I guess I should have some snacks ready for this stream. I'm thinking goldfish crackers and gummy bears for maximum immersion.

Yeah... it's really bad. I hope this image resolution issue won't overshadow the adventure itself, which looks quite interesting.

Hello, I am told that this is the place to come and see if games are being played. I would like to get into PFS.

Welcome, IgnaNacho! You can make a post in the Gameplay thread, so that Flaxseed Lodge will be added to your Campaigns page and make it easier to watch Recruitment here for people starting up new games.

If this is your first time playing PFS, you should download and read the PFS Guild Guide to understand how the structure works and how to create your character.

If you have any questions you can put them in the Discussion thread, or PM me if you prefer.

Cool promo cards, and a Free RPG Day book to use the new core set as a core set, right away! Very nice.

With the recent blog post noting that the "cool fun factor" bit of the Rising Star boon is about to come to fruition... I've been thinking of running a couple of the higher level Second Seekers missions.

In particular Heat of the Foe (3-6) and Reclaiming the timelost tear(5-8).

Are there enough in tier (and not currently in game) characters who would want to play one or both of these?

I have a level 5 character who could play either of those. (And has some strong ties to the Scoured Stars, so I would quite like to.)

Hmmmm... this could be an interesting cheat sheet to make...

No need—we're greatly simplifying this for season 6.

It'll be unforgettable. (♩...in every way.... ♩)

Nice! I'm all in favor of simplifying that process.

They were talking about the Iconic Encounters that are coming out for each of the Pathfinder iconics. They've been very evocative little story snippets. See them all here. I'd love to get some for the Starfinder iconics at some point!

I just got to watch the episode with Sutter too, and it was a very fun one. You should definitely have him back. It seems like he has a lot of interesting experiences to share. :)

Just dropping in to say that I'm interested in PFS PbP. I went back and forth on a few characters but settled (happily) on Khoda.

Welcome Khoda (and Khoda's player)! It's nice to see new folks come join us. Give a shout if you have any questions.

It would be nice to get an official clarification, though. I assume somebody from Paizo will chime in eventually...

You have indeed! Are you already familiar with PFS? Have you done PBP before?

We're in the middle of our Outpost convention right now, so there aren't as many games kicking off regularly, but this thread you've found is where people come to recruit players so you can keep an eye on this space.

Been a hectic few weeks.

Still sorta looking for a group of some sort.

Hello Era! Have you been able to find a game to play in? If not, what are you looking for? Is there anything else we can do to help?


Pathfinder Adventure, Card Game, Lost Omens, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

They do look that way in the pdf. I got my hard copy in the mail today, and the maps look fine, just like normal quality.

I vaguely recall this happening before with another product: the maps in the pdf only were low res for some reason, and they were able to correct and update them in peoples’ accounts. Perhaps a post in customer service will reach the eyes that need to see it?

Venture-Agent, Online—PbP aka Elinnea

My personal note-taking process rejoices that the organized play will get to have a different abbreviation (PACS) from the game itself (PACG). It also never made sense to me that on the website I had to click through the Pathfinder Society and then another page to get to either the card game or the RPG, so as someone who plays both, having them further differentiated sounds good to me. I get excited about acronyms and website navigation, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I do like the potential of the ACG/PFS crossover specials that we've had, so I hope you might still consider those for the future. But a dedicated ACG special that uses card game mechanics well would also be cool, so I wouldn't mind that if it's the direction you go.

Will the new scenarios be using the Crimson Throne box, or simply the new Core Set? I'm trying to decide whether to buy them both at release or start with the core set and play that for a while first. Knowing how they fit into plans for organized play would help me make that decision.

That was fantastic.

Suddenly I want to play a wizard.


Pathfinder Adventure, Card Game, Lost Omens, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So I was on the right track with my wild vesk/kobold guessing! He's a fun character from the little we've heard.

Including a different ancestry seems like a good idea from a PR standpoint: show people that you can already play with something other than the core ancestries. It's like a bonus sneak preview besides. I'd be interested to hear Jason's thoughts on it too.

I got my pdf today! I always skim through the art and the articles at the back first, and I must say I'm a fan of the "Touring the Archipelago" article. It's a fun angle for examining a location. And who wouldn't like to take a tourist jaunt to the Sun?

Alien Archive creatures:

Janni, medium outsider (native) CR 4
Mephit, small outsider (extraplanar, variety of grafts with different subtypes) CR 3
Suli, medium outsider (native) CR 1 + playable race
Sylph, medium outsider (native) CR 2 + playable race
Salamander, medium outsider (extraplanar, fire) CR 6
Thoqqua, medium outsider (earth, elemental, extraplanar, fire) CR 2

You're in luck! They did an unboxing video on Twitch, and showed off a lot of the art. The adventure material was mostly kept back, for obvious spoiler-related reasons. The video is up on YouTube now here. I'm a big fan of the reference cards myself.

They did not talk about the pdf however, to my memory.


Pathfinder Adventure, Card Game, Lost Omens, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

There's something exciting about getting in on the ground floor of a new thing. :)

Looking forward to it!

Anyone care to provide the links to the subscriptions? I have yet to find the appropriate pages.

From the menu at the top of the page, hover over Store and click on Subscriptions. That brings you here.

You can also get to a subscription from one of the items that will be in it; for example on the Core Rulebook page there's a link after the description that says "Note: This product is part of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscription."

Keep in mind that the details there are for the current subscriptions, and they haven't made final announcements yet about what (if anything) will be changing for the second edition.

My advice: if you're eager to try GMing PF1 society scenarios, just do it, and ignore the hand-wringing and cries of despair from the forums. (Okay, I exaggerate. Maybe.) Don't let it get you down, and play what you want to play. You seem like a motivated person, and if you're excited about what you want to run, you'll probably be able to get some players excited too. I just started PFS a year or two ago, so the vast majority of the scenarios I don't know anything about. That's a lot of content that I'd love to explore, and I'm sure there are others out there like me.

Also yes, the pbp community will definitely have an audience for PF1 for a long time to come. You're quite welcome to join us at the Flaxseed Lodge!

I followed the instructions Sara Marie posted a little higher in this thread. From Paizo's Twitch page on a browser (not the mobile app) there's a box called Roleplay Shows. Clicking on Oblivion Oath brings up the characters' basic info.

I like a good high-charisma wizard. :)

The show was really fun today, especially how clearly excited Joe is about it all. Now I need to go back and re-watch a few parts to get another look at some of the components. (The only downside to watching live: no pause button!) I look forward to hearing more of the story behind its creation.

Class-specific character sheets! I hope that's as good as it sounds, because that sounds pretty great to me.

Oooh! I can hardly wait to hear which classes you'll be playing. (And consequently which ones we'll get a sneak preview of their final forms.) My impressions from the silhouettes are as follows:

Gabe: Vesk! No, that's not it... Kobold? Wait...
Sara: Somebody with an axe! I predict some axe-whacking!
Owen: I know a goblin head when I see one! Either clutching a fuzzball or has magic coming out of one fist.
Katina: Somebody with a lot of hair... and a staff? My money's on druid.

I'm nobody official, but it's a known issue that if you delete the first post of gameplay it hides the whole thread so nobody can post in it, and it looks like the same effect happened to you. I believe the website team has a way to fix this, but it might be faster and easier just to create a new campaign and ask your players to jump over.

(P.S. You can see a whole string of other people who've had the same problem here)


Pathfinder Adventure, Card Game, Lost Omens, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I feel you. I'm glad they started giving us the age/weight/height statistics for new playable races, but I do really miss the common name recommendations that they offered for the core races. A name is a vital part of a character, and I like to tie it into the character's history, culture, and background if I can. Otherwise my names tend to start sounding all the same, or end up in a bucket of orcish/elvish/generic-fantasy-human.

On the other hand, not having suggestions can also mean you're free to choose something for yourself. I gave one of my characters a Chinese-reminiscent name, and in my personal head-canon that's a common sound scheme for her people. If something does get printed on the subject in the future, I can always say that it's her family's particular tradition, if not an entire race.


And I see that they've already sold over 9,000 bundles, so hopefully it's good for Paizo too. :)


Pathfinder Adventure, Card Game, Lost Omens, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

FYI: Paizo had an issue with their ISP and the shipping emails might have been rejected by your email provider, or sent to a spam folder. They're correcting the issue (see details here) but in the meantime you might want to check your digital content to see if it's already there.

Agreed. I haven't gotten to reading the words yet, but the art and design are really nice in this book.


I just picked this up, and you get one code for each tier of the bundle ($1, $8, etc.) So if you'd like to gift away everything on a single tier you could give someone that code, but you can't split items within a tier.


Pathfinder Adventure, Card Game, Lost Omens, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I got the email, but it went to my Junk folder, which it has not done before, so I didn't notice it immediately.


Pathfinder Adventure, Card Game, Lost Omens, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

A theme is just that: a character theme, not a pre-written backstory. They are designed to be intentionally vague, and you can adapt or flavor them in many ways. It's up to the GM to decide if they want to encourage particular types of characters or motivations, or to work with a player to make sure they have a hook to care about this particular story.

I don't live overseas so the shipping isn't too bad for me, but depending on the details it might or might not be worth the 20% discount and potential access to promos. I'm also not sure yet whether my FLGS will be stocking the sets when they come out.

So I too am sitting on my subscription until we get more information, like what the weight of these two sets will be. (Have they announced that anywhere yet?)


2 people marked this as a favorite.

I too wish there were an easy way to see an overview of scenarios and their tags. I made a spreadsheet to track the tags, main locations, continuing storylines, and scenario authors. It was for my own reference, but if you want to use it you can see it here. (Everything is entered manually, mostly based on the scenario product descriptions, so I make no guarantees about its accuracy.)

Sometimes I refer to this wiki article that lists all the scenarios for the season and includes their tags, among other info.

Pfstracker is also a wonderful resource and I heartily recommend it as well. :)

You would be charged for, and sent, both of them. They're each included in the subscription but are being released at the same time.


Pathfinder Adventure, Card Game, Lost Omens, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yup. The core rulebook just says space goblins are very common, novaspawn are rare, and most monsters are average. It's up to the GM to decide on rarity for any particular creature.

The second one. The line is "Reduce the DC to identify a rare creature using Life Science by 5." So only applies when you can use life science to identify the creature, and technically, it only applies to rare creatures (though personally I don't enforce that in my home game and let it apply to any life science identification check because I like giving players creature info).

Compare to the Colonist theme: "Reduce the DC to identify average creatures using Life Science by 5."

And the Death-touched theme: "You can use Perception, rather than Mysticism, to recall knowledge about undead and negative energy effects when you first observe them."

The four-game limit for Outpost is to give everyone a fair chance to sign up for games they want to play. The restriction will be lifted on February 21st. (Though of course, know your own limits and don't sign up for more games than you can handle.)

Edit: Ninja'd by Dennis!

Yup, exactly so. You can even play three different Mavaros concurrently (playing through three different seasons, for example), if you track the cards and upgrades and everything separately. Of course with physical cards it can get complicated to keep swapping them back and forth, so it's important to maintain good records.


I have a level 4, three level 2s, three level 1s, and ideas for a few more characters I haven't created yet. Many of those also have pregen credit waiting for them once they level up some more. A lack of focus will do that to you, but I find it useful to have a whole flock who can sign up for pbp games simultaneously. ^^
