listed on the Chronicle for each to purchase after the module was completed...but, to my surprise, it's not on there. So, my question is: Can one of the PCs use that as a permanent wish (i.e., increase one of their ability stats by +1)? My Google Fu on this has been week...reading the PFS guide, I'm guessing it's restricted to just the module unless it involves some kind of healing/repairing damage/removing harmful conditions but I'd like to make sure...

    Otha:
    That is the way I would do it. Leave it restricted to the module itself unless used to cure some sort of affliction, ailment or harmful condition.

    Looking back at the emails quick you received one of those during this current Outpost IV Con and the second copy from Gameday IX last fall. That is the reason you have two copies.

    As of right now that is the GM boon sent out way for Tier 1 Cons (75+ Tables).

    I have a question for Organized Play leadership about running an AP in Campaign Mode for PFS credit:

    Do all players need to receive credit? If only one player wants credit for the game, can the sessions be submitted with only one player's information, or do the other players need to get PFS numbers and be on the submission form too (even if they don't want the credit and never intend to play PFS again)?

    Grand Lodge

    What I would do is go to your GM event coordinator tab on your organised play account settings down load 10 character cards assign the first few to your non credit wanting friends and use those numbers for the reporting. Letting them know if they change their minds you will issue a chronicle

    You do not need to include all players when reporting, only the players who want credit. The GM doesn need to get credit to report, however; the system does not allow reporting a game with no GM.

    It's possible some of the reluctance to accept PFS credit is that they already have numbers from the distant past and don't want to bother finding them.

    I don't know what the policy is on assigning a new number to someone who already has one.

    Indeed I have assigned chronicles with just 1-2 people from an AP wanting them. Some people just want to play an AP and don't participate in Organized Play.

    Sovereign Court

    When reporting, do you need a minimum of 3 players though? i.e. report at least 3, or is that only the minimum table size for play? e.g. can one run an AP with 5 players, and report only 1 or 2 of them?

    That is the case for a standard PFS scenario. I believe there are different rules for playing an AP in 'Campaign Mode'.

    Actually, this was changed in a blog. For a regular scenario, you only need 2 players. I don't have a link to the blog post in front of me, but hopefully someone else can post it.

    It's in the Guide to OP under Legal Table Size:

    Adventures with a Minimum level of 5 or lower.
    For these adventures, the GM can run a table of two or three players, and can add additional appropriately leveled pregenerated iconic characters in order to meet the minimum table size of four PCs.

    Thanks for the feedback. Has anyone tried to log a table of 2 players before? any problem on that end?

    I've logged tables of 2 for PFS2 and there has not been a problem.

    Hey y'all, I need some help figuring out how to report my PFS run of Gallows of madness Part 2 what lurks in the woods. My players have come to the almost end of the run and I still have not figured out how to report the game. I think I can get the chronicles together, but I have never reported a PFS game either face to face or PBP. I have always had others report them on their event codes when I GM'd. Now I need to figure this last bit out and fast.

    Is there some guide in the GM tools that explains how to get the event number and how to report the game? I think I tried setting up an event a few years ago and got stuck in the format. Can anyone help me set all this stuff up?

    Thanks, I have faith someone can point me in the right direction.

    If you recruited your players online you can just go to this site and click report - the nice OSP people will log that game for you.

    If you want to do it directly on the Paizo website, you'll have to create a PFS event first by going here and clicking the 'create an event' button. If you have problems reporting after you reach this website, contact the Paizo Customer Service: these guys are great.


    If you create your own event, note you only need to do it once, and you'd reuse the number for every different session you report.

    The other upside is that you can use the autofill data as a double check on the PFS information given to you. I've caught a good number of errors that way.
