Thanks for asking but as I much as would like to play, I really shouldn't. Real life hasn't been kind lately and its all I can do keep up with the games I'm currently playing. To be honest I don't think I'm doing them justice.

I would really like to play, just don't have the time now.

Again Thank you

"Evergreen" is PFS slang for an adventure that can always be played for PFS credit. A player can play an "Evergreen" over and over and over again, and as long as each time is with a different character that character will receive PFS credit.

I think there is currently only one evergreen for characters above first level. There are four PFS scenarios for first level currently classified as evergreen, and one scenario length module evergreen. There are also some longer modules and part of an adventure path or two that are classified as evergreen for first level play.

As for the term "Standard" that refers to the "Standard" or "Classic" PFS campaign which allows a huge number of character options from a large number of paizo source books. This is different than the "Core" PFS campaign which is primarily limited to the Core Pathfinder Rule book.

There was a girl named Starshine Moonflower Smith who lived about a block away from me when I was in high school. She was a few years younger than me so I didn't know her very well, but she seemed pleasant enough.

What was really remarkable, even after all this time, is how that was in rural Ohio, in fact one of the poorest, most "red necked" regions you could find in the state at time. Nobody had a name anything like hers at all. Her name made her (or at least her parents) really stand out.


Its been a while since I've been to the Steve Jackson Games webstite but there should be a free pdf called GURPS LITE available for download. It will have all the basic rules you need for pc creation and give the basics of how GURPS works. Be sure to grab the 4th edition rules because the 3rd is still real popular and tbe 3rd edition of GURPS LITE is still avaiable too.


Nefreet, you posted 2 seconds after but I admit providing a link makes yours the better post.

ChinnySage, I forgot to say Welcome to PFS! Don't be afraid to post questions we're a friendly bunch.

Somewhere along the way the name got changed to "Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide". Its free goto and there is a link to it under the name "Roleplaing Guild Guide".

Gallows of Madness is replayable for credit as long as you only use level one characters each time, just like Crpyt of the Ever Flame and a few other things.

I've no problem playing Core, although I've only have one Core character built at the moment and he's in consideration for another game right now. So I'll probably have to build another one.

Top three choices

1)Cleric of Desna, with travel and luck domains, most likely a dwarf

2)Human fighter who uses a great sword.

3)Dwarven Monk, no seriously just a Dwarven Monk.

-Bani- Welcome to PFS! ... Er I was going to write something else as well but have completely loss my train of thought ... so umm ... Yes, Welcome and not just because I won't have to play an arcane spell caster.

Odds are good there will be an overwhelming response to your post. Just a few weeks ago there was a CotCT recruitment that ended with I think 20+ people not bing selected so there is definite interest there. As for Way of the Wicked, while it's not for everyone there's usually a good number of folks interested in that as well.

For myself I'd like to see another run of CotCT.

Thanks in advance for running a game!

Yes, I was hoping for a chance to play these one and just missed the chance to play in this the last time someone offered to run it here on the boards. I could play it either standard or core.

I've not played 5e before but this does look intresting. I should be able to get a character together tomarrow.

Hi, welcome to the ranks of PFS GMs. I don't have any pcs in tier that are free at that moment, long story -serously long story, and while I could create a new level one character I prefer to play level one in repeatable sceneros.

I wanted to thank you for GMing and suggest you PM Hmm aka GMHmm she's the PbP Venture Officer for PFS, she's at a con this weekend, as are a number of the other regular posters on these boards, but she can help you get set up so everything goes well.

She just posted a survey in the Flaxseed Lodge disscussion thread and posting there would probably get her attention pretty quickly, as well as a number of other experienced PbP GMs (Not me I've only GM'd home games years ago- see long story above).

Good Luck, hope to game with you in the future.

Hmm, both links under lodges direct to the same website - Flaxseed.

I don't think anyone's posted anything yet that qualifies him or her as a jerk. I do think that if someone were to sit down at a table and tried to pursue this "shenanigan" in face of the discomfort of the other players, that would make that person a jerk.

So far this just seems to be one of those speculative conversations that people have when someone wonders if an idea would work or not.

So to sum up,

1) Most people seem to think that according to the rules it won't work.

2) Even if it did work it won't be permitted in PFS play because:

a. Most people see it as evil.

b. It would make enough before uncomfortable enough that trying it would be a jerk like move.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

There's another PFS rule to consider here, even if I don't remember exactly where it's at: Don't be a Jerk.

Even if you could successfully argue your way around the does it mechanically work?, and is it evil? questions you still have to deal with the fact that most people are going to be at the very least uncomfortable and most likely offended by it.

I can't be alone in saying that an attempt to do this at a game day at a FLGS or a Con would probably ruin my experience for that session if not the whole day. If I had my kids with me, as I almost always do when playing PFS, I would take them and leave if someone brought this up at the table we were playing at in anything but a light hearted, what if manner that was quickly dropped.

In short don't be a jerk. This idea seriously offends the average person.

Sun. Morning GenCon

GM "Hi, I'm a 4 star GM and this is my 8th time Gming this con, but only the 3rd time this scenario - at least 1 one of those groups didn't TPK"

Seconds later

GM "Alright, I need to know if anybody has Evasion, (thing no one at table knows about), (thing on one at the table knows about), (thing no one at the table knows about), basically anything that's always on and might help your PCs survive."

A couple of hours later as the party is getting mauled in "easy encounter"

GM (with dawning horror) "Wait how long have you been playing Pathfinder?"

Player 1 "Two months"
Player 2 "The same"
Player 3 Mute, dazed stare
Player 4 (hiding on floor under table)"Meep"
Player 5 "I started here at GenCon on Thurs. night"
Player 6 No answer stares off into the distance

I've got a dwarf who is a classic axe and shield fighter type that just needs a few finishing touches for PBP use (haven't done the stat line yet), or I could create a traditional support type cleric (Luck and Travel domains, or Luck and Good).

I could do either, but like I said the fighter is almost ready to go.



So Instead of sleeping I've been doing crunch (I almost always do the crunch first) and I have a few questions.

1)Are you using background skills? It seems to be fairly common to use background skills these days.

2)Can I take the Light against Darkness alternate race trait for elves from Horror Adventures?

3)Is the Treerazer's Bane trait (Inner Sea Primer and Elves of Glorian) ok instead of one of the campaign traits you listed?

4)Is 3000 gold the wealth level you want to see new PC's built at?



I claim lack of sleep, I just reread the recruitment post and saw that you are using background sleep -er background skills... maybe I should head oft to bed after all.

A Luck Domain Cleric with a high initiative score
Melee with multiple attacks a round
Ranged with multiple attacks a round
Arcane caster with a nice set of knowledge skills
A skill monkey
A face character

Many years ago in an attempt to get our rather large group (I think there where 10 of us) to focus more on role playing then roll playing. We decided to co DM a 2nd edition AD&D campaign where we would tell the players none of the hard numbers. The players didn't even know their ability scores in the beginning.

It worked really well at first and the players all really got into their characters heads. The players really did role play their characters' history's and motivation. It produced some of the best pure role playing I've ever seen first hand. Still, despite it doing exactly what we hoped it would, it became to much of a hassle to keep it up for the whole campaign. I believe by the third or forth session we went back to the standard format for playing.

So... your experience may vary. Try for a session or two, if your players like it and you can handle the extra work, great. If not, stop it and move on. After all we're all playing the game to have fun.

I vaguely remember there was a way to construct one, maybe hero labs? I'm sure I saw stats for it.

Two and a half to three years ago my wife got the gnomes book and for while she pitched gnome chacthers over and over for our games. Many, many, many gnome characters

Sorry I don't have any fresher memories. (And I may have surpressed a few, ... so many gnomes ...)

I am putting forth for consideration Bridgette Theindotter human cleric of Ragathiel. She is a martial submission and will be alternating levels of fighter and barbarian with her cleric levels until she has 2 levels of fighter and 3 levels of barbarian.

Crunch is done but as I am at work, I won't be posting it until later today or tonight. I'll be creating an alias for Bridgette then as well some more background.

Bridgette's testimony:
Rage, all consuming, all powerful, an inferno ready to consume me and everything around me. As a child, I constantly stuffed it down into some dark place in my mind where it compressed and churned away. It was always there lurking under the surface waiting for a chance to erupt like a volcano, out of control, sweeping away everything and everyone around me.

One day, which I confess was probably my darkest day, as I lay broken and dying in a trash heap, my rage broke loose. I screamed, railing against not only the wrongs that had been done to me, but the wrongs that had been done to others. I cried out against the darkness, against the wicked. I wept in frustration not just about my fate but the fate of the lost and innocent in this dark place. As I shouted out against the injustice that was so prevalent in this life I heard a voice.

“That I can use, and show you to use.”

That is how I came to follow my lord, the Lord of Rage and Justice Ragathiel.

Some background notes:
Bridgette Thiendotter is a 21 year old human female of Ulfen descent. Five Feet and zero inches tall she is only one hundred pounds in weight. She has platinum blond hair and ice cold blue eys. She wears her hair shoulder length down when relaxing or in braids when expecting battle or adventure. She has a thin, old, white scar running down her right check. She doesn't talk about where it is from.

She has a very evident fondness for sweets (in particular chocolate). She can always be found carrying a book of some kind or another (mostly religious writings or lurid romance fiction – the first she will admit to, the second not so much). She never sits with her back to a door or a window unless she is planning a quick escape from a room. She almost always sleeps naked unless pressing need dictates otherwise. She calls her bastard sword ‘Rosie’ and talks to it about her day when she thinks no one is looking.

Are you going to be using background skills? What about traits and drawbacks?

Oh and dot.

Thanks again for the help. I've never used Humble Bundle and thought the keys would be emailed to me.

Hello, again

Did you get my email? I did send it just before, or maybe even during the whole mess with the website trouble so maybe you didn't get it.

In it I copied and pasted the email I got sent when I purchased the Humble Bundle. I also mentioned that after I read a few more the customer service threads I had come to the conclusion that my email didn't actually have any activation keys in it.

If you want me to send a new email, or need anything else from me let me know.


Dot ...

I have to admit I am a crunch first then background type about 90% of the time... altough I do have an idea for a cleric that ... you know what I will back later ... (mumbles to self barbarian cleric warpriest ...err)

Am I missing something? I bought the Humble Bundle shortly before going to bed yesterday and then tried to active the key that was is in my receipt email. It didn't work.

I didn't have much time to figure it out so I went to bed then got up, went to my job, came home and tried again. It is still not working. I keep getting the same message "That code is not recognized."

Am I doing something wrong? I don't see in anything in my email that says activation key just this "Humble RPG Book Bundle: Pathfinder Worldscape presented by Paizo and Dynamite (order id"

I left off the part that looks like an activation key.

I'm I missing something or just doing something wrong?

Two questions:

1)The player's guide says the Giantslayers trait from Rise of the Runelords would be a good choice as a campaign trait if the GM appoves it, so do you?

2)Should we use PFS starting gold (150gp) or something else?

Stat Rolls:
4d6 ⇒ (6, 5, 5, 1) = 17
4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 4, 3) = 16
4d6 ⇒ (1, 3, 2, 6) = 12
4d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 6, 1) = 16
4d6 ⇒ (4, 2, 6, 1) = 13
4d6 ⇒ (1, 4, 2, 1) = 8

1d6 ⇒ 1
1d6 ⇒ 6 6,5,6 =17

3,6,4 =13

2d6 ⇒ (3, 6) = 9 6,6,3 =15

1d6 ⇒ 6 6,6,6 =18

6d6 ⇒ (5, 2, 2, 2, 1, 6) = 18 6,5,6 =17

5d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 5, 2, 6) = 19 4,5,6=17

If I've done this right,(rerolling every time I get a 1, or 2), that gives me: 17,13,15,18,17,17 to work with.

That doesn't seem right ... but if it is ... wow

2nd level hit points, Fighter: 1d10 ⇒ 8

Let's see what I can do with this ...

I don't know of any play by email games going on, if there were it wouldn't surprise me, but there are a lot of play by post (PBP) games going on both here on the Paizo boards and over on Myth Weavers.

Take a look at Online Campaigns General Discussion board for a better place to learn about PBP.

Here you can find where a lot of GMs start looking for players for their games Recruitment.

Good Luck and I hope you have fun!


I have a 2nd level ranger I am submitting. Profile will be posted soon.

I have a 1st level cleric or 2nd level ranger if there is still room.

I would appreciate a copy the next time you send it out, thank you.

The only way to make the highlander movies/tv shows to make any sense in a bigger picture is start with the first movie and go foward. Everytime you come across something you can't explain in terms of what has gone before means you've cross into a new universe where the rules are slightly different and the past may not be what you thought it was.

If you are going to game in the highlander universe, you've got to define which highlander universe you're going to game in.

As for game systems to use, years ago I saw decent write ups for both Gurps 3rd edition and World of Darkness for Highlander. I never got to play either one but both looked like they would have worked well.

I keep wanting to jump in and help and have to keep reminding myself that Belor's not there.

This was the AP I voted for in your survey. So I'm thrilled to see you decide to run it, but I just kicked off my first online campaign as a GM and I'm afraid I won't have the time for it now. Once I get my firmly under me sure, but not right now. Still thank you for running this.

Didn't mean to hijack the thread, so to get it back on track I would love to play a non core race and non core class combo, something against type, like an orc samurai or maybe a kobold ninja.

Hmmn you be right, still I did approve a were tiger I forgot to mention, her player decided to play the assimar instead, so maybe I can be forgiven for forgetting her.

I can see why people want to play the "newer stuff" and I enjoy seeing it in PFS play. I probably would enjoy it in the proper homebrew setting as well. However when I started my own homebrew recruitment here, just before Christmas, I excluded Summonners, Alchemists, and Gunslingers because I have been developing that setting off and on for more than 20 years. I have specific reasons for excluding those classes that have nothing to do with their newness or power level but are campaign driven. I in fact opened up the campaign to non standard races and the play test classes. I've had a few peoples submit play test class characters but haven't gotten any non core race submissions except for 1 assimar. Where are all the Drow noble ninja? The pixie cavaliers and the cat folk samurai are missing too sadly.

Just for sake of completeness I never posted in the inn with my character either Chants to Dawn. No worries though I decided to run my own game. Not Kingmaker but I hope to have fun.


Good luck and congratulations

Your Majesty Amber, Chants To Dawn volunteers to run those pesky, inconvient, and borring duties for you, you know things like, courts, prisons, tax collectors, and schools if he can institute trial by combat, and capital punishment for overdue library books.
