I have a player who just popped in. Shall I let her know she's getting hasted?

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

I think it's one per table for the boon. It's in the scenario reporting notes, if I'm not mistaken.

EDIT: Nope, last sentence in Conclusion.

I personally suggest the pathbuilder2e app.

Seconded on Pathbuilder's 2e app. It's a little bit of a learning curve but it's so versatile! I love it.

Negatory, good buddy.

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

Any news on GMs getting the PDFs yet?

I GM'ed all of Doomsday Dawn. I answered the surveys, but I didn't know I could record those sessions to buy cool boons. Where would I go do to this?

You would enter it on the Your Organized Play sheet. It's just like reporting PFS, but you use -1501 for playtest character numbers.

The best way to get better at GMing is to do it. Talk to your local Venture Officer and offer your services. You'll be surprised at how fast you get better at GMing.

Like the Pathfinder pocket edition books, I love the idea, but probably will never get around to actually buying them.

Hard to rationalize spending the money on something I essentially already have, especially when phones and tablets work much better at saving weight and all our regular gaming locations have ready access to the internet.

I get this, but I'm still a physical copy sort of guy, so I relish having the actual book to leaf through. I think eventually the tide will turn so most people will embrace electronic, but today there's still enough of us bibliophiles to support.

If my sorcerer PC somehow opens the efreeti bottle and is granted three wishes and he says, "I wish to be the most powerful sorcerer in the world.", would he become sorcerer 20/archamge 10 instantly? If you are a GM and one of your players do this, what would you do? Punching him in the face? Or giving him what he wants?

I don't want to hijack the thread, but if I were GM and I felt evil, I'd immediately kill every other sorcerer in the world that's above his level.

I brought this exact idea up to Erik Mona at PaizoCon, and his reply was "That seems like a good idea for a as-yet-unannounced product, yeah." So I wouldn't be surprised if we have one (or it's at least announced) within a year.

I would imagine it's a no-brainer considering how well the 1e pocket editions did (or seemed to do). But I want to keep up the drumbeat to remind them that there's definitely interest.

I'd like to necromance this thread to life again. I am planning for GenCon and I would so love not to have to bring my big book and just bring a pocket edition with me

Pretty please?

Sovereign Court 5/5 RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

Does anyone have a good miniature selection for the Kohkleim? I'm running this at GenCon and I like to have decent representations to help in a loud climate.

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

Seconded on the Maps list, please.

More big choice scenarios, please! I LOVED Yesterday's Truth and want more like it!

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

How did you decide which gods to include in the Golarion pantheon? Were there certain archetypes that you felt a niche for?

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

James, when writing new content for Golarion, is there an ideal ratio of explanation to new questions?

And in the heart of the Inner Sea lies the Isle of Kortos (which translated from ancient Azlanti means "Starstone Isle")

So the Isle of Kortos translates to "The Isle of Starstone Isle"?

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

James, if you could re-design magic systems to suit your own vision, would you have a division between spontaneous and prepared, or would you do something differently?

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

On a GOT-related note, what work of fiction would you like to see faithfully made into a mini-series or series on TV or streaming services?

I didn't say we haven't done a Lovecraftian one. I merely observed that I wasn't able to write for it or develop it.

Gotcha. If you were to write one, what level tier do you enjoy writing the most?

I'd love to do an Adventure Path that's fully Lovecraftian in theme and then be the one to develop it and write for it.

More so than Strange Aeons? Do you have an area to focus on, say like Aucturn?

In your Demons vs Elves video, you mentioned you don't attend GenCon anymore. Can I ask why?

Sovereign Court 5/5 RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

5x SFS, 1 PFS2e and 1 PFS 1e Special! I'm satisfied. Hopefully I'll be able to run something bonkers for SFS!

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

Should we have gotten the scenario yet?

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

I'm going to bow out. I'd love to join, but I'm not going to have time to create a concept that does justice to the excellent standards Hmm requires! (And well she should; she runs an excellent game!)

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

So we have a fighter type and a wizard type so far? I think I might go rogue to see how the trapfinding works. I'll work at it and post a rough character up soon.

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

I would love to play Plunder and/or Peril, too!

Purple crit systems affected: 2d100 ⇒ (9, 48) = 57
Orange crit systems affected : 1d100 ⇒ 94

The orange ship fires at the retreating Pegasus. Vandal Rocket vs TL: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (20) + 6 = 26 for 4d6 ⇒ (1, 1, 5, 5) = 12 damage.
Coilgun: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14 for 4d4 ⇒ (4, 1, 3, 3) = 11 damage.

The purple ship fires at you!
Coilgun: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (15) + 6 = 21 for 4d4 ⇒ (4, 1, 2, 1) = 8 damage.

Your turn!

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

David, do you want the mystic or the soldier? I think I'd rather try the soldier if you're game for the mystic.

MerlinCross, it's because alchemical weapons have become the alchemist's bread and butter, which means if they're super cheap for everyone, the alchemist loses a bit of oomph.

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, 2011 Top 32

Redelia might be a great addition, actually.
