It would be a hell of a speed run to do Plaguestone in a month of PbP. I think the F2F Plaguestone game I'm in is going to end up somewhere north of 30 hours of game time.

That would be Race for the Runecarved Key, which we did here in 2018.

I love 1e witches, and I hope they keep their role as master debuffers. I'm frankly surprised they're doing Oracles, since you can already do a spontaneous divine caster easily via sorcerer. I hope they really lean into the mystery/revelation thing in 2e.

Murder's Mark is fantastic.

Got it. Thanks, Matt!

I like the magic fang change. I wish there was a similar one for magic weapon, which seems right now to say you can't cast it on a +1 non-striking weapon to temporarily give it the striking property, which seems odd.

I see several effects that refer to ‘the hazard area’, but it’s not on the map. Is there a description somewhere I’m missing? Where do the planted explosives go off? Where does the Thasteron explosion happen?

Finished up my Gameday game today, and I was thinking that it's been a while since I ran a public non-convention PbP. Time to fix that! I'll be running PF2 #1-04 Bandits of Immenwood (tier 1-4). Interested? Sign up here! I'll make selections by the Wednesday, with the goal of starting by the weekend.

I do have one other question: Are we bound by SFS level limits? To put it another way, can I buy level 2 armor from pact worlds/armory?

Grand Lodge

He/Him

Am I right in assuming we should use standard 1st level starting wealth (1000cr)? EDIT: Kate pointed out that it was mentioned earlier and I just missed it. Thanks!

Tuesday sounds good to me. I have my goblin mostly built, just need a name and some gear.

Grand Lodge

He/Him

I've seen that supercharge (technomancer)/overcharge (mechanic) combination used to pretty great effect in SFS.

Grand Lodge

He/Him

If we find ourselves heavy on Engineering/Computers, a dex-heavy mechanic makes a decent gunner if you give them ranks in piloting. I can build that way if we're going to have more need for a gunner than another engineer in starship combat. I think engineer makes more sense RP-wise, but I can make gunner work too.

Grand Lodge

He/Him

Spathinae are so cool!

I like the planetary express/firefly idea, i.e. we are hired to deliver scientists and/or equipment somewhere, and to help them get set up (or something like that).

You're in the wrong lodge, friend. No level 9s, no oradins, and no Salvation for the Sages here in the PF2 lodge. Try over in Flaxseed.

^Such a delightfully weird scenario! Highly recommended if you haven't played it yet.

Grand Lodge

Weird. The site says preorders of the hard copy are expected October 28th (which is where I got the 2 weeks from). I hadn't even noticed the PDF has a different date.

Grand Lodge

He/Him

There are also three new classes coming out in two weeks, if folks are stuck for ideas.

Nice to meet you too, Farol. Other than Kate (who I game with all the time), I'm fairly certain the only person on here I've played with before is Revvy, who I GMed for in Race for the Runecarved Key a year or two ago.

We have quite the time spread, going from Hawaii at one end to Australia at the other. This will be interesting.

I would be up for some sort of group oddity.

I was looking through the Alien Archives today, and what jumped out at me the most is a space goblin exocortex mechanic (and worshipper of Triune, as many space goblins are). The scientists bring him along because he's quite good at getting broken equipment patched up and functional quickly, even if it's a bit janky. The exocortex helps him to rein in some of the more...impulsive goblin behaviors. I'm really enjoying the rehabilitated goblins in PF2, and would be sure to play him in a way that is helpful to the party (as I have in PF2), rather than an agent of chaos. That said, I know some people have strong feelings about goblins, and I can figure out something else if someone (player or GM) is not comfortable with a goblin in the party.

Hi everyone! My name is Dennis Muldoon. I've heard really good things about this AP, and I'm looking forward to it. I really like PbP, and have been doing a lot of it over the last few years--mostly Society play (those of you active in the Flaxseed/Castimir/Cottonseed lodges have probably seen me), but also an AP and several 3rd party games as well.

I'm looking forward to gaming with you all and seeing what everyone comes up with!

Dan, can I request that you create the Gameplay thread, so that we can dot into it? That way this page gets added to our Campaigns page.

Everything is fun until someone is a liability to others.

At that point you should turn on them, and kill them like a pack of rabid hyenas. They might have useful stuff. Better yet, get some use out of their hit points first. Shove them in front of threats. It's survival of the fittest after all.

I'm sure this was meant as a joke, but we do have new players asking questions here, and we don't want to give anyone the wrong idea. This is still Pathfinder Society play--no PvP, no stealing each other's stuff, no throwing your teammates to the wolves. Explore, Report, Cooperate.

Does she have a sidekick in a giant squox costume?

Grand Lodge 5/5 ⦵⦵ Venture-Lieutenant, California—San Francisco Bay Area North & East

Especially since the lowest level listed on the table for that adjustment is level 1, so there's no as-written adjustment for a level 0 leshy.

Grand Lodge 5/5 ⦵⦵ Venture-Lieutenant, California—San Francisco Bay Area North & East

That seems like a reasonable solution, but 'seems like a reasonable solution' isn't really good enough for PFS.

You're the best Hilary! I know Tyranius will do a fantastic job, and I'm glad you'll still be around, but I'm really going to miss having you in charge. Under your leadership these PbP lodges have become the friendliest, most welcoming part of the forums--a safe port in the message-board-storm at times--and I hope you're very proud of the work you've done.

Looking at the spell summon plant or fungus (CRB 376), at level 1, just like with summon animal, you summon a creature of level -1. The problem is there are no plant or fungus creatures of level -1 in the bestiary. That's a real bummer for a level 1 leaf druid. In a home game I would either (a) let the player summon a level 0 leshy, or (b) use a modified Weak adjustment on a level 0 leshy. Would it be possible to get some sort of option for PFS that makes this spell usable as a level 1 spell?

The PFS boons purchasable with Playtest Points now list a cost increase after the first purchase, which is a good update. The listed increase, though, doesn't match the actual increase, at least for the one I've purchased thus far. The 'Experienced Adventurer' boon (start a character at 2nd level) says the starting price is 12 points and that it doubles after each purchase. After purchasing one, however, there is now a listed price of 48 points, 4x the starting price.

Do you know if there is any plan to PDF the guide. I find navigating the online one difficult - I never know if I have actually read everything.

I believe they said they are trying to make that happen, but I would imagine it's not at the top of the priority list regarding the guide. Also, they want the guide to be a living document, rather than something that gets updated once a year, so a PDF has the downside of potentially being out of date very quickly. I do know there are some folks working on improving the usability of the guide as well, so it may get easier soon.

Grand Lodge

All that said, I think you're right, ultimately, and I'm perfectly happy to go along with whatever interpretation Doug wants to roll with for this game.

Grand Lodge

He/Him

It does show Earn Income in smaller units, but only as part of an 8 day block. Like I said, I agree with you that it *should* work that way, and I suspect it will, ultimately, work that way, but the guide doesn't actually say it does right now.

You are not required to spend 8 days to Earn an Income. That is the maximum you can spend on one check to Earn an Income.

That's what I'm hoping it is, but that's not currently clear in the guide.

I suspect the intention was not to stop a player from Earning Income after a quest, but they haven't yet clarified that so who knows.

Yep, works fine. Thanks, Tonya.

One minor piece of feedback: Since there isn't anything called 'Prestige' now, it would be nice if it asked for Fame or something instead.

I just purchased an 'Experienced Adventurer' boon for one of my characters using Playtest Points. The system worked fine, and it shows up fine at the bottom of the page. What caught my eye, though, is that the listed price has now changed from 12 points to 48 points. Is this a bug? If not, and this is intentional, it would be great to have that listed somewhere on that page. I likely would not have selected that boon yet if I knew it would cause the price to increase 4x for future instances.

Still seeing issues. After selecting 2nd edition from the first drop-down menu, I no longer see the 1st edition scenarios on the next menu....but I also don't see the 2nd edition scenarios. Progress, but still not fixed.

In fact, John Compton confirmed it in the product thread.

I certainly assumed that clause applied, and have at least 9 or 10 Heroes for Highdelve credits between playing and GMing.
