Also, I'd like to point out, sometimes things happen. Sometimes hardware goes bad. Sometimes something unexpected happens. They work really hard and they do good work. Maybe don't assume the worst.

It would help a whole lot if we could get an actual page you are seeing this on and what version of any browser you are using.

Thanks

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Can you be a bit more specific as to what pages you are seeing those on, it will greatly help us narrow down where to find the problem. Thank you.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Thanks. That helps a lot.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

If you could give us a little more detail on what terms and category you are seeing weirdness in, that would help a lot. Some of this MIGHT have been fixed with a recent issue fix today.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

The issues with avatars and aliases sometimes not showing up ahould be fixed. Thanks for your patience.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

This should be fixed. Please let us know if you see the issue again.

My aliases are gone from my profile.

Clicked: My Account -> My Profile
Showed my main profile with all the tabs

Got two headers, organized play and regukar (paraphrased)

But both caregories were empty. I tried tapping, but nothing happened. (please don't make me tap).

We've done some troubleshooting on this and have narrowed it down quite a bit but still haven't found the particulars. I'll spend a good amount of time tomorrow trying to figure it out. This is likely related to the same thing that's happening occasionally with avatars. With aliases if you reload the page once or twice, it should show up. With avatars, you'll have to go back and click the button again.

Not sure if this is related (maybe some kind of timeout issue?), but attempts to log in sometimes fail with no error message (doesn't say incorrect user name or password -- just goes back to the home page almost as if it had worked, except that I am still Guest).

Can you start a different thread for that. It's a completely different thing.

They have a thing that automates that part. We have stuff in place to catch them but it's not perfect. Nothing really is, so some accounts slip through. They often end up eventually telling on themselves but not always.

We have some speed improvements that will probably be coming sooner rather than later but not this week. When we have a lot of spammers, they end up using a lot of resources, often quite a lot because they are automating a lot of stuff. That's largely what happens during the weekend when things get slow.

Dear Paizo,

Thanks so much for the shifter update. I have faith in you!

What would it take to get a Corgi Aspect added to the list, even as just a blog post?

Thanks!

Faerie Mount / Corgi

The aspect of the faerie mount invokes a magical corgi from the First World (see Adventure Path #119: Prisoner of the Blight for more details), renowned for their loyalty and bravery. Those who take this aspect have the power of Calamity at their fingertips.

Minor Form: You gain a +4 competence bonus on saves against fear. At 8th level, this bonus increases to +6, and at 15th level, it increases to +8.

Major Form: Your shape changes to that of a fey mount (Prisoner of the Blight). While in this form, you gain low-light vision, scent, a 40-foot base land speed, and a bite attack (1d6 damage), and you gain a +4 racial bonus to CMD against bull rush and trip. At 8th level, you gain Nimble Moves as a bonus feat as long as you are carrying no more than a light load, and you gain a +4 racial bonus on Survival checks when tracking with scent. At 15th level, you gain Improved Natural Attack (bite) and your critical multiplier with your bite attack increases by 1, to a maximum of x4.

... As the owner of at least one Calamity, I'd have to say that I'd give Alertness and a further bonus to intiative rather than scent. Corgi's have far better hearing than many dogs and their sniffer, while still pretty good, isn't as great as many other dogs. Also, some sort of squeeze ability would not be out of the ordinary. Our dog loves to squeeze into the weirdest lowest places. She'd hide under the couch if there were more than 3 inches to do it in.

Thumbs up. =)

We take security pretty seriously here but a lot of our site is public and searchable. When you are viewing things that basically everyone can see we don't use https. Encryption used to take up a significant portion of the CPU and while that's no longer the case, really, we have a lot of legacy code to go through and change all that. Currently, when you go to My Downloads or sign in or are checking out, all of that goes through SSL(TLSv1.2 technically). So that information is safe.

Thanks for letting us know, though.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

No I had to turn them off for a little while. May have to turn it off again for a little bit today. We'll see.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

We're rolling software and it should be an intermediate error. It should be fixed now. I'm going to edit that out. Let me know if you see it again.

That was my fault. It should be far more stable now.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Hmmm. That may be. It might be timing out on the php for some reason. Can you send me a URL in a private message and I'll have it looked at.

If it makes you feel better, we're seeing a similar post frequency and traffic on our end. We also had a humble bundle that brought a few people in and might have had an uptick. Might be that conversations are a little more spread out with Starfinder be added. Could be a lot of different reasons it feels different but cursory glances show posts about once a minute-ish with PBP coming in around 2 to 3 per minute.

Well, that's the thing. I use firefox myself and am not seeing anything like that. I'll look further into it and see if I can see a reason.

Edit: OK. So I don't see any evidence of one of the things that might be. I want to ask for some more information. Are you possibly coming in on a proxy that you wouldn't be coming in on with chrome. Do you have any plugins enabled? Antivirus? Is Javascript disabled(though I don't know that that would cause the problem you are describing. Can you give it a go again and if you see that same pattern, please check your ip with something like https://www.whatismyip.com/ and can you PM that to me? Please don't include it in the post. Also, the rough time you tried it should help me immensely.

I have the same problem with Firefox. Incidentally those links are working on Pale Moon 27.0.6, which is what I'm currently using.

Check to make sure that you aren't coming in via an rss/atom link.

I've pushed an interim possible fix for the sessions logout issue while we figure out a better permanent solution. It has definitely logged everyone out BUT that should be the last time for awhile. Thanks for your patience on this one. It was not a solution I wanted to implement over the long weekend without being able to watch it extensively.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Yup. We're aware.

We had some services that are still in the middle of a restart so the site is only kind of half up which is causing a lot of the slowness right now.

Fun new error:

I was unable to login. "Sign up", "Login" and all that was displayed at the top right of the screen, but they were only text, not links (Looked into the source code: Only <li>Sign Up</> and so on, no <href="[whatever]"> anywhere).

Deleted my cookies, works now.
You might want to look into that.

Were you coming in via an RSS or Atom feed, per chance?

Yeah. We're looking at a few inefficiencies as well right now.

I have wanted to create a natural attack (claws) Bloodrager with the Fey Bloodline but would've had to go Crossblooded to get the claws...not anymore! The only concern I have about the Hag-Riven archetype (Bloodrager) is giving up DR--I like DR for frontliners. Still, I think this is the archetype I will use for that concept.

I like DR too but natural armor is nothing to sneeze at and is really great thematically. I wanted something that would be kind of terrifying to come up against on the battlefield and thinking about this hulking scarred woman with giant claws was great. =)

Bloodline.....
...hmm....sounds like many of the abilities are intended to be constant, not just while raging (which I'm OK with)....maybe Lissa will see this and chime in on intent (hint...hint...)

Intent was really to make it work similar to other bloodlines in that these things only work while raging; to give you something you can do to affect combat when you can't be adjacent to a foe but didn't overlap with hag-riven issues. It's advantageous when you can't reach a foe in a single move or when you have multiple foes and one of your friends a couple squares away is in trouble and needs an easier target.

I personally like to have options, so things that can soften up a particular foe for everyone is pretty great use of a standard action. Situational but not an uncommon situation. I also didn't want a lot of overlap with the Hag Riven.

I recommend it simply because even though it's clearly an 80s movie, much of the motif involved clearly comes from old world traditions and/or Catholic Church's stuff.

You should probably skip the sequels. Well, Warlock 3 has it's moments in that it's just so bad. =)

I was excited by the Malice Binder when I saw the description...it's the Investigator archetype. Not certain what to think now that I see it...

** spoiler omitted **

It is very original, IMO.

When I wrote it, I really had the witch hunter from Warlock in mind. Not 100% sure it made it through in translation but that's what I was hoping for. Fun classic movie if you've not seen it.

Yeah I've been trying to slip the Hag Riven into something since the Advanced Race Guide came out. I had this idea for someone who was saved mid transformation and had all these weird hag qualities but hadn't lost her mind yet. The pic for her is utterly terrifying. I think people are going to like the archetype quite a bit. Was really happy to work on those archetypes.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

The two aren't really related. =/ I'd make a new thread so it doesn't get lost in this one.

If you guys could all call their customer support and let them know we're a legit site or whatever reason things aren't working there, please do. They won't really let us do much without a u-verse account.

I've run Traceroute through Terminal, Network Utility, and my router software and I keep ending up at 65.116.154.6 right before it stalls.

I still find it weird that this is the only site giving me trouble and that this wasn't an issue until now.

That's kind of concerning, actually. When you run traceroute, it does say:

traceroute to paizo.com (70.35.123.53)

No reason it should be going where it's going.

We've cleared the problems I was seeing and it should start fixing itself overnight. I'm watching it through the day.

Site's a little slow, but steady. I think download bandwidth is going to be the biggest problem. Expect it to be a little slow for the first day but as people get their books, should clear right up. We'll see how it goes. I'll be watching things. But pretty pleased with it so far. Kind of expected to get slashdotted for the first 30 minutes or so.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Should be fixed now.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

OK. I kicked it. Please let me know if you see anything else. Thank you!

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Will fix when i get in.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Yeah. That should now be better.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Should be better now a couple of things didn't get the message that things had changed.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

Hmmm. Pushed a few buttons and should be back to normal in a couple of hours.

Silver Crusade System Administrator

I've kicked some things. Should be working better now.

I just noticed this today, but I don't recall the last time I searched.

Otherwise the site is working fine for me.

I'm headed up to Seattle today to hang out with a friend this weekend. Anybody have any good suggestions for what to do while I'm up there?

My suggestion for touristy crap is to go do the Underground Tour in downtown Seattle near Pioneer Square. There's a great cajun place just around the corner there, Marcela's. The guy that owns it is a transplant from new orleans where he was a host for many years. He picked up right up where he left off with his own place and they do some pretty great food. They do bananas foster at the table and it's worth it to share with a friend or just have it all to yourself.

You can walk around downtown at night and head to the white horse tavern for interesting people and conversation. Or head up to capital hill for some of the more LGBTQI friendly places bars and hole in the walls.
