Congrats to the fives! Thank you for all the time you have put in for players!

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

If you don't rebuild, field commission agents do get the new consumables. Pregrens also get them

Remaster is a new mindset. The sooner you accept it, the easier it will be.

Yes, but that is not what I am looking for. Upgrading the Nexus Staff of Fire to a Nexus Staff of Fire (greater) is all well and good.

How about upgrading the Nexus Staff of Fire to a Nexus Staff of Water (greater)?

I don't think you can do that. Because from my read, when a nexus staff is up graded it is no longer a nexus staff. It is the upgraded staff.

I have not thought much about this since my post in the post you linked.

Have you looked in the rules forums to see if anything about this is there? Assume you have but wanted to ask.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

I think you can upgrade the staff of fire to greater per the normal process.

Yes, if all the sage jewels are intact than all PCs will be raised.

Familiars? No. But they are easily replaceable.

Chronicles that give 12 xp, like APs and some modules, are applied in 4 xp, 8 days of downtime.

Feel free to reach out on Discord. I can jump into a voice channel to discuss more. Just let me know when.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Because the chronicle provides 12 xp, 30 tb, and 24 reputatuon, it may be necessary to issue up to 3 chronicles. This would be needed if the character having the credit to is in-between levels.

When these chronicles are applied, they need to be applied as if they were in adventures. So 4 xp at a time.

It is possible to go slow progress but it has to be for the entire chronicle. Also you can only give reputation for only 1 faction.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

I would say that missile are purchased separately.

Way to go Wally! Better have it on you because I will make you buy the drinks! Well earned.

Oh, I wasn't considering them vanities but I guess one could treat them as such.

Getting ready to run this and looked at the chronicle. With fame being removed, how can a gain the Rasheen's Footsteps boon?

Will the same ability be offered to characters who might have options available in this book and then options in Player's Core 2?

If i understand the question, we have until 2024 to do the rebuild. But there is only one rebuild. So you may have to wait until the next book is out before doing the rebuild.

You continue to not be required to do so :)

I will still have to update spells and other class features even if I sont do a rebuild. That means looking at the character from the ground up, just like I would with a rebuild. Just not as indepth.

The Treasure Bundle Insurance boon can be used to recover 3 bundles and it does not have to be used all in the same adventure. After marking the 3 boxes, you would need to purchase again.

The only real limit on boons is you can only have one advanced and one promotional boon. Another number of other boons can be "slotted".

Just make sure to have a copy of it with you. You can purchase the insurance if it is needed however. Honor system at that point that the player will do that after the fact.

The boons will have the needed information on when of how often they can be used.

First question is what event was the table part of? The event organizer is the first person you should reach out.

It is possible that the table was reported but your number was entered incorrectly..

And this is the place to come for this type of question.

PM me and I will help you get it figured out.

+1 weapons and +1 runes are 2nd level items, not 3rd, so any character can buy them if they can afford them.

You can always purchase the following items so long as you’re in a settlement of at least 5,000 residents (and scenarios might sometimes provide additional allowances or limitations):

Any common equipment in sanctioned Pathfinder content with an item level less than or equal to your character’s level (minimum 2).

Right. I always mix that up with the striking rune.

According to the rules for 2e Pathfinder Society, there is a specialist who transfer runes for free and without a check, provided that I supply any needed materials.

Having a formula that the specialist can use to Craft the rune doesn't count right? I actually need a weapon or runestone that has the rune I want to transfer? I was thinking for a moment that I could just buy the formula for a +1 weapon potency rune then have the specialist etch a new rune, but that seems like a stupidly easy way to get around the 35 gp pricetag. Too good to be true.

So if I want a +1 warhammer when I reach level 2, is it best if I just buy a +1 warhammer for 35 gp and sell my old warhammer for 5 sp?

Unless you have a +1 weapon from a chronicle. You can't get a +1 rune until 3rd level.

If you have access from chronicle, it is likely attached to a weapon that you would need to buy then transfer the rune to the Warhammer.

Either way, your going to pay for the rune

I am in the same boat. I should have 4 stars and 2 novas.

PFS Standard just means it follows the standard rules. For Uncommon items, that means you can't use it unless you gain access or a Boon. There isn't necessarily a way to access all of them.

But most Wayfinder are available to Pathfinder agents, which we all are

Same is true most aeon stones.

Heather, your Order of the Wayfinder is so deserved! Congratulations!

Congrats to the new members of Five Island! Thank you for all your hard work.

And thank you Alex and OJ Pinkerton for the honor of the campaign service coin. It was hugh surprise when OJ presented the coin during Nukecon at the 4-99 PFS special. Even bigger than the surprise of the special firing with four full tables!

I am humbled by the recognition.

The adventure lists the map incorrectly. It says Flip-Mat: Haunted Dungeons. In fact, it uses the Multi-pack Haunted Dungeons.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

It is interesting to go back to old posts with a lens of time.

No vanities for 2e.

You might want to spend some more time learning about people who are nonbinary.

Guess I show my ignorance. It is a long journey for someone who has spent the vast majority of their life in different frame of reference.

I am trying. Will I fail? At times, yes. But I am willing to try.

I have not encountered the behavior described. I am older, white guy so many I just would see it. Hard to say.

To recruit new GMs they need to feel supported and provided with timely feedback. If a new GM makes a mistake, I don't usually jump in to correct because that would be taking control of the table when I am just a player.

I provide brief feedback with lots of encouragement.

I know I will be tested soon as a VC because my lodge is looking to have an influx of new players and at least 2 players expressing the interest to GM. Both are woman and non-binary.

So I will hope to give positive feed back on my lodge in a couple of months.

Not that I remember. Our table was right next to the HQ stage next to one of the muster points.

That is where I noticed a 6 person table with all of them wearing the same shirt. Look like a fun table.

I would like to see another Convention Hero boon added to an adventure. I suggest at one adventure per season have one.

I played all 10 slots. I was able to play many of my high level PFS and SFS characters. My SFS 701, Haan Solo, made it to Seeker Level!! Oh wait, not in Starfinder. :)

All the GMs were great, and the players were outstanding.

I would like to say that I witnessed some people being approached rudely because they had brought food into the room. I understand the policy, as usual bad actors ruins it for everyone else, but the manner that people were approached was rude and "jerkish".

Signage likely would have been a big help but there was none that I saw.

If a challenge point type encounter is being done, it is likely a no.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

It is possible, just not probable.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Assuming you are taling about 2e. 1e is much more complex

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Still good advise as most people will first think a about 2e. I personally don't know the boon you are talking about and would have tried 2e.

Giving the system is common sense and will mean a faster response time.

If being helpful is not important to you, than you are good.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

That is an important table to have handy.

Woot. Can't wait to play in person at Gencon.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

Likely not helpful for 2e.

Liberty's Edge 3/5 5/5 **** Venture-Captain, Nebraska—Omaha

To expand on what Blake said, a new player will need to create a 2e character so they can select the character when they purchase the boon.

A lot of new players don't realize they need to actually make a character on the Paizo website to gain the benefits of ACP boons, or any boon for that matter.

Questions, why are the tables setup for only 5 players?

In the past there were threads to setup parties for the specials.

Who is interested doing this for this year's Gencon?

If interested, put your character class and level.

I have a 8th level mechanic or a 7th level solarian for 5-99 looking for a party
