Most of my games are coming to a close so

I'm looking to host a game! And also play a game.. Any GMs looking for a GM campaign trade?


I was offering trades a couple weeks ago. What did you need to play?


I'm looking for three more players that can post at least once per day (preferably more than once) to participate in #3–23: The Goblinblood Dead. This is a 1-5 scenario. If you're interested and you can keep up with my posting expectations please check in here

Quote:
More than a decade has passed since the Goblinblood Wars left the nation of Isger in shambles, and the Pathfinder Society uses the many abandoned roads through the county's interior to smuggle valuable relics. But when a series of attacks on the Varisian caravans carrying the illicit cargo puts the route in jeopardy, it falls to the PCs to investigate and rid the region of the threat to the Society's operations.


Wish I had someone good available for that, sounds like my kinda mission. Another time perhaps. Love the upbeat posting schedule.


As in the gameplay thread, starting up a CORE game of The City of Strangers Part I: The Shadow Gambit. Signups will run through tomorrow, ending at 9 P.M. Central, and if there are more than six signed up there will be a lottery shortly after. I am looking for at least one post a day. Sign-up sheet

All Flaxseed expectations are to be observed.


I'm looking for three more players that can post at least once per day (preferably more than once) to participate in #0-22: Fingerprints of the Fiend. This is a 7-11 scenario. If you're interested and you can keep up with my posting expectations please check in here

Quote:
When a retired Pathfinder's nephew goes missing after allegedly discovered the fabled city of Rachikan of the ancient Jistka Imperium, he turns to the Society for help. Now you've been sent to the coast of devil-tainted Cheliax to uncover the missing nephew's whereabouts and to, quite possibly, uncover one of the most sought-after legendary cities on Golarion. But you have to move quick! The Aspis Consortium is rumored to be racing to the site ahead of you and their involvement could spell disaster for the Pathfinder Society.

Liberty's Edge

Looking for a few more brave adventurers to join Feral in 5-23, Cairn of Shadows. This is a tier 5-9, and we will be playing in standard!

Recruitment Here!

The innumerable cairns and burial mounds of Barrowmoor in northern Nidal contain untold treasures and terrors, and the local taboos and Nidalese theocracy are typically enough to keep any but the boldest from exploring the site; however, when the Blakros family informs the Pathfinder Society that their shared enemy is in pursuit of a dangerous artifact, the PCs must brave the shadow-stricken region to keep this object from falling into the wrong hands.

I have one seat free at a Classic table of Race to Seekers folly over at Myth-Weavers. It will be a low tier table. I'm aiming to take the group on to part 3 as well if you survive...

This will be my first time running a game here so I wanted to run a older scenario I enjoyed long ago.

I'm starting up a PFS game of The Frozen Fingers of Midnight. Because it is season 0 I want to limit this to only five players. I'll keep the signups open through tomorrow 7 PM Pacific. I'm looking for at least a post per day.

Sign Up Sheet

I signed up, but I've already played it in Classic.

Would you consider CORE?

Grand Lodge

What Nefreet said. I also signed up, I totally understand if you don't want to do CORE though.


I'll keep it in mind, but for this game I do want to run this as Classic just because that is what I'm more comfortable with.

Assuming I'm comfortable with this format I'll continue running games and will consider CORE for those.

Kk. I removed myself from the list. Have fun!!

Grand Lodge

Okay, have fun! Could someone remove me from the list? I will myself in a few hours, once I'm off mobile.

Edit: Thanks to whoever did the deed.

What's the rule on replays? (DHTBIFOMN)


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That you can't replay a scenario (in the same campaign) unless you notify the GM upfront and use a GM star for the replay.

You can not replay a scenario more than once.


how does running the Evergreen campaigns work for DM's. Say I run one on line and then for a PFS here at home? Do I apply the credits to different characters that are CORE or Standard?

EVERGREEN ADVENTURES wrote:
All Tier 1 and 1-2 adventures can be replayed an unlimited number of times with a 1st-level character for credit. The Tier 1 and 1–2 adventures can also be played with a 2nd-level character once for credit in each campaign mode (Core and Standard Modes). GMs receive another Chronicle sheet each time they run one of the Tier 1 and Tier 1-2 adventures, but can only apply a Chronicle sheet to one 2nd-level character per adventure per campaign mode.


So if I run one again I apply the credit to a 2nd level character correct?

Grand Lodge

Or another 1st level character. One 2nd level character can have credit, and an unlimited number of 1st level characters. And play and GM credits are separate, so one 2nd level character can play, and one can receive GM credit.


Very nice. This is very helpful! Thank you all so much.

Are you sure about that? From the wording, I wasn't sure if you could only apply credit to a 2nd level once, regardless of whether it was from playing or GMing.

Yes, I am sure. :)

Grand Lodge

Pretty sure this is NOT what is being asked but just to be sure it is not mis read.

You can NEVER apply credit for the same scenario twice to one character . You can not play a scenario for credit and then run it for credit on the same character . Nor can you use gm stars replay to play or run a scenario twice with the same character or any other combination

Liberty's Edge

Thanks for the info everyone. I'm a bit confused still so I'll use an example:

I'm a GM with one star with multiple characters. One of my characters has "The Confirmation" chronicle sheet, received as a player when another GM ran the game (i.e. not me).

I want to run "The Confirmation" for a bunch of new local Pathfinder Society members. Can I GM credit the chronicle sheet to one of my new 1st level characters or just when one of my 1st level PCs becomes 2nd level?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure, Rulebook Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

You can credit it to any 1st level character, so long as they don't already have credit for it.

That's not the part of the Guide I was confused by.

That last sentence makes me think that maybe you can only get player credit OR GM credit for a level 2. The whole thing's vague enough that I'm not sure.

It's worth noting that the answer to your question would be the same, even if you were talking about a non-replayable scenario. You can play the scenario and get credit for it on the PC that played it. Then, you can GM the scenario, and apply the credit to a different PC than the one who played it. Or you can do that in reverse order (GM it and then play it). As long as it's two different PCs getting the credit, it's all good, and it doesn't matter what level they are (within the level range of the adventure, of course).

In the case of The Confirmation, and other replayable level 1s, you can do this over and over, as long as the PCs in question are all level 1. For instance, I've played First Steps 1 with 5 different PCs, and GMed it 6 times, so 11 of my PCs have credit for that adventure. You can also get credit once on a level 2 for those that are tier 1-2 (The Confirmation, Wounded Wisp, etc).

Hey Chaine!
With evergreens, you can get credit each time you run the adventure. There are only two stipulations
1) You can apply it to a 1st level character, as long as they don't have credit for that adventure yet.
2) You can apply it to a 2nd level character, as long as they don't have credit for that adventure. You may only do this once.

Hopefully that helps!

As you may have noticed, not vague enough to bother me. :)


Sign ups for Frozen Fingers of Midnight filled faster than I had expected. Closing it early.

DebugAMP, batpony, RePete, Buzzby, and Korolan can report to the discussion thread here.


Thanks for going through the time to answer that question. It makes sense.
Once as a player, once as DM. Confirmation 1st level or 2nd provided never done it before.

Sweet! so basically, it's a GM exception that allows you to apply these Evergreen on 2nd level PCs as well? (in the case of Confirmation, if applied to a 2nd level PC, would the chronicle sheet grant the free Wayfinder as well?)

It's not strictly a GM thing - anyone can play an evergreen with a lvl 2 once, GM or not. If I follow, what's being said here is that it works the same way for GM credits - you can GM an evergreen as many times as you want, and one of those times you can apply the credit to a lvl 2 rather than a lvl 1.

As for The Confirmation, my reading of the chronicle sheet is that only your first PC to receive the chronicle gets a free wayfinder, whether that was for playing or GMing; you don't get a second free wayfinder the first time you GM it.

Shadow Lodge

That is my understanding as well.

For the very first character you apply credit to, you get a free Wayfinder.

Confirmed Field Agent wrote:
Having successfully completed and documented your Confirmation, one of the Three Masters has formally recognized you as a field agent and given you a wayfinder engraved with your name and the date of your graduation. If this is the first time you have received this boon for any of your characters, you receive this wayfinder for free. . .

For all other characters, it has to be purchased either as normal, (250gp), or by spending 1PP.

Confirmed Field Agent wrote:
. . . otherwise, you may acquire it by spending 1 Prestige Point.

The last part applies regardless of the above two possibilities if it applies.

Confirmed Field Agent" wrote:
Furthermore, if you assign this Chronicle sheet to a character whose starting XP is 0, you reduce the Prestige Point cost of any wayfinder enhancement vanities you purchase to modify this wayfinder by 1 (minimum 1).

The one exception of note is that PFS and PFS Core are technically separate Campaigns, so you could apply the Boon for the first time to a Core Character, and also apply it to a 2nd Level Core Character even if you had already done it in the PFS Campaign.
