P/S if you're at gen con, I'll be running the PF2e academy sessions in the mornings (except Sunday). Come say hi!


Do people usually make an alias for pregens they play as? Or how does this usually work? I'd love to play as either Lem (bard) or Merisiel (rogue) if it's the class icons.

Liberty's Edge

I've usually created an alias when playing a pregen. But I'm sure it's not mandatory, if you'd prefer to keep the alias list short and clean.

BTW, are the new pregens available for download somewhere?

Liberty's Edge

OR || OR2|| HJC||Glass River Rescue

Karma is right, it's not mandatory, but most people create an alias to keep it clean. And this helps the GM (me) out as well if you have the proper stat block built into the alias header.

The pregens are not yet available for download publicly, but luckily your GM was one of the few that ran the scenario on opening night at gencon! I'll try to upload them during the week, unfortunately right now there are only 6 pregens released for the tier 5. Valeros, Ezren, Fumbus, Kyra, Seelah, Merisiel. So first come first serve!

Another thing, the chronicle can be applied to any character level 1-5, but you must let me know which level you wish to apply so I can document it into the chronicle and apply the appropriate tier reward.


The pregens are available Here

I will play either Fumbus or Merisiel.

I'll fill out my reporting information presently.

Any other info: I'll choose Merisiel to play something different than I usually play.

Liberty's Edge

I’ll pick Kyra. Should be useful :)
I will post the info, once I get the -2001 character created

Something like this GM?

Liberty's Edge

I’ll take Ezren if no one else has claimed him. Will set up my alias shortly.

I can go with Valeros. Might as well get my melee feet wet early.

Liberty's Edge

Yup, the alias looks good.

PSA, if you haven't already read through the new society guide! Do yourself a favour and read it! http://www.organizedplayfoundation.org/encyclopedia/pfs2guide/

Thanks for the link!
A lot of reading there (on top of learning the new game rules) :o

As I haven't played much of the last season, do you know if there's a recap of what's happened in the society (what happened to the old factions and the new ones came from)?
Or is this a clean reboot, where none of the old Society history ever happened?

There is a whole mess of that type of info in the Paizo blogs. I'll see if I can't fish up some specific ones later.

It's a series of blog post starting with this talking about the new faction. https://paizo.com/community/blog/v5748dyo6sgn1?Pathfinder-Society-Second-Ed ition-Preview

As I understand it, 2e is kinda like DC comics rebirth, same universe, the past has happened, but the course of the future has changed due to some sort of cosmic intervention. How did these new factions come to be? Is the blakross family still in existence? Some of the history has slightly changed? The history of the nexus house you'll soon learn is slightly different from what we previously know.

So old society happened but we're going into a new age of pathfinder society, where we start season 1 by discovering the past, starting with the mystery of the open road. This special is a great start to the season!


Male Human (taldan) Fighter (Aldori Swordlord) 03

Hi there, sorry for being late to the party.
Valeros, Ezren, Kyra, Fumbus and Merisiel are taken, I wanted to try Harsk but it seems the lvl 5 pregen is not yet avaiable so I'll go with Amiri.I'm going to create an alias for her soon (and I need to familiarize myself with 2e rules)

Here's Amiri I'll try to fill her character sheet asap.

P.S.

Does anyone know of a good template for 2e online CS?

Liberty's Edge

OR || OR2|| HJC||Glass River Rescue

Michael Hallet's CS seems to be the go to at this time. Although I'm trying to build my own, just so that i understand the math behind 2e myself.

Here's what I'm trying to do in case anyone was curious. Batpony's Sheet


Checking in, sorry I haven't done so before!

Valeros, Ezren, Kyra, Fumbus, Merisiel, and Amiri are taken? How many do we have?

Liberty's Edge

OR || OR2|| HJC||Glass River Rescue

I don't think Fumbus has been taken. We should have exactly 6 players, so I think Fumbus is the last one out.


The pyromaniac goblin it is! I'll get an alias up tomorrow.

I think I've entered everything from the pregen character sheet into Hero Lab Online correctly, but it still gives me warning flags for having one too many cantrips, one too many languages, and one too few class feats. I'm pretty sure the class feat issue is a Hero Lab problem (I have filed a bug report), and the language and cantrip issues are errors on the character sheet. I assume I should just play it as written?


"Fumbus" CN male charhide goblin alchemist 5 | HP 56/56 | AC 22 | F +11 R +13 W +7 | Perc +7 | Stealth +13 | speed 25 | Active Conditions: ---

Fumbus yells a little too loud. "Reporting for duty!"

He chuckles. "Duty..."

How does society training work for the pregens? Also, how does downtime work?

Liberty's Edge

OR || OR2|| HJC||Glass River Rescue

At this time, assume everything on the pregens sheet is as written. As such, Society Training does not come into affect for pregens.

With regards to downtime, I assume you are refering to pregen downtime and not downtime in general? You use the pregens skills for the downtime activity but whatever rewards from it is applied at your characters level.

Eg. if you choose to gain income, the pregen would roll against a level 5 DC, but the reward gain from success is a level 1 reward if you're applying chronicle to a level 1 character.

So I assume we get a consumable from the "all school" table?

You are correct, I am asking specifically about the pregens.

Nope. Pregens get nothing but only what is written on their sheets.

Here's a confirmation from the lead designer for PFS from the paizo blog.

Do pregens interact with this system in any way?

Yes and no. In an early version of this system, there was a special option for pregens. As we looked at it more, though, we realized that asking someone picking up a pregenerated character for the first time and asking them to also choose a bonus item in addition to learning the character would be a bit much.

Instead, each pregenerated character has a pre-selected bonus consumable item of their level, representing the edge that Training would have provided.

That makes sense. Makes it super easy for a new player to pick up and run with a pre-gen.

I'm looking forward to this! Monday is so soon, yet so far away!

I'm not sure if anyone has heard the unfortunate news, but due to Paizo being backed on dropping scenarios, gameday is postponed for 2 weeks. Sorry guys! Looks like you can continue hang low and closer to the date I'll remind the table.

I heard (just now). To be honest I'm not too upset about this: moree time for me to familiarize with the rules!

Amiri's CS is done. I need to check a couple of things still but this is the first moment I had to dedicate some time to PF2 in the last couple of weeks, so I'm quite happy about the results

Under Organized Play -> My Accounts there is a tab for 'boons' right above your organized play ID.. The order should be Summary, Sessions, GM/Event Coordinator, boons.

Wait a couple of months, and the playtest for the APG classes - investigator, oracle, swashbuckler, witch - will start up. I don’t know if they’ll award points for it, but still - looking forward to three of my favorite classes coming back, especially the oracle!

Any way I can have the name of the character read Valeros but not completely prevent me from changing it after the session? I think I'm forgetting something on how to do this.

Liberty's Edge

OR || OR2|| HJC||Glass River Rescue

Not really. Most people just use a dummy alias for this (Not create a character but create an forum alias)

Completely outside of game, while we are level 5 and it's not insane to reach a skill DC 20 to aid, it seems difficult to actually give someone aid, at least at lower levels.


Female Human Barbarian 05 | HP 83/83 | AC 22 | Fort +12 Ref +10 Will +9 | Perc +9 (11) | Athletics +13 | Speed 25' | Melee +14/+9/+4 (2d8+4 or 2d8+10) | Ranged +12 (1d6+4) | Hero Points 01 | Conditions -

@Roxxie: I don't know. We have characters with skills well above 10. If the DC for aid were the same as it used to be that would be a lot of automatic successes, not really fun to autowin stuff IMO

Liberty's Edge

OR || OR2|| HJC||Glass River Rescue

In my mind, as long as you're not making critical failures on aids, then it ain't too bad. Worse case you're making another person's check -1.

Also, I will add, there is more flexibility for GMs, " The typical DC is 20, but the GM might adjust this DC for particularly hard or easy tasks ". So you never know what's behind the number... Also there might be cases at lower levels that forces aid and say the DC is 10 or something... Like how in previous 1e situations, everyone makes the roll, highest roll becomes primary and everyone else is pseudo-aid.

Hi all! Apologies in advance. Part of my work week, I typically do site work on days Tues-Thurs. Normally I can keep up with PBP in my work schedule as I limit my games but I think i went in overenthusiastic on gameday! While i don't intend to drop out of any games, my post will be lacking on these 3 days as I have to prioritize updating my games. And my priority will go to the games I am GM for..

If this is a problem with anyone, let me know and I try to ensure I work something out.

Liberty's Edge

OR || OR2|| HJC||Glass River Rescue

I know i read it up somewhere but for 2e recall knowledge, GM determines the most useful information and divulges accordingly.

How high up is merisiel on these stairs? And how far can she jump as part of one move action?

Liberty's Edge

OR || OR2|| HJC||Glass River Rescue

Each 5 ft square increment is a 5 ft climb. So Merisiel is 50 ft above grade. Red square is a 40ft drop, green is a 50ft drop. The normal rules for falling now is that you take height/2 dmg, and fall prone.

She can't jump as a part of a move action, but she can take a double action to long jump.

There's a lot of risk associated with climbing and jumping. It's within the rules to do it but there's a good chance you'll end of injured before even getting into combat!

Even with Cat Fall that's insane! Thank you
