Can a hireling from said boon take Lore:Pathfinder Society as its lore skill?

Thanks Doc!

SFS has really picked up at my local lodge recently, with characters just now breaking into the level 3-4 range. I am wondering if there are any scenarios at this level range i can run to explore the mystery of the Scoured Stars? Thank you.

4/5

We will be running it Saturday February 9th at LodgeCon in Peotone, Illinois. It is on Warhorn. Come on down and join us!


Its good to know that 1.6 will be the last one for some time. I hope now we can get our brains around it all now and give it another shot. Thanks!

Nobody in my region has the time to keep up with all the updates. That is why we have abandoned the playtest. No gm feels confident enough in his knowledge to run it. I think we need to put on the brakes and give folks a chance to catch up. Right now it feels like a runaway train that we bought a ticket for (the original playtest document) that is now taking us to an unknown station. I feel overwhelmed by the bi-weekly changes, and its making me doubt the quality of the end product. Does anyone else feel this way? I love Pathfinder and PFS dearly, but i am despairing for its future!

Can someone explain how the sleeping gas/blue whinnis poison works? If the pc makes the initial save do they have to make more saves while in the gas. Also, how would you wake a pc who has gone unconscious front this gas?


Would an Urban Barbarian's ability to take mental actions while raging allow him to cast psychic spells or activate implement powers while raging, or it be an emotional state/effect that would preclude such abilities?

Is my proposal for a nickname. There seems to be a preponderance of reading and organizing info sources this year. How many times have we been in "stacks"? Not that I'm knocking it, with at least four professional librarian characters I've enjoyed it immensely! But it seems ubiquitous this year. Any thoughts?

Miss Piggy could have at least one level in Monk or Brawler :)

I have a 7th level Half Orc Belzkan War Drummer/Totemic Skald named Any' Maul. During mission briefings him will often use Summon Instrument to call a drum and gnaw on it.

Are any options being offered to Thundercaller Bards after the Nerf to their Thunder Call and Call Lighting performances, requiring them to be standard actions at any level? I'm not saying its unfair, the new rule is what it is. I just want to know my options.

I like this idea as well. Along with the reasons mentioned above, it could simplify bookkeeping as well. Nice round numbers that could make it easy to know how much wealth a character should have. Big fan of your idea Pirate Rob, I hope this winds up being another fine contribution from you. Might be better than what you did to Bahb's paladin. Might.

All for tighter tiers, 3xp per level, and higher 12+ level content!

Good point Michael Donley! I guess I don't need to worry about the five more specials I needed for my fifth star.

4/5

I second the replay for stars idea proposed above. That way when the new content comes out experienced GMs can rerun the limited scenarios for multiple tables and still get credit.

My main concern lies in characters and npcs having different build rules. I have had a tough time getting my head around it in Starfinder, and don't want to see it in Pathfinders. Often times an enemy can become a friend or vise versa. I want all the beings in my RPG world to be built using the same rules.

4/5

Played this yesterday with a fairly inexperienced GM who did a great job. The only fault I found was the GL cipher, but we had no GLs in the party. Otherwise it was my mindchemist alchemist/foresight wizard with profession librarian FTW!

4/5

As an individual who runs as least twice as much as he plays I wish that the Alien Archive boon allowed GMs to get credit on the boon for sessions run as well as sessions played. I do not have the financial resources to attend cons, and we are having a lot of trouble getting authorized for the RSP in our area. Our one VO is trying his best to get it going, but it seems like campaign leadership is dragging its feet on this issue. Therefore it is very difficult for myself and other GMs in the area to earn racial boons. By allowing GMs to apply credit to this boon it would reward GMs in areas that do not have the RSP going. I do not see any downside to allowing GMs to apply credit to this , while the upside would reward GMs for the time, effort, and resources expended in supporting organized play. Not allowing GMs to do so makes me feel like our efforts are not particularly valued by campaign leadership.


Thanks folks I get it now. Its about provoking AOOs, not taking them. My bad.


At fourth level the Ectoplasmist archetype of Spiritualist gains additional reach with its ectoplasmic lash. I am confused about its potential for AOOs. The book and PRD state "Attacks with the lashes' extended reach provoke attacks of opportunity just as if the ectoplasmist were attacking with a ranged weapon". However, ranged weapons to not grant AOOs as I understand it. Is this an error, or are they unable to take AOOs with their extended reach. If so it seems nonsensical and counterintuitive. I have been unable to find any errata on this issue, and seek clarification. As I am building one now for PFS, I'm trying to decide if I should take Combat Reflexes. Any help or input is appreciated, thank you.

Thank you Walter Sheppard! I am so using your song in my session Thursday. One thing, Soundcloud is telling me it can't play the track. I will sing it if I must but I would much rather use the track.

Edit - it does work on my phone. So perfect!


Thanks for the insight.


I hope that some of these are in the works. I would love to read some stories set in these worlds!


I agree with the OP, why no bases? I am quite disappointed Paizo!

Asking to be sure, is this scenario still restricted to cons only? Its been over a year so I hope not, I would like to run it locally.

Ran this for the first time today, completely cold. We did the race in abstract and everyone enjoyed it. I'm sure I missed some mechanic details, but it seemed to come down to fail Piloting for half speed or succeed for full speed. With Iseph the Android Operative remote piloting at +11 the party succeeded easily at the DC 14 check (4 player) and won handily. He didn't miss a check even after being shot.

4/5

I am against this rule change because it seems unneeded. I never knew there was a problem related to this. When it comes to PFS, I certainly do not want to go through my 20 some characters and adjust the many who carry masterwork or magic cold iron, silvered, and adamantine weapons.

Thank you for your feedback. Sebastian, one of the reasons I'm so keen to score that 4th star is so that I may start running those 4 star specials.

Two examples that appears on one list and not the other are the Emerald Spire level 9 and 8-18. They seem to be mostly sessions on the #32461, which is used by the Mt. Prospect, IL lodge where I run often. The VA there did not know what was going on either.

I realize this may all stem from me not fully understanding how the system works, and I appreciate your feedback.

... of where, oh where could they be?

Here's the jist. I'm keen to score my fourth star, but I have been sitting in the low 90s for several months. In the meantime I have run enough tables to push me up to 100 but they are not showing up on that tab. They show up on my GM Sessions tab, and are credited to my characters, but not to my stars. Can anyone give me a clue what might be going on? Thank you.

Glad I could be of assistance Linda.

Thank you Terminalmancer! However, just for clarity shouldn't it say "Runeguard's prerequisites require Spell Focus instead of Scribe Scroll" as opposed to "Runeguards get Spell Focus instead of Scribe Scroll"?

One more question. In area A8 at tier 4-5 Glibeldring's tactics state that "She uses her breath weapon before closing to melee." However, nowhere in her stat block does it list stats for a breath weapon. Since she is not a mutant goblin, I will assume this was mistakenly included until I hear otherwise. Still looks awesome! I like the map as well. Compact while fitting in a lot of rooms, with simple 90 and 45 degree angles. Should be easy to draw. I have high hopes for this one.

4/5

Prepping this for Monday. My first question is about the Runewarden's Teachings boon, the Runeguard prestige class, and the Scribe Scroll feat prerequisite for it. No crafting feats in PFS, so how does a pc qualify for Runeguard. The chronicle states "Refer to the Campaign Clarifications page for this prestige class", but I cannot find any reference to it on the CC page. Otherwise I am stoked to run this. FLYING, FIRE BREATHING, MUTANT GOBLINS!!! Hell yeah!


I have noticed that the last four sessions I have GM'ed have been credited to the characters and listed on my GM Sessions tab, but not on the GM/Coordinator tab that tracks GM stars. I am only a few tables away from my 4th star, so my interest in this is keen. Thank you for any help.

4/5

Devil's advocate what if they stashed the stuff between the meeting with the VC who tells them they can't bring their stuff and the opening ceremonies when they are stripped. There are at least 1d3 hours available between the two as a Diplomacy to gather info is called for in between.

4/5

I ran at the 1-2 this today and both I and my party enjoyed it immensely. It certainly helped that my party embraced the challenges involved. I plan to write a review after I play it tomorrow at another venue.

I do have a few questions. I was unable to determine if a single PC can attempt more than one Advantage attempt per phase, not including Gather Resources with the -5 penalty.

The other table at our venue today finished very quickly as one of our out the box thinkers used Invisibility and a Handy Haversack to sneak out the night before and bury the party's best equipment along their next day's route. My question is how could/should future GMs handle this tactic as I have no doubt it shall happen again at some table, some time. My hat is off to the player in question for his inventive playing, but it seems like it would render the scenario a walkthrough.

Thanks for any input!


As I understand it snake companions can't wear armor and don't get any magic item slots, but can they wear saddles, saddlebags, or anything else? This is for a PFS character if it makes a difference. Thank you for any input, discussion, or explanation.

4/5

... that are not We Be Goblins, The Frostfur Captives, Rise of the Goblin Guild, or Burnt Offerings. One of the GMs in our lodge loves to run goblins and I'm trying to find more scenarios for him. Thanks for the help.

...is just that. So many of the names in scenarios are odd and/or complicated. If GMs had phonetic spellings we could come much closer to proper pronunciation without looking the fool trying to figure them out and repeat them properly. I am aware this would add slightly to the word count, but I feel it would be worth it.

4/5

Where do I find this boon?

4/5

Looking for some clarification on snake companions. Can they wear anything at all without Extra Item Slot? It seems the FAQ calls out no barding, no neck, no nothin'. If so it seems quite unfair to those who wish to have a serpentine companion. Am I missing something?

4/5

Thanks folks! Looks like those boxes are going to be filling up quickly as I am both playing and running Forged in Flame and Tyranny of Winds over the next few months.

4/5

I have a Sylph Investigator that has credit for scenario 7-99, and thus has the Elemental Awakening Boon. If I play and run a scenario that offers Elemental Affinity Boons, say 8-08, do I attach copies of both chronicle sheets to the chronicle from 7-99 and check off a box or boxes on Elemental Awakening for both sheets attached? I am aware you cannot have credit for the same scenario on the same characters, but in this case it is just for the boon, not credit. Thank you for any insight.

4/5

This is great!! It should appear on the PFS front page so everyone knows about it.

The boon from 6-21 specifically allows a LN master.

But is the boon from 6-21 needed to take him as a familiar?

4/5

Played this today and enjoyed it. I do have a question about the Kami Reunited boon and taking Tanabaru as a familiar. Can you do so if the PC in question does not have the Tanabaru's respect boon from 6-21? If so does Tanabaru remain a Spirit Oni or does he become a Kami? If he does remain a Spirit Oni how does one take him as a familiar since a Spirit Oni normally requires a Lawful Evil master? Is there a work around for this? Thank you for any clarification.

We B4 Goblins is still not available to be created as an event. How do I get an Event Code and report my Free RPG Day event?

I do not see We B4 Goblins as a selection for creating an event. How do I create the event, acquire an event code, and report my Free RPG Day event?
