I am sure the guild will be update to reflect the change. That guild is not maintained by Paizo.

I think your 5th appears based on a manual process, which would mean the person in charge of flipping the switch hasn’t flipped it. Everything from 0-4 is automated. If I recall old blog posts correctly.

Maybe it should be automatic but I have 2 novas but only one appears.

Dude. Take a chill pill. As Hilary said, there is only one Alex. He will get back to you when he can.

What is it that you MUST have now that you feel it is ok to be demanding?

Alex will figure it out. But he needs more time than two fricking hours.

Please, let's keep the debate on masks away from this?

You will use your same PFS number you used before. That has not changed or gone away. You will simply create a 2nd ed character. Those characters will start with 2000, so your first character will be 2001.

My opinion is that if you're going to be a Society organizer for a store on an ongoing basis, you will find it convenient to have all past and future games listed under a single Event, but you should talk to your Venture Captain and follow the standard operating procedure established in your area.

Keep in mind that event has different meanings on the Paizo website than on Warhorn. On Warhorn, you will have multiple events because each table is an event. But for Paizo, an event is simply a way to report tables, which is VITAL. All tables need to be reported on the Paizo website.

The advantage of posting tables on Warhorn is greater visibility. A lot of people know about Warhorn and use it find tables. This is likely why the VC asked for your tables to posted there. With all the open gaming license happenings, more and more players are looking at 2e with fresh eyes.

Talk with your VC. Helping to organize is what we are here to do. Your VC should be there to help you walk through this process.

Once you understand how Warhorn works, it is a great way to keep advertise your tables.

Bumping this again the the hope that Alex or someone else can answer. I have GM credit on Threshold of Knowledge but when I try to access the "Across the Threshold" boon, it says the character does not qualify.

When will this be fixed?

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

No knownthe exact wording on the boon, I think the language likely allows you to do it without owning the book.

It will work as described in Galatic Magic.

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

That is kind of how I am reading it. Wish they would have been more specific in their wording.

Thanks.

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

How does this item work? Do we get it for free or is there a cost to be paid, either up front or over the course of adventures?

QUESTION FIVE: Will there be any more bounties published before Quests start on April 2023, or will there be a slight gap where we need to reuse the bounties and quests we already have?
For those that may not know, Bounties are categorized as Standalone Adventures. I believe Pathfinder Bounty #21: Against the Unliving is the last, and releases this month. The Quests are true Organized Play products. The next is in April as the blog says. There will be a gap. There are many sanctioned adventures of various lengths in the Standalone Adventures category. Crown of the Kobold King might be great to play in small bites for 18 weeks?

A'aron (sorry had to! Lolol), it is difficult for those scheduling to get a consistent group of players over 18 weeks. So while I appreciate the comment, from my stand point, it is not practical.

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

You can't trade pfs2 boons folks. Those are locked to the pfs number.

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

Congrats to the new 5 glyph GM! Thank you for all of your hard work.

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

The current language does not allow going down on in rarity.

But each level is called out separately so could a chapter could have one of each.

My earlier post was incorrect about using the boon multiple times for the same rarity.

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

1 person marked this as a favorite.

To help provide clarity. Since you no long have access to the item, you can't use the bequesthal boon again on that item.

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

That is correct. However the specific item in question can only be bequeathed once.

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

Being legal for play and gaining access are two different things under 2e.

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

I think that access will be gained from a scenario, much like the skelaton anstrey was add by an adventure. Well ACP but and adventure opened the way.

You read the boon, generally things only apply to the character in question unless specifically labeled otherwise.

Peeking at my Extinction Curse #1 chronicle sheet, everything on there only applies to the character you've applied the sheet to.

Might I recommend peeking at the Bequeathal Boon on the ACP shop. It can help you move boons around to the characters you want them on.

Wait, I have to apply ALL of the boons from one sheet to one character? I can't say, apply Snare Training to a non-caster character that utilizes snares and Expanded Summoning to a different character that happens to be a spellcaster?

Much like 1e, unless the wording allows for any of your characters to gain it, only the assigned character gains the boon.

As pointed out, there are ways to transfer a specific boon or item to another character with ACP. That is new for 2e and a welcome benefit.

Keep in mind that the android feats are locked behind the ancestry.

Ravingdork, What do you believ a character should earn on a partime job?

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

Thank you all for helping to close the loop! I knew there was another part but was too tired to go look for it.

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

Ravingdork,

Ever since you became active on the forums, you have asked some very insightful questions, both in organized play and in the larger rules area.

Please don't stop, I am sure you will not, but please watch the tone of your comments and responses.

I know I have to do the same.

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

You have never played at my table.

Maybe it is something that started in your small group and now you believe it is the rules.

Clearly it is not. You have had a VC and a RVC tell you otherwise.

Do what you will. It will have no impact on me or PFS as a whole.

But it is still wrong.

And I am waiting for your cite on allowing downtime days to be banked. After all, if it is not written. It is not a rule.

Right?

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

Yes, you get 108 days total. But you have to complete the downtime activities in blocks of 4 xp and 8 days. Best to think of it as 3 normal adventures and complete the download accordingly.

The reason for doing it blocks of 4xp is because you could level up in the middle and that will change the DCs.

That's all well and good. Thank you for the clarification. However, I'd still like to see a source or citation. A rule that is not written and cannot be referenced is no rule at all.

I will pass along what you've said to the GMs in question, and I trust they will take corrective action and/or reach out to you on their own without my needing to give up any names.

It is in the Guide. But fine, here is the link:Guide on Downtime

So it is pretty clear.

Guide wrote:
Downtime is spent in Downtime Units of up to 8 days at a time. If a character earns 8 days or fewer of downtime, it is spent in a single unit. If they earn more than 8 days, the character spends units of 8 days, one at a time, until 8 or fewer days remain, then spends the remaining days as a single unit. Multiple different activities can occur in a single downtime unit, but you can only ever roll once for a given activity in any given unit.

No where does it say anything about "banking". But your question was related to crafting. Let's see what the Guide has on that. It is just a few lines lower.

Guide wrote:
A few other limitations on crafting:

    [1]Characters can Craft uncommon or rare items only if they have access to the applicable formulas.
    [2]Crafting requires that you spend 4 days in preparation before making Crafting checks.
    [3]Crafting tasks can be continued across as many Downtime days/units as necessary to complete the item.
    [4]Characters may stop crafting and pay the remainder of the Price required to finish the item at any time.
    [4]Only one crafting project may be started during a Downtime Unit.

I added emphasis on the 3rd bullet.

Hopefully that helps. The Guide is dry reading, but if you are going to be GMing, you need to understand what is in it.

I hope you will reach out to your players from your AP and help them get the downtime activities taken care and use up the "bank" of days.

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

Yes, that looks correct. You also need to take care of downtime actives in the same manner, handled in the same 4xp blocks. So in your case, you would 16 days at level 2 and 8 days at level 3 for book 1 of the AP. Same process for the other two books.

Hope that makes sense.

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

The procedure now is that the player handles the downtime activities.

"Banking" is not sanctioned and I would like to who is doing this. It is outside the Guide and needs to stop now.

The GM(s) need to speak to a VC or RVC to get the process correct. And the players need to their downtime taken care of ASAP.

Players have to take care of download between adventures. A character earns days of downtime equal the experienced earned, plus 50% if field commissioned. So 8 or 12.

Downtime activities are done in blocks of 8 days. If rolling for income, roll 8 days, and then 4 day for field commission. For crafting, do setup, then roll for the remaining days, still in 8 day block.

I think there may be confusion on crafting. If you are crafting something and you earn an amount towards the item, at the end of the days of crafting, the character can choose to pay the remaining amount of what is being crafted, thus finishing it. Or they can continue to work on it after the next adventure when new set of downtime days has been earned. So what is being banked is the days of crafting already put into item, not banking days for use later.

It has been a while and I have been unable to find if the issue was finally resolved.

GMs cannot currently download chronicle boons for scenarios they run

Has this been resolved yet? Have a few boons I would like to get but the sytem is not allowing. Specifically the Planar Anomaly from Skitter Warp.

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

The character I would like to be put into the running has 3 reporting errors. Three of the tables were reported with the wrong faction. I assume if I send an email to the error reporting email that I can get that fixed?

Or should I plan to play the character 3 more times before the deadline?

Also, can a play have more than one character for consideration? I didn't see anything about that but I could have missed it.

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

I agree. It is time to deliver on John Compton's promise.

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

Send an email to orgplayreportingerrors[at]paizo[dot]com. Alex should be able to help.

Make sure to include your original number as well as the number on the chronicle.

Also, if you know who reported the session, you can ask them to change the Player ID.

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

As noted in the product page, the Max credits section has level 9-10 and 11-12. The credits earned appears to be correct for a 5 to 8 adventure.

Would like confirmation of this if possible.

That being said, if anybody purchases their hobgoblin/catfolk/fetchling boon between now and August without knowing about the change, I'm happy to refund the difference if they email orgplayreportingerrors[at]paizo[dot]com requesting it.

This question does not appear to be specific to society play so i am flagging it to be mive to the rules part of the forum.

I have answer to the question asked.

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

Right now there is no alternative to gain that checkmark. Maybe Alex will come on and say that the box can be check without playing.

That said, I play a fairly regular ACG game a couple of times a month on Talbetop Simulator.

If interested in playing a game online, send me a message and I can see that I can do for you.

I konw there are a fair number of online tables being played of ACG.

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

It is a little taboo to talk about where someone can find a specific boon.

This said, i know of no replay boon.

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

Ok I understand now.

I dont think the intent was to have 2 basic hirelings.

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

Ok i don't think you can because i am pretty sure they share the same prerequisites. That is where the restriction is. It is not on the name of boon.

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

You are not reading the full text of the boon. You included it in your original post.

Mark of Leadership wrote:
When you select this boon, it does not apply to your current character. Instead, select one of your Starfinder Society characters with 0 XP. The character can select one additional active boon during any session. A character cannot select multiples of the same boon in this way, and cannot select an ally boon that matches the prerequisite of an already slotted boon. For example, you cannot slot both an Elite Hireling and Professional Hireling with this ability, though you could slot a Digital Imp and a Professional Hireling.

{emphasis mine}

Since all Hirelings boons start with Basic Hireling, all the upgrades have Basis Hireling as their prerequisite.

The intent was to not have two active Hireling Allies.

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

The challenge is that retraining is in 2e. There is no built-in training in Starfinder.

I have no opinion on the suggestion.

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