Are you sure you aren't thinking of a different card?

Display this card. While displayed, for your combat check, you may use your Strength, Dexterity, or Survival skill + 1d6 plus the scenario's adventure deck number and add the Melee and Slashing traits; you may additionally discard another card to add another 1d6 and the Animal trait.

That sure sounds like you're determining the skill you are using for your combat check.

Yup. I was thinking of the other aspect spells that didn't determine checks. My bad.

Attempting to log into Paizo resulted in a Google message stating that the Paizo site's information has recently been breached.

I did the scorched earth method and deleted all my cookies, passwords and the whole cache. I also reset my password. That was a bit more work than anticipated, but better safe than sorry.

My only worry at this point: has our personal information been compromised on the Paizo site?

I would appreciate a confirmation on this.

Best regards,

I'm guessing that what you probably got was a message that the password you used was previously used on a website that had their security breached. See this info about the feature in Chrome, but Google is basically taking the encrypted password you enter on Paizo's site and checking known data breaches to see if that password was ever compromised. This article has pictures of what the alerts look like to see if they match what you saw.

In short, it doesn't mean Paizo's site was compromised, it is a warning that that password you used might not be safe to use since hackers may have already obtained it.

I believe you are thinking of Lady Despair.

WHEN THIS IS THE HOUR

On your turn, if you would suffer a scourge, a random local character suffers it instead.

This instruction is not impossible. Instead of it automatically being you, it is randomly selected from the 1 local character at your location: you.

You have to pay attention to how it is phrased. If you are at a location alone, you are the only local character. That means "another local character" is impossible, but "a random local character" or "all local characters" are not impossible.

So, for example, Ratling....

Ratling wrote:
Before acting, another local character summons and encounters this monster.

If you are the only local character, there is not another local character. So no one does the summoning.

I haven't used it yet, but the situation that immediately came to mind for me was all the times I'd played a caster and taken one of the "movement" cards and we'd play a scenario with only 1 location or that didn't allow movement or a siege scenario where movement wasn't very valuable. I'd have gladly swapped that movement spell out for something else during those scenarios.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

That's a pretty good sounding argument to me.

When it was working, did you happen to notice if on that page you are signed in or not? Look in the upper right? Does it say "My Account" or "Sign In"?

I've got a group of 3 that finished Dragon's Demand and are going to run Night at Bloodthorne Manor at tier 4. We are looking to recruit one more player.

Post here if you are interested in joining.

We are looking for one more player to join us for Night at Bloodthorne Manor at tier 4. I'll open recruitment for 48 hours and then randomly choose from those interested in joining us. Post here if you are interested.

See these instructions. I'm not sure that is the issue with your order, but I'm guessing it is. You have to pay for the shipping. On the redemption page, scroll down and look for a place to submit the order. I hope that helps.

Y'know- tryin' not to come across too much like a "conspiracy-theory" sorta type, but there was this older Paizocon or Gencon(?) seminar about the Pathfinder Adventure Card-game over on Know Direction where it was mentioned that part of its' genesis involved a Weird Western Horror-type rpg game inspiration deal (that fell thru) which ended up becoming the PF Adventure Card game featuring adaptations like RotRL. ;)

Mebbe since the PF ACG character iconics haz different dice as stats, that can kinda serve as inspiration for Savage Worlds adaptations? ;)

I believe that was what eventually became the game Apochrypha which was actually printed in 2017.

Clearing cache and cookies only resolves it for me until I log in again. Once I'm logged in, a hand full of pages give the 500 error. However, once I'm on a page giving the 500 error, if I navigate to any other "broken" pages, they load, but I notice the site is treating me like I'm not logged in (the header has a link to Sign In instead of My Account).

I thought that with Steam, your saved games are synched into the cloud. I haven't tried it with Pathfinder: Kingmaker, but with other Steam games i have I can play them on one computer and then later play them on another computer and pick up at the save point from the first computer.

That doesn't help you get back your DLC, but it would mean that if accurate, you don't risk losing your saved games.

So my shipment was separated into two shipments and instead of getting the AP modules for PF and SF, my second shipment was another copy of the PF AP. How do I go about getting the SF AP?

You should start a new thread in the customer service forum outlining your issue. That way CS reps will be sure to see it.

Awesome. Thanks so much for putting these up. I've ordered a set and also caught up on all the other things I needed from DriveThru now.

And good to see you Vic.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

I'm getting this as well. I notice I get it on these pages:

Home page
https://paizo.com/

Pathfinder > Beginner Box
https://paizo.com/pathfinder/beginnerbox

FAQ
https://paizo.com/pathfinder/faq

What I've discovered though is that I appear to be signed out on those pages. Instead of saying "My Account" in the upper right, it says "Sign In." And also, once I'm in that "broken" section of the website, those pages all load without error if I jump between them. For example, if I go to the Pathfinder menu and choose Beginner Box, I get a 500 error in the lower part of the page. But if I then click the Purple Golem to go to home page, I can see the home page. And from the now working homepage, if I go the Pathfinder menu and choose Beginner Box, I can see the Beginner Box page. I'm still not appearing as signed in on any of them, and if I go to a "working" section of the site and back to the home page, it shows the 500 error again.

I have no idea if that is helpful at all, but thought I share in case it was.

When can we actually see this errata? I get that Ysoki mechanic every time I try to look it up. And I have used three different browsers on two different computers.

It works for me only in Incognito mode. I also notice that if I'm not using Incognito mode, the FAQ page says "Sign In" instead of the expected "My Account" when I'm already signed in.

I personally had played that if the very top card of the hourglass wasn't a blessing, then you couldn't close or guard the location. However, on reading this thread and discussing it with others, I'm thinking I was wrong and instead I should have been find the next blessing of the hourglass.

I will say, however, that I've essentially played it as "encounter and acquire". I think "summon and acquire" was avoided the card is technically in use already and the intent isn't for you to pretend like you have a copy of it.

Oh. Looks like you've wandered into the card game rules forum when you were probably looking for the RPG rules forum. I've flagged your post to get moved to the right forum (I'm guessing Pathfinder First Edition, right?). In the mean time, maybe consider playing the card game? It has fighters and monks too. And you can play it on your table, in Table Top Simulator, or via Play By Post. Though, I don't know of any characters in the card game with detachable hands. Celeste doesn't have hands at all, so I guess that is close.

You can go a little further and say it is "Found In" and search for Dungeon. If you drop the WotC from Joana's filter, you can find 5 adventures, since one of them is published by Paizo in Dungeon #109.

And I want to highlight this post for its amazing proficiency in handling the game state. Its one thing to roll to randomize the cards for your exploration. And once you are familiar with pbp, you can manage to account for the fact that not all the cards listed in the BR's post for the location are there any more. But in this situation Kiya Toren as Radovan managed to explore randomly, account for a card that was shuffled into the location, and account for that fact that card could either be one of the proxies or a random blessing, and also determine what random blessing it was when she ended up encountering that very card. I've used this post twice in the time since then to show new players how to manage the game state without needing the box runner to post an update (though also telling them they can always ask for an update if they want). In terms of "PBP skills" this post just takes the cake for me.

I'll start things off by mentioning my privilege of having Redgar play at a table I've been running for a long time. He definitely gets into the spirit of being Lem. Here is just one example of his "typical" turns. I always look forward to getting to read his posts when I'm updating the game.


We want to start using this thread as a way to share great pbp moments (be they stories of success or failure). You can recount something that happened in a game you were involved in. Bonus points if you do it in character, though that isn't required. And if you want to include a link to the great event, even better. So let the sharing begin.


BR Boon rolls
1d20 ⇒ 18
1d20 ⇒ 16
1d20 ⇒ 14


A couple of notes about pbp. Generally, we expect everyone to try and post once per day, but definitely with in 24 hours of when it becomes your turn. Exceptions are totally fine for extenuating circumstances. Just do your best to notify the group if you won't be available for some reason.

A few things to note the sometimes come up, on each page of any of thread on Paizo's site, each post hast to be unique. So, if on page 1 of the campaign thread someone posts "I'll start at the cavern." no one else can make that same post. That includes die rolls. You simply be shown a preview of your post, but it won't actually submit. (This is some kind of anti-spam measure). The easiest way to make your post unique is to just throw your name into it somewhere. "Seoni will start at the cavern." for instance.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

For those of you new to PBP, if you make a quick post (like the ones above) in the Gameplay thread, this campaign should show up in your campaigns.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Ok. So, it is going to be the four of us. Let me know what character you will be playing. I'll start setting things up and hopefully we can take our first turn tomorrow. I'll be sending you each a private message to setup either a discord chat or a google hangout for communication purposes.


This will be our gameplay thread.

I'm recruiting for a Dragon's Demand game, geared towards those new to PBP. I've got 2 open seats. This is the recruitment thread.

I'm starting a new game of the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game the Dragon's Demand for play by post. This will be specifically geared for those that are new to PBP. If anyone is interested, I have 2 open seats (2 players have already expressed interest. Post in this thread in the next 48 hours if interested. Priority for those new to PBP. I'll select randomly if more than 2 people are interested.

I always felt like the wording on Five-Pointed Sun was to try and avoid the questions that arose with Angel in the Towre in RotR. i.e. it was trying to care about the absolute end of the turn.

He's officially out now. But I don't think there is any way to get physical cards other than making them yourself from the images in the blog.

So, I think I'd still play it at as only the power only applies to the commander.

Well that is a bit of a pickle. I would have assumed this was a quick "No, when commanding powers only apply when you are the one commanding the ship." However, the rulebook says...

S&S Rulebook p22 wrote:
When Commanding This Ship: If the ship belongs to your party, this power is in effect during your turn (see Ships and Plunder on page 17).

That gives me some pause. It does however include a citation back to page 17, where the rules about how to know if you are commanding ship are listed. Which makes me think maybe it still is meant to be taken at face value. And if I was playing a game right now and had to choose, that is still what I'd choose, that they only apply when you are the commander. But there is some doubt in my mind.

While we wonder, I'll add that the relevant powers for 5-5E are:

5-5E wrote:

Your ship is the Apparatus of the Octopus, which is anchored at Raker Shoals. You cannot command any other ship. At the start of the scenario, your ship is wrecked.

At the start of your turn, succeed at a Strength, Melee, Constitution, or Fortitude 11 check or move to a random other location then roll 1d4:
1. Your ship is dealt 1d4 Structural damage.
2. You are dealt 1d4 Combat damage.
3. Discard a random card.
4. Bury a random card from your discard pile.
Apparatus of the Octopus wrecked side wrote:
When Commanding This Ship When you discard cards for structural damage, they must be either spells or discarded at random.

So, I assume the specific question is: If you fail the start of turn check and move randomly to another location, and then roll a 1 so your ship is dealt 1d4 structural damage, do you have to discard spells or random cards for the damage?


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Both issues have been corrected now. I'm also working on a slightly different format as we speak. Not sure if it will work. I'll post here if it does.

Ok. Found some time to quickly update them. I've moved them to a folder with all the little PACG projects I've made.

Here is the whole folder.
And Here is the adventurer's packs in particular.

If you find any mistakes, let me know.

I think I made those inserts. Let me update them. I should be able to do so tonight.

Paizo is hosting a silent auction as part of GenCon online. It runs for about 4 more hours after I'm making this post. One item in particular might interest regular readers of this forum:

The 30 day exclusivity applies to it being available to acquire (I'd say purchase, but I think Paizo gives away the PDFs for free, though I'm not sure). So, beginning on Free RPG Day and for 30 days after, the exclusive place to acquire the Free RPG Day products is at a retailer participating in Free RPG Day. After that 30 day time period expires, Paizo can make the product available on their website.

All that to say, none of that has any influence on what you do with the product once you've acquired it. The 30 day limit doesn't apply to your use.

Some of them might not be available. I'm almost certain the Mummy's Mask characters aren't.

I've personally made my own pawns. I print images on card stock, then paste them on to chipboard.

Here is the chipboard I've used in the past.

And here is a semi-recent image file of the pawns.

I think I have an update after that file though which has Drelm and others, so if you are really interested, I'll upload it.

You totally can, because, as you said, you aren't playing the card for Quinn's power and with the reveal action the card is still in you hand. With any other action to play the Sawtooth Saber, it wouldn't be in your hand anymore, but with reveal, it still is.
