I had a followup question: apart from restricting it to Core, what were you thinking of for character generation?

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That could be interesting. Restricting it to core takes out a lot of the system mastery aspects of play and increases the need for tactical mastery.

Incidentally, I'd guess that people will be interested regardless of your rules choices. AP recruitments don't come along that often anymore.

1301: Bite Size

How many of us saw this coming?

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It's 2e.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

It's a utility for managing signups and chronicle generation. If you pay for the fancy version it'll email chronicles to your players, but the free version will still get you pdfs.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Interested! I was slow to get into PFS2E, so by the time I started no one was running this any more. I have a few possible PCs depending on party needs.

GM,

Kindly, you do realize that requesting that we make private submissions while also asking that we consider reducing submission redundancy is setting us up for failure!

=)

Point taken, I honestly didn't think about that at first. I was thinking more in the lines of someone wanting to share elements of their character that they didn't want other party members to know from the beginning.

Apologies in advance if you already know this, but magi especially will vary a lot depending on their hybrid field of study even before they pick their free archetype.

One question, btw: do you want to know in advance if any of us have played/run any of AoA before?

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Given that GM Cody just ran a recruitment for AoA and had eleven applicants, I don't think you'll have any trouble at all. Would you be restricting class choices to the eight in the Remastered Core, or allowing other classes with the caveat that they may have to be rebuilt after further books come out?

ETA: GM Cody used the free archetype rule. Would you also consider that?

ATTENTION: ALL PAIZO BOARD GMS

First, as the Venture Agent for this lodge, I want to thank you for stepping up (many of you repeatedly) and running games. Your efforts are recognized and greatly appreciated!

Further, I would like to remind all GMs to log their games in the Data Tracking Form. This helps us keep track of things, including your efforts, and to let the powers that be know that we're still around and there's still interest in this Lodge.

It also keeps me from having to try to do it by hand.

The link is at the top of the page. It takes less than a minute to complete the tracking form (probably less than half a minute.)

If you have any questions about how do to so, please feel free to drop a message here or PM me.

Happy Gaming!

This may be a stupid question, but is there a way to see the results? I think I reported a recent game, but there's no feedback to acknowledge it and I don't want to double-report or not report.

I can't stand the Discord format for PbP... there's just something about it that doesn't work as well as the Paizo boards for some reason. The lack of exhaustive headers and inability to link your sheet to a clickable avatar/name is probably what bugs me the most.

This seems like an excellent thing to continue in the Discussion thread.

Less rules content but more, "Uh hey I messed up the map on Google Slides, any ideas how to fix it?"

If you do it, you can use Undo. There's also a way to restore an earlier version, but since I'm posting from my phone I can't look it up.

Liberty's Edge 2/5

Definitely. It's not surprising when a player knows more than the GM about the rules covering their PC.

Also, if you're running a special you can always ask the other GMs.

There are a few 1st Edition games planned for Outpost, including the Siege of Serpents special. That's just over a month out, though.

This particular subforum is for online play recruitment. There's a subforum elsewhere on the boards for in-person recruitment, and I've flagged your post so it gets moved there. Good luck! Unfortunately, the closest gamers I know in person are in the Twin Cities area.

Speaking of which, there's a gaming con coming up in a few weeks in Minneapolis--Con of the North. If you're able to get down there you'd probably be able to make some contacts.

I'm interested in doing PFS 1e stuff. Any chance on there being any 1e specials? Core and/or Standard?

After our discussion after the last Game Day, I got the impression that we're going with Siege of Serpents.

ETA: I should have read the Outpost announcement first--Siege of Serpents is a go!

If you run Standard, I'd like to play Rhu Entekh, tiefling zen archer/5 in search of--if not inner peace, at least a lack of inner rage.

If you run Core, I'd like to play Salvio Perovsky, human universalist wizard/4 who's a little bit (OK, a lot) of a shut-in and scholar. He's only played twice and has lots of GM credit.

I have neither played nor GMed this scenario before. Although I have several games active on the boards, I'm running half of them.

As for your Core game, looking into it, one of the players wasn't a Core character so the entire game got rolled to Standard. I will correct the players and reporting info.

I was in that game, and I'm sure we all thought we were Core. Which character wasn't?

Posted to quickly there.

On to Barbara Hambly's Dragonbane, which is apparantly the first in a series. My only previous experience with Hambly is her Star Wars stuff, which I recall precious little of. 40 pages in and I'm pleased with the book so far. Having a female lead who's middle-aged, a not terribly powerful magician, and who is by most accounts rather ugly, is an unusual protagonist.

I enjoyed Dragonbane, and should reread it one of these days.

Hambly also wrote a couple of IMO very good Star Trek:TOS novels, second only (again IMO) to John M. Ford's pair of TOS novels.

I have already made Multiple characters using Pathfinder 2e, but would still like to have a Level 0. I would also like to use safety tools so we all feel comfortable.

The vast majority of recruitments posted in this subforum are for play-by-post games, and not virtual tabletop gaming in real time. I tend to see more VTT games posted on Discord; e.g., on the Roll for Combat server. Cayden's Keg has some as well.

I think there's been a problem reporting CORE Campaign games. My Core game of Year of the Shadow lodge got reported as Standard Campaign.

It appears my Core "Race for the Runecarved Key" Special from last year's GameDay may have been reported as Standard as well.

Along with other Core games.

Can the reporting be fixed and all PCs be converted back to Core?

I just checked the credit for your PF1 special, and Raknir is now correctly credited. You should verify that Bella got hers.

*casts thread necromancy*

If a Core wizard has a non-Core spell in their spellbook (obtained legally, either from a chronicle or a looted spellbook), can they buy scrolls or wands of that spell?

This assumes that the non-Core spell didn't come from a scroll, because the PC could buy them as needed.

Offhand I'd lean towards no, because Core wizards are already better off than sorcerers or bards in their spell selection--giving them additional item options seems to be too much.
