It's a good thing that Aroden's disappearance has had no effect on the efficacy of prophecy in Golarion.

Also, unless I missed something significant, talismans still look completely underwhelming.

That's too bad - I've run a couple of the APs through and not even once have my players used talismans.

What changes did they make?

Looking at the other major VTT platforms offering this for sale, it doesn't seem exorbitantly priced for Foundry.

I bought it yesterday, registered the code on the Foundry site, but it doesn't seem to be listed under the Premium Module content in Foundry.

I also don't see the PDF in my account on the Paizo site.

A reinstall of Foundry solved the issue. Strangely the PDF is in my Downloads section, just buried deep in the list of PDFs (seems like it was grouped by original release date, not purchase date)

What would you like to see in a Foundry module that we're not currently doing?

I would like Sigil to set up a github page where bugs could be reported and where updates are listed. When there is an update to modules, I really dislike being taken to the Paizo store page and not being able to see what was fixed.

Generally speaking, I think the Foundry crew does a much better job of module creation / conversion - I'd like to see more PF2e modules from them.

The cottage rolls initiative as a triggered reaction (as written) and the reaction is not 'killed', but 'defeated'.

In my case the cottage goes next in the initiative order after the player that downed Taviah, and immediately uses its 3 actions to activate all three areas of the cottage. Because no one is flying or hanging from the ceiling, everyone makes a DC24 Basic Save against 2d8+4 acid damage. Taviah is already absorbed into the stomach. She should not have been capturable.

Doh! Good call on that

I'm glad you flagged this. My characters will be meeting Iron Taviah in one or two sessions.

Unless I'm interpreting the rules wrong, I don't see the acid damage happening immediately as it would be rolled into the initiative order. Having said that, if the acid strikes before anyone in the party has the opportunity to heal/battle medicine/soothe etc. than that could be extremely problematic.

Perhaps instead of rolling for initiative, the cottage drops into the same initiative order as when Iron Taviah is defeated, giving everyone a round of actions if someone is unconscious to act and creating a bit of tension with a description of digestive juices flowing from the walls, beginning to pool etc.

ANother thing to consider (depending on your group) is what happens if Iron Taviah gets taken alive. My group really wanted answers regarding the poison plot and used non-lethal damage to capture her.

You just click on it, and it appears inside your token circle. You just move it around. And you can save the token as png, jpg, webp, tiff, or whatever. It's fantastic.

You can also export all the images in a PDF to a folder with a single click - very handy stuff.

I would go Foundry, no questions.

I have both (FGU - ran Age of Ashes, Foundry - ran Abomination Vaults, currently running Blood Lords). Foundry isn't perfect (I think FGU does condition / duration tracking better) but Foundry is just so much easier to run and use (especially for players - no extra downloads for the client, interface is far more intuitive) - plus all the OGL content is already built in.

I buy the Foundry packages for the AP books to have the maps and scenes preset.

The biggest downside of Foundry is figuring out what modules you want to use to enhance play experience and getting used to using a new VTT.

But still, for $50 it's the best VTT experience available IMO - especially for PF2e.

Will the Foundry VTT module for Gatewalkers have token images for the monsters in Book 1 that currently don't have images in the Bestiaries?

Looking at some of the previous packages I've purchased, every monster in the book gets art (token / portrait). Pretty sure it doesn't update the compendium entry (my recollection is that the Foundry Premium packages from Sigil just import all the actors to the actors tab and uses the actor entry rather than the compendium entry).

Seems like this PDF is almost an order of magnitude bigger in file size compared to a lot of previous books. What's the explanation for that? Are all the trim images super HQ?

I noticed the same thing - single file PDF is about 170mb in size.

Geezus people, stop having bombing war in the review scores :'D I want to read other people's opinion on this x'D

Thanks for your review and the information in it! I haven't delved into this book enough yet to have an informed opinion, but I appreciate your thoughts on what works well in the adventure.

Certainly much more useful than 1-star (or 5-star) reviews with no context as to what gave it that rating.

There's a nasty trend where a class or ancestry releases with few options and feats and then rarely gets any support afterward.

On top of it, I'm not a fan of the mini adventures that appear in Book of the Dead and Dark Archive. They don't even use the books' content and game mechanics. Book of the Dead had tons of neat new undead monsters, and the adventure is mostly just run-of-the-mill zombies and skeletons.

Completely agree with this.

I've been pondering this myself for my campaign. My current plan is that I'm just going to reskin the Elixir of Life to an Elixir of Unlife, swap the positive healing for negative healing and give it an Uncommon rarity and treat it as a common formula / item in Geb.

Based on the healing difficulties in Geb, this seems like the easiest route to go. I don't think it's really necessary to reverse-engineer the formula and would treat it like any other alchemical item (for Quick Alchemy or Reagents). For regular crafting, I'd use the base rules for crafting consumables.

I got an update in my Foundry for the Blood Lords Basis Pack. Since this is where the package link goes, does anyone know what was updated?

Where do we report errors in the module? The Foundry Github doesn't list Outlaws of Alkenstar or Blood Lords as being reportable under the Premium Content listing.

I mean in the end, all roleplaying game products are that. Nobody needs an RPG product to live. The developers also are living in a recession and also deserve to make money. These are luxury purchases, not necessities.

Totally true, but as a subscriber, it stings that functionally I get to pay 100% more for just the foundry module than if I were to just buy the PDF and module outside of a subscription.

Hopefully this will be looked at in a timely manner after GenCon.

The price for the Foundry module without having bought the compilation PDF is $60. The price if you bought the compilation PDF separately (or got it by pre-ordering the hardcover book and being an AP subscriber) would be $21. Purchasing the Foundry module also allows you to download the compilation PDF for free. The individual PDFs are for a different product and not connected to the Foundry module.

Thank you.

I'm confused as to what the pricing is for this product.

For a new user looking to buy the Foundry Module, the cost is $60.00 and they get the Foundry module + a copy of the hardcover PDF.

If someone had bought the hardcover PDF would the price for the Foundry module be $21.00?

What is the price for the foundry module for a user who bought the 3 individual PDFs but not the hardcover PDF?

But this product is not the Adventure Paths you've already bought. This is a new product, one into which likely hundreds of hours of work went into from the Foundry team. That's what you're paying for is that work, not the Adventure Path. Nobody is stopping you from using PDF to Foundry with your existing AP pdfs. That option still works. If you want the added bonuses of the Foundry module you can pay the people that put in the hours of work to develop it.

Disclaimer: I, like the first poster, was able to purchase the Foundry Module for $21.00 - still not sure if that was intentional or an error.

I think the point of contention for most people isn't the price of the Foundry module, it's having to repurchase the compiled PDF despite having purchased the individual PDFs. IMO those who have the original PDFs and want to run the official module don't want to purchase the compiled PDF just to get access to it. You can buy the individual modules in Fantasy Grounds for $7.00 each if you have the PDFs. It's a shame that you can't do the same with Foundry for this particular product.

I understand that there is an issue with the API that makes it easier to check for the hardcover PDF rather than the individual modules so my hope is that this is a one-time issue.

From the looks of Outlaws of Alkenstar, modules will be released for the individual modules going forward, which is good, but the Ruby Phoenix compilation is going to bring this issue back up again.

My opinion on this is that if future releases for Foundry follow the model of the Alkenstar AP all is good. I'm happy to pay the creators of the Foundry module. If I have to pay Paizo twice for the the PDFs to gain access to the Foundry modules that is a pretty big disincentive to maintaining my subscriptions.

All that said - the Foundry module is amazing and I love what the creators have done with it.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber

I'm a little confused as to what the price is supposed to be for the Foundry module.

I'm a subscriber, so I have the individual PDFs of the original release, but not the hardcover. I bought the Foundry module yesterday and it was $21.00 and included a free copy of the hardcover compilation.

The $21.00 for the Foundry module seems like a great price (if memory serves, it's about par with what Fantasy Grounds charged for the module if you owned the PDF already). The content looks great and I'm glad I bought it BUT if I had to purchase the hardcover PDF just to get access to the Foundry module when I already bought the individual PDFs, I would have been pretty upset.

I imagine this is a one-off thing due to the timing of the release of official content for Foundry and the release of the hardcover. Hopefully going forward, digital content for Foundry will be sold with each individual release rather than compilations of recent product.

If you have bought the original 3 pdfs at Paizo, do you get a discount for the Foundry module?

I asked the same question and I believe the answer to that one is unfortunately no.

I imagine it's partly a technical issue (to verify that the purchaser has all three volumes probably requires some specific programming for the webstore / link). For me as an end user - it makes me question the value of my subscriptions - I don't like that I have to rebuy the same content to get access to the Foundry module. Hopefully this is a one-off thing.

While I think this is awesome in general, I'm just about done with the second book for AV so this is just shy of a complete waste of money for me which disappoints me immensely because of the amount of time that goes into setting up each floor.

Is there ANY way that the AV Foundry module can get split up so it'll be a little cheaper for the people currently running it?

I'm in the same boat (just finished book 2 with one group and book 1 with another). I'm happy to buy the complete package but I'm a little perturbed that it is sounding like I would also have to purchase the compiled PDF despite owning the 3 books and PDFs through my subscription.

It would be nice if there was some options for the people who subscribe to the AP line to get access to this without having to buy the hardcover PDF. I'm not asking that it be free or anything, but subscribers wanting to purchase the Foundry module shouldn't be punished for being "early supporters" of the AP line.

Does This Mean I’ll Need to Buy The Bestiaries Again To Use the Bestiary Monsters?

The data for the bestiary monsters is covered under the Community Use Policy (and our agreement with Paizo) and are available for free as part of the Pathfinder Second Edition game system. We think this level of supported content in the free system brings a lot of players to the community, and we see no reason to change that.

We know there are a lot of dedicated GMs and Players out there with shelves full of Pathfinder books who don’t want to re-purchase content they already own. The simplest answer to this question is: you will not need to pay to access anything that the PF2e game system currently includes for free. Our focus will remain on giving other reasons to buy our products by offering a way to experience that content that isn’t available anywhere else.

Thanks!

What will happen to PDF to Foundry now? It would be a shame if this partnership just results in the commoditization of something that was previously a free community resource. (Assuming you own a legal PDF)

I believe the author of that module (fryguy) announced that Quest for the Frozen Flame was the last AP that was going to be supported by PDF2Foundry and there would be no further updates to it.

My question is will this change any of the community resources available for PF2 on Foundry? Will I still be able to use all the OGL content as created by the community or will we have to purchase open content to use it?

Edit: Ninja'd by several others!

I mixed Menace, Trouble and Abomination Vaults together for my group.

Ran Menace first, Chapter 1 of Trouble next, ran the Deadlight event from Chapter 2 of Abomination Vaults as the introduction to what was going on out in the ruins, let the group explore the upper levels of the ruins and introduced the events of Chapter 2 and 3 from Trouble whenever they were in town.

As I understand it they are basically like an extra spell slot for the spell contained in the wand, usable once per day (and you can push it to try using it one extra time).

Otherwise, there are no charges for them.

Nice! Makes me wish there'd been room for the version of this map that I created when building the 10 levels, but alas, there wasn't.

One thing to keep in mind is that level 1 is on a hill, and level 2 is closer to "ground level," though. Remember that the water surface level of the swamp is a few feet below the level of most of the floor on level 2, after all. (That bit got a bit muddled in the published maps, since the presence of steep slopes on the hills surrounding the uppermost level didn't translate well on the top-down view.)

I don't suppose you'd ever share that version somewhere? Now that the product is published, etc.
I can't parse this, because there's a boat and a dock in the level 1 map that connects to the boathouse. So if the water level is that low, the dock must be like, 15 feet above the water and the boat is floating? Is my brain just not working here?

I described the dock extending from Gauntlight island as being about 10 feet above the water level with the boat tied off to the pilings and a rope dangling from the upper level of the dock.

IMO e-mail is the better approach for dealing with customer service issues. I would imagine it would be easier for the CS reps to have a singular mail queue to deal with than having to monitor forums and email separately.

The easiest hack to fix this if it's something that's impacting game enjoyment is to change the scale for all maps. Swap them over to one square = 10 feet.

This is definitely the easiest solution (I've been contemplating increasing it to 1 square = 20 feet just to put more room in for maneuverability).

It would be nice though if future maps and combat encounters were geared a little more towards the expanded mobility that PF2 encourages.

Here's a question that came up in my last game.

Character casts Spell Immunity on themselves and selects Dispel Magic as the spell to be warded against.

I'm not sure if this is a valid choice or not. According to dispel magic the target is "1 spell effect or unattended magic item". According the PRD Spell Immunity "attempts to counteract that spell whenever spell immunity's target is the target of the named spell or in that spell's area."

So, the question is: Will Spell Immunity with Dispel Magic as it's warded spell allow a character to make a counteract check against having Dispel Magic cast on their long / short term buffs?

What do you think?

I'm prepping this section to run in my monthly game and it looks pretty brutal. Group is going to be coming into it at 6th level (They basically followed the north bank of the river during the exploration component).

I plan on dropping a lot of hints about this being a dangerous fight, but looking at the vrock by itself, I'm a little worried about a straight up TPK if they engage it in battle. Average party ACs are 24-25 with to hit bonuses of +14/+15.

I anticipate a lot of crits by the vrock and a lot of misses by the party....

According to the AONPRD you can take a skill feat with one of your general feat selection, but you couldn't take a general feat that lacks the skill trait with a skill feat. Don't have my books handy so I can't see what the text is in the core rulebook.

Relevant quote from the PRD:

"This section specifies the levels at which your character gains general feats. Most classes grant a general feat at 3rd level and every 4 levels thereafter. At each of these levels, you can select any general feat (including skill feats) as long as your character qualifies for it. More information can be found in Chapter 5: Feats (page 254)."
