Having arrived at the Iruxi island-city of Ekkeshikaar as part of an expedition put together by the Pathfinder Mirian Raas to re-establish ancient trade routes between the nation of Vdrian (formerly Sargava) and the Irouxi of Ekkeshikaar.

The expedition has arrived and negotiations have begun. With Mirian's attention focused elsewhere the diplomatic efforts are being led by the female half-orc Calisro Benarry and the Half-elf Venture-Captain Eras the Needle.

These two leaders have called you to a small conference room located in the embassy suite that the Iruxi hosts have graciously granted to your expedition during your stay. Calisro and Eras are dealing with a minor matter before joining the conference, so you have a few moments among yourselves.

(Please feel free to describe your character and actions.)

Pathfinder Society Scenario #1-02: The Mosquito Witch

A Pathfinder Society 2nd Edition Scenario designed for levels 1–4 (Subtiers 1–2 and 3–4).

Decades ago, witnesses reported a fearsome cryptid outside of the quiet River Kingdoms town of Shimmerford. Dubbed the Mosquito Witch, it was rarely seen since and quickly became a beloved local legend that the town celebrates and promotes to attract visitors. But when recent attacks began savaging livestock and townsfolk alike, many have started believing the Mosquito Witch was real all along. The PCs travel to Shimmerford to unravel the cryptid mystery, but might they just become the witch's next victim?

Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–07: Valley of Veiled Flame (PFRPG)

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 5–9.

For years a Pathfinder team has surveyed Qadira’s Zho Mountains in an attempt to reconcile its twisting valleys with a series of old maps recovered years ago on the Silken Way. When the team disappears soon after reporting a strange illusory effect in a mountain pass, the Society sends the PCs—funded by an unusual benefactor—to uncover whatever is hidden in those peaks and rescue the agents.

Content in “Valley of Veiled Flame” also contributes directly to the ongoing storylines of the Liberty’s Edge and Silver Crusade factions.

Looking for GM who would like to take over an established long running Kingmaker campaign game.

This Kingmaker game has been ongoing since January 2013. I have GMed it for a little over 2 years taking over from the first original GM, and I am ready to take a break.

The players are looking forward to continuing the game and particularly enjoy the Roleplay aspect of the game.

Currently, the adventure is near the end of Book 2 The River Runs Red facing the Troll threat.

If you are interested or have questions please post here or PM me.

Is it my imagination or do only Fighters, Paladins, and archetype fighters gain the Attack of Opportunity reaction???


In the Playtest rule book the special material Darkwood chart (pg 355) for hardness has an Expert column , but there is no Expert row in the cost chart. All the other special materials have matching rows and columns between the cost and hardness charts.

Missing cost for Expert Darkwood special material.

Pre-Pathfinder the issue was 15 minute adventuring day. First few encounters result in Casters using most of their spells in the battle or on healing characters, causing the party to call it day after 15 minutes of game time.

Pathfinder introduced cheap healing via Wand of Cure Light Wounds. Now the issue is after every fight the PC top off their hit points, resulting in the need to make every encounter that matters to be deadly enough to wipe out all the characters hit points.

Pathfinder 2.0 is introducing resonance which effectively turns item use into a daily resource on par with spell casting. Its as if everyone is given a spell-like ability called “Activate Item”. Useable once per level + Chr Bonus per day. Resonance covers most all permanent items and consumables thereby doing dual service of limiting daily consumables and number of permanent magic items used & worn. Limiting consumables limits out of combat healing which hopefully reduced the full hitpoint for every encounter syndrome.

Using Resonance to limit permanent items and to activate item powers that would otherwise be X daily use, seems to be reasonable, but for consumables such as wand/staffs with charges, Potions, and Scrolls the use of Resonance seems to break the suspension of disbelief revealing itself as a rule mechanism to limit daily item use.

If the real problem is unlimited cheap healing then the fix should target that issue. Healing needs to have a daily limit mechanism. Resonance does that, but with an overly broad fix.

For a more focused fix, look at Magical healing, it forces the body to heal quickly. It’s easy to imagine the process of forced healing causing stress to the body and that repeated forced healings within a day could have a negative effect.

A more narrowly targeted mechanism at limiting healing could work by allowing a character to be healed a number of times per day equal to their Fortitude without penalty. The source (spell, potion, scroll …) or level of the healing doesn’t matter. Once they exceed their Fortitude value the PC would take the Fatigue condition equal to the overage until they get an overnight rest. If an element of luck is preferred, the overage mechanic from Resonance could be applied to healing overage to determine if you get fatigued (flat DC10 roll, with the DC modified by the overage.). In any case, healing would still work regardless of the roll.

Resonance mechanic would still be used for permanent item limits and activate item powers, replacing the item slot mechanism and daily uses for individual item powers. Consumables would work without Resonance.

While the results it does return seem to be repeatable. It fails to find all matching results. This has happened several times over different days. I don’t believe it has been working correctly since the site update.

#6–05: Slave Ships of Absalom

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1-5.

The metropolis of Absalom promotes commerce in its many forms, and although slavery is legal, it is increasingly common for citizens to frown on the institution. The practice becomes more questionable when an ally of the Pathfinder Society traces an attempt at supernatural surveillance through a slave. Sent as independent sleuths, the PCs must track down the source of this espionage, which takes them deep into underbelly of one of Absalom’s darkest industries.

Content in “Slave Ships of Absalom” also contributes directly to the ongoing storylines of the Liberty’s Edge and Sovereign Court factions.

Question about the area affected by wall of fire and Loathsome Veil spells.
(There may be more spells like these.)

Case 1: Does the spell only affect the rectangle area perpendicular to the wall segment.

or

Case 2: The spell affects the rectangle area perpendicular to the wall segment and extends beyond both the wall's end points to the range of the effect. Effectively adding a quarter pie shaped area to both side of the center rectangle.

1 person marked this as FAQ candidate.

Can a Magus use Spellstirke to deliver a touch spell from an item.

In this case they have crafted a wondrous item for casting shocking grasp at 3rd level.

Now he isn't use the Spell Combat ability, just activating the item and using the Spellstirke ability in place of the touch attack. Is this a valid use of the ability?
