Yup, meant 192 (typo).

Dang, glanced right over the Bloodline portion, and didn't read it carefully. The sorcerer gets, access depending on Bloodline, to one of all the spell lists. This is way cool!

Thanks Rysky,

^^ This.

Back before my wife and I retired and I had a lot of subscriptions, I would see the package leave Paizo, get one update that it was en-route to NY and no updates till it shows up at my door, then all the updates come thru.

Don't worry about UPS-MI updates.

Chris, are you say that he is correct and that officially, PDFs come with the hard covers for subscriptions?

Computer Game Prologue:
You meet Swordlord Jamandi, go to your room to spend the night, and assassins attack. You work your way thru the manor, picking up some npcs and finally have a battle with the assassins in the great hall. You answer some questions and that determines which of the npcs come with you to Oleg Trading post. While you only get about 300 XP, after a brief encounter on the way to Oleg, and the fight(s) there you make 2nd level.

For those interested, a decent walk through is located LINK HERE

There are at least two ways to do this, probably more.

Way 1: Create an alias for each NPC under your main account. For instance, if George is an NPC in campaign ABC, I would create an Alias called "George (ABC)" under your "Daniel Penfold 351" main id and just use it when George is doing something.

Con: You end up with a ton of Alias that may only have a few posts.

Way 2: Which I use, is to get a picture of the NPC, usually taken from the adventure, and post in my Dropbox, or Google Drive, and link to it in the post. Saves the multiple alias issue.

Look HERE. Three of the top four Sticky posts pertain to PbP, both for players and GMs.

However to sum it up:

1) Look at the recruitment posts for games, HERE till you find one that you are interested in, and are still open for new submissions.

2) In the 1st or 2nd post (usually) in the thread, the GM will give guidelines / rules on how to create characters for submission. Follow this to the letter!

3) Keep up with the thread, especially if the GM has questions on your character, and also for the "drop dead" date for submissions, and when s/he will announce the lucky few to get in.

4) Don't give up. Expect to not get into the first few (dozen?) that you apply for since there are significantly more players than GMs.

Good Luck and Good Gaming.

    I have found that going to the Select Avatar page and slowly moving the cursor from left to right over the top row of avatars, makes the 2nd row show up correctly. Continue the slow moving cursor on the 2nd row causes the 3rd row to show up, etc.

    You can then use the "normal" click on a picture and it shows the select button and picture information.

    I found it better if I used the selection criteria on the left side "human", "male", "fighter" (or other criteria) to winnow down the choices to a manageable number of pictures.

    As an aside, those people complaining that they can't filter out the books they disallow at their table don't have much of a leg to stand on.

    What's this right here? Oh, it's all of the rules and player content from Alien Archive. Now not only do I not have to search through the book trying to find specific player options scattered everywhere, but I can simply set up a series of bookmarks or a similar online linking system for each book and direct my players to that.

    Oh wait, Blake ALREADY DID THAT. That right there is all of the main Pathfinder RPG line's rules and content all in one place, sorted by book. You just need to go to the SOURCES link in the left sidebar of the Archive. It's near the bottom.

    It's been that way for ages. People complaining about this stuff clearly haven't spent that much time in the Archives.

    You are trivializing folks real concerns, and real either loss of function or incorrect information.

    Examples:
    "legacy" Pathfinder PRD FEATS
    "new" Pathfinder PRD CRB Which feats are General, which are Combat, which are Item Creation, which are Meta Magic.

    "legacy" Pathfinder PRD SPELLS CRB, APG, Bard only
    "new" Pathfinder PRD (same as above URL) CRB Which are Bard. I can not show all CRB & APG at the same time.

    "legacy" Pathfinder PRD ROGUE
    "new" Pathfinder PRD (using "new" URL from above, click on Rogue) ROGUE I did not realize that PFS, Ultimate Wilderness, Advanced Race Guide, etc. were part of the Core Rulebook.

    While I hope that Blake works on restoring the lost function, splitting out various books rather than everything lumped together, till he and his team does that, it is still LOSS OF FUNCTION, INCORRECT INFORMATION.

    Now, many (most?) folks following this know the difference, newbies will have problem, and all of a sudden PbP games, as well as Home games have a lot more 'splaining to do.

    Congrats. I've been a huge fan of Archives of Nethys for my freelance work, so it's well-deserved.

    And I think the search function's been pretty much fine from what I can tell over the last couple years.

    My one request -- I wouldn't mind some *less* in-depth levels. For example, I wouldn't mind the old PRD's style of all the weapons in one list (so if I don't know off the top of my head if a weapon is simple/martial/exotic, I can just do a search on one page for the weapon and then see what category it is).

    I've actually been thinking about this for a while. Having an "All" version and one still split by Proficiency.

    This would be a good thing.

    I hope you will continue to read this thread, and respond to requests here as well.

    My PbP rules are CRB & APG only. So if someone does a source on CRB, all they get is a list of "topics", no detail, mostly not split up (aka simple/martial/exotic weapons). Same for APG. I would like to see this split up with "basic" information on each item.

    Also, source on CRB, Class Rogue. This lists Favored Class Options that are not part of the CRB. This becomes confusing, as well as not correct. Ultimate Wilderness, among others, is not in the CRB.

    While I think that some of the complaints are being presented in an aggressive manner, underneath the snark I believe that they have valid concerns.

    I hope that you can address some of these in the coming months.

    Ok, looking up the change from "corruption forge" to "purity forge", I found that I had overlooked a small detail. Even though Alikia failed the first time, that failure makes the DC 1 less, so the Spellcraft check of 35 (2nd day) works, and the forge is "redeemed".

    Once the forge is redeemed, it can be used to rework evil magic items into good magic items. An unholy weapon can be made into a holy weapon, for example, or a wand of unholy blight can be transformed into a wand of holy smite. However, some evil magic items don’t have an obvious good analogue. In such cases, I will pick an appropriate opposition item for the magic item to be redeemed into.

    To redeem a magic item, the redeemer must work as if she/he were crafting the item from scratch, yet the forge supplies much of the magic and energy for the process. Ignore any spell or cost requirements for crafting the redeemed item, and the time required to complete the task is 1/4 the time it would normally take to craft the final item from scratch. At the end of the redemption process, the redeemer must succeed at a Spellcraft or Knowledge (religion) check (DC = 5 + the item’s caster level) to redeem the item—if the redeemer fails this check, the item is not redeemed; this can be attempted again, starting the process anew.

    I am neither a "fanboi" nor a "hater", but if Paizo were to name the team and/or individuals, that would cause me to seriously consider deleting my account and walking away from here.

    Two things:
    1) A saying that I learned when I was an LT in the Army, "praise in public criticize in private". If this was preventable, then Lisa / Vic should ream someone out, but in private, not here on the boards.

    2) I worked for a computer company for over 35 years, the last 20+ in mainframe system support. And many of those years as a "team lead" (ie. non manager). We once had an external customer demand to know who screwed up a change that created some downtime outside the normal change window, as they were going to "personally see that person get fired." My answer was the team did it, and if you want to blame anyone, as team lead, then blame me. Needless to say, I did not get fired, and that customer wasn't to happy that he was stood up to, but he learned to deal with the disappointment.

    Woo Hoo !! The heat and humidity broke yesterday afternoon, so we went for a walk and had a campfire last evening. Fire, Treats, Beer (Hard Cider for me). Life is good!

    DM rolls:

    ?: 1d20 ⇒ 41d4 ⇒ 4

    Adolina leads the way thru the Fort, which she finds is now deserted. Going back for Jakardros and Shalelu, you and they search the Fort diligently hoping to find out further clues to what happened, as well as if there are further threats from the Kreeg clan of ogres.

    In the commanders old room, you find a box secreted behind a wall panel, and upon opening it it is a serious of love poems to someone named Myriana, who lives in Whitewillow. Jakardros tells you that place is more commonly called Shimmerglens, which is not far from the Fort. He also tells you that the Fort commander would take three day walks into the area, and he is now excited that perhaps the Fort commander is still alive.

    You find notes in what was probably the room that the lamia was in, detailing that the ogres have a stronghold at the top of Hook Mountain. You also find a scroll in her room of which she has listed every citizen of Turtleback Ferry who received a Sihedron tattoo from her as “favorite customers of Paradise.” Kaven’s name is on this list with a circle around it. The list itself bears only this intriguing header: “Those who have agreed to grant their greed to the master’s need.”

    Jakardros suggests that you either go to the Shimmerglens to see if the Fort commander is still alive, or back to Turtleback Ferry to investigate this list.

    Next?
    Level Map Updated

    You have three or so choices:
    1) back to Turtleback Ferry to investigate
    2) Shimmerglens to perhaps find the Fort commander
    3) Hook Mountain to take on the Ogre clan
    4) Head back to Magnimar and report to the Lord Mayor what you have found.

    Right now I am running 3 PbP and with most Paizo material and it can be a big headache. I no longer even try to keep up with the players character sheets. As my current games finish (hopefully one early this fall), I am going to streamline the character process down to: just the P1E CRB or the P2E CRB; and also the Spheres of Power (SoP - 3rd party magic system).

    So GO Paizo. I just wish I could download the playtest documents now, but I understand holding off. I do have it marked on my calendar, and please have your store/web folks set it up so it goes live at 00:01 Pacific Coast time on the 2nd. I'll set my alarm for 02:55 (New York time) and download and read then.... heh

    Color me cautiously optimistic also.

    Slight digression: I was overly optimistic about Starfinder, because I was a SyFy nut (e.e. Doc Smith, Asimov, Heinlein, etc) long before I got into fantasy, and a simplified rule set as well as simplified other aspects looked wonderful. I don't play Starfinder because of the ship-to-ship combat rules, too complicated for me.

    So, if PF2 does not have a bolt on system like Starfinder did with ship-to-ship, then I probably will be much more optimistic.

    Going to wait for the PDFs to come out in August.

    Ohhhh.... I did not know about that. I can see the forums now. For me, I was missing the last two columns on the right, and the third from the right is only half there.

    For those of you using Stylish or otherwise able to use user styles, I shared a Forum Improvement style (this is a link) a while ago because I found the links hard to see in the forums. It still works on the new site.
    How do I install this. On the style page it has a button to install via stylish, but that just installs stylish (which I already have).
    Are you using Firefox 57+? There's apparently a bug in Stylish for Firefox (link) that prevents you from installing styles at this time.

    Crud. Yep, using Firefox 58.x 64 bit. Thanks for the link to the problem. I'll keep it in mind.

    Papa-DRB, those fonts codes are not working. Some folks have a plug in which allows them to see it, but as it stands, the message boards still don't support those tags.

    Dang, you are correct. I thought that I had removed that add on, but I see now that I didn't and now the:

    [color=red]red[/color]

    [u]underline[/u]

    doesn't work.

    edit: but it works when I enable the add-on....
