Still solidly in my 20s, but closing in on 30.

Thanks everyone!

Don't think I have yet so I will now. Happy Anniversary of Your Birth.

Also, I AM A PROPHET!

Lol! From over two years ago!

For those who haven't heard, the Gen Con special this year will be played on two different nights except one night everyone will play as the Aspis and be provided with one of six Aspis pregens.

I actually don't know how I feel about it. I kind of came to agree with the other posters that PFS shouldn't put people in charge of evil characters. It's a strange turn is all I will say but it might end up being fun so I'll withhold judgement for now.


I think this is an interesting idea.

The Aspis Consortium may be evil, but they have a hierarchy and code of conduct that mirrors the Pathfinder Society. If you ask me, they are only a step removed from The Exchange.

As an example, goblins are evil, and We Be Goblins I and II are great adventures despite playing characters that are free from morals, vows, and basic humanoid decency.


Male Mostly Harmless Incorrigible Punster 5/ Militant Grammarist 3/ Contrarian 2

Yeah, like Rah says, I wouldn't want a steady diet, but it might work just fine as a one-off.

All I can say is that the Aspis Gold Agent art in the ISWG is one of my favorite character portraits.

Both good points.

So yeah, I guess it works just fine as a once-in-a-while special. Unlike what my original two-year-old post says, I wouldn't want it as a whole campaign or organized play system.

I'm sure the answer is somewhere obvious in one of the Core discussions, but I'm short of time. Does anyone know how campaign mode APs will work--i.e., can you use the chronicle you get for either a core or standard character?

On a Podcast interview with John Compton, I believe he said that was fine.

Not really. When a game is being reported the characters have to be all Core or all Organized Play. Or if you report a Core character for an Organized Play game it will convert that Core character to OP.

So basically the whole table needs to decide together whether they want Core credit or OP play. It also means you could run the AP twice in campaign mode, once for OP credit and once for Core credit (and play it twice, once for each type of credit).

Edit: unless they've changed the reporting system to allow mixed tables, that is.

Ah, yeah, you would have to decide what kind of credit it gave beforehand. But otherwise you can play it in campaign mode for either credit.


That seems really inelegant, as you can play an AP in 'home game' mode and not all of the players need even be PFS players...

It just has to do with the reporting system not allowing you to have mixed tables. If it did allow you to have mixed tables, people would play scenarios that way and that would be a problem since they're supposed to be two separate campaigns.

They have not, and in all likelihood will not.

It's a combination of "two separate campaigns so mixing tables not a good idea" and "requisite fundamental changes to the existing structure would consume resources better used elsewhere".


Male Mostly Harmless Incorrigible Punster 5/ Militant Grammarist 3/ Contrarian 2

Also, for those who haven't seen THIS...


Yep, I agree that it's more a reporting system thing than anything else, and indeed for the small ROI (ie the number of tables that are playing home game mode that have a mix of core and non-core players) its probably not worthwhile.

Nothing from me at the moment. Sorry :(

I have made my very first PFS character, and I was hoping someone with a better grasp of the rules and regulations for such could review my sheet and let me know if I did it right, and if not, what I should change?

His sheet is under the alias I posted this with.

I did not see anything that raised a red flag. If monk is your favored class for the character you can still add the +1 hp or +1 skill point.

Thanks! I had thought I had it all correct, I just wanted to be sure before I applied for a game and had something wrong. His favored class is ninja, since he's only taking four levels of MoMS to set up his style feats. Ninja tricks will help fill it out the rest if the way, and monastic legacy will be great. If it works right, he should be a pretty decent skilled character with good combat ability.

Just so you know, in PFS before you hit level 2 you can rebuild anything you want with no penalty. So you can make your favored class Monk for the extra HP or skill point for your first 3 scenarios, then change it to ninja right before you hit level 2.

I mean, you actually could make him a barbarian for all of level 1 and then switch, if you want to. :-)

Huh. I had no idea. That's pretty cool. I'll go ahead use the favored class bonus and grab an extra skill. Possibly even trade a trade to get disable device as a skill for level one as well. Never know when it'll come in handy.

Thanks for the info. :)


Paging GingaNinja and VinGoodman. There are some surly goblins outside, looking for you.

If I have my choice, rogue. If not, I'll take what's left. It looks like a bunch of people signed up while I was away, haha.

I have never played this, is there a players guide or something I need to download for the pregen character?
