Storming the Diamond Gate Games I've Played (Session Tracker)

If a player is controlling 2 entities on the field, say a character and his eidolon or animal companion or mount, but not specifically his eidolon, does he have to do all the actions for 1 entity first then all the actions for the other.

For example, could he move himself, then his eidolon...or animal companion or mount, but not specifically his eidolon into flanking positions then make both attacks with all the advantages of flanking or does he have to move one and attack then move the other and attack. Does it depend on whether or not the DM is making him roll separate initiatives?

Asking for a friend...

Dark Archive

Mounted combat is its own special case.

2 companions on the field of battle - they should act one after the other... (whether same init or separate is up to gm - i roll separate) just like bad guys have to go one at a time... Readied actions are very important for being effective in that situation.


Two creatures have two separate turns. They just happen to be controlled by the same player. Usually only one of them will enjoy the benefits of flanking.

I know nothing about mounted combat, though.

Officially and technically, they always roll separate initiative, and the GM is in control of the eidolon/animal companion. In reality, very few GMs want to control a player's companion NPC, and let them do it. They should take their own turns just like you would for any other character.

But! There is nothing wrong with having one delay until they are at the same initiative, then doing a sequence like
1. Eidolon moves, then readies his standard for the PC to act
2. PC acts
3. Eidolon takes his readied action

Teamwork based PCs do this all the time.

In Mounted Combat, the character and mount are treated as a single unit using the rider's initiative and the mount's movement speed. Generally, if the mount moves, it and the rider can take a single attack; if the mount charges, it and the rider both attack with charge benefits (assuming they can both reach their target); if the mount doesn't move, they can both take their full actions. (This assumes the rider makes the appropriate Ride check to control the mount in combat and/or guide with knees to have both hands free, as needed.)

Does that make sense?


You could move your character with a move action, have him ready an action to attack when a flank is established, move the companion or summoned creature or whatever into a flank, which triggers the ready action and causes an attak, and then attack with the companion/summoned creature. This is legal because the series of actions is legal were you operating separately.

I've seen this done with enemies by a GM, and I don't see why it could not be done by you.

You can tell your friend winks that The Great Rinaldo! and Miteke gave good examples. Yes, it is allowed as long as the actions could be done by readying and delaying.

^ Spreading the word. While not as sweet as previous deals, this still might be worth picking up.

Some quick things I noticed in here:

  • All the scenarios of Season 4
  • Some awesome modules
  • Rules source material for the Fauchard
  • Rules source material for Skinwalkers

  • Three new mods and the Season 4 scenarios. Still for me a bargain. Soon I will have all the scenarios!

    You also get pdfs 25 maps, most useable in a range of scenarios. That seems pretty sweet.

    Yeah, I often go through my PDF maps from humble bundles looking for maps that I can use in ‘mapless’ encounters. I’m going to be using one of them in an encounter that is coming up, actually.

    Yes, these are direct downloads (or torrents) from the humble bundle site. If you click the "get your bundle" button in the mail you received and scroll down on the page you should see them.

    You have to download those from the Humble Bundle site.

    Once you are logged in, go to Purchases and then click on the Worldscape Crossover Bundle. There you will see the download links for everything else.

    Hopefully i will find my last purchase of the previous one that way still.

    +1 to the thanks.


    Are all of those humble bundle things pdf's or hard copies. I can't really tell form the limited descriptions.

    Not really, I cherry pick my book purchases by designing a character and seeing what books need purchasing, and ever so slowly growing the collection that way.

    That’s how most of us pick them. Still, I recommend Humble Bundle assorments too... They can expand your collection very inexpensively.

    The last 3 Paizo Humble Bundles have helped me fill in my pdf collection, where I had only grabbed the hard copies of some books. Note at the $45 dollar level you get the minis and 4 comics which are hard copy/actual minis...all the other stuff is pdf.

    You're on the right path! I see you've already posted in Gameplay, that's good. That will cause you to see when there are new posts on these boards. Keep an eye on the Recruitment thread for new posts there. GMs recruit for their games there, usually on a first-come-first-served basis. Some GMs hold spots in low-level scenarios specifically for newer players; keep an eye out for those in particular!

    Don't worry about stumbling, and don't be afraid to ask questions in this thread. We've got a great community here, very helpful. Most people go out of their way to help newbies, and questions usually get multiple answers within an hour.

    I think my Game is, officially, abandoned.

    GM RePete has already been kind enough to take a poll and it looks like we still have 3 players with low tier characters interested.

    Would someone be able to pick up the GMing duties? Maybe we can add some of the newcomers as well if Hall of the Flesh Eaters is new player friendly enough?

    Or, since we only have 3 people still definitely interested should we players look for another game?

    Hall of the Flesh Eaters is not that new-player friendly. However if you are only new to play by post it should be no problem.

    I hope you can find a replacement GM. I don't have room to pick it up at the moment.

    okay - I bought the latest humble bundle and got all the season 4 modules in my downloads... all good there...

    but the other things all look like comic book issues and a couple of random modules... I don't see anything that look like map pdfs... how do you tell what's what without downloading it all? thx.

    Out of curiosity, is the Seducer Witch banned because CHA as a casting stat is a no-no, or because sexy-time things are a no-no?

    The banning of archetypes is a complex thing in PFS. There’s a number of reasons why archetypes may be disallowed.

    • They don’t fit in with the Pathfinder Society Setting.

    • Their flavor is evil. See Vivisectionist Alchemist.

    • They’re slightly overpowered to the point of making the regular vanilla class irrelevant. See Primalist Bloodrager.

    • They’re considered disruptive to regular play (see my beloved Songbound Curse! How glorious it would be for PbP! But it would cause problems at regular tables.... So no Songbound Curse for PFS.)

    • They’re being held back for a chronicle boon.

    My guess is that it’s being held back for adult content, but who knows... Maybe there’ll be a chronicle boon featuring it.
