For the last 24 hours or so, when editing a Starfinder Society character, clicking the button to set an avatar takes me to an error page (big blue golem).

I love animal instinct barbarians from a flavor standpoint, but I'm worried about how my bull-instinct barbarian will work against flying creatures. It seems likely within a certain level band that enemies may be able to fly before PCs can. In that case, what is an animal-instinct barbarian supposed to do? Once he's raging, he's no longer allowed to use weapons, but doesn't have any sort of inherent ranged attack. The short answer is 'don't rage when fighting flying critters', but (a)you don't always know they will fly before they do, and (b)You're not left with much if rage is taken away.

TL;DR What should an Animal Instinct Barbarian do vs. flying creatures?

Looking at the spell summon plant or fungus (CRB 376), at level 1, just like with summon animal, you summon a creature of level -1. The problem is there are no plant or fungus creatures of level -1 in the bestiary. That's a real bummer for a level 1 leaf druid. In a home game I would either (a) let the player summon a level 0 leshy, or (b) use a modified Weak adjustment on a level 0 leshy. Would it be possible to get some sort of option for PFS that makes this spell usable as a level 1 spell?

The PFS boons purchasable with Playtest Points now list a cost increase after the first purchase, which is a good update. The listed increase, though, doesn't match the actual increase, at least for the one I've purchased thus far. The 'Experienced Adventurer' boon (start a character at 2nd level) says the starting price is 12 points and that it doubles after each purchase. After purchasing one, however, there is now a listed price of 48 points, 4x the starting price.

I just purchased an 'Experienced Adventurer' boon for one of my characters using Playtest Points. The system worked fine, and it shows up fine at the bottom of the page. What caught my eye, though, is that the listed price has now changed from 12 points to 48 points. Is this a bug? If not, and this is intentional, it would be great to have that listed somewhere on that page. I likely would not have selected that boon yet if I knew it would cause the price to increase 4x for future instances.

If I'm also signed up for The Fangwood Thieves in another slot is that going to be the same scenarios (If so I'll drop that one and find something else then)?

We will use this thread for passing Aid Tokens. I will post the starting locations of the tokens here and in the appropriate discussion threads. When you are ready to pass them on, reply to the post here and change the info, then copy the same post into the appropriate discussion thread. See an example HERE.

If you wish to pass a token to a table on another platform for which you don't have an account, post here and ask for assistance in passing it, and I will do so.

    Please use the following PbP posting conventions in this thread. Remove the spaces I left in the tags to make them functional:

  • Description using regular text.
  • "In character speech, using the [b ] [/b ] tags."
  • Unspoken character thoughts using the [i ] [/i ] tags.
  • Out of character commentary using the [ooc ] [/ooc ] tags.

    Example:

    "Sure, I'm ready to go" Jan says, nervously looking around. I hope no one notices my socks are mismatched today. I always imagine Jan's voice to sound like Tina from Bob's Burgers.

    Typed, that looks like the following (again, removing the spaces):
    [b ]"Sure, I'm ready to go"[/b ] Jan says, nervously looking around. [i ]I hope no one notices my socks are mismatched today.[/i ] [ooc ]I always imagine Jan's voice to sound like Tina from [i ]Bob's Burgers[/i ].[/ooc ]

    -----

    Dice-rolling is done using the dice tags. For example, if I want to roll an attack with a longbow, and I have an attack bonus of 4, I would type the following, replacing the { brackets with [ brackets:

    {dice=longbow}1d20+4{/dice}
    {dice=damage}1d8{/dice}

    which will display as:

    longbow: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11
    damage: 1d8 ⇒ 2

    To add the effects of the Point-Blank Shot feat and a bless spell, I would type:

    {dice=longbow, pbs, {i}bless{/i}}1d20+4+1+1{/dice}
    {dice=damage, pbs}1d8+1{/dice}

    longbow, pbs, bless: 1d20 + 4 + 1 + 1 ⇒ (19) + 4 + 1 + 1 = 25
    damage, pbs: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

    By including pbs and bless in the description and typing 1d20+4+1+1 in the dice roller rather than 1d20+6, you are showing me at a glance how your math breaks down, which allows me to easily understand where you bonuses are coming from. This allows the game to flow more smoothly, and is always appreciated by PbP GMs.
