I haven't played any Special - ever.

I recommend playing specials in PbP over face to face. In a noisy convention ballroom it is usually impossible to follow much of the story of what is going on and therefore specials end up being a tedious slog of trying to get through as many combats and skill encounters as quickly as possible, with no real idea of what the story driving it all is. In contrast, PbP enables you to follow the action of what is usually a very compelling narrative.


Please add me to the waitlist as well. I've got several PCs in tier that would be available. Thanks!


Ok, in that case I'll bring my witch. She's fun.


With a magus joining the group I'll go with one of my other options.

So far it looks like we've got:

Theodoric/PDK - Fighter (melee tank)
Mage of the Wyrmkin - Bard (melee) OR Zen Archer
Allie - Sorcerer
Zaarah - Magus
Abraham - either Barbarian (melee) or Witch
miteke - ?


Thanks for running this, GM Otha!

I've got three PCs available in tier and I thoroughly enjoy all of them so I'll decide based on our party composition.

Yuri is a level 15 superstitious Barbarian (chained) 12/Fighter 3. He rage cycles, has pounce, spell sunders, has reach 20', and wrecks havoc with come and get me.

Tsrvk is a level 15 Magus (Magus 14/Dawnflower Dervish Bard 1) who is also a melee type. He has the dimensional dervish feat chain for hopping around the battlefield.

Agata is a level 17 Witch with the usual array of hexes and spells. Squishy but lots of support.

I love all three of these characters and would be happy to play any of them.


I would also love to jump in for the Moonscar run if there is a spot. I have three PCs in tier (Barbarian 15, Magus 15, or Witch 17) so I'm happy to offer whatever is needed for party balance.

If you are game, so am I.

Recruitment for 4-22 HERE

Taking the first 4-6 people.

I've played part 1 but if you have a spot available when you get to parts 2 and 3 my level 9 oracle would be interested in finishing the story arc.


I don't have the bandwidth to play/gm anything more right now but I'll say that I find season 4 has some of the most challenging (in a good way) scenarios of all of pf1e.

Looks like we have two no-shows. I'll blame that on myself for starting us so late.

My apologies - I'm one of the no-shows - I've been trying to find the time every day to pull my character together but have to recognize that I just don't have time right now. I hope you all have fun and I look forward to joining one of your tables another time.


My two high tier (level 9) characters both have a lot of overlap with two of the characters that are already posted - I have a lunar oracle with a companion, and I have a sorcerer. So I'm kind of inclined to play one of my other options just so we don't have too much similarity. I have a level 7 psychic but I haven't leveled them up yet and won't be able to until Sunday night or Monday. My level 6 monk (maybe 7, I have to check) would provide some melee, which maybe we need? I think maybe I'm leaning towards the monk unless there are other opinions.

In any case, I still won't be online much (and unable to post character details) until Sunday night or Monday.


Looks like my bloodrager will still be tied up in another game so my options are:

Cavalier 4
Wizard/Rogue 3
Vigilante 2
Paladin/Gunslinger 3

Since it looks like we are likely low tier I'll probably do one of the latter three but will wait to see what fits the party best. I won't be home until Sunday so I won't be able to look at my actual PC folders until then.


I’m still happy with high or low but my vexing dodger is tied up and my psychic is now level 7. Otherwise my options are the same as mentioned before.


I'm heading out of town in the morning for a two week trip. Likely will have very limited time to post until the end of the month but I am onboard for this game - I should be able to post regularly by May 31 (when I think this is scheduled to start?). I'll play my level 3 Bloodrager (presuming that the game he's currently in is finished by that time). If he's not available I've also got:

Cavalier 4
Wizard/Rogue 3
Vigilante 2
Paladin/Gunslinger 3

I'll play any of the characters I mentioned in my previous post (the psychic is now level 7) depending on party need.


I've got different PC options depending on whether we go high or low:

High tier:
Dawa Kookpa - lunar oracle 9 with melee tiger pet and bard shenanigans
Hoprah - sorcerer 9

Low tier:
Bon Jon Bovi - unchained monk 6
Phidöe - vexing dodger/mouser 6 (might be tied up in another game)
Birseko Naam - psychic 6

Happy to play any of these PCs as best fits the rest of the party.

For the upcoming PaizoCon, I'm able to sign up on Warhorn for PbP games for 1e games but not 2e or SF (both of which say "not permitted to sign up"), or at least some games. Some tables seem to be open and some not. Anyone have any idea why that is? Are these other tables due to open at a later date? Or is it perhaps a glitch in the system?

That does sound odd cause if you can sign up for one you should be able to sign up for all systems. Send an email with what is going on to the PaizoCon Committee.

paizoorgplayhq@gmail.com

I will send them a heads up. They will likely need your warhorn name to help look you up.

The only games that should still currently be closed are VIP and author tables. Monday, May 9, 2022 9:00 AM: VIP and Author table signups open for all players. Paizo hotel block closes.

On closer examination, it looks like the tables that I haven't been able to join are Author tables. I had missed that they have a different deadline. Thanks for the clarification!

Two questions about signing up for the PbP games that are part of this year's PaizoCon online:

1) I thought I had seen a notice that player sign ups begin on April 16. However, when I look on warhorn it seems to indicate that the seats open on May 7. Is that correct?

2) Once we purchase the badge for PaizoCon online, do we need to *do anything* to let warhorn know that we have it? Or will that automatically be processed through the system so that we can register for PbP games (once the seats are open for players)?

Many thanks!

The signups for PaizoCon were postponed until May 7th, so that is correct.

Once you purchase the badge, you need to register on the PaizoCon warhorn page. That should be all you need to do before player signups open.

Got it - many thanks!

I have some seekers (14, 15, and 17) who would also be interested in work if someone wants to run something high tier. I would also be interested in running some high tier stuff but I won't have the band width before the summer.


Hi everyone, checking in (thanks to Noral for the invite!) - sorry to be late - I've been on vacation and wasn't checking the boards.

I've got several PCs in tier (4-6, I believe):

Gronkh - Cavalier 4 (doesn't seem like a good fit for a Darklands focussed adventure since he spends all his time riding an axebeak)

Bon Jon Bovi - Unchained Monk 6 - melee frontliner

Vinnie Bandar - Shaman 4/Monk 1 - melee with casting

Birseko Naam - Psychic 6 - pure caster

I'm leaning towards Vinnie just because I haven't played him in a very long time but I would be happy with any of them based on what the party needs so just let me know your thoughts.

Here are my PC options for high tier:

Dawa Kookpa - Lunar Oracle 9 with Tiger melee pet. Due to shenanigans, manages to do a fair job inspiring courage on top of all the usual oracle stuff.

Sir Mr. Proudefeets - Paladin 11 with Griffon mount. It looks like we already have one mounted character so maybe this isn't a good idea.

Hoprah - Sorcerer 9

Undiana Jones - Wizard 10 - uses Elemental Commixture for weird debuffing - complex but interesting

Tull - Warpriest 10 - melee frontliner

Any preferences/needs?


Hi everyone, I'm just joining now (if there's still a spot). I'll check in with a specific PC once I have a chance to see what we have and what is needed but just wanted to let you know that I'm here. Thanks for the invite, GM!


I'm also available if a spot opens up. I have PCs in either tier.


I'm also interested in joining if there are any openings. I've got a variety of PCs in tier.

I'd like to know more about this. Where have you found other changes that are not in the errata? Thanks.


Does it work for PF1e too?


Wow, all of these are great!

Like I said, different atmosphere. Instead of yelling into the void you have a place to yell at.
sounds like fun... and noisy (in real life) :)

In my opinion specials are much more fun via PbP because you can actually follow some of the story. Every special I've played in person (at conventions) was - for me - a pretty boring series of seemingly arbitrary combats and skill checks with no real idea of what was going on. In person, they usually feel super rushed and the noise level makes it nearly impossible to hear the GM or enjoy the social space of the table.

Recruitment for my Ruins of Bonekeep table is now closed, but if there is enough interest for a second table, I can probably run another!

I'm interested.


If we go low tier I'll play my Monk 6, who is a melee type. If we go high tier I have three level 9 options (Oracle (support with melee pet), Sorcerer (typical arcane caster), Warpriest (melee type)).


Checking in as well. I've got multiple possible characters that I can play, depending on what tier we are and what is needed:

High Tier:
* Dawa Kookpa, Lunar Oracle 9 with celestial tiger companion. Besides usual oracle spellcasting and other shenanigans, also manages to do a fair imitation of a bard, with inspiration and banner of the ancient kings.

* Hoprah, Sorcerer 9

* Tull, Warpriest of Desna 9. "Fear the Butterfly!"

Low Tier:
* Bon Jon Bovi, Monk 6

* Vinnie Bhandar, Shaman 5


I'm interested too!


Thanks everyone for the very helpful comments. I guess what I'm trying to sort out is whether there is anything that is "locked" behind the higher levels of proficiency. For example, with Crafting, you can't even attempt to craft a higher level magic item unless you have a higher level of proficiency. But I'm not seeing anything like that with Arcana. Of course, with lower proficiency you will be less effective at, say, Learn a Spell or Recall Knowledge. But there don't appear to be any uses of Arcana that are simply unavailable if you don't go beyond the Trained level. Which, for me, inclines me strongly to go ahead and advance the other three skills, each of which do have features that only open up with Expert/Master/Legendary, and let Arcana languish.


I'm working on a wizard build and for various reasons I have three skills that I want to advance to Legendary, none of which are Arcana. I will have Arcana trained, and a high Int as usual for a wizard, but I'm wondering if there's actually any negative mechanical consequence of not getting Expert/Master/Legendary in Arcana? I'm not seeing any but would greatly appreciate it if anyone can point out what I may have missed.


It took 3 or 4 days between when I paid my paizocon registration and being able to register on warhorn.


Double huh. Never occurred to me that there are Golarion versions of our beloved PbP lodges. Ya learn something every day!


Hi everyone - busy few days - I will try to get my pregen loaded up tomorrow and post in the gameplay thread. Sorry for any delay.


I'm not going to have time to build a PC - is it ok if I just use the Fighter pregen and say that he's a kitsune?


I'm looking at making a Fighter.

Can you be in more thqn one table at a time, for instance I'm already in GM Blake's game with my kobold. Could I join a paizocon table with my goblin?

Yes, with different characters. Any given character can only be in one game at a time. Also, with the exception of some replayable scenarios (or boons that give you replays), you can only play each scenario and GM each scenario once.


Wow - thanks!

Ok thanks and makes sense. I'll spend it on other stuff.


One of my characters has 27 Fame which is about to disappear into the ether (due the Jan 31 cutoff of the Fame system). Not to jinx him or anything but can I spend 25 Fame to buy a Resurrection ritual for him and save it for the future?


Much appreciated everyone. Guess I'll be hiring some hirelings... :-)


Thanks. Ok, I guess I'll look for stuff to spend it on - the only options are the various faction boons, right?
