Let's say the PCs are in exploration mode in a dungeon, using the Avoid Notice activity. They enter a room with a mimic in it doing its Mimic Object thing.

  • Do they automatically get a Perception check vs. its Deception, or do they have to explicitly say they're examining it? Or does the Mimic roll a Deception vs. their Perception DC, since its the one actively attempting something, i.e., fooling the PCs?

  • If they roll a Perception check vs. its Deception, does that count as their Initiative roll, or do they roll a Perception check to see if they're fooled and then another roll for Initiative?

  • Do they roll Perception for Initiative since the last thing they did before Encounter Mode was Seek, or do they still roll Stealth because they were using Avoid Notice as their exploration activity?

  • What does the Mimic use for Initiative: Stealth or Deception?

  • In general, if you're using a skill exploration activity (like, say, Borrow an Arcane Spell), do you use the specified skill for initiative, or do you use Perception unless the activity specifically says you use something else (like, say, Avoid Notice does)?

    On September 16th, I received an email with the above title, saying that my payment method had been declined.

    I contacted my bank, and they said they saw two charges (my subscription order had been split in two for shipping) and that both had been approved. (I checked again today, and both charges have moved from pending to "real" as of the 17th.)

    I called Paizo next and spoke to Virginia (I believe), and she said she saw nothing wrong with either part of my order, suggesting that perhaps the system sent the email as a glitch.

    As of today, however, when shipping was supposed to be complete, I haven't received a shipment email for the Ambush Sites Multi-Pack flip mat, nor is the PDF in my downloads.

    I'm not in any huge hurry for the maps (I'd be much more frantic if it had been my AP installment stuck somewhere), but could you take a look at this again? It appears that I've been charged for the map pack, but it hasn't actually shipped.

    Thanks.

    Because this has been brought up twice in the Lost Omens World Guide product discussion thread, and because we have been told to take the discussion out of the Lost Omens World Guide product discussion thread...

    Why are Paizo PDFs so expensive?

    Paizo prices their PDFs at approximately 30% off the print price. Always has.

    However, when the Pathfinder RPG launched, Paizo heavily discounted the PDFs for what they considered "core" books: the CRB, Bestiaries, and other rulebook lines. Those were priced at $9.99, so that people could cheaply get into the game and see if they liked it.*

    For P2e, the price has gone up to $14.99 for those core books. All other Paizo PDFs, from novels to maps to AP volumes, sell for approximately 70% of the print product pricing.

    The one difference: in P1e, Paizo included the setting book, the Pathfinder World Guide, as core and sold its PDF at $9.99. This time around, for whatever reason, they've made the decision not to give the setting book the same discount.

    Note that all the rules are, in fact, available online for free, and that you can get the PDF of any new book for free with the print edition by subscribing to the line.

    *:
    Interesting historical note: The original plan was for only the CRB and the Bestiary to get the cheaper $9.99 price.


    Owing to its proximity to Breachill Town Hall, the Wizard's Grace tavern is the favored establishment of the many adventurers who wish to seek work from the council in the town's monthly Call for Heroes. Here, adventurers and municipal workers regularly mingle, exchanging stories and generally enjoying the atmosphere created by the diverse clientele.

    Over the past few days, the tavern has grown particularly busy, as hopeful adventurers seek to make an impression on the locals, particularly any town officials who might have stopped by for a drink and a meal. Today at noon the Call for Heroes will be held, and Trinil Uskwold is presiding over the traditional meal of boar stew with lentils for hopefuls and spectators alike.

    Every hero has an origin story.

    A lot of them start in Breachill. Unlike many towns, where so-called adventurers are met with rolling eyes, doors shut in their faces, jacked-up prices, and the epithet "murder-hobos", Breachill welcomes adventurers. After all, it was a wandering adventurer who rescued a group of lost folk and, out of the goodness of his heart and overflow of his purse, founded the town itself.

    In memory of Lamond Breachton, the citizens of Breachill respect all wanderers and enthusiastically employ adventurers to solve problems outside the wheelhouse of the local authorities. Any unusual situation, from lost caravans to lost livestock, rats in the cellar of the local tavern or bandits on the highway into town, can be solved at the monthly Call for Heroes, where young locals looking to prove themselves or outsiders needing work are officially approved and hired to take on the task.

    It may not be an easy way to earn some coin, but it's a lot more exciting than mopping floors or harvesting crops. And who knows? a life of fame and fortune, travel and acclaim might be waiting for you!

    So, what's the deal? We're all excited about the new edition. This is the chance for all of us to kick some tires, take a test drive, and inhale a deep whiff of that new-system smell. I will commit to run book one of the Age of Ashes Adventure Path, Hellknight Hill; when we get done with that, we'll decide whether to continue on. My purpose in running this game is threefold:

  • to learn how to play 2e;
  • to see how the intricacies of the system (triggers, reactions, etc.) run in PbP;
  • to have fun!

    Who are you anyway? Hi, I'm Joana! I've been playing since 1998, starting with AD&D 2nd edition and continuing through 3rd, 3.5, and Pathfinder 1e. I've been active in PbPs on these forums since 2009. As GM, I completed a game of We B4 Goblins! and am currently running a sandbox campaign set in Riddleport that has been running since 2012 and a Giantslayer campaign that has been running since 2015.

    What are you looking for? Players who can post at least once per 24 hours on the average day (weekends negotiable). Mechanically, I don't need any numbers yet. Since one of my goals is to learn the new system, I'd rather walk through character creation in the Discussion thread once the party has been assembled. I just want to know the A-B-Cs (Ancestry, Background, and Class, with the Background selected from the campaign backgrounds listed in the Age of Ashes Player's Guide), a little about your PC's life up until now, and why your PC is applying to be an adventurer at Breachill's Call for Heroes.

    Anything else? I use maps, updated on every PC's initiative so we all stay on the same page. You can check the combat in my existing games to get a feel for my style.

    Because this is a new system, we're going to start out sticking as close to RAW as possible. I am not an expert on 2e; unless you're a Paizo dev, you probably aren't, either. We'll muddle through together. I'll make mistakes; please let me know about them (politely) and we'll do our best to fix it.

    I was an English major, so spelling, grammar, and punctuation count. You're not being graded, and typos happen, but please make an effort.

    I don't recruit in your gameplay thread, so please don't roleplay in my recruitment thread. :) It's easier for me to keep track of submissions if I don't have to scroll through prospective PCs talking with each other. There will be a chance for preliminary roleplaying and meet-and-greets in the gameplay thread when the party has been selected.

    Let's set a tentative cut-off date for recruitment one week from today, whatever that happens to be in your respective time zones.

    Shield Block says:

    Quote:

    You snap your shield into place to deflect a blow. Your shield

    prevents you from taking an amount of damage up to its Hardness—
    the shield takes this damage instead, possibly becoming dented or
    broken. See page 175 for rules on dented and broken items.

    Okay, so the shield

  • prevents me from taking an amount of damage up to its Hardness, for example, 3 for a wooden shield,

  • takes this damage (3) instead,

  • presumably leaving me to take the rest of the damage (7 from a 10-damage hit),

  • but also possibly becomes dented and broken? How?

    Let's turn to p. 175:

    Quote:
    An item reduces any damage dealt to it by its Hardness. The Hardness of various materials is explained in the Materials section on page 354. If an item takes damage equal to or exceeding the item’s Hardness, the item takes a Dent. If the item takes damage equal to or greater than twice its Hardness in one hit, it takes 2 Dents. For instance, a wooden shield (Hardness 3) that takes 10 damage would take 2 Dents. A typical item can take only 1 Dent without becoming broken. A second Dent causes it to become broken, though it can still be repaired. An item that would take a Dent or become broken while already broken is destroyed beyond salvage. Some magical or especially sturdy items can take more than 1 Dent before becoming broken, as noted in their descriptions.

    So, in this explanation, the wooden shield

  • reduces damage taken up to its Hardness (3),

  • is dented if the remaining damage is equal to or exceeding its hardness (7, in this case),

  • takes 2 Dents if the remaining damage from a single hit is equal to or greater than twice its hardness (7, in this case, so the shield is broken but reparable),

  • presumably leaving me to take no damage, or possibly the excess damage over the hardness plus twice the hardness (1, in this case)?

    These two abilities don't seem to work together. If Shield Block reduces damage to the character by only the shield's hardness, as the reaction reads, the shield shouldn't have a chance to be dented or broken, and there's no need to link to p. 175. If the shield can be dented or broken by using it to Shield Block, then the reaction should reduce damage to the PC by the amount equal to up to three times the shield's hardness (the amount of damage reduced by Hardness plus the amount needed to break the shield.)

    (Apologies if this has been brought up already; there are so many threads in the playtest forum. I'd appreciate a link to any previous discussion.)

    Session 0: Character Creation

    I am running Doomsday Dawn for my family: my husband, with extensive gaming experience going back to AD&D, my 15-year-old daughter, and my 12-year-old son, both of whom have very limited experience with Beginner Box rules.

    My daughter decided to play the same character she has played in Black Fang's Dungeon and so on: an elf rogue named Iris. My son wanted to play a goblin and ended up with a barbarian named Ratscum. My husband is filling in the blanks in the party with a dwarf cleric and a human fighter.

    We found all the ability boosts in character creation hard to keep up with. It feels like you don't really know where you want those extra +2s until you've added all your fixed boosts, but then you have to go back and figure out where the extra boosts came from so you're not putting them into the same ability scores as the fixed ones from that level. Also, the character creation walkthrough on page 11 seems to skip over the four free ability boosts altogether. I only found them when I thought the scores we were ending up with didn't look as high as the characters I'd seen generated in some of the preview threads.

    I let my kids distribute their boosts as they chose, with only mild reminders of what their classes' key abilities were. I was totally inwardly cringing at my son's decision to go with a 14 Cha and 12 Con, although he's thrilled with his first-level Raging Intimidation feat, and my daughter didn't put any points into Wisdom, despite the fact that she took the Keen Hearing ancestry feat. I view this as a chance to see if the playtest rules are more forgiving than P1e rules to non- (anti-?) optimizers.

    We found most of the campaign backgrounds kind of boring. My daughter took Mind Quake Survivor because it was the only one that sounded dramatic enough to her. My son was happy with Goblin Renegade because he already wanted to be a goblin, but his character doesn't have Crafting trained so the Quick Repair feat is going to waste for now.

    In all, character creation for two newbies took probably three hours from sitting down with character sheets and pencils to finalizing purchases. There was a lot of flipping around pages and PDFs around the ability boosts. I should note that my husband, experienced gamer and noted micromanager, is still flipping around the PDF as I type, trying to find exactly the right options for his PCs. We'll see to what extent the PCs that were agonized over outplay the ones that were put together on a whim.

    My subscription order has been divided into two shipments, one of which is a single map. I would just presume that it's cheaper to ship two packages under 2 pounds than one over 3, but I see other people have reported similar issues that have been mistakes. Could you check it, please?

    When I go to the Paizo Blog page, the datestamps for the most recent entries are off. For example, right now, the Player's Guide blog indicates it was posted "2 minutes ago" and the ACG blog "56 minutes ago." However, both were posted yesterday afternoon.

    I've noticed this in passing before since the site update, thinking, "Oh, hey, a new blog entry!" when I see the "x minutes ago" and clicking before I realize I've already read that entry, but I just assumed that maybe I had read the screen wrong. This time, I double-checked to be sure.


    Pathfinder Companion, Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

    Please cancel my Starfinder AP & RPG subscriptions. I wish Paizo all the luck in the world with the game, but having played it for a while, I find it's not for me. I'll stick with Pathfinder.

    Thank you!

    This may very well have been revealed and I just didn't read the right blogs, but who is the Aspis Consortium of Starfinder? Is there a rival group to the Starfinder Society?

    An NPC has a pack of trained dogs she has ordered to attack the PCs. A PC casts calm animals. Assuming the dogs fail their save and the PC rolls high enough to affect all their hit die, what happens now? If the NPC orders them to attack again, do they just ignore her for the duration of the spell? I presume they would obey non-hostile commands normally?

    What if the calmed animal is an animal companion? Does it make any difference?

    I just placed Order 4241031 for the Monster Hunter's Handbook, but looking at the upcoming products in the Companion line, they look pretty cool so I'd like to change the one-time order to a Player Companion Subscription. Can you change that for me, or do I need to have the order cancelled and place a new order to start the sub?


    Pathfinder Companion, Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

    Okay, I know this is a very basic question, but ...

    Quote:
    On the round following a direct hit, the target takes an additional 1d6 points of damage. If desired, the target can use a full-round action to attempt to extinguish the flames before taking this additional damage. Extinguishing the flames requires a DC 15 Reflex save. Rolling on the ground provides the target a +2 bonus on the save. Leaping into a lake or magically extinguishing the flames automatically smothers the fire.

    When does the secondary damage take place? On the target's turn following the direct hit, like bleed damage, or on the attacker's turn, like acid arrow?

    Option 1:

    Round 1, init 20: PC scores direct hit on BBEG with alchemist's fire
    init 15: BBEG either acts and takes additional damage OR spends a full-round action trying to extinguish the flames

    Option 2:

    Round 1, init 20: PC scores direct hit on BBEG with alchemist's fire
    init 15: BBEG acts OR spends a full-round action trying to extiguish the flames
    Round 2, init 20: BBEG takes additional damage (unless he made the Reflex save) and PC acts again

    Please cancel my AP subscription at this time. I stuck it out for the CotCT hardcover, but the volumes of Strange Aeons I have received have only confirmed that Lovecraft is not my cup of tea. I'll most likely re-up for the hobgoblins.

    Also, please cancel my Pathfinder Battles subscription.

    Thank you.
