I've been thinking of something similar, but taking it a step further. Remove both Fighter and Paladin, and replace them with the Champion and the Guardian, respectively. The Guardian is defense oriented, with better armor proficiencies, etc., while the Champion is offense based. Each class could have a "Holy Warrior" series of class feats, which makes having religious\alignment ties optional.

This would also leave design room later for class feat series based on the other kinds of magic (barbarian totems shouldn't get all the fun).

Gazigaz grimaces in frustration, before a mischevious gleam appears in his eye. One hand comes up to his face, thumb to his nose and fingers waggling before his eyes. Sticking out his tongue, the showy skittermander retorts, "Maybe if your builders had spent less time programming dance moves and more time on your sensors, you'd notice we're sentient, tin can!" That'll Get'Em! Hoping his words will create a disctraction, he snaps off another shot...

Static Arc pistol: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25
Elec damage: 1d6 ⇒ 1

And cries out in triumph as it critically connects, and arcs to Green!

Crit damage: 1d6 ⇒ 3
Arc: 2 = 2

I didn't get that exact thing, but a second Amiri also popped up in my party playing last night. It bugged out when trying to do a step of her personal quest, because it both thought she was in my party and back at my capital.

Is there still no news on what comes after Vine Leshy at the smaller cons?

It is unusual to hear what the GM boon will be until after it has started being given out. Since GenCon is this weekend, and an (almost) guaranteed boon change point, we'll probably found out either this weekend (from smaller cons elsewhere) or next (as the first cons after GenCon).

So Landon, feel free to dot-and-delete in Gameplay.

1) Go to the Gameplay tab.
2) Make a post.
3) Delete your post. You will have to hit delete twice!

This will get the game into your campaigns tab, and make it easier for you to find!

Hmm

So, I've tried these instructions a few times (under different aliases too, which is messing up the players\characters tab), and it still isn't showing up under my Campaigns tab. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Also, just realized an alias doesn't have the fields to utilize the headers like a character alias does. What is the accepted convention regarding this, if I'm planning on applying this credit to a PC who already has a name and 2 XP? Post under that alias?

Lastly, is there a sort of "Dummies Guide to PbP"? I've perused the GM Kit, but that feels like it's for someone a step or two more knowledgeable than my current point...

Silly question, but if you use SMALL Falcatas (sized for a Gnome say), wouldn't they be light weapons? And you would take a -2 to hit for using a weapon not the correct size...

But they would be "light" Falcatas...

I have been looking at doing something like this with small Bastard Swords... A light weapon that does 1d8 (crit 19x2)...

Only the off-hand weapon needs to be small, as well, so you could keep full damage on the main hand with only a -2, and one size smaller damage on the off-hand at a -4 (extra -2 for size).

Are there stats with feats/tricks for Poog's animal companion or should I just do my own?

Edit
Also I think the +5 tome has the wrong price. The price listed is for the +4 version, +5 should be 137,500 I think.

The animal companion is missing on purpose, I think.

A certain boon might need a bit of revision. It doesn't give a limit. I assume just a one time deal, otherwise it could be used in every encounter.

If you mean the second boon, it does say it has to be crossed off to be used.

The only GenCon ticket I bought was for the SFS special on Saturday night. (Granted, my schedule in the demo hall means that evenings are the only time I have to play, and most evenings I want real food or sleep. But I’m forgoing that real meal and sleep in order to do the SFS special!)

So things you can do on Saturday Night:

  • Get a real meal
  • Get sleep
  • Get exercise — take a walk and see all the costumes
  • Try out a Non-Paizo game
  • Try out another GenCon event or panel
  • Organize your own PFS game on Warhorn, and take it to one of the tables at one of the hotels.
There’s lots of things to do on a Saturday night!

Hmm

My plan for Saturday night is to actually check out the vendor/exhibitors hall since nearly all of my other time at the con is going to be spent with PFS or sleeping.

SIDETRACK - Is cosplay popular at GenCon? I might have to pack one or two if it is...

Cosplay is quite popular. Keep in mind though that the vendor\exhibitor hall closes at 6 on Thursday-Saturday, and 4 on Sunday.

For me, I'm not sure it makes that much difference, but wanted to mention it. If it's useful for tracking purposes I can also email genconleads and/or pfsreportingerrors (the 'Report a problem' link).

Interesting. We were at the same table and I am not seeing it reported on my character.
That *is* interesting...I checked with my daughter and she sees 9-00 in the same event as I do, along with the Starfinder table she had.

It is entirely possible that my poor penmanship is the cause of my problem.

I was going to ask for your PFS number but I realize I have it already!

This table's also showing up for me now. As the GM, I can see the reported numbers of the players, so if you'd like, feel free to PM me your PFS number and character, and I'll see if I can help figure out what specifics you'd need to send to Todd once completion is confirmed.

It requires a round, and a possible level-dip, but a wildblooded(sylvan) sorcerer can cast enlarge person on their animal companion via share spells. So Large at effective druid 4th (however you get there).

Or keep a couple of dire collars on hand, and switch them out between fights.

I agree it would be nice to not have to jump through these hoops, though, so I'd support the requested clarification.

I was able to do what you're asking. Once I had added it to my newer iPhone using the instructions, then sync'd the phone to my iTunes, iTunes started automatically pulling the feed like it would any other podcast. Then I just sync'd my older phone and it loaded the podcast just fine.

Hello Kyrand,

Ah, I see now. The other order had already shipped when I looked yesterday so I only saw one pending order and wasn't sure why you didn't think the items were in the order.

When you start a subscription if you already have a different subscription the first item will generate to your sidecart to ship out with the other subscription, unless you switch the shipping method. If you don't it will instead generate to an order. So when you started the Adventure Path subscription it generated to an order and then the other items were moved into that order. Since the first Adventure Path volume hadn't shipped they also generated to their own order instead of going to your sidecart. That's why you had 2 separate orders.

The Paizo Advantage discount is not active until the first Adventure Path ships out. So it was just bad timing that the maps didn't get the discount, they shipped before the order with the Adventure Path did. I have added the discount to the order and issued a refund for the difference to your original payment method. You should be able to see it as soon as your bank processes it.

Ah, I understand now. I got the last order's authorization shortly after my original posts.

I was prepared to write off the discount on the maps, so that's a pleasant surprise, thank you!

Sovereign Court

The listed order:

1) began a subscription to the AP beginning with the War for the Crown AP
2) block of 12 16mm d6, scarab-scarlet/gold
3) Pathfinder Dice: Paizo d20 (purple) x2
4) Pathfinder Dice: Paizo d20 (blue) x2

The items were moved from order 4624528 when I had cancelled my maps subscription (which I have since restarted, and I just got the shipping notice for today).

I'm also not sure if the items shipped so far this month got (or should have gotten) the Pathfinder Advantage discount for shipping with the first volume of my AP subscription.

Sovereign Court

I placed this order last month, and set it as Ship with Subscription. However, none of the items involved are showing as part of my shipments this month... Can someone take a look and make sure this order didn't get stuck somewhere? Thanks!

As someone who just experienced their first PaizoCon last year, I whole-heartedly agree with Todd. PaizoCon may be the single smoothest convention experience I've ever had, in fact. There's always something available to do, but I never felt guilty or that I was missing out if I needed to head back to my (very nice) room and regroup for a bit.

Sadly, I have an obligation at another event the same weekend this year, but I'm already beginning budgeting plans for 2019. As an aside, I'm going to be super interested in trading for a PaizoCon GM boon if Isabelle's speculation is correct.

I had the same train of thought when I was making my first scholar. However, the simplest explanation (for me) was sort-of the reverse: The inclusions of the other sub-fields as separate choices implied that the "biology" option was intended to only cover what wasn't already a different field, in this case pretty much just humanoids.

Biology - humanoid life
Botany - plant life
Zoology - animal life
Xenobiology - non-DNA\RNA based life (As I understand the Wikipedia article's definition, this would have the potential for such a significant difference from life as we know it to nearly be a macro field itself. Granted, that article is the extent of my knowledge)

Definitely agree that there could be some overlap between these fields, though, and a lot of overlap between bioengineering and genetics.

Sounds reasonable to me. I've heard from a number of GMs who de-emphasize the plot ties from Crypt to Masks since they can rarely be run back-to-back for a group, which then confuses players who do end up continuing the series.

The usual pattern would have had it change back on 8/1, but it looks like vanara was the boon for an extra month. On the other hand, your guess would have it not changing until a month after GenCon (which is back to early Aug next year). If they return to the original pattern (which is my personal guess), it looks like one of the boons in the next year will be only a limited run. As for which... *shrugs*

Two new scenarios are released on the last Wednesday of each month. Unfortunately, in your case, the three scenarios released at GenCon are the ones for August, so no new Season 9 scenarios will be released until September 27th.

However, running scenarios from previous seasons can be a good thing, as it can help players learn how the Society has gotten to its current predicaments and goals.
