Maybe that's it. My current group is painfully light on healing. We have been able to tear through pretty much everything using other methods so it hasn't been an issue, but here once those blessings and allies are gone peoples decks slow down quite a bit.
Is is just me or is this scenario really difficult? Our group failed twice, and were not even close to winning either time. We double checked the setup and I think we got that right. Am I missing something? Any tips?
Boons you acquire can be displayed next to the scenario instead of being added to your hand in order to fulfill the victory condition.
"The difficulty to acquire boons is increased by 1d4. When you
acquire a boon, you may display it next to the scenario."
Several of the Henchmen (not to mention character abilities) let you draw boons from locations (and the box!) Does drawing cards fulfill the requirement for acquiring? Normally I would guess this is a case of cards do what they say, but in this scenario my group was very divided about that.
This probably should be in the general rules forum, but there are specific consequences in this scenario that called it into questions for my players and I.
I used my Vanaran boon for the same concept. A young Monkey, sometime when he was known as Aware of Void. If you want to do a fierce Great Sage then feel free to go Strength. Monkey was STRONG. Remember that he was only offered the Golden Hooped Wishing Rod as a joke, because the Eastern Dragon King knew that there was no way he would be able to lift it. And STR would work well for a brawler. A few points in DEX is always welcome, but STR can easily be his highest stat. At that point in his life he wasn't particularly wise, so feel free to dump that down.
I just picked up Bestiary Box 5 and one of the sheets is misprinted (the sheet is the one with pawn 82 "Ghoul, Leng" through #97 "Nemhain"). Each image is about only half on the pawn. Is there any way to get a replacement for this sheet?
Like others have said, it sounds like this has been worked out already. I just wanted to add to what Steven G. said about the Paizo room from an attendee's standpoint.
I Went through most of the scenarios there and was ALWAYS signed in by a woman (who managed to recognize me and remember my name every time I came back!). I also had my 15 year old daughter with me and this was her first ever tabletop experience (she had never shown any interest at home). My daughter had a wonderful time and has decided to cosplay as Amiri the next time we go because that pregen was so inspirational to her. The GMs I played with were mostly great, and the others were at least not bad.
I am sorry your wife stumbled stumbled across one of the individuals that can make this hobby unwelcoming. That makes me very sad, but I still would encourage her to try again in the official Paizo room if she goes again. Most of my tables had a solo woman join and I never once saw them given any of this grief.
