We’ve been doing archaeology in Spider-Man for a while now. It started with a truck excavating a car! Last night John watched me excavate the Vulture AND Electro. In Civ 6 I had a bunch of archaeological sites, and I definitely surveyed them. Archaeology!
Tell them about the awful things you say about sea turtle mines, John. That’s my question.
Removed some posts and the replies to them. The bickering needs to stop. Likewise personal attacks are never acceptable on our forums. This thread is getting close to needing to be closed. When you write a post, step away to cool down and reread it before you post it. If you can't write it in a way that isn't aggressive to other posters you probably need to step away from the thread for a while.
I have removed some posts. Different people play the games in different ways. None of those ways are more right than others. There's no need to attack others for having different play styles. The OP asked for a discussion on mechanics, so lets talk about mechanics instead of whether or not they are playing the game correctly.
What an awful thing for John to say. It's WALK of shame. Puns have no place in a good persons repertoire. Usually I do it by shouting something like, "Did you see that truck? It excavated the crap out of that car!" when playing games like Spider-Man. But one of the best ways is to tell him how sad it makes me when he says there is no such thing as sea turtle mines. In Civ 6 I have tons of them. They're real John!
Starfinder Wednesday is at 4pm on the Paizo Twitch channel.
Removed some posts and the replies to them. The back and forth bickering needs to stop. I left up the 2 original posts in that exchange, and James' comment.
If you have rules questions they are better suited for the rules forum. If you need the text from the posts here let me know and I can get it for you.
I have removed a couple of posts and the replies to them. For the first set, it is ok for folks to dislike the new rules. There is no need to attack or belittle the people who don't like PF2. Please don't do it.
For the second set, the discussion has gone a bit off topic. The hero point discussion is better suited to the rules forum. If you create thread and would like any of the removed text from this thread please let us know and we can get it for you.
I have removed a whole lot of posts in this thread. Not only did this thread go wildly off topic, but the bickering, sniping, and tremendously inappropriate discussion that made up the entirety of the last 2 pages is completely unacceptable. This thread will not be reopened for a variety of reasons.
Her name is Aña (ah nyah) Ilnica (ihl nee kuh). She was not a PF2 playtest character. In the home game I played with my group back in New Mexico the Varisians were closest to us, so we kind of turned them into nomadic New Mexicans. Aña is Varisian. Being basically northern New Mexicans we determined that Varisians have their religion pretty baked in to their culture, so most of them are some degree of religious, and even those that are not often acknowledge it in their daily lives. In keeping with all that we determined that they treat Desna as their God figure and the Empyreal Lords as Catholic saints (meaning they are not to be worshiped like deities, but are for talking to and asking for intervention on your behalf). So Aña is pretty religious. Something you can't see in the picture is that on her palms Aña has tattoos of the holy symbols of Falayna and Ashava, her primary patrons, so that they can "guide her hands". Aña herself is very easygoing and prefers to enjoy life. She tends to have an "it is what it is", "the world will keep on spinning", and "we'll burn that bridge when we get to it" view of life and the things she encounters. She is also a very smooth talker and while she is very competent with a sword (she started her Pathfinder life as a Fighter/Duelist but once the Advanced Class Guide came out she became a Swashbuckler) she prefers words.
The dwarf is Dolgrin Rogar. Dolgrin is my favorite of my PF2 playtest characters (several don't have names beyond things like 'stabby' because they were mostly for combat/mechanics tests and didn't do any real roleplay). He owns a bar and discovered a forgotten(?)/abandonded(?) spellbook in one of the rooms when cleaning it up. Knowing how wizards are he feels like he needs to return it. So he carries it with him and is out looking for the owner. In the evenings he feels compelled to look at it even though it is all gibberish to him (this is how he memorizes his spells). He doesn't know he is a wizard and spells are mostly conjurations that he casts by emotion (mostly bar themed, like rats he may find and have to deal with in the cellars). Basically when he has strong or intense emotions, like going into combat, things appear. He doesn't really know why. He served in the army and often talks about that. He was a cook in the army but the way he talks suggests he was a soldier, though he never outright claims to have been. Not many other wizards wear medium armor and wield a battleaxe (poorly).
Only one of them is a PF2 character.
Page 150. The Duelist Fighter. She is one of my most very favorite characters and I have played many incarnations of her in various tabletop and video games. A couple of the colors are off. Like all of my characters she is Chicana and should be a little darker and have dark brown hair. In any case I am super psyched that she is in an official Paizo product!
Page 208. The Conjurer Wizard. This is one of my PF2 playtest characters, and easily my favorite one!
I have removed some posts and the replies to them. There is never a time when making personal attacks on other posters is acceptable on our boards. Take some time to review your post before you submit it. If you find it is aggressive, or attacks instead of contributing meaningfully, you may want to step away from the keyboard until you cool off a bit.
Removed a post and the replies to it. This thread had gone extremely off topic. Snide and sarcastic language do not read well in text and are not conductive to discussion. If you have grievances with other issues bring them up in their respective threads, and remember you will have better luck when it comes to discussion if you are able to actually discuss.
I have set the PF2 items to ship out right away. You will be receiving an email confirmation.
Once the first item of each of the qualifying subscriptions has shipped out you will get the free scenarios. At that time you will be able to go to your My Subscriptions page and select which scenarios you want, PFS or SFS.
I have cancelled Planar Adventures and generated the pF2 items. You will be receiving an updated email confirmation reflecting those changes.
I do want to mention that one of the items in that order, Adventure Path 61, is currently unavailable and is going to keep the order from shipping. Since we usually don't reprint the soft cover books I strongly suspect it will hold up the order indefinitely. I pinged the webstore team so they can tell me if we may be able to get it (sometimes we are able to retrieve stock from distributors). Do you want to leave everything in that order or should we separate out, or cancel AP 61?
