My group has been obstinate about not switching to PF2. This sounds like one of my 2 dream APs. What is the difficulty of converting to PF1 and does anyone do conversion notes?

Scarab Sages

I am playing a Kineticist for the first time. I'm a pyrokineticist and looking to blast something underwater. Since it is Magical fire, I need to make a Caster Level check...But I cannot find anywhere what a kineticists caster level is?

Scarab Sages

I don't know if anyone is reading these anymore, but I am running this as a precursere for Tyrants Grasp. My PCs are smart. They all have flight capabilities from wands or other items. What is to prevent them from just flying up Gallowspre, thereby skipping most of the encounters? Maybe some kind of warding? Juat curious if anyone else ran into this problem.

Scarab Sages

I'd like to know if anyone has written out the journal of Radvir Giovanni in handout form. I cannot seem to find it, and I'm not super creative about writing stuff like that. I don't just want to rattle off the clues, I'd like to give them something to learn from...Necromancing this thread..LOL

Scarab Sages

I am looking for an index and perhaps a shoort description of 3.5 dungeon magazine city based adventures for levels 6-9..I have bought a few old pdfs from the store, but have none that fit what i want....Any help would be appreciated

Scarab Sages

Revisiting this old post...with the CV-19 crap keeping us detained, I was thinking this could be fun to run on roll20 is there are any good maps and conversions....

Scarab Sages

looking to see if anyone converted these to 3.5/PF1. Thinking it would be fun to run these on Roll20 while I'm out of work due to the stay at home situation...I could do it myself, but lots of work if it's already been done.

Scarab Sages

Dirge bard doesn't do what I want...

Scarab Sages

I want to be able to take control of them, like charm and dominate spells do to the living...If I encounter Zombies or Skeletons, I want to grab control of them

Scarab Sages

So I was thinking Oracle with Juju mystery and spirit vessels...But how do I get the command Undead feat...you need to be able to channel Negative Energy, plus that means no good alignment.I'm stuck...I don't want to go the cleric route....How do I make a kick ass undead controller...I think later in the campaign there will be a lot of intelligent undead...is there a way to handle them too, or should I just go with a Cleric undead destroyer/turner? maybe a Blossming Light?

Scarab Sages

One of my all time favorite APs. Well designed, fun. Everything I'd want.. I was thinking of running it on a VTT that ends with 20. Wondering if there exists any digital file of the maps, or if anyone has created them that they can share. I imagine they can be imported..

Scarab Sages

Isabelle. I'd love to see that. The link doesn't work for me for some reason

Scarab Sages

Getting ready to run Haunting of Harrowstone...for arguments sake, let's say I don't have a PC that can do positive energy damage. Aside from the specific items, is there any way to damage a haunt? If not, I have a feeling it will be a short lived campaign...

Thanks...

Scarab Sages

Are there any of these out there...I think I would prefer them rather than a PbP...

Scarab Sages

it does appeal...is it a play by post, or do you guys Skype/Virtual Tabletop...I have several character concepts I'd like to try out...

Scarab Sages

So is this a play by post or do you use virtual tabletop...

I have several ideas I'd try out...

A Paladin/Monk/Champion or Irori
An Arcanist who specializes in Force magic..A magic Missile/battering blast type
And a Masked Maiden Vigilante.

A caveat...I have been playing PF for 10 yers and gaming various systems since 1980...I have never participated in an online game...I don't think I'd be interested in play by post...I'm more interested in a skype, virtual tabletop game...

My email is Patman21967@comcast.net

Scarab Sages

Would be a perfect game for a vigilante...again..I didn't see any mechanical things

Scarab Sages

is it play by post or do you use something like roll20 or another virtual tabletop...

Scarab Sages

thanks mr. Moreland...I wish I had A) the money B) the time C) the technical know how and D) All of the Above...

Scarab Sages

Thank you for the advice

Scarab Sages

A modular computer game...ie...pay a base amount for the engine, say 50 bucks or so, then have the APs available as DLC for say 20 dollars and have them either single player or coop games, so you can link up with 4 -5 other people and go through an AP or play it solo...I can't believe I'm the only one who has thought of this...LOL...probably not even close...is it feasible? something like Kingmaker but multi player and with any of the APs available...A lot of us with families, multiple jobs etc...want to experience the stories of the APs but find it hard to get together more than 1x every week or 2, but would find it easier to sit down at the PC after the SO, kids, dogs etc...go to bed for a couple hours...So...whatcha think?

Scarab Sages

So I've been playing RPGs since I stumbled into a game store in 1981 and was asked to sit in on an Empire of the Petal Throne game with several players who went on to work for Judges Guild...since then I've played DnD, ADnD, Runequest, Warhammer, Pendragon, Ars Magica, Arcanis, 3.0, 3.5, Traveler but have been playing PF since it'd release some 10+ years ago...Still game on Sunday nights with my buddies from college...that said, I'd like to pick up another game somewhere and figured I might like to try one of the many online games I've been reading about...Between work, dogs, fiancé, her kids, ailing mom etc...I think it would be easier than going out for 6 hours on a night off...It mainly looks like I would be available Mondays and Thursdays...Anyway...If you're looking for another player, and don't mind walking someone through the intricacies of an online game, please reach out

I live in Delaware about an hour south of Philly..so East Coast time, but wouldn't be opposed to something that started later for me, as things are pretty quiet here at nights...

Scarab Sages

Thank you James Jacobs...Another question...everyone but myself in my group doesn't want to switch to 2e..for various reason, mostly that we have a ton of APs we want to do in 1e and being a bit of an older group (been gaming together since college in the 80s) they don't want to learn a new system. That being said, I want to continue my AP subscription because there are stories I'd like to continue exploring...how convertible to 1e is stuff going to be?

Scarab Sages

the answer is not to have a single BBEG dragon...maybe a Dragon with cultists, or dominated NCPCs...I ran Shackled City, which I loved except the Paladin crushed everything...Bosses need mooks who are threatening to a party to take up actions...

Scarab Sages

A paladin would be highly destructive as well....But I think with spells, a gunslinger can be somewhat neutralized...the smite ability of a paladin would be tough to deal with...

I love APs..I like reading and playing through them, but here is my criticism....The "bosses" are always out action economized by the players....you'd have to mitigate the paladins destructive capabilities, while accounting for the other players...you'd have to have several tough fights in order to make them spend their smites, or have several tough NPCs with the BBRG...too many fights at the end of books are against 1 guy...

Scarab Sages

I've been hoping for one of these...wish I had the time to write one, but a book with a different chromatic dragon as it's primary villain maybe with an aspect of Dahak being the overall bad guy...could use lots of kobolds at low levels, dragon cultists, half dragon NPCs and maybe even be a mythic campaign where you have to fight major different color dragons at the end of each book to gain tiers...

Wish I had time to do this myself...

Scarab Sages

Has anyone converted Vecna Lives, Die Vecna Die and Vecna reborn to PF or 3.5? I thought it would make some cool high level stuff..maybe even mythic rules...

Scarab Sages

For some time I have been considering converting the Vecna trilogy, but simply don't have the time..I'd love to do a mythic 12-20th level Vecna Lives, Did Vecna Die and vecna reborn...it's just simply too much work to modify them...

Scarab Sages

I'd like some "professional" advice...instead of running Carrion Crown and spending a year +, thinking of running Shattered Shield, then Reavers Roar with the same PCs, then having them caught in the explosion and come back as level 1 PCs in the Boneyard, sine it says the PCs are warped versions of themselves. What do you think...The PCs can have the back story stuff and maybe some insight into the whispering Way etc....

Scarab Sages

Thanks Ron...I'm pretty far away from running it anyway...Leaning toward running them through Carrion Crown first, to introduce Whispering Way and Tar Baphon...

Scarab Sages

Would you be looking at them playing different characters in Reaper's Roar? Or the same characters at higher level who then "lose" levels when they are turfed into the Boneyard at the beginning of TG?

I would be inclined to do the latter, personally.

I really like this idea...play the PFS scenario, then have everything end in a bright flash and have them wake up in the coffins at level 1....Might just have to do that

Scarab Sages

I don't know why my delivery is slow, but before I get volume 1....aside from Carrion Crown (assuming this is the case) is there anything you'd run to set this up/give flavor/set the tone....

How hard will this be? My group has been playing 1E for the last 10+ years and most of us, me not being one, don't want to change...

Scarab Sages

Will be as an off game in a home setting. Me nor my players have played PFS much.

Scarab Sages

Could I use the one based on Adrian Hestram, or the Absalom on listed above?

Scarab Sages

What I'd like is one that ends with Eyes of the Ten, featuring recurring characters

Scarab Sages

OK, I kinda want to roleplay the PC's interviewing to be on The Peregrine. I was kinda hoping we could all collaborate on the interview process.

Who is conducting the interviews? The Bountiful Venture or a government official from Andoran.

I'll tailor the questions to each PC, but aside from the obvious ( what can you provide the settlement, why are you interested in going, etc..) what kinds of questions would you ask?

I was also thinking a pirate attack, to let the players and other colonists interact might be a cool think. A little low level mayhem to get them invested.

Anyone have any good ideas?

Scarab Sages

Psyched to run this. I love the faction idea and the interview process. Might start a thread about what kinds of questions one would adk

Scarab Sages

Thanks guys. Maybe I'll do some reading and come up with something surrounding the Sun Temple Colony. Seems like a tough thing to just run separate parts of an AP and just tossing random PC's in the middle of a story. Adam, thanks for your kindly response. I might read all the material y'all listed and piece together my own stuff.

Scarab Sages

I'm wondering if there are any ideas out there to run my players through to give them a lore/feel for the upcoming AP? I like the players, even with running a 1 shot or 2, to just get a little history, lore, feel for the upcoming campaign, especially those not too familiar with the history of Golarion

Scarab Sages

Yeah. I thought of that. Has anyone done anything similar. I think i have the low level stuff solved with a large tribe of white kobolds. Probably get me through 1-3

Scarab Sages

Here is a general outline. Any advice or collaboration is welcome

I'm thinking of having the big bad guy be modified mythic dragon. His motivations are to gather up all the Orbs of Dragonkind and destroy them. He will have a cult following and part of his mythic ability is controlling dragons of all Neutral and Evil alignments. At low levels it will be a lot of kobolds, lizard men, half draconic creatures and drakes. As the PCs advance, obviously lots of dragon fights. I thought something cool would be to have each PC unlock certain powers against a specific type of dragon as they increased in level. Either a kind of bloodline power or by giving them to opposite domain powers and spells to the type dragon they are keyed. The players need to recover, but not use the Orbs, before the BBED can get to them, of course, they will fail occasionally, making for some tough battles.

I'm thinking of making it span a lot of Golarion. Kinda epic in scale.

Any thoughts?

Scarab Sages

So, I'm running Way of the Wicked, about to 1/3 of the way through book 5...Was hoping to run this, but since it has been 2 years in the making, might move on to something else...I don't like starting something without the completed works in hand...I could always start, and if it's not done, pick up the writing of the end myself, but that requires work, which I don't have the time for...

Gary, give us an update please?

Scarab Sages

This goes back to the old phrase " You can't please everyone". People need to understand the "s+&% happens". I'm not in the "game" but geez, I can surely put myself in that place. I had several good discussions with Gary McBride when first starting to run WotW, and he was a very nice man, and very enthusiastic and helpful with his comments and suggestions.

Sometimes you need a little break to catch your breath, deal with loved ones etc....I think 90% of the gaming community would understand this. But, there are always the people who say " I paid for it, stick to the schedule" . I understand that they are there. In a smaller way, I deal with that too. I'm in the hospitality industry, managing bars and restaurants. People want what they want...I merely suggest that you cannot make everyone happy, so do the best to communicate what is going on, then if people cannot accept that things are a little late, oh well..you tried. By communicating you let people know you still care, but s!$$ came up. Just dropping out make people worry, speculate, start rumors etc....That was what I wanted to avoid with this post. I was hoping someone knew what was happening, or Gary or his partner would respond to squash the rumors. I saw a lot of them while searching for an update on the project and future endeavors.

To all the developers and publishers out there, for every one person who b@&%%es and complains, remember there are hundreds of others who appreciate your hard work and ideas to make our gaming time, which for most of us is a diversion from the stresses of everyday s@!#, more enjoyable...

Well, Super Genius has become Rogue Genius from what I have heard. I agree Mr. McCoy, and I'm not busting balls at all, I am just saying I hope everything is OK with him and his company. I loved Way of the Wicked, I backed the creature cards, but I did not get in on the Throne of Night. I am definitely going to pick it up if it releases in full..Just hope it's not on GRR Martin or Robert Jordan time....

Scarab Sages

Been thinking of a few side quests between books 2 and 3, or some good alternate stuff to allow the players to run some good characters in the same setting. I was thinking about having them do some Mitran characters to investigate the Horn of Abbadon right after the PC's leave.

Well, let's hope it is temporary. Sometimes real life tends to interfere in gaming. Let's hope we hear something soon...

Scarab Sages

I need to get book 6 for Way of the Wicked. I was also looking forward to Throne on Night, at least reading it. I can order the PDF for book 6, but it seems like they are not printing any more copies.

Has anyone heard from Mr. McBride? It would be a real shame if this talented small company fell by the wayside.

Any news would be cool...

Scarab Sages

My group is only 3 PC's, a Magus, A Cleric and a Gunslinger...I was thinking maybe of making her some type of Rogue, perhaps keeping the swashbuckler thing going.

Scarab Sages

So, they finished funeral procession, leaving one brother and Eldara Lilybrook alive but unconscious, then on to There is no honor. Took the job from Lavinia, and proceeded to clean up the Blue Nixie. A tough fight, but they persevered.

Now I need to figure out where to have Vander Anderhoff and Eldara Lilybrook try and exact their revenge on our heros....

Next Monday it's off to the Vault. Still could use another player or 2...Anyone in Northern Delaware? LOL
