Hello,

I was just looking through my future subscription orders and I noticed the next Adventure Path book listed in my subscriptions are #139 for Pathfinder and #13 for Starfinder. I don't see a placed order containing Pathfinder Adventure Path #138 or Starfinder Adventure Path #12. Could I get a confirmation that those orders will be generated at the normal time?

Thanks

Hello,

I started a subscription to the Modules line a while back with Order 4491896, and it notes that Cradle of Night was added to another order, but I don't see it in my sidecart or upcoming shipments for September. I also can't tell if I was charged for it when I originally added the subscription or if I have yet to be charged. Could you check the status of this product?

Thanks,
Matt

Did anyone else's player have a really hard time with the Lucky Bones? The first floor was mostly fine, but the lower floor alternated between putting my players to sleep and nearly killing them outright.

For one, I've never met a single player that likes unexpected underwater combat. Sure, with a few party builds it won't be an issue, but the swim checks made the skum fights drag on forever, and my players almost TPKed with the Shell Sentinels. I get making a challenge, but my players almost walked out of the room when their knowledge checks revealed DR/bludgeoning after they explicitly prepared piercing weapons to account for underwater penalties. My players aren't bad in combat, but the smuggler's tunnels had them all checked out until I shifted a few things around and made it slightly easier to drain the tunnels.

It's a little late now, but I'm curious what other people did to make this less of a slog?

You just brought up a really big point of note. I think I am going to remove the DR the Shell sentinels have if my group doesn't want to purchase Freedom of Movement Scrolls. My group is taking their time with the Lucky Bones, that is: after they thought playing Lorelu's game was dumb and forced a combat in which she threw two of them into the lap of Pharasma. I will post a follow up after they move into the LB further.
Have I misunderstood how magic item purchasing works in kintargo? Doesn’t military law restrict what can be bought ? Or does not apply to scrolls and potione?

I was thinking the same thing. Of course my group would have bought Freedom of Movement scrolls if they were available. My group has been asking for a lot of things to be available for purchase, and they would be really suspicious if some things just arrived in stock.

Has anyone come up with alternate benefits from allying with the noble houses for groups that aren't using the Rebellion subsystem?

I think all of these points are pros for me, rather than cons. I think PF had more bloat than I enjoyed (yes, it can all be limited, but my player's are too enthusiastic about obscure materials to explicitly limit which books are in play with any effectiveness).

I don't think the resource management is worse, and in many areas it is not only smoother, but more engaging. Overall, it seems like SF scrapped the legacy material that made PF clunky, and I personally have a harder time going back to PF.

One doesn't have to be a GM to help with rules questions. I have several players in my games that know rules as well as I do, so for rules issues I continue with plot while they help less experienced players.

If the second GM is there to help with world-building/plot/etc, they don't even need to be at the table, unless they're doing this and helping with rules, but even then, it's hard to do multiple things at the same time at the same table- most players don't want plot to continue while they're dealing with a rule issue- and most likely you'll end up tag-teaming, rather than efficiently handling two problems at once.

Hello,

I subscribed to the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Scenarios a few weeks ago, and the order was created and I recieved the first three scenarios without issue. However, when Scenario #1-4 was released, instead of creating a separate order number like most subscriptions, it added to the original order (Order 4422394) and has been pending for several weeks. Is this just how long SFSRPG Scenarios take to become downloadable, or is it somehow stuck?

Thanks

If we've already preordered the Core Rulebook, is there a way to specify that when adding a subscription so we don't buy it twice?

Hello,

I would like to temporarily cancel my Pathfinder Campaign Setting subscription.

Thanks!

Hello,

I changed my subscription shipping address, but I didn't do it in time for the creation of Order 4260628, which is now set to my current address. Could the address for this order be switched to the same address as the rest of my future subscription orders?

Thanks


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Hi,

If you can ship them on their own now, and they'll still count as the last items of the subscription (i.e. pdf included), that would be great. Let me know if that won't be possible.

Thanks!

Hi,

I was under the impression that my January order would be unaffected by cancelling now. I actually wanted to keep the two Player Companion books currently in my pending order, and cancel after those.

Thanks!

Hello,

Could you temporarily cancel my subscription to the
Pathfinder Campaign Setting? I will resume the subscription in a few months.

Thanks!

Most of the books I've seen that use superscripts have a key somewhere near the front of the book.

Hello,

I'd like to unsubscribe to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. I'll keep all my other subscriptions though.

Thanks!

Perfect, that's exactly what I was looking for. I really like the idea of giving each PC a specialized battalion.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

So, I don't know if people are still responding regularly in this thread, but I had a question about Mass Combat roles (since my players really enjoy the Army aspect). It's suggested that the players can pick either a PC or an NPC to be the commander of their army, but it doesn't mention anything about a General. I assume the reason for that is that the General is really just a figurehead without any mechanical benefit (almost a direct quote from Ultimate Campaign). My question is whether I should suggest that my Leadership-focused player be a commander of one Army, and then use NPCs for (I assume) future armies, or if I should suggest that he be the General more for flavor than actual mechanical benefit. I understand that this is mostly a matter of preference, more for the player than anything else, but I think being a General sounds cooler and more thematically appropriate for Mythic Heroes, and that's balanced against wanting to make sure he gets an actual mechanical benefit from Leadership, etc.

May I also have a free copy, please?

The year is left fluid so it can be changed as needed, but the current year in Golarion is 4716 (because in real life it's 2016). If you want to stick to when it was published (2012-2013) the start year would be 4712.

I mean, what if I am running a game, and some player has some odd thing from a Chronicle Sheet, that I need to read, to know where he got it from?

Can I read it?

Can I play the Scenario, from which the Chronicle Sheet I just read came from?

As a number of people pointed out, if you're running the game there's nothing wrong with reading the Chronicle, and if you remember it later, you just tell the person running the game. The goal is to minimize using metagame knowledge, and you don't seem to be actively metagaming, so it isn't a problem.

The problem is for people who have no other reason to read the Chronicle sheet than to metagame.

So my PCs just cleared out the Fort and found area B33. They are in the process of hiring some stone masons to help rebuild the fort. I assume that they are going to fix the hallway leading up to B33.

My question really is where would the Eel hide if B33 is not as secure for him as it is meant to be in the adventure?

The Eel hides in a dell in the forest near the base. That's mentioned in the sabotage section on page 45.

I ordered an item listed as backordered (Emerald Spire superdungeon Flip-mat multipack) on March 3rd, and I know backordered items can take months to restock, but does anyone know approximately when this item will be available again?

By leaving her undefined, though, the cool thing about Haetanga is you can stat her up at whatever CR you need in order to put some fear into your PCs at whatever level they encounter her. So, the way she's presented in the actual text gives her an air of mystery and a mechanical openendedness which you can exploit however you see fit.

Perfect, that's exactly what I was thinking of doing! Thanks!

Does anyone else think it's odd that Paeta reports back to Haetanga, but Haetanga never shows up in the adventure? My players have set up a base in the fort without having killed(or even discovered) Paeta. I just think it would make sense after killing several Phase Spiders and allowing one to report to Paeta that Paeta would call in more Animate Dreams and Phase Spiders from Haetanga (or even Haetanga herself, which is mentioned in Paeta's stat block). Has anyone used Haetanga as an additional encounter?
