How do I work this?

Where is that large library of supplemental material?

Have you checked out Vol 2 of Age of Ashes : Cult of Cinders?

They have a section about running/updating a citadel/base in the Toolbox. Though it is a bit tuned to the adventure location the rules could easily be used in a homebrew/another location.

No Subscription coming soon. I asked this in general paizo forum last week and Sara Marie reached out .

Awesome. Yeah I meant individual AP books, though marathoning a whole AP over a weekend sounds... interesting lol

Losing the flexibility that modules provided is pretty huge, though.

Doesn't having bigger modules in 2e change that flexibility too?

I'm curious.

Do people run AP's and 32+ Page longer adventures at conventions?

The 32 page format was great for an all day game at a con. I have ran Ruby Phoenix Tournament and played in Fangwood Keep and Murder's Mark. All were fun. I have not seen an AP ran at a convention however (Though I have not been around past few years, so not sure if that has changed) I have seen people playing APs at the shop in "Campaign mode, however (Over multiple sessions or weekends)

As it stands on the schedule right now, the 2 modules have a page count closer to an AP rather than the 32 page module. Is it even feasible to run (An AP or current module) at a convention without cutting a large portion? Do people run these at conventions?

Is a Subscription for the Pathfinder Society Quest's something the team might consider in the future?

I would love the option to have a Quest subscription (If I could substitute for The complementary SFS, it would be even more awesome xD ) , though I am not sure how regularly the Quests intend to come out, or if it would make since to make it a subscription.

Thinking about this more in depth, maybe there is a better way to please everyone, without putting to much pressure on the busy staff members of Organized play.

My Idea comes from a bit how Hardcovers are run in Adventure League (5e Organized Play) (well at least the last time I played it about a year ago) In AL you get credit based on time played in the module. Example 12 hours of play might equal one level worth of XP.

What if (kind of a evolution of Nefreet's idea above) instead of having a chronicle sheet for each AP and Mod as it has been in the past, they made a "generic" hardcover chronicle sheet and use the Adventure League format? (XP = Based on time played)

It could be a generic/blank chronicle you could use with any hardcover adventure based on time played. GM's could write in items found in the session for purchase , and it could even solve the "partial play" problem if it is based on time alone. It would also free up resources from the already busy staff.

Arcane Mark is a true gem if you have not checked it out yet, please do.

Mark and Linda produce an entertaining and informative show. There is always an interesting topic or interview, and it has one of the best twitch communities I have seen.

Rarely have I seen this level of interaction between a company/creator and its fans and it is truly magical.

Keep up the great work Mark and Linda . :)

Why not include these maps with the hardcover on Absalom and just up the price, like you did with the world guide?

Also what are the dimensions of each map, and are they 1 or 2 sided?

If I remember correctly (From Gencon previews), there will be a map of Abasalom in the Lost Omens Absalom Hardcover, similar to the one in the world guide. (4 panels).

This one is a huge, detailed version similar to the large map of the inner sea they put out years ago (4 4 panel sheets - 16 panels).

Either way, super stoked for this. I have always had a love for urban adventures, and Absalom in general , and this is gonna be super awesome!

Personally I like it.

It was always cumbersome at best running an AP for PFS. Cutting out content to fit in a smaller time frame, themes and characters that always did not line up with Pathfinder Society (Organization) was not ideal.

When the modules were 32 pages, it made sense, as those seemed to fit nicely for a day at the convention. (And an all day module at the con will be missed) Now that modules (so far) are larger, it also runs into the problems the APs had.

I think its a good compromise. Content can be run more as it was intended too, while also giving players invested in PFS rewards for playing through the content, and at a faster pace.

and it, T1-4 means there is a Lvl 1-2 mode and a lvl 3-4 mode of these.

1) If I start a brand new character in these, starting with 1-01 - The Absalom Initiation, can I play in all of them?

2) Do they have to be played in order?

Even playing all of these, I think I can only get to Level 2 with my character.

1) Yes!

2) They do not need to be in order. Though 1-01 Absalom Initiation is a great scenario to start with, as it teaches you a bit about the Pathfinder Society.
3) Yeah sounds about Right. Should be around Level 2 , if you play all of these.

How many different threads and thread derails are we going to have on rarity? It is starting to get a bit old..

The Devs/Designers have already established that it is a tool for GM's to use (or NOT use) and explained in multiple threads , what their intentions of the system is and how you are free to ignore it if its not your cup of tea.

Was thinking about this last night.

Traditionally in 1e the Investigator was a mix of Alchemy and Rogue. 2e has the unique approach to branch off from there and make it unique.

Maybe the Investigator will have not rely on Alchemy at all and have unique new options and features. I think having something like gadgets or trinkets would be awesome and would fit the class nicely. Could be magical or not , or a mix, and also expand out the design space for the class (without crowding the Alchemist design space)

However it turns out, i'm sure it will be awesome!

If I want to build an arcane warrior that needs a ring of wizardry to be effective, I am still not able to expect that.

Relying on one item/spell/etc to make your build "effective" , does not seem effective at all.

I am not sure if this a system specific problem, as one could argue the same thing about any system, no matter the "rarity" of item.

I'd say there's a fine line between "too many modifiers to keep track of in a speedy fashion" and "not enough modifiers to encourage tactical thinking", but I suspect that line has negative width. In other words, there's likely an area in the middle where it's both clumsy and uninteresting.

Whoever solves that problem has a decent shot at eating WotC's lunch.

Does 2e not solve this problem with Item, Status, and Circumstances Bonuses?

There are three other types of bonus that frequently appear: circumstance bonuses, item bonuses, and status bonuses. If you have different types of bonus that would apply to the same roll, you’ll add them all. But if you have multiple bonuses of the same type, you can use only the highest bonus on a given roll—in other words, they don’t “stack.”

Seems to get rid of the Buff train effect, with still adding depth and options

I had a question about Greytusk's Double Shot activity.

It States "Greytusk can spend two ranged strikes against two different targets each at a -2 penalty, Greytusks multiple attack penalty increases only after both attacks are made"

So if Greytusk were to use its three actions to first use Double Shot (With both attacks at -2 ) , then make another longbow strike , would the 3rd strike be at -5 or -10? (Because it is the third attack in the round)

In 2e it states Angels predominantly (with exceptions) come from Nirvana. In first edition it is stated they come from Nirvana, Heaven and Elysium depending on alignment.

What caused the shift to make then mainly come from Nirvana (instead of a mix, or perhaps was I misinformed about them equally coming from the different planes)?

I dig it and have been able to build characters faster. Some points I enjoy.

-Love the integration of stats into the ABC. Saves time by removing a step (Figuring out ability scores) and interrogates into the choices of your character. Feels intuitive .

-The block approach speeds things up as well in my opinion. When it tells you to pick a Ancestry (or Class or Skill) feat they are all there easily laid out in one place, enabling you to make faster decisions. (No more flipping through pages of feats, taking notes of what will work.. etc) (Only exception to this would be spells, which sit in there own chapter and organized alphabetically rather than by level, which does make sense for the data/spells needed to be presented)

-Character sheet took a little while to get use to, but after use I find it to be well designed (Functionally) with a place/location for everything you need to record.

"The appeal of PF1 comes from combing classes, archetypes, traits, feats, spells and items to some unique (and mostly overpowered) builds". And I fully agree with that sentiment. In the new system, you're pretty much gonna pick 1 or 2 classes and...

I disagree with this. In fact it is what drove me away from PF1 to begin with. It was never fun GMing for "mostly overpowered Builds" where PCs would one shot everything. It was even less fun playing on a table with a "less than optimized" character (And to be fair I have seen a few new players (in PFS) driven away after there first game because of this too) with someone running a "mostly overpowered Builds".

So yeah a hard No from me dawg.

Just wanted to take some time and acknowledge the wonderful work of the Art/Graphic Design team.

Every book I have picked up for 2e I am blown away by. The art selection is diverse and top notch. The layouts are wonderfully designed in a concise matter. The font selection is superb and I love all the details (Borders, tables stat block layout, side bars, color selections .. etc)

Sarah Robinson and team keep up the great work, Hands down the best art/layout/design in the business in my opinion!!

Finished reading The Environment section of in the Core Rulebook and it is quite awesome. Many details and options , yet simple (Standardized damage for environmental hazards) and room for customization and expansion. (Though, this is a common theme I see in alot of 2e rules and absolutely loving it) :)
