Between Sisu's claws and Chellian and Malakos the zombie infront of Niralzi drops into a pile of flesh on the floor.

the zombie in the door (the one that looks like the professor) is still up

I'll start building a character for this!

Can confirm, still a problem, the fix makes its only agonizing lol

Hey I just found this from searching for Fort Drum on the forums. I'm also stationed there.

I'll try to send you a private message on here.

The Exchange

I'd love to toss my hat into the mix as well.

I should say that up front that I have GM'd all of Iron Gods in a RL group. I can also say it is by far my favorite Adventure Path Paizo has ever put out which is why I'm so eager to play in it. I'd love to experience that wonder from the player's point of view. Benefit to that is I'm super experienced with the Technology rules! Also worth noting that we played it as the books were coming out so its been a few years since I ran through book 1.

As far as early character concepts, an android warpriest of brigh is a favorite of mine.

I wanted to ask first if you'd consider someone who has GM'd the path in its entirety before I make a character.

The Exchange

Hey I was just wondering if you had all your players already selected for this adventure?

If not, I'll throw my name in the hat with the initial write up.

Hello!

A little about me:
I've been off the internet for 4-5 months due to some training I received with the Army. Right now I'm stationed in Oklahoma but will be moving bases soon, looks like it should be in North Carolina but nothing is certain with the Army. I've been involved with Pathfinder since 2011 and PFS since 2012. I used to be a real rules nazi but I learned to just move on and have become a lot more laid back and go with the flow of the GM. Right now I should be able to do a fairly decent posting schedule. I am off "work" around 1630-1700 CST everyday but if I need to post during the day I can squeeze one out during a lunch break.

Inter party conflict can be difficult to resolve, most of my characters are more laid back and willing to go with the general theme. I'm not usually one to create a lot of conflict within a party. If I disagree with another character it can usually be resolved. If its a disagreement with another player is when I hope we can both be adults and work through the issues together in the Discussion chat.

I've played a fair bit of PbP and I'd like to think I'm a pretty decent role-player. I usually GM'd but since I'm only now returning from a 5 month hiatus I wanted to get back into the flow of things with playing in a PbP before starting up GMing again. I am not the verbose fella but I won't bore you with my posts either.

I also totally understand if you don't pick me. Being the Army can make things a bit difficult. Its honestly why I'm super hesitant to get back into things but I want to try. I wouldn't be submitting my name in this if I didn't think I could maintain the commitment. As long as you don't require like 5 posts a day I should be good :)

*edit

3pp knowledge:

I know some/bits of 3pp but really not that much. Its been a while since I used 3pp material or needed too. I've never really been against it, I know tons of great 3pp writers but I've just never had a player try to use 3pp materials.

Idk and there's been crazy outages on the site, seems like I can never get on here

I've GM'd all of Iron Gods in real life,

would you be okay with that if I submitted a player character?

I loved the AP and would be overjoyed at the chance to experience it as a player.

I've GM'd all of the Iron Gods AP in real life,

would you consider my application still? I loved the AP so much I want to experience it from the player's perspective.

I wanted to ask before creating and submitting a character.

Hello!

my character this is assigned to will be 60921-12.

My name is Cody, it'll be a pleasure to play with you all!

I checked in earlier as GM Cody but I don't want to confuse anyone, so I'll use my original board name till I figure out what Pre-gen I'm using!

Hey GM Aerondar, I was originally slated to play my Kraken Caller Druid of Besmara for this but after reading the description of the scenario I think it would be better suited if I played my Sovereign Court Investigator.

Are you okay with my subbing like that? If not I am just as excited to play my Kraken Caller.

I would have liked to see a fighter on the cover walking around a city, begging for help, holding out a wand, a sword stuck in his side.

Sure, there is enough shrub grass and weeds and what not to create an entangle, will certainly make the place need a good weeding afterwards though.

Hey guys, I'm also going to be joining this group, I'm pretty excited! I have a number of level 1 and level 2 characters, so I'll kind of wait and see what everyone brings and then pick something that works best with everyone!

Still room for me? I'd love to play! I have a number of characters.

Situations like this always remind us how difficult it can be to interpret a situation based on only half the story.

It also highlights just how different our perceptions of the same situation can be.

The Exchange

Does anyone know if Murder's Mark is repeatable? I played it with a level 1 as part of an all Bard party, died in the last round of the last combat, it was to say the least, splendid.

The Exchange

One of the best ways to make Vermin work is the human alternate racial ability that gives a +2 to any ability score on your companion.

Can't remember the name of the ability, its Heart of the Something I believe.

Makes a nice way to get around have a mindless companion starting at level 1.

I continue to think these errata go too far with the nerfs and never seem to contain any buffs to unusable content. Surely some published content needs to be made stronger and more viable rather than just better by proxy of everything else being unusable.

At least it is just items this time around.

Jaunt Boots got changed from a standard action to a move action. So at least 1 item got improved. Gloves of Dueling still provide a big boost to Weapon Training. They didn't nerf all the good stuff.

As long as they don't do what they did last time and eratta another major book a week or two from now, (Advanced Players?) things will be fine.

Jaunt boots aren't as part of a 5-foot step? Then I've definitely been using them wrong.

Either way, kind of wish I could sell those back, no reason for my archer to not just tumble out of being threatened if its the same action as teleporting.

The middle part, exploring the forest was a bit boring, it seemed to be silly creature after silly creature, the cannibals were interesting but I don't know, it felt like this was going to be a regular 32 page module and then they tacked on a bunch of filler crap to make it a "deluxe" 64 page module.

Some of it, most of it is amazing stuff and would have made a killer 32 page module.

The Exchange

Not sure if this has been brought up, but it looks like we have 15 tables for this, does that qualify for boon support?

The Exchange

So my group just finished this book, they were brutalized in the final fight, I'd added 4 ugothkra's to the fight as well, the ugothkra's all had 2 negative levels by that point however it made a significant difference in the fight and if it weren't for a house rule it would have been a TPK about twice over.

We use the rules from Skulls and Shackles to roll on the table to lose fingers, or suffer scars that stuff where anytime they'd take damage they can elect to fall to -1 hp, stable and roll on the table.

I think that fight between my party of 5 there were 3 scars, one massive wound, 2 lost fingers and lost arm.

Phew. Tough book and I learned a valuable lesson in overestimating the strength of my player's characters.

I have to agree, Sczarni feels like the faction they(the Decimvirate) actually succeeded in burying. Lantern Lodge at least pops up every now and then and none of us will let the Shadow Lodge die however Sczarni was quietly buried out back to make way for the more uptight Qadiran merchant.

Oh sure you can intimidate a guy here and there but the true Sczarni were cutting snitches tongues out back in the good old days.

It was fun to have a "bad boy" faction, one that got their hands dirty and paid for the atonement every now and then.

I'll flag this for the rules forum however I agree with your reading. I read it as being a +2 on the Attack Roll to aid another, since when aiding another's attack you still have to hit an AC 10. This helps with that roll. Same with Aiding a skill check.

The Exchange

This thread was interesting, took my a while to realize it wasn't recent, once I saw Mark though it clicked immediately.

I will say, I love unique chronicle items, especially weapons.

Rant about a Certain Arm found in Emerald Spire floor 1:

Why can't this be enhanced magically! Its so frustrating, it states its a masterwork club for all intents and purposes, let me be a 12th level barbarian going through Eyes with Clanky's Arm, it started with Clanky and it's gonna end with Clanky!

Hah sorry, yeah maybe this was a bad thread to Necro but I remembered this same thing happening last year resetting my progress to 4th star, figured Id come back and post in this thread again, see if anyone else had a similar thing happen.

Hey, not sure if it is just me but I noticed I seemed to be missing some table credit. I noticed it within the last week or so. Anyone else notice something similar?

I don't think that any monstrous race should be killed on sight, there are many adventures in many different locations that present unique monsters that may be there to help the party. Indeed often times killing them can invalidate the secondary success condition or make the adventure all the more harder on the party.

It may be unrealistic however I would like to think that most people don't assume that everyone/thing other than themselves are evil.

I've always envisioned a flute bayonet.

Yeah, I really don't get what the rush is.

Fromper, at least your oracle is not DEAF.

I thought about GMing that chronicle to get the sword on Lyric and then realized that she would have no way to communcate with Gamin, in battle or out. Because Gamin doesn't have lips...

A shame really. I was thinking of teaching him to sing!

That Could be fun, she wouldn't even realize her sword was talking !

I just wanted to make it clear that I wasn't trying to get any more bang for my buck than what the Sword Cane already offers.

I am perfectly happy with the responses that I got! Expect table variation is a better than no, 100% of the time. If occasionally I get to have a fun Sword Parasol and sometimes I have a completely adequate Sword Cane it is better than never having a Sword Parasol!

Especially since while the Sword Cane is a fun weapon, it isn't very good, but PFS shouldn't be all about optimization, sometimes it has to be about having fun too!

Combining a parasol and a sword cane would not be legal under the current PFS campaign rules.

Right I agree, that is why I said,

As I said in my original post, I wasn't looking to combine two separate items, just add a little flavor to my noble lady who doesn't want to look foolish walking around with a cane, however a Parasol that seems sufficiently lady-like!

The responses so far have all been pretty much aligned with what I'd imagined they would be, "expect table variation". However I felt that I'd better cover my bases slightly by confirming that my very slight "reskin" wasn't completely preposterous like a Yellow Tengu and that at best I'd have to expect Table Variation.

The Exchange

And a certain valley...

I've been around for a couple years, I've read the reskinning threads, I've seen the rulings however before I go and interpret them I figured it couldn't hurt to just ask to make sure I am still on track.

Pretty easy question, can I reskin a Swordcane to be a Sword Parasol?

I know the Parasol can give you bonuses, I won't even use them, I'm not trying to mash two items together for cheese or anything, I just feel like my Sovereign Court Investigator would rather use a Sword Parasol than a Sword Cane.

Flavor text for Sword Cane: "This slender light blade lies within a wooden container that serves as both its scabbard and hiding place."

Rules text for Sword Cane: " You can draw the blade from the cane as a swift action (or a free action if you have the Quick Draw feat). An observer must make a DC 20 Perception check to realize an undrawn sword cane is a weapon rather than a walking stick; the DC decreases to 10 if the observer is able to handle the weapon. You can use the Weapon Finesse feat to apply your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier to attack rolls with a sword cane sized for you, even though it isn't a light weapon. You can't wield a sword cane in two hands in order to apply 1-1/2 times your Strength modifier to damage."

So what do you guys think, reskin allowed or no?

The Exchange

Would you consider someone who has Gm'd a significant portion of this adventure path, as a GM for my RL group we are nearing the end of book 4.

1d10 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8
1d10 + 7 ⇒ (10) + 7 = 17
1d10 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15
1d10 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15

Hmmm so all told I'd 8,8,15,15,17,18, pretty good spellcasters stats but I could also make a pretty good unchained rogue with something like this. Hurts that most of book one would be stuck with a penalty to damage, that's a bummer, looking at spellcaster then. I'll add an arcanist here in a bit, let me work it up and see if I can find something.

Question about the Last Chronicle:

The last boon says that if I've received credit for all 6 of the chronicles than I receive the Iron Apotheosis boon. I have some confusion over what that means, I have a level 2 Gunslinger and I want to apply all 6 chronicles to him without playing him until I've applied the sixth chronicle so that I can then start multi-classing Gunslinger/War priest of Casandalee.

I was under the impression I could apply these AP chronicles and have them be HELD chronicles until he receives that level. However do I have credit for a chronicle if it is considered "HELD" on a character? I know that I cannot buy or use anything of a HELD chronicle but I would still get the Iron Apotheosis boon right? Cause I have reported all 6 chronicles and received "Credit"?

I guess I am just not understanding how this boon can even be used, the best character to make with it would be one with the Iron Gods chronicles on it because they have the most amount of Tech Firearms.

I hope someone can help clear up some of my confusion

Its definitely an interesting question, I see this happen often with PFS and sometimes I see it happen like a game of telephone where as a GM I'll say, Lord Mcguffin has the thing we want, go take it from him and don't cause a stink.

Players write down "Lord Muffin has things we want, kill him and all his staff to get it if necessary,"
