Greetings, Mister Hillman!
Can you reveal official plans or schedule for Into the Perplexity trials after the first? Or, if series officially canceled, some hints-guides-materials for unofficilal run - maybe story arc points and themes for seven quests left?

Do effects of multiple Djezet Draufgts stack or not? Djezet Draught https://aonsrd.com/MagicItems.aspx?ItemName=Djezet%20Draught&Family=Sta rmetal%20Serums

A) Yes - Djezet Draught bonus untyped, and Bonuses rule "Bonuses that do not list a bonus type do stack, both with each other and with all typed bonuses." https://aonsrd.com/Rules.aspx?ID=154

B) No - Djezet Draught is magical serum and Combining Magic Effects rule "Spells and effects that provide bonuses or penalties to attributes such as attack rolls, damage rolls, and saving throws usually do not stack with themselves if multiple effects would apply to the same attribute." https://aonsrd.com/Rules.aspx?ID=220

Greetings!

Technomancer`s ability Magic Hack states
"When casting a spell, you can apply no more than one magic hack that affects the attributes of a spell (such as distant spell or extended spell)."

Does that mean only
A) you can not apply more than one _same_ magic hack (for example, 2 distant spell hacks to single spell thus tripling its range)
or whole nerfing
B) you can not apply more than one magic hack at the same time (for example, distant spell and harmful spells on same spell bein cast)
?

Greetings. After recent SFS change from Fame-Reputation to Achievement Points I see changes in my Organized Play - GM Event Coordinator tab:
- number of tables of credit decreased by about 20 (from approximately 119 to 99)
- 24 Achievement Points

I think that is because of this: if I enter to edit previus session, then I see that field with the chosen scenario is empty (before that, in all sessions page list id is filled with scenario name); and if I choose scenario for that field and save session, then my Achievement Points total increases.

And I see that there is no more Starfinder Quests Into the Unknown in reporting form - that is why I think I got 20 tables less.

Question is: I have to edit all my 99 tables to rechoose reported scenario for them to get my Achievement Points? And what about Into the Unknown?

Greetings!
I`ve been out of contact with bank for long and my debit card got empty, so couple of subscription orders stuck. Now I`ve added money, pressed try again payment method and all orders but this one are completed now.
Please, check this out - there is enough money and for this order too.

What happens to nonlethal damage after character death? Nonlethal damage zeroed - or stays?

For example, 200 hp character has 100 nonlethal damage and dies at -30 hp. Breath of Life gives him 32 hp, so he is at +2 hp. How many nonlethal damage he has?
A) zero, because he died = became an object, and objects can not have nonlethal damage.
B) 68 (100 nonlethal minus 32 healed by BoL), so at +2 hp and 68 nonlethal damage he is stll unconscious.

What if that 100 nonlethal damage was from kineticist burn?
C) look A)
D) 100 - because kineticist burn can be removed only by rest

About Skitter Crash (Free RPG Day 2019 adventure you wrote that players can use their own skittermanders.

What about Skitter Home (Free RPG Day 2020 adventure)?

Yay!

Question regarding Skitter Home (and actually Skitter Crash as well, since I just noticed the difference between Skitter Shot and the latter two): Are we allowed to use our own Skittermander characters for SFS play? Skitter Shot has language that allows this, but neither Skitter Crash nor Skitter Home do.

Thanks!

Per John Compton last year, you can use your skittermanders as long as they are in the level range, which will extend to this year as well. Sometimes you just gotta all-six it, gree?

Since you are "Organized Play Associate" - these your words are official confirmation? Or they are just an assumption of what will (but not already) happen?

I am sorry for my bad English.


Pathfinder Starfinder Society Subscriber

Can we play our skittermanders, not pregens? There is clarification for Skitter Crash by John Compton (that we can) https://paizo.com/community/blog/v5748dyo6sgpr?Free-RPG-Day-2019-Sanctionin g#8 but what about Skitter Home?

Greetings!
Ive changed payment method for subscriptions, but this order for PFS 1-24\25 and SFS 3-03\04 still Pending. Is that correct?


Pathfinder Starfinder Society Subscriber

While reporting this scenario I`ve seen green line "This scenario is replayable and will grant credit each time it is reported." in reporting form, but not "Repeatable" tag in PDF of website page. So where is the truth?

We've got three classifications in the reporting system: Replayable, Not Replayable, and Consumes Replay. Any scenario with the repeatable tag is coded replayable. Anything you can only get credit for once and replays don't work on (APs and some modules) would get the tag Not Repeatable. Anything not in these two categories gets the Consumes Replay tag.

This helps us future proof the reporting system against a day in which we introduce replays into PFS2 (SFS is in a quasi-tracking with this system, as it was built after we launched SFS. We are looking to go back and adjust the categories, but that is a not today task and would happen at the same time we moved from replays via paper boons to replays tracked online.)

It also means GMs can get full credit each time they run, without the error messages that haunted the PFS1 reporting.

Thank you.

About PF2 quests: is that correct that in PDFs only 1,4 and 9 have Repeatable tag - and all PF2 quests are repeatable in reporting website?

About errors in PFS reporting: I`ve reported 5 sessions of PF2 quests mentioned on Sessions page, but zero tables of credit for PFS2 on GM\Event coordinator page - is that correct?


Pathfinder Starfinder Society Subscriber

And couple months more - still that page
Https://paizo.com/organizedplay/coordinators is down. Temporarily looks like a long time.

And on Organized Play Foundation list still has no information on venture-officers below Regional Coordinators.

4/5 5/55/55/5

Any official answer?

Is that correct that only Quests ##1,4,9 are Repeatable (then reporting website is not correct) - and what logic behind that, why not make all quests evergreen?

Event Reporting Form in SFS 2-05, 2-06, 2-07, 2-08, 2-09, 2-10 is tough to fill:

- there is very short blank space for "GM Name" and much longer blank space for "GM Org Play #" - right in the same string! Maybe switch them places? Org Play # is like 10-11 characters long maximum - names can be much longer.

- there is very short blank space for each character "Org Play #" and almost as long blank space for "Level" - right in the same string! Maybe shorten Level blank space by half? Level is like 1-2 characters long maximum - Org Play # is like 10-11 characters, at least five times longer than level.

"Two characters are engaged in melee if they are enemies of each other and either threatens the other."

Greetings. I am sorry for my bad English, but I do not understand which variant of "either" used here:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/either

a) either = EACH (every one of two)

b) either = OR (one of two)

For instabce: there are two men in near squares, they are enemies, one has longsword, another - unarmed (and no Improved Unarmed Strike, no Natural Attacks etc.) - are they engaged in melee (because they are enemies and one of them with the sword threatens the other)?

Greetings.

On September 10 I`ve bought Order 8055509 and chose to sidecart it with my subscription (status of order Complete and book in Sidecart on page Order History).

On September 16 I got e-mail "A package containing 1 item from Paizo Order #8129111 is expected to ship from the Paizo warehouse by Wednesday, September 18 via Standard Postal Delivery, estimated 4 to 8 business days in transit." about my subsription order.

On september 17 I`ve replied about wether my sidecrated order is in this shipment or not - no answer.

Arvin says, that he served in his "first few years in society" on Alazdra last mission.

Alazdra says that it was 30 years ago.

Lashunta mature at 20 years.

So, considering joining Society at 20 years and "first few years" be at leas 2 years - Arvin was at least 22 during Alazdra last mission and now Arvin is no less than 52 years (look at his picture)! Is that so - or there is some mistake?

I am interested to learn how these 4 were selected in the first place. Were they culled from everyone who took the Second Seekers boon?

What about the many who didn’t? They have no chance to become First Seeker?

To my understanding that is correct, because it was made quite clear from the beginning that would be the case.
Those who reported having completed the Tier 4 faction boon were contacted by email and asked to provide a short description of their characters. Later they were emailed asking for answers to half a dozen or so questions about their character, views, what was important to them, where they saw the society heading etc.

Month after applying (sending e-mail with details from the list in the boon) I got e-mail from Paizo about them getting my application. But I never got their e-mails with questions - not about history (75 words being part of boon application) nor further questions about character.

What does that (no e-mails with questions) mean?

Greetings Mister Hillman.

Thank you for all you do for Paizo roleplaying games.

I am just a Starfinder GM and player, not event organizer, but - I`ll dare to ask you to go to Moscow, Russia on 9th annual Rolecon convention on 19-20th of October.

We definetly can not afford to fund your trip - whole convention budget is like 8000$ (and still hopes for crowdfunding), but we will be Drift-happy to see you..and play your SFS #1-98 %)

Candidates for the First Seeker. Hm. That time when I think I made a mistake, mentioning "build Starfinder Lodge on XXX" as goal for my Rising Star Boon character. But looks cool, I got a friend from Akiton did not said such things - hope to see him and his cloak among the candidates!

P.S. From 25th of September to 19th of November there are 56 days. Thats 8 weeks, twice 4 weeks - why you call 4 weeks a full month? Only february is such a month, other are 4 weeks + 2 days or even 4 weeks + 3 days long.

Greetings. I see in my forum tag, My Profile and PDF society card that I am 5-star GM. It is a mistake - despite having needed 150+10 special/exclusive gmed tables I had not run a qualification game in front of my venture-captain (and he confirmed that did not report such thing) - I am not a 5-star GM

It’s a brand new concept with a lot of moving parts that has only been active for a few days and during what is undoubtedly the busiest time of the year for Paizo and the OPF and when most of the staff are recovering from 20+ hour days for a week plus. So how about you give them a bit to catch their breath and work out the bugs that are inherent in any new endeavor.

And it is totally unexpected that starting not another season of PFS1, but brand new PFS2 with huge rules changes (by starting I mean selling scenarios for PFS2) will raise huge demand of PFS Guide? Such huge demand so it wont wait for a a month later like with SFS v.2.0 guide - not a single thought?

And everybody so tired that can not post even short Paizo Blog post about new rules format and location? Change redirect link for PathfinderSociety.club from https://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety to http://www.organizedplayfoundation.org/encyclopedia/pfs2guide/ ? So tired, really?

You can use F3 and pull up a search tab. I have done that in both Chrome and Mozilla.

How it allows me to search in multiple pages simultaneously?

For example, I search for "Negative" and do not know where it might be - in Quick Start Guide, Organized Play Basics, Player Basics, GM Basics or other 8 different web-pages. So to be sure I did not miss something I have to search for "Negative" in 12 different pages.

In 10th season PFSRPGG this Foundation mentioned in context of volunteering, not as source of rules.

I bought PFS 1A, 1-01, 1-02, 1-03. Each of them has on page 2 statement:
" It is designed for play in the Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign, but it can easily be adapted for use with any world.

Greetings, Mr. Compton.

Congratulations on your new position as Organized Play Lead Developer.

I have question about Pathfinder Society Organized Play Guide for brand new PFS 2 for PF 2.0 rules: currently it is on www.organizedplayfoundation.org and here on Paizo forums RVCs say that it will stay there, and there will be no more neat PDF with good design, so cool in printed version (to hit players with it - no) - is that true, no more PDF designed PFSRPGG from Paizo?

4/5 5/55/55/5

Pathfinder Starfinder Society Subscriber

I hope this web-site with guide is only temporary placeholder for Paizo Team failure to provide PFSRPGG guide for grand restart of Pathfinder Society with restart of all Pathfinder with 2.0 rules. This restart was so unexpected (sarcasm)

And even if it is not temporary we will get official message about it - at least in Paizo Blog

Current web-design conception has some problems:

- searching with Ctrl+F (or Find on page browser option) on many web-pages is harder, than in single PDF document (or single page)

- current document map (above page) has repeated memo about "Pathfinder Society (2Nd Edition)" and then - single letter describing the page! This is ugly and awful, considering that C even does not bring you to Contents!

- Powered by Goblins brings hard memories of Paizo.com dayly and even weekly downtimes. Is this truly better than downloaded PDF?

- And we users can have troubles with internet connections either.

- We (community) can do printable version if we want. Oh. Finally I recognize Paizo style. Maps with printed secred doors-locations-traps on them? Community will do it! Maps for 5-feet tactical combat but with 10-15-20- even 30 (yes, Dead Suns, book 3) feet squares? Community will do it! Guide for Organized Play? Community will do it!
