Thank you everyone! That's exactly the kind of advice that I was hoping for.

If you coming from 1e I would watch out for:

* Flat footed is a penalty on the enemy's AC, not a bonus to attack
Er, it was never a bonus to attack, even in P1E.

It really only affects flanking (flanked opponents are flat-footed as opposed to getting the +2 bonus to hit from PF1)

The world guide was in my digital content, but only as a "1 pdf per chapter" version. Is there a pdf for the whole book, like the CRB and Bestiary, and if yes where can I find it?!?

Same issue for myself :)

It looks like the only classes that don't get 1st level class feat are bard, cleric, druid and sorcerer.

Depends on what (if anything) you think is wrong with PF1.

Speaking for myself, I think PF1 is drowning under the weight of all the supplements, player companions and subsystems introduced over a 10 year run so I'm looking forward to running PF2.

I think it is but time will tell.

I had to log out of the Paizo site, close browser and then login again and it worked.

So I've been browsing the core rulebook as I try to cram the ruleset for a weekend game and I'm a little unclear on how non-lethal damage works (and I could have missed it as I haven't fully read the book yet).

Is it just another damage type like bludgeoning and slashing? Is it healed as regular damage? Does it track like it did in Pathfinder 1?

Another subscription question.

I am now subscribed to 5 subscriptions. Do I get Pathfinder Society Scenarios free? I don't have to subscribe to that right, it just happens?

Happened automatically on mine, but I believe I had to go into my account options to select which society (PF vs SF) to receive.

I currently have several subscriptions, Player Companion being one. If I do nothing, will it migrate to Lost Omens automatically or just end?

I have the same question as Corbain. What subscriptions roll over into what subscriptions?

I have the following subscriptions:

PF Adventure Path (should roll over into the new PF2 AP subscription)
PF Campaign Setting (rolls over into Lost Omens subscription?)
PF Cards (Obsolete / discontinued?)
PF Modules (rolls over to Pathfinder Adventure subscription?)
PF Pawns (continues to be a subscription?)
PF Player Companion (Obsolete / discontinued)
PF Roleplaying Game (continues to be a subscription)

With this list, if I were to subscribe to the Accessories subscription I would qualify for both the free Society adventures?

Any updates on the Pathfinder Accessories subscriptions yet?

I would like to order the Condition Cards and the GM Screen to ship with my RPG/AP/Module subscription and am not sure if I should hold off or add it as a preorder now.

Thanks!

It's a little odd to me that there still hasn't been an announcement yet that PDFs will continue to be a subscriber perk. As a big selling point of the subscriptions, why hold off on confirming it?

On topic, I really dislike the "Age of Lost Omens".

Super flavored concept that has absolutely no effect or real relevance in game. Every time I read something about a prophecy in Golarion product my first thought is "How does the death of Aroden affect this" and then realize it doesn't.

I'll reserve my opinion on Resonance until the full playtest rules come out.

One quibble though with the staff of healing description though. Cabochons are not gems. Description should read: "...multitude of cabochon rubies."

Other than that I'm looking forward to seeing how this all works in play!


Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, Pawns, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber

I've recently been involved in a game with several new players and I have to say the character level vs spell level issue has been... an issue.

I'm on old hand at the game, so I have no problem with spell levels vs. character level, but some of the new players I've seen don't seem to get the difference (someone pointed this out with the "I'm 9th level, so I can cast wish" comment).

I like the idea of calling spell levels circles instead. It's evocative and in my experiences with new players it will make more sense to them.

EDIT: Tiers is good too!


Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, Pawns, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber

Isn't the curse of the throne that no ruler ever produced an heir? (The Red Throne of Impotence as my players have refered to it).


Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, Pawns, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber

I'd happily pay $60+ for a larger first Bestiary. I also have to second the idea of prioritizing monsters from Adventure Path chapterss to supplement the core monsters in the book. More importantly, it would be really nice to have it available on release day with the core rules.

I'm not quite sure what you're looking for here.

It may be that PF2 is not going to be a system you would enjoy playing.

Speaking for myself, I'm interested in the changes I've read / heard about, but I'm trying not to get too excited until the play test rules are released in August. Until then there isn't really enough information for me to make a totally informed decision.

I'm fine with alignment. It's sounds like it's a sacred cow that will live on in the 2nd edition.

I would like to see spells like Unholy Blight and others that affect only certain alignments disappear (or be reworked) though. Last 3 campaigns I've run, the majority of players are playing neutral characters to avoid being affected by spells and effects like this.

The fact that your players are 'gamifying' morality to avoid in game mechanics sounds like it has added depth and nuance to your game that help you plumb the depths of the moral fiber.

Or the opposite - and it's yet another example of why alignment tied to mechanics should go.

While I agree with many things you've said in this thread, this comment felt a little disparaging.

My players want a beer & pretzel "kick in the door, kill monsters and take their stuff" kind of game. They're not really interested in exploring morality and delving into ethics, social issues and mores. I would enjoy running that type of game but it's not for my particular group.

Obviously our experience and desires with the game don't trump anyone else but it is a valid play style and I feel that the mechanics of the system could be cleaned up in this regard.

Edit: corrected a spelling mistake.

Hi Nyarlathotep,

I'm sorry to see that we missed your post for so long!

Add what's in your cart now to your save for later section. Add the other items you want to your cart.

Let us know once that's done, and we can combine them and submit them from our side. We can make sure the code discount gets on there for you.

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply Sharaya.

I've gone ahead and removed old saved items, moved the Season 8 and 9 scenarios into the saved for later and shopping cart. Please go ahead and finalize the order out. (My CC should be on file).

Thanks again!

As long as the numbers are kept to +/-10 (or even +/-5) I'm okay with it. At my table we spend far more time trying to keep track of bonuses stacking than the dice rolling. For us, it wouldn't take much longer to say "Goblin rolls a 19 to hit, what's your AC? A 9? Sweet, prepare your backup character as the goblin inflicts x damage". I don't really see it slowing things down a whole lot (of course YMMV).


Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories, Pawns, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber

Good afternoon,

I'm hoping to use my RAIN18 discount coupon today to purchase season 8 & 9 Pathfinder Society scenarios and I seem to have hit a limit to how many items I can add to my cart at once (31 items).

What would be the recommended method to adding all of season 8 and what is available of season 9 and use the discount coupon?

Thanks!

I"m looking for some advice on which AP to run for a group of my friends, three of which I've been playing with since high school (almost 35 years now) one of which has an attention deficit problem, another who has been playing for over 20 years, and one of my friends wives who is brand new to roleplaying.

We tried playing Kingmaker but the sandboxy nature of it and the wash, rinse, repeat of the exploration factor soon had them bored. So, to that end I'm looking for something a bit more railroady. Given the nature of the group I'd also like to avoid anything with a sub-system involved with it (ala Kingmaker).
I was thinking Mummy's Mask or Shattered Star might be a good fit but wanted to see if I'm overlooking any other AP's that might fit the bill.

Dotting for future

I always felt Aroden's death was a cool concept that never went anywhere. I'm not sure if it's due to the timeframe (only 100 years ago) or if it's because his death has no effect on the world. Okay, yes it had an effect on the world as it was the catalyst for change in governments (Cheliax) or weather (Eye of Abendego), but aside from some one-off changes in the recent past, there is no effect in the current day.

I feel like his death would have much more impact to players if it had an actual game effect (maybe divination magic shouldn't work). The fact that prophecies are broken means nothing since there are no long term prophecies to be affected, they never seem to factor in to adventures or other campaign materials (and I'm not sure how prophecy would even work in a world where divination magic is available). Because there is no game effect to his death he has become entirely inconsequential to my players and myself.

It's a shame. I sure like the concept of a god's death.

Hi There,

With the looming strike / lockout by Canada Post and its Postal Workers Union, (the date has been pushed back a few times, but currently expected to start on July 9th, 2016), I'm wondering what Paizo's plans are for redirecting lettermail (which would likely be USPS from your perspective) to other providers, or freezing the mailouts from the warehouse so mail doesn't get frozen at the border as we wait for CanadaPost to get back to work?

I recognize that other shipping/postal providers have different costs, so I'm curious what the next cheapest provider is that you work with, so that I can determine if I want to eat that cost during the postal event so I can get my subscriptions and other orders, or just freeze the outbound shipping of my orders (including my subs) until the event has ended.

Curious about this myself, should I just have my subscriptions held while waiting for Canada Post to go back to work?

Good afternoon Paizonians!

I got my shipping notification for Order #3950593 a couple of days ago. When I go into the My Downloads section of the website, it shows all my PDFs as normal with the exception of the PDF for "Pathfinder Adventure Path #107: Scourge of the Godclaw (Hell's Vengeance 5 of 6) (PFRPG)". Instead of listing the two usual options (One File per Chapter & Single File), it only lists once and it's the one file per chapter version.

I'd like to download the single file version. Could someone there give the appropriate server or application a kick and/or the requisite abuse to update the files?

Thanks!

I'll second this. If you live in Europe, I don't see any reason to subsribe. The discount doesn't come close to offsetting the shipping fees. I don't know how much it costs to ship to other continents, but I guess anything else than north America, isn't big enough as a market to justify distribution centers.
It probably won't make you feel any better, but tbe shipping to Canada is also pretty high. High enough that we also lose out big time if we subscribe

I hear you on that one. Last Paizo parcel to me was $109.25 (USD) worth of product and $37.50 (USD) worth of freight and then an extra $20.00 (CDN) for UPS to deliver it to me. It's starting to get hard justifying the expense.

$212.00 Canadian Pesos total, $70.00 of it for shipping.

Action classes in order of least restrictive to most restrictive:

It makes little sense to say that an available action to the left of the action type normally required can't be expended in place of an action to the right is ignoring common sense and is embodying the worst stereotypes of the rules lawyer.

And yet you're wrong when it comes to Swift actions.

You get only one Swift per turn, that's it.

Source? I've never played in a game that wouldn't let me use a standard action to take a swift.

http://paizo.com/prd/combat.html

Not sure what the anchor is to get you to the appropriate section, but under the "action type" it says:

Swift Action: A swift action consumes a very small amount of time, but represents a larger expenditure of effort and energy than a free action. You can perform only a single swift action per turn.

Edit: Ninja'd!

After reading another post here regarding gift certificates, I'm considering getting myself a couple while the exchange rate is working in my favor.

Couple of quick questions:

1) Do gift certificates expire?
2) If I apply the certificate as a store credit, do I have a choice as to which orders to apply it to?
3) Is there a limit to how many gift certificates I can purchase/apply to my account?

Just curious why Paizo does not carry them when you carry their print products. Also does anyone know if Catalyst releases their PDFs on hard copy? Thanks.

While I hate to point anyone away from the store they are asking the question in. Their in-house store sells hardback/PDF bundles. Or were you asking about if they sold physical copies of their PDF only releases?

http://www.battlecorps.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=28

I would never recommend buying PDFs from Battlecorps directly. If they ever update their files, you have a limited window to grab the files. Same thing if you buy the PDF. If you don't download right away (or say forget that you bought something), you can't grab it later. I've been trying to get the updated PDFs of all the core rulebooks that I bought and can't because the download time window has expired.

Since you can't get the PDFs at Paizo, you're far better off to purchase from DTRPG.com

Just to throw my 2cp in.

Like the OP I would prefer each side to have a seperate image on it, I've bought a couple of the various flip-mats, so if I need blank sides I've got them. Cool maps that I don't have to draw though... that would be very handy.
