Scarab Sages

Still no Planar Adventures either. You’d think that they would include a nearly 3 month old hardcover in the first AR update in the last 6 months.

I know what the intended rules should be, but is there any chance of getting clarification on the “punch a dying character to heal them” problem?

The last point under Getting Knocked Out (pg 295).
- If the attack was nonlethal, you do not gain the dying condition or increase your dying condition and you return to 1 Hit Point (though you remain unconscious).

Then the first sentence under Taking Damage While Unconscious (pg 295)
If you take damage while already unconscious, apply the same effects as if you had been knocked out by that damage.

If you are at Dying 1, 2, or 3 and are punched by nonlethal damage you apply the effect as if you were knocked unconscious by that nonlethal damage (as per Taking Damage While Unconscious). That nonlethal damage does not increase your Dying condition and returns you to 1 Hit Point but Unconscious (as per Getting Knocked Out).

I’d like to see a season 10 ending multitable (a 10-99) to signify the end of First Edition. I think they t should also include Tier 15+. There’s only been one scenario, that I can think of, to include such high level characters. It would also allow players to pull out their high level Seekers for one last game.

Aram Zey. Personally I miss their guy handing out our assignments, especially regarding the Tapestry. I know he’s retired as Master of Spells, but I’m willing to bet that, given enough support from Pathfinders (especially the Seekers who remember him), Aram could be given a new position. Master of Tapestries sounds good. After all, none have studied the Hao Jin Tapestry more than him.

Alchemist - Mad Scientist (Horror Adventures) or Mindchemist (Ultimate Magic)

Barbarian - Mooncursed (Horror Adventures) or Titan Mauler (Ultimate Combat

Cleric - Blossoming Light (Adventurers Guide

Fighter - Mutation Warrior (Advanced Class Guide) or a Sanguine Angel (prestige class from Adventurers Guide)

Wizard - Thassilonian Magic type, for pure world flavour

I’ve been doing some searching and it seems that the newest Adventure Path to be sanctioned is Hell’s Rebels. All the way back in September of 2016, about a year and a half ago.

Has there been any word when we will be seeing Strange Aeons (not expecting Hell’s Vengeance) or any others sanctioned?

Scarab Sages

Is there any estimate as to when we will be seeing Strange Aeons sanctioned?

Scarab Sages

Is there a timeline as to when we will see the Strange Aeons AP sanctioned? I seem to remember a Blog post from this time last year saying that it was being worked on.

If the text of the class is unchanged in Adventurer's Guide, then Adventurer's Guide is also a legal source if you have the necessary chronicle.

I was referring to the Boon from finishing the season 4 scenario Waking Rune.

Scarab Sages

If an older chronicle sheet opened up a character option and stated a specific resource is the Adventurers Guide considered a new legal resource if it reprinted that option?

I have the option of creating Thassilonian wizard characters from a certain (well known) chronicle sheet. It states an older and harder to find resource a being needed to make such a character. Thassilonian magic rules are also found in the much newer Adventurers Guide.

Wizard with the Possessed Hand, Hands Autonomy, and Hands Detachment feats. Then take your own hand as a familiar. Finally take the Evolved Familiar feat as much as you can.

Scarab Sages

The affiliation system isn't used in Organized Play. It's all open.

Scarab Sages

Page 6, the first point about pregens...

"• The Roleplaying Guild character must contribute a minimum amount of gold to cover the costs before using any of the pregenerated character’s wealth, depending on the pregenerated character’s level: 0 gp for a 1st-level pregenerated character, 1,000 gp for 4th-level, and 2,000 gp for 7th-level."

Is this new?

2 would make feel better than 3, simply because some of the duplicated abilities (I'm looking at you, Liberty's Edge) don't depend at all upon goals completed, but 'makes me feel better' isn't exactly a good method for interpreting rules.

Scarab Sages also has one that isn't dependent on goals completed (+4 Con for determining when you die of negative Hit Point damage). It's probably best they don't stack.

I'm waiting impatiently to see if Season 9 has the same reward at four goals.

Scarab Sages

Its #2.

There's no way it's intended to earn rewards quicker.

Scarab Sages

I assume that the Scarab Sages Soul Warden reward from season 7 and 8 doesn't stack. We would only get the bonus once then count our total number of completed goals as being 1 higher.

Right?

Scarab Sages

I have some sort dead for a couple scenarios and I'm unable to find a link to the old Open Call forums. I'm just st looking for some guidelines or some hints of what they are looking for in terms of content, tiers, themes or "story beats".

Do the Open Call forums still exist?

I love the Scarab Sages mission briefing. The Diamond Sage has always seemed so serious in other scenarios, this paints her in a new light for me.

The reveal at trend of that same mission made me audibly gasp... I never gasp.

I wouldn't keep my hopes up for the Sanguine Angel. They make it pretty clear in the Gray Maiden article that Erinyes Company is all about serving Thrune and being evil cretinous cretizens.

There is also the group that split off and they are seemingly at odds with Erinyes Company. They would be a viable option for PFS characters.

Scarab Sages

It's not just the waiting 95 days+ since the last update. It's also that a new hardcover was released that impacts a number of players current characters. The sooner the AR update is released the sooner players can make the needed rebuilds and adjustments to characters. It sucks going to a Con and having to make changes to a character the night before.

I've got a few scenarios I've been working on at an irregular pace. Seeing the open call information would be just the prodding I need to finish them up.

Scarab Sages

The official stance from John Compton has been that it is something they are working on for release before GenCon.

So sometime before August 17th. It's been just over three months since the last update as it is though.

Scarab Sages

I just have a question about area D. I can't seem to find any sort of arrival schedule for the Shaitan reinforcements. I find plenty of references to them showing up, just no mention of when or how often.

Scarab Sages

Is it painful?

Depends on how the damage is done. A good example is the Roper. According to the description it does its Strength damage by numbing limbs, as the numbness goes away you get your Strength back. So it's probably not painful.

Scarab Sages

I enforce encumbrance in regards to the gear that characters own, but not with what they find during the scenario. Especially when it comes to class abilities, feats, etc that require the character to not be encumbered. It's come into play many times where Strength damage (and drain) comes into play.

I've also had a number of times where a low to mid level NPC caster has used Ray of Enfeeblment to completely shut down a much higher level Swashbuckler. In one case the caster rolled a 20 on the attack roll, total Strenght penalty brought the character to Strength 1. The players level 11 Swashbuckler was out for the rest of the fight after the enemies first action.

Canny Tumble

Your acrobatic prowess distracts your foes.

Prerequisite(s): Dodge, Mobility, Acrobatics 5 ranks.

Benefit: When you use Acrobatics to move through an opponent’s threatened area or space without provoking an attack of opportunity from that opponent, you gain a +2 circumstance bonus on your next melee attack roll against that opponent and that opponent is denied its Dexterity bonus to AC, as long as you make that attack before the start of your next turn.

I find many people just look over the Feat name and assume it deals with the Uncanny Dodge ability. I've been using it to great effect with a Slayer (Vanguard Archtype). In reality it's good with any character that can deal Sneak Attack damage.

Scarab Sages

John Compton recently replied to a post I made in the thread for the most recent Blog post.
He said that the Adventurers Guide stuff is done and that they are adding a few other resources to it before they update the Additional Resources. He also said it's something they are pushing towards before Gen Con.

So... Soon?

Now... not to be "that guy", when can we get an Additional Resources update to include the new hardcover that specifically deals with different factions and organizations of Golarion? A hardcover that includes the Pathfinder Society.

We have the Adventurer's Guide information ready and are adding a few other resources before posting it. This is definitely something we're pushing toward as we assemble the huge number of scenarios that launch at Gen Con.

I honestly wasn't expecting a reply but thanks for the update!

Scarab Sages

I've always interpreted it like this.

Catch off Guard - gives proficiency in improvised weapons

Throw Anything - allows you to treat improvised weapons as thrown weapons for how they are treated by feats and abilities. Similar to how Slashing Grace works.

In order for a Far Strike monk to Flurry with Improvised Weapons they would need both Catch Off Guard and Throw Anything.

Devils are almost always Lawful (especially Contract Devils). So as long as the contract was signed within the confines of the law of the country/ plane where the signing takes place then it should be valid.

That's just my take on it though.

The stigma associated with Paladins (especially from 1st edition and 2nd edition) seems to be a large part of it. Though many players fail to see that the alignments have some wiggle room.

I find that, for the most part, Paizo has deviated somewhat from the traditional (ie: old) way of viewing alignments. This was really driven home when U started reading theTales novels. Hellknight is a great example, it includes a discussions on alignment between characters who are Lawful Good, Lawful Neutral and Lawful Evil who must work together bound by their "lawfulness". I recommend reading this book for this reason alone.

If they would update the Additional Resources document we could stop speculating about what changes are happening and get on with the process of making changes to characters or making new ones.

Scarab Sages

I've been having great success with Boneshaker. 2D6 +3d6 every three caster levels, but it's the ability to move a target 5 feet when they fail their save that has given my companions flank when they otherwise wouldn't have that I love.

Scarab Sages

Blakros Matrimony, Library of the Lion, The Disappeared... the non combat scenarios tend to lend themselves to lots of roleplaying. Though any scenario has opportunity with the right players.

Scarab Sages

I just want the Strange Aeon chronicle sheets released. Though all those Mesmerist feast from Psychic Anthology would be amazing.

Scarab Sages

Now comes the long wait till the PFS Chronicle sheets for this AP are released!

Scarab Sages

You could play through Portal of the Sacred Rune or Waking Rune. Both are fun scenarios, though I will say that Waking Rune is more fun if you've also been through the "lead up" scenarios from Season 4.

Have you thought of doing the All for Immortality seeker arc? Eyeys of the Ten may be a fun scenario but it's been showing it's age for a while, it's also good for characters 12-15, meaning you could play through some modules with the character first.

Scarab Sages

I placed this order on December 8th,and according to the information provided it was processed and shipped on December 14th.I still haven't received it.

Is there a way to track it's progress of find out what the hold up is?

Scarab Sages

I'd look at the sanctioned chronical sheets used in PFS. They usually give some suggested level ranges that the modules are supposed to be played at.

Academy is suggested for levels 12 - 14
Moonscar is suggested for levels 15 - 17

I'm not sure about Doom. These will provide good starting points for your levels.

Scarab Sages

Thanks to the suggestions of those who have replied I've started work on intros for some of the scenarios.

For Feast of Dust and The Witchwar Legacy I'm still undecided on who I want to use. For Academy of Secrets I was going to use either the Master of Scrolls or the Master of Spells. I decided that a meeting at a certain bait and tackle shop with Muesello would be a great way to start Tomb of the Iron Medusa. The Moonscar actually starts with a member of the Decemverit contacting the PCs and only needs a little modifying.

Scarab Sages

I'm wanting to start running some modules for some of my players. To prepare I'm searching for some venture-captain style mission introductions.
I've looked on GM Shared Prep but haven't found anything yet. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of where I could find some or had some advice regarding writing my own.

The modules in question are Academy of Secrets, Tomb of the Iron Medusa, The Moonscar, The Witchwar Legacy and all three parts of Feast of Dust.

I think Unchained did a fair job of fixing the Rogue. They just need to deal with the crapy Talents.
In the mean time try the Slayer with the Vanguard Archtype.

Scarab Sages

Interested!

Thanks!

Scarab Sages

I'm in the middle of planning out my next character for organized play and I have a question.

Do levels in Dragon Disciple stack with levels of Bloodrager for determining the Bloodline powers?

The description of the Dragon Disciple states that levels of Dragon Disciple "stack" with those of Sorcerer for determining the Bloodline powers, but the Dragon Disciple was written up before the Bloodrager class was released.

Has there been an official statement about this? What are the chances of getting one?

Templates are your friend.

Zombies and Skeletons of huge creatures are usually quite a bit easier to handle than the "original".

You can also apply the giant template to any large creature without making it much more dangerous.

Running into a Giant Dire Boar Skeleton would look terrifying but it's just a CR 3 encounter. Hits hard but goes down relatively fast, especially compared to the Con 17 + thoughness + ferocity original.

thanks, I'll definitely look into the giant and skeleton templates.

Later on in your game or when the players face a boss type creature you can apply the Giant Template more than one, each time applying all the bonuses/ penalties and increasing the size category by one step.

Scarab Sages

Has there been any word as to when we will be seeing some of the newer modules (after Daughters of Fury) added to the sanctioned modules list?

I'm interested in running Down the Blighted Path but haven't seen anything for it in regards to reward sheets or if it will even be sanctioned.

Hey Craig,

Probably just someone keying in the wrong PFS ID. What Event number/session number was your character incorrectly reported into? And which of your characters was incorrectly reported? Once I have that, I can go ahead and remove your character from the session.

It was event number 40195 (Dexcon 19) and character number 171689-1.

Sorry about the delay in my reply.
